Town send, leader of the national re covery plan, emphasized in an after-speech interview last night in a downtown hotel his claim that “The present economic condition into which people of your age enter from universities constitutes the base of the atrocious crime in the history of the world’s civilization.” Speaking before 1500 people in McArthur court last night, some of whom wore Townsend club rib bons from towns up and down the coast, Dr. Townsend pointed out how Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal had failed as an answer to the current economic problem. “Here's an economic situation which ruins thousands of young men and women,” the doctor asserted, switching the theme of his speech of the evening to cor respond with problems of colle giate youth. Dr. Townsend revealed by sta tistics how young people oi Am erica will profit by the opening of professions which will come through the acceptance of the re covery plan. "We are going to be overloaded with talent that has no opportun ity,” the 74-year-old economist, who is still as tough as leather, exclaimed. Robert Monaghan, secretary to Dr. Townsend, prefaced the doc tor’s talk with a speech on the cur rent progress of the Townsend re covery plan in congress and throughout the country. The doctor will leave for Grants Pass today where he is to be init-# iated into the nationally-famous Oregon Cavemen. His plans will carry him on a complete circuit that ends up in New York just prior to election day.
