An overwhelming majority of the nation's teen-agers are opposed to curfew laws that would make them be home at a certain hour of the night. Instead, they have some pretty definite ideas of their own on when they should report in. "We don't want to be told by law when we have to be home from a date," was the general reaction our interviewers encountered in a survey of some j)0 cities and towns that currently do not have a teen-aged curfew. They felt that on week ends and during vacations, 14 to 15 year olds should be home by 11:30 from ordinary dates, and by 12:30 at the latest on special occasions. For 16 and 17 year olds they figured a 1:30 o'clock homecoming would be all right for special occasions. Most young people IS to 21 years old thought they should be permitted to use their own discretion about returning home. Curfew laws, common in colonial America, have been revived in San Francisco, Philadelphia Omaha and dozens of other cities Forrester, 547 Highland Ave. Mr. Jones and Mr. Forrester served in the Third Marine Engineers together during World War n. Mr. and Mrs. George F. Owens. 1524 Langdon St., have returned from Pittsburgh, Pa., where they attended the funeral of Mr. Owen's father, John Owens, who died Sunday at the age of 91. - David L. Saylor II, Fairmount Addition, has been reelected to membership in the Alumni Council of Mercersburg Academy, Mercersburg, Pa., according to word received here from the academy today. in an attempt to break up youth gangs and curb juvenile delinquency. Second Class Citizen* Some officials credit them with reducing juvenile crime by as much as 25 per cent, but our interviewers quickly learned that curfew rings no bells with the nation's teenagers. Our question was: "Do you favor a curfew law for teenagers in your town?" No, answered a whopping 79 per cent. Only 16 per cent favored the curfew idea and 5 per cent had not made up their minds. Seldom have the nation's teenagers been so close to unanimity on a subject concerning their behavior. Many of the answers showed a degree of indignation, even belligerency, not noted in previous surveys made by our organization. Several compared curfew to treating teen-agers like "citizens of an occupied enemy country." Others delivered scorching salvoes against advocates of curfew laws and argued that they undermine a youngster's self respect and confidence in himself. In general, teen-agers opposed to curfew regarded it as unwarranted government infringement on their freedom and on the rights and duties of their parents. Think It's Parents Problem* "It's up to the individual parents and their children to decide when the boy or girl should arrive home," said a 17-year-old boy. "Some kids I know are mature enough to make their own decisions on when they ought to be home, and others have to be told by their folks. And what's wrong with that? Every person is different from everyone else." But the general unpopularity of the curfew idea does not mean that most teenagers want to become night owls. Our survey showed that on the whole young people want to be regulated by their parents in matters of dating privileges. Many, in fact, complained that their parents did not take sufficient interest in the social life of their offspring. "Parents these days don't seem to care where or with whom their kids are spending their time," complained a Nevada girl. "There is going to be a brand new crop of delinquents and adult neurotics if they continue acting so uninterested in their teen-aged children." The survey showed that 53 per cent of the high school toys and girls were allowed to date on week nights. Of these, only one out of four had to be home at a specific time, although most were put on their honor to exercise common sense. Week Mght Dating New- Week night dating is a post war development among the teenaged set. A survey made 12 years ago showed that only 30 per cent were allowed to go out on school nights, and of these, 75 per cent had a designated hour when they had to be home. A Minneapolis girl reached the same conclusion on the basis of personal statistics. "My older sisters," she told us, "never could go out during the week. My parents wouldn't let them. But I am allowed to go out any time I want to, as long as I am in by 11:30 and my marks don't go down." A 15-ygar-old Newton. Mass.. girl commented that "a person 18 to 21 is old enough to get married and raise a family. Surely she should be allowed to stay out as late as she chooses." A college sophomore in Michigan brought up another angle: "I go to school over 1,000 miles away from my home. The college Rives me a lot of leeway. If I'm old enough to leave my home for months at a time, why shouldn't I be considered o 1 d enough to return from a date anytime I deem sensible?
