Free trade pact still faces opposition

Local NAFTA foes rally downtown;
fewer than 30 turn out for protest


By Erica Patterson
Assistant News Editor


If the North American Free
Trade Agreement passes, business-
es “will leave America like rats
leaving sinking ships," a NAFTA
opponent said yesterday.

The promises and hopes pro-
posed under the pact that would
join the United States, Mexico and
(‘iutada in the largest world trade
agreement are all “pijmlrearnx."
Don Wiggins said.

Wiggins, a member of United
We Stand, America, was one of six
speakers at an anti-NAFTA rally in
Thoroughbred Park. The event,

which attracted fewer than 30 peo-
ple, was sponsored by United We
Stand, a nationwide, nonpartisan or-
ganization founded by former inde-
pendent presidential candidate Ross

Paul O‘Brian, also a member of
United We Stand, said that when he
sees a president lobbying so hard to
get the agreement passed, “there's

something he's not telling the
American people.“
"I want to beliexe my govern-

ment," he said. “1 want to believe
NAFTA will help the United States
and will create more US. jobs."

Rather than being an agreement
to help Americans, NAFTA is

“only an investment plan for busi-
nesses," O'Brian said.

The American people “are gonna
lose" with NAFTA because it will
be harder to find a job, Wiggins
said. The only solution to the prob-
lem is to buy Americamowned and
made products, he said.

Paul Brooks, a city employee and
United We Stand member also said
NAFTA is protection for big busi-
ness. “This thing should be fair and
equal to every part of the world,
(but) it is going to take jobs," he

A war is being waged between
people with the facts about NAFTA
and those who aren‘t so sure about

Alicia Williams is aware of this.

Williams, 23, an African-

With opponents of the agreement

LCC program trying

By Jennifer Wiohor
Staff Writer

More than 40 high school stu-
dents gathered in the Student Cen-
ter on Saturday, preparing to battle
the rain and attend the Fast Caroli-
na-UK football game.

The students are members of
Lexington Conununity College‘s
Upward Bound program. The aca-
demic program. in its second year,
is designed to help high school stu-
dents improve their skills and moti-
vation in order to prepare for col-

The program runs throughout the
school year and includes a six-week
summer program. Eleven high

schools from six surrounding
counties participate.
Vicky Schankula. Upward

Bound‘s director, said, “We hope
we can give them the support and
help they may need."


During the school year the stu-
dents are tutored each week for two
hours at their own high schools.
Schankula said the tutor is a certi-
fied teacher that helps the students
with their areas of weakness.

Also, once a month the students
participate in a Retum Trip, during
which they visit LCC to participate
in workshops and activities.

Saturday was one of these trips.
Students went to the workshops and
then attended the football game.
The UK athletics department pro
vided tickets for the game.

Some students seemed to enjoy
the workshops, whereas others
liked the fun activities.

One student said she enjoys the
entire program.

Woman will rent womb

HOUSTON — Above the high-
way buzz of Houston's traffic reads
this billboard:

“Womb for Rent! Educated,
Healthy, Loving, Surrogate Mother

A phone number follows for the
attorney of a woman who says she
got frustrated trying to get clinics to
make arrangements or national
newspapers to take her ad.

The woman, who wants to re-
main anonymous, said she hopes
some prospective parents will call

tile couple and also meet some of

her fee to complete a doctorate.

“It's the sheer bureaucracy they
have to go through,“ the prospec-
tive surrogate said Saturday.

“She has a good sense of humor,
and the part about ‘womb for rent‘
shows her sense of humor. but the
rest of it is serious," said attorney
Roger Broach.

The woman said she will display
the advertisement — at $750 a day
— for three days.

“They say that if a woman is mo-
tivated by money. then she should
not be considered but why else
would a woman become pregnant if
it weren‘t to satisfy a goal. be it fi—
nancial or anotltcr goal?" she said.

The woman said she had been
considering surrogricy for the last
five years.

Bronch said the woman is seek-

Student, 84,
finds new life
in love of music


By Tyrone Benson
Editor in Chief


The room swayed when she
walked — the rhythmic flow of
hips. legs and arms sending waves
of yesterdays throughout her
cramped, three-room apartment.

She moved like a Louis Arm-
strong scat interlude, strained but
purposeful, telling stories about her-
self as she searched her small living
room for the notebook she uses to
pencil down poems and piano com-

Every stroll across the floor was
an obvious effort for this 84-year-
old music student. though she tried
not the appear feeble.

“I‘ve made the mistake of not
asking people who come to inter—
view me for a copy of their work.“
she said. wading through a pile of
papers on her dinner table.

“I'd like to know what kind of
person I am.‘

Fannie Mae Huggins is. most as-
suredly. a survivor.

Like the jazz that she sometimes
performs at recitals around Central
Kentucky, this retired secondary
school music teacher has managed
to transcend the boundaries of tirm
and trauma.

Fate has challenged this stout,
curly-haired woman on every possi-
ble occasion.

A stroke.

A heart attack.

Thyroid cancer.

The death of a beloved husband
of 45 years.

Huggins often tells visitors that
she‘s “on the way out.“ but watch-
ing her make love to the Hamilton
piano situated in a comer of her liv-
ing room. it is clear that she really
doesn't buy it.

Her instructors at the UK School
of Music wouldn‘t let her leave

Huggins. a participant in UK‘s
Donovan Scholars Program for sen-
ior citizens. has been a part-time
student at UK for more than five
years. and in that time she has
amassed a string of As and a chorus
line of fans.

“I'm family to that school." Hug-
gins says proudly. “They call me a
role model. tm. but I don‘t know
what that's all about."

But jazz instructor Ron Pen

A music professor and associate
director of undergraduate studies in
the school. Pen said Huggins has a
charm that attracts people immedi-

“She had this eccentric yet exu-
berant manner about her." Pen said.
retnembering the first time he sight-
ed Huggins in a Fine Arts Building

What especially caught Penn‘s
eye was the walk.

“She‘s got a swagger in her walk.
some indomitable spirit to her walk
that defies all of the hardship that
she‘s gone through." Pen said.

This spirit. this zeal. is what
makes Huggins such an inspiration
to faculty and students in the
school. he said.

“What usually happens as you get
older." Pen said. “is you get more
dogmatic. more sure of yourself.
But (Huggins) only gets more open.
It’s a wonderful reversal of the ag-
ing process."

Huggins. who was one of the first
black teachers to work in the Fay-
ette County school system after
public facilities were ordered to de-
segregate in 1954. admits that at-

tending school has contributed
greatly to her longevity and that
sharing her musical skill with oth-
ers gives her a sense of purpose.

“I‘ve learned more from her than
she has from me." Pen said.

It could be that Huggins has a
feel for music. particularly jazz.
that many scholars only dream of.

When she was 5. she began toy-
ing with the family piano in (‘edar
Rapids. Iowa. Soon her father
would introduce her at get-togethers
and have her play.

'Ihere was no sheet music to read
at these perfonnances. Huggins
simply had what she calls zut “ear"
for the pieces that she played.

Since then. her ear for music has
become increasingly eclectic. In
February. she performed at Berea
College. moving from Beethoven to
Count Basie.

“Beethoven's my favorite" classi-
cal artist. shc confessed.

Huggins said she appreciates
Beethoven and Basic for distinct
reasons. When she plays Beetho-
ven‘s Sonata No. 3. Opus 10. for
example. a certain control. an ele~
gance. emerges.

“But let me jazz it up for you."
Huggins said. tuming to her qunil-

As she took hold of the sonata.
the pristine movements of Beetho-
ven burgeoned into a “boogie woo-
gie" ostinato reflective of the big
band era

“When I play jazz." she yelled
over the sonata. “I have more
rhythm. I can move to it."

In jazz. she said after cooling her
fingertips. there is passion.

This marriage of compositional
order and spirituality is the nexus
between European and African-
based music. she said.

Herself a conglomerate of ethnic-
ities —— Huggins' grandmother was
Gennan and her grandfather was
black and American Indian —: she
has come to respect the integration
of cultures and music.

Jazz. the first authentically Amer-
ican music form. is the epitome of
this cultural fusion. However. the
blacks who initiated the assimila-
tion —— Jelly Roll Morton. Fletcher
Henderson. etc. —— had a much
harder time working themselves
into the mainstream than their com—

Huggins recalled the days when
blacks had little choice but to ac-
quiesce to the wishes of whites. no
matter what the circumstances.
though she admitted to once break-
ing with that convention at tremen-
dous personal risk.

It was 1933. Huggins and her
husband. less. were boarding a
crowded Greyhound bus in Hender-
son. Ky.. for a road trip. Fannie
Mae was nine months pregnant and
in no mood to feign humility.

So. as she moved toward the back
of the crowed bus. she asked a
white woman who was guarding the
edge of her seat if she would mind
sharing: all other seats on the bus
were taken.

The woman made it lucid that she
did mind. ignoring Huggins‘ second
and third requests for a seat.

“So I sat on her lap." Huggins
said. half-unhelieving of her youth-

ful audacity. “There I was, out to
here and sitting on this little white
woman's lap. The people on that
bus must have had the time of their
lives laughing.“

Huggins' battles today revolve
around UK — specifically getting
there. Strapped by the financial lim-
itations of monthly Social Security
payments. Huggins rarely can af-
ford a taxi ride to campus; she lives
in a senior citizens apartment com-
plex near downtown. beyond walk-
ing distance.

This semester. Huggins has made
it to only a few classes. but she'll
return soon. she promised.

“I‘m a fighter.“

Sloppy game makes Cats Peachy

East Carolina
fumbles late
to give UK win


By Brett Dawson
Staff Writer


The weather was awful, the atten-
dance was pathetic and the playing
conditions were horrendous, but the
UK football team survived a scare
in beating East Carolina 6-3 Satur-
day. and everything turned out rosy
after all.

Better yet. make that Peachy.

Tailback Moe Williams rushed
for 129 yards on 25 carries. and the
Wildcats overcame an injury to
starting quarterback Pookie Jones
as a stellar defensive effort set up a
game winning field goal from
Nicky Nickels.

It wasn't pretty. but it was a win
And a win that all but guaranteed a
bowl bid for the Cats, most likely a
trip to Atlanta for the Peach Bowl
on New Year's Eve.

East Carolina tumcd out to be a
tougher opponent than any of the
Commonwealth Stadium record«

As late as 1:28 remaining in the
game. it looked as though the Pi-
rates and Wildcats were headed for
a tie that would have forced UK to
knock off sixth—ranked Tennessee
next weekend to earn a bowl bid.

But following a missed field goal

UK head coach Bill Curry lauded
his team‘s effort, particularly on the
defensive end, despite the sloppy
play all around.

"If you want to achieve anything
in football, then you must win these
type of games,“ Curry said. “When
I saw Fast Carolina. I knew they
were a great football team. They
proved that today."

The Pirates came into the game
with an unimpressive 2-7 record.
but Jones, who left after only four
plays with a sprained ankle, said the
opponent and score don‘t matter
nearly as much as the magical sixth

“It was a great feeling," Jones
said. “You can't ask for anything
more. Whether we beat them 31-7
or 6-3 like we did. I'm just happ
