The Sexual Safety and Awareness
task force last night formulated a
policy that calls for the distribution
of condoms on the UK campus by
next semester.

The proposal will go before the
Student Government Association
senate at its meeting two weeks
from today.

The SGA senate on Sept. 9 ap-
proved the formation of a task force
'0 study the prevention of Sexually

Transmitted Diseases. Last night
was the first meeting of the six-
member task force.

SGA President Cyndi Weaver said
that as she understands it, the policy
proposal, if passed by the senate,
would go to Vice Chancellor for Stu-
dent Affairs James Kuder for his ap-

The condom proposal is divided
into three sections.

Section three deals with the actual
distribution of condoms on campus.
The proposal calls for the placement
of condom dispenser machines in
the basement bathrooms of six dor-

Universityof Kentucky. Lexingt

mitories on the UK campus in the
spring semester.

Dispensers would be placed in
Blazer. Holmes, Donovan and Hag-
gin halls, and Kirwan and Blanding

The task force‘s policy proposal
also recommends that Vice Chan-
cellor for Administration Jack Blan-
ton’s office carry out the bidding
process for the condom dispensers.

UK should require the company
that provides the machines to en-
sure maintenance and quality of
product. the proposal says.

Section one of the proposal calls

for SGA and Student Health Services
to co-sponsor forums promoting sex-
ual awareness, transmission of dis‘
eases and Aquired Immune Defi-
ciency Syndrome. The section also
allows for SGA-sponsored forums to
discuss alternatives to sex.

The section states that any profit
made from the condom dispensers
will go to UK health services for the
promotion of sexual awareness.

In conjunction with the policy pro-
posals in section one. the task force
will recommend that some sort of
sexual awareness seminar be of-
fered during freshman orientation.

SGA to hold meeting
tonight at Commons;
plans to move meetings

Associate Editor

Susan Bridges believes that last
year's Student Government Associa.
tion made more people interested in
SGA. So tonight, the SGA senate will
hold its biweekly meeting at 306
Complex Commons.

The SGA senate usually holds its
meetings in the Student Center, but
with the exception of the SGA sen-
ators, the meetings are isually poor-
ly attended by students.

One reason for that. Bridges said.
is because most of UK‘s population
lives on the south side of campus.
By holding tonight's meeting at the
Commons Complex, she said the
meeting should be better attended.

If 15 people would show up “jist
to watch and see what‘s going on,“


“I think there's a
different attitude
towards everything

Susan Bridges
SGA senior vice president


Bridges said she would consider the
meeting well-received.

Another reason for having a trav-
eling SGA senate is to make it
“more accessible to our constituents
and our students," Bridges said.

A traveling SGA senate was im-
plemented three years ago when
John Cain was SGA senior vice pres-
ident, but the meetings were not
heavily attended.


However, Bridges said that was
"three years ago and I think the stu-
dent body has changed since then."

“I think there‘s a different atti-
tude towards everything on campus
by the students and hopefully SGA is
one of those things," she said.

In addition to tonight’s meeting at
the Complex Commons, other SGA
senate meetings will be held at other
sites around campus.

Speaker discusses troubled history
of blacks, its influence on future

“We have been on this piece of

from “We Know This Place." a

at a discussion held yesterday at
The Martin Luther King Jr. Cultural

“Ounces for the future: Vision a-

The proposal's second section rec-
ommends that condoms be made
available at the student health cen~
ter in “much the same way" stu-
dents can now purchase over the
counter drugs. A spermicide should
also be made available to students.

SGA President Cyndi Weaver said
the task force went ahead and
formed a proposal last night be-
cause the task force “needed to get
beyond the sensationalism and the
hype” that the issue has caused.

SGA to debate office hours,
basing salaries on attendance

Associate Editor

The Student Government Associa-
tion Senate will consider an amend-
ment tonight that would base sen—
ators' salaries on their attendance
at mandatory SGA functions.

If the amendment is adopted. SGA
senators would also be required to
schedule and attend a regular office
hour each week.

Senators receive a $150 salary
each semester. Salaries are funded
by money from student activity fees.

The amendment‘s sponsor. SGA
Senior Vice President Susan
Bridges, said she proposed the
amendment to make “SGA more ac-
cessible to students and to project a
more positive image that we are

Senators will also be more in
touch with what is going on at least
a week in advance. Bridges said.

the amendment is good. SGA Com-

said SGA senators shouldn‘t be re-
quired to hold the same office hours
throughout an entire semester be-
cause “it‘s hard enough getting

you have a busy schedule. "

Fowler said it is also unfair to
base salaries on attendance.

Rose’s loneliness is evident from
the start while Cliff’s is pent up
according to Picasso. “Rose’s jail

Rodgers also drew the parallel be-
tween the characters’ environments
and a prison cell. “The set is de-
signed so that you get an image of a
cage." said Sykes. “There are poles
at the top of the set. She’s boarded
up the windows and she locks the
door every time she enters the
room. The only time she leaves is to
go to work or to pay the bills.”

“The cage is controlled by her on
the inside, not by an outside keep-
er." said Rodgers. “It is her space

He thus becomes like an animal that

The dusty reel rolls and scratchy
film appears on the screen. Ancient
football players trudge off the field
with mud and clods of dirt splat-
tered on their uniforms.

The good old days. Swept under by
thepassof time.

“Football is just like anything out-
side the realm of football,“ UK de-
fensive back Ron Mack said. “It
changes with the times."

Perhaps the greatest change in
football is where the game is now
played. Even sports can’t avoid the
fast pace of high technology. Some-
one stretched a green carpet across
a concrete parking lot and called it
a field. Play ball.

And on Saturday the Cats will play

taste of the fake stuff. Not everyone
is hungry for plastic.

too many turf fields. It's bad on the
kneesand ankles.”

UK trainer Al Green agreed the
pounding on Astro'l‘urf can wreak
havoc on leg joints. But he said the
turf in general may have acquired a
bad injury rap over the years.

“It depends on what study you
look at." Green said. “Several stud-
ies show that it increases injuries,
several show it decreases injuries
and several show that it doesn’t
make a difference.

“What has been found is that turf
is somewhat injury specific. You
tend to see more specific injuries
like turf toe or infection from turf

Precautions are taken to prevent
the bums. UK will take plenty of
extra tape and pads to the Mead-

“You have to wear pads all over
your arms or else you lose all the
skin you have," linebacker Chris
Chenault said.

Skin can be saved. Knees and an-
kles aren't always so lucky. A sharp
cut could mean having to go under a
sharp knife.

“You have to round your cuts off
more," Chenault said. “Once you
plant your foot, you have to be care~
ful it doesn‘t stick.“

Green said the turf isn‘t at total

fault for injuries. Many times it‘s
the shoes players wear. Yes, the

“When it first came out, turf was
an injury reducer." Green said.
”But then you only had one football

“Now you got turf shoes and wet
turf shoes. And with some of the turf
shoes you can go run down the field,
have it grab and blow out a knee
without even touching anybody.“

The players said they never have
such painful thoughts. They can‘t.

“As an athlete. you can't be really
concerned with getting injured,"
Mack said. “Guys who worry about
getting hurt are guys who get hurt."

“You don’t really think about it,“
Chenault said. “You just play."

UK coach Jerry Claiborne doesn‘t
worry about the field either. When
he started coaching there wasn‘t As-
troTurf. He didn't think about it
then. He doesn‘t think about it now.

“You only worry about the things
you can control,“ Claiborne said.
“You can‘t control the weather and
you can‘t control what you're play-
ing on. We‘ll go up there and play on
a pool table if we have to.“

Players and coaches don't find ar-
tificial turf to be allevil. For those
who rely on speed and finesse. the
fake grass is a joy.

Chenault said. “The game really
picks up."

The Wildcats are ready to pick up
and move to the green concrete of
New Jersey.

stranger to UK this weekend. The
friendly fans of Commonwealth Sta-
dium will be left behind for the first
time this season. Don't doubt they'll
be missed.

Rutgers is expecting between
25,000 and 30,000 fans at the Mead~
owlands Saturday. That would leave
about 50,000 empty seats. That
means less enemy noise and that's
fine with the Cats.

“It’s really bad at places like
ISU. Georgia or Florida,“ Higgs
said. “Those are the hardest places
to play. You can‘t hear because the
crowds are so loud. It kind of shakes
you up.

“This week. it won‘t be so bad be-
cause their stadium is so big it won‘t

Mack agreed. Nothing can com-
pare to some of the Southeastern
Conference dens.

“I don‘t think this crowd will be
much of a factor.“ he said. “Now.
the SEC crowds. they take their
football serious. I don‘t know what
the Rutgers crowd will have to offer.
but I don‘t expect they'll be as bad
as the SEC crowds."

- UK could win more than a game
if they play well in East Rutherford.
A little respect could also come with
the trip.

The Meadowlands is just across
the bay from New York City —-
media capital of the world. The nor-
mal crunch of notepads and camer-
as will be much greater in the lock-
er room Saturday. The Cats know
they better look good.

“The coaches have told us it
might get us in the Top 20 if we can
impress the press people up east."
Higgs said.

0 UK assistant coach Farrell Sher-
idan will have the road on his mind
after the game. Sheridan is a native
of Rutherford, New Jersey and still
has relatives who live about 20 miles
from the stadium.

"He told us to win one for him so
he can go home.“ Higgs said.

SGA amendment
would ensure body
is students’ voice

Tonight, the UK student government will consider a
constitutional amendment to force itself to be the students’

If passed. Student Government Association Senators‘
salaries would be based on their attendance at mandatory
functions like senate meetings. committee meetings, office
hours and orientation.

Senators currently receive $150 each semester in com-
pensation for the time and effort they put into their job.

Basing salaries on the fulfillment of responsibilities is a
good idea.

In the past, SGA has had problems with attendance at
meetings. and both it and the students have been short-
changed as a result. It's impossible to have a productive
senate if its members aren’t there to vote on legislation.
It’s equally impossible to truly represent the student body
if members aren‘t there to voice the students’ opinion and

This amendment would help in keeping the senate effec-

The amendment would also address a controversial
topic among past SGA senates — office hours.

As representatives of the students, senators — especial-
ly those who represent particular colleges —— should be ac-
cessible to the students. It's frustrating enough to get stu-
dents to express their concerns. Not providing the outlet
for them to voice these opinions would destroy what little
success is made in that area.

Making it mandatory that senators be accessible to stu-
dents in the SGA office for at least one scheduled and regu-
lar hour a week (as this amendment would), would ensure
this outlet for students.

True, the need for attendance at meetings and office
hours has been argued before, but this amendment would
give some teeth to its enforcement.

There are about 30 events — senate meetings, commit-
tee meetings, office hours and orientation — that senators
are required to attend each semester. according to Susan
Bridges. SGA senior vice president and sponsor of the pro-
posed amendment. If. after two absences, senators miss
these events, they will lose about $5 for each absence

Granted. for most senators, such an amendment isn’t
necessary. They are dedicated and interested enough to
show up.

But for those senators who are conspicuously absent
meeting after meeting and are extremely hard to get in
contact with, this amendment should make one thing clear
to them: If you want the benefits and privileges of being
an SGA senator, you have to fulfill the responsibilities, too.
