4 Dr. Otis A. Singletary
President, University of Kentucky
SINGLETARY
he University of Kentucky has made great strides toward academic excellence since Dr. Otis A. Singletary assumed the office of president in August, 1969.
Two professional schools  dentistry and pharmacy  have been ranked among the best in the nation. Department such as political science, history and mathematics have gained national attention. The UK library now ranks among the best in the Southeast and a large portion of the world-wide research
related to tobacco and health is now done at UK.
Dr. Singletary had previously served as chancellor at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, executive vice chancellor for academic affairs in the University of Texas system and director for the Job Corps for the Office of Economic Opportunity. He holds degrees from Millsaps College and Louisiana State University.
In the 14 years he has been president, the University has grown to more than
23,400 students on the Lexington campus and about 21,000 students in UK's 13 community colleges, and the University has become one of the major research institutions in the country.
A native of Gulport, Miss., Dr. Singletary is the author of two books and several monographs. He is a member of Phi Beta Kappa Senate.
He and Mrs. Singletay, the former Gloria Walton, have three children: Bonnie, Scot and Kendall.

5 HAGAN
Cliff Hagan returned to the University of Kentucky in 1972 as assistant to athletics director Harry Lancaster and was assigned the task of implementing the Blue & White Fund for the 57,600-seat Commonwealth Stadium and later for the 23,000-seat Rupp Arena, home of the basket-hall Wildcats.
He replaced Lancaster as athletics director in July 1975; during the ensuring school year, Wildcat teams compiled one of the best records in the school's history, with the basketball team winning the National Invitational Tournament, the wrestling and rifle teams winning SEC titles and the baseball team winning the SEC Eastern Division.
The wrestling team repeated as conference champion the following year, the basketball team finished with a 26-4 record and advanced to the Eastern Regional finals while the football team won seven of 11 regular season games, shared the conference championship and defeated North Carolina in the Peach Bowl.
The football team compiled a 10-1 record and was undefeated in conference action in 1977 while the 1977-78 basketball team won the national championship.
While the athletics teams were winning championships, Hagan supervised an ever-expanding program that now operates with a budget approximating $6-/z million. Continued growth in practically all phases of UK athletics has been the hallmark of his reign as athletics director, with fine attendance at football and men's basketball games, increased attendance at Lady Kat basketball games (a national attendance record of 10,622 was set at the Lady Kat-Old Dominion game in Memorial Coliseum last season), and a steady upgrading of facilities.
One of the highlights of the past year was the awarding of radio rights to the UK basketball and football games to the Kentucky Network lor a high bid of $319,000 per year for a three-year period that extends through the
1985-86 season. The bid was almost double the winning bid of $168,750 submitted by the network three years earlier and only $3,900 more than the 1982 bid submitted by Jim Host & Associates, which held the broadcast rights for six years prior to 1979-80.
After negotiating with the Kentucky Network, which held -an option for three additional years, Hagan decided to re-bid the rights, which resulted in one of the finest radio broadcast packages in the collegiate world.
Also during the past year, the University successfully bid for the 1984 NCAA Volleyball championships to be held in December in Memorial Coliseum. The prestigious NCAA "Final Four" basketball championships will be hosted by the University in March 1985, with the Mideast Regional being held in Rupp Arena the preceding year.
Another big change on the athletics scene is elimination of wrestling as a varsity sport, a move designed to comply with federal regulations under Title IX, which also specifies that the University must increase the number of women participants and head coaches.
One of the newest additions to the department is an Academic Learning Center in Memorial Coliseum.
Hagan has been an advocate of a strong scholar-athlete program, feeling "a genuine commitment to provide all the academic support and encouragement we can to help our athletes leave our campus with a college education and a degree."

University of Kentucky Basketball Coach
Joe B. Hall begins his 12th season as head coach of the Kentucky Wildcats with one of the finest career records in college basketball.
While leading the Wildcats to a 23-8 record last year, Hall upped his 11-year UK record to 250-82, an average of 22.7 wins per season, to keep ahead of the. pace set by his former coach, Adolph Rupp, who averaged 21.5 victories a season over a 41-season span to become the winningest collegiate basketball coach of all time.
One of the finest compliments Hall has received during his coaching career came
IHIllillli lillfflllM    frorn Rupp, who died in ' ' 1977.
HKT~ a      'A good coach,"
Rupp said, "is a person who can take good ^^^^feiS    material and win with jij    it. Joe has done that." rffy'       Judging from Hall's fA- coaching honors, Rupp
was as usual, right on I* target with his
evaluation. B% Hall has won such
