Visual And Tactile
Campbell's Sculpture:
often said, "You've got to get the feci of it!"
All of Campbell's work is done by hand. His fingers
are continuously in contact with the stone. For months
(on some pieces) he involves himself in the process of
feeling the stones out, of learning through his hands
the forces that are inside the stones, in short, of making



that the most vital, living confrontations
his art occur when one is not trying to "underwith
stand" or "appreciate" it, but at moments when the
shield of intellect is lowered and one's whole body,
mind, and soul spontaneously become aware of the
sculpture's simultaneous existence in space-tim-

the sculpture.
This perception by physical sensation from discrete
skin organs is not only an important factor in creating
the art, but is also a prime means of appreciating it.
The strong geometry of "Homage to stonehenge" is
freed and illuminated in counterpoint by the manual
history breaking richly forth from its fluid surface. And,
from this approach, a piece as severe as"The Innocent"
has the same warmth and loveliness as human flesh.
Another way of enjoying and being enlarged by
Campbell's sculpture can best be summarized in a statement he once made concerning his method of working.
He said, "The best things happen sideways." Translated
into language somewhat less impenetrable than stone

To speak properly of Kenneth Campbell's sculpture
one would need to retain the unity that is the basis
and reality of his work. This, in my opinion, would
entail the use of his thoughts, his emotions, his existence, and the methods and skills whereby he expresses himself.
To speak thusly one would have to be Kenneth
Campbell and one would have to carve stones. That,
of course, is possible for only one person. We find
ourselves at that
(very treacherous) bend
of the road: art must speak for itself. Any analytical
attempt, any game of critical or historical charades, any
explanation (no matter how well intended or handled)
can only vitiate the art itself. With the reader keeping
this in mind a little more will be, reluctantly, tendered.
Attention to several things can help one more fully
appreciate Campbell's sculpture. His work is, for instance, not only visual, but intensely tactile; the pieces
arc meant to be touched, caressed, felt. As he has

In viewing Kenneth Campbell's exhibition, it is probably a good idea to take it easy; to enjoy his sense
of humor (much evident in this show); to delight in
his attention to "minute particulars," both tactilly
and visually; and to remember that this is the work
of a highly intelligent man who mistrusts intellect save
as a guideline for the all inclusive common sense by
and through which his sculptures are created.

Medical Needs Multiply
But Nurses Are Few

Reports from officials in
scattered parts of the state show
these shortages:
Louisville hospitals have more
than 200 vacancies. TheOwens-borarea could use 25 more
registered nurses. T. J. Sampson
Hospital in Glasgow alone needs
12 nurses. The
Appalachian Regional Hospitals in Eastern Kentucky are short 50.
Lexington's hospitals need at
least 100 fulltime RNs; more than
50 private duty nurses are needed.
A Somerset hospital has only
half the RNs needed. Psychiatric hospitals have only 80 percent of their jobs filled. Bowling
Green needs 15 RNs. The state
Health Department has 15 vacancies, three in depressed Harlan County alone.
As one administrator said,
"There just aren't enough nurses
to go around."
Nor are there enough people
working in allied health fields,
where deficits are considered "urgent" by state health officials,
professional groups, and educators. Several of them have asked
Gov. Edward T. Breathitt to
appoint a special study team to
determine how the shortage can
best be alleviated. It is expected
that the governor will carry out
the request soon.
The nursing shortage in Ken-o

tucky is actually a shortage of
nurses willing to work, the Kentucky Nurses Association says.
There are 8,370 registered nurses
licensed by the state, but only
6,209 are active. And, only 2,826
of the 3,367 licensed practical
nurses listed are working.
Get those nurses to return,
says Nelle VVeller, the KNA's
executive secretary, and "then
let's see if we have a shortage."
How can they be induced back
to work? "Pay them," she demands. The average starting salary at most Kentucky hospitals
has been $300 a month. In larger
cities a general duty nurse has
started at
a month.
Salaries are changing rapidly

It seems unlikely that North
