Talk of peace
war inevitable

Associated Press

Iraq’s rubber-stamp legislature
yesterday unanimously backed Sad-
dam Hussein’s no-concession stand
on Kuwait with the blood of the na-
tion, and UN Secretary-General Ja-
vier Perez de Cuellar said he had
lost hope for peace.

“Unfortunately, I don’t see any
more reasons to be optimistic. I
don’t see any reason to have real
hope,“ the secretary-general said
grimly after meeting with President
Francois Mittenand in Paris yester-
His 2 1/2 hour meeting with Sad-
dam in Baghdad on Sunday had
been considered the last best chance
to avoid an attack on Iraqi forces by
the U.S.-led multinational force.

President Bush on Sunday called
Iraq’s apparent intention to have
troops in Kuwait beyond tonight’s
midnight EST withdrawal deadline
“a tremendous mistake.“ ln Bagh-
dad, Saddam said any “last-minute
initiatives” for peace were up to the
United States.

Across the world, prayers and
anti—war protests grew more pas-
sionate. In the states that line the
Persian Gulf, residents stocked up
on provisions and sealed windows
and doors to protect against poison
gas attacks.

Some people sought gas masks,
others hunted for a flight out.

Fearing the attack Iraq has prom—
ised if it is struck, Israel called up
reserves and the United Nations or-
dered the dependents of its staff
members to leave that country.

“The hope that I had is already
gone," Perez de Cuellar said after
his 45—minute meeting with Mitter-
rand. “I‘m a diplomat but as you
can see I’m going to be honest and

He was also scheduled to meet
with Foreign Minister Jacques Poos
of Luxembourg, which holds the ro-
tating presidency of the European



Community, and return to New
York yesterday to report to the Sc-
curity Council.

Britain’s Douglas Hurd cut short
a visit to Turkey yesterday and
joined other European Community
foreign ministers in rushing to Brus-
sels, Belgium, for an emergency
session to discuss the war.

The envoys were also to discuss
the bloody Soviet crackdown in the
secessionist republic of Lithuania.
The United States and other West-
ern nations have condemned the re—
pression, which threatened to dam-
age Soviet—Westem relations when
Kremlin support is key to the Per-
sian Gulf effort.

Perez de Cuellar said he thought
it was now too late for any diplo-
matic initiatives.

For months, Saddam has suggest-
ed that a peaceful settlement in the
gulf could be linked to a Middle
East peace conference that address—
es the Palestinians‘ demands for an
independent state on Israeli-

UK drive toward college still in gear

Editor in Chief

MOREHEAD, Ky. — UK‘s drive
toward establishing a community
college in the London-Corbin area,
which stalled last week when Sue
Bennett College trustees rejected af-
filiation with UK, appears to be
back on track.

Members of the state's Council
on Higher Education gave no indi-
cation yesterday that they would
block a move in the area by UK to
create its 15th community college,
despite the fact that it could drain
enrollment for already-existing
schools in the area.

“It’s right where it ought to be,"
said UK President Charles Wething-
ton. “We’re at a stage now that the

A study is underway to determine
the feasibility of a community col-

ecutive director for the CHE.

UK officials believe that study
will show enough resources, stu-
dents and land exist to warrant an—
other institution of higher education
for the seven-county area, even with
the presence of Cumberland Col-
lege and Sue Bennett.

Black comedy ‘House’
changes notion of home

Staff reports

“Home” usually evokes images
of warmth and safety for many of
us —— a place where we can escape
from the troubles of everyday life.

But in Norman Lock‘s The House
of Correction, that popular notion
of home is destroyed as two charac-
ters are forced to confront unpleas-
ant issues by a “friend of the fami-

The UK Department of Theatre
presents the dark comedy as 3 Sec-
ond-Season Production at 8 tonight
in the Briggs Theatre. The play runs
thrcugh Saturday.

Todd Lacy, the play’s director,
said one reason he chose the play
was because “I like the idea of the
home being invaded.”

Lacy said that he was first ex-
posed to the 1987 play in a class he
took last semester from theatre in-
structor Patrick Kagan—Moore.

The first time Lacy read the play,

“I found myself laughing at the
same time I was getting chills."

Lacy said he wanted to produce a
play this semester that was current
and challenged audiences. He said
he thinks The House of Correction
does just that by combining sus-
pense with a comic element and
uses a common place as its setting.

“It's a very interesting combina-
tion," said Lacy, who also is a thea-
tre graduate student and co-
technical director of UK Theatre.

The play has four scenes, and
Lacy said that producing it in the
Briggs Theatre preserves the play's

Simon expands creativity
on ‘Rhyt'am of the Saints




Senior Staff Critic

“The music suffers/The music
business thrives."

That oxymoronic truth helps ex-
plain why Paul Simon devoted
years to his most recent release, The
Rhythm of the Saints.

In an industry that considers fluff
entertainer Whitney Houston an
“artist of renowned stature,” as one
music show recently called her, the
depth of a musician like Simon is a
reason to go to the record store.

Rhythm of the Saints is a power-
ful album, both in its music and in
its lyrics.

Simon's Graceland used South
African musicians to blend skillful
drumwork and emotions that only
Simon can pen.

For Rhythm, Simon went to Bra-
zil and came back with hypnotic
percussion and backing vocals.

The opening track, “The Obvious
Child," starts off with drums rolling
like a breaking storm surge. It is an
example of Simon’s fascination
with nonsense —— the lyrics sound
good, but we're not quite sure what
he means.

The songs on this album are di-
verse and obviously represent sever-
al periods in both Simon's profes-
sional and personal lives, yet the
album as a whole has a sound dis-
tinct from previous works.

“Can’t Run But" is an attack on
complacency — “I can’t run but I
can walk much faster than this.“
“The Coast” and “Proof" sound
strongly like tracks that came to-
gether too late to make it on “Grace-

On these tracks Simon uses some
of the same brass and African in-
struments, and their lyrics, like
those on Graceland, depend more
on sound than words.

But despite Simon's recent musi-
cal globe-trotting, it always has
been his lyrics that have given his
music its characteristic depth since
the beginnings of Simon and Gar-

While many of his songs address
love and relationships, no one could
really call Simon a romantic. Just as
on Simon and Garfunkel albums,
Rhythm doesn’t let us forget the
pain associated with love.

The melodic sorrow of “Further
to Fly" and “She Moves On" is like
cold water after the lightness of
“The Coast“ and “Proof.“ These
songs are probably a result of the
breakup of his relationship with his
ex-wife, Can’ie Fisher. If nothing
else, Simon’s personal problems
have given despair its own sound.

“Further to Fly" traces the rela-
tionship from its beginnings. After
presenting loneliness, “There may
come a time/When you‘ll be tired/
As tired as a dream that wants to
die," he presents hope, “Maybe you
will find a lovefl‘ hat you discover
accidentally," but he moves to the
realimtion that, “There may come a
time/W hen I will lose you/Lose you
as I lose my sight/Days falling
backward into velvet night.“

These lines become more painful
at the end of the song when Simon
is, once again, alone.

“She Moves On" has no happier
an ending. Anyone familiar with Si—
mon and Garfunkel lyrics will rec-
ognize the theme of never having
the words to express intense emo-
tions: “‘Maybe these emotions are/
As near to love as love will ever

All Simon can say is, “So I

Unfortunately, Simon’s penchant
for recording track on track makes
this album sound too slick in places.
The notes after each track show that
each was recorded in New York and
Brazil, and some in Paris also.

The “live" feeling of the one-
studio recording is lost with the
multiple tracks and extensive digi-
talizing of this album.

Tme, it would have been difficult
to have coordinated the vocals, ex-
tensive percussion and occasional
brass of this album, but Simon
could regain an “in-concert" sound
by using QSound on his next effort.

His layered sounds would benefit
greatly from the new QSound tech-
nology, which electronically creates
ambience for the music and “plac-
es" the sound in different areas of
that ambience to create the auditory
illusion that all the instruments are
playing simultaneously.

(QSound can only be heard now
on Madonna's Immaculate Collec-

In this time of musical unoriginal-
ity, with even the biggest hit of the
summer —— M.C. Hammcr’s “You
Can’t Touch This“ — stealing the
music of a previous hit —— ”Super-
Freak," Rhythm is unusual in that it
has both musical and lyrical quality.

With its Brazilian drums and of-
ten-painful lyrics, The Rhythm of
the Saints is not destined for the top
of the charts in this time of careful
prepackaging and bubble gum pop
aimed at the adolescent market.

But then, the gap between quality
music and what's on the charts has
been wide for years.
