For employes

UK trails in tuition help;
policy might be changed

Associate Editor

Once again, UK trails the rest of
Kentucky in employe benefits, as
“the only public institution in the
state which does not provide tuition
assistance for its employes.” ac-
cording to Jack Blanton, business
affairs vice president.

A study of other colleges and
universities in the state was con-
ducted last year by the UK Employe
Benefits Committee. a lt‘rmember
cross section of University em-

All other institutions offered some
type of tuition assistance for
regular, full-time employes for at
least one course per semester and,
in two instances, benefits were
extended to a spouse or children of
employes, said Howard Bost,
committee chairman.

Since 1954, University of Louisville
employes have been allowed to
attend a three-hour graduate or
undergraduate class with tuition
paid, said Geneviede Demongeot,
program assistant for Employe

With the department head’s ap
proval, Demongeot said, the em-
ploye can schedule during working
hours without being required to
make up the time later.

“Dependents of U of L employes
have been able to go full time tuition-
free since 1956," she said. Spouses of
faculty members can take a free
three-hour class.

Although there is no distinction
among faculty, staff, spouse or
dependent in the breakdown of
statistics, Demongeot said about 695
individuals take advantage of the
program.U of L has more than 3,000

However, the benefits for families
ofemployes will be discontinued for
those hired after July, 1978,

Demongeot said. No reason was

At Western Kentucky University
inBowIing Green, employes have
received tuition benefits for the past
10 years with only one change; now
employes can now take classes
during normal working hours if the
class is job-related.

Jim Tomes, personnel director,
explained that full-time employes
can take up to six hours of un-
dergraduate courses and three

graduate credits tuition—free. A
unique benefit is extended to spouses
whereby they take any number of
hours, with a 50 per centreduction in

Tomes called the participation in
the program “good” andsaid 93 of
1,500 employes registered for
classes lastsemester.

After taking this information into
consideration, the UK Employe
Benefits Committee submitted a
recommendation to President Otis
Singletary, through Blanton’s office,
for a UK program similar to others
around the state.

Benefits would be offered only to
regular full-time employes, Bost
said. No more than two courses per
semester would be paid for by the
University and only one could be
taken during regular working hours
with the supervisor’s approval.

The absence of the employe must

not compromise the efficiency of the.

office, Bast said. The actual time
loss through class attendance must
also be made up.

In addition,employe status will be
maintained and eligibility for
student benefits will be denied.

Business affairs office personnel
did some research themselves.

Matching student social security
numbers with full-time employe
numbers from the Computer Center,
it was found that last tall 415 cm-
ployes took classes (no distinction
could be made between graduate or
undergraduate) and 535 took classes
inthe spring, Blanton said.

Credit hours last fall totaled 2,582
andthe spring total reached 3,599

Blanton estimated the cost of
tuition as a loss in revenue, if the
University absorbed the expenseat
about $75,000 in the falland$104,000
for the spring. Including summer
school, the potential loss was
estimated at $200,000.

While the costmightseem high,
Blanton said it represents only “one
per cent of total tuitiors and fees last
fiscal year. "

As Blanton sees it, this op-
portunity for employe self-
irnprovement might enhance the
attractiveness of employmentat the
University and “aid somewhat in
this dismal statistic" of 100
vacancies in the clerical ranks.

The proposal itself requested that
the program be effective in the
beginning of fall, 1977. However,
that date has already passed and the
proposal is still under consideration,
pending what Blanton calls “the
necessary budget bucks."

A decision should come by next
spring, he said, after the plan has
had a chance to run through the
budget process for 197849.

“The main problem is the price _

tag,” Blanton said.

The proposal received no op-
position from Singletary or his
cabinet members. Blanton said it
would be hard for the University to
forego the tuition money unless it
could be replaced, but he offered
'assurance that nothing like student
fees would be raised to provide for
employe benefits.

Some eateries near campus still deliver,
but money hassles drive the figure down


Kernel Staff Writer

If those starchy cafeteria dinners
don’t last all night and the munchies
attack before 1 am, help is only a
phone call away.

Lexington has two restaurants
that deliver to the UK campus:
Domino’s, in the Garden Spring
Shopping Center and the Sub Center,
in Chevy Chase.

The Sub Center specializes in
“mini“ and“monster" submarine
sandwiches and also sells hotor cold
sandwiches. A minimum food
purchase of $1.75 allows the Sub
Center to provide free, delivery to

Manager Donnie Mynear said the
potential for UK business convinced
the owner to build in Lexington. “UK
keeps us going; at night 90 per cent
ofour delivery business comes from
UK," he said.


Can I please?

show atMasterson Station Park last

According to Supervisor Trainee
Bill McLennan of Domino’s, his
store is the only Lexington
restaurant with 85-95 per cent of its
business in deliveries. The large
delivery volume allows Domino’s to
save money by omitting in-store
dining facilities and thus maintain
competitive pizza prices.

“We give free delivery, but we
don‘t serve all of Lexington yet,”
said McLennan. “We plan on ex-
panding to 15 Lexington locations in
three to five years andare presently
under negotiations for another site
near UK, which will open in
February," he said.

The exactlocation of the new store
couldn't be announced because
Domino’s hasn’t finalized the lease

Both Domino‘s and the Sub Center
have one storeowned vehicle, but
delivery people usuallysupply their
own cars. Domino’s drivers pay
their own insurance and if an ac-
cident occurs, they pay the
deductible if they are at fault.

Domino's presently employs 12-14
drivers, compared to the Sub
Center’s two.

Domino’s McLennan said, “We‘ll
be needing about 20 drivers (this
winter) because our business in-
creases whenthe weather gets bad.

People would rather sit home and
have food delivered than go out in
bad weather to a restaurant.

“Last winter whenit was snowy
and icy our business was extremely

Domino's is in a strong residential
section, but McLennanthinks UK is
a definite plus for their business.
“UK probably contributes one-third
toone-half of the business. Drivers
like to go there because there is a
mass of people in one area and it’s
easy to locate them,” he said.

“Our drivers are the most im-
portant part of Domino‘s, since our
business is mostly delivery. Our
driving is an art; we don‘t want any
maniacs," McLennan said.

Domino's drivers receive an
hourly wage and nightly bonuses.
based on the number of pizzas
delivered. Bonuses can add up to$10
a night on regular pay and the more
pizzas delivered, the more com-
missions made.

Since drivers aren't assigned to
certain areas, the first driver in gets
the pizzas thatare ready. The cars
have portable ovens in the back
seats, which keep the pizzas hot.

The ovens hold up to nine pizzas,
“butwe don‘tusuallyput that many
in because they will get soggy,"
McLennan said.

UK is some distance from both
restaurants and football game
traffic often slows delivery. Both
Domino’s and Sub Center drivers
know the UK area fairly well and
drive through the alleys and
sidestreets to deliver quickly.

All drivers accept tips and recieve
both the hourly wage and com-
missions that help cover car ex-
penses. The Sub Center hires only
drivers with economic cars, but
Domino drivers have no restrictions
on their cars.

Bob Grammar, Domino’s
manager, said, “Some drivers make
between $12 and $15 a night in tips,
which easily covers the gas costs.”

Darger from robbery exists, but
neither Mynear nor McLennan
considers Lexington an especially
troublesome area, compared with
other cities.

“Lexington is a great community.
We‘ve had no trouble with hold—ups
yet," McLennan said. “In Columbus
(Ohio), there are 27 stores that are
relatively close to trouble areas and
they won’t deliver to the areas
because the drivers have been held

Second class

The caste system makes a
comeback! This should be the true
headline in today‘s paper. Here at
UK there is a group of second class
citizens known commonly as
students; you know. the ones the
University is really here for.

No other segment of society is
expected to work so hard for so little
as the students on this campus.

As an example. I wonder how long
Mr.Hagan would be willing to stand
inline for a parking permit or a

football ticket, or even if he and
others too numerous to mention
would park several miles away and
take a bus.

Teachers at this instituion cer-
tainly would not be asked to do this
or they would just go elsewhere to
teach; but students, they don’t mind.

Did you ever wonder why a

Writer discovers there's
a lot of hookey going on

Carter did not make a pit stop
on Fox Street. Two motor-
cycles swurg onto the block
first. then came a car filled
with agents, then two more
motorcycbs, a car, another
car. more motorcycles, more
cars. sirens crying. redlights
blinking—and then a brown


limousine with flags on the
front fenders and Carter in
the back seat, looking out the
windows and. you hoped,
seeing something.

The motorcade rolled along
the stone desert. Then it
turned the corner and was
gone. The captains and the
kings had departed, and you
were left in an empty lot in
the middle of the 800 block on
Fox Street. The view was of
10 gutted five-story apart-
ment buildings, and the piles
of rubble where a halfdozen
other buildings had stood
