Teaching Versus Research
4 Firing ’ Forum Attacks Priorities
By JOHN CRAY
Kernel Staff Writer
Good teaching is being per-
ceived today as a dangerous phe-
nomenon, when you mean by
good teaching a primary concern
for undergraduate education,”
Dr. Gene Mason told a crowd of
over 800 in the Student Center
Mason, whose teaching con-
tract has not been renewed, was
speaking at a Forum on Faculty
Hiring and Firing called by Stu-
dent Government President Steve
Forced Against His Nature
Mason said the situation of
a university administrator is simi-
lar to the situation that faced
Adolph Eichmann, a Nazi war
criminal, in that he is forced by
the institution he works for to
do things against his nature.
Mason said the ‘ typical ad-
ministrator” is concerned with
the reputation of his institution
and tries to gear its programs
to match the "so-called quality
Mason, whose speech was in-
terrupted several times by bursts
of applause from the predomin-
antly student audience, denounc-
ed what he called an overem-
phasis of research at the Uni-
Dr. Byron Petrakis, an assis-
tant professor of English whose
contract is also not being renew-
ed, spoke after Mason and con-
tinued the attack on the alleged
“publish or perish” policy of
Incentives to Neglect Students
Petrakis argued that the rea-
son research was stressed at UK
was because "the incentives to
neglect students and do research
are greater,” claiming that “re-
search-oriented” professors earn
more and are promoted faster.
Dr. Wimberly Royster, dean
of the College of Arts and Sci-
ences, denied the overemphasis
on research at UK and claimed
that “the best teachers fit the
mold of teacher and scholar.”
Royster, who was booed and
yelled at during much of his
speech, refused to talk about
any "specific cases of hiring or
firing” because he felt it would
be “inappropriate and unethi-
cal.” Mason and Petrakis both
expressed willingness to talk
about their cases but Royster
still refused. His stand brought
angry shouts and boos from the

Yesterday’s “Hiring and Fir-
ing” forum suddenly provided a
rare and somewhat unique look
into the complexity of the simple
cliche— “Publish or Perish.”
An opportunity to listen and
ask questions of four professors
who challenged the “system,”
as well as several University ad-
ministrators who are a part of
the hierarchy which refused to
renew the teaching contracts of
In the past, it has taken such
things as large in scope as the
Vietnam war to make students
demand rational answers about
where the University stands on
Suddenly, mostly due to the
student popularity of professors
such as Gene Mason and Pat
White, rational answers are being
sought about why teachers rated
highly by students are being fired.
The significance of yesterday’s
forum is not that any answers
were provided, although certain
opinions were certainly heard.
It’s not important that faculty
members could make meaningful
and sincere speeches about “the
crisis of higher education" while
University administrators fum-
bled and stuttered through com-
plex policies about faculty and
The real meaning to be drawn
out of yesterday’s confrontation
is the genuine concern about the

Two Arrested on Campus by LPD
By DALE MATTHEWS
Kernel Staff Writer
City and county policemen converged on
UK’s Botanical Cardens Tuesday and ar-
rested two persons.
David Brown, a UK student, was ar-
rested for loitering. Robert Arnold, a non-
student, was arrested on charges of dis-
orderly conduct and carrying a concealed
The arrests were made during a gathering

billed on mimeographed leaflets as a “Fuck-
Brown said that he had been in the
Student Center grill and went to the Bo-
tanical Cardens to “see if anything was
going on." Once there, he said, “I started
rapping with Thornton (a detective with the
Lexington Police Departments narcotics
squad) and asked what they (off-campus
police) were doing on campus.”
After talking for a short time with the
officers, hecontinued, “Vance(FayetteCoun-
ty deputy sheriff) gulled out his I.D. and
asked me for mine. ” When Brown could not
produce an I.D., Vance arrested him for
While Brown was still in custody at
county police headquarters, a group of stu-
dents went to law professor Robert Sedler s
office. During the meeting with Sedler, several
students who had been in the gardens claimed
that the police were taking photographs
“of everybody. ”
Sedler was of the opinion that “police
intelligence" tactics of the land constituted
a “chilling effect on student assembly” and
that efforts should be made to prevent off-
campus police from coming on campus un-
less they were ‘‘requested by the director of
Safety and Security.”
Sedler also made arrangements with Dean
of Students Jack Hall to have a meeting
Tuesday night, including Hall, Vice Presi-
dent for Student Affairs Robert Zumwinkle,
Director of Safety and Security Joe Burch
and four students— student body President
Steve Bright, Lew Col ten, Sam Mason and
“This is a time when the administration
and the students should not be at a stand-
off. They should work together, ” saidColten.
After the meeting. Bright said that, “I
think we made our concern unquestionably
clear. Taking pictures at every student
gathering obviously intimidates students, and
makes them reluctant to assemble.
It was learned Wednesday that the charges
against Brown had been filed away and would
not be pressed.
The fact that a University
vice president would agree to try
to explain the procedure by which
professors are fired to more than
a thousand students at an open
forum shows that the administra-
tion at least realized that more
than a handful of students is up-
set with their decisions.
Numbers are important to ad-
ministrators. They use them to
evaluate their peers, to name
students on computer cards, to
count up their investments in rail-
road stocks. The numbers of dis-
satisfied undergraduates surely
must mean something.
Although student frustration
with the lack of specific answers,
especially with the case of Cene
Mason which hints at political
maneuvers, often resulted in
shouts of strike and class boy-
cott, the majority of students
seemed to be earnestly looking
for legitimate channels through
which to protest and change the
causes and results of the firings.
Whether or not any real chan-
nels were discovered remains to
What hopefully did come
across at the forum, was the
point, especially well expressed
by Byron Petrakis, assistant pro-
fessor of English. He took issue
with the fact that teacher evalua-
tion is based purely on the num-
ber of articles published in a
specialized referee Journal.
Often faculty members stood
to praise the benefits of good
research. This is not the cause
Students simply want the de-
finition of research made real-
istic, rather than the evaluation

themselves counting and playirg

The fate of closed circuit tele-
vising of UK basketball games
will be known by Jan. 4, ac-
cording to Lawrence Forgy, vice
president for business affairs.
Forgy restated Tuesday the
agreement between UK and the
New York firm in charge of the
broadcasts. According to that
agreement, an average atten-
dance of 4,000 must be obtained
at the first two road- games tele-
casts if the remaining games are
to be televised.
Attendance at the Indiana
game (Dec. 12) and the Missis-
sippi State contest (Jan. 4) will
determine whether the New York
company televises the remaining
games of the season.

If an average of 4,000 people
does not attend these two show-
ings, the broadcast company leg-
ally can withdraw from its con-
tract with UK after the Jan. 4
Tickets to these games will
be sold at the Coliseum on a
first-come, first- served basis. Ad-
mission is $2 for students and
$4 for non- students.
The broadcast company feels
it needs an average attendance
of 4,000 at the two games in order
to cover the costs of televising
both the away games shown on
a fee basis and the home games
shown free to students in the Stu-
dent Center Crand Ballroom.
The UK-Michigan game, the
first home game to be broadcast
via closed circuit TV, was pre-
sented live and in color Dec. 5
to about 500 students and faculty
members free of charge.
Forgy, who did not attend the
telecast, said he had received
favorable reports from several per-
sons who did.
"People who went said it was
Just like being at the game,"
Forgy said. "I was told that the
audience stood for the national
anthem, cheered Rupp and booed

hopes the telecasts continue
throughout the season.

Major Changes Recommended for Investments
By LINC LEWIS
Kernel Staff Writer
President Otis A. Singletary
cautioned the Board of Truste-
es Tuesday that an increasingly
large number of universities, in-
cluding UK, are or will be con-
fronted by the severest financial
crisis in their entire existence.
President Singletary pointed
to inflation, the increased cost
of running a university, and the
growing number of students seek-
ing higher education. "Where
will we get the money? The pro-
blem is not going to go away.
UK will no more be able to stand
aside," he said.
The president’s remarks were
delivered early in the meeting
before Robert Hillenmyer, chair-
man of the board’s Finance Com-
mittee, recommended four major
changes in UK’s investment
The changes, in reality a for-
mal adoption of policies institut-
ed some months ago, involve cur-
rent funds, endowment funds, es-
tablishment of an investment
committee, and requiring banks
in which University funds are de-
posited to "collateralize" (that
is, to guarantee) the total amount
of balance in excess of $20,000
by depositing an equal market
value amount of stocks, bonds
or notes in a corresponding bank.
The new policy pertaining to
current funds, those used to meet
operating costs, restricts invest-
ment to relatively low-yield, low-
risk securities. This will limit
investments to federal govern-
ment obligations such as U.S.
Treasury bonds, bills or notes
and securities issued by other
federal agencies. Commercial
paper, bank notes and corporate
bonds, like those UK invested
with the troubled Penn Central
Railroad, will be excluded.
The investments will be in a
regulated mixture of common
stock and fixed income securities.
According to Vice President for
Business Affairs Lawrence E.
Forgy Jr., this type of mixed
portfolio will "enable the Uni-
versity to take part in the growth
of the national economy and
guard against inflation."
The endowment funds in the
form of principal are not actual-
ly spent. It is the interest drawn
on the principal that is used by
Forgy’ told the Kernel that the
more conservative policy of in-
vestment will probably mean a
bss of one-half of one percent
of interest drawn. This would
mean less than a $50,000 loss

White said when students be-
gin to question and try to change

however, that the loss iscompen-

to the board separate resolutions
passed by the University Senate
and the Executive Board of the
UK chapter of the American As-
sociation of University Professors
(AAUP) regarding the recent re-
lease of a class role to the FBI.
Both groups urged the presi-
dent and the trustees “to seek
modifications of the existing
statutes so that they may cease
to constitute a threat to aca-
demic freedom." President Sin-
gletary told the board, "I think
you should be aware of the con-
cern for this matter on campus."

Urgent Need for Adoption
Of Senate Tripartite Report
The University Senate will soon decide the fate of a crucial proposal.
The proposal deals with the report of the Senate Ad Hoc Tripartite Com-
mittee which advocated a reform of the composition of the number of
students in the 200 member Senate from five to 40. A great deal is at
stake in the Senate vote. The report represents the very least the Senate
can do for students. Its rejection would be a denial of student sovereignty.
I. The proponents of the report aim at making the Senate representative
of the entire academic community. By doing so, many of the crucial
problems facing UK could be dealt with.
A. Increased student participation would solidify a basic sense of obli-
gation toward the University’s system of governance.
1. A legitimate participation ( 20 percent of the Senate votes ) would
alleviate many students’ feelings of alienation.
2. Elimination of students’ non-participation frustrations could cause
student senators to rise to the challenge. This tendency is well
illustrated by the exemplary actions of the five current student
B. Participation offers students access to understanding all the impor-
tant difficulties of formulating and applying policies.
1. Student irresponsibility which is caused by ignorance of policy
making would be eliminated.
2. Students would better tolerate unavoidable system inadequacies
if they had access to the reasons for these inadequacies.
C. UK students have proven themselves worthy of the opportunity the
Tripartite Report offers.
D. Adoption of the Tripartite Report would give the Senate a clearer
view of the University and would open communication channels.
1. Student academic grievances could be discussed from the stu-
dents’ viewpoint, with quality, first-person information available to
2. There would be a forum for the high-level discussion of student
problems. The absence of such a forum contributes toward convert-
ing the frustration into aggressive tendencies.
3. The faculty could talk to students, not about them.
II. Those who oppose the Tripartite Report argue that due to their irre-
sponsibility and their transient nature, students’ input must be maintained
at an advisory level only.
A. The only dissenting member of the nine-man committee, Dr.
Stephen Diachun, offered no valid reasons for his dissent. Diachun
merely states dogmatically that the powers which govern the Univer-
sity “should reside and do reside in the faculty, not in the students,”
not because it offers any great advantages, but because it is “almost
universally accepted— by the general public, by the Board of Trus-
tees . . .**
B. Charges of student irresponsibility do not have a basis of fact.
1. The unpublicized, unrewarded, unheeded work of the University
Student Advisory Committee exemplifies the type of responsibility
which can be expected of students interested in improving the
2. The measure of maturity which the five current student senators
have brought to the Senate has further illustrated the fallacy of
screeching “student irresponsibility” at every instance.
C. Some senators oppose the proposal because they view it as “too
radical.” In an environment where students are regarded as niggers
such an assertion is true. To many people, 20 percent self-determina-
tion is not a radical approach.
D. Some senators oppose the proposal because the student’s life at
UK is a short one, not allowing him sufficient time to master the in-
tricacies of the bureaucracy.
1. In the cases in which this argument is applicable, there is the
argument that the freshness of approach which students could bring
to the Senate would offset their brief tenure in the Senate.
2. In many instances students are available to serve more than one
year in the Senate, thereby increasing their expertise. An excellent
example of this possibility is offered by Howell Hopson, a sopho-
more who is presently a student senator. Although only a sophomore,
Hopson has proven himself invaluable in many instances.
E. While acknowledging the quality and the beneficiality of student
advice, some senators contend student opinions must be limited to the
advisory level. Students should not be allowed to share even the short
end of a five-to-one ratio of faculty-studentry participation. This pre-
sents an interesting dilemma: if students' advice is vital at the com-
mittee level, why should it not be beneficial at the participatory level?
F. Arguments presented at a recent Senate meeting include: “it is
immoral" for 40 students to attempt to represent 17,000, the Senate
feels inhibited in talking about students in their presence and students
are not “wise enough, we must make all the decisions.” If the Senate
is swayed by such arguments, a great deal of student trust is mis-

Students View Tripartite Report
To the Editor:
Profs are profs and students are stu-
dents and never the twain shall meet.
This, interestingly enough, appears to be
the official operating philosophy of our
university. This is unfortunate. It would
seem that the proverbial Tines of com-
munication” praised and revered by all
would be enhanced by bringing students
and faculty together. To date, no or-
ganized, meaningful machinery exists to
serve such a noble purpose.
But now we have an opportunity to
bring meaning to the trite cliche, Tines
of communication”; this opportunity lies
in the tripartite committee report. If on
Monday the Faculty Senate sees fit to
accept the recommendations of the tri-
partite committee, the make-up of that
body would be somewhat changed— for
the better. Rather than having the pres-
ent ratio of 200 faculty members to five
(some would say token) students, the
membership would allow for 160 faculty
members and 40 students. Members of
each group would be elected from their
respective departments or colleges on the
basis of a fair proportionate allotment.
Certain distinct advantages accrue from
such action. First, and perhaps most ob-
vious, a just student proportion of the
Senate would facilitate better representa-
tion of student views. I assume this to
be a benefit by virtue of the fact that
students are the ones at the university
seeking the education. I suggest that
student views can be of invaluable use in
the determination of academic relevance.
Secondly, it allows for meaningful stu-
dent input into university decision mak-
ing. I personally feel that this would go
a long way toward meeting the problem
of alienation all students experience when
confronted by the bureaucracy. It would
help to personalize the monster.
Lastly, upon seeing the wisdom behind
certain faculty policies, students would
pass this infonnation on to the people;
in short; it allows for effective dissemina-
tion of information to the student body.
A problem, a plan to meet the problem,
and three plan advantages ... I think we
all can see clearly the worth of US AC’s
tripartite committee report. If you, by
chance, have some passing interest in
your academic career, lobby among your
profs for passage of this proposal. And
be at the Law Building this Monday,
December 14, at 3:00 for the Faculty
Senate meeting which will decide this is-
sue. Your concern is invited.
CARL W. BROWN
Director of Student Affairs,
A Sc S Sophomore
To the Editor:
At the last Panhellenic Council meet-
ing on December 1, the members voted
to support the “majority report" of the
Tripartite Committee which proposes
that forty students be members of the
University Senate and that they act
in a participatory input capacity.
Since the University Senate functions
in determining and regulating academic
policies, programs, courses, and cur-
ricula, in adopting policies for the Uni-
versity of Kentucky calendar, and in
advising the President on criteria for
tenure; and since all these matters di-
rectly affect students; it is our feeling
that students should participate more
fully in making these decisions. In this
day of critical evaluation of education,
students are vitally concerned with the
quality of learning, the manner in which
education is attained, and the true
meaning of academics. Students are con-
tinually defining education as it is and
how it could be improved to meet pres-
ent day needs. It is our opinion that
students are mature individuals capable
of defining their needs and that they
should be given a participatory vote in
attempts to meet these needs.
Therefore, we strongly urge the Uni-
versity Senate to consider the Tripartite
Committee’s proposal and take a step
forward in implementing the concept of
a true University community.
Carol Hamilton, President
To the Editor:
Contrary to reports in the Kentucky
Wildcat, the Tripartite Committee Re-
port to reconstitute the University Sen-
ate into a body of 160 faculty members
and 40 students has not been voted
down in the University Senate. Indeed,
no official vote has yet been taken by
the Senate on this report. Such action
will be taken on Monday, December 14,
in the Court Room of the Law Building.
Also contrary' to the Kentucky Wild-
cat, this proposal would benefit the stu-
dents— and everyone else in this Univer-
sity. This is because such a reconstituted
Senate would help to recognize both
the propriety of student participation in
broad academic policy-making and the
special experience and expertise of the
faculty. This latter fact appears to be
easily recognized. The former fact, how-
ever, deserves more attention. It is often
forgotten that teaching involves not only
what is done by the faculty member,
but also what is done by the student.
Though the faculty member was in-

Otis Singletary: Man in the Middle?
By S.M WINES
Assistant Managing Editor
The July 17, I960 edition of The Ken-
tucky Kernel carried an interesting letter
from the editor of The Texan, the stu-
dent newspaper at the University of Texas
“You are getting a good man in Sin-
gletary,” the letter said in part. “He is
a unique administrator— at least he has
been here: everyone likes him. Students,
faculty, administrators, regents, even Tex-
“It is significant to point out, how-
ever, that Singletary has not had much
contact with students as UTs vice-
chancellor. In fact, the lack of student
contact is purportedly the reason he left us.
Thus Kentucky gets him because of cir-
cumstances. We were sorry to see him go. ’ ’
A year and four months later, Otis
Arnold Singletary still suffers with the
same lack of student contact that allegedly
caused him to leave the Texas campus
and assume the presidency at UK. It is
a problem that he admits openly, a pro-
blem that he says can be solved— with
time. But so far, time has been the ele-
ment that has been lacking in the presi-
dent’s harried first year on campus.
Singletary is a victim of circumstance.
He came to the University of Kentucky
with hopes of consolidating and chan-
neling its growth and enhancing its image
as a rapidly improving institution of higher
Instead, he had a mass of unsolved
problems dumped in his lap during his
first month, including

As the semester break nears, the
president has proven to be the master
administrator he was heralded as at Texas.
His “survival budget” squeezed
through the legislature. The UK-U of L
merger was called off as a bad match,
but efforts are being made to insure future
cooperation between the two universities.
The “acting administration” is no more.
But in the meantime, relations between
the administration and the rest of the
campus have faltered.
The campus press has consistently at-
tacked him as insensitive to student rights
and needs. Faculty members generally
agree that they are still waiting for a
dear mandate from Suigletary as to the
direction in which the University is
And Singletary, so much the master
administrator, has lost points with stu-
dents by failing to take advantage of—
or even to take a stand on— some campus
issues of general concern.
As a result, he has often met with
opposition from all sides. Radical students
find his strict adherence to state laws
and University rules an example of a
“lack of ideology.” On the other hand,
he is often attacked from outside the Uni-
versity for his refusal to “crack down”
on students— most recently for his lack of
decisive action in the teapot tempest over
the UK student directory.
Administration officials cite Single-
tary’s defense of the campus open- speaker
policy as one of the best examples of
his belief in the right of the liberal ap-
proach. Singletary himself calls it “about
as open a speaker policy as any uni-
versity in the United States has.”
Some radicals disagree with that
evaluation of the speaker policy. And,
although officials say privately that Single-
tary was also a key force in preventing
the current student code from taking a
much harder line on student protests
in the wake of the May disorders, stu-
dents still criticize him for not openly
advocating a more liberal attitude.
Issues Draw Potshots
And oddly enough, the same two issues
draw equally angry potshots from con-
servative students and Kentucky residents,
who advocate tighter student controls.
Singletary claims much of the criticism
is a result of the temper of the times.
“I think that you've had a kind of
breakdown of whatever sense of com-
munity ever existed on campus,’ he said.
“You’ve also had a worsening of the re-
lationship of the campus and the larger
community outside, and the president is
always the man in the middle. ”
The man in the middle. The phrase
sums up one of Singletary’s pet peeves
about his job, and those who disagree
with him say he plays the part of be-
leaguered, harassed man-at-the-top too
“He makes some plays for— well, ‘sym-
pathy’ isn’t exactly the word I’m search-
ing for, but it will do,” said Steve Bright,
Student Government president. “He can
be a very strong man in a one-to-one
relationship . . . but he’s playing games
with me when he tells ine he doesn’t
have the ‘authority’ to do this or do
that. He doesn’t perform every job on
this campus, but if anyone has the ‘au-
thority’ to get something done, he does.”
The president’s wife, Mrs. Cloria
Singletary, looks at it another way.
“Sometimes it’s hard to talk yourself
into believing you’re accomplishing any-
thing when you get criticisms from both
sides, all the time,” she said. “And no
one will ever know how many other pro-
blems have come up that Otis was just
unable to talk about.”
Lees Than Satisfied
Nevertheless, it is a generally accepted
fact that the president was less than satis-
fied with the situation that confronted
him when he assumed his post at UK 16
months ago. Although he held the top
post at the University of North Carolina
at Creensboro from 1961 to 1966 and was
later an executive administrator at Texas,
he maintains that there has been a dras-
tic change in colleges between those yean
One official agrees with him. "The
climate at the University had changed so
dramatically between Oswald’s resigna-
tion and Singletary’s appointment,
through nobody’s fault,” he said.
Nationally, all of a sudden, every
university in the country began feeling
the crisis in confidence from the voters,
the intensification of the Vietnam war,
the backing away of federal support for
many, many programs.
“This was the sort of thing Single-
tary walked into. He was invited to
preside over a university that was going
to have to do some belt-tightening.
“All he could say to his faculty was,
‘things are going to get worse before
they get any better.’ Well, who wants
to hear that? Nobody.”
Singletary concedes that the muddled
situation at UK caught him somewhat
by surprise, and says he has spent a
difficult year clearing away unfinished
business and reorganizing his administra-
tion. Both he and his wife speak fondly
of happier days at Texas and North Car-,
olina, but without any hint of dissatis-
faction with life at Kentucky.
Was More Pleasant
“The first time, in North Carolina,
was a different and more pleasant time
than now,” said the president. “I guess
the nature of the college and the uni-
versity presidency has changed so much
in the past few years that most people
who are in these jobs frequently wonder
whether the things that once made it at-
tractive are any longer necessarily true or
relevant. And I don’t think that’s uni-
que with me.”
The pressures of the presidency form
a thread that runs through many of the
conversations Singletary has with persons
outside the administration. Some have
speculated that he may leave the post if
the demands fail to taper off within the
next few years. Others doubt it.
"Nonsense,” laughed a student. “He’s
been talking that way since day one.”
One official expressed concern at the
possibility. “If we had yet another new
president at this time, it would make us
the laughingstock of the country,” he
said. “A big fat-cat school can shrug that
off , . . but Kentucky can’t afford that kind
Singletary, in turn, denies that he
plays the fiddle too much, or that he's
“paranoid” about UK— another tag used
by some in describing him.
“Over the years, every institution I've
known has existed with some tension with-
in its community, but it’s normally man-
“Oue of the things that has troubled
me is what has liappened to the relation-
ship of the president and his students
when the universities get as big as they
are,” he said. “It’s almost impossible-
here we are with 17,800 students— to know
all these students. There’s not any way.”
Nevertheless, Singletary seems to be
trying to find a way. In an effort to open
lines of communication, he has taken a
personal approach to campus life that is
reminiscent of days of smaller enrollment.
This year, administration “open
houses” have been held in the Patterson
Office Tower for a variety of campus
groups. Along with his wife, Singletary'
hoids Wednesday afternoon “teas” at
Maxwell Place for other students and fac-
ulty. At both events, students have the
opportunity to talk to the president or
other members of his administration.
In addition, the president’s evening
and lunch hours are often occupied with
addresses to campus and Lexington-area
organizations. At a recent interview, Sin-
gletary had 16 speeches scheduled within
the coming months. Associates say it is
not unusual for him to speak at public
functions six times a week.
“An evening at home alone is a very
rare experience for him,” a friend said.
“That’s one of the sad things about it. I
heard him say a couple of weeks ago that
it had been two weeks since he’d sat
down to dinner with his family.”
Singletary’s time-consuming efforts at
“availability” appear to have paid off.
SC president Bright, who complained last
year that he was unable to get even an
appointment with Singletary, says he is
“amazed” at the change during the year.
“I’ve really been impressed with the
way he’s gone out of his way to see
students,” Bright said. “From a student
standpoint it was a bad first year, with
the president’s complete unavailability.
But this year we’ve had several long
Others agree with Bright, but they say
that the communication issue is not yet
Campus Is Waiting
“I think the whole campus is waiting
to hear what he wants to do academical-
ly,” said one administrator. “He needs
to give us leadership in what we can do
well, academically, within the present
restricted area in which we have to man-
But at the same time, said the of-
ficial, Singletary needs enough on-cam-
pus support to carry UK along any course
he might chart.
“He has to have the respect of the
alumni, the citizens at large, the opin-
ion-makers, the faculty, and the students.
He’s got to please four constituencies
at once who are inevitably at cross-
purposes with one another,” he said.
“That’s a very fickle public out there,”
said one administrator, “and all it takes
is one series of events which can be mis-
understood or interpreted wrong.
“I don’t think the public really under-
stands such things as the open speaker
policy. That’s where the president loses
a lot of the chips he has invested out-
side, when he stands firmly on behalf
of the open forum on this campus, be-
cause there are people who simply cannot
understand this. ”
So, in a sense, Singletary is back on
the tightrope that he has walked all year.
One administrator and former advisor sum-
med it up admirably:
“No university president— and I think
Singletary is no exception— expects to be
loved. He might like to be, but if he ex-
pects to be, he’s just dreanung.
“The guy had some frightful problems
to face as he came. What I like to see
is, well, the sheer guts that he’s had to
tackle it at all. "

Lack of Height
By SAM CHANDLER
Kernel Staff Writer
With an opening game loss
now behind them, freshman
coach Joe Hall is searching for
the ingredients to mold his charg-
es into a poised, well-operating
UK team. If this year s Kittens
are to do this, they must hurdle
a formidable obstacle- lack of
height. This was quite evident
in their 90-81 loss to Miami of
Ohio last Saturday.
"With our small size, we're
going to need a 110-percent ef-
fort from everyone," Hail said
before Wednesday’s practice ses-
sion. He also stressed that the
squad must utilize its assets to
the fullest to overcome such
"This is not necessarily so,
explained Hall. "We'd like to
have a balanced attack and will
try to bring our other phases of
the game up.
Front Line Improving
Hall is confident that the in-
side play will improve as the
season moves along.
"Rick Drewitz came back in
the second half and got 16
points, which was a real good
effort," commented Hall. “I
think the forwards are capable
of playing much better. It’s just
a question of getting them in
gear with the competition and
I believe we will make this change
in the next few games. ”

We re going to have to be
a good shooting ballclub," Hall
said. "We’re also going to have
to be a team that uses its quick-
ness and speed. "
Another important factor is
the aggressive play that the
yearlings exhibited during the
first game. "One of our aims in
future practices is to bring our
aggressiveness up," Hall said.
Slump is Costly
Hall attributed the opening
loss to Miami to the inability
of the Young Cats to recover
from a slump in which the win-
ners rallied from an early 27-21
deficit to a 48-30 halftime lead.
"Their rally destroyed our
poise," said Hall. "We lost our
composure and it took us too
long to settle down to concentr-
ated effort in cutting their lead."
Most of the Kittens’ offensive
thrust was generated by the two
scholarship guards, RonnieLyons
and Ray Edelman, who combined
for 48 of UK’s points. The duo
also figured in 41 of the team’s
76 field goal attempts, which may
leave one to believe that UK is
a guard-oriented team.

The student-organized co-op,

16, has its drawbacks, according
to Wallace C. Wilkinson and
Joe Kennedy, ownersofWallace’s
and Kennedy’s Book Stores.
“It certainly could hurt our
business if it’s successful,” Ken-
nedy commented. But Kennedy
shares with Wilkinson the be-
lief that such an exchange could
not function without proper
supervision and management.
Wilkinson, who said he's
“never seen one (book exchange)
that works,” pointed out a major
flaw in such an operation. “If
there is no immediate buyer for
a book, the seller is nmning
the risk of losing the book, the
money, or not being able to sell
Kennedy, too, noted the need
for immediacy in such an opera-
tion. “People want money to-
day,” he commented. Students
using the exchange would not
receive money for the sold book
until the week of Jan. 16.
Those books not sold will be
returned to the owner. Kennedy
said these books, if brought to
his store, would be less valuable
because the book store will have
lost its opportunity to sell the
books for use in the spring se-
Wilkinson noted that if a book
will be used only in the spring
semester and a student cannot
sell it at the Book Exchange, it
becomes, in a sense, a discon-
tinued book. His store, therefore,
will buy it at a lower price be-
cause they probably won’t be able
to sell it, he said.
“Its (the Book Exchange's)
main deterrent is the fact that a
large percentage of the books
won’t be used again,” Kennedy

12 -THE KENTUCKY KERNEL, Thursday, Dec. 10, 1970
The University of Kentucky keeps hundreds of livestock for exhibition
and experimental purposes at several farms.
Besides regular hands , some students (not always agriculture majors)
volunteer to live on the farms and work.
Given living quarters and small wages , they handle responsibility
with dedication. Animals at the Experimental Station, Maine Chance,
and Cold Stream are among those tended by students.

them feel their faces.
7 out of 10 said our Tripleheader
shaved them as close or closer than
either the platinum or chromium blade.
Some of the men were surprised.
But, frankly, we weren’t.
Because the Norelco Tripleheader is a
totally different kind of electric shaver.
It has three shaving heads that float,
to follow the curves of your face.
Our blades are rotary. So they shave
in every direction. (Because your beard
grows in every direction.)
And we make our shaving heads
ultra-thin. So it’s possible to get a
really close shave. And practically im-
possible to nick or cut yourself.
