The role of the black journalist

Former vice chancellor to speak: William C.
Parker encourages change in black journalism

By Sterling Rouse


William (‘. Parker. respected
orator and former vice chancellor
of minority affairs at l'K. will
speak at UK on Sunday about the
role and responsibility of the
black journalist

Parker believes that tiiaiiy of

today‘s black journalists have lost


touch with their ability to create
change within their communities.

"it's not that they have forgot
ten [their rolel." he said. "It's just
that nobody taught it to them."

He said that. historically.
great black journalists were
people who used their position to
improve their environment. with»
out losing the objectivity that is
the hallmark ofjournalism.

But Parker was quick to
point otit that his message ex~
tends beyond the realms ot‘jour-
nalism and blackness. and en-
couraged all students to attend.

Born in 192:”), Parker escaped
poverty to earn a bachelor‘s and
master's degree from lllinois
State University. He also received
a doctorate in psychology frotii
(‘olumbia Pacific University. He
has done postgraduate work at
Case-Western Reserve. Princeton.
Rutgers as well as the l'niversity
ofllhana iii Accra.

Mattox credited the Lady Rebels' defense for preyenting her
team from doitig what they wanted to do.

“Mississippi came in with a game plan to take away the mid

to shoot from the outside."

l'K's perimeter players were hesitant to take many of the
shots the Ole Miss defense was allowing. but when they did shoot.
they were ineffective. making only two of to three-point attempts.

UK started the game hot. outscoring the Lady Rebels lit-l in

Ole Miss went on a 1872 run of their own. cultninating on a foul
shot by Lady Rebel junior guard Sherika Wright that put Ole Miss
up 32-15 with 8:25 left in the first half.

Poul trouble plagued the (tits throughout the first halfas Ole

Miss connected on Iii of 17 free throws versus just three attempts
at the line for ['K.

The UK coach again attributed the (‘ats‘ fouling and defen
siye problems to the way Ole Miss had affected the team mentally.

“We didn't move our feet." Mattox said. “'l‘onight they packed
that thing in and offensively when it wasn't clicking. we let it af-

The first half was capped by a half-court prayer by (lle Miss
senior guard Becky Myatt just before the buzzer. Myatt's shot
gave the Lady Rebels a 37-24 lead at the break.

[K was led by the play of freshman center SeSe Helm who
tallied gatne highs in scoring and rebounding with El [mints and
10 boards. respectively .

Helm recorded her first-ever career double-double before foul
ing out with 1:38 left,

Even though Helm had reached that individual milestone for
the first time, she was ultimately disaijiinted with the loss.

“it wasn‘t a ‘W.”' Helm said. "I don't really focus on (loit-
ble-doubles or triple-doubles. 1 focus on the fundamental
things to win."

The issue: Students attending UK

For the last two years, corporate communica-
tions junior .lon Rasmussen. 25. has attended school
full-time. But he always paid full price for his UK
sports tickets. his good grades didn't get him on the
dean's list and he never had the chance to get PK
health insurance.

Rasmussen‘s problems are familiar to anyone
who attends UK and LC(‘ with 12 or more hours com-
bined between the two. Though LCC is part of UK's
educational system and general education courses
are of equal merit at the two schools. one must be a
full-time student at one of the schools. not both. to
take advantage of some basic full-time benefits.

LCC transfer students.

“It comes up on their [com-
puter] system that you've tak-
en classes at LCC. but it won‘t
calculate your GPA." Ras-
ntttssen said. "They say LCC is
a separate entity. but i use the
same lD.“

Many frustrations like
these are being remedied, said
LCC president Jim Kerley.

“The problem before was
that we were on a different com-
puting system. so everything
was different." Kerley said.

Kerley said some of the dif-
ficulties faced by students who
attend both schools have been
fixed and ntore changes are on
the horizon.

“Now we‘re on the same
system... and we‘re working
through those bugs now." KerA
ley said. “UK‘s going to he go-

ing to a new administrative

be flowing right with that. i
think that's when we‘ll see

Improvements that have al-

VIP class registration and bill
pay for both schools. Kerley

He said there are frequent
meetings between the two ad-

Kerley also said he will

Recently I saw the Actors

I wasn‘t blown away.

and Steve Martin. you've seen

movie and aren't familiar with
the story. “Little Shop of Hor-
rors" is a musical black come

want at the cost of your soul.
The main character is a no-
body named Seymour who
works at a florist shop on Skid
Row. Seymour's luck changes
when he finds a plant that no
one has ever seen before. As the
plant grows and gets more inter-

to getting appropriate victims

The music in the play is ac-

tend to be a bit campy. the
songs are fun and they really

The acting was also fairly
good. Steve Routman does an
excellent job at playing the
goofy Seymour. He really
makes the audience believe he
is a sweet. innocent guy who
just got in over his head. Au-

drey as well and Michael James
Leslie does a good job as the
voice of Audrey II.

The play was good, it just
seemed to try too hard to be just

like the movie. The best part of

the play is where it breaks
away from the movie. It is not
so much a happy ending. like in

This makes the play worth

Kentucky Supreme
Court ruled Thursday.

The Justices said that
while the Kentucky
generally reserves all
matters relating to
lawyers and their

the General Assembly

book and turned it

Sen. Richard Russell,

Nov. 1, 1968, is signed
by then‘preSidential
candidate Nixon.

for your efforts on
behalf of my
