Students being
warned about
campus safety

By Mat Herron

Campus Editor

lt could be anyone, at anytime,
in any place.

Resident advisers are now wam-
ing students to play it safe in light
of rumored sexual assaults that may
have occurred on South Campus.

The subject of sexual assaults
on campus was touched on at a
tneetin this past Sunday and RAs
are tel ing residents to not view
the alleged sexual assaults as the
fault of one person.

“They don‘t want anybody to
think it's just one person, because
it's too easy to think that," said
Shonda Canada, a resident adviser
in Kirwan Tower.

Canada said she was told there
have been two confirmed sexual
assaults, one in which the victim
has pressed charges.

But UK officials and both city
and campus police departments
said they do not have any reports
of any sexual assaults on campus.

Joe Schulcr, executive director
of Academic Affairs for the Stu-
dent Government Association,
said he has taken numerous phone
calls from and met with RAs who
think the assaults are happening.

“VVe‘ve had three or four (RAs)
in the office, and I’ve talked to at
least a dozen on the phone," Schulcr
said. “The information we‘re getting
is varied but there is a consistent
message that there is a problem.”

For the most part, Schulcr said,
the administration’s silence on the







issue is unnerving.

“\Ve would like to work with
administration and Residence
Life, but they're being so tight—
lipped about it. it‘s hard to work
with anybody that's not telling
you anything," he said. “\Ve
talked to couple of RAs who are
interested in doing some pro-
gramming to try to improve
awareness, to do what we can and
make sure campus is safe in spite
of the administration."

“Something has happened."
Schulcr said. “The RAs are telling
students there have been attacks
on campus and to be careful, but
then you have Res Life saying that
nothing ha pened, and that just
doesn't hol water."

UK officials said if they had proof
that sexual assaults were occurring
they would act on them swiftly.

“The administration has no
reason to hide a rape or any act of
violence on campus. “'e are just
as worried about student safety as
the students are," Dean of Stu»
dents David Stockham said.

“lfthis institution ever believed
there was any reason to send a
warning out to students then we
would, Stockham said. “\Ve
would sound the alarm and circle
the wagons. We would want to
protect our own. we would con-
tact (the media) and anyone else
that could help in the effort.”

Students with information
involving a possible sexual assault

on campus are encouraged to call
the UK Police at 257—1616.

Year 2000. ri

By James Ritchie 0

New Fall'mr

Come the millennium, most of
us will have a little trouble adjust-
ing to writin “00" on our checks
in the blank or the year.

But the problems that arise with
computer systems on New Year‘s
Day 2000 may be much more seri—
ous than a few voided checks.

The year 2000 software prob-
lem results from the use of a two-
digit field to identify years in com—
puter programs (for example,
[997 = 97), and the assumption of
a single millennium, the 1900s.
Software using this concept will
read “00" as the year 1900.

Programs that use dates,
including programs within
machinery such as building securi~
ty systems or climate-control sys—
tems, will fail or malfunction if
these errors are not corrected.

L’K and other computer—
dcpcndent organizations around
the world are working to address
the problem by altering programs.

“In some sense the University
wasn’t napping on this one," said
Rick Chlopan, director of’l‘cchni-
cal Services. “If we had waited to
start on it now, the process would
be spiralin I out ofcontrol. It's pret—
ty much al we're going to be work—
ing on for the next six months."

Planning for the problem began
at the Lexington Campus in 198‘).
About three-frairths of the work is
done, Chlopan said, and the rest
should be completed by the end of
1998. Information Systems will
spend about $750,000 preparing
for the year 2000, he said.

L'K is collaborating with lo
other large L'niversitics who all
buy computer equipment from a



a New





common vendor. In this way, they
can save costs in solving millenni-
um-related problems.

But even if all L'K‘s computer
systems are changed so that they
function properly in the year 2000,
the University still must interact


with the computer systems of other
organizations, such as the federal
and state governments. And if
those systems aren't prepared for
the millennium, UK could feel the
effects, Chlopan said.

Those effects cannot compare

to those the Chandler Medical
Center would experience if its
computer systems were left
untouched. Patients' lives could
be in danger if certain pieces of
biomedical equipment that con—
tain date—sensitive computer chips
fail to function properly.

The Medical Center’s patient
registration and patient account-
ing systems are also susceptible to
the problem, said Zed Day, vice
chancellor for Information Tech-
nology at the Medical Center.

So injune, the Medical Center
hired Louisville firm Keane Inc.
to evaluate its problems and make

One recommendation was to
set up a Year 2000 Project Office,
where efforts will be coordinated.

Medical Center Year 2000 Pro-
ject Leader Sheila Alvey said part
of the purpose of the office is to
make computer users more aware
of the problem.

“They can call and say, ‘Havc
you thought about this?” she said.

Since appointments are some-
times scheduled a year in advance,
she said, problems could arise early.

“\Ve have earlier failure dates
than just that moming," Alvey said,

A rough estimate of the cost of
the project, Day said, is $10 to
$12.5 million, including hardware,
software and labor. It does not
include biomedical equipment,
such as IV pumps and Intensive
Care Unit monitors.

“\Ve need to keep in mind that
it's two years from now," Day said.
“(liven the nature of biomedical
equipment, much of that will be
replaced anyway by the year 2000."

Day said all “mission critical"
systems will be fixed or replaced
before the millennium.

Models use their bodies to dis-
play what they’ve worked on for
countless days and hours.

In the world of science, many
people “model" their minds. And
UK's life sciences put on a show
\Vcdncsday for the entire campus
during the inaugural Life Sciences

Many undergraduates, radu-
ate students, faculty and sta ffrom
all of UK‘s life sciences programs
as well as hi h school students
from Louisville magnet schools
attended the event in the Single—
tary Center for the Arts.

The event started at 8:30 a.m.
with a continental breakfast. Then
john Collier, a professor of
Microbiology and Molecular
Genetics from Harvard Medical
School, presented “Turning Bio-
lo ical Weapons Into Vaccines:
T e Case of Anthrax Toxin," to
more than 200 people in the Con-
cert Hall.

Collicr said it was to be at UK
and participate in Life Sciences
Day and talked about why he was
drawn to research.

“The thrill of discovery keeps
me going," be said.

Collier used slides to talk about
his research in bacterial toxins that
would be used to create new vac-
cines against certain diseases and

After the speech, people walked
throu h the lobbies to see more
than 00 osters made by gradu-

with summaries of research
accompanied by graphs and charts
to give a clearer understanding to
those intrigued.

Art helps patients lind
sunshine in darkness

By Joules Coy
Smfir Wn'm

At age 16, Annick Hollister was
described as being “a postcard
southern California girl.”

But mental illness soon shat-
tered Hollister’s postcard world.

In an attempt to channel feel-
ings of loneliness and despair,
Hollister turned to art. Her paint-
ing “Stairwa from Darkness”
inspired Hoflister’s mother to
found NARSAD Artworks in

NARSAD Artworks is a branch
of the National Alliance for
Research on Schizophrenia and
Depression, and it is completely
operated by volunteers.

NARSAD Artworks is the
nation’s distributor for art created
by people with mental illness. The
organization publishes stationery
adorned with art created by peo-
ple with severe mental illnesses
such as schizophrenia and manic


Profits go to fund research of
mental illnesses. In the past 10
years, NARSAD Artworks has
given $50 million to universities
and medical research' institu—

The art show presents the
works of artists, all of whom show
an abundance of creative skill
despite their mental illness.

“The art show was not
designed to capitalize on mental
illness,” said Ma Isaacs, a board
member for the B uegrass Alliance
for the Mentally Ill.

“These ieces are extensions of
the artist. he show functions to
educate the public about mental
illness, as well as create self—
esteem and provide income for
the artists,” Isaacs said.

The show includes more than
40 pieces, amon them oil and

pastel paintings, c alk, pencil, and_

pen and ink drawings. All of the
artwork is for sale, with proCeeds

goin to the artist.

T e theme expressed by
NARSAD Artworks is creating
something positive out of some-
thing negative.

According to the exhibit state-
ment, “the organization‘s theme,
‘Sunshine from Darkness’ shows
how, despite the fact that they
have mental illnesses, these
artists still have the artistic abili-
ty and performance to create
expressive and meaningful works
of art.”

“The artwork reflects the
lives, ex eriences, and talents of
less we l-known artists whose
mental illness, vision, and ability
have informed their work in
meaningful'ways," said Kay Red-
fieldjamison, sychiatry professor
at The John Flopkins School of
Medicine in Baltimore.

“Far from being the stereotypi-
cal ‘work of the mad,’ the draw-
ings and paintings demonstrate
the essential combination of disci-

pline, emotion and imagination
that comprises the basis of cre-
ative work,”]amison said.

“I feel honored to have this
show here at UK,” said Lara Baker,
an intern in the President‘s Rootn
who helped organize the event.


Student loan delault rates down again

By Jail Vinson
Senior Staff Writer

The student loan default rate
dropped for the fifth consecutive
year to 10.4 percent for fiscal year
1995 from 10.7 in 1994, U5. Sec-
retary of Education Richard Riley
said today.

The 1995 default rate — the
most current data available — rep-
resents borrowers whose first loan
repayments came due in 1995 and
who defaulted on those loans
before Oct. 1 1996. Default rates
hit an all-time high of22.4 percent
in 1990.

During that same period, how-
ever, UK’s default rate rose to 7.8
percent from 6 percent. The Uni—
versity of Louisville’s default rate
rose to 10.3 percent from 9.8 per-

For their art, benchmark
schools like the niversity of North
Carolina saw its rate drop to 1.2 per-
cent from 1.4 percent, while Indiana
University default rates jumped to
4.8 percent from 3.2 percent.

“This five- ear trend is truly
astounding w en considered in
the context of where we were not
so long ago,” Riley said.

“College is a serious commit-
ment and students need to make
informed education decisions and
honor their financial obliga-

Although the declining default
rate is encouraging, more students
are borrowing money to pay for
higher education.

Student loan volume has more

than doubled in this decade. In fis-
cal year 1997, 5.4 million students
borrowed $34 billion in federal
loans, and that’s cause for con—
cern, Riley said.
“Sgtdents are borrowing at
recor levels to pay for college,”
Riley said. “That raises an impor-
tant question —— is increasing debt
directly related to the increase in
default rates for public and pri—
vate two-year and four-year

The default rate for graduates
of private four-year institutions
increased to 6.9 percent in 1995 to

6.3 percent in 1994. Yet at trade
schools, which have the highest
default rates among higher educa—
tion institutions, the rate dropped
to 19.9 percent from 21.1 percent.

Loan defaults from 1995 throu h
the end of fiscal year 1997 cost tfie
federal government $7.9 billion.

The national rates reflect
default rates for more than 7,000
schools that participated in the
Federal Family Education Loan
Program and the William D. Ford
Federal Direct Loan Program at
that time. About 1,500 schools no
longer participate in federal

loan programs. Their default
rates weren’t released.

Schools with excessive default
rates —— 25 percent or more for
three consecutive years —— may be
dro ped from one or tnore federal
stu ent aid programs.

The agency's more aggressive
actions to recover loans have con—
tributed to the downward trend,
Rile said. Students who default
on f;deral loans can have their
federal income tax refunds with-
held and wages garnished. The

department recovered $500 mil—
lion b ' offsetting federal income
tax ref'unds and collected $19 mil—
lion with a program which
deducts payments from fortner
students' bank accounts.

“\Ve’re aggressive but compas—
sionate,” said David Longanecker.
assistant secretary for Post—Sec-
ondary Education. "\Ve don't
break knees, but we try to collect
every dollar we can."

New education initiatives
should limit the amount of debt
students have after raduation,
Riley said. Those incl'ude Presi-
dent Bill Clinton’s $1,500 IIOPF.
tax credit for the first two years of
college. Also, the maximum Pell
Grant award for the nation’s need—
iest students rose to $3,000 thanks
to a $1.4 billion boost in the grant
program. A new tax break allowing
students to deduct interest on stu-
dent loans will go into effect in
1998 and also reduce indebted-

At first students will be able to
deduct u to $1,000, a cap that will
grow to 2,500 in 2001.

LOS ANGELES — School of
Cinema-Television instructor
Duane Byrge has been indefinitely
removed from his teaching posi-
tion as a result of displaying inap-

ropriate conduct in class last
Thursday, school officials said.
Students said 13 rge appeared
intoxicated in his eatrical Film
Symposium class , as he conducted
a question-and-answer session with
Basil Poledouris, who composed
the score to “Smrship Troopers.”

. The class which screens new
films, usually draws more than 400
students to Norris Cinema The-
atre. Byrge, however, said jet lag
was responsible for his conduct.

‘ “He made a fool of himself,”
said Cynthia Hakopian, a junior

majoring in business. “His speech
was slurred, and he was slouched
down in his seat.”

“He usuall
beginning of class for about a half
hour and asks the guests uestions
(at the end of class),” akopian
said. “(Thursday) he only asked
one or two questions and turned it
over to the students. Everyone
was laughin , and I think the
guest got rea y mad.”

Students said they were sur-
prised at Byrge's conduct durin
class, but man associated it wit

the effects of a cohol.

“His behavior was completely
out of character for him,” said
Alex Fox, a senior majoring in
theater. “He was almost the
stereotypical drunk. He was slur-
ring his speech, and he asked no
coherent questions. He couldn't

lectures in the

even finish his sentences.”

“He is usually very knowled e—
able, certain] about the guests,” ox
said. “But ursday he just gave a
lame introduction and sat down. He
must have been just trashed.”

Some students said that Byrge
usually conducts a casual class, but
his behavior that night was unlike
it had been in previous classes.

“He doesn't normally com-
mand much respect from the
class,” said Ingrid Crowe, a junior
majoring in film production.
“However, he normally is not
what he was (Thursday). Every-
one was laughing at him.”
