Item # 616848

January 5, 1965

THE SPRINGFIELD UNION, Springfield, Massachusetts, January 5, 1965  The front page has a five-column, three line headline "President Asks Slash In Excise Taxes, Bids Red Leaders Visit U.S." with sub-headline "Would Increase Poverty War, Education Funds" "Johnson Finds National 'Restless, Growing, Full of Hope'" and includes a photo of him delivering the address.
