‘ Study suggests tuition increase


By Capri Cicero
Staff ll 'r'itrr

Certain issues seem to be reborn every couple of
years, and regardless of when the cycles renew them—
selves, they create concern amon 7 students.

Increasing tuition is one oft ese concerns. The
mention of tuition increases produces a shudder in
students as \isions of dollar signs floating away seem
to close minds to any idea of compromise.

In the 1997 Kentucky Annual Economic Report
from the Center for Business and Economic
Research, Dan Black, a labor economist, and
Amitabh Chandra, a labor economics graduate stu—
dent, tackled the economics of raising tuition at pub-
lic universities in Kentucky. According to Chandra,
who became interested in the subject as a result of
his senior honors‘ thesis, increasing tuition is “one
angle of education reform that has gone unnoticed."

The report, titled “More Efficient Financing of
Higher Education: The Case for Tuition Increas—
es,” argues, among other things, that subsidizing

public universities is an inefficient way to provide
financial aid to residents of the state.

Not only does this method allow the universities
to rely on the government for financing. regardless
of the quality ofeducation, but it provides a foriii of
financial aid to students who could afford to pay
much more for college, according to the report.

Although Chandra agreed that UK is considered
by many to be the best school in the state, many of

Yesterday marked the 24th anniversary ofthe Roe
v, “"3th decision that gave women the constitution-
ally protected right to abortion in the early stages of

“In Memory of the Courageous Women \Nho
Died from Illegal Unsafe Abortions Because They
Had No Choice" was a program designed to push
rights forward.

“\Ve need to remember we're not going to let the
clock be turned back," said Lise Smith—Peters of
Lexington Planned Parenthood.

Women shared their stories of back—street abor—
tions prior to 1973 in the film ”lien Abortion War
Illegal: Untold Stories. A doctor in the film said that in
the 19505, at least 20 or 30 women came in daily,
bleeding from botched abortions.

To obtain medical treatment, some women had to
testify against their husbands. Others drank toxic
chemicals or were raped by criminal abortionists.

In Kentucky, women can choose to have abor—
tions in Fayette and Jefferson counties. The risk fac—
tor is one percent for women in their first trimester
and less than two percent for women in the second
trimester, said Elizabeth Strom of the Kentucky
chapter of the National Organization for Women.

Today, abortion is one of the most common clini—
cal procedures, I 1 times safer than carryin a preg—
nancy to term, and twice as safe as a penicil in injec—
tion, according to a Planned Parenthood fact sheet.

More than 50 percent of pregnancies are unin—
tended, and half-are terminated by abortion, accord—
ing to the Alan Guttmacher Institute.

Strom works at a clinic that performs abortions,
and she defends the practice. She said nothing in the

Bible says abortion in immoral, nor is it ille ral.
However, Strom said the clinic gets anonymous Tet—
ters and phone calls from anti—abortion citizens.

“Those who are opposed to abortion are coward—
ly," Strom said. “They haven’t expressed their opin-
ions openly.”

Tom Stickler from the American Civil Liberties
Union views abortion as a personal choice.

He said human beings are here solely to pass on

forced to get pregnant, she should not be forced to
have a baby ifshe is not ready to.

“Think'of all the liinsteins andJeffrcy l)aliiners
we've lost to abortion," he said. “Then, think oftlic
ones we've lost to abstinence."

As the program wound down and open discussion
began, the audience was urged to take political
action and share their stories.

Refunds for courses dropped after the
fourth week of the semester will not be an
option starting this fall.

Currently, students can receive a 50 per—
cent refund until the eighth week of the
term. The UK Board of Trustees voted
Tuesday to implement the change despite
opposition from faculty and student mem-

The policy revision is designed to save
administrative costs and provide students
with quicker refunds, as well as make UK’s
policy more consistent with its benchmark
institutions, according to the recommenda-
tion from the Office of the President.

But the policy may be detrimental to
community college students, said commu—
nity college faculty representative Jim
Miller, one of three trustees who voted
against the revision.

Many of these students work at least one
job, are married and have children, he said.

They sometimes need the extra time to
make a decision about a course because
they may have to deal with unexpected cir-
cumstances, such as a shift change at work
or a sick child.

“-We’vc effectively closed the door (for
refunds) to those students,” Miller said.

Jack Guthrie, an alumni member who

voted in favor of the recommendation, said
“there is no intention at all to hurt a stu-

Though the revision is good because it
brings the University in line with its
benchmarks and increases efficiency,
Guthrie said he would be interested in
reviewing the policy after a year if it seems
to be having a detrimental effect on stu-
dents. Based on his experience as a student,
Guthrie said, most students probably will
not have a problem in simply dropping
classes earlier to receive a refund.

“Whatever time period you've got, you
take," he said.

Student member and Student (iovern-
ment Association President Alan Aja, who
voted against the change, said he did so for
the community college students and finan—
cially unstable students.

“It’s very important to them that they
have a more open option,” Aja said.

Aja said he would have supported a
compromise in which students could
receive a refund until the fifth or sixth

“Sometimes I don’t even have a grade by
the fourth week," Aja said.

In a study of UK’s benchmarks con-
ducted by the Office of Management and
Budget, only two universities out of l I had

was a working meeting with Prime Minister Vik-

The visit was reported by the presidential press

It’s nothing new for Derek
Anderson, but that doesn’t make
things any easier.

Anderson yesterday had suc-
cessful arthroscopic surgery on his
right knee, the second time in his
collegiate career that such an
operation has ended his season.

In a release issued by the UK
Medical Center, David Caborn,
M.I)., said the operation was suc—
cessful and Anderson began
immediate physical physical thera-
py with quadriceps activation, full
extension anti continuous passive
motion while in the recovery

The operation lasted one hour
and 20 minutes. Anderson’s prog-
nosis is excellent, according to the
release, and he should be fully
recovered by this summer.

UK coach Rick Pitino said on
'I‘uesday that UK's objective was
to have Anderson in good shape
in time forjune's NBA Draft.

“I le won't be ready to play, but
he’ll be ready to get drafted," Piti—
no said. “The question is, will
someone draft him. Hopefully we
can have him close to where they
can see the surgery was very suc—
cessful at that point."

medicine specialist at UK I Iospital
and L'K's team physician. per—
formed the operation. \\'hile a
sophomore at Ohio State, Ander-
son suffered a similar injury to his
left knee.

Those injuries coupled togeth-
er will hinder Anderson's draft
position, said Pitino, who said
Anderson was “on the verge of
becoming a lottery pick" before
the injury.

“Derek's game is quickness,
speed," the UK coach said. “For

(IlNCl.\'.\':\'l‘l w Sometimes
statistics don't tell the whole
story, but last night the statistics
didn't lie for the UK women’s
basketball team.

As a prelude to the UK men's
game. the Cats were out rebound-
ed by more than a l—to-l margin
iii a 78-02 loss to No. 4 Alabama.

In an otherwise even statistical
battle. UK was dominated on the
glass 53—25, and that spelled doom
for the Cats.

“()ne of the things that we've
talked about in the past few days is
rebounding," L'K head coach
Bernadette Mattox said.

“And one of the keys to losing
this game is that we didn‘t block
out at all."

:\t the outset of the game, it
seemed as if the Tide would roll
over the Cats. Alabama started the
gattte with a blit'ling 13—0 run.

The Cats regained composure
arid were able to close within two
points with 7:5:- left in the first
half. and CK went to the locker

nationally ranked Crimson Tide.

“It appeared to tile early in the
game that this could be a run—

“Kim sprained her ankle today
in the shoot-around. btit she
understood this was an SFC game

Packers coach Mike llolmgren
said he understands the NFL is
not planning to address the issue
further until after the Super Bowl.

The NFL wouldn't comment
