Speaker says America
in spiritual awakening

By cums sx APP
Contributing Writer

The Rev. Bruce Nieli. the first
speaker in the Newman Center‘s
1987-88 Distinguished Speaker Pro-
gram. said Tuesday night that
America is “on the eve of a new spi-
ritual awakening."

He focused his lecture on two
trends evident from data collected
by polling expert George Gallup.

Nieli said Americans have devel-
oped "a renewed search for depth in
our spiritual lives and an interest in
deeper personal relationships.“

Americans are a people struggling
for a sense of belonging. and the
church can fulfill that need, he said.

The “new awakening" will pull us
together as a people. Nieli said.

People are realizing the need to
seek guidance from a spiritual con-
tact. In addition. everyone has a
mystical need for unity in their lives
and many people will turn to the
church because it can provide both.
Nieli said.

However. a member of the audi-
ence said the importance of the indi-
vidual in the Church isn‘t recog-

“The Catholic church under-
emphasizes the role of individuals in
spirituality.“ said Jim Ford. a mem-
ber of the audience. “It is true that
a person can find strength and hope
within the church. but complete hap—
piness is impossible without having
knowledge of one‘s self. and I think
the church does not stress that indi-
vidual happiness enough. “

According to Nieli. religion affects

beautiful because we
accept everybody. You

Nieli said that the first person to
predict America in the 150th was an-
other saint. “St. Thomas Moore
wrote about it in a book called
Utopia. He said in that book that
such a land of liberty and justice for
all. with a six~hour working day. of
freedom to think and reflect would
be found indeed in the newly discov-
ered lands of the new world."

Nieli said he felt Catholics were no
better or no worse than any other
religion. but “Catholicism is beauti~
ful because we accept everybody.

have Mother Teresa of Calcutta and
we have Madonna . "

During the question and answer
session after the speech. Nieli re-
sponded to a question about women
and the priesthood.

"Catholic priests are indeed a
dwindling breed. 1 can't really say
what direction the church will take
(regarding women in the pries-
thood). only to say that I believe
God will provide us with an an-
swer.“ Nieli said.

Asked to interpret his present po-
sition as director of the Office of
Evangelization. Diocese of Austin.
Nieli said. “We help people fall in
love with Christ, that‘s what the
term evangelization means."

Nieli was ordained a Catholic
priest in the Paulist Fathers Com-
munity in New York City in ltfls. He
holds a Masters Degree in Pastoral
Counseling from lona (‘ollege in
New Rochelle. NY

She plans to speak to the crowd on
the importance of prayer and to ex-
plain that Americans should inform
their congrsssmen that the POW.
issue should take precedence over
all others in the next election.

The recognition weekend almost
didn‘t come about.

The biggest obstacle was when the
risk management division of the
parks and recreation department in-
formed him Sept. 23 that he had to
come up with a $10 million insur-
ance policy by Sept. 25.

"They gave me a 48-hour period of
time to come up with a $10 million
policy. knowing full well that I could
not find an insurance company that
would write a $10 million policy."
Mullen said. “Knowing full well that
if I was lucky enough to find a com-
pany that would do it. they would
not do it in a 48-hour period of time.

“And also knowing full well that if
I was lucky enough to accomplish
the first two tasks. that there was no
way I could come up with 3150.000 in
48 hours to pay for the premium."
he said.

James Seymour. the risk analyst

for the risk management division.
said that the figures were based on
the number of people they are ex-
peeling at the event.

“If you evaluate the risk exposure
on 100.000 people. it's substantial."
Seymour said.

After Mullen went to the Lexing-
ton Herald-Leader with his plea for
fairness. Lexington Mayor Scotty
Baesler decreased the required in-
surance policy to $5 million

Although Mullen said that a $5
million policy is still extremely high.
he finally found a company to sup-
port them.

Proceeds from the event will go
toward a half-way house for lasting-
ton vets. an emergency food bank. a
statewide education program. and
funding for the State Vietnam Vctcr-
an‘s Memorial in Frankfort.

North side being discriminated against

My freshman year I lived on the
south side of campus. People there
were fairly friendly and the general
atmosphere was OK, but I quickly
learned that north campis was the
place to be. Facilities were not nec-
essarily equal to those on the south
side. but they were comparable.
More importantly, it was a more
closely knit community on the north

Last year l was fortunate and got
into Keeneland Hall which is lo—
cated on the north side of campus. I!
was still a close community and still
had its facilities. However, late in
the fall semester things began to

This year we were really hit b\ a

turned to campus. More parking me—
ters had mysteriously appeared on
South Limestone Street. Our tennis
courts are completely gone. Our
good cafeteria is gone and we‘re left
with a greedy. purely profitoriented
excuse for a cafeteria in its place.

()K, enough gripes. Let‘s stop and
count our blessings, north campus.

1. We have the Memorial coliseum
pool, which is open at a time when
many students are still in class. By

the way. south campus is getting a
new pool. Howodd!

2. We have one student parking
lot. much of which is occupied by

3. We have a larger impound lot
instead of tennis courts. We‘re all
grateful for a place to store our cars
because we didn‘t want to carry our
weekend luggage all the way across
campis. Didn't south campus get a
new tennis facility just last year?

4. We have dusty Alumni gym in a
state of ill-kept disrepair.

5. We have a so-called conve-
nience store with prices that are so
high it’s cheaper to drive to Krog-
ers. Unfortunately many students
don’t have access to a car.

6. We have an expensive cafeteria.

7. We have higher tuition pay-
ments and fewer reasons to pay it.

8. Oh, yes, north campus, let's not
forget the wonderful opportunity we
have to keep in shape as we walk
south to Donovan Hall to feed our
growing stomachs.

It‘s time this University got out of
its present “to hell with students“
attitude. Maybe UK should spend
more time listening to its students
and less time making up weak ex-
cuses. We pay an awful lot of money
for the little we get.

And UK wants to raise tuition
again? HA!

behind the drum kit) in a buffalo

Country Dick
then swaggered
to the front of the
stage to lead the
crowd in a
version of Kenny
“Lucille" that was more vehement
in its insults of the “two-timing
bitch. " The crowd then joined in a
sing-along with Dick in “Happy
Boy.“ in which he mourns the loss of
his dog. who is now a road mat. The
song was performed as on the album
with kazoos and Raney gargling into
3 mike.

The band showed its musical
diversity by covering tunes ranging
from Tom Waits' “Rosie“ to The
Kinks' "20th Century Man" to
Springsteen's “Reason To Believe.“

Harris introduced “Texas“ as
“another redneck song" where-
“you‘re bound to hear it anyhow,
about the boys that love those cows“
and where “you can find a girl
anyday. but all the pretty ones have
