President Eisenhower of the U.S.A. made his farewell address to the nation on television Jan 17. On Jan 21, Senator John Kennedy will be inaugurated as his successor. President Eisenhower's speech, delivered without emotion, was televised from his office at the White House.
President Eisenhower's last official duty before this term of office expires was to sign a treaty with Canadian Premier John Diefenbaker providing for joint development of the Columbia River basin's water resources. The agreement - signed at the White House Jan 17 - provides for construction of dams on both sides of the border that will yield flood control, power and conservation benefits to both nations.
