today ——— Kentucky football rises another notch
as fourth-ranked Penn State falls 24-20


yesterday from weekend storms and
baby twisters which injured six persons,
touched off sane evacuation and caused
property damage.

The National Weather Service blamed
a tornado for three miles of the eight
miles of damage in northeast Fayette
County. Hit hardest in the area was the
Lann-Mark Farm, wha'e owner Russell
Michael estimated his damage at

He said three barns were destroyed
and the roof ripped from a house. There
were no injuries to thoroughbreds
quartered at the farm, he said.

Flooding and high water was
widespread in Jefferson County, par-
ticularly at an apartment complex in
Jeffersontown. Seven families were
wasted out of their units and had to find
shelter elsewhere.

Five or six boats were sunk and 25 to 30
houses and small boats were damaged at
the marina on Harrods Creek in Jef-
ferson County.

The Louisville Gas and Electric
Company estimated that 500 customers
lost service during the storm.

debate over natural gas pricing while the

labor issue.

”The forum where this decision is
gang to be made will be in conference,”
Sen. Henry Jackson (D-Wash.), said
Sunday, speaking of the impasse in the
Senate over whether to deregulate
natural gas prices.

The Carter administration proposed
raising price ceilings on natural gas to
$1.75 pa‘ thousand cubic feet in order to
provice incentives for producers to find
gas. But the administration is Opposed to
deregulating prices. The House has
approved a $1.75 ceiling.

There have bear reports Carter would
agree to a compromise lid of $2.03.
However, Jackson said he has been
advised that Carter would not agree to a

Associated Press dispatches

The Penn State Nittany Lions gota
second chance, on the first cloudy
October Saturday afternoon, to
prove that their pride and tradition
could surmount the steady im-
provement of Kentucky football.

But after one of college football’s
biggest upsets this year, the Nittany
Lions walked off the field smarting
from a second straight loss to
Kentucky and only the eighth loss
ever on their home ground.

The 24-20 score was a lot closer
than last year‘s 2245 debacle against
a rare soso Paterno club. But in the
days to come, this win will bring
back sweeter memories for UK fans
and will do more for bringing
respect from people like Woody
Hayes, Bear Bryant or Barry

In other words, Saturday‘s
shocker served notice that college
football has reached a new level in
the state of Kentucky

For this was a more experienced
Penn State team, which had easily
disposed of its first three op
ponentsv- Rutgers. Houston and
Maryland—and had moved into the
number four spotin the Associated
Press Top 10.

But even expenence could not
save quarterback Chuck Fusina
from throwing his first three in
terceptions of the season. The first
pickoff, by Dallas Owens, was
promptlyreturned 23 yards into the
end zone, chopping a Penn State lead
to 10-7.

The second interception. a slip-
pery deflection off the hands of
State receiver Matt Suhey, was
grabbed by the everdaring, ever-
diving Mike Siganos at the 27-yard
line. From there, quarterback
Derrick Ramsey calmly drove the
offense into the eni zone in four
plays for a 14-10 lead.

Just as suddenly as Penn State
had taken its quick 100 lead, on
Jimmy Cefalo‘s 75 yard punt return
TD, the Wildcats had cast the
pressure squarely back on Joe
Paterno's Brooklynbred shoulders.

Behind the pinpoint passing of
Fusina, Pem State moved back
ahead by 20-14 at halftime, after a

60-yard touchdown drive and a 54-
yard drive that ledto a 25—yard field

But somewhere in the halftime
strategy se$ion, weaknesses in the
right side of the Penn State defen-
sive line and in the left side of its
secondary were discrssed.

“The key to the game was
patience,“ said Fran Curci in the
middle of the postgame euphoria.
“We weren’tgoing to fall into the
trap Houston and Maryland fell into,
getting behind and having to throw."

Even when Ramsey did have to
throw, he was sharper than in any of
the first three games. He did not
have to rely on his usual length—of-
the field touchmwn pass. like the 50-
yard bomb to Felix Wilson last
week. Instead, he dropped off short
passes to halfback Randy Brooks
and split end Dave Trosper.

An 18-yard reception and run by
Brooks put Kentucky on the Penn
State nineyard line. en route to the
first go-ahead score. The key
reception by Trosper came after
Ramsey had managed to lob a pass
with a wouldbe tackler hanging onto
his back.

But the game really belorged to
the defense.“We thought we would
get them in the fourth quarter if it
was close,“ Curci said. ‘

Several clutch plays in the final
quarter supported Curci‘s predic-
tion. The first was Owen‘s second
interception, which it caught after
suspending himself in mid~air,
cutting in front of a Penn State

“On that play, it was either a
touchdown for Penn State or an
interception," Curci added.

()n State‘s next series of downs,
noseguard Richard Jaffe crashed
over Penn State‘s center and flat—
tened Fusina. In his jubilation, Jaffe
leapt to his feet and pointed his
fingers at Fusina, declaring UK's
supremacy for the afternoon

There still remained the clinching
fumble, caused by a jolt to a Penn
State back on forrrth down. UK
recovered the fumble, as if there
was any doubt the day was not over
for Penn State already.

Graves’ manager claims
TV station showed bias

Kernel Staff Writer

The campaign manager for
mayoral candidate Joe Graves
charged on Friday that a Lexington
television station has suppressed a
story unfavorable to Graves” op-
ponent, Jim Amato.

Marty Barth Graves campaign
manager, released the script of the.
story, and told reporters, "Why this
story was killed, we don‘t know. We
do know the reporter involved was
given no reason why the story was
killed. We also know the reporter
has resigned in disgust.“

The story, prepared by WKYT-TV,
Channel 27 reporter Al Parsons,
dealt with the issuance of liquor
licenses while Amato was state
Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC)
commissioner in 1976.

Ken Kurtz, news director for
WKYT, was present at the press
conference held at Graves‘ cam-
paign headquarters, and responded
to Barth’s charge.

The story was not used, he told
Barth, "because our legal counsel
advised us the story contained at
least six potentially libelous
statemerts. It was decided not to run
the story until those areas could be
chared up."

Kurtz also denied that Parsons
had resigned in disgrst over the
delay 'n airing the story.

“Parsons quit because, quite
frankly, he was offered a higher
paying job with a mayoral candidate
in Jacksonville, Fla. A simple phone
call tome would have explained that
to you." Kurt: said.

Ralph Gabbard, WKYT general
manager, said in a prepared
statement that the script was the
station‘s private property and was

removed by Parsons without the
station's consent, an action he called
“totally irresponsible
reprehensible.“ Barth
acknowledged the saipt was given
to the (Era vcs campaign by Parsons.

I’arsons‘ story. Barth said,
“basically says that while Jim
Amato was ABC commissioner,
there were fraudulent and possibly
illegal issuance of liquor licenses in
Fayette County to friends of the
Carroll administration.

“The Graves campaign is not
making any judgment at this time as
to the charges of illegality on the
part of Mr. Amato. If liquor licenses
were issued illegally or even

and '

questionably while Amato was
commissioner, then that is
something the public has a right to
know. If Mr. Amato did nothing
wrong, their the truth wrll vindicate

“There are powerful people who
evidently do not want the governor
and Jim Amato, in particular, to be
embarrassed, to be implicated in
possrbie illegal activity." Barth

Joe Groves was not present at the
press conference. Barth said.
because "Joe has nothing to do with
this. This statement does notcome
from him, butfrom the campaign.“
