Bennett's song sat in a drawer

LOS ANGELES w Tony Bennett might
have left his heart in San Francisco a couple
of years earlier if his accompanist hadn‘t put
the song in a drawer. Bennett says two song-
writers gave “I Left My Heart in San Francis-
co" to his accompanist. who put it under some
shirts. It finally came out of the drawer two
years later as Bennett was starting a tour in
1961 and wanted to do something that would
impress the locals when they played San Fran-
cisco. "We rehearsed it for the first time at Va-
pors Restaurant in Hot Springs. Arkansas.

ing. She especially loved reading
to children in the other wards.
She eagerly read the six
books a week her mother used
to bring her. as well as all the
books on the hospital‘s library
cart. Desperate for more reading
material. she began to read Chil-


dren '3 Life magazines on the bot-
tom of the cart. She especially
enjoyed the magazine's riddles.

Berryman's determination
paid off while she was a student
at UK. She went into accounting
because someone told her she
would never be able to handle a
room full of children. Because
she couldn‘t walk well. she
should sit at a desk, they said.

She soon realized teaching

dents," said Bruce Cole of the

dean's office. “Her sense of hu-
mor puts students at ease."

Berryman‘s sense of humor
is evident as she talks about
some of the challenges she has
to face because of her disability.

Until two years ago. the
Taylor Education Building did
not have accessible bathrooms.

“1 don‘t want to say any-
thing. l‘ve only been here 34

Realizing that no matter
how hard she worked. she
would never reach past a cer-

Wallace and her family are
currently living on child sup-
port. while federal Student aid
and student loans pay for Wal-

lace‘s education. Wallace has
also done some work-study and
picks up odd jobs when she can.

Odd jobs work better for
Wallace because caring for her
children and attending college
make holding a steady job diffi-
cult. Even on the days she
doesn’t have classes, if she has
a test to study for. a homework
assignment or if one of her
children gets sick, she can‘t

Sick children have present-
ed additional problems as well.

“If a traditional UK student
(ages 1723, no children) has a
slight fever or cold. they can
still get up and drag themselves
to class if they absolutely have
to go.“ Wallace said. “But if Lo—
gan has a slight fever. Kinder-
care won‘t let him attend. If I
can‘t find someone else to take
care of him while l'm in class. I
have to miss."

This presents a large prob-
lem in classes that have an at-


tendance policy. Wallace said
she had a class in which she
had almost an A. until her son
Branden had to go to the hospi-
tal. She had to miss class a
number of times and ended up
receiving a C in the class ~ the
first C she had ever had. She
had a 3.8 grade~point average
up until that point.

Childcare is especially a
big issue. While UK does offer
some childcare for students. it
is only half-day. can only take
children 3 and older and has a
long waiting list.

While Wallace readily ad-
mits that the hardships she
faces as a single mother and
non-traditional student are her

said. "i could go sit in my liv-

I have a test tomorrow. so I

Wallace encourages young
women to take advantage of the
opportunities they have now.
and not wait until later to go to
college like she did. Single par-
ents often have to deal with
matters that traditional stu~
dents take for granted. she said.

UK life through married eyes

Couples see student life in different way
when dealing with house chores, child rearing

By Regina Prater
STAFF wniirn

To most students. marriage
is the end of freedom. some-
thing old people do. But to other
students. marriage is simply a
way of life.

To newlyweds Sarah Hat-
field. a first-year graduate stu
dent. and Scott Hatfield. mar-
riage was a normal progression
of their relationship.

“I was friends with Scott's
younger brother Mark. Then
when Scott came to see his
brother graduate we met at a
party the night before gradua.
tion." Sarah said.

They dated for about a year
and married in July of this year.

Sarah completed her bache-
lor‘s degree in 1996 from
Maryville College in Maryville.
Tenn. and worked for a year
before going back to school to
earn a master's degree in com-

Sarah said she is experienc-
ing many new situations this
semester. She has moved to a
new state. attends a new school.
has a new a teaching job and a
new marriage.

Scott is very supportive of
her continuing education and
evenly shares the household
chores with her. Sarah said.

“There is no formal set of
rules. whenever something
needs to be done, one of us does
it." Scott said. “Sarah tends to
do the laundry. and I usually do
the kitchen and bathroom."

Most of the time Sarah and
Scott eat at home. and Scott
said he often cooks stuff that is
fast and easy to fix.

The couple has opposing
views as to how they are able to
spend time with each other.
Scott said it just works out that
they are able to spend time to-
gether. Sarah said she works
very hard to get her school
work finished during her spare
time in the day. so the couple
can spend time together at
night and on the weekend.

The two of them agree that
their lives get stressful.

"There are no difficulties
that we have not been able to
overcome. We get stressed out.
but we don‘t take it out on each
other." Scott said.

He added that he has seen a
progression of acceptance of

women working outside the
home and better communica-
tion in his own family through
the generations.

“1 think it is fine if women
work. I think Sarah would be
unhappy if she stayed at home.
although it is fine with me for
Sarah to do whatever she
wants." Scott said.

Another married L'K stu—
dent. Cindy Caton. an educa-
tion senior. will be taking the
semester off in the spring to
give birth to twins.

Caton. 29. is an adult stu-
dent who came back to college
last year. Her first semester
back. she attended classes full-
time in addition to working
full-time. she said.

She quit work to concen-
trate on school when child care
cost reached $300 a Week during
the summer.

Caton has three daughters.
Megan. 9. Ashlea. 6. and
Bethany. 5. from a former mar-
riage. Her husband Chris has 5-
yearold daughter. Sarah. from a
previous marriage.

Caton said she is frustrated
with UK‘s enrollment policies
because she will lose her senior
priority registration status if
she sits out next semester to
have the twins.

”My doctor will not allow
me to do anything stressful that

will jeopardize these babies. My
doctor ordered bed rest in Feb
ruary." she said.

Caton said even though she
has a medical reason for miss-
ing a semester. UK is making
her reenroll as a new student
in August '99. causing her to
possibly miss out on enrolling
in the courses she needs.

Caton said her husband is
very supportive of her continu~
ing her education and often
tells her to put her school work
first. Caton said she is a respon-
sible student. but she has other
people who depend on her.

Caton said being a mom is
her first priority and with
school second.

if one of the children is in a
special program. she will skip
class and take a reduction in
her grade to attend it. unless it
means letting her classmates

“If others are depending on
me for a group project. then I
will have to be in class." Canton

She said she is straightfor-
ward with her professors and
classmates about her other re
sponsibilities and everyone
seems to understand. Although
occasionally. she said she may
run across a professor or stu-
dent who doesn't understand
what being a mother is like.

riage partner in undergrad."
Mann said.

Tammy Chapman agrees.

“Probably undergrad col-
lege is where they meet their
first marriage partner." said
Chapman. a doctoral student in

"After undergrad. some
probably meet through profes—
sional activities like confer-
ences. through mutual acquain-
tances. church activities or
sports activities. i‘d say they'd
have to have common interests
for them to meet up some»

randon Claycomb. a phi-
losophy graduate student.
agrees that common interests
are important.

"in graduate school. we're
at a certain age. we‘re older
than undergraduate but not in
the work force yet so we have.

more in common with other
grad students." Claycomb said.

Most graduate students
say they met their significant
other in residence halls and

“I would guess the resi-
dence balls is where most peo-
ple meet." Chapman said. “If
(students) don‘t live in the resi-
dence halls. then they probably
meet in classes 'cause that's
where you find people who
have similar interests."

Clubs and churches are
also common places for rela-
tionships to start. the students
say, but meeting that special
someone through a mutual
friend is just as likely.

“i think you meet in under
grad during your extracurricu-
lar activities. like fraternities
or sororities and the clubs or
religious groups you‘re in."
Mann said.

“During work and not so
much classes. but through oth-
er people. is how people en
counter their partner." said

Melanie Trowell. a graduate
student with a bachelor's de-
gree in biochemistry.

A work relationship led to
her marriage.

“I was an RA over at I)ono«
van and (Calvin. her husband)
sat nightdesk. and wejust start-
ed talking." she said.

“I think the relationships
that really last are built on some-
thing deeper that allows them to
stay together. So a place where
they get to see that person for
who they really are is where
most people meet their first mar~
riage partner." Trowell said.

Meeting someone in a li-
brary. though. isn't usually con-
sidered a normal place to start
a relationship.

“We met in the periodicals
department at King." Ciaycomb

According to the National
Center for Health Statistics. 2.3
million people get married a
year. The average age of a
woman for her first marriage is
around 24: around 26 for men.
