Police are still looking for Gary
Lauck, a 46-year-old Lincoln man con

had ever been convicted in any court of
a crime punishable by more than one
year, Lancaster County Court docu

Lauck was arrested in March 1995
while attending a neo-Nazi rally in
Denmark. Danish authorities extradit

Doctorates for women,
minorities at new peak
CHICAGO (AP) - More women
and minorities are earning doctoral
degrees than ever before, according
to a survey of 382 universities
The survey, conducted by the
University of Chicago and released
Tuesday, found that about 41 percent
of all recipients of doctoral degrees
were women in the academic year
ending in 1997, a total of 17,322
women. Ten years earlier, women
accounted for one-third of all doctor
al degree recipients, and in 1967,
about 12 percent.
Among minorities, the numbers
nearly doubled between 1987 and
1997 - from 2,046 to 3,840, to about
9 percent of all doctorates granted.
“We’re the beneficiaries of the
women’s movement,” said Alexandra
Hrycak, 33, a sociology professor at
Reed College in Portland, Ore.
Some say the rise has to do with a
trickle-up effect: More women and
minorities getting undergraduate
degrees makes for more eventually
getting graduate degrees, and so on.
Some credit affirmative action
and other attempts to diversify.
Others say women and minorities
are slowly overcoming stereotypes,
such as the tendency to steer women
away from math and science. Still,
the study found that the number of
women in the physical sciences, such
as chemistry and engineering,

“In the past, we’ve purchased soy
milk for a vegan student,” she said.
“If a student has a question or con

Comment cards are a way to
gauge students’ opinions. Edwards
said the cards help the dining halls
UNL student Gopi Shah lived in
Neihardt Residence Center for three
years and said being'offered only one
vegetarian entree was a problem.
“I talked with Pam Edwards, and
I think they made a better effort,”
Shah, a senior actuarial science
major, said Edwards was receptive to
“If students talk to her, she takes
their opinions seriously,” Shah said.

“Personally, I think it sucked, but
they did a much better job than some
of the restaurants I’ve been to,” said
Rempe, who lived in Pound
Residence Hall last year.
She said the nutrition bytes cards,
which were used her freshman year,
were great because they clearly
marked the food. But her sophomore
year, the cards were missing.
“I’d asked what the meal was, and
one of the workers actually stirred it
around to look to see if there was any
meat,” Rempe said.
Aaron Ross, a UNL sophomore
environmental studies major, said

of vegetarian entrees.
“The vegetables they serve are
poor quality,” said Ross, who lived in
Neihardt. “The menus could also
vary the vegetarian dishes. It gets
kind of old. There’s a bunch of differ
ent things they could cook.”
Cheryl Card, food service man
ager at the Cather-Pound-Neihardt
residents halls, said UNL has done a
better job providing options for
vegan students in recent years.
Card said the dining halls are
more conscious of what students
“Ten years ago, we had some
vegan entrees, but not for every
meal,” Card said. “We didn’t have the
resources we have now. There’s so
much more variety we can offer.”
UNL allocates money to provide
vegan and vegetarian food to stu
dents, Card said.
Like UNL, universities across the
country are beginning to recognize
the needs of the vegetarian commu
nity. Jim Beeson, food services
director at Indiana University at
Bloomington, said IU has made a
commitment to vegans and vegetari
ans by providing those students with
specific dining halls that have chefs
specializing in vegetarian entrees.
“For years, vegetarians were told
to eat salad,” said Beeson, who is a
Five years ago, IU began placing
menu cards above each entree to
identify whether the food is vegan or
vegetarian, Beeson said.
* “A lot of students complain that
vegans get a lot of food, but if it
weren’t for the place cards, the stu
dents would nevef know if it wac
vegan or not,” he said.
To further accommodate vegetar
ians, Beeson said, IU makes vegan
meals with replicates, which replace
food vegans won’t eat.
For instance, if beef burritos are
on the menu, bean burritos will be
included as an alternative for stu
dents. Instead of using milk, IU uses
an egg replacement and soy milk.
The school also .offers an assortment
of fruit breads.
“We have at least 12 students
bring in vegetarian friends who
aren’t enrolled in school,” Beeson
said. “They come here to eat because
they have nowhere else to go.”
Bernie Fishlowitz-Roberts, a
senior at Haverford College outside
of Philadelphia, said he was con
cerned with the lack of vegan-ffiend
“I think every student should be
able to walk into a dining hall that
doesn’t violate deeply held beliefs,”

“The more people know about
the issues, the more aware and
accommodating they become,” he
said. “It’s hard to address if no one
knows there’s a problem.”
