SGA senators to have more influence in judicial selection

Selection for the next justice for

Laws prohibiting homosexual be-
havior are good for society. state
Sen. Tim Philpot said yesterday.

“AIDS did not start from hetero-
sexual activity. AIDS started from
homosexual activity," Philpot said.
“Any law that discourages homo-
sexual activity is good for Ken-
tucky families."

Philpot described homosexuality
as “compulsive. addictive behav-

The Lexington Republican made
the comments during a question-
and-answer session following his
speech to the Federalist Society at
the College of Law.

At least two people in attendance
challenged Philpot's position, but
he argued that anti—sodomy laws
help preserve the traditional family

Three abortion bills and a lawsuit
against the state Senate were the
chief subjects of Philpot’s speech.

The Federalist Society is a self-
styled “conservative" group of UK
law students who embrace former
President James Madison’s philoso-
phy of judicial restraint.

Philpot recently filed a lawsuit in
Franklin Circuit Court against the
state Senate, claiming the senate
regulations that allow bills to be
held in committee without a vote
are unconstitutional.

Although Philpot and his co-
plaintiff lost the trial and an appeal
to the state Court of Appeals, they
have appealed the case to the Ken-
tucky Supreme Court.

He said the state constitution pro-
vides that every bill must be re-
ferred to committee and that the
committee must refer it to the floor
of the senate. But the system is
flawed, Philpot said.

“Bills come out of the commit-
tees with an expression of support
or they don’t come out at all."

Philpot also said he sponsored
three abortion-related bills, which
he characterized as “pro-life bills."
These bills were referred to the
nine-member Judicial Committee.
of which Philpot is a member.

He said the bills were kept off
the floor of the Senate by the chair-
man of this committee, leading
Philpot to file the lawsuit.

“A Republican has never gotten a
substantial bill passed in the history
of the Kentucky legislature,” he

Philpot said that Kentucky is a
conservative state, for the most
part; but people who are conserva-
tive are more quiet on issues.

“If you care about what's going
on, be (at Congressional sessions),”
he said. “The way the system
works, the majority gets what they



Senator at Large Jeremy Bates
presented the senate with a propo-
sal, designed by him and SGA
President Pete November. to select
a replacement for Christy Bradford
who graduated this year.

The proposal creates a committee
of five senators who will submit a
list of potential candidates, who
have been screened, from which

November will choose a nominee.
He will take his choice back to the
senate for final approval.

November said he wanted to
keep peace between the senate and
the executive branch and, therefore,
alleviate any possible confronta-
tions when the nominee is present-
ed to the full senate.

“I’m doing it, not only to keep
debate away, but to make sure I get
the most qualified candidate." he

“I would hate to show up at a sen-
ate meeting and have the senator
with one (candidate) and me with
one and put them up against each
other and cause strife between the
two (branches)."

Last year. the SGA Senate was
accused by then-president Scott
Crosbie of not accomplishing its
goals, which he said caused strife in


Despite November’s desire to
have less debate. the newly agreed-
upon process wrll not preclude de-

Staff reports

Court Spons reopened Friday af-

of fire damage sustained during La-

The fire began because flamma-

the sporting goods store, 385 S.

“Our guess is that a customer
must have thrown some clothes
near one of the store spotlights that
are in the front of the store,” said
Kyle Foster, a journalism senior
who works at the store.

Although most of the damage in
the store was caused by smoke and
water, renovations and merchandise
replacement amounted to Si 18,000.

Louisville mayor says no to presidential debate


Assoclated Press


Jerry Abramson expressed his frus-
tration yesterday over the failure of
the presidential candidates to agree
to debate in his city next week.

“To say that we are disappointed
is to put it mildly," Abramson said
at a news conference in the Com-
monwealth Convention Center, site
of the proposed debate next Tues-
day between President Bush and



Bill Clinton.

Abramson said he failed to get a
positive response from the biparti—
san Commission on Presidential
Debates by yesterday’s noon dead-
line for finalizing preparations. The
city. where Ronald Reagan and

Walter Mondale squared off during
the 1984 campaign, has already
spent eight weeks working on Io-
gistics for the event.

“Unfortunately, we have come to
the end of our rope and cannot pro-
vide the kind of product our nation
deserves,” he said, his voice echo-
ing over a microphone in the empty
exhibit hall where the debate was to
be held.

Abramson said the Clinton-Gore
campaign reaffirmed its willingness
to debate. but the Bush-Quayle

campaign could not agree by the
deadline set for the Louisville de-

Financial aid, housing

It's not too late for students to get
financial aid or oncampus housing
for the 1992-93 school year.

Bobby Halsey, director of the Of-
fice of Student Aid. said the amount
of financial aid still available reach-
es “the end of the rainbow.“ Be-
cause the financial aid money
comes from the private sector, there
is no limit to the amount available.

There are several types of need-
based financial aid for which stu—
dents can apply.

Pell Grants range from $200 to
$2,400, depending on the student's
need, and the student does not re-

Dennis Emery doesn't hesitate to
answer the obvious questions.

“Our goal every year is to win
the (Southeastern Conference)," the
UK men's tennis coach said.

That's a lofty goal, to say the
least. But. before you dismiss the
statement as being the normal pre-
season hype, take a look at what the
tennis team has accomplished late-

Last season. the Wildcats were
the SEC regular season co-
champions, tied with Georgia and
Louisiana State. Then the Cats won
the SEC tournament in Nashville,

Tenn., by beating LSU. The Cats
lost in the NCAA semi-finals to
Southern Cal but still finished sixth
in the national poll. On top of that.
Emery earned SEC Coach of the
Year honors.

But to get the full picture of the
tennis team's recent history, consid-
er the following two accomplish-
ments. For the fourth time in the
past five years, the Cats finished
with a ranking in the Top 10. And
last. but cenainly not least, the Cats
have been ranked in the Top 25 for
nine consecutive years.

The Wildcats have reason to be
optimistic (the Cats are ranked mm
in the preseason), although the road
to the SEC title will be nojoyride.

productive play out of Mike Hop-

Director destroys picture
with undignified rendering


By 80 Llst
Contributing Critic


In 15M, there were born to Eng-
land two great poets and play-

One would pen literary monu-
merits like “Romeo and Juliet“ and
“Hamlet.“ The other. fated to an
early death at age 29, would write
“Tamburlaine the Great" and “Ed-
ward II.“

The first. of course. was William
Shakespeare. The other was the
lesser known Christopher Marlowe.
Marlowe ts considered to be Eng-
land‘s first great dramatist and, at
the time of his death. England's

Marlowe‘s “Edward II" is the
story of England’s only acknowl—
edged homosexual monarch. At the
film's beginning, we are shown Ed-
ward (Steven Waddington). obses-
sively in low wrth the boorish Piers
Gaveston (Andrew Tieman). His
love for Gaveston ovcrshadows
everything for him. including the
duties of state. which he wholly ig-

Edward showers his favorite with
gifts and titles ol nobility, even as
his country grows poor and his wife
Isabella (Tilda Swinton‘i grows jealv
ous. Embittcred by her futile love
for the king, Isabella is drawn to
Mortimer (Nigel Tom of "Excali—
ber"). a powerful nobleman.

Moruiner is an outspoken critic
of Edward and, most especially, of
his apparent preference for Gaves-
ton over his country. Mortimer is
not alone in his sentiment; all of
England seems to hate him, as well,
because he is a partial cause for
their misery.

Mortimer acts to see Gaveston
exiled and succeeds. and Edward is
left distraught. Isabella. in an at-
tempt to regain Edward’s love, bar~
gains for Gaveston‘s return. He is
returned. but Isabella and Mortimer
have plotted against him and have
planned his murder.

Edward finds out about the plot,
and the country is plunged into civ-
il war —. with even Edward‘s once-
onal brother Kent (Jerome Flynn)
siding with Mortimcr‘s army.
Gaveston is soon killed. and Ed-
ward is defeated.


By the end, we see Edward pin-
ing away iii a dungeon. recalling
these tragic events to the cell guard
ordered to kill him. He waits in fear
of the fate Isabella has planned for

Derek Jannan. whose works in-
clude “Caravaggio" and “The Gar-
den." directed “Edward II." but in
many ways he misdirected Mar-

is preserved. but Jannan has set it

cal stage. He has filled the film

but Jannan has elected. instead. to
present a twisted and highly undig-
nified version. It would have stood
well on its own. but when littered
with Jannan's incoherent props and
toys. and saturated with his overly
political agenda, it is reduced to
gross misinterpretation and ulti-
mately doomed to obscurity.

Jannan shows little regard for the
actors in this film. a sad fact be-
cause they are very good.

Instead of being allowed to await
an exciting plot twist or character
development. the audience is left
only to wonder what wacky stunt
will be pulled next, each one an ir-
ritating distraction.

Underneath the gimmicks are
some very strong performances.
Waddington projects an injured
sensitivity as Edward. one that
makes him both earnest and believ-
able. Tieman evokes both sympa-
thy and contempt for his Gaveston.
Swinton provides an especially en-
gaging Isabella, projecting both
hurt and malice.

What has been done here to “Ed-
ward II" is truly a shame. Under the
skill of another director. it could
have been rendered a masterpiece
~— or anything better than this.

It could have reintroduced Chris-
topher Marlowe to the hearts and
minds of the public. Instead, it is
unflattering. and. indeed, Marlowe
must be turning in his grave.

duce the world to his high lone-
some sound —bluegrass music
has been without a home.

Surrounded by two of influen-
tial musicians, Lester Flatt and
Earl Scruggs. Monroe became a
mainstay on the Grand Ole Opry
in the ’40s But in the ‘50s
Nashville‘s ear turned towards
rock and roll. Acoustic music
was left on the side of the road.

In I965. the first outdoor festi-
val was held in Virginia as a
farewell to bluegrass. However.
it soon became the only outlet
for which this Appalachian mu-
sic could survive. Today. there
are more than 400 summer festi-

vals. However. up until two weeks
ago. there was no one place blue-
grass could call home.

Home now is in Owensboro in
Daviess County. About 30 miles
from Monroe‘s Ohio County roots.
it is a fitting place to house the
headquaners of bluegrass. The
Western Kentucky city is playing
host to the third annual Intemation-
al Bluegrass Music Awards show
tonight in the new $17 million Riv-
erPark complex — which houses a
bluegrass museum. cafe, Hall of
Fame and a 1.500 seat theater.

The show. which hm been twice

by Billboard magazine. gives away
20 major awards. including. Hall of
Fame inductions. Kentucky natives,
Bobby and Sonny Osborne are two
of the select few up for Hall of
Fame honors.

“I guess the great thing about the
awards, if I had to choose one
thing. is that the IBMA exists and
the fact that there is an awards
show and that people are more
aware that there is a large bluegrass
market out there."

“It (the IBMA Awards) takes it

out to places through either ra-
dio broadcasts or publicrty that
bluegrass may not get on its

‘There‘s starting to be more
people that are aware of where
country came from now. rather
than just like it‘s something
new." said Duncan, who is also
one of Nashvrlle‘s hottest ses-

a greater appreciation for acous-
tic traditional-flavored music."

eight state universities in Kentucky. makes many decisions that di-

rectly affect UK students.

Besides being the organization that decides when tuition is raised
it approves academic programs, sets minority enrollment goals and

guides curriculum.
