JFK ANSWERS VALENTINE'S DAY QUESTION
President Kennedy sometimes responds to reporters questions at his frequent press conferences with humor. Today he answered a humorous question with an equally humorous answer:
QUESTION: "Mr. President, this being Valentine's Day, sir, do you think it might be a good idea if you would call Senator Strom Thurmond of South Carolina down to the White House for a heart-to-heart talk about--(laughter)--the whole disagreement over the censorship of the military speeches and what he calls your defeatist foreign policy?"
