Delays in financial aid force students
to seek more time to plunk down tuition


By Lance Williams
News Editor


Students who automatically as-
sume they will get an extension to
pay their tuition because of the late
arrival of some of this year’s finan-
cial aid should take another look.

Students must sign an “Agree-
ment of Payment Extension" form
so that their extension (an be en-
tered into the computer and allow
them to retain their status.

“They have got to show up and
mk for it and sign a promissory

note, so to speak." said Judy Mar-
shall, assistant to the vice-
chancellor for administration.

Bobby Halsey, UK’s director of
financial aid, also stressed that stu-
dents must sign the necessary

“Students have to initiate with us
their desire to have the fees
waived," Halsey said.

The financial aid office. located
in the W.D. Funkhouser Building,
will stay open until 6 pm. for the
first two weeks of classes.

But the office “will stay open

past the two weeks if the traffic
coming into the office dictates it,"
Halsey said, adding that traffic is
“heavy" right now.

If students do not sign the form
before Sept. 8, the last day to pay
tuition and fees for the fall semes-
ter, their registration will be

“If your registration is dropped,
you have to go through the system.
Your chances aren’t very good that
you would get your same sched-

UK English professor Gurney
Norman is personally offended
by the Pulitzer-prize winning
play “Kentucky Cycle" because.
he says, it promotes hillbilly
stereotypes of eastern Kentucky.

Norman, a native of the region
and a nationally respected au-
thor, has spent the past three
months speaking out on the play
and its author, Robert Schenk-
kan, whom he criticizes for “bad
writing" and “shallow thinking."

On Sept. 26, Norman will lead
a discussion of the play at Io-
seph-Beth Booksellers, located
in the Mall at Lexington Green
on Nicholasville Road.

"The Kentucky Cycle,“ a sev-
en hour production, tells 200
years of Appalachian history
through the story of five genera-
tions of three families. After re-
ceiving rave reviews in Los An-
geles, it became the first play
ever to win a Pulitzer prior to
showing in New York City.

But Norman, an associate pro
fessor, said “Kentucky Cycle"
offers only a superficial look at
the language and culture of east-
ern Kentucky.

Norman. who grew up in Haz-
ard. Ky., also questions Schenk-
kan‘s reliance on the works of
the late Kentucky writer and
poet Harry Caudill and other na-
tive Kentuckians. which, Nor-
man said, provided most of
Schenkkan's background re-

cred his background by talking di-

Norman said.

“Mr. Schenkkan has damaged his
play by not going to that direct
source," Norman said. “I think that,
further. it would have been better
for Mr. Schenkkan's credibility if
he would have given us footnotes."

After viewing the play Sunday
evening in Washington, DC, Nor-




man was “dismayed by the fre-
quent interruption of a tragic sto-
ry with shallow jokes based on
the hillbilly stereotype and polit-
ically correct thinking."

Norman then told of a scene

N .C. residents ordered to evacuate

Hurricane Emily
continues path
toward East Coast


By Estes Thompson

NAGS HEAD, N.C. —— More
than 150,000 people on North Caro-
lina‘s barrier islands and coast were
ordered to evacuate yesterday as
Hurricane Emily meandered on a
path toward the central East Coast.
A hurricane warning was issued for
much of the North Carolina coast.

Surf was 3 to 4 feet yesterday. al-
though stn'fers enjoyed waves up to
9 feet Sunday, and forecasters
warned waves would begin to build
all along the East Coast. Gale-force
wind also could reach North Clou-
na today.

“Nobody's going to be arrested
for not leaving. but they're probably
going to be asked for their next of
kin," said Due County spoken-i

Ray Stuna. “Use common sense —-
and then go."

Few people were left yesterday
on Ocracoke Island, accessible only
by ferries that ran through the night.
The sky was blue with light clouds
and water along the coast was rela-
tively calm, but people knew that
might not last

“You get the feeling nothing's
going to happen," said lean Hatch-
er, who was waiting for a ferry to

A hurn'cmie warning was posted
from Bogue Inlet, 20 miles south-
west of Morehead City near Camp
Lejeune, to the Virginia state line.
A hurricane watch was in effect
from Little River, S.C., near the
North Carolina state line, north to
Fenwick Island. Del.. near the Ma-
ryland-Delaware border, the hurri-
clte center said. A watch for much

people on Currituck County's
stretch of the islands just north of

“If a student is receiving funds

Halsey said that if students still

will “renegotiate“ the contracts

“The financial aid office has uied
to be more accommodating this
year because we realized the Uni-
versity wasn't able to deliver," Hal-
sey said.

The problems began earlier this
year when the financial aid office
switched the type of software it
uses in order to accommodate fed-
eral programs.

“UK is somewhat unique from
most other universities in the nation
because the financial aid goes
across all three sectors," Halsey

He said that because of this fea-
ture. UK needs special software to
accommodate the aid system.

Along with the change in the
computer system, the federal gov-
ernment also must complete an an-
nual reauthorization process of each

The process helps the government
decide which academic institutions
to retain and which ones to
from the eligibility list for federal fi-
nancial aid.

Halsey said the time for the feder-
al reauthorization process to be
completed was additional problem
that led to the delay.

“It really made a double-

whammy," Halsey said.

“We knew it was going to be a
tremendous undenaking. It was the
kind of thing that we hoped would
never happen to us."

Former student’s trial

Task force outlines
state health reform

Price-setting emerges as major issue


By Mark R. Chellgren
Associated Press


FRANKFORT, Ky. — A mixed
plan to manage Kentucky's health
care system through competition
with the threat of price-setting is
emerging from one of the commit-
tees studying the topic.

The program would create two
giant purchasing cooperatives to
buy health insurance coverage for
anyone who wants to participate.
but it would be specifically aimed
at public employees and employers
with fewer than 100 workers.

A health policy bomd would
oversee the cooperatives and would
have the power to set an annual
budget for medical expenses. It also
could set the fees that doctors and
hospitals could charge.

The draft discussed yesterday at
the Cost Containment Committee of
the Health Care Reform Task Force
would not force anyone to buy insu—
rance and the state would not in-
crease taxes to pay for coverage for
people who don‘t now have it.

Elliot Wicks, a consultant for the
Institute for Health Policy Solutions
and the committee, said his propo~
sal isaboutasfarasastatecango
by itself without a tax increase or
mandatory coverage.

Sen. Nick Kafoglis. D-Bowling
Green, said Wicks was told to keep
the plan limited for political purpos-
es. “We are approaching this as a

The committee is scheduled to
meet again Thursday and perhaps
take a vote on some proposal. The
full task force, which was created
after the failed special session on
health care earlier this summer.
may meet in September to pull to-
gether a full proposal.

The work of the cost containment

and overlaps other committees of

But the plan offered by Wicks
touches on most of the critical top-
ics in the health (are debate.

The purchasing cooperatives
would each cover half the state and
operate through insurance compa-
nies. so it would not be a single-
payer system endorsed by some.
Wicks said the cooperatives would
create basic health plans and every-
one could then choose from among
the plans.

Wicks said that is the critical de-
cision in the process. "The consu-

Theatre department names acting chairman


By Rebeca Farmer
' Contributing Writer


Russ Jones was named acting
chairman of the theatre department
on Aug. 23.

- Jones replaces Geraldine Mas-
‘chio. who was the department‘s
‘ehairwoman for the past three years
bf her four-year term. Muchio is
on sabbatical this year and asked


Jones to fill the position.

The theatre department faculty
will recommend a new chairman to
College of Fine Arts Dean Rhoda-
Gale Pollack in the spring.

Until that time. Jones will act as
the chief administrator for the de-
partment. As department chairman.
he said he sees himself as “an orga-
nizer of the faculty's goals." His
personal priority is to increase the

student enrollment of the depart-
ment. he said.

Though new to an administrative
position. Jones is optimistic about
his duties.

“I have a strong gut feeling,"
Jones said. “that this department
has the ability to produce good
works and good students.

Jones' name is a familiar one on
UK theatre programs because of his

position as scenic and lighting de-
signer for the Deparunent of Thea-
tre. He also has taught in the depart-
ment for four years.

His new position and teaching
load. however, will leave him little
time to continue designing the scen-
ery that frames UK actors.

Jones plans to spend his time im-
plementing several new programs
for the theatre department.

He will hold meetings for theatre
faculty and students every Wednes-
day at noon in the President’s
Room in the Otis A. Singletary
Center for the Arts. The meetings
also will be open to all UK students
who wish to explore the world of
university theatre. he said.

“ ‘Real World’
, star really a

country singer

By Bob Lewis

OWENSBORO — Jon Brennan
took his little-boy gn'n, his cowboy
hat and boots and his sassy country
tunes to Nashville. Tenn, last win-
ter seeking an audience for his mu-
sic, a first step toward a recording

Then came a detour, though one
he took willingly to kick-stan his
career. He found himself in Los
Angeles a few weeks later defend-
ing God, country and the Grand
Ole Opry from the affronts of big-
city folk each week on a national
television show.

Heavy stuff. indeed. for a plain-
spoken 19-year-old of unabashed
Christian and conservative beliefs
who played himself from February
through June in MTV's reality-
based soap opera, “Real World."

“It happened so fast. One minute
I was basically a nothing and the
next I was all over the country."
Brennan said after the show‘s 22-
week run ended and he prepared to
resume his quest for country music

“I did get to sing two or three dif-
ferent times on ‘Real World,‘ but it
was really a sidetrack," he said. ex-
plaining that it did little to advance
his name among the powers of
country music in Nashville.

Brennan got his break when he
stepped onstage with his mentor.
Goldie Payne, who was warming
up a Nashville audience for a coun-
try music variety show that ABC
was televising.

“He stepped out there like he
owned the place,“ said Payne. a for-
mer disc jockey who helped start
the careers of country stars Many
Brown and Billy Dean.

Among those who saw him per-
form was a scout with connections
at MTV. Consequently. Brennan
became the youngest of seven at-
tractive young adults from diverse
backgrounds who lived together for
five months in a Califomia beach
house while cameras recorded their

TUSCALOOSA. Ala. — No. 2
Alabama plans to use two. maybe
three quarterbacks in the season
opener against Tulane on Saturday.
But don‘t get the impression there‘s
a controversy brewing at that posi-
tion for the defending national

Coach Gene Stallings left little
doubt Monday that the starter is Jay
Barker. who as a starter has directed
the Crimson Tide to a 17-0 record
over the last two seasons.

“I'm not concerned about a quar-
terback controversy at all.“ Stallings

said. “I'm trying to find the best one
1 can for Alabama. and right now
that's Jay Barker.

“But I wouldn't hesitate for a sec-
ond to play a freshman or some-
body else if I felt like he would be
the best one at the time."

Stallings plans to give sophomore
Brian Burgdorf extensive playing
time this season. and he also hopes
to work freshman Freddie Kitchens
into the game against Tulane, a
learn that was 2—9 last season in-
cluding a 37-0 loss to Alabama.

“Burgdorf had a good summer. I
definitely want to see him play."
Stallings said. “And Freddie Kitch-
ens is definitely good enough to


play right now."

Burgdorf had a strong spring and
there was some speculation that he
might beat out Barker. But the soph-
omore has struggled in the fall
while Barker. a 6-foot-3. 210—pound
junior. has looked stronger than

A battle for the starting call suits
Stallings. “i love the competition."
he said.

So does Barker. who feels like it
has made him a better quarterback.

“last year 1 got a little compla-
cent because 1 knew I was going to
be the quarterback." he said. “But
when Brian stepped up. I stepped
up. I feel like when the challenge

came along. l met that challenge. I
knew I had to get things done to
keep my position and I think that
was good for me because it was
something I needed."

Stallings was coy when asked
how he planned to use Barker and

“It's a ‘feel' thing," he said. “1
just really don't know. I make all
kinds of plans. but it never works
out that way. We don't have a
plan now other than planning to
play both of them."

Despite Barker's unbeaten record,
he is the type of quarterback who
never can feel secure in the starting
position. Not blessed with a strong

“He stands for all the good
things," Stallings said. “When prac-
tice is over. he never loses a sprint.
It doesn‘t make any difference. He
always wants to come in first He‘s
constantly working on improving
his throwing game. He's studying
the defenses."

Last season. Barker threw for
only 1,614 yards —— an average of
135 per game. He had seven touch-
downs but also was intercepted nine
times. Not exactly the kind of num-
bers that will attract the attention of
Heisman Trophy voters.

But somehow, he keeps on win-



ning. “I‘ve won 17 games." Barker
said. “You can't look past that.

“I feel I've gotten better every
year. This is my third fuu season at
quarterback and I’m still getting
better. I feel I've gotten better in so
many areas. I'm very excited and
positive about this season."

Stallings is sounding positive.
too. He said he hasn't noticed any
complacency seeping in after last
season's national championship.

“The same intensity is there at
practice, and I expect us to perform
at a high level," he said. “I think it‘s
always better to come off a good
year than a bad year."

DiNardo readies Vandy for opener


By Teresa M. Walker

NASHVILLE. Tenn. — Vander-
bilt opens its season against Wake
Forest Saturday, and coach Gerry
DiNardo wouldn't admit much
more than that yesterday in pre-
viewing the upcoming road trip.

“1 haven’t thought much about
it." he said at the first of his weekly
news conferences. “I feel that way
every week. so it‘s hard for me to
look back and think one‘s more im-
portant than the next one."

Who will be his starting quarter-
back? Junior Kenny Simon or one
of the redshirt freshman. Ronnie
Gordon or Cedric Douglas?

“You‘ll know when the offense
hits the field (Saturday). No sense
telling Wake Forest who our stan-
ing quanerback is," the coach said.

How does he plan to deal with the
Demon Deacons' new coach Jim
Caldwell. someone he worked with
under Bill McCartney at Colorado?

“I think it's going to be a game
where we‘re going to have to do a
lot of coaching and adjusting during
the game. Obviously, they've got a

new staff at Wake Forest. We don‘t
know exactly what they‘re going to
do offensively and defensively, so I
think players and coaches are go-
ing to have to do a lot of adjusting."
he said. >

Wake Forest managed to salvage
its season by dumping Vanderbilt
40-6 on Oct. 10 last season. The De—
mon Deacons had entered the game
1-3 and ended the season 8—4 with a
bowl bid. Vanderbilt continued slid-
ing to a 4-7 finish.

DiNardo would prefer to play
only one of the three quarterbacks
Saturday but says he’ll play whoev-
er moves the ball.

“I think it wouldn't be from a po-
sition of strength." DiNardo said. “I
feel more confident in the guy I'm
going to start. but if I‘ve got to play
more than one of them, I'll play
more than one of them."

He‘s entering his third season as
Vandy's coach with a record of 9-
13 and looking for the school‘s first
winning season since 1982.

“I don't know that you're ever
where you'd like to be. I think
we’ve had a good camp. We need a
good week of preparation to be

”our: course CHAN at:


ready for the Wake Forest game. 1
think we‘re a better team than we
were a year ago. Comparing our-
selves to ourselves. the unknown
factors are your opponents. so that‘s
why it's always hard to predict what
you‘re going to be like." he said.

He admits Wake Forest probably
will have a better handle on his
style of play since he's run the 1-
Bone rushing offense the past two
seasons. But the Commodores are
looking to reverse a losing trend to
the Demon Deacons.

DiNardo doesn‘t waste time
drinking about playing for revenge.
He just wants to win.

“1 think revenge is a motivational
characteristic. and everyone handles
it the way they want. I won‘t talk
about it. I think anybody who
played in that game last year has
