Student Government Association shelled out a
total of $4,446 in a full senate meeting last night,
funding a variety of events.

The most expensive bill of the evening set aside
$1,545 for an on-campus conference in February
about a variety oftopics ranging from Emily Dicken-
son to the X-Files.

Rebecca Weaver, Connections Conference coor—
dinator, said this conference will enhance the educa-
tional experience of undergraduates and will aid the
professional development of graduate students in a
variety of disciplines at UK.

“This is the type of conference we are here for,’
she said.

The financial bylaw that was passed in mid-
September was put to the test for the first time in a
full senate meeting last night.




A simple request for $1,500 by the International
Students Association for their Nov. 21 hunger ban—
quet was amended after Graduate Senator Michael
Tomblyn pointed out that the fiscal )olicy, which he
authored, restricted the use of SGA nds for food.

SGA had two choices with this realization to sus-
pend the bylaws to allow funding for the

anquet or amend the bill.

However, senators thought suspending
the bylaws compromised the laws value.

“Ifwe suspend the bylaws we are setting
a dangerous precedent,” senator at large
Phil Feigel said. ,

After the votes were counted, the senate chose to
allocate $1,250 for the banquet.

The smallest bill of the evenin allocated $301 to
the printing of the much-heraldecT Designated Driv-
er Card.

The card allows a erson to receive, at the very
least, a non-alcoholic (ii-ink at some area restaurants.

The card is designed to prevent students from
driving while intoxicated.

The Designated Driver (lard will be free to UK

A bill for a graduate student publication, disC/o-
sure, also passed unanimously.

The $1,350 bill covers the )rinting and
mailing of the journal of socia theory that
has been published yearly since 1991.

disC/osure editor Susan Mains described
the publication's mission in a letter to SGA.

“I“.ach issue is a new creation embodying
the energies of numerous students and fac-
ulty members at the University of Kentucky, and
essa 'sts, artists and poet from around region and the
world," she said.

Mains said the publication gives a unique oppor-
tunity for graduate students to get their works pub-
lished and have universities from around the nation
recognize their ability.

About 30 people minded their P’s and Q’s at a
dinner meeting about etiquette for job interviews at
the Lemon Tree in Erikson Hall last night.

The speaker was Myrna Wesley from the dietet-
ics department.

Wesley said corporations are starting to pay more
for appropriate etiquette, which she referred to as
“efficiency” and “kindness.”

“Very helpful,” is how Rachel Farmer, senior at
UK, described the meeting.

“Most of us are approaching real world job inter-

Wesley explained many useful rules proper for job
interview dinners. She said the basics include sitting
up straight and speaking clearly.

She also said a handshake is important — one

Wesley said it is important to remember the
names of those at the interview.

She gave the example of associating “Mr. McIn-

Wesley talked about the “12-inch rule."

The first part of this rule concerns the appearance
of the top 12 inches of the body, such as the hair and
the face. The second part of this rule concerns the
bottom 12 inches, including the feet and their posi—

Wesley said both feet should be on the floor at all
times and within one’s space. The third part deals
with what to say during the first 12 seconds of the
interview. For instance, one should introduce oneself
with confidence and clarity.

Wesley said women with lipstick should blot it off
before drinking from a glass. She said it is important
not to wipe it off.

Other basic rules offered by Wesley include
refraining from such things as referring to others by
their first name unless told to do so, slurping soup or
making clatter with the spoon.

Other no—no’s: leaning toward the food, and plac-
ing elbows on the table.

Wesley mixed humor with some of the topics.

For instance, one question dealt with what to do

Wesley said if it were a company executive, try to
get someone else to say something. However, “ifit
was your friend Kristin, you’d lean over and say, ‘I
think there’s spinach in your teeth.”

The Lemon Tree was decorated with white table
cloths, green napkins and flowers on each table.
Printed menus were available for everyone.

The five-course meal included cider, French soup,
marinated vegetables, sorbet, roasted cornish hens,
saffron rice, sugar snap peas, acorn squash, petit pan
rolls, cheesecake with berry sauce and Irish coffee.

Monica Jackson, family studies senior, described
the meeting in two words, “Professional, elegant.”

NATION Officer Sllllt ill leg
ill violence alter verdict

ST. PI‘Z'I‘IQRSBURG, Fla. — A police officer
was shot in the leg yesterday and dozens of gun-
shots were fired in the neighborhood where riot-
ing broke out last month after a white police offic
cer fatally shot a black motorist.

The shooting yesterday evening happened
hours after a grand jury ruled the officer was justi—
fied in last month’s shooting.

“We're trying to get control ofthis as quickly as
we can," police spokesman Bill Doniel said. He
said the officer was bein treated at a local hospi—
tal, and his wounds were not life-threatening.

At least two dozen squad cars screeched out of
police headquarters at the first report of the shoot-
ing. The streets were immediately blocked off, and
moments later dozens of gunshots were heard.
There were shouts of“(Iet down, get down,” and
tear gas filled the area.

The officer was shot in front of a house where
members of a black separatist group, the National
People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement, meet.
The group has called for the executions of the
police officers involved in last month’s shootin .

The group handed out fliers Wednesday ager-
noon, after the grand jury ruling, promoting a
6:30 pm. community meeting. The shooting
occurred shortly before the meeting was to have
taken place.

\Vard, a freshman Democrat, was defeated by
Republican Ann Northup by 1,299 votes in Ken-

‘Lobes’ leaves

with memories

By Jill Erwin
Sufi” Writer

This season, UK defender
Greg Lobring has toiled practical—
ly in anonymity, at least as far as
reco 'tion from Lexington media
and ans.

Lobring is a sweeper, which is a

osition seriously lacking in pub-
licity. Defenders don't score goals,
the don’t have spectacular assists
an they don’t have many high-
light-reel lays.

“Every dy on the team knows
that everybody contributes,”
Lobring said.

“The ys that I’m around
every day flow it, and that’s more
important to me than having peo~
ple read my name in the paper.”

Consistency is one of Lobring’s
greatest attributes.

Until a late injury against
Cincinnati, he had started in 39
straight games. He’s missed the
last two.

“‘Lobes’, over the past three
years, has been our most consis-
tent player, day in and day out,”
UK coach Ian Collins said.

“His intelligence and his dedi-
cation really make him someone

Others obviously agree.

keeper Chris West achieve a

“I got a lot of the recognition
for it, but in job was made easier
by the people I had around me,"
Lobring said.

meant a lot to me, but I’d
be more than happy to

any kind of decision. I can tell you
now that he hasn’t eliminated
Kentucky or Duke.”

Most every recruiting
expert in the country lists
Burgess as the nation’s top prep

At 6—10, he can play either the
center or power forward spot and
has the ability to play facing the
basket or with his back to it.

Burgess eliminated local
favorite UCLA early in the
recruiting process.

Halagan all but ruled out the
possibility of a dark horse sneak—
ing in late to snatch Burgess.

“It’s going to be Kentucky,
Duke or BYU,” he said. “That’s
about all we know at this point.”

Strike tour

IfBurgess picks BYU or Duke,
UK will suffer a rare Strikeout of

prospects who visited Big Blue

In 1992, Midnight Madness
proved vital as a recruiting tool,
with UK signing all four prospects
who attended — Tony Delk, Wal-
ter McCarty, Jared Prickett and
Rodrick Rhodes.

James Felton, a 6-foot-9 for-
ward from Bayonne, NJ, became
the fourth Big Blue Madness invi-
tee to turn down the Wildcats
when he committed to St. John’s
earlier this week.

UK didn’t receive any letters of
intent yesterday, the first day of
the fall signing period. The Cats
have received verbal commitments
from Deerfield, Ill., guard Ryan
Hogan and Neptune Beach, Fla.,
forward Myron Anthony. Both are
expected to sign today.

fOl' starters

UK lists the following as its
probable starting lineup for
tomorrow’s opener — its earliest
ever -— against Clemson: Wayne
Turner at point guard, Derek

Anderson at shooting guard, Ron
Mercer at small forward, Jared
Prickett at power forward and
Jamaal Magloire at center.

IfMagloire, a 6-foot-10 fresh—
man, does get the start, he’d be the
fourth UK frosh to start a season
opener in the Rick Pitino era. The
other three? Jamal Mashburn in
1990—91, Rodrick Rhodes in 1992—
93 and Mercer last season.

”Dill! "IO lllSlI

Though senior Anthony Epps
isn’t listed as a probable starter —
he’s started a season opener only
once in his career —— he’ll see con-
siderable action against Clemson.

If he does, it’ll give him a
chance to improve on his standing
on UK’s all-time assist list.

Epps currently ranks seventh
on the list with 351 career assists.
He’d need an unlikely 296 assists
(or about 8 per game, counting
postseason) to break the career
record, held by Dirk Minniefield,
but Epps is just 147 shy of second-
place Roger Harden.

His classmates would never sus-
pect that Michael Younkin plays a
key role for the No. 1 team in the
country. Even some of his team—
mates didn't know who he was
after the first game.

That’s why Florida coach Steve
Spurrier had Younkin stand up
one da after practice so he could
formal y introduce the Gators’
long snapper.

“I told the other guys, ‘This is a
valuable member of our team.’
And he certainly is,” Spurrier said.

Younkin waved nervously,
pinched his lips into a grin and
thought to himself: “Cool.”

What could possibly be better
than going from a freshman trying
to survive fraternity life at Florida

along when he decided to walk on

“So I went with something that
might give me a chance.”
