book along
for library
By Charlie McCue

There are many benefits to walking,
such as increased stamina and better
But students, faculty and staff at the
U. of Kentucky (UK) got a different kind
of benefit from walking - more library
books - when the university Panhelle-
nic Council sponsored a walk-a-thon
this fall to help out the library.
The proceeds of the walk-a-thon be-
nefitted the Margaret I. King Library,
which is the main campus library at the
university. It has been in need of books
but hasn't been able to obtain the funds
necessary to buy them.
"We chose the Margaret 1. King Lib-
rary because we wanted to give some-
thing back to the school," said Connie
Nitzken, president of the Panhellenic
Council. The Council sponsors a fund-
raiser every year.
Sorority members raised pledges be-
fore the event, a five-mile walk circling
the campus. Eight hundred sorority
members participated.
Last year, the group sponsored a bal-
loon lift-off, raising $5,000 for the
Arthritis Foundation. Although no goal
was set for this year's walk-a-thon, the
sororities would like to see at least
$10,000 raised.
This is the first year the Panhellenic
Council has sponsored a walk-a-thon.

Professor tests class with charity project

Students in Gregory Naples' business

For the past two years, Naples, an
assistant professor of accounting, has
encouraged students in his classes to
donate non-perishable food items before
each exam.
All contributions are given to Cam-
pus Ministry, which distributes the food
to local pantries. Class donations are
usually given to the Milwaukee Hunger
Task Force, according to Stephanie
Russell, assistant director of Campus

runners complete two-mile legs at a
time until they finish 10 miles. In the
past, however, some runners have com-
pleted as many as 24 miles.
Past donations have helped buy a
whirlpool, an electrocardiograph, an
electric muscle stimulator and an in-
bed scale. Last year's donations, which
set a Logan's Run record by raising
$10,000, were used to buy a neo-natal
care unit. This year's goal will be to
raise money for the purchase of a port-
able heart monitor and to help the hos-
pital's new cancer research center. Most
of the money comes from donations
gathered by the runners themselves.
"It's a way for the students of JMU to
give something back to the Harrison-
burg (Va.) community," said Brian

"This is wholly voluntary," the course
syllabus states. "It will have absolutely
no bearing on your grade. But you will
not get an examination answer sheet
absent a contribution."

Naples said the last part of the state-
ment is facetious and acknowledged his
idea is not university policy.
"I will not use my position as a profes-
sor to sway students," he said. "I im-
agine there are students who do not like
this idea.
"I am not on a crusade or anything. I
am reminding students that this is a
Jesuit university and that they have a
responsibility to their fellow man, ,as
well as their stockholders."
Naples said he stresses the food drive
because he feels business students have
an image of not being concerned with
their communities. He said the food
drive proves this is not the case.
"I think it's a good policy," said David
Born, a junior majoring in business.
"You have an obligation to people any-
way, and he just reminds you of that."

Talking newspapers ... The only time
most people hear a newspaper is when it thumps
against the front door. But for those with the right
equipment, The New York Times, the Christian
Science Monitor and the Lamed Tiller and Toiler,
among others, are voices on the radio. The voices
are those of about 150 volunteer broadcasters,
including several U. of Kansas students, who read
books, magazines, grocery ads and newspapers
tor the Kansas Audio-Reader Network (ARN), a
closed-circuit radio service for visually impaired
people in Kansas. A special radio receiver is
needed in order to hear the broadcasts. ARN loans
the receivers, valued at $80, at no charge to people
who qualify. The service received about $230,000
this year from the state through the university and
about $30,000 from private donations. "We read
current best-sellers and periodicals so that our
listeners can discuss them with their friends just
like anyone else," said David Andrews, director of
the network. Jay A. Cohen, The Uni-
