If everything runs on schedule in
the next week, students can expect
to hear UK’s radio station, Radio
Free Lexington, on the air on Feb.

Most of the equipment has arrived
and been set up in the studio, but
station personnel are still awaiting
the shipment of the antenna some-
time this week.

“We don't forsee any additional
delays, except possibly the anten-
na,” said Program Director Mark

WRFL had been expected to go on
the air in January, but delays in the
shipment of various equipment
items forced the postponement.
Beaty said this could be attributed
to a high number of orders received
by the company supplying boards
for the studio.

Following a phone survey last se-
mester which showed overwhelming
support for RFL among students,
the UK Board of Trustees approved

a $1 increase in activities to help the

Originally, RFL members had set
a target date of Oct. 1 for being on
the air but the UK Physical Plant
Division estimated it would take al-
most $25,000 to renovate a storage
area in the Student Center for
broadcasting a recording needs.

The group had received $40,000 be-
tween the city of Lexington and the
University for start-up costs. The
city and University had also contrib-
uted $15,000 between them for yearly
operating costs.

The increase in student activities
fees, however. was needed to ensure
the station's operating budget.

Now, one piece of equipment is all
that is needed to put the station on
the air.

While awaiting the antenna’s arri-
val, workers plan to put finishing
touches on what has already been
set up.

“We’re working on completing the
studio with cabinets for the equip-
ment to fit into," Beaty said. “The
individual departments are working
on their organizational staffs. Ev-

Unlveralty ot Kentucky. Lexington. Kentucky

Antenna arrival late next week
will put RFL on the air soon

eryone has accomplished that rea-
sonably well.”

In addition, training sessions will
be conducted this week for potential
disc jockeys. Beaty said that 130
people are trying out for DJ spots.

“We‘re going to have everyone
who was interested be trained and
then submit a 30-minute tape,” he
said. He anticipates this taking from
a week to 10 days to complete. Staff
selection will be based on the tape,
training and the amount of work in-
dividuals have put into the station,
Beaty said.

Although Beaty said they have
enough people trying out for posi-
tions right now, “we wouldn't turn
anyone away“ who still wants to try
for a spot. However, they would
most likely have to wait until after
this semester to go on the air.

Beaty said he was pleased with
the station‘s progress despite the
equipment delays. “As soon as we
got the equipment, everything has
gone very smoothly," he said. “Ev-
eryone's ready to crank up."

WRFL’s studio is set up on the
bottom floor of the old Student Cen-


ter, and Beaty said they already
have a ”significant library" of re-
cords and tapes.

Although the Feb. 22 date seems
fairly definite for the station to
make its first broadcast. Beaty said
“once everything is set up and we
finish the transmission, we'll make
a definite announcement." The first
song to be played on the air has not
been decided yet, he said.

WRFL will broadcast from 88.1
FM on the radio and will reach lis-
teners within a 10—mile radius of the

Campus program teaches studying skills

Contributing Writer

To Becky Castle, UK’s campus
can be a very big place.

Castle, like many other freshmen,
has discovered that the change from
high school to college can be just a
little intimidating. Trying to deal
with midterm exams, research pa-
pers and fast-paced classes where
the outside readings are measured
in reams instead of pages, can
frighten even the best prepared en-
tering students.

That is where the UK Learning
Skills Program comes in.

“It wasn’t the size of the campus
that overwhelmed me," said Castle,
an early graduate from Henry Clay
High School. “It’s just that there is
a lot more time spent studying than
in high school. The learning center
has really helped me to get orga-
nized and be able to study better."

The learning Skills Program of-
fers classes designed to help stu-
dents study smarter, not necessarily

For $10 a semester, students can
attend up to 20 workshops.
Workshops dealing with motivation,
reading techniques and note-taking

can all give students the edge they
need to do better in class.

And according to students, the
workshops are beneficial. Castle
said that although she had been
taught study techniques in high
school, she was still not comfortable
with her study habits.

“Usually I could get what I
needed out of the readings, but I
would get more out of the lectures,“
she said. The study reading
workshop “helped me learn what to
study fromthebook."

Sharon Laumas, acting director of
the learning Skills Proyam, says
that even graduate students can find
theworkshops helpful.

“Most people think that graduate
students would know how to study,"
Laumas said, “but some very bright
students can learn how to work the
system or procrastinate and then
cram for a test and still make good

But in graduate school, where stu-
dents are expected to be more inde-
pendent and self-motivated. she said
theyoftennminto trouble.

Services offered by the Learning
Skills Program are not just limited
to wwkahope on study habits. The
computer leanflm lab, located in
Fraaee Hall, has mm- to help

students with math, reading skills,
English usage and vocabulary en-

Programs are also available to
students who may be thinking of
graduate school, including pre-tests
for the CI‘BS, the GRE and the

Melanie Lybarger, a learning
skills counselor who teaches some of
the workshops, thinks that although
students may not have enough time
to use all of the techniques pre-
sented in the workshops, at least
they can know which of their study
techniques are the most effective,
and which ones don‘t work.

Laumas agrees that it is not easy
to form new study habits, but that at
least the student can feel more pre-
pared after attending the


“The whole idea behind all of
these courses is to help the student
feel more in control,“ Laumas said.
“Many times, the student gets this
feeling of being overwhelmed and
becomes frustrated, and just begins
a downward spiral. We hope to
make students realize that there is
somethmg they can do if things are
notgoing well."

taxing tickets
to help library

Staff Writer

UK President David Roselle said
last night that placing a 50-cent sur-
charge on athletic tickets to help the
UK library's budget situation is not
a good idea.

“It‘s a mistake to raise money by
doing something with tickets and
designating it for one area . . . so
other than that I don’t see anything
wrong with raising additional reve-
nue," Roselle said.

Members from the Arts & Sci-
ences Library Advisory Committee
sent a letter Friday to Roselle sug-
gesting a 50cent surcharge on UK
football and basketball tickets to
help the ailing library. Roselle said
he hasn’t yet received the letter.

Nancy Dye, chairwoman of the ad-
visory committee, said the letter is
a suggestion because the library
needs support.

Paul Willis, director of libraries at
UK, said the problem is that the
book budget is the same this year as
it was last year — $1.6 million, while
the cost of periodicals rose 17 per-
cent this year. With that increase
and the current budget standing. the
library is unable to buy the periodi-
cals needed.

“This means taking 17 percent of
$1.6 million which will make us have
to reduce the number of periodicals
we subscribe for in order to keep in
line with this budget," Willis said.

He said if this were to happen the
periodicals would be reduced by 34
percent. a $500000 reduction.

The library is currently under-
going a journal review and has had
to stop buying journals, which are

apology as

candidates cool rhetoric

Associated Press

DES MOINES, Iowa —' Vice Presi~
dent George Bush distanced himself
yesteday from charges his cam-
paign has been leveling at chief
GOP presidential rival Bob Dole as
candidates of both parties began
cooling their rhetoric on the eve of
Iowa’s crucial precinct caucuses.

The Democrats, with a tightly
bunched group of front-runners, fo-
cused on attacking US. policy in
Central America, with Massachu-

Bush, appearing on ABC‘s “This
Week with David Brinkley,“ offered
to “totally apologize” to Dole's wife.
Elizabeth, if a Bush campaign state»
ment offended her, but declined to
extend an apology to Dole.

“I don‘t think he's mean-spirited,"
Bush said. “But I don’t think the
charges that that campaign has lev~
eled against me over and over are
true at all."

Bush was questioned about a
statement issued by Iowa campaign
manager George Wittgraf which at-
tacked Dole for “mean-spiritedness“
and raised questions about manage-
ment of his wife‘s finances.

“I looked at that and saw nothing
that I felt was a criticism of Eliza-
beth, but if so, I would totally apol-
ogize to her,“ Bush said. “She‘s a

shot at Bush on the Iran-contra
arms deal.

“I do think there’s a feeling out
there that somehow. obviously. Bush
is more closely tied to that than any
of the restof us.“ Dole said.

The campaign flurry came as it
of the 13 Republican and Democrat-
ic presidential candidates stumped
across Iowa. with only Tennessee
Sen. Albert Gore Jr. and and former


Secretary of State Alexander Haig
staying away.

It comes on the heels of a survey
showing Dole with a doubledigii

by the Des Moines Register. while

Wheelchair players
provide perspective

Steve Stobaugh was cruising along
on his motorcycle when he decided
to pass the pesky truck. The truck
cut him off. Stobaugh and his bike
crashed to the pavement. That was
Labor Day, was.

Yesterday, Stobaugh played bas-
ketball for the University of Ken-
tucky. And in some ways he played
it better than Rex Chapman or Ed
Davender could ever dream.

Stobaugh plays basketball without
running. He plays it without jump-
ing. He has to. The motorcycle acci-
dent claimed the lower third of his
right leg. It took a limb. It didn’t
take him.

“1 look life in the eye and spit,"
Stobaugh said. “Life’s no bed of

There were 175 other basketball
players just like Steve Stobaugh at
theUKSeaton Oenterthisweekend.

Sixteen teams from 12 states, Can-
ada and Holland converged for the
ninth annual Bluegrass Invitational
Wheelchair Basketball Tournament.
The only losers were on the

“Playing basketball gives us an
opportunity to show people what our
ability is instead of what our disabil-
ity is.” Wheel Kat captain Doug
McLaughlin said.

It’s a shame more people can’t see
that. They should.

“The public is not aware of what
we have to offer," Wheel Kat coach
Mike Woodard said.

What these guys have to offer is
the true essence of sport. It's not il-
legal recruiting. It’s not Proposition
48. It's not drug testing. It’s not
gambling. It’s none of the evils that
sportissaturated with.

The zealots who worship the able
basketball players at UK should see





the Wheel Kats. A half-time exhibi-
tion at Rupp Arena would seem to
be fitting. Perhaps it could scale
down the ridiculous hoopla that sur-
rounds the other Kentucky basket-
ball players.

See Doug McLaughn lead a fast
break in a chair and suddenly what
Ed Davender actually said to Eddie
Sutton doesn’t seem so damn impor-
tant. The Wheel Kats can put colle-
giate athletics in perspective. They
can put yourself in perspective.

Watch a wheelchair basketball
game and you'll see all the fire of a
Final Four. You see a good shot. A
great pass. Soon, the chairs begin to
fade into just an extension of the
player. Until one tips and a guy
spills to the floor.

“The biggest beneficiary is these.
guys are able to be competitive,"
Woodard said. “That’s a desire
these guys still have. "

The fierce competition stays be-
tween the lines on the court. The
friendship doesn’t.

“I’m glad I came out," Wheel Kat
Rod Bobblitt said. “1 like it a lot bet-
ter than regular basketball."

“It’s a lot of fun," McLaughlin
said. “We work with each other and
we learn from each other."

One lesson the players learn from
each other is they need each other.
The danger of a physical disability
is the isolation it can cause. It
shouldn’t. A team assures that it

“If you're just mainstreaming and
not with people with disabilities. you
miss a lot of having something in
common,“ McLaughlin said. “So
much of what we get from basket-
ball helps in everyday life."

Perhaps the biggest help is physi-
cally. Basketball gives these guys
an opportunity to be active. There

isn‘t many chances to do so when
everyday is spent in a chair.

“It's good to get out there and
sweat and have some fun.“ Sto—
baugh said, "it‘s good to get that
tired feeling. I think a person should
stay in shape and not become an old
fart. This just fits the hill.”

Sports have always prouded me
