First Kansan to fly snubbed by hall Kansas Aviation Hall of Fame chooses Cessna executive for award By The Associated Press TOPEKA — When he died in 1950, an obituary described Albin K. Longren as "the pioneer-aviator of Kansas." He was the first person to build an airplane and fly it in the state. Longren's barnstorming tours brought him fame throughout the Midwest, but he also gained recognition in aviation circles for his design and engineering work. His innovations included a pressed-fibre fuselage and folding wings that allowed one plane model to be stored in a garage. But Longren still is not a member of the Kansas Aviation Hall of Fame, his nomination having been passed over this year. That angers the Rev. Richard Taylor, a retired United Methodist minister and amateur historian from Topeka who has spent two decades researching Longren's life. He brought Longren's story to the attention of the Kansas Aviation Hall of Fame in Wichita. "He has a lifetime of accomplish- T SALINA CITY COMMISSION Regents set to review admissions plan Plan would require a 2.0 grade point average in precollege classes By The Associated Press •, "•— "' •' '' ~~ TOPEKA — Eighth-graders in Kansas schools get the word this week on what will be required of them to qualify for admission to the state's six universities when fhey enter as freshmen in the fall of 2001. * And, it became clear Monday they will have little room for er- far. ! Stephen Jordan, executive director of the Kansas Board of Re- fsnts, outlined for the Legislative ducational Planning Committee Ithe required course of study a regents task force recommended to jthe board. [ The board will vote on accepting the recommendations at a meeting Thursday in Wichita. The standards drew a generally favorable response from LEPC members. "I think they've done a good job," said Rep. Cindy Empson, R- Independence, chairwoman of the committee. "They have developed a curriculum that the (school) districts appear to be able to live with." But Sen. Lana Oleen, R-Manhattan, vice chairwoman, expressed concern students and parents may not realize how absolute the requirements are and that they've got to plunge into their studies in the ninth grade. "I'm just afraid for the kids and parents who don't tune in soon enough," Oleen said. "There's no room for error, and it kicks in next fall." "Generally, people think we have captured the essence of the legislation," Jordan said. He said some people questioned whether a unit of foreign language should have been included in the core curriculum but added, "I suppose if we had it in there, we would get comment that it shouldn't be in there." The 14-member task force, which made its final decisions on what to recommend on Oct. 1, was created in May after the 1996 Legislature passed a law requiring establishment of admission standards that will apply to all six universities — at Lawrence, Manhattan, Wichita, Emporia, Hays and Pittsburg. Kansas is one of the last states to require its high school graduates to pass a core curriculum and achieve a certain grade average to be admitted to its universities. The major recommendation is that Kansas students achieve at least a 2.0 grade point average, on a 4-point scale, in a 14-unit precol- lege curriculum in the ninth through 12 grades. The core curriculum consists of: ment," Taylor said. "This is like keeping Babe Ruth out of the Baseball Hall of Fame. It's ridiculous." This year's inductee is Russ Meyer, the chief executive officer of Cessna Aircraft Co. He will be honored Nov. 1, during the Kansas Aviation Museum's annual Wright Brothers Celebration at the Harvey Hotel in Wichita. The celebration is named for the Ohio brothers who built and first successfully flew an airplane in 1903. "The man selected this year deserves to be included, but Longren should have been included years ago," Taylor said. Mike Armour, director of the division of aviation in the Department of Transportation, said the decision each year is made by a committee. So far, only 16 people have been inducted into the Aviation Hall of Fame, including aviatrix Amelia Earhart, astronaut Joe Engle and aviation pioneers Clyde Cessna and Walter and Olive Ann Beech. He noted anyone nominated but not selected will be considered again in two years. "Everyone has an opinion on who's more worthy than others," Armour said. Two private drives in line to get new names Pieschl Court, Allison Terrace residents want new names for streets By CHRIS KOGER The Salina Journal Residents of Pieschl Court and Allison Terrace may be addressing their mail differently if city commissioners continue to agree with their request to change their street names. The two private drives are off Eastgate Avenue on the city's east side. Residents, many of whom only recently found out the streets' true names, want to change them to what they have been referred to in the past. Pieschl Court would become Eastgate Court, and Allison Terrace would become Eastgate Terrace, if commissioners give their blessing. On Monday, the commission approved the request on first reading and a final vote will come next week. Assistant City Engineer Shawn O'Leary said the streets' names came to light after a recent ordinance was passed requiring private drives to display street signs. Pieschl and Allison residents then petitioned to change the names. Other business Also Monday, the commission: • Approved the first reading of an agreement between the city and Crestwood Inc. for fire protection at the cabinet company's new factory at 601 E. Waterwell. If the commission grants final approval next week, Crestwood would pay $26.35 a day for fire protection. •Approved the third phase of the city's vehicle purchase program, which includes four marked and one unmarked police cars. The cars are estimated to cost between $15,000 and $20,000 apiece. •Approved a supplemental contract to Wilson and Co. for engineering services on a wastewater pump station at 1095 W. Crawford. The project includes installation of a water main and three submersible pumps. City / Drainage discussed FROM PAGE A1 That would have to be studied before action is taken. "Water is held there. You might hit that water at 40 miles per hour," causing a vehicle to stall in the road and create further problems, Kissinger said. "We have to find out what the answer is."" The water in that area should ultimately be diverted to Dry Creek, but "how we would get it there and how much it would cost, I have no idea at this time," Kissinger said. About a dozen people, concerned about flooding in their neighborhoods, attended the meeting. "I'm gratified to hear Mr. Kissinger point out they are taking existing homeowners into consideration into their planning," said a man concerned about an apartment complex being built near Central Mall. The man opposed the construction, but Kissinger said the Central Mall stormwater detention ponds are bigger than required by law. ON THE RECORD • Four units of English or language arts, which means taking one full-year course each year starting in the ninth grade. • Three units of natural science chosen from among biology, chemistry, earth-space science and physics. At least one unit must be in chemistry or physics. • Three units of mathematics with two years of algebra and one of geometry required, except applied math I and II can be substituted for algebra I. "• Three units of social sciences, including one of U.S. history, half a unit of U.S. government, half a unit from among world history, world geography or international relations, and one unit from among psychology, economics, civics, history, social issues, sociology, anthropology and-or race and ethnic group relations. • One unit of computer technology.
