meeting, Prof. Theodore Newcomb,
head of the social psychology de-

audience that the factors of resi-

us are most likely to influence a
person's political preference.
A voter will consistently cast
his ballot for the same party be-
cause he is subject to the same

BROOKLYN (IP)-Joe Black, a
rookie pitcher turned starter in a
"shoot the works" gamble by Man-
ager Chuck Dressen, mastered the
ever-winning New York Yankees
yesterday, 4-2, while the booming
home run bats of Jackie Robinson,
Duke Snider and Pee Wee Reese
brought Brooklyn the opening day
victory in the' 1952 World Series.
SNIDER'S tremendous two-run
blast in the sixth, sailing in a high
arc' over the shiny electric clock
atop the right field scoreboard,
was the payoff in this contest
watched by 34,861, a series record
for Ebbets Field.
By whipping Allie Reynolds,
the Yankee ace, in the opener,
the Brooks took a giant stride
toward their goal of bringing
a world championship to Brook-
lyn after five misses.
Defense,, as much as the home
runs, told the story of this well-
playedethriller. The Dodgers were
all over the place. Furillo's whip
arm discouraged Phil Rizzuto from
trying to score from third in the
fourth. Pafko cut down an over-
ambitious Gil McDougald going
from first to third in the fifth.
Pafko also made a sliding grab of
Hank Bauer's dropping fly for the
final out in the fifth.
COX, toasted as the best fielding
third baseman in the game, lived
up to his notices with two fine
plays in the seventh, ranging to
his left to start a rally-killing dou-
ble play on McDougald's smash
and backhanding Billy Martin's
blazer back of third to throw him
out on a fine Deg to Gil Hodges.
It was a 1-1 tie when Snider
stepped up in the sixth. Robin-
son's second-inning belt on a
3-2 pitch into the lorwer left
field stands had been balanced
by McDougald's homer in the
