Survey Reveals $7%
Of Detroiters Own TV

Freedom Festival Offers Diversified Attractions

'U Offers Ample Health
Facilities to Students


Eighty seven per cent of all
Detroit area families own televi-
sion sets, and, ownership is high-
est where the head of the family
has had a high school education
and lowest in those families where
the head is engaged in profession-
al or related kinds of employment.
These were among facts learned
by the University in conducting
its Third Annual Detroit Area Study
under the direction of Morris Axel-
rod. In addition to being study di-
rector, he is a lecturer in the
Sociology Department with which
the study is closely associated.
January to April
Questions concerning television
ownership were asked as part of
a larger study conducted from late
January to April in 764 homes se-
lected in such a way as to pro-
vide an accurate representation of
the total population in the area.
The Study's report concerning
television ownership states that:
The present level of ownership
is seven per cent higher than that
reported last year, the increase
coming principally in the lower so-
cio-economic groups. In 1950, the
U. S. Census reported that only 26
per cent of Detroit area homes had
television sets.
Families of managers, officials
and proprietors rank highest in
ownership, with nearly all or 98
per cent owning sets this year.
With one exception, in none of
the remaining occupational groups
does ownership fall below 80 per
cent. The single, most significant
exception among those included in
the increase was in the professional
group which ranked low in owner-
ship in 1953 and has made no ap-
parent gain this year. The occupa-
tional groups showing the larg-
est increases since last year in-
cludes the managers, officials, pro-
prietors, operatives, service work-
ers, and laborers.
Minor Children
It was found that TV ownership
is related to the presence of minor
children in the family. Where
there are children under 21 more
than nine out of ten families own
sets; this compares with about
three out of four where there are
no children under 21.
A greater increase in ownership
was noticed among those living
within Detroit's limits as compared
with with the suburban areas. In
British Politics
Lecture To -Be
Gyiven Today
~British Politics and Personal-
ities" will be discussed at the Uni-
versity Monday, by a Birmingham,
England, professor.
Under auspices of the University
Departments of History and Poli-
tical Science, Prof. John Hawgood
will present his public lecture at
4:15 p.m. in Auditorium A, Angell
Hall. He is professor of modern
history and government at the Uni-
versity of Birmingham.
A member of the British Foreign
Office staff during World War 1T,
Professor Hawgood currently is
chairman of the School of History
in the Faculty of Arts at Birming-
ham. He also is head of the De-
partment of Government in the
Faculty of Social Science.
A former student in Germany
and Austria, his book on the study
of Germany's evolution will be
published by the end of 1954.
Bishop Woods To
Talk at Lane Hall
The Rt. Reverand Frank Woods,
Bishop Suffragan of Middleton in
the Diocese of Manchester, Eng-
land, will speak on "Theological

Basis of the Ecumenical Move-
ment" in the Lane Hall Library
at 4:15 Monday.
Bishop Woods is in the United
States to attend the forthcoming
meeting of the World Council of
Churches to be held later this sum-
mer in Evanston, Ill.
A reception will follow the talk.

Detroit proper, o w n e r s h i p in-
creased nine per cent while in the
suburban regions it went up only
two per cent. This served to drop
the ownership differentation in fa-
vor of suburbanites over city dwell-
ers from 11 per cent to four per
