Student wages will be investigated

The committee will make a study
of student employment on the campus to sec how many students are
employed and what wages they
make. The committee will make
recommendations to the Assembly
and the Assembly will take these
recommendations to the Comptroller, Lawson said.
"I'm sure the Administration is
aware of the low wages on the campus." Lawson said, "but we should
let them know we are aware of it
also."

Jack Early was elected chairman
of the student wages committee.
Other members appointed to the
committee are Wayne Carroll. Jim
McCurry. and James Kostas. Law-so- n
explained that membership on
the committee will be increased after the SGA fall election to be held

case has been tried by the committee. It involved four UK boys who
started a fire in Scott Street Barracks while playing a "prank" on
another student.
"Dean Kir wan and the director
of the barracks took the case pretty
seriously." Carter said. "We deliberated on it for quite a while and
finally decided to put them on probation."

committee to fill a vacancy left by
Bob Davenport. Jim Bradbury was

First Annual
Traffic Study
Held At UK
State district traffic engineers will
submit and discuss traffic problems
today at the final session of UK's
Traffic Enfirst annual five-da- y
gineering School. Diplomas will be
awarded to those completing the
study.
In the initial address Monday.
D. H. Bray, chief engineer of the
Kentucky Department of Highways,
said there was need of "a great
awakening of the public to the need
of modern highways in Kentucky."
"Since World War II we have
realized In Kentucky that our roads
are Inadequate for the present traffic," he told the traffic specialists.
He cited the problem of selecting
highway specifications for the
speeds of modern automobiles as a
"serious subject". He explained that
high powered ears turned out
cently by manufacturers have
creased the amount of traffic so that
highways are inadequate,
-it's absurd now to spend
dreds of millions of dollars on
ways built for a speed of 60 miles
an hour when traffic is traveling
as fast as 100 miles an hour." Brady
said.
"Where are we going?" the chief
engineer asked his audience. "We
must discover what is 'par' before
we can build our roads."
Prof. R. E. Shaver, head of the
UK Department of Civil Engineering, told the group the "prime purpose of the traffic school is to create
more interest in traffic problems."
The UK Civil Engineering Department was in charge of instruction
during the school, assisted by the
Division of Traffic of the Kentucky
State Highway Department.
State, county, and city traffic engineers from Kentucky. Ohio, and
Indiana registered for the school,

your

letter of September

last

:We are on the line for about a week now, and
compared to the last time I wrote you, and since
we were called out of reserve again for Bunker Hill,
things are about 100 percent worse. Patrol casualties are heavy. The enemy is sending over plenty
of "76V to keep us hopping. When I go down
of my time is spent
the hill every day,
in dodging those damn things. Our position now,
of course, is bad. We have the enemy practically
looking down our throat . . .
I read what you wrote alxnit "being proud of
me." Of course I feel quite flattered. However,
there are plenty more such as I; fellow riflemen,
fellow mortarmen who do the same things as I. It
is out of our group that comes the heroes. It is also
out of our group that come the casualties, and the
latter are heavy considering the fact that we are
only
of the Korean troops that are on
line, and that we are the ones who expose themselves to danger every day . . .
Somehow I feel that when it is all over, and the
memories still remain, we will not be too anxious
to tell our story, and it will lx? the job of the rear
echelon boys to make up the sea of stories, and that
of the legal officer back at division HQ to write a
novel of the fighting man.
I used to tell . . . that if I ever wrote a look,
would have to lx? an experience I myself had gone
it
through, which I thought would make good reading.
Well I am going through the experience now and
hope someday to do justice to the guys I live with
in telling their story.
In each story or novel there is a symbol. Tennessee Williams used the Class Menagerie and the
Streetcar. Even the Bible had its star and cross;
mine will be a light.
Each uight, at dark, to the left of our position,
the spotlight goes up over Panmunjohn, symbolizing the fact that it is neutral territory, and that there
are peace talks going on. We are three miles from
the neutral road, but the MLR
a scarce hundred yards from the road. Each night patrols from
both sides go out guiding themselves by that light;
and each night they carry in their dead by it.
If I ever write my story, this will be my symbol.
To me here on the front line and to the rest of us,
the light; is the symbol of the world that is failing
us, of he uselessness of good intentions when they
find their false pride and fancy meaning (which
are thinly veiled with their search for power), doing
nothing, but making the innocent suffer. The only
tliree-quarte-

one-four-

thing in our modern world to us over here is. the
expert modern weapons we use and these are the
proof of the pudding that man' useshiylngenuity
to destroy himself.
j
At the present time we do not believe in Peace.
We do not believe in the equality or worth of man.
We do not believe in our country or the people who
run it. We are 8.000 miles from home.
We believe in our families and our friends. We
believe in protecting each other from forces beyond
our control. We live from one day Jo the next day,
only occasionally thinking of tlie future jand even
if we Jive, what a rotten future. We have a belief
'
in God lxyond all understanding.
We picked up a paper last week in which a politician predicted that the U. S. would not make any
decisions on the Korean truce until after the elections. Shall I send him a list of guys who were
killed in the last few months? Guys from New York
are lx'ing killed every clay over here, but two NY
columnists are engaged in a ridiculous argument
which is still hard to figure out. They are the type
of people who exert influence in my home town.

Education promises to lx the answer to the problem. Of course it will have to lie education that
goes beyond the traditional three I's. Our schools
will have to place more emphasis on how men are
alike rather than how they differ. Also, we will
have to give the insecure members of society a

Ultimate brotherhood will he achieved in the
minds of men, not on the pages of the statute books.
Until such time as that brotherhood is as widespread as we like to brag it is, however, our minorities will have to depend upon legal decisions to insure them at least some measure of equality, if only

One of our readers recently suggested that
dances in the Student Union would afford a
heeded social opportunity to a large group of UK
students.

The recent U. S. Supreme Court ruling that outlawed Jim Crow practices on the nation's railroads

fight to obtain civil rights for the 10 per cent of our

beings. The mental illness that is the root of prejudice must be eliminated if we hope to cure the
disease.
The object of prejudice varies from one part of
the country to another, depending on the particular
