SGA meeting may focus on fiscal responsibility

Senior Staff Writer

Last year the Student Government
Association Senate made its televi-
sion debut Tonight the Senate may
have one of its largest viewing audi-
ences when goes on the air at 7:30.
('1' elecable Campus Channel 19.)

The Senate could address the is-
sue of fiscal responsibility in SGA,
as was prompted by a Kentucky
Kemel investigation into uses of an

unregulated presidential checking

Some senators said the issue
would be addressed. but they were
not sure if the Senate would go into
executive session.

The investigation showed that
SGA President Sean Lohman used
an unregulated checking account.
for which he had sole signature au-’
thority, to pay bonuses to election
officials and office employees and
to cash a personal check.




Lohman inherited the account
that was started in fall 1985 by
then-SGA president John Cain. Un-
like other SGA accounts. the check-
ing account had no administrative
oversight Lohman closed the ac-
count last Wednesday at the request
of UK officials.

Records show the vast majority
of expenses were just. But, on occa-

sion they show that the SGA presi~
dent's freedom over the account
may have been too great.

“It could have been Mother Tere-
sa in charge of that account and you
still would have needed some con-
trols.“ College of Allied Health Sen-
ator Jill Lowry said.

Although the checking account
did not break any University regula-
tions, some senators say Lohman
could have exercised better judg-

$1,500 in bonuses and honoraria to
office employees during his two

years as president.

Center helps students
find jobs, perspective

Contributing Writer

Although finding a job should be
a major concern for UK students. it
shouldn't be their only one, counse-
lors at UK’s Career Center say.

“Some think that the only goal of
a college education should be get~
ting a job." said Drema Howard. a
career counselor and associate di-
rector of the center. “I try to help
students see that a Job is only
one aspect and that they need to
take into account their own goals
and values."

The center. located on the second
floor of the Mathews Building,
hasn’t always had this philosophy.
It was primarily an employment of-
fice and recruitment center as late
as I980, when it was called the
“Placement Center."

Today's Career Center provides a
complete Resource Library to aid
students in choosing a career. The
center also offers workshops on re-
sume writing and job interviewing
skills, including mock job inter»

Many of the students who come
to the center, however, do not uu-
lize anything but the Job placement
program. Howard said.

Brenda Owen, a fifth-year phar-
macy student, did not attend any of
the workshops because “they didn‘t
fit into my schedule. I would like to
have participated, but the times (for
the workshops) were very fixed."

Electrical engineering senior
Gary Phelps said many students
simply don’t know about all of the
serVices offered by the center.

DHAHRAN, Saudi Arabia —— AI-
lied warplanes and the USS Missou-
ri‘s mighty guns shattered the mom-
ing peace from Baghdad to
Kuwait’s embattled shores yester-

day. Hard-pressed Iraq banned sales
of heating oil and other fuel to its
citizens. who grew ever more des~
perate under a mid- winter siege.

Baghdad said 428 civilians have

Up on the desert war from, the
Syrian contingent in Operation
Desert Storm clashed with the Iraqis
for the first time.

The Saudi military said Syrian ar-
tillery drove 30 inu'uders back into
Kuwait after they crossed into Saudi
Arabia. But a news pool repon from
the front said US. Marine officers
gave a different account: Iraqi
troops struck twice across the hero

in one attack. being pushed back in

Behind the scenes in Mideast cap-

Two professors specializing in
Middle Eastern issues said at UK
last night that anti—American sen-
timent by the Arabs can be traced
all the way back to World War l.

William Shorrock. a professor
at Cleveland State University, and
William Adams. a anthropology
professor at UK, discussed Arabi-
an attitudes towards Western na-
tions in “The Arabs & The West",
the second in a series of forums
held in UK‘s Student Center.

“Many Arabs feel betrayed by
the West. a betrayal for which no
adequate recompense has been
given," Shorrock said.

Shorrock said that, despite


President Bush’s insistence that
the current crisis has nothing to do
with Arab feelings during World
War I. it has deep roots there and
in events leading up to the war.

The anti-Westem sentiment
may have started with European
colonialism of Middle East coun-
tries in the mid-1800s and contin-
ued with English and French man-
dates of many Arab countries after
World War I, he said.

Many European nations began
to colonize Middle Eastern na-
tions for economic and political
reasons, he said. The central na—
tion in this imperialism was Tur-
key, which Britain colonized. Brit»
ain sought to exert a great deal of
Western influence on this nation.
As a result. Shorrock said, it be-
came dependent on British reve-

nue to survive economically.

As Western nations began to
weaken, Turkey was convinced to
go to war against them on Germa-
ny's side.

As a result. the Westem na—
uons persuaded the Arabs to lead
a revolt against Turkey. In return.
the Arab revoluuonaries thought
they were going to obtain inde»
pcndcnce and land. However. the
Arab territories were parccled out
in treaties to Western nations.

The Arabs felt they should have
gained control of Palestine. and
that they were cheated out of it by
the Western nations. “Indeed, Pal-
estine is a promised land. Great
Britain promised it to itself, the
Arabs thought it to itself, and the
Balfour agreement promised it to
the Jews,“ Shorrock said.

Monday’s bid by Iranian Presi-
dent Hashemi Rafsanjani to medi

The Soviets and Turks signaled

“He's got to say. ‘I‘m going to

Bush said.

President Bush said yesterday
he doubts Iraq‘s army can be ex-

pelled from Kuwait without a
ground war and announced he is
sending Defense Secretary Dick
Cheney and Gen. Colin Powell to
the Persian Gulf for a "firsthand
status report.“

Bush, at a news conference.
said “it would be a lot mom to
see a successful conclusion" if
Saddam Hussein were ousted or
killed, but he stressed that the
US. objective was still simply to

drive Saddam‘s forces front Kuwait.
Any other world leader would have
yielded by now rather than submit
his country to relentless bombings
and missile attacks, Bush said.

Spelling out rigid conditions for
any cease-fire, Bush said Saddam
would have to undertake “a credi-

leadership to power.

“He's got to say, I‘m going to get

The solution to nation’s education dilemma is to bring down other countries’ standards

Even as you read this, 4-yearoold
school children in Tokyo are com-
posing operas in Latin. Here at
home. recent surveys indicate that
the average high school senior
thinks that Joan of Arc is an actress
on "Knots Landing" and that Joyce
Carol Oates is a breakfast cereal.

British school kids are adding bi-
zarre new elements to the “Periodic
Table of Elements“ at a rate of three
per day. Meanwhile, American
youngsters slowly fossilize as ex-
ploding turtles battle it out with
sub—machine guns on TV.

Gemian children can name the
shoe size of every American presi-
dent, including Chester A. Arthur (a
size 9). Billy and Betty Lunchbox
have arguments on the school bus
about which New Kid on the Block
has the coolest hairstyle.


You bet it is. Education in the
United States isn't what it used to
be. Something needs to be done; cit-
izens need to scream.

And every educational muckety-
muck agrees on one thing: No one
can agree about what to do. There
are no easy answers.

After all, a serious attempt to
raise American educational stan-
dards would mean patience, sacri-
fice and commitment. That’s why


the new solution is obvious: Let's
forget about raising our standards
and do something much easier.
Let’s get every other country on the
face of the earth to lower theirs.

Sound difficult? Not so.

Let‘s use the lovely island nation
of Japan as an example, shall we?

By lobbying their legislature, ad-

,vertising on their television net-

works and flooding them with
handy-dandy anti-education para-
phernalia, in no time Japanese test
scores will drop like nobody’s busi-
ness, to coin a phrase.

To see how this could happen,
let’s begin with what we can do in
the classroom.

Japanese children work too hard.
We need to lobby for more study
halls, where they can sleep on their
desks, shoot spitballs, carve vulgar
phrases into the desks and copy
each others’ homework.

Pointless classes can be added to
the curriculum. Endless hours can
be spent while a portly physical ed-

ucation teacher yells at the children
about why they shouldn't horse
around while they put up the volley-
ball net —— a common occurrence
here. Let’s encourage them to take
health, so they can waste time read-
ing an inane textbook about yogurt.

When former President Ronald
Reagan is in Japan again for another
of his multimillion dollar speaking
tours, let’s ask the Gipper to sell
them on his administration‘s cafete—
ria food policy.

Ketchup is officially classified as
a vegetable, salt is a meat and
cheese puffs are dairy products.
What is the official designation of
that strange gelatin dessert we used
to have all the time in elementary
school? Science hasn‘t figured it

Anyway, Japanese school chil-
dren will have trouble retaining in-
formation when the pangs of hunger
leave them chronically woozy.

Is there even a Japanese version
of our famed American brand of
Cliff’s Notes, that miracle of Yan-
kee ingenuity that makes it possible
to skim through a Shakespearean
tragedy during the detergent and
light beer commercials we see dur-
ing a typical network sitcom? If not,
let‘s invent one for them.

But the classroom is but one im-

Van Damme still looking for a role

Actor’s latest
2’ action flick

short on style



Senior Staff Critic

After seven films, you would
think that Jean-Claude Van Damme
would have discovered the secret to
making a reliable low-budget action
film, instead of being a pan of yet
another near hit.

His latest attempt, “Lionheart,”
does provide a few new angles on
the usual Van Damme persona and
plenty of opportunities to showcase
Van Damme’s martial arts talents.

His character this time is Lyon, a
reluctant member of an especially
corny and inept French Foreign Le-
gion, who deserts in order to go to
America and help his dead broth-
er’s wife and child.

Naturally, once in America, he
doesn’t try to check out an honest
day’s pay but rather plunges imme-
diately into the lucrative bare-
knuckles fight circuit.

Of course, Van Damme flicks
have never been known for plots
worth taking seriously. His best
film, “Cyborg,” had him as a Mad
Max-type hero doing battle against
quasi-humans in a rather sunny

”the success or failure of his films
rely solely on the amount of actual
acting talent is around him and how
much screen time is given to his
well—choreographed fight scenes.

Van Damme’s acting tends to im-
prove on a step-by-step basis, so in-
deed his performance was a little
better than the last. The best acting
comes from newcomer Harrison

Kats seek win, dominance

Staff Writer

Before the 1990-91 season began
the UK women's basketball team
set the goal of winning all their in-
state games.

That goal
slipped away
just last month
.... after a disap-
pointing 70—63
loss to Louis-

However, UK
coach Sharon
Fanning isn‘t
going to let that
loss dampen her FANN'NG
team‘s quest to establish dominance
in the state of Kentucky.

“it is a priority to win in-statc
games," Fanning said.

The Lady Kats, (14-7 overall, 1—5
Southeastern Conference) will get a
chance to put a link on the chain
they want to lay around the com-
monwealth‘s borders tonight when
they face Morehead State Universi-
ty tonight in Johnson Arena on the
Morehead campus.

The Lady Eagles, however, have
enough talent to test l'K‘s bruised

Morehead has won two of its last
three games. They defeated both
Austin Peay and Murray State uni-
versities, raising their record to 10-9

we expect to win," Fanning said.

The game is the first of five
straight road games for the Lady
Kats —— before they come back
home for their regular season finale
against Florida Feb. 23.

Though the Kats have compiled a
dismal 1—5 record in the tough SEC,
they have shown a much-needed
dominance over non-conference op-

“If we don‘t win our non—
conference games, the NCAA will
not be a reality for us,” Fanning
said. “We must do well with in non-

with 14.3 points per game

Morehead likes to put up the
three-pointer, which may pose prob-
lems to the UK defense. Their top
three-point threat is Beth Ousley.
So far this season Ousley has hit
40.2 percent (43-107) from long

Besides being able to hit the trey,
the Lady Eagles are very experi-

“All five (starters) played against
us last year — and played well,"
said Fanning.

After a crushing 87-71 loss to
Georgia Sunday, Fanning has devel-
oped a game plan for Morehead.

“Play our own game and do a bet-
ter job of communicating, along
with playing good team defense,”
Fanning said.

Unfortunately for the Kats, they
will have to play without starting
point guard and lone senior Tracye
Davis. Davis is out with shoulder
injuries. She hopes to be back for
next Saturday‘s conference game
against Mississippi State.

With Davis out, the job of direct—
ing the team will fall to freshmen
Karen Killen.

“We don’t want to push her into
anything too quickly," Fanning

As the Kats enter the stretch of
their season, Fanning feels her team
is putting in an effort. The team‘s
strength is “intensity — we are
playing awfully hard, and I am
proud of that."

Although her team has lost two of
their last three games, Fanning does
not think her team is struggling.

“When I look at our progress it’s
our team (she is impressed with).
I’m pleased with our overall
progress,” Fanning said.

“It is the last third of the season
our time beginning to peak.‘

Wheel Kats lost in Invitational,
but their investment is in future

Contributing Writer

Last weekend the UK Wheel Kats
held the 12th annual Bluegrass Invi-
tational wheelchair basketball tour-
nament at the Seaton Center. The
three-day tournament is considered
the best of its kind in the world.

“This is, by far, the best collec-
tion of talent at one place at one
time in the whole world. This is the
best of the best," Woodard said of

The Wheel Kats (26-9) — ranked
32nd in the nation before the tour-

The Kats, down by 12 points with
seven minutes left, came back in the

27 year-old Steve Kane and 23
year-old Tim Maloney.

“We made some adjustments,”
UK coach Mike Woodard said. “Ba-
sically, we wanted it more than
(Denver) did."

The Kats, however, had little time
to savor the victory. They were
beaten a few hours later by top-
ranked Arkansas 82-52. The Rolling
Razorbacks beat Grand Rapids Pac-
ers Sunday in overtime, 67-66, to
take the championship.

“We are, by and far, not of the
talent level that (Arkansas) is,"
Woodard said.

Woodard, though, has been build-
ing the Wheel Kats into a potential
national powerhouse.

He has been coaching the Wheel
Kats for the past four years, and
holds a 68-22 record throughout the
past three years. When Woodard
first came to UK, in 1987, he “did it
all I did everything from sweep—
ing the gym to raising money to be-
ing a manager to a guidance counse-
