Counseling Center educating alcohol abusers

Contributing Writer

UK's Counseling and Testing
Center is working with state courts
to educate dntnken-driving offend-
ers on the hazards of drinking and

The center offers a drug and alco-
hol education program in which
first-time DUI offenders can partici-
pate as a part of their sentence. It is
the only university-based program
of its kind in the state.

Ray Larson. Commonwealth at-
torney, said that all first-time DUI
offenders have the opportunity to
reduce their driver’s license suspen-
sion from six months to 30 days by
completing a state-certified alcohol

offering test
on marriage

Staff Writer

A test designed for couples who
are engaged or seriously consider-
ing marriage is now being offered
by the Family Studies Student As-

The test, called PREParation for
Marriage, deals with topics that
couples can use in evaluating their
compatibility and readiness for mar-

Individuals also are encouraged
to use the test to judge their feelings
about marriage and commitment.

“As an individual, it allows you
to see how you fit into the norms,
allows you to see if you yourself
are ready for marriage," said Mar-
tha Slemp, president of FSSA. “If
you take it as a couple, you can see
if you two are compatible.”

The PREP-M is a questionnaire
that the couple fills out separately.
The answers are analyzed by a corn-
puter, and the graphs, correspond-
ing answers from the answer sheet
and a booklet explaining the results
are returned to the individual or

Slemp said the test was offered
last semester within the College of
Home Economics (now the College
of Environmental Sciences), and
participants found it so helpful that
FSSA decided to offer it campus-

“We never really had a project to
give to the students and community,
and we also wanted a fund-raiser,”
she said.

The PREP-M questionnaire book-
lets and answer sheets will be sold
Wednesday and Thursday at the
Student Center and Erikson Hall
from 9 am. to 4:30 pm.

The cost is $5 per person or $8
per couple.

The results will be given April 3
at 3:30 pm. in 316 Funkhouser
Building; April 4 at 7:30 pm. at
Funkhouser; or by appointment dur-
ing the week of April 1-5.

For an appointment, please call

In addition, the bus has lock-

nearly three decades.

After State’s 83-82 victory Satur-
day over No. 10 _ .

Kentucky, the .. ~

chance to win their first league title
since 1963. That's also the only year
State has ever gone to the NCAA

And Saturday’s victory lifted
State within a half-game of the SEC
lead with four games left in the reg-

coach Rick Pitino, locked up an
NCAA invitation for the Bulldogs.

UK dropped to 9-3 in the confer-
ence and 17—5 overall.

“We played as sman a basketball
