the position will be worked out at

with an outside consultant. but I
want to see what the recommenda-

Wethington was vice president
for the community college system
iii I982 when. under then-President

was enacted.

president emeritus said the philoso-
phy behind having both vice presi-

He acknowledged that the decen-
trali/ed system could lead to some
duplication. “Some of it’s justifias

Wethington said the changes did
not create tnore bureaucracy. since
no new positions were added. only
job descriptions and titles were

Some member of the faculty have
said they think the administration
has grown. attd that the system of
vice presidents and chancellors
breeds duplication.

"I think it would be very hard to
see how you would make that
case." Wethington said. “No. I
don‘t agree."

But Wethington said that any
chtutges made now will be based on
what the University can be practi—
cally. more so than what it theoreti-
cally should be.

“this is a different kind of titne
thmi It) years ago." he said. "'I‘he
budget itself is reason for us to look
at the things we‘re doing."

Wethington will review the pro-
posals with the vice presidents and
chancellors. arid then begin making
decisions at the beginning of the
spring semester.

When Singletary came to UK in

1969. there was a provost position.
but Singletary made the position
into a vice president for academic
affairs. said Lewis Cochran. who
was provost from 1962 to I970. and
subsequently vice president until he
retired in I98l.

llowever. Cochran said his duties
as provost were not those of a typi-
cal chief academic officer.

(‘ochran said the ideal adminis-
trative model would be something
like the University of Tennessee‘s.
where the president d‘als primarily
with extental affairs — develop-
inetit and state goveminent. while
the provost is the “inside (the uni
\ersity) president,"

llemenway acknowledged talk of
a provost position but declined to
offer :ut opinion about it. “'I‘he real
issue is how do you organi/e the
adtninistrative structure and work
processes of the institution in such a
way that they are done efficiently.“
he said.

Peter Bosomworth. chzmcellor for
the Medical Center. said the domi-
nant system in the United States for
triedical centers is a chancellor and
vice president for health affairs

“’l‘here are a few instances of pro
vost and vice provost for health al-
fairs." he said.

He wouldn‘t say whether one per—
son in charge of all the academic at!
fairs and the UK Hospital would be
too much to ask of one person. “It
would depend on where the hospital
and the entire program fit in such
tut arrangement.“ he said.

“Whatever organization we have.
whether the same or a modified sys-
tem. I think one of the improve-
ments we cart make is to improve
the horimntal communications
along the academic uttits of the iii-
stitutioii. that is deans being able to
conununicate across the structure.”
Bosomworth said.

“That. in my opinion. is the tin—
derlying objective."

“’I‘hat kind of raises the expecta-
tions tutd the value of the property

The benefits of Habitat for Ho-
manity also can be less tangible.
said David Stockhzun. dean of stu-
dents and University adviser to the
student chapter.

Because families who receive
homes through Habitat are required
to work with volunteers during con-
struction — a process called “sweat

bands started hitting the national

there has been a brothers-in-anns
comradery that is rarely seen in the
often cutthroat entertainment

And it is becoming less of a rari-
ty that the Lexington music scene
gets together to create a synthesis
of their current music

Styen years ago. Splat Records
put out on vinyl tlte first documen—
tation of l exington music.

the popular Bigger Than You. a

"The owner of the Recordsmith

bum with Jeff Duncan.

"We get compilation (‘Ds all the
