ll. Senate postpones grade vote

By Kathy Railing
.‘V' ",r Editor

On Monday, the University Senate passed a
motion that all UK under aduates will be graded on
the same system, giving t e Senate throu h the fall
semester to decide what that system shoul be.

At the meeting, a paper ballot was cast by all vot-
ing members in which they ranked their top two of
seven grade plans circulated before the meeting.

The top two vote receivers, systems in which
plus/minus does not contribute to students’ GPAs,
were to be examined during the April 28 meeting,
but the agenda will be tlelayed unitil next fall because
Gov. Paul Patton will address the Senate during its
final spring tneeting.

“(Patton's visit has) kind of wiped out our plans
for the 28th," said Senate Chairwoman jan Schach.
“Unfortunately now we're going to have to wait for
the fall."

Patton will speak for 15 to 20 minutes about high-
er education reform and then will answer questions
from the audience. Schach said this format will keep
the meeting similar to when UK President Charles
\Vethington addressed the Senate last month.

ed to the two with the most votes.

“That wasn't really a ballot; that was more of '.l
poll," Schach said. “If there were two absolute clear
winners, we were going to decide from those."

She said a decision would be made when grading


Two other 0 itions, a system
with an A plus valued at a 4.3 GPA
and the plus/minus currently in
place in several colleges, received
about half the votes of the GPA
neutral and no plus/minus systems.

Stacy McCarthy, Arts and Sci-
ences senator, said all 15 student
senators talked before the meeting
and decided to vote for either the
neutral or no plus/minus options.

“lt wasn't a straw poll," 'l‘omblyn
said. “It should be between those top

All student senators voted at the
meeting, a turnaround frotii three
semesters ago when few attended the
University Senate meeting that
adopted plus/minus grading scale for

Michael Tomblyn, graduate school senator, said
sotne faculty on the council must agree with the twu

Committee ilratts changes
in universitywide policies

By Mat Herron

Feature; Editor

A University committee draft-
ed a memorandum outlining six
recommendations for policies it
says warrant attention.

The recommendations,
approved on Monday b the Uni-
versity Senate ad hoc ommittee
on the Status of Women (CSW),
were divided into two groups ——
those “needing immediate atten-
tion” and those “needing atten-
tion as soon as readily possible.”

Listed in the contents were
proposals regarding staff mater-
nity leave, cutbacks, expansion of
the academic ombud's role,
0 portunity hires, restructuring
ofthe Equal Opportunity Panel
(EOP) and data gathering.

Joan Callahan, philosophy
professor and ad hoc committee
chairwoman, said the CSW sent
its staff maternity leave proposal
to the Benefits Committee and
the data gathering and dissemi-
nation to the Lexington Campus
Office of Planning and Assess-

All recommendations were
sent to the University Senate and
the BOP.

Somfi professors and staff
or e t e materni leave li
£qu violates Title VII 5f) :1th


1964 Civil Rights Act because,
according to the report, it “treats
women affected by pregnancy,
childbirth or related medical
conditions differently than per-
sons not so affected but similar in
their ability or inability to work.”

The report included the study
of benchmark institutions con-
ducted by Shannon Price, which
uncovered several laissez-faire
maternity leave policies. Among
the institutions Price studied
were Universi of North Caroli-
na ——- Chapel lill, Indiana Uni-
versity and University of Mis-

CSW committee members
recommended that the leave pol-
icy read, “Disabilities caused or
contributed to by pre ancy,
miscarriage, abortion, childbirth
and recovery there from shall be,
for all job—related purposes, tem-
porary disabilities and shall be
treated the same as any other off-
the-job illness ..."

T. Lynn Williamson, associate
director for Human Resources
said the doctor decides how
much time the staff member
should take off, and UK has no
specific policy for maternity
leave. Theprovisions are listed
under sick leave.

“A female will be given off
whatever time the doctor says she



is disabled as a result of child-
birth,” Williamson said. “The
concept of the six weeks is a con-
cept of convenience. It is not any
concept of concreteness at all.

“I unequivocally deny that the
University is in violation of any
federal law.”

En lish department Chairman
Davi Durant said UK needs a
formalized policy for faculty and

With the current olicy, he
said, “It makes it loaf as if the
University is doin you a favor.
There's no reason For that.”

Also discussed in the recom-
mendation were the duties of the
UK academic ombud.

The committee said the duties
must be expanded so he or she
fields faculty and staff as well as
students’ complaints, and the
title of the position be changed to
University Ombud.

“The aim here,” according to
the recommendation, “is to solve
problems informally, before they
reach the level requiring formal
procedures or lawsuits.”

The fourth recommendation
suggested that, for the next five
years, UK and the BOP concen-
trate on hiring more women fac-
ulty and men from various
minori on s with “recurrin
fiands,"tt).,hgrconlimittee said. 3

That is the case on UK's soft‘
ball team. Because this is the first
\ car the \Vildcats have ptit a soft-
ball team on the field it is corti—
prised mostly of freshmen. ‘

Lori llorner, a junior transfer
from Fastern Kentucky L'niversi‘
tt'. is the only player to have previ»
otis NCAA l)ivision I experience.

“She has really been very heIp‘
ltll .is far as her leadership," said
l K head coach Beth Kirchner.

“She's not .i really big talker,
but she leads by example very

Kirchner is quick to praise
Ilorner on her tnany areas in
which she excels.

“She has a great maturity level
and she has obviously been hitting
very well for us as of late,” Kirchn»
er said. “She's done a good job
pitching for us as well and has jtist
been a very good stabiliying force
for us."

llorner was a late transfer to
L'K, but she was welcomed With
open arms.

“\l'e were very excited that she
was going to transfer,” Kirchner

“\Ve had never seen her play
prior to otirJanuary practices, so
we didn't really know what we had
until she got here."

The team is glad to have her
because she has played an integral
part in its lineup.

Homer is currently leading the

team in runs batted in with 10 and
is third on the team in batting with
a .242 average.

()ne of the reasons she is so
important to the team is her versa-
tility. llorner has been pitching
and playing first base all season.

“\Vith all the injuries that we
have had, her versatility has been
very helpful,” Kirchner said. “The
fact that she can hit and play first
and hit iii the five hole it's just a
great package."

llorner decided to come to UK
because she didn‘t see things “eye-
to-cye" with her fortiier coach at
Iiastern Kentucky

“I'm a lot more comfortable
with (ioach (Kirchner)." Ilorner

“I feel a lot more free to ask her
questions and I’ll get an explana—
tion from her."

Ilorner said she is glad she
made the jump to UK because the
facilities here are tnuch better than
those at ICKU.

“Everything here is a step up
from liastern," she said. “As far as
academics, everything is pretty
tiiuch the same. but softball is
ttiuch better."

just because Ilorner finds the
academic standards at UK fairly
consistent with those at F.KU
doesn't mean she didn't welcome
the change ofinteIIectuaI scenery.

“I found myself in a bad situa-
tion there so academically I was
needing a change,” she said.

Homer and the rest of the soft—
ball team are spending the week-
end in (lainesville, Fla., taking on
the University of Florida in a four-
game series.

was not evident to him until the
first meet.

“I ended up winning the meet,
but I threw really, really poorly
because I was so scared for some
reason,” he said. “It took me a
couple of meets in the indoor sea-
son to get going.”

The Tennessee indoor meet
jump-started Kavanagh. Finishing
second overall in a competitive
field, as well as breaking the UK
indoor record, was “a big ego
boost,” he said.

From there on it was a rosy
indoor season for him. Kavanagh
set the school record in every meet
en route to becoming the best
freshman hammer thrower in the
country despite missing a trip to
the NCAA Indoor Championships
by three inches.

The tools Kavanagh possesses
are what sets him apart from other
throwers, Kenneson said.

“Really good skills, and that’s
why he was so good in high
school,” Kenneson said.

“He’s a great competitor, one

of the best competitors that I’ve
ever been around.”

With the rest of the outdoor
season and three full years of eligi-
bility left, Kavanagh is confident
in his ability to get the job done.

“I plan on being All-American a
lot of times here, and I plan on
giving it my best to be on the
Olympic team in 2000.”


VCompetition begins tomor-
row for Kavanagh and the UK
track and field team at the Alumni
Gold Relays in Baton Rouge, La.

The one day meet also features
Louisiana State and Tennessee.

“I think a lot of our kids on the
trip will have personal records,”
Kenneson said.

VNext weekend, the track
team will travel to the Penn
Relays, which promises to be one
of the toughest meets of the sea-

Meanwhile, the field team will
stay home to host the Kentucky
Field Festival.

Somewhere in between Mid-

movie that wants to have its cake

drug dealer named jimmy the

Warlock is not ha y.

The main proEIZm in the film
comes in lack of direction. There
are plenty of good individual
scenes, with good acting by both
the leads, but they never really
seem to go an here.

He presents the character's ide-
alism as believable, even in the
face of the cruelties he witnesses
right up to the end of the film. His
mock confident strut and patheti-
cally hopeful eyes lend a touch of
poignancy to the film.

Another flaw is the film seems
to think it is doing something
original by taking all of the clichés
of prostitutes and applying them
to men.

He spends the rest of the movie
trying to make enough cash, to
spend his birthday (which not
coincidentally is Christmas) in this
hotel. Complications ensue.
