The formal Cabinet meeting may be on the way out as an important Washington institution. President Kennedy has long believed that Government has become too big and complex for a board-of-directors kind of approach, and nothing about his first full-dress meetings with his Cabinet changed his mind. "Why should we waste the time of all those men to discuss problems that affect only a few of them?" asks a key Kennedy adviser. Kennedy likes to work best at small luncheon get-togethers, probably will downgrade Cabinet meetings to briefing, orientation, ana purely political skull sessions.
