Kennedy Taps MeCone

As Successor to Dulles

Over in November
NEWPORT (A)-President John
F. Kennedy yesterday chose Re-
publican John A. McCone, former
chairman of the Atomic Energy
Commission, as the new director
of the nation's highly secret Cen-
tral Intelligence Agency.
The President called a special
meeting with newsmen to an-
nounce the appointment of the
wealthy west coast businessman
and shipbuilder.
Kennedy introduced McCone
and the man he is succeeding, Al-
len R. Dulles, as two who have
made personal sacrifices to serve
their country.
Service a Privilege
Both said they regarded service
to the nation a privilege.
White House Press Secretary
Pierre Salinger said the final de-
cision to appoint McCone was
made yesterday morning. The two
visitors met for half an hour be-
fore going by boat 'to Quonset
Point Naval Air Station for the
announcement.
McCone is to Join Dulles in the
CIA in about two weeks and is to
take over when Dulles retires in
November.
CIA Criticized
After the doomedCuban inva-
sion attempt last spring,, the CIA
was criticized for its intelligence-
training role but Kennedy did
nothing to make Dulles the scape-
goat.
Kennedy did start intensive sur-
veys of the nation's intelligence
capabilities. The administration
reportedly has studied proposals
that the CIA's functions be split
so that undercover operations are
directed separately from spying
and more public methods of col-
lecting security information.
Kennedy, announcing McCone's
appointment, praised Dulles as a
man who has a record "almost
unique if not unique in the his-
tory of this country."

ly before the Argentine congress.

Communist penetration in border-
ing countries, particularly Para-
guay and Brazil.

front" with leftist elements for
use in political campaigns.

ian and Venezuelan governments.

BULKY WOOL

LOS ANGELES (A-The new
boss of the Central Intelligence
Agency, John A. McCone, is grey
of hair, slight of build, mild of
manner.
In a crowd, he might be mis-
taken for a shoe clerk or a schol-
ar.
Such an appraisal, associates
say, couldn't be more wrong.
Top Executive
They say he's a vigorous top-
flight executive with steel in his
backbone and a quick, wide-rang-
ing mind. His special flair: ana-
lyzing complex problems for fast'
solutions.
McCone is a riveter who be-
came a manufacturer and indus-
trialist, active in a host of enter-
prises.
When he accepted President

John F. Kennedy's call to replace
Allen Dulles as the nation's No. 1
intelligence agent-one of the hot-
test spots in the government-he
knew what he was getting into.
He is no stranger to Washington
intrigue.'
Headed AEC
McCone, a Republican, headed
the Atomic Energy Commission for
three years under former Presi-
dent Dwight D. Eisenhower. Un-
der former President Harry S.
Truman, he was undersecretary of
the Air Force. _
In Los Angeles he is known as
a member of a Conservative group
that is active in promoting civic,
cultural and charitable affairs. He
is an occasional golfing companion
of former President Eisenhower.
