By AMERICAN INSTITUTE . ef PUBLIC OPINION PRINCETON, NJ, Oet 13 The Truman Administration faces a serious problem I winning full public support for the Marshall Plan. " ' " " The problem grows out of lack of public familiarity with (1) the plan Itself, and (21 the situation In Europe which the plan la - designed to meet. . Proof of the existence of the problem Is that Americans who are the most familiar 'with the Mar shall Plan give It a favorable vote. Those not familiar with It give It an unfavorable vote when the plan is explained to them in terms of lending money to help European countries. The first hurdle which the State Department faces la that only about halt the voters of the nation say they have heard or read of the Marshall plan. From coast - to - coast interviewers for the Institute asked voters: "Have yeu heard er read about the Marshall Plant" The vote: Yes 49ft No 91 Those who have heard of the plan were then asked the question: ' "What Is you understanding af the purpose ef the plan?" , A great deal of vagueness and confusion in the public mind la revealed In the answers to that question. About one in nve gave an essentially correct definition that is, a plan for European recovery which supplements self - help on the part of European countries with needed assistance from us. When all who had heard of It were asked: "What Is yeu repelnlen of the plant" it was'foud that most of . them ' had a favorable opinion In general, the proportion of favorable answers being Ugliest among the best - Informed. But when the plan is explained in terms of extending Joans for billions of dollars to certain Euro - peon countries. In order to help them to get back on their feet, voters with little previous knowledge about the plan express unfavorable views. On the basis ef this evidence. It would appear that the support given by the public to Secretary Marshall's key Item of foreign policy will depend almost en. tirely on hew the government, J the preea and other mass media explain the plan during the next few weeka and months to thee who have little or ne familiarity with It new. This' is indicated In answers to the following question: . "Would yeu favor or oppose lending western European countries like England, Prance, Hot - land and Norway about I billion dollars a year fer S er 4 years te improve conditions and help te get buslnese going In these countries?" The vote by the various groups follows. Note how the favorable vote drops and Use e: ;a - 'Uosi rises according to degree of ItUormaUon of ttse voter. 'ev.
