Col. Herbert H. Lehman, Lieutenant-Governor-elect, was the principal speaker Thursday night at the annual dinner of the Big Brother Movement held at the Biltmore Hotel.

“During the last twenty-five years life here has undergone tremendous changes, and while we have gained much in prosperity, convenience and comfort in this material, mechanical age, there has been a decided lessening in spiritual benefits and the problem of boyhood is a much greater one today than ever before,” he declared.

Colonel Lehman urged that labor and welfare legislation be regarded on a completely non-partisan basis.
