State reports revenue receipts up

Increase may mean Ky. can forgo another budget cut


By Mark R. Chellgren
Associated Press

FRANKFURT, Ky. — Unusually
large revenue receipts for January
helped pump up a flagging state
General Fund and buoy hopes the
state may be able to get through the
year without a budget cutback.

According to figures released yes-
terday from the Finance Cabinet,
the General Fund took in $464.4
million in January. a 15.8 percent
increase over the same month a year
ago. The big jump dramatically im-
proved the status of the General
Fund for the year.

deferred rush

A committee of the Interfratemi-

that would eliminate fall rush and
replace it with a “deferred rush."
1F(‘ president Michael Wainscott

Under the plan, which still is be-
ing studied by 1F(“s rush revision
committee. incoming freshmen in-
terested in fratemity life would
have to wait until the spring semes-
ter to participate in rush.

Wainscott said considerations for
a deferred rush were brought about
because the number of students
who participate in spring rush has
been declining while a larger num-
ber of students participate in the

“Right now. we are just trying to
figure out what way will be the
most efficient for 17K.“ Wainscott

He also said a deferred-rush.pro-
grant could result in better grade-
point averages for fratemity pledge
classes because freshmen wouldn't
have the distraction of pledging
during their first semester on cam-

“With the deferred rush. people
might have a better chance to get
adapted to school, and maybe that
will (raise) their grades." Wainscott

Sigma Pi president Brian Stewart
said he favored the deferred rush
program because of current prob-
lems with the academic success of
freshman pledge classes.

"lf frestuncn have the time to get
better adjusted to college life. then
they will be more able to handle be-
ing in a fratemity." Stewart said.

He also said Georgetown College
and Miami (Ohio) University have
been successful in adopting de-
ferred-rush programs.

Through December. the General

The entire General Fund must

and take in $4.524 billion to meet

Finance Secretary Pat Mulloy
said January receipts were up be-
cause of an improving economy and
good holiday sales figures. Decem—
ber‘s sales tax receipts in stores are
generally shown in January state
revenue receipts.

The state‘s 6-percent sales tax
brought in $161 million in January,
a 14 percent increase from the pre-
vious year when Kentucky had
barely begun to shake off the effects
of the recession.

Mulloy also credited some unusu-
al items for the improvement. Indi-
vidual income tax receipts. which
had been lagging badly all year.

jumped by 25 percent in Jzutuary.
Mulloy said processing problems
pushed some December collections
into Janiuary.

“We remain cautiously optimistic
that the state's revenue shortfalls
are manageable.“ Mulloy said.

State agencies have been ordered
to hold 2 percent of their budgets
for the year in anticipation of reve-
nue shortfalls.

In addition. Gov. Brcreton Jones
has raised the possibility of holding
tax refunds beyond the June 30 end
of the fiscal year if money is short.

l.os Angeles could see a repeat of
last year‘s race riots if people don‘t

from diverse backgrounds. 3 Cali-
fomia educator said last night.

“The LA riots are over. but there
will be others if we don't leam
from our mistakes and teach young
people the importance of diversity."
said Phillip Chino. director of the
Center for Multicultural Education
at (‘alifomia State University.

(‘hinn spoke last night for an
hour to a crowd of about 80 at the
Taylor liducation Building.

Educators have a responsibility to
their students to develop education-
al programs that teach young peo»
ple the importance of being open
and sensitive to different cultures
and ethnic experiences. Chinn said.

“Diversity is here. like it or not.
and we have to look at diversity as
a blessing. not a curse. to see how it
enriches our community." he said.

as an example of insensitivity and

Senate unanimously passes ethics-reform bill

FRANKFURT. Ky. —~ The Sen-
ate unanimously passed an ethics

ing a provision to bar legklators
convicted of misusing their office
from receiving govemment pension

Sen. Walter Baker. 3 Glasgow
Republican who has become one of
the General Assembly‘s elder
statesmen. said the legislation
should prove a milestone but also
defended the integrity of the institu-

“We have much greater responsi-
bility. We have much greater con-

“And we have. not withstanding

Baker said.

But another
warned of the
danger of

ethics and said legislators should
not forget the reason for the public
sentiment for passage of a code of
conduct for lawmakers.

“While it was the FBI that gave
Kentucky a wake-up call. it is now
the people of Kentucky who have
got the alarm still ringing." said
Sen. Tim Philpot of Lexington.

The passage of a pmviskm to bar




legislators from receiving any gov-
ernment pension if they are con-
victed of a crime involving their
conduct in office reversed a move
from the Senate State Govcmment

Sen. Mike Moloney (l)-
l.exington) said many in the public
were outraged to learn that state of-
ficials convicted of wrongdoing in
office were able to save their gov-
ernment pensions by resigning be-
fore thcy were convicted or plead-
ed guilty.

“We need to send a very. very
strong message." Moloney said.
"You're going to lose what the tax.
payers put in for your future. and
you should.“

The section would let officehold-
ers still retain what they contribut-
ed to their pensions.

Another change adopted by the
Senate demonstrated the apparent

lack of partisanship.

Republicans won a provision that
would allow political campaign
contributions of less than $200 to

Feminist perspective searches for definition


By Angela Jones

()n a conservative campus such
as UK. feminist scholarship easily
could be lost in the shuffle.

And. in a sense. the University's
feminist entity. the Women's Stud-
ies Progrtun. is struggling with the

"We have to identify ourselves as
a group in some way" to have an
impact. said Jo lillen Green Kaiser.
an linglish professor who teaches
courses in the program.

Kaiser has organized a forum to
be held Sunday from 4 to 6 pm. at
the Gaines (‘enter for Humanities
for faculty. staff zmd students who
identify themselves as feminists.
The forum is intended to open dis-
cussion on the progrzun‘s goals.

Operated chiefly by volunteers at

the University with no official
funding, the Women‘s Studies Pro-
gram still is struggling with the ba-
sics — offering classes that focus
on gender issues, Kaiser said.

With the varied perspectives
within feminism. however. the
question of how these classes
should be taught must be decided to
have any impact on their students.
she said.

“The process of what classes
should be taught and who should
teach them are too vague. too
scattered." she said. “Should the
program be an academic one. a so-
cial one or a political one?"

Linda Worley. a Gennan profes-
sor who is teaching a women stud-
ies course this semester. said per-
sonal politics can not be avoided.

"livery professor in every subject
has a stance. There’s always sub-
jectivity." she said.

Alpha Xi Delta had the worst-

Meadors said that members of
Alpha Xi Delta have mandatory
study hours based on GPA. If a
member falls below the minimum
average. she faces academic proba-
tion and 12 study hours a week.

"With all the activities we‘re in-
volved in. it is a difficult responsi-
bility to balance all that and keep

up our GPA.“ Meadors said.

The figures also showed:

rority pledge average with a 2.990

with a pledge average of 2.938.

Worley said she is aware that
many students may be intimidated
by the assumed feminist perspective
in these courses but does not see be-
ing feminists as a requirement for
her students.

“The last thing I would want is
for a student to feel like he or she
would have to pass some kind of
feminist litmus test." Worley said.

In the two academic papers Kai-
ser asked Sunday's participants to
read. however, one scholar recog-
nizes that many students new to
feminism are immediately excluded
by its leamed advocates.

"I'm aware of that danger and
emphasire that one of the ground
rules is tolerance of all perspec-
tives." Worley said.

But Kaiser contends that if the
Women‘s Studies Program is going

to teach from a perspective unique
to other UK courses. “some ideas
have to be excluded. whatever they
may be."

“We can't be everything to eve-
rybody." she said.

Parker Benton. an linglish senior
who has taken women's studies
courses. said he has never felt ex-

"I don‘t think certain students are
excluded. They are so apathetic to
other perspectives that they don't
even know about the courses." he

Kaiser stressed that no agenda
has been designed for Sunday‘s for-
um cxcept to discuss the vzu'ying
concems and perspectives that the
feminists present want to raise.

“We have to find a ground of

RAD program now
offered at University


By Scarlett Conealvi
Contributing Writer

An extensive and innovative rape
prevention class now is being of-
fered by the UK Police Deparunent.

The class. called Rape Aggres-
sion Defense Systems. is pan of a
nationwide program designed only
for women. it teaches realistic self-
defcnse tactics and techniques. as
well as rape awareness and avoid-
ance. said Stephanie Bastin, a crime
prevention specialist with the police

Bastin researched various pro-
grams before deciding that the
RAD program best suited the Uni-
versity. She said it was selected
over other programs because the
tactics taught are both easy and ef-

()ne section of the 12-hour course
focuses on simulation of actual at-
tacks to demonstrate defense skills
that a woman of average strength
can use to evade an attacker. The
course also teaches women to deal
with date rape and attackers who
are under the influence of drugs.

All participants are required to
sign a wavier before beginning the
class because the physical contact
involved in the self-defense compo-
nent usually produces some bruises.

Bastin said.

Instructors and students are pro-
vided with protective gear.

UK‘s instructors for the class, po-
lice officers llolly Davis and Tim
Mallory, recently completed a one-
week training session in Knoxville.
Tenn. They currently are the only
certified RAD instructors in the

Davis said she doesn't think the
UK campus is panicularly unsafe,
but she encourages students to par-
ticipate in the RAD program as a
“preventative measure."

RAD courses. which are free for
UK students, faculty and staff, cur-
rently are offered from 4 to 7 pm.
and 8 to 11 pm. Sessions last three
hours each night and run for four
consecutive nights. Altemate times
may be scheduled for groups.

Some sessions already are full. so
advance registration is recommend-
ed. Bastin said.

UK hopes to make the program
available to the general public by
January 1994.
