Senate meeting focuses
on Krislov tenure report

Kernel Staff Writer
A lengthy discussion concerning the
Krislov Report on tenure and promotion
dominated the University Senate meeting
Monday Avote on its 10 recommendations
is scheduled for the April 8 meeting.
The report was placed on the agenda for
discussion only at a previous meeting but
no formal votes were taken. Amendments
were proposed and discussed but could not
be passed at either meeting
Each recommendation was discussed
separately and the ad hoc committee
suggested that they be voted on in-

KRISLt)\"S Report resulted from an
ad hoc committee study to re-evaluate
tenure and promotion. which was
established by the Senate in fall 1972. The
committee was composed of 13 faculty.
students and administrators.

No significant changes were suggested
by the committee but it did offer 10
changes in the present system.

The changes include It prior service
rules; it faculty files. 3) information for
new faculty members; 4) performance
review and tenure; 5t defining standards
for tenure; tit names for area committees;
7 t advisory committees within colleges; 8t
reasons for nonrenewal; 9t advising and
Hit student evaluations.

discussion was the recommendation
suggesting student evaluations be included
in decisions made for faculty promotion
and tenure.

After several Senate members ex-
pressed displeasure WIth the idea of
student evaluation. Joseph Krislov, chair-
man of the ad hoc committee on tenure
and promotion. said he did not think the
suggestion was a very revolutionary

He added comments from students
would be presented to Senate area com-
mittees and didn't think there would be
reason to fear going overboard.

Citizen‘s indifference

Whether the citizens of Kentucky wish to admit it.
their collective indifference has stripped the state
legislature of its role in the lawmaking process: by
proxy. it has given the governor virtual dictatorial


Normal procedures call for a bill passed by both
houses to be sent to the governor. who in his turn.
either signs. or vetoes. it.

In the latter case. the bill is returned to the
legislature and again brought up for a vote. If a two-
thirds majority supports the bill. it becomes law in

spite of the govemor‘s veto.
That is all weLl and good. but it. doesn’t work that

way in Kentucky.

There is a stipulation in the statutes which gives
Ford 10 days after the session ends to act on any bill
passed within the final ten days of that session. In
other words. any bill sent to Ford within the final ten
days of the session is subject to gubernatorial veto
without a subsequent review by the legislature.

The implications of this practice are staggering.

For instance.

if a bill

passes both houses

unanimously. but within the last ten days of the
session. Ford can veto it. To do so would, of course. go
against the wishes of the majority (in this example)

but he does indeed have the power.

And the

legislature can't do a thing about it.

Since Kentucky's legislature is famous for waiting
until the last minute to submit the vast majority of its
legislation. virtually all important legislation is at
Ford’s mercy. And the legislature is powerless to act

in defense of its bills.

Kentuckians can. however, bring this practice to an
end. For one. with a bill which calls for all guber-
natorial vetoes to be made while the legislature is still
in session. For another, to make explicit in the law
that all bills vetoed must be referred back to the
legislature for review and an override vote. A third
possibility is annual sessions (although voters have
shown an amazing reluctance to allow their elected
representatives to perform anything more than

rubber stamp duties).

Letters to the Kernel

Lawson King vs. the streakers

This letter concern“. the alt
tention of (‘ounty Attorney
Lawson King to “ask for
maxim um sentences for indecent
exposure of $5.001) fines and one
year tn jail." iThe ('ourier-
Journal. March 8. l974l. for the
two ‘streakers' charged with
indecent exposure at the

This action could well lay the
groundwork for the legal in
stitution to move forward in
erasing the more serious crimes
in today's society. for example.
jaywalking. parking on yellow
lines. and-or driving barefoot.

It is interesting to see a public
official in a position of respon-
sibility approach his duty with
such fervor. loyalty. and sense of
righteousness. In fact. it seems
that legal fervor can only ap—
proach such a high pitch when
one‘s sense of righteousness is

there is no reason for alarm
Each individual will be counseled

It should also be emphasized
that increased risk of vaginal

. :uch less~ to recommend the economic
ren‘wlies This lack of public under—
standing seriously threatens the con-
tinuation of our competitive private
mterprise system.

In America pubiic understanding is
fundamental. The people still have the

ultimate power. Nothing endures—not.
on Capitol Hill, not in Detroit, and not
anywhere in our nation~except by
the will and vote of the American
people, however unwieldy, however
imperfect, however capricious the dem-
ocratic system may seem. In the last
analysis, the pepple determine what
regulations will govern our economy
and the condua of our business.

Remember when we used to say,
"Fifty million Frenchmen can't be
wrong." Now 200 million Americans
can be wrong on balance if a growing
number of them believe, as they seem
to, that profits are too high, that more
regulation is needed, and that big buSi-
was: is getting too big.

The opinion polls present a grim
:irithn‘etic. According to a recent sur.
vey. only 3 per cent of the American
people th'nk business as a whole is
not making enough profit. while 33
per cent—or more than ten times as
many—think business is making too
much profit. The latest public estimate
of the average manufacturer's after-
tax profit is 28 cents on the dollar.
whereas actually he earns in the neigh-
borhood Of a nickel.

For the first time since World War
fl, a majority of Americans no longer
thinks that companies should be al-
lowed to make all the profits they can.
The trend instead shows a growing


public support tor a government ceil-
ing on profits. And it may be signifi-
cant that this study was taken before
the energy situation was brought to
the forefront of public attention by the
oil embargo.

The public is wrong. Dangerously
wrong, because the typical corporation
is not the insensitive, unchanging in-
accessible giant that so many picture
it to be. On the contrary, it is one of
the most flexible and responsive of
man's creations. It takes on the char-
acter of its times.

We in General Motors know there
is no conflict between corporate prof
its and social progress. We know that
each is necessary for the other. Wt
expect that the American corporation
will continue an be one of the most
effective and efficient assets to so-
ciety that mankind has devised to

We make these contributions todaj.
