PHOTO PACKAGE CUTLINE
April 4, 1999
Easter is being celebrated today by Christians against a backdrop of an incongruent world. While Americans are enjoying a bullish stock market and ever-expanding economy, thousands of ethnic Albanians are fleeing for their lives in the wake of Serbian aggression in Kosovo, and Iraqis live under United Nations sanctions and daily U.S. bombings. The scenes illustrate the growing disparity and struggle between the haves and have nots.

S A LOOK AT SIGNIFICANT STELLAR EVENTS THIS MONTH.
April 4, 1999
Today: Western Christianity has a tolerably simple formula for determining the date of Easter. In this recipe, we wait for the first full moon after the vernal equinox — the following Sunday should be Easter. Since the equinox was March 21 and a full moon followed it on Wednesday, this first Sunday of April is Easter. The traditional link of the religious calendar to the astronomical calendar has been terribly strong and was a motivating force behind the calendar reforms of 1582. Tuesday: This is an anniversary of one of the first solar eclipses with a firmly established historical record, in the year 648 B.C. It’s worth asking how meaningful that sort of anniversary is, since no calendar system remained in use for more than several centuries until modern times. Because solar eclipses are rare and the dates are calculable, these records actually make possible our translation of ancient calendar records to a system of dates that conforms to our usage.

KEHDE COLUMN FOR APRIL 4
April 4, 1999
For the past decade, Lake Fork in Texas has been a late winter spa for northeast Kansas bass anglers. In the early 1990s, some folks called Fork the best big bass lake in the nation. An eight-pounder was common. For a spell even a 10-pounder didn’t garner a lot of attention. And the lake was full of medium-size bass to boot.

April 4, 1999
Get a rope. You’ll need it to round up all the riotous rhesus rampaging through “One Monkey Too Many.” Author Jackie French Koller draws from her own experiences of growing up with a sister’s pet monkey. The result is a fun rhyming tale about monkeys that don’t know when to stop adding just one more. These ornery little imps know about as many tricks as Will Roger’s “Ropin’ Fool.” But unlike the fool, their tricks don’t win them fame and fortune — just trouble.

CALDER PICKETT

This is about Mel Adams. Maybe you knew Mel. If you were in advertising at KU from 1960 to 1989 you knew him. Maybe you saw him with his coffee pals at Dunkin Donuts, or maybe you were one of the pals. Mel Adams died March 27. The minute Verna called to tell me I wished that I had written about him while he was around to read what I had said. He and I were friends in all his teaching years here. We took some trips together, and there was a time, 35 or so years ago, when he and two other fellows and I headed for the Hawk’s Nest every afternoon for coffee.
