All older generations have one tradition in
common: their tiabit of talking about younger
generations. Last November, Time magazine car
ried on the tradition.
" Time asked the question, "Is it possible to paint
portrait of an entire generation?" What fol
lowed were four pages about "The young Genera
tion" a portrait painted In vivid, brilliant color.
According to Time, "Each (generation) has
a quality as distinctive as a man's accent."
Maybe so. But whether or not an older genera
tion is capable of feeling out these distinctions
H another question. To find out how other
Younger Generations Time's for Instance have
been sized up by their elders, we went back to
articles written in the 20s and '30s.
Below are 10 Time quotations plus an equal
number of quotations about other younger genera
tions. The results, we believe, is that Time's colors
become slightly blurred.
I believe, drink less today than they did 10 years
ago and a great deal less than they drank in 1300.
So with college boys. They may go on occasional
gaudy toots, but the steady boozing of 30 years
ago is now out of fashion.

Time: Novelists likeTruman Capote, William
Styron and Fredrick Beuchner are precocious
technicians, but their books have the air of sus
pecting that life is long on treachery, short on r&
wards. What some critics took for healthy revolt
in James Jones' "From Here to Eternity" was
really a massively reiterated gripe against life.
But Jones is not the only young writer to wallow
in a world of seemingly private resentments. Most
