A Sfudenf LooJcs Toward Poffics-V
Measure Yourself Politically
By KENT RYSTROM
'Have you ever wished you could pick up a
ruler and measure accurately all the candidates
and issues in an election year?
"And find your own exact political position
just as easily?"
James S. Pope, Jr., of the Louisville Courier
Journal and Times staff, asked these questions
in a recent issue of the Courier-Journal and,
what's important, he has devised "a yardstick
with which (the voter can) measure himself in
relation to those he is asked to choose between"
"a yardstick which will indicate seven shades
of opinion on eight issues."
Pope warns his readers, however, to remember
four facts in the use of the yardstick:
"1. This yardstick is based on simplkation
even over-simplification. This can be dangerous,
but not if we bear in mind that it is over-simplification.
"2. The American political parties are dyna
mic forces which fluctuate constantly in the give-and-take
of public opinion. A measurement made
today may be out of date a year from now.
"3. Many of the terms used will mean differ
ent things to different people; but to attempt to
define these terms here would be to destroy our
tool of simplification. Use your own definitions
and apply them consistently to get the proper com
parison. "4. The numbers have no meaning whatsoever
except to show a relationship. We could just as
well have started the numbers in reverse order."
To use the yardstick, take each of the eight
issues and' circle the number which comes clos
est to expressing your own opinion on each. If
one of the four phases seems to fit your philo
sophy, mark it and go on to the next issue. If
not, you have the opportunity to pick a middle
position between two of the expressed opinions.
Thus, you might circle 1.5, 2.5 or 3.5.

want to try to estimate the public average as an
aid to predicting the election results," Pope sug
gests. Results Popa obtained in applying the yard
stick to key men and groups are as follows:
1.4 Republican Old Guard
1.7 Senator Taft
1.8 Republican average
