Visitation services for Wildcat
cornerback Ted Presley, who died
Friday, are scheduled to begin at 11
this morning at Gamble Funeral
Home in Hopkinsville, Ky.

The 22-year-old elecm'cal engi-
neering senior died at 11 am. Fri-
day when doctors at UK Hospital
disconnected life-support systems.

Presley was taken to the hospital

early Thursday after police say he
fired a bullet into his right temple
while playing a game of Russian
roulette with roonunate and lifelong
friend Jason Smith.

Earlier reports indicated that
Presley and Smith may have been
drinking, but a Lexington-Fayette
County coroner‘s report said no
drugs or alcohol were found in
Presley‘s bloodstream.

Presley‘s former teammates and
coaches spoke highly of him Friday

as they tried to make sense of his
senseless death.

“In his last practice on Wednes-
day, he enjoyed his finest moment
as a Wildcat football player with
several big plays during a scrim-
mage," Coach Bill Curry said.

”The type of spirit which Ted ex-
hibited on the football field will al-
ways remain a part of this Kentucky
football team."

Presley, a 5-foot-8, l70-pound

athlete from Christian (‘ounty High
School, attended llopkinsville
Conununity College for two years
before walking on at UK two years
ago. He never appeared in a game.

UK athletics director CM. New-
ton called Presley “an outstanding
young man who was making fine
contributions to the University,
both as a student and as an athlete."

liked by his friends, professors and

teammates on the UK football


Presley was a two-year starter at

“He will be greatly missed by us
all," Newton said. “This is a tragic
loss. not only to those who knew
Ted personally, but to the entire
University community as well.“

UK President Charles Wething-
ton said Presley was “truly a fine
student who was universally well

Although he played on the scout
team in 1991, Presley sat out last
season because he didn‘t yet have
enough credit hours at UK.

He returned to the team this
spring and was listed as fourth
string on the depth chart.

Doctors William Martin and M.
Ward Crowe hope their efforts to
counter possible bad press from
Saturday's In Defense of Animals
protest will heighten public aware-
ness of the reasons and rewards
for animal research.

The Califomia-based activist
group In Defense of Animals has
targeted the institutions of well-
known researchers such as Martin,
a physician-researcher and profes-
sor of anesthesiology in the UK
College of Medicine.

The focus of his research is the
addictive nature of narcotic anal-



gesics and the development of
pain-killing drugs that are less
likely to cause physical depen-
dence and seizures during with-
drawal in humans. His research in-
volves live animals, 90 percent of
which he says are rats and mice.

Martin said his research has
come under scrutiny, in part, be-
cause of public misconceptions
and indifference to facts. One ex-
ample, he said, is that the beagles
at the facility are not being used in
research. but are residing at the
UK center until renovations at
Spindletop Ilall are completed in

research for about two years," he


Natural resources management sophomore Laura Costello, a member of People for the Ethi-

"We think these animal acti-
vists are ill-informed or misled
because they have claimed and
paint a very bad picture of how
much our animals suffer. And the
fact of the matter is, we have little
evidence that they suffer at all.“
Martin said.

testers have seen the UK facili-

Groups protest use
of dogs in experiments


By Cara Danielle Moncer
Staff Writer

About 40 animal rights activists gathered on Rose Street Saturday,
waving signs and speaking to anyone willing to listen.

The demonstration, which included members of Califomia-based In
Defense of Animals, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and
Kentuckians for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, was one of 14
planned events across the country during World Laboratory Animal Lib—
eration Week, which began Saturday.

“I feel strongly that animal research is a waste especially when it
comes to drug addiction." KETA member Carol Frazier said. adding that
the activists protest cruelty to all animals, but the focus of the Lexington
demonstration was the use of dogs, in panicqu beagles, in addiction re-

“Just for the record, even Dr. (William) Martin (of UK) has made
statements in his own program that metabolisms of humans and dogs are
totally different, so how can you really justify drugging dogs like this?
And watching their withdrawal The scientific community doesn‘t
even use the data, so it‘s pointless.“

Frarier‘s statement reflected the printed opinion of addiction specialist
Dr. Robin R. Ballina, who is quoted in Il )A‘s literature.

Protester Anne Patterson said she worked for Martin about 6 years ago
as a lab assistant.

“I dosed some of the dogs with Valium directly into their stomachs
through surgically inserted tubes. This was done because it was believed
to be a more accurate dosage. Actually gastric juice and dog food leaked
out, and probably some Valium leaked out. It was pretty disgusting.

“One particular dog had a real hard time with the withdrawal. She
would have (increasingly bad seizures) . The way to stop seizures is
with a shot of barbiturates. We didn‘t have the power to decide that on
our own. so we had to call Dr. Martin, and he wanted to come down and
look at the dog before making a decision."

The dog suffered a fatal head injury during another seizure before the
doctor arrived, Patterson said, and she quit her job the next day.

“There are so many drug addicts out there right now who need help
and are not getting the funds because the money is being spent on the
animal research. It is almost a misappropriation,“ Frazier said.

She and Dr. Elliot M. Katz, a veterinarian and president of IDA. said

lab at the Albert B. Chandler Medical Center.

the program as “a lZO-pound fresh-
man with not a great deal of athletic
talent. Ted was a self-made player.

Agnostics dislike having religion forced upon them


By Lance Williams
Staff Writer


The UK telephone book contains the phone numbers of 17 campus relig-
ious organizations. But for some UK students, none of these numbers make
a connection — and neither does organized religion.

That‘s because these students find no comfort in turning to a higher pow-
er for support Their beliefs are based on human endeavors.

“I kind of think of organized religion as a security blanket,“ said Jeff
Wilder, an English sophomore. “l m kind of down on organized religion. I
don' t see a need for churches. "

English sophomore Robin Vitucci. who considers herself an agnostic.
said church was a “waste of time‘

"If there is a higher power," she said. “then he doesn't care anymore.“

Placing a figure on the number of people who call themselves atheists or
agnostics is difficult because, for many. it is not a topic that comes up of-

“Most are not willing to talk about religion.“ Vitucci said.

First, a distinction should be made between the terms atheist and agnos-
tic. Both Wilder and Vitucci consider themselves agnostics, a philosophi-
cal position that states it is impossible to know about the nature or exis-
tence of God or any higher power.

Worldwide, agnosticlsm has grown by large numbers timing the past

An unemployed Lexington man
walked into a campus building Fri-
day and took his ex-girlfriend hos-
tage at gunpoint, police say.

Kevin Michael Gibson, 32, of
171] Arcadia Park, faces charges of
first-degree burglary, first-degree
wanton endangerment, unlawful
imprisonment and disorderly con-
duct in connection with the inciv

He is scheduled to be arraigned at
9 am. today in Fayette District

UK Police Chief W.H. McComas
said Gibson apparently was upset
about the failed relationship with
his ext-girlfriend, UK biochemistry
technician Karen Fortenberry.

“It was an ex-girlfriend, ex-
boyfriend situation — and had been
for several months.“ McComas

An unidentified person called po-
lice at 4:16 pm. Friday to report “a
disorder involving a weapon“ at the
Dorothy Enslow (‘ombs Cancer Re-
search Building.

The (‘0th building. where For-
tenberry works. is located off Rose
Street near UK Hospital and is part
of the University‘s cancer research
and treatment program.

When two UK police officers ar-
rived at the site a few minutes later,
Gibson was holding Fortenberry
against her will and pointing a ful-
ly-loaded, 9 mm semi-automatic
pistol in the air, McComas said.

The two officers aimed their pis-
tols at Gibson and told him to drop
the weapon. McComas said.

After the officers repeated the
command “at least two or three
times," Gibson complied, he said.

No one was injured in the ordeal,
which was the second gun-related
incident on campus in as many
days. UK cornerback Ted Presley
apparently shot himself in the head
Thursday moming while playing
Russian roulette in his residence
hall. He died Friday.

Gibson remained in custody at
the Fayette County Detention (‘en~
ter last night. His full-cash bond is
set at $20,000, a deputy jailer said.

Sweet sounds make Morrissey clones stand out



By John Abbott


Staff Critic


I thought I was Morrissey-proof.

For years, I was able to resist the
strange magic of The Smiths' pre-
cious, pretentious lead singer, Ste-
phen Morrissey. Now, not every
pretentious lead singer annoys me
— the fact that R.E.M.‘s Michael
Stipe is one of the most self-
important people in music today (to
be fair, I don’t actually know the
guy, but he acts like a totally self-
possessed post-hippie and doesn't
in the least try to discourage such
comments by the media) doesn’t
hinder my enjoyment of R.E.M.’s
music. Still, Morrissey's whiny
brand of egotism bothered me to no
end, so, with a few exceptions
(Who couldn‘t love the vengeful
charm of “Unhappy Birthday"?), I
was able to keep him out of my

When The Smiths broke up and
Morrissey decided to wallow in pa-


thetic self-pity on his own, I figured
that I could let my guard down a lit-
tle. After all, without the delightful
plucking of Smiths guitarist Johnny
Marr to trick me into liking his
songs, I didn’t have to worry as
much (this, of course, is the same
theory that says if you wrap the pill
in some meat, your dog will eat it
because he doesn't realize that he's
taking medicine). So I relaxed a bit.

And then I got stabbed in the

While I wasn‘t looking, a new
English band called Suede released
a self-titled album full of slick,
tuneful guitar-pop that wormed its
way into my brain before I knew
what was happening. Morrissey
may have failed to win me over on
his own — he still annoys me to
death — but his sound-alike min-
ions have invaded my brain and ob-
tained a quick surrender.

Every rising band needs a sledge-
hammer anthem to make its mark
on the music scene, and Suede has
one in the brilliant, twisted “Metal
Mickey." The verses ride bumpily
on Bernard Butler’s nasty-sounding,
occasionally dissonant guitar, but
during the choruses, the song
switches tracks and glides on the
sweet strength of Brett Anderson’s
singing. Also with anthem potential
is “The Drowners," which is slow
and halting but excellent nonethe-
less. lt‘s like a freight train moving
at 15 mph; not very fast, but it‘s
powerful enough to smash you llal.
“Animal Nitrate,“ a pleasant little
song about violent gay sex, benefits
from Ed Buller‘s imaginative pro-
duction, which warps Butler‘s gui-
tar into a threatening, evil-sounding

Is Suede really “Morrissey II: The
Smiths Strike Back"? Almost. Of
course, the parallels are there: An-
derson‘s soaring vocals recall The
Pretentious One perfectly. Butler’s
guitar work is reminiscent of Marr
and the Anderson/Butler songwrit-
ing axis just begs to be compared to
Morrissey/Mart. Yes, they’re very
close to a sequel.

The big difference between Suede
and The Smiths is that Suede actual-
ly has a rhythm section worth some-
thing. While it‘s pretty obvious that
Smiths drummer Mike Joyce and
bass player Andy Rourke were little
more than sessions players who co-
incidentally kept showing up on
every Smiths album, Suede bassist
Mat Osman and dnimmer Simon
Gilbert sound like pan of the team.
Osman is especially impressive; on
the slow songs. he manages some
fairly intricate interplay with Butler,
and even on the fast songs, he tran-
scends the usual “thump-thump-
thump" garbage that most bass
players have been reduced to in
rock music these days.

I have heard that, while almost
unheard of in America. Suede is all
the rage in England. Will we never
learn? It doesn't matter — they‘ll
break the States soon enough. Save
this review, so that in a few years,
when we stubborn Americans learn
to appreciate how good Suede is.
you can read this article again, and I
can plant a big, fat. “I told you so!"
right on your forehead.

Young bashes Clinton, Gore for lack of support at Farm Aid VI


By Greg Smith
Associated Press


AMES, Iowa — Willie Nelson‘s
sixth Farm Aid concert Saturday
brought out some disharmony from
Neil Young and others, who criti-
cized the Clinton administration in
front of the president's brother.

Young, who also joined Nelson
at the first Farm Aid in 1985, said
he was upset that Farm Aid had de-

teriorated into a “kind of picnic, a
party for everyone."

He was especially angry that
President Clinton had not sent Vice
President Al Gore or Agriculture
Secretary Mike Espy to the concert
to support farmers.

“Where is Gore? Where is
Espy?" Young wanted to know.
“I‘m not too happy to be here. I
thought when we got rid of Bush
and Reagan there was going to be a
change. Then we wouldn‘t need any

more Farm Aids."

Nelson disagreed, saying: “There
is a change coming."

“The first thing we have to do is
get those seven million farmers
who have been forced off the land
back on the land," said Nelson, who
started the concerts when large
numbers of families were losing
their farms. “We have to force the
big conglomerates to pay farmers
more“ for their products.

Goo Goo Dolls mix punk,
pop at Superstar Car Wash

“Punk is punk and pop is pop,
and never the twain shall meet" is
the usual mle in music.

The punks can‘t seem to write a
song that has a pleasant melody,
but the popsters seem unable to
write any really meaty riffs.

A few bands, like Buffalo,
N.Y.‘s Goo Goo Dolls, can bridge
that gap. though. On the band‘s
new album, Superstar Car Wash,
the G005 have pulled off that tricky
meld time and time again. Finally
— tuneful songs with bite.

Cleverly disguised as raucous al-
ternative rock, the 14 songs on Su-
perstar Car Wash are, in fact. just a
bunch of amped-up pop songs. Pure
Candy. Listen to “Cuz You‘re
Gone" and “Girl Right Next To
Me." and you’ll realize that they're
the same brand of lost-love song
that populates the airwaves.

“Close Your Eyes" is a sweet.
devoted love song, the kind of gen-
uinely heartfelt poetry you always
wished you could write to your true
love on Valentine’s Day. “Already
There" is a warm remembrance of

Though being an “alternative”

tious artistes. the Goo Goo Dolls

above, turning out some terntrc (but
loud) pop music.

It's hard to pick a favorite song
because there’s a lot of good stuff
on this album.

“We Are The Normal," the al-
bum‘s first single, is a lush. tex-
tured song complete with flowing
violins and lyrics penned by guest-
genius Paul Westerberg, ex-leader
of Minneapolis‘ mighty Replace-

Though I like almost everything
on Superstar Car Wash, “Lucky
Star" (which pounds the Madonna
song of the same name into the
pavement), “Don‘t Worry" and
“Girl Right Next To Me“ are the
ones that find themselves piped
through my headphones more than
the others.

All three of them are nimble,
speedy songs with enough hooks to
poke out the eyes of an entire army

What I like best about a good
three-piece band like the Goo Goo
Dolls in that, unlike a four- or five-
piece unit, which usually involves
two guitar players constantly fight-
ing each other for attention. a three-
piece is stripped-down and tight.

Guitarist/singer John Rzeznik,
who wrote almost half the songs on
the album by himself, doesn‘t pro-
duce any intricate solos or buzzsaw
punk-rock jams. but he writes some

Sherman's Alley by Gibbs & Voidt


undeniably likable material. He
doesn‘t need any help.

Singer/bass player Robby Takac
does plenty more than just plunk
out basic supporting lines. He
makes himself heard, swooping up
and down again and again, carrying
the melody while Rzeznik solos or
pounds out his strong rhythm riffs.

George Tutuska‘s dnrtns are sim-
ple and understated, but what’s
wrong with that? We’ve got enough
would-be Bonhams in the world. so
it’s refreshing to see a drummer that
is content to keep time and stay in
support of his band mates.

Besides the fact that the sounds
of both the Replacements and the
Goo Goo Dolls lie in that frightfully
narrow strip of music where punk
and pop are fused together, the
G005 also share a little bit of histo-
ry with Westerberg‘s old outfit.

Both bands were forced to
change their names on the spot
when club owners refused to hire
them under the names that they
were using at the time. It may be a
silly name, but what‘s that got to do
with anything? That's like saying
that all women named “Candy" are
vacuous air heads. The music's
what's really important, after all.

Superstar Car Wash is a tricky
album. It looks like your garden-
variety indie rock music, but peel
away the layers and you can see
that. at the heart of it all. it‘s just
pop music. Louder and better, but
pop all the same.

GAINESVILLE. Fla. — Shortly
after yesterday‘s game against Flor-
ida. a Wildcat baseball player bel-
lowed to his teammates front the
dugout: “Hey guys. do you sweep
with a mop or a broom?"

“It depends on what kind of
sweeping you‘re doing." shot back
senior pitcher Scott Smith.

Actually. the Cats didn‘t use a
mop or a broom this weekend. In-
stead. they used strong pitching,
clutch hitting and some timely de-
fensive gems to
sweep the Flori-
da Gators at
l‘erry Field.

7-4 victory fol~
lowed two wins
on Saturday.
The Cats (25-
16) became the
first team in sev-
en years to
sweep the Gators MADISON
at their own swamp.

“We really put it all together."
said UK head coach Keith Madison.
“Our sort-of-maimed pitching staff
came through for us."

With ace Scott Smith out because
of the flu. Madison had to concoct a
makeshift pitching rotation. Brian
Reed and Lohm Frazier stopped
Florida on Saturday. and Matt
Bowles was the man yesterday.

The sophomore right-hander gave
up two quick runs in the first inning
and another spot in the second. But
like Reed did on Saturday. Bowles
quickly settled down and controlled
UF batters with his off-speed pitch-
es. which had the Gators swinging
for the fences.

“I came out and tried to blow it
by them and found out I couldn’t do
that." Bowles said. “So I went to
my off-speed stuff. They were try-
ing to hit it out and the curveball
had them off stride.“

Bowles shut Florida out until the
eighth inning. when Bo (‘arnposano
smacked a home run over the left
field wall.

UK couldn‘t manage a hit until
the fourth inning. but then hits



came in droves. Eddie Brooks start-
ed a two-out rally by earning a base
on balls after a l2-pitch batde with
Gator starter Doug Brennan.

Pookie Jones then followed with
a seeing-eye dribbler that found its
way through second and short.
Chris Gonzalez drove in the duo
with a blooper that dropped just
short of center fielder Brian Duva.
Freshman Paul
Morse then
turned in almost
an exact replay
with another
blooper in front
of Duva to score

UK put to-
gether a larger
rally in the fifth.
With the bases

BOWLES loaded. Florida
reliever Chris Nelson walked Jones
and Gonzalez followed with a sin-
gle. driving in two. Morse singled
in Jones.

Jones was everywhere during the
series and all over right field. He
ended the sixth inning by sprawling
to his right and robbing Steve Dai-
ley of a sure extra-base hit in the

He also ended a Florida rally in
the eighth. After stumbling. Jones
backtracked to the wall and snared
pinch hitter Alex Diaz‘s liner with
the bases loaded.

“He came through with a tremen-
dous athletic play.“ Madison said of
Jones. who also is quarterback of
the UK football team. “I told him
that I always knew he could scram-

Jones also was six for 11 at the
plate in the series with 5 RBI.

Gonzalez was four for five with 4
RBI yesterday. and Morse went two
for three with 2 RBI.

Once again. the wind seemed to
leave the Gators’ sail when they got
behind yesterday. much like the
Cats of weeks past. Morse said.

“In our first couple of SEC series.

we got real down on ourselves
when we got behind.“ said the first
baseman/relief pitcher. “They kind
of looked the way we did early on
in the season.“
