 Z—THE KENTUCKY KERNEL. Thursday. Augusf4, 1977


Marla Mitchell

Bruce W. Singleton...

But how shall we remember Kent State?

Geographical names often
find symbolic meaning when
they become linked with
events. Dresden. Hiroshima,
Watergate...the list is a long
one. Their common
denominator is the fact that




the single geographical term
connotes a whole spectrum of
ideas and emotions.

Kent, Ohio is such a
symbdic location. The events
that took place there on that
day in early May seven years
ago sent shock waves
throughout the nation.

No one needs to be
reminded that the 1960’s,
particularly the years of the


Vietnam War. were turbulent
ones. Demonstrations were
stylish. Violence com-

The decade had seen
successful civil righs ac-
tivism. The campus.
historically a scene of
demonstration for “liberal"
cause and ideologies, was a
logical place for the anti-war
demonstrations to center,
even at the dawn of the 1970's.

The people who par-
ticipated in those uprisings
had more than an ideology to
defend, though. For many,

.the college campus was a

haven from the draft. And the
draft, so hated by the eligible
cannon fodder, was the
perpetual target for dissent.

Space limitations


The amount of space avail-
able to the users of the
Computing Center in McVey
Hall has recently been re-
duced. Room 109, which con-
tained much needed refer-
enoe manuals and additional
table space at which users
could work, has been conver-
ted for Computing Center
staff usage. This latest devel-
opment has made it clearly
impossible for the Center to
serve adequately the needs of
the non—staff user.

The last year has seen a
marked increase in student
rse of the computing facilities
in McVey Hall. The loss of
Room 109 worsens an already
deplorable situation in which
hundreds of users compete
for only a handful of seats and
other limited resources. The
unavailability of reference
manuals after 5 pm. and on
weekends makes anything
buts am. to 5 pm. computer
use extremely difficult and,
at times, impossible. The
facilities available to the

non-staff user have never
bear satisfactory. and the
further loss of space ampli-
fis the alread existent prob-
lems in addition to creating
some new ones.

We feel that it is time
to forego the temporary and
invariably inadequate short-
term “patching" of prob-
lems. These problems can
only be solved by a long-
range, comprehensive com-
puting-relating policy.

It seems to us that devoting
mtre of the space in McVey
Hall to computing facilities is
necessary. Another alterna-
tive might be the creation of
an additional complete user
complex elsewhere on cam-
pus. But either of these
solutions is at best a tempor-
ary, though necessary, ex-
pedient, and we call on the
administration to develop a
cogent and realistic policy.

The fact is undeniable:
mire space and a better
computing policy is a must.

Concerned students
and faculty

The atmosphere of the
nation did little to alleviate
that dissent. Recent
revelations on the activities
of the FBI under J. Edgar
Hoover show some of the
official paranoia. The press,
too, reported and perhaps
distorted what occurred.

The battle lines were

For college ad-
ministrations. the thought

of higher learning that been
entrusted to them by the

To preserve those facilities,
they felt, it was necessary to
meet violence with violence.
Perhaps real violence was not
in tended by either side.

Perhaps it was a national
poker game: each side
bluffing. raising, calling.

But both sides lost.

It is not fashionable today
to demonstrate. Dissent,
certainly, is common, witness
the confrontation at our own
law school last fall. But the
type of demonstration that
frequently occurred in the
1960 ’s has hopefully become a
thing of the past.

Perhaps the issues are not
as burning today. Perhaps
the level of awareness is not
as high. I prefer to think that'
neither is the case.

I hope today’s lack of
violence in dissent is a sign of
maturity and understanding.
For if we learned anything
from Kent State, it’s the

For safe abortions— NOW

Dear Editor:

Senator Mike Moloney has
proposed a resolution to the
Interim Judiciary Committee
to place pressure on the
Department for Human
Resources to change its
present policy of providing
Medicaid reimbursements
for abortions.

The Lexington—Bluegrass
Chapter of the National
Organization of Women
(NOW) strongly condemns
such a resolution and sup
ports the right of all women to
choose abortion, including
women who are eligibb for
the Medicaid program

(without it these women will
be unable to obtain safe and
legal abortions).

It is outrageous that people
attempt to impose their
personal definition of
morality on women,
especially those least able to
fight back. We oppose forced
pregnancies and we oppose
this attempt to force women
to badt-alley abortionists.

We demand that Mike
Moloney listen to the
majority opinion on abortion,
rather than that of the vocal
minority, and retract his
resolution in favor of one that
supports abortion rights for

all wanen.

Mike Moloney should also
educate himself on the
general issue of birth control:
given the lack of birth control
information and the lack of
available safe and fail-proof
birth control methods,
abortion allows women some
measure of control over their
reproductive lives.

NOW calls upon all men
and women who support
every woman’s right to
choose aba'tion to respond
publicy to this insensitive

Nails by Rox Anne could be
the answer.

Nail sculpturing is a
proce$ that constructs nails
by painting an acrylic mix-
ture onto the real nail to form
a perfect simulated nail.

With 21 other salons
throughout the country.
Kentucky’s first shop has
recently been opened in

Lexington at 1429 Village Dr.
Owner Peggy Arvine says
most of her customers have
been females between the
ages of 12 and 65. Anyone
under 18 years of age must
have parental permission.

“Many women don't feel
complete with stubby nails.
Nail sculpturing is a con-
tinuing process so you can get
your nails out to the length
you want them. After the
customer's nails have grown
out. we will remove the
simulated nail at no charge.

“However, many women
prefer the simulated nails to
their own as they are much

Many celebrities frequent

including Barbara Streisand.

After the initial $35 fee for

necessary every two or three
weeks to keep pace with the
natural nail growth.

One word of caution: Nails
by Rox Anne is approved by
the Food and Drug Ad-
ministration whereas many
nail salors in the country are
not. Nail sculpturing can be
very dangerous (resulting in
permanent loss of finger—
nails) unless it has been
federally approved and done
by a liscened beautician.

but because the band played
well below his key, forcing
him into inaudibility. Surely a
four-piece band can arrange
its music to suit the cast;

'lhe singing in general was
inconsistent, indicating a too-
hurried production job. A
gidly rendition of “Every-

just sort of silly

body Ought To Have A Maid"
with Ehredt (Pseudolus) and
Ray Smith (Senex) was the
joyful highpoint of “Forum."
Martin Brothers delivering
Miles Gloriosus’ “Bring Me
My Bride” was also powerful-
lysung, and fun to watch.
Weakest of the perform-
ances were Jennifer Pritchett

H60, the lovers. Pritchett’s
w‘spy warble may suit the
character of Philia, the desir—
able virgin, but extended

listening tends to grate—
Jeannette McDonald has no
place in a Roman forum.
Miller sang softly, lacking
spirit and interest. While
Hero is a vacuous character,
his singing could certainly
benefit from some substance.

The worst fault of this
production was the insistence
on overacting. “Forum" is a
farce, the audience knows it,
and should not be subjected to

acting troweled on, and her

those shortcomings, sounding
strong, clear and enjoyable.
Dean Haynes (Hysterium,

The best acting came from

Martin Ambrose (Erroneous)
and Miles Stevens. Stevens as

Onemore time around with the hard
rockers. Three are new bands, the other
group has been around nearly forever. All

that means that the state of heavy metal

Rod Coombes) has held forth for five albums
now. longer than any previous lineup. Their
maturity is apparent with their new release.
although the limits of the band's creativity
are also beginning to show.

That statement is based not on the notion
that Strawbs‘ work is ofa lower quality than
before" quite the contrary—but that said
work is just bearing a suspicious resem»
blance to earlier works.

It‘s not that “Cut Likea Diamond" is a bad
song. it‘s that it sounds just like “Turn Me
Round" from the earlier Deep Cuts. The
same can be said about the title cut and its
similarity to “So Close and Yet So Far
Away." also from Deep Cuts.

Hard-core Strawbs fans shouldn‘t be put
off too much by the situation; new keyboard
players John Mealing and Robert Kirby
contribute some nice string arrangements.
as well as good double-keyboard attacks.
that keep the whole affair from sliding into

probablyhaven’t heard of the group at all, in
which case you owe it to yourself to pick up

Guitarist-vocalist Ross Stagg is the
driving lorce behind this album, which
features excellent songs at the beginning and
end, and garbage in between.

The record starts out hot with “Down to
You” an! “Pain ofLove,” both melodic (and
melodramah'c) rockers, and bogs down



immediately thereafter. “Soft Touch" on
side two gets the proceedings back in gear
and “Violent Love-Secret Damage" brings
the album to a rousing finish.

What's left are three dismal numbers,
including one little goodie whose main at-
tribute is. of all things. a drum solo. (I hate
drum solos.) Aside from that. drummer
Mick Underwood is perfectly competent. He
just has problems, as do must drummers,
when ldt to his own devices.

Producer Chris Kimsey does a creditable
job with Stagg‘s deep. gravelly voice, par~
ticularly considering that he was called in at
the last minute after Roger Glover and Louie
Austin butchered “In Your Ear.“

lfyou can live with that and the other weak

the album—the rest of the record is well
worth the time and money.

ules, three tight division rac-
es are conceivable. The Cubs

contenders will not have the
misfortune of facing each
other after Boston and New

series Sept. 19 and 20.

This is one race which will
almost definitely go down to
thelast day.

The AL West is also draw-
ing tighter as the White Sox
cling to a 3% game lead over
Minnesota. Kansas City and
fast closing Texas lurk mena-
cingly only 51/2 back. This
should be Kansas City's piece
d cake but none of the other
three can be discounted.

In order to find a genuine
lu'serace this fall, one must
look ahead to the possibility
d a classic confrontation
between Triple Crown winner
Seattle Slew and three-time
Htrse of the Year Forego, a
seven-year-old gelding.

dates for 1977’s Horse of the
