First In 48 Years Scientists, Hired by Radio Network, Find Soap Operas of Value to Society CHICAGO, Dec. 5 (UP)—An tin-1 woman's security threatened chlef- thiopologlst and a phychologlst I ly by the loss of the husband to tuned In on n radio daytime .serial oilier women, and milte secondarily Pirst girl to win the grand championship for the best barrow In 48 years history of the International Livestock Show, 10-year-old Moriam Meyer, descent 111., high school senior, hangs coveted blue ribbon on "Pal" afler 'the judging in Chicago. Miss Meyer earlier won the junior feeding contest. (NBA Tclephoto.) over a long period and came up yesterday with a ponderous report that soap operas are "of considerable value to our society." J'rof. W. Lloyd Warner, the an- j «' beliefs, thropologisl. and Dr. William K. (OT _ s .™y n) Henry, psychologist, based their report on a detailed study of the serialized drama, "Big Sister." The scholars arc consultants for Social Research, Inc., who described, the study on behalf of Columbia Broadcasting System which carries the play over its network. Since women arc the chief listeners, they receive the most benefit Irom sonp operas by having their ego built up and their spirits strengthened by hearing .stories of fictional women going through problems and experiences which parallel their own. "The basic and primary theme is Hint good and noble women \vho arc wives and mothers are invincible within their own arena of life, the American family," the report snlti. "Men, who arc superordinale elsewhere, arc subordinate and depend* put (in the slory) on the wisdom of the wife. This primary theme always triumphs over the second theme which runs counter to it that —family lies can be broken and a ami obliquely, by death." The social scientists sa;ci that the program, among other tilings, provides Its women listeners with "mor- values and techniques emotional and Inter personal problems... and makes them feel they ore learning while they listen." The soap opera, they said, "directs the private reveries and fantasies of the listeners Into socially approved channels of action... Increases the women's sense of security... and demonstrates that those who behave properly and stay away from wrongdoing exercise moral control over those who do not." One of their main points was that soap operas play up "the importance of the role of Ihe wife and therefore obliquely depreciates the role of career woman the ordinary listener has avoided or not been able to lake.
