Center Picks the Outcome

Popular Court Official
Receives Special Gift






p' '


! C C *

A near perfect prediction of the
outcome of the presidential elec-
tion was reported by the Survey
Research Center yesterday. .
The results of the Center's cross
country survey, which took opin-
ions from over 2,000 people in Oc-
tober, showed President Dwight D.
Eisenhower had the support of 55
percent of the public at that time.
s *
IN 1948 A similar survey showed
the late switch of independent
voters'to Harry Truman and ac-
curately pegged the election out-
An analysis of the Center's
findings revealed:
1. Eisenhower received one
fifth bf his total votes from
2. Independents voted for Ike
by a two to one margin.
3. First time voters preferred
Eisenhower by a four to three
4. People with college educa-
tions, professional people, .And
those with a $5,000 plus income
voted two to one for the Gen-
5. White collar workers, who
split evenly in 1948, swung into
Eisenhower's column by a five to
three margin.
6. Farmers switched from the
Democrats and went heavily Re-
7. Traditionally heavy Demo-
cratic groups like big city dwell-
ers and Catholics divided al-
most equally between the two
8. Over 90 percent of married
women voted like their husbands.
(This is striking when noted that
popular opinion believed women
would vote in a block for Ike.)
* * *
THE CENTER conducted the
survey 4iy interviews before and
after the election. The post elec-
tion interviews showed about one-
third of those voting had split
their ballot. Ike received a much
higher proportion of these, indi-
cating that his ticket did not
benefit as much as he did by de-
viating Democrats.

THERE WAS no turning back
from the task, for the Center's
survey techniques prevent the in-
terviewer, who is usually a wom-
an, from selecting -the person to
be interviewed.
This requirement stems from
the highly developed selection
method known as probability
sampling the Center employs in
its studies. The procedure differs
from the sampling done by most
newspaper polls.
Under the plan every individual
in the population is insured an
equal chance of being chosen for
an interview. The choice is made
in the Center's Ann Arbor office
and requires an elaborate file of
maps, aerial photographs and
house addresses.

-Daily-Betsy Smith
.. .Soapy sent a tie

of income and degree of urbaniza-
tion. The survey was set up to
also insure a sampling of the four
national regions in the final ran-
dom choice of addresses.
One of the main problems
faced by Center interviewers was
finding people at home. In some
instances interviewers, who are
picked and trained by the Cen-
ter's eight regional supervisors,
made several calls before finally
getting their man.
Center worker Gerald Gurin,
who directed the study with War-
ren Miller and Center director
Prof. Angus Campbell, said a spe-
cific person had to be interviewed
at each address to insure accur-
acy in the survey.
He pointed out that less work-
ing class people are home during
the day and also a woman is of-
ten the first to answer the door-
Another problem in interviewing
is the person who refuses to be
interviewed. Center workers re-
ported, however, that fortunately
there are usually no more than
two or three out of a hundred who
suspect the interviewer of being
a salesman in disguise.

ing at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday in Hill

The Russian-born violin virtu-
oso, who will make his eleventh
appearance in Ann Arbor Tuesday,
began his study of the violin in
1904 at the age of three when his
father gave him a quarter-size
fiddle and began teaching him to
AT FIVE he entered the Royal
School of Music in Vilna, Russia,
his birthplace. When he was nine,
Heifetz was accepted as a pupil by
the famous violinist Leopold Auer
at the Imperial Conservatory in
St. Petersburg.
At the outbreak of World War
I he was touring the Scandi-
navian countries. Later, in the
midst of the Revolution of 1917,
the Heifetz family fled from
Russia to the United States.
On October 27, 1917 Heifetz as-
tounded the music world when he
made his American debut in Car-
negie Music Hall.
Tickets for Tuesday's concert
will be on sale at the University
Music Society in Burton Tower
