PAGE TWO THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA SUNDAY, JUNE 3,19(3 GILBERT'S "What Young People Think" Neatness Beats Gaudiness, Say Teeners By Eugene Gilbert Pres. Gilbert Youth Research Co. The girl with 5 coats, 15 dresses, 20 skirts, 30 blouses, 10 sweaters, and dozens of pairs of shoes, gloves, .slacks, shorts, Hats, handbags, formals and cocktail dresses certainly has an impressive ward! robe—but it doesn't mean a thing if she isn't neat. Neatness.is a big thing with you teen-agers:' It means a lot more than how many of this and how'many of that a person may have. Why? "Because a person who has a lot of clothes can still look' like a slob," says John C.' Webb, 14, of Ogclen, Utah, who crystalized the feelings-of 95 per cent of-the 576 young people we questioned in our coast-to-coast survey. We asked if you thought it more '. important to be neat or have 'a .large, wardrobe. And one after 'another, you said NEAT. Of the .rare teener who thought a large ; wardrobe would be better, the i reason — stated by. a Portland, .'.Ore., girl—was that "neatness cannot be • found in something •you have to wear constantly.". But another Portland girl, 18; year-old Carolee Williams, took • the widely expressed view: "It '. is not the number of clothes one ; has—it's how they look," ;• Personality Most Important , While you may be clothes con- 'scions, you apparently aren't nuts •about styles and fads or preoccupied with the importance of ', clothes. At least, that's the picture drawn from responses to ..another key question: "Do you .•think that being well dressed is more important for popularity than having a good personality?" Without any reservation, 94 per cent of you said that a good personality is more important than being well-dressed. "No matter Jiow well dressed you are, if you have a lousy personality, you can't make friends," explained Bill • Zuckehnan, 17, Valley Stream, N. Y. Across .the country, we found CASUAL CLOTHES are approved by teenagers, if the over-all cfect adds up to neatness. Here, college students relax in boy-type shirts, Bermudas. a few teeners who contended there was a premium on being well-dressed. One said that if you were in Ogden High you had to be well dressed to be .popular. We went into some other questions about fads and attitudes and also got a good idea of what you think constitutes the ideal boys and girls wardrobes.. You don't' seem to <be the sort of young people who will follow a fad right out the window. And you claim to be dedicated individualists as far as deciding what sort of clothes to buy and why. For example, nearly 85 per cent of you flatly say that you will NOT take up a particular style of clothing that is a current fad at school whether or not it is becoming to you. Frances' Rosenkrantz, 15, of Brooklyn, N. Y., expressed the view of the majority: "If it is not becoming, I would not be caught dead in it!" Yes & No on Bleaching And nearly 87 per cent of you say that you dress to satisfy yourself. ' "You can't dress to. suit .everybody, so: you may as well make yourself happy,", said Donaleen Kramer, 15, of Brainerd, Minn. We found some division of opinion about the little matter of girls bleaching or dyeing their 'hair. Forty-eight per cent said they Approved of' it, and 49 per cent said they were against it. Of those against ihe practice, we thought the boys might by far out-number the girls, but it turns out that the difference was small (53 per 'cent boys, 47 per -cent girls).' Among those approving was Joann Treloar, 18, of Portland, Ore., who explained "some girls do need a little color." However, others, like Jack Gordy, 14, of Oklahoma City.' Okla., oppose it "because it makes them appear fake." • But you're not hard-nosed about this because we asked those who didn't approve how they felt if it really improved a girl's appearance. Nearly 64 per cent of the' nays said that in such a case it was okay. There have been occasions where some schools have banned girls wearing slacks. So we wondered what you lelt,, about girls wearing slacks in general. Well, in 'general—really, almost .unanimously—you say it is okay. More than 9 out of 10 of you; approve of girls .in slacks. Now—the ideal wardrobe.' We asked you .to describe one, but without being extravagant. This is what we found (and you might try to see how yours stacks up against our survey version): The largest percentages of the girls thought they should have two coats, 'more than six dresses, more than ten skirts amd blouses, at least two pairs of gloves, four pairs of shoes, five sweaters, five Bermuda shorts, two handbags, a hat and one to five pieces of jewelry. The boys figured they should have two coats, two sports jackets, six to ten shirts, three sweaters, a suit, two pairs of shoes, ami plenty of slacks.

Hiroshima Orphan Says Youth Must Fight for Peace Gilbert Youth Service An 18-year-old boy who was orphaned by the Hiroshima bombing •has found American teen-agers highly sympathetic to the plight of the atomic warfare victims. But he's also decided that they have failed to translate their emo- . tions into specific action ' for \ world peace. • Young Hirosama Hanabusa, on 'his way to the Geneva disarma ment conference to present a pe- •tition for a swift end to nuclear ; testing, talked to youth groups across the country, urging them to be more positive about their .beliefs. ; "When I asked one group, how •many of you have actually par- 'ticipaled in any peace movement, not a single hand went up,". he relates; "I told them, we need more than just sympathy." He recommends all kinds of specific steps- for greater world •understanding and more tangible work for peace, favoring organ• ized clubs in high school dedicatee o international peace, such as many Japanese schools have, ex- .ension of pen pal correspondence :o every high school student "to ink the sentiments of youth," and "writing massively .to the Hiroshima Peace Pilgrimage Committee in care of the local Y.M.C.A. to signify support." Hirosama, who has been "adopt ed" by a Webster, N. J. Rotary Club under ihe .Moral Adoption plan, regularly writes letters to his American family, and feels this adoption scheme is most help ful in exchanging viewpoints.

' "Years later," Del says, "my randmother confessed' that she sed to keep on rattling the dish- s long 1 after 'she was finished •ashing theni, just'so I'd keep on it'h the practicing;" Del's teacher, unfortunately; as one of those people' who rould not let her piipils play any- ling frivolous. ,So the high-spirit- d girl rebelled, quite naturally. "I promised myself," she says, that as soon as I could, I'd play nything I wanted to." Her chance came when she .raduated from high school. She efused, point-blank, to go to col ege and study music. Instead, he got a job in a music sfore, demonstrating sheet music at the >iano. It was here thait she devel- iped her style; at the time she lidn't know what it Was and: only ater learned that she was com- lining r,agtime and Dixieland.

And then, out of the >lue, some people who had jus started a, recording company ant needed a -pianist looked her up They had remembered her from ler work in the store;, that was just the 'style they wanted. From this, she quickly 'moved onward and upward. She was mainstay of RCA for eight years with six big-selling LP's,, and th tremendiusly popular hit single : Down Yonder."

Time: any day now. A little man stands trembling ifore Ihe Ihree-way mirror. He specls his forlorn appearance a new suil at least four sizes '0 big. The trouser ends are fold- d up about 12 inches, but still rape over his shoes. The pat- r ake Local Roles, VBW Actors Told ilberl Youth Service Stage - struck teen • agers with eady ambitions for a theatrical areer would do well to get in on le ground floor of a stock corn- any—even if the only available ob is sweeping that very floor. TV casting director Marion Jougherly says there's no better /ay to learn the profession. ''If ou can't get a job, volunteer our services. Meanwhile, watch nd study the performances. tfaybe you'll be tapped as an xtra." For such would-be actors anc dresses who feel they're,trappec tut in the sticks and will never ie noticed, she offers'hope: "Anyone who has really unusua' alent will be discovered, no mater where he is. Casting directors :an't cover all the shows. But an igent may- be present. Or some- me talks to someone who knows an agent." Miss Dougherty strongly advis s against coming to New York vithout gaining solid experience nearer home. "Small stock companies are be loming both more numerous atic nore professional,", she says Many are nearly year-round now Jhurch groups put on prelty goo< .days. Likewise, there are sluden classes in. almost every large ily, and strong dramatics courses in liberal arts colleges. Individ ial dramatic coaching, of course s very helpful, if the student can afford it, and if he selects the loach who will reach him. Afler ill, drama coaching is as in ividual as a set of underwear. Miss Dougherty, who casts for \BC-TVs Naked City, is forever in the look for a particular face She appears unannounced a leighborhoood theaters and dra natic school graduations, am wishes she had more time for this ype of observation. The few she'does call into her office .are not auditioned, but an nterviewed. "Auditions," she says 'are medieval torture. In a lei or 15 minute interview I can ge a great deal of information. It's amazing how much of the person alily shows just in conversation. "Then, if I (eel an actor is right 'or the show, I call him back 'or a reading, even for lh<! tiniest part," ern, a roaring purple and yeilow check, is the only bright spot in he scene. Salesman: Mr. Marmilk, be- ieve me, that suit is you., It's he latest thing from Bond Street n London, England. Customer: Bui . . . but . . . Salesman: We'll just lake it in a little here, let it out a litlle here, okay? Reiidy in Hires weeks, okay? Pay now, okay? Cuslomer (defeated): But , . t okay. Curtain If you're the star of this little ragedy, it's lime for a change. Buying a suit should be a joyous occasion ... in fact, a blessed evenl. since with each new suit a new "you" is born. Know a few basic rules and it's fairly simple. Rule 1: Find a store you like and stick with it. A reputable draper will get lo know you well after a few visits. He'll lake most of the anguish off your mind because, like a personal valet, he'll know better than yourself what you need and want. Complaints? Bring them to him and he'll honor them. As a businessman he needs your goodwill,. and as a craftsman he takes pride in his work. Rule 2: Know the good brands. They're in the newspaper ads. Rule 3: Know what lo expect of the half-dozen or so most popular fabrics (wool; cotton, silk, synthetics) and look for them on the label. For instance, wool is a fine, luxurious fabric but it needs frequent cleaning and pressing. Same with silk. A synthetic wool in combination, on the olher hand, ha's the softness and drape of wool, plus Ihe slrain-and crease- resistance of the synthetic fiber. Rule 4: In addition to the general impression you have about styles from observing the ads, shop windows and men around you, note a few of the details. Today ihe Ivy Look is the big thing. In detail, Ivy means little or no shoulder padding, narrow lapels,, three buttons, plealless trousers tha,t are rather tight at -the top and taper ever more as they descend to the cuffs. Belt in the back is optional. Rule 5: Examine the stitching and matching. (Florescent lights deceive, so 'you may want lo lake a gander by sunlight.) Are there loose threads under the lapel and collar? Are the buttons indifferenlly sewn? In a patterned fabric such as herringbone, do (he lines collide at the back seam, instead of matching in an almost slright line. Is there a bulky piece of malerial where Hie seams meet at the -crotch? Are the pockets paper-thin, or have they been slarched lo give the illusion of strength? These signs all say: "Buyer beware, cheap suit!" (COPYRIGHT 1962, GENERAL FEATURES CORP.)
