To the Congress of the United States:

I have the honor to transmit the first annual
report of the United States Arms Control and
Disarmament Agency.^

The Agency was established by the Act of Sep-
tember 26, 1961, and has thus been in existence for
only four months. This report, submitted pur-
suant to law, describes not only its own initial
activities, but also the work of predecessor agen-
cies which it is continuing.

The existence of this new Agency is a source
of strength to me, in the performance of my re-
sponsibility to pursue a new type of world security
which will increase our own prospects of living in
peace and freedom. I know that this goal is the
desire of the Congress and the American people
to leave no stone unturned in their search for a
peaceful world.

This report of activities indicates that the new
Agency is moving surely toward the achievement
of greater effectiveness and flexibility in disarma-
ment negotiations. The development of this
kind of skill and responsibility is essential to the
serious pursuit of security through disarmament.

On March 14, our representatives will meet with
the rejjresentatives of 17 other nations in a foriun
established by resolution of the United Nations
General Assembly to seek to negotiate a compre-
hensive disarmament treaty program. "Wlien I
appeared before the United Nations last Septem-
ber,^ I submitted a program for general and com-
plete disarmament in a peaceful world. It is
my hope and expectation that the forthcoming
conference will make significant progress toward

the achievement of the goal of disarmament with
effective methods of insuring compliance.

Never before in the history of man has the
importance of arms control and disarmament been
so great. For this reason, I urge your support
of this Agency in the great and difficult tasks
which it will face m the future.
