Q. LOOK Magazine recently devoted an entire issue to a study of modern youth. They referred to them as the “ Open Generation.” What did they mean by that? A. I believe they are referring to the desire of youth everywhere to push over all the boundaries. They are seeking self-identity; they want to be accepted as an individual. In this day of change, they are attempting to forge their own future in their own way. Q. Did LOOK Magazine conduct a survey to acquire the information for this issue on youth? I f so, how was the survey conducted? A. A survey was made of young peo­ ple in 95 U.S. towns and cities. Six weeks of time and 10,000 miles of travel were devoted to the gathering of information. More than 550 young people were interviewed. Q. What are some of the findings of the LOOK Youth Survey? A. Vietnam: Most of the young peo­ ple felt that the war there is unjust and immoral. Sixty-six percent felt that as long as we are there, we should fight to stop the spread of Communism. Cheating: 96% of those in the survey say that young people cheat on school tests. One college sopho­ more said, “ It’s not only the thing to do, it’s necessary to get ahead. You have to be a very strong person not to cheat.” Adults: Teenagers have a tenden­ cy not to trust adults—at least 81% say they act differently around adults. They describe their parents as “ too status-seeking, too money­ conscious, too content, too passive.”

There also seems to be a real break­ down of communication between young people and parents. Morals: 75% of those interviewed think they are developing a new sex­ ual morality. Even more than that, 82% see their morals as no lower than their parents. They feel that their parents find it easier to conceal their illicit actions and that adults are phonies when it comes to morals. Religion: A large number of them (86%) believe in God or a Supreme Being. 77% go to church or syna­ gogue once a month; 55% feel their religious beliefs are stronger. Ap­ parently, the God is Dead contro­ versy has strengthened their reli­ gious beliefs. At least, it has made them think about what they have been taught. 40% feel that clergy­ men are not keeping in touch with the teenage scene. The teenagers ac­ cuse them of clinging to the beliefs of another generation. Q. What conclusions can be drawn from this survey? A. (A.) Teenagers are bewildered by their world. They are groping to find reality and inward peace. (B.) Teenagers need love and un­ derstanding today as never before. Youth workers are going to have to make themselves available to the younger people and spend even more time with them. (C.) Adults who work with young people are going to have to develop new approaches and techniques. Our methods must be contemporary! (D.) Groping teenagers should be introduced to Jesus Christ in order to find the peace they are looking for. They must learn to rest on the sure foundation — the Word of God ! Get them involved.

On street corners, ¡n homes, in shops, and in our witnessing* cen­ ters, our workers faith­ fully proclaim the story of redemption "accord­ ing to Moses and the prophets, and the gos­ pel message from the New Testament, and Jews are finding the Saviour.

A Jewish boy accepted a tract, "Isaiah's Por­ trait of Messiah" and immediately asked, "Can you tell me more about this?" There on a street corner in Chicago a 12 year old boy listened intently to the skillful presentation of the Scriptures and ac­ cepted Jesus Christ os his Messiah and Sav­ iour. A middle-aged Jew­ ess, after hearing the gospel for several years at Miami Beach called and said, "I am terribly distressed. Please come over. I must find the Lord today."
