press secretaries for President and former President Eisenhower swapped notes and each figured he had about the best boss in the world Pierre Salinger Kennedys press secretary and James Hagerty who held the job in the Eisen hower administration spoke at the 15th newspaper guild memo rial lecture at the University of Minnesota My relationship with President Eisenhower was like father and son Hagerty said Outside of my own father hes the greatest man I ever knew Salinger described President Kennedy as a man of action who probably has a keener under standing of communications than anyone Ive ever seen1 They agreed the job of press secretary has become tremen dous He is a spokesman for the President a schedule maker and in Hagertys words a circus mover of about 250 aides and newsmen on presidential trips Hagerty said the secretary is an advisera buffer and if needed a fall guy He estimated he also got about eight calls nightly between 11 pm and 7 am Salinger said the greatest re sponsibility is speaking for the President and the care with which you have to weigh what you say Nothing is more important to day than for people to know what the President is doing and say ing he said Hagerty agreed but said its discouraging that polls show comics and sports are better read than front pages Both said they are trying to promote free flow of news to the public Salinger said Kennedy wants the freest possible access to information Hagerty recalled he used to take some information stamped secret for no reason and tarn But bpth said its a job to con vince everyone that a president communicates enough and has enough leadership I heard that same nonsense V M MOLOTOV Future of Molotov in doubt VIENNA Austria WVA Vienna Moscow express train bore for mer Soviet Foreign

out the area around the embassy for about 20 minutes Austrian authorities confirmed that Molotov and his wife Pau lina boarded the ViennaMoscow express here and crossed the border into Czechoslovakia at Ho henau at 11 pm There was no indication of just what was in store for Molotov in Moscow although his denunci ation by the congress was consid ered a preliminary to actual loss of party membership

benefits for workers wh had exhausted theirs But an administration bill mak ing permanent changes in the in surance system broadening cov erage increasing benefits and raising taxes has been in the House Ways and Means Commit tee without action since June Kennedy appointed a commit tee headed by Robert Aaron Gor don University of California economist to study the method by which the government arrives at its estimates of unemployment The committee is to make recom mendations for any needed im provements Secretary of Labor Arthur J Goldberg who suggested the study remarked it was es sential that the public have complete confidence in the sta tistics Early this year some ques tions were raised about the validity of the unemploymen Figures cited by governmen spokesmen especially to whai extent these represented fam ily breadwinners out of work The Ways and Means Com mittee for example heard test imony that samplings in Ohio cities showed among the long erm unemployed a high con tent of single persons of wom en working until marriage un ii pregnancy or until they ob tain some special earning oals such as money for Christmas purchasing The study Kennedy ordered presumably would be aimed either at proving the validity of the unemployment totals now n 22nd Soviet On trips Hagerty said the press party congress last secretary has to be a mother mancecl nat and his fol hen I respect
