Hard up for money
Staying up all night cleaning
Allen Fieldhouse is not the easi-
est way to raise money, but for
members of the Asian-American
Student Union and other KU
student organizations few
sources of money exist.
Student Senate rejected the
renewal of block funding, where
organizations receive an unfet-
tered amount of money, in 2001
to multicultural student organi-
zations. As a result, multicultur-
al organizations have shifted
their goals of educating students
about different cultures to learn-
ing fundraising strategies.
Student organizations are
now trying to get back the fund-
ing they lost.
Currently AASU, the
Hispanic-American Leadership
Organization, Black Student
Union and First Nations
Student Association receive
their money through line-item
They must develop a budget
requesting money for every sin-
gle expense they project for the
next year.
“We do an obscene amount of
fundraising,” said Victoria Li,
president of the AASU and
Overland Park junior. “We don’t
have enough money as an
organization to do the things
that we want to.”
Multicultural student organi-
zations like AASU were able to
bring higher profile speakers
and develop more educational
programs for students when
they were allotted block fund-
Robert Page, director of the
Office of Multicultural Affairs,
said he was in support of bring-
ing back block funding.
“I think it allows the flexibili-
ty to program more efficiently,”
he said.
He also said block funding
would help students develop
programs for education and not
focus on fundraising.
Bryan Young, Student
Senate treasurer and Wichita
senior, said that line-item fund-
ing was best-suited for these
organizations because it made
them plan one year in advance
instead of two years. But he
said that Senate would be will-
ing to grant block funding sta-
tus again if the organizations
made convincing arguments
and had a department oversee
the money.
The main expense these
organizations have every year is
covering registration for yearly
conferences. Student Senate
pays for it, but the money does
not cover lodging and travel

Drinking in the streets
The sidewalks along
Massachusetts Street have
become a valuable commodity for
local bar and restaurant owners.
Since the city smoking ban
took effect last July, some bar
and restaurant owners have
sought new ways to retain cus-
tomers who smoke. One option
is to obtain a sidewalk dining
license, which allows businesses
to serve food and beverages on
part of the sidewalk, where the
smoking ban does not apply.
For the last two months the
city commission has discussed
altering the requirements for
sidewalk dining licenses so
more businesses could create
sidewalk venues.
Businesses must make 70 per-
cent of their revenue from food
and nonalcoholic drinks to get a
sidewalk dining license. The
commission has discussed vari-
ous options, from decreasing this
percentage to eliminating the
food sales requirement entirely.
City commissioner Sue Hack
said allowing more businesses to
obtain sidewalk dining licenses
would alleviate some of the pres-
sures from the smoking ban.
“I really believe it’s worth a try,”
Hack said. “If this will help some
of our local bar owners stay in
business, then we should try it.”
Some restaurants have
already gained dining approval.
Teller’s restaurant, 746
Massachusetts St., will build an
outdoor dining area in front of the
restaurant during the next month.
Sidewalk dining will contribute to
the appeal of downtown, Matt
Hyde, general manager, said.
“For us, it’s adding to the fab-
ric of downtown,” Hyde said.
“More people on the sidewalk
will mean more people spending
money, which contributes to the
success of the city.”
Hyde said the restaurant
would build a permanent gate to
separate the dining area from
the rest of the sidewalk.
But more people on the side-
walk isn’t always good, said city
commissioner David Schauner.
Schauner said he was con-
cerned that changing license
requirements would result in
more smoking and drinking on
the sidewalk than dining.
“We need a downtown that is
appealing to all kinds of people
— students, families, visitors,”
Schauner said. “Corrals of peo-
ple smoking and drinking is not
the kind of street scape we need
in Lawrence.”
Since March 29, the commis-
sion has put a moratorium on
new sidewalk dining licenses so
regulations can be evaluated
and developed. The commission
will reconsider license require-
ments after it receives the evalu-
ations on May 13.
If the commission does
change the requirements, Jerry
Neverve, owner of Red Lyon
Tavern, plans to apply for side-
walk dining. Neverve said his
business did not meet current
requirements for a license. If his
business obtains a license, cus-
tomers will be able to take their
beverages outside if they smoke
— something they can’t do now.
“A lot of our customers are
outside already,” Neverve said.
“We would like to be more hos-
pitable to them.”
Some business owners are
content with the current
Dan Hughes, owner of
Sunflower Outdoor and Bike
Shop, said he was concerned
that more sidewalk dining
licenses would cause more trash
on Massachusetts Street.
“Since the smoking ban has
gone into effect, we’ve seen a
ten-fold increase in cleanup,”
Hughes said. “The atmosphere
in downtown Lawrence is one
of the best in Kansas. It needs to
be regulated to say that not
everybody can put stuff out on
the sidewalk.”

Housing, meal
costs increase
Maintenance adds to hike
Student housing expenses
will increase next year primarily
in residence halls where expens-
es will cost $5,802 — a $176
This is part of a series of
annual increases. A standard
two-person bedroom and a meal
plan will cost $1,388 more than
it did five years ago.
The prices have turned some
freshmen from the living in resi-
dence halls.

freshman, will move from
Corbin Hall to Jefferson
Commons Apartments, 2511 W.
31st St., next year.

Maybe Brandon Snook should’ve
voted for John Kerry.
For not believing in original sin,
George W. Bush — portrayed as the
Grand Inquisitor — orders Snook to
be flogged and his professor to be
hung in front of a cheering crowd.
This is a scene from Leonard
Bernstein’s “Candide,” a 1956 musical
adaptation of Voltaire’s literary classic.
Tim Ocel, associate professor of
opera, modernized the musical for
today’s political climate.
“It just seemed very timely,” Ocel
said. “When Bernstein wrote the piece
it was a big reaction to the House of
Un-American Activities. This is a big
reaction to Bush administration.”
The House Committee of Un-
American Activities was most famous-
ly known for trying to suppress com-
munist propaganda from American
Leonard Bernstein, who also wrote
“West Side Story,” was blacklisted by
the committee.
The Grand Inquisitor, or President
Bush, sentences two people in tan
hoods to death.
The two people represent Abu
Ghraib prisoners being punished and
the process of blurring of church and
state, Ocel said.
Despite voting for Bush in the fall elec-
tions, Snook, Richardson, Texas senior,
takes the musical for what it is — satire.
“People thought I would have a prob-
lem with it,” Snook said. “It is what it is.
It’s just like ‘Animal Farm’ but making
fun of political systems of today.”
The tale of “Candide,” which was
written by French writer Voltaire in the
1700s, follows the adventures of the
young protagonist Candide. Candide
was expelled from his home for falling
in love with his foster sister,
Cunegonde, played by Akiko Imakawa,
Overland Park graduate student.
This performance of Candide
should inspire the audience to take an
active role in the world, said Kate
Giessel, Larned junior, who plays
Voltaire in the musical.
Throughout the musical, Candide’s
unbridled optimism diminishes as
reality sets in.
“It’s my hope that the audience will
leave energized,” Giessel said. “And
ready to take off the rose-colored
glasses and take a look around.”

‘Candide’ opens tonight
Satire adapts a literary, musical classic
‘Millions’ is sweet, not sappy
Played by newcomer Alexander
Nathan Etel, Damian is a 7-year-old
British boy with freckled cheeks and
big, blue puppy-dog eyes. That face —
open and innocent, the spitting image
of childhood whimsy — is enough to
carry Danny Boyle’s enchanting new
family film, “Millions,” opening today
at Liberty Hall, 644 Massachusetts
Damian and his big brother,
Anthony (Lewis Owen McGibbon),
have just lost their mother, so the boys
move into a dreamy new house with
their father, Ronnie (James Nesbitt).
While Anthony pretends everything’s
fine, Damian retreats into a fertile fan-
tasy world. Saints come to visit him,
from St. Peter to St. Clare of Assisi,
ensuring the lad his mother is in the
right place.
Then, in the midst of one of these
saintly visits, a suitcase stuffed with
cash drops out of the sky. Damian
suggests reporting the money to the
police, but Anthony has his doubts.
Further complicating matters is a
scary-looking stranger, played by
Christopher Fulford, who starts
hanging around asking questions
about the money as if he knew where
it came from. Also, the U.K. is about
to switch its currency to the Euro,
which will render the loot worthless
unless the boys come up with a use
for it fast.
Unapologetically religious, this kid-
friendly fable represents a dramatic
departure for Boyle, whose previous
films include the Ewan MacGregor
junkie drama, “Trainspotting,” and
the zombie horror flick “28 Days
Boyle’s signature is all over this
film, which he imbues with character-
istic touches of surrealism. The con-
struction of Damian’s new house flies
by in a series of fast-motion effects
and dizzying architectural details.
And the scene when Damian finds the
money begins with a memorable
image of the suitcase bouncing along
a train track like a basketball from
In fact, much of “Millions” seems
heaven-sent. Frank Cottrell Boyce’s
screenplay finds the right note of
Spielbergian wonder before its fan-
tastical conclusion, which not only
packs an emotional wallop but also
presents a positive social message for
kids. The cinematography by
Anthony Dod Mantle, who also shot
“28 Days Later,” pops off the screen
in gorgeous primary colors, while
John Murphy’s lush original score
lends the film the magical feeling of a
bedtime story.
But the real find here is Etel as
Damien, who may be the first instant-
ly lovable screen kid since Drew
Barrymore in “E.T. The
Extraterrestrial.” Damien exists on
such a pure level between fantasy and
faith that he captures your heart. It’s a
place movies should go to more often,
and one that suits Boyle’s artistic
virtues as a director.

House can’t override Sebelius’
veto on clinic regulations
TOPEKA — House members who oppose
abortion failed yesterday to override Gov.
Kathleen Sebelius’ veto of a bill imposing addi-
tional regulations on abortion clinics.
The vote was 82-42 — two votes short of the
minimum needed to send the bill to the Senate
where some supporters felt they had the votes to
put the legislation into law.
“I think we could have made it happen,” said
Sen. Nick Jordan (R-Shawnee)
The failure to overturn Sebelius’ veto of April
15 angered supporters of the bill who vowed to
campaign against House members who support-
ed the veto and the governor in next year’s elec-
“It’s the kind of vote that’s going to come back
and haunt legislators who voted against it and
the governor,” said Mary Kay Culp, executive
director of Kansans for Life. “The people of
Kansas understand the need for this.”
Absent the bill, abortion opponents argued,
only a complaint to Board of Healing Arts can
result in a physician being sanctioned for unsafe
conditions. They say it would have protected
women’s health.
“We’re disappointed the political machinery
works the way it does, that the governor peeled
off key votes,” Culp said.

A police department in
Arizona wants to put a mon-
key on its SWAT team.
According to The Associated
Press, the department sees a
monkey as “the ultimate
SWAT reconnaissance tool,”
and it wants to train the little
guy “for special-ops intelli-
gence.” The police officers
are currently seeking federal grants to pay for the
monkey, his food and veterinary care. I’m not
making this up.
The cops will give the monkey a tiny bullet-
proof vest, just like 50 Cent’s kid’s, and a two-
way radio — although I’m unsure exactly why
this monkey would need a
radio. The report doesn’t
mention whether the mon-
key-cop gets a Glock.
If a monkey can get a job
and healthcare, employment
opportunities for humans
with English degrees — like
me — must be pretty good,
right? Well, sort of.
Employers do expect to
hire more college graduates
than last year, According to
the National Association of
Colleges and Employers. And
some of this year’s graduates,
especially people with busi-
ness and engineering degrees, will earn consider-
ably higher starting salaries.
For example, the starting pay for accounting
graduates increased 3.9 percent to $43,809. And
yearly wages for engineers and computer scien-
tists start at more than $50,000.
But a recent CNN report stated that the average
starting pay for people with liberal arts degrees is
$29,060, down 3.6 percent from last year. My
English degree falls squarely
into this worthless category,
and I have a hard time
understanding why.
Sure, English majors can’t
design a road in such a way
that passengers won’t get
dizzy and vomit when they
drive their cars over hills and
around bends. And I don’t
know what my computer means when the screen
AT O//E:0000009560098.”
But, can civil engineers recite the “Songs of
Innocence” from memory? Can a computer pro-
grammer fix your dangling modifier or write a
vivid poem about carsick-
ness? Neither can I, but some
English majors can.
Seriously though, I’m not
mad at engineers. I guess any-
one who takes that many
math courses deserves more
I am mad at that monkey.
You see, CNN also reported
that while salaries for some
graduates have gone up, job
perks have been cut. So while
the monkey gets a Kevlar vest
and a Glock; I’ll get a desk
and a nasty pile of dangling
modifiers to work on.
But I’ll happily take $30,000 a year — it’s a lot
of money. And I don’t have a choice. If I don’t get
a job when I graduate this fall, I’ll have to go
home and work for my dad. And he’ll only pay me
in sandwiches. I could turn to a life of crime, but
with my luck, I’d be the first bank robber ever shot
by a cop monkey.

Smarmy Lawyer: If released,

Sideshow Bob: (Faking sur-
prise) Bart Simpson?!
(Chuckling) The spirited little
scamp who (Bitterly) twice
foiled my evil schemes and

ominously) dank, urine-
soaked hell hole?
Parole Board Member #1: Ah, we object to the
term “urine-soaked hell hole,” when you could
have said “pee-pee-soaked heck hole.”
Bob: Cheerfully withdrawn.
While this quote more likely will elicit a few
laughs from the pathetic people like myself who
memorize every bit of Simpsons quote material, it
also demonstrates the ridiculousness of our society’s
view toward cursing. If the institutions that guide
our moral compass, such as Wal-Mart and the
Parents Television Council, stopped for a moment
in their war against the proliferation of words like
“damn,” they would realize they are on the losing
side of a battle that has existed for centuries.
According to Mary Marshall’s book,
“Bozzimacco: Origins and Meanings of Oaths and
Swear Words,” the first-known swear words and
subsequent sanctions date back to the Greeks.
Back then swear words were just that: words to
declare oaths. And, in the typical egalitarian fash-
ion of the Greeks, swearing was a privilege given to
all. But, Marshall wrote, “Children were allowed
to swear by Hercules but not in the house. They
could do it in the streets if they liked.”
The Romans perhaps thought they could
improve upon this and, according to Bill Bryson
in “The Mother Tongue,” they had 800 “dirty”
words. Compared to our meager 20 — not includ-
ing things like “crap” or “boobs” — they even
outdo us, except in euphemisms for sex, which
luckily, the English language tops out at 1,200
words. To be fair, our culture hasn’t been the only
one obsessed with swearing. Apparently during
Elizabethan times, during which the queen her-
self swore like a sailor, swearing was a sort of a
pastime. Marshall wrote that plays were filled
with lowbrow language including tasty morsels
such as “I fart at thee,” “Thou whoreson knave”
and “A turd i’ your teeth.” It
was during this period that
the Puritans relocated and
formed a much more moral
society. Oh, wait.
The problem with trying to
regulate swearing is that lan-
guage has no ultimate authority
and continually evolves over
time. Swearing, because it is
associated more with low culture, tends to have a
shorter life span. Trends come and go and cursing is
a part of that. Bryson explains that “cunt” was at one
time harmless. “Shit” was acceptable until the early
19th century, as was “prick” until the 18th century.
But if you were to say the word “zooterkins” in 16th-
century England or “puppy” in the 19th century, you
would be making grave insults. Even just recently the
word “queer” has undergone significant changes,
from meaning odd to gay.
America has since become more egalitarian and
lax in making class distinctions, but swear words
up until post World War II were a badge of identi-
ty for the lower classes, said Donald Watkins,
associate professor of linguistics at the University.
On the other hand, he said, anyone in high
society would never dream of uttering a curse
word. Now everyone can and almost does so will-
ingly. He said many times professors would drop
an f-bomb to make their students feel like they
were on the same level. “Language is like dress,
we use it to identify ourselves,” Watkins said.
Even though swearing is an ephemeral entity, it
lasts because cursing is flexible. Depending on how
words are used, who uses them and what is said, a
plethora of things can be considered curse words
and evoke different emotions. The versatility is
almost awe-inspiring. Usually it is reserved for peo-
ple expressing their anger verbally in place of violent
action, humor or for those people trying to make up
for their limited vocabulary. In any case, cursing is
here to stay, for good or for bad, because there is a
need for it. Because while you can replace a four-let-
ter word, you can never replace that unique feeling
you have after stubbing your toe or discovering that
your significant other has cheated on you.

Monkey vs. English major;
earning potential in question
Swear words express
hell of a lot of emotions
I feel the need to respond to the issues that
Sam Hopkins has risen in his column on
Tuesday, “Jews must be self-critical in Middle
East controversy.”
Hopkins portrays Israelis as the antagonist. He
neglected to mention, however, that of the 1,047
Israelis that have been killed by Palestinian ter-
rorists since September 2000, 732 were civilians
and of the 7,161 injured in terrorist attacks 5,009
were civilians. These women, men and children
were attacked at Passover Seders, weddings,
and night clubs.
What does Hopkins suggest that we do? Sit
and watch as our families are murdered? Why
should Israel not have the right to protect its citi-
zens? Israel is not playing the game of “he hit
me first” as Hopkins suggests, rather Israel is
forced to respond to those who perpetrate these
murderous actions.
Israel’s former Prime Minister Ehud Barak
offered Yasser Arafat the most far-reaching and
comprehensive peace deal that would have cre-
ated a Palestinian state close to five years ago.
Instead of accepting this peace offer, the
Palestinians responded with violence.
So how should Jews be “self-critical” of
Israel? Should we criticize Israelis for defending
themselves, initiating numerous peace agree-
ments or being the only democracy in the
Middle East?

Eric Schaumburg missed the point of David

The “Kiss In” was meant to put a spotlight on
the ubiquitous homophobia in our society that
makes a simple show of affection into a shock-
ing spectacle when shared by two people of the
same sex.
A photo of two women hugging does not
raise awareness of anything. Two women hug-

does such a photo help advance queer rights or
fight homophobia?
Mr. Schaumburg suggested that we might
accomplish our goals by being moderate and

In the fight against seasonal
allergies, students may be
opposed to using conventional
medications to relieve their
For those students, there
might be an alternative they
can use to stifle their sniffles.
Honey has been used as a
remedy for various problems
for centuries, John Brown, pro-
fessor of molecular bio-
sciences, said. In recent years,
studies have shown that con-
suming locally produced honey
may help reduce seasonal aller-
gies because honey contains
local pollen, which people
have the most exposure to.
“It’s not just an old wives’
tale,” he said.
The body doesn’t usually
develop an immune response
to things ingested, which is
called an oral tolerance,
Brown said.
The theory is that if one con-
sumes locally made honey, the
body will adjust to the pollen it
was made from and lessen the
chance of allergic reaction.
Unfortunately, the studies
aren’t definitive, and there may
be other factors that make
honey an inappropriate reme-
dy. Students may have a food
allergy and be unable to con-
sume honey.
Brown also warned that stu-
dents with children should not
give honey to them.
Honey contains the bacteria
Clostridium botulinum,
which can poison children one
year old and younger because
their intestines allow the bacte-
ria to thrive.
These are exceptions, how-
ever. Brown said students
should still investigate the pos-
sibility by talking to an aller-
Besides honey, there are
other natural alternatives stu-
dents can use to relieve their
allergies, Tyra Kalman,
Community Mercantile well-
ness manager, said.
Students can skip the bee
middleman and ingest straight
pollen. Since allergy season
began, sales of bee pollen have
gone up, she said. Other natu-
ral alternatives include elder-
berry juice, pleurisy root and
nettle, Kalman said.
While Kalman sad her aller-
gies were too severe to be treat-
ed just with natural remedies,
she said they are healthier.
“Anything we can do to get
off the pharmaceuticals is
good,” Kalman said.
Conventional medicine does
have its place, but she said that
if people were able to use an
alternative, they should do so.

Conventional medicine not only option for allergy sufferers
Spring brings pollen, sniffles and sneezes
Spring is here. Everything is
green and growing, and the
weather is starting to warm up.
But for those with seasonal aller-
gies, enjoying spring is hard
when living in a haze of sneezing,
coughing and congestion.
For one student, allergy symp-
toms haven’t been too bad. Kyle
Hlavacek, Overland Park senior,
said his allergies were less intense
this year.
But for Shannon Stewart,
Lee’s Summit, Mo., junior, this
year topped all the rest. Her aller-
gies gave her bronchitis and two
eye infections, all within a week.
“They just seem to get worse
every year,” she said.
Seasonal allergies are the
result of the immune system
reacting to pollen, Patricia
Denning, Watkins Memorial
Health Center chief of staff, said.
When the body encounters
pollen, it produces an antibody
and histamine. These cause side
effects such as swelling, sinus
congestion and red and itchy
eyes, she said.
While most people have mild
seasonal allergies, they can lead
to more serious problems, such
as eye and sinus infections.
People with asthma are also at
risk because allergies can trigger
breathing problems or an asthma
attack, Denning said.
How to relieve allergies is a
question people ask every year as
they break out the tissues.
A reduction in outdoor activity
is the best preventive measure
any student could take, especial-
ly on windy days, Denning said.
Those with eye problems can
wear sunglasses to keep pollen
out of their eyes.
An air conditioner can help filter
the air, even if only the fan is on.
Students should check the filter
regularly to ensure the best results,
she said. Students should also keep
doors and windows shut.
“I know it feels good to feel the
breeze, but you’re just letting
pollen in,” Denning said.
Beyond prevention, there are
prescription and over-the-counter
drugs available to provide relief to
Prescription drugs can be most
effective, but can cost between $1
to $1.50 per dose per day.
Only students with the most
severe problems should receive
allergy shots. These are available
by prescription from an allergist.
Hlavacek said he was lucky
this year. His allergies have been
less intense this year for some
reason but he didn’t know why.
Because his allergies aren’t
bothering him, Hlavacek said he
wouldn’t stop going outside and
would just rely on his medication.
But at Stewart’s apartment the
air conditioner is running.

10-year-old charged
in father’s murder

the Kansas Relays. They are tied
for 23rd in the nation, along
with Kansas State, Arkansas

It’s must-win time for the
Kansas baseball team.
With only 12 conference
games left in the regular sea-
son, the Jayhawks are putting
added emphasis on their
Sunflower Showdown series
this weekend against Kansas
State. The Jayhawks are 4-10
in Big 12 Conference play,
stuck in last place. But a series

Kansas State could possibly

First there was last weekend’s sweep of
Oklahoma, which, before it happened, seemed
an impossible outcome. The Sooners were the
fifth-ranked team in the country, and the
Jayhawks hadn’t swept a ranked opponent
since 2001. Oklahoma was also the top-hitting
team in the Big 12 Conference heading into the
match-up, leading the league in batting average,
runs, RBI and on-base percentage. Kansas,
meanwhile, was ranked near the bottom in
The Jayhawks’ first victory on Saturday
seemed improbable enough — a blown lead in
the top of the seventh inning, a comeback home
run in the bottom of the eighth, capped with
junior second baseman Jessica Moppin’s game-
winning hit in the ninth.
That’s not how the balls are supposed to
bounce for a team that’s only 3-7 in conference
when it’s playing a national powerhouse. And
heck, the second game in the series wasn’t even
close. Freshman pitcher Christina Ross shut
down the Sooners with her four-hitter in the 4-
1 victory. So much for that dynamic Oklahoma
offense; chalk up the sweep for the Jayhawks.
But then came the hard part. Fluke victories

Junior shortstop Destiny Frankenstein attempts to catch the ball as North
Dakota State junior Meghan Norris slides safely into second base during the
first game of their double-header yesterday. Frankenstein had one run during
the first game and the only run of the second game in a double victory for
the Jayhawks.
Kassie Humphreys, sophomore
pitcher, threw the first game for the
Jayhawks, striking out six and
allowing two runs off two hits.
“Kassie played well,” Kansas
coach Tracy Bunge said. “It was a
solid move forward.”
She said Humphreys threw more
aggressively and was playing better
after struggling early in the season.

Five Kansas golfers named to
Academic All-Big 12 team
The University of Kansas
men’s golf team has proved
its smarts not only on the
links, but in the classroom as
well. Five Kansas golfers
were named to the 2005

members all maintained a
GPA of 3.2 or higher. The
second team members had a
GPA between 3.0 and 3.19.
To be eligible for the aca-
demic team, students must
maintain a GPA of 3.0 over
the previous two semesters
and participate in 60 percent
of the team’s events.
The Jayhawks will take
their smarts to Trinity, Texas,

Team prepared to pay back rivals
Members of the Kansas row-
ing team will compete in the Big
12 Conference Championship
where they will face two teams
they lost two earlier this season.
The women will compete against
rivals Texas and Kansas State
tomorrow in Austin, Texas.
The rowers have been com-
peting every weekend, except
last, since the middle of March
to prepare for the regatta cham-
pionship. The team was sup-
posed to race against Cincinnati
and Buffalo last weekend, but
the regatta was canceled because
of severe weather. Senior rower
Ashlea Kramer said the time off
would not be a detriment.
“Competing after an off-
weekend shouldn’t affect us,”
Kramer said. “It actually makes
us more motivated and more
pumped for tomorrow. We’re
ready to race.”
Kansas coach Rob Catloth
also said the unexpected break
should not be a problem.
“We’ve competed in so many
races that it shouldn’t affect us
one way or the other,” he said.
“We would’ve liked to race, but
the bad weather could’ve been
Kansas raced against Texas in
a dual match-up March 26 and
raced against K-State in the
Kansas Cup April 9. The
Jayhawks Varsity Eight boat lost
the Kansas Cup by one second
and lost against Texas by 10 sec-
“I think they’re ready to prove
themselves to these two teams,”
assistant coach Jennifer Myers
said. “I know they’re excited to
see how much speed they’ve
gained since the last time they
raced them.”
Racing against rivals always
gets the team pumped up,
Kramer said.
“It’s good that we get to race
them again because we’re going
to be able to prove to them that
we’re right up there with them,”
Kramer said. “We’re all excited
for this.”
Kansas has always had a huge
rivalry with Texas, she said.
“We’ve been doing a lot better
in practice so we’ll see how
things go against Texas,” Kramer
said. “It’s a school that we
always struggle with. I think
tomorrow we’ll be as close to
them as we’ve ever been.”
Catloth said he noticed
improvement in practice.
“We’re really starting to per-
form well,” he said. “It’ll be good
to see them row with the ability
and high level that they’re at
The season will come to a
close shortly, with only two
more competition dates. Kansas
could compete in the NCAA

races they possibly can,” Myers
said. “The best races have to be

Minnesota Twins second baseman Nick Punto throws to first for a double play, ending
the second inning as Kansas City Royals’ Tony Graffanino slides into second yesterday at
Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Mo. The Twins defeated the Royals 6-5 in 11 innings,
dropping Kansas City’s record to 5-17. The Royals have lost their last eight games.
Brewers put kibosh on
Cardinal winning streak
ST. LOUIS — Chris Capuano won for
the first time since Aug. 8 as the
Milwaukee Brewers beat the St. Louis
Cardinals 4-3 yesterday and avoided a
three-game sweep.
Russell Branyan homered and Brady
Clark had a two-run double for the
Brewers, who won for only the third
time in 13 games and defeated the
Cardinals for the first time in six meet-
ings this season.
Reggie Sanders hit his fifth home run
for the Cardinals, who lost for only the
second time in 13 games.
Capuano (1-2) gave up two runs and
five hits in 6 1/3 innings, and he doubled
for only the second hit in 39 at-bats by
Brewers pitchers this season. Derrick
Turnbow worked the ninth for his second
Jason Marquis (3-1) gave up four runs
and five hits in seven innings.

tory would be vital to the
Jayhawks’ postseason hopes.
“If we win the first two games,
then absolutely we’ll go out
there and go for the jugular,”
Price said. “But any time you
talk about sweeping you set
yourself up for failure on the
weekend. We want to play hard
each day and win each day to
win the series.”
Kansas State (21-18, 6-12 Big
12) is no longer the doormat of
the Big 12. The Wildcats have
won seven of their last eight
games, highlighted by taking
two out of three from Texas
A&M last weekend. That tri-
umph moved them into the
eighth place in the conference,
which would allow them to be
the last team into the Big 12
Tournament next month.
The Wildcats are led by sec-
ond-year coach Brad Hill, who
was hired to build the program
from the ground up. He won the
2003 Division II National
Championship at Central
Missouri State before taking the
job at Kansas State. Before that,
Hill was the hitting coach for
the Jayhawks from 1991-1994,
helping the the team to reach its
only College World Series in
On offense, senior outfielder
Terry Blunt paces the Wildcats.
Plugged into the leadoff spot in
most games, Blunt is batting
.348 and has an on-base per-
centage of .426.
Junior righty Adam Cowart
anchors the Kansas State pitch-
ing staff. In 10 starts, he has a
record of 6-2 with a 4.06 ERA.
He also has struck out 46 batters
while walking only seven.
Kansas junior outfielder A.J.
Van Slyke said that he and his
teammates would be ready to
slug it out with K-State.
“We know we can hit,” Van
Slyke said. “We need to pick up
the pitchers if they’re struggling
or the defense when it’s strug-
gling. Eventually everything will
come together.”
One important piece of the
puzzle is junior closer Don
Czyz. He has struggled lately but
looked impressive in closing out
the game against New Mexico
State on Tuesday. He kept the
Aggies off the scoreboard in two
innings of work.
“I told him in the airport on
Sunday that a year ago he had
two or three bad outings and
then went out against Missouri
and closed out two victories,”
Price said. “He was lights out
the rest of the season. Hopefully
that game will get him going in
that direction.”
Czyz said he was starting to
come around after the New
Mexico State game.
“I had some tough times last
week, with a blown save and
two losses, a lot of earned runs
and hits,” Czyz said. “I hope I’m
back on track now, and the way

victory fresh in her mind. She won the
women’s discus last weekend at the
Kansas Relays with a throw of 168-
inches. Her performance left her
ranked fourth in the Big 12.
“I had the choice of going to Drake
or Penn, because Drake is my home
meet,” Emsick said. “It would have
been big to go back home and go to
Drake. Penn is the biggest meet of the
year, and I’ve never been to that.”
Athletics director Lew Perkins held
the position of associate athletics
director at the University of
Pennsylvania for three and a half years
and oversaw the Penn relays.
“The Penn Relays is the premier
track event in the nation,” Perkins
said. “The Kansas Relays was once
equal, but in the last 10 to 15 years,
the Penn Relays have passed them.”
Perkins said that the Penn Relays
set the standard for collegiate relays in
the nation. This is a standard that ever
since he arrived at the University of
Kansas, he’s been trying to meet.
“One thing we want to get back to
is the golden days where the Kansas
Relays and the Penn Relays were the
two best meets in the country,” he

Colorado ends Kansas’ tennis
season in Big 12 tournament
The Kansas tennis season came to an end yes-
terday, as the Jayhawks fell to the Colorado
Buffaloes, 4-2, in the first round of the Big 12 tour-
nament, in Austin, Texas.
“Even though it was a disappointing loss, I am
happy with how the team competed today,”
Kansas coach Amy Hall-Holt said. “We have had to
overcome a lot of obstacles this season, but I am
very proud of the effort put forth today.”
Kansas (4-17, 3-8 Big 12) lost the doubles point
for the eighth consecutive match.
In singles, Kansas earned two victories, courtesy
of freshmen Elizaveta Avdeeva and Lauren
Avdeeva defeated Colorado’s Lynzee Kever in
straight sets, 6-4, 6-2. Less than two weeks ago,
Kever knocked off Avdeeva in three sets.
Hommell disposed of Martina Sedivec, 6-3, 6-2.
The Buffaloes, behind solid team play, main-
tained the momentum after winning the doubles
Kendra Strandemo ousted Kansas junior
Christine Skoda, 6-2, 6-4. Also, Jessica Vanderdys

can beat the best team on a given day.
Sustained success, on the other hand,
is far more difficult to come by.
After all, the sweep against
Oklahoma was certainly the biggest
pair of victories Kansas has enjoyed
this season, but they were not the
only big victories. Kansas’ 5-3 victo-
ry at Missouri earlier this month was
big, as was Ross’ three-hit shutout at
Nebraska last week.
But what those victories had in
common is that each was followed
by a loss. After beating the Tigers,
the Jayhawks were swept by the
Bears of Baylor, and after shucking
the Huskers, they fell to Blue Jays of

Following the climactic series last
weekend, it would have been easy to
come out flat this week in two non-
conference double-headers against
Arkansas and North Dakota State.
Neither of those teams is
Oklahoma. Arkansas has twice as
many losses as victories, and North
Dakota is a .500 team. It would have
been easy to not get sufficiently
pumped up, to not work hard
enough after the epic victories
against the Sooners.
But not this time. Kansas swept
its double-header against Arkansas
on Tuesday and did the same against
North Dakota State yesterday. The
Jayhawks beat the Razorbacks with
their bats, scoring a combined 13
runs during the two games. They
beat the Bison with pitching and
defense, allowing only two runs the
first game and winning with a
shutout in the second.
By sweeping yesterday, the
Jayhawks pushed their win streak to
six, their largest such streak of the
season, and have momentum on
their side with five games remaining
in the regular season.
“This is the time of the year when
you want to be hot,” coach Tracy
Bunge said after yesterday’s victo-

Heisman winner
signs with Chiefs
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Jason
White, who won the Heisman
Trophy at Oklahoma but was
snubbed in the NFL draft, was
signed yesterday for a tryout at
Kansas City’s rookie camp.
White and a number of other
rookie free agents will join the

er, made a home run along with Frankenstein
and Moppin in the first game. However, Bunge

Offensively in game two, the lone run came
from Frankenstein, who hit a solo home run in
the third inning. Nettie Fierros, junior third
baseman, was the only other Jayhawk to get a

day, Bunge said the team played flat in both
games. She said she felt the team survived the
day and was fortunate to win.

Kansas will take on Texas Tech in a weekend
“We need to finish out strong and hope the
ball bounces our way,” Bunge said of the
remaining six games for the regular season.
