Staff and .\l‘ reports

The l'K Board of Trustees has called a
special meeting Sunday to discuss the
ongoing investigation of the school's bas-
ketball program by the NCAA

The meeting, being held in closed ses-
sion, will be UK President David Roselle's
chance to update the board on the investi-
gation, l’iiiversity spokesman Bernie Von-
derheide told the Kernel yesterday. Uni
versity lawyer James Park will be at the
meeting to answer questions about the in

Board member (fap Hershey told WLEXV
'l‘\' in Lexington that l'K President David

Roselle had kept the board in the "dark"
about developments in the investigation.
Hershey said the board wants to examine
Roselle‘s actions up to this point in the in
vestigation. which has been ongoing for
more than a year

Hershey told the Kernel yesterday he
thinks other board members also are con
cerned about the state of the investigation

“I think there‘s some other board mem-
bers that are concerned.“ Hershey said ‘ I
think we all are ver) concerned what the
\\‘holesituation is "

Hut BUT member Larry Forgy told the
Kernel that ltosetle has done his best to

keep the board informed about the \(‘-\\

"That is not fair to President Host-iii“
Forgy said in reference to Hershey‘s com
merits. “I don‘t agree wiihthat “

Poll: small Bush lead

Associated Press

NEW YORK -— A second na—
tional poll has found Democrat
Michael Dukakis closing on
George Bush in the presidential
race, although a newer survey
released yesterday gave the Re-
publican a slightly better lead.

The newer poll, an ABC News
Washington Post survey con
ducted from Sept. 28 through
Tuesday, put the race at 5144
percent with the Republicans in
the numerical lead. The poll of
1,196 likely voters had an error
margin of about four points.

In the other survey, a Harris
poll conducted last week. the
Republicans won support from
49 percent of 1,235 likely voters.
to 46 percent for the Democrats.
It also was a dead heat, given
the threeepoint margin of error.

A Harris poll early last month
put the race a bit wider, at 5044
with Bush and Quayle ahead,
Similarly, a CBS News«New
York Times poll released Tues
day put the race at 48-46, tight
ened from 49-44 later last

The ABC-Post and Harris
polls were released on the night
of Quayle's debate with Sen.
Lloyd Bentsen of Texas, the
Democratic vice presidential
nominee. Like other polls, both
found doubts about Quayle's
qualifications for office.

In the ABC-Post poll, to per
cent said Quayle was qualified
to be vice president, but 33 per—
cent said not; the rest didn‘t
know. By contrast, 67 pertent
said Bentsen was qualified and
just 7 percent said not

Associated Press

gence authorizations signed by
President Reagan in the mid-19805
gave CIA agents latitude to use as-
sassinations in the fight against

Reagan said he was “quite
upset" about a published report
saying there had been such author
rizations and said his 1981 execv
utive order prohibiting assassina
tions “continues until this day “

White House Spokesman Marlin
Fitzwater acknowledged that lan~
guage in two intelligence findings
in 1984 and 1985 subsequently was
rescinded by the National Security
Council. though he wouldn‘t say

Reagan's spokesman took strong
exception to a Washington Post {er

in the earlier documents amounted
to a “license to kill" for intelli

Fitzwater suggested that the
Post story was aii attempt to em
barrass the administration during
the election campaign But he
stopped short of saying precisely
that, telling reporters to "make
yourown judgment ”

"i think this is an extraordinary
cheap shot It‘s not true." he said

The Post‘s executive editor, Ben
Jallllll (I, Bradlee. deflected the
White House remarks, saying. "We
stand by our story and we hate no
further comment ”

UK alcohol policy
should have room
for a student pub

The prevailing question after receiving UK‘s compre—
hensive alcohol policy Monday was ~ “Why did we have to
wait lw 0 years for this"

After all. we had been operating under the “prohibitive
policy” informally for two years.

We suspected after the first alcohol committee‘s recom-
mendation of a “liberal" alcohol policy was denied that the
administration wanted the prohibitive one.

Those suspicions were all but confirmed when we heard
nothing from the administration after a task force recom-
mended the sanie thing last semester.

The administration. quite simply, was looking, hunting
and searching for some body or committee to give them
what they wanted.

Although an alcohol policy allowing students 21 or over
to drink would not be any harder to enforce and wouldn‘t
necessarily create liability problems, the administration
has stuck to those as primary reasons for implementing
the prohibitive policy

The real reasoning all along has been concern about re-
action across a state that is becoming increasingly conser—
vative in its views toward alcohol.

Nevertheless. the “new” alcohol policy potentially does
allow some leeway to students.

()ne provision of the policy creates the possibility for al»
cohol being allowed on University property, subject to ap-
proval from the appropriate chancellor or vice president.

That‘s all a bunch of fancy administration lingo for say-
ing that a student pub in the Student Center is not out of
the question

Evidently. some students and administrators have al-
ready discussed the idea. judging from comments made to
a Kernel reporter in Tuesday‘s story about the policy.

Student Government Association President James Rose
said the idea has been discussed. and that's a step in the
right direction

The University of Louisville has the very successful Red
Barn. which attracts national music talent and provides
students a place on campus to socialize. This is safer than
driving the streets in search of bars

Similarly. Western Kentucky University has a night
club establishment. Although it does not serve alcohol. the
club does give students a place to dance and socialize.

l' of L's Red Barn is funded out of their student governs
ment's budget. which is sizably larger than ours.

Students at UK. however. probably would be in favor of
increasing SGA's budget through student fees in order to
fund a similar establishment

Whether l'K has a prohibitive or liberal policy is really
pretty irrelevant unless you're strictly arguing principles
and priviliges. because students are going to drink in their
dormitory rooms no matter what the policy is.

That just makes our current policy. no matter what the
motive behind it. purely cosmetic

A campus pub at the Student Center. though. is some
thing substantive and reasonable It would provide stu-
dents with a place to go on campus instead of driving the
