ROY ROBERTS was a true friend. He was my friend, but more than that, he was America's friend.

His ideals were America's ideals. His public service was performed in the loftiest tradition.

Americans who knew him will mourn his death. All of us join in thoughts and prayers for his wife and family. But all of us are sustained in our sadness by the living legacy he leaves.


Note: The statement was read by George E. Christian, Special Assistant to the President, at his news conference at 11:18 a.m. on Friday, February 24, 1967. It was not made public in the form of a White House press release.

Roy Roberts was former president and chairman of the board of the Kansas City Star and past president of the American Society of Newspaper Editors.
