Kennedy Gives Support
To Plane Investigation
WASHINGTON. ()-President John F. Kennedy said yesterday
he thought the Senate investigation of the TFX warplane contract
award was "a good thing" that would prove Secretary of Defense
Robert S. McNamara's judgment was right.
The President strongly supported Secretary McNamara's decision
to award the TFX contract to General Dynamics Corp., rather than
Boeing Co. The Senate hearings have been directed at the belief in
To Halt Reds
For More Pullouts
WASHINGTON OP) - President
John F. Kennedy estimated yester-
day that Russia has "withdrawn
approximately 3000 troops" from
Cuba in recent weeks. He said he
hopes the Soviets will pull out
Kennedy also underscored at a
news conference a seven-nation
pledge at this week's conference in
Costa Rica to take measures "to
halt the flow of agents, money,
arms and propaganda from Cuba
to Central America."
In the domestic field, the Presi-
dent said he foresees no recession
in 1963 and that "we plan to get
the tax cut" he has proposed to
NEW YORK (.P)-Striking union
printers agreed yesterday to re-
consider a City Hall formula for
ending New York's 104-day news-
A new vote on once-rejected set-
tlement terms was set for Sunday
Strike leader Bertram A. Powers
said the new vote was scheduled
at the urgent request of New York
Mayor Robert F. Wagner. Settle-
ment of the printers' strike could
bring the presses of eight closed
daily newspapers back to life next
week, possibly as early as Monday.
Wagner arranged for striking

ITU leaders predicted that this
time the printers would accept a
$12.63 a week, two-year contract
package originally outlined by the
mayor. Last Sunday they voted
down the settlement package by a
64-vote margin, 1,621 to 1557.
Since then the strikers have been
under intense pressure from their
own ITU to reconsider. Printers
across the country have been re-
ported increasingly resentful of
the financial burden placed upon
the ITU by the strike.
A sister union of the printers,
the ITU mailers, reached a tenta-
tive contract agreement early yes-
terday with the publishers. Once
it is ratified, their pickets will be
withdrawn, leaving only the print-
ers and the 375-member striking
AFL-CIO Photoengravers Union.

in an interview, urged President John F. Kennedy to call on Park's

Meanwhile, Undersecretary of
Defense Roswell L. Gilpatric ac-
knowledged yesterday he was one
of the anonymous Pentagon
spokesmen who aroused senators
by their reported comments on an
investigation of the award of the
TFX warplane contract.
Gilpatric said his statements of
last weekend were not intended to
impugn the fairness ofthe Senate
Investigations Subcommittee or to
convey the idea any of its members
deceived him about the scope of
the inquiry. Nor did he concede
that anyone in the Defense De-
partment made such charges.
Sen. Stuart Symington (D-Mo)
said that the temper-arousing in-
quiry was damaging military mor-
ale and he expressed hope it could
be speedily concluded.
The subcommittee chairman,
Sen. John L. McClellan (D-Ark)
replied he intends to continue un-
til all the facts are in and would
call a halt only if the Senate pass-
ed a resolution directing him "to
cease and desist."
Some of the stories publshed
after Gilpatric's briefing said the
anonymous spokesmen claimed the
defense had been entrapped and if
it had known there was to be a
fullscale inquiry the department
would have led off with its top
people instead of allowing the sub-
committee to question military

An embassy spokesman said Ber-

Park "to discuss the situation on

He declined to give details.

The meeting broke up after two
hours with no word of what they.

There was speculation that Park

that it wants Park to keep his
