Rudyard Kipling
This collage by New York artist Fred Otnes was especially commissioned by Brown & Williamson for its permanent collection of fine art works.
The freedom to choose our livelihood was provided to us long ago. And it was typified by the struggle of immigrants to America in the early 1800's. People like Adam Gimbel, a humble Jewish peddler from Germany, who later founded the country's first department store. And individuals who became industrial giants, like Andrew Carnegie from Scotland, who built one of the largest steel producing businesses in the United States. America had given both of them the freedom. The freedom to choose.
A free individual does not live without choice. A free society does not prosper without it. Consider, if you will, the personal
choices we make every day without intervention from others. Now consider how many we take for granted.
The right to choose is the basis of all freedom political, social, artistic, economic, religiousfor all people. But this right must be protected from those who would chip away at it...either deliberately for personal gain, or innocently for the "betterment" of humanity. It must be protected from those who would make their choice, your choice. These personal freedoms are our legacy as well as our responsibility...to protect and to pass on to those who follow.
Freedom. It's a matter of choice.

Q 3 Joe B. Hall's 10-year record establishes him as one of the finest coaches in college basketball.
While leading the Wildcats to a 22-8 record last year, Hall upped his UK record to 227-74, an average of 22.7 wins per season, to keep ahead of the pace set by his former coach, Adolph Rupp. Rupp averaged 21.5 victories per season over a 41-season span to become the winningest colege basketball coach of all time.
One of the finest compliments Hall has received during his coaching career came from Rupp, who died in 1977.
"A good coach," Rupp said, "is a person who can take good material and win with it. Joe has done that."
Judging from Hall's coaching honors, Rupp was as usual, right on target with his evaluation.
Hall has won such honors as Kellogg's 1978 National" Coach of the Year," three Southeastern Conference "Coach of the Year awards (1973, '75 and 78) and
nomination for Kodak's 1975, '76 and '78 (finalist) "Coach of the Year" awards.
"A good coach," Rupp said, "is a person who can take good material and win with it. Joe has done that."
In 1978 when Kentucky won its fifth NCAA title, Hall was also presented the Rupp Cup (presented to the SEC Coach of the Year by the Birmingham Tipoff Club) and Hall's most coveted personal award, the Dr. James Naismith "Peachbasket" award. The Peach-basket has previously been given to UCLA's John Wooden, Oklahoma State's Hank Iba, Kentucky's Rupp and Red Auerbach of the Boston Celtics.
The 1978 national champs, which had a 30-2 record, became the sixth Wildcat team to win 30 or more games, joining such HI us-
trious company as the 1947 NIT runner-up (34-3), the 1948 Olympic Champions (36-3), the 1949 NCAA champions (32-2), the '51 NCAA champs (32-2) and the '66 NCAA runner-up (32-2).
The Hall Era has produced five All-Americans and seven All-Southeastern Conference players. Kevin Grevey, Jack Givens, Rick Robey, Kyle Macy and Sam Bowie were selected a total of 10 times.
Hall began his tour as UK head coach in rather auspicious fashion in 1973, becoming the first rookie coach in league history to be designated Coach of the Year by his peers.
Gathering such honors has been one of Hall's trademarks during a career that began at Shep-herdsville (Ky.) High School in 1956 and continued through Regis College before he returned to Kentucky, July 1, 1965, as an assistant to his former coach, Adolph Rupp.
An outstanding athlete at Cyn-
(Continued on page 6)
4 ^Tcjk:  A Kentucky Thoroughbred . . .
(Continued from page 4) thiana, Ky., Hall played freshman basketball and one year of varsity basketball in the "Fabulous Five" era at UK before transferring to the University of the South at Se-wanee, Tenn., where he set a school single game scoring record and was considered by Coach Lon Varnell as the best player he ever coached.
After touring Europe with the Globetrotters in 1951, Hall returned to UK in 1955 to complete requirements for his B. A. and later received his M. A. at Colorado State University.
Returning to UK again in 1965 as assistant coach and head recruiter, he was instrumental in developing a running-conditioning program which obviously paid big dividends as the Wildcats capitalized on speed and endurance to advance to the championship game of the NCAA Final Four.
Hall became No. 1 varsity assistant and head freshman coach to Rupp after Harry C. Lancaster was named permanent athletics director Feb. 1, 1969. His record with the freshmen was 60-15, including a 22-0 season in 1971-72.
Hall's   basketball reputation
stretches world-wide and has made him a much sought-after clinician and guest speaker. Last summer during the Wildcats' tour of the Orient, he conducted clinics in the Republic of China and in Hong Kong.
He was guest lecturer for the World Basketball Coaches Con-
gress in July of 1977 in the Canary Islands. Hall considers the chance to speak before some 400 coaches from the international set to have been one of his major coaching honors.
He was a member of the 1975 Olympic Basketball Committee and in 1972, he served under Hank Iba in the Olympic Trials at the Air Force Academy.
He is married to the former Katharine Dennis of Harrison County, Ky. They have three childrenMrs. Mike (Kathy) Summers, Mrs. Rick (Judy) Derrickson and Steve of Lexington.

64 The 1982 UKIT
The 1982 University of Kentucky Invitational Tournament features three teams that made postseason tournaments a year ago and all three teams return most of the players from last year's squads.
The odds-on favorite is tourney host Kentucky, undefeated in five starts and ranked No. 2 in the country below Virginia.
There are, however, legitimate contenders to UK's crown. Rutgers also brings a stainless 5-0 worksheet into tonight's first round game with 3-3 Tulane. Both schools went to the National Invitation Tournament last season and the Green Wave advanced to the third round.
Rutgers is a very capable team. The   Scarlet   Knights defeated
UCLA last year at the Meadow-lands and the top six scorers from last season are back. Coach Tom Young's team from New Brunswick, N. J., will contend for the Atlantic 10 Conference title with the likes of 6-9 senior Roy Hinson at center and 6-6 Kevin Black at forward. Young realizes the tourney will be a challenge.
"Tulane is tough as we all know from their game with North Carolina earlier, and UK may just have the best team in the country," says Young. "Duquesne, of course, is in our conference and we have a 5-5 series record with them."
Tulane, under second-year coach Ned Fowier, is coming off a 19-9 season in which it defeated Memphis State during the reg-

ular season and downed LSU and Nevada-Las Vegas in the NIT. The Greenies also placed second in the rugged Metro Conference.
As Young mentioned, the Green Wave carried North Carolina to three overtimes before losing by two at Chapel Hill in November.
Like Rutgers, Tulane has an outstanding man in the pivot in 6-9 John Williams, averaging 17 points per game. Williams versus Hinson should be a tasty matchup.
Kentucky's first round opponent is Duquesne, also a member of the Atlantic 10. The Dukes are rebuilding under new coach Jim Satalin. Though only 36, Satalin already has nine years of head coaching experience under his belt as the successful mentor at St. Bonaventure.

Dr. Otis A. Singletary, the eighth president of the University of Kentucky, assumed that office in August 1969. He had previously served as chancellor of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, executive vice chancellor for academic affairs in the University of Texas System and director of the Job Corps for the Office of Economic Opportunity.
Dr. Singletary, a native of Gulf-port, Miss., holds degrees from Millsaps College and Louisiana State University.
As president of the principal institution of higher learning in the Commonwealth, Dr. Singletary is greatly concerned with the University's role as a land-grant institution, a "people's university" accessible to all who can profit from education.
In the 12 years he has been president, the University has grown to where there are now more than 23,400 students on the Lexington campus and about 22,-000 students in UK's 13 community colleges, and the University has become one of the major research institutions in the country.
Great strides toward academic excellence have been made during Dr. Singletary's presidency at UK. Two professional schools dentistry and pharmacyhave been ranked among the best in the nation. Departments such as political science, history and mathematics have gained national attention. The UK Library now ranks among the best in the Southeast, and a large portion of the world-wide research related to tobacco and health is now done at UK.
Under Dr. Singletary's guidance, strong efforts have been made to meet the needs of minority groups including the establishment of an office of vice president for minority affairs.
Recognition of his service to the University was evidenced by the UK Alumni Association which presented to Dr. Singletary its Alumni Service Awardan honor rarely bestowed upon a non-alumnus of the University.
He and Mrs. Singletary, the former Gloria Walton, have three children: Bonnie, Scot and Kendall.

630 New Circle Road Lexington, Kentucky 40505 254-5751 UKIT A Wildcat Tradition
By DAN METZGER Kernel Sports Writer
Kentucky's 73-60 victory over LaSalle for the championship in the inaugural University of Kentucky Invitational Championship was the beginning of an era in 1953: an era of UK domination as host of the UKIT.
The UKIT traditionally draws top-notch teams to Lexington and this year is no exception. North Carolina, Indiana, Oregon State and UCLA are among the 56 teams that have appeared in the UKIT. UK has won 21 trophies, the most recent being last season when the Cats beat Seton Hall 98-74 for the title.
The Cats' offensive machines were in full gear last season as the Cats rolled up a season-high 107 points against Jacksonville. In that 107-91 victory, Derrick Hord led a balanced UK scoring attack with 17 points, 11 coming
in the second half. Other double digit scorers for the Cats were starters Melvin Turpin, Dirk Min-niefield and Jim Master, along with strong bench support from Tom Heitz, Chuck Verderber and

Troy McKinley. Jacksonville's Mike Hackett led all scorers with 26 points.
Meanwhile, in the opening game of the tournament, undefeated Seton Hall defeated Utah State 85-77 to advance to the finals. Dan Callandrillo led Seton
Hall with 26 points, while Mike Ingram added 17.
In the championship game, a Jim Master 18-foot jump shot enabled UK to take an early 2-0 lead. Callandrillo countered with a 15-footer, but Turpin's lay up started the UK rout. By the half, UK had rolled up a 31-point lead at 57-26. Hord, Minniefield, Master and Charles Hurt were all in double figures at intermission. Seton Hall, behind Callandrillo's 25 points, was able to slice into the UK lead, but UK pulled away for a convincing 98-74 victory.
Callandrillo and Jacksonville's Hackett were named to the All-Tournament team along with Hord, Minniefield and Master. Hord was the recipient of the Most Valuable Player Award fo the tournament.
"The UKIT's like the SECit': tradition for Kentucky to win,' said UK head coach Joe B. Hall
Dicky Beal and Dirk Minniefield hold the trophy after the Wildcats won last year.
! .1 Since 1953
"It puts extra pressure on us to win because we don't like someone else to come in here and take the trophy away," he said.
Visiting teams have had a difficult time wrestling the trophy away from the Cats. Illinois was the most recent conquerer of the tournament other than UK in 1978. The lllini also won the 1964 title with a 91-86 victory over UK. Dayton, Purdue, St. Louis, Utah and
Hall likes the concept of the UKIT and thinks the experience will come in handy for tournament time. "I like it because there is a tournament atmosphere. It's a good experience to play two games in two nights," he said.
West Virginia have all managed to get out of Lexington with the UKIT championship.
Illinois' title in 1978 came at the expense of Syracuse in the first round and Texas A&M in the final. UK was upset by the Aggies 73-69 in the first round, but rebounded to upend the Orange-ment in the consolation game 94-87.
Hall likes the concept of the UKIT and thinks the experience will come in handy for tournament time. "I like it because there is a tournament atmosphere. It's a good experience to play two games in two nights," he said.
Strangely enough, no UK player holds a UKIT individual game record, even though the Cats as a team hold the majority of the team single game records.
If experience has anything to do with winning the UKIT, the Cats have a definite advantage. They are 50-8 in the tournament, while this will be the first appearance for Duquesne, Tulane and Rutgers.
When asked what UKIT championship was most gratifying, Hall said, "no special onethey're all gratifying."
