About 70 people attended the celebration at noon

the celebration was about a person who gave his life
for equality and opportunity.

Senior Staff H 'riter

News reports of an abortion clinic bombing in
Atlanta yesterday reminded jan Harman that the
anniversary of Roe v. \Vade Supreme Court deci—
sion is next week.

“Everyjanuary we see an increase in these crazy
incidents,” said Harman, executive director of
Planned Parenthood. Seven other Planned Parent-
hood sites nationally were either car—bombed, fire-
bombed or shot at last year.

“This will be the 24th anniversary of Roe v.
Wade,” Harman said. “Why this is still going on is a
little beyond me.”

Atlanta police are looking for those responsible
for two explosions at an abortion clinic on Atlanta’s

panel discussion, organizers will show a video titled
“When Abortion Was Illegal: Untold Stories."

The memory of the Supreme Court decision is
important at Lexington’s Planned Parenthood,
where the possibili:y of violence “concerns us every—
day,” Harman sai . “It’s not something we ta e

Roughly 30 employees and volunteers are briefed
on internal security procedures. Harman said Work—
ers never leave or enter the building alone.

As executive director, Harman is responsible for
opening all mail sent to the building.

“I don’t think about it very often,” Harman said.
“I guess I’m an (optimist) about these things. I
believe that it can’t happen to me.”

But it’s not somethin she ever forgets.

On Wednesda , staff workers grew concerned
about a man they fiiund wandering through doctors‘
offices on the second floor of the city’s Planned Par—
enthood building on the corner of Jefferson and
West Second Street, Harman said.

They called Lexington police before the man left
the building. Although they sometimes refer
patients seeking an abortion to a Lexington doctor’s
office, and clinics in Louisville and Cincinnati, Har-
man said, Lexington’s Planned Parenthood doesn‘t
perform abortions.

“That makes no difference to these crazy peo—
ple,” she said. “Planned Parenthood does more to
reduce abortions than an other organization in this
country.” Her staff wor ers offer self-esteem and

>\Tl..\\"l‘:\ . Two bomb blasts an hour apart
rocked a building containing an abortion clinic

agents. rescue workers and a TV cameraman

“The second explosion is clearly designed to

said Mayor liill Campbell. “So we're dealing with
a warped mind here."

The explosions left the Atlanta .\'orthside l'am

tightened security at all other clinics in the city.

The first bomb went off at Will a.m. near the

abbreviated public hearings and a vote to punish

Televised hearings were not expected to begin

But the key to that loss, the Cats

Southeastern Conference; morr potent ofirense.

Rick Pitino professes to be only
“about 60 percent happy” with his
fifth—ranked Wildcats midway
through the season, but he has little
doubt his team is ea er to please.

“Before the ( eor 'a) game
(Tuesday), they were rising ques~
tions in the locker room,” Pitino
said. “Jared (Prickett) asked a ques-
tion about a specific out-of-bounds
play and I think Jamaal (Magloire)
asked something.

“I about fainted.”

\Vhile UK’s head coach nearly
needed smelling salt, his team got
the wake-up it needed in a loss to
Ole Miss last Saturday. After that
73-69 setback, the Cats (15-2 over—
all, 2-1 in the Southeastern Con-
ference) routed Georgia 86-65 on

And though the friendly fans,
familiar rims and 21 straight wins
of Rupp Arena will be a welcome
sight for UK when it takes on
Auburn tomorrow, you’ll forgive
the Tigers if the trek to Lexington
doesn’t make their list of favorite
road trips.

Auburn (l l -6, 2—2) hasn't won
in the Bluegrass since 1988, and
that win marked only its second all—
time triumph in Lexington.

With the Cats coming off their
dismantling of Georgia, AU Coach
Cliff Ellis doesn’t expect this to
game to be any easier than
Aubum’s previous 40 tries.

“They go to (Georgia’s) place
and virtually just manhandle ’em,”
Ellis said ofthe Cats. “\Ve take it to
Kentucky and they’re at home, and
(Derek) Anderson seems to be back

Anderson was anything but
healthy when UK took on Ole
Miss last weekend. His limited
appearance greatly contributed to

but complacency has a way of rear-
ing its head in Ru p Arena.

The key, U]? pla ers said, is
duplicating their roa focus — at
least, the road focus they showed
against Georgia —— in Rupp.

“What we need to do is treat the
home games sort of like road
games,” point guard Wayne Turn—
er said.

“We get too comfortable at
home. We need to not think about
the crowd and that kind of stuff and
just et out and play our game.”

hat’s been easier said than
done lately. UK’s 86-point show—
ing a inst Georgia broke a rare
stretc of two straight games in
which the Cats failed to clear 70.

If Ellis has his way, UK will get
the opportuniz to rim and gun.

“Some (SE ) teams are going to
play you deliberate, some are oing
to lay you up—tempo,” said His,
in '5 second season at AU.

“Our style, the way we play
most of the time, is an up—tempo
type game. We’ve had some delib-
erate games, but we prefer the up-
tempo game.”

And thou h with Anderson
healthy the ats should be more
than willing to indulge Ellis‘ tempo
hopes, UK would likely feel better
about running with a warmed-up
Ron Mercer.

The so homore entered last
week as a ong-shot player of the
year candidate, but began missing
all his long shots. The All-America
hopeful has hit just 8—of-35 shots
over the past two games.

“I’m in a little bit of a slump
right now, but I can’t let that worry
me,” Mercer said. “Auburn is a
good team, and we need to focus
on playin them, so that’s what I’m
gotng to o.”







Auburn plays a three-guard attack, led by point guard Wes Flanigan who knows
something about waging a winning fight. He was diagnosed with an aggressive
form of cancer that required surgery in the oilseason. But Fianigan is picking up
where he left off last season, when he led the SEC in assists. The Cats again
look to Anthony Epps and Derek Anderson. who continues to nurse a sore back.


The Tigers sport Ail—SEC center Pat Burke in the post. Similar to Tennessee‘s
attack last year, Auburn looks to Burke to anchor the middle as the Tigers
surround him with shooters. UK will counter with Jared Prickett and Scott Padgett
at power forward. with Nazr Mohammed and Jamaal Magloire platooning at
center. Ron Mercer looks xto make a strong run tor league MVP at the three.

The Wildcat bench has emerged as one of the nation‘s most dangerous. Allen
Edwards and Wayne Turner are called upon trequentiy to make significant contri-
butions and could easily be starting at many other Division i-A programs. The
Tigers look to Kentucky native Daymeon Fishback to anchor a weak bench.


Fishback was named Mr. Basketball in Kentucky last year, averaging 23.3 points
and 10.0 rebounds for Greenwood High. He lead his team to a berth in the Sweet
Sixteen. UK has a record of 68-16 against Auburn, including nine straight wins.

Seniors leaving with a splash

By 0. Jason Slapleton
Antwan! Spar-tr Editor

This Saturday seven members of the UK
swim team come full circle.

Their meet against the Clemson Tigers
will be the last for the senior strokers at the
[Tar 'J. Lancaster Aquatics Center.

T ose hard-core UK swimming fans
who shun the basketball game should be in
for a good match between the two teams.

“I think it Will be a real close meet. lt
should be very exciting,” said UK swim-
ming coach Gary Conelly. “If we’re going
to have a chance to beat them, we’re going
to have to swim real fast."

(Ionclly said the meet would probabl
come down to the final relay races for bot
the men and the women.

Clemson’s men’s team is currently
unrankcd while its women's squad resides
in the :thcreal “other teams receiving
votes" category.

The real focus will not be on the rank-
ings of the respective teams, but rather all
eyes will be focused on the Wildcat seniors.

The meet will begin with ceremonies
honoring UK’s graduating swimmers, then
kicks into high gear as the races get under-

The seniors are hesitantly looking for-
ward to their last meet here in Lexington.

“I’m kinda excited. This is a new begin-
ning for me," said distance freestyler, Mike
Thar. “But I’m also sad because I ve made a
lot of friends here and I know I Won’t ever
get to compete in this pool again.”

Price Atkinson, a native of Greenville,
S.C., is especially looking forward to the
meet because he knows many Clemson


“There’s nine people from my club team
that swim for them," Atkinson said. “So I’m
going to be pumped up just to want to beat

Atkinson’s family will be in the stands to
provide additional inspiration in his last
ever meet at UK.

Rick Barber, Tom Bate, Matt Brown and
Chris MCCabc round out the rest of the
senior class for the men, a roup that has
learned the true meaning 0 what is like to
be a part ofa team.

“All of those guys are real steady and real
team—oriented,” Conelly said. “They’ve ut
the team in front of a lot of things they
would rather do, but realized that they had
to sacrifice.”

Conelly also said the senior men have
provided great senior leadership for the
other members of the team, especially when
getting the others on the team fired up and
read for a meet.

'1 he women will only be losing one
member from its nationally ranked team.

Mandy Swift came in with a large fresh-
man class but is the only one left at the end
of her four-year career.

“Mandy’s the only one with the intesti-
nal fortitude to make it to the end of her
four years,” Conelly said.

Swift said her love for swimming made it
easy for her to com lete her tour of duty
here at UK. If the U women’s swim team
was a body, then Swift would be its heart.

“She epitomizes the character of the
women’s team," Conelly said. “She always
gives it a good shot, and she's had a lot to
do with the shaping of the character of that



Gym llats prep tor busy
weekend; Ewing injured

The UK G Cats kick off the weekend with a
meet against eorge Washington and Radford on
Friday night. But then it’s time to kick back and
play, as the Gym Kats (1—0) hold Excite Nite, their
annual theater—type exhibition on Sunday.

Though thousands of people are expected to
attend the event, one uestion will certainly weigh
on the minds of many flirts as the Kats storm Memo-
rial Coliseum.

thre’s Jenny?

Jenny Hansen, UK’s record-settin superstar,
exhausted her collegiate eligibili fast season,
thereby ending perhaps the most pro ific gymnastics
career in NCAA history. While in Lexington, she
single—handedly put the Gym Kat program on the
ma by winning an unprecedented three straight
N AA all—around titles.

But Leah Little, who is entering her 22nd year as
head coach of the nastics program, is optimistic
about her team’s c ances this season.

“The cherry, the whip cream is gone,” Little said
of losing Hansen. “Our number one goal for this
season is to prove to the world that we can be as
good or better without Jenny. People think we’re
done — we want people to know we’re a good

However, the team has gotten off on the wrong
foot, er, ankle this season. All-American Robin
Ewing injured her ankle against Ohio State last
week and is listed as questionable for tonight’s meet.

This year’s Excite Nite theme is “Flippin’ Down
to Toon Town.” In addition to the gymnasts’ per-

The data bases are an advantage for the library,

Cox said, because it is cheaper to
pay for access to the data bases
than subscribe to all the journals.

“The advantage we see to the
UnCover data base is that that's
seven to 8,000 more ioumals than
we have,” Cox said.

The data base also cuts down
on the workload for inter—library
loan while providing fax delivery
of complete articles not held by
UK within 24 to 36 hours. Inter-
library loan takes days.

Throwing out Saturdays and
Sundays, that’s nearly 190 parking
tickets issued on campus each day.

“This gives permit-holders a
better chance to find a parking
place.” Gary said.

UK officials designated the
new W'oodland lot for fraternities
and sororities to make up for
scores of spaces eaten by the con-
struction of the new library.

“Each (fraternity and sorority)
chapter has an allotment based on
safety and need," said Susan West,
UK assistant dean of students and
sorority adviser.

Greek members must live on
campus to be eligible for permits,
West said.
