The approach of parity between
the United Nations and Red forces
in Europe is now reducing the
chances of war, John Scott, Time
magazine foreign correspondent,
said Monday in a talk to political
science students.
"The Communist three to two
majority does not warrant aggressive action in Europe," Mr. Scott
said. Scott, who has spent most of
the last twenty years in Russia, de
clared that such an action would
draw heavily on Russian manpower.
France is worried about the growing strength of Germany, the correspondent said. Visionalizing the
invasion of France in 1939 by Germany and the possible plundering
of France by Russia, France has
waveringly stated that she thinks
Germany should be strong enough
to withhold a possible Russian attack and still be too weak to invade
France, he said.
Germany is an important clog in
plan, an attempt
to unify the countries of Europe
against aggression. Mr. Scott emphasized that the question of yesterday was, "Do we need a strong Germany?" Today the question has
changed to, "Do we want a strong
Germany on our side or theirs?"
"Out of the rubble of World War
II 200,000 buildings have been replaced in Berlin," Scott said. "What
accounts for the restoration of Berlin and the revitalization of Germany? The reason is simple . . .
Germans love to work. They are
not working in hopes of a World
War III, but for a Germany that
will inspire other European nations
to admire and even to love Germany. Germany will meet a Russian attack if it comes," he added.
Preceding his talk to political science students, Mr. Scott told journalism students that the foreign
policy of Russia is adolescent in
character. This vast country, which

John B. Wolf
Will Lecture
On Tuesday
Prof. John B. Wolf of the University of Minnesota's Department
of History will deliver the second
Blazer lecture of the year at 8 p.m.
next Tuesday in the Guignol theater
of the Fine Arts building.
"War as a Factor in the Emergence of the Western State" will be
the topic of Prof. Wolf's address.
According to the UK history faculty,
Prof. Wolf is one of the outstanding
young men in the country in the
field of European history.
One of the Minnesota historian's
hooks, "The Emergence of the Great
Powers," is included in the celebrated "Rise of Modern Europe"
series, published by Harper and
Brothers. Among his other books
are "France, 1815 to the Present."
At present Prof. Wolf is at work
on a detailed biography of Louis
XIV, and he spent last year in Paris
on a research Fulbright Fellowship,
gathering material for the biography.
',' ' Three members of the University
Department of History have studied
under Prof. Wolf and have described
him as being a "magnetic speaker,
endowed with enthusiasm and energy."
The lecture series, offered annually to UK students and Lexington townspeople, is made possible by
a fund established by Mr. and Mrs.
Paul Blazer of Ashland. The next
lecture will be given on Dec. 16 by
Dr. Rupert Vance. He will discuss
"Problems of the New South."

The amount SGA appropriated thu; year to the Kentuckian,

biggity when you limit the annual
to the senior class."
Bradley replied, "This year's Kentuckian will be a student annual because it will have more pictures in
it. To put pictures of the freshman,
sophomore, and junior clases in the
annual would cost about six to eight
thousand more dollars. Where can
we get that much money?"
Bradley said each class used to appropriate money to the annual each
year. When SGA was formed it took
over these appropriations and paid
them, he said.
"At one tune, SGA gave us $1,000,"
Bradley said. "Now it has been cut
Enrollment Causes Budget Cut
"The reason the budget has been
cut," Henry Neel answered, "is that
the student enrollment has gone
down, and we had to cut it."
In answer to Holleman 's question,
Anne Downing, business manager of
the Kentuckian, said there are four
paying jobs on the yearbook's staff.
Their total salary is $775, she said.
"I see your stand, and we are glad
to have a chance to talk about it."
the business manager told Assembly
members. "We just resent it because
we work on the annual about 20
hours a week. We had to come back
to school this semester and get last
year's annual out.

"If the off-sover," she continued, well go back
to the old style. Some people don't
want to try anything new."
Pat Moore said it should be put in
the paper that the Kentuckian
wants to get everything cleared op
and to encourage people to buy
more annuals.
"The Kentuckian will be out two
weeks before school is out," Bradley
Directory Committee Praised
Dean Albert D. Kir wan told the
Assembly that the student directory
committee should be complimented
for the speed with which they got
the directory out. Kirwan said this
is the earliest date he knows of that
the directory has been distributed.
George Lawson. president of SGA,
said a new secretary will be elected
at the next meeting to replace the
former secretary, Zoe Parker. James
Kostas was elected by the Assembly
as a representative of the College

Bradley explained that SGA appropriated $375 this year for the
Kentuckian, but estimated expenditures for the yearbook total $18,200.
He pointed out that each student
pays approximately six cents apiece
to the annual.
Before questioning began, Paul
Holleman said the meeting was
called not to criticize the yearbook
but to ask questions and to clear up
a few misunderstandings. He asked
Bradley about increase in prices.
"The price of the annual will remain $5 this year," Bradley said.
"As an example of the increase in
prices, eight years ago printers received 70 cents an hour. They now
receive $2.10 an hour. It casts $49 a
page to be printed, and we charge
only $35 for a page."
The editor said the only way the
Kentuckian can make money is by
reselling annuals which seniors do
not pick up.
Kyian To Is Off-SBradley told Assembly members
that the Kyian will be printed by
method, a new style of
the off-sprinting. He explained that formerly printers arranged pictures and
copy on the page, but under the offset method, the Kentuckian staff
printwill do all this work. Off-sing is cheaper but means more work
for the staff he said.
Pete Carter asked the yearbook
editor why group pictures were being used this year instead of individual shots and why junior pictures have been eliminated from the
"When individual pictures are
used," Bradley said, "you see the
same picture of a person in the annual three to five times. We do all
the work except printing, and we
wouldn't have time to mount all individual pictures.
"It's a senior annual designed for
seniors. Why should we have junior
pictures in it?" Bradley asked.
Few Juniors Buy Annuals
Bradley said about 630 persons
bought annuals last year outside the
senior class. Not over a hundred
juniors bought annuals last year, he

Shively explained that he thought

a pep rally that wasn't a success
would be a "let down after the big

To Trench Girl

Would Give SGA Some Work
Now that the Student Government Association
has "investigated the Kyian. we wonder if the Assembly will get down to business and start working
on some of the campaign promises that were tossed
around so freely last spring.
Students still pay high prices for second, third,

All these planks were advanced by the United
Students the party that won a majority of Assembly seats. If and when SGA decides to act on
these, there are other projects the organization
could take up to keep busy. Things like getting the
semi-offici- al


library to stay open until 10:30 p.m., seeing that
University wages for student lalor are raised to a
decent level, and putting in an improved telephone
system in the men's dorms and barracks.
When they get all this done, Assembly members
holicould see about shortening the
day and adding the extra days to the Thanksgiving
and Easter vacations. That would give students
who live more than 100 miles from Lexington a
chance to go home and return before classes begin.
Potentially SGA could le a powerful organization
a responsible group that could work for the betterment of the University and the welfare of the
students. This potential will never be realized, however, as long as Assembly members meet once every
other week for a casual social hour.


mid-semest- er

It's All So Simple
Activities Fees
Won't Be Changed
Because Of Ban
At the risk of also being lalxled a tool of the administration, we're forced to report to Six Disillusioned Snorts Fans that there will le no rebate
on student activities tickets, nor will there be any
reduction in the fee charge for next semester.
The situation, as it was explained to us, is something like this:
Each student pays a lump sum tuition and fees
into the kitty every semester when he registers.
This money is less tlian half the amount needed to
operate the University, so the State Legislature appropriates another big bundle of loot from tax
money. A portion of the total UK budget is put
into a special fund that gets spread around to a
multitude of offices the library, the health service,
the Kernel, SGA, the Community Concert and Lecture Series and athletics, just to name a few.
Whenever the operating cost for one of these offices is lowered, as we assume will Ix the case this
year for athletics, the extra money goes to one or
more of the other offices that is particularly hard up.
'You can't buck the situation. In fact, it looks like
there wpuldn't even be any justification for trying
to buck it. Right or wrong, the University makes
no promises about what type of entertainment or
"functions" will le presented when it takes your
money for a student activities ticket. We've complained in the past that it's unfair to force students
to buy tickets for "functions" that they may not
want or be able to go to. but we seem to be a voice
crying in the wilderness.
At any rate, don't feel too badly alxxit the money
that you thought was going for basketball. Even if
it were refunded, it'd only Ix? a dollar or two
hardly enough to buy a substitute for the entertainment offered by a dozen or so basketball games.

Credit for putting out what is probably the earliest edition of the Student Directory goes to Jane
Truitt, Charles Negely, and John Robertson, mem-Ixt- s
of the SGA committee in charge of the project,
the University Stenographic Bureau, and the Kernel
Print Shop.
It's nice, for a change, to have addresses and
phone numbers for the first semester printed before the second semester rolls around.

Survey Shows Cost
Of Cutting Classes
Is Painfully High
One of the nation's foremost daily newspapers
recently completed a survey that should make college students feel pretty satisfied with their lot.
The average college graduate earns better than
$5,000 a year, the survey found. This is just about
82,500 above the average annual earnings of the
graduate. Figuring hunger is stronger
than laziness, most of us will work about 35 years.
All this means the sheepskin is worth something
like SS7,500 extra in terms of

downright ridiculous alongside the loot hauled in

On the whole though, us college boys, say the
figures, w ill do all right for ourselves. There's just
one hitch. Again going into the realm of the

Kentucky's Future Promises
To Be As Dark As Her Past
Student attendance at Eric Sevareid's lecture
Monday night showed once again .why Kentucky
is left at the post every time the 4S states line up
for comparison. It also showed vfhy Kentucky is
likely to remain far behind the' field far a good
many years to come.
Traditionally we pin any hopes for the future on
the coming generation. The oldsters have usually
done what they could and the world constantly
hungers for new blood, 'new ideas and vigor. College students, lx'cause they presumably at least
brush against the facts and philosophies that can
make a better world, are generally considered more
valuable than other groups as a potential supply
pool for the ranks of leadership.
Evidently the students at UK aren't interested in
becoming leaders. Monday night afforded merely
one example of the constant effort of students on
this campus to ignore anything that might force
them to use their minds, might induce them to put
