'Erotic Film Festival' stirs

movie series

Kernel Staff Writer

A resolution was unanimously passed by
the Student Center Board (SCB) Executive
Council Monday night to reaffirm their
support for the entire spring film festival
after a future movie was temporarily

The film. “Best of the New York Erotic
Film Festival“, is scheduled to be shown
at the Student Center (SC) Theatre Mar.
25. but may be cancelled because of
"pressure from outside sources“, said
several SCB advisors.

In the council meeting, Mark Lusk, SCB
cinema chairman, presented a resolution
supporting the film‘s showing after he
explained it had been cancelled im-

LUSK SAID he was not informed of the
decision to cancel the film and did not
know about it until four days later. He
added he was not consulted concerning the
action and improper channels were used.

The film was temporarily cancelled by
SCB program advisor, Charles O‘Neill.
Temporarily cancelled means the movie
may still be obtained until one month
before it is scheduled to be shown.

Therefore, if it is not cancelled by Friday
SCB will have to pay $375 for the film.

O‘Neill said he “can‘t find out where the
pressure is coming from" in opposition to
the film, but told the council he knew a lot
more than he was saying.

HE ADDED the movie was con~
troversialbecause it has previously drawn
attention in the Lexington area and
gathers attention because “erotic” is in
the title.

The film was to be shown at a cinema in
Lexington, according to O‘Neill, but was
not because police said it would be con—
fiscated if shown.

Films can be confiscated at the SC
Theatre by UK or Lexington police,
according to County Attorney E. Lawson
King. King said to his knowledge the
Lexington police have never seized a film
on campus.

Ll'SK I-INCOL'RAGED the council to
stand by their former decision approving
the movies and said there had apparently
been some pressure from unknown
sources to forbid the movie’s showing.

Moral pressures

Censorship is a four-letter word.

So called moralistic people impress their it-
ching desire to prevent the rise of prurient in-
terest on the public. Though the object of ob-
scenity is on a you-don’t-have-to-unless-you-
want-to basis, our self-appointed censors deem
themselves competent judges in limiting

freedom of choice.

Such a situation may be raised on campus.
Considerable concern has been voiced on
possible censorship of “Best of the New York
Erotic Film Festival” scheduled to be shown
under the auspices of the Student Center Board

Film Series.

The function of the University should not be
that of baby sitter for campus morals. Un-
fortunately precedent has been set by the official
Lexington baby sitter, E. Lawson King. He in-
curred the wrath of righteous citizens upon the
evils of cinema sex, thereby putting pressure on
the University’s decision.

Cinema sex and standards of obscenity are
difficult to fathom under our local obscenity
crusader. While the sexual promiscuity depicted
in “The Devil in Miss Jones” was considered
obscene and thereby confiscated, “The Exor-
cist” was given an “R” rating.

“The Exorcist” contained a scene depicting a
young girl masturbating with a crucifix while
yelling “Fuck me, Jesus.” The only redeeming
factor here was one girl out of her mind with
lust; the other out of her mind with the devil.
Clearly, local obscenity is judged by perceived
intent rather than content.

The University should not dictate what should
or should not be seen by students. Regretfully,
they have the power. We hope it is not exercised.

A flip of the coin shows the Greek side


This is not to be mistaken for an attack
on Miss Stewart or her article. Everyone is
entitled to their opinion and she has voiced
hers (Greeks: ‘mindless group creatures'.
Kernel. Feb. 25). I personally disagree
with many of Miss Stewart's
generalizations and would like to present
the other sideof the coin. I can speak only
for one of the many Greek organizations on
this campus. however, I would like to think
that the others are of the same opinion.

Greek organizations were established to
foster and develop high ideals, scholastic
achievement, leadership responsibility
and citizenship, contributions to and
participation in college programs and
objectives. well-rounded and responsible
character and personality. and
brotherhood for purposeful living.

A GREEK organization is a testing
ground and a learning experience within
an institution of learning. It is a testing
ground for one‘s ability to establish bonds

with others and it is an experience in
learning what we must give to relation-
ships with others in order to make these
associations worthwhile.

Group cooperation in such philan-
thropic projects as the Greek Work Day or
Adopt-A-House typifies the goal of a Greek
organization. Doubtless these same
participants will be active in community
service in later years through such
organizations as the Jaycees, Rotarians,
Woman‘s Club. etc. They have been made
aware of the gratification that results from
such participation.

1 do not question the fact that many
people join fraternities or sororities
merely for psuedo status or for the social
opportunities. Perhaps the majority do.
However, soon after initiation these same
people begin to see the true purpose of
their organization and the many benefits
to be reaped through active participation
in its projects, committees, etc.

I DO NOT question the fact that many
people join fraternities because of in-
secure feelings. However, if these in—
dividuals develop self-confidence and
direction as the result of brotherhood or
sisterhood, have they not made the right
move‘? Has the Greek system done a
disservice by helping this person prepare
for the outside world?

I am not one of those who feels that the
world would collapse without Greeks.
Greek involvement is not the backbone of a
university, neither is it the cancer. I am
personally thankful for the opportunity I
have had of belonging to a Greek
organization, however. I have been
motivated by those around me and have
gained many valuable experiences which
will be of utmost importance in later
years. Through Greek involvement I have
come in contact with numerous individuals
and situations that would otherwise have
passed me by. I personally have benefited.
Perhaps others have not.

I do not place myself above non-Greeks
or anti—Greeks. These are many who I am
certain would lose rather than gain from
Greekism; Fine. 1 don’t condemn these
people. Neither do I expect to be labeled as
an insecure, spineless juice freak, con-
cerned only with impressing others with
my Greek letters. I am concerned with
purposeful involvement and with making
,new and lasting acquaintances. For me,
Greekism has fulfilled my concern, and I
haven't had to sacrifice my individuality
or an excessive amount of money.

I SPEAK for one Greek organization.
However. on behalf of all campus
organizations, both Greek and non-
Greek—“Let's be objective in our ob-
servations‘ ‘.
