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

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.

'  ' /' 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 illus-
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)  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.

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.
Continued growth in practically all phases of UK athletics has been a hallmark of Cliff Hagan's seven-year reign as Wildcat athletics director, with fine attendance at football and basketball games, increased attendance at Lady Kat basketball and men's baseball, and a steady up-grading of facilities.
Recent physical improvements include a new baseball grandstand behind home plate, a new athletic learning center for the academic advisory staff, new locker rooms in the football dressing rooms and construction of a new equipment shed for track.
On the institutional side of the ledger, the University was host
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.
to both the men's and women's Southeastern Conference basketball tournaments earlier this year and will host the NCAA Mideast Regionals in 1984 and the NCAA Championship Finals in 1985.
Hagan, who has seen and overseen vast improvements in all phases of the UK athletics program.since returning to his alma mater as assistant athletics director in 1972, has under his command a total of 20 sports ranging from football and men's basketball in Level I, to women's basketball in Level II, and 17 sports in Level III.
On the personal side, Hagan received one of his highest individual honors in 1978 when he

The mood is definitely upbeat as Kentucky opens its 80th basketball season tonight against the Butler Bulldogs.
Gone for the most part is the helpless uncertainty that surrounded the status of Sam Bowie last season. Bowie's status is still very uncertain but the Wildcats tied for the SEC crown and won 22 games without the 7-1 All-American in the lineup in 1981-82.
Kentucky appears capable of more this time around and Coach Joe B. Hall agrees:
"I definitely feel we should be a better ball club this year," Hall said before preseason practice began in October. "Another year of maturity, plus the experience we received on our trip to the Orient this summer has helped us. I think it could be a very good year for us."
Experience is on Kentucky's side. The 'Cats started three seniors and two juniors in the
89-86 loss to the rugged Soviet Union National team last Sunday.
"I saw a lot of good things out there," said Lexington senior Dirk Minniefield after the Soviet Union game. "The big men hit the boards. The man-to-man defense was better than a year ago. We're definitely better."
"Another year of maturity, plus the experience we received on our trip to the Orient this summer has helped us. I think it could be a very good year for us."
Joe B. Hall
So is Minniefield. The speedy guard hit six of 10 from the field en route to a 16-point output and he contributed 12 assists in an outstanding performance. Coach Hall said last year Minniefield had
the opportunity to be the best guard in college basketball and the 6-3 Lafayette High product may be ready to fulfill that prophecy.
The Soviet Nationals' coach, Alexander Gomelski, had some very complimentary things to say about the Wildcats.
"This is the best game for my team because Kentucky is the best team on the tour," Gomelski claimed after the close win. "The big guy (Melvin Turpin) is the best center on the tour. He played better against us than (Ralph) Sampson.
"Sampson is a good passer and rebounder, but this boy is a good shooter, too. Joe Hall runs a very nice fast break and a good defense and he has his players in good physical condition."
Hall played all 12 available players in the Soviet game, including freshmen Kenny "Sky" Walker, Todd  May and Roger
Snior guard Dirk Minnielield is primed and ready (or an outstanding season.
Junior Dicky Beal is coming into his own at the point position and will team with Minniefield to give UK an exciting combination.

Kentucky will need all the help it can get inside with Bowie out of the lineup. Junior Tom Heitz (33) has added strength to his 6-9 frame and his aggressive play will aid the Wildcats in the coming battles.
Arvidas Sabonis.
"The freshmen were a little tight playing in front of the big crowd here for the first time," Hall said. "I thought it was excellent experience for them."
On paper, tonight's game doesn't appear to be too tough an opener, but Kentucky's December menu of Notre Dame, Vil-
lanova, Detroit, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas and the UKIT will be a good acid test for the coming SEC wars.
"As the SEC improves, our schedule gets tougher and tougher," says Hall.
Based on early indications, the Wildcats are ready to meet the challenge.

It's a long way from a sick bed in Wisconsin to a graduate social work practicum in human development at the University of Kentucky.
For Maxcine Peterson, however, who was in a severe car accident on New Year's Day in 1981, the sick bed was the catalyst that spurred her interest in mental retardation.
"I had a retarded friend who visited me in the hospital and who also had been in an accident. She had been very bright before her accident," Ms. Peterson said.
As one of 47 university affiliated facilities nationwide, UK's program in human development sponsors activities and programs intended to address adequately the needs of individuals with developmental disabilities, such as mental retardation, cerebral palsy, learning disabilities and epilepsy.
One of these programs, says Dr. Kenneth Olsen, associate director of UK's program, is an assessment of the disabled child or adult to learn his physical and mental needs and to put him in touch with community agencies in or near his hometown that can assist him. The costs of assessments usually are paid from federal funds and occasionally by the family.
The individual (most often a child) and a parent (usually the mother) come to Lexington and stay at a motel at night. During the day, the child is taken to the UK Medical Center for physical therapy and audiology evaluations and a visit to a physician and a dentist.
He also receives psychological and speech and language evaluations in the UK College of Education and an occupational therapy assessment; and a social worker talks with the mother to get the family history.
This is where Ms. Peterson's job starts. Under the supervision of Mary Ockerman-Elder, a professional social worker, Ms. Peterson talks with the parents about their problems and concerns at home. She also finds out what the parents want discussed at the case conference which is held at the end of the visit.
"Sometimes it is very difficult to work with the parents because they often have a hard time accepting the fact that their child is labeled retarded," Ms. Peterson said.
"If a child has autistic problems I'll tell them it is just a label that is needed for the child to obtain help," she added.
"If the child is young, I often feel there is hope for improvement," Ms. Peterson said.
Ms. Peterson is excited about a new program at UK called arena assessment. Used only with young children, all of the professionals evaluate the youngster at the same time while sitting on the floor with the child.
Ms. Peterson thinks that the interaction between the professionals and observations of parent-child interactions are helpful to the assessment.
Ms. Peterson said she came to UK because she had written to 20 or 30 universities about their graduate social work programs and UK was one of the few who answered her query and "was the nicest" in its reply.
"The UK College of Social Work has been most helpful and I am very pleased," she said.
A graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, where she majored in criminal justice, Ms. Peterson served a summer internship in 1980 as a juvenile probation officer. "Four weeks into placement, the supervisor quit his job and I took over his position for the summer," she said.
18 ^lus> Maxcine Peterson, left, demonstrates how a social worker talks with a parent in the "assessment" part of the Human Development Program.
She later hopes to work in the criminal justice-mental retardation field but first of all she will join the Peace Corps after she receives  her  Master of Social
Work degree in May.
"I think the Peace Corps is challenging and exciting and I'm willing to go anywhere," Ms. Peterson said.

Each day we begin a renewed dedication to practice the main fundamentals in the game of business. . . to provide our customers with the best possible products in the most cost-effective manner. Our customers are the bricks of the foundation upon which our exceptional growth has been built.
Like the Kentucky Wildcats, Ashland
and Valvoline have developed a winning tradition over the years. And as we approach each new "season", we realize that the battle to win will be tough. But we are ready for the challenge.
