SATURDAY COLUMN
February 6, 1993
The Kansas University School of Law has been taking some hard hits in recent months, the latest being the publication of an internal memo from the KU dean to another administrator relative to funding needs of the school and how he thinks the school compares with the nearby Washburn University law school. There are many questions surrounding the memo, why and how it was “leaked,” the purpose of the leak, the timing and other intriguing aspects of the matter. One thing seems apparent and that is the “leak” was not an accident. It was done for some purpose, good or bad for KU or for Washburn, perhaps to influence future discussions about whether the Topeka university should be taken into the Kansas Board of Regents system, maybe to confuse the issue of what to do about two law schools only a few miles apart in a state with only a 2.5 million population, maybe to try to stir up sufficient controversy to keep the Washburn law school from coming under the umbrella of the KU law school. Or it could have been leaked by someone merely trying to hurt the KU law school, the dean or the chancellor. There could be other reasons, but it was no accident.
GEORGE WILL SHARES HIS VIEW OF AMERICA
February 6, 1993
Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist George Will squirmed a bit in his chair Friday before accepting the William Allen White Foundation National Citation but he didn’t shy away from articulating his vision of America after taking the stage. Will, honored at a luncheon at Kansas University, said the introduction he received before his speech proved “all forms of inflation are painful.”
UNWARRANTED ATTACK
February 6, 1993
To the editor: After praising many of Calder Pickett’s columns in the Journal-World (see letter of Feb. 2), Paul Heitzman concludes with the most negative condemnation imaginable, chiefly because he objects to Pickett’s “subjective manner in which he attempts to judge George Bush.”

MU UNLEASHED CRUEL, UNUSUAL PUNISHMENT
February 6, 1993
If looks could kill, or at least maim, the referees and several Missouri basketeers might have needed a gurney for removal from Allen Fieldhouse Monday night. They were the lookees; KU coach Roy Williams was the looker, with good justification. He’d seen at least two Jayhawks get cruel and unusual punishment from Tigers. Roy wasn’t appreciative of such deportment or pleased by the officials regarding the safety of his charges.
LATE RUN LIFTS BALDWIN, 66-54
February 6, 1993
After a seesaw battle, a bothersome press and a fourth quarter scoring surge fueled Baldwin to a 66-54 win over Spring Hill in high school boys basketball Friday night. Neither team led by more than four points until midway though the fourth quarter, when, with the help of a pesky full-court press, the Bulldogs blew it open with a late scoring surge.

PEACE GROUPS MONITOR NUCLEAR THREAT
February 6, 1993
Although former President George Bush and Russian President Boris Yeltsin signed the START II treaty in Moscow almost one month ago, it still has to be ratified by other members of the Commonwealth of Independent States and the U.S. Senate. Which means local peace groups are still keeping an eye on the nuclear threat, even as they concentrate on other projects.

SW WEST OVERCOMES LIONS
February 6, 1993
There are blown leads, and there are lost leads. After so many of the former, Lawrence High basketball coach Ron Weber said, the Lions had one of the latter.
February 6, 1993
One of the nation’s biggest sacred cows in the eyes of some an “untouchable” is the Social Security benefits so many citizens receive. The time has come to deal with the matter more realistically, no matter how much opponents may howl. We hear a great deal about the need for sacrifices by all of us to bring our national financial structure more closely into line. Just about everyone should be expected to share in such a venture. That means that if other sectors of the populace are going to have to absorb a “sacrifice,” Social Security recipients should be willing to carry their fair share of the load. Any sacrifices suggested by Clinton should apply to all citizens and shouldn’t be based on what is likely to gain the most political support for the new president.

BUFFS LIVE UP TO RANKING, BLAST KU WOMEN, 77-60
February 6, 1993
Theoretically, playing Colorado at home is easier than on the road. In reality, it’s a little like choosing between the Grinch that stole Christmas and a seasick crocodile. Neither alternative is very appealing.
