support in poll
NEW YORK (AP)—American Catholics overwhelmingly approve
of Pope John Paul II’s leadership of their church, even if they disagree
with his positions on some social and moral issues, according to a
special Associated Press-NBC News poll.
As the Roman Catholic faithful prepare for the week-long papal
visit to this country, the poll found they tend to agree more with
Americans on some controversial matters than with the pope and the
leadership of their church.
BY A 66-27 margin, American Catholics think that the church
should approve of artificial methods of birth control, and by a 76-19
edge, they say that it is possible to use such methods and still be a good
They approve of divorce, even if children are involved, and they
think the church should recognize such disolutions of marriage.
By a 53-40 edge, they think priests should be allowed to marry.
BUT THEY split nearly evenly on the question of whether women
should be ordained as priests.
And abortion on demand causes a similar schism, with 50 percent in
favor and 45 percent against.
Seventy-nine percent of the Catholics said they approved of the way
the Pope has handled his role as head of the church, while 6 percent
said they disapproved. Fifteen percent were not sure.
Many non-Catholics admitted little knowledge about the pope.
Forty-six percent said they liked the way he has done his job, but
another 46 percent were not sure. Eight percent of the non-Catholics
THE SPECIAL AP-NBC News poll is based on telephone inter-
views with 1,600 adults across the country Sept. 24 and 25. Twenty-
eight percent of those interviewed (449 respondents) said they were
members of the Roman Catholic Church.
Despite the overwhelming good feeling toward the pope, this
country's Catholics disagree w ith many of the church’s positions on is-
sues that touch their lives.
As with every sample survey, the results of the AP-NBC News poll
can vary from the opinions of all those with telephones across the
country because of chance variations in the sample.
FOR POLLS with 1,600 interviews, the results should vary no more
than 3 percentage points either way simply because of sample error.
That is, if one could talk to all adults in the country, there is only one
chance out of 20 that the results would vary from the findings of this
poll b\ more than 3 percentage points.

doubles as chairman
Lt. Col. Phillip E. Moore, who began
serving this fall as commander of NT's
Air Force ROTC detachment and
chairman of the aerospace studies
department, said his assignment here is
the type that happens only once in a
military career, if at all.
Aerospace studies, the academic name
for ROTC, is designed for cadets as an
introduction to the Air Force.
Moore said as department head and
commander, his goal is “to produce the
kind of lieutenants that I would per-
sonally like to work with on active duty.
I don't want to he embarrassed about
Before coming to NT, Moore was
commander of the 321st Strategic Mis-
sile Squadron at F.E. Warren Air Base

ing the semester.
The session will be taught by Maple
Hall Resident Assistant Sandy Stevens.

bar bells in an effort to give the residents
a chance to become more familiar with
the uses of the new equipment. Dorm
President Liz Taylor said.
The money for the equipment came
from combined sources.
Each year, every dorm receives a sum
of money, and at the end of the ’78-’79
school year, Maple had a surplus. The
unused portion of the money must be
returned to the Housing Department if it
is not spent on something to benefit the
dormitory and its residents, Ms. Taylor
The association added money that is
received from last spring's job-a-thon
held to raise money for an ail-weather
mat at Fouls Field. Participating groups
were allowed to keep 50 percent of the
money they collected.
Moore received his bachelor’s degree
in management from OSU and his
masters degree in business administra-
tion from the University of Nebraska.
As assistant professor of aerospace
studies at the University of Nebraska, he

Everyone is aware of the jogging craze that has hit the United States
recently. Due to the public’s increased awareness of the health and ap-
pearance of exercise, more and more people are scheduling some type
of exercise routine into their lives.
However, people must be reminded that an exercise regime is only
part of a total body health program. What good does it do to exercise
and jog three times a week if you supply your body with high-fat, high-
sugar, and high-calorie foods?
A healthy eating regime to go along with your exercise program is
not only beneficial for health and appearance but is easy and inexpen-
The first step in healthy eating is to choose from these four groups:
meat, dairy products, breads and cereals, and fruits and vegetables.
Each time you eat a meal, include something from each of these
groups and be assured you are consuming a good variety of foods to
supply the proper nutrients needed by your body.
If you need help in designing your personal body health program or
have any other nutrition-oriented questions, write to Carol Beck,
registered dietician, Box 5066, N.T. Station.
