PI‘OIBSSOI'S keep long hours

‘Puhlish or

Bob lloutz, a professor in the
horticulture and landscape archi-
tecture department, estimates he
spends about 50 hours a week on
his job.

But he doesn't really consider it
a job. It's too fun to be that.

“A job is when you go home to

wax the car,” he said.

The 1996 Kentucky Higher
l'iducation Accountability Report
shows most professors may have
the same idea.

Professors spend about 55
hours on the job, the report said.
That's 15 hours tnore than the 40-
hour work week observed by
many jobs in America.

lloutz wasn‘t surprised.

He said professors love their
job, which includes the interaction
with students and research.

The extra hours don’t matter
so much.

For example, llout7. spends
about 85 percent of his job in

“A lot of (work) takes place on

Sometimes he has meetings at

\\'cil .said the statistics from the
report are definitely real.

l-‘ach year each college asks
professors and instructors to fill
out a form —— the distribution of
effort agreement — detailing how
they allocate their time.

llout7 said he considered 50
hours a week to be a reasonable
estimate tor him, but he doesn't
count work at home, such as read—
ing journals and grading papers.
Ile said some professors may
count that work in their work

According to an accountability
report, the distribution of agree-
ment is used in the assignment of
activities for the academic year as
well as for payroll distribution for
the faculty member.

There has been little

in the form of chalk drawings
outside the Margaret I. King

yesterday mornin .

Michael Tomilyn, Student
Government Association Sena-

said he knew about the draw-

he knows who is responsible.

The chalk drawin display
bears a strange resembfance to a

was reported in the Dec. 11,

all was the article about chalk

extent of the information I

Graduate School dean’s office.

“The maintenance people
got rid of it. We have no idea
who it was,” Derickson said.

Paul Willis, director of the
King Library, placed little
importance on the protest .

“We feel like we’re responsi-

l:l’ust as the protest had little

The chalk rawin s — dis-

UK’s top players. Coach Bernadette
Mattox appreciates the fact that she
plays with a lot of intensity and is not
giving up, despite the hard times the
Cats have ne through.

“She pitted outstanding,” Mat-
tox said. “Patrice really came in and
gave us a lift when was needed.

Boyd is putting up some impres-
sive numbers for UK. In her first
year she is leading the team in three—

You go to college, on pull all-nightcis.

No questions asked, no reasons given.

Some UK students, though, perform this rite of
passage regularly by working the graveyard shift.

Students give different reasons for working late at

Late shift jobs often pay more than daytime coun—
terparts. Scheduling conflicts between work and class
can be avoided.

A few late night jobs provide study time. Some
students are night people and prefer to work at night.

With benefits come disadvantages. Sleeping
through morning classes or being too tired to learn
are potential problems.

Becomin a virtual vampire can negatively affect
one’s social ife

Jonathan Gent, an English junior concentrating in
film, works as a communication service assistant —
also known as a telephone operator — on nights and

Usually Gent works from ll p.m. to 7 a.m. After
working third shift on the weekends “my sleep sched-
ule is almost completely scre ," he said. It takes him
two days to get back to norrna .

“I’m pre much naturally a night person,” Gent
said, who fin s time to study during slow periods.

Using a headset and a computer, Gent ju gles two
calls at once: one from a student asking for irections
on campus and another from a University hospital
patient wishing to speak to his doctor.

The switchboard room is small and gray, and
computers and other electronic equipment surround
the operators.

One might mistake the room for mission control
at NASA.

The switchboard is the nerve center for campus.
Calls to all University offices, including the hospital,
come through the switchboard.

“I really do prefer it (working third shift) because
there aren’t many calls. And some of the calls you get
are a lot more humorous than calls you get during the
day,” Gent said.

Humorous calls come from intoxicated students.
One phone call received b another operator came
from a student whose frien had a broken ankle. The
student, who referred to himself as a pirate because of
his costume, told the operator he was too drunk to

“We get a lot of drunk
students," (ient said.

Kevin Mench also gets some
strange calls.

“No, I really don't want to play
Poison or \Varrant,” he says to a caller.

Mencl, a psychology senior, is the
music director for WRFL (88.1 FM). The VVRFL
studio is lccated in the student center.

Like Gent, Mench is surrounded by electronic
equipment during his shift Thursdays from midnight
to 3 a.m. in the studio.

As music director, Mench chooses what gets
played at the station.

He describes his own show as “three hours of the
most obnoxious, loud, dis sting music I can think
of. Usually classic punk anfihatever the kids want to
listen to,” Mench said.

“I like working this time slot because we have less
stringent station policies,” Mench said.

He plays a cart that tells listeners that between the
hours of midnight and 6 a.m. some material may be

He has been doing this shift sincejanuary, but has
done just about every other time slot for WRFL.

After work he goes home to sleep for a couple of
hours and then goes to his second job at the agrono—
my greenhouses in biological sciences were he grows
grasses and clover.

In the Margaret I. Kin libra computer lab,
Chris Conlee, Kimwee Cfian anld’John Freeman
work as consultants. Their shifts vary, but fall
between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. mostly.

“The hardest thing is peo le ask you the same
question 50 times,” Conlee, a usiness management
sophomore, said. “At this time of night, you either
get people who know exactly what they are doing, or
nothing at all.”

These late shift lab consultants are default com-
puter user sociolo ‘sts. Each can recount several sto-
ries ofodd things Eilppening during their shifts.

Chan, a computer science and business manage-
ment sophomore, recounts reoccurring themes
among sleep-deprived students.

“Students can’t find the stapler sitting right on the
desk because they are too sleepy,” Chan said.

Freeman, a communications freshman, finds the
new printing procedures difficult for some students.

“One of the major
problems is the new
printing system,"
Freeman said.

“I’ve had a girl start
to flip out because it
wouldn’t print,” Conlee added.
They also notice that the users

who repeatedly sit in the corners are
usually lookin at pornographic \Veb sites.

“Capt. Nigfit Desk,” as he refers to himself, is liric

Speaking to a packed audience
at the Delta Gamma house Kyle
Thom son announced he would
run or SGA President with
Kristin Triplett a his running

With the announcement,
Thompson and Triplett become
the first people to kick off cam-
paigning for the presidential and
vice-presidential seats.

In her brief speech Triplett
spoke about plans to increase
awareness about SGA services
such as: tax services, legal services,
escort services and tutoring assis-

She also proposed increasing
awareness about how SGA spends
their money through a monthly
SGA newsletter.

Thompson proposed having a
cam us—wide music festival or car-
niv modelin other universities.

If elected, hompson ho es to
print senators names, office ours
and telephone numbers in the


Kentucky Kernel to promote bet—
ter relations between students and
SGA. Thompson would like to see
SGA provide tutors for upper level
courses, as well as, increasing
awareness about tutoring services.

“We want to reach out to stu-
dents who aren’t involved in cam-
pus activities by going to the
dorms and talking about what
SGA can do for them and address-
ing any concerns they may have,”
Triplett said.

Though they have not filed
officially to run in the election yet
Thompson plans to file by Thurs-
day morning.

Other ideas Thompson and
Triplett include followin
through with plans for a memoria
room at William T. Young library
and continuing the SGA Memori-

and Triplett hope to initiate annu-

The late shift at Holmes Hall is not eventful entirely.

“Other than burning their popcorn occasionally
and having to empty the building for the fire alarm,
that's about it," \Volsin v said.

\Volsing's job mainly consists of signing’ people
into the dorm.

“I also have the grand opportunity to wake up the
RAs ifsomebody forgets their keys," \Volsing said.

VVolsmg does not describe himself as a night per-
son, but took the job for some extra cash.

He also occasionally deals with intoxicated stu—
dents as well.

“The first night l worked here, four or five drunk
people came stumbling in.”
