PROVOST The search for a new provost has become a major concern of the search committee, since Ken Roozeti stated his intent to resign as soon as a satisfactory replacement was found, according to Professor Jay Goldman, a member of the search committee. Concern about how long Roozen will be able to stay is increasing since he has accepted the position of executive director of the foundation for research and development of the medical university of South Carolina. He is supposed to assume this role beginning in August 1997. Goldman said the committee responsible for conducting the search began interviewing candi-dates Jan.

Hardin, upon (aking the podium to speak, thanked Bennett for his extraordinary work with the univer-sity, and said he hoped to continue the outstanding work Bennett had started. After addressing certain prob-lems within the university, such as turmoil among faculty, Hardin added, "This is a robust, healthy uni-versity, and Isee many of these per-ceived problems more as an oppor-tunity for change and advancement." Hardin was chancellor emeritus and professor of law at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hillfor seven years prior to coming to UAB. Additionally, he was president of Drew University from 1975-1988, Southern Methodist University from 1972- 1974, and Wofford College from 1968 to 1972.

FINANCE Currently, Linda Flaherty- Goldsmith is interim vice president of financial affairs and administra-tion, a position previously held by Sam Jackson. Before coming to UAB she had been the vice chan-cellor for financial affairs forthe UA system since 1993. Before that she was the vice president of financial affairs and treasurer for the system. She replaces Jackson who was fired by interim chancellor John Oliver shortly before the Thanksgiving hol-iday, according to Gary Mans from UAB Media Relations. Flaherty-Goldsmith was appoint-ed by Oliver with the approval of President J. Claude Bennett who resigned effective Jan. 1, 1997. Bennett wished to return full-time to the department ofmedicine as a fac-ulty member.

Whenever Dr. Harper saw me around campus, he would stop and engage in conversa-tion withme. He had a way ofmak-ing his students feel special. Over the years Ihave thought about Dr. Harper often. For almost 20 years Ihave wished that Icould be more like him. Dr. Harper was a great man, a great teacher. Those of us who knew him and remember a younger UAB willmiss him. Richard K.Duncan Class of 1981 about past, future events Harper was also a very talented actor who worked extensively with Town and Gown Theater, played a role in the movie The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter and was always in demand for his reading of Truman Capote's The Thanksgiving Visitor. In spite of the many demands on his time. Dr. Harper always had time for his students. He had a genuine concern for all of his students and was always interested in what they were thinking. In 1979, as a 20-year-old under-graduate, Ihad the privilege of being The academic community and the UAB family lost a much loved and admired member with the Nov. 15 passing of Dr. Hubert H.

Adean in the School of Arts and Humanities, Professor of Latin, Greek, and World Literature, Dr. At the last board of trustees meeting there was much discussion concerning the recent budget cuts leveled against Alabama's universities by the Fob James admin-istration. Talk was centered on how the University ofAlabama System, and the other institutions of higher education in this state, are being affected by the cuts, and what can be done to persuade the James adminisration that the cuts are not a logical remedy to Alabama's education prob-lems. It is interesting to note (hat during the time of this meeting, the front pages of the state's newspapers were This speaks volumes about the real problem with education in Alabama. The majority of people in this state aren't concerned enough that Alabama is ranked last among fiftystates in terms of quality education. Ifthe majority of people cared as much about educa-tion as they do about football, then the budget cuts for higher education never would have been allowed in the first place.

UAHPresident Frank Franz. After a speech to the board con-cerning budget cuts. Franz was Well,Ihave to admit this is the first time I've written Kaleidoscope, but a few things punched mybuttons in the Nov. 12 issue. For starters, Jeremy Foulks talks about his parking problems on cam-pus. Iwant to know -has there been any consideration for a large parking deck centrally located on campus? Sure, this may scar the look of some schools, but let's face it, we're in the middle of downtown Birmingham and nothing is uglier than that. At least this would keep people from jamming every spot in the vicinity. Secondly, there is nothing in the issue about the final outcome of "Policegate." From the sounds of Lance Horton's column, the police were ticketed, but it's not clear. If they were not,Iwant to know about it, because I've been stuck with some tickets myself. Finally, Iwant to address the topic of student services. Iagree with William Johnson in that he believes there is money being wast-ed. Iam having topay off my school bill and the last thing Iwant is excess baggage. UAB's politics suck and that is whyIhave chosen to pursue an edu-cation elsewhere in this state. Of course, Ican't get my grades transferred until my account is clear, so basically Iam now a prisoner of this institution. Kaleidoscope is a wonderful pub-lication that gives the students a chance to talk without authority breaking in, but it willonly survive if the students use their voice. Ihave just expressed my opinion and now J feel likeIhave accom-plished something, for once at this school at least. William Sheppard Student from student Issues spark r asked by Thomas, "What tangible improvement would you make with more funds? What urgent unmet needs do you have?" Thomas stated that Franz was "preaching to the choir" but noted that higher education was competing for funds with K-12 schools with serious facility concerns. "How do you compete with a leaky roof?" Thomas asked. Thomas could come to UABand look at the Vann Corr and Ullman buildings and get part of his answer. Also,Ispent a lot of time around the athletic department. Watching Watson Brown's firstI-Afootball team give Auburn all they could handle was a great moment. Best of all, though, was getting to know our athletic director. Gene Bartow. Bartow is a highly respected man inhis profession and a man who has action Working for Kaleidoscope in 1996 was truly an enlightening and memorable experience. Whether it was writing about Stevie Wonder coming to Birmingham to play a benefit con-cert for UAB, interviewing the Mayor or flying to Baltimore through stormy skies with the foot-ball team, 1996 was a real eye open-er for me. And those memories are just the tipof the iceburg. Ihad the opportunity to meet many of our adminisrators here at UAB. some of them who won't be with us in 1997. The one who Iwill remember most is outgoing President Dr. J. Claude Bennett. In spite ofa barrage of criticism and media scrutiny, Bennett was always a class act. After meeting him and talking to many of those who know him, I learned that Bennett has been a part of this university for three decades and has been a great factor in its rapid growth. Icertainly wish the best for him in 1997 in his new job. Iwas able to sit in on two sepa-rate board of trustees meetings. Most interesting was a discussion between Trustee Cleo Thomas and New editor waxes philosophical great concern for the welfare of UAB,not just in athletics but in all areas. Bartow started a basketball team from scratch in the late '70s, and in a few short years was whipping teams withnames likeKentucky and Indiana, thus bringing recognition to a school whose name most people around the country had most likely never heard. Iknow that UAB is having some tough times with basketball right now, but Iam confident things are going to swing back the other way. More important than wins and losses or attendance figures is the fact that Bartow is a great friend of this university and a great role model for its students and faculty. We are lucky to have him and I hope he willbe here for a long time to come. 1997 should be another interest-ing year, with all the changes in administration going on.

The first students to enter Bartow .A..rena get treated to a courtside scat j_ — on a comfy couch as well as free pizza, soft drinks and a UABbasket-ball. "We wanted to do something spe-cial for the first conference game." Jan said. "We thought it would be fun, being at the first Conference-USA game this year, and besides, it is on TV,"Melody said. The two girls entertained them-selves all night by playing cards, lis-tening to music and eating Cheeze-nips, and they were in fact the first students in the arena the next day. Besides being part of the large crowd that gathered for the Blazers' first C-USA basketball game this year, Jan and Melody were part pf another first this year. They were teammates on the first ever women's soccer team here at UAB. , . ,. "It was an unbelievable feeling being able to be part of the team this year," Jan said. "It is going to get even better because Ithink the team did really well and is going to improve a lot next year." "I can't wait for next year because we are going to be a team to watch out for," Melodysaid. "Ireal-ly want to play Vanderbilt again because Ifelt like we should have won that game. We were ahead 2- 1 most of the game before welost 3-2 and they were ranked 17th in the nation." Jan Caranto is a freshman from Pclham and Melody Bowes is a freshman from Katy, Texas.

"We make nothing close to what we made playing for tips at Robert's," McDowell said. "Hey, we arc trying tomake a livingand we're trying to pay the hills. And it's not that we need the money so much as the people we owe really need the money."

Gary Bennett (guitar, lead vocals), Don Hcrron (steel guitar, mandolin, dobro. fiddle), Chuck Mead (guitar, lead vocals), "Hawk" Shaw Wilson (drums, vocals) and McDowell came together to play in Nashville's own Robert's Western World (bar and country store rolled into one) one day.

In an even more blatant repetition of Jurassic Park. Crichton places two school-age children into the book, one of whom (just as in Jurassic Park) is a computer wizard. The children, like those in Jurassic Park, have their share of close calls with the dinosaurs. Even more troubling than this repetition, though, is the lack of consistency between Jurassic Park and its sequel. For example, in Jurassic Park, Crichton portrayed the velociraptors as organized, intelligent and social dinosaurs who successfully stowed away on a cargo ship to escape their island home and begin raising their young on the Costa Rican mainland. However, in The Lost World, Crichton makes a point of telling us that the raptors, due to a lack of proper saurian parenting, are poor-ly organized animals who neglect their nests and turn on one another at the drop of a hat. The portrayal of the raptors in The Lost World is perhaps more sharp contrast V^ fl Jurassic Park, r"~ world frus-lHf|(lUM|flB|j (rates the read- MLiUfll WUHUI er with an intriguing subplot that goes nowhere. Crichton tells us that all of the dinosaurs are infected witha mysterious, fatal disease that also has begun to plague human resi-dents of mainland Costa Rica. However, Crichton then takes this concept no further than allowing Malcolm to identify the cause of the disease. Given The Lost World's immi-nent release as a movie, Jurassic Park fans may want to read the sequel. To its credit. The Lost World keeps the pages turning with action-packed encounters with InGen's creations. However, in the end.

Like Jurassic Park. The Lost World promises dinosaur fans another big-budget movie, which will be released on Memorial Day. In The Lost World, a group of scientific adventurers again encounter dinosaurs created by genetic engineering. This time, the dinosaurs are livingin a now-aban-doned laboratory of the InGen Corporation, the bankrupt compa-ny that created Jurassic Park. Of the original Jurassic Park charac-ters, only one returns: mathemati-cian and chaos theorist Ian Malcolm. Richard Levine, an obnoxious Berkeley paleontologist, joins Malcolm, and Sarah Harding, a tough biologist specializing inlarge African predators, comes along as well. These three are faced with the task of preventing Dr. Lewis Dodgson, a nasty corporate spy from the BioSyn Corporation, from stealing dinosaur eggs from the newly-discovered InGcn laborato-ry- Like Jurassic Park, The Lost World features some great theories about dinosaurs' evolution and extinction, as well as plenty of dra-matic run-ins with (he InGen dinosaurs. Apair of tyrannosaurs and a pack of velociraptors plague any humans they run across, but The Lost World also introduces some dinosaurs absent from Jurassic Park — including a herd of pachycephalosaurs that use their bony skulls to batter a jeep and its occupants.
