ontroversy over trustee’s remark continues

At Gov.’s request, Chandler

calls statement

Executive Editor

tucky Gov. A.B. "Happy“ Chandler
yesterday apologized for a racial
comment he made during a UK
Board of Trustees committee meet-
ing Tuesday, saying his remark was
“regrettable. ”

Representatives of the UK Black
Student Political Caucus. however.
say they do not believe the apology
was sincere. and they intend to con-
tinue to push for Chandler's resigna~
tion from the board.

Chandler, though, said he had no
intention of resigning from the
board, despite public outcry asking
him to do so.

At a press conference at his Ver-
sailles home yesterday. Chandler
said he wished hadn't made the
statement which has caused so
much controversy in the last two

The remark. which appeared in

touched off controversy across cam-

The comment also drew condem«

statement was inappropriate. Chan»

Wallace Wilkinson asked him to.

“( Wilkinson ) indicated he
wouldn't ask me to (resign) under
any circumstances." Chandler said.
Wilkinson did ask Chandler to give a
public apology.

Chandler also pointed to his con

and Major League Baseball commis~

Staff Writer

What is the occasion when you
have 10,000 to 12.000 people fashion-
ably dressed. all watching horses
run around in circles. betting over
$1 million. eating burgoo. drinking
beer and having just a good time in

It could be the latest episode of
“Dynasty." But today it‘s the scene
at Keeneland as the track opens its
doors for the spring meet.

“We've been doing all the last-
minute things to get ready for the
opening day." said Jim Williams. di-
rector of publicity at Keeneland.
“This opening day should be espe—
cially good because Kentucky Derby
favorite 49’er will be racing for the
Lafayette Stakes.“

The big difference in this meet
from previous meets is the in-
creased purse sizes. according to
Williams. He said the Ashland
Stakes are increased by $50,000 to
$200,000 and the Bluegrass Stakes
are increased by $50,000 to 830.000.

But if you don‘t go to Keeneland
for the races. you can always go for
the fraternizing. food and fun.

“When people come to Keeneland
it‘s a total experience," said Larry
Wolken. president of Turf Catering.
Turf Catering has catered every.
thing for Keeneland since 1936.

“What people enjoy is the ambiance.
it‘s the best of grounds. racing and
quality of horses."

A large part of that traditional
ambiance is Bucky Sallee. Sporting
a green jacket. blue top hat and rid-
ing boots and a post horn. Sallee has
been the official bugler at
Keeneland for the past 24 years. And
he said Keeneland is like a fashion

“Tennessee is wrong. Kentucky
has beautiful women and fast
horses," said Sallee. “It looks like a
contest with everyone trying to out-
dress each other. We «the employ-
ees> watch the people."

In spite of the many job offers
Sallee has had. including the job of
bugler at Churchill Downs. Sallee
says he loves Keeneland. He has no
desire to leave and he is not afraid
of being replaced.

“The suit fits me so I don‘t have
to worry about it." siad Sallee. “It‘s
got my name inside the coat."

conjure up ideas of betting. beer.

off-season will have a great effect on
how they do in the fall."

Training success cannot be
gauged until Oct. 15. when basket-
ball practice officially begins again.
The fruits of recruiting are reaped
in five days. The national signing
date is next Wednesday.

“It seems to be going well," Sut-
ton coyly said of recruiting.

Kentucky has already begun to fill
the hole created by the graduation
of five seniors.

Prepsters Chris Mills. Sean Woods
and Shawn Kemp signed last fall.
That leaves two scholarships avail-
able. Sutton has his eye set on three

One. of course. is Richie Farmer
from Clay County. Sutton offered the
guard a scholarship last week but
Farmer put UK on hold. Farmer
still plans to visit Vanderbilt, West-
ern Kentucky and LSU.

The two other desired recruits are
big men. One is still in high school,
another already in college.

Prep center Don MacLean from
California has long been high on the
UK list. He's still debating UCLA.
The loss of inside players Rob Lock,
Winston Bennett, (‘edric Jenkins and
Richard Madison hike up MacLean's
stock with the (‘ats

tucky in the first round tomorrow
morning at It).

The tournament will also feature
Eastern Kentucky. Indiana State.
Cincinnati. the Cincinnati Law
School. Queen (‘ity and the Lexing-
ton ()ld Boys team. Finals will be at
1 Sunday afternoon at the coal field.

Gyninasts tumble in NCAA

The l9th-ranked UK gymnastics
team will compete in the NCAA
Southeast Regionals in Gainesville.
Fla. tomorrow. The Wildcats are
seeded third in the eight-team field.
which features No. 1 ranked Georgia
and third-ranked Florida.

The winner of the regional meet
will advance to the Nationals at
Ogden. Utah. on April 22 and 23rd.
The top five regional teams will
compete at the Nationals. Top indi~
vidual gymnasts will join the win—
ning team advance to the Nationals.

Maurice Britton of Hutchinson Ju-
nior College in Kansas is the third
prized recruit. Word is that Kansas'

national championship has his
thoughts swaying.
Another possible influence on

where both Britton and MacLean go
is where Larry Brown goes. The
Kansas coach is rumored to be
heading to UCLA.

A move by Brown could spur Brit~
ton and MacLean into who knows
what direction.

“Only time will tell,“ Sutton said.
"I would think it could affect the re-
cruitment of both of them."

Sutton said not to laugh if Ken-
tucky is able to land all three re-
cruits. Yes. just two scholarships
are available. But he said numbers
tend to work out in the end.

“I don’t think it‘s a chess game,"
Sutton said. “If we signed 22 it
would be a chess game."

Whatever the game. Sutton still
had his main thoughts on basketball.
He left the Lodge and hit the trail in
search of more pawns. In Lexington,
the dribbling never ends.

“There’s only 189 days until Mid-
night Madness," Sutton said. “Or
something like that."

Lee’s gotta have it

Independent filmmaker Spike Lee is determined to make movies his way


Staff Writer

lthough he didn't go to
college in the 1960's during
the Civil Rights movement.

filmmaker Spike Lee still saw plenty
of racial division during his days at

Atlanta‘s Morehouse College.

“You had the lightskinned girls
who everybody wanted and the light-
skinned guys who were real popular
with the girls,“ Lee said in a
telephone interview from Brooklyn.
“If you were real black, you might
as well forget about it."

Lee’s new film, “School Daze.“
which opens today at Turf land Mall,
explores these racial themes while
playing up the comedic events that
transpire during Homecoming Week
at the fictional Mission College

Lee messed around with Super-8
film while majoring in mass
communications at Morehouse. He
began to seriously pursue a film
career when he enrolled at New
York University's graduate film
school. There he completed two
features and an hour—long thesis
film. "Joe Bed Stuy Barbershop: We
Cut Heads,“ which won the Student
Academy Award from the Academy
of Motion Picurc Arts and Scicnccs,

Lee first gained attention in the
film community in 1986 when his
comedy. “She‘s Gotta Have It
received rave reviews and earned
more than $7 million while costing
the independent filmmaker only
$175 000 to make.

“There’s nothing in the
film (“School Daze”)
that isn’t true. Forty-

activities and Phi Beta

undergoes an extraordinary amount
of hazing in his attempts to pledge
Gamma Phi Gamma. His portayal
of the pledge activities has drawn
fire from fraternities.

"There's nothing in the film that
isn't true.“ said Lee. “Forty-three
people have died recently from
hazing activities and Phi Beta
Sigma has totally outlawed it. sol
mean it‘s no joke.“

Lee never joined a fraternity at
Morehouse and. while he thinks that
fraternities have great potential. he
thinks that their original meaning
has been corrupted.

“Guys just joined them for the
women and it was amazing the
change that came over women once
you joined one. Your stock went up
100 percent immediately once they
found out you were pledging." he

However. Lee also said that there
is a need for black fraternities on
