Immunization clinic by MARCEI,LA IIOFFMANN WENTWORTII--The monthly immunization clinic will he held on Thursday, Jan. 22, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Mount Moosilauke Health Center. In view of the current rubella out-break in nearby towns, women are urged to be immunized. However, the vaccine should be given only if the woman is not pregnant and if she understands that she should not become pregnant for at least three months after immunization with rubella vaccine. If a woman gets rubella early in pregnancy, she may have a miscarriage or the child may be born crippled, blind, deaf or with other defects. If a woman is immune she can not cause a pregnant woman to contract the disease and she can help to protect the baby from birth defects, The Public Health Service Advisory committee on im- munization practices recommends that adolescent and adult females of child- bearing age be vaccinated against rubella as well as against measles, polio, tetanus, diphtheria, whooping cough and mumps. Doctor Bentwood now comes to the center on the second and fourth Friday afternoon from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. to see regular center patients by appointment. Presidential personalities ( co.tinued front page I ) still ill heart kin expansionist. "'I have about as much desire to annex more islands," he said, "'as a boa constrictor has Io swallow a porcupine wrong end to." Still. he never tiredof reminding people that it is the "availability of raw power, not the use of it. that makes for effective diplomacy." One other characteristic apparently served Roosevelt well during his presidency: coolheadedness, "The man's personality was cyclonic," Morris writes, but in times of crisis. "'his turbulence snmothed into a whirl of coordinated activity, while a core of inner stillness developed within. Under maximum pressure, Roosevelt was sunny, calm and unnaturally clear. He was at his best under pressure." Like Teddy, the nation's 35th president, John F. Kennedy, "was a strong president because he was a strong character" in the view of Theodore Sorensen, his White House aide and biographer. And like Roosevelt. Sorensen says, says, and it "helped Kennedy place his gains and losses in perspective." It also apparently gave him the ability to look with a sense of perspective and detach. ment at the pressing business that rolls into the White House. ()nee at a meeting, Sorensen remembers, a staff member told JFK that his decision on a particular matter would he the biggest he would ever have to make. "We get one of those every week." Kennedy grinned. Lyndon Johnson, of course, was a breed apart from Roosevelt or Kennedy. His background--Texas, poor, rural--contrasted with that of Roosevelt and Ken- nedy-Eastern, wealthy, urban. And whereas they were polished in manner, Johnson's "'physical appetites were gross." George Reedy says. But beyond these traits, American voters, it now seems, could never have thrived on decision-making, the give and take of politics." Another trait these two men shared was their love of history. Kennedy knew, Sorensen says, that history gives perspective, for one, teaching that "amenities between nations do not last forever." Above all his other achievements, he was proud to have authored Profiles in Courage. Like Roosevelt, Kennedy also had a sense of humor, "devilish" and anchored in repartee whereas Teddy's was more raucous. This trait "protected him from a sense of self-importance."

Roosevelt on Monday, Winston Churchill on Tuesday, Charles DeGaulle. the next. Sometimes he became con- fused about who he was." And yet, Reedy adds, "LBJ knew power like a salmon knows how to swim upstream." Once he became president, LBJ's appetite for public projects became insatiable, Reedy recalls. "He hated poverty, and he hated it for everyone else. But his domestic projects floundered on two reefs: He passed too many of them and Vietnam drained away so much of the na tion's resources."
