of three trustee members

Kernel Staff Writer
THREE MEMBERS of the Board of
Trustees are serving on expired terms
until Gov. Wendell H. Ford replaces them.
And he is not expected to replace them

Because the legislature is in session, the
governor's energies are devoted to in-
suring that his programs are approved.
The stall is being interpreted in two ways.

Some observers think Ford has not
named the new trustees because he doesn't
want to make any legislator angry. They
think Ford could lose votes in the General
Assembly if he commits himself to a
political appointment that may not be
popular with some members of the

0N THEother hand, there are those who
say the Governor's schedule is too busy to
worry about filling positions that are
legally and competently filled now.

The law governing the appointment of
trustees states that a trustee whose term
has expired Will continue to serve until the
governor names a replacement and the
successor is sworn in.

The three

trustees are Jesse M.
Paris; Thomas P. Bell.

Lexington; and Richard E. Cooper.
Somerset. Their terms expired Dec. 31,
1973. Each one has served a full four-year

press secretary to the governor, said the
Legislature's only effect on the naming of
the new trustees is that it is time con-
suming. Ford has the recommendations
for the alumni member of the board on his
desk now but no date has been set for the
appointment, Ruehling said.

The candidates for the alumni trustee are
elected by the University alumni. The top
three vote getters are sent to the governor
with a recommendation from the
University President. Dr. ()tis A.

The other members are recommended
by citizens from all over the state. Some
recommendations go directly to Ford and
others are sent through other channels,
like Singletary‘s office.

THE PRESIDENT "rarely" makes
recommendations to the governor. said
Anne Wilson, Singletary's secretary. The
only official recommendations are for the
alumni members. she said.

The sociology department is evaluating

A legislative guard

With the facts of an article in Friday’s Kernel
(Residence halls receive, review student records,
page 1) mentally digested, it becomes increasingly
obvious that widespread student support of HB 408,
which promises strict guarding of records, is needed.

Friday‘s story by staff writer Wally Hixson
illustrated an instance where grades were posted on
one floor of Blanding Tower to put, in the words of
Dean Rosemay Pond, “emphasis on scholastic en-
deavors in residence halls.” We and many students
feel, however, other ways should be devised to em-
phasize scholastic achievement. Posting grades
without consent tends to embarrass rather than
motivate students with low GPAs.

HB 408, introduced by Rep. Terry Mann (D-
Newport) and endorsed by some members of the
House Education Committee, will protect student
records from this haphazard abuse. It is receiving the
attention of the Kentucky Student Association (KSA),
a student lobbying body, and UK’s Student Govern-

The bill has many good points and was drafted by
students and administrators. It would guarantee,
with some exceptions, that student records must be
confidential and cannot be released to “any person,
organization, school or institution, group or agency"
except with the student’s consent or by subpoena.

Exemptions would include:

—Releasing records to the Council on Public Higher
Education when precautions are taken to keep secret
the student’s identity.

~Releasing records of students under 18 years of
age to parents or legal guardians.

—Releasing a student’s medical information when
it will help in treatment.

—Releasing information to the student with the
exclusion of medical and psychological information
and solicited recommendations.

HB 408 has already received promising attention
from members of the Education Committee and Sen.
Mike Moloney (D-Lexington). Moloney said he likes
the structuring of this bill, incontrast to the one he
killed two years ago. Passage of this bill, with
amendments, can be expected. However, to insure
passage, a few well-placed letters with local
representatives and senators would help.

ERA should be rescinded

The controversial Equal Rights
Amendment that was ratified by
narrow margin in Kentucky‘s
special session, June 1972, should
be rescinded. Debate and
reasoning ended in 1972 when, at
the very last minute, the
proponents of ERA turned up
with Dee Huddleston banners and
we had yet another display of
people blindly putting partisan
politics ahead of their country.

The immediate and dramatic
effect of ratification of ERA
would be a grab of substantial
power by the Federal Govern-
ment over matters that
heretofore have been generally
acknowledged to be the primary
and, in some cases, the exclusive
legislative responsibility of the
States. These would include
family law. divorce, child
custody, alimony, minimum
marriageable age limits, dower
rights, inheritance, survivor‘s
benefits, insurance rates,
welfare, prison regulations, and
protective labor legislation. All
state and local laws, policies and
regulations involving any dif-
ference of treatment between the

sexes will be overridden by
Federal legislation, which
means, ultimately, ad-

ministrative regulation. Every
aspect of civil and criminal law
which specifies men or women
will be subject to challenge in the

To abolish unreasonable and

to exterminate mice.

We‘ve had recessions, but it
has been nearly 45 years since the
last major deflationary crash, a
time so far removed that two
generations have grown up

economics teaches that govern-
ment intervention can and should
flatten extreme fluctuations of
the business cycle.

The 7th persons who came here
for this conference don't believe
that They've backed up their

faith by plunging heavily into

a premium in buying precious
metals in coin form, either
because the piece has
numismatic value or because the
dealer or the mint must make a

profit on the transaction.

Some people pay cash for their
coins; others buy on margin.

so rapid you can borrow money,

So convinced are they that paper
money will soon be valueiess that
they store their coins in safe
deposit boxes, or if they fear the
government will close the banks
when the crunch comes, they
literally bury it.

But you don‘t have to believe in
imminent anarchy or a crashing
deflation to see that if this year‘s
inflation is as had as last year‘s,
the degree of fiscal chaos and
personal injury could approach

dangerous levels. Neither
Congress nor the White House,
however, can be expected to do
any more than they've done,
which is to make matters worse.

IF THEY WILL not spend less,
and spend that more wisely, gold
offers some small hope. Its
legalization might afford a
monetary shelter for a fortunate
few, but mostof us have no assets
to convert into gold. Never-

Ban cars, create efficient mass transit


As the weeks and months roll
by the energy shortage becomes
more and more a giant problem
that needs a variety of solutions,
sometimes drastic ones. I have a
suggestion that may help many of
the cities across the nation cope
with the energy crisis, increase
revenue, and help transport the
people across the city to and from

How? By banning cars from the
city streets and creating a more
efficient and low cost mass
transit system. I realize that this
sounds like a drastic move, it is,
but so is the energy crisis. I am
not suggesting this for all cities,
cities under 10,000 people would
find it more of a burden than a

USING Lexington as an
example I will demonstrate the
procedure to be followed. The
first bus leaves the station at 5 :30
am. each one following its
standard route. Fifteen minutes
later the second set of buses
leave. This goes on until the first
bus returns creating a continuous
flow of buses every fifteen
minutes. Smce all vehicles except
taxis. police cars and other
emergency vehicles have been

giving people a chance to get

home from work and drive back
to town for an evening out. People
who have to work at night and
must be at work before the lifting
of the ban could get a special
police permit.

“What if you don‘t live on a
main bus route"? If this question
hasn’t entered your mind it
should have, it is a very im-
portantquestion. Through the use
of buses half the size of the ones
on the main routes the people who
do not live near them can be
transported back and forth with a
small amount of effort. One
example of a connecting route
would be a bus leaving Main and
Limestone turning into Pat-

terson, West High, West Maxwell
and East Maxwell. It would then
go to Transylvania Park turning
into Euclid, Woodland, and East
High Street to the Viaduct and
back into Main Street. This may
sound complicated but really is
not, this route connects people to



the buses running along Rose
Street, Limestone, Broadway,
and of course downtown.

The advantages to car banning
are many; less wear and tear on
your car, (with the trade in value
of most ca rs going down you want
to keep it in top shape and run-




ning smooth), faster tran-
sportation due to lack of traffic
jams. You do not have to warm
your car in winter or air condition
it in summer, that saves fuel
which saves money. It also gives
you extra time to read the
newspaper or a good book. These
are just a few reasons why mass
transit is the better way. Think
about it.

Your Health

Hearing these troubled voices from home


A student recently posed this perplexing
situation: “I‘ve always been pretty close
to my mother and she has always said that
she wants me to have my own life. Now
that I have come to school, my mother has
called me many times about family crises,
particularly about my younger brother
and sister. She says she is turning to me
because she can’t understand the younger
generation. I found myself being pushed
into going home almost every weekend to
mediate disputes. My family is very im-
portant to me and even though I have tried
my best, there doesn’t seem to be anything
I can do to make everyone happy."

This situation isn’t as unusual as you
might think. When any family member
leaves home, for whatever reason, the
remaining members are forced to readjust
their patterns of relating. In this situation
where it is the older sibling who has left the
home, parents may become suddenly
aware of growing older, younger brothers
and sisters may vie for more attention and
freedom, and the person who leaves home
has to seriously confront the task of
developing his own life, separately and
independently of the home. Dealing with
these realities can be stressful for all
concerned and can elicit strong feelings of
sadness and anxiety; sometimes guilt and

CLARIFICATION of your relationship to
your family is needed. The boundaries
between yourself and them need
clarification. This may require your
taking a firm stand. You may want to tell

your mother that you care about your
family and that ca ring includes a feeling of

confidence that they can resolve their own .

disputes by themselves. If they truly need
outside help, suggest thaththey consult a
local professional such as a minister,
family physician, counselor or

A part of establishing your autonomy
and separateness from the home situation
will mean your giving up the gratification
you get from being “close to mother”, the
“family mediator", and the “expert" on
the affairs of youth. Giving up such
gratification will undoubtedly lead to
feelings of sadness and loss, but will at the
same time free you to move on to new
sources of gratification, such as academic
achievement, new peer relationships and
more time and energy to devote to your
college activities.

Another student presents an even more
common problem: “I have a bad temper.
All of a sudden, for no reason, I find myself
angry and yelling, particularly at my
girlfriend. She says I am throwing temper
tantrums and behaving like a child. She
threatens to break up our relationship if I
don’t learn to control myself soon. How do
I gain such control and how can I stop
acting this way?"

LEARNING T0 express one’s anger,
agressivenm and assertiveness in a
socially acceptable way requires lots of
years of practice. It is a social skill that
can be learned and can be improved with
practice. A big obstacle to controlling
yourself is your belief that you lose your

temper or get angry for “no reason".
Because you deny or are not aware of the
circumstances that trigger your angry
feelings, it seems as though these intense
emotional tones well up suddenly from
out of nowhere. It is likely that since your
girlfriend sees you as throwing temper
tantrums. you may be using an old
childhood strategy in an attempt to solve
difficulties in your relationship with her.
On the surface it appears that not only is
this method inappropriate, but it may

ultimately self-defeating.
The aggressive explosions may

represent a need to preserve your integrity
and autonomy in a situation where youfeel


threatened or perhaps overwhelmed. Take
a careful look at your feelings toward your
girlfriend and decide what is getting you
riled up. What about your relationship
frightens you or frustrates you? Is it a

-sexual issue, a fear of becoming too

dependent and thereby losing some of your
autonomy, or concerns about being
dominated? Knowing some of the reasons
for getting angry will probably open the
way for you to assert yourself in a more
appropriate, socially acceptable manner.

Thanks to research efforts at the University of
