President Eisen howers State of the Union Message to Congress PEACE Recent Soviet deportment andpronouncements sug gest the possible opening of a somesvhat less strained period in the relationships between the Soviet Union and the free world whether this is to become an era of lasting promise re mains to be tested by actions The United States is always ready to participate with the Soviet Union in serious discussion of these or any other subjects that may lead to peace with justice DEFENSE America possesses an enormous defense power It is my studied conviction that no nation will ever risk general war against us unless we should be so foolish as to neglect the de fense forces we now so powerfully support It is worldwide knowledge that any nation which might be tempted today to at tack the United States even though our country might sus tain great losses would itself promptly suffer a terrible destruc tion But I once again assure all peoples and all nations that the United States

as in other issues dividing men and nations we can not expect sudden and revolutionary results But we mUst find some place to begin One obvious road on which to make a useful start is in the field of widening communication between pur two peoples another avenue may be through the reopen ing of negotiations looking to a controlled ban on thetesk ing of nuclear weapons still another avenue may be
