3rd district councilman ‘
will run for re-election

Copy Editor

'lhis article is the fourth in a weekly
series concerning candidates for
Urban County Corarcil in the student-
populated 3rd and 4th districts.

Urban County Councilman Bill
Bingham, facing re-election in
November, feels his 18~month tenure
on the council has been a success
becaus of the small, personal
problems he’s solved for members
of lis corstituency.

“I’ve accomplished a lot of small
things,” said the 3rd district
representative. “The council’s
structure enables a councilman to
dealwith smaller things. I think I’ve
dare what the people want. That's
my first priority."

Bingham‘s only opponent in the
race is Joe Jasper, who lost the seat
to Bingham by only 140 votes in the
last election.

With most other candidates in the
race listing traffic or housing as
Lexington’s priority problems,
Bingham mid he feels it has been
impresible for lu'm to solve such
problems drring his term.


“liaising and traffic are alike,”
he said “What can you do unless the
private sector or the federal
government is willing to come along
with a program? Of course the 3rd
district bears the brunt of the traffic
problem.” The District is located on
UK‘s northwest side.

Bingham’s main concern about
sewer installation, another often
mentioned local problem, is that
they be made affordable for low-
income families and people on fixed

Binglem feels there are few
problems peculiar to the students
living in his district, but is con-
cerned about the difficulties they
have crossing busy intersections.
“But I haven't made any concrete
proposals to the University to help
solve these problems." Bingham
also favors construction of more
bike paths.

“1 worrki like to see the Univer-
sity’s resources involved in com-
munity problems. The University is
They don‘t think it’s there for them.
“I would also like to see students
more invdved in government Often
students, because of their tramient

nature, don’t get involved,” he said.
Some members of the University
are getting involved in local
government by running for council
seats. In the student-populated 4th
district, two out of the three can-
didates are politically inexperienced
members of the UK community.
Bingham doesn‘t think this
inexperience is bad.“Business
experience might help, but the
council is an opportunity for the
average man. I believe a coun-
cilman reeds good, common sense
and good judgment. I don’t think I’d
want to be a traditional politician.”
Bingham isn’t publically sup-
portirg any of the five announced
mayrral candidates. but he believes
attracting black votes will be the key
to winning the election. Bingham is
one of three black councilmen.
“I'll vote for the progressive
candidate. The one who is willing to
give black people and women more
representation. The present way
blacks are not represented in the
higher levels of government is ap-
pallirg. I think Lexington is ready
for a black commissioner, a high-
rankirg black police official and

Inexcuseable absence

Senators sit home while students get shaft on withdraw policy

With scarcely a fourth of the elected student
senators present, the University Senate passed a
new rrocedure for withdrawing from classes
that is sure to cause headaches for students.

The Senate voted to extend from 10 to 17 class
days the time a student is allowed to withdraw
from class without a grade. But after that 17-day
period. a class can be dropped only through a
procedure whereby a student must petition by
citing urgent reasons, such as an extended

The change was made without due con-
sideration of student registration and advising
problems. Passage of the new procedure was the
result of extensive pressure by administrators in
the College of Arts & Sciences, who were seeking
to ease the filing load caused by increasing
numbers of students dropping courses several
weeks into the semester.

There are a number of reasons why students
need a reasonable amount of time-certainly
more than a few class meetings—before being

committed. Current UK publications that list
class offerings and a short course description do
not provide enough information for students to
fully understand what they are getting into.

The quality of advising and syllabi, of course,
depends on the efforts of individual professors.
Students are not known to complain greatly
about syllabi, but sad tales about inadequate
advising abound. In point of fact, there are far
too many advisers that simply don’t know
University requirements.

Instead of creating a procedure for the con-
venience of A & S personnel, the University
Senate ought to address itself to advising
deficiencies and skimpy course descriptions.

Although the student representatives from the
16 academic colleges are outnumbered by
faculty and administrative members by about 7-
1, University Senate President Dr. Connie Wilson
said that if more student representatives had
attended, the new procedure might have been

Only eight of the 25 student senators bothered
to show up. The rest were apparently on an
extended spring break or perhaps they view
their senate membership as a nice resume item
rather than an obligation to support the needs of
their constituency.

One student, John Scircle, from the College of
Education, deserves praise for attending the
meeting, but should have his head examined for
voting in suppa‘t of the procedure.

Student Government President Mike
McLaughlin, a voting member of the Senate,
opptsed the new procedure but failed to use the
power of his position to mold a concerted drive
against it. Indeed, SG—- the Student Senate and
the executive branch— expended virtually no
energy all year on academic matters affecting

the area. Some of the surprises can
turn out to be on the familiar side.
For example, one night at our
campsite we were doing up a little
toomuch tequila.At9p.m.,two guys
carrying a canoe came walking out
of...the ocean. They introduced

. themselves as if they were Huntley

and Brirkley and announced they
were from Western Kentucky
University. Weird, I thought, but

especially Key West—can turn into
an encounter with the Unknown for



those with inquisitive minds.

By going to the Keys, you can also
avoid the gigantic hassles of the
Daytonas and the Lauderdales,
a-‘fthough the prices are inflated just
like everywhere else in the state.

Of course, few of us have enough
money to stay in Key West, but
that‘s no bother—the island may be
enjoyed without paying outrageous
hotel bills.

The first step is to rent a campsite
at the Sunshine Key Holiday

Campground, 40 miles up from Key
West and just southwest of Seven
Mile Bridge. The price for five
campers on a site is a mere dollar a
night, and that includes showers,
fresh drinking water, a pool, tennis
courts. a marina and beachfront
sites for those who reserve spots
about three months in advance.

The first—and probably best—
thing you should do after you get
your tent set up is to head into Key
West for the daily sunset ritualat the
western pier. The celebration
usually begins at about 5:30 pm.
The sight is amazing. All of a sudden
you are in a foreign culture, full of
acrobats, jugglers, musicians,
magicians, body contortionists and

drums, bells and maracas. Beside
them. a woman will be handling
snakes and rhythmically moving her

body. A guy will be dancing along,
occasionally exhorting the gathered
crowd to surrender to some weird
God of Reckless Abandon.

Down the pier a bit, a traveling
troupe known as the Loco-Motion

around, telling jokes and passing the
hat. Next to them, two dudes from

first hits the horizon. Then, when it

I am stunned by the Food and
Drug Administration‘s recent ban on
saccharin. The diabetics who use
saccharin as a sugar substitute do
need the substance to maintain the
paper sugar level in their bodies.
Bit what shocks me more is the way
in which the harmful effects of
saccharin came about.

The so-called scientific processes
which are used to determine how
harmful a substance is to humans
ins long baffled me. How can our
scientist claim, that based on a
Indy of rats which were given large
amounts of the substance in ques-
tion, a drug or product is dangerous

Over-consumption of most any
aibstance by man can produce

harmful side-effects. Water can kill,

The saccharin ban brings back the

mimal studies are. Let this latest
inn be the call to science to use a
little bit of logic in their future tests.

Tougher sentencing is not
answer to reducing crime

New York Times News Service

WASHINGTON—Growing numbers of
criminolrgists and politicians are urging
tougher sentencing as a way of reducing
street crime. They argue that increasing
the number of offenders sent to prison
will decrease the crime rate, either by
removing the more prolific criminals
from the streets or by deterring others
from yielding to temptation.

Politicars of both parties have em-
braced this logic. Jimmy Carter has
called for imprisoning a higher per-


centage of serious criminals and
eliminating much of the discretion given
to '11ng and probations officers.

Other people are impressed with the
theory that the surge in crime is caused
by the postwar-baby boom. As this
generation enters its crime-prone years,
this theory states, all that is required is
essentially a holding action—put these
petple away until the population bulge
passes, and eventually the problem of
unacceptable crime statistics will
largely solve itself.



What «in society really expect from
these prrposah? Of course, all of them
are almost certain to increase the
number of prisoners, even if sentences
are shortened. Most state systems are
already overcrowded; many are
operating at 130 per cent or more of

Based on population increases alone,

this nation will have 120,000 more adults
behind bars in 1985 than in 1970. Billions
d dollars in new prison construction is
scheduled for the next few years; yet at
a cost of $35,000 to $50,000 per cell, we
can safely asume that the kind of
overcrowding that helped spark Attica
will get worse long before it gets better.

Can society expect harsher sentences
to deter crime? The white-collar of-
fender may weigh the risks of punish-
ment, but the street offender— the one
who is the case of our alarm— most
probably does not. With no job, no op-
portunity, no close family ties, he may
well believe he has more to gain than he
has to lose.

As for reducing crime simply by
Iockirg up enough lawbreakers— even if
it works, we must ask this question: for
how long and at what cost to them and
ourselves? Is the plan to keep them, and
the many others that our slums will
continue to produce, behind bars for
life? Even if it succeeds, will this ap-
proach make our society more just, or
more repressive?

Most disturbing, all these proposals
fail to corsider the social injustices that
breed the alarming incidence of street
crime. Unemployment among black
teenagers between the ages of 16 and 19
is now at 34 per cent. For the poverty
areas of our cities, the figure is put at 57
per cent.

Boredom, the desire for money in the
pocket, resentment about having no
access, even by hard work, to the things
that most of society enjoys- these are
some of the ingredients of crime by
youths, who are responsible for a

Fearing profit losses

Insurance business fights ERA

Continued from page 2

Spiro T. Agnew's reversal of
sentiment on the ERA closely fol-
lowed a generous contribution by
Stone, who also contributed later to
the Agnew Defense Fund.

In Nebraska anti-ERA literature
was distributed with the claim that
the ERA would legalize topless
entertainment, allow women to
appear nude in public, and allow
male and female dancers and cust~
aners in bars to strip bare; it was
traced to the office of A.G. Willing,
who manages the Hartford Insur-
ance Group.

Assorted other campaigners
against the ERA sell insurance
mlicies. In some cases the insur-
ance connection is so blatant that
“Stop ERA" literature is found

Why insurance? A substantial
portion of insurance profits are the
result of extreme sex discrimination
in rates and coverage, combined
with guilt-trip pitches aimed at men
with dependent wives.

Sex discrimination in life insur—
ance takes the form of ignoring the
statistical differential in favor of
women, while using it to justify
lower benefits for life-retirement
imurance; in health insurance
women frequently pay up to 150 per
tent of what men pay, despite the
fact that their benefits are of shorter
titration and pregnancy-related ill-
nesses, as well as “female dis-
orders," are usually excluded.

Divorced women are repeatedly

growing proportion of violent street

Amazingly, more than three per cent
of this nation’s nonwhite male'
population between the ages of 18 and 34
was imprisoned in 1970. This figure is six
times the percentage for whites.

Can anyme seriously doubt the con-
nection between these out-of-proportion
figures and the out-of—proportion
unemployment rates for this country’s
nonwhite slum dwellers?

I am not saying poverty equals crime.
That would be absurd. I am merely
stating the obvious: that poverty and the
cluster of ills that go with it create the
conditions that make street crime more

Not only do these conditions tax the
resolve of adults who have been brought
up “right”; they also often destroy any
chance that children will be brought up
well at all.

When we realize that the problem has
these causes, tougher sentencing seems
a false solution. At best, it is mere

Street crime has no nostrums apart
from [rofound social reforms, which are
generally expensive, inefficient and
unpqiular. But that is no excuse for
simplistic rhetoric.

It is always easy to concede the
inevitability of social injustice and find
the serenity to accept it. The far harder
task is to feel its intolerability and seek
the arength to change it.


David L. Bazelon is Chief Judge of the
United States Court of Appeals in

state hands, but the ERA could lead
to state action permitting review of
state laws applying to the industry.

As early as 1970 insurance exe
cutives expressed fear of the “super
liberated woman” and attendant
changes that abortion, birth control,
and single motherhood would re-
quire in health coverage.

They worry about the imposition
d maternity benefits and equal
benefit rates, and they share with
other industries the fear of equal pay
for equal work, since insurance
companies are large employers of
women, mostly in low-paying jobs.

The very rationale for buying
