SOAC may be revitalized

The Student Government Associ-
ation‘s (‘ommiflec on (‘oinmittees
today will consider reinstating sonte
form of the Student Organization
Assistance (‘ommittce to help the
SfiA Senate allocate its ftiitds.


The return of St )A(‘ was suggest-
ed iii response to recent complaints
from botlt students atid senators
about the senate’s spending habits.

At last week's senate meeting.
S(iA President l’ete November
highlighted this problem with an
executive order that demanded the
senate establish criteria for the allo-
cation of funds to student groups.

The executive order was intended

to remind student oi‘gani/ations that
"the senate is not a bank" arid that
there are more important issues
than allocating funds M like budget

November took away the sen-
ate‘s ability to allocate money by
free/ing its funds. He said he will
lift the free/e oiily after the senate
establishes spending guidelines,

“'l he executive order will be lift-
ed by (the) next (senate meeting) if
the criteria are set up and they will
solve the current situation." No—

vember said.

November said resurt'ecting
SfiAf‘ is a viable option because it
would have to follow the same
spending standards as the senate.

Before S()A(‘ was abolished. it
consisted of a hodge podgc of stu-
dents fi‘oin botlt the executi\- and

Rape avoidance is itot just an is-

Several programs are available
on campus to teach men how not to
be sexually abusive.

One such program is “Sex Spec-

speak freely about their expecta-

The program is designed to edu-
cate men about rape with the hope
that it will decrease their chances of
becoming overly aggressive.

“Anything where people can be
educated cart help fight rape.“ said
Mary Bolin-Rcece. a part-time em-
ployee at both the UK Counseling
Center and the Lexington Rape Cri-
sis Center.

Bolin-Reece explained that infor-

rape is a control issue. not a sexual

“Rape is a cultural issue. When
men are educated to respect a fe-
male who ultimately plays the sub-

The versions also include differ-
ent payroll taxes. The employer
plan would impose a 16 percent tax
for failing to provide coverage
while the individual pitut would im-
pose a 3 percent payroll tax.

t‘abinet Secretary Kevin llable
said the taxes do not break Jones’
pledge that health-care reform
would not mean a broad-based tax
increase because employers could
avoid the taxes by providing health-
care coverage.

"I don't call this a broad-based

Democrats who control (‘ongress
:u'c debating whether to wrap
President Clinton's health-czu'e
and budget-cutting proposals into
one giant bill. presenting law-
makers the most drtunatic budget
vote in years.


"If they did that. mzuiy mem—
bers could be betting their ca-
reers on this one vote," Stanley

(‘ollender. who monitors budget
legislation for the accounting firrn
Price Waterhouse, said yesterday.

The strategy is being pushed by
Senate Majority Leader George
Mitchell tl)-Maine), who says
creaung a huge package attacking
two of the nation's paramount prob-
lerns would give health~care revi-
sion its best chance for approval
this year.

“We could have the hearings.
mark it up in committee and get it
out and get it done sometime during
the summer. perhaps early sum-

mer." Mitchell said Sunday on
CBS' “Face the Nation."

The idea generates less enthu-
siasm in the House. Majority Lead-
er Richard Gephardt (D-Mo.) said
Friday that there are too many
questions about the shape and lim-
ing of both complicated measures
to know whether they can be com-

“My hope is we do both health
care and (deficit-reduction) in a
similar time frame. either together
or apart. so by the end of the year
we could accomplish both goals,"

he said.

Health care “clearly is on a
slower track" than deficit-
reduction. House Budget Coni-
mittee Chainnan Martin Olav
Sabo (D-Minn.) said yesterday.
His panel is already writing the
House's version of the tax in-
creases and spending cuts.

A White House team headed
by the president's wife, Hillary
Rodham Clinton, hopes to com-
plete a health-care package by
early May.

would reduce the businesses' net
expense to $36 million. the econ-

Both approaches include assis-

that can least afford coverage.

For businesses. the state would


provide subsidies that would vary
in amount depending on payroll
size and companies‘ net incomes.
To qualify for any subsidy. compa-

idea, anyway.

legislators and did some lobbying.

[Education on rape and sexual ag-
gression is not as widespread for
males as it is for females. Most pro-
grams are geared toward females
because they are the victims in
most cases.

Mallory said more attention to
the male perspective. in the form of
discussion groups and courses, is
an important part of rape preven-
tion. “This is something that defi-
nitely needs work. The benefits of
this would be mostly for the col-
lege-age group. They might look at
this subject and laugh. We want
them to look for something that
will hit them in the head and make
them think.“

Last semester Lamda Chi Alpha

through the UK Department of

dents a chance to interact with the
opposite sex.

“Guys learned the woman’s per-

the guy‘s perspective, while we
were all together," said Brad Dea-

da Chi. “If people really listen and
get interested. it‘s a good thing."

Mason announces bid
for SGA presidency


ByJoe Braun
Editorial Editor


Vowing “not to reinvent the
wheel, but rather make it a little
faster and more effective,“ biology
junior Scott Mason yesterday an-
nounced his plans to run for Stu-
dent Government Association pres-

“We need to begin to take the is—
sues to students instead of sitting
back and letting them come to us,"
he said.

Mason. from Madisonville, Ky..
has held several other campus lead-
ership positions, including presi-
dent of Alpha Kappa Psi social fra-
ternity. lnterfratemity Council
representative for Alpha Kappa Psi
and UK Prejudice Reduction Task
Force member.

He said he will strive during his
campaign to reach those students
who traditionally are ignored dur-
ing elections, namely handicapped
and minority students. Mason said
the minority population includes
not just black students, but intema-
tional students and others as well.

His vice presidential running
mate will be Michael Eaves, ajour-
nalism junior from White Plains.
Ky. Eaves is a member of Phi Sig-
ma Kappa social fratemity and vice
president of the National Associa-
tion of Black Journalists. He was
SGAs representative to the UK
Undergraduate Council in the fall.

“We want to let students know
what's going on on campus." he


Eaves said he has worked on sev-
eral presidential campaigns. and
they've never turned out as he
thought they would.

“We will," he said.

“SGA hasn‘t been very accessi-
ble in the past. and we want to en-
courage students to get involved."

Mason said he would like to iii-
crease student lobbying efforts in
Frankfort with another legislative
session coming up next year.

“As the flagship university of the
state. we need to be at the forefront
in the battle against the Council on
Higher Education and the Govcm~
or‘s Office" to try to prevent future
budget cuts or tuition increases.

Mason. the third candidate to an-
nounce his presidential bid to the
Kentucky Kernel, said he intends to
make a fonnal announcement to-
night at the Delta Gamma social so-
rority house.

Mason, along with the other two
candidates for SGA president. is
planning to hold two campus talks
to discuss student concems. Mason
will hold his meetings March 10 at
the Wildcat Lodge and March 24 at
Fannhouse social fraternity house.

SGA presidential candidate Jere-
my Batcs has planned his campus
talks for tonight in the lobby of
chncland Hall at 8 pm. and next
Thursday in the Kirwan-Blanding
Complex Commons. T.A. Jones,
the third candidate for president.
said he also plans to hold forums
but has not set official dates.

The Tar Heels (24-3) moved
from third to first by beating Ir‘lori—

road game. It is the first time North
Carolina has been No. 1 since early
in the 1987-88 season.

“Polls don't really mean anything
until the final poll at the end of the
year,“ Smith said. “'I‘hen. if you
finish in the Top Ten. that means
you had an excellent season."

Smith‘s teams have been no
strangers to the Top Ten at season‘s
end. Last year‘s No. 18 finish ended
a string of 10 of 11 years with a
Top Ten final ranking. Twice, in
1982 and 1984, the Tar Heels were
