youth downstream MY FOREMOST RESOLU tion as I was completing my tour of duty as a correspond ent hi the European theater in World War II was that NEVER would I be found guilty of sell ing American youth short I had seen our youngsters under fire I had seen them in pain and suffering Not once did I find them wanting I think that if I ever found myself wavering on that resolu tion I would seek the compan ionship of a friend whose half century almost of contact with American youth in a col lege classroom has undergirded his confidence in and affection for what we call the younger generation My reference is to Kirk H Porter who for many years was head of the political science de partment at the University of Iowa Now in the process of tapering off toward retirement he confines his educational ac tivities to teaching which in cidentally is his first love And his classes to his surprise but not mine are filled to over flowing There is of course a rather widely held and frequently exj pressed belief that students in American colleges and univer sities dont take as much inter est in politics as they should It isnt even debatable that they do not generally speaking par ticipate in political activity tc any great extent AT THIS POINT I think Im going to let my good friend Kirk Porter take over and dea with this characteristic in youth to which Ive referred Firs theres an unqualified admission that the criticism is well based People who have tried to ge the voting age reduced from 21 to 18 Porter pointed out have met with very little success They have been both surprised and disappointed when they ge little or no support from young people themselves Even the college students who fall squarely in the 18 to 21 age bracket seem to be apathetic and uninterested in suffrage the Iowa City po litical scientist admitted But he was quick to add I do not think it is surprising People do not take an interest in voting until they begin to be aware that the results will defi nitely affect their own interests THIS HAPPENS when they get jobs in business establish ments try to launch business ventures themselves join unions undertake to buy a house invest their modest sav ings get going in a profession or try to make a success at farming There is overwhelming evi dence that young people do not vote in large numbers until they reach this stage in their lives Doctor Porter pointed out It is not until they reach their middle 20s that they begin to be concerned with political issues Then they come to a realiza tion that they themselves may be vitally affected by proposed legislation Then they take n good look at political parties and candidates It is idle he concluded on Continued on Page 2 CHANCE of RAIN North Iowa Variable cloudi ness chance of
