Fire raises COIICBI‘II

Residence hall closes off

hathroomsflom residents

By Chris Padgett

Some residents of Blanding III are ready to pack
up their belongings and move out of the co-ed South
Campus residence hall.

On Friday and again yesterday, fires broke out in
restrooms located on the second floor of the three
floor low rise across from the Seaton Center. Dur-
ing both instances, hallways on the second floor
filled with clouds of smoke which crept under the
doors of residents’ rooms. No alarms were triggered
by the smoke in either instance. UK Police are inves—
tigating the fires as arson.

According to a report filed by Blanding III Hall
Director Leslie \Vilson with UK Police early Tues-
day morning, “unknown persons set fire to a bath-
room shower curtain in the second floor bathroom."

john Gavin, a materials science sophomore. is
concerned that fire alarms in the building did not go
offwhen his floor was filled with smoke.

“It is very concerning to me that fire alarms did
not sound during the fiasco," (lavin said. “\Ve could
have died in our sleep."

As a result of the incnlents both men’s restrootns
on the second floor have been closed indefinitely.
Residents have been told to utilize the men's bath-
room on the first floor of the building. The first
floor men’s restroom has only four toilets and four

showers. There are over 80 men living in lllandrng
III who will have to use this facility.

“I think it is really pathetic that all the guys
should be punished and be made to use the single
restroom on the first floor," said David Miracle. a
civil engineering sophomore.

Keit L'ngurait, an undeclared freshman, ques-
tioned whether or not anyone had the authoritv to
close the restroom. i

“I wonder if this is allowable by public health
standards." L'ngurait said.

Signs posted on the bathrooms’ doors early ycs-
terday morning informed residents that they should

contact L‘K Police or the Office of Residents Life it"

they have any information regarding the incidents.

Dale Howard. a political science sophomore and
Blanding III resident. is ready to pack his belong—
ings. “This place is worse than hell," Howard said,
“I can’t wait to get out of campus housing."

\Vilson was not in l.e.ongtou yesterday and could
not be reached for comment.

According to Deborah Ila/.ard, director of rcsi~
dence life, problems have plagued the dorm. ”'I'licrc
seems to be a number of incidents that have occurred
recently," Hazard said. "\Yc would like to bring .i
solution to this problem as soon as possible."

Student may dodge aid crunch

Staff report

The backlog on a government contractor’s com-
puter which caused the National Department of
Education to fail to process 900,000 college financial
aid applications should not affect current UK stu-

Lynda 5. George, Director of Student Financial
Aid, said returning students should be fine, due to a
later application deadline of April 1.

However, George noted that high school seniors
will have to wait to find out how much money they
will receive for attending college.

“For current students, the back log should be out ’
of the way,” George said. “The problem will hit
incoming freshmen who are using t e information as
a deciding factor in choosing a university.”

The form, called the Free Application for Federal

Student Aid, is used to calculate how much a family
can contribute to a student’s education. Schools use
the in formation to determine eligibility for financial
aid ackages.

(Eleorge said the back-up will not affect the
amount of funding but Will delay many students'
notification of their financial aid status.

Elizabeth Hicks, Deputy Assistant Secretary for
Student Financial Assistance Programs, said that the
department now promises to process by the end of
Match all applications that were received by March
1. Applications received during March should be
processed by April 15.

Hicks cautioned that the problems may not be
completely solved and said that it is possible that the
government will not have information in time for
colleges to make financial aid awards by May 1.

Students and parents, wondering why they

haven’t received their financial analyses yet. have
flooded a question-and-answcr phone line. Hicks
said. In response, the department has expanded the
hours and added more operators.

The department blames the backlog on 21 days of
work time lost during the partial government shut-
down and the blizzards that closed offices during a
crucial testing period.

In addition, the departtnent has a new contractor
and is using a new optical imaging system.

Hoping to catch up. contractors have increased
production at two processing companies. which are
now working around the clock. seven days per week.
They also have set up additional work sites.

Education Secretary Richard Riley plans to send a
letter to college presidents, explaining the situation
and asking them to consider delaying that deadline.
she said.

To check on the status of financial aid applica-
tions, applicants can call 319-337-5665 from 8 a.m.
to 10 p.m. EST, Monday through Friday, and ‘) a.m.
to 6 p.m. EST Saturday.

SHIT )(IKI I()I..\l, Sweden ~~~~~ Martin Scorsese is
making sure Swedes know exactly how he feels
about the country's censors. who chopped sortie
violent scenes out of his film “Casino."

The Swedish Censorship Bureau forced the
director to cut three sequences. totaling onc
minute and 40 seconds, out of the three-hour
movie. arguing that they were too violent for view —
ers. the Swedish news agency 'IVI‘ said.

The movie stars Robert De Niro and Sharon
Stone in a tale about sometimes bloody mob influ—
ence in [as Vegas casinos in the I‘)70s.

“It was my Wish that every audience should
experience ‘(jasino' the way I cut it. but that will
not be the case, and a censored version seemed to
be a better alternative than not being able to show
the film at all." read part of his disclaimer translat»

from I 'cnur in Spurs.

“I wrote this piece for Details
originally with the same title and
on the same topic and a bunch of
publishers contacted me because
they thought that it would make a
good book,” (willooly said.

Gillooly admits freely howev—
er, that writing a self— help book
wasn t exactly her goal

"‘I ve never even read (a self-
help book)," Gillooly said. “I in so
Joe-average. I’m just a chick who’s
gone out on a lot of bad dates."

Because she‘s not an “expert,”

humor is one of the tools she uses
to illustrate her ideas.

“IfI hadn’t been able to make
my points with humor —~ and I
know I make serious points in the
book — I would have been too
embarrassed,” Gillooly said. “I
wouldn‘t want to tell people what
to do and not at least give them
the pleasure of cracking up some-
times when their reading it.’

\Vhipping Boy
* i *

With a name like \Vhipping
Bo , I wasn't sure what to expect
7— heavy metal, techno, yodeling?
After 20 seconds, the sounds of
calm stringed instruments, an
Irish accent, and repetitive love
lyrics answered my confusion.

This Dublin based band has a
lot to share with the world.

Hearttt'orm is Whipping Boy’s
debut album. Perhaps, because
Heérm'orm is the band’s first
album, Whipping Boy is afraid to
turn up the unique aspects of their
sound. Most of the songs straddle
the fence between the common
and the unique.

Specifically, the first song of
the album, “Twinkle,” sings the
typical radio love song with repet~
itive lyrics and a catchy melody.
This standard sound occurs
through out most of the album,
but not entirely.

The song “Personality," for
example, diverges from the typical
pop radio template with a lots of
rhythmic changes and vocal

Again, the band really comes
into their own with the song “A
Natural" where the lead vocalist,
Fearghal McKee. sings a sad bal—
lad, beginning with a calm inusi—
eal background and heightening
to a strong rhythm pick—up as the
song ends.

()ne virtue of this album is
McKee‘s calm voice, which per—
forms angry songs like church
hymns. The band’s sound reminds
me of Scandinavian languages. In
Norwegian, for example. the
merry rhythm of the language
makes even the most obscene
words seem kind.

Several songs stray from the
typical radio sound. I like to think
that is the direction the hand will
take in the future.

The group‘s third album, limit»

The middle section of the

album displays the rest of the
band's talents with other personal
journeys from bassist Smith Dow

and guitarist (Ialeb Miles.
Drawing the album to conclir

H Pdrierday. Marc/J 6. 1996. Kentucky Kfl‘flc‘l

Mississippi State

la. 1 Seal (West)
(1H. 10-. la 88)

key Players: Erick Dampier (15.1 ppg. 9.5 rpg):
Daryl Wilson (17.8 ppg. 67 3-pt FGs); Dontae
Jones (13.8 ppg. 6.4 rpg).

Overview: State struggled early in the season. due in large part to a
hole at the pornt guard spot. But the Bulldogs have pulled it
together down the stretch, winning seven of their last nine to fin-
ish alone atop the SEC West. They rely heavily on Dampier and
Wilson to tote the offensive load.

titleek: The Bulldogs are the only SEC team other than UK with a
secure NCAA spot. The trip to New Orleans gives MSU a chance to
improve its seed in the Big Dance. Reaching the finals might make
the Bulldogs as high as a four seed in the NCAAs.




lilo. 2 Seed (W)

(17-11, 8-7 In 8E8)

key Players: Kareem Reid (13.1 ppg. 6.4 apg):
Darnell Robinson (13.1 ppg. 6.7 rpg): Pat
Bradley (8.5 ppg 56 3-pt. FGs).

Overview: Reid pushes the ball upcourt for these young Hogs. but
what they do with it once he gets there is up in the air. Without
leading scorer Jesse Pate. the Razorbacks have struggled down
the stretch. losing three straight and five of their last seven.



Outlook: The Hogs are in trouble. Without Pate and Sunday Ade-
bayo. whom have been forced to leave Arkansas. Nolan Richard-
son‘s club is scrambling to make the NCAAs. The Razorbacks will
need at least one win to make the field of 64: a loss will leave
them kNthing.

Crimson Tide

No. 3 Seed (W)

(18-18. 8-7 In SEC)

. key Players: Eric Washington (17.3 ppg. 6.6 rpg):
Washington Roy Rogers (13.6 ppg. 120 blocks); Brian
° Williams (11.4 ppg. 2.5 apg).

Overview: Opponents are wary of taking the ball to the hole against
Roy Rogers. the SEC's best shot-biocker. But little else about
'Bama is intimidating. The Crimson Tide won only two games
against league opponents who finished better than .500 in the

Outlook: The Crimson Tide absolutely must reach the semis to be
considered for the NCAAs. Alabama has been surging of late. but
losses to St. Peter's and Bucknell early in the season might be too
much to overcome.


Ole Miss

No. 4 Seed (W)

(12-14, 8-10 In 8E8)

ltey Players: Keith Carter (13.5 ppg. 5.3 rpg):
Evans Ansu Sesay (10.7 ppg. 5.8 rpg): Joezon Darby

(9.2 ppg.?fi rpg).

Overview: After struggling early in the season. Coach Rob Evans'
squad is on a roll. The Rebels have won five of seven. enough to
qualify as red-hot in Oxford. But the Rebs' shooting has been
woeful all season. to the tune of a league-worst 40.8 percent.

Outlook: The Rebels, with an extremely young team. have come
into their own late in the year. The NCAAs are out of the question.
and the MT is a stretch at best. However. Ole Miss has a seeming-
ly bright future. with the bulk of
