This collage by New York artist Fred Otnes was especially commissioned by Brown & Williamson for its permanent collection of fine art works
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.
A free individual does not live without choice. A free society does not prosper without it. Consider, if you will, the personal
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.
Freedom. It's a matter of choice.

5999 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.

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.

 Today's Game
The south's greatest basketball rivalry resumes this afternoon before a packed house at Rupp Arena and a big television audience.
Kentucky and Tennessee have been going at it since 1910 and the best of the two has historically gone on and won the Southeastern Conference. In the 50 years of the SEC, UK and UT have either won outright or shared in 37 titles.
The winner of this border war in football gains possession of the "Beer Barrel." In basketball, the victor many times has claimed the conference championship trophy.
Fourth-year coach Don DeVoe has had significant success against the Big Blue. He started off with a bang in 1979 as his first Volunteer squad defeated the Wildcats twice in the regular season and again in the heart-stopping finals of the SEC Tournament.
Since then, the two teams have split, each team winning at home. Kentucky must keep that cycle intact today since the Vols eeked out a two-point win at Knoxville in January.
The big story that night was Melvin Turpin, who shredded UT's man-to-man defense for 42 points. The "Big Dipper" hit 18 of 22 shots from the field and six of eight from the free throw line in one of the finest performances in
Kentucky basketball history. Willie Burton seemed to have the most "success" against Turpin in that game, but the term should be used loosely.
As was the case with most of UK's losses during that time, turnovers did the 'Cats in. Kentucky lost the ball 18 times to Tennessee's seven. UK's floor game is

usually much better in Rupp than at Stokely Center.
Tennessee starts four juniors with senior All-America Dale Ellis, including long-range marksman Michael Brooks, who had a big bucket in the closing seconds against UK at Knoxville.
The Vols have two major problems coming into today's game: depth and the inability to protect leads late in the game via the four-corner offense. The 45-sec-ond clock eliminates stalling and DeVoe admits the Vols have had a tough time adjusting.
Turpin will assuredly be the object of Tennessee's defensive affection, but it will be surprising if the Vols open up in anything but a man-to-man. DeVoe would rather take castor oil than use a zone, but he's been known to use it on occasion.
LAST MEETING: (Jan. 31 at Knoxville)Ellis and Brooks combined for 40 points but Turpin had 42. It still wasn't enough as the Vols won, 65-63.
SERIES HISTORY: Although Tennessee has had more success against UK than any other SEC school, the Wildcats still hold a commanding 101-51 advantage.

I0 Fayette Mall is the place for the Working Woman, Like Mel
Because I'm a working woman, I have precious little time to spend on shopping, and Fayette Mall understands. There are over 80 great stores including Sears, Stewarts, and Shillito's, full of quality products and the latest fashions all in one location. Fayette Mall is convenient to where I work and I always get fast, courteous service. And when I need a quick lunch or dinner, Fayette Mall has everything from salads to steaks. Reasonably priced too, just like everything else I find at Fayette Mall, the best products at the lowest possible cost. That's value.

Mon.-Sat. 10-9, Sun. 1-5 Administration
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 13 years he has been president, the University has grown to where there are now about 23,000 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.
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 chancellor 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.
Athletics Director
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
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
