Had George Gallup listened to
Aristotle, he might have made a
better showing in his 1948 presi-
dential election predictions.
Prof. W. Norwood Brigance of
Wabash University, speaking at
Rackham yesterday on "Aristotle,
Gallup and Public Opinion," quot-
ed the ancient philosopher as hav-
ing a high estimate of the power
Gulantics Will

lantics, will be held from 1 to 4

dents are eligible to try out for
the review which will take place
Feb. 24 in Hill Auditorium. But
only students are eligible for the
$100, $50, anct $25 cash prizes

of public speaking to change peo-
ple's minds.
* * *
ARISTOTLE, 2300 years ago,
claimed for public speech the pow-
er to change people's minds, to in-
fluence the way that they felt
about matters, Prof. Brigance as-
serted.
"On July 3, 1948, Gallup wrote
an article stating that speech-
making during presidential cam-
paigns had no effect on the de-
cisions of the voting public. In
doing this, he challenged the rec-
ord of history from the time the
Greek city-states were formed,
about 470 B.C.," Prof. Brigance
said.
"Aristotle stated the principles
of all speechmaking when he said,
"Truth is stronger than error, but
error can and will win if good
men neglect their speechmaking."
"Propaganda based on truth
backed up by action, with public
speech used to explain the action,
can mean the difference between
winning and losing a conflict of
any sort-from world-wide to lo-
cal," he said.
Christmas Party
Santa Claus, presents, vaude-
ville and vocalist Beverly Olzyn/
ski, ;51, Miss Detroit TV and win-
ner of last year's Gulantics Show,
will be featured at the School of
Education's Christmas party at

sity High School.
