Tuition increase topic
of Monday’s hearing

Executive Editor

The Kentucky Council on Higher
Education will hold a public hearing
at UK on Monday to discuss a pro-
posed mid-year tuition increase.

If the tuition-increase proposal
were enacted. students would be re-
quired to pay $10 more in tuition
next semester. UK students current-
ly pay $706 a semester. a 4 percent
increase that resulted from last
year‘s tuition raise by CHE.

The hearing is the first of three
scheduled in the state to gather stu-
dent input on the issue. Other hear-
ings are scheduled for Western Ken-
tucky University on Sept. 24 and
Ashland Community College on
Sept. 28.

The tuition proposal is in response
to a projected $8.8 million shortfall
in the state’s budget for higher edu-
cation. The tuition-increase proposal
would recover $1.1 million of the
projected budget cuts.

Groups from UK. Eastern Ken-
tucky University and Kentucky
State University are expected to at-
tend the hearing. which begins at 2

pm. in the Worsham Theatre, lo-
cated in the Student Center.

Terry McBrayer. vice-chairman of
the CHE finance committee. will
open the hearing with a brief state-
ment. University presidents followed
by student government presidents
will then be allowed to speak.

Any student who wants to voice an
opinion will also be allowed to

UK President David Roselle will
present UK's position on the tuition
proposal at the hearing. Ed Carter,
vice president for administration.
said the administration opposes the
increase proposal because students
can't make the financial adjustment
in the middle of the year.

In addition to the tuition-increase
proposal, the hearing will address a
proposal to change the way tuition is

Tuition is now set in two ways by
the CHE — a comparison with tu-
ition at other benchmark institutions
and by examining the state's per ca-
pita income. Currently. tuition rates
are examined every two years by
the council.

David Holton, CHE student rep-
resentative. said a mid-year tuition

increase would be “unprecedented."
and "potentially very devastating to

Holton. who is a UK law student.
said an increase would send a neg-
ative signal to the legislature in

Legislators might think that state
funding for higher education would
no longer be needed, he said.

tives in this region agree.

Couple discusses times in Vietnam

said Lucille Boyd in a question-and-
answer period after a slide show
presented yesterday by the Council
on Aging.

Mrs. Boyd and her husband. Rob-

Boyd, a former director at Lexing-

Associate Editor

Ron Sanders. Republican nominee
for Kentucky secretary of state. is
wondering when Kentuckians are
going to get excited about the situa-
tion the state is in.

Kentucky has some of the “best
workers in the world," the Madison-
ville businessman said. but the
state‘s economic situation is one of
the worst in the nation.

“When are we going to get excited
about the situation this state is in,"
Sanders told about 45 people in 228
Student Center last night. most of
them members of the UK College

One of the reasons the state is in
such poor economic shape is be-
cause "we have had the same party
(Democratic) in total control for the
last 16 years.“ Sanders said.

“We’re losing ground because of
them.“he said.

Sanders. president of Emerald En—
ergy Corp. said he could be making
more money running his company
instead of running for political of-

“I could be very comfortable run-
ning my business rather than being
out on the road adding premature
gray hairs to my head.“ he said.

What made him decide to run for
secretary of state. Sanders said. was
that the state has had too many self-
serving officials in Frankfort in-
stead of statesmen.

“For too long we‘ve had people
saying. ‘What can politics do for
me?‘ “hesaid.

Although Kentucky‘s secretary of
state does not have the power or ju-
risdiction of some higher state exec-
utive offices. Sanders said there are

The United States contributed by
sending in typewriters to help mod-
ernize the education program as
well as the team that Boyd was on.
That team and Boyd‘s wife jour-
neyed to Southeast Asia.

Mrs. Boyd gained teaching experi-
ence from 21 Georgian military
school and 3 Lexington elementary

The Boyds began their two-year
Southeast Asian teaching experience
in 1969. At first. the couple was sep-
arated from one another. Boyd went
to Vietnam and his wife went to Ku«
lalumpur. Malaysia. where she
taught high school for H months.

She described her experience as
frustrating because she only saw her
husband about once a month.

She taught school in a shack in the
edge of the jungle. Her students
would go on rattlesnake and cobra


several things he can do to improve
the state's condition.

Kentucky‘s political system. he
said. is only open to insiders or the
wealthy. In order to make it “fair
for everyone." Sanders said an open
primary needs to be implemented.

Kentucky‘s poor business climate
also needs to be improved. he said.
including making Frankfort an envi-
ronment of “pro-business . “

“Too many of our skilled workers
are leaving the state and what we're
left with is high school drop outs.“
he said.

There also needs to be more lf‘lBl.
in state government. Sanders said.
and the only way that can be done is
by putting people in office who rep-
resent the same moral standards he
does — honesty and hard work.

“I can promise you three things if
I‘m elected,“ he said. “I won‘t tell
you any lies. I will not steal from
you and I will work hard."

Sanders‘ opponent in the fall elec-
tion is former Jefferson County
Judge/ Executive Brehmer Ehrler,

“If I didn‘t think i had a long shot
I wouldn‘t be in this race." Sanders
said. “I think (Ehrlerl is a nice
fella. but I think he ought to be sit-
ting out in his boat fishing rather
than running for secretary of state."

safaries for the weekend. She said
she had fears they would not return.

Mrs. Boyd said she was harassed
on her way home from school one
night by a Vietnamese because she
was an American woman. She de»
scribed Malaysia as “very hot“ and
said she got sick one evening from

But the situation got better. Mrs.
Boyd said she lived a plush life
which helped ease her frustrations.

“Kuala Lumpur is the fastest
growing city in the world." the tea-
cher said. “The Malades may own
it. but the Chinese run it."

She described the Malades as re-
served and the Chinese as very
friendly and willing to learn.

Boyd didn‘t describe his beginning
experience as a pleasurable one. He
said he heard gunfire every night
but knew he was in no harm.

Fraternities gain pledges, patr

Frats have
banner rush

Staff Writer

UK's 23 fraternities have reported
a banner year for rush as many fra-
ternities doubled the number of
pledges over last year.

About 3,000 students participated
in the nish. which was held Aug. 24—
30. said Bob Dunn, president of the
Interfraterni ty Council.

“In my opinion and everyone‘s,
I'lBh went really well. The people
that were coming through were real-
ly high (on the greek systemi,”

IFC vice president Chris Chase
said nah was a learning experience
for freshmen.

“Freshmen learned that they real-
ly can benefit from joining a frater-
nity. They found that they can get
more from their college experience
if they go greek," he said.

Although some houses did not ex-
perience an increase in numbers.
most did. according to the fraternity
system‘s governing board, the IFC.
Many houses averaged around 25-30
pledges attheend of rish.

Dunn attributes the rise in nishees
primarily to a few new procedures
enacted this semester.

A colored nish brochure which the
IFC sent during the summer to all
incoming freshmen was a major
reason for increased numbers in ru-
shees. Dunn said the brochure con-
sisted of a fraternity row map and
stressed scholorship, brotherhood,
community service. athletics and
leadership. made the incoming
freshmen more aware of the greek
system and also helped to dispel the
“animal home" image.

come a label somewhat. One of the
main objects of the brochure pointed
out the other aspects. We tried to
stress community service. brother-
hood and athletics. he said. adding.
“ I think we were successful in
doing so."

Dunn said the first annual Casino
night. held Aug. 23. (the night before
rush started). was another major
factor in attracting freshmen.

Each fraternity had their own
gambling table. Blackjack. poker
and craps table were common
sights. The event drew a standing-
room only crowd in the Student Cen~
ter Ballroom.

Chase. who also coordinated the

This year‘s rush was the first time
freshmen were required to pay a
pre—registration fee. A potential ru-
shee had to pay a $10 registration
fee prior to nah week. If an individ-
ual decided to enter nah late. a $15
fee was required after rush.

This was a catalyst in helping
freshmen deciding for or against the
greek system. Dunn said. “If you
have a fee to send in. then you have
to make a decision.“ Dunn said.
Around 300 freshmen registered to

I would like to take this oppor-
tunity to encourage students, par-
ents and other interested parties
In the future of higher education
in Kentucky to attend a public
hearing on potential increases in
tuition rates. A hearing will be
held at 2 pm. Sept. 21 in the
Worsham Theater in the Student
Center addition on UK‘s campus.

Members of the Council’s fi-
nance committee will be in atten-
dance to hear the comments of
interested parties on two impor-
tant issues: a potential increase
in tuition for the 1988 spring se-
mester; and potentially revising
the Council‘s current tuition-set-
ting policy for the next two years.
Due to state budget cuts in higher
education '5 appropriations ($9.4

million in operating funds in this
year), the Council is considering
increasing tuition substantially to
offset these reductions.

The Council on Higher Educa-
tion is directed by statute to es
tablish tuition rates for Ken-
tucky '5 public community
colleges and universities.

The current tuition setting pro-
vides for the maintenance of tu-
ition levels for Kentucky resi~
dents at a reasonable percentage
of per capita personal income.
This policy has enabled the Coun-
cil to keep tuition relatively low
and affordable for Kentuckians.
There is the potential that this
policy may be abandoned.

Final decisions concerning the
tuition rates and policy will be
made at a future meeting of the
Council‘s finance committee.
These hearings and your partici-
pation will play an important
part in that decision-making
process. Therefore, I encourage
everyone interested in this issue
and the furthering of quality
higher education in Kentucky to
attend this hearing.

David L. Holton II is the stu-

cil on Higher Education.
