Speaking to the young Democrats
of : the Eleventh district last Friday
night in Asheville. Walter T. Craw
ford made a bitter attack on the Re
publican administrations, and mo -e
especi ally the one from 1928 to 19-52.
He compared things accomplished
under President Roosevelt with the
things broken down by Mr. Hoover.
- He went into detail of what had
been done by Mr. Roosevelt during his
three and a half years in office,, and
said: "What do the Republicans offer
the people of this nation m substitu
tion for this great work we have been
carrvine on for the oast three and a
half year? They have not said by
their convention assembled that they
-will hot offer Herbert Hoover to us
for another term in office."
"They have not told you that it tney
succeed in November that they will
not return to the old order of things
and that they will not nominate a
reactionary at their convention.
"They ridicule and criticize Presi
dent Roosevelt for what he has done,
but offer no substitute for hi works,
The only tangible thing they offer
is a return to the party whose re
cord has been one of reaction and
'rugged individualism.' The party who
favors the few as against the many.
Having progressed thus far, it be
hooves us not to turn back.
"There can be no turning back.
