Some much-

I'm usually an easy
person to please. I
don't require
everything to go my
way, like some
people I know. Right
now, everyone who
knows me is
themselves after that
comment. However,
there are a couple of
objects and ideas
that l need in my life
to be more complete.
Will I go crazy and
hold kittens or small
children hostage if
my meager. yet
sensible. ideas are
not followed? Not
likely, but is it worth
the risk? Hell, most
of this crap is just
inside jokes with my
friends. Enjoy.

I never want to wear
shoes with laces
again. I got some
leather hiking-type
shoes from Bass for
my birthday and they
are just too cool.
They're like gloves,
except without the
separated fingers.

without street
names. Instead, they
should say things
like. ‘the road with
the cool Applebee's,’
or 'that street that I
stopped on to let my
friend throw up.’

Everyone has a friend
who ruthlessly
persuades his or her
buddies to keep their
arms up while riding
a roller coaster. I
would love to see
that person in an
airplane, plummeting
straight toward the
ground. Imagine the
look on everyone’s
faces as they're
being told to scream
and wave.

and a cliché fire

I'd like to see bouncers
at the Liquor Barn. If
you're going to get
thrown out, at least
have it done with
some style.

I definitely want to see a
recurring character
on "Saturday Night
Live" who insists on
wearing big brown
leather gloves, so
hawks and eagles can
rest when he holds
his arms out. They
wouldn't even need
dialogue — just some

Band bringing sounds of Zorro to game

Showtime: After a month of practice,
the band unveils its field show Saturday

By Paul Naker

Football players aren‘t the only people putting in long
hours for tomorrow‘s game.

The UK marching band has been practicing for the half-
time show since Aug. 13. The first show will feature music
from The Mask of Zorro. including the songs “Malagunea”
and “El Toro Caliente."

George Bouldon. associate director of bands. said there
are many changes in store this season, including a parade
around the stadium before its pro-game show to excite fans.

The pre-game will continue to feature the “Cats"
formation. The band will perform the UK fight song,
“My Old Kentucky Home" and the national anthem.

“This year, at the third-quarter break, we're going to
play the fight song three times. Last year. the band sang the
words to the fight song the second time through." Bouldon
said. “Now we‘re hoping the audience will join in on the
singing. It may take a while to get started. but it's a great
way to get support for the football team."

He said the stadium should display the words on the

Future shows include music from the group Earth Wind
and Fire and the movie Moulin Rouge. The Moulin Rouge
show will be performed during the Vanderbilt game.

Bouldon said students are excited about the upcoming

“With a new football coach, students are excited about
the first game. Some students will be performing in front of
more people on Saturday than all the people that live in
their hometown. It’s quite an experience to play for that
many people at one time.” Bouldon said.

Students said they liked participating in hand because
of all the people they met.

“I like band because it makes me feel involved at UK. I
can meet new people and see the games," said Sarah Arnold.
an undeclared sophomore who plays the piccolo.

Morgan Daulton. a mechanical engineering sophomore.

“I like band because of the fact I get to meet so many
people." she said. “When I go to class, there is a good chance
I'll know someone from band."

About 225 students are involved in the marching band.
Members practice every Monday. Wednesday and Friday
from 5-7 pm. During Early Week, otherwise known as band
camp. students practiced from 8:30 am. until 9 pm. Bouldon
said that heat wasn’t a major factor this year during the
camp and that practices seemed shorter the closer they
came to a show.

Bouldon said this season should be a good one.

“We’re all looking forward to a great season,“ he said.
“The band members are the football team’s No. one fans."


DISK; honors those who fought for labor rights


By Becky Helsel


Labor Day means exactly the
opposite of what it sounds like.

Instead of a day for hard
work. it means freedom for UK
students and people across the
United States. It's a day set aside
for rest from normal life.

But Labor Day holds more
meaning than that.

“I think people have

forgotten the meaning of Labor
Day.” said Pat Cooper. an associ-
ate professor in the Women's
Studies program and history de
partment, “I hope this year more
will remember labor rights.”
She's talking about why La
bor Day was declared as a nation
al holiday in 1894 by Congress.
“People just don't stop and
recognize that workers aren't al
ways protected." she said. “If you
don't have unions. they have no

protection at all."

Labor Day truly began on
Sept. 3. 1882. when a group of
American Federation of Laborers
marched in New York City be-
cause of labor rights. Cooper said
one big issue was creating stan-
dard eight-hour work days

"What you have to remember
is industrialization in the 19th
Century." she said. “Individuals
who were previously thought to
be independent were having to

work for a wage, It was an un-
equal relationship employers
had power and workers had

sues for
lost money

PADUCAH. Ky. - Firstar
Bank Inc. and Wal-Mart
Stores are suing an
armored transport
company after $14,798
allegedly came up
missing from a
Hayfield branch bank
and the Paducah
Sam's Club.

Metro Special Police Inc.
of Paducah is owned
by Wallace and
Peggy Adams.

The civil lawsuit, filed in
McCracken County
Circuit Court, seeks
recovery of the
missing money, an
unspecified amount of
punitive damages, and
a trial by jury ”for the
wanton, reckless and
grossly negligent acts"
of Metro Special
Police, the
lawsuit claims.

Metro Special Police had a
contract with Flrstar
Bank Inc. and Wal-Mart
Stores Inc. to provide
armored transport for
cash and currency.

The lawsuit claims that on
Sept. 26, Metro
received $313,200
from the Firstar
branch inside the Wal-
Mart Supercenter in
Mayfield. When Metro
delivered the bagged
currency to Firstar's
main vault in Paducah
for holding the
shipment contained
only $303,200, a
shortage of $10,000,
according to the suit.
The receipt and
delivery was
performed by Metro
employees William
Norris and Linda Wood,
the suit claims.

Peggy Adams said
Wednesday that Norris
and Wood no longer
work for Metro.

construction worker
has stored his 5300
income-tax rebate
check in a safe-

the check bounced.
the only one
reported among
some 60
million checks.

"It's worth more than
$300 to me, all the
malarkey I had to go
through." said
Johnathon Hudson,
22. "(A successful
auction) would make
up for my time and
hassle i put
up with."

The reason the check
was returned was a
computer problem
Wednesday, and the
check is
now negotiable.

But Hudson IS not
eager to cash it,
thinking instead
about selling it as
a curiosity.

Hudson and his fiancee,
Elaine Webb, 20.
learned the check
had bounced Friday.
The problem began
July 30, when
Hudson deposited it
in a branch of Fifth
Third Bank.

As do all federal
checks, his went
through the Federal
Reserve Bank to a
commercial bank. it
returned with a
stamp indicating
that the commercial
bank computer
didn't recognize the
spokeswoman Pat
Brummer said.

Subsequent attempts
by Fifth Third to
cash the check
also failed.

Columnist should lighten up: college shouldn't be so serious

I have read Desiree Bland's commentary on the lack of "higher mentality levels" and
her challenge to all UK students to conduct themselves as model citizens.

While reading this article early in the morning. I was unsure of how I should react.

Should I simply take Ms. Bland's comments at face value. realizing that she has en-
dured but a week of college life and will someday realize there is more to the college ex-
perience than locking herself in her dorm room for fear that the morons of the world

will drag her down to their level'.’

Or, maybe I should live in fear that she will actually draw a following of like-mind-
ed intellectuals. spreading the gospel of "higher mentality levels" in a manner so fer-
vent that even the great Preacher Man of the Student Center will feel compelled to tell

her ‘hey. lighten up!‘

Desiree Bland. whoever you are. I implore you to get involved in your college catn-
pus. Make an effort to meet people who are unlike you. You will undoubtedly realize
that the very people who may seem uncouth and a little rough around the edges on the
surface are often the most intelligent people you will encounter.

Don't be too eager to grow up and allow yourself to have fun you are. after all. a

college student.

The Question.

lhc l iiitcd \tatcs' first r\lilL.tlI \iiicruan
Secretary of State \inI not he attending a I hired
Nation's conference on racism. the New York I mics
reported on Monday In addition tot oliii Powell not
attending the conference. it is possible that the l niied
States yyill boy colt the gathering. his spokesman Richard
I . Hoiiclier said

lhe decision of Secretary Powell to not attend
centers upon language III the meetings agenda LIIIIL l/
trig Israel. ALLURIIIILJ to the limes. President Bush said
on I riday that the I niled States would not participate in
the conference .is long as delegates "pick on Israel "

Secretary Poyyell‘s derision has gained him and
the Hush iltlillllllslftillilll both siipporieis and tritics
Sonic .Ieyyish groups are very liIllLlI against l’oyyell going
to the conference. and hac is his decision. while others
hay e been Ill layoi of sending rcpiesciitaliyes to the con-
lbrcncek preparatory sessions to try to eliminate the
antelsracl language

\hoiiid l’oyyell go or has he made lhc right tlk'ki
sion to not attend ’ Should yy e send any delegates at all’
Why or why noi'

g? ’T :

The last thing Bush needs to do is
further distance himself from
international dialogue. additionally
harming the United States'
relationship with the global
community. The Israel-Palestine
conflict is far too sensitive right now
to bear this sort of self-righteous
posturing; if Bush knows what's good
for him. he'll send delegates.
regardless of whether
Powell participates."

Candice Jackson, Senior Columnist

Powell is a sell out! The United States
is putting racism on the back burner.
saying racism has been phased out
here. Racism is still present. may not
be visible day by day but it's still here.
We need help anyway we can get it
we need someone there!"

Lamin Swann, Special Sections Editor

Hmm. A conference whose purpose is
supposedly to deal with the problem

of global racism has on its meetings
agenda language that is anti-Israel.
I’m still trying to make sense of that
one. What‘s the point of going to a

conference on racism if certain

groups are going to be discriminated

against anyway? Although I normally
despise Bush. I think he and Powell

actually made the right move
this time."

John Wampler, Associate Editor

There's business to attend to here at
home. G.W. has got unqualified
cronies to appoint to jobs and Colin
Powell has to make sure his son is
effectively running the Bush
administration's FCC witchhunt. We
don't have time to worry about a
damn UN. conference."
