SEPT. 16

NEW YORK (AP) - Americans now
give President Carter the lowest job
rating of any president in nearly three
decades, as their unhappiness with his
handling of the economy and foreign af-
fairs has deepened, an Associated
Press-NBC News poll says.,
Despite Carter's midsummer efforts
to change the course and image of his
administration, he is now in serious
trouble with almost every segment of
the population - including politically
crucial ones like Democrats, Souther-
ners, small town, and rural residents,
and his 1976 supporters.
This weakness comes as Sen. Edward
Kennedy (D-Mass.), has revealed in
recent days that he is considering a
challenge to Carter for the party's
presidential nomination next year.
OVERALL, ONLY 19 per cent of
those interviewed nationwide Monday

rating reac
and Tuesday rated Carter's work ex-
cellent or good.
That is down six points from the AP-
NBC News July poll, which was his
previous low.
Forty-nine per cent said his efforts
are only fair and 30 per cent said they
were poor. Two per cent of the 1,600
adults interviewed nationwide by
telephone were not sure.
THE 19 PER cent mark is the lowest
ever received by an American
president since this rating question was
first asked in the 1950s.
Carter's key weaknesses in the
public's eyes are his handling of the
twin threats of inflation and recession
and his reaction to the presence of
Soviet combat troops in Cuba.
Here are some of the questions asked
on the AP-NBC News poll:
1. WHAT KIND of a job do you think
Jimmy Carter is doing as president? Do

you think he is doing an excellent job, a
good job, only a fair job, or do you think
he is doing a poor job?
2. What kind of a job do you think
Jimmy Carter is doing handling our
foreign affairs? Do you think he is doing
an excellent job, a good job, only a fair
job or do you think he is doing a poor
3. What kind of a job do you think
Jimmy Carter is doing handling our
energy problems? Do you think he is
doing an excellent job, a good job, only
a fair job, or do you think he is doing a
poor job?
ON HIS ,HANDLING of economic
problems in general, only ten per cent
of the public gave Carter an excellent
or good rating for his work on the
nation's economic woes - the loviest
job rating ever for Carter in any area.
Forty-seven per cent said his work has
been poor and forty per cent called it as

only fair. Three per cent were not sure.
On foreign policy in general, 22 per,
cent of those interviewed gave him top,
marks - down 11 points from July.
Forty-two per, cent rated his inter-
national efforts only fair and 32 per cent
said they were fair. Four per cent were
not sure.

with the Soviets about the troops. That-
finding is 12 points more negative than-

NBC News survey.
Thirty-one per cent said this week:

The group is requesting that it be in-

that Friday morning's meeting be

Much of the group's plan depends on
the number of supporters it attracts to
the Regents meeting. It will hold a rally
at noon on the Diag Thursday to draw

"In the 1950's and 60's, professoris
were paid a relatively high level cont-
pared to other professions. That's less
true now," explained Arthur Miller, an
associate research scientist at the In-
stitute for Social Research (ISR).
"People in academia have takeb
cuts. 'Funding and salaries haven't kejt
up with inflation," Miller said.,"The
strongest researchers are the first to
leave because they have the best oppor-
tunities in the private sector. It's really
a question of how much does it take
before a researcher thinks it's not wor-
th it anymore," he said.
Miller said universities will suffer
greatly from the loss of the top reseat-
chers. Academic administrators will
have to offer incentives to bring them
back. "It's a cyclical thing," he said.
"It will have to reverse itself, but the
70's simply aren't like the 60's were."
But until that time, universities will
suffer, Duderstadt agreed. "It used to
be the best place to do research was on
a campus. That's no longer true. Now
industry attracts research becauso
they don't have to put up with as man'
hassles and administrative burdens, '
he said.

HP makes professional scientific calculators students can afford.

Bet that bit of news really elevated your
equations! Hewlett-Packard, the people who
make some of the world's most dynamic calcula-
tors, now makes models just for your needs
and budget-Series E.
Wow! The first one is the HP-31E
Scientific, now available at a NEW LOW PRICE
-$50* It's areal corker of a basic scientific
calculator. It has all the trigonometric, exponen-
tial and math functions you need most. Not
only that, it handles metric conversions. And if
that's not enough, it has both Fixed and Scientific
display modes and 4 separate user memories.
Want more? Then take the HP-32E
Advanced Scientific with Statistics, also at a
NEW LOW PRICE- $70* It's everything the
HP-31E is-and more! More math and metric,
comprehensive statistics, decimal degree conver-
sions, Engineering/Scientific/Fixed display

49 program lines of fully merged keycodes; a
dazzling array of program control keys; and 8
user memories. Never again shy away from a
sinister calculation!
And listen to this: every Series E calcula-
tor comes with a new larger, 10-digit display
with commas to separate thousands for easier
reading; diagnostic systems to help you catch and
correct errors; a low battery warning light;
rechargeable batteries and more.
Surely, there is a Series E calculator that
is right for you. Which one? I suggest that you
stop by your HP dealer for a "hands-on"
demonstration and a free copy of "A buyer's guide
