The sTudenT vOice since 1904

Students from New Orleans
worried for friends and family yes-
terday as Hurricane Katrina rolled
toward their hometown with wind
speeds up to 175 mph that could
bring a 28-foot storm surge, ac-
cording to news reports. A storm
surge is the rise in sea level that oc-
curs during a large storm.
The mayor of New Orleans
evacuated the below-sea-level
city yesterday in anticipation of
the Category 5 hurricane hitting
early this morning.
Arturo Febry, New Orleans
junior, was concerned for the
safety of his family. His mother
and grandmother evacuated
the city yesterday, he said. His
father, a doctor, stayed behind
to care for injured residents.
“It’s hard because I can’t be
home with them,” Febry said.
“It’s always scary when you
hear about these hurricanes, es-
pecially because any hurricane
2 or above, if it hits the Missis-
sippi, can food the city.”
DeMarco Smith, New Or-
leans sophomore, said his rela-
tives boarded up their houses
and drove to Houston, while
some of his friends joined the
thousands of people trying to
get inside the Louisiana Super-
dome for shelter.
The 70,000-seat Superdo-
me, home of the New Orleans
Saints, is one of 10 emergency
shelters the city has designated
for residents who don’t have the
means to leave the city.
“They seemed pretty calm,”
Smith said. “It’s just another
hurricane, but this one’s a little
more damaging. They were just
in a hurry to get there.”
The National Weather Ser-
vice upgraded Hurricane Ka-
trina to Category 5 yesterday as
it crossed the Gulf of Mexico,
meaning its wind speeds ex-
ceeded 155 mph. Only three
documented Category 5 hurri-
canes have touched land in the
United States, the latest being
Hurricane Andrew in 1992.
The National Hurricane Cen-
ter called the hurricane “poten-
tially catastrophic” and issued
a hurricane warning at 1 p.m.
yesterday for New Orleans and
the rest of the Gulf Coast, mean-
ing the hurricane was expected
reach land within 24 hours.
Nathaniel Brunsell, assistant
professor of geography, said New
Orleans was an especially vul-
nerable city because it sits an av-
erage of six feet below sea level.
“If we’re talking 12 feet, 15
feet of water coming in, it could
potentially food the entire city,”
Brunsell said.

More than
24,000 football

sold for this
year, less than
a week before
kick-off of the
2005 season
against Florida

associate athletics director
for external affairs.
Marchiony said the increase
in ticket sales was due to three
reasons; excitement about this
year’s football team, taking spe-
cial care to give benefcial seat-
ing to long-time season ticket
holders and the select-a-seat
process that was implemented
for all season ticket holders in
football, and will be applied to
basketball as well, starting in
“We want to sell as many
tickets as possible,” Marchio-
ny said. “Our goal is to sell out

of selling out Memorial Sta-

The average home attendance

since the 2002 season.
In 2004, the average home at-
tendance was 41,066, the high-
est since the 1996 season, which
averaged 42,100.
In an effort to keep atten-
dance growing, the corpora-
tion plastered its campaign
for this season, “Where will
you be on game day?” on bill-
boards, posters and in televi-
sion and radio commercials
across the state.
The department also distrib-
uted numerous yard signs to
business in the Lawrence and
surrounding areas for customers
to display at home.
“Last year and this year, we
worked hard to market in Law-
rence, Kansas City, Topeka and
Wichita,” Marchiony said.
Ronnie Escobar, Topeka
resident, is one person who
bought tickets for the frst time
this season.
Escobar said he and his
family decided to buy season
tickets because he was no
longer a football usher and
he wanted to continue to be
a part of the atmosphere at
the games. He ushered for 35

Kansas basketball player Ro-
drick Stewart was injured in one
of a series of fghts that broke out
at Abe and Jake’s Landing, 8 E.
6th St., early yesterday morning.
Student athletes were in-
volved in breaking up the fghts,
Tyler Torneden, Abe and Jake’s
manager, said.
Paramedics responded to a
separate medical incident that
occurred at the bar.
The bar, which often admits
only people age 21 and over, al-
lowed ages 18 and over Saturday
“There were multiple fghts”
about 1:30 a.m., a Lawrence po-
lice offcer said. “We have one
injured and being checked out
at the hospital. We had an indi-
vidual fall from the railing, ap-
parently, and he’s injured and at
the hospital.”
Kansas men’s basketball assis-
tant coach Kurtis Townsend went
to Lawrence Memorial Hospital
because of an involved athlete.
“I know obviously something
happened with Rod,” Townsend
said in reference to sopho-
more guard Rodrick Stewart. “I
wasn’t there. I just got the call
and came down here.”
Townsend was joined at the
hospital by Aaron Miles, for-
mer Kansas guard, and Moulaye
Niang, a former basketball play-
er and current student assistant.
It was previously reported that
sophomore guard Russell Rob-
inson was at the hospital, but he
was not.
Torneden said another indi-
vidual fell from heights near the
entrance of the bar.
The individual “was removed
from the bar; he was intoxicat-
ed,” he said. “He came down
and it looks as if he tried to
sneak into the back door, lost
his balance, rolled down, fell off
and hit his head.”
In the frst of two statements
released yesterday through me-
dia relations director Chris
Theisen, Kansas men’s basket-
ball coach Bill Self said he was
“still in a fact-gathering stage.”
In a later statement, Bill
Self said Stewart was hit in the
head with a blunt object when
he was attempting to leave the
“All reports we have received
indicate Rodrick had no in-
volvement in the altercation
other than him being hit over
the head while going up the
stairs,” Self said.
According to Self, Rodrick re-
ceived four staples at the hospital
and was feeling fne yesterday.

strous Hurricane Katrina bar-
reled toward New Orleans on
Sunday with 160-mph wind and
a threat of a 28-foot storm surge,
forcing a mandatory evacuation
of the below-sea-level city and
prayers for those who remained
to face a doomsday scenario.
“Have God on your side,
defnitely have God on your
side,” Nancy Noble said as she
sat with her puppy and three
friends in six lanes of one-way

Katrina intensifed into a Cat-
egory 5 giant over the warm wa-
ter of the Gulf of Mexico, reach-
ing top winds of 175 mph before
weakening slightly on a path to
hit New Orleans around sunrise
Monday. That would make it the
city’s frst direct hit in 40 years
and the most powerful storm
ever to slam the city.
Forecasters warned that Mis-
sissippi and Alabama were also
in danger because Katrina was
such a big storm — with hurri-
cane-force winds extending up
to 105 miles from the center. In
addition to the winds, the storm

burglaries and one hit-and-
run accident last week in lot

The burglaries involved
more than $1,000 in damage

KU students’ vehicles. Both
occurred Aug. 23 between 2
p.m. and 5:25 p.m.
The KU Public Safety Of-
fce and Student Senate have
been working to increase safe-
ty on campus.
The offce and one of the
students whose car was bur-
glarized said security cameras
would help curb theft and
criminal damage.
Emily Putbrese, Grand
Forks, N.D., senior, said either
police should patrol the area
more often or more cameras
would be needed in parking
lots. Putbrese reported $253
in valuables stolen and $300
in window damage.
“It was all of my stuff. I
had no form of money for like
three days,” Putbrese said.
The accident where an
unidentifed vehicle struck the
front bumper of a Mazda MX-
6 occurred Aug. 24 sometime
between 7:45 p.m. and 9:45
Chief Ralph Oliver of the
KU Public Safety Offce said
there were no plans to install
cameras in lot 90 because of
a limited budget. But he said
he thought there should be a
camera in every lot.
“We can’t afford to put all
cameras in at one time,” he
said. “If cameras were posi-
tioned in every parking lot, it
would have cost well over $1
million,” Oliver said.
The offce placed emphasis
to install cameras in residence
hall parking lots because
crimes against people take pri-
ority over property theft and
damage, Oliver said.
Most of the cameras cover
parking lots, Oliver said.
The installation of addi-
tional cameras also would
not be on the agenda when
the Student Senate’s Cam-
pus Safety Advisory Board
meets for the frst time next
week, said Jason Boots,
board member and Plano,
Texas, senior.
Instead of allocating
funding for additional cam-
eras, Student Senate plans
to increase funding for the

of its $90,000 budget, Boots
said. Jaywalk is a service for

Aug. 29, 1883 – KU chancellor resigns
Chancellor James Marvin left the University of Kansas after a “series of con-
troversies.” The Kansas Board of Regents accepted his resignation and soon the
University chose Joshua Lippincott to replace Marvin as chancellor.
According to the KU History Project’s Web site, one of the controversies arose
when Marvin, a former Methodist minister, “engineered” the removal of a profes-
sor who had supported the campus visit of an outspoken agnostic Robert Inger-
The Hiawatha Messenger reported in 1883 that the chancellor had resigned “on
account of some difficulty he had with certain members of the Board of Regents.”
The newspaper did not provide further elaboration.
The newspaper articles during that time overwhelmingly supported the chancel-
lor over the board. One article, written July 5, condemned, “these snarling criti-
cisms, this mean opposition and these political contentions,” that apparently cost
the University’s fourth chancellor his position. Other articles praised him as a good
man and a fine chancellor during his nine years of service.
During his time at the University, Marvin managed to extract state funding for
what would become Old Fraser Hall, despite a straitened budget. The university
also established more electives for students, although specific majors and minors
would not appear until 1887.
Lippincott replaced Marvin as chancellor from 1883 to 1889. Marvin remained in
Lawrence and was later appointed the first superintendent of the Haskell Industrial
Indian School in 1901.
Aug. 31, 1895 – KU faculty salaries too high?
J. E. Challinor, then the accountant of the state of Kansas, accused the University
of overpaying its faculty. He said the University was hoping to compete nationally
with Harvard and Yale by raising salaries, which at that time were less than $1,500
a year.
The Kansas University Weekly, at the time, responded with a blistering commen-
tary about Challinor’s “airy assertions” on Sept. 6, 1895: “He chooses to sneer at
the regents and chancellor for ‘competing against Harvard and Yale,’ but he has not
taken the trouble to learn that those institutions expend four or five times as much
money for each student as does our own University.”
To give some context, Kansas had suffered from a financial panic in 1893. In
his book “The University of Kansas: A History,” Clifford Griffin wrote that a long
recession followed, and in 1897, the University did reduced all of its employees’
Sept. 1, 1914 – Ralph H. Major comes to the University
If you suffer from diabetes or know someone who does, you could owe more to
Ralph H. Major than you realize.
Major joined the University’s 9-year-old School of Medicine as chairman and pro-
fessor of the department of pathology.
As professor and chairman of the department of internal medicine nine years
later, Major initiated the first clinical trials of injecting insulin into diabetic patients
who lived in the Kansas City area. The first diabetic treated had been in a terminal
coma on Jan. 13, 1923. He revived and enjoyed a return to normal blood-sugar lev-
els less than four days later.
Cheered by the results, Major wrote a paper called “The Treatment of Diabe-
tes Mellitus with Insulin.” It became part of the Journal of the American Medical
Association’s first report concerning insulin.
All this might never have happened if Major had not left San Francisco for Kansas
City, a move that some of his contemporaries considered “crazy.” While he was a
pathology instructor at Stanford University, he received a letter from Mervin Sudler,
then associate dean of the KU School of Medicine. Sudler offered him a position
not only as a full professor, but also as the chairman of the pathology department.
Major accepted the position, although he would later describe his new headquar-
ters at the University as “really depressing.” In his words, a profusion of “broken
test tubes, dried-up specimens [and] waste paper” littered the building along with
“rubbish which had accumulated on the floor in heaps.” For a time, Major and his
student assistant acted as interim custodians for the pathology department.
Major’s other accomplishments were by no means minor. During his more than
50 years at the University, Major wrote 10 books and contributed to the school’s
growing reputation. Before he arrived at the University, he graduated from William
Jewell College in Liberty, Mo., at age 17 with a liberal arts degree. He also played
the violin and piano, studied linguistics and mastered five foreign languages: Ger-
man, Greek, Latin, Spanish and French.

Three classes this semester
have started using online versions
of textbooks as a cheaper alterna-
tive to traditional textbooks. Stu-
dents have mixed reactions about
the online versions’ value.
Principles of Macroeconom-
ics, Principles of Microeconomics
and Principles of Physical Geog-
raphy now use a digital textbook,
although students can still buy the
regular textbook. Students pur-
chase an online registration num-
ber and then are able to download
the digital version onto their com-
Bill Madl, Jayhawk Bookstore
textbook manager, said not pur-
chasing the textbook saves about
one-third of textbook costs. Jay-
hawk Bookstore, 1420 Crescent
Road, sells a bundle with the
textbook and registration for the
online version for macro- and mi-
croeconomics for $96, while the
online version costs $68 by itself.
For geography, the prices are
$105 for the physical book and
$52 for the online version.
Madl said some students who
purchased the online version
came back to buy the physical
textbook. Students like the fex-
ibility of having the traditional
book, Madl said. Students can
fip through the book, make
notes, highlight and don’t need
to be at a computer to read the
Neal Becker, assistant profes-
sor of economics, is using the
online text for the frst time for
his macroeconomics class. He
said the online text can be in-
convenient because it has to be
downloaded to a computer.
Becker said publishers can use
the online versions as a barrier
to the used textbook market, be-
cause students can’t sell back the
digital book. The publisher can
make students buy new registra-
tion numbers each semester.
An advantage is the registra-
tion number also gives student
access to online practice ex-
ercises and homework assign-
ments, which are automatically
graded, Becker said.
Students get immediate feed-
back on practice problems, and
teaching assistants don’t need
to grade the online assignments,
Becker said.
“It gives us a lot of fexibility,”
Becker said.
Madl said publishers would
produce more online versions
as technology improves. But
students have mixed opinions
about the online versions’ use-
Steven Griswold, Forsyth,
Ill., freshman, bought the text-
book along with the online
version. He said he wanted the
book because he didn’t have
his own computer. Even though
buying the text was more costly,
he said having the actual book
was worth it.
Ryan Kusmin, Leawood ju-
nior, bought both the print ver-
sion and the online registration
for his microeconomics class.
Kusmin said he bought his
textbook at, an
online bookstore, but he had to
buy the online registration later.
He said he spent $10 more than
if he had purchased the bundle.
Cooper Martin, Olathe senior,
bought only the online version.
He said the price was the reason
he didn’t buy the book.
“The cheapest way to do it is
all online,” Martin said. “Buy-
ing the book would be a waste
of money.”

A handful of professors are
encouraging their students to
purchase books from indepen-
dent bookstores instead of larg-
er, more well-known textbook
Instead of shopping at the
KU Bookstores in the Kansas
Union or another store that
relies primarily on textbook
sales, students are checking in
to smaller shops in order to fnd
their books.
Jon Swindell, professor of
design, ordered books through
Raven Bookstore, 8 E. 7th St.
He said he enjoyed sending his
students to the more intimate
environment Raven provided.
“It’s one way for me to get
my students into an environ-
ment that I think is more
about artful conversations
and gets them into an envi-
ronment with real literature
as opposed to sending them
to a more commercial venue,”
Swindell said.
Sarah Mueting, Lenexa ju-
nior, is taking one of Lecturer
Chris White’s Latin American
history classes this semester.
White used Raven to order
some of his books. Mueting
said she agreed with the use
of local bookstores, but said
there were some downsides.
Some of the books she need-
ed were unavailable, howev-
er, because the store sold out
“They should overorder if
they do local bookstores be-
cause they don’t have the same
ability to reorder as quickly,”
Mueting said.
Also challenging is selling
books back at the end of the
semester. Because the larger
bookstores don’t stock the
books, they don’t purchase
them back at the end of the
year. The independent book-
stores don’t typically buy books
back either.
Pat Kehdes, co-owner of Ra-
ven, said she appreciated pro-
fessors helping students under-
stand it made a difference where
their money went.
Kehdes also noted that students
who venture downtown to buy
books would see what else Law-
rence’s downtown had to offer.
“It does bring students down-
town who would only come to get
a pizza or a beer,” Kehdes said.
Local bookstores also appre-
ciated the extra business gener-
ated because students provide
a sale they may otherwise not
have, Kehdes said.
Shannon Jones, manager
of The Dusty Bookshelf, 708
Massachusetts St., said the
store did not order books spe-
cifically for professors. Often
though, professors often refer
students to The Dusty Book-
shelf in order to find texts,
especially for western civiliza-
tion or English courses, Jones
said. The Dusty Bookshelf is
primarily a used bookstore,
and Jones thought there were
enough venues offering text-
books already.
“The market is pretty saturat-
ed for that. It’s a space issue. We
already have books overfowing
onto the foor,” Jones said.

assaulting a minor has given
birth to their daughter, and the
man said he plans to plead not

The girl became pregnant

New members of the greek
community gave up their Sat-
urday afternoon to learn more
about their organization and to
get acquainted with members
outside their chapter.
Fraternity and sorority mem-
bers gathered in the Kansas
Union Ballroom to take part in
the annual lessons of “Greek
Life 101.” The meeting provid-
ed an overview of greek life and
stressed the importance of the
new members’ role, said Lau-
ren Harjung, Leawood junior
and vice president for scholar-
ship and educational program-
ming for the Panhellenic Asso-
“Members can understand
that they are a part of something
larger than just their own chap-
ter,” Harjung said. “They are
very much involved in the entire
greek community.”
Current members were in
attendance to talk about the
standards and goals set by the
community. Members highlight-
ed the four pillars of the greek
community: leadership, service,
scholarship and brotherhood
and sisterhood. Members also
provided ways for new members
to get involved in the commu-
Each of the 32 fraternities and
sororities had at least one repre-
sentative present at the event.
For the new members that en-
tered their frst year of college,
the session was especially valu-
able as all the new members in
attendance got acquainted.
The transition from high
school to college can be tough,
said Harjung. But building rela-
tionships outside of their chap-
ters helps them make the transi-
tion that much easier.
“I think it’s benefcial to get
introduced to as many people
as you can in a very constructive
way,” Harjung said.
Brad Stephenson, Leawood
freshman and member of Sigma
Phi Epsilon, 1645 Tennessee St.,
said the event was a productive
way to gain a better understand-
ing of other chapters as well as
meeting other people.
Having all the new members
together was also a beneft for
current members who helped
facilitate the event.
The program was a way to
get to meet new faces and teach
them the lessons of the greek
organization, said Corey Bruce,
Leawood junior and member of
Phi Kappa Psi, 1602 W. 15th St.
The group also received ad-
vice from guest speaker, Lori
Hart Ebert, who is the director
of alcohol education for Pi Kap-
pa Phi, 1537 Tennessee St.
She spoke about how mem-
bers are the ones who decide
what their experience will be
like and how they can get the
most out of their involvement in
the organization.
“Make the right choices in this
organization and they will expe-
rience great things,” she said.

“Even well-built structures will

By evening, the frst squalls,
driving rains and lightning be-
gan hitting New Orleans. A grim
Mayor C. Ray Nagin earlier or-
dered the mandatory evacuation
for his city of 485,000 people,
conceding Katrina’s storm surge
pushing up the Mississippi River
would swamp the city’s system
of levees, fooding the bowl-
shaped city and causing poten-
tially months of misery.
“We are facing a storm that
most of us have long feared,”
he said. “This is a once-in-a-life-
time event.”
Conceding that as many as
100,000 inner-city residents
didn’t have the means to leave
and an untold number of tour-
ists were stranded by the closing
of the airport, the city arranged
buses to take people to 10 shel-
ters, including the Superdome.
Nagin also dispatched police
and frefghters to rouse people
with sirens and bullhorns, and
gave them the authority to com-
mandeer vehicles.
For years, forecasters have
warned of the nightmare food-
ing a big storm could bring to
New Orleans, a bowl-shaped
city bounded by the half-mile-
wide Mississippi River and mas-
sive Lake Pontchartrain. As
much as 10 feet below sea level
in spots, the city is at the mercy
of a network of levees, canals
and pumps to keep dry.
Scientists predicted Katrina
could easily overtake that levee
system, swamping the city un-
der a 30-feet cesspool of toxic
chemicals, human waste and
even coffns.
“All indications are that this
is absolutely worst-case scenar-
io,” Ivor van Heerden, deputy
director of the Louisiana State
University Hurricane Center,
said Sunday afternoon.
Jefferson Parish President
Aaron Broussard said some who
have ridden out previous storms
in the New Orleans area may
not be so lucky this time.
“I’m expecting that some
people who are die-hards will
die hard,” he said.
Katrina was a Category 1 storm
with 80-mph wind when it hit
South Florida with a soggy punch
Thursday that fooded neighbor-
hoods and left nine people dead.
It reformed rapidly as it moved out
over the warm waters of the Gulf
By 8 p.m. EDT, Katrina’s eye
was about 130 miles south-south-
east of the mouth of the Missis-
sippi River. The storm was moving
toward the northwest at nearly 11
mph and was expected to turn to-
ward the north. A hurricane warn-
ing was in effect for the north-cen-
tral Gulf Coast from Morgan City,
La., to the Alabama-Florida line.
Despite the dire predictions, a
group of residents in a poor neigh-
borhood of central New Orleans
sat on a porch with no car, no way

BAGHDAD, Iraq — Iraqi ne-
gotiators fnished the new con-
stitution yesterday and referred
it to the voters but without the
endorsement of Sunni Arabs, a
major setback for the U.S. strat-
egy to lure Sunnis away from the
insurgency and hasten the day
U.S. troops can go home.
The absence of Sunni Arab
endorsement, after more than
two months of intensive nego-
tiations, raised fears of more
violence and set the stage for a
bitter political fght ahead of an
Oct. 15 nationwide referendum
on the document.
A political battle along reli-
gious and ethnic lines threat-
ened to sharpen communal di-
visions at a time when relations
among Shiites, Sunni Arabs and
Kurds appear to be worsening.
Sunni negotiators delivered
their rejection shortly after the
draft was submitted to parlia-
ment. They branded the fnal
version as “illegitimate” and
asked the Arab League, United
Nations and “international or-
ganizations” to intervene.
Intervention is unlikely, how-
ever, and no further amend-
ments to the draft are possible
under the law, said a legal expert
on the drafting committee, Hus-
sein Addab.
“I think if this constitution
passes as it is, it will worsen every-
thing in the country,” said Saleh
al-Mutlaq, a Sunni negotiator.

SMYRNA, Tenn. — Members
of a church say God is punishing
American soldiers for defending
a country that harbors gays, and
they brought their anti-gay mes-
sage to the funerals Saturday of
two Tennessee soldiers killed in
The church members were
met with scorn from local resi-
dents. They chased the church
members’ cars down a highway,
waving fags and screaming
“God bless America.”
“My husband is over there, so
I’m here to show my support,”
41-year-old Connie Ditmore
said as she waved an American
fag and as tears came to her
eyes. “To do this at a funeral
is disrespectful of a family, no
matter what your beliefs are.”
The Rev. Fred Phelps, found-
er of Westboro Baptist Church,
in Topeka, contends that Amer-
ican soldiers are being killed in
Iraq as vengeance from God for
protecting a country that har-
bors gays. The church, which
is not affliated with a larger de-
nomination, is made up mostly
of Phelps’ children, grandchil-
dren and in-laws.
The church members carried
signs and shouted things such
as “God hates fags” and “God
hates you.”
About 10 church members
protested near Smyrna United
Methodist Church and nearly
20 stood outside the National
Guard Armory in Ashland City.
Members have demonstrated at
other soldier funerals across the
The funerals were for Staff
Sgt. Asbury Fred Hawn II, 35,
in Smyrna and Spc. Gary Reese
Jr., 22, in Ashland City. Both
were members of the Tennessee
National Guard.
Hundreds of Smyrna and
Ashland City residents and
families of other soldiers turned
out at both sites to counter the
message the Westboro Baptist
members brought.
So many counterdemonstra-
tors were gathered in Ashland
City that police, sheriff’s depu-
ties and state troopers were
brought in to control traffc and
protect the protesters.
The church members held
protesting permits, and coun-
terprotesters in Smyrna turned
their backs to Westboro Baptist
members until time expired on
the protest permits.
“If they were protesting the
government, I might even join
them,” Danny Cotton, 56, said
amid cries of “get out of our
town” and “get out of our coun-
“But for them to come during
the worst time for this family
— it’s just wrong.”
K-State receives gift
from teachers
MANHATTAN — Kansas State
University has received a gift of
more than $1.7 million from the
estates of two former teachers,
a brother and sister who were
graduates of the school.
The bequests by Lillian J.
Brychta, who died in 1992, and
Edwin G. Brychta, who died in
2004, were announced last week.
They both graduated from
Kansas State in 1931.
Part of the gift, $1 million, will
endow a faculty chair in the Col-
lege of Arts and Sciences.
The remaining $736,000 will
be used for scholarships.
“It’s a signifcant gift and
a great gift to K-State from a
great family,” said Pat Bosco,
the university’s associate vice
president for institutional ad-
vancement. “It responds to our
greatest need at the university
— recognizing outstanding
high school students who want
to join the K-State family.”

Minority rights fan pans ban
t good to go
tRinse, pRatheR, Repeat
To New Yorkers: nothing’s the matter with Kansas
I want to tell you about a
friend of mine. His name is
Timothy. Tim attends Louisi-
ana State University in Baton
Rouge. He’s an engineering
student and loves to tell peo-
ple that the “Timmy!” gag on
South Park is based on him.
Tim’s a huge fan of football
and the past few years have
been pretty kind to him and
his Tigers, but the only thing
Tim ever wants to talk about
is Florida State. You see, Tim
is a member of the Seminole
tribe from which FSU’s mas-
cot takes its name.
By now, I am sure that ev-
eryone is somewhat familiar
with the NCAA’s recent ban
on the use of Indian mascots
by universities. Advocates of
minority and multicultural
rights have long sought ac-
tion that would prevent the
use of mascots the NCAA
deems “hostile” or “abusive,”
and the NCAA has received
much praise for its actions
along with the expected criti-
Tragedy struck last week.
On Wednesday, the NCAA
overturned its ban on Flori-
da State’s mascot, reasoning
that members of the Seminole
tribe had a working relation-
ship with the university.
Of course, FSU president
T.K. Wetherell also threat-
ened a lawsuit if the ban
was not overturned. Let me
repeat the important part of
that sentence: the ban was
dropped because the univer-
sity threatened to sue.
Is this what our nation has
come to? We’ll appease all
those we can, as long as we
don’t get sued? The NCAA’s
overturning of its own ban is
The NCAA has been quick
to emphasize that the ban
was lifted because of FSU’s
working relationship with
the Seminole tribe. This is
ludicrous. The United States
of America has a “working”
relationship with North Ko-
rea, so should we simply stop
paying any attention to Kim
Il Jong’s increasingly frighten-
ing actions? Of course not.
Proponents of Florida
State’s right to use the Semi-
nole as a mascot have also
jumped on this bandwagon.
I seriously doubt, however,
that any of these proponents
have spoken with anyone as-
sociated with the Seminoles,
or that they could even tell
you one legitimate thing
about the tribe.
After conversing with Tim,
I can say that this is not a uni-
versally popular move within
the tribe.
Take a step back and think
about this issue. It makes
sense that Seminoles would
be appalled by this action.
Most college mascots are
animals, both real and mythi-
cal. The largest exception to
this rule is the use of Indian
mascots. These people are es-
sentially being equated with
animals. How would you feel
if someone told you that you
were no different from a tiger
or a bulldog or a wolverine?
Another argument that sup-
porters of Indian mascots use
is the idea of historic context.
The Seminole tribe is located
in Florida, and thus it is logi-
cal to pay homage to them
as mascots. I would have no
problem with this argument
if it was universally followed.
As soon as the University of
Alabama-Birmingham adopts
“the Klan” as its mascot, I’ll
acquiesce to this argument’s
In my mind, there is no
difference between the FSU
Seminoles and the UAB Klan.
Many African-Americans
have been killed in Alabama,
one of the most horrifying
examples being the church
bombing in Birmingham a
few decades ago. What better
way to preserve the memory
of these unfortunate victims
than by the renaming of a
state university’s mascot?
Once again, this is ludi-
crous. I’d like to state in writ-
ing that I would never support
such a plan as I have just lain
out, and for the same reasons
cannot support any school’s
use of an Indian mascot.
I realize that my relation-
ship with individuals such
as Tim makes me more sen-
sitive to this issue. Nonethe-
less, this is an issue of which
everyone should make them-
selves aware.
The NCAA’s reversal of
their ban is quite possibly
this country’s most tragic di-
saster since 9/11. Not only is
this an issue that has a large
emotional and psychological
impact on members of the
Seminole nation, but it also
affects our nation as a whole.
Most of us are at least
vaguely aware of the atroci-
ties the American government
has historically committed
against Native Americans; to
this day it remains the poor-
est ethnic group in the coun-
try, by a significant margin.
Allowing universities such
as Florida State to continue
their offensive use of Indian
mascots is outrageous.
By repealing its ban, the
NCAA has spit in the face
of the Seminole nation, the
larger community of Native
Americans, and the country
as a whole.

Dear Editor:
As an expression of contempt
for opponents of “Native Amer-
ican mascots,” Sara Garlick’s
Aug. 19 column succeeds. As
an argument, the column fails.
Garlick doesn’t prove what
her title claims, “Ban criteria
largely fawed,” because she
gives no information about
those criteria other than quot-
ing the words “hostile” and
“abusive.” Those words de-
scribe Garlick’s tone: the policy
is “a waste of time for pretty
much everyone involved...more
important stories are out there.”
We don’t learn what Garlick’s
criteria for importance are, or
how she earned the credibility
to speak for so many people.
Garlick uses a “slippery
slope” approach, which keeps
her from having to refute the
ban criteria she didn’t provide
in the frst place. If Garlick
wants people to agree that elim-
inating Native American mas-
cots leads inevitably to results
she describes, she must provide
evidence. Instead, she spins ab-
surd scenarios to trivialize the
NCAA policy.
Garlick’s conclusion is not
just unsupported, it is laugh-
able. She claims that schools
with Native American mascots
do “tribes” a favor by keep-
ing their traditions alive for
students who wouldn’t have
known of the tribes’ existence
without a “liaison” service.
Because this issue is such a
time waster, perhaps Garlick
should investigate the “impor-
tant story” of why some people
only care about “Indians” in
terms of their presence, or non-
presence, as sports mascots.

Those foreign to Kansas, or
even the Midwest, hold a ste-
reotypical view of our great
Sunfower state that can be
both narrow and ignorant. That
doesn’t mean they aren’t willing
to learn about the great abyss
between Los Angeles and New
York City.
This past summer, I lived in
New York City as part of a pub-
lic relations internship. I rode
the subway from the Lower East
Side to Times Square three days
a week to work for a company
promoting Broadway shows.
Because my internship was un-
paid, I also waitressed at a small
restaurant in the Lower East
Side, Grilled Cheese NYC. Both
of these experiences allowed
me to live like a genuine New
Yorker. Whether it was putting
on a professional voice to deal
with publications like The New
York Times, or making a grilled
cheese sandwich dripping with
fxings for Lower East Siders, I
came to learn more about my-
self, New York and the way
those on the East coast perceive
Kansas and the Midwest in gen-
Some may think living in
New York is moving on to big-
ger things, but in reality, it’s not
better, it’s just different. I have
lived in that surreal concrete
jungle for the last two summers,
and while I love it with all my
heart, there is a strong part of
me that cannot wait to return
to my life in Lawrence and Kan-
sas in general. The more time I
spend away from the Midwest,
the more grateful I am that I was
raised here. It is here that I have
been greeted in the morning
by a gentle breeze of fresh cut
grass and honeysuckle, devoid
of any hints of trash. I can stroll
carefree by myself down Massa-
chusetts Street without making
sure I bring mace. I have seen
a sunset fading red to purple to
orange, bursting at the edge of
the earth with a brilliant pink-
yellow hue.
My New York co-workers
sometimes would ask me about
Kansas, this strange Land of Oz.
What happens there? Is it really
just all farmland? Is cow tipping
the main form of entertainment?
I was always more than happy to
speak proudly of my home state
and clarify any misconceptions.
After all, why would I dare to
trash the state that had made me
the wholesome, midwestern girl
that I am?
The Midwest is greatly under-
rated. We have some of the best
beef and freshest produce there
is. We have county fairs and
the Future Farmers of America.
Things that coastal cities may
see as trite or behind the times
are actual wonderful charac-
teristics that set us apart from
the overzealous life in the fast
lane. Being from the Midwest
may give you a sheltered view
of the world, but only if you al-
low yourself to be close-mind-
ed. Midwesterners are a strong
breed, capable of thriving in
any situation. We have a good
idea of who we are and what we
stand for, a great combination
for fearlessly taking the world
on. People are just people, no
matter where you go, and they
all have a fascinating story or
two to share. Experience other
cultures, inside and outside of
the U.S., but never forget how
hard Dorothy fought to get back
to Kansas, because “there’s no
place like home.”

competition in the Big 12 Confer-

Iowa State was the surprise of
the Big 12 Conference last year,
taking advantage of a weak divi-

North crown.
Last season, the Cyclones
were picked to fnish near the
bottom of the conference. They
hadn’t captured a football tro-

Dan McCarney said he was hope-

to improve.
“We have rewritten the history
books at Iowa State,” McCarney
said. “We have done things the
school and program has never
done in football, and yet we have
lots and lots of room to improve.”
Iowa State fnished the sea-
son winning fve of its last
six games, including a victory
against Miami of Ohio in the
Independence Bowl. The only
game the Cyclones dropped
during that stretch was a 17-14
match against Missouri.
A victory in that game would
have given the Cyclones sole
possession of the Big 12 North
division, and would have sent
them into the Big 12 Champion-
ship game against Oklahoma.
Leading the Cyclones this
season will be sophomore
quarterback Bret Meyer. Meyer
started all 12 games for Iowa
State last season.
“There is a tremendous upside
to Bret Meyer,” McCarney said. “It
is just a matter of improving, doing
the little things right, and picking
up where he left off last year.”
Meyer will be joined in the
backfeld by junior running back
Stevie Hicks. Hicks ran for more
than 1,000 yards last season and
will take pressure off Meyer.
Also important on offense
will be sophomore wide receiver
Todd Blythe. Blythe was named
to the Big 12 Media Preseason
Football Team after wowing op-
ponents by catching nine touch-
downs and leading the confer-
ence in yards per catch.
Another target for Meyer will
be junior wide receiver Austin
Flynn. Flynn saw time at quar-
terback last year, but was moved
to wide receiver in the off sea-
son to make room for Meyer.
On defense, the Cyclones will
have to replace frst-team All-Big
12 cornerback Ellis Hobbs. Hobbs
was the only Cyclone chosen in the
NFL draft. Senior safety Nik Moser
will be expected to replace Hobbs
as the leader in the secondary.
Another stand-out on defense
will be senior defensive tackle
Nick Leaders. Leaders is a four-
year starter who coaches named
second-team All-Big 12.
The Cyclones open their sea-
son Sept. 3 against Illinois State.
Their second game will pit the
Cyclones against in-state rival
Iowa in a game that could be a
major test for both teams. Other
key games on the schedule in-
clude a trip to Missouri and a
home match-up with Colorado.
Iowa State concludes it’s regular
season in Lawrence on Nov. 26.

“I was disappointed with how
we played in most of game two and
all of game three,” Bechard said.
He said Kansas had some
things it needed to straighten out
before heading to Provo, Utah,
next weekend for the BYU/Utah
Valley State Challenge.
“We had a few too many hit-
ting errors,” Bechard said of the
Jayhawks’ 21 miscues. “Overall,
though, we identifed a lot of things
that we can continue to work on.”
Correa, whose hard spike
ended the match, said the team
was happy with the way the sea-
son has begun.
Correa said the Jayhawks
know what they need to do be-
fore they see tougher competi-
tion next weekend.
“The main focus is passing and
defense,” Correa said. “When we
play BYU, a top 25 team, they’re
going to hit pretty hard.”
Kansas sweeps Alabama
The Kansas volleyball team
started its season with a bang on
Friday with a sweep of Alabama
at the Horejsi Family Athletics
The match was much closer
than the 3-0 score indicated. The
Jayhawks took game one, 30-28,
behind a balanced attack. Cor-
rea had fve kills, and three oth-
er Jayhawks tallied three kills
each. Alabama was betrayed by
a .133 attack percentage.
Game two saw Kansas fght
back from a 25-22 defcit to win.
Following a questionable call on
a diving save by Alabama, Kansas
ran off eight of the game’s next 11
points to win 30-28.
Bechard said he was happy with
his players’ resilience after the dis-
puted point put them in a hole.
“The whistle didn’t blow, so
there’s no reason we should have
stopped,” Bechard said. “But it
was good how we fought back.”
The Jayhawks wrapped up the
match in game three. Sophomore
opposite hitter Emily Brown
served Kansas to an early 10-5
lead. The Jayhawks never looked
back and won the game, 30-22.
Lima said she was pleased
with Kansas’ effort.
“Alabama is a very good de-
fensive team, but we were ready
for them,” she said.
Noyes was another bright
spot for the Jayhawks. She start-
ed in her frst collegiate match
and had nine kills at a .444 at-
tack percentage.
She said she felt more com-
fortable in her role after getting
a match under her belt.
Kansas won its season opener
for the eighth straight season. The
streak began when Bechard took
over before the 1998 season.
— Edited by Nate Karlin
continued from page 12a
Senior forward Caroline Smith
scored the frst goal of the game,
putting the Jayhawks up in the
12th minute of the contest.
Junior defender Nikki Alva-
rez led Kansas’ offensive attack.
After a quick steal, Alvarez
took off down the feld before fr-
ing in a goal from almost 20 yards
out. The score tied the game at
two and sent the Jayhawks into
temporary celebration.
“I was so excited, my team-
mates were excited and I think
that we kind of got back into a
momentum for a while,” Alvarez
Although Kansas fell to 0-1-1,
the team maintains a positive out-
look for the season. The team will
match up against Missouri State
in Lawrence on Wednesday.
“You’re going to make mis-
takes, but we learn from them,”
Francis said. “If we make the
same mistakes on Wednesday,
then we have issues.”
Francis said he was pleased
with how well the team kept
and handled the ball. He said
that their combinations also
continue to improve.
Quinn, Sauer and freshman
midfelder Jenny Murtaugh, played
all 97 minutes of the match, but
none of them attributed the loss to
fatigue from Friday’s double-over-
time tie with Michigan.
That match ended in a 1-1
draw after the second overtime.
Francis said his team did a good
job of adjusting to the artifcial turf
on the feld in Topeka, despite
temperatures of approximately
107 degrees.
Kansas trailed Michigan 1-0
heading into the half. It wasn’t un-
til the 59th minute that Smith put
the Jayhawks on the board. The
Jayhawks out shot the Wolver-
ines 36-10 and also tripled their
shots on goal, 15-5.
Sophomore forward Melissa
Dobbyn scored her third goal in
as many games to lead the Wol-

SONOMA, Calif. — Tony
Kanaan took advantage of team-
mate Dan Wheldon’s misfortune
to move into the lead, then ran
away from the rest of the field to
win the Argent Mortgage Indy
Grand Prix at Infineon Race-
Kanaan beat Buddy Rice by
1.182 seconds — about eight
car-lengths — for his second IRL
IndyCar victory of the season,
completing a sweep for Andretti
Green Racing yesterday. Owner
Michael Andretti’s son, Marco,
won the Menards Infiniti Pro
Series earlier in the day.
It was Wheldon’s broken fuel
pump that allowed Kanaan to take
the lead on the 53rd of 80 laps.
“I have had bad days and
he capitalized a lot on them,”
Kanaan said of Wheldon, the
IndyCar points leader.
Kanaan averaged 91.040 mph
around Infineon’s 12-turn, 2.26-
mile track in the first IRL race
held on a road course.
“I think we raced pretty
smart. I know I’m going to have
to win every race the rest of this
year to win the championship,”
Kanhe said.
Red Bull Cheever Racing
teammates Alex Barron and Pat-
rick Carpentier finished third
and fourth, 1.854 seconds and
2.664 seconds, respectively, be-
hind Kanaan.
A 19th-lap crash took out the
two fastest qualifiers as Helio
Castroneves and Ryan Briscoe
were attempting to pass rookie
Danica Patrick.
Patrick was the last of six cars
that remained on course as the
rest of the pack pitted on lap
17, after Ed Carpenter spun and
stalled. Briscoe slammed into
the side of Patrick and she gath-
ered up Castroneves.
“I don’t know what the heck
he was thinking. He just decided
to pass everybody in one corner
and he ended up taking every-
body out,” Castroneves said.
Patrick said it was “a foolish
move. Helio shouldn’t have tak-
en the brunt of that and, for that
matter, I shouldn’t have either.”

Jayhawks flock for food
MOnday, august 29, 2005 the university daily Kansan 11a spOrts
By Ryan Colaianni
Kansan staff writer
Although Kansas football
coach Mark Mangino has not
named a starter for this Satur-
day’s game against Florida At-
lantic, all signs are pointing to
junior Adam Barmann.
Barmann started the frst eight
games last season, before suffering
an apparent shoulder injury against
Iowa State, ending his season. Bar-
mann has since worked with the
frst team throughout spring prac-
tices and training camp.
“Adam Barmann has picked
up some ground coming out of
the summer program. He’s prob-
ably the most prepared of our
veteran quarterbacks,” Mangino
said. “He still has to continue to
improve to win the job.”
At the team’s annual media
day on Aug. 11, Barmann was
asked if the starting quarterback
job was his. He confdently an-
swered “yeah.”
He passed for 1,427 yards
with 12 touchdowns over nine
Pushing Barmann is senior
Brian Luke.
Luke led the team to victory
over Missouri last season, yet
was listed behind Barmann and
senior Jason Swanson on the
depth chart when spring prac-
tices ended in April.
Since then, Luke went to
Mangino and told him he wanted
to be the starting quarterback.
“I made it clear that I do not
want to be the back-up, that I
want to be the starter,” Luke
said. “But should I be the back-
up I will do that with 100 percent
Mangino appreciated Luke
talking to him in his offce, rath-
er than hearing it from another
coach, Luke said.
“I am as confdent as I have
ever been. I know the offense
better than I ever have before,”
Luke said. “I am defnitely look-
ing forward to this season.”
Luke saw action in three
games last year and his pass-eff-
ciency rating was the highest of
any of the team’s quarterbacks.
He passed for 467 yards and
three touchdowns.
Luke also nearly led Kansas
to a victory over Texas, the week
before the Missouri contest.
“Brian Luke is a very good
player who has a great command
of the offense,” Barmann said.
“We have a lot of very good play-
ers at the quarterback position
and it will make all of us better.”
Freshman quarterback Kerry
Meier is also still in the mix for
the job, Mangino said.
“The young guy, Kerry Meier,
each and every day he learns
more and more about our of-
fense,” Mangino said. “You can
see he’s an awfully talented guy.”
Mangino hasn’t said whether
Meier wouldn’t receive a red-
shirt this season.
Senior quarterback Jason
Swanson, who threw the go-
ahead touchdown against Kansas
State last season, apparently is not
in the race for the starting job.
“Swanson’s been slowed
down. He doesn’t take many
repetitions and has lost a lot of
ground consequently,” Mangino
said. “He’s got a long way to go
to get himself back in the race.”
Whoever wins the quarter-
back job will lead an offense
that struggled at times last
season moving the ball down-
field as it averaged just over
300 yards of total offense per
Barmann said that going
against one of the Big 12 Con-
ference’s top defenses in prac-
tice has helped the quarter-
backs’ progress this offseason.
“Those guys fy around and they
have playmakers. To go against
them every day is a tremendous
help to our offense,” Barmann

Mangino suspends fullback
while incident is investigated
Kansas football coach Mark Mangino indef-
nitely suspended sophomore fullback Bruce
Ringwood on Friday afternoon. Ringwood was
arrested Aug. 21 for two counts of assault.
“I have suspended Bruce until we gather all
the facts related to this incident,” Mangino said.
“I’m disturbed that one of our players would be
involved in something like this. We have high
standards of conduct that we expect from our
student athletes. This behavior goes against
everything we stand for at the University of
Ringwood allegedly punched a woman and
her husband at a Kenny Chesney concert at
Kemper Arena.
“I would like to apologize to my teammates,
coaches and my university for my involvement
in this incident,” Ringwood said. “I regret that
it happened, and my focus now is on doing
everything I can do to be a good student and a
good football player.”

Athletes need
to walk away
from off-court
Monday, august 29, 2005 page 12a
Enough is enough. This is not what Kansas athletics
is about.
A week ago, Kansas prepared for the start of the
football season. This was an opportunity for the Jay-
hawks to start on a clean slate after the fallout of de-
parted running back John Randle. Then there was an
incident at a Kenny Chesney concert involving sopho-
more fullback Bruce Ringwood.
The men’s basketball team is still having problems
after current and former members were spotted at Abe
and Jake’s Landing, 8 E. Sixth St., Saturday night when
several fghts started.
The Lawrence Police Department responded to a
brawl that erupted at Abe and Jake’s earlier that night.
Tyler Tornaden, Abe and Jake’s manager, said student
athletes did not initiate the brawl, but tried to break
it up.
Sophomore guard Rodrick Stewart was injured
during the incident and treated at Lawrence Memorial
Hospital. Former guard Aaron Miles and former for-
ward Moulaye Niang were also seen at the hospital.
I hope Rodrick’s recovering well, but it never should
have to come to this.
I’m aware that student athletes undergo enormous
pressure to succeed on the feld or on the court. I can
understand the diffculty of constant expectations to
excel, even in the offseason. But there are different
ways to deal with these types of incidents.
I propose a simple
solution: walk away.
Below are several
reasons why student
athletes need to walk
away from these kinds
of situations.
First, while it’s admi-
rable to try and break
up a fght from getting
out of control, it would
be unfortunate to get
hurt in the process.
Student athletes should
consider their personal
safety. An individual in
a fght could be carrying
a knife — or even a gun.
It is not worth the risk.
Furthermore, athletes
should consider their
athletic careers. Help-
ing or being involved
in a brawl can turn into
disaster. For instance,
athletes should not risk
their athletic and or professional careers on getting in-
volved in a bar brawl.
Also, consider the reputation of Kansas Athletics,
which has declined during the past year. Randle was
arrested fve times since November 2003. Giddens left
the school in the offseason after getting stabbed in his
right calf. Kansas football coach Mark Mangino sus-
pended Ringwood last week for assaulting a woman
and her husband at a Kenny Chesney concert at Kem-
per Arena. Now, the Abe and Jake’s incident happens.
I know every athlete isn’t responsible for these inci-
dents. Simply put, though, this is embarrassing.
Many student athletes come to the University on a
partial or full-ride scholarship. They should not under-
mine the value of a free education by getting involved
in brawls.
Athletes should have a social life, but there are ways
to go out and have a good time without the police
getting involved. When the night ends, we should be
concentrating on beating Kansas State and Missouri
instead of diverting attention to the hospital.
So do yourselves, the fans and the police all a favor
— walk away.

Kansas outmatched the University of Missouri-
Kansas City Saturday night in the fnale of the
State Farm Jayhawk Classic, winning 3-0 for its
second straight victory.
The Jayhawks jumped all over the Kangaroos
in game one. They quickly led 17-6 en route to a
30-18 blowout. Kansas toted a gaudy .542 attack
percentage in a balanced effort at the net. UMKC,
in contrast, had eight errors against six kills.

From there, the Jayhawks seemed to lose the

Senior middle blocker Josi Lima had fve kills in
the game, and the Jayhawks outblocked the Kan-
garoos 5-3.

The NCAA hasn’t yet cleared
Brandon Rush to play basket-
ball on an athletic scholarship,
but he is a student at the Univer-
sity of Kansas.

Kansas City, Mo., enrolled at the
University on Friday, said his
grandmother, Jeannette Jacobs.
Recruiting Web site rivals.
com ranked Rush as the 13th
best player in the class of 2005
and the second-best small for-
ward, behind Kansas freshman
Julian Wright.
Rush has been linked to the
University for several weeks,
but can’t become academically
eligible for a scholarship until
the NCAA approves all of his
Rush was not able to retrieve
the transcripts from Mt. Zion
Academy in Durham, N.C., one
of the four high schools he at-
tended, Jacobs said.
“The school closed so they
couldn’t send them,” Jacobs said.
She said the clearinghouse did
fnally receive all of her grand-
son’s transcripts and he expected
to be cleared early this week.
“All of his transcripts are
valid, he just couldn’t get them,”
she said.
Enrolling at the University in-
creases the likelihood that Rush
will be wearing a Jayhawks uni-
form this year.
Brandon’s older brother
JaRon Rush was infuential in
Brandon’s decision to choose
Kansas over Illinois and Indi-
ana, Jacobs said. She said JaRon
Rush, who played basketball at
UCLA, encouraged his brother
to go to Kansas and stay close
to home.
“They had a nice phone con-
versation about it,” Jacobs said.
“His brother told him it would be
good for him to stay close to home
so he could go see him play.”
Brandon Rush originally de-
clared for the NBA draft, but
withdrew his name. Jacobs said
she didn’t know if Brandon
Rush would attend classes this
morning, but said she thought he
would wait until he is cleared.
