if their opinions
mattered to CHE


By Brlan Bennett
Senior Staff Writer


They were invited to come and
give their opinions, but students
now are wondering how much it
really mattered.

University students from across
the state were urged to participate
in the state Council on Higher Edu-
cation‘s public hearings the past
two weeks regarding a proposed
tuition increase and a recommenda—
tion to set rates annually.

The handful who came to each
meeting were opposed almost uni-
versally to the prospect of paying
more for their educations.

But comments from the council‘s
top officials Thursday night indicat-
ed that the increase is already decid»

“1 think. at this day turd time, (a
tuition increase is) really tlte most
realistic approach we can take and
the most responsible.” said Joe Bill





Campbell, CHE chairman.

The hearings were spurred by a
recommendation from the eight uni-
versity presidents that the council to
raise rates already set for 1993-94.

Those eight opinions seem to
have mattered more than the opin-
ions of the dozens of students who
testified and the elected representa-
tives of about |()U.(l()(l state univer-
sity pupils.

“When all the univcr‘ ity prcsi-
dents get behind soiiieihing. cliancr

to matter much to the council,
whose members weren’t visibly
swayed at the hearings.

Council members _. an average
of about nine of the 17 members at-

questions during the meetings.

Members for the most part sat emo-

notes and sipping ice water.

First there were roller blades.
Then there was bungee jumping.
Now. there’s karaoke.

Karaoke originally was a Japa~
nese hobby but has grown into a $2
billion intcmational entertainment
industry, according to some esti-

It was first introduced to the
United States in l984 and was
strictly reserved for bold beer drink»
ers who belted out song lyrics flash-
ing across the karaoke machine
screen in local night clubs.

However, the machine now is vir-
tually everywhere — from parties
to picnics. even in grocery stores.

The largest promotion for ka-
raoke was sponsored by the Pcpsico
lnc.’s “Uh-Huh” tour for Diet Pep-
si. Celebrity-seeking Americans
could experience a few minutes of
fame between the potato chip and
soda aisles, along with the Uh-Huh
girls and a Ray Charles cardboard

Karaoke also is being used at car
dealerships. malls and weddings.

UK campus organizations are
quickly latching on to the trend.
Holmes Hall hosted a karaoke party
during the fall, and Sigma Pi social
fraternity recently held a karaoke
party as part of its spring rush.

“It's become a lot more popular
over the past year." Holmes Hall
resident adviser Dave McClements

said. “There's been talk of starting
an area karaoke program for this
side of campus, but it‘s still open
for disc ussion."

McClcments added that past ka-
raoke parties have gone over well.

On Thursday and Saturday even-
ings, students can practice karaoke
at Southland Bowling Alley. Ad-
mission is free.

“We have a huge selection to
choose front, and Saturday nights
are packed." said Sue Grimes, a
Southland employee. “Some people
come just for karaoke."

Two versions of each song will
be played at the bowling alley:
first, the original version. and then a
second version consisting only of
background music. Lyrics are pro-
vided for the second version, and a
tape of it is available for purchase

“It‘s really big during week-
nights, but on the weekends we get
more dancers than singers," Radis‘
son bar manager Samoni Biancon-
cini said.

“After the crowd members have
finished their attempted singing, we
give them a free cassette,“ she said.

Students in the College of Allied
Health Professions can rest easy to-
night because, contrary to rumors.
their college is not being considered
for elimination.

The rumor about the college's
closing staned after UK President
Charles Wethington released his re-
structuring report last week.

According to this report, health
sciences education, one of the nine
divisions in the College of Allied
Health Professions, is closing. Be-
cause of the wording of the report,
some students in the college be.
lieved the entire college was clos«
ing. '

Allied Health Professions Dean
Thomas C. Robinson said he has
heard at least 20 inquiries about the
closing of the college.

Robinson said the college will
work with the students enrolled in
the health sciences education pro-
gram to help them get their degrees
but will not allow new students to

“We have to let the people know
the College of Allied Health is alive
and well," Robinson said. “I wanted

Health sciences education has 20
part-time students enrolled in the
bachelor's degree program and 1-1
students in the master's degree pro-
gram, -

Robinson said the closing of this
division will not affect the college

Fifteen years ago. he said. the
college only had 400 students en-
rolled. Today, it has more than
1,350 students.

The college is the youngest col-
lege at [K Hospital and the one
with the largest enrollment.

“Students find out that these are
not only worthwhile and challeng-
ing professions. btit there are jobs
out there." Robinson said. “That’s
one of the reasons our enrollment
is growing."

The college is divided into two
deparunents. clinical sciences and
health services. There are live divi-
sions under clinical sciences: clini«

I had to be physically restrained
after spotting a pack of bimbo bow-
heads at the Mom'ssey concert two
months ago.

They would have looked more at
home at a Paula Abdul or Bon Jovi
concert. They were the kind of girls
who aspire to appear in Mbtley Criie
videos as the obligatory spandex-
clad greasy babes.

I felt so violated.

I suppose it was only a matter of
time. After all, most of the other
musicians I had championed for
years like the Cure, Nine Inch Nails
and REM have crossed over to the

Not that it is necessarily a bad
thing. It should make me feel a wee
bit superior knowing that I owned
four B-52's albums before anyone
had heard “Love Shack."

But, when you are one of 10 fans
of a band, it makes you feel like one
of the chosen few, the only ones
who are sman enough to realize

how great the group is.

I liked it better when l was hip.
When you are hip, you are a minor-
ity, only recognizable by others
who are hip or New Yorkers (often
the same people). To anyone else
you are weird.

Now I‘m merely cool. Anyone
can be cool, especially if he or she
is between the ages of ll and 17
and has a sizable allowance.

My 12-year-old sister is cool be-
cause she gave up the New Kids on
the Block for the B-52‘s. Mean-
while, the Red Hot Chili Pepper are
right along side Sir Mix-A-Lot in
my 14-year—old brother’s tape col-
lection. My sister said they’re into
“altemative” music.

That word makes me seethe! No
one really knows what it means
(except record company executives
who know it means money), but I
think it is safe to say that when
REM has sold 30 zillion records. it
is no longer alternative.

Which leaves tne to ponder,
when else is “alternative” music no
longer alternative?

Nothing from Seattle is alterna-
tive. If the word Seattle is used in
connection to anything, a million
flannel-clad skater boys from the,

suburbs will buy it — even if it is
uninspired noisy crap (which it usu-
ally is).

By that same token, grungy flan-
nel shirts are no longer alternative.
They sell them at the Gap, for
God‘s sake.

When hoards of white, upper-
middle class heterosexuals dripping
in LL. Bean invaded the Metro
here in Lexington, it was no longer
alternative. It has closed and is now
a country-westem barn — um, I
mean, bar. See what you people
have done?

People who think that “Supersti-
tion" was Siouxsie and the Ban-
shec’s debut and that the Chili Pep-
pers is a hot new band are not
alternative (and are probably not
too sman, either).

Lollapalooza is not, I repeat not,
alternative. Nice try, though.

So what is left for those of us
who like to be on the cutting edge
(elitist)? Polka, perhaps?

I don‘t know, but I’m sure you'll
pardon me while I search for some-
thing no one has ever heard of so I
can be hip again.

journalism sophomore and a K in

Gloria Steinem, editor of Ms.
maga/ine for 17 years and one of
the founders of the modern Ameri-
can feminist movement, ventures
onto personal ground with her best
scller “Revolution from Within: A
Book of Self-Esteem."

“Revolution from Within" is dedi-
cated to “everyone —— women, men,
children and even nations —- whose
power has been limited by a lack of

Steinem argues that children have
an innate sense of self-worth that is
lowered slowly by the injustices of
society. She looks candidly at her
own childhood.

She began taking care of her un-
stable mother at the young age of IO
when her father left. Steinem uses
this and other personal anecdotes to
fuel her discussion of topics like pa-
renting, education, religion and the

She attacks the United States'
school system from elementary
school through college. She quotes
several statistics. including the facts
that boys are five times more likely
to receive the teacher’s attention
than girls and eight to l2 times more
likely to speak up in class, and chil-
dren‘s stories read in elementary
school contain 2.5 times more male

for education. since it has under-

Another institution Steinem tack-
les is patriarchal religion. She criti-
cizes this system of religion, “But
if God is white, then whiteness is
godly. If God is a man, then man is
a god. Any religion in which God

class is very different from spiritu»
ality that honors the godliness in
each of us.”

Steinem’s analysis of American
culture and the barriers it imposes
on self-esteem is written clearly
and free of academic jargon. The ti-
tle sounds daunting, but, in fact.
“Revolution from Within" is a
pleasure to read.

“Revolution from Within" is a
synthesis of many disciplines but
does not overwhelm the audience
by its scope. Steinem integrates an
impressive array of sources from
the latest studies in psychology and
sociology. as well as Sigmund
Freud, Alice Walker and Stephen

Critic goes through
own ordeal during
new movie ‘Alive’

l was in a local movie theater
minding my own business, waiting
for “Alive" to begin. Why in the
world they chose to sit right behind
me is anyone’s guess.

it probably was bad karma that
those six mouthy members of some
mystery sorority (with correspond-
ing attitudes and bows in their hair)
decided to be close to me that night.
Maybe I should have just felt lucky.
but instead I was scanning the thea-

Sadly, the lights began to dim,
and l was frozen in my seat like a
deer in approaching headlights. “Oh.

strength to hike toward civilization
through the treacherous mountains.

Obviously, this fact stirred up a
great deal of controversy and specu-
lation at the time. But. as disgusting
as this may sound, the lilm shows
us that this act wasn‘t done without
significant soul-searching.

Ethan Hawke, Vincent Spano and
Josh Hamilton portray Nando Parra-

With such grim subject matter, l
was especially surprised at how
funny “Alive“ turned out to be.

l‘inest performance as Carlitos
