But drinking ban
still has approval
of UNL leaders
By Lee Rood
Four university officials agree with
ASUN's decision to review t'NL's cur
rent alcohol policy, even though they
approve of the policy.
James Orlesen, interim vice chan
cellor for student affairs and a member
of the committee to review the policy,
said the decision was appropriate. But
given Nebraska's current drinking age
of 21, Griesen said, he doubts the pol
icy will change much.
Housing Director Douglas Zatechka,
also a committee member, said the dry
campus policy the university holds Is In
line with many schools' policies.
With the drinking age changing in
many states, Zatechka said, there is a
lot of "gnashing of teeth" to try to
change other wet campuses back to dry
Schools that faced opposition to
their dry campuses in the past now are
feeling good about their decision,

Jayne Wade Anderson, director or
Greek affairs, said the current policy
was "more than adequate" considering
the state's legal drinking age.
UNL's current policy says no alco
holic beverages are to be carried across
UNL property or allowed in any frater
nity, sorority or residence hall.
John Yost, associate to UNL Chan
cellor Martin Massengale, said the pol
Statistics supplied by the Lin
coln Council on Alcoholism and
Drugs suggest higher drinking-age
laws can reduce the number of
young people arrested for driving
while intoxicated (DWI).
Ron Dade, research analyst for
LCAD, said those statistics show
that the most frequent age of DWI
offenders has risen from 20 to 22
years since the Nebraska drinking
age was raised from 20 to 21 in 1985.
Dade said he believes the change
is due to the availability of alcohol.

icy, originally devised by the Board of
Regents, has been strictly enforced.
Some critics of the current policy
say it prompts students to drive off
university grounds to drink, which may
lead to drunk driving.
Zatechka said he does not disagree
with the current policy, but there may
be ways to refine 'it and make it more
able to get alcohol legally, he said,
most of those arrested for DWI are
moving up into a higher age bracket.
The 19 to-24 age group always has
been the most likely to produce
offenders, Dade said, because they
have the the most freedom and
money to spend.
