Female AIDS patient shuns despair to help others
By Robin Wessels
Kansas State Collegian
Kansas State U.
Rebecca Rene had several strikes
against her from the beginning - her
parents were alcoholics and she was
moved from one foster home to another.
"As a kid you are immortal. You think
you have the rest of your life," the 20-
But in July 1988, all that went down
the tubes, she said, because Rene tested
positive for the acquired immune defi-
ciency syndrome virus. "I was tested six
times before I really believed it. Believe
it. Nice people get AIDS. It's an indis-
Rene spoke this spring at the
Manhattan Regional Conference on
Independent Living at Kansas State U.
to help teach how to live with the disease.
"I don't feel comfortable talking about
the virus and how to get it," she said. "It's
not relavent how I got it. The problem is
that I have it."
Rene, who attends college in Joplin,
Mo., suffers from all of the AIDS symp-
toms: fatigue, night sweats, chills or low-
grade fever, sore throat, coughs, diar-
rhea, weight loss and shortness of breath.
She tried to overdose on pills when she
first realized she had AIDS. "When I
woke up, which wasn't planned, I had a
new outlook," she said. "I had a purpose."
Rene now volunteers with the Four
State Community AIDS Project in
Joplin. Through the project, a non-profit
AIDS education organization, Rene has
been helping others understand AIDS
and supporting those who have it.
Rene plans to get a degree in art. "If I
live long enough to finish," she said.
But at this point she's not sure she will
even be able to keep a job. She has
already been fired from two jobs because
"It's a hurtful disease. Sometimes all I
can do is cry and pray," she said. "I do a
lot of both."

Joplin, Mo., college student tested positive for AIDS in July 1988.
BLack of day care threatens education
Faculty perks cut ... Dartmouth
College became only the second Ivy
League institution to eliminate
tuition grants for children of facul-
ty this summer. "In the old days
tuition grants used to be used as an
incentive before faculty salaries
started going up," said Tuition Aid
Program Administrator Robert
Hage. Faculty members who
worked prior to June 30, 1988 are
still eligible for $1,000 for their chil-
dren to attend Dartmouth, but fac-
ulty who arrived after that will not
get anything. Harvard U. is the
only other Ivy League school that
doesn't provide tuition aid for
employees. Steve Olds, The

Search and destroy... "This is a col-
lege campus -- not a war zone,"
committee members declared in a
U. of Alabama study that deter-
mined semi-automatic and auto-
matic weapons carried by campus
police were "unnecesary and
unwarranted." Police Chief Irvin
Fields purchased several semi-
automatic pistols and several auto-
matic shotguns after it was deter-
mined 30 percent of the force's old
weapons malfunctioned during
routine firing. "Besides the prob-
lem with the old pistols, we felt we
needed a weapon that was less
obtrusive and less threatening,"
Fields said. "For a campus environ-
ment, you like to keep as low a pro-
file as you can when it comes to
being armed." In addition, the
report criticized the creation of a
special S.W.A.T.-like unit because
the primary purpose of such a unit
was "to neutralize (kill ifnecessary)
an offender or offenders who are
holdinghostages." ETrey Garrison,

Half the students who apply for day-
care services are turned away by
Humboldt State U.'s Children's Center,
and HSU students say insufficient child-
care services threaten their education.
"I cried when I found out I wasn't going
to be able to get Hilary in the center,"
Constance Huggins said.
Huggins, a single mother and a multi-
ple subjects graduate student, is not
alone in her dilemma. Center Director
Trudi Walker said there are not enough
funds or space to meet all students'
needs. "There's definitely people that
can't go to school or have to take a
reduced load because they can't get into
the Children's Center," she said. "People
end up taking out student loans to pay
for day care."
Christine Wentholt, Student
Legislative liaison to the Children's
Center, said re-entry students - most
with children - make up one-third of
"Most of those people complain there's
no adequate child care," Wentholt said.
Walker said insufficient child care is a
problem that affects students through-
out the California State University sys-
Allison Weber, California State
Student Association chairwoman, said
CSSA has been pushing for child care for
"It comes down to an access issue,"
Weber said. "The average student today
is no longer an 18-year-old white male."
Although there are difficulties with
finding child care, the situation might
California Gov. George Deukmejian's
proposed 1989-90 budget allocated
$730,000 for the CSU system's child care.
In the tight budget expected for next
year, child care was the only new budget
item given all the funding requested.

Three-year-olds (from left) Savanna Marble, Jessie Gellman and Robin Miller play "school" at
Humboldt State U.'s Children's Center in Arcata, Calif.
in 1971 by a group of students who need-
ed child-care services. It serves 60 chil-
dren of 80 students, with the same num-
ber of students on the waiting list. More
than half the students are single women.
Each child costs the center $2,000.
Fees for the services are in accordance
with the student's income. Because the
majority of students who use the center
are on financial aid, welfare or are work-
ing part-time, most do not pay fees,
Funding for the center comes from var-
ious sources. The Associated Students,
the state Department of Education, the
Federal Food Program, parent fees, the
governor's budget and fund-raising
efforts contribute to the center.
