World awaiting decision on Thomas

‘Perplexed’ senators
decide how to vote

Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Supporters
of Clarence Thomas worked yester-
day to preserve Senate support for
his Supreme Court nomination as
senators “pained and perplexed" by
sexual harassment allegations de-
cided how to vote.

A key Southern Democrat, Sen.
J. Bennett Johnston of Louisiana,
reaffirmed his support for Thomas,
saying the allegations by University
of Oklahoma law professor Anita
Hill had not changed his mind
about the nomination.

“I believe Judge Thomas is quali-
fied. 1 said so two weeks ago. 1
know nothing that has transpired in
the meantime to take away from
that.” said Johnston, who led a
group of Southern Democrats to op-
pose Robert Bork’s failed Supreme
Court nomination in 1987.

But others were wrestling with
the issue as another former aide to
Thomas, Sukari Hardnett, told The
Associated Press that black women
in his office at the Equal Employ-
ment Opponunity Commission felt
they were objects of his sexual in-
terest and physical inspection.

“I am generally undecided," said
Sen. J. James Exon (D-Neb.), who
had been 3 Thomas supporters be-
fore Hill‘s allegations surfaced.

Sen. Christopher Dodd (D-Conn.)

said in a news conference yesterday
that the three days of testimony left
him undecided going into today’s

“I was so disturbed over the
events this weekend that I’m literal—
ly, entirely in the undecided catego-
ry," said Dodd, who had previously
been leaning toward Thomas.

Sen. Joseph Lieberman (D-
Conn.) who had originally been a
Thomas supporter, said the hearings
left him undecided.

“I’m as pained and perplexed as
the rest of America," Lieberman
said on NBC. “It's quite possible
that we’re not able to decide that
anybody is lying,” he said.

Sen. Dennis DeConcini (D-Ariz.)
another Thomas supporter, predict-
ed the Senate would approve the
nomination in a vote that both sides
expected to be close.

The vote was scheduled for 6
pm. today after eight hours of time
for debate.

“This is a cliffhanger if there ever
was one," said Nan Aron, executive
director of the anti-Thomas Alli—
ance For Justice.

“I believe Clarence Thomas. The
American people believe Clarence
Thomas. I have no idea where the
votes are,” said Sen. John Danfonh
(R-Mo.), the nominee’s mentor and
champion on Capitol Hill.

Alcohol ads
are deceptive,

Contributing Writer

Alcohol advertisers deliberately
aim their ads at underage drinkers,
Jennifer Weill said yesterday at the
Sigma Pi social fratemity house.

Weill, a junior, and Richard Can

entation titled “Alcohol Advertising
and its lmpact“ to about 30 mem~
bers of the Sigma Pi frateniity.

Advertisers are well aware of
their profit potential. and they use
sexy, youthful and deceptive ads to
entice young people into buying
their products, Weill said.

“It’s just a matter of a select few
people who have a vested interest in
the money they‘re making,“ she
said. “It‘s very deliberate."

Weill said alcohol advertisers

Since then hearings by the Senate

However, Garkovich, a sociology
professor, thinks the hearings ulti«

“I think women are gomg to be
more reluctant to make any com-

she said.

Garkovich said the media and
congressional circuses surrounding
the charges have trivialized them.

The process “hasn’t been a search
for truth." Garkovich said.

“The surface atmosphere hasn't

Along with his sidekick, Blake

It's those subtle images in this
movie that really make it. Picture
it: Across a crowded, smoke-filled
room, you see her. The woman of
your dreams, uh, nightmares.

A 4()()-pound Amazonian woman
who has been without any muscle
tone since the late ’705. And on top
of that, she’s completely naked.

actually see. Let’s change the sub-


After a while. the plot gets so
frustrating that the theater becomes
filled with tight-faced, stomach-
clenched patrons who are prepared
to shout vulgarities. You know
Styles is innocent. you saw that but
how do you convince everyone else
of the same.

There's so much proof against
him. There’s a suicide note, a video-
tape, a smoking gun and on and on.
After a few minutes of hair pulling,
you come back to the oh so subtle
fact that this is a movie and the
good guy always wins. Not always
but this time he does and with style.

Did the MPAA fall asleep during
this one or what? Flesh as far as the
eye can see in this movie and none
of it appealing. Excuse me for being
prudish, if you want to call it that,
but I don‘t get off on discussing
dental hygiene through the use of
pubic hair. That‘s what I said.

Let‘s not forget blood galore.
This was one of the few movies that
didn’t include Freddy (of ‘Night.

mare' fame) that made me queasy.
Within the first few minutes of the
movie, we got a glimpse of Blake‘s
punctured knee — dried. cakcd
blood protruding from the open
wound — this was a subtle clue that

what was to come would be several
times as vivid.

The man has no morals. Blake
kills the parole officer, his attorney,
even the Book Mobile man who
gave him a Bible to read. That im-
age needs no explanation.

With his handy, out-of-the-sleeve
gun, he pegs the officer in the head.
Fatality No. 1. Next comes the table

Sean Kemp runs
from Rupp floor

Senior Staff Writer

Now this was a story: Sean Kemp
climbing, with a jaunt, up and down
the concrete bleacher steps at Rupp
Arena yesterday. Climbing the steps
that he never conquered after UK
recruited and got him in 1988.

Climbing like he climbed out ofa
torn UK basketball program and
into the NBA. Climbing the steps
like he's been climbing the rungs of
the NBA ranks.

But when Sean Kemp. Seattle Su-
personics' star power forward,
reached the top, he did not stop,
turn around and complete lap.

He was running out of the build-
ing up to his Hyatt Regency hotel
room. Running up and away from
hungry reporters who remembered.

The reporters remembered the se—
rious allegations surrounding the
departure of Sean Kemp from UK
before he stepped out on to the
Rupp Arena floor yesterday to prac-
tice for tonights NBA exhibition
game with Chicago Bulls. Kemp's
UK roots go back to the Dark Ages,
to the days of Eddie Sutton and be-
fore. The days when gold-ringed
back—door deals and insidious,
knowin'—way-too»much booster
grins were as common as UK victo-
ries on the Rupp Arena floor.

Kemp, just out of high school in
1988, instigated one of the more
brutal scandals during those sick
days. He was reported to have as-
saulted Sean Sutton, the coach’s
son, stolen his gold chains and,
without missing a beat, pawning off

Will. They really did.

The Braves wouldn't bite. They
blew a bases—loaded threat early on
a blown squeeze, missed another
opportunity when David Justice
missed third base and then stranded
Terry Pendleton at third in the
eighth inning.

Then in the ninth, they stranded a
runner on third for the third time,
with reliever Roger Mason retiring
Mark Lenike and Jeff Blauser to
end it.

So even with Pittsburgh’s big
three hitters stuck on empty. it
didn‘t matter. Zane Smith out-
pitched Tom (ilavine and this time
it was the Pirates” tum to hang on as
they beat the Braves 1-() yesterday
for a 3-2 lead in the N1- playoffs.

The Pirates, a day earlier in dan-
ger of going back to Pittsburgh out
of the playoffs, instead will return
to Three Rivers Stadium for Game
6 on Wednesday night. What's
tnore. they‘ll have Game 1 winner
Doug Diabek, recovered from his
hamstring injury, ready to pitch
against Steve Avery, a 1-0 winner
in Game 2.

For the first time in awhile, and
perhaps for the last time this year,
neither the. Braves nor their fans
could get anything going. Sure, the
crowd of 51,109 did its best to
chant and chop. but there wasn‘t
much to cheer for.

Jose l.ind, the No. 8 hitter in the
Pirates‘ lineup. singled home the
only run in the fifth inning. It's
good he got the job done. Barry
Bonds, Bobby Bonilla and Andy
Van Slyke again slumped, making
them hitless in 37 at-bats with run-
ners on base.

Bonds has managed only three
singles in 20 at—bats, with zero
RBIs. and is 0—for-1} with runners
on. Last year. he got just three puny
singles in l8 at-bats in the six-game
loss to Cincinnati.

Not long after pawning off the
gold from Sutton’s neck, Kemp’s
pawning days were over. He was
soon playing forward for the Seattle
Supersonics and had enough cash in
hand to buy hundreds — thousands
— of the best gold chains money
could buy.

The boy-man was talented. In his
three years as a professional, he has
averaged 6.3 rebounds and 10.7
points a game. He has started the
last two years and is one of the
most talked-about young players in
the game.

“He's a future prototype of a

ward Miehael Cage said. “He‘s
young now, rough around the edg-
es, but he’s 6-9, he can jump, he
uses his body well.

“He's going to be a great one.“

His coach, K.C. Jones. though
saying Kemp “is already" a star, be-
lieves Kemp needs a little more
time to develop before he owns a
complete game.

But without the college expe-
rience, that set him back a little bit.
He lacked the maturity and the
knowledge of high-tech basketball."

Kemp‘s weaknesses, if you can
call them that, are his outside shot
and his inside moves. But he
worked all summer on those facets
of the game, and yesterday, during
practice at Rupp Arena, he looked
strong and at case under and around
the basket.

And off the court, Kemp has a
solid reputation as not only a bas-
ketball player but also a respected

man of the community. His sharp-
cut face and deep eyes and his artic-
ulate voice convey an intelligence
that many people in the Bluegrass
suspected the youth to lack.

Perhaps Kemp was more a victim
of the sell-and-barter system of
young, physically-gifted basketball
players than a perpetrator within it.
Maybe a little distance from the UK

school basketball players have givs
en Kemp the time he needed to
