Uncertainty surrounds
Hope Scholarship credit

By Joe Dohner
Staff Writer

Despite the proposed
tuition hike, students may
be getting sotne financial
help from their uncle:
Uncle Sam.

Title II of the Taxpayer
Relief Act of 1997 provides
a tax credit for college stu-
dents, under the Hope
Scholarship Credit and
Lifetime Learning Credit.

Some fuzziness still sur-
rounds the bill, however.

“The IRS hasn't cotne
up with guidelines yet,”
said Student Billing Direc—
tor Linda Bradford.

The language of the bill
is specific, but not specific
enough, Bradford said.

“It asks for things that
most universities don’t
keep track of," Bradford

The Hope Scholarship
Credit provides a tax credit
of up to SL500 for degree-
seeking students in their
first two years of college to
cover tuition and mandato—
ry fees. Specifically. it
reimburses a taxpayer for
all tuition and expenses up
to $1,000, and half of
tuition and expenses over
$1,000, not to exceed a
total of$l,500 for the year.

In English, a taxpayer
paying $2,000 of tuition
and fees in 1998 can claim
the full $1,500.

Civil engineering fresh-
man Steven Maggard said
he liked the idea.

able to get an education

ships can still get an educa-
tion pretty tnuch for free,”
Mag ard said.

T e credit applies to the
tax bill of whoever pays the
tuition. In the case of
dependent students, par-
ents claim the credit.

There are some impor-,
tant exceptions to the cred—
it. Students must be
enrolled as at least part
time students for a portion
of the year. The credit
won’t apply to rootn and
board, health fees, athletic
fees or books. The credit
also cannot be claimed by
students convicted of a
felony drug offense during
the fiscal year.

The IRS may determine
that other fortns of finan-
cial aid cannot be claimed
under the credit.

“Students with Pell
Grants and other scholar-
ships may not be able to
claim the credit," Bradford

The IRS and the Uni-
versity will be examining
the guidelines tnore closely
next year, but the first year
is sontethin of a grace
period, Brad ord said.

Other outstanding ques—
tions that tnust be resolved
are who qualifies as a first—
and second-year student,
how to determine who gets
to claim the credit and
what constitutes a “manda-
tory” fee.

“I think they’re going to
make stricter guidelines for
next year,” Bradford said.

The credit applies only
to tuition paid starting in

Vi’ith daily demonstrations against
the Vietnam War in 1967, high school
and college students were viewed by
many as an embarrassment in our soci—
ety. Teen-agers’ images weren't exact-
ly positive.

Ann and Paul Krouse saw a need to
somehow recognize high-achieving,
goal-oriented students throu bout the
country and tell them “goo work by
good students gets noticed too."

The medium for this message was a
directory called I/Vho’s Who Among
American High Students.

Paul Krouse, president and publish—

ducts a survey that explores the opin—
ions, attitudes, feelings and concerns
of outstanding academic achievers.
Nearly 7,500 students were demo-
graphically selected to participate in
the 1997 survey of students. National—
ly, 3,210 students completed and
returned the questionnaire. All stu—
dents in the survey have “A" or “B"
averages, and 98 percent plan to attend
college after high school graduation.
Krouse’s survey is the largest inde-
pendent sample of outstanding high
school students in the nation. T e sur-
vey provides a penetrating look into
the minds of those students who are

traditionally expected to be among
America's future leaders.

The survey covers various thought—
provoking topics, including education,
careers, sex, violence, dru and social
issues. The questions are tfzveloped by
using the input of students. distin—
guished educators and counselors frotn
across the nation.

()f the students surveyed, I3 per—
cent often suffer from depression and
27 percent have considered commit-
ting suicide. Twenty percent have
engaged in sexual intercourse and 50

ercent sometimes drink alcoholic
lievera es.

Ash ey Tucker, a freshman elemen-
tary education major who was listed i

the results.

Cats look to derail Purdu

Rood-weary l/Vz'ldcots

Nazr Mohammed used his
upper-class savvy to secure his
allotment of tickets for family and
friends traveling to the Great
Eight to see UK (4— 1) take on No.
6 Purdue (5~1) tonight at 9:30.

Mohammed, from Chicago,
and freshman Ryan Hogan, from
nearby Deerfield, 111., were both
looking to capture seats for family.
Mohammed went from teammate
to teammate, gathering what tick-
ets he needed and leaving the rest
for I logan.

“I asked them directly, and I
got to them before he did,”
Mohammed said. “As soon as
practice ended, and luckily he
wasn’t there at the time.”

“That was just a very freshman,
rookie mistake,” llogan said. “I
think I’ve been making quite a few
of them lately."

Those lucky enough to get
tickets will see a battle.

Purdue is led by senior Brad
Miller, a 6-11 center. Miller is
averaging 19.2 points and 8.3
rebounds per game.

However, he also has nearly
four turnovers a game (23 in six
games). UK figures to use its
twin towers of Mohammed and
Jamaal Magloire to contain him
and keep him out of the offensive

“Ale and Jamaal are pretty hi I
guys ourselves," Mohammed said:
“\Ve’ve got a lot more fouls to
give between me and him than just
one guy."

“It's definitely an advantage,"
Magloire said. “Our style of

LOUISVILLE — Louisville
coach Denny Crum knows where
his Cardinals need to improve as
they prepare for No. 3 North Car-
olina in the Great Eight Classic on
W'ednesday night.

Louisville (2-1) turned in some
uneven performances in the Puer-
to Rico Shootout last week, where
it lost 73-69 to Georgia Tech in
the cham )ionship. The Cardinals
beat llo stra 75—66 and Illinois

“Obviously, there were some
things we didn’t do too well, and
there were some things we did
fairly well," said Crum, whose
team faces North Carolina in
Chicago’s United Center.

The Cardinals had more
turnovers that assists in each
game, turning the ball over 49
times while handing out just 32

Sophomore forward Nate
Johnson led the way with 10
turnovers, followed by Alex
Sanders with nine.

Only freshman guard Marques
Maybin, who scored 22 points in
the opener against Ilofstra, is
avera ing in double figures (15.3).
The fi’ontline of Sanders, Johnson
and Damion Dantzler is averaging
a combined 23.7 points.

And Sanders, the tallest starter
at 6-foot-7, is averaging just 4.3


rebounds a game. Ile had only two
in a 58—57 win over Illinois.

Crum also wasn’t pleased with
the defense.

“It takes maximum effort,” he
said. “We've got a lot of room for

said. “It’s a different role for

A group of civil rights leaders
on Tuesday urged blacks to boy-
cott the University of Louisville to
protest the treatment of fired

They asked blacks to stop

Pie said the University of
Louisville labels itself an urban
university but doesn't conduct
itself accordingly or enroll enough
urban students.

Coleman and the other leaders
cited several recent events as their

Cooper at a higher salary, and the
