6 —B THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT- VERNON, ILLINOIS WEDNESDAY, JANUAPY 23, 10G9 .NEA's. Youth Beat The National Report on What's Happening MOVEGOERS' CHRONICLE: Movie going increase* steadily A 'ith level of education. The 16-24 age group is most frequent In attendance. Seventy per cent of television movie viewers feel they have been cheated by the "edited" version and the frequent commercials. Almost all feel great er involvement" in a theater . . . Intimacy, darkness, mood, wide screen, sharing, surroundings and people all hyp up the sensitivity of the individual. Also a factor w*s the rehash. Many enjoy the social discussions that follow a mutually viewed motion picture. Half the population never goes to the movies! The Motion Picture Association revealed all of above in a special survey just completed. Also found out that television is the most potent force with which the movie industry must concern itself. Now worries for theater owners and operators; wide screen television at home, community antenna television (CATV) with excellent home reception, the specter of pay television on a wire web across the nation plus recent FCC decisions encouraging "program origination" on the part of CATV setups. The answer for the movie makers, distributors and exhibitors lias to be quality and lot* more of it! MUSIC FLASH! Look for "Soushake" to crack the TOP 40 big. big. Peggy Scott and Jo Jo Benson have an album that is loaded with winners. It's a Nashville arrow around at Motown dominance and it's in the heart of the target. It's exactly what it says: "Soulshake." You gotta dance when you hear it. HOROSCOPE INTELLIGENCE: Arc summer-born smarter than spring-or winter-born people? A University of Wisconsin research program says "no." Standard intelligence and personality tests failed to show any difference in level of intelligence related to birth date! Whew! LORE OF YORK: An old remedy for warts was to say prayers backwards. Some modern day experts contend El Greco's style was due to defective eyesight. In some ai'eas of this country a baby was" "assured" of long life by being passed around a table leg three times. VIOLENT GIRLS: Big trouble. "Social skills" still areu't up to coping with the violent urge that remains in women de> spite all of the historical "weuk- I er sex," "gentler sex" identification. Child beatings are a serious national problem. The blunt weapon of "repression" is society's main weapon to keep the cool. Girls don't have contact sports, don't have enough competitive outlets, don't com* pete in enough boy-girl athletics, according to many leading psychologists. They say violence Is a norm and not a deviation from it! Anyone heard of hair nulling and eye scratching lately?
