Truman speaking to convention My duty as President requires that I use every means within my power to get the laws the people need on matters of such importance and urgency. I am therefore calling this Congress back into session on the 26th of July. People cheering. Now, my friends, if there is any reality behind that Republican platform, we ought to get some action from a short session of the 80th Congress. They can do this job in 15 days, if they want to do it. They will still have time to go out and run for office. Cheering. Senator Barkley and I will win this election and make these Republicans like it - don't you forget that! Truman and Barkley with hands raised. President Harry Truman, Bess Truman, Margaret Truman with Senator Alben Barkley and his wife on stage.
