vice chancellor

Sources say decision made

Staff reports

James Kuder, director of student
relations services at Colorado State
University, has been selected as the
University‘s new vice chancellor for
student affairs, sources close to the
search say.

Kuder declined to comment on
whether he had been approached by
the University and whether he had
accepted the offer.

“l‘m not in a position to comment

Pending Kuder's acceptance, the
recommendation by Art Gallaher.
chancellor for the Lexington cam—
pus, will not be official until the

Board of Trustees approves the ap—
pointment at its next meeting, which
isset for March3.

When asked about the decision,
Gallaher declined comment.

Kuder‘s acceptance would end a
search that has taken about seven
months and brought five candidates
to campus to meet with the seven-
member search committee, admin-
istrators, faculty and students.

Several UK officials, including
Jack Blanton, vice chancellor for
administration; Joseph Burch, dean
of students and acting vice chan-
cellor for student affairs; and Larry
Crouch. director of the Career Plan-
ning and Placement Center and

University of Kentucky. Lexington, Kentucky '

Danilenko ended up in the Soviet
Union when his mother, Paula Garb.
married a Russian citizen. She lived
in the Soviet Union with her hus-
band, divorced, returned to the Unit-
ed States and then moved back to
the Soviet Union.

“You have to really live in the So-
viet Union to understand why she
moved." Danilenko said. “She based
her decision on the fact that she
spent two years living in the Soviet
Union with my dad.

"So she knew what she was com-
ing to. And being a single mother of
two kids, there was no way she
could have raised us and got a col-
lege education. So she got a free col-
lege education in the Soviet Union
. . . at the same time she was work-
ing full time so we could have a
comfortable life.“

Because of his unique situation.
Danilenko is permitted to travel
freely out of the Soviet Union. He
also lived in San Francisco until the
age of seven and has therefore expe

Soviet official says
arms race key issue

Staff Writer

Now is the time the United States
and Soviet Union need to find some
common ground with bilateral real-
tions, said Nikolai Smirnov, rep-
resentative of the Soviet Embassy in

Last night, the Soviet diplomat ad-
dressed about 30 students and field-
ed questions in 230 Student Center.

“Bilateral relations between our
two countries have paramount im-
portance,“ Smirnov said.

The nuclear arms race is one of
the most important areas the two
superpowers need to concentrate on,
he said.

Smirnov said the disaster at the
Russian nuclear power plant in
Chernobyl shows what grave conse-
quences can occur when nuclear de~
vices get out of control.

“It’s difficult to imagine what will
happen if a nuclear device is explod-
ed,“he said.

The proposal made by Secretary-
General Mikhail Gorbachev of the
Soviet Union to reduce the threat of
a nuclear war is a step to disarma-
ment, Smirnov said.

”Our leadership has made not
only some kind of appeal," he said.
“but it made some steps (toward
achieving it). and the time of that
proposal is running out."

However, one issue that Smirnov
said is preventing a nuclear
agreement between the two nations
is President Reagan's pmposed
Strategic Defense Initiative.


Smirnov said Moscow is not up
posed to research of the project and
acknowledged the Soviet l'nioii has
been researching a similar project.
but he said the actual deployment of
the “so-called space shield" in space
is “very dangerous from our point of

Landscaper discusses
ways of depicting art

Staff Writer

The Gaines Center for the Human-
ities last night brought landscape
artist Rackstraw Downes, a noted
painter and critic, to UK.

In his lecture, “The Art of Depic-
tion and the Landscape of Today,"
Downes told about 95 people in Pat-
terson Office Tower “what painting
and landscape is all about“ — from
a painter‘s point of view.

After 20 minutes of technical diffi-
culty with his main visual art, a
slide projector, the painter ex-
plained the essence of landscape

Dividing the seminar into two
parts, Downes spoke of depiction, or
how an artist represents images in a
painting and the landscape itself.

“These are subjects which are in-
timately intertwined if you are a
practicing artist," he said.

Downes said the depictive side of
art is an artist‘s idea of mea-
surement, which he uses to arrive at
a focal point for his work.

Using an early 19th century photo-
graph, “The Passing of Arthur" by
Margaret Cameron, as an example,
Dom pointed out how measur—
merits helped calculate the positions
of shadows tocreate a realist effect.

Downes, who has works of art
hanging in such museums as the
Hiishhorn in Washington DC, pro-
vided more than an hour of colorful
slides of his and other landscape art-

Downes also cited abstract art as
a major holder of depictive tech-
nique -—- an element that was made


popular in this type of art dunng the
19405 and ‘50s

Downes flashed slides of works by
artists such as Alex Katz, a giant in
the field of abstract art. Many of
these paintings were of factories and
construction sights.

Downes talked of many of his ovm
works. which include a painting of
125th Street of Harlem in New York
and a water-purifying plant in

All of these works displayed in
some way man interacting with na-
ture, while evoking a feeling of tone

Downes continued his lecture. the
second in the Gaines series of
"Human Structures,“ discussing the
landscape and describing the unique
architecture and how "these differ»
ent shapes createa landscape."

They have, in Tony White, one of the

how it takes a thunderous dunk to

tight rock performance. By the time

Guys. impressed the crowd with
both strong original and mock cover
vocals. Bowers sang the Call's

Michael Been. lead singer for The
Call. can. It was the same outcome
when Bowers belted out Billy Idol '5
“Rebel Yell. "

Bad Guys and Andy‘s brother. spun
in spastic circles on stage as he
captivated the audience with his solo
in "Take me to the Top."

performance. “Everybody was in a
good mood and that's what counts."
