President Kennedy says it's due in part to the Russians, be cause they're quieter-. He said "we're enjoying the luxury of in ternal dissension." But the spat if it gets bad enough, can wreck the family. Spat and chat in tfie Commu nist family, too. Russians and Red Chinese call names, express dis gust with each other, but Premier Khrushchev drools over the Chi nese ambassador. If the spat gets bad enough, goodby Communist family. Grumbling but not much excite ment in Congress when Kennedy sends his tecord peacetime budget: $98.8 billion. The usual cries: expenses must be cut. Not much fire in the fuss. Kennedy sends Congress his aid to education program, will soon send one on medical care for the aged. Comparative calm in Congress. Neither program seems to have much chance. No wonder. Kennedy himself was skeptical of their chances before he ever sent them to the Hill. Kennedy sends Congress his tax- cutting program to enable consumers to buy more and business to invest more. This got the most reaction and much, if not most of it, has been sour. To help it, Kennedy supporters lit on the feeble idea of trying to add two more members to the conseivative Senate Finance Committee to liberalize it. The result: defeat. This is not fighting, this 's sparring. Business chimes in on the apposite side. Ladd Plumley, president of the U.S. Chamber of Com- nerce, says the plan favors the consumer too -much. Amen, says he National Association of Manu- acturers. The only real heat so far this Burial Insurance Sold by Mail . .

C-520 1418 West Rosedale, Fort Worth 4, Texas, year comes from the Republican criticism of Kennedy's foreign doings. It's been unceasing. Irritated, Kennedy is having his supporters tell the Republicans to pipe down. They won't. He stays mild. In short, Kennedy isn't showing any more sign of tough fighting —the kind former President Truman used to enjoy—than he did in 1961 or 1962. The Kennedy administration got into tiffs with Canada and France. With Canada—because it didn't put American nuclear waiheads on American missiles there. With France — because President Charles de Gaulle snubbed the Kennedy offer of missiles on which he'd have to put his own warheads, of which he doesn't have any. At the same time De Gaulle, whose high-held nose was pointed at the British, too, kept them out of the Common Market. The result: ever since the Allies have been scrambling for a solution which they haven't found. Kennedy is tiying to set up what he calls a multinational nuclear force although no one—and at this moment perhaps not Kennedy himself—seems to know how this would work because American law requires American control of American nuclear weapons no matter where they are. And, if things weren't boxed the Ameii- are back where they started years ago on banni/ig nuclear tests: in a spar- •ing match.

Stock NEW YORK (AP)—Steels were strong In an irregularly advancing stock market early this afternoon. The Associated Press average of 60 stocks at noon was up .5 at 260.2 with industrials up 1.0, rails off .1, and utilities up .4. Gains of fractions to a point or better predominated among key stocks. The list also had small losers and unchanged prices. Steels won renewed buying favor on reports that steel orders are running 10 to 20 per cent ahead of the month-earlier pace. Aside from strength in Chrysler, motors were mixed. Selective gains among chemicals, utilities, building materials and farm implements helped bolster the average. The trend was mixed among rails, nonferrous metals, drugs, aerospace issues, oils and airlines. Tobaccos were lower on balance. The market advance was also backgrounded by news that GM will up its capital spending to, about $740 million this year.
