Retirement Law May Be Invalid
By The Associated Press

Fayette Circuit Judge James
Park Jr., in an opinion filed
Tuesday, said a citizens' petition

to have the city adopt an age-6- 8
retirement ordinance for police
and firemen was invalid because
of the lack of qualified signers.
Park added that after he files
a final Judgment expected before the end of this week
city will be impowered to enact
its previously adopted age-5-7 retirement measure.
Until the final judgment is
entered, the city remains under
an injunction which Park ordered May 28.
The enactment of the age 57

retirement ordinance will mean
mandatory retirement for Police
Chief E. C. Hale, Fire Chief
Earl McDaniel and 14 other officers in the police and fire departments.
Park's written opinion explained that while the age 68

Kent State Trys to Pick Up the Pieces



Freshman orientation and the
problems which face all first year
students is another concern of the
student affairs office. It is investigating the possibility of a "service fraternity" to advise all incoming freshmen, a move which
would be aimed at replacing the
current system of advising.
"The Student Government Office of Student Affairs is convinced," said Brown, "that hard
work, implemented in an organized manner, will serve the
needs of the University community far better than the circus
antics of the Assembly."

'Spring in Ohio'
The campus and . national
events during April inevitably led
to some type of confrontation on
the Kent campus. It was indeed
"Spring in Ohio" and emotions
were simmering when President
Nixon announced his invasion of
Cambodia. The Kent State campus, however, was different than
the hundreds of similar campuses
across the nation in that the Ohio
National Guard was yanked off
its duty of protecting scab truck
drivers, and placed in the hot deb
of anger that was American youth
during that week.
The subsequent events are history now, yet it cannot be said
that the "Kent Stater" just happened. Nor is it correct to place
blame on any individual occurence. Like most tragedies of
this nature, Kent simply had the
proper ingredients for turmoil. To

Gregory promised. "I plan to be at each of
my district offices at least two

Asked how he would vote on
gun law legislation (his opponent
voted affirmatively) Cregory said
he could not say because he feels
that voters are not told what he
called the essential details of issues. But he added:
"I don't think such legislation
is the right method to reduce
crime. A criminal doesn't ordinarily buy a gun in a store; he
usually obtains it by other means.
Registration of firearms will not
keep guns from the criminal. I
suggest that the penalty for committing a crime with a weapon
be stiffened."
His position on U.S. involvement in the Middle East was
one which seemed to be shared
by most of his audience. "Although our interests in resources
in the Middle East are being
threatened by the present crisis,
we should not send any of our
military there. I feel that shipping arms and equipment to our
allies is sufficient. If there was
a direct threat to our freedom,
we would be justified in becoming militarily involved."
Voluntary Army Not Practical
Questioned about the feasibility of the establislunent of a
voluntary army, Gregory said;
"The concrpt is not practical. The news media have crucified and downgraded the image

The Irony of Unreality
Without being petty in analyzing an otherwise beneficial and commendable speech, students should take offense at one portion of President Singletary's University Senate address. In stating his position on
where students should stand in University affairs, Dr. Singletary made
an extremely simplistic and unrealistic dichotomy of definitions. Singletary sees the choice before him as one of granting "student power,"
which he defines as allowing student to run the University, or "student
participation," which he sees as listening to the voice of students.
If this is an indication of President Singletary's basic orientation
in dealing with students, it is not surprising that he is bewildered by
the communication breakdown. Only the most radical students at UK
are mentioning student power in the sense it is defined by our president; only the most subvervient students are willing to accept the
situation of participation as he categoriezes it.
There is a middle ground of student concern to which most students
adhere. This position can best be described by a
