Before the Honolulu Conference and since, I have stressed repeatedly that the war on human misery and want is as fundamental to the successful resolution of the Vietnam conflict as are our military operations to ward off aggression. In recent weeks I have asked those Departments of the Governmeazt with special competence in our continuing attack on hunger, ignorance and disease to bring their resources to bear in Vietnam. I have expressed my special interest in the progress of these new initiatives and the effective marshalling of all governmental resources and programs being brought to bear in the civil sector of our commitments in Vietnam. In my view it is essential to designate a specific focal point ' for the direction, coordination and supervision in Washington of ~~ U.S. non-military programs for peaceful construction relating to - Vietnam. I have accordingly designated Mr. Robert W. Korr~zr as Special Assistant to me for carrying out this responsibility. c.
