Not distinguishable from the average High schooler because he is the average skating on the common ground of self consciousness. A look into his inner personality will reveal a discontented rebellious juvenile. School is not a Happy place Tor them. They Are not accepted in Many of the activities for the snobs run them All. Their teachers readily give up All Hope on them. There seems to be an Ever present mental Block against education. Most of them accept the deadly premise that Thev can Excel in school when they want to. But this occasion will never come during their High school career. A few of them could actually accelerate in their grades but this would automatically ostracize them in the world of the unenlightened. Many of them will not finish school they know nothing of the real value of education. It has not been taught to them. Neither has Good study habits. Their vocabulary hinges on the Brink of idiocy. But they Don t realize this and he who dares to attempt to draw them out of this unproductive stage naturally thinks he is Superior and is promptly labelled a reformer or worst. Those who manage to slip All the Way through school will i know nothing of culture. Art appreciation or even life itself. I but they will be called educated. They will live in the same Small world they existed in during their teen years. And in turn retain the same Buncom Mittabel attitude their parents exist by. Society is gaining very Little. Their parents Are made out of a most unusual pattern. They love their children and do All for their welfare and happiness. They really want the Best for them. But it ends there As an unfulfilled dream. The value of education is repeated daily in their Homes the i ways to achieve this end is forgotten. Study periods Are virtually unheard of. Restrictions on television Are ridiculous. These parents done to know their children. But they Hope and Pray they will become useful human beings. They wont if the Job is left up to Hope. These future adults Are waging a desperate struggle to find themselves. Forever looking forever wanting and needing to belong. Sadly enough Many of them in these efforts believe drinking smoking and sex is the answer. It is hut Only for a life of immorality and decay. But Drifting Back to the Haven we visited last week we find the girls have made their daily appearance. We know them to be Nice girls from Good families. But they Are Young and passionate. Somewhere in the mass of boys they May have a Boyfriend. The other Fellows just grab anyone willing to do the things that will go on. Most of them Are willing. Slow Moody records will dominate the rest of the evening As it has before. The couples Are beginning to pair off. Each seeking a convenient Corner or chair. From Here on there will be heavy petting necking and grinning. The latter being a most unusual act. Both of the boys arms Are artfully placed around the girl. Held closely against him along with excessive movement of the lower part of the body they Are often led away by their emotions. For hours their passions will hold them like this until one or two no longer in control will move Over to a Couch. Here and else where in the room the same act is being carried out Only on a More dangerous base. The urge for illicit relationships has been skilfully nourished. Somewhere somehow that urge will develop into a horrible Nightmare. Sooner or later curfew will Roll around. This is the sign to Start dispersing. Ironically most of them adhere to this Law. Their parents Are firm about this. You see they done to want their innocent children to get into any trouble. The room is empty now the lights Are turned on the smoke is beginning to Weed its Way out of the opened windows. Cigarette Butts carpet the floor ashes decorate the tables. The kid1 who lives Here is Busy picking up and expertly hiding All incriminating evidences. In a few moments the room will be ready for another night and another threat to our Christian doctrine. It has not been my intentions in this series to portray these youths As Angels. They Are far far from that. Neither have i tried to show them As hardened juveniles. This too is erroneous. Instead they Are prob Lemed searching kids who need the help and understanding of our adults. Adults who walk around in a Daze of ignorance when it comes to knowing the habits of their children. They just can to imagine their kids would drink or get involved in prolonged petting. They taught them better. They know the Type of characters they can get involved with. But they never Stop to think that their own children May be that Type. There is indeed a Bleak future ahead for these youth unless society answers their loud cry for real understanding and guidance. For each and every time they become intoxicated get involved in immoral acts and each and every time their teachers can not explain to them Why they must learn algebra their names get closer to the top of the drop out list. It is our Hope that each and every adult each and every Parent search deep Down inside of themselves and see if they Are really doing Justice to our teen agers and training them in the Way they should go. The future of the negro people is hanging on that search. A accept t h v responsibility parents to thine own and be firm with it. Right As the a old testament i people Are heal funny for years Art Linkletter has been trying to prove people Are funny. We knew this All the time. You can Call a girl a Kitten but never a cat. You May Call a girl a mouse but definitely not a rat Washington Park Myca anyone. You can Call a girl As a term of i endearment a Duck but you Sim ply must avoid a Goose. You can Greet her in the morning with a cheery my dear you certainly Are a vision but please of please never say a my dear you certainly Are a but the boys Are just As Peculiar. They say the main difference Between Man and beast is Many a brains but there the difference ends because Man is lion hearted Chicken slivered Pigeon toed Busy As a Bee. Sly As a Fox. Blind As a Bat gentle As a Lamb drunk As a Hoot owl stubborn As a mule i Strong As an of vain As a Peacock Happy As a Lark or Crayas a Loon a All depending on your particular Point of View. Elected member Bernard j. Of Connor 76.51 s. Sangamon St., was elected As a member of the Chicago press veterans association now in its 25th year at a recent Board of directors meeting William a. Dasho Sec Escary treasurer announced recently. Editorial the Bulle teens Are usually sympathetic to those who obviously Lack mental stability. But we cannot Grant one Iota of compassion to those who would dare resort to threats and physical violence to subvert others. We Are forced to take this regrettable position by the insults that have been heaved on us and the attack in school on one of our most promising students. During the past months we have deemed it necessary to spotlight teen behaviour we Felt endangered the image of the average teen Ager. We usually try to be As tactful As possible about such matters. But in fulfilling this duty we have created some enemies both teen agers and adults. We always try to avoid passing the Buck but in these two matters the High schools must stand accountable. It is our belief that it is the duty of the schools to effectively teach students the principles on which this country was built. And we might add that Freedom of the press is one of the main tendons in the make up of that Structure. Also we believe it is the function of the school to Deal firmly and decisively with those who dare to inflict bodily harm on others. This is the Case that drains our immediate interest. We were a witness to this affront which occurred in one of our More fashionable vocational High schools. And we confirmed the attack As completely unprovoked and unjustified. But yet the assault went unpunished thanks to the whims of an assistant principal. It must be known by All that our civilization will recede into a stage of barbarism if we have to counteract violence with violence instead of through the proper procedures of the schools and Law. This school has indeed struck a deadly and grave blow to this Ideal. We have not and will not yield until this Case is seriously reconsidered. Even if it entails naming the school and the official. Even if it entails our suspension. And we have Good reason to believe that it might. But this is an extremely serious matter you May find and we readily accept our duty to fight situations of this sort with what Ever Force we have. Let it be known that the Bulle teens will not tolerate harassment nor will we accept threats lightly. And whoever it May he we Are prepared to stand fast in our position against their reprisals.
