The Shocking New Moral Code of Modern Youth

This article was in the March 1925 issue of Physical Culture magazine. According to the author,

"I have already dwelt at length on the extremes of unwise conduct to which our young people go, with their joy rides, their ways of dancing, their petting parties, their freedom in sex relations, and the like. I might have gone with some detail also into the domain of actual crime, such as automobile stealing, banditry, burglary, and assault committed by mere boys."

Society was changing in the 1920's, and this article is just one example of many in which the behavior of the youth of the day was often lamented.
