Reform, new courses
key to improvement

Countering a growing perception
that college course work is ground-

ed in a white, Eurocentric perspece »


tive, UK has made moves to add .

courses to its curriculum that tocus
more on blacks.

Some students. faculty and ad-

go far enough, while others claim
that black experiences and cortlrie

tsting courses.

"If we're going to take a special

Collins’ desire:
serve students

Assistant News Editor

Exhibiting a sincere interest in
servmg her fellow students, Chris-
ta Collins will be one of the first to
tell you that there is room for
change in UK‘s Student Govem-
ment Association.

Collins. a speech pathology jun-
ior, has been very active in SGA
since she was a freshman, but that
hasn't blinded her to flaws in stu-
dent government. She said her ex-
tensive SGA experience makes her
the most qualified of this spring's
presidential candidates to bring
that change.

From budget reform to stream-
lining of the executive branch,
Collins offers several ideas for im-
proving SGA.

“Student government has a lot
of good programs and it‘s got even
greater potential. We recognize
that We want it to be even greater
than it is,“ she said.

But after talking to the Villa
Hills, Ky., native for any length of
time, it becomes clear that her
biggest concern is the welfare of
UK’s students. It is apparent not
only in her reasons for running for
SGA president but also in the rea-
sons shc became involved in stu-
dent government three years ago.

“I enjoy working with the stu-
dents. I like to be around my class-
mates," said Collins, a member of



Helping stu-
dents has been
her priority at UK, and in the pro-
cess the students have helped her.

“I've enjoyed this (SGA) expe-
rience a lot. The neatcst thing I've
found at the University is Just be
ing opened up to so many differ-
ent people, types of personalities.
Cultures, religions and back-
grounds," she said. “That's really

The late Robert Kennedy once
said, “If I wanted to be president,
which of course I don‘t, I‘d still
rather be George Plimpton."

Plimpton was at UK to speak at

“These guys down on the field

One of his most famous articles
was a piece he wrote as an April

titled “The Curious Case of Sidd

the baseball world by telling the
story of a ficticious pitcher who
threw a 160 mile-per-hour fastball.

“I'm thinking of managing a
wrestler who quotes Shakespeare

haven‘t found him yet."

Curry recalled the amazement of

FBI questioning
police officers

in motorist case

Associated Press

terday began questioning officers
from the police division where four
lawmen charged with beating a
black motorist were stationed. and a
grand jury reconvened to probe the
videotaped attack.

FBI agents were expected to in-
terview more than 200 officers as-
signed to the Foothill Division, 20
miles northwest of downtown, to
see if a pattern of civil rights abuses
exists there, said police spokesman
Lt. Fred Nixon.

Four officers have been charged
with assault in the March 3 beating
of Rodney King and several other
officers who stood by are being in-

The FBI and the Police Depart-
ment said interviews with the offi-
cers had begun, but they wouldn’t
provide details.

Lt. George Aliano, president of
the Los Angeles Police Protective
League, a police union, said investi-
gators will want to know “what
kind of talk goes on in the locker
room at the station, what they know
about the officers at the scene.”

The interviews should be com-
pleted by the end of the week, he

“I believe they’re going to find
there is no pattern of excessive
force. because if there was the pub-
lic would have been outraged a long
time ago," Aliano said.

At the suburban station, boosters
hung a hand-painted placard pledg-
ing support for Police Chief Daryl
F. Gates and the Foothill Division.
It was the only evidence of the con-
troversy that has caught nationwide
attention and prompted calls for
Gates to resign.

Mayor Tom Bradley again called
for Gates to step down, saying his
departure is essential for the city to
recover from the embarrassment.

“I believe that the healing process
would be better advanced if he were
not there at the center of this
storm," Bradley said.

A Los Angeles County grand
Jury, meeting for the first time in
nearly a week, heard more evidence
about officers at the scene who
failed to stop the attack.

Besides the four white policemen
indicted on felony charges, 23 other
law enforcement officers were
present: 17 LAPD officers, four
Califomia Highway Patrol officers
and two Los Angeles Unified
School District officers.

Goldberg, the fake psychic who sur-
prises herself by contacting the
dead in “Ghost," and Joe Pesci, the
maniacal mobster of “GoodFellas,”
won Academy Awards for support-
ing performances last night.

Goldberg beat out Mary McDon-
nell of “Dances With Wolves,”
which with 12 nominations began
the night as the favorite to domi-
nate. Pesci's competition included
Graham Greene, also for “Wolves."
Kevin Cosmer's epic Western

“Ever since I was a little kid I
wanted this," said an emotional
Goldberg, who had struggled since
receiving a best actress nomination
for her screen debut in the 1985
film “The Color Purple.”

“When I was a little kid, I lived
in the projects. You are the people I
watched. The people who made me
want to be an actor," she told the
star-packed crowd.

The actress became only the sec-
ond black woman to win an Oscar
and the first since Hattie McDaniel
was honored for the l939 film
“Gone With the Wind."

Pesci was much more subdued,
saying “It‘s my privilege, thank
you," and walking off.

Emcee Billy Crystal began the
show in style, performing a hilari~
ous musical tribute to the five best
picture nominees for the 63rd annu-
al ceremonies, which took place at
the Shrine Auditorium and was tele-
vised by ABC—TV.

won the prize for makeup. The best
costume award went to the French

“Dances With Wolves” seemed
likely to bring Costner the best pic-
ture prize and best director trophy
for his directorial debut.

The three-hour Westem’s chanc-
es were bolstered recently by the
Directors Guild award to Costner
and the Writers Guild selection of
Michael Blake for best screenplay
adaptation. In January “Dances
With Wolves" won Golden Globe
awards for best dramatic picture, di-
rection and screenplay.

“GoodFellas,” Martin Scorsese’s
searing gangster epic, dominated
the critics' awards this season and
was nominated for six Oscars, in-
cluding best picture and direction.
Scorsese, who received a best direc-
tor nomination for 1980’s “Raging
Bull," has never won the prize.

Other best picture nominees were
”The Godfather Pan III," “Awaken-
ings" and “Ghost." The awards had
not been presented by press time
last night.

While Costner was expected to
win as director and co-producer
(With Jim Wilson), he was not the

favorite for his third personal nomi-
nation —~ as best actor. The leading
contender was considered to be Jer-
emy lrons, the silky Claus von Bu-
low of “Reversal of Fortune."

Other nominees for best actor
were Richard Harris for “The

Depardieu, making a movie in

the ceremonies amid controversy
over a magazine interview that

the statement was untrue, and cate-
gorically denied saying that he had

For the ninth time in a dozen

Collins, Cooper offer 6 years of experience

Assistant News Editor

In this year‘s Student Govem-
ment Association election, presiden-
tial candidate Christa Collins and
her vice presidential running mate
Amy Cooper offer something that
other candidates don't —— six years
combined experience in student

They bring insiders‘ perspectives
into the election, a knowledge of
SGA that other candidates can‘t
boast. And they offer changes in the
SGA infrastructure that they, as
SGA insiders, think will work.

“We know what works and what
doesn’t work within our organiza-
tion," Collins and Cooper said in
their platform.

Pan of their plan is to make SGA
receptive to everyone — not just to
open the doors of the organization
but to actually reach out and pull
people into student government.

“Every student on this campus is
a member of student government.
You might not be on a committee or
be a chairman, but we are your
voice to the administration and to
other organizations,“ Cooper said.
“We can get things done for you if
you will let us. Christa and I want to
make it a question not of what SGA
has done or what our programs are:
we want to make it a question of
what can we do for you'.‘

“Do you have a complaint? We'll
fix it or find somebody who can. Do
you have an idea? We‘ll try it. Do
you have a problem? We'll help
you. And if you don‘t want to come
and tell us, we will come and find
you and ask you."

State of the University address

The Collins/Cooper ticket propos-
es that the University president, the
Faculty Senate chairperson and the
student government president give a
joint address on the state of the Uni-
versity. The address would outline
“the annual goals and agenda of our
University" and would take place in
the beginning of the fall semester. A
questioning period would follow the
address. According to the platform,
the “intent is to achieve a common
understanding and unified goals to
proceed into the 1991-1992 school

Restructuring of special con-
cerns division

Collins and Cooper propose to re-
structure one of the three divisions
of the executive branch of student
government, the special concerns
division. Currently, the special con-
cerns division is composed of sever-
al committees representing various
campus groups, including greeks,
international students, non-

They propose abolishing the spe-
cial concerns committees — with
the exception of the National Issues
Forum — and replacing them with a
special concerns board. The board
would be composed of two repre-
sentatives from each of many cam-
pus organizations and groups.

According to the platform,
“Board members would bring con-
cerns, needs and ideas from their
specific group to the attention of
representatives from other groups.
They would be in a position to work
together in a unified, and therefore,
more productive manner to achieve
the desired results.

Senate orientation

“As a senator, it took me a while
to have a grasp of what my job was.
It seemed so broad to me. We want
guidelines for the senators so they
have a good idea about what their
jobs entail,” Collins said.

The Collins-Cooper ticket propos-
es to continue the senate retreat

Collins and Cooper propose as-
signing a residence hall to each sen-

form, each senator would be
responsible for “maintaining an up
dated bulletin board, or section of,

All senators would be required to
attend a budget workshop at the be-
ginning of the semester to learn to
understand the budget.

“(The senators will) know how to
read the budget —— day one. Before
we pass the budget, before we have
our first meeting, before we start
giving money to different causes,
they'll know how to read that bud-
get," Collins said.

The Chairpersons of the SGA op-
erations and evaluations committee
and the appropriations and revenue
committee would “review the bud-
get monthly with the president to
ensure that transactions are being
handled properly."

The Chairpersons and the comp—
troller would make a monthly repon
to the full senate.

Also under the proposal, a de-
tailed listing of monthly budget
transactions would be given to each
senator and to the Kentucky Kernel.
The Kernel would have the option
to publish the information.

don't have a problem with that,"
she said. “If it’s in the best interest
of the students, I will do it.”

Asked which of the president’s
duties she thinks will be the most
important, sh
