New policy making noise
Noise citations are on the rise
after a Lawrence Police
Department policy change on
Jan. 19.
SInce the change in January,
Lawrence police have issued a
total of 54 noise citations. In
2004, they issued 48 citations
for the whole year, according to
police records.
The previous policy required
that police officers contact the
complaining party before issu-
ing a noise citation. Under the
current policy, police officers
can respond to the site of the
disturbance without contacting
the people who complained.
Sgt. Dan Ward, Lawrence
Police Department spokesman,
said the increase in enforcement
showed that the policy change
had been effective in allowing
police officers to respond to
noise disturbances.
Shannon Firestone, Overland
Park junior, has seen the effects
of the change firsthand.
A Lawrence police officer
responded to a noise complaint
at one of her recent parties after
her neighbor called police, she
“They we’re really nice about
it though,” she added. “They
just told us to turn down the
stereo and smoke in the back.”
Sam Deutch, Overland Park
junior, said that he had seen an
increase in the number of police
officers at parties.
He didn’t think the policy
change would have much of an
effect on curbing parties.

Tearing down
campus hate
Hate is not a KU value.
Those who share this belief
can express it in unique ways
this week, through the
University of Kansas’ Hate
Out Week. The purpose of the
week is to bring awareness
about issues of hate and
oppression that still exist on
campus, said Santos Nunez,
director of the Multicultural
Resource Center.
The MRC, the Office of
Multicultural Affairs, the
Diversity Peer Education Team
and the Association of
University Residence Halls are
sponsoring the week.
The organizations have sever-
al events planned this week,
including a brown bag discus-
sion on same-sex marriage and a
dialogue intended to answer the
questions, “How far have we
come?” and “Discrimination
and Oppression in our society:
does it still exist?”

Coalition platforms
Student Senate elections will be held April 13 and 14. Here is a look at the platforms of the three
coalitions and their likelihood of feasibility.
✦ Platform issue: Delta Force will partner with Watkins Memorial Health Center to bring free pregnancy and STD
testing along with condom dispensers in University housing.
No hidden
✦ Platform issue: Work to eliminate all fees associated with academic services including transcripts and career
services. Students already pay $574 in student fees each year.
✦ Platform feasibility: Rick Morrell, associate vice provost for student success, said the fees for transcripts would
have to be paid some way. “We have not had any discussions about this is in our department yet,” Morrell said.
✦ Platform issue: Implement a requirement that additions or increases to student fees be approved by referendum.
✦ Platform feasibility: Steve Munch, student body president, had to veto a bill last month to ensure that no fees
were increased without a referendum. No fees were added or increased without a student vote this year.
Student Voice opposes the proposed CLAS differential tuition — which the majority of students voted against —
and any other unnecessary tuition increases.
✦ Platform issue: Oppose guaranteed tuition, because it projects increases in tuition before it occurs.
✦ Platform feasibility: Munch recently submitted a draft of the proposed guaranteed tuition to University adminis-
Smart tuition
✦ Platform issue: Delta Force plans to restore block funding for multicultural groups, including Black Student
Union, Asian American Student Union, First Nations Student Association and Hispanic American Leadership
✦ Platform feasibility: Aaron Quisenberry, associate director of Student Involvement and Leadership Center, said
that if these student groups did receive block funding, it would not be right away. “We just gave out block fund-
ing for the next two years,” Quisenberry said. “If these groups do want and try to apply for block funding, they
would have to wait to apply until November 2006.”
By Daniel Berk ✦ ✦ Kansan staff writer
✦ Platform issue: Allow all students to submit legislation to Student Senate through an open-bill submission
✦ Platform issue: Protect fraternity and sorority, residence hall, scholarship hall, Black Student Union and
Hispanic American Leadership Organization seats on Student Senate.
Open student
✦ Platform issue: Work with the Athletics Department to implement an online ticket redemption system for basket-
✦ Platform feasibility: Jim Marchiony, associate athletics director, said this was something the Athletics
Department was already working on. “We’re not doing this because any particular group has asked us to do it,”
Marchiony said in a previous article in The University Daily Kansan. “We are doing this based on our desire to
improve the system and have the best possible system for students.”
✦ Platform issue: Online service to pay our parking tickets, instead of waiting in line.
✦ Platform feasibility: Director of Parking Donna Hultine said the parking department has been working on this
issue for a year and a half. Hultine said there have been hold-ups because of the parking department’s software.
“We think we are very close to making this happen,” Hultine said. “This is something that will hopefully happen
even if KUnited is not elected.”

The Lawrence Police
Department has issued 54
noise citations since a pol-

Event to raise Sudan aid
When a tsunami hit Southeast Asia
in December, bobbie-frances mcdon-
ald thought it was a tragedy for more
than one reason.
The tsunami devastated hundreds
of thousands of people. Thousands
more responded with donations to aid
survivors. While mcdonald mourned
for survivors, she mourned just as
much for the loss of donations to assist
relief efforts in another tragedy —
genocide in Sudan, Africa.
“The tsunami was terrible,” said
mcdonald, who operates Sudan
Advocacy Action Forum, a grassroots
group that educates people about
Sudan. “Woman had their children
ripped from their arms. But women in
Sudan have had their babies ripped
from their arms and killed for the last
25 years.”
At Liberty Hall tomorrow, mcdon-
ald will speak about genocide in
Sudan for a benefit concert hosted by
Amnesty International, a human
rights organization. The event, called
“Here. With Sudan,” will feature
seven local bands, three guest speak-
ers and four film screenings. All pro-
ceeds from the concert will go to
Doctors Without Borders, an organi-
zation that delivers emergency aid to
victims of tragedy.
Austin Hart, Wichita senior and
president of Amnesty International’s
KU chapter, said he hoped the event
would make people more aware of the
situation in Sudan.
“Right now it is the worst humani-
tarian crisis in the world,” Hart said.
Sudan has been in a complex civil
war since 1989. Over 340,000 people
have died, and each year about 30,000
people die in Darfur, a region in west-
ern Sudan about the size of France,
mcdonald said.
The genocide is a result of multiple
things. It’s a complex combination of
race, religion, natural resources, land-
grabbing, displacement and ethnicity,
mcdonald said.
She learned about Sudan in 1999
after reading about it in the newspa-
per. She later traveled to Sudan on her
own. As a nurse, mcdonald thought
she could do something positive. But
with no electricity and only one doc-
tor for every 86,000 people, the trip
was an eye-opener.
“I was so useless,” mcdonald said.
“When I came back I was committed
to finding justice and peace. But it
wouldn’t be by antibiotics, it would be
by politics.”
That is why mcdonald will speak at
the benefit concert tomorrow.
Spreading awareness about Sudan
was more important than raising
money, said Bryan Onwuka, a 2002
KU graduate who helped organize
bands for the event.
But Amnesty International was
encouraging people to make dona-
tions, Onwuka said.
People are suffering and dying from
deadly infections, upper respiratory
infections, cholera, polio and diarrhea.
Many of these people just need water,
honey and salt to cure diarrhea, he said.
“That stuff only costs about 20
cents,” Onwuka said. “Any donation
will go a long way to helping these

Issues unite Asian students
Grant Huang and eleven other KU
students piled into three cars last week-
end for what turned out to be a 17-hour
road trip to the University of Michigan.
The trip would have been shorter,
but a tire blowout less than three
hours into the trip caused a four-hour
delay. The group arrived at its destina-
tion, the Midwest Asian American
Student Union spring conference, just
two hours before the first workshop
Saturday morning.
Huang, St. Louis freshman, said he
hoped next year’s conference would
be a little closer to Lawrence.
Students from Asian Student
Unions from Midwest universities
attended educational workshops, lis-
tened to keynote speakers and net-
worked and socialized with other
Asian students from the Midwest.
Lara Puno, Leawood senior, said
she took this educational opportunity
to connect with other Asian students.
“The Asian population at KU is
kind of limited,” she said. “When you
see 700 Asians in one room, it’s kind
of mind-blowing.”
She said she planned on using the
networking knowledge from the con-
ference to try and unite the Asian
organizations on the KU campus.
Through various political, commu-
nity and media workshops, students
learned about legislation and the
importance of networking, the experi-
ence of being Asian in the United
States and Asian stereotypes in the
media, particularly those in the hip-
hop culture.
Victoria Li, Overland Park junior,
and president of the KU Asian
American Student Union, said she
wanted students to use the informa-
tion they learned in the conference to
improve the Kansas Union.
“We can always get new experience
bringing things back to the school
that will make AASU become better,”
Li said.
She also said she wanted the
University to become an official mem-
ber of the MAASU, to have members
serve on its board and to someday
host the conference in Lawrence.
Last weekend’s conference was a first
for Huang. After seeing three speakers
discuss issues concerning Asian-
Americans, he said he wanted AASU to
bring a speaker to the University.
“Getting one of the speakers can
bring awareness to other people and
how they are judging minorities,”
Huang said. “There are still people that
just don’t understand how our culture
works and why we are the way we are.”

sultant services manager.
No damage to the artifacts had
been reported.

to the ceiling panels, but it was not

Institute director. A temporary

Lacy did not comment on the cost
of the repairs on the advice of
University legal counsel.
McPherson Contractors, Inc. has
offered to make a number of repairs
to correct the problem, Scannell
The University’s legal counsel is
reviewing those offers to ensure that
the proper people are held responsi-
ble, he said.
Normally, the roofing contractor
would be responsible, but it went
out of business after the Institute
was built. McPherson Contractors is
responsible for the repairs because it
hired the roofing contractor,
Scannell said.
Ray Buyle, project manager from
McPherson Contractors, said the cost
of repairs would not be known until
the University clarified exactly what
needed to be done to fix the roof.
“There are problems on every
construction project,” Scannell said.
“They have been pretty responsive,
and we hope to get it resolved in the
near future.”
The University legal counsel is
reviewing the proposal and will

That’s in addition to two other
awards from continuing educa-

from Parkinson’s advocates and
“Nowhere in our education
do we learn to move efficiently
until we are injured or have
problems,” she said.
Parkinson’s is a neurodegen-
erative disease that attacks the
part of the brain responsible for
movement and muscle control.
People with Parkinson’s lose
motor control over time, and
move stiffly and uncomfortably,
and have difficulty forming
facial expressions.
Hamburg’s program mini-
mizes these problems with
exercises that involve the area
of the brain responsible for the
force and direction of move-

‘Miss Saigon’ to open tonight
From Los Angeles to

to millions. The musical by
Alain Boublil and Claude-

of “Les Miserables,” will be per-
formed tonight and tomorrow

For Alan Gillespie, who plays
Chris, an American Marine in
Saigon, visiting small cities is a
memorable part of the tour
“I love the big cities, but
sometimes there are smaller
places that are great and you
didn’t even know anything
about them,” he said.
Gillespie and Laurie
Cadevida, who plays Kim, a
young Vietnamese woman, have
visited more than 60 cities in the
United States and Canada this
“Kim is a difficult character
to play. She is an innocent,
naïve girl who falls in love for
the first time. She is sad, then
happy, then yearning for her
love, and then protecting her
son,” she said. “I get off stage,
and I am so physically and emo-
tionally drained.”

✦ Platform issue: Delta Force will partner with the Parking Department to allow a one-time fine reduction on one parking ticket, mean-
ing a $20 ticket will be reduced to a $5, and a $5 ticket will be free.
✦ Platform feasibility: Donna Hultine, director of parking services, said that it was not a bad idea and something the parking commis-
sion would consider. “In order for this to happen, the parking commission would have to approve it,” Hultine said. “I think it is some-
thing the commission would consider because everyone can make a mistake once, and we know that.”
✦ Platform issue: With a $400,000 surplus, Student Voice will fund wireless Internet in the residence halls.
✦ Platform feasibility: Allison Rose Lopez, public relations and marketing manager for KU Information Services, in a previous article
in the Kansan said that adding wireless Internet to the residence halls presents potential problems in cost and feasibility. “It is tech-
nically feasible to provide KU Wireless Zones in the lobby areas of student housing facilities,” Rose Lopez said. “It just isn’t feasible
to provide 100 percent coverage for 4,000 students down every wing of every hall.”
✦ Platform issue: Bring Chipotle to The Underground.
✦ Platform feasibility: Mucci said that there would have to be some questions that were answered before he would consider bringing
Chipotle to the Underground. “We have not pursued Chipotle nor have they pursued us,” Mucci said. “We would have to talk to
them about square feet and if they are going into the campus market.”
✦ Platform issue: Reform KU on Wheels to make it more efficient and effective.
campus life
KU Info
✦ Platform issue: Delta Force will return KU Info to the Kansas Union and restore its ability to answer any question, from what time a
club is meeting to how many quarts are in a gallon.
✦ Platform feasibility: David Mucci, director of the Kansas Union, said if Senate showed interest in returning KU Info to the Kansas
Union, they would do what they could to accommodate them.“There would be a number of questions regarding space in the Union,”
Mucci said. “However, if that is what Senate wants, we would work with them.”
✦ Platform issue: Students do not have an easily accessible print, copy and mail center on campus. KUnited will work to build a
Student Printing and Services Center.
✦ Platform feasibility: The Union has handed in a proposal to the University proposing a printing services center in the Atrium in the
3rd level of the Kansas Union, said director of the Kansas Union David Mucci. “The University administration has our proposal and
we are just waiting now,” Mucci said.
✦ Platform issue: Extend hours at the Student Recreation Fitness Center to benefit students.
✦ Platform feasibility: Mary Chappell, director of recreation services, said the center had already considered extending the hours,
and was checking to see if they could afford it. “This is something we have had a lot of requests for,” Chappell said. “This is some-
thing that could get done even if KUnited doesn’t get elected.”
✦ Platform issue: Develop a self-defense program to be available to all students.
✦ Platform feasibility: Chappell said the Emily Taylor Women’s Resource Center had formed a committee to look into bringing a self-
defense program to campus. Chappell said the committee had been looking into it for a while.
✦ Platform issue: Open parking spaces at the Kansas Union parking garage at 5 p.m. to increase parking proximity.
✦ Platform feasibility: Hultine said there are a few hurdles that would make it difficult for this to happen. “This has been requested by
the Union before and has been shut down twice by the parking commission,” Hultine said. “It is hard to limit our potential revenue
because we are paying $1 million in bond debt for the garage.”
✦ Platform issue: Purchase energy from renewable sources for all student funded buildings through a “green tag” system.
✦ Platform feasibility: There was a proposed $1 fee for green tags that was withdrawn by Senate. Jeff Dunlap, student body vice pres-
ident, said he didn’t think the Student Environmental Board had enough time to look over all the information concerning renewable
energy. “This is something that could be funded other ways besides student fees,” Dunlap said. “However, in my mind it would seem
that there would have to be some augmentation of student fees.”
False Fire
✦ Platform issue: Delta Force will install fire alarms in University residence halls that are equipped with packets of dye that explode in
all directions when alarms are pulled to help deter false alarms.
✦ Platform feasibility: Ken Stoner, director of Student Housing, said the fire alarms at some residence halls are already equipped with
some type of guard. “We already have some residue that is left if the fire alarm is pulled,” Stoner said. “I haven’t heard of anything
where the ink sprays in all directions.”
Fixing State
✦ Platform issue: Delta Force will create a comprehensive lobbying campaign that incorporates students, faculty, staff, parents, legis-
lators and other members of our various communities.

one fraternity at the University.
On Feb. 19, police officers responded to a
noise complaint at Phi Kappa Theta, 1111 W.

Upon arrival, police officers noticed that the
fraternity was selling alcohol without a license.
Police confiscated 16 kegs of beer and cited nine
fraternity members for operating an “open
saloon,” according to police reports.
The fraternity has since been expelled from the
University because of the incident and its
national office has revoked the fraternity’s char-
But police officers aren’t targeting parties spe-
cifically, Ward said.
Parties are one source of complaints, but loud
stereos and bands playing in houses are also a
source of a number of complaints, Ward said.
Overall, feedback about the change from
police officers and residents of the community
has been positive. Landlords have been especial-
ly pleased with the effects of the change, Ward
“Several landlords have contacted me and said
our changes have helped them with enforce-
ment,” he said.

Americans, Catholics want
new pope to liberalize policies
WASHINGTON — Most Americans want the
next pope to allow priests to marry and women
to join the priesthood, a major break from
church rules and the judgment of Pope John
Paul II, according to an Associated Press poll.
The pontiff was held in high regard by many
Americans, many suggesting that John Paul will
be remembered as one of the greatest popes.
“He was admired by people who disagreed so
consistently on his views,” John C. Green, a pro-
fessor at the University of Akron in Ohio, said.
The sex abuse scandal that has rocked the
church has left many Catholics and other
Americans convinced that the next pope must
do more about predatory clergy.

You’ve been putting up with it for a

toss it out.
✦ Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Today is
a 5. It’s not wise to put all your eggs in
one basket; it’s good to diversify. One
source of revenue is almost used up —
better start developing another.

You’re gaining confidence, and this

I had the pleasure of
traveling to Prague, Czech
Republic, this spring break.
Prague is a cosmopolitan
city of historic buildings,
legendary hockey teams
and the most Kentucky
Fried Chicken restaurants I
have ever seen in my life. It
has not always been so.
After the Allied defeat of the Nazis in what was
then Czechoslovakia in 1945, the American and
Soviet governments engaged in a battle of politi-
cized goodwill gestures, money and fear to win
over the locals.
Prague’s Museum of Communism details the
rise and fall of Marxism in Czechoslovakia, all
within half a floor of space next to a casino and
above a McDonald’s. The irony is evident as pic-
tures of rejoicing roulette players and Big Macs
flank Joseph Stalin, an icon of forced equality
whose antithesis was American avarice.
I toured the exhibition: a mockup of a
Czechoslovakian schoolroom complete with a
Russian lesson on the board; posters exhorting
factory workers to higher productivity; and videos
of the massive demonstrations in 1989 that took
place just outside the museum where I stood,
bringing Prague’s communist era to a close. Then
I went to find the men’s room.
To their great benefit, women do not know
what urinal cakes smell like. I will try to explain
here, and please endure my description for the
sake of the metaphor that follows.
If you took an Altoid mint the size of a hockey
puck, dunked it in chlorine bleach, and then uri-
nated on it, you could approximate the smell of
what is unfortunately called a urinal cake. I do not
know if Prague had this chemical technology before
1989, but the whiff I got in 2005 was overpowering.
Now, the metaphor: Human urine does not
carry a pleasant aroma, but urinal cakes do no
more than add a different, slightly toxic odor,
which itself is nauseating.
I stepped out of the bathroom hoping that I
would be able to keep my lunch down. Again, the
juxtaposition of McDonald’s and the casino next
to the socialist imagery I had
just seen was unavoidable.
The signs pointed in dif-
ferent directions, giving the
visitor a choice of venue:
Either a glance at the
gloomy past or immersion in
the glitzy present. The
Czech and Slovak masses
had made their own deci-
sion, and outside old men who might have been
members of the secret police in a former life
begged for money on the busy pedestrian mall
among all the shoppers and moneychangers. I’m
lovin’ it!
The past is often foul compared to a rosy-
smelling future. The Soviets foresaw a world of
abundance without poverty, but they stifled free-
dom in their drive to achieve that goal.
Capitalism, for its part, has the lamentable ten-
dency of amplifying individual desire to the detri-
ment of universal need. The American Dream is a
nightmare for many.
We should not be content to mask one putrid
smell with another until the fresh becomes rotten
and we start all over again. Flush the toilet and
think hard about the source of the problems and
possible remedies, and then think again about the
consequences of those remedies.
The Cold War period affected the American
psyche to the extent that the very word “commu-
nism” can still stir deep patriotic fear and rage.
The Soviet-Czechoslovakian propaganda that I
saw casts a similarly evil image of capitalism.
The truth is that Marxism, Leninism and
Stalinism — just like American democracy — is an
attempt to eradicate humanity’s stinky leavings,
but in the end it left the mess and created a new
stench. Americans are free to write cheeky opinion
columns, but many go to bed hungry each night.
There is an ideological and practical balance
somewhere between Wal-Mart and Stalin’s Five-
Year Plans, and both our children and their noses
will thank us if we work harder to find it.

Supreme Court ignored its own role,
let Schiavo die without true justice
“Equal Justice Under Law.” How ironic that
the Supreme Court, whose building boasts these
famous words, would deny Terri Schiavo her
constitutional right to life, her freedom of reli-
gion by not permitting her to be given last rites,
and allow her to be starved to death.
As she took her last breath — yes, she could
breathe on her own — Thursday morning, I was
reminded of my recent trip to Washington, D.C.,
to participate in the March for Life, where I wit-
nessed Terri’s parents asking the crowd for sup-
port in their fight. I was appalled that our gov-
ernment would allow this. I also find it quite sus-
picious that her husband, Michael Schiavo —
who for the record, already has a fiancée and
two children — stands to gain Terri’s inheritance
following her death.
It is ridiculous and disgraceful that a handful
of judges determined the fate of this woman’s
life. As it stands, there are absolutely no checks
and balances on the judicial system. When the
legislative and executive branches intervened, a
judge accused them of acting “in a manner at
odds with our Constitution.”
It seems to me that by denying Terri her basic
constitutional freedoms, our judicial system is
acting in a manner at odds with the Constitution.
Also look to our Pledge of Allegiance, which
concludes “with liberty and justice for all.”
Where was the justice for Terri and her family?

Ten Commandments don’t represent
the legal framework in United States
In Ray Wittlinger’s column “Ten
Commandments should unite, not divide
Americans.” he tells us that the presence of
these commandments near a government
institution is “offensive only if you let it be.”
Really? I didn’t know that we have a choice as
to what offends us.
Listen up homosexuals: Being called a “fag”
and experiencing discrimination are only offen-
sive if you let them be.
The bottom-line is that these religious dis-
plays are offensive to non-believers and to oth-
ers that do not identify with the Judeo-Christian
They are a source of alienation and a blatant
violation of the First Amendment.
While Wittlinger’s intentions seem to be sin-
cere, it is wishfully absurd and offensive to think
that, of all the moral codes available, we should
unite under the one that just so happens to be in
line with the majority’s religious preference and
that includes very few of “our country’s most
fundamental laws.”
In fact, only three of these 10 are actually part
of our laws.
In order for people of all creeds to unite, we
must do so under rules that revolve solely
around the good of humanity instead of keep-
ing days “holy” or worshiping the “correct”

On Easter Sunday, my fami-
ly and I spent the morning
with thousands of others in
Rome, at Mass in St. Peter’s
Square. My husband, Wayne,
noticed the red banner under
Pope John Paul’s apartment
Wayne said the pope would
probably give the final bless-
ing. He was right.
Although the pope’s deteriorating health pre-
vented him from reading the blessing, it was still
spiritually moving to see him in the window, mak-
ing the sign of the cross. The experience brought
tears to my eyes and uplifted the spirits of all those
around us. A group of school
children nearby started
chanting “Il Papa, Il Papa,”
Italian for “pope.”
I am teaching for the
School of Journalism in
Italy this semester, through

has been an incredible
experience made more spe-

witness Pope John Paul II’s
final public appearance.
We returned to St. Peter’s
Square on Wednesday,
March 30, because my
daughter had to count the
number of altars at St. Peter’s Basilica for her
social studies class back home. We saw the red
banner and the crowd gathered in the square. A
news photographer told us the pope was to
appear in a few minutes.
Once again, we heard John Paul II’s blessing
and saw him in the window. His appearance
sparked an energy and optimism that was almost
Catholics do not always agree with the pope
about issues and church poli-

Pope John Paul II spoke
several languages and crossed
cultural barriers with his message of peace, love
and understanding.
On Friday, my own language barrier prevented
me from understanding the breaking news about
the pope’s condition.
The television news reports were only in Italian
in Assisi, the city we were
visiting on the day of the
pope’s death.
This made it difficult for
me, a news junkie, to figure
out what was going on.
When I heard Pope John
Paul II had finally passed
away, the news came via
my cell phone, from my

Nearly a year has passed
since the Lawrence City
Commission extinguished
indoor public smoking.
While the ban’s effects on
business is still debated, several
Lawrence bar employees and
patrons are happy to be out of
the haze.
Nick Atchity said he had
smoked less since the ban went
into effect.
Despite the restriction, the
Overland Park junior said the
ban was a good idea.
“Business owners thought
it would hurt them, but peo-
ple are coming back,” he
Anne Carty, Lawrence grad-
uate student, said she was not
so sure the ban had affected
smoking habits.
Carty said she cut back on
smoking because of her own
health concerns, not the ban.
People adapt to the situa-
tion as needed, and bars
building smoking porches are
one of those adaptations,
Carty said.
“If people want to smoke,
they’ll change their venue so
they can,” she said.
Lucas Parde said he hadn’t
noticed any decrease in busi-
ness on the bar’s busiest days.
Parde, a bartender at Louise’s
Bar Downtown, 1009
Massachusetts, said he hadn’t
noticed any decreased smoking
from customers out front or on
the smoking porch.
Although he smokes more in
cities where it is allowed, Parde
said he cut back on his smok-
ing in Lawrence. He also said
he liked not smelling like
smoke after work.

Galindo announces transfer
It’s official. Alex Galindo will
not play for the Kansas
Jayhawks next season.
Kansas coach Bill Self
announced yesterday that the
freshman forward will transfer
from the University at the end of
the semester.
Galindo, a
Newark, N.J.,
native, said
there were no
u n f r i e n d l y
f e e l i n g s
between him-
self and the
Kansas bas-
ketball pro-
gram. He said
he would look at schools closer
to his family.
“I feel I need a change of
scenery to get closer to home,”
Galindo said.
NCAA rules will force
Galindo to sit out his sopho-
more season at his transfer uni-
versity. Although he said he did-
n’t know where he would trans-
fer, he said he would use next
season as an opportunity to
work on his game.
“I need a redshirt year to get
stronger and to develop my
game,” Galindo said. “At this
time my mind is still open to
where I will go, but hopefully it
will be resolved in the next few
The 6-foot-7 forward aver-
aged 4.3 points and 1.7
rebounds per game this season
in 10.4 minutes of play per
game. Galindo was plagued
with injuries early in the season.
He missed last summer with an
injured wrist and suffered a
groin injury early in the season.
The pulled groin sidelined him
from important pre- and early-
season workouts. The time out
hindered Galindo’s ability to
become familiar with the plays
and get comfortable in the sys-
tem, Self said.
“We enjoyed Alex this past
year,” Self said. “Losing his
summer to a broken wrist and
over a month of preseason
workouts due to a pulled groin,
certainly slowed his develop-
The highlights of Galindo’s
career came in back-to-back
games against Georgia Tech on
Jan. 1 and Texas A&M Jan. 5.
Against the Yellow Jackets,
Galindo hit a game-altering shot
in overtime to pull Kansas with-
in one. The Jayhawks went on
to win that game 70-68.
In Kansas’ 65-60 victory over
the Aggies he made the game
winning three-point shot with
less than a minute to play.
“I enjoyed my freshman
year,” Galindo said. “It had its
ups and downs, but overall it
was a learning experience. I
wish Kansas and its fans noth-
ing but the best.”
A true three-position player,
Galindo played much of the
season at the four position for
the Jayhawks. Due to the depth
at the guard position, Self said
Galindo’s best opportunity to
play was at the four.
Next year, Galindo would
have competed with incoming
freshmen Micah Downs and
Julian Wright for playing time.
Galindo’s exit opens a schol-
arship for the Jayhawks. Three
recruits — Mario Chalmers,
Micah Downs and Julian Wright
— and the addition of junior
college transfer Roderick
Stewart at the end of the fall
semester fill the scholarships
opened by seniors’ graduations.
Self continued to recruit play-
ers despite having a full roster.
DeAndre Thomas, a 6-foot-8,
270 pound senior forward from
Westinghouse High School in
Chicago, is expected to visit
Kansas this month.
Self announced yesterday
however, that he would offer the
scholarship to junior walk-on
Christian Moody, who started
26 games for the Jayhawks.
“With Alex’s departure, it
does allow us to provide
Christian Moody a scholarship
for the upcoming year, which he
richly deserves,” Self said.

Running up the track accolades
Jeremy Mims has had one of
the best seasons of any Kansas
Mims, in his fourth year at
Kansas, ran past Jim Ryun’s long-
standing 800-meter run record of
1:47.19 with a time 1:47.04,
which reset the Big 12 record of
1:45.88. In February’s Big 12
Championship his time of
1:49.46 was good for second
place. Mims ran 1:49.46. He then
finished seventh in the 800 at the
National Indoor Championships
with a time of 1:48.28.
But looking back at Mim’s
early high school track disap-
pointments, a record-breaking
college athletic career seemed
Mims, a senior, remembers
his early days in competition in
Iowa City.
“My freshman year I was the
worst runner of all time,” he
said. “I was so afraid of cross
country, I didn’t show up to
practice the first day. I was
slower than slow.”
But he finished faster and
faster as time wore on. He final-
ly beat two minutes in the 800
his junior year. He said his
pride in the race counted more
than his record time.
“That meant a lot because I did
it against one of my teammates
who talked way to much,” Mims
said. “He was mad. Not just
because I beat him, but I also
beat two minutes and he hadn’t.”
Mims started getting attention
from smaller state schools his
senior year, but he said he knew
much sooner of his potential.
“My junior year was when I
wanted to run at a college
level,” Mims said. “My times
were getting close to the same
times at some smaller colleges.”
Staying in Iowa wasn’t an
“After state, Nebraska contact-
ed me. I didn’t want to go to
Iowa, because it would be too
close to home,” Mims said. “It
was a big deal to get out of Iowa”.
After the state competition his
senior year, Mims and his
200x200x400x800-meter medley
team in their first attempt beat the
state record in the race. They were
invited to Raleigh, N.C., to com-
pete nationally in the same event.
They set the national record and
finished first in the sprint medley.
That’s when Kansas coach
Stanley Redwine called.
“It was between Kansas and
Nebraska. Kansas had great
facilities,” Mims said. “But it
was because of Redwine. I
knew he could help me on the

Jeremy Mims, a senior middle-distance runner specializing in the 800-meter race, looks forward to the indoor track season, which will be his
last at the University. Mims won first place in the Kansas Relays last year with a season-best time of 1:50.82. This year he broke the Big 12
Conference record — and his personal record — with a time of 1:47.04. He placed second at the Big 12 Championship and seventh at the
National Indoor Championships. The track and field team’s next meet is the Texas Relays April 6-9. The Kansas Relays will be held April 21-23 at
Memorial Stadium.
ST. LOUIS — Of course,
there was no way it was going to
be easy. North Carolina did it,
though, and now it’s time to
stop asking Roy Williams that
doggone question.
Sean May had 26 points, and
the Tar Heels didn’t allow a bas-
ket over the final, excruciating
2:30 last night to defeat Illinois
75-70, a win that finally gave
Williams, the 17-year coaching
veteran, the national champi-
onship that was missing from
his otherwise stellar resume.
“I’m speechless,” Williams
said. “I usually talk my rear end
off, but right now I’m speech-
Freshman Marvin Williams
had a tip-in with 1:26 left;
Raymond Felton made three
free throws down the stretch;
and the Tar Heels (33-4) won
their first title since 1993, back
when Dean Smith was coaching
and Williams was at Kansas, in
the middle of his Final Four
“He is the greatest coach,”
Felton said. “If he retired tomor-
row, I would vote for him for the
Hall of Fame. He told us he
would bring us a championship,
and we did it as a team.”
Led by May’s 10-for-11 shoot-
ing, Carolina took a 65-55 lead
with 8:51 left, and it looked like
Williams would win his 41st
tournament game, and first
championship, going away. But
Illinois (37-2) never quit.
Forward Jack Ingram hit a
pair of outside jumpers and Dee
Brown scored six points as part
of a 10-0 run that tied the game
at 65 with 5 1/2 minutes left to
set up a fantastic finish.
When it was over — after
Felton had made his last two
free throws, after May had cra-
dled his 10th and final rebound
— Williams took off his glasses
and started looking for people
to hug.
A few moments later, he was
crying, much like he has at the
end of every season — though
no ending has been as sweet as
this one.
“I’m just so happy for myself,
my family,” Williams said.

Balance key for Spartan success
State will take its gang of five over a
couple of blue-chip players any day.
After all, this season has proven the
Spartans can win in unconventional
ways — without All-Americans, with-
out dominant inside players, even
defeating the nation’s most estab-
lished women’s programs by rallying
from seemingly impossible deficits.
At Michigan State, it’s all about
“You see teams with one or two
All-Americans and that team loses,”
Kristin Haynie said. “That’s what
makes this team great. If someone
has a bad game, someone else can
step up.”
Adhering to coach Joanne P.
McCallie’s deep-rooted philosophy
is what has led the Spartans out of
their mediocre past and onto the
brink of their first national title.
Michigan State (33-3) faces Baylor
(32-3) tonight in a matchup of first-
time finalists.
As usual, the Spartans have
reached the title game with a slightly
different script.
While Baylor relies primarily on
its All-America tandem of Sophia
Young and Steffanie Blackmon,
Michigan State beats opponents
with balance.
Four starters average double fig-
ures although none scores more
than 15 points per game. Two other
players are scoring nearly eight
points per game. It’s Basketball 101
at East Lansing, Mich.
“We’re not a bunch of all-stars,”
center Kelli Roehrig said. “But we
have so many great players, I think
we just complement each other so
McCallie seemingly has all the
pieces in place.
Haynie is the fleet point guard
and the school’s career record-hold-
er for steals (341). She was named
most outstanding player of the
Kansas City Region and the Big Ten
tournament, and she averages 10.6
points and 6.8 rebounds.
Junior guard Lindsay Bowen is
Michigan State’s career leader with
224 3-pointers. She scores 13.6
points and delivered the outlet pass
Sunday that sealed the Spartans 68-
64 semifinal victory over Tennessee.
Forward Liz Shimek ranks 10th
in Spartans history in scoring, aver-
ages 15.0 points and 9.2 rebounds.
Roehrig provides inside power
and has teamed with Haynie to win
more games (91) than any other sen-
ior class. Roehrig averages 13.5
points and 7.3 rebounds, and scored
the go-ahead basket with 35 seconds
left against Tennessee.
While sophomore guard Victoria
Lucas-Perry is the fifth wheel, scor-
ing just 7.4 points, it was her seven
straight points that saved the
Spartans in their closing rally
against Tennessee.
“You can’t just focus on one or
two players because two or three
others will beat you,” Bowen said.
“That’s the beauty of having such a
balanced team.”
But in an era where individuality
is revered, success has helped
McCallie make simpler points.
After finishing ninth in the Big Ten
in each of her first two seasons at
Michigan State, the Spartans
improved to fourth in 2002-03 and
2003-04, then shared the regular-sea-
son title this season before winning
their first conference tournament.
Players believe the key to this
year’s tournament run began last
summer when the Spartans took a
team camping trip to Shimek’s
grandparents’ farm in northern
“During that 3 1/2-hour ride to
her farm, we bonded,” Haynie said.
“We had a great time, and I think
that’s what started the chemistry on
this team.”
When they returned, Michigan
State had a new philosophy.
“It put things into perspective and
showed us how lucky everyone is on
our team,” Roehrig said.
Opponents with better players and
stronger reputations also appreciated
Michigan State’s concept. Tennessee
coach Pat Summitt praised the
Spartans for their composure Sunday
night, and Baylor players know they
too will be facing a different kind of
opponent Tuesday.
“If you scout those players you
don’t leave a gym and go, wow, they
leap out of the gym,” Baylor coach
Kim Mulkey-Robertson said. “But
you leave a gym and go, I would like
to have two players like that on my
team. They know how to win.”
The Spartans couldn’t ask for any
better compliment.
“You see, in the guys’ games, a lot
of guys want to go one-on-one,”
Bowen said. “In girls’ games, it real-
ly is team ball — and this team is
willing to do whatever it takes to
Poll shows fans upset
with players’ salaries
WASHINGTON — For all the talk
about steroids, as baseball begins
its new season more Americans
think players’ high salaries are the
sport’s biggest problem, according
to an Associated Press-AOL poll
released yesterday.
The average major leaguer’s
salary was $2.3 million last year.
While that was a slight decline from
the previous year, it’s twice what it
was 10 years ago.
Salaries were named as base-
ball’s “biggest problem” by 33 per-
cent of those surveyed, followed by
steroids at 27 percent and the cost
of going to a game at 22 percent,
according to the telephone poll
done for the AP and AOL Sports by
Ipsos-Public Affairs.
“Baseball players definitely get
overpaid,” said Cynthia Walker, a
pharmacist from Seattle who sees a
link with steroid use. “It gives them
a competitive edge to be better and
they’re in better position to ask for
big salaries.”
Baseball has no cap on team
salaries and its owners don’t pool
money from local television rev-
“The economics of baseball are
the big problem,” said Fay Vincent,
former baseball commissioner.
“The big clubs make a lot of money
and the little clubs don’t.”
Seventy percent said they didn’t
think a player found to have used
steroids or other performance-
enhancing drugs should be elected
to the Hall of Fame.
About 40 percent of those sur-
veyed described themselves as
baseball fans, down from more
than six in 10 at the height of the
home run chase in 1998 between
Mark McGwire of the St. Louis
Cardinals and Sammy Sosa of the
Chicago Cubs.

“We Stand Behind
Our Work, and WE
2858 Four Wheel Dr.
been through for four years. They
took me for a heck of a ride.”
Luther Head led Illinois with 21
points. He had a wide-open look at a
three-point shot that would have tied the
game with 17 seconds left, but it bound-
ed off and coach Bruce Weber’s magical
ride with the Illini wound up one win
short of the real fairy tale ending he
hoped for.
His opponent, Williams, left Kansas to
take over the Tar Heels two years ago,
after the program Dean Smith built had
faltered and fallen to 8-20. Williams took
a ton of heat for leaving Kansas after los-
ing in the title game in 2003 — his fourth
close call at the Final Four.
He defended the move, saying coming
back to his alma mater had always been
his dream. Then, this week, he dealt with
a more familiar question: Did he need to
win a title to call his career a success?
He told the story of Smith insisting he
was no better a coach after he finally
won one in 1982, but Williams conceded
that answering that “same doggone
question” did get a little annoying at
He finally broke through in a terrific
game, the first meeting of the top two
teams in the final Associated Press poll
since 1975, when UCLA defeated
“For coach to be able to say that the
first team to get him a championship was
the 2005 team is an honor,” May said.
“He’ll win a few more before he’s done.”
After May made a short shot with
11:22 left in the first half for an 18-17
lead, Carolina never trailed again — but
this game never really got comfortable.
May was unstoppable for the first 12
minutes of the second half, scoring 16
points during that stretch and dishing
out two assists to help North Carolina
push its lead to as many as 15 and fight
off a number of Illinois rallies.
James Augustine, charged with stop-
ping the 6-foot-9 center, was in foul
trouble through most of it. Weber put
him back in to try to slow May down,
but oddly, it was when Augustine drew
his fifth foul, with 7 minutes left, that the
Illini finally caught up.
That Illinois could hang in there was
no surprise. This was the team that ral-
lied from 15 down with 4 minutes left
against Arizona in the regional to make
it to its first Final Four since 1989.
But the Illini could never take a lead.
And after Head hit a 3-pointer with 2:40
left, Deron Williams missed on an open
look, Felton stepped in front of a bad
pass by Head, then Head missed the
potential game-tying shot at the end. In
all, the Illini missed five three-point
shots down the stretch, part of a night in
which they shot 12-for-40 from long
range and just 38 percent overall.
Felton finished with 17 points and
seven assists, and Rashad McCants had
14 for the Tar Heels, all in the first half.
Deron Williams scored 17 and Brown
had 12 for the Illini, but they needed a
combined 39 shots to get there — and, in
the end, the 27-for-70 shooting night just
couldn’t be overcome.
Felton, McCants and Jawad Williams
each hit three-point shots during the
stretch. More significantly, though, was
the way the Tar Heels dominated on
Head squirmed open for a twisting
shot from point blank on the baseline,
but it missed. Roger Powell Jr. rebound-
ed but couldn’t get the ball to the rim —
rejected twice by North Carolina’s inside
In the end, the Tar Heels won the
matchup that was billed as Team vs.
Talent — the Tar Heels with the talent
and the Illini with the team. It turned out
Carolina really had both.
“A lot of people said we were just
talented, but not a team,” May said.
“But when times got tough, we banded
together and came through. We
showed we’re not just talented. We’re a

track as well as off it. I knew he
could help me as a person.”
Mims career has been turbu-
lent at times. He’s attributed
such to setting goals too high at
times. But in the midst of all the
meets in four years, one stands
out, he said.
“My race at regional finals
sophomore year,” Mims said.
“It was the first time I made
“At the time, knowing I was
going to go was the best thing I
ever felt,” he said. “All my work
paid off.”
As his last semester of track
eligibility winds down, Mims
said he would concentrate on
the present, not the future.
“I’m really focused on this
outdoor season. I’m getting
antsy, and I’m ready to race,”
Mims said. “Next year will take
care of itself.”
His senior year has taken on
a new meaning, he said. Much
more lenient than his early
years, this senior has settled
down. The movie buff, who
recently discovered “The
Incredibles,” spends most of his
off time with his girlfriend.
This senior middle distance
runner, once a junior varsity
underachiever, has bloomed
into one of the Jayhawks’ lead-
ers. As he competes in his last
outdoor season, he doesn’t
know where his path will lead
him. But one thing is sure: He’ll
get there fast.

The Sisters of St. Joseph
of Wichita
Imagine a life totally devoted to Christ. A
life where the rewards you seek are not of
this earth. Imagine shunning materialism,
realizing there’s so much more to life when
you follow in the footsteps of Jesus.
We are the sisters of St. Joseph. And it’s true,
our lives are radically different from the
world around us. For ours is a community
of vowed women committed to prayer,
spiritual growth, and serving others.
We invite you to deepen your relationship
with Jesus Christ and join us on our journey.
You may not be entirely certain. And with
the many distractions in today’s world, it’s
easy to get sidetracked. But if you listen to
your inner voice — if you listen to your
heart — you just might find that devoting
your life to God as a Sister is the radical
way you are being called to live.
Get this free CD-ROMfrom the
Sisters of St. Joseph to help you find
out if you’ve truly been called.

Kansas senior golfer Kevin
Ward led his team to a first place
finish at the Stevinson Ranch
Intercollegiate on March 22 and
a second place finish at the 59th
Western Intercollegiate on
March 29.
Last Friday, Ward received
some national
recogni t i on
for his contri-
bution, when
Golf World
m a g a z i n e
named him
the College
Player of the
The voting
for the award
took place during the Jayhawk’s
visit to Stevinson, Calif. Ward not
only won the Stevinson
Intercollegiate by six strokes over
Ben Kern from Kansas State, he
led Kansas to a 20-stroke victory
over Kansas State and Nebraska.
Ward played some of the best
golf of his career during the two-
day tournament, hitting a three-
round 8-under-par 208. He shot
a 4-under-par 68 in the opening
round, and went on to shoot a
career-best 8-under 64 in the
second round.
Ward’s second-round play was
flawless, as he made eight birdies
and no bogeys. Through 15
holes, Ward was eight under par,
and his score could have been
even lower if he had connected
on any of three makeable birdie
Even though Ward received
the national honor last week, he
has remained humble.
“This award is really going to
help with my confidence and
also the team’s confidence,”
Ward said. “The team deserves
this award as much as I do
because they really helped my
cause — winning by 20 strokes.
I give them all the credit.”
Ward has been a team leader
for the Jayhawks the past two
Coach Ross Randall nomi-
nated Kevin Ward for the honor
after his play at Stevinson.
“He really has been our
leader all year,” Randall said.
“He is everything you want from
a player, whether it’s in the work
out room, at practice or on the
golf course.”
During his career at Kansas,
Ward has won three individual
tournament titles, and has record-
ed 10 top-10 finishes. Ward
entered the 2004-2005 golf season
with a 75.59 career stroke aver-
age. All season long he has been
improving upon that number. He
has the lowest season-stoke aver-
age of his career: 71.37.
With a national player of the
week award under his belt,
Ward has all the confidence he
needs to finish the season.
“I’m excited about getting this
award,” Ward said. “But I’m
even more excited about playing
and finishing the season out.”
Kevin Ward and the
Jayhawks will head to Holly
Springs, N.C., to play in the
Courtyard by Marriot
Intercollegiate on April 8.

Royals destroyed
at Tigers’ opener
DETROIT — Dmitri Young got
to the top step of the dugout,
pivoted and tipped his helmet
to a roaring crowd after becom-
ing just the third player to hit
three homers on opening day.
“I’ve had a curtain call, but
nothing like that,” Young said.
“That was incredible.”
Young went 4-for-4 and
matched a career high with five
RBI, and Jeremy Bonderman
won as the youngest opening-
day starter since 1986 to lead the
Detroit Tigers over the Kansas
City Royals 11-2 yesterday.
Two years after losing an AL-
record 119 games, the Tigers
backed up what Young said last
month when he boldly pro-
claimed: “We’re the Tigers —
not the kittens.” It was, howev-
er, just the first of 162 games,
and the victory came against a
team expected to be among
baseball’s worst.
Detroit’s performance creat-
ed a frenzied atmosphere
before a Comerica Park-record
crowd of 44,105 on a sunny
day with temperatures in the
“I don’t know if I could’ve
written a better script,” Tigers
manager Alan Trammell said.
Young’s home run in the sec-
ond inning put Detroit ahead 1-
0. He hit a two-run homer in
the third for a 5-0 lead and
added another two-run shot in
the eighth. The designated hit-
ter also had a single and was
hit by a pitch.
“That was a great day,”
Kansas City manager Tony Pena
said. “Good for him. Bad for us.”
Toronto’s George Bell hit
three homers against the
Royals on opening day in 1988
and Tuffy Rhodes of the
Chicago Cubs had three against
the New York Mets in 1994.
Those two games also were
played on April 4.
