Long ago I learned to gather all the facts and the best opinions and then make my own decision, I made another to correct it, but a man cannot nag himself to death with regrets and self doubts. I've always insisted on adequate sleep and complete relaxation before making an important decision. I must have been asked a hundred times how it feels to be 80. It is a foolish question . . . In the first place because aging is a gradual process. I am thankful that the pace has been gratifying slow in my case, so I can honestly say that I feel no different than I did at 50. 1 have been blessed with . . . i :. i . .

A nation nation nation - wide Marshall Plan to wipe out poverty in Negro ghettos Is "the last best hope" to right historic Injustice and avert future rioting, the National National Urban League said today. today. "No extremist groups whether Communist, Birchite, or Black Nationalist could be successful In Igniting a riot if our ghettos were not smouldering smouldering powderkegs of resentment resentment and denial," Whitney M. Young Jr., its executive director, director, told a graduating class of Negro secretaries completing a special training course at New York University. He urged the nation to take "a second look" at the League's domestic Marshall Plan, proposed proposed In June, 1963.

And he gave these examples: "We can no more oveccome centuries of neglect without special effort through mobile zation of our entire national resources against poverty than the slaves of Israel could make bricks without straw for pharoh's cities," Young said. "Either we will formulate a coast - to - coast blue print for equal opportunities for all or we may find ourselves, as we do today, wondering which extremist group or gang will trigger tomorrow's riots," he continued. Young said there was no one "simple solution" for ending disorders. A massive effort is required, he explained, because "you cannot put out a forest fire with a hose and you cannot cannot prevent riots by adding more police."
