SUNDAY, OCTOBER 27.1957 THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE »nd LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA PAGE TfflRTBKN GILBERT'S "What Young People Think" New and Old Fangled Fads Flare and Fade Among Teen-agers By EUGENE GILBERT President of the Gilbert " Youth Research Co. Silver threads among- the gold is developing into a national fad among teen-aged 1 girls. From Baton Rouge, La., to Walla Walla, Wash., bobby so'xers are daubing their locks with peroxide and other bleaches to achieve a slick streak of silver among blonde, brunette or raven tresses. Called "lightning bright," the two- toned hair-do is replacing many of the boyish Italian haircuts and ponytails of a year or so 'ago in the nation's high schools. The "silvered coiffure" is only one of a number of teen-aged fads wa encountered in a nationwide survey of youthful antics. We learned, for instance, that racoon coats are coming back faster .than you think, that blue jeans and sloppy-Joe sweaters, are on the way out, that teen : agers have a dozen different' ways of indicating "going steady" r and that, despite these capers, ..this year's high schooler will be neater, dressier and more conservative than last year's model. Remember, the Goldfish? ; Some adults, no -doubt, will be upset by these .youthful methods of •gaining attention, but they ought to think back to. their own college and high school days when swallowing gold fish, wearing lumberjack shirts and .doing the "Big Apple" were the rage. Caught in the nether world between childhood and manhood, teen-agers dote on being different from, both age groups. In a way, they hate to grow up and they hate to be treated like kids, so they compromise by originating fashions, hobbies and even a language that are all their own. Perhaps "originating" is too strong a word, .since most of these antics are borrowed and adapted from other generations and other walks of life. . The "lightning bright" hair-do may be new on most high school and college campuses this year, but it is certainly nothing' new 61 the world of fashion. Cafe society and later Hollywood saw a brief flair for this style several years ago. It didn't last, probably be-- Judy Roberts, 18, of Tulsa, a freshman at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, sportg her '•'-• ' ,. i . - - : - nickle, it means she /already has cause most women weren't too anxious to hasten the day when a grey streak appeared in their coiffures/ • What else is considered de rigueur with this year's teen-age set? ' Sloppy Look Fads In the east, another two tone hair-do, achieved by an off color chignon, is gaining popularity, particularly along the Atlantic seaboard. Shocking contrast seems to be its main aim. A girl with blonde hair will attach a chignon of flaming orange, a brunette will add a chignon wig of blonde and a redhead might resort to platinum or even lavender. "It looks ghastly," admitted a Flushing, N.Y., -senior, "but at least it draws the looks. People think you got splashed going under a painter's scaffold." With levis and dungarees gone from the fashion scene among '.'hip" (i.e. culturally integrated) teen-agers, girls will lean heavily towards Bermuda shorts, straight Wearing Ivy League togs and sporting an umbrella, Ryder Martin trie* to convince Gail Linke on the University of Cincinnati campus that it looks like rain. . racoon coat. skirts, pale pink lipsticks, silver and neutral nail 'polishes, Shetland sweaters, wool socks (worn high east of the Mississippi, rolled in a cuff in the West), racoon coats, crew neck jerseys, and , khaki slacks and car coats in polished cotton. A new jewelry fad is pearl studs inserted in perforated ear lobes. . Boys, also deserting the sloppy look, will be resplendant in charcoal grey slacks, bola (string) ties, V-neck sweaters worn over white T-shirts, brightly flowered vests, loud argyle socks, loud and large cufflinks (providing.a dress shirt is worn 1 , which is seldom), racoon coats, and either paratroop boots or "Libs," meaning patent leather shoes like Liberace 'wears. Only the duck-tSUed haircut prevails in their return to sartorial splendor. Umbrellas, Man! For,some zany reason, there is a trend'towards boys carrying enormous Neville ' Chamberlain-type umbrellas.. This was ^ particularly noted in sunny California. In Oklahoma, boys are going in for 10- gallon cowboy hats and flashy cowboy boots. And all over the country crazy hats seem to be a rage. These may be golf caps, deep sea fishing caps with long peaks, natty fedoras with long;- bright feathers, porkpie hats 'turned up "newspaper reporter" style, beanies equipped with pinwheels or pierced by a'tiny arrow or pinched by a miniature clothespin, Scotch tarns and French berets—in short, any 'kind of head covering that will gain- attention. Going steady continues as the main 1 fad among'teen-agers. Boys and .girls indicate they are going steady by a variety of.dif- ferent clothing gimmicks. Exchanging school rings; pins, fraternity buttons, identification tags and bracelets has been popular for a number of years. But the latest trend is tp wear matching bathing suits, sweaters, ice. skating scarfs, brightly colored shoe laces or other tokens of esteem. In Ohio, if a girl sports a penny between the laces and tongue of her moccasins, it • means -she is without a date.. If she sports a Show Business Doesn't Bother This Holstein OCONOMOWOC, .Wis. — Plain View Inga is described as a "working glamour girl." . The famous all-American Holstein cow has maintained a production pace.y four times greater than the average cow despite long and frequent, trips on the show circuit. .-.-;. The Holstein-Friesian Assn. of America has cited her for a 1956 production record of 25,943 pounds of milk and'1,042 pounds of butterfat. It was the. second,.time she had topped 1,000 pounds. During that year, she competed in seven major shows'.and won grand championships in all.' Milked three times daily, at home, in box cars, and in show barns in five states and Canada, she averaged 33 quarts of milk a day for the full year. Only 13 months ago, she completed a record of 24,609 pounds of milk, and 1,001 pounds of butterfat after campaigning her way. to national recognition as the reserve all-American four year old for 1955. FORBIDDEN ATTENDANCE Because Joseph of Cupertino, a •Franciscian, frequently 'was raised from the ground to remain suspended in the air, for 35 years he was not allowed to attend choir, according 'to the Encyclopedia Britannica.

The following activities hav<i been .pljmned: Supper beginning at 5:00 p.m., masquerding, bingo, a fish pond, fortune:-telling, movies, candy sale, white elephant sale, basketball throw/ cake walk and many other features. There will' be a door prize awarded, a turkey and portable radio will be awarded to holders of- lucky tickets! Gifts will be given as prizes for ,best costuming, and as awards in the various games and activities of the evening. .Many items of merchandise have been; contributed : by local merchants -of.

Ire Indiana, a boy .will hang the scarf :or muffler of his "steady" 'from the rearvie'w mirror''6f. his hotrod.'She will make a reciprocal show of affection by wearing his football or ^baseball sweater.. ; -Teen-aged jargon seems to be in decline, at least as far as. originality is concerned. "At present we are speaking English," explained a 16-year-old Dexter,' Ga., boy. "Hip," "coo," "Daddy-p," "most" and like expressions from the world of jazz still take; a prime place in teen-aged conversation 1 , but the. "bopsters" are rapidly .giving- way to the - Madison Avenue speechmakers. •/ . -. : .--... High schoolers now emulate the 1 advertising crowd with such ..expressions as: "that's the way.the ni'op flops," "let's follow : it • and see what it'eats," "that's the way the cookie crumbles"-and "let's send it up the track-and see whether it comes back local or express." Old movies on television have resulted in this conversational gambit when! a boy meets a girl for the first time: "Me Tarzan, you Jane.". And Army and Navy expressions, borrowed from parents and older brothers, are making a comeback among the high school set. "Shape up," "shove off," "hit the deck," "stow it" and "scratch off" are common teen sayings. . About the only new teen-aged word we encountered was "rauncy," meaning bad to rotten in the East and, unaccountably, good to very good in the Southwest. A "square," the lowest form of adolescent life because he isn't "hip" (the equivalent of "hep" a decade ago), has now degenerated into "cube," indicating he is more hopelessly out of 'date than a square. Teachers and : parents will be happy to know that this year only a "cube 1 ' will be found wearing blue jeans and sloppy shirts and sweaters in the classroom. The "hip" kid will be nicely and smartly dressed — after : having parked, his or her racoon coat in the cloakroom.

BOLINS DONUTS 14rh and Broadway MUSICAl Many school children as well as adults' in Logansport,: Cass and nearby counties play musical instruments. Where 'did they learn to play? A great many of them learned from-persons here, in Logansport who, inf their spare time,' teach music atr two of our local*; music stores. Jim Mentzer works full-time in the mus'ic business. His job as. : a salesman at Mygrant's is only half of his d u t i e s there. Bu ddy Morrow Jim' also teaches, specializing in pianoj cello and organ. Aside from his professional work, Jim directs the St. James Lutheran church choir. .-..-••Jim, who has attended Indiana university, .the Jordan Conservatory of Music, at Indianapolis, .and the' CMC/school, at Chicago, said his present; goal was the further- ence of, chamber music.

What he'd .like to, do is. give a couple modern jazz concerts a week, charge admission, • create a nice atmosphere^ and give modern jazz a chance'to 'be heard in pleasant surroundings. Who knows? Maybe Buddy Morrow has something there. . New releases that could be hits: 'Peggy • Sue,'—Bubby Holly; "Driftwood," - Ralph Marterie; "Never Till Now,"—Gordon MacRae.

By DON GOODWIN Etiquette, defined simply, is the art of not getting on people's nerves. Curiously enough, 'one of the surest ways to get on their nerves is to be nervous yourself. The fidgets are catching; get all shook up and the world shakes with -you. Not that jitteriness is unwarranted these ; d>ays. Wifla satellites in both outer and inner space, a man has every right to.be in a funk— if not a f>lue one, certainly a Red one. Nevertheless the- polished man keeps his jitters to Mmseslf. He's particularly careful not to acquire those nervous little habits,which, though unconscious and trifling in themselves, irritate others; * * * THIS isn't easy. Mannerisms sneak up on you and have many guises. -: Some are.noisy, such as &xxt-<tap- ping or coin-cattling. Others are visual, .such as nail- biting or button-twisting: Still others are both noisy and visual, such as knuckle-cracking, gum-popping and suspeader-snap- But all have elements'in common. AH are persistently annoying without being annoying enough to warrant .a psychiatrist or -even, in many cases, a "friendly tip." And all carry the danger, of becoming permanent and thus a sort Athletes Don't Die Young, Survey Shows EAST LANSING, • Mich.—College athletics apparently neither burn themselves out and die young, nor live 'longer than non-athletes, a study at..
