SAB gives radio space
in UK Student Center

Staff Writer

Radio Free Lexington celebrated
its first anniversary in style last
night as the Student Activities Board
unanimously voted to allocate space
in the Student Center for the fledg»
ling student radio station.

“We've spent a lot of time looking
at the Student Center ~ room 228
and other areas." said Lynn Hunt.
SAB president.

Hunt cited 111 ()ld Student Center.
214 New Student Center and 228 New
Student Center as possible areas for
RFL to occupy,

”If we approve a couple of areas
we could allow RFL to get estimates
from tthe Physical Plant Divisiont.”
Hunt said.

But Frank Harris. Student Center
director. said “there are potential
technical problems that would cause
problems when RFL moves in.”

()ne of the difficulties that exists
— making 28 New Student Center a
bad place to locate -— is a pipe
organ which is being installed in the
Worsham Theater below the space.
Harris said.

“tThe organi could cause a bass
vibration throughout the budding un~
less you do an incredible job of
sound proofing." he said. “Once that
thing gets going full force, that V1-
bration will really shake 228."

In fact. Harris said the vibration





“The sooner we get the space. the sooner we
can get the equipment in and we can start

training people."

could make it difficult for RFL to lo
cate anywhere in the New Student

“Once that vibration gets into the
superstructure of the building, it
really travels." he said.

Harris suggested that RH. be
placed in 111 Old Student Center.
The radio station is “more related to
what's going on in that part of the
building." he said. “And it‘s going to
be less of a problem for my stall
when you all want to expand "

Hunt's suggestion of approving “a
couple of areas" was taken a step
further by Harris

“1f the board really wants ltFl. in
the center then vote on that and ap
point a committee to decide where
once all the estimates have been
done." he said.

The board took this suggestion and
modified it. passing a motion to
allow RFL in the center and to ap-
point a subcommittee to decide on
the most reasonable space

Once the subcommittee has decid-

tivities was not to pit Kentucky's
FFA chapters in bitter competition,
'I‘rusdell said.

“If it were too competitive it
would take away from the goal of
the program." he said.

“The competition is to provide
hands-on experience in the students
area of interest."

Each FFA member participates in
the schools, supervised occupational
experience program, which permits
a student to specialize in a specific
area of agriculture similar to a col-
lege major.

The field day was also planned to
draw concern to the problem Ameri-
can farmers face each day.

“There are a lot of problems with
the agriculture industry," said Brad
Chambliss, state president of the
Kentucky association of FFA.

“Farmers in the United States are
the most productive growers in the
world but are not receiving there re-
wards they deserve." Chamliliss

Although the farming industry has
been suffering through these prob-
lems. attendence at this year‘s FFA
field day was the highest in recent
years, 'I‘ruesdell said.

The surge in attendence was
spurred because “a lot of people in
the agriculture business are seeing
that there is a light at the end of the
tunnel," he said.

“There is an air of optimism
among the members (of FFA) be-
cause there are more opportuni-
ties," Chambliss said.

The UK College of Agriculture
supplied all the materials needed for
the daylong affair. Other events in-
cluded dairy cow judging, a tractor
pull and a quiz contest. which chal—

Director Borden deromanticizes role
of urban ‘working girl’ in latest film

Contributing Writer

0n the surface, prostitution may
be the lowest form of selling oneself.
In America’s capitalistic culture,
it's a business that continues to ex-
pand and take on new faces.

A new category of prostitution has
recently emerged, a group that may
be the last hope for the cause of de~
criminalizing the profession: a con-
temporary, educated, upwardly mo-
bile “working girl" — a wishfully
euphemistic term for the harsher
term of hooker.

“Working Girls,” the new Mira-
max release now playing exclusively
at the Lexington Mall Cinema, oper-
ates on this premise. Gone are the
common sii‘eetmilkei s, the sleazy
pimps and the psychopathic killers.

Missing also is the sexist male
point of view that accounts for the
genre of explorative movies about
prostitution. This is solely due to the
staunch feminism of the film's co-
writer and director, Lizzie Borden.

“A lot of people expect something
bad to happen at the end of ‘Work-
ing Girls,’ " she said in an interview
in The Boston Globe. In previous
movies about prostitution, “the el-
ement of degradation or victimiza-
tion tends to dominate.”

The relatively inexpensive cost of
making “Working Girls“ has not af—




fected the amazing level of quality
throughout the film.

Produced for a modest $300,000
and filmed in sets constructed in
Borden‘s SoHo loft, this fictional tale
begins to take on the character of a
documentary. rather than spin into
something out of a supermarket tab-

Thanks to authentic acting by a
group of newcomers to film, the
plight of these upper-middle class
prostitutes becomes believable
where it easily could have failed.

They’ve turned an upscale town-
house into a plush, cozy brothel and
liar-c iiiaiidged to attract a regular
and dependable clientele, ranging
from engineers to Japanese busi-

“Working Girls" has less to do
with sex and eroticism than with the
feelings of the central figure of the
story, Molly, a sensitive, ambitious
Yale graduate.

Convincingly portrayed by Louise
Smith, Molly bicycles to work and
insists upon being amiable to every-
one she encounters throughout her
working day.

The viewer is encouraged to be-
lieve in the sincerity of this Mary
Tyler Moore of the prostitution
world. But Molly logically needs a

brought here with me some of the
interest in that kind of program. I'm
not going to back off from saying
‘Yes, I had that special interost.‘
I‘ve got some feeling for that."

ingletary came to UK during a
period of unrest — student

protests. campus curfews, the
burning of the Air Force ROTC
building and the National Guard
patrolling the campus in May 1970.

He had to make tough decisions
before the newness of the position
were off. In fact, his first year at
UK was nearly his last. It was the
lowest point in his UK presidency,
Gloria Singletary said.

"It was a hard time for him to
come," she said. “Coming from the
University of Texas, where he was
extremely popular with students, it
was hard to take students seeing
him as an adversary.”

“That was clearly a low time,“
Singletary said, “not just for me and
not just for UK, but it was a low
time for all of American higher
education. It was the most turbulent
time, I think, in the liistmy of
American higher education.

“It‘s the only time I really
seriously thought about changing
careers, just getting out.“

The fundamental belief that
institutions of higher learning are
really important kept him going.
“Abandoning the field does not seem
to be the best way to deal with it. I
had a kind of hunch through all of
that that it would heal itself, that
that was more or less a temporary

“I never understood how people
thought they could really improve
these institutions by burning them
down. I didn't think that would
last . "

So the Singletarys set out to
change their adversarial images.
Every Wednesday, Gloria Singletary
would hold a tea for student groups
at Maxwell Place and invite
administrators. This custom lasted
for the next two or three years.

"I think that helped a lot,” she
said. “After that, (the students)
began to know that we weren’t their
adversaries. We were here for
them. "

One of the first things the
Singletarys did was unlock
