After hearing possible sen~
tences for being found ”guilty but
mentally ill.“ Ulysses Davis lll
picked up his chair. threw it at a
Fayette County deputy jailer and
bolted out of the courtroom.

it took more than 10 minutes
for court deputies to wrestle him
into a holding cell.

Davis' outburst occurred as the
sentencing phase of his trial
began last night.

The jury of eight men and four
women deliberated for 312 hours
before finding Davis "guilty but
mentally ill" to three counts of
attempted man slaughter. two
counts of fourthdegree assault.
one count of first-degree wanton
endangerment and one count of
unlawful imprisonment.

Verdicts were reduced on five
of the original charges.

Condom dispensers coming to U of L

Associate Editor

L” of L Student Government Presi~
dent Doug DeVine can't understand
why any university would be op-
posed to placing condom vending
machines on its campus.

This week the University of Louis-
ville announced that it will put eight
condom vending machines on its
main campus in an effort to promote
safe sex and prevent the spread of
acquired immune deficiency syn-

U of L already has one in the rest
rooms of its student center.

DeVine said the U of L adminis-
tration came up with the idea of
placing condom vending machines
in rest rooms about six months ago.
and after the plan was drawn up. it
was approved by the school‘s board
of trustees.

The board also did it without
drawing much attention to the issue.
DeVine said.

DeVine said the L‘ of L adminis-
tration‘s decision to keep the issue
out of the public light was a wise
one because “it didn‘t attract a lot
of attention and cause a lot of con-

The issue was not even discussed
at the student government meetings.
DeVine said. except informally
among the group's student represen-

The administration “just sort of
did it and we went along with it.“ he
said. “I think everyone pretty much
agreed that we didn‘t want anyone
getting AIDS."

Wednesday. the UK Student Gov-

ernment Association will decide
whether to approve a proposal that
recommends the placing of condom
vending machines in the rest rooms
of six dormitory basements

()ne of the reason some senators
have opposed the resolution is be-
cause they said the L'niversity is
sending a signal to fhc community
that it promotes sexual promiscuity.

But Fred Rhodes. 1‘ of l, dean of
student life. said that issue was not

One reason the placing of condoms

eginning today. the

University of Kentucky will

be headed for three days of
“magic. " It‘s homecoming weekend
and this year’s theme is “Kentucky
— A Magical Kingdom."

Mary Wis Estes. homecoming
chairwoman, said the theme was a
unique idea. The homecoming
committee had a variety of themes
to choose from and decided that
“Magical Kingdom" would be the

Estes added that the main
homecoming event the Student
Activities Board is sponsoring this
year is the "Big Blue Boogie.“ This
street party. on Main Street near
Triangle Park. begins tonight at 8
and lasts until midnight. It will
feature Thumper and the Plaid
Rabbits. along with Doug Breeding
and the Bunch.

This kickoff event is open to the
public and provides a way for
students and alumni to socialize
together. Estes said.

"After the pep rally on
Thursday.“ Estes said. "there‘s a
letdown on Friday. So this is the
time to get students and alumni
involved. “

The “Big Blue Boogie" is
sponsored by the UK Student
Activities Board. WVLK. Victorian
Square. Festival Market and the
Lexington-Fayette L'rban County

If dancing in the street is not
appealing. then students can dance
to music tonight in Jewell Hall.
which is sponsoring a dance in its
lobby from 9 pm. to 1 am.

Denette Smith. residence hall
director of Jewell Hall. said the
dance area will be decorated
according to the homecoming theme
— with shiny moons and stars of

This 10-year tradition at Jewell
has been well attended in the past.
according to Smith.

"At least 75 people have been
there at onetime. and more than
that are in and out all night.” she

The event is open to all students
on campus and ”not just those on
the North side." Smith added.

But the festivities won't end on
Saturday when the scoreboard at
Commonwealth Stadium reads
00:00. South Campus is sponsoring a
Pig Roast on Sunday from 1 to 5

David Wells. Kirwan Tower
chairman of activities. said the
roast has been a tradition for at
least three years.

The Sensations will provide live
music during the afternoon and
Billy‘s Bar-B-Q will supply the food.

Admission for the event is 52.

UK sororities are also preparing
for homecoming tomorrow. Missy
Derifield. president of Chi Omega.
and Vicki Hesen. activities
chairwoman for Kappa Alpha Theta.
said their sororities will be hosting a
homecoming brunch for their
members and alumni.

Fraternities also have parties
scheduled as part of their
homecoming activities. Phi Kappa
Tau member Tim Scholten said his
fraternity is sponsoring a dinner and
dance at the Hilton after Saturday's

The leisurely direction of Bob

Mercury 1 PolyGrami Records

Tough songs comprise Hold
Your Fire. the new LP from the
Canadian trio. Rush.

Neil Pearl‘s lyrics have be-
come more concise and down-to-
earth while providing some in-
sightful social commentary.
Pearl usually comments on social
changes in the face of technologi-
cal advances but he expands to
explore human emotions.

Rush seems to have arrived at
the musical plateau it has been
gradually moving toward. Geddy
Lee and Alex Lifeson have finally
achieved a perfect medium be-
tween their respective instru-

ments. Although his solos are
now more sporadic, Lifoson's
steady guitar work is always pre-
sent. complementing bee‘s quir-
ky bass and synthesizers.

Pat Metheny's latest effort of-
fers some of his melodic style
and some extensions of previous
experimentation. And although it
has shortcomings. it also proves
Metheny. with the help of pla-
nist/co-writer Lyle Mays. can
still be a creative force in mod—
ern jazz.

Metheny‘s flair for sensual me-
lodic phrases are felt in the bal-
lad. "In Her Family." and in
“Distance.“ Mays is given a
chance to further develop his cin-
ematic style.

“Last Train Home“ is the only
track on Still Life (Talking) that
conveys a picture worthy of the
album's title concept. Its driving
percussion paints a lonely image
