EARL MAZO New York Herald Tribune News Service WASHINGTON To pollsters the word universe has a meaning quite different from the one universally accepted by nonpollsters That is true also of many other words and phras es used by pollsters like horse race laundry list cross pressures and so forth As befits an increasingly pow erful profession that some in sist is a science or maybe an the nations public opinion auditprs are developing a jargon unique to their calling Universe for instance de notes all the people in the geo graphical area of a specific poll and can apply to the population of a block a precinct or the whole country A horse race is a poll to find out how the can didates or potential candidates in a particular campaign are doing against each other in other words a sort of test elec tion a collection of politicians when Archbishop does not doubt it Icon of Madonna emits tears NY Crock Orthodox arch bishop Siiid Tuesday lie did not doubt reports that an icon of the Madonna in a home hero had shed real tears even though he did not see tears forming when lie examined the printed image Archbishop lakovos of the Greek Orthodox archdiocese of North and South America said there appeared to be tearlike stains on the inside of the glass that covers the lithograph of Mary Hundreds of person are said to have seen the icon weep Mrs Banagiotis Cafsouuis a 22yearold seamstress who owns the lithograph said she saw the tears for the first time when she was praying before the icon Wednesday night 1 do not think I can ex plain it Archbishop lakovos said but 1 cannot doubt it It has happened before in Greece He said lu had taken the framed icon off the wall and examined it closely but had not removed it from the frame He said no scientific investigation was planned The Hev CJcorge I Papn deas pastor of St Pauls Greek Orthodox Church here said he had seen the weeping but that it apparently slopped after the Calsounis apartment was blessed Saturday The icon incident recalled a terracotta statuette of the Ma donna which was reported Lo have shed tears in 1953 in Sy racuse Sicily The Vatican has given the reports substan tial credence The Syracuse M a d o n n a

flowed at inter vals for five days and doctors who analyzed them said in a signed statement they con tained the same chemical ele ments as human tears It is truly amazing Fath er Papadeas said describing the weeping The tears actu ally form at the tear ducts and they roll right down about an inch from the bottom of the icon where they dry and leave stains Health plan opposed CANDIDATE North

dirty linen The list is actually a printed rundown of contenders or po tential contenders for a par ticular office Field interview ers show it to voters and ask which name they favor or lean to The term cross pressures covers things that induce an in dividual to stray from the tra ditional voting pattern of a close knit special interest group Areas of ignorance are the issues and public figures about which the electorate is simply ignorant No word is more precious to the polling trade than sam ple No activity is more crucial to its proficiency than preparing the poll question especially for the depth surveys a form of political psychoanalysis AFTER THE mind probing sessions which take from 30 minutes to an hourandaquar ter skillful poll interviewers usually know better than the voter how he or she will finally vote The trick is in how the questions are phrased and asked Nobody will admit out right that he is a higot for example and in most cases the voter who is certain deep down inside that he could never favor a Catholic or Jew for president would hesitate to give an un qualified no if asked about it straight out Incidentally the queries that encourage or maybe lead the voter to pour out his true feel ings are known as open end questions Those that merely required yes or no arc as you would expect closed end questions The sample actually the crosssection of voters to be measured with meti culous care to make certain every genus of the electorate is proportionately represented AH the factors that are believed to influense political thinking are accounted for including race occupation age education re ligion union membership vot ing history affluence party af filiation and sex THE TECHNIQUE of deter mining the sample has been so refined that the number of voters to be polled is less im portant than ever The average sample now for a national poll is just 2000 to 3000 voters As a safety precaution some or ganizations poll 10000 in the fi nar survey before an election Private pollsters by and large use a sample of between 1000 and 2000 in surveying a state A couple of prize items in the glossary of pollsters jargon are variations of the cleancut un imposing word sample One is probability sampling also known as the Monte Carlo sys where households to be polled are selected at random In the other quota sampling poll takers must seek out the
