irwan to go co-ed this fall

News Editor

Kirwan Tower will be a partially
coeducational residence hall begin-
ning this fall.

In an attempt to meet growing fe-
male requests for co-ed housing, UK
is going to create a coed unit in Kir—
wan Tower (which is currently an
all male hall), said Bob Clay, acting
director of residence life.

At least the first eight floors of
Kirwan Tower will be co-ed, leaving
all men in the rest of the building.

There could be more co-ed floors,
depending upon the number of appli—
cations for coed housing next fall,
Clay said.

The eight or more floors will alter-
nate as to their gender classifies
tion, Clay said.

only sophomores and above are
considered for coed housing.

Clay said that UK is making this
move because more women request-
ed campus housing than men last
year and UK expects that situation
to remain the same this year.

By the first day of classes last
fall. 3,898 men and 4,389 women
(8,827 total) had applied for 5,327
available spaces. After 2,231 appli-
cants canceled, 365 applicants re-
mained on the waiting list, said
Penny Cox, director of UK Housing.

Of those on the waiting list, 228

were female and 137 were males,
Cox said.

After the dust of applicant
cancellations and placements had
cleared “we had about 100 too many
male spaces and too too few female
spaces," Clay said.

So to remedy the situation, Clay
said that Residence Life and UK
Housing decided to take away about
100 male spaces and give them to fe-
males. The only question was where,
Clay said.

Originally the University had con-
sidered three tentative locations —
Holmes Hall. Haggin Hall, and Kir-
wan Tower. Haggin and Holmes
were ruled out as possibilities leav-
ing only Kirwan Tower, Clay said.

“Haggin has 32 outside doors and
from a safety aspect we decided
against that," Clay said.

Holmes, which would have been
made totally co-ed, was ruled out
because of the fact that quality
housing would have been taken
away from a lot of freshmen men
that “wouldn’t find another hall as
desirable," Clay said.

Kirwan was found to be the most
feasible because it ”gives us the
ability to meet 100 percent of our co~
ed demand," Clay said.

“Our big requests . . .

“What should happen is that the

they‘re chasing us," Davender said.
“The pressure is on them. We‘re

David Lee Roth’s latest LP, ‘Skyscraper,’ hits rock bottom

Staff Critic

David Lee Roth
Warner Bros. Records

I don’t know if this is an exact
quote, but right after David Lee
Roth decided he’d had enough of
Van Halen (a wise career move if
there ever was one). Eddie Van
Halen said that Roth was more of a





screamer than a singer and incapa~
ble of coming down off that egoma-
niacal cloud and shutting up.

Well ol‘ Ed has pretty much pro-
ven himself a prophet. because on
Skyscraper. another one of Diamond
Dave's stupid solo efforts, Roth
never lowers his voice from that
raspy cackle that we've all come to
know and hate. At its best, this
album is the most annoying piece of
trash since Falco last graced our
radio dials.

The music here is standard com~
puterized feedback neo-metal — not
good or bad or exciting — just there.
As for the lyrics, to say they‘re
inane or banal or just plain moronic
would be a compliment. They‘re
worse than that. When Roth spits

“I‘d wait for her parade/ While
she's out doin‘ Yankee Doodle/
Thought I had it made/ But the
gravy train was late as usual." one
has to wonder if . while making Skys-
craper, Roth had been sniffing air-
plane glue or something.

My personal favorite stupidity is
“Hot Dog And A Shake" in which
Dave quips, “I see ya shake and
shimmy/ Cross the burger shop
floor/ I never seen a woman m0ve
so slow/ I’m dyin‘/ French fryin‘/
By the seat of my pants . . Is this
guy a lyrical magician or what?

To give Roth a little credit, no.

criticize the governor's budget, and
they were to say that they could get

The Lexington Democrat, who
made similar charges last week,
said he had discussed the matter
wrth both Foster and Budget Direc-
tor Kevin Hable.

Moloney said Sunday “Jack ac-
knowledged that they had had that
meeting, and Kevin said: ‘Look, it‘s
our budget. We told these people
they work for the executive branch
and yes, they were to support the
budget.‘ "

Moloney said that often happens
at the beginning of an administra-
tion. but added, “What concerns me
so much is that Jack Foster, when
asked about that. denied it hap-
pened. and the governor‘s press sec-
retary denied it happened. and they
both know it happened.“

After Moloney made the charge
last week. Foster told The Courier.
Journal that "every governor ex-
pects loyalty. but we‘ve not told any-
one to lie or hide information from
the legislature."

Wilkinson‘s press secretary. Doug
Alexander, said during an interview
that he denied what he considered a
“blanket” charge by Moloney “that
cabinet secretaries had been told not
to criticize the budget. “

liable said during an interview,
”What I suspect Secretary Foster
said was that the budget being pre-
sented to the legislature was not the
requests of the agencies but was the
governor's executive-branch budget
and that the agency heads

should testify from that perspective
as officers of the executive branch.

“I think that’s a very close para-
phrase of what I said to Senator Mo-
loney," Hable said.

He said that if Moloney took that
as confirmation that agency heads
had been told to limit their crit-
icism, “then he misunderstood what
I said.“

“Several people from the exec-
utive branch have outlined . . . those
needs that they consider legitimate
which will not be met or fully satis-
fied with the limited about of money
we had available,” Hable said.

However, Moloney said Sunday. “I
was concerned with two cabinet sec-
retaries saying one thing to me and
then denying that they said it when
they were asked about it. ”

Moloney also says that two cab-
inet secretaries and Alexander kno-
wingly made incorrect statements to
reporters last week.

Moloney said Human Resources
Secretary Harry Cowherd told him
that Medicaid Commissioner Hughes
Walker “had been fired because the
governor‘s office had called and told
him (Cowherd) to fire him.

“Then when the press asked him
about the confirmation (of the
story), he said that wasn't true, and
he had not told me that.

“Now, that, I think, is very ama-
teurish on both Secretary Foster's
part and Secretary Cowherd’s part,
and I hope they stop that because all
it‘s doing is damaging the
relationship between the General
Assembly and the administration,“
Moloney said.

In the original Courier-Journal
story about Walker's departure,
Cowherd said through a spokesman
that Wilkinson had not sought the
resignation, but that they both had
someone better in mind for the job.

The spokesman, Brad Hughes,
said Sunday night that Cowherd
“doesn‘t think he told Moloney the
governor‘s office asked for the fir~
ing. but he's not certain."

Moloney said it would be helpful
for him and Wilkinson to discuss the
budget as he said he has done with
every other governor at this point in
the legislative session since he be-
came the budget committee‘ 5 chair-
man 10 years ago.

He said he hadn‘t had a conversa-
tion with Wilkinson since 1985, when
he declined to support him in last
year's race for governor.

EKU president facing complaints

Associated Press

RICHMOND, Ky. ~ Some faculty
members at Eastern Kentucky Uni-
versity are lodging complaints
against President H. Hanly Funder-
burk similar to those voiced before
he resigned from Auburn.

Those professors who are openly
critical of Funderburk say he is a
poor administrator who does not re-
late well to faculty members or
those outside a close circle of
trusted advisers.

They have also criticized how he
spends the university’s money and
the difference between faculty and
administrator‘s salaries. They also
say he punishes those who are crit-
ical of him.

Funderburk, an Alabama native,
was president of Auburn from 1980
to 1983, when he left the school amid
a storm of controversy.

He took the reins at Easern in
1985, just as the 5&year-old plant
physiologist was considering leaving
the education field.

But Funderburk has
