BiqiNJ OILBtRT'S 'WHAT YOUNG PEOPLE THINK' Parents Are Counting on Teeners tor Companionship Plus in Old Age '16-AUSTIN (Minn) HfRAlO Wednesday, Dec. 17, '58 GILBERT, President, Gilbert Yovth Research C«. Even more than you young people nifty resltie, parents are counting OB you as pillars of their old In another one of our turn about surreys, fre hate discovered that nine out of ten of them expect their children to pay their bills if necessary when they are old. One reason (and this may come M a shock also) is that a ma- ority of parents regard their children as more sophisticated, better educated, wore secure than they vrere at the same ages. They even expect them to become better parents. The parents we talked to were my blunt about the children's "duty" to pay the bills for Mom and Dad, and to open their homes. No Thanks Say Some Eight out of ten parents are ready to move right in with their children if it becomes necessary. "I think all older folks should live with their married children," says Mrs. Thomas Gerhart, of Chicago. Mrs. Nancy Breckenridge, of Atlanta, wants to live "surrounded by my grandchildren." But the minority who want no part of this shared home are equally vehement. "I didn't give birth to three children to try to make their lives is r^r^ti, (hi unpleasant," says Mrs. Louise Watson, of Salem, Oregon. "So I dont plan ever to move in on them in my dotage." Sensitive to this problem of three generations in one house is Mrs. Edgar G. Healy, Chickisaw, Ala., who comments, "Families are bet- ter off alone — everyone will be happier if grandmother lives away from them, and visits when it is convenient." Brief visits, not full-time housing, are recommended also by Mrs. Philip B. Wilson, Long Beach, Calif., who hopes she'll live near enough to her children to help babysit. While voting by a majority of 56 per cent that today's young people will make better parents than they themselves, the parents gave an 80 per cent majority nev- etheless to the proposition that the teeners are more in need or parental control — perhaps a commentary on today's confused living as much as on the youngsters' ability to handle their own lives. The breakdown runs like this: Seventy per cent say their children are more sophisticated; 98 per cent more secure; 52 per cent, more mature; 91 per cent, better educated; 60 per cent, more selfish; and 8 per cent, more unruly. Feel Companionable Seventy . seven per cent feel their children are less demonstrative, but in spite of this, think they are close to their children —in terms of understanding. They reiterated the feeling of Mrs. Florence Rankin, Norwood, O., who said, "We understand each other — we are companionable and compatible." The parents think improved education will enable the youngsters to be still more successful parents when their turn comes. As a Medford, Oregon, matron, says, "With the myriad opportunities enjoyed by the youngsters, they must reap the benefits." Frank discussion within the family group is invaluable in preparing teen-agers for parenthood, say their fathers and mothers. Robert Loffert, of Los Angeles, Calif., who has three children, asserts, "They are participating in our parental problems and can gain understanding." Mrs. Carl Carlson, of Fergus Falls, Minn., has a different slant. She feels marrying at a younger age. helps make for better parenthood. "They are having children younger and are growing up with them," she comments. Expect Support Parents are willing to confess that they have made mistakes, and many express the conviction that their children will profit by them. But the minority group don't ML A.

Christmas Trees Must Clear Many Hurdles hold to this optimistic view. Parents will be parents, and kids, kids, no matter what. "No one can tell me human nature ever changes," is the comment of John Cottswold, Butte, Mont. But being handed an accolade for ability, the youngsters may be jolted to learn that their par- ents expect to move in on them when old age arrives. They're very blunt about the children's "duty" to pay the bills for Mom and Dad, and to open their homes. "I've worked all my life for my children," says Jesse Coulter, of Oklahoma City, 'Okla. "Now it's their turn to take care of me. I'm looking forward to the prospect." And Harry Unnsly of Maeon, Ga. is equally definite about it. "You give a child everything during his formative years. At least let them take care of you during your declining years." Ninety-eight per cent of the parents expect their children to pay their bills when they themselves ar* old. A few express the hope that this support 'won't be necessary. Supersonic Jet Crashes; Pilot Killed, 2 Hurt TUCUMCARI, N.M (AP)-One of the nation's secrecy-wrapped supersonic B58 jet bombers crashed Tuesday killing the pilot and injuring the other two crewmen. The four-engine bomber which can travel 1400 to 1500 miles an hour fell about 35 miles southeast of here. It was the first of its type to crash. pilot Maj.

How has family life changed since you were a teener? Comparing your children with yourself at their age, do you think them more sophisticated? More unruly? More worldly wise? More in need of parental control? More affectionated? Better educated? More selfish? More secure? More mature? Do you think it will be better or worse for your grandchildren? Do you think your children will'make better or worse parents than you? Do you think you are as close to your children as you were to your parents? Do you expect your children to support you in your old age? Do you think children should support their elderly parents? Would you want to live with your children when you are old? Do you think you know more or less about raising children than your parents did? Do you think you are bringing your children up as well as you were brought up? Probably very few people have any idea of the legal hurdles which Christmas trees must clear between the woods and the market. fo begin with, before any trees are cut, notice must be posted by the operator at the site and sent by registered mail to the State Director of Forestry at St. Paul. All taxes on the land must be paid before any trees are removed. Forestry regulations for disposal of slashings and other precautions for fire prevention must be compiled with, the Minnesota State Bar Assn. explains. Under an old law still hi force, one who wilfully cuts/ a tree on land of another or of the state without permission is guilty of a serious crime (commonly called malicious mischief.) Furthermore, willful and unauthorized cutting of trees on state land (commonly called timber trespass) is an even more serious crime, coupled with civil liability for treble damages. Check Origin However, these drastic provisions failed to stop the once common practice of free-for-all cutting of Christmas trees without permission, because it was difficult to catch offenders in the remote forest areas before they got away with the trees. To cope with this problem more effectively the 1949 Legislature passed an additional law whereby the origin and legality of trees can be checked anywhere from cutting site to market. The law states that a 'person who cuts any evergreen or coniferous tree or its branches or tops for use as Christmas trees or other decorative purposes must have the written consent of the land owner on a form provided by the Department of Conservation. This form, or a certified copy, must be carried by every person cutting, removing, or transporting such trees and must be shown to any forest officer, game warden, or pther officer of the law authorized to check the trees on the ground or in transit. When trees are shipped by common carrier the consent form must be shown to the agent. Transportaton Permit Every person transporting such trees on a public highway must WHAT YOUNG PEOPLE THINK ARE THE TOP RECORDS OF THE WEEK Compiled Weekly By The Gilbert Youth Research Company also obtain a transportation permit from the Commissioner of Conservation except in the case of one transporting not more than six trees for bis own use. However, the latter must carry the land owner's consent form, as in other eases. At every plaee where such trees are accumulated or concentrated for shipment, or transportation to market, a notice must 'be posted listing the owner or owners of the trees and giving the legal description of the land from which they were cut. A permit from the Commissioner of Conservation, costing $200, is required for engaging in the busi ness of processing coniferous trees for use as Christmas trees, decora tlons, or other purposes, except for operators processing 1,000 trees or less. Violations of these provisions are punishable by fine or imprison' ment, and the trees involved are subject to confiscation, the Minnesota State Bar association explains. Further information may be obtained from the State Division of Forestry, St. Paul, or any forest ranger station. The average (median) income for persons with income in 1956 was $2,432. A J957 survey indicated a new record level of $3,609 lor the average income of men, a gain of about $250 over the previous year. Among women, the average income in 1956 was $1,146, little changed from that of the preceding four years. Since the close of World War II, the average income of men has doubled, while that of women increased only 27 per cent © encyclopedia BrtUnnle* Weeder's Guide iy CYNTHIA I.OWRY (At* famfeatatefl Write*) CHAPPAQUA, M. Y, - The nut sery truck made Mto deliveries this year to s new real estate de velopment abulldlnf not far from here. The houses, which in no cheap ones, show the uniformity one senses in spite of the tariou colored paint Jobs and slight re arrangements of floor plans from split-level to ranch.. But after the spring delivery o the nursery, the houses looked more peas-in-a-pod than ever each house sported a young dog wood spang in the middle of the front lawn, and four small azaleas meticulously spaced, on elthe side of the front door. This fall the truck makes its rounds again dealing out small balled and bur lapped trees and shrubs like card to poker players: two pyramidal arborvitae (for the corner*) two mugho pines (foundation planting under windows), two pfitzer Jun- pers, one Norway spruce, on Colorado blue spruce, two Japan ese yews and two pin oaks to etc plot. And into the ground they wil go, according to play — the sam plan, whether the house face south or north, whether the groun is rocky and graded or flat an filled. The effect, of course, i neat, tidy and impressive — th way the precision of a drill team or a chorus row of kickers is im pressive. But while production-line plant ing is practical for a real estat developer, production-line livin is highly impractical for mos families. Few of us would settl for a house furnished, piece fo piece, like that of our next doo neighbor. In the first place, i would be impractical: the folks next door have two small'children and use one bedroom for a play room; you have three teen-ag children and need the bedroom fo a bedroom. The same is true of one's land scaping, Family needr and famtt tastes differ. You may have passion for backyard living the family next door may prefe to put all their planting where i will enchant the passerby. Th location of your house or the eon dition of your soil may requir one type of plant material whil the house just across the stree may have other needs. The impulse of most of us i to augment our basic newhous planting by making a trip to our local nursery and picking up a few evergreens and maybe some flowering trees and shtub*~to be chosen at the nursery on the basis of their price and appearance. Nothing could be leu farsighted or eft- travagftnt. This ii, true enough, the best time of th* year for plant' ing evergreens, followed by most deciduous trees and shrubs. But, as In every other phase of garden- ing, purchases should come after planning is finished. Decide ahead of time what you need and what you want from your land. That spot outside the picture window, for instance. Would it be best set up as a play spot for the children — within eyeshot from inside the house — or can it be made into a handsome garden sflBt, complete with formal rose garden, bird bath and i background of flowering shrulsi? 06 you want the privacy of a living screen of hedge, shrubs and trees rimming your land) Or do you want to out it up into sj>»- cial areas for special purposes-v, an open stretch of lawn visible from the street, with a play area or utility yard hidden from neighbors' eyes? These are Just § few of the considerations to be thought over and talked over before raak. ing that trip or getting out the spade. When Madame Marie Curie discovered radium she was presented with a gram of radium purchased by American women for a hundred thousand dollars. In turn, she contributed the pre< clous gram to scientists for further medical work. CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH HINTS By Th« Austin Chiropractic Society In MM Intent* ef Bettor Public HeaMk If You Do Not Enjoy Good Health, Consult Your Chiropractor First YOU NEED NOT SUFFER WITH SCIATICA Sciatica, as the name implies, Is an involvement of the sciatic nerve. A person suffering this condition experiences excruciating pains down the involved leg; some while standing, others while moving or even sitting, and some have the pains in nearly every position. Chiropractics hava paced research into the true cause of sciatica and pegged it on a structural disrelationship of the lower spine. It is well known to students of anatomy that the sciatic nerve originates in the spinal cord, follows a course down the back of the thigh and ramifies in the lower leg, its nerve path reaching all the way down into the foot. They may also know that the roots of this nerve pass between or through openings in the bone structure at the base of the spine and that they are in close relationship to the sacroillac joint fitting snugly into the rear of the pelvic girdle and forming a sturdy foundation for the spinal column. Basically sciatica is of two types: mild and severe. The milder fcftt, called sciatic neuralgia, varies in pain from light to severe flashes along the, entire route of the nerve. On the other hand the severe type, called sciatic neuritis, is said to be one of the moee insufferable of hu* man agonies. Only about 15 percent of sciatica cases reach this degree of torture. Th« aggravation of sciatica Is such that the sufferer will try any* thing for temporary relief: heat, electricity, ultraviolet ray, sedatives, back braces and even opera* tions to immobilize the lower spins. It is important to emphasize the word RELIEF under these treatments because none correct the dis- relationship of the spinal or pelvia structure—the actual causative factor in sciatica. There is only one way to banish the condition. That is by skillful manipulation and specific adjustment of the lower spinal structure into an ideal relationship conducive to normal nerve functions. Consult your local chiropractor for pleasant soothing relelf from this aggravating condition. This Last Two me. WK.
