“I was very surprised when
I found out that there was not

Allison Crabtree, a political

group‘s president

Crabtree said there was a
NOW chapter on campus in
the mid-‘80s. “but I really
don't know what happened to
it. There was a nimor that the
founders hit some road
blocks. but I have had no trou-
ble at all."

There are 25 members of
the campus chapter of NOW
at this point Crabtree said.
“We really are just getting
started so. I am sure after perv

Crabtree said rape aware-
ness is the main topic that the
group will deal with during its
first semester.

UK goes for fourth straight win,


By Erlc Mosolgo
Staff Writer


The UK football team has Geor-
gia on its mind. For veteran Wild-
cat defensive players, any thought
of the Bulldog offense is likely to
be accompanied by a sudden chill.

Last year’s UK-Georgia encoun-
ter was a lesson in bad defense, as
evidenced by the 567 total yards
the Dawgs rolled up on their way to
a 40-7 romp.

first against Bulldogs since ’90

Even that miserable performance
was better than the defensive disas-
ter of I991, in which the Georgia
offense erupted for 638 yards en
route to a 49-27 victory.

In case you don’t have a calcula-
tor, that‘s 1,205 yards allowed in
two games.

The Wildcat defenders will get a
chance to redeem themselves to-
morrow when UK faces the Bull-
dogs at Sanford Stadium in Athens,
Ga. A victory “between the hedges"
would certainly defy recent history.

Consider the facts:

0UK has not won in Athens since
1977, when it shutout the Bulldogs

ence record.

WASHINGTON — The govemv
ment's first attempt to survey the
effect of cable TV regulations on
the prices viewers pay was partially
released yesterday. but it raised
more questions than it answered.

The incomplete data showed that
rates went down for 68 percent of
subscribers and up for 31 percent.
But the survey covered only about
15 percent of all cable TV users and
was not a scientific random sample
representing the overall population.

The cable industry praised the re-
sults as proof the new law achieved
its objectives.

But the law's primay congres—
sional sponsor. Rep. Edward Mar-
key. D-Mass., said the findings are
"too incomplete to draw any serious
conclusions about the effectiveness
of the commission's regulations."

He said he would ask the General
Accounting Office to conduct its
own survey of rates. The GAO is
Congress‘ investigative arm.

The FCC‘s findings are prelimi-
nary because they deal only with 14
of the 25 companies surveyed. The
FCC declined to give any informa~
tion about its findings on the 11
other companies.

The survey compared the differ-
ence between rates in April and in
September, when the new regula-
tions went into effect.

The FCC found that among the
14 companies. rates went down an
average of 8 percent. or $2. It did

not give any details about the size
of the increases alone.

lawmakers say the intent of the
legislation was that increases hit
only a tninority of customers and
amount to a few cents on each bill.

The top 25 cable companies were
asked to supply data about their top
10 operations. The 24.5 operations
on which data was gathered serve
about 14 million, or roughly one-
quarter, of all subscribers.

But the analysis of the data was
complicated by the development of
an “a la cane" pricing system by 11
of the 25 multi-system companies.
So. the percentages released yester-
day deal only with the 14 other
companies. which have 8 million

Furthermore. the 10 systems
within each cable company do not
necessarily reflect all the cable
company‘s operations.

“We serve over 1.000 communi-
ties." said Bob Thomson. spokes-
man for Tele-Communications Inc,
the nation's largest cable company.
“The top 10 don't reflect the com-
pany at large because in the top sys-
tems we have more expensive
equipment deployed. If you were to
take all our systems you would find
the number of people who experi-
enced rate decreases was closer to
80 percent."

The law regulates basic cable.
which is defined to include the
broadcast stations obtainable over
the air with an antenna as well as
public and govcmment access cable

Additional channels are generally
packaged in “tiers“ which also must
stay within cenain price ranges.

When companies break their non-
basic cable channels into an “a la
cane" pricing system. however,
they fall outside the regulations.

It is the true story of one man.

Rudy Ruettiger (Sean Astin), who
had a dream and worked hard all of

his life to make it come true.

Rudy‘s lifelong dream is to be a

Urgent rock
Urge Overkill


Urge Overkill
Geffen Records


By Ell Humble
Contributing Critic


With its new release, Satu—
ration, Urge Overkill thrust it-
self into the new crop of re-
freshing, innovative

alternative bands along with
Smashing Pumpkins, Radio-
head and even Lenny Kravitz.
The Chicago trio makes no



mistake about its intentions:
They came to rock.

The album roars out of the
gate with the dirty, guitar-
driven rocker and current
MTV mainstay “Sister Hava-
na." All too often the term
“altemative” is merely a dis-
guise for pure rock’n’roll,
which is definitely the case
with Urge Overkill.

The second uack,“Tequila
Sundae," appears poised to be
a follow up single, with the
group's trashy, garage sound
maintaining the groove and
attitude. The band also adds
occasional sound effects to
enhance the tunes.

“Positive Bleeding" in
cludes lush, acoustic strum-
ming, as well as pounding,
two-fisted guitar riffs. It’s evi-
dent that Urge Overkill al-
ways puts the song first, and
largely succeeds.

Urge Overkill‘s influences
are all over the place. “The
Stalker" sounds like a pol-
ished, far-out version of AC/
DC, while “Back on Me” re-
fitxts warped visions of Tom
Petty, as well as R.E.M.

One of the more interesting
tracks, “Dropout," opens with
eerie, synthesized melodies
and a repetitive. almost indus-
trial back-beat, adding well~
placed acoustic rhythms and
warm vocal hannonies.

Whatever these guys try al~
ways results in something
catchy and irresistible.

The band unit is uncharac-
teristically tight considering

Astin portrays Rudy well. He is

KRS-One raps social justice


Return of the Boom Rap
Jive Records


By Matthew Deloor
Contibuting Critic


At the front of the line that de—
clared rap as an intellectual medi-
um, KRS-One (aka Kris Parker)
poses with various lines of thought.
With each new release, you find
yourself asking, “What‘s his line of
propaganda now?"

Return 0fthe Boom Rap is KRS-
One‘s first solo album since he
burst onto the rap scene in I985.
This also is his first effort in the
past six years without his former
group Boogie Down Productions.

Ripe with reggae sounds and de-
liberate hip hop beats, Return con-
tinues his role as a “Teacher“ in hip
hO') and black culture. Always con-
cerned with problems of the inner
ety, the role of rap as urban folk
music takes on new meaning as he
rhymes the details of history.

about the hundredth time someone
laughs at his aspirations. The View
er begins to wonder if his dream is
ever going to be brought to life.

Although “Rudy" slows down in
the middle, that only helps build on
the emotions of the climax at the
end. When everyone, Rudy, his
friends and the audience, starts to
think that Rudy should stop fanta-
sizing about being pan of the
toughest college football program
in the country, he gets his chance.

The other players on the team say
they won‘t dress for the final game



rasta beats, finds KRS-One proving
his adept feel for a reggae sound.
Thick with bass and underlying
horn spurts, KRS-One chants: “First
show a little respect and change
your behavior/Change your attitude/
Change your plan/There can never
be justice on stolen land."

Still struggling to raise awareness
of the injustice served at the hands
of law enforcement, the “officer"
and “overseer“ become synony-

In bitter tones the two are linked
together through the lines of time,
“You need a little clarity'I/Check
the similarity/The overseer rode
around the plantation/The officer is
out patrolling our nation." Es-
tranged and disgusted, he sounds
off with the others who share his
predicament, “After 400 years, I’ve
got no choices.“

Even though he has evolved with
rap through its stages of evolution,
KRS-One is not without his fulfill-
ing of the traditional rap stereotype.

of the season if Rudy, the walk-on.

By the time Rudy gets put into
the game, the audience members
are on the edge of their seats ready
to cheer along with the crowd at the
football game.

“Rudy" encourages dreaming and
hard work. It says that anything is
possible as long as you want It

It is imponant that people are re-
minded that dreams do come true.
In the fast-paced, competitive socie<
ty of the ‘90s, people tend to forget

On “Mad Crew" and “Return of
the Boom Rap," he joins the legions
of other rappers who posture and
claim to be the biggest and baddest
on the block.

“Higher Level" takes a stance
that KRS-One is familiar with. He
is searching to define the levels of
seeiali/ation, discrimination and the
lack of a religion to call his own.

The only thing concrete that es—
tablishes itself is a spirituality that
will guide him and us through the
fallacies of history and what we
have been taught. With a hammer-
ing beat and a distinctive drawl, he
says. “We gonna talk about what
you believe in/We gonna talk about
how you been trained."

Echoes of “Sound of Da Police"
ring through the chunky thump of
the bass as he says, “Emancipation
is long overdue/So if it come from
procrastination/Cause freedom is
within you." Ringing true with
clever rhymes that have a Streetwise
intensity, KRS-One again has
proved his role as an "Edutainer"
and a “Teacher" of history through
hip hop.

KRS-One has pointed rap and hip
hop in new direction of intellectual
free thought and given it and us
courage to question history.

‘J 0y Luck’ joyous



portrait of families






”The Joy Luck Club"
Hollywood Pictures


By Irene Hong
Contributing Critic


Some movie-goers WlII dismiss
“The Joy Luck Club" as an Asian-
American specral interest movie

Audience members familiar with
Amy Tan's novel of the same
name, however, understand the
crosscultural appeal of her charac-

The movie Interweaves the stii»
ries of four Chinese immigrant
women (who form the Joy Luck
Club in San Francisco) and their
American-bom daughters.

In a series of flashbacks, the audi»
ence becomes immersed in the nar.
ration by each of the mother»
daughter pairs.

Granted, when the third mother
gets a far-away look in her eyes and
a flashback ensues. the movie
seems slightly contrived.

We hardly mind this formula,
however, since the courses of the
women‘s lives are so compelling. In
one sequence, the audience follows
the strong‘willed Auntie Lindo
from the day her mother promises
her, as a four—year-old, to a wealthy
family in an arranged marriage.

According to the niatchmakcr‘s
agreement, Lindo's mother must
deliver her to the husband’s family
when Lindo becomes 15. Until
then, Lindo‘s mother reprimands
her daily. saying that “no one
would want such ti daughter-In

Moments like this illustrate one
of the greatest strengths of the mo-
vie: the screenplay. Written by
Amy Tan and Oscar-Winner Ron
Bass (“Rain Man"), the language of
the narration paints vivid images.

When the mother Ying-ying de-
cides to talk her daughter out of her
destructive marriage, she describes
how she waits “like a tiger to cut
her spirit loose."

Perhaps the most memorable as-






pcct of “Joy Luck" is its power to
evoke emotion.

In one stanling scene, Ying-ying
charges at her abusive husband with
a shard of broken china, but stops
abruptly when he orders her to
clean up her “mess.“

Watching the frail Ying-ying,
battered in mind and body, obe-
diently stoop to gather the broken
pieces is a porgnant moment.
Though she finally escapes this
abusive marriage, it scars the rest of
her life: Her daughter, Lina, “had
no spirit because I had none to give

Perhaps the detailed, fascinating
plot m involvmg three generations
in diverse cultures a would have
carried "Joy Luck" all by itself.

In unfolding the plot, however,
the movie also masterfully com-
bines compelling narration and im-
ages that move the audiencc. Amy
Tan‘s rich storytelling translates
beautifully to the screen.
