Miss Shipley said, "to cover

The new structure would have

Special To The Kernel

The Western Kentucky Joint Technical Societies
Coordinating Council told the Governor's Science and Technology
Commission that an engineering college is sorely needed in the
Western part of the state.
The Governor's Commission was touring the area which is one
of the most highly industrialized in the state, but there are no
engineering schools there to supply the area with technicians
and scientists.
W. W. Ferguson, general foreman of the B. F. Goodrich plant
in Calvert City, suggested five improvements for the area:
1. An engineering college at Murray State University
2. A
program at Paducah Junior College.
3. Allowing advanced degrees from Murray to be completed
in Paducah.
4. Gearing area colleges to provide continuing education.
5. Improvement of high schools and vocational schools.

Revising Draft Will Be Difficult Tasl

By DARRELL CHRISTIAN
Kernel Staff Writer
When Congress looks for a new Selective Service law this session, it may
find it difficult to follow the recommendations of the White House Commis- And, according to two UK political
scientists, any new law will not be decided by what is best for the national
interest. It will be determined by public pressure.
The special commission, appointed
by President Johnson last fall, is expected to recommend this month gradual elimination of student deferments
and a lottery system for choosing its
manpower from a pool of all acceptmales. There

"National interest will not be considered
foremost. Every congressman is going

"The decision

is

to have to worry about the emotional
nature of the draft . . . what kind of
sense it makes in terms of his constituents."
Whatever form the new law takes,
predicts Prof. Bradley Cannon, "it will
be a hodge podge."
Congress has to act on the draft
before the present law expires June 30,
and it is shaping up to be one of the
hottest items on the Congressional agenda. Public pressure against the present
system has been mounting since United
States committments to the Vietnam war
bracket.
first climbed into the
Typical congressional conservatism,
political pressure with elections approaching and the diversity in Congress' composition make it apparent there will be
a lot of debate and a lot of amendments.
The student deferment issue is expected to be one of the major points
in the debate. Preliminary reports indicate it is the commission's most important conclusion, but the same sources
six-figu-

have revealed it passed that select group
by only a narrow margin at the last
meeting.

"It is going to be a close question,"
Prof. Cannon says, "Public pressure is
too great to prevent their (Congress)

considering it."
Dr. Marini, however, does not think it

will necessarily be so close.
It depends, he explains, on the concensus of each individual congressman's
constituency whether or not the majority
of this group involves college students.
"Being for student deferments could conceivably be a very unpopular stand," he
says.
"If a congressman votes to eliminate
student deferments, parents of college
students are on his neck; if he votes to
e

keep it, parents of
are on his neck, arguing that student
non-colleg-

deferments discriminate

against

their

sons.
College students, he notes, are in a
minority. "A congressman might also
take the view that the great protest

and peace movements are coming from
college students. He could say, 'Well,
we give them deferments so they can
protest against the war and foreign pol-

icy.' "
It must be recognized, though, that
these protestors are a minority among
students.
Prof. Cannon agrees with criticism
of the
deferment. "I oppose student
deferments as they now are. They lead
to exemption from the draft by either
marrying and having children while in
college or by going to graduate school
until age 26 (the practical cutoff point
for the draft)."
Congress has, as a rule, taken the
conservative road, backing up the customary and avoiding drastic changes.
Both professors agree this could have
a bearing on Congress action this ses2-- S

sion.
Congress would hesitate to make any
changes in present laws, Prof. Cannon
says. "Nothing is going to get through
Congress very easily."

IFC Nominations Made
Nomination of candidates for IFC offices was field Tuesday flight

Kpsilon, and Dave Hatterman, Phi Camma Delta.
The other candidates are Mickey Miller, Farmhouse, and Clen
Williamson, Lambda Chi Alpha, for vice president; Huss Ketcham,
Zeta Ik-tTan, and Khner Neuman, Kappa Alpha, for secretary;
and Krnie Harris, Phi Kappa Tau, and Mnrrell Porter. Alpha
Camma Rho, for treasurer.
The election w ill lx? held af the next meeting.
In other business, a motion was passed which lowered the
IFC dues from $3 to $2 er semester for pledges, and left the
active fee at $1.
According to Mickey Miller, treasurer, the action will relieve
some of the pressure on chapter budgets, and decrease the excess
reserves of the IFC account.
Kenneth Brandenburgh, assistant dean of men, told the IFC
to le on the look out for Norval Schultz who has been ojxrating
in the area. He has been taking orders for sweatshirts and then
leaving town.

been sharply criticized for mailing

"fraternity propaganda" letter
to parents of all incoming freshmen malesand the criticism is
fully justified.
Dean Hall described his letter
as "informational" in nature and
tone, explaining that its purpose
was to urge students to investigate one phase of campus life. That
would be fine if the facts bore
out the explanation; but they do
a

not.

First, if Dean Hall were interested in a fully objective perusal
of information about the fraternity
system, why did he send only a
booklet which is unquestionably
biased toward that system. The
booklet is entitled, "Should your
son join a Fraternity? Men who

speak from experience say YES!"
Somehow that doesn't suggest a
the kind of treatise we might call
objective.
Why- didn't Dean Hall send
out a pamphlet describing negative aspects of fraternity life, which
certainly exist, even to the admission of fraternity members? Of
course the pamphlet might be a
bit more creditable if it included
any data to support the claims of
those paragons of leadership and
scholarly wisdom like Tom Harmon
and Andrew Holt, president of the
University of Tennessee. But no
such data appeared. Instead the
parents are to be inspired by Sen.
Birch Bayh's words that the fraternity system is "a basic idea
-

pamphlet, entitled "Fraternity Life
at UK Starts Here and Never
Ends", is basically a localized
edition of the material mailed by
Dean Hall to parents.
Content of the pamphlet is undoubtedly public relations material
for the Creek system although Os-

wald, Johnson, and Hall do each
mention the question of individually deciding whether to join
a fraternity. Neither can the ethically doubtful technique of mailing the spiels home to parents
be charged about this publication.
But what can and definitely should
be seriously questioned is the whole

Afeting

The inclusion of Bayh's statement directly in Dean Hall's letter also makes it difficult to buy
his explanation of a purely "in-

formational" letter.
Given what is then an obvious
a much
fraternity
more serious question about the
philosophy of running a University
arises. Can an official office of
the University ethically endorse
one student group, recommending
the virtues of its membership? Ethically the question has a special
meaning for an office like the Dean
of Men, which though the misinformation may be unfortunate, is
likely to be taken as a post second
only to that of the president by
a parent. And as one faculty member has stated, such a view is all
too common among parents of college students.
Casting any considerations of
academic merit aside, endorsement
of the Greek system does a tremendous disservice to the student.
Were he inclined not to join dear
old dad's frat rat booze barrel
clan, he is left with hardly a leg
to stand on when he comes home
to hear, "See, the dean out there
says you'll really make it big if
you'll just join your ol' man's

team."
Furthermore, such an endorsement of fraternity like indirectly
suggests the independent student
is less likely to meet academic
success which hardly meets the

pedagogical test.

A Way

To End UK's Parking Problems

When it comes to the enforcement of speed limits on the Commonwealth's highways a double
standard seems to be applied. At
least such was the case when More-hea- d

State University's president
Adron Doran was cited by state
trooper Don Woodall for going GO
miles an hour in a 50 mph zone.
As a result, President Doran

was found guilty in court and
fined $10 in addition to $18 in
costs. Dr. Doran has sent a letter to Woodall's post commander
suggesting that Woodall "not be
assigned to active duty on the
campus of Morehead State University in the future."
He added, Woodall's action was

"unbecoming to the purpose of
which they (law enforcement officers) were appointed."
If this example may be considered a precedent, University students might hope that President
Oswald's car may be towed from
campus so that OK Garage will
be abolished forevermore. - -

this year's fashion may be the professors' demand to be permitted
not to grade their students.
At Yale, Prof. Robert Cook
announced that he would give all
students in his sociology seminar

the grade of "satisfactory" this
term after he had briefly considered acceding to a student vote

to give everybody a perfect score

of 100 to satisfy the university
regulation requiring numerical
grades.
At Cornell, Leonard Silver,
professor of mathematics, will
give his students only "S" or

"incomplete." The latter indicates that the student has not

master the material, but an "S"
will be substituted as soon as he
can show the competence.
And Columbia University last
week dropped from its English
Department Richard G. Tristman
who gave A's to his entire class
last term.
Why the rash of professorial
rebellion against grades?
Without a doubt, widespread
objections to the use of grades
to determine whether a student
should be deferred from military
service started the ball rolling.
Even many faculty members who
are not ready to abando nor sabotage the grading system feel that
the application of the academic

higher education.
But the objections, though
sparked by the draft, go deeper,
as the statements of the teachers indicate.
"To grade students is, in a"
sense, to treat them like products
in a meat market," Dr. Tristman
said. "I reject the assumption
that learning is a process of attaining goals and leaping hurdles."
The rebellion against grading
is, in part, a reaction against
excessive competition, for admission to prestigious colleges and to
the leading graduate schools.
academic observers
Most
admit that a mania for top grades
may harm education. In extreme
instances, it induces students to
take easy courses rather than more
meaty ones.
There is, however, another
element in the rebellion against
grading the old egalitarian romanticism which has ingrained
hostility, even revulsion, against
all
comparisons.
qualitative
Against thecompetitive"may the
best man win" concept, the romantics pit the idea that every
man shines inhisownway.Thus,
Tristman' s rejection ofgradingas
an instalment of the commodity
market.
Despite its nobility, the noncompetitive extreme raises some
very practical questions, including those of ultimate fairness.
If there must be some sorting,
for admission to the next higher
level of study or for job and
career placement, what happens
after everybody emerges with an
A or a "satisfactory" label, regardless of accomplishment or capacity?
