Background: President Eisenhower holds another news conference today. And he will use the opportunity to appeal for more foreign aid funds. (ROLL CUE) Last night, however, pleasure came before business for the president and his family.
Mister and Mrs. Eisenhower...their son Major John and his wife and four children...boarded the presidential yacht "Barbara Anne" for a cruise down the Potomac. The occasion: the Eisenhower' 42nd wedding anniversary...and occasion that prompted Mamie to say "Another year... another year" as she and the president welcomed the younger members of the family aboard. Dwight David, ten years old, Barbara Anne, nine, Susan Elaine, six. Mary Jean, two...all want along for the ride. And for the kids, the chefs came up with their favourite dish: hamburgers and potato salad.
This is the first time Mister Eisenhower has used the yacht since he vacationed in Newport, Rhode Island last September. An evening on the river for the first family.
