return to
big crowd


By Lance Williams
Staff Writer

UK basketball fans acted some-
what like postal carriers Saturday
night. Neither drizzle, the cold
nor dark of night could keep them
from welcoming their heroes.

The Wildcats were greeted by
more than 500 fans at Bluegrass
Airport after the team defeated
Florida State to earn UK’s first
trip to the Final Four since 1984.

The Cats arrived back in Lex-
ington from Charlotte, NC, at
about 8:50 pm, but some fans
were there as early as 7:45 pm. to
cheer on the New Orleans-bound

Michele Hampton, of Lexing~
ton, who was there with some
friends from Transylvania Uni-
versity. said she is too young to
remember much about the NCAA
title in 1978 and that now is the
first time people in her age group
have something big to cheer.

“All we have seen is them los-
ing (in the tournament)." Hamp-
ton said.

UK student Alan Boens and
twin sisters Julia Alwes and Mar-
la Alwes were among the earliest
fans to arrive. They got to the
gate about 7:50 pm. to watch for
the Wildcats' plane.

Boens watched the game from
his room in Blanding Ill and said
the mood was “festive" after the

“I thought the walls were about
to cave in." Boens said with a

hind a fence. That didn't keep
them out of the celebration, how-

After the players got off the
plane. they mingled with fans who
got through the gate.

Cheers of “We want Todd"
started from the crowd. prompting
the senior walk-on to not only
greet fans who made it through.
but also fans all the way down the
fence as well.

Some UK fans may have a more
difficult time reaching the final

The booklets cost $65. and only
one will be allotted per person.

GPAC endorses Dowdy amid complaints a

Planned secret-ballot vote Changed

The Greek Political Action Com-
mittee yesterday endorsed business
management senior Lance Dowdy
for Student Government Associa-
tion president.

Following a noon debate among
the four SGA presidential candi-
dates at Memorial Hall yesterday,
GPAC delegates discussed the pro-
ceedings and took a voice vote. in
which Dowdy received a majority.

However. there is some contro-

versy over whether GPAC‘s vote
was fair.

This year, however. Robert War-

the voting format. but the Parthel-

GPAC chairwoman Talya Roberts

Ohio man to be arraigned
in alleged campus assault


By Dale Greer
Executive Editor

An Urbana. Ohio. man is sched-
uled for arraignment in Fayette Dis-
dict Court this morning on charges
dent at a campus fraternity house
this weekend.

Scott Ratliff. 22. was arrested by
UK police yesterday and charged


with attempted rape and second.
degree assault. UK spokesman
Ralph Derickson said.

Ratliff and the alleged victim ap-
parently had been attending a party
Sunday morning at the Alpha Gam-
ma Rho social fraternity house. 701
Woodland Ave.

Dcrickson said there was no indi-
cation that the two knew each other

She said no written information
about the voting format was given
to delegates.

There also was no systematic
way to ensure that all delegates
knew of the change in format. For
example. new delegates only
teamed of the voice-vote method if
the delegates they were replacing
informed them.

Robens said the voice vote may
have put pressure on delegates be-
cause they had to vote in front of
the GPAC committee.

“Some of the votes may have
been different if it had been by se-
cret ballot instead of by voice
vote." Roberts said.

Roberts would not say last night
whether GPAC would throw out the
endorsement of Dowdy and conduct
a new ballot.

GPAC vote totals for each presi-

Roberts said the committee par-
ticularly was impressed by Dow
dy‘s character.

“He seemed to have a broad
range of interests, and he was very
enthusiastic." Roberts said.

The committee also noted that the
experience and knowledge of Dow-
dy’s running mate. Amber Leigh.
made the ticket stand out.

“Just the way they started their
campaign late and built it to this
level shows how well they'd work

Candidates for Student Government Association president take
part in yesterday's GPAC debate at Memorial Hall.

Registration begins Wednesday


By Erica Patterson
Staff Writer


Advance registration for the 1903
summer sessions and the fall semes-
tcr begins Wednesday.

One of the problems students of-
ten face is that some class sections
fill up quickly. said Susan Skees.
administrative assistant in the Col-
lege of Agriculture.

Therefore. students should meet
with their academic advisers in

soon as possible to plan class
schedules and options. said Randall
Dahl. University registrar.

“Waiting until the last minute is
not very helpful." Dahl said. espe-
cially in light of recent University
budget cuts that have reduced the
number of class offerings.

"There continues to be some gen-
eral tightness with the availability
of courses." he said.

Priority for advance registration
begins with graduate students and
seniors. but students will be able to



register anytime after their designat-
ed times. said Lisa Collins. assistant
registrar of registration.

To advance register. currently en-
rolled students must meet with their
academic advisers and pick up reg-
istration permits from their college
dean's offices. Collins said.

Students in the College of Arts
and Sciences should report to their
departmental offices. Non-degree.

Dieting not always beneficial

On any given day 40 million
Americans are dieting. We plunk
down millions of dollars each year
on diet programs. diet books, pills,
weight loss clinics and the like.
And to what end?

Usually within two years most
are right back where they started
and some are heavier than when
they first began dieting.

For most people, diets don't
work. In fact. some researchers re-
port that only about 5 percent of
diets are successful. Yet. we still do

We compare ourselves to fashion
models of New York -— tall and
thin. The fashion industry and ad-
vertising are busy selling us a pic-
ture of what we could be. They are
buying and selling a fantasy.

For most people, the ideal is un-
reachable. We run, exercise. and
don‘t eat. often to an dangerous ex-
tent. We expend an incredible
amount of energy to lose that “ex-
cess“ 10 to 15 pounds.

Millions of children are worried
about growing up fat. Eighty per-
cent of children l3,l4 and IS years

Some research tells us that fat
people don‘t eat more than thin peo-
ple. And to lose weight, they must
eat considerably less than others
and then attempt to maintain what
they've lost.

The “set point" theory helps to
explain how this works. How fat or
thin you are is regulated by chemis-

There is some evidence that,
through the ages, fatness actually
has been selected for. In times of fa-
mine, thin people died quickly.

It has only been the last 70 years
or so that we have been socially se-
lecting for thinness.

According to the theory, when
you go on a diet, your body slows
down. It thinks you might be enter-
ing a famine of sorts and wants you
to survive.

It starts screaming at you to eat
while using up less calories to save
your life. It may even use muscle to
save fat. Then, when the diet is over
your body begins the work of get-
ting you back to your “set" weight

So the diet fails. You fail. You
experience lowered self-esteem and
emotional pain. That‘s the bad

intake and increasing aerobic exer-

By exercising regularly you not

If you take in less “energy" (calo- ‘

Bar group backing
Dowdy for president


By Carollne Shlvoly
Staff Writer


The Student Bar Association en-
dorsed Lance Dowdy on Friday for
student body president.

The endorsement came two days
after the group held a forum for
candidates. but Student Bar Associ-
ation president Greg Metzger said
the candidates‘ performances in the
fonnn did not form “the basis for
our endorsement."

“It was their platforms and the
feedback we got from students" that
influenced SBA's executive council
the most, Metzger said.

“(Dowdy) is very qualified for
the position," Metzger said. “He is
the person who would put forth the
best representation for the law

school and students in graduate pro-

Dowdy said the endorsement will
show people that he and Leigh are
serious candidates.

“This legitimizes us as candi-
dates," Dowdy said. “We came out
late. and people have questioned
our experience and our character.
This shows that we're really seri-



Metzger said Dowdy is the best
candidate to ensure passage of pro-
posed SBA initiatives like the stu-
dent-run pro bono legal assistance
program. a graduate student organi-
zation and a uniform copy card sys-
tem in all UK libraries.

“He will be the most effective in
putting them forward and making
them a reality," Metzger said.

Just prior to the alleged assault,
the woman entered one of the fra-

she was alone, Derickson said. Rat-

am. and allegedly assaulted her.

“The initial investigation indi-
cates she was in the room (alone) at
first. and he asked for entrance and
she refused." Derickson said. “He

was detained until police arrived,
Derickson said. He was expected to

Center, a jail clerk said.

The alleged victim was taken to
UK Hospital where she was treated
for unspecified injuries and re-

“This is awesome," said Todd
Svoboda. as he made his way
down the line to high-five the
group of fans that flocked to talk

Fans at the gate were speaking
of a mission that this year's UK
team has seemingly undertaken.
Larry Sutherland, of Lawrence-
burg, who attended last year's
UK-Duke game in Philadelphia.
said he thinks last year's loss has
made the team more determined
to win the championship.

“To this day it still hurts. Eve-
ryone knew we had it, and they
just took it away from it," Suther-
land said. “This one is for last
year's seniors. That is part of the
mission that they are on."

Sutherland said he spent 12
hours on the phone trying to get
tickets to the game in Charlotte.

Fans could not help but remem-
ber last year's squad and how


close they came to making it to
the Final Four.

cial) with all of the Kentucky
boys. Travis (Ford) is the home

better than the last time the Wild-
cats won the title in 1978.

“(Fan support) is a lot more
now, ever since Rick Pitino." Su-

Romances deserve
respect, speaker says


By Nina Davldson
Staff Writer

Romance novels have far more
social importance than their flimsy
pulp reputations suggest. a litera~
ture professor said yesterday.

Janice Radway. a Duke Universi-
ty literature instructor and author of
“Reading the Romance: Women.
Patriarchy and Popular Literature."
said the genre of romance writing
“has been dismissed as silly. senti-
mental, obscene, sexist and patriar-

But she defended the writing
style during a speech at the UK Art
Museum. calling it “a principle site
for the struggle over feminine iden-
tity and sexuality."

Radway cited the popularity of
romance novels to back up her
claim that romance is an important
genre of literature. Today. 45 per-
cent of all mass-market paperbacks
are romances.

She also gave a brief history of
the romance genre, noting that ro-
mances in the 19503 and ‘603 were
written from an entirely female
point of view. In the ’705 and ‘805,
however, they began to be written
from the point of view of both fe-
male and male characters.

Readers of romances often identi-
fy with the heroine, but they also
identify across gender boundaries,
Radway said. This allows the reader
to experience different roles. she

Romance novels. Radway said,

have changed with the changing
times and the rise of feminism. In-
stead of a passive feminine sexuali-
ty espoused in early romance nov-
els. now “the hero. too, can be
overpowered — by an actively sex-
ual woman."

According to a survey of ro-
mance writers Radway conducted.
most identify themselves as femi-
nists. Radway said she hopes “aca-
demic feminists can begin to find
common cause with romance writ—
ers and readers."

Radway‘s lecture opened UK Art
Museum’s exhibit of “Popular Pas-
sions," a show featuring 25 original
paintings of best-selling Harlequin
Romance book covers. The acrylics
and oil paintings, by artist Danny
Crouse, are owned by a Lexington
collector. Photographs of models
that Crouse used in his paintings
also are on display.

Radway said that exhibiting the
Harlequin covers in a museum is an
important step toward acknowledg-
ing the legitimacy of commercial
Radway criticized the modernist
an movement as “difficult, complex
and often deliberately obscure."
Popular art, on the other hand, is
“accessible, easily readable and
emotional," she said.

The lecture and an exhibit were
sponsored by Harlequin Enterprises
Limited, Joseph-Beth Booksellers
and the UK Women‘s Studies Pro-
gram. “Popular Passions" runs
through May 9.

Mary Kemper, travel consultant
at Global Travel, has another option
— driving to New Orleans.

“We don’t have any (airline tick-
ets)," she said. “I’m sorry to say
that bemuse we could have sold a
million of them."

Blount said many UK backers
have long been convinced that the
Wildcats would be heading to the
Final Four.

“I haven't had much sleep trying
to get people down there," he said.


Getting a standby flight is even
less likely and would be quite ex-

If a fan is lucky enough to get a
standby flight, it would cost about
$1,000, Kemper said.

Those who do not already have
rooms reserved can forget about
staying in New Orleans -— and pos-
sibly anywhere near the city. Fans
may have to be content with a long
drive in from places like Baton
Rouge or Pascagoula, Miss.

No rooms were available late last
week in New Orleans or its nearest
suburbs, said Sylvia Bleakley of the

Stiles attributed some of the mas-
sive hotel shonages to a jazz festi-
val that also is being held in New
Orleans next weekend.

Tickets for the general public will
be sold at 9 am. Tuesday at Memo-
rial Coliseum.

There are three types of tickets.
with face-value prices of $65. $45
and $30.

The price includes tickets for all
three games —— the two semifinals
Saturday and the championship
Monday night.

The Louisiana Superdome in



New Orleans seats 63.000 basket-
ball fans.

The arena has three levels: the
top. or terrace level; the middle. or
loge level; and the plaza. which is
nearest to the basketball court.

Friday‘s New Orleans Times-
Picayune contained 32 classified
ads for Final Four tickets.

Twenty-two of the ads offered
tickets for sale. but a sampling of
the services selling tickets showed
they would be costly.
