Papers of John F. Kennedy. Presidential Papers. President's Office Files.
This folder contains materials collected by the office of President John F. Kennedy's secretary, Evelyn Lincoln, concerning President Kennedy's television and radio statement following a Congressional cut in the Mutual Security Act. In his speech the President characterizes the decision to reduce foreign aid expenditures as shortsighted and dangerously partisan, explaining how a decrease in foreign assistance will weaken the Alliance for Progress and undermine the United States' efforts to curtail the spread of communism. Materials in this folder include a press copy of the speech and an additional copy with handwritten notations by the President.
