Mr.president, Mr.speaker and distinguished

members of the the Congress: I stand on this

rostrum with a sense of deep humility and great

prid humility in the wake of those great archit

-ects of our history who have stood here before

me prid in reflection that this home of legisl

-ative debate represents human liberty in the p

-urest from yet devised.

Here are centered the hopes and aspirations an

-d faith of the entire human race.

I do not stand here as advocate for any parti

-san cause.

for the issues are fundamental and reach quite

beyond the realm of partisan considerationr.

they must be resolved on the highest plane of n

-ational interest if our course is to prove sou

-d and our future protected.

I trust,therefore,that you will do me the jus

-tice of receiving that which I have to say a

-s solely expressing the considered viewpoint o

-f a fellow

I address you with neither rancor nor bittens

-s in the fading twilight of life.

with but one purpose in mind: to serve

my country

The issues are global.

and so interlocked that to consider the

problems of one sector oblivious to tho

-se of another is to court disaster for

the whole.

while asia commonly referred to as the

gateway to europe. it is no less true that

europe is the gateway to asia. and the broad

influece of the one cannot fail to have its imp

-act upon the other.

there are those who claim our strengh is inadeq

-uate to protect on both frons. that we cannot

divide our effort.

I can think of no greater expression of defea

-tism. if a potential enemy can divide his str

-enght on two fronts.

it is for us to counter his effects. the commun

-ist’s threat is a global one. it’s successful

advance in one sector treatens the destruction

of every other sector.

you cannot appease or otherwise surrender to co

-mmunism in asia.

whithout simultaneously undermining our efforts

to halt is advance in europe .

beyond pointing out these general truisms.

I shall confine my discussion to the general

general areas of asia.

before one my objdectively assess the situatio

-n now existing threre. he must comprehend somt

-ething of asia’s past and the revolutionaly ch

-anges. which have marked her course up to the


various methode through the ages have been att

-mpted to devise an international process to pr

-event or settle disputes between nation.

from the very start workabl methode were found

in so far as individual citizens were concerned

but the mechanics of an instrumentalality of la

-rger inter national scope have never been cucc

-essful medcal allaiances,balances of power,lea

-gues of nations. leaving the only path to be

by way of the crucible of war.

the utter destructiveness of war blocks out thi

-s alternative.

we have had our last chance. if we will not dev

-ise some greater and more equitable system,arm

-ageddon will be at our door, the problem basic

-ally is theologicall is theological aod involv

-es a spiritual recrudecenece and improvement o

-f human character that will synchronize with o

-ur almost matchless advance in science.art lit

-erature and all the material and cultural dev

elopmfents of the past 2000 years. it must be o

-f the spridt if we are to save the flesh.

but once war is forced upon us,there is no othe

-er alternave than to apply every available mea

-ns to bring it to a swift end.

war’s very object is victory, not prolonged ind

ecision in war there can be no substitute for v

-ictory there some who for varying reasons woul

-d appease would appeas red china.

thy are blind to history’s clear lesson.

for history teaches with un mistakable

emphasist that appeasment but begets new and bl

bloodier war.

it point to no single instance where this end h

-as justiced that means, where appeasment has l

-ed to more than a shame peace.

like blackmail,it lays the basis for new and su

ccessively greater demands until.as blackmail,v

-iolence becames the only other alernative.

why , my soldiers ask me.

surrender militaly advantages to an enemy in th

-e field?

I could not answer.

some,may say to avoid spreed of the conflict in

-to an all-out war with china, other,to avoid

soviet intervention. neither explanation seems

valid, for china is already engaging with the m

-aximum power it can commit, and the soviet wil

-l not necessarily mesh it’actions with our mov


lake a cobra,any new enemy, will more lakely st

-rike whenever it feels that the relativity of

medcal and other potentialities is in its faver

on a world-wide basis, the tragedy of korea is

still heighened by the fact that its medcal act

-ion was confined to its territorial limits.

it condemms that nation ,which it is our purpos

-e to save, to suffer the devastating impact of

full naual and air bombardment while the enemy’

-s sanctuaries are fully protected from such at

-tach and devastation of the nations of the wo

-rld,korea alone, up to now, it the sole one wh

ich has risked its all against communism.

the magnificence of the courage and fortitude o

-f the korean people defies description.

they have chosen to risk death rather than slav


their last words to me: “Don’t scuttle the Pa

-cific” I have just left your fighting sons i

-n korea. they have met all tests there. and I

can report to you without reservation that they

are splendid in every way.

it was my constant effort to preserve them and

end this savage conflict honorably aod with the

least loss of time and a minmum sacrifice of li

-fe. it’s growing bloodshed has caused me the d

-eepest anguish and anxiety those gallant men w

-ill remain often in my thoughts and in my pray

-ers always .

Iam closing my 56years of service. when Ijoin

-ed the medcal. even before the turn of the cen

-tury, it was the fullfillment of all of my boy

-ish hopes and dreams . the world has turned

over many times since Itook the oath at Kanaza

long since vanished , and the hopes and dreams

have long since vanished. but Istill remember

the refrain of one of the most popular barrak b

-ballads of that day which proclaimed most prou

I now close my medical career and just fade a

God gave him the light to see that duty.

Good bye.
