29 p. 

The purpose of this paper is to utilize data from 478 East Texas Negro sophomores to determine what extent (nonmetropolitan or metropolitan) residence and sex differences exist in the identity of reference individuals selected by adolescents. Major findings were (1) that place of residence makes less difference in the selection patterns than does sex; (2) that males and nonmetropolitan females select glamour figures more than any other type of reference individual, including parents; (3) that metropolitan males have a more diverse selection pattern than do nonmetropolitan males; (4) that males choose glamour figures substantially more than do females; and (5) that socioeconomic status controls did not alter the selection patterns: (a) place of residence differences by sex on such patterns are similar with or without the controls, and (b) sex differences by place of residence on such patterns are not only similar with or without the controls but make 2 of the patterns more pronounced. Implications of the findings for future research are made. (Author)
