COMMUNITY EFFORT
October 11, 1992
To the editor: Communities often come together in times of disaster, such as Hurricane Andrew, but seldom during times of prosperity or during day-to-day interactions, except in cases of fund raising for community causes.

SUPPORT OF VIETNAM
October 11, 1992
To the editor: Bob Marsh, in a letter to the editor on Oct. 7, stated with regard to the Vietnam War, “most everyone was morally or philosophically opposed.” That is not correct.

KU CROWD MAY BE RECORD
October 11, 1992

EAGLES PRESENT CHALLENGE TO KC

S APPEAL LURES KU STUDENT TO CLINTON CAMP
October 11, 1992
Democratic presidential nominee Bill Clinton should appeal to students because his views are closer to those of most young voters and because they want change, the leader of a Kansas University student group for Clinton says. “George Bush is completely out of touch with the students and the entire next generation of Americans,” said Jason McIntosh, coordinator of KU Students for Clinton/Gore. “Bill Clinton understands the concerns of students and the concerns of most people who see where George Bush and Ronald Reagan have taken this country.”

THEATER PROFESSOR SUMMONS COURAGE FOR FINAL ROLE
October 11, 1992
Courage in actors and actresses, at least for William Kuhlke, goes far beyond overcoming stage fright. It means having the courage to be artists as well. “You need to be daring,” said Kuhlke, a longtime Kansas University professor of theater and film. “You have to have courage to make that leap.

Bill) Clinton’s plan,” said Dick Carter.

This one belonged to the fellows wearing the uniforms.
