inda Wang was chosen as
the designated driver when
she went out with a group
of friends last week. She had to get
up early for work the next day and
didnt want to get too crazy, so
she ordered a sof drink at Hen-
rys, 11 E. Eighth St.
I told them I was the DD. I
took out the money to pay for it,
but they didnt take it, said Wang,
a senior from Lawrence.
Many bars around town of-
fer free non-alcoholic beverages
or snacks to those who iden-
tify themselves as the designated
driver for the night. In order to
make this option known to stu-
dents and incorporate a better
method to discern designated
drivers from the rest of bar-goers,
Student Senate and the Jayhawk
Buddy System teamed up to cre-
ate the Responsible Refreshments
Nine bars and restaurants are
participating in the program,
and each received a shipment of
wristbands that act as tickets for
receive free refreshments. People
who identify themselves as the
DD will receive a wristband when
they enter the location.
Tapas, 724 Massachusetts St.,
serves free chips and queso or
salsa to the designated drivers.
Jackie Woolf, bar manager, said
employees wear T-shirts to pro-
mote Responsible Refreshments,
and about a dozen people have
taken advantage of the program
so far.
Weve gotten a really good re-
action from it, Woolf said. Were
happy to give them that, and its
a positive thing to show other
Ive been at two locations
where weve had our DD use the
system, and they loved it, said
Hannah Bolton, student body
president. Te free queso at
Tapas is a big incentive.
Frank DeSalvo, Associate Vice
Provost for Student Success,
said the program would act as a
reminder to students that this op-
tion is available.
My sense is that there is a
growing number of students who
are actually going through the
process of fguring out whos go-
ing to be the designated driver for
the evening, DeSalvo said. From
where I sit, the more we can get
students to do that, the better.
Brandon Woodard, student
body vice president, met with
DeSalvo during the summer to
discuss the implementation of the
program, which was part of the
platform that KUnited ran on last
spring. DeSalvo set up a meeting
with Woodard and several Law-
rence bar owners. Te response
was positive, and DeSalvo expects
that, through time, the number
of participating locations will in-
Te bars are in competition
and so if they fnd that people are
frequenting these bars that of-
fer this program more than their
own, theyre going to need to step
up, DeSalvo said. My guess is
that if they contacted every bar
up and down Mass. or anywhere
in Lawrence, I cant imagine any
bar owner turning them down.
Te goal of the program is to
increase student safety and ofer
another route besides SafeRide
or SafeBus. Wang said she would
now consider being a designated
driver again.
I think its nice to not have to
pay for something non-alcoholic
to drink at a bar for being the re-
sponsible one, she said.
Several bars and restaurants
are participating in the program
including: Tonic, 728 Massachu-
setts St., Tapas, 724 Massachusetts
St., Cadillac Ranch, 2515 W. Sixth

Tuesday night, Student Union
Activities ofered students the
opportunity to learn one thing
many are interested in but not
may know much about: sex.
Tis opportunity came when
Daniel Pack-
ard and his
o n e - m a n
show, Live
Group Sex
T h e r a p y ,
arrived at
the Kansas
Union. Many
students came to
the event not knowing what to
I have no idea what this show
is about, said Grace Nicholson,
a freshman from Overland Park.
Im assuming just a lot about
sex. Tats what drew me into go-
ing in the frst place.
However, sex was not the only
reason people came to the show.
I really want to laugh, said
Amir Moghaddami, a sopho-
more from Wichita. Its kind of
interesting, and Ive never been
a part of something like this. It
should be pretty cool!
When the show started, it was
clear that it would be much dif-
ferent than anyone anticipated.
Even though the title of the
show is Te Live Group Sex
Terapy Show, the show isnt
really about sex, host Daniel
Packard said. However, I believe
strongly that if everyone listens
to what I have to say, one day you
may be confdent enough to fnd
someone you like enough to have
sex with!
Packard then led the audience
through experiments to see what
some were doing wrong in their
relationships, or even what they
could do to become more conf-
dent in their everyday lives.
One thing I really learned
from the show tonight was to
have more respect for yourself
and to be confdent, said Sarah
Willingham, an Olathe fresh-
He also said that you re-
ally need to be yourself, Olathe
freshman Seth McFadden said.
You have to know and love
yourself before you can focus on
anyone else.
To relay this message, Packard
used a wide variety of comedy.
Daniel was hilarious, said
Mike Valentino, SUA special
events coordinator. He really
helped all the people who came
out to the show tonight really
learn something, and its great
that we got him out here.
Despite being able to help
those who come to his shows,
Packard also wants to spread his
message to more people.
For those who werent able
to go the show, one thing I want
people to learn is fairly simple,
Packard said. What keeps people
from love is that theyre afraid.
People, though, have to learn to
step out of their comfort zone is
scary, but all it takes is courage.
When in doubt, dont think, have
courage, and go for it.

TOPEKA, Kan. Te ofce of
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Ko-
bach, who has gone to federal court
to prevent a persistent critic from
getting a list of voters who cast pro-
visional ballots in a close legislative
race, did not try to stop the release of
similar information in another pri-
mary earlier this year, ofcials said
Democratic Rep. Ann Mah of To-
peka, who trails her GOP rival by 44
votes in last weeks election, asked a
state court to force county ofcials to
provide the names of those who cast
as-yet-uncounted provisional votes in
her district, and a state judge ordered
it. Kobach, a Republican, responded
with a federal lawsuit, arguing that
Mah and her GOP challenger should
not be allowed to contact voters who
cast provisional ballots.
Kobach contends that the release
of 131 such voters names to Mah
and her GOP challenger, Ken Cor-
bet, violates federal law. A hearing in
the secretary of states litigation was
set Wednesday afernoon.
But documents provided to Te
Associated Press on Wednesday
show that the losing candidate in a
close Democratic primary in August
for a state House seat in Reno Coun-
ty requested and received far
more information about voters cast-
ing provisional ballots than Mah and
her GOP challenger.
Erich Bishop of Hutchinson re-
ceived the names, addresses and
reasons for provisional ballots in his
primary. Mah, afer her successful
state court fght last week, received
only names. Both Bishop and Mah
received the information by fling
open records requests.
Reno County Deputy Election
Ofcer Jenna Fager told the AP that
she had asked the secretary of states
ofce for guidance but didnt get a
defnitive answer before a deadline in
the states Open Records Act led her
to provide the names to Bishop.
Tey didnt have a policy in place
at the time, Fager said.
Kobachs ofce sent two memos to
county election ofcials last week ad-
vising them against releasing names
or other information about voters
who cast provisional ballots.
It has been the consistent policy
of the secretary of states ofce, going
back years, Kobach said.
Kobach, a former law professor, is
known nationally for helping to draf
laws in Arizona and Alabama crack-
ing down on illegal immigration and
also pushed successfully in Kansas
for a law requiring voters to show
photo identifcation at the polls. Mah
has repeatedly criticized him and the
law, though she voted for one ver-
sion, the fnal one, in 2011.
Mah and Corbet want to contact
voters who cast provisional ballots
and help correct potential prob-
lems so their votes will be added to
the nearly 10,700 already counted
in the 54th District when Douglas
and Shawnee counties certify elec-
tion results Tursday. Mah carried
the Shawnee County portion of the
district and hopes to pick up enough
votes there to erase Corbets lead.
Provisional ballots are cast when
election workers arent sure people
are eligible to vote at particular poll-
ing places, for reasons including the
lack of a proper photo ID, a recent
move or, for some women, a name
change upon getting married. Each
ballot is placed in an envelope and
set aside for further review.
Te 54th District includes parts of
Douglas, Shawnee and Osage coun-
ties, but Osage County certifed its
results Monday, without releasing
the names of provisional voters to the
candidates. Douglas County released
the names of 27 voters to Mah on
Tursday, just hours before Kobachs
ofce issued its frst memo advising
against it and before the court battles
Afer Mah fled her lawsuit in
state district court, Shawnee County
emailed her and Corbet a two-page
list with 104 provisional voters
names, in no particular order.

MARJAH, Afghanistan Patrol-
ling in all-terrain vehicles that whip
up clouds of dust, members of Af-
ghanistans elite Civil Order Police
might be viewed as outsiders here
in southern Helmand province, an
ethnic Pashtun heartland where res-
idents talk wistfully of the Talibans
rule, call NATO troops invaders and
refer to Afghan government ofcials
as thieves.
Col. Khalil Rahman and the 441
police under his command in the
3rd Battalion are almost all from
northern Afghanistan and belong to
minority ethnic groups. Many dont
even speak Pashto, the language of
most southerners. Tat could be
a recipe for confict in this major-
ity Pashtun country that descended
into a bloody civil war over ethnic
lines in the 1990s.
Yet Rahman said he asked for
each of his three deployments to
Helmand and is planning to settle
his bride of two months in the pro-
vincial capital, Lashkar Gah.
Tis is my country, all of it. I
asked to come here, said Rahman,
30, whose clean-shaven face and
tightly cropped hair contrasts with
most local men, who wear unkempt
bushy beards and the traditional
turban. Still, when they met in the
villages, he embraced them in the
traditional hug and Pashtu greeting
of May you not get weary.
As the U.S. and NATO close out
their mission in Afghanistan pre-
paring for the fnal withdrawal of
combat troops by the end of 2014,
the worry looms large that fresh
outbursts of ethnically motivated
fghting would send the country
into a spiral of chaos and violence
that could give al-Qaida the toehold
it needs to re-establish camps to plot
attacks on Western targets and train
wannabe jihadis.
But an Associated Press reporter
and photographer who accompa-
nied the 3rd Battalion for a week
did not observe any hostility among
local residents to the Civil Order
Police, known as ANCOP. Instead,
they channeled much of their anger
toward government ofcials, an in-
ternational community they said re-
neged on promises of development
and the U.S- fnanced Afghan Local
No one helps us, said Abdul
Qayyum, who was up to his elbows
in mud afer stepping away from re-
pairing his sun-baked mud home.
Te situation was good before the
fghting, he said.
Qayyum was referring to the joint
NATO, U.S. and Afghan assault on
Taliban bases in Marjah, a sprawling
region of dozens of small mud vil-
lages with a total population of less
than 50,000. Te idea behind the
February 2010 counterinsurgency
operation the largest in Afghani-
stan since the 2001 U.S.-led inva-
sion was to kick out the Taliban
and make Marjah a model of de-
velopment and good governance, a
shining example of how an area can
prosper if it spurns the Taliban and
embraces the Afghan government.
Al-Qaida offcials linked
to U.S. consulate attack
PARIS Some of the culprits in an
attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi,
Libya, had links to al-Qaidas North Af-
rica arm, a top U.S. military offcial said
Wednesday, adding that it remained
unclear if the terror network led or orga-
nized the deadly assault whose victims
included an American ambassador.
Al-Qaida links had been suspected in
the attack on Sept. 11, but not publicly
detailed, and an investigation is under-
way. U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris
Stevens and three others were killed. The
assault occurred around the same time
that protests erupted in Muslim coun-
tries over an anti-Islam flm made in the
United States.
Gen. Carter Ham, the head of the U.S.
militarys Africa Command, said some
of the attackers had ties to Al-Qaida in
the Islamic Maghreb, which was built on
the remains of a former Algerian militant
Clearly some of these individuals
have some linkages to AQIM, Ham told
reporters in Paris. Thats not to say that
this was an AQIM-planned or organized
or led activity. He did not elaborate.
AQIM and its allies control a vast
swath of neighboring Mali. The United
States and France are among the West-
ern powers that are worried about the
Sahel region of northeastern Mali could
become a terrorist haven, and are push-
ing for international action in the re-

quickly hes begun to reach it.
I dont think a lot people were
real high on him at the beginning
of the season, Opurum said. Since
hes come down to scout team, hes
helped us a lot. Hes a work-hard
guy and a very physical guy, that
alone will put him in a position to
get reps.
Even losing a big body like Mike
Ragone at tight end will be a loss,
and while Jimmay Mundine has
started to emerge, he isnt the only
one: Jordan Shelley-Smith has been
slowly rising as well.
It also helps the maturation
process having an experienced
24-year-old Ragone helping out a
19-year-old freshman, even if it can
be intimidating at times.
He was so nervous the frst
day, Ragone said of Shelley-Smith.
I was lined up in my three-point
stance, and he was lined up in his,
and he tried to undercut me, but he
punched me right in the mouth. He
was so shaken up.
Apparently not too shaken up,
though. Shelley-Smith ended up
punching Ragone again a few plays
later. Chalk it up to the learning
Luhrsen, Mundine, Shelley-
Smith theyre all coming, and
theyll be thrown into an experi-
enced mix. A mix of guys like Gavin
Howard, Aslam Sterling and Ran-
dall Dent. Guys who have had the
fortune of playing with the likes of
Duane Zlatnik, Trevor Marrongelli
and Tanner Hawkinson.
While those three seniors wont
be around to see Kansas success,
they will be a big reason for it if the
wins start piling up. Teyve already
made sure of that.
Weve been there to show the
younger guys this is how youve got
to work each day, Hawkinson said.
Well talk to some of the guys who
are going to be seniors next year,
too, and tell them, Youve got to
keep this going. I think theyre go-
ing to be in good hands for years
to come.

Republicans inability to com-
municate with young people is
one reason they lost last weeks
election, former Speaker of the
House Newt Gingrich told his
audience of more than 400 at
the Dole Institute of Politics
Wednesday evening. In an inter-
view with institute director Bill
Lacy, Gingrich, a former presiden-
tial hopeful, discussed the elec-
tion, the future of the Republican
party and his new novel, Victory
at Yorktown.
People under 30 get more
news from Colbert and from
the The Daily Show than they
do from any cable network,
Gingrich said. To not compete
in that market is to put your-
self at a stunning disadvantage.
Appearing on the Colbert Report
the night before, Gingrich noted
how Republicans candidates,
including Mitt Romney, have
largely been absent from ven-
ues geared toward younger audi-
Gingrich also said a left-leaning
higher education environment
swayed the youth vote toward
the left. But if economic condi-
tions do not improve, Gingrich
predicts younger people may be
more persuaded to conservative
Gingrich spoke on his book
about the Revolutionary War
alongside his collaborator, author
William Forstchen, and laid out
the dramatized end to the war
while drawing allusions to the
current political environment
and American Exceptionalism.
Kristin Nance, a senior from
Topeka and study group coor-
dinator for the institute, said
despite Gingrichs conservative
politics, his historical knowledge
gives him bipartisan appeal.
Gingrich is a fantastic analyst,
and he is typically the smartest
man in the room, Nance said.
He can be a polarizing figure,
but he brings a lot of insight to
the table.
James Leiker, a junior from
Haven, supported Gingrich dur-
ing the Republican primaries.
Hoping to leave with an auto-
graphed copy of Gingrichs book,
Leiker enjoyed hearing Gingrichs
political opinions.
Until the minority and
youth vote increase its support
for Republicans, its going to be
impossible for them to get a pres-
ident elected, Leiker said.
And while Christina Ostmeyer,
a freshman from Colby, consid-
ers herself politically liberal, she
agreed with Gingrichs stance
opposing super-PACs and exces-
sive campaign spending.
I was a little wary of what
he would have to say, but I was
pleasantly surprised that I agreed
with most of what he had to
say, Ostmeyer said. However,
she noticed most topics remained
neutral, which kept Gingrich
from having to take a political
stance. Instead he relied on his
dry humor to provide analysis.
He didnt let policy issues get
in the way, Ostmeyer said.

Well, other than the warning

immune system. All signs point
to the fu.
Te movie Contagion really
did a number on me. It got me
thinking about all the diferent
places where germs lurk and to
also buy a full-body hazardous
material suit or at the very least,
a face mask.
According to the Simmons
College Center for Hygiene and
Health, dorm room refrigerators
contain twice as much bacteria
than a dorm room toilet handle.
Desktops can contain almost 400
times the amount of bacteria than
the average toilet. You might be
thinking, Should I just stay in the
bathroom because thats my best
option if I want to avoid germs?
No; just wash your hands.
Te Centers for Disease Con-
trol says the most simple, most
efective way to ward of diseases
and germs leading to the fu is to
wash your hands. I always wash
my hands but not long enough.
Your hand washing should last
as long as it takes you to say the
alphabet in your head, or say it
out loud whatever works. Afer
you dry your hands, use the same
paper towel to open the door and
leave feeling clean. Weve all seen
the guy that turns on the faucet or
opens the door with a paper tow-
el. Hes on to something. What
about the guy that leaves the bath-
room without washing his hands?
Well, hes just doomed.
And dont forget about getting
your fu shot. I ask my friends
and they typically say the same
thing. Im not getting my fu
shot because I dont want to get
sick. Like an episode of Myth-
Busters, Im here to say that is a
myth. Yes, the fu shot contains
actual strains of the viruses but its
killed bacteria. Te risk of getting
the fu from an actual fu shot is
minimal. Im not a doctor, though
I might look like one if you see me
on campus with my facemask try-
ing to stay healthy, but ask your
doctor for side efects.
Lastly, this goes to all student
body: If you are sick and have a
fever, do us all a favor and stay
home. I got the fu pretty early
this year and Im confdent I
know the class I was sitting in
when I, along with other class-
mates, were hit with cough afer
cough of spewing mucus from a
sick person. Even if your fever is
gone, its advised to stay home 24
hours afer your fever subsides.
People do not just miracu-
lously get the fu. Its through
human contact and it could be
the person youre standing or sit-
ting next to right now. Overall,
your best defense is to wash your
hands and avoid touching your
face throughout the day. While
the movie Contagion lef us
with the horrifc statistic that the
average person touches their face
between 2,000 to 3,000 times a
day, it hasnt been proven. Still,
Id be conscious of anything that
could get you sick. If you see me
on campus with a facemask, you
know why.

ets talk for a minute about
something we all know and
love, which seems to be
happening more and more as the
end of the semester approaches:
Te Dreaded Group Project
Jokes on you, professors! I am
onto your sick game and see it
for what it is: less work for you to
grade and a chance to see who self-
destructs under the pressure of in-
teracting with other humans. Its all
a big test, and I intend to pass with
fying colors by recognizing this.
Youre not quantifying data
youve compiled through an online
survey youre fguring out how
to get the stoner in your group
to respond to your emails. And
youre not creating a presentation
about the Civil War youre ac-
tually learning how reign in that
overzealous history buf that wants
to do some sort of battle reenact-
Here are some of the common
ofenders I mean, participants
in the group project scenario:
ThE MoochEr
Tis person quickly identifes
you as someone who wants to pass
this class, and has therefore deter-
mined you will do their work for
them to avoid a huge hole in the
project. Te Moocher generally
wears loose clothing like beanies
and sweatpants, and despite
having no obvious commitments
cant seem to make it to group
meetings more than twenty min-
utes late (if at all). Ways to cope
with this person include doing
their work for them or becoming
a huge harpy until they do their
part. Mostly just pray to god this is
one of those projects where every-
one shares what they did at the end
of the project and gets individual
Tis person takes charge of the
group almost immediately. He
or she quickly splits up the entire
project, starts making lists and in-
forms you that they really need an
A on this project. Common state-
ments by the perfectionist include,
Heres what I think we should
do, But Professor So-And-So
said and Did you guys get my
email? Having this person in your
group can be great; they always
do a great job on their parts of the
project, and may even re-do your
part if its not exactly up-to-snuf.
On the downside, youll have to
endure constant emails, Facebook
messages and even calls to your
cell (gasp!). Te best way to pro-
ceed is simply to let them do their
thing and try not to get lost in the
ThE oddball
You know that one person in the
class that no one really gets? Tis
person is known for sitting in the
back of the classroom and make
odd comments at inopportune mo-
ments. For instance, when asked to
tell an interesting fact about him or
herself, this is the person who says,
I have a condition that causes un-
controllable burping, so dont be
alarmed if I belch loudly during
class (true story). Okay, so maybe
that was too specifc, but you get
the idea. Its not that this person
wont do a good job on the project;
its just that working with them will
require you to navigate through
the weirdness just as much as the
actual assignment. Te thing to do
in this situation is just to acknowl-
edge the creepiness of this strange
person and pretend its not there.
Afer awhile, you wont even notice
when Te Oddball starts chewing
on her hair or drinking out of a tin
Te list goes on and on. If you
dont ft any of these categories,
congratulations! It means youre
(possibly) normal, but also that
group projects are going to be hor-
rifying for you until you graduate.
Te best news of all is that life af-
ter college is essentially just one
big group project. So, in theory,
working with some crazies dur-
ing college can only help you with

Mayfeld is a junior studying journal-
ism, public policy and leadership from

very politician in our
history likes to talk about
the American dream. Its
supposed to be attained through
a lifetime of hard work and per-
severance. Well then why do
hard working Americans strug-
gle every day and yet undeserv-
ing reality stars are rewarded
by big money studios. Imagine
being a staf member on a real-
ity set where the reality star
(I use that term loosely) makes
much more than you for doing
so much less. Tats how we as
Americans should feel. If you
dont believe this issue needs fo-
cus then please, let me explain
why it is.
To these studios I must ask,
dont you have a lot of respect
and admiration towards those
who defend our nation? Does
it come to the soldiers in the
form of homelessness? Whether
the number of homeless veter-
ans changes, the one constant
thing is there are still homeless
veterans and yet its OK because
at least theres progress? Have
you ever thought about your
own shows from a diferent per-
spective? Te fact that young
adults from across the country
are chosen to live in lavish mil-
lion dollar houses and the only
criterion that must be met to be
a cast member includes physical
attractiveness, ability to cause
drama, and a fascination for al-
cohol, makes it seem as though
these young adults are more
deserving than our homeless
veterans. Why isnt that money
being used for the beneft of our
soldiers rather than these wan-
nabe actors?
As a student, you would con-
sider yourself well educated.
Tis country has always taken
great pride in educating young
adults for the future. Count-
less years of sacrifcing, study-
ing and hard work bring aver-
age citizens to the point in life
where they can become profes-
sionals and earn a decent salary.
Tose who cannot aford an
education on their own must
attain scholarships or take out
student loans. According to the
Associated Press, 53.6 percent,
of bachelors degree-holders un-
der the age of 25 last year were
jobless or underemployed. Tis
means not only do college grad-
uates have massive amounts
of debt to repay but that they
are graduating with one of two
problems. Tese problems are
that we as students either end
up with no job or a job where
we are not paid enough. How
are we content with the fact that
shows like Jersey Shore, with
casts that do nothing more than
fght, drink and cause drama
are paid hundreds of thousands
of dollars? Helping reality stars
such as these by continuously
supporting them is apparently
much more important than our
future fnancial success.
Tink of the average person
who makes up most of this
country. Tere is the single
mother who has to do it all on
her own and/or the young adult
who never got into college and
has to work minimum wage
just to survive. Why arent they
given the same opportunity
to succeed fnancially? How
about these people, the average
American that are constantly
promised by our presidents will
be helped? Instead who is really
being helped? According to the
Hufngton Post, Honey Boo
Boo and family have received
a raise, now earning $15,000
to $20,000 an episode. A fam-
ily that exemplifes everything
that a family shouldnt be is
paid more in one episode than
some make in a year. Accord-
ing to, on the
show Teen Mom, young preg-
nant and new mothers are paid
$60,000 per episode for doing
nothing more than allowing
their lives to be flmed. Young
single mothers across the coun-
try face the reality everyday of a
life of struggles. What about the
real hard-working responsible
families struggling to survive or
the single teen moms across the
As normal people deal with
the life our government afords
us, there are television compa-
nies who hand over hundreds
of thousands of dollars to peo-
ple simply because of ratings.
Tis country needs an attitude
adjustment and their priorities
set right. Te wrong people are
being rewarded. If anyone in
this country cared about those
I spoke of at all, they would
somehow work on eliminating
these billion-dollar reality show
industries to help out those in
the real real world.

Asher Roth is headlining the 2012
Fall Clashic tour, which is making a
stop in Lawrence on Nov. 15 at the
In 2009 Roth jumped onto the
scene with his single I Love College,
which is his most popular song. In
12 weeks it had more than 1 million
downloads and peaked at No. 12 on
Billboards Hot 100. Since the success
of I Love College, things havent
been quite as swell for the Pennsylva-
nia emcee. His debut album Asleep
in the Bread Aisle sold a disappoint-
ing 65,000 copies in the frst week,
and Roth stirred controversy in April
2009 with a tweet that caused allega-
tions of racism.
I Love College was a double-
edged sword for Roth. While it was
an instant mainstream success, most
hardcore hip-hop fans saw him as a
gimmick and didnt take his music se-
riously. Since then Roth has been try-
ing to establish himself as a credible
rapper. He released a slew of free mix-
tapes and found a new label home at
Def Jam, where hes prepping his next
album, Is Tis Too Orange? With
his new single Wrestling is Fake,
Roth is looking to get back on track.
Roth is bringing a few friends with
him to Lawrence, including Chuck
Inglish, one half of the rap duo Te
Cool Kids. Inglish has been releasing
free instrumental-only mixtapes the
past couple of years and is preparing
to release his solo rap efort, Con-
vertibles, later this year.
Chicago Indie band Kids Tese
Days will also be performing at the
venue. Te members recently released
their studio album debut, Traphouse
Rock, this past September. Te band
is a fresh breath for music as it com-
bines several genres in its music such
as classic rock, hip-hop and jazz.
Fans across campus are getting ex-
cited for Roths performance.
I like his lyrics, Joshua Florez, a
freshman from Wichita, said. I feel
like I can really relate to them, and
he raps about things other rappers
wouldnt. I cant wait to see him per-
form, Chuck Inglish, too. Ive been
waiting on this for a while now.
Tickets are still available for $13
in advance or $15 at the door. Doors
open at 7 p.m., and the show starts at

Te Brady Bunch and Te
Partridge Family set a high stan-
dard for familial musical talent.
In shows like these, everyone
can sing, play an instrument and
get along with one another long
enough to record an album. In
reality though, most families are
like mine: a star musical child and
his tone-deaf, butterfngered sib-
lings. Unfortunately, most of my
familys musical talent went to my
brother, leaving me with a dwin-
dling karaoke career and a drink-
ing and dancing problem. So
aside from a few songs on Rock
Band, Im pretty much useless
musically. Fortunately for anyone
who has had to sufer through my
rendition of Queens Bohemian
Rhapsody, Lawrence ofers plen-
ty of chances to see real musical
talent. Tis weekend especially,
Lawrence has brought in a few
acts that are sure to please.
Tonight at 7 p.m., Te Granada
has rapper Asher Roth playing for
the low price of $15. For many
my age, Roths I Love College
convinced us that we were about
to enter a universe where time
isnt wasted when youre getting
wasted. Opinions would vary
on how honest this song was, but
even incoming freshmen are sure
to have a good time at Roths con-
cert tonight.
If a rapper with an exaggerated
education doesnt do it for you,
KJHK is hosting a concert to-
night featuring State Radio at Te
Bottleneck. While many know of
Roths College antics, State Ra-
dio may be a bit of my age groups
radar. You may have heard their
2010 single Knights of Bostonia,
which had me dancing like a New
Englander any time I heard it. Te
Boston trio serves a healthy dose
of reggae, ska and punk infu-
ence as well as politically driven
lyrics. Dont run for fear of their
messages, though, because State
Radio is a lot of fun. Teir more
upbeat songs will keep you jump-
ing up and down all night long,
even if you dont care what theyre
singing about.
However, Tursday nights dont
work for everyone, and aside from
Lawrences usual rocking local
musicians, Saturday night at Te
Granada, Te Randy Rogers Band
is playing. Now, I know country
music tends to polarize people,
but as a Texas native, I dont mind
a red dirt band from time to time.
Hailing from the Lone Star State
and sporting a fddle, Randy Rog-
ers and his team have had their
fair share of successes. Like many
boot scooters, these guys ofer
plenty of tearjerkers, so Id sug-
gest bringing a special somebody

Whether youre into rock, rap
or country, Lawrence brings in
a lot of big-name bands worth
checking out, especially if youre
working with a tight budget. So
even if youre not digging the
lineups this weekend, keep look-
ing, because you never know
when your favorite band will stop
by. If nothing else, we can all rock
out on plastic guitars and rubber
drum sets while singing of-key at
the TV.

went into this pub, and the patrons

In addition to releasing Rab-
bit Inn Rebellion in late October,
Stokes other band, Dispatch, re-
leased an album in August. When
asked what it was like to have two
albums drop within two months of
each other, Stokes said, Its con-
fusing. You know, it was a lot of
work getting them both out in the
last year. Tings get a little crazy,
but its always really fun to get new
songs and then tour and see how
they carry over live. In the studio
youre under the microscope. Its
fun to just let them rip live.
Tere are notable diferences
between the two albums and be-
tween the two bands. Stokes de-
scribed State Radio to be a little
bit heavier, with more rifs and
rock. It reaches more of a mania,
kind of more mayhem. Just full-on
loud and distorted and political.
Te infuence behind the raw rock
of the album comes from Black
Sabbath, Led Zeppelin and Neil
Underneath the roots of rock,
the message of hope is strong. State
Radio is on a social mission one
that can be heard loud and clear in

movie review
Steven Spielbergs Lincoln is a
lovingly crafted, deliberately super-
ficial history lesson bolstered by
one of the finest performances of
this or any other year. Simply put,
Daniel Day-Lewis slips into the
skin of Abraham Lincoln in a way
that falls just shy of resurrection.
What emerges isnt a waxwork imi-
tation or some idealized martyr
but a fully formed human being,
given new weight and vital dimen-
sion by the most gifted actor of his
The film, originally envisioned
by screenwriter Tony Kushner
(Angels In America) as a life-
spanning biopic, wisely narrows
its focus to the last four months of
Lincolns life, when the President
risked prolonging the Civil War
by pressuring Congress to ratify
the 13th Amendment and end the
scourge of slavery.
We watch as Lincoln and his
cabinet, including his loyal sec-
retary of state, William Seward
(David Strathairn), force the obsti-
nate wheels of government to turn
in their favor, employing tactics like
corruption, ingratiation and even
bold-faced deception to ensure the
amendments passage. Politics has
always been an underhanded busi-
ness, and one cant help but admire
Lincolns tenacity in navigating a
system where every vote is for sale
and party loyalty is shed like snake-
The genius of a Day-Lewis per-
formance is that it never quite feels
like one. He finds the Emancipators
humanity without overemphasiz-
ing his flaws. Theres a bone-deep
weariness to his Lincoln, stooped
and withered by four long years
of war and the recent death of his
son William. This solemnity is off-
set by moments of rascally humor,
emphasized by his gentle, reedy
voice and predilection for storytell-
ing as a way to ease tensions among
his staff.
Spielberg, whos reportedly tired
of directing big action scenes,
made the conscious decision to
make Lincoln less about the Civil
War and more about the legisla-
tive process, meaning that long
stretches of the film are largely
dialogue-driven. This approach
works fine as long as Day-Lewis is
on screen, but the movie tends to
suffer during the Congress scenes,
where the pro-slavery Democrats
are reduced to mustache-twirling
revisionist caricatures. Tommy Lee
Jones does his best to keep things
lively as the ornery abolition-
ist Thaddeus Stevens, head of the
Houses Radical Republicans, while
James Spader and John Hawkes
provide comic relief as a loutish
pair of political fixers.
Although Lincoln features
appearances from noted character
actors like Jackie Earle Haley and
Hal Holbrook, only a few of them
stick around long enough to make
an impression. The best support-
ing work in the movie comes from
within Lincolns family, especially
Sally Field as the magnificently dis-
turbed Mary Todd. Her scenes with
Day-Lewis contain a grand melan-
choly that would require another
movie to fully explain.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt makes
the most of his brief screentime
as Robert, the oldest of Lincolns
children, who desperately wants to
enlist with Ulysses S. Grant (Jared
Harris) before the war ends, and
young Gulliver McGraths final
scene as little Tad Lincoln will stay
with you long after the lights come
up. The scene in question takes
place at a theater, but probably not
the one youre thinking of. Here
Spielberg reverts back to his roots,
once again using a childs-eye view
to describe the unimaginable.
Lincoln was clearly a labor of
love for Spielberg, who spent 12
years researching the man and sev-
eral more convincing the notori-
ously picky Day-Lewis to play him.
The end result is a powerful post-
election reminder that although
our political system remains a
source of frustration and cynicism,
it still has the potential to be a last-
ing force for good, but only if we
take responsibility for it. As Lincoln
himself said, If destruction be our
lot, we must ourselves be its author
and finisher. As a nation of free-
men, we must live through all time,
or die by suicide.

Director Sam Mendes celebrates
the Bond franchises 50th anniver-
sary by throwing the worlds great-
est secret agent off a train, blowing
up his beloved Aston Martin and
threatening all of MI6 with the
specter of obsolescence.
The result is 007s most suc-
cessful outing since Goldfinger,
a superior espionage epic that
approaches the classic Bond for-
mula with equal parts reverence
and subversive ingenuity. Just as
Christopher Nolan retooled the
Batman mythos by deepening its
thematic complexity and enlisting
the help of a first-rate cast, Skyfall
functions as both a victory lap for
the venerated series and an incisive
commentary on terror in the digi-
tal age a reminder that yester-
days cloak-and-dagger has become
todays point-and-click.
In a spectacular opening scene
that will banish any lingering mem-
ories of Quantum of Solace and
its mania for hyper-editing, Bond
and a rival assassin (Ola Rapace)
engage in a bare-knuckled brawl
on the roof of a speeding locomo-
tive. Using his subsequent injuries
as an excuse to go off the grid,
Bond returns only after MI6 head-
quarters is attacked by Silva (Javier
Bardem), a former 00-agent whose
acts of cyber-terrorism are part of
a long-gestating vendetta against
M (Judi Dench), Bonds imperious
boss and grudging mother figure.
After two movies and a televised
rendezvous with Queen Elizabeth
II at the Olympic opening cer-
emony, Craig finally seems at home
in the role, blending Bonds blunt-
force physicality with a sense of
humor dryer than the martinis he
now instinctively swigs. He even
attempts a Connery-esque repar-
tee with fellow agent Eve, played
with cleverness and warmth by the
lovely Naomie Harris, and the new
Q (Ben Whishaw), recast as an
impish tech whiz who boasts he
can do more damage on his laptop
before breakfast than Bond can do
in a years worth of fieldwork. The
other requisite Bond girl is Silvas
mistress Svrine, played with
smoldering guile by newcomer
Brnice Marlohe.
But a film like Skyfall is only
as good as its lead villain, and
Bardems Silva is a freakish marvel.
With a cold, expressionless face
and a hairstyle borrowed from a
demonic Wooly Willy toy, Silva is
dead behind the eyes, a living dis-
guise kit meant to mask something
broken and cruel. His pathological
obsession with M is weirdly endear-
ing in its Oedipal ambiguity, and a
scene where he appears to flirt with
Bond has the same black-mirror
intensity as the interrogation room
scene in The Dark Knight. After
watching him embody monolithic
evil in No Country for Old Men,
its a joy to see Bardem cut loose as
a more flamboyant heavy.
Yet the performance of the
movie ends up belonging to Judi
Dench, whose 17-year tenure as M
has made the veteran actress one of
the fixed points in a changing fran-
chise. Here shes allowed to leave
her desk and take center stage,
squaring off against an oversight
committee led by Gareth Mallory
(Ralph Fiennes) amid charges of
intelligence leaks and fears that her
boots-on-the-ground methods are
becoming irrelevant. Its fascinat-
ing to watch her gradually take
responsibility for Silva, the mon-
ster she created through a ruthless
judgment call.
Like all Bond movies, Skyfall
offers no shortage of exotic locales,
as 007 tracks Silva from the roof-
tops of Istanbuls Grand Bazaar
to the silhouette skyscrapers of
neon-drenched Shanghai. Roger
Deakins, the famed English cin-
ematographer best known for
his collaborations with the Coen
Brothers, frames every sequence
with the precision and elegance
of a painter, making this the most
visually arresting installment in a
series known for exuding effort-
less cool.
Mendes and Deakins save their
best efforts for the third-act center-
piece: the nightfall siege of a manor
house in the Scottish highlands, a
masterful sequence that elevates
Skyfall into the realm of grand
tragedy. Its outcome also points to
whats become a recurring theme
in the newer 007 movies: Why does
the James Bond character endure?
What place does he have in the 21st
century? I believe the answer can
be found in the Tennyson poem
Ulysses, which M quotes in part
towards the end of the film: Old
age hath yet his honour and his toil,
death closes all, but something ere
the end, some work of noble note,
may yet be done.
Agent Eve puts it even more suc-
cinctly. Old dog new tricks.

The University Theatre
Department will continue showing
off its musical talent in its produc-
tion of Into the Woods.
The show, written by Broadway
veteran Stephen Sondheim, tells
the story of a baker and his wife
who are cursed to be childless. The
pair must complete tasks involv-
ing fairy tale characters from sto-
ries such as Cinderella, Rapunzel,
Jack and the Beanstalk and Little
Red Riding Hood, who also have
challenges to face throughout the
Its one of Sondheims best
scores, director John Stanuinas
said. I also love fairy tales and
think theyre important to how we
think as humans and about our
own lives.
The show opened on Nov. 9 and
was well-received by the audience.
I thought it was excellent, said
Audrey Shamet, a senior from
Shawnee. It was the first time Id
ever seen the show.
Madeline Cummings, a
Benedictine College student from
Shawnee, said the show was won-
derful, and the cast and the story
were great.
Stanuinas said the decision to do
the show was made around March.
There were so many factors to
consider the actors, crew and
the musicians from the School of
Music, he said. This is an impor-
tant experience for all of them
because theyll be doing this their
whole careers.
Lawrence freshman Lily
Lancaster, who portrays Snow
White in the show, added her rea-
sons for wanting to be in the pro-
Being in shows is just part of
my life, she said. There was no
real question of whether or not I
was going to audition.
For some cast members, like
Sofia Belhouari, a freshman from
Overland Park who portrays
Cinderella in the show, being a part
of the production also exposed her
to other aspects of the theater busi-
Its opened my eyes so much to
whats going on underneath every-
thing, Belhouari said. Its been
great to be placed in a college envi-
ronment and learning from every-
one and allowing myself to apply
some of the same stuff. Its also
been a great opportunity to get my
feet wet in a college environment.
Performances are scheduled for
7:30 p.m. Nov. 15-17 with a final
matinee performance on Nov. 18,
all in Murphy Halls Crafton-Preyer
If people doubt whether to
come, they should make the time
to come, Belhouari said. Theyll
walk out and have a sense of per-
spective on how to live and share
your life with others.

Rihanna first made the Billboard
Hot 100 in 2005 as a gimmicky,
pseudo-Caribbean singer with the
single Pon de Replay. She has
since transformed into a pop music
powerhouse, combining Beyonc-
level talent with tattooed-rebel
appeal, and her seventh studio
project Unapologetic promises to
continue the trend. The album fea-
tures production work from David
Guetta and Swedish House Mafia,
along with Rihannas first collabo-
ration with Eminem since 2010s
Love the Way You Lie.

To say expectations are high for
the upcoming sophomore album
from Pittsburgh king Wiz Khalifa
would be a gross understatement.
Although 2011s Rolling Papers
sold well, many critics and fans
alike condemned the emcees first
studio recording as being too pop
and too drastic a departure from
his earlier, mixtape-happy brand of
hardcore rap. It should be interest-
ing to see what direction he takes
with O.N.I.F.C., as the only pre-
released single, Remember You,
features Khalifas classic, lazy-in-a-
good-way flow.

Green Day now punk rock

ing out with Tr! which will be
the final album in a 2012 trilogy
that has also included Uno! and
Dos!. If the first two albums in
the series are any indication, Tr!
will likely be a mixture of the dis-
torted guitar punch that made
the band famous and some more
adventurous tunes. On Dos!,
for example, the tracks Nightlife
and Amy are stripped-down and
uncharacteristically playful Green
Day songs.

Te stakes are high, the ques-
tions are challenging, and the re-
ward? Eternal glory and riches.
OK, maybe thats a bit exag-
gerated. But for the team of Tyler
Habrock, Drew Richter, Patrick
Carter and Nate Sydney, a little ex-
tra spending money and the pride
of winning a round of trivia sounds
like a pretty sweet deal.
Te four have been attending
trivia night on Tursdays at 23rd
Street Brewery, 3412 Clinton Park-
way, on and of for the past year.
According to Habrock, a graduate
student from Overland Park, there
are many factors that make trivia
nights appealing.
Teres good beer specials, you
can watch the game, and multitask
with the trivia, he said.
Although theyve come close,
they have yet to be completely suc-
cessful. Habrock said they ofen
end up on the fringe of placing.
He said sixth place is typical for
them, which is what the team end-
ed up with on Tursday.
We just want to win, said Syd-
ney, a ffh-year senior from Green
Bay, Wis. We havent won yet.
Weve come really close.
Topics for trivia can cover a wide
range, from politics to sports to
pop culture, both present and past.
Habrock and Sydney attribute their
losing record to an age disadvan-
Te most obscure question that
I can remember was about a 70s
soap opera, Habrock said. Need-
less to say we got that one wrong.
All of the TV questions that deal
with shows in the 70s we are sure
to miss.
Te hardest question topic is
probably old television shows, be-
cause nobody in our group was
around to watch them, Sydney
Competition between teams
can be stif at trivia nights, but for
most its all in good fun. Recently,
however, the level of competition
has been a bit higher. Te Brew-
ery is part of the Heartland Trivia
League, a group of restaurants and
bars from around Kansas that team
up for a winter trivia competition
with $4,000 in cash and prizes at
stake for the winners.
Quintons Bar & Deli, Biggs BBQ,
Dempseys Burger Pub and Wayne
& Larrys are among the Leagues
Lawrence locations. Qualifying
started Nov. 1 and ends Jan. 31.
Te top fve teams from each loca-
tion get to advance to the semifnal
Applebees trivia night is also
among the favorites in the Law-
rence trivia scene. Ryan Dixon, the
general manager of the Applebees
at 3900 W. Sixth St., started trivia
nights in March and said he usu-
ally sees about 40 college students
come to compete on a typical
Friday night.
Its a laid-back, good location
with good drink specials and good
food specials, Dixon said.
In addition to half-price appe-
tizers and two-for-one happy hour
specials, trivia night contenders
have the chance to win up to $30 in
Applebees gif cards.
We were trying to build our
late-night business and do some-
thing fun, something we could at-
tract customers with, he said.

Garlington further described his

has good tips on how to pull of the
bright colors that were ever-present
in the 90s.

Senior Night Gameday
the Jayhawks manage to push past the redhawks in the second game of the year
s I sat down to write
a column on why the
University student body
should attend the Kansas football
Senior Night game against Iowa
State this Saturday, I had a consid-
erably tough time coming up with
a way to convince students that it
is going to be worth it.
Saturday night is the prime
time to spend all of your parents
hard-earned cash at the bars while
also trying to pick up a member of
whatever gender you totally dig.
So why would anyone waste
their time at a football game?
For the seniors who have just
spent four years dealing with one
of the darkest times in Kansas
football history thats why.
Saturday night is Senior Night
for the Jayhawks, and the play-
ers who are being celebrated have
endured one of the toughest, most
bleak and most embarrassing
stretches of power conference col-
legiate football in recent memory
(affectionately known as the end
of Mark Manginos reign and The
Turner Gill Era). Those unsung
heroes who make up the senior
class had to deal with two coaching
changes, long seasons, and worst
of all disrespect from the student
Im just as guilty as most of the
student body. I havent sat through
a full football game at Memorial
Stadium since I was a freshman
and the Jayhawks were undefeated
and touting a top-25 ranking. But
Im changing that this weekend,
and its all because of Charlie Weis
and the seniors who have worked
their tails off.
I get it, football games are long,
and this team isnt very good. A lot
of students are embarrassed by the
performance of this football team
for the past three seasons.
But things are changing. Charlie
Weis first season doesnt look good
at first look, but the truth is that
this football team has made a lot
of progress. Defensive coordinator
Dave Campo inherited the worst
defense in the country, and yet he
has somehow found a way to make
these Jayhawks somewhat competi-
tive. And last week, running backs
James Sims and Tony Pierson ran
all over Texas Tech, one of the best
defenses in the Big 12.
Obviously, some things havent
changed. The Jayhawks still dont
have a quarterback who they can
trust, but the team is making do
with the talent it has.
Im a senior, and this is my last
opportunity to see the Jayhawks
play a football game at home as a
find-a-job-soon? student. I like
to think of it as my Senior Night,
too. I havent had to deal with
the struggles this team has dealt
with, but I know the players would
appreciate my support.
When I was growing up, my
grandfather, who played for
Kansas, told me once a Jayhawk,
always a Jayhawk.
What kind of Jayhawk would I
be if I dont support the Jayhawks
who are struggling?
See you Saturday.

Edited by Ryan McCarthy
One look at the stat sheet
wouldnt do any justice to the
Jayhawks performance around the
net Wednesday against Oklahoma.
Although Oklahoma outblocked
Kansas 10-5, the Jayhawks front line
routinely got touches on the Sooners
attack, slowing the ball down by the
time it reached Kansas back row.
Although touches are not an official
stat, they proved just as important
as blocking in the Jayhawks 3-0 vic-
Not only does it help to get a
good touch, but it helps when they
funnel the ball to our diggers, coach
Ray Bechard said. I thought we
were organized with our front row. I
thought when they did have a clean
swing, at least we angled the ball to
where our defense was set up.
Because Kansas front line got its
hands on so many Sooner attacks,
the Jayhawks back line had a much
easier time making first contact and
getting the ball in-system to junior
setter Erin McNorton. She recorded
49 assists, and four Jayhawks benefit-
ted from her ball distribution by get-
ting double-digit kills. In its five-set
loss to Texas last Saturday, only two
Jayhawks had double digit kills.
Erin does a great job distributing
the ball, and a lot of the time I dont
even know where its going, junior
middle blocker Caroline Jarmoc
said. Erin was sending me behind
on the wides because they were hav-
ing a hard time closing, and I was
just working the seams.
Conversely, because Kansas was
running such a smooth offense,
Oklahoma had trouble receiving
the ball and getting into its system.
The Sooners two main setters com-
bined for only 25 assists, because
their attackers had a hard time get-
ting powerful attacks cleanly past the
Jayhawks block.
Junior libero Brianne Riley led
Kansas with 19 digs, and Kansas
outdug Oklahoma 58-44. She said
the front row made her job easier by
slowing down the Sooners attack,
which in turn helped Kansas estab-
lish a balanced attack and convert
opportunities for transition kills.
Obviously when our block gets a
touch and its straight up in the air, to
me its a lot easier to dig, Riley said.
I always tell Jarmoc, You block, and
Ill watch. They did a pretty good
job of that.
Although Kansas swept Oklahoma
for the first time since 2005, Kansas
had to win two extended sets to do
so. The Sooners led 23-19 in the
second set before Kansas roared back
with five straight points.
The teams traded points, with
Kansas and Oklahoma each hav-
ing two set points. On Kansas third
set point, sophomore outside hitter
Chelsea Albers converted a kill, giv-
ing the Jayhawks a 29-27 set victory.
You cant look at the big picture
like, Oh my gosh, were down four,
Jarmoc said. You just go point-by-
point, and then the momentum
slowly comes back your way. It was
just being really disciplined, because
in volleyball its a game of errors.
The two teams reversed roles in
the third set, but Kansas emerged
on top once again. After Oklahoma
scored three straight points to tie
the set at 19, Kansas responded with
a 4-0 run and eventually had triple
match point with a 24-21 lead.
But Oklahoma tied the set with
two kills and a block. Just like the
second set, Kansas closed the match
by relying on its attackers to come
through, and they did. A kill from
Albers put Kansas on the brink of
victory, and Jarmoc finished the
match with her 16th kill. In keep-
ing with the matchs theme, Kansas
won the set after its attackers slowed
down Oklahoma attacks during long
rallies late in the set by getting touch-
es on the ball before it reached the
Jayhawks back line.
Close games like this at this time
of year, when you have success, I
think its a good sign, Bechard said.
There was some extended rallies
that they fought hard and we fought
hard. Thats one of the signatures of
their team is how hard they play and
how they keep the ball off the floor.
The win moved Kansas to 22-6
overall and 10-4 in Big 12 play, with
its next match Saturday at 1 p.m.
against TCU in Fort Worth, Texas.

Junior middle blocker Caroline Jarmoc attempts to hit the ball over the Oklahoma
blockers on Wednesday. the Jayhawks won the match 3-0 to improve the overall
record to 22-6.
The No. 25 ranked Kansas
Jayhawks got all they could handle
from Southeast Missouri State last
night inside Allen Fieldhouse.
The tandem of senior forwards
Carolyn Davis and Tania Jackson
fueled the Jayhawks to a 68-58 vic-
tory over the Redhawks. The two
combined for 44 points with Davis
having a game-high 27 points.
Tania was the rock star tonight.
She was good and good when we
werent. Shes probably the reason we
get out of here tonight alive, Kansas
coach Bonnie Henrickson said after
the game.
Jacksons big energetic moment
came when the game was tied at
44 with 13:03 left to play. Jackson
hit back to back shots, grabed some
rebounds and the Jayhawks didnt
have to look back.
We needed some kind of energy.
I wasnt looking to score, I was just
trying to bring any type of emotions
I could. So for Angel [Goodrich] to
find me and for me to hit those open
Js, really helped the energy level,
Jackson said.
As for Davis 27 points, 12-of-16
on the night, Henrickson said Davis
has to score in order for us to win.
Davis was aware that Southeast
Missouri State didnt have the size
to contain her and used to that her
I saw they had a lot of smaller
players and I just felt it was time to
dominate, Davis said.
Despite Davis having a produc-
tive night on offense, she said she
was disappointed in her lack of
defensive aggression as she only had
two rebounds in her 21 minutes on
the hardwood.
Between Davis and Jackson,
senior guard Angel Goodrich and
sophomore guard Natalie Knight
picked up the rest of the scoring for
the Jayhawks.
Goodrich tallied 17 points with
all her points coming in the first
half. Knight added 10 points going
3-of-9 shooting.
Between those four players, they
scored all but two of the Jayhawks
points going 25-of-51 from the field
and 5-of-12 from the 3-point range.
The rest of the Jayhawks shots just
1-of-14, something that could be
taken from players not knowing
their role on the squad.
I feel like everyone has the tal-
ents and opportunities to score but
Bonnie always talks about that not
everybody has to score. And if youre
that go-to player to score, thats your
role. If youre that go-to player to
rebound, thats your role, Jackson
said. She doesnt expect everyone to
score, but she does expect everyone
to play hard.
At one moment it looked like the
tides had turned for the worse as the
Redhawks started heating up from
behind the arc. Sophomore guard
Allyson Bradshaw led the furious
charge from the outside as she went
5-of-5 from behind the arc for and a
team-high 17 points.
Little No. 11 wasnt suppose
to be wide open. I knew she was
going to have the night of her life,
Henrickson said. That kid came in
here and had a big night. We didnt
make it too hard on her thats for
All but one of the Redhawks
who saw minutes put points on the
board, as they shot 37.5 percent and
53.3 percent from behind the arc.
Defensive intensity isnt where it
should be and it was apparent by
looking at Bradshaws shooting per-
formance. Jackson said the lack of
focus could be avoided if they would
communicate better.
It always reverts back to defense.
Its going to take a while, its only our
second game. Communicating will
help all of that. We have to fix that
now in order to do it now and not in
multiple games, Jackson said.
Although defensive problems still
exist, getting out with a victory is
something Knight is going to take
from it.
Struggled on the defensive end,
struggled with the energy, Knight
said. But being able to grind it out
and get the win is what really helped
us tonight.

Last week KU fans saw what can happen when both James Sims and Tony
Pierson are in the same backfeld and are completely healthy and suspension

Against Iowa State, Kansas will need to be dominant on third down. The Cyclones
have converted only 38 percent of their third-down attempts. Thats one status quo
defensive coordinator Dave Campo would like to keep. If the Jayhawks can show more
progress in limiting big plays and stay sound on third downs, it should be a good day
for Kansas.
As Charlie Weis put it, this game is not about the University, the
football program or the fans. This is about the seniors who have gone
through three coaches, long losing streaks and too many blowouts, but
they have taken it all in stride to become focal points for Weis rebuilding
plan. Saturday is about them and a chance to leave Kansas with one
more fond memory.

Keeping the run effective
week after week has become
a crucial part of the Jayhawks
offense. Kansas coach Charlie
Weis said coming up with new
schemes for his backs is one of
his favorite things he does to
prepare for an opponent. Fans
have to wait and see if it works
PLayer To WaTch
Its all about staying solid for Clint Bo-
wens unit. The Cyclones are averaging 18
yards per kickoff return, nothing daunting,
but they still need to be respected. And now
that Nick Prolago has hit a few feld goals,
he might be a more viable option than he
was in the past.

quesTIoN marKs
Can Kansas keep up the run game?
Fans ask this question every week, because every week it seems more
important. Pierson needs to perform at the level he did against Texas Tech
for Sims to stay effective. Pierson can do this, but will he?
Kansas wins, plain and simple.
Its time for the Jayhawks im-
provement to show up in the win-
loss column. Regardless, Baby
Jay should go wild as soon as the
seniors step onto the feld.

5-5 (2-5)
Steele Jantzs 13 touchdowns and 11 interceptions arent the best numbers for a quar-
terback to have in the Big 12. Hes averaged 171 yards per game with Ernst Brun and Josh
Lenz each co-leading the team with four receiving touchdowns. The offense, coordinated
by Courtney Messingham, has experienced marginal success on the ground from Shontrelle
Johnson. Johnsons rushed for 428 yards and two touchdowns. James White has compli-
mented Johnson as both running backs have touched the ball over 90 times.
Starting Lineup
Iowa States 4-3 defense suffered a big loss with Jake Knotts season ending early due
to a torn left shoulder. A.J. Klein, an All-American candidate, leads the team in tackles
with 78 on the year. The defensive backs have helped carry the Cylcones defense this year
and have created some turnovers. Safeties Durrell Givens and Jaques Washington each
have three interceptions. Givens has scooped up fve fumbles and recorded 21 tackles in
the last two games.
The Cyclones, despite only two wins in the conference, have not been
blown out in any of their games this season. While they have lost a
couple of one-sided games, they have not allowed more than 35 points
this season and are third in the Big 12 in scoring defense. Offensively,
Iowa State hasnt had much success and is in the bottom tier in scor-
ing, passing, rushing and total offense. Rhoads hasnt had the best
offensive output from his team this season.
aT a GLaNce
After working for Utah State and
Ohio State as a graduate assistant,
Paul Rhoads became a defensive backs
coach at Pacifc for three years. He went
on to Iowa State to coach linebackers
and defensive backs for fve years. Af-
terwards, Rhoads became a defensive
coordinator for Pittsburgh for eight
years and for Auburn in 2008. That led
to his frst ever head coaching gig as he
returned to Iowa State in 2009. Rhoads
has coached the Cyclones to a 23-25
record since 2009.
Jeremy Reeves is only
5-foot-7, which is short
for a cornerback. How-
ever, Reeves is tied for
third in the conference
in pass breakups and
leads the team with 10.
In the past, Reeves used
his breakaway speed to
gain a lot of yards after
pulling in an interception.
He has yet to intercept a pass this year but hopes to
change that on Saturday.
PLayer To WaTch
Edwin Arceo, who handles kickoffs and feld goals,
has connected on only 7-of-11 feld goals and 26-of-29
extra point attempts this season. Returners Jarvis West
and Josh Lenz havent found any success in the return
game. Even though Kansas was lit up by Oklahoma
with a kick return and punt return back for a touch-
down, it hasnt allowed a big return since then.
sPecIaL Teams
quesTIoN marKs
Will Iowa State move the ball against Kansas?
Iowa State ranked last in the Big 12 in total offense and will face a Kansas team
that hasnt defended the pass well. Quarterback Steele Jantz is coming off his fourth
game where hes thrown more interceptions than touchdowns. The Cyclones have an
opportunity to win, but it all depends on Jantzs performance.
Iowa State spoils the party on
Senior Night and fnds a win at
Memorial Stadium. The Cyclones
havent played particularly well
this year. With Saturday night be-
ing Senior Night for Kansas, the
seniors would love to end their last
home showing with a win.

or the 2012 NFL Season, the league
made the decision to expand its
Tursday Night Football package to
13 games, with the games airing on the NFL
Network. Tis was a bad move not only for
NFL teams but also for the fans.
I understand that having Tursday Night
games gives the consumer another night to
watch the NFL, but this idea sounds better
than it is. With these games airing on the
NFL Network, most fans wont be able to
watch the game without paying to subscribe
to the network. Tis part of it makes sense
for the NFL because its tactics and business
savvy have made it the most successful and
proftable professional sports league in North
America. I dont doubt that the popularity of
the NFL and the passion fans have for its re-
spective teams will get people to purchase ac-
cess to the NFL Network so they will never
have to miss a game. Teres only one prob-
lem with this formula: Tese Tursday Night
football matchups have been dreadful.
Here are some examples of the boring
matchups that Tursday Night Football has
provided us with: New York Giants (6-4) vs.
Carolina Panthers (2-7), Arizona Cardinals
(4-5) vs. St. Louis Rams (3-5-1), and com-
ing to you tonight, a heavyweight matchup
between the Miami Dolphins (4-5) and the
Bufalo Bills (3-6). Like I mentioned earlier,
I understand why the NFL is having these
Tursday night games. Te league wants to
make money and please its loyal fans by giv-
ing them another day with an NFL game.
I also dont mean to insult these teams;
many of them have won Super Bowls, which
is something I cant say for my Minnesota Vi-
kings (who were beaten on Tursday Night
Football by the Buccaneers three weeks ago).
Its just that I want the customers who pay
for the NFL Network to get the bang for their
buck. If the NFL is going to make the fans
pay more to watch these games, it should
give them better matchups. Tese Tursday
Night games are also unbenefcial to the NFL
Player safety has been the biggest issue in
the NFL during the last few years with re-
ports of the trauma hits to the head can cause
for NFL players. Te league is changing its
rules to try to prevent these hits and bring
awareness to the safety issues, but why make
players who are coming of a game on Sun-
day play another game with little rest?
Im not saying a player playing a game on
Tursday instead of Sunday increases his
chances of getting injured, but it seems to
be going against the NFLs views on players
safety. It remains to be seen whether the NFL
will continue to have Tursday Night games
for most of the season, but if I had to guess,
the money that comes from the NFL Net-
work will prove to be too much for the league
to resist.

Q: Which team has the best win-
ning percentage on Thursday Night
A: Indianapolis Colts. After last
Thursdays game against Jackson-
ville, the Colts have a .900 winning
percentage in these games.
The frst prime time Thanksgiv-
ing game on the NFL Network was
played between the Denver Broncos
and Kansas City Chiefs on Novem-
ber 23, 2006.
fAct of thE DAY
I dont like it. I think its tough on
the players. We have quite a few play-
ers that sometimes dont get back on
the practice feld until Thursday. So I
think this is a tough turnaround for a
football team and for the players in

As a starting linebacker, soph-
omore Ben Heeney exceeded
expectations and impressed his
teammates and coaches this year.
Heeney leads the Big 12 with 91
tackles this season.
Te most important part about
his success is that hes never
played linebacker before.
At Hutchinson High School,
Heeney served as a running back
and safety. He worked hard of-
fensively and rushed for over
2,000 yards his senior year. But
he made his mark on the other
side with 156 career tackles, four
interceptions and 17 tackles for a
loss in his three years as a safety
on the varsity team.
Hes very tenacious on de-
fense, and Im sure you see that
now, Hutchinson High School
coach Randy Dreiling said. He
was always aggressive and a great
Heeney is still going through
the learning curve of playing line-
backer in the Big 12. Even though
hes still learning, hes managed to
become one of the leaders for the
Jayhawks defense.
Ive always been working hard
and trying to play hard, Heeney
said. Its been an easy transi-
tion for me. I just need to get in
my books and get the defense
Individually, Heeneys played
well in his new position this year
or at least well enough to grab
the attention of Kansas coach
Charlie Weis. Weis liked what he
saw on flm out of Heeney last
year and is more awestruck from
what hes seen up front and in
Youve seen him all year long
playing like a wild man on every
play, Weis said. You would have
seen it on special teams a year be-
fore, too, so you wouldve already
seen him run down and make
plays. Now we just put him in a
position on the defense to do the
same thing, and hes gotten sig-
nifcantly better. Hes signifcant-
ly better now than what he was at
the beginning of the year.
Heeney credits his success
to linebackers coach DeMontie
Cross. Heeney meets with Cross
three times per week to receive
advice and focus on what he
needs to improve.
While trying to learn the posi-
tion, he spent a lot of time with
junior linebacker Huldon Tarp.
Tarp and Heeney were room-
mates last year during road trips.
He was still fresh at the posi-
tion, so I tried to give him point-
ers because its obviously diferent
from playing safety, Tarp said.
He loves to hit, and hes got a lot
of the intangibles that I think he
Afer he contributed to special
teams last year, Heeney is now a
full-time starter as a sophomore.
With the success hes having now,
it builds the possibility of him be-
ing one of the better linebackers
in the nation later in his college
football career.
He doesnt have everything
yet because hes a young guy, de-
fensive coordinator Dave Campo
said. Hes got pretty good speed,
and hes tough. Tere are some
guys who are more talented ath-
letically, but you cant buy the
stuf he has inside.
Heeney hasnt focused on his
individual success so much be-
cause hes been more concerned
about the teams success. He
didnt even know he led the Big
12 in tackles until a teammate
informed him about it.
But with little faws and lots
of upside, Heeney is hopeful that
the program will become success-
ful, alongside his individual skills
during his time here at Kansas.
As for the long-term future,
his teammates wont be surprised
if an NFL team drafs him afer
his time in Kansas is up.
If he keeps going the way he
is, hes got a chance to play on
Sundays, Tarp said. Hes got
plenty of efort, and thats a huge
thing, especially at the linebacker

Jared Bryant, sophomore forward
Despite only playing
in 19 minutes in the
Mocs opening victory,
Bryant went three-of-
three from the feld for
eight points. He also
added seven rebounds
for the Mocs. Bryant is
part of a bench that is relied on heavily as
the bench scored 42 of the 88 points.
Freshman forward Jamari Traylor
Traylor showed
how much of an
athletic freak he
is by having two of
his plays from the
Michigan State
game make it on
Top Ten plays. With
Kansas facing another smaller lineup,
which center Jeff Withey has a history of
struggling against, Traylors energy and
athleticism will be a big boost coming
off the bench for Kansas.

Jeff Withey, Senior Center
By his own admission, Withey doesnt like
playing against smaller lineups such as the one
he will face tonight in Chattanooga. Unfortu-
nately for him, not every team he plays against
will line up another seven-footer for him to go
against, and hell have to learn to get in better
positions to defend smaller forwards.

Perry Ellis, Freshman Forward
Ellis disappeared against Michigan State,
partly because he couldnt hang with its physi-
cal style of play. The freshman should have an
easier time using his fnesse moves down low
against Chattanooga and get back to scoring in
the double digits.

Travis Releford, Senior Guard
Releford didnt crash the boards against
Michigan State with the same enthusiasm he
did in the Jayhawks season opener. The hustle-
player still has yet to fnd his stroke from be-
yond the arc, missing all six of his attempts on
the season, but he should have an easier going
against a less-physical Chattanooga team.

Ben McLemore,Freshman Guard
McLemore still shows his youth at times, but
he is always one of the most athletic players on
the court. He should play a key role in the Jay-
hawks offense, as well as using his impressive
jumping ability to grab rebounds on both ends
of the foor.

Elijah Johnson, Senior Guard
Johnson is still trying to fnd a happy medium
between running the Jayhawks offense and tak-
ing control of the game when he needs to. At the
start of the second half against Michigan State,
Johnson looked like he was about to take control
of the game before suddenly taking a more pas-
sive role in the offense.

7 p.m., Lawrence, Kan.
Kansas (1-1) is facing a quick turn-
around after its tough three-point loss
to Michigan State in the Champions
Classic on Tuesday night in Atlanta.
The Jayhawks will be anxious to take the
court in order to wash the bad taste out
of their mouths.
The Mocs are coming off a year when they
posted a 11-21 record and going 5-13 in the
Southern Conference. Head coach John Sul-
man is in his eighth year at Chattanooga,
where he has compiled a 132-127 record
with two NCAA tournament appearances.
The Mocs return one lone starter from a sea-
son ago in Drazen Zlovaric, a senior from
Serbia. The Mocs opened their season on
Monday Nov. 12 against Tennessee Temple,
who the Mocs defeated 88-53 with junior
Z. Mason leading the way with 16 points.
This will be the third meeting against the
Jayhawks, with Kansas winning the two pre-
vious meetings.

question mArk
Kansas 88, Chattanooga 55
heAr ye, heAr ye
heAr ye, heAr ye
BiG JAy will cheer if...
Drazen Zlovaric, RS Senior forward
The Serbian native has made his presence felt in Chattanooga, Tenn.
Last season he averaged 10.2 points per game and led the Mocs with
6.4 rebounds and a feld goal percentage of 54.9 percent
per game. Zlovaric played in all 32 games for the Mocs a
season ago and was able to produce 19 double-digit scoring
games, with a career high of 22 points against the Univer-
sity of North Carolina at Greensboro. Hes off to a similar
start as he grabbed eight rebounds and put up 11 points in
the Mocs opening game victory against Tennessee Temple.
Zlovaric has shown a knack for playing strong against tough
opponents. When the Mocs squared off against Kentucky, Tennessee, In-
diana and Butler, Zlovaric averaged 10.3 points and 8.3 rebounds in
those games with his best game coming against Kentucky, where he put
up 15 points and nine rebounds.
Z. Mason, RS Junior Forward
Mason is a former tight end, the No. 2 ranked tight end
coming out of high school in 2009, for Ole Miss before
transferring to Chattanooga where he needs to become a
good low presence. Last season, Mason averaged 5.6 points
and 5.6 rebounds per game. Despite suffering a knee injury
that cost him seven games, Mason was still second on the
team in rebounding. In the Mocs opening game, Mason had
a team-high 16 points on seven-of-12 shooting and also
pulled down fve rebounds.

Ronrico White, sophomore guard
White is a combo guard who has the ability to play with
or without the ball. Last season, White was a reserve player
who played 13.8 minutes per game. In the limited minutes
White played, he was trigger happy from behind the arc. He
did lead the Mocs with a 40.4 percentage from behind the
arc a season ago. In the Mocs opening game, he couldnt
get many shots to fall but was able to get to the free throw
line, where he recorded seven of his nine points.
Gee McGhee, freshman guard
Coming out of high school in Baton Rouge, McGhee was
the No. 3 ranked shooting guard according to
While in high school, McGhee averaged 29.2 points per game
as a senior. McGhees scoring impact wasnt felt in the Mocs
opening victory, as he managed just six points on two-of-
eight shooting and one-of-seven from three-point range.
Casey Jones, freshman guard
Jones was McGhees high school teammate in Baton
Rouge but wasnt as highly regarded as his teammate. Jones
averaged 18.8 points and 8.4 rebounds per game as a se-
nior. Like McGhee, Jones impact in the Mocs opening game
was minimal as he posted four points on one-of-fve shoot-
ing and fouled out of the game in the second half.
Which Kansas shooting team
will show up?
In their season opener, the Jayhawks
only made two 3-point shots all game
despite getting many open looks on
21 attempts. They shot much better,
four-of-nine, against Michigan State
although they took less than half the
amount of shots.
Will the Mocs be able to knock off
a ranked opponent on the road?
The Mocs havent had much success
against ranked opponents in the past. They
are just 3-47 against top 25 teams with
their last victory coming in the 1997 NCAA
tournament, when they defeated No. 19 Il-
linois 75-63 to advance to the Sweet 16. The
Mocs are also 0-23 against top 25 teams on
the road.
Whenever you got the shot clock all
the way down to 10, for them to score is
kind of frustrating, so we need to work,
defnitely, on that.
Jeff Withey on allowing Mich-
igan State to score late in the shot
Lets go out there and play our guts out,
and go out and learn. Lets go out and play
against one of the best teams in the country
and get better. What an opportunity. Win or
lose or whatever, lets get better.
Head coach John Shulman on
Kansas defense uses its length and
athletic ability to force early turnovers,
allowing them to run the court and cruise
to an easy victory.
The Jayhawks commit careless turnovers
on offense, allowing Chattanooga to keep
the score low and keep the upset vibe alive
into the second half.
1-1, (0-0 BiG 12)
1-0, (0-0 BiG 12)
BABy JAy will cry if...
No. 1 KaNsas state 10-0 (7-0) at Baylor 4-5 (1-5)

Kansas State will visit a struggling Baylor team that has won only one
game in the conference. Kansas State currently owns the No. 1 rank in the
BCS and wants to hold on to that.
Kansas coach Bill Snyder wont do anything diferent ofensively to pre-
pare for this game. Te Wildcats wont have any problems running the ball
against a weak run defense.
Baylor knows it must bring its best efort against a good Kansas State
team. In doing so, the Bears must have Nick Florence and Terrance Wil-
liams on the same page against the Wildcats defense.
But Kansas States rushing attack, provided by Collin Klein and John
Hubert, will be too much for Baylor to handle.

Kansas State wins, 38-10
No. 12 oKlahoma 7-2 (5-1) at West VirgiNia 5-4 (2-4)

West Virginias season hasnt gone its way this year. Te Mountain-
eers have allowed 41 points per game, and that does not bode well for
their matchup this week against the Sooners, whove scored 40 points per
Landry Jones has done a good job this season as hes distributed the
ball well with receivers Justin Brown and Kenny Stills in particular. West
Virginias defense will have a hard time defending Brown and Stills and
stopping the run against Damien Williams and Brennan Clay.
West Virginias defense, led by quarterback Geno Smith, will be able to
score against Oklahomas defense coordinated by Mike Stoops. However,
until its defense learns to prevent opponents from lighting up the score-
board, its losing streak will continue.

Oklahoma wins, 56-35

No. 23 texas tech 7-3 (4-3) at No. 24 oKlahoma state 6-3 (4-2)

Saturdays matchup between Texas Tech and Oklahoma State features a
battle between two similar Big 12 teams that are beside each other in the
BCS rankings.
Oklahoma State has succeeded under diferent quarterbacks this season
and remain one of the top-scoring teams in the nation. Texas Techs of-
fense has dominated in the passing game and rank frst in the nation in
total passing yards.
Te winner of this game will be decided by which team has the better
defense on Saturday. Te bad news for Oklahoma State fans is the fact that
the Cowboys havent consistently defended well against the pass.
Seth Doege leads the Big 12 in touchdown passes and has some of the
biggest end zone threats in college football today in Darrin Moore and
Eric Ward.

Texas Tech wins, 41-31

Big 12 predictions for Week 12
SOUTH BEND, Ind. Coach
Brian Kelly says he doesnt believe
third-ranked Notre Dames season
will be lessened if the Fighting Irish
fnish the season undefeated and
dont win a national championship.
I would tell our players that ev-
erything that was within their con-
trol, they handled and that theyre
champions because of it. A poll-
ster or computer rankings really
cant diminish what youve accom-
plished, Kelly said Wednesday in
an interview with Te Associated
Press. I can tell you this, the ring
will still be as big. Now, we may not
have that crystal ball down there,
but well have a lot of signage.
Kansas State (.9674) is in frst
in the BCS standings, followed by
Oregon (.9497) and Notre Dame
(.9396). If things remain that way
through the end of the season, Kan-
sas State and Oregon would play for
the national championship and the
Irish (10-0) would be lef out.
Kelly said he believes Kansas
State and Oregon are higher in
the standings simply because they
started the season higher in the
rankings and have stayed there.
He said the main reason the
Wildcats are ahead of the Irish is
because: Tey got to Oklahoma
before we did.
Te Wildcats beat Oklahoma 24-
19 on Sept. 22. Te Irish beat the
Sooners 30-13 on Oct. 27.
If you just pulled Kansas State
out and looked at their schedule
and who they beat and you pulled
Notre Dame out and you looked at
them, I think a reasonable person
would say, I think I can see Notre
Dame being ahead of Kansas State
in this situation.
It wouldnt be the frst time Kelly
has had an undefeated team that
missed out playing for a national
championship. Cincinnati fnished
the regular-season 12-0 and fn-
ished third in the BCS standings.
Kelly accepted the job at Notre
Dame and the Bearcats, playing
without Kelly, lost 51-24 to ffh-
ranked Florida in the Sugar Bowl.
Alabama won the national champi-
onship that season.
Kelly said just like that year, hes
focused only on what he and the
Irish can control. If the Irish fn-
ish the season unbeaten, it will be a
special season, Kelly said.
Undefeated seasons are magi-
cal, he said. You dont need to
be validated by polls. Because you
have done everything you could
have done.

Murphy tied a career-high with 24
points just days after dealing with
an illness, and No. 10 Florida beat
22nd-ranked Wisconsin 74-56 on
Wednesday night.
Murphy made all 10 of his
shots, including two from 3-point
range, as the short-handed Gators
enjoyed a double-digit lead most
of the night. He also had seven
Mike Rosario added 15 points,
four rebounds and four assists for
Florida (2-0), and Kenny Boynton
chipped in 10.
Sam Dekker and Jared Berggren
had 11 points apiece for Wisconsin
The Gators, playing without
point guard Scottie Wilbekin
(suspension) and forward Casey
Prather (concussion), essentially
won the game with fast starts in
both halves. Florida scored the first
nine points of the game and the
first seven after intermission.
Murphy was involved in both
runs. He made a baseline hook that
seemed to get him started early. He
added a jumper, a putback and a
3-pointer that pushed the lead to
The Badgers (1-1), meanwhile,
came out flat, missing their first
six shots including five from
behind the arc.
That hole proved too big to
overcome against the hot-shooting
Florida hit 18 of 24 shots (75
percent) in the first 20 minutes
and extended the lead to 19 (50-31)
early in the second half. Boynton
converted the 13th four-point play
of his career to open the second
half. Murphy followed with a post
basket, and then Boyton added a
driving layup.
The Badgers never cut the lead
below 12 the rest of the way.
Murphy had been questionable
to play. He missed practice ear-
lier this week with an illness that
caused bad headaches, nausea and
vomiting. Not only did he play, he
also started.
And didnt miss!
He became the fourth play-
er in school history and 18th in
Southeastern Conference history
to take at least 10 shots in a game
and make them all.
The Gators probably needed his
effort after coach Billy Donovan
was forced to practice with four
upperclassmen and four freshmen
earlier in the week. Its unknown
when Wilbekin will be reinstated,
and Prather could miss at least
another week after sustaining two
concussions in practice during a
nine-day span.
The only negative for Florida
was 20 turnovers. Playing without
Wilbekin, Rosario and Boynton
shared ball-handling duties, and
the Gators turned it over 12 times
in before the break.
But they had enough offense to
make the turnovers negligible.
Freshman Michael Frazier II
had eight points and five rebounds
for Florida. Fellow forward Will
Yeguete finished with nine points
and eight boards.
It was the first of several chal-
lenges before SEC play. The Gators
also play UCF, Marquette, Florida
State, Arizona and Kansas State
before league play the toughest
non-conference slate in Donovans
17 seasons in Gainesville.

Jayhawks look to rebound tonight
senior guard travis Releford sprints past a Michigan state defender toward the basket. On tuesday, the Jayhawks lost to the spartans 67-64 in the Champions Classic.
Instead of having a week to
brood over its three-point loss to
Michigan State in the Champions
Classic, the Kansas mens basket-
ball team gets a chance to hop right
back on the court tonight when
it tips-off against Chattanooga at
7 p.m.
We can put this one behind
us, and we dont have to go a
whole week thinking about this
loss, senior guard Travis Releford
said after the Champions Classic
on Tuesday night. We get into the
gym tomorrow and get ready for
the next game.
The Jayhawks had a five-point
lead with less than five minutes
remaining, but after a late surge
by the Spartans, Kansas failed to
The Jayhawks sputtered and
could not answer each punch
thrown by the Spartans.
I dont want to take credit for
what they did, but we also gave
them extra possessions, Releford
said. When we had the lead, we
were doing stuff out of character
and just turned the ball over there
at the end when we were up those
few points.
With Chattanooga in town,
Kansas is looking to put together
its first complete game of the sea-
son, where the offense executes
and doesnt fade when pressure
sets in.
We didnt run offense down the
stretch, Kansas coach Bill Self said.
I thought we actually executed
our offense better than we had all
year long for about 30 minutes. I
thought we had the ball where we
wanted to get it. We missed a lot of
bunnies, too.
But mostly, the game offers
the Jayhawks a chance to put the
Champions Classic loss behind
Im definitely ready to go out
and get the bad taste out of my
mouth, freshman forward Jamari
Traylor said.
Frankamp SignS Letter
oF intent
Conner Frankamp, a four-star
guard according to,
signed his national letter of intent
to play for the Kansas mens basket-
ball team on Wednesday.
Frankamp, a Wichita native,
gave Kansas an verbal commitment
during his sophomore year of high
school. The six-foot point guard
led Wichita North to the 2012 state
quarterfinals. Rivals ranks him as
the 30th best player in the 2013
recruiting class.
I think Conner is one of the
best guards we have recruited since
weve been here, Kansas coach Bill
Self said in a press release. He can
score. Hes sneaky athletic and can
play the one and the two and will
be a great combo guard in our
Frankamp currently sits 528
points behind current Kansas for-
ward Perry Ellis as Wichitas all-
time leading scorer. If he aver-
ages 28 points per game his senior
season, Frankamp could overtake
Ellis record of 2,231 points.
Additionally, the high school
standout has extensive interna-
tional experience. Last summer,
Frankamp, with 14.1 points per
game, was the leading scorer on the
under-17 team that won the gold
medal in the 2012 FIBA World
Other players enjoy playing
with him, and I absolutely love
watching him play, Self said.

Monroe had 19 points, 18 rebounds
and six assists to help the Detroit
Pistons beat the Philadelphia 76ers
94-76 on Wednesday night for their
first win of the season.
Kyle Singler scored 16 points,
and Tayshaun Prince and Brandon
Knight each scored 15 points for a
Detroit (1-8) team off to its worst
start in franchise history. Playing
their seventh road game out of
nine games this season, the Pistons
controlled the lethargic Sixers from
the opening tip.
The Sixers easily played their
worst game of the season, making
only 25 of 84 shots, for 30 per-
cent. Lavoy Allen led them with
14 points.
Without injured center Andrew
Bynum, the Sixers continued to
get dominated inside. They were
outrebounded by 17 in Mondays
loss to Milwaukee and got crushed
on the boards 33-15 by halftime in
this one. Monroe had nine at the
break or as many as the Sixers
starting lineup combined.
Philadelphia missed 30 of 43
shots in the first half and made
only five of 10 free throws.
The Pistons had plenty of room
to maneuver in the paint Singler
scored 13, Prince had 12 and
Monroe 11 points in the first half.
Detroit had most of its fun in the
second quarter, stretching a two-
point lead into 52-34 at the break.
They made only three 3-pointers
all game, scoring the bulk of their
points on mid-range jumpers and
easy buckets around the basket.
The Sixers again struggled with
their halfcourt offense, showing
little ball movement and firing up
long jumpers as the shot clock
ticked down. Bynum hasnt played
all season because of a bone bruise
and isnt expected back until at least
early January. Its clear they need
help in the middle because the
Brown-Spencer Hawes-Thaddeus
Young combination has been a
The Pistons played so well they
didnt even need both eyes on
the ball from the free-throw line.
Monroe was fouled on a drive down
the line and appeared to lose a con-
tact in the process. He touched his
right eye, squinted, and buried the
first one. His contact recovered
and in place, he clanked the second
attempt. The moment was good for
a chuckle in a game that turned
into a laugher.

Harden leads Rockets win,
scores 30 against Hornets
HOUSTON James Harden
scored 30 points, Omer Asik
added 15 points and 12 rebounds,
and the Houston Rockets held off
the New Orleans Hornets 100-96
on Wednesday night.
Harden went 10 for 20 from the
field but only 1 of 7 from 3-point
range. He reached 30 points for
the third time in seven games
with the Rockets.
Greivis Vasquez scored a career-
high 24 for the Hornets, despite
hurting his left ankle in the third
quarter and briefly leaving the
game. Anthony Davis had only
eight points on 2-for-7 shooting.
The Rockets built a 21-point
lead in the first half, but the
Hornets played better defense in
the second to close the gap.
Chandler Parsons sank a pivot-
al 3-pointer and fadeaway jumper
late to help Houston win for the
second time in five home games.
The Rockets took the floor
while first-round draft pick Royce
White remained absent from the
team. The 6-foot-8 White called
the team inconsistent in its
efforts to help him cope with his
anxiety disorder and fear of fly-
ing, and he sent out a series of
often critical tweets throughout
the day.
After a slow start, the Rockets
hardly seemed distracted.
Reserves Marcus Morris and
Toney Douglas both hit a pair
of 3s early in the second quarter
as the Rockets surged to a 47-38
lead. Houston started 7 for 10
from the field overall in the quar-
ter. Morris stayed on the floor
when the starters returned, and
scored on consecutive drives to
stretch the lead to 52-40.
Morris just beat the halftime
buzzer with another 3 to put the
Rockets up 64-45. After hitting
his first four shots, Vasquez didnt
take a shot in the second quar-
ter. Davis, coming off a 23-point,
11-rebound effort against
Charlotte, had only one field goal
and four points in the first half.
New Orleans defended the
perimeter better in the third quar-
ter and trimmed the deficit to
six. Houston led 85-76 after three
quarters, despite going 7 for 18
from the field and hitting only
two 3s in the third.
Vasquez missed a corner 3 at
the buzzer, his only miss in four
attempts from long range. 785.842.0032 | 2511 West 31st Street | Lawrence, KS 66047

Tobias Harris scored the frst
fve points in the Bucks opening
spurt. Milwaukee, which lost all

Te Bucks led 60-34 lead at
halfime on 48 percent shooting.
Indiana, meanwhile, shot just 32
percent in the frst half. Milwau-
kees lead was 82-53 heading into
the fourth.
Te bad blood between the
Bucks and Pacers, who were
involved in a couple of ugly on-
court altercations last season,
continued Wednesday night
when Larry Sanders was called
for a fagrant foul on Hans-
brough in the the third quarter.
Te foul initially lef Hansbrough
sprawled on the court but he
quickly jumped to his feet and
ran toward the Bucks forward.
Te two were quickly separated

Growing up in Manhattan, Reid
Buchanan, who is now a sopho-
more at the University where he is
majoring in electrical engineering,
saw this scene every year. It was
even more powerful because both
of his parents received degrees
from K-State, and his father works
for the K-State football and basket-
ball teams.
As Buchanan was looking at
schools that allowed him to con-
tinue to run both cross country
and track and field, he decided to
make the visit 84 miles east to visit
Before I took a visit to KU, it
was very much anti-KU, Buchanan
said. I said Id never go here. But
after I took a visit, it kind of opened
my eyes.
Buchanans father, Mike, said it
was a matter of courtesy that they
took the visit to the University.
At the time, he and I thought
there was no way, but KU was
close, Mike said. When the visit
was done, we kind of knew this
was a done deal. And as much as
it might have pained us to realize
that, I think it was the best fit.
Mike said its weird that his son
decided to go to the University and
that he still cringes when he has to
put on a crimson and blue shirt.
Were getting used to that
Jayhawk being on the front instead
of the power cat, Mike said. I
never thought I wouldve approved
of it.
Having such strong ties to
K-State as the Buchanan family
has, Mike said his colleagues give
him some odd
looks for hav-
ing to wear the
enemy colors.

isnt a common

The hardest thing is getting
Manhattan kids to come out, but
once they do its not hard to sell
the program because you can show
them what the program can give
them, Whittlesey said.
Shelley, Buchanans mother,
graduated from K-State with two
degrees. Though shes happy with
Buchanans choice because thats a
motherly thing to do, she said, she
still cant believe her son decided to
come to the University.
We were really shocked that
Reid decided on KU because he
was just as anti-KU as us, Shelley
Buchanan said if it were not
for his athletic career, his feelings
wouldve stayed the same.

thunder fall as Grizzlies keep streak alive
Gay scored a season-high 28
points, Zach Randolph added 20
points and 11 rebounds before get-
ting ejected along with Oklahoma
Citys Kendrick Perkins dur-
ing a late-game altercation and
the Memphis Grizzlies beat the
Thunder 107-97 on Wednesday
Marc Gasol chipped in 14
points as the Grizzlies continued
the best start in franchise history
by winning their sixth straight
game. They took control by out-
scoring Oklahoma City by 21 in
the second quarter, and never gave
it up.
Kevin Durant scored a sea-
son-high 34 points and Russell
Westbrook had 17 points and 13
assists as both Oklahoma City All-
Stars logged more than 42 minutes
for the second straight game while
trying to lead a fourth-quarter
This time it fell short as the
Thunder had their five-game win-
ning streak snapped.
The Grizzlies went to their twin
towers inside with Oklahoma City
threatening to come back from a
double-digit deficit in the fourth
quarter for the second straight
game. Coach Lionel Hollins called
for a timeout after Perkins two-
handed slam got the Thunder
within 97-89 with 4:18 to play.
He sent his team back out with
Gasol isolated against Perkins,
and Gasol twisted his way in for
a layup. After a missed jumper
by Serge Ibaka at the other end,
Gasol set up Randolph for a layup
off a designed play.
After a pair of empty trips by
both teams, referee Ken Mauer
tossed both Perkins and Randolph
after the two confronted each
other between a pair of free
throws by Westbrook. After the
ejections, Randolph and Perkins
tried to approach each other while
being restrained by teammates
before finally heading out tunnels
at opposite ends of Chesapeake
Energy Arena.
By then, Memphis had all but
locked up the latest in a series
of testy games between the two
young Western Conference play-
off contenders who got to know
each other all too well during a
seven-game series in the playoffs
two seasons ago.
Ibaka finished with 17 points,
eight rebounds and four blocks for
the Thunder.
Quincy Pondexter contribut-
ed 13 points and Jerryd Bayless
scored 12 as Memphis bench out-
performed the Thunder reserves.
Both teams retooled their reserves
during the offseason, with the

This year we celebrate the 100th
anniversary of the University
Daily Kansan being a daily news-
paper. The first issue appeared in
1912, becoming the first college
daily paper in Kansas according
We now present the Retro
Section, a first-time and one-
time-only section. With a little
bit of old and new stories, I think
you guys will find this as enter-
taining as I found putting this
issue together to be. It was fun
to see how the Kansan covered
local and national issues over the
years, even after my several trips
to Spencer Research Library to
retrieve the old issues.
For the first time ever, the
Kansan is giving recognition to
John McLendon, a University
alumnus who coached a top-
secret basketball game in the
1940s. With the mentoring of
Naismith, McLendon changed
the game and racial segregation
at the University. You cant miss
reading this story on page six.
You will also find old sto-
ries that were published in the
Kansan from different decades.
And let me tell you, as I retyped
these stories word for word, I felt
like I was there. They were long
and detailed; people must have
had longer attention spans back
then. But have no fear, these
articles were far from boring.
I felt the excitement as I tran-
scribed the stories of Manning
making both his free throw shots
to win the national champion-
ship basketball game in 1988
and the anxiousness when Elmo
Hardy, an associate professor at
the University, was the first num-
ber drawn in the military draft
of 1940.
Heres to 100 more years of
The Kansan.
The Kansas Union was ravaged
Monday night by a fire that caused
extensive damage to 40,000 square
feet in the south half of the building.
The fire, confined to the upper
half of the building, apparently start-
ed near the Pine Room and spread
immediately to the roof, which was
completely destroyed in the older
section of the building.
Bill Rowlands, information coun-
ter manager and night manager of
the Union, discovered the Union
I heard something pop, he said.
It sounded like a light bulb explod-
ing and I ran upstairs. I think that
everyone in the building noticed
the smoke about the same time and
evacuated the building.
Fire trucks arrived 15 minutes
after the fire was reported. Frank
Burge, Union director, told firemen
when they arrived the fire was con-
firmed at the center and western sec-
tions of the roof at that time.
After an hour and a half of fight-
ing the fire, flames of 20 to 30 feet
shot off the roof and scorched the
center tower of the Union.
The intensity of the flames caved
in the roof and leaped to the south
addition of the building, caving in
that section.
The fire was finally brought under
control around 2 a.m. today after
flames had gutted the top two floors
of the Unions main section.
Lawrence Fire Chief Fred Sanders
said the fire started near an eleva-
tor on the third floor near the Pine
The man in the Union said there
was a definite explosion, Sanders
said. It blew plaster off the ceiling
and tore off the elevator door.
Later this morning Sanders said it
could possibly be three days before
the official cause of the fire was
known, but added, In my opinion,
it was set.
Sanders said he reached his con-
clusion after talking to firemen and
policemen at the scene. University
of Kansas Chancellor E. Laurence
Chalmers, who is in Washington D.C.
attending a conference of University
presidents and administrators, said
in a telephone statement early this
morning, it now may become obvi-
ous necessity to appeal to strengthen
campus security to prevent further
incidents from occurring at KU.
Chalmers said he was first
informed of the fire in the Kansas
Union at his hotel in Washington. He
said University Executive Secretary
Ray Nichols called him about 1 a.m.
(EST) and at that time little informa-
tion was available concerning the
It certainly seems, Chalmers
said, that the three attempts at arson
on the KU campus on April 8 and
the three actual fires in the com-
munity the last three weeks seems
to suggest that it is a pyromaniac at
work. I do not think, however, that it
is the work of one person or perhaps
two or three people.
Chalmers said he does not plan to
return to Lawrence any earlier than
scheduled unless he gets a report that
there is something he can do.
An estimated 2,000 people viewed
the blazing building while several
more aided firemen in any way they
could. Many attempted to clear the
building of furniture, help balance
fire hoses, and provide coffee and
doughnuts to the fire fighters.
The fire could have been a lot
worse without student help, said
Fire Chief Sanders.
Director Burge said the building
was adequately insured, but for all
practical purposes the entire south
half of the building is a total loss.
The Union, Burge said, will defi-
nitely be closed until further notifi-
cation from him.

Basketball runs through the
veins of KU. Its part of the KU
tradition that brings together stu-
dents, past and present, to share
in the experience that is Kansas
basketball. Despite changes,
there has always been one con-
stant at KU that holds many gen-
erations of its alumni together:
KU basketball has a huge
impact on the school, Cole
Klostermann, a freshman from
Dubuque, Iowa, said. It brings
people on campus together.
Theres a connectedness that
everyone feels on campus because
of basketball, because of the his-
tory and tradition; its a really
great thing to be a part of.
The sport has been here nearly
as long as the University.
In 1898, James Naismith, the
father of basketball, came to the
University, bringing basketball
along with him. In the early form
of basketball, the game was very
different from what it is today.
The game was simple consist-
ing of only 13 rules. In 2010,
alumus David Booth bought
these rules for the University for
$4.3 million, demonstrating how
much basketball meant to him
and to the University. The origi-
nal rules are planned to be on dis-
play in 2014 as a part of the Booth
Family Hall of Athletics.
It was under these original
rules that the tradition of KU
basketball began.
Naismith coached the inau-
gural season in 1898 until
1907, when he stepped down to
become athletic director. It was
then that the University decided
to hire Forrest Phog Allen, one
of Naismiths former players, as
Allens time as head coach is
one of the central reasons the
basketball tradition is as strong
as is it is today. He coached
the Jayhawks for 39 years, lead-
ing the team to 24 conference
championships, three Final Four
appearances and three national
After his success as a coach,
Allen became known as the
Father of Basketball Coaching.
His program produced basketball
coaching legends such as Adolph
Rupp and Dean Smith, who con-
tinued to spread basketball across
the nation. However, none of this
may have happened if it wasnt
for the basketball tradition at the
Allen retired in 1956, one year
after Allen Fieldhouse was built in
his name. However, the Jayhawks
have continued to flourish.
KU has won 55 regular confer-
ence championships, including
eight consecutive championships
under coach Bill Self. Kansas has
made 14 Final Four appearances
and won five national champion-
As the sport of basketball
evolves, with numerous rule
changes and star athletes are
produced, one name is still syn-
onymous with the sport: the
University of Kansas. Its a name
thats looking to continue this
tradition even longer.

Basketball is a
successful tradition
There was a time in KUs his-
tory when students had more to
worry about than how to avoid
different organizations vying for
their attention outside of Wescoe
In the early 70s, students ven-
tured onto a racially and politi-
cally charged campus every day.
They packed up their backpacks
and their courage as racial and
political protests became a com-
mon occurrence.
Mike Reid, the director of KU
History, said a protest on May
9, 1969, against the Vietnam
War interrupted a review of the
ROTC. Protesters broke down
the gate to the field and shouted
Hell no, we wont go and held
signs that read ROTC off cam-
This was just one of many
incidents that progressed in vio-
lence as the year wore on. By
1970, violent protests were at an
all-time high.
In the time between 1965 and
1971, there were more protests
than any other time in our his-
tory, Reid said. There not only
was the ROTC protest, but a pro-
test in the streets where a couple
of people died.
According to,
five days of violence broke out on
July 16, 1970, after a 19-year-old
black male was shot as he fled
from local police. This ongoing
confrontation of student anti-
war activists and civil rights
advocates against Lawrence law
enforcement was also the cause
of the death of freshman Henry
Not only were there protests,
but also fires because of bombs
on campus.
There was a firebomb set off
in the Union that did over $1
million of damage to the ball-
room, Reid said. It was noticed
by a couple of campus police-
men, and students and firefight-
ers worked to put the fire out
and evacuate the building of
important objects.
No specific group was ever
tied to the fire at the Union
on April 20, 1970, though it is
believed to be related to the ten-
sions among student groups on
campus, Reid said.
But this wasnt the only bomb
set off on campus that year.
On Dec. 11, a second bomb
destroyed part of Summerfield
Hall, injuring three students.
No group took responsibility for
the incident. No one was ever
charged for either bombing, Reid

violence on campus during

KU assistant instructor among frst selected for WWii draft
oCtober 29, 1940
At noon today in the nations
capital, Henry L. Stimson secretary
of war, drew the first draft registra-
tion number from a historic gold-
fish bowl and it was 158.
Listening to a radio in a labora-
tory in Snow Hall was Elmo D.
Hardy, assistant instructor in ento-
mology, who is teaching part time
at the University while working
on his Ph. D. degree. In his pocket
was registration card No. 158. Thus
Hardy became the first man eligible
to be called from Douglas County
for the first peacetime conscription
in the history of the country.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Hardy, who
live at 1323 Kentucky, were inter-
viewed on WREN at 1 oclock this
afternoon. Both said they could
hardly believe their senses when
they heard the announcement of
158. Hardy offered the opinions
that the selective service act was
a good thing for the country in
general, that he was ready to go if
necessary, and that he was doubt-
ful of his chances of exemption.
The Hardys have no children and
came here this year from Utah. Mr.
Hardy is 26 years old.
Mrs. Hardy, while surprised that
the first number drawn would be
the one held by her husband, said
that she had no urge to cry out
like Mrs. Harry S. Bell, who was
in the Interdepartmental auditori-
um in Washington D.C. when No.
158, the number held by her only
son, Harry Robert Bell, was called
out. Mrs. Hardy was listening to
a radio report of the drawing the
same time as her husband, so they
received the news simultaneously.
The bowl from which 156 num-
bers were called this morning con-
tained 8,500 blue capsules, each
containing a serial. The second
capsule was drawn by Frank Knox,
secretary of the navy. The capsules
then were turned over to the expert
handling crews, and they in turn
made a master list of the with-
drawn numbers. When this list is
complete and the drawing is over,
the machinery can start. An eight-
page questionnaire will be sent to
each drawee. He will fill this out
and return it within five days. From
this, it will be determined who is
available for the service and who
is not. After this questionnaire is
filled out, the conscientious objec-
tors may state their claims.
After the clerical work is fin-
ished, the local board will receive its
first call for men. The quota of men
from each locality is determined
by the percentage of available men

In the world of college sports,
there are several historic rival-
ries that go back several decades.
However, no rivalry quite compares
to the one between the University
of Kansas and the University of
This historic rivalry, which
began in 1891, came to an end
after the 2011-2012 sports season
when the University of Missouri
left the Big 12 Conference for the
Southeastern Conference (SEC).
According to Mike Reid, director of
public affairs for the KU Memorial
Unions, it was the second-oldest
rivalry in football.
This rivalry was different from
other rivalries because of feelings
going back to the Civil War, Reid
Indeed, the overall rivalry
between the states began before
Kansas became a state and the
University was ever built. Reid said
that Missourians would cross over
the state border to vote in Kansas
territories, upsetting Kansans.
In the sports world, the rivalry
was especially prevalent between
the football teams. Becky Schulte,
a University Archivist, said the
Kansas-Missouri football game was
a major event for the University,
particularly since the Missouri
game usually fell on Homecoming.
There were several activities
that the students did, especially
the big bonfire the night before the
game, Schulte said.
As to be expected, however,
there were high tensions between
the two teams. One particular con-
troversy stemmed from a football
game in 1960 and is highlighted
in the book Border War Football:
1891-2009 by Shawn Buchanan
Greene. The controversy centered
on the illegal recruiting of star
halfback Bert Coan, which caused
the Jayhawks to be excluded from
postseason games.
In fact, tensions escalated to the
point that the University student
body President Max Eberhart and
Missouri Students Association
President Roger Bridges wrote
out and signed a peace pact, the
text laid out measures to prevent
further escalation and was issued
in November 1961 editions of
the University Daily Kansan, the
Topeka Daily Capital, the Lawrence
Journal-World and the Kansas City
The rivalry continued in this
fashion for the next several
decades. Around 2002, the game
series between the two schools was
finally coined as the Border War
by University officials and com-
mercial sponsors for the game.
Jim Marchiony, the associate
athletics director, talked about
some other particularly memora-
ble events throughout the rivalry,
including last seasons match-ups
in mens basketball, the 2008 foot-
ball snowed-upon match-up.
This rivalry will remain in the
hearts of the Jayhawk loyal, even
with no more regular-season
match-ups to look forward to.

passes by before last years Border War at allen Fieldhouse.
Cots, makeshift stretchers and
bodies cover the floor of Allen
Fieldhouse. Only the occasional
cough or moan interrupts the
eerie silence of the building. The
people are wrapped in bandag-
es, but the fabric cant hide the
burns, blood and missing clumps
of hair evidence of a nuclear
This scene from the Cold War
era movie The Day After, was
shot in Allen Fieldhouse and
illustrated the effects of a nuclear
fallout in the city of Lawrence.
The movie aired nationally on
ABC in 1983, and the victims
were actually University students
acting as extras for the movie.
Freshman Nick Shaheed from
Lawrence, Kansas, watched the
film in eighth grade. My history
teacher showed it to us because
we were learning about the cold
war era, he said. I personally
think it was the best made for T.V.
movie ever. So it was kind of cool
that it was here at KU.
While Allen Fieldhouse is best
known for its basketball, the
venue used to be a multipur-
pose facility, featuring musicians,
comedians and politicians like
Bill Clinton, Robert F. Kennedy,
Bill Cosby, Cher, The Beach Boys
and Leon Russell.
And basketball wasnt the only
sport played in Allen Fieldhouse.
The floor used to used to be
removable, allowing for indoor
track meets. In The Day After,
the floor of Allen Fieldhouse isnt
actually wood. It was the surface
used for track running.
Associate professor at
Mississippi State University and
former interim project director of Mark Hersey said
one of the most significant events
held in Allen Fieldhouse, besides
basketball, could be track meets.
You could point, athletically,
to things like Jim Ryuns record
runs in indoor track there, he
Hersey was a child of the 80s,
and he watched The Day After
when he was a child. He said the
film tied KU into the culture of
the cold war.
It also drew a great deal of
attention to the heartland,
Lawrence particularly, he said.
History is local. Everything
takes place in a particular place in
a particular point of time. Which
is actually what gives a venue
like Allen Fieldhouse its power.
Wilt [Chamberlain] played here.
These people were here.
Though, Allen Fieldhouse used
to host a variety of entertainment
events and indoor track meets,
the venue now is almost exclu-
sively used for basketball.
Director of Public Affairs of
KU Memorial Unions Mike Reid
said this is because the character
of Allen Fieldhouse has changed.
It used to be more or less a
multi-purpose facility, he said.
Now it hosts a large museum
in the front of it. It cut down
some of the things you can do
in there. And also, we did have
indoor track meets and things
like that because the floor was
removable in the past, but thats
been changed.
Hersey said another reason for
this change is because of the rev-
enue basketball brings.
There are a lot of expecta-
tions, he said. It is big business.
Why risk damage? It plays a big
role in getting donations for the

Seventy years ago, it would
have been impossible for both
Jeff Withey and Elijah Johnson to
start on the same team.
We take it for granted now,
because basketball and America
have come a long way. But many
dont know that James Naismith
and KU alumnus John McClendon
helped begin breaking barriers of
prejudice and institutionalized
One of the most monumen-
tal moments in basketball his-
tory was kept a secret for over
50 years, a secret game coached
by McClendon, a student of
In 1944 white and black basket-
ball players played against each
other for the first time in small
gymnasium in North Carolina.
McClendon, who attended the
University in the 1930s, coached
a team from the all-black North
Carolina Central University, then
known as the North Carolina
College for Negroes, against an
all-white Duke intramural team.
McClendon, who died in 1999,
changed the pace of the game
a game he learned from James
Naismith, its inventor.
Naismith was McClendons
mentor while he went
to KU, and helped
him along his battles
with segregation. Mike
Reid, a historian at the
University, said Naismith
helped McClendon get
his physical education
Nai smi t h took
McClendon under his wing, Reid
said. McClendon, a Hiawatha
native, was urged to go to the
University by his father, who
wanted his son to work with
Naismith. When McClendon
attended the University he had
a tough time working around the
rules of segregation.
In those days, black students
were not allowed to do things
like swim in the pool on campus,
and if a group of them did, the
pool would have to be emptied
out and re-filled before white stu-
dents could use it again.
Naismith convinced KU to get
rid of rules like that, Reid said.
Naismith also helped get
McClendon a student teaching
job, which was extremely rare
for an African American
student back then.
At the time of the secret
game it was unheard-of
to have teams of different
races play either with or
against each other in any
sporting event. While
Naismith was athletic
director, The University of
Kansas was still segregated, with
an all-white basketball team.
The 1944 game had to be kept
a secret because it was a violation
of North Carolinas segregation
laws. Even some of the players on
the teams didnt know what was
happening until the day of the
game. However, no one found out
about the game. The only people
present were the players, coaches
and one referee. One reporter
is said to have known about the
game going on, but kept quiet for
the sake of McClendons career.
The teams met in a YMCA
gymnasium in Durham, N.C., on
a Sunday afternoon while most
people were still in church. The
NCCU Eagles won 88-44. Even
after the loss, the teams inte-
grated for a scrimmage, shirts
and skins.
Erica Dixon, the director of
campus recreation at NCCU, said
no one found out about the game
until much later.
It wasnt until the early 90s
when people found out about
what really happened, Dixon
said. A Duke student happened
to be sitting next to McClendon
on a plane, and McClendon just
told him everything.
According Mitlon Katzs book
Breaking Through, despite the
segregation laws, members of the
Duke and NCCU Y.M.C.A. chap-
ters had begun meeting to dis-
cuss racial issues. At one meeting,
George Parks, an Eagles player,
overheard a boast that the Duke
Medical School intramural bas-
ketball team was the best in the
state. Parks challenged the Duke
student to prove who had the best
team in town. To everyone but
McClendon, this idea was absurd.
The 28-year-old McClendon had
only lost one game all season but
was denied a postseason cham-
pionship game because the NIT
and NCAA tournaments did not
allow African Americans to par-
Since the game, both NCCU
and Duke have had events to
remember that day. In 2010
NCCU hosted the first Bull City
Showdown, which was like a reen-
actment of the secret game. In the
day-long tournament, mens and
womens teams from Duke and
NCCU played against each other.
At the end of the event, they
featured an All-Star game, which
integrated everyone, exactly like
the scrimmage that followed the
original secret game.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. In 1980,
when the U.S. hockey team defeated
the Soviets at Lake Placid, N.Y., in
the Winter Olympics, sports com-
mentator Al Michaels uttered his
now-famous question, Do you
believe in miracles?
The Jayhawks did. They defied
all logic, beat the odds and con-
quered the previously unstoppable
Okalahoma Sooners last night 83-79
in Kemper Arena and took the 1988
NCAA national championship, the
first national title for Kansas and the
Big Eight Conference since 1952.
But the situation did not look
good for the Jayhawks when they
fell behind five points with more
than 13 minutes left in the game.
The Jayhawks looked grim as they
huddled during their timeout, and
the Sooners did some preliminary
dancing, thinking the champion-
ship was all theirs.
The Sooners, though, overlooked
two things: substitution and experi-
ence. Oklahoma coach Billy Tubbs
substituted only 12 times the entire
game compared to Kansas 42. In
addition, forward Dave Singer, who
hit six of eight three-point shots in
the first half, faltered at the three-
point line and eventually gave up
long-range shooting and passed it
inside to center Stacey King.
The Sooners also thought that
their full-court press would carry
them through. It had intimidated
other teams, but not the Jayhawks,
who had seen it twice before and
were no longer afraid.
We know what they do in the
game, said Kansas forward Milt
Newton. With other teams, theyre
in shock with the press. But were
accustomed to that. We didnt think
we could get beat a third time.
This third time was for the national
The Sooners tried to speed up
the tempo as they had in the first
half, but several times the Jayhawks
deliberately held the ball at the
top of the circle to rest and throw
Oklahoma off its game.
Oklahoma called a timeout with
1:39 remaining. The score was
77-73, and Grace had just complet-
ed two free throws. After the tim-
eout, guard Terrence Mullins fouled
Kansas guard Clint Normore, and
Normore missed the front end of
his one and one.
Kansas coach Larry Brown sent
in guard Scooter Barry, one of the
teams top free throw shooters.
Sieger fouled Newton, who made
the front end of his one and one. He
missed the second shot.
With less than a minute in the
game, Grace hit a jump shot for a
78-75 score, and Oklahoma called
a time-out. With 41 seconds left,
guard Mookie Blaylock hit a jump
shot and made the score 78-77.
Tubbs called for another time-out.
Oklahoma applied pressure as the
Jayhawks passed the ball around the
perimeter. Blaylock fouled Barry,
but Barry com-
pleted only the
first of his free
throws with 16
seconds left in
the game.
Ok l a h o ma
called its last
timeout. On the
in-bounds pass,
Piper was stuck
and could not find anyone open. He
called a time-out, and on the sec-
ond try he passed it to Manning.
That was about as nervous as I
was in the game, Piper said. They
switched a coupled of guys on us. I
didnt have a clear pass, and I wasnt
going to take a chance. I told Danny
out of the huddle that the ball was
coming to him. The other guys
were so quick, we needed to use
Dannys size.
With five seconds left, Grant
fouled Manning. And Manning
sealed the victory once more com-
pleting both his free throws to make
the final score 83-79.
This feeling is great to be able
close out my career like this in
Kansas City, in front of people that
have supported me for four years,
Manning said. Its something well
deserved for them, but it wasnt
a gift. Some people said we got
lucky, but whats luck? Luck pres-
ents opportunity, and we took that
This is for all the people who
said it couldnt be done, that we
wouldnt make it. This is from the
national champions, the No. 1 team
in the country. How do you like us
When the final buzzer sounded,
the players rushed onto the center
of the court and became one tangled
mass, surrounded by cheerleaders,
security officers and cameramen
desperately trying to capture the
The crowd was screaming in
the stands, and Kansas students
who were lucky enough to get
tickets for the game were danc-
ing on the press tables that lined
the court. The Kansas basketball
band played Goin to Kansas City.
The CBS cameras were pushing
to get to Manning, who finished
with 31 points, 18
rebounds and was
voted the tourna-
ments most out-
standing player.

T-shirts. Guard
Kevin Pritchard
searched for his
parents and saw that they were still
in the stands waving. He demanded
that the security officers let his par-
ents on the floor, and together they
celebrated the victory.
Somewhere in the middle of the
mess was Brown, who has taken
two different schools to three dif-
ferent Final Four appearances in
the last seven years. Brown, at age
47, had succeeded in leading the
Jayhawks to his first national cham-
Just two months ago, Kansas was
12-8, and people wondered whether
the Jayhawks would receive a berth
in the NCAA tournament.
Last night they shook off the
skeptics, played the game of their
lives and sent Manning and fellow
senior forwards Piper and Archie
Marshall off with the greatest fare-
well present possible.
The stepladders were set up
under the baskets at each end,
and Marshall, as he did in Pontiac,
Mich., was the first to mount the
ladder and cut the net.
The crowd had its eyes fastened
on the Kansas team as each player
received his chance to cut the net.
The Sooners slinked off to their
dressing room, heads down. There
would be no victorious dancing on
the basketball rims this night.
Its a bitter defeat, because we
felt we could win it all, but we
didnt and we have to accept that,
said Tubbs.
The Sooners, playing the part
of the bad guys, with their red-on-
white home uniforms, already had
done their dancing during the pre-
game warmups. They exuded the
same cockiness that had been their
trademark all season, with their
index fingers pointed in the air.
The Jayhawks came out sol-
emn and underrated, but deter-
mined. They had the same spark
of revenge in their eyes as they did
against Kansas State in the Midwest
Regional at Pontiac and against
Duke in the National Semifinal two
nights ago in Kemper.
For his final collegiate appear-
ance, Marshall came out with
the team. He injured his knee in
December playing against St. Johns
and came out for the second time
after his injury, dressed in warmup
suit and uniform.
Fans in the second level hung
a banner that read, This one is
for 23. Marshall glanced around
the arena briefly before the game
started and saw the sign. He smiled
and waved. For the rest of the
night, when Kansas was down on
the scoreboard, the crowd would
break into chant, Archie...Archie.
It was a reminder that the Jayhawks
werent playing just for a national
The Sooners had come out
smiling, too. The tip-off went to
Oklahoma, and Blaylock hit a jump
shot for the first basket of the game.
As Piper stood on the baseline
to inbound the ball, King looked
around and grinned wickedly.
Manning hit his jump shot at the
other end of the court, Kind was
called for traveling as he headed the
other way, and when he faced Piper
this time for the inbounds pass, the
confident grin was replaced by a
look of frustration.
The teams played close, exchang-
ing baskets and three-point shots
all evening.
Kansas forward Milt Newton did
much of the rescue work, making
diving saves several times to keep
the ball in bounds for Kansas. More
importantly, when Sieger threat-
ened at three-point range, Newton
helped the Jayhawks recover at key
times with three-point shots of his
They had a great first half. You
couldnt shoot any better, Tubbs
said. They not only got inside but
also got the three-pointers. We
never really had firm control of the
game, but neither team could really
tuck it away.
The pace was still too fast for
Kansas. With 8:52 left in the first
half, Newton hit a 16-foot jump
shot, making the score 33-30,
but Brown started screaming on
the sidelines for the team to slow
The game stood at 50-50 at
half-time. By that time, the crowd
had realized the caliber of game it
was seeing, something Brown had
already recognized.
I looked at the refs a couple of
times, and they were shaking their
heads and grinning, Brown said.
It was a great game. Obviously it
had all the drama, it was a close ball
game, and we had some phenom-
enal individual performances.
Oklahoma had gone in and out
of its press after realizing that it had
no effect on Kansas. The Jayhawks
shot an incredible 71 percent from
the field in the first half and 63.6
percent overall while holding the
Sooners to 48.7 percent in the first
half and an even more dismal 35.5
percent in the second half.
In the first half, we ran pretty
well, but we knew we needed to
go to our own game plan, Newton
said. Coach said if we ran with
Oklahoma, we should try to make
them pay for it.

1200 Oread Avenue Lawrence, KS 66044 (785) 843-1200
The national war moratorium,
heralded for weeks as the larg-
est peaceful demonstration ever
to take place in the United States,
brought more than 2,500 Kansas
University students and faculty,
Lawrence residents and guests to
the Hill Wednesday for anti-war
demonstrations and speeches.
Reams of literature concerning
the Vietnam War were distributed
from tables placed around the cam-
Moratorium observers were
asked to sign two petitions one
to President Nixon, urging an
immediate end to the Vietnam
War, and the other denouncing two
Kansas congressmen, Rep. Larry
Winn, R-Leawood, and Rep. Keith
Sebelius, R-Norton, who signed
a letter to Nixon calling for an
immediate escalation of the war.
More than 150 students gathered
in front of Strong Hall to partici-
pate in a silent vigil.
The students stood quietly in
lines behind white crosses which
had been stuck in the ground in
memory of those killed in the war.
One student displayed a sign
which read, Rockchalk, Jaydove,
stop war, try love. Another held a
sign stating, Save lives, not face.
Across the street from the vigil,
at the proposed site of Wescoe Hall,
a microphone was left open for
anyone who wanted to speak.
Among those who did speak
was Robert Swan, 1968 Democratic
peace candidate for Congress from
In an address to about 350 peo-
ple, Swan challenged American
involvement in Vietnam and the
myths that have sustained con-
Two presidents and a silent
Congress committed us to
Vietnam, Swan said. Never has
a foreign policy been so haphazard
and so confused; never have we so
deceived ourselves.
The crowd murmured when
Swan charged President Nixon with
saying: To allow government pol-
icy to be made in the streets would
destroy democratic processes.
Swan said he doubted that those
present were trying to destroy
the ideals of democracy as Nixon
implied, and called the morato-
rium the greatest outpouring of
democracy in recent years.
Swan urged his audience to
again establish the internation-
al role of the United States as a
country of peace, not a country
of war, and asked for support in
building a stronger moratorium in
The Rev. Robert Shelton, acting
assistant professor of the School
of Religion, also spoke at Wescoe
Hall. Shelton told the group gath-
ered at the site that demonstrations
can make a significant impact on
national policy.
Students spending their first day
seriously considering the conflict
of Vietnam were experiencing a
rebirth, Shelton said. He added,
I want to wish those students a
happy birthday and many more.
In an earlier lecture at Smith
Hall, Shelton said that the differ-
ence between a just and unjust war
was no longer relevant in rational-
izing conflict in the world.
Man cannot talk about a just
war in a nuclear age, he said.
Don Baldwin, Wesley Foundation
director, spoke to the crowd gath-
ered at the proposed site of Wescoe
Hall, denouncing the war as illegal,
immoral, and unjust.
We have a chance to put an end
to war this war, every war, he
said, and nothing must deter us.
Another speaker at the open
microphone, Bill Hansen, a Kansas
City law student, praised the gath-
ering for turning on to them-
Some KU faculty members
scheduled open classes and teach-
ins to observe the moratorium.
In Lindley Hall, more than 250
people attended an open class on
the political geography of Vietnam,
presented by Robert E. Nunley,
associate professor of geography.
The class lasted two hours
twice as long as planned.
Four faculty members conduct-
ed a teach-in in Hoch Auditorium.
Lawrence Velvel, associate professor
of law; Harry G. Shaffer, professor
of economics; Arthur Katz, dean of
the School of Social Welfare; and
John C. Wright, associate professor
of human development, discussed
the Vietnam War and the issues
which the war presents to their
respective disciplines.
Shaffer drew a standing ovation
from the crowd of more than 2,500
when he said, You (young men)
shall have to die, and be maimed
and become killers, because men in
Washington dont have the guts to
admit they have been wrong.
Wright told the assembly that
peace workers must not abandon
the society and its institutions,
even though they may seem to be
impervious to change.
Be abrasive, be demanding, be
a thorn in societys flesh, he said.
Use infinite tact, and dont resort
to easy arrogance.
Two more faculty members
participated in a debate before an
audience of more than 1,000 in the
Kansas Union Ballroom. Robert A.
Burton, assistant professor of ori-
ental languages and literatures, and
Carl Lande, associate professor of
political science, argued the effects
of a Communist takeover in South
Chancellor E. Laurence
Chalmers did not accept an offer
by 14 members of the KU faculty
to make a gift to the University of
a days salary.
The offer was not accepted by
the Chancellor for two reasons.
He stated that the members of
the faculty and administration
were on a contractual basis for the
academic year, therefore, a leave
of absence is the only way that the
contract may be terminated for a
period of time.
Since the moratorium was not
designed to curtail the semester
work, Chancellor Chalmers said
that the faculty had earned their sal-
aries whether or not they resched-
uled their Wednesday classes.
At the University of Kansas
Medical Center, the moratorium
was observed with a television
teach-in and a silent vigil.
Between noon and 3 p.m., the
teach-in was broadcast from Wahl
Hall-East Auditorim to Bailey Hall
on the KU campus.
At 3 p.m., more than 50
social workers, students, faculty
members and sympathizers lis-
tened to a memorial service and
held a half-hour silent vigil.
The largest and perhaps the most
impressive of the anti-war dem-

Kansas was once a leader in the
forced sterilization of the mentally
disabled, and the University supported
it from the beginning.
The last known case of the prac-
tice in Kansas occurred 50 years ago,
according to a database created by Lutz
Kaelber, associate professor of sociol-
ogy at the University of Vermont.
At least 2,851 people were castrat-
ed or otherwise sterilized in Kansas
hospitals between 1913 and 1961.
Compulsory sterilization gradually
fell out of favor and the Kansas legis-
lature repealed the law authorizing it
in 1965.
The Kansas State Asylum for the
Education of Idiotic and Imbecile
Youth opened in North College Hall
on the University campus Sept. 1,
1881. Ten-year-old Belle Abott of
Johnson County entered the asylum
as its first student six days later.
The asylum was originally con-
ceived as a boarding school with goals
of education and rehabilitation. Over
the years, the schools function turned
to employing students in farm labor or
simply institutionalizing them, accord-
ing to a 1965 issue of the Bulletin of
the History of Medicine.
Within six years, the asylum had
moved to Winfield, where superin-
tendent F. Hoyt Pilcher performed 58
castrations and 150 sterilizations of
patients. According to the database,
many of those people were mental-
ly ill rather than mentally disabled.
Abott died at the Winfield hospital
at age 29.
The asylums move to Winfield was
viewed at the time as a loss by the
University. Lawrence lost the asylum
in a political battle with representa-
tives from elsewhere in the state.
It was a coup to get one of these
institutions in your town, Michael
Wehmeyer, a professor in special
education, said. It was one of those
politically desirable things: it would
mean jobs, pres-
tige. Back then, it
wasnt quackery, it
was cutting edge,
like bioscience is
With 30,000
sterilizations across
the country in
30 states, Kansas
ranked sixth
nationally. The Kansas Legislature
passed a law in 1913 allowing for
the sterilization of habitual crimi-
nals, idiots, epileptics, imbeciles, and
insane. These procedures were widely
accepted at the time and promoted
through the philosophy of eugenics,
which teaches that societies can be
improved by selective breeding. The
law was amended in 1917 to remove
courts from the process and make it
easier for health boards to have people
sterilized. Even so, widespread uncer-
tainty about the law kept the number
of sterilizations in the dozens until the
Supreme Court ruling in Buck v. Bell
clearly approved of it.
Then youve got wholesale steril-
izations, Wehmeyer said. Instead of
dozens of sterilizations each year in
Kansas, there were hundreds. Justice
Oliver Wendell Holmes views reflect-
ed those of many people considered,
then and now, to be politically pro-
Holmes wrote the opinion of the
It is better for all the world if,
instead of waiting to execute degener-
ate offspring for crime or to let them
starve for their imbecility, society
can prevent those who are manifestly
unfit from continu-
ing their kind, he
wrote. Three gen-
erations of imbeciles
are enough.
Thats the
funny part of this,
Wehmeyer said.
What seems like
clean-cut violations
of basic human
rights was part of a progressive agenda.
It made for some strange bedfellows.
In the 1920s, Kansas families com-
peted in eugenics-inspired fitness con-
tests at state fairs. Wehmeyer displayed
in his office a prize medal from a
Fitter Families Contest, presented by
the American Eugenics Society.
Yea, I have a goodly heritage, the
medal read in part.
Wehmeyer said he bought the
medal on Ebay. The image of the
medal also appears in The Child, a
book written by Florence Sherbon, a
University professor of home econom-
ics and a Fitter Families proponent.
Wehmeyer said that the eugenics
movement was driven by a complex
intersection of movements. Psychology
and the science of genetics were emerg-
ing together, and the industrial revolu-
tion inspired people to believe that sci-
ence could solve all of their problems.
The progressive movement, which
was powerful in Kansas, encouraged
people to work for the improvement
of society. Some progressives, such
as Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist
William Allen White, for whom the
University School of Journalism was
named, fought against the eugenics
movement, but its popularity carried
it through the 1940s.
The eugenics movement fell out of
favor and the number of sterilizations
performed each year dropped drasti-
cally following World War II. This
was partly because the philosophy of
eugenics was similar to the rheto-
ric associated with the Holocaust,
Wehmeyer said. Courts now consid-
er forced sterilization to be clearly
Wehmeyer said pointing the finger
at a few policy makers and physicians
of the past would be the easy thing
to do.
There was widespread adoption
and acceptance of eugenics, he said.
In the 1950s, it was hard to find any-
one who wasnt.
Wehmeyer said it was hard to
imagine such things happening
again. Attitudes about disability have
changed and states have added legal
protections for disabled people. But he
doesnt discount the danger of abuse
whenever some people are identified
as defective.
When you think of people as dif-
ferent, you run a risk, he said.

Eugenics loses popularity following WWII
From GeNeraL PsyChoLoGy
The good and the bad Kallikaks demonstrate the infuence of heredity.
The nationally recognized uni-
versity radio station, 90.7 KJHK,
wasnt always the station we know
KJHK was organized through
the journalism school in 1952 and
was known as KDGU. It started
out as just a carrier current, which
was a medium-frequency AM sig-
nal broadcast to a very small area.
The name changed to KUOK in
1956, and featured news, sports
programs and entertainment.
When FM caught on nationally
in the 1970s, the station saw a
potential for a larger audience, and
became KJHK in 1975. In the 80s,
the station saw the opportunity
to play independent music rather
than compete with local stations
for mainstream media.
KJHK today is no longer affili-
ated with any one school at the
University of Kansas, and is com-
pletely student-run. Close to 200
student volunteers keep it running
24 hours a day and seven days
a week during the school year.
The station made the Princeton
Reviews list of Top 20 College
Radio Stations for the last two
years, and it was named num-
ber two on the 2011 Washington
Post list of 10 Great Student-Run
College Radio Stations.
Historically speaking, beyond
the awards KJHK has seen across
all of its years, the most world-
changing success that KJHK has
to its credit is that in December
1994, it was one of the first radio
stations in the nation to stream
its content on the internet via a
stable online stream, said General
Station Manager Tom Johnson,
who is managing KJHK for his
seventh year.
The online component of KJHK
was created to broaden their audi-
ence, and is proving successful. The
station has a blog-format website
featuring online streaming capabil-
ities, in-studio performance videos
and new rotation album reviews.
General staff and DJ applications
are on the website every semester,
and are open to all students.
That helps diversify our sound,
the fact that anyone can be a DJ,
Station Manager Kaitlin Brennan
said. Its a floodgate of majors and
whoever wants to be here. Thats
what makes KJHK so creative.
Freshman Adam Yoerg from
Hudson, Wis., likes to listen to
the standard rotation while doing
homework. They play different
music you dont usually hear on
other stations, and they play newer
stuff, Yoerg said.
The station nearly lost its FM
license in 2003 when operat-
ing costs became unaffordable.
The next year, however, the KU
Memorial Unions stepped forward
to help remodel KJHKs funding
and allowed the station to move
from its previous location in Sudler
Annex to its new studio in the
Kansas Union in 2010.
The real success of the station
is that any KU student, no matter
their major or interests, can join
KJHK, learn what theyd like to
learn about any or all particular
areas of broadcasting, and leave
here with an experience they never
forget, Johnson said.
This semester holds program-
ming in local music, world music,
sports, news, jazz, hip-hop, indie,
essentially a bit of everything. The
programming changes by semester
based on student DJs, but it still
caters to the desire for something
