President Ford addresses high school students

srév: SANDERS/Kernel sun

Former President Gerald Ford talks with area high school students
yesterday at the Lafayette Club in Lexington.

Associate Editor

Former US President Gerald
Ford told 50 select Fayette County
High School students last night
that he is in favor of Kentucky
Sen. Mitch McConnell’s recent
proposal for American military to
shoot down planes carrying illegal

“I have no reservations with the
military taking drastic action,"
Ford told the group at the Lafayette
Club yesterday.

Ford, who is the nation’s only
president not to be directly elected,
addressed the students‘ questions
that included his views on President
Bush’s drug policy, changes in the
Russia, the recently failed coup in
Panama and his least favorite mo-
ments in the White House.

The informal meeting preceded a
closed speech on “America’s Eco-
nomic Challenge at Home and
Abroad" that was part of the Dis-
tinguished Lecture Series sponsored
by the Executive Women’s Coun‘
cil and the Board of Governors of
the Lafayette Club.

In dealing with the nation’s drug
policy, Ford said more education
and treatment is needed. He also
said that more interdiction is needed
to stop drugs from being imported
into the United States, and addi-
tional prosecutors and judges also
are needed

“We must stop the demand for
drugs," Ford said. “(Marijuana and
alcohol) are gateway drugs to hard
drug areas."

Ford also said he is concerned
with the smuggling of assault
weapons into the United States.

Referring to the shooting at
Standard—Gravure in Louisville,
Ky., in which nine people were
killed, Ford said that although he
has never owned a gun or had one
in his home, he believes people
who use guns properly do have the
right to own them.

“Those who use the assault
weapons are the criminals that
should be put away," he said. “Re-
strictions we currently have on im-
porting assault weapom ls abso»
Iutely desirable.”

Ford suggested changes I "ed to
be made concerning how guns are
purchased in the United States, in-
cluding requiring a delay on the
purchase ofall firearms.

Ford said he has been impressed
by President Bush’s desire to be the
nation’s “education president." Ford
said that Bush’s recent conference

BERLIN — Communist offi-

government‘s hardvline stance.
news reports said yesterday.

Prominent Lutheran official
Hans Otto Furian, meanwhile,
said in East Berlin that the
Communist Party “must give
up its grip on total power."

There were increasing signs of
willingness yesterday by some
Communist Party officials to
talk with pro-democracy acti-
vists. But East German leader
Erich Honecker reiterated his
hard-line stance.

Also yesterday there were con-
flicting reports as to whether the
Lutheran Church had taken up a
dialogue with the central govem-
mentor whether the contacts re-
mained on the local level.

West Germany‘s ZDF televi-
sion network, quoting high-level
church sources, said that “talks

BUDAPEST, Hungary —
Some opposition politicians
yesterday predicted political in-
stability as a result 0 of compro-
mises made at a historic and
formed a new Socialist group.

The four-day congress that
ended Monday overwhelmingly
approved a new party line call-
ing for “a constitutional state
based on a multiparty system
where the source of the power is
the will of the people expressed
in free elections."

11 adopted a manifesto pledg-
ing commitment to democracy
and a break with the Leninist

But still unclear is whether
the new party will divest itself
of all remnants of Communist
rule, and how fast.

The congress elected Rczsoc
Nyers, formerly Communist
Party chairman, as president of
the new party. It named a 25-
membcr presidiuin, where re-
formers are in the majority.

Several hundred people, and
possibly thousands, were anest-
ed in weekend demonstrations.

Communist officials in Dres-
den first met with opposition
leaders on Monday. Berghofer
said another meeting was sched-
uled for next week.

The 77-year old Honecker has
given no indication he is about

Hungarian radio said yesterday.
It quoted him as saying in an in-
terview with a Finnish newspa-
per that “too many differences
among the reformers” exist.

The opposition initially re—
acted to the new party with
skepticism, and some people
privately said they were not im-
pressed by the change because
economic problems persist.

Speaking at a rally of about
600 people yesterday, Nyers ac-
knowledged that the new party
had image problems.

“Some still feel that the Com-
munists are incapable of demo-

He told reporters later that

issues divided the party: party

Author moves from spy genre to religion with new book

iUSA TODAY/Apple College
Information Network

Having recently crossed that rubi-
con of adult life. his 40th binhday,
Ken Follett is having something
akin to a literary midlife crisis. The
author of such best-selling thrillers
as “Eye of the Needle" and “The
Key to Rebecca.“ has turned his
back on the genre.

At 973 pages. ”The Pillars of the
Earth" (Morrow, $22.95) certainly
requires more than one airplane
flight to finish. Set in the 12th cen<
tury, the book weaves a tale around
the building of a fictional English

While Follett admits switching
from the primarily male spy genre
to historical fiction is a gamble, he
points out that it is not his first
switch. in 1983, he wrote the non-
fiction best seller “On Wings of Ea-

US. businessmen in Iran.

Follett‘s fascination with cathe-
drals began in 1973. A reporter for
the London Evening News, Follett
found himself in East Anglia kill-
ing time before his train departed.
He was struck by the splendor of
the Peterborough cathedral, built in
the 12th century. “It was the size
and the majestic perfection of the
whole thing," Follett says.

Although he abandoned his career
as a journalist after his success
with the World War II thriller “Eye

was 27 — Follett pursued his in—

Pillars of the Earth." Follett hired a

A resident of London, Follett
keeps office hours at home, writing
from 9 am. to 4 pm. Before he
actually starts writing, he works
out the plot.

Of all his characters, Follett
found Philip the monk the most
sympathetic “despite his celibacy
—— which I have no identification

with." Married for the second time,
he is the father of two and stepfa-
ther of three.

Nor did writing about religious
fervor of the Middle Ages stir him.

“i like Philip‘s passion, his am-
bition, his ideals, but his theology
leaves me cold. I’m not a relig-
ious person at all."

Colleges stress grades

Continued from page I signed up for a series of even-

ing classes to prepare for the
SAT, taught by Carol Cathey, a
counselor at Port St. Joe High.
It's the kind of SAT-prep course
that parents elsewhere pay to get
from private firms.

“When I decided I was going
to teach the course, the school
board decided to pay for it,” Ca-
they said.

Cathey's program is part of a
countywide effort to turn around
students’ attitudes toward col-
lege, embraced by Superinten-
dent Walter Wilder whose enthu—
siasm spreads through both high

“We have a total buyoin by
the counseling staff,” Wilder
said. “And we have it set up so
every teacher is a counselor" —
each takes responsibility for
guiding up to 15 students from
ninth grade through graduation.

Credits, which can be convert-
ed to scholarship dollars at grad-
uation, are earned for grades, at—
tendance, volunteer activities and
parent involvement.

As each report card comes out,
students who earn all A’s and
B‘s get a gold card good for dis-
counts at local stores, free ad-
mission to school dances and
sports events.

In other places, where college
is expected to be the next step
after high school, some new
trends are being noticed:

“We just pore over that tran-
script," said Bob Lay, dean of
enrollment management at Bos-
ton College. “We look at the
challenges the kids have accept-
ed. How hard they have pushed
themselves in the program.”

Ed Custard, admissions dean
at Florida’s New College, one of
the nation‘s most selective pub-
lic schools, said: “We’re looking

net worth of $5.2 billion.

Not that Walton is in the poor-

his kids are Nos. 21-24.

The contrast

ing has been upset this year. The
whole image of the nation's richest
man changes, too. Walton, 71, al-
though fabulously wealthy, lives a
rather humble lifestyle. He drives a

was swayed by



Admitting that you made a mistake is not always an easy
thing to do, but the example UK Athletics Director C.M.
Newton set Monday by asking the UK Athletics Ticket
Committee not to take away 56 of the student body’s
lower-arena seats should be noted by his fellow


Shortly after Newton announced on Thursday that students
would have to give up 56 prime seats to boosters who were
financing Memorial Coliseum’s renovations, the athletics office
realized the mistake it had made: UK students are among the
basketball team’s strongest supporters, and taking away some
of their best seats was perceived by some as an indictment of

their loyalty.

Taking away the students’ seats would have surely widened
the already significant gap between the student body and
alumni. And during these trying times, the last thing the
basketball team needs is division among its fans.

While it was refreshing to see the athletics department act
quickly on the problem, there are still some questions about
how the process was handled initially. Students were never
told about the decision, or even about the possibility that they
would lose some tickets. Furthermore, officials seemed to have
ignored the proper channels to take the tickets away.

Newton announced Monday that the University only needs
42 seats to give to boosters, and those seats could be taken
from the allotment that the University normally hands out to
recruits, supporters and corporate sponsors. That leaves the
question why the University could not have used those tickets
in the first place and avoided the trouble of stepping on

students’ toes.

Before Monday night’s meeting of the Student Athletic
Council Newton said there probably will be occasions when
the athletics department may ask students to give up some of

their tickets for special events.

UK Student Government Association President Sean
Lohman proclaimed Monday that Newton’s decision not to
