When Katie Young learned yester-
day that she had been voted to the
ffth and fnal seat in the freshman
Student Senate elections, she didn’t
even know where to go for her frst
The Derby freshman said she was
amazed she had won because 30 other
freshmen were running, the most to
campaign since Senate held elections
for freshmen three years ago.
Young and the four other winners
then went to work and attended a
meeting last night with the elections
chairman to get ready for their frst Sen-
ate committee meeting as senators.
Joining Young were Adam Hurly,
Jonathan Shafer, Katie Wiley and Bill
Walberg. They represent the 2005 fresh-
man class this year in Student Senate.
Luke Thompson, Lawrence junior
and elections chairman, reported in an
e-mail he sent to all the candidates that
653 people voted in the elections. He
said he was impressed with the number
of freshmen who ran and voted.
Hurley, Sioux Falls, S.D., fresh-
man, received 206 votes, the most of
all the candidates.
He said chalking in front of the resi-
dence halls helped publicize his name
and get him elected. He met people
to collect signatures and that prepared
him for the campaigning process.
“I was nervous, yes, but I wasn’t go-
ing to be heartbroken if I didn’t win,”
Hurly said. “I put in time campaigning
and I think it pulled it off.”
Bill Walberg, another winner, said
being new to the University forced
him to meet people. That process
helped start his campaign.
The Sunnyvale, Calif., freshman,
said students he had met in McCol-
lum Hall helped spread his name and
get him elected. He said he would
lobby for improvements for his hall
as a freshman representative.

Ron Wroczynski sells a hotdog to Casey Parr, Topeka junior, on Wescoe beach yesterday. Wroczynski, a supervisor for the KU Memorial Unions, brought the
cart out for the frst time this semester to sell hot dogs, bratwursts and drinks. He said he would try to bring the cart to Wescoe Beach twice a month, every other
Wednesday, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. So far business has been “not too bad,” Wroczynski said. Carlos Stephens, Seattle junior, said the cart was convenient because
he could get a hotdog while he was on the go. “It also gives Wescoe Beach a different favor; a Coney Island thing,” Stephens said. Hot dogs and drinks cost $1
each. A bratwurst costs $2.

The whistle that signals the end of class may
not be operating until the middle of next week, ac-
cording to an employee of the company working
on the roof of the power plant.
Kirk Hinnergardt, executive superintendent
of Diamond Everley Roofng, said he planned
to have the work completed by Wednesday. He
said the company was waiting for wall panels
to arrive.
“Ultimately we’d like to have it done by now,
but we’re at the mercy of suppliers,” Hinner-
gardt said.
Contractors continue with last-minute touch-
ups on the roof of the power plant, where the
whistle is located.
The whistle was disabled to protect contractors
who were working on the roof, said George Cone,
assistant director of mechanical systems.
“The decibel is too high for ears. We’ve had
contractors almost go over the side when it’s gone
off,” Cone said.
The re-roofng project was sent for bid three
times, according to Mark Reiske, associate direc-
tor of design and construction.
When the University selected a contractor, the
bid was for more than the University budgeted for
the project. The University delayed the project un-
til it found supplemental funds for the $147,000
Reiske said that the construction was originally
planned for summer because student population
was much greater in the fall,
“It’s taken way too darn long,” Reiske said.

The Robinson Center is preparing to become
a temporary home for as many as 250 Hurricane
Katrina victims.
On Tuesday, Gov. Kathleen Sebelius said Kan-
sas could offer shelter to as many as 4,230 refugees
who would be allocated to shelters throughout the
state, including Johnson and Shawnee counties.
Paula Phillips, director of Douglas County
Emergency Management, said that if either coun-
ty received more refugees than it could hold, those
people would be transferred to Douglas County
— either to Robinson or the Douglas County Fair-
The Federal Emergency Management Agency
gives notice only 24 hours in advance if people
will be sent.
“We don’t know if or when,” Phillips said.
Bob Frederick, the interim chairman of health,
sports and exercise sciences who also manages
Robinson, said the building could provide space,
lockers and bathrooms for 250 people.
Although there are classes at Robinson dur-
ing the day, Frederick said HSES was willing to
change schedules for the refugees.
“We’re trying to help, and we would move stuff
if necessary,” he said.

Tire slashings latest
in vandalism string
By Steve Lynn
Kansan staff writer
The tires of 17 vehicles were
slashed Friday in the parking
lot of Delta Chi fraternity, 1245
West Campus Road. The damage
was the most recent incident in
a rash of vandalism at fraternity
houses this year.
Josh Stewart, president of
Delta Chi and Lawrence junior,
said sometime between 3:30 and
8:30 a.m. each of the vehicles
had one to three tires slashed.
“My biggest concern was
that we had guys that needed to
drive to jobs and go home for
the weekend,” Stewart said.
Most of the tires have been re-
placed, but some of the members
who did not have spare tires need-
ed their cars towed, Stewart said.
Stewart said he didn’t know
who committed the crimes but
that police were investigating
the incident.
Sgt. Dan Ward of the Law-
rence Police Department said
that criminal damage reports
from fraternities were not un-
common at the beginning of
the semester because fraternity
members often play pranks on
members of other chapters. But
Scott Shorten, president of the
Interfraternity Council, said that
the recent vandalism is too dam-
aging to be considered a prank.

his 10th year at the University.
By Frank tankard
Kansan staff writer
In Robert Hemenway’s 10
years as chancellor, his impact at
the University of Kansas is appar-
ent. He has overseen his share of
changes, and while his decisions
have been met with both agree-
ment and dissent, he continues
to set aggressive goals.
One of Hemenway’s most
publicized goals is to turn the
University into a top-25 public
university. He said that to achieve
this goal, the University would
likely need to adopt a more se-
lective admissions policy.
In an interview last week, Hem-
enway listed two more goals he’d
like to achieve in the near future.
One is a review of the gen-
eral education program, which
the University has been talk-
ing about for a couple of years.

The University of Kansas introduced
two new elements to its visual identity
yesterday: a graphic signature and a
new television commercial. It also hon-
ored the creator of the Jayhawk that is
used today.
The graphic signature is a combina-
tion of the University’s logo and name.
The elements were introduced yester-
day at an event in the Kansas Union’s
Alderson Auditorium.
“It creates an effcient, uniform look
for the University,” said Paul Carttar,
executive vice chancellor for external
Chancellor Robert Hemenway said
he thought the new commercial, which
will air during the University’s televised
athletic events, did a good job of con-
veying what the University is all about.
“It certainly brings out a sense of
community,” he said. “That’s KU’s
strongest asset.”
Two years ago the University formed
a team of faculty and staff to create the
new visual elements, Carttar said. Work
on the project began one year ago, and
in January of 2005, focus groups and
members of the University community
gave their opinions on the elements.
Hal Sandy, creator of the Jayhawk
that is still used today, was presented
with an award during the event yes-
terday for his contribution to the Uni-
versity. Sandy, who said he had never
drawn a cartoon before, created the
“smiling” Jayhawk in 1946 on the re-
quest of his friend Ed Brown, a former
public relations director for the Uni-
versity. Sandy sold the copyright to the
Jayhawk to the frst director of the KU
Bookstores for $250.
“The Jayhawk was born on my
grandmother’s dining room table,”
Sandy said.
Hemenway said the University would
never get rid of the Jayhawk as a KU sym-
bol. But he said the new elements would
introduce a new era to the University.
“The University is committed to a
uniform way of presenting KU,” He-
menway said. “It is a very strong and
vibrant university.”

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — In the federal fraud
trial of two former Westar Energy Inc. execu-
tives, the jury will begin its seventh day of
deliberations today.
Former Westar chief executive David Wittig
and former strategy offcer Douglas Lake face
40 counts, including conspiracy and money
laundering. Prosecutors say the two intended
to infate their compensation and hide it from
company offcials. Forced to leave Westar in
2002, the two denied the charges, saying their
actions were legal, approved by Westar and
disclosed in corporate flings.

Dan Hughes was ecstatic
when he attended a trade show
in Salt Lake City and watched
outdoor-themed flms at a the-
ater that served beer. Eventually,
Hughes brought the experience
to Kansas.
Now that flm festival, the
Banff Mountain Film Festival,
will come to Lawrence for its
fourth consecutive year Friday
and Saturday at Liberty Hall.
The festival will feature 14 flms
on rock climbing, kayaking,
mountain biking, skiing and
Hughes, owner of Sunfower
Outdoor & Bike Shop, said
that even though the adrenaline
flms were a huge draw, the cul-
tural flms were the ones people
talked about for weeks after the
The festival is hosted by Sun-
fower Outdoor & Bike Shop,
802 Massachusetts St., and also
serves as a beneft event for
the KU Rock Climbing Club.
Hughes said more than 600 peo-
ple attended the event last year.
Shane Barber, Lindsborg ju-
nior and vice president of the
KU Rock Climbing Club, said
that last year Sunfower donat-
ed $250 to the club. He said the
money went toward rock-climb-
ing gear and climbing trips.
The actual Banff Mountain
Film Festival takes place in
the city of Banff, located in Al-
berta, Canada. Started in 1976,
the annual event, held the frst
weekend of November, features
55 flms. The festival’s Web site,
ca, bills it as a celebration of
“mountain culture.”
Starting in March, a selection
of the best flms entered in the
festival go on a North American
tour to more than 185 cities.
Although Lawrence is one
of the last stops on the tour,
Hughes said that was the best
way to do it.
“We picked to be in the fall be-
cause we receive feedback from
the people in charge of the fes-
tival about flms that have gone
over well but that we might not
have chosen,” Hughes said.
Sunfower staff and selected
members of the community
screen 25 flms beforehand and
choose the 14 that will be shown
at Liberty Hall, 642 Massachu-
setts St. Hughes said the festival
was a good mixture of flms that
were applicable to people living
in Lawrence.
“We may not have mountains
right off campus,” he said. “But
it’s a great way to live vicari-
ously through the people in the
flms and get people psyched up
about this stuff.”
Friday night, attendees will
see “Alone Across Australia”
featuring climber Jon Muir, who
made a 128-day trek by foot
along the Australia coast with
his dog. Saturday night will
feature “Daughters of Everest,”
a documentary about the frst
organized expedition of Sherpa
women to climb Everest.
Tickets are available at Liber-
ty Hall and Sunfower Outdoor
& Bike Shop. Tickets cost $7.50
each night.

Ward said he also thought the

pranks getting out of hand. A
sign outside of the house, bear-
ing the fraternity’s greek letters,

aged again in August.
“Their vandalism was proba-
bly vengeance on the part of the

must complete before entering a
professional school or choosing
a major. He said he would likely
form a task force to improve the
general education of students at
the University.
“We want to ask, ‘Are we ac-
complishing all the goals we want
to accomplish in general educa-
tion?’” Hemenway said.
Hemenway also said he’d like to
do a better job of preparing students
for a global economy, noting that
other countries are catching up with
the United States technologically.
Hemenway’s third goal is to im-
prove the funding for biosciences
and life sciences. Though research
funding overall has increased from
$94 million in 1995 to $274 million
last year, he said he’d like to have
more money for those subjects.
When Hemenway arrived at the
University, one of his goals was
to increase minority enrollment.
When he arrived, 9.4 percent of
students were minorities. That
number rose slightly to 11.6 per-
cent last year.
“I’m pleased we’ve made some
strides. We’ve added some faculty
of color, but I think we can do
much better. We have the highest
enrollment of students of color that
we’ve ever had,” said Hemenway,
who is an African-American lit-
erature scholar and wrote a biog-
raphy on black writer Zora Neale
Hurston in 1978. Even though
Hemenway has helped increase
minority enrollment, Ray Pierotti,
associate professor of indigenous
studies and ecology and evolution-
ary biology, said Hemenway has
not always succeeded in treating
minorities fairly.
“I think his heart is in the right
place,” said Pierotti, who came to
the University in 1992.
Sometimes, however, Hemen-
way’s decisions don’t serve to ben-
eft minorities, Pierotti said.
Pierotti, a Native American
who lost a discrimination lawsuit
against the University in 2000, said
that Hemenway’s administration
has been less receptive to griev-
ances than he would like. Pierotti
fled the lawsuit with his wife, Cyn-
thia Annett, because they believed
that Annett was denied tenure and
Pierotti was removed from his po-
sition as chairman of the depart-
ment of ecology and evolutionary
biology’s minority affairs commit-
tee partially based on gender and
race discrimination.
Andy Peterson, who has worked
at the University as a landscaper for
the last four years, said Hemenway
was responsive to his less-contro-
versial gripes.
“If you’ve got a complaint, he
listens,” said Peterson. “All you’ve
got to do is e-mail him. He’s good
about complimenting us when
campus looks good.”
For many students, Hemenway
is an invisible force at the Univer-
sity, a man they see speaking at an
occasional event but don’t feel a
close connection to. But this is an
inevitable problem at a university
with an enrollment close to 30,000
“What I’d like to see is more ac-
tivities at his house, like coming to
eat with him, to get to know him a
little more,” Clayton Holmes, Wich-
ita sophomore, said. “I’ve seen him
before, I shook his hand, but I don’t
know who the chancellor is.”
Hemenway, 64, says that he has
no plans to retire in the next few
years. But when he turns 70, he says
he might step down as chancellor
but continue to teach English.
“The regents have asked me
my plans, and I said my plan
was to go till I’m 70,” Hem-
enway said. “As long as I’m in
good health, I don’t see why that
wouldn’t be a proper goal.”

“Living in McCollum, the
people are great, but the dorm
sucks,” Walberg said.
Rachel Burchfield, Topeka
freshman, finished 22nd in
the voting. She said that al-
though she was disappointed
she wasn’t elected, she was
glad she had ran. She said
the process of gathering sig-
natures to get her name on
the ballot gave her the op-
portunity to meet new peo-
ple. She was so busy in her
sorority that she didn’t have
enough time to campaign to
win a spot, Burchfield said.
“Everything works out for
a reason,” Burchfeld said. “I
gained more than I lost even
though I lost the election.”

Flipping through the news
channels, I see only one kind
of news, and that is — you
guessed it — Hurricane Ka-
trina. Thanks to this natural
phenomenon, it seems that
lately the rest of the world has

potentially dying because of
This disinterest in the rest
of the world is made more evi-
dent when a disaster occurs in
U.S. territory. I am not saying
that Katrina isn’t an enormous
tragedy. People affected should
be helped as soon as possible.
But to look at the situation
from a global point of view,
natural disasters happen all
the time in countries where
students do not have the privi-
lege of transferring to a differ-
ent college because theirs’ is
In Indonesia, a country
struck by the tsunami last year,
the gross domestic product is
$827.4 billion, according to
the CIA’s World Fact Book,
while the United States’ is
$11.75 trillion.
By looking at these numbers,
it is easy to realize the advan-
tage the United States has in
order to recuperate from such
a disaster.
What makes a tragedy a
tragedy? Is it the fact that we
know about it, or is it because
it’s occurring in our world?
Newspapers, including our
own the University Daily Kan-
san, seem to portray that be-
cause American citizens are
not involved in a disaster, the
event somehow matters less.
That is why we do not hear
about events such as the geno-
cide in Rwanda where 800,000
Tutsis died.
Just this week, the British
Broadcasting Network report-
ed that 14 immigrants died
in a fire in Paris. This is only
the latest in a series of fires in

Two days ago, 190 people
died in a plane crash in Indo-
nesia, and five Islamic militants
were killed by Syrian troops in
an environment that has killed
more than 1,000 people in Af-
ghanistan this year.
Yes, this is what is happen-
ing around the world: deaths
that you do not hear about
on TV. Tragedies that involve
people outside of the United
States who, just like the dead
in New Orleans, had parents,
children, friends and a story to

Dear student body:
On behalf of our coaches
and football student-athletes, I
want to thank you for your ter-
rific support at Saturday’s foot-
ball game vs. Florida Atlantic.
You came early — in very large num-
bers — you stayed late, you were loud,
and many of you showed your true
colors by wearing Kansas blue. You
are truly our 12th man!
That’s just the kind of sup-
port our football team will
need as we progress through
the season.
We hope you enjoyed your-
selves, and we hope you con-
tinue to come out to Memorial
Stadium to cheer on the Jay-
We look forward to seeing
all of you at the game against
Appalacian State at Memorial
this Saturday at 6 p.m.
Thanks again, students, and
Rock Chalk Jayhawk!

Director of athletics, coaches thank students for enthusiasm
It was impressive how we
the students were excited and
loud before and throughout
a part of KU’s football home
opener Saturday against Flor-
ida Atlantic.
Yet, when the Hawks really
could have used us we didn’t
do our job.
Yes, it was hot. Yes, the
team was struggling a little
bit. Yes, the game wasn’t ex-
actly action packed and down
to the last second thrilling.
Still none of these excuses
are valid.
Many of us left the game
when it was still close. Many
of us decided we were simply
too tired and sat down during
the actual game.
I’m not talking about dur-
ing timeouts either. (Feel
free to sit down and rest dur-
ing timeouts, but be back on
your feet before the first play
starts). Could you imagine
seeing students sitting down
for one second in a one-point
game in basketball at Allen
I know we are a basketball
school, but that doesn’t mean
there isn’t room for football.
This year’s team has a lot of
potential and is going to sur-
prise people.
Noise factor was a prob-
lem as well. When we really
needed to be loud Saturday,
we simply weren’t. There
were times when there was
no noise at all when FAU had
the ball.
Also, third downs aren’t
the only big downs. It should
be loud each and every down.
The crowd really can make
a difference in a close game.
The crowd sure played a big
part in last year’s thrilling vic-
tory over K-State.
If you didn’t attend that
game, the crowd noise caused
them to use two timeouts that
they sure could have used
near the end of the game.
That’s the kind of homefield
advantage we need to create
at Memorial Stadium.
There are times when there
should be no noise. We were
sometimes louder when our
team had the ball then when
they were on defense. This
isn’t basketball where the
goal is to stay loud the whole
In football, we as fans ac-
tually do get a break, and
that break comes when our
side has the ball. I liked the
attempts by some to help
when they were on offense by
chanting “Lets Go Jayhawks,”
with claps following, but save
the positive energy for when
we’re on defense.
The offense needs silence
when they take the field so
they can hear if the quar-
terback has to audible and
change the play, or commu-
nicate with other players who
aren’t standing right by him.
I know these things don’t
apply to everyone and don’t
take this the wrong way, but
these are important things
that could make the differ-
ence in a victory or loss.
Teams really thrive off the
crowd. Ask any one of our
players and they will tell you
the crowd really does make a
From now on, let’s be our
own team in the stands and
work together and make it a
point to fill the student sec-
tion at Memorial Stadium for
the entire game, and make it
a hostile environment that
our opponents won’t want to
come back too.
I’ll see you Saturday against
Appalachian State. Rock
Chalk Jayhawk!

F HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday,
Sept. 8, 2005: You need to be hon-
est with yourself about what you
do and don’t like about your life.
You will have an opportunity in the
near future to change your life if
you know what you want. You are
going to be much happier in your
daily life, especially after the fall.
As a result, others will want to be
around you. You will meet people
easily. You also might be consid-
ering buying a new car or perhaps
a computer. You will spend more
than you want, but will be very
happy. If you are single, you will
have a set of admirers. You might
enjoy dating more than making a
commitment. If you are attached,
you love going out together as a
couple. You get reacquainted.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
HHHHH You have a lot going on
with an association or partnership.
The issues you are dealing with
could concern money or emotions.
A friend might give you advice, but
he or she is not seeing the situation
clearly. TonighT: QualiTy Time wiTh ThaT
special person.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
HHHH You could easily be dis-
tracted by those around you right
now. A boss only adds to the present
confusion. Let others call the shots,
as what you say and do might be
irrelevant for now. Let others reveal
their ideas. TonighT: JusT don’T be
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
HHH You might need to get down
to the hard facts. What you do does
make a big difference at work. Focus
on the here and now, and get a
project done. If you daydream, you
could make a mistake. TonighT: do
someThing uTTerly relaxing.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
HHHHH Your imagination and re-
sulting ideas make sense to you, but
might not to an associate or partner.
Don’t worry; you just need to frame
your ideas differently to get your
point across. Use care with funds.
TonighT: geT inTo weekend mode.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
HH You might be disappointed
when someone forgets something
essential and basic. Don’t go into a
cocoon. Rather, start talking out a
problem and allow yourself to open
up as well. You might need more
security. TonighT: be a couch poTaTo.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
HHHHH You say the right words
to make others happy. However,
you are easily distracted. If you feel
bored, you need work that is more
fulflling. You want to make a differ-
ence. Start talking about possibili-
ties. TonighT: go cruising To a favoriTe
spoT or Two.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
HHH Worry less about a child
or loved one. You sense that this
person is pulling the wool over
your eyes, and you are right. But
you cannot confront this situation
just yet. Deal with your fnances
in a steady, conservative manner.
TonighT: recognize how much play
money you have.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
HHHHH You are king or queen
for the day. You might be a bit con-
fused about a property investment,
a domestic matter or a relative.
Worry less. Focus on where you
can make a difference. A meeting
is important. TonighT: whaT makes
you happy.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
HH You might need some down-
time. If you can, take a personal day.
Otherwise, steer away from crowds.
You also might misread someone’s
comment. Focus on work. Check in
with a parent. TonighT: be unavailable.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
HHHH Emphasize what you want.
You might need to make some calls
and do research. Friends prove to
be most supportive. You have what
it takes. The only area you could slip
up in is fnancial. TonighT: enJoy your
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
HHH You might not be sure which
way to go. Even when others give
you a strong sense of direction, you
get confused. Delegate or ask for
help, knowing that you aren’t 100
percent present. Relax with a part-
ner or associate. TonighT: geT home as
soon as possible.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
HHHH Do not follow your instincts
right now. Go for facts and informa-
tion, and fnd experts. Ask a question
rather than make an assumption.
Detach and take the high road. Don’t
listen to gossip. TonighT: leT your mind

The AssociATed Press
NEW YORK - Break out your
iPods: Harry Potter is going
J.K. Rowling, once publish-
ing’s greatest holdout against the
computer age, has made all six
Potter novels available for audio
downloads. In a message posted
yesterday on her Web site, Row-
ling said she was concerned
about online piracy, included
bootleg editions for which the
original text was altered.
“Many Harry Potter fans have
been keen for digital access for a
while, but the deciding factor for
me in authorizing this new ver-
sion is that it will help combat
the growing incidents of piracy
in this area,” Rowling wrote.
“There have been a number of
incidents where fans have stum-
bled upon unauthorized fles be-
lieving them to be genuine and,
quite apart from the fact that
they are illegal, the Harry Potter
content of these can bear very
little resemblance to anything
I’ve ever written!”
The digital audiobooks are
being released by the Random
House Audio Trade Group,
her current audio publisher.
They can be purchased through
Apple’s iTunes store for prices
ranging from $32.95 for a single
book to $249 for the whole se-
ries, which, according to Ran-
dom House, includes a “full
color digital booklet” and “pre-
viously unreleased readings” by
Neil Blair, a lawyer with Row-
ling’s literary agency, said yester-
day that there were no current
plans for Potter e-books.
Rowling’s fantasy series, most
recently “Harry Potter and the
Half-Blood Prince,” has sold
more than 200 copies world-
wide in print editions and more
than 5 million as audiobooks,
narrated by Grammy winner Jim
Dale. But up to now the author
had only permitted paper and
traditional audio releases, mak-
ing her work a favorite for online
pirates, although illegal sales are
believed to be relatively tiny.
Helped by the iPod boom,
digital audiobooks are already
one of publishing’s hottest sec-
tors, with sales nearly quadru-
pling between 2001 and 2003,
to more than $18 million, ac-
cording to the Audio Publishers
“It’s very exciting that an au-
diobook both critically acclaimed
and commercially successful is
fnally available to the very broad
audience of people who enjoy
downloading,” said association
president Mary Beth Roche.

Kansan senior sportswriter Daniel
Berk will give updates on the Big 12
Early Season Test
The game of the week this
weekend will be Texas at Ohio
State. The Longhorns will travel
to Columbus, Ohio, to do battle
with the Buckeyes for the frst
time in the schools’ histories.
Texas enters the game ranked
second in the coaches poll, and
Ohio State enters the game
ranked fourth in the country.
Texas football coach Mack
Brown said Ohio State would be
a diffcult opponent, but his team
would be up for the challenge.
“This is a fun week in Texas,”
Brown said. “We are excited
about going up to play at Ohio
State. Ohio State won 22 of its
last 23 home games and has
never lost at night, so it will be a
challenge. This is a great test for
us and a great challenge for the
Big 12 and Big 10 Conferences.”
Ohio State opened its season
last week with a 34-14 win over
Miami of Ohio. Texas was also
victorious in week one, defeat-
ing Louisiana-Lafayette 60-3.
New quarterback in Norman
After dropping their frst
game of the year, the Oklahoma
Sooners made a quarterback
change. Junior quarterback Paul
Thompson got the starting nod
last week, but will be the team’s
backup this weekend, when
Oklahoma plays host to Tulsa.
Rhett Bomar, a freshman who
took a redshirt last season, will
start in Thompson’s place. Thomp-
son went 11 for 26 in comple-
tions, accumulating 109 yards and
throwing one interception against
TCU last week. Bomar saw limited
action in the frst game and went 2
for 5 in completions for 19 yards.
Sophomore running back Adri-
an Peterson struggled last week,
rushing the ball 22 times for 63
yards. It had been reported that
Peterson suffered a high ankle
sprain during the TCU game, but
Oklahoma football coach Bob
Stoops said Peterson was fne and
walking around early in the week.
Smith returns to old form
Missouri senior quarterback
Brad Smith was named Big 12
Offensive Player of the Week after
he threw for 317 yards and four
touchdowns in a 44-17 win over
Arkansas State. Smith also rushed
the ball 12 times for 95 yards.
Smith became the third quar-
terback in NCAA history to
have over 6,000 yards passing
and over 3,000 rushing yards
in his career. Smith ranks sec-
ond in the Big 12 with 9,895
total yards gained in his career.
Former Texas Tech quarterback
Kliff Kingsbury is frst with
12,263 yards.
Missouri football coach Gary
Pinkel said he was pleased with
Smith’s frst game.“Brad Smith
had been waiting for this game
since last January, and there was
no guy in our camp who wanted
to get back on the feld and get
respect for the team than Brad,”
Pinkel said.
Missouri will take on New
Mexico at home on Saturday,
but will do it without junior
linebacker Marcus Bacon. Ba-
con was suspended indefnitely
following an arrest last weekend
for driving while intoxicated.
Early wake up call
Kansas State will travel to
Huntington, W. Va., to take on
Marshall Saturday. The game
will be on ESPN 2 at 9:30 a.m.
Kansas State football coach
Bill Snyder said the coaches
have been trying to get things
accomplished quickly for the
early start time. Snyder said this
would be the earliest game he
has ever coached.
The Wildcats enter the game 1-0
following a 35-21 victory over Flor-
ida International last Saturday.

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.

Sisters of St. Joseph to help you find
out if you’ve truly been called.

Cornish steps up in opener
t Moore sports
The Kansas football team
didn’t show much offensive
frepower in its opener against
Florida Atlantic, who Sports
Illustrated ranked as the third
worst Division I team.
But there were a few bright
spots on the offensive side of the
ball. The player that turned the
most heads Saturday was junior
running back Jon Cornish, who
has spent more time in coach
Mark Mangino’s doghouse than
on the feld during his career as
a Jayhawk.
(What evidence do you have
to prove that?)
Cornish ran for 45 yards on
only four carries. Kansas’ starting
tailback, senior Clark Green, had
a serviceable game, running for
107 yards. Green is a guy that’s
durable and will run for four
to fve yards on every carry. He
looked lighter on his feet Satur-
day and appeared to have stayed
away from the Krispy Kremes
during the off-season.
But Green still lacks speed
and is not going to bust the
big one, as Cornish showed he
could do with his fourth quarter
27-yard touchdown. Cornish’s
fourth-quarter run was the play
of the day on Saturday. He also
dropped some jaws with his sec-
ond-quarter run, where he col-
lided with FAU safety Kris Bar-
tels and dropped Bartels like a
bad habit.
Hopefully Cornish caught
Mangino’s attention on Satur-
day. Kansas’ offense pretty much
stunk out loud against FAU.
With his inaccurate passing and
poor decision-making, starting
quarterback Adam Barmann
guaranteed himself a prime spot
on the sideline for the rest of the
Senior quarterback Brian
Luke threw the ball better than
Barmann, but his receivers,
with the exception of sopho-
more tight end Derek Fine,
looked less than stellar. The
equipment manager needs to
look into purchasing the re-
ceivers new gloves, preferably
sticky ones.
With a passing game that
won’t be much better than last
season’s, the offense is going to
need big plays from the running
game. Cornish can deliver long
runs and deserves more car-
ries. He has the combination of
speed, size, power and elusive-
ness that all great running backs
Cornish may lack expe-
rience, but these next two
games against cupcake oppo-
nents are the times for him to
get experience. The reason it
has taken Cornish so long to
get on the field is that he hails
from Canada, which isn’t ex-
actly football country. Cor-
nish was behind the learning
curve when he arrived in Law-
rence, but now he is ready to
Green is a solid back. He
should remain the starter, but
the offense will beneft in the
long run if Green and Cornish
share the running responsibili-
ties 50-50.
It’s no secret that the reason
the Jayhawks were unable to
hold leads in the fourth quarter
last season was that the defense
spent too much time on the
feld. With Green and Cornish,
the KU offense has two solid
backs that can eat up clock and
rack up yards.
Cornish proved he’s for real
Saturday. Now give him the
damn ball.
F Moore is a Shawnee junior

continued from page 12a
Mangino said he approached
team physician Larry Magee
about the idea and Magee sup-
ported it. Mangino received
funding from the athletic de-
partment for the tests.
He wasn’t sure how many
teams used these tests, but said
that Magee said the teams that did
were probably in the minority.
“I go into these homes and I
recruit these kids and tell their
parents that we are going to take
good care of them,” Mangino
said. “With all the issues that
have come up in recent years
with athletes, I thought it was
the right thing to do.”
Football Notes:
Mangino did not announce who
his starting quarterback would be
for Saturday’s game against Appa-
lachian State. He said it would be
a game-time decision. Mangino
said junior wide receiver Jona-
than Lamb would miss signif-
cant time because of an injury.

Although he has the skills
of a guard, the 6-foot-8 Downs
will most likely play at the small
forward position for the Kansas
“He has a lot of bounce and
he can shoot and he is really a
skilled player,” Self said.
The biggest knock on Downs’
game is that he’s too thin, and of
course, too quiet.
At 190 pounds, Downs knows
he has to get stronger if he wants
to earn minutes during the phys-
ical Big 12 conference games.
When he came to Kansas this
summer, he weighed about 180
pounds, but he worked hard in
the weight room to add muscle.
Eating his favorite meal of fried
chicken and mashed potatoes
probably didn’t hurt either.
“The biggest thing about Mi-
cah will be how he can adjust to
a stronger more physical game
because he is such a thin kid,”
Self said. “With strength comes
better defense, better rebound-
ing, those sorts of things. He
wants to be a player. He just has
to get stronger.”
Self would also like to see
Downs get more aggressive. He
said Downs’ passive personality
was refected a great deal in his
“Probably too much so,” Self
said. “I think Micah is not as ag-
gressive as he should be on the
court. I think he turns down
open shots. I think he doesn’t
play with the tenacity that he
needs to play with consistently.
But I also think part of that is
just his personality and how he
has played.”
As Downs becomes more
comfortable off the court he will
become more assertive on it,
Self said.
Downs met all of the players
on his visit to Kansas in May
2004, so he said he felt wel-
comed right away. A devoted
Christian, Downs said he some-
times had long talks with Chris-
tian Moody and Stephen Vinson
about their faith.
“I have a relationship with
everyone on the team,” Downs
said. “But I have a lot in com-
mon with those guys.”
He doesn’t like to go out, so
Downs spends time hanging out
with his teammates over com-
petitive games of NCAA Foot-
ball 2006 on PlayStation 2.
“I like to, you know, just do
what guys do,” Downs said. “Sit
around, play video games and
talk friendly trash.”
He is a little homesick and he
misses his girlfriend of almost
a year, Natanya. But he said he
had enough to keep him busy
until the season gets here.
Right now, he sports an or-
thopedic boot on his left foot
— he suffered a minor sprain
to his left ankle at one of last
week’s practices — but Downs
said he was eager to get the sea-
son started. A trip to Maui to
face Arizona in Kansas’ fourth
game of the season will be an
early test for the freshman.
“I have always wanted to go
to Hawaii,” Downs said. “That
will be a blast.”
He knows it won’t all be fun
and games though. The Jay-
hawks are stacked with young
talent at the guard position, and
with the addition of Brandon
Rush, Downs now has one more
person to battle for minutes. Self

His intensity and energy is
what Kemp’s teammates know
him for. Kevin Kane, senior
linebacker, said Kemp’s energy
rubbed off on the other defen-
sive players.
“He’s a linebacker in the sec-
ondary,” Kane said. “He likes to
run around and hit people. It’s a
great feeling to watch him come
out of the defensive backfeld
and lay somebody out.”

Sophomore place kicker
Scott Webb has always been
known for his accuracy, but his
power is what had fans turning
their heads last Saturday.
Webb drilled a career long
43-yard feld goal, and all six of
his kickoffs sailed into the end
zone, including one that split
the uprights.
“He’s had a great offseason
in the weight room and is much
stronger than he was a year ago,”
Kansas football coach Mark
Mangino said. “That is pretty
obvious when you see him kick
the ball. It’s got some distance to
it and some height and the kick-
offs are strong too.”
Mangino credited Webb’s dis-
tance to the offseason condition-
ing program in which Webb par-
ticipated just like any other player.
“They lift, squat, and run and
do the same exact out-of-sea-
son programs as the lineback-
ers, fullback and the receivers,”
Mangino said.
Webb said part of the reason
he had been more successful
was because he was more com-
fortable on the feld and had an
extra year of experience. The 43-
yarder that Webb hit on Satur-
day probably would have fallen
short last year, but Webb doesn’t
feel that is because his distance
has improved from a year ago.
“It is just that I have become
more consistent with my dis-
tance,” he said. “Sometimes I had
trouble consistently hitting dis-
tance. I think I have gotten better
at the range and accuracy.”
Last season, Webb only kicked
extra points and short feld goals
and was perfect on 29 for 29 of
those attempts. After the depar-
ture of former kicker Johnny Beck,
Webb has been given all feld goal
duties as well as kickoff responsi-
bilities. There is little competition
for Webb’s starting spot.
“I like competition,” he said. “I
miss Johnny Beck, he is a great guy.
He made me better. But it was real
fun to get out there with no compe-
tition, that’s for sure,” Webb said.
Mangino recruited Webb out of
Tulsa, Okla., and was impressed
with his abilities in high school.

Almost everything about Mi-
cah Downs is quiet — from the
way his eyes hang low when he’s
introduced to someone for the
frst time, to the way he talks,
just above a whisper.
Downs could easily go un-
noticed in a large crowd or in
the classroom, but on the hard-
wood, he is hard to miss.
Put him behind a three-point
arc and tell him to shoot a bas-
ketball and it’s apparent Downs
will be one of the Jayhawks’ best
shooters this season. Invite him
to hit the town on Friday night
and he’ll probably say he would
prefer to stay home and watch
“Friday Night Lights.”
“When I’m not working out, I
am just kind of lazy,” he said. “I
like to lay around and watch TV
and take a lot of naps.”
Downs was sleeping the oth-
er night when he heard sounds
coming from the living room.
Tired as he was, Downs rolled
out of bed, a little creeped out
by the suspicious clatter coming
from his living room at 2 a.m.
Next thing he knew, he heard
a roar of laughter, a door slam
and two sets of footsteps running
down the hall. Typical. It was just
fellow freshman basketball players
Mario Chalmers and Julian Wright
playing another one of their prac-
tical jokes with Downs as victim.
Downs is the easiest one to pick
on, Chalmers and Wright said.
“If you do something to Micah,
he just gets mad,” Chalmers said.
“But if I mess with Julian, I know
he is going to try to get me back.”
Downs really didn’t say much
about it the next day, Wright said.
“Probably, just because he is
so quiet,” Wright said. “Really the
only time Micah says anything is
when we’ve messed with him.”
His teammates might not be
so quick to mess with him on the
court. Not only does Downs have
an impressive jump shot, but Kan-
sas coaches are impressed with
his ability to create his own shot
and get his teammates involved
with his passing ability.
A McDonald’s All-American,
Downs averaged 25 points and
12 rebounds during his senior
season at Juanita High School
in Kirkland, Wash.

A slow offensive start by Delta
Chi One was too much for the team
to overcome as they fell to Team Re-
dell by a score of 13-7 on Tuesday at
Shenk Sports Complex.
Both teams played hard, but in the end,
Team Redell had the offense required to
come out with the victory. The frst half
was a defensive battle as both teams were
held scoreless. Team Redell’s quarterback,
Sean Anderson, Overland Park senior,
had many long passes to move the ball
down the feld but could not convert the
drives into points. At the end of the frst
half, Team Redell drove down the feld
but was stopped short of scoring when
the defense knocked a pass down in the
end zone. Team Redell came out strong in
the second half. The team had an impres-
sive drive down the feld that involved
multiple lateral passes. That drive led to a
touchdown pass from Anderson to Bron-
son Eldridge, Kansas City, Kan., junior.
Team Redell was not done scoring.
Anderson marched the team down the
feld and threw a touchdown pass to
Joel Dreiling, Overland Park senior.
The team converted the extra point
when Anderson found Casey Wright,
Overland Park senior, in the end zone.
Delta Chi One was not about to give
up. The team fred back with its own
scoring drive that included a touch-
down pass by quarterback Lance Mall,
Clay Center sophomore, to Mike Jevons,
Manhattan senior. Mall ran in the extra
point to pull within a touchdown.
Delta Chi One thought it had a chance
to beat Team Redell in the closing minutes
when Charlie Black, Overland Park se-
nior, intercepted a pass from Team Ridell.
But before they could even the score, time
expired and Team Redell celebrated the
victory. After the game, Wright and Team
Redell said they were ready to take on the
Kansas football team.
“Team Redell, Memorial Stadium,
be there,” Wright said.

It’s taken three seasons, two
positions and more than 30
games, but Jerome Kemp is f-
nally where he wants to be.
The junior safety from Wich-
ita came to Kansas in 2002 as a
running back and took a red-
shirt season. For the past two
seasons, Kemp has served main-
ly as a backup safety and has
started only one game.
Kemp, however, was given
the starting nod for the season
opener against Florida Atlan-
tic last week and took advan-
tage of this opportunity. He
led the team with eight solo
tackles, including a couple of
bone-crushing hits that came
at the line of scrimmage.
“It’s been a long road to get to
where I’m at now,” Kemp said.
“The path that I have taken has
obviously paid off. Starting the very
frst game and the spot that I’m in is
exactly where I want to be.”
Both Kansas coach Mark
Mangino and Kemp’s teammates
took notice of Kemp’s strong
frst-game performance.
“Overall, I really liked his
effort and intensity,” Mangino
said. “I like how he played with
some fre in him.”

Kansas football coach Mark
Mangino announced yester-
day that freshman quarterback
Kerry Meier had been cleared
to practice without restrictions
beginning on Monday.
The team’s medical staff deter-
mined Meier has Wolff-Parkin-
son-White Syndrome, a disorder
that affects the electrical system
of the heart, Mangino said.
Meier went to the hospital Fri-
day for a non-surgical procedure.
“I would be lying if I told you
it wasn’t an awfully tense day
here on Friday,” Mangino said.
“We are playing our frst game
the next day and we are all con-
cerned about Kerry.”
Meier returned to the hospi-
tal Tuesday for another test, but
another procedure wasn’t nec-
essary, Mangino said.
“Monday he will be back with
football, which he loves to do,”
Mangino said.
The Meiers were grateful for
the positive outcome, they said
in a statement released after
Mangino’s announcement.
“As we have learned, both the
physical and the mental heart of
an athlete is God’s most pre-
cious gift,” the Meiers said.
The syndrome was detected
during health tests all frst-year
players undergo when they en-
ter the football program.
Mangino said Meier hadn’t
shown any signs of the disease
before the tests.
“The doctors were very con-
fident and he was worked on
by an excellent staff. He was
in very good care, a very good
team of doctors,” Mangino
In the spring of 2004, Mangi-
no implemented a policy requir-
ing all incoming players to re-
ceive an electrocardiogram and
an echocardiogram.
“We are also very appre-
ciative of the efforts by the
University of Kansas, Coach
Mangino, the athletic train-
ing staff, coaches and doctors
to insure that our student ath-
letes are screened and tested to
discover conditions that may
otherwise go undetected,” the
Meier family said.
Mangino said he required
these tests because of the
health incidents — some fatal
— athletes have faced around
the country.
