Editorials — Hail To The New Chief! President John F. Kennedy will never ag-ain enioy the admiration and popularity that followed him to the inauguration platform. For at that moment, when he took the oath of office precisely at noon, the burdens of the world's most cruel job passed into his hands. And with the job came responsibilities that directly connect the President of the United States with every individual in America and even* person in authority throughout the world who has ties with America in one way or another. No matter what is done by the government during the next four years. President Kennedy will either get credit or be blamed by the people who put him in office. A president can not hide behind the power and dignity of his position. He must answer to the people for his deeds and those of others associated with aim. President Kennedy's first official act will not be to the Iikmg of some people, no matter how insignificant H is. From now on, he will live in full public *lare his every move subject to the closest scrutiny.* ' ,, P res ^ e nfs two most supreme moments are those that immediately follow his'election and inauguration. He js the hero on both occasions because = he nas not had time to take any kind of action affectin^ those who acclaim him. But once the mantle of power The president's political enemies are most watchful ol all the people. Vanquished foes in a sometimes bitter political battle do not forget quickly or easilv Sometimes they never forgive, for to them the political game is a winner - take - all affair, with no quarter assed and none given. The eyes of the world are on President Kennedy. His friends and political allies are watching to see whether they might have overestimated him. His po- miean enemies are watching and recording every move, and the enemies of freedom are searching for weakness and indecision. God-fearing people everywhere are praying that the new- president will have the benefit of divine guidance in hu great undertakings, that he will search out righteous ways in exercising the leadership of the world's greatest nation. We know the nation's youngest president is well aware of all this and more. He has a mark of greatness and we believe he will translate it into reality in his new role. President Kennedy does not come to the White House to satisfy personal greed for wealth and power. He had both as a private citizen. He does not come with an axe to grind because he is broadminded enough to respect the rights and opinions of those who oppose him. He comes as a man dedicated to a challenging task, determined to tackle the problems that beset America and the world with all the vigor and strength at his command. We wish Jack Kennedy godspeed, and we hope and pray that he can meet and conquer this, the greatest of all challenges. H« can not do it alone, and he knows it. He wants and needs the hein of every American. More than that, he needs God's help. Here's How _ How will you have your meals today, in strawberry ice cream sodas, orange juice or split pea soup 9 One of the most comprehensive dietary items ever to hit the grocer's shelf— the 900-calorie diet— can be purchased in all these forms and many more. In the 15 months since the introduction of the dietary supplements, the demand for these products has grown to support 100 different brands ringing up sales last year estimated as passing the $100 million mark annually at about the same speed as a rocket leaving Cape Canaveral. Where it will end no one, including the manufacturers, ventures to predict. Perhaps it will not end, merely slow its meteoric rise at some future date. In the incredibly short period of its existence, the beverage meal has been extended to every corner of the country. It is sold by grocers, druggists and variety stores; it is brought to the home by dairy product route men. Persons of ail ages are participating in the phenomenon (fad, some call it), and this is just one of the effects worrying national and state medical associations. Doctors seem to have been taken aback by the suddenness of this latest and most successful attempt to make it easier for the 20 million Americans who are at least 10 per cent overweight to take off some of the excess poundage. Most criticism is that any diet, regardless of vitamin and mineral content, which is such a radical departure from conventional foods can be dangerous if taken by people who exercise poor judgment Perhaps in time meals-in-a-glass will be extended to two courses, with a carrot on the side, for example.

The headaches run deep and could bc permanent. Headache No. 1 came when th? new secretary of defense vetoed veteran labor leader Joe Keenan as assistant secretary' of defense in charge of manpower. This is still causing labor resentment Furthermore, the Defense' Department is sure to have labor tro--fi- les, such as the strike which tied up missile base construction. and McNamara will be wishing he had a man like Keenan to straighten things out. Headadir- No. 2 camr whrn McNamara veto"fl Franklin D. Ri*w- veil Jr., for ^ff'rotary o:' ib<> IMVV and act-opted John "B. Connally Texas oil attorney, instead. The Roosevelt appointment as secretary of the navy was to have been a cornerstone in Kennedy's political strategy. FDR Jr.. had fought hard for him, Ions; before the bandwagon rush developed. His appointment would have followed an old tradition, set by Teddy Roosevelt, of purtins; a Roosevelt in the Navy Department. Finally, the Navy post was to be a buildup for FDR to run for governor of New York acainst Nelson Rockefeller. However, JFK had given McNamara the richt to veto his assistants in the Defense Department and McNamara turned thumbs down. Since then. Kennedy has frequently been up in New York conferrir.e with Dr-mocratic leaders rc-pardinz the tx-st man to re- phrr- FDR Jr.. as Democratic candidate a^ain;--; Rockefeller. Kennedy rc'Eard?; Rockefeller as the P.f-—iblican candidate for presi- i iry " -or Nixon, and he *ants a potent, popular Demo' 3 •-. 10 pni'sh Nelson off in his gubernatorial re - election race in 1962. FDR Jr.. with a Navy buildup, would have been ideal. But McNamara said no. And thpre seems to be no one in th« rjnnin-_'. This has causf-d Kennedy advisers to do a little speculating as to why the new secretarv of defense should veto Roosevelt for the Navy, yet take an oilman who is in exactly the sam* position as oilman Ed Pauley. rrjc-rt- cd by the Senate as under secre- tary of the navy under Truman. Connally could have been appointed to various other jobs, such as secretary of the army — which long remained open —- and there would have wen no argument. He's an able, intelligent attorney. But V:c» President Johnson very much \vanic-d his former assistant and campaign manager to he secretary of the navy. Tliis hasn't hurt relations between ftp President and Vice Pres- ider.'. But ;t has increased the suspicion with which Kennedy advisers view tj;,:. jvowerful fe.xan whom they uk-d to veto for VP even at Los Angeles. They note that McNamara is takinc advice ,'rnrn tho New York attorneys /or tho Ford Motor Co headed hv E d d i o \Vrisl. close friend and counsel to Johnson. Weisl'f law partner. Cyrus R_ Van'.v, will now hecome McNamara 's counsel in the Defense Department. They wonder if it wasn't one of these New York advisers who put the kibosh on Franklin Roosevelt Jr., to bo secretary of the Navy. If so, he did a great favor to Gov. Nelson Rockefeller, also made an opening for John- son's campaign manager, John Connally. Note —- Senators are impressed wpth the sincere manner in which McNamara went out of his way to respect the confiici-of-in- terest laws by setting up a sp-"c- ?al trust fund — even if Senator Byrd of Virginia isn't. VICE PRESIDENT Johnson is famous on capitol hill for phoning publishers, editors, and TV executives to try to kill or modify news stories he doesn't like. One story he was not able to kill was published in Fortune Maea/ine last month regarding three of Johnson's Texas supporter's, plus his brother Sam, and the amazing Navy contract awarded thorn, practical!;,- without competitive bidding. J o h n s o n' s former assistant, John Connally. when he becomes secretary of "the navy, will administer this contract. It was awarded the Transport Co. of Texas in which his latr boss. Sid Richardson, was third largest stockholder, at a time v/hen Connally was attorney for Richardson. Try and Stop Me By BENNETT CERF VA HIT ME// BERRA, conducting an impromptu baseball seminar in Toots Shor's old bistro one winter night suddenly declared there were seven different ways a. batter could get to first base without making a hit. Can YOU name them? Here they are: 1. A base on balls. 2. Hit by pitcher. 3. Interference by the catcher. 4. A dropped third strike. 5. Forcing out a preceding runner. 6. Getting on via an error. 7. Becoming a pinch runner. Thinker Berra also pointed out one way a pitcher could yield six successive base hits without putting a single man on base: play a girls' team. * * • Herb Stein has spotted a Chinese restaurant out Hollywood way that's BO swanky the cookie messages are printed in French.

WASHINGTON - Not ail of my recent remarks to the National Press Women were offered facetiously or ina jesting tone. "First I would urge my liberal friends not to take the results of the 1960 elections or themselves or their philosophy too seriously. The future of the Republic is at stake. "The questions involved in national survival will not be solved by slogans or name calling. The urgencies of this hour require that mature Americans put aside the petty, adolesence of partisanship and engage in a serious reflection and discussion of man's relationship to go%'emment, and fjNJVernniciit'S itriauviisiup iu man in this Republic. "For three decades, you liberals have failed to produce a new idea in government. Your only answer to our problems has been, and is now, to first pigeonhole our people i-'ito groups, to regulate by edict, and to spend the people's money. "The apostle of the liberal cause have claimed for themselves the sole proprietorship of an interest in the miseries and misfortunes and the triumphs and successes of mankind. Ajid when we, who are conservatives, question your proposed courses of action, you inevitably accuse us of a lack of concern for the welfare of our fellow men. "You liberals have had your say — your policies have prevailed to shape the destiny of this nation rather generally over the past iwrmy-eieht years. You have directed the creation of super government. You have established boards and commissions to redress all wrong. You have taught men to lean on governmental structure for support "I do not question your motives, hut I read an unquiet discontent which prevails across this land, a thoughtful questioning of the direction in which you have led us. "We are strong people — weakness and dependence is not a suitable state for the dependents of the men and women who bought and paid for our constitutional liberties with their treasure and their blood. "By your legislative acts, thro 1 .:;;'* your boards and commissions arid your controlled rulings and regulations, you have earnestly souzht to do more than make justice prevail. You have hopefully tried to reform the nature of man. You have, in my opinion, been deceived by the false notion that governments can make men good, orproduct ive, or considerate, or kind, or charitable, or thrifty. And your leaders who have «een a vision of a better world are bitterly disappointed over the failures so plainly evident "I would suggest that what you have attempted to do was beyond the ability of man to accomplish. For you have attempted to create, by governmental decree, a state where Man might expect not only justice but mercy as well. "itie fallacy of the liberal presumption is that society can be made perfect where man surrenders his liberty to government and then relies on government for his every need andwant. "Tile lesson of America's history in evolution is very plainly just the opposite, that moral government accompanies materia improvement just as long as the climate is liberty. "Wheliberals talk loosely about this country's lost purpose. I suggest they might remember that tme of our Republic's purposes is freedom and that we have re* mained free for nearly two centuries; and that we have must be listed as one of the great achievements of history. "Your well-meaning, well-intentioned" proposals have operated to deny and to limit human personality. If we agree that this war- torn weary would is in need of love, charity and mercy, then I would suggest we must once more recognize that only the individual human personality can respond to God's mercy and reflect to his fellow men meaningful love, effective justice and provide Ihe kind of political government under which the individual citizen can create for himself a more satisfying existence.' 1 How do you stand, sir?
