Reyar said Hreckinridge has received

District. opposes the dam on the basis that
the water supply and recreation benefits of
the project are not sufficient justification
for construction. according to Dale

Hooper said Mazzoli favors an indefinite
delay because of a “great many can

issue and that the costbenefit ratio on the
project was not satisfactory.

Fourth Distrtict Rep Eugene Snyder. a
Republican. has opposed the dam since

William Tanner, a legislative assistant.

Bureaucracy plus law equals absurdity

An absurdity perpetrated in the
name of law coupled with the in-
transigence of bureaucracy can only
produce an awesome illogic.

That is the outcome of a recent
federal court decision upholding a
state regulation requiring a married
woman to use her husband‘s last
name to obtain a Kentucky driver‘s

T. Moynahan .lr, dismissed the suit
brought by [K journalism instructor
Sylvia Scott \Vhitlow. who applied for

principles" which he said require a
woman to assume her husband's

It is interesting to note that Ken-
tucky does not have a law requiring a
married woman to take the last name
of her husband. The only reason why
a woman is required to use her
husband‘s name seems to be for the
sake of uniform records.

Division of Driver Licensing. said
record—kwping problems could result
if Whitlow used her own name but
later decided to change it to her

That seems like a poor argument
since Whitlow is simply trying to keep
her name the same instead of
changing it to her husband's
Perhaps with a little careful thought
Hodges would realize that it would
require less changes in record
keeping it w omen did not change their
names when they were married.

Letters to the editor

Pan Am buyers are not Arabs

Concerning the cartoon which
ran on page two of the Kernel,
Thursday. Feb. 20, it must be said
that it revealed an unerring
accuracy in ignorance — both on
the part of the cartoonist and the
journals that published it.

The cartoon depicts an Arab
(as identified by his traditional
garments) thrown unceremon-
iously off a Pan Am plane with
the caption: “The new owner‘?’?
We thought he was a terroristl”.

A certain amount of political
humor could indeed be found in
this were it not for the fact that it
was not Arabs who bought stock
in the airline but Iranians (Per-
sians) — a people neither Arab
nor Semitic who speak an Indo-
European language (Farsi) and a
nation that has shown consistant
political friendship with the U.S.
and coolness, if not hostility.
towards its neighbor to the north.

the USSR. Although predomin-
antly Muslim in religion, Per-
sians do not imitate Arab dress
and moreover have generally
refrained from the trend towards
international terrorism.

Hence our only conclusion is
that the nominal knowledge
needed to recognize the flagrant
error in this cartoon is severely
lacking in both the cartoonist and

the newspapers (including also
the Los Angeles Times and the
Denver Post) which have carried
it. Admittedly this oversight is
disturbing in light of the role of
the press in public relations
through their clear and careful
presentation of the news.
