New parking

A shortage of money and an abundance of
construction will add up to few new
studentparking spaces at the University
of Nebraska-Lincoln in coming years, one
AS UN representative said.
Mark Goldfcdcr, ASUN representative to
the Parking Advisory Committee, said the out
look for more parking spaces at UNL was grim,
especially because construction on the 10lh
Street viaduct and widening of Holdrcgc Street
would erase 400 to 450 stu
dent spaces by next summer.
A proposal for a S10 mil
lion on-campus parking ga
rage looks even less likely,
because the Parking Advi
sory Board already has mil
lions of dollars in bonds to
repay before any more bonds
can be issued, Goldfcdcr said.
But, he said, “Something has got to be

Gov. Bill Clinton speaks to a crowd of Democratic supporters Saturday during a rally at the Iowa State Fairgrounds
in Des Moines.
Clinton emphasizes change
Presidential nominee
addresses students,
unions on Iowa visit
By Dionne Searcey
Senior Editor
DES MOINES, Iowa — Democratic
presidential nominee Bill Clinton
urged Iowans Saturday not to fear a
change in the presidency.
“This is clearly a race of hope against
fear,” Clinton said. “The whole argument of
the Bushcrowdisthatlhingscould be worse.
But my whole argument is that things could
be better.”
The Arkansas governor, sleeves rolled
up, pounded out his message of change to
more than 3,(XX) people at the Iowa Slate
“No one person running for president can
protect you from all the changes in the
world,” he said. “We have to make change
our friend, not our enemy.”
Clinton rehashed his proposals for health
care, tougher child-sup
port laws and again criti
cized Bush for the poor
economic situation in the
United States.
“George Bush asked
you to watch your wal
let,” he said. “You ought
to. He’s been picking it for four years.”
Clinton singled out young adults as one
group whose wallets were especially thin.
However, he said, that shouldn’t prevent
them from attending college.
“1 want the young people of America to
get a college education by open ing the doors
of college education to all Americans with
out regard to finances,” he said.
But, Clinton said, students must recipro
cate for loans they get to attend college.
Clinton said he would ask college graduates
to pay back loans by serving for two years in
such positions as teachers, police officers or
health-care workers at reduced wages.
The students who chose not to go to a
four-year college could receive two years ol
apprenticeship training, Clinton said. Those
students would be able to “get a good job, not
a dead-end job,” he said.
Eddie Bufkin, a sophomore at Drake
University in Dcs Moines, said he hoped
Clinton could help his financial situation.
“I’ve been a student while George Bush
was in office and have gotten less (financial)
aid,” Bufkin, an English and history major,
Bulkin said Clinton’s proposals for rc

New research suggests that al
cohol abuse leads college stu
dents to continue engaging in
risky sexual behaviordespite their
knowledge of AIDS, a UNL instruc
tor said Friday.
Alcohol abuse increases the likeli
hood of unplanned sex and multiple
partners, and it decreases condom use,
David Hunnicutl said. He leaches in
the School of Health, Physical Educa
tion and Recreation at the University
of Nebraska-Lincoln.
“The recommendation right now
is that if you want to get a handle on
your HIV problem, gel a handle on
your alcohol problem because the
two arc inseparable,” he said.
Hunnicutt, education director of
the Alcoholism and Drug AbuseCoun
cil of Nebraska, described the link
between HIV and alcohol abuse on
college campuses as part of the Ne
braska Wesleyan University Forum.
Sexual and drinking behaviors be
gin before college, Hunnicutt said, so
it’s necessary to study these bchav iors
during junior and senior high school.
According to several studies, he
said, half of the 20 million junior and
senior high school students in the
United States drink regularly. Of
those, 33 percent binge-drink, or con
sume more than five drinks at one
silting. Junior and senior high school
students consume 35 percent of all
wine coolers sold in the United Stales,
Hunnicutl said, and drink more than
one billion cans of beer a year.
These numbers increase when high
school graduates enter college, he
“Drinking has become common
place on college campuses,” he said.
“It has become an integral part of
college life.”
Eighty percent of college students
drink regularly, Hunnicutl said, and
half of those reported intoxication
within the last two weeks. These stu
dents consume 4.4 billion cans of
beer, or 34 gallons per person, a year.
The figure for sexually active col
lege students also is 80 percent,
Hunnicutl said. Half of those students
