BOT votes to hold closed meeting to discuss investigation

Editorial Editor

In an uncharacteristic nltl\(‘. the t‘K
Board of Trustees passed a resolution yes-
terday that requires l'K President David
Roselle to update them and the Athletics
Board on l'K's response to the Nt‘AAs
allegations against the men‘s basketball
team before it is sent to the Nt‘AA

BOT members will be updated by Rose
lie at an executive session that will be held
either Sunday or Monday [K has until
Monday to respond to the lit \‘t'AA
allegations against the basketball pro

Roselle had wanted to call the HOT and
Athletics Board into executive session
after l'K's response to the allegations had
been sent to the NCAA Any objections
RHT members would have voiced to the
response would have been included in an
addendum, Roselle said

But Rit'l‘ member 'l‘racy Farmer
objected saying the Bit'l‘ has the right to
know what l'K's response is before any
outside organi‘lation is intormeil

“l think as :ncui'nbeiit on all it board
members to be kept appraised as where
we are." he said "I don" mean to itiilii
mice the report one wax or another unless

it was totally unreasonable

But he added that resident advisers

intervention skills and are taught how
to make appropriate referrals for rape

Fraternity participation in the

Western Kentucky University se—
nior Debbie ()‘Connell hit a pair of
free throws with 10 seconds left on
the clock to ice a 79-75 Hilltopper
victory over the Lady Kats last
night in Memorial Colesium.

ller free throws climaxed a night
in which Western only missed one
from the charity stripe.

"You have to give Western credit
for making their free throws down
the stretch.“ L'K coach Sharon
Fanning said.

At the end of a close first half
that featured 12 lead changes, the
llilltoppers went into the locker
room with a three-point lead.

Senior guard Susie Starks and ju-
nior forward Tandreia Green
accounted for 30 of Western‘s 42
first half points.

"They are two of the best ath—
letes l have ever seen.” Fanning

The Lady Kats were able to tie
the score three times in the open-
ing minutes of the second period,
before the Hilltoppers went on a 74)

More must be done
at University about
acquaintance rape

It ‘s a strange thing about acquaintance rape.
it's a violation of someone‘s body. It's a violation of
someone‘s rights It ‘s a violation of trust.

It's a crime.

Yet for some reason, many people don‘t take the topic
seriously. It‘s no big deal. many say. It's not really rape.
Besides. it could never happen to me.

Many people may even be scoffing at the series on date
rape the Kernel has been running this week. What good
does it do to write about this topic in the student newspa-


per .

The reason is that we want to raise student awareness
about the issue so peOple realize it‘s a problem that needs
to be dealt with. We want people to think about the atti-
tudes in their relationships that might promote acquain-

tance rape.

And we want to prompt UK officials and organizations
to do more to educate students about this problem, because
right now they aren‘t doing enough.

t‘urrently. there are several University-sponsored edu-
cation programs on campus. and efforts are being made to
increase student awareness of acquaintance rape. Freshv
man orientation addresses acquaintance rape. and campus
officials sometimes present education programs to resi—

dence halls and greek houses.

We commend these efforts.

However. the treatment of acquaintance rape at fresh—
man orientation is limited since students are bombarded
with so much other information in a short period of time.

And the education programs are given only upon re-
quest. attendence usually is low. and they don't reach com-

muter students.

tin the topic of education and awareness of acquain
tance rape. ['K could. and should. do more.

Many universities require that freshmen attend a man-
datory seminar on acquaintance rape. UK should create a
task force made up of students. faculty and administrators
to study this idea. as well as other avenues of education.

By having representation from these different groups.
l'K could gain a better and more thorough understanding
of the situation at UK and what needs to be done. It also
could serve as a way to centralize the administration of the

University‘s programs.

And UK should. at the very least. present the education
programs in a systematic way. not just upon request. to
ensure that all residence halls and greek houses have the
opportunity to address the issue.

Student Government Association. as the students’ re—
presentative. also needs to become more involved. Perhaps
SGA could organize a student organization that promotes
rape awareness and prevention. The University of Florida.
for example. already has for this purpose a student group
which created a Dater‘s Bill of Rights and sponsored a

rape awareness week.

Acquaintance rape. it seems. also might be a substan‘
tial campaign issue a candidate could address in the up-

coming SGA elections.

Even with all the education and awareness programs.
the most important step that needs to be taken lies with
each of us individually. We need to open our eyes to the
problem of acquaintance rape and reevaluate our values

and our attitudes.

Hopefully. then we can erase the cloud that surrounds
acquaintance rape and prevent victims from being stigma-

tized by society
It's the least we can do




NCAA is the
real problem

I read recently that the Kernel
wrote an editorial some months
ago calling for Eddie Sutton's rt-s
ignation Not being a regular read-
er of the Kernel the last time was
probably when l was a [K stur
dcnt v. I don‘t know the content of
your editorial. although judging
from comments elsewhere. I gathr
t-r it was strongly worded Even if
i had read ll. I doubt that my atti
tudc would be different

"trctting‘ people is a lavoritc
sport ol writers thcst- (lays Scarce
ly a week passes without some pulir
l|(' figure surfacing in the prcss as
the target of an angry editor who
cries loudly lor the officials resig

l'nfortunately. in the clamor for
journalistic visibility. facts are frcr
qucntly not allowed to gel in the
way of making a point Being the
courageous first to demand an indi~
vidual‘s departure and public bur
iniliation must be exhilarating. in-

That is what bothers me about
the Kernel demanding in an editor
ial for Eddie Sutton to resign I
personally would have preferred
for my l'niversity to come to the
support of one of its own

Failing that. even in the imper-
fcct world we live in. it would have
been if nothing more the gen
tlcmanly thing to do to wait until
enough facts had been assembled
to make a judgment

And from my

distant vantage

pomt. there are allegations galore
but few facts

I am also uneasy With a system
that permits someone to be
accused. tried and convicted in one
fell swoop. NCAA allegations havc
taken on all the power of a bill of
attainder. and public statements by
NCAA spokespersons are irrer
sponsible and outrageous

If this matter were to be settled
in a court of law. a judge would
throw the case out. When Dale
Brown commented that the
N(‘AA's methods were remm:scent
of the Third Reich. he was right on
the money

Apropos of the NCAA. the rt»
cent Supreme Court ruling in the
Jerry Tarkaman case will only exr
acerbate the situation. If that “en
lightened” ruling doesn't put the
fox in charge of guarding the
chicken coop. nothing ever Wlll' i

Certainly at this pomt. there is
far more evidence that the NCAA
15 guilty of malfeasance than there
is that Eddie Sutton is guilty of
anything. That mess is crying for
editorial comment.

The UK basketball program is
gorng to take some hits The NCAA
already has decided that. The ques
tion is only how severe the penal-
ties will be

As for Eddie Sutton. with the
NCAA and UK barking at his heels.
he has been wise to keep his own
counsel 1 hope that he is exoner»
ated. And after that. l hope he tells
the University of Kentucky to take
the job and jam it

Feminine needs

Quest for cotton comfort on campus a frustrating search

I'm tired of running all over
campus in a time of dire need.
searching desperately tor a tam

If you are female. at some time
or another you probably have been
a victim of that frenzied. mcn~
struation mentality when you
would give anything for a Playtex
product just to spare yourself some

Those of you who have ever been
caught off guard and turn to the
L‘niversity 's feminine hygiene
products dispensers for help under
stand my frustration

It seems that the l'niversity
takes pleasure in inflicting torture
on its female students, Whoever is
responsible for stockng the dis
penscrs in the women's rest rooms
is hell bent on making a simple
transaction like purchasing a tamv
pon as exotic and difficult as a
quest for the ark of the covenant.

You must swim the deepest
ocean. climb the highest mountain
and brave the roughest storm just
to get your hands on a cylindrical
piece of cotton that might satisfy
your body‘s needs for a maximum
of three to four hours

I went on one of those cotton sa-
faris Monday. My prey was the
rare and exotic tampon. Although
they are an endangered species on
UK’s campus. my killer instinct 7
inspired by mother necessity 7! led
me on an adventure

Equipped with only a quarter. I
searched high and low for one ac»
ceptable form of absorbancy

I looked in McVey Hall. I looked
in Pence Hall I looked in the Gre—
han Journalism Building. I looked
in Margaret l, King Library. 1



looked in the Electrical

Then. before giving up on the
idea of purchasing a tampon. I
