' If we were to go only half-H'ay, or reduce our sights in the face of difficulty, it would be Jbetter not to go at all." Kennedy said the nation faces an ''extraordinary challenge to protect the jeopardized freedom of the world." "It is a contest of -will and purpose as well as force : and violence —a battle for minds and souls as well as lives and territory," Kennedy said in describing Communist efforts to seize and exploit the newly emerging nations. "And in that contest, we cannot stand aside." ".;. . This nation was barn of revolution and raised in freedom. And we do not intend to leave an open road to despotism:'! The message called for a sweeping . reorganization of : _ military combat power, an increase in the Marine Corps, and a build-up of the land and air weapons needed for brush fire wars and paramilt Sary .(guerrilla) operations. The President committed the nation to take "a clearly leading role in space achievement"—a blunt notice to the Soviet Union that this country intends to make a contest of the ra'ce to the mooa and planets. "For while we cannot guaran- tee'that we shall one day be first, we can guarantee thatrany failure to-share this effort will make us last," the President said. '•Space is open to us hove; and pur eagerness to 'share its meaning is not governed by the efforts of others. : ' •.''•""We go into'-v space because whatever : mankind must undertake, free men must fully share." Kennedy asked S679 million of new funds for space-exploration, including $531 million' for tbe moon project.. 7 He asked $535 .million of i foreisn aid funds, shared about il equally between .military.'.and eco- r nomic assistance.. 1 ." The. economic portion, 'SZ50 ;mil- 'ion. would go into a presidential contingency fund. • he. said, to be' used or.ty upon'. the President's finding .that a sudden and ^extraordinary drain on';.-.the .''regular."':., funds made necc-ssary the use of;' this emergency .rescirye; - - '.••-.-:, The need for such funds, he ' has been "illustrated;,-by recent events in.
