The Post even quoted CIA men. directly and in- diiectly. including a telephone conversation with McGeorge Bundy. Kennedy's special assistant. And Monday night a CBS correspondent said Bundy supplied much of the material for the Post article. Pierre Salinger, White House press secretary, said the Life story pointing the finger at the President is "absolutely and completely without foundation." But there has been no indication from the White House that Kennedy has ordered an investigation of the leak or intends to do anything about it. And meanwhile the Washington Evening Star backs up the Ufe story. It said Monday: "Competent sources toid the ar that Mr. Kennedy did tell is advisers to cooperate (with le Post reporters) and that some them refused to do so." The Star said Secretary of Dense Robert S. McNamara was e who refused. The President will happened. It was quite a chronology.

Stevenson promptly and repeatedly denied the Post account. He said hi; view was the opposite. Kennedy finally, but alter some days, let it be known that Stevenson had backed his decision to have a showdown. But at no time e )'e on has Kennedy either criticized Post story or denied its accuracy. Kennedy did not say that Stevenson had not first proposed concessions to Russia. That Stevenson supported Kennedy's decision, once it was made, can be taken for granted. His usefulness would be ended if he didn't Kennedy called on his council to get the members' advice. It has to be assumed that each would give his most honest advice, even if it disagreed with that of everyone else in the room. It is out of the different opinions, and the conflict of opinions, that the President could reach a decision. Even if Stevenson at first advised concessions, this hardly justify the public belit tling inflicted upon him by t "non-admiring official" in t Post article. But, just because there was leak on what happened and because Stevenson was belittled, two serious questions are left 1.

(API Electronics To End Misprints of Stamps Studied WASHINGTON !AP)-A plan to use electronics to prevent misprints on postage stamps was disclosed Tuesday by the Post Office Department. The move, involving an electric J'e on the printing press feeding the mechanism, admittedly is a result of the recent furor over the m i s p r i n t i n g of the 4-cent Dag Hammarskjold commemorative stamp. The stamp became the subject of nation-wide controversy after it was discovered that a't least 400 stamps were printed with a plate inversion which threw the yellow background off-center. The Post Office was criticized in some quarters because it flooded the stamp-collecting marke'. with deliberate misprints to wash out the inflated value ot the original misprints. James F. Kelleher, special as|, sistant to Postmaster General J. Edward Day, said the electric eye will be used to detect sheets had of stamps which might be moving onto the printing press wrong end first during the second of twn color-printing operations.
