PAGE TWENTY-TWO THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA SUNDAY, DECEMBER 17, IMt GILBERT'S "What Young People fhint" Nuclear Testing Is A Must, Teen-Agers Say ' By Eugene Gilbert President,-Gilbert Youth . Research Co. America's teen • agers, plainly well informed on issues in the current debate over nuclear weapons testing, generally favor resumption of tests by the.United States. A nationwide cross-section sur vey showed 68 per cent of the nation's teen-agers felt test resumption by the U.S. was a wise move, but there; was some difference in the viewpoints of boys and girls. Of the 452 boys questioned, 77 per cent-approved of U.S. test resumption, but only. 79 .per cent of the 459 girls' questioned 'agreed. "We;hold a nuclear lead and must-maintain it," reasoned Eoger Way t 17, of Lincoln, Neb. "They: leave us no.choice," said 16-year- old John Nelson of Hibbing, Minn. Some, like 17-year-old Bobby Woolery of Russell, Ky., were in favor of underground testing but not of tests in the atmosphere. Equally as interesting as their views was the fact that only 1.3 per cent of the boys and 5.4 per cent of, the girls didn'.t have opinions. The teen-agers were widely divided as to whether they thought Russia's tests would have any drastic results, but only 20 per cent of. the young people said today's war-talk had caused them to change-their plans for the future. It Makes One Think "If a person changes, his plans," said Geraldine Cooper, 17, of Hib- bling, "it means he's -either a pessimist or a coward " Another 17-year-old, Jane Wallis Cox of Russell, said "talk,, of nuclear war hadn't made her change any future plans, "but it has start- .ed me. to thinking." In answer to whether they thought there would be any drastic after effects of Russian testing, 31 per cent of the girls felt there would be none, compared with a majority (51 per cent) of the boys. Again, only 3 per cent of both boys and girls had no opinion. "I think the world will still turn even after.many such tests," said 15-year-old Bill Grimball' of Charleston, S. C. How about the fallout problem? "Scientists have proven that genetic after effects will come from the fallout," said Penny Olson, 17, of Lincoln, Neb "Radiation will affect our newborn babies," said Jtoleen Jacobs, 17, of New Orleans. "It will probably .affect crops," said Andy Mirowitz,:16, .of-Miami,Fia/ " /•'••-.<•[. -J"i\/-- .-'.. Sfop. Russia, •• Somehow . Sixty-lour'per .can't of the teem agers fell Russialshould be forced, somehow, ".'toVstqp testing. But few agreed with., the one-word solution of 17-year-old-Frank. Seel of, Charleston: "war;" or with 'the course advocated : .by. 17-year-old Joann 'Sundberg of Kibbling: "Give them- an ultimatum—and if it is ignored, give them the consequences." Most felt the Soviets should be dissuaded through the U.N., through increased U S^propaganda broadcasts to the Russian people or thtough pressure applied by the neutral nations .Meanwhile;-said Saul'Pearlman, 16, of Charleston, "Everyone sbdukLbuild his own .fallout shelter,"- . • ..

Do you think the Russians should be; forced; to stop .testing?: Do you think the radioactive fallout from these bombs will affect us? Has the talk of _nu;;ear war changed your plans for tiie future? Medgryville Yule Tree ^Decorated By CHICO HEALD Tuesday the Sunshine Society decorated the school Christmas tree. It was donated by Kermil Riggs and delivered by Floyc Heald. . Last Friday was a real big day for the Seniors We received our Senior Pictures,; -that we • have been anxiously awaiting for so long a time. (Twelve years to be exact.) I/hey arrived just in time for Christmas and .we are all very pleased. Last week end the Indiana state Debaters' Conference was leld at Purdue University. There were representatives from schools from all over.the state in attendance. Those : representing. Medaryville were: Linda Shelton, )ah Clawson, Chico Heald, Patti Jackson,, and Patty .Buczek. ~ ;'Senate was composed of one ^Senator from each high- school. JThe members entered, discussed';^ vetoed; ..rejected, and a'p- iroved.'bills','that were written by :hese students.-•' • ; The House" of ."Representatives; was divided . into two Houses, composed..of-discussion- groups. The theme of their discussion was: "Should the..Federal Government equalize educational opportunities-.in public -elementary and. secondary schools?" The jHouse members discussed the I problems concerned, then: causes, and proposed a solution. On Saturday, we attended a luncheon with Professor Richard Murphy, Department of Speech, Illinois University, as our guest speaker. MALE POLISH Wedding-Gift Etiquette Varys On Situation The sender of this gift should have read today's "Male Polish." Brion Hylond's Career Unfolds Wide Opportunities For Travel Gilbert Youth Service His photographs show, a boy with brooding eyes and long blond hair gazing with intense meaning at his record fans. But off camera, at 11 .in the morning ,only the drooping hair is the same. Brian Hyland in real life has round light-blue. eyes.a gentle smile, and an air of detachment from ' the goings-on of .the rock and roll world that have made his records hits. He talks more about touring than singing. "I like to travel. I'm going to get a big map and put pins 'in it to show where I've been. This weekend I'm going to Florida. I've never been there. There's some promotion scheduled for Miami, so I'l' have a chance to see the| place." The usual bill of fare of four shows a-night leaves little time for the 17-year-old to sightsee, however. On a month-long junket to Japan last year, he had just two days off for personal touring. The boy whose musical views on an itsy-bitsy bikini brought him sudden success with the teen-age! record buyer thinks he mightj, someday like to act. "But not:BOW," interrupts his manager. "Put him in a movie now, and he's lost his record, fans. The thing to do is to keep up the recordings and the -.tours, then, in a couple of years, polish up his act to appeal to a more sophisticated night club audience. Then after that, he might think .of studying dramatics." The young singer- still seems a bit surprised when he thinks of the bikini blast. "My brother heard it first. He. was at the barber shop when it came over the radio. -That night I heard it at supper. And then the phone began to ring. We Brian Hyland have an unlisted number now. The poor people who hav.e our old number, they just go crazy." While he's being primed for his next swing to teen-age hops across the country, Brian is thinking of sports cars and his friends who have joined the Marines. "I think I'd like the Marines." His . manager cuts in swiftly: "Brian can .go on singing for a Inng.time. He can do ballads, he plays .the guitar. He's not limited to rock and roll. "But right now, we're reaching for the kids from 11 to 14—the girls—they're the ones who do most of the record buying. When they see Brian, they're thinkm; of .him as their boy friend. The Japanese girls were the same way. Crazy over him." Brian listens to all Ihis, but still with an air of unconcern. Whatever his thoughts are, his life has been planned for him as he goes through the acts necessary to keep him a star. Own Clinic Helps Young People Solve Problems Realistically Gilbert Youth Service The letter was short, and was written on school notebook paper. It read: "This is a desperate plea for help. I am in the -llth grade, siid am very short for my age. The kids stand around on the corner making fun of me. Sometimes tney call me dreadful names. I am very self-conscious, and very depressed. Can you help me?" The plea was addressed to the Adolescent Clinic at New York Hospital, and the letter writer in short order became a patient, to receive specialized medical and psychological help. Such services for teen-agers were not available a decade ago. But now, with adolescent clinics functioning in a dozen or more cities, any perplexed teen-ager can come in for help to one of them —by himself. These clinics have come into being because it's recognized that £ teenager is very likely to -be an intense worrier. Disappointments in school, lack of achievement in making friends, can throw him. If he's too -tall or too short or too fat or too skinny, he's in an agony of embarrassment. If his face is perpetually breaking out, he's humiliated. And in most cases, "she" can be substituted for "he." Parents nonplussed fay the turbulence of the teen-ager's, emotions, by his .mercurial ups and downs, or T)y his seeming indifference, don't know where to turn. From a medical point of view, the teen-ager is too old for the pediatrician's office, and the general physician may be too well- known for the youngster to feel he can-trust him with his confidences, or too unfamiliar with the phychology of the adolescent. In the anonymity of an adolescent clinic, the teen-ager can pour out his troubles.

LONGS CLEANERS LITTLES CLEAN-O-RAMA MR- HAPPY BURGER that growth and development problems were the primary medical reasons for visiting the-clinic. In the phychological area, adjustment reactions to adolescence brought in the largest single 'group of patients, most of them boys. These reactions were often hid- len behind headaches, stomach disorders, or behavior, difficulties at home and at school. In the privacy of the clinic .office, these youngsters were' usually able to express the mixed;feelings -and hostilities they ;fett^and be given a hand toward handling then- problems realistically. Parents are interviewed separately at the clinic, and : also gain insight into their teen-agers'' behavior. Comfort for the adolescent who physically doesn't fit the norm in growth .is given by the clinic head at Children's Medical Center, Dr. J. Roswell Gallagher. He has developed a s lentific measuring system which can predict the teenager's eventual height, which he may reach at 15 or not until 20. When he counsels these patients, he can explain that each adolescent has his own growth timetable, which cannot be altered or hurried. The simple art of handing on this knowledge does worlds of good for the harried teen-ager.

One ,o£ the incidental eddies produced by this marital, maelstrom, may be your own indecision whether to buy a gift. You' ap-' predate the invitation and' all that, but what's expected, .of you? In many cases, nothing. The bride's parents, or groom's parents, or somebody, wants you to know Mary corralled Bill at last and you're invited to the wedding. Since the reception isn't mentioned, the invitation boils down-to-an announcement;; piure and'simple, and a gift is optional. If you're invited .to the reception, of course, a gift is in order, especially if you attend. If you're a close friend of Bill or Mary or their families, sentiment naturally will dictate a gift. "And if either of them is marrying into your immediate family, a gift is mandatory. . -»**''-"' THERE are two -kinds- of wedding gifts—safe • and unsafe. -To begin with, the latter. - ~ > •Don't' give a Picasso unless (1) Picasso> fits the. decor, .of. .the couple's future home and (2) you New Books At Local Library Diehl, The- Moderns; Salkind, The Contest Problem Book;-Sawyer, What is Calculus About?; Beckenbach, An Introduction to Inequalities; Pillsbury, Best of Bake-off Collection; "Joy, The Queen of the Shakers; Lang, Old Age in America; Williams, Contraband Cargoes; Chase, The Carthaginian Rose; Goff, Shelters and Sanctuaries; Hindus, House Without a Roof; Brown, Conscience in Politics; Burns, John Kennedy; Merritt, Financial Independence .

Ideally, the gift should be both useful and ornamental, personal and impersonal. (Example: plain linen leans to the impersonal; monogrammed linen is just, right.)
