Page 25 Ted is indeed his father's sononly more verbal and more naive. Babbitt is also a man of short cuts; he has exchanged original thinking and reasoning for the opinions of Howard Littlefield and the editorials in the daily newspaper. Ted does not want to earn financial success; Babbitt does not want to earn an independent mind. To Ted, Milton and Shakespeare and Wordsworth are "old-fashioned junk"; to Babbitt, poetry (and all art for that matter) are suspectsubjects that wasted a lot of Babbitt's time during his stint at State U.

Babbitt, however, is unconcerned about his daughter's desire to do something "worthwhile"; he is repulsed by Verona's naive dream of opening a small chintz-decorated welfare corner in a department store. "Rone," the Babbitt's eldest child, is a dreamer, and now that Babbitt is fully awake, he scoffs at dreams. Ted, the Babbitts' second child, is also a dreamer. He dreams of shortcuts to success and also of becoming an adventurous secret agent. Neither of Babbitt's older children respect work as much as their father hoped they would.
