President Reagan, devoting his weekly radio address yesterday to a salute to volunteer programs, said today's Hands Across America volunteers will share "the satisfaction of knowing that you have given of yourselves to help others."

"Millions will join in that ancient gesture of good will and friendship, the linking of hands, in a demonstration of concern for the less fortunate," Reagan said. "To all those participating: Good luck. I can wish you nothing finer than the satisfaction of knowing that you have given of yourselves to help others."

In San Francisco, the Rev. Jesse Jackson charged that Reagan's role in Hands Across America hurts "the spirit of the event" because his policies work against the fight to end hunger and homelessness in America.

"He should not be in the line. His policies created the line," Jackson said. "We deserve a president who will not offer cake, prayer clothes, flag and glitter as a substitute for a sound diet for our nation," Jackson said in a commencement address to law school graduates at Golden Gate University.
