Jeanette Beiermann of White Hall, formerly of Jerseyville, was feted with a party given at Carrollton Park by her mother in celebration of her ninth birth- By EUGENE GILBERT President of the Gilbert louth Research Co. Teen-agers regard Rock 'n Roll as a revved up version of the Charleston or Lindy-hop; and they see its most noted practitioner, Elvis Presley, as a lat- terday disciple of Rudy Vallee or Frank Sinatra. Harried parents, for the most part, scorn this comparison with the music of their salad days and go even further back in historj to find a counterpart of the fad. To some of them rock 'n' roll, with its undulating two - beat rhythm, is lewd and dangerous, a throw back to Greek and Roman orgies or some primitive tribal rite. They cite rock 'n' roll riots here and there across the country, and occasional bans on sucb goings on. Clergymen, educators and others in related fields are divided on the subject. A large percentage deplore rock 'n' roll and everything connected with it. But a growing and impressive number of men and women in these same fields tend to agree with the teenagers. They point to the similarities between rock 'n' roll and other dance fads that have swept the country in by-gone years and consider the latest craze a harmless way for youngsters to use up excess energy. Centered now on Presley, whose so-called singing arouses violent hatreds as well as loyalties, the controversy rages on, and the rock 'n' roll phenomenon right along with it. Every day more and more teen-agers between the ages of 13 and 19 become exponents of this new musical form. It Isn't What They Say Our organization interviewed over 3,975 boys and girls and their parents in 41 cities across the nation to find out what young people themselves think about rock 'n' roll and its influence upon them. "I don't know exactly what the reason is, but it just sends me," said an Omaha enthusiast. "The rhythm carries me away," agreed an Indianapolis miss. "When that crazy beat starts, I feel I could rock on forever." Her answer touched on an interesting facet of this new dance mania: the music and not the lyrics is the sending agency for those who are "sent" by it. Of those teen-agers who considered themselves rock 'n' rollers, 73 per cent said the words of the song are less than important. In fact, they told us that rarely do they listen at all to the lyrics. It's the two-beat rhythm that sends them. And, they do not believe that either the music or the lyrics are dangerous or suggestive. To Parents It's Primitive "You're just not with it, man," a Chicago devotee told us, "why is this so much different from the Charleston or the lindy-hop? We're only having some fun be- day Tuesday afternoon. Rob-your-neighbor bingo was played, with prizes for excellence going to Carolyn Day, Janet Wagonblast, Mary Sue Riva, all of Carrollton; Jane Ann Beiermann, and Barbara Zipprich, both of Jerseyville, and Nancy Hansen of White Hall. Refreshments were served some 25 guests. RUDY VALLKK OMAHA COP seems startled as unidentified Presley fan gets into the mood at one of the singer's shdws. fore we get too old to enjoy ourselves." A majority of the parents interviewed looked upon rock 'n' roll with fear and trepidation. "It looks like a Roman orgy when those kids get together," a horrified Cincinnati mother exclaimed. Another Midwest mother told our interviewer: "I think this primitive kind of music, if you can call it that, is downright lewd." The survey showed that 83 per cent of the parents would prefer to see their children socially occupied in some other direction, but only 29 per cent feel so strongly about it that they would like to see rock 'n' roll banned from their communities. Their main concern: "Will rock 'n' roll ruin my child?" The teen agers laugh at such fears. coin Dr., Cottage Hills, at 5:54 a.m. Wednesday in Wood River Township Hospital. Mr. and Mrs. Matthew S.
