number of women at each of our workshop type of meetings Its no mean compliment when you can pull milady away from such attractions at the Nieman Marcus department store or the Dallas Trade Mart The featured speakers outside our profession included person able young Robert Kennedy the attd Gov Luis Munoz Marin of Puerto Rico Both of them but par ticularly the boyish attorney general madethe headlines in the Dallas newspapers Bob Kennedy started out by expressing some disappoint ment that he hadnt been able to go into a huddle with the Dallas publisher who only a few days before as a guest in the White House had directed some highly uncomplimentary remarks at the President In a story or two told with a broad grin Bobby disarmed most of his editorial critics in the audience One of them had to do with the fact that its much easier to make promises in acampaign than it is to make deliveries in office In the question and answer period that followed the lunch eon talk one editor tried to get the attorney general to predict what lies ahead for Jimmy Hoffa Kennedy however took the position that because the case is in process of adjudica tion it would not be appropri ate for him to express an opinion j Another question had to do with extending the antitrust legislation to big labor unions While granting that xmder pres ent conditions there is the pos sibility of power abuse

negotiated agreements with Communist bloc countries to sel annually for the next four ears But the price was less than one cent a pound and experts predicted Cuba would get mostly bartered goods in
