National trends may hinder
education, state official says


Changes in technology, demogra-
phics and social attitudes may mean
trouble for American education in
the future. said Ray Nystrand. the
secretary of the state Education and
Humanities Cabinet.

Nystrand addressed the Student
Government Association‘s Fall
Leadership Conference at Lexing-
ton's Carnahan House last night. He
said that changes in the American
population will complicate the na-
tion's educational institutions —
from the kindergarten level to high-
er education.

One such change that will affect
education is that more jobs are be-
coming available in areas where ed-
ucation is not needed. he said. Tech-
nological advances have created the

The word alone often is a turnoff
to many students who don‘t care
much about politics

However. there seems to be a
change of heart from students about
voting this election year. Those in-
volved in attracting unregistered
voters have noticed a change and
are pleased about it.

Don McNay of Vote Central Ken
tucky said he has seen a lot of stu-
dent interest in registering this
year. Groups such as his concen»
trate on unregistered students main-
ly because. “a large group of unre-
gistered voters tend to be college
students and minorities." he said

Students still have until 4 pm
Oct. 9 to register at The Lexmgton
voter registration office at 120 North
Upper St. The office is open is .u;
a m. to 4 p in. Monday through Fri-
If students are registered out of

tration to a Lexington address Stu-
dents who are 18 and have lived in

igible to vote,

The Student Government Associa-
tion is holding a registration drive
on campus for those people who can-
not make it downtown to register
Officers there have positive feelings
for their upcoming registration
drive. which will be held tomorrow
through Sept. 2.

Jody Hanks. SGA political affairs
director. who is in charge of the
drive. has set a goal of 2,000 He has
high hopes because. "there seems to
be a lot of interest." in the past. 300
to 600 students have registered dur-
ing the fall drive.

The most demanded job in society
by the year 1990 will be janitorial

that said America Will need 700.000
jamtors by that year

Another trend involves the emer-
gence of minorities. he said In the
years to come. there will be an in-
crease in the amount of minority
students in the nation‘s pool of col-
lege‘age people

America‘s hispanic birth rate is 75
percent greater than the birth rate
of the nation as a whole. he said.
Other minority populations will in
crease also. he said.

The typical college~age person will

no longer have the economic advan-
tages associated with the middle
class. he said. and there may not be
enough, students to go around at
every institution in the country.

“We're going to lose some small
liberal arts colleges in this nation,"
he predicted.

A final factor that will influence
education's future is “the lack of
public regard for institutions and
events that affect other people."
Nystrand said.

These trends may not influence
Kentucky education as much as
other areas. Nystrand said. because
the state is much more stable than
others. But that is not good news.
because Kentucky is already so poor
in education. he said

“Where is Kentucky

“We're behind."

SGA. however. has had problems
with its voter registration drives.
Some or all of the 300 students who
registered with SGA last March
found themselves not eligible to vote
because their cards never were filed
in the voter registration office.

l-Yeudenburg said it was. “pre-
dominately a lack of communication

between the voter registration office
and SGA."

SGA is taking precautions to pre-
vent another mix-up.

The registration forms properly
filled out by the students will be
turned in to the voter registration of-
fice and a receipt will be given to

Also. SGA is keeping a permanent
file in the office with a list of every
registered student and the individual
receipts. Students can confirm their
registration in the SGA office.

A final precaution is a letter that
will be sent to every student who
registered telling them their form
has been turned and listing numbers
to call for information on voting.

"We wanted to send in the letter
and tell the student where to vote.
but the precinct lines are divided in
strange ways." F‘reudenburg said.
“Really. there is an all out effort on
our part and on the part of voter
registration office to make it as easy
as possible for students to register
and for them to vote. "

The only way to determine what
precinct students are in is to call the
voter registration office at 253-3021
or 2557563. said voter registration
superVisor Bob Duncan. There also
will be booths set up at the Lexing-
ton Mall and Fayette Mall where a
registered voter can go and find out
where to vote.

Other universities have had an in-
crease in registration “or example.
at Eastern Kentucky L'niversity on
the first day of their voter registra‘

students registered. He expects to
see the same response at UK.

Matrix magic

UK professor displays his intriguing series of paintings in Center for the Arts


The Center for Contemporary Arts begins its fall sea-
son with “Matrix Paintings" by John Strickland Strick—
land. an associate professor in the College of Architec-

Strickland‘s current paintings are nonobjective geo
metric abstractions, with a systematic base off which
all shapes and directions are plotted. The idea for this
series came to him by accident.

About 1970, while waiting for his car to be repaired,

)0 v «to

O 6.


he went to a nearby cafeteria for a cup of coffee “I had
some graph paper and pencil I Just started playing
with some shapes on the graph." he said

”It so happened that these shapes formed a perfect
matrix, entirely filling the sheet (if course. now. I al~
ways start with the matrix “

The matrix is orthogonal. by which he means. a
“tilted array of equal squares equally placed " The
paintings also involve what he calls the diagram. which
is drawn upon the matrix The total effect. translated to
painting. is the emergence of "a differentiated complex
field of shapes" which Interacts With the matrix

squares. “The matrix has most often served as ostinato
to various rhythms in the field." Strickland said.

Every Strickland painting has this matrix, and the
squares remain the same size, color and distance apart.
Their color only changes from painting to painting. The
shapes. colors and tones between or beneath the matrix
are variable. It is sometimes difficult to tell which
plane is foremost. Visual ambiguities arise from the in-
teraction of the matrix and the underlying diagram.
Progressive tonalities and color juxtaposition create vi-
brancy, or a melting away of forms, or even the appear-
ance of double-funtioning shapes.

It is small wonder that Strickland strongly empa-
thins with Josef Albers and Piet Mondrian. Albers is
famous for his monumental work “The Interaction of
Color" and Mondrian is best known for his theories on
Neo-Plasticism. But Strickland's paintings allow for
multiple possibilities through radiating axes which
allow diagonal as well as vertical and‘ horizontal
movements and generation. His progressive use of
color, with the resultant interactions in the field, do at
times all to mind Albers‘ works.

“Horizon." “."Mars and the “Garden Paintings" are
some good examples of how the matrix squares appear
to become more intense or paler. depending on their
“definition against the shapes and areas between.“ The
interaction of the matrix cells and underlying shapes
can also create the illtsion of a double shape.

“Ragtime" is an excellent example. At first look. pas-
tel arrows appear to be moving in all directions. slightly
cut off at points by the white matrix. Then, focusing on
the squares, the pastel colors became overlapping rec-
tanges screened in part by the white matrix

Another fascinating painting is “African " Figure-
ground reversal is effected by the superimposition of
the reversed pattern in different colors so that the
squares change from striped entities at left to "win:
dows" through which one can see the striped patterns

The interstices appear solid rather than as spaces be»
tween the matrix. "African" really does give the Im-
pression of camouflage.

Strickland eventually moved into asymetrical tor-
mats. finding them more interesting and complex.
Space Is expanded in these paintings as shapes move
out and around the edge. Of these. “May" and "June"
were especially beautiful. Exceptionally rich in color.
they are highly accented in parts through staccato color
forms interrupting the interstice flow. One gets the im-
pression of an added dimension which is hard to define.

In the back part of the gallery. there are a group of
shaped paintings refreshing in their Simplicity and bold-

Larry B Vt agers. a 17-year-old high school junior. was
shot and killed in the downtown area Friday night.

The incident occurred at “The Wall." a stretch of Water
Street between Main and Vine streets. The area is infa-
mous among Lexington police. who gave it its nickname.
”The Wall“ is probably the worst trouble spot in the city.

The area is a center for male prostitution. drug sales

waiting to boil over. Friday night, it did.

companied bya juyenile. He was gunned down

More yiolence may be on the way. As ”The Wall” be-
comes more and more notorious. it will become more and
more dangerous

Already. the area attracts curious people. High school
students congregate by “The Wall" on weekends. As the
area attracts more people. it will provide the criminal el-
ement with more victims.

Friday night was the first time Larry Wagers went
there. but one time was all it took for tragedy to strike.

How could the tragedy have been prevented?

But there is a more basic answer Lexington is Ken-

growing pains. And the most ghastly growing pain is the
problem of crime,

It's time Lexington government stopped thinking of vio-
lent crime as a once-in—a-while kind of occurrence. That
kind of attitude will lead to further crime,

‘ The Wall’: Lexington ’s crime connection



Flynt, Falwell playing games in court

Larry Flynt. publisher of the infa-
mous Hustler magazine is in the
news again And no one can guess
where the story will end this time »—-—
or ifit will end

But the plot is certainly thicken-

No weeks ago Hustler magazme
., represented by attorney Allan
lsaacman ~ filed a lawsuit in feder-
al court against the Rey Jerry l-‘al-
well. leader of the Moral Majority
movement The funny thing is. Hus-
tler's suit asks damages for money
Falwell raised speCifically to fight
the pomographic magazme

It's not as complex as it sounds.
but it seems the sort of loophole that
would appeal to l-‘lynt

it all began when Hustler pub-
lished a satirical piece on l-‘alwell
Falwell. justifiably or oy'erzealously
outraged 'depending on your person—
al convictionsi sued for libel And in
order to bUild his campaign of hate
for the magazine. Falwell repro-
duced Hustler's satire and distrib-
uted it as an example for all the
world to see

And to make sure all the good peo-
ple got their money ‘24 \\ orth

But Falwell may not have reck-
oned on the l‘rothing cesspool of ar-

Campus security is no laughing

Someone tried to mug me last

i just left from \‘lSlllng a friend at
her Greg Page apartment when a
figure came running out of the dark.
jumped on my back and demanded
all my money Since I'm 64 and
weigh 215 pounds. he jumped off
again in surprise

lm sorry about that ‘ the
shadowy figure apologized. but it‘s
so dark out here that I thought you
were one of these helpless college
women "

Needless to say. i was profoundly
insulted by this attack on my gender
identity ".“Look 1 demanded. “at
least you could carry a flashlight to
see who your Victims are What if
l'd been a campus policeman walk-
ing a foot patrol',’ Where would you

He eyed me incredulously ll can
only assume this because it was so
dark i couldn't really be sure. but
the odor of his breath suddenly in-
creased and laughed. "You‘ve got



° I 'oodoo 'flgures

1 would like to make a few com-
ments on Marc ('oxs opinion of
Sept 3

Tilt' is‘nuet expanSionist
policies oyer the last 30 years '
\eed l remind you that Republicans
haye giyen us their 'strong lead—
ership in the White House for 20 of
the last .12 years. and Democrats
only 12 of the past 32 years"

2 it was Reagan who stymied the
talks in Geneya by refusng to in-
clude French and British forcm in
the discussmn There are many
other talks tincluding one on chemi-
cal warfare= where Reagan has
pulled the L’mted States out. No. l


do not want to five everytlung to the
Russians. but I do feel much safer
when we are at least discmsing

3) What voodoo economic journal
did you get your figure: from? infla-
tion was never 21 percent. The high-
est figure 1 have is 13.5 percent in
1930. Unemployment one percent
below what it was in Carter's term”
Unemployment was 5.8 percent in
1979. and still only 7.1 percent in
1900. wt 1 saw. unemployment is
currently hovering around 7.5 per-
cent. down from a high of 9 7 and 9 6
percent in 1982 and 1983

And of course homing starts are

up 47 we ve Just come out of the
worst recmSion Since the Great De
pression Finally how can you as-
sert that these are long- -run and not
temporary gains

By the way. I got my real figures
from The Economic Report of the
President. 1%4 edition. 8 very help-
ful report that comes out year
