Students regain access to campus police files

Staff Writer

College campus newspapers now
have the right to access campus
crime reports from university police
files, according to a ruling made by
the US. District Court for the Dis-
trict of Columbia.

The Nov. 21 court decision pro-

hibits universities from using the
Buckley Amendment as a justifica-
tion for denying campus newspa-
pers access to police records.

In the ruling, Judge Stanley S.
Harris said the Department of Edu-
cation no longer can threaten to
strip schools of federal funds for re-
leasing campus police reports.

Another sexual assault
occurs on UK campus

Staff reports

A UK student was sexually as~

UK Police Chief W.H. McComas.

“We did have another case," of
sexual assault, he said.

The assault occurred Nov, 12

Racial intolerance on campuses growing

Associated Press

lTHACA, N.Y. —— Racial intoler-
ance is growing more acceptable on
American college campuses, say
Jewish and black experts on the
subject who read the warning signs
in college newspapers.

For examples, they point to recent
ads in the newspapers suggesting
the Holocaust was fabricated, and
increasing hate messages in student
articles and even classified ads
aimed at minorities.

“We see a very disturbing trend
evolving here," said Rabbi Abra-
ham Cooper, associate dean of the
Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los
Angeles. “Bigotry has come out in
the open. Using code words like
freedom of expression, they’re try-
ing to buy their way into legitima-

A full-page ad claiming the Nazis
didn’t intend to exterminate the
Jews and calling the accepted figure
of six million Jewish deaths during
World War 11 “an irresponsible ex-
aggeration" has run recently in stu—
dent newspapers at Cornell, Duke,


“As long as he (David Duke) was wearing the
hood, he couldn‘t move forward in American
society, so he put on the three-piece suit... the
bigots have learned the tricks of the trade and
are masking that bigotry behind
middle-of-the-road political rhetoric.”

Rabbi Abraham Cooper,

dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center


Michigan and Nonhwestem univer-

The ads were bought by Bradley
Smith of Visalia, Calif, on behalf
of the Committee for Open Debate
of the Holocaust. Smith is affiliated
with the Institute for Historical Re»
view, an organization dedicated to
proving Adolf Hitler‘s slaughter of
Jews never occurred.

Other schools rejected the ad. in
eluding the University of Pennsyl-
vania, Harvard. Yale, Brown, Rut-
gers, Wisconsin, Georgetown and
the University of California at Los
Angeles and at Berkeley.

But getting such ads into college
newspapers is akin to David Duke’s
ability to gather national support for

his unsuccessful bid for LOUts‘ldn’d
governor, Cooper said.

“As long as he was wearing the
hood, he couldn‘t move forward in
American society, so he put on the
three-piece suit.“ Cooper said of the
former Ku Klux Klan leader. “The

The fine folks at CBS have once
again slapped together a trio of TV
reunion shows for use during
“sweeps" weeks. Last February,
specials celebrating “The Ed Sulli-
van Show," “The Mary Tyler
Moore Show” and “All in the Fami-
ly" cleaned up in the ratings.

What‘s the reason for this? Why
did clips of these 20-year-old pro-
grams beat new made-for-TV mo-
vies and mini-series? ls it nostal-
gia? ls it curiosity about how the
stars have aged? It probably has
something to do with those things.
But more than anything else, it
probably had a lot to do with the
fact that those three series were just
exceptionally well-done. The two
sitcoms were well-written and bril-
liantly acted. The Sullivan show
had the best talent from virtually
every facet of show business. from
opera to Broadway to stand-up


“IIIIIIIIII’lVl-Illil ‘ill 1 “ml

This past Saturday, CBS showed
a “Bob Newhart Show" reunion. I
wasn‘t wild about the choice of
clips. The show was extremely fun-
ny, but they chose to omit the fun-
niest clips. All in all, though, the
show was very entertaining ~ just
as the old series always was.

In addition to that. a second Ed
Sullivan retrospective was shown
last night. Like the first, it showed
an amazing array of talented stars
who graced Sullivan‘s stage. To-
night, a “M*A“S*H" reunion will
be shown. Though I haven‘t seen it,
I can only expect it to be fantastic,
as it’s probably the greatest sitcom

ever broadcast Of course, merely
watching reruns of the show is still
a joy.

I'm glad to see CBS celebrate
such quality programs. Bob Ne—
whart is one of TV‘s all-time great
funny men.

His low-key wit and perfectly dry
delivery have fueled two of the best
sitcoms ever broadcast. His first
program. “The Bob Newhart
Show," in which he played a Chica-
go psychologist, had the same
loopy, oddball humor his second
show always had.

The tragedy is that his first show
is seldom shown in reruns. I
haven‘t seen it in years. Even his
second series, the one set in a Ver-
mont inn, is disappearing after just
a few years in syndication.

Newhart’s sitcoms aren‘t the only
ones seldom seen. Moore's show,
which many critics consider to be
one of the best shows ever, is not

shown anywhere that I know about.
(Of course, my hometown has a
lame cable company.) It’s almost
impossible to find Newhart, Moore.

I never thought I’d live to see the
day when “I Love Lucy” would be-
gin to disappear from the airwaves,
but it’s actually beginning to hap—

you probably could find it on five
different channels at five different
times of the day. Today? Maybe
one a day.

Gonzo art

Associated Press

ASPEN. Colo. ___ ”Gonzo“
joumalist Hunter S. Thomp-
son traded his pen for a paint-
brush - as well as firearms
and explosives w to create a
IZ-piece series of artworks in
cluding a poster of fomier
FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover
riddled with bullets and
splashed with red paint.

Titled “The Director," the
poster is among several doc-
tored depictions of well-
known personalities Thomp-
son has on exhibit at the As-
pen An Gallery, said gallery
owner Mary Grasso.

“The Director" IS adorned
with gold leaf, splattered with
red paint and mounted on a
background of barn wood and
mirror. Bullet holes are fig-
ured prominently on Hoover‘s
head. between his eyes and
under his nose.

“It‘s very artistic," Grasso
said. “He uses paints and a va-
riety of guns and explosives.“

She described Thompson‘s
representation of arch-
conscrvative Barry Goldwater
as “the most gruesome thing
you‘ve ever seen."

“He shot out the eyes and
mouth,“ she said. “It‘s vio«
lent; it‘s scary."

Other subjects include Er-
nest Hemingway. Jane Fonda.
Brigitte Bardot and Ronald
Reagan. Three pieces have
sold for nearly SI0,00() each,
Grasso said.

Thompson gained fame in

for people to get together that
wasn‘t a bar.“

Local protests of the US inva-
sion of occupied Kuwait brought
together an otherwise quiet and
scattered group of area political and
social activists. Their common anti-
war cry led them to discover they
had much else in common, includ-
ing issues concerning the environ-
ment and government, not to men-
tion social and cultural interests.

Participants decided not to let the
momentum die. They organized to
keep active in political issues and
also to encourage others to partici-
pate. They discovered that l/exing-
ton had natural obstacles that made
it difficult to find information con-
cerning activities and ideas outside
the “mainstream."

The idea of a coffee house was

“We wanted to pmvtde an alter-
native media resource center and
network all different kinds of infor-
mation from all over the communi-
ty and the world 7 ~ political. social.
environmental and cultural things
going on." Kuc said. “We also
wanted a relaxed cnvrronment
where you could have a nice cup of
coffee and a good conversauon."

The coffee house will use fur-
nishings and decorations donated
by the community. Construction
work on the former Brookings res—
taurant is being done by New
Morning volunteers using materials
donated by area business or bought
by funds raised by the group.

“It‘s a non—profit organization."
Kuc said. “We rely on the support
of the community and encourage
anyone interested to donate their
time or support."

For tonight's rOck benefit, the
Wrocklage is donating use of the

club and the bands are providing the
music. The cover charge will offset
the cost of opening the coffee

Once the coffee house is opened,
the New Morning group plans to en-
courage area artists to display their
work in the restaurant. Poetry read-
ings, lectures and group discussions
on a wide variety of topics will be
organized. Pan of the coffee house
will be set aside for alternative me—
dia and information sources con-
cerning social, political and envi-
ronmental issues. A community
bulletin board of local activities and
announcements will be setup.

“The coffee house is a mutual ter—
ritory open to infonnation and ideas
ofall kinds.“ Kuc said.

The coffee house. near the inter-
section of Woodland and Euclid av-
enues, will be among several busi-
nesses that cater to younger crowds.
The New Moming group believes
the coffee house will be a unique
anti fitting addition to the district.

“The other small proprietorships
in the area have cooperated with us
because they also see the need for a
different place to go.“ Kuc said. “It
also provides a place for underage
people to go."

The small btit unique business
district already includes bars with
live music. several places to eat. a
health food store and a shop that
sells crystals and other New Age

"In October when we found the
old Brookings Chili Parlor was
available we agreed we liked it.”
Kuc said. “It's near the University.
there are a lot of businesses in the
area with food and live music w
things our coffee shop patrons
might want but we can't provide.
We thought that these businesses
would bring people into the coffee
house too.”

“The idea Is not to compete with

Meanwhile, the latest effort of
the New Morning group is to con-
tinue to raise funds necessary for
the coffee house. The rock fund-
raiser at the Wrocklage tonight is
the first public benefit effort dedi-
cated to the new coffee house.

watch it with any degree of regulari—

conversations? Go places?)

What can you find in abundance

like “Growing Pains," “The Facts of

lousy sitcoms I never liked in the

with no problem whatsoever. All
