SGA Cuts Appropriations

r

ForKyian, House Presidents
In Approving Final Budget
'

Plummcr Says Fund
Must Be Maintained
At Its Present Level

The Student Government Association Monday night took final action
on the budget for 1951-5after
voting to pass the
Kcntuckian appropriation cut. and
to change the controversial House
Presidents Council appropriation
from $450 to $250.
With these chances, the SGA will
go only $363 into its reserve fund,
instead of the originally estimated
$850, members of the Budget Committee said. The budget now provides for expenditures of $4863.
Monday night's meeting was adjourned after 35 minutes, in contrast
with last week's two hour and 30
minute session.
Gardner Gives Reports
Other action in the Monday night
meeting Included reports by Jess
Gardner on the Student Director
and the dance after the Tennesse-gameAn SGA committee, which investi'

gated the effects of cutting the Kentuckian appropriation from $500 to
$375, told the assembly that such a
cut could be borne by the publication, although some pages might be
cut.
The committee explained the use of
the Kentuckian reserve fund, which
aroused much discussion at last
meeting.
week's
President Bob
Smith,
member of the committee,
said the reserve fund was used to
pay cash for all transactions. Smith
said the Kentuckian received discounts by paying cash. He also said
Dr. Niel Plummer, head of the
Board of Student Publications, had
stated that the surplus must be kept
at the present level.
Motion Passed Unanimously
After hearing the report, Bos Todd
moved to pass the 25 cut. The motion was passed unanimously.
A bill presented by Carter Glass
and passed 11 to 6 by the SGA
changed the appropriation to the
House Presidents Council from $450
to $250. Glass told the SGA last
week that the Council had $200 appropriated last year for a vocational
conference, and did not need the extra $200 this year.
Jess Gardner told the SGA that
Student Directories will be printed
as soon as the typing is finished.
George Morgan moved that names
of members of the SGA be added to
the directory "if there is room."
Morgan said. "It will put members'
names before the students so they
will be able to approach them about
measures for legislation by SGA
The motion was passed.
Dance Plans Announced
Gardner, in reporting arrange
ments for the dance after the Ten
nessee football game on Nov. 24,
said Johnny Heaton and his Blue
and White Orchestra had been signed for the dance. The dance will be
held from 8 to 12 in the Bluegrass
Ballroom, he said.
The assembly, on a move by Henry
Neal and an amendment by Carter
Glass, set the price of the dance at
$1.50, stag or drag.

the Student Government
should have made the
cuts in appropriations earlier.
Armstrong, whose publication was
cut from $500 to $375 in appropria- by the SGA. said the SGA
should have made the cut before
for the present annual were
made, or have waited until next
year.
"We tried to make clear to SGA
that under the financial set-u- p
of
Kentuckian the $125 cut meant
more than the amount would seem
to indicate'." Armstrong said. "With
the idea in mind of improving the,

The Kentuckian understands the
budgetary position of SGA and real- izes that they had to find some ex- penditures to be cut back. However,
we can't help feeling that SGA

made adequate reparations for the
financial loss, or have waited until

Athletic Director Bernie Shively
said this week he did not know
whether the NCAA would take any
action regarding the championship
and trophy won by the Wildcats
while Ralph Beard, Alex Groza, and
Dale Barnstable were members of
the team.
Ruby Questions Trophy Possession
Earl Ruby, sports editor of the
Courier-Journa- l,
had wondered in
his daily column if the NCAA championship and trophy won in 1949
would have to be returned. Ruby
aid the players may have become
professionals in the eyes of the
NCAA when they accepted money
from gamblers. He cited the case
af Jim Thorpe, who had to return
countless medals won in Olympic
competition because he had played
professional baseball.
The athletic director said, "I have
not even had time to think about
the matter," when asked if the
jwards would have to be returned.
"I don't know what will happen,"
he added, "but we will do the right
hing whatever it is."
Feels Sorry For Families
About the basketball-fi- x
scandal
itself, Shively said, "I know that
hat the players did was wrong.
The players knew they were doing
wrong. Everyone knows they were
wrong, but at the same time I can't
help feeling sorry for them, especially their families."
The first news that the scandal
involved former UK athletes came
Alex
when three-tim- e
3roza and Ralph Beard were arrested Friday night after the annual
basketball game in Chicago.
Former Wildcat captain Dale Barnstable was arrested in Louisville Saturday morning.
All three admitted taking $500
bribes to shave points in the Kentucky-Loyola
game on March 14.
1949, which Loyola won,
in a
Running upset. Vincent A. G.
O'Connor, assistant district attorney
)t New York, said other fixed games
ere involved, including practically
every game played during the 1948-4- 9
season.
Sports Writers Knew Of Fix
Kentuckians were stunned by the
disclosure. Although several sports
writers had known such a move
was forthcoming since early in July,
the general public had only heard a
recent statement made by the New
York District Attorney's office that
several more teams would be in

Here on campus a sophomore coed
expressed the sentiments of most
students when she said, "When the
players in New York were found to
have accepted money for rigging
games, we didn't think too much
about it because the gambling ele
ment has long been prevalent there.
"We always thought it couldn't
happen here. Even Coach Rupp said
just a little while ago, 'Our boys
couldn't be touched with a
pole.' But it did happen here! And
it hurts. It hurts like well, it hurts
like hell."
Beard and Groia Barred
Beard and Groza have been barred from the National Basketball
League, and have been ordered to
disjjo.se of their stock in the Indianapolis Olympians within 30
days. Alumni and players at Louisville Manual High School, where
Barnstable is coach, have asked that
he be retained as coach.
The three players have been released on bail until a hearing on
Nov. 7 in New York.
News of the fix scandal sent editors all over Kentucky to their
typewriters. Many papers blasted
editorially the recruiting system
used by colleges in their quest for
athletic talent. Others blamed lax
control of gambling for the scandal.
Dr. Donovan I'rges Laws
Dr. Donovan released a statement
calling for stringent gambling laws
in Kentucky. Legislators all over
the slate promised to introduce such
bills in the next session of the General Assembly.

Japan's Recovery Admired
By Former Staff Member
Admiration for the remarkable

re- -

covery of Japan was expressed by
Glenn D. Morrow, former UK staff
member, in an interview this week.
Mr. Morrow has just returned

from Japan where he helped to re- write Japanese tax laws. For the
past two years he has been closely
with the American Mili- Government in Tokyo.
In his opinion. Japan is readv and
able to take her place anions the
world's free nations. Hiroshima, he
said, can no longer be recognized as
target. The
the worlds first
leveled in 1943 is now almost
rebuilt, modern buildings
a:e more numerous than before the
blast, and despite the quarter-mi- llion casualties among its inhabitants
the city now has a population of
more than of six years ago.
Matching the country's physical
recovery has been its economic recovery. He said that in many cases
the new JaDanese tax laws are more
enlightened than those of the U.S.
Virtually free of taxes before the
big landowners are now bearing
share of the load.
Japan has made great strides to- ward producing enough food for its
rapidly increasing population.
though it i. still not entirely self- sufficient 'lecause of its small land
area.
The Japanese people harbor no ill- fiv liicir American conquerors,
said lerrow. This was borne out in
,

the summer of 1950, he thinks, when,
because of the Korean emergency.
Japan was virtually stripped of
American troops. Military govern- ment authorities, though powerless,
encountered no difficulty whatever
with the populace. On the contrary,
says Morrow, the situation was
ed along by wholehearted cuoptra-tar- y
tion from the Japanese.
Morrow said the Japanese nave an

Players Or Fans?
Students are shocked and surprised at the involvement of
three of the "Fabulous Fiv" in the basketball fix scandal. Why,
we are unable to see.
Students who are willing to place weekly bets on the green
cards have no kick conifnc when team members take money to
adjust the point spread. After all. the idea was not to throw the
games, but just to adjnnt the margin of victory. Is this so much
more morally wrong than wagering on that same point spread? We
hardly think so.
The plavers cannot lie absolved for the disillusionment and
disappointment they have caused the thousands of followers of
the Fabulous Five ranging from awestruck grade school kids to
strictly for their athletic
grandmothers who supported the
UK. These fans were let down
ability or because they played for
by those they trusted and put their faith in. Others who patronized the bookies or played the green cards got a!out what they
deserved.
with gambling that even the
When a sport becomes so t;ed-ilw ts on teams throughout the nation,
students are placing weekly
players can hardly be erpec ted to regard it in the same light as
they did high school athletics. When the fans are backing a team
to beat the point spread the mcmlxTS of that team cannot feel
the same obligation to their fans that they would if the support
was due to w hat the more provincial of us call school spirit.
Of course, all the students haven't been betting on the games,
but a sufficiently large number have to make the player wonder
just whether he is participating in a soit or a business. The idea
of the game as business evidently won out with Beard, Groza,
and Barnstable.
Not that we are justifying their actions, for a dishonest act is still
dishonest no matter what justification may be given for it. What
we are trying to get at is that the students, alumni, and townspeople who encouraged the gamblers and contributed just as
much to the scandal they are now so shocked alxnit will receive
no penalty. The time lias passed when it is even considered
"modern" for people to frown on Ix'tting by their friends.
On the other hand, the players who are actually guilty have
already received all the penalty they deserve in the ruining of
their reputations. The irony of the w hole thing is that the people
who will invoke this penalty are in a large part the same people
who were responsible for the professional gambler being able to
'
flourish the betting public.
As long as people continue to feel that they cannot enjoy a
sport without betting on it, gamblers will attempt to fix games and
in the process blot the reputations of lxth players and schools.
It would be unwise not to blame the players for taking bribes,
but it would be far more unwise to overlook the real cause and
consider ourselves completely innocent in the affair.

Lances Carnival
Was Success, But
Lances Carnival was a great success. The booths were prol
ably the best ever, with a great deal of originality and effort being displayed.
One thing about it worried us, though the increased cost of
seeing the carnival. Tliree or four years ago it was possible to
take a date to the Carnival, spend an enjoyable two or three
hours all for about a two dollar outlay. Last Friday a couple
couldn't have seen all the lxxths for less than $10.
Granted, the shows arc letter and probably worth more, but
we wonder just how long" the average student can afford to keep
up with the price increases. Lances might do well to consider
that there is a possibility of the carnival outgrow ing the pocket-hooof its public the students.
The scholarship fund that receives the proceeds from the events
is a worthy cause, but the carnival and dance have in the past
proved to be one of the. best
activities ever held on the
campus. We would hate to see this changed. Also, it seems unlikely that the scholarship fund will increase if crowds decrease
even though prices for the various booths are raised.
Perhaps Lances would lie doing the campus a better service
if "money taken in" was not one of the booth judging points, so
that the carnival could be enjoyed by all students, even those without large bank accounts.

The silliest thing I've seen around
the campus recently is the barbed
wire fence between the back corners
of the new Journalism Building and
the Mining Laboratory. It's the most
unattractive thing, too. Obviously,
the fence is meant to protect the
tender grass blades, newly planted
around the Journalism Building.
That brings to mind an age-ol- d
question: Who is going to protect
the interests of the students? If
maintenance had considered the plot
for one minute, they would have
recognized it as a logical thoroughfare for students going to and from
the Journalism department, the
Kernel, Kentuckian, and press offices. Do I dare ask if the structural
beauty of the Mining Laboratory
merits the walk around its hulk
countless times a day?
One mistake, and that's that. No
reinstatement; no second chance.
Why must it take such a large scale
proving of this point to make the
public cry out against the way things
are.
It can be seen every day, and its.
truth strikes as hard upon the un
sung individual. A student is caught
cheating on a final just once and
he automatically fails the course. A,
young person is caught in the midst
of his first car robbery, and its just
too bad for him. And some promising young man, with a future well.
it happens every day. K's always
the same. Somehow the just rewards
are passed out, and "he gets his," in,
the same old 'reap what you sow'
fashion.

In answer to the letter by "A Student who wants his $60 worth."
which was in last week's Kernel, I
want to explain a few things.
Hi The Kernel does not get your
$G0, it gets 5c of it. That is about
3'jc an issue. We could not possibly
mail a Kernel to every town student
on that amount.
2 If we did mail out the Kernel
every week, the students wouldn't
receive them till Monday or Tuesday.
The news by then would be stale.
(3) Every town student is entitled
to a mailbox in McVey Hall. A Kernel is placed in each box on Friday
morning. It is the student's duty to
get a mailbox, not only for the Kernel, but for University bulletins.
4) If you would freshen up on
economic facts of life, you wou
realize that it is not the Kernel, b.
the Kernel presses which are payir
for the Journalism Building.
