However, overexposure to UVB rays
can cause sunburn, premature aging,
and increase the risk of developing skin
cancer, Pierce said. He said he opposes
tanning parlors because they increase
the amount of UVB rays a person gets.
* Fogle said his tanning lamps are safe,
because they use the minimum amount
of UVB rays (.5 percent), the lowest
UVB rating on the market today.
"You don't have to burn to get a tan,"
said Fogle. "We try to minimize UVB
exposure. The timers on the booths are
usually set for three to 11 minutes. Just
because amachine has a 30-minute tim-
er doesn't mean that a customer can lie
in it for 30 minutes."
0 Tanning salons first appeared in
California in the early 1970s, Fogle
said, but they did not become popular
until later in the decade. There were
three tanning parlors in Gainesville
when Fogle first opened his in late 1986,
and now there are 16, despite operating
in the "Sunshine State."
"It's funny. Some of the most success-

that when you go to Florida, you have to
go back with a tan.
"A lot of tourists come in on Thursday
afternoon and have a flight on Friday

gard said. "The ultimate goal is for the
student to get a degree. Right now, re-
tention (among athletes) is higher than
it's ever been."
Maggard pointed out that the uni-
versity requires athletes to take a mini-
mum of 12 units while playing a sport,
unlike the general student body, which
*may petition for fewer units.
"(Basketball) players don't play more
than they study," said basketball head
coach Lou Campanelli. "We only have
them for a few hours a day.
"There is a carry-over from hoops to
academics. You're motivated and you
learn to use your time better."
During the season, football is gener-
ally the top priority of the players, said
safety Derek Taylor.
* "The programs (the university) has
are as good as they can get with the time
you have to study," he said. "During the
season, by 9 p.m. you're beat, and you
don't feel like studying."

She said lower-back pain associated
with the drug is probably due to muscle
tension caused by the amphetamine in
the compound. Likewise, headaches are
probably caused by clenching one's jaw.
A problem with the street trade in
Ecstasy is that one never really knows
what is in it. A study of 1,000 doses of
what was being sold as Ecstasy in San
Francisco's Golden Gate Park found
that none of the tablets contained the
