UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY, LEXINGTON

By MIKE IIERNDON
Assistant Managing Editor
UK president Otis Singletary
used a guest appearance before
a professional education fraternity Monday to reiterate and
"make clear" the administration's opinion in regard to the
Free University and the Student
Code.
The luncheon audience of 112
Phi Delta Kappa members included Dr. Harry Barnard, faculty advisor for Free U., and educators from throughout the state.
Through a restatement of previously disclosed views on University student problems, the
speech was obviously aimed at
the segment of the audience directly involved with the two
movements, and at the students.
A show of hands disclosed
that at least half of the assembly represented Institutions other
than Kentucky and were not acquainted with these strictly local

Singletary did have some reconcerning his support.
He said he would back the
athletic program as long as It
"stays within the agreed regulations of the conference and the
Athletics Board, and as long as
they run a good show."
The former vice chancellor at
the University of Texas, Singletary comes from a school with
a rich football tradition. Singletary had a close relationship with

answered the recent threat of
court action by Free U. participants.
Singletary made it quite clear,
however, that the decision to

strictly on a lack of validity
and not due to the presence of
"undesireables" in its midst.

Coach Ray Optimistic
By CHIP HUTCH E SON
Sports Editor
Football and the academic
community, as a rule, haven't
been on the best of terms in the
past few years.
UK has won only eight games
in three years and former president John Oswald expressed
doubt over the relevancy of football and athletics in general. His
of athletics compounded problems with the football program. A lack of University administrative support was
one of the primary reasons cited
for UK's inability to produce a
winner.
Now UK has a new coach,
John Ray, who claims that the
time is coming when the Wild-

changes working in his favor.
One of the chief differences
this year in UK's outlook is the'
backing by the UK administration, especially the president, Dr.
Otis Singletary.
Singletary moved to Kentucky
during the latter part of August.
He had been there only a few
days when he dropped by to see
a UK football practice.
Will Be Friend
"I will be a good friend and
strong supporter of the athletic
program," Singletary said in an
interview. "I've made my Interest, support and good wishes
known."
As far as what his role is in
athletics, Singletary said that the
athletic director woukl run the

Relevant Bio
Controversial
By RON HAWKINS

Kernel Staff Writer

"Many students say their
courses avoid controversy. Unfortunately this has been true
and there is no excuse for it.
The University classroom should
consider issues which arc possibly controversial, not avoid
them," said Dr. William Davis
explaining why the Biology 101
course has delved into topics
previously untouched.
Rather than a detailed study
of algae and the reproductive
functions of the amoeba, the Biology 101 course is dealing with
topics such as "Human Population," "Chemical and Biological Warfare," and "Pesticides."
,Dr. Davis along with Dr. Jerry
Baskin, Dr. Pritam Sabharwal
and Dr. Earle Swim planned the
series of September lectures in an
effort to make the courses "relevant" to the world's problems.
"Relevant Segment" Tentative
The lecture on human population was an attempt to make
the student aware of the many
serious and touchy problems in
that realm.
Brought up in the lecture was
the problem of feeding starving
people or allowing them to die,
and thus have no more children.
Also discussed were mandatory use of birth control pills
and sterilization. The lecture
ended with questions flying back
and forth between the lecturer
and the students.
"These lectures have been entirely experimental," said Dr.
Davis. He added that the future
of the "relevant" segment of the
course depended upon student reaction. The remaining lecture
topics in this segment include:
"Water Pollution and Conservation," "Air Pollution," and
"Smoking and Health."

* Student Dilemma; Nonexistent Glasses
As the fall semester begins to
settle into a routine, preliminary
work has already begun for the
planning of class schedules for the
spring semester. This semester's
experience has shown that a number of major changes need to be
made before the pre-- i egistration
period. At this time we offer our
humble suggestions as to how this
process can be improved.
In an institution as thoroughly
administrated as ours, there is no
excuse for the annual hangups experienced by thousands of students
who register for classes they need,
only to find them closed when the
semester begins. The students then
are forced to endure the drop-ad- d
process and all other forms of torture to get their requirements.
Because of late class cancella

tions some students are forced to
attend the University an extra semester beyond the normal time.
For this extreme occurance there
can certainly be no excuse.
When a student registers in a
class he should be guaranteed the
opportunity to participate in that
class during the semester. If his

preferred time is not available it is
the registrar's obligation to inform
him of other class possibilities.
Only in the most unusual cases
should it be impossible for the
student to take his desired class.
There are classes for which the
demand is so great the University
must strictly limit enrollment. This

problem is understandable, but one
must question whether the
sity has done all it can to alleviate
the problem. When the same class
is crowded semester after semester,
why can't additional instructors be
hired to take care of the overflow?
Why is it the case that the most
popular classes in many departments limit their enrollment to
majors of that department? Is it
necessary that many students must
be denied an opportunity that a
select few have?
With the nightmare of
approaching one can only
some of these problems have
hope
been ironed out. Perhaps this is the
semester. At any rate, our college
experience is too short and eventful
to have to be spent in compensating
for administrative oversights.

Kernel Forum: the readers write
USAC vs. Kernel
To the Editor of the Kernel:

The University Student Advisory Committee has been not infrequently criticized,
both implicitly and explicitly, by the
Kernel for the committee's press policy.
It is time for the other side of the story
to be presented.
There are two basic reasons for USAC's
restrictions on Kernel coverage: (1) The
nature of USAC's role at UK and (2) the
nature of Kernel "press coverage."
The nature of USAC's role at UK
involves frank expression of opinion by
committee members so that explicit proposals to improve UK may be developed
or faculty or administration officials advised. To encourage discussion of
proposals or confidential advice
'
can only impair the effectiveness of USAC.
This rationale is much the same as that
for keeping the proceedings of the convention in which the U.S. Constitution was
written secret until its work was completed. When the proposals are fully laid
out or the advice is of a
nature, USAC has been and will continue
to be responsive to any and all questions
or suggested amendments.
This year the committee decided to
open the end of each session to the press
the minutes will be read and questions
answered by the committee. The results
of this policy for our first scheduled
meeting highlight the second reason. This
was done in spite of the fact that a
wholly open meeting at the first of last
year resulted in gross misquotation of
committee members by the Kernel. This
year the Kernel continued its policy of
distortion, reporting that the USAC session was 'tailed for the purpose of discussing the Free University.' However,
this was not at all the case. In fact, the
Kernel reporter received a 'No' answer to
his query: 'Was the Free University discussed?'
It is beyond our comprehension why
the Kernel would continually distort its
d

articles. Because such distortion significantly undermines the confidence in USAC
on the part of those with whom the committee must work, the Kernel policy forces
us to adopt a somewhat restrictive press
policy. For unknown reasons, the Kernel
causes the very policy it detests.
We believe USAC has helped significantly in improving UK from the students'
standpoint. Our report supports that statement. We do not think that the contributions USAC can make toward bettering UK
should be sacrificed to the distortion which
the Kernel chooses to practice.

The Assembly passed a resolution expressing its disapproval of the new Code
of Student Conduct, its grave disappointment in the failure of the Board to include some of the recommendations of the
University Senate in the new Code, and
its disapproval of the decision of the Board
to consider the document without first
submitting it to the University Senate
and Student Government for their approval.
