The sTudenT vOice since 1904
By Steve Lynn
Kansan staff writer
The line that normally allows
only a slow trickle of patrons inside
The Hawk on weekends was non-
existent about 11:30 p.m. Friday,
as patrons sporadically entered the
nearly empty bar.
The bar, 1340 Ohio St., has
had 17 alcohol-related violations
in two-and-a-half years, said co-
owner Tom Devlin. Devlin and his
partner John Heleniak could soon
have their liquor license revoked.
“There are rumors out there
that Tom and I are in jail and the
bar’s closed,” Heleniak said.
Evidence about minor-in-
possession citations issued by
Lawrence Police Department
and Kansas Alcoholic Beverage
Control offcers at The Hawk
was presented at a hearing last
One violation could result in a
fne of up to $1,000 and a suspen-
sion or revocation of an establish-
ment’s liquor license, said Brad
Burke, assistant attorney general at
the ABC.
Burke would not comment on
why The Hawk had stayed open so
long with so many violations.
Heleniak said The Hawk paid
a $10,000 fne for three minor-in-
possession violations two-and-a-
half years ago.
Burke said if the judge, ABC
Director Tom Groneman, ruled
against The Hawk, its owners
could appeal the decision.
Two months could pass be-
fore Groneman makes a decision,
Burke said.
Burke would not comment
on specifc details of the case.
Heleniak, owner since 1998,
said he and Devlin would spend
as much money as needed to save
their license. Heleniak and Dev-
lin said they disputed the part of
Kansas law that says a bar cannot
“unknowingly permit the posses-
sion or consumption of alcoholic
liquor or cereal malt beverage by
a minor.”
Fake IDs can be diffcult to catch,
Devlin said. Every ID in question
had a picture of the person who
presented the ID to bouncers.
“It’s only fair if the person knows
they sold to a minor,” Heleniak
Devlin said The Hawk still has
a good compliance rate, the ABC’s
measurement of how often minors
are turned away.

Fake IDs threaten bar
By eric Sorrentino
Kansan staff writer
Former University of Kansas
softball player
Jackie Vasquez
is suing the Uni-
versity and sev-
eral associated
individuals after
being kicked off
the team, As-
sociate Athlet-
ics Director Jim
Marchiony said.
Marchiony said Vasquez was
removed from the team because
of misconduct regarding assistant
coach Jennifer Sewell’s e-mail ac-
Albert Lopes, Vasquez’s attor-
ney, did not return calls seeking
comment over the weekend.
Sewell borrowed Vasquez’s
computer last semester and did
not sign out adequately to pre-
vent anyone from accessing her
account, Marchiony said. He said
Vasquez then accessed Sewell’s e-
mail and read e-mails about play-
ers and coaches, and that’s why
she was kicked off the team.
Marchiony said Vasquez
stated in the lawsuit she was
removed from the team in re-
taliation for her and two other
teammates talking to Athletics
Director Lew Perkins about an
incident with Kansas softball
coach Tracy Bunge.
Marchiony said Bunge had
players shower in their uni-
forms, in order to motivate them
after a loss. The 1996 Olympic
softball team used a similar tac-
tic, Marchiony said.
Vasquez fled fve complaints
to the KU Equal Opportunity
Offce, one of them claiming
sexual harassment was involved
in the incident, Marchiony said.
Marchiony said the other two
players who went to Perkins were
not kicked off the team after talk-
ing to him. Perkins knew about
the shower incident and ad-
dressed Bunge before the players
approached him, Marchiony said.
Senior second baseman Jessica
Moppin said the softball team had
moved on from the incident and
would not comment further. Bunge
also would not comment.

Melissa Cooper uses two pre-
scription drugs every day.
Instead of stopping by
Watkins Memorial Health
Center or Walgreens phar-
macy, Cooper renews her pre-
scriptions via the Internet.
Cooper, Philadelphia freshman,
said she used the Internet for re-
flls because it was cheaper and
more convenient.
“It’s easier for me just to go
online and refll it, and then it
just comes to you in the mail,”
Cooper said.
A 2004 National Consum-
ers League study of 1,013
Americans 18-and-over said
15 percent of the respondents
bought drugs online and one-
third had done so without a
Survey respondents who
used the Internet wanted more
government control over online
providers. Of those surveyed,
60 percent agreed that the
Food and Drug Administration
should approve any dispenser
of prescription drugs.
When consumers utilize the
Web for drugs, they are often
at risk for receiving counterfeit
Since 2000, the
FDA has investi-
gated more than 20
cases of counterfeit
prescriptions every
year, the NCL study found.
In the 1990s, the FDA investi-
gated an average of fve counter-
feit cases per year.
Cooper said she was not wor-
ried about counterfeit drugs be-
cause she used,
which is recommended by her
i ns ur anc e
company. She
was required to
send in her pre-
scription and fll out
paperwork before be-
coming eligible to refll
her prescription online.
Regardless of the dangers,
more Americans are buying
from the Internet. IMS Consult-
ing, a frm that provides analysis
and intelligence on the pharma-
ceutical industry, estimated that
online sales totaled $407 million
in 2003, up from $160 million the
year before.
Sally Heilman, a pharmacist
at Orchards Drug, 1410 Kasold
Drive, said that younger genera-
tions were utilizing the Internet
more for prescription drugs.
“The No. 1 reason is to save
money,” Heilman said.
Heilman said there were is-
sues to consider before choos-
ing an online provider.
“I think probably one of the
biggest things is that people
don’t have someone that’s sort
of watching out for them as far
as drug interactions. They’re
dealing with a Web site and
I think there are some issues
there,” she said.
Heilman said she had received
calls from people inquiring about
drugs they probably ordered over
the Internet; however, she can’t
help them because she has no per-
sonal records and consulting with
them would present a liability.
Orchards Drug has not seen
much change in the amount of
business they receive, but Heil-
man said that was most likely
because the demographic that
she saw most often was older
and less computer savvy.

Two speakers will kick off
Jayhawk Communication’s sev-
enth annual Lee Denim Day for
breast cancer awareness at the
University of Kansas.
Sheryle D’Amico and Ju-
lie Cowdin will speak about
breast cancer survival and
prevention at 7 p.m. tonight
in Woodruff Auditorium at the
Kansas Union.
D’Amico is an oncologist,
a physician who studies, di-
agnoses, and treats cancerous
tumors, at Lawrence Memo-
rial Hospital, and Cowdin is
a breast cancer survivor who
was treated at LMH.
According to the American
Cancer Society, 40,000 Ameri-
can women will die this year of
breast cancer and breast cancer
will be diagnosed in 200,000
Amy Bainum, Dover senior,
said she would attend the speech
because she has witnessed frst-
hand the detrimental effects of
breast cancer.
Her mother was diagnosed in
2002, when Bainum was a se-
nior in high school.
After going through chemo-
therapy treatment and having
both breasts removed, her moth-
er remains alive today, with the
cancer in remission.
Watching her mother go
through all the treatments was
an eye-opening experience be-
cause she witnessed her mother
lose a body part that society
places great emphasis on, Bai-
num said.
“I learned that being a female
isn’t just about having breasts,
even though we place so much
emphasis on it in our society,”
Bainum said. “It’s so much more
than that.”
Jayhawk Communications,
the public relations frm of the
KU Public Relations Student
Society of America, will spon-
sor activities to raise awareness
and money for breast cancer re-
search this week leading up to
Denim Day on Friday.
Group members will pass
out information about breast
cancer, collect donations and
display a memory board for
people to remember affected
friends and family members.
They will have booths Tuesday
through Thursday on the lawn
in front of Stauffer-Flint Hall,
between Watson Library and
Wescoe Hall, and at Mrs. E’s on
Wednesday and Thursday.
Lee National Denim Day
occurs on the frst Friday of
October, which is also Breast
Cancer Awareness Month. It is
the nation’s largest, single-day
fundraiser to support the fght
against breast cancer.
Denim Day encourages peo-
ple nationwide to wear jeans
in exchange for a $5 donation
to the Susan G. Komen Breast
Cancer Foundation.
All money collected will go
the foundation. , Denim Day
has raised $52 million and
has been held nationally for
10 years, according to www. Last year, Jayhawk
Communications collected
about $1,500.
Jarrod Morgenstern, Over-
land Park sophomore and as-
sistant director for Jayhawk
Communications, said because
most KU students wear jeans
anyway, the group wouldn’t
make people wearing jeans give
donations on Friday.

Oct. 3, 1937
The University Daily Kansan reported that sophomore Donald
Henry had been killed in combat in the Spanish Civil War. Henry
had been fghting alongside the leftist Loyalists in Spain against
General Francisco Franco’s right-wing Nationalists. The incident
led to an investigation into what had turned a Dodge City-born
student into a radical. The Loyalists eventually fell, leading to
Franco’s fascist regime. It was decided that the Depression-era
circumstances had led to increased political radicalism on the col-
lege campus. An investigation by the Board of Regents found that
while communist groups were active at KU, no staff or faculty had
actively supported the ideology.
Oct. 3, 1946
Smith Hall (not the religious studies building), a Mormon house
of worship, was converted into living quarters for roughly 100
male KU students. This arrangement lasted two years. The housing
shortage was the result of former World War II soldiers returning
home to take advantage of the GI Bill. The living conditions in the
hall were greatly similar to barracks conditions. After its usefulness
expired, the building was returned to the Mormon Church. Cur-
rently, the St. John campus of Lawrence Catholic School stands on
the grounds.
Oct. 6, 1911
More than 800 female students rallied for female residence halls
at the University. Originally, the school did not operate its own res-
idence halls, and students were forced to fnd their own lodging.
Finding appropriate lodging was often more diffcult for women
because many people thought women required more emotional
support and supervision than men. Alberta Corbin, a German pro-
fessor at KU, represented the faculty in the mission to secure qual-
ity housing for female students. The students and faculty searched
for support and raised money. In 1923, Corbin Hall was opened,
housing 107 women, a social director and a house manager.

A new organization could
grab a piece of the spotlight in
this year’s Rock Chalk Revue.
The scholarship halls have
formed a group and plan to au-
dition for a chance to perform in
the March show.
Rock Chalk is open to anyone
in a housing group, but has be-
come associated primarily with
greek organizations. The schol-
arship halls last participated
three years ago.
“There is a pride element,”
said Emily Copeland, McPher-
son freshman. “We can show off
our talents just like our peers” in
greek chapters.
A board of six individuals
with backgrounds in performing
arts was created to produce the
20-minute performance.
The group will audition against
10 groups of greek chapters.
Lindsay Eagle, Kansas City,
Mo., sophomore, said the learn-
ing experience would beneft the
halls in the long run.
“No matter what the out-
come, this will be the frst step,”
she said. “We can improve in the
years to come.”
Nicole Kansier, Lincoln, Neb.,
senior and executive producer for
Rock Chalk, said having a group
outside of the greek community
would help increase ticket sales
and beneft the United Way.
She said she would like to see
the scholarship halls continue
their involvement in the future.
“I’m glad this year is going to
be different and I hope this be-
comes a tradition,” she said.
The scholarship hall board has
worked to meet weekly deadlines
before the fnal deadline on Nov.
4. The group will put together a
script complete with lyrics, cho-
reography, character sketches
and a compact disc with songs
for the Rock Chalk directors.
The fve groups selected will be
announced Nov. 21.
Copeland said she spent be-
tween six and 10 hours last week
preparing lyrics for the musical
portion of the show.
“It’s a little nerve-racking. It’s
a lot of work but I really enjoy
it,” she said.
With little previous experi-
ence with Rock Chalk, the board
pulled out yearbooks, videos
and notebooks from years past
to get an idea of what exactly
goes into preparing for the per-
formance. Each group usually
puts in more than 100 hours to
prepare before being selected to
perform in the show itself.
While only a freshman, Cope
land said she had just as much
knowledge about Rock Chalk as
the senior members.
“We had to start totally from
scratch. I’ve learned everything
from the beginning,” she said.
This year’s Rock Chalk,
themed ‘Breaking Through,’ will
take place March 9 through 11.

New cast tries out for Rock Chalk
By louis Mora
Kansan staff writer
Former members of Sigma
Nu fraternity have registered
as a housing group — called
Friends Incorporated — in or-
der to participate in this year’s
Rock Chalk Revue.
As a housing group, Friends
Inc. can continue to work
with Kappa Delta sorority,
the former partner of Sigma
Nu. The new group is called
Kappa Delta and Friends. If
the former members of Sig-
ma Nu had not reorganized
as Friends Inc, Kappa Delta
would have needed to plan
and fund its entry alone.
The national organization of
Sigma Nu fraternity revoked the
charter of its University of Kan-
sas chapter about a month ago.
Justin Lindsay, Overland
Park senior and member of
Friends Inc., said making sure
the group took the proper steps
and was able to reorganize was
important to the members of
Friends Inc. and Kappa Delta.
“It was important that we not
ditch out on them,” he said.
Friends Inc. can participate
because Rock Chalk is open to
any housing group on campus.
As part of the restructuring,
the men had to adopt a new
name and come up with a list
of members, and select a presi-
dent and vice president.
Lindsay said the process
took a couple of days because
the group spoke with members
of the Interfraternity Council
and the vice provost to ensure
the proper steps were taken.
This year, Kappa Delta sere-
naded different fraternities to try
to attract a Rock Chalk partner.
Sigma Nu eventually agreed
to enter Rock Chalk with Kap-
pa Delta.
Members of Kappa Delta were
devastated to learn Sigma Nu
had lost its charter and would
be unable to participate in Rock
Chalk, said Caitlyn Lamport,
Sugarland, Texas, senior and
Kappa Delta president.
Amanda Naff, Lawrence se-
nior and member of Kappa Del-
ta, said the chapter was not far
along in planning when Sigma
Nu’s charter was revoked.
She said she was happy the
men made the effort to contin-
ue its participation.
We are nothing but proud to
be involved with this group of
guys,” she said.

NORMAN, Okla. — A Uni-
versity of Oklahoma student was
identifed Sunday as the person
who was killed in an explosion
near a packed football stadium,
authorities said Sunday.
The body is thought to be
that of Joel Henry Hinrichs III,
21, according to a news release
from Salvador Hernandez, spe-
cial agent in charge of the FBI in
Oklahoma. A student telephone
book lists Hinrichs with a per-
manent address in Colorado
Springs, Colo.
Hinrichs was killed when
an explosive device detonated
around 8 p.m. Saturday near
Oklahoma Memorial Stadium,
where more than 84,000 people
were watching Oklahoma play
Kansas State in a Big 12 Confer-
ence game.
There were no other reports
of injuries and OU President
David Boren said spectators
were never in danger.
Offcers cordoned off an area
west of the stadium and no one
was allowed to leave the stadi-
um immediately after the blast.
Spectators who wanted to leave
were allowed to go about 30
minutes later.
Boren initially said a police
bomb squad detonated explo-
sives found at the site of the
blast, but later said further in-
vestigation determined that the
second detonation was done by
the bomb squad to ensure there
was not a second device.
Investigators have no infor-
mation to suggest there is any
additional threat posed by oth-
ers related to the explosion,
Hernandez said.

The new logo unveiled by
the University of Kansas earlier
this year bears a marked simi-
larity to one used by a smaller
Pennsylvania university that
also calls itself KU.
Kutztown University, located
in Kutztown, an eastern Penn-
sylvania community northwest
of Philadelphia, has been using
its current logo for about two
years — and it cost a lot less
than Kansas paid for the one it
unveiled earlier this year.
Both logos feature the letters
“K” and “U” in a variation of the
Trajan font. There are differences
— the Kutztown version is thin-
ner and more stylized, with the
extension of the “K” swooping
almost across the full width of the
“U.” The Kansas logo has a “K”
that is extended just barely under-
neath the left side of the “U.”
Also, the tops of both letters
are on the same plane in the
Kansas version.
The Kutztown version has
a larger “K” whose upper left
branch extends over and a bit
above the left side of the “U.”
“They’re distinguishable, but
they’re also easily confusable,”
Kutztown University’s director
of university relations, Phillip
Breeze, told the Lawrence Jour-
nal-World after being asked to
look at an online version of the
Kansas logo.
“I don’t see the two schools
getting in a battle,” Breeze
said. “But if we don’t police
it, then it becomes public do-
main and we’re both hurting
then. I just think we need to
have the legal people chew on
this bone.”
David Johnston, director of
marketing at Kansas, said he
doubted anyone would confuse
the two schools.

Kansas basketball player
Julian Wright willingly let
his competition win for
Shots swished through
the net from all around the
basket. The 9-year-old com-
petition was barely waist
high on the 6-foot-8 fresh-
man forward, but all Wright
could do was smile.
“They’re having fun, that’s
what it’s all about,” he said.
Wright and nearly 75
other student athletes par-
ticipated in the second
annual “Hawks, Cops
and Kids” event Satur-
day morning at Anschutz
Sports Pavilion, sponsored
by Big Brothers/Big Sisters
of Douglas County, local
law enforcement and the
Kansas Athletics Depart-
The event taught nearly
165 children between the
ages of 8 and 10 about
avoiding drugs and alcohol
and living healthy lifestyles.
“I think the whole event
is great,” said Becki Carl-
Stutz, Big Brothers/Big
Sisters event coordinator.
“It’s really important for
all the kids to hear and
understand what the law
enforcement is saying.”
Police offcers provid-
ed information on safety
and the dangers of drugs
and alcohol at different
interactive stations. The
student athletes taught
fundamentals of several
sports, including football,
basketball and track. The
sports stations helped pro-
mote active lifestyles.
The event also provided
children the opportunity
to see law enforcement in
a positive light rather than
as intimidating fgures.
“They can realize that
they’re just regular peo-
ple,” said Mark Gdowski,
sophomore middle dis-
tance runner for the track
and feld team.
Wright said it was im-
portant to show the chil-
dren to exhibit enthusiasm
in all aspects of life. The
event helped him and fve
other players on the men’s
basketball team build a
connection with the com-
munity and provide a pos-
itive example.
“We want to show peo-
ple we’re about something,”
Wright said. “We’re not just
here to play basketball.”
Shaquina Mosley, junior
guard on the women’s bas-
ketball team, said the event
was a positive experience
because the children put
forth efforts in learning a
fundamental even if they
weren’t interested in that
particular skill.
“It’s really exciting,”
Mosley said. “These kids
are so open-minded and
open to anything.”
Mosley said the event also
allowed exposure for the
women’s basketball program
to the children. She said one
of the most important parts
of the event was providing
a positive example for chil-
dren. She said children typi-
cally look up to athletes and
the event is a good way for
student athletes to contrib-
ute to the community.
Mosley and Wright both
said it was not diffcult to
get fellow teammates to
wake up early one Satur-
day morning.
“It’s not every Saturday
morning that you can work
with kids and help the com-
munity,” Wright said.

TOPEKA — A birthday card
produced by Hallmark bears the title “CSI:

standing over a corpse, with one saying, “Looks
like he was bored to death.”
Though a company spokeswoman says Hall-

Bunten wasn’t laughing when he learned about the
“I fnd it offensive,” Bunten told The Topeka
Capital-Journal. “It’s probably drawn up by some-
body from West Virginia who hasn’t been here.”
The card refers to popular television dramas
about forensics experts who investigate crimes,
set in Las Vegas, Miami and New York. Inside
the card is the message, “Hope your birthday is

day he can do his job even with-
out the title and pledged to con-
tinue his close partnership with
House Speaker Dennis Hastert
in pushing the GOP’s agenda.
The Texas Republican known
for keeping colleagues in line
and raising prodigious amounts
of cash to help elect GOP can-
didates said he is only guilty of
working to defeat Democrats.
“But that’s not illegal,” he said.
Yet some House Republicans
said the fundraising conspiracy
case in Texas has plunged De-
Lay back into the GOP pack.
“He’s lost his offce. He’s lost
his staff. And he’s now basically
a rank-and-fle member who
has a lot of friends and will still
have infuence,” said Connecti-
cut Rep. Christopher Shays, a
moderate Republican.
Shays acknowledged he has
not been comfortable with De-
Lay as the No. 2 House GOP
leader, citing “continual acts
that border and go sometimes
beyond the ethical edge. They
may not be illegal, but he’s al-
ways pushing that ethical edge
to the limit.”
Democrats said their party
stands to gain if DeLay asserts
himself in the Republican lead-
ership and the GOP embraces
him. “I hope they continue to
let him go out and say just what
he’s saying,” said Democratic
Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mis-
sissippi, who joined Shays on
CNN’s “Late Edition.”
DeLay was charged Wednes-
day with conspiring with two
political associates to use corpo-
rate donations to support Texas
legislative candidates. House
rules require any member of the
elected leadership to step down
temporarily if indicted.
He has said he has done noth-
ing wrong, called the indictment “a
sham,” and denounced the Demo-
cratic prosecutor who pursued the
case as a “partisan fanatic.”
DeLay told “Fox News Sun-
day” he expected to dispense
quickly with the charges and
will serve as a close adviser to
Hastert, R-Ill., in promoting an
agenda that includes lowering
gas prices, cutting taxes and en-
forcing immigration laws.
“I get to continue my partnership
with the speaker,” DeLay said.
“The speaker and I have been
leading the House for, what,
eight years now. It’s because we
get along together, we think the
same. We are simpatico,” DeLay
Asked whether he would
return to the GOP leadership,
DeLay said, “Well, I hope so. I
can do my job with or without
the title. That doesn’t concern
But GOP Rep. David Dreier
of California, the House Rules
Committee chairman initially
recommended to take over
many of DeLay’s duties, said
on CBS’ “Face the Nation” that
DeLay “knows he’s not going to
run things.”
The indictment from a grand
jury in Austin, Texas, charged
that conspirators carried out a
fundraising scheme by having
the DeLay-founded Texans for
a Republican Majority Political
Action Committee send corpo-
rate money to the Republican
National Committee in Wash-
ington. The RNC then sent
back a like amount — $190,000
— to distribute to Texas candi-
DeLay said he allowed his
name to be used for fundrais-
ers and participated in several
of them, but vehemently denied
knowing about or intending any
illegal activity. Instead, he asked
that associates consult with law-
yers to make sure their activity
was proper, DeLay said.

glass-enclosed boat carrying tour-
ists on a senior citizens’ cruise
overturned Sunday on a calm
lake in upstate New York, killing
at least 21 people and sending
more than two dozen cold and
wet passengers to a hospital.
Authorities were investigat-
ing whether a large passing tour
boat created a wake that caused
the accident, Warren County
Sheriff Larry Cleveland said.
The 40-foot Ethan Allen capsized
around 3 p.m. on Lake George
about 50 miles north of Albany, N.Y.
in the Adirondack Mountains.
The accident apparently hap-
pened so fast that none of the
passengers was able to put on a
life jacket, Cleveland said.
Patrol boats that reached the
scene within minutes found
other boaters already pulling
people from the water. All pas-
sengers had been accounted for
within two hours.
Twenty-seven people were
taken to a hospital in nearby
Glens Falls. Some suffered bro-
ken ribs and some complaining
of shortness of breath. Five peo-
ple were to be admitted, hospital
spokesman Jason White said.
Police investigators were at
the hospital late Sunday.
Dorothy Warren, a resident
who said she brought blankets
and chairs to shore for survi-
vors, said one passenger told
her “she saw a big boat coming
close and she said, ‘Whoop-dee-
doo. I love a rocking boat.’”
Warren said the woman did not
know how she got out of the water
but said her mother was killed.
Many of the bodies were laid
out along the shore, and the site
was blocked off by police with
tarps. A hearse, police vehicles
and several sport utility vehicles
later began taking the dead from
the scene.
At the time of the accident,
the weather was clear and in
the 70s at Lake George, a long,
narrow body of water that is a
popular tourist destination.

I read the opinion page in the
Kansan every day. I’ll admit my
favorite part is the Free For All,
but I read the articles, too.
When I saw a headline that
mentioned my favorite jolly fat
man, a cheapskate with a tooth
fetish, and a female president, I
was reasonably interested. The
article was far from what I ex-
Miss Garlick states that there
has never been a female president,
and never will be. This struck me
as pretty screwy.
The first thing I thought was
that this was a self-fulfilling
prophecy. If women want a fe-
male president, but refuse to be-
lieve it is possible, women won’t
run, women won’t vote for her,
and we will therefore never have
a female president.
From the way Sara writes the
article, it’s unclear whether she
wants a female president or not,
but very clear that she won’t lift a
finger to make it happen.
Next, I thought “Our forefa-
thers would be disgusted!” That’s
right. Our country was not built
upon doubt and sullen accep-
tance. Our nation was not cre-
ated with “it hasn’t happened
before, and it never will” in mind.
No backwater colonies had ever
beaten England before, but we
did it anyway. What Sara suggests,
that women give up and quit, is
the opposite of the principles of
the United States.
I’m not saying there will or
should be a woman president.
Personally, I don’t think gen-
der really matters in that regard.
What I’m saying is that a quitter’s
attitude won’t make it happen. If
you want equality, Sara, do some-
thing about it. If you want things
to change, you can’t advocate
women giving perpetual figura-
tive blow jobs.
Of course, being a man, either
one works out fine for me, but,
pardon the pun, sometimes it’s
better to die on your feet than live
on your knees.

In the Sept. 28 Kansan, Andrew Soukup
writes of government efforts to help the vic-
tims of Hurricane Katrina, “If relying on the
government for help instead of on love and
faith bears any semblance to that sentiment,
then America has become the new Soviet
Bloc.” Mr. Soukup is a student at a publicly-
funded university, as am I.
I wonder why it’s okay for students pursu-
ing linguistics or pathology degrees to rely
on government handouts, but it’s Soviet-style
communism for the government to help Amer-
ican citizens whose homes were destroyed in
one of the worst natural disasters in American
Perhaps in a future letter Mr. Soukup, us-
ing his taxpayer-subsidized education, could
explain this to me.
✦ Rachel Robson
Baldwin City graduate student
I commend Andrew Soukup on his column
on Wednesday. It was a mistake for New Orleans
to depend on the federal government to prepare
for this disaster. Did the candidates take a posi-
tion on the levies before the disaster? Of course
not, because the voters didn’t care on a national
level. The people of New Orleans should have
elected their local government to prevent this
disaster, and the people of New Orleans should
have born the cost of improving the levies.
The success story amid this disaster is the re-
sponse of private organizations, and the char-
ity of private citizens. The proper role of the
government is limited to keep order to protect
people from crime, not to provide relief. Charity
requires giving of one’s free will, not forced taxa-
tion. After all, were you to donate money, would
you send it to FEMA or to the Red Cross?

A while back, a group of
Native Americans saw some
mascots as demeaning to their
culture, and they brought the
issue in front of the NCAA.
The NCAA and KU sports
are businesses, with television
contacts, endorsement deals,
merchandise, ticket sales- the
whole nine yards.
They are afraid of having
a bad image in the eye of the
public, which is why as soon
as controversy comes up, it is
quickly avoided. It’s all to pre-
vent the loss of sponsors.
What about fans being lost?
I do not think that is a pri-
mary concern to them, even
though they say it is all for
the fans. Money makes things
Programs like the Williams
Fund, which rewards better
seats to bigger donors, will
show you that.

Self on this topic. Even though
he is no longer an employee at

still has ties to that university

tee that he would like to see
a game scheduled between
Kansas and Illinois.
It would be good for the
game, and more importantly,
good for the fans.
I am asking people to voice
their opinion on this issue.
This scheduling require-
ment needs to be changed.
The argument made by some
out-spoken Native Americans
does not hold water.
A mascot’s purpose is to
engage the fans, especially the
younger ones who are more
interested in the mascot than
the actual game itself.

‘Suck factor’ on soldiers’ minds
t Military
By DeB Riechmann
The AssociATed Press
dent Bush is watching his frst
Supreme Court nominee, Chief
Justice John Roberts, take the
helm of the high court today
while weighing his options for
nominating a second justice
who also could shape the bench
for years to come.
“He’s still working,” White
House chief of staff Andy Card
said Sunday about the presi-
dent’s effort to choose a replace-
ment for retiring Justice Sandra
Day O’Connor. “Still consider-
ing lots of options.”
The White House will not dis-
close who is on Bush’s short list,
or hint when an announcement
will be made.
Legal experts who are in
touch with administration of-
fcials say the president is most
likely to choose a woman to
replace O’Connor, even though
many of the often-mentioned
candidates are white men.
There continues to be talk in
legal circles that he could pick
one of three longtime Bush
loyalists: White House counsel
Harriet Miers, the frst women
president of the Texas State Bar
and Bush’s former personal at-
torney; Attorney General Al-
berto Gonzales, Bush’s long-
time friend, who would be the
frst Hispanic on the court; and
corporate lawyer Larry Thomp-
son, who was the government’s
highest ranking black law en-
forcement offcial when he was
deputy attorney general during
Bush’s frst term.
Other candidates mentioned
most frequently in recent days
include conservative federal
appeals court judges J. Michael
Luttig, Priscilla Owen, Karen
Williams, Alice Batchelder and
Samuel Alito; Michigan Su-
preme Court justice Maura Cor-
rigan; and Maureen Mahoney,
a well-respected litigator before
the high court.
Justice Stephen Breyer, when
asked if he thought Bush should
appoint another woman, de-
fected the question, replying,
“For me to talk about the ap-
pointment process is a little
bit like ... seeing the recipe for
chicken a la King from the point
of view of the chicken.”
Appearing Sunday on ABC’s
“This Week,” Breyer said, “We’re
a big country, and there are peo-
ple of many different points of
view, and it’s helpful, not harm-
ful, to have a court made up of
people of diverse backgrounds,
points of view and so forth.”
Today, Bush is going to the
Supreme Court for a formal cer-
emony at which Roberts, who
was confrmed by the Senate
78-22 and sworn in at the White
House on Thursday, assumes the
role of chief justice. Following
tradition, Roberts will don his
robe for the frst time and take
the center seat last held by the
late former Chief Justice William
H. Rehnquist.

used her head to push the Cyclones

the season.
The Jayhawks failed to get on the
board in the frst half. Their only

forward Nicole Braman drove the
ball to the net for the frst time this

LUBBOCK, Texas — The Kan-
sas defense did all it could Saturday
to get a victory against No. 16 Texas
Tech, but it was the Kansas offense
that struggled en route to a 30-17 loss,
dropping the team’s record to 3-1.
The offense managed little more
than two yards per play in the frst
half. Kansas was down 20-0 at half-
time after accumulating 82 yards of
offense in the frst half.
“If you come down here in Lub-
bock, and your defense can keep you
within 23 points, your offense has to
score more points,” Kansas football
coach Mark Mangino said. “That’s
what we didn’t get done the way that
we would have liked.”
The offense had three turnovers,
including a fumble that resulted in a
Texas Tech touchdown. Senior quar-
terback Brian Luke ran an option
and pitched the football to senior
running back Clark Green. The pitch
got away from Green, allowing Texas
Tech to recover in the end zone and
gain a 17-0 lead.
Mangino used three quarterbacks
in the game, yet none were able to
get the Kansas offense moving.
“I didn’t think we were crisp at all
in the pass game,” Mangino said. “If
it wasn’t a misfre, it was a drop. If
it wasn’t a drop, it was not a really
well-run route. Those are correct-
able things and we will get those
things corrected.”
Luke started the game, but was re-
placed by junior quarterback Adam
Barmann for a series in the second
quarter. Mangino said he made the
switch to calm Luke down.
Mangino later inserted freshman
quarterback Marcus Herford into
the lineup to give the offense a spark.
None of the quarterback switches
moved Kansas down the feld.
Luke fnished 13-for-27 for 109
running yards, a touchdown and two
interceptions. Barmann was 8-for-10
for 45 yards, while Herford went 0-
of-1 passing.
“I think they are capable guys,”
Mangino said. “But someone is go-
ing to have to take charge, or we are
going to have to make some deci-
The Kansas defense, after allow-
ing a touchdown on the frst drive of
the game, buckled down for the rest
of the contest and provided Kansas
with good feld position.
Senior wide receiver Mark Sim-
mons said it was a mental problem
with the offense when it was not suc-
“It is pretty frustrating,” Simmons
said. “We know we can do it. We
have to continue to do it, just like
we do in practice.”
Kansas sustained its only lengthy
drive at the end of the third quarter.
The Jayhawks drove 73 yards and
Luke found Simmons for a touch-
down in the back of the end zone.
The score put the Jayhawks within
13 at 27-14. Simmons caught four
passes on the drive for 39 yards.
While the Jayhawks scored 17
points in the second half, the frst of
the two touchdowns was clearly be-
cause of the KU defense.
Senior defensive end Charlton
Keith recovered a fumble and re-
turned it 12 yards to the 11-yard line
at the beginning of the second half.
Junior running back Jon Cornish
then barreled through defenders on
a drive for an 11-yard touchdown.
Cornish fnished the day with 117
yards on 17 carries. It was the sec-
ond 100-yard rushing game of his
career and of the season.
After the opening drive, the KU
defense was able to get signifcant
pressure on Texas Tech quarterback
Cody Hodges.
Senior linebacker Brandon Perkins
recorded three tackles and a sack.
“As a defense, I think we did all right,”

Offense can’t play catch-up
t Football: 30-17
Kansas wide receiver Mark Simmons makes a touchdown reception in the third
quarter of the 30-17 Texas Tech victory Saturday in Lubbock, Texas.
LUBBOCK, Texas — One could criticize Mark
Mangino for a lot of what went wrong Saturday.
After having two weeks to prepare for Texas
Tech, the Kansas football coach’s defensive game
plan was ripped to shreds on the game’s opening
Later, after a Texas Tech feld goal, on the frst
play following the ensuing kick-off, the Kansas of-
fense committed a delay of game penalty and then
was whistled for a false start. When the Jayhawks
fnally got their play off — on frst and 20 from
the 10-yard line — senior quarterback Brian Luke
made an errant pitch that found its way into the
end zone. The Red Raiders fell on the football for
a no-work-needed touchdown.
Mangino’s musical chair-like quarterback ro-
tation was also baffing. Especially because each
one looked completely lost on the feld.
But for all of Mangino’s shortcomings on Satur-
day, he proved one thing: he has complete control
of his team.
Everything that could possibly go wrong for the
Jayhawks did in the frst half — an interception re-
turned for a touchdown was called back because
of an illegal block, and a fourth-down conversion
was taken away after the replay offcial decided
that Kansas was wrongly given a few extra inch-
es on a spot. Facing a 20-point halftime defcit,
Mangino convinced the Jayhawks to stick togeth-
er and fght back against a team that is known for
destroying opponents at home.
Nebraska and TCU, for example, both left Lub-
bock with 70 Texas Tech points on the scoreboard
last year. Texas Tech hung 59 points on Texas
A&M two years ago.
But Kansas refused to pack it in and stayed
within striking distance until falling by 13.
Not only did the Jayhawks make it a game in
the second half, but they were within one play of
taking control of the contest.
“Hats off to our defense. We were there at the
end,” senior wide receiver Mark Simmons said.
“A couple plays here and there, things might have
gone the other way.”
Late in the third quarter, Kansas had an open
path to the end zone on a Texas Tech fumble,
but when sophomore defensive tackle Eric But-
ler went to pick up the ball, his knee touched the
ground, ending the play. Kansas eventually settled
for a feld goal.
A touchdown would have pulled Kansas to
within 6 points, at 27-21, and the
Jayhawks would have had momentum frmly
on their side.
As it turned out, Kansas still had a shot in the
fourth quarter, but every time the defense handed
the offense a golden opportunity to mount a seri-
ous challenge, it couldn’t get over the hump.
Luke threw an interception on the frst play of
a drive with Kansas at midfeld trailing by only 10
points with more than 10 minutes remaining.

For the second consecutive
weekend, the Kansas softball
team rolled over its opponents
to win another tournament and
improve its preseason tourna-
ment record to 8-0.
Senior pitcher Serena Settle-
mier was the highlight of the
second of three games over the
weekend, recording a no-hit-
ter against Northern Colorado.
She also went 2-2 from the plate
with a home run, double and
two RBI in the 8-0 Kansas vic-
In the fourth inning, Settle-
mier sent a towering shot to left
feld that barely snuck inside the
foul pole for her frst home run
of the day. She said she always
tried to complement her pitch-
ing by producing offense.
“I do feel like I’ve been tak-
ing strides,” she said. “I always
like to help myself out when I’m
pitching and hitting and that’s
always good so that you can
contribute to the team.”
The game was stopped in the
bottom of the sixth inning when
Kansas scored its eighth run.
The mercy rule stops the game if
a team is winning by eight runs
or more after the ffth inning.
Playing through the rain,
Kansas cruised to a 6-0 victory

the way George stepped up after

The Kansas women’s tennis team struggled the
in the frst two days of the Hoosier Invitational in
Bloomington, Ind., this weekend before recover-
ing Sunday.
Five talented tennis teams — Indiana, Kansas
State, Louisiana State, Murray State and Notre
Dame — gave Kansas solid competition and many
long matches over the weekend.
The Hoosier Invitational singles portion had
fve tournaments or “fights.” There are eight com-
petitors per fight.
Sophomore Stephanie Smith scored the only
frst-round victory for the Jayhawks. She went on
to lose in the championship of Flight E in a close
match against Maria Perevoschikova of Kansas
State 3-6, 6-3, 0-1 (9).
Sophomore Elizaveta Avdeeva lost all three
of her matches in Flight A. Some of the highest
ranked players in collegiate tennis were in Avde-
eva’s bracket. Coach Amy Hall-Holt said Avde-
eva played tough and stayed focused through the
toughest bracket in the tournament.
Senior Christine Skoda and freshman Ksenia
Bukina both lost their opening matches before
winning their next ones in Flight B.
Freshman Edina Horvath fought through a
tough opening round tie-break loss to win her next
match in the same tie-break fashion. She lost in
the ffth place match to Sigrid Fischer of Indiana
in her third tie-break match of the tournament, 3-
6, 6-3, 0-1 (4). Horvath played in Flight C.
Flight D competitors junior Brittany Brown
and sophomore Lauren Hommell fnished sixth
and seventh respectively.
Junior Ashley Filberth fnished sixth in Flight
Unlike the singles play, the doubles portion of
the tournament had one all-inclusive bracket.
The draw saw the team of Avdeeva/Bukina fn-
ish in the seventh place match, but the match was
scheduled for late in the day and was eventually
canceled. Horvath/Hommell earned 10th, the high-
est Kansas placer, while Brown/Skoda ended the
tournament with two impressive victories to capture
13th place.
The team struggled in the opening day of doubles
but rebounded with a strong fnish Sunday.
“They played much better,” Hall-Holt said.
“They beat some really tough teams. I was very
proud of the effort.”
Hall-Holt said there is room for improvement
before the team competes in the Intercollegiate
Tennis Association Central Regional on Oct. 19
in Salt Lake City.
“I felt like we could have come out and com-
peted a little harder,” Hall-Holt said. “It’s all about
the experience in the fall. There is a lot work we
need to get done before the spring season starts.”
Hall-Holt said the players are willing to step up
for the challenging weeks ahead.

The Kansas volleyball team
righted itself in Boulder, defeating
Colorado on Saturday night.
The Jayhawks won in fve games
(30-32, 31-29, 17-30, 34-32, 15-6).
Andi Rozum, senior setter, be-
came the all-time Kansas leader in
assists with 4,238 for her career.
Rozum had 65 assists in the
match and passed Julie Wood-
ruff by 29. Woodruff played from
1988 to 1991.
“It was awesome to get the win
and it’s a good feeling all around,”
Rozum said.
It was the frst conference road
victory for the Jayhawks this sea-
son and improved the team to
12-3 overall and 4-2 in Big 12
play. Kansas volleyball coach Ray
Bechard said it gave Kansas a le-
gitimate road victory.
Bechard said the team was
excited by its performance. Go-
ing into the game, Bechard said
the team needed to do a better
job of passing and serving. The
Jayhawks were able to improve
that aspect of their game.
Kansas was not, however, able
to close out the opening game af-
ter jumping to a 29-26 lead. The
Buffaloes capitalized on the Jay-
hawks’ hitting errors and serv-
ing miscues to take the frst set.
The Jayhawks hit .118 in the frst
game allowing the Buffaloes an
opportunity to come back.
Kansas bounced back nicely to
win game two. After trailing 25-28,
the Jayhawks rallied to win the set,
31-29. Kansas’ increased hitting ef-
fciency, .271, helped the Jayhawks
tie the match at one-game a piece.
Colorado tried to run away with
the match in game three. Colo-
rado won by a substantial margin,
13, with a match-high .536 hitting
percentage. Colorado was able to
hold Kansas to a .129 hitting per-
centage in the victory. Colorado’s
Nicole Carr, senior outside hitter,
and Allie Griffn, senior right side
hitter, both reached milestones
in the loss. Carr recorded her
1,000th-career dig and Griffn got
her 1,000th-career kill.
Kansas was able to re-establish
itself in game four. Sophomore out-
side hitter Emily Brown and senior
outside hitter Paula Caten had con-
secutive kills that led the Jayhawks
to win the set. The team hit .326 in
game four and forced game fve.
Kansas ran away with the de-
ciding game, winning 15-6. The
Jayhawks ended the game on a 4-0
run for their frst conference road
“We played really well in the
ffth game,” senior middle blocker
Josi Lima said.
Next up, Kansas takes on in-
state rival No. 16 Kansas State t

zone for what appeared to
be a touchdown, however an
illegal block below the waist
negated the touchdown and
put the Jayhawks at the Texas
Tech 31-yard line. Junior
Adam Barmann began the
next possession at quarter-
back and the Jayhawks were
unsuccessful on a 51-yard
feld goal attempt by sopho-
more punter Kyle Tucker.
Key Stats:
Just 82 yards of total offense
in the frst half. The Kansas
defense allowed 23 points,
the other seven coming off a
fumble by the offense.
The Jayhawks racked up their
most penalties of the season:
nine penalties for 95 yards.

LUBBOCK, Texas — Texas
Tech quarterback Cody Hodg-
es took so many hits during
Saturday’s victory against Kan-
sas that he’s not sure about his
current physical shape.
“I really don’t think I’ll be
able to get up tomorrow morn-
ing,” Hodges said.
“It seemed like every play I
was getting knocked down and
had to get picked up off the
Kansas coach Mark Mangino
said the plays by Texas Tech
quarterback Cody Hodges were
the reason Texas Tech won 30-
Mangino said he was specif-
cally impressed by Hodges’ re-
sponse to the pressure from the
Kansas defense.
“He is a tough kid. We
knocked him down, sacked
him, got after him all night
and he just kept competing
and making plays,” Mangino
The Jayhawks sacked Hodges
fve times, but he was hit many
other times just as he released
the ball.
Texas Tech coach Mike Leach
was impressed by the pressure
Kansas put on Hodges. “They
sort of hung up a punching
bag on Cody Hodges,” Leach
said of the Kansas defense.
Senior linebacker Bran-
don Perkins was one of those
“punching” Hodges, recording
a sack.
“We hit him with whatever we
had, and he had a lot of heart as
he kept getting up. You have to
give him a lot of credit,” Perkins
The Kansas defense blitzed
often and was able to get in
Hodges’ face on seemingly ev-
ery play.
Hodges managed to throw
for more than 300 yards for the
fourth straight game this season.
He wasn’t always able to
fnd the end zone, but he was
still happy with the victory.
“It is disappointing we had
only two touchdowns and all
of the field goals,” Hodges
said. “I would rather have an
ugly win than a pretty loss,”
Hodges was not only suc-
cessful throwing the football
into the Jayhawk secondary,
but he was also able to use
his legs to get first downs for
Texas Tech.
The fve sacks negated Hodg-
es’ rushing totals, but he was
able to score a rushing touch-
down on a fve-yard run in the
third quarter.
Still, Hodges didn’t put up
the big touchdown numbers
that he had in his last three
games, he had 12 coming into
the game.
Mangino said while Hodges
may have had only one touch-
down, he did a great job of
getting crucial first downs
when it mattered most in the
second half.

LUBBOCK, Texas — When
Jayhawk fans take road trips to
support their team, they often
pick glamorous destinations
such as Austin, Texas, or Boul-
der, Colo., — certainly not Lub-
bock, Texas.
The KU fans who flled the
two smallest sections of the
Jones SBC Stadium were a mix
of family members, alumni who
live in west Texas and die-hard
Among attendees, the city
drew comparisons to another
Big 12 Conference locale.
“It’s almost worse than
Manhattan,” KU student Blake
Ferrel said. “Only almost,
What’s there to do when in
Lubbock? “Keep going,” ad-
vised a gas station attendant in
Amarillo, Texas, which is two
hours north of Lubbock.
The city is located along the
west Texas plains, which offer
vast expanses of nothingness as
far as the eye can see.
Drivers are guided by a
string of high school football
stadiums that light the way,
with Jones SBC Stadium in
Lubbock towering over them
Football is king in this part of
the country, which explains why
the stadium will soon expand to
more than 62,000 seats.
The stadium currently holds
53,000 fans.
The city is dry, meaning no
liquor stores exist within city
That didn’t put a damper on
Open felds near the stadium
quickly flled up with cars and
grills, including a tent for the
Jayhawk fans.
“We are going on all the road
trips this year,” said Mike Davis,
senior vice president of the KU
Alumni Association.
“This is the frst time the alum-
ni association has done that.” He
said he expected 70 to 75 people
to stop by the tent, which held its
own with the Red Raider parties
in every category except atten-
For most Jayhawk fans, a 12-
hour drive was just too much,
but for Gary McCullough and
Kyle Beran, it meant a game
they could attend.
McCullough and Beran live
in the Midland, Texas, area,
just two hours south of Lub-
“It’s not always easy to follow the
team, because they don’t put any of
the games on TV,” Beran said. “We
can follow basketball, because all
those games are televised.”
”The two enjoyed the area
and said that residents were
For McCullough, it was a big
difference from growing up in
Los Angeles.
“I think Midwesterners in
general are just very cordial,”
he said.
Davis and the alumni associ-
ation travelers will get another
opportunity to see another part
of the state next month, when
the Jayhawks travel to Austin,
Texas, to play the Longhorns.
“We’ll have a lot of people
at the Texas game,” Davis said.
“People perceive Austin as hav-
ing more to do.”

Texas Tech quarterback Cody Hodges prepares to make a pass as Kansas
senior defensive end Charlton Keith applies pressure in the fourth quarter of
the 30-17 Texas Tech victory on Saturday.
Texas Tech receiver Robert Johnson and Kansas junior cornerback Charles Gordon compete for a tipped ball in the
third quarter Saturday. Neither player made the catch in the 30-17 Texas Tech win.

t horoscopes
for Monday, Oct. 3, 2005: A Solar
Eclipse on your birthday heralds major
changes in your life. You have more
control than you realize, especially if
you don’t fght the inevitable. Many
who work might be questioning their
career choices and want to make an
adjustment. Do. If male, you could
fnd that you are going through a mini
identity crisis. If female, you could fnd
your views about the key man or men
in your life changing. If you are single,
you might decide that it’s time to settle
down. You will have your choice of
suitors. If you are attached, you might
fnd that you want to transform your
bond in some way. LIBRA understands
where you are coming from.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)
HHH The Solar Eclipse opposite your
sign could be particularly poignant
if you are within a week of your half-
birthday right now. Other Rams still
might feel its impact in one month,
three months and six months. Inter-
personal ties are about to transform
— ultimately for the better! Tonight:
Be available.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
HH You might feel that your energy is
off no matter what you do or what you
take on. You can make this a problem
or simply fow with the moment. Be
sensitive to those in your daily life. The
Eclipse could hit them hard. Tonight:
Yes, be a coach potato.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
HHHH Whether your creativity and
imagination have been high or low,
today’s Solar Eclipse heralds a trans-
formation in your creative product. If
you are single, a love affair could tap
you on the shoulder in the next few
months. Offspring could also act up.
Tonight: Enjoy your life.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
HH You are the sign of home and
family. Today’s Eclipse will stimulate
the domestic area of your chart. You
will fnd that much goes on within your
personal life in the next few months.
Some might make an investment in
real estate. Tonight: Head home.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
HHHH Whether you realize it or
not, you might be changing your daily
patterns in the next few months. Some
might choose a new, zippy car; others
could choose a simpler item. You will
ultimately feel very good with this
transformation. Tonight: Hang out;
swap the day’s tales.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
HHHH Use extreme caution with
your fnances in the next few months.
You could experience some dramatic
fnancial changes, from winning the
lottery to having a big bill drop on you.
Someone might take advantage of
you. Tonight: Pay bills.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
HHHHH Today’s Eclipse in your sign
might be particularly powerful for
those born within a week of today. A
career change or an adjustment in a
relationship becomes a strong pos-
sibility in the following months. If you
feel drained, slow down. Tonight: Play
it according to how you feel.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
HH Investigate more of your feelings.
Sometimes you suppress your emo-
tions. Get more in touch with your in-
ner self. Think about processing things
in a new way. You are more open than
you realize. Tonight: Do some soul-
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
HHHH Rethinking goals and long-term
commitments might not be what you want
to do in the next few months, but it will be
one of your major concerns. You might
decide to broaden your horizons and
somehow change your circle of friends.
Tonight: Find your pals.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
HHH You might want to consider how
much of a commitment you would like
to make to your work or to community
involvement. You will make changes
soon enough, either getting more
responsibility or choosing more free
time. Tonight: Out late.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
HHHH You re-evaluate your inner
direction and your choices. Your
sense of humor comes through, no
matter who you encounter. A family
member or domestic matter tests your
patience. Detach. Tonight: Experiment
with new ideas.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
HHH A partnership will be changing
in the next few months. You will fnd
that this person’s outlook and willing-
ness to share transforms. You need
to adjust, communicate and be open.
Tonight: At another’s beck and call!
(Just tonight.)

Hilton said she ended her fve-

“not ready for marriage” and
didn’t want it to end in divorce.
The 24-year-old celebutante-

ding plans with Paris Latsis,
22, because she didn’t want to
rush into marriage too quickly.
“I feel I’m just not ready for

people who love each other
and rush into getting married
too quickly. I do not want to

LAS VEGAS — Roy Horn
says “the magic is back.”
But two years after he was
nearly killed by a tiger on
stage, the magic is about walk-
ing short distances, not mak-
ing elephants disappear.
“I meditate a lot, but I am
constantly in pain,” Horn, of
the famed duo “Siegfried &
Roy,” told the Las Vegas Sun.
Today is the second anniver-
sary of the attack; It’s also his
61st birthday.
Horn can now walk unaided
for short distances, and the grip
of his right hand is noticeably
frm. But signs of the attack
remain: A thin white scar cuts
across the right side of his neck,
his left side is partially paralyzed
and his walk is a slow shuffe.

few big plays. We just didn’t do
enough to win.”
The Texas Tech offense was
not as prolifc as it was in its
frst three games, scoring just 30
points after averaging over 50
in the frst three games. Hodges
was often sacked or knocked to
the ground.
“They mixed up their cov-
erage a lot,” Hodges said. “It
seemed like they had guys ev-
Junior cornerback Charles
Gordon forced a key fumble
late in the third quarter that was
recovered by junior defensive
lineman Eric Butler.
Gordon’s fumble set up a 27-
yard feld goal by sophomore
kicker Scott Webb and the Jay-
hawks were within 10 points at
27-17. That would be the closest
the Jayhawks would get.
Luke threw his second inter-
ception with about 10 minutes
left in the fourth quarter. The
miscue gave the Red Raiders
the ball at their own 37-yard
line. Texas Tech ran 5:12 off the
clock and set up its fnal score
of the evening on a 46-yard feld
goal from Alex Trlica to make
the score 30-17.
Football Notes:
Kansas won its fourth con-
secutive coin toss of the season
and once again chose wait to re-
ceive until the second half.
Senior cornerback Theo Ba-
ines got the start at cornerback
for the frst time this season.
The Jayhawks saw their first
instant-replay review. Sim-
mons caught the ball for a first
down at 4th and 2, but later
officials overturned the play
and gave the Red Raiders the
Sophomore punter Kyle
Tucker attempted his frst feld
goal of his career, a 51-yarder
in the second quarter. The kick
fell just short. Tucker booted a
career long 77-yard punt in the
third quarter. He managed the
booming punt despite having
the snap fall short of him and
having to pick it up.
Gordon limped off the field
with less than five minutes re-
maining in the third quarter.
He would later return, but
limped off the field after the
game. Mangino said he hurt
his ankle but was not con-
cerned with his status for next

The Jayhawks recorded 21
shots to the Cyclones’ 12, but
were outshot 8-7 on goal, an oc-
currence relatively uncommon
for Kansas.

next week and bounce back
against the Oklahoma schools,”

Francis said he was proud of
his team’s effort and he knew his
team was on the right track.
“On the road, in conference,
against a good team, we should
probably be happy with that,”
Francis said. “But we’re a little
disappointed. We defnitely
had the better chances in the
The Jayhawks outshot the
Huskers 25-14 and 9-5 on goal,
but could not convert chances
to score goals.
Junior midfelder Michelle
Rasmussen led the Kansas at-
tack with four shots on goal.
Senior forward Caroline Smith
followed with three.
On Nebraska’s side of the
ball, freshman forward Aysha
Jamani was the only Husker to
record more than one shot on
goal, recording a pair.
In goalkeeping, Quinn recorded
fve saves, while Nebraska keeper
Jamie Klages stopped nine.
“We didn’t really fnish,”
Francis said. “We had three or
four excellent opportunities. We
should’ve won.”

Oklahoma State on Friday and

“Val really struggled with a lot
of frustration early in the game.
But what I liked was she gath-
ered herself in about the fourth
inning and she pitched much
better from the fourth inning
on,” Bunge said.
The next two games resem-
bled batting practice for the
Jayhawks, as they outscored
their opponents 17-0. The fnal
game of the tournament was a
rematch between Kansas and
This time, the Jayhawks
defeated the Lady Blues in a
more convincing fashion. Kan-
sas once again ended the game
early when Settlemier homered
to center feld in the bottom of
the sixth inning, putting Kansas
ahead 9-0.
Humphreys pitched three in-
nings and allowed three hits and
no runs.
Settlemier continued her
dominance, as the Lady Blues
were unable to come up with a
hit against her in the fnal three

“As the day goes on, you
can see that we started to
come around on it,” Chapple
said. “We had some good hits
this time that they caught, but
they had a better defense.”

Junior quarterback Adam Bar-
mann couldn’t move the Jayhawks
with more than fve minutes to go
down 13.
“I like the way they played for
four quarters; they played hard and
fought right to the end,” Mangino
said. But, impressively, the Kan-
sas defense, which allowed Texas
Tech’s vaunted offense to produce
only one touchdown drive during
the last 56 minutes of the game,
never got down.
Every defender on the team
had reason to believe the offense
was never going to give Kansas an
opportunity for victory and could
have chosen to leave his intensity
in the locker room at halftime.
But Mangino kept the team
together, leading it to a 17-10
advantage in the second half,
and gave Jayhawk fans reason
to believe that this team would
never quit on him.
That’s one attribute every good
coach has, and even though the
trait doesn’t guarantee the Kan-
sas football team will turn the
proverbial corner, it would have
no chance without it.
