RESPECT THE FLAG
May 2, 1999
To the editor: I was a little upset about the responses to Thursday’s “On the Street” question. Should flag burning be against the law? All the responses were “no,” citing the reason of the free speech. Is this what we, as Americans, have taught our children, to defame the most powerful symbol of freedom and say it was for their right of free speech?

CALDER PICKETT
May 2, 1999
A while back I offered a column about 1949, suggesting that people headed for 50-year class reunions might find it interesting. And here’s another, but this is about 1974. Maybe ‘74 was your graduation year. Maybe you remember that Richard Nixon resigned the presidency the summer after your commencement. Resigned, of course, after two years of turmoil, after all those hearings. I’m doing a column next week on Watergate so I won’t bother you with detail here. You probably remember all this yourself, though I gathered that some people, during the recent impeachment hassle, seemed to have forgotten all about Watergate.
DEMOCRATS FALL SHORT ON IDEAS
May 2, 1999
Bill Bradley’s new best friends, whose numbers grow exponentially as his poll numbers progress arithmetically, say he will campaign on big ideas. But right now Bradley should not distract attention from Al Gore, whose difficulties multiply. And Bradley’s recent foray into the politics of ideas did not make sensible people impatient for his next foray. Gore knows that serving vice presidents who have wanted their parties’ nominations have succeeded recently (Nixon in 1960, Humphrey in 1968, Bush in 1988). However, Bush in 1988 was the first incumbent vice president since Van Buren in 1836 to win the presidency. Bush won partly because a contented electorate wanted the closest thing to a third Reagan term. Not many voters next year are going to be thinking, “Gosh, it would be really neat to prolong the Clinton years!”
GARDEN CALENDAR
May 2, 1999
Spring has sprung and with it come some tiny bugs that cause problems. The Eastern tent caterpillar has been active on flowering crabapple trees and the Sandhill plum. Not to be outdone, the European pine sawfly is present. It likes to eat Mugo pines. It will also feast on Scotch, Austrian, ponderosa, Virginia and eastern white pine. Neither bug will kill the tree on which it has started to feed. Tent caterpillars create a web-like home in your trees; they will complete their feeding in mid-May. If you plan to remove the tent, the best time is during naptime between mid-morning and mid-afternoon. If you remove the tent any other time, foraging caterpillars will be out feeding and not inside the tent. You will have only made them homeless and mad. They will continue to eat your tree.
FREE STATE SWEEPS SME
May 2, 1999
The No. 7 certainly proved lucky Saturday for Free State High’s baseball team — twice.

O-SOUTH SWEEPS LHS SOFTBALL
May 2, 1999
If those pesky showers from earlier in the week had popped up in the final innings on Saturday and shortened a softball doubleheader at Holcom, Lawrence High would have swept Olathe South. Instead, there wasn’t a cloud in sight and both games went the full seven innings. The Lions wasted leads late in both contests before falling, 7-1 and 6-2.
TURKEY HUNTERS SCOFF AT WEATHER
May 2, 1999
Of all the outdoor endeavors in these parts, turkey hunting may engender the greatest passion. Perhaps this extreme zeal stems from the fact it is a rather recent phenomenon in northeast Kansas. Most turkey hunters have been at it only since the late 1980s whereas a veteran duck or quail hunter hereabouts can date his roots back to the 1950s or even the 1940s, when a wild turkey couldn’t be spied within 200 miles of Lawrence.

No. 1 would be the 1948 Orange Bowl football game where Ray, Don Fambrough, Otto Schnellbacher and their ‘47 Jayhawk compadres fought their tails against a heavily favored Georgia Tech team. Ray passed, ran, blocked, defended, the whole schmeer.
