Eisenhower, the Republican pres- idential nominee, will address the 53rd annual encampment of the Veterans of Foreign Wars in -Los Angeles Aug. 5. In announcing completions of ar- rangements today, Arthur H, Van- denberg Jr., the general's .execu- tive assistant, said in a statement that Eisenhower's appearance at the convention' will be "entirely non-political in nature."

At this Parents Get Life For Killing Child TAMPA, Fla. Three days of punishment which brought death to four-year-old Wayne Dolham have brought life imprisonment to his par- ents, John and Alice Cliffe. Circuit Judge Henry C. Till- man pronounced sentence yes- terday on the Cliffes. It was the maximum sentence under the conviction of second degree murder returned by a jury last week. The Cliffes admitted beat- ing, starving and hanging the child but insisted they were punishing him disobedience and had no idea he would die. He died during the third night of being hanged by the neck so his feet barely touched the floor. Mrs. Cliffe, 27, the boy's mother, had nothing to say when sentenced. Cliffe, also 27, stepfather of the child, said: "I hope the people of this country have learned some- thing from our case, I hope that none will ever have the urge or want to treat a child the way Alice and I treated Wayne."

The Civil Aeronautics Administration radar at Washington National Airport, which reported scores of sightings from to 5 a.m., refrained from transmitting its findings to the Air Force at nearby Andrews Field because "no visual sightings were made." The Air Force said its Andrews Field radar showed nothing, and its 24-hour jet-interceptor patrol re- mained on the ground because it was not notified of the National Airport sightings.

About 3 a.m., an Eastern Air- lines southbound flight was direct- ed into the area but its crew saw nothing in the sky.
