RFL staff expresses concern
at PPD renovation estimate

Arts Editor

Radio Free Lexington received a
setback Tuesday in its efforts to
reach the Oct. 1 goal for making it
on the airwaves.

The UK Physical Plant Division
estimates that RFL will need to
spend $24,550 to renovate a storage
area in the Student Center to fit its
broadcasting and recording needs.

By receiving the estimate, RFL
can now make definite plans on how
to collect the money needed to has-
ten construction of its studios. How-
ever, members of the RFL staff ex»
pressed some concern over the
amount of the estimate.

“We‘re a little disappointed about
the cost, but it‘s not devastating.“
said Mark Beaty, program director
for RFL. “It‘s not like death."

“We’re not really sure how much
more fund-raising we're going to
have to do, or even if any more
fund-raising is necessary,“ Beaty

More than one-third of the cost es-
timate lies in the installation of a
new air conditioning system — an
$8,590 expense that RFL members
said they did not expect.


ClRadio Free Lexington took an-
other step toward airtime by
making its programming deci-
sions. See Page 4.


“We were originally told that area
had its own cooling unit. indepen-
dent of the rest of the Student Cen-
ter,” Beaty said. “I'm not for sure,
but apparently the unit won't be
able to service the renovated area."

“The Student Center is equipped
with a cooling system adequate to
serve its original needs," said Jack
Applegate. director of the Physical
Plant. “The building system, as it
stands, cannot handle the high heat
load of a radio station or its equip-

Other major expenses in the esti-
mate include:

w$4,470 for construction of new
walls, doors, and windows;

w$3,250 to construct an external
exit and provide sidewalk access
and lighting:

r$2,160 for a loo—amp panel to
power its equipment;

wand $2.100 to build a wall sepa-
rating the station from the KopyKat
storage area.

RFL still needs to determine the
costs of minor renovation in the Pat-
terson Office Tower, where the sta-
tion will set up its antenna and

RFL also received blueprints for
the construction of its studios, and
the results were received with much
more enthusiasm.

The planned floor space of the stu-
dios are much larger than RFL ex-
pected, and larger than most college
radio stations currently enjoy.

The broadcast studio will measure
13 feet by 9 feet, while the produc-
tion studio, where shows can be re-
corded ahead of time and played
back later, will measure 11 feet by 9

"I feel really good about having
studios of this size to work with,"
said Beaty. “We were originally just
hoping to have room to turn around
in there with all our equipment. Now
I‘ll have room to scoot my chair

The Student Center will also house
several offices in the renovated
space. including those of the pro-
gram director and the production
and news staffs.

UK survey shows restrained
enthusiasm for Toyota plant

Contributing Writer

A majority of north-central Ken-
tuckiarm don't think Kentucky made
a good deal with Toyota, 3 survey
by the UK sociology department has

The survey, conducted last surn-
mer by a group of sociologists head-
ed by James A. Christenson, indi-
cates only one out of three people in
the 41-county area approve of the
$125 million incentive package given
to the Japanese auto firm.

These are the counties that stand
to benefit most from the Scott Coun~
ty plant.

Critics of the incentive package
have claimed the actual cost of the
deal could go as high as $350 million,
due to higher taxes and increased
demands on services from the state.

in June, the Kentucky Supreme
Court ruled in a 4-3 decision that the
package was constitutional.

The study team contacted the

same group of people that was
polled in 1979 about economic devel-
opment, quality of life and jobs. The
results are based on questions about
the new Toyota plant, and followup
questions from the previous survey.

Toyota officials would not com-
ment on the results until they read
the study, which is called “Jobs,
People, and Toyota" and will be
available this week from the sociolo-
gy department.

An earlier survey done in October
1&6 by the UK Survey and Research
Center showed a more favorable
view of the incentive package.

This study, directed by James
Hoagland, indicated about 50 per-
cent of people in the same area ap-
proved of the package.

The main difference between the
two studies was the way they were
conducted. The Survey and Re-
search Center chose a random group

of people in nine north-central coun-
ties including Scott County.

This study also included people in
the 18 to 5 age group. who are more
likely to be seekiru jobs and support
growth, no matter what the cost.

The sociology department study
did not randomly select its group,
nor include the 1840-5 category.

Hoagland said, “We feel our ran-
dom sampling method was appropri-
ate for this type of survey." Chris-
tenson was not available for
comment, but said in a earlier news
release, “We wanted to talk to the
old-timers, the people who lived
there when the plant was annmmced
and will continue to live there.“

Accra-dim to the release, the so
ciologists said questionirg the peo-
pie from the 1979 survey allowed

Shakespeare in the Park returns for its sixth year

Contributing Writer

For the next three weeks, Lexing-
t0n residents can enjoy a little cul-
ture while spending a pleasant sum-
mer night under the stars.

The Shakespeare in the Park festi-
val began its sixth year last night
with the opening performance of "A
Midsummer Night's Dream.“

The other Shakespeare production
will be “Macbeth," with the festival
rounded out by the musical “On
Blue Mountain." Performances al-

script, breathtaking editing and

Student’s study links toxic dumps , cancer deaths

Contributing Writer

UK sociologist Mary Harmon has
found a clear and statistical
relationship between the presence of
toxic waste dumps and cancer

The more toxic waste dumps in a
county, the higher rate of respiratov
ry and digestive cancer it has, Har-
mon found. It was because of this
correlation that Congress estab—

lished a “Superfund" in 1980 to over-
see cleanup of such dumps.

While researching for her thesis,
Harmon had expected to find a high-
er correlation of cancer in counties
that had Superfund dumps.

“You would expect to find a
relationship between the Superfund
dumps in a county,“ Harmon said.
“because they are considered the
most dangerous to human health
and are only eligible for the Super-
fund cleanup,"

The Environmental Protection
Agency determines which dumps
are most dangerous by measuring
how close a dump is to populated
areas and water supplies.

However, those Superfund sites
are not always linked with the high-
est rates of cancer. When comparing
the rates of cancer in counties with
Superfund dumps with the rates in
counties with non-Superfund dumps,
“it (the dumpsi didn‘t make a whole
lot of difference," said Louis Swan-

Financial problems and construc-

Although it is still unclear when
WRFL-FM will go on the air, the
station has been contacting record

“We‘re going to allow our DJs to
do their own thing," said Beaty. “I
don't want to try to fit our jocks into

WRFL is beginning to build its
own music library, which currently
comprises about 200 albums. By the
end of the school year, the library
should include over 2,000 albums,
Urch said.

WRFL also plans to broadcast
many non-music programs, includ-
ing local and national news broad-
casts, interview shows with local
personalities, weather broadcasts
and sports coverage.

Recently, WRFL applied to and
was accepted by The Gavin Report,
one of the most important trade
magazines in the recording industry.
The Gavin Report supplies the Col-
lege Music Top 10 lists to Rolling
Stone magazine.

“Being accepted by The Gavin Re-
port is an incredible vote of confi-
dence," Urch said.

By being a workirg member in
The Gavin Report, WRFL will con-
tribute to the magazine's survey of
college radio stations and will be in-
cluded in their College Music Top 10
lists in Rolling Stone.

Senate Council looking ahead to fall agenda


As chairman of the Senate Council
this year, Bill Lyons sees himself as
a broker.

As a liaison between the faculty
and the administration, Lyons, a po-
Iitical science professor, said his
most important role this year is to
develop a solid relationship between
the faculty and the new president.

“My major goal is to see if we can
establish a good, solid relationship
between the elected faculty govern-
ance on campus and the new presi-

dent,“ said Lyons, who has already
had several lengthy discussions with
David P. Roselle.

Based on those discussions. Lyons
said he believes that Roselle will be
receptive to faculty needs and desir-
es, particularly those addressed by
the council.

“1 think Dr. Roselle is sensitive
and open to the faculty," Lyons
said. “I think his style and his incli-
nation is to seek the broadest possi-
ble viewpoint by talking to faculty
and faculty representatives.“

Among the issues that faculty rep-
resentatives on the Senate council

will be dealing with in the fall in—
clude finally approving the Universi-
ty Studies Program and revising the
policy on incomplete grades.

The committee established by
Lyons' predecessor. Wilbur Frye, to
investigate the feasibility of creating
two “dead days” for students to
study before finals, will not meet
until the Student Government Asso-
ciation gauges student‘s viewpoint.

“IBM made the best proposal in

sheets individually . . . and IBM got
the highest score." he said.

UK President David P. Roselle

“The new computer is put in a
category of a super computer as
contrasted with the ordinary com-
puter we now have.“ Blanton said.
“The IBM super computer is consid-
erably different and will do much,
much more than the current com-
puter does.”

Special kinds of renovations will
be needed in McVey Hall and UK is
in the process of making cost esti-
mates. An architect has been hired
for the computer ren0vation.

"(The purchasing process) started
over a year ago and we are now con-
cluding it." said J. Robert Heath. di-
rector of the computing center.

“The $5 million is from the state
as part of our last biennial appro-
priation." Heath said.

A formal announcement of the
computer purchase is expected after
the first of August. “Dr. Roselle will
be making the announcement,"
Heath said.

Blanton says the computer should
be ready for operation by Jan. 1.

Money, research
reasons to keep
Coldstream farm

At the June 23 Board of Trustees meeting
there was a rather heated discussion over
the future of Coldstream Farm.

Former Gov. Albert “Happy” Chandler,
who donated the land to the University more
than 30 years ago, was displeased that the
board was even considering the sale of the

Nonetheless, members of the board voted
to appoint a three-member subcommittee to
begin studying the preposed disposition of
the farm.

Quite a few board members and UK ad-
ministrators seem to be in favor of selling
the land to developers who have been been
baying like hounds for the Opportunity to
place a mall on the land.

Last year UK and Lexington’s UrbanIntern witnesses contra hearings, North testimony

County Council commissioned an architectu-
ral firm to develop a plan to show how the
farm could be used. The proposal suggested
building a mall, condominiums and resi-
dential lots.

Just what Lexington needs, another mall.

While some may say it is irrational to fore-
go the money that selling or leasing the land
could bring UK, is it any less rational to put
ourselves in a profit-motive mind-set where
we develop every piece of land just for the
sake of making money?

‘It is hard to measure in numbers the aes-
thetic value of land versus its monetary
value. If you look at it in those terms, sure,
selling the land is advantageous.

But money is not and should not be the
only issue involved in deciding whether Cold-
stream should be sold, leased or traded.

What is most disturbing is the precedent
that such a decision could set for future land
sales. If Coldstream is to be sold, does this
mean that every piece of land deemed use-
less by the University is going to be devel-
oped for money. We shudder at the thought.

It is even more disturbing to note that if
the the University sells the land the money
could be taken from the University by the
state legislature.

Kentucky Revised Statutes stipulate that
monies acquired by sale of state properties
must revert back to the original owner of the
property. In this case the original owner is
the state.

UK could very well not see a dime of the
profits of selling Coldstream and the College
of Agriculture, which might enjoy the profits
of such a sale, could suffer in the process.

The third and most important reason not
to sell the land is the fact that it‘s just that
— land. God‘s glorious gift to Kentucky that
has made the Bluegrass known throughout
the world.

You can tear up a farm and make a mall
but you can‘t tear up a mall and make a

WASHINGTON — I won’t soon forget
my afternoon with Lt. Col. Oliver North.

This summer, while serving an inter-
nship in the US. Senate Press Gallery in
Washington, 00, my supervisor asked
me if I wanted to sit in on the Iran-contra
hearings while North was testifying. As an
aspiring journalist, I naturally jumped at
the chance.

Death threats had been made against
North and a protest had taken place in the
hearings the day before, so security was
tight. But my temporary press card made
the ordeal go much faster.

As I walked through the door, North im-
mediately became my center of attentim.

I couldn‘t help but feel a bit in awe. He
sat there and confidentl
