■ Students from nearly
100 schools come to UNL
for a forensics tournament.

' They’ve been a common sight on
campus the past several days.
They’ve been spotted tucked
away in discreet corners of the
Nebraska Union silently mouthing
speeches and gesturing broadly,
milling around Broyhill Fountain in
their black tailored suits and greet
ing friends with smiles and hugs.
The business suit-clad visitors
were delegates to the American
Forensics Association 2000 National
Individual Events Tournament,
which kicked off Saturday morning
and wrapped up Monday night after
three intense days of competition.
Ric Shafer, associate director of
forensics at the University of
Nebraska-Lincoln, said more than
500 students from 100 schools par
ticipated in the tournament.
And the competition at the tour
nament was tough.
“It’s a real honor to make it here,”
said Kendra Kingsbury, one of 15
UNL students to qualify for the tour
nament. “Evefyone here is good.”
Kingsbury was one of many
tournament delegates sitting nerv

Kingsbury, who participated in
impromptu speaking and persuasive
speaking, did a lot of waiting over
the weekend. She made it through
several rounds of competition, and
then through the quarterfinals and
semifinals. She said she hoped all
her waiting would pay off with an
invitation to finals.
“It’s kind of a waiting game,”

watching the events.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Hail,
heavy rain, high winds and tornadoes
tore through the South early Monday,
ripping off roofs, tossing trees into
power lines and apparently forcing a
small plane into the Gulf of Mexico.
The storms struck from Texas to
Georgia, with at least one storm-relat
ed death reported in Alabama.
Damage was widespread: Roofs and
power lines broke in or near dozens of
cities and towns.

areas,” said meteorologist Tim Destri
of the National Weather Service office
in Slidell, La.
In West Feliciana Parish north of
Baton Rouge, Fire Chief Tommy
Boyett said a tornado toppled trees
onto 25 to 30 houses.
In the apparent plane crash, the
pilot was the only person on board the
single-engine Bonanza BE35, which
disappeared from radar screens south
of Cameron in southwestern
Louisiana about 6 a.m. Monday, the
Coast Guard said. The Coast Guard

Student group raises money
for Nebraska AIDS Project
The Humanities in Medicine
student group was offering up a
tasty treat Monday in the Nebraska
Union, hoping to raise money and
awareness of AIDS.
The group raised $210 selling
root beer floats. The money will be
donated to the Nebraska AIDS
Project. The group also handed out
pamphlets, condoms and red rib
The idea came about when Laura
Martindale, a sophomore biology
major, started doing research for a
study abroad trip she will be taking
to Africa. While on the trip, she also
will do AIDS education.
Martindale realized that the
Nebraska AIDS Project is not pub
licly funded. So she suggested doing
a fund-raiser for the organization.
The group focuses on giving
pre-medicine students opportunities
to connect with people by doing
activities such as attending interna
tional festivals and going to gallery
Behrouz Zand, a sophomore
psychology major, said medical
schools look for well-rounded Stu
dents. Often, doctors lack a humani
tarian side, he said.
Alexis HaiflCy, the group’s pres
ident and a junior English major,
said students interested in getting
involved with the group can go to
