The 44-year-old Chlif Executive said rather
forcefully to his informative lieutenant. "Can't you

This might well be the operating slogan of the
President today as he started his second year In
th White House. He told the notion in a classic
Inaugural address last Jan. JO that even In the shad
ow of a war-worried world, "I do not believe that
any of us would exchange places with any other
people or any other generation."
A year later, the President still feels the same
way. But he is more convinced than he was a year
ago that problems facing America and tha rest of
the free world defy solutions except those conceived
in patience, calmness and quiet determination.
The Chief Executive during the last II months
found his most ambitious plans for domestic im
provement virtually snowed under by constant
crises In world affairs. He realises this will con
tinue. Thus, Kennedy and those closest to him seem
to operate today at a more deliberate, realistic

WASHINGTPN Some remark
able changes have taken place in
John F. Kennedy during his first
year as President. No President
during my experience In Washing
ton has grown up so much.
The surface changes are easy
to diagnose; the less perceptible,
behind the scenes changes are
more Important.
On the surface, Kennedy has
settled down.
When JFK first became Presi
dent he was restless, hated to be
confined, couldn't get used to Se
cret Service guards and the pro
tocol that necessarily ties up a
President, fie was accustomed to
driving his own car to work, could
not get used to going to his office
merely by going downstairs in the
White House.
When he was first elected, Ken
nedy would sometimes grab the
wheel of his car, teu the Secret
Service man to move over, and
race down the highway. He doesn't
do that any more.
His restlessness at first took the
form of examining every room in
the White House. He turned up in
places no President had even seen
before. One secretary in a top.
back room, was so flabbergasted
she almost fainted when JFK
appeared In the doorway. She had
served under two previous Presi
dents, but never saw them.
Still Restless
Kennedy, after a year as Presi
dent, is still active, still restless.
He will drift Into his secretary's
room to dictate, drop In on aides,
shuffle through their papers, ask
them about problems they have
forgotten but he hasn t. Perhaps
no other President certainly not
u recent years has shown such
an amazing faculty for keeping
all sorts of diverse problems in
his head.
Nor has any other President
used the telephone so much. He
calls De Gaulle, Macmillan, Ade
nauer. Other Presidents called on
ly in emergencies. He also phones
friends, minor government offic
ials, sometimes dialing the num
ber himself. Once a girl, author of
CIA Digest, got a phone call:
"This the President, a voice
said. -
"Oh yeah?" she replied and
hung up.
The phone rang again. "This is
the President," JFK insisted. This
time she took the call.
But the most notable change in
Klohn F. Kennedy is that he is no
longer overconfident. When first
elected, he was cocky, sure of
himself, certain that no problem
was too complex for him to solve.
He had won every battle he ever
tackled. The Irish four-leaf clover
seemed securely in his pocket.
But there is also a cautious
streak In John F. Kennedy. It is
not to be confused with coward.
ice, which is not in him. He has
great courage, but it s mixed with
caution. And this caution hit him
a jolt never to be forgotten, with
the Cuban fiasco.
All his advisers. Including the
Joint Chiefs of Staff, told him the
Cuban invasion would succeed. Ei
senhower advisers, from whom he
inherited the plan, told him the
same thing. Only Sen. William
Fulbright of Arkansas disagreed.
It proved a tragic failure.
With this, the luck of the Irish
vanished. Kennedy retreated to a
policy of extreme caution, retreat
ed also from his new advisers, fell
back on his old. His brother was
given the job of reorganizing CIA,
his close friend Ted Sorenson was
told to review European policy, a

Deadlock at Vienna
On top of this came another tra
gedy the deadlock with Khrush
chev at Vienna. Flying home from
Vienna, Kennedy was more de
pressed than at any time in his
life. He talked about the probabil
ity that his children might live
under war. The first thing he did
on arriving home was to get a mil
itary appraisal of the number ot
lives to be lost in an atomic war.
Immediately after Vienna came
the return of his back Injury. Thus

Staff who called on Kennedy at
that time found him cold and
quiet He sat in his rocking chair
asking sharp, incisive questions.
But his demeanor radiated confi
dence even when his own confi
dence was shaken.
Gradually came the long, slow
climb back from the depths of the
Cuban crisis and the Vienna tra
gedy. During this Kennedy has re
gained confidence in himself and
Europe has regained confidence
in him.
The old cocky Kennedy is gone
now. The "luck of the Irish" has
been relegated to the background,
The President still relies on his re
markable memory, still reads the
papers with amazing rapidity,
still used the telephones. But he
has gone back to his old advisers,
realizes that his Secretary of
State Dean Rusk, knows more
than Dick Goodwin, and that he
has some able, loyal men in his
He still has not learned what
Truman and Roosevelt learned,
that it's next to impossible to get
along with Congress, and that soft
soaping will get him nowhere. He
also has a remarkable faculty for
not nursing grudges. He can meet
an old political opponent, Speaker
John McCormack, just as if they
had been bosom pals for years.
The President has become
tougher In the past year, steeled
in the most difficult school of the
cold war and congressional foren
sics. And he has become a vastly
better President. But if there's one
thing he still must learn, it's that
high Gallup polls don't solve prob
lems nor can you solve them by
being too nice.
By Stewart Hensley
The new President scored no spectacular vic
tories in foreign policy during his first year in
office. But th overall record Is on of encouraging
gains on a number of fronts.
The consensus her and In Allied quarters Is
that after an Initial period of floundering encom
passing th Cuban fiasco he began a workmanlike
job of trying to rally the non-Communist world to
greater efforts on a number of critical Issues.
His prompt action to build up American mili
tary might in the face of renewed Soviet demands
on Berlin marked the point at which ho demon
strated his ability to take th leadership of the
Western alliance. And his steady efforts to maintain
Allied unity have denied the Kremlin any signifi
cant gains on that critical front.
The increased sense of unity among th West
am powers is. In Kennedy's opinion, on of th
maor accomplishments of the past 12 months.
He also points with pride to the Initial steps
taken under his Allience for Progress, the massive
new U.S. aid program for Latin America. But final
judgment will have to be withheld on this for a
long time. So far there has been a disappointing
reluctance among most of the Latin American coun
tries to undertake the reforms necessary to make
the program really effective.
Critics claim Kennedy's ringing promises to
defend the southeast Asian kingdom of Laos against
communism were misleading in light of the sub
sequent decision to agio on a coalition govern
ment with the Reds there. But in neighboring
South Viet Nam his initiative in bolstering the em
battled government of President Ngo Dinh Diem
bids fair to stem the Communist tide at that point.

agreement that h has more support among the
voters than he had at th time of the narrow I960

Republicans are not convinced, however, that

some of his programs. Th GOP response may

NEW YORK (UPI) This week
proved to be still another period
of frustration for investors as the
stock market kept intact its
string of 1962 weekly declines.
Friday's firming trend on heav
ier volume did little to heal the
wounds inflicted by four earlier
market declines in winch Dow-
Jones industrials fell through one
important resistance level and
challenged another before re
The overall decline lacked fun

tenor of business news remained
favorable. Most observers figured
that the further price dip mir
rored delayed profit-taking in
many of last year's top perform

ders as prices fell.
Added pressure was then
brought to bear by the slump
through a major support area, a
bearish short interest report for
the month ended Jan. 15 and the
failure of institutional investors to

prices reached the lowest levels
since late Oetooer.
Ignoring Friday's rally which
saw the market running late and
rebounding at the boll, many an

Fly fishing at Mud
Lake gets approval
To the Editor:
The purpose of this letter is to
thank the Oregon State Game
Commission for their recent action
in regard to Mud Lake and other
fly fishing areas in the state. I
have flv fished in Oregon for 30
plus years and have many times
been very critical ot game com
mission policies in regard to fly
fisherman and fly fishing areas. If
their announced policy is any indi
cation of tilings to come. I am
on their team from here on.
I have always believed we have
had a tremendous potential to
draw very desirable tourists to
Oregon if we would develop one
or more of our many lakes into
fly sport fisheries. Lakes such as
Mud Lake, Sparks Lake and Davis
Lake lend themselves naturally to
this. They are all lakes that have
great quantities of natural fly life
and are easily accessible and too
shallow to stand the pressure of
bait and lures.
If this policy does not draw tour
ists because of the spectacular
sport it will afford, at least any
parent who so desires will have a

Your editorial concerning Sena

Yet the Portland papers of the -same

Lowell C. Paget, has declared that
the national committee has singled
out Morse as a special target for

it will probably amount to the
