VATICAN CITY (AP) - Cardinal

pope of the Roman Catholic Church

plans to follow in the steps of his three
immediate predecessors - John XXIII,
Paul VI, and John Paul I, who died
Sept. 28 after a reign of only 34 days.
Wojtyla's election came on the seven-
th or eighth ballot of the conclave of 111
cardinals in the Sistine Chapel that
began Saturday evening.
THE SELECTION of the Polish arch-
bishop satisfied one of the conditions
expressed by cardinals before the con-
clave - that Pope John Paul's suc-
cessor also have a pastoral
background. Buthagain the cardinals
picked a man whose experience in the
Vatican's administrative machinery
His election was viewed as another
step in the church's process of inter-
nationalization, a process spurred by
Pope Paul VI. For this reason, many
Catholic scholars here were jubilant
over the choice, calling it historic. "It is
fantastic," several said over and over.
Wojtyla was born in Wadowice, 23
miles from Krakow, on May 18, 1920
His mother died when he was nine and
his father died at the beginning of
World War II.
WHILE ATTENDING secondary
school and college, he worked in a
Krakow chemical factory, where he set
up a recreation and education center
for his fellow workers.
After his ordination in Poland in 1946,
he went to Rome and studied at the
Angelicum College, earning a doctorate
in philosophy in 1948.
He returned to Poland and worked as
a parish assistant in the Krakow arch-
diocese under the severe restrictions on
religion imposed by the Communists.
HE LATER earned another doc-
torate, in theology, and taught as a
professor at the Catholic universities of
Lublin and Krakow. He was named
titular bishop of Ombi, Poland, on July
4, 2958, and archbishop of Krakow on
Jan. 13, 1964.
In Washington, President Carter said
the election of Pope John Paul II was
'very exciting' and "a very good
Carter, offering congratulations to
the new pope, said he added his "sense
of joy to that felt around the world"
upon the pope's election.
He praised the College of Cardinals
for twice in eight weeks choosing popes
who "have filled the church and the
world with new hope."

ERSION CALLED 'IMPROVEMENT':
Carter tax bill OK
By SHELLEY WOLSON
The Organizing Committee for
Clericals (OCC) and the University
Friday reached a tentative agreement
for a certification election to decide if
clerical workers want to unionize.
The agreement was made at a
meeting between representatives from
the OCC, the Michigan Employment
Relations Commission (MERC), and
The special hearing determined the
bargaining unit - who would be
represented by the union - and also set
up terms for the election. The
bargaining unit would be composed of
all regular, full- and part-time Univer-
sity clerical employees and the election
will be held Nov. 13-17.
The agreements are now in effect,
pending verification of "show of in-
terest" cards submitted by OCC. The
cards, signed by clericals at the
University, were collected prior to the
hearing. Validation of the signatures is
expected sometime today.
In order to petition for a union elec-
tion, the OCC had to have 30 per cent of
the approximately 3000 possible
clerical signatures. occ started
collecting signatures in June of 1977,
