These are some highlights from the News Journal on February 27, 1961:

• ‘Ike Chills Claim By GOP Senator’

“WASHINGTON (AP) — Former President Dwight D. Eisenhower Sunday night disavowed as inaccurate and regrettable a fellow Republican’s statement that Eisenhower is critical of the direction President Kennedy’s administration is taking.”

After recently speaking with Eisenhower, Sen. Karl Mundt (R-SD), said of Ike, “‘He is critical of the tendencies thus far evidenced by the JFK administration — too much left of center; too partisan; too slanted toward programs supported by union bosses’.”

Eisenhower retorted , “Sen. Mundt’s statement as reported to me Sunday evening does not accurately describe either my views on public affairs or my personal plans, and I very much regret its issuance. The senator evidently intended to repeat in detail our private and purely social conversation, but his recollection of the many subjects mentioned and his interpretations differ markedly from my own.’”
