Dance, fashions raise AIDS awareness
By Darren Ivy
Thousands of people have run,
walked and ridden trikes to raise money
for AIDS charities, but not many have
dressed up for the cause.
This is exactly what volunteers are
doing Saturday at Q dance club, 226
S. Ninth St. Beginning at 9 p.m., vol
unteers will put on Hair Aid IV, a fash
ion show, music extravaganza and
clothes sale to raise money for the Pe
diatric AIDS Foundation.
“It’s about getting money and rais
ing awareness about AIDS,” said Steve
Kauble, owner of Pink Flamingo hair
salon, 4003 O St.
Pink Flamingo has organized all
three previous Hair Aids and has been
planning the upcoming event Aid for
six weeks. Kauble hopes to have a big
ger show and exceed the $1,200 that
was raised last year.
Kauble said Hair Aid has always
been a fashion show, but organizers
pick a different theme each year. This
year’s theme is that everyone is the
same underneath, and people with
AIDS are no different than anyone else.
He said the fashion show will not
be a runway show but more of an en
tertainment event. Clothes for the show
will be donated by local stores includ
ing Rhea, Ruby Begonia’s, Rialto Ex
tra, Hemp Fields, Ozone and Eupho
Jill Arnold, a Pink Flamingo styl
ist, has volunteered to choreograph the
show. This will be her first official job
as a choreographer, but she was in
volved with choreography while in the
ater at the University ofNebraska-Lin
Arnold said this year’s show would
be more provocative and erotic than
those in past years.
“It will be stuff that people are do
ing on the coasts, but that hasn’t
reached the Midwest yet,” Arnold said.
A group of 21 volunteers, made up
of Pink Flamingo clients and friends,
has been practicing for six weeks.
Stylists from Pink Flamingo will fix
the volunteer models’ hair.
“It gives our stylists a chance to
work together and be creative,” Kauble
The clothes worn for the show will
be sold, and proceeds will go to the
Pediatric AIDS Foundation. Tickets
are $4 and can be picked up at Pink

PYRAMID from page 1
on the calorie and fat content of foods
— not where they stand on the food
“It’s important to stress the whole
nutritional value of an item, not just its
calorie count,” Anthony said.
Pam Edwards, coordinator ofUNL
food service, said students often look
at the calorie and fat content of foods
before taking the food pyramid into
She attributed this to the media’s
portrayal of low calorie and fat intake
being essential to good health.
Edwards said food service will con
tinue to promote the food guide pyra
mid in the spring semester.
“We’re going to be at the cafete
rias with actual meals, information on
what parts of the pyramid they repre
sent and we’ll be there to answer any
questions,” Edwards said.
Edwards also said she was going
through the food service’s 3,000-plus
recipes to decrease the use of salt
“There are a lot of them, so it’s tak
ing a while,” Edwards said. “But we’ve
already begun to make changes.”
Gabel pleads not guilty to 1995 slaying
A man accused in the 1995 slaying
of a UNL student pleaded not guilty in
Lancaster County District Court
Gregory Gabel, 32, was charged
* with first-degree murder and use of a
weapon to commit a felony in the mur
j der of Martina McMenamin, an 18
- year-old sophomore at the University
McMenamin’s body was found bru
tally stabbed and beaten in her Lincoln
apartment on July 25,1995. Gabel was
arrested a year later after investigators
matched the DNA in his blood sample
to the DNA in a blond hair found
clutched in McMenamin’s hand.
The trial has been scheduled to start
Dec. 2, but County Attorney Gary
Lacey said he expected the trial to be
delayed until next summer.
The use of DNA evidence will con
tribute to some of those delays, Lacey
. Because the Nebraska Supreme
Court has not determined DNA to be
valid scientific evidence in court, pros
ecutors will ask for a special hearing
to prove that it is, Lacey said.
Lacey said he was confident the
Nebraska Supreme Court would rule
that DNA was admissible evidence if
the defense disputes DNA’s validity.
Die supreme court previously had
ruled against using DNA in trials, but
new developments have proven it to be
reliable, Lacey said.
“Since that case, there’s been more
acceptance for DNA in the scientific
community," he said.
