Protocol to U.S.-Mexico Radio
Agreement Enters Into Force

Press release 3 dated January 12

On January 12, Secretary of State Rusk
and the Mexican Ambassador, Hugo B.
Margain, exchanged the instruments of rati-
fication of the protocol between the United
States and Mexico signed at Mexico City on
April 13, 1966, amending the agreement of
January 29, 1957, concerning radio broad-
casting in the standard broadcast band. The
protocol was brought into force by the ex-
change of instruments of ratification.

The 1957 agreement entered into force on
June 9, 1961, effective for 5 years. It expired
by its own terms on June 9, 1966. The
protocol of April 13, 1966, upon entry into
force has the effect of reviving and continu-
ing in force the 1957 agreement. The proto-
col has one substantive article, by which the
duration provision of the 1957 agreement
is amended so that the agreement will
remain effective until December 31, 1967,
unless, before that date, it is terminated by
a notice of denunciation by either party
pursuant to the terms of the agreement or is
replaced by a new agreement. Steps are
being taken to negotiate a new agreement to
replace that of 1957.

The Budget Message of the President (Excerpts)'

To the Congress of the United States:

A Federal budget lays out a two-part plan
of action:

• It proposes particular programs, mili-
tary and civilian, desired to promote na-
tional security, international cooperation,
and domestic progress.

• It proposes total exqienditures and reve-
nues designed to help maintain stable eco-
nomic prosperity and growth.

This budget for fiscal year 1968 reflects
three basic considerations:

• In Vietnam, as throughout the world,
we seek peace but will provide all the re-
sources needed to combat aggression.

• In our urgent domestic programs we will
continue to press ahead, at a controlled and
reasoned pace.

• In our domestic economy we seek to
achieve a 7th year of uninterrupted growth,
adopting the fiscal measures needed to
finance our expenditures responsibly, permit
lower interest rates, and achieve a more
balanced economy.

In recent years, the American economy
has performed superbly. Since 1963, our
Nation's output has risen at an average rate
of 5.5% a year. 5.3 million more people are
employed and 1.2 million fewer unemployed.

' H. Doc. 15, Part 1, 90th Cong., 1st sess.; trans-
mitted on Jan. 24. Reprinted here are the introduc-
tory paragraphs and conclusion from part 1 and the
sections on international affairs and finance from
parts 1 and 4 of the 478-page volume entitled The
Budget of the United Statea Government for the
Fiscal Year Endinc/ June 30, 19liS, for sale by the
Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government
Printing Office, Washington, D.C., 20402 ($1.50).

Industrial capacity has grown by 18%, and
far less of it is idle than was the case 3
years ago.

During this past calendar year alone:

• Our Nation's gross national product —
apart from price changes — has grown by
nearly 5.4%.

• The unemployment rate has remained
at or below 4% for the first time in 13 years.

• More than 3 million additional jobs were
found in nonagricultural employment, the
largest yearly gain experienced since 1942.

• Corporate profits and personal income
have each grown about 8% to record levels.

We have at the same time become engaged
in a major effort to deter aggression in
Southeast Asia. Some $19.9 billion of the
Nation's resources will go to support that
eff'ort in the current fiscal year and $22.4
billion in 1968. This past year our economy
met these requirements with minimum strain
and disruption.

Federal Programs and Expenditures

International affairs and finance. — In the

long run, greater opportunities and security
for our own citizens will be possible only if
other peoples also share in progress toward
a better and more secure life. To this end,
our international programs in the coming
year will emphasize helping the less de-
veloped nations to increase their food pro-
duction, expand their educational opportuni-
ties, and improve the health of their citizens.
Based on a thorough review of our eco-
nomic assistance objectives and programs, I



will recommend new legislation and specific
actions to:

• Require more effective self-help meas-
ures by recipient countries as a condition for
U.S. aid;

• Increase the amount of assistance for
the key sectors of agriculture, health, and

• Supiiort regional arrangements and
make greater use of multilateral channels
through which other nations cooperatively
share the costs of economic development;

• Encourage greater participation by
private enterprise in the development proc-
ess; and

• Concentrate our aid in those countries
where successful development is most

We are gratified by the achievements of
the Alliance for Progress and shall continue
to work closely with our hemispheric neigh-
bors to help build schools and homes, create
new jobs, and improve health and nutrition.
But much remains to be done. I shall be
meeting shortly with the chief executives of
the other American governments to review
the goals and progress of the Alliance. At
that time we will consider new cooperative
programs to accelerate growth in critical

In South Vietnam, we will increase our
economic assistance for projects directly aid-
ing people in the villages and hamlets. This
stepped-up effort is urgently needed to help
these people construct their farms and
houses in safety and build the foundations
for a better life in that strife-torn country.

To pursue the War on Hunger more
effectively, our assistance to agriculture and
our Food for Freedom shipments will en-
courage and support efforts by the develop-
ing nations to increase their own food pro-
duction. In cooperation with other nations,
