Another perennial favorite of the Bug Bash has
been the colorful roach races. In the roach racing
stadium, small American cockroaches demonstrate
their speed in a large, oval arena. A larger, slower
species, the Madagascar hissing cockroach, receives
cheers while pulling small toy carts along a track.
At the center of the roach racing area, former
cockroach champions look on.

points to the yellow infield bleachers where rows of
dead roaches are literally pinned to their seats,

FROM STAFF REPORTS
Lincoln police officers will
take to the streets tonight. But
instead of carrying guns and
night sticks, the officers will be
toting red plastic cups.
The officers are teaming up
with members of the NU
Directions coalition to pass out
the cups full of free soda at
Centennial Mall to students en
route to the bars.
Officers will also be serving
up buffalo wings to bar-goers
during the event, which runs
from 9:30 to 11p.m.
The purpose of the event is to
encourage students to use spac
ers - or breaks between drinks -
during their nights out at the
bars, said Tom Workman of NU
Twenty downtown bars are
also participating in the event.
Students with the red cups will be
able to fill up with free soda at any
of the bars throughout the night.
The cups will also contain
labels with tips on how to slow
alcohol absorption, such as tak
ing breaks in between drinks and
eating high-fat foods.
The project is a cooperative
effort between the Lincoln Police
Department, NU Directions and
downtown bar owners, Workman
