Housing study recommends construction of new units

Kernel Staff Writer

A University housing feasibility
study has recommended that the
University construct at least 200
units of twobedroom housing in the
Shawnteetown area, with at least 50
units reserved for married students.

The 35-page study was recently
completed at the request of Jack
Blanton, vice president for business

affairs. It was conducted by a five—
member panel of University of-
t'icia b. That panel consisted of: G.
J. Ruschell, assistant vice president
for business affairs, Robert
Blakeman, director of auxiliary
services, Larry Ivy, Jean Lindley,
acting director of housing. and
Jeanne Garvey, director of
management services for business

In doing the study, the panel

examined estimates of growth
potential for UK and the outlook for
the surrounding community.

Part of the function of the com-
mittee was to examine the
enrollment possibilities at UK in
determining whether it could afford
additional housing. They were also
to corsider the financial position of
the University, and its effect on
housing affordability.

In gathering information, the

panel consulted University per-
sonnel, administrative personnel,
officials of other universities and
employes of local and state planning

In assembling its report, the panel
examined predicted enrollment,
community growth, national trends
and expansioncosts.

The panel found that the
University had accommodations for
4,735 undergraduates, which ac-

Three major mayoral candidates
call for extensive traffic changes

While they’re waiting forever to

make a left turn, Lexington
motorists may find some solace in
knowing they’re experiencing
perhaps the number one political
issue in Fayette County: traffic.

Politicians and others have
frequently lamented poor planning
in Lexington while praising the
city’s prosperity and rapid growth
that have contributed to it.

This year, though, traffic
congestion and city planning will
have added importance because a
new mayor will be elected.

All three major candidates are
establishing positions calling for
extensive traffic alterations and a
comprehensive growth plan, which
is required by state law in 1978.

Mayor Foster Pettit, who is not
ninning for reelection, and Vice
Mayu‘ Scotty Baesler have proposed
the creation of a citizens’ task force
to assist the Urban County Council in

Under their proposal, the two
groups would work with one of the
nation’s leading urban planners
hired by the city. Professor Robert
Freilich, of the University of
Missouri law school, was
specifically mentioned by Pettit and
Baesler, who is a candidate for

The other principal candidates,
James Amato and Joe Graves, have
emphasized traffic problems in their
early campaigning. Graves has

Press partly to blame

Nugent cites African problems

Kernel Staff Writer

John Peer Nugent, former African
correspondent for Newsweek
magazine, told a crowd of about 150
in Memorial Coliseum Tuesday
night that the American press is
partly to blame for the current
political tension in Southern Africa.

“The American press has tried to
create the image that what the
blacks in Africa want is to have
independence without the
whites...that is not what they want,”
he said.

Calling the black leaders
“pragmatists,” Nugent said, “they
know they can’t do it on their wn
now; they know that they are going
to need assistance at first.”

Nugent also said he feels sure if
white Rhodesiam could “see their
way to a compromise," the black
leaders would recognize that “they

do need to keep the Europeans

Nugent traced the origins of the
current antipathies on the dark
continent to the start of the colonial
period. The whites, he said, first
settled in Rhodesia and South Africa
in the 1600‘s, and they see them-
selves as settlers in that land.

“They have no homeland to go to,"

, he said, “and they have developed

the attitude that they will remain
even unto death. They feel that they
are under the guns: the guns of

Nugent does not defend the “white
Africans" categorically, however.
Ile recounted several incidents
which he felt illustrated “the kinds
of things the white mentality can do

In the early 1960's, he said, the
African territory of Guinea told its
French colon'nts that it no longer
wanted colonial leadership. In

criticized the present administration
for ignoring practical concerns and
has pledged to replace traffic
engineer Joe Heidenreich.

Amato promises extensive
changes such as re-aligning lanes
and adjustinglights, and claims that
he was interested in traffic concerns
before his opponents, during his
unsuccessful mayoral bid in 1973.

In their proposal, Pettit and
Baesler identified major outgoing
roads——such as Versailles and
NicholasvilleH—as being so clut-
tered with driveways and minor
roads that they are hazardous.

New Circle Road, they said,
frequently causes traffic jams
because it is overdeveloped and
connected with other clogged streets

retaliation, French officials
destroyed the scholastic records of
the nation‘s top students, thereby
depleting the Guinea’s reserve of
accredited academicians and

Nugent attributed the current
problems in black-led nations to
“black leaders trying to emulate
their former white leaders. The
gentlemen running these countries,"
he said, “now presume that the way
to do things is to start moving their
money to a bank account in Swit-
zerland and to buy a Mercedes-

The name Mercedes-Benz has lent
itself to a new word in the African
vemauilar. The lower classes of
African society have created a name
for the ruling white “tribe." They
call them “Wa-BENZ-i."

There has been a reduction of
tension in Africa in recent years,
according to Nugent.

Baesler said in an interview
yesterday that the selection of the
citizens’ committee is nearly
complete. The group is to represent
diverse interests from all areas of
Lexington-Fa yette County, interests
often at odds in court and in

According to Dr. William Lyons,
8th district councilman, Freilich is
one of the most competent urban
planners in the nation, and hiring
him or “someone like him” to
coordinate Lexington’s growth, is a
step that should be taken.

Lyons said Freilich could especially

counted for 85 per cent of the total
student population. According to the
report, there are 15,000 students in
need of off-campus housing.

Part of the study was devoted to a
comparison of UK’s housing
situation with that of other
univerities. It was found that the
problems facing UK were also
facing other institutions around the

Itwas found that the major area of
housing shortage was that of
married or graduate students. All of
the schools contacted agreed that
this shortage represented a trend;
they were unanimous in predicting
continued increase in this area.

The panel concluded that; a)
dormitory life was a constructive
aspect of the ‘collegiate learning
experience’ b) the current trend
toward increased need for student
housing would hold up through the

next decade, c) the increased need
for student off-campus housing
would put a strain on the already-
weakened city housing market, d)
this strain will result in increased
pressure on the administration, and
that e) the University will have to
borrow money to meet construction

In deference to these conclusions,
the panel recommended that the
Shawneetown-area housing project
be undertaken; and that funds for
the exparsion be raised by the sale
of bonds.

The committee also concluded
that the best type of housing would
be apartment-type housing. The
reason for this, they said, was to
insure easy dispensation in case of
their becoming unneccessary, and
reduced stress on the Lexington
housing market.

Last week I said I wanted to talk
about the spirit of inanana
«pronounced mahn-yah-nah) and
how it‘s so prevalent in Mexico and
scarce in the United States.

Mariana literally means
"ton‘orrow." and the spirit of
n anana genera lly entails a relaxed,
cnsygoing way of life, as in “I‘ll do
it ‘n :nmna,‘ not today.”

The {7.8. wouldn't be in the
t‘L'OlllHl‘lt'. position it's in today if its
n ainstrt-an' life philosophy were the
spirit of nznnana. In simplistic
terms. this country‘s growth has
been based on the rock of hand work
and efficiency and the theory that if
you build a better mousetrap, the
world will beat a path to your door.





Not so ill Mexico. lts growth,
hampered by the presence of
European colonialism until the final
cxpulsion of France in 1867, has been
built on the shifting sands of manana

ritual of siesta, which is still prac-

ticed). if and when a better

dmic “ anana. inanana“ and not
today. if ever.
Missing spirit

The upshot of this state of affairs
is that while the US. has gained in
affluence, it has missed out on the
spirit of n'nnana. Conversely, while
the Mexicans seem more relaxed
and happy than us in their way of
life, they‘ve sacrificed the
satisfaction find easiness of the
:: ntcrial comforts to which we‘ve
becontc accustomed in this country.

I could ramble on and on about the
nature of life here compared to that
of the slower-paced Mexico, but I
don‘t really feel qualified. A lot of
n y beliefs are already ingrained to
the point that my own interpretation
of them would be self-corruptive.

My tlilt-n'na was solved with the
help of. bclicvc it or not, Sue Wylie of
Wit-1X television. Ms. Wylie was on
the tube earlier this week asking
some kick in their early teens the

question, “What do you think it will
be like when you‘re grown up?"

One of the youngsters replied,
“Wcll, it‘ll be really crowded with
people, and uh, pricesjll be really

To which Ills. Wylie purred, “You

The kid answered matter-0f-
iactly. “Nope."

Tools of life'

Which brings me to the issue of
this article. Is the environment in
which we bring up today's
youngsters one in which any of
several possible future disasters
have become a fact of life to them?
Will these new “facts of life”
produce a spirit of manana that
really amounts to giving up on the
light. to correct the mistakes of those
who have preceded us? Conversely.
will the pressures of such a society
it akc it possible for them to ever
cnjoy a life that is relatively

In order to explore the question, I
asked Chas Main, a recent graduate
of Henry Clay High School and a
Kcrncl reporter, to convene several
seniors from Henry Clay so that I
could talk to them about these

bright and articulate seniors from
the school—Bill Bastin, Matt

llanks, Jane Germond, Lisa Ernst
and Tom Clark.

We covered the gamut of topics,
from their on trance into adolescence
in the ll‘ldSt of the Vietnam war to
the advcntof the energy crisis; from
high government corruption to
hyper-vandalism like dumping five
gallon buckets of tar on cars (as
happened here in Lexington a couple
of years ago); from the selfishness
and excesses of Americans to the
brashncs and excesses of the rock
group Kiss.

Winds of change

There are winds of change flowing
among these kids. Some of them are
disturbing, some are not. One of the
i: ost disturbing was that they seem
to feel that Americans are too

the desire of young Americans to

A big one

Today (Jan. 18) saw the
ratification of the Equal Rights
Amendment (ERA) by the In'diana
legislature. Three states to go!
Rumor has led it for several months
that Jimmy Carter has promised to
get the ERA ratified in three states
this year if women can win the
fourth, although no one is quite sure
why he can’t support it in all four.

At any rate, there can be no
question but that this victory is due
to the action of women who fought
very hard for it. The Indiana
Coalition worked very hard to elect
representatives and senators
sympathetic to the ERA, and as a
result wu'e successful in winning at
least the passive support of a slender
majority in both houses.

Activists who have abandoned this
strategy in favor of an independent
women’s movement built support
for the ERA with a letter and
telegram campaign, a door-to-door
caravan, and a rally, all called by
Indiana or Indianapolis N.O.W.
t National ()rganinition for Women).

Despite the weather-—the con-
tirgent sent by the Campus ERA
Alliance was forced to turn back—
the Jan. 9 rally drew 600 supporters
who came from as far away as
Pennsylvania and Wisconsin to
march through sub-zero tem-
peratures and eight inches of snow.
(The local press, radio and TV
stations gave prominent coverageto
the rally.) Supptrt for the ERA was
also demonstrated by the 800 people
who packed the subcommittee
hearings and those who testified for
the ERA (hiring the week before
Jan. 9. '

of the struggle we seem to be finding
the right combination of tactics.

I would like to complain about Joe
Kemp‘s Jan. 18 article about the
Kentucky-Florida basketball game.
In his article, Kemp attempted to
describe what happened in the last
seven seconds.

In dcscribin g the last second steal
by Jay Shidler, Kemp leaves the
impression that there was some
qutstion whether or not Shidler was
fouled before he shot. This was not
the case. The official called the foul
when Shidler was at midcourt, but
bcca use of the crowd's noise, Shidler
did not hear the whistle and drove to
the basket for a lay-up.

Kemp‘s writing was very
n islcading. calling Shidler‘s shot
“the apparent winning goal," and
saying that “the officials ruled that
Shidler was fouled before the sho .”
This left the impression that the
officials node a bad call. They did

Kemp went on to tell of Kentucky’s
losing an eight point lead in the first
half and going to the locker room
when “thc Gators led 35-34 at the
half, inducing broadcaster Cawood
Ltdford to say, ‘Oh, my God.”
l.cdford did say “Oh, my God" butit
had nothing to do with Kentucky

What really happened was that on
