My work has thrown me into
Wasional close contact with
funeral Eisenhower thr ti.nh the
;ears, but not until last week
'id i have the opportunity to
iobserve him at close ratine in
a is new role as President.
On Monday I joinri Iti other
nembers of Congress at the
While House where we had
unch with the President, later
n the day I shook his hand at
i Congressional reception. and
>n Thursday I accompanied :M
nembers of the House and
Senate to the President's office
or a top-level discussion of the
)id situation. It is evident

l,i''as: Friendly, undi
a man of irresistible good will,
particularly at close range.
The Thursday meeting at the
President's office lasted for !):>
minutes, and it was all busi-
ness. Nobody told a humorous
story, iind if anybody even
smiled, I failed to observe it.
vVe had an over all report in-
volving our national debt, our
lax burden, the Korean War
and the international situation
generally. Much of the infor
mation presented was secret, in
nature. Allen Dulles, Chief of
our Central Intelligence Agency,
Gen. Omar Bradley, Chairman
of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and
Jo'eph M. Dodge, Director of
the Bureau of the Budget, par-
ticipated in the meeting.
When we left the meeting,
press and radio reporters met
us in the President's waiting
room an asked for details of
the conference. But no one
could properlv make public the
details. Speaker Joe Martin
commented briefly that the pie-

almost unbearably difficult.
President Eisenhower looks ex-
ceptionally fit. I hope he can
remain so. He is entitled to
every possible a si stance from
Congress and the Americ-it;
people. It, is in our own Im-m

to the problems which beset us,

Where's the villain?
Some say ' more ears on Ihe road those days." Some point to
reckless youths . . . "lax laws" , , , "drunken driving" . , ,
Rut something else may be more to blame for auto accidents
than any ol these. Darkness. Plain old darkness.
Look at one case. in a ( onnecLieut, area 182 pedes) rians were
killed at night in two years—/ 7.9 on poorly lighted Hi red it.
Busy traffic centers are waking up fast, lighting their death-
trap streets. Salt Lake City cut night deaths !>2', in one area,
Grand Rapids 78'.',, Bridgeport 93' ,' .
Some small communities have been first to pick up the
newest in lighting equipment. Oak wood, Ohio, has the largest
installation of fluorescent street lamps in the country. And
there's a broad-daylight look in Lyndonville, Vermont,' even
late at night. Fluorescent lighting as developed by Oenera!
Electric has now been extended to si reef lighting.
Good street lighting has been a pet project of ours for years.
General Electric engineers work with local olfjcials on other
community problems, too —traffic control, water shortage,
waste disposal, farm and home modernization -wherever elec-
tricity can help | rogress. For progress is our most important
product. General Electric Company. Department 2-12;;,
