I Basta, who has been a rape educa tor for 3 1/2 years, spoke to about 350 Students as part of the Rape Education Awareness and on-Campus Training program sponsored by Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity and Kappa Alpha Theta Sorority. Basta, a student at the Uni versity of Missouri-Columbia, is an alumnus of Pi Kappa Phi. Basta used a calculator to inform students about rape statistics. A rape is reported every 1.3 min utes, Basta said, and about 683,000 rapes are reported each year. Rape statistics arc getting worse, not better, he said. The definition of rape is vague, Basta said. His dictionary does not even list the definition, he said. Because of that vagueness, Basta said, most people arc “clueless” about what is and isn’t considered a sexual crime. Basta defined rape as forced inter course without consent. It is an act of violence, Basta said, and it can happen to men and women. Women are the main victimsof the crime, however, he said. At one point, Basta said he wanted to address the women in the audience, and held up masking tape as a symbol of silence. Too often, women arc the silenced parters of sexual crimes, he said. . Basta said the best weapon a vic tim could use was the word “no.”The - 44 When the word ‘no ’ comes out of her mouth, it is time to close shop and go home. Basta rape educator -f* - word is most effective when the vic tim looks the attacker straight in the eye, he said. Basta said women should trust their instincts. “Don’t go with someone you don’t feel comfortable with,” he said. Later, Basta held up a basketball, and said it represented men’s prob lems with rape. Men often think “no” means “maybe” or “yes,” Basta said. “When the word ‘no’comes out of her mouth, it is time to close shop and go home,” Basta said. Basta displayed a beer can, and said that 95 percent of rape cases involved alcohol. Basta said alcohol was the No. 1 contributing factor in date rape. If the offender is drunk and out of control when the rape occurs, then the chances of being convicted are very high, he said. Finally, Basta said a key symbol ized safety. Money is not available on most college campuses to provide a com pletely safe environment, he said. The key to safety and lowering sexual crimes is in the hands of stu dents, he said. Escort service to open branch on East Campus By Trish Spencer Staff Reporter_ The Campus Escort Service and the Residence Hall Association arc taking steps to increase safety on East Campus and near a parking lot on City Campus. A branch ol the Campus Escort Service will open on the University of Ncbraska Lincoln’s East Campus next se mester, Selleck said at Monday _ ng. The branch will operate out ol Burr Residence Hall and will be open from 6:30 p.m. to midnight. Prall said the service would stop at midnight be cause that was when C.Y. Thompson Library and the Burr Residence Hall desk closed. Prall said he needed 60 students to help with the service. Prall said he also was trying to persuade the Campus Recreation Cen ter to unlock a gate that leads to Vine Street from the northeast comer of the Cathcr-Pound fields at 17th and Vine streets. Opening the gate would in crease safely for students in Sandoz and Abel residence halls, he said, by shortening the path students take to and from the parking lot southeast of the fields. RHA President Matt Hammons said he thought the gate was locked to protect the fields from vandalism. Prall said he thought unlocking the gate would cost the university noth ing. But Prall said Doug Zatcchka, director of UNL Housing, told him that the housing office would pay for any expenses.. Prall asked for RHA members’ support in trying to get the gate un locked and a light nearby turned on. Prall and Zatcchka are meeting with campus recreation officials this week to talk about opening the gate. |-POLICE REPORT--1 Beginning midnight Friday 8:09 a.m. — Motorcycle pushed over, parking lot north of Cathcr Pound-Neihardt Complex, Sl(X). , 10:50 a.m. — Indecent exposure, Cathcr-Pound-Neihardt computer lab. 1:06 p.m. — Mo-ped driving on sidewalk, Harper-Schramm-Smith courtyard. 1:29 p.m. — Prank phone calls, Bob Dcvancy Sports Center. 3:15 p.m. —Threatening letters, Harper Residence Hall. 3:37 p.m. — Money stolen from washers and dryers, Chi Phi Frater nity, 1245 N. 16th St., amount un known. 6:01 p.m. — Vehicle window bro ken, parking lot at 21st and Vine streets, $325.
