Wethington promises University new library

Senior Staff Writer

UK President Charles Wething—
ton, in a move designed to ease fa~
culty fears that research would be
de-emphasized during his tenure,
yesterday called for a new library.

Wethington told the University
Senate in a 45-minute address that
UK’s library. the “heart” of the uni-
versity, had “facility problems."

“We’ve been talking about a need

to expand our library facilities for
some time here inside the Universi-
ty," Wethington said. “And those
plans are fairly far along in terms of

While saying no formal plans
have been made, Wethington an-
nounced he would form a steering
committee in a few weeks to plan
the new library and its location.

“We have not made a final deter-
mination On site, but it would be

Unstable IFC policy
faces change again

News Editor

Two weeks after UK’s lnterfrater-
nity Council voted to bring kegs
back into chapter houses, one frater-
nity is seeking to again amend the
governing body‘s controversial alco-
hol policy.

Alpha Gamma Rho President
Mark Waflart yesterday made a mo-
tion to have the IFC return to 3
“bring your own“ alcohol policy,
which would prohibit fraternities at
UK from centrally distributing liq—
uor or purchasing it with chapter

If the motion passes the floor later
this month. UK fraternities would
return to nearly the same alcohol
policy they approved last fall.

The policy was amended two
weeks ago by IFC 6-4 to allow cen-
tral distribution of beer at fraternity

Under the proposed policy, indi-
viduals who bring alcohol to frater—
nity functions would be given stan-
dardized lFC control cards,
designating the quantity and kind of
alcohol they brought to the party.

Individuals would then have to
take the alcohol to a control area.
which would be policed by fratemi-
ty members of age “20 and one
day," the policy states.

Only specific fraternity members
would have access to the control
area, which would prevent any un—
authorized drinking at parties, Wa-
flart said.

Waflart said the proposal is a
“good compromise" between a
loose “BYOB" policy and a policy
that allows central distribution of al-

cohol. The policy, if passed, should
give fraternities better guidelines on
alcohol control and enforcement, he

The policy specifies that individu-
als must present their IFC cards and
have them punched to be sewed the
alcohol they brought to the control

Fraternity members in the control
area reserve the right not to serve
any individuals that may be intoxi-
cated and may stop the flow of alco-
hol if necessary, the policy states.

Excess alcohol not consumed at
the fratemity function may not be
returned to the individual until the
next morning. at which time proper
identification and the IFC control
card must be presented, according to
the policy.

Some IFC members voiced con-
cerns about complications arising
from such a policy at the meeting,
although they said the proposal was
“a step in the right direction."

“There would be so much more
possibilities for fraternities to be
brought tip on an infraction of poli—
cy," Sigma Chi President Fred Wei~
denhoefer said at the meeting.

IFC President Sean Coleman said
although the proposal is a good step
forward, he will have to do “some
serious thinking" about the it before
the vote.

The proposal is modeled after a
similar policy in effect at Western
Illinois University, Waflart said.

A newly formed Alcohol Manage-
ment and Policy Enforcement Com-
mittee, made up of several IFC
members will meet before the vote
to discuss any improvements needed
in the specifics of the proposal.

But Library Director Paul Willis
said the site currently being given
the most serious consideration is in

He said UK hopes to present a
plan to the General Assembly in
1992, and, with state and outside
funding, the new library would be
ready by 1995.

Wethington hopes the steering

committee will develop a fundraiser
for the new library.

Last month, UK kicked off a
fundraiser to improve its humanities
collection. He said the current li-
brary is hurt by space limitations.

“This library at the University of
Kentucky is a very good one in
terms of collection (and) ought not
to be allowed in any way shape or
form to go down Wethington

Chancellor for the Lexington

Campus Robert Hemenway said the
old library is outdated.

“It’s difficult to use." Hemenway
said. “It's not as modern a facility as
we would like.”

Willis said that the new library
may include some of the smaller,
more specialized area branches that
currently exist.

“We want to examine maybe
some limited consolidation of some
of the branches.“ Willis said.

Library could be used to house spe-
cial collections. He said the new
building will have room for expan-

But O’Neill. who made his com-

Phillips cuts through adversity ?

Senior Staff Writer

Like the surgical knife that cut
deep into his knees, UK senior re-
ceiver Steve Phillips has sliced
through the vanous roadblocks he‘s
encountered during his topsy-turvy

“It’s really been a roller coaster —-
a lot of ups and downs." Phillips
said. “But this past spring and fall,
things are really starting to look up
for me."

True. Phillips, a six-foot two.
Jill-pound split end who is regarded
as owning the best hands on the UK

football teant. has undergone three
knee operations and three frustrating
seasons since he decided to play at

Three knee injuries and three
maddening, bowl dream-ending
losses to University of Tennessee at
each season's end.

“The past four years, it's been
tough knowing that alter the Ten-
nessee game, there would be no
bowl game for its." Phillips said.

And this season. his last with the
Cats, hasn't fleshed out as well as
Phillips had hoped it would. UK's
tough 1-4 start has surprised Phillips
as much it has anyone.

“This start is definitely a shock to
me -- I never would have thought
this." Phillips said. “We're just lack-
ing in our concentration right now."

Concentration is one asset that
Phillips has never lacked. Some
argue that it is just that —— his con-
centration — that keeps him com-
peting in collegiate sports.

Phillips came out of Fairfield
High School (Ohio) in 1986 not as a
sheer athletic machine, but as a re-
ceiving craftsman. Phillips was a re-
ceiver who, without incredible speed
or leaping ability, relied on well-
charted routes and impeccable

Without flash and eye-popping
speed, the three year lettennan
didn‘t catch the eye of a lot of

“Most of the attention came from
MAC and Division 11 schools," said
Phillips, who bench presses 340
pounds. “I really wanted to play in
the SEC."

After signing with the Cats, the
disappointments and heartbreak

In 1986, he was redshirted and in
1987 Phillips missed the whole cam-
paign because of three extensive
knee operations. The operations
transformed Phillips further into a
control-type receiver.

“My speed slowed down quite a

eighth place doesn’t seem like a bad

That was the situation facing the
UK women's golf team this meek-
end in the Lady Buckeye Invitation-
al Tournament at Columbus, Ohio.
The Lady Kats finished eighth in a
l9-team field which was billed as a
preview of the national champion-

ceiver for the 1990 spring by the
UK coaching staff. “It’s really hard

In 1988 he played tight end, but in
I989 he was switched to split end
position, where he has prospered.
He caught his first pass as split end
— one of 11 passes he caught for
161 yards last year.

Phillips says he loves to use tim-
ing and athleticism to make the
spectacular catch, like the famous
leaping one-armed touchdown grab
he made in last year's 31-0 rout of

“My strongest asset is my ability
to catch the ball in heavy traffic,"
said Phillips. “The hardest thing for
me and a lot of the receivers is try-
ing to run smart, disciplined routes
when we are tired. That's tough.“

Phillips, who was expected to
play a major role on this season‘s
squad, has caught only two passes in
five games for a total of 22 yards.

The bad start doesn’t seem to
phase the indomitable Phillips.

“1 think our hands are a lot better
than they were last year.” Phillips
said. “We’ve all learned to come to
the ball.

“Individually, I’m going to try to
catch every pass that’s thrown to
me," Phillips said. “Also, I'm going
to try and help the team wm as
many games as humanly possible.“


“We were a little disappointed
with our play on the last round.”
said UK coach Bettie Lou Evans.
“We moved from ninth (place) to
fifth and l was hoping we‘d move
into third because we‘ve improved
day-by—day all season.

that these are the teams which Will

UK Brass Ensemble displayed its potential

Assistant Arts Editor

The UK Brass Ensemble began its
recital last Wednesday night with a
clash of cymbals at the Singletary
Center for the Arts Recital Hall.

Conducted by Skip Gray, the 22-
member ensemble, comprised of
trumpets, 'trombones, tubas. horns,
percussion, and euphonium, per-
formed well overall. Each instru-
ment seemed to have its own voice,
its own soul. However. there were
distinct moments of untimely mis-
takes and imperfections that could
not help but ruin some of the recital.

Throughout the recital I was most

impressed by the seven trumpet
players. They truly carried the show
with power and strength behind
their music. The tubas also sounded
wonderful with restrained energy
which was released at single mo-

Contemporary composer Aaron
Copland‘s “Fanfare for the Com-
mon Man" was a loud resounding
first piece, followed by the contrast-
ing piece of Adrianon Banchieri’s
“La Battaglia."

Girolarno Frescobaldi‘s “The Bat-
tle" was one of the best pieces in
the performance. it was lively yet
controlled, terrifying but sup-
pressed, which caused the audience
and musicians to be enthralled with

the music.

Aurelio Bonelli’s “Toccata Atha-
lanta” was mediocre in comparison.
but was immediately followed with
the magnificent “Ancient Hungarian
Dances" of Vaclav Nelhybel. The
dances were played with delicate
precision and triumphant clarity.

A UK Brass quintet, comprised of
Todd Hastings, Teresa Rata, Kenny
Ringel. Mark Castro and Kelly Dia-
mond, united beautifully in the Jo-
seph Horovitz's five movements of
“Music Hall Suite.” The most im-
pressive movement which truly dis-
played the quintet’s mastery was
“Soft Shoe Shuffle.”

In fact. most of the performance
was well-played. Considering this is
the first major performance of the

was a good team effort and director
Gray tried to combine every sound

Solving nation’s
deficit calls for
new leadership

While Congress was debating how to fix the deficit thing
without taking responsibility for it last week, a trial in Cincin-
nati shed some light on how the nation’s coffers were depleted.

A jury acquitted the director of the Cincinnati Contemporary
Art Center of obscenity charges that stemmed from the Robert
Mapplethorpe exhibit last spring.

For the better part of a year, the Mapplethorpe show was at
the center of a debate over government funding of the National

Endowment of the Arts.

The NBA debate over dirty pictures coincided with a debate
over the constitutional right to burn an American flag.

The two issues followed a presidential campaign in which
candidates pandered to voters by wrapping themselves in the
American flag and making promises to fund programs that the
government had no money to pay for.

Meanwhile. the nation’s debt continued to escalate as few in
(\mgress and the White House gave any thought to what rami-
fications deficit-spending would have on an economy financed

by junk bonds.

Yesterday. Congressional and White House leaders attempted

to reach a budget agreement that they were supposed to have

done eight days ago.

liven with some government agencies shut down and thou—
sands of federal workers nervous about being laid off. our na-
tion’s leaders failed to come up with a budget package that ad-

dressed the nation‘s problems.

As The New York Times noted Sunday. a similar crisis in a
country with a parliamentary government would throw itself
into political chaos and call for elections.

As of the writing of this editorial. Congressional and White
House leaders appeared to be moving toward some sort of
agreement that would postpone addressing the real issue of fi-
nancial mismanagement for another 12 months.

Lawmakers have two options that will reduce the deficit w
cut government programs or raise taxes to pay for existing gov-

ernment programs.

Leaders understandably are hesitant about voting to raise tax-
es in an election year. Anti-tax rhetoric provides good fodder
for challengers facing an uphill battle to unseat incumbents.

Cutting government programs. on the other hand. can be
equally painful politically, especially when it means axing pop-

ular pork-barrel items.

But unless the nation‘s leaders are willing to either pay for
existing programs or cut them. shutting down the government
for a few days each year may become a national tradition.

The only way to change that may be by sending a new slate
of leaders to Washington the next several elections.

Dear Mike: Actually. you've al-
ready taken Step One by being
aware that stress can have negative
consequences in your life

Most people are all too willing to
tolerate day-to-day stress.

They say. “l'm hyped all the time,
my mind races, l do three times as
much work as anyone else, I never
need much sleep," and then wait un-
til they have an emotional or physi-
cal crisis before they do something
about ll.

By the time it‘s serious. they‘
