Grad Students Adopt Constitution

By RICHARD FALKNOR
Kernel Staff Writer
The newly formed Graduate
Student Association (GSA) furthered its attempts Monday night
to become an officially recognized
University organization by adopting a provisional constitution and
electing a faculty representative
and an administration advisor.
The GSA also began establishing committees to investigate
such issues as parking, the possibility of waiving graduate student tuition, creation of grievance channels for graduate assistants, and the establishment
of graduate discounts at the bookstores.

Perceptive Norman Mailer Views National Conventions
Miami and The Siege of Chicago,

Last August Norman Mailer

quadrennial coagulations of political

Mailer the novelist and Mailer
the journalist had once seemingly
undergone the mitotic process,
the splitting of two cells that
most writers have to do at one
time or another.
But recently some vague form
of fusion had occurred; the two
entities had joined to produce
a new literary form-t- he

fact and fiction, with the fact
never infringing on the fiction.

account of last fall's march on

Muddle Of Honor
"We sometimes have a tendency to emphasize what is wrong
with America's younger generation," President Nixon said Friday
during a ceremony in which he
awarded three young soldiers the
nation's highest award for courage, the Medal of Honor. The
recipients, he said, represented
what is right with American youth.
In the case of at least one of the
young men we must strongly disagree.

Two of the soldiers were honored for bravery demonstrated in
actions taken to save the lives of
their comrades. If young men must
submit to the military, these two
at least exhibited their gallantry in
the most appropriate manner.
One, a medic, treated 30 injured
soldiers during an attack, crawling
more than the length of a football
field on two different occasions
to drag wounded soldiers to safety,
though he suffered rocket wounds
that immobilized both his legs and
destroyed his left shoulder.
The second risked his life to
lead his nine-ma- n
Green Beret
team to a rescue helicopter and
then crawled through flames to
rescue the pilot after the helicopter was shot down.
It is the circumstances surrounding the heroism of the third soldier
that is dismaying. To refer only to
the Associated Press account which
appeared under the subhead, "One-Ma- n
Array of Destruction":
"Hooper, a squad leader, won
his award for becoming a one-ma- n
army of devastation during an attack on an enemy position near
Hue on Feb. 21, 1968. Hooper,
although wounded several times,

destroyed three bunkers with grenades, three buildings housing enemy riflemen, and wiped out enemy
defenses single handed."
If this is the nation's idea of
honor, and for many it is, it is a
good example of that evil element
of the military its facility for brainwashing individuals into the belief
that there is glory in killing. Hooper did what he was trained to do,
and no doubt, in the eyes of his
superior officers, did it very well.
But will he agree for the rest of
his life?

enemy soldiers young men pressed
into service just as Hooper was,
perhaps, never return to his sleeping mind, to torment him and remind him of his basest, most fearful
animal characteristics. Could anyone commit such acts and never
resent the military indoctrination
which induced him to do so?
For those of America's youth
with the foresight to recognize these
possibilities, the problem acquires
a growing and more terrifying urgency. Can you kill? Of course, and
easily, if you go through the military indoctrination. But can you
live with it for the rest of your
life? And most of all, should you
have to?
The questions arising from Friday's Medal of Honor ceremony
take on even greater ominous portent when we realize that the man
espousing these simplistic, inhumane saber-rattlin-g
praises is
the same man who is leading our
nation. Perhaps this is a drastic
reflection of what is really wrong
in America.

The College of Arts and Sciences
Committee on Learning's forum
Thursday afternoon had both its
good and bad spots. The forum
was intended to give students an
opportunity to voice some of their
complaints about the climate of
learning at the University of Kentucky.
And the complaints were many.
Some of them were substantial,
such as the ones indicting the lack
of study facilities here, the inadequacy of the library and the need
for the various department heads
to listen to suggestions from students. Some of the statements aired
had little to do with the basic
problems here but instead focused
on individual gripes. These are important but should have been dealt
with elsewhere. Fortunately, most
of the students who showed up to
speak to the issue did have complaints that needed attention.
Some of these dealt with the
environment here
and the overemphasis of athletics.

Q: First of all gentlemen, let me thank
you for what I hope will be a very
candid expression of views.

A: T.R.F.
It is with ominous presage
I appear hence; I do so to negate malicious canards that my existence is substantiated entirely by surrogates and to
violate the proprieties of surreptitious

rendezvous which are the appurtenances
of my oppugnate confreres.
Q: What is your opinion of the infamous Housing Policy Statement Number Nine?
A: T.P.J. -- It stinks.
A: B.C.
It is the perfect opportunity
for students to take a meaningful stand
against an injustice.
A: T.R.F.
I have previously presented

my
program designed to
this problem.
Q: What do you think of the proposed
Bill of Student Rights?
A: T.P.J. -- It stinks.
A: B.C. It could be a step in the
right direction.
A: T.R.F.
I am in the process of prea
