Service WASHINGTON Speaker Sam Rayburn is the star a President Kennedys weekly meetings with the Dempcratij leaders of Congress From th President on down every one plays up to Mr Sam The evolution of the relation ship between the House speaker and the President is one of those fascinatint stories about politi cians the art o politics an absorbing study Rayburn was never very much impressed by the youthfu Mas sachusetts representative who came under his eye in January1947 fresh into politics Rep Kennedy was often absen from Rayburns beloved House He did not particularly distin guish himself in committee He was more a loner than a team man FURTHER RAYBURN is never pleased when one of his boys decides to move over not up be sure to the Senate As a confirmed House man Speaker Rayburn cannot comprehend or chooses not to the impulse that moves a member of the House to try for the Senate So his relation ship with Kennedy languished The next chapter came in 1959 when the speaker began to plan the campaign of his protege Lyndon B Johnson for president The obstacle that loomed bigger bigger in Sen Johnsons path was of course the youthful senator from Massachusetts On the morning after Ken nedys nomination Sen Johnson was asked by the partys new leader to go on the ticket as the vicei presidential nominee Sen Johnson consulted his advisers most important of whom was the speaker and with only one or two exceptions they all told him to say no BUT SEN JOHNSON said yes In the heat of the negotia tions Rayburn had a few well chosen words for Robert P Kennedy Sen Kennedys poli tical manager none of which he minced When the nominations were finally made and the acceptance speeches over Kennedy went to Hyannis Port and Sen Johnson to his ranch in Texas During this period no on was less happy than Rayburn about the turn of events When candidate Kennedy announce that he would deal with the religious issue in a meeting with the Protestant ministers a Houston onr his first campaign invasion of Texas and th South Rayburn was deeplj troubled Along with many other Texans he was afraid tha Kennedy had chosen the wrong place the wrong audience anc the wrong time 10 answer questions being raised about his religion AS IT TURNED out however the speakers concern gave way for the first time to muted enthusiasm on that JKennedy tour of Texas In speech after speech introducing the presi dential nominee to his follow Texans Rayburn exchanged the scowl for the smile and finally the smile for unmixed enthu siasm He had been sold These days when Speakei Rayburn leads the leaders to breakfast with President Ken nedy he sits on Kennedys BURSTING WITH AP A reporter looks over some of nearly this week Officials say the books 600 tons of discarded California state which are headed

p o n ents criticized the measure as socialistic welfare egislation of a type that will be ome more expensive as the ears go on Others contended he measure was cumbersome nd contained provisions that vere against the clear intent of Congress when it initiated the program by passing t h e KcrrMills Act The vote on the measure which now goes to the Senate was 8812 The measure carries no appropriation and money to implement it will have to be supplied in a separate bill The measure as passed has been termed unworkable by Irene Smith a member of the board of social welfare But pro ponents of the bill said the pro visions to which she objected are necessary to retain control of the program in local com munities rather than the state board right Sen Mansfield the Senate leader

reatype war If such a war should erupt the United States would be at a dis advantage because its forces are thinly spread and it is short on air lift and sea lift U S OFFICIALS said there is no serious thought as of now of direct American mili tary intervention Not all U S officials are pes simistic some said they still believe the royal Laotian army whose will and readiness to fight has
