Page Ten HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS JFK's Back Brings Hot Conference By JAMES MAR LOW Associated Press News AnnlVst WASHINGTON fAP> - Prcsi dent Kennedy's aides have buei. far less prompt with news nbonl his back injury—described as not serious—than President Eisenhower's slaff was with information about his truly serious illnesses. You might get the impression— listening (n Kennedy's press secretary, Pierre Salinger — that news just travels slower is White House circles these days. But one thing is sure. Salinger is either a lot more tardy in learning what happens to his boss—or in telling the press about it—than was ever the case with ames Ha-gerty, who was Eisenhower's press secretary. As a result, Salinger Tuesday Sot into one of the hottest news conferences he's had since taking over as Kennedy's press secretary. According to the White House. Kennedy hurt his back May ifi while in Canada turning a spade- ful of earth during a ceremony. With an aching back he went to Europe for separate talks with British Prime Minister Macmil- Ian, French President de Gaulle, and Soviet Premier Khrushchev. But it wasn't until June 8, two days after Kennedy's return from Europe, that Salinger revealed the President had suffered the injury. By this time Kennedy had been in pain three weeks. .Why had (he news been bottled up that long? Salinger put the responsibility on the President and said Kennedy hadn't even mentioned it to his personal staff. Yet Salinger said Kennedy had been on crutches two days at his Hyannis Port, Mass., home before leaving May 30 for Europe. This- raised an immediate question: Didn't Kennedy's staff know about this? If not. where was the staff? While Salinger insisted the back injury wasn't serious—and wasn't at all related to previous back injuries which required three operations—the long delay in letting it be known gave it importance. When Salinger finally made the news known June 8 he did so by opening his conference with the announcement that "the President will oppear today using crutches." Once Kennedy did appear on crutches, of course, the news of the injury would be out anyway. So Salinger's revleation was only going to beat public knowledge by a few hours anyway. Salinger sr,id Kennedy was under the care of his White House physician. Dr. Janet Travel], who had treated him before for trouble with his back. Salinger on Tuesday disclosed further that a New York specialist, Dr. Preston Wade, had been called down to Florida last weekend to examine Kennedy's back. Salinger said Dr. Wade agreed with Dr. Travell this injury was not related to previous ones. But this disclosure also was tardy. In the first place, it wasn't made until after Kennedy had cancelled a speaking engagement. The White House said the speech was canceled so the President could give his back a chance to rest. Salinger said he himself learned only Tuesday that Dr. Wade had been called to Palm Beach Sunday. In the second place, even Dr. Wade's appearance in the case was handled in a way that was something less than completely direct. Salinger didn't go to Florida with Kennedy. But Andrew T. Hatcher, assistant press secretary, was there. Salinger said Hatcher didn't know Dr. Wade had been called in Sunday. But Hatcher was asked specifically last Friday by The Associated Press whether Dr. Wade was being called in. This question was based on reports that he was. Hatcher said Dr. Wade was not being called in and would not be. Hatcher said Tuesday he did learn Saturday that the New York specialist was being called on. But he never subsequently—until Salinger talked of it—revealed this knowledge, even though he had been asked the direct question about it. Photographers Monday were kept at a distance when Kennedy on crutches, boarded his return plane in Florida, got off it here, and later arrived by helicopter! on the White House grounds. j The President reportedly is! carrying on Hiis usual White House work. In 1955 the press was notified within 13 hours after Eisenhowe| suffered a heart attack. Thereafter newsmen were kept fully and continually informed. The same thing happened in 1957 when Eisenhower suffered an ileitis attack that later required an operation. The press was notified within J2 hours after he was stricken. When Eisenhower had a small stroke ID 1957 the press got the news within 24 hours.

Would Moke Berlin a Free City WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Mike Mansfield, D-Mont., suggested today establishment of an in- :ernationally protected free city of Berlin to avert an East-West nuclear clash. « Mansfield, the Senate's Demo- . cratic leader, said that if the separate ballots are used, Weisen- world must live indefinitely with a . — .,.. ...vt^jb t* i v, tiivn-i ininji y >v ILI1 ci "*o*-* IT «o iv in , nv; | Jell ill I, divided Germany, pence itself re- boxes also must be used. quires that "Berlin—all Berlin—be held in peace and trust until the lay of unificatiqn." He said that the way to peace cannot be found either in Soviet "•remier Khrushchev's proposal to urn only U.S.-supported West Berlin into a free city or in the Vest's insistence on a status quo in Berlin until Germany is reunited. "Berlin is the lever which may ease Europe toward a more durable security or push the Western nations and the Soviet Union into a new vortex of irrationality at whose center lies the graveyard of humanity," Mansfield said in a speech prepared for Senate delivery. Mansfield said that the United States will not be "driven, pushed or barred" from fulfilling its responsibilities for freedom in Berlin. But he warned that the U.S. commitment to Berlin's defense extends from a beginning of firmness "to a final pledge of the lives and fortunes of every man, woman and child in the nation." "We are not engaged at Berlin with the fast draw and wax bullets of television any more than the Russians are engaged in a harmless game of chess," Mansfield said. "In the last analysis we are engaged now, as we have been in Berlin, with the whol e future of the United States." Mansfield made clear that in advancing his suggestion, which is close to a position he has been advocating for years, he was speaking as an individual senator He said that in addition to the Western proposal for a free West Berlin and the Western, : insistence on a status quo, l'''a :: tlwd way may lie in the creation of a free city not in West Berlin alone, but in the creation of a free city which embraces all Berlin—the Communist East no less than the free Western segment of that metropo lis." Unless both sides change their positions, Mansfield concluded "sooner or later, Berlin is likely to become the pivot of a new disaster for mankind."

R. Oliver said today. Oliver said the state would stand firm in its policy, which has resulted in a deadlock involving the federal government and the missile base contractor, Midland Constructors. But Oliver said two Arkansas congressman are trying to arrange a solution. Fie said Sen. J. W. Fulbright and Rep. Wilbur Mills are trying to gel a federal highway bill amended to permit the government to pay for roads damaged in military construction. The law now allows payment for roads damaged in military maneuvers, he said. .Oliver said he replied to a letter from Midland asking clarification of highway policy on weight limits that no permits will be allowed until the repair question is settled. Arkansas' maximum truck load is 56,000 pounds, but special permits arc issued for loads up to HO.OOO pounds. Steel for the missile launching sites around Little Rock Air Force base weights GO tons or more—and Oliver said one load was weighed at 151,900 pounds. Army Engineers say there is.no way to get the steel beams to the 18 missile sites except by truck and the loads cannot be divided to reach the 90,000-pound limit. The Highway Department has put a 30,000-pound load limit and a 35-mile-pcr-hour speed limit on highways leading to the missile sites. It acted after a meeting with federal officials in Washington failed to arrive at a solution. The state bad asked the federal government to pay for repairs, estimated at $2 to $3 million by the time the missile work is finished.
