DHAHRAN, Saudi Arabia —
American and allied troops stormed
Kuwait by land, sea and air early
yesterday and wrested pieces of the
emirate from Iraqi forces. By day's
end, U.S. paratroopers and Marines
were reported on the doorstep of
Kuwait City.

The huge Desert Storm offensive.
striking along a 300-mile front, also
swept up into southern Iraq in the
largest American-led invasion since
World War II.

Allied casualties were
“remarkably light," said overall
commander Gen. H. Norman
Schwarzkopf, who gave no figures
for US. dead and wounded.

By early today, more than 10,000
Iraqis had been taken prisoner, a
senior US. military source said. No
information was available on Iraqi

bed by hundreds of tanks, the
troops from 11 nations raced across
the desert battlefield, at times under
pounding rain. Aircraft screamed in
low, attacking through greasy black
smoke from 200 oilfield fires. Hun-
dreds of assault helicopters
streamed into Iraq carrying Ameri-
can airborne troops.

One column of Saudi and Kuwaiti
troops that punched 20 miles into
Kuwait was ”moving like a knife
through butter.” Associated Press

Some defenders tried to hold their
positions. “'Ihey’re fighting, they're
resisting," a Marine colonel said at
one point And American military
sources cautioned that days of hard
fighting could lie ahead — particu-
larly if allied forces grapple with the
Iraqi army’s elite Republican Guard.

dents — which represents the state's
rtearly 200,000 college students —
had opposed the new law in part be-
cause board members said the cost
of health insurance would be more
than some students could afford.
But the Council on Higher Educa~
tion said Thursday that the insu-
rance required by the state could
cost students as little as $39 a se-
mester and $26 for summer school.

The policy is the same price for
all ages and is considerably cheaper
than the rate UK currently charges
for its student health plan. The cur-
rent UK plan costs $191 a semester
for students under the age of 35.
Older students must pay $526 a se-

Debbie McGuffey, associate di-
rector of CHE, said the council had
been contacted by an insurance car-

rier that said it could provide the
coverage mandated by the law for
$39 a semester. The CHE also ex-
pects to receive price quotes from at
least one other carrier, she said.
Sheryl Kramer, a UK graduate
student, said the CHE’s ann0unce—
ment is good news. Kramer. a 37-
year-old single mother, does not
currently have health insurance be-
cause she cannot afford UK’s stu-

dent policy.

“I think that's great that they're
going to find a carrier that's going
to lower the cost with no age crite-
ria," Kramer said.

The Board of Student Body Presi-
dents, however, still plans to seek
an injunction stopping implementa-
tion of the new law because they be-
lieve it is unconstitutional.

The law, which takes effect Sept.

1, requires all full-time college stu-
dents at public and private colleges
in Kentucky to carry health insu-
rance that pays for at least 14 days
in the hospital and 50 percent of re-
lated doctor's fees. The law also
covers part-time students who take
at least 75 percent of a full course

fleet of 300 helicopters, some pilot-
ed by women, streaked deep into
Iraq yesterday in a lightning thrust
aimed at cutting Saddam Hussein‘s
supply lines.

In what officers called the largest
helicopter assault in military histo-
ry, the Screaming Eagles of the
lOIst Airborne Division airlifted
more than 2,000 men, 50 humvees
and howitzers and tons of fuel and

ammunition more than 50 miles into
land vehicles took another 2,000
men from the 101$t over the border
into enemy territory along what the
troops called a “highway to hell."

“This is a bold, bodacious ac-
tion," Maj. Dan Grigson said.

The airborne operation was part
of a push to establish a strong toe-
hold on Iraqi territory west of Ku~

From such a position. U.S. ar-
mored forces could move north to
envelop Kuwait, or possibly pin
down or engage the Republican
Guard, the Iraqi army's elite, in

officers said.

Women pilots flew some of the
Chinook supply helicopters in the
assault. The 101$t has 22 female pi-
lots, although not all of them flew
into Iraq.

Col. Tom Hill, a brigade leader.
said at least 15 Iraqi soldiers were
captured and officers said hundreds
more prisoners were expected.

Hill said the attack was proceed-

afternoon. the troops had carved out

Iraq which will serve as a giant fuel

Gaines Center offering academic
credit in Venetian Renaissance Art

Contributing Writer

The Gaines Center for the Hu-
manities will be offering a unique
opportunity in the fall for UK stu-
dents to receive academic credit
while learning about Venetian Ren-
aissance Art.

Dr. Raymond Betts, director of
the Gaines Center, explained that
the center offers 3500 scholarships
to students who seek to participate,
although preference is given to sen-

“We hope to get a marvelous
mix of students." Betts said.

The program is set up so faculty
members can teach courses they
have always wanted to teach but
for which they did not have the
means. Faculty candidates submit
proposals of the courses they want

to teach, including a list of any ex-
perts who may be needed for the

“I don‘t know of any program in
the United States that is like this —-
that is so directed," Betts said. “It
will be integrative and beneficial to
all those who participate."

The faculty scholarship recipient
this year is Jonathan Glixon, a UK
music professor. Glixon is bringing
Dr. David Rozand. chair of the de-
partment of art and architecture at
Columbia University, to campus to
lecture on Venetian art and on the
artist Titian.

Most people have a very romantic
vision of Venice, Betts said, but ar-
tistically Venice is the most spectac-
ular city in Italy.

Rozand’s visit on campus will
provide UK students and the public
a chance to learn about Venice and

The program is structured to ena-
ble Rozand to visit UK for a week.

During that time, he will hold lec-
tures —— for students and for the
public — and students will be able
to meet with him on a more casual

for UK to get Rozand for the pro-

Students who are interested in
participating in the program should
pick up applications from Nancy
Howard, administrative assistant at
the Gaines Center.

Deadline for application is Fri-
day. Three gredit hours are award-
ed for completion of the program,
and credit received can be used to
fulfill part of the University Stud-
ies requirement.

The program will take place
sometime in October I991, al-
though exact dates have not been
set yet.

Saturday‘s open house at the
College of Engineering offered
an opportunity for UK engineer-
ing students and area high school
and junior high school students
to display their talents in the en-
gineering field.

In addition, the open house en-
abled the college to raise the
public‘s awareness of the role of
engineering irt everyday life.

The open house featured four
student competitions — the mod-
el bridge contest, the mousetrap
car contest, the egg-drop contest
and the student project competi-
tion. The contests were divided
into college. high school and jun-
ior high categories. A 550 first

third prize were awarded in each

The model bridge contest chal-
lenged the students to build the
most efficient bridge possible
from balsa wood.

Each model bridge is placed
on a computerized machine in
which pressure is applied to the
bridge until it breaks.

The level of pressure was
measured by the machine, and
the lightest bridge that could sup-

season will end after two more
games because of NCAA probation.

“It was more than a big game for

us," Pitino said after the Wildcats
improved to 20-6, 12-4 in the SEC.

Feldhaus scored 16 points in the
second half, when Florida over-
came an eight—point halftime deficit

Feldhaus said “We just did every-

it 65-59 and Kentucky (20-6, 12-4

A fifth-place conference finish
wouldn’t please most teams.

But for the UK Lady Kat basket-
ball team. a fifth-place finish in the
tough Southeastern Conference
was enough to bring smiles to the
UK team as well as their coach,
Sharon Fanning.

On Saturday UK won its sixth
straight game, defeating the Uni-
versity of Flori-
da 67-65 at
Memorial Coli-
seum. The win
improved UK's
record to 20-7
overall, and 4-5

great, great win

for us," Fanning
said. “Tonight we will celebrate,
then come back here next week and
work harder than ever to get ready
for the SEC Tournament."

UK took a 37-33 lead to the
locker room in the first half despite
being outrebounded 28—15 by the
lady Gators.

The Kats jumped out to a ten-
point lead to start the second half
after junior Kristi Cushenberry
completed a four-point play that
made the score 43-33.

Cushenberry went on to lead the
Kats in scoring. finishing with 18
points. She hit 4 of 8 shots from
three-point range.

With 9:56 to play in the second
half, Cushenberry scored her 1000
career point as a UK player. The
game was momentarily stopped as


coach Fanning handed the game
ball over to Cushenberry.

Florida‘s senior guard Sophia
Witherspoon scored six-straight
points late in the second half to nar-
row the score to 58-56.

And the game remained close all
the way to the end.

All eyes were on the basket when
Witherspoon's three-pomt attempt
with three seconds left fell short, al-
lowing the Kats to win.

“They're tough," Fanning said. “I
thought we handled them quite

Witherspoon. however, finished
as the game‘s leading scorer with
20 points and 9 rebounds.

Gators junior center Erika Lang
led all rebounders with 19, as Flori—
da went on to win the battle of the
boards 56-33.

Sophomore Jocyelyn Mills was
the Kats top rebounder with 11
boards and and 13 points.

Two injured shoulders didn’t
stop senior guard Tracye Davis
from playing in her last regular-
season game.

Davis didn't receive much sym-
pathy from the Memorial Coliseum
baskets as a countless number of
her shots fell in and out of the bas-

After the season Davis will hand
the Kats‘ steering wheel over to
freshmen point guard Karen Killen.

Killen says the thing she will
miss most about Davis is her great
sense of humor.

“She always cracks jokes like in
practice for instance 1 always have
to guard her at the top and she will
say something that makes me

After the game Davis seemed to
filled with joy.

“By far this is my happiest sea-
son here, we have a few games left
and I'm happy about that."

Before the game Davis was
pulled to center court where she re-
ceived hugs from both coach Fan-
ning and assistant coach Karen

Then the lights were turned off as
a spotlight focused on Davis. With
cheerleaders on both sides of Da—
vrs, the five hundred-plus crowd
sung a “My Old Kentucky Home”
in Davis's honor.

Pelphrey's last basket gave the
Wildcats a nine-point advantage
with 3:51 left. and Kentucky scored
its next 12 points from the free—
throw line.

Reggie Hanson hit five of six
shots during that stretch. and Pel-
phrey made four of six.
