Both sides will have something
to gain when the United States
and Soviet Union begin new arms
negotiations Jan. 7 and 8 in
Geneva, Switzerland, two UNL
Soviet experts said.
The meeting represents the first
f&ce-to-face talks between the
superpowers on strategic and
medium-range nuclear weapons
in a year. It will be the first U.S.
Soviet negotiations on space
weapons since 1979.
The Soviets walked out of nu
clear arms talks last year in
protest ofU-S. deployment of new
missiles in Europe.
Secretary of State George
Shultz and Soviet Foreign Minis-
ter Andrei Gromyko will repre

round of talks.
UNL's Hiromi Teratani, a visit
ing professor of Soviet studies
from Tokyo, said the Soviets have
depressed their econ omy by spend
ing so much on the military. There
is a "great struggle among the
Kremlin elite" over how to solve
the problem, Teratani said. The
arms talks, if successful, may offer
them a chance to change their

do would be to win a couple

"Then to end up with almost
$15,000 was incredible."

"As a concensus, it was a lot

People may say $16.50 cant buy a let
these days, but for Jill Hoffman, a 20-year-old
business administration student
at UNL, it bought the ticket to the chance
of a lifetime. Hoffman, who stood in line
for four days to get a ticket, was the lucky
recipient of a dance on stage with singer
Bruce Springsteen, during his Lincoln
concert Nov. 18.
In the television video of his song "Danc
ing in the Dark," Springsteen invites a
young woman on stage for a dance.
"A friend told me about the video, but I
never thought he'd really do it," she said.

During an interlude to his "Dancing in
the Dark" number, Springsteen walked
across the front of the stage, looking out
on the crowd and exchanging smiles with
the audience, Hoffman said, -"
Tim Boughn, a friend standing next to,
Hoffman urged her up toward the stage,
but she said she never dreamt she would

on the stage.. -
"I was nervous, but there wasn't enough
time to be really scared," she said.
Hoffman said the two smiled and laugh
ed during those 60 seconds and he asked
her if she was having fun. During a closer
step, he pointed at the dimple on the
right side of her fat and smiled, she said.
Hoffman said the loud music made it
hard to hear what Springsteen was say
ing. It happened so fast, it's hard to
remember exactly what he said, she said.
As the song ended, they exchanged a
bow and an extended kiss on stage.
"He's a very good kisser," she said. "He's
even better looking up close. His eyes
sparkle when he smiles."
Springsteen thanked her for the dance,
but she quickly replied, "No, thank you."
Hoffman said her brother, J. Hoffman,
who also was at the concert, recognized
her instantly. Other friends, seated farther
away, didn't know it was her until they
saw her later.
A co-worker of Hoffman's father was
talking about the incident at the office
the next day. Ron Hoffman, knowing it
was her daughter, let the co-workeriln-ish
his story without interrupting.
"You should've seen the kiss he planted
on that girl," the co-worker told him.
"Having that many people looking at
you at one time doesn't happen-very
often," she said, "and to be on stage with
