Of Talk By Professor

A clarion call to the youth of Mich-
igan to take immediate action to solve
the problems facing it and the world
was sounded last night in Hill Audi-
torium at the opening session of the
Michigan Youth Congress, the first
state-wide meeting of youth in the
Representing more than 100 or-
ganizations in the state and ranging
from Boy Scouts to young commun-
ists, 450 delegates who had poured
into Ann Arbor all yesterday after-
noon and night from cities, high
schools, and factories massed in the
auditoruim to hear and applaud the
harangues of national youth leaders
who had come here to address them.
Ages Between 18 and 22
The audience, made up mainly of
people between the ages of 18 and 25
interrupted the three speakers re-
peatedly with loud applause, and the
rest of the time listened with pro-
found silence to the message of hope
that was delivered from the rostrum.
The keynote of the meeting was
struck by Richard Babb Whitten of
Tulane University, national chairman
of the Student League for Industrial
Democracy. He said, in part, "today,
the youth of America have to face
the breakdown of the social struc-
ture, aid must beware of sops thrown
to them by demagogues like Huey
Long who are aping the tactics of
a Hitler or a Mussolini."
"No matter how black or brown the
shirts of their adherents may be,"
he declared, "they cover empty stom-
achs of foolish, silly young men who
will be used as cannon fodder to pro-
tect the systems they are victims of.
"I adjure and appeal to you to
watch with all your intelligence for
signs of Fascism, which may be dis-
guised in the words of men like The
Kingfish of Louisiana, and which like
the words of Hitler are held up to
ridicule in the first stages of Fascist
state, but which may later form the
doctrines of a reactionary minority
bent on protecting their own inter-
Minehan Speaks
"The old order is dead," Whitten
asserted, "and it is up to the youth to
develop a new pioneering spirit, and
to cooperate with intellectual and
manual workers and small business-
men in building a new and better so-
cial order."
The openin'g address of the Con-
gress was delivered by Thomas Mine-
han, professor of sociology at the
University of Minnesota and author
of "Boy and Girl Tramps of the Road."
Professor Minehan painted a vivid
picture of the conditions among the
vagrant youth population of the
United States, drawing upon his ex-
perience among these people for ex-
amples of his points.
"I was surprised," he declared, "to
discover that here in America, not in
ignorant Russia, not in bad Germany,
not in Africa, nor among the abori-
gines of Australia or Patagonia, but
right here in our own United States,
we have a whole army of youth, home-
less, shelterless, living 'on the bum.'"
No Help From Old Generation
"Youth can look to the elder gen-
eration for no help, no inspiration,
no leadership." The elder genera-
tion got themselves and youth into
the present mess. Youth must get
itself out of it."
Professor Minehan described the
hardships of fatigue, illness, injury,
hunger, and cold which boy and girl

tramps must face. "I believe, how-
ever, that the biggest injury they are
receiving, and f4om which other
American youths are not immune, is
an injury to their morale."
An introductory address was made
by Waldo McNitt, chairman of the
continuations committee of the Amer-
ican Youth Congress held in New
York last summer.
