Johnson. "A communist military takeover In South Vietnam Is no longer just Improbable. As long as the United States und our brave allies are In the field it is impossible.

Another Voice: "Throughout the country, in the lost seven or eight years, we have hod 8500 or more murders a year.

There arc many other objcctlora to this bill, as may he rccn through a review of the hearing records.
The Governor of the State of Idaho. Robert E. Smylie. in a letter to me of May 20. I9G6. made several si-mificant observations on S. 1592. The Governor stated:
Any action now taken could -ir.d should be freed on calm, thoughtful reasoning and judgment rather than to be conceived In hysteria and founded vrs emotion.
He soundly counsels that
It would be quite unnx.iLs.uc ar.d r-xdhardy to believe that a man bent upon assassinating the President could be effectively Jeterrcd by any statutes regulating or prohibiting the c jr:d po-itjo. fl.cti-.u %t-^p
To support this position, the Governor cites Mr. Justice Daii-ilas:

approach represented by the pending legislation. History provides many examples of government control over the purchase or possession of firearms. None Is admirable In origin or effect. We starch In vain for evidence of * statute which has lowered the rate of crime evidence before Its adoption. The most eloquent firearms law Is tlie one under which, the club members of our council haic spent their lives. We are qualified both by training and *.hc experience of our dally lives to speak of It knowingly. We can Judge the probable experience of this Nation If S. 1592 Is adopted by our own experience under our local law This judgment leads to the conviction that the most prominent effect of S. 1592 would be a substantial and prolonged Increase In the rate of violent crime throughout the Nation. This Judgment is neither reached nor voiced frivolously, or without great study. It arises because ol the marked similarities of approach between S. 1592 and chapter 136 ol the laws of 1893 (New York.). the recodlficatlon of what Is known as the Sullivan law. That law has been covered In such detail from so many sources. Including Senate hearings In 1964. that Its structure can be passed over here, and attention focused on Its results. Those results, for New York City, the Jurisdiction for which we can speak from personal experience and authority, are summarized below: 1. A substantial reduction In the number of firearms In the hands of lawful citizens with great damage to reputable commerce In arms and ammunition. (Viz. number of licenses Issued each year.) 2. An appalling increase In the rate of violent crime, and of the importance of violent crime as a percentage of total crime. (Viz. appended statistics for violent and total crime categories from New York City Police Department reports. Note that violent crimemurder, rape, robbery, felonious assault, and burglaryhas risen from 24 percent of all felonies In 1945 to -17 percent of all felonies In 1964 ) 3. An Inconccalable explosion In the cost of providing police protection to the citizens of this city. It may at flrst glance prove difficult to accord these results to a law whose avowed purpose and constantly repeated defense l that It serves to contain the criminal. Nonetheless, the conclusion Is Inescapable that. Just as prohibition, under the Volstead Act turned us Into a nation characterized by wanton and promiscuous consumption of alcoholic beverages, the "Sullivan law" has had the paradoxical effect of spawning violence where none existed, and of reinforcing the power of the professional criminal. The citizen walking abroad in the streets of New York City is an open Invitation to the criminal. The lawbreaker knows that his victim hag been stripped of the means of self-defense, and that bystanders or witnesses have been similarly shorn of their ability to act as dcfcrrcnt to the crime, defense to the victim (and by fear of subsequent irresistible violence), or witness to the prosecution. Given this Incentive, the criminal has armed himself with unprecedented frequency, and engaged In crimes of a nature almost proscribed by the previous condition: namely, that a few (certainly a small percentage, but an existing percentage nonetheless and sii(Helent to serve as a deterrent) of Ills potential victims had the means to resist a criminal attack, and leave the attacker dcnd upon the s'.rcct. Under the "Sullivan law." we have encountered curious phenomena: witnesses fearful of even summoning police (let alone of providing testimony) In anxiety over retribution; rapists capable of attacking up to 30 women before encountering a condition of seriously threatening resistance; and cltlzni under Indictment for acting In firmed

8.1592DO THE STATES WANT THI3 JjOND OF HELP? Mr. HRTJggA. Mr. President. S. 1592. the administration's controversial firearms control bill, has been reported favorably from. le Juvenile Delinquency Subcommittee and will be considered by the lull Senate Judiciary Committee In the new future. This bill has evoked a storm of criticism, much of It coming from sportsmen's and conservation groups. However, the protest is not limited to these groups by any means. On the contrary, my malland this Senator is sure that the mail of other Senators also reflects an outpouring from across the Nation from citizens who are rightly alarmed at the prospects of S. 1582 being enacted. Such a letter was received recently by my good friend, the distinguished Senior Senator from Idaho [Mr. JORDAN]. Senator JOKDAK thoughtfully provided
Mr. Smylic then offers a meaningful criterion that any Federal firearms control legislation should serve: "to strengthen existing, and, in most cases, adequate State laws" and suggests this can be done by broadening the provisions of the Federal Firearms Act of 1938 so that It would be violation of the act for any persons to sell or ship firearms in Interstate or foreign commerce in violation of any State firearms statute. The present law is narrower in that the Federal sanctions now apply only to persons who ship or sell in violation of State permit law. He properly contends that the destructive devices such as antitank guns, bazookas, and the like should be regulated as machlneguns are now under the provisions of the National Firearms Act of 1934. This is the approach of S. 1591, a bill Introduced by the dlstinglushed Senator from Connecticut [Mr. DODD! now pending in the Senate Finance Committee. Although there are minor problems of definition, it is a measure that this Senator su-ports in principle. Its approach to the problem is much better than the sections of S. 1592 which deal with the subject. S. 1592 would require prior r ">lice approval before a sale or transfer of a destructive device could be made tc an individual, whereas S. 1591 would extend the provisions of the National Firearms Act which crM for registration of such devices. No prior police clearance is necessary.

But "It would be quite unrealistic and foolhardy to believe that a man bent upon assassinating the President could be effectively deterred by any statute reKtii.itiiig or pruli.bui.ig the purchase and possession of lethal weapons." A remA.-k tn.-it seems iippropv'S *os m.idc by Justice Douglas of the United States Supreme Court as part of a 19G3 statement on the Bill of Rights: "Fear of assassination often produces restraints compatible with dictatorship, not democracy."

The additional fact th.it provisions of tnls biil would place unnecessary bwjk-'.ctp.iig and adDi.ru^^ative rJcns on small f.rcarms dealers is also a.tter warranting consideration.

support given the bill (S 1592 > by the bar, and I commend him in this regard. There being no objection, the address was ordered to be printed in the RECORD, as follows:
EFFECTIVE FEDERAL FIR-.KMS LEGISLATIONA MODSIUTE RESPONSE TO A CRITICAL PROBLEM I understand that the house of delegates will this week consider a resolution In suppo't of Senate bill 1592. which would amend and greatly strengthen the Federal Firearms Act. I am. together with Senator THOMAS J. DODD, of Connecticut, and otters, a sponsor of this legislation. I am also a member of the subcommittee that has been holding hearings on the bill. I. therefore, welcome this opportunity to explain the reasons I support It. This bill has been the target of heavy fire from one of the most intense pressure campaigns I have ever seen. I have received thousands of letters, most of them based, I am sorry to say. on misleading propaganda and misinformation. If I thought the heavy mall I am receiving represented the Informed opinion of my constituents. It would give me great pause. But, It is clear that the overwhelming majority of writers do not understand what the bill would really do. In the case of one group of several hundred letter-, obviously inspired by the National Rifle Association, the writers uniformly misspelled my name. Now, my wife says that Is a good way to cut a Junior Senator down to size. But, I can tell you It Is not the way to Impress him that the writer Is well Informed. I wish to make clear at the outset that this bill would not interfere with the legitimate use of firearms. I, myself, am a hunter. There Is nothing I enjoy more then a mornIng In the duckbllnds with Major, our Chesapeake Bay retriever. I am also an enthusiastic. If not accurate, skeet shooter. If I thought this bill really Interfered with bona fide hunters and sportsmen, I would oppose It with all my force. Rather, I am persuaded after careful study and extensive hearings that the bill as drawn, with only a few minor amendments. Is a reasonable and moderate response to a serious national problem. We read dally of shootings, murders and armed felonies. We all arc aware that crime has become a problem of crisis proportions. I am convinced from the facts that the uncontrolled distribution of guns Is contributing to our crime problem. The particular evil which Is the target of the firearms bill is uncontrolled Interstate mall-order trnfllc In guns and destructive devices. This traffic Is placing lethal weapons In the hands of minors without the knowledge or consent of their parents. It Is allowing criminals and the mentally unstable to obtain weapons they could not get legally on the local market. It Is stocking the private arsenals of secretive extremist groups the Ku Klux Klan, the Black Muslims, and the so-called It.mutcmcn. Abovo all, it Is undermining the firearms laws and regulations of our States and cU.s. Tho bulk of the mall-order trade, and especially of that part which this legislation Is Intended to choke off, consists of cheap foreign weaponsmostly military castoirs which arc being dumped on our shores by the millions. Most of these imported guns arc of Inferior quality, often to the point of endangering their owners. Most arc unsultcd for hunting, sport shooting, or any other legitimate activity. Even the National Rlflo Association professes itself willing to sec these Import.*! curbed. law enforcement agencies can clto case after case In which mall-order weapons have been used In the perpetration of crime, Incident after irnglc Incident of accidental In-

Most seriously from my viewpoint, the filial pressure that now seems to be underway is to convince those Members who say they cannot bring themselves to vote for this legislation to take a walk. Now. when anybody, least of all, I think, leaders in an Administration; have the temerity to urge Members of Congress to take a walk on an Issue as vital a* this, then I think there is something wrong. ThU is the kind of an issue where I hope every Member is going to be here to vote on the amendments as they are offered, and I hope that every Member that is physically able Js going to be here to be recorded.

I think it is true of the despairing boy of the marginal farm of the South, of the Middle West or the Par West. I think it is true of the boy oh the front porch of the shack in the stripped mines of Appalachia. Shalt we look to the local communities to assume the entire burden of breaking the hammcrlock of poverty, of rescuing these young lives, although in the main they lack both size and economic ability to handle alone a comprehensive attack on poverty? Or shall we shape from our Federal, State, local, and private programs a key with which to open the door on increased earning power and spread opportunities for education, skills and jobs, for health, for community, and area rehabilitation? Only a national, multlprongtd, cooperative program, utilizing nil the resources available to us from these four major areas, can handle a problem which is national In scope and diverse in its causes, while producing the common result of extreme and ircrslstent poverty. Our deficiencies in training and, education among the poor arc being accentcd and increased by our rapid tech. nologlcal advances. A fioou example c-f this in my own State of Oklahoma tus cited by Commissioner of Education Keppcl In his testimony before the committee. He said that recently when nn Armour It Co. plnnt closed in Oklahoma City, an ruUorcnUun commute established by the company, the United Packlnfihoiisc Workers Union, and the Amaleftmnted Meat Cutters Union, f jund that of tha 170 workers who were tested for retrainin?, only CO had enough educational background to indicate that they would benefit from vocational training. The remaining 65 percent were told that thcr beat chance fur implement \\ouUi bv in casual labor. Now via all know that jobs for unskilled labor arc bccunuitb Incicu.MUuly scarce and that many of those in the poverty bracket work at them, sometimes more than one pciJon In the family, and still tiicy cannot make, onouch to provide a decent baste st.wd. ard of living.

The "aged" principal of this little poverty drama in Georgia was one 02-yearold Alvertus J. Butler, who has operated the same store In the same place since 1938. He said that secret service agents had been out to sec him four times in preparation for the President's poverty visit. Despite the elaborate stag* setting, the newspaper acount says the President's first question to Butler was: "Is this your store?" "Yes, sir," said Butler. "I hope I can bunA a new one it ttthe urban renewal programpasses. But I don't wanf to have to move from here if X can help it." Almost Immediately, according to the news accounts. Johnson emerged from the store, outmancuvercd his guards and walked Into the crowd for a round of handshaking. Politics, not poverty, was again the order of the day. Four days ago. on August 2. a reporter for Atlanta. Ga.'s. new newspaper, the Atlanta Times, interviewed Alvertus Butler and got the story that Atlanta's new frontier sheet deliberately overlooked. Alvertus Butler, the Georgia Negro sc\tt,ttd to x\Vi to l#wton Johnson or. May 8 on the subject of poverty, doc* not consider himself In the needy category at all. As was brotiRht out In the Atlanta Times story ott August 2. this Negro operates a successful Janitorial service and store. He has provided his children with college educations. He likes to take long vacation trips every other year, and ha* traveled in Canada and Mexico and every other State on the mainland except Florida. Incldcntialty. he drives a late model Lincoln Continental with air conditioning. The. ftU&nto TtoAft*. ftskcd BuUtt tow he feels about the so-called antipovcrty program. Butler replied:

It appears that when better cases are made for rejecting the Landrum-Powell so-called poverty bill, the State of Georgia and Lyndon Johnson will supply them. Mr. PERKINS. Mr. Chairman. I yield 10 minutes to the gentleman from Pennsylvania (Mr. PttXTl. (Mr. DENT asked and was given Pfctn&aton to mis* r.d extend rte remarks.) Mr. DBKB./ Mr. Chairman, a long time ago I JMPdU did not have time
in my busy schedule to read editorials that generally criticized my party or my friends. I did not lose much in not doing that because sooner or later they cropped up in the RECORD. When a Republican had nothing else to do, he would read something -that somebody else thought of for him in the form of an editorial. Mr. Chairman, this legislation appear* to be condemned more by what forae -people think about the approach to presenting the legislation than by wl ,t i contained in it. Very few opposition speakers have taken the time to discus* the need or the lack of need for this kind of legislation. This bill before us for the first time in the history of thi* Nation, or any other civilized nation, i* aimed at the eventual elimination of the oldest curse amongst menpoverty. No nation, no matter how wealthy it may be. can justify a claim to greatness while in its midst it has millions of people, young and old, living in the midst of abject poverty. Some two-fifth* of the citizens of this Nation of our* live in conditions below tne normal standards considered to be a minimum way of life in our Nation. As in most cases of governmental aid and subsidy, thi* legislation started out on the premise that its funds would bt distributed, on the basis of the old formula of need, counting, of course, the average income in a 8tte. This committee has wisely worked out a new formula which will give to the once prosperous State* an even and equitable distribution of the fund* in this particular piece of legislation. Because of the high wage and high income economic conditions in many ot the *ocalleo. wealthy autes ol yesterday, we find that in most ot the appropriating bills that come out of Congret* the northeastern States of thi* Nation hate suffered because of a depreciation in the amount of taxe* paid to the Treasury and the amount returned to that State. If you will look up the' record you will find that the very States that at one time were known a* prosperous State* of this Nation have now become what we call permanently depressed State* of the Union. > X nnd in my long years of living on this earthI say "long" because it will not be a great many yean when I will Yiwvt rrohwa thfc Bfrncftl allowance it three score yean and tenthat poverty has no color. It has no religious creed and no ethnic background. All peoples have had poverty in their midst. To the everlasting credit of this period of our life and our history and to the courageous leadership of the President of the United States. Lyndon B. Johnson, we now arc trying to do something about it. We are not going to believe, as some would, that because there have always been the poor, necessarily there must always be the poor.

We rib.longer can sustain this drain upon the future of our area and our State, >Ve heed help and we need It now. I say to you, Pennsylvania Members on the Republican side, that if you fall to recognize the needs of your State and vote because of the political turnover of the Governor of your State, a young man whom many, many liberal Republicans had the hope would turn out to be a little differenta man who has called upon, as I understand, the Republican Members, to reject this legislation and yet a man who knows that he has asked and he has begged this Congress to pass a bill known as Appalachia to give some $800 million to that depressed area of out Nation. A great portion of this $800 million will go to the State of Pennsylvania. Can we be so callous in Pennsylvania as to demand for our needy people special legislation and to close the door upon the needs of othc'rs? Arc we as Representatives of that great State saying to this Congress, as did our Governor. "Yes. we want you to give us special legislation to rehabilitate our forests; to reclaim our devastated coal lands: to bring back to our people and to our institutions hope for tomorrow" but only for Pennsylvania and not for the rest of the country? How callous can you be? 1 say to you, I will not ask the Members of this Congress to vote for Appalachia if the Members of tho Pennsylvania delegation do not support the needy in other States of the Union. I say to you that tlus bill is fair. Pennsylvania needs It. If we get from you the aid that we need and wont, then we owe it to you to clve you the old your needs demand. Mr. Chilrman. the legislation before us Is a challenge to every Member of this Congress. The Issues ore clear cuL It Is a division by tills body as to where the resources and revenues of this Nation arc to be used in our effort to rebuild our depreciating personal economy. Tim question of the cost of tills program nppcnrs to be the whipping boy in the efforts of the opportunists to defeat tho measure. Now nil of us must realize that this Is the red herring in the whole tsiiic. When you stop to think about other Items of cost voted for or approved by the silence of the Members, the cost of this program, less than $1 billion, might be c- insidcrcd modest by comparison. My worthy colleagues of the opposition stampeded the rollcall In their efforts to pass a poverty bill subsidizing the textile mill owners the sum of $370 million to be divided up by the mill owners atter they had already cut up their 1DC3 profit pic of $162 million. Now you may not see the need for the families earning under $3.000 a year for the kind of help provided by this present proposal you certainly must admit that the criteria for passing out 1370 million
rcotint the elimination of all safecuards for U.S. industry and the U.8. worker at the Customs Office. No Nation can survive in a free-for-all competitive nght where no holds are barred between high-cost and Jow-cort production areas. I believe tlie issue Is ctaar cut. We cannot fully recoup our losses in AppalachiA while the free-trade nonprotective proponents succeed in their unecono mic. unsound aims, and are left to freely promote thnlr false doctrines of free trade to an unsuspecting public and the Congress of the United States. In the search for an answer to our poverty in some areas we must consider all the angles. The United States is exporting jobs to foreign countries at a faster rate than either industry or Federal subsidy programs can create new ones. This is the inescapable conclusion of a well-documented study of UK effects of this Nation's foreign trade policies on employment trends in this country. The study also revealed: First President Johnson's appealing war on poverty is threatened with dis-
mal failure in iU goal of creating new jobk for America's unsk^led and poorly educated men and women wbo stake up the mass of the Nation's poverty stricken. Second. Our foreicn economic policy not only contra&cU the Job goals of the war or. poverty, but also is unresponsive to the realities of the employment needs of the Notion's impoverished, Jobhungry group, The Economic Opportunity Act of 18*4. the administration's blueprint for waging war on unemployment and poverty, Ignores the impact of foreign trade on Joblessneis. This It an unfortunate and perhaps fatal weakness in the administration's battle plan. The measure does recognise the need for improvement of social services to the poverty strkken. It does provide for job retraining and creation of new edit"** tlonal opportunity*. But these.Heps, while necessary, simply do not in themselves crecte new jobs. The measure.

Projection of these experience* to cover 152 industries, of which the 48 were merely a sampling, Indicate* that creascd imports. The 152 Industries include the 83 which met all five tests established by the Commerce Department plus 69 others which met 4 of the 5 tests established to identify those with big potential for employment of unskilled workers. Paradoxically, none of the Industries represented in this study were 'damaged by the dramatically higher levels of imports from foreign producers. The American industries, on the contrary, enjoyed moderate to good production, sales. an earning increases, and were able to Increase capital investments to expand production facilities. Where did the damage strike? The full burden of the adverse economic effects of our foreign trade policy was borne by those least able to shoulder It jobless unskilled breadwinners whose families represent approximately onefifth of our 30 million citizens living In poverty today. An increasing proportion of consumer demand in this country for products of the IK industries was met by goods imported from foreign countrieseach of which enjoyed virtually full employment during the 5-year period. Consider these contrasts in unemployment rates for 1962 alone: the United States, 5.6 percent; Japan. OJ ptrcent; Beteium. 1.8 percent; W-vt Germany. 0.7 percent; France, less man 1 percent; United Kingdom, 2 percent; the Netherlands. 0.8 percent: and Italy. 3.1 percent. These unemployments ratios, were recorded in a year when U.8. import* ot goods produced by the 48 Industries studied had reached $686.1 million, a 90.9 percent increase over the level of such Imports In 1958. During this same 5-year period. ?xports of the 48 study industries Increased only 18.8 percent from $638.0 million to $7582 mlUior. Simply put. imports of products of the industries studied quadrupled the rate of growth of their exports during the 5-year period and America's balance of trade shifted from a plus $172.8 million to A minus $129.9 million. It is apparent from these facts that any steps taken to reduce Joblessness in these particular Industries that do not provide for an adjustment in the foreign trade picture will meet with certain failure.
dustry group's export experience. The export experience was significantly influenced by heavy VS. foreign aid expenditures for textile machinery for shipment to underdeveloped countries.As of June 30,1963, project expenditures on textile machinery for countries of the Near East, South Asia, and the Far East during the period 1955-63 totaled $6.2 billion, nonproject expenditures for textile machinery for export to such areas totaled $66.5 million. In fiscal year 1963, 44 percent of AID expenditures for textile machinery were made in the United States. Source: Agency for International Development. From the data presented in table IV, appendix,.the key aspects of the foreign trade experience of the three-industry group arc summarized, as follows: First. Imports of products competitive with tho output of the three-industry group increased at an average rate of 28.1 percent per year, 1958-62. This is double the rate ot the Increased import* affecting the 23-ihdustrjr group, at 14.4 percent, and triple the rats of increased Imports of all manufactures, at 9.2 percent per year. It is also well above the 19.6 percent average rate of Increased imrforts in the 22-industry group. Ihe strength of domestic demand increased in the 3-industry product group at virtually the same rate as in the 23industry group, but below that for all manufacturing. Yet the Imports of the products competitive with the three-industry group rose sharplj at double the rate of increase of the 23-lndustry group. The higher labor intensity of the products of the three in comparison with the 23 provides a partial explanation of the swifter Import rise. Second. Exports by the three-industry group also Increased at a rccordbrcakinc pace. The average rate of increase w* 17 percent per year. 1958-43. compared with a 2.4 percent rate for the 23-industry croup. 2.8 percent for the 22-lndustry group, and 4.8 iwrccnt for all manufacturing as n whole. Foreign aid expenditures for textile machinery, one of the three Industries, chiefly explains this stronit export rise, as previously noted. Third. The balance of trade In the products of the three Industries rose IrrcKUlarly, 1058 through 1961, from $28.7 million to $43.1 million, then dropwd off sharply to $7.9 million In 1963. The drop in the trade balance. 1962 compared with 1958. was 72.5 percent from 1961 to 1002.81.7 percent. Fourth. The ImiwrtaiuV share of apparent domestic consumption rose steadily dining the iwrlod 1958 to 19C2. Increasing at the atcraKC rate of 21 percent. Tills sharj>l> contrasts with the average rate ot Imirort iwnctratlon of 10 IMjrccnt per year for the 22-lndustry Kruitp. 8.C iwrccttt fur the 23-lndustry group, and 3,3 percent per year for all nmm.r.icturlnK as a whole.

potential for the guidance of the President. Unless, therefore, the attention of the President is drawn to this problem, he will not have an opportunity to use his authority under section 225 (c) of the Trade ExpaiusJon-ActJ*? rcserye~.the.prp? duct categories of the labor-intensive groups of industries analyzed in this study from further tariff reductions. Second. Should not action be taken by the United States to limit imports of all articles in the product categories of these labor-intensive groups to the extent of restoring to the domestic industry the output lost to imports since 1958? As a result of an adverse shift of $302.7 million in the balance of trade in the products of the 3 industry groups, the Nation sustained a low of 34,937 Jobs. The increase in Imports of articles competitive with the products of these industry groups between 1958 and 1962 equaled $422.9 million. A limitation of import* to an amount 25.8 percent above the 1958 level would restore to these domestic industry groups the output potential lost to foreign producers during the period 1958-62. This restoration would result in an increase in employment in the approximate amount of the 34,937 Job loss referred to above. The reduction in imports required would be $302.7 million, equivalent to only 9.2 percent of the increase in imports in all manufactures between 1958 and 1962. The tariff adjustment authority of the Trade Expansion Act is limited to the correction of "serious injury" to a domestic Industry. The condition precedent to the use of the authority is a determination by the Tariff Commission that Increased imports, caused In major part by a tariff concession, are the major cause of such "serious Injury." This "serious Injury" test Is wholly inapplicable to the situation presented in this study In which actual and potential jobs, urgently required for the Nation In behalf of Its poverty stricken, are being lost due to adverse foreign trade trends. Loss of jobs or job potential in industries capable of providing employment for the poverty stricken is the test required here- -not serious injury to the industries concerned. In the principal Industry croup discussed above, that of the 22 Industries. a "serious injury" determination is out of the question. Is the Nation to be helpless to regulate Its foreign trade so as to serve the needs of its poor? The President has emphasized that no economic objective Is of greater importance, than winning the war on poverty. If jobs are to be created in the requisite numbers t provide employment for thepoverty stricken, major job lows in the Industrie.: wliich must provide that employment must be halted. These Job losses occur in the foreign trade area The action required must be taken In that area. Since the President lacks the authority 'o act. notion should be taken by the Connies to authorize the limitation of Imports in a manner and to the extent necessary to prevent the loss of jobs.

Du* Doo- We note that the House Education nncl Labor-Committee has.^proved the President's omnibus war on poverty bill (Introduced as H-R 10440) We have studied nnd formed some opinions on this approach to solving the problem of poverty In the United States, and I thought you might like to have *ome of our views on this subject. Pint of all, Bon. let mo say tht *e rtcogr ize the seriousness of the problem in the Onlted States. Poverty mny not be ns widespread ns the administration contends, but It does exist in many areas of the Nation, nnd in sufficient degree to be of real concern to alt Americans. For this reason. It deserves public attention and action to seek out solutions. But while some of th propoMl* included ta HJt. 10440 have merit, the bill as a whole seem* to us to represent an extremely costly collection of proposed solutions for effect* rather than causes of poverty la the United State*. To Illustrate how costly this approach would be. w* estimate that the first year cost of this program (ft billion) would tend to add $1 million to Caterpillar's tax bill. That represent* the cost to on* company, and Indicate* how enormously expensive this program would be to many others. We feel there are some positive Alternatives which might prove equally effective. and would not be newly n* costly. In our opinion, the** alternative* deserve serious consideration by our Government In it* efforts to find solutions. Some of the alternative ways to fight poverty In the United State* might be: (1) Continuing effort* to increase TJA export* and thereby create : \or* Job* for Americans. One way to aecom 'inn this: by negotiating reciprocal tariff re uctlons, a* we art attempting to do at the JATT meetings in Geneva.

(3) Restraint by organized labor in It* InacMlng -demands for higher wages and benefit*. (4) Meaningful civil tight* legislation designed to Insure equal educational and employment opportunity for minority groups. (5) More selective ttu of Stnte aid to schools to upgrade education in "poverty Impacted" areas. (0) Elective private locnl.

drastic action without a complete revaluation of all of the aspect* of poverty. The House Education and Labor Committee held hearings on this omnibus antipoverty billa bill that even its proponents admitted presented a network of problems. I believe that you will agree with inc that sections of the proposed bill might have better been sc.atlnized by the Banking and Currency, Agriculture, and Ways and Means, Committees. If this had been done. I am certain that we would have eventually had a more operative measure. Seemingly, speed of enactment of this bill took precedence over the proper deliberation that would have perhaps brought about some improvements in the present programs affecting our less fortunate citizens. The distinguished gentleman who is scheduled to head this new agency seemed to be working against a most early deadline. I have been told that many of his friends felt that his leadership for this legislation would make him the most popular political fig. ure in the Nation. Proof that such has not been the case was recently given to us. Great numbers of people did not rally behind him as a champion in the battle against poverty. Many proponents of this bill brought suggested improvements to cur attention. Some mayors of large cities have antipoverty program* now in operation. They arc receiving large fund* from the Federal Government toward their costs. Naturally they are looking to this proposed bill for additional funds. I agree with these local officials In their desire for, and I quote from the words of one of them, "a considered and concerted attack on poverty." I can but believe that you must agree that the legislation before u* hat not had the due consideration that tuch an omnibus bill should have. The mere definition of poverty should be made.

Our prinury concern is for the less fortunate citizens. This has been true of this Uth Congress as it was true of the 1st Congrea and of ali of the intermedlate Congresses. I reiterate thes truths solely because some stories and speeches mjsht_have led people"to believe that we/the ejected rep-" resentativcs of the people, had no concern for those who were impoverished. These stories must certainly have given the citizens of foreign countries a false impression of our Congress. We all know the full meaning of povertysome of us from first-hand experienceothers from working for welfare measures. From 14 years of service in this House. I know that our concern transcends party lines. Many times, I have worked with members of the opposite political party so as to bring a constructive measure to this floor. This has been particularly true when that measure affected the welfare of the poor. The treat majority of the Members of this House have set aside politics when problems affecting the needy arose. If I were but to describe the programs budgeted for fiscal 1065 that combat poverty. It would consume more time than is allotted for the entire debate on this measure. I would Just remind you that there arc 51 such programs that we have financed. These programs are aimed directly at aiding those in straightened circumstances. The amount involved here Is $8.7 billion. Mot included in this are such recently passed measures as the raise In octal security payments and the tax cut. These affect others than the poor. These funds arc administered by the following Federal departments and agencies: The office of the President; the Agriculture Department,; the Commerce Department: the Health, Education, and Welfare Department; the Interior Department; the Labor Department; the Housing and Home Finance Agency; and the Small Business Administration. They have experience in the handling of these specialized problems. There are those who criticize their administration of reccntly passed legislation afTccting the training and retraining of the uncraployed. These critics would take the administration out of their hands. This Congress hti_ amended Die Manpower Training Act to permit basic education to become pnrt of the job training program. We realize that the battle against poverty should be continuous. Congress has voted for every cojistructlve measure that has rotated toward any solution to the many phases of the problem. Now we arc asked to support an omnibus measure under the direction of a tingle director The Inference can only be that the put congressional approach of creating new programs and placing them in existing governmental agencies was in error. A careful analysis of this measure before us today will show an almost unbelievable amount of duplication of working programs. If. as is claimed, the present programs, arc not effective In combatting poverty, they should 'oo repealed or revise. I certainly would not be in favor of this
jority of those Americans who how lire in poverty Were given half a chance, they could end yes they would pull themselves up by their economic bootstraps. Americans have traditionally had compassion, grcn' compassion, for those in.less.fprtunn.tftcircumstancca-thaa-thent selves. Our history is just full of stories of the pioneers on the frontier helping a new family build their first house or helping those who were victims of flre. Indians, drought or the many other certainties that comprised life in those days. Ours has traditionally been a land of great opportunity with virgin forest eagerly awaiting the lumbermen, with virgin soil responding to the fanners' steel plow and myriads of business opportunities in the cities that formed the r.cart of an economy growing by leaps and bounds. Today the buzz saw has replaced the ax and the electronic drill the miners' pick. Today the tractor has replaced the steel plow and one combine reaps a harvest that once took a thousand men to sow. Small business opportunities have given way to the growth of great corporations that dominate the marketplace. With all these changes has come the standard of living for the average American that is unparalleled in history. With these changes have come machines that have swept the assembly line clear of the unskilled. Machines that have moved from farm to factory to offices replacing many skilled workers in their wake. Perhaps most important of *l are the changes demanded In our 'level of educationno longer can an unskilled, unschooled nun rise to the top. Today's society demand! the best well-trained minds we can muster. Just what are we doing here in America today to provide new jobs to replace the old, to provide new skills to replace the old and to provide a better education and economic opportunity for all? We arc doing far too little and the illl before us today offers us an opportunity to redress a neglect of the p*si Yes, we have given Americans subsistence welfare aid to keep them alive, but we must help them get off the welfare rolls. Yeswe have created jobsthousands of jobsbut they log behind our growing labor force. Yes. we have gotten better schools and better teachers, but the child of poverty docs not need simply better schoolshe needs the best schools to offsot the other experiences in his dally life. It Is time that we dropped our paternalistic attitude by saying these people arc getting welfare and that is all that they need. We need to help them break the welfare cycle and the cycle of dependency that encircles them. Time after time in city after city, it has been shown that the health, education, and welfare services that \vc have been.ovidlng to the poor arc not adequate to the task of remedying their plight. Title II of the bill seeks to remedy this situation and reach these people In a positive way. The missing job opportunities that our forebears found so plentiful in America will be provided both by programs in title I of the bill, by expanding small
lation with a variety of human virtues and human weaknesses. But because we cannot help al), should we neglect all? Our experience has demonstrated that for every new program of opportunity, there has been a wealth of positive reiisouse that justified -Its inception and far outweighed the failures and abuses. We suggest that is the reasonable expectation from this legislatioa It has been said that the sections of this legislation arc 1934 answers to 1064 problems. I would remind all that in 1900 we bought a ticket on a coach which provided transportation in the westin a stagecoach drawn by four. horses. In 1904, we t^t ticket on a coach which is the rear section of a jet propelled aircraft that crosses the United States in 4 hours.

Mr. Chairman, the programs listed above are well established, and their administration Is in the hands of recognized Government agencies, manned by experienced personnel. If these programs need tp_bc expanded or modified, their admirifsraUon should; f n our opinion, continue to vest In established Government agencies. I sec serious disadvantages In placing fragmentary duplications of these programs In the hands of a new and untlrcd agency, headed by a new and untried poverty czar. The duplication of function and administrative dispersal contemplated by the pending legislation invites administrative chtUM and confusion which may well Imperil the effective administration of existing programs. There Is no justificationeconomic, organizational, or administrativefor the creation of any such supcragency. (Mr. JENSEN asked end was given permission to revise and extend his remarks.)

Mr. Chairman, there has been a great deal of technical discussion on tills bill, but too little time, has been apcnt on the more human problems this measure would attempt to meet. I mention but two: breaking the vicious cycle of poverty and building natural resources for future generations. Most of us. in our own areas, arc familiar with the cycle of poverty. We have notedand the statistics bear It outthat many who arc in the poverty class not only tend to remain there but raise children who in turn tend to remain members of thi* group. To use a social worker's phrase, the "hard-core" welfare cases ore an example of this transmission of poverty from generation to generation. Of course we could brush the matter aside- and say poverty is a person's own fault, or we could approach the ridiculous and order people to stop being poor. Outside of a few fringe elements In our political spectrum, these Ideas have little appeal. Most of us realize Umt falling to share In the abundant opportunities of our abundant society rests both on iwrsonnl motivation and the tanclcd web of circumstance. This bill would attempt to cure both. It docs little pood to toll the unwed mother of half n dozen children who lives on welfare payments, and any other source of funds available that she should stop and Improve herself and her family, wl,cn she hat neither the skill, the motivation, or U > opportunity to do so. It does little Gixxt to tell the young boy of that family Umt he should stay nut of pool halls, that he should RO back to school, that he should take up a useful Ufa elsewhere, when all lie knows of society and comradeship is In that pool hall.

Th* net lots of Job* ot 21.174 represent* the number of potential Jobs lost as a result of the deterioration of our foreign trade balance* In the product* of th* labor-intensive Industrie* included in the three group*. In addition to the direct las* of these production workers, the nonproductlon worker* in the same Industrie* and the. supporting ana service Industry worker* called Into action would have totaled 19.703 (based on 64 supporting workers per 100 production Job* as estimated by ARA) for a gross Job loss of 34*37. The 48 Industries studied are a representattre sampling of 1S2 industries, all of which meet 4 or S of thr Commerce Department tent* for high employment potential ot Impoverished, low-tklll workers. The sample group represents 30 percent ot the IU Industries, rroject.'ng the Job loss experience ot the sample giuup to the larger Croup reveals that the total loss of Job potential due to foreign t"de In Inbor-lntenMv* Industries was HMco durlnc the S-yeor period 1958 to 1962. The total ot Joos exported reaches the stagRfrlng magnitude ot over It time* the number of Job* (10.000, which the administration proposed -rcatlnp through a *3s million Incentive loan fund to the same type* of Industries as were Adversely affected by our foreign trade Imbalance.
sidy programs or Induitry Investment spending can create them. It also becomes clear that our foreign economic policy Is unresponsive to th* realities of the employment needs of the Nation's impoverished, unemployed worker. if /i successful attack on poverty and un; employment Is to be mounted in the United States, some action must be taken to stem the flow of jobs from this country to th* relatively low-wage countries competing with our domestic blue-collar industries. A logical nrst step Is action by President Johnson to reserve the product categories of these labor-intensive Industries from further tariff reductions In the trade agreement negotiations now under way In Geneva. This would rule out the proposed SO percent acrosA-the-board reduction in U.S. duties on the product* of foreign Industrie* competing in our domestic market* with our! own Industries, it would not reverse th* outflow of job* from our shore*, but it would at least Prevent acceleration of thl* trend. A neoMsary second step to trlnf back to thl* country the jobs lost sine* IMS to foreign Industrie* is action to limit import* of the product* of these blue-collar IcdiMtries. This could be achieved by llmltUg iroch imports to aa amount 35J percent abov* tb* IBM level of such imports, thus restoring to domestic industry groups th* output potential lost to foreign producer* since that time. The reduction of import* required would be $302.7 million, equivalent to only 93 percent of the Increase in Import* in alt manufacturing between ItM and 1M2. Congressional action i* needed to set import celling* becuus* the administration nay take such action'only when It find* an Industry or group of Industrie* ha* suffered serious Injury as a result of unfavorable trad* condition*. In tb* case of til* Induetrlt* cited la this study, no such finding I* possible since, a* a group, they are enjoying relatively good fiscal health while the army of unemployed in the Mue-eoller field I* growing year by year M producer* In otb*r land* Increase their sale* la th* tTJ. market at a more rapid rate than th* Nation'* own Industrie*.
