    But many, from day to day, are hardly distinguishable from their non-Jewish neighbors. In93 percent of Jewish women ages 18 to 24 and 55 percent of those ages 25 to 34 had not yet had children Fishman, ibid.

On the other hand, the increase in geographic mobility during the last quarter century has enhanced extended family ties. The celebrated case of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti further molded the group's national image, underwriting the conception of Italians as dangerous radicals. The movement was predominately composed of young, single men of prime working age who clustered in America's urban centers. Their solid penetration of the middle class during this period set the stage for even greater socio-economic advancement during the next two decades. All belonged to the poorer class but were cleanly and neat in appearance and of orderly behavior.
