Commencement speech, Brooklyn Tech, by Dr. Wade (card catalog says Benjamin)
We have a good school system. If you don't read the right newspaper, you get the wrong impression. Dark days are here now, but with young men trained as you have been trained, there is always the safety of the country assured.
He doesn't want to read his prepared speech; would like to take a measurement of applause to decide.
"When I was in college, and it wasn't so long ago... (audience laughs) .. I am talking about how I feel about it! (big applause)"
