President Roosevelt is shown (left) as he presented his broad defense program before both houses of Con-
gress, assembled in the House of Representatives in Washington. Behind the President, at right, sit Speaker

ment of defense is national unity. "We have our difficulties," he said, "but we are a wiser and tougher nation
