Just nine days from now Ken- riedy will have been President 2& years. He had no Illusions about the future when he took Jan. 20, 1961. In his inaugural ipeech j}, R t day he said American problems would "not be finished in the first 1,000 days" or In the life of his administration. He was talking mainly about the problems ahead with communism. Nowhere In that Inaugural did he mention the racial problem which would burst over him, If he foresaw It. It had been gathering force ever since May 17, 1954, the day the StipfgWe it*6liri Said iiwetfual treatment of Negroes Is unconstitutional. tws jrtitfigs happened to Negtae* between the time the court spoke and Kennedy took office: They gained eonUdenee in demanding the treatment they're entitled to and they realised it would be a long time in comlftg unless they did demand it. they began demanding! In Sit ins, freedom rides, picketing, entry to previously all-White schools, and mass demonstrations. They're Increasing the pressure. They know no matter how much they win, an end to dlririmina tion in all Its forms )s still a dream. Kennedy's first crisis was a disaster; The invasion of Cuba by Cuban retoeTi with his backing on Apttt 1?. 1M. It was badly planned, even weakly plannM While thi World watched, ftdel Ca*te aittftahed it. Kennedy did nothing. It was a lesswi to him—and he learned It^to be more careful about involving American prestige and safety Ifl a new adventure. The second crisis came Aug. IS, 1961. Premier Khrushchev walled in East Berlin to keep East Germans from escaping to the West. Kennedy did little more than denounce the wall and the spirit behind it. There wasn't much more he could do Without risking war with Russia, He made oiit better with all the crises that followed. The next was with the American steel Industry April 16, It raised prices, contrary to Kennedy's wishes and understanding, after a new contract in which steelworkers got some benefits but ho pay raise. Kennedy denounced the steel- makers. It Was the power of the presidency against the steel industry. The industry quaked and quit and dropped the price boost. Luckily for Kennedy, all his crisis didn't happen at once. The fourth one arrived Sept. 30, 1962. Twit of Will It was a test of wills with Ross Battiett, governor of Mississippi. The will of a governor against the will of the court and the Presidency is a poor, match. Barnelt tried to defy a U.S. court order to admit James Meredith, a Negro, into the University of Mississippi Keffitedy Countered with U.S marshals and federal troops. Two men wei-e Mllffd in a Hot against the marshals. But Meredith got in. This was followed by Kennedy's most halr-faisihg crisis, Oct. 22. 1962. After watching Kennedy do nothing in the Cuban and Berlin wall episodes, Khrushchev may have figured him for a soft touch. He Slipped missiles into Cuba. It might have meant war but Kennedy called his hahd and said: Out. Khrushchev waddled off with his missiles. Alabama's Gov. George C. Wallace, learning nothing from Barnett's debacle, tried his own test of wills and Invoked Kennedy's sixth crisis on June 11, 1963. He defied a U.S. ««tft ftftfc* to admit two Negrttes t« thl University of Alabama. Kennedy federalized Alabama's National Guatds- men and marched them up to Wallace. Wallace wilted. The Negroes got in. Kennedy met his seventh and latest crisis Wednesday, just a few hours before the railroad unions were to begin a nationwide strike. The railroads, upheld by a presidential commission, a presidential board and the Supreme Court, eventually were gointf to lay off about 40,000 railroad fire- en and about 25,000 other rail workers. The lay-offs were scheduled to start today. The unions said they'd strike at once. Kennedy got both sides to agree to do nothing until at least July 29. Chicago Group Plans 920-Foot Tourist Tower -\ \ EASTGATE PLAZA - EAST ALTON ACROSS FROM LEWIS AND CLARK MOTOR LODGE AND RESTAURANT -OPEN DAILY 10 AM. TO 9 P.M. "S ALWAYS FIRST QUALITY CHICAGO (AP) — Construction of a 920-foot tourist attraction observation tower, one of the highest such structures in the world, was announced Wednesday night by developers. Lloyd Garrett, a Chicago stock broker and one of the co developers of the monument-type structure, said the cost of the tower is estimated at $12 million and "could be higher depending on decor." A site has not been selected, Garrett said, although several are under consideration. He said the announcement was two to three weeks premature, but was made because of a leak to a Chicago newspaper. Garrett said television and radio antennae at the top of the tower could make it the world's tallest structure. The Eiffel Tower in Paris is 98<! leet tall. Called Chicago Sky Tower, the attraction would contain four observation levels. Two main res- taurants and a l,8(XMs*tH<5lty ater-in-the-rouhd would,, be just below the to? level. Garrett said his cb-devfltoper IB John Buckley of Chicago. Tho group building the structure will be Chicago Sky Tower Corp., headed by Richard Dooley of CHI' cago, a former vice president Of Admiral Corp. The lower's mass will be at the top, Garrett said, as opposed to a straight or tapered construe- tion. Chicago Sky Tower would rue from a base of 150 feet in diameter, tapering to a SMoot stem ftt 150 feet above the ground. The 51; foot stem svould continue to the first series of observation levels at about 700 feet up. There the diameter would be 110 feet. Then the 51-foot core continues for 75 feet to the lower levels of the top, where the diameter would be 200-feet. for a limited time: To wncraft Pima Prince underwear regularly 3 for 2.95 goes on sale 44 J&x*r for Cushioned insoles in women's cotton army duck.
