Roselle says budget a step backward for UK

Editorial Editor

UK faculty can expect no salary
increase and eventually the Univer-
sity might be forced to lay off fac-
ulty if Gov. Wallace Wilkinson‘s
budget is approved by the General
Assembly. UK President David
Roselle said yesterday.

Addressing a standing-room-only
crowd of about 1.800 in the Sin-
gletary Center for the Arts, Roselle
called Wilkinson's budget “tough. it
is tight and some would even call it
draconian in nature.“

Roselle had called the forum to
explain to faculty. students and staff
the ramifications of the proposed
state budget on UK.

Roselle told the audience. com—
posed mainly of faculty and staff
members. that "things (at UK) are
in fact going well and that we are
truly on our way to having a univer—
sity which can compete on a nation-

However. he said if Wilkinson‘s
budget is approved. the University's
momentum toward reaching its
goals will be stalled.

Wilkinson‘s budget proposes giv-
ing higher education a 0.5-percent
increase in funding for the 1989 fis~
cal year and a 5-percent raise the
next year.

UK would receive an additional
$900,000 from the state under Wilkin-
son‘s plan for fiscal year 1989. which
essentially amounts to no increase.
according to UK Vice President for
Administration Ed Carter. UK needs
about $19 million just to stay even.

If the governor‘s budget is passed.
UK faculty and staff would not re-

ceive the 5-percent raise Roselle had
hoped to give them next year.

In addition to providing no funds
for salary increases. Roselle said
Wilkinson’s budget also allows no
money for maintenance costs or sup-
port for any of the University‘s
planned programs.

Roselle said UK probably would
have to allow some current staff
openings to remain vacant until the
financial situation improves.

A study would have to be con-
ducted. Roselle said, to determine
which programs the University can
eliminate and still continue in its
day-to-day operations.

When Kentucky has faced difficult
economic situations in past years.
Roselle said. higher education was
able to survive because the state al—
lowed it minimal room to grow.

But Wilkinson's budget hardly al-
lows for any growth at all. he said.

However. Roselle pointed out that
not everything in Wilkinson‘s budget
was bad news for UK and higher ed-

The governor‘s budget called for
an addition and renovation of the
UK Business 8: Economics College
building and for a learning resource
center to be built for the Ashland
Community College.

Although UK would suffer sub
stantial setbacks under Wilkinson‘s
budget. Roselle said ultimately the
"big losers" are the people of Ken-

"The University of Kentucky is
really one of the shining lights in the
state."he said.

would be held back until at least
March 31. it would be released only
if he found that no cease-fire had
been achieved and the Sandinislas
weren‘t abiding by their promises
for democratic reform.

In his address, he changed the
terms in an attempt to win over wa-
vering lawmakers. He proposed that
both houses of Congress decide with-
in a 10—day period whether they
agreed with him or not on the neces-
sity for the military aid. Such a res-
olution is usually comidered non-
binding by the Congross, but the
president pledged to abide by it.

“If Congress adopts such a resolu-
tion within 10 days . .. then I will
honor this action and withhold deliv-
eries of ammunition in this pack-
age," Reagan said.

In the Democratic response writ-
ten before Reagan‘s speech, Rep.
Lee Hamilton, D-Ind.. said it was
time for the United States “to sup-
port the Central American peace
process, to put the Sandinistas to the
test, and to take risks for peace."

Hamilton, who gained national at-
tention as chairman of the House
Irancontra investigating committee

last year. acknowledged that the Ni-
caraguan government could renege
on its promises to restore civil liber-
ties. “But if they do, they will be re-
jecting a peace plan their neighbors
endorse," he said. ”Their bad faith
will be clear, and Americans will be
unified against them.“

Hamilton said Reagan‘s request
“is not enough to win the war. But
as the Central American presidents
have made clear, it is enough to sab—
otage peace."

Reagan’s speech was not carried
by three of the four major television
networks, who decided that Reagan
was likely to say little that was new.
Only the Cable News Network
broadcast the address.

The lack of network attention
aroused the ire of the White House
chief of staff. Howard H. Baker crit-
icized ABC, NBC and CBS, saying’
the decision interferes with the “tra-
ditional right" of presidents to com-
municate with the American people.

“The decision . . . represents an
attempt to substitute their judgment
for that of the president on what the
country should have the opportunity

to hear,“ Baker said in a written

in a symbolic move yesterday, the
Senate Foreign Relations Committee
voted 10—0 to send Reagan‘s request
to the full Senate with a negative
recommendation. The panel‘s Re-
publican members boycotted the
meeting as partisan and meaning-
less, since the aid package will go to
the Senate floor automatically if it
passes the House.

Not counted in the package is $20
million in Pentagon funds that would
ensure against the loss of any leased
planes used for supply drops to re—
bels inside Nicaraguan territory,
and an estimated $3 million worth of
electronic gear such as radar-jam-

If the package wins House appro-
val it will go to the Senate for a vote

Reagan kept up his push for the
package throughout yesterday by
meeting with some 20 House mem-
bers. attempting to sustain those
leaning in his favor and garner
votes from fence-sitters.

Sutton warns Cats

of serious

Staff Writer

Times they are a changin‘.

Nobody knows that more than
coach Eddie Sutton as he prepares
his Cats to face a team that for so
many years was one of the doormats
of the Southeastern Conference
—Ole Miss.

In the past. when you looked over
the UK schedule. you could mark a
‘W’ beside the Ole Miss game before
the season even started.

Since the first game was played
between the two schools in 1925.
Kentucky holds a commanding 70-6
series lead.

Adolph Rupp never lost to Ole
Miss in his 42-year reign as head
coach. And Joe B. Hall hardly ever
had any trouble with those Missis‘

Hall ended up a total of six points
short the three games the Cats
dropped in his 29 tries.

Sutton. however. insists things are
different now.

"Our fans just think. ‘Well. Missis-
sippi‘s coming to town. We ought to
beat Mississippi.‘ " Sutton said.
“Times have changed from those
days when the other institutions (in
the SEC) had assistant football
coaches coaching basketball."

Last year. the Rebels even beat
UK for the first time since 1982
when they upset the (‘ats 76-65 in
()xford. Miss.

And it took a doubleepump. under<
handed lob to the hoop by Rex Chap-
man at the buzzer to win last year's
contest at Rupp Arena. 64-63.

Sutton believes his team must
take the 8-9 Rebels seriously in
order to win the game.

“I really believe a major factor
will be convincing our team that.
‘Hey. Mississippi is capable of beat-
ing anyone in our league.‘ “ Sutton
said. "Ole Miss is the best .500 club
in college basketball. “

Sutton said the Rebel attack is led
by senior guard Roderick Barnes.
“one the best players in our
league;" senior forward Charles
Prater. "one of the best athletes in
our league;" and freshman guard
Tim Jumper. “probably one of the
best young players in the league."

The three players average 48.9 of
()le Miss‘ 65.5 points per game.
