Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - February 12, 1960, Mason City, Iowa North Iowa Daily Newspaper for MM VOL M CITY GLOBEGAZETTE The Newspaper That Makes All North lowanc Neighbors HOME EDITION tWUd Proa roll UaMWtrM MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY FEBRUARY 12 Tfcto W Two IM A study of teenage j problems They are not what adults often suspect By LOUIS CASSELS WASHINGTON UPI The religious moral and personal problems that trouble American teenagers are not always the ones that adults suspect That discovery was made in a recent churchsponsored survey of 113000 high school students in various parts of the country The survey was conducted by Lutheran Youth Research and covered boys and girls age 15 to 18 in 5000 different Lutheran congregations While interviewing young peo ple about their problems the researchers made a simultane ous study among parents and other adults to find out what they thought teen agers were worrying about The results were encouraging in some re spects discouraging in others but always enlightening THEY SHOWED THAT young people in general are much hap pier about their home life less critical of their elders and more eager for adult companionship than the average parent thinks It was also evident that teen agers even as early as the sophomore year of high school are less concerned about their immediate dating problems than believed and much more concerned about developing a wholesome attitude toward sex and learning how to choose the right partner for marriage Most of the teenagers felt that their churches had failed them badly in the matter of providing guid ance on these problems Considering that all of the par ticipants were actively associ ated with church life some of the findings raise a serious question as to how well churches are communicating the Chris tian message to their young members Most of the youth it was found do not have a con fident joyous faith THE WORDS of the Rev Merton P Strommen director of the project they are living in an awareness of Gods law and not His Gospel They are not certain of Gods forgiveness or conscious of the fact that they are saved by faith While a substantial majority ranked religion as an important factor in their lives they said other social ac ceptance and physical wellbe more important to them The survey confirmed what every Sunday School teacher al ready knows todays young people have little familiarity with the Bible More than half of the youths said they had read the Bible only once or twice in the past six months Only one out of five maintained a habit of daily prayer or devotions THE TEENAGERS were asked in what areas they most wanted guidance from their churches They gave lop prior ity to counselling on the choice of a career or vocation They also expressed an urgent desire for more understanding help in boygirl relationships They also were asked to list in order of intensity the temptations which bother them most The answers amount to a roster of the sins that loom largest in a teenagers private moral struggle Some parents will be sur prised and others relieved to find that swearing was first ly ing second and other tempta tions in this

SAME DATE195974 Allies now admit it France Full partner By MARGUERITE HIGG1NS New York Herald Tribune News Service WASHINGTON No juggling if intelligence data is in the lightest bit necessary in Wash ngton these days when its a uestion of estimating not just he intentions but the capabili ies of Frances Gen Charles le Gaulle whose personal graa around these partsis getting to be as vast as his name Since his recent victory over he Algerian dissidents imper fect as it may be it has become larder and harder for Washing ton or anybody else to treat Gen De Gaulle as a junior member of the alliance And although Gen De Gaulle may be mystical in some things he is no ballistics mystic Here he has been practical precise and to his point which is that if France is to be reckoned a world power she must possess the most modernweapons of the nuclear age Far more has IJeen heard of the case against spreading atomic secrets beyond the pres ent nuclear club Great Britain the United States

case for giving trusted allies control over weapons on vhich their ability to deter at ack depends But the case against spreading of secrets has n important measure been based on assumptions that are

such has been the spurt of science that the manufacture of nuclear weapons has oecome 30th comparatively cheap and within the capabilities of any lighly industrialized power And as Gen de Gaulle has pro claimed to the world France in tends soon to explode her own atomic bomb Thus French pos session of the atomic bomb is inevitable It is merely a ques tion of how and when WHAT IF FRANCE is forced to proceed with the long series of tests required to refine the bomb for test series where the fallout will be very great as the bomb will in its initial stages be very dirty as was the case with Americas first bombs The Red anti French and antifallout propa ganda will rub off as well on the United States And is it in the interest of the West for France to set her BUENOS AIRES Argentina
