Nursing school denies
record numbers
Despite the nursing shortage
across the country, the KU
School of Nursing continues to
turn away record numbers of
applicants. The school received
498 applications this year, but
had only 120 available spots.
A rapidly aging baby-boom
population is a main reason for
the nursing shortage.
Limited resources and a tight
state-funded budget are two rea-
sons for the high number of
rejections, Rita Clifford, associ-
ate dean of student affairs, said.
The school received only
seven more applications than
last year, but rising numbers
continue to worry the school’s
administration because it can-
not accommodate more stu-
dents.
“We never like to turn away
anyone who we think would be
a good nurse,” Clifford said. She
said she worried about the stu-
dents who didn’t make it in.
Clifford said school officials
would like to admit more appli-
cants, but the available spots are
restricted by a limited number of
faculty members. The school
prefers a one to 10 ratio for pro-
fessors and undergraduate stu-
dents. Some of the faculty mem-
bers on staff teach undergraduate
and graduate students and some
teach just graduate students.
Because applicants outnum-
ber vacancies, administrators
encourage applicants to apply to
several nursing schools in addi-
tion to the University of Kansas.
The high rejection rate hasn’t
discouraged Emma Rieper,
Overland Park sophomore, from
pursuing her application to the
school. She is also applying to
Baker University and St. Luke’s
Hospital of Kansas City, Mo.
The University was very com-
petitive and Baker and St. Luke’s
offered more one-on-one learn-
ing environments, she said.

Fraternity plans to appeal
A day after his fraternity was
expelled from campus, Matt
Moreno, president of Phi Kappa
Theta, said the punishment was
too severe.
The Interfraternity Council
charged Phi Kappa Theta, 1111
W. 11th St., with 24 charges for
recruitment and alcohol policy
violations. Lawrence police
cited nine people alcohol viola-
tions and confiscated more than
$500 in cash, signs that adver-
tised the party and 16 kegs.
“To tell you the truth, we’re
shocked,” Moreno, Wichita
sophomore, said. “Basically, we
feel it was unprecedented. It
almost seemed they were mak-
ing an example out of us. It feels
like we were victims of the cir-
cumstance.”
Moreno said he wanted to
appeal by Friday. The KU char-
ter of Phi Kappa Theta was the
fraternity’s oldest operating
chapter in the nation. It has
been at the University of Kansas
since 1910.
The chapter has already
taken actions to improve
accountability within the frater-
nity, Moreno said. They have
created a proactive outline for
members to follow.
Within the outline are steps
the fraternity members can take
to hold themselves accountable,
after the incident.
Moreno said the 35 members of
the fraternity would be required to
listen to a guest speaker talk about
the dangers and risks of alcohol
tomorrow night. Members will be
required to participate in a park
cleanup activity at South Park this
weekend as well.
This is not the first time a
proactive list has been sched-
uled for the fraternity.
Fraternity members abided by
a 10-point plan of corrective
measures in 1998, which fol-
lowed hazing allegations, Kevin
Lampe, Phi Kappa Theta
national secretary, said.
Phi Kappa Theta is the first
greek organization the IFC has
ever expelled.
Scott Shorten, IFC president,
said he could not compare a pre-
vious situation to the magnitude
of the Phi Kappa Theta incident.
The IFC judicial board
decides whether a chapter
should be expelled on a case by
case basis. Shorten said the Phi
Kappa Theta decision was made
because of the chapter’s disre-
gard for IFC rules.
“I would say their lack of
effort to conform to our laws
and bylaws endangered those of
their fraternity and the guests of
their fraternity,” Shorten said.
Though the IFC no longer rec-
ognizes Phi Kappa Theta as an
active fraternity, Moreno said his
fraternity would plan to remain
active as a greek organization.

Sign prompts tussle
The rivalry between
University of Kansas and
University of Missouri fans
escalated on Sunday when four
KU fans got into an altercation
with an MU fan over a sign.
Chris Kaufman, Denver sen-
ior, filed a complaint against
University of Missouri police
chief Jack Watring yesterday.
Included in Kaufman’s com-
plaint was an allegation that
Watring assaulted him after he
refused to relinquish a sign.
The 3-foot-by-6-foot sign
said that Mizzou Arena was the
Allen Fieldhouse of the East.
The University of Missouri
police department referred calls
yesterday to the MU news
bureau. Christian Basi, assis-
tant director of the MU news
bureau, said that the police
department was investigating
the allegations and that Watring
would not be suspended during
the investigation.
According to Kaufman’s
description of events, an usher
gave him and three others per-
mission to hang the sign over a
railing.
Kaufman and his friends
were sitting two rows away
from the railing, according to
the complaint. Christian Green,
2003 KU alumnus; Richard
Littrell, Lee’s Summit, Mo.,
junior and Andrew Wymore,
2004 alumnus, were with
Kaufman.
Fifteen minutes after the stu-
dents hung the sign, a man sat
down in his seat behind it,
Kaufman wrote in the com-
plaint. Another man on the
walkway below him called up
and asked the man sitting
behind the railing if he was
going to allow the to sign hang
in front of him.
After learning what the sign
read, the man attempted to take it
down, according to the complaint.
The man and Kaufman had a
disagreement about the sign,
according to Kaufman’s com-
plaint. When Kaufman went to
grab the sign from the man, he
grabbed Kaufman by the collar
of his shirt and drew him
towards him, Kaufman wrote.
It was then that the man iden-
tified himself as the University of
Missouri chief of police,
Kaufman wrote in the complaint.
Littrell wrote in a separate
complaint that he intervened
and took the sign to roll it up as
a uniformed officer approached
the group.
Maj. Doug Schwandt escorted
the group to the concourse,
according to Littrell’s complaint.
The four KU fans asked
questions of the police,
according to Kaufman’s com-
plaint, but were responded to
vaguely and with threats of
being arrested or thrown out
of the game.

City commission to
amend smoking ban
Bar and restaurant patrons
may soon be allowed to take
their beer with them when they
step outside to light up a ciga-
rette.
The city commission last
night directed staff to draft two
ordinances that would amend
the city’s smoking ban. One
draft would outline changes to
the city’s policy on sidewalk
dining licenses. The other
would make an exception to the
smoking ban for a ventilated
smoking room at Hallmark
Cards, 101 McDonald Drive.
Business owners in down-
town Lawrence currently have
to make 70 percent of their rev-
enue from food sales to get a
license that allows customers to
eat and drink on the city’s side-
walk.
The proposed amendment
would allow businesses, which
were established before the
smoking ordinance took effect,
to be exempt from the food sales
requirement.
More than 30 businesses in
downtown cannot currently
obtain the license because they
do not meet the 70 percent
requirement.
Jerry Neverve, owner of Red
Lyon Tavern, 944 Massachusetts
St., cannot allow customers to
smoke with their drinks in front
of his business because not
enough of his revenue comes
from food sales. If the city
amends the requirement
Neverve said he would apply for
a license.
Rusty Nelsen, Omaha, Neb.,
senior, said he favored the
amendment. Nelsen, an employ-
ee at Quinton’s Bar and Deli, 615
Massachusetts St., said the
requirement was not fair to older
bars that do not make as much
money from food sales.

Building enters renaissance
A 35-year-old kiln sits in a first
floor room in the Art and Design
building.
Its roof is crumbling and the han-
dle comes off the lid when a user
opens it.
In an adjacent room a new kiln,
worth about $1,400, waits to take its
place.
This is just one of dozens of
improvements to the Art and Design
Building since winter break.
Funding for these improvements
came from a combination of a
$500,000 Hallmark grant, student dif-
ferential tuition and private sector
donations, Greg Thomas, design
chairman, said.
So far the improvements have cost
about $125,000, Thomas said.
Improvements are being made in
order to keep up with similar univer-
sities, Elissa Armstrong, associate pro-
fessor of ceramics, said.
“These facilities are something
other schools will be envious of,”
Matt Ostmeyer, Stilwell senior, said.
“Students get a lot more motivated if
they have good facilities.”
Lab rats
During winter break two computer
labs with 18 Apple computers were
added.
These computers are used for
audiovisual editing and designing.
The network speed was also increased
by 10 times.
“The kids came back, we opened
the door and then there were all of
these new G5s,” Thomas said.
Working in the labs is about 90 per-
cent better then it used to be, Kyle
Heinen, Seneca senior, said.
“Last year you didn’t know what
computers had what programs,”
Heinen said. “It was a hassle to jump
from computer to computer to use all
of the programs.”
Heinen wouldn’t have bought his
own computer during his sophomore
year if the current labs existed.
The new labs cost about $75,000 to
install, Patrick Emerson, area coordi-
nator, said.
A third lab will be built this sum-
mer on the third floor of the art and
design building similar to the ones
existing now. These labs are available
to all students.
Not everything coming in is new.
This summer, a clamshell press from
the ’40s is expected to be installed
into KU Printing Services, which
was scaled back earlier this semes-
ter.
The press will be used by students
who are designing typefaces.
Two into one
In the fall, industrial design stu-
dents will have a new prototyping
room and studio space.
This room is expected to have five
movable PC workstations and mov-
able tables that reconfigure quickly.
The room was created by removing
a wall to make one large room.
“This isn’t a new way to work in the
professional world,” Lance Rake, area
coordinator of industrial design, said.
“This is, maybe, a new way for our
students to work.”
The current industrial prototyping
room has fixed stationary tables.
“This is the way we used to work,”
Thomas said. “Over there is the way
we should be working.”
The room will give students taking
industrial design 1, 2 and 3 an on-
campus studio environment, some-
thing only level 4 students had.
In previous semesters students who
took their work home had to worry
about breaking it during transporta-
tion, Ostmeyer, an industrial design
student, said.
“Another good thing is that stu-
dents from all levels will be there feed-
ing off of each other,” he said.
Precious gems
Metalsmithing and jewelry will be
adding a gemology class next fall
because of a new computer that has
the capability to take 2-D CAD draw-
ings and render them in 3-D.
Gemology is the study of the make-up
of natural gemstone formation.
This will help metalsmithing and
jewelry students to bolster their
portfolios, said Jon Havener, area
coordinator for metalsmithing and
jewelry.
“We’re not going to make a certified
gemologist here,” Havener said. “But
we want them to understand the proc-
ess.”
Sitting on a shelf in a metal jewelry
room there are two anodizing
machines, which aid in the process of
color-coating metal.
The one on left is small and new.
The other is large, almost 50 years old
and starting to rust out.
The new machine makes better,
more consistent coatings, Lin
Stanionis, professor of jewelry design
and metalsmithing, said.
One aspect in particular sets the
old machine apart from the new one.
It no longer works.

Student program aids immigrants
For Raymundo Rojas, going into law
wasn’t about the money. The third-year
law student from El Paso, Texas, devotes
his free time to a cause that is close to his
heart — immigration.
Although some of his family were in
parts of North America even before it
was the United States, Rojas has shaped
his life around helping those just arriving
here.
“I was brought up in a Christian fami-
ly and the second greatest command-
ment was to love your neighbor as your-
self,” he said. “It’s been with me for all
my life — you help people and you need
to love your neighbor.”
He and other students from the
University of Kansas School of Law have
been taking what they have learned in
the classroom and in life and using it to
help educate the migrant community in
Lawrence.
Together the group formed Apoyo
Trabajador de Lawrence, or Migrant
Workers Solidarity of Lawrence.
Rojas said the group serves as an out-
reach program trying to inform immi-
grants in Lawrence about their rights,
even if they are undocumented.
It tries to let people know that they are
not alone and shouldn’t feel isolated
because of their status.
The group goes to places where immi-
grant workers gather and talks to them
about rights and services available to
them.
The group focuses on helping educate
immigrants about exploitation in the
workplace.
“People get taken advantage of
because they are afraid of being deport-
ed,” said Leo Prieto, a second-year law
student from Garden City who is a mem-
ber of the Migrant Workers Solidarity of
Lawrence. “They are willing to stick with
a job even if they are being exploited
because they need to work for their fam-
ilies.”
Tomorrow night at 7, the Migrant
Workers Solidarity of Lawrence and the
Coordinator of Immigrant Advocacy of
Coalition of Kansas have invited three
immigration lawyers from the state to
hold an open forum at St. John the
Evangelist Catholic Church, 1229
Vermont St. The forum will offer
Lawrence residents free legal assis-
tance.
Teodoro Garcia of Garcia, Solorio
L.L.C. will focus on deportation and
removal laws. Alejandro Solorio of the
same firm, will speak to people about
workplace rights. Marin de Stavanov will
speak about family immigration laws.
Marin de Stavanov of Marin de
Stavanov L.L.C. is a lawyer who special-
izes in family immigration law. Her firm
is located in Lawrence.
She said she was glad that University
law students were doing this.
“Its so important because that’s what
Lawrence is about — you have people
from all over the world walking the
street,” she said. “It’s an international
community and to protect the people
coming here, you need to educate the
community. That’s the only way you can
protect them.”
The organization hopes to permanent-
ly set up a center in Lawrence where
people will be able to go and get infor-
mation about available services. They
also hope to have classes in the school
that will deal with immigration issues.
By putting together the program Rojas
wants people to be more comfortable
with their rights.
Rojas said he met a man a few months
ago who was excited about the program
and offered to do Rojas a favor. Rojas’
response was simple.
“The biggest favor you can do for me is
to pass on the favor.”

Board refuses to cancel
hearings on evolution
TOPEKA — The State Board of
Education refused yesterday to cancel
public hearings scheduled to hear testi-
mony about evolution, even though
some members complained those hear-
ings will be a “charade” to justify
rewriting state science standards.
Conservatives hold six of 10 board
seats, and they voted as a block to reject
the proposal to cancel the hearings.
The four other board members con-
sider the hearings to be rigged and
believe the majority already plans to
rewrite the science standards to expose
students to more criticism of evolution
— a goal of proponents of creationism
and intelligent design.
“You have the six votes — just use
them and move forward,” dissenting
board member Sue Gamble, a Shawnee
Republican, told the conservatives. “I
resent you using my tax dollars for this
charade.”
The hearings, before a subcommittee
of three board members, are tentatively
scheduled for May 5 to 7 and 12 to 14.
The subcommittee plans to review evi-
dence supporting and opposing evolu-
tion, with only scientists testifying.

NEW YORK — Six months after
undergoing heart bypass surgery, for-
mer President Clinton will return to the
hospital this week to have a rare
buildup of fluid and scar tissue removed
from his chest.
“I feel fine,” Clinton said yesterday in
Washington.
Doctors at New York-Presbyterian
Hospital/Columbia University Medical
Center said the surgery was low-risk.
During the procedure, known as a
decortication, doctors will remove scar tis-
sue that is pressing down on his left lung.
The former president said doctors
discovered the condition during a recent
X-ray, and he called the surgery a “rou-
tine sort of deal.”

Ash spews after quake
at Mount St. Helens
MOUNT ST. HELENS, Wash. — Mount
St. Helens released a plume of ash yester-
day, its most significant emission in
months but one that seismologists did
not believe heralded any major eruption.
The ash explosion happened about
an hour after a 2.0-magnitude quake
rumbled on the east side of the moun-
tain, said Bill Steele, coordinator of the
Pacific Northwest Seismograph
Network. He did not believe the explo-
sion had increased the risk of a signifi-
cant eruption.

Mexican culture hits the big screen
The Mexican Cinema Club’s
purpose is simple — to show-
case cultural expression from
Mexico in the form of film.
Antonio Moreno, Chiapas,
Mexico, graduate teaching assis-
tant, started the club more than
two years ago.
“Usually, the people who
attend are students in the
Spanish department, Spanish
professors, as well as people
who are interested in Mexican
culture,” Moreno said.
Club members watch films in
Spanish subtitles from Moreno’s
personal collection, which he
has built from his trips back to
Mexico.
Recently, members have
watched “Japon,” “Nicotina”
and “De la Calle.”
“The films discuss the aspects
of the ‘new Mexico,’ including
the violence, drugs, changes in
family life and the ecological
problems Mexico deals with,”
Moreno said.
Isabel Guilleumas, Salmanca,
Spain, GTA, said she attended
the club’s meetings because it
was a way to see films that were
not normally shown in the
United States.
She said she liked the atten-
tion the club brought to Mexico
and has attended film showings
since the club started.
“The movies really show the
current Mexican culture,
which I like to know about,”
she said.
Moreno said he would try to
bring back more comedies from
his next trip.
He said most of the films the
club showed were dramas and
comedies would be a welcome
change and an attraction to
more students.
“I think students will relate
to the comedies better,” he
said.
About 20 to 30 people come
to the meetings each week. The
club is open to everyone and
normally meets at 4:30 p.m.
Tuesdays at room 4057 in
Wescoe Hall.

At that point, Wymore told
Schwandt that the sign was their
property. He was then escorted
out of the arena, Wymore said in
an interview.
While outside with Schwandt,
Wymore said he was told that he
was ejected for trespassing
because his ticket had been
revoked. Wymore said
Schwandt failed to offer any fur-
ther explanation.
“After thinking about my next
move, I told him that since my
ticket was was defective I was
going to buy a new one or at
least get a refund,” Wymore said.
He said he didn’t get a foot
into the door of the box office
before he was arrested.
Kaufman and Green were
later told by Schwandt that
Wymore was charged with crim-
inal trespassing and was being
held at Boone County Jail,
according to Kaufman’s com-
plaint.
They returned to the arena to
watch the first half of the game
before going to bail their friend out
of jail, Kaufman’s complaint said.
A witness of the altercation
also filed a complaint.
Barry Lewis, father of a
University of Missouri student,
said he was afraid Kaufman was
going to fall over a nearby railing
during the altercation. That was
when he got up to intervene.
When he got there, the head
of security had already arrived.
Lewis said that rather than
mediate the situation, the police
went after the students with
threats of being arrested and
kicked out.
“I thought they were going to
take care of the old man because
he was creating the problem, but
they never asked any questions,”
Lewis said.
Lewis said the KU students
were respectful, never spoke out
of turn and complied with
Watring’s wishes for them to
take the sign down.
“My initial complaint was
with the policeman who never
attempted to get all of the infor-
mation,” Lewis said. “Until I
found out it was the police chief
who assaulted them.”
Lewis is in the process of writ-
ing a letter to the vice chancellor
to be sent today.
“As a tuition-paying parent, I
wanted to let them know I was-
n’t at all pleased and I had lost
all confidence in the campus
police department,” he said.

on its use, location and size, so
playing the same songs in dif-
ferent locations can give the
music new life, Walter said.
She said she hoped to occa-
sionally return to the University
after she graduates, climb the
stairs to the top of the
Campanile and play the caril-
lon here in the future
Te mpl e ,
on the other
hand, said
she wanted
to make the
carillon her
career. She
plans to
study at the
Netherlands
School of
Playing in
Amersfoort,
Ho l l a n d ,
which is not far from Amsterdam.
Temple also plans to spend her
next year studying overseas. In a
few years, there will be openings
for carillon positions all over the
world, and Temple’s goal is to
hold one of them.
Having a carillon on the KU
campus is unique because there
aren’t more than 200 carillons
in the world. Morrissey and
Temple both agreed that the
uniqueness of the instrument
inspired their desire to play it.
“I like how great the sound
is,” Morrissey said. “The quality
is not something you have with
any other instrument.”
Many people also don’t
know that there is an actual
instrument inside of the cam-
panile, and most students
believe the bells and music are
all mechanical, Morrissey said.
She also said that when she
and Temple have talked about
playing the carillon, students
have been intrigued. They’ve
asked questions with much
interest and are usually sur-
prised that there’s not more
publicity on it, she said.
“The carillon is not only impor-
tant because it’s a memorial,”
Morrissey said, “but because it’s
part of our school’s history and a
part of our college experience. It
sounds every 15 minutes.”

Danielle Rose, Olathe sopho-
more, didn’t let the shortage dis-
courage her hopes of becoming
a nurse, either. She was recently
accepted into the KU School of
Nursing and will begin in the fall
semester. She didn’t apply to
other universities because she
didn’t meet some of their pre-
requisite requirements.
“As much as the shortage
sucks now, in the long run
you’re guaranteed a job as soon
as your graduate,” she said.
The Kansas State Nursing
Association wants the the
Kansas Board of Regents to pro-
vide more money for nursing
schools.
Public universities with nurs-
ing schools that are funded by
the Regents are the University,
Emporia State University,
Pittsburg State University,
Wichita State University and
Fort Hays State University. The
Washburn University nursing
school is private, so it is only
partly funded. Kansas State
University does not have a nurs-
ing school.
The Kansas House of
Representatives recommended
program expansions in all
schools earlier this week.
Expansions would increase
enrollment capacity by 250 for
each fully-funded school.
The recommendation will be
prepared in the House
Appropriation Committee
Report on higher education,
Terri Roberts, executive director
of the Kansas State Nurses
Association, said.
For three consecutive years,
the nursing association has pre-
sented work force shortages to
the Legislature, Roberts said.
Roberts urged the Regents to
use a “dedicated funding stream”
when allocating money to univer-
sity programs. She recommended
that the Regents provide more
money to programs based on
need, rather than equally distrib-
uting the funds among all pro-
grams.
“Someone at some time has to
say, ‘Hey, you know what? We
need to put more money into
nursing,’” Roberts said.
But while the House debates
expanding the nursing programs
in higher education, the KU
School of Nursing is left with a
funding shortage. Clifford said
the school has given thought to
differential tuition, but has yet to
implement this idea.

If the commission approves
an amendment to allow an
employee smoking break room
at Hallmark, Rick Renfro said
he hoped his bar would also be
allowed to create such a room
for customers.
Renfro said his business,
Johnny’s Tavern, 401 2nd St., had
three separate rooms with differ-
ent ventilation systems. He said
air was exhausted outside the
rooms by negative air pressure,
the same way as the employee
break room at Hallmark.
“Customers should be allowed
to go into a room and smoke if
it’s ventilated,” Renfro said.
Nelsen, a non-smoker, said
having a smoking room in a bar
would bother him. But a smok-
ing room could attract more
people to bars and improve
business, he said.
Renfro said most employees
at his business wouldn’t care
about a smoking room.
“The employees they’re trying
to protect are all smokers,”
Renfro said.
Business owners said that
even though the commission did
not approve the amendments
right away they were satisfied
that things were progressing.
“This is a step forward,”
Neverve said. “There are always
concerns with the ordinance
but we’re trying to make efforts
to comply and still maintain
business.”

I'm in Columbia and I'm tapping my heels together, say-

home!

I just watched Quin Snyder drop it like it's hot.

Giddens, you just made a room full of girls scream. That
hasn't happened in a while.

Giddens, welcome back to Earth.

I hate Missouri. Real classy, rushing

Noooooooooooooooooooooooo!

My roommate just said, "It feels so
good to be back in the Birks," refer-
ring to his Birkenstocks. How lame.

We are going to Target to buy coats for Acapulco.

Does the Free For All have caller ID? Because that
would be bad.

I used to be able to say that I've never truly hated any-
thing, but now I've gotta say that I absolutely hate
Missouri. I hate them. With a passion.

▼ SACK’S PERSPECTIVE
There are noble reasons that are given for the
United States being in Iraq, but a ridiculous
amount of imagination is required to actually
believe them. The Bush Administration has
knowingly based the war on three false pillars:
one, that Iraq has weapons of mass destruction;
two, that they are linked with terrorists groups
such as Al Qaeda; and three, that we are bringing
its people freedom and democracy.
Where are the weapons of mass destruction?
United Nations weapon inspectors found no credi-
ble evidence of them. Defectors testified that the
remaining arsenal was effectively destroyed in the
1990s. The chemical weapons that Iraq produced
before the first Gulf War had a shelf life of less than
three years. Documents proving that Iraq had
attempted to purchase uranium were nothing but
forgeries. Mobile chemical labs were the most cred-
ible threat of weapons of mass destruction Colin
Powell could present — a threat so intangible that
no one has actually seen one, forcing Powell to use
computer simulations instead of photographic evi-
dence. Perhaps the most telling indication that Iraq
had no weapons of mass destruction is that after a
year of occupation, we have found nothing.
How about the terrorists? Saddam Hussein was
a megalomaniacal dictator, and by his very nature,
he grubbed for any and all power. He did not toler-
ate grass roots movements of any kind, religious or
secular, because any such movement constituted a
threat to him. He expressed his contempt for
Osama Bin Laden, and although Hussein was
pleased by the Sept. 11 attacks, not a single hijack-
er was from Iraq. No, instead of combating terror-
ism, the Iraqi invasion has acted as a magnet for ter-
rorists: It is the latest poster child for martyrdom.
And how does one instill democracy, where his-
torically, none has ever existed? It can’t come from
the end of a gun. The United States does not want a
democracy in Iraq. Any democracy in that country
would certainly not be pro-American or pro-Israeli.
What if the good people of Iraq democratically
decide that the United States may not purchase its
oil? No, a democracy in Iraq simply wouldn’t do.
The best explanation for the war in Iraq is that
we want to install a free market economy; there
are fortunes to be made, both in rebuilding and in
the oil industry. Now, the flow of oil and curren-
cy can be virtually assured by the establishment of
a permanent military base there.
History supports this explanation. In 1953, the
CIA orchestrated a coup that overthrew the demo-
cratically elected prime minister of Iran,
Mohammad Mossadegh. He had no weapons of
mass destruction. He detested autocracy and loved
freedom. He tolerated no ties with terrorist groups.
But Mossadegh would not let the oil flow, so we
overthrew him, installing in his place the dictator
Reza Shah, a man who brutalized his own people
and allowed radical Islam to flourish. Our intense
meddling with Iran’s politics polarized whole sec-
tions of the population, so those radical Islamic
groups became more and more anti-American. Who
could blame them? We put their George
Washington under house arrest, toppled their
democracy and ended their civil liberties, so we
could exploit their natural resources. Why wouldn’t
they hate us? It is not unreasonable to draw con-
nections linking the CIA’s exploits of the 1950s to
the terrorist retaliations of 2001. This begs the ques-
tion: What punishment awaits our country in anoth-
er 50 years for our current aggression in Iraq?
I can’t pretend anymore, for behind all of Mr.
Bush’s impossible reasons for going to war, he is
nothing more than a terrorist in his own right.
Iraqi civilians and our own military personnel are
being killed en masse because of his empty fabri-
cations. Shameful, Mr. Bush. Shameful.

Have you ever lied to anyone about doing
poorly on a test? Or decided not to tell someone
you never got the job you applied for? Was it
because you did not want them to know you
failed?
Second only to death, fear of failure is one of
the most common phobias people in America
have. It is not uncommon for people to take dras-
tic measures such as suicide or create elaborate
lies just to avoid the stigma of being labeled a fail-
ure.
American culture is one of hyper-competitive-
ness that has no tolerance for failure. The belief
is that the pursuit of the American dream, the
idea that through hard work and determination,
one can achieve prosperity, is the way to live life,
and it will give meaning and dignity to your exis-
tence.
However, when people work hard and still fail,
should they loathe themselves for not living up to
the goal or for buying into our society’s stan-
dards?
I believe that as fallible and unique creatures,
people should accept that failure is imminent and
have the courage to continue living a life defined
by what they feel is important and not based on
society’s standards.
A book entitled “Born Loser: A History of
Failure in America,” by Scott Sandage discusses
how the concept of failure has taken on a
greater personal significance since the mid-19th
century.
In pre-Civil War times, failure was defined as
“breaking in business” and was a term solely used
in a business sense. During the Golden Age when
capitalism came of age, “entrepreneurship
became the primary model of American identity,”
Sandage writes.
At the same time Sandage also writes, “failure
has become the most damning incarnation of the
connection between achievement and personal
identity.” Therefore, people more readily associate
achievements in life to a life well lived, as
opposed to successful development of moral
character. So when “honest working” people fail,
and they do all the time, what does that say for a
system that contradicts itself? As Sandage writes,
“The American who fails is a prophet without
honor in his own country.”
Failing in a culture that worships success takes
a toll on anyone. For college students, this applies
even more. While education may open the door
to a better career, it also fosters higher expecta-
tions that college graduates may not reach.
Compounded with the added stress of starting
serious endeavors without their parent’s support
for the first time, such as getting a job, finding a
significant other or a place to live, can be crip-
pling.
However, it does not have to be that way.
According to an article in the current issue of
Psychology Today entitled “Happy Hour,” the
gap between ambition and achievement, a
major source of stress and unhappiness for
young people, narrows with age. As people get
older, they either achieve their goals or replace
them with more reachable aims. For right now,
students need to be realistic with themselves by
asking what they are afraid of and what would
be the worst thing that could happen.
Human beings are bound to fail and there is
nothing wrong or horrible about this. It’s normal.
People should not buy into the shallow system of
capitalistic endeavors, but instead, be honest
with themselves and pursue the life they wish to
live, filled with errors and all. For if there is one
thing we cannot fail at, it is having the courage to
be content with who we are.

only describe as a “ball player.” If anyone
was thinking it might be a basketball play-
er, it’s worth mentioning that KCTV 5 for-
got, or decided not to mention, that it was
a Kansas baseball player — Scott Sharpe.
Sharpe was arrested for a fight at a party.
The actual newscast was worse. It
described Sharpe as Kansas’ best player
“statistically.” Sharpe’s
earned run average is a
perfect zero, but he has
only pitched 10 innings
of garbage time, so it’s far
from accurate to describe
Sharpe as Kansas’ best
player.
The “news” segment
went on to say that Kansas lost that after-
noon’s game to Southwest Missouri State
— a team that was in the College World
Series just two years ago and a perennial
baseball powerhouse — without Sharpe. It
failed to consider that Sharpe doesn’t log
meaningful time for the Jayhawks, so he
was hardly missed in a game where they
were heavy underdogs. But again, why let
the truth get in front of a good story?
In recent years, it has become obvious
that the media has been reporting news
with an apparent agenda. Many say that
Fox news has a conservative slant, others
argue that CNN has a liberal bias that
puts more of a slant on the news they
report. It seems that people must consid-
er this bias when they watch or read the
news. Bernard Goldberg writes in his
book, “Bias,” about how the sensational-
ist media began as soon as the news mag-
azines made a profit. As soon as the net-
work executives realized the potential of
news for profit, the bias began to seep in.
But why does the public accept news
that may not be completely true? Maybe
because of the manner in which our soci-
ety entertains itself. All of the things peo-
ple find entertaining are reflected in the
news. We enjoy watching news about
scandal, death and crooked politics.
People take comfort in the fact that other
people are worse off than they are.
Perhaps the fault of slanted news rests
on the public, not with the news networks.
We are the ones that give them the ratings
that allow their advertising to produce a
profit. This is not information we are buy-
ing; it is infotainment. The networks
advertise in a manner similar to movie
trailers — painting pictures
of violent crimes, sex and
scandals — just before
breaks to keep viewers
watching. These networks
don’t pick what goes into
the news, the public does.
If the public decides that
an issue is not newswor-
thy, they stop getting their news from that
source. Therefore, we as a public need to
change what we want to see from news
sources. This is the only way to rid the
news of the biased slants.
A second solution is simpler: Americans
should inform themselves. Resources to get
information about the world are readily
available. We, as citizens, need to take the
responsibility upon ourselves to stay
informed. This may mean getting our news
from a source that slants in a direction that
we are not used to. This helps viewers and
readers look at stories from as many sides
as possible. It is unfortunate that the pub-
lic must subject itself to conflicting biases
to understand a story. But it must be done
for Americans to get the information nec-
essary to form an opinion on the many
issues. After all, viewers are the ones that
need to remain objective, not the news
sources.

KULTURE
THE UNIVERSITY DAILY KANSAN WEDNESDAY, MARCH 9, 2005 6A
Erin Morrissey gracefully pounds her
fists on the large keys of one of the most
outstanding musical instruments on cam-
pus. While no one can actually see the
Portland, Ore., senior playing the instru-
ment, the entire campus can hear her per-
fectly striking each note. Morrissey is play-
ing the KU Alma Mater on the carillon, the
53-belled instrument housed at the top of
the Campanile.
“I like it when nobody knows it’s me
playing,” Morrissey said.
Pronounced “kare-eh-lon,” the instru-
ment has four octaves in range and is
played live weekdays, during holidays, for
special concerts, graduation and for some
on-campus weddings. The carillon’s quar-
terly tolls are mechanical, but the songs
played at noon and 5 p.m. Monday through
Friday are not. Students such as Morrissey
play them live four days a week.
As Morrissey’s arms and fists rhythmical-
ly thrust keys resembling rolling pins, she
hits each one with a different amount of
force. The weights of the bells vary, and the
heavier the bell, the more force is needed.
Striking one key with a certain pressure,
the next key with a little more pressure, and
so on is the key to keeping the campus-
wide sound smooth.
Morrissey hits the last notes of the Alma
Mater, high above the busy college world
below, slaps a high-five with her classmate
Anna Temple, and smiles out the window
that overlooks The University of Kansas.
She then turns a page, studies the notes for
a quick second, takes a deep breath and
resumes her pounding. Morrissey now plays
“Toccata for 42 Bells,” and her body moves
in sync with the notes — slower, then faster;
harder, then softer, as Temple watches.
“It’s not a hard instrument to play, but it’s
a hard one to play well,” Temple, Seneca
senior, said.
Temple watches her classmate play, nod-
ding her head along with the harmony, and
at once they both laugh. Morrissey missed a
note, but she’s immediately back on track,
harmonizing the heavier bells with the
lighter ones in one balanced performance
to complete the piece.
Morrissey and Temple are two of about
10 students who play and study the carillon
each semester. Elizabeth Berghout,
University Carillonneur, teaches carillon
classes in the School of Fine Arts, at levels
100, 300 and 621. Students of any major
may study the carillon, whether they’re
undergraduate or graduate students.
Lara Walter, Stephenville, Texas graduate
student, said Berghout sold her on the idea
of studying the carillon, and she had no
regrets.
Walter said her musical performances
could add to the environment surrounding
the carillon and the Campanile. She said
the music was regularly associated with
Potter Lake, napping or sledding on the
hill, walking to class, and Memorial
Stadium. Walter described the impact of the
music she plays as “immediate” and said
she liked being so close to all the traditions
and superstitions related to the Campanile.
“I enjoy being able to make music that
has such a spirit of community behind it,”
Walter said.
Both Walter and Temple said they hoped
to continue playing the carillon in the
future. Walter has visited carillons all over
the country, meeting other carillonneurs
and playing different carillon instruments.
Each carillon is a little different, depending

online poll
Erin Morrissey, Portland senior, plays the
KU alma mater on the carillon, a stationary
set of chromatically tuned bells, in the
Campanile every Monday, Tuesday,
Wednesday and Friday. Morrissey has played
the carillon since August 2004. Each of the
53 bells for the carillon were cast in
Loughborough, England, at the John Taylor
Bell Foundry. The bells arrived by railroad car
in Lawrence on May 1, 1951. The total
weight for all of the bells is more than 36
tons. There are 30 foot pedals on the carillon.
The layout of the pedals are similar to the lay-
out of the keys on a piano. Unlike a piano the
carillon is usually played by using closed fists
to hit the keys. The springs are part of the
connection between the pedals and the keys.
The springs allow the pedals, once pushed
down, to come back to their original position.

Season just
a ‘stepping
stone’
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — While most of Kansas
fans were sleeping last night something monu-
mental happened to two members of the Kansas
women’s basketball team.
“At 12:01 tonight this team becomes theirs,”
coach Bonnie Henrickson said following her
team’s season-ending
loss to Missouri.
Henrickson was refer-
ring to juniors Crystal
Kemp, forward, and
Erica Hallman, guard.
“They are seniors.”
Yesterday Kemp and
Hallman gave both Henrickson and Jayhawk fans
everywhere a taste of what could be a successful
season for Kansas. Kemp scored a career-high 27
points and grabbed 11 rebounds, her 10th double-
double of the season. Hallman scored 19 points
and dished out five assists.

Inept ending
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Crystal Kemp and Erica
Hallman did everything they could to win, but the
rest of the Jayhawks just couldn’t get it done.
Kemp scored a career-high 27 points and
pulled down 11 rebounds, while Hallman added
19 points and five assists in the Jayhawks’ 62-57
loss to the Missouri Tigers in the opening round
of the Big 12 Conference women’s basketball
tournament yesterday.
“I did have a career high, but we fell short of the
victory,” Kemp, junior forward, said. “I’d rather have
two points and a win than 35 points and a loss.”
Combined, Kemp and Hallman, junior guard,
were 19-for-33 from the field. The rest of the
Jayhawks were just 5-for-31. Only four Jayhawks
scored in the loss. Senior guard Aquanita Burras
scored eight points and grabbed five rebounds in
39 minutes of action.
The Jayhawks shot 51 percent from the field in
the first half but managed only 25 percent in the
second half.
The Jayhawks trailed by four with 13:26 to play
in the game when Hallman found Kemp for a
layup. Kemp was fouled on the play and hit a free
throw to cut the deficit to one. On the ensuing
Missouri possession, Kemp blocked a shot by
Missouri junior center Christelle N’Garsanet and
found Hallman, who hit a running layup and was
again fouled, giving the Jayhawks the 44-43 lead.
The teams traded baskets for the next few min-
utes with the lead changing hands. After Hallman
hit a three-point shot with just under 7 minutes
remaining, the Jayhawks led 55-51, their biggest
lead of the second half.
When N’Garsanet hit a jumper to cut the
Jayhawk lead to two with 6:20 to go, both teams
suddenly didn’t score. Kansas missed its next
nine shots, but didn’t fall behind as the Tigers
committed four straight turnovers.
Missouri junior guard LaToya Bond, who fin-
ished with 12 points, drove the lane and scored on
a layup to tie the game at 55 with 2:39 to play. No
one scored until Hallman was called for fouling
Bond with 54 seconds remaining. Bond hit both
free throws, giving the Tigers the lead.
Hallman drove to the hoop on the Jayhawks’
next possession, but her floater rimmed out.
Carlynn Savant, Missouri sophomore forward,
grabbed the rebound and was fouled by Kansas
freshman forward Taylor McIntosh.
Savant hit both free throws to extend the lead
to 59-55. The Jayhawks pushed the ball up the
floor and Hallman heaved a half-court pass to
Kemp, who scored the Jayhawks’ first basket in
more than 6 minutes, cutting the deficit to two
with 20 seconds to play.
After Savant was fouled and made one of two
free throws, the Jayhawks had an opportunity to
tie it with a three-point shot. Instead of going for
the tie, Hallman drove the lane and her short
jumper hit the rim and missed.
“We wanted to go for a two for one,” Kansas
coach Bonnie Henrickson said. “If we don’t
make the three, and then have to foul, it’s back to
a two-possession game. Also, we would have ran
10 or 12 seconds off of the clock, setting up a play
for a three-pointer.”
EeTisha Riddle, sophomore forward, hit two
free throws to secure the victory for Missouri.
The Jayhawks finished the season at 12-16.
Seniors Burras and Blair Waltz played their last
game as Jayhawks last night.

Despite worthy efforts by two Kansas players,
Jayhawks lose to Tigers in Big 12 Tournament
▼ BOWLING
Season
champs
deserve bids
Leave it to the Ivy League to
show the rest of us how it’s done.
While every other Division I
basketball conference rewards
its tournament champion with
an automatic bid to the NCAA
Tournament, the Ivy League
gives its bid to the regular-sea-
son champion.
In other words, the team that
most deserves to be in the Big
Dance.
It doesn’t take a rocket scien-
tist to see that winning a confer-
ence title during the course of
many weeks is a better achieve-
ment than winning a conference
tournament during the span of a
few days.
But for some reason, only the
brainiacs at Harvard and Yale
have resisted the urge to sell out
to the popularity of postseason
conference tournaments.
A three- or four-day tourna-
ment doesn’t prove anything.
Even the worst team can get hot
and make a run through its con-
ference tournament.
In 1997, Fairfield finished the
regular season with an 11-18
record but ran the table in the
Metro Atlantic Athletic
Conference Tournament and
snuck into the field of 64. In
1998, Prairie View A&M won
the Southwestern Athletic
Conference Tournament after
having a 10-16 regular season
record.
Did those teams earn the
right to compete for the nation-
al championship by playing well
for that brief span?
I don’t think so. Especially
because not every conference
tournament is played on a neu-
tral court. Most small confer-
ences rotate their postseason
tournaments around their
schools’ home arenas, and so do
some of the major conferences.
Memphis, for example, is hold-
ing this year’s Conference USA
Tournament.
No team should get that
unfair advantage while playing
for something as important as a
bid to the NCAA Tournament.
Why do you think the NCAA
Tournament holds every game,
including its play-in game, on a
neutral court?
Take a look at Davidson this
year. This team stormed through
the Southern Conference with a
perfect 16-0 record. Its next
closest competitor finished with
a 10-6 record.
After dominating its league and
winning the regular season crown
by six games, there was no doubt
that Davidson was the best team
in the Southern Conference. Did
the Wildcats need to put their
postseason future on the line for
three more games?
Well, Davidson had to, and
it lost in the second round of
its conference tournament to
9-7 North Carolina-
Greensboro, which went on to
lose to 10-6 Tennessee-
Chattanooga in the champi-
onship game. It just happened
to be played in Chattanooga,
Tenn.
Davidson did something
Kansas couldn’t do — win at
Missouri — earlier this year, but
because the Southern
Conference has no national
respect, Davidson can only
hope for an NIT bid. So, unless
Davidson gets a bid, a 10-6
team will represent the confer-
ence.

A Fine coaching career
A 21-year career at the
University of Kansas is coming
to a close for bowling coach
Mike Fine. He will begin a new
chapter of his coaching career
after this semester. Fine, who
turned the bowling team and
the Jaybowl into what it is
today, will take over the coach-
ing and recreation coordinator
position at Florida State
University.
Florida State approached
Fine about the position. It was
previously held by a friend,
Marvin Overby, who died of a
heart attack last summer. After a
few conversations with Florida
State, Fine applied for the posi-
tion and was officially named
Overby’s successor March 1.
Fine spent 19 of his 21 years
in the Jaybowl and worked full
time in the Student Union
Activities office the other two
years. During his tenure,
Jaybowl went through extensive
remodeling. The improvements
included bowling upgrades such
as new lanes, new ball returns
and a control desk, and more
setting-oriented features such as
black lights and cosmic bowling.

Guard shrugs
off his critics
A late class forced J.R. Giddens to be
late to the Jayhawks’ 4 p.m. practice yes-
terday.
At 4:03 p.m., he ran barefoot into the
gym, shoes in hand. He sat on a chair to
lace up and was immediately surrounded
by a herd of media members.
He coolly answered questions as he
tied on his ankle brace and sneaker,
while anxiously glancing up at his team-
mates warming up on the court.
Suddenly, Giddens jumped out of the
chair, pushed the media out of his way
and ran onto the court — one shoe off,
one on.
The Jayhawks were forming a huddle
at center court; he had to get with his
team.
Giddens is well aware of his critics,
especially in the last few months. He
knows people are upset that his shots
aren’t consistently dropping. He knows
his flamboyant personality is perceived
as selfish.
For a while, he listened and tried to
answer the criticism. But recently, he
realized that in doing that, he forgot to
enjoy the game.
“I think I was trying to mold myself to
what people wanted me to look like,
what people wanted me to do and how
people wanted me to act,” Giddens
said.
“I’d hit a shot or do something and
people be like, ‘Ah, he’s selfish; he does
this and he does that,’ and you don’t
want a selfish image or an image that is
negative to the team.”

Texas A&M’s Gillispie named
Big 12 coach of the year
COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Billy Gillispie
never doubted he would eventually win a lot of
games at Texas A&M. Hardly anyone thought it
would happen so soon.
“We exceeded our expectations,” Gillispie
said. “But expectations were fairly low here for a
good reason.”
Indeed. Gillispie, who came to Texas A&M
from Texas-El Paso last March, has engineered a
remarkable turnaround at what was one of the
nation’s worst big-time college basketball pro-
grams.
Coming off a winless record in Big 12
Conference play last season, the Aggies (19-8, 8-
8) have turned themselves into improbable con-
tenders for an at-large berth in the NCAA tourna-
ment. A&M’s 12-victory improvement is tied with
San Diego for the biggest swing in Division I.
For his role in bringing a taste of success to a
traditionally downtrodden program, Gillispie was
named the AP’s Big 12 coach of the year yester-
day. Gillispie was an overwhelming winner
among the panel of sportswriters that regularly
cover the league, earning 21 of 24 votes. Texas
Tech’s Bobby Knight got two votes and
Oklahoma’s Kelvin Sampson had one.
Gillispie had already proven he could turn
things around quickly. At UTEP, Gillispie finished
6-24 in his first season but went 24-8 the next
year and, advancing to the NCAA Tournament.
That tied for the greatest one-year turnaround in
college basketball history.

“Over 20 years we’ve been
able to do a pretty significant
renovation,” Fine said. “You
would not recognize the place
from when I started in ’84.”
Fine’s efforts with the bowl-
ing teams have turned them
from above-average into
nationally recognized pro-
grams. In 1998, after his two-
year stint in the SUA office,
Fine met with three returning
seniors and discussed ways to
improve the program.
In the spring of 1999, the
men’s team reached national
recognition when it made it to
the Intercollegiate Bowling
Championship. Fine had gotten
the women’s team to the IBC in
1995, and he said the team’s
philosophy led it to continued
success. That success reached
its crowning moment last year
when the men’s team won its
first IBC National
Championship under Fine.
It will be difficult to replace
what Fine, who was the 2001-
2002 Intercollegiate Bowling
Coach of the Year, has done for
the Jaybowl and the University
of Kansas. He served not only
as the bowling coach and recre-
ation coordinator, but also as a
mechanic in the Jaybowl. The
multi-talent necessity of the job
will make the search for Fine’s
replacement difficult.
“Mike is such a multi-talent-
ed, three-in-one guy,” said Jim
Waite, director of programs for
the Memorial Unions. “We may
have to resort to hiring an inde-
pendent person from the posi-
tion to serve as either a coach
or a mechanic.”
Waite said David Mucci,
director of KU Memorial
Unions, was reviewing the cur-
rent job description for recre-
ation coordinator.
“The review process will
probably take a week or two,”
Waite said. “I anticipate we will
head out on the search after
spring break.”
Waite said he hoped to have
a few of the current members of
the bowling team help with the
search for a new coordinator.
The fact that their coach will
be leaving at season’s end has
some team members wondering
where the program will go.
“We could be in some
trouble,” junior bowler Rhino
Page said. “But I know that
there’s a lot of people out there
that care about this program,
especially in town, so I don’t
think — by any means — it’s
going to go down the tubes.”
Page said Fine’s personality, in
particular, will be a huge loss.
Some bowlers had trouble ver-
balizing Fine’s place in their lives.
“He’s kind of like a father fig-
ure,” freshman bowler Nikki
Johannes said. “You can just go
and talk to him, he’s really easy
to talk to.”
For senior bowler Kelly Zapf,
who intends to come back next
year to help the team make the
transition, was holding back
tears.
“He’s not just my coach, he’s
not just my boss — he’s my friend
and I don’t know where I’d be
right now if it wasn’t for him,”
Zapf said. “I can’t imagine this
place without him next year.”
Fine’s decision to leave
Kansas came two weeks before
the IBC Sectional Qualifier on
March 19-20. Florida State is in
the same sectional as Kansas,
and junior bowler Zach Taylor
said he was concerned the team
might get wrapped up in how
Fine’s future players do.
“I think it’s kind of in the back
of all our minds,” Taylor said.
“We’ll probably be watching
Florida State a little more closely
than we would ordinarily.”
On May 20, Fine will end his
career as the recreation coordi-
nator for the Memorial Unions
and the Kansas bowling coach.

He has tried to keep a posi-
tive. He has found other ways
than just shooting to contribute.
Self has complimented him for
improving his defense. Against
Missouri, Giddens had a career-
high four steals.
“Last year, it was like if I did-
n’t hit shots, I had a bad game,”
Giddens said. “This year, I want
to come out and guard the
other team’s best player and do
the little things that help my
team.”
Giddens will be the first one
to say that he hasn’t played his
best basketball this year. But
statistically, his numbers aren’t
that much different from last
season.
After 26 games, Giddens is
shooting 35 percent from
behind the arc compared to 40
percent last year. He averaged
11.3 points per game last year
and he is putting up 10.3 this
season.
His teammates said he had
been missing something that
doesn’t appear on a stat sheet:
confidence.
“For him, I think it’s all men-
tal,” senior guard Aaron Miles
said. “It’s up to him to get his
confidence up and bring the
game that he expects himself to
bring.”
“I don’t fault his trying, but I
do sometimes fault his aggres-
siveness,” Self said. “I think he
could really, really try, but
when you are not confident
you are not very aggressive.”
In the Jayhawks’ last two
games, though, Giddens
looked like a player who was
regaining his confidence. Self
said his performance was one
of the few positives to come
out of a dismal second half at
Missouri.
“I thought he was very
aggressive and that it was evi-
dent getting four steals,” Self
said. “He went coast-to-coast
one time with his left hand;
that was a great play. He made
a couple of big shots and I
thought he was much better.”
Self said the Jayhawks need-
ed Giddens to step up this
weekend in the Big 12
Tournament. With senior guard
Keith Langford out with an
ankle injury, the Jayhawks will
need Giddens’ offense to make
up for Langford’s 15 points a
game and his defense to guard
opponents’ top perimeter play-
ers.
“He is going
to have to be
huge,” Self
said. “It is time
for J.R. to start
playing the
way that he is
capable of
playing, which
I believe he
will. I think
J.R. is an excellent ball player
and with Keith being out, we
are going to look to him more
and more to deliver. And cer-
tainly I think he is capable of
doing so.”
Keith Update
Keith Langford walked into
basketball practice yesterday
crutch-free. He was still sport-
ing the orthopedic boot on the
left ankle. He said the athletic
trainer took him off crutches
because he wanted him to get
used to walking with some dis-
comfort.
“That is the way I am going to
have to play,” Langford said.
Kansas coach Bill Self said it
was unlikely that Langford
would play in Friday’s Big 12
Tournament game.
“I don’t think there is any
reason to play him unless he is
close to being 100 percent,” Self
said. “Structurally he is fine,
but it is more of a pain tolerance
issue and knowing that if he
would tweak it again, he would
have to go through the process
again and it would be very
painful.”
“If he is not 85 to 90 percent,
we will not play him.”
Langford said he received
four treatments Monday and
was planning on going four
times yesterday. During treat-
ments he said the trainer used
ice, massage and some anti-
inflammatories.
He said the injury already
felt better than it did Sunday,
but there was still some dis-
comfort.
He said his goal was to play
this weekend, but he agreed
with Self that if he was not at
least 80 percent, he wouldn’t
play.
“I don’t want to be out there
and just look terrible and then
use it as an excuse,” he said. “If
I play, I want to be able to play
to the point where there are not
excuses. I want it to be me out
there playing.”

The two were the only form of
offense for the Jayhawks. The rest
of the team had only five field
goals. Henrickson admitted that
she has high hopes for next year.
“Everyone will be a year
older and have a year in the sys-
tem,” Henrickson said. “We
want to pat them on the back
for this season but also be able
to kick them in the tail to get
better for next year.”
Even with the success Kemp
and Hallman had this season,
they still need to improve for
next season, she said.
This season, The Associated
Press picked Kansas to finish
11th out of 12 teams in the Big
12. Most writers didn’t even
think women’s team would win
a game. It showed the skeptics
finishing 5-11 in the Big 12
Conference, good enough for
eighth place.
“As much as this loss hurts,
we can’t let it overshadow the
growth that we made this sea-
son,” Henrickson said. “This
year wasn’t enough, obviously,
because we had a losing record
and didn’t make the postseason.
But if we can make the same
amount of growth next season
that we did this season, good
things can happen.”
Disappointed with the defeat,
Kemp was still happy with this
season and is using it as a step-
ping stone to prepare for next
season.
“This season gives us a lot of
momentum going into next
year,” Kemp said. “The fact we
are going to be seniors is a plus
because we know what to expect
and how to lead the team.”
Hallman, who wiped away
tears before entering the inter-
view room, was also looking
forward to next season.
“We need to learn from today,
and get better in the offseason,”
Hallman said. “When our fresh-
man come in over the summer,
we need to get them on the
same page as everyone else. If
we keep listening to Coach, we
will be more successful than
this season.”
Not making the postseason is
something new for Henrickson,
who broke an 11-year postsea-
son streak by missing it this year.
While at Virginia Tech she aver-
aged 23 wins per season and had
an overall record of 158-62.
With Henrickson at the helm
and Kemp and Hallman primed
for a big senior season, next
year should be promising. If
Henrickson can get her incom-
ing recruiting class to buy into
her system, a return to postsea-
son is a possibility for
Henrickson and the Jayhawks.

This problem plagues the
small and mid-major confer-
ences because their conference
tournaments render the regular
season virtually worthless.
Vermont, despite owning an
RPI of 23, thought so little of its
at-large chances that coach
Tom Brennan sat his two lead-
ing scorers after clinching the
regular season America East
Conference Title. With its two
best players resting up before
the conference tournament,
Vermont suffered an embarrass-
ing loss to Maine.
Brennan said that he made
the move because he thought
the only way his team could
make the NCAA Tournament
was by winning the America
East Conference Tournament.
With all of this carnage going
on in the lesser known leagues
across the country, it certainly is
nice to be Pennsylvania, which
found out it would be playing in
the NCAA Tournament way
back on Feb. 26.
The Quakers won the Ivy
League by five games with a 13-
1 record and never had to worry
about the drama — and possi-
ble heartbreak — that comes
with losing one game in a point-
less postseason tournament.
✦ Robinett is an Austin, Texas,

Junior forward Crystal Kemp notched a career high in points to go with double-digit
rebounds, but it wasn’t quite enough to lift Kansas over Missouri. Each Tiger starter scored
eight or more points. The starting five combined for all of Missouri’s scoring.

Player’s memory pushes team to the end
The KU club hockey team
capped off an emotional second
semester in Columbia, Mo., last
weekend, when it played two
games against the Missouri
Tigers.
The team dedicated this sea-
son to sophomore Connor
Meigs, who died in a car acci-
dent during winter break. It fell
one game short of finishing
undefeated since the accident.
“The season was strength-
ened by and dedicated to
Connor Meigs,” senior forward
Joey Barghini said. “The second
half was dedicated to him, and
he will be in our memories for a
long time.”
On Saturday, the Jayhawks’
2-0 lead slipped away, and they
were tied with the Tigers head-
ing into the third period. Senior
forward David Hall scored the
first goal of the game for the
Jayhawks, and his last goal of
his career at the University of
Kansas. Both teams scored one
goal in the third, and the game
ended in a tie. All three of
Missouri’s goals came off power
plays.
“The special teams played a
key role in the game,” sopho-
more goaltender Zach Sias
said.
Sunday’s game was hard-
fought, as was evident when
both teams’ captains were
ejected from the game. The
game was just as tight a match-
up as Saturday’s game was, as
the teams were tied with three
goals apiece heading into the
third period. In the third
period, however, Missouri out-
scored Kansas 3-0 to give the
Jayhawks a 6-3 loss and the
first and only loss since winter
break.
“The game was very scrappy.
At the end of the game,
Missouri was cross-checking
and throwing cheap shots,
despite a three-goal lead,” Sias
said, “but we kept our class and
did not retaliate. The whole
while, the Missouri coaches just
laughed about so many penal-
ties being called.”
Barghini, who had an assist
in Saturday’s game, finished his
career with Kansas by scoring
the final goal of the season.
The goal was shorthanded,
meaning one of the Jayhawks’
players was in the penalty
box. It was Barghini’s fourth
shorthanded goal of the sea-
son, and led the team in that
category.
“It was an emotional game,
since I knew it was going to be
the last game I ever play,”
Barghini said. “It’s a nice feeling
getting the goal, although it
would have been better if we
would have won.”
Kansas and Missouri had
faced off in the Jayhawks’ home
opener back in September,
when the Tigers won 9-0.
“We bounced back showing
progress, and played two of our
best games all season. I couldn’t
be happier of how we have pro-
gressed,” Barghini said, “and
how the team was in shambles
and how we’ve stepped up and
become more focused and uni-
fied. The team will have many
good years ahead, and I will be
more than happy to be a fan of
the team.”
Meigs’ jersey traveled with
the team to Missouri and hung
behind their bench, as it has for
every game since his death.
The number 32 patches they
wear on their jerseys will be a
permanent reminder of Meigs,
as will the locker space he occu-
pied in the locker room.
“We are dedicating his jersey
number and the place in the
locker room where he always
was,” Barghini said, “so he will
always be in our memory.”

Freshman shoots for marquee play
When Kansas coach Bill Self
checked the voice mail on his
cell phone three weeks ago, he
listened to a message unlike any
other.
Freshman forward Darnell
Jackson called Self to say he
wasn’t taking advantage of the
opportunity Self was giving him,
and things were about to
change.
“For an 18-year-old kid to say
that shows you quite a bit,” Self
said.
The phone call came as a sur-
prise to Self because the day
before Jackson called, Self
admitted that he thought he
wasn’t giving Jackson a fair
opportunity at playing time.
After being buried on the
bench for most of the season,
Jackson didn’t get down.
Instead, he challenged himself
to work harder in practice, and
Self took notice. Recently, he
has increased his playing time
and has been one of the first
forwards to come off the bench
in a game.
“Since we had that conversa-
tion, it’s like a light has come
on,” Self said. “He realized that
there were no more free lunch-
es. It’s unfortunate that it hap-
pened late in the season, but
he’s a much better practice play-
er and is giving himself the
opportunity to get into games
now.”
Jackson said it wasn’t always
easy for him to stay upbeat, but
finally realized that his time
would come. Though he never
felt he was on the same level as
starting forwards, junior
Christian Moody and senior
Wayne Simien, he believed it
was his duty to elevate his game
in practice.
“I just had to turn my life
around and start looking at the
positives,” Jackson said. “I like
to be on the court during games
and to do that I had to start
doing things in practice. I’ve just
been playing hard.”
The Oklahoma City native
said that Self stressed turning
hard work into a routine. It was-
n’t enough for him to set screens
and rebound well in the occa-
sional practice — it had to be
done at all times.
The idea of giving maximum
effort hit home with Jackson
because he never had to try his
hardest to be good in high
school.
“I was thinking this would be
just like high school,” Jackson
said. “But I figured out that it
wasn’t. This is a Big 12 school,
you know, Division I. It’s a lot
better competition.”
In addition, Jackson said he
was able to turn the corner
because of the support sopho-
more guard J.R. Giddens gave
him. Giddens is also from
Oklahoma City, and is a close
friend of Jackson’s.
Giddens told Jackson to
watch the others, because he’s
as athletic as those guys, and
he just needed to get out there
and show people what he
could do.
“He’s really talented,”
Giddens said. “He’s starting to
get a feel for the game. He’s
made some vicious dunks in
practice, and he’s only going to
get better. I’m proud of him.”
Since Jackson began playing
with a renewed attitude he has
been fighting for loose balls up
and down the court.
He has attacked rebounds
like never before, and set
screens to get the guards open.
In the last three games he has
played an average of 9 minutes.
He has only scored five points
in that time, but he played the
way Self wanted him to, and at
6-foot-8 tall, 240 pounds, he’s
given the Jayhawks a much-
needed inside presence.
“We need someone besides
Moody and Simien to play,” Self
said. “I like how Darnell is play-
ing. He’s a body down there.”
Jackson said that he was
happy about the minutes he is
getting, but still thinks he
won’t be a key contributor for
Kansas until next year. He is,
however, excited about his new
role filling in for Moody and
Simien, and hopes to play like
an NBA All-Star in the NCAA
Tournament.
“Coach told me he wants me
to play like Ben Wallace,”
Jackson said. “To do that I’ve
got to block every shot, get
every rebound and take charges.
That’s my role right there.”

Linebacker signs
with Kansas City
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Former
Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker
Kendrell Bell signed a seven-
year contract with the Kansas
City Chiefs yesterday, Chiefs
President Carl Peterson said.
No terms of the deal were
released.
Bell, 6-foot-1, 257 pounds,
was an unrestricted free agent
after spending four seasons
with the Steelers. He was the
defensive rookie of the year
and played in the Pro Bowl in
2001, after recording 88 tackles,
nine sacks and a pair of forced
fumbles in his first season.
Bell missed all but three
games last season with shoul-
der and groin injuries.
The Augusta, Ga., native had
his best season in 2003, when
he was an alternate Pro Bowl
selection after recording 108
tackles and five sacks, an inter-
ception and a forced fumble.
“We’re pleased to acquire
Kendrell’s services and we
think he will make an impact
for the Chiefs in 2005 and
beyond,” Peterson said. “He’s a
quality football player, as well
as a quality person.”

Creighton wins
conference title
ST. LOUIS — Creighton
leaned heavily on its bench and
the usual barrage of three-
pointers to win its fifth Missouri
Valley Conference tournament
in seven years.
Reserves Dane Watts and
Jimmy Motz combined for half
of the team’s 12 three-point
shots, and the Bluejays pulled
away late for a 75-57 victory
over Southwest Missouri State
in the championship game
Monday night.
Motz was 4-for-7 from three-
point range and scored 12
points for Creighton (23-10).
Watts was 2-for-4 from three-
point range and had 14 points.
Deke Thompson had 14
points and Anthony Shavies
had 10 for Southwest Missouri
State (18-12), which also lost
the tournament championship
game last year and was shut
out of the postseason.
The team has been in the title
game five times in the last
eight seasons, but hasn’t won
since 1992.
Coach Barry Hinson said his
team would get an NIT bid this
season.
Johnny Mathies was chosen
as tournament MVP, and was
joined on the all-tournament
team by Motz, Nate Funk,
Tamarr Maclin and Darren
Brooks.

✦ Today’s Birthday. You’re pretty good
at fixing things this year, for a couple
of reasons. You have the patience to
plan ahead, and you’re also uncom-
monly lucky. Even crazy ideas could
work.
✦ Aries (March 21-April 19) Today is a 6.
You’re a warrior, but that doesn’t mean
you don’t have a spiritual side. You
qualify as a miracle worker, especially
right about now.
✦ Taurus (April 20-May 20) Today is an 8.
There’s more than money to put away
to make your old age secure. You also
should invest in gifts of love to gain
your friends’ good will. This part is
really fun.
✦ Gemini (May 21-June 21) Today is a
6. You may not have wanted to take
on more responsibility, but the
opportunity is there. The money’s not
abundant yet, but it's steady. Talk it
over with your partner before decid-
ing. He or she will have less of your
time.
✦ Cancer (June 22-July 22) Today is an 8.
An unexpected development messes
up your schedule. Don’t fly into a tizzy
fit. Take the time to do it right and
you’ll save more time later.
✦ Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Today is a 4.
Conditions are good for devising
methods to greater increase your
wealth. Do the homework, and follow
through. Thinking about it counts, too.
✦ Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Today is a 6.
A very sensitive and imaginative per-
son wants your attention now. Give it
freely. This request is not made very
often. Besides, with your encourage-
ment, miracles could happen.
✦ Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Today is a 5.
Immerse yourself as deeply as possi-
ble in a creative project. You don’t
have to know how to finish it when
you start. The Muses will assist you.
✦ Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Today is a
10. Staying home with loved ones is
your best option tonight. You’ll find
solutions to problems you didn’t even
know you had, and it will be fun.
✦ Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Today is a
5. Home and family definitely take top
priority now. Try not to let them get on
your nerves; offer innovations. Make
positive changes.
✦ Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Today is an
8. You’ll become more curious the
more you get into the subject. You
may never master it, but that doesn’t
even matter. The joy is in the doing.
✦ Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Today is a 5.
The money’s pouring into your pock-
ets. Did you hit the jackpot? If you did,
it was by working a system you
devised all by yourself. Work’s
involved in this bonanza.
✦ Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Today is an
8. You’re very powerful now, and yet,
you’ll encounter another test. For this
one, it’s going to really help if you
have faith in yourself. Hold your
ground.

High Scorers stay true to their name
The Hoosiers would have
needed Gene Hackman as their
coach to come back from their
28-point halftime deficit during
their intramural game against
the High Scorers.
This was not a tale of redemp-
tion, however, and the aptly-
named High Scorers defeated
the Hoosiers 73-45 in the first
round of intramural tournament
play Sunday night.
The High Scorers remain
undefeated at 4-0 and are four
wins away from the co-recre-
ational title.
The season ends for the
Hoosiers with a 1-3 record.
They were beaten by an average
of 22 points in their defeats.
There was no shortage of play-
ers willing to step up and hit
shots for the High Scorers. They
played a zone defense, allowing
open three-point shots through-
out the entire game.
Nick Rubio, Goodland senior,
knocked down a pair of threes in
the first two minutes. Those
shots and others helped the team
open the game with a 21-6 lead.
“We’ve got some good shoot-
ers, so any team that tries to zone
us is usually in trouble,” said
Joey Koerner, Ness City senior.
With less than five minutes to
play, timeout was called, and
the teams regrouped for one
final run to end the half.
This time, the High Scorers
were led by Efe Ekpere. The Port
Charlotte, Fla. senior swished
buckets from almost everywhere
on the court as the team scored
13 unanswered points.
The Hoosiers scored most of
their first-half points from the
free-throw line. They went 54
percent overall, which com-
pared favorably to the High
Scorers’ 22 percent.
The second half opened well
for the Hoosiers, as they cut the
lead to 22.
Koerner struck right back for
the High Scorers. He had three
three-pointers in a span of less
than 90 seconds.
“When you get hot like that,
you just want to keep shooting,”
Koerner said.
Toward the end of the game,
the team focused on making
highlight-reel plays. Ekpere
attempted an alley-oop dunk,
but the ball was delivered too
low. Koerner continued to fire
away, finishing the second half
with four three-point baskets.
The team will look to keep its
unblemished record intact as
the tournament continues for
them on Friday night.

Stormy weather cuts golfers’ game
The Kansas men’s golf team
finished in a tie for fourth place
among 15 teams at the
Louisiana Classics at
Oakbourne Country Club in
Lafayette, La., yesterday.
Kansas had a tournament
total of 586, which left the men
four shots back. Southern
Methodist University took the
title with a team score of 582,
good for six over par in the tour-
nament. The Mustangs were led
by Dan Kleckner in the final
round, who fired a two-under-
par 70. Kleckner, individually,
finished the tournament in a tie
for second place.
Stormy weather on Monday
kept golfers off the course that
afternoon. The tournament was
supposed to consist of three
rounds, two played on Monday
and the final round played yes-
terday. Thunderstorms caused
the cancellation of the second
round on Monday and it was
not made up.
“I think that it’s disappointing
that we won’t get to play all
three rounds,” coach Ross
Randall said, “but I think that
we could have caught the teams
in front of us if we played well
enough.”
The shortened tournament
didn’t seem to have an effect on
sophomore golfer Tyler
Docking. He led the Jayhawks
for the third tournament in a
row. Docking finished in a tie
for second place with a two-
round total of 142, two-under.
“Tyler is really playing great
golf right
now,” Randall
said. “He is
playing smart
and steady
and it’s really
fun to watch.”
S e n i o r
Andrew Price
also played
well for the
J a y h a w k s .
Price finished the tournament in
a tie for 18th with a two-round
total of 148, even after a slug-
gish final round score of 76.
Sophomore Gary Woodland
also tied for 18th shooting 72.
Junior Pete Krsnich had a two-
round total of 149 and junior
Luke Trammell, playing as an
individual, finished with a total
score of 150.
Kansas will next be in action
on March 23 when the team will
travel to Stevinson, Calif., to
play in the Colorado/Stevinson
Ranch Intercollegiate.

Big Unit debuts in
Yankee defeat
Randy Johnson didn’t display
his overpowering fastball or his
menacing glare in his first
spring start. But the New York
Yankees were just happy to see
The Big Unit take the mound.
Meanwhile, Mark Mulder
rebounded from a sloppy debut
and gave the St. Louis
Cardinals a glimpse of the No.
1 starter they expected.
Johnson worked two innings
in an 8-2 loss to the Atlanta
Braves at Kissimmee, Fla. He
threw 36 pitches, 22 for strikes,
and gave up a two-run homer
to old nemesis Chipper Jones
in an uneven performance.
