He is a cat who wants to see

“You know, I like football
and basketball about the

have to say that basketball is a

Basketball and football
games are only two of [)uer—

as well.

The lecture has been an annual event since

“Most of us come to this business out of .iii

than just serving as a government watchdog.

Despite entering the competition as the top-ranked

As preliminaries got underway Thursday after
noon. the l)an7,ers were clearly the crowd favorite.
L'nfortunately the judges. appointed by the

you don't need to be an expert to know that these

the great—great
grandson of
Sengbeh Pieh,
best known as Joseph
Cinque, who led the slave
ship revolt on which the
Steven Spielberg movie
Amismd was based.



skewered—Grandson of W Joseph Cinque



After the “Amistad” was captured in American waters off the New lingland
coast, Sengbeh Pieh won his freedom and the freedom of other slave muti-
neers in US. Supreme Court decision defined by John Quincy Adams.




As a powerful influence on the early abolitionist movement. the trial was moral
coming of age for America. Why is it then that many Americans had never

heard the story of the trial before the release of the movie? \\'hat are the rami-
fications when a country is denied its own history? 's


Samuel H. Pieh explores this issue in depth in his presentation. Acclaimed in
his own time for his tireless humanitarian work, he also speaks on the impor-
tance of forging an economic and cultural bond between Africa and Aiitcrica.

Students against re-run

Say second 5 GA election
will be worse than first

By Jed Leano

While the Student Government

etl a decision today to hold another
election, freshman communications
major Kent O’Brien sat in (Zom—
inon (irounds with a cu ) of coffee
in one hand, a copy ofl the Ken-
tucky Kernel in the other hand and
a confused look on his face.

Like many students, O'Brien
was surprised to read about SGA’S
second election.

“I didn't know they were even
going on," O'Brien said. “I heard
about them on the last day of vot—
ing. l never met any of the candi—
dates. l don't know anything
about what they do, and I don‘t
know what they stand for."

()‘Brien is not alone. There are
other students who say another
election is neither important nor

“No one cared the first time,
and no one will care the second
time,”Jameson said.

“SGA elections are never a big
deal, and regardless of what peo-
ple are accused of doing, it
wouldn‘t have made that big a dif-
ference in the outcome of the
election," he said. “The winners
still would've won anyway."

The frustration over havin
elections again runs deep witli
many students. Nlarketin fresh-
man Christian Adler said I ere are
bound to be rule violations in
large-scale elections, and there
probably will be more violations
in the next election as well.

“These violations make abso-
lutely no difference in the out-
come of the election," Adler said.
“But some people see the need to

tnake a big deal out of petty
offenses, and now I have to go out
and vote all over again."
