Wallace Wilkinson faces a daunting task as new governor

Associated Press

FRANKFORT — As Wallace Wil-
kinson prepares to take the oath of
office as Kentucky‘s governor. he
faces a host of problems -— some al-
most as old as the oath itself.

It is a familiar litany:

An educational system still strug-
gling to keep children in the class
room. much less teach them to read
and write.

A confounding system of taxation



that hasn’t kept up with the increas-
ing demand for services.

A tradition of regionalism that has
fostered suspicion and distrust be-
tween urban and rural, east and
west, northern and central.

An economy in transition. still too
dependent on coal and tobacco. but
unable to firmly establish a niche.

Students, officials
work to organize
Navy ROTC group

Student struggles to form
local Navy ROTC chapter

Contributing Writer

Gerry See had a vision. He wanted
to be a Naval officer. but there was
no such program at UK to help him.

“For guys interested in the
Navy." he said. “there Was nothing
at all."

So See went to work. And today.
See's vision is slowly developing into
a reality in the form of the Midship—
men -— an one-of-its-kind orgainiza-
tion in the nation.

See. a history senior from Lexing-
ton. was in the Air Force program
for two years. but wanted to switch
over to the Navy.

However. UK had nothing in the
way of Naval programs.

So last semester. Gerry and vice
president of the Midshipmen Tai
Doram. along with Navy recruiter
Betty June Forbes and UK Asso-
ciate Vice President for Business
Services David Carter, put together
a petition with 60 signatures and
sent it to the Secretary of the Navy
James Webb.

See also traveled to Long Beach.
Calif .. to address the National Navy
League — a Navy support group —
about his organization.

“They were really impressed," he
said. “They had never seen anything
like it."

The Navy has a Sea Cadet pro—
gram. similar to the Boy Scouts. for
youths. and the Navy League for
those who are older and interested
inthe Navy.

This semester. See said. has been
mainly organizational. bringing ev-
erything together.

None of this. however. would have
been possible without support from
the University and community. he

The UK Student Government As-
sociation and UK President David
Roselle. See said. have also been big
supporters of the idea.

Also. the Lexington Council of the
Navy League has been a major
backer. and has now taken over the
role as sponsor of the group.

“There were reasons for and
against being sponsored by the Navy
League." Carter said. “but it was
decided that it would be better be-
cause of the Navy League name be
hind them.”

Carter. who is spearheading the
effort to land a Navy Reserve Offi-
cers Training Corps on the UK cam-
pus. has acted as an adviser and
guide for the Midshipmen.

The main purpose of this organiza-
tion, See said. “is to act as an infor-
mation source (about the Navy i."

A second goal of it is to introduce
members and potential officer can«
didates to the rank system in offi-
cer‘s training school.

“This would help them make the
adjustment better. than the ordinary
civilian going to school right off the
street." See said.

The Midshipmen also plan to visit
Naval bases and hope to bring offi-
cers to speak about the Navy on

Official says program would help UK

Contributing Writer

UK may be the site of a new Navy
Reserve Officer Training Corps
soon. according to David Carter. UK
associate vice president for Business

Carter and the University have
been trying for nearly two years to
lure the Navy program.

Carter said there were several
reasons a Navy ROTC program
would benefit UK.

- UK would be only the 67th of
about 2.500 universities nationwide
to boast a NROTC program.

- Scholarships. as a result of this
program. would total $1 million for
those UK students selecting engi-
neering as a field of study and the

- The program would bring in
more than 200 academically superi-
or students.

- And the NROTC program would
enhance UK‘s opportunities to at-
tract US Naval research projects.

Carter. a former Marine officer.
decided to actively pursue the idea
of landing a NROTC program in
January 1986.

He went to then-UK President Otis
Singletary who. in turn. requested
the help of US. Rep. Larry Hopkins
of Kentucky. and the program had
its beginning.

Since that time. supporting letters
to Secretary of the Navy James
Webb have come from the likes of
Gov. Martha Layne Collins. Presi-
Retired Officers' Association Robert
Rives. Lexinton Mayor Scotty
Beeslerandmefmma groupofin-

The University submitted its for-
mal application to the US. Navy for
a NROTC unit on June 3. 1986. Now.
1'; years later. UK is a likely candi-
date for such a program for several
reasons. Carter said.

- UK‘s freshmen average ACT
scores have increased from 19.7 to
22.4 between the fall of 1983 and the
fall of 1987.

0 Some $4 million has been added
to the computerization during the
past two years.

0 A $10 million robotiCS program is
being installed.

' A $10 million supercomputer is
being purchased.

0 A $20 million research equip-
ment program is being imple-

0 And UK is among the top 70 re-
search universities in the nation.

These are a few of the facts about
UK that seemingly impressed a re-
search team sent by the Chief of
Navy for Education and Training.

The CNET team was on campus in
early November and it is its job to
determine whether or not UK would
qualify as a potential NROTC site.

Early indications from the re-
search team are good. Carter said.
and he is now trying to obtain a
copy of the CNET report. so that he.
Secretary Webb. Rep. Hopkins and
Roselle can sit down and talk about
the report.

Carter was upbeat about UK's
chances of being awarded the
NRUI‘C program.

“I'm personally convinced that
we’re going to have a NROTC pro-
gram." he said. “Our efforts are to
have it now instead of later. There is
every reason Kentucky should have


A General Assembly still learning

- to accept the responsibility of inde-

pendence from the governor and
perhaps itching for a fight to make
the final break.

Individually. Wilkinson is su—
premely confident of his own ability
to deal with the problems.

One does not turn a used book op-
eration into a multimillion dollar
business and defy all political odds
by winning the governorship by har-
boring great self doubts.

But it is that selfconfidence that

may prove Wilkinson‘s first major

Wilkinson has traditionally relied
on himself. his family and a small
circle of close friends and asso-

Yet government these days is not

many programs. too many people

Things no longer happen in the Ca-

pitol solely because a governor wills
them to happen

There are powerful interest
groups to consider: giant egos to
stroke; compromises to be made.

Wilkinson is not a career poli-
tician. That served him well during
the campaign. but it also prompted
him to make rash statements and
take actions that left him little room
to maneuver.

Haitian candidates clamor for national strike

Associated Press

four leading presidential candidates
joined the three major trade unions
in calling for a general strike today
to force free elections under the in-
dependent Electoral Council.

No of the top candidates. Sylvio
Claude of the Christian Democratic
Party and Lotus Dejoie ll of the Na-
tional Agricultural industrial Party.
on Saturday called for an indefinite
strike until the military-led junta
steps down.

The other two, Marc Basin of the

Movement for the Installation of De-
mocracy in Haiti and Gerard Gour-
gue of the National Front for Con-
certed Action. issued a joint
communique calling for a two-day
“massive warning strike.“

All four demanded that the mili-
tary-dominated junta rescind its
Nov. 29 decree dissolan the electo-
ral council. so the independent body
can renew its mandate to supervise

The junta —— termed a provisional
government — issued the decree last
Sunday, after bands of gunmen ter-
rorized people preparirg to vote in
Haiti's first free national elections in

30 years and after the council called
off the balloting.

At least 34 people were shot or
hacked to death and 75 were
wounded. Witnesses said soldiers
were involved in some of the vio
lence. Most Haitians blame the gov-
ernment of Lt. Gen. Henri Namphy
for the bloodletting.

Namphy has vowed to hold junta-
supervised elections before Feb. 7.
the second anniversary of dictator
JeanCIaude Duvalier’s flight into
exile in France.

He said his party "invites the Hai-
tian people for a day of mourning
and reflection today. which also will

be the first day of a general strike"
to last until the junta rot-Signs

ing candidates followed mounting
pledges of support for the general
strike first proposed by the Autono-

the country‘s largest labor group.

Radio Metropole on Friday. the fed-
eration urged Haitians to ”throw out
the criminals and the candidates
that sympathize with the junta “

 Kentucky Kernel, Monday. December 7. 1987 — 3







Cats get aid
from unusual
friendly fire

Dome trembled as a wave of 43,-
601 screams rose up, up and off
the roof.

The thunder was a near con-
stant rumble as Kentucky and [n-
diana were entrenched in 45 min-
utes of the most intense
basketball this side of the Final

But it was one time when the
pulsating noise dulled that the
Wildcats discovered a way to
squeak by the Hoosiers in over-

Indiana led 47-46 with 11:46 to
play when UK forward Cedric
Jenkins passed up an open 8-foot
jumper and tossed the ball inside.
Rob Lock walked. Time was

As the weary players trotted
through a maze of dancing
cheerleaders. UK coach Eddie
Sutton stopped Jenkins.

The rumble from the dome
dulled. Sutton draped an arm
around his 6-foot-9 forward and
pointed to a spot on the hard-
wood. Jenkins nodded.

“Coach Sutton made it very
clear to me to take that shot,"
Jenkins said. “He told me, ‘You
were wide open so just step up
and knock it down.‘ “

Sutton wasn’t the first to offer
those words of wisdom. But Jen-
kins has always been a bit reluc-
tanct to take them.

“I‘m not one to try and go out
and do something I‘m not used to
doing," Jenkins said.

The statistics prove him out.
For three years, Jenkins has
been about as offensively threat-
ening as Sweden.

He entered the game against
the Hoosiers with a lofty average
of two points and one rebound.
Those stats mirror his career ——
2.1 points and two rebounds a

Similar numbers would have
added up to a UK loss Saturday.
Lock and Winston Bennett were
embedded deep in foul trouble.
Bennett spent a whole two min-
utes of the second half on the

The Wildcats' offensive trou-
bles were not only in the paint.
Indiana put the clamps on outside
bomber Rex Chapman and forced
the sophomore into a 6-for-18
shooting day.

“Indiana was really keying on
Chapman,“ Sutton said. “They
were playing a little soft on Jen-
kins. I told Cedric a couple of
times he had to take the shots
they were giving him.“

Jenkins got the point when Sut-
ton literally made it. He took a
swig of Rob Lock confidence
tonic and promptly shedded the
skin of the old “Swoop.”

In a span of 2:36, Jenkins
hauled down two defensive re-
bounds, grabbed an offensive
board, hit a reverse layup,
blocked Dean Garrett’s shot and
scored again himself.

UK went on a tear along with
Jenkins. The Cats capped off a
16-5 run and went up 56-51.

“That‘s the way he always
plays everyday in practice.“ Ed
Davender said.

Jenkins has never played that
way in a game. He finished the
day with career-highs of 14 points
and 10 rebounds. He drained all
five of his shots from the field
and all four from the line. He
also blocked two shots and dished
out two assists.

“I thought Jenkins played very
well." Indiana coach Bobby
Knight said. “He was a real fac-
tor with their play."

“I can‘t say enough for Cedric
Jenkins.“ Sutton said. “He just
came in and did a great job."

Jenkins had to. There was no
one else to turn to. In the shell of
the Hoosier Dome. he had to
crawl out of his own personal
shell. He did.

“That‘s one thing that was
really sweet to see from the side-
lines.“ Bennett said. "The fact
that we do have some guys on
this team that can go out there at
crunch time and really help their
ball club.

“Hopefully that will be a char-
acteristic of this team.“

It's a characteristic that could
be lethal for others. Indiana
learned ltthehard way.

Warhol said that everyone would
have 15 minutes in the limelight he
probably wasn‘t thinking about bas-
ketball — much less UK basketball.

But somewhere in Kentucky‘s 82-
76 overtime win over the Indiana
Hoosiers at the first Big Four Clas-
sic Saturday. just about every Wild-
cat had a moment in the sun.

For some, like Ed Davender and
Cedric Jenkins, the period of great-
ness lasted more than a moment —it
continued for the whole game. Oth-
er's. Richard Madison and LeRon
Ellis for example. had only brief
flashes of brilliance.

But whether it lasted 15 minutes
or 15 seconds. every example of top-
notch play brought the blueclad
portions of the 40,000—plus Hoosier
Dome crowd to its feet.

"A team with less character and
competitive spirit would have fold»
ed." UK coach Eddie Sutton said.
“But we didn‘t do that."

Instead. the UK players bruised.
finessed. swished and dunked their
way to the win.

And just as every dog has his day,
every (‘at had his moment.

Here‘s the list:

- Senior forward Cedric Jenkins _-
not usually considered a major of-
fensive threat ~ played like an All-
American in the game‘s second half.

UK pulls together to slip by Hoosiers


“I've been waiting for
this game along time."
Cedric Jenkins
UK senior forward


He racked up 12 points and had two
blocked shots after Winston Bennett
fouled out.

“I've been waiting for this game a
long time," Jenkins said. “It‘s been
a while since I've been out on the
floor and it feels good to get back
into the swing of things.“

0 Guard Rex Chapman cashed in
his Warholian 15 — at least for Sat-
urday —— on one shot. Chapman. who
was UK‘s second leading scorer with
20 points. strutted down court and
popped a three'pointer to give UK
the lead in overtime.

Sutton: “It was one of those shots
where you say. ‘Oh no. no. no, . . .
nice shot Rex.' "

Sutton’s apprehension was due to
Chapman's opening shots of the
game v two airballs.

”It was a spur of the moment kind
of thing." Chapman said of the
three-pointer. "I saw (‘edric set a
good pick for me and when I came
off the pick I just let it go. It felt
good from the time it left my hand."

0 UK senior forward Richard {\lad-
ison said his flashiest moment in In‘
dianapolis qualifies for the best he‘s
had in his career.

Immediately following Chapman‘s
three-pointer. Madison. who has
been a veritable ghost on the floor
this season. took a pass from the
guard. broke down court unham-
pered and landed an earth-shatter-
ing dunk.

"I just hollered at Rex and he
threw it toward my voice.” Madison
said. "I had a couple of steps on <[U
guard Keith) Smart. When I saw the
daylight. I went as hard as I could.
It was the most exciting two points
of my career."

- Davender's period in the lime--
light lasted the entire game -- liter-
ally. The 6-foot-2 senior guard. who
led UK in scoring with 22 points
played every minute of the game,
including the overtime period.
