Kennedy's first radio-TV speech from the oval office in which he talks about his meetings French President Charles de Gaulle, Prime Minister Harold Macmillan, and Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev. Speaking of his “very sober two days” with Khrushchev in Vienna, President Kennedy says, “He believes the world will move his way without resort to force. Most of all, he predicted the triumph of communism in the new and less developed countries.” Kennedy appeals for national support of his $4.8 billion program of foreign aid for the coming year. Sid Davis, announcer. Group W's "Radio Newsday" for June 6 follows (at 26:00). Jerry Landry summarizes the president's trip and the news of the day with Jim Snyder.
