"We were very pleased," he said.
"We go(a lot of compliments saying it
was the best Parents' Weekend ever."
DaisyKline, vicepresidentofexter-
nal relations for SAC, agreed, "Parents
and students were really cooperative.
With the exception of the cold at the
game, everything was perfect."
Bullard added that more than 3,000
people attended the tailgate party Satur-
day, the Friday evening performance of
"42nd Street" sold out and the faculty
lectures were well-attended.
Bullard, an LSA senior, said the
only blemish on the weekend was they
fact that his parents could not make the
journey to Ann Arbor from their home
in Rockford, Ill.
"I was pretty depressed about that,"
he said.

Gore, Perot to argue if
NAFTA will cost jobs

WASHINGTON (AP) - Ross
Perot predicts a "giant sucking sound"
will put 5.9 million American jobs at
risk. Bill Clinton says free trade with
Mexico will create 200,000 new jobs
by 1995.
As the battle over the North Ameri-
can Free Trade Agreement nears its
climax, no issue is more contested than
whether jobs will be gained or lost.
It will be at the center of tomorrow
night's televised debate between Perot
and Vice President Al Gore.
The trouble, in the view of many
economists who have studied the agree-
ment, is that both sides are overstating
NAFTA's impact.
They view Perot'sclaimof5.9mil-
lion jobs "at risk" as absurd on its face.
The United States would have to
run a $100 billion trade deficit with
Mexico -equal to its total deficit with

theworldthisyear-toproducealoss
of more than 2 million jobs, they con-,
tend.
While the administration is much
more modest in its claim that 200,000:
new jobs will be created by 1995 from:
NAFTA, economists say that figure is
also being fudged.
They say the administration in its.
calculations is only totaling up the jobs
gained from increased U.S.,exports to
Mexico while not taking into account
any jobs lost from increased Mexican
imports into this country.
So what is the right number?
Most analysts say the operative an-
swer is "small."
Some say the United States would
gain jobs from the pact since the phase-
out of Mexican tariffs-21/2times as
high as U.S. tariffs -and the removal
ofotherbarriers would allow U.S. com-

mouths.
Five Japanese teams and one Swiss
team are ahead of the Maize and Blue.
And while the University's entry trav-
eled at an average speed of 41.1 mph,
Honda's entry traveled more than 70
mph at one point. Honda's Dream, a
multimillion dollar vehicle, leads the

rest of the pack by almost 75 miles.
Biel, the Swiss entry, was in second
place yesterday, but took first in last
year's race. Its solar cells alone cost
about $3 million.
But University team members said
they hope to offset their monetary
disadvantage with a superior, care-
fully planned strategy. Maize and Blue
started off at half-speed in an effort to
conserve energy for a strong finish.
In an effort to streamline their
vehicles, many teams removed logos
from their entries. Engineering senior
Eric Slinko said this could save cars
about 25 minutes per day.
More than 50 teams representing
12 countries began the race in Darwin
-- a Northern coastal town - at 8
a.m. yesterday. The course is set to
end 1,900 miles south in Adelaide.
The harsh weather conditions can
exceed 120 degrees, putting drivers
and vehicles in danger of overheating

and dehydration.
The fastest cars are expected to
arrive at the finish line on the fifth day
of the race. Other cars will trickle in
during the next five days. Cars race
between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Maize and Blue started the race in
the fifth position, a spot it earned by
placing fifth in the pre-race speed and
stability trials, held in Darwin Satur-
day.
University solar car team mem-
bers dined on spaghetti and taco salad
and prepared to head on to Daly Wa-
ters, an outback town of fewer than
100 residents. There, they will taste a
local delicacy - kangaroo burgers
- and take their last shower for the
duration of the race. Toilets are also
scarce. Team members have spades
to dig in to the reddish earth.
The students tamed in around 11
p.m., hoping to get a good rest before
rise-and-shine at 5 a.m.

SALARY

vice president, earns $134,000.
Other executive officers earn the
following salaries: Vice President for
Research HomerNeal, $180,000;Vice
President for Government Relations
Richard Kennedy, $130,138; and
Harrison, $128,985.
The wealth was spread around to
the Athletic Department. Football
coach Gary Moeller will garner
$130,000, a $10,000 raise.
Men's basketball coach Steve
Fisher will make $9,000 more than
last year, bringing in $115,000.

ALCOHOL

versity Health Services, agreed with the
Sklars.
"I think it's more important that
students be the ones organizing it be-
cause they are especially trying to at-
tract (other students) to the programs,"
she said.
The week willcommence today with
a Diag display, sponsored by the Uni-
versity Departmentof Public Safety, of
a crashed vehicle..
"It's a real shocking image placed
right in the path of students. They will
be forced to see it. It's one of those
images that will definitely stay with
people," Jason said.
Also today, Student Legal Services
will hold a workshop called "Alcohol
and the Law." Another workshop will
be held Wednesday.
Wednesday, the Panhellenic Asso-
ciation (Panhel) and the Interfraternity
Council (IFC); will co-sponsoraspeech
by former Pittsburgh Penguins hockey
player Mike Green. This is the second
year that Green will speak about his
recovery from alcohol abuse.
Tim Schuster, vicepresidentofpro-
gramming for IFC, said students last
year were so moved by Green's mes-
sage that they asked Panhel and IFC to
bring him back this year.
Schuster said Green's message is
unique in that he doesn't tell people not
to drink, but rather indicates how they
should drink. He said Green's motto
was, "I want you to sip it, taste it, enjoy
it, instead of slam it, pound it, chug it."

Thursday, Lonise Bias-the mother
ofLenBias,thenumber-oneNBA draft
pick who overdosed on cocaine -will
speak to students about alcohol and
drug abuse.
UAC's ViewpointLectures is spon-
soring the event, which organizers say
should provide a powerful and positive
message.
"The aims of Alcohol Awareness
Week this year are to provide apositive
message about being responsible about
substance abuse. Lonise Bias is a per-
fect person to convey that type of mes-
sage. She's positive," Randy said.
In addition, "mocktails" will alsobe
served in the residence halls during the
week.
"That's where they convert the din-
ing halls into a bar-type place with
festive decorations and non-alcoholic
drinks," Jason said.
Benz added, "We're trying to sug-
gest that they have a real bar set upw
insteadofapunch bowlatthe endofthe
food line."
Post-Alcohol Awareness Week
events areplannedas well, including an
alcohol-and-substance-free dance,
"Club Fabulous," sponsored by the
Lesbian-Gay Male Programs Office.
Organizers stressed that all of the
week's events are free in order to allow
more student participation.
Programcoordinators saidtheyhope
students will be able to attend at least
one of the events.
"I think it's not too farfetched to
assume that people will give thought to
some of the dangers of alcohol through
experiencing any one of these pro-
grams," Jason said.
