To The Dogs?
Is the younger generation going to the dogs?
Not exactly is the conclusion that Time maga
zine reaches in an article on the subject. Entitled
"The Younger Generation," .the article is an at
tempt to gauge the temper of America's youth of
1950. The finished product is a good general pic
ture of college 6tudents and young working people.
Most of the comment around campus has generally
been in agreement with the views expressed in
the article.
The magazine points out what it considers
seven general characteristics of the college student:
1. They are grave and fatalistic.
2. They are conventional and gregarious.
3. The girls want a career and marrlarr.
4. Their morals are confused.
5. They expect disappointment.
6. They want a faith.
7. They will serve.
The article points out that youth of today are
more conservative and less out to shock their
elders than were their parents, most of whom
grew up in the "roaring twenties." Never having

"The best thing that can be said for Ameri

says, "is that it has learned that It must try

whether that job is life, war or both. The gen

do not blame anyone. Before this generation,
they were always to blame, ft was a pre-war
feeling that 'they' had let them down. But this
generation puts the blame on life as a whole,
not on parents, politicians, cartels, etc.

President Truman is faced with a touchy deci
sion. If the general's personality has been a de-i
termining factor for improved morale in Europe,'
it would be a mistake to remove him unless a
suitable replacement could be assured. However,
if President Truman refused to relieve Eisenhower,
political implications immediately will be read
into the action both by democratic elements and
GOP opposition. If Truman dismisses Eisenhower,
he faces the possibility of republicans snatching
