of Labor Arthur J. Goldberg yes-
terday assured organized labor
critics that President John F. Ken-
nedy's program represents the ad-
ministration's best judgment of
what is obtainable from Congress.
Praise for President Kennedy's
proposals has been tempered by
union leaders at AFL-CIO execu-
tive council meetings here with
criticism that In various respects
they' don't go far enough to revive
the lagging economy.
Goldberg advised his former un-
ion colleagues to get wholeheart-
edly behind President Kennedy's
plans because, he said, they are
based on a realistic appraisal of
what Congress may be expected to
approve. He reminded them some,
business organizations feel the
proposals are too drastic.
Goldberg, former attorney for
many AFL-CIO unions, brought to
the closed council meeting a let-
ter from President Kennedy to
George Meany, AFL-CIO presi-
dent, in which the President said
his program merits support of
all elements in American life.
