Hard To Find
Survey Research
Center Asked To Aid
By JON SOBELOFF
The "superman survey" of the
University Admissions Office has
run into difficulties because 70
student judges couldn't get to-
gether orw which undergraduate
men have the- best personalities.
So Assistant Director of Admis-
sions Don Feather has decided to
ask the Survey Research Center
how to revise his survey technique
to come up with meaningful re-
sults.

THE TAMING OF THE SHREW

THE SURVEY'S aim is to find
out who the "best" 10 or 20 male
undergraduate students now are.
Then Feather will-look for clues
in the high school careers of these
students which might have fore-
told their superiority.
Feather hopes to learn how to
pick out potential "supermen"
while they're still in high school,
so that more of these superior
students would be sure to get
college educations.
"Supermen" for the study would
have to be tops physically, intel-
lectually and emotionally. To pick
them, a list of all the men who
were on last year's honors convo-
cation list and had also made high
scores on their freshman aptitude
ests was mimeographed.
Seventy student judges, picked
carefully to represent various cam-
pus groups, were then asked to
check the names of all the men
on the list they knew well enough
