Sandy Bell, assistant director of
athletics for compliance, said she
was not surprised by the study’s
positive results.

“We have two administrators
here that only do compliance,”
she said. “Instead of putting out
fires (from compliance violations)
we’ve been able to do a lot of
proactive things. We felt fairly
good at that were in substantial

The study was conducted by
four subcommittees who present-
ed all of their information to a

ed byjoseph Burch, vice president
for university relations. The sub—
committees consisted of UK
administrators and faculty.

Their study focused on four
areas: governance and rules com-
pliance, academic integrity, fiscal
integrity and commitment to

The subcommittees assessed
the information gathered in each
of these areas and suggested
improvements. Because of the
athletic department’s efforts to
maintain compliance, few sugges-
tions were made.

“The committee’s recommen—
dations were quite moderate,” said

If, upon glancing up at the sky
tonight, you happen to see the
moon slowly vanish before your
eyes, don‘t be alarmed. There is
nothing to fear, although it may
seem a bit eery to watch the har-
vest moon, usually a brilliant cop-
per red, turn to black.

This evening, most of North

America will be able to witness a
total eclipse of the moon. It will
begin at 9: 12 p.m., enter the total—
ity stage at 10:19 p.m., and end at
‘2:36 am.
“Anyone who has a chance to
see it should look up," said Tom
Troland of the physics and astron—
omy department.

The subcommittee on academ-
ic inte ity studied the integration
of stu ent-athletes in the student
bod , admission and graduation,
aca emic authority and support
and scheduling events.

The committee found that the
athletic department has done an
excellent job in this area. Its only
suggestion was that the academic
integrity subcommittee continue
its meeting to help the de art—
ment maintain its high stan ards
of academics.

“The university was pleased


with these results, charfenberg—
er said.
The committee on fiscal

integrity was in charge of deter-
mining if the funding for the
department was being handled
pro erly. The committee did not
find) any faults with the budget,
and its only recommendation was
that budget revisions be handled
throughout the year instead of at
the car's end.

ied the department’s commitment
to equality. Its main concerns
were gender issues, minority
issues and the welfare of student-
athletes. It suggested that the Ath-

As a bonus for astronomy buffs,
Saturn will be located “a few
degrees southeast of the moon”,
said Troland, and will be especial—
ly bright.

A lunar eclipse occurs when the
Earth passes between the sun and
the moon. The moon then enters
into the Earth’s shadow and seems
to vanish from sight.

Troland pointed out eclipses
provided the ancients with a valu—
able clue.

“The shadow of the Earth is
round,” he said, which is clearly
visible during an eclipse.

“The only shape that casts a
round shadow is a sphere...(the
fact that the Earth is round) has
been known for millennia."

The bending leaves a sliver of

With all these heavenly special

been mystified and frightened by

he moon has been a source of

mystery and enchantment since

powers. After all, what is supposed

Going away from the lights of
Lexington does have one advan-
tage though.

“Those who do go to the
countryside will see lots of stars,”
Troland said, because the sky will
be so dark.

DENVER —- Prosecutors in the Oklahoma
bombing case can seek the death penalty
despite complaints Attorney General Janet
Reno violated department policy by announc-
ing within hours of the attack that she would
press for the bombers’ execution, a judge ruled

US. District Judge Richard Matsch also
rejected defense arguments that the federal
death penalty amounts to cruel and unusual
punishment. Timothy McVeigh and Terry

. Nichols are charged with murder and conspir—
acy in the April 19, 1995, bombing, which
killed 168 people and injured 500. No trial
date has been set. They could get the death
penalty under a 1994 federal law.

Defense lawyers argued that Reno violated

Justice Department guidelines for seeking the
death penalty when she announced on the day
of the bombing, even before an arrest had been
made, that she would press for capital punish-
ment. Department guidelines call for several
steps and discussions prior to a decision, but
none of those steps were taken before Reno’s
announcement. Defense lawyers claimed her
haste showed she was biased and their clients
were being treated unfairly.

But Matsch said federal law requires only
that prosecutors file a notice of intent to seek
the death penalty, which they did Oct. 20.

“Nothing has been submitted to show or
suggest that the notices were filed because of
any discriminatory motive, invidious classifica-
tion or improper motivation as to either defen-
dant," the judge said. Justice Department

spokeswoman Leesa Brown said: “I think it’s
significant that the court has cleared the way
for the federal government to seek the death

The Justice Department guidelines call for
a meeting among staff members in which
defense lawyers are allowed to present facts in
opposition to the death penalty. If the death
penalty is to be sought, a memorandum is pre-
pared by prosecutors that is to include a com-
prehensive discussion of the reasons.

The memo is sent to a committee for
review, and the committee makes a recom-
mendation on whether to go forward. The
defense said none of that happened because of
Reno’s hasty announcement. Stephen Jones,
McVeigh’s lawyer, said he did not plan an
immediate appeal of the decision.


Associated Prey;

LOS ANGELES —— Police in riot gear,
some on horseback, moved in and fired flash-
bang devices to disperse demonstrators
protesting a campus appearance of former Ku
Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke.

There were eight to 10 arrests, police said,
and at least one protester was clubbed over the
head as baton—wielding police in helmets and
flak jackets moved against the crowd.

Duke was at the California State Universi-
ty, Northridge, to debate civil rights leaderJoe
Hicks on a state ballot measure that would bar

racial or gender preferences in public hiring,
education and contracting.

Police said the arrests came after about 185
campus and Los Angeles police pushed the
crowd away from the student union building
where the debate was held.

Campus olice Lt. Mark Hissong claimed
several hun red protesters had tried to storm
the front door of the building.

Duke told a crowd of 800 that affirmative
action programs are unfair to whites.

An overflow audience of 430 watched on
closed—circuit television from another campus
buildin .

Insife, Duke was shouted down, booed,

hissed and laughed at when he said that affir-
mative action programs constitute “discrimi—
nation against better qualified whites.”

“When blacks faced discrimination years
ago, they called it just that, discrimination.
Now that white people face discrimination,
they call it affirmative action,” Duke said.

“I feel he should not be here,” said Amir
Andrews, 19, a black student.

“The money they put up to bring him here
could have been used for something else —
education, computers, something like that.”

Duke, whose bid for the US. Senate ended
Saturday when he finished fourth in
Louisiana’s primary, received $4,000 for
appearing, as did Hicks.

Students were upset because the money
comes from a $120 fee each student pays.

Penn State University to utter tree testing tor ‘rane drug’

By Lisa Haarlander
The Collegian (Penny/timid State U.)

Anyone at the University who believes they
may have been sexually assaulted as a result of
being slipped the “date rape drug" can now be
tested free of charge at University Health Ser—

The test will be administered if the drug
Rohypnol is suspected in a sexual assault or
whenever a patient requests the test, said Pam
Koons, assistant to the director of University
Health Services.

spokeswoman Carolyn Glynn.

“Ifthere are women who have been poten—
tially drugged, and they suspect Rohypnol or
anything else, they should immediately contact
someone,” she said. “The test will work up to
72 hours after ingesting the medication. The
ideal window is up to 48 hours.”

Victims can also call 800-720-1076 for
more information from the company about the

Although Rohypnol is illegal in the United
States, it is prescribed in Mexico and 63 other
countries to treat sleep, anxiety and panic dis-

inhibitions of the victim, who often then has
total amnesia for eight to 10 hours. To prevent
this scenario from happening, Hoffmann—La
Roche is now looking at introducing taste or
color into the drug and creating a tablet that
would dissolve more slowly in liquid.

Those changes would give eople a better
chance of detecting Rohypnol ifPit were covert—
ly slipped in their drink, Glynn said.
