Homecoming engulfs Vandy

Assistant Sports Editor

Ah, Homecoming! The drunken
alumni. the drunken students, the
band playing My Old Kentucky
Home, and the game—oh yeah, the

Few people referred to it as an
exciting contest. In fact, had it not
been for the band playing especially
loud during the halftime festivities,
several thousand fans may have
missed the entire game after being
put to sleep during the first half.

As it was, UK did manage to
record its first shutout in about a
century, blanking Vanderbilt 14-0.

The highlight of the first half came
early. 0n UK‘s first possosion,
reserve running back Pete Gemmill
entered the ga me and punted. That‘s
nothing outof the ordinary. Gemmill
has replaced regular punter Rick
Hayden before. Except this time, he
punted on second down.

It was the old quick-kick play.
After a holding penalty had made. it
second down and 21 yards to go for a

first down, Gemmill punted. Curci
defended the call by saying, “We
thought our defense could hold them.
With the wind at our back, it was the
right thing to do.”

One player, who asked not to be
identified, offered a different
reason. “Curci's had us practicing
that play all season and he just
didn’t want all of that practice time
to go to waste."

If the quick kick was the first half
highlight, then you should know
about the rest of the half.
Statistically, it read something like
this: UK—four plays and punt;
Vandy—three plays and punt; UK—
seven plays and a Derrick Ramsey
fumble; V andy—three plays and
punt; UK—four plays and a missed
John Pierce field goal, and so on ad

UK had done a classic job on the
Commodores in the first half. The
Cats rolled up 189 yards total offense
in the half, including 78 yards
passing. Ramsey completed eight of
11 pa$es in the first half. Un-

“i” Cats grind out 14-0 win

forturately, this passing display
didn‘t survive throughout the game.
In the second half, Ramsey threw
two passes, hitting on one of them.

Halftime found Vandy and UK
locked in a scoreless tie. However,
the Cats did get around to scoring
halfway through the third quarter.

In a drive highlighted by a 31-yard
tightroping exhibition by Ramsey,
UK mounted a scoring drive that
covered 68 yards in six plays.

However, UK fans should not
become too overconfident with the
Homecoming victory. “They‘re
worse than Oregon State tUK‘s first
opponent). Man, they are bad! “ said
student assistant coach Ed
Singleton. Vandy's 1-7 record would
seem to bear that out.

The Cats' offense got back on
track Saturday after taking a couple
of weeks vacation. UK rolled up 420
yards total, including 91 through the
airwaves. The defense, which has
been the mainstay of Kentucky
football, was outstanding. holding
Vanderbilt to 224 yards.

Pregnant women find counseling

at Birthright of Lexington, Inc.

Kernel Staff Writer

If a woman is pregnant and has
neither the mental nor financial
resources to handle the situation,
she can find help in Birthright of
Lexington. Inc, an agency
established solely to help women in
such s'tuations.

Mary Agnes McNeil, Birthright
director, said the agency was
established with the goal of being a
“liaison" between the pregnant
client and agencies in town which
can be of service to her. In doing
this, she said, Birthright can “offer
a realistic alternative to girls who
are pregnant and who are suffering
difficult times because of the

The initial contact with a Bir-
thright client usually comes via the
teleplnne, according to McNeil. The
contact is made through the Bir-
thright “Hotline,” which can either
put the caller in direct contact with a
Birthright volunteer or provide a
numberatwhich a volunteer may be

Women call Birthright for a
number of reasons, McNeil said.
They may need financial advice,
medical advice or just counseling
about the various implications in-
volved in pregnancy. Birthright
tries to help in both of these areas.

Birthright works With several
Lexington agencies in finding op-
tions for its clients, she said. Among
these agencies are the Department
of Human Resources, the UK
Medical Center and various social
and child—care agencies in the city.

After a client calls Birthright, her
case is turned over to a “client-
volunteer,“ who follows it through to
its end. These client-volunteers are
women who work with Birthright on
a strictly volunteer basis. They may
range from housewives to students
to women who work in other jobs.

The client-volunteer tries to make
some type of face-to-face contact
with the client within 24 hours after
the phone contact. From that point
on, the client-volunteer will try to
maintain contact with the volunteer
until her services are no longer
needed. This contact may vary in
time consumed, according to Kay
Kaak, a Birthright clientwolunteer
and former director of Birthright.
She said the client-volunteer usually
becomes more active in her contact
with the client as the pregnancy
progresses. This contact can last up
through six weeks after the birth
occurs, she said.

Along with liaison and counseling
services, Birthright also offers
classes to single clients in early pre-
natal care and child-birth education.

Presently, the women who seek

help from Birthright are usually in
their late teens, according to Kaak.
But, she said, Birthright has also
counseled much older women. The
clients of Birthright are not strictly
unmarried. either. Sometimes they
may be married women whose
husbands have left them or who
have lost their jobs, causing the
financial “bottom to sort of drop out
of their lives," she said.

Birthright began as an
organization in 1968 in Toronto,
Canada. Since then it has spread
internationally, coming to Lexington
in l972. The Lexington organization
is funded totally by private
donations, according to McNeil.

Up until now, Birthright of
Lexington has had to rely mainly on
wordof-mouth for publicity, she
said. Because the agency has in-
creased in size, it is able to devote
more of its time to publicity. As a
result, Birthright is growing.

Kaak said Birthright has just
completed a move into new offices
and is better able to publicize its
services. “I think we‘re growing,"
she said. “We‘re really starting to do
more creative things now.“

But growth is not the primary goal
of Birthright. “Even if we only had
one girl a year, I would view it as a
success,“ said McNeil. “The im-
portant thing is that we help.“

Equestrians ignore cold weather,

stage first student horse show

Kernel Reporter

Despite the brisk weather Sunday,
the UK Equestrian students (and
their horses) were determined thtat
the show would go on. So, fighting
the cold, horses and riders prepared
early to put on the first student horse
show at Spindletop Farm.

The show began at 8 am. and
lasted throughout the day, though
the number of spectators waned in
the afternoon because of the cold
weather. But the enthusiasm of the
students did not falter, even through
the time when it was collectively
decided to cancel the last of the
activities, in favor of getting out of
the cold.

Everyone seemed, however, to be
happy with the event. The show was
sponsored by the students in the UK
equitation classes.

“The students did 90 per cent of
the work in organizing the show,“
said Karen Winn, one of the
equitation instructors and a faculty

The purpose of the show, Winn
said, was mainly a fun day for
students. “But,” she said, “it was
also an education for them. Many
of the students have never been in a
horse show before. They learned
how a show is judged and some show
techniques (such as braiding the
horses‘ manes) and how to put a
show together."

Nearly 140 students participated
in the hose show, according to
Betsy Brigham, programs and
publicity director and a member of
the dressage class. “We nad ac-
tivities for all the students,“ she
said. “Some of the shows were
specialized (beginners only or
specified classes). Some were open
to everyone."

Students who participated in the
shows were required to pay a $1
entrance fee, which bought ribbons
arri prizes for the winners.

The events of the day ranged from

disciplined equitation classes, in
which the horse and rider were
judged on form and ability to obey
commands, to the egg and spoon
race, in which the students held a
raw egg in a spoon with one hand
and raced around the ring. There
was alsoa banana race, in which the
students had to peel and eat a whole
banana while directing their mounts

through an obstacle course.
Although the show was generally
deemed a success, there was one
moment of fear for students and
spectators alike, when one of the
students was thrown from her horse
during a segment of the show.
However. she was able to get up
after a few minutes and walk off the
field, amid cheers from everyone.

Curci needs

to understand

press, its role

L'K football coach Fran Curci displayed his
ignorance Saturday, following Kentucky’s 14-0
win over Vanderbilt.

Basically, the fourth-year coach accused the
Lexington Herald and The Louisville Courier-
Journal of deliberately printing articles
designed to damage the University’s football
program. Curci‘s remarks were prompted by
articles appearing in those newspapers con-
cerning the limited playing time of quarterback
Bill Tolston.

Tolston had told reporters after UK’s loss to
Maryland that he was dissatisfied with his
limited playing time this fall. Herald columnist
D.G. FitzMaurice questioned Curci for not at-
fording Tolston more game time while the
Courier article by Paul Borden quoted Tolston’s
comments on the situation.

Another Courier article quoted freshman
quarterback Mike Deaton as saying he was led
by UK recruiters to believe that the offense
would be changed this fall to afford Deaton with
playing time and that he, too. was disappointed
with his current back-up status.

The articles concerned legitimate news about
the UK football program, which commands fan
interest throughout the state. Curci is perfectly
justified in disagreeing with the opinions in
FitzMaurice’s article, but he is wrong in calling
articles about the UK quarterback situation
“cheap shots.”

Curci himself took the cheap shot-and it isn’t
his first. After the final game of last fall’s
disastrous season, Curci blasted broadcaster
Phil Foster for reporting the existence of point-
shaving. Foster actually had a legitimate news
story in reporting only the widespread existence
of point-shaving rumors.

Curci accused Foster of starting the rumors.
ironically, Foster‘s story served to refute the
rumors as he reported that UK Athletic Director
Cliff Hagan and NCAA officials found no basis
for the rumors.

But Curci didn‘t know about that part of the


...ignorant ofthe press’ role .

broadcast—simply because he never heard the
report, as he publicly admitted. Curci relied on
hearsay evidence then and said he didn't read
the stories in the Courier-Journal either.

In both instances, Curci did not merely express
his disagreement and anger with the stories, but
he lashed out with half-baked, irresponsible
accuasations. Curci’s allegation that The
Courier-Journal tried to “screw up" the football
recruiting program because if UK were to “win
too much there won't be anything negative to
write about” is just plain stupid.

The two newspapers Curci attacked have
consistently made a daily effort to cover the UK
football program by covering not only the games
but spring practice, recruiting and constant
personality features on players. And when
legitimate news like an NCAA investigation is
established, it is reported in the interest of the
public. There is absolutely no reason to suspect
The Courier or the Herald of deliberately trying
to damage the UK football program.

Curci has a history of blasting the press. He
berated papers in Tampa and Miami when he
coached at those two Florida universities. This is
an inication that Curci is not adept at handling
the press, and the recent incident is more than

The UK football program has advanced under
Curci‘s leadership. He is recruiting better
athletes and his four-year record, with the ex-
ception of the fiasco last fall, has evidenced his
abilities as a coach. But in interacting with the
press, Curci is a flop.

Unless he makes an effort to understand the
press and its role in disseminating legitimate
information, we can't expect much more. And
that‘s a bad mark on the UK football program.

Large, varied group of enemies

faces Palestinian revolution


Few revolutionary movements
have faced as large and varied a
group of determined enemies as the
Palestinians are now facing. Henry
Kissinger‘s successive shuttle visits
were able to bring together Assad of
Syria. Hussain of Jordan, the fascist
Phalangists of Lebanon and the




Zionist state of israel into one
cohesive alliance directed against
the Palestinian people. their
legitimate representative the
PLO ., and the progressive forces of
Lebanon. With the Syrian military
invasion of Lebanon earlier this
year. it became apparent that an all-
out effort to crush the Palestinian
Revdution was under way.

l.'.S. imperialism has consistently
relied on local surrogate regimes in
the Middle East to preserve its huge
cconimic and strategic intersts. it
has shipped great quantities of arms
to such govemments as israel, Iran
and Saudi Arabia and entrusted
primarily the Zionist state and the
Shah of Iran with the task of
checking the national liberation
movements and preventing their
develqament in the region. Since the
October 1973 war, the US. has ac-
tively sought a “peaceful set-
tlement" of the Palestinian issue in
an effort to undermine the rising

Palestinian resistance movement
and diffuse its revolutionary
potential. Significantly, it succeeded
in recruiting both Egyptian
President Sadat and Syria’s Assad
who committed themselves to the
liquidation of the Palestinian cause,
and was able to seek the im-
plementation of an overall set-
tlement with the Zionist state, at the
expense of the Palestinian people
and the Arab National Liberation
Movement as a whole. Today the
Palestinian revolution firmly stands
against such a settlement which
aims at preserving the status quo in
the area.

The Palestinian revolutionary role
was quickly perceived by Kissinger
to be one of the foremost dangers
that stood in the face of US. con-
tainment politics. An attempt at co-
opting the Palestinian Revolution in
the postOctober war period, by
the extension of the idea of a “mini-
state“ on the west bank failed. it
thus hear me clear that containment
of the Palestinians required a series
of military offensives that would
leave their armed resistance
weakened and vulnerable. First the
right wing militaries of Lebanon,
which the US. helped to organize
and equip. were unleashed against
the Palestinian Revolution and its
ally, the Lebanese progressive
forces. When this failed and as the

right wing forces were on the verge
of collapse the Syrain regime no
longer had a choice but to expose its
true reactionary identity and in-
tervene in the war on the side of the
fascists. The Zionist state of Israel, in
the meantime, is standing by should
its intervention become necessary.
As the war in Lebanon goes on and
as the Syrian military intervention
is being escalated, the Palestinian
and chanrsc people are deter-
mined to pursue the struggle until
final victory.

The lranian Students Association,
Lexington Palestine Committee, are
devoting the week of Nov. 8-12 in
solidarity with the Palestinian
Revolution. This is a part of the
nationwide activities in the first
weeks of November which aims to
contribute to a better understanding
by the American people of the
situation in lebanon and the nature
of the US. involvement in that
country’s conflict.

Adviser’s rubber stamp is real problem


For most students,.today marks
the beginning of advance
registration for the spring semester.
While we may be more worried
about surviving this semester than
planning ahead, the importance of
proper course selection cannot be

If my four years of experience and
observation are any indication, the
typical registration process goes
something like this: the student
grabs a schedule book from the
dean’s office; glances at the




requirements sheet he got when he
began his present major; checks
with his friends to discover those
bunny courses he has yet to take;
arranges his times so he can sleep
late on Thursday and finish early on
Friday; fills out his cards; gets a
rubber stamp approval from his
adviser; turns in his cards; and
breathes a sigh of relief.

In my mind, the real problem with
this situation is the advisers rubber
stamp. Competent advising would
increase student interest in course
selection, help make students aware
of academic opportunities and
generally give students more
meaningful academic experiences.

Howell Hopson, a law school
classmate of mine , wrote a small
treatise on advising for the Faculty
Advisor’s Handbook during his
undergraduate days in the early
'70s. He described the student view
of advising as negative and gave a
thorough example of what the good
adviser should be.

He depicts the good adviser as
someone other than a person who
sees you once a semester, hands you
the requirements sheet and blindly
signs your schedule cards. The
adviser could be one who helps you
design a solid program, keeps you
abreast of new and special op-
portunities as well as the mundane
requirements, cuts bureaucratic red
tape, and goes to bat for you with
higher authorities when necessary.
In short, the adviser could and
should be a student’s internal ad-

Sadly, the situation has not im-
proved as much as it should have.
Advis'ng is still the forgotten func-
tion of the faculty, a fact easily un-
derstood. Good advising takes
time. Time spent on advising means
less time spent on teaching and
research, excellence in which are
more impcrtant in promotion-tenure

Unfortunately, the faculty, for the
most part, continues to claim the
responsibility for advising. As long
as they claim that responsibility,
they should see that someone—
whether themselves or hired per-
sonnel or trained students—delivers
performance commensurately.

Until the current deficiencies are
corrected, students must take the
initiative to get good advising. In
that light, l offer the following
suggestions :

—READ. Read your catalog,
“Special Academic Opportunities
for Undergraduates” (provided by
the Dean of Undergraduate Studies,
329 Office Tower), Student Govern-
ment‘s “Making It," the academic
rules section of “Student Rights and
Responsibilities,” and any other
material you come across. If you

aren't familiar with BGS, topical
majors, CLEP, experiential
education, independent study (two
typrs), and bypass exams, it’s time
to read and find out. Almost all
pertinent academic information is
published If you will read you will
have a good base of information.

~GE’I‘ AN ADVISER. If you don‘t
have an adviser, request one at your
department chairman or college
dean‘s office. If you aren't getting
along with your present adviser,
requst another one. Pursue the
process until you find someone with
whom you can effectively com-

college is required to have a SAC to
help improve its overall operation
and provide student input into its
affairs. These fellow students may

MENT. If your area lacks a SAC or
you need a sympathetic ear or some
general information,. SG will help
solve your problems. And if you
want to get involved in improving

welcome your help.

Ostensibly, you are here to get an
education. To get that education,
you must find out what is available
here to ediwte you (i.e. you must be
advised). This registration period,
shackle your laziness and
aggressively seek the best possible

Over the last two years either the

Obviously I tend to believe the

“all-to-frequent (sic)."

I question, also, your assumption
that all newspapers make errors
with the same frequency as the

Isn‘t it just possible that the

imply that the Kernel is the result of
a sloppy operation; it most certainly
is not. It is, in fact one of the better

In addition, I recognize that the
Kernel staff have mpde many
changes to further increase the
quality of the paper (changes in
format, efforts to provide as un-

ments by readers as possible, and
the like).

Inflation may : test Carter


too early to be sure, but
inflation could raise an early
challenge to Jimmy Carter’s
economic programs next

special anti-inflation
measures to save them.

Lebanese asked to tolerate Arabs

BEIRUT, Lebanon [AP]—
President Elias Sarkis called
on the Lebanese people yes-
terday to tolerate occupation
by an Arab peace force as the
only way to save their coun-

try from further destruction.

“I approach you knowing
full well that some of you at
this very moment are still
carrying arms, and that the
blood of our martyrs and
victims has not yet dried,”
said the taciturr former
banker in a 10-min ..e appeal
broadcast over Moslem and

‘ Christian stations.

“To these I say, enough
bloodshed, enough destruc-
tion, enough wasted energy
and enough lost opportunities
for creation, progress and
growth,” he added in his first

speech as chief of the war-
battered Lebanese state.

possibly as much as 15 per
cent. Higher prices for gaso-
line, heating oil and overall
production costs would be the
inevitable result.

Since unemployment also
increased in October, to 7.9
per cent, it raised the possi-
bility for one adviser that
Carter could be severely test-
ed early in his administration
with both worsening inflation
and an unemployment rate
stuck at nearly 8 per cent.

“If that happens, one has to
consider the full range of
options he has been talking
about on the price side,” said
the adviser, who did not want
to be quoted by name. He said
Carter probably wouldn’t
push Congress for authority
to impose controls if inflation
stayed at around 5 to 6 per
cent, but would want such
authority if price hikes began
to approach levels of 10 per
cent or more.

The Lebanese people have
been awaiting deployment of
an Arab peace force decided
at these summits as the only
way to halt the persistent
battles. But objections from
Christian leaders have held it
up and the fighting goes on.
