Fricke Tells Import
Of 'Cooked Carrots'
MOVIE PRICE INCREASES:
SGC Hears Butterfield Justification
By CAROLE KAPLAN
Prof. Benno G. Fricke, of the
psychology department, creator of
the widely-discussed Opinion At-
titude and Interest Survey, re-
cently revealed the meaning of
the test's most famous true-false
question, "I like cooked carrots
better than raw carrots."
Dr. Fricke, chief of the Evalua-
tion and Examination Division of
the Bureau of Psychological Ser-
vices, described the: "cooked car-
rots" question as relatively un-
important since most items ap-
pear on at least three trait scales,
while this question only appears
'he two traits it helps illustrate
1. Desire to give a socially ac-
ceptable response-students an-
swering "true" tend to answer
other questions in a socially a-
ceptable manner more frequently
than those answering "false."
2. Interest in social and be-
havioral sciences-students an-
swering "false" are more likely to
be interested in these areas.
Some of the other scales the
OAIS contains are: the Achiever
Personality Scale, which predicts
academic success: the Intellectual
Quality Scale; the Creative Per-
sonality Scale; Social and Emo-
tional Adjustment Scales and In-
terest Scales for Business, Hu-
manities, Physical Sciences and
Commenting on the unusual
items in the OAIS, such as "Bridge
is a rather foolish game" and
"Middle-aged men should not
marry young women," Fricke said
that the sense of the question is
It doesn't matter if a prefer-
ence for cooked carrots is directly
related to social attitudes. It may
be unrelated and, in fact, prob-
ably is, he said. But research test-
ing of about 10,000 students, car-
ried out between 1951 and 1961,
showed that, for some reason, stu-
dents interested in making a good
impression tend to answer the
Although no one item is very
significant, tests given at several
universities, as well as those giv-
en here, indicate that the OAIS
Achiever Personality Scale, made
up of 86 items, is as accurate in
predicting academic success as the

Student Government Council
Wednesday night was informed
of the Butterfield Company's jus-
tification for the recent increase
in movie prices.
Douglas Brook, '65, president of
SGC, read to Council a letter he
had received from Lyle Smith, a
representative of the company. It
stated, "Butterfield's manage-
ment's decision to raise prices in
Ann Arbor was based solely on
the economic factors involved.
"'The price of any service ren-
dered must necessarily reflect the
cost of providing such services, the
Barry Bluestone, '65, explained
to SOC that the costs of operat-
ing the Butterfieldttheaters in
Ann Arbor had increased, due to
the recent increase in the mini-
mum wage law, from 85c to $1.00.
Bluestone said that the increase
in wages paid to nine employees
who usually work each day re-
sulted in an increase of $14.85 in
Prof. Louis Weinberg, visiting
professor in the engineering col-
lege, has been named to the cir-
cuits committee of the Institute of
Electrical and Electronics En-
gineers. At the same time he was
reappointed chairman of the IEEE
committees on linear graphs and
operating costs each day. How-
ever, Bluestone explained, if the
Butterfield theatres fill to capa-
city for only two shows each day,
charging $1.25, they will take in
$650 or a net gain, with the price
increase, of $635.15.
"Butterfield theatres can cer-
tainly continue to charge $1 and
still make a substantial profit,"
Smith's letter further stated,
that "motion picture theatre ad-
mission prices are not any higher
in Ann Arbor than they are in
comparable first run theatres, and
are less than in many similar
In a return letter to the com-
pany, Brook crticized the state-
ment as an inadequate justifica-
tion. He also protested Smith's
unwillingness to meet with repre-
sentatives of SGC for negotiation.
In other action, SGC voted to
establish an SGC exchange store
which will resume the activities of
the Student Book Exchange. The
new store will be run by three
students and one full time mana-
ger who will, be appointed by the
executive committee of SGC. It
is hoped that the store will be in
operation by the end of this tri-
SGC also voted to recommend
to the Off-Campus Housing Of-
fice that they compile an accur-
ate and current listing of all
apartments and rooms available
in Ann Arbor for student occu-
pancy. Council members expressed
the hope that some type of ob-
jective rating scale can be used
to insure adequate housing that
will meet the needs of the stu-

Fricke sees each test rec-
ord as the profile of a real stu-
dent, not just as a set of num-
bers, and finds that analysis of
a large number of test scores
yields some interesting observa-
-There is a slight negative cor-
relation between Creative Person-
ality Scores and Achiever Person-
-There is also a slight negative
correlation between Creative Per-
sonality Scores and both high
school and college grades.
Fricke said this means that, al-
though high school records and
academic achievement tests are
useful screening devices, the uni-
versities sometimes carry them
too far. "The kind of person that
colleges should really be concerned
about is the person with a cre-
ative make-up," he said.
"We've got to reorganize high-
er education so that creative peo-
ple will not have to take courses
because we think they are good
Fricke now hopes that more
attention will be given to the.

factors that determine who will

It's been written that '"variety is the spice of life."
But at many companies it's difficult to obtain a
wide range of work experiences. A college gradu-
ate can join a company, get locked into one type
of activity and stay there and stay there and stay
there. That's not the way we do it at Ford Motor
Company where our young men may work in
several areas to develop their full capabilities. We
believe that a thorough grounding in many phases
of our business is one of the best ways to cultivate
management talent. An example: Bob Anderson
of our finance staff.
Since Bob came to us in July, 1963, he's been

actively involved in five important areas of the Company. As a member
of our finance staff, he has reviewed budget and cost programs of a division
marketing cars, another manufacturing tractors and subsidiaries engaged
in automobile financing and insurance. In addition, Bob was selected to
assist in the 1964 national labor-management negotiations. His present
assignment is as a staff budget analyst for product engineering and styling.
Because of experiences like these, Bob will be able to channel his career
toward the activity that interests him most.
