PAGE TWO THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA SUNDAY, DECEMBER U, 1961 GILBERT'S "What Young People Think" Would You Help a Cop? Kids Would By Eogene Gilbert Pres. Gilbert Youth P^search Co. Police officers trying to make arrests or put down disturbances in a number o£ cities this year have been attacked by crowds. They found, on calling for help, that many citizens eXher did nothing at all or sided with the wrong-doers. , This is such an ominous de velopment that we decided to ask the ' nation's young people how they would act in such cases. We found that about four out of five of you would aid a police officer in trouble. Most of those who said they would help said they would _ do this by calling for more policemen. "If we or others joined in the battle it would create more confusion; I'd-call for help," said Gail Roberts, 16, Oradell, N. J., one of the 77 per cent who said they .would call for more.police. Similar comment was made by Steve Mankin, 14, of Ft. Smith, Ark., who explained that police "are trained for that type • of work." . . • . Nearly 10 per cent of you said you would urge adults in the crowd to join the battle on the officer's side. As Kay Cooper, 14, of Kingsport, Tenn., explained: "I feel that everyone needs to do his part in keeping the law." I About 12 per cent "said they'd pitch right in on the embattled ' officer's side. Some Are Police Haters "There maybe wouldn't be time to get help," said Danny Allen, 15. of Tullahoma, Tenn. "I would help out as much as possible," said Wayne Painter, 16, of Hattsville, Md. Those .who said you would not help the police indicated either a dislike for police, or a feeling that it wasn't the citizen's responsibility .to get involved. Attacking* policemen is an alarming sign of the disregard for law and order, said Steve Shank, 17, of St. Louis. "Police wouldn't want your help," said BUI Dilley, 17, of Lyndhurst, Ohio.- In general, we found that the majority of you think that police do about right in handling or dis- "fhe police should be old enough I cipHning teen-agers. But there to handle their own problems," I were sizable groups that said po- lice were too tough and too soft. "They know from extensive data how to treat teen-agers," explained David Millman, 16, of St. Louis. And Paul Brian Polster, 15, of South Eucb'd, Ohio, noted: "Troublemakers always get what they deserve." Among the 23 per cent who said police were too tough was Carole Kunze, 13, of. Palo Alto, Calif, who said: "To them we have switchblades.' Police Too Soft? • An almost equal number, 22 per cent, thought police were too soft Typical comment, was made by Harlan S. Green, 15, of Olivette, Mo.,.and Bruce Anderson, 18, of New Brunswick.N.J. "If they'were-more strict, there would be less violence," said Harlan. "They permit rowdies to get away with too much," said Bruce. The majority of you feel, thai you do get special treatment from police. -• "Of course we do—we're kids with different standards and ideals not necessarily of an adult level,' said Paul Barnes, 14, of Palo Alto, Calif., one of the 61 per cent who think you are treated differently. Double standards exist not only between adults and juveniles bul on various economic levels anc ethnic groups," said Joseph Hairland, 17, of Levittown, Pa. "They think all teen-agers are delinquents," said Susan Stetson, 15, of South Euclid, Ohio. And another girl from South Eudid, Junie Davis, 15, came to this conclusion: "They are easier on teenage girls." QUESTIONS ASKED When it comes to discipling teenagers, do you think the police are too tough, just right, too soft? Do they treat teen-agers differently from other citizens? If so, in what ways? Would you and your friends come to the aid of a police officer who was outnumered in a street battle? What form would thisJielp take? Would you call for more policemen, coax adults in the crowc to join the batle on the officer's side, join in the battle yourself?

Passengers on the train—running on a secondary line the 24 miles from Soveria-Manelli to Catanzaro—were villagers going to the city for school, work or last-minute Christmas shopping. This was the last day of school before the holidays and was the weekly market day in the city. Police, firemen and soldiers worked under a steady rain 'to pull the dead and injured from the car.

Maybe if I had been sitting by a window I would have been killed, but I was standing in the aisle •with passengers around me." Rome, the government ordered an investigation into the crash, which occurred on a privately operated line, not the state- run major railway network. The motor.man of the train was held for questioning by police. Italy's worst railway disaster occurred in 1944, just before the end of World War n, when a train stalled in a tunnel near Potenza in southern Italy and 521 persons were suffocated by coal fumes. Gilbert Youth Service The party season's on. "Come over and help us decorate our Christmas tree." "It's open house on New Year s Day. Bring a date if you like." "There's a formal at the dub. Are you going?" If you have a heavy social calendar this holiday time, your clothes budget may be quickly devastated. Avoid it by keeping the glitter on the tree, and yourself in a collection of dresses that won't be dated after Christmas. Will the formal serve double duty at an early-spring school dance? It can, if you choose a dress without a mid-winter look. Pastels as well as dazzling white are effective now, turn spring ward later. The versatile knit-now adopts soft lines to fashion holiday in- formals with a texture you'd Swear was wool. Black dressed up with your most handsome costume jewelry goes partying with ease, returns for later school dates unruffled. Or select bright red, for now and later. Never underestimate the power of a jacket dress, particularly if the partner is a sleeveless sheath with a myriad of uses. Combine the sheath, for a change, with a spangled cardigan, or a lacy stole, and save its jacket for more tailored occasions. Christmas: time for the merry and the fashion-prepared. Someday a pollster with nothing better to do should try to find out how many men still tie their own bow ties. For some time now we have had the impression bow-tie-tiers were a diminishing species—almost, if not quite, as extinct as bow-tie-tieing wives. The snap-on and elastic-band set had, it seemed clear, taken over. Then comes this letter from a reader asking, of all things, how to tie a bow tie, as if HE, alone among men, was ignorant of the ancient art. Closer to the truth may be that he alone among men, CARES about being ignorant, but nonetheless, with apologies to those who couldn't care less, we will as briskly as possible set down the principles involved. * * 4 TAKE it step by step. Drape the tie around the neck. Then perform the familiar over and under motion, .but leaves the top end longer than the other. Next, make a loop, turning the longer end under the shorter one. Flop it over making a half knot. Hold this with one hand, then with the other. Now push the shorter end through the knot to form the second loop. You now have two perfectly shaped loops which can be pulled out evenly until the knot narrow or butterfly. Even maroon is O.K., if the "black tie" affair is in summertime and you're sporting a white dinner jacket.

Then it happened. The first two cars, one of them a self-propelled passenger car that pulled the other two, mr.ved over the bridge. The third one tore itself loose and from the edge of the bridge it plunged into the gorge. One passenger in the first car said: "It looked like a toy fall- ins. We watched horrified." The motorman brought the first two cars to .a crew members of San Bernardine, Calif. Called a pre-marriage ing project, the service launced through the efforts of the agency's director, Norman Paget, who views with alarm the hundreds of teen-age marriages in his home county. Aided by the guidance directors and teachers of four high schools and a teen-age advisory committee of students, he opened the service when the fall term began, and wondered if he would have any customers The first day of school, a girl came in. By mid-October, 27 teenagers had taken advantage of the service.

It neither should be so long that it covers the buckle nor so short that a swatch of shirt shows between tie and trousers. .If a tie clasp is used—and you'd be surprised how many Fashion Plates scorn them—it should be simple, tasteful and unobtrusive, attached midway down or lower. •Finally, neckwear is no place to express rugged individualism. If the tie is corny or offbeat, leave it on the rack. Q & A on P's & Q's (Q) "Must one interpret 'black tie' invitations literally?" J. S.

T/pfoflTwp.FFA Holds Meeting The Tipton 'township FFA chapter met December 15 at the high school with president Erie Lockhart presiding. Queen hand pins were passed out to David Brock, Phil Rush, J. P. Williamson, Bob Gallaway, Victor Bowman,,Junior Guy, Dick Elburn and Tom Abney. . Chapter farmer pins were given to Randy Nead, David Rush, Jay Lbckhart,- Norman Helvie and Jim Cundiff. David Rush explained the plan for the sale of seeds. Books and order .blanks were passed out to each member. Reporter—Randy Nead "Why, we'll live with my family," said one girl. "Is that a sound way to start married life?" probed the counselor. "I'm going to drop out of school and get a job," a boy stated. The counselor showed him that minus higher education, he would inevitably spend his life in a 'low- income job. During the discussions, the couple is brought face to face with the key question: Why are you getting married? In many cases, the answer is: Escape. "My father never says one good thing to me," said a girl who was going to drop out of school to be married. Teen-agers may think of marriage because, they're dissatisfied with their lives. A girl with no vocational or academic goals doesn't do well in school, drops out, and runs to marriage because there's nothing else for her. A boy feels he can't measure up to his classmates, drops out of school, gets a job in a gas station, and grabs at marriage as at a lifeline. Without "this new counseling service, Paget feels he would be seeing the products of teen marriages years later at Family Service. He has seen them. One was a boy who walked in and said, "I have four kids. I don't want to be married any more." Chief complaint of the young wives is that their husbands pay little, attention -io their families. They want to be "out with the boys." Actually, these husbands are still in adolescence. They weren't ready for family responsibilities when they married. . The teen-age advisory counci' helped -with the statistical work, and acted as sounding board whta promotional material was prepared. "They tore out first brochure to pieces," reports Paget.
