the Kentucky Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools last

"Although we lead the world in
wealth and in material and scientific advancement," said Dr. Corey,
"moral deterioration is on the increase on all levels of national life."
He said reaction to this situation
took three forms. First was an attitude of apathy, next an attempt
to place the blame on Communist
activity, and then the feeling of a
portion of the public that laws can
be passed to control the situation.

The Hurricanes, who went against

sprung their own passing attack that
clicked for two TDs.
The unheralded passer, freshman

five for eight tries, netting 146 yards
and two for touchdowns.

Blazer lecture series last Friday
night. His subject was "Academic
Freedom", which he defined as the
right to learn.
Using examples from American
history, he said that rights that we
now enjoy, and are entitled to, must
be kept intact, since to lose one will
only mean the certain loss of all. He
stated that academic freedom is dependent primarily on America's professional scholars and termed scholarship as a search for truth. He
made the remark that research in
nearly any field was accepted with
0ut question, but that wher - 'a
dividual searched our society .
provements he was met with u.e assumption that all that is worth
knowing has already been discovered.
Dr. Caughey said that in a time of
crisis we are only too prone to throw
away our rights on the assumption
that they will be regained when normalcy returns, but that they seldom
do. He reminded his audience that
any power of totalitarianism depended on a force substituted for
logic, such as the Russian claims of
their firsts in science.
Dr. Caughey's summary was to
this effect. Americans must be made
to realize their freedoms, and schol- -j
ars must gain the interest of allies
instead of being shut out of society.

Tlx- - inrvituHc result





Dear Editor:
There has been a great deal of
talk during the last few days as to
vhere the real moral blame for the
basketball bribe scandal belongs.
The guilt of the players and the
racketeers who put the temptation
before them cannot be minimized.
And one can hardly be less guilty
than the other. A man who devises
a dishonorable sqheme can be held
no more accountable than those who
willingly subscribe to it.
Both the players and the gamblers
were aware that they were breaking
the law and that for selfish gain
they were betraying an inviolable
trust. Of those things they are guilty
and should be punished.
But the real culprits in the case
are the universities involved and all
the others which sponsor athletic
in their
schools. They created the basic situation by paying men for their athletic abilities. Even when the situation grew out of hand they took no
steps toward
until it
was too late.
They could not resist the temptation of the lucrative sports income.
Their. policy was one of exploitation
of athletic abilities. It almost seems
that they are getting just what they
asked for. At any rate, the univer- d.
sities stand as the guilty but

con-c-eni'- ii'


This sounds good, but xve question the validity
hen placed on the spot in the light of recent
athletic scandals, the public may give this answer. Whether they
actually mean that they want less emphasis is another question.
on uniToo often in the past pressure has lx'en brought to
versities who are not fielding winning teams. From the business
executive to the dirt farmer they complain alxiut the "rotten
teams up there at the state university." UK has not Ixf n an exception. Nor have wealthy alumni Ixf n the only ones pushing
such a project, although they have undoubtedly contributed the
most to it. Almost cxery citizen in the state is able to connect
some of the glory of a winning team with himself. iAnd we all
like it.
Now the chips are down and the citizens face a choice. Will
they sacrifice a winning team, xvhich must Ix? recruited by fair
means or foul, for a "simon pure" team which will win once in
a while, perhaps lose money, and certainly never go to another
lxnvl game?
The decision is one of pride versus morality and nothing more.
much emphasis.

called "hit business" athletic plant is discussed. Just what is the
cost to the Kentucky taxpayer of the actual running of the University athletic plant':
"The cost of his ticket" would answer this question correctly.
The UK athletic program ;s now operating in the black because
of the profits realized from the two major sports, basketball and
football. Those two sjvirts not only support the other sports,
baseball, track, golf, fencing, swimming, and tennis, but also the
band and SnKy jvp organization. Normal running expenses are
not likely to cost the taxpayer a cent for some time to come unless the athletic program should !e curtailed.
The athletic plant, however, is a slightly different situation.
Of the S3.T50.103 uhi.1i went into the Coliseum, aliout $3,200,000
was from state appropriations. The remainder was financed by
lxmds which are lx'ing amortized by the athletic program. But
the Coliseum is not used lor athletics alone. This year 11 varsity
basketball games w ill be played there. During the same period,
students and townspc-oplwill see 12 programs in the Community
I Aft lire Series.
The Coliseum is also used for commencement, baitalauroato and other official University programs.
The building also houses the swimming pool which can lie used
by all University students. The Coliseum is as important a place
to the more studious momlcrs of the student body lxfause of

These costs are no doubt offset by the publicity they have
brought to the state. It would le foolish to think that this publicity has not leon worth much to UK. Admitted the publicity
