and United Frew International Full wirei MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY MARCH 24 1HO 7e Copy lTW ConiUU of Two On POME yllJjION Going to Why not Many factors can affect decision poll reveals By KENNETH FINK Princeton Research Service PRINCETON N there a tiein between members of a family going to college today and the head of the familys job educational background reli gion or size of community lived in To determine the answers to this question reporters put the following question in face to face interviews to a scientifical ly drawn sample of adult citi zens in all walks of life Are there any members of your family at the present time attending college full time A tabulation of the answers to the above question highlights a number of findings that should give educators and political leaders across the nation much to think about To begin with the less formal schooling people have had the smaller is the proportion of fam ily members presently going to college WHEREAS AMONG adults who did not complete high school only four in each 100 have a member of the family in college today among adult citi zens who themselves were grad uated from high school six in every 100 have members of their families now in college and among people who them selves attended college there are 12 in every 100 with a mem ber of the family enrolled at the present time Another way of looking at the above finding is this College educated people proportionately sending three times as many members of their families to college today as are those who do not themselves have a high school diploma 12 per cent of the college educated adults and only 4 per cent of those who didnt finish high school have members of their families in college today adult citizens who finished high school proportionately send one and a half times as many members of their families to college today as do those with less formal schooling 6 per cent of those who finished high school and only 4 per cent of those with less formal schooling have a member of their family in college today Still another noteworthy find ing is that there appears to be a correlation between the kind of job the person has and the chances of a member of the family going to college FOR EXAMPLE only two out of every 100 families whose chief breadwinner is an un skilled or semiskilled worker say they have a member of the family in college today The above finding compares with four out of every 100 skilled workers five out of every 100 farmers nine out of every 100 salesclerical workers and 11 out of every 100 professional workers or businessmen with members of their families now in college The foregoing would suggest that the chances of going to col lege are better for those from whitecollar homes than for those from manual worker homes Two other interesting side lights evidence themselves in todays survey One is that the size of the community lived a big city or a small apparently has little influence on whether members of the family go to college The other is that the religion of a family appears to have little bearing on whether members of the family go to college WHO IS GOING TO COLLEGE DRAMATIC
