GILBERT'S "What Young People Think" Faith, Health And Education Are Viewed By Teeners Requisites For Presidency By EUGENE GILBERT President of the GBbert Youth Research Co. Between now and the second Tuesday in November we will be hearing a great deal about the respective qualifications of .Richard M. Nixon and John Fitzgerald Kennedy for the office of President of the United States. The Constitution prescribes only two; that the office holder be 35 years of age and born in the United States. All other conditions are prescribed by the nominating conventions of both major parties and, in the final analysis, by the electorate itself. In general, what are the qualifications: that most voters expect in a candidate for President? What should he be and mean in the opinion of most people to win the highest office in the land? We put these questions to 985 teen-agers across.the country in an attempt to determine the image that young America has of what a presidential candidate should be or should not be. None of the youngsters interviewed will be eligible to vote on Noy. 8. Indeed, few of them will be able to vote when the next presidential election rolls around in 1964.' . Despite their temporary status of onlookers in this great national drama, we found most of the teenagers keenly interested-in the impending battle between Republican Nixon and Democrat Kennedy. All had very definite ideas of what a President should be. "The Man Who ..." In the minds of most, with personalites aside, it was felt that a presidential candidate' must at least: Believe in God. Be a college graduate. Be in reasonably good health. Not have undergone psychiatric •treatment. '. Never have belonged to the ~ Communist Party. - Never have been a conscientious ~ objector to the draft. ' Not be an active advocate of •World Federalism. These are the minimum things, in the minds of most teen-agers, that a candidate must be or must not be to qualify for .President. In other controversial areas, however, they were far more lenient than, many of their elders. For instance: 76 per cent said they would vote for a candidate who was divorced. 53 per cent said they would vote for a candidate over 65. 61 per cent would vote for a candidate who had jumped parties. 95 per cent would vote for a Protestant. •; 70 per cent would vote for a Catholic.

More youngsters would reject a candidate who had once been a communist (80 per cent), than one who didn't believe in God (72 per cent). And far more would reject a candidate in poor health (88 per cent) than one who had undergone psychiartric treatment (47 per cent). On the atheism question, 17- year-old Patrica Albright of Claremont, Calif., expressed the majority viewpoint that "the United Stales is a God-fearing nation and I think our President should believe in God." Speaking for the 24 per cent minority group who would vote for a candidate who did not believe in God, 18-year- old Thomas Engelman of Charleston, S. C. argued that "just because a man does not believe .in God, does not mean he is incapable of executing his duties as President.'' Most of the 20 per cent who would reject a divorced candidate at the polls asked, the same question as 17-year-old Thomas Kapp of Miami Beach, Fla.: "If he can't handle his own troubles, how's he going to handle the World?"

Since Catholic John Kennedy is the Democratic nominee, the thinking behind the 25 per cent who would reject a Catholic candidate may be more than passing interest. Their objections ranged from fear of the Pope and the candidate's freedom to act on a birth control bill to a belief, that we- are "essentially, a Protestant nation by heritage and population." One girl frankly admitted that she would not vote for a Catholic "because I have a religious per- judice." She gave the identical answer when it came to voting for a Jew. Most of those who would turn down a candidate who had been a Communist .at some time in' the past had no doubts about the possibility of sincere conversion but felt his background would be a drawback in dealing with world problems. "Even though completely converted," commented 18- year-old Sue Parrish of Richmond, Va., "he would arouse suspicion among non-Communist nations and hatred in the Communist bloc." Role of Education The most striking division of opinion was recorded in answer to a question of whether a candidate must be a college graduate. The 40 per cent who said they would vote for a non-college man cited Abraham Lincoln, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and other self made men who figured so prominently in the history of the Republic. "A college diploma," insisted 17-year-old Oliva Kredel of Charleston, S. C., "doesn't make a man any better, nor does the lack of it make him any worse." But ihe 45 per cent who deemed a college education an essential qualification for -the presidency argued that the world has become too complex to entrust its future to the whims of the self- made men. "In today's world, which gets smaller each day while the problems get larger, an education is utmost," said 17-year-old Sharon Glicfcman of Miami Beach, Fla?

Miss Stuart is a pianist—a fine one. In the past, she has operated on the theory that "you have to try many things in your life." She's been a concert artist, a composer, a conductor and she even tried her hand (or, more properly, feet) at ballet and figure skating. A while back, she took spms of her compositions to the Top Rank office, with the idea of getting someone to record them. They agreed they should be recorded, and further felt that Miss Stuart iier.self ought to make a record. Without batting an arpeggio, sha agreed. "They suggested the record," she says, with siill a tou^h of amazement in ner voice. "And ihey said i could do it any way I wanted. All I asked was that [ be allowed 10 .nclude som^ if my own.songs—and that I didn't wnat to conduct." The result is "Out of the Dark," a beautiful album recorded in England with.a 40-piece orchestra backing Miss Stuart on a collection of standards, plus a few of her own melodic creations. Now that she's added recording to her other accomplishments, Miss Stuart has finally decided in -which direction she wants to head. . "You must know your own limitations," she says. "I know I can write a light symphony but nothing major. Someday, I'll try it though — you must keep looking ahead. Another thing that is beyond me is rock-and-roll, although I like the good examples. "What I can do is film scores. I wrote the film score for David Niven's The Silken Affair,' and it was great fun. I'd like to do more of that, and I have some other record projects in mind. And someday, my husband and I —he's a writer—would like to try a Broadway musical." And so, if you've a yen for a musical career, you would be wise to follow Miss Stuart's advice—first, try many.things and, second, know your own limitations. It's advice that could work in other fields, too. Sammy Kaye has the answer for those who wonder why TV doesn't do what used to be so popular on radio—remote broad- casts from dance halls where top bands and singers were entertaining. "It's a matter of dollars and cents," says Kaye. "Remote broadcasts on radio cost very little. The engineer would merely plug a small piece of sending equipment into a socket installed by the telephone company and everything was ready. The total cost, including the engineer, announcer and telephone charges came to $200-$300. "But with TV it's different. To do a remote telecast, 3'ou need a tremendous quantity of mobile electronic equipment, tremendous lighting equipment, and a huge staff of engineers, floor directors and cameramen. It costs thousands of dollars to do just a local remote; to do one on a network costs a fabulous sum." That may be one reason why LP sales are booming. Everyone can have his own remote in his own living room—for peanuts. * * * DICK'S PICKS-A lovely melody, "Midnight Lace," gets four fine recordings—by David Carroll (Mercury), Ray Conniff (Colum bia), Ray Ellis (MGM) and Sid Feller (ABC-Paramount). Others: "Let's Forget It Now" (Johnnie Ray, Cadence); "Forgive" (Damita Jo, Mercury); "Long Before" (Fabian, Chancellor); "Bumble Bee' (Lavern Baker, Atlantic); "What Am I" (Toni Harper, RCA); "The Green Leaves of Summer" (Bud and Travis, Liberty); "Melodie d'Amour" (Joe Reisman, Roulette); "Alone at Last" (Jackie Wilson, Brunswick). Good new albums featuring girl singers: On UA, Barbara Russell makes her bow with "Swing With Me"; Capitol" has the lovely sounds of the lovely Nancy Wilson on "Something Wonderful"; Dot has cute little Dodie Stevens with "Over the Rainbow": two girls work with Andre Previn Trio" a bit more exciting than Capitol's "Dinah (Shore) Sings, Previn Plays"; Capitol has a good young folk singer in Cathie Taylor, with "The Tree Near My House." Two more pleasant light classical .orchestral releases: On Columbia, Thomas Schippers and the Columbia Symphony Orchestra play "Orchestral Music From the Opera," a collection of entr'actes, marches and sound; on Camden, Oivin Fjeldstad and the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra play Johann Strauss Jr., waltzes, always popular.

Seeing the cupboard is bare, he wonders, "Should I ask for a raise or not?" By DON GOODWIN "I want a raise." From the moment this thought buzzes into a man's head until, fulfilled or forgotten, it buzzes out again, it gives him no rest. His mind seethes with plots and strategems. How best to approach the boss? How much to ask for? What if he says no? Just considering these questions makes many men quake. Raises, after alt, are nice, but jobs are nicer, and if asking for the raise imperils the job . . well, "play it safe" is many men's motto: Don't ask. But does it imperil the job? If you're turned down, of course it does. An unspoken premise in business is: Once you ask for aj raise, be prepared to leave if you don't get it. Knowing this, a man has several courses of action. The best, naturally, is not to ask for the raise at all but to perform your duties so well no reasonable boss could resist giving one. If unreasonably he does resist, there are several more or less accepted ways of nudging him. * * * ONE is to ask his advice. "Is Idaville Officers Elected IDAVILLE — Class officers at Idaville high school have been elected for the coming year. They Seniors: Bob Marquess, pres.; Curt Grigsby, vice-pres.; Lois Pickett, sec.; Keith Guthrie, treas. Juniors: Butch Vannatta, pres.; there any way, Mr. X, that I can be of greater value to the company?" Another is to ask for more money for your "department" (more a shove than a nudge, if yours is a one-man department.) You, personally, may have no truck with such devices, but nevertheless it's true that a raise j obtained in a roundabout way is usually preferable to one solicited openly. The boss feels good because he gave you more money without being asked. You feel good because you're "appreciated." And anything that makes management and labor BOTH feel good is obviously worth shooting for. if hints fail and you must ask? For this last resort, here are some considerations dictated both by good form and good business. Complaining about money problems is bad taste, even if it's only to a' co-worker. But to work on your employer's sympathy—to cite your growing family or shrinking back account as a reason for deserving more money- is not only embarrassing, it's beside the point. Your only valid argument for a raise is that you're doing more work or better work. Accordingly, before you beard the lion, be sure he won't find bones to pick regarding your output. Be realistic. Know exactly how much you will settle for. and if he offers less, consider the consequences of quitting. Can you really get another job as good? Plan the interview to appear as spontaneous and unplanned as possible. Don't give ultimatums and don't expect him to decide on the spot. "Face" is important. Go in with a chip on your shoulder and his self-respect will demand that he j refuse.
