What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Is \this generation of American youth far more conservative than the generation of the twenties, thirties, and early forties': Dorothy Thompson presentedher views on the crucial question, \Is American Youth Radical?\ in the :lay Ladies Home sour- nal. Among the \bright young intelligentsia of the first postwar period\ it was fashionable not to believe in God or in any divine creat- ive force whatsoever. They scoffed at patrio. tism and proclaimed the only American idol to be money; the oath to the flap was considere childish; the business mentality was the ene- • my of all creative expression. erguing the nonexistence of God or of any superhuman basis for morality was a favorite topic in the many strdios and sparsely furnish- ed apartments that covered Greenwich Villige. Sinclair Lewis aumnmed up his generations phil- osophy in \Main Street,\ which had a gigantic circulation. Those who could find the means to do so migrated to the Left Bank of Paris to haunt its cafes and seek conformation of the idea that American democracy was hopeless. •
