UK's black enrollment numbers show increase

By Manish Bhatia

And the results are in.

The Council on Postscx'ondary
Education on minority enrollment
at UK announced its findings
based upon UK's 1997 report card.

"I think UK has made
tremendous progress in African-
American enrollment," said Lau»
retta Byars, vice chancellor for
Minority Affairs at UK.

"We doubled our enrollment
in the last 10 years." site said.

portunities available to its stu-
dents has made UK the flagship
institution of the state. Byars said.
The Council set specific stan-
dards for different aspects of the
minority enrollment which a par-
ticular state college or university
has to meet or show progress.
“For UK. the plan‘s objective
is to have at least 7 percent of its
in~state undergraduate enroll-
tnent to be African American."

year. he said.

The second objective of the
plan dealt with student retention
rates. UK retained 79.4 percent of
its black. in-state freshmen. mea-
sured between successive Fall se-

With respect to the total
black student body. UK retained
about 70.6 percent. Jackson said.
In both aspects. UK outscored the
required numbers of 77.6 percent
and 66.6 percent. respectively.

The council also set goals for
the number of degrees awarded to
black students. expecting at least

57.5 percent of the students to
graduate within six years. I'K
showed advanccmcnt in this re-
spect, awarding 18 more degrees
in 1997 than in 1096. with an over-
all graduation rate (if-12.2 percent.

UK tnct the final objective of

black enrollment in graduate
school by enrolling 6.I percent
minority students. as opposed to
the cutotl‘ number of 5.3 percent.

“Overall. UK is doing a pretty
good job of making higher educa
tion accessible to African Anteri-
can residents of the state.” Jack»
son said.

Since the term “minority”

only applied to blacks. other
groups like Asian or Latino did
not come under these objectives.
he said. "We are currently look
ing into total campus diversity
and having all urider-represented
groups looked at."

Nate Brown. Student (lovem-
ment Association president. said
there was still work to be done to
make UK congenial toward mi-
nority students.

“We need more minority fac—
ulty members at I'K." Brown
said. "All students. regardless of
race. need to learn from classes
taught by minority professors."

It's the greatest free show
on earth.

Yesterday was Fat Tues-
day. It was the culmination of
the Mardi Gras season. a his—
toric annual party held in
New Orleans. I.a.. from Jan. 6
to the third Tuesday of Febru-

The custom we now know
as Mardi (Eras began in its
tnodern form around I718 in
French New Orleans with pri-

al sense of hedonistn as thou-
sands of people flock to New
Orleans to partake in the fes-
tivities. There are parades.
parties. drinking and displays
of raw sexuality everywhere.

In honor of the end of the
Mardi Gras season. the Stu~
dent Activities Board sport-
sored a Mardi Gras~themed
karaoke party last night in the
Student Center Gameroom.

The purpose. according to
Student Activities Program
Assistants Anita McGiII and
Matt Dwyer. was to help pro-
mote the gameroom and give

McGilI said. “this is a good al-
ternative and basically. just a
good theme for a party."

The gameroom has been
trying to host periodic events
since its renovation last year.
Marissa Fugate. a Spanish in-
ternational economics and
marketing sophomore and
chairperson of Indoor Activi
ties. is responsible for the
gaineroom activities.

“Last semester we did
karaoke every Wednesday
night," Fugate said, “and we
wanted to do something spe-
cial this semester involving
karaoke. and Mardi Gras just
happened to be the nearest
special event."

Most students do not get
to take the trip to New Or-
leans to experience the party
first hand.

However. Ginny Booher.
a nursing freshman. did get to
visit the celebration this year.

“I heard it can be pretty
dangerous but I didn‘t have
any problems." Booher said.

ATHENS, Greece *— Kurdish protesters

in mass protests over the arrest of a fugitive Kur-

the back of a pickup truck June 7 and dragged for

BELFAST, Northern Ireland — Legislators in

for a new Protestant-Catholic government for
Northern Ireland yesterday, 10 months after

Catholics and eight “neutral” politicians voted in

address on the state of education to describing the

Tomatoes may lower cancer risk

WASHINGTON — A new study confirms a
long-suspected view that eating lots of fresh and
processed tomatoes can lower the risk of some
kinds of cancer. The summary study in the Jour-
nal of the National Cancer Institute found there is
now enough data to show convincingly “that high
consumers of tomatoes and tomato products are
at substantially decreased risk of numerous can-
cers, although probably not all cancers.” The data
are most compelling for cancers of the prostate
gland, lung and stomach, said Dr. Edward Gio-
vannucci, author of the report.

Bands to do battle
for kids’ charities

By W Scott

Rock and roll, coochie :00.

It‘s Battle of the Bands
time again, but this time it’s
for the kids.

Kappa Delta sorority will
be hosting its second annual
Battle of the Bands to raise
money for the Nest, a Lexing-
ton-based children’s home,
and the National Committee
to Prevent Child Abuse.

The concert will be held
Thursday in the Student Cen-
ter Ballroom from 6 pm. - 10
pm. Tickets can be purchased
in advance for $3 at the Stu-
dent Center, the Complex
Commons, the Fine Arts
Building or at the door for $5.

The Schuers, last year‘s
competition judges, will set
the stage for the battle. They
will not be actively involved in
the competition again this
year but will set the scene for
the audience. The Norm,
KeltiK Rage, Poole’s Creek
Band, Sulfur. Private Blend
and Maelstrom will wait in the
backstage barracks for its per-
formances after the Schuers.

Most of the bands are al-
ternative. but some of the mu-
sic borders on punk or heavy
metal, said Melissa Brown, a

The competition will be
refereed by Z-103.3, who will be
on-location to do a live remote.
Bands will be judged “by crowd
reaction and overall musical
performance,” said Lauren
Barrett, KD member and com-
munications sophomore.

The winning band will be
rewarded with free recording
time, Brown said.

Last year’s Battle of the
Bands was quite successful,
featuring bands such as the
Schuers, Catawampus and
Barefoot Charlies. The event
raised over $1,000.

“This year we hope to
double that,” Barrett said.

Bands in this year’s com-
petition are all local and were
selected long before the event
was set to go.

“A lot of us knew them
(band members), and we told
them about it,” said Allison
Rachford, KD member and ac-
counting junior. “We adver-
tised to get bands to partici-
pate and some even sent us
demo tapes.”

“It is an extremely good
way to make a lot of money in
a really good atmosphere,”
Barrett said.

Cats have 12 players score, force 35 Colonel
turnovers during 87-47 romp in Richmond

By Adam Spaw

women's basketball team got
some quality airtime on the Fox
Sports Network last night at
EKU‘s McBrayer Arena.

And so did EKU’s Lady
Colonels. along with a few air-
balls ~ about six of them. to be
exact ~ all in the first half.

“That was by far the best
Kentucky team I've ever
faced." EKU Head Coach Lar-
ry Joe lnman said after his
Lady Colonel‘s 87-47 loss to

“1 know what Custard felt
like now ,1 man. they really
came at us hard."

UK made good use of its
full-court press. which caused
18 first‘halt" EKU “air-headed"
plays. (a.k.a. turnovers). and
jumped out to a commanding
18-3 lead in the game's first 12
minutes from which it never
looked back.

Bernadette Mattox‘s club
kept building its lead. captiliz-
ing off Lady Colonel miscues
and missed shots ~ EKU post-
ed a miserable 20 percent from
the field in first half.

Eight UK players scored in
the first half. lead by junior
guard Tiffany Wait's 13. The
Lady Colonels went into the

for air, after all. they were
pressed for 20 straight min

And the cause for UK's
domination of Colonel Cus-

Lady Colonels? Maybe practice
really does make perfect.

“That‘s the kind of defense
we want to keep playing." Mat-
tox said. “We‘ve been seeing it
in practice and it just carried
over to the game tonight.“

Kenya Young. a sophomore
forward who chipped in 8
points for the Cats. said press—
ing is an everyday routine on
the practice floor.

“We hadn‘t run our press
in a while.“ Young said. “Coach
told us this would be a good
game to use it. because we defi-
nitely know we‘ll be using it in

If practice is any indica~

time to gel.

With only three regular
