  • Description

    President Eisenhower returned to the U.S. June 26, from his two-week 23,000-mile tour of the Philippines, Formosa, Okinawa, and Korea - the last expected in his eight years of office, ending January 1961. Vice-President Nixon and Secretary of State Herter were at St. Andrews Air Force base near Washington to greet the President.

    Mr. Eisenhower looking fit, solidly grasped the hands of his wellwishers. He described the tour as "pretty good". Returning with him were his son John and daughter-in-law Barbara.

    Four black spots marked the last months of this halfyear: the Paris Summit collapse, the cancellation of his visits to Moscow and Tokyo, and the anti-American group in Okinawa seeking re-union with Japan.

    Reporting to the nation on television June 27 Mr. Eisenhower saw no reason for despondency over the cancelled visits to Moscow and Tokyo, but pointed rather to the acclaim of millions of people of the 27 countries he had visited in the past ten months.
