The Harrison seniors say that half to three-fourths of their high school's 1,000 students consume alcohol a rate probably no higher than that in any Tristate high school, they say. According to the CDC study, alcohol is the overwhelming drug of choice among adolescents, almost five times as popular as marijuana and 22 times more popular than any form of cocaine. So why are American teen-agers a generation raised on substance abuse education and the pleas of SADD, MADD and Nancy Reagan (Please see DRINK, back page, this section) Families deal with alcoholE-1. BY KRISTA RAMSEY The Cincinnati Enquirer The second-period senior government class at Harrison High School is a lot like any group of teen-agers, anywhere. Open. Friendly. Very verbal. One minute bursting with adult perception, the next relying on adolescent wit. . It's no surprise, then, that the 17- and 18-year-olds should have strong opinions on a subject that hits home with most adolescents teen-agers and alcohol. Nationally, half of all American teens drink, according to a 1990 study by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

The Alamo? The arts' economic contribution beats the Bengals' and rivals the Reds' BY PATRICIA GALLAGHER The Cincinnati Enquirer Cincinnati's eight major arts organizations make a $102 million impact on the city's economy each year, a new report shows. In the first local study of its kind, a committee formed by the Cincinnati Institute of Fine Arts says: The production of arts in Greater Cincinnati makes a $67 million annual impact. Spending by patrons of the arts accounts for another $35 million each year. Issued at a time when arts groups here and across the country are suffering from declining attendance and eroding finances, the report provides the first hard data about how important arts are to Cincinnati's economic health, according to co-chairmen of the committee that compiled it. "It was stronger than I expected," said Daniel W. LeBlond, who heads the institute's Arts Funding Review Committee with David J. Joseph Jr. What that strength means for the future of arts in Cincinnati is not known, LeBlond and Joseph said.

"Dr. Kevorkian's actions detract from the discussion," said Quill, who last March recounted in the New England Journal of Medicine his agonized decision to give a young leukemia patient enough barbiturates to kill herself. "It makes people fearful of extremist doctors." Quill said he is bothered that Kevorkian seems so enthusiastic about helping patients die. "The profession only takes on this role reluctantly," he said. Proponents of physician-assisted suicide say Kevorkian's free-lance actions illustrate why states need laws defining the terms under which physicians may participate in intentional death. Opponents, who argue such laws would lead to abuses, point to Kevorkian with a we-told-you-so air of vindication. Q Forum Arts & Leisure Editorials '. D-2 Calendar K-2 Columnists ..D-3 Books K-5 Boston Globe The suffering patients who beg him for a medicalized suicide, such as the two Michigan women whose deaths he facilitated last week, call Dr. Jack Kevorkian an angel of mercy. It is an image the retired pathologist has promoted in writings and television appearances since a machine of his own invention last year was used to kill an Oregon woman with early-stage Alzheimer's disease. But others on both sides of the growing U.S. debate on patients' rights to enlist doctors in their suicides call Kevorkian a dangerous crackpot. They point out that Kevorkian is acting independently in deciding which patients to assist in their wish to die. Also troubling to many doctors, lawyers and ethicists is that none of the three women whose suicides he assisted were in the terminal stages of illness. In fact, one woman who died last week Election guide With about one week to Election Day, the Tuesday Extra section of The Enquirer will bring readers a special guide to candidates and issues in their communities.

"It doesn't seem logical," Ann Davis, a New England Medical Center gynecologist, said of the suicide of 53-year-old Marjorie Wantz. Normally, Davis said, pelvic inflammatory disorder is a short-term, treatable disease, not one that causes intractable pain for years, as Wantz contended. "Clearly she wasn't getting appropriate medical care," said Dr. Christine Cassel, a University of Chicago physician and medical ethicist. "We have ways of Did you remember?
