Even during last week's wild ride on Wall Street, which began with the second-largest point drop ever in the Dow Jones industrial average, two-thirds of American adults say they have not changed their spending habits. Nearly 90 percent of those polled said their family's financial situation is at least as good now as a year ago — and more than 90 percent said they believed it would be as good or better a year from now. How respondents to the survey — conducted Sept. 2-6 for The Associated Press by ICR of Media, Pa. — ranked their economic concerns could explain why they've kept their positive outlook. At a time when mortgage rates are below 7 percent, inflation is the best in a generation and unemployment is near a 28-year low, most of those polled said interest rates and the job market are more important to them than the stock market. "My husband has a really secure job. He's a computer programmer," said Leslie Crismon, 33, a homemaker in Phoenix. "We have less money on paper, but it's not worrying us right now." Forty-four percent cited interest rates as the most important to them, 35 percent the job market and 13 percent the stock market. "Mortgage and loan rates ... will determine if I buy another new home ... even what kind of car I may buy in the future," said truck driver Martin Gasinger, 30, of Hubbard, Ore. Low interest rates are supporting the confidence of both home- buyerfl and homeowners who have recently refinanced mortgages, said economist Lynn Reaser of NationeBank Corp. in Jacksonville, Fla. "Interest rates have been the silver lining of all the difficulties in the international economy and the domestic, stock market that we've witnessed," Reaser said.

Even though most survey respondents had not changed their spending in response to the stock market, a significant minority — 30 percent —• said recent financial news had made them more cautious about spending. Whether they own stock appeared to make no difference: The proportion of cautious spenders was virtually the same. The news headlines about the stock market are making people nervpus about the general direction of the economy," Reaser said. "It's the general anxiety as opposed to specific losses." MOSCOW (AP) — Bowing to bitter opposition from parliament, President Boris Yeltsin nominated former spy chief Yevgeny Primakov today as prime minister to head emergency efforts to stem the country's economic crisis. Yeltsin proposed Primakov, Russia's foreign minister, after his first choice, Viktor Cherno- myrdin, asked not to be nominated for a third time. Leaders on all sides had warned of a political explosion if Yeltsin again chose Chernomyrdin. "In view of the repeated rejection of (Chernomyrdin) ... I ask the State Duma to confirm the appointment of Yevgeny Maximo vich Primakov as chairman of the government," Yeltsin said in a brief letter. Opposition and pro-government political leaders promptly welcomed Primakov's nomination, predicting the Communist-dominated lowe chamber of parliament, the Duma, would approve him. The White House also praised Primakov. A confirmation vote could come as early as Friday. "I think he will get the Duma's support. Common sense has prevailed," said Communist leader Gennady Zyuganov, who led the opposition to Chernomyrdin. Pri- makov is "known in the country and in the world and can carry out policies defending the interests of the nation." Chernomyrdin, meanwhile, said lawmakers' refusal to confirm him was part of a Communist plot to force Yeltsin to resign and seize power. "It's a creeping coup." In a televised address, Cherno- myrdin reproached Yeltsin for making concessions, urging him: "Show will!" - ..'...' The only opposition to Prima-. kov came from nationalist Vladimir Zhirinovsky of the Liberal Democratic Party, who denounced Primakov as an American puppet. As foreign minister, Primakov was widely seen as a nationalist, working to restore some of the international status Moscow lost after the collapse of the Soviet Union. He briefly was first deputy director of the KGB, the-main So- viet security organization, and later headed a KGB successor, Russia's Foreign Intelligence Service. In Washington today, White House press secretary Mike McCurry said, The United States government knows and respects Foreign Minister Primakov. ... We would expect to have a good and close working relationship with Prime Minister Primakov." Yeltsin announced the nomination after meeting in the Kremlin with Primakov and Chernomyr- din. "I cannot harm Russia. Russia has had enough upheavals this . ceotjiry. This is my choree," Cher- nomyrdin said. Yeltsin and the Duma have been locked in a two-week battle over the prime minister's post that stalled the formation of a new government after Cherno- myrdin was rejected twice by lawmakers. If the Puma rejects Primakov the president would be forced by law to dissolve parliament and call new elections. Primakov spoke today by phone with German Foreign Minister Klaus Kinkel, assuring him that Russia would stick to its current economic and foreign policy. , Ct-OVERLAND + OIISiEIVIAS •32-4424 Held Or*r EVER AFTER SKW tllMMOIl OB Showtime* 7:00 ft 9:15 Starts Friday Kodak Film Developing Hot Price every d-'V 4" Double Prints 2 for 1 Every Day Camera Mam Street.
