SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 10,1957 THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA PAGE THIRTEEN GILBERT'S "What Young People Think" Honoring Their Fathers and Mothers, Young People Will Even Support Them By Eugene Gilbert President of the Gilbert Youth Research Co. Have you heard anyone say that modern young people have not the love and respect for their parents that was common a generation or two ago? It's odd if you haven't because criticisms of that sort are as common today as they were in the last century and for hundreds of years before that. To pin down the truth or falsity, we put some leading questions recently to 600 youngsters all over the country. It would be interesting to find out what answers middle aged people would give to- the same questions about their parents. These questions were toughies — not ones that could be answered with platitudinous generalities. Instead they got down to what seemed to us the nub of the matter: Are today's youngsters willing to support their parents in their old age? Do they stand ready even to take their aged parents into their own homes? Keady And Willing The answers were as heartening as anything we have come up with in quite a while. Not only are these representative teen-agers willing to honor their fathers and mothers, but practically all are ready and willing to support their parents it they have to. And our experience is that the answers given by a carefully selected sample such as this are truly representative of the country as a. whole. The comments o! two teen-aged girls just about summed up majority thinking on the subject. "I feel that after all they've done for me, I could never repay them and anything I could do for them would be done willingly and with pleasure," said Judy Glas of Orleans. "They took care of me in my youth and I should fre more than happy to take care of them in their waning years," added Carole Sue Thorpe of Alpha, Mich. Comments from a 3 per cent minority indicated they too would help support the old folks in most cases but reluctantly. "I would do so in an emergency," said an Arkansas girl. "I'd rather hate to have to take care of them," said a Berkeley, Calif., boy. "But I guess I would if necessary." Frank, a Los Angeles youth, balanced carefully on the fence with his comment: "I don't think my parents would ever ask me to do it." In some families of more than one child, the youngsters were ready to help but they felt the contributions should be shared. "I would do it because I would feel it half my responsibility as I'm i sure my brother would help," said an Alexander City, Ala., girl. "I think my brothers and sisters would share in taking care of our parents," a Brockton, Mass., boy told us. Old Age Homes Out Nine out of ten teen-agers think it's only fair that they be asked to help out their parents if .need be, but only about half would like to have their dependent parents live 'in their homes. Forty-four per cent said it would be better if they did not. "My parents are always welcome into my home, whether it be for a week-end or forever," said Mrs. Janice Schwartz of Baltimore. "My mother would be welcome at our home or my dad but not both," a stale of Washington girl Harrison PJA To Sponsor Scout Pock The Harrison Township P.T.A. met Wednesday, at 7:30 p.m. at the Lucerne -school building. The meeting was called to order by the president, Max Brandt. The minutes and the treasurer's report were read by Mrs. Helen Hilkert and approved by the group. Reverend Gene Sellers gave the devotions. The vice-president, Jeannetta Shafer, announced that the local organization had received two awards from the Indiana Congress of Parent-Teachers Association for the last year's achievements. George (Bud) Muehlhausen reported on Boy Scout and Cub Scout activities, and the group voted to sponsor a Cub Scout pack. A meeting for all parents interested was set for November 12 to get this organized. It was voted that the project for the year would be to purchase a new freezer for the lunch room. The planning of the Community Supper in March was placed in the hands of a committee. Jeannetta Shafer was appointed to make arrangements for swimming lessons for all Lucerne students who desire them. The December meeting was canceled. Mr. Moss, Lucerne principal, reported the results of the Halloween Carnival held October 30. Sheriff 0. R. Carson gave talk on the subject "Safety is not an accident." Refreshments were served, and the meeting adjourned. noted. "If possible they should live alone, but close to us." "I would not like to have them in my home and would complain a great deal, but I'd do it," added a Cincinnati girl. Of those who would prefer to have their folks live elsewhere, nine out of ten youngsters thought a home of their own would be best. Only one in ten favored an old age home. "I just wouldn't wast my parents to live in an old age home," said Phillip Gallagher of ..Savannah, Ga., speaking flatly for the ma- jortiy. "I love my parents very much," said Frances Ricketts of Casselton, N.D., "I would never force them to live any place they didn't choose." About two out of three teen-agers told us they expect to support their parents in old age. Tine rest feel they will have to provide at least some help. And, it is interesting to note, 99 per cent of the young men and women said they have given some thougbt.to the subject, an amazing, ly high percentage. The girl from Lombard, HI., who said: "I don't know, I never thought of it before," was definitely in the minority. Questions Asked In This Survey Do you expect to support your parents in their old age? WiU you do so willingly if you have to? Do you think it is fair if you will have to? Would you have your parents liye with you if they are dependent on you? If not, where would you have them live? In their own home? In an old age home? Some other place? What are your feelings in gener- jal about taking care of your par- ierls should the need arise?

S ~'~z~ By DON GOODWIN Some people have the opinion j that the alpha and omega of good' manners is goodheartedness. If you genuinely like people, they say, you don't have to know beans about holding a fork. Your manners will be impeccable in (this phrase pops up constantly) "the things that count.'* Other people disagree. One of them, as it turns out, is Ogden Nash, the poet. In a forum on "Manners" in the current Ladies, Home Journal, Nash tells why he doesn't think kindness is enough. "A man can be very boodheart- ed," he points out, "and yet very disagreeable to sit next to at dinner. I worked with a go jdhearteVi man for four weeks once who ate his food by pushing it down his throat with his finger. I respected his good heart, but I would rather have sat at another table. "Sometimes," Nash went on, ' "people step on my toes with their hearts. The rough diamond with the heart of gold-well, a little polishing would not detract from his goodheartedness." * * * Had the goodhearted ladies of the Journal allowed him to expand, the nimble Nash no doubt would have pirouetted from this point into a look at one of life's major ironies — namely, how a virtue, (good- heartedness) can, -by its very excess, be a vice (bad manners).A timely but-non-Nashian example:. Having just put away a titanic Thanksgiving meal, you visit a friend's house in the hope of entering a coma and .watching, insensate, football players get clobbered on TV. Friend pounces on you at the door and insists you join his family at the dinner table. "Piece of pie? Aw;' c'mon, have one. .. C'mon .. .We have plenty . .. have one . . . please ..." HI if you do and heel if you don't, you have one. "Have another? C'mon.'... Just one more ..." Goodheartedness so unshakably bent on killing a fellow man must be halted eventually, but it's a rare and polished man who can do it with aplomb. * * * Sinking moribund in front of the TV set, you wait for the .game to start.. » Your friend, nettled by your refusing Kis third piece of pie but taking it goodheartedly in stride, seems determined to finish you yet.
