SG cancels textbook

Kernel Staff Writers
Student Government (SG) has canceled a
textbook sales program which committed
two-thirds of its annual budget toward
purchase of books for sale at a discount.
The book order was canceled Aug. 6
before any funds were expended because of
legal and budgetary difficulties. “The
program was strangled by red tape." said
SG President David Mucci.

AFTER (LAINING. approval of the
executive committee of the Student Senate
Aug]. Mucci ordered 800 textbooks at a
total cost of $6.725.

MUCCI told the Senate he received
approval from the UK Office of Business
Affairs to base a textbook concession in the
Student Center. Organizers of the project
felt success of the operation depended upon
their sales location.

"George Ruschell. assistant to the vice
president for business affairs. told me that
space would be no problem Wllhln the
Student Center," MucCi said. He also said

"l (NY? the approval I needed piecemeal
and went ahead on that basis." Mucci said.

He recommended the project to the Senate
on the basis of his conversations with
various administrators.

Hall informed Mucci of potential legal and
budgetary complications on Aug. 2, the day

SG ordered the textbooks.

It seemed

evident, according to Mucci, that difficulties
would make sale of the textbooks within the
Student Center highly improbable. The
order was subsequently canceled.

Hall asked Special Counsel John C. Darsie
to draw up a legal opinion on the feasibility
of the project. Darsie‘s opinion was released
Tuesday and confirms Mucci's fears.

UK’s Athletics Board advanced on
two fronts during its Aug. 23 meeting.
(See story on page 20.) Aside from
holding its first public session —
forced upon the members by the
state’s recently adopted sunshine law
— the board welcomed S.T. Roach to
its ranks.

Roach has long been a booster of
black athletes in central Kentucky
and he is the first black man to
occupy a seat on the coveted board.
His selection was no fluke. UK
President Dr. Otis Singletary said he
hand picked the Lexington resident
for the post yet neither man expects
Roach to serve as a representative for
blacks only.

Roach is famous nation-wide for his
successful coaching record at the now
defunct Lexington Dunbar High

has contributed much worthwhile

In the confusion of settling into a
normal lifestyle at the beginning of
each new semester many of us fail to
accomplish one or two things we often
later regret. For instance. many
campus bike owners fail to register
their vehicles with either the campus
Public Safety Division or the
Lexington Metro Police Department.

While registering a bike does
nothing to dec ease the odds of its
being stolen it i aises the chances of its
being found 3 id returned.

According to Public Safety Chief
Paul Harrison. campus owners of
bikes would be doing themselves a
favor by taking a few minutes one day

to register their vehicles with the
proper au'horities. Presently this
may be done at the division‘s
headquarters at the Euclid .‘\\'(‘,‘l{()5(‘
St. intersection.

Registration costs nothing and may
be done 24 hours a day. To register a
vehicle one must simply fill out three
cards which will be cross-filed by
owner‘s name. address and serial
number. Harrison said when a theft of
a registered vehicle is reported the
division can search for leads from
these angles.

Harrison also said owners may
want to register their bikes with the
Lexington department. Persons who

Depression mangles nation's economy


CHICAGO —— “Every time the banks
raise their interest rates on certificates of

more money into treasury bills. I'd rather
get five per cent less on my money and

Amnesty deals confront weary country

...nobody is a friend of ours. Let‘s face
it? Don’t worry about that sort of thing.
Dick Nixon
March 13. 1973

“You can‘t talk about healing.” says
President Ford. as the camera eye. which
moments earlier was peeping over the
shoulders of reporters anxiously doodling
in their steno-notebooks. has suddenly
perched itself at microphone length from
his chin. ‘unless you are going to use it in
the broadest context."

The scene is a week ago Monday and the
lead film clip of the (‘ronkite news show is
whirling its way onto several million TV
screens. or perhaps the scene is four or
five hours earlier on the return trip from
(‘hicago ahoard Air Force One. and
President Ford is expounding for
reporters on his speech to the national
VFW convention in which he called for a
c;tsehy~case conditional amnesty for
Vietnam deserters and draft dodgers,

'l‘elevision has a way of creating its own
scene. for example. it was only a matter of
an hour or two before when camera crews
from the three networks. reinforced by the
news wires and some big city papers. had
beaten a path for Toronto to. as they say in
the trade, balance out the story. get some
comment from the other side

.-\\'l) AS the network news shows
whirled into history and out past the moon.
“no way" seemed to be the general
consensus from Canada; all these years in
exile. and then come home to something
less than fully loving arms why that
would he admitting defeat. those
interviewed seemed to say.

But it was good balance from a
journalistic standpoint. though slightly
doubtful as the overall view of those in
Canada, and a “spit in the eye" from the
view of some conservative minded people.
the VFW not withstanding. as the next day.
last Tuesday. its convention unanimously
voted disapproval of any such action by
the president. which. as the press
dutifully reported. brought out Senator

The story might have ended there; in
fact, it did for most of the reporters
covering it. since they generally gave little
attention to one VFW leader, who after
disowning Mister Ford‘s proposal. added
that Dick Nixon should have no amnesty
either as no man is above the law. Perhaps
the VFW spokesman‘s political blood was
keener than most, maybe he was just
lucky, but it was only three days later that
Nelson Rockefeller, vice president desig-


nate. said it: Dick Nixon has had enough.
he‘s already been hung, why have him
drawn and quartered also.

And suddenly the story is only
beginning. It‘s about a political deal, or a
gracious compromise. depending on your
particular point of view. Here we have.
according to the Defense Department,
49,500 deserters and draft dodgers — how
about exchanging their conditional
amnesty for that of one slightly used


Dick Nixon at one point in regard to
amnesty of any kind, but then his appeal
was always essentially emotional and
evangelistic. Still. his argument was
simple enough: Trust in me, I'm a man of
peace. and off he would go dropping the
names of world leaders he had negotiated
with; trust in me, I‘m a man of goodwill
with America’s best interest at heart, he
said as he spent two years lying about the
Watergate coverup — all in prime time of

But the problem isn‘t that Dick Nixon is
a super salesman because that is his
nature and. as president. it was probably
his prerogative. The problem was and. as
last week partially shows, still appears to
be that news reporters tend to gloss over
and misperceive any news item connected
with him. deferring to “the balancing of
the story.“ with the result being that most
people don't know Dick Nixon from his

One of the more recent examples of this
reporting was in the spring and summer
when the press generally would every day
trot out the two supposedly opposing sides
on the House Judiciary Committee. One
side would tell how much more guilty
Nixon was. while the other side would
explain how less implicated he was
becoming. But few reporters bothered to
mention that Nixon was still saying he was
innocent, and no reporters asked their
“sources“ why he thought that.

THE GENERAL theory there is that the
press is still afraid of being marked

publicly by Nixon as The Enemy. Perhaps.
but I suspect being The Enemy comes
more from the journalistic probing which
makes for public despair rather than
understanding. the reporting which makes
one think of Howard Cosell interviewing
the wounded prime minister in Woody
Allen‘s “Bananas". ”Tell me, sir,“ says th
broadcaster. “how does it feel to be
assassinated?" “Arrrggghhh.” says the:
prime minister.

Our society sounds almost as incoherent
at times. but if one can make sense out of
the gargled groan, it seems to be saying.
“Stop asking stupid questons and help
me.“ Indeed; many of those Americans in
Canada are friends and former neighbors,
but Dick Nixon . . . well.it‘s awfully hard to
be the friend of. much less give amnesty
to someone you don‘t even know.

There are other figures which show that

Drop-add: a sea of madness and insanity

Kernel Staff Writer

You know it‘s going to be a bad year for drop-add
when they put up a sign that says. “Memorial
Coliseum. Population 16,742.“

I made the mistake of trying to drive over. The
Coliseum is a 20-minute walk from my apartment.

IT WAS a 30-minute drive. The traffic light at Euclid
and Rose was not being good to Euclid Avenue traffic
at all. Cars were backed up halfway to Chevy Chase.

When the line finally started to move. some students
walked out in front of me like they didn't care. I locked
up my brakes and swore. They smiled and waved.

The parking lot beside the Coliseum was open to
anybody. That is to say. they weren‘t towing away cars
that didn't have stickers. That is not to say there was
available parking space.

(‘ARS WERE double and triple parked. perched on
medians. shoved under bushes. leaned up against light
poles. Seven or eight cars were circling the lot like
hungry buzzards.

Whenever somebody walked near the lot. one of the
cars would follow him closely until he got to his car and
would hover close by until he vacated his parking
space. I thought this looked like a good system.

I looked around and spied a woman walking onto the
lot. so I whipped the car around and followed her.

SIIE (‘L'T straight across the lot. out the other side
and walked on down Harrison Avenue.

I finally found a spot and gathered up my papers. I
went across the street to the Coliseum.

There were at least 2.000 people in front of the place.
I helped them mill around for five minutes: then the
doors opened and everybody went inside.

THE INTERIOR temperature of the Coliseum was 97
degrees. People were standing in line, fanning
themselves with whatever was handy. slowly moving
toward a row of tables.
