Pope's charisma draws crowds

that his human rights pleas have lost
credibility because of his opposition to
women in the priesthood.
The groups - the Boston Women's,
Ordination Conference and the
Women's Theological Coalition at the
Boston Theological Institute - sent
similar messages to the pope stating
that the credibility of his call to end
discrimination based on sex has been
diminished by the church's continual
denial of women's ordination to the

SUCH CRITICISMS of the pope,
however, seem to have had little impact
on the Chicago crowd attending the

papal Mass in Grant Park.
"I know he's come out with the same
traditional views of the religion, but it
really doesn't matter. He's our leader
and he presents us hope while everyone
else seeks destruction," said Rick
Brock, a construction worker from Hin-
sdale, Illinois.
Others at the mass went to great
lengths to point out that the pontiff's
view of divisive issues were indeed im-
portant to the future of the church, but,
in effect, had no real impact on their
"I think a lot of people may listen to
what he says. But more important to
me, is what he can do for us and what he
can do for the cause of world peace,"
said Terry Gurgine of North Lake, a
Chicago suburb.
Those sentiments were echoed by
other well-wishers who had waited
nearly ten hours at Grant Park to hear
the papal Mass. Wrapped tightly in
blankets and carrying a full load of food
and beverages, many families had

camped out near the shores of Lake
Michigan. They appeared more like
frenzied youngsters seeking concert
tickets than a crowd attending a sacred
FOR SOME, while the pope's
statements on Catholic doctrine
seemed conservative, his views of
current international affairs represen-
ted a dramatic and radical shift from

past positions espoused by the Vatican.
During his trips to Mexico, Ireland,
Poland, and now the U.S., the pope has
taken a much more active role in the
world political arena than his
predecessors. In Poland, he denounced
a regime that violates the human rights
of its citizens, and last week, while
visiting Ireland, he called for a cease-
fire in that country's civil war.

of John Cardinal Cody where the pope
was spending the night. That group was
rewarded early this morning when the
pope appeared on the balcony of the
house to wave and clap with them.
The pope's morning itinerary in-
cluded a brief meeting with to
predominantly Latino crowd of
Catholic charity workers to whoi he
spoke in both English and Spanish. The
pope also conducted an early morning
Mass in Polish, the only one during his
tour held specifically for the Polish
At every block along the papal
motorcade route, crowds gathered
early to cheer, catch a glimpse of the
pontiff waving from the sunroof of his
limousine, and to shout "Papey." Many

persons in crowds at the Polish church,
at the seminary,, and along the streets,
waved banners, white and gold Vatican
flags, and posters proclaiming
"Witamy," Polish for "welcome."
The entire city was almost com-
pletely shut down for the papal visit. All
public schools and some private
schools were closed yesterday, as were
most businesses and shops. Traffic was
banned from most major streets in the
downtown area.
Tomorrow, the pope - who has ap-
peared alternately weary and energetic
on his historic, grueling odyssey - flies
to Washington for a White House
meeting with President Carter. Sunday
he conducts a mass on the Mall before
flying home to Rome.

PARTICIPATING IN THE signing of a contract between the University
Cellar and the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) are (left to right)
John Sappington, assistant manager; Nelson Jacobson, president of the
University Cellar Board of Directors; and IWW negotiators Deb Filler,
Felicia Casanos, and Lisa Blake. The contract is the first reached between
the IWW and the University Cellar.

organization drive, last fall the em-
ployees voted.to be represented by the
IWW as their bargaining agent and con-.
tract negotiations began in March.
In April, the board withdrew a
proposal to implement a hierarchical
structure in the store, due to vehement
union protest. The union demanded the
collective decision-making procedures
followed in the store be maintained and
that language guaranteeing it be in-
cluded in the contract.
DURING THE summer, negotiations
proceeded slowly, marred by misun-
derstandings and disputes over
grievance and hiring procedures and.
definitions of the bargaining unit.
The union walked off the job for three'
days in August because of the lack of
progress in negotiations, and to em-
phasize the need for a settlement before
book rush.
After intense negotiations, the union
ratified a version of the contract Labor
Day, but revisions presented by the
board and then the union delayed a set-
tlement. The board ratified another
version Sept. 17.
THE SIGNERS said the pact would
help ease tensions in the store and im-
prove services to students.

The atmosphere in the store was "on
an upswing" Sappington said. Now that
the contract has been signed, Sap-
pington added, employees and
management can concentrate on "run-
ning the store the way it should be run."
Board President Jacobson said an
oversight committee established by the
contract totwork out disputes between
employees and management will in-
clude two student board members and
two union members.
Jacobson said the contract is
"significant" since it guarantees
worker input in many aspects of the
store which are usually considered
management prerogatives, such as
hiring, scheduling and ordering.
"It means a lot of work," Jacobson
said. "It's a very optimistic approach."
Union negotiator Cassanos also noted
the unique status of the store and the
contract that resulted. "The people in
the department have a say," she said.
"That's not usually built in (to a con-
Before the U-Cellar employees
organized last winter, there was a
"tendency toward more centralized
management" in the store, union
organizer Fred Chase said recently.
