SUNDAY, JANUARY 12, 1858 THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA PAGE NINE GILBERT'S "What Young People Think" Going Steady Among Teen-agers C_-/ «/ O O For Now But Not For Keeps They've got rings on their fi.T-jers and bells on their saddle .•Oioes to proclaim lo the world that they're going steady, but the teen-agers of America don't really mean steady from now on. This idea of going steady intrigued us since our last survey <>:i thi s problem last -May showed that one out oi every five youngsters interviewed had a steady friend—and of those who didn't, one out c.f three wish they did. Does this mean that America is about to witness mass mar- r;aj!cij of child brides and child grooms? -\ot at all. After making a new nationwide .survey on how the go- ins steady trend afreets a teen- ager'i view of marriage, we 'earned that the word "steady" has f.vo different meanings, depending on whether you're an adult or a teen-ager. Far Cry From Marriage In the wonderfully confused world of adolescence, a steady is .something to drag to a dance or a party, but not to be dragged up the aisle. Thoughts of getting married and facing the responsibilities of raising a family are far, i'ar from the thoughts of today's :een-aged set. "I'm crazy about my steady," confided 19-year-old Martha Henderson of Alexandria City, Ala., s'lould They talk a good line — but what does it mean? be making many new "but I want to look around before friends so as to be in 'a better J settle down."

Johnny has scored with such hits as.Chances Are, Wonderful, Wor> derful. Twelfth of Never, and a Bill, a junior, said Betty and he plan to start a band of their own in the near future.

Toj na 'urally picks music up as she these hits'let's add another Mathis song, When I Am With You, which is his latest release if former Mathis tunes are any criterion, this one will be a hit. Johnny Mathis One year ago Johnny was earning several hundred dollars a week working in night clubs. Today his fee for one night's work is in the four column bracket. He estimated his income for 1957 is $250,000. Two local high school musicians seem to be doing okay for themselves, too. Betty Flowers and Bill Kindig may not earn nearly as much as Johnny Mathis, but they have just as good a time performing. Kindig plays drums while Miss Flowers plays piano and sings. She also plays clarinet. Both have on the way toward their careers aligned herself with those favor-1 " orkjed * i * bands headed by Dick in life before marriage.

This tendency to go alone on ilntes and at dances has caused sume alarm and much concern in many quarters. Some schools and c'lurchcs have flatly forbidden the practice.

"I do|' .._ Marria enough," explained, "and soti.e people not think I am old enough to take on the responsibility of a family." Teen-agers opposed to early marriages cited six main reasons: 1. -Most of their friends are single. 2. Education should be completed before embarking on marriage. 3. Most teen-agers can't afford to get married. 4. Military service must be considered. 5. Marriage calls for maturity, facing responsibilities of raising people, particularly say girls marry too young, but if they have as much education as they want, and can afford it, and are mature enough, it is fine." The 31 per cent who were unhappy in the single state and looked forward to early marriage included and and family of their own.

This, after all, is the most Etiquette ever demands, whether in the Darkest Africa (where it takes a sizeable goof to offend sensibilities) or Lightest j Boston (where the smallest one will do). It's when a man sets out consciously to be refined that he asks for trouble. In large part this is due to the incredible amount of poppycock connected with, table manners—rules and customs long out of date or never in date—which seldom bother a man at home but specting cook will forgive. The point of this is that etiquette is eminently practical. Every rule must have a purpose.

Known as the crisscross method, this piece of stage business has about gone out, possibly because people are delevoping such strength in their left hands they can use them to lift the meat as well as hold it on the plato. Provided a man doesn't use the crisscross method every day, it's advisable not to try it on special occasions. Thinking out every step in eating is like thinking out every step in walking: it's a sure way to stumble. A MAN also may have heard he should leave a little of every course on his plale.
