The Kentucky Annual Economic
Report released findings yesterday
showing that while Kentucky's
economy tnay not have been hit as
hard by the recession as other parts
of the country. projected growth ap-
pears bleak for much of the state.
including Lexington.

Charles Haywood. director of
UK’s Center for Business and Eco-
nomic Research, delivered the state-


rnandated report to shed light on the
state‘s current economy and make
projections for Kentucky‘s future.

Haywood, the first Kentucky na-
tional professor of finance. reported
that the national recession increased
unemployment and stunted the
growth in income. spending and tax
receipts to Kentucky in 1991.

It appeared to economists that
Kentucky had fared well iii the be
ginning months of the recession.
The state showed few economic set-
backs until two to three months af-

ter the national recession began in
the fzdl of 1990.

Early in 1991. the economy was
boosted by increased consumer
spending of about $30 or $40 bil-
lion. However, toward the end of
1991, the country showed signs of
hitting a “double dip" recession.
which Haywood blatned on the
nearly $20 billion spent on imports
and the decline of government
spending at the state and local level.

“If you don't believe that cart

and see the budget cut (UK) will
probably take for next year."
During round two of the recesw
sion it became clear “that the Ken-
tucky economy was being adversely
affected by what was going on at
the national level.“ Haywood said.
“While rnosi of the indicators in
Kentucky continue to poiiit toward
a slower recovery. it has been slow-
er than we had earlier thought.
“Now we might evert say that the
last few months it appears that
we‘re not making much progress on

recovery. However. they say most
indicators are pointing mildly up—
ward particularly for the state as
compared to the nation."

The recession. spurred on by dc-

mally announced his candidacy for

cnssing the re-

of a new Board of 'l‘rustecs being
appointed. Ile said he plans to


"tackle these

If elected. November said he will
try to “continue critical student ser-
vices as well as the progress ot our


new library."

However, he conceded that some
services may have to be eliminated
because of the turnounced cuts in
the 1993-93 UK budget

“We'd all be foolish to say no
student services will be cut when
you have those kind of budget
cuts.“ he said. “I think the impor-
tant thing is to make sure that the
services that do the most good and
are necessary stay."

Another concern e\prcsscd by
both Davenport and Noyeritbci was
increasing voter turnout in the

the weaknesses began to emerge.

‘Foreigner’ is hilarious case of culture shock

Assistant Arts Editor

The UK Department of Theatre‘s
production of The Foreigner makes
no pretensions or demands on its
audience. The idea ltere is to sit
back and enjoy the show.

Foreigner unfolds in the Lodge
resort attd home of Betty Meeks.
somewhere iii the South. Meeks is a
kind. old soul whose simple and im-
mediate acceptance of all people
makes her gush whenever a new
guest cotttes through the door.

l-‘roggy l.eSueur is a Brit making

a rctunt trip to Meeks' lodge. l‘his
titne he brirtgs from jolly old ling-
lattd his shy. awkward friend Char-
lie Baker.

Charlie is terrified of people. a
fact he fails to tell liroggy until tltey
land lit the isolated. rural outpost of
the Deep South.

The two Brits devise a scheme so
Charlie won‘t have to speak to. or
attswer. anybody at the Meeks’

They make Cltarlie the “Foreign-
er" irt the fullest sense of the word:
art exotic outsider who ctut't speak
English and is ignorant of tire man-

ners of the “civilized" world. in this
case. the South.

But the plan has the opposite ef-
fect. Far from being left alone,
(‘ltarlie is treated somewhere be-
tween a Russian prince and a
friendly stray dog that has watt-
dered ittto the house. Meeks and her
faunily. Catherine and Ellard. em-
brace the Foreigner with the open-
hcarted enthusiasm of a prodigal

The odd ruse by (‘harlie has its
effect on him. too. Unable to speak
or rutswer he rediscovers the sim-
plest and most profound means of

cotmnunication. Charlie learns to
give attd accept on the low. but
common. ground of humanity. lie
is delivered from his paralyzing
fear of people.

While (‘harlie artd Betty zutd her
ilk cotne to know artd learn frotn
each other the audience is treated
to a hilarious play of gestures. patt-
tomimc. lisperaitto and culture

Director David Mc'l‘ier has
found the right people for this cast.
.lohtt 'l‘owttsettd as Charlie is art utt-
likely gagman whose straight face
makes his awkwardness even futi-

itier. llis acted out “Tractor story"
dotte lit a made-up tongue is a pure
hoot that nearly brought the house
dowrt rutd canted him spontaneous

Sattdra Dianne Hale as Betty
Meeks is uncontainable — you just
want to take her home. Jonathan
Nichols as Ku Klux Klan member
()wen Musser is a bad ass ”red-
neck." so ontery you czut't help

Special note must be made of
Chris (‘tm‘ier. who plays Ellztrd.
Wltere‘d tltey fittd this guy?

lillard takes the show over the

line of “very funny" to “uproari-
ous." He‘s so funtty you finally
laugh just to look at him. He‘s per-
fect: a carrot-top cross between
()pic and Bantey Fife.

'l‘lie Foreigner is a firte show
worth seeing. The laughs are genu-
ine arid frotn the gut. the sentiments
are simple arid direct. You can‘t

The “Noon to Moon Festival"
will be held in the infield of the Red
Mile. much like WKQQ-FM‘s annu-
al Memorial Stakes Day. However.
following festivals will be held dur~
ing the t‘all semester, Bell said.

“The weather's a little more pre-
dictable and I think the campus is a
little more active in the fall." he
said. “And Memorial Stakes Day is
in the spring and so is the Derby. so
we'll just have something in the

Bell said he hopes to raise aware-

ness for the festival so it can be-
come a successful annual event and
they will have larger budgets to at-
tract bigger hands.

“This year is pretty lowokey."
Bell said. “We‘re not spending a
ton of money. I‘m trying to this
year get it so everybody knows
about it. Around campus. you're
going to be really sick of (hearing
about) it. I‘m sure."

This year‘s festival does not de-
pend on gmd weather for its suc-
cess. relying instead on interest of
people throughout the campus and
local community.

“Memorial Stakes Day has been
successful every year, and the last
two years i know it‘s rained,“ Bell
said. “The same thing with Church-
ill Downs if you go to the Derby ——

it pretty much is not very good
weather yet there's tens of thou-
sands of people in the infield.“

In addition to ticket sales. Bell
said he hopes to gain extra money
to add the to the library's crunpaign
drive by selling T—shins. Pi Kappa
Alpha is holding a competition with
the art department for original de-
signs. The winning design will be
featured on the shirts.

'lhe deadline for the competition
is Feb. 28.

Tickets for the “Noon to Mooti

dent Center. A service charge will
be added to the ticket price. Block

In order to carry out business. the
senate must have a quorum (24 of
its 38 members must be present).
When Jones‘ amendment was
brought to the floor. several sena-

quorum to be lost. Discussion of the
amendment ceased because the sen-
ate no longer could take action on

crui‘t think t‘or themselves."

SUA Vice President Keith
Sparks surrendered his position as
chairman of the senate to debate
Vandiver‘s bill — because he and
SGA President Scott Crosbie were
the first candidates to be elected as
a ticket.

Sparks cited several examples as
to why he believed presidential
tickets should remain.

“It's going to look really bad to
go against what the students ol‘ the
past have said we need to do. When
you have a president and vice presi-
dent. they are elected on a platform.
and if they disagree on those. (plat-
fonn points) won‘t get fulfilled." he

Senator at Large Jill (‘rzuiston
disagreed with Sparks. She said
having the two offices elected sep-
arately was a good idea.

“Vice President Sparks said that
when you elect a president. you

hope he has faith in his vice presi-
dent and that you want your trust to
be in him — let‘s give the trust to
the student body and let them

choose the two offices." she said.

During that period. the state
shifted economic structure away
from the traditionally strong mining
and agricultural fields to more ser-
vice-oriented fields —— following
the national trend.

State employment increased in
consuuction, transportation and
public utilities, retail and nondura-
ble manufacturing industries. as
well as in durable manufacturing
other than automobiles. which
showed significant cutbacks.

The state weathered a decline in
govemment employment and man-

The report also showed a drastic
decline in population and personal

In llaywood‘s projection t‘or the
future. the United States will have
to become more competitive with
foreign products. especially the au-
tomotive industry.

Those industries competing in
foreign markets and competing with
imports may have to work the hard-
est coming out of the recession to
increase productivity. he said. but
will be stronger in the long run.

“My outlook is that the second
quarter of the year that is the April/
June quarter will continue to be
slow. That‘s a quarter when we
have a tightening of fiscal restraint
. April is the one month the fed-
eral government runs a surplus ~—
it's in deficit the rest of the time ——
and that cash going into the treasury
tightens up things.“ Haywood said.

Haywood said_ the federal re-

serve's decision yesterday to re-
duce requirements allowing banks
to make more loans shows the gov-
emment‘s anticipation of a slow re-
covery period.

“So I think it will be in the third
quarter the economy shows some
real definite signs of recovery. I do
believe by the third quarter of this
year. we will be looking back and
saying we are coming out of the re-
