Lt.Gov. Issues Challenge
To The New Generation
Lt. Gpvernor Pat Taylor, speaking
to the annual meeting of the Louis
burg Lions Club ladies night here
Tuesday, challenged today's new gen
eration to match the accomplishments
of what he termed "our" generation.
The Wadesboro attorney, said he was
"not trying to excuse our generation"
but that it, too "had its hands right
full of problems".
"We have a lot of chronically angry
people-.doubting our society", he said
and added that if this continues "Our
society might fall apart and we might
not know how U> put it back together
He said today's young people
would accomplish nothing by trying to
"destroy society and to rebuild on the
ruins". Saying he is "proud of our
generation", the Lt. Governor said
these are "the best and worst of
times" but that the "worst is on the
surface". He said there was a great deal
of good beneath if the new generation
was willing to scratch for it.
"Our generation knew about po
verty without going to Mississippi or
Harlem", he said pointing out that his .
generation was born out of World War
I, reared through the depression and
hit with World War II. He told of "lost
pride" and death from "cold desease
and hunger" during the depression and
related today's four percent unem
ployed figure to the 20 percent jobless
during the depression. He said he
agreed with President Franklin D.
Kooosevelt's claim that one-third of
Americans were "ill-housed, ill-fed and
Addressing his remarks to the new
generation, the Lt. Governor said,
"You are the brightest, the tallest, the
biggest and handsomest generation
ever". He added that "our generation"
has given you vitamins, elevision,
computers, and drugs.
"Look what our generation has
done for the Negro", Taylor said
noting the advances made by the black
man in business, government, sports
and entertainment. "If your genera
tion can make as much progress in the
next twenty years as ours has made in
the past twenty, you may solve what
we call the racial problem."
. He said young people were distress
ed at social ills and noted that only a
few years ago. people were concerned
about the "county poor house",
"chain gangs and the hell of the insane
asylum". He said that "social relation
ship* fall short of our goals" and he
also noted that "Welfare has become a
way of llfe-perhaps too much so".
The Lt. Governor said Vietnam is
"The number one source of discontent
of thefyoung in the body politic" but
tie"Watd""lhift "We are not there for
pride- not there for profit-and not
there for conquest. The verdict of
history is not yet in."
"Inferring sin in this decision in
dicates misunderstanding oft your part
of both morals and men", he said,
addressing his remarks to the new
