  Mr. Vice President, my old colleague from Massachusetts and your new Speaker, John McCormack, Members of the 87th Congress, ladies and gentlemen: This week we begin anew our joint and separate efforts to build the American future. But, sadly, we build without a man who linked a long past with the present and looked strongly to the future. "Mister Sam" Rayburn is gone.

  Neither this House nor the Nation is the same without him. Members of the Congress, the Constitution makes us not rivals for power but partners for progress. We are all trustees for the American people, custodians of the American heritage. It is my task to report the State of the Union -- to improve it is the task of us all.

  In the past year, I have traveled not only across our own land but to other lands-to the North and the South, and across the seas. And I have found -- as I am sure you have, in your travels -- that people everywhere, in spite of occasional disappointments, look to us -- not to our wealth or power, but to the splendor of our ideals.

  And when the youngest child alive today has grown to the cares of manhood, our position in the world will be determined first of all by what provisions we make today -- for his education, his health, and his opportunities for a good home and a good job and a good life. At home, we began the year in the valley of recession -- we completed it on the high road of recovery and growth.

  With the help of new congressionally approved or administratively increased stimulants to our economy, the number of major surplus labor u areas has declined from 101 to 60; nonagricultural employment has increased by more than a million jobs; and the average factory work-week has risen to well over 40 hours.

  At year's end the economy which Mr. Khrushchev once called a "stumbling horse" was racing to new records in consumer spending, labor income, and industrial production. We are gratified -- but we are not satisfied. Too many unemployed are still looking for the blessings of prosperity- As those who leave our schools and farms demand new jobs, automation takes old jobs away.

  To expand our growth and job opportunities, I urge on the Congress three measures: (1) First, the Manpower Training and Development Act, to stop the waste of able-bodied men and women who want to work, but whose only skill has been replaced by a machine, or moved with a mill, or shut down with a mine; (2) Second, the Youth Employment Opportunities Act, to help train and place not only the one million young Americans who are both out of school and out of work, but the twenty-six million young Americans entering the labor market in this decade;

  Moreover -- pleasant as it may be to bask in the warmth of recovery -- let us not forget that we have suffered three recessions in the last 7 years. The time to repair the roof is when the sun is shining -- by filling three basic gaps in our anti-recession protection. We need: (1) First, presidential standby authority, subject to congressional veto, to adjust personal income tax rates downward within a specified range and time, to slow down an economic decline before it has dragged us all down; (2) Second, presidential standby authority, upon a given rise in the rate of unemployment, to accelerate Federal and federally-aided capital improvement programs;

  Last year, 1961, despite rising production and demand, consumer prices held almost steady -- and wholesale prices declined. This is the best record of overall price stability of any comparable period of recovery since the end of World War II. Inflation too often follows in the shadow of growth -- while price stability is made easy by stagnation or controls.

  But we mean to maintain both stability and growth in a climate of freedom. Our first line of defense against inflation is the good sense and public spirit of business and labor -- keeping their total increases in wages and profits in step with productivity. There is no single statistical test to guide each company and each union.

  But I strongly urge them -- for their country's interest, and for their own -- to apply the test of the public interest to these transactions. Within this same framework of growth and wage-price stability: -- This administration has helped keep our economy competitive by widening the access of small business to credit and Government contracts, and by stepping up the drive against monopoly, price-fixing, and racketeering; -- We will submit a Federal Pay Reform bill aimed at giving our classified, postal, and other employees new pay scales more comparable to those of private industry; -- We are holding the fiscal 1962 budget deficit far below the level incurred after the last recession in 1958; and, finally, -- I am submitting for fiscal 1963 a balanced Federal Budget.

  But a stronger nation and economy require more than a balanced Budget. They require progress in those programs that spur our growth and fortify our strength. CITIES A strong America depends on its cities-America's glory, and sometimes America's shame. To substitute sunlight for congestion and progress for decay, we have stepped up existing urban renewal and housing programs, and launched new ones -- redoubled the attack on water pollution -- speeded aid to airports, hospitals, highways, and our declining mass transit systems -- and secured new weapons to combat organized crime, racketeering, and youth delinquency, assisted by the coordinated and hard-hitting efforts of our investigative services: the FBI, the Internal Revenue, the Bureau of Narcotics, and many others.

  I urge a new Department of Urban Affairs and Housing. AGRICULTURE AND RESOURCES A strong America also depends on its farms and natural resources. American farmers took heart in 1961 -- from a billion dollar rise in farm income -- and from a hopeful start on reducing the farm surpluses. But we are still operating under a patchwork accumulation of old laws, which cost us $1 billion a year in CCC carrying charges alone, yet fail to halt rural poverty or boost farm earnings.

  Our task is to master and turn to fully fruitful ends the magnificent productivity of our farms and farmers. The revolution on our own countryside stands in the sharpest contrast to the repeated farm failures of the Communist nations and is a source of pride to us all. Since 1950 our agricultural output per man-hour has actually doubled! Without new, realistic measures, it will someday swamp our farmers and our taxpayers in a national scandal or a farm depression.

  I will, therefore, submit to the Congress a new comprehensive farm program -- tailored to fit the use of our land and the supplies of each crop to the long-range needs of the sixties -- and designed to prevent chaos in the sixties with a program of commonsense. We also need for the sixties -- if we are to bequeath our full national estate to our heirs -- a new long-range conservation and recreation program -- expansion of our superb national parks and forests -- preservation of our authentic wilderness areas-new starts on water and power projects as our population steadily increases -- and expanded REA generation and transmission loans.

  But America stands for progress in human rights as well as economic affairs, and a strong America requires the assurance of full and equal rights to all its citizens, of any race or of any color. This administration has shown as never before how much could be done through the full use of Executive powers -- through the enforcement of laws already passed by the Congress-through persuasion, negotiation, and litigation, to secure the constitutional rights of all: the right to vote, the right to travel Without hindrance across State lines, and the right to free public education.

  But there is much more to be done -- by the Executive, by the courts, and by the Congress. Among the bills now pending before you, on which the executive departments will comment in detail, are appropriate methods of strengthening these basic rights which have our full support. The right to vote, for example, should no longer be denied through such arbitrary devices on a local level, sometimes abused, such as literacy tests and poll taxes.

  As we approach the 100th anniversary, next January, of the Emancipation Proclamation, let the acts of every branch of the Government -- and every citizen -- portray that "righteousness does exalt a nation." HEALTH AND WELFARE Finally, a strong America cannot neglect the aspirations of its citizens -- the welfare of the needy, the health care of the elderly, the education of the young.

  For we are not developing the Nation's wealth for its own sake. Wealth is the means -- and people are the ends. All our material riches will avail us little if we do not use them to expand the opportunities of our people. Last year, we improved the diet of needy people -- provided more hot lunches and fresh milk to school children built more college dormitories -- and, for the elderly, expanded private housing, nursing homes, heath services, and social security.

  But we have just begun. To help those least fortunate of all, I am recommending a new public welfare program, stressing services instead of support, rehabilitation instead of relief, and training for useful work instead of prolonged dependency. To relieve the critical shortage of doctors and dentists -- and this is a matter which should concern us all -- and expand research, I urge action to aid medical and dental colleges and scholarships and to establish new National Institutes of Health.

  To take advantage of modern vaccination achievements, I am proposing a mass immunization program, aimed at the virtual elimination of such ancient enemies of our children as polio, diphtheria, whooping cough, and tetanus. To protect our consumers from the careless and the unscrupulous, I shall recommend improvements in the Food and Drug laws-strengthening inspection and standards, halting unsafe and worthless products, preventing misleading labels, and cracking down on the illicit sale of habit-forming drugs.

  Private health insurance helps very few -- for its cost is high and its coverage limited. Public welfare cannot help those too proud to seek relief but hard-pressed to pay their own bills. Nor can their children or grandchildren always sacrifice their own health budgets to meet this constant drain. Social security has long helped to meet the hardships of retirement, death, and disability.

  Yet nearly half lack either the funds or the facilities to attend college. Enrollments are going to double in our colleges in the short space of 10 years. The annual cost per student is skyrocketing to astronomical levels -- now averaging $1,650 a year, although almost half of our families earn less than $5,000. They cannot afford such costs -- but this Nation cannot afford to maintain its military power and neglect its brainpower.

  But excellence in education must begin at the elementary level. I sent to the Congress last year a proposal for Federal aid to public school construction and teachers' salaries. I believe that bill, which passed the Senate and received House Committee approval, offered the minimum amount required by our needs and -- in terms of across-the-board aid -- the maximum scope permitted by our Constitution.

  I therefore see no reason to weaken or withdraw that bill: and I urge its passage at this session. "Civilization," said H. G. Wells, "is a race between education and catastrophe." It is up to you in this Congress to determine the winner of that race. These are not unrelated measures addressed to specific gaps or grievances in our national life.

  All of these efforts at home give meaning to our efforts abroad. Since the close of the Second World War, a global civil war has divided and tormented mankind. But it is not our military might, or our higher standard of living, that has most distinguished us from our adversaries. It is our belief that the state is the servant of the citizen and not his master.

  This basic clash of ideas and wills is but one of the forces reshaping our globe -- swept as it is by the tides of hope and fear, by crises in the headlines today that become mere footnotes tomorrow. Both the successes and the setbacks of the past year remain on our agenda of unfinished business. For every apparent blessing contains the seeds of danger -- every area of trouble gives out a ray of hope -- and the one unchangeable certainty is that nothing is certain or unchangeable.

  Yet our basic goal remains the same: a peaceful world community of free and independent states -- free to choose their own future and their own system, so long as it does not threaten the freedom of others. Some may choose forms and ways that we would not choose for ourselves -- but it is not for us that they are choosing.
