SGA Budget Still Unsettled

After Long Stormy Session
No Decision Made

Cut 25

In a lengthy meeting, characterised by confusion and stormy discussion, the SGA Monday night:
1. Made no decision on cutting the
Kentuckian's budget appropriation.
from $650 to
bui did cut the
$457.50.
2. Decided

to study the possibility
o: a Campus Chest, to replace the
present practice of having numerous
campus fund drives.
3. Moved to try' to recover, "tactfully," a $200 appropriation .to the
House Presidents Council.
4. Defeated a motion to hire a
name banl for the dance after the
Tennessee game, and a motion to
cancel the dance.
Armstrong And Bere Defend Kyian
Ker.tucman editor Don Armstrong
and business manager Dave Bere
told the SGA any 'cut, even a small
one. would hurt the Kentuckian a
great deal.
Armstrong explained the $500 was
originally intended for the purpose
of publishing junior and senior pictures in the Kentuckian.
"At present," Armstrong said, "the
$500 represents only about one-thiof the total cost of producing the
pages of juniors and seniors.
"To cut appropriations for the
Kentuckian will cause a difference
to show in the format of the Kentuckian. If the money is taken,
something will have to come out.
Well have to eliminate the junior
pictures if we are cut, and most of
the junior pictures are already
taken."

The dinner was highlighted by

participation in campus activities
and scholastic standing.
The presentation was followed by

Russia's red circle of Communistic influence is vulnerable to attack from many angles and therefore she will not attempt to carry
on an open, large-scawar.
That was the key-noof a series
of lectures given by Dr. Samuel
Van Valkenburg, director of the
Graduate school of geography,
Clark University. The lectures were
sponsored by the UK Department
of Geography.
Dr. Van Valkenburg said that
most people do not become Communists by clear-cpersonal
choice, but because of. economic
conditions. It is a question of poverty and misery which controls the
lives of the people. In such a fertile field Communism plants its
seeds, and there they flourish.
World geographers working together could help relieve this situation. Dr. Van Valkenburg believes.
They could construct maps of the
earth in order to gain a better picture of how idle land areas could be
made creative. This Idea has gained favorable comment from the UN.
Dr. Van Valkenburg closed his
series Wednesday with an illustrated lecture of countries west of

Checks Cashed Free

In Campus Bookstore
Checks are now being cashed at
the campus bookstore and without charge James E. Morris, the
manager, said this week.
Cashing checks was discontinued
for a while because of the many
bad checks the book store received.
Mr. Morris said that $600 in bad
checks have been taken in this
semester. The writers of these
checks have ben notified, but only
a few of the checks have been redeemed.

It was imperative a short time

ago to make a ten cents purchase
when cashing a check. This was
due to the expenses involved In
sending checks through the bank.
Mr. Morris said that many students took this rule the wrong way,
and he removed it.
Mr. Morris said if a student has
given a bad check to the bookstore, he would appreciate prompt
attention towards it. If the book
store continues to receive bad
checks, it will be forced again to
discontinue cashing checks, he
added.

S35C of our surplus this year, and it
seems that you could spend some of
yours instead of ours."
Another 10 minutes was devoted to
more discussion about the Kentuc- kian's reserve fund, with no progress
toward clearing up the matter.
Armstrong did say, however, that
Dr. Niel Plummer, head of the
Board of Student Publications, had
stated it would be impossible for the
Kentuckian to use its reserve fund
to cover a deficit.
Armstrong was asked if a $125 cut
would definitely cause the Kentuckian to have to eliminate the junior
pictures, or some other section. He
replied, "Yes, something definitely
have to be cut."
Representative Carl Turner immediately challenged Armstrong,
"You stated very dogmatically the
junior pictures would have to go, but
I heard nothing in the statistics you
read to substantiate this."
Turner moved to appoint a committee to study the situation with
members of the Kentuckian staff "so
we can see just what we are cutting."
Results of the investigation, to be
made by President Bob Smith, Secretary Polly Boteler, and Jess Gardner, a member of the Budget Committee, will be presented at the next
meeting.
Campus Chest Will Be Surveyed
The Campus Chest, proposed by
representative Evelyn Baker, was
discussed.
Fred Davis and Miss
Baker were appointed to write to

we can't wait until two months of
school have passed, and then take a
cut into account."
The question of just what the
Kentuckian's reserve fund is, and
Just what it is used for was mentioned, but never fully explained. Bere
did say that some of the reserve
fund went to outfit the new Journalism Building. He also said the
reserve fund was used to gain contract advantages, but did not explain
to the assembly.
"It Would Be A Mediocre Annual"
"We could have an anual even if
we are cut." Bere told the group.
"but it would be a mediocre annual."
"We exchange annuals with other
schools. If they look at our annual
and see only a mediocre one. th?y

university.
"We want a better Kentuckian this
year. You want future generations
to see an annual for your class that
you could be proud of, don't you?
But we cant do it without the
money."
When Armstrong again took the
floor, he said the Kentuckian did
not desire to make money, but only
to break even. He said the Kentuckian would probably go Into debt if
the appropriation was cut.

Here we go with the UK budget again. Maybe it seems like
we're devoting a lot of space to the subject and of course we
are. But the fact is the budget deserves space.
What this budget means to University students should not Ix?
underestimated.
The budget is not just the concern of the administration and the state legislature. The effect of the failure
to pass it will be felt by you, whether you think so or not.
Disregarding the 200 facility and staff memljers who will have
to be dropped if the increase is not approved, let's look at the
situation of the remaining faculty. At the present University
salaries, the average University professor's pay check is approximately $100) less than the average at 21 other state supported
universities. The associate professors here fair a little lx?tter making only about $250 less than the average for the same 21 universities. Assistant professors and instructors alxmt hold their own
in this comparison.
A quick look at these figures should be enough to convince
most people that the University will have a difficult time attempting to hold its top faculty memlxTS if something is not done to
adjust their salaries to the rising cost of living and to the salaries
paid at other universities.
University students should lie able to see without much
trouble that the loss of top University personnel is bound to have
some effect on the quality of their education.
We believe tin's alone is justification of the space the budget
receives.
