GILBERT'S "What Young People Think' A Deep-Seated Yearning For Culture Hides Behind Those Jeans And Levis By EUGENE GILBERT President, Gilbert Youth ' Research Co. Don't let the blue jeans and sneakers fool you, Our young people do have a yen for culture. This is the conclusion we drew after questioning -985 representative high school students.^"And it is- apparent even though" only 2 per cent attend the symphony regularly and only 6 per cent always go to the art museums. Their reasons for not pursuing the cultur.al arts more enthusiastically, however, were revealing; and Mom and Dad might do well to take heed. 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 youngsters 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 ttose who hadn't. Only 24 per cent of the boys .and 38 per cent of the girls had-seen a road show "I enjoy them very much," said Cyndie Stocker.'lS, of Claremont, Calif., "ever so much more than Modern Art takes a long look. to give and enjoy Russell Stover Candies "The World's Finest Candies" MADE OF WORLD'S FINEST INGREDIENTS .Always Fresh and So Delicious And only $1.40 Ib, EXCLUSIVELY AT TEMBERLAKE'S WHEN YOU WANT FINE CANDY Come to Timberlake's Gift Shop EVERY BOX YOU BUY HERE IS GUARANTEED FRESH By RICHARD BECHDOL and VALERIE COTNER The first band at the new Fairview junior h'igh school is, large, consisting of .41 members.' Ten are ninth graders; 17 are eighth graders and 14 are in the seventh grade. The band made its first public appearance last 'Tuesday at the dedication ceremony of the school.. Throughout the school year the Fairview band will play in a number of parades. The Fairview band will be merged with the Riley and Lincoln bands for parades, the first of which is the Halloween parade Monday. The members of the band are: Ninth grade: Edsel P r o u t y, Some wait on li ne at the opera. the movies of the same shows." As to "Littje Theater" performances, 74 ,per cent of the young people said there was 6ne in their city, but 71, per cent of the boys and 50 per cent of "the girls said they never attend any of the performances. They explained the plays usually were on week nights and, besides, the tickets were too expensive. Of all the art forms, ..ballet attracted: the smallest: teen-age audience. But again, the 16 per cent of the boys and 45 per cent of the girls^ who had attended generally .were enthusiastic. ^ -;-"Very "impressive' and ..teauti ful," commented Betty F. Chalkley, 17, of .Richmond, Va. Of the 82 per cent of the youngsters who said there was an art gallery or museum in their vicinity (and all of thera knew whether there was or was not), 51 per cent said they visit them sometimes, "23 per cent seldom went and 10 per cent never did: "On quite a few Sundays when there's a good exhibit," said Betty B. Best, 17, of Richmond, .'.'my aunt and I go." Betty's answer was signilicant. 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 ad^anc'emerit on their own. : - : V,.-.

And what about lectures—outside of school? Forty-one per cent of the youngsters had attended them and their reasons for going were well summed-up by Sandra "Spam, 17, of St. Louis: "To learn something I knew nothing' about," she explained. 1 As; a result of their own desires, 50 per cent of the youngsters-had :dpne some sketching-or painting. Only 37 per cent never had (13 percent did not say.) And 42 per cent, outside of school, had-written some poetry. What'did they do with the painting or poem? "Stuck it in" my drawer," said Anne Lansberg, 15, of Webster Groves, Mo., who did a painting. , "Threw it away, it was te'r- Tible," said Jamara Warhurst, 17, of Claremont, who also tried her hand at painting. Margaret E. Gates, 17; of Claremont has written many poems, she said, "to Venus, Satan, God, myself, a friend." But all of them are " kept carefully hidden."
