Indictment Of American Youth
As"Sof(" Criticized By Forsythe
Buffalo mounted police, waving clubs, shoved through the picket line at Bethlehem Steel's strike-af-
fected Lackawanna plant escorting autos to the plant. Police officials increased their guard around the
huge plant following a melee in which a patrolman was injured. Workers ended two-day strike today after
today after unanimously approving a government-drafted formula for settlement.
Saturday is a busy day at the
studio, with six programs on the
books. ' Youth in the News", with
Norm Oxhandler at the helm and
Mike Church behind the scenes, will
be heard at the usual time 9 a.m.
today over Station WJR. Included
in the program will be a list of the
11 men who have been chosen as the

Tom Harmon is one of the All-Ameri-
cans, who was at one time a Boy

ward L. Bernays is the book which

A new broadcast, "The Children'sI

laboration with the Washtenaw Med-
ical Society, will present the story

allergy at 5:30 p.m. today over WJR.
"Communities in the News", a pro-
gram under the direction of Alvin
F. Zander, will describe the things
that Michigan communities are do-
ing to make themselves better places
to live in.
Popular indictments that American
youth is guilty of "softness" are based
on loose and uncritical generaliza-
tions that merit a challenge, Dr. War-
ren E. Forsythe of the University
Health Service declared in an article
published in the March issue of "Na-
Dr. Forsythe warned that merely
"personal opinions" on this debat-
able subject should be viewed "crit-
ically" and advised the frequent use
of scientific and controlled data in
determining the validity of the "soft-

before the recent demonstrations of
military defense ability and that
these charges raised many questions,
including variables within the per-
sonalities of the commentators who
made the charges.
"Broad' considerations of health do
not indicate that our young people
will be less able than were their
fathers in national defense or other
situations requiring sustained ser-
vice," according to Dr. Forsythe, who
added that such considerations ndi-
'cate an improved condition in the
health of youth today.
He supported the assertion that
the health of youth has generally
improved by citing evidence avail-
able from the records of college health
examinations, especially those here
at the University.
This evidence showed that ,,rage
heights and weights have increased
very definitely in the last 20 years,
that there have been reduced fre-
quencies of contagious auseases, sig-
nificant decreases in goiter and in-
dications that tuberculosis is less pre-
valent among the young.
Dr. Forsythe stressed the fact that
"there should certainly be many few-
er of the permanent physical defects
which result so commonly from con-
tagions", pointing out that this would
be true for typhoid, scarlet fever,
diphtheria, tuberculosis, infantile di-
arrhoea, whooping 'cough, measles
and venereal diseases.
Other observations by Dr. Forsythe
on the health of present-day youth
included the comment that the prob-
lem of the upper respiratory infec-
tions, "colds," has improved to the
extent that the "disabling pneumonia
is now under much better treatment
He pointed out that, although a
larger number of cripples among"
the young might be expected from
the vastly increased accident rate,
no such larger number had been gen-
