MAYER COLUMN
April 30, 1994
Kansas has only one NCAA cross-country title. The men who brought home that trophy were here the recent Kansas Relays weekend to celebrate that 1953 feat. It was a further display of the kind of brotherhood that once existed in Jayhawk athletics but which has grown increasingly tough to spot in later, more self-oriented years. I’m sorry for modern jocks who don’t experience such depth and quality of fraternity. These are six guys who relish and treasure a bond from sharing a great achievement — Tom Rupp, Al Frame, Lloyd Koby, Dick Wilson, Art Dalzell and Wes Santee. Also here were trainer Connie Satterwite, manager Harold Hein, and a surprise guest, courtesy of Santee and Wilson — the incomparable Herbie Semper whom the former stars regard as a patron saint. Herbie finished a year before the 1953 title at East Lansing, Mich., after starring in previous meets and giving teammates so much to shoot for.

SATURDAY COLUMN
April 30, 1994
There is no infallible crystal ball for those in highly sensitive international relations to gaze upon in trying to predict actions and policies of foreign government leaders. History should serve as a strong reference source, and current economic situations, partisan political factors and various economic or mutual security pacts can offer some useful signposts, but there is no way to have a 100 percent accurate road map of what is going to happen around the world from day to day. However, there are a group of individuals scattered around the globe who perhaps have as clear and unbiased a viewpoint of current world events and likely developments as any collection of high-powered government officials or other observers. These are the men and women who serve as bureau chiefs or staffers at Associated Press offices in major cities throughout the world. These news people are seasoned and highly knowledgeable observers and usually have years of service in various countries to help balance their analysis of ongoing events, wherever they may be stationed.
