Midsummer night
at “K Arboretum


By Lisa Rippetoe
Staff ”’riter

The Shakespeare Festival
invaded the Arboretum at UK
last night and will occupy it until
Aug. 3.

Brian Larson, 3 UK theater
junior, has been hard at work this
summer racticing with partici-
pants in t is year's festival.

Larson, who lays Agrippa in
“Antony and Cleopatra," audi-
tioned in March with a one
minute monologue from “Much

Ado About Nothing."

With three main stage plays
under his belt, Larson has been

practicing rigorously
sincejune 1.

“You can always
count on probably
three (hours daily),
sometimes four," he

Practices are held
at St. Micheal’s Epis—
copal Church and at
The Arboretum.

Larson expects the
Shakespeare Festival
to be more of a chal—
lenge for him than
regular semester the-
atrical productions.

“People are out there playi
around," he said of the out-o -
doors audience. “It becomes a
real excercise in focus."

Larson said he has learned/a
lot by working with the other



Fris ee, he said.

“'ith three produc-
tions this summer,
practices become
intense, and time
becomes precious.

Larson, who hopes
to move away from
theater and towards
film, said that partic-
ipating in the Festi-
val has been a great

The best perk of
this experience, Lar—
son said, is “the peo-

7 Mary 3 grows on road

Louisville visit
fills venue with

By Brian Dunn
News Editor

The crowd was sweating.

It, a mob of about 1,600 sar-
dines. was packed into the Thun-
derdome in Louisville last Fri—
day. and it, a glob of heated.
human emotion, was sweating on
the band.

And the band. Seven Mary
Three, was sweating on the fans.

“\Ne didn’t take it lightly."
said jason Ross, lead singer and
songwriter. about the band‘s
fourth stop at the venue.

“We went in, and we played
the show," he said.

“That's how you find out who

our audience is. You can actual-
l; see them—you can hear them,
you can feel them." he said.

“They‘re sweating on you,
you're sweating on them."

The band’s current tour has
stops at mostly venues that hold
between 500 and 1,000 fans in
such cities as Cincinnati.
Louisville and Milwaukee.

Night after night, the band
discovers and entertains its audi-
ence of moshing and screaming

Probably hundreds have been
hoisted above the madness this
summer and thrown about (and
many women have had their
shirts ripped from their bodies).

“There‘s alwa s a little bit of
havoc that can e turned into
some kind of positive energy if


you can get everybody to get
along," Ross, 24, said.

The band's tour. which started
on june 4 and ends in the middle
of August, celebrates the release
of Seven Mary Three’s second
album, “Rock Crown," which
follows the platinum—selling
“American Standard.“

Ross said much of the inspira—
tion for “Rock Crown” came
from a maturation the band and
crew members. most of whom
are best friends from high school
or college, experienced by being
on the road the last two years.

“Being out on the road is the
best and worst," he said.

“Being able to go out and
search and search for a new
experience. but then there’s an
emptiness left behind as you

Ush ahead into a new territory,"
lie said.

“Whatever moderate success
we’ve achieved has been due to
the fact that it's more than one
person who believes, who has
faith in something that they can‘t
put in a ba or touch," he said.

“They Tielieve that together
the music means something." he

And Seven Mary Three wants
its fans to experience the music
as something with meaning
instead of trying to scrutinize the

“I want there to be people
that walk away from the son s
understanding the lyrics simply
because of the feelin the music
brought out in them. Ross said.

Critics have said “Rock
Crown" has songs that are hard-
er and songs that are softer than
those off “American Standard."
which sprung such hits as “(lum-
bersome." “\Nater‘s Edge,"


“Devil's Boy” and “My. My.”

“l think so touch of our first
album was in the middle." Ross
said. “I didn't like it in the mid—

So the songs on “Rock
Crown" match more what the
words mean, he said.

Among the softer songs. Ross
likes most “l could be wrong"
and “()ven," because he can tap
back into when the song was
written. _

“(()ven) evokes for me." he

“l can almost smell the place
where it was written."

This week, the Centers

Americans are heeding the
warnings about unsafe sex
and drug use, as well as safe—
ty measures when dealing
with bodily fluids.

More people are listen—

AIDS isn’t a disease that
only affects homosexuals
and drug users. In fact, the
epidemic has slowed signifi—

significantly as it has for the
high-risk groups.

Americans are still fight-
ing the misconception that
AIDS “can’t happen to me."

It can happen to you, and
it will if you don’t pay atten-
tion and protect yourself.

AIDS isn’t particular. It

This is absurd.

How many young people

While it is possible that
some of those who begin
smoking at an early age


should talk to young people

They might learn that
peer pressure and trying to
appear older could actually
be what leads to the decision
to smoke.

Before the government
goes after cartoon camels
and rugged cowboys, they
need to look for more realis-

Nike abuses
human rights

To the Editor:

Well, well here goes Nike
again. They not only have the
University of Kentucky under
their dictatorshi now but also
the University 0 North Caroli-
na. Another multi—million con-
tract that pretty much controls
the athletes aml coaches to what
they can wear. But this is only
half the problem. According to
“(ilobal Business," a San Fran—
cisco Report agency, the corpo-
ration known as Nike hires thou—
sands of workers in Vietnam,
China and Indonesia to work for
a wage ranging between $0.20
and $1.60 a day. And Nike —-— the
king of shoes -— can feel good
about this. Is this really a living
wage? To make matters worse,
the CH) of Nike brings in $5
million a year while allowin a
continuation of human rig ts

This reign of power must
come to an end. We cannot
allow such corporations to run
our society to their own well-
bein .

T us, I ask bother the Uni-
versity of Kentucky as well as the
University of North Carolina to
reconsider what kind of agree-
ment they have signed to.

Is it worth wearing fancy
shoes to allow human rights vio-

The point in question is
Why does UK lose students P I
cannot completely answer that,
but as an International Student, I
can make a few points that may
assist the decision makers to
update their strategies.

First, most of UK’s colleges
barely make it into the second or
third tier in the national college

Second, The university stud-
ies program and colle 6 re uire—
ments are increasingfy di ficult

dents either drop out, are sus-

Third, I did not really want to
point this out, but the general
student body at UK is racist
towards non-whites in general.
This attitude becomes even
more a gressive towards inter—
nationa students because they
have problems with their Eng-
lish comprehension and elocu—

There has been no effort by
the University to promote uni-
son, and understanding between

Make the UK community
more hospitable at large by
introducing race friendly work—
shops. Improve the standing of
the UK colleges by generating a
better pass rate.

Don’t try to flush out the
brainiacs from the normal stu-
dents in the pre-major classes,
instead help and encourage them
to learn and prosper.

Tb the Editor:
Those who support the

Southern Baptist boycott of Dis—
ney have come up with a novel
argument to silence critics. They
say that people who express dis—
approval of the Baptists’ intoler-
ance are intolerant. And people
who disagree with bigotry are

Come on, now. This is a
ridiculous argument and a
pathetically weak attempt to
defend meanness. The Baptist
boycott of Disney is a bi oted
action in every sense 0 the
word. It is hatred disguised as
dedication to religion. Yes, they
have a right to boycott whomev—
er they want, but let’s not call it
noble. The Southern Baptists
aren’t bo cotting on behalf of
greater liberty, equality or fair-
ness for humankind, they are
boycotting in an attempt to
withhold those things from gay
