Vermont
flood
causes
shutdowns
MONTPJLIER, Vt. (AP) - Ice
jams diverted a rushing river through
the downtown of Vermont's capital
ci0y yesterday, shutting down state
,overnment and closing schools with
wiier 5 to 6 feet deep in places.
j.'This is a very serious situa-
tiotr," said Gov. Howard Dean, who
declared an emergency and called
out the National Guard to help res-
cu' people after the water rose
rapidly during the morning.
Dean made his comment while
watching a kayaker paddle in front
f the Statehouse.
* Canoes and rowboats also took to
flooded streets, as civilians and
Guardsmen rescued people from
dbwntown buildings and from atop
cars caught when the water rose
rapidly.
"It was like the flood gates
pened. It got bad fast," said fire-
fighter Gordon Bock.
} No injuries were reported.

Doctor with AIDS speaks
on HIV discrimination

by Sarah McCarthy
Dr. Pat Walsh told a group of
more than 50 students last night
about the night he lost his virginity.
"I was a second-year medical
student and I thought there was no
way it could happen to me," he said.
"We had a one-night stand and went
our separate ways."
In a speech sponsored by Future
Physicians for Social Responsibility,
Walsh discussed the ways that AIDS
affects the medical community and
how his attitude toward the medical
profession changed after going from
doctor to patient.
"It was a rude awakening to go
from being a physician to being a pa-
tient," Walsh said. "I realized how
evasive and humiliating it was to be
a patient."
As a physician who practiced
medicine with the HIV-virus and a
patient with AIDS, Walsh discussed
discrimination against physicians
and patients who are infected with
the virus.
"The problem they get into here
is that if they're not going to let
HIV-positive health care providers
practice medicine, then your going

to have to let (them) refuse to treat
people who are HIV-positive be-
cause they are putting themselves at
risk," Walsh said. "It's become such
a political issue that people aren't
really looking at it realistically."
Walsh confronted the emotional
ramifications of the disease as a doc-
'it was a rude
awakening to go from
being a physician to
being a patient.'
- Dr. Pat Walsh
tor within the medical community
and pleaded students to get tested for
the virus.
"All of you - particularly if you
want to be a physician - should get
tested just to experience what that
process is like to be on the other end
of the system," Walsh said. "Then
imagine being tested by your boss."
As an AIDS activist, Walsh dis-
cussed how the virus has affected
not only his outlook on medicine,
but how he now values life.
"I realized when I got tested that
I was living my life for -four years
down the road. I was positive that

when I reached that goal I would be
happy," Walsh said. "When I tested
positive, all of that was taken away,
and I realized all I have, all any of us
really have, is today."
Walsh contracted the virus in
1982 - shortly after AIDS was first
diagnosed in the United States -
from his first homosexual
experience.
"I think it's our responsibility as
leaders of society, and whether you
believe it or not, as college students
you are leaders of society, is to look
at your own prejudice and your own
hang-ups and deal with those first
and then start to educate others."
Students who attended Walsh's
speech said they were struck by his
honest approach to AIDS issues.
"As a speaker, he painted a very
true picture," LSA junior Allen
Hakimi said. "It shook me up and
some parts made me uncomfortable,
but it opened my eyes."
LSA senior Saima Khan, who or-
ganized Walsh's visit for the group,
said, "He said everything pre-med
students wanted to hear. It helped
show how much people need to be
educated. Now maybe next week we
can act."
