desperate fight of his to help medical experts restore use to his left leg which was practically severed in an acci dent William Hunt 37 a father of Detached look at m a hassle JFK and the press UPI White House Reporter By MERRIMAN SMITH WASHINGTON that voices are lower and emo tions a bit more stable it is possible to take a more de tached view of President Ken nedys recent relations with the press At his residence in Palm Beach Fla on Dec 31 the President followed his practice of a year earlier and invited a group jof 35 reporters to a nonattributable review of 1962 and preview of 1963 They were permitted to file lengthy stories over the next few days giv ing his views in detail and stopping short on source identi fication Some British reporters not in Florida but who were per mitted to read a transcript of his remarks at the State De partment used several direct quotations This quite naturally led to embarassment much heated discussion in the office of press secretary Pierre Salin ger and a somewhat emotional determination within the White House itself never again to have the President put in such a position Salinger for example wrote a prominent editor I am afraid however that the nu merous breaches of this par ticular backgrounder par ticularly by the organizations which were represented means that there will be no more of these With no thought of challeng Ing Salingers influential posi tion and quite aside from pres ent feelings it seems a fair be that Kennedy will continue to use the background system o contact with reporters Possibly the New Year convocation in Palm Beach will be alerted or heavily re stricted but the simple truth is that the President frequent ly feels the need to communi cate with the public here and overseas without stating hi message in precisionary term which would be involved in di rect quotation and outright at tribution For example in the Palm Beach backgrounder he spoke more freely in more detail and in what seemed to be greater frankness than was possible earlier in December when h made a chatty appearance fo an hour on all television and radio networks The P resident liked the re Bulls of his television visit and plans to repeat it But it ma not meet his needs at the end of a year when for example he wants to point out rathe clearly that certain member of congress are major road blocks in the path of legis lative progress For another reason however the background sessions seerr likely to continue although bit more restricted in attend ance or otherwise altered Present at these meetings ar representatives of the pres associations major news maga zincs the nations larger an more influenital newspaper phis the networks Salinger recently has been in tlined to blame virtually anj one but

just wants to create contro versy Hughes said in all probabil ity his administration would be one in which the governor would be putting out his chin and letting someone take a crack at it You know me he said The governor said he decided to include the school bus item after he had received petitions from several sources advocat ing the approach Hughes said he didnt know which religious groups or pri vate schools were advocating the use of the public school buses because the petitions didnt categorise themselves Both Republicans and Demo crats were shocked at the gov ernors open backing of the dual use of the buses Democratic Sen George OMalley DDes Moines said he had no idea that Hughes favored such a plan Sen Clifford Vance RMount Pleasant president pro tern of the Senate said I was sur

the storm of abuse hurled at the hinese delegate when he ad dressed his fellow Communists Friday The uproar was so loud that it is doubtful the 2500 delegates heard much of what Wu Shio Chuan had to say in support of the thesis that the Soviet Union is soft on capitalism The speech was virtually ig nored by the Soviet press Moscow newspapers printed a Tass dispatch which said the Chinese delegate expressed ideas which ran counter to the general line of the international Communist movement and re peated attacks on fraternal parties Cheap asphalt on earth to bring rain WASHINGTON asphalt spread over thousands of square miles of the earths surface could bring rain to coastal deserts and perhaps free cities of smog according to a scientist James E Black of the Esso Research and Engineering Co Linden N J suggested the method for improving the weath er in a report to the American Association for the Advance ment of Science The energy which creates the weather comes from the sun but first it is absorbed by the earths surface and then re turned to the atmosphere as heat radiation Dark surfaces are better solar than lightcol ored ones Black said research with black asphalt coatings and coating containing a white re flecting substance such as gyp sum were carried out in Ari zona Black absorbing patches lie said increased the soil temper ature by as much as 19 degrees and white ones reduced it up to 24 degrees Increasing the surface temper ature 19 degrees Black estimat ed would be enough to affect the weather Twin asphalt coatings Black said could be applied cheaply would last a long time and used over tens of hundreds of square miles of the earths sur face they could produce use ful changes in local weather One possible application for black petroleum coatings would be for covering large areas of arid land near the shoreline or a sea or large lale This might augment the iiv tensity of the sea breeze circula tion bringing in moist air from over the water lifting it to its condensation level and causing cloud formation and subsequent rainfall Black suggested the Libyan coast Australia or such South American locations as the Para guana peninsula of Venezuela as areas where such an experi ment might prove effective The dark coatings he said might be used to stir up stag nant air and relieve the smog conditions which plague many parts of the world
