BOUT THE AMAKIL10 GLOBE. AMARttLQ. FKIDAT, AU008T IMC Thanksgiving Is Seen Through Party Glasses By DR. GEORGE GALLUP Director, American Institute of Public Opinion PRINCETON, N. J.

Aug. 25- What John Smith, U. S. thinks about President Hoosevelt's plan to change Thanksgiving Day pretty much depends on what John Smith thinks of President Roosevelt. That fact, which explains a lot of the tumult over the President's plan, is indicated today in preliminary returns from a nation-wide check-up by the American Institute of Public Opinion.

Though President Roosevelt acted In response to the wishes of retail organization who want the period of Christmas shopping extended, the survey shows that 11 majority of Americans and particularly Republicans--are in favor of letting nation's turkeys live a week 'onger. No issue (o make cabinets (otter, the turkey day issue is, nevertheless, a prime example of the waj Americans sometimes see questions through party-colored spectacles. The American Institute put President Roosevelt's plan to a cross-section electorate in every state a receiving letters and telegrams from the public asking for such a survey. The Institute asked: "Do you approve or disapprove President Roosevelt's plan to change Thanksgiving Day lo one week earlier?" Preliminary returns fiom New England, the East and the Midwest with a few returns from the South and far West, arc: Approve the change 38 Disapprove 62 "Dictatorship," "whimsy" and "just upsetting everything he can" are some of the typical charges leveled against the President's plan. In general, the comments of the Republican nian-in-lhe-street echo the sentiments of Alf M.

Landon, Roosevelt's rival In 1936, who complained last week that the President "sprang" the change on the country "with the omnipotence of a Hitler." A majority of Democrats (i. those who voted for Mr. Roosevelt In 1936) loyally back him up today on the Thanksgiving issue. The usual words the typical presidential defender finds are (hit "it will hfip Christmas business," or that "the business men asked for it," or that "one dale'i good ati another," the survey show. A substantial number of Democrats, however, couldn't, find it in their hearts to subscribe to the change.

CLASH OVER THANKSGIVING. President Roosevelt and former Governor M. Landon, 1936 presidential rivals, were on opposite sides again as Landon criticized FDR's move to have Thanksgiving fall a week earlier. The majority of public--according to preliminary returns in an Institute survey--are on. Landon's side.

Nobody -sympathized with the turkey, center. The vole by parties is: Approve Plan Oppose Democrats 21 79 Others 33 67 Approximately one person in five said he had no opinion on the President's course. Typical of many of these was a Massachusetts carpenter's assistant who said: "It makes no difference to me when 1 celebrate Thanksgiving. It'll be just beefslew and A flay off--whenever it comes." INSERT THANKSGIVING COME TYPICAL REACTIONS Folio whip are some of the most typical individual comments both pro and con on the question nf movlnp Thanksgiving to a. week earlier: PRO Rhodfi Island wouldn't nave done it unless it were for the people's good."
