expressed satisfaction with the reception and results of their
petitions. '
"We have over 4000 signatures,"
President Bob Smith said. "I think
we've gotten an excellent response.
Organized gambling seems to have
disappeared from the campus."
Other members of the assembly
agreed with Smith. They reported
they had seen no parlay cards in
recent weeks.
Smith explained that SGA had
discarded the petitions posted on
bulletin boards. He said many of
these were facetiously signed Al
Capone, Frank Costello, and the
like. The 4000 signatures the group

Gardner Is Disappointed
Gardner said he was disappointed
by the lack of support given the
dance by assembly members. He
claimed only seven of the total
assembly came to the dance. There
are 25 members in SGA.
During the meeting. Bill Wilson
recommended that the assembly
send a letter to Coach Bryant commending him and the team on a
successful season. A resolution was
drawn up reading:

that the football team and Coach

third consecutive invitation to a

Faculty Ratines Discussed
Concerning the faculty rating
project, Jerry Bass said most of the
Commerce College teachers had
been rated. This week, members
will start rating teachers in Arts
and Sciences.
The Student Directory is still being typed. Jess' Gardner said the
procedure would have to be changed
next year. The directories were
supposed to be ready, according to
a previous report, immediately after
the Thanksgiving holidays.
Due to trouble with the typists,
the books haven't been sent to the
printers yet. Gardner said SGA did
its part they checked and alphabetized the cards. He said the bottleneck seems to be that the typists
can't read the writing on the cards.

Whether it's a violation of the
traditional parking regulations or
the enforcing of the new gambling
law on campus, the judiciary committee of SGA has the Job of seeing that the scales of justice are not
"found wanting."
A little research discloses that the
judicial committee is the SGA's legal arm. "A form of student government to handle judicial problems," was Dean Kirwan's concise
explanation.
The committee's membership is
limited to five students appointed
by the president of the SGA. Jack

Procedural Reforms Discussed
In Kentucky Law Journal Issue
f

t

A special symposium on proposed
procedural reforms in Kentucky's
civil code is featured in the November issue of the Kentucky Law Journal, scheduled to be issued today.
This issue, which discusses pro and
con the proposed changes in the
Kentucky Revised Statutes to be
considered by the forthcoming leg
islature, is the first issue in recent years devoted entirely to one
important aspect of our laws. Prof.
P. W. Whiteside, faculty editor of
the Law Journal, said.
In the opening article of the symposium. Judge Porter Sims of the
Court of Appeals, who is the chair man of the Civil Code Committee,
discusses the purpose of the proposed
revision.
"The Kentucky Civil Code Committee was created by the General
Assembly at its 1950 regular session.
The purpose was to improve civil
practice and procedure in the Commonwealth," Judge Sims writes.
Mentions Code Adoption
In pointing out that the present
code of civil practice was adopted in
1851. Judge Sims says:
"This issue of the Kentucky Law
Journal, coming on the one hundredth anniversary of the adoption
of the Code, presents a timely independent study of the College of Law
which should prove invaluable to the
profession. Especially is this true if
the efforts of the committee are put
into effect."
Among the articles is one by Judge
Alexander Holtzoff of the United
States District Court, District of
Columbia, author of many treatises
on federal procedure, and an expert
nationally on the new federal rules
of civil procedure. Prof. Whiteside
said.
Article Challenges States
This article presents the practice
in the federal courts as a challenge
to the various states to modernize
their court practice along similar
lines. The proposed reform of Kentucky's code is expected to follow

Proficiencies
Start Dec. 8
The Department of Physical Education will give proficiency examinations in sports, aquatics, and dance
beginning Dec. 8. Students must
pass both written and performance
tests in order to receive credit for
physical education requirements.
Tests will be given in apparatus
and tumbling (men only), archery,
badminton, basketball (women only), bowling, fencing, folk dancing,
golf, handball (men only), hocey
(women only), horseback riding,
modern dance, softball, swimming,
tennis, and volleyball.
Written tests for women will be
given in Frazee Hall, Room 106 at
1 p.m. Dec. 8. Women planning to
take the tests must sign up with the
secretary in the Women's Gym prior
to Dec. 6.
Men's written tests will be given
in the auditorium of the Euclid
Avenue building at 1 p.m. Dec. 8.
Those men who wish to take the
tests and who are not enrolled ir
physical education this semester
must apply to the secretary in
Alumni Gym prior to Dec. 6.
The schedule of performance tests
for the sports will be announced following the written tests. The scores
made on both the written and performance tests will be averaged to
determine the grade.
The Department of Physical Education suggests that students familiarize themselves with the history,
rules, and techniques of the specific
sports they intend to take tests in.

"The Physical Education Handbook"
by Seaton, Clayton, Leibee,
and

bookstore.

generally the plan adopted in federal
practice. Prof. Whiteside said.
"During the past hundred years,"
Judge Holtzoff writes in describing
the federal procedure, "vast strides
been made in advancing var- ious branches of substantive law in
order to adjust personal and prop-erty rights and liabilities to the
needs and conditions of the times
and to the changes in the social and
economic structure of society.
"In the 1870 s England led the
way by entirely jettisoning the sys- terns of common law and equity
pleading and completely revolutionizing judicial procedure in the civil
courts. In the United States, the
federal judiciary carried the torch
of reform.
Judge Holtzoff Cites States
"It is but natural since the federal
courts have had about twelve years'
experience with the new procedure,
that the States should inquire as to
the extent to which this reform has
been successful before undertaking
to adopt it," Judge Holtzoff says, in
citing at least six states where re- visions have been made.
The experiences of Missouri, which
has adopted a code modeled largely

upon the federal rules, is discussed
in an article by Prof. John J. Czyzak,
Washington University Law school.
Articles by other nationally known
members of the legal profession
elude an article by Prof. Edward W.
Cleary, an expert in the fields of
pleading and legal practice, discussing "The. Uses of Pleading"; an
article by Dean George N. Stevens
of the University of Buffalo School
of Law, offering a proposal for a
venue reform in Kentucky; and an

article by Amos-H- .
of the Judicial Council of Kentucky,
which discusses the heavy work load

Student members of the Law
Journal staff who contributed articles to the special symposium are
Cecil Walden, editor, and James D.
Cornette, associate editor; and Wil

koff. and Jack Lowery Jr.
About 1000 copies of the Law
Journal are published each issue.
"It is hoped the articles with different viewpoints will aid lawyers in
interpreting
various proposed
changes in our court procedure," Mr.
Whiteside said.

A faculty adviser is present at

adviser this year is Prof. W. H. Ham
of the law faculty. It is his job, to
use Prof. Ham's own words, "not to
try to influence . committee action,
but to serve as a steadying guide."
Meets On Monday
When in session at 4 p.m. every
Monday in the Dean of Men's office,
the judiciary committee considers all
matters brought to its attention
during the past week. Appeals concerning parking violations make up
the bulk of the business. These appeals average about five weekly.
From time to time the committee
must deal with more important
matters, such as gambling, a forged
parking permit, or an occasional
student caught in a raid out in

town. These offenses are dealt with
accordingly.
The powers of the judiciary committee range from a $1.00 parking
fine to expulsion from the University. In between are fines up to
$25, probation, and suspension from
the University for a semester.
Group Seating Discussed
Conflicts between students is another problem that comes under the
committee's jurisdiction. The case
last week involving Suky's failure
to provide group seating for the
Student Bar Association at the Tennessee game came under this power.
The meetings are conducted in a
very orderly fashion. The defendant, who has either been summoned
to appear before the committee or
has appealed his case, first states
his case before the committeemen.
If necessary he then answers questions the members might wish to
ask him. Then he leaves the room
while they decide the issue by a
simple majority vote. Then he is
recalled to receive the decision.

The Stew Pot

This Election Likely To Be
As Bad As Those Of Past
SGA election time is growing close again.
about
From all indications, those elections will
like those of the past, offering the student little
or no facts on which to lase his selection. SGA's
continual gripe alwmt lack of student interest
seems rather strange when you consider just
what the student has to get interested in.
First, let's consider the platforms. During the
last campaign, the United Students offered a
program and the Constitutionalists a
platform. Even though the platform
planks were nearly all restricted to promises to
investigate this or consider that, each party has
accomplished only one plank.
Even the two promises fulfilled failed to benefit the students a great deal. We have given
the United Students credit for their promise to
attain equal opportunity for representation of
all students. This Ls stretching the point a great
deal, but since the mere election of
k
members of the party to the Assembly broke the
monopoly that had prevailed in some
previous elections we conceded this point. The
one platform plank carried out by the Constitutionalists was the promotion of all student dances.
Both of these dances resulted in financial failure,
although the first offered some hope for their
eventual success.
Jt is easy to see from this that no matter what
promises the platforms might offer the student
he has no assurance that an attempt will be made
to carry them out. Of course, SGA. is not strong
enough for the parties to offer the students any
drastic changes, but they might include work

able plans for increasing the power of SGA.
Next, let's look at the candidates' qualifications. The average student when he prepares
to vote knows only two tilings alxuit the candidates, their standings and ac tivities. Just where
the candidates stand on the issues of interest to
students, or what knowledge of parliamentary
procedure they have, the average voter has no
way of knowing.
Political campaigns could include a few
speeches by candidates and a little more thorough listing of the candidates' backgrounds and
qualifications. Perhaps a round table discussion
by rival candidates could be held. These improvements wouldn't increase the cost to the
parties appreciably, but they would give the student a much better basis on which to make his
choices.

The University of Kentucky is located in the middle of the Gulf of
Mexico.
We have come to this conclusion
after reading a few issues of the St.
John's News. They make UK sound
so far in the South that it must be
in the middle of the Gulf.

In the Nov. 8 issue, the News replied:
"We were much surprised last
eek when a telegram arrived. . . .
This message probably refers to this
department's remarks on Herr Baron
Rupp and a sarcastic note in Tom
Kelly's 'Unpopular Opinions.' (How
did they guess?
"Apparently the editors of the
Kernel misunderstand our remarks.
In the words of Happy Chandler,
'ah just loves Kaintucky. It is the
Baron from the Bourbon State and the methods he employs (including winning over St.
John's, no doubt t that fall under
our fire and not the University of
Kentucky, the state of Kentucky, the
South, the Confederacy, Southern
womanhood, or any other institution
which the gentlemen from Dixie
hold dear."
Apparently the News has some
good sense, since it asked us to send
the Kernel each week. "And if they
wish to use Confederate stamps,"
they add, "we'll pay the postage due
when the post office refuses to
honor Jefferson Davis' memory."
They end by saying they are looking
for a Confederate flag for the office
and "Long Live Dixie!"
