Regents bill hits a snag
A bill that would allow the
University of Kansas to gain
control of interest earnings on
student tuition and fees has
stalled in two legislative com-
mittees.
If the bill were approved,
about $1.8 million would be
split among the six regent
schools.
The Board of Regents pro-
posed the bill in the House
Appropriations and the Senate
Ways and Means Committees.
“There has not been much
progress because the legislation
has been hit with other budget-
ary issues like appropriating
funding for K through 12,” said
Katie Wolff, student senate leg-
islative director.
Wolff said this was the first
year the Board of Regents had
made action to change the own-
ership of interest earnings.
Several committees need to
approve the bill and Kansas
Gov. Kathleen Sebelius needs to
sign it before it can be put into
effect.
Steve Munch, student body
president, said he would like to
see the bill
pass, but he
unde r s t ood
the holdup.
“There are a
lot of other
issues and
concerns that
need to be
addressed so I
imagine it’s
easy for some-
thing like this to get over-
looked,” Munch, Bellevue,
Neb., junior, said.
He said the state kept the
interest earned on students’
tuition and fees and allocated it
to to various
state agencies,
such as road
repairs.
“If we are
paying tens of
thousands of
dollars for
e d u c a t i o n ,
that’s what the
money should
go to benefit,”
he said.
The money received from the
interest would be applied to stu-
dent fees such as those for the
Kansas Memorial Unions,
Student Recreation Fitness
Center, and transportation.
Munch and Chancellor
Robert Hemenway testified
before the House
Appropriations Committee on
March 9 in favor of the bill.
The University and the other
five Board of Regents universities
are the only higher education
institutions in Kansas that do not
keep interest money generated
from student tuition and fees.
“I hope that if it doesn’t hap-
pen this year, it will have been
discussed enough to have a
future,” Munch said.

Center
envisioned
to be ‘hub’
for field
A new research center integrating life sciences
and computer science at the University of Kansas
is getting closer to reality.
Though the Center for Bioinformatics is still
awaiting a permanent home and faculty, Ilya
Vakser, director of the center, said developments
were going smoothly.
“We want the center to be an international hub
for this field,” Vakser said.
Bioinformatics is an area of research that uses
biological data to create com-
puter-modeled experiments.
There are theoretical and
practical applications for bioin-
formatics, Vakser said.
Researchers use experiments to
learn more about processes at
the molecular level while phar-
maceutical companies use the
data to develop better drugs and
treatments.
Having a bioinformatics pro-
gram is crucial to the University’s goal of being a
top-25 research institution, Rob Weaver, associate
dean of liberal arts and sciences, said.
“This is a field that has blossomed in the last
few years and it is absolutely necessary if the
University wants to be a leader in the bio-
sciences,” he said.
Finding top faculty has been easier than expect-
ed, Weaver said.
At the moment, Vakser is the only faculty mem-
ber for the center. More are expected to be hired
within the next few months.
A graduate program in bioinformatics will be
offered beginning in Fall 2006. While no students
have expressed formal interest in the program,
Weaver doesn’t think it will be hard attracting stu-
dents.
“Knowing how hot this area is, I can’t imagine
there being any problems,” he said.
The center will move to the Multidisciplinary
Research Building on West Campus before Jan. 1.
The facility will be completed this fall. The pur-

Center site
celebrated
Since 1995 the Multicultural Resource
Center has operated out of a building com-
monly known as “The Shack.” The deteri-
orating white building gets lost between
Summerfield Hall and the Military Science
Building, leading some to remark that it
reflects poorly on the University’s objective
to create a more diverse campus.
But by Fall 2006, the center will have a
prominent new home. Students and
other support-
ers of the MRC
came together
yesterday to
dedicate the site
of that new
home. The
MRC will move
into an addition
to the Kansas
Union, which
will be built on
on the north
side by the
parking garage.
T h o u g h
weather prevented the ceremony from
taking place outside, supporters filled the
Malott Room on the sixth floor of the
Union.
Provost David Shulenburger said the
location for the new center was appro-
priate.
“The Union is the heart of the
University,” he said.
The ceremony was used as a way to
recognize the dedication put in by facul-
ty and staff. But the students involved in
the creation of the new MRC received
special recognition.
“It’s not to celebrate the building,”
said Jonathan Ng, first-year law student
from Leawood. “It’s to recognize the
MRC’s vision.”
Ng was student body president in
2002 and 2003 and helped approve the
referendum to fund the new building
without raising student fees.
Constructing the new MRC will cost
about $2.5 million. Construction is being
financed through donations.
Building a new MRC is something
Santos Nunez has wanted since she
became the director in 2000.
She fought back tears as she began the
“calling the circle” ceremony. Creating a
circle were members of the Black
Student Union, Asian Student Union,
Hispanic American Leadership
Organization, First Nations Student
Association and Student Senate. The stu-
dents held objects symbolizing earth,
wind, water and fire.
Nunez told about the creation and his-
tory of the MRC during the ceremony
and officially dedicated the site by say-
ing, “Now the MRC will begin again.”
Catherine Bell supported the referen-
dum while she was a student senator at
the University. Now Bell, a Coffeyville
first-year law student, is helping the
building come together as a member of
the building committee.
“We have the resources, we have the
knowledge and we have the goals,” she
said. “Now we need the new structure to
increase student involvement.”
Some features to be included in the
new MRC include a bigger lounge area,
two general purpose rooms, a kitchen
and a large multipurpose room that will
face the Spencer Art Museum and
Memorial Stadium.
The official ground-breaking will take
place this fall.
Construction is scheduled to be com-
pleted in September 2006.

Study shows Hispanics
have lower cancer risk
Maybe Michael Lopez should move.
Because Lopez, a Mexican
American Kansas City, Kan., junior,
lives in a lower-middle-income neigh-
borhood with a small Hispanic popu-
lation, he may have a greater chance
of contracting certain types of cancer
than he would if he lived in a low-
income, densely Hispanic community,
according to a recent study.
Jonathan D. Mahnken, an assistant
professor at the University of Kansas
Medical Center and one of the study’s
three authors, said by e-mail that the
study was part of a cluster of research
that has been done on what has been
called the “Hispanic paradox.”
The term “Hispanic paradox” was
possibly coined in the mid-1980s when
a study found that Hispanics in the
Southwest had lower rates of various
chronic illnesses than non-Hispanic
whites, despite a relative disadvantage
in income and health care coverage,
according to author Paul McFedries’
Web site, www.wordspy.com.
Since then, researchers have dis-
covered cancer rates to be 33 percent
lower in Hispanics than in non-
Hispanic whites and cancer mortality
rates to be 38 percent lower, accord-
ing to Mahnken’s study.
Mahnken said the purpose of the
study was to find whether these rates
decreased among Hispanics who had
assimilated into mainstream culture,
living in middle-class neighborhoods
with a Hispanic population of less
than 20 percent.
Mahnken began working on the
study after the National Institutes of
Health gave a grant to the University
of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston
in 2003 to research the “Hispanic par-
adox.”
Karl Eschbach, associate professor,
and James S. Goodwin, professor at
the University of Texas Medical
Branch, the other authors, came up
with the idea for the study and asked
Mahnken, who was a research associ-
ate at the school, to be the statistician.
When Mahnken came to the Med
center last year, he continued his
work until the study was published
this year.
The researchers compared data of
cancer cases with U.S. Census Bureau
data to determine how various cancer
rates fluctuated between Hispanics
from predominantly Hispanic neigh-
borhoods (which roughly correspond-
ed to lower incomes) to Hispanics from
predominantly non-Hispanic neighbor-
hoods (which roughly corresponded to
middle and higher incomes).
They looked at five common types
of cancer: lung cancer, colorectal can-
cer, female breast cancer, prostate
cancer and cervical cancer. Mahnken
said they found a general decrease in
the number of Latinos with cancer in
Hispanic neighborhoods compared
with non-Hispanic neighborhoods.
But the results varied significantly
among the five types of cancer.
Cervical cancer rates actually
increased in Hispanic neighborhoods.
Prostate cancer incidences in Latinos
were about the same regardless of
neighborhood. The three other types
of cancer showed a general trend of
increasing in Latinos as the percent-
age of Hispanics living in their neigh-
borhood decreased.
In essence, this study shows that
lower cancer rates among Hispanics
dissipate with economic and ethnic
assimilation into mainstream society.
Mahnken listed variants in diet,
tobacco use, exercise, alcohol intake,
exposure to pollutants and stress as
possible disparities between
Hispanics living in non-Hispanic
communities and those living in
Hispanic communities.
“Unfortunately, our data did not
have these measures,” Mahnken said.
“But we feel that our results point
toward the need for future studies.”
Michael Lopez said he was sur-
prised by the results of the study.
“I was expecting it to be much high-
er in highly Hispanic communities,
because they probably have less
resources,” he said.
Victor Aguilar, president of the
Hispanic American Leadership
Organization, was also surprised by
the results of the study at first, but said
the results could probably be attrib-
uted to the type of food people eat.
“I guess you could say my family
was lower-income,” said Aguilar, a
Mexican-American Dodge City soph-
omore. “My mom made everything
herself. That’s something you don’t
see among the middle and higher
class. They have the money to go out
to fast food restaurants every day. As
we know, fast food isn’t the healthiest
thing in the world.”

Hispanics who live in close proximity may be healthier
Kansas could tremble in future
Kansas may not be the first place
that most think of when considering
where an earthquake is likely to hap-
pen, but according to recent research,
maybe it should be.
Associate Scientist of the Kansas geo-
logical survey Gregory Ohlmacher
recently published an article in the jour-
nal Tectonophysics on the prevalence
of and potential for earthquake activity
on a portion of the Humboldt Fault
Zone in Pottawattamie County, Kansas.
Pottawattamie County is northeast
of Manhattan.
“I started looking at some aerial pho-
tography of the area, and I found a fault
on the aerial photography,” Ohlmacher
said. “I wasn’t expecting to find that. It’s
very difficult to find faults around here.”
Ohlmacher then went out into the
field, confirmed his initial finding and
mapped several other faults in the
area. He intended to determine how
old the fault was, when it was created
and whether or not it could be reacti-
vated, he said.
After gathering the information,
Ohlmacher fed the data into a com-
puter and determined how much of
what kind of force was needed to
make the fault move. Armed with this
data, Ohlmacher was ready to com-
pare what he had discovered with
what was already known.
“It turned out that it is possible that
there could be an earthquake,”
Ohlmacher said. “What this research
can’t tell us is the magnitude of such
an earthquake.”
Ohlmacher quickly added that the
likelihood of a serious earthquake
was extremely low, but that something
in the range of a magnitude 2 to mag-
nitude 3 earthquake would be fairly
easy to conceive of.
To compare, the two recent earth-
quakes that have struck Indonesia
were about a magnitude 9. Each
increase in magnitude indicates a ten-
fold increase in earthquake power.
Such an earthquake, if centered
around the area where Ohlmacher
researched, would probably be felt
across the area of Pottawattamie
county. Even if the earthquake were
on the magnitude of one that struck
Kansas in the late 19th century, about
a magnitude 5.5, it would be felt
across an area from about Salina to
Kansas City, Ohlmacher said.
“The faults are aligned properly
that we will see earthquakes. And we
do see earthquakes in Kansas,”
Ohlmacher said.
The area that Ohlmacher
researched composes only a small por-
tion of the vast Humboldt Fault Zone.
Stretching from southern Nebraska to
northern Oklahoma, Humboldt is
responsible for producing earthquakes
of a magnitude 1 to magnitude 3 on a
regular basis. Little of this is ever felt
anywhere but directly over the fault,
however there is concern that a bigger
earthquake could occur.
A study of dam strength in areas
near the Humboldt Fault was under-
taken by the United States Army
Corps of Engineers in July of 2002. In
it, the Army Corps established two
levels of projected earthquake activity.
The first, lower, level is the maximum
likely intensity, while the second,
higher, level is the maximum possible
intensity.
While Ohlmacher’s research was
unable to provide a projection for the
intensity of an earthquake in the area
of study, according to the Army Corps
report, a standard earthquake would
be a magnitude 4.9 earthquake.
The Army Corps set 6.6 as the max-
imum foreseeable strength of an
earthquake in the Humboldt area.
Don Steeples, vice provost and dis-
tinguished professor of geology, said
that data indicated that an earthquake
on the order of magnitude 5 to magni-
tude 5.5 would only occur about once
every 100 to 200 years.
“It is possible that a magnitude 6 to
6.5 could occur on a long-term aver-
age of about every 2,000 to 3,000
years,” Steeples said.
Because the magnitude of earth-
quakes in Kansas is relatively low, this
new information probably won’t
change many of the procedures that
builders and homeowners follow
when constructing and refurbishing
structures.
While major earthquakes could
occur, even their damage would be
limited and only cause significant
damage to delicate structures,
Steeples said.
“The 6 to 6.5 events are so infre-
quent that only designers of major
structures like large dams and nuclear
power plants need to worry about
them,” Steeples said.

Committee honors
junior physics majors
Three KU juniors were award-
ed the Barry M. Goldwater
Scholarship this week, according
to a University Relations media
release.
Shawn Henderson, David
Hover and Hannah Swift were
awarded a $7,500 scholarship to
cover tuition, fees, books and
room and board.
The Goldwater Scholarship is
the primary scholarship in the
country for science, engineering
and math undergraduate students,
said Sue Lorenz, assistant director
of the KU Honors Program.
“It’s a very nice thing and we’re
all very thrilled,” Lorenz said.
“Especially the physics depart-
ment.”
All three students are majoring in
physics.
Ten students from Kansas were
named Goldwater scholars for
2005-2006 and were among more
than 1,000 students who compet-
ed for the scholarship nation-
wide.
A University committee selected
the three students to compete for
the scholarship, Lorenz said.

Police arrest man
suspected of assault
The KU Public Safety Office
arrested a 22-year-old male on sus-
picion of aggravated assault, bat-
tery and possession of stolen prop-
erty Tuesday night.
The man was involved in a fight
at Jayhawker Towers with an
acquaintance, a 19-year-old KU stu-
dent at her residence in the towers,
said Capt. Schuyler Bailey, KU

Bailey said he didn’t know why
the two were fighting.
The woman was not injured dur-
ing the incident.
The KU Public Safety Office
arrested the man at Budig Hall on
Tuesday night.
The man was also in possession
of a stolen car that the KU Public
Safety Office later recovered at
Jayhawker Towers, 1603 W. 15th
Street, Bailey said.
He was booked into Douglas
County Jail at 12:17 a.m. yesterday
morning.

Parent thwarts
handgun exchange
WICHITA — Police are prais-
ing a mother who called police
Tuesday night after her 9-year-
old son told her about plans to
swap an Microsoft X-Box video
game console for a handgun.
Police said she thwarted a
potential tragedy.
Police spokeswoman Janet
Johnson said after the woman
called about 10:30 p.m., officers
went to the home of the sec-
ond 9-year-old boy and found a
loaded handgun in his back-
pack. The boys apparently
planned to make the trade at
school on yesterday.
“This was a case of good
communication between a
child and his parents,” Johnson
said. “The mother cared
enough to call, and what could
have been a tragic situation
was avoided.”
The grandfather of the boy
with the gun was cited for
improper storage of a hand-
gun, Johnson said. He was the
boy’s legal guardian, she said.

Older workers gain
easier bias claims
WASHINGTON —The
Supreme Court expanded job
protections for roughly half the
nation’s work force yesterday,
ruling that federal law allows
people 40 and over to file age
bias claims over salary and hir-
ing even if employers never
intended any harm.
The decision eased the legal
threshold for about 75 million
middle-aged and older people
to contend in court that a policy
had a disproportionately hurtful
effect on them.
On the other hand, the ruling
makes clear employers still will
prevail if they can cite a reason-
able explanation for their poli-
cies, such as cost-cutting.

▼ IMMIGRATION
Citizens pack border
to catch illegal aliens
TOMBSTONE, Ariz. — The
Mexican border will be lined
tomorrow with volunteers,
some of them armed, who will
be patrolling for illegal immi-
grants — an exercise some fear
could attract racist crackpots
and lead to vigilante violence.
Organizers of the Minuteman
Project said the civilian volun-
teers, many of whom were
recruited over the Internet,
would meet first for a rally in
this one-time silver mining
town, then fan out across 23
miles of the San Pedro Valley to
watch the border for a month
and report sightings of illegal
activity to Border Patrol agents.
Minuteman field operations
director Chris Simcox described
the project as “the nation’s
largest neighborhood watch
group” and said one of the goals
was to make the public aware of
how porous the border was.
Jim Gilchrist, a retired
accountant from Aliso Viejo,
Calif., who organized the proj-
ect, said that some volunteers
would carry handguns, which
are allowed under Arizona law,
but are being instructed to avoid
confrontation, even if shot at.
Still, law enforcement offi-
cials and human rights advo-
cates are worried about the
potential for bloodshed.
Critics contend the project
may attract anti-immigrant
racists and vigilantes looking to
confront illegal immigrants. At
least one white supremacist
group has mentioned the proj-
ect on its Web site.
“They are domestic terrorists
that represent a danger to the
country and could promote a
major border conflict that will
have serious ramifications and
consequences,” said Armando
Navarro, a University of
California-Riverside political
science professor and coordina-
tor of the National Alliance for
Human Rights, which is made
up mostly of Hispanic activists.
Michael Nicley, chief of the
U.S. Border Patrol’s Tucson sec-
tor, said the volunteers were not
the kind of help the Border
Patrol was asking for.
Cochise County Sheriff Larry
Dever said he feared immigrant
smugglers might open fire on
the volunteers.
“I wouldn’t anticipate that
people of that persuasion would
act or react any differently to
anybody, citizen or law enforce-
ment alike, if they were con-
fronted and felt like their cargo
was in jeopardy,” he said.
The project’s organizers gave
assurances the volunteers
would be closely monitored. “If
it gets to a situation where
someone’s life is in danger,” said
David Helppler, Minuteman
security coordinator, “I will end
the project.”
Project organizers said they
expected 800 to 1,000 volun-
teers. How many might actually
show is unclear; similar efforts
in the past few years flopped.
One of them drew only about a
half-dozen people.

America’s war in Iraq is
now more than two years old.
It’s been a series of decep-
tions from the start. The deceit
most bandied about these
days is that we’re bringing
freedom and democracy to
Iraqis. It’s important to under-
stand why that’s not true, both
for our sake and for theirs.
Any discussion of Iraq must begin with Saddam
Hussein. In the 1980s, the Butcher of Baghdad was
at war with Iran. The United States, his most pow-
erful ally at the time, sent him samples of anthrax
and bubonic plague, as well as American helicop-
ters equipped with powerful bombs. Overseeing
these shipments was Donald Rumsfeld, then the
secretary of defense for President Reagan. In the
private sector, Rumsfeld had invested in pharma-
ceutical and technological companies, both from
which he stood to gain directly from the sales of
bombs and biological agents to Saddam.
This is Act 1. Think of Iraq as a movie, with a
shadowy cast of war profiteers as the stars. Cut to
1992: America’s boy in Baghdad has gotten too big
for his britches and has been removed from Kuwait.
Paul Wolfowitz, then the U.S. ambassador to Jakarta,
oversees the formation of a secret Pentagon policy
directive, which states that America must engage in
unilateral military actions to ensure “access to vital
raw materials, primarily Persian Gulf oil.”
I know, nobody likes the “o” word. Instead of
oil, think of money. Paul Wolfowitz certainly did:
He sat on the board of directors for Northrop
Grumman, an incredibly lucrative war contractor.
The entire cast was assembled after the election
of President Bush. There was Dick Cheney — for-
mer president of Halliburton — as vice president,
and Rumsfeld — consultant for Betchel — again
as secretary of defense. Both of these companies
were among the list of biggest war profiteers of
2004. There was Wolfowitz — now the president
of the World Bank — and Richard Perle, Bush’s
Pentagon chairman until 2003. Perle worked for
the defense contractor Trireme.
After Sept. 11, the Project for the New American
Century made the case for “American world leader-
ship.” This organization repre-
sents America’s neo-conserva-
tives, who believe in global free
markets.
So this is the real genesis of
the war in Iraq: War profiteers
and nationalists coming togeth-
er to expand markets. From
this, the administration’s ideals
of fighting terror and spreading
freedom must be viewed as a smoke screen.
But what if the war actually did bring democracy
to Iraq? What if the goal of privatizing Iraq’s econ-
omy in the interest of corporate America failed?
First, consider that more than 100,000 Iraqi
civilians have been killed since the invasion,
according to the British medical journal The
Lancet, and coalition forces have killed far more
Iraqis than the insurgents. Suppose you’re a guy
and you commit date rape. The girl gets pregnant
and she raises a wonderful child. Would we attrib-
ute this success story to you, the rapist? Such is
the logic of the war bringing democracy to Iraq.
Secondly, the administration will never let go of
its plans for privatization. It has proven this time
and again for two years now.
Up until January 2004, the administration
opposed the kind of one-person, one-vote elec-
tions we saw in Iraq two months ago. Iraq’s con-
stitution was originally supposed to be written by
an American-backed group of Iraqi exiles. Grand
Ayatollah Ali Sistani, one of the real heroes of this
story, denounced the plan and demanded free
elections. By the beginning of 2004, the adminis-
tration had no choice: Sistani had mobilized hun-
dreds of thousands of protesters on the streets of
Basra and Baghdad. The jig was up.
If democracy ever comes to Iraq, it will be a great
success story for Iraqis, and a great failure for the
administration. Unfortunately our president, with
his hardest of hearts and greediest of intentions,
still stands in the way. Naomi Klein reported in The
Nation that Iraqis overwhelmingly voted on the
Jan. 30 ballot to end the occupation yet. Bush
insists we shouldn’t set an “artificial timetable.”

Coulter’s, and audience’s, shenanigans
equally embarrassing to University
I attended the Vickers Memorial lecture featur-
ing Ann Coulter knowing I was going to disagree
with most of her comments because I am a liber-
al, but without the intention of feeling shocked
and disgraced with her blatant disrespect for
many in the University community.
When liberal hecklers loudly refuted her com-
ments, she admonished that “the sexual orienta-
tion classes are down the hall.”
Although I do not agree with the hecklers chal-
lenging her discourse, I was taken aback that she
would resort to slurs about someone’s sexual
preference to respond to an opposing view. In her
regular lecture text, she made irreverent com-
ments about minorities including “brown man.”
Even more disturbing than her speech was the
audience’s reaction: Through cheers they encour-
aged Ms. Coulter to continue her insensitive
attacks on “liberal” audience members. As a
woman who advocates freedom of speech, I also
found it unpardonable that Ms. Coulter urged
several College Republicans to quiet or remove
those who were challenging her.
By the time the question and answer session
began, the majority of people with opposing
viewpoints had been “escorted” from the room,
clearly diminishing the possibility of freedom of
expression. I support the Vickers family’s goal of
providing an open forum “to debate or discuss
subjects vital to maintaining a free political and
market economy,” so I was appalled that they
should select — and the University allow —
someone with such little respect for diversity, in
sexual orientation, race, gender and thought.

Coulter misses point of own lecture
by opting for insults and zealotry
The purpose of the Vickers Memorial Lecture
Series is to debate or discuss subjects vital to
maintaining a free political and market economy.
And through all of the mocking, denigration,
belittlement and constant combativeness of Ann
Coulter’s comments and remarks, lost sight of
that purpose. In fact, the talk was anything but a
debate about free markets and politics. Coulter’s
talk was chockfull of name-calling, logical falla-
cies, euphemisms, and for lack of better wording,
scapegoating.
I thought that there would be some kind of
class and taste brought to an academic setting
such as the University. Both Coulter and mem-
bers of the audience did not respect the opinions
of the opposition. It was extremely inappropriate
for an intellectual collegiate lecture series to put
on such an ultra-conservative show with Ann
Coulter as the cheerleader. Her fanaticism and
zealotry reached a peak, when she told members
in the audience, to leave and join the sexual ori-
entation seminar.
Her perspectives on political and market
economies, or lack thereof, were truly one of a
written author and prominent person of society. I
think it was very improper and for there to be
some kind of redress and reprisal to both the stu-
dents and faculty of the University.

There is a marriage fever in
America. Everybody wants to
get married. The mother
asked the little girl “What do
you want to do when you
grow up?” And the little girl
said, “I want to get married.”
This is the dream of girls in
America. They go through life
waiting for the moment they
are going to get married.
Girls I have met here talk about marriage as if it
were necessary, as though marriage was some-
thing you have to do at some point in life.
What they did not consider was that the possi-
bility of not getting married is not that bad.
Women have been fighting to be dissociated to
the marriage institution and seen as more inde-
pendent individuals since the 1960s. Many girls
still think marriage is the commodity that brings
happiness.
Now even same-sex couples want to conform
to the traditional institution of marriage while
women are fighting to be more independent,
same-sex couples are fighting to get married.
Marriage is not hip. Gay couples were hip
because they had non-stereotyped relationships
that worked better than the traditional roles
played by regular couples. They should not try to
conform to old stereotypes, like marriage.
Marriage has failed in our society.
If same-sex couples realized what was involved
in marriage, they might not fight for it. People
should be careful in fighting for something that
they could regret later.
They should do some research on divorce rates
in America. According to the Divorce Reform
Web site, about 50 percent of marriages end in
divorce.
I would say same-sex couples should be happy
that they are not allowed to get married. It is not
a disadvantage, it is a benefit.
If women and men were not
allowed to get married, they
would save so much grief, so
much money in divorce paper-
work and so much hassle to
split the assets.
Not to mention the money
the government would save.
According to the same Web
site, the United States spends
about $33.3 billion each year in divorces. All this
money could be used for education, health and
social security. We should just stop the marriages
to avoid the divorces.
Same-sex couples could have the perfect for-
mula of happiness: Independent relationships
without the commitment of marriage. Now they
are fighting to get what has destroyed most rela-
tionships on earth: marriage.
In fact, nobody should be able to get married.
On April 5, when Kansas votes about the same-
sex marriage ban, they should include, “Marriage
is the union between one man and one woman,
and it should never be allowed in any circum-
stance because it is the greater source of unhappi-
ness in America these days.”
Then I would vote for it. But banning marriage
for same-sex couples is not enough. They should
ban it for everybody.
If marriage is banned for everybody, when the
mother asked her daughter what she wanted to do
when she grows up, she would still say “I want to
get married.”
But then, the mother would say, “I am sorry,
darling, but now marriage is illegal.” And then the
girl would reply “Oh, OK, then I will go to law
school.” And then all couples could live happily
ever after.

Pope worsens, may
need feeding tube
VATICAN CITY — Pope John
Paul II is getting nutrition from
a feeding tube through the
nose, the Vatican said on yes-
terday, shortly after the frail
pontiff appeared at his window
in St. Peter’s Square and unsuc-
cessfully tried to speak.
Vatican spokesman Joaquin
Navarro-Valls said the tube was
aimed at improving the pope’s
calorie intake. It was not visible
when the pope made his
appearance.
Navarro-Valls issued the first
medical report on John Paul
since March 11 — two days
before he was discharged from
the hospital for the second time
in a month. The update came
amid media reports saying the
pope might be hospitalized
again to insert a feeding tube in
his stomach because of prob-
lems swallowing food.

Jewish leader calls for
weapons withdrawal
JERUSALEM — Jewish set-
tlers should hand over their
weapons before the planned
Gaza withdrawal this summer
to prevent any chance of bloody
confrontations with Israeli
troops over the dismantling of
settlements, a settler leader said
yesterday.
The proposal by ultranation-
alist lawmaker Effie Eitam
marked the first time a settler
leader acknowledged the poten-
tial for violence among settlers
during the withdrawal. Eitam
and another prominent settler,
Bentsi Lieberman, said troops
should also be barred from car-
rying firearms at the time.
Many Jewish settlers in Gaza
and the West Bank are armed,
and settler leaders have warned
that extremists could be plan-
ning to fire on authorities dur-
ing the withdrawal, set to begin
this summer.
Eitam and Lieberman said
they hoped to negotiate an
agreement on banning weapons
with the Israeli police minister.
Also yesterday, Jerusalem
Police Chief Ilan Franco said he
would prevent withdrawal
opponents from holding an
April 10 rally at a disputed
Jerusalem holy site.
The site — known to Jews as
the Temple Mount and to
Muslims as Haram as-Sharif, or
Noble Sanctuary — is revered in
both religions. The site is the
most sensitive spot in the
Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
A Palestinian militant, who
identified himself as Abu
Yousef, warned yesterday that
he and his band of gunmen
would stop observing a truce
with Israel if the rally was held.

Afghan
visit
made
KABUL, Afghanistan —
Under heavy protection in this
dusty, dangerous capital, Laura
Bush yesterday talked with
Afghan women freed from
Taliban repression and urged
greater rights. She expressed
high hopes, envisioning a day
when tourists would flock here
for vacations.
There were reminders of war
at every turn of Bush’s visit. U.S.
soldiers in camouflage fatigues
manned M-60 rifles at both ends
of four transport helicopters
that flew the first lady and her
entourage to events around
Kabul.
“I knew we’d be safe,” Bush
said aboard her plane during
her return to Washington.
“Afghanistan is safe. There are
certainly parts of it that aren’t
right now. But, in general, I
think it is a very safe place to
travel.”
Still, Bush kept her stay brief.
She spent just six hours on the
ground after flying nearly
halfway around the world to get
here.
The first lady met with women
training to be teachers and gave
presents to Afghan children on
the street. She thanked U.S.
troops for bringing down rulers
who kept girls from school.
President Hamid Karzai said
Bush’s visit “matters much more
than hundreds of millions of
dollars. Much more.” Yet the
fragile democracy is heavily
dependent on international aid,
and Mrs. Bush said she was
asked for help to pay for schol-
arships, computers and books.

severely brain-damaged daugh-
ter alive.
The decision, announced in a
one-sentence order, was the
sixth time since 2000 that the
court declined to intervene in
the case. Justices did not
explain their decision and there
was no indication how they
voted.
It was also the second time
in a week that the high court
refused to reinsert the tube.
The court’s decision was
expected. Not only had justices
repeatedly declined to inter-
vene in the Schiavo case on
previous occasions, but they
routinely defer to state courts
on family law issues.

Fraternities begin season battling
Big hitting was negated by
solid defense Tuesday night as
Pi Kappa Phi defeated Alpha
Epsilon Pi 5-4 in the opening
game of intramural softball sea-
son for both teams.
The game was played at the
Lawrence High School softball
field. The sun set just after the
final out of the game, which
went the full seven innings.
Both teams hit the ball into
the outfield often, but Pi Kappa
Phi’s outfielders made the differ-
ence, catching eight fly balls.
The infield defense was not as
solid. The teams’ had a com-
bined six infield errors, all of
them on ground balls. AEPi took
the lead in the opening frame
with a triple from Dan Burnstine,
Glencoe, Ill., freshman.
Pi Kappa Phi countered with
a triple from Ryan Wagner.
Wagner, Wichita freshman, was
the team’s top hitter, going three
for three with a double, triple
and the game’s only home run.
“We had two-a-day practices
all week,” he joked after the
game. “They got us ready to play.”
Following Wagner’s home run
in the third inning, AEPi was
able to reclaim the lead in the
fourth. Four consecutive singles
produced two runs for the team,
giving it a 4-3 edge.
Going into the fifth inning
the score was tied at 4-4.
Wagner reached base on a dou-
ble, sending Brett Urban,
Lawrence freshman, to the plate
for Pi Kappa Phi.
Urban took a ball, then sent
the next pitch deep into center
field. The AEPi outfielder could-
n’t run down the ball, giving
Urban a triple and the game-
winning RBI.
The Pi Kappa Phi defense fin-
ished the job, allowing just two
of the final eight batters to reach
base.
Pitching was also more consis-
tent for Pi Kappa Phi. They struck
out two batters, and only four bat-
ters saw a third pitch in the entire
game. AEPi allowed two walks
and a foul-ball strikeout.
Wagner and Joseph Toubia,
Wichita freshman, each scored
two runs for Pi Kappa Phi.
Cleanup hitter, Urban reached
third base on two separate occa-
sions.
The AEPi lineup was filled
with offense from top to bottom.
Every player on the team had at
least one base hit and five play-
ers had multiple hits. But the
team lacked power hitting. Dan
Burnstine, Glencoe, Ill., fresh-
man, was the only player to
have a triple.
Pool play will continue over
the next three weeks. Pi Kappa
Phi begins their regular season
undefeated.
The team members celebrated
the victory by performing two
chants: their own and AEPi’s,
mocking the loosing team.
Pi Kappa Phi is optimistic
about the rest of the season.
“We won’t stop until we win
the championship,” Wagner
said.

NCAA TOURNAMENT
Police pledge to be
pleasant for Final 4
ST. LOUIS — Expecting thou-
sands of guests in town for col-
lege basketball’s premier event,
police say they’ll keep their
guard up for any trouble with-
out applying a stifling press on
revelers in the city’s first Final
Four in a quarter century.
About a year in the planning,
security downtown over the
next several days — including
Saturday’s Division I semifinals
and Monday’s title game — will
be measured, not as smother-
ing as some complained things
were when Pope John Paul II
visited here six years ago.
Back then, media accounts
previewing tight security were
blamed for scaring away
would-be viewers of the pontiff
along motorcade routes, slash-
ing the size of crowds that had
been expected to be far larger.

Veteran end signs
with former team
ST. LOUIS — Defensive end
Jay Williams, an 11-year veter-
an who broke in with the then-
Los Angeles Rams in 1994, is
returning to the team.
The Rams announced yester-
day they’d signed Williams, 33,
to a three-year, $2.65 million
contract. The deal includes a
$300,000 signing bonus.
The 6-foot-3, 270-pound
Williams spent six seasons with
the Rams. In 137 career games,
including 31 starts, he has 255
tackles, 23 1/2 sacks, four forced
fumbles and two interceptions.
His best season was last sea-
son, when he had 57 tackles —
32 solo — with two sacks, one
interception and two forced
fumbles. He played in 16
games, though he started just
one. He was released by the
Dolphins in February.
— Jim Salter/The Associated Press
The Jayhawks were able to
mount some offense and get on
the board in the bottom of the
fifth. Destiny Frankenstein, jun-
ior shortstop and co-captain,
knocked a home run over the
center field wall. Serena
Settlemier, junior pitcher and
co-captain, followed with a blast
to center field. Settlemier led the
team offensively, going 2 for 3.
The Jayhawks pulled within
five and added one run in the
bottom of the seventh in the
loss.
“I was disappointed we came
out flat in the beginning,”
Bunge said.
She said that in the sixth and
seventh innings, the team did a
great job of attacking at the
plate. She said the team would
have to play like that for an
entire game to continue win-
ning at home.
With the loss, Kansas
dropped to 15-11 overall and 0-
2 in the Big 12 Conference.
Nebraska snapped a four-game
losing streak and picked up its
first conference victory.
Today, the team will head to
Wichita State for a double
header against the Shockers.
The first game is scheduled for 3
p.m. Bunge expects all three
pitchers to play.

Kansas softball coach
Early in the second half,
Chalmers beat his man off a
cross-over dribble outside the
three-point line, drove to the
basket in traffic, hit the shot
and drew the foul.
A couple of plays later, he
showed his passing skills when
he hit fellow Kansas signee
Downs with an alley-oop pass
in transition. Downs finished
the play with a reverse jam.
Chalmers topped off eight
straight points by Kansas
recruits for the West when he
penetrated and laid it in.
Chalmers showed his range
when he knocked down a 16-
foot jump shot and then hit back-
to-back three-pointers on the
ensuing possessions. The second
three-pointer came after he stole
an inbound pass, stepped outside
the three-point line and knocked
down the shot.
Watching the McDonald’s
game made current players like
sophomore guard J.R. Giddens
excited about the potential for
next year’s team.
“Micah is so good. I mean
Julian. I mean Mario,” Giddens
laughed. “These guys are going
to be good.”

3 Rockies ejected

PHOENIX — Phoenix Suns
owner Robert Sarver ordered
security guards to remove
three Colorado Rockies players

VOLLEYBALL
Future Jayhawk setter given
top Kansas ‘Gatorade’ honors
Kansas volleyball signee Katie Martincich was
announced Tuesday as the 2005 Kansas
Gatorade Player of the Year.
Martincich earned the title
after leading Bishop Miege
High School to its third straight
state title this fall.
Kansas coach Ray Bechard
said the award was well-
deserved.
“She has unbelievable lead-
ership skills and really under-
stands the flow of the game
and how to distribute the ball,”
Bechard said. “Schools on the
East and West Coasts would
have loved to have her, and we
think she is the top setter
prospect in this part of the
country.”
The 5-foot-10 setter from
Shawnee was also selected as
the 2004 Eastern Kansas
League Player of the Year and
garnered all-state and 5A all-
tournament honors.
Martincich, a two-time Kansas City Star player
of the week, will join the Jayhawks for the 2005
season and begin training with the team this
summer.
Bechard said Martincich would be a protege to
incumbent setter Andi Rozum and likely replace
her after the 2005 season. Last season’s second-
string setter, Ashley Bechard, a Kansan copy
chief, will graduate in May.

MEN’S BASKETBALL
Simien honored in Topeka for success off court
Kansas senior forward Wayne Simien was recognized yester-
day by the Kansas Senate and House of Representatives in
Topeka for his achievements during his senior season.
Simien and his parents, along with Kansas coach Bill Self and
Self’s wife, Cindy, attended the ceremony where the governor
read Simien’s list of career accomplishments from a proclamation:
“WHEREAS, Through his success, his positive attitude, and his
strong personal character, Wayne Simien has won the respect and
admiration of the entire State of Kansas; and
WHEREAS, Kansas is proud to call Wayne Simien one of its
own, and no matter where a professional career or personal life
may take him, Wayne Simien will always be a Jayhawk,” the
proclamation read.
The Leavenworth native was named first-team All-American and Big 12
Conference player of the year during his senior season. He is one of four candi-
dates for the Naismith Award, and he was named one of five finalists for the
Wooden Award on Tuesday. Each award is given to the top player in men’s college
basketball, as determined by separate committees of media voters.
The Naismith Award will be presented at the Final Four in St. Louis. The 29th
annual Wooden Award will be announced April 9 in Los Angeles. Simien, his par-
ents, Margaret and Wayne Sr., and Self will attend the event.
Joining Simien on the list of Wooden Award finalists are Utah’s Andrew Bogut,
Dee Brown of Illinois, North Carolina’s Sean May and Duke’s J.J. Redick
Simien was also named one of 10 Wooden All-Americans.
The senior forward averaged 20 points and 11 rebounds per game during his
senior season. He was named Big 12 player of the week three times.

Spartan fans see
double in finals
EAST LANSING, Mich. — Rob Dare
and his friends crowded around a TV,
screaming as Michigan State competed
for a spot in the Final Four.
The students weren’t watching the
men’s team, however. For the first time,
Dare and his buddies were tuned in to
cheer on the Spartan women.
Michigan State will have its men’s and
women’s teams in the Final Four this
weekend and Dare, as much as it sur-
prises him, will be interested in both
games.
“Everybody follows the men around
here, but now people are jumping on the
women’s bandwagon, me included,” the
sophomore said yesterday. “I was really
impressed with them against Stanford.
Me and my friends couldn’t believe how
good they could shoot. Maybe we
should’ve started following them earlier.”
Michigan State has gone hoops crazy,
a fact that could be seen and heard on
and around campus.
Merchandise was hawked on street
corners under makeshift tents, and con-
gratulatory messages could be seen on
businesses’ marquees.
A green and white Spartans blanket
attached to a flag pole flapped in the
wind in the back of a pickup truck on the
eastern edge of campus.
As if a partly cloudy, 70-degree day
wasn’t enough to create a buzz in the
winter-weary college town, two Final
Four-bound basketball teams provided
an extra boost of excitement.
For the past two weeks, Michigan
State president Lou Anna Simon has
crisscrossed the country to give equal
time to the Spartans in both the men’s
and women’s NCAA tournaments.
There’s no rest for Simon now.
“It’s a great problem to have,” Simon
said in interview with The Associated
Press a few minutes after the women’s
team beat Stanford on Tuesday night.
“It’s going to be a little easier on me this
weekend because the sites will be closer
together, and the games don’t conflict.
“I can’t wait to get to the pep rallies
and other events we have planned before
each game.”
Simon will watch the men play North
Carolina on Saturday in St. Louis, then
travel 250 miles to Indianapolis for the
women’s game against Tennessee on
Sunday.
If both Michigan State teams pull off
upsets, Simon will be back in St. Louis
on Monday for the men’s national cham-
pionship before wrapping up her whirl-
wind tour Tuesday night in Indianapolis
for the women’s title game.
Just six schools have sent both men’s
and women’s teams to the Final Four, but
the feat has now happened four years in
a row.
Georgia was the first to do it, in 1983,
and Duke followed in 1999 before
Oklahoma, Texas, Connecticut and now
Michigan State had two teams advance
to the semifinals from 2002-05. Last year,
the Huskies were the first to have both
men’s and women’s teams win national
championships in the same season.
Michigan State coach Tom Izzo said
superior facilities, successful recruiting
and support from the administration
likely helped each school pull off the
accomplishment.
At Michigan State, the head coaches
of both basketball programs are close
and the players are, too.
Izzo said he spoke with women’s
coach Joanne P. McCallie yesterday
afternoon, a day after he gathered his
players to watch her team topple
Stanford.

✦ Today's Birthday.
You’ll get a lot farther this year than
even you thought possible. Although
planning is always suggested, it looks
like you succeed almost by accident.
Take care, and enjoy the ride.
✦ Aries (March 21-April 19) Today is a 9.
Your achievements could, quite possi-
bly, exceed your expectations. Don’t
limit yourself. With discipline, there’s
no telling how far you can go.
✦ Taurus (April 20-May 20) Today is a 4.
The missing piece to the puzzle is
there; all you have to do is find it. Start
tidying up at one end and gradually
work your way to the other.
✦ Gemini (May 21-June 21) Today is a 9.
A person with a different point of view
wins the argument. Don’t get your
underwear into a bunch. There’s a rea-
son, and you can figure out what it is.
✦ Cancer (June 22-July 22) Today is a 4.
Continue with your new procedure.
It’ll soon become a habit and you’ll
forget you ever used to do the job
the harder way. If you do remember,
you’ll laugh.
✦ Leo (July 23-Aug. 22). Today is a 10.
Another’s passions stir you to get
involved, and then take action.
Together, you’ll accomplish more than
either of you could have alone.
✦ Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Today is a
5. You’ve been looking for the per-
fect thing, and odds are good you’ll
find it. Get yourself and your credit
card over to where you saw some-
thing like it.
✦ Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Today is an 8.
If you keep digging, the odds are good
you’ll find the buried treasure. It might
be the information you seek, but it
could be Spanish doubloons. Depends
on where you dig.
✦ Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Today is a 5.
The money is pouring in, but that’s no
excuse to be frivolous. There’s some-
thing unstable about this condition.
Don’t take anything for granted.
✦ Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Today is a
9. You’re brilliant, no use denying it.
Sometimes you surprise yourself with
the funny things you say and do. It’s a
talent. Relax and enjoy.
✦ Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Today is a
4. It’s a wonderful day for cleaning out
the closets and the garage. You’ll find
all kinds of wonderful treasures, some
of which you can actually use.
✦ Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Today is an
8. Transformation is a process where-
by something becomes something
else. If that were to happen to you,
how do you want to emerge?
✦ Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Today is a 5.
The best kind of leader, they say, is
one who knows how to follow orders.
You’ve got that part down, so next
you’ll get to practice giving them.

She won America’s heart in
Sydney when she won five
medals. She caught America’s eye
amidst last year’s Bay Area Lab
Co-Operative steroid scandal.
But this April, Marion Jones will
bring her celebrity to Lawrence.
Tim Weaver, director of the
Kansas Relays, and track coach
Stanley Redwine announced that
Jones will compete in the relays
from 2 to 5 p.m. April 23. The
Olympic sprinter/jumper will join
almost a dozen other Olympic
athletes in the “Gold Zone.” The
Gold Zone will match top ath-
letes against each other in a for-
mat never tried before at the
Kansas Relays. Maurice Green,
Stacy Draglia and University of
Kansas graduate Charlie Gruber
plan to compete.
“We made a list of the biggest
names in track,” Weaver said of
himself, Redwine and Kansas
athletics Director Lew Perkins.
“We were left with the top three:
Maurice, Marion and Stacy.
They’re not just track stars,
they’re superstars.”
Jones said she was really
looking forward to being able to
compete in the Relays.
“It’s one of those historic
meets that everyone is talking
about again,” Jones said.
The Kansas Relays recorded
its highest attendance since
1983 in 2000, when Maurice
Green, a Kansas City, Kan.,
native, competed in the 4x100
meter relay.
“Without exaggeration, this
will be the greatest collection of
Olympic talent the relays have
ever seen. It will the biggest KU
Relays crowd in history,”
Weaver said.
Jones won three gold and two
bronze medals in the 2000
Olympic games in Sydney,
Australia. In 2004, she finished
first in the Olympic long jump
preliminaries, but finished fifth
in Athens, dropping out of the
200-meter dash and not qualify-
ing in the 100-meter dash.
Later that year, Bay Area
Laboratory Cooperative head
Victor Conte accused Jones of
using steroids in 2001. She sued
Conte on December 16, 2004.
Federal investigation has linked
BALCO laboratories to several
other athletes, including Jones’
husband, Tim Montgomery.
Montgomery, who owns the
world record in the 100-meter
dash, 9.78 seconds, admitted to
using steroids on June 24, 2004.
When asked if Jones participation
in the relays would bring bad
publicity, Weaver said not at all.
“People are so excited just to
see her on the street. They will
be more excited just to see her
compete,” Weaver said.
Jones is currently training for
the World Championships in
Helsinki.
“It’s a thrill that her path goes
through here,” Weaver said.
Despite recent controversy, the
addition of Jones adds additional
publicity to the Kansas Relays,
more than other athletes could.
Her entry in the relays will mark
her second meet since she com-
peted in Athens. She plans to run
at the Mt. SAC Relays in Walnut,
Calif., the week before coming to
Lawrence.
“I have no doubt she will be
ready to go,” Weaver said. “All I
have ever seen her do is run
fast.”
Redwine anticipates Jones’
visit to Lawrence will be a tuto-
rial for his team.
“In order to become a cham-
pion, you have to see a champi-
on,” Redwine said.

Team races from ‘embarrassing’ to ‘progressing’
When a team hits a bump in
the road, the team can go one of
two ways. It either spins out of
control and flies off course, or it
accelerates toward its goal.
The Kansas baseball team still
has control of the wheel after a
violent incident involving at
least one player culminated with
an indefinite suspension. The
players proved that when they
defeated the No. 9 Nebraska
Cornhuskers, 7-6, in their con-
ference opener on Saturday.
Four weeks before, early in the
morning Feb. 27, senior pitcher
Scott Sharpe was hanging out with
his teammates and got into some
trouble at an after-last-call gather-
ing near the bars on 14th Street.
He was accused of battery
and released on bond. He was
suspended for two weeks.
Ritch Price, whose goal since
coming to Kansas in 2003 has
been to have an elite Big 12
Conference program that consis-
tently makes the NCAA tourna-
ment, was faced with a setback.
“It’s certainly an embarrass-
ing situation,” the Kansas coach
said after the incident. “And it’s
embarrassing for our program.”
The Jayhawks dropped four
of their next five games, includ-
ing a surprising loss to
Southwest Missouri State. The
tires were slipping off the road.
Who knows what happened
next, but the Jayhawks won
seven straight.
Sure, each game was against
inferior competition — the slate
included home games against
South Dakota State, Baker and
Western Illinois. But it felt good
to win again.
“I really think our team is pro-
gressing well,” Price said after his
second victory against Western
Illinois, number 302 in his career.
The same leadership skills
that helped him to win those
games helped the team regain
traction. The players proved
that by capping their winning
streak with a victory against
Nebraska.
OK, the Jayhawks dropped
their next two games in embar-
rassing fashion, allowing nine
runs in each contest. But that’s
supposed to happen against
teams such as Nebraska, a base-
ball powerhouse.
“For being the first series Big
12-wise, I think we played pret-
ty well,” junior relief pitcher
Don Czyz said.
Czyz is right. And one-run
victories aren’t supposed to
happen against the
Cornhuskers. Especially when a
team, as Kansas was, was held
hitless for four innings. And
when that team, as Kansas did,
looked down-and-out just three
weeks earlier.
“We have to make every play
when we’re playing a team as
good as Nebraska,” Price said.
And they did, at least for one
game. So this weekend, go out
to your favorite bar and toast
coach Price.
Just make sure to avoid the
after parties. I hear they can get
rowdy.

Pitchers rally
unsuccessfully
The Kansas softball team’s home winning
streak came to an end yesterday as it fell to
Nebraska, 7-3.
Nebraska jumped to an early 2-0 lead after
four innings.
The Jayhawks showed some life as Elle
Pottorf, freshman catcher, threw out Anne
Steffan when she tried to steal second in the third
inning.
Nebraska pitcher Ashley DeBuhr held the
Jayhawks hitless through four innings. She ended
her complete game victory with 11 strikeouts.
Kansas coach Tracy Bunge said DeBuhr pitched
a good game and her curve ball kept the hitters
out in front.
Nebraska extended the lead to seven with a big
fifth inning, scoring five runs.
The ‘Hawks used three pitchers to get out of
the inning, giving up five walks. Kansas allowed
eight free passes during the game, with seven
bases-on-balls and one hit-by-pitch.

Signees
shine in
national
spotlight
Kansas fans got their first glimpse of next year’s
Jayhawks last night when Mario Chalmers, Julian
Wright and Micah Downs hooped it up at the
McDonald’s All-American game, televised on
ESPN.
The West team, which included all three
Kansas signees, fell to the East team, 115-100.
Chalmers, from Bartlett High School in
Anchorage, Alaska, shined in the high school all-
star game. He led the West team with 20 points
last night and won the three-point competition on
Tuesday.
All three future Jayhawks lit it up for the West.
Wright, a forward from Homewood-Flossmoor
High School in Chicago Heights, Ill., was on the
dunking end of a first-half highlight.
He received a transition alley-oop pass from
Byron Eaton, an Oklahoma State signee, with
about a minute left in the first half.
Self has described Wright as the most versatile
player of the three.
“He is a basketball player,” Self said. “He just
goes out there and does a little bit of everything.”
Wright showed the ability to take the defense
off the dribble.
On one play, he drove past his defender on the
baseline and went up and under for a hard-earned
lay-in.
Chalmers was the star for the West, though. He
proved that he had the potential to be the most
offensive-minded point guard in recent Kansas
history.
