Cuts (Continued from Page 1) 99 win Hansen scholarships ; LOGAN — Ninety-nine students ihave been selected by the Dane G. JHansen Foundation to share $111,000 Jin scholarships. ' The money will be paid to schools of the students' choice. The total will ^grow to $177,000 if winners of renew- iable scholarships maintain sati- Isfactory progress at the college or luniversity level. \ Winners of six major awards, the ; Leader of Tomorrow scholarships, ;will receive stipends of $3,500 per ;year for four years if satisfactory •grade point averages are main• tained. 1 The Leader of Tomorrow winners are Veronica Wilson, Concordia; David Camarata, Hays; Brett Leopold, Hoxie; Karen Spiegel, Formoso; Mary Wilson, Oberlin, and Ron Wasinger, Russell. Also awarded were 48 Hansen student scholarships of $1,250 each, 40 vocational-education scholarships of $500 each, four theological scholarships of $1,500 each, and one postgraduate scholarship of $4,000. Almost 600 students from the 26 eligible counties of northwest Kansas -applied for scholarships in the 1985 Hansen Foundation competition. Members of the screening board are Mrs. H.W. Reece, Scandia; Mrs. if/ Abuse (Continued from Page 1) year. : State efforts to verify program di• rectors' complaints have come up 'empty, said Robert Barnum, SRS i commissioner of youth services. ', "It sounds good to say someone has been pulled because of money, but ;that simply hasn't been the case. Our treatment philosophy is in a state of transition that service providers are having a hard time accepting. Instead of quickly turning to foster care, we're doing everything we can to maintain the family unit." Backing the SRS position is a 1980 federal mandate that favors keeping • families together. Children are re- J moved only as a last resort. Foster ; care is no longer seen as a quick fix. ; -: "Empirical evidence has shown that children want to be raised in their own home with their own family," said Jan Waide, director of SRS youth placement and family services. "When children are taken out of the home they assume the guilt. They think it's their fault or that they're bad, which has had the effect of punishing the victims. "Children have been trying to tell us this for years, but it's only recently that we've begun to listen," Waide said. The change in policy is reflected by 1979 figures showing 4,180 children in Kansas foster care placements outside the home; by 1985 the figure dropped to 2,640. At the same time, reports of suspected child abuse went from 13,710 in fiscal 1979 to 27,000 expected in fiscal 1986. So although reports of child abuse increase, fewer children are being taken out of their homes. For your information Irven Hayden, Atwood; Raymond Lappin, Logan, and Calvin Harbin of Hays, advisor.

THEOLOGY Thomas Brady, Phillip Fischer, John Goering and Sandra Jellison. POST-GRADUATE Sandra LeRock, Hays. ACT score of 15, said Al Tiller, admissions director. High school seniors entering college typically have an ACT score between 18 and 20. This year in the Salina school district the average score was 20.1. In Kansas the average was 19.1 and nationally the average was 18.6. Marymount Admissions Director Dan Kunzman said he has "taken a chance" on some students with ACT scores below 13 because "I'm not comfortable with a four-hour test making or breaking a student's admission to Marymount.'' "The ACT was not sent down on stone tablets from Mount Sinai," Kunzman said. "There are lots of successful people for whom that test didn't mean a thing. It's only a tool, nothing less." Johnson has recommended, however, that Marymount Academic Dean Bill Medland be appointed to oversee a committee reviewing applications to the college, and that candidates with scores lower than 13 be carefully reviewed. "There may be an occasion to make an exception but you have to do it on an academic basis," Medland said. "We hope this will improve our retention (of students)." Kunzman agreed the student attrition rate is high, hence his enthusiasm for a proposed Office of Freshman Services. Kunzman, who said he has seen 35 percent of the incoming freshman class in past years depart before the start of their sophomore year, said some schools are phasing out their admissions offices and hiring "enrollment managers." "They're not just charged with getting them here but, in effect, keeping them here," he said. "The point is you need someone whose job it is to help those freshmen get their waterwings." The poor farm economy has made competition for students in the central and western parts of the state even tougher, Kunzman said. Schools such as Kansas State and Fort Hays State universities are becoming more aggressive recruiters. "Our competition is K-State and Fort Hays. It's the myth you can't afford a private education," he said. Kansas Wesleyan President Marshall Stanton said KW officials "are not pleased that our sister college has lost enrollment." Cooperation between the two colleges has always been good, particularly where Marymount students register for classes at Kansas Wesleyan that aren't offered at their school and vice-versa. "We cross register those people," Stanton said. "We have done that for years and plan to continue doing it." Stanton said Kansas Wesleyan and Marymount have different approaches to athletics. "Kansas Wesleyan is not a scholarship school like Marymount," he said. "Athletes get no more or no less financial aid than any other student. We've attempted to emphasize athletics as a motivator to get students to come to college." Stanton said KW has been successful because it doesn't play on a highly competitive level with Board of Regents schools, for instance, and can pay for its sports programs with student tuition revenue. "We're in a conference where everyone is supposed to be equal," he said. "When you move into that competitive status where you're Candidate says he's fighting bad images By JUDITH WEBER Staff Writer Having limited government experience is both a help and a hindrance to his campaign, Larry Jones said Saturday. Jones, Wichita, a contender for the Republican nomination for governor in 1986, was in Salina Saturday to attend a reception for Jones Anthony Tilmans, the new president of Kansas Technical Institute. A new face in the political arena can signify a new approach, Jones said. "I don't carry any baggage from prior political activities," he said. On the other hand, he will have to fight to overcome the negative connotations of having his campaign bear the labels of "Wichita" and "business." Jones said he also had to overcome the Wichita label when he was appointed to the Kansas Board of Regents in 1984. He was the first Wichita State University graduate to be appointed to the board. The board was not hostile to Jones, but did label him, he said. Jones said his being elected chairman of the board eight months after his appointment signified that he had defeated the negative image. The candidate also said he isn't sure what others mean when they call him the "business candidate." Jones was president of the Coleman Co. from 1971 through 1984. "I believe my managerial skills will transfer to government," he said. "I understand the job. Many of its aspects I've done before." There are eight declared and potential candidates for the Republican nomination. The question for the Republican party is not who will win the primary, but whether or not the party has a candidate who can win the election, Jones said. Jones has said he intends to propose initiatives to help Kansas develop more jobs, but he said Saturday that he will not discuss specifics until his appearance at the annual Kansas Day activities next weekend in Topeka. "Whatever we've been doing, it hasn't been working. There needs to be a change." Jones said that economic development needs to be tied in with utilization of state university resources, which would enhance both education and economic development. The Legislature needs to thoroughly study the state's budget before it decides on a sales tax increase, he said. "We've got to be awful sure it's necessary and have to plan for what to do with it." Jones also said agriculture is a major issue that should be addressed at the state level. It's easy for the state to avoid the issue and think of it as a federal problem, he said. Jones raised his family on a farm and said he has compassion for farmers' problems. "It would not be ignored by me," he said. buying students for particular sports you move into a different arena. We don't want to be in that arena. It's a knotty problem." Kansas Wesleyan's athletic budget for this year is $234,000, Stanton said. Marymount's total athletic budget for 1985-86 is about $280,000. "I do not want to be critical because Marymount has used its sports programs effectively,'' Stanton said. Former Marymount Board of Trustees member Fred D'Albini thinks a proposed cutback in basketball, the school's lone revenue producing sport, will hurt. "I think in the long run its going to make it more difficult for them because they had a good name because of basketball and at least they knew where Marymount was," D'Albini said. "You can't say what it's worth. I doubt you'd get very many students that said they came to Marymount because of basketball. But if you dug down and found out how they heard about Marymount—then you have to decide how important it is. It's a tough decision," he said. Don Puterbaugh, a San Diego sophomore recruited to play baseball at Marymount, thinks the faculty in the business department, his major, are well qualified. And he likes school. But without his $1,800 athletic scholarship he likely would have gone elsewhere. "I think it'll discourage a lot of people from coming," he said. "Most of the people here are in athletics and if you take away scholarship money you're going to reduce it (enrollment)." Another student, Daniel Cummings, a senior at Marymount, isn't concerned for his own education, but fears the cutbacks may keep future students away. "If they hear everything's being cut they won't want to come," he said. John Maguire, 1511 Stapler, is president of Marymount's alumni association. "I don't watch basketball," he said. "I'm not a basketball fan. But I hope the trustees of the college and the president together look very hard at what they're doing and the future of what they're doing." Maguire said he f irst learned of the proposed cutbacks at an alumni meeting Jan. 9. "They suprised us. They seemed like they came rather quickly," he said.
