Day after: Cuban immigrants recovering in solidarity with Elian


MIAMI Easter —»- one
of the holiest of days in Little
Havana and the rest of the
Christian world , found
Marta Rodriguez praying for
a little boy she knows only
from a distance but. like
many, calls by his first name.

“Pobre Elian.“ the 71-
year-old Cuban immigrant
said after Mass at St. John
Bosco Church, where Elian's
great-uncle and cousins have
attended services.

“He should never have
been treated this way." she
said in a grandmotherly tone.
“My heart is broken."

So it was for many Mia-

mi Cubans beginning life
without the 6-year-old boy re-
united with his father in
Washington after a swift and
stunning pre-dawn Saturday
raid by federal agents. For
the first time in five months.
Elian was gone from Miami.

During protests that last-
ed into Sunday morning. po-
lice clad in riot gear arrested
more than 350 people and
cleared away thousands
more demonstrators from
Little Havana. Protesters set
more than 200 tires, burning
mostly tires and trash. but
there were few serious injuries.

But not everyone in Lit-
tle Havana was upset.

“I‘m in agreement that

Dead week: SGA wants the
name to reflect the pace

By Allison SEE?!


The Student Government Association
wants to make (lead week, the hectic week
before finals. a little more stressfree.

"We're Working on a proposal to move
the academic calendar up two days." said
Edwin ()range. a political science junior
and SGA senator.

The proposal would mean that the se~
mesters would start on Monday. instead of
Wednesday. The change would let classes
finish on Wednesday. which would leave
'l‘liursday and Friday open for students to
regroup themselves for exam week.

(‘lasses would still meet the
amount of time. ()range said.

The l'niversity's policy on dead week
states that no exams should be given except
for lab practicals or make-up exams.

But many students feel that the load of
work they carry during dead week is far
too heavy.

“Dead week is always worse than exam
week." said Beth Wookey. a communica-
tions senior. “With all the papers. projects
and presentations that students have dur-
ing dead week. it is hard to stay energized
and focused for exams the following week."

An earlier SGA proposal was consid-
ered two days ago by the t‘iiiversity Senate
(‘ouncil This proposal would have made it
impossible for professors to make papers
due during dead week.

“It was rejected because they felt that it
might not help the students." ()range said.

The main concern from this proposal
was that it could make professors move up
the due date for papers one week or more.

"The Senate has got to come up with a
proposal that is good for students. as well
as faculty.” said Roy Moore. chairman of
the Senate (‘ouncil

A compromise that will please students
and professors may be a challenge.

Dr. Deborah Witham. professor of agri
culture communications, assigns papers to
be due during dead week because she wants
enough time to grade them thoroughly,

"1 put the paper's due date on the syl~
labus at the beginning of the year.” she
said. “Students have known about it all so

The council will look at the new pror
posal this summer. which could be passed

liked the proposal.

“It will allow students to finish their
assignments. and have a nice break to ei-
ther study or relax before finals.“ she said.

”I'm not too stressful. because I'm so

become overly stressed as the semester

last minute to finish assignments and pre

“You've got to be on top of the game at

at the end." she said

Pope urges end to racism, Xenophobia

VATICAN CITY »— Capping a grueling Holy
Week schedule. a weary-sounding Pope John
Paul I] offered Easter wishes for peace in 61 lan-
guages and called on the world Sunday to end
racism and xenophobia. So many Holy Year pil-
grims. tourists and Romans turned out for the
pope‘s late-morning Mass in St. Peter‘s Square

at noon, the crowd, numbering close to 150,000.

the Vatican. Sounding tired toward the end of the
two-hour appearance. John Paul expressed hope
that the sense of life associated with Easter may
“overturn the hardness of our hearts" and “im-

Elian photos are disputed

WASHINGTON -_ In the hours since Elian
Gonzalez was taken from the home of his Miami
relatives. conspiracy theories abound over pho-
tos of the child released after he arrived at a mil-
itary base to be with his father. Attorneys for
Elian‘s father, Juan Miguel Gonzalez. released
the pictures yesterday. Critics compare the fa-
ther's photo with one captured during the raid in
Miami just hours earlier by a photographer for
The Associated Press. In the pictures with his fa-
ther. critics say Elian‘s hair is longer than in the
AP photo and that he appears to no longer have a
missing tooth. Joan Brown Campbell of the Na-
tional Council of Churches. a friend of Juan
Miguel Gonzalez who was present when father
and son were reunited. criticized those alleging a
conspiracy. “There was real affection there that
cannot be manufactured." she said on ABC‘s
"This Week."

Road to Miss America

Not just a pretty face: Pageants combine
talent, looks and personality for competition

By Millinda Rumble


Little girls often dream of
growing up to become Miss
America. This is an opportuni-
ty that a few l'K students may
get this summer as they com—
plete in the Miss Kentucky
Pageant. a preliminary to Miss

According to the organiza-
tion‘s web page. the purpose of
the Miss America Pageant is to
“provide personal and profes-
sional opportunities for young
American women and promot-
ing their voice in culture. poli-
tics and the community."

Both the Miss Kentucky
and the Miss America pageants
are scholarship pageants. Each
contestant is eligible for schol-
arship money regardless of
whether or not they win.

In order to be eligible to
compete the girls must win a lo
cal title. After winning that
crown they head to Lexington
for the Miss Kentucky pageant.

The pageant is based on tal-

ent, evening gown competition.
swimsuit competition and an
interview. It lasts three days in
June _ the first two days each
contestant participates in all
four categories. 0n the final
day. the top 10 finalists are an-
nounced. Then the finalists
compete in all the areas again.

The contestants think the
pageant offers them excellent

Shanna McGlone. a politi-
cal science and communica-
tions junior. who competed in
the pageant last year said the
experience was beneficial.

"You gain a lot from Miss
Kentucky.“ she said. "Every-
thing you do benefits you. If
you Work out. you better your
self physically. If you practice
interviews. you learn skills that
will help in the future.“

A big part of the pageant is
a platform that each of the con
testants must work on for an
entire year. The platform in-
volves each participant devot-
ing time to a community
service project that they

personally choose.

Mary Catherine Correll. a
chemistry freshman. said the
contestants usually pick their
platform because of a personal
experience in their lives.

Her platform is the Nation-
al Marrow Donor Program. She
decided on this platform be-
cause she knew two children
who needed bone marrow
transplants. Correll has dedi-
cated many days working with
her platform. but says it is

“1 am passionate about my
platform." she said.

Correll dismissed any
stereotypes about the pageant.

“It is a very prestigious
pageant. Miss America is a
well-rounded person with dy-
namics. She is not just a pretty
girl in a swimsuit.“ she said.


Miss Kentucky will be held June
22. 23 and 24 In Noggin
Auditorium at Transylvania
University. Tickets are $20 for
June 22, $20 for June 23'and $25
for the final night.



Vermont close to gay bill

Short of gay marriage: A Vermont bill
would extend marriage benefits to gays


A bill that would create the
closest thing in America to gay
marriage won final approval in
the Vermont state Senate last

Stopping short of recogniz-
ing gay marriages. the measure
would enable gay couples to
form “civil unions“ that would
entitle them to all 300 or so
rights and benefits available
under state law to married cou-
ples. There was no guarantee
other states would recognize
the unions, but no residency re-
quirement that would bar cou-
ples from other states from
coming here to unite at least

UK's gay and lesbian com-
munity think it's a step in the
right direction.

“I believe any progress
made in the battle for same sex
marriages is a step in the right
direction.“ said Ryan LaFol-
lette. student area coordinator
for Amnesty International and
a foreign language and interna—
tional economics junior.

The 19-11 vote mirrored
preliminary approval that was
given to the bill last Tuesday.
The bill now returns to the
House for consideration of
changes to the House-approved

Democratic Gov. Howard
Dean has said he will sign
the bill.

The biggest difference be-
tween the House and Senate
bills is the effective date. Under
the Senate proposal. the first
civil unions could take place be-
ginning July 1. The House set
the date two months later.

Before the vote. senators
turned aside one amendment
that would have stated in state
law that one of the central pur-
poses of marriage is procre~

Only about two dozen peo-
ple lined the Senate galleries. in
contrast to crowds that filled
corridors on Tuesday. Most of
them wore pink stickers signal»
ing their support for the bill.

There was little reaction in
the chamber when the vote to-
tal was announced by Lt. Gov.
Douglas Racine. but once the
Senate adjourned. there were
hugs and tears.

”It‘s great that it passed."
said Beth Robinson. one of the
lawyers who successfully ar-
gued before the Supreme Court
that gay and lesbian couples
were being unconstitutionally
denied the benefits of marriage.

“What‘s greater to me is
the margin by which it passed."
Robinson said. “That shows me

gays and lesbians need and de-
serve the same protections
as heterosexuals in our
society and that‘s a great

made to have same sex mar-

House Speaker Michael
Obuchowski said he would hold
the House vote next Tuesday
and was confident it would win
final approval in that chamber.

UK offense routs: The Blue team
won, but both offenses succeeded



Saturday’s 4521 victory by the Blue squad in
the annual Blue-White spring scrimmage was
like the Sunday Night Disney family movie —
nothing too sexy, plenty of familiar faces and a
predictable story line.

The Blue squad, comprised mainly of first
and second-teamers, dominated the charts on
both otfense and defense, and if not for two 80-
yard touchdown receptions by Anthony Kelly and
Earnest Simms of the White squad. the numbers
would have been even more lopsided.

But the 5,200 in attendance were treated to a
good show of offense by the Blue team, led by
tight end Derek Smith's eight catches and 492
yards passing by Dusty Bonner and Jared Loren-

“I think both teams just wanted to play hard
and have fun," Smith said. “Today was more of a
fun scrimmage than it is really to come out and
try and get some business done.”

“I really don’t ever read a lot into the Blue-
White game,” coach Hal Mumme said, “because
we've got all the guys who are basically going to
do the playing on one side against all the others.
There’s a lot more to be learned in scrimmage sit-
uations on the two previous Saturdays. when we
go good-on-good for 100 plays."

And during those times, Bonner solidified his
status as the starting quarterback. leaving Loren-
zenas the backup. But Lorenzen had the best of-
fensive game of anyone, completing 22-of-33 for

318 yards and two touchdowns.
“He’s definitely gotten better with experi-
ence." Bonner said of Lorenzen, “just as everyone

does. He‘s gotten a little more confidence, and the

guys know that if you give him the ball, he’s go~
ing to give you a great effort every time."

Although his yardage was impressive,
Mumme reminded people that his opposition in
the BlueWhite game wasn‘t the same as facing
Florida or Tennessee.

“I would like to have seen Jared have this
kind of day the previous two Saturdays,” he said.
“But you're looking at a lot of walkon guys in the
secondary and in the underneath coverage.”

Speaking of exploiting underneath coverage,
the tight-end duo of Smith and Bobby Blizzard
showed why they will be a force to be reckoned
with in the fall. with the two combining for 14
catches and 186 yards receiving.

“Overall. I think I had a pretty decent
spring." Smith said. “I still had some mental mis-
takes during the spring, and in a couple of scrim-
mages I was cutting my routes off early, but
things went well for me today, and I‘m glad they

Another player who had things go well for
him was receiver Derek Abney. The Louisville
native, who missed last year with a pulled ham-
string. used his speed to outrun the defense on
two touchdown grabs of 78 and 59 yards. .

“It was real important for me to do well this
spring," Abney said. “I was fortunate to end it up
