PAGE TWO THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPOE'f PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA iiU WAV, JUNE 24, 1862 GILBERT'S "What Young People Think" Conservative, Teeners are Idealistic Too By Eugene Gilbert '• Pres. Gilbert Youth Research, Inc. What are teen-agers really like? Are they materialistic, venturesome, dreamy-eyed, non-comform- ing, analytical? To find put, we pulled a switch in our usual poll-lairing. We look a look at the opinions teen-agers have been spouting over the past year, and from them, produced a composite picture of today's young people. Those who expect wild rebellion and venturesome action from the youngsters will be surprised to find that the 1962. teen-ager is basically a conservative—and a satisfied one at that. Only a small proportion. wanted to be the first in space—till the Glenn orbital shot was safely achieved. Then, as though convinced space is safe, a bigger group decided on space travel and'thought they might even make it to the moon before long. Few want to fun away from home, and blaze a new and shining career independent of the fam ily. They like home, they're satisfied with their parents, If their parents send them to camp, they like camp. A big majority, 80 per cent, even are satisfied with homework. They walk the middle of the road, in social and personal atti- ;udes. They don't like extremism ,n dress — knee-length skirts, say the girls firmly, are the best. The boys don't like extremes in makeup. A little goes a long way, they indicate. Their entertainment desires are undemanding, too. Movies and rancing still rank at the top. They're well satisfied with themselves, without egotism. When asked M they would like .to be someone else, the majority said no. They're happy to be themselves. They stoutly defend their virtues, and don't, like loose talk about wild teen-agers. i They feel quite capable of handling their own social life without restrictions on time and place being set by. their parents. They do acknowledge they could use more career guidance, possibly because of the multiplicity of choices now available in the workaday world. When they were put to the test of solving some of the problems of their contemporaries, they were sensible and direct. In fact, they sounded almost parental as they, counselled each .other!. The current crop of teen-agers, judging by o,ur poll-takers, is well- oriented. They don't bury their problems, they talk them out. If By and large, today's 1 thinking teen-agers arc conservative. one of ••.their number runs into trouble,.they feel he should shoul-.- der the blame, and not pass it back to his parents. Serious-minded all the way down the line, they see the importance of college, and would go in debt to pay for .this education. They do admit- to a feeling of frustration on trying to meet the competition and get themselves into college, but they're in there plugging' , • But in spite,of this sensible outlook on themselves and the world, a bit of idealism creeps into their opinions. They believe love-can triumph over religious difference in marriage. They are sure all young people are created equal, as befits a democracy. And the girls, at least, don't think money is equated with popularity. (The boys, perhaps a little more uncertain about their social rela- Designing Youth Gets Start by Outdoing 'Hoody' Character tionships, think it is, and would also let-grades slide if being a bookworm is unpopular in their particular school.) Contented even in this nuclear age? Yes, the • majority of our teenagers are. Once in a while, a touch of fear is revealed in the comments, however. They admire presidents "who keep us out ol war," and this includes President Kennedy. Some who can't quite figure' out the approach to disarmament suggest that 'we stop nuclear testing, but keep the weapons "just in case." But this thin line of fear is negligible to most teen-agers, who are so busy living today they're not worrying about toforrow. Gilbert Youdh Service When student-designer Bob Walter walked away with three firsts at the Parsons School of Design fashion contest, he didn't know that the best prize was still to come. It came, in fact, in such a rush that before he had time to get his breath, he was heading up a boutique at the house of Lily Dache. Still dazzled and a bit nervous over this precipitation into the professional world, Bob hopes he can produce the kinds of designs that Dache's wealthy clientele prefers. "I design either very tailored or completely crazy clothes," he comments. His prize - winning street dress- was simplicity itself, counting on merely the sweep of a sash at hip length to give distinction. But his winners in the afternoon and evening categories were stage stoppers. Only student at Parsons ever to «n three first awards, Bob sees nothing unusual in the. fact that the men in his design class outnumbered the women in carrying away blue ribbons. Bob first became-interested in design when he was in the fifth grade. "There was a hoody character in my class," he explains, "and one day he came in with some sketches. I figured if he could do it, so could I." Bob Walter adjusts his creation on model. Sousa's Grandson Swings It 67 Students, Beatniks Are Held In Riots TEEN CORNER George London— The Big Voice MUNICH, Germany nieh police have .picked up 67 stu dents and beatniks after two nights of rioting that started with an impromptu street guitar concert in the Behemian Schwabinf section. A police headquarters officia said Saturday all will be charged with inciting a riot and resisting arrest. He attributed the rioting to idleness and curiosity; "Nobody in that crowd was drunk," he said. "In big cities like Munich you must always reckon with outbreaks like this." The trouble ' started early Friday when 41 were arrested after a melee between 500 students and police. Acting on complaints by residents, police had 'been sent to break up an impromptu street concert by three young guitarists. Early Saturday, student? and Bavarian beatniks assembled in the same area and jeered passing police squad cars. When police moved in to disperse the crowd, they were met by catcalls' and the smashing of bottles and glasses. Some also tried to turn over automobiles and stop streetcars. Police arrested another 26. BY DICK KLEINER NEW YORK .(NEA) - George icndon got "the shock of my life" not long ago. And what hocked Ihe .great Metropolitan >ass-baritone could help you real- ze that time is a-Wasting. "I had always been billed as 'The Young'Singing' Star,' " London says. "But this 'time I was singing in Cincinnati and the review started out - with, 'George Lpndon, the old pro.' I tell you, ,t was a shocker." At 42, London thinks he's in an n-between stage in his development, "a kind of limbo between jeing the young star and the old- timer." And he "thinks this is a jood period of life for him and for his voice. He is now old enough to have a past and to have forgotten some things, and he finds his. 'old recordings are handy reminders. "I check my performances on records," he says. "I'll listen to an old record I made and hear an .nterpretation I'd forgotten. And ['11 realize I've forgotten it, be reminded and use it again." Records also serve London in another and even more pleasant way. In listening to these old records, he says he's been able to detect a gradual maturing of his voice over the years. Since singers are not.supposed to reach their mature peak until they are well into their 40s, this is a good sign. London says it is very difficult, in recording a full opera, to get a take with which all the principals—singers, conductor, engineers—are pleased. The recent "Flying Dutchman," which has won many prizes, is a case in point; London doesn't like it or at least'one part of it. He has a long and difficult opening aria which, when he first heard it played back, he approved. But when he got the finished record, he found that his voice was "out in left field."

Despite all.his successes, Neil remains delatively unspoiled by all his triumphs. • • He still lives in the same Brooklyn apartment house where he was born and wher,e he grew up. He .still 'has many of the same Mends and enjoys the same things he did before the lightning struck. "The.only thing that is different," Neil says, "is that I don't have as much time to do the things I enjoy doing with the kids I was brought up with. As often as I can, I still play Softball and basketball in the neighborhood playground. "I don't think it's a good idea for a performer to move away from his neighborhood when he hits it big in show business. If ton stay where you are, the adjustment is very slight.

Fourteen-year-old John Philip Sousa IV, a freshman at Webster Academy here, discussed his taste in music during a break in a jive session, in which he was clarinetist. Despite his lineage, John says he's never been good'enough in music to make any school band, "and I've been dropped from more boys' choirs than I care (o remember because I can't carry a tune," In spite of these admitted inadequacies, John has not been able to avoid the musical limelight. At the age of nine, he conducted the Southern California Band in a program of his great- grandfather's music, and at 11, he led the United States Marine Band on the steps of the nation's capitol. In 1958, he and his parents were invited to Elkhart, Ind., where the first Sousaphone was made. There, John received a plaque and the : clarinet he has today.. Sc'ience and politics, rather than music, are the career fields that interest., him most. The rock 'n roll is just for relaxation. Hurry-up Girl Rushes Career Gilbert Youth Service .

Add to this a pianist-husband whom she married on St. Valentine's Day, a large house in Philadelphia to which they've just moved, commuting trips to New York to arrange for special appearances (she played'recently at the Seattle World's Fair), and you're aghast at her energy. But petite Susan has been in a hurry all her life. Her father, a violinist with the Philadelphia Orchestra, started her on the violin at two, discovered she had absolute pitch, At three arid a half she tried the piano. , In fifth grade, Susan switched from public school to'private tutoring at the Curtis. School of Music, because, .the' compressed academic instruction there "left her more time for her music.- She was .studying solfege and dictation at 10, counterpoint at 14, and after two years | of high school subjects at Curtis', passed the stale four year exams.

BY DON GOODWIN Some people can stick in their .humb and pull out aplomb in any situation. No matter how strange or perilous the social straits, they nstinctively do the right thing. Not so with many of us. We :;et by decently enough in routine situations, but confronted with the nexpected, the unfamiliar or the stiffly formal we boggle and feel we're making every blunder in the book. That's why introduction know- how is important. Introductions combine unpredictability, with the mutual desire to make a good first impression. They can be tense and awkward or smooth and agreeable, depending on how skillfully the participants apply these simple rules. * * * ALWAYS begin an introduction with the name of the honored person. How do you -determine who is honored? It's easy when there are differences in sex. You merely present the man to the woman. "Miss Doll, this is Mr. Dashing." It's also easy when there are differences in age, "Mi-. Oldster, this is Mr. Youngster." It's particularly easy when there are differences in status. "Mr. Bigwig, this is Mr. Ordinary." It isn't easy when these conflict —for example, you're introducing a distinguished octogenarian male to a teen-age female nonentity. Generally, however, sex, age and In tlio absence of an "honored person," avoid showing partiality eillutr person by the one of your voice. * * • IN THIS DAY of easy manners, affectiilion is just as taboo as boorish ness. Be natural. Avoid such (.tilted introductions as "May I presient" or "I have the honor of presenting." Likewise avoid the affectedly hearty:: "shake hands with," "make the acquaintance of." or "meet." A slniightforward, "Mr. Smith, this ii Mr. Jones" or "Mr. Smith —Mr. Jicnes," is always adequate. In introducing your wife, don't make it production of it. "My wife, Hiirriel" or simply, "My wife" .is usually preferable to "Meet the missus," "My belter lalf" or such folksy fiddle-faddle. WHEN introducing an individual :o a gro'jp, dispatch is more important f !han form. If the group is largo., introduce the person into a cluste;; of )>cople and let him fend for: himself. In somewhat smaller groups, a general introduction may suffice: "Ted Brown, everybody." If you're an eager- beaver host, and the parly is small, introduce the newcomer to each person in turn. But don't get carried away. Be warm, neutral, safe. Acknowledging introductions is easy. «!'u:il say, "How do you do," smils -and nod. If you're siding, rise.
