COVER: The Metropolitan's THOMAS FLEMING. New look for Museums.
TOP OF THE WEEK:
SURPRISE PACKAGE: Presidential 1968 has been an exercise in the politics of surprise. And last week produced its quota of startling developments. On the Republican side, Nelson Rockefeller, who was expected to surface as a full-fledged candidate, did just the reverse. Rocky's abdication also left the major pre-nomination battling to the Democrats, the party of the incumbent President. And the Democrats also produced a surprise of their own last week: Bobby Kennedy's showing. Kennedy, who had announced in the previous week, quickly began to make inroads into President Johnson's potential party strength. This was borne out by Newsweek's first Democratic Delegate Count (page 22) which showed Bobby off to a flying start, and suggested that there might be plenty of surprises ahead.
BRITAIN'S BRUTAL BUDGET: "This is it," said Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer Roy Jenkins, "the hardest budget for a long time." In a Draconian effort to breathe new life into the sagging British economy, the Labor government last week called for measures that add up to an actual reduction in the standard of living. How had "Great" Britain been reduced to such straits? Can Prime Minister Wilson stay in power? To find out, the staff of Newsweek's London bureau--Henry Simmons, Irwin Goodwin and Frank Melville--inter- viewed British politicians and experts. From their files, Associate Editor Robert Littell wrote the story.
THE MONEY CRISIS: FAR FROM OVER: On the surface, it looked like a startling exercise in economic legerdemain; with a brief statement announcing a new two-price system for gold, the central bankers of the United States and six Eu- ropean countries all but erased the gold crisis. But a staggering bill remained to be paid--and it appeared that U.S. citizens would pay most of it, in higher taxes, higher travel costs and higher interest rates. The temporary end of the gold crisis--and the painful days at lie ahead--are examined in this week's Spotlight on Business, 'ted from Washington by correspondents Samuel Shaffer and Bishop Jr. and written by General Editor Lawrence Martz.
THOMAS HOVING OF THE METROPOLITAN: In his year as director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Thomas P.F. Hoving has taken up where he left off as New York City's flamboyant and innovative parks commissioner. Hoving's activities at the austere old Met epitomize a new look all across the country for institutions that not too long ago were called "cemeteries." The controversy between conservatives and Hovingites on the question of how mod, hip and involved museums can get is triggering the biggest ferment in U.S. museum's history. The cover story was written by Art editor David L. Shirey who, assisted by reporter Ann Ray Martin, talked with the mercurial Hoving, his colleagues, enemies and family. With four pages of color photographs and a box on the making of a brand-new museum in Fort Worth. (Newsweek cover photo by Bernard Gotfryd.).
