President Annual 4
Message to Congrees
SUBJECTS CHIEFLY TOUCHED
UPON ARE COST OF LIVING
AND LABOR UNREST.
MESSAGE LATER TREATY
fler.ju3tment of Tariff Systim If
Accessary; Recognition and Relief
of Soldiers cf World War.
Y.'-isUington. C cncral rctov.wz-T. di
tions on legislation to combat the
cost of living, labor unrest, radical
ism and readjustment of nation to
peace time basis were the features
of President Wilson's annual mes
sage to congress.
The peace treaty, the President told
congress, will be discussed ia a sep
arate message later, as will the rail
For the second time only, since
the President established the practice:
of addressing congress in p.ir.oa, his i
message was read by the clerks, j
"The establishment of the principles !
regarding labor, iaid down in the cov
enant of the league of natims " said
the message, "off ts us the w.iy to in
. dustrial peace and conciliation. No
other road lies open to us. Gov
ernments muat reccgnize the right of
men to bargain collectively for hu
maae objects. Labor must no
longer be treated as a commodity."
"The right of Individuals to strike is
inviolable," continued the message,
"and ought not to be interferred with
by any process of government, but
there Is a predominant right and that
Is the right of the government to pro
tect all of its people and to assert its
power and majesty against the chal-
lenge of any class."
The President was referring to the
government's recent injunction against
the coal strike.
The message closed with a pointed,
reference to radicalism and red doc
trines, and referred to "Russia today
with it-, blood and terror" as a "pain
ful o' r'ret lesson of the power of mi
nor!! I ie
"Til' re are thoso In this country,"
s iiii iae message, "who threaten direct
action to force their will upon a ma
jority. u makes little difference
wiiat minority it is; whether capitil
or labor, or any other class; no sort
of privilege will ever be permitted to
dominate this country."
Orderly processes, the message de
clared, were the only ones by whirh
relief and reform should be obtained.
"Those who would propose any
oilier method of reform are enem e;
of this country," the message said.
"Let them bewnre who hike tho
Khorter road of disorder and revolu
tion." Tbo text of the President's message
To the Senate and lhiusn of Represen
tatives: I sincerely regret that I cannot be
present at the opening of this session
of the congress. I am thus prevented
from presenting in as direct a way as
could wish the many questions thut
are pressing for solution at this time.
Happily, t have had the advantage of
Ihe advica of the heads of the several
executive departments, who have kept
in close touch with affairs In their de
tail and whose thoughtful recommen
dation I earnestly second.
In the matter of the railroads and
the readjustment of their affairs grow
ing out of federal control, I shall take i
the liberty at a later date of address
ing you. v, I
I hope that congress will bring to a ,
conelnalon at this session legislation
u m . . . ,, . . .
budget system. That there should be
, , ,. ... ,
one single author Ity responsible for
.. . , ,ii i .. .
the making of all appropriations and
... , ., . , . . .
that .ppropriat oni .hould be mad.
related to the nation's Income, there
can be no doubt I believe the bur
den, of preparing the budget- must, m
the nature of the case, if the work Is
to be properly done and responsibil
ity concentrated Instead of divided,
rst apoa the executive. The budget
o prepared should be submitted to
4 approved pr amended by a in
- le committee of each bouse of con
tress, and no tingle appropriation
should be made by the congress, ex
cept such a may have been Incluled
la the budget prepared by the execu
tive or added by h partlcalar oom
mlltee of congress charged with the
budget legislation. , ' '
Another aad aot Uu Importaat aa
pact ot the problem ta the ascertain
. , neat of the economy and efficiency
' with which laa mottafs appropriated
are etpeaded. Under tilatlag law the
only audit la for the purpoae of aacer
taining whether expenditures have
been lawfully made under the apnrv
priations. No one is authorized or
quipped to ascertain whether the
money has been spent wisely, eco
nomically and effectively. The au
ditors should be highly trained offi
cials with permanent tenure in the
treasury department, free from obli
gations to or motives of consideration
tor this or subsequent adminlstratloL
and ;a'. jrized and empowered to ei
nnvm- Into find make report upon the
methids employed and the results oh
t lined by the executive -lepirtm'Tits
of, the government. Tieir reports
should be made to the congress and
to the secretary of the treasury.
1 trust that the congress will give its
imnied.ate consideration to the prob
lem of future taxation. Simplification
of the income and profits taxes has be
come an immediate necessity. These
taxes performed indispensable service
during the war. They must, however,
be simplified, not only to save the tax
payer inconvenience and expense, but
in order that his liability may be mado
certain and definite,
with reference to the details of the
revenue, law, the secretary of tho
treasury and the commissioner of in
ternal revenue will lay before you far
your consideration certain amend
ments necessary or desirable in con
nection with the administration of the
law recommendations which have my
approval and support. It is of the ut
most importance that in dealing wit'i
this matter the present law should
not be disturbed so fac as regards
taxes for the calendar year 1920, pay
able in the calendar year 1921. The
congress might well consider whethei
the higher rates of income and profits
.can in peace times be effectively pro
ductive ot revenue and whether they
ot' on the contrary, be destruc-
tive of waste and inefficiency. There
is a point at which in peace times,
high rates of Income and profit taxen
discourage energy, remove the Incen
tive to new - enterprises, encoure
extravagant expenditures and rodi-'c
industrial stagnation with cansj ivs it
unemployment and other a!!a.u'.a t
The problem is n it an eL.'sy r.-.e. A

value of her pre-war favorable balan

ca's exports have been greatly stimu
lated, and Increased prices have in
creased their value. On the other
hand, sho bas purchased a large pro
portion of the American securities
previously held abroad, loaned some
$9,000,000,000 to foreign governments,
and has built her own ships. Our fa
vorable balance of trade has thus
been greatly Increased, Europe has
been deprived of the means for meet
ing it, heretofore existing. Europe
can only have three ways of meeting
the favorable balance of trade In
peace times: By Imports Into tola
country of gold or of goods, or by es-
i tablishlng new credits. Europe Ib In

therefore, which would tend to pre
vent foreign countries from settling
for our exports by shipments of goods
Into this country could only have the
effect of preventing them from pay
ing for our exports from being made.
The productivity of the country great

outlet by exports to foreign countries,
and any measure taken to prevent Ira

force curtallnfnt of production, load

There are other matters of impor
tance upon which I urged action at
-the last session of congress which are
still pressing for solution. I am sure
it is not ne'ssary for me again to re
mind y;;u t'ut there is one immediate
and very pr icticable question resuit

ma'l'r ( f rcognit'on and relief to ou

this very action:
"We must see to it that cur re

practicable way to find the places foT
which they ate fitted in the daiiy work,
of the country. This can be done by
developing and maintaining upon an
flrlenuntA analA thn arimirahl? nr?am-
zation created by the department of
labor for placing men seeking work;
and H can also be done, in at least
one very great field, by creating new
opportunities for Individual enterprise.
The secretary of the interior has
pointed out the way by which re
turning soldiers ny be helped to
find and take up land in the hitherto
undeveloped reg ons of the country
which the federal government has al-
ready prepared or can readily prepare

During the war the farmer p 'rform
ed vital and willing service to the
nation. By materially increa: ing the
production of his land, he supplied
Amer.. and the allies with the In
creased amounts of food necessary to
keep their Immense armies In the
field. He indispensably helped to win
the war. But there Is now scarcely
less need of Increasing the production
In food and the necessaries of life. I
aik the congross to consider means ot
encouraging efforts along these lines.
The Importance of doing everything
possible to promote the production
along economical lines, to Improve
marketing and to make rural life more
attractive and healthful. Is obvious.
I would urge approval of the plans al
ready proposed to the congres by the
secretary of agriculture to secure the
essentIM facts required for the proper
study of this question, through tbe
proposed enlarged programs for farm
management studies and crop esti
mates. I would urge also the contin
uance of federal participation In the
building of good roads, under the
terms of existing laws and under tbe
direction of present agencies; tae need
of further action on the part of tbe
states and the federal government to
preserve and develop our forest re
sources, especially through tho prac
tice of better forestry methods oa pri
vate holdings and the extension of the
publicly owned forests; better support
for country schools and the aor

study along lines related to rural
problems; and fuller provision tor
sanitation in rural districts and the
building up of needed hojpit?l and t.-.e
medical facilities in these Localities.
Perhaps the way might be cleared
for many of these desirable reforms
a Iresh comprehensive survey
made of rural conditions by a confer-
ence composed of representatives of
farmers and of the agricultural
agencies responsible for leadership.
would call your attention to the
d condltion of nnl1t!(,fl
widespread condition of political rest-
" . our body politic. The
cansea m unrest, while various
and complicated, are superficial, rath-
er tDaa deep-seated. Broadly, they
arise om or are conneeted with the
failure on the part of our government
to arriTe speedily at a Just and per-
manent peace permitting return to
normal conditions, from the transfu- ,
ftAnl r ...... .
ul rauicai lueuries lrum seeui-
living and lastly, from t'?e mach'n-.v
tions cf pass'onate and malevolent
agitators. With the return t-i nij.iial
conditions, the unrest will rapidly lis
nppsar. In the meantime it does
much evil. It s-eems to me that in
denl'ng with this situation cons;re"8
s'Kiuld not he i'nnntient or drastic,
but should sRek rather to remove the
causes. It should endeavor to bri:ip
our country back speedily to a pence
basis, with ameliorated living condi
tions under the minimum of restric
tions upon personal liberty that is
consistent with our reconstruction
problems. And it should arm the fed
eral government with power to deal
in its criminal courts with those per
sons who, ,by violent methods would
abrogate our time-tested institutions.
