cancellation of classes

cam-puswi- de

Oct. 15.

Dr. Ogletree affirmed that
class cancellation must come
through faculty senate action,
but declined to have the executive committee introduce a cancellation motion.
Chairman Ogletree, according to committee sources, said he
personally endorsed the moratorium program if it doesn't disrupt classes.
A resolution is expected to be
introduced at the University Senate meeting on Monday proposing
that the senate endorse the Moratorium program and leave to each
professor the decision of class
cancellation, discussion, or indifference to the program. '
Accord! ng to Karen Schroeder,
a committee member, 37 universities around the nation have
cancelled all classes on the day
of the moratorium.
UK Program
At UK the program will start
at 10 a.m. and run throughout
most of the day.
For the formal program here,
the committee has secured five
speakers. Prof. Robert Sedler of
the UK Law College will speak
on "Nixon's War" and the history of war. Dr. Susan Drysdale,
Department of Sociology, will
discuss "Social Problems as Related to the War."
Joseph Mulloy, former Appalachian Volunteer and draft
will speak on 'The Draft."
Philosophy graduate student
Ralph Lumas is to talk about his
experiences in the Army, and Dr.
Joseph Cardner, of the English
department, has not yet announced a topic.
Twice during the day the
"War Came," a British Broadmovie
casting
about World War III. will be
shown. Folk singers and poetry
readings will be presented also.
Demonstrations
Parade permits were secured
Wednesday from local authorities for planned marches from
the campus to the Fayette County
Courthouse.
There will be two marches
converging on the courthouse one
from UK and the other from
the Transylvania University campus. The marches are scheduled
to begin at 3 p.m.

The only identity and status and meaning
she will have is through her husband.
And what about after the wedding?
Suddenly she finds that four years of
college were for nothing. (Six semesters
of French don't help one do dishes).
Staying up all' night cranking out term
papers, struggling hours on end to finally
understand that physics all for nought;
We begin to realize the only meaning
college has for a female is to find "Mr.
Right." Unless you have typing skills or
a teaching certificate, you might as well
forget trying to find a job. But society
replies, "Things are better than ever"
for the woman. It's now acceptable for a
married woman to have a job." But all
the while in subtle ways we are told
"The woman's place is in the home."
There are some jobs open because it may
be necessary for a woman to work to put
her husband through school or help while
he is getting started in his job that is
when she's not washing, cooking, cleaning, blostering his ego and being beautiful. Anyway, someone has to fill the
menial, tedious jobs while the men are
busy with the important ones. And to
add injury to insult, she is paid less for
doing the same job with the same amount
of education and skill as a man!
Is the man to blame for everything?

He is no more to blame than we are for
accpeting it as the "way things are."
The man has a role he must play as well
and is viewed with suspect if he deviates
from it. Usually it is expected that he will
eventually bear the burden of the financial responsibility and to do so he must
bear also the strain of constant competition.
Marriage or any form of union between
two people should be a fulfilling experience of mutual emotional support as well
as mutual sharing of the income mainand
tenance,
tasks. Both people should be individuals
who are seeking to develop their talents
and individuality equally without forcing
one of the partners to sacrifice her intellect, creativity, and identity to serve
the other.
Let's stop letting the merchants, the
corporations, the TV commercials, and
"tradition" program us into a situation,
where our role is chosen for us where
our status is determined at birth by virtue of our sex. Let's stop being objects
which are judged on bosom-shap- e
rather
than depth of character. Let's stop trying
to be pretty "things" to be admired,
but not to be taken seriously. Let's make
relationmarriage and the
ship a more human experience.

Kernel Forum: the readers write

Down With Maney
To the Editor of the Kernel:
Dear Mr. Maney,
I would like to thank the Student
Government for allowing the Indian films
to be shown this Saturday.
I sense (?) that you don't consider
the films worthy or useful for the UK
(perhaps English speaking) student. Is it
presumptuous to think that exposure to
other cultures and languages will broaden
your own outlook and perhaps release
you from the mighty "ethnocentricity"
that seems to trap so many. "If it's not
in English, then it isn't:" or, "why can't
they at least dub in English for the
flicks." In my own experience with foreign
films, dubbed English is totally
to the film's nature. There's a
lot, also, that is lost in any translation
(this you should know, if you've filled
your language requirement). One lias to
be willing to try to understand another's
culture and language in order to learn.
What easier way to learn than to observe
people moving in their own culture.
Have you ever seriously considered the
impact of Mahandas Gandhi (spelling
doesn't frighten me) on the world and
how his philosophy of
and
incon-grouo-

non-violen-

Br

U ID)

equality has even changed your own
country? Do you realize that in Candhi's
own life there was a unique meeting of
cultures?
Gandhi was raised in an English India.
He wanted to be western but found that
it was impossible. He had already incorporated a western outlook and "it
was through the West that he really began to see the East." So he returned to
his people, this time with compassion
and understanding. Candhi has had impact on the world and has been called a
second Jesus so how can you so naively
equate him and his impact with that of

Barry Goldwater or Teddy Kennedy?
Your letter then veers from this topic

to your criticism of Student Government
and all the "real" reasons that they did
this. For once SG realizes as many others
already have that SG has the potential
to expose students to new ideas. I think
they should be congratulated instead of
berated. This isn't merely window dressing. Perhaps it will give new ideas for
discussion (many don't know enough
about Chandi and his culture to discuss,
give them a chance to think on their
own!)

Finally your remark about spelling

part of the issue? Why don't you reconsider and just to test your own reasoning, come on Saturday. I'll be there.

y

Mr. Maney's sardonic remarks of October 7 belie the worthy purpose in Saturday's commemoration of Mahatma Candhi's birth. Candhiji's life and works are
beyond sum and will stand unassailed
long after the vituperative Maneys have
passed on.
Never were we all in more serious
need of the ideas of this "one dead
Indian." That Gandhi, a political moralist and savant, might be compared with
a Goldwater or a Ted Kennedy is ludicrous, a nearly unparalleled display of
abject ignorance in this, the heartland
of provincialism. Injecting such a name
into a petty, campus, political rivalry is
repugnant.
May sophomoric senatorial hopeful
Maney, and others of his talk, in the future
seize upon more likely vehicles for maligning the incumbant regime.
