"They're switching from 'me' ap- peals to ads that promote group af- filiation," said Dr. James McNeal. "Fewer ads can be characterized by self-interest or self-satisfaction. In- stead, more are appealing to the needs of interpersonal relationships and belonging." McNeal, Dr. Stephen W. McDaniel and 11 Texas A&M graduate students viewed more than 4,500 hours of television over a three-month period to determine major need appeals within 416 closely evaluated commercials. "A common automobile ad today, for example, would probably show a per- son buying a car because it attracts people," McNeal said, "instead of em- phasizing the car as a symbol of in- dividual expression." Appeals to individualism are still found in TV commercials, but not nearly so much as they were in the '70s, he said, TERESA GRAGSON--RON ZILLS Mr. and Mrs.Leroy Gragson of Tool announce the proaching marriage of their daughter, Teresa, to Ron Zills. also The future bridegroom is the son of Carl Zills of Florance, Louise Hill of Ypsilanti, Michi.
