Edgar Hoover Director FBI was by President Kennedy artel so far as knows he intends to remain on the job However The says that some Washington pre dict that Hoover will be out of the top FBI jobby summer direct Inquiry brought no confirmation of wich a prediction but one can always wait for a summer to come Hoover has given 40 years of his life to the FBI and expects to give more years Why Is it that the rumor is so often spread that J Edgar Hoover will resign when it Is quite well known will not resign but could of dismissed by his chief the WONT RISK INTEGRITY Hoover is not likely to make it easy for anyone by he choose to risk the integrity of the FBI by making it easy for anyone to use it politically Hie day must come when Hoover will not be able to continue In his job for such a Hmo comes to all men unless they die with boots on When that day comes It would be J Hoovers hope that his successor might be person In ttm FBI and not some politician who could use this mighty of ment to the disadvantage of the American people Whenever it has been proposed the FBI be expanded into a national police force Hoover has opposed it He has also opposed amalgamating the FBI with the Secret Serv ice the Bureau of Narcotics the investigative agencies of the Immigration Service and State Department because it has always been his theory of operations that the only way to pro tect the people from a organiza tion Is to limit its functions AVOIDED UNDUE EXPANSION There have been times when tine FBI was so popular that Hoover could have got any measure he sion beyond efficiency as he avoided becoming an independent agency the Depart ment of Justice Whereas in the past di rect attacks on J Edgar Hoover the current campaign is more subtle It is devoted to imminent depar It is aman

that one The of its purpose and the atomic submarines which it was expected that Rickover would not succeed in building So it is now with J Edgar Hoover There are some who are anxious for him to retire and some outsider perhaps someone whoso green file Would make startling reading chosen in his place They spread this report that he is on bad terms with Robert Kennedy the who Is Hoov ers chief Robert Kennedy Is an man who In the Investigative functions of Congress He knew his way around the FBI before he became he has avoided any political mistakes or getting in in a controversy with Congress It is not likely fall lorthe and plotting always on in Washing lon as they do in world capital For to J Edgar Hoover would start such a fracas as no one nota person with political political sense Those who hopefully speculate on the prospect of Hoovers resignation have been talk ing to the wrong Insiders But then that is so generally any capital where the real are those who work on the
