No sex for five years
for man who spread
*AIDS virus on purpose

fun to Union
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A
27-year-old man has been sentenced
to sexual abstinence for five years
and house arrest for six months for
knowingly spreading the AIDS
virus by having sex with a girl-
Alberto Gonzalez pleaded no
contest Monday to third-degree as-
sault, a felony, and two misde-
rieanor counts of recklessly endan-
Prosecutors dismissed nine other
charges, including a count of first-
degree assault that alleged Gonza-
lez used a dangerous weapon - the
AIDS virus - to intentionally in-
flict serious injury.
David Peters, the deputy district
* attorney who prosecuted Gonzalez,
said yesterday he would have been
able to show that Gonzalez knew he
carried the virus when he began his
relationship with Pederson.

friend who would
have been a key
witness for the

they were AIDS-
t infected in 1988.
GonzaleZ ally kept girl-
friend one and girlfriend two from
ever meeting," Peters said. "He con-
sciously kept the second one from
getting the information she would
have needed to protect herself."
Both women said they fear Gon-
zalez has infected others. They said
he frequented nightclubs and often
made advances toward other women,
even during his relationships with

him of causing injury recklessly and

Gonzalez was given a one-year
prison term. Instead of going to
prison, he will remain at home for
six months wearing an electronic
surveillance bracelet when he's not
working at his job as a cabinet
"I have every regard for the pub-
lic safety, my family's safety and
my safety," Gonzalez said. "I feel
it's time now to put everything be-
hind me and get on with my life."
Peters said Gonzalez will be a
free man in five years if he complies
with the conditions of his proba-
"It seems kind of ludicrous to
put him in jail ... when he has a fatal
illness," the prosecutor said.
Defense attorney Randall Vogt
said he agreed to the deal because it
was "extremely lenient," and be-
cause of Gonzalez's health.
"He had witnesses," Vogt said.
"He could undermine the credibil-
ity of the prosecution's witnesses.
But how it ultimately would all be
resolved would be a gamble, like all
trials are gambles."
Vogt voiced concern that police
were "regulating people's behavior
in the privacy of their bedroom."

Instead of students going to the
newsstand to find Mademoiselle,
Mademoiselle is going to find stu-
dents today from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at
the Ballroom in the Union.
"On Campus with Mademoi-
selle" has the goal of "exposing
students to the latest in fashion,
beauty and fitness in a fun and fes-
tive atmosphere," said Amy
Bermant, special events associate
from the magazine.
University Activities Center
(UAC) Special Events Chair Wendy
Shanker said UAC decided to spon-
sor the event because it is a "fun,
free activity" and because it allows
students to pick up a little real life
experience. She noted the event will
feature student photographers and
Activities for the day include
distributing literature and free
samples about products from spon-
sors. Some sponsors will be having
Each of the 11 corporate spon-
sors will have a booth, Bermant
said, and some will give away free
samples. Students can get free
pantyhose from L'eggs and free cat-
alogs from Spiegel's, for example.
Students - both men and women -
can be featured on a cover of the
magazine, by posing in front of a gi-
Company representatives will
also be on hand to answer questions.
Some sponsors will also be hold-
ing contests. At the Hanes Her Way
booth, students can enter a contest
to win a T-shirt. Hedonism II's con-
test's top prize is a trip for two to
Jamaica. To enter, students have to
finish a sentence telling how wicked

And at 4 p.m. .the models will

Students are not the only ones
that can have fun. "I love this job to
bring awareness in an atmosphere
that's fun," Bermant said.
The University is the third and
last stop for the "On Campus with
Mademoiselle" tour this year. The
other universities were the Univer-
sity of Miami, Florida and Southern
Methodist University in Texas.
This is the first time "On Cam-
pus with Mademoiselle" has come
to the University, Bermant said.

Federal govt: economy is growing, recession is over
WASHINGTON (AP) - The
U.S. economy started growing for
the first time in a year, posting a 2.4
percent advance from July through
September, the government said yes-
terday in a report hailed by the Bush
administration as proof that the re-
cession is over.
Private economists worried
about more recent signs of slug-
gishness, including another report
yesterday that showed consumer
confidence plummeting in October
as Americans grew more concerned
about the economy and job
The Commerce Department said
the gross national product, the
country's total output of goods and
services, climbed at the fastest pace
in 2 1/2-years following three con-
secutive quarterly declines as the
country struggled through the re-
Treasury Secretary Nicholas
Brady and Commerce Secretary
Robert Mosbacher said the increase
was encouraging. They pointed to
the strength in consumer spending,
residential construction and capital
spending in the summer.
"The recession is over," said
Mosbacher. Although he told re-
porters that the growth rate is "not
as fast as we would like to see," he
said he did not expect any type of
double-dip recession in which the
country lapses back into recession
after a period of weak growth.
Other economists, surveying the
GNP report, saw plenty of reason
for concern that one or two quarters
of growth will be followed by an-
other recession, something that has
occurred in five of the last eight
Analysts were particularly wor-
ried about a big drop in consumer
confidence, according to a report
from the C-1ference Board.
"The r .._ ° is loud and clear:
The natik '. isumers are appre-
hensive," ,aid 1 ,bian Linden, execu-
tive director for consumer research
at the Conference Board.
*.Corrections and Clarifications
A story in yesterday's Daily about the Graduate Employees Organiza-
tion should have reported that one of the union's grievances is with the
rUniversity's distinction between graders and teachers.
. A story in yesterday's Daily should have reported that Yusuf
Hawkins was shot.
Ulester Douglas did not identify himself as a survivor of sexual as-
sault for a story in Friday's Daily, just as a speaker on the subject.
