JFK'S MEMENTOS WAIT FOR PERMANENT HOME -- While politicians procrastinated for more than nine years after President J. F. Kennedy was assassinated, the library that will commemorate him is still years from reality and the late president's mementos are gathering dust in the Federal Records building in Waltham, Mass. The $20 million building is still three years away from opening and library site still holds a subway car repair yard, across the street from the Harvard dorm where Kennedy lived as a student.

(AP VVirephoto) * Posters ore popular weapon in Soviet propaganda arsenal The poster was one of thousands recently pasted up in factories, farms, taxi parks, poly. clinics and other state enterprises all over Russia as the government launched the latest offensive in its perennial war against the "green snake of drink." Bright, bold posters with direct, unmistakable messages are tactical weapons in such a war. And, in general, they are as much a fixture of Soviet life as billboards and television commercials arc in the lives of Americans and West Europeans. They exhort, they threaten, they teach, they cajole: not, like Western commercials, to buy this or that aspirin, gasoline or hair cream, but to work harder, drink moderately, pre- Â· vent waste, be "eternally vigilant" and ready to defend the motherland. Other posters herald other campaigns. In virtually every breadshop ^ across the land these days hang attractive placards showing a stylized sheaf of golden wheat tied with a red ribbon. It urges housewives to conserve every gram of bread -- "our dear bread, the staff of life." The "save-thc-bread" effort was started this fall as a poor crop year forced the Soviets onto the international market to buy almost a billion dollars worth of grain from the United States. Posters are also used extensively in traffic-safety drives, fitness campaigns, holiday celebrations anil other cyclical propaganda efforts. Standard placards which always deck the buildings, streets, squares and auditoriums sing the praises of the Communist party, the Soviet police, the armed forces, collective farmers and other sectors of socialist society. By DANIEL (J. HANEY AiMciated PreM Writer CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) More than nine years after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, the library that will commemorate him is still years from reajiiy, slowed by the kind of politics that Kennedy learned in his home stale. Building the library envisioned by Kennedy shortly before he died has meant bringing together several Massachusetts institutions, among I hem the Kennedy family, Harvard University, the 'Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, Boston's ethnic neighborhoods and the slate legislature. II hasn't been easy. The $20 million building is still at least three years away from opening. Its plans haven'I been unveiled yet, and ils site still holds a subway car repair yard. The key to construction of the library has been the yard, a dusty sprawl of trains, tracks and barns across Ihe street from the Harvard dorm where Kennedy lived as a sludenl. Before ground can be broken for Ihe library, the MBTA has to relocate the yard. A new site finally has been chosen for the yard, bul il look a lot of politics. Each time the'subway authority suggested a new site for the car barns, neighborhood residents raised a fuss, and their legislators found new ways to block it. While site after site was rejected, each with a flurry of debate in the Statehouse, deadlines passed for starting con- 'struction. The architect, I.M. Pel,-said he couldn't finish his plans until he did soil tests, and Ihe MBTA said he couldn't dig up. the ground until Ihey moved. And all the while inflalion increased the price and shrank the size of the proposed library When the first plans were made in 1964, library backers Ihought they could build Ihe complex for JIO million, all from private contributions. Inflation boosted ^he figure to $20 million, said Steve Smith, the former presidenl's brother- in-law, adding that Ihe delay "cut our program into less than half in terms of square footage."
