    "I SPEAK NOT ONLY TO YOU BUT TO YOUR GENERATION," HE DECLARED IN TELLING THE FELLOWS:
    "THE SPIRIT OF THAT GENERATION TODAY IS, FIRST OF ALL, A QUESTIONING, CRITICAL SPIRIT, SKEPTICAL OF PROMISES AND RATHER IMPATIENT WITH RESULTS. THAT IS THE SPIRIT THAT MAY SOMETIMES OVERLY CONCERN YOUR ELDERS, BUT YOUR COUNTRY NEEDS IT."
    "TODAY'S YOUNG PEOPLE ENJOY NOT ONLY UNPARALLELED EASE AND COMFORT BUT THEY ENJOY ENORMOUS FREEDOM OF INQUIRY, FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION AND YES, FREEDOM OF DISSENT THAT FREE SPIRIT WE NEED, TOO.

    "FOR FREEDOM OF SPEECH CAN NEVER HARM US--IF WE REMEMBER THAT FREEDOM OF SYSTEM IS A TWO-WAY STREET. WE MUST GUARD EVERY MAN'S RIGHT TO SPEAK; BUT WE MUST DEFEND EVERY MAN'S RIGHT TO ANSWER.
