The PRESIDING OFFICER (Mr. GOLDWATER in the chair) laid before the Senate the following message from the President of the United States, which was read and referred to the Committee on Finance: To the Congress of the United States:

In my message to the Congress on the state of the Union, I pointed out that there is urgent need for making our social-security programs more effective.

I stated that the provisions of the oldage and survivor's insurance law should cover millions of our citizens who thus far have been excluded from participation in the social-security program.

Retirement systems, by which individuals contribute to their own security according to their own respective abilities, have become an essential part of our economic and social life. These systems are but a reflection of the American heritage of sturdy self-reliance which has made our country strong and kept it free; the self-reliance without which we would have had no Pilgrim Fathers, no hardship-defying pioneers, and no eagerness today to push to ever-widening horizons in every aspect of our national life.

The social-security program furnishes, on a national scale, the oppore

an opportunity and a definite plan. I commend it to the Congress for its consideration.

engaged in the transmission or sale of electric energy to foreign countries;

S. 1516, An act for the relief of Akemi Terada;

S. 1704. An act for the relief of Christina Pantelis Triantafilu;

S. 2104. An act to authorize the payment of compensation to Clarence A. Beutel, formerly Deputy Administrator of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation, for the period from September 10, 1952, through June 1, 1953;

S. 2220, An act to amend the mineral leasing laws with respect to their application in the case of pipelines passing through the public domain;

S. 2383. An act granting the consent of Congress to a compact between the State of New Jersey and the State of New York known as the Waterfront Commission Compact, and for other purposes;

S. 2491. An act to authorize certain construction at military and naval installations, and for the Alaska communication system, and for other purposes; and

S. J. Res. 98. Joint resolution authorizing and directing the Secretary of the Interior to liquidate the Puerto Rico Reconstruction Administration.

The Senate took a recess until 10 o'clock a. m. on Monday next.

tunity for our citizens, through that same self-reliance, to build the foundation for their security. We are resolved to extend that opportunity to millions of our citizens who heretofore have been unable to avail themselves of it.

The Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, with the counsel and assistance of 12 outstanding consultants, has been carefully studying the difficult technical and administrative aspects of this effort.

The Secretary of that Department has now recommended the specific additional groups which, in the judgment of the Department and its consultants, should be covered under this program. The Secretary has also recommended the means by which these additional groups can be brought into the system most equitably, with full consideration for the new groups as well as those who have heretofore contributed to the insurance system. The Secretary's recommendations would effectively carry out the objectives that I expressed in my message to the Congress on the state of the Union and I am pleased to transmit them to the Congress for its consideration.

Under the attached plan, approximately 1012 million individuals would be offered social-security protection for the first time. About 612 million of these would be brought into the system; the remaining 4 million would be eligible for coverage under voluntary group arrangements. New groups to be covered would include self-employed farmers; many more farm workers and domestic workers than are now covered; doctors, dentists, lawyers, architects, accountants, and other professional people; members of many State and local retirement systems on a voluntary group basis; clergymen on a voluntary group basis, and several other smaller groups.

As the Committee on Ways and Means of the House of Representatives proceeds with its studies to improve the Social Security Act, I strongly commend to it this plan for the extension of coverage to most of the major groups not now covered by any social-insurance or public-retirement system. This is a specific plan for a specific purpose—the extension of coverage. Other important improvements in the Social Security Act are now under study and will be the subject of further recommendations.

There are two points about these proposals which I cannot stress too strongly. One is my belief that they would add immeasurably to the peace of mind and security of the individual citizens who would be covered for the first time under this plan; the second is my belief that they would add greatly to the national sense of domestic security. The systematic practice of setting aside funds during the productive years to build the assurance of basic retirement benefits when the productive years are over-or to one's survivors in the event of death-is important to the strength of our traditions and our economy. We must not only preserve this systematic practice, but extend it at every desiıable opportunity. We now have both such
