Jones signs Scorsone’s trustee reform into law

Associate Editor

FRANKFORT, Ky. —— Gov.
Brereton Jones signed the uustee re-
form bill yesterday that he champi-
oned in his campaign and tltat Rep.
Ernesto Scorsone (D-Lexiitgton) fa-
tltered tltrough three sessions of the
General Assembly.

Jones called the law “along coop-
erative effort" of the legislature and
the executive branch.

“I‘m just real pleased after six

years we‘ve finally got something
in place that I think is real meaning-
ful for higher education.” said Scor-
sone. who attended the signing.

The law purges everyone from
the current governing boards at the
eight state universities and the state
Council on Higher Education.

Current board members automati-
cally are nominated under the new
process required by the law. That
new process sets up a seven-
member nominating committee.
which will submit three names to

the goventor for every board posi-
tion available.

The governor then appoints a
board member from that pool.

The nominating committee must
be confirmed by the legislature.
Jones said he would submit a list of
candidates for the committee to the
General Assembly during the week
of March 2.

The law also prohibits goventors
from appointing themselves or any
member of their families. Former
(iov. Wallace Wilkinson appointed

hintself to the UK Board of Trus-
tees bel‘ore he left office in Decem—

Tlte law does not purge the
boards until Jurte 30. Jones could
appoint trustees and regents under
the old method until then —— includ-
irtg tltree seats on the UK board.

However. Jones said once the
nominating committee is confirmed
by the (ieneral Assembly, lte will
begin using the process.

“As soon as'we cart get the new
process in place. I would begin to

Some 27 years after his assassina-

Malcolm X still persist. according
to a speaker at the Martin Luther
King (Tultural Center.

()mar l‘arouq. a noted Malcolm X
collector arid archivist from Terre
llaute. lnd.. last night said a major
misconception about Malcolm X is
that he promoted violence. Farouq
insisted that Malcolm X taught vir»
lence only in self-defense.

“Did Malcolm X preach vio
lence?" Farouq asked. “The answer
is unequivocally no.

“"th truth of the matter is. the
only violence Malcolm X was ever
involved in was the violence of his
owrt assassination."

Another myth propagated about
Malcolm X. Farouq said. is he hated
white people. l’arouq argued that
Malcolm did not hate white people.

Your computer may be sick
and you may not even know it —
until next month.

March 6 is the date a fast-
spreading computer virus is set
to attack the machines of unsus-
pecting personal computer own-
ers worldwide. erasing the ma-
chines‘ memories. This date also
is the birthday of Renaissance
artist Michelangelo. after whom
the virus is named.

UK Computing Center offi-
cials are moving to ensure that
this piece of artwork that never
gets finished. at least at UK.

The center is offering software
to scan eutd eliminate the virus
from infected computers.

The electronic bug has already
found its way into many of UK‘s
iBM-compatible computers. said
Jack Coffman. security and con-
tingency planning officer at the
UK Computing Center. He has
had about 30 reports from corn-
puter operators who have found
the virus.

The bug has been found in
[BM-compatible software and
hardware but apparendy does not
affect Macintosh computer sys-
tems. (‘oifman said. The virus
cannot infect UK‘s mainframe
computer or the Prime system.


Virus could infect
computer systems

he said.

if the virus is allowed to exist
in a computer‘s memory until
March 6. it can have devastating
effects. The computer's memo-
ry on its hard—drive software
would be erased and. unless
backed up. the int‘onnation will
be lost forever. C offmtur said.

Officials at the UK Comput-
ing Center are warning not only
UK staff and faculty but also
students who own personal
computers. that their machines
may be infected with the swift-
rnoving virus.

The bug is spread in a num-
ber of ways including using oth-
er peoples‘ software. using your
own software in someone else‘s
computer and then using it in
yours or through a computer
bulletin board.

The Michelangelo virus also
has been found in some comput—
er hardware and software prod-
ucts shipped from manufactur-
ers to computer retailers.

The anti-viral software is
available at the UK Micro irr-
structional Lab in 107 McVey

The UK College of Engineering
is observing National Engineers

“We hope to promote engineering
in communities and to make junior

UK baseball coach Keith Madi-
son previewed last weekend's Sa-
vannah Shootout. the opening event
of the 1992 baseball season, by pre-
senting the media with a very pow-
erful statistic.

“This is going to be a very differ-
ent team than we had last year,"
Madison said. “One thing that we
are very excited is we won 41
games last year. which was a school
record and we have 37 wins back
on the mound. So we‘ve got the
bulk of our pitching back."

UK returns its entire starting rota-
tion — juniors Rodney Henderson
(5—3. 6.67 ERA). Scott Smith (8-4.
3.46) and Mark Thompson (4-5.
4.23) —- to a tezun that went 41-20
in 1991.

The trio lived up to its billing.

Smith and Thompson picked up
victories last weekend, zutd Hender-
son put together a solid first outing
as the Bat (‘ats won two of three.

“()ur starting pitching was out-
struiding." Madison said. “Our three
starters combined gave up only two
canted runs over 18 innings.“

time. We‘re moving up a little each
time. letting them get stronger and

Although Madison admitted he
knows little about Georgia State. he
said he thinks Western Kentucky

the host team.

"With us playing on their field. 1
would say that they would be a very
