Sylvia Hacker, a University associate'
professor of Population Planning, told a group of'
sex education teachers, nurses and concerned
adults, as well as 40 students, last night, that a
new attitude towards sex must be achieved in
order to cope with sexually transmitted diseases.
Hacker's comments came in a featured lecture
for Safer Sex Day, entitled "Incorporating Safer
Sex Into Your Sexuality."
"The old pre-World War II norm of denial -
which states that sex is bad except in marriage
for the purpose of procreation - no longer
works," said Hacker. She suggested that the new
sex norm be one which relays that "sex is good,
but unwanted parenthood is bad."
talk urges thought
Hacker also pushed for changes in sex
education. "Less than 10 percent of sex education
classes don't deal with the questions that students
ask. We've got to stop the relentless pursuit of
the fallopian tubes," she said.
Although Hacker said the lecture went well,
she was disappointed with the lack of student
attendence. "But, people must elect to come," she
said. "They can't be coerced into coming."
Hacker attributed the lack of students to the
seriousness of the issue. "People are scared to
death about AIDS; if you have a scary message,
people go into the denial stage, she said.
University AIDS Education Coordinator Polly
Paulson agreed that more students didn't come
because they "don't perceive themselves at risk."
Paulson added that she was not disappointed by
the turnout which she considered to be a normal
According to Paulson; approximately 80
people attended the event. The program included
one workshop and three other events.
A "different cross section of people attend
each event," she said. "We present a series of
programs throughout the day, and we reach a
different segment of people at each event," she
said. "At one program last night, we handed out
between 600 and 800 free condoms."
Paulson added that most people attended the
lecture because "it's an issue that affects people,"
personally as well as the country as a whole.
People think about it, and (their participation)
helps process their feelings."

whether this education is appropriate
"If I were a college student, I'd
want to be told that the game had
changed, with respect to one-night
stands. And I don't think that has
been done at all," Osborn said. "And
the warnings have not been in the
right terms. Yes, students ought to
worry, because the thing we're
talking about is so awful that it's
worth some worry."
"But we can't make them so

education doesn't necessarily deserve
the blame, educators say.
"We have to accept that there will
always be some people who aren't
going to care, who are going to
continue to take risks," Paulson said.
Osborn added that even concerned
students "aren't listening as well as
they should. I think they may be
listening kind of curiously, but are
they listening hard enough to decide
at 10 p.m. after four beers that
they're not going to do something?"
University health educators stress
that students must continue to listen,
and listen hard, in order to avoid the
AIDS virus on campus.
"A couple of years from now
everybody is going to know about
the problem by the sheer fact that so
many will be affected," said Osborn.
"We don't want to wait."

WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen.
Joseph Biden said yesterday he is
assessing the damage to his troubled
1988 Democratic presidential
campaign, and a key aide said the
senator has discussed quitting the
race with members of his staff.
"I'm not going to make that
judgment now. I'm not going to
make any further comments on the
presidential race," the Delaware
senator told reporters following a
string of disclosures involving law
school plagiarism and his use of
other politicians' material in
One associate said Biden - who
travels to his home in Wilmington,
Del., practically every night -
intended to discuss his political
future with his family before
returning to Washington today.
During a break in the hearings on
the nomination of Robert Bork to
the Supreme Court, Biden told CBS
News and ABC News, "if the
damage done from this makes it
impossible for me to do these
hearings and makes it impossible for
me to conduct a campaign at the
same time, then I'm not going to
stay in for the exercise."
"Nobody would say that we're not
damaged. This is a time when any
campaign in its right mind would do
a reassessment," said one Biden aide,
Anne Lewis, Biden's New
Hampshire campaign director, was
asked if she was worried that when
she wakes up in the morning, there
will be a call from Biden saying he
is dropping out.
"I'm aware that it's definitely a
possibility," she said. She denied
rumors that Biden's New Hampshire
operation was already shutting down.
Biden's campaign was damaged
first by reports that he had lifted
campaign speech material from
British politician Neil Kinnock,
delivering a Kinnock anecdote as if it
were his own. Then it was revealed
that Biden had plagiarized material
for a law school paper in 1965.
His political situation deteriorated
further Monday, when it was
reported that he had exaggerated his
academic credentials and
accomplishments in a heated
exchange with a voter in New
Hampshire last spring.
