ATTITUDES OF STUDENTS TOWARD POLITICALLY RELEVANT GROUPS
Abstract:155 students who did not attend the anti-Vietnam War moratorium and 20 who did attend, indicated their degree of liking for 5 groups chosen to represent authority, namely, parents, police, college professors, college administrators, and high school teachers; and their liking for 5 groups chosen as representing opposition to authority, namely, Negroes, demonstrators, campus militants, black militants, and criminals. As expected, the non-attenders liked the first groups more and the second groups less (p < .001) than did the attenders. Liking for the first 5 groups correlated. 75 with liking for the second 5 groups (p < .001). The results show that tolerance for 1 group does not predict o generally tolerant, warm, or impunitive attitude and vice versa.
