Nixon, who was present at llu
luncheon, said no formal plans
were drawn up.
Mr. Kiscnhower, a baseball and
football player in his college, days
at West Point and new the na
tion's best-known amaieur golfer,
told his guests thai somethini!
should be done to promote grcatcl
interest in competitive athletics,
both as an aid to the nation's
general health and ar a weapon
against juvenile delinquency.
The President said he found sta
listics on the physical condition ol
voung Americans "more alarming
than I thought."
The luncheon gliosis appeared
enthusiastic about the President s
idea and Jack Fleck, who recently
scored a major surprise by win
ning the U.S. Open golf champion
ship, commented, "You can easily
sec the importance of this thing. I
since so many athletes from youth
programs become leaders in the
military and also in civilian life."
Tony Trabert, who recently won
the Wimbledon tennis champion
ship in England, said the aim of
Ihe dnve should be "not to make
big stars, but to help little kids
coming up.
Nixon also addressed the lunch
eon and suggested that athletic-
programs ot scnoois ne reviewed
to see whether moie children
could participate. Along the samp
lines, Dr. Hans Draus of New

However, he let the Indians down
