Address at University of Kansas

March 18, 1968


Lawrence, KS

I run for the presidency because I’ve seen proud men on the hills of Appalachia, who wish only to work in dignity; but they cannot, for the mines have closed and their jobs are gone and no one—neither industry, labor, nor government—has cared enough to help. I think we here in this country, with the unselfish state that exists in the United States of America, I think we can do better here also.
