JOB ABOVE ALL:
'U' Center Interviewers
Gvercome All Obstacles

By RONA FRIEDMAN
Neither the rigid doormen who
guard the apartment dwellers of
the larger cities, nor the unleashed
fury of nature stop the perserver-!
ing interviewers who work for the
University Survey Research Cen-
ter.
A low refusal rate of three per-
cent testifies to the excellent train-
ing these part-time interviewersF
receive from the Center's travel-
ling supervisors. These regionalF
supervisors, veteran interviewers
themselves, are the link between
interviewers and the Center's Field
staff.I
BEFORE THE interviewer starts
out, he is given a list of specific
dwellings he must visit and a pre-
cise person, such as the master of
the house, whom he must talk to.
No one, not even a wife, can be a
substitute.
This narrows the margin of,
error. For an overly heavy pro-
portion of middle class house-
wives, more readily accessible to
the interviewer, has caused
many inaccuracies in other sur-
vey predictions. An example of
this was the 1948 election.
An understanding and sympathy
with people, flexibility, and physi-
cal hardiness are the essential
qualifications for a successful in-
terviewer," advised Charles Can-
nell, director of the Field Program
at the Center.
In rural districts where surveys
are conducted, this last prerequi-
site is especially important. In one
isolated mountainous region with
steep treacherous winding roads,
the only way the interviewer could
get around was to wait for the
mailman and ride with him in his
jeep over areas where only moun-
tain goats would usually venture.
* s a
PEOPLE living in these regions
are apt to be more receptive to
interviewers. For it is a rare occa-

Cole Views
Italan Red
Expansion
Prof. Taylor Cole of Duke Uni-
versity yesterday addressed a
meeting of the Political Science
Round Table concerning the
growth, causes and seriousness of
the Communist threat in Italy.
The professor noted that aside
from France, Communism has
struck its deepest roots in Italy
as far as Western Europe is con-
cerned. In enumerating the caus-
es of this development Prof. Cole
referred specifically to the con-
tinuity of Communist leadership
in Italy.
THE RULING elite has not been
plagued by constant turnover of
personnel as have been many of
their counterparts in other West-
ern European nations. He also
mentioned the quick adaptability
of the ruling Communist group to
immediate developments so that
they could reap the greatest po-
litical dividends.
The social structure of Italy is
also another reason for the
growth of Communism in Italy,
Prof. Cole said. The fact that
most of the agricultural popu-
lation works on land hardly suf-
ficient to feed themselves, is one
of the main causes of economic
distress in the area today.
Despite the recent land reform,
certain inequities still exist which
provide substantial grounds for
left-wing attacks, the professor
noted.
Still other factors in the social

INTERVIEWEE - 90-year-old
Col. "Montana" F. M. McCray,
the first white boy born in Mon-
tana, who was a Pony Express
Rider at 12 and is the last U. S.
Government Scout of the North-
west, is one of the unusual peo-
ple interviewers occasionally
meet during their work. Col.
McCray was a member of Wil-
liam Cody's Original Wild West
Shows, prospected for gold in
Africa and when he lost his for-
tune in 1938, he and his wife
built a cabin with only an axe
and cross cut saw.

BY 7 A.M. YESTERDAY, the horse above had appeared in the
courtyard of Hutchins Hall at the Law School to advertise the
Barrister Club's Crease Ball, to be held 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. in the
Union Ballroom. Staked in the middle of the courtyard munching
leaves, and entirely surrounded by the Law School building, the
question of how the horse got into the courtyard remained un-
answered.

structure such as the inequality of
opportunity for education, inade-
quate labor relations, and a poor
tax structure invite Communist
criticism, Prof. Cole stressed.
In conclusion, Prof. Cole said
that thesubstanital Communist
vote cast during elections is pri-
marily a protest vote which point-
ed up the absence of an effective,
constitutional left-wing party, as
an alternative to the Communist
Party.

TODAY and THURSDAY

sion, especially during the winter,
for them to receive visitors.,
"However, sometimes these-
people have been so isolated that
they become inarticulate," point-
ed out Lillian Klineberg, a trav-
eling supervisor in charge of the
Southern districts.
Fast talking is often required
when a door is opened to the in-
terviewer. He must first convince
the person that he is not selling
anything and then prove that his
purpose is legitimate.
Easterners in metropolitan areas
are more suspicious and require
much more explanation, comment-
ed Miss Klineberg.
IN "MOONSHINE" regions in
the southern mountains, inter-
viewers ran into difficulty. For, the
inhabitants believing they were
from the Federal Revenue Depart-
ment often would not cooperate.
Finally, interviewers were able to
convince the people that they were
just collecting annonymous infor-
mation for a survey and were not
interested in hidden stills.
Semantic problems occasionally
upset the Center's surveys. During
an economic survey, some time
ago, Institute analyists were per-
plexed by the discovery of an un-
expectedly large number of "no's"
they were receiving to a question
on control of profits.
When the full interviews were
in, they realized that when inter-
viewers who were working in the
Bible Belt asked, "Should the gov-
ernment control profits?", the peo-
ple understandably answered, "No,
only God should control prophets."
UNUSUAL AND pat responses
are often received by interviewers.
For instance, one woman busy with
the Monday wash answered - a
question about the presidential
election with: "When Ike's prom-
ises are washed, will they come out
the same size?"
Television is often one of the
interviewers greatest rivals. "I had
no idea of the hold TV has on the
country until I had to conduct in-
terviews while the person stared
at the set," said Miss Klineberg.
"But despite the occasional ob-
stacles that we meet, interviewing
is a most fascinating and reward-
ing job," she concluded.
