"Welcome Home" Dinner
Set for Eisenhowers
GETTYSBURG, Pa.. Jan. 14 GAP).—Normally frugal citi
zens of Gettysburg are clamoring to buy 112.50 tickets for a
“welcome home” dinner for President and Mrs. Eisenhower.
So great is the demand for tickets that luck is playing a
part in determining who will break bread with the Eisenhowers
a week from tonight, after Mr. Eisenhower steps out of office
as president.
Only about 200 dinner tick
ets are available, becausd of
the limited capacity of the
Hotel Gettysburg’s dining room.
The committee in charge,
which includes some old friends
of the Eisenhowers, decided to
meet the imbalance between
supply and demand by allo
cating tickets to some 60 or
ganizations.
In turn, each organization
had to meet the problem of
deciding which of its members
got tickets. For the most part,
these organizations took care
of their members with great
est seniority, then drew lots,
for any tickets left over.
If you live outside of Adams
County, of which Gettysburg
is the county seat, you can
Eisenhower Is Eligible
For Pension; Nixon Isn't
By th* Associated Press 11
President Eisenhower is sure 1
of receiving at least $20,000. a
year from the Federal Govern- I
ment when he leaves the White .
House, but Vice President
Nixon and Henry Cabot Lodge,
the losers in the 1960 presi
dential and vice presidential
races, are too young to start
collecting their regular civil
service pensions.
The amounts Mr. Nixon and
Mr. Lodge receive some years
hence will depend on the
amount of their contributions
to retirement funds.
Mr. Eisenhower, the only
office-holder covered by spe
cial law, will be entitled to
$25,000 a year plus $50,000 in
tax-exempt expenses for office
space and aides, if he elects
to take the retired pay for
former Presidents.
But he is reported to have
told friends he would like to
have his five-star Army rank
restored. He resigned that rank
when he ran for President in
1962.
A bill is being prepared to
restore his Army status and to
give him the option of accept
ing the presidential retired pay
or the lower Army retirement
income of $20,543 a year, plus
a small staff and other ex-I
penses.
There is no special retire
ment law for formter Vice
Presidents. Mr. Nixon is
covered, however, under the
general retirement law for
Senators, Representatives and
others.
Some Federal pensions start
at 60 years of age depending on
years of service, others at 62.
Mr. Nixon was 48 on January
9. He has served about 14 years
in the House, Senate and as
Vice President. He has credit
also tor 3*£ years of service in
the Navy in World War 11.
Mr. Lodge, who is 57, counts
Federal service totaling 22
years as Senator and ambas
sador to the United Nations.'He
had some Army service also in
