Kilpatrick o pinions HerAldZritung General Manager Robert Let me if I to a matter we Were talking about a few weeks ago and how to handle Todays text is taken from a recent sentence in Tirrie It wasnt a poor sentence It had to do with the consequence of nuclear war As ground temperatures plummet by as much as 40 degrees F and the sun is crops in Nebraska and the Ukraine in the Soviet Union My thought is that generally it is a good idea to keep subjects and verbs within shouting distance of each In this I would have suggested a simple recasting As ground temperatures plummet by as much as 40 degrees F and smoke obscures the crops perish in Nebraska and the In this all three verbs march neatly together in the active voice we have eliminated the passive is ob I love verbs and more verbs a matter we Were talkinc cpnroH by mainly we have put the subject crops arm in arm with its predicate As We have won a nice accented syllable to end the This is writing as opposed to writing Not long ago a church bulletin came my way Members of the thinking it better to acquire the property now than to wait for several when the price may have risen have decided to go ahead The sentence ached to be carved into two sentences Members of the vestry have decided to go ahead at once with the purchase of the Magruder Our thought is that it is and so There are times when intervening words and phrases cant conveniently be put anywhere else they have to fit between subject and But it is a sound rule to snuggle when you as close as two Department of Hold the Line The English word cohort goes back a long At one time its meaning was It identified a company of 300 to 600 in fantrymen who formed onetenth of a Roman Later the meaning was expanded to embrace In our time the meaning has been further expanded to embrace any company of persons united in a common More a cohort in statistics is a group of individuals sharing a common Voters between the ages of 18 and 55 constitute a Not long ago a writer for The Miami Herald reported on acUvia SuzeUe who along with cohort Lynn Gillespie pulled off the release of a jar of cockroaches in the White I know that Websters New Ninth sanctions the use of cohort in the sense of companion or but all of us who were weaned on Ceasars Gallic Wars will have trouble with the image of a singular In my book a cohort is a whole group of Its too neat a word to abandon without a New word to me It cropped up a few months ago in a story in the about taxpayers in Clackamas They pungled up in I had never before met but Web sters New Ninth says it has been around since It means to make a payment or Because of my standing objection to outoftown I would have to caution against its After why should we make our readers stumble But isnt it a lovely verb How far is it to Geneva Washington Today Reagan making changes before term By DONALD ROTHBERG AP Political Writer WASHINGTON A week before President Reagan delivers his inaugural address from the steps of the the outlines of his second term are emerging and it may require a scorecard to identify the players and keep track of the shifting administration game Wholesale changes in the White House staff and three new Cabinet secretaries have been an nounced and more are certain to All this coming only two months after the president said hed be pleased to keep the same team through his second four More tantalizing than the personnel shifts are the hin low the president will try to deal with the two issues of the day the economy and EastWest Consider the gamesmanship going on between the White House and Congress over who will bite the politically loaded Social Security During his first presidential debate with Democrat Walter Mondale last Reagan A president should never say but Im going to violate that rule and say I will never stand for a reduction of the Social Security benefits to the people that are now getting At his news conference last Reagans recollection was of a position a shade less He recalled saying he would resist any reduction in a position somewhat short of will never stand for a And if Congress bit the bullet and adopted by an overwhelming majority a oneyear freeze on Social Security cost of living Reagan said he would have to look at Just to make certain Congress understood where the onus would be for such a the White House said the next day that the president was thinking in terms of a majority of at least the margin needed to override a Senate Republicans are leading the move to freeze the cost of living often referred to by the Reagan also was asked how firm was his op position to increasing taxes and scaling back his budget request for the He was adamant on those two A tax in crease would derail the economic he told As for the it already had cut back its If the presidents first term is any guide to his a way might be found for some revenue enhancement which the administration will insist is not a tax increase and the Congress will take the initiative to cut back on the request for The recent movement toward resumption of arms negotiations created a far different mood than the days when Reagan was referring to the Soviet Union as an evil But perhaps the most most eement absolute verification is In the conservative opposition to arms control agreements such as the SALT II treaty was based in part on lack of ironclad Was this an indication that in his second his chance to establish his place in Reagan is willing to soften that stand EDITORS NOTE Donald Rothberg is the chief political writer of The Associated WJACWALLY
