commercial purposes, was approved tentatively by an interim
study commission yesterday. The new section of the act was
compiled by the Legislative Research Commission.

Kentucky wants federal aid for businessmen. farmers and
others hit with some $428 million in cold-weather damages and
losses, but first federal officials must check the figures. a state
disaster official said yesterday. “There has been no word from

Arnett on the state Division of Disaster and Emergency Services.
“Officials from the Federal Disaster Assistance Administration
are in here now.“

An additional 12 billion cubic feet of natural gas has been

“We have concluded that metropolitan school desegregation

President Carter and Congress. “School segregation is most
acute in our cities where the majority of black and Hispanic
American children live and attend racially isolated public
schools." the commission observed.

PresidentCarter nominated U. S. Circuit Judge Wade Ii.

Phillips has fast food, friendship

Kernel Staff Writer

In this age of supermarkets. fast-

food chains and other impersonal
corporate operations. there still
exist small. homey businesses that
can never be replaced.

Phillips Market is such an place. It
has a warm. welcoming at-

The owner and manager, Mrs.
Anna Phillips. is a small (less than 5-
t'eet tall) gray haired lady resem-
bling the ideal grandmother from
the Dick and Jane readers. Her store
has operated from its corner at Prall
and Limestone streets (across from
the Matthews Building) for the past
l5 of its 40 years of existence.

People from all walks of life shop
at Phillips. from children buying
snadrs after school to doctors. at-
torneys and other professionals.

Students are steady customers not
only because of proximity, but the
wide assortment of prepared sand-
wiches and other items made to
order. are also alluring factors.

“it really gets hectic here at lunch
time." Mrs. Phillips said. standing
behind the counter where. along
with three employes. they squeeze

. past one another in the small space

to tally purchases on the register.

“Everyone is in such a hun'y that
we try to make sure no one ever has
to wait more than 10 minutes unless
it's his choice.” she said.

Starting at 8 am. Mrs. Phillips
said, “We make up everything
possible in advance;" which in-
cludes packaged salads and 500
assorted sandwiches. Favorites are
hot dogs. homemade Barbecue and
the Phillips special. which consists
of three kinds of meats. cheese. and
dressing on a sesame seed bun (say
that in 5 seconds).

Packed into the narrow three
aisles of the store are a wide
selection of chips. cakes and candy
and coolers of soft drinks to round
out a meal.

Incorporating a deli with the
grocery store was Mrs. Phillips‘
idea. She is armed with 31' 2 years of
thorough Kresge training in mer-

always closes a sale with a “thank

store. died in 1953. Now the business

Ma’intaining employes seems to be
no problem. The eight hired persons
have worked from two to lo years for
Mrs. Phillips (with the exception of
part-time college students who
occassionally fill in between
classes). "When they come. they
usually stay." she said.

Senate approves insurance policy

Kernel Staff Writer

After extended debate last night,
the Student Senate agreed to en-
dorse an insurance program offered
through Kentucky Central Life Co.

Under the insurance policy.
students would pay $32 per year for
$10. 000 worth of insurance.

During the debate Michael
llammons. law senator. questioned
John Marcum. a Ky. Central agent
present at the meeting. if his
company could operate a program
without SG‘s endorsement. .

Marcum said they could. but Ky.

Central asked for SG‘s arpport
because "when people buy in-
surance polides. an agent must be
present to witness the signing." in
order for it to be valid. Marcum
explained. “With this policy (an
agent) doesn‘t have to be present."

Jennie Tichenor. nursing senator.
objected to supporting the bill
saying the senate's actions were
"dangerous We are giving these
people free PR andit sounds like we
are endorsing them.“

President Carter‘s annnouncement Saturday
that he will send a diplomatic corp to Vietnam
this year represents an opportunity for a
meaningful settlement of disputes and an end to
hostile relations.

During the campaign, Carter repeatedly said
he would reopen negotiations with the Viet-
namese government in order to settle once and
for all the question of the US. servicemen
missing in action (MIA’s)

Many thought that meant reconvening the
Paris talks called in November by the Ford
adminisrratjon, but Carter chose Hanoi instead.
His selection of the Vietnamese capitol as a
negotiation site shows a willingness to approach
the meeting as an open, peace-time process.

\lhatever conclusions are reached concerning
the MIA‘s should be of great importance in
removing the lingering doubts their families
have faced. Even if the talks don't result in the
return of MIA‘s, a determined effort will at least
convince the public that its government is trying
to resolve what has been a highly emotional

But the negotiations also present an op-
portunity for serious search for common ground
on other post-war issues that were never
resolved. Foremost in the minds of the Viet-
namese will be the recovery money they were to
receive under the terms of the Paris Peace
Treaty of 1973.



GOOD Moemr

e ‘ ' ‘
Waist. ..r



Sincere negotiation
can end MIA doubt

The US. position until now has been that no
such payments would be considered until all
MIA’s were accounted for. The Vietnamese,
meanwhile, have insisted that they have
delivered the most complete list available.

The polarity of these two positions was most
clearly evident in November when the US. alone
vetoed Vietnam‘s bid for admission to the United

Certainly U.S.-Vietnam relations are now
stalemated. but recent developments indicate
that a reevaluation of the US. position could
open diplomatic lines.

A special Congressional committee reported in
December that no Americans were still im-
prisoned in Vietnam and found no evidence to
support theories that any US. servicemen were
still alive.

This study, confirming Vietnamese claims,
and a sincere atmosphere in the upcoming
negotiations. should enable Carter to make an
accurate determination about the true fate of the
MlA‘s. Once this is accomplished, the US.
should move quickly to repay the people of
Vietnam for their suffering.

The terrible memories of a useless conflict
that are shared by Vietnamese and US. people
can never be erased, but the transition to
peaceful coexistence can be initiated through a
determined negotiating effort.

Hostile child

in response to the commentary in
the Feb. 10 Kernel titled “More on
ways to control drivers, walkers,
bikers" submitted by Rich Mace-
mon, it is my suggestion that anyone
knowing this child, “Flip him the
bird,” if they feel comfortable with
such immature acts.

It’s very unclear to me as to how
life will be “more enjoyable for all”
if the students, staff and personnel of
this University community follow a
policy that encourages flipping the
bird, slashing tires and hitting
bikers and pedestrians.

I find it completely understand-
able that many people are upset and
frustrated with the conditions des-
cribed by Mr. Macemon and I don’t
feel his suggestions offer us very
intelligent solutions to these prob-
lems. At most, he seems to have
given a population of adults permis-
sion to commit acts approximating
those of a juvenile delinquent.

Frankly, I am surprised that the
Kernel wasted their ink on such an
article. Why not print some infor-
mation that would help solve these
campus annoyances by offering
something constructive?

A logical solution to me would
seem to include asking campus and
metro police to crack down and
consistently enforce such laws as
those pertaining to jaywalking,
illegal parking and bikers. Ask them
to give pedestrian tickets and tow
more cars when they are parked

It won’t take very many tickets
before we start seeing some modi-
fied behavior. If people start slash~
ing tires I’m afraid there are going
to be a lot of innocent people directly
or indirectly hurt by the hostility
generated through such acts, , . .. _

It is my sincere suggestion that all
those attracted to Mr. Macemon’s
ideas make an appointment at the
University Counseling Center as
soon as possible.

Who's ducking?

We were amazed with the letter in
the Kernel from Jim Thomas, the U
of L student, concerning the refusal
of UK to play Louisville in basket-
ball. First, he referred to those who
attend I "K as “thousands of students
with IQ‘s of three or less,” a
completely logical way of starting
out an argument such as this.

We couldn’t believe that a student
from the l'niversity of Louisville.
the major learning center of North




America (and perhaps the entire
world), should even write to the
school paper at the University of
Kentucky, just a small secular
school down the road from the
illustrious U. of L.

But why don‘t we play them?
Louisville is a established “power-
house” in a established league with
other powers such as Tulane, St.
Louis, Georgia Tech, and Florida
State (whom UK barely squeaked
by). Beating competition like this,
who could argue that Lousiville
couldn’t mop up in the SEC.

It’s amazing that Louisville has
had a winning season with that kind
of schedule. Then look at the
independent teams they’ve played in
just the last two weeks; Rhode
Island, Southwestern Louisiana and
Long Island, all with well estab
lished basketball traditions.

An established “powerhouse”
such as Louisville should have no
trouble knocking off other teams,
but why is it that in the last two
years they don't lose any games in
the national tournaments at all until
they get in the situation where if
they win that next game they play

Now who’s ducking who? Come
on, let’s be realistic!! The only
reason Louisville wants to play UK
is so they can sell out Freedom Hall
(for once)!

Sorry, Nick

Pity poor Nick Martin, the bleed-
ing-heart paranoid liberal who
claims .a responsible writer in

. pursuitof Truth made-(him. sound

like a dolt. Tsk, tsk. For fear of
losing my status as an outstanding
judge of character, I must agree
that Nick Martin is not, I repeat. not,
a dolt.

Actually, Nick is a dork. You see.
a dolt is someone who is really not to
blame for his incompetence for one
reason or another. But a dork is
different, someone who had his
senses about him at one time, but
has yet to find himself, and ends up
as a helpless, bumbling idiot running
around like a chicken with his head
cut off. This is Nick Martin.

Just look at his brilliant and
productive career to date. As a f rosh
at the big State U., Nick be-bopped
over to the campus newspaper office
and proclaimed that he was the Big
G‘s gift to photography. He finally
became offended and quit after
someone told him he had his camera
turned around the wrong way. No

wonder he had so many large shots
ofred eyelids.

But his Royal Cockiness was
unshaken and he ambled next door

unit of the bureacracy where stu-
dents play around with reels and

After staging a mini-revolt of

Evidently, it didn't take the sta-
tion long to find out how incompetent
he was and now he is an unemployed

So, you see, Nick Martin really
isn’t a dolt at all. But he is a dork,
and he does a damn good job of
proving that himself. Sorry, Nick,

According to The Lexington
Leader (Feb. 7. 1977, page A-8), the
National Enquirer was the national
tabloid thathired Dr. Leo Sprinkle to

examine Ms. Stafford. Mrs. Smith, .

and Mrs. Thomas.

Had Phil Rutledge and the Kernel
named the National Enquirer as
Sprinkle’s financial backer, I'm
certain several students would have
given less credence to the women’s

An accessible President makes healthier government



from Washington


After Moo years of the (‘hrrstian era two rival
superpowers have cmcrgcd. either of whom can blast
the other off the earth by mysterious nuclear weapons.
The game is to see whether they do this and commit
suicide. or whether they overcome their mutual hate
and do what is so obviously to their scll-intcrcst. It is
as pretty a test of the survival potential of

homosapicns as you will find: we can all take an
interest in it

So now we are met in the overcrowded auditorurm of
the Executive Ulllt‘t' Building on Pennsylvania

Avenue to watch the latest scene The room is too
small for reporters and they jam the sides waiting for
President ('artcr The floor slants downward. the
carpet is tan. there is a littlc stage at the end with a
lectern and presidential seal. and behind me 1 count 17
motion picture and TV cameras. it is a fairly
low-ceilinged room that heats up with bodies and
spotlights warm as a television booth

Excitement builds as we near 2:30; he has been
president now about three weeks. he has been
interviewed by four reporters from the news agencies
and proved relaxed and competent without saying
much; he has given his fireside chat in a cardigan
sweater and recapitulated rather fuzzy pledges made
in the campaign.

He has issued a pardon to Vietnam war (waders.

and he has taken a series of symbolic steps denoting
simplicity and togetherness. including that nice
inaugural walk from the Capitol. The Carter
preliminaries are all but over now: real action is
required; we have come to the end of the beginning.

At the dot of 2:30 a short. erect man in blue shirt.
bold tie and gray suit walks on the stage. We
awkwardly rise: he motions us down, and then
President (‘artcr starts his first press conference. It is
dominated by that little matter I mentioned at the
beginning. the question of whether we can control that
spiraling nuclear arms race and survive.

He is asked about the confirmation of Paul Warnke
as chief (ZS. delegate to negotiate arms limitation
with Russia. Warnke‘s notions about negotiations
expressed in Foreign Policy magazine in 1975.
alarmed hard-liners. They boil down to this: President
Nixon asserted repeatedly that he couldn't negotiate
successfully with Moscow if we went to the bargaining
table as the world‘s second strongest military power.

Warnke came up with a thought that apparently
never occurred to Nixon or to the Pentagon—that we
had persuaded the Russians. too. that they could not
"bargain successfully" unless they were the strongest
military power. Warnke put it simply:

"If we insist on remaining Number (me. because
there are incalcuable risks in being Number Two. then
the Soviets have the wherewithal to escape that
subordinate position." He said they would seek to be
Number ( me for the same reason we wanted to be. As
Warnke added. every proposal to bargain away
nuclear threats simply stimulates the determination
to be Number (inc in "a mindless buildup."

What to do‘.’ His idea chills the Pentagon and stuns
the \\'ashington-basul “Coalition for a Democratic

Majority“ that has been circulating an anonymous
attack on him among senators: Why not test the
Russians, he asks; why not tell them what we are
doing and make a gesture of restrain ”while calling
for matching restraint" for them'.’

Is not this a terrifying proposal? It shows how soft
he is. He brazenly spells it out: “If the Soviet Union
responds by some significant slowing of its own
strategic arms buildup, we can at the end of the first
six months announce additional moves."

What nonsense: it is all but treasonable! And here is
this man Jimmy Carter at his first presidential press
conference declaring that Warnke is qualified and that

he believes the Senate will confirm him “over— ‘

whelming." Worse. Carter proposes to side-step
obstacles that have held up Salt II treaty agreement
for two years and actually makes a little gesture of
consiliation here and now, just as Warnke urged, each
side to agree to notify the other in advance whenever it
plans to test-fire an [CHM and maybe a three or four
year cessation of nuclear tests. He appears to be
negotiating right from the press conference.

Warnke is being interrogated by a Senate commit-
tee even while Mr. Carter sees the press. Enemies are
trying to grab some extraneous issue: how did Daniel
Ellsberg get the top secret copy of the Pentagon
Papers in 1971? Warnke had a copy, transferred it to a
high security vault at the Rand Corporation when he
left the Johnson Administration (where he was
assistant secretary of Defense); two former aides.
Morton Halperin and Leslie Gelb, jointly authorized
access for Ellsberg. Was Warnke involved?-—Conser-
vatives seem ready to grasp at anything. Confirma-
tion seems inevitable.

...The half hour is up, the first press conference is

over. How did he do? Very well. I thought. He seemed
to me clear, crisp and confident and master of the
occasion. He was splendidly briefed. Kennedy for wit,
Ford for warmth, FDR for virtuosity, but for technical
command, Jimmy Carter. It is also gratifying to feel
that in this Russian negotiating business he is
probably right.

Mr. Carter proposes to have two press conferences a
month—l hope he does. Whether he can take the
adversary relationship remains to be seen. FDR had
two a week: Richard Nixon let five months pass
without one. Walter Lippmann called them, “not a
privilege but an organic necessity." A corps of
knowledgable journalists is ready to question. If Mr.
Carter is serious about getting his views to the public
there is no better way.

“Of all the proceSSes of government in all the lands
of the world this is the single most fascinating.
absorbing...and daring." said commentator Howard
K. Smith, returning to America. way back in 1955.
There is nothing resembling it, he added. "anywhere
in the world;“ the English cabinet, of course,
undergoes question-time an hour a day, four days a
week in parliament: they are the executive in a
collective body.

But here the president speaks for the entire
executive branch. in an ad lib performance. Wilson
was first. It has been a trying experience for many.
But Washington is a healthier city, I think, when the
president submits regularlLto this examination.
