THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS Harvard Library For The Kennedy Papers :,,„ CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP3J8 The assassination of President l.'John F. Kennedy will hasten % construction of the only mcmori- -=-al he is known to have planned for himself, a monument la_ r beled his dearest wish. ;,'. The project is a library to , • house his papers and effects on the Harvard University campus • ; where Kennedy was n student n • the late 1930's. He selected the site for the library several -months ago. *"" Krmedy could not foresee the irony in the site selection. '•"•.A building a few hundred yards away bears the title '"New England Book Deposit Library." A harsh reminder of 'the Texas School Book Depository in Dallas where the assassin fired the fatal shots.

Pusey outlined details last week for construction of the 56- million library. They invited people everywhere to contribute toward its construction "as a tangible expression of love and respect." Harvard donated more than two acres of land for the building on the site Kennedy inspected Oct. 19. He was assassinated Nov. 22. Pusey said Harvard would not built on land close to the library. Nothing will detract from it," he said. "We want it to be a fitting memorial to a great president." Atty. Gen. Robert V.

The attorney general said his: brother "has been deprived of the personal enjoyment of such! a library, but its speedy ron -j Nlniclion would be his dearest i wish. | "The thousands of iiis follow citi/rns who have been eagerly ( seeking n way of honoring lus memory may find this memorial library a most appropriate way of carrying out their wishes.'' The proximity of other schools, such as Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Boston University, was among the reasons Kennedy approved the He wanted the library to be accessible to all the schools, but not too far removed from the Harvard library, which boasts the largest college book collection in the world.

Knuckles tapped quickly on the rear entrace, sunset. Far out over the Gulf a black mass of clouds hung low, soundless lightning flick ering in the depths of their con volutions. For Blake it had been another long day of precariousness. Minute by minute he had expected one of Paul Shcllam's deputies to appear and take over the Hay ward file. It hadn't happened; the file was still in Blake's vault. He was still moving about, dulled with fatigue but too keyed up to rest, when Todd came in. Todd was no longer the easy-mannered actor. Shel- lam's visit yesterday afternoon had aroused a rankling anxiety in him and it was still evident in his face. "Don't let It get you, kid." Blake answered that with a rueful twist of his lips. Todd went into the west wing, found that Ruth wasn't there and immediately came back. His frown deepened as he faced Blake again. and without further ceremony Jean hurried in. She stopped facing Blake, short of breath, her eyes excited. • • * "I've thing something we should have realized all along. I'm sure it's im portant." He let her go on. "It's about the weapon . . . the ice pick. Why an ice pick instead of a gun or some sort of club — or even no weapon at all?" "No weapon?" "Don't you see? Val had a violent temper, it's true, but the only way it showed itself was in words — the way she screeched. Physically she was small, very slender — you might even say fragile.

"But surely your father . . . in his position ... can bring pressure to bear." "The judge will bend over backward to avoid that." "Yes, 1 suppose he will. Oh, Blake, a fine young man like you—no jury would ever convict you. Todd drew up a chair. "Tessa —" Todd's eyes were fixed on her. "I told you and Win how it happened to Val, out there on her boat. I said I stayed in the cabin while Val was on deck. I said somebody came aboard, or was already on board, and attacked her, and I didn't hear a sound.

Directory Lists People Who Hire The Actors Ar By BOB THOMAS Movle.-Televtsion Writer HOLLYWOOD (API —Names, faces and phone unnibeis — that's the stuff of which one of the world's unusual publications is made. The fflth edition of the Academy Players Directory is on Its way to the printers and will be received In February by a small but important list of subscribers. They are the producers and directors who hire the actors for Hollywood's movies and television shows. The cost: $.'50 [x>r issue. Movie makers as far away as England, Italy and Egypt subscribe to the thrice-yearly publication. The director features the name, photograph and agent of more than 5.000 actors and actresses. They include most of Hollywood's recognizable faces: William Holden, Shirley Machine and Gregory Peck were listed in a recent issue although Marlon Brando, Doris Day and Paul Newman were not. The hefty publication, divided into two volumes by sex, also contains hundreds of faces that are not recognizable. But for SX an issue or $18 a year, any actor can buy himself a showcase and a dream that a producer will some day pick him out of the pages to be a star. Executive Director Margaret Ilerrick said the directory returns little or no income, being one of ht eacademy's services to the film industry. "It was started back in 1937, when a number of private agencies were putting out casting directories," Mrs. Ilerrick said. "Acini's were sold small or full- l>age ads, according to how much they were willing to pay. "he number of directories was, arc the producers. "Darryl Ze.nuck was reported to have said, 'I'd pay $1,000 for a single, comprehensive casting directory.' That's when the academy decided to start one in which the-e would be n standard si/e and payment for the nd of each actor." f'nlil recently the directory was furnished without charge In the studioes. But since they no longer contribute directly to the academy's support, they now charging for it. Some 1,100 confusing both to the actors and copies are printed.

But when Johnson succeeded Kennedy he had less than 14 months left out of his predecessor's four-year term. And that's the end for him, unless like Truman he gets elected on his own. He will almost certainly seek sion operations of President and Mrs. Johnson. This is getting rough. Kennedy sought to preserve a political tranquility, even when he was getting nowhere with Congress.

It will probably be to his [advantage to keep the Kennedy I Cabinet. Replacements would need breaking in on the job. This doesn't mean Jolinson will simply rock along in the Kennedy boat. He'll make changes, although maybe not at the very top. He's too restless not to. But highly respected men like Secretary of Defense Robert S. McN'amara and Secretary of State Dean Rusk seem sure to stay. Johnson who has hi* own i strong opinions about people and tbe way to get things done, had and used the opportunity to size up Kennedy appointments, tactics and programs abroad and at home. He said he backs the programs. But he will probably try i lo improve them and make changes in personnel below the ! very top level. He has to make ' his owl) record to run on in 196-1. i So he has to be a man in a ' hurry. | Some of his observations as 'vice president may be turning into action now. The administration announced j Thursday plans to close or re- iduce about 26 military bases in 11 states to economize, with with thousands out of jobs. An guished cries came from some Congress members whose states will be affected. But Congress has also said it wants some evidence of economy from the President if he hopes to get the tax cut bill through McN'amara had been working on the elimination of bases under Kennedy. It isn't clear whether Kenne dy, had lie lived, would have gone through with this, or whether the tough decision was made by Johnson.
