SPECIAL NOTE:  With this survey (dated 8 January 1979 on the 
printed, store-distributed list), WABC abandons its long tradition 
of printing the survey on an 8 1/2 by 3 1/2 sheet of paper, in 
effect since 23 April 1963, for a larger format at 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 
(gaining an extra two inches in width).  This format will be in 
effect until 21 April 1981, when WABC reverts back to the 
traditional dimensions.
