By GUY MENDES

Associate Editor
Much has been said about the perpetuation of the plans and ideas of the
University's sixth president, John VV. Oswald, but there has been relatively little
discussion on the continuation of the
plans laid out by another top UK official
who, like Dr. Oswald, is leaving for
California.
Robert Johnson, vice president for Student affairs, leaves UK Monday to take
a similar position at the University of
California at Berkeley. If UK's university-student
relations are not to deteriorate, as they have at many schools, perhaps attention should be focused on
Johnson's plans for the Office of Student Affairs.
Johnson, who has headed the Office
of Student Affairs since its creation three
and a half years ago, speaks little of the
brief past of his office, but more of its
future.

He docs not linger on victories gained
by the Student Affairs Office such as
the development and establishment of
the Student Rights Code which disavowed
the idea of the In Loco Parentis doctrine.
And he speaks only briefly on the failures
of his office "the inability to help students develop a viable, forceful student
government" and the failure to recruit
black basketball players, two which he
noted.

He prefers to speak of what is to
come.
"Students want to relate their education to the world around them . . . that's
where student affairs ought to be busy,"
Johnson said yesterday.
"It's a transformation from the old
days of discipline, handing out loans
and scholarships," Johnson said, "Student Affairs is now in an ideal position
to take the whole range of extracurricular
activities and, working with students,

transform it into a first rate educational

experience."

He added that a "successful bridge"
has not been made with the faculty yet.

With the completion of the

the University will be issuing
only 20 percent more parking

The 20 percent allows for the
fact that not everyone with a

At present there are 1028 "A"

Sports Center parking lot which
for the first time is a lettered

"We are able to control the
parking at the Sports Center because of the new campus buses,"
explained Col. Dempsey, pointing out the route of the bus on
a large wall map of the campus.
University lots are restricted
to cars with stickers only between the hours of 7 a.m. and
5 p.m. Monday through Friday
and 7 a.m. and 12 noon on
Saturday. The lot on Administration Circle is the only exception. It remains restricted until

Auditions for "Three Men On A Horse," one of the great comedy
hits of the 30's, will be held in the Culgnol Theatre at 7:30 p.m.
Aug. 30 and Sept. 3 in the Guignol Theatre.
Prof. Raymond Smith will direct this play which will be the
opening guignol production of the 1968-6- 9 season University Department of Theatre Arts.
John Cecil Holm and Ceorge Abbott, authors of the play,
provided roles for 11 men and four women.
n
The play's plot revolves around the peculiar talents of
Trowbridge, the principal character, who earns his mundane
livelihood by writing Mother's Day verses. Finally, fed up with
his routine suburb-to-offic- e
life, Erwin goes to a saloon instead
of to his office. There he falls in with a trio of professional horse
bettors. As it happens, Erwin's hobby is "doping" the races, and
his "picks" always win. The horse players, realizing what a gold
mine they have in Erwin, decide to exploit his talent.
After numerous complications, threats, etc., Trowbridge decides to return to his wife, home and professions, content to be
a poet.
Scripts are available in Room 114, Fine Arts Building. All
interested persons are invited to audition for the play which
will be performed October 11, 12, 20, and 21.

Artists Throw New Light

Light art is reaching a new
importance. The opposite of light
is considered dark. So, to keep
art out of the dark, advance
guard experimenters are applying
artificial light to the problems of
creating an object or image.
The use of artificial light by

has included sign-lik- e
neon tubes in some of her work.
"Time Columns The Sound
of Light," by Howard Jone's, was
the work that drew objections
from another artist, Dan Flavin.
Jones' work consists of five
vertical columns of colored neon
light which flash irregularly. The
circuits which control the lights
also give off electronic wails and
squeals at intervals. It is the only
work in the show that includes
sound.
Flavin had prepared an empty
room by lighting it dimly with
purplish flourescent lines along
the baseboards and in the corners. The effect was like that of
"black light" which makes certain colors in the spectator's
clothing stand out garishly.
The other individuals prominent in the field are Stephen
Antonakos, Stanley Landsman,
Preston McClanahan and Boyd
Mefferd.
Antonakos' "Red Neon from
Wall to Floor" H a huge set of
geometrically arranged neon tubes which turn on and off at
irregular intervals.
Landsman has created eight
separate works, each utilizing
a form of electric

with mirrors, which create depth
and width.
McClanahan has discovered
that plexiglas conducts light, and
has arranged four arcs of edge lit
plexiglas in a circle.

breed a new format, but the new
esthetic framework provides a
new challenge.

A Welcome Death
The decision by the Housing
Office not to enforce compulsory

campus housing this year for sophomores is welcome, but

the

Uni-

discredited and disclaimed by the
administration.
The students who will suffer
most from the confusion of this
ruling are those who applied for
campus housing, not desiring it,
but thinking they would be forced
to take it. It is impossible to determine how many students fit this
category, but perhaps they now
should be allowed to break their
contracts and obtain private housing if they still desire it. Perhaps
mid-terwould be a good time
to again offer them this opportunity.
The other students hurt by the
housing confusion, those 150 persons now living in temporary facilities and cramped rooms, hopefully will be given better quarters
as soon as possible, and the dormitories can again begin to operate
as normal.
It is a credit to the University
housing facilities that so many
upperclass students applied for
campus housing, and now maybe
the University has seen the light
and will take action to guarantee
that the compulsory housing ruling
for sophomores is never enforced.
Then maybe it should consider

versity cannot be given full credit.
Apparently, the large number of
unexpected upperclassmen seeking
such housing helped prevent students from being saddled with an
unneeded extension of the in loco
parentis philosophy.
The fact that between 600 and
700 sophomores are living off campus now, without having gained
permission from the Housing Office
to do so, and about another 100
asked and received that pennission,
is testimony to the unpopularity
of the
Board of Trustees ruling. The expressed furor of
some students last year and the
decision by Stuent Government
to take legal action against compulsory housing also affirm that
position.
But even if it had been popular, the compulsory housing ruling
was regrettable for another reason.
While it is true that dorm living
can be a part of the "total University experience," as the administration claims, requiring students
to gain that experience is an example of the educational logic long whether compulsory freshman

To the Editor of the Kernel:
As a member of the University community, f would like to question the
recent statement made by Wallace Bryan,
Student Government President. His announcement that the student body supported the appointment of Charlie Brad-shato the position of athletic director
was not substaniated by factual information. To my knowledge, a student
referendum on the question was not taken;
therefore, VVally could not speak for the
student body. Apparently he imposed
his personal opinion on the student body.
I do not believe this to be one of the
privileges of his office. His statement
was printed in local newspapers and
announced on local radio stations. The
statement remains uncontested.
I would ask that the Kernel, as well
as the student body, expose this abuse
of the office and that Mr. Bryan be asked
to publicly retract the statement until
he can substantiate it with the true
student opinion taken in a student-bod- y

Last week, when Chicago was girding
itself for the Democratic National Convention, a ride through that city's South

Side would have been most revealing
as to what this country is all about for
millions of its citizens. The South Side
is Chicago's Harlem, the Black community
which erupted at the death of Martin
Luther King, the Black community which
lias to put up with Mayor Richard
Daley's police force.
Watching the Chicago Police Depart"
ment is an experience in
communication, for without saying a word,
non-verb-

you are made to understand very clearly
that the Chicago cop would just as soon
shoot you as look at you. Probably they
are also verbal; moreover their word
choices are probably extraordinary.
The South Side also puts up with
other things that white, middle class
communities aren't burdened with. The
kids along Garfield Boulevard, for instance, go to Head Start classes in an
armory. They lounge around on the steps,
play in the front yard, make the building
seem almost like a real school. Meanwhile,
on the asphalt lot in the back of the
building, reservists clean up their tanks,

who drives past probably wouldn't
that we're spending money for
only due against Russians.

In fact, nobody's making any attempt
to hide the fact that there are thousands
of soldiers in and around Chicago, or
that they are there to keep the "antiwar love hippies" and the "bad niggers"
down. As Mayor Daley said at the convention, as long as he's mayor, there
will be law and order in Chicago.
So the Democratic Convention started
as scheduled, and it will probably even
finish as scheduled. There are enough

cops and soldiers in the city to keep the
convention site safe, and so it really
doesn't matter that the whole city is
kept in law and order by cannons and
machine guns. Clued to the television
sets, we'll never see it, except for brief

instances on news breaks. Some white
Cliicagoans may see it if they look around
as they drive through the South Side, but
the Black people in the South Side have
to live with it every day. If they should
decide to tell us what it is like, there
will be a terrible beauty bom Chicago
that not even Mayor Daley will fully
comprehend or control.

Dollars Opening Doorways For Students
Va rious Funds Resolve
UK Student Dilemmas
The
income family in Kentucky might very well find
itself in a hind if the family has as many as two college-boun- d
children and hasn't prepared for the added financial burden through
savings or other arrangements.
There is help for such families at the University of Kentucky, but
the increase in the number of students at UK has put additional
pressure on the Office of Student Financial Aid.
James Ingle, administrator of the office, said that UK estimates
a student who is a Kentucky resident needs $1,650 to meet expenses
for an academic year-ab- out
10 months.
residents
need $2,350. Kentucky students pay $280 a year in fees,
students pay $980.
"Add $880 for room and board on the
plan;
about $100 for books, and $400 for incidentals such as laundry,
sundries and possibly a weekly date, multiply by two college
students in the family, and you have $3,300, or more than one-thiour average family's income. These estimates do not include clothing," Ingle added.
The Office of Student Financial Aid does not assist only those
from multiple student families, however. Ingle says "our operating
philosophy is based on the ability of the family to pay, which
would include consideration of the number of children in a family."
Incoming freshmen must apply for financial aid during the
previous winter. Applications are provided each Kentucky high
school by UK in November. "In this way, the student counselors
can help the student prepare the application, which must be accompanied by the parents' confidential financial statement," Ingle
points out.

analysis is made of the family's resources to determine what the student and his family can pay. This figure is subtracted from the total estimated expenses, to arrive at the amount
of financial aid the student will need. The Office of Student Financial Aid then looks at the various aid programs available to
the student to see which can provide the most benefits.
There are the institution scholarships "which go to those showing
the highest promise, but who also must show need," Ingle said.
Such unrestricted grants have grown from eight or ten of $500
or more to around 75 since 1960.
There are the Educational Opportunity Grants provided by the
1965 Higher Education Act, which provides gift assistance to students from families that cannot be expected to contribute more than
$625 to the student's education. The amount of such a grant
is $800, or half the student's need, whichever is smallest. UK
must provide through its other programs the remaining half, or
an amount equal to the federal grant.
A student might receive help through the
program,
A scientific

in which he can earn $1.25 or more an hour for a maximum of
15 hours a week in certain types of work on campus, or he may
receive assistance in finding a job either on campus or in Fayette
County private industry.
UK also participates in the National Defense Education Act
student loan program, in which the undergraduate student may
borrow up to $1,000 in one academic year and begin to pay it
back within 10 months after he leaves school. Part of these loans
are written off for students who become teachers in designated
h
