UK Approves New "Wildcat Coal Lodge"

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - University of Kentucky officials have
approved the name of a new residence hall for the University of
Kentucky men's basketball team.
It will be called Wildcat Coal Lodge.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reports the vote brought shouts from
some who attended the trustees meeting Tuesday to protest "coal"
being part of the dorm's name.
Donors put up $7 million for the new residence on the condition
that it contain "coal" as its middle name.
The new residence would replace Joe B. Hall Wildcat Lodge, which
opened in 1978.
