IDALLAS (P)-President John F.
Kennedy went 3,000 miles out of
his way yesterday to spend 14
minutes trying to cheer up Speak-;
er of the House Sam Rayburn
(D-Tex), seriously ill with cancer.
As the President left the hos-
pital, he told newsmen:
"We had a good conversation. I
was happy to have a good chance
to talk with him. He's sick, of
course, but I was glad I could be
with him. He was in good spirits

Debate on Cabinet
HIN HEUP, Laos (P)-Neutral-
ist Prince Souvanna Phouma, who
campaigned a long time to gain
nomination Sunday as the new
premier of Laos, will have to wait
a bit longer than expected for
King Savang Vathana's blessing.
Premier Prince Boun Oum, the
rightist whom Souvanna is driv-
ing to succeed,touched the brakes
lightly yesterday.
Boun Oum was one of two men
Souvanna commissioned at this
village on the jungle kingdom's
cease-fire line to see the king at
Luang Prabang, the royal capital,
and arrange an audience today
for the premier-designate. The
other man was Souvanna's. half-
brother, Prince Souphanouvong of
the pro-Communist Pathet Lao.
Delays Trip
But it was announced in Vien-
tiane, the administrative capital,
that Boun Oum isn't leaving until
today for Luang Prabang, 140
miles north of that city. No react
son was given for the 24-hour de-
lay. 4
This means Souvanna, who
needs the formality of royal ap-
proval, will not be received by the
king before tomorrow at the ear-
Accompanying Boun Oum when
he does make the trip will be the
military strongman of his re-
gime, Gen. Phoumi Nosavan, who
felled a Souvanna government in
the battle of Vientiane last De-
Leaders Agree
Boun Oum, Souphanouvong and
Souvanna-the leaders respective-
ly of pro-Western, pro-Communist
and neutralist -factions in Laos'
civil war-had agreed here that
Souvanna was the man to head
the coalition proposed to lead the
kingdom to unity and neutrality.
Representatives of the three are
still debating the makeup of a
proposed 16-member, cabinet for
the 60-year-old, Paris-educated
nominee, who has had Communist
bloc backing throughout.

Home Set
LONDON (W'-Foreign Secretary
Lord Home arranged a private din-
ner party for Andrei Gromyko to-
day after learning the Soviet for-
eign minister is planning a one-
day stopover in London.
The meeting almost certainly
will be dominated by talks on the
East-West Berlin crisis, British of-
ficials said yesterday. Another
conference earlier in the day be-
tween the Jwo foreign ministers
and their senior aides was con-
sidered likely.
Gromyko is returning to Mos-
cow after fruitless talks in Wash-
ington with President Kennedy
and Secretary of State Dean
Both the United States and
British governments believe there
are now no acceptable terms on
which East and 'West can go into
talks on the future of Berlin and
Germany. This was spelled out by
a foreign ministry spokesman,
who told reporters: "The position
remains as it was-there is still
no acceptable basis for negotia-
Gromyko in three weeks in the
United States held informal ex-
changes with western officials but
at no time relaxed the Soviet po-
sition on Berlin, informed sources
Not once did he spell out what
Premier. Nikita S. Khrushchev
meant when he said Western
rights in isolated Berlin would be
guaranteed after a Soviet-Com-
munist East German peace trea-
Kennedy is understood to have
told Gromyko emphatically that
Britain, France and the United
States are determined to defend
the freedom of West Berlin.
Gromyko's unusual decision to
stop in London en route home
was conveyed to the British by the
Soviet foreign ministry.

Smith first caught the eye of
former Gov. G. Mennen Williams
in 1957 when, as a Flint attor-

and the man who already was an
outstanding congressman at the
time Kennedy was born.

with the man who has been speak-
er of the House twice as long as
anyone in history.
