Bede calls Week on the Wagon 9 a tremendous success
By Kent Wameke
"The Week on the Wagon" was a tremendous success in
terms of participation in the week's activities and the
number of people abstaining, the chairwoman of the Pan
hellenic Alcohol Awareness committee said.
"In my eyes, the project went over very well and we re
ceived a lot of favorable comments from state legislators,
students on campus and even Paul Harvey," Sandy Bede
The project, which was co-sponsored by the Alcohol
Awareness committee and Alpha Tau Omega and Sipna
Phi .Epsilon fraternities, was designed to promote public
concern about alcohol on the UNL campus and make
people aware that students are concerned about it.
In addition to having people not drink for a week,
other activities during the week promoted alcohol aware
ness and raised money for the All University Fund.
Kent Russell spoke to a crowd of about 150 in the Ne
braska Union Tuesday night. Russell, an Alcoholics
Anonymous member, told of living in a fraternity house,
becoming an alcoholic and reforming.
"His speech made the people in the audience really
look at themselves individually and see how easy it is for
something like alcohol to take over," Bede said.
On Wednesday night, the ATO and Sigma Phi Epsilon
houses held a backgammon and card party. Thursday the
houses sponsored roller skating at the Arena Roller Skat
Saturday, dpnuts and hot chocolate were sold in' the
plaza in front of the Nebraska Union.
. "The highlight of the week was a dance Saturday night
at the Union with Blackberry Winter playing," Bede said.
"We had close to 400 people attending and we raised a lot
of money." ,
Lee Chapin of the Sigma Phi Epsilon house said his
house had 100 percent participation in staying, on the
wagon and that most of the members in the house
thought the week was fun. .
"It was very good for us as individuals to see what it
would be like to go for a week without drinking," Chapin
said. "And I was amazed at the success there was."
Chapin said he did not know of any other houses that
stayed off the wagon for the week, besides their house
and the ATO house, but that some house presidents did
take the challenge.
Hupp said that the ATOs had excellent participation in
their house and although he is not sure everyone didn't
drink, no one was ever against the idea.
Bede said people can now see that someone is doing
something about alcohol on the UNL campus and that a
mature effort went into planning and participating in the
"Week on the Wagon."
The Native American Art Show is being displayed in
the second floor of the Nebraska Union. The last date is
