ParksJohnson and Wally Butter-
worth, the two men who will bring
"Vox Pop" to Ann Arbor Thursday,
have earned- during the past nine
years the distinction of having been
in more places and having talked
with more people than anyone else in
the country,
Since 1932, when they began this,
the progenitor of all radio quiz shows,
Johnson and Butterworth have asked
some 205,000 questions of nearly 4,500
people and, they claim, have received
a remarkable amount of unimportant
information in return.
In their 570 weekly broadcasts they
have talked to people from all of the
18 states and with representatives
of 47 nations, including Tibet and
the Isle of Man, and running the
gamut from Arabia to Zanzibar.
Last year alone they traveled more
than 52,000 miles by train, plane,
automobile and foot, making three
trips back and forth across the con-
tinent and once going into Canada.
The broadcast here, which will be
carried by more than 50 CBS stations
from coast to coast, is the fourth
which has been conducted from a col-
lege campus and the first to be pre-
sented from a school west of New
York state. Other college broad-
casts have been made from Syracuse
University, Rutgers College and the
United States Naval Academy.
"Vox Pop," also known as "The
Voice of the People," consists of
questions and answers-th~e questions
are based upon obscure information
and transparent tricks and money is
often paid for quick answers.
