plummets to new low

NEW YORK (AP)-Although public
judgment of President Carter's work
stands at a historic low, Americans say
Congress is doing an even poorer job,
an Associated Press-NBC News poll
Only about one out of eight
Americans-13 per cent-now give
Congress a good or excellent rating, the
lowest such figure found in the last
three years.
THAT COMPARES to the 19 per cent
approval mark for Carter found by the
poll, which was taken Sept, 10-11. Car-
ter's rating was the lowest for a
president since this question was first
asked nearly three decades ago.
While 13 per cent gave Congress'
work overall top marks, 47 per cent said
its work has been "only fair." Thirty-
six per cent called congressional work
poor, and four per cent of the 1,600
adults interviewed nationwide by
telephone were not sure..
In the April AP-NBC News survey, 20
per cent rated Congress good or ex-
cellent, 50 per cent only fair and 24 per
cent pooi. Six per cent in that survey
said they were not sure.
THE LATEST poll rating on Congress
indicates a substantial slippage after
more than a year of stability in the
public's rating of the nation's
legislature. Since May 1978, the public
consistently gave Congress from 20 per

cent to 23 per ,cent good or excellent
marks. But now the rating has dropped
seven points from that range to 13 pe)
On energy matters, the public again

THAT FINDING is down a bit froth
the figures in the April poll, when 10 per
cent said Congress' energy efforts were
good or excellent, 39 per cent said only
fair and 44 per cent said poor. Seven per
cent were not sure.
On energy, Carter got a low rating,
but it is still above the one given
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 about 1,600 interviews,
the results should vary no more than
three 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 qf
20 that the results would vary from the
findings of this poll by more than three
percentage points.

THERE ARE 900 homes in the Old
West Side area, which is bordered by
Ashley St. past Seventh and Huron to
Pauline. More than 600 residents are
members of the Old West Side
Association which was established in
The Association was formed because
of a possible threat to the neigh-
borhood's homogeneity. A three-story
housing project was proposed for
Ashley St., which residents saw as out
of character with the two.story frame
Butnow the Association exists
mainly to provide activities and ser-
vices to West-siders and to serve as an
information source to them. The
Association also serves as a connecting
force between the city and the West
Siders. -,
THE REVENUE. the Homes Tour
brings in from tickpt and refreshment
sales goes to the Association and is used
both to provide services and social
events, like a spring neighborhood
garage sale and a winter carnival.
"Our major expense is putting out the
Old West Side News, published 10 times
a year with information on activities
and feature stories about the neigh-
borhood," explained Evans. He added
that the newsletter and various social
events give the West-Siders an oppor-
tunity to meet the other residents.

The pride and tradition of the Old
West Side was officially recognized in
1972 when the neighborhood was placed

on the National Register of
places and in 1978 a local
District ordinance was passed.
