JFK’s First Year
In White House
Is “Mild”
By James Marlow

gest difference in the first White
House year of .Presidents Ken
nedy and Eisenhower was in the
kind of world inherited.
Eisenhower’s first year had
more day-to-day headaches; Ken
nedy’s a more frightening core of
At home Eisenhower had to
contend with Sen. Joseph Mc
Carthy and, overseas, with the
Korean War. As a result of both
the country was frustrated, tom

That whole year was a badly
troubled one for the new Presi
Kennedy, in his first year, has
had comparatively a mild time
of it at home. The extreme right
wingers were his only McCarthy
like problem. And so far they’ve
been just a petty annoyance.
But overseas, while he had no
Korean War to settle, he had to i
face a situation far more subtly
perilous than Eisenhower " en
When the latter became Presi
dent in 1953 the United States,
with its hydrogen bomb, was still
the most powerful nation. The
Russians made trouble but not
encugh to risk a war.
They didn’t have their first
hydrogen blast until August, 1953.
By ttie time Kennedy moved in
this year, they not only had
hydrogen bombs but the missiles
to deliver them.
Thus the whole American-Rus
sian relationship was different for
Kennedy. War, death and anni
hilation qow had. an immediacy

took vover the White House.
Eisenhbwer even got a% tempor
ary relief from Russian pressure—
with Stalin’s death in March,
1963—when the Kremlin leaders,
became more concerned with
themselves than with the Ameri
can President.
It was the opposite for Ken

Kennedy to Seek
$100 Million lot
U.N.’s Congo Operations
WASHINGTON <m — President
Kennedy will ask Congress for
$100 million to buy United Na
tions bonds to help pay for the
U.N.’s Congo operations.
In announcing this Thursday,
Harlon Cleveland, Assistant Sec
retary of State for International
Organization Affairs, acknow
ledged that he expects the re
quest will stir debate. Same lead
ing legislators have been critical
of the U.N. Congo action.
But it is in the national interest
of the United States to help bail
the U.N. out of it financial woes,
Cleveland said, adding:
“Congressional approval of this
proposal will frustrate the Soviet
attempt to starve ihe United Na

preserve the UjN. for its vital
executive role in international
So the heat from Communism
was limited for Eisenhower. It*
real effort at the time, aside from '
the fighting against the French

in Korea.

than Stalin because of his bombs
and missiles, is poking at Ken

Of the two men Kennedy seems
more the master in his own house.
The outstanding example is in the
conduct of foreign affairs.
Kennedy does the important
talking for his administration on
foreign policy. His Secretary of
State Dean Rusk, acts as his tech
nician. and adviser but says little.
Whiles Eisenhower personally
restrained in foreign affairs, he

For Eisenhower his first year
turned out to be just a compara
