By LINDA IIOCKENSMITII
Samuel Johnson wrote 186 years ago, "Smoking has
gone out." Little did he know. Someone evidently rekindled it!
Smoking is one of the main hobbies, pleasures, nervous habits, and items of discussion on the campus
today. Coeds frantically stuff
cigarettes
their lit
into their purses as big brother strolls by, young masculinity casually puffs his pipe on the way to classes,
and professcis relish that final "drag" before their students pour Into the class room.
In the early part of this century, smoking was rather
unique. Side shows displayed what was known as the
"cigarette fiend," a pale, emaciated being who chainsmoked the
"coffin nails," and, as Tom Dooley,
was "bound to die."
The rcaiing 20s lit the female cigarette, nnd since
so-rail- ed

then, both sexes have Indulged in the pleasure-givin- g
vice.
Asked why he smokes, the UK student looks shocked
and gropes for an apparently Impossible answer.
One co-e- d
said, "I smoke so I won't eat." Another admitted that she started smoking so that she wouldn't
chew gum, this it.
Most of the boys seemed to agree that it was a nervous habit and gave them something to do with their

hands.
The most frequent response was "I like it," or "I
get satisfaction from it." These are logical, but indicate
that the populace has been reading the cigarette advertisements.
I think pipes are for those who want to be different;
cigarettes for tho.se who want to be like everyone else,
nnd cigars for those who want to run everybody out of

TK

the room.
Many of the boys, however, said they didn't smoke.
One told why: "No one to bum them from."
A non-filtloving co-e- d
felt that smoking was not
an unstoppable habit and to prove it, gave it up for Lent,
nut she also admitted that she was "looking forward
to the end of the month."
Perhaps the prime motivation of the smoker came
from a young man who said, "Conformity, I guess. I
smoke because everyone else does."
Thus the general reason for such revelry in "sublime tobacco" is written in the freshman hygiene text,
er

which lists sociability, custom and nervous habit.
Smoking is here to stay. The only problem: what if
we run out of tobacco? Fear not, future farmers, the
Blue Grass is fertile and hemp is growable!

Jones Answers NSA Editorial
To The Editor:
I wish to reply to your condemnation

of my speech on the National Student
Association by saying that your editorial
was characterized by omission of relevant material, outrageous distortions and

bareface lies.
You unjustly

refer to the speech as
"insidious propaganda," while you yourself had to resort to discrediting it because of the color of. the paper from
which I read. The fact that my quotations were taken from the actual minutes
of an NSA convention proves that they
accurately represent the policies of that
organization. My "flawless performance"
with "theatrical pauses and bombastic,
heavy-hande- d
stress," which you termed
"the result, seemingly, of many sessions
before tape recorder and mirror," was
prepared in the 15 minutes previous to
its delivery. I was fully aware that my
information was dated 1955, and did not
State or in any way imply that it came
from the 1958 convention, as you accused. Also, you quoted from a document which you claim I had in my hand
during the speech, and which I actually
have never seen.
Your statement that the information
was supplied by an organization looking to jtf own interests shows your lack
f understanding of accepted procedure
in Student Congress. It is the unquestionable right of any organization to speak
against or in favor of any proposed actions of Student Congress in order to
further its own interests and determine
whether other groups are in agreement

The Readers' Forum
Why Join NSA?
To The Editor:
Has the Kernel editor perhaps jumped
to conclusions in assuming that all those
who oppose UK's affiliation with NSA
do so because of its alleged Communist
dealings? While debate grows hot in
Student Congress and in Kernel editorials, the average student may raise
a meek hand to question: "Just what
is the advantage of being in NSA, any- vvav:

One finds himself almost carried away
by the controversy, ready to rise to the
defense of this mercilessly slandered organization, without questioning why we
should invest effort and money ($150?)
and a certain amount of autonomy in
becoming members.
The Kernel might do a real service
to the University if it would quit attacking SC and sorority members as
bigoted and ignorant, concede that much
opposition and apathy results from a
lack of information, and take steps to
remedy this. Perhaps an editorial pro-co- n
discussion by SC or Kernel staff members on each side of the fence would
at least let the rest of the campus in
on the debate.

(We appreciate and have followed
Reader Card's suggestion. Elsewhere on
this page is the Kernel's editorial interpretation of NSA's pros and cons, along
with a letter from Taylor Jones, Student
Congress representative who was Monday

with it. In this case, considering that
NSA received not a single vote in its
favor, it seems apparent that all delegates

present agreed on

the uselessness of

NSA.
You also said the same points stressed
in the "yellow sheet" were refuted dur-

ing a question and answer period conducted last week by NSA Vice President
Diane 'Hatch. Actually, Miss Hatch's
ambiguous, weasel-worde- d
explanations
of NSA policies only confused the members of SC until she finally refused to
answer any more questions so that she
might describe some bf the "positive"
phases of NSA. At the time she ended
the discussion, Miss Hatch had succeeded in refuting nothing to the satisfaction
of anyone other than herself. Understandably, it would be a difficult task
to refute arguments backed up by open
official policies of the organization in
question.
So anxious were you to discredit SC
with such phrases as "gutless wonders"
and ."the bigotry and ' ignorance
of
small minds" that you didn't even mention that NSA received a veto from all
but one delegate, and that it has been
vetoed several times in the past. It
seems more likely that if there is a
"small mind" involved, it belongs to
you. Could it be that the Easter season
has given you the idea that you are
vested with some Cod-lik- e
power which
entitles you to formulate policy for the
entire Student Congress?
