Gilbert's What Young People Think' College Girls Top Spenders; The Budget's Up; Papa Pays By EUGENE GILBERT President of the Gilbert Youth Research Co. How much should you spend on outfitting yourself for school this fall?

In addition to looking into buying habits of grammar and school students, survey teams visited such campuses as Vassar, Bryn Mawr, Radcliffe, University of California, Connecticut, Chicago, Nebraska, Oregon, Wellesley, Cornell, Duke, Iowa State, Temple, Syracuse, Purdue, Florida State, Alabama, Kansas, Maine, Texas, Carnegie Tech., Indiana, Missouri and many others. We were concerned largely with coed buying habits because girls usually spend about twice as much as boys in outfitting themselves at. the college level.

It included every kind of apparel and from lingerie to um- wound up with a new wallet — probably on the that the old one would b out at the end of the shopping tour. , This young miss told us she did most of her shopping during the lunch hour of her summer job, dashing to a department store where the family had a charge account—a confession that father was footing a goodly portion of the bill. Others acquired their back-to- school items through'gifts, part- time jobs, savings, family charge per cent buy their own and personal items, 68 per cent shopped with a parent and only 9 per cent have their shopping done for them. Among girls in the upper high school grades, the statistics are even more revealing. Here 48 per cent shopped by themselves and 49 per cent were accompanied by a parent. But 90 per cent who shopped with a par- the final choice was with the teen-ager. The younger group admitted some influence on the part of a parent, but claimed a strong voice in the final decision.
