The new Toyota plant will
bring thousands of jobs to Ken-

the Rev. Jesse Jackson.

it is not enough to have full em-

“In slavery we had full employ

He said the Japanese want
maximum profit but only want to
provide minimum wages and
minimum benefits.

The United States is concerned
that they do good business with
the Japanese. but in return. they
want Japan to be a good business
partner. Jackson said.

Jackson had planned to meet
with Toyota officials. but due to
the weather. the plant was

Jackson said he plans to return

He said he also wants to visit
other Toyota plants because they

of skilled. non-union workers.

"Economic violence is immoral

tals and taking land from
farm families. “

And the only way to stop these
transgressions. Jackson said. is
for whites and blacks to join to—

"Our generation's struggle

Jackson said.

the Democratic nomination for
president, Woods said.

When asked if he would be a

He said his first concern is that

“I will know in the spring.“
Jackson said. “There are matters

Things are finally beginning to
lighten up for the Lady Kats.

After a grueling part of their
Southeastern Conference schedule
that saw the Kats drop three of eight
games, Coach Terry Hall said her
13-9 team is ready for a breather.

But it‘s getting late in the season,
and with the SEC race lost, UK’s re-
maining four regular-season games
are vital if the Kats are to receive a
bid to the NCAA tournament.

Hall said she thinks her squad lS

after an 83-76 triumph over the Flor-

‘ ida Lady Gators.


Mississippi, is a team Sutton said
should make the NCAA bill.

Auburn and Mississippi are a
game behind the Wildcats with 7-7
SEC records and identical 14-9 over-
all marks.

And waiting close behind is Van-
derbilt, the Wildcats‘ next opponent
at home tomorrow night. C.M. New-
ton’s Commodores, even though they
are 5-9 in the conference, pose a
threat to any team in the confer-
ence, Sutton said.

The Kentucky coach said he hoped
that his team could go to the SEC
tournament on March 5 with 18 vic-
tories to ensure a better chance of
reaching the NCAA tourney. The
Wildcats have five more regular-
season games, four of which are
conference ga mes.

“I hope that we stay on a roll like
we are,” Hall said, “because we’re
gaining momentum."

And tonight may be a golden op-
portunity for the Kats when they
travel to the Queen City to play the
Cincinnati Lady Bearcats.

With a dismal 4-19 record, Laurier
Pirtle’s squad has experienced any-
thing but prosperity this year.

Yankees lose to Mattingly in arbitration

Associate Press

NEW YORK —— Don Mattingly of
the New York Yankees yesterday
became the highest-paid player pro
duced by 13 years of salary arbitra-
tion, winning a one-year contract
worth $1,975,000.

That surpassed the $1,850,000 con-
tract won last Friday by pitcher
Jack Morris of the Detroit Tigers.

Mattingly, however, trails Jim
Rice of the Boston Red Sox. Eddie
Murray of the Baltimore Orioles and
Mike Schmidt of the Ptu'ladelphia

Phillies. who are believed to make
more than $2 million a year.

The Yankees had offered Matting-
ly $17 million. Arbitrator Arvid An-
derson heard the case Monday in
New York and, restricted to picking
either the figure offered by Matting-
ly or the Yankees, chose the larger

Decisrons also were reached yes-
terday on two other arbitration
cases heard the day before. Both
players — outfielder Kevin McRey-
nolds of the New York Mets and
pitcher Danny Cox of St, Louis -—

0f the 19 cases resolved thus far,
management has won 12.

Mattingly and his agent, Jim Kri-
vacs of Clearwater, Fla., had been
trying to negotiate a long-term deal
with Yankees owner George Stein-
brenner, who offered a two-year
contract reportedly worth $3.5 mil-
lion. Krivacs and Mattingly rejected
the offer and decided to go through

“There were no darts thrown from
their side to us, or from our side to
them during the negotiations," Kri-
vacs said.

Mattingly settled on the 51.975.000
figure as an apparent appeasement

to Steinbrenner, who said he would
refuse to make any new deals worth
$2 million per year.

“I'm very happy and very pleased
with the decision,” Mattingly said
through Krivacs.“l‘m happy that
it’s over.“

Mattingly won a Gold Glove at
first base last year and batted .352
with 113 RBI and 31 homers. He set
club records with 238 hits and 53
doubles. In 1985, Mattingly hit .324
with 35 homers and an"'mnericarr

League-leading 145 RBI: lie-won the.

Ron Allen, director of student athlet-
ic admissions, said the 1,000 tickets

Guest tickets are $6 each and can
be picked up at Memorial Coliseum
today between9a.m.and4p.m.

Sweat looks like she will be the
fourth Lady Bearcat forced to sit out
because of an aggravated achilles

Offensively, UC is basically a one-
player team.

Leading the Lady Bearcats is se-
nior Jane End who is averaging 16.1
points per contmt. The 5-foot-6
guard is only 17 points away from
hitting the 1,000point plateau.

The only other UC player in dou-
ble digits is junior forward Gina Wil-
liams with an 11.6 average. Wil-
liams‘ counterpart under the basket.
Michelle Melzoni, is contributing 6.7
points a game.

Tonight’s game should present an
interesting contrast of styles with
Cincinnati's pattern-oriented offense
against UK’s transition game.

The one thing Hall said she hopes
her team can do the rest of the sea-
son is build its confidence level back
to the point where it was in Decem-
ber — when the Lady Kats at one
point owned a perfect record — and
receive an NCAA bid.

“If we can get our confidence
level back up to where’it could be,"
she said, “I think we‘re going to be
a competitive team."

to students

Allen said that 1,500 tickets to both
the Ole Miss game on Feb. 28 and
the Oklahoma contest on March 1
will be on sale to students only.

Students need a validated ID and

 Kentucky National Guardsmen

National Guardsmen were called

customers without power.

Snow spread across most sections

Shiite battle for control

BEIRUT. Lebanon - Shiites
fought an alliance of Druse and

Police said at least 24 people were
killed and 125 wounded yesterday in
west Beirut‘s fiercest factional
struggle for three years. They said
the toll was at least 30 dead and 150
wounded since the fighting began

Dozens of fires raged in rosi-
dential districts because the inten-
sity of battle kept fire engines from
getting through. Several apartment
buildings were burned and scores of
cars destroyed by gunfire and rock-
et-propelled grenades.

Grenade explosions and bursts of
fire from heavy machine guns shook
the city all day. Thousands of fami~

lies took refuge in basements and
bomb shelters.

Syria backs all the factions in-
volved. In theory they are allied in
the 12-year-old civil war with Leb-
anon's Christians, but they periodi‘
cally fight each other for domination
of the capital‘s Moslem sector.

The pro-Moscow communists have
crossed swords with the main Shiite
militia Amal since the 1982 Israeli
invasion, when the Shiites began
moving in on the communist power
base in south Lebanon

Last year, the communists joined
Walid Jumblatt‘s Druse militia. the
pro-Syrian Baath Party and Leb-
anon‘s leftist Syrian Social National—
ist Party in a new coalition called
the National Democratic Front.

Fighting in the streets halted ell
forts to locate Anglican Church
envoy Terry Waite, who has been
missing since leaving his hotel Jan.

pers for the freedom of two Ameri-
can hostages.

avoid responsibility
refusing to air ads

So the networks are worried about offensive advertise-
ments. That's understandable; after all if viewers are of-
fended, they won't buy the products and the networks Will

lose money.

But doesn‘t it stand to reason that if feminine hygiene
advertisements can be considered inoffensive enough to
run during just about every program on television, all
hours of the day and night, then just about anything can be

made inoffensive?

Well, if you‘re an NBC, CBS or ABC network represen-
tative, and the product being advertised is a condom — the

answer is no.

Last week the surgeon general, C. Everett Koop, told a
House of Representatives panel that he favors advertising
condoms on network television because the national health
threat posed by acquired immune deficiency syndrome

“overwhelms other considerations.


Koop has a point. The AIDS issue is a serious one.
There is no vaccine or cure for AIDS, and no one is known

to have recovered from it.

For the sake of public health, people need to be made
aware of the consequences of sexual activity. And what
better way to reach the majority of the American public

than through television?

The AIDS issue has become one of the hottest issues in
the news today, and in one way or another it has touched

just about everyone‘s lives.

The networks believe they

have a responsibility to their viewers to give them inoffen-
sive advertisements, but they also have a responsibility to
educate their viewers when possible.

While the networks have shoved the proposal to adver-
tise condoms aside, they have not put their foot down con-

cerning local stations.
