  Mr. Speaker, Mr. President, Members of the Congress, and my fellow Americans: I was thinking as I was walking down the aisle tonight of what Sam Rayburn told me many years ago: The Congress always extends a very warm welcome to the President-as he comes in.

  Thank all of you very, very much. I have come once again to this Chamber-the home of our democracy -- to give you, as the Constitution requires, "Information of the State of the Union." I report to you that our country is challenged, at home and abroad: -- that it is our will that is being tried, not our strength;

  And I report to you that I believe, with abiding conviction, that this people -- nurtured by their deep faith, tutored by their hard lessons, moved by their high aspirations-have the will to meet the trials that these times impose. Since I reported to you last January: -- Three elections have been held in Vietnam -- in the midst of war and under the constant threat of violence. -- A President, a Vice President, a House and Senate, and village officials have been chosen by popular, contested ballot. -- The enemy has been defeated in battle after battle. -- The number of South Vietnamese living in areas under Government protection tonight has grown by more than a million since January of last year.

  These are all marks of progress. Yet: -- The enemy continues to pour men and material across frontiers and into battle, despite his continuous heavy losses. -- He continues to hope that America's will to persevere can be broken. Well -- he is wrong. America will persevere. Our patience and our perseverance will match our power.

  Aggression will never prevail. But our goal is peace -- and peace at the earliest possible moment. Right now we are exploring the meaning of Hanoi's recent statement. There is no mystery about the questions which must be answered before the bombing is stopped. We believe that any talks should follow the San Antonio formula that I stated last September, which said: -- The bombing would stop immediately if talks would take place promptly and with reasonable hopes that they would be productive. -- And the other side must not take advantage of our restraint as they have in the past.

  This Nation simply cannot accept anything less without jeopardizing the lives of our men and of our allies. If a basis for peace talks can be established on the San Antonio foundations -- and it is my hope and my prayer that they can -- we would consult with our allies and with the other side to see if a complete cessation of hostilities -- a really true cease-fire -- could be made the first order of business.

  I will report at the earliest possible moment the results of these explorations to the American people. I have just recently returned from a very fruitful visit and talks with His Holiness the Pope and I share his hope -- as he expressed it earlier today -- that both sides will extend themselves in an effort to bring an end to the war in Vietnam.

  I have today assured him that we and our allies will do our full part to bring this about. Since I spoke to you last January, other events have occurred that have major consequences for world peace. -- The Kennedy Round achieved the greatest reduction in tariff barriers in all the history of trade negotiations. -- The nations of Latin America at Punta del Este resolved to move toward economic integration. -- In Asia, the nations from Korea and Japan to Indonesia and Singapore worked behind America's shield to strengthen their economies and to broaden their political cooperation. -- In Africa, from which the distinguished Vice President has just returned, he reports to me that there is a spirit of regional cooperation that is beginning to take hold in very practical ways.

  I hope to be able to present that treaty to the Senate this year for the Senate's approval. We achieved, in 1967, a consular treaty with the Soviets, the first commercial air agreement between the two countries, and a treaty banning weapons in outer space. We shall sign, and submit to the Senate shortly, a new treaty with the Soviets and with others for the protection of astronauts.

  Serious differences still remain between us, yet in these relations, we have made some progress since Vienna, the Berlin Wall, and the Cuban missile crisis. But despite this progress, we must maintain a military force that is capable of deterring any threat to this Nation's security, whatever the mode of aggression.

  Our choices must not be confined to total war-or to total acquiescence. We have such a military force today. We shall maintain it. I wish -- with all of my heart -- that the expenditures that are necessary to build and to protect our power could all be devoted to the programs of peace. But until world conditions permit, and until peace is assured, America's might -- and America's bravest sons who wear our Nation's uniform -- must continue to stand guard for all of us -- as they gallantly do tonight in Vietnam and other places in the world.

  Yet neither great weapons nor individual courage can provide the conditions of peace. For two decades America has committed itself against the tyranny of want and ignorance in the world that threatens the peace. We shall sustain that commitment. This year I shall propose: -- That we launch, with other nations, an exploration of the ocean depths to tap its wealth, and its energy, and its abundance. -- That we contribute our fair share to a major expansion of the International Development Association, and to increase the resources of the Asian Development Bank. -- That we adopt a prudent aid program, rooted in the principle of self-help. -- That we renew and extend the food for freedom program.

  Our food programs have already helped millions avoid the horrors of famine. But unless the rapid growth of population in developing countries is slowed, the gap between rich and poor will widen steadily. Governments in the developing countries must take such facts into consideration. We in the United States are prepared to help assist them in those efforts.

  Let me speak now about some matters here at home. Tonight our Nation is accomplishing more for its people than has ever been accomplished before. Americans are prosperous as men have never been in recorded history. Yet there is in the land a certain restlessness -- a questioning. The total of our Nation's annual production is now above $800 billion.

  For 83 months this Nation has been on a steady upward trend of growth. All about them, most American families can see the evidence of growing abundance: higher paychecks, humming factories, new cars moving down new highways. More and more families own their own homes, equipped with more than 70 million television sets.

  A new college is founded every week. Today more than half of the high school graduates go on to college. There are hundreds of thousands of fathers and mothers who never completed grammar school -- who will see their children graduate from college. Why, then, this restlessness? Because when a great ship cuts through the sea, the waters are always stirred and troubled.

Not, is there abundance enough for all? -- but, how can all share in our abundance? While we have accomplished much, much remains for us to meet and much remains for us to master. -- In some areas, the jobless rate is still three or four times the national average -- Violence has shown its face in some of our cities. -- Crime increases on our streets. -- Income for farm workers remains far behind that for urban workers;

But the issue is not whether we can change this; the issue is whether we will change this. Well, I know we can. And I believe we will. This then is the work we should do in the months that are ahead of us in this Congress.

It is adding more than a million and a half new jobs this year. Through programs passed by the Congress, job training is being given tonight to more than a million Americans in this country.

Employment officials estimate that 500,000 of these persons are now unemployed in the major cities of America. Our objective is to place these 500,000 in private industry jobs within the next 3 years.

  To do this, I propose a $2. 1 billion manpower program in the coming fiscal year-a 25 percent increase over the current year. Most of this increase will be used to start a new partnership between government and private industry to train and to hire the hard-core unemployed persons. I know of no task before us of more importance to us, to the country, or to our future.

  Another essential is to rebuild our cities. Last year the Congress authorized $662 million for the Model Cities program. I requested the full amount of that authorization to help meet the crisis in the cities of America. But the Congress appropriated only $312 million -- less than half. This year I urge the Congress to honor my request for model cities funds to rebuild the centers of American cities by granting us the full amount that you in the Congress authorized -- $1 billion.

  The next essential is more housing -- and more housing now. Surely a nation that can go to the moon can place a decent home within the reach of its families. Therefore we must call together the resources of industry and labor, to start building 300,000 housing units for low- and middle-income families next year -- that is three times more than this year.

  We must make it possible for thousands of families to become homeowners, not rent-payers. I propose, for the consideration of this Congress, a 10-year campaign to build 6 million new housing units for low and middle-income families. Six million units in the next 10 years. We have built 530,000 the last 10 years.

  Better health for our children -- all of our children -- is essential if we are to have a better America. Last year, Medicare, Medicaid, and other new programs that you passed in the Congress brought better health to more than 25 million Americans. American medicine -- with the very strong support and cooperation of public resources-has produced a phenomenal decline in the death rate from many of the dread diseases.

  But it is a shocking fact that, in saving the lives of babies, America ranks 15th among the nations of the world. And among children, crippling defects are often discovered too late for any corrective action. This is a tragedy that Americans can, and Americans should, prevent. I shall, therefore, propose to the Congress a child health program to provide, over the next 5 years, for families unable to afford it -- access to health services from prenatal care of the mother through the child's first year.

  When we do that you will find it is the best investment we ever made because we will get these diseases in their infancy and we will find a cure in a great many instances that we can never find by overcrowding our hospitals when they are grown. Now when we act to advance the consumer's cause I think we help every American.

  Last year, with very little fanfare the Congress and the executive branch moved in that field. We enacted the Wholesome Meat Act, the Flammable Fabrics Act, the Product Safety Commission, and a law to improve clinical laboratories. And now, I think, the time has come to complete our unfinished work. The Senate has already passed the truth-in-lending bill, the fire safety bill, and the pipeline safety laws.

I call upon the Congress to enact, without delay, the remainder of the 12 vital consumer protection laws that I submitted to the Congress last year. I also urge final action on a measure that is already passed by the House to guard against fraud and manipulation in the Nation's commodity exchange market.

  These measures are a pledge to our people-to keep them safe in their homes and at work, and to give them a fair deal in the marketplace. And I think we must do more. I propose: -- New powers for the Federal Trade Commission to stop those who defraud and who swindle our public. -- New safeguards to insure the quality of fish and poultry, and the safety of our community water supplies. -- A major study of automobile insurance. -- Protection against hazardous radiation from television sets and other electronic equipment.

  They recognize that law enforcement is first the duty of local police and local government. They recognize that the frontline headquarters against crime is in the home, the church, the city hall and the county courthouse and the statehouse -- not in the far-removed National Capital of Washington. But the people also recognize that the National Government can and the National Government should help the cities and the States in their war on crime to the full extent of its resources and its constitutional authority.

  There is no more urgent business before this Congress than to pass the Safe Streets Act this year that I proposed last year. That law will provide these required funds. They are so critically needed that I have doubled my request under this act to $100 million in fiscal 1969. And I urge the Congress to stop the trade in mail-order murder, to stop it this year by adopting a proper gun control law.

  This year, I will propose a Drug Control Act to provide stricter penalties for those who traffic in LSD and other dangerous drugs with our people. I will ask for more vigorous enforcement of all of our drug laws by increasing the number of Federal drug and narcotics control officials by more than 30 percent.

  The time has come to stop the sale of slavery to the young. I also request you to give us funds to add immediately 100 assistant United States attorneys throughout the land to help prosecute our criminal laws. We have increased our judiciary by 40 percent and we have increased our prosecutors by 16 percent.

  The dockets are full of cases because we don't have assistant district attorneys to go before the Federal judge and handle them. We start these young lawyers at $8,200 a year. And the docket is clogged because we don't have authority to hire more of them. I ask the Congress for authority to hire 100 more.

  These young men will give special attention to this drug abuse, too. Finally, I ask you to add 100 FBI agents to strengthen law enforcement in the Nation and to protect the individual rights of every citizen. A moment ago I spoke of despair and frustrated hopes in the cities where the fires of disorder burned last summer.

  We can-and in time we will -- change that despair into confidence, and change those frustrations into achievements. But violence will never bring progress. We can make progress only by attacking the causes of violence and only where there is civil order founded on justice. Today we are helping local officials improve their capacity to deal promptly with disorders.
