Air refresher - Find
source of odor and
deal with it. Open
windows to ventilate.
To scent air, use
herbal bouquets,
pure vanilla on a
cotton ball, or
simmer cinnamon and

Ants (in house) - Locate
entry point and seal
with caulk. Remove
all sources of food
and water. Kill visible
ants. Wash
countertops, cabinets
and floor with equal
parts of vinegar and
water to deter ant
infestation. Also,
there is an herb
called "tansy" that is
repulsive to ants. Lay
cut branches by
windows or wherever
they come in; they
won't anymore!

Brass polish - Use paste
made from equal
parts vinegar, salt
and flour. Be sure to
rinse completely
afterward to prevent

Car battery corrosion -
Pour baking soda and
water or cola over
battery posts and
scrub with a wire

Chrome polish - Vinegar.

Cleaners, general -
Liquid castile soap.
Use as directed.

Coffee cup stain removal
- Rub with moist salt
or baking soda.

Copper cleaner - Use

The mistakes of the past must be paid for in the present and future, and toxic waste exemplifies this
law perhaps better than any other threat to the well-being of Earth. While the United States decreases
the production of such wastes, many countries are just beginning to discover them.
But what can the average person really do about toxic waste? For starters, tell your elected
representatives you want that deadly garbage cleaned up.
For a simpler way to get in the Earth Day spirit, see the recycling spread on page 3.

Empty pockets: Fine Arts
program needs money, resources

By Chris Markus

A professor strolls over to a copy machine to
make 25 copies of a test for his next class. He press-
es the “copy" button. but nothing comes out.

He checks the tray underneath the copier ~
no paper.

Undaunted, he picks up the phone to call for
more. but there's no dial tone.

This hypothetical scenario is one that the mu-
sic department may eventually face as dwindling
funds have translated into headaches and a lack of
resources for professors in the department.

“Every year it just gets worse. We haven't had
an operating budget increase in 11 years.“ said

{ ’ Harry Clarke. director of the. School of Music.

. The operating budget is the money used by the
music department to cover expenses like phone
linesKtravel. office supplies and equipment.

As the music department at UK has watched
its enrollment numbers steadily rise. the amount
of monby needed to provide adequate resources
has becdme scarce.

Professors in the department who want to
travel to tnusic conferences to promote UK are be-
ing forceti to pay for the trips out of their own
pockets. f

“That's where the University gets its reputa»
tion. notiwithin the walls of the University. but
outside ({ it." said David Sogin, a music education

The’ money problems the music department is
facing Are not just outside the walls ofthc fine arts

The patience of some music professors has
been tested as they are expected to provide a top-
notch education with sub-par resources.

“It‘s a real pet peeve of mine. when l have to
watch a commercial about UK being the Next
Great University‘ and we don‘t even have copy pa-

Nader has vowed to make two stops in each of

Nader’s visit Thursday during the Kentucky por-

Getting the word out

Shooting suspect in custody

LINCOLN PARK. Mich. —~A man suspected
of shooting two women to death was taken into
custody yesterday after allegedly opening fire at
the senior citizens' apartment in which he lived.
authorities said. The tenant was earlier criti-
cized for using inappropriate language, authori-
ties said. Earlier in the day. while the gunman
remained at large, tenants were told to stay in
their apartments. Police cordoned off an area
around the building and searched the building
for several hours. One witness told WXYZ-TV he
heard about 15 shots.

New antibiotic approved

WASHINGTON wThe government is hoping
that a new drug - Zyvox - will give doctors an im—
portant new weapon in the growing battle
against drug-resistant infections. The Food and
Drug Administration approved the long-awaited
drug, described as the world‘s first entirely new
type of antibiotic in 35 years. Zyvox seems to
cure some infections impervious to all other an-
tibiotics. Consequently, Zyvox could help hun<
dreds. perhaps even thousands. of life-threaten-
ing infections every year.

Bush might consider McCain

DEARBORN. Mich. , ~ George W. Bush
mixed election politics with talk of affordable
housing yesterday and said he would consider
asking former rival John McCain to join him on
the GOP ticket. The issue may come up when the
two meet next month. Bush said. “i know he's
said he‘s not interested. but until I talk to him
and find out how interested or not interested he
is, I’ll give him consideration.“ Bush said. His
campaign theme for the day was housing. and he
called for a $1.7 billion tax break for developers
who build for low-income residents.

Yellow cakes? The
skinny on uranium

Amy Crawford

Gaseous Diffusion is an old
technology that puts the
“ummph” in uranium used for
nuclear power plants.

Uranium is an element
found in the earth‘s crust that
can be milled into an isotope
suitable for generating electric

Uranium-235 and Uranium-

238 are two isotopes of urani-
um. Isotopes are elements that
have a different number of neu-
trons in their nuclei. Uranium-
235 is the desirable fissionable
isotope. said George Ann
Lookofsky. public affairs man-
ager at the United States En-
richment Corps Paducah
Gaseous Diffusion Plant.

()ne of the processes used
to transform uranium into a
nuclear usable resource is
gaseous diffusion.

Uranium is mined from the
Earth‘s crust and transported
to a milling facility. There. it is
mixed with fluorine to make a

solid substance called “yellow-
cake" and shipped to gaseous
diffusion plants in the United
States and abroad.

At the plant. the cake is
heated into a gaseous state
called uranium hexafluoride.
The gas is sieved through sever-
al hundreds of miles of pipes in-
side the plant until the urani»
um~235 is enriched to 2.75 per-
cent. This enrichment process
takes about three to four days.

Then the uranium hexaflu»
oride is cooled until it resumes
its solid state and is shipped to
the Portsmouth. Ohio. plant to
be further enriched.

America loves to throw
stuff away.

Steve Feefe. recycling pro-
gram manager for the Lexing-
ton-Fayette Urban-County Gov-
ernment. understands this, but
he can't help but be disappoint—

“Fifty to 60 percent of the
waste put in landfills can be re-
cycled." he said. “A good por-
tion of the remaining waste can
be composted."

Luckily, America is begin-
ning to understand that.

The nation‘s recycling rate
climbed to 28 percent in 1997,
up from 16 percent in 1990. ac-
cording to the Environmental
Protection Agency.

Meanwhile. the EPA says.
society continues to buy more
things. causing more pollution
as the products are manufac-
tured. used. then thrown away


Throw-away culture
leaves bleak legacy

Reduce, reuse, recycle: The mantra that will keep today's generation
from paying outrageous prices for raw materials in the future

without recycling. Landfills.
while providing a quick solu-
tion to waste, are not always
the best choice.

A landfill allows disposal of
solid waste by dumping it in a
specific area. compacting it to
reduce space used. and then
covering it with soil for decom-

“We have attempted to con-
tain wastes in lined landfills.
but the fact is that the liners
will eventually break down."
said Feefe.

The decomposition of land-
fill materials is desirable and is
really the purpose of the land-
fill. However. the process is so
slow that often the waste has
the chance to leak out before it
is not dangerous anymore.

“Once you put stuff in a
landfill. there is not much you
can do with it.“ Feefe said.

But recycling isn’t just a
way to be good to the earth ~~
it‘s also economical.

“It is going to get more and
more expensive to dump in
landfills. because they are get~
ting filled up." said Tom Grego-
ry, recycling coordinator for

“The less you put in. the
cheaper it is.“

Since recycling saves nat-
ural resources. of which there
is a limited supply. the practice
also keeps down the price of
raw materials in the long run.
he said.

“It shows good stewardship
for our world.“ he said.

Jennifer Crawford. recy-
cling assistant and a natural re-
source conservation manage-
ment senior. considers recy-
cling to be an investment for
the future.

“If people were more edu-
cated about the situation of re-
cycling. they would see past the
landfill solution and see that
nearly everything can be recy-
cled." she said.

diminish, music professors are
scrambling for ways to alleviate
the pains that students may feel
from the financial crunch.

“When we have to take a
bullet. 1 think the faculty is will-
ing to shelter the students." 80-
gin said.

Clarke said that one of the
ways the department has tried
to raise money is by charging
people to watch concerts that
just last year were free of

“If you were to look at it
from a business point of view,
any business that would come
in here would take one look at
(the financial situation of the
music department) and laugh.“

Sogin said.

As the situation becomes
more desperate, the music facul-
ty is considering drastic mea-
sures to solve its financial prob

Clarke said that the faculty
is considering shutting off
many of the phone lines in the
music department this summer
as a costcutting measure.

“it‘s a ridiculous way to run
an institution.“ Clarke said.

Although the eight ball is
coming closer to eclipsing the
music department. Clarke said
that he is still confident about
the department‘s future.

However, not everyone is
sharing his optimism.

“I‘ve been on the campus
long enough to know that every
time the University has the
chance to step forward they
take two steps back. I just don‘t
understand,“ Sogin said.

Reasons for cursing vary



Oh. damn! Oh. hell! Oh.
shit! You‘ve heard these words
before; they're cuss words.

Cussing in the United
States is a common thing. Peo-
ple cuss at sporting events. af-
ter an injury. or on television
trying to be funny.

The words and places of

usage are different, but stu-
dents and professors at UK
have shed some light on this
misunderstood subject.

Gene Gallagher, 8 UK soci-
ology professor for nearly 40
years. said there are probably
a couple of reasons why people
cuss. He said emotions may
overflow in a person causing
him or her to have a slip of the
tongue and result in cussing,
or sometimes a person may
want to appear forceful with
“deliberate or controlled

“Swearing or cussing can
be seen as incompetence to use

more forceful language." Gal-
lagher said. “If you cuss it can
mean that you have a limited
vocabulary or that you want to
appear more demanding."

While students may be
hesitant to admit the curse be-
cause of some incompetence.
many will admit the words slip
out frequently.

“The reason i swear is be-
cause I just can‘t think of any-
thing else good to say for that
moment.“ said A.J. Kinch, a bi-
ology senior. “I will also swear
because of something exciting
that just happened like a great
moment in a sporting event."

For Kimberly Fogo. an ac-
counting senior, cussing can
be the quickest outlet of emo-

“For me, it's the fastest
and easiest way to get rid of
my anger," she said.

Regardless of why people
cuss, students say there is al-
ways a time and place for the
usage of the language.

“My parents told me it's all
right to cuss but to do it in up

propriate situations because minds and come up with better
you can look dumb." Kinch words. This would make them.

Nate Mudd. a junior politi- and be different from
cal science major. agreed that (weryhody else,"
circumstance had a huge effect ‘W ‘ “ ' '
on his choice of language.

“My cussing depends on
where I am," he said. “If I'm at
home with my friends watch-
ing a game then it‘s OK. but if
I'm with my grandparents
then it's not.“

While cussing is a part of
life for many UK students.
some of them. even those
guilty of occasionally cussing
themselves, feel that it still is
not the best way to express
one's emotions.

“I don‘t think that swear~
ing is appropriate. 1 think
whatever you‘re feeling. there
is always a better choice of
words." Pogo said. “There is
no need to swear.“

The next time one feels the
urge to swear. merchandising
junior Anna Baldwin has this
advice to give:

For those wishing to tone
down their use of "bad
words," help may be on

the way.

dent of a public relations

local bookstores.
