ReSearched at UK
Mechanized tobacco harvesting method

welcomed, condemned at UK conference

Stripping tobacco urnder a scor-
clning summer sun is a most
forgettable memory for most
Kentudry farrnhands, but it could
become a thing of the pastif tobacco
growers adopt a new arnd con-
traversal method of harvesting.

Known as “loose leaf” buriey
packagirng, the process has been
tested by sornne tobacco companies
in an experiment organized by the
Kentucky Farm Bureau. Studies at
the School of Agriculture predict
“loose leaf” packaging could save
millions of hours of labor and
wages—s25 million a year for arooo
farmers. '
lln the new system, burley is
Wrapped in burlap sheets or
strapped in bales. The process is
faster than the traditional method of
hand-tying bundles.

If the US, Department of
Agrianlture approves the sale of

loose leaf bundles, the process could
be asisted by a machine developed
at UK. The unit strips tobacco leaves
from the stalk and could even
potentially assort them into three
grades of quality.

The question of selling tobacco as
loose leaves was the center of
discussion at a meeting last Friday,
held at the Agriculture Building, of
500 petple from all phases of the
tobacco industry.

Many farmers said that unless
labor costs are cut, they will soon
stop growing the crop. However, one
expert said that money would be lost
by switching to the new process.
John Berry, past president of the
Burley Tobacco Growers
Cooperative Associah'on, said 15 per

where buyers demand hand-tied

but it’s foolish to save $25 million on
one hand and lose $50 to $75 million
on the other hand," he said, in-
dicating expected losses in foreign

Oppments of loose leaf packaging
have also argued that tobacco
quality would suffer from the
method. It is an understandable
concern; tlne crop is wortln around
$500 million to Kentucky growers.

Albert G. Clay, chairman of the
Burley Auction Warehouse
Associatim, has said the aroma and
flavor of burley are damaged by the
process. Clay, though, did not state a
preference for or agairnst loose leaf

U.S. Agriculture Secretary Bob
Bergland has objected to loose leaf
sales because the labor-saving effort
might put a number of Kentuck'unns
on welfare. lie is also opposed to

country, tobacco production is in-

The new process could abo cut
into farmers’ revenues, said John
Campbell of Tobacco Associates of
the United States. Untied leaves
would cause greater moisture loss
that would cut weight and came the

Cigarette manufacturers have had

Indicted FBI agent
should stand trial

Three hundred men marched in protest in New
York last Thursday. They were an unusual mob;
clean cut, short haired and. to a man, dressed in
conservative suits. It was an even more unusual
event because of who they were—FBI agents.

Resorting to the tactics of the opposition, the
FBI agents were protesting the indictment of
retired FBI supervisor John J. Kearney on
charges of supervising illegal mail-opening and
wiretaps on New York residents.

It was a scene fraught with irony. The agents
were demanding dismissal of the charges
against Kearney as well as a promise of no more
charges against other bureau men who par-
ticipated in “domestic intelligence operations."
These symbols of law and order were asking to
be exempted from the laws they have sworn to

The charges against Kearney resulted from
the bureau‘s overzealous supervision of the
\l’eathermen, the lunatic fringe of the Students
for a Democratic Society. Admittedly, the
Wea thermen presented a danger to society. They
claimed credit for numerous terrorist bombings
and were responsible for several senseless

Undoubtedly they should have been observed.
But the FBI had no justification for illegally
spying on citizens, regardless of the perceived
danger from the Weathermen. Now the agents
are saying that even if their actions were
technically illegal, their motives nonetheless
were good and therefore justifiable. It is an
argument that ,if accepted, could set a
dangerous precedent.

Apparently, however, a lot of other people
agree with the FBI. The American Legion called
the indictment “a victory for the elements who
would destroy our society" and the Attorney

General's office has been flooded with letters
condemning the action taken against Kearney.
Even FBI Director Clarence Kelly has gotten
into the act.

Kelly has publicly asked Bell to reconsider the
indictment. In a prepared statement Kelly ’

pointed out that under Atty. Gen. Edward Levi,

the Justice Department declined to prosecute

CIA officials for illegally opening citizens’ mail.
Some FBI agents believe they are victims of

Justice Department officials who hold a grudge

against the bureau. Assistant FBI Director
Andrew J. Decker, who is also being investigated
for his involvement with the illegal surveilance,
publicly attacked “a small segment of Depart-
ment of Justice employes engaging in a vendetta
spawned by smoldering hostility for the FBI.”

Regardless of the motives behind the recent
indictments, they cannot be lightly dismissed. If
Bell succumbs to the agents’ twisted logic and
fails to prosecute, it would not only be
hypocritical but it would also be a travesty of

The courts and not the attorney general should
decide if the agents are guilty. Already a Grand
Jury has found sufficient evidence of wrong
doings to issue indictments. To give the bureau
special treatment just to preserve FBI morale
would do more harm than good.

The bureau has been suffering from a lack of
public confidence since the incidents of FBI
misconduct were revealed during Watergate.
The FBI needs to clean house and not cover-up.

Its a simple fact that there can be no law and
order in this country when law enforcement
agencies are allowed to bend the rules. In this
case, the ends, no matter how noble, do not
justify the means.




If action is what you like, the place
to be this weekend was at the
softball tournaments at Haggin
Field and old Stoll Field. This
provided a change from the rather
disappointing UK Blue-White game.

The first tournament, the Haggin

from each floor against each other in
a single elimination competition.
The climax of the four-game match
came to a head Sunday morning at
11:30, with a thrilling. come from

again! In the first round action. the
Haggin team breezed by Kirwan 20
by a score of 9-3. Thcy then eased by
Blanding 2, 6-3, and ended up
walking off with the trophy in a 12-11

This is not your typical article
about Appalachia. Most things you
read today about Appalachia are
written by people other than Ap-
palachians telling the Appalachians
what is wrong with them.

As an Appalachian, I would like to
say that there is nothing any more
different about us than any other
group of people with one exception.
Once a year (at least) we are run out
of our homes by floods of an ever
increasing magnitude.

Contrary to popular (political)
consersus, the severity of the floods
is directly proportional to the
amount of strip mining done in the
area. Those of you who think that
strip mining doesn't affect the water
run-off from the land are kidding

The flood if ‘77 is one of the worst
in the history of Eastern Kentucky.
The future holds only a repitition of
the same thing unless the companies
mining the coal are held responsible

for their victims and are severly
punished for their devastation of the
land and the people.

I am calling for a much stronger
and better enforced strip mining
reclaimation law. One that won't
give the big companies the right to
allow the land to lay barren and
allow the waters from heavy rains to
run off in huge torrents devastating
whole valleys, taking houses, cars
and, most importantly, life in its

The water cannot be wholly
blamed for the devastation. The so
called strip mine inspectors who
decide how the land should be
reclaimed ought to get part of the
blame. The rest should go to our
great legislators who sit in their big
offices and make the laws that we
are to live by. I never have seen any
of them with mud on theirs oes or in
their house.

Unless something is done about
the control that the strip miners
have on the lives of the people who
live below the mine sights, we will
see more and worse floorb with
bigger ltsses of life and property.

History repeats itself

Backroom deals kill ERA


Supporters of the Equal Rights
Amendment (ERA) are gradually
learning the same lessons our
grandmothers learned when they
were fighting for women’s suffrage.

When there were only a few states
to go and time for the 19th Amend-
ment was running out, resistance
stiffened. The reasons the suffra-




gists in the United States and the
suffragettes in England were forced
toever increasing militancy was the
consistent and blatant betrayal of
women by elected public officials
who had promised support.

I’m growing a little tired of
hearing from the media that recent
ERA defeats are due to the superior
organizing of ERA opponents. And
this is why:

In Georgia Sen. Peter Banks,
co-sponsor of the ERA ratification
bill announced to the papers that be
doubted the ERA would pass this
year. He knew very well why.
Georgians for the ERA, a dynamite
coalition, had been optimistic about
the ERA’s chances for ratification
and had called demonstrations.

But Banks had manuevered a
backroom deal with the Georgia
state National Organization for Wo-
men (NOW), exchanging a complete
moratorium on all demonstrations

for ratification this session. 0.K., so '

it was a dopey thing to do, but Banks
was an old and trusted friend.

Within two days of the deal, Banks
tabled ERA action in the Senate,
killing its chances for ratification
this session. NOW’s “low key”
approach in Georgia ended with
public announcements of this be—

Despite all polls conducted
throughout North Carolina showing
that the majority of the population
favors the ERA, the amendment
was defeated in the Senate 26-24.
This vote was inconsistent with
previous statements of the senators,
which gave the ERA a narrow
margin. Opponents of the ERA
declared that a “concentrated pray-
er effort” helped defeat it.

Senators pointed to their mail,
much of which on closer inspection
proved to be sent from out of state,
mimeographed form letters. In the
House the ERA passed again by a
wide margin.

On April 13, the ERA lost in the
Florida Senate 19-21. Had Florida
senators voted according to their
public commitments to the ERA, the
bill would have passed 19-21. It will
come up in the House soon and is
expected to pass overwhelmingly,
but House ratification helps little
without passage in the Senate.

In Missouri and Virginia the ERA
was forced to a vote by opponents
who knew it would not pass. Rich-
mond polls showed 68 per cent of the
voters favor ERA. In Missouri 60 per
cent of white voters and more than
£1) per cent of black voters favor

We are still trying to figure out
what the hell happened in Nevada.
The victory in the Senate was won by
Senator Joe Neal, the only black
senator ever elected in Nevada and
an expert on parliamentary proce-
dure and Lt. Gov. Bob Rose, who
held the line on the floor fight and
cast the tie-breaking vote.

But the puzzle happened in the
House, where the ERA had passed in
1975. Polls conducted last fall show-
ed that the majority of Nevadans
want their representatives to ratify.
But 11 Democratic representatives
switched their votes and killed the


All 11 accepted campaign funds
from organizations advocating ERA
ratification. Eight of these politici-
ans took money and time from
groups working solely for passage of
the ERA,and there was a clear
understanding that the legislators
were being supported solely because
of their position on the amendment.

According to a statement in the
NOW newsletter, “Even now we are
slowly and painfully trying to put the
pieces of the puzzle together. Was a
deal made? Was blackmail used?
What caused the large-scale betray-
al that _. none of us could have

“It had to have been something

big, for there is not one legislator

who betrayed us who is unaware of
what trouble we can give them in the
next election. Whatever caused
them to sell us down the river, it was
large enough to risk their political
careers for.” ~

New tactics began a few days later
with an economic campaign:
“Equality in Nevada—don’t bet on
it!” It is gaining national momen-
tum and calls for not booking
conventions in unratified states, not
taking vacations in unratified states,
and not spending tourist or recrea-
tional dollars in unratified states.
Demonstrations and all manner of
public protest will continually make
our voice louder and clearer.

In the meantime, there is some-
thing you can do about it. The
Campus ERA Alliance has recently
merged with other groups to form
the Women's Rights Committee.
Women and men are cordially
invited to join and held in the
struggle for legal equality.

On chasing little men and leprechauns

There was a time when acorns

green trees. During spring. my

reason lu's friends called him Jack.

lie was a newspaper man of the old
school. I‘ve been told that he had
fiery red hair, but all I can
remember is gray loosely scattered
arounda n ever increasing bald spot.

Early in the morning on special
weekends, we would rise before the
sun and prepare for the hunt. He
sipped coffee on the back porch
while I [pined him with a large glass
of marge juice. As the sun slowly
rose, the birds chirped in har-
monious disorder. He knew eadr by
name. or so I thought, and would
answer each bird with a perfect
imitation whistle.

When the sun was just right we
would take off for the wilds. (flut-

ching a paper bag in one hand and
his land in another, I searched for
the leprechauns. Somehow I just
missed seeing them disappear
behind a towering oak or pine. At
least, that‘s what he always told me.

The little men with hats, however,
were easy prey for my eager
lingers. Sometimes we'd have to go
back to his house for another bag, so
deadly was my prowess.

As we strolled around the block. he
would entertain me with tales of
Indians and Ireland. At least, I
thought they were tales. Un-
beknownst to me. his stories weren't
tall tales but history'l can still
remember the anguish on his face as

I set in the shade and listened raptly
to him repeatthe story of the Trail of

At other times, he would put on his
best Irish accent and tell me of his
father's flight from Ireland during
the potato famine. His imagination
carried me on the cramped, sweaty
ship to Boston sill to the wilds of
Ken-tahteh, “th'eland of tomorrow"
and “the dark and bloody ground.”

I heard of County Kerry in Ireland

’where pain trees and “Magma"

competed for space with potatoes. I
lived with the Cherokee and chased
bandits thrwgh the unduhting hills
of Kentucky.

()ccassionally, he would talk about
himself; about how he became a
newspaper-man by accident. His
first love was the army. But as a
poor boy from Somerset he was
unprepared for the rigors of West
Point, where he was unable to pass
algebra and so fed to leave.

Back in Kentucky, he started
writing and for a short while was a
jourmlism teacher at UK. Everl-
tually. he was hired by the lauisvlle
t‘oulerJoer-nsl as bureau chief for
I-Iastem Kentucky.

The thing I most rerirember abort
him, however, was how frsl he was.
His arms an! legs were like reeds

and for aslong as I can recall he was
consta ntlyin motion. Later I learned
that the pressure of being the only
reporter for Eastern Kentucky took
its toll. By the time he retired, his
inerves were shattered.

He had seen “Bloody Harlan,"
Shipwreck Kelly and al that was
Kentucky. Through his eyes I saw it
all. On thosesunny spring days, I
became a writer.

And I know first some day, I won't
miss the leprechaun.
