WASHINGTON March The text of President Roosevelts message to the special session of Congress follows To the Senate and House of Rep resentatives On March S banking operations In the United Slates ceased To review at this time the causes of this failure of our banking system is unneces Suffice it to say that the pov erhment had hcicn compelled to step in for the protection oC depositors and the business of the nation Our first task Is to reopen all sound banks This is an essential pre liminary to subsequent legislation directed against speculation with the funds depositors and other viola tions of positions of trust In order that the first the opening oC banks Cor tbe re sumption of bo ac complished I ask of the Congress the immediate enactment of legisla tion giving to the Executive branch of the Government control over banks for the protection of deposi tors authority forthwith to open such banks as have already been as certained to be in sound condition and other such banks as rapidly as possible and authority to reorganize reopen such banks as may bo found to require reorganization to put them on a sound basis T ask amendments to the Federal Reserve Act to provide for svich ad ditional currency adequately securec as it may become necessary to Issue to meet all demands for currency and at the same time to achieve this end without increasing the un secured indebtedness of the govern ment of the United States I cannot too strongly urpe upon the Congress the clear necessity for immediate action A continuation of the strangulation oC ties is unthinkable The passage of the proposed legislation will end this condition and I trust within a short space of time will result in a resump tion of business activities Xn addition it is my belief that this legislation will not only lift Imme diately all unwarranted doubts and suspicions Jn regard lo banks which are 100 per sound but will also mark the beginning of a new rela tionship between thebanks ami the people of this country The members of the new Congress will realize J am confident the grave responsibility which lies upon me and upon them Jn the short space of five days it is impossible for us lo formulate com pleted mensures to prevent the re currence of the evils of the past This does not and should not however justify any delay in accomplishing this first step At an early moment T shall request of the Congress two other measures which T regard as of immediate urgency With action taken thereon we can proceed to the consideration of a rounded program of national restoration
