PAGE TWO THE PHAROS-TKIBUNE and LOGANSPOKiC PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA GILBERT'S "What Young People Think" Teeners Say Love Leaps Faith Hurdles Can the love of a man and a woman surmount all barriers, in eluding those set up by differences in religion? Churchmen doubt it. Most frown upon marriages between Catholic and Protestant, Catholic and Jew Protestant and Jew. But the .young people of Amer ica, while they ..recognize the difficulties, are inclined to take a chance of love conquering all, • even conflicts' of worship. Nearly three out of five young• sters told us recently that they •would marry a person outside their faith if they loved him 01 her enough. : This in spite of the fact, that .roughly the same ratio said they feel that mixed marriages have less chance of succeeding than unions between persons of the same faith. ,, There is evidence in their answers that the young people.have considered the question quite care. fully. ; "I do not believe the ideal, com• plete union of husband and wife ! can be achieved unless there is a union of faiths," said Nancy Engel, 17, of Bethany, 0 k 1 a! '. "One's relation of God must influence every action. I would have to share my spiritual life with my '. husband. ; "Love is more important than • a difference of opinion regarding religion," countered Cathi Shull, • 17, of Myrtle Point, Ore., but she added: "I think some sort of com. promise should be reached pre- 1 ceding the marriage." '• Frown on Changing Religion . "A family that prays together, stays together," said 19-year-old Pam Ford of Ogden, Utah, falling 'back on a familiar catch phrase. ; "This .is not possible in a mixed •marriage." ' ; On the other hand, said Patsy ;Shirafuji, 17, of Honolulu, such a union "might be more successful 'because the couple in ai mixed ;marriage will work harder to -make their marriage successful." The obvious solution to the prob- ;3em of mixed marriage w.ould be for one of the partners to change ,'his or her religion to match that •of his mate. . But the young people are dead set against that. Two thirds of them told us they would not change their faith to meet a marriage demand under any circumstances. "You don't change what you be- :ieve to suit someone else," said 16-year-old Ann Meyers of Bakersfield, Calif., flatly. "I choose my own beliefs and nothing short of God will change hem," said Nicholas Cuti, 17, of Valley Stream, JN. Y. "If I really loved someone and married him outside my religion," aid Barbara Heimlich, 19, of <ew Yprk City, "I would change o his religion knowing we would not be compatible any other way." Even though there might be a danger of falling in love with omeone of a different faith, the youngsters prefer to shop around for their own mates rather than have their parents do it for them. Virtually all the teen-agers in our poll (98 per cent) told us that marriages arranged by the old folks are not a good idea at all. "Love is the only basis for a happy marriage," opined Guy Cooper, 14, of Oklahoma City. Approve Marriage Courses "And your probably wouldn't love someone your parents picked, out," added 14-year-old Sara Perkins of Mt. Pleasant, Tex. Connie Howard, a 17-year-old rebel from Baker, Ore., .was one of the very few who approved of parent-planned marriages. "Too many marriages are based on physical Ipve," she argued Love isn't all important.'" Most, of .the youngsters (56 per cent) told; us their schools have courses in preparation for marriage. ., Seven out of eight young people who have taken such courses said they found : therti very helpful in deed. And two out of three of those who have never]had such a course said they think it's .a good idea. We can conclude from our survey, that'American young people give serious thought to marriage; they don't want to be told who to marry—but they're willing to lis- leh to a lot of advice on the subject.

Co-Op Parties Easy To Plan Bank, Mont., lived 'on a ranch Gilbert Youth Service Teen-agers fortunate enough to ive near beaches, lakes or na- ional parks are more than likely o take their parties outdoors, and combine sports .with enter- .ainirig, .1 Judy Ann Williams of Broolc- laven, Miss., reports her '• crowd ikes to go to the/lake for swimming and waterskiing, or to a learby national park for picnics. Her friends are realistic about he cost of putting on a party. They pool their resources, ,and ,hen elect a committee to buy and prepare the food. Most popular >icnic fare are barbecued ground jeef on buns, potato salad, and 3aked beans. At parties for girls only, Judy. Ann says the girls favor progressive dinners, going from home to lome for each course; Similar cooperative efforts .are described by Glenellen .Cooper, of Garden Grove, Calif: whose home las a swimming pool. Pool par- ies, she says, are -very popular, and for the ( spread after swimming, the girls bring dips anc chips, 'and the hostess provides the soft drinks. Pizza ranks a big favorite, and Glenellen likes to make her own for parties. Beach parly menus are quick and easy too, and the gang thqughtfull; brings sandwiches, "nibbles,! 1 sucl as potato chips, and popcorn, anc cokes. When Suzie Connolly of Cu .she's now in a,; trailer home), ihe would have friends over for dinner, and afterward organize an outdoor basiketball game. *Jow, since she.Ihfes near Glacier National Park, horseback riding and picture-taking camping par- ies are poiilar. ;i Pack-your-own unches are the order of the. day m riding expeditions. . If the parties do move indoors, record hops are the thing. To rath Glenellen and'Suzie, the Twist takes second-place in popularity. Glenellenfs' C a 1 i fornia Wends prefer .the Surfer Stomp, and the Montana crowd; of Suzic's !eans to the Bristol Stomp. (Judy Ann says her Mississippi friends still prefer regular dances with a band to home' hops.) But wherever they live, there's one kind of parly that has no state boundaries. That's the perennial slumber party for the girls, where in the midst of the gab fest,-the gang hi»s .a chance to plan still more outings. NO MORE SKATING FOUNTAINTOWN, Ind.

TEEN CORNER SUNDAY, MAY 20, 1962 Royal Center Honor Students Announced Til HOYAL CENTER-TWO twelfth- ?rade students, Billene Fry and Teanette Pownell, were on the ligh honor roll for -the sixth grading period at the Royal lentisr 'Regional high school. Tin: report was released by icstcr M. Parker, principal.

Pnina is a trumpet player ,a ;ood'•>ohe. She's also a,girl, and •ery'touch so., She looks like a aller ,younger' edition of Teresa Yright. 1 And she/s the first girl nsturnentalist Sammy has ever liredi Pniria was borri in Austria. Her eal name—honest! is Paula God, which perhaps explains why she :hari)3;ed it when she went into how, business. She'<vas taken to Israel when she was only a few- weekii old and grew up there.: •Her father was a trumpet and rombone player who preferred he classics but eve'ntually played night clubs to make money. Pnina says) there were always trumpets and trombones around the house, so it was natural that she picked one up. She says she remebers no time when she was unable to )lay .the trumpet and believes hat she probably first played when she was around seven. She played .with the Israeli Phil- larmonic Orchestra and came to he U.S. in 1957, equipped with a scholarship to Juilliard. "I played classical trumpet," she iiays, "until I decided that ! really liked popular music bet- ,er. And I fell in love with jazz." A mutual friend brought her to Sammy Kaye's attention, and he auditioned her and was so im- jressiKl that he signed her immediately. She is a sideman (there's hat problem word) and she also las trumpet solos and vocal solos, since she has added singing io ler repertoire. She's discovering America as one of the Kaye troupe. She had never been outside New York State then, she's been south to 71oricla—"I was amazed how-long t lock to go through Georgia" —and is currently on a tour that will take her and (he Kaye band as far west as Las Vegas. Pnina is married to an insurance executive, and she hopes iomeclay to have children—"but 11 gd back to playing the trum- •?t; it's all I know." Not quite all —she' also the Sammy Kaye band's twist soloist. Speaking of the twist—and' who sn't these days'.'—here's the frank appraisal of that dance,from Dion, ne of the teen-agers' ranking dols. "I Like it," he says. "At. first, wasn't sure. I'm not a mover vhen J[ sing and the idea of danc- ng in front of people is some- hing I can't do. But I started :oing the twist and I like it. "My parents came to my apartment and right away they put >n a Iwist record on the record •layer arid begin to dance. I don't [link it've ever seen my mother nd father dance before in my fe, I've seen my father walk on lis hands and swim a mile but lever' dance. The twist is the first .ance he's taken to."

MALE POLISH Watch Your Manners At The Table: Others Notice Catsup in excess is risky, being, among other tilings, an insult (o the cook. By DON' GOODWIN There are two ways to get in- igestion. One is to eat. The Jther is to watch someone else :at. For every chcwhound who gets dyspepsia from wolfing his food here's a spectator with dyspepsia rom watching him. Give pig's knuckles to a pig nd if the pig doesn't suffer, a ussy onlooker will. Greasiness in managing a barbecued rib will cause queasiness in many a solar ilexus—if not the eater's, the pectalor's. Bad table manners, in other words, not only offend another's eligibilities. They offend his di- jestive tract as well. Many peo- )le will forgive the former, but never the latter. So, in the interest of preventive medicine, if not of etiquette, it's vise to winnow out Ihe truly lorrendous boners. * * * EATING shouldn't be auditory. !hew quietly, with your lips closed. Keep sound effects at a minimum. Don't chew and chatter simultaneously. If you're a profsesional hostess latterer, say "M-mm, good!" and et it go at that. Licking your ingers or smacking your lips contributes nothing and detracts much. A meal is not a marathon; .here are no prizes for speed. So don't race. Eat small bites, one at a lime, and never take two ji'tes from the same forkful' or two sips from the same spoonful. While handling the cutlery, keep your arms at your sides. Flapping elbows both imperil neighbors' •ibs and show gusto unsuitable :o the occasion. Liquids should be sipped, not »ulped. Soup slurping is a cardinal sin. Thanks to the law of gravity, t's gene rally unnecessary to 'wash down" your food. If you ;et a hot bite, of course, water nakes a good fire extinguisher, "iut otherwise drink only when 'our mouth is empty. Even then, wipe your mouth with a napkin before drinking. Food marks on a glass rim aren't the most appetizing sight, * # * IF you think the following don'ts pertain only to the high-chair set, you're wrong. Some adults haven't heard of them, either. Don't eat windmill-style. Don't root in your plate. Don't blow your food to cool it. Don't make goualsh where goulash wasn't intended. Keep separate portions separate. Don't submerge everything in catsup or gravy. Catsup is particularly risky. Used in excess, it's dearly a slur on (he cuisine. Q & A on I ( 's & Q's (Q) "I find it disgusting when someone blows his nose at the dinner table. Don't you agree''" R..B. (A) What disgusts one man doesn't daunt another. Etiquette, a s it happens, ordinarily doesn't require a person to leave the table to blow his nose. It's considered sufficient to bury your head, shield your nose well and not make a production of il. Nose-blowers, in any case, should never apologize. This merely calls attention to the act.
