This series, aired from 1954 through 1958, is built around the annual New York Herald Tribune World Youth Forum, which hosts approximately thirty foreign high school students from around the world in the US. The World Youth Forum features the high school students discussing problems of concern to America and the world. Discussions are presided over by Mrs. Helen Hiet Waller, World Youth Forum Director, with a maximum of encouragement to free expression. In this program from 1955, students from Pakistan, Vietnam, South Korea, Nigeria, and South Africa discuss the cultural differences and similarities between their countries and the USA.  Contemporary high school students may have to disobey their parents in order to push new ideals ahead, though disagreeing with one's parents is a difficult thing to do. The student panelists point out that they have had to adjust to more changes in these past seventeen years than our ancestors did in the last 700.
