THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 1949 BM'lHEVN.rv (AKK.V COUNTER NEWS Hoi Boyle's Column— Hal Boyle Finds U.S. Showing Definite Signs of Becoming a full-Grown, Responsible Nation NEW YORK, — I/P>— Ther« are delinlte signs that America Is growing up. It is settling Hno a postwar pattern o[ stability and responsib- the chaotic years after the first World War. Maybe it Is too soon (o start pinning good conduct medals on ourselves. But it does begin to look likes this country, as a nation, and we, as a people, arc acting more like adults than at any time in our history. There are all sorts oJ signposts t oshow it. The frontier In the United States used to be a frontier of wide land and Seen wilderness. That has been tamed. The new frontiers today are in science and better human rela- •fens between man and man. class TOd class, nation and nation. The people are developing and educating themselves as they develop the resources and productivity of their country. Two world wars and a long depression within a single generation have helped turn Americans from gamblers into investors. Polks aren't so anxious to toss their bankroll away In a single splurge, like kids in a candy store. They want a nest egg in the hank, and take more care to see that they don't end up by going over the hill to the pool-house. They are thinking more and more of life as something to be lived thoroughly ami enjoyed long, rather than as something to burn ur> fast in a bright brief bonfire. And move people are living longer and learning to use leisure more wisely. Making a big dollar is getting tcss important than living a full life, it isn't the goal of every American today to be either president or a millionaire. Money hasn't lost its attraction, of course, but (ewer people are willing to put their whole effort into being able to buy and pay for coronary thrombosis. A -bi? sign of the change in American thought came this week ' on the labor front. It was the decision of the steeUvorkers' union to try for a S100 a month pension and other social gains rather than ,a fuorth-rouhd wage Increase. This ^/. only one of many indications dial, as the working population grows older, it prefers security to the quick buck. In industries where employes reel they arc paid enough , to live in a satisfactory level, they are becoming more interested in better pensions, more holidays, longer vacations, This may be proof, as some believe, that the human race Is Just succumbing to its natural laziness. On the other hand, it conld just as wel] show that people are 7,-tary ol a generation of crisis, tension and war. They want to relax. They'd like to level down the peaks and level up the pits, and make life a more pleasant valley. There is still a reminiscent note from the em of wonderful nonsense about our times. Swimmers are again plying the English Channel, and Joe DiMaggio drives • long home run. But the ««e ol fable Is actually dead, and It Is doubtful if the mad bad 1920's or the disillusioned ]930's will attract us again. We are too old for the rumble seat, and the college boys now have lost their last* for swallowing goldfish. The machinery Is spilling faster and faster, but people are taking more time off to ponder why they were put upon earth—and wonder- trig if it isn't really possible to make It a nicer place. The world—and America—m»y be putting on long pants, after an extended childhood.
