Lyndon Johnson on Families & Children
His efforts brought him his first taste of national fame. The organization he built in Texas was used as a model by many other states. He put thousands of youngsters to work on such projects as playgrounds, highways roadside parks and soil conservation. He pleaded the merits of his boys and girls to private employers. He urged college officials to see that their NYA appointments were used effectively to give deserving and needy students a chance.
Within a year, there were thousands of young Texans who called him "Lyn" and regarded him as personally responsible for their economic salvation.
