Sold at your FORD HOPKINS DRUG STORE Highlights of Talk by Roosevelt By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Highlights of President Roosevelt's address before the Young Democratic clubs of Maryland at Baltimore Monday night follow: "Flaming youth has become a flaming question. And y o u t h conies to us wanting to know what we propose to do about a society that hurts so many of them." "Many older people seem to take unmerited pride in the mere fact that they are adults." "You have a right to expect that those in authority will do everything within their power to help restore conditions that make employment and opportunity possible." "Some counsellors say 'confidence and normal prosperity will cure everything--give everybody jobs.' They generally mean by that the confidence and prosperity of 1928. But, my friends, 1928 was no milleniura." "The best that the captains of the country, and the captains o£ industry, could do for you before the depression was not good enough then and it is not good enough today." "Some people will tell you that even with a completely restored prosperity there will be a vast army of unemployed. I do not accept that. No man who is sensitive to human values dares to accept it." "Our working population increases every year. » * * work out for yourselves what would happen if all the boys and all the girls of 14 and 15 and 16 and 17 who are now working in industry, found it possible to stay jn school until they were at least 18 years old. * * * in the same way ask yourselves how many jobs would be created if the great majority, of people who are now over 65 * * * were in a position to retire in security." "Industry can contribute in great measure to the increase of employment if industry as a whole will undertake reasonable reductions of hours of work per week, while, at the same time, they keep the average individual's pay envelope at least as large as it is today.' 1 "The government must give and will give consideration to such subjects as the length · of the working week, the stability of employment on an annual basis, and the payment of at least adequate minimum wages." "We believe that steps « * * which we have taken and are taking will at least greatly cushion depressions--will prevent the up- curve from rushing to a violent mad peak of false prosperity and prevent another violent, mad descent into another sink of suffering and disillusionment." "I, for one, do not believe that the era of the pioneer is at an end. * * * the period of social pioneering is only at its beginning."
