Kentucky Kernel Editorial



good state university that granted diplomas. But after a decade of strong leadership. innovative
plans and a lot of sweat, it is on its way to becoming a great University.

Unfonunately, the events that have transpired since last November concerning UK’s presidential
search have left many wondering where UK stands as it approaches a new century.

To many. the presidential search has been less than a serious search for a strong academic leader and
more of a way to dole out patronage and repay political allies.

Therefore, we believe UK should reopen the presidential search, Charles Wethington should remove
himself as a candidate for the presidency and Foster Ockerman should resign as chairman of the UK
Board of Trustees.

It is necessary that faculty, staff and students be willing to show their commitment to a fair and Open
search by holding a Universitywide strike.

The state’s flagship university deserves better treatment in selecting its leader. Many have given up on
the presidential search by calling it a done deal. But by resigning ourselves to that scenario, we not only
fail ourselves, but also the future generations of this state.

On Dec. 28, UK’s Board of Trustees appointed Wethington interim president over strong objections
from many. The trustees allowed the interim president to be a candidate for the presidency. Their refusal
to take action planted a seed of suspicion that the search was stacked in favor of Wethington.

Wethington is a friend of Gov. Wallace Wilkinson —— who made his dislike for former President David
Roselle no secret -— and Ockerman, who is chairman of the Board of Trustees and the Presidential
Search Committee. was appointed by Wilkinson.

When UK began looking for a president. Ockerman promised the University community and citizens
of the commonwealth that a fair and open search would be conducted to find a replacement for Roselle.

However. he has done little to reassure us that the presidential search is not a thinly veiled attempt to
railroad Wethington into the Administration Building. To many. the engineer of the train is Wilkinson,
who has been a disgrace to this state since he entered office.

It should be little surprise to many. then. that the quality of candidates for president has been substan-
tially worse than what the University had in 1987, when it was looking for a replacement for Otis A. Sin-

This week, the UK community will have the opportunity to meet the two individuals the presidential
search committee chose as finalists.

The University of Kentucky is at a crossroads. For years, it was considered by many as simply a

Presidential Search



While both candidates — reported to be Wethington and Peggy Gordon Elliott ,_. may have strong
credentials. neither has impressed faculty nor students as individuals with the proper qualifications to be
UK’s 10th president.

Today, some faculty members will consider a resolution that calls for the presidential search to be reo-
pened — and the UK faculty and faculty representatives to the Board of Trustees to withdraw their sup-
port of the search.

This is a step in the right direction.

The faculty have the academic interests of the University as their primary concern. something the
search committee lacks. This concern is shared in the minds of students who come to UK seeking the
best education the state has to offer.

We are not persuaded by those who argue that reopening the presidential search may cause too much
hardship for the University. When one considers the long-term repercussions of selecting a new univer~
sity president. any short—tenn difficulty in finding a top~notcb candidate becomes trivial.

lfthe resolution passes. faculty must be willing to back up their words with strong actions to derail
Wilkinson’s political patronage express. or the resolution will not be worth the paper on which it is writ-

lfthe presidential search is not reopened, the University‘s faculty should stage a walkout. The move
would require a good deal of courage, but we feel that it is the only way for faculty to underscore the im
portance of the University’s next president.

Students and staff also should support the faculty’s action by demonstrating their strong disapproval ot
the way the presidential search has been conducted. similar to concern they showed for the LTniy'ersitv's
future last November in front of the Administration Building. ‘

Any new presidential search should be free of the political pressures that wrecked the current search.

Dream over,

Cats deal
with reality

It was a nice dream.

The UK football team was in it. As a matter of
fact. the duration of the dream revolved around the
team. And then there was a take—charge kind of guy
with a bullhom
who was going
to save the team
from terminal

The team was
suddenly going
to play like the
San Francisco
49ers. And I remember the guy with the bullhom
was the center of attention and excitement And
there was all this like glorious music —— I think it
something by Jon Bon Jovi -— and it seemed to
make everyone confident and sure that the football
team would be a smashing success.

Yeah, and newspapers played a big part in the
dream. They like gave the dream some semblance
of reality. Intensified it and tried to make it all al-
most like, fact.

All the the sports writers were writing about the
guy who had just taken charge as if he were Christ
himself. Like Christ decided that football was the
channel through which He could best serve human-
kind. In the dream, I think He really was. But it
was a dream, and I’m not real sure.

Anyhow, it was a really good dream. It just kind
of rolled along smoothly. Just kind of merrily roll-
ing, rolling —— and then BAM! Interceptions and
fumbles and downright miserable play came into
the picture. Woke everybody up with a sickly start.
It wasn't even the dream turning into a nightmare;
the inept UK performance was really happening. I
mean they were really bad. Perhaps one of the sor-
riest performances in the last few years.

It was a mean awakening.

And now all that is left is bits and pieces of the
dream in our collective memories to contrast with
this nasty reality.

I mean nobody’s ever been happy about UK
football before, or at least not since I can remem-
ber. And in this dream, everybody smiled when
UK football was mentioned. The man in charge
was going to lead us into the land of pro-style play,
followed by bowl games and then peace and pros-

That isn‘t going to happen. UK will be lucky to
get better than an even record. There will be many
occasions for shaking your head in disbelief at the
sheer stupidity of particular mistakes made by
UK’s players.

The fan’s satisfaction wrll come from watching
the team grow and progress throughout the season.
It will be particularly interesting to see how the
players handle the after effects of the Meadowlands

Despite the utter clumsiness of the Cats, there
were some bright spots.

Take the special teams. Three blocked field
goals. Could be among the best special teams in the

Randy Holleran. He was fired up throughout the
game, even during its most bleak moments. The de-
fense, which was simply overworked throughout
the game, has a leader in Holleran.

There were more dark spots. though.

The offense was impotent.

The play at quarterback was idiotic. Six intercep-
tions shared evenly by starter Freddie Maggard and
back-up Brad Smith. One ridiculous fumble (Mag-

The offensive line simply couldn’t get the job
done. Craig Walker and Al Baker, though no super—
stars themselves, had nowhere to run.

Coordinator Tommy Bowden will have to rise
and shine this week. His hands will be full trying to
figure out how to help his stumbling, bumbling of—
fense execute.

But it will take at least a show of some kind of
sense by his quarterbacks to bring them back up to
a respectable level. The interceptions took little ef-
fort by the Scarlet Knight defense. Maggard and
Smith were very, very nice to the opposing team.
The Rutgers‘ defensive backs were being pleasant-
ly surprised with footballs left and right.

It was ugly. Damn near disgusting.

But, then again, waking up sometimes isn‘t easy.

‘Gentleman’ ruggers take sport seriously


Stall Writer

Imagine playing football without shoulder pads and

Imagine a faster, leaner game, featuring almost con-
tinuous play, demanding brains as well as brawn. Ima-
gine a gentlemen’s sport played by barbarians. Imagine
then ——~ UK rugby.

“It’s a pretty festive atmosphere," UK learn captain
Tim Keller said. “And we‘re not out to kill anyone."

Keller, who describes himself as a “mean ugly pack
player," said rugby is the rage in Europe.

“It’s the only contact sport you can play competitive-
ly the rest of your life," Keller said.

Rugby’s origins stem from an intramural soccer game
played at Rugby School in Rugby, England. In 1823,.
American football developed from rugby, and the two
games are similar in many ways.

Tony Schwab, a former UK player who now suits up
for Lexington’s city rugby team, the Blackstones, said
rugby is more complicated than American football.

“Offenses and defenses are not defined in rugby,”
Schwab said. “Your role as a player is always chang-
ing. You have to think a lot. As a result you learn some-
thing new every game.”

Despite rugby’s traditional British image, UK coach
Erik Peterson stresses that rugby is a sport for everyone.

“I’m always teaching,” Peterson said. “It doesn’t
matter how small a player is - there's always a position
open, everyone will get into a match.”

A 15-player rugby team has seven backs and eight
fowards. Each team tries to score by kicking, passing or
carrying the ball until they can kick it over the oppo-
nent’s goal resulting in three points, or by scoring a try.
which is worth four points, by making a touchdown be-
hind the opponent’s goal line.

UK rugby president Jeff Mackey reports that since
I967 the Cats have enjoyed 20 winning seasons.

Although UK‘s I990 roster consists of many first
and second year players, the Cats are a still a tight—knit

“Rugby players are members of the world’s largest
fraternity," Peterson said. “It’s a melting pot, a social
sport,... new members are always welcome.

Mackey said each spring the rugby team holds a
“benefit party" to kick off their annual Bluegrass Invita-
tional Rugby Toumment. The benefit and the touma—
ment raise funds to cover the club’s expenses. The Uni-
versity will match all funds the club generates up to

UK golfers to hit road with energy, talent


Davis, Leroy expected to lead young team



Contributing Writer

With the fall golf season right around the comer. UK men‘s coach Tom Simpson
faces the challenges of a young squad and a tough tournament schedule that will have
his team playing across the United States.

Simpson is preparing his 1990 Wildcat golfers for a fall season which will begin
Sept 6 in the Colorado University Invitational Tournament.

“I’m anticipating a heck of a fall (season)," Simpson said. “We'll be taking our
guys to Denver, Chicago, and some of the best tournaments in this area.”

After opening their fall schedule in Colorado, the Cats will play in a Chicago tour-
nament at Cog Hill Sept. 21—24. Three days later, the team will participate in the 25-
team Northern Intercollegiate Tournament at Lafayette, Ind.

Those toumamcnts, Simpson said, should be a good warm-up for the regional
matches at Eastern Kentucky University and the Kentucky Intercollegiate Touma-

“It‘s going to be a really tough schedule," Simpson said. “But I think ll wrll help to
make us a better team in the long run. These are tremendous invitations that Will give
us a chance to play with the best teams in the country.

“With all the travel, though, the guys are going to miss some classes. I’ve stressed
the importance of going to all their classes while they are on campus. They're all
good students, so I’m sure that won’t be any problem.“

With no seniors returning from last season, this year's team is young, but far from
inexperienced. The Cats lost only one payer, Greg Layman, from last season.

Juniors Rob Davis and Tim LeRoy have been named cocaptains for this year‘s
team and after improving this summer, Simpson has high expectations for both men.

Davrs, a native of Lakeland, Fla, won the Lakeland Classic this summer wrth a ten-
under~par performance. He also won the Florida State Amateur Toumament and qual-
ified for the US Amateur.

“To win those toumaments in a state like Florida is a tremendous accomplishment,”
Simpson said. “He's averaged about a 72 this summer and that'sjust excellent."

“I think I've had a good summer,” Davis said. “I'm looking forward to this fall sea—
son because it looks like we've got a pretty good group of guys. I‘d just like us to win
at least one toumament this fall. We haven't won one in a long time."

LeRoy, from Lexington, averaged a solid 75 this summer and looks forward to
sharing the captain responsibilities.

“It means a lot to me being selected (as a co—captain)," LeRoy said. “I think I can
help some of the younger guys to come along and get adjusted to the system.“

Brett Bronski, Mark McIntire, and Adam Horwitz, all juniors, should compete for
spots on Simpson’s live-man tournament teams.

Simpson said that sophomores Brad Kurt/.. Swain Beard, Marshall Butler, David
Gordley, and Chris Liner all have the potential to be outstanding golfers.

“Chris Liner had an incredible summer," Simpson said. “He averaged a 72 and
qualified for the U.S. Amateur. Marshall Butler has shown a lot of potential. Those
are guys we look forward to leading us when the NCAA Championship comes to
Lexington in I993."

There will be two newcomers to the Wildcat squad this season.



Junior Tim LeRoy keeps his eyes on tthe ball. LeRoy, who averaged a 75 this
summer. shares captain duties of UK‘s golf team With [UHlOl Rob Dayts.

During World War 11, German
museums, libraries and churches
packed up their most valuable
works and shipped them off for
safekeeping from Allied bombing
raids. Later, many treasures were
again moved by the Nazis, to caves
or salt mines, to hide them from ad-
vancing troops.

The destruction of war, the multi-
ple moves, incomplete or missing
inventories, and plundering occupa-
tion troops all conspired to conceal
the fate of some of the treasures.

Art historians say troops from
both the West and the East moved
Gemian anworks out of the country
after the war.

In addition. fires were often re—
ported in an repositories. Some his-
torians question whether some of
the fires actually occurred or wheth—
er they destroyed everything that
was claimed to have been lost.

“I fear that much of what was of-
ficially burned is still somewhere.”
said one museum researcher, who
asked not to be identified by name.

In addition to individual instances
of plundering, many art historians
say some treasures were removed
with official sanction for use as cul-
tural reparations.

Although that policy was later re-
jected in the West and many objects
were returned, historians say it is
impossible to tell how much of
what was taken was given back.

”The problem IS that this was
done by forces who were operating
like the intelligence forces, without
documents or with documents that
were not declassified up to now,"
the museum official said. “It was a
problem of all four of the Allies.”

“For many years these things were
considered lost anyway because we
had no information whatsoever,"
said a government source in Bonn
who spoke on condition of anonymi-

“You could say this is one of the
last fields of really finishing with the
consequences of war.”

In July, government and art repre-
sentatives from West and East Ger-
many agreed to establish a Berlin-
based dataka to pool information
from museums, churches and librar-
ies on missing an and its last known

Klaus Maurice, director of the
West German Cultural Foundation
of the States, said the list could be
completed in three years.

“We will make a list of what was
lost, not what must be found,” he
said. “We don’t want to give advice
for police.”

Improving East-West relations
and recent finds have already fueled
hopes that more could follow.

In a Texas court, an East German
church, financed by West Germany,
is fighting the heirs of a US soldier
who the church claims made off
with a cache of priceless objects hid-
den in a mine. US. forces occupied
the Quedlinburg area, 120 miles
southwest of Berlin, in 1945.

The treasures include a silver, ivo-
ry and gold reliquary from the 9th or
10th century, a 10th-century Byzan-
tine rock-crystal flask and an ivory
comb inlaid with precious stones.

An an investigator working with
the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foun-
dation tracked the Quedlinburg
treasures to Whitewright, Texas,
about 60 miles north of Dallas, last
