THE ROYAL CONGRESS
October 19, 1991
To the Editor: Now that the shameful side show referred to as Senate Judiciary Committee hearings is over, it is appropriate that the public be made aware of all the special privileges and rights the Royal Congress has provided to itself. It is an outrage that this group should sit in judgment of anyone when it has specifically exempted itself from the following laws: Social Security Act of 1933, National Labor Relations Act of 1935, Minimum Wage Act of 1938, Equal Pay Act of 1963, Freedom of Information Act of 1966, Age Discrimination Act of 1967, Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, Equal Employment Opportunity Act of 1972, Title 9 of Higher Education Act Amendment of 1972, Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Privacy Act of 1974, Age Discrimination Act Amendments of 1975, Ethics in Government Act of 1978 and the Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1988.
TREASURY ECONOMIST SEES MODERATE GAIN FOR U.S. ECONOMY
October 19, 1991
The U.S. economy is in for moderate growth during the 1990s but the nation’s long-term prospects don’t look promising unless Americans can increase their savings rate, a government economist said Friday. Sidney L. Jones, the U.S. Treasury’s assistant secretary for economic policy, said that for the U.S. economy to see long-term expansion, productivity must increase. And Jones, the keynote speaker at Kansas University’s 15th annual Economic Outlook Conference, said capital investment and increases in a nation’s productivity are tied to its savings rate.
GREEN TOPS 100 YARDS FOR LIONS
October 19, 1991
Green carried 14 times for 115 yards Friday night in Lawrence High’s 44-18 district football win over Shawnee Heights. Sorry Adam. Michael Cosey went 267 yards and scored five touchdowns in 30 carries.
SATURDAY COLUMN
October 19, 1991
If there were an award for persistence and sustained effort by a government official, U.S. Secretary of State Jim Baker would be one of the top contenders. Since becoming secretary of state in 1989, Baker has traveled hundreds of thousands of miles, perhaps more than a million, representing the U.S. in all kinds of difficult diplomatic efforts, as well as trying to bring about a reasonable, fair blueprint for peace in the Middle East. A little more than a year ago Baker had just completed a massive and successful effort to get a broad coalition of governments to unite in opposing the actions of Iraq’s Saddam Hussein. Not long after completion of Operation Desert Storm, the Soviet Union started unraveling and Baker was active in working with NATO countries in formulating a NATO policy toward the Soviet Union and the emerging independent republics within the U.S.S.R. and on how to hold NATO countries together.
MAN, 30, ENTERS PLEA IN SEX-SCAM OPERATION
October 19, 1991
A Joplin, Mo., man who set up a sex-scam operation in Lawrence last month was found guilty in Douglas County District Court on Friday of misdemeanor charges of attempted sexual battery and obstructing the legal process.

KU STUDENTS ALLEGE SEX HARASSMENT
October 19, 1991
The American Civil Liberties Union on Friday said it was investigating allegations of sexual harassment raised by current and former Kansas University law students against two KU law faculty members. Del Shankel, KU executive vice chancellor, said, “I am highly disturbed that such allegations should be made.” He said KU officials can’t comment specifically about complaints of harassment because KU must maintain confidentiality.
WILLIAMS DOWNPLAYS HIGH RATING
October 19, 1991

S TOO HEAVY
October 19, 1991
Alonzo Jamison isn’t in the best physical condition. “He’s 12 pounds heavier than I’d like him to be. He can go up and down once, then starts looking for the ambulance,” Kansas basketball coach Roy Williams said of Jamison, a 6-6, 245-pound senior forward.
CHILDREN
October 19, 1991
Walking into the red, brick building of the Brookcreek Learning Center, one is struck visually by the tapestry of crayon-art covering the walls.

TONGIE TAMES HOLTON, 23-8
October 19, 1991

FANS PACK FIELDHOUSE
October 19, 1991
Since Late Night with Roy Williams wasn’t really that late, a capacity crowd of 15,800 gathered for the fourth-annual event on Friday night. In previous years, Late Night was held at 12:01 a.m. on Oct. 15, the first day college basketball teams are allowed to practice under NCAA rules.
QBS SHINE IN P-L WIN OVER VALLEY
October 19, 1991
There hasn’t been much reason lately for a quarterback controversy at Perry-Lecompton High. Last year, when the Kaws needed a sub for starting QB Brian Lang, Brian Damme filled in because Mike Kelley was academically ineligible. This year, Damme’s been nursing a broken ankle, so Kelley has gotten the call. Until Friday night.

BALDWIN SHUTS OUT SPRING HILL
October 19, 1991
Baldwin coach Bernie Bierman is convinced intensity alone lifted the Bulldogs to a high school Class 4A district-opening football win Friday night. “It was a good win,” Bierman said of Baldwin’s 22-0 victory at Spring Hill. “But I think defensively we made a lot of mental mistakes. When you play with a lot of intensity, you can afford a few mistakes.”
COUNTY TO CONSIDER TRAFFICWAY RESPONSE

MITCHELL SAVED DAY
October 19, 1991
Disappointed? This 1990 Kansas football team ought to be horribly displeased after blowing those games against Virginia and Kansas State, where victory could have set the stage for a terrific season instead of what may be only a marginal one. But the 1961 Jayhawk Bluebonnet Bowl champions holding their 30th reunion here this weekend also knew disappointment nearly refused to play in the only bowl game a KU team has ever won.
HOMECOMING PARADE DELIGHTS CAMPUS
October 19, 1991
A chilling wind did not deter thousands of Kansas University supporters from turning out Friday afternoon for KU’s Homecoming parade, which was held on campus for the first time in eight years. “We’ve been trying to get it back here for a year, and it’s real exciting to finally see it up here,” said Rob Bletscher, Student Alumni Assn. homecoming chairman.
MONFOLKS!
October 19, 1991
Maybe it’s only a matter of time before Sunflower State corn-growers or oats producers complain that Kansas University sports fans are treating them shabbily by “waving the wheat” after some degree of Jayhawk achievement on the football field or basketball court. Extreme? Probably. But bear in mind that correctness is in, no matter how obtuse it may be.
STATES RETOOLING ECONOMIC STRATEGIES
October 19, 1991
The days when state economic development was as simple as enticing big businesses from neighboring states are long gone, a public policy researcher said Friday. “It isn’t enough to try to bring firms in from the outside. We really have to focus on the internal development of the state,” said Scott Fosler of the Committee for Economic Development in Washington, D.C.
3 AWARDED ELLSWORTH MEDALLION
October 19, 1991

TOUGH TIMES FORECAST FOR RURAL ECONOMIES
October 19, 1991
Although analyses of the Kansas economy’s performance in recent years offer a considerable amount of good news, some areas of the state are feeling left out. During the 15th annual Economic Outlook Conference on Friday at Kansas University, Tony Redwood, executive director of KU’s Institute for Public Policy and Business Research, presented a series of charts documenting an economic reality in Kansas: that population, personal income and employment growth were concentrated in metropolitan areas, most notably Johnson County.
