Why is this text such a presentation mess? It seems to render the text unusable especially without an explanation for the crossouts, etc. or what they may mean. Please advise why this would be kept here, in what I presumed would be a repository for works of importance. I came here for a finished copy of the speech President Eisenhower read to the public. Instead I will have to go to the Internet. Thank you. Stevenmitchell (talk) 10:41, 5 January 2016 (UTC)Reply

This page is a digitalization of the papers which Eisenhower read from as he delivered the address, which he heavily edited beforehand. It is here because of its historical importance and interest. We also host other versions of the same text which might be more suitable for your purposes. Prosody (talk) 03:39, 6 January 2016 (UTC)Reply
