WASHINGTON (AP) — The atmosphere in Washington today is like that breathless moment in a theater when the curtain becins to rise on a great new drama. People do not know exactly what to expect, but they expect something, something new and very different. Dunne his presidential campaign. John F. Kennedy promised t<j "got thin.cs moving." Whether the movement will be forward, sideways or a roller coaster of tips and downs, remains to be seen. Nevertheless, a sense of excitement, of some kind of moving already tingles in the capital. It is quite unlike the atmosphere in January, 1953, on the eve of Dwight D. Eisenhower's inauguration. ! There appears to be. for example, little or no hangover of campaign bitterness. The Republicans. > noting Kennedy's razor-thin mar!gin of victory, are chagrined but by no means downhearted. Some ; of them, while taking a wait-and- see position, grudjiincly concede that Kennedy seems to be off to a good start. The "transfer of power" period i seems to have gone off unusually' well : In 1952. the transition between ! Eisenhower and' Harry S. Truman | was not a happy one. But when he was questioned about the Kennedy transition oper- ation at his news conference Wednesday, Eisenhower sn'.d: "I think it is going splendidly, splendidly. As a mutter of fart, there are no complaints on our part." Traditionally, an incoming president 1'iijoys a honeymoon with Congress, a period when the legislators are disposed to be as generous with him as possible. Sooner or later, of course, it ends. Eight years ago at this time, the Washington \\ was. "When does the honeymoon begin?" Kennedy's nominations for hi> Oihinet and other top offices have had smooth sailing so far. But in 195'!, one of Kisenhnwor's key nominations—Charles E. \Vil- •;son to be secretary of defense— was heading for a collision with i the Senate Armed Forces (Vm- jmittce before a;i agreement was 'reached. It pivoted on the question of Wilson's stock holdings in General Motors ;ir.d whether he woulii dispose of them. Kennedy has some advantages that Eisenhower did not enjoy.

Model 'Farmhouse' A JLJL re-Opener for Modern Convenience ly FRANKLIN JOHNSON Central Press Association Correspondent WASHINGTON—What la your Weft of tfie traditional farmhouse ? If it is anything rustic, quaint, out-of-the-ordinary, or tht least bit "flicJr" In character, better take another look. Tht -model" farm home developed by architects and engineers ot the V, S. Department ot Agriculture reveals lines that art M smart as any in town or suburbia, and th« plan is, If anything, a shade more practical than tkat ot tht city dweller. It has a carport, an outdoor lounging and cooking terrace, an ultra-modern kitchen that ii the core of the entire layout, and it la in the $15,000-$18,000 range, although costs will rmry somewhat throughout the country. The exterior is brick veneer and carriea a suggestion Qt what Is described by its designers as "traditional."

Tet in a sense this is the last half of the Twentieth Century's counterpart of the simple home that Tom Lincoln never quite got finished for his family, including young Abe, In Kentucky; the simple sod dwelling of pioneer North Dakota, and stark houses that became all too populated by ghosts when the dust bowl drove out their inhabitants in the Thirties. However, perts also farm housing ex- point out that George Washington's Mount Vernon, Thomas Jefferson's Monticello and Andrew Jackson's home also were "farmhouses," so that when you say •traditional" about rural dwellings, you also t&Uc of standards that can be "some punkins"!

There the parallel ends, however, because the new-style farmhouse, while it lacks both basement and traditional type foundation, is of the ultra-modern slab-on-grade floor construction, with both radiant and perimeter types of heating which assure warm floors. What is different, if anything, about a farmhouse? Well, for one thing, say TJ.B.D.A. experts, the fanner thinks of his home as part of his farm "plant," unlike the city "feller" who regards it sometimes as just a "pad" or a place entirely 'iQCF mm Quloon, "Tw^et Dreams" Newt DECK V** DRIVE-IN) RJStW 1HKU W W ¥W SATURDAY • 2 Action Hits 2 • XO. 1 .

Because the agrarian population of the United States never had a "peasant class," housing in rural areas always has been relatively good, say agricultural economists, but never was It so good In concept as today. City and suburban dwellers, take notice! Farmers being "handymen" by proud tradition, they have the means and fiklll for the best house maintenance conceivable. Now that they are becoming "home conscious," It is a good bet that the "farmhouse" can offer potentialities for "a heap of living." A few years ago a hit stage play on Broadway had a heroine farm wife who watched wistfully while her husband built one new barn after another, but never a new house that ah* yearned for. Such Is not the lot of the farm wife today! She is living on "Cloud Ninr'" Ground Crews' Health Inroortant To Space Pilots SAN ANTONIO CAP) — The ground C rews need to be as healthy as the pilots in the space age, the top medical officer in the Strategic Air Command of the Air Force believes. Ballistic missile sites often are in sparsely-populated areas where medical attention may be hard to obtain, and missile units have so few men that they can be seriously hampered by loss of personnel due to illness or injury, Brig. Gen. Theodore C, Bedwell Jr. explained. Bedwell, SAC surgeon, ad- j dressr-d more than 300 scientists and technicians attending a series of lectures on space medicine at the school for aviation medicine today. Bedwell said the Air Force con- sid«»rcd attempting to provide a medic.-il unit for every missile unit. l>ut decided against it because "manpower costs, medical training retirements and the lack of evidence to support the requirement for such service indicates that doubtful benefits would bo received from such *n idealistic operation." Personnel assigned to missile units are given more first nirf training than the average airman receives. Bed'.vell said, to enable injured or i!! personnel to have proper care pending arrival of medical personnel or an ambulance to carry the patient to B hospital. The emphasis, however, must be on selecting the type of man least likely to become ill or to be injured for missile units, the general said. This, he said, will help keep hiuh levels of efficiency and skill in the units as we',! as keeping tho personnel healthy. ISerfwell said analysis of "a large nurnbei of missile failures iitvl accidents reported hy th*headquarters of the Air Research and Development Command ha? indicated that the vast prepond^r .•r.<-<: ;ir ( ini.-eribi/i to human failure or human error."
