Windstorm Batters New South Wales


SYDNEY, Australia, June 10—The worst storm in 25 years battered 500 miles of the New South Wales coast today with hurricane-force winds causing damage esti- mated at more than $22 million.

Sydney was a city of chaos as winds up to 64 miles an hour—the second strongest ever recorded here—tore roofs off houses, smashed windows, and blew down walls and electric wires

The storm was felt from Newcastle, about 100 miles north of Sydney to the Victoria State border. The main coastal highway be- tween Sydney and Mel- bourne was ‘cut by flloods.

Ike’s Decision .... .

Second-Term Race More Uncertain

OUT OF THE weary, anx- ious vigil at Walter Reed Hos- pital this weekend, two signfi- cant facts now emerge:

There is in- creasing un- certainty that President Eis- enhower will run for a sec- ond term.

The public statements by some Republi- can politi- cians, acting as if nothing had happened Drummond and suggesting that everything will soon be as it was before, are wishful and misleading.

It is no service to Mr. Eisen- hower to pretend that he won't have to reconsider very

fully and very earnestly, his |

post-heart attack décision. He will.

THOSE WHO KNOW the soul-searching which led up to the President’s announcement agree that the facts. as Mr. Eisenhower will see them, are these:

© The President is very mindful of the escape clause which he carefully attached to his willingness to accept renomination. As stated to his March press conference that escape clause was: He would run only if he “felt absolutely up to the performance of his duties” and he made it clear that he would reexamine his decision right up to the Con- vention if circumstances re- quired.

® His new illness and opera-

tion will raise the profound- | est doubts in Mr. Eisenhower's own mind as to whether he can adequately discharge the heavy, exacting duties of his office another four and a half years.

® The President will now have to go through the same kind of inner self-examina- tion to decide all over again whether he can conscientious- ily run, | @ Mr. Eisenhower will rest ‘his own decision on his own \feelings about his own strength and stamina and not | primarily on the doctor's re- |port that he can “safely” | carry on.

| 1 AM NOT suggesting that the President's second deci- si0n may not in the end be the same as his first—that is. yes, he feels up to it.

| What I am reporting is that

| Mr. Eisenhower's “I'll run” de- cision—to which a very im- portant condition was attached —Iis automatically out of the

|} window. A wholly fresh deci-

\sion will have to be made.

| There is no certainty that the President will feel the same as his doctors. His final an- swer will almost inevitably re- main in doubt for a month to six weeks.

_ One can understand the anx-

| jety and depression of the Re-

| publican leaders. Hence their |

tendency to want to make it | appear that there could be no /doubt that Mr. Eisenhower will certainly be the candidate. | Tt is to Mr. Eisenhower's ‘eredit that the nomination again becomes a question | mark.

This means that the favor- able medical reports, however encouraging, are only permis. sive. The doctors may be less influential than before. The decision will be Mr. . Eisen- hower's and those who are closest to the scene know that it is going to have to be made all over again.

UNQUESTIONABLY Eisenhower's illness the Republican nomination, affects the Democratic nomi- nation and, even if the Presi- dent runs again, may affect the election.

The extent to which it bears on the Democratic nomina- tion is illustrated by the fran- tic, almost unseemly, haste— within 26 hours of Mr. Eisen- hower's entering Walter Reed Hospital—with which Gov. Averell Harriman announced that he was a candidate—or, more accurately, again an-

nounced that he was a candi- | | date.

On his recent Western trip Mr. Harriman made it abundantl¥ clear that he was
