Wolfe lawyers
request delay
in hearing

Associated Press

FRANKFORT, Ky. — Attorneys
for Kentucky State University Pres-
ident John T. Wolfe Jr. have asked
for a 30—day delay of a hearing at
which the board of regents will dis-
cuss firing Wolfe.

However, former Gov. Louie
Nunn, chairman of the Board of Re-
gents, said Wednesday that the
board would reject postponement of
the hearing, scheduled for Oct. 18.

Wolfe’s attorneys, William A.
McAnulty and Barbara Reid Har-
tung, both of Louisville, also re-
quested that the regents name “an
impartial non-member to preside"
over the hearing; allow quizzing
and exclusion from the case of re-
gents with “bias or hostility" to-
ward Wolfe; and require “clear and
convincing evidence" of wrongdo-
ing, incompetence or neglect of
duty before Wolfe may be dis-

Nunn said the board would also
reject most of McAnulty and Har-
tung‘s ll requests made Tuesday.
He said he had spoken to enough
regents to “determine that the
board's wishes would be to follow
the advice of counsel," attorney
William E. Johnson of Frankfort. In
a memo to the board Tuesday.
Johnson recommended against de-
laying the hearing.

Johnson said “the good of Ken-
tucky State University demands a
speedy hearing" on the nine charges
the regents filed against Wolfe on
Monday. They included two involv-
ing potential criminal liability —-
Wolfe’s granting himself a pay
raise and his alleged skirting of
competitive-bidding laws in reno-
vating his campus home.

Johnson urged the regents to hold
the hearing with no hearing officer;
no quizzing of regents; and no re-
quirement that the charges be prov-
en by “clear and convincing evi-

State law on removing presidents
of state universities requires that
their incompetence, wrongdoing or
neglect be proved only “by a pre—
ponderance of the evidence," he

Johnson urged the board to grant
a few of the procedural requests
from Wolfe‘s attorneys. Wolfe ap-
parently will be able to call witness-
es, cross-examine witnesses, com-
pel testimony with board-issued
subpoenas and get a stenographic
record of the hearing.

Hanung said Wednesday night
that she did not have any comment
on the likely rejection of the re-
quests. McAnulty could not be
reached for comment.


Size of school
Ky. salaries

Assoclated Press

Although salaries for uni-
versity presidents in Ken-
tucky typically are deter-
mined in part on the school‘s
enrollment and budget, that
rule does not hold below the
top three universities.

UK President Charles
Wethington receives
$157,955 a year at the state’s
largest university, while John
T. Wolfe Jr. at Kentucky
State University, the smallest,
gets $92,500, the Lexington
Herald-Leader reported yes-

Wolfe ha been embroiled
in a controversy after giving
himself a 9.5 percent raise to
$101,288 that is being chal-
lenged by the school’s Board
of Regents.

“Before we get excited
about Wolfe's pay raise, let’s
see what other state universi-
ty presidents are making,"
said Shelby Lanier, president
of the Louisville branch of
the National Association for
the Advancement of Colored
People, one of several civil
rights groups trying to help
Wolfe keep his job.

The University of Louis-
ville, the state‘s second larg-
est institution, pays its presi-
dent, Donald Swain, the
second highest salary at
Sl55,000, and Hanly Funder—
burk, the president of the
state‘s third largest school,
Eastern Kentucky University,
receives $122,210.

However, Western Ken-
tucky University has the
fourth largest enrollment with
l5,72() students, but President
Thomas C. Meredith gets
$99,924. That salary ranks
sixth on the list behind the
presidents of much smaller
Northern Kentucky and
Morehead State universities.

“I‘m not sure the size of the
salary and the size of the
school should be a correla—
tion." said WKU regents
chairman Joe lracane.

He said the school was fac-
ing a tight budget and Mere-
dith asked the board to give
him a raise of only 3.5 per-

Student ticket sweeps senate positions

Four UK freshmen are now Stu-
dent Government Association sena-
tors after winning the SGA elec-
tions that ended yesterday.

Rob Bowling (422 votes), Mar«
vin Bishop (416 votes), Jennifer
Fields (407 votes) and Caroline
VanEman (388 votes) were voted
as freshman representatives.

The four, who ran on a ticket to-

Bowling, a pre-phannacy major,

won the majority of the 1,004
votes. “I was surprised ~ and I feel
great," about being the top vote-
getter in the election," he said.

“I would just like to thank the

Bowling said.

Fields looks forward to begin

Sorority holds dinner to improve race relations

“My face mm from smiling all

her first days as a UK professor 20
years ago soon after the University
became desegregated.

Wilkerson spoke to about 75 stu-
dents last night about cultural diver-
sity at a “Greek Unity Dinner,"
sponsored by Alpha Kappa Alpha
social sorority.

The dinner was held to encour-
age better communication between
the predominantly black and largely
white sororities and fraternities.
said Kim Mayo, president of Alpha

Wilkerson emphasized in her
speech “Beyond Cultural Diversity"
the importance of learning to live
and work with people on a daily ba-

Mayo said the best way to change
attitudes is by learning to be sensi-
tive to others and “not be phony."

“You may not be able to empa-
thize but you can sympathize," she

Six fraternities and one sorority
did not attend the dinner. All 39 fra-
ternities and sororities were invited.

Mayo said she did not think the
groups that did not show for the
dinner were prejudiced because one
of the fraternities that did not attend
was black. There are three predomi-
nantly black fraternities and four
sororities at UK.

Being in a black sorority provides
members with things that are fo-
cused to the black community.

Pookie Jones the Cats’ starting

so, coupled with the return of the

Hockman standing in as No. 3 quarterback

Ryan Hockman’s feet are a little
tired these days. Not from running
all day. but from standing.

So as the third-string UK quarter-
back walked off the field after a 2
1/2-hour practice this week, he had
his own simple request when asked
for an interview.

“Mind if we sit down?" the Harri-
son, Ohio, native asked. “I've been
standing all day. And I mean stand-

Just a few weeks ago, Hockman
figured the only standing around
he'd be doing about this time would
be at the cafeteria. The junior
thought he‘d be running around the
practice field, directing the Wild-
cats’ offense. Instead, he's watch—
ing redshirt freshman Pookie Jones
take the snaps.

“It’s been a little frustrating actu-
ally," said Hockman. “But I'm not a
very emotional person. I‘m not go-
ing to cry in my room or feel de-
pressed. 1 still come out here with a
smile on my face.”

It would be easy for an athlete to
lose a bit of confidence after being
so close to No. l as Hockman was,
then drop to a bracketed No. 3 spot
on the depth chart.

Hockman and junior Brad Smith
were neck-in-neck in the race for
the starting position going into a
late-August scrimmage, a practice
game that Coach Bill Curry said
would determine the starter. Smith
completed 14 of 15 and had a



couple of touchdowns,
Hockman on the sideline.

“The thing wasn’t based on that
one scrimmage, but hey. Brad had a
great day," Hockman said, as he
shrugged his shoulders.

On paper, Hockman was listed
behind Jones. who the coaches felt
needed the repetitions/experience
the No. 2 gets in practice. Jones has
since canted the starting position.

“The remarkable thing about this
is Ryan hasn’t done anything to
take himself out of the picture,"
Curry said. “He has never come out
here, hung his head or pouted. He‘s
a quiet guy and not aggressive by
nature, but every time he comes to
work, he comes to work sincerely."

The only blemish on Hockman’s
record this season was when he and
Jones missed the team bus from the
hotel to the stadium at Indiana. For
that, both were suspended for that

“When we discipline somebody,
it‘s over the minute the discipline‘s
over," Curry said, “so that had
nothing to do with the depth chart."

To compound the depth chart
woes for Hockman, senior Freddie


Maggard, the starter for much of
the last two seasons, returned from
shoulder surgery. At this point,
Maggard and Hockman are both
listed at No. 3 on the depth chan.

“I enjoy playing football, whether
or not I get a chance in the game,"
Hockman said this week. “What I
enjoy doing is throwing the foot-
ball, but right now I'm not doing
too much of that, honestly.

“Just about everybody goes
through something like this."

This time last season, Hockman
was in just about the same spot —
third string. It took injuries to Mag-
gard and Smith for the then-
sophomore to see action.

He entered against Florida in the
fourth quaner and completed 10 of
13 passes for 134 yards and scored
a touchdown on a l-yard sneak. He
relieved Maggard midway through
the first quarter at Tennessee and
connected on 25 of 43 passes for
277 yards and two touchdowns.

With that experience, standing
around is even tougher.

“This is something that’s kind of
good to go through,” Hockman

“It makes you appreciate winning
and being on top a lot more than
yOu would if you were up there the
whole time," he said, then breaks
out in a loud, wishful laugh. “Scri-
ously, anything can happen, as we
saw last year.”

Even though Hockman says he's

just standing around, he's actually
preparing for his future. He wants
to follow his father and brother into
the football coaching profession.

His father. Ken, is the head coach
at Harrison High School. His broth-
er, Kyle, is a graduate assistant at
West Virginia University.

“My goal is to be a successful
coach," said Ryan, who prefers the
college game. “And what I'm doing
right not is great preparation for
that, whether or not I’m playing. So
I think that‘s what‘s keeping me op-
timistic in a way.

“Some people might just stand
around and not get anything out of
it, but I’m learning every day."

This does not necessarily mean,
though, that his playing days are
over. Neither he or Curry believe
that’s the case.

“Football is a tough, demanding
business,“ the UK coach said.
“We've all been demoted and pro-
moted. There's a good chance we’ll
need Ryan at some point his season.

“We expect Ryan to maintain his
sharpness, and when the team needs
him, to be ready to go. That's what
he‘s always done.“

Hockman says all he needs is
“about five seconds“ to loosen up.
After all, nobody likes to stand
around all day.

Braves’ fans chop, chop, chop NL series tickets

Assoclated Press

ATLANTA — Hundreds of At-
lanta Braves fans who camped out
with grills and sleeping bags for up
to two days walked away with the
last 3,000 National League playoff
tickets yesterday.

But some were angry when the
tickets sold out in 90 minutes. They
booed, yelled Obscenities and
cheered for the Pittsburgh Pirates.

About 2,000 people, who could
buy up to four tickets each, were in
line when ticket windows opened at
8:56 am. Some had camped out at
Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium
since Tuesday night.

“I’m pretty psyched," said Mark
Tuchman, an Emory University stu-
dent who was first in line. He ar-
rived at the stadium at 5:30 pm.
Tuesday. and left yesterday with
choice, lower-level seats.

“I‘m kind of sad," said Anthony
Camp, the 450th person in line who

bought the last three tickets. “There
are people going all around the sta-
dium who aren’t going to get noth-
ing. I'm kind of sad for them."

But not sad enough to pan with
his tickets to the Pirates‘ games this
weekend — he said he’d only sell
for $500 a ticket.

“We got screwed, we got
screwed,” a group of disgruntled
fans chanted, charging that Braves
officials staged the ticket sale in a
manner that allowed a group of
about 200 people to break in line
when ticket windows opened.

“The people that broke in line
didn‘t get tickets," said Terri Bren-
nan, director of stadium security.
“They took the place of some who
wouldn't have gotten tickets any-

Stadium security guards, Atlanta
police and military police from Fort
McPherson were on hand to control
the crowd, allowing a few at a time
to approach the four ticket win-

dows. Only about two dozen people
complained, said Jack Tyson, direc-
tor of Braves ticket sales.

He noted that fans had other op-
portunities to buy tickets. The
Braves sold more than 15,000
championship and World Series
tickets in previous sales before the
end of the regular season.

The Braves announced last week-
end that almost 3,000 more tickets
would be sold for this weekend’s
games. These were “straggler” tick-
ets held by other ball clubs and
were the last tickets available, Ty-
son said.

“I guess they all waited ‘til this
sale because it‘s a lock. Before, it
wasn't sure that the Braves would
