Robert K. Salyers of Lexington
and Louisville, state director of the
National Youth Administration, was
the principal speaker at the lunch-
eon-meeting and discussed “The
Youth Problem.”

Explaining that he would con-
sider youths of 16 to 25 years of
age, Mr. Salyers stated that the
youth problem in America could
' 3 be'. defined as “the lack of oppor-

' tunity for education, employment,
sOcial adjustment and recreation,”
and, that the solution was merely
to provide the opportunity. ‘

The problem, he said, had been
solved in some European countries,
by the‘ establishment of labor'
camps and the calling of “classes”
to the army, but, he declared that
these plans would not function in
w‘the United States since the demo-
cratic principle required that youth
be permitted to refuse the 'oppor-
tunity as well as to take advantage
of it. _

Surveys have shown, he stated,
that‘ODe-half of the young people
who leave school leave because of
financial inability to continue their
education and that
leave because they see no benefit
to be derived from education. Sixty
' per cent of them, he said, do not
‘ find regular employment within a
year after leaving school.

In, Fayette county, he continued,
the unemployment survey made
last year revealed that there were
700 young people out of school and
out of work and that there Were
500 others on federal emergency
programs. « in»... ~.
