By Molly Mize
Contributing Writer

College campuses have earned a re utation for
being environments conducive to the dbvelopment
of eating disorders by young women.

Many UK students admit that they have known or
know of an individual whom they suspect, or know,
IS an anorexnc.

“Frail, lifeless, almost dying,” said
Laura Disney, elementary education
junior, of an anorexic friend,“and her hair
was falling out.”

Anorexia Nervosa is defined as the
refusal to maintain a minimal normal
weight for age and height.

For example, if an individual reaches a
body weight 15 percent below normal, or
fails to gain the expected weight during a
period of growth, they may be considered at risk.

Up to one in 100 American women fall into this

According to a medical exam used in diagnosing
anorexia nervosa, thinning or dulling hair is one of
the common symptoms.

Although family and friends need to watch for
such signs if they suspect a loved one is at risk, when
women go away to college the risk can increase ten-
fold since parents are no longer able to monitor their

However, staff members of the residence halls
have been informed of the danger signs.

Rapid weight loss, mood swings and sudden with-
drawal from social activity are examples of the warn—
ing signs that Resident Advisers need to be aware of,
said Alyssa Herald, an elementary education senior
and RA in Donovan Hall.However, Herald has little
faith anorexia will ever be a solved issue, even ifthe
disease is caught early.

“There always has been and there always will be
anorexia,” Herald said. “Women have always strived
to attain the perfect body — up until the beginning
of this century women were trying to fit into

to society's weight norms."

Women in college are especially
at risk, as dating pressures increase and authority fig-
ures, such as parents, disappear.

“One of the misconceptions is that it is a matter of
self—discipline,” said Dr. Laurie Humphries, M.D.
and eating behavior specialist. “There’s a tolerance
for different body types."

But no matter how many positive influences are
present, it is still hard to convince college women

that they do not have to be thin to be accepted.
Fellow students, RAs and even instructors may be
able to prevent a problem, if they know the warning
signs. Some of the common and obvious symptoms
are intense fear of becoming fat even if they are
underweight, the absence of at least three consecu-
tive periods in females, rapid weight loss and yellow-
ing of fingernails.

By Kathy flailing

Assistant News Editor

Two UK fraternities were held partly liable by a
Boone coun jury last week in a negligence lawsuit
over a 1993 runken-driving death.

Although the driver and the victim were assessed
80 percent of the responsibility for the

den, all parties are by invitation only and on-campus
parties must include a est list, sober driver list and
an IFC-approved security guard.

When you’re Kentucky’s flagship university,
enrollment stability means everything.

Few changes in enrollment numbers have
occurred, according to numbers released by UK yes-
terday. The total student po ulation on the Lexmg-
ton campus and the Chand er Medical Center has
ex rienced a “less than one rcent decrease,” from

1993, is expected to stay at 43,619, the same as last


Graduate enrollment, on the rise since fall 1993,
will remain at last year’s total of 5,240 students.

The number of black freshmen, who comprise
about seven percent of the new freshman class, went
up 10 percent. In addition, approximately 235 black
students are enrolled in graduate schools, an increase
of 15 percent. Overal , 1,200 black students are
attending UK, a growth of two rcent.

Freshman class size and sea emic proficien has
been consistent. About 2,650 first-year stu ents,
including 73 National Merit Scholars, 125 Gover-
nor’s Scholars, 118 high school valcdictorians and 61
salutamrians, have set a UK record with a cumulative

“We have four members remain sober and sit at

close eye one everyone. We are very strict on that.

She said party olicies have gotten stricter over

Brassine said four years ago, fraternities averaged
four or five in-house social events and seven or eight
out-of-house parties per semester. Now chapters
host about two or three in—house and four or five off-

6 said the reduction is due partly to liability risks
and also to changes in fraternities.

“A lot of fraternity life is starting to focus on more
than just social as ects,” Brassine said. “Things have
changed and eop e don’t realize it.”

Overall, rassine said all organizations reduce

Patton gives
Clinton tobacco input

FRANKFORT— Gov. Paul Patton was 0 ti-
mistic yesterday after a meeting with ite
House officials over alternatives to the Food and
Dru Administration’s regulation of nicotine as
an a dictive drug.

Patton and Billy Ray Smith, state agriculture
commissioner, met with President Clinton’s chief
counsel, Jack Quinn. Representatives from the
offices of U.S. Sen. Wendell Ford, D—Ky. and
U.S. Rep. Scotty Baesler, D—6th District, were
also present.

Patton and the others feel Con ess, not the
FDA, should decide how best to Etiep children
from smoking. Ford and Baesler have proposed
legislation to deal with the issue.

Patton said yesterday’s meeting was a “starting
point” and details of any proposed legislation
would be discussed in future meetings.

Clinton signed a measure last month giving the
FDA authority to take action to restrict underage
access to tobacco. The main attack is at tobacco
advertising, but many fear it is a prelude to an
outright ban on smoking.

Patton has threatened to sue the federal gov-
ernment to block the regulations.


WASHINGTON — The Senate voted yesterday
to maintain a ban on health insurance coverage of
abortions for federal employees.

()n a 53-45 vote, it retained a provision deny—
ing abortion covera e except in cases of rape or
incest or when the ife of the woman is endan—

The ban, in effect during the Reagan and Bush
administrations, was dropped during the first two
years of the Clinton administration but was rein-
stated when Republicans took control of Congress
last year.

Defenders of the clause said pro-abortion
rights lawmakers had no right to require taxpayers
to subsidize the abortions of federal employees.

The abortion ban was part of a bill appropriat-
ing $23.5 billion in fiscal 1997 to operate the IRS,
the Treasury Department, the White House, the
Federal Elections Commission, Office of Person-
nel Management, General Services Administra-
tion and other agencies.


WASHINGTON -— A government laborato-
ry’s plans to buy a Japanese supercomputer could
harm Cray Research Inc., the chief U.S. manufac—
turer of the high-speed equipment, a federal com-
mission decided yesterday.

The 3-1 decision by the International Trade
Commission allows the Commerce Department
to proceed with an anti-dumpin case against
Japan’s NEC Corp., which won 3 id this spring
to supply supercomputers to a Colorado— ased
climate laboratory.

Cra , based in Eagan, Minn., claims that NEC
offere four of the computers for the cost of one
to get a foothold in the U.S. market.

NEC denies that the e uipment was priced
below cost and has asked t e ITC to drop the
dum ing case.

T e Commerce Department is to issue a deci—
sion byJan. 6, I997.

The department could impose stiff tariffs on
the Japanese supercomputers if it concludes the
computers were priced too low.

Lezell Lowe
Enjoying individuality in all people

By Lindsay Hendrix

Features Editor

After learning of Lezell Lowe’s
long list of extracurricular activi-
ties, it's hard to imagine that he
has time to be a student.

Lowe said his role as the multi-
cultural chairman of the Student
Activities Board is one of the most
important leadership roles he has

“When you come to UK, it
should be diversity all around,”
Lowe said.

“You don’t necessarily have to
like it, but just as long as you
know about it, that’s important.”

Enjoying variety in people is
the same reason his fraternity, Phi
Beta Sigma, has won the Out-
standing Organization Award two
years in a row.

“Individuality supersedes
everything else,” Lowe said of Phi
Beta Sigma’s membership.

“That’s one thing we encour—
age of our members —— to branch

off, be unique.”

Lowe said this quality is what
makes Phi Beta Sigma so different
from the other Greek organiza-

It strives to collect people of
different beliefs, majors and indi—
vidual strengths and weaknesses.

“Everyone brin something
different to the tab e in Phi Beta
Sigma,” he said.

“Every time you sit
down to a meeting,
everyone has an idea
and we don’t all think

Although the fra-
ternity looks for indi-
viduality, all members

should have the desire "I V




become involved in.
Lowe has a preference for
working with troubled youths.

Since he began the Americorps
program at the end of August,
Lowe has learned the rewards, as
well as the hardships, of working
with young boys.

Through Americorps, Lowe
works with the sixth-, seventh-
and eighth-graders at
Leestown Middle
School, attempting to
create a positive influ-
ence in their often trou—
bled lives.

“My goal is to help

munity service, then we have no
problem with you,” Lowe said.
Phi Beta Sigma doesn’t worry
about what type of volunteer ser-
vice the members choose to

Lowe does not have impractical
expectations. He just wants to
become a role model for some of
his students at Leestown.

If he succeeds, he will always


emphasize the importance of edu-
cation to them.

Growing up in the small Ken-
tucky town of Harlan, Lowe
learned quickly the importance of
going to college.

After spending his first year of
college in Louisville, his home-
town, Lowe received a scholarship
to UK.

Lowe plans to attend law
school one day, but he wants to
remain flexible as far as his future
is concemed.

“I’m learning to keep all of my
options open,” Lowe said.

However, there is one area he
will not compromise on.

“I want to be a positive impact
on people’s lives. I strive to do
that every day.”
