    Background: President-elect Jack Kennedy had a busy day Nov 27 on his daughter Caroline's third birthday. Crowds gathered outside his Georgetown, Washington home all day saw his brother Bob arrive (complete with large family) and the Vice President-elect Lyndon B. Johnson.

    Brother Bob (Robert F Kennedy) was the President-elect's campaign manager - a recent Time article says that Bob will probably refuse office but will never be far from his brother during his occupancy of the White House.

    Lyndon B Johnson had just returned from the Parliamentary NATO meeting in Paris by way of London; - was thought to confer with Kennedy on the vital and pressing problem of the appointment of a new Director of the Budget - the man who will have to implement the policies now being set and controlled by Mr. Anderson, recently returned from West Germany and France.
