If Larry Gordim t ditor. Tht Fr«« Prtu Let me recite here pome ··f C° ach . Ha y Burwick stood up in chapel at NNC Friday ana shared an amazing talent wilh the assembled studenls - !md one intruder. He lold them that he had. taking his cue from a recent .speaker al chapel, committed to memory a poem ^pronounced pome). And then he preceded to recite: : '' "Here I stand, skeered as can be , Nol knowing what our newspaper will say about me." · ' And there lie was, bare headed at that. You just never know about them basketball coaches. I had been standing (loitering if you prefer) in the , i.yieinily prior to the hour specified for chapel when Burwick ^.suggested 1 come on in and listen to his presentation since he ' b . was on the griddle (or program, as I mentioned above -- lake , .your preference). ''\' For a last-minute fill-in, he wasn't that bad. In fact I /.think most of the students related to what he said; you just i 'ijever know. . . + + + Unfortunately (the silence was beller than this) one !; student did lake advantage of my offer to print rebuttals concerning the issues I dealt with in last Saturday's column. . Uut 1 promised not lo lake advantage by grabbing the last · ;.kord, so here is a comment uy Terry Martin: t .i . ' v - Mr. Gardner: '· ' In regards lo Mr. Sherill's social problems class ... of which I am a member, I feel that you were out of .'.' line in mentioning the conduct of the class without first regarding the behavior of the panel. When the panel opened to the class, it should have dealt with the questions of the class --or was the class actually wanted in the discussion? It seemed that the panel members were more preoccupied with pushing . their views down the throats of the other panel members. If you treat a class of involved college students ·· · · like a group of unconccrning high school studenls the · : outcome will be one of the unconcerning high school ·:·" students. If you wish to be treated with respect try 1 ' giving your respect. If treated like an adult I'm sure most adults will return that favor. ' : · ' Respectfully yours, '·- Terry Martin. . ··~ Usually we gel carried away with our enthusiasm (or the -kind of job being done al the Statehouse and compliment our ·'favorite legislator by suggesting he has trouble un- · derslanding Readers Digest (Remember -- it's wrilten for Ihe level of an eighth grade education) or something similar. -: i The lables have been turned in Louisiana this year where. -a legislator has corrie up wilh a few choice epithets tot the '.-. people who elected him. According to a U'fl dispatch from Baton Rouge, well, I'll just furnish the'entire dispatch. I wouldn't want to distort things any more than some of you may feel UPI already has: BATON ROUGE, La. (UPI) - A legislator says the people who gave him his job -- the voters of Louisiana -have the menlalily of a 16-year-old or a 14-year-old." "-'' Moreover, said Rep. Richard Guidry in a speech "Thursday, they have no idea what's going on cither in the 's'la'te or the nation's capitol. His remarks were greeted with cheers by his colleagues. '''!} Guidry was speaking in favor of a bill to prohibit the Aejjislature from calling itself into special session within 60 ·(lays lo write a campaign reform law. ., "If we're really for good government, don't try to come '.uji' here and tell me we're going to call a $200,000 special 'session lo call for an idiotic, asinine, silly campaign prac- \\ccs law thai you don't need on the books in the first place," .^"uidry said. '·'·' "We tend to give too much credit lo the voters because Ihey really have Ihe mentality of a 16-year old or a 14-year- old. I (ion'l mean to be ugly about this, but I mean that people are taking government for granted and do not participate. They really don't know what the devil's going on in Baton Rouge. They don't know what's going on in Washington. "What Ihe people wanl is something for notbing and it hasn't changed since the days of Jesus Christ." "I'm going !o tell the people of this slate it's hypocritic," Guidry said of the proposed special session. "Just because Rjjchard Nixon was stupid and got caught, you think averybody's a thief?" The measure was approved on an 86-16 vote. :; : You can tell how much enthusaism they have for i'Sunshine taws" in Ihe South -- almost as much as do Idaho legislators. i'.; I have no illusions that such disclosure laws will do any -Rood. !f legislators and lobbyists were honest, we wouldn't inoert Ihe laws in Ihe first place, and if they aren't Ihe laws AWrtainlv won't inhibit their natural tendencies to sidestep ;lhem. marine life is subject Around about The Nampa area OLD TIMERS-Union Pacific Oldlimers will meet at 6:30 tonight al Wengerl Hall.
