iiii ted by the UK dean of

said Dean of Students J0seph Burch.

The investigation had begun when
rumors said StudenttSi had obtained
a key that allowed access to an of-
fice in the Office Tower. where they
had stolen a copy of a statistics final
exam. At least twenty students have
been charged with cheating in that

However. Burch said the key
could have been duplicated before
being returned. “If it was. it doesn‘t
mean a whole lot to get the key

“Generally. most places won‘t du-
plicate keys like that. not to say that
some places won‘t." Burch said.

Skiba said he didn‘t think the po-
lice would catch Tuesday night‘s

“There's really nothing that we
can do. We've been involved in talk»
ing with the dean of students office
and talking with some of the people

involved." but as far as tracking
down who turned this key in. there's
really nothing the police can do
right now. Skiba said.

Burch said criminal charges
would probably be filed in the case.
along with charges of violating the
student code.

There is “no way of knowing" how
the culprittsi obtained the kev. or
why they suddenly decided to turn it
in. Burch said. But it‘s “possible
that people were aware of the fact
that if they were caught with a key
like that. they could be prosecuted."

Burch said the investigation into
the affair would continue. “We have
suspicions. we have suspects, we
have leads." he said.

charges of cheating on last semes-
ter‘s final exam in STA 291. Statisti-

going to be left vacant this year.
Chapman said. But in one case. a
position up for renewal was frozen.

Dale Warren. assistant band di-
rector. was facing an unrenewed
contract for the next academic year
because of budget cuts before alter-
nate funding was allotted. “I would
say that (not renewing a contract
with someone who would normally
be returningi is a rare case.” (‘haps
man said.

“Anybody that would be in a ten-
ure track position. we are not re-
leasing.“ he said.

Warren was not in a tenure track
position. but his position was
deemed a necessity by members of
the UK Marching Band at a forum
held in March by Alan Hersch. di-
rector of the School of Music,

Cyndi Weaver. newly elected Stu.
dent Government Association. and
John Menkhaus. former fine arts
senator. took the case to President
Otis A. Singletary. who allotted $10..
000 from his discretionary fund. Sin-
gletary and Athletics Director Cliff
Hagan arranged for another 310.000
to fund the position from UK athletr
ics. Weaver said.

Gallaher understands the need the
marching band has for an aSSlStant

director. but said other departments
are in need. too.

“Any unit on campus can make
the same argument the School of
Music made over the assistant band
director position." he said.

Gallaher also said he realizes that
the quality of UK departments are
suffering because of budget short~
falls in the past and those predicted
for the future.

"The only way ta budget cuti
doesn't hurt your quality is if you're
overstaffed. We are not over-
staffed." Gallaher said.

The only way the situation can be
improved is for the state to increase
its economic growth. he said, “We
get 42 percent of our budget from
the state that's the problem
part “

With a $420 million budget. that‘s
$176.4(X).()00 from the state.

“Given the fact that the (state)
constitution calls for a balanced
budget at the end of the fiscal year.
the governor has no choice but to
cut back.“ Gallaher said.

Edward Carter. acting vice presi-
dent for administration. said there
are three ways the state can avoid a
revenue shortfall.

The first solution is “normal eco-
nomic growth." Carter said. The
second would be to increase the rev-
enue base. which would mean higher
taxes. And the third way would be to
reallocate existing funds, “for ex-
ample. giving more money to
schools and less to state prisons."

But, he said. more money could be
generated for the upcoming year
through the adoption of federal tax

"The state has not adopted the
new federal tax code. so if the state
adopts the tax provisions that the
federal government has set down.
there would be an increase in state
revenue." he said. About $110 mil-
lion to $160 million would be gener-

"You‘re then faced with another
problem and that's what they'll do
with the new revenue." Carter said.

“The i'niversity competes with
other needs in this state.“ Gallaher

21-year-old drinking in dorm
put on hold; UK remains dry

Assistant News Editor

UK stepped closer to implement-
ing a campuswide drug and alcohol
policy Monday as the chancellor for
the Lexington campus approved five
of six recommendations made by a
committee iii February

In a three-page memorandum re-
sponding to the alcohol policy com-
mittee's recommendations. Art (lat
laher agreed to begin pursuing a
drug and alcohol education program
that would be run by the \'l(‘(’ chan-
cellor for student affairs‘ office.

Gallaher also agreed to appoint a
drug and alcohol task force and
commit the t'iiiversity to finding
ways to promote activities that
would draw students away from

The only exception came with al
lowing 2iycarold students to drink

sport without exerting extra energy

The equipment for beginners also

he said. “is the wind direction.
That's what windsurfing is — the
study of wind." He said the wind
should be at the student's back in
order to hit the sail at the correct
angle and thereby propel the wind»
surfer along the water.

Next Weller explains the student's
position on the board, and how to
control sailing the windsurfer.

"The person should stand side«
ways on the board's center. always
keeping the shoulders parallel to the
board with feet slightly more than
shoulder-width apart.“ The hands
should hold the boom about two feet
apart from each other.

Steering is simple. “Move the sail
and mast with the boom either for»
ward or backward, depending on the
desired direction." Weller said. To
increase speed. he said to pull the
sail in toward the board, and to slow
down. extend the sail away from the

sembles a windsurfing simulator

of the board,” Weller said, “acting
like shock absorbers.“

Practicing with the simulator al-
lows the student to learn how to turn
the board with the sail lying down in
the water, with it up in the air and
how to control it to sail.

“The simulator does the same as
a regular windsurfer in the water,"
Weller said. “and is..a much easier
way to learn to sail the board."

The student isn‘t the only wind-
surfer out on the water when learn-
ing; Weller also rides his own wind-
surfer to better observe and instruct
the student.

He said that once a beginner is
qualified in windsurfing skills, he
then may rent a windsurfer from
The Dive Shop at $10 an hour. If the
person seriously considers taking up
the sport, then he may purchase a
windsurfer, with sail and mast in-
cluded, for $595 (priced at The Lex-
ington Dive Shop). A wet suit can
also be purchased for $398.

Due to the community‘s growing
interest in windsurfing, Weller hopes
to organize a windsurfing club.


ment tapes capture


lighter side of R.E.M.

Arts Editor

Dead Letter Office/B-Sides Com‘
piled R.E.M./I.R.S. Records

For every R.E.M. fan who hangs
on every apocalyptic word uttered
by Michael Stipe, there comes a col-
lection of outtakes and covers that
no one could possibly mistake for di-
vine inspiration, much less serious-

Instead, Dead Letter Office sports
fifteen experimental session tracks
that are as fun (if not as skillful) as
anything R.E.M. has issued.

Rather than having bootleggers
score big with these session tapes at
a 300 percent markup, I.R.S. has re-
leased it nationally at a nominal
cost. Thus the fan gets the inside
track at the outside price.

The material varies about as
much as the styles of the original
artists. To keep you on track, guitar-
ist Peter Buck gives a running com-
mentary on the record sleeve of why
each song has been buried until now.
His remarks are almost as fun as
the album itself .

He divides the album into three
categories: badly written songs,
drunken jokes and occasional worth-
while songs that didn’t fit the feel of
previous album concepts. The prod-
uct is a collection of singles which
Buck praises for their “ultimate
shoddiness . ’ ‘

Three Velvet Undergound covers
(“There She Goes Again,” “Pale
Blue Eyes" and “Femme Fatale")
surface here, recorded on a two
track with heavy acoustic strum-
ming. Paying homage to the VU
isn’t easy, and Stipe pulls it off with
cool vocals backed by Buck’s and
Mike Mill’s tight playing.

Compare this to their rendering of
Aerosmith‘s “Toys In the Attic."
Buck’s liner note justifies the song
with, “If you grew up in the seven-
ties you liked Aerosmith." Be that
as it may, the effect is about the
same as it was the first time
around. Take that anyway you want.

“Burning Hell“ and “Windout”
are decidedly post-punk stomps that
find Buck bleeding his guitar for all
the savagery it can produce. “Wind-
out“ appeared last year on the
Fleshtone‘s “Speed Connection II”
with Buck accompanying on guitar.
Now that was drunken.

“Voice of Harold” is the backing
track to “Seven Chinese Brothers"

I. fight”


am»; -

It“ liilil littlit




Peter Buck divides the
album into three
categories: badly
written songs, drunken
jokes and occasional
worthwhile songs that
didn’t fit the feel of
previous album

with “extemporaneous lyrics added
by Michael in one take.“ The story
is a comic look at a gospel singing
group, the Reveleers, who long for a
recording contract. Make of it what
you will: “Montgomery gives a spe—
cial interpretation to the grand old
hymn, ‘The Old Rugged Cross'/Chill
bumps appear and I am frozen in
the web they weave as they reveal
their innermost selves with the out-
pouring of their hearts This
album can be the instrument to
mend a broken heart/Or to straight-
en out your life through the sincere
testimony in the songs of the Rev-
eleers/A must."

“Ages of You“ and “Burning
Down" have all of the gargled vo-
cals and jangling guitar solos that
are vintage Reckoning.

Dead Letter Office winds out with
a drunken cover-~-oD-“King of- (the
Road." Bucks comment: "Roger,
Miller should be able to sue for what
we did to this song." And it‘s true,
you can hear more background
stumbling and tripping over amps
than actual playing and singing.
But, hey,it‘sR.E.M.

 U.S. suspects Libya of attempting
to build short-range guided missile

Associated Press

WASHINGTON .E. American intelv
ligence agencies believe Libya may
be attempting to build a short-range
guided missile to add to its military
arsenal, administration officials said

The officials. who agreed to dis-
cuss the matter only if not identi-
fied. said there was no reason to be»
lieve such a missile ever could be
equipped by Libya to carry a nucle-

But the sources added that the
United States was concerned none-
theless because intelligence officials
did not believe Libya could produce
such a weapon on its own.

ABC television. quoting unidenti-

fied officials. reported Tuesday that
Libya was ready to conduct its first
flight test of the new missile and
that it apparently had been built
with the assistance of unidentified
West German companies.

Meanwhile, NBC said evidence
that could link ! itya to several ter-
rorist attacks in Europe was found
when Chadian troops pushed back
Libyan forces in northern Chad last

NBC Nightly News. quoting U.S.
intelligence sources. said Soviet-
made hand grenades left behind by
the Libyan troops bore the same fac-
tory markings and lot numbers as
grenades recovered from five ter—
rorist incidents

The report identified those inci-
dents as the attacks on the Vienna

and Rome airports in December.
1985'. on a Paris cafe in September.
1985, and on an officers' club in Tur-
key last year; and the hijacking of
an Air Egypt plane to Malta in No
vember. 1985.

()n the Libyan missile effort. ad
ministration officials contacted
Tuesday acknowledged there was
some suspicion that at least one
West German firm might have been
involved. but they stressed there
was no conclusive proof of that

ABC quoted its sources as saying
the new missile was believed to
have a range of roughly 300 miles
and might be flight-tested soon at an
air base near the central Libyan
town of Sabhah.

Channel] claims North acted
as co-conspirator in Irangate

Associated Press

WASHINGTON Conservative
activist Carl R. “Spitz" Channell
pointed to former White House aide
Oliver North as a fellow conspirator
yesterday as he pleaded guilty to the
first criminal charge of the Iran»
contra affair.

Channell was formally accused of
defrauding the government by tellv
ing contributors to his National En-
dowment for the Preservation of
Liberty that their gifts would be tax
deductible even though the money
actually was used to provide mlll‘
tary aid to the U.S.—backed contra
rebels in Nicaragua.

Channell pleaded guilty to a Single

FRANKFORT (AP) ~ Several
blind vendors who operate under
a state subsidy program picketed
offices in the capital yesterday to
protest what they say is state in»
terference with their businesses.

“They want to keep is in our
rightful place." said Dennis
Franklin. who operates a vending
stand at the post office in Louis-

The protest was sparked by a
decision from the Department for
the Blind to force the operator of
the stand at the Hall of Justice in
Louisville to take on a partner.

Russ Sanford. who operates the
stand at the courts building. said
he was forced to take on a part-

cess of the business. As a result.
he has had to let go of a sighted

deterring theft.

Linda Horton. the assistant sec-

department is a part. said the
disagreement boils down to a dif-
ference in philosophy.

The department provides space
for the vending operation. buys
the initial stock and buys and
maintains the equipment. In re
turn. the vendors pay the state to
percent of their net profits.

Horton said it is understand-

much money as they can but they
forget they are operating under a
public subsidy

“Do we give them a business or
do we provide employment op-

portunities to blind people"" Hon
ton asked.

Franklin. who is chairman of
the vendors‘ committee. said the
group also had other complaints
about the department

Franklin said agency employ»
ees spend too much time bother-
ing vendors and not enough time
opemng other outlets so more
blind people can be hired

Sam Serraglio. the director of
support services for the depart
ment, acknowledged that only
