Some JFK tape records are released in Boston

About 5 percent of the secret tape recordings made by President John F. Kennedy during his last 16 months in office were released Thursday. The released tapes were about the University of Mississippi integration crisis and 1962-63 tax cut proposals. Much of the tapes was unintelligible because of poor audio quality.

Researchers who hoped for more information about Mr. Kennedy's involvement in Vietnam, the Cuban missile crisis, and more volatile topics were disappointed. Most of the tapes will remain classified to protect national security and privacy.
