Spath said he was looking for

he encourages all students to enter the
lottery. As a band member, Spath
does not have to pay for a ticket or any

Travel and Transport, 411 S. 13th
St., is offering a three-night Orange
Bowl travel package to either Fort
Lauderdale, Fla., or Miami.
“The prices for the two packages
vary depending were an individual
stays,” Sue Bemt, director of opera
tions for Travel and Transport, said.
Prices range from $1,259 to $1,700,
based on double occupancy.
Those packages include round
trip airfare from Lincoln or Omaha,
hotel accommodations, ground trans
portation to the airport, hotel and sta
dium, tickets to a tailgate party, a
game souvenir, a game ticket and
access to a hospitality desk and tour
Bemt said trying to find a ticket at
a reasonable price may be difficult.

prices people get for tickets,” Bernt
said. “All of our packages include
tickets, so there is no worry about try
ing to find a ticket for the game.”
Omni Travel, 301 S. 68th Place,
also offered a group travel package to
the Orange Bowl, but sold out in less
than two weeks.
Sharly Riggert, an agent for Omni
Travel, said Omni Travel has a repeat
clientele for bowl trips, and this was
the main reason for the trip selling out
so fast.
“We advertised the package to our
clients and gave them first choice,”
Riggert said. “Then we advertised to
the public.”
The rate of the package was $985
per person, double occupancy.
The package included three
nights in Orlando, Fla., and two
nights in Miami round-trip airfare
from Lincoln, hotel accommoda
tions, ground transportation, a motor
coach tour of Orlando, a pre-game
pep rally, and a game ticket.
Riggert said some openings may
occur, but it is highly unlikely.
Jeff Cameron, a sophomore diver-j

his family made their own travef|

“We made our flight arrange-^

He said he plans to participate in
the Orange Bowl ticket lottery.
“Eighty dollars for an Orange
Bowl ticket is not that much,”
Cameron said. “I don’t know how
much I would actually pay for a tick

People who have Orange Bowl

U.S. will fund Geneva
physics accelerator
PHYSICS from page 1 ff
piece of the model, the Top Quark,
in March 1995. The particle was
* dixcoyered through experiments
| co*td«eted at what is-now the
| nation's best particle accelerator,
the Fermi National Accelerator
Laboratory outside of Chicago.
To build the new accelerator, the
Nebraska team members will join
about 1,500 other physicists from
around the globe in working on one
of two particle detectors in the new
accelerator called the Compact
Muon Solenoid. When complete,
the detectors will each measure 5
stories long and cost about $400
million to construct.
But UNL will contribute a much
smaller-sized piece, Snow said.
“The detectors that we’re build
ing are something we can handle in
me (jmysics; department, ne saia.
Of course, team members won’t
always stay in the department when
working on the detectors.
Snow and Claes now travel to
Geneva about three times each year,
and they plan to spend more time on
the site of the new accelerator as its
scheduled completion date
approaches. The UNL team should
install its detector in the accelerator
in 2003, he said.
By the same year, Snow said he
hopes UNL graduate students will
study in residence at the accelerator
site and work on their doctoral
degrees. One or more faculty mem
bers also may be stationed overseas.
“But first, we have to build the
detector,” he said.
The new accelerator isn’t the
first heavily funded new accelerator
Snow has worked on.
When he first came to UNL in
That guarantees
we will have funding

Greg Snow
UNL associate professor
September 1993, he planned to
gather a group of Nebraska physics
experts to work on a new particle
accelerator called the Supercollider
then being built in Waxahatchie,
Texas. The collider was to measure
50 miles in circumference and
become the world’s largest acceler
About one-third of the needed
tunnel was dug when Congress can
celed the project’s funding in 1993,
Snow said.
Uur whole lield had a pretty
substantial blow in that,” he said.
Because of Congress’ choice to
discontinue a domestic accelerator
project four years ago, Snow said,
physicists were uncertain whether
Congress would throw funding in
the way of U.S. physicists working
abroad in Geneva.
“It’s not a huge commitment of
money, but it’s many millions of
dollars,” he said, adding that the
money sends a message that the
United States again will join other
first-world nations in funding
ground-breaking new science
experiments - projects Snow calls
“big science.”
“That guarantees we will have
funding coming in our direction for
full participation in the big collabo
ration of physicists who will be
working in Geneva.”

The bus is a double-decker
and seats 44 people. It has 14
televisions and tables between) |

rented for weddings, birthday
parties and casino trips.
StarTran, Lincoln’s bus
service, has its fourth annual
holiday tour of lights this
This tour involves 20
buses, with about 600 people
on each of the five nights,
amounting to about 3,000 »
tourists on all the tours com
Held on Dec. 12, 19, 16
and 22, the tours will leave
from Gold’s Galleria, 11th and
O streets, at 7 each night. It
will be IVi to two hours long,
and costs X2 ner nersnn.
The holiday tour of lights
came about as a collaborative
idea from some of the
StarTran administrators, said1 '
Larry Worth, StarTran Transit
manager. •! I)
Buses will be following a
route that will include the
Colonial Hills neighborhood,
downtown and the area
around the Lincoln Country
Maps of the tour route will
be available at the StarTran
office starting Dec. 23, the
day after the last tour.
In the past few years, cars
have attempted to follow the
buses on the tour and caused
traffic jams. Because of this
problem, StarTran will have
police cars on the tour route
this year.
