  • Description

    President Kennedy's new home being completed on Rattlesnake Mountain near Atoka, Virginia...near Washington, DC.

    Huntley-Brinkley script follows: Finally, a little "Better Homes and Gardens" news from Rattlesnake Mountain, Virginia.There the new house being built by the President and Mrs.Kennedy is almost finished...and may be ready next month, if the roads aren't too muddy for the contractors' trucks to get in.It's a seven-bedroom, five-and-a-half bath, one-story house on a small hill, not really a mountain.And there is a secret agent from the White House detail...assigned there to keep a watch over it...to tell photographers no picture are allowed yet.The agent sleeps in a tent up on a hillside...and during this winter, that can't have been very good duty.The President and his family usually spend Easter at Palm Beach and the house ought to be ready when they get back.And that secret service agent was out there today in a cold rain...living in a tent...while his White House colleagues were guarding the president in Costa Rica in warm sun.

    In addition...Federal Aviation authorities have clamped down on flights over the area...thus preventing the taking of aerials.The White House has not confirmed reports that the new home includes a fallout shelter, although a diagram appearing in the current issue of Newsweek magazine allows for one.
