University Senate
Voices Concern
About FBI Action
Dy JANE BROWN
Assistant Managing Editor
The University Senate passed
a resolution yesterday urging the
University president and the
Hoard of Trustees to investigate
possible corrections of '"deficiencies" in the state law which allowed F13I investigators access
to a class roster recently.
The Senate in other action
refused to change exams scheduled for Dec. 23 to Dec. 16, a
free day, and moved to schedule
a special meeting for discussion
of a Tripartite Committee report
to reorganize the Senate.
The measure adopted by the
Senate in reaction to FBI possession of a UK class roll was
approved in place of a stronger
resolution asked by Political Science professor Cene Mason. Two
of Mason's students had been
questioned about the content of
class discussion by the FBI in

Movie Review

Context of Time Important
JL

By LARRY KIELKOPF
Old movies can never be fairly judged by contemporary standards. They must be viewed in
the context of their time. With
this in mind, Eisenstein's "Ivan
the Terrible" conies across as a
truly innovative film of the mid
1920's. Unfortunately,
it was
filmed in 1911.
Presented last night by the
Russian club in the Student Center Theatre, the film's technical
immaturity is, however, excusable. If one recognizes the context of the time, then the context of the culture should certainly be considered, the film having
been shot in Russia at the height
of Stalin's rule.
Our story opens with the coronation of Ivan. As quickly as
he dons the crown, Ivan delivers
a power mad inaguration speech
on the necessity of law and order
and internal security. Previous
critics quickly become stalwart
enemies and plot against him
throughout the remainder of the
film.

During the subsequent celebration; however, Ivan gets a
chance to make good on his imperialistic promises when foreign
emissaries enter with threats
against the new monarch's domain. Ivan declares his moral innocence, mobilizes his army, and
marches . off to crush the foe.
As a result of the campaign,
Ivan becomes ill and dies his
throne apparently up for grabs.
Former cohorts ignored his deathbed pleas, preferring to wait and
see who took the reins of power.
All, that is, save one Prince
Kurlsky, whose unswerving "loyalty" is more than just slightly
due to his camel desires for the
Czarina.

to state the objectives of Student

After being silenced by a student who said that the candidates should be allowed to "speak

he was only going to say that
the Student Coalition candidates
were "loyal Americans."
Mary Law son, Marty Webster

Perhaps American ecologies are
being a bit too harsh with some of
our major oil companies. We may
be selling them short in issuing a
blanket condemnation.
True, most oil companies have
polluted the air we breathe with
their smoggy products. They have
also fought every movement to purify exhaust systems, especially when
it is hinted, that they should aid
in the cost of the project. And
they have been extremely reluctant
to introduce unleaded gasolines due
to the slight additional cost involved. To increase their public
image, some companies have introduced gasoline mixtures with a
"low lead content." These mixtures

often turn out to be the same old
stuff with jacked up prices, and
perhaps a miniscule reduction in
lead content.
However, Gulf Oil Company
has rushed to the rescue of America's environment. Realizing the
tragic amount of pollutants its products spill into our lungs daily,
Culf has taken action to improve
our situation by distributing free

"independents" or candidates not supported by the then powerful "Greek machine." Since then the idea behind party
formation has essentially boomeranged
on us. Today, if you vote for a party
you are voting for an ideology. Individual qualifications and platforms have
been overshadowed by party promises
and propaganda. All students suffer from
this type of electoral system. The Student Government Assembly has become
bogged down in ideological semantics
and has thus become ineffectual as a
legislative body. I have sat as a member
of the Assembly long enough to have
seen a minority group rule with disregard for the majority interests, and a
majority group rule with little respect
for minority rights.
It is for this reason that the three
candidates running as the SAR Party
are not campaigning on one platform but
stand united in their interest to represent
all students and their desire to work
for the good of all. These candidates along
with three other candidates I feel are
exceptionally qualified to serve as student
representatives.
It is for this reason that I seek your
r,
support of Tom McCauley, Keith
Willie Cates, Jeff Cumer, Tim
Cuilfoile and Mark Paster.
These candidates will speak for the
majority and minorities and maybe we will
come a little closer to having a student's
government.

To the Editor

attempt has been made, largely
ACT candidates, to keep Student
Coalition candidates off the SC election
ballot. Now, the posters of those on the
Coalition ticket are mysteriously being
ripped down. Could it be that certain
ACT candidates and their komrades are
actually hooligans and bandits in disguise?

To the Editor
The following letter was sent to the
editor of the Kentucky Wildcat
We have heard that the Kentucky
Wildcat plans to run an ad for the Action Coalition Party in the upcoming
issue. As party chairman, speaking for
Action Coalition, I absolutely forbid this
action. It has not been authorized by the
party, nor by any member of the party,
nor will it be. Should this ad appear,
it will constitute a fraud on the part of
the Student Coalition party for the purpose of illegally disqualifying Action Coalition candidates.
Should this ad appear, it will confirm
our opinion that the Student Coalition
Party would use any means, no matter
how depraved, to gain its ends.

Sen. Tower, USA's Irony
To The Editor
After his speech here at UK, I had the
following encounter with US Senator John
Tower. I would like to share my experience
with you.
Moore Senator Tower, how are you able
to resolve the blatant contradiction which
exists between the professed ideal of a
supposedly Christian country, America,
and the realities of this country's actions
in Southeast Asia? For example, bombing
and napalming innocent peasant villages
is plainly immoral and
Senator Tower (cutting me off): Such strategy is necessary in a war situation like
the one in Vietnam. If the Communists
were to take over South Vietnam a million
Catholics would be murdered which we
cannot allow. Communism is the greatest
tlireat that the world has
ever known.
Moore: What you say about the killing
of Catholics may or may not be true;
but Christians cannot commit highly immoral actions if we, as Christians, are
to offer to
peoples an example of what it means to be Christian.
We have to prove we are better than
they are; we must show the world that
we are more moral than the Communists.
Needless to say, hideously murdering innocent women and children will not offer
this kind of example.
At this point Senator Tower directed
his attention to other matters and made it
clear our discussion was over. When I
realized the Senator had nothing further
to say, I called out to him as he walked

away shaking friendly hands, "You've
confirmed what I suspected, a person
cannot be both an American and a Christian." The Senator, the local
and students dreaming enviously of the
Senator' s power huddled together were not
pleased with what I had said; but only
one had the imagination to reply, he sai
