Survey Shows Feelings
Concerning Counselors

SRA Elects New Leaders

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the sec-
ond in a series of four articles report-
ing the findings in surveys of the
literary college counseling facilities
by James D. Shortt, Jr., which were
done in partial fulfillment of the re-
quirements for the degree of Doctor
of Philosophy.)
Being easy to talk to, warm, or
"human" are the characteristics
most students like best in their
counselors, according to a recent
survey of literary college students.
The student group questioned
about counseling facilities-about
four percent of the literary school
student body-were selected by
drawing every twenty-sixth name
from an alphabetical listing.
Selected students were about
equal in men-women division had
between a B and C average, and
about two-thirds participated in
one or more extracurricular acti-
vities, most of them in athletics.
Counseling Favored
About eight out of ten students
favored academic counseling. Half
erported that they turned to aca-
demic counselors for advice on
academic problems, others giving
fellow students, parents and resi-
dence hall advisers as information
The miost frequent reasons for
consulting a counselor were, of
course, classification, getting re-
gistration cards signed, and sche-
dule and program planning.
in general, upperclassmen were
more enthusiastic about their
counselors than underclassmen.
Opinions Vary
About one-sixth of students were

athy on the part of most Ameri-
can citizens toward any efforts at
civil defense.
U.S. Not Immune
Reasons given for this apathetic
trend center around either an "it-
can't-happen-here" or a "what's-
the-use" conviction. Current pub-
lications on the destructiveness of
nuclear warfare are fast chang-
ing the membership of the former
CD officials point out that,
while an active civil defense pro-
gram cannot save all lives in an
attack, it can reduce considerably
the destruction and casualties pos-
sible with any kind of weapons.
Most important, they stress, is
the increased power, with a civil
defense program, to survive and
Officials' Attitude
Perhaps the most dangerous
threat to civil defense is apathy
or hopelessness even on the part
of the CD officials in many com-
munities throughout the country.
Ann Arbor is not exempt from
this attitude.
After the recent siren test, this
writer asked a local official how
citizens would know of any enemy
attack without hearing the siren
or being informed through radio.'
His reply was simple: "They
wouldn't. What would you expect
them to do anyway if they didn't
-crawl under their beds?"

well satisfied with counselor per-
formance. Another fifth to a quar-
ter were fairly well satisfied.
Nearly one-sixth felt that their
counselors did not meet the re-
quirements of understanding stu-
dent difficulties and being inform-
ed on course content. About four
per cent reported their counselors
gave incorrect information and
advice: The remaining students
either were neutral or felt there
was not sufficient evidence to
form an opinion.
Advice from Friends
Sixty-three per cent of students
felt their counselors were inter-
ested in studenits and their prob-
lems. Twenty per cent claimed
counselors were uninterested.
The survey revealed that most
students turn to their friends for
advice on selection of courses. Al-
so, most students favored longer
relationships with their counselors.
Most students lean toward mini-
mum. use of aptitude tests. About
half of those who took aptitude
tests as freshmen reported that
their counselors had discussed the
results with them.

You get deep-down smoking enjoyment from Luckies because
they taste better. Why do they taste better? That's easy to
