Members of the campus Young Re-
publicaps have been posing as stu-
dents taking surveys for political sci-
ence classes in a city-wide telephone
survey. The study is aimed at deter-
mining personal voting habits for the
benefit of current Republican cam-
"We wanted to know which voters
are Republicans," explains Craig
Ruff, chairman of Young Republicans,
"but we thought that voters wouldn't
respond if we identified ourselves as
The use of fraudulent identifica-
tions was first reported several weeks
ago when Dan Jones, Grad., received
two calls in two nights from students
who both claimed they were making
political science surveys of voter ha-
"I became suspicious when the
second caller began asking me t h e
same type of questions as the first,"
says Jones. "They asked me for in-
formation which would be helpful
to a political party."
The first interviewer who called
Jones has been identified as a re-
searcher from the Institute of Public
Policy Studies, which is currently
studying voter habits in Ann Arbor.
The second caller, however - Kay
Domine, 69, - claimed she was mak-
ing a survey for a Political Science 487
course assignment. Prof. Kenneth
Langton, who teaches the course says,
"There was no such assignment.'
kiss Domine now acknowledges she
was making calls for the Young Re--
publicans. The approach "was not
legitimate," she says, but she used
it anyway because the Young Repub-
licans "told me to."
Ruff says the organization "was
trying to make up an imaginative wayt
of contacting voters. Several of us
used a line - 'approach' is a better
word - that we were students taking
a survey for a course.
"We wanted to see if the response
would be better than if we identified
ourselves as members of Young Re-
"And in a way," says Ruff, "We
were students taking surveys for our
Ruff admits, however, that the re-
sults of the survey have been turned
over to Republican headquarters. The
lists of registered voters used for the
survey were provided by the Wash-
tenaw County 'Republicans.
The survey - which is still under-
way - originated in a Washtenaw
County Republican committee.
Party chairman Nancy Chase, says
such canvassing "is constantly done"
to identify the political affiliation of
voters since Michigan voters do not
register by party.
However, she claims canvassers are
instructed to identify themselves as
Republicans or as workers for a par-
Mrs. Chase says the Young Repub-
licans have helped canvass, but claims
she did not know they were using
false identifications as an approach.
However, City Democratic chairman
Walter Scheider says, "For years we
have recorded stories of very suspic-
Ruff now claims the Young Repub-
licans are no longer using their first
approach. "When he (Langton) gave
us some flak we immediately began
identifying ourselves as Republicans,"
Ruff adds that the response is now
far better. "Democrats are answering
the questions, and Republicans a r e
volunteering to help in the campaign,"
"We were wrong to use the ap-
proach - not only from an ethical
standpoint, but from a pragmatic
standpoint as well," he admits.
Prof. Jim Eisenstein of the political
science department, who reported the
Young Republicans survey to Lang-
ton, says the approach is injurious in
terms of social research.
"A lot of what political scientists do
.depends on the ability to conduct legi-
timate surveys. Misuse of surveys tends
to inhabit the neutral use of them,"
The issue may not yet be over. Miss
Domine claims she has had consulta-
tions with Langton. "He calls me
periodically and says he'll take the
issue to the Dean (William Hays of the
literary college)," she says.
Langton, however, denies having
threatened to take her to the Dean.

Social Work Student Union yes-
terday urged that the school's ad-
missions and scholarship commit-
tee give top priority considerations
to new methods for recruiting
more minority group students.
The resolution, presented by
student members of the commit-
tee, recommends the committee
consider a preferential selection
policy for blacks, Spanish Amer-
icans, Mexicans, Puerto Ricans,
American Indians, Orientals and
The resolution further urges the
committee to consider hiring an
additional recruiter to concen-
trate on the minority groups. The
group has recently hired a faculty
member who will concentrate on
the recruitment of black students.
The resolution also proposes a
possible change in admission re-
quirements for the social work
This could involve waiving the
BA degree as an absolute require-
ment, for "socially conscious and
active people who have demon-
strated their interests by doing
meaningful work in agencies and
the community," says Jack Ma~-'
eus, SW '70, co-author of the re-
solution. This could include work-
ers and indigenous leaders lacking
the traditionally required under-
Faculty members in the de-
partment had mixed reactions
about SWSU's suggested priorities.
"To broaden our recruiting to
other minority groups would be
an important and proper innova-
tion," said Prof. John Erlich. Con-
cerning the possibility of waiving
BA requirements, Erlich said he
"would hope this school would
consider this as one of its top
priorities, at least on an experi-
Dean Fidele Fauri indicated his
willingness to explore the pos-
sibility of such a program, but
noted there are several hundred
universities in the country, includ-
ing this one, which offer under-
graduate degrees in social work.
Referring to the recent hiring
of a recruiter for black students,
Fauri said, "With the tight bud-
get, we're not in a position to get
Currently, students without the
BA can take a limited number of
credits in the Social Work School,
but cannot pursue the masters de-
gree in social work. Any proposal
for an experimental program of
waving the BA would require the
approval of both the social work
faculty, and the Regents.
