Abstract:

"In his first address to the United Nations General Assembly the U.S. Chief Executive cautions that 'the events and decisions of the next ten months may decide the fate of man for the next ten thousand years.' News of the day presents an in-depth analysis of the President's momentous appearance beofre the world organization. Mr. Kennedy solemnly challenges Russia to a 'peace race' and warns that unless men now quickly learn to control their weapons and their quarrels they may destroy themselves. He rejects the Russian demand for a three man body of Western Soviet block and netural representatives, each with a veto, to take Dag Hammarskjold's place at the head of the Secretariat. The President reports to the Assembly on two threats to peace causing deepest concern, in Southeast Asia and in Germany and Berlin. In a final declaration of determination, he says the United States has both 'the will and the weapons' to resist aggression in any area of the world"--Hearst synopsis sheet.
