Kentuckian reestablished
if sufficient staff found

Assistant Managing Editor

The Boa rd of Student Publications
voted yesterday to resume
publication of a hardback U niversity
yearbook for the 1977-78 school year.

The board decided to reinstate the
yearbook because UK President Otis
Singletary offered to double the
University subsidy supporting the

However, publication of the book
will not be resumed unless a staff
can be found. Insufficient staffing
contributed to the downfall of The
Kentuckian Magazine, which had


replaced the traditional yearbook.

The decision to reinstate a
yearbook (a me less than two months
after the board voted Feb. 16 to
cease publication of the magazine,
which had also encountered
numerous financial and operating
difficulties since its 1975 conception.

The experimental magazine was
an attempt at expanding and
replacing the traditional yearbook,
which was then losing student
subscriptions. In order to avoid such
problems with the reinstated
yearbook, the board plans to sell the
book for $5.

The subsidy increase will enable

the board to sell the books at the
reduced price.

Board Chairman Robert Orndorff
said the Singletary also offered to
underwrite possible sales losses.

Nancy Green, student publirations
adviser, said once the staff is formed
there are still other problems to be
solved before the yearbook can
begin operations this fall.

In particular. Green said the
renovation d present Kentuckian
office space and acquisition of ad-
ditional equipment are pressing

“The President has said that we
can submit our plans for renovation
through the normal channels and

that they will be weighed against
other renovation plans,” Green said.
“But there is no guarantee the work
will be completed by this fall."

Green also said that plans are
being made to acquire additional
equipment through University and
state surplus sources.

"As things stand now we assume
all of these problems will be solved
in time forthe staff to get moving in
the fall," she said.

Applications are available star-
ting today for anyone interested in
working on the Kentuckian. The
deadline for applying to work is
April 15.

UK genetic researcher joins nationwide controversy

over government 'interference’ in genetic experiments

Government regulation and
scientific research are strange
bedfellows, but the two .are sharing
close quarters at about 100 US.
universities. including UK, where
genetic experimentation is taking

Dr. Robert C. Dickson, an UK
assistant professor of biochemistry,
has joined the nationwide con-
troversy over whether research like
his, which could possibly create new
life forms, should be regulated by
the govemment.

Dickson, of the University College
of Medicine, is trying to determine

how lactose (milk sugar) controls»

the expression of certain genes in

“Our results should help us to
understand how genes are regulated

in more complex organisms, in-
cluding human beings," he said.

Research like Dickson's is aimed
at making it possible to remove
genetic material from one organism
and place it in another: Recom-
binant DNA, a name given such
techniques, is less than a decade old.

The field is so new scientists,
admittedly, cannot possibly know all
the potential hazards of creating
such life forms, and can only project
possible benefits of recombining

Dickson said “it‘s clear there have
to be controls” on recombinant DNA
research, but feels peer pressure
and self-imposed precautions can
act as effective regulation, without
turning to strict federal controls.

“You have to realize that most

scientists value their lives—they‘re
not going to do something unless
they’re convinced it’s'safe," he said.

Currently, federal control works
in the form of laboratory safety
guidelines, handed down last July by
the National Institute of Health
(NIH t. However, these apply only to
federally funded research.

Dickson, whose research is funded
by NIH. is governed by controls like
physical containment. "In our case,
we use microbiological sterilization
techniques." These include
autoclaving instruments before
disposal, and treating materials
with chemicals to “deactivate”

Dickson also said his lab has
“limited access"— the door is kept
shut, for example—and janitors use

a separate broom to sweep up.

A second category of containment
is biological. Dickson said he uses
“minimal biological containment.”
For example, he said, he uses
bacteria that have been “disar-
med,“ aid won’t grow if, for in-
stance, dumped down a drain.

The UK experiment has been
funded by NIH for a three-year
period, ending March 31, 1979. The
research is also controlled by
regulations drawn up by the
University Biohazards Committee.

Frank Becker, a UK law student,
who has been studying the federally
regulated research controversy,
said the issuance of NIH guidelines
ended a two-year “unprecedented
moratorium on recombinant

Assassination probe should continue

Since its creation the House Select Committee
on Assassinations has caused almost as much
controvery as the assassinations it is supposed to

Unfortunately. the panel‘s troubles have been
overshadowing the real issue—the necessity to
clear the air, once and for all, about the tragic
murders of President John F. Kennedy and Rev.
Martin Luther King Jr.

Last Wednesday, the House of Representative
by the narrow margin of 230 to 181 gave the
committee two years to complete its in—
vestigation. First, however. the assassination
committee must put its own house in order.

It got off to a bad start when a personality
conflict developed between committee chairman
Henry Gonzalez (D-Tex.) and chief counsel
Richard Sprauge. The flaboyant chief counsel
came to national attention when he successfully
prosecuted United Mine Workers president Tony
Boyle for the murder of Carl (Jock) Yablonski.

But the former Philadelphia prosecutor got

carried away with his demands which included
complete autonomy, an enormous budget ($6.5
million for one year) and secret surveilance
techniques that alarmed a good may

In February, Gonzalez tried to fire Sprague
without first clearing his action with the rest of
the 12-member committee—a move that cost the
chairman his job. The power play didn’t win
Sprague any friends either and eventually Iedyto
his downfall.

In an attempt to gain congressional approval
for continuation of their work, the 11 remaining
members plus the new chairman, Rep. Louis
Stokes (DOhio), voted to accept Sprague’s

Stokes said an informal survey Tuesday in-
dicated the committee would lose its battle to
stay alive by 20 votes if Sprague had remained.
Another factor that gave the committee some
support was the mysterious death of a key

George De Mohrenschildt, whom Stokes called
a crucial witness, apparently committed suicide
in Florida a few hours after an investigator for
the assassination committee tried to interview

Now that the committee has been left intact,
Congress should approve a sufficient budget for
the canmittee to suocesfully investigate the

Some congressmen have argued that the in-
vestiga (ion is a waste of time and no more than a
witch hunt. But Congress owes it to the American
people to established who really killed Kennedy
and King.

Since Kennedy’s death 14 years ago and King’s
death nine years ago, countless theories have
been advanced about conspiracies involving
everything from foreign powers to the FBI and

If for no other reason, the committee should be
allowed to continue its investigation to clear the

agencies that have been linked with the

Some would argue that you can’t bring back
the dead, which of course is true, but if there
were conspiracies involved, which seems highly
likely, then the country is in serious danger.

The person(s) who orchestrated the murders
could still be active in government. Kennedy’s
assamination in particular raises serious im-
plications because democracy was perverted by
his death. Those who successfully eliminated one
president could easily strike again, particularly
if they had the tacit approval of the CIA or FBI.

Answering whether these enforcement
agencies were involved is crucial because there
have been several substantial charges that both
agencies bungled the investigations and, in some
cases, withheld vital evidence.

The assassination committee may find no
validity in these charges and may discover that
Lee Harvey Oswald and James Earl Ray acted
alone. If that is what they discover then so be it,
but to leave any questions unanswered strikes a
blow at the structure of justice.

my advise: even if you have to go to
Japan to find those readings. find
them The 50 point essay to be taken

Have you ever heard this line on

FDA proposes putting ban on water

WASIIlN(i'l‘()N,[).C.-The Food
and Drug Administration (FDA)
announced yesterday that it intends
to ban the sewing of water in all
federal restaurants over which it
has jurisdiction.

This ban is based on results of
experiments with laboratory
animals conducted in Mr. McIn-
turff’s cla$ at Southern Junior High
School in Lexington, Ky.

“We found several properties of
the substance which could prove
harmful in human beings,” McIn—
turff said. “The first experiment


bruce w.
r singleton


involved forcing the lab animals,
mostly mice and rabbits, to ingest as
much as 30 gallons of water a day.
As a result, many of these animals
developed a strong desire to go to the
bathroom a lot.

“The second experiment involved
holding these animals under the
water for three to five hours at a
time. Without exception, the
animab seemed to develop severe
respiratory difficulties and died.

“Finally, we observed the
behavior of the fish in our aquarium.
We noted that those fish, par-
ticularly the guppies, tend to do
disgusting things in water."

The National Union of Taboo
Setters (NUTS), long a proponent of
the water ban, was delighted by the
FDA ruling. According to area
director John Durr, “Our group has
known water can cause these effects
for a long time. Of course, it‘s good
that the FDA has recognized that
these effects in laboratory animals

Without wishing to comment on
the main conclusions of your edi-
torial entitled “lnexcusable Ab-
sence" (Kentucky Kernel, March 24,
1977, page 2), I want to take issue
with a statement appearing in said
editorial: "Passage of the new
pocedure was the result of exten-
sive pressure by administrators in
the College of Arts 8: Sciences, who
were seeking to ease the filing load
earned by increasing numbers of
shrdents dropping courses several
weeks into the semester.“ This
statement is incorrect.


is prima facia evidence of similar
effects in human beings.”

Steve Wilhoit, national president
of Brotherhood of Lacustrine
Totipalmate Sciences (BOLTS) took
a different view.

“I don‘t doubt the validity of the
experiments," he said, “but I also
can‘t see how the FDA thinks it can
automatically ban something in this

“Sure," Wilhoit continued, “the
ban is only at a few federal-level

restaurants today, but what about

next week or next year? Sooner or
later, they’re going to be coming into
our homes and look to see if we‘ve
got water on hand for private con-

“Thatwould be going too far. If I
want to have water in my house and
let my kids drink it, it's nobody’s
business but my own.”

President Carter says he will
“reluctantly support“ the water ban
at all formal gatherings in the White
House. He noted that this will mly be
a “temporary inconvenience," once

Cooking With Pabst Blue Ribbon hits

to begin today, April I.

HAVANA-Commissioners Bowie
Kuhn and Pete Rozelle teamed up
yesterday, signing an agreement
with (liban premier Fidel Castro
which would implement use of the
thirty second clock in college

The move was prompted by the
commissioners’ observations during
recent NCAA post-season tour-
nament play.

“Somebody has to seize the
initiative inthis kind of thing," Kuhn
said. “Somebody has to have the
power to make instant decisions and
make them stick. We‘ve taken this
move to protect the institution of
basketball from those who want to
come in and make it a ‘kecpaway‘


The facts are as follows. A faculty
member of the College of Arts and
Sciences submitted a proposal to the
A818 Council to change the W-grade
policy. The MS Council consists of
nine faculty members and one

After extensive discussion, the
A818 Council agreed on a modified
version of the original proposal
submitted this version to the Senate.
This version was amended on the
floor of the Senate and passed as

During the discussion by the AdrS
Council, there was no pressure
whatsmver from aw: ‘ ’ ' inistrator.

The agreement provides for a
cIOck to be used during all college
basketball games. The clock,
similar to the one used in the pro‘s,
would force the team with the ball to
shoot within 30 seconds of taking
possession or lose the ball. The clock
would be turned off during the last
four minutes of regulation play,
however, providing the prospect
that a ‘four-corners' offense could
still be used.

"This move is not only in
basketball‘s interest." Rozelle said,
“but also in the ‘consumer’ interest.
People pay to go see basketball.
Sponsors spend a lot of money to put
the contests on TV. And when some
clown decides he wants to spend half
the ball game holding the ball and
shooting free throws, its time
something is done.“

Castro. long a fan of American
basketball. said he was happy to do
‘anything I can‘ to promote use of
the thirty-second clock.

“Some of my favorite athletes
play college basketball. In fact," the

Requests for volunteers double

Peace Corps starts UK office

The Peace Corps has
established a- permanent
office on campus in order to
stimulate recruitment of
recent UK graduates.

The corps is faced with
twice as many volunteer
requests as last year and is
looking l'or graduates with
either specialized skills or a
liberal arts background.

UK's Peace Corps coor-
dinator Ken Wiegand, whose
office is in Bradley Hall, said
that as recently as December
the Peace Corps was turning
away applicants with social
studies and liberal arts
backgrounds because very
few countries requested
volunteers in those fields.
Now, he said. the situation
has reversed itself.

“There are two reasons
why liberal arts majors are
becoming accepted and
trained for our programs
overseas.“ Wiegand said.
“First, the Peace Corps has
been very unsuccessful in
attracting highly technically
trained people.

“Sec ond. many feel that the
US. college graduate
possesses the kind of attitude
and general skills which often
provides the catalyst or
leadership for development
overseas. They‘re willing to
get their hands dirty," he


The Peace Corps, however,
has set a priority on
recruiting graduates in
scarce skill areas like
production agriculture.
medical technology or
computer programming.

Also, graduates with a
masters or bachelors degree
in business administration
are in demand to advise
farmers' marketing co-ops,
small business‘men’s
associations and government
planning agencies.

“Hopefully the applicant
will come in three months in
advance of when he‘s going to
be available," Wiegand said.
“That's how long it takes to
get him into the system.“

Before an applicant
receives his formal invitation
from the main Washington,
DC. office, he or she must be
interviewed and complete the
autobiographical application
forms, which are sent to
regional offices.

Physical examinations and
records checks are of vital
importance. “The Peace
Corps is very paternalistic to
your physical well-being,”
Wiegand said. “Some
countries have short insulin
supplies and some countries
would be intolerable for
chronic asthmatics."

Seventy per cent of the
accepted applicants are sent
to the country of their choice,

Wiegand said. Job skill and
the applicant’s availability
help determine the volun—
teer's destination. There are
approximately 60 developing
countries served by the Peace

“One girl came in recently
with a degree in social
studies,” said Wiegand. “A
