Ike Cruises to Bermuda. Aboard the U.S.S. Canberra, Ike takes advantage of bright sun to bake out his persistent cold, and attends St. Patrick's Day services with the crew. The cruiser moves through water. President Dwight Eisenhower and some other men mill about on deck. Two missiles rise up from below decks. Sailors attend church service (mass?) on deck. A sailor pins a carnation on Ike's lapel (green, apparently - though the footage is B&W so we just have to take their word for it).
