A beginning
Pardoned Lexingtonian
’relieved,’ not bitter

Kernel Staff Writer

For Don Pratt, the long ordeal has
finally come to an end. He was one of
13,000 draft resisters who were
pardoned by President Carter last
Friday and he is, in his own words.

Pratt received his draft notice in
1969 and chose to refuse it. He was
convicted for draft evasion and took
his appeal all the way to the
supreme court, which refused in 1971
to overturn the conviction. He
served 20 months of his prison
sentence before being paroled in
1972. Pratt has since then lived
wondering if he would ever be made
to pay the $10,000 fine which the
court meted out to him and then
never collected.

Fa the past two years, Pratt has

operated the Woodland Grocery,
which is located at the corner of
High Street and Woodland Avenue in
Lexington. From “almost nothing,"
he has built a successful business;
one that has become a sort of focal
point for a large, university-related
community. ‘

A lot of folks depend on Pratt’s
grocery because it is one of the few
in the city that makes deliveries.
Now, due to the bad weather, the
demand for that service has in-
creased to the point that he hasn’t
had time to relish his pardon.

“I deliver groceries,” he said,
”and right now I’m making almost
40 deliveries a day."

One of the major effects of Pratt’s
conviction was the loss of his right to
vote. The pardon has restored that
right; Pratt has already re~

they obeyed, but no one should have died or been wounded so
as to pit us against each other. Nor should scapegoats be made

Building on Feb. 5 for the Study
Skills Derby, sponsored by the
University Counseling and Testing

According to Peg Payne, learning
skills coordinator, it’s a sure bet that
this semester’s Derby will benefit all
studaits involved. “It’s a unique
opportunity for students to geta day-
long seminar devoted to study
skills,” she said.

The day will be divided into seven
sections, consisting of lectures and
discussions about various aspects of
studying. For instance, one section
will deal with test-taking strategies,
particularly how to take objective

such as the way questions are

“This time students will alternate
between large lectures and small
workshop applications of these
lectures,” Payne said. “Students
will get more individual attention
this way and to us, it’s important for
them to get actively involved in what
they need to learn.”

Faculty from various depart-
ments will lecture and help coor-
dinate discussion sessions. “It’s
exciting that the faculty has given
its time to the project and the
Counseling Center staff,” she said.

Besides actual study skills, at-
titudes and motivation will be
probed. “Relaxation techniques will
be emphasized," Payne said.
“Students need the right frame of
mind to bring to a test.”

Counselors from the Testing
Center will discuss problems such as
boredom, procrastination,
frustration and restlessness with
studying. At noon there will be a
brown bag lunch and panel
discussion on “What is Fair
Treatment at UK?"

Students shouldn‘t dwell on
failure, Payne said. They need to
learn how to overcome self-
defeating attitudes as well.

“Such (self-defeating) attitudes
may have many sources,” she said.
“For instance, there is a cultural
attitude that says women shouldn't
excel in math, which just isn’t true.”

All interested students are urged
to attend. the Derby. The only
requirement is that students must

Honor societies
choose carefully

Kernel Reporter

' New federal regulations (Title IX)
may have u‘derd educational in-
stitutions to go coed, but most honor
societies still restrict memberships

. to an elite group of students.

Many honoraries go through a
rigorous selection process in
choosing new members. Potential
members are screened thoroughly
and tested or their scholarship and
leadership. They need no less than a
majority vote to join.

Mortar Board, formerly an all-
female junior honorary, has 35
members. Three men are in the
organization and members are
chosen once a year.

Angela Schlafer, Mortar Board
president, said “We haven’t had
much participation out of some of
our men, but some women don‘t
participate much either.”

Mortar Board’s purpose is still to
promote the advancement of
women, accrrding to Schlafer. “The
men know this before they become
members,” she said.

Mini concert goers may find themselves
paying higher prices and squeezing more tightly
together this semester because the University
Club, the Student Center Board and some
University officials are playing hide-and-seek
with each other.

A rumored reduction in the seating capacity of
the Student Center Grand Ballroom has led
Helen Hughes, concert coordinator, to order 200
less tickets than usualfor each mini concert. And
less tickets will mean higher ticket prices,
assuming the entertainment quality remains the

The rumors are centering on renovation of a
small ballroom which is separated from the
Grand Ballroom by a folding partition. This
room serves as a dining area for the University
Club. In the past, the partition has been removed
to increase the size of the Grand Ballroom for
mini concerts.

Student Center Board (SCB) members,
hearing that the smaller ballroom would no

longer be available for use during mini concerts,
didn’t bother to confirm the story before
deciding to order less tickets.

As it turns out, the story isn’t true. Jack
Blanton, vice president for business affairs, said
he isn't aware of any problem with opening the
smaller room for mini concerts. His assistant,
George Ruschell, said the University Club only
uses the room until about 2 pm. every day.

William Biaden, University Club president,
doesn’t seem to know anything about putting a
limit at the use of the room. And Mary Jo
Martens, SC director, said there may indeed he
attempts to open the small room for the mini

All of the‘ different versions of the ballroom
story serve as an example of what can happen
when one side of campus doesn’t know what the
other is doing. The rumors of the change have
been floating around since November.

if SCB President Tom Gaston had given
Blanton a telephone call, there would be no

problems. Or if Gaston had been consulted when

' Blanton came up with the idea of renovating the

room, no doubts would exist as to whether or not
the room could be used.

The University Club also could have helped in
the matter. Gaston told a Kernel reporter that he
has never met the University Club officials,
although he has worked for the SCB for four
years. Apparently neither Gaston nor University
Club officials have made any monumental effort
to get to know one another.

None of this would have required a great deal
of effort. Mertens’ office is a few feet from the
SCB offices. The University Club is located just
upstairs. Blanton’s office is all of 200 yards from
the Student Center. And everyone has

This collective shyness has already led to
needless consideration of a decrease in mini
concert seating. Maybe misunderstandings like
this can be avoided if the University Club, the
SCB and University officials stopped hiding from
one another.

This letter is a mild response to
Dick Downey’s impressions about
Mexican lifestyle witnessed on his
recentexcursion south of the border.
Downey’s portrait of Mexico as a
utopia and Mexicans as prac-
titioners of a dying art
(procrastinating), is misleading.

Mexico comes from a few visits and
logging over three thousand miles on
Mexican highways during Christ-
mas break.

i was reading Downey’s ideology
with great skeptisism when i hit
upon the line which prompted me to
voice my rebuttal—“They’ve
sacrificed the satisfaction and
easiness of material comforts to
which we’ve become accustomed in
this country." Downey makes it
sound like a conscious effort.

All the Mexicans got together and
drove their Buick Electras into a
lake! What did they ever have to
sacrifice? Mexicans were never
given the choice between material
comforts and their present im-
poverished state.

The average annual income of a
Mexican family is less than what
Dot'vney's three week vacation cost.
The spirit of manana (i.e. rejection
of work), '5 prompted by the fact
that the only avenues of laba' open
to the average Mexican is swinging

Jimmy’s job

Successful administration must be open


‘ ,lirrmy Carter has taken the
presi ential oath and has become
our 19th praident. While some may
still doubt his sincerity, I think a
vast majority believe that he wants
to be a great president. To do that,
President Carter must perfect a
method whereby he maintains


contact with the mainstream of
American life along with plainly
laying his ideas and dreams before
the American people

It will be difficult for our new
president to refrain from bending to
the desires of those who were in-
struments in securing his
nomination and election.

Perhaps it is too much to ask that
any man, who owes so much to
certain interest groups, should rise
above the level of party politics and
personal expediency in order to
forge true national unity and a
collective “Americanism.”

It would be naive to assert that
sectionalism, individualism and
other forms of factionalism have not
been a part of American life since
colonial days. However, the
collective idea of being American
first has accompanied, if not
precipitated, those periods during
which the United States approached

As part of blazing this course of
action, President Carter must
assume the role as figurehead of a
new kind of federal government.

the totality of change which will be.

necessary to rejuvenate the com-
mon man's faith in the operation of

A new “prime directive” must be
established whereby the federal
leaders seek to educate, instruct and
assist rather than to dictate and
govern. This scenario does not en-
vision a passive federal government
led by a docile president.

Federal leaders at the top of the
hierarchy must assume the difficult
roll of disseminating information
and proliferating ideas. In the past,
the president and other federal
leaders have hoarded this in-
formation in order to justify the
omniscience of their decision

Examples of the need for this new
brand of federal government are
many, but one comes to mind quite
readily. This pressing contemporary
problem is how to deal with
balancing ever-growing wages and
working demands from labor unions
against the refusal by corporate
management and middle men to cut
profits in order to hold the line on

If we are to avoid the economic
dilemma which besets Great Britain
today, the Carter Administration
must move quickly and effectively
to educate about this problem and to
assist in its easing.

US. News and World Report
stated in November, 1976, that
productivity of American industry
rose only 1 per cent last year. For
several years the quality of work-
manship has declined in this country
putting us at a disadvantage in in-
ternational economic markets.

Nevertheless, during 1976 major



labor unions secured significant
wage increases and a four-day work
week thus contributing to our con-
tinuing, even if somewhat lessened,
inflationary spiral.

Instead of helping to ease the
problem major corporations and so
called “middlemen" have pushed
prices up by refusing to reduce
profits. General Motors recorded
record profits during the latter part
of 1976 and the special year-end
edition of New York magazine
contained a prediction by leading
economists Carter Randall and
Frank Cappello that corporate
earnings will advance between 10
and 15 per cent during 1977.

All the while, “big business" hides
behind a twisted view of the free-
market system and forgets the
premise of common sense which
must underlie any smoothly
operating economic system.

The Carter administration, armed
with this new peime directive, must
educate the common person about
the folly of this game of economic
ownership. It is not ridiculous to
assume that ordinary consumers,
properly informed, can understand
basic economic theory and can
create pressure to assist in the
solution to our present difficulties.

Consumers have been weak as a
collective entity because they have
been ignorant of the causes of our
economic realities and how they as a
group can assert themselves. The
iegalsystem has been a hindrance to
consumer efforts because of
proceedural difficulties in litigating
class-action suits.

The Carter administration can
provide effective leadership in this
area by information dissemination
and the tradtional kinds of
mediation when necessary.

A national consensus perhaps can
not be reached on any of the great
challenges of today—budgets
deficits, welfare reform,
desegregation, .women’s rights,
nuclear disarmanment, unem-

Assuredly we will never reach a
national consensus based on the
facts as long as these facts are
withheld from the common person.

The facts must be told and the
Carter Administration must be
ready to explain and assist rather
than declare and insist. So far, that
seems to be President Carter’s
game plan. For the good of our
nation let’s hope he sticks to it.

The Council on Women’s
Concerns is holding an
organizational meeting
tonight at 7:30 to make plans
for the Spring semester. We
welcome any and all in-
terested women.

The council seeks to

establish a sense of com-
munity among women and to
provide a supportive,
stimulating environment for
them. The specific directions
CWC will take this semester
depend on the collective ideas
and mergies of its members.

We will be having a mon-
thly potluck dinner, and a
series d Coffeehouses which
will begin Sunday, Feb. 13.
The meetings, dinners and
Coffeehouses will be held at
658 South Limestone, next to
the Law School.

if you are unable to make
the meeting tonight and
would like more information,
please call 54-7082.
