Voters' Influence Increases
By DEBORAH BEATTIE
"Constituency influence is con-
tinuous throughout the represent-
ative's term, but it has its focal
point at the polls," Prof. Donald
E. Stokes of the department of
political science said Friday.
Speaking on "Political Percep-
tions of Candidates and Voters"
at a psychology colloquium, Prof.
Stokes outlined two ways in which
voters' attitudes are transferred
to representatives and reflected in
their roll call behaviors.
The first transfer method is a
similarity between the attitudes of
the constituency and that of the
representative. The second means
of influence transfer is the rep-
resentative's perception of the
Prof. Stokes cited three neces-
sary and sufficient conditions to
assure the influence of the con-
stituency on the representative's
roll call behavior: "the representa-
tive must agree with the consti-
tuents' attitudes; the representa-
tive must be able to perceive with
some degree of accuracy the atti
tude of his constituents; and the
constituency must take into con-
sideration to some extent the
policy stands of contestants when
expressing its own stand.
"The third requirement is the
*most difficult to satisfy," Stokes
pointed out. "An examination of
all congressional districts in which
there was a Republican-Demo-
cratic conflict in 1958 showed
that a fifth of the constituency
had not read about both candi-
dates and more than half had not
read about either candidate.
"A representative also has
great difficulty in getting a ran-
dom sampling of the voters' at-
titudes because most of the people
who contact the representatives
have an exaggerated amount of
information," he said.
"There are solutions to the
problem of fulfilling the necessary
and sufficient conditions," Prof.
Stokes said. "It is possible that
the constituency can get positive
The literary college steering
committee last week discussed the
possible establishment of a course
evaluation book, designed to give
students in all colleges and schools
wishing to cooperate in the pro-
ject an idea of. the content and
quality of subjects offered during
The booklet has been discussed
for some time by a Student Gov-
ernment Council committee con-
cerned with improving the ability
of students to select meaningful
courses, and concerned with the
fact that in many instances stu-
dents depend upon hearsay in de-
termining the values of a course.
The committee inspected a
booklet put out at the University
of Pittsburgh which offers a criti-
cism of undergraduate courses.
Various suggestions for the ten-
tative evaluatory booklet included
thy distribution of a survey to all
students to learn their opinion, or,
if this proved impractical, a sim-
ilar distribution to a random min-
ority of the various schools and
The survey would ask for the
students' opinion of the courses
and the instructor. The collected
'survey would be tabulated and the
results printed in the survey book-
let, which would cost approxi-
mately 10 cents.
It was determined that if other
schools and colleges would not
support the idea, the literary col-
lege could produce a booklet
evaluating only its courses.
"Finally, thetrepresentative re-
gards the electors' sanctions at
the polls as potential not actual."
An alternative method of atti-
tude transfer cited by Stokes is
popular control of the representa-
tives by national political parties.
In this case it is sufficient for
the constituency to know the can-
didates' party labels, if there is a
genuine difference in opinion on
issues between the parties.
The extent or part competition
differs depending on the issue.
Party label information is guar-
anteed to everyone.
Made of Response
"Research shows that repre-
sentatives have no standard mode
of response to their constituen-
cies," Prof. Stokes said.
However, he added that "the
usual response of representatives is"
thoroughly Burkian. E d m u n d
Burke believed that representa-
tives should be independent of
their constituencies, thus free
from electoral sanction.
"When there is a conflict be-
tween attitudes of the constituency
and the representative, the repre-
sentative will conform in advance
to his perception of the consti-
tuency's view," Stokes said.

The 1897 Kentucky State Col-
lege graduate in mechanical en-
gineering teamed with the Uni-
versity in 1899, commencing upon
a 40 year-adventure into the aca-
demic and professional worlds.
Fondly called "Marse Henry,"
and "Andy," Dean Anderson was
popular with alumni and students
alike, frequently serving as ad-
visor-administrator to student and
He was for many years one of
the most energetic members of
the Michigan Union Board of Di-
rectors. His efforts there, on the
Board in Control of Physical Edu-
cation and on the Residence Halls
Board of Governors won him the
honorary designation "sachem"
of Michigauma in 1932. The tribe
called him "Wise Councils."
Despite his academic and ad-
ministrative duties, Dean Anderson
endeavored to remain close to the
student body. He is said to have
commented, "my office doors are
always open to students; office
hours are from the time I arrive
in the morning until I leave at
night; that's the kind of thing
that makes life worth living."
The University student branch
of the American Society of Me-
chanical Engineers expressed its
fondness for Dean Anderson when
it presented him with a "spofun-
cup," a mock trophy for "the man
who can take it." By tradition, the
cup went to the most popular
Professionally, Dean Anderson
was a recognized authority on
public utilities and heating and
ventilation problems. His specialty
was valuation and appraisal, es-
pecially of steam and electric rail-
ways. He was the consulting en-
gineer for the Packard Motor Co.
in Detroit and designed the plans
of the power plants, heating, and
lighting for the State Prison in
Jackson and the J. L. Hudson Co.
Death came in 1939, just two
years after he had succeeded Dean
Herbert C. Sadler to the head of
the engineering college. Old
