A dancer of steel and aluminum
is immortalized in one moment of
time; the beauty ofa sunrise is cap-
tured in hues of gold and red; sun—
light illuminates blocks of stone

and lass piled in lovely protrusion.

T ese and other works sculpted
from brass, glass, aluminum and
steel decorating the campus are not
the work of seasoned professionals
but of a few extremely talented UK
art students.

The six sculptures, strategically

placed about campus, are the result
of the Art in Public Places program,
started by Jack Graun, art depart<
ment chairman, in 1989.

The program evolved frotn the
Spring Arts Festival held annually
here at UK.

“During the festival, students
were invited to display their work at
certain places around campus. The
art received such a positive response
from the college community, that we
decided to make art work a perma~
nent part of our campus,” Graun

“Art is everywhere,“ he said. “The
sculptures are designed to enhance the
campus and to raise awareness about
the importance of art in our lives."

The purpose of the Art in Public
Places program is two—fold.

“Many peo le don’t 0 to muse-
ums, because t ey don‘t have time or
are intimidated. The whole idea
behind the Art in Public Places pro-
gram is to bring art to the people,"
Graun said.

Another purpose of the program
is to allow art students to take on a
more professional attitude about
their work.

“Seeing their work in a ublic
place is a wonderful initiative fi’u the
students and gives them a real sense
of achievement," said Garry Bibbs,
an associate professor of art studio

artist’s training."

The artist is responsible for
everything concerning his or her
sculpture, from the original proposal
to the placing of the work. The stu—
dent also absorbs expenses not cov-
ered by funding or donations.

“It can get pretty expensive, but
it's worth it. It was an honor to
have my piece selected” said
Clifton Cox, an art senior whose
untitled sculpture graces the lawn
between the Fine Arts Building and
President Charles \Vethington’s

triangular shapes took about two
months to complete and has been in
place for about a year.

“When it comes time for my
sculpture to be replaced, I can take it
and put it in outdoor art shows or
whatever," Clifton said. “It‘s a great
addition to my portfolio.”

The sculptures are changed once
or twice a year, and a new collection
is expected to be placed this spring.

“( )ne of the best things about the
program is that the pieces are contin—
ually being changed," said Louis
Swift, dean of Undergraduate Stud—
ies. “This adds to the beauty of the

Students battle with
anorexia, bulimia

By Brandy Berry
Staff” 'ritcl'


The dreaded “freshmen Ii" are not a problem for
some college students.

Because they will never be found at the (Iommons eat—

They will be found on the treadmills. They will be
found purging.

liccausc each year lo percent of collegiate women in
America and seven million women overall show some
signs of having an eating disorder, said Dr. Laurie
llmnphries, L'K Medical (Ienter psychiatrist specializing
in eating disorders. 'l‘wo—thirds will battle the disease for
a lifetime, while one-third will be cured through treat-
ment and counseling.

Anorexia nervosa and bulimia are complex. life—threat—

and sometimes death.

“l‘iating disorders are extremely common in collegiate
women," llumphries said. “There are many more who
are afflicted in a college population than in a high school

The causes of anorexia nervosa and bulimia are as dif
ferent as the diseases themselves. l lulnphries attributes
the college atmosphere to exacerbating the diseases in
some cases.

“If there is a sorority house with one or two who have
eating disorders, they may influence others," llumphries
said. “Pretty soon, you have a ‘group phenomena' where
everyone is severely restricting food intake."

However, the cause of eating disorders is multifactoral.

“Those with low self-esteem and those under serious
stress are susceptible," llumphries said. “Others may have
personal problems such as with the family or a boyfriend,
which can eventually progress into a disorder."

Anorexia victims typically compulsivcly exercise and
severely restrict daily caloric intake to the point of fasting
for days at a time in some cases.

Bulimics practice “binging and purging," which
involves eating excessive amounts of food in a very small
alnount of time and then making themselves throw up.

The problems associated with the diseases are not

“Anorexia has the highest death rate of any psychiatric
illness." llumphries said. “The actual percentage of
deaths associated with bulimia is not known, but the mun—
ber is thought to be quite high."

()ne percent of anorexics will die in their initial battle
with the disease, but 18 to 30 percent of the victims who
beat the first onset will die from recurring bouts by the
age of“. llumphries said.

Anorexics suffer from loss of hair. osteoporosis
(decrease in bone density), problems with poor nutrition
and loss of a menstruation cycle for as long as they are
restricting food intake.

Bulimics often stiffer from electrolyte problems
attributed to excessive purging, intestinal and throat tis—
sue damage, and dental erosion.

“Of all the fads which have affected mankind, none
seems tnore difficult to explain than the desire of Ameri—
can women for the barberpole figure," the late Dr. Morris
l’ishbein, longtime editor of the _7oiirnal ofthe American

“In many ways we have become a ‘celebrity culture'
where the emphasis is placed on thinness," llumphries
said. "Many of the models maintain an unhealthy body
weight and image."

“People to People” Conference,
sponsored by the National Con-

People to eople Conference to
give young people a chance to
express their ideas and concerns
about race.

At the Student Center from 8
am. until 2 p.m., 290 students,
teachers and administrators are

expected to participate in today's
activities. The theme of this year’s
conference is “Looking Through
Our Cultural Lenses.”

“The purpose is to understand
how we look through our cultural
lenses, which are developed
through our family and environ-
ment, said Karen Kendrick,
National Conference Program

“It is about how we view our-
selves and others. Some things are

wonderful, but we also have blind

c assify people.”

The conference focuses on a
series of activities to facilitate dis-
cussion between students, rather
than a bunch of lectures.

Interaction with other students
will help students understand the
likenesses and differences they
have with other peo le and how
their backgrounds in uence their
perception of others.

Event coordinators think by
understanding their “cultural
lenses,” students will recognize
any biases they might hold. Then
they can widen their perspectives

The wires running to Boyd and
Patterson are copper.

“It’s an older technology and
it’s slower,” Friskney said.

Of course, running fiber optic
cables to every residence hall isn’t
cheap. Rieman said that the work-
ing estimate is about $5 million.

Since the housing office gets all
its revenue from student housing
fees, it would have to pass a bond
issue to pa for the wiring, Rie-
man said. hat would mean about
a $100 increase in student housing
fees, assumin the $5 million esti—
mate is roughiy correct.

This shouldn’t increase the
technology fee, and despite the
increase, Rieman expects that
more students will seek on-cam—
pus housin in the coming years
despite the 'gher price.

The project could take as long
as three years, or as short as one,
Rieman said.

Once the residence halls have
an external connection, the indi-
vidual rooms have to be wired.
UK communications and net-
working services and the housing
office are presently considering
two options.

The first is standard ethernet
wiring within the residence hall,
and the second is wireless commu—


“We really need to figure out
what works best.” Friskney said.

Wireless networking isn’t truly
wireless. The wireless part of the
network is the connection
between a PC and the network,
which uses either radio waves or
infrared light to make the connec-

“A year ago, wireless wasn’t
even an option,” Rieman said.

Rieman and Friskney said the
time a technology is expected to
last is also a key consideration in
how to network the residence

“(Picking a short-lived tech-
nology) would be like aying for

our groceries with a ong term
can. You’ve eaten them, but
you’re still paying for them,” Rie-
man said.

The other two criteria are cost
and continued performance.
Although wireless connections are
more expensive than standard
wire jacks, the cost of wirin a
building with wireless rts is E255
than that of installing e wires for
standard jacks.

Rieman plans to travel to the
University of Tennessee at
Knoxville, which uses both wire-
less and hard wires.

“We’re hoping to have a deci-
sion byjanuary,” Rieman said.

In the more ersonal atmo-
sphere of Shambiiala Meditation
Center yesterday afternoon,
Rinpoche smiled and spoke in
soft, careful English.

“What’s most im ortant for
all of us is to be kin and to get
along with everybody,” said the
Tibetan monk who now teaches
at the Karma Triyana Dharma—
chakra Buddhist monastery in
the Catskill Mountains near
Woodstock, N.Y.

Every erson should strive for
pure tru , he said. Then, happi-
ness would follow.

When Rinpoche looks at the
world, he sees truth as the good
in the world.

“Fighting or doing some
harm to another,” however, is
the worst he’s seen in the world.

“I wish for some of this harm
to never exist, but that’s just a
wish,” he said. “My rayers are
always there that this harm never
comes out.”

As a reincarnated teacher,
Rinpoche passes on the “whis—
pered lineage” of Tibetan Bud-
dhism. He’s been reincarnated
three times.

“This is actually something
many people go through,” he
said. But reincarnation varies
from person to person depend—
ing on the person’s karma.

Rinpoche’s good karma car-
ried him through reincarnation
as a teacher, of which he was rec-
ognized at age 11 when he fled
war-torn Tibet for northeastern
India. Since then, when he began
his trainin to be tulku, he’s
been teac ing the ways of
Tibetan Buddhism.

He’s been teaching Western
students interested in Tibetan
Buddhism since 1976.

Often he meets people struck
by his knowledge.

“I think I cannot say it is my
power,” he said with a blushing
smile. The knowled e instead is
of Buddhism, he said?

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — It's a
pretty simple formula for the UK
women‘s soccer team.

“in three straight games start-
ing this afternoon ant advance to
the NCAA ’l‘ournainent or lose
one game and the season's over.

The \\'ildcats (8—11-1) begin
play in the Southeastern Confer-
ence 'l‘ournainent today at 3:30
pm. .igainst Auburn and L'K will

need to pull off a miracle run in
the tournament to advance to its
third straight NCAA Tourna-

“It would be a hell of an
achievement for us to win this
thin ," said UK head coach \Var-
ren Eipka. “\A'e're going in there
and we’re gonna worry about our-
selves iii this tournament."

There's a few reasons why it
would be an impressive achieve—
ment for the \Vildcats to win the
SEC 'l‘ournanient.

Problem No. l is location.
Florida is hosting the tournament
this year and the Gators are pretty
darti tough at I’ercy Beard Stadi—
um, otherwise known as “The
Marsh." How about one loss in
more than two seasons at home?

successful is the field’s dimen-
sions. “The Marsh” is smaller

sions. Not so coincidentally,
Florida's only home loss came at
the hands of Vanderbilt who also
plays on a smaller soccer field.

“You've just got to adjust to the
conditions," said UK forward
Carrie Staber. “Once you adjust to
the field, it’s really no excuse.”

Fortunately for the Cats, UK is
the No. 3 seed from the East and
the Gators are the No. 2 seed
from the East.

The foes wouldn‘t meet until
the finals ifboth teams get there.
Earlier this season, Florida hand—
ed UK a 4-0 loss.

Problem No. 2 is talent. Unlike
