“* business managers


to watch for minors

Kernel Staff Writer

Two managers of establishments near UK who
sell beer say they were recently contacted by
Tom Sturgis, north campus residence hall
coordinator, and told to “watch out for students
under 21."

Sturgis contacted the two managers after a
meeting with Lynn Williamson and Frank
Harris. both assistants to the Dean of Students.

STURGIS SAID he “observed an increase in
drinking by the freshman class and i am
concerned about it." Williamson said students
are “constantly bringing beer back to the

Al Durham. manager of Convenient Food Mart
on South Limestone said Sturgis told him that
there is too much beer going back to the dorms.

Durham said since then he requires two pieces
of identification and will not sell beer to anyone
with a residence hall address.

THE OTHER manager who was contacted by
Sturgis asked that his name and business not be
identified. He said Sturgis told him the
University had a problem with students drinking
and said he wanted to “calm it down." The
manager said he told his waitresses to carefully
check identification.

Williamson said alcohol related arrests of UK
students is up 50 per cent fromthe same period
last year. Williamson gets a police report on all
students who are arrested and computed the
number of alcohol related arrests from these
reports. Sturgis and Williamson declined to give

Rules committee streamlines election method

Kernel Staff Writer
The University Senate rules commitee
met Wednesday to begin streamlining the
method of electing faculty members to the
Board of Trustees and the Senate.
Under the Senate Rules, the rules
committee is charged with codifying,
making editorial changes in, and
interpreting the Senate rules.
“WE'RE NOW primarily concerned
with the definition of who is eligible for the
Senate and the Board of Trustees, under

Senate rules, which state one must engage
in full-time teaching. research, counsel-
ing or librarianship,“ said Harry Barnard,
education professor.

Barnard said the three sets of
regulations defining the method-Govern-
ing Regulations, Senate Rules and
Kentucky Revised Statutes ( KRS)--are not
consistent and need to be codified.

For example, the KRS section establish—
ing membership in the Board of Trustees
states “teaching or research members of
the faculty of the University of Kentucky

of the ranks of assistant professors, or
above" are eligible.

BUT THE Senate Rules state only those
with an assistant professor rank or higher
and full-time academic assignments in one
or more of the areas of teaching, research,
libraries and counseling shall be eligible.

Barnard said some faculty members’
eligibility is questionable because of
inconsistencies in the various regulations.

The committee agreed to ask students,
faculty and administrators for suggestions

Archtitecture dean sees little benefit
from Department of Art alignment

Kernel Staff Writer

(Editor's note: This is the third of a
series of stories dealing with the reactions
of the schools and departments affected by
the College of Arts and Sciences
reorganization proposal.)

Although the College of Architecture has
not taken a formal stand on the Arts and
Sciences reorganization proposal. Archi-
tecture Dean Anthony Eardley said he
could see very little programatic benefit
from a Department of Art alignment.

The proposal would align the College of
Architecture with the Art Department,
separating Art from A and S and making a
College of Architecture and Art.

FOR ONE TlllNG.it would require a
dean with a remarkable breadth of
understanding to coordinate the pro-
fessional and liberal art differences
between architecture and art. he said.

“It would require a dean with
remarkable perceptions." he said.

However, Eardley said it would be a
good idea to combine the two libraries and
reduce the staffs.

IN. CASE of an alignment with the art
department, Eardley said a new facility
would have to be built for the merged

“We are in Pence Hall and they (art
department) are in the Reynolds Building.
()ur faculty rarely sees their faculty and I
would say our students see even less of
their students." he said.

In the October University Senate
meeting, many senators expressed a fear
that the University was headed toward a
professional trend in education rather than
a traditional liberal arts education.

on how to best systematize eligibility

THE RULES committee’s role in
certification of faculty elections was also
discussed. Senate Council Chairman
Stanford Smith was present to help clarify
the role of the Council-—the administrative
arm of the University Senate-and the
rules committee.

Barnard said changes in the University
Senate require the rules committee to
certify ballots and results in elections of
faculty members to the Board of Trustees
and the University Senate.

Certification of ballots has traditionally
been handled by the secrtetary of the
Senate, presently Elbert Ockerman, dean
of admissions and registrar, Smith said.

BUT SENATE Rules state the rules
committee shall certify faculty eligibility
in elections conducted by the secretary of
the Senate.

Smith and committee members agreed
that the rules committee should certify
eligibility in the future.

Rules committee members Barnard,
Sidney Ulmer. political science professor
and Alvin Goldman. law professor. were
named on a subcommittee for certi-

Human qualities such as cultural

many students to quit school or, at

they might have received had they

University Senate Council could help
to alleviate this problem.

which will probably be assigned by
the Senate Council to study the
proposal, will draft an amendment to
the proposal clarifying the often
unclear wording of the bill.

Overall, the proposed “academic
bankruptcy“ bill is sound. however.
an even better “academic bank-
ruptcy" proposal would not be
restricted to illness. Similar
“academic bankruptcy“ rules have
been passed at other universities
which allow students to drop an entire
semester of grades from their records
if they desire.

If a student has a bad semester, for
whatever reason, he or she is allowed

to clear that semester’s grades from
the record. Generally, where this rule
has been passed it can only be used
for one semester of a student‘s
academic career.

We feel a proposal which would
allow a student to disregard an entire
semester‘s work without attaching an
illness requirement is fairer and more
beneficial to students than the
proposal which was sent to the Senate


We encourage the Senate Council to

Wear WIN button on way to Monopolyland bank


President Ford made a mistake
when he chose not to recommend
jumping the tax on gas 20 cents a
gallon and rationing it. Both
these measures would have had
about the same effect on inflation
as passing out WIN buttons while
devastating the already dis-
tressed automobile industry, but
they would satisfy our craving for
Calvinistic economics or bullet-

The ascendant opinion among
editorialists and commentators is
that good medicine must taste
bad and that it will somehow help
us if we turn our freeways into
pedestrian nature trails. The
acceptance of this sort of
Calvinist need for self-inflicted
pain is puzzling in a nation that
grew up playing Monopoly. By all
rights anyone who's ever had his
token land on Marvin Gardens
should be impervious to the
argument that a sudden rise in
the price of a commodity, i.e.
gas, can cause inflation. In the
game of Monopoly each player
gets $1,500, and the bank —that is
the government or the Federal
Reserve Board —gets to keep the
rest. The bank may make loans in

the form of mortgages but, unlike
what happens in Washington, it
can't create new money. The
ratio of dollars to real estate or to
the number of players is fixed
and must remain the same. How
different from the United States
where the number of paper
dollars per person has gone up
from 755 to 1940 to 6,049 last year.
In the beginning of a Monopoly
game the relative liquidity or
cash on hand between the players
changes according to what
properties they each buy. Thus a
player who buys Pennsylvania
Avenue (price $320) or Board-
walk (5400) will soon find he’s
eaten into his $1,500 grubstake,
which may make it difficult for
him to buy Park Place from
another player in order to
complete his monopoly. To do it
he may have to pay more than the
going rate, but you’ll notice that
price rise doesn’t cause a general
rise. All that happens is that the
buyer is short on cash; he’s in a
little, private liquidity crunch.

When Real Estate Goes Up
Now suppose he finds the
money to put up hotels on his
monopoly so that he can charge
$2,000 to the unlucky wretch
whose token lands there What
does this sudden jump in the

price of real estate do to the
economy of Monopolyland?

It transfers wealth. It makes
player A richer than player B,
but it creates no rise in other
rentals. Quite the contrary, it
tends to depress them since, if the
cash-short B next lands on
Virginia Avenue, owned by C, B
will try to convince C it’s in his
own interest to drop the rent and
thereby prevent B from going
into bankruptcy and leaving the
game. In no event, however, is
the purchasing power of the
Monopolyland dollar degraded.

Well, you may answer, in the
real-life Arab monopoly game
there is a difference. In real life
the Arabs raise their prices and
rip off all the players at once, and
it is that “economic blackmail”
which causes the inflation. The
situation is similar to that in
Monopolyland when one of the
players draws the Community
Chest card which says: ”Grand
Opera Opening -—COLLECT $50
from each player." But again this
is just a simple transfer of
wealth. One player is arbitrarily
enriched at the expense of all the
others. There‘s no inflation.

The only way you can inflate a
Monopoly game is if the banker
cheats by grabbing a fistful of

money from a second Monopoly
set and hands it to the players.
who then use it to pay their $50
assessment for the Grand Opera
Opening. To the receiving player
it will seem that he is getting his
full $50 payment, but actually he
is getting less. How much less is
determined by how much the
banker has diluted the currency.
For the first six months of this
year the Federal Reserve Board
has been diluting our currency at
a rate of not less than 5.5 per cent
and sometimes as high as 7 per
cent. This is the “tight“ money
policy you’ve been reading about.

Only Choice Is to Demand More

Now, if the banker cheats this
way in a Monopoly game, and the
receiving player catches on as he
inevitably must if the cheating
continues, he‘s going to demand
$60 instead of $50 to compensate
for the loss in the dollar‘s value.
He has no choice because there
are now more dollars per unit of
real estate or per player than
there were at the start of the

So the question is: What would
happen if we used a fixed money
supply in real life as we do in the
game'.’ We would have constantly
falling prices, since we would be

making more goods, more cars,
more TVs. etc. to be purchased
by the same number of dollars.
The same thing would happen in
Monopoly if you kept the same
total amount of money in the
game while you doubled the size
of the board. In real life this
would also ultimately mean not
only a drop in the interest rates,
but negative rates under which
the bank would pay you to borrow

It would also get rid of one of
inflation‘s most pernicious side
effects, the obscuring of relation-
ships and happenings. When the
banker cheats, neither we nor the
other players can distinguish
between a real price rise and an
apparent one. Thus while we
complain about what the Arabs
are doing. you need a green
eyeshade and a computer to know
that in terms of actual pur-
chasing power they're really not
getting very much more for their
oil than they were 25 years ago.

So, go directly to jail. Do not
pass GO, do not collect $200, but

don't forget to wear your WIN
