Undergraduates may see only two options when
selecting University Studies requirements next fall:
slim and none.

Possible pay—line cuts for professors and teaching
assistants, which has sparked protest from graduate
students and teaching assistants last week and this
week, may decrease class options as well as professor

Cynthia Irvin, who teaches political violence, said
only four new professors will be hired for the Col-
lege of Arts and Sciences next year.

“Professors who either retire or do not receive
tenure will not have their positions filled,” she said.

In a letter to the Kentucky Kernel yesterday,
signed by Z 1 sociology graduate students stated that
the department may strike “two or three sections of

SOC 101” and one upper level course if four TA
positions get cut. Irvin said political science stands to
ose some, but other TA lines may be reinstated.

Michael Tomblyn, a l’h.l). student in toxicology
and graduate school senator for the Student Govern-
ment Association, said the cuts can cause a treacher—
ous slippery slope for undergraduates in terms of
grades and finances.

In large survey classes, which will bear the brunt
of the slash if the board ap iroves the plan this sum-
mer, Tomblyn said students invariably do not
approach the teacher for help, and a size increase can
only augment this problem.

Also, he said, more years in school translates into
more spending, and therefore higher debts incurred
by students.

Return time on exams and assignments will be
negatively affected, Tomblyn said.

“A university's primary function is to educate its
students, and this is just a step away from that,"

'l‘omblyn said.

“1 don't know where the blame falls."

Business freshman Aaron Rausch agreed a
decrease in classes would make an already arduous
registration process even Worse.

“It would make selecting classes a lot harder,"
Rausch said “It would hurt choices."

The 17,000 undergraduates at UK rovide a great
deal of support to the graduate stu ents, and vice
versa. 'l‘omblyn said.

“('l‘As) basically provide the first line of help for
the undergrads so they can learn," he said.

The undergraduates likewise fill resident adviser
positions, TA jobs in the future, and help maintain a
“positive, effectual” atmosphere.

In the swirl of negatives surrounding the cuts,
Tomblyn said this issue gives a normally unorga~
nixed group something to rally around.

“The graduate students are going to come out a
lot stronger."

Rape Awareness Week kicked off last night with a
free self-defense demonstration for women only.

The demonstration, sponsored by RAD, the Rape
Aggression Defense group from UK Police, was the
first of several events over four days sponsored by
Delta Delta Delta and Kap a Alpha Theta social
sororities, Sigma Chi social fiaternity, and the Stu-
dent Government Association.

This is the second year for the event, which con-
tinues today at 8 p.m. with a video and diswssion on
rape at the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority house.

“This year, we’re trying to make it bigger,” said
communications sophomore Jennifer Miller, chair of
the event for Delta Delta Delta.

Miller said rape week’s purpose was to inform stu-
dents and the community of the services available in
Lexington and at UK.

Amy Wagner, the Theta representative and a
journalism sophomore, said she thought the week
helped to “make girls more aware of the situations of
what could occur.”

For example, Wagner said, she saw freshman
females during rush week last semester often getting
drunk and staying over at fraternity houses, where
bad situations could arise.

Rape Awareness Week occurs close to spring
break this year because similar situations can happen
during the break, Miller said.

Tia Rouse, president of Delta Delta Delta and a
dietetics junior, said the week was for both men and
women to learn more about the issues concerning
rape and the dangers surrounding it.

The video and discussion tonight will try to
bridge a gap in perception between men and women,
Miller said.

Jeremy Edge, president of Sigma Chi and an edu-
cation senior, said not to expect male bashing. He
said the week will look at all perspectives.

“It’s not going to be focused on ‘it’s always the
guy‘s fault,” he said.

“It will let the guys know that there are bound-
aries you just don’t cross and things you just don’t

Wagner said the participants in the discussion will
hopefully arrive at a consensus of what rape actually
is because the male's perspective usually is different

Each year a small miracle takes place as
one student’s life touches another, provid-
ing an opportunity to make a difference.

“(1) remember my own conference; the
orientation leaders inspired me to a ply
for it,” said David Johnson, a politica sci-
ence senior and revious student advising
assistant. The ffice of the Re 'strar is
now taking applications for U ’s 1997
Summer Advising Conferences.

Sixteen peo 1e will be hired as student
assistants to he prepare incoming fresh-
men and transfe’r students for their first
semester at UK. Ap lications can be
picked up and retume to 12A Funkhous-
er Building. Applications must be turned
in by the deadline on March 7 at 4:30 p.m.
The conferences run from June 9 dirough
Aug. 1. The positions are open to all stu-

dents. Students should be enthusiastic,
hard-workin and know that they will be
representin K.

“We (he p) orient students to the cam-
pus, make them feel welcome, register for
classes. My personal goal was to make
them feel welcome and to make the
adjustment easier,”Johnson said.

Student assisting is not your typical
summer job. It’s an opportunity to give
back to those who helped you during your
own advising conference.

“Parents don’t want to let go of their
son or daughter and it’s nice to be able to
reassure them that they’re oing to a nice
school like UK,” said pre-p ysical therapy
senior Shannon Milliner.

Assistants help make the early transi-
tion into college life a little easier. Their
responsibilities include giving tours of the
campus, preparing schedules, and hosti'n

Surgeon dies in rain-swollen creek

By Stephen Trlmhlo
Senior Sufi" Writer

Dr. Raymond Neef, UK sports
medicine surgeon, drowned early
Sunday while kayaking in a storin—
swollen creek in east Fayette
County. He was 31.

Neef was kayaking with UK
basketball team surgeon Dr.
David Caborn shortly before 8
a.m. Sunday when the swift,
flooding current of Boone Creek
carried Neef into a tree, said
Robert Chrisman, Lexington fire
department battalion chief.

“His ka ak hit a tree and kind
of just dou led around it,” Chris-
man said. “He was pinned or
trapped in his kayak.”

At 8:07 a.m., the fire depart-
ment responded to Caborn's call
for help. Clark County fire crews
responded to the opposite side of
Boone Creek, Chrisman said.

By that time, however, Neel}

, ’


kayak had cap-sized and he had
drowned, Chrisman said.

It took fire crews from two
counties seven hours to retrieve
Neef’s body, Chrisman said,
which remained pinned inside his
cap-sized kayak against a tree.

“A lot of thou ht went in to it,”
Chrisman said. “ lot of work.”

Finally, the firefighters flung a
rope across the creek, which
forms the border between Fayette-
and Clark counties, and tied it
down on both sides, Chrisman
said. Then, a firefighters carefully
crept along the rope through the
ragin waters of the creek to reach
Nee . He said he couldn’t recall a
kayakin death in Fayette County,
but ad ed the circumstances of
the accident were typical.

“It’s normal for a few daredev-
ils to get out and try these things”
during a rain storm, Chrisman
said. They just don’t have the
opportunity in this part of the
country to shoot rapids.”

Gore denies lie
illegally raised donations

\VASl IINGTON — Vice President Al Gore,
under fire for his aggressive role in campaign fund
raising, acknowledged yesterday he solicited dona-
tions from his White House office but insisted he
did not do “anything wron 7, much less illegal.”
Yet, he said he would never cib it again.

“Everything I did, I understood to be lawful,"
(lore said, 3(l( ing that he made only a few calls in
search of contributions from his office, around the
corner from the Oval Office. It is illegal for federal
employees to solicit money in federal buildings,
but Gore said he was not subject to that restric-

He defended his actions in a high-stakes White
House news conference, markedl different from
his occasional appearances on be alf of adminis-
tration initiatives. This time, Gore was trying to
protect his political honor as looks ahead to the
presidential race in 2000.

Standing ramrod straight, he remained cool
under sometimes argumentative questioning.

Four years ago, U2 ventured
into a disaster of an album entitled
Zooropa. This time U2 breaks new
ground with the desired effect -
an album that not only offers
something new, but puts the
group bac in top form.

Zooropa was s apped together in
a few weeks. It contained over—
done sound effects coupled with
cheap, lame lyrics. There was, for
instance, “Some days you can’t
stand the sight of a puppy.” Not to
mention, “\Vhen you see (daddy)
coming/You’re licking your
lip/Nails bitten down to the
quick/A—ha. sha—la, a—ha, sha-la.”

But much has taken place dur-
ing the past four years, ' '
Passengerr: Original 3 ,
a project released in late 1995 that
taught U2 how to use sound
effects properly. In the Passenger:
project, U2 teamed up with long-
time producer Brian Eno and
newcomer Howie B, who is
known for his work with Soul II
Soul. The result was a brilliant
work (or experiment). Now U2
was ready to tackle a new album.

Pepi, the latest offering from
U2, it stores toda . But don’t
make the mistake o judging Pop
by its first single, “Discothe ue.”
Just as Bono might have een
overdosing on something when he
wrote lyrics for Zooropa, some-
thing similar must have taken
place when he wrote lyrics to this
track. For instance, “You know

ou’re chewing bubblegum/You
know what that is but you still
want some/You just can’t et
enough of that lovie dovie stu f,”
doesn’t quite fit the standard qual-
ity lyrics ofthe rest of Pop.

I ore “Discotheque,” and Pop
sud enly becomes a classic must-
have for any music fan. Songs like
“Gone” and “MoFo” exhibit U2 ’5
newfound success with using tech-
no sounds. While such sounds are
used throughout the album, some
songs contain only hints of the
techno presence. For instance,
“Staring at the Sun” uses sounds
effects in a limited fashion to
enhance the song’s quality.

Again, with the exception of
“Discotheque,” Pop brings forth
some of the best lyrics Bono has
ever written. For instance, in “The
Playboy Mansion,” 3 song about
many of the problems dealing with
America, Bono makes references
to OJ. Simpson, MichaelJackson,
casinos, sex, and even Big Macs.
Bono reveals, “Then will there be
no time for sorrow/T hen will
there be no time for shame/And
though I can’t say why/I know I’ve
got to believe.”

One of the exceptional things
about Pop is that it contains
numerous references to God and
Jesus — more so than in any
album they’ve ever done.

Lyrics such as “Jesus, help
me/l'm alone in this world/And a
fucked-up world it is, too Wake
up, Dead Man," show Bono’s con-
tinuous struggle with his faith. But

Ejection remains
topic among tans

By Chris Easterllnu
\pom Editor

Rick Pitino’s ejection with 0.4
~econds left in Sunday’s 72-66 loss
to South Carolina was still a hot
topic yesterday, as the coach
attacked the situation right off the
hat on his Big Blue Line.

One of the biggest controver—
sies which arose was what Pitino
staid to official Andre Patillo.
Replays showed Pitino shouting
an obscenity to Patillo after he had
been assessed the technical foul.

“You don’t know when you are
on television,” he said. “Obviously
if you’re on television, you don’t
think somebody’s going to be
reading your lips. Needless to say,
l‘in embarrassed about it because I
have to face my own children, for-
getting about other children.”

Another controversy which
came up was whether Pitino —-
who had not been ejected from a
game since a Dec. 21, 1991 con-
test against Georgia Tech at the
i )ipni -— bumped Patillo after the
«.al .

“\Ve never touched,” he said.
“As a matter of fact, when his
hands went up, my tie went into
my nose and I moved back. That’s
the extent of it.”

Position Chill"!

Statin problems with the line-
up that the team has gone with of
late, Pitino hinted at changes in
the starting lineup as the team

heads toward the postseason.

Among the bi gest Chang; is at
the point ar , where ayne
Turner wifiureplace the much-
maligned Anthony Epps in the
starting lineup.

“I’m convinced that he's the
man for the job right now,” Pitino
said of Turner.

Epps -— who has started every

ame except the o ener against
Clemson —— spent a or of time on
the bench during Sunday's loss to
the Gamecocls while the uicker
Turner was guarding SC’s
speedy backcourt.

He got back in the game in
time to hit a couple of key threes
down the stretch to put the Cats in
position to win, but played only 14
minutes, scoring six points. Pitino
did say he wanted Epps to play the
two-guard spot, but to come off of
the bench.

Jared Prickett will replace
Jamaal Magloire at the center
position in another change in the
starting lineup.

Ron Mercer became the second
consecutive UK player to arner
Southeastern Conference glayer

ated Press announced yesterday.

The 6-foot-7 sophomore who
has announced his intentions to
play in the NBA next season, was
named on 11 of 13 ballots for
Player of the Year. South Caroli-
na's Larry Davis was named on the
other two.

But Sunday's loss to the Tar

home court, hurts the Devils’
seeding, which will force them to
travel to Pittsburgh for the first
two rounds.

So here we go:


1. South Carolina’s huge win
over UK on Sunday has to have
some bearing on how hi h the
Gamecocks are seeded. T e fact
that they beat the Cats twice
should propel Eddie F0 ler’s team
to the No. 1 seed in theiiast, play-
ing in Winston-Salem. NC.

Then again, a stumble in the
Southeastem Conference Touma-
ment — particularly if UK wins

'l‘hursday in Memphis, Tenn. -
«gould knock the ’Cocks from this

2. Duke’s situation is much like
South Carolina’s. If the Blue Dev-
ils win the Atlantic Coast Confer-
ence Tournament, a No. 1 seed is
very realistic. They do have “qual-
it i wins" on the road a inst teams
li e Wake Forest, Vi lanova and
Virginia; as well as a home win
over arch-rival North Carolina.

They also can claim to be the
regular-season champs in the
nation’s toughest conference,
