Poll Shows Video Has Small Effect


The televising of intercollegiate football games has had a very slight effect on attendance at games, according to a poll taken by the NCAA at last Saturday's Dartmouth game.

The CRIMSON recently tabulated some 540 football questionnaires that were distributed at the Harvard Stadium.

It was learned that slightly less than half of the people who were polled have television sets. Most of these were purchased after 1948. However, even after video had gained its popularity, about the same number of people attend college football games. Half of the people have seen games on TV this year.

Almost all of the persons polled claim that they take a very great interest in the college gridiron sport. Last year, they attended between two and three games on the average.

The polls have been sent to the National Opinion Research Center in New York, where they will be tabulated with polls taken at other intercollegiate football games last week.

Of the 540 persons questioned, 310 were students or alumni of the College, 110 students or alumni of Dartmouth, and 120 were connected with neither school.
