The - admission of Red -China? Con- I tinuance of the office of secretary - general? The very value of the '• U. N. itself? ! We put those-questions to America's young people in RUT most re- cent survey and came up with 1 some answers that -prove, if noth- - ing else, that teen-agers do their ".'. own thinking. They're against nu- ; clear testing, for the U. N. •' A plurality (48 per cent) but not '. a majority of the youngsters told " us they would recommend that •" nuclear testing be halted. A small - number (13 per cent) said they ; favor continued testing. The others - felt it is all right to continue under ~ some sort of controls.

Four out of five youngsters told us they favor continuation of one man as secretary -general. The others thought a committee-type leadership, could do a better-job. "A group; of more than one would create a stalemate in the U. N. and nothing would be accomplished," said Alan Banov, 15, of Charleston, speakingfor the one man faction. > ' ' • "Too many cooks spoil the soup," answered Carol Heller, 17, of Lincoln, Neb., leaning on an old proverb. A much closer division of opinion came when we asked the youngsters if they think the U.. N. is capable of'keeping the peace. While 53 per cent said .yes, a large minority (42 per cent) answered no. "As long as there is some place where men can discuss their problems the peace can be preserved," said Richard Lapin, 15, of Charleston hopefully.' "The U. N. is the main reason why war hasn't broken out already," maintained Mac Zachem, 17, of Greenup, Ky. the 'engineer can- make or break :a''recordiag' session;" 1 . v - Miss Stich-Randall;',a Connecticut-born-soprano now_,with the Metropolitan, has recorded in many cities around the world, so she really has 'good reasons for her beliefs.

They are the dictators^ Generally, they know what' they are doing, but once in a while you get one who'doesn't." ; , In her 10-year career, Miss Stich-Randall has sung throughout Europe, Asia and South America. But don't ask her about .any of the places she's sung. "I never see anything except the hotel room and the theater," she says. "Opera is ..very, demanding, particularly my roles.

Inc. 49 Gilbert Youth Service In one of the most heterogeneous areas of New York City, an intense young man devotes his daily—and nightly—hours to a person-to-person program aimed at spotting youngsters before they tangle with the law, and at bring- ,ing them into a constructive set- |tlement house program. ! Across the street—from the Edu! cational Alliance, where Larry Zicht works in the Bowery, there are well-kept apartments. But they have no recreation facilities. Out in the street a dope pusher is at work. "Am I in your way?" Larry asks him. "Stay where you are. I'll just work around you." In the comer pool hall congregate kids suspicious of organized I recreation. Larry shoots pool with ithem. Perhaps he takes two or three out to a mavie or for a coke. Personal confidence has to be established. In the summer he may find a gung making macabre plans in a nearby park. Casually he says, "How'd:you guys like to go swimming at Long. Beach?" Off they go, their plans at least temporarily sidetracked. Many times it's a long walk for New Books At Local Library Hamberg, Principles of a Growing Economy. Gavian, Our Changing Social Order.

The kids stay as a group at first if they do come into the building. They're afraid of other youngsters. Unification comes slowly. The steel drum band is a help. The gym is appealing, though its supports get in the way of the play- rs. ' Larry sells responsibility along with the program. "These kids think they're nothing. They're not responsible even to themselves. Thev say to themselves, All right, I'm" nothing, that's what they think, so I'll be mean." Change in values comes slowly. A youngster has expressed interest in dramatics, and rehearsal is from. 5 to 6 p.m. He shows up at 6, and it's all over. "He has to learn responsibility, he has to show up on time." "We a'sk him to pay a membership fee. We say, what can you pay? We're giving you something. What can you give me?" Thus, the philosophy of Operation Street Corner, unique to a private-social agency in the city, has pulled in the components of 18 gangs, numbering 250 kids, since the project started five years ago. . „,., e in Mexico, I took la guide book along, but-1 found the work so hard and the altiture so difficult, to cope with that I wound up reading the guide book in my hotel room. T "In Japan, I was determined'to get some of those lovely silks, but I wasn't even-able to get out aiid shop." ' , ' V One of the most intriguing albums to come along in some months is Decca's "Fifty Years of Movie Music." This is the work of Jack Shaindlin (who also plays the piano on the record) and he glorifies music used to accompany movies, starting with the earliest and bringing it down to the jazz-flavored'"Man With the Golden Arm." Shaindlin, incidentally, suffers from claustrophobia and therefore can't ride in small elevators. This once cost him a contract to do a film score—he wouldn't ride to the 22nd floor of a building to sign the papers. Helen Noga, Johnny Mathis' manager, has taken young Mike Clifford and is proceeding virtually to rebluild him. Of course, she hasn't changed his voice, which you can sample on Mike'i latest Columbia release, "Bom bay." Miss Noga changed Mike's hair —he doesn't sing rock-'n'-roll, so she had him cut it shorter. She changed his clothes — "I used to dress sloppy, and I loathed white shirts and ties; now I like them Corn Exports Good You can't'be a Beau Brummel with; beat-up brogues-a lesson he'« yet to learn. BY DON GOODWIN When a ,man wears a $150 suit and $7 shoes, why do people invariably notice the shoes and ignore the. suit? That's something for the head shrinkers to ponder, but it does point, up a moral: In putting on the dog, don't overlook your dogs. - '•-£-. Shoe savvy involves .two 'elements—money and tasteH..uckily, a shortage of the former needn't scuttle the- latter, if a man is discriminating and watches the sales. It's wise, from a money stand- joint alone, to buy the best shoes pour budget can stand. The jerry- juilt' types don't last. Good shces, if cared for, will pass muster,, for many months, especially when relieved.: frequently with another ..„..„ -------- m w cut of the young singers, is the sized son of a former trumpet play for Tommy Dorsey and Benny Goodman Because of to back- ahead" in show business. "But," he adds, "I don't want to'be a MALE POLISH Mir. "Cared for" means regular polishing, and the use of shoe trees. The latter;, incidentally,, should be used' immediately after the shoes are worn, while the --leather is still warm and resilient.' Economics aside, good shoes are advisable because of the peculiar way people judge their fellows. If a man is seedy from neck to ankles but resplendently shod, he's marked as a man of. charicter who disdains showiness. But let a Beau Brummel appear in beat-up brogues and the verdict is unanimous: he's a phony. * * * PEOPLE used to feel they could- not wear brown shoes with a dark blue suit. Today they both can and do. In fact, dark brown Oxfords are appropriate with' any business suit. Ideally, of course, it's nice to have both brown and black shoes. tn this case reserve brown for light gray and brown suits, and wear black with charcoal and dark slue. For' business wear avoid two:one models, suedes, loafers and crepe soles. Formal wear calls :6r black calf Oxfords or .patent leather pumps/depending on the occasion. ' . • * * WHAT shoe fashions can you expect in '62? Pretty much what you saw in ''61: slim, light-lined shapes, interpreted in textured leaihers. The new grains range from-deep long ones that look like tree bark, to light, barely discernible ripples. The light grains, which take a high polish, are coming in,more and more in business shoes. -They ' are, of course, always proper in the casual category. The slip-on department broadens each season. There are both plain and fancy versions, and some versions are both plain and fancy. One simple but solid loafer features a plain toe and a long tongue with perforations around the top. Others are spreading out in wing tips, and one group has a long center seam from the end of the toe on up to the top of the high tongue. The' strap-and-buckle school is well represented in slip-ons. The variations include crossover straps, sabot .straps and straps that are carried from one sole edge to the other. What's the toe style for '62? There isn't any . . . that is, there isn't any one toe siyle. Generally, toes are low and narrow, but they come to a variety of ends—pointed, rounded and even squared off.

CHICAGO (AP) — Light yearend liquidation held grain futures prices generally on the defensive this week as commercial demand virtually dried up for the holiday period. Both losses and gains we're within i. one-cent range except for a couple each of rye and soybean contracts which were influenced largely by speculative short covering and liquidation. A fairly good volume of export business in corn was bandied during, the week and with a slackening of hedge selling .the grain maintained a steady range and finished with the only general advance on the exchange. j At the end of the week, wheat I was V4-1. cent a bushel lower than a week ago, March. ?2.07»/i-%; corn %-% higher, March ?1.10 3 /4- BOOKMOBILE ROUTES The library bookmobile schedule for the first week of the new year follows: Tuesday, New Waverly school, 9:30. until 1; town, 1:30 until 2.

Friday: Galveston elementary school, grades two, three, four and six. %; oats unchanged to % lower, |March 71%; rye 1% lower to.'/i higher, March $1.3% soybeans $y g lower to % higher, January $2.433644. Chief interest the latter part of the week centered:'on the volume df - soybeans that' would be tendered on January contracts in the pit. A large open interest, in that contract caused some traders to believe acceptances- of the actual 'commodity would be few and that tenders • would circulate free; ly, holding prices under pressure for the nearby months. First notices totaled'1.2 million bushels which dealers said was an indication that there is no concern about the availability of supplies .to meet requirements any- where. However, the notices were not as great as some dealers had expected and some, liquidation may have been withheld for further developments. Hedge selling in the com pit was well absorbed by a little improvement in the volume of hedge lifting which appeared to be linked with overseas business. Otherwise the market was guided largely by adjustment of yearend positions for income tax purposes and the possibility that selling of grains by producers may pick up somewhat in the new year. Scouts Hold Party Boy Scouts Troop 47 held its annual Christmas skating party Thursday at the skating rink at Logansport. Abouf"75 members and guests attended. Pop corn and punch was served, with Scout Master Don Wells and assistant Scout Master Paul Klipinger in charge.' The next meeting will be held Tuesday. A complete shake-up of the patrols will be announced. All members are asked to attend. Scouts are asked to bring .small gifts and get well cards for'Rich- ard Blackketter, who lost his hand in a hunting accident. BRUSH DULLNESS AWAY If you set your hair with beer or egg white to give it body, you may find that it leaves a slight dulling film on, the hair. Just brush hair vigorously; the dullness will disappear, and setting -will remain firm. Maybe when I'm 25." DICK'S PICKS—The dearth of releases of the post-Christmas | season make for a slim week. Best is The Chordettes with "Theme for 'Goodbye Again' " on Cadence. Others: "Lazy River" (Toni Harper, RCA); "Why Don't -You Write Me?" (Ray Peterson, Dunes); "The Door Is Open" (Tommy Hunt, Scepter); -" (Dick On the second take the understudy not ed me but eye, Then the •You Better Believe It" Jaruso, MGM); "White Fang" (Soupy Sales, Reprise): "Joey Baby (Anita and The So-and Sos, RCA). Some good recent folk song al- bums-ron Elektra, Theodore Bikel sings "A Harvest of Israeli Folk Songs"; on Washington, Ritchie and Oscar Brand team up for "Courting and Riddle Songs"; on MGM, "Martha Schlamme in Concert" features songs from, around the world! RCA's " 'Ave a Go Wivthe Buskers" is Cockney songs, recorded in London; Elek- ja introduces Judy Collins, who sings her songs under the title "A Maid of Constant Sorrow." Students of classical piano will be intrigued-by'three recent albums, featuring some all-time keyboard masters. .RCA's "Keyboard Giants of the Past" has recordings by such past greats as Paderewski, Lhevinne and Kapell. Angel, in its Great Recordings of the Century series, has Artur Schnabel playing Schubert's Sonata in D Major. A contemporary giant, Artur Rubinstein, is featured in RCA, playing Chopin's Concerto No. 1. scene was cut from the picture because they decided it was too gruesome." It was one of those runaway movies, a U.S.-German-Italian co- jroduction with Maria Schell. 'And I," moans Cliff, "should have run the other way." Now many people saw the film Cliff can't forget. "How many actors have been asked to bite a ive octopus?" he asks. "I still lave nightmares about the octo- TIGER YEAR TOKYO (AP)-The New Year, 1962, will be tiger time..in -Asia. It is supposed to bring action, fortune and change and to be lucky for lovers.- You get to be a tiger by observing your first, 12th or any birthday divisible by 12 in 1962. ' THE FILM WAS MADE on the island of Mana, in the Adriatic sea. They didn't tell Cliff about Mana, either. "I was in New Guinea during the war—and-Mana made New Guinea look like the French Riviera. "It was really just a rock. No inhabitants except rats. We lived in adobe huts and instead of counting sheep I shot rats all night. It was like the Island of Stromboli in the Ingrid Bergman movie except we had no volcano. Mana was like working inside a volcano's crater." But when Cliff laughingly refers to himself as "the last of the aging, angry young men" it has nothing to do with being squirted or upstaged by an octopus. It is because he prefers film acting, (currently in "The Interns") but only television, ironically, permits him the variety of 'roles he personally finds satisfying as an actor. Says Cliff: "I like to play everything to the walls of my agents who think I'm making a mistake because I don't create an image.They think a TV series will help::me create that image. But I'd be bored playing the same cat every week. When I act I like to get something out of it" In/the trade Cliff is way up there as a craftsman. 'How fellow __ says. movie producers and directors with guts to try what TV tries." Also irking Cliff, who interrupts film work to return to the stage, are stage-bred film stars who shun the footlights. "Marlon Brando says he could not sustain a performance on the stage for more than three months.. ' I don't know why he says that Brando, or any actor, shcp.u'd practice discipline. As an actor, he should be able to sustain a-performance for'three years. I don't know what actors mean when they say they can be good for only- three months." Well, Brando probably wouldn't have taken a bite out of an octu- pus, either. Not without mustard, at least.
