While -there Is'a wide'varicty of subjects which divide the nation's youth and 'their elders, the kids polled seem to have reached an understanding with Ihe older generation. : 'A. .vocal minority. '.stresses a difference of opinion on such mailers ,. as morality,' values, styles of dross, politics .and drugs, but in general the.youlhs and -their parents are -meeting each other h a l f , way.- Perhaps it is. the uncertainly of a future gap: between today's young people and Iheir own children that has tempered the current -division.- : ' ··· · · ' ' A 'substantial majority of 65.5 per cent, or two out of every three kids polled, say they have . no 'trouble relating to their parents' generation. , ., · A "generation gap" Is the widest in the !. Northeast' and West but contrary to popular opinion the distance is greater between higli school students and .their -parents than; college students, and theirs.-- . '''.'."'' Furthermore, . more Iwaii- 25 percent of those polled say 'they- relate lo their grandparents "very. well" and nearly 50 per cent r-elate to them "fairly well." '"·-· ' -.. ' , MOST DISTANT When asked on what matters they and the older generation are most distant, Val Schronen, 19, of Dayton, Ohio, responds, "Hair, dress, and sonie- 1 ; moral codes." "Drug use', as i a , social and not legal issue and the use of marijuana. Also 'sexual permissiveness," declares Susi Yaffe, 22, of 'Santa Ana, Calif. "They think' everyone-., with long hair is a hippie," says 'Vincent Rienzi, 16, of Nutley, N. J. "Freedom, music, writing, entertainment in general, fashion styles of all types, attitudes lo- ward politic.5, " sex, · dru'gs, respect for older, people, ".are the topics of disagreement expressed by Kimberly Korman, 17, of Fraingham. Mass. - ADMIRE More -Iha'n half of 'the youths queri.ed, report, that . t^ere is someone in .particular of .the older generation whom (hey especially admire. , "My sociology teacher, he has a good head and is very open-minded," rehinrks'Aliceri'McG'rath, 16,'of C h i c a g o . "My grandfalher because of his individualism and self-made philosphy," adds M i c h a e l King, · 17, of Framlngham. -··· : : · "President Nixon," says Fred WalscJi, M, of · Mclairle, La., "He is a very strong man, he does: what he^ says.he's- going lo do and doesn't cry on Icier vision."-And John Wayne" wins the respect of Kerry Pearson^ 18, qf Ft. ·La'uderdatei Fla., bocaiise "he,believes : in what I belleye In --!America."' IN THE FUTUItE - tt^o out 'of five 'youngsters polled don't foresee'another generation gap in Ihe future between ' themselves - and t h e i : r children but a large percentage, 38'peb'cent of the boys and 30 pei; cent 'of-th'e girls, express un- certainty'about its development. : The kids', responses, while often centering around/^the issues .'that, have recently defined the generation 'gap, also reflect individual ; differences common lo all ·age-groups regardless .of their' .gfcnerjtipni Suggesting that H'"is aifiefe'nces between '· individuals and : not 'generations' that is : significant', Sam Veltri, 22,.'of pulley, N;J.", says,' : "The ' m e a n i n g I of independence and .rights of /a person in-America"-is'the issue aL.stak'e. And there have been differences about that idea since this- v dernpc'racy'i.was fqimded.

Girls' are advised, to stop and think before getting involved in a situation that can result in bitter 'aftereffects and burdeh ; some problems. Is it merely a quest for; iddnlity, popularity, trying''to ..please- a ' b o y ; anger at ·'parents?' In' other : words, donlt- take : the ' mallei", of' sex lightly. - ' ! ' · · ' · ' .

She mentions the merits of. good grooming, sensible dating behavior, the differences in- the Body structure of male and female. Some of the discussions are intimate enough to cause Ihe most modern of p'arents to blush, though today's kids probably will · not. For clearness, scientific terms are generally substituted for t h e vernacular. This book with all ils frankness should, however, lune girls into . the facts of life', and, perhaps, keep them from turn- ing'on too soon. HELEN JOSEPH filled 'with special fluid.
