A chat with the Tennessee rocker

Charlie Daniels' show at ltupp Arena
Friday night. was aided and abetted by

We slipped backstage between Charlie
Daniels Band’s last two songs. “Orange
Blossom Special“ and “Uneasy Rider.“
The road crew and others lucky enough to
have stage passes seemed exhilarated by
the band’s performance—justifiably so.

i spated concert promoter Stephen
Gudis. who was exceedingly jovial despite
reportedly low ticket sales. Good-naturedly
evading the question, he refused to confirm
semi-reliable reports that sales fell 2.500
short of the break-even point.

“Yeah. we lost some money on this, but

don't worrv. We'll be bringing Charlie
Daniels back here again sometime," said
(ludis of Entam. Ltd., the Charleston, W.
\’a.. outfit which also promoted the Doobie
Brothers concert at Rupp Arena last fall.

Asked to speculate on the Marshall
Tucker Band-Pure Prairie League Concert
Entam, Ltd. has scheduled at the arena
Jan, 1!), Gudis said ticket sales should be
better if Lexington thaws out a hit.

As the concert ended. Chariie Daniels
and the boysdescended from the bandstand
and received hearty backslaps from their
ferociously loyal road crew.

After signing autographs for a cluster of
teenagers, Daniels consented to an in-
terview. “Just give me 10 minutes or so to
settle down. darlin‘.“

Fifteen minutes later, promoter Gudis
led us to a small. mirrored dressing room,
strewn with empty Budweiser cans, where

Daniels and some of the band had settled
down to relax.

in sharp contrast to their highenergy
performance, the band was subdued. Asked
about the night’s set. Daniels said he was
“just content. l feel like my day’s work is
done to my contentment.”

The band members were uniformly
unimpressed at the prospect of performing
at one of Jimmy Carter’s inauguration
parties this Thursday in Washington, 0.0
They view it as first another stop, though
slightly more prestigious than most, in
their grueling concert schedule.

“I’m not politicalatall,” said Daniels. “I
wouldn‘t want to be associated with any
politicians in the world right now with the
exception of Jimmy Carter—him l’ll vouch

hour-and-a-half show in the middle of a
hectic tour.

The band's two buses had rolled into
Lexington early Friday from Terre Haute,
lnd. In just three hours the whole crew was
to leave for Johnson City, Tenn, for a
Saturday night concert.

But not before a little partying and more
music. Daniels said an old band member,
EarlGrigsby. had arranged for him to sit in
with some local musicians at Lexington‘s
Camelot Lounge.

Gov. Julian Carroll placed the

cord - breaking low temperatures
blasted the state.

Carroll asked Kentuckians to stay
in their homes during the unusually
frigid weather unless traveling was
absolutely necessary.

“A lot of people get out on the road
in this weather and they get strand-
ed when thev have no business being
out there. ' said John Nichols. the
governor's press secretary. Nichols
said State Police will increase their
patrols on Kentucky‘s primary high-

ways. “thus improvmg the chances
of stranded motorists being spotted
and assisted.’

He said emergencies. such as loss
of heat in homes. should be reported
to the State Police. which then would
coordinate assistance efforts with
DES personnel.

Nichols also reiterated that the
governor has asked Kentuckians to
conserve energy in view of an
apparent natural gas shortage this

State police said ““34 if any,

Cats snap back;
Auburn .jinx fails

Assistant Sports Editor

Portions of this article were taken
from the broadcast of radio station

()ne down and one to go.

By beating Auburn Saturday, 75-
68, coach Joe Hall’s Kentucky
Wildcats are half way through a
toughSoutheastern Conference road
trip that concludes tonight in
Gainesville. Fla.

To say thatthe win at Auburn was
crucial to Kentucky‘s SEC title
hopes is like saying Julius Erving
has a nice dunk shot.

Kentucky beat the Tigers of coach
Bob Davis on their home floor for the
first time in four years because its
shooting improved —to a lukewarn
44.9 per cent— because it played
more aggrtssive defense than in
recent games AND because it held
onto a lead in the late going, despite
a furious Auburn press.

When the Cats missed their first
five shots. it looked as if they hadn’t
shaken the slump in which they hit a
miserable 32.9 per cent against

Butby hitting five of six attempts
in one flurry, UK shot to a 10-2 lead,
causing Auburn to call timeout

The Tigers quickly regained their
comptsuie and the rest of the half
was nip and tuck. Kentucky took a
39-37 lead into the locker room,
thanks to Mike Phillips‘ 10 points.

Kentucky opened a six-point
margin. 4943. but Auburn caught up
at 51 apiece when guard Eddie
Johnson hit a driving shot.

While Kentucky was busy missing
open layups, Johnson scored on
another driving move that left UK‘s
Jay Shidler guarding air. Johnson's
partner ‘at guard. Stan Pietkiewicz.
hit a pair of free throws to give the
Tigers a 55-51 lead.

With Auburn collapsing on Ken-
tucky's Rick Robey in the middle,
[any Johnson and Jack Givens hit
from the outside to tie the score.
llobcy put UK ahead to stay with a
stuff shot, 61-59, with 8:26 to play.

When Givens hit a jumper
moments later, Kentucky hada 66-60
advantage, butAubum quickly drew
within two.

Aubum‘s Eddie Johnson fouled
Kentucky’s Larry, who hit both free
throws, and Givens came up with a
pair of baskets to widen the lead to
72-64 at 1:37.

Unlike in the Tennessee loss,
Kentucky managed to hold onto the
ball and kill the clock— a minor

The road victory kept the Wildcats
in SEC cmtention, improving their
slate to or in the conference and 10-2
overall. Tennessee and Alabama
remain urbeaten in league play.

Auburn dropped to 1-4 and might
as well start thinking about next
fall‘s football season.

Jack Givens partially regained his
shooting touch. hitting on 10 of 20
from the field for 20 points.

Phillips finished with 13 as did
Larry Johnson and Robey added 12.
Substitute guard Truman Claytor hit
double figures for the first time this
year with 10.

Starter Jay Shidler, who played
only 12 minutes. missed on all four of
his "white lightning“ bolts from the
outside and had trouble keeping up
with Aubum‘s veteran guards.

Claytor, who impressed coach
Hall with his defense, may have
earned a starting assignment
against Florida.

“Truman picked us up." Hall said.
"His defense on Johnson was out-
standing. Johnson and Pietkiewicz
are the key to Aubum‘s game and
they didn‘t totally kill us."

Johnson led Auburn with 18 points
and Pietkiewicz had 14. Pepto
Bolden added 15, but leading scorer
Mike M itchell was held to only eight.
He had scored 69 points in his last
two games.

Kentucky stayed with its man-to-
man defense almost all the way.
“We're trying to bring it (defense)
back,” Hall said. “You‘ll see us stay
with it longer until it gets sound."
Hall was especially pleased that
his team outrebounded Auburn’s
leapers by a margin of 46-33.
“Givem led us with 13. Somebody
ought to pin a medal on him for
outrebounding Auburn. Rebounding
definitely won the game.“

Auburn coach Bob Davis said,
“Our old magic has run out on
Kentudty. We played about as well
as we are going to play. it looks like.

“We didn‘t dothe extra things that
it takes to win."

Three Wildcats almost didn‘t
make it to Auburn—or anywhere

Guard Dwayne Casey was driving
his car to Lexington‘s Bluegrass
Field Friday morning for the flight
to Auburn, with Rick Robey and
Larry Johnson as passengers, when
the car hit ice and went out of con-

The car left the. road, plowed
through a fence, rolled over as it
headed down an embankment and
came to rest upright The three were
shaken up but walted away with
only minor arts and sore muscles.

Joe Hall was relieved that the

three escaped injury and en-

couraged by the team’s play at

Thorium: the future fuel?


Almost invariably, the topic of
nuclear fuel brings up a discussion
. of uranium. But there exists another
nuclear fuel of equal potential-—

This fertile material-fuel from
which fissile material can be
made has become significant only


during the past decade. Thorium
fuel has not benefitted from proper
rcsearch— largely because it hasn’t
been recognized as a viable fuel

As everybody knows. the nuclear
age was suddenly ushered in after
the successful weapons program
developed during «Werld war ‘II'.’
Uranium contains the only naturally

'occurring fissile isotope, U-235, in
very very small amounts. This was
one of the isotopes that was used in
nuclmr weapons.

lligh purity Plutonium-239 (Pu-



239), which is used for'the same
purpose, was obtained from special
typts of reactors. But these reactors
required Uranium 235 to function.
Therefore, great effort was invested
to obtain U-235 from natural

After the war, an intensive effort
was needed to develop nuclear
technology for commercial use-
energy production. But that need
was very much reduced with
documentation of pertinent
knowledgeabouturanium fuel. So, it
seems the new enthusiasm during
the 1950‘s directed every effort in the
nuclear f icld toward development of
uranium technology.

But with the spectacular
development nuclear power plants,
the need for nuclear fuel resources

wvas well recognized in light of the
enormous energy needs in the
future. Scientists knew that fertile
materials (Uranium-238 and
Thorium-232) could be transformed
by neutron irradiation into fissile
materials tPlutonium-239 and

material is essential for the func-
tioning of a nuclear reactor.

Thorium as plentiful as Uranium

Geologic surveys have shown that
as much thorium resources exist as
uranium resources; large amounts
of the material being rcquircd for a
viable industry. Also, accurate
experiments tn different
laboratories across the country
thttis Atomic Power Laboratory,
Oak Ridge National Laboratory,
Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory)
showed that breeding could be
achieved in thermal light water
reactors using the Th-232-U-233 fuel

But, I think the major push to
thorium technology came in late

1965 when the Atomic Energy'

Commission approved Vice Admiral
llG. Rickover‘s recommendation to
develop a light water breeder
reactor t'LWBR). This project in
essence involves replacing the
uranium core of an existing
pressurized water reactor with
thorium fuel and practically
determining whether breeding is

(‘urrcnt reactors sufficient

There are many advantages from
this program. For many years in the
future, the utility industry will be
committed to basing the expanding
nuclear industry on water reactors;
so there will be great reluctance by
the utilitics to change to other types
of reactors. The utilities will not
have much difficulty when they have
to change to thorium fuel with the
same reactors, because during the
life of a reactor the fuel is
replenished many times anyway.

The LWBR is the only breeder-
convertor reactor system that
promises significant improvement
in fuel utilization while avoiding
many of the problems that must be
solved to obtain high fuel utilization
in other types of reactors. The
LWBR development will be of much
use to countries rich in thorium
resources, which, apart from the
US, include Brazil and India.

The one important technical
problem assoc ta fed with the thorium
fuel cycle is tire to the high
radioactivrty of the spent fuel. I
believe that remote reprocessing
technology will solve the problem.

Thorium needs full-scale research

Though it is possible to obtain
breeding in uranium with
plutonium-239. one. has to go into fast
reactors which have not been
commercially developed. Though
plutonium obtained from com-
mercial reactors. due to its being
impure, cannot be used for making
weapons, there are other social and
technical problems associated with
a large scale plutonium economy.

With the above two important
points in favor of Tlr-232-U-233 I
believe that full scale research ef-
fort should be channelled towards
the development of thorium fucl

ALCOR in eighth year
Of Appalachian service

Kernel Staff Writer

This. summer, at six
Kentucky colleges, the Ap-
palachian Leadership and
Community Outreach, Inc.
(ALCOR) willbegin its eighth
year of providing community
service for families in rural
Appalachia. '

ALCOR is a non-profit
organization founded at Alice
Lloyd -. College in Pippa
Passes, Ky., in 1969.

It gained corporate status
in 1970, and by 1971 was
serving 20 Kentucky counties
from six college campuses.

In addition to Alice Lloyd,
ALCOR has cooperative
agreements with Cumberland
College (in Williamsburg),
Hazard Community College,

cessible mountain com.
munitis.‘ .

The students work in a
network ‘of‘.67 community
centers, which are spread
throughout Appalachia.

According to Jack Burch,
ALCOR president, the
majority of students em-
ployed are undergraduates at
either UK, theUniversity of
Louisville _or Eastern Ky.

The students are also
primarily local residents,
and, as Such, liaVe little
trouble gaining acceptance in
the communities to which
they are assigned.

The students perform
various kinds of work in one
or more of six outreach

The programs include
community development,

and welldefined set of goals.

These goals are based on
utilization and development
of resources (human and
otherwise), development of
community leadership and
provision of social and con-
sumer servrces.

ALCOR receives funds
from an impressive array of
private and public sources,
including Kellogg, Upjohn,
Western Electric, Ford Motor
Company and the Rockefeller
Foundation. Additional funds
come from the state attorney
general's office.

In the coming months,
ALCOR will be accepting and
screening applications for 20
available health care
positions which need to be
filled for this summer‘s
program. Openings are
available for health
