“As long as we kept our feet
moving, we could study, crochet, or
even play tag. The music kept us
going. I'd feel likeI was going to fall
right over, then I’d get a spurt of
energy." After having ‘moved her
feet’ for 20 hours, Valerie Osborne
and her partner didn’t win the dance
marathon sponsored by the UK
residence halls this weekend, but
she “sure did get exhausted.”

Osbtrne was half of one of the 17
couples who entered the marathon,
held at the Commons. “I entered
just for the fun of it and because it
was a good cause,” she said.

The dance marathon, which ended
Sunday at 8 pm, was held to raise
money for temp KYSOC, a Ken-
tucky camp for physically han-
dicapped children. According to
Drema Wire, head resident of
Blanding IV and co-chairman of the
dance, the publicity that the camp
receives as a result of the dance also
helps them to get more money from

other sources.

Copy Editor

Room and board rates will go up
next fall if proposed increases are
passed by the Executive Committee
of the Board of Trustees. That
comnrittee will nreet this afternoon,
according to Jack Blanton. vice
president for business affairs.

Blanton called the raised rates
“the minimum increase (needed) to
balance the (housing and dining)

“Housing and dining have to
operate in the black,” he said. “We
try to break even in terms of
revenues" from student fees.
Housing and dining budgets receive
no tax or tuition subsidies, Blanton

Increased utility costs are cited as
the major reasons for the proposed
increase. Blanton said these costs
include heating, cooling and elec-
tricity expenses.

According to Jim Wessels.
director of the Physical Plant
Division, “utility costs go up and
up" every year.

The increase as now proposed (see
chart) is based on a two-year
average of utility costs, Blanton
said. The figures are also based on a
98 per cent occupancy rate, rather
than the 95 per cent rate most
universities use. because of I'K's
“tight" housing situation, Blanton

The new rates were reviewed by
the student advisory committee for
business affairs before being sub-
rrritted to the Board‘s Executive

Blanton said the proposed in-
creases ane being decided now
because he “wanted students to
know (aboutthe increase) before the
Board meets in April."

If passed it would be the first

two years.

congressional nod I

More than two years after Watergate
culminated in the resignation of President
Richard Nixon, Congress is taking positive
action to clean its own house. This week both
houses of Congress Will consider a tough code of
ethics for congressmen, which should eliminate
some questionable, though currently legal,
sources of outside income.

The proposed code of ethics is particularly
timely, coming less than two weeks after a
congressional pay raise of 28.9 per cent over last
year. And in the past year, Congress’s image has
been tarnished by a series of scandals ranging
from abuse of Capitol Hill payrolls to acceptance
of questionable corporate and foreign money.

In addition, in a recent Harris poll com-
missioned by lawmakers, Congress was rated
ninth among 11 American institutions. 0b-
viously, Congress is suffering from a lack of
respect and trust from the public.

Under the proposed code, congressmen’s
outside income would be limited to 15 per cent of
their current salary. Honoraria for a speech,
appearance or article would be limited to $1,000.
Gifts valued at more than $100 would be banned.
And congressmen would be required to report

System goofs by placing
Haley lecture in small hall


Now I don‘t want to be the one to
bitch about the inadequacies of the
University system. Don‘t get me
wrong. I like the system. it's rather
cute once you learn the ropes.

But the other night, Tuesday,
March I the system made a blunder-

,, boo-boo. Note that I said the
system made a mistake. I'm quite




sure that if you contacted "IT" that
no one person could or would isolate
himself as the jerk who made the
decision. (Bureaucracies are fun to
hide behind.)

If you haven't got the gist yet, and
there‘s probably no earthly reason
why you should, I am referring to
the scheduling of the Alex Haley
Roots lecture in the all-too small (for
ti 4 purpose) Memorial Hall.

The little lady and I sauntered up
to the door about 10 minutes before
the scheduled beginning of the
discussion. We were informed at the
door (by a black man. mind you)
that people had been being turned
back into the cold for quite some
time now.

When I asked of the gentlemen if
my lady friend and I might slip

inside and stand in the aisle to listen.
we were informed that the aisles
were packed. There wasn‘t even any
standing room!

Now we come to our problem:
Why. oh why. did “IT“ schedule a
happening that was destined to draw
several thousand people from both
on and off campus in such an
evidently inadequate space.

I‘m sure one good excuse was that
the Christians had taken over Mem-
orial Coliseum on that particular
evening and it was unavailable for
public use. (I thought the church and
state were to be separate—I guess
that‘s only when money's not in-

Not that I have anything against
Christians. some of my best friends
are (whisper it) Christians. But
really folks, we all know that all you
have to do is throw a bible out in the
street and within 10 minutes there‘ll
be a covey of Christians swaying
around it and chanting something
about the “Word.“ (But, if I tried to
explain to them about the word
“om" they would no doubt refer to
meas a communist pinko fag).

Like I said, don‘t get me wrong, I
like Christians. my own Mom's a
Christian, and I realize that their
function did attract more people

than the Roots lecture and therefore
deserved the use of Memorial Coli~

After all, it should attract more

Back to my complaint, though,

Student Center Ballroom (which I
hope holds more people or I’m
gonna’ look awful dumb). To para-
phrase, “If you won’t give me the

the opinions of women who feel, in

The article in question begins by a
reasonable and straightforward ex-

hundreds every day. We all have at
least an empathetic appreciation of
this difficult situation. It requires
serious and thoughtful examination
of our beliefs and the consequences
of standing by them, whatever they
may be.

The writer continues her narrative
by concluding that an abortion is the
best option for her in this situation.
From this point on, the article
degenerates into an emotionalistic
montage of self~doubts, guilt, con-
fusion, and scattered images of
noxious stimuli.

This portion of the article is not a
valid or useful contribution to any-
one’s understanding of what abor-
tion is all about. and the author
exposes herself as an irresponsible

them. The author also reveals a
dearth of personal courage and
responsibility by refusing to sign her

It would seem that someone who
would place himself in the public
spotlight and make statements in
the process of seeking an elected
office would make some effort to
get facts straight and to try to deal
with subjects in a candid wav.

With this in mind, I would suggest
to mayoral candidate Terry New-
man that he do a little investigating
before he puts words into his
opponent‘s mouths.

In his interview with the Kernel
Newman states that, “Every can-
didate in this race has spoken of the

lack of leadership demonstrated by
the present administration, and
each has suggested that he can offer
Lexington the needed leadership."

The actual fact is that on Jan. 18
Nick Martin, in his announcement
speech, said to the press, “The
notion of leadership is meant solely
tocapitalize on the false hopes of the
voters and is not a viable issue in

Martin added, “The present
mayor can be criticized for many
things, but certainly not lack of
leadership.” This is a direct contra-
diction to what Newman claims
“all" other candidates have said.

On that same occasion Martin
distributed to members of the press
an issue paper stating that he would
put mayor expenditures before the
voters in the form of referendums.
In fact, Nick Martin has said that he
would make it his policy to have
frequent voter referendums before
government action is taken.

Mr. Newman may understand the
need to apply political labels to
himself, but he has not yet learned
the decent policy of representing the
truth accurately.

The recycling programs on cam-
pus in the past were not ended
because of lack of support. There
has always been widespread student
involvement and concern.

However, recycling has not al-
ways been a priority. TheEnviron-

energy for two years to stopping the

There’s not a doubt in Julian

But the most serious fault of this
writer is her unscrupulous appeal to
the reader‘s superstitions and mor-
bid anxieties. The last two thirds of
the article abound with melodra-
matic emotional cliches like, “But

Her experiences at the clinic are
carefully laced with negative, harsh,
exaggerated images: a teenager,
retching, pulsating spots on the

ceiling, lancing pain, etc, all mag-
nified by her hysteria.

What a pile of crap. The mystical
“certain feeling" she refers to is the
effect of hormones we can isolate
from tissues in a test tube. As for the
ridiculous and ludicrous picture of
her baby‘s “ghost" haunting her
whenever she sees the full moon (I),
etc, why doesn’t she think of her
mum three young children or hus-
band, and be thankful for the love
and beauty they have given her,
iratead of pining after a shadow of
herown imagining?

Surely, abortion for the sake of
idle convenience is deplorable. But
“convenience" is not always a
frivolOus consideration. Why doesn‘t
someone submit an emotional nar-
rative about marriages or careers
(buoyed by unplanned children?
About the misery and pain of

children raised by parents who don’t
want them or love them? Or about
theanguish of parents who realize to
their horror and confusion that they
are abusing their own children? The
mystique of conception, ceiling
spots, and ghost babies dwindle out
of sight in the face of these larger
sufferings. ‘

If a woman is to reach a respon-
sible decision on abortion, she
should make it herself, not accord-
ing to the ideas of others. Her
decision should be based on a
tlmugh understanding of herself
and her beliefs, not extraneous
emotionalistic propaganda, and she
shwld face the consequences of her

decision with courage and the
conviction that her choice is best for "

all concerned.
