Energy crisis implications

Kernel Staff Writer

Confusion about the energy crisis and its
long-term implications were discussed
here Friday at an energy symposium.

The energy crisis has caused confusion
for the consumer, the oil industry and the
government, according to W.C. Voss, an
Ashland Oil vice president.

The confusion, which is compounded by
day-to-day changes in government
regulations. does not allow the country ”to
focus on long-term problems," Voss said.

MANY OF the oil companies “don’t
know what to do" about the energy
situation, he added. Just as the crisis did
not occur overnight, Voss said, it will not
be eliminated “by the wave of any magic

closings are helping to reduce the demand
for fuel, Voss said, but the free world will

have to be discrete in its fuel use. “We
must think of petroleum in a worldwide
sense,“ he said.

Voss spoke of the foreign relations

States. because this country consumes 30
per cent of the world‘s energy, but

reserves. he said.

should not be “haphazard and across the

Dr. Kenneth Saulter of the Energy
Policy Project in Washington, called the
energy situation a “crisis of confusion.”
He said the Congress should try to clear up
the confusion through legislation.

He predicted some legislative action
before the elections in November. The

government will “create legislation to
reduce consumption,“ he said. He also
cited the necessity of a change in govern-
mental attitude toward areas such as
environmental standards.

Program at West Virginia University, said
the energy crisis is “almost no problem"
as a short~term aspect of the economy.

The Arab oil embargo may imply a
severe gasoline shortage this summer,
Newcomb said. The country needs to build
up its inventories.

Newcomb said there would be “little
problem" if the United States wanted to
become self-sufficient in fuel, but the
country would have to pay a higher price
for energy. As the prices of alternate
forms of energy rise, “people will have a
tendency to change their habits,“
Newcomb predicted.

Cook abandoned ship

After considerable debate, Sen. Marlow Cook has
announced he will seek reelection to the Senate this


Until official announcement was made Saturday,
political experts didn‘t know if Cook would run or
leave politics for private business. Apparently, any
business offer wasn’t good enough.

Now that Cook has decided to run, what will he offer


For one’ thing. he will give the state a grandstand
player. He has left the Senate floor, according to a
Washington political analyst, during several con-
troversial votes (ABM. Carswell, Lockheed), only to
return in time to cast votes which settled the issue.

Kentucky would also get a man who senses any
change in the political climate.

Sure of President Nixon‘s power at the time of the
Senate vote on Clement Haynsworth‘s Supreme Court
nomination, he voted for Haynsworth.

When Haynsworth was defeated, Cook, em-
barrassed, voted against the next Nixon nominee,

Harold Carswell.

Cook now faces a perilous election year when
association with the scandalous Nixon administration
could cost him dearly, and he has much to fear.

He was one of several Nixon surrogates in 1972,
when Nixon was at the height of his popular power.
Now that Nixon has seen his following fall to 26 per
cent in the latest polls, Cook is one of the first to

abandon ship.

It now seems Cook will campaign on a “clean up
politics" ticket, and won’t hesitate to point an ac-
cusing finger at the White House if it will get a few


It is, of course, too early to cast an endorsement,
since a Democrat has not yet surfaced. But it will be a
poor Democrat indeed who would seem second best to

(Editor‘s note: This is the first of a
two part series studying American
presidential politics between 1963
and 1973.)


The distinct odor of burning cities and
napalm characterized a decade of fiery
confrontations between traditional beliefs
and a new consciousness. The past 10
years were not really t he mother of a novel
vision. but rather a time when the con-
viction to express one‘s credence, openly
and defiantly. became the creed of a
growing minority of Americans who would
wait no longer for change. It began with
optimism in 1963 and ended in the Year of

(‘yiiicism 1973.

American(‘amelot - Where were you in
1963‘? Those last days of the Kennedy
administration were a happy time of in-
tellectual enterprise and social elegance,
fashioned by Kennedy andhis aides. It was
the beginning of a rise to presidential
power and prestige. 1963 found a seed of
growing optimism in domestic affairs. The
developing embryo of civil rights
organizations produced 200,000 marchers
to clamor for equality in the streets of
Washington. [11‘ The year embodied a
spirit of freshness which typified the
sentiments of many who applauded the
passing from the stagnation of the
l‘lisenhower quasi military White House
staff system and constant reliance on
(‘ongressioiial imagination for legislation.

A Man for All Seasons — The Spring and
Fall of LBJ . The early days of the Johnson
administration were an attempt at con—
tinuance and stabilization of government.
Johnson skillfully handled Congressional
relations by use of his previous ex-
perience. much as Harry Truman had
done after Roosevelt‘s death in 1945.
The shock of John Kennedy's death
paused the nation for a review (however
brieft of priorities and policies. Many
discovered domestic areas had been
grossly neglected. It made Johnson‘s job
of selling the (ireat Society much easier.

'I‘IIE ELECTION of 1964 provided voters
in the United States with the best chance
for a choice between opposing ideologies in
many years. Sixty one per cent chose the
Johnson style and it seemed the 60's would
be “the Decade of Domestic Priority and
Prosperity ".

However, dawning on the horizon was
the trauma of Vietnam. By the end of 1965
the United States had 200,000 troops
fighting in the marshes of Vietnam. Un-

--‘.'§.t .

fortunately Lyndon Johnson equated his
1964 landlside with a blank check for an
important test of the containment policy

against (‘ommunist aggression in
Southeast Asia. Thus. the War on Poverty
was derailed into a devastating War of the
(‘ities and the increasingly bloody War of
the Rice Paddies.

Likewise. Lyndon Johnson was crippled.
His primary goal of developing domestic
programs had melted in the face of
growing cynicism and disillusionment
toward Johnson's Southeast Asian policy.
Johnson. staunch advocate of civil rights
causes. saw his dreams go up in the smoke
and ashes of Newark. Detroit and even
Washington, itself.

In four short years he had been broken
and left so politically impotent and
humiliated his own party‘s convention
suddenly adjourned into the streets of
(‘hicago. assuring that nothing less than a
miracle could prevent Richard Nixon from
being elected. Johnson declined to run for
another term with the echoes of “Hey, hey
LBJ. how many kids did you kill today"

Age of contraception, abortion,

The public is bombarded with in-
formation about sex today. and taboos on
the free and open discussion of sex are
decreasing. This is particularly true of
many younger adults who do not feel
bound by the sexual restrictions of
previous generations.

Not only is this the era of re—evaluation
of sex-related values but it is also the age
of contraception. legalized abortion,
earlier sterilization and great concern
about population control. Sexual in-
tercourse can no longer be looked upon as
primarily a reproductive act, but rather in
terms of its meaning within the
relationship of the two individuals in-

v olved.

THIS FIRST part of a two part series is
devoted to a discussion of this relationship
and the responsibilities of each party.
Rocky Mountain Planned Parenthood has
published two pamphlets written by their
executive director. Mrs. Sherri Tepper,
that have had wide national distribution.
The Health Service thinks they are worth
sharing with UK students. The
copyrighted pamphlets from which the
following excerpts have been taken are
available from Planned Parenthood of
(‘olorado. lnc.. Denver, (‘olo.

The one written for men is entitled
She will always remember you.

While she‘s sitting in the doctor‘s office,
scared, waiting for the results of the test,
she‘ll remember you.

When he tells her that she is pregnant,
asks about her plans for prenatal care and
delivery, she'll remember you then.

WHILE SHE waits out the pregnancy in
some other city... or tries frantically to
find the money for an abortion...or faces
the disbelief and anger of her parents...0r
lives from day to day with the sick
heaviness of an unwanted, unplanned
pregnancy—she'll remember you.

She‘ll remember all the things you said,
all the things you talked about, but that
you didn‘t talk about contraception.

She‘ll remember your long con—
versations about love, honesty, the new
morality. personal freedom. She'll
remember that you. or she, talked about
marriage. but that you're not ready yet.
She may remember that you coaxed, or
argued. or threatened.

ANY HONEST. responsible relationship
that includes sex also includes con-
traception. and this means that both of you
go to a physician or clinic for medically
supervised assistance. If she's too eni-
barrassed, too shy. too insecure to get
contraceptive help. you have only one
honest choice. You wait or you get another
girl. If you‘re the one who's too em-
barrassed (you don‘t really know her well
enough to discuss it?) why don‘t you just
wait until you grow up.

But don't talk to her about love, honesty.
or personal freedom . Without a decision on
contraception. that kind of talk is a
coward‘s lie.

When she‘s signing the relinquishment
papers for her baby (your baby). or while
she‘s waiting for her abortion she‘ll
remember that lie.

IF YOU know that you‘ll always be
remembered, is that what you want to be
remembered for?

The pamphlet written for women is
entitled: STOP KlDl)lNG YOURSELF...

You're a nice girl. All through school,
you know that there were a lot of girls who
had sex. and you knew you weren‘t one of

Some of the girls talked about the pill. or

You’re a nice girl.


There are only two honest kinds of girls;
(lirls w ith the courage of their convictions
to have responsible sex and girls with the
courage of their convictions to remain a
virgin. Being the first kind means that you
use contraception

BEING THE second kind means that
