Straight, Michael
October 1955
New Republic;10/3/55, Vol. 133 Issue 14, p3
The article focuses on Dwight David Eisenhower, 34th president of U.S. who suffered a heart attack on October 14, 1955. The President's attack, cornering after a long vacation and during sleep, was far from mild. It would be callous and reckless to press upon Eisenhower the heaviest of human burdens for another five years, says the author. More likely, he will be partially incapacitated for the remainder of his present term in the White House. Eisenhower's absence will not cause a problem as he has set up the Administration in such a way that policies which are well defined will be carried out even in his absence. The article also contains the author's opinion on the current situation and his opinion about Richard M. Nixon, 37th president of the U.S.
