Their story lent a bizarre touch to a day of decreasing tension here, following the withdrawal of both U. S. and Soviet tanks from the anti-refugee wall. For the first time since last October, the wall no longer is within surveillance range of tanks from either side. West German police reported Friday night that it was quiet all along the wall. On the Western Allied side, only a handful of U.S. troops stood at the Friedrich- strasse crossing point checking off cial military traffic in and out of East Berlin.

The increased sense of: Unity, among the Western powers is, in Kennedy's opinion,' one of the major accomplishments of ' the. past 12 months. He also points with pride to the initial steps taken under his; Alliance for Progress, the massive new U.S. aid program for Latin America. But final judgment will have to be .withheld on this for a long time. So far there has been a disappointing reluctance among most of the Latin American countries to undertake the reforms necessary to make the program really effective. Critics claim Kennedy's ringing promises to defend the southeast Asian kingdom of Laos against communism were misleading in light of the subsequent decision to agree on a coalition government with the Reds there. But in neighboring South Viet Nam his initiative in bolstering the embattled government. of President Ngo Dinh Diem bids fair to stem the Communist tide at that point. U.S. support of the United Nations operation in the Congo seems, despite considerable congressional criticism of some aspects, to be paying off at this point. Political • •. , By RAYMOND LAHR President Kennedy's first anniversary in the White House finds him at a crest of personal popularity. Recent Gallup polls have indicated that more than 70 per cent of the voters approve of the way he is handling his job. Returning members of Congress—Democrat-, ic and Republican — appear in agreement that he has more support among the voters than he had at the time of the narrow 1960 election victory over Richard M. Nixon. Republicans are not convinced, however, that the President has rallied great public support for some of his piugrams. The GOP response may vary from one region to another, but Republican orators feel free to attack the Kennedy administration budget, farm program and other proposals. . The President made a series of political speeches at fund-raising events during his first year in RALPH IEATHERMAM about this question: "There are almost as many insurance policies and endorsements for the insurance agent to know as there are prescriptions for a pharmacist. Does a local independent insurance agent alone have the professional training to select wisely from among the many policies available to guarantee full and adequate coverage for an insured?"

McNamara appeared to stand higher at the White House than any member of the official family save only President Kennedy's brother, Robert. "Fantastic" is I one descriptive Kennedy has applied to the hard- driving, incisive former Ford Motor Co. president to whom he entrusted management and-' expansion of the world's biggest enterprise. . .-' ;j • ' - : As defense^ secretary, the 45- year-old - executive likewise has stood ace-high so far with Cin- gress, which voted him all he wanted and complained remarkably little when i he refused to spend appropriations he did.riot want. i ' To a considerable extent,: McNamara personifies the Kennedy administration's military policy. Cynics and soothsayers- now wait to see whether the seceetary will fare as well j with lawmakers this session. I Seeds of trouble abound:' AT- leged muzzling of officers' free expression; controversial call • up of reservists •, flip-flop on A r m y expansion (first opposed, then or- lered); freewheeling Pentagon reorganizations; diminished . stature for'armed forces secretaries; alleged inattention to some -professional military advice. McNamara's lack of the human touch, in a leadership job that urgently needs it,| is cause for unrest. The reserve problem is a prime example.. Warnings of the pitfalls apparently went unheeded. McNamara's strategic plan:' In-, vulnerable nuclear forces, able to take a surprise j x blow and then devastate Russia; flexible conventional, tactical nuclear and guerrilla forces for lesser wars. The plan was influenced by many but it is McNamara's in the last analysis. It keeps 2,684,000 men under arms compared . with Eisenhower's 2,493,000.' While . building j up for the long pull, McNamara was plunged into the ' Berlin crisis. He summoned 156,000 reservists! to arms, s en t shiploads of weapons and equipment to Europe, 1 speeded f oV c e modernization, i He developed | new budgetary systems and other management tools for a firmer grasp on'the global' military organization. He took charge personally of aid to Viet Nam, planning monthly trips fp theRacific. ' 'He • quietly reorganized Jus ; department, which yet could cause not-so-quiet repercussions: A new defense supply j agency, defense intelligence • agency, Army department shakeup. j. • He put the defense effort <»n'.a new, higher plateau. Whether it will remain there as the cost implications-become clearer re mains to be seen. Economy . EDWARD COWAN Although an economic recession turned into a strong business expansion in the first year of the Kennedy administration, the President and his aides have been accused of anti-business leanings. Most economists agree that the downturn was reversed too early for it to have been the result of Kennedy pump-priming measures. But they concede that acceleration of federal spending, payment of extra insurance dividends to veterans, emphasis on lowering long-term interest rates and other measures probably contributed to the unusual force with which the economy rebounded. Despite the upturn in production and spending, unemployment failed to decline! until November, and even now is far above the administration's target. But policymakers could take comfort from the unusual stability of prices. Keeping them stable as the economy approaches full employment of men and machines is the major challenge on the 1962 domestic, economic \ front. The President showed that he planned j to play an active role in the fight against; inflation by his companies, asking! them to hold the price line. {Now Kennedy is being watched carefully to see if he will lean as hard on the steel union, which has begun preliminary talks on wages and other contract issues, ; Kennedy inherited a difficult gold-and-dollar drain problem. He took several measures to restore confidence in the dollar and stem the outflow. Partly because of circumstances beyond his control he enjoyed a fair measure of success m this area. " p : But-the dollar deficit is widening again and could become critical : The most far-reaching Kennedy economic proposal was his request to Congress for; broad authority to negotiate reduction and elimination of tariffs on a vast array of goods. 1 • | [| I ' Farm ' BERNARD; BRENNER - i i President Kennedy's first year in office produced a drastic—but not yet permanent—shift in national policy on one of the most vexing of jail home-front headaches: Agriculture. Rapid-fire 'boosts in price sup. ports and temporary' emergency farm bills perked up the farm economy by raising net farm in Come 9 per cent. For the first time in a decade, the government's multi-billion dollar surplus stock of grains began jto shrink. On the debit' side, however, there was an increase of some $1 billion in federal farm spending. This helped swell the government's deficit and furnished free ammunition for administration critics! For eight years before 1961, the Eisenhower administration . had oeen inching, against stiff congres sional resistance, toward reducing the government's influence on farm production and prices. Kennedy reversed this. with policy of "supply management." This includes an array of proposals to control ] output of surplus crops. Congress refuset] last year' to approve a sweeping administration plan designed to make managed- production plans available for a" farm commodities. But • it di agree to temporary/plans granting farmers' higher 2 supports' and direct [payments for trimming grain production in 1961 and 1962. The high costj of the .temporary programs was brie of the .factors behind the-President's decision to nroposel a new package of,"sterner, long-range farm- controls' to Congress-this year.; ! . •j • ' Labor WILLIAM J. EATON The President reversed, the .Eisenhower administration's, hands- off policy toward major labor disputes, and Labor; Secretary Arthur J. Goldberg was credited with a key role in several settlements. Goldberg, one j of the nation's leadingj labor lawyers before he joined the New Frontier cabinet, interceded to end strikes on New York City tugboats, airlines, missile bases and auto assembly lines. ] Kennedy's aim generally was' to contain wage-price increases,} thus avoiding an inflationary' spiral, without imposing controls orj embittering the labor leaders} who backed his nomination for] the Presidency and helped him get elected. . Explaining the concept to the AFL-CIO convention, Goldberg said wages should be held within national productivity gains as a|.general rule. But the union officials took heart when he said there was plenty of room for pay raises under, this concept. ' There was no change in th > administration's opposition to widespread reduction in the 40-hour work week. But Kennedy gat the AFL-CIO's supoort for his new tariff-cutting trade program. The President made it clear that Goldberg would be active in steel industry negotiations and push hard for an early settlement that would remove doubts of a possible mid-year strike. Justice LEON BURNETT Robert F- Kennedy, the President's brother, - took . office under fire from critics who said hi; was too young and too inexperienced to be attorney general. Operating energetically, hu;: very quietly, the younger Kennedy appeared to have lived down of the objections -by the «njd his first year as the nation) law-enforcement officer. The attorney general claimed special progress in two fields—organized crime and civil rights. He said j that passage of a five-point anti-racketeering program of legislation cut down~gamblers' profits which he said were underworld's bankroll for other illicit activities. < In the civil rights field,; Robert Kennedy's most, dramatic action was the dispatch of 600 federal law-enforcement officers to [Montgomery, Ala., to quell riots that erupted over Negro challenges to bus terminal segregation in' the South. I He acted under civil rights laws passed immediately after the Civil War to restore order to. the Alabama city. This move was coupled with appeals to Negroes to halt any "provocative", actions, in the interest of preventing, further violence. Robert Kennedy also, directed a persistent investigation into the many of s top affairs of the Teamsters and its president, James R.

Hoffa himself was re-indicted on mail fraud charges in a Florida real estate promotion scheme after the initial charges were dismissed on a' technicality. ' , The Justice Department filed 15 suits;' to enforce Negro voting fights during the first year of the Kennedy administration. It also reported progress in removing racial barriers in travel and: schools - Natural Resources ELMER W. LAMMI Within a month after taking office, Kennedy delivered a special message on. natural sresourees to Congress. He laid down a program for the development of water, power, forest, land, sea and outdoor recreational resources! The bulk of responsibility for the program fell to Interior Secretary Stewart L. Udall, a young and energetic Arizonan whom Kennedy plucked from the House for his cabinet. But Kennedy's natural resources program has made progress,, even though unspectacular so far. While the administration has stepped up expenditures on resources, much of the early pro-' gram has consisted of planning, recommendations and reports by a proliferation of committees, commissions and special task forces. . ' However, construction of dams and flood control projects was speeded up in line with Kennedy's declaration that he would reverse the "no new starts" program of the Eisenhower administration. A solid accomplishment was the stepping up of saline water research. Additional funds for the program were pried out of Congress after a Senate select committee on national water resources reported that the nation may face a water shortage by 1980.
