Teacher evaluations draw different responses

Staff Writer

Student evaluations have long
been handled by the various depart-
ments and colleges of UK. but an
SGA publication scheduled to be re-
leased this week offers students a
chance to see how fellow students
rate some of the University‘s in-

The Student Government Associa-
tion distributed free teacher evalua-
tion booklets to the deans‘ offices on

The booklet is the result of ques-
tionnaires SGA circulated among,

dormitories, fraternities, sororities
and various spots across campus
last semester. They were also avail-
able in the SGA office.

Other colleges across the nation.
including some Ivy League schools.
are starting to do similar booklets.
said Carl Baker, director of the aca-
demic affairs committee.

The UK form is very similar to In-
diana University‘s form. according
to SGA President Cyndi Weaver. No
other Kentucky college student gov-
ernment has such a program. she

Up to eight teachers could be eval-
uated on each questionnaire. SGA

received 2.200 questionaires. with
about 6.000 evaluations in all.

Only classes that received at least
seven responses were included in
the booklet. Baker said. The basic
unit of evaluation was classes. not
teachers or sections. so each of a
teacher‘s classes was evaluated sep-

SGA received evaluations for 1.500
classes. and 288 classes met the
seven-response guideline. Baker
said. About 270 teachers are includ-
ed in the booklet, he said.

The booklet was part of Weaver‘s
campaign platform last spring.

"I think students have a right to

know what they‘re bargaining for"
when they register for classes.

The program‘s purpose is not
necessarily to rate teachers good or
bad. rather to indicate such points
as if the teacher is a good lecturer
or will answer questions outside of
class. Weaver said.

“I don‘t think professors need to
feel threatened by this." Weaver

And although SGA has assured
Donald Sands. vice chancellor for
academic affairs, that the report
will be a positive one, some UK offi-
cials are not that comfortable with

European cafe opened
in UK Student Center

Staff Writer

The red—and‘white awning hanging
above the entrance is but one exam-
ple of the decor that lends a distinc~
lively European flavor to the Stu-
dent Center.

The posters covering the walls —
all depicting scenic views from for-
eign countries — as well as the ar—
rangement of tables and chairs pro
vide a touch of authenticity to the
European Pastry Cafe. open this
week only.

The cafe. which sets up business
for one week each spring. is a joint
venture of the Cosmopolitan Club
and the International Hospitality
Program. The menu consists of pas-
tries from European countries.

It will be open 10 am. to 4 pm.
through Friday 245 Student Center.

The purpose of the weeklong pro-
ject is to raise money for the two
clubs. But there is an added incen-

tive this year. And that is to donate
money to the fund established for
Viji Jeganathan. a graduate student
from Sri Lanka who has been diag-
nosed as having leukemia and is in
need of a bone-marrow transplant.

Eight pastries, each $1.25, comple-

Lawsuit filed against Patton for decision

Associated Press

PlKEVlLLE — A Pikeville busi-
nessman who was told not to speak
to female employees at the Pike
County Courthouse has filed a law-
suit against Judge-Executive Paul
E. Patton alleging blatant violations
of Kentucky‘s Open Records Law.

Billy Hatfield filed the suit Friday
in Pike Circuit Court seeking to
overturn a directive Patton issued
Jan. 20 urging female county em-
ployees not to speak to Hatfield.

Hatfield also asked dlmlga of

$25 per day since Jan. 19 for alleged
open records violations. and said the
money would be turned over to a
local charity.

Attached to the lawsuit was a let—
ter Patton wrote to Hatfield Jan. 19
telling him that he was forbidden to
talk to the women workers. Patton’s
letter said anytime Hatfield wanted
to inspect county records. he first
should contact the judgeexecutive's
office and be assigned a male as

“You are to communicate only
with the male employee assigned to
act)" you." Patton wrote. ”You are

not to speak to any female county
employee in any way. You will be
forceably removed from any county
office if you exhibit hostile or abu-
sive behavior.“

The directive to county employees
also said any conversations with
Hatfield should be tape recorded.
Patton said he did not intend the di-
rective as an order to county work-
ers but only to establish guidelines
for alternative methods of dealing
with Hatfield. He said recording
conversations with Hatfield would
provide proof of whether he had

claimed in the lawsuit that the re—
strictions represented an abuse of
power aimed at preventing access to
public records. Both Hatfield and
Patton said the directive stemmed
from a Jan. 19 confrontation, when
Patton attempted to evict Hatfield
from the county purchasing office.

"The man just came in here and
intimidated and frightened several
of the female employees." Patton
said, “And I‘ve just laid down some

said. “Our faculty don‘t deserve that
sort of treatment. \\ e should not em-

County Jailer Jim Knauf said the
Community Service Program for
non-violent prisoners is ”really good
for everyone involved. It gives the

Judge~Executive Bob Aldemeyer
said the county no longer has the
manpower to clean all the highways
and parks in the county. The road
crew has been cut from more than
60 employees to less than 40 because
of budget constraints.

The county dropped the work-re-
lease program in 1970 when a new
jail opened in the Kenton County
Building in downtown Covington. At
first there was no way to separate
the violent and non-violent inmates.

Gov. Mecham convicted by
the Arizona state senate, 21-9

Associated Press

PHOENIX, Ariz. — The Arizona
Senate convicted Gov. Evan Mech-
am yesterday of attempting to
thwart a death—threat investigation,
making him the first US. governor
to be impeached and removed from
office in 59 years.

The vote was 21-9, with two-thirds
of the 30—member Senate needed for

Still pending was a vote on a sec-
ond impeachment charge — that be
misused a protocol fund by loaning
$80,000 to his auto dealership — and
a third vote, on whether to bar
Mecham from ever holding elective

The last governor to be impeached
and removed from office was Henry
Johnston of Oklahoma, who was re-
moved in 1929.

Yesterday‘s closing arguments
came as the impeachment trial en-
tered its sixth week.

A prosecutor beseeched the Arizo-
na Senate yesterday to convict Gov.
Evan Mecham of impeachment
charges, remove him from office
and “bring down the curtain on this
prolonged, embarrassing and bitter

The ringing last words of final ar-
gument from prosecutor Paul
Eckstein came moments after
Mecham’s lawyer demanded acquit-
tal, telling the 30 senators, “There
are not sufficient facts or law to find
that Evan Mecham is an evil man.“

“Let the people decide," said at-

torney Jerris Leonard, urging sen-
ators to acquit Mecham and let him
defend his office in a May 17 recall
election. Hecham also faces a trial
on criminal charges.

The arguments by both sides ad-
dressed two specific chargos: an al-
legation that the governor attempted
to obstruct an investigation of an al-
leged death threat by a staff mem-
ber and a second that he misused
$80,000 from a protocol fund by loan-
ing it to his car dealership.

Following the arguments, Arizona
Supreme Court Justice Frank X.
Gordon Jr., the trial’s presiding offi-
cer, told senators, “You are now in
your voting mode. "

Some senators indicated they
would like to delay voting until
Tuesday. Others said they had made
up their minds and were ready to
vote in yesterday‘s session, which
was to continue in the afternoon.
Voting was expected to take some
time, with each senator allowed to
make a speech before casting a

Several hundred Mecham support-
ers rallied outside the Senate build-
ing, listening to a brass band and
carrying placards demanding the
governor‘s return to office.

“Ignorance of the law is no de-
fense,” Eckstein told senators.

But Mecham's defense lawyer,
Fred Craft, told senators, “You‘re
being asked to politically assassi-
nate the governor. "

“He doesn't resign (as Mecham
has been urged to) because he‘s not
guilty of these charges," Craft said.

‘ ‘He dares to right city hall and he’s
doing it at great cost to himself."

Craft said in his closing argument
that the allegation was based on a
tin-second conversation with Depart-
ment of Public Safety Director
Ralph Milstead. Craft accused pros-
ecutors of seeking to “twist and tor-
ture it in such a way that it accounts
for an obstruction of justice."

As closing arguments proceeded,
a trumpeter played “Taps" outside
the Senate building as a group of
men carried a mock coffin labeled,
“Herein Lies the Right to an Elected

Removal of the Republican gover-
nor, who has been in office little
more than a year, required a two-
thirds vote of the 30-member Senate
on either of the two charges. If they
convicted him, the senators could
then take another vote on whether to
bar Mecham from ever holding of-
fice again.

There are 19 Republicans and 11
Democrats in the Senate.

A two-thirds vote for conviction
would remove Mecham from office
at the moment the gavel fell to close
the vote, and his successor, acting
Gov. Rose Mofford, would become
governor at the same moment.

If convicted, Mecham would be
only the seventh U.S. governor to be
removed by impeachment. The last
to meet that fate was Henry
Johnston of Oklahoma, who was re—
moved in 1929.

Weaver said. “That kind of consis-
tency would add a lot“ to the useful-
ness of the University evaluations.

Hill said he only takes the Univer-
sity forms seriously if a teacher is
either very good or very bad. The
University doesn't take the forms
seriously, he said, because teachers
do not change their teaching meth-

Deprez, however, said she thinks
the University takes them seriously.

“I don‘t think they would put them
out to cover up.“ she said. In the bi~
ology department “you don't see
teachers sticking around if they're
not good."

Sands said he does not think a
more consistent method of evaluat-
ing teachers is called for.

“Teaching means different things
in different areas and we probably
should be cautious about requiring a
uniform form for the whole
University," Sands said. “It‘s better

if they’re (the forms) tailored to
each college's — or maybe each pro-
gram‘s — needs.“

University evaluations are often
used when teachers are up for
raises, promotions or tenure.

“The student evaluations of teach-
ing is a strong component" of the in-
formation used to determine if tea-
chers within the Department of
Physics get raises or promotions,
said John Christopher, an associate
dean of the College of Arts and Sci-
ences and a professor in the physics

About 90 percent of the teachers'
performance rating in the College of

dents‘ evaluations, said Edgar
