Souvanna Phouma con ence with Soviet Foreign Minis ceaseter Andrei A Gromyko When the conference A spokesman for the British I called Britain had said Lao Sacrifice No clue Nothing asked thus far By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON ifi Since be fore his election President Ken nedy has been putting emphasis on the idea of sacrifice ahead for the American people After 3 months in office he hasnt requested the people to en dure any hardships On the same day last week that he was asked to explain what sacrifices he had in mind his ad PARTLY CLOUDY North Iowa Partly cloudy Friday night warmer lows 56 to

cepting the Democratic nomina tion he said The new frontier of which I speak is not a set of promises it is a set of chal lenges It sums up not t what I in tend to offer the AmeVican peo ple but what I intend to ask of them IT APPEALS to their pride not their pocketbooks it holds out the promise of more sacrifice instead of more security In his inaugural address Jan 20 he said Let every nation know whether it wish us well or ill that we shall pay any price bear any burden meet any hard ship support any friend or op pose any foe in order to assure the survival and success of liber ty This much we pledge and more But this country whether or not it would be wise to get in volved in war on the Asian con tinent has shown great hesitancy about moving into Laos to fight against the Communistled Pathet Lao for the rightwing Laotian government the United States supports Later in his inaugural Kennedy said My fellow Americans ask not what your country can do for you ask what you can do for your country LAST WEEK in Chicago mak ing a talk at a Democratic din ner he left out the following two sentences froh si prepared speech Our greatest adversary is not the Russians It is our own unwillingness to dp what must be done This constant talk of sacrifice without sacrifice being asked for and the statement about our un willingness to do what must be done has been so puzzling that a reporter asked Kennedy at his May 5 news conference to ex plain But Kennedys answer hardly came under the head of what might be considered sacrifice He said he thinks there are a number of things which can be usefully done WE ARE GOING to require a larger effort in space he said He explained he wanted a sponsible consistant effort by labor and management in missile production He said further he wants to per suade labor and management to come to useful national conclu sions on the problems of prices and wages He said he wants a greater ef fort nationally and in local com munities to improve education In addition he said he wants the American people to try for more equal opportunity all people in this country regardless of creed or color Its questionable that any of these points come under the head of sacrifice And if they dont then the President still hasnt ex plained what all the talk of sacri means or calls for day highs 65 to 70 northwest to near 80 southeast Further out
