Many oilier women helped man read the moon-- and turn his eye. farther out in space-- as em ployes of private industry or re cipients of study grants. · W h a t kinds of jobs do Ihcj do? "Everylhing from aslrophys ic's to zoology," said Merv Hughes, coordinator of federa .women's programs at the Manned Spacecraft Center. Hughes keeps a paternal eye nn his "girls" at MSC. He has faith in their abilities-- some times more than they do. "We have ana aggressive equal employment opportunity policy," he said, "and one ol our main goals is to move women out of the traditional jobs -- Ihe clerical, Kecrclarial positions -- into those areas where they can enjoy Ihe pleasures of gelling gray hairs in making decisions willi Ihe men." Hughes said Ihal of Ihe 1,000 women employed by NASA at MSC, about 170 are in professional positions, from engineers and Icchnicians lo one nurse and 93 administrators (personnel managers, budget officers). Hughes is aware, however, lo Iry a little harder. "Women have to do a better job in anything they do," he said. "They must run faster lo slay in the race." Space program women wor ers lend to agree with Hughes. Poppy Norlhcuit, a mathematician for Thomson-Ramo-Woo driilgc Inc., (TRW), one of Ihe NASA's contractor firms on the Apollo moon program, had Ibis to sy; "This is a good field for women and the pay is certain! adequate. I think there's less discriminalioin against women in jobs with a lechnical orien- talion. The men are Ihinkin about loo many other things 1 be prejudiced. In oilier words, if a woman can do her job, is she acceptet Poppy smiled"If she can do her job well," she said. Miss Norlhcuit brought up another aspect of women's em- ploymenl in the space program. "I'm very concerned abou the lack of women asking for jobs." There's a lack of oppor- ttinily for women when there are simply not enough women asking for jobs lo fell." Mrs. Fossler, who said she "ell she never had been discriminated against, agreed with Poppy Northcull. "There aren't very many vomen here," she said, "because (hoy just are not coming out of the schools. Most of (he women employes concurred thai opportunities vere good for women at NASA. Marilyn Bockting moved up rom an executive secretary's oh lo administrative assislan o Ihe manager of (he Apollo rogram when she joined (he Space Agency.

"And, at the risk of being sickening, I have to say I have never had a job I was excited about as this one. There is something about this business that is tremendously hard to describe." HHa Rapp, whose job of feeding astronauts in flight is described by Merv Hughes as "one of the most important jobs in NASA, male or female," thinks women have good opportunities wilh the space program. "f think it is an area of equa opportunity for women an men," she said. "Of course, have lo admit that as far as the spacecraft end of it goes I'm the only woman you see a all the meetings. It's difficul lo see who's available some times -- but I'm rather promi nent." Josephine Jue, an aerospace Icchnologist-data analyst, saic she found good opportunities for women at NASA, plus benefit not found in industry. "Our salaries are comparable to industry or better," Mrs Jue said, "and we get 20 days leave aflcr three years and 13 days' sick leave. Ginny Hughes, Merv's wife also mentioned benefits. "Women have a better chance with government than wilh priv ate industry," she said. "J am )L'ller off wilh NASA, both because of more opportunities and nore benefits-" At that, Merv Hughes, the champion of woman's cause in he MSC personnel office, could- I't resist sounding like a hus- and. "You'd never have made any- liing of yourself," he said wilh sly glance at Ginny, "if you ladn't married me." 1-,15-KFKA: Music 2:00-KFKA: News, Music 2:30-KFKA: Profile, Music KCBL: Profiles, sound 3:00-KFKA: News, Music 3:.10-KFKA: Spts, Music 4:00-KFKA: News, Music ·1:30-KFKA: Editorial, Music KCBL: Review, sound 4M5-KFKA: Want Ads 5:00-KUAD: Dalz Show KFKA: News, Wtr, Spts KYOU: News 75 Markets, News Sports 5:15-KYOU 5:45-KYOU KFKA 6:00-KYOU This is Greeley News KCRL: News, Periscope KCBL: Spotlight, Sound 7:30-KGHE: Col.

Aldrin .Ir. proposed today thai world leaders take a trip to the moon before tackling the problems of earth. "We felt it would he very refreshing," he said, "lo have many leaders of the world come on a space flight and look back and be treated to that beautiful sight (of earth)." Aldrin made his comments at a news conference following a frenzied Pakistani welcome for the three American spacemen on the Apollo 11 crew's 20th stop in their 22-country world tour. Explaining how the world KFKA: Circle JR Ranch lools from lie moon, Aldrin 6:15-KYOU: South of Border saifl . " w c never see any boundaries anywhere. We don't see differences. We don't see many of these problems that do exist. We have full many of these problems that occupy our daily thoughts smaller now that we have had Ihe opportunity lo look at earth from a greater distance." Pakistani newsmen questioned Aldrin, Apollo commander Neil A. Armstrong, and Col. Michael Collins about Vietnam and the value of spending money on a moon shot many are in need on earth. The last question was pertinent to East Pakistan where the United States has just started providing 1.7 million Ions of wheat lo meel the food shortage. "Politics baffles us," Armstrong said. He added that the teamwork of Ihe moon landing showed how lo solve difficult problems. Ti»r,day, October 21 4:00-KLZ: Andy Griffith Sh'w KOA: Truth or Consq.
