NEW YORK, N.Y. — Whether she's seven or seventeen, today's girl is likely to be more mature in her interests, needs and problems than her mother was at the same age. When researchers at the University of Michigan conducted a survey of today's girls for t'.ie Girl Scouts, they proved this point. Their findings resulted in a thorough redesigning of the Girl Scout program. September is the target date for the "new look" in Girl Scouting. For more than 2\k million girls, this "new look" means new handbooks, new uniforms, and new age groups, Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes and Seniors. Adult volunteers, 750,000 if them across the United States, have undergone intensive retraining during the last year in order to be ready to bring the new program design to the girls. The groundwork for the new design was laid in 1955 when Girl Scouts of the USA called upon the Survey Research Center of the Golesburg Register-Moil, Galesburg, flf. Monday, Sept. 9, 1963 7 University of Michigan to conduct a major study for them. Realizing that important changes in the needs and interests of young girls had taken place since the founding of the Girl Scout movement in 1912, and even since 1937 when the Girl Scout program was updated, the organization wanted specific information on what these changes were and how they might affect the activities that were being offered to today's Girl Sec uts. Divide Survey The Michigan survey was divided into two parts. Part One inquired into the needs, interests and problems of adolescent girls, regardless of whether or not they were Girl Scouts. Part Two dealt with the attitudes of Girl Scouts toward the then-current Girl Scout program. Among the many interesting facts revealed by the survey, the Girl Scouts learned that their program is basically sound. However, today's girls are growing up faster than earlier generations. They want to be challenged with harder things to do at an earlier age. They enjoy and want plenty of September BEAUTY FEATURE COLD WAVE PERMANENT choose any stylo you desire Chaldron Cream $y so activity in the out-cf-doors but, beginning with early adolescence, they want to include boys in their activities. As they progress into the adolescent period they develop individual and feminine goals. They value their femininity and •nr- al feminine ideals, but at the same lime they want to continue their education and achieve something on their own. On the basis of these and other facts, the Girl Scouts are introducing this fall a completely redesigned program of activities for girls from 7 through 17. Basic to this new design is a reorganization of troops in four age levels. Senior, Cadettes, Juniors and Brownies. Four new Girl Scout handbooks, corresponding to the four new age levels, were developed to implement the new design in Girl Scout program. In presenting the newly designed program, the Girl Scout organization is rc-enforcing its position as a leader in the field of informal education. For the girls themselves, however, the newly designed Girl Scout program can be summed up in a simple phrase: "It's fun, it's learning, it's adventure, it's Girl Scouting." College News ...
