UK Presudent Davrd Roselle meets freshmen on the Maxwell Place lawn last week during freshmen orientation.

Housing, aid can be found
for help, UK officials say

Editor in (‘hief

if Lisa (“iurts had stayed at {K just one
more day. officials say. she could have re
ceived help

Faculty. students and Lexington resi~
dents offered aSSistance in housmg and
money to (‘ourts. who had arrived at tTK
late Friday afternoon only to find that
housing had no record of her

(‘hester Grundy. director of minority stu-
dent affairs. said that although the situa—
tion with Lisa was "very unfortunate." it
may help in domg something for future

tor Lisa .

The “outpouring of concern
has been really very encouraging. '
dy said

But Lisa didn‘t stay

Overwhelmed and tired. Lisa returned to
her Maybeury. W Va, home where she
still is a little sick. according to her moth-
er. Aleise She won't be coming back to
(K. her mother said. but Lisa will go to
school somewhere eventually

Lisa (‘ourts is an extraordinary case.
according to [K officials. and one that
should not hurt 1K in its recruitment of
minority students

"It has the potential of generating a per-
ception among blacks that this is a very
impersonal situation for black youngsters
to be sent into." Stevens said.

The same question was asked after a ra»
eial remark by tormer Gov AB. ”Happy”
Chandler at a Board of Trustees meeting
last April. Stevens said. But the incoming
minority freshmen increased from 76 last
year to i2? this year

The problem. Stevens said. is that many
people come to UK each semester in need
of immediate assistance in the form of
money or housing.

People. whom Jerry Stevens. director of
minority operations. said "fall
throughi the cracks "

Each semester he sees at least a dozen
cases in his department alone where assis-
tance is needed immediately. Stevens said.
"Students through no fault of their own are
confronted With situations they don't know
how to handle." Stevens said.

Many students get caught up in the hu-
reaucracy. Stevens said. Several things
can happen. Financial aid applications get
lost. computer errors are made or letters
are sent out late in processing information
to students. he said.

t'K officials admit a bureaucracy eXists
for students who need help. but assistance
is available.

The process for getting financ1al aid is
huge. according to Judith Marshall. asSis»
tant to the Vice chancellor for administra~
tiori. But students can be helped.

For instance. L'K‘s finanCial aid depart~
ment has set up an agreement with Uni~
versity Bookstore for students to charge
their books.

Marshall said financial aid can give stu«
dents short~term. small loans in emergen-

To try and help students before they get
to t'K. the financial aid department writes
students before they come to school. adVis-
ing them to bring money to tide them over
until their financial aid is released. said
Davtd Stockham. director of financial aid.

Phi Kappa Psi fraternity
gets long-awaited charter

Staff Writer

Establishing a new fraternity and get-
ting members to _]0ln it is a hard job.

Just ask the members of Phi Kappa Psi.
l'K's newest fraternity.

After a three-year wait for a charter. the
fraternity became Kentucky Beta chapter
of Phi Kappa PSI on April 23 this year

Phi Psi is one of 19 fraternities on L'K‘s

”Phi Kappa PSi has been on campus
since 1982 or 1988. but they disbanded after
two years and another group started it
over in the fall of 1985.” said Randal Ste~
vens. Phi Psi president

The first group of Phi PSi’s at [K did
not succeed and the Phi PSi alumns were
skeptical when another group wanted to
start a second colony and work toward a
charter. members said.

In order to receive a charter. Phi PSi
had to meet certain criteria and gain the
respect the first group had lost.

This group has proven themselves to UK
and their nationals by meeting their crite-
ria and winning several awards on cam-
pus. members said. Phi Psi won the
Dean's (‘up for highest effort and best atti»

The fraternity as a whole had to achieve


“We're hoping to get our
numbers up to 60 this year.
We had 36 members return
from last year . "
Randal Stevens,
Phi Kappa Psi president

an average. cumulative grade point aver-
age of 2.5. and have 45 members. which is
the campus average. The chapter only had
35 members. but it was awarded a charter
anyway because it was “so solid." mem-
bers said.

The fraternity received letters of appro-
val from Micahel Palm. assistant dean of
students. the lnterfraternity Councd and
the Panhellinic Council.

“Dean Palm was very instrumental in
getting us here." said Stevens. “Palm was
friends with a lot of guys at nationals and
that helped us a lot

Finally. a house was needed in order to
be granted a charter. The Phi Psi alumn
Housing Corporation provided the fratemi-
ty with the funding for the house. located
at 447 Columbia Ave. the former Tau
Kappa Epsilon house.

"We‘re hoping to get our numbers up to

IN XS makes stop at Rupp
during stadium ‘Kick’ tour

Staff reports

INXS has come a long way from
relying on MTV to help them break
into American airwaves.

Back in 1982, that’s all they were.
scoring hits with “The One Thing“
and “Don't Change" off the Sim-
booh Shabah album,

Consequent follow—ups like “The
()riginal Sin“ and “The Swing"
made a minor ripple, but the band
really started attracting a follow
ing in 1985 with Listen Like
Thieves. which had hits like the
title track. “What You Need" and
“This Time, “

That album was the spark to the
flame that ignited last year when
the band released its latest. Kick.
The album continued the band's
brand of white funk but this time
radio listeners really took hold.

Although they managed to fill the
smaller Louisville Gardens five
months ago. the band has now
graduated to arena status.

Lead singer Michael Hutchence
will now move his Morrison-like
posturings out of an intimate set—
ting but he has the magnetism to
reach his audience. which is proba
bly going to be screaming at the
top of their lungs anyway

If the move to the arenas has
made them complacent. then Ziggy
Marley and the Melody Makers
may be ready to steal their thun-
der The son of reggae pioneer Bob
Marley. Ziggy recently scored a hit
with "Tommorrow People" and
will provide a good contrast to
INXS‘ hard driving sound

you're back." And with good rea-

ty‘s 13.500 young people pack a big
economic wallop.

“(The students) are a big part of
our community in terms of keeping
our businesses open and operat-
ing." said city finance director
Kirby Ramsey.

Students. faculty and the institu-
tion itself spent about $91.3 million
in the city in 1%7. according to a
survey conducted by Bill Davis. as-
sociate professor of economics. Of
that. $633 million came from stu-

About 323.7 million of the total
remains in the local economy and
is turned over at the rate of $1.35
for every dollar spent, generating a
total of $32.2 million. Davrs said.

“That number reflects total dol-
lars that are spent and remain in
the community." he said.

Students last year spent an aver
age $521 per month. mostly for off
campus housing. an increase of
$125from 1983.

“Not surprisingly. the economic
impact of the university is rising."
Davis said.

Businesses in and around Green-

merchants say.

"The music stores. electronics

The economic impact Will likely
increase by more than 3800.000 this

Clarke, Moloney uncertain about special session

FRANKFURT. Ky. — Two lead‘
ing legislators complained yester-
day that mixed signals from the
Wilkinson administration have led
to mounting confusion about the
status of education reform.

propriations and Revenue Commit-

January for a special session on

On Monday. Wilkinson said the
agenda for the session would be re-
stricted only to education items
and not money. He also hinted that
the only education initiative on the
agenda would be his.

Lawmakers complained that was
contrary to what had been said in
private negotiations with the ad
ministration. They especially
warned that Wilkinson's package
had been defeated in the 1988 regu»
lar session and little had been done
to increase its popularity.

The issue was further clouded by
a report yesterday in which Educa»
tion Secretary Jack Foster said the
governor‘s opposition to taxes was
not an "irrevocable position."

Administration officials quickly
moved to discredit the report.

“I don‘t know what the adminis—
tration means with the mixed sig—
nals." said Clarke. 3 Danville

Moloney said it would be point-
less to bring the legislature togeth-
er to tackle education matters
without addressing the root prob-
lems of funding in the schools.

“If you‘re going to have a session
in January. you ought to do it all."
Moloney said.

“I can‘t see any point in us com»
ing down here and spending a lot of
money and not getting anything
done.” Clarke agreed.

Clarke hinted that if Wilkinson
crafted the call for a special ses-
sion to deal only with a very re-

stricted agenda. legislators could
simply go home.

"It only takes five of us to ad—
journ. " Clarke said.

Wilkinson's Press Secretary
Doug Alexander tried to clarify
some of the messages from the ad-
ministration yesterday.

“If the question is, ‘Is the matter
of a tax increase going to be on the
special session call in January‘."
the answer is no." Alexander said

Wilkinson has not ruled out the
possibility of another special ses-
sion specifically to deal with school
finances. Alexander said.

Furthermore. Wilkinson is will—
ing to compromise on education
programs. Alexander said.

Wilkinson's public relations cam—
paign on behalf of his proposals re-
ceived a boost yesterday with re-
lease of a 3&page brochure that
explains the program.

Entitled “QA. Improving Ken-
tucky Schools —— A Conversation
With Governor Wallace G. Wilkin-
son.“ the brochure will be sent to
teachers. school administrators
and others interested in education.

Meanwhile. members of the in-
terim joint Appropriations and
Revenue Committee yesterday re
ceived a status report on the school
funding lawsuit brought by 66 poor
districts against the state. The suit
alleged that the General Assembly
has failed its obligation to provide
an "efficient“ system of education.

N 0 plans
to continue
state AZT

Kentucky has no plans to contin-
ue a federal program that helps
AIDS patients buy an expensive
medicine for their disease, a state
official said.

“I made my commissioner
aware that it was being disconti
nued. and he understands that ei
ther the feds will fund it again or
the cabinet will respond in some
way or the patients will find alter~
nate sources of getting the medica-
tion.“ Dr. Reginald Finger said

But no final decision has been
made on whether state funds Will
be used to replace the lost federal
funds, said Brad Hughes. spokes,
man for the state Cabinet for
Human Resources.

The drug, known as AZT. pre
vents the acquired immune deil'
ciency syndrome virus from repro-
ducing. The effect is to reduce
symptoms and prolong life among
patients. though a study has shown
that about a third have adverse re»
actions to the drug.

A one-time. $30 million federal
grant was distributed among the
states to help AIDS patients who
lack health insurance and are ineli~
gible for Medicaid to obtain AZ'I'.
which can cost more than $600 per

Eighteen of Kentucky's CSII'
mated 62 living AIDS patients are
enrolled in the program. which
ends Sept. 30, Finger said.

”It‘s the only hope in a disease
that has no hope." said Jack Kerr

support group. “You have to have
