    COMMENT ON THE "SKYBOLT" ISSUE CAME FROM THE WHITE HOUSE TODAY (MONDAY) WHEN PRESIDENT KENNEDY GAVE A TELEVISION INTERVIEW, BROADCAST FROM NEW YORK.

    PRESIDENT KENNEDY SAID THAT "SKYBOLT" WOULD COST ABOUT 2,500 MILLION DOLLARS TO DEVELOP AND THAT IN THE END THE UNITED STATES WOULD HAVE 1,000 OF THEM AND BRITAIN 100. REMEMBERING THE FIVE FAILURES OF ITS FIVE TEST-FIRINGS AND RECALLING THE RANGE AND FLEXIBILITY OF SUCCESSFUL MISSILES NOW AVAILABLE - AND MORE PROMISING, IF MORE COMPLICATED, ONES TO COME - THE PRESIDENT FIRMLY IMPLIED THAT THE "SKYBOLT" WAS NO LONGER WORTH THE RISKS AND COST OF ITS DEVELOPMENT.
