'Quick money'


to end by I975

Kernel Staff Writer

QUICK MONEY for students facing
financial crisis—the donation of blood—is
being phased out of existence, said John
Norris, donor services director at the
Central Kentucky Blood Center.

The move toward strictly voluntary
blood donations has two sources—the U.S.
Association of Blood Banks and the federal

To bring an end to paid donors, the Blood
Bank has set a quota of 80 per cent
voluntary donations for 1973. Paid
donations will be eliminated by 1975.

Education and Welfare Secretary, has
called for abolishment of paid donor
programs within the next four months,
Norris said.

At least four bills restricting the use of
paid donors are now before Congress, he

“We’re down to about 95 per cent
voluntary basis,” Norris said. “We still do
accept paid donors, but you have to meet

certain conditions.”
THE BLOOD CENTER will only pay if

the donor has a valid student ID. has given
a voluntary donation in the past year and
has a needed blood type.

A past donation is required, he said, “so
we have a chance or opportunity for the
blood to be tested for hepatitis, venereal
disease and other harmful antibodies."

“We want to be absolutely certain it is

safe for both the patient and the donor,”
Norris said.

NORRIS SAID the blood center is
“barely" averaging the 60 pints a day
necessary to meet emergencies.

"We are actively promoting new donor
groups, having individuals join family

plans, and having people replace blood _
used by friends and relatives," he said.

A recent decision by Judge Cecil F.
Dunn of the Fayette Quarterly Court
allowing blood donations to replace minor
traffic fines has helped meet blood needs,
Norris explained.

Control bill passes

Outbreak of war in the Middle East and the resignation of
former Vice President Spiro Agnew overshadowed the
passage Of a strong strip mine control bill in the Senate last

Environmentalists in the state have long been fighting to
control destruction of the natural beauties of the land, and
still have not fully realized the goals sought.

Although this new bill is now in the House, the passage of
any strip mining legislation in the Senate is, in itself,
significant. Last year, a similar bill was passed by the
House, then died in the Senate when adjournment time

If the bill is passed by the House, representatives of both
houses of Congress will meet to iron out differences. In fact,
that the bill has been criticized by the coal people as being
“too stringent" leads one to believe there is some important
legislation here.

The bill is being touted as “strong” because it would ban
stripping of lands where the government owns the mineral
rights, even though a private owner has the surface rights.

However, the section that most affects Kentucky and
other Appalachian states is that referring to “broad-form
deeds.” As passed, the bill gives the mineral rights owner
precedence over the owner of the surface rights. The
wording was changed, however, to provide the surface
owner the right to collect damages if the property is
destroyed as a result of the mining process.

Stronger meaSures were out of the question in the face of
the energy crisis the nation will reportedly face this winter.

Sen. Marlow Cook (R-Ky.) said that although the wording
change regarding broad-form deeds was at his insistence,
“we may be slowing down strip mining, but we’re digging a
grave for us all.”

We are leaning too heavily on coal products for heat. A
realization that another source at energy is needed now
could spark added research. That stripping will be limited
and restoration of the land at least guaranteed if the Senate
Bill is joined by a counterpart from the Home is important,
but still doesn’t resolve the problem of the limitation of
natural resources






Unhealthy practice

This is just a little note reminding
motoriSts to make sure no bicycles will
smash into their car doors after they open
them. I realize that this request is un-
sportsman-like and reveals a cowardly
attitude on my part. But in fact I have
found car door smashing to be a rather
unhealthy practice, for my bike's frame as
well as my own.

More thoughtful actions on the part of
the motorist will have a positive effect and
will result in a much cleaner car door.

If their is a drought we must be sure that
their is enought water to sprinkle our
lawns. Besides, it’s a matter in which we
should have no real concern about for
surely those in a position to dam the Red
River Gorge know what’s best.

It was not really a good fad anyway.
Because, to support that which our back-
pack and boots stand for would require us
to speak out and act, as a whole, against
this incredibly foolish dam—to seek out
those groups who are attempting to stop
this atrocity. Yes, it was not really a good
fad anyway. Maybe now, Dingo boots will
come in again. Certainly their will be no

Spiro Agnew is now a household word


The Mets have won the pennant, they’re
looking for blood donors in the Middle East
and Spiro Agnew has been convicted of
income tax evasion and has resigned as
vice president. At this stage of the game, a
tornado striking the heart of downtown
Cleveland would be buried on page 34 of
THE NEW YORK TIMES. As they say in
the trade, not a particularly slow news

It‘s somewhat of a final irony that the
one man who so closely associated himself
with law and order has been brought to his
knees by the very Justice Department that
was once his flaming sword of retribution.
Who was Spiro Agnew anyway? Who was
this man who was plucked from the
governorship of Maryland and hurled upon
the national stage by Richard Nixon?

FOR THE PAST five years Spiro Agnew
held the second highest office in this
country. In the late ‘60‘s he was in the
vanguard of a repressive domestic policy
that came from the White House. A master
of scathing alliteration who went out and
tilted with the press. Agnew, for a short

time, seemed a little larger than life. The
hero of the hardhats, the champion of the
hemmed-in steel worker in Gary, Indiana.

He stood up to The Washington Post, The
New York Times and CBS. Using his
executive power as a shield, he called the
mass media alarmists and effete snobs. He
picked his spots carefully and he struck
a responsive chord. America loved it. Who
else could tell Richard Salant of CBS that
Walter Cronkite was nothing but a voice
that could move the merchandise? But did
he really mean it? There lies the enigma of
Spiro Agnew.

As the months passed it became ap-
parent that he was acting as the ad-
ministration‘s mouthpiece—the man they
trottted outwhen Nixon had a beef with the
Times or the Post. And for awhile it

AFTER HIS ROUGH-house tactics in
the congressional elections of 1970, Agnew
quickly faded into the obscurity of a vice
president who stood in the receiving lines
at State Department functions. In his
second term he was stripped of most his

duties by the President and was largely
ignored by the press.

When the deluge of Watergate became
public property Agnew’s name was
scarcely mentioned. Most people really
thought it inconceivable that he was even
informed of those backroom
machinations. But if Agnew’s star had
fallen inside the White House, Watergate
and his Mr. Clean reputation in that affair,
tagged him as the republican candidate to
beat in 1976.

Then it all began to go sour. Rumors of
extortion, bribery and political kickbacks
surfaced in the press. Agnew struck back,
calling the charges “damned lies.” But
the Justice Department, led by that very
proper Boston patrician, Elliot Richard-
son. had an ironclad case that even Agnew
with all his bombast couldn’t evade.

BL'T STILL HIS loyalty to the President
seemed to verge on the masochistic. In his
own hour of need he still found time to
praise the President and hurl epithets at
his detractors. Maybe he was hoping
against hope that Richard Nixon, the most
pragmatic soul to come down the pike

since Tamerlane, was going to save him
from the probing fingers of a federal grand

Then again, maybe he just wanted to be

Whatever the reason, he finally saw the
handwriting on the wall and decided to
make a deal before he could be sent to
Jimmy Hoffa's old cell in Lewisburg. A
$10,000 fine and three years probation may
not sound like much to some of us, but it
might as well be life imprisonment for the
former vice president. Spiro Agnew iS a
convicted felon. He has been utterly
destroyed, and years from now when
tomorrow's children are struggling
through high school civics, they won't have
to ask, “Spiro who?"

Media development revolutionizes politics


me new you TIMES NEWS seavnce

BORDEAUX, France—The . phenom-
enal development of the mass media
has revolutionized politics. Not simply
because propaganda and biased news
can be so simply and widely dissemi-
nated, but by the very fact of the
availability of so much information.
Every day, via radio, TV and print
the citizen is flooded with thousands
of messages. (We will not complicate
the argument by trying to figure out
the differences in the ways the three
media affect us.) Thus, we have to
realize that the individual retains only
a small proportion of these messages.
European analysts have found that the
average newspaper reader retains
about 10 per cent of the political news
he reads. That is probably fortunate;
if he remembered it all, he would go

This, of course, raises questions: If
the reader retains 10 per cent of the
political news, what is political news?
What is the filtering system by which
he retains certain parts of the news?
Why does he remember this rather
than that?

This is not a serious problem for
the average citizen. He remembers
what touches him closely: local news
will interest him more than interna-
tional news; news that directly relates
to his job, for example, the imposition
of new tariffs, interests him more'
than a discussion of general economic
policy based on remote decisions made
long ago.

In addition, we know that the more
distant and general the issue is, so
much more will the average citizen’s
viewpoint and opinions be based on
vague ideas, feelings, and impressions
rather than on facts and hard infor-
mation. Indeed, precise information
only nourishes and confirms his pre-
judgments. In general, the citizen
possesses adequate information about
matters that touch his interests and
concern him personally. He judges and
evaluates other issues by criteria that
have nothing to do with information.
His choices and, therefore, his reten-
tion of certain news items rest totally
on irrational ideas and feelings.

In each of us, then, these two mind-
sets operate on entirely different pat-
terns. (I am hypothesizing the best of
cases, namely, that the newspaper
performs its function well and really

furnishes the reader honest informa—
tion without biased commentary.) This
condition is not very serious in the
case of the ordinary citizen who
exerts little influence over political

But there is another consideration
that is very important. In a democracy
a politician must put himself on the
voter’s wave length. Otherwise, he
will not be re-elected. If we stick with
the traditional definition of politics—
the conquest and use of power—with-
out considering values, aims and ideal
objectives, we have to realize that the
politician’s first questions about infor-
mation are: How has the citizen been
informed? What does he remember?
Which, among all the thousands of
economic, social, and international
events, has he understood and inter-
preted correctly? How can I put
myself into his point of view? How
can I put myself on his level, both
in order to get elected and in order
to express his desires and will in
political action?

If the politician is brave, he may
try to use power for change, bringing
the mass of citizens with him. In this
case, he becomes a model for the
collectivity. He changes its opinions
and orientation. But this raises the
problem of how rigorously we inter-
pret democracy. Do we always operate
democratically? What about a govern—
ment that, instead of following and
expressing the will of the majority,
seeks to change public opinion and
persuade the majority to follow it?
How could it be otherwise, with such
volumes of information available? We
don’t even have to discuss secret
information that the politician may
possses. Such information is generally
much less important than is imagined.
A good newspaper provides all the
information needed for correct polit-
ical reflection and decision-making.
The difficulty lies elsewhere.

I believe we must distinguish three
levels of events about which political
decisions are made. The most super-
ficial are day-to-day events—the acci-
dents which spark interest precisely
because they have just happened. On
a deeper level there are long~range
trends—economic facts, the structures
and phenomena of power and admin-
istrative growth. On the deepest level,
there is the course of major, world-
wide developments—demography, for

One responds to each of these with
a different kind of opinion. On the
deepest level we find the ideologues,
utopians, the theoreticians. Public
opinion, formed (and deformed) by the
stimulus of the latest thing, operates
on the most superficial level. But the
politician normally must position him-
self between the two. He must formu-
late policy designed to last for an
extended period, whose content must
be open to thorough examination. It
must fit action to the structures of
society and not waver in the face of
accidental developments. This presents
him with two problems: first, he is
not going to be on the level of his
constituents’ public opinion; second,
he must continually evaluate the
information he receives and distinguish
between what has decisive political
significance and what will be forgotten

The hardest problem is exactly that
these day-to-day events tend to over-
whelm us. The journalist has a duty
to catalogue and transmit the greatest
possible number of them. But this
leads to psychological and intellectual
difficulties. Because we are constantly
observing what is going on here and
now, we become more and more
convinced that it is important; it is
increasingly difficult to detach our-
selves and reflect on the more endur-
ing and decisive problems. When we
succeed in doing so, we may feel that
we have retreated from reality,
whereas we are trying to see it from
a more profound vantage. We also
may miss a piece of important news.
Nevertheless, it is my constant obser-
vation that a correct frame of refer-
ence is a better basis for accurate
interpretation of reality than merely
following events day by day.

Let us take two specific examples.
During the cold war, while all Europe
was quaking with fear of being
invaded by the U.S.S.R., a few indi-
viduals calmly affirmed that this was
absolutely out of the question on the
basis of careful analysis of Stalin's
thinking and of his policies since 1934.
(The Soviet-German pact, on the other
hand, would have been predictable
on the basis of similar analysis.)

France in 1968 furnishes a second
example. While almost everyone was
declaring that the “Revolution of 1968"
had changed everything. and that
nothing would ever again be the same.
a few observers, not limiting them-
selves to the daily events or the daily

pronouncements of politicians and
revolutionary leaders, predicted (cor-
rectly, as it has turned out) that
nothing would change. Their judgment
was based on analysis of two realities:
first, the direction in which the
French Communist party and the
Confederation Générale du Travail
[the largest French labor organization,
led by Communists] had been evolving
over the previous ten years; and
second, the drive toward centraliza-
tion and executive control that is
characteristic of the French State.
These could only be accelerated, not
reversed, by what took place in 1968.
This is how it has turned out. But to
understand it one had to be detached
from what was working everybody up
and see what was going on in its real
context as part of a logical sequence
of events.

In short, undigested up-to-the-minute
information is not enough. We have
to know what to do with it and how
to utilize it. Above all, one must avoid
the passion and enthusiasm aroused
by passing events,

Here We must be very demanding
of our politicians. We must choose
those who can rise above the every-
day, who do not react without reflect-
ing, who can judge and interpret
events against the background of a
broad range of knowledge. They must
be strong enough to resist the imme-
diate pressures of public opinion,
which may very well change in a
month when another sensation comes
along. Failure to recognize this can
be tragic, because public opinion con-
siders what is most spectacular to be
most important, and views what has
just happened as fundamental, forget-
ting what happened a year, or ten
years. ago.

The very mechanism of the dissemi-
nation of news leads necessarily to a
gap between the political leader’s
judgment and the impressions of the
average citizen and, by the same
token, between the whole political
apparatus and the body of the nation.

Here We are in the presence of the
most serious problem that faces a
democracy. It cannot be resolved by
institutions but only by a new
