Saunders Research Diredor For Magazine Corp. Directs Interviews to Learn What Women Read and Do Not Read Don F. Saunders. who is director of the division of reader research for a large magazine publisher's corporation in New York, is given the responsibility of finding out what women in their homes and In offices and stores read and what they do not. read in the four magazines issued by the company. In achieving this for the publisher Mr. Saunders has a «taff of six associates, who have charge of the corps of field investigators in representative cities, and towns In rural areas, whose duties are to interview a cross-section of women readers each month, recording the noting and reading on every page of the current women's service magazines which the interviewee ha* previously read. The p*ge-by-page Interviewing technique enables the respondent to recognize the material she has seen and read. The interviewers' marked copies of the magazines are returned to New York, where they are tabulated and percentaged. Thus a record of the newsstand sates from M0.963 to an average of more than 1.600,000 per [month, which bespeaks Ifi* roccesr the Sterling young man has attained in the duties of the'of flee assigned to him by this large publishing corporation.
