Folder Description:
This folder contains material collected by the office of President John F. Kennedy's secretary, Evelyn Lincoln, concerning the President's News Conference of April 11, 1962 (News Conference 30). The President began the press conference by criticizing the simultaneous increase of steel prices by United States Steel and other major steel producers shortly after the Steelworkers Union had agreed to negotiate non-inflationary contracts. He then briefly announced that following a review of military strength the decision had been reached to release National Guardsmen called to involuntary active service, and that he had created a Board of Inquiry to review the issues involved in a labor dispute in the West Coast maritime industry. Following the announcements the President answered questions from the press on a variety of topics including the steel price increase and the possibility of wage-price controls in the steel industry. Background materials in this folder include department and agency reports for the President on foreign affairs and national security. The official White House transcript of the press conference and the stenotype transcript of the press conference are also included.
