Yesterday, the day after conser—
vative Republican presidential
candidate, Patrick Buchanan, nar-
rowly defeated Bob Dole to win
the New Hampshire GOP prima-
ry, thousands came from near and
far to welcome First Lady Hillary
Rodham Clinton to Lexington.

The first lady made an appear—
ance atJoseph—Beth Booksellers in
Lexington Green on Nicholasville
Road to promote her new book, It
Takes a Village and Other Stories .

Clinton arrived at the book—
store at noon, and stayed until she
had shook hands with the more
than 2,000 people who decided to
purchase her book.

After exchanging small talk
with Clinton, individuals were
~ given a previously autographed
). copy of the book.

“I am so glad to see all of you
here today," Clinton said.

“I am so grateful that so many
of you could come to support my

Amid a crowd of thousands that

winded around the mall not a sin-
l gle opponent of the first lady
could be found.
E “Mrs. Clinton’s noble efforts
‘ and concerns with children and
health care policy distinguish her
as one of the greatest Americans
now living," Mark Shipley, a Lex-
ington resident said.

“She is a truly wonderful
woman and our country is privi-
leged to have her.”

Those in attendance at joseph-
Beth’s spoke only kind words of
Clinton’s contribution to Ameri—
can society.

“She is truly a first lady of all
the people,” Martha Chadwick, a
Louisville resident said.

“This woman has taken it from

all sides over the past four years,
and she has distinguished herself
as by far the best first lady since
Eleanor Roosevelt."
. Clinton’s visit to Lexington
4' marked one of the last stops on
. her third promotional tour for It
‘ Takesa Village.

According to representatives
from Mrs. Clinton’s publisher,
Simon and Shuster, every stop on
the book tour has brought crowds
of thousands to see the first lady.

Former Kentucky first lady and
crowned Miss America, Phyllis
George Brown, Kentucky Demo-
cratic Party Chair Bob Babbage,
UK political science professor
Penny Miller and Lexington
Mayor Pam Miller were among
the first to greet Clinton.

“She is a truly dedicated person
to stand up for the worthy causes
she advocates,” Brown said.

UK students Dale Howard and
Doug Barnett, both political sci-
ence sophomores, decided to pur—
chase a copy of It Takes a Village.
Howard, a founder of the new
campus group, UK Young
Democrats, had only words of
praise for the first lady.

“She has overcome so much
adversity over the past year that it
is amazing that she is able to per-
form as well as she does,” Howard

In her first published work, It
Takes a Village, Clinton discusses
her personal pursuit to discover
how we can mold our society into
the kind of village that enables all
of its children to grow into able.

The title is taken from the
African proverb “It takes a village
to raise a child."

Where are they all going?

Louis Swift, dean of Undergradu-
ate Studies, presented the findings
yesterday of a study conducted to
determine why students don't come
back to UK. About 20 people attended
the meeting in 359 Student Center.

The study was conducted by
Roseann Hogan from UK Lexington
Campus Planning and Assessment.

A comparison of the six-year grad—
uation rates of UK and its benchmark
institutions for freshmen entering
school in the 1987-88 and 1988—89
school years ranked UK dead last both
times. The leader of the pack, the
University of Virginia, exceeded 90
percent in both years; UK, on the
other hand, lim ed to 50 percent.

The study a so found that the er—
centage of people graduating ffom
UK in four years has declined from
about 20 percent for students entering
school in 1984 to a little more than 13
percent for students who entered
school in 1991.

A large part of the study focused
on people who attended UK in the

fall of 1993 but did not return in the
fall of 1994.

All of the students surveyed had a
grade-point average of2.0 or higher.

For students polled who were
freshmen in the fall of 1993, the top
four reasons for leaving UK were: to
transfer to another university, because
the university was too large and
impersonal, lack of money, and to be
closer to family and friends.

Students polled who were sopho-
mores in the fall of 1993 also cited the
intention oftransfer as the top reason
for leaving.

The next most popular reasons list-
ed were: disliking Lexington, person-
al/family problems or illness, and
deciding to pursue a major that UK
does not offer. The intention to trans-
fer was also number one for students

olled who were juniors or seniors in
the fall of 1993.

Personal/family problems or ill—
ness, “stopping out” for a time before
returning to UK, and lack of money
rounded out their top four.

Greek groups ready to make splash

Contributing M’n'ter

Members of the Greek community are
inakin a splash while making money for
a wort while cause.

The 25th annual Anchor Splash, spon—
sored by Delta Gamma social sorority
and Sigma Phi Epsilon social fraternity,
will take place tonight at Lancaster
Aquatic Center. Proceeds raised from
admission and T-shirt sales will go to
sight conservation and help provide aid to
the blind.

Anchor Splash brings together mem—
bers of the Greek community in a variety
of traditional and non-traditional swim—
ming events. The more traditional events
include the ZOO—yard medley relay and
synchronized swimming. Other events
include the 100 yard sweatshirt relay, the

Heather \Villiams, co—chair for the
event, said that “Save the Mermaid" was a
way to get the coaches from each frater-
nity and sorority team involved. In this
event, a male and female swimmer from
each team swims one of their coaches
across the pool and back in an inner tube.

Special events that correlate with
Anchor Splash consist of a banner con—
test, a serenade contest, and the “Most
Beautiful Eyes” contest. In addition, Mr.
and Miss Anchor Splash will be crowned.

\Villiams said that the special events
allow the groups involved to use their
creativity. She said that members of the
sororities and fraternities involved are
encouraged to “dress wacky" and show
spirit in supporting the participants.

\Villiaiiis added that the sponsors work to make the

Still approves Lambda
prevention conference

By Gary Wolf

A bill appropriating funds to
help UK Lambda coordinate its
Come Together Kentucky
Youth Prevention Conference
on April 19-21 passed last ni ht.

T e bill sponsored by Co lege
of Architecture Senator Daniel
Piseli originally asked for $1,950
in order to cover advertisements,
space rental and the speakers.

However, it was quickly
amended to $1,800 to pay for
only the keynote speaker,
Urvasha Vaid.

John Davis of UK Lambda, a
campus gay, lesbian and bi—sexu-
al student group, was pleased
with the results.

“We are very happy," he said.
“We got all the money we asked

The purpose of the confer-
ence is to enable students from
Kentucky schools to come
together one-on—one and in
small groups to discuss effective
strategies for HIV prevention
through the building of commu-
nity and identity as lesbian, gay
and bisexual youth, he said.

Senator at Large Alan Aja
supported the bill.

”Doesn’t matter what the
organization is,” he said. “It is
addressing issues the student
body wants to hear about.”

Bill sponsors said the confer-
ence would not only help UK
students but also those in rural
areas of Kentucky that don’t
have the access to informations
and empowerment to stop the
spread of HIV.

The conference will provide
workshops that focus on empow-
ering young people to make
healthy decisions in their lives by
building self-esteem, developing
relationship skills, providing
knowledge about health options
and enhancing leadership skills.

“Through the types of work-
shops that this conference pro-
vides, students are educated in
the most effective ways possible
and then are able to return to
educate their peers creating a
ripple effect that truly combats
the spread of HIV,” said John D.
Davis in a letter to SGA commit-
tee members.

Senator at large Tim Niebel
was against the amendment, but
supported the bill.

“The amendment was
ambi ruous and I don't like vot—
ing fbr something where the
money could go anywhere,"
Niebel said.

Lexington Community Col—
lege Senator Jared Ison spoke
against the bill.

“I had brought this issue to
LCC students and explained it to
them to the best of my ability.
No one I talked to was for it,” he

“I'm sure it would be a good
conference for AIDS prevention,
but no one I talked to was a bun—
dred percent for it.”

UK Lambda had previously
raised 70 ercent of the $6,950
needed to liold the event.

To raise money for the event,
UK Lambda received a grant
from Lexington Frontrunners
and the Centers for Disease
