Though the state Council on
Higher Education decided last
spring to raise tuition rates in spite
of student protests, UK Student
Government Association leaders
haven‘t given up the fight against

further increases.

First, the group planned a rally in
front of the Administration Build-
ing for Nov. 3. Now it members
have set up booths around campus
to garner signatures on a petition
against higher tuition.

“It‘s all a matter of principle.”
SGA President Lance Dowdy said.

“We don't feel like the council is
keeping its obligation to students in
this partnership. We've been taking
increase after increase the last three
or four years. and nobody has really
made a fuss about it"

Actually, student leaders tried to
make a fuss last year. but low tum-
outs at public hearings and a rally

in Frankfort kept the volume low.

This time around. Dowdy thinks
a more local approach by each state
school will be more effective. Each
school will hold its own rally or
protest. Dowdy said.

“It's a grass-roots approach,“
Dowdy said. “We have 172,000
college students in Kentucky. If we

bring legislators a petition with
100,000 signatures. that should oe a
pretty powerful impact."

Dowdy has set a goal of 16,000
signatures from UK students. He
said 1,000 students penned their
support last Tuesday. the fust day
the booths were set up.

When Otis A. Singletary was

last night.

Reagan gets three quotes in ‘Bartlett’s’

WASHINGTON — Ronald Rea-

To bolster his point. Meyerson
has printed in his magazine 15 pag-
es of “conservative quotations"
from the pst 50 years that he says
should have been in Bartlett's.
They come from Robert Bork.
Rush Limbaugh. Milton Friedman.
Pope John Paul 11. Margaret

F. Buckley Jr. and Chiang Kai-
shek. among others.

Some of Meyerson's choices

16th edition of Bartlett's. not only
gave short shrift to Reagan but de-

on. but 1 did not sit down as a mat-

conservatives." he said in an inter-

In fact. he did Reagan a favor by
limiting him to three quotes. Kaplan

Reagan “could not be described
as a memorable phrasemaker or
original thinker." Kaplan wrote in a
Wall Street Journal article when
Meyerson first raised his charge.
“He had a useful vocabulary of
show business quips and punch
lines but. aside from this. much of
what he said was simply not mem-

To prove he had no evil motive.
Kaplan said two of his three Reagan
choices also appear in a highly re-
garded Library of Congress corn-
pendium. They are: “We're the par-
ty that wants to see an America in
which people can still get rich" and
“Government is like a big baby —
an alimentary canal with a big appe-

tite at one end and no responsibility
at the other.”

Kaplan‘s third Reagan quote
was: “It’s difficult to believe that
people are sming in this country
because food isn't available."

Many of Reagan’s most famous
zingers were written by aides. Ka-
plan contended.

Others were borrowed. he said,
citing what Reagan told his wife af-
ter he was shot in an assassination
attempt: “Honey. I forgot to duck"

Heavyweight boxer Jack Demp-
sey said it first. Kaplan said.

Before Kaplan updated Bartlett's,
there were no Reagan quotes in it
But Meyerson noted that Zachary
Taylor rated just as many quotes as
Reagan, while Jimmy Carter got
six. John F. Kennedy 28 and Frank-
lin Roosevelt 35.

And even when Reagan and oth-
er contemporary conservatives are
quoted. Meyerson said. “their ideo-
logically most powerful state-
ments" are often left out.

Woman’s death unnoticed by helpful neighbors

WORCESTER. Mass. — One
neighbor had Adele A. Gaboury's
lawn mowed for her. Another took
care of a pile of mail. A utility com-
pany was called to tend to her brok-

All the while. the 73-year-old
recluse lay dead. probably for four
years, in trash on the kitchen floor.
Authorities found her body Monday

with a phone nearby. as if she was
trying to make a call when she died.

“She didn't want anyone bother-
ing her at all." said an old friend.
June Tsiokas. “She just wanted to
be left alone. I guess she got her
wish, but it‘s awfully sad.”

Neighbors had inquired about
Gaboury about four years ago, after
they noticed she was missing. But
one of her brothers. with whom she
wasn’t close, told police she had
gone into a nursing home.

Clintons take plan to Congress today


By Christopher Connoll
Associated Press


WASHINGTON — President
Clinton's health reform proposal
will fall $30 billion short of the
budget savings predicted earlier. an
administration official said yester-
day as the White House readied the
plan for delivery to Congress.

The president and Hillary Rod-
ham Clinton were due to bring the
1,600-page bill to Congress in per-
son today in a ceremony in Statuary
Hall, five weeks after Clinton's ini-
tial pitch.

Clinton has argued that without a
sharp slowdown in health inflation,
the federal deficit would spiral
back up later in this decade.

But his economic advisers had
vowed to sacrifice further deficit
reduction before raising taxes any
more for health reform.

In the original draft, Clinton‘s
health plan would have lowered the
deficit by $91 billion between now
and the year 2000.

Dr. Philip R. Lee. the assistant
secretary for health, told a medical
educators' meeting the deficit re-
duction figure now is “around $60

in the original plan.

And a government takeover of
employers' costs of providing
health benefits for early retirees
ages 55 to 64 will be phased in
slowly between 1998 and 2001,
said the officials, who swke on
condition of anonymity.

In another change. the White
House has backed down from an
ambitious goal to reserve half of all
residencies for doctors training in
primary care, not specialists, within
five years.

Instead, it would set a goal of
having 55 percent of the residents
in primary care by the year 2002.
Seventy percent of the 625,000 US.
doctors now are specialists.

Clinton said yesterday he was not
willing to water down his health re-
form plan in the face of criticism
from the National Association of
Manufacturers that he was promis-
ing Americans too much.

“Most manufacturers are going to
save money on this.

If they want to look a gift horse
in the mouth, that can be their deci-
sion," the president said.

Leon Panetta, the White House
budget director, said Clinton had

A 239-page draft summary of
Clinton's original proposal that
leaked out almost seven weeks ago
has been a lightning rod for com-
plaints from businesses. hospitals
and others with worries about the
so-called Health Security Plan.

The plan proposes to pay for the
reforms with cigarette taxes. big
savings in Medicare and Medicaid.
a one percent levy on large corpora-
tions and a requirement that all em-
ployers and employees buy insu-

Some lawmakers have voiced
fears that Clinton was concentrating
too much power in the hands of an
independent National Health Board
and the regional alliances that
would form a new insurance-buying

Under the final plan. the health
board would be an executive agen-
cy. not an independent board like
the Securities and Exchange Com-
mission, the sources said.

And the regional health alliances
would accept virtually all health
plans with no limits on the number
of plans offering traditional, fee-
for-service medicine. the officials

States, not the alliances. would
certify each health plan.

But Lee told the Association of

Where: Intermezzo

The Clinton plan would encour-
age Americans to join prepaid plans
such as health maintenance organi-
zations where their out-of-pocket
costs would be lower.

Such plans would charge patients
510 each time they went to the doc-
tor with no deductibles.

Advocates for the poor warned
that SlO would be a hardship for a
poor family on Medicaid. which
now has no copayments.

The revised Clinton bill would re-
duce the copayments for welfare
families and allow the health plans
to waive them for others as well,
the officials said.

Clinton initially promised subsi-
dies for small businesses with 50 or
fewer workers and average wages
of $24,000 or less.

Now the discounts will go to
firms with up to 75 employees, var-
ying both by size and average

Clinton‘s proposed takeover of
the employers‘ 80 percent share of
premiums for early retirees will be

from gay ban ruling

Supreme Court to decide issue


Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Clinton
administration will ask the Su-
preme Court “very soon“ for tem-
porary relief from a federal district
court ruling that prohibits discrimi-
nation against hornosexuals in the
military, the Pentagon said yester-

The emergency order, if granted,
would enable the Defense Depart-
ment to implement its new policy
on homosexuals. which states that
recruits will not be asked their sex-
ual orientation but that gays who
openly declare their sexual orienta-
tion will not be permitted to serve.

Kathleen deLaski, a Defense De—


lief from the Supreme Court."

The action stems from the ruling
of US. District Court Judge Terry
Hatta Jr. in Los Angeles that the
military's prohibition against ho-
mosexuals is unconstitutional.

The California case involved
Navy petty officer Keith Meinhold,
who was discharged last year after
declaring on national television that
he is homosexual.

Earlier this month the 9th US.
Circuit Court of Appeals rejected a
government request to delay imple-
mentation of Hatter‘s ruling while
the case is on appeal.

DeLaski said the government
now is ready to ask the Supreme
Court for that temporary relief
while the appeals court considers

of guard hot topic



President Clinton on Monday
turned down D.C. Mayor Sharon
Pratt Kelly’s request that he give
her the same power that governors
have to call out the Guard.

Clinton said he would support
asking Congress to change the law
to give her that authority, but in the
meantime her idea of using the
Guard for police work is dead.

Kelly's request highlights a
broader debate now under way: Is it
civil missions, and are citizen sol-
diers suited to law enforcement?

“I would be concerned about it if
it went beyond" the traditional role
of the Guard as a backup to active-
duty troops in wartime, a force to
respond to civil disorder and natural
disasters, and a supplement to coun-
ter-drug forces, said Deborah Lee.
the assith defense secretary for
reserve affairs.

“Our people —- even our MPs —
are not trained in the intricacies of

Until the late 19805 the two main
missions of the National Guard
were to supplement the active force
in wartime, and to help restore civil
order during riots or after natural
disasters such as hurricanes.

Then in 1989 the Congress. re-
sponding to a public outcry for
stronger action to combat drug traf-
ficking. authorized the use of the
Guard in the drug war.
