North. who was fired last Novem-

lawsuits. Parker dismissed both.

The first contended the indepen-

tutionaliy because he was appointed
by a three-judge federal court in»
stead of by the president or other
executive branch officials.

The second suit argued that
Walsh's position was still unconstitu-
tional even with the Justice Depart-
ment appointment.

Parker said the the overall case
“presents issues of particularly
grave constitutional importance"
because North‘s challenge calls into
question the constitutionality of vest-

unconstitutionality will ultimately be

Arbitron ratings rank WBKY
15th public station in nation

Staff Writer

Hard work and catering to its au-
dience have helped make WBKY-
FM the 15th public radio station in
the nation in the fall Arbitron rat-
ings. said Don Wheeler, the station‘s
general manager.

UK‘s radio station, which is the
oldest universityowned public FM
station in the country. has a "metro-
cume" rating of 8.5 percent.

“That‘s a very high percentage. It
means that 8.5 percent of the people
in the (Lexington) area listen to
us," Wheeler said.

“We're providing programming
the audience likes and we‘re provid~
ing it in a consistent manner," he
said. “It also shows that the people
who work here. . .work hard."

The rating “is one way of measur-
ing success. of seeing how you're
doing," Wheeler said.

“It makes us feel good to know

that there are only 14 other public
radio stations in the nation that are
ahead of us." he said. “it says that
we‘re succeeding with our own audi<

The station will be making some
minor changes, including the addi-
tion of a new age music program
and the Weekend Edition, which is
produced by National Public Radio.
Wheeler said.

Night Wave. which will begin air-
ing Monday. will consist of the mod-
ern, 20th century sound of new age
music. Wheeler said.

The new age sound features jazz.
classical and easy»listening music.
Wheeler said. "lt‘s all different
kinds of music.“ he said, “It‘s usual-
ly quiet and relaxing. it‘s not all
electronic . . . there‘s a lot of acous»

“This station has always been at
the front of presenting new things."
Wheeler said. “We try to anticipate
what is going to happen and do it be-

fore it happens And we usually suc-

“We have been playing new age
muSic substantially for four years
now. and now that we’ve found out
the audience likes it. we'll play it
more." Wheeler said.

This year's Grammy Awards had
a category for the best album in new
age music. Wheeler said. "Every-
body likes it." he added. "There‘s a
huge audience for it and it tends to
appeal to younger people. the 20- to
llU‘yearold age group."

WBKY will eliminate Vanishing
Point because the Arbitron report
showed "that the audience drops off
at the time it comes on and rises
again when it‘s over. " he said

"But you don‘t always have to
change.“ Wheeler said.

WBKY was the third public FM
radio station to go on the air. Wheel-
er said. The station. which is 47
years old. has 50.000 watts and is on
the air 24 hours.

Football coach Woody Hayes dies

Associated Press

COLUMBUS. Ohio — Woody
Hayes, who for 28 seasons ruled his
Ohio State University football teams
like one of the generals he so ad-
mired, died in his sleep yesterday at
home. He was 74.

Anne Hayes discovered her hus-
band’s body at about 6 am, said
Robert Murphy, Hayes physician.
Hayes apparently suffered a heart

Although Hayes' long career at
Ohio State was marked by success
on the field. he also was dogged by
controversy. (hither-st: against foot-
ball officials and the media became
commonplace. and he eventually
lost his job over such a temper tan-

In 1m, his team was diving
down the field in the innit; mo-

ments of the Gator Bowl while trail-
ing Clemson 17-15 when linebacker
Charlie Bauman intercepted Art
Schlichter‘s pass.

On national television. Hayes
punched Bauman, knocking him out
of bounds at the Ohio State sideline.
Buckeye players pulled their angry
coach away from Bauman and later
escorted him off the field.

The next day. Hayes was relieved
of his coaching duties

Hayes later was a frequent speak-
er at Ohio State football practices.
and the university named a street
after him.

“'l‘here‘ve been a lot of great men
fired,“ Hay” told an OSU com-
mencement audience last March.
"MacArthur. Richard Nixon. a lot of

Former President Nixon said yes-
terday, "Like all great men, regard-
less of profusion. Woody Hayes un-

derstood the great forces that
moved the world. I was privileged to
know him as a loyal friend and as
an insightful. wise counselor. “

President Reagan. in a statement
issued by the White Home, called
Hayes a legend in college football.

“Colorful and sometimes even
controversial, he cared deeply about
his players, his team and his
school.” Reagan said. “Nancy and I
extend our deep sympathy to his
family and to the Ohio State Univer-
sity community.“

Hayes‘ 33-year coachiiu career in-
cluded 238 victories and a 0.744 win-
ning percentage. He was college
football‘s fifth-winnimut conch.
compilirg a record of 23—72-10 over
all and moi-to at Ohio State. He
also coached at Denison University
and MinmtofOldo.

would not surprise me if MTSL'

However. the Cardinals do have
an argument, after all they were one
of the teams walking the fence.
They could have been picked for the
tournament. and MTSU could have
been the team left out. But wouldn‘t
one think MTSt' would have a justi»
fiable argument had they been left

After all, they are at 22 wins and 6
losses to Louisville‘s 18-14 record.

schedule of MTSL' as a defense for
his argument.

scheduling quality teams After all
how many Purdues IUs or UKs are
going to schedule an “annual power-
house“ like MTSU'?

Of course, difficulty of schedule
should be a factor, but that‘s all it
should be. if difficulty of Schedule is
taken too strongly, small Division I
teams would be handicapped be-
cause they don‘t have the same
chance to schedule the good teams
they might want to play.

Maybe the NCAA should decide
who plays whom. That way coaches
who have no trouble in scheduling
teams will have no advantage when
it comes to tournament time.

Besides that, the Cardinals were
blown out by most of the strong
teams they played. If they had a
couple more “W‘s“ over those tough
schools, they would have a stronger
case for getting into the NCAA Tour-

Be-bop to hip-hop

Sanborn’s latest more of the same; reggae album bridges hard—core, funk gap

Contributing Critic

(in Fire Stetsasonic/Tommy Boy

“We took a little time/Wrote a
little rhyme/Spent a little money on
some studio time/Came up with a
fresh little funky beat/Added a
scratch to make it all complete./
Now it‘s on wax/So we can relax/
And work a little harder on a little
more tracks/It might add up to a
little more tax/But at the end of the
year. we claim it all back."

Their name might be hard to pro
nounce. but Stetsasonic is one of the
best hip-hop acts in the country.
They sound like early Run-DMC but
harder and they do a little innovat-
ing of their own to boot.

Stetsasonic has finally bridged the
gap between the hardcore minimal-
ism of LL Cool J. and the old school

A Change of Heart David San-
born/ Warner Bros.

Sax player David Sanborn‘s latest
effort, A Change of Heart. is defi-
nitely mistitled.

The Same Old Thing would be far
more appropriate.

For the past few years, Sanborn
has been at the forefront of commer-
cial jazz.

You've probably heard more of his
work than you realize because his
playing seems to sneak into view ev-
erywhere, from several TV commer«
cials to the love theme from “St.
Elmo's Fire."

The fact that he’s popular doesn‘t
make him good.

On occasion, when Sanborn is
playing other people‘s music, he
comes across as a creative musi—
cian. as on the recent collaboration
with Bob James called Double Vi-

But when it comes to recording
solo albums, his playing becomes
stale and unimaginative. He rarely
lives up to his overrated reputation.

A Change of Heart is a simple con—
tinuation of the music Sanborn has
been recording for the past five
years. More than half the tunes on
the album are typical of Sanborn
work: predictable and repetitive.

Producers pour money
into two new musicals
to resurrect Broadway

By MICHAEL Kl'(‘ll\’t'.-\R;\
Associated Press

NEW YORK w Ailing Broadway
is counting on two quick shots in the
arm from “Les Miserables" and
“Starlight Express.” lavish British
musicals that open in the next four
days with a staggering $18 million in
combined advance ticket sales.

“There‘s nothing wrong with
Broadway that a couple of hits won‘t
cure. That debatable bromide had
an element of plausibility last
week." Variety said Wednesday in
its weekly analysis of Broadway box
off ice receipts.

“Les Miserables." based on the
Victor Hugo novel. opened last night
and "Starlight Express,” the An-
drew Lloyd Webbcr roller skating
musical. opens Sunday.

Each grossed more than 3430.000
during previews last week. “Les
Miz" was a virtual sellout and
“Starlight" posted a gross of more
than 90 percent capacity. the trade
paper said. The two musicals alone
boosted total ticket sales on Broad
way by 12.6 percent.

“Obviously. these two shows.
which each week will bring in over
25.000 people and nearly a million
dollars worth of business to Broad
way. have to have an impact." said
George Wachtel. director of re
search for the League of American
Theaters and Producers

“Broadway gets so much more
publicity when you have enormous
hits like this," he said. “As a result.
more people read about Broadway
and then show up at the theater
That‘s the bottom line.“

He compared the situation to the
