Price said that his class in pub
lic opionion measurement was too
small and time was too limited to
obtain absolute reliability on the
answers. The poll was primarily
designed to indicate methods of
polling to the students. The twelve
members of the class have polled
approximately 150 students during
the last few days. A random sample
was picked from the Pigger’s Guide
on the basis of year in the Univer
sity, major, and sex.
The percentages on state and na
tional question which were also
asked will be available later in the
week, Price said.

HE HAS BUILT A BRAND NEW CITY j
The “telephone man” is mighty busy these days!
Since the war, among many other things, he has built
or enlarged 2,800 buildings . . . scores of them large
enough to fit into the skyline of a modern metropolis.
These buildings are more than brick, mortar and tele
phone equipment. They are jobs for thousands of men j
and women . . . more and better telephone service for \
millions of people . . . more business for the towns and
cities in which they are located.
But most important of all, they are an indication of
the Bell System’s earnest efforts to keep up with the
nation’s ever growing needs for communications service.
