American commentary, transcript on file.
Various shots of President J Kennedy receiving an honorary degree of Doctor of Law with cut'ins of audience. MS. Kennedy speaking - "I have best of both worlds a Harvard Education and a Yale degree. I am particularly glad to become a Yale man because when I think about my troubles I find that a lot of them come from other Yale men. It is time and of high importance that the prosperity of this country depends on the assurance that all major elements within it will live up to their responsibilities if business were to neglect its obligations to the public if labour will decline public responsibility above all if government were to abandon its obvious and statutory duties and concern to economic health then confidence would decrease."
