Worrell both ugly getting used to names parents these Days seem to be shying away from Good Ole traditional names like Joe and John for boys and mar Frances and sue for girls. The Kentucky department for health services this week released its compilation of 20 most popular names for 1989 s babies. Topping the list for the third straight year were Joshua and Ashley. We can pretty Well adjust to the new popular names Erfy a Jason Jessica Elizabeth and Andrew. But More and More parents seem to take on the naming of a child As a creative Endeavor. Its those names that will take a Little getting used to. There re the colourful names like Aqua Green Ivory Golden and beige the spicy names of Curry a Ginger and Cinamon and some real animals in Bear Kitty Sable and Fawn. Then there Are those that May Lead one to believe parents May have been thinking of Home for some children were named the same As Kentucky counties including Grayson jessamine Robertson and Woodford. Think of some of the forms people have to fill out from time to time. Some May get their name mixed up with the county of residence. some Job applications May seem More like a recipe from Betty Crocker than a search for employment we would Lay Odds that 18 years from now a at certain unspecified High school graduations a when those names Are called out for students to walk up and receive their diplomas the la get quite a reaction from the audience. But in the words of William Shakespeare a hats in a name that which we Call a Rose by any other name would smell As by that same Token the Bard probably knew that roses have to Leam to spell their name and even if they did to be Isnit All that hard. Roses done to have to introduce themselves either and they re in no danger of drawing snickers like Ivory Golden Sable jessamine Jones would. A question of expectations the Paducah Sun it s unfair to attribute any failure to increase Black Nerdi ment and faculty representation at Kentucky s colleges and universities to bad Faith on the part of those making the Effort. The roots d Low Black academic numbers run much deeper than a school s affirmative action office. It starts in the pubic schools and to a degree its a question of expectations Tow Ard which the Home and peer groups also contribute. Finances Are also a major Factor As is the crucial matter of free mid visual Choice. The question no longer should be which University has enough Black instructors or administrators to meet an Aiti Foldal quota but whether Black professionals Are being closed off from jobs for which they Are qualified. Acting Murray state president James Booth pointed out that retention of Black what others say faculty members is a particular problem at mus. The Black enrolment Al Murray we As 4.6 percent in 1987 and the target is 6.2 put Ercell by a 1992. But More than pure student numbers. Or. Booth said there is concern Over Black graduation rates which will receive special attention. The number of Black College and University students statewide has been Al Host Flat since 1978, but in proportion to the state s population. The shortfall is not great. With stale Black popu Latum at about 7 percent Black Rodege enrolment is about 6 percent of the total. That s no cause for com place try but what must be recognized is that car flees and universities themselves can help the situation wily marginally the major Burden rests elsewhere.

None of them Desenze to be put in adult jails. Mildred Aukerman Frankfort done to oversimplify South Africa what Little Hope there is that the american people will understand even a modicum of what is going on in South Africa in the months and years ahead depends on grasping at least the Basic elements of the racial and ethnic situation there. It is natural enough for americans to assume that South africans race problem is not unlike our Owtis with the significant difference that the Blacoe there outnumber the Whites nearly five to one. Instead of being outnumbered by the Whites As Here by something on the order of six or seven to one. We further assume that South africans Black population is More or less comparable to of Rowtie. In terms of cultural level background and desires. Armed w Ith these assumptions All of w Holch Are wholly mistaken. Americans quickly come to the conclusion that a the Blacks a Are entitled to take Over South Africa . It s bad enough to have such King sized misconceptions floating around at All. But it is vastly More unfortunate when they turn up in an ordinarily intelligent journal of opinion like the new Republic from which a Good William rusher syn Caad Cote rms Many of americans most Influent Lial people primarily but not liberals tend to derive their information and their opinions. 1 have before me an article from the March 12 Issue of the new Republic entitled a Mandela it was written from Johannesburg by one John Carlin who is described As the Southern Africa correspondent of the Independent of London. It is largely in Praise indeed one is Temple to say a worship Quot a of Nelson Mandela. But it discusses the forthcoming negotiations Between Mandela and state president . De Klerk with considerable perspicacity and at least in comparison with most other such articles commendable balance. If it were True that the coming negotiations will be essentially a Bila teral affair Between Nelson Mandela a african National Congress and de Klerks White regime. Carling a article would constitute a splendid analysis. But. Alas that Isnit True. It is. In fact very nearly the exact opposite of the truth. At the bargaining table will be at least a dozen other groups most though not All of them Black. Among those present you May be sure will be the shrewd and articulate chief mangos thu but Hevezi. Political Leader of the Zulu nation pop. 6 million who detests apartheid every bit As much As Nelson Mandela does by t also detests Mandela s closest ally the South african communist parly. Also present in person or by proxy will be the leaders of several african Christian churches one of which boasts 5 million member Sall far More conservative politically than the Anc. Entitled to representation too will be the elected leaders of the various Black Home umps. Speaking for the nearly Lulf of All South african Blacks who still live Tri Bally organized in their ancestral areas. Pitcher. Funny. The braves once had a woman w Ortung in the pubic relations department who gave the press what the manager called a negative the braves fired her. Vav hat other kinds of statistics docs a team 40 games out of first place have by and Tunny. The braves said they picked Ernest p. As their spokesman instead of coming up with a team so an for this season if there is one which was also pretty smart since the slogans they came up with in the past were so bad. Like the 89 slogan a one crazy it was crazy All right. It we As crazy for anybody to pay Money to go out arid watch those bums play. So in a Happy with Ernest p. Worrell and if there does happen to be a baseball season in 1990, i Hope he can still find work after its Over. Piper Plummer Staif Amer trash makes Falls ugly since i recently moved to the Tri county area and it recently began to get warm i decided to get out and see the Countryside. So i went to the most natural spot a Cumberland Falls. I have always Felt this area of the state in one of the most Beautiful and As a matter of fact it was one of the bonuses that help Ted me make Rny decision to move to the area. I remember on my countless trips to South Carolina when i was in school driving Down the interstate with the window Down each August thinking about How Beautiful the scenery was. On my trip out this past sunday i saw something entirely different. The whole View was amazing and a Little frightening. Upon closer inspection i discovered that Cumberland Falls has been turned into Small garbage dump. I was appalled. Then i became embarrassed. There was a Good crowd at the Falls sunday quite a of them from out of state and they had to see the mess too. On my Many family vacations As a Young child we used to visit other states National Parks and there was always a Little trash around but what i saw Al the Falls was inexcusable a we Hole garbage dump has gathered in the rocks along Side of the River just past the Falls. 1 his garbage does no to Only consist of paper that travelling tourists May have thrown Down As is often the excuse supplied but is Large pieces of equipment. For a refrigerator. Signs around the Park say no littering and there Are quite a Miles of Road leading to the Falls that Are apart of the adopt a Highway program. It seems that the roads Are not the Only thing needing to be adopted. Lihzis summer i visited Niagara Falls and besides the rude food servers and the other obvious differences Cumberland Falls has the same ability to draw visitors. Local and state politicians Are always trying to get extra funding for the Parks so More tourists both state from Kentucky and nationwide will visit them. But i ask Why would anyone want to visit a garbage dump before we. As a state can ask for More funding we As a Community need to clean up the Parks. 1 know we get enough lectures everyday on How the environment is being ruined but is and until we begin doing something about it i Don t think we can blame Lack of funding on Low tourist numbers. The tradition of dumping trash is one that needs to be broken. I realize there Are no Quick or easy answers to the trash problem. But the solution to the Falls problem is quite simply quit throwing your trash there.
