State of Union Message Rundown WASHINGTON (OPI) Highlights of President Kennedy's State of the Union message: Taxes A tax cut is the most urgent task confronting Congress. He proposed a net reduction of $10 billion over three years, starting with a $6 billion slash in personal and corporate rates this year. The proposed reduction, he said, would help create two miHioa new jobs and increase the purchasing power of American families and business enterprises. Economy The recession is behind us. America has enjoyed 22 months of uninterrupted economic recovery.

But recovery is not enough. If we are to prevail in the long run, we must expand the long-run strength of our economy. We must move along the path to a higher rate of growth and full employment. A 35 hour work week would be a restrictive measure that could increase hourly labor costs by as much as 14 per cent and start a new wage-price spiral of inflation. World Steady progress is being made in building a world of order.

West Berlin remains free and secure. A settlement has been reached in Laos. The spearpoint of aggression has been blunted in Viet Nam. The end of agony may be Carrie Woods Funeral services were held last Tuesday for Mrs. Carrie Woods, 87, at the Jacoby-Wise funeral home, Bunker Hill.

A deadly threat has been removed from Cuba, though danger continues. Budget He will submit a fiscal 1964 budget calling for rises in defense, space and interest charges, but holding expenditures for all oilier purposes below this year's level Tnij win require economies in government personnel and abandonment of certain federal installations and projects.

Peace Corps The overseas success of the Peace Corps suggests the merit of a similar corps serving U.S. community needs. It could work in mental hospitals, on Indian reservations, in centers for the aged or young delinquents, and in schools for the illiterate or the handicapped. Medical Care Working men and women--instead of being forced to beg for help from public charity once they are old and ill--should start contributing now to their own retirement health program through the Social Security system. Civil Rights The right to competent counsel must be assured to every man accused of crime in a court, regardless of his means.

The right to vote must not be denied to any citizen on grounds of race or color. Transportation Local mass transit is as essential a community service as hospitals and highways. If local transit is to survive and relieve the congestion in cities, it needs federal stimulation and assistance. Stockpile The government is in the stockpile and storage business to the tune of more than $16 billion. It must continue to support farm income but should not pile more farm surpluses on top of the $7.5 billion already owned.

The $8.5 jillion stockpile of strategic ma is much more than need ed and the government should be empowered to dispose of the excess in ways that win not disrupt the market. Complacency In the past months, we have reaffirmed the scientific and mill tary superiority of freedom. We have doubled our efforts in space, to assure us of being first in the future. But complacency or self- congratulation can imperil our security as much as the weapons 01 tyranny. A moment of pause is not a promise of peace Dangerous problems remain from Cuba to the South China Sea.

Europe Far from resenting the new Europe, we regard her as a wel come partner, not a rival The first task of the' alliance remains the common defense. Ways mus be found of increasing the role of NATO partners in planning manning and directing a truly multilateral nuclear force within an increasingly intimate alliance The next most pressing concern is common economic goals trade and growth. The Unitec States intends to encourage trade expansion on both sides of the Atlantic and around the world. The Alliance for Progress is stimulating America's good neigh bors to more self-help and self- reform. But it can succeed only as the Latin American nations themselves devote their best effort to fulfilling its goals.

The story is the same in Africa, the Middle East, Asia Wherever nations are willing to help them selves, we stand ready to help them build new bulwarks of freedom. Communist Bloc Hope over the Sino-Soviet differences must be tempered with caution. Marx is proven wrong once again: For it is the closed Communist societies, not the free and open societies, which carry within themselves the seeds of internal disintegration. The wall of shame dividing Berlin is a symbol of Communist failure. Peace He would counsel caution.

He foresees no spectacular reversal in Communist methods or goals But if the Soviet Union can be persuaded to walk the path oi peace, then let her know that al free nations will journey with her. But until that choice is made, the free peoples must keep their arms nearby. The winds of change appear to be blowing more strongly than ever, in the world of communism as well as our own. We still wel come those winds of change am we have every reason to believe that our tide is running strong.

Kennedy (Continued from Page 1) per cent rate on corporate earnings would be cut back to the pre- korean war level of 47 per cent In setting up new individual rates, the President splitting the tax bracket which now ers the first $2,000 of taxable income. His plan would provide a 14 per cent tax rate for the first 81,000. The second $1,000 would be taxed at a slightly higher rate but still below present evels.

This formula would mean tax avings ranging from 30 per cent or persons with very small taxable incomes to less than 20 per ent for those in other income But it was impossible to pell out dollars and cents savings pending more details on the plan. A Temporary Deficit Kennedy conceded his proposal would increase the federal deficii --but insisted this would be onl' emporary. He said the added impetus given the economy by big consumer and business spend- ttg ultimately would result ir more federal income despite low er tax rates. The President said in this con nection that his new fiscal 1964 Midget, which goes to Congress Thursday, will be cut below his year's level except for de ense, space sod interest on the national debt. All of these three will be higher nexi Kennedy underscored his deter mination to make tax reduction the No.

He promised to cover hem in later messages. He did call for establishment jf a youth organization patterned after the overseas Peace Corps help community needs at home. He suggested that mem- jers could be used in mental hospitals, on Indian reservations and at training centers for the aged ind young delinquents. Discuss Foreign In discussing world affairs, the chief executive said the cold war truggle had calmed in the wake of the Cuban missile crisis.

He also noted the split between Moscow and Peking and the eye-opening effect on neutral nations of Red China's "arrogant invasion of India." But he foresaw "no spectacular reversal in Communist methods o- goals." Neither did he mention any hope for early settlements in such world trouble spots as West Berlin or South Viet Nam. "A moment of pause is not a promise of peace," Kennedy said. "Dangerous problems remain from Cuba to the South China Sea. The world's prognosis pre scribes not a year's vacation, but a year of obligation and oppor tunity." Kennedy recognized that econ omy advocates in Congress soon would start shooting at his fiscal plans. He tried to counter some of their volleys in advance.

It wa in this connection that he promised to cut total spending excep' for defense, space and fixed in terest By holding down the budgetary cost of existing programs to keep within the limitations I have set," the President said, "it is both possible and imperative to adopt other new measures that we cannot afford to postpone." These measures were grouped under four broad headings: Youth: Aid to erucation, and youth retraining as well as the domestic peace corps i community needs. Health: His medical care program was described in new, more general terms. But the goal seemed unchanged.
