An
dance, the first of its kind on the
UK campus, will be held from 8:30
p.m. to 12:30 a.m. Saturday.
The Cosmopolitan Club is sponsoring the dance as a symbolic gesture
to aid the Lexington Women's Club
in its effort to raise $1800 to send
one UK stuednt and one Lexington
high school student abroad as Community Ambassadors. A Community
Ambassador is a young person
selected by the people of his home
town to spend a short time abroad
and then bring home a greater
understanding of the people and
culture of another land, according to
a Cosmopolitan Club spokesman.
"Most foreign students at UK are
on American scholarships," ' says
Monacher Ganji, chairman of the
dance. "We feel we should do something to repay this country for its
generosity."

the foreign students plan to attend
dressed in the costumes of their

attend in costume or in informal

'Gayle Warner' To Stand Trial
In Lafferty Court For Murder
Mock Court Part
Of Law School's

Special Program
The mock trial of Gayle Warner,
who shot and killed Charles Brooks
in a staged fight in the SUB GriU
Tuesday morning, will be held at
Lafferty Circuit Court at 2 pm.
Wednesday.
The trial is a part or the special
Law Day program, which will also
include addresses by Charles O'Con-nel- l.
Secretary of State, and John
A. Fulton, judge of the Jefferson
County Quarterly Court.
Shelley Riherd, a senior in the
College of Law, will act as prosecuting attorney of Lafferty .County.
Jack Lowery Jr., one of UK's representatives in the national Moot
Court trials held last fall, is to be
special prosecutor. The attorneys for
the defense are Dan Cornette and
Joe Nagle, both senior law students.
Gayle Warner, the defendant in the
case, is portrayed by Charlie Tack-et- t.
In the staged fight, Charles
Brooks was played by Ed Roark.
According to Riherd, Brooks had
been taking out Warner's sweetheart, who will be played by 'Pat
Moore, UK's representative to the
Mountain Laurel Festival. When the
fight broke out in the Grill, Brooks
asked Warner if he was "trying to
get even."
Attorneys Make Statements
Both prosecution and defense attorneys have issued formal statements for the press. Riherd said
that the prosecution would seek the
death penalty. "The facts of this
case," Riherd stated, "are such that
if Gail Warner should go unpunished the people of this Commonwealth would not be safe in their
homes or public places."

grill witnessed the staged murder of
Charles Brooks Tuesday morning.
Ed Roark, a senior in the College
of Law, played the part of the victim. His killer was Gayle Warner,
played by law senior Charlie Tack-et- t.
Warner will be tried in "Laf-iert- y
Circuit Court" Wednesday as
part of the Law Day exercises.
The fight, which led to the "murder" of Brooks by Warner, started
when the two collided in the doorway between the Grill and the Cafeteria. Warner knocked a cup of
coffee out of Brooks' hand.
After a short dialogue. Brooks
struck Warner and knocked him to
the floor. A shot was fired. Brooks
staggered backward into the Grill,
and fell. His shirt was stained with
coffee, representing blood.
Immediately, Sgt. Joe Modica and
Patrolman John Boyle of the Lexington Police Department appeared
from the Cafeteria and arrested
Warner, who was holding a revolver.
When the fight first began, Ward
Coleman, who knew both combatants, tried to separate them. He
could not understand why they
would squabble.
Kernel Photographer Ken Vance,
sitting close to the scene with his
camera, had been informed of the
entire procedure. But when the
shot was fired, he became so excited
that he could hardly aim his camera.
Many observers were uneffected.
Fred Silhanek, a junior in the College of Engineering who was sitting
about 15 feet from the action, simply

The University Faculty approved a
plan authorizing changes in the
structure of the Graduate School
and some modifications of policy
and requirements for graduate de
grees at Monday's meeting. Dr. Herman E. Spivey, dean of the Graduate
School, has announced.
One of the major changes approved by the faculty was that candidates for masters' degrees may
now substitute six extra hours of
class work for the thesis which was
formerly required. This option is
similar to that which has been offered in the Education College for
some time.
stressed that the
Dr. Spivey
changes must be voted on by the
Board of Trustees before they go
into effect.
Three Main Points
Concerning the organizational
changes in the Graduate School, Dr.
Spivey said there were three main
points:
1) plans for the immediate enlargement of the Graduate faculty
on the basis of high professional attainment.
2) establishment of an elective
Graduate Council to assist the Graduate Dean in the promotion of
graduate work.
3) establishment of a definite system of graduate advisors, to be
known as "Directors of Graduate

Study."
Main Changes Listed
He said the main changes in
policies and regulations are:
1) higher standards and improved
procedures for admission to full
graduate standing of those seeking
advanced degrees.
2) better control of Graduate
School loads, so as to promote deeper study of the credits actually earn-

Only one amendment was made
in the plan as presented by Vice
President Leo Chamberlain, acting
for Dr. R, L. TuthiU, chairman of

Faculty Should Lead Students
By Reason Instead Of Force
Believe in truth, protest against error, lead men
by reason rather than force.

Monday.
That the scholastic standing of some social organizations at UK is had cannot lie denied. We
would be the last to deny it. Nor do we question
the motives of the Faculty, who were undoubtedly
sincere in their desire to improve scholarship.
But their action, coming as it did when the chief
offenders, the fraternities, were, under the influence
of reason, taking steps to solve their own problems,
seems to us unfair.
Actually, we don't think the penalties called for
in the new rules will ever le used. We believe the
IFC program will clear up the situation before the
end of next year. Some faculty memlers have ex- Mc-Ve-

"Astronomers at the University of Chicago have
detected something that looks like moss growing
on Mars. I am convinced that Mars was once inhabited by rational beings like ourselves who had
the misfortune, some thousands of years ago, to
invent television."
Quoted from Rolert Ilutchins' farewell address
to tlie students of tlie University of Chicago.)
Aside from a possible censure of television, this
quotation can also be interpreted as a lament for a
people who daily seem to be more obsessed with
being entertained than with being educated and
trying to think.
Millions of Americans annually go to the movies
to escape the troubles of everyday life. They sink
back in soft theater seats and are relieved of the
burden of thinking. In a like manner, others spend
what little time they'devote to reading in the perusal of the comic strips in the newspapers. Our
magazines are full of erotic romance stories emotional garbage. Tlie radio devotes much more time
to the problems of 'Willy's Other Uncle, Joseph"
than it does to intelligent forums of public opinion
and the publicizing of facts aliout the pressing
problems of today's world.
The fault: is certainly not with the movies, the
newspapers, the magazines, or the radio. After all,
they are commercial venture that produce what the
public iss willing to consume. Tlie fault lies with
the people themselves you and I, and our educational system.
True-whave developed technical knowledge to
a high point. Scientists now have an electronic
brain that solves the most complicated mathematical' problems with barely a murmur. We have
gone far in the specialization of various fields of
knowledge, but this has led to a lessening of the
importance of individual original thinking. Far too
much of today's schooling concerns the memorization of formulae, patterns, and diagrams. We have
become obsessed with facts and nothing but facts."
As yet this country doesn't have robot-lik- e
thinking, but we're moving toward it. Only if our education system is revamped to teach people not
uliat to think, but how to think will we avoid the
danger.

action
Certainly, a lack of faith in the students ot the
University as responsible persons was shown. In a
sense these students may have deserved this lack of
faith due to their failure to remedy their scholastic
problem earlier. On the other hand, constnictive
efforts should receive encouragement, not the threat
of penalties in the event of failure.
Ultimately the social organizations themselves are
the ones who must actually improve their own
scholarship. The faculty rules attack the effect of
poor scholarship, low numerical standings, but they
do not deal with its causes, poor study habits, lack
of incentive, wasted time, and the like. These will
have to lie remedied by the members themselves.
The new rules may force members of social organizations to work harder to eliminate the cause, but
they give lio advice as to how this can be done.
Students can seem to be an unreasonable lot;
sometimes it seems they don't really care about anything. Often it is a great temptation to lead them
by force rather than by reason. There is no doubt
