Vol. III No. 4

The State of the Union

Article II, Section 3 of our Constitution provides that the President “shall from time to time give the Cor gress information on the state of the Union, and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.” On 6 January the President’s report was read to the newly-assembled 79th Congress. That evening the President himself broadcast a condensed version to the American people. In his message the President discussed four main points. Our overall strategy during the past three years. Our past record and present needs. The kind of peace we aim to have. The opportunities and responsibilities we face when the war ends. Each of these subjects has a vital bearing on and interest to every American soldier. The President in his suggestions for new legislation attacked the problems in forthright fashion. STARS AND STRIPES printed a digest of the radio report, but since any digest is incomplete and omits important information, ARMY TALKS presents the complete text of our Commander-in-Chief.
