to implement
new check-out

Staff writer

Students checking out books from the Margaret 1. King Library recently
have been getting a taste of library nostalgia.

The library has scrapped its old circulation system and is checking out
books by hand as it prepares to install a new system next month.

“In some ways. it‘s a bit of nostalgia to remember how things used to be
done," said Judy Brown, head of circulation.

The new system. tailed NOTIS, should make it easier for the librarians
to keep up overdue books, according to Brown.

NOTIS, which is also the system used in the reference section, will be
similar to the previous LS 2000 system, which had been effect since 1985.
NOTlS, however, will provide better tracking information on borrowed


Most students will probably not even notice the change. Brown said.

“Students will still get overdue notices." she said.

Brown said the library had to disconnect the LS 2000 and check out
manually instead in order to transfer inventory to the new system.

Although the manual method takes more time. students have been very
understanding. says Kelli Stevens. a worker at the circulation desk.

“Most people have been pretty good." the psychology senior said.
“Some of them claim they didn‘t even know that we had computers be-


The library is also not allowing any holds or recalls until the change in
order to accurately update circulation on NOTIS. Brown said that has
caused inconvienence for some students.

Contributing Writer

If your plans for Saturday night
are looking bleak. consider the fol-
lowing advioe: “All people from
afar, dance under sun and stars."

That is the theme for Excelsior,
UK’s annual campuswide semi-
fonnal dance. which will be held
Saturday night at the Radisson Pla-

za Hotel.

Sponsored by Student (iovem-
ment Association, Excelsior origi-
nally was held in February 1989 as
a formal event designed to unite
students. alumni. faculty and staff
in an entertaining setting.

“T he whole idea of our slogan.
‘All people from afar. dance under
the stars‘ is to promote the idea of
every person on campus participat-

ing, not just one specific group.“
said Heather Hennel. general pub-
licity chair for the event.

“Wc'vc sent out fliers to donns.
visited all the various student organ-
izations —— everything we could
think of to get all groups involved."

Tickets for the dance are availa-
hle at Ticketmaster ()utlcts or at the
door for $15 for general admission
and $10 for students.

All proceeds go to the Excelsior
Scholarship Fund. in which a mi-
nority student will be awarded for
his or her financial need and aca-
demic capability. The recipient will
be chosen by a comtnittcc :uid will
be announced at a later date.

For the first time. an lixcclsior
postgame reception will be held af-
ter Saturday's basketball matchup
between the Wildcats and the West-

cm Kentucky Hilltoppcrs.

Ilenncl said the dance committcc
decided to add the postgamc party
so that ”people who don't wzmt to
go to the dzuicc can still come out
and show their support."

tainment for the reception. and tick-

CNN competes with networks
in quantity, but lacks quality

Cable News Network's coverage
of everything under the sun has eve-
ryone and his cousin drooling with
awe. From the Persian Gulf War to
the Clarence Thomas hearings, peo-
ple say that CNN leaves every other
news organization, including the
big three networks, in the proverbi-
al dust.

In addition to that, many critics
are writing that the success of CNN
makes the death of network evening
newscasts a foregone conclusion.
It's only a matter of time, “they"
say, until Dan Rather, Peter Jen-
nings and Tom Brokaw start host-
ing game shows.

i don't know if that‘s the case or
not. It’s true that ratings for the eve-
ning newscasts are down. It‘s true
that CNN's ratings are up. But rat-
ings and quality are not one and the

The growth of cable has a lot to
do with the ratings success for
CNN. Some people are busy during
the dinner hour and can’t catch the
networks. 50 CNN grows. But that
doesn‘t change one thing: CNN ~—
day in, day out — still isn’t as good
as the big three networks.

CNN has the quantity but not the
quality. Having to fill 24 hours with
programming each day all year long
means filling space even when
nothing newsworthy has happened.
Though Mario Cuomo is not a can-
didate for president, CNN (and oth-
ers, admittedly) loves to interview
him about his views on everything.

It means repeating things over
and over again. It means interview-
ing people of only medium intereSt
because no one else was available.
CNN is like an enormous computer,
spewing out talking heads, pseudo-
news babble, color-coordinated
computer graphics and commercials
all the live-long day.

The correspondents and anchors
on CNN, while tolerable, don’t
have the stature or experience that
their network counterparts do. Most
are adequate, of course, but few
really reach below the surface of a
news item or a guest. CNN just

doesn’t have names like Ted Kopv
pel, John Chancellor, Bill Moyers,
Charles Kuralt, David Brinkley,
Sam Donaldson, Morley Safer, etc.
Compare them to Wolf Blitzer.

CNN still doesn‘t have a daily
discussion program of the caliber of
ABC‘s “Nightline.”

For many, the end of the day
means tuning into “Nightline” just
to see what the topic will be. It may
be interesting, it may not be, but I
feel compelled to tune in. I don’t
want to miss what could be a dyna~
mite program that brings new per-
spective to an issue.

There’s nothing on CNN that
compels me to tune in. It’s filler —
stuff to flip through when there’s
nothing else to do. I don’t look for-
ward to anything on CNN. I don’t
make it a point to watch. Meaning-
ful shows would change that.

Nor does CNN have a weekly
public affairs panel show that
comes anywhere close to “This
Week with David Brinkley," “Face
the Nation," or “Meet the Press."
More often than not, CNN‘s panel
programs turn into shouting match-
es where out-yelling your opponent
becomes more important than mak-
ing a coherent argument.

Shows like “Crossfire" and “The
Capital Gang" are the joumalistic
equivalent of professional wres-
tling. Issues take a back seat to the
participants' egos.

CNN doesn’t even attempt to do
a probing investigative magazine
show in the style of “60 Minutes"
or “Prime Time Live." The latter
program, in the last few months es-
pecially, has evolved into one of the
best news shows on the air.

Insightful interviews with Hil-
lary Clinton, Oliver Stone, modem
day Nazis, and TV evangelists have

made “Prime Time Live" a must-
see show, just like “Nightline.”
CNN has nothing like it t and
that’s a serious omissiOn.

CNN has some good points. I am
a fan of the Larry King show, but
only when he has a guest I’m inter‘
ested in.

When there truly is some break-
ing news in the middle of the day
that the networks choose not to cm
er live, CNN can come in vet)
handy. But when the hie three are
providing coverage as well, I’ll turn
to one of them every time.

If you’re a political junkie, as I
am, you shouldn’t turn to CNN,
where too many journalists inter-
view other journalists about things
no one outside the beltway cares
about. I’ll turn to C-SPAN every
time, where 1 can see the actual
newsmakers talking without tons of
unnecessary analysis.

When everyone else is tuned to
CNN, 1 still find myself turning to
ABC, the home of the Brinkley
show, “Nightline,” and “Prime
Time Live.” For me, CNN will
have to improve drastically m or
the big three will have to radically
decline — for me to make the
switch to the television version of
USA Today.

Lady Kats fall 77 -54 to No. 4 Tennessee

Nearly 5,000 fans see
Vols win fifth-straight

The distance between the wom-
en‘s basketball programs at UK and
Tennessee is significantly more
than the 250 miles separating the

The Lady Vols (17-2 overall, 6~1
Southeastern Conference and
ranked No. 4 ) won their fifth con-

Compared to defending national
champion Tennessee, quicker,
bigger and stronger are the holes in
UK’s arsenal.


UK (12-10, 4-3) was given a les—
son in get-in-yourvface defense.

A slight moment after any UK
player received a pass, a woman in
orange was there to frantically
thrust and rotate waving hands in
her face.

“They’re gonna be in your face,"
Fanning said. “When you settle for
a bad pass, they're pressure is tak-
ing you mentally out of the game.”

The Kats were mentally removed

UT pounced quickly for an early
23-8 lead. Six of those points were
13pr off of steals.

The Lady Vols had 12 steals for
the game —— Peggy Evans forced
four with, well, force. The 6-foot
sophomore yanked three clutched


balls out of UK’s hands after the
Kats grabbed rebounds.

Fanning said the fans witnessed
the most consistent defense in the
country. Tennessee, she said, stands
for defense.

"There's no one that's been any
better this y,"ear she said. “There is
no one on our team that we can use
to simulate a Peggy Evans or Dana
Johnson. We don’t have ’em."

UK trailed 36-24 at halftime, but

UT burst out of

and outscored

UK 13-2. The

scored four

more points off

Cool Cats

The UK Cool Cats found out last
weekend that sometimes it can be
lonely at the top.

In last week‘s national poll, the
Cool Cats (18-2) retained their No.1
ranking in Division 11 club hockey.
UK also got the long-anticipated
bid to the Collegiate Club Hockey

March 13-15 in Chicago.

However, not all was peaches for
the Cool Cats last week, as Georgia

Signees give UK cool hand

Senior Staff Writer

UK football coach Bill Curry dis-
cussed his 1992 recruiting class at a
press conference in Wildcat Den
Friday as if he were holding four

Curry sat cool and calm, with his
pro football-worn body hunched
over a microphone. He addressed
the media confidently but he re-
mained humble showing no
signs of a poker face.

‘I didn't think we’d get some of
these guys.“ Curry said with smile
spread from wall to wall. “But
Tommy (Limbaugh), of course he
thinks he‘s gonna get everybody."

Early on, the big recruiting gurus
had UK's class being less than me-
diocre this year. But when Curry‘s
recruiting coordinator Tommy Lim-
baugh reeled in a couple of talented
junior college players — the gurus
changed their tune and called UK‘s
1991-92 class a possible “standout"

Most of the attention was geared
toward the five junior college
players who were signed in hopes
of having immediate impact at UK,
especially at the defensive line.

The two most-talked-about
players appeared to be a 270-pound
defensive lineman and a 6-foot-4
wide receiver from San Francisco.

The lineman has a name that al-
most guarantees greatness — Jim

The wide receiver,
Browning, has good speed.

Brown is from McKeespon,


Penn., and attended Hudson Valley
Community College in New York.
At Hudson Valley Brown's l6
quarterback sacks broke a school
record. He also played a big part
