PAGE TWO GILBERT'S "What Young People Think" Prom on Its Way Out? Weil, Maybe Rv TCntrnnn T nilkm.f . > -t m THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PKESS, LOGANSPORT. INDIANA By Eugene I. Gilbert Pres. Gilbert Youth Research Co, What's happening to the high school prom? There has been criticism in recent years about the trend tow'aro super posh proms with big name bands ,new formals for the girls and tuxedos for the boys. But in some places, the prom is a school-centered event, with the ball taking place in the gymnasium (properly gussied v up for the occasion), tickets generally kept at a modest level. Questioning nearly 1,000 teenagers across the nation, we found most of you think that the prom now is less popular than it used to be. Nearly 42 per cent said so as against 36 per cent who thought proms are more popular. The others just don't seem to know. Most Plan To Go Bearing this out was the assertion from 70 per cent of you that it's no tragedy if you don't go to the prom. "It really isn't a status symbol or anything to go to the prom," commented Bill MacDowell, 15,- of Oakland, Calif. "You aren't looked down on' if you don't." ' We found, however, that 70 per cent of those interviewed do plan to go prom. to this year's Why? Because it's widely accepted that a prom can be a lot of fun. At least, that's the lestimony from those who attended the las't prom at their school. Ninety per cent said they enjoyed themselves. Among those who have no plan to attend this year's prom, the reasons range from objections to j Callaro, 18, also of Lini oln. the expense to the plain and simple fact they weren't invited. One attraction of the prom is the opportunity to dress up. Nearly 87 per cent of you said you like getting ir.lo fancy clothes. "It's really a good experience," said Mary Holm, 15, of Lincoln, Neb. "I'm not ashamed of my mon- cey suit," wisecracked Darrell "I feel proud of myst,? and it makes me feel grown up—practically," said Eril Berg of New York City. Among the nay-sayers was Mary Michele Stone, 17, of Durham, N. C., who said, "Evening dresses are too expensive; can't really dance good all dressed up." While there have been cries about rising expense, this doesn't seem to be too much of an ob stacle. Only one out of five of yo thought proms arg too expensive But Sally Reiner, 16, of Brook lyn, said. the. prom at her schoo comes to $23.50 a couple. An< Fern Freenberg, 17, of Philadel phia, rernarked that "including dress, hair, tickets and breakfast it is too much." "Our's was only 75 cents," sale Denise Bischoff, 15, _ of Ogden Utah.. The boys 'seemed a bi; reticent about this. Dean.. Utoher, 16, of Eagle Grove, Iowa ,said it "depends on if you have a girl and go to ex tremes." We also, asked whether you would go to the prom if it'were not socialy important. Fifty-five per cent said yes, and nearly '3< per cent said : they just didn' know. ' , What about those who'are un able to attend because they can' afford it or because they're no asked'.' Sixty-five per cent of you agreed that such' people have hurl feelings. We decided to give you a chanci to sound off about proms. In the list of things that you said you didn't like about them, were: "Well, sometimes girls dance with girls," said Bob Moran, 16 of Jackson -Heights, N.Y. "Boys go into a corner and hide." "They are too. competitive in dress and even in being asked,' said Margi Eakhouse,-16, Winnet ka, 111. "Not enough entertainment"— Judy Bunce, 16, Pocatello, Idaho "Not enough chairs for everyone to sit on"—Gail Kuwana, 16, Honolulu. CAPSULE CAREER YIPS-7: So YOU Want Nurse? So You Want to Be a Nurse? Educational Qualifications: Three types of programs: diploma '(three-year program conducted by hospital schools of nursing);associate (newer program lasting two years offered in junior and community colleges); baccalaureate (usually four, but sometimes five years of study in college or university). Graduation from high 'school required for all three programs, and' some schools require demonstrated competence in science and mathematics. Personal Qualifications: Genuine interest in people, desire to care for the sick and injured, dependability, patience, human understanding, good physical and mental health. Advantages: Great demand for professional registered nurses, 585,001) needed by 1970 to maintain the present ratio; future outlook especially favorable for nurses with graduate training in education and administration (growing demand for specialists with master's or doctor's degree, need for more supervisors and more teachers of nursing); variety of positions open outside hospital nursing. Disadvantages: Hard physical work expecially for the beginner; hospitals frequently under-staffed; salaries greatly improved, but still not high. Salaries: Minimum starting salaries of general duty nurses in large-city hospitals range from $55-$100 a week. Head nurses average 10 to 19 per cent more, and supervisors and instructors, 20 to 31 per cent more. In special fields, private duty r.urses $14-518 a day; public health, nurses, $4,408 annually in public agencies and $4,042 in private agencies; office nurses, $3,600. Prettiest Miss Likes, Boys, But Gilbert Youth Service It's a fortunate thing that pixie- like Jean Leslie Allen has never depended on boys. Now that she's won the national junior miss contest, the daughter of a Providence, R. I., pediatrician finds she's getting a stream of phone calls from boys who "just want to go out with a title." On the other, hand, the boys' she would enjoy dating don't call because of her sudden fame. Fortunately, Jean has her feet very much on the ground, and continues to enjoy the houseful of ware Never Had It This Rough Gilbert Youth Service When teen-agers in New York City's schools witness a Shakespearian production, they're quite likely to unnerve the cast by responding in unexpected places, in unexpected ways. Actors with the New York Shakespeare Festival Company say their student audiences root for the vil- lian, jeer the hero. In a production of Richard HI, the spectators were furious when Richard was killed. In general; teen-agers have much stronger rooting sentiments for characters in a play than do adult audiences. Instead of viewing a play objectively, the lose themselves completely in it. While this reaction is a source of satisfaction to the-players, they are taken aback because subtleties of presentation, the things an actor strives for, are lost on the students. These audiences respond primarily to the elemental drives 'in a play production, and ignore the fine shadings of a character portrayal.- . The Shakespeare company gives 80 performances annually in New York schoo^ with the board of education sponsoring this dramatic exposure. The company ^ is iden^ itcal with the group that performs' outdoors -in Central Park in the summer. ' Besides the Shakespeare offerings, the American Theater Wing for three years has given plays in 67.high and junior high schools, donating the services of its students for the school presentations. kids ever present in a family of five children. She's noticed that when her brother, a student at Brown University, brings dates over, that she's subjected to more scrutiny than usual, but she remains unconcerned. Jean knows the kind of boys she likes—and doesn't like. "I can't stand preppy boys. They all look alike. The Harvard haircut, the identical sports clothes. Boys my age try so hard to conform. Thai's why I prefer boys a little older." The college scholarship Jean has won as the result of the contest will be a big assist to the doctor's family, and to Jean, who now has a partial scholarship in a local parachial school. Though she has spent two summers helping out in her father's office, she leans to teaching rather than medicine. "I feel medicine is still a man's field. Also, if I invested all those years in medical training, and then gave it up to have a family, • I'd feel as though I'd taken a man's place away from him." Set At Jr. Highs The dates of Recognition Days at Fairview and Riley junior high schools were announced Wednesday by the principals of the two schools. The Recognition Day program at Fairview will be held at 9:30 a.m. on Monday, June 4, in the gymnasium, according to Norbert Kniesly, principal.

MALE POLISH Obnoxious Behavior Gets Attention—The Wrong Kind 'Ihis attracts addition all righl—But not the kind most mon desire. By DON GOODWIN There are many ways by which 'i man can polilely attract attention to himself. He can run for president, climb Everest, make a mint, beget quintuplets or live to be 100—to name only a few. Considering this wealth of attention—getters, all of them more or less proper, it's surprising how many people resort to improper ways of saying, "1/ook at me!" Take the man who enters a crowded elevator with a companion and starts crowing— fortissimo—about his romantic conquests. The friend wilts. The others are embarrassed or con- lemptuous. Take the man who sees an acquaintance two blocks away and shouts "Hi-i Haa-r-ry!" All eyes :urn on Harry and Harry feels ike sinking into the sidewalk. TAKE the man who Jeans icross neighbors at a lunch counter to regale a friend with okes or accounts of his athletic irowess. His tie droops in a leighbor's soup and nobody is amused. Take the man who browbeats a vailrcss. saleslady or anyone else serving him. Rabbit-shy with his spouse and he-men, he hits out at xjople who can't hit back. Take the rude and raucous comrades-in-arms who stroll down the street four abreast. Take the sidewalk whistlers, crooners and caterwaulers, all provoking attention, all making a noisy world noiser. NOT that there aren't also quiet ways to be obnoxious. There are, and grooming in public is one of them. Clean fingernails, for example, are to be admired, but whipping out a fingernail file at every odd moment is not. Publicly combing one's hair is also to be shunned. One should avoid, too, those actions suggestive of getting in and out of bed—scratching and yawning. One shouldn't point or stare, wear outlandish clothes, chomp one's gum, crack one's knuckles or attract attention by other nervous habits. WHY not .say it? A man shouldn't be conspicuous in public. This doesn't mean you have to fade into the landscape or— nasty word—coniform. Too many of us, no doubt, are overly com- formily-minded as it is. It's simply a reminder that individualism is best served by achievement and character—not by ba<i manners. Bernard Shaw once advised a young Wend (o "always be polite, particularly to (hose whom you dislike, because politeness is a mark of superiority," and nobody followed the crowd less than (his Irish genlleman. Q & A ON P'S & Q'S (Q) "My brother and I have had an argument about whether it's right to eat something while, walking down the street. He thinks it's wrong. I think .','s O.K. What do you think?" B.K. (A) It depends on the street and what you're eating. A polished man would not walk down Main Street munching a sandwich. Nothing, however, tops ;.n apple or ice cream cone while .strolling through the park.-So, as in many things, "it all depends."
