Over a five—year period, the number
of women participating in sorority rush
has been decreasing, and the Panhel-
lenic Council has decided to try and
change that.

Before, the women moved in on Sat—
urday, unpacked if they had time and
immediately began the rush process, vis-
iting different sorority houses in the
first of the four rounds.

During all of the parties, the women
were required to wear outfits that were
more formal than, plain shorts and T-
shirts, and during the third and fourth
rounds the were expected to dress in
church clot es.

Now, after the Panhellenic Rush
Council altered the process, the women
can wear casual clothes to match the
casual atmosphere until the final round.

“We want to et away from the
stereotypes,” said Shannon Corley, pan-
hellenic rush chair.

Now, after the changes, the rushees
will be required to participate in a com-



munity: service roject with the Lexing—
ton sc ools on aturday afternoon. Cor-
ley said this addition is to let the girls
get acquainted before the parties begin.

“They’ll get to know each other
there,” Corley said. Two members of
each sorority will also be present at the
event to help with any questions the
rushees may have.

In addition to change in the first day
events and dress, the process also will be
different during the parties. For exam—
ple, everyone will sit in chairs now,
instead of having only the rushees sit in
chairs. In addition, on one day the entire
focus will be on community service and
the members of the sororities will not
do skits.

“Now we’re trying to focus on con—
versation and etting to know people,"
Corley said. “ hat’s what it’s supposed
to be for.”

The council hopes that the combina-
tion of the entire day devoted to
explaining the community service aspect
of the sororities and the first day service
project will send the message to the
rushees that sororities have purposes

beyond that of their stereotypes.

“We are social, but we're not all
about social,” Corley said.

With the changes, the sororities hope
to portray a more accurate picture of
what Greek life really involves, and
show the rushees that there are things
about it that the stereotypes don‘t
include, said Susan “'est, assistant dean
of students and panhellenic advisor.

West said that in addition to giving
them an excellent source of friends,
sororities also offer women opportuni—
ties in leadership, community service
and academics.

“They (prospective rushees) don‘t
realize that looking from outside," she

West hopes the chan res make it casi—
er for prospective members to join, and
that this small change is just an indica—
tion of the steps UK's sororities are tak—
ing towards modernizing their rituals.

The change in rush policy is an
example of the sororities, “trying to
meet the needs of women, because col—
lege women’s needs have changed," she

Taking care of three children is a job in itself, but
taking care of 5,500 can be an overwhelming task.

That’s how many students Debra Hazard cared
for in her job as director of residence life. Now,
deciding that she wants to spend more time with her
family, Hazard is resigning her position.

Hazard said that she found her position exciting,
but after two and a half years, she has found that
family life takes priority.

“I only have one opportunity to raise my chil-
dren," Hazard said. “I have never wanted to be a

ing the NCAA Tournament where she worked regu~
larly into the morning hours.

“After the ending of the (championship) game, I

Hazard said her job as director was rewarding
because “you get to meet a lot of people.”

She said that working with undergraduates and
graduates is different than handling administration.

But Hazard has some advice for her replacement.

“There are going to be some long hours,” she
said, “because there are a lot of things that need to
be in place and continue to be in place."

Brandon Tosti, president of the Residence Life
Association, said that Hazard has helped turn around
the residence life program.

released, and the former director, Bob Clay, com~
mitted suicide a couple of months before the investi-
gation was completed.

“Debra was chosen to get (Residence Life) back
on the right track,” Tosti said. “I feel that she has
done that. I think she’s ready to move on."

Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs James Kuder
said Hazard revived the once—ailing division.

“I did not want to see her go." Kuder said. “She's
done an excellent job in residence halls and brought
stabili to Residence Life.“

Ku er has started looking for a replacement and
has narrowed the search to four candidates.

Tosti, who had a chance to interview the appli-
cants, said that it will take a positive attitude and
energy to fill the vacant spot. Consistency is another
aspect that Tosti wants to see in the new director.

According to Jesse eil, resident-
elect of the local chapter of e AAUP,
UK faculty are hard-working individu-
als who deserve fair salaries.

“Faculty should be compensated in
a manner that is fair,” Weil said.

“The goal of the report is to edu-
cate individuals to the fact that UK


faculty make what they do.”

Erin Colter, an undeclared sopho-
more from Murray, Ky., feels that UK
faculty should be paid more.

“Where is socie ’s priorities when
those who provide e most invaluable
service make so little financially?”
Colter said.

Colter thinks Kentucky will contin-
ue to lag behind in national rankings
until it begins to invest more in educa-
tion. .
“Until education is made a number
one priority in this state, our state will
continue to be at the bottom of nation-
al studies and surveys,” Colter said.

mm Israeli bombers
continue to hit lcbanon

BEIRLT, Lebanon —- Israeli warplanes turned
to a new target in Lebanon yesterday, attacking the
heavily fortified base of a Palestinian group in hills
outside Beirut after 11 days of focusing on Hezbol—
lah guerrillas.

On the 12th day of fighting, Israeli air force jets
hit a command base for the Popular Front for the
Liberation of Palestine. Like Hezbollah, the Popu-v
lar Front opposes the Middle East peace process.
The Syria—based group has frequently attacked
Israel over the years but has not been directly
involved in the recent fighting.

The choice of targets suggested growing Israeli
frustration over efforts to pin down the elusive
Hezbollah guerrillas, who are largely invisible in
the valleys of south Lebanon.

The raid was the first in or near Beirut since
Israeli warplanes rocketed Hezbollah strongholds
in the southern suburbs last Tuesday.

mm Senate set to debate term limits

\VASHINGTON —— The Senate staged a
desultory debate yesterday on a proposed constitu-
tional amendment to impose term limits on mem—
bers of Congress, with a pivotal test vote set for

The measure is expected to fall short ofthe 60
votes needed to end debate, and Senate Majority
Leader Bob Dole said it’s possible that will be the
end of the proposal for the year.

“The freshmen are telling me they just want one
vote," he said yesterday, as first—term Republican
lawmakers led the charge. “\Ve can have more if
they want them."

Term limits enjoy widespread public support, as
measured in the polls.

But the House rejected the measure last year.
and the prospects for approval are dim in the Sen—
ate, where the bill has become cnsnared in partisan

Most Democrats in the Senate are opposed to
the measure, while many Republicans express their
support. Democrats tried to gain political leverage
with a pro osal to make term limits retroactive.
But Repub icans, particularly those with consider-
able seniority, would just as soon not have to vote
on that, and are using their parliamentary preroga—
tives to block it from coming to a vote.

The measure would limit members of the Sen—
ate to two six—year terms, and members of the
House to six two-year terms, effective when ratified
by Congress and the necessary three—fourths of the
state legislatures.

Cats boast talented

By Chris Easterllng
Ann-rant Sport: Editor

The UK football team conclud-
ed its spring practice Saturday
with an intrasquad scrimmage
held at Commonwealth Stadium.
For UK coach Bill Curry, the
scrimmage ave him and his
coaching stagf an opportuni to
assess individual players at di fer-
ent posmon.

Here is a breakdown by posi—
tion of the Wildcat offense as it
lined up Saturday:


For the time being, Billy Jack
Haskins is the clear—cut choice as
the starting signal-caller.

Of course, that could all change
by the time UK lines up a ainst
Louisville on Aug. 31. That’s
because “The Golden Bo ',” fresh-
man Tim Couch, will make his tri-
umphant arrival on campus.

“Billy Jack Haskins had a
remarkable spring,” UK coach Bill
Curry said. “Going into (Satur-
day‘s) scrimmage, in four of the
five scrimma es we had, (the
coaching stafg thought he was
outstan ing.”

Haskins completed 4—of.6 pass-
es Saturday for 54 yards.

After Haskins and Couch,
mediocre is about the best word to
describe the rest of the quarter-
backs on the UK roster. Redshirt
freshman Greg Hergott went 0—
for-6 in the passing department in
the Cats’ final spring scrimmage.

Hergott showed the ability to
run the ball, which could help him
down the road. He ained 33
yards on five carries, t e second
highest rushing total on the White

The White team consisted of
the second and third team offense
and defense.

Ray McLaurin has the unenvi-
able task of re lacing Moe
Williams, the Sout eastern Con-
ference’s leading rusher from a
year ago.

McLaurin has shown in the
past that he has the ability to be
the featured back for UK. Against
LSU last season, McLaurin rushed
for 107 yards and the go-ahead
touchdown in the Cats’ 24—16 win.

mourners nearly equaled the size
of his hometown, Nebraska quar—
terback Brook Berringer was
eulo 'zed yesterday by a sobbing

Friends, family and teammates
filled a high school fieldhouse for
a joint funeral service in which a
Nebraska football helmet rested
on Berrin er’s casket.

“I can onestly say that there
was nobody I coached that had
better character than Brook
Berringer,” Nebraska football
coach Tom Osborne said. “He
was just who he ap cared to be,
and I’m certainly a better person
for knowing him.”

Nebraska quarterbacks coach
Turner Gill addressed his eulogy
to Berringer.

“You were the definition of a
team player,” Gill said. “I was so

mud to have coached you and to

liave known you. You were a

eat example of how to live your

Five L'K students represented
L'K in the National Collegiate
shooting competition held last
weekend in Atlanta. More than 40
teams across the nation participat—
ed in the four—day event.

The students, all members of

UK's skeet and trap team, earned
the best cumulative scores in the
five—year history of the team.

Rick Seldar, a physics graduate
student, and materials engineering
senior M. “'illiam Garrett com—
peted in the American skeet event
along with team captain and phys-
ical education sophomore Trey

Staviski shot a personal best
score to helping solidify the ( ats
as the nation s most— improved
shooting team.

In the international skeet event
Jason Riley and fellow agriculture
sophomore Jim Murdock repre-
sented the (lats. Both competitors
shot their averages, but finished
out of contention.

Sedlar and Murdock competed

in the sporting clays division of

the event, finishing third and
fourth, respectively.

UK’s skeet and trap team has
been an official UK club sport
since 1992 and its members travel
around the nation and compete at
their own expense.

Any interested student who has
the capability of shooting any clay
sport is welcome to participate in
team practices and possibly cont
