`New Radicals' Analyzes Youth Movement
"The Movement is a melange
of people, mostly young; organiza-
tions, mostly new; and ideals, most-
ly American. In 1960 and 1961 the
Freedom Riders and Negro __col-
lege students who sat-in in the
South were acting in the spirit of
The Movement. Most of those who
protested against President Ken-
nedy's Cuban policy in 1962 were
responding to the impulse of The
Movement. The same impulse took
them south for the Student Non-
v i o l e n t Coordinating Committee
(SNCC) in 196'3, got them arrest-
ed in Sproul Hall at the Univer-
sity of California in 1964" . .
etc. . . . etc.
This • is how "The New Radi-
cals" by Paul Jacobs and Saul Lan-
dau, published as a Vintage Book
by Random House begins. It is
based on documents. It is an analy-
sis of young radical activists.
Sponsored by the Center for the
Study of Democratic Institutions,
this volume is an interesting intro-
duction to America's radical youth.
There is an admonition, as a
front piece, quoting Socrates,
5th century BCE, who wrote:
"Our youth today love luxury.
They have bad manners, con-
tempt for authority, disrespect
for older people. Children now-
adays are tyrants. They contra-
dict their parents, gobble their
food and tyrannize their teach-

peats itself. And in this spirit we

Samuel Spiegel, by virtue of
such film masterpieces as "Bridge
on the River Kwai" and "Lawrence
of Arabia," is recognized as one
of the great producers of Holly-
wood, but there was a day, not too
many years ago, when he was
scrambling for any sort of recogni-
tion whatever. In fact, in what
must have been a moment of des-
peration he once announced that
instead of "Samuel Spiegel" he
now proposed to call himself "S.
P. Eagle." Darryl Zanuck, high
muckymuck of Twentieth Century
Fox, dissuaded him by signing a
note to Spiegel, "Z. A. Nuck."

George Bernard Shaw, another ir-

rueful reflection on the process of

character Julius Caesar: "I grow

Martha Foley, who conducts a
highly-regarded writing class at
her studio in Gramercy Park, does
not think a good writer must neces-
sarily have an academic back-
ground to speed him on his way.
"It's particularly difficult to grade
an imaginative writer properly. I
couldn't tolerate it myself. Remem-
ber that William Faulkner got a

Jacobs and Landau. "The New
Radicals" answers these questions:
Who are the young people who
carry picket signs, protest draft
deferment tests, march in peace
demonstrations, conduct sit-ins
and teach-ins on university cam-
puses? What are they trying to
accomplish? Are sandals and
beards and blue denim shirts
really representative of these
youths? Who are their leaders
and spokesmen, and what kinds
of organizations do they belong
to? How successful are they?
Their activities characterize
"The Movement," a loose grouping
of organizations that reject liberal
authority, affluence and large
bureaucracies. Its members are
"some of the best young people in
the country, contrary to the popu-
lar notion that those who are in-
volved are only `beats,' kooks' and
Jacobs and Landau trace the his-
tory of The Movement and describe
its various organizations—the Stu-
dent Non -Violent Coordinating
Committee, Mississippi Freedom
Democratic Party, Students for a
Democratic Society, Progressive
Labor Party, Free Speech Move-
ment, Du Bois Clubs and others.
A complete section of statements
and documents by The Movements
leaders, spokesmen and followers,
including Carl Oglesby, Staughton
Lynd, Paul Goodman, .17,r_1;) Parris,
Tom Hayden, and others, is in-
cluded in this book.
The Movement has had an imme-
diate impact on American life —
these young people "have forced
thoughtful elements in society to
re-examine their own acceptance of
America, to discover what it is in
American life that is so unattrac-
tive, so distasteful as to make these
young people turn their back on
it and call for a revolution to re-
place it," the authors conclude.

A group of Detroit area people
have taken an option to purchase
an aircraft just released by the
airlines. To operate this aircraft,
a four-engine DC-7B, they are
forming a nonprofit travel club
called Adventure DC 7, Inc.
The idea, taken from the expe-
rience of other successful travel
clubs located throughout the Un-
ited States, is to have a profes-
sionally operated, intercontinental
airplane for long and short vaca-
tion trips, at a cost of about 2 1/2
cents a seat mile.
Each membership will pay $8
per month to offset administrative
and operating expenses and to
build a reserve fund. There will
also be a charge of 2 1/2 cents per
seat mile when traveling on the

be maintained and operated only
by professionals. Procedures of

Further, the travel club airliner
