The President

June 1956
New Republic;6/18/56, Vol. 134 Issue 25, p3
The article reports on the health of U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower, and speculations of whether he would be able to contest the next presidential elections. The President yielded to popular demand and has decided to run for the polls as soon as he recovers. But extent of his participation in various matters of national importance is questionable. A number of projects are pending. The official policy towards non-aligned nations is to be determined. School construction legislation which is ready for action in the U.S. Congress may have to be deferred. Hence questions are being raised about whether President Eisenhower can successfully lead the nation in the next four years.
