And, in a State of the Union message, the young President surprised many legislators by calling vigorously for multi-billion-dollar federal aid to public schools and for civil rights legislation. Many had developed the notion that the ad- ministration would soft-pedal these issues this year. "The right to vote should no longer be arbitrarily denied through such in- iquitous local devices as literacy tests and poll Kennedy declared. Wrapped up in his report on how the nation stands and what is needed were many well-anticipated requests for creation of a new Cabinet-level Department of Urban Affairs, for higher postal rates, for a new farm program. Details on most of these were left for elaboration in later special messages.
