SGA senator resigns

Ward's replacement will be Jason
Williams -— who finished second in
last spring’s SGA elections — if he
accepts the position, said SGA Se-

Williams said he would be willing
to fill the gap if it was still within
the senate rules.

“I stll feel like I could be a good
senator even though I‘ve been out of

The UK chapter of Amnesty Inter-
national will concentrate efforts to
improve the state of human rights in

At a meeting last night. chapter
President Roland Mullins announced
that Amnesty International USA. the
national division of the worldwide
organization. has recently stressed
the importance of Cambodia as the
target of human rights cam—

Mullins said Cambodia will likely
be the theme of this year‘s annual
candlelight vigil. which will be held
Oct. 14 in the ampitheater behind
Memorial Hall.

The vigil will include speakers. po-
etry readings, and music from folk
singers Art Mile and Peter Kosky.

Mullins said the turnout at past
vigils hasn't been very good, but the
chapter hopes to become more visi-
ble this year. “We want to give our
campus group more focus." he said.

One of Al's main objectives is to
educate students on human rights,
Mullins said. Another important
function of the group is to write let-
ters to foreign officials and also to
US. legislators.

At last night‘s meeting, the group
signed a petition to be sent to an of-
ficial in the Democratic People's
Republic of Laos. In cooperation
with others in Al. they are trying to
help people there who have been im-
prisoned “without being charged.
tried or convicted of any crime."
The petition asks the Laotian gov-
ernment either to charge prisoners
with specific crimes or to release

Members also expressed their sup-
port for the Moakly-DeConcini Bill.
which the US. Senate should vote
upon this month. The bill would tem-
porarily suspend deportation of Sal-
vadorans in the United States for
two years, pending an investigation
of the conditions in El Salvador to
determine if it would be safe for
them to return to their country.

Other Al efforts include cam-
paigning against the death penalty
in the United States. Vice President
David Eaton said AI is opposed to
the death penalty “in all cases. be-
cause it is cruel and unusual. but es-
pecially because of the inconsistency
in its application. It‘s too arbi-

At the meeting. campus members
discussed sending letters of protest
to the judge in a Kentucky murder
trial in which capital punishment is
being considered. “We don't want to
suggest that this guy should be let
free." Mullins said. “We just think
imprisonment is sufficient to get
him off the street.“

hopes to increase its interaction with

The Student Government Associa-
tion last night rejected a constitu-
tional amendment that would have
based senators‘ salaries on atten-
dance at mandatory SGA functions.

The amendment also would have
required senators to schedule and
maintain an office hour each week.

The senate voted in favor of the
amendment by an 18—13 margin. but
under SGA rules. a two-thirds ma-
jority is required in order for an
amendment to pass.

The amendment was proposed by
SGA Senior Vice President Susan
Bridges. Bridges said she proposed
it in order to make SGA more acces-
sible to students and to force some

senators to do their jobs it they
wanted to be paid.

Currently SGA senators receive
$150 each semester. Salaries are
funded by money from student ac
tivities fees.

Law Senator David White told the
senate "there should be no OPPOSI‘
tion to this bill. I'm afraid this is the
only way we can get some college
senators into the Student Center."
he said.

Senator at Large David Moore
spoke in favor of the bill because the
job of an SGA senator is similar to
having a regular job.

“You‘ve been hired to do a job
and this is what you should look at."
he said.

But some senators said they didn‘t
like being told what to do.

"This is ridiculous." said Senator
at Large Susan Brothers "If you do
your job right you shouldn‘t have to
havea baby-Sitter ”

Brothers said making office hours
mandatory was attempted before.
but "for one reason or another" it
was unsuccessful.

President Cyndi Weaver said pro-
rating senators' salaries according
to attendance was a good idea be-
cause "it might make senators more
committed to their jobs "

However. Senator at Large Darid
Botkins questioned whether it is pos
sible to legislate commitment.

Communications Senator Scott
Ward questioned whether students
even care if SGA is committed to
them or not

Sen. Biden withdraws
from presidential race

Associated Press

Biden ended his quest for the 1988
Democratic presidential nomination
“with incredible reluctance" yester-
day saying the “exaggerated shad-
ow“ of mistakes made it impossible
to continue his candidacy.

Biden withdrew from the cam-
paign after a week in which his
campaign was rocked by admissions
of plagiarism and false claims about
his academic record.

The Delaware Democrat is the
second candidate to be forced from
the race by questions of character
and integrity.

“I made some mistakes." Biden,
his wife at his side. told a room
crowded with reporters. “Now the
exaggerated shadow of those mis-
takes has begun to obscure the es-
sence of my candidacy and the es-
sence of Joe Biden.“

Biden said he had to choose be-
tween continuing his presidential
campaign and chairim the Senate

Judiciary Committee hearings on
the Supreme Court nomination of
Robert H. Bork.

“And although it‘s awfully clear to
me what choice I have to make. I
have to tell you honestly I do it with
incredible reluctance and it makes
me angry. I'm angry with myself
for having been put in the position —
put myself in the position — of hav-
ing to make this choice," he said.

“And I am no less frustrated at
the environment of presidential poli-
tics that makes it so difficult to let
the American people measure the
whole Joe Biden and not just mis-
statements that I have made.“

Biden refused to take reporters'
questions and returned to the Judi-
ciary hearings. where he was lauded
by his fellow senators.

“I would like to say the Demo-
crats have now lost their most artic-
ulate spokesman.“ said Sen. Strom

Collins said after a meeting with
key legislators that “we've all come

tucky employers an extra $110 mil-
lion per year for 30 years.

She spoke at a news conference in

dent Pro Tem John “Eek“ Rose,

Squeeze’s ‘Babylon and On’ does just

What was the last Squeeze album
in recent memory that didn‘t deal
with the overriding theme of alco
holism and its destructive effects?

It's a trick question. There isn‘t

Ever since the band reformed
three years ago as rehabilitated al-
coholics, they have been patting
themselves on the back for it with
songs about their forlorn, narcissis-
tic misadventures.

The second installment in this
phase is Babylon and On. which is
exactly what the album does. And
what it’s babbling about is bad
relationships and the lighter side of

Of course, Glenn Tilbrook and
Chris Difford, the co-songwriters
here, would sell their mothers to
gypsies for a rhymed couplet. “No
more the drugs and the drinking,"
goes “Tough Love,“ “Her heart can
stop sinking/Now that he‘s home
once again." And they still have the
ability to strike some of the simplest
truths as on “Cigarette of a Single
Man“ with lines like, ”The book he
reads is on the floor/He's read it
several times before."





In the early days, Squeeze was de-
cidedly a singles band. The albums
were compilations of songs with top-
ics ranging from psycho-groupies
(“Annie Get Your Gun") to mastur-
bation (“Touching You, Touching
Me"). The music was the binding
thread —keyboards and guitars built
on beat and bordering on overkill.

Now it is the lyrics that have nar-
rowed and the music that is broa-

“The Prisoner“ is the only track
that reverts back to the dance-floor
formula of old with couplets that are
darkly humorous: “He‘s helping her
to see/Haw a marriage can be ba-
ked/Baked like a cake but without a

Guitar solos are rare here. and

The result is shifting tempos that
are a Squeeze trademark and an ex-
panded, almost orchestrated. sound
that isn't. However, things get
spread so thin that the backbeat of
old is lost in layers of instruments
and electronics.

The fact that the band’s aim is
shifting seems only to show that
they are maturing, as musicians and
individuals. The spontaneity of a
song like “Sex Master" is pretty far
gone. In its place is a shift toward a
style that is more ambitious, though
it lacks some of the earlier frivolity.

The lottery is coming
to Lexington Saturday

Staff reports

This Saturday, concert-goers
may be confined thinking they're
in line for UK basketball tickets.
Not because of Rupp Arena. But
because of the new system for
distributing concert tickets

This new system, eliminating
the need to arrive at ticket win-
dows more than 1% hours before
the start of ticket sales, will be
implemented when Pink Floyd
tickets go on sale this Saturday

Jeff Bojanowski, Rupp Arena
box office manager, said that as
a result of Bon Jovi, U2 and other
concert ticket sales over the
years, another method of ticket
distribution was needed. “We
can’t deal with campers.” he
said. “We’ve received complaints
from parents. Civic Center busi-
nesses and our patrons.”

Bojanowski added that with pa-
trons camping out on Rupp Arena
property, the arena then becomes
responsible for those people. And
this is a major concern for Rupp
Arena officials especially since,
as Bojanowski said, “the camp-
ing turns into a basic party atmo-
sphere day and night."

Rupp Arena officials said that
arena doors will open at 7:30
am. this Saturday with the ran-
dom drawing at 8:30 am. This
drawing will determine each pa-
tron’s position in one of the eight
ticket lines. Then ticket sales will
start at 10am.

The officials emphasized that
this new type of random drawing
will only be used at Rupp Arena
Ticket Windows, and other ticket
outlets will administer queue
lines. During the first day of
sales, 50 cents will be charged
per ticket to cover the added cost
of the queue lines.
