Volunteers bring a splash of good cheer to
patients at annual Valentine's Day party

By Richard Cook

Sitting alone in a hospital
bed with tubes connecting you to
strange machines that make
strange noises can be disheart-
ening for anyone especially if
you‘re a child.

That’s why the Lexington
Dream Factory visited the UK
Children‘s Hospital yesterday to
host their annual Valentine‘s
Day party for the children in the
hospital ward.

“They came the first year
and said as they were leaving
that they‘d be back next year."
said Mary Kana. a child life spe-

cialist at the hospital.

Students disagree on
the effect coed system
would have on campus



By Pat Clem

Assnnfihrws EDITOR

Forget about gay fraternities
for a minute. What about coed so-
cial fraternities? That’s exactly
what Dartmouth College in
Hanover. Nil. has done.

Officials at the college an-
nounced a plan earlier this week
to abolish sainesex fraternities
and sororities to give students
more choices in living arrange
ments. to cut the number of stu-
dents who live off campus. to re-
duce alcohol abuse and to encour-
age “respectful relations between
women and men." said James
Wright. the college's president.

But the new policy is drawing
the criticism of students , and
not just the ones at Dartmouth.

“That's promoting sex. not
brotherhood and sisterhood."
said Melissa Thompson. an unde-
clared sophomore and member of
Pi Beta Phi at UK.

Some fraternity members
didn't seem to mind the idea.
though. Josh Ives. an architec~
ture freshmen and member of
Lambda (,‘hi. joked that there
should be a “new rule" that says
all members will participate in
“group showers."

The idea of a coed Greek or»
ganization seemed like a hidden
agenda to many.

“I think that's just a cover~up
for trying to get rid of fraterni-
ties." said Todd Wallace. a jour~
ualism sophomore and vice presi-
dent of Programming for Sigma
Phi Epsilon.

But many students were less
optimistic about the proposition.

“It would end Greek life as we
know it." said Kevin Pierce. a me»
chanical engineering senior and
member of Alpha Tau (lmega.

Most of the fraternities and
sororities on campus are nation-
ally based. and letting in mom»
ht-rs of another sex wouldn‘t be
permitted by the bylaws of the
national organization.

“Our national sorority pro
hibits us from being coed. said
Jessica l’erla. a biology senior
and member of Sigma Kappa. "I
don't think a guy could keep up
with all the activities Wt‘ have to
go to anyway."

Others were worried about
messing with the system.

“We‘ve been at UK since
1909." said Pat Farnan. a market-
ing management senior and mem-
ber of AT(). “That‘s 130 years of

The plan is not going over
well at Dartmouth either.

“(Wrightl betrayed us." said
lirad Bingham. a Dartmouth stu»
dent and member of Alpha Delta.
which along with other fraterni-
ties at Dartmouth inspired the
movie Animal House.

“I know of no modern-day
fraternity or sorority who has al-
lowed anyone in of another gen-
der." said Ben Lewis. a Dart-
mouth student and spokesman
for Sigma Alpha Epsilon.

Students at the college are or-
ganizing protests and aligning
the support of alumni to fight the
decision. For 17K. though no such
decision looks plausible.

“There is nothing on the
horizon at 17K to lead to (coed or-
ganizations)." said Dean of Stu-
dents David Stockham, ”Certain
ly. our effort has been to strength-
en the Greek system. not do away
with it."

Bomb threat forces evacuation

FORT KNOX ~ A bomb threat at Ire-
land Community Hospital forced the evacu-
ation of patients and employees for several
hours Wednesday.

Military police and dogs searched the
hospital at the Army post but found nothing
out of the ordinary, a post spokesman said.
About 1,500 people, including patients and
hospital staff, were taken to nearby Sadowski
Field House after the bomb threat was called
in around 7:30 am. They were allowed back
into the hospital four hours later.

“Surprisingly, it’s back to normal," hos-
pital spokeswoman Sandra Anderson said.

Hospital officials said the threat came
from a male voice who warned that a bomb
was set to go off right away. About 25 pa-
tients who were admitted to the hospital
were evacuated within 15 minutes, some
still bedridden.

Dickey one of 60 to receive $500,000 grant over

UK continued the march to-
ward becoming a top 20 research
institution in the nation by receiv-
ing a prestigious award for it's
achievements in the field of mate-
rials engineering.

This one, though, came
straight from the White House.

Elizabeth Dickey, Professor of
Materials Science and Engineer-
ing at UK, received the Presiden-
tial Early Career Award for Scien-
tists and Engineers at a ceremony
held Wednesday in Washington.

The award includes a grant of
$500000 spread over five years and
will fund her project on Interfacial
Phenomenon in Composite Mate-
rials. Established by President Bill
Clinton in 1996. this year’s awards
recognized research by 60 young
scientists and engineers from
across the country that helps sup-
port government missions.

“My research focused on
atomic scale analysis between dis-
similar materials and bonding
across interfaces," Dickey said.
“(The grant) is for graduate stu-
dent support for a research project
for the Department of Defense."

One application of Dickey's re-
search would be to reinforce ce~
ramics with other materials to
make them suitable for high tem-
perature applications. such as air-

craft engines.

Dickey was already involved
in a $4 million project involving
eight UK faculty members from
various disciplines to manufac-
ture carbon nanotubes. Extremely
strong and small in size, carbon
nanotubes have broad applica-
tions that range from microchips
to aircraft design.

“This is wonderful news for
the department," said Eric Grulke,
chairperson of the Department of
Chemical and Materials Engineer-

“We are benefiting from the
Research Challenge Trust Fund
and hope this is an indication of
what we can do in the future.”

The Materials Research Sci-
ence and Engineering Center is
only one of 24 centers in the coun-
try funded by the National Science
Foundation, Grulke said. The cen-
ter focused on advanced carbon
materials, such as the carbon nan-

According to the White House,

Behind all this comfort lies
Sandra Cairo.

Cairo is the program coor-
dinator for the center, bringing
to campus exhibits, films and
presentations that celebrate
black culture and history.

As an educator, Cairo’s
main focus is, as she puts it, “to
teach people about life, with all
its beauty and its ugliness."

Cairo discovered the avail-
able position through acquain‘
tance Chester Grundy, director

of African-American Student
Affairs. She took the job and
began studying anthropology
while at UK.

She had been working in
the area as a dancer and dance
instructor in Lexington for
eight years before accepting the

She said that the job at the
center was a great way to do
cultural work in an environ-

center. But as Cairo will admit,
her passion has always been

with Urban Bush Women, a
company that performed on
campus last year. And she has

Cairo works with the
AFAMBA Cultural Arts Orga-
nization. which works to pro
mote cultural programming in
the community.

She also teaches African
dance classes at area dance stu-
dios and is working on adding
an African dance class to UK‘s

In honor of Black History
Month, Cairo coordinated “Art
for us by us," “an exploratory
journey of the arts” to celebrate
“50 years of African-Americans
at UK.’

The first event was a dance
and creative movement work-
shop taught by Cairo tonight
last week.

The next workshops deal
with the arts of drama, visual
art, creative writing and story-
telling. These workshops will

take place later in the month.

Cairo said the arts are a
great way to teach and to learn.

“The arts are the best medi-
um“ to explore your feelings
about culture and life, she said.
“Sometimes I don’t want to talk
about it. but I can dance about
it or I can draw about it or 1 can
write about it."

Cairo has earned much stu~
dent support for her work with
the center.

“She has a clear vision of
what the center should be
about." said Denise Brown, a
journalism and art studio

And what should the center
be about? Chris Greenwell, a
computer graphics junior, said
the idea is “not just to invite
African-American students in
here, but to unite all the people
in the community."

Brown called the center a
“neutral meeting ground" for
people of all cultures.

The students said Cairo has
taught them to respect and val-
ue black history.

“It's not just black history,
it's American history,“ Green-
well said.

While 'da Singer (played by Debra
Byrd) laments of old times, ‘da Voice
(Thomas Silcott) asserts his selfish atti-
tude: “And I don’t care / ‘Bout shit / Ain't
gone git no AIDS / But I'm gonna / Keep
gettin‘ paid / Harlem ain‘t / Never/
Gonna change."

Three things combined to make this
show astonishing: Byrd’s radiant and an-
gelic voice (her voice was similar to
Aretha Franklin‘s, though she could blow
Franklin away!), the feverish tap dances
and the well-placed slapstick comedy.

The embodiment of black culture. his-
tory, rhythm and dance opened to an
eclectic and warm, not to mention sold-
out audience, whose screams of awe and
wonder and an instant standing ovation
guarantee the message was clear: spread
'da noise and ‘da funk.

Remaining performances include Fri-
day, Saturday and Sunday nights. includ-
ing matinee performances on Saturday
and Sunday.

Tickets range from $32.50 to $58.50.
