PAGE TWO THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPOKT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA SUNDAY, JUNE 17, GILBERT'S "What Young People Think" Shorten School? Sure—But Not Vacations! With summer vacations coming on, high school and college students and teachers are of two minds about the trimester system. That's the system under which school would last 11 months a year and enable a student to graduate in two and two-thirds years instead of four. • The catch is it would knock out long summer vacations. In theory, nearly everybody thinks it's fine—especially the high school teachers and the college students. High school students are only a little more skeptical about it, but college professors are barely favorable. Such an attitude overall among the several hundred students and teachers we interviewed surely will be heartening to college authorities in Florida where the system is actually going to be tried, with prospects it may spread throughout the state. But, getting away from theory and down to brass tacks, we found the faicts somewhat different. Only half as many high school students think they themselves would like it as those who say they would not. The percentage on college students is hardly more encouraging. And the teachers, both high school and college, split evenly on the matter. Not for High School As for trying the trimester system in high school rather than college, both high school and college students view this dimly. Only 29 per cent of the high.school students and 32 per cent of the college would approve. Getting back to theory again, we asked all hands whether they thought the trimester system would raise the educational level. High school teachers were quite positive it would; college teachers much less so. On the other hand, college students were frankly skeptical, and high school students were doubtful too. If the results of our survey were not decisive, there was nothing indecisive about the opinions of many of those interviewed. "The average student isn't rich enough to go to school 11 months a year,"—said 17-year-old Ray Yamuchi of North Pocatello, Ida. "Modern youth is not prepared fo do that much work," added James McFerrin, 16, of Kansas City, Mo., "without facing a breakdown." But Danny Waterman, 16, of Chicago, thought the trimester system would separate the "real students from the ones who go to college for fun." And Maxinc Barasch, 17, of Brooklyn, asserted such a plan would meet the need Under the trimester system, a student sees more of school each year, but he'll graduate much sooner. for producing more scientists, doctors and teachers more quickly. As for putting high schools on trimester, Sharon Kuwanar, 14, of Honolulu, expressed quite well the feeling of her mainland follows when she wrote "We need rest! Also Summer school to make up courses." But Cheryl D' Argonne, 18, of Metaire, La., said resignedly "the students would get used to it just as they get used to everything else." "Boring and hot," snorted Ben Barr, 18, of Kansas City. Whether or not they may be bored, do the teachers and students really need » long summer vacation? Contrasting sharply with what they said about the desirability of the trimester plan, most said yes indeed they do need the long break. Seventy-three per cent of the high school teachers, 63 per cent of the college professors, and 58 per cent of the high school students all proclaimed it a necessity. Even among college students the vote on need was 45 per cent, with 47 per cent merely saying they like it, and the rest not sure. Most vocal by far on this subject, the teachers and professors said they need the time for research, for further study, for recruiting their own mental energy, and for "living like human beings." "A teacher gets taught out after nine months,"' said Henry Wasser oF the City College of New York. "No one should be expected to teach eleven months a year, j snapped Ralph M.

Jim, freshman at Clarcmont Men's College, Clare- inont, Calif., has no trouble finding louring companions from among the students at neighboring Scripps College. CLAREMONT, Calif.-On the tree-shaded campus of Claremount Men's College, Jim Warjone is a big man—in an old auto. Friends say the sputtering, bright canary yellow Model-T Speedster built in 1013 sounds like a B-29 bomber. But to freshman Warjone it's just a 49-year-old car with a new wrinkle or two. He, his brother and their father assembled it from parts gathered around the country. Brass parking lamps were found in Indiana. Wire wheels are from California. It took them Tour years and cost $900.

You Have Company Teen-agers who can't make up heir minds .about their future careers—and may not even care a hoot what they do when they're adults—have a friend in Michaei Blank-fort, California novelist who ncorporated just such a confused character into his most recenl jook, "Goodbye, I Guess." "Of course the kids are in bad spot," says Blankfort. "They may not live out their years. They're faced witli seemingly insoluble problems. One of the rea sons there are so many studeni demonstrations is because of this, very frustration." Fear too, he says, causes teenagers in nuclear 1962 lo act as though they didn't care about anything. "They're indifferent. To quote them in their own dialogue, they say 'Why sweat?' Beneath this seeming difference, they're actually scared lo death. "Because they're scared about what's going lo happen lo the world, they're also scared of trying anything new. They want to slick around their own backyard. They don't want to adjust to new people and new situations," Sympathetic as he is with this land of psychology, Blankfort would gently remind American teen-agers that others like them in countries that have actually been lorn by war did not Icl the future shadow (he present, "Look at the French," he advises. "Their sense of life is enormous. They respond with intensity. They live day to day." And that, he adds, is a good prescription for Ihe u n s etlled American teen-ager.

MALE POLISH Be Chivalrous Not Churlish When You Are Behind The Wheel Shouting at a passing pedestrian makes him — and your ill manners—a public spectacle. BY DON GOODWIN That gleaming symbol of civili- ation, the automobile, has a most jncivilizing effect on many peo- common knowledge how ile. It's jerfect gentlemen in the world- at-large become perfect heels be- lind the wheel; how nice old la- lies become ghouls; how deacons ecome demons. Less known is why this happens. Lord Acton would probably lay t to "horsepower corrupts." Psychologists have quite another ex- >lanation. "Frustration begets ag- ^ression," they say', and what is more frustrating than today's traffic? Whatever the reason, automobiles pose a tremendous challenge 'or the polished men. To qualify even as semipolished, indeed, to have the slightest shimmer, you must scrupulously obey the following rules: -#EVEN though in an auto, you shouldn't be an autocrat. Pedestrians aren't peasants; you should not splatter them with mud, block .heir way or honk in their ears. Nor be a highway hothead. 'Paying back" other drivers fo; real or imagined affronts is, after a risky business. If the oncoming driver doesn't dim his lights, you shouldn't blind him with yours. If he cuts ahead ol you, don't respond with, "Touche!" and shift into overdrive. You should turn the other fender. You shouldn't petrify your passengers with your driving habits, Your hand should be on the wheel even when lighting cigarettes; your eyes on the road even when bantering with backsea-lers. You should lie a good host Offer guests the best seats and give them a good ride. You should practice the common decencies. If you're seated n a car and being introduced to woman outside, you should, if iraclical, lesve the car. You should open a woman's car door when she geli in and out. When picking up somebody at lis or her homy, you shouldn't announce your arrival with a honk. You should walk to the door. You shouldn't shout at passing pedestrians, making them—and ;our ill manners—a public spec- .ade. -•&DRIVERS are not, to be sure, ;he only ones to forget their man- lers in a car. Passengers forget, 30. A man's automobile is an extension of his home and should be rented as such. Many men in : act lavish more attention on their •s than on their homes—as wives will testify—and take more umbrage when their cars are abused. So watch your ashes. Keep your 'eel off of the seats. Don't slam doors. And respect the host's prerogatives. It's a command decision whether the radio is on or off, the heater high or low, the windows up or down—and he's in command.

NEW YORK—(NEA)-QK, once and for all, is a man who plays the flute a "flutist" or a "flaut- The answer comes from Herbie Mann, who is one: "I'm a flutist," he says, "because the instrument I play is the flute. I don't play the flaut." Mann is one of the few jazz flutists around. His group, which •ecords for Atlantic. Records, is increasingly popular. One reason, perhaps, is Mann's aim, which is simply to entertain. "I think our group," he says, "and Dizzy's (Gillespie) are the only jazz group which leaves the audience i'eeling happy. Most of them are like psychilrisl." Herbie Mann visit to the slim, bearded Brooklynile, considers the flute an ideal jazz instrument. It is, he says, more flexible than most instruments, because it is what he calls a "natural" instrument; it has no reed. "There is nothing between my diaphragm and the open air," he says, "except the hole out of which the music comes. So J can bend the notes or do whatever I want. And the llule has a range of four octaves, loo." When he first began playing jazz flute, Mann encountered resistance from critics, club owners, audiences, record companies, everybody. Gradually, he's worn this down and today there are several jazz flutists in business, and the insllument is widely accepted in the jazz field. But he cannot switch, he finds, to other instruments (he is, he thinks, the only flutist who doesn't double on some oilier instrument). "If I switch to the clarinet or sax for only one number in a set," Mann says, "it takes me two or three numbers to get back my tone. You use a different set of muscles in your lips for the flute." George Wein, the man who biult the Newport Jazz Festival, will be back at his old stand this summer, after a year off following the riot in 1960. The Newporlers invited Wein to return. He was delighted to accept. "The riots," he says, "weren't malicious, merely exuberant. And they didn't know how to handle crowds then; we do now." Wein, a classical and jazz pianist, was approached by the Lorillard family of Newport to put on the first Jazz Festival in 1954. "I debated about it for some time," he says. "I wasn't sure it would work. But then my mother said I should do it. Mothers have a special kind of intuition about things they feel are important to their sons. So I did it, and it was an immediate success." The festival is a yeaw-ound job for Wein, who will start work- ng on the next one right after the final notes from this year's fade. And, he says, the hardest part is lo convince the artists to try something new. This summer, for example, there will be a Thelon- ioius Monk composition, which Wein talked him into writing for the Duke Ellington band. The '82 festival, July 6, 7 and 8, will continue the tradition of having many on-the-spot recordings made. Already, Wein has arranged for at least four, and possibly as many as eight, to be taped at Newport. DICK I'ICKS-Hcnry Mancini on RCA, does a good job with the infectious "Theme From 'Hatari!'."
