From professional displays to student projects to
edible car and egg drop contests, there was plenty for
everyone to see and do at the annual Engineering
Open House Saturday.

Information about the open house was sent to
area businesses, elementary schools and high
schools, as well as being publicized on campus.

“The participants are rimarily from the general
public, professionals in the field, and student engi—
neering organizations who set up dis days and spott-
sor contests,” said Karen Biggerstaf , vice president
of the Engineering Student Council and student
coordinator of the open house.

“So far the day is going great and we’ve had a

Other groups like the American Institution of
Aeronautics and Astronautics, set up table displays
which provided visitors with information about the
organization and with samples of the students’ work.

“The open house is also a way for us to recruit
potential new members and help build up our orga~
nization,” said Kathy Sienko, a material science and
engineering sophomore and vice president ofAIAA.

The open house not only brought out interested
UK students, but also many prospective students,
professionals and families, as well.

“I came today to take a tour ofcampus and see the
engineering buildings and projects,” said Klint Blair,
a senior at Paintsville High School.

The much anticipated Sports
Illustrated issue featuring UK
coach Rick Pitino on the cover hit
the University with all the subtlety
ofan atomic bomb.

The issue included an article
written by \Villiam Nack, which
looked at the determination and
drive of Pitino, who has risen to
the top of the coaching ranks. It
focused on Pitino's coachin
career and how his job has affect—
ed his family.

But the article has touched off
something of a controversy
among the Wildcat faithful.

“I take issue with Sports Illus—
trated’s extreme attempts to depict
Rick as some sort of deranged
madman by using illustrations
instead of actual photographs,”
UK Athletics Director C.M.
Newton wrote in a letter to the

One illustration in particular

Joanne Pitino, the coach‘s wife,
tied to a basketball pole while
being pulled by her husband to a
new coaching job.

“Havin my wife tied to a bas-
ketball poE: and a backboard does
not depict the true story of what
we're all about as a husband and
wife,” Pitino said on Friday.

He said that he wasn’t so for
himself but for his three brlizlest
children who have to endure the
fiictures. Pitino told a story about

Jay Ingle, a second—year law
student, said he disliked the illus-
tration but that the article shed
light on what makes Pitino a win-

“(The article) shows what
drives him, what makes him com—
petitive," Ingle said.

Chad Tindall, an agricultural
engineering junior agreed.

“I don’t see what the big deal
was. Maybe the pictures were a lit-
the bit crude, but the article made
him sound like a motivator,” Tin—
dall said.

Sports Illustrated spokesman
Dave Mingey said the article kept
with the magazine’s mission of
taking readers behind the scenes.

“It is a very personal look at

Mingey said. “We portrayed an

“Sometimes little children can't tell
you who they are, so pictures make iden-
tification much easier,” said Mac Whitnel
of the Lexington Fire Prevention Bureau.

“Fingerprints you have for life; they
don’t change.”

In cases of abduction or missing per-
sons, the photos and fingerprints serve as
a current record of the children, facilitat-
ing a police search.

About 25 fraternity members partici-
pated in the project.

As their philanthropy the fraternity is

path while tryin r to pass another car.

Clark died ater at University of Tennessee
Aledical Center. The driver ofthe car Kevin Evans,
19, continued in the east bound lane and struck tWo
more vehicles.

Evans had multiple injuries and was taken to
A'Iarymount Hospital.

He was released into doctor's care yesterday
afternoon, said Kentucky State Police officer Craig

Evans was charged with secondidegree
manslaughter, first—degree assault, and two counts
of wanton endangerment, Sutton said.

Clark worked at Channel 18 for a year and a half
before taking the job at VVYAIT.

Gorham said Clark was liked by everyone: “To
me he was one of the most incredible people, he
would do anvthing for anybody. It is not really
often you loo up to someone your own age."

Gotham said Clark was a hard worker and was
happy about his new job.

“He was so pumped up about working down
there,” Gorham said. “It was probably the greatest
day he would ever have.”

Clark's fraternity brothers at Pi Kappa Alpha
found out about his death during a party at the
house Friday night.

“I made an announcement and ended the party,”
said Pike President Rob Leonard.

“We had a big meeting and just sat around and
all cried."

Clark was president of Pike for two years in
1993 and 1994.

He graduated from UK last spring.

“He was around for so long and had such as
impact on so may people, it's really hard,” Leonard

About 115 fraternity members plan to attend
