Hemenway ’s town meetings begin today

Diverse audiences, locations
highlight chancellor’s agenda


By Brian Bennett
Senior Staff Writer


Call it Bobapalooza

Chancellor for the Lexington
Campus Robert Hemenway’s annu-
al town meeting series takes on a
distinct concert tour flavor this
year. Instead of the usual three or
four meetings, Hemenway is taking
his show on the road for 13 campus
stops during the next two weeks.

Hemenway's audiences and are-
nas promise to be diverse. Venues
range from a meeting with Physical
Plant Division employees at the Pe-
terson Service Building garage to
one with College of Engineering fa-
culty in the Robotics Building.

“’Ihe people with the best solu-
tions to problems tend to be those
people who are closest to the prob-
lem." llemenway said. “The stu-
dents in the classroom. the staff try-
ing to make the computer system
work. the faculty working in labs or
in the library. those are the people

closest to the problems of the Uni-
versity and usually the most crea-
tive about finding improvements."

The first two town meetings are
today. At noon. Hemenway will ad-
dress faculty from the colleges of
architecture. fine ans. communica-
tions and information studies. and
social work at the Otis A. Single-
tary Center for the Ans.

At 4 pm. the chancellor will
meet with College of Agriculture
faculty at Seay Auditorium. Every-
one is welcome at each town meet-

The theme of this year's series is
“Where Do We Go From Here?"

“l‘ll be throwing out some chal-
lenges." he said. "it‘s time to chal-
lenge people to stan thinking about
where we want to go. what the Lex-
ington Campus should be for the
next five years.“

Hemenway plans on using the
town meetings for generating a new
Lexington Campus Agenda. 3 set of
goals for improving teaching. re-

By Lance Williams

There was nothing unusual about
the crowning of the Homecoming
King and Queen Saturday night in
Commonwealth Stadium.

However. questions still linger
concerning alleged problems in one
of the polling places on campus.

All the votes that were made at
the Margaret 1. King Library on
Thursday from ll am. to 2 pm.
were destroyed because of the ac-
tions of the poll workers.

“One of the organizations was
‘dropping hints' to everyone to vote
for certain people," said Caroline
Shively. Student Activities Board
Homecoming chairwoman.

"Ihey would say. ‘Here‘s a can—
didate you could vote for.‘ ” Shive-
ly said.

She said royalty co—chairman
Tommy Dennison saw the problems
during the voting and then reponed

“One of the people (working the
polls) was trying to influence the
voters." Dennison said.

Dennison discovered the problem
at 1 pm. but let the voting continue
until the end of the shift.

ballots had been nrrned in. Denni-
