Kilpatrick kicks off Creason lecturesm"

Kernel Staff Writer

Millions of Americans roll out of
bed every mining to the tune of the
Today show jingle, a cup of
steaming coffee and James J.

Then, in the editorial pages of
their morning dailies. they read the
conservative, stubborn-headed
prose of Kilpatrick's nationally
syndicated column, “A (‘on-
servative View."

And they like it.

Kilpatrick is one of America‘s
most popular columnists. Even his
political opposites grudgingly admit
that the man is a master of the
English language.

First speaker for series

For this reason. Kilpatrick was
invited to be the first speaker for the

Joe (reason Lecture Series last
night»a memorial series financed
by the UK Alumni Association and
the Binglmm Foundation. Creason
was a pqrular columnist for the
Courier-Journal before his death in

Kilpatrick also spent most of the
(lay talking to journalism students
and fielding the inevitable questions
about “What‘s really going on in
Washington?" He talked about the
business of joumalism he loves and
the chances anyone else has of
getting into it.

And after spending nrost of the day
around him, one thing becomes
clear. James “Kilpo” Kilpatrick is a

his involvement in the anti-war

UK will be the loser


if Singletary leaves

Before Gov. Julian (‘arroll presented his
Executive Budget to the General Assembly last
Febniary. he announced that the “Golden Age“
of higher education was over.

He reduced the total funding for higher
education and increased the funding for
secondary and elementary education.

With state money becoming tighter, the eight
statesupported universities had scrambled for
every dollar they could: UK President Otis A.
Singletary wasn't pleased. He was concerned
that [K was being slighted at the hands of the
l'niversity of Louisville.

It wasn‘t the first time he had wrestled with
the l'K v t,‘ of L dilemma. And, of course. it
wasn't the last.

In fact, the (‘ouncil on Public Higher
Education‘s recent meeting to discuss its
statement on the mission and roles of the state
institutions again brought the controversy to

The council designated L7 of L as the states
only urban university; UK retained its
designation as the primary state institution.
Singletary again launched into a philosophical
discussion of L'K's position in the state as
compared to U of L. He sees this university
getting the shorter end of the stick.

But now the Ti'i-y'earold administrator may
receive an offer which would take him to
\t‘ashiongton I).C. and away from the

If he survives investigative checks, President
(‘arter will probably submit Singletary’s name
if) the Senate for confirmation as the chairman of
the National Endowment for the Humanities.

If the position is offered to Singletary and he
accepts. he would have to resign as UK

He would. however, be retuming to familar
ground. Former President Lyndon B. Johnson
named Singletary as the first director of the Job
('orp in t964. He held that position for little over a
year. ' '

But no one seems quite sure whether he will
accept the job. Two years ago, when he received
a lucrative offer to be president of Southern
Methodist University. he fooled many when he
stayed in chington.

We know Singletary will consider what effects
his leaving would have on the University before
coming to a decision either way. But in light of
the tenuous nature of higher education in the
state-and in particular UK‘s uncertain
positionvb'ingletat'y continued presence would
provide needed continuity and stability in the on-
going battle.

It probably would he too much to ask him to
refuse (‘arter’s offer, but it must be pointed out
that his departure would do little good for the
l'nivcrsity. He‘s been able to balance the
demands of the council and the Board of
Trustees with the needs of students.

It is a special talent that will be hard to

Not a bad record for a man whose

and interesting enough for the

'l\vo of Marx's books were coin-
pleted in 1976 when he was 8:") years
old. Presently tit}. he is perhaps this
nation's best-known entertainer. He
has survived in the entertainment
field since his entry into vaudeville
at age H in 1905. This in itself is
quite an aCcomplisfiment.

His popularity has been at its
greatest among the young—four
generations of them with the pre-
sent generation perhaps his greatest
admirers. No less than a score of
books have been written about this
man in the past quartercentury.

In 1975 a poll of incoming college
freshmen revealed that after Jesus
(‘hrist and Albert Schweitzer.
Groucho Marx was their most
admired man The same year. a poll
of students showed that after Henry
Kissinger. Marx was the most
sought after college lecturer.

Why should I'K not be the first
university to honor this man‘.’ While
he is not one of our great benefac~
tors. he has contributed much to the
students of this institution. As
evidence. l offer in part the fact that
his films are shown each year on this


campus and virtually every showing
isa sellout. tine would be hard put to
find a student or alumnus who is not
a Groucho Marxian.

As Hector Arce wrote in his
Introduction to The Groucho Phile in
August 1976:

“What I do ask is why a man who
has spoken so eloquently to the
yotmg of four generations. who has
become a college of one and taught
himself to become a cultured and
educated man. has never received
an honorary degree from any col
lege or universrty. At this writing, no
degree has been awarded him. It‘s


an irony and injustice that he should
be so ignored when he is one of a
handful of men in the world who
truly needs no Introduction."

Idaresay Marx is more deserving
of an honorary degree than are some
of the individuals to whom UK has
awarded the honor -- those who have
and have not contributed greatly to
the Commonwealth. It is up to some
university to grant this long overdue
honor to Marx. Why should UK not
take the initiative?

Few heroes left

‘ 691th MKCtKer‘fiNTLYt’”

Kilpatrick makes the grade

The few heroes I have never seem
to cross my meager personal path—
or even touch it from a distant
lecturer’s podium. Yesterday,
however, I had the heady experience
of finally meeting in the flesh a bona






fide personal hero——a man I have
professionally respected from afar
for several years.

He is James J. Kilpatrick, a
columnist syndicated in 370
newspapers under the title “A
(‘onservative View.“ Mr. Kilpatrick
came to UK yesterday to deliver a
lecture about his trade.

Some of you might know of him as
“Jack“ Kilpatrick of “Point-
(‘ounterpoint“ fame on CBS‘s 60
Minutes. But Mr. Kilpa trick is a self-
described “print-man," and so I
prefer to reject the flashy TV tag of
"Jack“ and just think of him as
“James J.“

During the afternoon I had the
chance to shake his hand and have a
little polite conversation with him.
The thrill of talking to this talented,
nationally-known writer was a

foreign one to me; it was an ex-
pcrience almost larger than life, the
kind that usually causes you to do
something embarrassing like drool
down your chin when you’re trying
to impress the guy.

Aside from the strange enjoyment
of meeting my favorite columnist—
despite the fact that I don’t agree
with him much of the time—the
meeting gave me pause to think that
it‘s too bad people these days don‘t
have many heroes.

Maybe the cause of this demise of
popular idoldom is television‘s over-
exposure of important figures, or
maybe it’s just the fast pace of life.
I 'ou Id be that the whole thing is a by-
product of this. the “Me-decade”—
the label that author Tom Wolfe has
put on the recent craze for personal
turning-inward. The “Me-decade"
has emerged in the forms of TM.
yoga, est. and a variety of other self-
conscious—some say selfish—

The biggest homes of this decade
do seem to be Mb, Myself and I. It‘s
no wonder there aren‘t many
popularly acclaimed ones anymore.

Sometimes fault must be laid at
the feet of those who might be the
heroes; a few of them think so much
of themselves that there's no need
for the public’s adulation.

As an illustration. take a look at
that bastion of American hero-

worship, the world of professional
baseball. A few short years ago,
Mickey Mantle at least projected the
image of having more love for
baseball than money. Today, Pete
Rose does not.

Although he may be in the right,
Rose‘s salary problems hold no
interest for me because, well, that’s
his battle to light, not mine. The
pitfallsof life that most ofus regular
peons face from time to time are
hard enough to keep up with, much
less Pete Rose‘s.

And this is my point. Heroes and
hem worship are supposed to lift our
thoughts away l‘rom- not embroil us
in——the mundane drudgery of things
like contract disputes.

That‘s what meeting Mr.
Kilpatrick did for me. Shaking
hands with someone hasn‘t given me
goose bumps in a long time—maybe
never. But shaking James J.’s hand
did that for me, just like watching
Aaron hit a homer used to do for me,
just like watching Rose slide a
trench into homeplate does for some
people now.

I can‘t say I would have felt that
way if Rose had won his contract
dispute. That ain‘t the stuff heroes
are made of.

we’ve certainly reached a point
where it‘s not hard to see we've got
plenty of room for improvement.

The purpose of this letter is not to

project someone who I think can go a
long way towards solving some of
these problems.

that person is Joe Graves.

aren‘t getting any brilliant ideas.

In Joe Graves, I can truly see a

MOSCOW—In the article
published in The New York
Times (Op-Ed page, Feb. 23)
Sergei Gusev, Deputy Prose-
cutor General of the Soviet
Union, stated the official
position of the Soviet Union's
repressive organs in regard
to me personally and, indir-


ectly, to other dissidents, and
he strove in particular to
emphasize the independence
of this position from inter-
ference of “Western protect-

Mr. Gusev’s article was
written shortly after the pub-
lication of the letter to me
from the President of the
United States. J. Carter, and
obviously was a reaction to
that letter. I am confident
that no one in the West,
including President Carter.
will allow himself to be
diverted from the chosen path
of principle, that of active
defense of human rights
throughout the world, which
is a matter of decisive im-
portance for the future of'
mankind. Mr. (iusev‘s letter
was an obvious attempt to
test the firmness of this
position in the West.

The reason for my being
summoned to the office of the
Prosecutor General of the
Soviet Union was my appeal
to world public opinion con-
cerning the explosion in the
Moscow subway and other
unsolved crimes. Mr. Gusev
expounds tendentiously on
my statement, but maintains
total silence about my'line of

lnhis article, a month and a
half after the explosion. he
gives no information whether
this crime is under investi-
gation. Gusev also evades by
silence the question whether
an investigation is being con-
ducted into five cases of
murder that I wrote about in
my statement.

During the conversation in
the prosecutor's office. I said
thatl would be fully satisfied
if, as a result of my decla-
ration, there would be a
careful and objective investi-
gation and that no innocent
persons suffered. I can only
repeat these words once
again. I was aware, of course,
that my speaking out in this
way would entail grave con-
sequences for me and the



members of my family. But I
felt that I did not have the
right to keep silent.

Mr. (iriscv quotes from the
United States Code, under
which I could allegedly be
charged if I were an Ameri-
cancitizen. The article of the
(‘ode relates, however. to
advocating violent overthrow
of the Government, which is
something I have never done.
