THfi OORSTOANA jjS^KTf ', JANUARY 7 ^ 1989." COLORFUL ASSEMBLY HEARD ROOSEVELT DEIMRMESSAGE HOUSE GALLERIES PACKED LONG BEFORE TIME FOR PRESIDENT TO APPEAR WASHINGTON, Jan. 4. »-(&) —President Roosevelt told an applauding congress today that, war signals abroad "directly challenge" the treasured institutions of this country. Legislators broke into Mr. Roosevelt's annual message time after time to register approval of his criticism of dictatorships. There was more handclapplng when the Chief Executive said the answer to threats from abroad Is a "strong and united nation." If applause was an indicator, the biggest difference In party opinion on the President's address developed over government spending. When Mr. Roosevelt said 'It did "not seem logical to mo" to out spending drastically there was scattered applause from democratic ranks. This quickly was topped in volume, plus cheers, by applause, which seemed to come chiefly from tho republican side, when the President said one school of thought favored an Immediate balance between Income and expenses. Tho president was accomp:-Ji- led on his trip to the capital by • family party Including his mother, Mrs. James Roosevelt, Br., his daughter-in-law, Mrs, James Roosevelt, Jr., and her daughter Sarah and his uncle, Frederick A. Delano. Bight cars made up tho Presidential motor caravan. The President wore an ordinary gray business suit, as he entered his closed machine for the drive down Pennsylvania Avonue. He wore no hat or overcoat. , Marvin H. Molntyro the President's secretary, rode with him. Members of the cabinet drove to the house chamber to hear the Chief Executive's 3,600 word message In other automobiles. The President arrived at the capital at 12:44 p. m. and immediately headed for the floor of the house. , The . house had convened promptly at noon but recessed eight minutes later to await- the arrival of the President, the senate and cabinet officers. . The senate recessed until 12=40 •wbftn it reconvened to march over to the house. As members milled about the floor prior to the President's arrival, Josophus Daniels, Ambassador to Mexico, took a seat In the speaker's reserved gallery. \Vlfo and Mother There.

The house applauded when Speaker Bankhead and Vlce'Pres- Jdent Garner appeared on the ros- trlum. Both stood erect, their hands folded behind them. Senators Mead (D-N) and Lucas (D-I11) who formerly served in the house, also received a round ot applause. - House Galleries Packed.

He had asked the last congress for reorganization legislation. His message was a signal for congress to buckle down to work fter a brief, jovial session yestor- ay that belled growing dlsagroa- •ncents over relief, presidential ap- olntments, and labor laws. , Wooden barricades wore set up the capital's marble corridors o keep the crowd of visitors in neck before the President's ar- Ival. Members of both houses were eset by constituents seeking tic- ots to the gallery, but even 1th all standing room filled only few hundred guests could be dmltted. Others had to content hemselvcs with a glimpse of tho ^resident and his party, includ- ng cabinet members. Defense Message. Even before he spoke, the Pres- dcnt disclosed he would send .a eparate message to congress next veck outlining In detail his plans or building up the nation's ,arm- d forces. Four major developments which avo occurred since-Mr. Roosevelt ourneyed to the Capitol a year go formed tho background of his address today. These are: 1. The Munich agreement be-i ween Germany, England, France' and Italy for settlement of the Czechoslovaklan crisis, This had a direct bearing on the President's decision to undertake a luge national defense program. 2. The republican gains In the November elections, which trengthened Mr. Roosevelt's opposition In congress and cncour- iged anti-administration democrats in their independence of White House leadership. 8. The accomplishment of most major new deal legislative alms n the 1938 congress, so that the administration's task now Is prl- narlly to preserve and improve existing agencies rather than to create new ones. 4. The reversal In • business trends. A year ago the recession was well underway; economists report now the trend Is upward, economic, conditions aa Impoving ;adually, and unemployment Is icing reduced Slightly. Out of these developments have sprung in part, at least, current :ongresflional Issues and admlnls- ;ratton policies. Since business is Improving, re- jef appropriations are expected :o be held below last years figure. Moreover, as a result of the' charges of political activity brought against the WPA yesterday by the senate campaign expenditures committee, substantial changes In WPA administrative methods are In prospect. Senators of both major parties agreed that restrictions on political activity not only by WPA officials but by all federal offlo- als would be enacted with Ut- :lc opposition. The report also Is expected to torm the basis of an inquiry Into ;he qualifications of Harry Hop- tins, former WPA administrator, ;o be secretary of commerce. Hopkins' confirmation by the senate Is forecast generally, however, as Is confirmation of Former Governor Frank Murphy of Michigan to bo attorney general. Battle Over Smith. A major senate battle appeared likely, though, over reappolntment of-Donald Wakefleld Smith to the National Labor Relations board. The American Federation of Labor .has contended Smith has favored the CIO in jurisdlctlonal disputes. Opposition senators claim suf- fllcont votes to defeat Smith's confirmation, and there have been reports the President might withdraw his nomination. Mr. Roosevelt indicated at his press conference yesterday, however, that only technical details were holding up submission of his name. While the senate was concerned with the relief and labor arguments, th'e .house ran into the controversial question of continuing the Dies committee on unAmeri- can activities. Chairman Dies (D-Tex) predicted that not more than 40 members would oppose his request to give the group $150,000 for a two-year Investigation. The committee submitted a report -yesterday contending vthat failure of the labor department to enforce the deportation laws accounted for a "large part" of the subversive activities In the United States. The report was followed by, an-, nouncement from Rep. Thomas' (R-NJ) that he would Introduce a resolution to impeach Secretary; Perkins, primarily , because she has not deported Harry Bridges. West Const CIp leader. Members of the democratic majority declared they.'easily could quash; such a resolution. Meanwhile the work .of organis- ing the senate and house for the complicated . legislative, procedure was getting underway. House committees may take on a more conservative tinge, a number of members predicted, as a result of the, establishment of a Executive laughter when he 'sal M» nee« * or <normn|sln outtve Branch °f< the gov *,,_ . .». _ .. PRESIDENT TELLS CONGRESS AMERICAN LIFE IS CHALLENGED JOINT SESSIOfToF CONGRESS TOLD WARS, ARMAMENTS, AGGRESSION THREATEN U. S. WASHINGTON, Jan. 4. — (JP) —President Roosevelt summoned the nation today to arm-economically, socially and with military force—to meet a world challenge of dictatorial aggression. Before both houses of congress, .he chief executive solemnly asserted: "A war which threatened to envelop the world has been averted; nit It has become Increasingly clear :hat peace is not assured." To meet the challenge, Mr. Roose. velt laid down a program of action, loth foreign and domestic,' for meeting tho troubles of the world "as one people." To achieve domestic solidarity, tho president urged continued efforts to bolster national income through federal spending; hinted at revision of the labor relations act by urging peace In labor's strife and between capital and labor; asked perfection or the farm program; suggested tax readjustments with possible small Increases; recommended the genera! polishing of new deal laws and added two new enactments, government reorganization and aid tor the railroads. Cheering lustily when the president entered, senators, representatives and cabinet officers settled Into silence for the start of his address. As he moved in to. the fighting passages of tho message, his voice rising in dramatic pitch, the lawmaker loud ly applauded.

Simultaneously, he suggested the possibility of some forceful non military action against ajggresso nations and revision of the presen neutrality law. While he did not specifically mention an economic boycott o 'moral quarantine," the preslden said: "Tnere are many methods short of war, but stronger and mor effective than mere words, of bring Ing home to aggressor government the aggregate sentiments of ou own people. . "At the very least, we can am should avoid any action, or an. lack" of action, which will encour ago, assist or build up an aggres sor.

But the president referre to "events In Europe" wher Czechoslovakia was dlsmembere at Germany's Insistence, "in Africa where Italy conquered Ethiopia an "In Asia" where Japan has invade China. "All about us rage undeclare wars—military and economic." Mr. Roosevelt said. "All about us grow more deadly armaments—military and economic.

"Dictatorship," he declared, "Involves costs which the American people will never pay." Mr. Roosevelt enumerated as such costs, spiritual values, free speech, freedom of religion, confiscation of capital, concentration camps, 'the cost of having our children brought up not as free and dignified human beings, but as pawns molded and enslaved by a machine." , Tho presidents said "we can and should avoid any action or any ack of action which will encourage, assist or build up an aggressor," adding: v "We have learned that when we deliberately try to legislate neutrality, our neutrality laws may operate unevenly and unfairly— may actually give aid to an aggressor and deny It to the victim.

For "adequate defense"— ; and the president said "the deadline of danger from within and without Is not within our control"—Mr. Roosevelt advocated armed forces and defense sufficient "to ward off sudden attack," and an organization of key facilities for prompt expansion. He reserved details of this defense program for a later message next week, noting that recent world events had taught anew ii "the_ old, old lesson " ' "" tack Is m-,, _. . assurance of an ever-ready defense," But the president stressed also a third element needed, "a strong and united nation." • "In meeting the troubles of the world we must meet them as one people," he said. • • * "Our nation's program of social and economic reform is therefore a part of defense as basic as armaments thorn- selves." For this program, Mr. Roosevelt proposed essentially only two new enactments, reorganization of the government departments for greater efficiency and aid for the railroads and other transportation problems.

WASHINGTON, ~Jan. 4.— m— Senator Bailey (D1NC) promised today an attack on one of the year's expenses," the chief executive said; "We have learned that It Is unsafe . to make abrupt reductions at* any time In our net expenditure program." Should congress, he said, side with the point.of view that spending should be balanced with the government's income, "it will logically have to reduce the present functions of government by one- third." "The congress will have to accept the responsibility for such reduction; and the congress will have to determine which activities are to be reduced." The address, broadcast by radio to every state • In the union and around the world in seven Ian- ruages, hinted at possible measures against aggressors.
