mission to Pak istan to help devise practical ways of reclaiming 27 million acres of land poisoned by salt deposits Kennedys commitment was made to Pakistan Presiden Mohammad Ayub Khan during a one hour and 40 minute meeting at the White House Press Secretary Pierre Salinger said the two chiefs of state discussed Pakistans economic development problems and the role that U S aid may play in solving them They postponed until Thursday discussion of the Pakistan Indian dispute over Kashmir the other major item on the agenda for top level talks during Ayubs state visit Secretary of State Dean Rusk called the economic discussion extremely practical and productive He said economic develop ment in Pakistan is off to a very goodstart The Pakistani leader presented two handmade rugs to Ken nedy a painting by a Pakistani artist for Mrs Kennedy and two boxes with undisclosed contents for the Kennedys chil dren Caroline 3 and John Jr eight months Pakistan officials feel that Kennedys reaction to the Kash mir issue may provide an swer to their suspicions that the Kennedy administration is following a proIndia policy detrimental to Pakistan In the city of Jubbulpore in central India Tuesday night PrimeMinister Nehru spoke up sharply on the Ayub visit here charging that the Pakistan chief is misrepresenting U SIndian Change he asks Journal is being abused By GEOFFREY GOULD WASHINGTON is record not always a record Answer When its the Congres aional Record The Congressional Record is the bible of Capitol Hill as it is for manycitizens who make it their business to keep up with what Congress is doing Yet this daily journal of what is said arid done in both houses is not an exact transcript at all times The reason is contained in three words tend revise and ex REPRESENTATIVES who rise to address the House invariably precede their remarks with this sentence I ask unanimous con sent to revise and extend my re marks The unanimous consent is always given And the formula gives the speaker the right to edit what he says as taken down by the official shorthand report ers He may change a word add a sentence or a paragraph leave out a section Senators have the same right although they do not often use the revise and extend formula on the floor When the record appears the next day it carries the changed version not the exact words that were said on the floor if the member has exercised his revise and extend privilege T IS POSSIBLE for a reader to tell that something has been changed left out or added Some senators and representa tives dont think this is right They argue that the Congression al Record should be an exac public record availabl e to al without any monkeying with thi script One of these is Rep Paul C Jones DMo who also objects to the high cost of producing the Record He said recently that a survey he made showed we coulc save about million a year by limiting the kind of extraneous things printed in the Records ap pendix such as the winning essay in a high school contest The Record varies in length each day depending on how much activity there is in Congress It costs an estimatedaverage of a page to produce From Jan 3 through June 30 of this year the Record totaled 1609 pages including 4998 pages of appendix At a page thi comes to The budge for fiscal year 1962 which startec July 1 estimated the Record would run to 22000 pages at a cost of million On the inside relations Nehru said he was amazed at the calumny of Ayub in suggesting that India had asked for U S military aid We have sought economic help mainly in the form of loans he added Onthe Kashmir issue Ayub has contended that the United States should use its influence with Nehru to bring him to the conference table for negotia tions on a Kashmir settlement American officials have not been eager to step into the quar rel between two governments friendly to the United States And if they must do so U S officials would prefer that the talking be done quietly without arousing rancor in India and Pakistan Kashmir is regarded here as a highly emotional dis pute between brother nations The little state is divided with Pakistan holding the mountain ous regions and India occupy ing the fertile vale which it has incorporated into Indias system of states India has refused to hold a plebiscite among Kash mirs predominantly Moslem population Auto turns
