for summit

Associated Press

WASHINGTON —- U.S. and Soviet
experts met yesterday to plan next
month’s summit, as a U.S. official
said General Secretary Mikhail S.
Gorbachev would limit his stay to
three days and spend all of the time
in the nation’s capital.

The planning will continue over
the next two weeks, and while ar-
rangments are “complicated," they
will be worked out in time for the
opening of Gorbachev's talks with
President Reagan on Dec. 7, said
the official, who demanded anonym-

Reports out of Moscow carried by
some American newspapers quoted
unidentified Soviet officials as say-
ing Gorbachev might be interested
in staying longer and having more
time to get his views across to the
American people. But the U.S. offi-
cial here told The Associated Press
that a threeday visit was a settled

White House spokesman Marlin
Fitzwater also said that there had
been no indications from the Soviets
that Gorbachev would stay beyond
the summit meeting.

The planning sessions are being
conducted at the White House.

White House Communications Di-
rector Thomas C. Griscom, Colin
Powell, deputy national security ad-
viser, and Rozanne L. Ridgway, as-
sistant secretary of state for Euro—
pean affairs, met with their Soviet
counterparts yesterday.

American and Soviet negotiators
in Geneva are still wrangling over a
handful of nuclear disputes that
stand in the way of Reagan’s first
arms control accord with Moscow.

As a result, U.S. officials said
Tuesday. Secretary of State George
P. Shultz may have to go to Geneva
before Thanksgiving to try to wrap
up the pact with his Soviet coun-
terpart, Foreign Minister Eduard A.

it would be their fourth round of
talks in three months and would un-
derscore a strenuous effort by the
Reagan administration.

SDC program to recognize student organizations that raise money for UK

Staff Writer

The Student Development Council
will gain new partners in the spring
by rewarding organizations on cam-
pus that raise money for University
projects. said James Rose, SDC

A program called “Partners for
Excellence“ is designed to recognize
student organizations that contribute
money to UK through fund-raising
projects, Rose said.

“Most organizations give to phi-
lanthropies,“ Rose said. “We like to
show that UK is a philanthropy."

Amy Figg, SDC public relations
chairperson, said there are three
ways for student organizations to
participate in the program: contrib-
ute money to a University program

which is already established; donate
10 percent or more of a current
fund-raising campaign to UK: or
sponsor a fund-raiser in which all
proceeds are donated to UK.

The money donated to UK will
fund University projects or schol-
arships, said Lynn Zaremba, SDC
campus coordinator chairperson.

Organizations can compete in the
fraternity division, sorority division,
residence hall division. funded-stu-
dent organizations division or non-
funded student organizations divi-

“The phone-asthons of each col-
lege are being incorporated in the
Partners for Excellence program,“
Zaremba said.

Awards will be given in three cat-
egories. The first category recogniz-

vision as a partner. and the winner
will receive a plaque. The second
category recognizes organizations in
the upper 10 percent of each division
as an associate partner. The third
division recognizes organizations
that finish in the upper third of each
division as a contributor.

Rose said SDC's goals are to raise
money and to create student pride.

“if students care about and help
UK while they are here. they are
more willing to give back to UK
when they graduate," Rose said.


Ortega asks for peace talks with U.S.

WASHINGTON —— Nicaraguan
President Daniel Ortega declared
yesterday his government is fully
committed to complying with the
Central America peace agreement
and he renewed his offer to hold
peace talks with the United States.

“Nicaragua is ready to comply 100

t with the agreement," Orte-

ga declared in a dramatic hour-long

appearance before the General As-

sembly of the Organization of Amer-

ican States durim his first visit to

Washirgton in eight years. Ortega

wore a conservative gray suit in-

stead of his uual outfit for public
appearances -- combat fatigues.

gan's charge before the same audio

An overflow crowd filled the main
meeting room at OAS headquarters.

were all six members of the contra
leadership; they listened intently as
Ortega spoke. Afterward, one of the
most veteran contra leaders, Adolfo
Calero. called Ortega's speech
“lengthy, boring and without real

Ortega's call for a direct dialcgue
with the United States was rejected
immediately by the U.S. ambassa-
dor to the OAS, Richard McCor-
mack, who said that Reagan had
laid out strict conditions for reopen-
ing diplomatic contacts with Sandi-
nista officials.

Ortega said that although Nicara-
meet its commitments under the re-
gional peace ayeement he signed
last Aim-t, the United States has
undercut the accord by sending
weapons and other equipment on 140

resupply flights to the country‘s con-
tra rebels since then.

He said the weapons include
ground-to-air missiles which are
threatening domestic and interna-
tional air traffic in Nicaragua. U.S.
spy flights also have continued, he

Responding to Reagan‘s charge.
Ortega said that on two key el-
ements of the peace plan — a total
amnesty for political prisoners and
a lifting of the state of emergemy —
Nicaragua would comply only when
an international observer team veri-
fies that outside support for the con-
tra rebels has ceased.

The peace agreement was de-
signed by Nicaragua and four Cen-
tral American neiflibon - Gute-
mala, El Salvador. Honduras and
Costa Rica. Among other measures,
the agreement calls for steps toward
democratization in Nicaragua and
an end to U.S. aid tothecontrn.

Much of Ortega’s speech was de~

voted to a long recitation of the 1906
ruling by the international Court of
Justice. which accused the United
States of violating international law
by supporting the contras and it de-
manded an end to all future aid.

The United States has ignored the
ruling, contending that the court
lacks jurisdiction in such disputes.

The OAS is a hemispherewide
group which holds a general assem-
bly each year. Member states nor-
mally are represented by their for-
eign ministers; Ortega is the first
president ever to head his nation‘s
delegation to such a meeting.

The large gather-tr! remained at-
lent when Ortega was introduced but
applauded at the conclusion.

Later, Ortega went to Capitol Hill
with Home Speaker Jim Wright, D-
Texas, who has been involved in
Central Amelcan peace efforts.

Examiner says

heart disease
killed athlete

Associated Press

LOUISVILLLE — A rare congeni-
tal heart disease caused the death
last month of UK track athlete Ro-
driq McCravy. the state’s chief med-
ical examiner said yesterday.

Dr. George Nichols said McCravy.
19, died Oct. 28 as a result of idiopa-
thic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis,
or IHSS, which thickens the wall di-
viding the two sides of the heart and
may eventually cause it to stop beat-

The disease is estimated to afflict
one out of every 15,000 people. Nich-
ols said at a news conference.

He said he sees only three or four
deaths from the disease each year in

“The majority of people with this
disease do not die suddenly. nor do
they die from the disease.” said Dr.
Doug Ackermann, a pathologist who
specializes in heart disorders.

Ackermann said the disease is dif-
ficult to detect during normal physi-
cal examinations and many people
may never know they have it,

People under 30 are most likely to
suffer the disease's effects. which
include shortness of breath, chest

pain, fainting spells or, as in McCra-
vy‘s case, sudden death. Ackermann

There is no conclusive evidence
that strenuous physical activity ag-
gravates the disease or increases
the chance of dying from it. he said.
it was difficult to determine whether
McCravy‘s death was made more
likely by his athletic training or by
the fact that he was young, he

Nichols said that if McCravy had
suffered other effects of the disease,
such as chest pains. he may not
have been able to distinguish them
from the normal discomfort of train-

McCravy, a former state cham-
pion hurdler at Louisville‘s Trinity
High School, was a hurdler and a
member of record-setting relay
teams at UK.

Nichols said because the disease is
hereditary in one of four cases. he
has urged members of McCravy's
family to get physical examinations
as a precaution.

The effects of the disease can be
treated with medication to relax the
enlarged heart wall and control ir-
regular beating of the heart. he said.

UK and the University of Louis-

from the Kentucky State Police to

Rich get richer as Cats land 3 hoop recruits

Sports Editor

Basketball coaches in the South-
eastern Conference may soon be
pleading with Eddie Sutton to sign a
disarmanent treaty.

The UK coach followed up this
year 5 banner crop of six freshmen
by signing a trio of highly touted
prep players to national letters of in-
tent yesterday.

The three who inked their names
on the Wildcats' dotted line include
Chris Mills, Shawn Kemp and Sean

“We feel like we have had a bonus
recruiting class," Sutton said last
night during a telephone interview

from the SEC media convention in

“We‘ve had back-to-back groups
now who we feel can carry on the
Kentucky basketball tradition.
We‘re elated. We needed to have an-
other outstanding group because we
lose five seniors this year.“

Heading the list is Mills. a 6-foot-7
forward from hos Angels, Ca.. who
is rated one of the top 10 high school
players in the nation. Mills averaged
25.2 points. 12 rebounds and 2.1 as-
sists as a junior and was named
Player of the Year in California.

“A lot has been written and said
about him." Sutton said. "Chris
Mills is an excellent shooter who can
also pass the basketball and has
wonderful foot speed. "

Mills uses his height to play in-
side. but it's no secret he prefers to
play out on the perimeter. That’s no
problem with Sutton.

“He can play the two or three po-
sition," Sutton said. “He will be
playing on the perimeter and will be
expected to play guard."

UK recruiters crossed the Ohio
River and snatched two Hoosiers

from under the nose of Bobby
Knight. One is a big man, the other
a guard.

Shawn Kemp from Elkhart will
provide the additional muscle inside.
The 6-10 Kemp averaged 25 points
and 14.4 rebounds as a junior. He al-

record for points (1,483) and blocked
shots (300).

Passage of agenda
in state legislature
a test for president

UK President David Roselle’s first few months here
have been relatively tranquil. Roselle has received pre-
dominantly positive responses as he has literally traveled
across the state and this University telling people what
needs to be done to make UK a first-rate academic institu-

In a recent column in The Courier-Journal, Dick Wilson
referred to the first few months of Roselle’s presidency as
a “honeymoon“ period. It is a time when everything Rose-
lle does is met with a positive response. He can do no
wrong and is the savior for our academic woes.

That period is officially over.

Last Thursday in Louisville, the Council on Higher Edu-
cation made its recommendations to the governor and the
General Assembly for higher education funding.

Roselle has said over and over that the key to making
this University a truly great institution is attracting qual—
ity faculty to UK. The only way to accomplish this objec—
tive, he said, is by raising faculty salaries and providing
better resources, such as with computers and the library.

Specifically. Roselle has said that he wants faculty sala-
ries to increase by about 20 percent over the next two
years. The first 8 to 10 percent. he said, would be a “catch-
up“ figure. The second 8 to 10 percent would be a “keep-
up“ figure. UK faculty on the Lexington campus are cur-
rently paid about $3,700 less than faculty at other bench-
mark universities.

There's no doubt that faculty salaries are an important
factor in ensuring the quality of an institution. It is faculty
who produce the research, academic articles and books
that enhance an institution. It is also a quality faculty who,
in part, attract bright students to attend a university.

But Roselle faces an uphill battle in securing funding
from the state General Assembly and governor. Estimates
have placed a budget shortfall for the state at $450 million.
A budget shortfall for higher education funding has been
estimated at $9.4 million.

Getting any money from a financially strapped state
will be a great test for Roselle early in his presidency.
Roselle’s agenda of attracting quality faculty to UK, as
well as making several other improvements, is sound and
needed here.

However, such an agenda can only be successful with
strong financial backing. It is imperative that Roselle and
Charles Wethington, who is UK's primary lobbyist with the
legislature, work to push the CHE recommendations
through the General Assembly.

If they can‘t. it will be a serious setback for Roselle’s
presidency early on. Rest assured, there will be several
battles after this one for Roselle and his staff.

But this first battle for funding is especially important
not only for Roselle, but also for higher education.

The honeymoon‘s over, Mr. President. Welcome to real-
