GEORGETOWN — Speaking on the same cam-
pus William Henry Harrison did when he was elect-
ed in 1840, Republican presidential candidate Bob
Dole addressed a large crowd of Georgetown Col—
lege students and Republican supporters yesterday

“Strom Thurman introduced (Harrison) that day,
and he was elected president. He didn’t serve long,
he developed pneumonia. I don’t think he got it
here,” said Dole, referring to the 93—year-old senator
from South Carolina.

In his speech, he went to great length to explain
the GOP’s 15 percent tax cut plan, as well as take
some shots at incumbent opponent Bill Clinton, call-
ing the rally a “retirement party for President Clin-

Dole warmed the crowd up by talking about his
love for Kentucky, referring to his days at Camp
Breckinridge during World War II.

“I can properly claim Kentucky as my home

state,” said Dole, a Kansas native. “And I know that
you want to support your home—state candidate, and
I’m a Kentuckian. I like the (Georgetown) Tigers
and I like the \Vildcats.”
. Dole addressed several issues during his 5 eech to
‘1 1‘ the largely pro—Republican crowd. He said t e econ—
omy has struggled since Clinton’s election in 1992,
which is contrary to Democrats’ claims.

“He says that the economy's the best that it’s been
in 30 years,” Dole said. “But a recent study by the
Joint Economic Research reports that last year, 66
countries had economic growth which surpassed

“Now Bill Clinton may think that finishing 67th
is OK, but Bob Dole does not.”

Ernie Gibble, press secretary for the Clinton-
Gore reelection campaign in Kentucky, said Dole is
slightly mistaken.

“Dole must think that quadrupling the
deficit is OK,” he said. “Bill Clinton has cre- _ *
ated 10 million new jobs in this country, ,.

1 35,000 in Kentucky alone.” _

Dole then talked about his economic campa'fl
plan, which includes a 15 percent tax cut as 6
well as credit on taxes for each child.

“With a pro— rowth plan which starts with a 15
percent across-t e-board tax cut for every Ameri~
can,” he said. “We’re going to end the (Internal Rev-

McCoy case
to grand jury

By Kathy Reding

Amount New Farm-


UK police filed a criminal complaint yesterday
against Jay T. McCoy, fortner assistant dean of
students and financial adviser to UK’s fraternities.

According to UK Police Chief VV.H. McCo-
mas, the complaint filed a rainst McCoy consisted
of 10 counts of forgery an 10 counts ofpossession
of a forging instrument.

“That’s just the initial charges," McComas said.

The complaint against McCoy stems from an
investigation into his use of an Interfraternity
Council bank account. A University audit states he
misappropriated more than $11,000 from the


A judge was not in session yesterday to review
the complaint, but it should be reviewed by Mon—
day. After a judge reads the complaint, a criminal
summons or an arrest statement will be made.

“That gets it in the system,” McComas said.
“Once it gets there, the case goes to the grand

A grand jury will then investigate the charges
and determine if the charges constitute a felony. If
so, the case will be referred to the Common-
wealth’s attorney’s office, McComas said.

When asked about the complaint filed yester—
day, McCoy said he had no knowledge ofit.

“I am not aware of anything at this point,"
McCoy said.

McCoy, 35, resigned from UKjuly 15, citing
personal reasons.

He had been supervisor of 25 to 30 agency
accounts for student organizations and served as
financial adviser for the Interfraternity Council
and (ireek Activity Steering Committee.

According to a UK audit, McCoy wrote 30
checks to himselffrom the IFC bank account from
Jan. 20, 1995 and May 5, 1996, totaling
$11,107.91. The problem came to light when
PNC bank, which holds the IFC’s account, noti-
fied the dean of student’s office that the account
was overdrawn, according to a management
review commissioned by James Kuder, vice chan-
cellor for student affairs. The review also stated
that McCoy admitted to forging the signatures of
the IFC president and the vice president ofinter—
nal relations, which he needed to gain access to the

The university audit cited other instances when
McCoy wrote checks to himself on the IFC
account and but later billed UK for meals, lodging
and airfare, constituting a double reimbursement.

Following completion of the audit, the dean of
students turned the matter over to UK police for
investigation and appropriate action.

lawsuit filed by former men’s basketball trainer
JoAnn Hauser.

Hauser filed the suit last summer against the
two men, the university and the UK Athletics

She contended that she was discriminated
against when Newton asked her to move from
trainer of the men’s team to the same position with
the women’s team.

Hauser, the men’s basketball trainer from 1991-
95, left the university last year. According to the
suit, Hauser considered the switch to be a demo-
tion and thought it was being done to make room
for Pitino’s friend, Edward “Fast Eddie” Jamiel,
whom she thought was less qualified.

The summary judgment Thursday by Fayette
Circuitjudge Mary C. Noble does not pertain to
Pitino or Newton’s guilt or innocence, only their
personal liability should Hauser win a judgment.

Hauser is seeking more than $2 million in dam—
ages, lost wages and legal fees. The university has
sought a dismissal of the suit, but Noble has yet to

BAGHDAD, Iraq — Iraq and the

United States moved closer to a showdown yester-
day, with more U.S. firepower sent to the Persian
Gulf, Iraq claiming missile attacks on American
jets and both countries spitting harsh rhetoric.

After almost two weeks of conflict, each side
seemed willing to raise the stakes but neither
looked pre red to make a decisive move.

Ira saidNit fired missiles at U.S. warplanes over
a no- y zone for a second straight day yesterday,
hours after accusing Kuwait of an “act of war” for
agreeing to open its airfield: to American jets.

Pentagon officials confirmed that Iraq fired
three surface-to-air missiles yesterday, but said
they were aimed at an area near the southern “no-
fly” zone where allied aircraft were not flying.

For days, Iraq has re rted firing on U.S. and

People are classified as bulimic ifthey
have eating binges in which they consume
thousands of calories in less than two
hours, at least twice a week for three
months. Immediately after the binge,
their fear of gaining wei ht overwhelms
them and they purge the find out of their
systems, either by forcing themselves to
vomit or by abusing laxatives or diuretics.

In advanced cases of the disorder, bulimics may
follow this binge and purge routine five times a day,
and their lives may revolve around finding times and
places to eat where they will not be discovered. This
obsession with eating can take its toll on a bulimic’s
social activity.

Unlike anorexia, it is
possible for someone to have bulimia for
years without any of their loved ones
knowing it, especially if their hinges and
purges are infrequent.

Humphries said bulimia is far more
prevalent on college campuses than
anorexia, because anorexia usually begins
at the onset of puberty. Bulimia, on the other hand,
does not discriminate against a e, and often attacks
women who stayed healthy all the way through high
school once they get to college.

“If you're a female in colle e, you're at risk,"
Humphries said. The cause of ulimia is debated,
but it almost always begins with an individual’s

intense fear of becoming overweight. Although
bulimics consume large amounts of food at one
time, they do not always enjoy eating — it is merely
satisfying an addiction.

Although bulimia begins as a mental obsession
with weight control, in its advanced stages it
becomes a physical problem. The body begins to
reject even normal amounts of food, forcing the
bulimic to throw up even if they do not want to. In
addition, serious cases of bulimia nervosa can cause
dehydration and imbalances in electrolytes and min-
erals, which help the muscles and nerves function. In
rare cases, bulimics have ruptured their stomachs or
esophagi and died from peritonitis.

BIIIIIIBI‘ l‘fllSBS iunris TDI' leukemia

By Capri Cicero

Thisjanuary, Brian Bailey, an
accounting senior, will run a
marathon for life in Bermuda.

Thirteen-year-old Jonathan
Turock (known to his friends as
“_I.B.”) is countin on him.

].B. was iagnosed with
leukemia at age 12, only a month
before he was to enter that mysti—
cal period, the teen years.

He is now 13 and perhaps
more mature than his seventh
grade classmates at Morton Mid-
dle School in Lexington.

Bailey, 3 runner since February

1994, ran his first marathon after
his grandmother died of heart dis—
ease. .
After her death, he began his
own fund—raising campaign, pre—
sented the results to the American
Heart Association, and ran in the
Disney World Marathon for
AHA’s benefit.

Bailey made it a goal to run two
marathons a year, but after the
Columbus Marathon and April's
Boston Marathon, he began to
realize that he was losing focus.

Ilis fastest time was the Disney
\Vorld Marathon, in which he had

Bailey commented on J.B.’s
assertiveness, realizing how trivial
our day-to-day trials seem when
faced with a situation like his.

“You think you have it rough,”
Bailey said about college students,
“but it’s real, and it’s happening
right here in Lexington. Don’t get
down on yourself.”

].B. was dia osed with acute
lyrnphocytic eukemia, which
causes the body to create imma-

Those cells are unable to fight
infections as well as normal white
blood cells, resulting in a reduc—
tion of the body’s red blood cell

This type ofleukemia is acute,
meaning it is mostly seen in chil-
dren, while lymphocytic means
the cells in the lymph nodes and
spleen are affected.

The Leukemia Society of

The disease is like a haunted

He does consider future plans,
however, and he is thinking about
attending Florida State and
becoming a marine biologist.

The 12—year—old said that he
felt it was better for him to have
the disease than another child at a
different age. _l.B. explained that
he understands the pain of the
treatments, whereas a younger
child or infant would not.

TB. has learned a lot from his
disease, and the experience has
made him more mature.

because it shows us where we’re

This is only the second match
between the schools. Last year,
Florida defeated the Cats 2-] in

Understandably, then, the Cats
have revenge against the Gators
on their minds, but UK feels less
pressure than before.

“We’re ready to come out and
show them what we can do and
what we should have done last

The Cats come into the ame
with an unblemished recorr. On
Monday, UK (2-0) hammered
Dayton 5—1.

That thrashing and a win over
North Carolina-Greensboro last
Sunday has UK ready to take on
the Gators.

“I think we’re ready to go,"
Lipka said. “If it was our first
game of the year, I’d say I'm not
ready for anyone.”

Like the Cats, Florida also
comes in with a perfect 2-0 record.
They also come in with a huge
momentum lift. Last week in front
of 2,710 fans, the second-largest
home crowd in Florida history,
the Gators defeated No. 9 Vir-

impressive, Florida won without
their main scoring threat, junior
All—American forward Danielle
Fotopoulos, who sat out with a
sprained right ankle. She is ques-
tionable for this afternoon’s game.

Playing at Percy Beard Stadium
in Gainesville, Fla, will be a chal-
lenge for UK. Not only did the
Gators average over 1,600 fans a
game last year, but their field has
smaller dimensions than most soc—
cer fields.

Lipka said the size of the field
can make a big difference.

“A mistake on a smaller field
can be very costly where you could
make up for one here," he said.

The next challenge for the Cats
will be on Sunday, when UK will
be in Columbia, S.C., to take on
South Carolina.

Last year USC went 0—7-1 in
the SEC and finished at the bot-
tom of the conference. One of
those losses for the Gamecocks
was to UK; the Cats defeated USC
2—0 in Lexington.

However, Lipka says that South
Carolina is “definitely better than
last year,“ and he fears that there
may be a letdown with his club.

“\Ve look to take both games,"
Lipka said. “I'm not gonna go
down there and try to just play
good or this or that. \Ve're look-
ing to win. \Ve’re going down

Other than much-heralded recruit Tim
Couch. UK has had trouble getting top-
notch talent. -

As a result, the Wildcats
are forced to hunt for hi rh
school football talents w 0
have been overlooked. One
such recruit UK snagged
this year is wide receiver
Quentin McCord.

McCord went to
LaGrange High School in McCord
LaGrange, Ga., a school that has put sev-
eral players in the ranks of the NFL and
countless others in Division I college ball.

Yet, for 5 )me reason McCord went
unnoticed by many traditional college
football powers.

“Along with Kentucky, there was a cou-
ple of big schools like Georgia Tech and
Auburn,” McCord said. “And I got some
Division I-AA schools like Troy State and
Georgia Southern.”

UK wide receivers coach joker Philli s
is glad McCord slipped through t e
recruiting cracks.

“When you’re at a place like this you
have got to go out and find that sort of
guy," Phillips said. “There’s a lot of guys
out there that are playing in the NFL that
were not heavily recruited.

“just look at Jeff Brady who’s from
here. A guy who wasn’t even recruited and
he’s starting in the NFL.”

When McCord reported to camp, he
was not expected to start, but he earned a
spot in the starting lineup for UK’s season
opener against Louisville.
