Drug reduces riSk of stroke, study finds


By Melissa Rosenthal

A drug originally used to lower
cholesterol can reduce the risk of
stroke and bean attack, two UK re-
searchers announced yesterday.

The drug. Lovastatin, also fights
the early build-up of plaque in the
arteries. said Dr. Byron Young,

said Julius Power, director of the
Cartography Lab. “We’re in the
dungeon over here in (White Hall)
Classroom Building. It’s not much
space. but it's usable space.”

For many years, Miller Hall has
been the home of various pro-
grams, including the Undergradu-
ate Advising Center, the College of
Architecture, the Honors Program,
the geography department and the
cartography lab.

Jack Blanton. vice chancellor of
administration. said construction
crews will gut the inside of Miller
Hall for a complete renovation and
install an elevator handicapped ac-
cessible restrooms and side en-
trances that are wheelchair accessi-
ble from the ground level.

The $2 million project. which is
funded by money left over from
President Charles Wethington and
Chancellor for the Lexington Carn-

budgets, also will include cleaning

“When Miller Hall is finished, it
will be more efficient for juries be-
cause of the wide halls and more
wall space for hanging pictures,"
Graves said.

Hugh Johnson. an architecture
senior said the current classroom
arrangements are bearable because
they are only temporary.

Set up of computer sites
eases registration woes


By Brant Welch
Senior Staff Writer


Since setting up computer tenni-
nals across campus to assist stu-
dents with class registration, offi-
cials say things are back on track.

The registrar’s office decided to
set up the sites Thursday after en-
countering numerous technical
problems with the new UK—VIP tel-
ephone registration system.

UK—VIP was billed as an end to
registration hassles, but its glitches
infuriated many students.

“The terminal sites seem to have
provided adequate capacities to get
the registration completed and get
students registered for classes," UK

Cafe Shahrazad
gives UK a taste
of Arabian fare

By Tammy Gay
Senior Staff Writer



Everyone will have the opportu-
nity today to experience Arabic cul-
ture ~ » including food, artifacts and
music w without leaving campus.

The Arab Student Union is spon-
soring “Cafe Shahrazad,” which
continues in its final day at 245 Stu~
dent Center.

“Our mission is to present our
culture in an intemational way."
said club president Omar Ayyash.
who was born in Jordan.

Aseel Al-Banna, a member of the
club who is from Iraq, said prices
were set as low as possible to draw
people to the event and expose
them to Arabic life.

“It's a way to educate people
about our culture." Al-Banna said.

The café has a wide variety of
snacks, desserts and beverages.

Choices include sambousak. a
baked triangle bread pocket stuffed
with spinach. meat or cheese; bakla-
va. a delicate pastry filled with wal-
nuts and cinnamon and covered in
syrup; finger. a flaky filo dough
covered with ground cashews, syr-
up and mango juice; guava juice
and mint tea.

The club also is offering Turkish
coffee for free.

Along with the food. the club has
set up displays around the room.
One comer of the room‘s floor is
covered with a rug. and decorative
pillows lean against the wall. Al-
Banna said sitting on the mg and
leaning against one of the pillows
would be a typical way for someone
of 3 Arabic culture to sit.

Several videos, detailing subjects
like belly-dancing. and Arabic poet-
ry and singing, also are available to
watch. and music adds ambience to
the entire cafe.

Al-Banna said club members
thought it would add to the atmos-
phere to have the music playing as
guests ate their food.

Two civil engineering students
were enjoying that atmosphere yes-

Paul Johansson. a junior. tried
baklava, sambousak and mango
juice. He said he decided to sample
the fare because his wife is taking
an Arabic class this year. and he
likes the food.

said she has studied Arabic culture
and is a belly-dancer.

The club also is sponsonng a par-

registrar Randall Dahl said.

But Dahl added that most stu-
dents still are registering by tele-

“In fact, through (Tuesday), two-
thirds of all the people that had reg-
istered had registered by tele-
phone,” he said.

The terminal sites, however. will
remain open throughout registra-
tion. which ends as scheduled on
Nov. 18.

Students are eligible to use the
terminals only on the second and
third days of their particular regis-
tration window, Dahl said.

On the second day. students may
use the terminal sites at the time de—
termined by the last digit of their

social security numbers.

There are no time constraints for
when students may register by the
terminals on their third day.

Though students have been com-
plaining of problems with UK-VIP.
Dahl said the terminal sites have
been less than packed.

“There is not a consistent flow of
people coming up to the terminals."
he said.

“There are times we don't have
anybody at the terminals. then all of
a sudden. in between classes, we’ll
have 75 students at the termrnals."

Dahl said there is an adequate
number of terminal operators at var»

Chad Espeland grew up With
three older sisters in his family.
but he always wanted a brother.

A year ago. the UK junior got
his wish.

Espeland became a volunteer
for Big Brothers/Big Sisters of
Lexington, and he now spends
several hours each week as a
male role model for an active
1 1-year-old boy.

Espeland said he‘s just a typi-
cal student wrth the usual con-
cerns about tight finances and
time constraints. But being a big
brother gives him something
else to focus on.

“It doesn‘t take money all the
time." Espeland said of the pro
gram. “It's something you can
work through. If you can put
forth the time. it gives you an
enjoyable experience.

“The kids really do like it
when someone is there filling
the void.“

Ernie Hatfield, director of Big
Brothers/Big Sisters of Lexing-
ton. said the program is one of
the most important services in
Lexington for single-parent fam-

portance of education to the
kids." she said.

“When we were first

House approves 1-69 proposal


Associated Press


House of Representatives approved
and sent the Senate a resolution that
would route proposed Interstate 69
near westem Kentucky communi-
ties along U.S. 60.

The resolution specifies the inter-
state would follow “a Kentucky
com'dor centered on the cities of
Henderson, Sturgis, Smithland, Pa-
ducah. Bardwell and Hickman."

US. Rep. Tom Barlow, D-lst
District, said, “the tnain thing is that
by designating these locator towns,
it locks (1-69) into Kentucky" in-
stead of southern Illinois.

“This is just the one-yard line,"
with 99 yards to go, Barlow said by
telephone from Washington.

Union County Judge-executive
Jimmy Veatch said an interstate
would boost economic development
in the area.

“We do not have a good transpor-
tation system,“ Veatch observed,
noting that the only federal high-
way in Union County is the narrow,
two-lane US. 60.

The precise route won‘t be
known until engineering and feasi-
bility studies and an economic anal-
ysis can be performed.

Barlow said that may not begin
for three or four years.

“We're looking at roads that

probably won‘t be fully completed
for l2 to l5 years,“ Barlow said.

The project is pan of a multi-
statc campaign to extend 1-69 from
Indianapolis to Houston.

Officials in eight states along the
route are awaiting word as to
whether the I994 federal fiscal year
budget includes money for a 12- to

Minister Yitzhak Rabin visits the
White House tomorrow.

“I would be pleased if it did, but
the truth is we have no reason to be-
lieve that anything will be happen-
ing Friday," the president said.

He said he had asked the Justice
Department to review a request
from Rabin to cut the life sentence
of spy Jonathan Pollard to 10 years.
Pollard, a former US Navy intelli—
gence analyst. was convicted in
1987 of espionage for selling classi-
fied documents to Israel.

Clinton opened the news confer-
ence by reading a long list of ad-
ministration accomplishments, in-
cluding enactment of the family
leave law and his deficit-reduction

”We are finally tackling issues
that are central to the lives of all
Americans, replacing gridlock and
inaction with progress and pursuit
of the common good,” the president

With crime a politically potent is-
sue. the president indicated that he
would make crime-fighting the cen-

terpiece of his State of the Union
address in January.

“What you will see from us over
the next several months is a sus-
tained, organized. disciplined ap-
proach so that we don‘t just respond
to the honor we all feel when a lit-
tle kid gets shot or when these
children plan their funerals," the
president said.

He said the crime bill being de-
bated on the Senate floor would
help by authorizing 100,000 police
officers on the street.

“But we have to rebuild families
and communities in this country,”
the president said. “We‘ve got to
take more responsibility for these
little kids before they grow up and
start shooting each other. We have
to find ways to offer hope and to re-
connect people." He said a key to
solving the problem was making
sure jobs are available for everyone.

Clinton said the administration
was giving “a lot of consideration"
to a proposal from Sen. Daniel Pat-
rick Moynihan, D-N.Y., for huge
tax increases on ammunition like

.50-calibcr bullets and “talon” bul-
lets that have razor-sharp petals and
travel sideways through soft tissue.

However, the president wondered
“whether we ought not just to get
rid of those bullets" if they are
made solely for having a devastat-
ing effect on their targets.

On foreign policy, Clinton indi-
cated there was little he could to re-
duce the suffering in Bosnia and

He said none of the parties in
Bosnia is willing to make peace on
terms acceptable to the others.

“All we can do,” Clinton said, “is
to try to make sure that we mini-
mize the human loss coming on for
this winter." If Sarajevo is seriously
shelled, Clinton said. a NATO op-
tion to use air strikes should be “an
actual live option and not just
something on the books."

On Haiti, Clinton showed no
willingness to relax a UN. embar-

If a student feels he or she can’t

“Escapades has been real suc-

wait to be matched," he said. add-
ing that it takes about two years to
match a child with a volunteer.

Requirements to be a volunteer
for Escapades are basically the
same as being a big brother or big
