GILBERT'S "What Young People Think"
Teeners dream of fame and happiness,
but expect both to fall in their laps

Help for less fortunate
is worthwhile resolution
A worthwhile New Year's mo-
lutton ter every mother to suggest
to her children, be thev tots or
teenagers, is to try to help a leas
fortunate child this coming year.
Most American youngsters, brought
up in an atmosphere of plenty, do
net realize that in other lands there
axe children who are always hum
try, who sleep on cold, mud floors,
who walk barefoot through rain
sad snow, and who are too poor
to go to school. A wonderful way
liar any American youngster to
carry out this resolve to help a
needy child in 1160 is to get to-
getoer e group to financially “ad*
opt” a boy or girl -overseas
throdfch Foster Parents’ Plan, toe
New York City.
According to Mrs. Lenore Sarin.
Associate Executive Director of)
fleeter Parents’ Plan, there are |
thousands at youngsters across the i
United States who, individually or
in groups have “adopted” needy
children in Europe, Korea, Viet
Nam or Hong Kong through Plan.
These Foster Parents contribute
$15 a month toward the support
of a particular child overseas. The
Foster Parents may specify the
age. sex and nationality of the
child they wish to help. Most
youngsters seem to prefer helping
boys or girls close to their own
age. Foster Parents’ Plan sends
toe Foster Parents a photograph
and case history at the child they
are helping and each month the
child writes to them and they may
answer, with Plan translating this
correspondence both ways.
Individual children have raised
the money to “Adopt” one of their
less fortunate counterparts over*
seas by doing chores for neigh-
bors. giving up movies end other
treats and by contributing money
given to them for birthdays and
Christmas. But moat often, child-
ren pool their resources through a
school, a Scout Troop or a church
to collect the $15 s month. The
1,500 students in a Bronx New
York school contribute one penny
a month toward their Italian child’s
support and all 1,500 Bronx young-
sters look forward to reading the
Italian lad’s letters in their school
newspaper each month.
Because “adoption” through Fos-
ter Parents’ Plan results in warm,
personal children - to - children
relationships, parents, teachers and
Scout leaden believe that it la a
wonderful way for American boys
and girls to learn about and be-
come concerned with the destitute
children in foreign lands who will
grow up in a world with them.

By W. S. Gilbert. Preetdeat

Young people theae days dream
of success and happiness. But they
don’t feel a great drive to go out
and fight for their goals.
Our survey of what teen agen
want out of life shows they day-
dream moat of all about love and
a good marriage. The subjects of
business success and security are
The great majority of these
young people feel that moat adults
work very hard to win success. But
most think they will accomplish
their own alms without gnat per-
We questioned 6*7 teenagers a-
eross tha nation on whether they
would rather be happy or famous.
Most of them — 84 per cent —
Prefer happiness, feeling it leads to
a richer life. As Jerry Alden, 15,
of Mt. Pleasant, Ttx., puts it.
“Fame doesn’t last very long,” and

girls says, “Individual fulfillment
means more to me than achieving
However, among tha 36 per cent
of the boys who want fame more
than happiiMss, Harold J. Heyman,
If, of Chicago comments, “Happi-
ness can coma from fame and
’power,” And George L. Mitchell,
If, of Hartford, Conn., aays,
"Fame does not preclude happi-
Family life a Mast
As for whether they want a good
family life or interesting experien-
ces, ft per cent of the girls chose a
good family life compared with 62
per cent of the hoys.
Explaining her choice, Kathy Ru-
bin, 17, of Syracuse, N. Y., says,
“I enjoy children and hope to have
four or five.” Aileen Barnes, 17,
of Portland, Ore., says. "Family
life it the one thing God put us on
the earth for.” A 16-year-old St.
Louis boy says, "Family life is the
essence of life and happiness.”
The 19 percent of the teenagers
who prefer interesting experiences
to family life say they hate rou-
tine and enjoy taking chances.
Linda Powers, 18, of Clarksville,
Tenn., says “It’s a big world: I
want to enjoy all of it,” And a
16-year-old Salt Lake City girl
wants fun now because "family
life can coma later.”
There are mere conservatives
(93 per cent) among tha girls than
the boys (61 per cent) when it
oomee to a choice between the se-
«urt*y ft a certain income or tala
1% a chance on getting a larger
income. "Gambling can cost you
your home,” says a 17-year-old
Portland, Ore., girl.
Boys Taka Chaacae
"' On the other hand, 36 per cent
of the boys feel they must take
chances to get ahead. "It presents
a challenge," says an 18-year-old
Easy living seems to have a
greater attraction than hard work
for modem youth. Teenagers were
asked if they would rather have a
future filled with comfort or would
they rather work hard and realize
a sense of duty well done. Eighty-
one per cent prefer Comfort, many
feeling they’ll live longer that
However, among the 16 per cent
who prefer hard work, Linda
Blomquizt, 19, Astoria, Ore., says,
“The satisfaction of realization of
a job well dene is incomparable.”
Some 32 per cent of the young
paepie says their biggest dream is
to have love, a big family and a
good marriage, and 21 per cent
want a business success, career
and security. Fifteen per cent
want happiness and contentment
most of all. Fourth on the list,
with an 8 per cent score <z achieve-
ment of stardom either in talent or
sports. Next with 4 per cent comes
travel and edqcation. Some 30 per
cent of the teen agers have mis-
cellaneous ambitions—or not at all.
A 17-year-old Chicago girl says
the one thing she wants most out
of life is "to marry Frank Sina-
tra. I love him.” Another 17-year-
cid girl in Omaha wants health be-
cause "If you are healthy you can
obtain tha world.” Edward Pacber,
19, Yonkers, N. Y., wants pros-
perity and "a life of no regrets.”
Would Taka It Easy
As for how hard they are willing
to work to make their dreams
come true, 24 per cent of the teen
agen say — they would give all
their efforts. Twelve per cent say
they would go all out only if they
would not be hurting others. The
remaining 64 per cent aa> it de-
pends — they wouldn’t work too
much because they believe some-
how things will work out
"Who works?” says a 19-year-old
Portland, Ore. Youth. Elizabeth V.
Weis, 15, Syracuse, N. Y., says
she'll work as hard as she can
“without hurting my health.”
Some 23 per cent of the teen-
agers don’t know what sacrifices
they are willing to make for their
ambitions, and 22 per cent won't
give up anything.
In actual accomplishment, 38 per
cent of the young people feel they
will achieve most of their goals.
Another 28 per cent believe they
will realize a moderate amount,
while 17 per cent expect to achieve
only a small part of their ambi-
Virtually all of the teenagers feel
they get a good example from
adults when it comes to hard work.
Some 83 per cent believe that
most grownups they know worked
very hard to achieve their goals.
But there is some skepticism.
Gerald Blackburn, 17, of Mount
Pleasant. Texas, says, "They're al-
ways talking about It.”
