Several hours later Mills conferred at the While House with the President. White House Press Secretary Pierre Salinger and congressional sources said the appointment had been arranged several days ago. The White House did not say what Mills and Kennedy discussed. Mills, an administration workhorse in Congress this year, also disclosed that Kennedy backers may accept without a fight Republican efforts to limit a debt ceiling increase to $306 billion rather than the $308 billion the President requested. Treasry Secretary Douglas Dillon, on the other hand, raised the possibility of a special post- election congressional session if the full $308 billion limit is not approved. And after Dillon and other administration policy-makers insisted the Treasury could not operate under the lower debt limit, Democratic leaders agreed to battle on the floor to preserve the administration plan. This shaped up as a close fight, but the leaders felt they had better than an even chance. The Democratic leadership also rejected the talk of a campaign recess, and drew plans to step up their pace in order to push through in regular . session as much of Kennedy's over-all program as possible.

The big jet had just taken off and was in a routine left turn when it rolled over on its back and dove into Jamaica Bay. The FAA said the rudder boost was only a possibility and may never be proven completely because the mechanism containing the key bolt never was found.
