'Drink to drop'
in party games
By Mary Murphy
U. of Florida
Gainesville is party town, and on a
weekend night the fun is in full swing.
Laughing men and women sit in a row
in reclining chairs at a party in a stu-
dent's backyard. On a cue from two men
dressed as referees, they lean their
heads back and open their mouths. One
referee skillfully arcs a stream of te-
quila into their mouths, the other adds
margarita mix. When the drinkers hear
the whistle, they shake their heads
rapidly, then swallow.
The booze flows fast and furiously.
"Nickel Beer Night" and "Drink Till You
Drop" appear on every street corner.
This is a good-time town. But what most
students don't know is that a good time
Last fall, U. of Florida (UF) freshman
Robert Stevenson had too much to
drink, so some friends put him to bed.
The next morning a neighbor found him
dead of acute alcohol poisoning. He was
His death shocked many UF stu-
dents. One student said, "I knew drink-
ing could hurt you. I just didn't think
you could die."
A 1986 special report to Congress by
the National Clearinghouse for Alcohol
and Drug Information said ignorance of
alcohol claimed 218 lives in one year
from accidental alcohol overdose. The
common alcohol death occurs when vic-
tims strangle on their own vomit while

enced drinkers they are more likely to

Nutrasweet safe for healthy people
... It's safe for most healthy people to guzzle diet
soda sweetened with aspartame, also known as Nutras-
weet, U. of Minnesota researchers say. In a study of 108
people, scientists could find no significant differences
between those who consumed aspartame with meals for
24 weeks and those who took a placebo. They con-
cluded that aspartame does not cause headaches or
other problems in healthy people, but the sweetener is
hazardous for people born with the metabolism problem
called phenylketonuria. Those people can suffer brain
damage if they consume too much phenylalanine, one
of the amino acids in aspartame. Delores Lutz, The
Minnesota Daily, U. of Minnesota, Twin

tees at Franklin and Marshall College, Pa., have vot-
ed to "derecognize" the Greek system because it
promotes underage drinking. This reflects a nation-
wide trend, as many colleges have voted to derecog-
nize or reform their present Greek systems. The col-
leges are reacting to problems including discrimina-
tion, rapes and college liability for damage caused by
fraternities and sororities. u Jennifer Mezey,

Birth control ban ... Contradicting national
efforts to control birthrate and sexually transmitted
diseases, four member schools of the Texas State U.
system recently abolished the sale and/or distribution of
contraceptive devices from the schools' health clinics.
The ruling will affect Angelo State U., Sul Ross U.,
Southwest Texas State U. (STSU) and Sam Houston U.
John Noone, director of the STSU Health Clinic, said
although there was "considerable student involvement
and opposition," the Board of Regents quickly "handed
down their decision." Noone said that aside from the
distribution of contraceptives "things won't change that
much." He then confirmed, "We will comply with the
(board of regents') decision." Bill Morrison, The

Student stranded in Germany
Mohsen Zakeri, an Iranian-born graduate student
U. of Utah, has been stranded in Germany for more
nine months. Zakeri, a doctoral candidate in the hi
department, returned to Iran last summer to con
research for his dissertation. When he attempted Io
up his renewed student visa in Frankfurt, German
was told that questions about his application v
delay his return to the university. His visit to East E
was considered "adverse information" to reneo
visa. Shauna Bona, The Daily Utah Chr

become victims of alcohol overdose, said
Dr. John Adams, chairman of the
Psychiatry Department at the UF
Health Science Center.
After exams, UF dorm rooms are
cramped with rosy-cheeked freshmen
and seniors alike, competing for space
at kegs inside of closets. Young men and
women rapidly take turns trying to
bounce quarters off the Formica table
top and into their beer mugs. Those who
miss must drink.
"I played Pass-Out," said UF student
Alan Crouch. "It's roll the dice and see
how drunk you can get and how quickly.
I was a sophomore and everyone was my
age or younger," Crouch said.
What you drink, how'much and how
fast determines alcohol's effect on the
system. However, no amount of alcohol
is a "safe amount" Adams said, because
body weight, mood, drinking experi-
ence, type of food eaten and time be-
tween eating and drinking also deter-
mine its effect.
When a person drinks a large amount
of alcohol very quickly, he runs the risk
of alcohol overdose. Symptoms include:
an irregular, or below 60, pulse
