Address, Testimonial Dinner for Lieutenant Governor Patrick J. Lucey of Wisconsin

August 15, 1965



The challenges and the dreams touch every man and woman and child in America—and in the world. There is challenge in automation, which could mean widespread permanent unemployment in this country—and there is hope that our increasing productivity can make life immeasurably richer both here and abroad. There is a challenge in the decay and obsolescence of many of our great cities—and there is a dream of the cities rebuilt, better and more human than ever before. There is challenge on our farms, where industrialization has led to great surplus and fewer farmers—and there is a dream of America using all the capacity of its farmers to feed millions of poor people all over the world.
