Summary
From the Gallery of the House of Delegates, Governor John Stewart Battle speaks at the opening session of the General Assembly. E. Blackburn Moore of Berryville, Speaker of the House of Delegates, introduces the governor. Battle discusses the threats of communism and says that the military has been "engaged in combat with the virtually inexhaustible manpower of despotic and despicable communism, apparently bent upon endless conquest and the extinction of free institutions & free governments everywhere." He also discusses the return to war footing in regard to the war in Korea. He mentions Civil Defense in Virginia, as he believes the people are unaware of the possibility of having nuclear bombs dropped on the country and that the nation is utterly unprepared to deal with such an event. He also speaks about the economy and taxes, as well as the Virginia highway system and absent voter status in Virginia. He also covers public assistance and school building and planning for white and black schools. An analysis of the speech is provided by WRVA's George Passage and Walter Bishop. The second track of this recording has a bit of static, making it more difficult to hear
