DR. OTIS A. SINGLETARY
President, University of Kentucky
The University of Kentucky has become one of the major institutions of higher learning in the United States under the leadership of Dr. Otis Singletary, the eighth president of the University.
Dr. Singletary was named president
Athletics Department
CLIFFORD O. HAGAN Director
Expansion of the football training room and addition of a beautiful player's lounge at Shively Sports Center, new carpeting in the stadium football offices, a new basketball office complex in Memorial Coliseum, re-arrangement of the baseball fences and a new surface for the running track are just a few of the recent improvements that signify the continuing progress of UK athletics since Cliff 1 lagan joined the Wildcat Staff seven years ago.
Recognized nationally as a progressive, business-oriented and promotion-minded administrator, Hagan has seen and overseen vast improvements in all phases of an ever-expanding operation that has encompassed 16 sports since the men's and
of the University in August, 1969. He had previously served as executive vice-chancellor for academic affairs in the University of Texas System and director of the Job Corps program for the Office of Economic Opportunity.
Dr. Singletary, a native of Gulfport, Miss., holds degrees from Millsaps College and Louisiana State University.
As president of the principal institu-
women's programs were merged in July of last year.
The merger, under Hagan's direction, has been orderly, with office space remodeled and in some cases created to make room for the women's coaching and administrative staff.
The indoctrination of Hagan into the UK   athletics   administrative structure
tion of higher learning in the Commonwealth, Dr. Singletary is greatly concerned with the University's role as a land-grant institution, a "people's university" accessible to all who can profit from education.
In the nine years he has been president, the University has grown to where there are now more than 22,000 students on the Lexington campus and more than 17,000 students in UK's 13 community colleges, and the University has become one of the major research institutions in the country.
Recognition of his service to the University was evidenced by the UK Alumni Association, which presented to Dr. Singletary its Alumni Service Awardan honor rarely bestowed upon a non-alumnus of the University.
Dr. Singletary is the author of two books and several monographs.
A Navy veteran of World War II and the Korean Conflict, he is a commander in the U. S. Naval Reserve. He and Mrs. Singletary, the former Gloria Walton, have three children: Bonnie, Scot and Kendall.
The Singletarys live at Maxwell Place, traditional home of UK presidents.
came in 1972, when he was named assistant to Harry C. Lancaster and given the task of implementing the Blue & White Fund for 57,600-seat Commonwealth Stadium and later for Rupp Arena. The fruits of his labors in this area have provided the additional financial support that has elevated the UK athletics program into a first class operation.
Hagan was named Athletics Director in July 1975 following Lancaster's retirement.
Hagan also has been an advocate of a strong scholar-athlete program, feeling "a genuine commitment to provide all the academic support and encouragement we can to help our athletes leave our campus with a college education and a degree."
On the personal side, Hagan received one of his highest individual honors last May when he became the first University of Kentucky basketball player to be installed in the Naismith Memorial National Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass.
He is married to the former Martha Milton of Owensboro. They have four children: Lisa, Laurie, Amy, and Kip. FRANK HAM
Assistant Director of Athletics
FRANK HAM became Assistant Director of Athletics in July 1975 soon after Cliff Hagan succeeded Harry C. Lancaster as Director of Athletics.
A native of Scranton, Pa., Ham came to the University in 1969 as administrative Assistant to footpall coach John Ray, and was reassigned to the Athletic Director's staff in 1972 when Ray resigned.
Ham graduated from high school at Niles, Michigan, and completed his undergraduate work at Indiana University and coached high school football and track at John Adams High in South Bend in 1944-46 and then returned to Olivet as athletic director and head football and basketball coach.
In 1951, he became assistant to the president at Olivet, with responsibilities in public and alumni relations. He was in private business from 1954 until 1968.

SUE FEAMSTER Assistant Director of Athletics
SUE FEAMSTER joined the athletics association July 1, 1978, with the merger of the men's and women's programs. Feamster had been the director of women's athletics prior to her appointment as assistant director of athletics.
A native of Frankfort, she came to the University as a graduate student in 1970, was named assistant director of campus
recreation in 1972 and director of women's athletics in 1974.
Feamster graduated from Franklin County High School where she was an outstanding tennisi player and athlete. While in college she earned letters in tennis, field hockey, basketball and track from Indiana University and Kentucky State University, where she earned her B.S. degree and graduated with honors.
LARRY IVY Assistant Director of Athletics for Finance
Adding a new dimension to UK athletics was the appointment three years ago of LARRY IVY as Assistant Director of Athletics for Finance.
Ivy, who came to the University as Director of Plousing in 1969, is involved primarily with the administration and management of financial aspects, and develops and initiates policies for accounting procedures and related business management activities of the department.

True or False

1. Television cameramen get to watch the University of Kentucky Wildcat Basketball games from the best positions in Rupp Arena.._,_
2. It's harder to run camera for basketball games than it is for baseball games because game action is faster.-
3. Cameramen don't have to know too much about the sport for which they are running camera because they are only following orders from the program's director. _

watch it on a delayed broadcast ... or if I'm not running camera."
2. FALSE.
Surprised? Most people think that it must be harder to operate a television camera for a basketball game than a baseball game because basketball is a much faster-paced game. But it's just the opposite. Basketball is one of the easiest sports to operate camera for, while baseball is probably one of the most difficult. In basketball the play is limited to a confined area, and while game action is fast paced and constant, there is little game strategy and action is generally centered around the basketball. Baseball involves a great deal of game strategy and game action is never centered solely around the pitcher and the baseball, i.e. stealing bases, fielding, etc.
3. FALSE.
While it is true that cameramen are following directions from the show's director, the cameramen are the "eyes" of the director. During the game, the director is sitting in a control room inside a mobile television unit located underneath Rupp Arena. The only game action he ever sees is what his camermen are shooting; this appears on the four camera monitors in the mobile unit. It is the responsibility of the cameramen to work as a team and cover all the action on the floor allowing the director to pick
An
1. FALSE.
This is a tricky question. The television cameramen, located mid-way up the bleacher section and right on the floor, do indeed have some of the best seats in Rupp Arena. What isn't true is that the cameramen get to watch the basketball games from these terrific positions . . . they don't.
During a game, cameramen must concentrate solely on that portion of the game which they have been assigned to cover. Rarely docs a cameraman even see
all the action as it occurs on the floor. For example: a cameraman covering over-all game action follows the ball with a "wide shot" and must overlook sideline action or other action occurring away from the ball; cameramen assigned to highlight and follow key Wildcat players during a game, will not be looking at game action in which those key players are not involved.
WKYT-TV cameraman Bo Gray comments, "The only time I see a University of Kentucky basketball game is when I

For cameramen to be able to give the director the shots necessary for good game coverage they must be knowledgeable about the sport, the officiating, and game strategies.
4. FALSE.
A "hero shot" is simply a close-up camera shot of a player who has just completed an outstanding play.
5. TRUE.
"Everything can be operating perfectly and then five minutes before the game begins anything can go wrong," explained C. Gregg "Figg" Newton, cameraman for WKYT-TV, "and the possibilities of

what can go wrong are virtually limitless."
Because Murphy's Law seems to have been written about the television industry, and especially about live sporting events, cameramen must be versatile enough to cover for any unforeseen equipment problems. Should the game action camera go on the blink, one of the other cameras must be relegated to game action immediately.
6. TRUE.
