VA head denies agency cutting its number of hospital beds

Associated Press

LOUISVILLE. Ky. — The head of the
Veterans Administration denied yesterday
that his agency was cutting back on hospi-
tal and nursing home beds for the nations's
former military men and women.

He said the VA has more beds than pa-

“If we had twice as many beds. we
wouldn't have any more patients.“ Thoma
as K Turnage said in an interview after a

speech to the American Legion's 70th an-
nual convention.

The VA, which Turnage has directed for
2 1/2 years, has been increasingly crit—
icized as an insensitive bureaucracy by
some congressmen, editorialists and lead
ers of veterans' organizations

Among the allegations was that the \'A
is reducing healthcare beds.

The VA has 85.000 available beds. with
about 71 percent occupancy. in its hospi-
tals and nursing homes and in other facili

ties where beds are contracted by the
agency. ’l‘urnage said.

Another 5000 to 6.000 beds are unavail-
bale because of construction or renovation.
he said

Any indictment of the VA liealthcare
system is an indictment of the national
system because the two are so closely
linked, Turnage said.

"The tVAl system is doing well. it has
the mission of taking care oi veterans. and
it‘s doing it well." Turiiage said

Van Horn, who is the No. 1 WB('

hasn't fought since May 5 because
of an injury to his leg. which he

bored. I‘m excited about fighting
on campus.”

During his layoff from boxing.

UK’s DeBoer finally

UK volleyball

taken the UK

being a suc-

only four years. But few have real—

is i'ntilnow

Just last season DeBoer estab-
lished [K as a force to be reckoned
with after years of effort.

The Lady Kats stayed in the Top
to most of the year and won the
Southeastern Conference regular
season and tournament

championships. They also ended
the year with a 31-2 record.

This season that success has car-
ried over: UK swept its state rivals
in last weekend’s Kickoff Classic.
It made UK 2-0 and was Ken
tucky's 20thconsecutive home vic-

“We are one of the up and com
ing programs in the South,” De—
Boer said. “We are just trying to
improve from year to year."

Kathy DeBoer received the high-
est honor that a coach can receive
when she was named National
Coach of the Year, as voted on by
nation‘s volleyball coaches.

But said she‘s prouder of what
her athletes have accomplished
than what she has done.

“I‘d like to be remembered as a
coach who made a difference in the
life of the student-athlete." she

Yes, the story is sad, but true.

other albums combined. A Top
Forty radio station in Louisville,
notorious for constantly plugging
“artists" like Tiffany. started play-
ing their songs. The Cure even had
videos in heavy rotation on MTV.

But it didn't get quite that bad.
Their singles ”Hot, Hot, Hot" and
“Why Can't I Be You” both
bombed on the Billboard Hot 100.
Their journey into commercializa»

album Standing on A Beach.

as "A Night Like This" and ”Kyoto

Computers mak

Computers have become as nec-
essary as oxygen. They‘re a life—
support system not unlike the tech-
nology needed to tavel inside a

On the other hand. computers
are not comparable to hospital de
vices that enable terminally ill pa-
tients to live longer.

A fundamean question is wheth-
er we desire to keep our feet firmly
planted in the 19th or earlier centu»
ries. or if we long to discover the
new worlds of the 215i or later cen-

Part of the sheperd in me longs
to be closely associated with Ewe-
dawg. the Great Pyreness puppy
recently acquired at Plum Lick

Ewedawg is bite. not byte. and
she won't ever need a spread-sheet
to tell her when a coyote or wild
dog needs to be sent down the road.

Yet. there‘s another side of the
sheperd that yearns to be a part of
the restless onward course of tech-
nology. There‘s no standing still on
this one

Just as Columbus went out to dis-
cover a new world. just as Neil
Armstrong took one giant step for
mankind. so sheperds can ill afford
to be disinterested in the latest

The next wave of advanced com-
puter technology will be “multi—
tasking.“ Soon. the old adage about
not being able to do two things at
the same time will become as out—
dated as horse and buggies we‘ll
still be able to respect the Amish -
we‘ll just have to decide how up-to-
dateweneedandwant tobei.

Even though the jury is still out
on multitasking. there‘s every rea
son to believe that the folks at
Apple. IBM and other closed and
locked rooms from Silicon Valley
to the hidden recess of Japan will
figure out how to do it.


That doesn‘t mean we‘ll all have
to multi-task all the time. There
are some things that are better left
as they are.

For example. Ewedawg need not
worry about protecting the sheperd
as well as the sheep That’s asking
too much. She‘s got one job to do.
and as long as she does it well.
there‘s no sense in piling on
another expectation.

Bigamy. likewise. is against the
law. and there's a fairly sound rea-
son for it. How one man could
please two women. or one woman
please two men at the same time
within a marital framework has al-
ways been a mystery to this shep—

Although the Mormons took a run
a polygamy and may have found it
to their advantage as well as their
liking. the rest of the nation decid-
ed the better way was monogamy.
Multi-spousing is out.

Then there‘s the problem of
going forward and backward at the
same time. Who needs it'? One step
forward and one step backward
equals going nowhere. Doesn‘t
make sense.

Might as well stand still in the
first place. Hedging bets and strag-
gling the issues is an indication of
lack of resolve. and usually results
in new worlds going undiscovered.

Two steps forward and one step
backward sure beats on step for-
ward and two steps backward. and
that may be the healthy compro
mise on multi-tasking.

In fact. the art of compromise is

e the world simpler and more efficient

fi?‘ gs




Computers have freed our individual creativity and increased our

productivity and excellence

probably some of the most impor-
tant work we'll ever do To that
end. this sheperd is going to keep
one eye on Ewedawg and the other
on what‘s presently out of sight on
the other side of the hill.

It seems important to hold on to
what we have and try to improve
the quality. rather than the quanti—
ty of it Computers and the new
multi-tasking can help us do this

Basically. we'll be able to do
more of what we do best. We‘ll
teach more skills. become more
sensitive in marital relationships.
pray more carefully. govern more
wisely. serve our communities
more generously and mind our own
stores more kindly.

A world without computers may
be simpler. but not necessarily
more efficient or benevolent. The

word processor. for example. frees
up individual creativity. increasing
productivity and excellence.

Graphic art is available to all
those poor souls not born with the
ability to draw a straight line.
Spread—sheets become the road-
maps for everybody from sheperds
to chief executive officers.

Ewedawg is perfection in guard
dog breeding for the flock. but the
sheperd needs more than one kind
of help. The Great Pyreness is an
ancient breed still sewing well. but
the sheperds of the 215i century
have greater responsibilities and

The computer has become the
new sheperd‘s rod and staff.

Leaders need to harness area’s growth

A couple years ago i spent some
time vacationing in San Antonio.

Tantalizing magazine ads had
filed my imagination with beauti-
ful. mesquite-scented sunsets. lazy
afternoons sipping margaritas at a
quiet cantina. spicy tacos for every
meal. maybe even a reckless Hol-
lywood gunfight in the shadow of
the Alamo. lco
