ends Kentuckian

Assisted Managing Edhor

The Kentuckian Magazine is
dead—at least for die moment.
Ironically, the fad thatsome need a
post-mortern explanahon of what
the Kenhrckian was is part of the
story of why the magazine died.

Student Publications Adviser
Nancy Green said the magazine was
“terminated for the remainder of
the year after the Board of Student
Publications accepted the
resignations of the coeditors on Jan.

But the resignations are really
only the latest in a series of
problems which have plagued the
Kentuckian for five years

After a long history as the official
UK yearbook the Kentuckian was
faced in 1971 with the loss of its chief
source of revenue after the 1970
publicatim d the “Black Book,” the
first yearbook to be denied
recognition as an official University

Senior fee once funded yearbook

Until that time, the Kentuckian
had a guaranteed number of sub-
scriptions (about 2,000) because all
senia's paid a fee upon graduation
which included the purchase price of
a yearbook whether they wanted one
or not.

The Black Book had broken from
the traditional yearbook format and
contained numerous photographic
and literary protests against the
Vietnam war, including a large
group of photograpls depicting the
Spring 1970 campus disturbances.

After the Black Book, the ad-
ministratim withdrew the senior
fees and the Kentuckian was forced
to generate its own subscriptions,
although it did and still receives
$114110 annually from the Univer-

As student interest in the yearbook
dwindled, so did subscriptions and in
the fall if 1975 the Board of Student
Publications voted to establish the
Kentuckian Magazine as an ex-
perimental project.

Accu'ding to CoEditor Mindy
Fetterman, that’s when things
really began crumbling. “Last
year’s fiasco was critical. We lost a
lot (i support,” die said.

Last year's budget not met

Last year was the first attempt to
produce the magazine. Four regular
issues and a special senior yearbook
issue were planned. But only four
magazines were printed and the

Kentuckian failed to meet its budget
by several thousand dollars.

According to Green, this was
because of mismanagement and a
loss of Sad interest. “What hap-
penedlad year was that there was a
group of interested students, but
they fell almg the wayside because
of poor management. They missed
deadlines and lost support in the
public .view,” she said.

But Greg Hofelich, last year’s
editor, said the problems he en-
countered in running the Kentuckian
were caused by a myriad of
University red tape and a lack of
sympathy fa‘ his efforts.

“The board last year was a rub-
ber-stamp board,” Hofelich said. He
noted that since it (the board)
usually couldn‘t get a quorum,
Green’s approved recommendations
were gaierany just accepted when
they did meet.

Hofelich also rejected the hu-
plica tion that he was responsible for

the budget overruns and noted that

all of his actions had to be approved
by‘ the student publications adviser.

“I never authorized any printing, I
just delivered the pages. Everything
I did had to be signed by Nancy and
approved by the board," Hofelich
said. “i asked her for so much help
and she never would give it.”

Publications board shows interest

Journalism professor Robert
Omdorff, who is serving his first
year on the board, said he thinks its
members are now interested,
although he admits it may be a little

“The board has been able to
establish qua‘um at all its meetings
this year and I understand that in
itself '5 an improvement over last
year,” Omdorff said.

Omdorff said he thinks the board
is in favor of recommending a new
format for the magazine next year
which was proposed at the
December meeting of the board as a
possiblity for this semester.

Tabloid may be proposed

The plan would make the Ken-
tuckian a tabloid magazine in much
the same format as “Rolling Stone.”
It would be published several times
each semester, be distributed free to
the students and have a circulation
of approximately 18,000.

The board will meet next Wed-
nesday to formulate a recom-
mendation to President Otis
Singletary on the future of the
Kentuckian, but Omdorff said he is

concemed about how the University
will view the recommendation.

“The operating budget may not be
large enough to accommodate us I
hope the University doesn’t look on
this as a trial and error proposal,"
Omdorff said.

Roger Loewen, assistant professor
of journalism and yearbook adviser
at Western Kentucky University,
said yesterday in a telephone in-
terview that his staff still relies
heavily on University funds.

“We receive roughly $55,000 in
funds which enables us to publish
about 8,5(1) yearbooks,” Loewen

The board is abo preparing a
survey of students, faculty and staff
to determine whether there is an
interest in a student publication and
what type is favored. Orndorff said
he expects the results should be
available early next week, before
the board meets on Wednesday.

This article by Editorial Editor
Walter Hixson is based on in-

It was no easy chore.

Basically, he could chose to
cooperate (as the NCAA, of course,
urged); take an adversary stance;
or play it by ear.

Other university presidents who’d
weathered NCAA investigations
urged Singletary to adopt the ad-
versary pos'tion. “They‘re out to get
you," many of them said. ”Make
them build their own case; don’t let
them in the door."

Fortunately, Singletary had other
advisers, men who knew better. Like

Huge. disc-shaped object

The women started home at 11:15
pm. and were about one mile south
of Stanford on the Hustonville Road
when they say they saw a huge disc-
shaped object, metallic gray with a
white glowing dome.

Yellow lights lined the edge of the
UFO with a row of red lights un-
derneath. A bluish beam of light
issued from the bottom.

Stafford, who was sitting in the
middle of the front seat, saw the
UFO first as it fellf mm the sky “like
a plane that was going to crash."

The three women were not the
only people who saw the UFO that
January night. Mr. Rogers (not his
real name), a farmer who lives on
the Htstonville Road, and his wife
were washing dishes at about 11:30
when Mrs. Rogers looked out her
kitchen window ani saw a huge
object glide above their house,
through their backyard and out over
a valley.

She screamed and her husband

said it was silent as it moved. They
estimated its size to be as wide as
the wing span of a commercial jet.

leveled off and crossed the road in
front of them. The craft banked
steeply to its right and aga'n crossed
the road, hovering to their right as
the women approached.

The UFO moved across the road
and directly above the car. Smith
saw a blue light in her rear-view
mirror and thought it was a state
trooper. But there was no car. She
tried to speed up but the car went out
of her control. The auto swerved
back and forth across the highway.

Smith said the speedometer
needle was touching 85 miles per
hour, even though she had her foot
off the gas pedal. Also. they felt the
back of the car bouncing as though it
were gang over a series of speed

Then, they lost consciousness.

The next thing the women
remember is seeing the streetiights

from where they first saw the UFO.
They drove home quietly, thinking
about what had happened.

from the restaurant to the trailer

U. 5. Forest Service
faces hard decision

Despite the severe whipping she has been
giving out lately, Mother Nature is continuing to
be ignored by some coal operators in Eastern


The controversy centers around a 4,800 acre
section of the Daniel Boone National Forest near
Somerset. The land, designated two years ago by
Congress as the Beaver Creek Wilderness Area,
now seems to be in danger of being invaded by a

coal company.

Supposedly, the designation as a wilderness
area is even more sacred than that of a national
forest. A national forest, by law, can sustain a
small measure of human interference, such as
the building of a road. In a wilderness area,
however, there can be no such interference.

The Beaver Creek Wilderness Area is
reportedly starting to show positive signs

If the Forest Service agrees to pay for the
mineral rights to the land, it could be faced with
an expenditure which has been unofficially

estimated at anywhere from $500,000 to $5



If this is the route taken, the money may have
to be pulled out of such other important
programs as land acquisition in the Red River

would like to build a road through the area in
order to reach coal reserves beyond the


The wilderness area designation will ef-
fectively prevent the company from prospecting
and building the road without permission, but the
US. Forest Service is now faced with some very

heavy decision making.

Three alternatives are apparent in the
situation. The Forest Serice can ignore the coal
company and try to preserve the area. Or, it
could try to come up with the money to pay for
the mineral rights. Finally, it could declassify

the land as a wilderness area.

Each option, of course, carries with it a certain
liability. If the Forest Service ignores the
company, then it could be compelled legally to

declassify the land as a wilderness area. This,
however, would set what could turn out to be a
bad precedent. There is a possibility that the
declassification could cause a dispute with
national in mplications.

When the alternatives are reviewed, it appears
that the first and second have one thing in
common: salvation of the land as a wilderness

Admittedly, the possible expenditures in-
volved could present a problem, but at present
there has been no confirmation of what those
expenditures could entail. And it would not be
illogical to assume that the land would be ad-
versely affected by prospecting operations.

Of course, some questions must be posed

concerning the issue of why this confrontation is

just now occurring. Congress finalized the
designation in January, 1975.

made the recommendation, was aware of the

out of that old “UK mightier than

knowing that I am not a dolt. I would
like to set the record duly straight.

Generally. the main battle I will
be taking on in the mayoral race will
be the insatiable desire of the press
to find the aberrations of each
candidate and fairly running them
into the ground.

Two such things that the press has
chosen to emphasize in me are my
age and my “idealistic" proposals



As long as these fools (Hagan and
Hall) are in charge, the Common-

see the classic showdown between
our two powerhouses or the continu-

could make the annual UCLA-Notre

Joe Kemp for actually doing what

for returning a portion of the
government to typical people.

I guess I am guilty on the last
count of taking Paine, Jefferson, et
al., too seriously in this age of
cynics’ delight. It is far more
advantageous to be part of the usual
stock that seeks elected position as
you are taken in stride by the media.

They are so accustomed to the
“silver spoon” theory of candidacy
that they rarely question the profes-
sional politicians about any real
qualifications. They just take them
for granted.

My suggestion of a shortened
work—week was merely a notation of
a popular proposal. I think it would
be appropriate for industry, but I
question its application to govern-
ment and do not support it at this

The key to implementing such an
idea would hardly be to take it out of
the “damn profits" of industry. but
through tax incentives on the part of
the Federal government.

My campaign will not be hamper—
ed in the slightest by the proposed
$90,000 limit. But the political sys-
tem and the quality of government is
affected detrimentally by the pre-
sence of massive amounts of money.

The question I keep asking is,
what favors do the donors expect for
their contributions. and how will our
taxes finance the debt? Shall we
build another civic center?

It is not my statement that my
only real exposure is from running
the state McCarthy campaign. It
was state, incidentally, not local as
reported. I have been continually
involved in the political system as a
student and as a participant in the
anti-war efforts and in civil rights

I would be happy to match wits in
a debate of political application with
any of the candidates. It might, in
fact, be more constructive than the
proposals for a debate of local issues
with the usual canned responses.

If voters are sincere in actually
determining the specifics of my
proposals. which could hardly be
described as “radically different,“
they may call me any time at home
and I will be happy to clarify
whatever damage the press may

The same thing applies to the
press as to government; there is no
mystery. Each reporter has a vested
interest in what is printed. I think
most readers are smart enough to
know that.

Perhaps we can question some of
the other candidates now as to their
proposals for traffic, health care,
employment, etc., and really get
down to the core of this whole affair.

With theatrical and calculated

NCAA would meet Nov. 1.

Matthews advice was taken
to heart. Singletary decided
to accept the cooperative
principle as a foundation for
UK’s involvement. The
University would cooperate
fully, helping NCAA in-
vestigators gather in-
formation about UK’s

Singletary and Lawson had
reservations about the
decision. The NCAA wants a
cooperative investigation,
they thought, yet the whole
process is set up as an ad-
versary proceeding.

Their reservations were
well founded.

The NCAA controls the
entire process; it sets the
timing and sits as judge and
jury. An institution has no
choice but to abide by the
established process. An in-
stitution that drops its NCAA
membership is not eligible for
post-seasm competition and
other NCAA-sanctioned

An institution being in-
vestigated by the NCAA has
no “discovery rights” under
NCAA guidelines. The school
is obliged to turn over its
evidence in a cooperative
investigation, yet, unlike a
legal proceeding, the school
has no right to see the

State coach Lueious Mitchell
discovered this NCAA power.

The contingent of UK in-
vestigators was continually
unable to clearly interpret
regulations in the NCAA

Lawson: “As an instrument
of communication, the NCAA
Manual is a failure.“

Singletary: “It has all the
shortcomings d the worst
university catalog."

Darsie: “l defy anyone to
make a clearcut in-
terpretation on some

And the UK officials were
disturbed by stories they‘d
heard about NCAA in-
vestigators browbeating
students and coaches,
threatening eligibility loss
unless information about
violations was supplied.

It‘s no wonder that

Singletary explored in ad-
vance the possibility of ap
pealing NCAA-imposed
sanctions against the
University. But an appeal
would becarefully considered
after the NCAA ruled. Until
then, Singletary would
cooperate fully with the
NCAA; Lawson, Darsie and
