New forms of adversity challenge diversity

reality for some his students.

In his first sLiiiestei'. l,eroy
Young said three wltite stti~
d1 111s asked him. at different
points 111 time. if he had come
to [K on .111 athletic scholarv

“l somewhat expected it

Young. .1 political science

Melissa Moore. .1 sctiior
politiLal science and l’nglish
major. has only one Llass iii
winch there are more than
one or two other blacks. Vl'hat
is .1 social work class, where
athletes comprise the inaioi'ity
ol the minority students.

More often than not.
\loore walks into the class and
finds herself pleased .11 the
sitfht of another lilaLk Sliltlt'll'.

She was borit and raised in
lktltiinore. and never found
herself worried about these
types of problems.

“Maybe itVs because it was .1
bigger city. or I was just

younger. htit I doth reiiietnher

all these conflicts." Moore said.

“\\Vhen I moved to Lexing-
ton 111 198.". it was all I heard."

Moore. .1 former Miss Black
LVIsV. .ilso laments the changes
the campus has undergone
since her arrival. \\Vhen she
first got here as a freshman, she
remembers the black students
speaking to each other as a sign
11f recognition. Now, she says.
all that has changed.

“Here all almost the .sattie
age. btit it's like .1 totally dif—
ferent generation," Moore
said. “It‘s one thing to he one
of the ‘lonely‘, htit when yoti
don‘t even get respect from
your own. it hurts."

I’re—pharmaey sophomore
I .al)onda Shearer agrees.

“\Vhen I was a freshman.
even if we didn't know each
other. we were like. ‘I Icy. how
you doing?" " Shearer said.

anymore. even though we're
here for the same purpose."
Shearer faces the same
problem as Moore when it
cotites to black student rcpre~
sentation. She has only one
class with tiiore than three
black students, and she esti—
mates the percentage in that
class at about 3; percent.
Shearer says it‘s .1 totally differ;
L-nt environment walking into a
class as the only black student.
“I feel isolated." Shearer



said. “I want to talk to every—
body regardless. but soinL'v
times they look at me like,
‘\\hat is she talking abotit?‘l
just sit 111 my own little world."

Moore says one of the
problems encouraging the
separation ofthe black student
population is the large num-
her of minority j'iotips on
campus. li'om thL National
-\ssoci.ition of lilack '\ceoun~
tants to the .\ational Society

“\\Ve split ourselves tip so

Moore who has noticed the

“It pretty iiitich bothers
everybody." Young said.

feel as if you re still alone."

\oting came to LVK from
Louisville Manual I ligh School,

one w hiLh was maiority white.
btit very diverse nonetheless,

He admits that when he
walks to class and sees another
black student. he feels somev
what relieved.

"It‘s like .1 bond. \‘le all
have something 111 common."
Voting saltl. "If we took hall

would be like me going to an

UK students are now eligible
for scholarships to work as intcrns
for 10 weeks with Project Vote
Smart, the major program ofThc
Center for National Indepen-
dencc in Politics.

Project Vote Smart was found—
cd by former scnators Barry Cold-
water, Gcor rc McGovern, Bill
Bradley, Mar ' Hatfield and other
national leadcrs such as Geraldine
Ferraro and Newt Gingrich.

It is a national non-partisan
organization that focuses on arm-
in citizens with the most power—
fuT tool in a democracy: factual,
relevant, unbiased information
about the political system, candi—
dates and elected officials.

Adelaide: Elm, a historian for
the organization, said students

gain more than a résumé booster.

“Students not only get to visit a
beautiful part of the country, but
they gain skills in retrieving this
type of information while per-
forming a great service to our
nation," she said.

College students and volun—
teers make up 90 percent of the
Project Vote: Smart team. Staff
and volunteers provide access to
campaign finance data, voting
records, performance evaluations
by competing spccial interest

and iographical information on

and state legislative office.

March 5.

The fair will focus on physics, astrono—

It will fcaturc representatives from profes—
sional schools, graduate programs, rovcrn-
rncnt agencies such as thc FBI and the U.S.
Marshal's Office, along with representatives

Somc ofthc companies attending the carccr
fair arc Acrotcch, Columbia Natural Gas,
\Vycth-Aycrst, Southwest Research Institute,
the Natural Resources and Environmental

Protection Agency and the Kentucky Geologi—

“I‘Lach collcgc is showing renewed interest
and impetus in promoting career fairs on

good way for students to see how their major

In addition to the career fair, the biological

Incrcascd interest in the environment has

Road warriors kick Tiger tail

Slyeppardir 25
lead UK to 39th

conference title

By Jay G. Tate

Spurn l'Iz/IIHI'

ALIBL'RN, Ala. w A casual glance at LIK's
halftime statistics of last night's game at
Auburn might have set off alartiis.

Cetiter Nair Alohaniiiied _.,_ L'K‘s leading
scorer ~~~ was without a field goal, without a
point and without a rebound.

But Auburn's defensive efforts in the post
paid few dividends as the Cats (25-4, li-Z
Southeastern Conference) looked everywhere
but the paint for an efficient 81-58 wiii over
Auburn last night w a victory which clinched
L3K’s 39th SI‘IC regular—season title.

“\Ve're all excited about winning an SI‘IC
Championship because it was one of otir
goals coming into this season." L'K forward
Scott Padgett said. “But we can't be satisfied
with just that. \Ve have to take two more
steps (next week's SI‘IC ’IIourn-aiiient attd the
NCAA 'IIournainent) in accomplishing all
out goals. "

I wo quick fouls in the game s opening
minutes relegated .\Iohainiiied to the L K
bench for much ofthe first half. He managed
just three points for the night. 'IIhough
\Iohainiiied s reliable presence inside has
paced the( Zats offense for much of the season,
Big Blue was nonetheless without worry.

\n early I] 3 UK run sparked by three
consecutive Padgett field goals fueled the( ats
to a 21—] I lead midway through the first half.
Minutes later. Big Blue scored on eight-of—ll)
possessions late to extend its lead to as tiiuch
as 18 poitits.

As LIK continued to surge offensively. the
Tigers were devoid of response.

\uburn hit only eight field goals and scored
just 36 points thriiugh the first 20 minutes.

“It was just no contest — you ve got to hit
shots to heat Kentucky". Auburn head coach
Cliff I‘Illis said. “\Ve never could answer theii
runs. \Ve never could get a run going. It
seemed like every time we touched the hall
early on we ttirned it over. I”

And over And over I he I igcrs notched six
turnovers in the game s first six minutes.

But the story was much different for the
Cats through the first half.

Scott Padgett was 6—of—6 from the field._leff

Sheppard was S—ofJ) for 12 points. Center

.I'Jttl‘d‘al Magloire notched six rebounds and

four points in Mohammed's absence. I‘Iach LIK
starter tallied an assist and the Cats balanced
their 1 I assists with just six turnovers.

Life in the Big Blue camp after the first lialf

was good — LIK was up 42- 26.

“Our guys really rose up to challenge every
pass and men shot and did a good job," L K
he ad coach I iibliy Smith said.

L K s defensive arousal continued itito the
second half as the Cats allowed Auburn to
shoot only 38 percent from the field. Constant
L'K pressure provided Big Blue a host of fast—
break opportunities throughout the second



half and turned a bad Auburn loss iitto a colos—
sal disaster.

\\ e re playing our best when we get
offtiise off of our defense," said Sheppard who
finished with a career—highl 5 points. “\\ e got
some easy ste ils atid got some breaks and some
e isy dunks

I ast night‘s game was a cruel reversal for
the Tigers. who whipped arch—rival Alabama
by i—I points here last month. 'IIliou rh LIKIs
witi last night was of a lesser iitiigititiitle on the
scoreboard. this was Auburn's’ Senior Day.

And it was easily the 'lIigers' worst home
loss of the season.

his final home game. "It seemed like we were
