  • Description

    In Washington, President Eisenhower told a crowd which had gathered for the lighting of the national Christmas tree that we do not wish to enslave or control any other nation. With his grand-children and other members of the first family looking on, Mr. Eisenhower pushed a button to set aglow the 7,000 lights on the 75 foot spruce tree near the White House grounds. A gentle rain fell during the half-hour ceremony. The Eisenhower will spend Christmas day at the White House and they'll spend the remainder of the holiday at Gettysburg. In his brief speech last night he said we will never use our strength to disrupt world peace.
