Students Protest Rent

A committee from Shawneetown will protest to
Gov. Chandler aboilt proposed rent hikes for the
new Cooperstown apartments. A six member delegation was elected Tuesday night at a married stu-

dents' meeting in the Shawneetown recreation hall.
Arthur Brooks Jr.. chairman of the protest group,
said that the rates for the new apartments had been
unofficially set at $60 a month for one bedroom
apartments and $70 a month for two bedroom
apartments. This is approximately twice as much
as the present prices.
The vote to send a delegation to protest personally
to Gov. Chandler was unanimous. Those chosen to
see the governor were Brooks. Gordon It. Demerson.
James A. Moore, W. C. Beggs, Gail A. Beggs, and
James Belcher.
Brooks said the grpup had no definite plan to sub

mit to the governor, but would explain their situation to him. The chairman said the new prices
were "unacceptable" to the Shawneetown residents,
and if they were enforced some students would have
to drop out of school.
One veteran commented that "somebody should
be reminded that the married veteran makes $135
a month and with a kid, only $160."
Dean of Men Leslie L. Martin said Wednesday
that the University had no other choice but to
charge higher rents. The Dean explained that
state and federal building codes had upped the construction costs to a point where the University had
to charge higher prices to meet repayments on the
loan floated to finance the project.

buildings had been condemned by the state fire

Alfreda, composing herself, went to answer it. "Won't you come

THE KENTUCKY KERNEL. Friday. Aoril 27. IP.Ifi

Hark Talk

Student Protest
Tlic married students living at Shawnee-tow- n
arc justifiably upset about the rent that
will be charged for the new Cooperstown
apartments. Unofficial figures place the

amount at between $G0 and $70 a month.
This is approximately twice as much as the
students are npw paying at Shawneetown.
The higher Tent will drastically affect
many of the 184 families living in Shawneetown. Most of them have at least one child,
some of them two or three. An added expense of $30 or $35 a month would strain
their already thin budgets to the breaking
point. Several of them would have to drop
out of school.
This is extremely bad, but the story is not
altogether one sided. When the old Cooperstown project and Shawneetown were condemned by the State Fire Marshall the University was faced with the problem of either
providing housing for the majority of the
married students or none of them. Out of
the 1,200 married students attending UK
only 200 live in Shawneetown. The University made the logical choice and the new
project will greatly benefit the 1,000 students
who are at present paying high rent out in
Because of state and federal building
codes the University had to abide by certain
minimum standards when they built the
apartments. Even if the University wanted

to they couldn't build apartments similar to
the ones npw at Shawneetown. The added
construction cost is part of the reason the
rent will be higher.
Also state law prohibits using state funds
to erect housing for a special group such as
University students. The money for the
project had to be raised through a bond issue. A set amount must be paid regularly

to the bonding company until the debt is
rcsired. This is the other reason why the
rent will be higher.
However, the University will charge the
students, the lowest possible rate. The rent
will barely cover the loan payments. The
University will definitely not make a profit
on the new apartments.
But the University has made one serious
mistake. It has done nothing for the Shawneetown residents who cannot allord the
higher rent. Legally the University is not
responsible for the financial problems or its
students, but morallv it should see that these
financially injured students are cared for.
It seems reasonable to believe that there
is some University or state fund that can
help these students. It is absolutely unfair
and undemocratic that .they should be punished for something they had no control
over. After all, trying to wprk their way
through college has been their onlv mistake.

Term Papers
Two weeks ago The Kernel printed an
editorial entitled "Idiot Profs." Thus started
a long series of protests.
As it was hoped its very title would suggest, the editorial was written as a mildly
humorous satire. Hut it appears that many
readers thought the editorial neither humorous nor satiristic.
Letters, one of which is printed in this
issue, have poured in. Professors have attacked the editorial in their class rooms.
Among other things, The Kernel has been
accused of "bad taste."
Whether or not professors assign term
papers to their students, The Kernel certainly does not believe them to be idiots.
Humorists and cartoonists of late have pictured the college professor as a demented
menace, after a fashion of the stereotyped
picture of the "dumb, green freshman."
But many persons obviously did not understand that The Kernel was simply using
a broad, humorous stereotype of the college
professor in the editorial.
While The Kernel apologizes for any misrepresentation or harm done to UK professors, it can not and will not deny that term

papers are being over-rateTerm papers at UK have been misused to
the degree that they are indeed a legitimate
topic of editorial contention. While some
professors assign these tasks in good faitl,
it has become apparent that many term
papers are required for questionable academic reasons.
' One can not argue that in some courses a
term paper is a beneficial way of "conceiving, evaluating, organizing, and presenting
ideas." But one can contend that a term
paper should never be assigned if the professor does not tell his students what is expected and what will be accomplished.
No student should be condemned because
lie doubts the value of the work hi' is undertaking. Free thought should never be subjected to the ritual of "do or die."
And so it is unfortunate that too many
professors at UK require term papers, but
never bother to tie in this important work
with the education at hand. A term paper
in some courses seems incongruous with
what what is being taught; possibly this
would not be so if the professor outlined his
reasons for assigning them.

Then, too, some professors use term papers
for their own use. Fortunately tin's situation
is rare, but there should never be the doubt
that a student's work is being prostitutecHor
personal gain of the professor. One instructor this year told a student that' he was assigning term papers for the express purpose
of getting material for future class lectures.
Far too many term papers which in the
full sense of the word should represent research and work done throughout the semesterare never critiqued by the professor.
That is why many UK students "put off.
term papers to the last minute.
If more professors critiqued term papers
students would not only benefit educationally, but would also lose their skepticism of
the value of the papers themselves.
Because term papers at UK are being required, in many cases, without thorough instruction beforehand, without being married
to the subject taught, and without
The Kernel believes that they are
being over-rateAnd so "Idiot Profs," though a misunderstood editorial, was one that deserved being
oil an editorial page. The topic was not
brought to The Kernels attention by "persons not interested in becoming educated,"
but through talk of those who dare to doubt
unexplained ddgma.
As long as this type of students exist, then
The Kernel will voice their opinions.

Blasts Workshop
Dear Sir,
After having read the product of
"The Workshop" in last week's
Kernel, and realizing through experience the steps that one must
take to reach both greek and Independent students through Kernel
publications, I deem it necessary
that I write this letter.
In defense of the newly formed
Students Party, I wish to reiterate and refute some comments
presented by the "Old Propieter"
and present the real reasons for
the formation of the Students
It is an accepted student agreement that the present student government of the UK campus is
not what it should be, or could be,
