President Kennedy began the press conference by expressing the Kennedys' gratitude for the numerous congratulatory letters and telegrams they had received. This statement was followed by several announcements concerning the lifting of international travel restrictions on military dependents, the creation of pilot projects for food stamp distribution, veteran's insurance dividends, and the reduction of interest rates for home mortgages. Following the announcements the President answered questions from the press on a variety of topics including his State of the Union address, the economy, United States prisoners in Cuba and China, and Berlin. Background material in the folder includes a memorandum concerning the extension of the Sugar Act of 1948, and several department and agency reports summarizing recent activities.
