Jan. The text of President Roosevelt's nldrcss to u joint session of con- gress today follows: I come before you at the open- ng of tin- regular session of the 73rd congress, not to make re- liiests for special or detailed Items if legislation; I come, rather, to counsel with you, who. like my- self, have been selected to carry out a mandate of the whole peo- ple, In order that without parti- sanship you and I may cooperate to continue the restoration of our national well-being and, equally Important, to build on the ruins of the past a new structure designed better to meet tin- present prob- lems of modern civilization. Such a structure? Includes not only the relations of industry and agriculture and finance to each other, but also the effect which all of these three have- on our Individual citizens and on the whole people as a nation. Now that we are definitely In the process of recovery, lines have been rightly drawn between those to whom this recovery means a return to old the number of these people Is small those for whom recovery means a reform of many old methods, a permanent readjust- ment of many of our ways of thinking and therefore of many of our social and economic arrange- ments. .MethoilK Xece.ssnry Civilization can not go back: civilization must not stand still.

I venture to say that the task confronting the first congress of 1789 was no greater than your vn. I shall not attempt to set forth cither the many phases of the crisis which we experienced last March, nor the many measures which you and I undertook during the special session that we might Initiate recovery and reform.
