Foes of Bush
seek miracles
from address

Associated Press

House complained yesterday that
President Bush's political foes have
raised unreasonable expectations for
his State of the Union address to-

But press secretary Marlin Fitz-
water said the speech will set forth
“a demonstrable economic recovery
program” and he predicted, “the
president will be re-elected no mat-
ter what happens (tonight).”

The White House itself has fos-
tered the big build-up to the speech
for almost two months. The Bush-
Quayle re-election campaign said it
would be “the defining event of the
Bush presidency."

Critics say the president has opted
for a minimal package of spending
cuts and tax increases that will do
little to bolster the confidence of re-
cession-jarred Americans.

“There's no question that some of
our political opponents have tried to
raise expectations to a point where
the bar is so high it can't be jumped
ever," Fitzwater said.

The president will offer “a very
reasoned and sound approach to the
problems we have,” including his
blueprint for “stimulating the econ-
omy in both the short term and the
long term," the spokesman said.

The pmkage, much of which has
already leaked, will include income
tax relief for the middle class in the
form of an increase in the personal
exemption for families with chil-
dren, a tax credit for first-time home
buyers and a reduction in the tax
rate on capital gains, income earned
from the sale of assets.

In addition, the president's elec-
tion-year budget will propose high-
er spending for such popular pro-
grams as Head Start, environmental
cleanup, park purchases and space

To keep the budget deficit, pro-

When President Bush

the nation in this election

The reason is Bush’s sud-

UK's Center for Prevention Re-
search recently received a
$850,000 grant from the National
Institute on Drug Abuse for four
minority scholars to research mi-
nority drug abuse.

“We are interested in drug abuse
in all people." said Richard R.
Clayton, a UK sociology professor
and scientific director of the center.
“(The four researchers) will get an
opportunity to do some research
not only with African—Americans
but also Ni gerians."

The three-year grant, which is the

Trustee bill, funding
topics for luncheon

Staff reports

State university presidents and
their governing boards are expected
to gather at the govemor’s mansion
in Frankfort today for a luncheon
meeting held by Gov. Brereton

The day‘s fare could include dis-
cussion of a legislative bill to recon-
stitute the governing boards of state
universities as well as higher educa-
tion funding.

UK President Charles Wething-
ton, who plans to attend the lunch-
eon, said he thinks the luncheon is
“one to brief the presidents and oth-
er officials on the trustees' bill.“

Rep. Ernesto Scorsone (D-
Lexington) sponsored the bill that
would wipe current university
boards and the state Council on
Higher Education clean and then
start from scratch with a commis-
sion to nominate appointees. The
bill passed easily in the House of
Representatives but is expected to

have a tougher time in the Senate.

Jones has indicated a willingness
to compromise on the bill to allow
at least pan of the incumbent trus-
tees and regents to be reappointed
to their respective boards.

Another topic that may arise to-
day is university funding. Jones has
said that more cuts in higher-
education are possible.

University presidents met with
the governor several weeks ago.
Wethington said, but “discussions
at that time about budget cuts were

Kenneth Walker. finance director
for the state Council on Higher Ed-
ucation, said he would be surprised
if any announcements are made to-
day regarding university budget
cuts since Jones requested a dead-
line extensiOn for presenting his
budget proposals. Today would
have been the deadline for present-
ing the budget, but the legislature
granted him nine more days to
complete the plan.

UK sorority
presents gift
for research
of disease

Assistant News Editor

“Kentucky is a great place to
grow older," read Phyllis Markley,
president of the Sigma Kappa foun-
dation, to a room full of women
whose faces were unmarked by the
lines of age.

However, Alzheimer's disease —
the degenerative disease of the cen-
tral nervous system characterized
by senility — was foremost on their
minds last night when the national
Sigma Kappa social sorority pre-
sented $10,000 to the Sanders-
Brown Center on Aging.

Markley presented the grant [0
Deborah Danner, senior research
associate, now in her third year of
working with Alzheimer's.

Danner studies facial coding to
determine the emotions of Alzhei-
mer‘s patients, some bedridden
with impaired or loss of speech, in
order to care for them adequately.

“I think what surprised me most
was that from reading the literature
I thought there was a flattening ef-
fect, that as the disease progressed
you actually had very little expres~
sion and what we found was
very robust expression of happi-
ness, sadness and pain," Danner

Danner does not work on this
project alone. Heather Horn, Evy
Whitlatch and Tera Pauley, three
Sigma Kappas who currently are
interns at the center on aging. plan
to participate in the research by
conducting interviews with patients
and care-givers and scoring video
tapes of patient‘s facial move-

“Alzheimer’s is a horrible dis-
ease . If you can learn what
they‘re trying to communicate non-

Van Horn recovering from loss by getting UK degree

Staff Writer

Lurking in the darkest comer of
Darrin Van Hom's mind is his re-
cent loss to Iran Barkley — a defeat
that removed the International Box-
ing Federation Championship belt
from his waist.

Anyone who watched the fight
knows it wasn't just a loss. Etched
vividly in their minds is Barkley
pounding Van Horn, knocking him
around the ring like a tattered doll.

Barkley finally dethroned Van
Horn when he knocked him down
for a third time in the second round.
Barkley now reigns as the IBF su-
per middleweight champion aftcr a
paltry six minutes or so of work.

Van Horn still has a little memen-
to from the fight — a yellow discol-
oration under his right eye. He also
has a large lump on his right hand,
his dominant hand.

“I tried to pull out of the fight the
day of the fight," he said. “I had a
hairline fracture in my right hand.
but because it wasn‘t a clean break.
I couldn’t pull out."

Van Horn said he didn’t get out
of the hospital until 4 am. on fight
day. His title defense didn‘t begin
until 11:45 pm.

“I only got about three hours of
sleep," he said. “When Iran hit me.
I didn’t even feel the punches. Since



UK senior Darrin Van Horn. who lost his IBF super middleweight ti-
tle to Iran Barkley, plans to graduate from UK in May.

I was at the hospital so long. I
didn't get any rest. A fighter’s legs
are the most important part of his
body and I just didn‘t have any.”

Van Hom (47-3; 27 KO) said he
still could have called off the
match, but he felt he was capable of
beating his opponent.

“I'd have bet my house on it,"
Van Horn said. “Barkley‘s a full-
blown idiot to begin with, but I
can't take anything away from him

because he beat me where it counts
in the ring.

“I didn’t think he was as bad as
everyone thought he was. Before
the fight. people acted as if he hung
the moon or something."

Barkley said after the fight. “I
could have knocked him out even if
I was drunk."

Van Horn defeated Lindell
Holmes May 18, 1991, capturing
the IBF title. He said Lexington had
little (I no idea until a local spons-
caster announced by mistake that he
had just won the championship. He
said the sponscaster apparently had
watched a rerun of the fight.

“I was glad somebody fuiaily
mentioned I won.” Van Horn said.
“I mean. I had won a second world
championship, and two months lat-
er (the sportscaster) didn’t know.
and it's his job to know. At least he
reported the fight; the others didn't
report a damn thing."

Van Horn has, at times. been a
media darling in Lexington and at
others a whipping boy.

“I’m not pissed off," he said.
“I‘m not upset. I've come to realize
a little more of how the world

Van Horn said the Lexington me-
dia were responsible for the publici-
ty he did receive, especially in the

“I'm tickled pink for what the
media here has done for me," Van
Horn said. “They’ve reported right
down the line. objective or bad. My
career has gone up and down. how-
ever. Sometimes I think they are

too critical. I’m not resentful. I just
take it for what it‘s wrath.

“For every bad word they have
said about me. there have been 50
good ones. They write or say what
they think people want to hear. and
I can respect it, but it doesn’t mean
I have to like it."

When Barkley stripped Van Horn
of his title, the New York Boxing
Commission suspended Van Horn.
The commission has a rule: When a
fighter is counted out. he isn't al-
lowed to box for 60 days in New

“It was such a rude awakening,"
he said. “I really didn't want to
open the letter when it came.”

So where does he go from here?

“For starters, I’m going to keep
living in Lexington. I love every-
thing about it and hope to live here
for the rest of my life."

He's taking his last six hours at
UK this semester and will graduate
in May with a broadcast journalism
degree, something he is proud of.

“If I still had the title, I would be
the only champion that had a col-
lege degree." he said. “(.lames)
‘Bonecrusher' Smith has a degree,
but he finished school before he be-
came big in the sport."

At first. Van Horn said. he didn't
take college seriously because it
was “just a thing to do at the time."
But he hinted that he not only got
an education as the “schoolboy"
but also used school as a diversion
to keep himself out of trouble.

“That's why boxers get in so
much trouble," he said. “They run
in the morning and train in the af-
ternoon. They work three hours a
day and have nothing else to do ex-
cept things they shouldn’t.

“School takes my mind off box-
ing,” he said. “The times I've lost,
I’ve been out of school."

Ingrained in Van Ham’s mind is
the sense. the knowledge, that he
could win the championship back
again. In his heart is the hope.

“There are no two ways about
it." he said. “I will win my title
back, and I'll do it sooner titan eve-
ryone thinks."

Van Horn won his first title, the
IBF junior middleweight champi-
onship. Feb. 5. 1989.

He moved up to a heavier weight
division after losing a 12-round de-
cision to Gianfranco Rossi. He then
lost a rematch to Rossi. who has de-
fended his title against 11 other

The club boosted its season
record to 14-5 with road victories
over North Carolina. Duke. Mary-
land, and N.C. State.

“To get four wins was really
nice.” senior setter Dean Sheets

In the fourth match of the week-
end. the team split the first four
games with N.C. State. The fifth
game went to rally scoring, in
which either team can score — no
matter which is serving.

N.C. served at 16-16. After the
initial pass, Sheets set to junior
middle hitter James Gordon. who
killed over two Wolfpack blockers
for the game and the sweep.

Meet the beautiful, unworldly
Billie Holiday, a trademark garde-
nia in her hair, her dog “Mister" in
the foreground. In another shot.
“Lady Day” — her head back, neck
arched, throat stretched — is pos-
sessed by that ecstatic, transcendent
jazz spirit that transfixed her fans.

Other portraits include Huddie
“Leadbelly” Ledbetter, the Louisia-
na murderer, whose music got him
a reprieve; Louis Armstrong, whom
everyone thought of as a friend
even though he could never remem-
ber names and called everyone
“Pops;” Nat “King” Cole; Woody
Herman; “Sassy" Sarah Vaughan;
Charlie “Yardbird” Parker; a young
Miles Davis.

The exhibit is a wonderful way to
disc0ver and meet the legends Of
Jazz, what many consider to be

SGA referendum
gives students
rare opportunity

Once in a great while, a good idea walks into the Student Govem-
ment Association offices — an idea that can change the way the stu-
dent govemment conducts its business. SGA Vice President Keith
Sparks proposed a referendum on Friday that will give students an
opportunity to voice their opinion about election reforms.

The sweeping election reforms had been defeated by the SGA
Senate Wednesday night. The new election procedures would re-
move the current spending cap on SGA elections and would replace
it with limits on where campaign literature could be placed.

As Senator at Large Ashley Boyd stated from her own experience,
senators cheat on spending limits. And there is no way to catch
them. The limitation on placement of campaign literature will. in ef-
fect, curtail the amount of money a candidate can spend. without
implicitly stating a dollar amount.

SGA President Scott Crosbie correctly stated that the senate has
shown it is incapable of regulating itself; it cannot overcome the
conflict of interest that exists in making its own rules. Because of
that conflict, the executive branch has enacted a seldom-used consti-









tutional provision for a special referendum.
