Ex—Maranathans reveal
shortcomings of group

Kernel Staff Writer

Turn off the radio, tear up the
football tickets. cancel Friday
night's date: Maranatha has come
to UK.

Founded in Paducah in 1971 by
Bob Weiner, Maranatha is a
Christian group centered around
“the Lord, Jesus Christ."

But Maranatha is not an ordinary
church group; there are a lot of
‘do‘s’ and ‘don't’s.’ Eric Wright, a
student at Central Kentucky
Vocational and Technical State
School, defected from the group last
summer. Now that he is free, he
realizes exactly what the group was
doing to him.

“They (Maranatha) are dishonest
the way they present themselves,"
be said. “They call themselves a
ministry. but they are actually a

Wright. like most members,
joined Maranatha because he was
looking for a group in which he could
find fellowship.

Wright said that what bothered
him was that Maranatha was

creating an artificial family. “They
put men between people and God. If
you mentioned anything else besides
Maranatha, they frowned upon you.
It was worldly, they said. They
separate yourself from the world,
which is good, but you have to know
what is going on. If you don‘t, you de-
sensitise yourself. Maranatha is
really insensitive to people’s needs.

“In Maranatha,“ Wright said,
“we couldn’t listen to the radio. The
local sin station is 98 (WKQQ-FM). I
was really afraid to do anything."

But the radio is not the only
restriction that the members have.
They are discouraged to date and to
be involved in worldly things.
Wright said that Maranatha
members believe rock music is from
the devil and cancer is caused by
unforgiveness from God.

Members are also discouraged to
attend any other church. The
members are taught to think that
other teachings are unbalanced.

Group leaders, who are sup-
posedly closer to God, suggest the
right thing to do for the younger
members. If the younger members
go against the suggestions, they are

said to have fallen short to the devil.

Wright said he felt this kind of
pressure when he decided to leave
last summer. “When I left," he said,
“I felt my world open up again. It
was really emotional because I liked
the kids that were in the group. I just
didn't like the pressure."

Most of the emotional pressure is
applied by the leaders. Bob Martin,
who has been in the Maranatha
group since it began, is the UK
leader. He denied all the accusations
that were brought up against the
group. “Those accusations are lies
and rumors,” he said. “I’ll decide
whether the truth is slanted.”

Martin evaded every question that
dealt specifically with doctrines. He
said that the members can liken to
the radio if they want and that
dating is permitted. He even warned
against the validity of the Kernel. “I
know the Kernel has a way of
presenting the wrong side of the

UK leads in donations

The successful fund drive was a
result of good planning, said George
Hearn. UWB executive director.

“The campaign went well." he
said. “It was executed in a timely

manner and the preset objectives
were achieved.”

Fayette, Jessamine and Scott
counties tallied $1,310,442, an 18.5
percent increase over last year’s
total and $53572 better than the 1977

Students donations were em-
phasized this year, said history
junior Mike Mulhearn, director of
the student drive.

“We hit the residence halls harder

well. The Greeks always turn out, too.
Overall, there was a lot of en-
thusiasm," Mulhearn said.

Competition among residence
halls, fraternities and sororities, and
student organizations will culminate
with a certificate and recognition for

the group that raises the most
money per capita. Fundraising
activities included a dance at
Haggin Hall, a haunted house at
Boyd Hall, an aluminum can drive
at Kirwan Tower and a T-shirt sale
at the Complex.

UK's 3408 contributors gave
$97,103 last year, according to
United Way figures. Fundraising for
this year’s drive began in September,
said Placement Service Director
Jim Alcorn, chairman of the UK
fund drive.

He anticipates that funds will
continue to come in until the Jan. 1
cutoff date. Money received after
Jan 1. will be counted toward next
year’s drive.

Senior experience the key in 110-86 win over SMU

Sports Editor

The UK basketball team's senior
class, even with James Lee
noticeably absent, took charge early
against Southern Methodist in
Saturday night‘s 110-86 season-
opening win.

In the first half, Jack Givens, Rick
Robey and Mike Phillips had seven
rebounds apiece, while Givens and
Robey scored 18 and 16 points,

Although the outcome was never
in doubt, the 42-point lead built by
the starters was almost sliced in half
in the last three minutes as the
Wildcats finished the game with four
freshmen on the floor.

Between the three of them. Givens,

Robey and Phillips accumulated 75
points and 44 rebounds for the game.
Both Robey and Phillips looked much
quicker than they did last year,
according to UK Coach Joe Hall.
They ale showed they could work
much better together on offense
during the games after practicing on
the same unit in practice.

“Jack‘s got a bad shoulder that
caused him a lot of pain,” Hall
added. “Thank goodness it was his
right arm."

Even without Lee's patented
drives to the hoop, Givens and the
two 6-10 seniors joined the rest of the
team in arousing enough noise to
indicate that the Rupp Arena crowd
is finally comfortable in the 23,000
seat house.

Givens. despite playing with that

strange shoulder injury suffered in
the exhibition game against the
Russians, ignored the inconvenience
and crashed the boards with
relentless authority.

Many of his points came on tip-ins
as he passed Johnny Cox, Pat Riley
and Cliff Hagan to move into eighth
place on the all-time UK scoring list.
One of those follow shots almost flew
over the backboard before settling
back into the basket. On another
occasion, be practically reached
behind his back for the ball and
deftly drove it home.

“I didn‘t know anything about it,"
Givens said when asked how it felt to
move up on the UK scoring list. “I'm
just happy to be in the record books.

“They ( the SMU defense) weren’t
blocking out; that made it a lot

easier for us. I'm surprised we did
as well as we did without James and
LaVon (Williams)."

When asked if he would have any
special advice for the freshmen
during the eight days of practice for
Indiana, Givens said he understood
their plight. Three years ago, he
knew what it was like to be a fresh-
man playing on a senior-dominated

“The freshmen need to keep their
heads up and not get down." Givens
said. “It‘s new for them. I wish they
didn't get outscored. They‘ve been
working real hard.“

Robey was also sympathetic with
the freshmen, despite their rapid
collapse. “The freshmen learned a
lot,“ he said, also remembering the
games when he made mistakes with

the 1974-75 NCAA finalists.

“They can look at the film, learn
to block off and work on their
mistakes. We can spend a week and
a half together. They had to have
had the jitters before 23,000 people. I
remember my first game here last
year. As a junior I even had the

The 23 points scored by Robey
came on eight field goals in 13 at-
tempts and seven free throws without
a miss.

“The game as a whole was a
success for us. Our offense is geared
to letting forwards handle the ball,"
he said. “If you faked them up, you
could go around them.“

Robey also explained how he and
Phillips have become the demolition
duo on offense Kentucky fans have

long awaited. “Mike and I have had
a chance to work together. We've
been going against people our own
size for a change."

It's true that SMU did not have the
size to cope with UK's inside
strength. But when the Wildcats
have to face Bobby Knight‘s
Hoosiers one week from today. they
will have even more of it with the
return of James Lee and LaVon

And, eventually. sophomore Jay
Shidler will return to add some
depth to the already competitive
guard position. So if anyone thinks
the 109—75 rout of the Russians and
Saturday's breather against SMU
were impressive. there‘s more to
come in the games ahead.

It appears that what PBS has
become is a very inexpensive way to
do institutional advertising to a
group with premium demographics:
high income, high status, high
educational types who’ve been bored

it any more.

Advertising on non-commercial
TV is very cheap. Not only is there
no profit, but taxpayers and in-
dividual small donors pay 99 percent
of the freight. Then a company like
Mobil can move in for a couple of
hundred grand and get the credit.

To ask ourselves

We might ask ourselves what’s the
reason for non-commercial TV’s
existence? Is it only to get ads off the
air? Even in this, non-commercial
TV hasn't been altogether suc-
cessful. Have you noticed the
amount of promotional clutter on
PBS stations? The gaps for com-
mercials that don’t exactly sell
anything, but try to get you to make
an offering above your taxes, so that
Mobil can enjoy a yet cheaper ad-
vertising vehicle.

There are all kinds of goodies on
non-commercial TV. Even a series
like Best of Families which would
have been better named White Roots
is, in historical accuracy, superior to
the black Roots from which it

But if programs like Visions and
Nova often have first-rate in-
stallments, PBS still emits the odor
of commercialism and commercial
control. p

The arrival of Dick Cavett serves
as this program year's best
example. What is pleasant, vapid
Mr. Cavett doing on the air with his
chain of second-rank celebs who
aren’t quite right for Carson? His
program failed in commercial
television not because it was bold, or
new or innovative or any of those
words, but because it was dull.

The Carter Administration has
asked Congress for a large increase
in non-commercial TV ap-
propriations. Let this be done, but
with the proviso that Mobil and the
rest of the oil altruists clear out.

Corporate America already runs
three networks. That should suffice.

Censorship arrives

With new ’community’ standard,
only the ordinance is obscene

A sign was placed in the window of a book and
magazine store near campus next week. Persons
under 18 may not enter without parent or
guardian, it warned. By way of explanation, the
smaller print below allowed that persons in the
“community” might find some of the mer-
chandise objectionable.

What that sign also warned of is that. official,
overt censorship has come to Lexington. A new
ordinance passed Nov. 3 by the Urban County
Council (dramatically before election day) was
first enforced last week, according to local
police. '

The regulation’s direct focus forbids persons to
sell knowingly to minors or publicly display
explicit material in print or in film, “unless such
material has artistic, literary, historical,
scientific, medical, educational or other similar
social value for adults and access to such
material is limited to adults.”

There are lots of hoary old arguments against
the dangers of censorship in any form, and they
have merit. Banning obscenity could lead to
banning dissent with any “community stan-
dards,” be they esthetic, political or religious.
Also, a climate of censorship stifles freedom of
expression and new ideas, and violates First
Amendment guarantees of the freedom of

In response to Tom Padgett’s
remarks concerning the over-
crowding of busses (Kernel , Nov.

but rather a problem of human

Just imagine the incredible
number of sad conditions that Mr.
Padgett has explained. I mean, it’s
mind-boggling. The elevators in the
Office Tower aren‘t crowded
because too many pe0ple want to use
them at 10 till each hour of the week;
they should be more patient and wait
for a later elevator.

And campus parking lots aren’t
overcrowded because there are too
many cars; people should be more
patient and either arrive earlier or
wait until a space is vacated.

Football and basketball tickets?
They're not in short supply because
too many students want to see the

Of course Lexington‘s traffic

motorists on the streets at 8:30 and
