Betty Chalkley, 17, of Richmond, Va.,' said she never had attended a symphony <but "would love to;" The trouble is, she said, ''I can never get anyone to go with " Only a handful of the youtigsters questioned felt like Thomas Kapp, 17, of Miami Beach, Fla —"I hate classical music." Boys appeared less interested in concerts than girls. Of the 52 per cent who said-they never attended, 3 per cent were boys and 41 per cent girls. Attendance at road company productions of Broadway shows revealed the same teen-age attitude enthusiasm among those who had seen'them, and at least a desire to see them among those who hadn't Only 24 per cent of the boys and 38 per cent of the girls had seen a road 'show.

As to "Little Theater" "per formances, 74 per "cent of th young people said there was on in their_.city,'but 71 per cent o the boys and 50 per, cent of th girls said they never attend ,an of the performances. They_,explained the plays.,usual y were on week nights'and, be sides, the tickets were, too ex >ensive: Of all the art forms, ballet at traded, the smallest 1een-age audience. But again, the 16, pei cent of the boys and 45 per cen of the girls who had attendee generally were enthusiastic. "Very impressive ami beauti ful," commented Betty F. Chalk ley, 17, of Richmond, Va.

Betty's answer was significant.- Time -and again the young people indicated ,that if more adults showed interest, more teen-agers would take an interest^ in culture. One of-the most revealing results of the survey, was the" percentage, of teen-agers who undertake cultural -advancement on their own.
