UK loses Teeter

to Texas J-school

Assistant Managing Editor

Thirteen months ago, Dr. Dwight
Teeter faced the gargantuan task of
rebuilding the UK school of jour-
nalism. Now he‘s heading for one of
the most mveted jobs in the country.

Teeter was recently named
chairman of the journalism
department at the University of
Texas in Austin. UT boasts 1,100
journalism majors, the largest
number in the nation, and the school
of communications is housed in a
three-building, $12 million complex.

But last January, things weren’t
looking so bright for Teeter.

UK‘s journalism school hadlost its
accreditaton and was under fire
from administrators as well as local
media. Why had the major state
school lost its accreditation? There
were plenty of quick answers, but
the real sdutions were to be some
time in arriving.

At that time. UK‘s departments of
journalism and communications
were changed to schools when the
College of Arts and Sciences was
revamped. Teeter was named acting
director of the J -schooland faced the
task of improving conditions so that
the accrediting team would like
what it saw upon its retum.

Teeter is confident about UK

The jury is still outon that matter;
the wad on accreditation won’t
come until later this semester. But
Teeter is confident, which is why he
has no second thoughts about

“I‘m optimistic," he said. “Our
faculty has gone from eight to 12
people and we’ve gotten all that new
equipment.” The University
recently invested more than $50,000
in an electronic video display ter-
minal editing system for the J-

“0ur job placements are going a
lot better than they were. When I

took over, I was getting calls every
two a- three weeks from somebody
asking for a reporter. Now we're
getting two or three per .wee .”

Teeter said his main concern when
he started was “to strengthen the
faculty and get us in a position to be
reaccredited. it's easy to make
thirgs happen when they give you
funds and people to work with."

But there were some anxious
moments in the early going. “There
was no way of knowing if the ad—
ministration would bounce for an
electronic editing system. There
was no way of knowing if we could
get the faculty up to 12 people,"
Teeter said

But it all happened, and now
Teeter is heading south.

35 applicants beaten out

He got a letter last November
inviting him to apply for the Texas
job. “I decided ‘Why not?‘ ” he said.
“i wentdown there in December and
took a look. i liked the place and i
liked the people."

Dr. Robert Jeffrey, acting
director of the UT school of jour-
nalisrn, said a committee screened
35 applicants and narrowed the
choices to five. Those five were
interviewed and the field was then
cut to two.

UT’s president and vice-president
for academic affairs then in-
terviewed them—and Teeter, who
was recanmended by Jeffrey, came
out the winner.

“He was chosen for a variety of
reasons," Jeffrey said. “He has a
strong academic backgrourxl with
some scholarly work in journalism

“He has a wide reputation with
journalists. both academic and
professimal. We wanted someone
with a national reputation, ad-
ministra tive experience and respect

Worldly education

Patterson School’s grads are intemationally oriented

Kernel Staff writer

Karen Curry is currently a suc-
cessful market management trainee
for an international corporation, the
John Deere industrial Equipment
Canpany in Moline, Illinois.

Curry, in her mid-twenties, is the
first woman to work in the
management portion of the com-
pany, and her training involves
learning the technical and
marketing aspects of construction
and foresty equipment.

ltallstarted a few years ago when
she received her bachelor’s degreee
in political anthropology and
decided to pursue a career in in-
ternational business. The only
problan was that she couldn’t
decide how to get the education she

international studies programs
offered by the nation’s universities,
so i spent one year researching
various program and writing the
schools for. information," Curry

Patterson School was choice

After much careful consideration,
Curry selected the University of
Kentucky‘s Patterson School of
Diplomacy and International

She is among several Patterson
School graduates who train with
domestic branches of their em-
ployers in order to gain the
necessary experience for jobs

Many now hold responsible
postitions such as director of Latin
American operations for the First
National Bank of Memphis, senior
international business research
economist for the Norfolk and
Western Railway, and international
grain trading specialist for Cook
industries, Inc.

Patterson School alumni work all
over the world. They hold business
or government positions in Belgium,
France, Thailand, Nigeria, Brazil,
Turkey, and the Soviet Union.

Why Curry and other students
have chisen to attend UK’s Pat-
terson School over some of the

nation's more prestigious univer-
sities becomes clear when one takes
a look at its comprehensive
education program.

International aspect emphasized

The primary purpose of the school
is to prepare students for in-
ternationally oriented careers.
School officals stress that the
curriculum is aimed at providing
professional training for these
careers and is not merely an ex-
tension of an undergraduate liberal
arts education.

The word “Diplomacy" in the
name actually refers to different
public career possibilites in many
governmental agencies which have
international operations, said Dr.
Vincent Davis, director of the

merce“ refers to career options in

Davis said most Patterson School
students are more interested in the

business and banking, and so the
school‘s programs are more
strongly oriented in this direction.

The school offers an in-
terdisciplinary M.A. degree. It also
serves in an advisory capacity with
respect to the Ph.D. programs in
intemational studies in four related
departments—business ad-
ministratim, economics, history,
and political science.

Programs are tailor-made

“The typical M. A. candidate will
spend three semesters on campus,‘
Davis said. ‘The degree program
can be tailored to meet the career
needs of any particular student. We
usually sit down with each in-
dividual and put together a unique
program that will prepare him for
what he thinks he wants to do."

Most Patterson School students
think the flexibility of the academic
program is one at the school‘s
biggest advantages.

“With this kind of flexibility, you
can design and direct your own

A two-week wildcat coal strike which idled up

deserve attention

When President Carter was still candidate
Carter. one of his many campaign promises was
to initiate a closer working relationship with
neighboring nations.

Back-to-back visits to Washington by the
Mexican and Canadian leaders indicate that he
is pursuing that pledge. If Carter establishes a
relationship that invites friendly discussion of
mutual interests. it will be a refreshing shift in
foreign policy priorities.

The conflicts in Southeast Asia. the Mideast
and increased emphasis on detente with the
Russians tended to overshadow relations with
neighboring countries in recent years. And past
administrations spent too much diplomatic
energy on dealings with governments whose
respect for human rights is suspect; Iran, South
Korea and Rhodesia. for example.

President Lopez Portillo and Carter met last
week as two recently elected presidents
discussing mutual concerns. Carter‘s support
and expression of confidence in the Portillo
govemment will help quiet protests from an
organized group of conservative Mexican in-
dustrialists that are plaguing the Portillo ad-

Portillo agreed to help Carter in negotiations
over the Panama Canal and in setting the
groundwork for normalization of U.S.-Cuban
relations. Portillo and Carter also discussed
economic concerns and set up channels for
regular communication which could ease
recurring problems like the treatment of
American prisoners in Mexican jails.

Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau
comes in this week for talks of a more sensitive
and immediate danger. While the two can
discuss general topics like defense and energy,
they will also confront the delicate issue of
proposed Quebec secession.

Trudeau needs Carter’s support, yet he risks
further alienating French-speaking Quebec
separatists who have in the past accused the
Trudeau government of being guided by U.S.

The U.S. and Canada share the same
language. democratic traditons and a history of
cooperation that should allow for productive

UK needs center
for lost and found

Although the fact that there is no centralized
lost and found receiving station on campus
doesn't rank as one of the University’s major
problems. it is one that proves troublesome and
could be easily solved.

Several campus offices serve as a holding
station for lost items, as outlined in an article
yesterday (“Campus lost and found can be hard
to find”). These include the University police
station, three Student Center offices and in the
M]. King Library.

Theoretically. a person who sought a lost item
at all of these places would eventually recover it.
But this isn't necessary. A central lost and found
station could easily be established, perhaps in
the Student Center. and we hereby offer our
services to publicize the location.

Since Physical Plant Division employes
probably find most of the lost items, Director
Jim Wessells or Vice President for Business
Affairs Jack C. Blanton could locate and an-
nounce a centralized lost and found spot.

We urge them to do so.

will be reinforced.

Fellows. your sarcastic rhetoric
was amusing. but reckless disregard
for facts cannot go unchallenged.
First of all. you alluded to the fact
that U of L plays in a weak
conference by citing such members
as Tulane. St. Louis and Georgia

()n that basis. one could say the
Southeastern Conference is a weak
sister with members like Ole Miss
and Vanderbilt. However. I‘m sure
you inadverently forgot to mention
Cincinnati (an AP Top20 regular)
and Memphis State.

You also indicated very tactfully
your doubts about the non-confer-
ence teams that U of L plays by
citing their three weakest opponents
to date. This season U of L has
played Syracuse. Rutgers. Mar-
quette. Providence and Nevada Las
Vegas as well as many other
formidable teams.

Anyone who knows a basketball is
round can tell you that those teams
are not weak sisters!

In the 1975 NCAA championship
semifinals. U of L lost to UCLA by
one point in overtime, in a classic
thriller that sportswriters and
announcers still talk about. In the
diampionship game. the Wildcats
were handily defeated by UCLA.

Finally. UL has sold out Freedom
Hall two times this season. Those
sellouts were in the games against
Cincinnati and Providence.

To be sure. I‘m a Wildcat fan. I‘m
not so narrowminded that I can‘t see

rivalry that would make other

In response to the commentary by

as fresh. new start. and rebuild. yet
he offers no solution to the faltering
of our party except to quickly attack
the conservatives among us.

Right now. only 18 per cent of the

consider themselves Republicans.
And of the 54 per cent who listed
themselves as “conservative." only
one third were Republican.

If the Republican Party realligned
itself with the right-oriented major-

Lady Kats

Maybe there weren't many people
at the Lady Kats‘ game in Rupp
Arena on Feb. 14, but there also
weren‘t “sounds of silence" as
reported in an article on Feb. 15.

Almost all of the fans who were
there screamed. yelled, and cheered
on the Lady Kats. We didn't just sit
there like morons and watch the ball
bounce—we got interested in the
game and supported our team.

if more people would get out and
goto girl‘s games. maybe rumors of

Set boundaries

Paris Pike is logical limit


The state official who believes that
“the atmosphere of the Bluegrass
would be better revealed if vision
were not confined by a tunnel of
trees“ not only has no understanding
or feeling of that atmosphere, but
also possesses a distinctively re-
stricted vision.

[am not immune to the dangers of
commuting via Paris Pike. The
safety of commuters is a valid
consideration, but this is not the only


. , cqmmentary


issue at hand. What will happen if
every group of non-residents that
wants a better road to Lexington
gets it? Who determines the limits of
anv given citv?

If someone could find me an
unspoiled but heavily traveled art-
ery between two populated areas
that, unless preserved, will not
eventually become a conglome
ration of endless gas stations, shops,
subdivisions. malls. and of course,
traffic lights. I would find little
consolation in that rare impediment
to the flow of “progress."

In its stone walls, fences. and
tunnels of trees, Lexington posses-
ses a unique but tenuous insurance
against the unavoidable stresses of
endless expansion. If officials are
willing to destroy the walls and trees"
of Paris Pike. then they are undoubt-

edly willing to eventually widen all
the spokes coming into Lexington.

Once the wheel starts slowly
rolling. those who wield the power
may benefit in a much bigger way
than the happy commuters, and the
trend toward expansion will be
impossible to stop. To be sure.
someone will promise to draw new
limits of city growth, but compared
to the strength and endurance of
Paris Pike‘s borders. promised
boundaries drawn on paper will
have the strength of a spider‘s web
in front of a bulldozer.

Lexington residents should not

. feel obiigated to SUCCUmb to outside

pressures if what they already have
is more valuable than that which is
to destroy and replace it.

If officials truly want to be
visionary, let them fight to preserve
what Lexington has to offer pre-
sently. At its current size, anchored
in the heart of this extremely
beautiful and productive land. it is
far more unique than any of our
neighboring metropolitan sprawls.

Perhaps the most tragic question
is whether Lexington residents even
possess the power to influence the
Paris Pike decision. and thus the
future characterisitcs of their own
city and its surroundings. Under-
standably, many have given up and
resigned themselves to the relent-
less push of progress and politics.

Because the issue is so much more
complex than the widening of one

road and will effect so many people
for generations to come. a popular
vote is the only way to settle the
question fairly. I am sure Lexington-
ians will be visionary in their
approach to the problem.

Apparently many people who have
never experienced the slow but
relentless crush of a city into their
country do not realize the incredible
difficulty of trying to even slow the
trend, much less stop it. Nor do they
realize the long term effects on city
dwellers as well as suburbanites.

If Paris Pike is widened there will
be short-range benefits to commu-
ters and some officials. but event-
ually enumerable cross roads, traf-
fic lights and stop signs will appear,
as predictably as Spring itself. It
will require an equal or greater
amount of time to travel through the
bulging out-skirts of Lexington to its
polluted interior. Again there will be
a demand for more widening. if
there is any space left in which to do

By the time enough people realize
that the transportation problem will
never be permanently solved. the
charm and essence of the heart of
the Bluegrass will no longer exist. If
this is what the majority of Lexing-
tonians want, then and only then
may those whose “vision" is blind to
the future outcome reign supreme,
and let the death ceremony begin.

you are an unmitigated liar. For that
reason I do not feel sorry for you in




your attempt to slander mayoral
candidate Nick Martin.

Your letter could only have had an
effect on those who have not taken
the time to understand the positions
of Mr. Martin or the other candi-
dates. For these people I feel sorry.
Sorry that they would believe you
irstead of finding out for them-
selves. Sorry that they look no
further than media articles.

Voters must know for themselves
who is best for the job. Voters must
always question what is being said
by whom and why. The sad thing is
you really said nothing that per-
tained to the issues at hand for this
office. .

All anyone really has to do is call
and talk to one of Nick’s campaign
workers or Mr. Martin himself.
Then try the others. Now for the

always been involved in this field.
Yes. he was a good DJ.

Was Nick Martin a good news-
man? Well, the “professional broads

Besides he was conscious enough to
realize that the job as a conflict of
interest and quiet before his cam-

By I). l.;\lll)l-IRI)AI.E
° I suppose the fact that Mr. Ron
Mitchell was once a member of the
Kernel staff accounts in some way
for the appearance of his objective,
mature and fair—minded statement
in Wednesday's Kernel concerning
Mr. Nick Martin. I was pleased to




see that Mr. Mitchell‘s writing
remains every bit as brilliant as it

I thank Mr. Mitchell for his
working-man‘s definition of the
word “dork.“ but I would like to
suggest that it be posted in a more
fitting background. A bus station.

I will admit that as a definition by
example. his explanation of the word

“bias" was outstanding. As to just
how this pertains to Mr. Martin’s
qualifications I suppose l'll always
wonder. but I realize it is not the
place of mere mortals such as
myself to question the brilliant.

In all fairness. it should be noted

' that Nick Martin is. in fact, a

candidate for public office. and
probably acquainted with state and
federal laws concerning libel. As a
iuman being, he certainly deserves
better treatment than that accorded
lim by Mr. Mitchell. .

And as a candidate. he should, by
rights, be judged on the basis of
what he says and does, rather than
the eloquent mouthings of a once-
employed journalist.

’Far removed’ from teaching goals ?

Kernel Reporter

“The results of most
evaluations of teaching are
far removed from the
phenomenon of teaching it-
self,” acca‘ding to Dr. Robert
J. Mengs, the first guest
lecturer of the Danforth
Foundation‘s "Focus on
Teaching” program at UK.

Menges, who is program
director at the Center for the
Teaching Professions at
Northwestern University,
related some of his views on
teacher evaluation research
yesterday to about l25
faculty, staff and students at
the Student Center Theater.

Menges said information
from both students’ and in-
structors’ viewpa'nts should
be used as a basis for tenure
decisions. He also said
evaluations should deal with
how well the instuctor
develops the course ac
cording to its goals as well as
what the students learn.

Also included in a good
evaluation should be some
indication of how student
attitudes about the subject
matter have changed after
taking the course, Menges

“Too many times these two
factors, (attitudes and what
students have learned) are
not separated in the student
evaluations, and the results
are not as mable as if they
were separate." Menges said.

Do personalities matter?

Menges used a question-
and—a nswer session following
his talk to discuss a
questionnaire about student

. . . . ,evaluations thathe had asked
, , the audience totfill out.

The questionnaire results
reveled that most of the
audience felt a teacher’s
personality influences
student opinions as much as
what the students actually
learned, but Menges said that
his research at Northwestern
indicated no correlation
between the two factors in
student evaluations.

“Most of the problem stems
from wrong or ambiguous
questiots being asked on the

evaluation form, which

allows student confusion
about just what is being
asked,” Menges said later.

Other topics coming up
Other topics will be

discussed in the Focus on
Teaching program during the

coming weeks, according to
Michael Nichols, associate
director of UK’s department
of lemming resources.

The program continues
today with “Library Day,"
which Nichols said will be
primarily to acquaint faculty
with library resources
through the library’s in-
structional services.

Focrs in Teaching will
feature two other visiting
lecturers next week.

Tire Danforth Foundation of
St. Louis finances the
program, which is being co-
sponsored here by the lear-
ning resources department
and the dfice of the Dean of
Undergraduate Studies.

Nichols stressed that all the
programs are open to all
students, staff and faculty.
