His biggest setbacks have been in foreign affairs. There, where his experience is least, he's still an unknown quantity. 'The domestic program Kennedy asked Congress to approve is pretty much middle-of-the-road. It's the kind of program Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson might have offered if he had won the presidency. He's a middle- roader, too. Johnson, when he was the Senate's Democratic - leader, was a superb manager, which also means compromiser, in getting action on legislation' he wanted. In his 14 years in Congress Kennedy learned the ropes, too. The result: Kennedy's aides, helped by his personal prodding, have worked hard on the legislators to bless his programs, although this necessary but behind- the-scenes kind of day-to-day chore doesn't make headlines. Before Congress goes home this summer Kennedy may have suffered complete defeat on some British Scientists Presumed Drowned TROMSOE, Norway (AP)—Five members of a British scientific expedition are presumed to have drowned when their small plastic boat capsized 200 yards off the bleak arctic island of Jan Mayen. The sole survivor of the six-man party, Dr. Frank John Fitch of London University, managed to swim ashore Monday and eight hours later staggered into a scientific station en the island, suffering from severe exhaustion arid exposure.

In foreign affairs—where he has not shown the same kind of surefootedness he has in domestic matters — he cannot take credit for a single outstanding action. Because of his performance in his biggest foreign moves so far —Cuba and Laos—former Vice president Richard M. cracked "timid" at him. Nixon His judgment was bad in approving the half-baked, and therefore disastrous, Cuban invasion. And, while, he talked sturdily : about stopping the Communist , advance in Laos, his follow:. through was the essence of mild; ness. Other tests, some unimagined : now, lie ahead. But the most im, mediate one, and perhaps the biggest, is a showdown with Premier ^Khrushchev over Berlin. At the ' moment he seems firm on this, •but pretty quiet. Circuit Court of Appeals.
