urvey examines higher education relorm

UK graduates lead new

By Stephen Trlmble

.s'emnr Staff H "ritrr

lf Gov. Paul Patton ho es to
persuade the public that his igher
education reforms are necessary,
he might have to add “Professor
Patton" to his letterhead and
teach a statewide class called
lligher l‘lducation Reform 101.

Kentuckians are either over—
whelmingly opposed to Patton’s
reform ideas (such as a higher
education “super-board”), or are
ignorant of Patton’s reasons for
wanting to change the system,
according to the results of a survey
sponsored by Front & Center, a
new organization promoting
activism among progressive Ken—
tucky Democrats.

The poll, conducted by Lex—
ington’s Preston-Osborne
Research Group, shows that ()3
percent of Kentuckians prefer
individual boards rather a “one-
board structure,” which received
only 22 percent support.

Roughly 14 percent of the 800
people polled said they didn’t

“I think that more than any-
thing else, the poll shows that
(Patton) will not only have to sell
his reforms to the legislature. but
he’ll have to sell reform to the
public as well,” said Lexington
attorney Scott Crosbie, a former
UK Student Government Associ-
ation president, student trustee
and now spokesman for Front &

Even though Patton may call a
special session of the General
Assembly later this car to reform
higher education, t e majority of
Kentuckians appear content with
the status quo.

On a scale of one to IO, more
than half of the people polled
(426) rated the state’s system with
a seven or eight. Only 6 percent,
or 48 people, gave higher educa-
tion a four or less.

Even so, the mean avera e was
a 6.89 rating, which is sfightly
lower than the participants' rating
of higher education throughout
the United States (6.96).

Hockey team
scores iunding

Solherg announces candidacy
By Gary Wulf

. 'lirot lute .Vvt'u‘i‘ Editor

The fate of the Cool Cats hockey team was put in
the hands of the Student Government Association
last night and it responded by a provin funding.

The hockey team requested S15 18 or the remain-
der of the season so it could rent Lexington Ice Cen-
ter for practice.

The Cool Cats rank third in attendance of campus
sports at UK, behind men’s football and basketball.
However, attendance has dropped in half this season.

Last season, the Cool Cats avera ed 600 fans a
game. Only 300 fans a night have fille the stands this

Team member Chris Page blames it on the num-
ber of away games the team has
this season.

“We don’t have that much of a
say on our schedule Last year
we had very few away games,”
Page said.

SG A Fan support rovides much of
the income for t e Cool Cats, but

with so many away games, travel
expenses have added up.

Graduate Student senator Michael Tomblyn
opposed the funding of the bill.

“I'm not particularly sure if we should be funding a
club sport,” Tomblyn said.

Senator at large Alizha Rice disagreed with

She said the Cool Cats deserved the money due to
the impact their games had on student morale.

The bill passed easily 28- I —1.

After the Cool Cats were kept on the ice, the bulk
of the meeting concentrated on polling areas for SGA
elections in March.

Election Board Supervisor Jay Putnam and Vice
President Chrissy Guyer went into the meeting with
a simple proposal stating the time and places of
polling areas.

90 minutes later, senators were still debating on
times and the amount of polls in each spot.

Weary and noticeably aggravated with the amount
ofamendments bein made to the proposal, senators
stated one of the trut ful hurts of an election.

“If you want to vote, you’re going to vote no mat-
ter what,” said Senator at Large Ashley Fortney.

After it was all over, only one amendment was
made to the bill.

Tomblyn proposed to extend the hours of the Lex-
ington Community College poll by nine hours.

The amendment was proposed because of a poten-
tial LCC student running for SGA vice-president.

Matt Solberg, a political science senior and- UK
Lambda president, declared his candidacy for the
presidential seat with Josh Robinson as his running

Robinson, an LCC student, and Solberg originally
requested that a booth be added.

Solber ’5 re uest was defeated, however, and set-
tled with omb yn’s amendment.

Last car, only 69 students voted at LCC. But with
an LC student running for an executive seat, that
should change.

“They have told me that they will do a lot of heavy
cam aigning this year,” said LCC senator Gregory
\Vil iams.

In I991, an LCC student ran for SGA president
and an additional booth was added to accommodate
the turnout.

In addition, a bylaw amendment em hasizing sen-
ate member-5’ accountability was tabletf.’

Student art
on display

By Brian Dunn
Contributing Writer

Fighting a potential for sterile and sanitized
atmosphere, University Health Services found a
cure in art.

University Health Services hosted the grand
o ening of a student art gallery in the Student

ealth Center last night that features the work of
six art education students.

The gallery showcases a variety of art, includ-
ing crayon drawings and uilt patterns.

Stephanie Fiala, second-year graduate student,
said it was nice to have the opportunity to exhibit
her art. The gallery, Fiala said, is a chance for stu-
dents and others to come see what art students are
doing today. Donald Hoffman, an art education
professor and adviser to the Student Arts League,
said the exhibit gave eople the chance “to learn
and to appreciate the human arts experience —— to
humanize themselves.”

The idea for the gallery started when the Uni-
versity Health Service decided to renovate several
years ago. Dr. Spencer Turner, director of the
University Health Service, said artwork was the
last touch in the renovations, but the service
didn’t want to spend money on outside art.

“We said, ‘Wait a minute. We have a lot of art
students on campus,” Turner said.

When the Health Service officials approached
Hoffman, they agreed to set up a student art
gallery rou hly every semester.

Althoug Health Services displayed student art
last semester, this semester's is considered the
gallery’s “official kick-off,” Turner said.

In addition to Fiala, who showed mixed media
pieces, Scott Richards, a graduate student, is dis-
pla 'ng crayon drawings; Dawn Wilson, a senior,
is s owing photography; Kori Bloom, a junior, is
