Teachers union awarded first contract _

By (E RI-ltl (iFlFI DS
Kernel Reporter

The Fayette Cointy Board of
Educatim approved the contract
negotiated with the Fayette County
Education Association (FCEA), a
teacher’s union, by a 3-2 vote
Monday afternoon.

Under the new contract, teachers
will receive a seven per cent in-
crease in salary, and have the right
to independent arbitration of
grievances, instead of taking them
before the school board.

It was the first contract ever
negotiated by a teacher's union in
Fayette County, although FCEA has
attempted to become the sole
bargaining agert for Fayette County
public sdiool teachers for over
seven years.

The vote fell strictly along pm
and anti-union leanings among the
board members. Judy 'l‘ipton, Alvin
Seals, and Board Chairman J.M.
Broadus voted for the contract. Don
llerren and vicechairman James
Barlow voted against tie contract.

The vote was the culmination of
over four months of negotiations
between the Board and the FCEA.
According to a recent court ruling,
the contract is binding on all
teachers in Fayette County Public
Schools, whether or not they are
members of the union. FCEA
membership does not constitute a
majority of Fayette County public
school teachers.

'l‘wo teachers organizations and
one citizers‘ group opposed the
contract andthe FCE A’s mandate to
represent the teachers. Barth
Bimmerton. vice-chairman of
Preserve Our Schools (POS), a
citizens’ organization, had strong
worth for Board Chairman Broadrs.
“l lh‘nk Dr. Broadus has sold out the

said “The drild‘en have been

Bimmerton says that his
organization has the resources
necessary for taking the issue to
court, but said he is’nt Sire POS will.
“We’re going to have a board of

Said FCEA president, Mary Ann
Pierce, “Our attorneys are aware of
the possibility that the matter will be

Under an injunction, the contract
could not go into effect until ap
proved by aoourt, which could take
months As it now staan, the cm-
tract took effect immediately after
approval by the board.

Pierce feels that tie results of
FCEA efforts show a trend toward

One of the most controversial
components in the new contract is
the new policy on teachers’

contract the vote was 530-9 in favrr
of the contract. Since Fayette

were allowed to vote for ratificatim,
only 25-33 per-cent are represented
by FCEA.

However, FCEA officers Mary

’Emancipation’ can decrease tuition

Kernel Reporter

Many out-of-state students at the
University are now trying to
establish residency in Kentucky
becarse of the 18 per cert increase in
out-d-state tuition this year.

(hit-of-state tuition was increased
last year from $1,210 to the current
yearly rate of $1,500—an increase of
$290. ln-state tuition increased only
$70, from $48) to $550.

There has not bear a significant
increase, however, in tire number of
students attempting to establish
residency. according to RS. Larson,
assistant dean of admissions and
registrar. He points out that there
has always been a substantial dif-
ference in tuition fees for residents
and non-residents.

Larson said there are usually
about 500 cases a year in which those
interested in establishirg residency
actually complete the paper wa'k.

While the increase in tuition may
discourage some out-of-state
students fran attending UK, Larson
chesn't see this causing a noticeable
decline in the numba' of out-of-state

UK‘s out-of-state tuition fee is still
muchlower than that of other state
uriversities. Those fees at Penn
State, Ohio State, the University of
North Cardina and West Virginia
University all range between $1,900
and $2,2tl).

The first step in establishing
residency is todetermine whether or
not the applicant is an “eman-
cipated persm," according to the
Kentucky Council on Higher
Education standards.

The council defines an eman-
cipatedpersonasonewin islttyears
old and whose parents “have en-
time surrendered the right to the
care, cratody and earnirgs of such a
person; whomlonger are under my

legal obligation to srpport or
maintain such person; who no
large, 'm fact, volurtarily con-
tribute substantial financial
assistance; and whose parents'
income is not taken into account by
my private or governmental agency
furnishing financial educational
asistance. "

An emancipated person may then
establish residency by living in
Kentucky for a period if 12 months
with non-strident statrs while em-
ployed on a full-time basis. Part-
time student status while employed

full-time is also accepted in
esta bli shing residency.

There are, however, exceptions to
council policy. Members of the
armed forces stationed in Kentucky
while on military orders are
classified as residents. In addition,
there are other details involving
members of the armed forces
concerning transfers and

Proof of employment on a full-
time basis is absoluwly necessary
for th ose out-of—state. Also, there are
a number of other facts that are
helpful in supporting the claim, such
as registratim for voting, a Ken
tucky automobile registration, a
Kentucky drivers lieerse and the
owning or leasirg of property.

56 politics panel works
to encourage participation

Kernel Reporter

The Political Affairs Committee of
Student Government is aptly
named» its purpose is to encourage
student interest and participation in
political affairs, according to
Chairman Jim Lobb.

The committee‘s philosophy, Lobb
said, is that there exists a “great
deal of student power tobe tapped if
interest can be aroused." Thus.
Lobb said, the committee must
carry on a “public relations cam~
paign" to convince students that
“they do have a voice, they do have
some power.”

Lobb also said that political
figures need to be convinced of
students“ political capacity and
dcmands.“We need to let people in
powcrsituations know thatstudents
are interested and would liketo have
a slice of the pie,"he said.

Lobbying is a principle means of
making studentinterests known to

politicians. This year. as in the past.
St} will sponsor a student lobby in
the Kentucky General Assembly.
Committee director Debi Young,
who initiates the policies that the
committee determines, said
members are currently researching
different lobbying issues that have
been suggested by students in order
to select those that deserve priority.

Lobb said the Equal Rights
Amendment and legislation to lower
the drinking age totti aretopies the
committee must perennially con-
sider because of the high student
interest in these subjects. En-
vironmental issues are also of
particular concern to the committee
this year.

Issues will generally be recom-
menrbd by the committee, said
Lobb; however, these issues must be
approved by the full student senate.

Young said lobbyists are now
being selected. The only major
qualification, she said. is that

prospective lobbyists must show

Lobbyist receive no salary, but
they do get a transportation
allowance and some money for
r'csearchand supplies, said Young.

Come, fellow empirics, let us
attempt to examine the source of
this anguish and see if we can’t
arrive at some notion as to just
where lies the rub.

First, let‘s examine the problem

Virtually everbody is involved, to
one degree or another, in the
complex and highly volatile world of
dating. No other activity in the world
(save perhapsthe drugtrade) is so
universally joined, and so badly

Virtually nobody is quite sure
what is the correctway to approach
the world of dating. It wouldbe fair
to compare dating to playing the
guitar. It seems so easy that almost
everybody tries to do it, but it is so
difficult that almost nobody does it

But why?

No small number of men spend
thousands of dillars on clothes that
make them “look good,” make
endless tr ipsto tmsorial parlours to
make themselves “look good," get
heavily into debt so they can drive
sltiny, fast cars that“look good"and
spat d years exercising andpumping
iron to make their bodies “look

Milliors of women spend their
whole lives seeking just the right
combination of diet, wardrobe,
makeup andharstyle thatwill make
them “look good."

Just what is the signifigance of
“lodting good?" Well, let's first
abandon the euphemisms; in any
language, “looking good”translates
directly into“being sexy." In trying
to appeal to one another, we go
straight for the proven weak spot:
the glands. Everyone knows that
“sex appeal" is the most
marketable of qualities, but some
people use that mostmarketable of
qualities unfairly.

Motives often get crossed up. For
instance, a women who knows that
she has a particularly provocative
frame and that a guy whose com‘

pany she desires (quite innocently)

is given to carnalnotions,willoften

dress in such a manner as to make
the provocative aspects of that
frame seem accessible to him. When
that guy takes notice and tries to

follow through,she will beshocked

and slap his face.

In all fairness, though, neither
side has a distinct advantage here.
Years ago, someone told them (for
God-knows-what-reason) that, as
long as they were single, “looking
was taboo. At the same time,
someone was telling men that the
more oftenthey“had sex" the more
manly they were.

What resulted from that was
generations of marathon kissing
bouts, futilely groping hands and
obligatory slaps in many a
frustrated face. Some men who
really didn‘t feel right about what
they were doirg went right on
grabbing atthose zippers because
they thought it was expected of
them, and some women who really
badly wanted to hop right into bed
with their boyfriends went right on
slapping their faces.

So we come to the root of the
problem with the whole process of
dating: most dates are made forall
the wrorg reasons. Men who just
want to make that bodily contact
find themselves going out with
women who‘d rather not, and
women who just want to find that
prime and wear his ring end up
wrestling octopi in strange, semi-
dark apartments.

Likewise, men who just want a
companion with whom to share the
simple pleasures ofyoung adulthood
wind up disappointing women who
thought they had other things in
mind, and women who just can‘t
wait to be alonewith that sexyguy in
Corn 101 gohome in tears because
they weren't sexy enough.

Who profits from all this mad-
ness? Certainly not the participants;
they find only frustration and
heartache. The only people who can
possibly profit from it all are
merchants: the guys who style hair
or sell clothes, cars, makeup,
cologne, perfume, how-topick-em-
up books, or jewelry.

Ultimately,of course, the tavern


keepers make the most money
because, as the smg says, life goes
on. The ever-hoping hunters,notyet
knowing any other way to connect,
still groom upa nd headforthebars
and lounges. The bars open early
and the liquor begins running,
bodies and tongues loosen up, the
dance floors get crowded, the
bargaining begins. Mission: im-
probable, at best.

Is there a solution? Is there any
way to avoid the “Blues For You

'Fault Li

that for


The Doobie Brothers (Warner


The Doobies’ biggest
problem has always been a
shortage of new and original
ideas. When a different
misicial form comesto mind,
they overuse and rework the
itha so much that the their
music begins to sound
remarkably tired.

The style for the group has
now settled into a neojazz,
progressive rock format.
Introduced by two ex-Steely
Dan members, vocalist
Micheal McDonald and
guitarist Jeff Baxter, the
quick and polished rhythms
sparked a much needed
freshness into the group last
year on Takin’ It To The
areets. SatflyJivin’ On The
Fault Line shows tint even
the best of ideas can go stale
rather quickly.

ne’ just

Make no mistake about it,
the Doobies are a set of very
polished musicians who,
while never displaying any
real emotional substance, can
relay several rather nice,
(pick rhythms.

Such patterrs emerge on
the two extended Patrick
Simmons compositions
“Chinatown" and the title
track. Baxter‘s gliding guitar
work, which has now
Imdified itself into a subtly
clear tone, along with guest
misician Victor Feidrmn’s
fine vibe solo on the title track
make for the grom’s best

But the weaker moments
result in reworked
arrargements of past ideas.
Mist of this fails on the
shoulders of Michael Mc-
Donald. His voice often is
better than his writing

Surprisingly enough the
star of the album turns out to

Streets hinted that the
Doobies’ were ready to break
loose and capture the musical
respect they had been driving
toward fm‘ so long. The latest
release doesn't carry out the
hint, serving only to em-
phasize that the Doobie
Brothers can‘t maintain any
type of momentum for more
than a few tracks. This
problem is what keeps them
hinting instead of running.
