Kennedy flatly predicted that basic American Soviet differ nces will give rise to further rises large and small in the months and years ahead But he said this is no reason 6 halt the search for genuine leace He said Americans hould be satisfied in mind and leart that they are doing every hing possible to a void the ter ors of nuclear war The President assessed East West relations in a major
