Vice presidential candidates to debate tonight

Staff Writer

Students will get a chance to see
how the SGA vice presidential candi-
dates stand on the issues tonight
when the four candidates square off
in two debates.

Sponsored by Omicron Delta
Kappa and the Kentucky Kernel, the
debates will take place in 230 Stu-
dent Center.

executive vice presidential candi<
dates Karl Crase and Brad Dixon
will begin at 7, followed by senior
vice presidential candidates Susan
Bridges and Keith Clary at about
8 1:3


Dixon, a member of Kenny Aring-
ton‘s ticket, said he feels he is at a
sort of “disadvantage“ going into to-
night‘s debate because he is not that
familiar with his opponent. Crase.

Since Crase has never been in stu-
dent government. “I don‘t know
much about him.“ Dixon said. “and

Vice presidential candidates
looking to dodge split ticket

Assistant News Editor

For the next two weeks. vice pres-
idential candidate Keith Clary says
that he and his running mates.
Kenny Arington and Brad Dixon.
will have to work as one to be elect-
ed as one.

But with Clary facing opposition
from SGA Senator at Large Susan
Bridges for the senior vice presi-
dential slot. some supporters of
presidential hopeful Kenny Arington
are concerned about a split ticket
being elected.

“In the next two weeks we will all
have to be one said Clary. the
candidate for senior vice president
in next week‘s Student Government
Association elections. "The election
won‘t be the same if one of us

As a freshman. Bridges collected
661 votes in her first SGA campaign
while trying out for the Lady Kat
cheerleaders the same week. Clary
finished ninthwithStHvotes.

"I'm in the toughest race between
the three of us. but that's where the
fun is and that‘s what makes me
work harder." Clary said.

Despite wanting to withdraw from
the race about two weeks before the
Arington ticket announced its candi<
dacy. Clary said he is ready to meet
the challenge

”Withdrawing; had nothing to do
with losing to Susan Bridges.“ said
the 20-yearold political science and
fina nce sophomore from Lexington.

”It's a challenge I knew I was
going to have to face anyway I was

concerned before «about losing). but
not now." he said.

Clary said his hesitation to enter
the race resulted from “internal
conflict" in the Arington camp that
the presidential candidate extin-
guished “in a matter of minutes."
Both Clary and Arington declined to
say what the conflict was.

With Arington‘s ticket slowly gain-
ing momentum. Dixon. the candi-
date for executive vice president,
said that the campaign‘s coordina-
tors are growing less worried about
a split ticket.

“Before spring break we weren‘t
starting at the same momentum
that Cyndi was, but Kenny was sick
then. We‘re not worried rabout a
split ticket I now." Dixon said.

KENTUCKY KERNEL, Wednesday. April 1,




Staff Writer

Gloria Naylor, a central figure at
the Women Writers Conference, is
offended by society's assumption
that the creative efforts of anyone
who is colored and/or female must
contain an implicit message of

“There are no conscious issues in
my work," Naylor said in a recent
phone interview. “I write predomi-
nantly about black women because I
am one — every writer must take
subject matter from their own expe-
rience — but what I write is first,
foremost and inalienably a work of

Her first novel, The Women of
Brewster Place, which won the 1983
American Writers Award, “grew out
of a desire to respond to a trend that
I noticed in the black and white crit-
ical establishment . . . a tendency to
assume that a black writer's work
should be ‘definitive‘ of black cul-
ture," she said in an interview with
The New York Times.

In addition to the somewhat ste
reotyped image Naylor claims this
imposes on a colored writer, “this
type of critical stance denies the
vast complexity of black existence,
even if we limit that complexity
solely to America."

Noticing that “one composite pic-
ture" could not justify this complex—
ity, “I tried to solve the problem by
creating a microcosm on a dead-end
street and devoting each chapter to
a different woman's life,“ Naylor
said in The Washington Post.


Gloria N aylor battles stereotyped imgae of minority authors

In response to her attempt, Li-
brary Journal compared Naylor's
“evocative style" and “rich charac-
terizations“ to the writing of Alice
Walker while The Washington Post
wrote: “Naylor's potency wells up
from her language. With prose as
rich as poetry, a passage will sud»
denly take off and sing like a spiritu-

"I am very concerned with the en-
vironment and its conflict with the
human character," Naylor said.
“But in my second book lLinden
Hills), I tried to tone down my de-
scriptive style in portraying this,
and to avoid melodrama, which I
love to employ.“

Since the book's subject revolves
around the existence of mysterious
and the supernatural phenomena in
everyday life, Naylor sees her tech-
nique of describing the bizarre in
relatively mundane terms as an ex-
tremely effective one.

“Linden Hills really concerns the
conflict between what is real and
what is apparition," Naylor said. “It
sets out to ask ‘what constitutes
reality? What do we rbelieve is real-
ity and therefore) value in Ameri-
ca'?‘ "

”It bothers me that if a woman
appeared to work magic, she was
condemned as a witch; if a man ap-
pears to do the same thing nowa—
days, he is honored as a scientist.“
she said.

Naylor is currently working on the
fourth book of her quartet. which
will be released under the title
Mama Day. She frequently takes
her inspiration for a subject from

images that persistently crop up in
her mind: “If these images occur,
they will somehow be incorporated
in my book," she said.

Naylor tends to base her plots
around one central character — “a
standard-bearer" and his or
(more usually) her interaction with
other characters. Her books, she ex-
plained, are created by these char—
acters coming to life and creating
their own thoughts and actions.

“I pray that my characters will
never fail to do this," said Naylor,
who intends to continue her novel-
writing career, with some diversions
into the fields of the short story and

Naylor claims she is a born writer
who discovered her gift at an early
age by keeping a diary to express
her thoughts in lieu of conversation,
which she was too shy to hold at
length. ”I gradually discovered how
words associated with ideas, and my
writing ability flourished," she said.

Creative writing workshops at
Yale honed her style and, with their
clme esprit de corps, boosted the
“internal faith I have in my own ex-
cellence, Now I value criticism,“
she said. “I find even negative crit-
icism useful."

In addition to novel writing, Nay-
lor is also the “Hers" columnist for
The New York Times and a contrib-
uting writer to such magazines as
The Southern Review, Essence, Ms.
and People. She is a member of the
American Writers Association and a
visiting lecturer at Princeton Uni-

at the ninth annual Women Writers
Conference, which opens today and

Clarke launched his solo career in

he is heavier on jazz and lighter on
rock than other fusion artists.

His current Epic Records album,

that were nominated for Grammy

awards: “()verjoyed." for best pop
instrumental performance, and

Critics and fans call him a super-

The fourday event brings together outstanding women

Although the largest portion of the attendance is from
Kentuckians. people from as many as 18 states have at»

Therein lies its importance

Steinem‘s speech. “Women Writers: Making the World
Whole, “ will open and set the tone for the conference.

But along with this national focus is a local function.
The conference is very important in the development of
women writers from the state of Kentucky.

Kentucky women writers have annually been featured
