The question of whether UK needs
an honor system may be put to a
.student vote.
Alan Steilberg, chairman of a Student Government Association committee formed to study the question,
said in an interview Tuesday night
that putting the issue to a vote may
be the only way to settle it.
Steilberg said his committee has,
so far, written to five other universities requesting information concerning the various types of honor
systems.

Rotindtable over Station WHAS.
The tape recorded discussion will be
broadcast from 10 to 10:30 a.m.
Sunday.
The discussion panel will consist
of Dr. George Turner, professor of
English Bible at Asbtiry Theological Seminary in Wilmore: Dean Albert Ruetz. C.R., of St. Mary's College, St. Mary; Dr. John Henry
Melzer, associate professor of philosophy at UK: and the Rev. James
W. Angell. pastor of the Second
Presbyterian Church in Lexington.
The program will be planned and
moderated by Dr. Jonah W. D.
Skiles, head of the Department of
Ancient Languages and Literatures.
The current series of discussions
by the UK Rotindtable has centered around the "Foundations of
Western Civilization." or the great
ideas which have contributed to the
progress of western civilization.
Dr. Skiles, who has planned and
moderated the entire series, said:
"The foundation of western civilization has been built on great ideas
that have set the course of western
civilization. One such idea is the
one of the dignity of man. This
comes from the Hebraic idea of man
in God's image and from the Greek
and Roman idea that man is a free
individual. Notice that the revelation and the rational ideas reach
the same conclusion."
Dr. Skiles said that the Resurrection brings immediately into clear
focus the immortality of man in the
same manner that the Incarnation
of Jesus brings into clear focus
God's interest in man.
"Both of these ideas have had
tremendous influence upon western
civilization," Dr. Skiles said. "Even
those who do not believe in either
of them will admit that."

Most Complaints About Infirmary
Are Groundless, Interview Shows
Complaints by UK students have been directed
against tht Infirmary tor some time. The subject
was brought np by SGA members at their last
meeting. Upon investigating tin matter, we have
found that most of the complaints were groundless.
The criticisms were that a lexer seemed to he
the only criterion for admittance, that nurses instead of doctors diagnosed the students, and that
son1 students were refused treatment.
Dr. John S. Chamlcrs. head of the campus
Health Service, stated this week that anybody who
looks sick or feels sick is welcome to stay at the
Infirmary at any time, lie added that there were
no barriers or restrictions to admittance at the In-

student were liv ing at home, it would be
difficult to contact a doctor and have him in the
home in the length of time it takes to get one at
the Infirmary.
We have no doubt, that, at times, the Infirmary
makes mistakes in its diagnoses or treatment. Hut
it would be impossible to name any doctor or
hospital which has not at some time diagnosed a
patient or patients incorrectly. The Infirmary stall
cannot always be right and UK students have no
right to expect them to be. Criticism can be constructive. but there's nothing worse than destructive criticism which accomplishes nothing.

In very few instances are Urv students refused
treatment at the Infirmary. However, it should be
recognized that any student requiring specialized
treatment would have to go outside the campus
for medical care. Major surgery and serious diseases, which would require that the student go
home, are cases of this type.
An incident brought np at SGA meeting last
week about a student who was refused treatment
to check bleeding following the extraction of four
wisdom teeth is an example of jieeded specialized
care. The student was instructed, naturally, to see
his dentist since the required treatment would
have involved more than general medical knowledge. To us. this seems to be a sound and logical
procedure. If the student had been treated at the
Infirmary by someone not qualified to do the work,
and complications had resulted, the situation would
have been worse.
In regard to the criticism about nurses diagnosing
the students, a doctor is on call at the Infirmary 24
hours a day. During the day, each student is required to see one of the doctors before receiving
any treatment. At night, any student entering the
Infirmary showing symptoms of illness is put to bed
and a doctor is informed if the illness is serious.

Massie Compares
Med School Cost
in two previous guest editorials we have tried to
point out the need for a second medical schxl in
Kentucky due to the falling numlwr of doctors in
practice and the increasing population in this state.
We have indicated that increasing health and accident insurance, and increasing and legitimate demands on the doctors by the public for special
services will make it necessary to have more doctors
per unit population than ever in the past.
We have quoted the figures show ing the cost of
building and maintaining a medical schxl at UK.
These figures were presented by the University's
own Committee on Medical Education. This Committee stated that by present values of material
and labor it would cost S15.T31,(KK) to build and
maintain such a school for the first nine years and
that the annual cost of maintenance thereafter
would be about $6SO.(KfO.K).
We have previously suggested how this money
might be raised by the State Legislature.
The present editorial is an attempt to outline the
position of the Fayette County Medical Society on
the probable cost of a medical school. With all due
respect to the studies of UK's Committee on Medical Education, we do not lx'lieve that SI 5.731. (XX)
for the first nine years of building and operating
a school will be enough to give us the 'sort of
school we want and should have. We base our
opinion on the costs of the new medical schools in
Florida, North Carolina. West Virginia, and Washington. These costs run lx 'tween 20 and 25 million,
with annual maintenance costs between $750,000.00
and S2,000,(XX).
The Fayette County Medical Society has been
active in planning and promoting a statewide committee whose members w ill undertake a campaign
for raising 10 or 15 million dollars from private
sources. When this project has been brought along
somewhat further, the plan is to employ a firm of
professionals to conduct a money raising campaign.
Our present idea is. therefore, to accept the figure
of $15,731,000 offered by UK's Committee, and in
addition go "all out" to raise an additional 10 or 15
million from private sources so that UK will have
a medical school equal to that of others.
