tory have the outgoing and incoming administrations made as wholehearted an effort to in sure an orderly transition in federal executive power as this year President Eisenhower has extended and Presidentelect Kennedy has accepted the help ing hand without reservation It started on the day after the Nov 8 election when in a tele gram to Kennedy this was be fore the contest was finally de President Eisenhower said I stand ready to meet with you at any mutually convenient time to consider problems of continuity of government and orderly transfer of exeautive re sponsibility on Jan 20 The President proceeded to suggest that Kennedy send one of his assistants to meet with his principal staff assistant Gen Wilton B Persons Later meetings with other Eisenhower aides budget director Secre tary of State and anybody Ken nedy might wish to see were likewise suggested That was a gracious act on the part of President Eisenhow er And let it be said in fairness that the Kennedy acceptance and all that has followed was equally gracious Its this that led me to suggest in the title of this commentary that America is indeed growing up govern mentally AT THE REQUEST of the Presidentelect Clark M Clif ford who had served during the 1960 campaign as Kennedys chief agent for studying trans ferofauthority problems met with Gen Persons and started a whole series of conferences each reflecting a disposition on the part of the outgoing and the incoming administrations to put national welfare above partisan considerations The meeting in Florida on Nov 14 between Kennedy and his defeated rival Vice Presi dent Richard M Nixon now titular head of the GOP was in a sense symbolic of the whole spirit involved in this matter This was followed by announce ment that J Edgar Hoover di rector of the FBI and Allen W Dulles director of CIA would continue in their posts The extended conference be tween Eisenhower and Kennedy was so highly publicized that it needs no more than this pass ing mention here The Presi dentelect went all out in his ex pression of gratitude to Ike HOW VASTLY DIFFERENT this chain of events from that which transpired just a century ago when Abraham Lincoln took over the reins of warthreatened America from his predecessor James Buchanan Lincolns only previous contact with Washing ton was as a oneterm repre sentative in the lower house a dozen years or so earlier He was an undistinguished lawmak er it should be noted too During the fourmonth transi tion period as against 10 weeks seven southern states seceded from the Union Ar senals and other federal proper ty were seized By March 4 1861 when Lincoln finally ar rived by slow train in Washing ton war between the states had become inevitable Whether armed hostilities could have been avoided through cooperation between the incom ing and outgoing administrations is doubtful Buchanan ws a most ineffectual chief executive But the war most assuredly could have been shortened if Lincoln had been properly back grounded in advance INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH and its a proof of how great he had grown in stature in four years under fire Lincoln in considering the real possibility of defeat for reelection by Gen George B McClellan wrote a note on Aug 23 1864 stating It would be my duty so to Ctntimwd en Pift D AP Photofax REGISTRATION DELAYED Alfred Holmes left escorts his son

largest Northwest has been hobbled by a strike since Oct 11 when 28 jet engineers assigned to Northwests DC8 jet airliners walked off the job About 260 engineers are in volved in the latest walkout Mondays action resulted from the airline two weeks ago re suming a SeattletoMiami jet flight using supervisory per sonnel as flight engineers At issue in the dispute are higher pay and flight training for flight engineers DONALD W NYROP NW president said the airline re grets the inconvenience to the traveling public and the severe hardship through lack of income to its employes because of the strike For three months we have made every effort to reach a fair settlement with the engi neers he said At the same time Northwest had watched its resources being drained by the partial strike The airline had offered flight engineers annually for manning the jets over the na tion and on international flights The airline also wanted the flight engineers on the jets to be qualified as pilots
