Ike Returns to Washington Today; Plans to 'Sit In' at Cabinet Meeting, Jaywalking Legislation Proposed

By The ASSOCIATED Press

GETTYSBURG, Pa., Dec. 1--President Eisenhower will return to the White House tomorrow and hopes to sit in for a time on an afternoon Cabinet meeting.

In announcing this today, White House press secretary James C. Hagerty let newsmen know that the President is in the recuperating stages from last Monday's minor stroke, even though he is reported making steady progress toward recovery.

Jaywalking Law Proposed

BOSTON, Dec. 1--Legislation designed to impose a fine on pedestrians for jay-walking will be filed tomorrow by the A.A.A.'s Massachusetts division.

Pointing to the need for an anti-jaywalking law, Robert S. Kretschmar, executive secretary of the division said: "Jaywalking results in more pedestrian deaths and injuries than any other single action. In spite of all this, Massachusetts is the only state which does not have some type of pedestrian law."

Attempted Assassination

JAKARTA, Indonesia, Dec. 1--The death toll in last night's bloody attempt to assassinate President Sukarno with hand grenades rose to 10 today.

A government announcement said 137 persons in the crowd around the President last night were still in Jakarta Municipal Central Hospital for treatment of shrapnel wounds. Most of them are small children. Seven persons, including two children, were killed instantly.

Government officials expressed grave concern about the possible consequences of the bombing. They declined, however, to discuss possible motives or the persons behind the incident.
