Back stairs at the White House Watch for a new round of comic takeoffs on the proposed hot line between the White House and the Kremlin An arrangement whereby a President of the United States and a Soviet premier might avert an accidental nuclear war will lend itself inveitably to some of the funmaking which uses Washington as primary target President Kennedy at his news conference a few days ago said he preferred a direct teletype to a telephone to ease war tensions And hes right A direct talk circuit between the Kremlin and the White House could be a nuisance if it became an avenue of bombast and accusation in moments of less than dire urgency An exchange of tele type messages could be more civil virtually as fast as tele phone if not faster and perhaps more important each side would have a written record for quick study There would have to be sev eral shifts of translators avail able day and night seven days a week Premier Khrushchev does not read or speak English Kennedy is similarly limited when it comes to the Russian language Working conditions in the Kremlin may differ somewhat from those in the White House but at this end of the line the President would need the serv ices of at least six translators This would cover three eigfit hour shifts a day and days off Should the hit line turn out to be a teletype as the President prefers this would involve aroundtheclock shifts of com petent teletype operators in addition to the translators These are only a few of the complications in such a system serious complica tions before some prominen1 comedian grabs the idea anc wows the nation with visions of Caroline picking up the phone to Moscow and asking for Santa Glaus Kennedy travels a great deal The system for instantaneous communication with Khrushchev would have to travel with the President It would be a rela tively simple matter to hook up the telephone or teletype circuit to such places as Palm Beach or Newport but the translators

but to ac complish this goal the members of the alliance must keep up their posture of strength Alliance officials said the minis ers found no signs that there has been any change in basic Soviet policy which might facilitate an EastWest understanding On the contrary officials said the minis ters agreed the present Soviet at titude is such that any understand ings reached with Moscow woulc tend to endanger vital Western interests The communique reiterated the determination of the Atlantic pow ers to defend and maintain the freedom of isolated West Berlin The communique made no men tion of the American suggestion that European members of the al liance consider the organization of a multinational nuclear deterrent to stand as a substitute for na tional independent nuclear forces The political argument on nuclear policy remains to be thrashed out by the alliance The ministers agreed to main tain constant vigilance and unity of purpose and also said they re mained ready to examine any rea sonable possibility of reducing in ternational tension It is a prerequisite of any prog ress towards equitable settlement of outstanding international issues that the Alliance should maintain its defensive strength they add ed Dealing with NATOs future de fensive efforts the communique said the ministers agreed that it was necessary to increase the ef fectiveness of conventional forces They further agreed that ade quate and balanced forces both nuclear and conventional were necessary to provide the Alliance with the widest possible range of response to whatever threat may be

on rising federal spending offer the best chance of producing future budget surpluses Going before a blacktie audi ence of business leaders Kennedy called Friday night for an early cut in both individual and cor poration income taxes without saying just how soon he would want the reductions to become effective Omission of his earlier Jan 1 target date seemed well calculated The chief

wai ntil next month to give details Addressing some 3000 members and guests of the Economic Club f New York Kennedy declared This nation can afford to reduce can afford a temporary we cannot afford to do nothing In this fashion he took direct ssue with those congressional conservatives of both parties who contend that tax reduction next year would lead to a dangerously arge federal deficit Presenting the contrary view Kennedy said Budget deficits are not caused by wildeyed spenders but by slow economic growth and periodic recessions And he said the present tax sys tem must bear much of
