He said a bill to make the com- pletion of a sixth-grade education the only literacy requirement for voting in federal elections also will be offered. "The abolition of state poll taxes is a modest, but necessary step in our civil rights Humphrey said. "We will follow the same pattern in trying to get action on the literacy test issue."

Except for fresh words of per- suasion, the presidential message generally follows in -all essentials previews of the aid program for the 1963 fiscal year already pre- sented in Kennedy's budget and State of the Union message. The President proposed of appropriations for eco- nomic help and for military assistance, to make up the total. Last year he asked for a total of and got only a reduction of Congress provided for economic and for military aid. Expenditures, which always trail behind appropriations, would go up from an expected to for eco- nomic assistance for the 1952 and 1363 fiscal years. Those for mili- tary aid would remain unchanged at billion for each year. Kennedy said his recommenda- tions are based on careful exami- nation or urgent needs. The amounts in every category, he said, are essential to achieving the goal of strengthening develop-i ing countries to meet the stress of rapid change and to "repel j i Communist efforts to exploit suchi Contending that slashes by Con- gress would be hazardous, the chief executive said: "We should know by now that where weak- ness and dependence are not transformed into strength and self-reliance, we can expect only chaos, and then tyranny, to follow."

The council was launched only last year but already claims the backing of a half million men and women around the country, many of them associated with local Golden Age clubs and other or- ganizations of senior citizens. The ailing, 77-year-old president sat on the sidelines while Prime Minister Nehru escorted Mrs. Kennedy around the horseshoe- shaped line of guests. Mrs. Kennedy shook hands with [everyone. She wore a cool green, 'sleeveless linen dress by her offi- cial designer, Oleg Cassini, three strands of pearls and beige shoes. A white linen bow was pinned in the back of her hair. Princess Radziwill also wore green, a sleeveless silk print. Since the Indian government op- poses the use of alcohol, no liquor was served.
