Pope's conservative stands cause discontent

From Reuter. AP and UPI
VATICAN CITY - Pope John Paul II
arrived home from his triumphal tour
of the United States and Ireland yester-
day to a groundswell of discontent
among church progressives over the
firm orthodox line he took during the
Visibly tired, the 59-year-old. pope
spent six hours in Rome and then flew
on to what Vatican officials said would
be a two-day rest at the papal summer
residence at nearby Castelgandolfo.
THE PONTIFF hinted he would like
to go back to the United States some
time, saying he wants "more direct and
familiar contact" with the American
When he returns to the Vatican
tomorrow, Vatican sources said he is'

sure to face some unfavorable reac-
tions from progressives on the way he
spoke out repeatedly against abortion,
birth control, divorce and the or-
dination of women.
The sources said they expected the
issues to be debated again next month
when the pope meets 130 cardinals from
every continent to assess the first year
of his reign.
THE POPE celebrates the anniver-
sary of his elevation to the papacy on
October 16.
He arrived at Rome's Fiumicino Air-
port yesterday from Washington to a
welcome from a crowd of 2,000 headed
by Italian Premier Francesco Cossiga,
20 cardinals and Rome's Communist
Mayor Luigi Petriselli.
Summing up briefly his 10-day
pilgrimage, the pope said that in

Ireland he had prayed for peace and
reconciliation of the Irish people and
later, at the UN, reaffirmed the
Vatican's keen interst in promoting
peace, justice and human rights.
JOHN PAUL II then flew by helicop-
ter to Vatican City, where several
thousand tourists cheered him in St.
Peter's Square.
"I am back, I am back," the pope said
in a brief appearance at the window of
his apartment. "I am grateful for the
providence which has guided me in
these days and which has brought .me
back to Rome."
In Washington, groups favoring the
right to liberal abortions planned
massive campaigns to counter the
pope's message which gained un-
precedented exposure.

THE POPE ALSO left behind an
American Catholic Church now braced
for heightened internal conflict.
Both liberals and conservatives had
hoped for a papal blessing for their
views and Pope John Paul came down
emphatically on the side of the
traditionalists, thus helping to polarize
At no point did the pope bend on
traditional Catholic codes, and this
provoked an unexpected public
challenge Sunday from a gray-haired

nun who nervously implored him to*
consider letting women hake a role in
all the ministries of the faith.
The challenge came in the Shrine of
the Immaculate Conception from Sister
Theresa Kane, a member of the Sisters
of Mercy of the Union order and
president of the U.S. Leadership Con-
ference of Women Religious.
"I URGE YOU to be mindful of the in-
tense suffering and pain which is part of
the life of many women in the United
States," Sister Kane, wearing street

clothes instead of a nun's habit, told the
pope Sunday at the beginning of a
prayer service with 5,000 sisters in the
"The church must respond with the
possibility of allowing women to be in-
cluded, as persons, in all ministries of
our church," she said, her voice
quavering with emotion.
The pope had rejected the idea of
women becoming priests, claiming that
Jesus had specifically barred them
from the priesthood.

EngineeringSchool. centralizes
study on-'future 'auto technology

Now that the federal government is
looking harder for a car suited to the
nation's future energy and pollution
standards, the University has cen-
tralized its own automobile-related
research efforts.
The University's Office for the Study
of Automotive Transportation (OSAT)
was established by the College of
Engineering one year ago to coordinate
auto-related research on campus. Since
dozens of auto research' projects are
simultaneously conducted at the
University, a major purpose of OSAT is
to keep a tally on the various research
projects and to prevent project
OSAT IS operated by a director who
works only half-time and is aided by a
half-time assistant. But OSAT Director
David Cole said since his office doesn't
-conduct research itself, a larger staff is
Cole, a professor of medical
engineering, said since many factors
that have to be considered in
developing new automotive designs and
transportation systems, research won't
be restricted to engineers. He said
availability and cost of energy sources,
environmental effects, consumer
awareness, and industrial interdepen-
dence are vital topics that haven't in
the past played a large role in auto
Those factors, Cole said, have com-
plicated the relationship between con-
sumers, manufacturers, and the gover-
AND TO DEAL with new technical,
economic, and social challenges, the

professor said OSAT will encourage
various University research groups to
work together.
"In areas such as engineering, the
basic sciences, business, medicine, and
many of the social sciences, Michigan
is eminently qualified to provide the
various support services needed by
leaders in the automobile industry by
government officials, consumer ad-
vocates, (and) resources planners,"
Cole stated.

Cole added that OSAT will seek to in-
volve undergraduate and graduate
students in developing alternative
automobiles and enhance interaction
between industry and government
In addition, OSAT intends to provide
a "focus for the automotive industry's
major problems, both technical and
non-technical" and to help University
research groups win grants from
private and public organizations.

Instead, they can go to the Student

wood shop opened Sunday for students
who are handy with tools such as disc-
sanders and joiners but find them hard
to come by on campus.
GARY SMITH, the shop's manager,
said while the local Artist and Craf-

classes in the shop, the facility will ser-
ve primarily as a "drop-in center"

cluded there was need for campus
woodworking facilities.
The $32,000 needed for constructing
the facility and purchasing equipment
came in large part from the $1.50
assessed to students each term for
Michigan Union and SAB renovation.
The shop has an excess of $8,000 which
will be used to buy equipment in the
THOUGH MOST of the shop's funding
is through the assessments, students
are charged $10 to use the shop for a
term, $8 for six to 10 weeks, $4 for one to
four weeks, and 50 cents per day. In ad-
dition, lockers are available for storing
projects at $9 per semester or 25 cents
University staff and alumni can use
the shop, but must pay a higher fee than
students and have lower priority in
using equipment.
David Fauman, the shop's assistant
manager, said he encourages students
to taketadvantage of the facility, which
takes the place of the Theater Arts
Workshop now housed near Michigan-
"WOMEN SHOULD especially come
because they've been denied the oppor-
tunity to use their hands for
recreation," he said. "After being
buried in the UGLI and you don't want a
demanding intellectual activity, come
by and give it (the shop) a try."
Until Sunday, the only woodshop
available for recreational use was in
the Art and Architecture building on
North Campus. But that facility was
generally reserved for students
working on specific class projects.
The shop is open 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Mondays and Tuesdays, 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Wednesdays, 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Thur-
sdays and Fridays, and 1 p.m. to 8p.m.
