Hill says he won’t resign CHE position despite controversy

The board could not vote on the
resolution yesterday because it did
not have quorum. Only three of the
eight student body presidents

February l0. Witt.

Kappa Kappa Gamma President
Katy Burke. a nursing junior. said
that others in the University com-
munity helped her chapter cele-

“We really appreciate the recep-

community has given us." Burke
said. “The ads and personals in the
Kernel have been great."

The events held this week iti-

and a “wear your letters" day.

“Everybody in the chapter has

Gina LaCharite. who has served
as the Kappa’s historian tor ll)
years. said she is proud ol the Beta

“We've provided the campus

years and have always sponsored

LaCharite said.

LaCharite said that the image the
Beta Chi chapter has on UK has an
impact on the Lexington communi-

“The actions of our actives on

The week's highlight was last

the Kappa‘s proceeds from the
lip sync contest went toward its na-

“We wanted to share our 'dlllll’

Another activnics is a tea with
alumni on Sunday. More than 700
Beta Chi alumni live in the Lexing-

Campus program helping people kick the smoking habit

Contributing Writer

After designing a program six
years ago to help himself quit
smoking Thomas M. Cooper wants
to help others kick the habit too.

Richard R. Clayton. a sociology
professor and the scientific director
for the UK Center for Prevention
Research, joined Cooper. an oral
health sciences professor, in 1085
to develop the groupcriented
smoking-cessation program.

More than 600 patients have en-
tered the program, active in hospi-
tals and other workplaces in Lex-

While enrollment in the program
costs 8500 it‘s siriall compared to
the cost ot supporting a smoking
habit. Cooper said. At 81.25 per

pack. someone who smokes one
pack a day will spend about
$456.25 a year.

A small percentage of royalties
are gained from the sale of a book
used in the program, but most of
the proceeds go toward research.

Lita Henry, who participated in

the program, annually commemo-

rates the day she quit smoking

“It’s kind of like your birthday.
You remember that day," Henry

The results of the first Cooper/
Clayton Method to Stop Smoking
showed that 45.3 percent of the pa—
tients were non-smokers after one
year and 36.1 percent were not
smoking after three years.

No other program has reported a
success rate that high, according to

Cooper and Clayton.

The program runs for 2-1 weeks
and is designed for heavy smokers
-—— those who smoke at least 25 cigv
arettes a day.

The first two weeks are spent
charting the pattern of smoking and
determining how many cigarettes
the patient smokes a day.

For the next 22 weeks the patient
is given a nicotine substitute prod-
uct called Nicorette and their nico-
tine intake is slowly reduced over
that time.

Patients also attend weekly group
meetings during the 24-week pro-


“Behavior modification is impor—

tant in preventing a relapse,” Clay-
ton said. “l)uring the meetings, at-
tention is focused on identifying
and avoiding situations with a high
potential tor relapse, developing
skills for resisting periods of crav-
ing, coping Wllh depression and be—
reavement over cigarette loss and

The program’s objective is to
gradually re-educate the brain to
think that Iero nicotine in the
bloodstream is normal, Cooper

Cooper said that the meetings‘
importance is demonstrated by the
fact that most patients who do not
stop smoking failed to attend the
meetings regularly.

Hill added th‘ he remains op»
posed to House Bill 60, a piece of
legislation sponsored by the board
and several state legislators that
would give students more say in
the selection process of the CHE
student member.

Hill claims that's where the disa-
greenicnt ends.

Btit student leaders say they
don't buy that argument.

“He‘s told me personally that he
thinks the student body presidents

are incompetent," said John Elder,
the board‘s state coordinator for
governmental relations. “The only
time he contacts (student body
presidents) is if it’s absolutely cru-
cial, or they call him.

“If he doesn’t think students are
competent, he ought to be working
with them, not ignoring them. He‘s
the connection with the council so
he ought to be the one to guide us
and lead us. He has not shown any
effort to do so. no matter. what he

said that he probably cannot work

law student. “It's ridiculous for
them to stir this kind of mess over

Hill said that he and the student
representatives had “been in step”
before the board decided to sponsor
House Bill 60.

He said that their efforts to force
him to resign are “idiotic“ and said
the student body presidents “ought
to be impeached."

necessarily be candidates for the

that possibility.

Mary Sue Coleman was on the
selection committee that chose for-
mer UK president David Roselle.
and political science professor
Malcolm Jewell said he thinks Ro-
sellc’s departure this year may
have influenced her decision.

“My guess is she would have
been more likely to stay if Doctor
Roselle had stayed," Jewell said.
“She had a great deal of confidence
in him.

“You‘ve got great uncertainty in
the University right now about
leadership and the impact the
governor is going to have on the

University." he said.

The announcement of the Cole-
mans‘ departure has created some
uncertainty also about the status of
the political science department,
which has lost several senior pro-
fessors in the past few years, and
the likelihood of other professors
leaving the lTnivcrsity.

“I think that their decision will
prompt a number of people in the
department to reconsider their deci-
sions“ with regard to opportunities
at other schools. Yanarella said.
“There may be additional people
looking in the market and thinking
about leaving. The departure of a
senior person like Ken also has
very serious implications for the
character and quality of our under-
graduate and graduate programs."

And many of Cooper’s patients

“As a group we're very open, we
share the good occurrences and the
bad occurrences. The rest of us in
the group can learn from the exper-
iences of others,” said J ulane Line-
baugh, who smoked for 30 years
and has not had a cigarette since
last October. “This is the only way
I could have stopped. I know that."

Henry, who has not smoked a
cigarette in four years, was so im-
pressed by the program that she is
being trained to lead some of the
program’s group meetings.

The Cooper/Clayton Method
owes its success to three unique


qualities, Cooper said.

The first is that all patients who
report being smoke-free are tested
with a carbon dioxide meter, elimi-
nating inaccurate success rates.

“This study is unique because it
is one of few with a three year fol-
low-up," Cooper said. “Also, most
research shows that it is harder for
women to quit smoking. but the
women in our study had a higher
success rate than the men.“

Another reason for the program‘s
success is peer pressure, Cooper
said. Since the programs are admin-
istered in the workplace, the pa-
tients can watch one another and
reinforce what has been discussed
in the meetings, he said.
