Taylor says law schools turn out
'cogs in a conformist society'

DENOl’NCEMENTof established law school and
law practice procedures and a plea for more
lawyers to work for the people were voiced Wed-
nesday night by radical Louisville lawyer Dan

“It‘s kind of rough for your whole career to hang
in the balances of whatyou do on a four-hour test. I
can‘t see anything wrong with academic excellence.
but it does seem that the lack of patience with
some people who would become lawyers does offend
me somewhat." the controversial lawyer told the

“The law schools don‘t expose students to the
maniacs in the profession. There‘s an alternate way

He said the law schools generally are turning out

cogs. the machinery stops.

Stick close to home

University community members troubled by en-
vironmental dangers including the Red River Dam
and a Chairlift in the Cumberland State Park may find
it necessary to stick close to home this summer when
a public hearing is staged on the Newtown Pike


The expressway, called “one of the most critically
needed projects in Lexington ’5 proposed street
system," would split the campu: along Euclid Avenue
if allowed construction under present plans. Much to
our dissatisfaction, UK administrators have agreed
to cooperate with highway officials. We would rather
have the administration discourage the plans as being
detrimental to the safety of community members.

While we maintain an interest in Lexington’s
future, we find the highway an ominous threat to the
well-being of this community. The five-lane roadway
would effectively cutoff the north campus residence
halls from central campus.

A pedestrian overpass would seem entirely
warranted but UK’s official statement so far has
called this plan “an eyesore to the campus.”

It was justa little more than a year ago when many
of us laughed at a proposal by a Student Government
presidential candidate to install a 24-hour traffic cop
at the Harrison-Euclid intersection. Now it may be a


Though SG president-elect David Mucci and his
vice president Mike Wilson campaigned on a platform
to protect students from this asphalt weapon, it must
be understood they can‘t stop it by themselves. A
hearing in July or August won’t give them much
student backing either. That’s why it is necessary for
those charged with scheduling the public hearing to
heed Mucci's forthcoming request to hold off until
September when school is again in full swing.

Brewers insure materials

WASHINGTON — Across the
country. small groups of citizens
are wrestling with utilities. oil
companies, mining corporations,
mills and processors to retrieve
earth. air and water. At the same
time, on television. the United
States Brewers Association has
hired a folk singer to tell us that if
we put trash in the container,
“We can breath a fresher air,
there‘a more beauty everywhere-
‘cause more people seem to care-
they‘re all Pitchin' In!“

Presumably the brewers have
spent all that dough on the Pitch
In campaign in fear that, unless
their inebriated customers are
taught better manners. some
lawmakers may decide that
American civilization might not
be irreparably damaged by the
disappearance of the pop-top can.

The likelihood, however. is that
the brewers will be allowed to
continue to provide their clientele
with refuse to litter the land-
scape. with just as little protest

as McDonald's and the other
tranchise hamburger joints

.\’I‘ THE same time. the

brewers are contributing to

misleading the gullible into
believing that, if they pick up
other people‘s Big Mac wrap-
pings, fish will reappear in our
waters and birds in our air.
Maybe the brewers should be
forced to buy time for people to
answer the mischievous TV ads.

That may not work either.
Mobil Oil has been offering to pay
for time for people to respond to
an ad asserting there is a
worldwide shortage of crude oil.
The networks wouldn’t put it on
the air.

Their refusal doesn’t stem
from a just and angry umbrage
at the price of gasoline at the
pump, but more probably from a
knowledge that many ads, even
ones primarily selling a product
and not an idea, have a
propaganda aspect to them which
could be challenged with a
demand for sponsor-paid rebuttal

\tiT t).\'l,\' would that be very
expensive. but the cigarette
experience suggests that coun-
teradvertising can be very ef-
tective. so much so it may be
better not to advertise on the air
at all if the antis must be given
equal time.

You can't say


You can‘t say we didn’t ask for it. When
the sudden pronouncements of Sen. Cook
and Gov. Ford swept through the news, we
could only mutter what ifs and wonder how
things had been changed. We never
thought much about Ford openly declaring
for the dam since the bureaucratic process
was steadily hulking along without state

The petitions, the march, and our
position—bristling with facts and alter-
natives that tears at the rational heart of
the Corps project~voiced by local officials
and cogent spokespeople were to have at
least precluded Ford‘s open support for
the inundation of the graceful gorge. We
have probably placed the gorge's fate
unwittingly on the outcome of a partisan
political foray.

FOR THE Red River issue the extent to
which the process is overtly political, even
in Washington, jars our conceptions of
governmental functions. Corps of
Engineers Public Works projects are
mostly a pork barrel where congressmen
bring home a slab of money which usually
benefits the business elites of the area for
reciprocal political support.

In the Senate such affairs are handled
like the selection of Post Masters, i.e.
Senatorial Courtesy. “How can we oppose
a project in your state; it is like telling our
colleagues from your state we know what's
best for their state,” we were told.
Besides, the Red River project was
authorized in 1962 on an omnibus bill for
projects in 2&3 congressional districts and
every state in the union.)

Many congressmen do not even glance
at the benefit-cost ratio— an analysis done
by the Corps and required by law because
“the Corps can always manipulate the
date to prove what they want.”

allows the Corps a very free hand to
proceed on such dubious economic
assumptions as we feel they are in the case
of Red River Dam.

Of recent years there have been a
number of reforms instituted on Corps
projects. Many of them contain “Grand-
father clauses" that allow already
authorized projects to remain unaffected
by the reform. Red River Dam is to con-
tinue to utilize a 31/4 per cent discount
lending rate and not the 6.8 per cent rate



With the failure of the jury to convict
Mitchell and Stans in the Vesco case,
speculation abounds on the credibility of
the prosecution's chief witness, John
Dean, and the implications for the sub-
sequent Watergate trials and Nixon's

But to my mind, the surprise verdict of
the jury casts more doubt on the
credibility of the jury system than on the
credibility of Dean or the guilt of Mitchell
and Stans.

WITH HIS dead-panned look that ap-
propriately characterized this symbol of
law and order, former Attorney General
Mitchell reaffirmed his faith in the jury
system, representing a “cross section of
Americans." Mitchell confided, ”If there
is one place I‘m fairly convinced you can

10 per cent used in the real financial
world). Another example is the
requirement thata ny project undergoing a
major design change receive new
congressional authorization but only for
projects after 1970.

The Red River project fails to qualify
under this new provision since the major
design change in moving the dam site
occurred in 1969. The 1973 Federal flood
Insurance Act barring federal expenditure
in flood plains after June 1975 as yet has an
undetermined application to the Red River
Flood Plain.

THE ONLY measure of reform that
affects the Red River project is the final

procedure. The EIS does carry political
clout because embarassing lawsuits can
occur if it is deficient. Since that document
has not yet been filed for the Red River

people." Mitchell neglected to explain that
his jury was a very special cross~section.

Last summer Mitchell’s attorney, Peter
Fleming Jr., hired a “media analyst".
Marty Herbst, to conduct interviews in the
New York City area from which the jurors
would be called. The telephone survey
revealed that an overwhelming number of
persons thought Mitchell was guilty. This
reaction was broken down in terms of age.
income, education, ethnic characteristics
and religion. Then a second survey was
conducted to ascertain attitudes towards
women‘s lib, the grain deal. abortion, and
Nixon policies, thus providing a measure
of the larger issue of whether a person was
