  • Description

    Caroline Kennedy -- cute, blonde and three years old, is likely to go down in history as the only youngster who ever completely and hilariously disrupted a high-level news conference.

    President - elect John F. Kennedy and Senator J. William Fulbright, Arkansas Democrat and Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, were holding a joint news conference at Palm Beach, Florida, Dec. 30th, to report on their discussion of world problems to a group of about 40 newsmen.

    During the conference, Kennedy's daughter Caroline strolled into the glare of television newsreel floodlights, wearing pink pyjamas and a pale blue bathrobe, clutching a pair of her mother's high-heel shoes.

    The conference was convulsed in laughter, but there was no sign of fluster as the president-elect watched Caroline slip into the high-heel shoes and teeter precariously on them.

    At that point, Kennedy took Caroline by the hand and asked whether she thought it would be a good idea to go on back into the house.

    Caroline nodded smiling agreement and shuffled offstage amid uproarious laughter, and the president-elect got back to the business of the conference as though nothing had happened.
