Hazing is any situation created
0 l or offcampus with the intent to
l' imiliate new members, said
I‘avid \Vestol, executive director
o'Theta Chi social fraternity.

“People say the definition is too
I 'oad,” \"estol said, “but the deli-
rtion is clear as bell."

About 70 people attended
\Vestol's lecture, “Hazing on
'I rial," yesterday in \Vorsham
'l heater. The meeting, which was
sponsored by the UK greek com-
n unity, was intended inform UK’s
fraternities and sororities about
tl e specifics of hazing.

“About 10 to 15 percent of peo-
p e in organizations are hazers,”
\g‘u’estol said. “Those people prob-
ably aren’t here.”

Westol said that that hazing is
o ten cloaked in secrecy, because if
fiaternities told pled es about the
hizing that goes on t ey wouldn't

He suggested that fraternities
p it hazing on their brochures and

work to get into the fraternity.
\Vestol said the correct think-
ing is that members have to work
to stay in the fraternity, and that
pledges and actives should work
together in proportional amounts.
“It is a lazy chapter that relies
on hazing,” Westol said. “It is not
in the ritual that seniors don’t
have to work as hard as pledges."


Although not all hazing is not
life—threatening, all hazing leads to
other hazing and can lead to life—
threatening problems.

Westol told the audience a
story about a hypothetical pled re
in a hypothetical fraternity. T e
story followed a pledge through
the pledging process to Hell \Veek

— “The orgasm of hazing,"


Also the concept of

“Pledging is a dying practice,"
Westol said. Fraternities are mov-

“The word pledge used to be a

ternity and sorority language,
pledge is a noun."


“If you believe in hazing,“
Westol said. “You are a coward

The instances of hazing that

“This was my pledging, my

who is in charge of name distribu—

Friday’s kickoff was emceed by
UK spokesman Carl Nathe, who

Chancellor for the Lexington
Campus Elisabeth Zinser also
attended and performed her own
play with inarionettes.

“She did a really wonderful

The names of the children are
received from counselors and
family resource centers in the
Fayette County Schools.

Those who wish to participate


they are turned in at 206 Student

distributed to the families.

“It is really good to see the

said Barbara Coughlin, co—chair
of the campaign. “It's incredible.”

Participation in the campaign

UK expert aiding
Michigan schools

By Mara Spaldlnu

( mn-ilmri'ng II ’n'm'

Students and faculty at UK are working closely
w ith Michigan State University to desi a new mar-
k :t-based school system for the state 0 Michi n.

Eugenia Toma, director of UK’s Martin Sciaool of
I ublic Policy and Administration, was chosen by the
Michigan Board of Education to be the director of
research for this project.

Toma, who has a bachelor of arts in economics
fi om UK and a doctorate in economics from Virginia

Pol echnic Institute, was chosen because they were
loo 'ng for someone with her type of background.
The board of education is interested in structural
reforms as opposed to specific techniques of teach-

Michigan State received a grant for this project
which was then subcontracted to Toma.

The project is titled “A New Framework for Pub—
lic Education in Michigan.”

The team, includin seven students and faculty
members, will be in t e project by evaluating the
effectiveness of ichigan’s current K-12 education
system. Then, they will develop a new model that
allows competition. The goal will be to adopt tech-
niques suitable for both the students and their fami-

“We do not expect it to be similar to KERA,"
Toma said.

For example, programs such as the ungraded pri—

tnary system will not be included.

It will focus more on the aspects of school con~
cerning who is able to make important decisions for
the schools and how the finances for these changes
will be covered.

“In its call for proposals, the Michi an Board of
Education invited innovative changes,” Toma said.

More specific infonnation on the project will be
available in May orJune of 1996.

Toma has been at UK since 1986 and has been the
director of the Martin School since January I995.

The Martin School is a multi-disciplinary pro-
gram that consists of three different 5 of pro-
grams. It offers a master's degree in pu ic adnunis—
tration, a doctorate in public administration and a
master's in health administration.

Earlier this year, it was ranked 27th among 223

Shutdown over
alter new agreement

WASHINGTON — The Clinton administra-
tion and Republican congressional leaders ended a
six—day budget standoff Sunday night, sending fed-
eral employees back to work after the White House
committed to speedy negotiations to balance the
budget in seven years.

“Tomorrow the government
will go back to work and now the
debate will begin in earnest." Presi-
dent Clinton said, appearing in the
White House press room shortly
after the deal was announced.

By voice votes, the Senate and
House adopted identical one-day
measures to reopen the govern-
ment. The Senate also approved a
bill funding the government
through Dec. 15 and the House planned to follow
on Monday.

Both sides declared victory —— Republicans
because the deal reflected their seven—year
timetable and Clinton because it spoke of protect~
ing programs he considers important.

There was standing room
only at the Lexington Ice Cen-
