Teaching Versus Research 

4 Firing ’ Forum Attacks Priorities 

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 
yesterday afternoon. 

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 

Three Fired Profs 

The evening session featured 
a panel discussion with three 
fired professors and Dr. Lewis 
Cochran, vice president for ac- 
ademic affairs, Dr. Stephen 
Manning, chairman of the Eng- 
lish Department, and Dr. Garrett 
Flickinger, former head of the 
University Senate Privilege and 
Tenure Committee. 

Both Manning and Cochran 
explained the four criteria for 
hiring and firing and the process 
followed in hiring and firing a 

Both said the four criteria 
were teaching, research, profes- 
sional status and public service. 

but stressed the flexibility of these 

“It’s unrealistic to say there 
is no element of Judgment” in 
deciding cases of hiring and fir- 
ing, Cochran admitted, “and we 
do make mistakes.” 

Cochran was followed by two 
English professors who have had 
their contracts terminated, Pat 
White and Clayton Reeve. They 
both launched bitter attacks on 
the “publish or perish” policy.

Assistant Managing Editor 

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 
the professors. 

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 
certain issues. 

Student Popularity 

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 
quality of undergraduate educa- 
tion at UK, both by students and 
faculty and maybe, even by ad- 

Two Arrested on Campus by LPD 

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 
deadly weapon. 

The arrests were made during a gathering 
in the garden which previously had been 
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 
Peck Keiuiamer. 

“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. 

News Commentary 

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 
be seen. 

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 
of concern. 

Students simply want the de- 
finition of research made real- 
istic, rather than the evaluation 
process where administrators find 
themselves counting and playirg 
the numbers game once again.

Holiday Mail May Be Affected by Rail Strike 

Workers struck the nation’s 
railroads early Thursday, with 
thousands of commuters expected 
to he among the first affected 
and deeper troubles predicted 
if the walkout is a long one.

The steering committee of the 
Student Mobilization Committee 
(SMC) has announced SMC’s 
sponsorship of a state-wide con- 
ference on "Alternative America’’ 
to be held on the weekend of 
Feb. 27-29. 

The conference will consist of 
workshops on such issues as 
Women’s Liberation, Appala- 
chia, ecology. Cl’s and the draft, 
imperialism and the Third World 
Revolution etc. Registration will 
begin in the Crand Ballroom of 
the Student Center at 3 p.m.

tion. General Motors, the largest 
of the automakers, just weathered 
a long strike by the United Auto 
Workers Union. 

Auto spokesmen's ertimates 
of how long it would take a 
strike to halt the industry varied 
from 48 hours to ‘within a week.’’ 
They explained that most parts 
are shipped by rail to fabricating 
and assembly plants. 

The strike came at the height 
of the Christmas mailing season. 

In the face of the threatened 
strike Wednesday, postal officials 
ordered an embargo on mail rates 
covering many types of publica- 
tions, catalogues and parcel post, 
the latter heavily used during 
the Christmas season. 

"We must not run the risk of 
tying up our post offices at a 
time when the massive Christmas 
mail load is bearing upon the 
system," said Postmaster Gen- 
eral Winton M. Blount in an- 
nouncing the embargo. It affects

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.

"What Price Freedom" 

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 
the referees. " 

The vice president said he 
hopes the telecasts continue 
throughout the season.

THE KENTUCKY KERNEL, Thursday. Dec. 10. 1970-S 

Major Changes Recommended for Investments 

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 
the University. 

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 
of the approximately 1 million

White said when students be-

their education they are met by

one can do anything," he said. 

Reeve claimed that adminis- 
trators believe close contact with 
students is "an inefficient use 
of resources."

questions about specific cases of

ministrators, but they refused to

President Singletary also read 
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 
faculty members. 

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. 


Director of Student Affairs, 
A Sc S Sophomore 
Student Government 

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- 
deed once a student, he is often unable 
to realize by himself the necessary under- 
standing of academic matters from the 
student perspective— necessary because 
no adequate academic policies can be 
formulated without extensive consider- 
ation of the impact of such policies from 
the student perspective. In many cases, 
the faculty member has unavoidably 
simply forgotten what that perspective 
was all about when he was a student. 
But even where this is not the case, 
retention of such a perspective is now 
inadequate because being a student to- 
day is a good bit different from what 
being a student has l een in previous 

The Tripartite Report embodies and 
promotes the pursuit of the sense of com- 
munity which is sadly lacking on this 
campus. By itself, pructice of what this 
report preaches would not ensure such 
community, but it is difficult to con- 
ceive of such community without im- 
plementation of such institutional chan- 
nels for student-faculty cooperation. 

Because this report is so critically im- 
portant to the student’s stake in this 
institution— and thereby to the unity of 
this university— the five current student 
members of the University Senate strong- 
ly urge every concerned student to at- 
tend the Senate meeting at 3 p in. De- 
cember 14 in order to observe first- 
hand the deliberations of the Senate 
and the actions of the Senators on this 
matter. Please make every effort to show 
your reasoned support of this restructur- 
ing so vital to University governance.

Otis Singletary: Man in the Middle? 

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 
at Austin. 

“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- 
an editors. 

“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 
t Preparation of the biennial budget of 
the University for presentation to the 
state legislature, 

► Negotiation of the ill-fated UK-U of 
L merger, which he was promised would 
be solved before he took over as presi- 

► H ©-organization of an administration 
that was almost totally composed of “act- 
ing” officials who were hindered horn 
making any lasting decisions in their 

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 
and today. 

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 
of luxury.” 

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 
completely solved. 

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 

Hampers Kittens 

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 treatment center. 

Methadone, a clear liquid, is 
mixed with orange juice and 
taken once a day. 

“When you’re on heroin, it's 
a high I can’t describe. My broth- 
er and I started taking It— we 
bad been controllers distributors, 
but not pushers, "according to 
Lloyd" then we started to smart, 
snuff it, and we were hooked. 

“When you get on the stuff, 
the pushers won’t trust you 
anymore. You can’t get credit, 
and finally I was broke. I had 
family problems, naturally, and 
I had to do something." 

Lloyd heard about a treat- 
ment program in Lexington, but 
couldn’t get in. He returned to 
Pittsburgh and entered the pro- 
gram at Western Psychiatric. 

After four to six weeks as an 
in-patient, when highs are nor- 
malized, the patient leaves the 
hospital, but returns daily for 
his dose of methadone. 

Lloyd and Leo Collier, an- 
other methadone out-patient who 
is now a physics nuyor at Pitt, 
were on the "streets" together a 
couple years ago. 

Lloyd was taking "five, six, 
seven or eight bags a day.” Now 
betakes methadone, has no highs 
and says things are going better 
at home. 

Lloyd thinks he’s close to the 
time when he can be discharged 
from the methadone program. 

“I think I’m capable now of 
staying off drugs,” he said. "The 
doctor told me we’d have to 
sit down and talk about it." 

Lloyd says the one major thing 
he had to fight, even after he 
began the methadone treatment 
was the image of "once an ad- 
dict, always an addict.” 

“People don’t realizethat her- 
oin is destructive and that me- 
thadone is constructive," he said 
"A person who is houked on 
heroin is a sick individual. He’s 
also un habitual criminal.” 
Bernie says his problem is 
psychological as well as physio- 
logical now. 

“I was off drugs in prison," 
he said. "I kept myself active 
all the time. But right now I'm 
not doing much except waiting 
to go to scliool." 

The four in-patient beds at 
Western Psychiatric Institute pre- 
sently have no patients in them, 
which may make Bernie’ s wait 

Nurses at the hospital have 
refused to treat methadone pa- 
tients. Some are opposed to the 
program and others say in-pa- 
tient load is too great. 

The clinic plans to hire a full 
time nurse soon just for the me- 
thadone program, according to 

present income 
sources such as "double-chang- 

“You probably don’t know 
what that means," he said. 
"That’s short changing. You go 
into a place and break a large 
bill. Through talking and asking 
for other change you manipu- 
late the clerk into giving you 
more than you originally gave 

Bernie served his prison term 
for burglary and he realized a 
$52 a week parole violation now would jeop- 
  industrial ardize his plans for education.

It’s frightening. 

That we can race toward the stars 
And total annihilation at the same time. 

That technology puts them both equally at our disposal. 
Never before has man presumed so much 
Or prevailed so much over his environment. 

And yet all of his marvelous achievements have done little 
To help him understand his relationship to other' men. 
That’s where you come in. 

You have to make it better. 

It is not an easy task. 

But you have no other choice 
If man is to survive. 

You are our life insurance.

Book Co-op Doesn’t Worry Competitors

threat to the business of the 
three existing campus book 

Former Governor 
New Teacher 
In Hopkinsville 

Former Kentucky governor 
Edward T. Breathitt will teach 
a course in political science at 
Hopkinsville Community College 
next semester. 

At least two other former Ken- 
tucky governors, Earle Clements 
and Bert Combs, have served 
as visiting lecturers at Northern 
institutions, but this is the first 
known full-time, college-level 
course taught by a man who has 
practiced politics at the guber- 
natorial level in the state. 

Breathitt, now a Hopkinsville 
attorney who served as governor 
from 1964 to 1968, will teach 
Political Science 280, a course in 
state government, on Tuesday 
and Thursday afternoons begin- 
ning Jan. 14. « 

Breathitt also has served as 
state personnel commissioner, 
where he set in motion Ken- 
tucky’s merit system for state 
employes; three terms as a state 
representative; membership on 
the Governor’s Commission on 
Mental Health, and as a mem-

Army Attempts 
Making Life 
More Pleasant 

William C. Westmoreland has 
ordered “rapid and positive ac- 
tions" to improve Army life, in- 
cluding beer at supper, an end 
to most reveille formations and 
the elimination of evening bed 

The Army Tuesday made pub- 
lic a series of directives issued 
by its chief of staff “to enhance 

service attractiveness and remove 
unnecessary irritants to the 

All the services are falling in 
line with the Defense Depart- 
ment's goal of making life in 
uniform more pleasant by doing 
away with what have been called 
"Mickey Mouse" restrictions. 

The underlying aim is to lure 
more young men to sign up for 
military careers and ultimately 
depend on an all-volunteer force, 
rather than the draft. 

Westmoreland authorized unit 
couuuanders to serve 3.2 percent 
beer “routinely during evening 
meals in mess halls,” and to 
install beer vending machines in 

The general indicated that 
there might be some further re- 
laxations in policies on alcoholic 
beverages, if these actions work 

Westmoreland told his top su- 
bordinates that holding “unnec- 
essary troop formations is detri- 
mental to morale and efficient 
personnel utilization practices.” 

Therefore, Westmoreland rul- 
ed out early morning reveille 
formations, except for ceremonial 
training or other special occasr 

Liberalizing the Army’s pass 
policies, Westmoreland ordered 
elimination of the signing in and 
signing out requirement, bed- 
check except for men being pun- 
ished for some infraction, and 
curbs on the distance that men 
may travel ou pass. 

stores. But, according to mana- 
gers of those stores, it will not. 

“They've tried it before, and 
they'll try it again, ‘ saidWiiliam 
Eblen, manager of the Univer- 
sity Book Store. The prospect of 
a third competitor doesn't have 
him worried. 


The student-organized co-op, 
which will begin operation Dec. 
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 
the book.” 

Delayed Pay 

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

The University of Kentucky keeps hundreds of livestock for exhibition

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,

Refused to Become n Symbol 

Youth Returns Accolade With Oral Slap 

young, $140- a- month church 
worker returned President Nix- 
on's accolade with a spontane- 
ous oral slap Thursday because, 
she said later, “1 refuse to be 
used as a symbol” against dis- 
sident youth. 

When Debra Jean Sweet, 19, 
stepped forward in the White 
House Blue Room to accept a 
medal and a presidential hand- 
shake she admonished Nixon: 
“I cannot believe in your sincer- 
ity until you get us out of Viet- 

Nixon replied "We’re doing 
the best we can,” and turned 

Miss Sweet, honored for her 
leadership of a Wisconsin anti- 
hunger drive, said her remark 
had been made "very neoes- 
sary” by the thrust of Nixon’s 
opening comments at the cere- 

As the President extolled her 

and three other young people 
for bravery or exceptional pub- 
lic service, he had added by 
way of contrast, “We hear too 
much these days about the very 
small minority of young Ameri- 
cans who have lost faith in their 
country.” It was a theme he has 
often repeated. 

” I couldn’t accept that,” Miss 
Sweet said later in an interview. 
"The leaders of the youth of 
America are resisting, and cer- 
tainly aren’t happy. 

Not A Symbol 

“I hadn't planned to make 
any specific comment,” she said 
"I was prepared to accept the 
protocol, but 1 taw him using me 
as a symbol, and 1 refused to 
become that xymboL” 

Debra's mother, Mrs. Chacte* 
W Sweet, allowed that "My 
heart is in my mouth" over the 
incident but added, “To Just 
say empty words ... is some- 
thing Debra just couldn’t do. 

"I’m proud of her. I believe 
in what she feels she has to do.” 
Debra's father, a state agri- 
culture official at Madison, Wis., 
agreed with that sentiment, but 
noted he would have preferred 
she make "a more positive state- 
ment— like please do what you 
can to end the war.” 

100 Percent Believer 
Although Debra disclaimed 
any prior intent for her com- 
ment, her father said “I know 
the situation would arise if the 
opportunity presented itself. De- 
bra is not artificial in any way, 
shape or manner. She believes 
100 percent.” 

Debra'* award was presented 
for .her leadership, at ages 16 
and 17, af a OOwsUe march -of 
eaerVe 3,000 Wisconsin high 
school .students which raised 
$25,000 to bay food and process-

Against the advice but with 
the consent of her parents, she

In an independent test, some indepen- 
dent men shaved one side of their face 
with a platinum or chromium blade. 

They shaved the other side with our 
Tripleheader 35T shaver. 

When they finished shaving, we had 
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. 

The Tripleheader comes in a Cord and 
a Rechargeable 

Either way, you

Tickets Available 
For Florida Tilt 

Student priority for tickets for 
the Kentucky- Florida basketball 
game Jan. 9 in Memorial Coli- 
seum will be on sale from 6-9 
p.m. Monday, Dec. 14, and from 
9 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday and Wed- 
nesday at the Coliseum ticket 

Since the University will not 
be in session officially, the 
Florida game is not on the Stu- 
dent Activities Card. However, 
Steve Bright, Student Govern- 
ment president, has agreed to re- 
lease 2,328 student tickets to the 
Oregon State game Dec. 22 in 
return for students having first 
priority on purchase of 2,328 tic- 
kets for the Florida game. 

A total of 2,360 tickets will 
be available for students wishing 
to attend the Oregon State game. 
These tickets will be picked up 
in the usual manner. 

The Florida game allotment 
will be limited to purchase of 
one ticket per student on the 
student’s ID card and one on 
another ID card; in other words, 
a limit of two per student. 

Unpurchased student tickets 
and remaining tickets to the 
Florida game will be sold to 
faculty and staff who do not hold 
season books, with the limit of 
two per purchaser applying.

Juniors and seniors. 

Ben Fletcher, SC representa- 
tive, has organized and trained 
this year’s group. Volunteers gen- 
erally return to the high schools 
from which they graduated and 
speak to students, encouraging 
them to enroll at UK. ‘Part- 
icularly the academically out- 
standing” are encouraged, said 

During the training sessions 
volunteers received lists of Na- 
tional Merit Scholarship semi- 
finalists, who later receive letters 
from the Student Information 
Team regarding participation in 
their programs— in hopes that 
they will become interested in 

A High School Juniors Pro- 
gram has been set up this year 
as in the past, with the top two 
juniors of each high school in- 
vited to UK for a weekend. Last 

year 75 students throughout the 
state came to UK to participate 
in the program. 

Discussion panels are set up 
for Saturday on various subjects 
ranging from religion to Greek 
life on campus. Members of the 
Student Information Team are 
scheduled to be on the panels, 
while the high school students 

will rotate from group to
