Keeneland is the only such breeding, sales and training center in the area.
Pessin and Ellsworth made it known that, if they
bought the farm, they intended to build a breeding,
sales and training center to compete with Keeneland.
Maine Chance is situated between University-owne- d
Coldstream and Spindletop Farms, which makes it
ideally located or University research.
The research activities now carried on by the Agriculture College on Maine Chance have not lightened
the load on the experiment farms at Coldstream and
Spindletop, but rather the Agriculture Experiment Station on Cooper Drive.
"We've used Maine Chance to replace the land
we've lost here in town,", said Dr. Charles Bamhart,
director of the experiment station. "We've lost a significant amount of the old Experiment Station to the
new building program."

Chance is on Newtown Pike, about six miles from the
University. An example of a rented farm is one used
for animal science at Burgin, about 30 miles away.
The work on Maine Chance has been divided into
agronomy, animal science and veterinary science with

Dr. John L. Hagland is in charge of agronomy research on Maine Chance. Agronomy research is primarily
located on Spindletop, but carries over onto Maine

As Dr. Ragland explained "Our prime need is for
land level enough to do extensive plot work year after
year. Spindletop is better for this because MaineChance
is a rougher farm (terrainwise)."
There are approximately 720 acres of land (combining

They charge there was a conspiracy between the University

and the Bank of New York to
keep them from buying the acreage.
Oswald, who was president of
both the University and its research foundation at the time,
said the University had had its
eye on Maine Chance for years
before it actually bought it.
Oswald said he had tried to

make contact with the late Elizabeth Arden Graham during her
lifetime with the suggestion the
farm might be given, wholly or
in part, as a gift to the University.
These efforts, he said, came to
naught.
The farm was offered for sale
after Mrs. Graham's death in
1966 and it was July, 1967, when
the University's research foundation bought it.
Oswald told the jury of receiving a letter from then-ArtGen. Robert Matthews asking
that transfer of title of the farm
be delayed, but said he discounted them to some extent.
He said Matthews wrote him
y.

on Sept. 6, 1967, asking that
transfer be delayed while his office was making an investigation of the legality of the sale.
Oswald wrote Matthews Sept.
2D giving him information he had
requested and pointing out the
University's trustees had asked
him to carry out the transfer of

title.

Matthews again asked for a
delay in a letter dated Oct. 9,
Oswald said. The title was
transferred Oct. 11.
Matthews' first letter asking
delay, Oswald said, was published in the newspaper before
Oswald actually received it.
In addition, Oswald said he
was aware of "political involvement" at the time surrounding
Matthews. "I was aware he and
the governor were at political
odds," Oswald said.

Oswald said he was told twice
before the university submitted

of $1.94 million might be offered.
In no case, he said, was he
told who might submit such bids.

'Drunkard9 Barrels Into Barn Theater
'

By TERRY DUNHAM
Assistant Managing Editor
Can a morality play on the
evils of demon rum, a play which
elicited tears throughout the
country one century ago, become
a really funny musical comedy?
Can an actor who "has been'
pursuing a theatrical career since'
appearing as Coldi locks in a Boy
Scouts production of "The Three
Bears" succeed? Can he avoid
being typecast?
"The
Drunkard," which
opened Wednesday night at the
Lexington-WinchestBam Dinner Theater, answers these questions affirmatively and indicates
that the theater possesses the
ability to consist ently bring good.

week, sponsored by the Black

the plays open for tryouts are
"The Rainmaker," "And Things

The audience is invited to hiss
the villain and cheer for the hero,
and responded as generously to
this invitation as it did with
laughter and applause. It was
obvious that everyone present
enjoyed themselves thoroughly.
The songs are outstanding.
Laura Williams, "A Poor but
Honest Widow," and Julia Monroe, "The Widow's Daughter
An Innocent Flower," were particularly pleasing together when
they harmonized on "Heaven
Will Protect the Unprotected."
Donald Arrington was the perfect, leering villain, casting nasty
asides to the audience and acting generally like the dastard
that he was. His performance
demonstrated the progress he's
made since his
start as Coldilocks. "They call
me lecher, leech and toad," he
sneers, "but I don't care."
"Mr. Edward Middleton," the
hero of the play, falls to the
evils of drink provided by the
tempting Mr. Cribbs, who, as
might be expected, then goes to
the Middleton home and demands the rent money from the
hero's wife. Of course, she cannot pay. Walter Charles was excellent as Middleton, with a
powerful and clear voice and a
smile as toothy as one has the
right to demand from a hero
in such a play.

"The Drunkard," written in
the 1840 s, was for several decades
an emotional release for con fused
to sadAmericans, a
den all audiences and a portrayal
of the degradation brought upon
a family by the conquest of man
by liquor.
Today, however, the earnestness of the drama's sermon seems
hilariously funny, and the play is
to capture all the
allows. Allaughs the
the ploy follows the dethough
struction of a "good man," the
characters are exaggerated in the
competent spoof, so that the ambivalence between the play's original tragedy and its present humor is seen in only a few
instances. The brief reminders
that this is a play which might
in reality be a tragedy seems to
magnify the audience's pleasure
in being allowed to laugh at it,
just as viewers welcome a play
which laughs even briefly at poverty or war, in a short escape
from the horrors of their realities.
It is a sort of "Mighty Carson

vild
melodrama, of
lains and smiling heroes, and a
delicate, beautiful, and
heroine.

In times like these, when the

If the University wishes to maintain any facade of integrity, it must
do away with the credits it allows

subjecting students to these courses
make them less capable of evaluating the military as an institution,
but it makes the school itself less
able to deal fairly and on an enlightened basis with this establishment. If the University and the
military are engaging in a privileged relationship, how can one expect the former to deal with its
partner objectively?
These are the considerations
which demand that credit for ROTC
classes be disallowed and now.

Student Government And Its Political Games
The Student Government Assembly, which only a few months
ago showed signs of becoming
aware of the students it is supposed to represent, now seems to
be moving into the darkness again.
If the meeting Thursday night is
any indication of the circus the Assembly intends to become in the
forthcoming months, all hopes of a
responsible body of students working for the betterment of the University of Kentucky can be quickly
extinguished. That meeting seemed
only to indicate that many, perhaps even most of the assembly,
is more concerned with the upcoming elections and factional politics than anything else.
Assembly Speaker Steve Bright
got so embroiled in what seems

to be Greek factionalism that he
saw fit to overrule the SG parliamentarian, Bruce Carver, and pack
up and go home when the assembly began an attempt to unseat
him. Bright was successful in keeping his seat, however, thus holding
onto one of the most powerful

positions of the student governing body.
The move to deny to Thorn
Pat Juul a third vote in the assembly also was purely political.
The assembly voted to expel John
Daugherty, but at least one member of the assembly, after learning

that the seat would go to Juul,
saw fit to question that expulsion.

Juul, it is clear, is gaining too
much power to suit some of the
representatives.
And, of course, the whole controversy over censuring SG President Wally Bryan is hard to understand unless one considers politics. It just might prove unpopular
in a few months to have been one
!of the assembly members who did
not defend the retiring president,
especially since he has been somewhat faithful to his largely greek
constituency.
Yet, it is that time of the year
again. Student leaders are forgetting whom they are supposed to
represent. And that noble SG body
is up to its old games again.
