New Governor Pledges


1 'Better Opportunities'

Kernel Staff Writer


The new dimension of public service as a family heritage
adds a measure of prideful distinction to the inauguration if
Edward T. Breathitt Jr., as Governor of the Commonwealth
of Kentucky.
Pomp and pageantry of the occasion, of course, remain true to
the traditions of 171 years of statehood. The winners celebrate, the
losers congratulate. There are the shouts of exultation, the pantomimes of parade, the food a match for hearty appetites, the drink

a complement to exuberant spirits, the music an inspiration for dancing feet.
But there hovers over this gala occasion of Dec. 10, 19.53, an
aura of historic public service by the family surnamed Breathitt that
somehow connotes a state come of age. It plumbs a new depth to the
democracy upon which our system rests. It calibrates new breadth
to the politics that is catalytic agent to the process of
in a sovereign state of a free republic.
The contribution of this famly to the commonwealth of Kentucky began in September, 183?, when John Breathitt was inaugurated Governor under Inauguration Elm on grounds of the Old State-hous- e.
He was the uncle many times removed, of the Gov. Breathitt
now assuming office.
It was for the first Gov. Breathitt that Breathitt County was
named. George Breathitt, his brother, was private secretary to President Andrew Jackson. These first Bieathitts were Democrats.
But James Breathitt Sr., the incoming Governor's grandfather,
was a Republican. As such, he was elected attorney general in 1907
and served 1907-1- 1 in the Republican administration of Gov. Augustus E. Wilson.
Next in succession came the Democrat, James Breathitt Jr., uncle
to the new Governor. He was elected lieutenant governor in 1927 and
served 1927-3- 1 in the administration headed by Gov. Flem D. Sampson, a Republican. This Breathitt was nominated for governor in the
convention of 1931, but lost out to Gov. Ruby Laffoon.
Nor is the latest in line a neophyte in public service. Gov. Breathitt, 39 and a lawyer, lias behind him three terms in the House of
Representatives, service In the cabinet of Gov. Bert T. Combs, and
on the bench of Public Service Commission. He long has been an
articulate advocate of constitutional reform and a leader in civic
The public service of Harry Lee Waterfield, 52, the incoming lieutenant governor, is no less distinguished because it spans only the
relatively brief time of his own generation. He has served six terms
in the House of Representatives, two of them as Speaker. He was
headed by Gov.
lieutenant governor in the administration of 1955-5Albert B. Chandler. He was defeated for governor in the Democratic
primaries of 1947 and 1959. He has achieved noteworthy business success in the fields of farming, livestock, publishing, and insurance.
And so we have at this place and in this time the blending of

Breathitt's inaugural address, yesterday.


Gov. Edward T. Breathitt

This Week
Two more lectures are
scheduled for this last week
of formal classes and programs:
Today, Dr. II. Rawling
president of the Medical
College of South Carolina, will
speak on "Experimental and Environmental Factors Bearing on
Carcinoma of the Cervix." The
lecture, sponsored by the Cancer
Teaching Committee, will be at
8 p.m. in Room IWN2G3 of the
Medical Center.
Friday, Dr. Thomas D. Clark,
chairman of the History Department, will be at the Faculty Club
between 4 and 5 p.m., to describe
his experiences in Washington
following the assassination
President Kennedy. Dr. Clark's
talk will concern an inside view
o fthe government's reaction and
adjustment to the national disaster at that time.

The address was delivered to
an estimated crowd of 50,000 people after a three hour parade
celebrating the inauguration.
Gov. Breathitt dedicated his
to the spirit of
John F. Kennedy. He said that
the martyred president had left
as a heritage a spirit of concern
for the individual, detachment
from self, and a dedication to
able leadership, and Gov. Breathitt said, "Let us today, undergo
a humble baptism in that spirit."
Breathitt said his hope for a
better opportunity was for all
city or country,
rich or poor, black or white.
Education was the first topic
of eminent concern that the governor alluded to. "Kentucky cannot afford to halt or slow down
educational progress," he said.
Gov. Breathitt praised the educational progress made under the
Combs administration,
but reminded his audience that Kenstill faced problems in edutucky
cational development. "The sheer
pressure of numbers is overwhelming," he said, "and we must
also insure the growing quality
of instruction."
Turning to the economy, Gov.
Breathitt said the promise of
75,000 new jobs and a billion dollar economy were serious objectives of his administration.
He pointed to Eastern Kentucky as one of the great problem
areas of the state. He reassured
Kentucky that he was certain
President Johnson would make
the visit to Kentucky planned by
John Kennedy in conjunction
with the Appalaehia Regional
Development Commission, a federal program for the redevelop

ment of the southern Appalachian Mountain regions.
Gov. Breathitt's final promise
was to watch carefully over the
people's financial trust. He said,
he realized that every dollar mismanaged in Frankfort was a dollar that could not be used to
improve education, roads. Jobs,
and welfare.
"You will get a dollars worth,
of service for every dollar spent."
he promised, "or some heads will

the future. In this manner only
Is there virtue in experience."
Lt. Gov. Waterfield took his
first position in the state legislature in 1937, and is the second
man to have held the office of
lieutenant governor twice.
He said that he had enjoyed
serving under most of the past
governors represented at the inauguration. "I have supported
them and I have opposed them
according to my convictions." ha
said, "but I am a part of all the

Johnson's address to Congress,
Lt. Gov. Waterfield concluded
with, "I will do my best, that
is all I can do, I ask your help
and God's."
"Thank you for allowing me to
be your governor," was the simple
end with which retiring governor
Bert Combs concluded his administration.

Christmas Shopping Hints
For Your Favorite Man
Have you braved the crowds on
Main Street yet? If you have, do
you feci like giving up and giving
empty packages this year?
It's always hard to buy the
right Rifts, especially when it
involves the men in your life.
There are few rcaT.y new an:l
different things o.ie can give
this year, but I thought for
thoe cf you who Just couldn't
think of a thing this mi;;ht te of
tome help.
There is one thing you should
remember, few men ever like the
ties that women buy for them.
After all, those pale blue cnes
with the cute little white spots
Just don't appeal to moct men.
And boo?s are nice, provided they
pertain to something they are
interested in. What boy would be
thrilled on Christmas morning
with a book on Scuba Diving
when he can't swim, unless it's a
gentle hint from his lady love
to go jump in the lake.
But back to the unoriginal. The
best gifts to give are sweaters.
They are usually welcome and
like more women, men can always use another sweater especially if it is Perry Como style.
There are other things to give:
a cigarette lighter with his initials on it, a key chain, wallet,
belt, gloves, scarves, shirts, and
the thousand and one items
lound at the local haberdasher's
and department store mcutiques.
There are several nev; entries
In the field of male type gifts.

Social Activities
The following men were recently initiated into the Sigma
Chi: Frank Brockardt, Bobby
Dickinson, Jay Durie, Charlie
Fields, Carl Lay, Bob Measle,
Jim Miller, Don Spangler. Bud
Allen VanOveibeke,
and Dick Wildt.


The college of Nursing will
have a Christmas banquet at 6:15
p.m. tomorrow in the Medical
Center Cafeteria. A'.l nursing
students and faculty members
are invited.

One of the nicest is a battery-powere- d
shoe shiner and buffer.
This handy gift is inexpensive
and most men ned something of
this sort. Haven't you noticed the
lii: ty shoes around here?
Another different item is available at loeal jewelry stores. It is
a sterling silver drink mit.er. key
cha:n sized. It looks like a pocket
knife and has three blades, one
with muller, one with a spoon,
and the thud a little pick. This
is a new addition to the collection of things fcr the man who
has everything.
the same lines and
slightly more expensive is the
imitation scotcli bottle that has
a built-i- n
transistor radio. There
is also a dog on the market that
has a radio built into it.
Less expensive and just as
practical are the sets of blazer
buttons with the fraternity crest
on them. There are all kindis of
tie tacks and recognition pijfis.
These are the usual run oj the-mil- l
gifts, as I've said, so jheie
aie a few that are different to

say the least. Give him a pewter
mug with his initials in Old English. Or a silver cigarette case,
or expersive cuff links for the
fiench cufT shirt he doesn't own.
Pah down to the chu"yist and
pick up so;ne pep pill:,, or a crying towel, of ruor blades. These
should be handy hems for that



If you real'y wniit to make his
Christinas bri'.'.hl and shiny how
Phil it a new car like a Jaauar
XKE or an Austin I'ealy 30U0. in
a do it yourself kit form for $3.93.
He'll kill vou. Not realiv, but they
say it's the thought that counts.
Or give him a bushel of mistletoe, a branch at a time.
The nicest gift from the standpoint of time and TLC is a hand-kn- it
This gift takes
hours to make and no girl is
going to put that much time and
energy into a thins: unless she
really cares about the man she's
knitting it for.
Hope these hints have been of
some help, happy shopping!

* Is Chivalry Dead?
"Where have all the gentlemen gone?
Gone forever, nigh every one.
Oh when will they return?
Oh ivhcn iv ill they return?"
This is the age of missiles and moonshots; of running here and rushing
there; of punching clocks ami pushing buttons. This is the age in which one
goes through life at a pace more hectic than that of a highly tuned sports car.
This is the age which also gave women equal rights: job opportunities,
voting privileges, voiced opinions, and practically anything else one would
consider a "right." However, it appears that when our grandmothers won their
equality, they (in theory) began a process which has nearly eradicated masculine respect for their granddaughters.
Where have all the gentlemen gone? Are they so caught in the mad rush,
clamoring for the peak of society's pole, that common courtesies and manners
appear to them only as blurs of the past?
Granted today's women may not appear as feminine as their
but appearances are not specific grounds for judgment; after all,
femininity cannot be seen--. Femininity is a quality a quality one may glimpse
from a gesture, but a quality that is never fully seen.
A hundred years ago a woman was expected to be no more than a woman.
She was groomed to be a fine lady. She was educated in the arts; she was
she was a companion and a comforter. Her
witty, warm, and
sole duty in life was to be a loving, understanding wife, and a bearer and
rearer of children. The example of such a woman is the stereotype "Southern
War South.
Belle" of the
Today's women no longer have time to lounge through the day. Career
girls put in an eight hour clay; housewives and mothers are on duty 24 hours;
coeds attend classes, "donnkeep,' and participate in numerous activities. These
women cannot always be
calm, and collected. Their tensions
build up and eventually burst forth. Docs this make them less feminine?
What makes a woman less feminine, and certainly fell less feminine, is
the lack of respect paid to her by the males she works with, goes to school
with, or the ones she passes on the street.
What has happened to door opening? Too many girls on campus get
doors practically slammed in their faces without the same thing happening
elsewhere. Where has the man gone who held a woman's coat while she put
it on, who pulled out her chair before they sat down to eat, who held her
elbow as they went down steps, who tipped his hat in passing, who gave her
bis seat in a crowded room or bus? What has happened to the male who
walked on the side of the street parallel to the traffic? You would think that
men had intentions of having their female companions literally "run down."
Where is the man who never used profane language in the presence of a
woman, who would never have mentioned a smutty thing in her presence?
Where is the man who respected a woman for what she was? Where is the
man who will respect today's woman in the same way?
Xo, today's woman is not looking for the chivalry so commonly associated with courtesy and respect. Rather, she is looking for courtesies which
reflect that she is respected. Perhaps this is too much to hope for in this day
of "well she's as good as I am, let her do it by herself."
After all, a womans talents and abilities can make her a mans equal,
but it takes respect to make her feel like a woman which is what she really is.
