Committee hears Red River Dam arguments

.’ . _,. a

Kernel Staff Writer

WASHINGTON, DC. — Supporters and opponents of the proposed Red
River Dam and Reservoir testified before the Senate and House Ap-
propriations Subcommittee here Thursday about the necessity of the $30
million project.

Among those speaking against the dam during the morning Senate session
and the afternoon House hearing was one UK student. two UK professors,
and Senator Marlow Cook.

Senator Walter “Dee" Huddleston and Representative Carl Perkins led th
group of proponents which consisted of Clay County Farmers and elected

SHELLEY GRIFFITH. commissioner of physical environment for UK
Student Government. briefly outlined the position of students on the con-
troversial issue and explained some fallacies of the proposal.

“University of Kentucky students are concerned because it would destroy
a unique recreational and educational area and would displace 55 families,"
she said.

The three major reasons for building the dam ~ flood control. water
supply and increased recreation facilities — were reviewed by UK biology
professor Robert Kuehne.

”ALTHOl'GH THE revtsed site spares two miles of the gorge, it inundates
five miles of the lower gorge,“ he said.

Kuehne said he was not among the environmentalists who favored the
upstream site when it was offered in 1971.

Another UK professor. David Richardson. economics. testifed about the
economics of the project and charged that the US. Army Corps of Engineers
used inaccurate figures.

RICHARDSON SAID he and another UK professor had closely studied the
Corps figures used in the draft environmental impact statement. He ex-
plained that if current interest rates were used in figuring the benefit-cost
ratio. it would be less than H.

If the benefit cost ratio were less than 1-1 the federal government would
lose money on the overall project. No federal public works project, such as
the dam, can berecommended if the ratio is less than 1-1.

Cook, the only Kentucky congressman to voice opposition to the dam, said
the overwhelming opposition and the lack of proper justification are the
reasons he took the position.

“I DOUBT seriously that the project can withstand close scrutiny on its
technical merits. The case against the project is air tight and we now have a
chance to win a victory for the people over government,” he said.

Cook requested the project be discontinued immediately and that neither
committee recommend the requested $200,000 fiscal year 1975 ap-
propriations. Cook publicly denounced the project in a statement Wed—

His opponent in the current 0.8. senate raes, Kentucky Gov. Wendell
Ford, came out in favor of the project shortly after Cook’s position was

'Good guy' awards

State legislators William Kenton and Joe Graves
receive this week's Ralph Nader good guys award"
for their efforts requesting an investigation of
unusually high Ashland Oil Co. gasoline prices in the
Lexmgton area.

The two conducted a survey of several service
stations on April 14 and released results that showed
Ashland prices ranged from five to 11 cents higher
than competitors.

One Ashland representative explained to the
lawmakers that the prices were temporarily higher
than other companies because Ashland had pur-
chased between 2.8 and 3 million barrels of crude oil
from Iran at high prices.

Kenton and Graves. however. believe the company
should abosrb the high cost of the gasoline instead of
passing unfair prices on to consumers. They also

question how the company can ethically put up such a
high price when reporting earning increases of 28. 4
per cent in 1973. over those of 1972.

There‘are those whom are out
to destroy our faith and trust in
vitamins. My friends and I have
been taking vitamins for years. I
owe it to vitamins that I have the
endurance and stamina I now

Doctors have argued in the past
that if people would eat the
proper food they wouk'l have all
the vitamins they need. This is
another medical fallacy because
food processing plants take much
of the nutrition and vitamins out
of food =i.e. — artificial coloring
and flavoring for the sake of
commercial reasons i.

Man is the only creature on this
planet that cooks his food and in
the process he removes the
nutrients before he even begins to
eat. So. it is only natural that man
should have a vitamin sup-
plement with his diet. Doctors
have the fear that vitamins will
steal their patients from them
and this will cost the doctors a

This past year. Columbia
University has proven in ex-
periments that lack of some

proteins in the diet can lead to
psychosis. In the studies of the
diets of ghetto children. it has
been found that lack of proper
nutrition was responsible for
many mental disorders as well as

There is also the weak
argument of taking too many
vitamins. but too much of
anything is not good. food. sun-
shine. and other good things.
Doctors have been afraid for
years that Vitamin E would take
the market as an aphrodisiac.

It has been proven that Vitamin
C helps remove colds. and zinc
supplement tablets are conducive
for prostrate problems in the
male. How many doctors suggest
that a patient resort to vitamins?
These are few and far betweeri
besides vitamins are good for
everyone from eight to eighty.

I observe many people eating
white bread and it is made from
cheap. bleached flour. I do not eat
bread unless it isdark bread; this
is where the true vitamins are

Any UK student worth his

lucky to be so close to Louisville

The argument could be raised
that the "diligent" student can
study beforehand. thereby

arranging his schedule to allow
for taking May 4 off. Any ex-
perienced student knows how
hectic and tul that last week
before finals is. with end-of-
semester papers and tests. Every
minute counts. and to ignore this
fact and go to the derby with
finals the day afta' you return
can significantly hurt

It seems to me that the state's
major university could arrange
to accommodate for this event.

Hove bonkers stepped the dollar exodus?

CHICAGO - Down to slightly
more than half of the no million
in deposits the bank once had. the
officers of South Shore National
here think they've stopped the
dollar exodus from their com-
munity. For awhile, however, it
looked as if the bait itself was
going to join the whites
streaming out of this formerly
wealthy area on the shores of
Lake Michigan.

It had made application with
the Controller of the Currency in
Washington to move downtown
into the new 80story Standard Oil
Building in the Loop. The desire
to get out didn't make the South
Shore Bank unique. On the city's
West Side. 300.000 blacks live
without a single bank.

IN GENERAL. Chicago‘s
banks may have redlined the
entire city. It is estimated. by a
few of the subversive types who
try to research these things. that
this city has a “disinvestment
rate" of 80 per cent. If true. that
means 80cents outofevery dollar
deposited in a Chicago bank is
invested outside the city.

You can get some confirmation
of that in the April issue of
Fortune magazine. where
Chicago‘s Continental Bank has a
two-page color ad boasting where
it and its holding-company
affiliates have provided real
estate financing. Only two of 18
projects mentioned are in the
state of Illinois. The rest are in
Texas. California. Toronto.
Montreal. Nova Scotia. Hawaii.
etc. etc.

All of this takes on an ad-
ditional irony when you
ieiiieiii‘uer 'u'ie iiaiiunai TV ad
campaign the industry has going.
glorifying your local. neigh-
borhood. "fullservice bank."
They show us example after
example of how a bank was able
to save a small. usually rural.
dying community

THE NEW management began
by abandoning banker’s hours
and staying open late enough to
accommodate the new population
with its high percentage of
working wives as well as
husbands. The 20-deep lines at
the tellers' windows were done
away with. and a major effort is
now underway to let the new folks
know the bank hasn‘t given up on
them and is genuinely soliciting
their business.

IT WOL'LD be interesting to
know how many urban com-
munities the banks may have
helped kill off by withdrawing
exactly the same services they
tell us are so indispensable.

They are indeed indispensable;
for the banking institutions.
besides lending other people‘s
money. are the unique and sole
conduits the government uses in
the creation of credit — that is.
apportioning out the all-
important borrowing power by
which everything does or does not
happen. That is why the decision
of the South Shore bank to stay in
what is now an 80 per cent black
community couki be important.

For it to happen. the bank had
to be sold to a group headed by
Ronald Grzywinski. a Chicago
banker with a record for making
his bank live up to its advertising.
The down payment was provided
by foundab'ons and a couple of
wealthy men who don't care to
maximize their profits. The rest
of the flaming of the total 83.2
million price was provided by the
billiondollar American National

Grzywinsiti. the white board
chairman. and Milton Davis. the
black president. have been going
through the neighborhood. at-
tending coffee meetings and
wine-and-cheese parties set up on
a block-by-block basis. to reach
prospective depositors.

Such forthright and friendly
behavior on the part of bankers is
as unheard of as it is welcome,
but whether it will work to save
the bank or the community is
another question. While there are
still a number of quite well-to-do
whites in the choicest lake-front
sections. the blacks coming in
don’t have the purchasing power
of the former inhabitants.

IF YOL‘ ignore inflation, the
dollar income of the area has held
steady for a number of years,
but. on the average. rents eat up
35 per cent of aftertax income.

In addition. Chicago, like most
other cities. still prefers to put its
dough into showy glamor
projects rather than the more-
ordinary efforts needed to en-
courage people to make small,
neighborhood investments. The
bank hopes it can generate
enough money so that. through a
non-profit firm owned by the
bank’s holding company, it can
make up for the deficiencies of
capital from the public sector.

This is a tall order for one
medium-size bank, no matter
how creatively run. Returning
the bank to a condition of high

growth and profitability would be
quite an accomplishment. even
without saving the community.

TOO MANY ideas have been
oversold as city savers. But in a
period when the government
offers no hope and no one has
hope in the government. the
South Shore Bank is one of the
few promising ideas around.

--——-——7 Controversy gushes

from Mobil TV spot

Associated Press Writer

Oil Co. claims in a national
television ad that drilling for oil is
a risky business since only one in
60 wells pays off. But oil industry
statistics indicate results 36
times better.

Data obtained from the
American Petroleum Institute
and from several major oil
companies appears to dispute
Mobil's figures. However. a
spokesman for the oil company
said Mobil would stand by the
television spot.

SOURCES within the Fedr ral
Trade Commission said that at
one time an investigation of the
Mobil ad had been suggested but
said they did not know the
current status of the matter. An
official spokesman for the FTC

would not comment.
The television ad is one of a

number that were produced for
major oil companies during the
worst stages of the energy crisis
to try to explain fuel shortages
and high prices.

Figures compiled by the
American Petroleum Institute
show that of all new wells drilled
worldwide last year, 61.2 per cent
—— or three of every five — was
productive, a record 36 times
better than that claimed in
Mobil’s ad.

Dane Berbach, the advertising
agency that created the Mobil ad,
said the ad did not refer to all
wells dug‘ everywhere in the
world, but only to exploratory
wells. Asked why the ad didn’t
specify exploratory wells, the
executive, Mary McCarthy,

“We couldn‘t explain what an

exploratory well is because the
public wouldn’t understand it.”

Exploratbry drilling,
sometimes called wildcatting, is
searching for oil or gas in new,
untried areas. Production
drilling is the sinking of wells
where reservgs have already
been proved.

THE PUBLIC records of three
oil companies —— including Mobil
—- showed their success rate at
wildcatting considerably higher

than'onein 60, or 1.6 per cent.

Standard Oil of California, the
nation’s fifth largest oil com-
pany, drilled 33 wildcat wells in
the United States last year and
five, or 15 per cent, were
productive. Worldwide, Stan-
dard's success rate was close to

17 per cent.
In 1973, the Exxon Corp., the
world’s largest oil company,

drilled 161 wildcat wells and 23
were commercial successes for a
14.3 per cent success rate.’

MOBIL, the nation’s third
largest oil company, drilled 51
exploratory wells and nine of
them produced for 21.4 per cent
— or better than a on'e-in-five
success rate.

J.A. Gillespie, the Mobil
spokesman, defended the
television ad, saying that both the
CBS and NBC networks had
accepted it on th basis of an API
publication that used the on 9-in-
60 figure.

An API spokesman, J. Speir
Collins, said the figure referred
only to a narrow segment 01 oil

“The figure is way off if you're
talking about all wel‘s drilled
worldwide," he said. “Where the
one~in-6(I figure applies is only for
wildcat drilling in the United
States in brand new fields where
there are no proven oil or gas

reserves ”
