Hundreds of UK students received precautionary
drugs from University Health Services, officials said
yesterday, for possible exposure to meningococcal
meningitis, which killed a UK student \Vednesday

The scare followed the death of freshman .lana
Oliver, 1‘), who fell ill late Tuesday afternoon. She
was taken to the UK Chandler Medical Center-
Emergency Room at about 3 a.m. and died four
hours later from meningococcal meningitis sepsis.

After 3 pm. yesterday students stopped coming in
for the drug, and officials decided not to extend the
center's hours. The Medical Center will reopen at 8
am. today.






Ofthe 330 students, faculty and staff interviewed
by the Medical Center, 264 people received the
antibiotic rifampin, said Dr. Spencer Turner. direc~
tor of University Health Services.

incident, but we take it seriously because we would
be damned fools if we didn‘t."

He wanted to make sure that those students who
may have had intimate contact with Oliver under-
stood the situation and knew the courses to follow.

Amid questions about the disease and its effects,
Turner took timeout to mourn Oliver‘s loss.

:\ familiar sight nonetheless,
but do these students think about
the statistics related to cigarette

According to a government
report on tobacco use, Kentucky
ranks fourth in tobacco—related

More than 3‘) percent of adults
18 and older in Kentucky smoke,
compared to a national average of
23 percent.

Eric Nealis, computer science
junior, has been smoking since he
turned 18.

“I don’t really care about the
statistics. I continue to smoke
when I'm bored," Nealis said.

For Amy Spicer, a biology
junior, the statistics have had an
effect on her.

“I’m totally aware of all the
statistics and I have cut down
(smoking) a little," she said.

“I don't think it's something we
plan on doing for the rest of our
lives. It‘s just a phase that I‘m
going through."

She sees smoking as a way to
relieve stress, “\Vhen you’re sit—
ting there studying, the easiest
thing to do is light up a cigarette.”

Spicer understands the plight of
the secondhand smoker, “I'm real—
ly sympathetic to people who
don't like cigarette smoke."

“\Vhen I'ni outside and some-
one's sitting beside me who
doesn't like smoke I'll be more
than glad to put it out."

Lori Strosnider, chemical engi-
neering senior, has smoked 3—4

released last month showed smok—
ing among teens has increased to
the highest level in 16 years.

Is it any coincidence that the
average age ofa smoker is 13 and
becomes a daily smoker by 14 1/2?

Undeclared sophomore Rudy
Baca fits this description, having
smoked since the beginning of his
teen—age years.

However, the statistics are not a
concern to him.

“Of course I know what’s going
on, but I’ve been smoking since
13,” Baca said.

A familiar phrase but a small
amount of people actually do quit.

Part of the problem is the nico-
tine in the cigarettes. Nicotine is
one of the most addictive chemi-
cals available.

medical costs related to smoking's

Stacey Phillips, an undeclared
freshman, maintains a nonchalant
attitude about the report.

“I don‘t really think about the
statistics when I light up," Phillips

“I guess I have a short—term

don’t think about on down the

Phillips concluded, “I plan on
quitting someday, like everybody
else says."

uniioiii Congress votes
on sweeping changes

\VASHINU’I‘ON ~ Congress voted yesterday
to free the exploding television, telephone and
home computer industries to jump into each
other‘s fields and reshape the culture and coin—
merce of the 21st century.

The bill — saluted by Sen. Larry Pressler, R—
S.D., as a telectiiiimunications “road map" into the
new century —- flew through the House. 414—16,
and then the Senate, (ll-5,

President Clinton hailed the action, saying in a
statement, “consumers will receive the benefits of
lower prices, better quality and greater choices in
their telephone and cable services, and they will
continue to benefit from a diversity of voices and
viewpoints in radio, television and the print

The president will sign the bill “probably within
a w eek," Vice President Al (iore said in a telephone

The reworking of the 61-year—old Communica—
tions Act would let local and long-distance tele—
phone companies and cable companies into each
others‘ businesses, deregulate cable rates and allow
media companies to more easily expand their hold—
ings. It also would restrict smutty material on com-
puter networks and television.


Gingrich would accept smaller tax cuts

\\':\SI II.\'(;T( IN 7— In the latest budget retreat
by Republicans, House Speaker Newt Gingrich
said yesterday that he was considering a smaller,
shorter—lasting tax package than the (SOP has

In their negotiations over balancing the budget
over seven years, one of the severest clashes
between President Clinton and Republicans has
been over tax cuts. In their most recent offers, the
(i( )P was seeking about $201) billion in lower taxes
over seven years and Clinton $130 billion. Many
congressional Democrats want none.

But after a meeting of House Republicans, (fin-
grich told reporters that he would “look at a four—
year package with all the major tax cuts." He did
not say how much it would cost, but said it “frankly
is a smaller number."

\Vhen they took over Congress last year, House
Republicans called their tax-cut plan the “crown
jewel" of their “Contract “'ith America" campaign
manifesto. The plan includes a $500 per child tax
credit for many children aged 18 and under, plus a
reduction in the capital gains tax rate paid on prof—
its ofproperty sales.

Clinton proposed a similar tax credit for chil-
dren, and has said he would accept a lower capital
gains tax -—— long a top (501’ priority - as part of a
balanced—budget deal.


Janet Jackson says lamily is normal
NEW" YORK —— janet jackson, whose brother,

as you know, likes to wear eyeliner and a surgical
mask and whose sister has set up a
tell—all 900 number. says hers is a
completelynormal family.

“The only difference is that
they're on television, you see their
faces in the paper and you listen to
the music on the radio,” Jackson
said in an interview which aired
\Vednesday night on Black Enter-
tainment Television.

She blames the media for the
negative perception of her family.

She also noted that Blazer has a number of expenses it has to cover,

Undeclared sophomore Josh Short seemed unimpressed.
“I'd rather have cheap food than nice wallpaper,” he said.

Food was the primary beef addressed, but other issues included the
campus crime rate and safety.

Coleman said that the idea for the meeting began

because she felt that she wasn't doing enough for
SGA, but she didn't know exactly what she was sup—
posed to do.

“I wanted to organize an informal meeting
where I could find out what people wanted
changed,“ said Coleman, an advertising freshman.

The idea ballooned.

Why not have some of the other SGA senators
attend, she thought.

Then: why not the administration, too?

“What better way to one, show students that
administrators are approachable; and two, get stu-
dents’ ideas straight to the people who make the
decisions, than to have these people take an hour or
two out of their Thursday night, show up at our
dorm, and listen,” she said.

And informal the mood remained.

Music education freshman Ryan Akers com-

plained that insufficient lighting on the band field made it difficult to
read his sheet music during night practices.

Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Jim Kuder jokingly remarked,
“You guys read the music?”
