University goes keyless


Jayhawker Towers use card-swipers
By Louis Mora

The days of lock and key are finished at the Jayhawker Towers. Residents in towers B, C and D now make their way through the main entrances of the buildings by swiping their KUIDs through an electronic lock system. By the end of the month, tower A also will use the system. Student housing officials made the move to save money on constantly making new keys for the complex and to provide

a more efficient and simpler system for staff and added security for tower residents. This is the first lock card system used 24 hours a day on exterior doors at a University living environment. While the new system will save the department money in the long run, its more important to provide extra security, said Vince Avila, associate director for housing shop maintenance. I think its going to improve security. You cant be too safe, he said. When residents checked into the towers their KUID was

scanned and programmed to allow them access to only one of the four towers. Ken Stoner, director of student housing, said the system made replacing a lost key much easier for the staff. When students lost their keys in the past, the staff would rekey the entire building and provide the towers with a new main entrance key. A lost KUID is electronically eliminated from the system, rendering it useless until another card is issued. The move will also save the department money. The towers required re-keying every two years costing the department $350 to create a key for all 800 residents. Once tower A is

equipped, the system will cost $8,800 for 11 locks. Ashok Daruru, Sau Paulo, Brazil, senior, said the system made it easier for residents to go in and out. Its actually more convenient than carrying the keys. Ill just carry my wallet with the card in it, he said. While the system has been just put in place, the impact of the lock system is yet to be seen, said Matt Beckendorf, Jayhawker Towers complex director. While only the first at this campus, other Midwestern universities, such as the University of Nebraska and Iowa State University, have used this system for years. At Iowa State, students at se-

This is the first year for the towers to switch from the keypad entry to requiring tenants to use KUIDs. lected housing have had to use a swipe card system for exterior doors since 1998 and newly rennovated halls have moved toward the system, said Ginny Arthur, associate director for residence life. Arthur said using a swipe card system benefits everyone. I think its a really good way to go, she said. Its so individualized. Edited by Alison Peterson

Our motto is, We can open anything but your mind, he said, grinning from behind his ruddy mustache. Old school profession The capacious shop is lined wall to wall with locks and lock parts. Tiny screws in boxes and big door handles fill the room. On one end, keys to each room of every academic building on the Lawrence campus hang in lockers. Nearly 20,000 keys dangle there. As Falkenstien moves through the shop, he passes a box full of old keypad locks, the kind meant to replace keys. Theyve taken a mechanical machine and electrified it, he says. Its doubled our trouble in troubleshooting. Falkenstien estimates that there are more than 100 combo locks on campus. But they arent in vogue anymore. Now, its card-scanning locks that are steadily replacing keys.

What new plans or ideas are in the works for the department?

mosborne@kansan.com
Kansas schools are split in their policy toward the students displaced by Hurricane Katrina. Private universities, such as Washburn and Rockhurst, are waiving or delaying tuition payments entirely, while the public institutions, such as the University of Kansas and Kansas State University are offering to waive late fees and work with students for possible financial aid. University officials said so far 19 displaced students have been admitted, 15 of those being from Kansas. Marlesa Roney, vice provost for student success, attributed the discrepancies to legal constraints set forth by the Kansas Board of Regents. From a legal perspective, we cant reduce tuition, Roney said. The Board approves a fee structure that has been approved already. At the moment, all the University can do is work with the federal government on loans and scholarships because there is no reliable method of contacting the students former colleges, Roney said. Its a fairly complex situation and we are very limited on what we can do immediately, Roney said. But well know more by the end of the week hopefully. Public colleges and universities in Nebraska and Oklahoma have offered to reduce or eliminate tuition for displaced students altogether. Joan Sanmann, admissions staff

meetings with other university administrators and everything in between.

Why is it important to have a Student Success department?


MR: Its important because we provide the services and programs that enable students to earn their degrees, develop leadership skills and become responsible and capable adults.

MR: All 19 departments are working on strategic planning for the future, and as an overall organization, our top goals are to focus on programs and services that improve first-year retention rates, on f o u r- y e a r graduation rates and overall enhance KU students ability to be successful.

sity has a five year masters program for architecture students. If I want Tulane on my diploma, I cant afford to get behind in architecture classes, Brush said. Brush met with the dean of the architecture school, John Gaunt, and then associate dean, Michael Swann who she said were both extremely helpful and accommodating. Even though many of the studio classes were already full, Gaunt and Swan ensured Brush that the enrollment process would be as smooth as possible. They almost transferred my whole semester from Tulane, Brush said. The professors looked up what classes I would be taking and went by Tulanes program, and not theirs, which is a little different. But the downside to Brush coming to the University is having to pay double tuition. Tu-

lanes dean of architecture, Reed Kroloff, in a letter posted Sept. 6, on www.tulaneschoolofarchitecture.com said, Pay your tuition to Tulane, if you havent already, and all tuition will be waived at the host school. You may still have to pay some student fees, and you will be responsible for all your living expenses, as you would have been in New Orleans. According to www.lunchmoney.com, a Web site that tracks universities tuition, a years worth of tuition and room and board at Tulane is $40,000. On top of paying Tulane, Brush must also pay out-of-state tuition to the University. Its not like Im asking for a hand-out, Brush said. My parents can afford to send me to college, but paying for it twice is hard. Im not living out of a box but at the same time it does put a strain on everything. The TSA Web site encouraged students to look elsewhere for the semester, and in regards to professional schools it said students should try to find an equivalent program. Brushs hope is that she will be reimbursed or compensated by Tulane, eventually. Tulane president Scott Cowen said in an address to students posted on www.tulane.edu, on Sept. 3, that students could be sure that Tulane would implement the plan in a manner that was fair and equitable as it regarded the tuition that students had paid or must pay to the institution they attend this fall.

TOPEKA State officials are preparing for an estimated 4,000 evacuees from Hurricane Katrina to arrive in the coming days, far fewer than originally rumored. Joy Moser, spokeswoman for the Kansas Adjutant Generals Department, which includes the National Guard and emergency management, said yesterday that fewer than 1,000 people were already in Kansas. We might be able to handle more, Moser said. We want to make sure we can handle what they give us. They dont want to stress everybody. Texas is stressed. Gov. Kathleen Sebelius was

asked by Texas officials to take in people whom they couldnt handle, said Nicole Corcoran, the governors spokeswoman. Sebelius signed a letter yesterday asking for federal funds to assist Kansas in caring for evacuees. Supplementary federal assistance is necessary to save lives, protect property, public health and safety and to lessen the overall impact of this effort on the evacuees and the state of Kansas, Sebelius said. Communities across Kansas were beginning to see people trickle in from the storm, with the bulk of evacuees still to come. Still waiting.

New faculty, courses ahead


Students tuition money funds new faculty positions
By GaBy Souza

gsouza@kansan.com
Kansan staff writer

The University of Kansas plans to create 42 new faculty positions for the fall of 2006. The new faculty members will be hired as part of the five-year Tuition Enhancement Plan, which raised students tuition for University-wide improvements during a five-year period. The plan, in its fourth year, has already funded the hire of 58 faculty members. As soon as the 42 remaining positions are filled, the number of faculty members hired under the Tuition Enhancement Plan will total 100. It gives us the opportunity to create more offerings of things we werent able to before, said Lindy Eakin, vice provost of administration and finance. Hiring the new faculty members would allow the University to grow in new directions and add new classes or programs without making budget cuts, Eakin said. The University will focus on hiring professors in life

sciences and globalization. One of the new fields the University hopes to include is bioinformatics, which is the combination of biology, chemistry and engineering. It gives the faculty an overall boost since the faculty will have more colleagues to collaborate with, Eakin said. Carla Hines, Shawnee senior, said she was not sure if an increase in the number of professors would help or hurt the University. The engineering student said she thought a larger number of professors could lead to conflicts in viewpoints and a less straightforward approach to what was being taught. The School of Engineering is searching for seven new faculty members; it already filled 10 new positions in the past two years. At least we wont have to wait every other semester to take a class, Hines said. Jesse Burns, St. Louis senior, was not happy that tuition had risen so greatly since he was a freshman. But he thought it was good that new professors were

being hired so that class sizes would be smaller; it justified some of the raise in tuition, he said. Eakin said that decreasing class size was not one of the main goals of hiring the new faculty members, but it could be an end result. Robert Weaver, associate dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, said the new faculty members could increase the rank of the University because there was a correlation between faculty size and a universitys

national ranking. Schools that rank higher than the University usually have a larger faculty. Increasing the size of the faculty will help to bridge that gap, Weaver said. Some faculty search committees have been formed, but none have started hiring as of yet, Weaver said. Few professors would be hired before the end of the fall semester; offers are typically made to potential professors during the spring semester. Edited by Becca Evanhoe

Students arrested for impersonation


Three KU students robbed a 20-year-old KU student about 12:45 a.m. Sept. 3 near a swimming pool at 1605 Tennessee St. James Scully, Chicago senior, was swimming in the pool when

three men who said they were undercover Lawrence police officers told him to get out of the pool, Sgt. Dan Ward of the Lawrence Police Department said. Scully said he knew the suspects were not police officers. The suspects placed him against a wall, removed his wallet and planted a bag of marijuana on him, Ward said. The suspects then told the victim that possession of the marijuana was a $450 fine and told him to drive to an ATM to withdraw the money, Ward said. I thought they would take me to the ATM, take my

money, then beat the shit out of me, Scully said. Then the police came and saved me. A resident who was watching the incident called the police. Police apprehended a suspect at the scene and later two other suspects who fled the scene, Ward said. The suspects include Ryan M. Cunningham, 19, Jason D. Warble, 20, and Michael Zotti, 23, all KU students, Ward said. They were arrested for criminal impersonation of an officer, burglary and obstruction.

Bush pays respects to chief


speak, along with retiring Justice Sandra Day OConnor and Rehnquist family members. Bush initially nominated Roberts, a federal appellate judge, to replace OConnor, who announced in July that she would step down. The president said Monday that he would nominate Roberts to be the nations 17th chief justice instead and that the list of possible nominees for OConnors seat was now wide open. Flags, including the one above the court, were at half-staff in honor of Rehnquist, a President Nixon appointee who served on the court for 33 years and was elevated to chief justice in 1986 by President Reagan. In an acknowledgment of the period of mourning, Roberts confirmation hearings, which had been scheduled to begin Tuesday in the Senate, were delayed until next Monday. Bush and Senate Republicans are pushing to confirm Roberts before the new court session that begins Oct. 3. Democrats cautioned against a rush to judgment now that Roberts is a candidate for chief justice and at age 50, could shape the court for decades. it needs Falkenstien to make keys. Not to say that key-making technology hasnt changed. It just hasnt changed much. The non-pressurized machine Falkenstien learned on still sits in the shop. On that machine, he had to manually pull a rod to cut each groove into the key. Six pulls a key, 50 to 75 keys a day thats a lot of work. I got so sick of cutting keys, I thought I was going to go insane, he said. Here I am 20 years later and Im still doing it. And Im still going insane. I would hope all senators, Republicans and Democrats, would ask very substantive questions because this is, after all, a lifetime position, said Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee. In a simple morning ceremony, six justices, along with former clerks and court staff lined the steps outside the court, awaiting the arrival of the hearse bearing Rehnquists casket. Seven men and one woman most of them former Rehnquist clerks carried the casket past the line that included a crying OConnor. In the Great Hall, Rehnquists casket was placed on the Lincoln Catafalque, the structure on which President Lincolns coffin rested in the Rotunda of the Capitol a century and a half earlier. Two sprays of flowers and the portrait were on display. At the east end of the hall were the doors leading to the court chamber, a reminder of Rehnquists years of service. The Rev. George Evans Jr., the Rehnquist family pastor at the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in Virginia, read Unlocking the secret He removes a blank key from a box, places it in the pressurized machine, pulls a lever and adjusts the machine before every cut to make the key fit a specific lock. Once the key is cut, Falkenstien moves to his right and turns on an electric wire brush that smooths out the keys edges. Fittingly, John Mellencamp is roaring over the radio: Aint that America, land of the free! Falkenstien picks up a hammer and a steel stamp and stamps the key code and building number onto it. from Psalms and led the Lords Prayer. There were audible sobs from the family. Rehnquists personal employees were the first to make a circle around the coffin. A stream of other court workers followed. Absent were Justices Anthony M. Kennedy and David Souter. After the brief ceremony, a long line of people formed outside the court and people began walking inside past the coffin. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Rep. James Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., were among those who paused before the casket. Among the first was Sarah Chusid, 24, an intern at Mobilizing Americas Youth, a private organization that seeks to increase the involvement of young people across the political spectrum. Although she considers herself a liberal, Chusid said she respected the influential role that Rehnquist played on the court for more than three decades. This is a pivotal time in the courts history; I had to come down and bear witness to this event, she said. Thats it, he says. A few minutes later, a young woman enters the shop. Shes lost her key. No problem, he says, and he makes her a new one. He attaches a key ring so she wont misplace it this time. Just helping out. Its quite an operation we have out here, he says of the University. Its like its own little community, its own little world, almost its own economy. He shrugs. Its kind of a cool place to work. Edited by Katie Lohrenz

14 great lms spread over two evenings!

WASHINGTON Teary-eyed Supreme Court justices, a somber President Bush and one-time clerk John Roberts led a long line of Americans paying their last respects to William H. Rehnquist, the chief justice whose conservatism helped drive the high court toward the right. Washington protocol underscored a changing of the guard yesterday. Roberts, the former Rehnquist clerk named to succeed his old boss, was among the pallbearers carrying the flagdraped casket up the courts long steps and into the Great Hall. Rehnquist died Saturday at 80 after battling thyroid cancer. Bush, his head bowed, and first lady Laura Bush spent about a minute standing near the casket and a short time looking at the portrait of Rehnquist on a stand nearby. Justice Antonin Scalia escorted the couple. Funeral services will be at 2 p.m. today at St. Matthews Cathedral in Washington, open to friends and family. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney plan to attend, and Bush is to

WICHITA Spirit Aerosystems Inc. told its 8,600 employees in Kansas and Oklahoma yesterday it was shortening their workweek by no more than two days during the machinists strike and subsequent work stoppage at the Boeing Co. Members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers walked off the job at Boeing production plants near Seattle, Portland, Ore., and Wichita on Friday. The union represents 18,400 people at the three facilities, including 960 in Wichita where Boeing has kept its military operations. Few watched strike developments with as much interest as Spirit Aerosystems, the company formed after its parent, Onex Corp., bought Boeings commercial aircraft operations in Wichita as well as Tulsa and McAlester in Oklahoma. About 8,600 people now work at Spirits three plants, including 7,500 in Wichita. Boeing has so far remained Spirits sole customer, said Spirit spokesman Fred Solis, adding that the strike underscores the need for Spirit to expand its customer base. In a letter to employees, Spirit CEO Jeff Turner said yesterday the decision was based on several immediate priorities. We plan, to the best of our ability, to minimize the impact on you of necessary business actions taken to preserve cash resources, ensure the long-term health of our young company, and be ready to support Boeings production requirements when the work stoppage is over,

Turner wrote. Turner told workers that none of them will be asked to shorten their workweek by more than two days. The reduced weeks will begin as soon as possible. Some critical areas at the plant will not be affected, the letter said. Those include programs focused on future development and those in pursuit of new business. To minimize the personal impact, the company has continued its health and group benefits and given workers various options. Employees are allowed to use their vacation balance or earned time off until it is exhausted for their two days off per week. The last strike by Boeing machinists was a 69-day walkout in 1995. Allen Oakleaf, owner and CEO of Excel Manufacturing, remembers how nervous he was then when Boeing machinists went on strike. At that time Boeing orders accounted for 70 to 80 percent of his business, sparking a work slowdown and work stoppage at Excel. It hurt us, he said. Today, we are more diversified. We are so doggone busy now, if there was an impact it would allow us to do more work for someone else. Excel Manufacturing, which employs 130 people in Wichita, produces structural components like ribs and fittings for Boeings military and commercial aircraft operations. In our case, the impact is not as severe as some _ only because the amount of business we do with Boeing as a percentage of our business is fairly low, Oakleaf said.

California bill OKs same-sex marriages


By Steve Lawrence
The AssociATed Press

Flocking to Farmers Market

SACRAMENTO, Calif. The California Legislature yesterday became the first legislative body in the country to approve samesex marriages, as gay-rights advocates overcame two earlier defeats in the Assembly. The 41-35 vote sends the bill to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. The bills supporters compared the legislation to earlier civil rights campaigns, including efforts to eradicate slavery and give women the right to vote. Do what we know is in our hearts, said the bills sponsor,

San Francisco Democrat Mark Leno. Make sure all California families will have the same protection under the law. Lenos bill had failed in the Assembly by four votes in June, but he was confident he could get it through on a second try after the Senate approved a same-sex marriage bill last week. Democratic Assemblyman Paul Koretz called bans on gay marriage the last frontier of bigotry and discrimination, and its time we put an end to it. Assemblyman Tom Umberg, a Democrat who abstained when another gay marriage bill fell four votes short in June, said he

was concerned about what his three children would think of him if he didnt join those who sought to take a leadership role in terms of tolerance, equality and fairness. But opponents repeatedly cited the publics vote five years ago to approve Proposition 22, an initiative put on the ballot by gay marriage opponents to keep California from recognizing same-sex marriages performed in other states or countries. History will record that you betrayed your constituents and their moral and ethical values, said Republican Assemblyman Jay La Suer.

New storm threatens Florida


By JiLL Barton
The AssociATed Press

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. About 120 miles of Floridas Atlantic coast were under a tropical storm warning yesterday as a new system formed just offshore and threatened to dump up to 15 inches of rain in parts of the state. The tropical depression could strengthen into Tropical Storm Ophelia by today, which prompted the warning from north of Jupiter to Titusville, according to the National Hurricane Center. It was expected to bring tropical storm conditions winds of at least 39 mph to the state by this morning. The primary concern is very heavy rains, hurricane specialist Richard Pasch said. Five to 10 inches were expected over the next few days, with some isolated areas possibly getting

15 inches. The rain was expected to hit areas affected by last years Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne. Much of the region has recovered, but some homes remain covered in tarps as owners await new roofs. Emergency management officials in St. Lucie and Indian River counties said they were monitoring the depression for developments but were not taking any protective action. At 8 p.m., the depression had top sustained winds of about 30 mph and was centered about 165 miles southeast of Cape Canaveral. It was drifting northward with slow northwest movement expected later yesterday. Two other storms were out in the open ocean yesterday as the busy hurricane season continued. Tropical Storm Nate was expected to strengthen south of Bermuda, while Hurricane Maria weakened on its way to the

colder waters of the north Atlantic. At 5 p.m., Nate, the 14th named storm of the season, was centered about 275 miles southsouthwest of Bermuda with top sustained winds near 60 mph. Forecasters said it could reach hurricane strength, with winds of at least 74 mph, by today. It wasnt moving, though it was expected to eventually make a turn to the northeast over the next 24 hours, forecasters said. Perhaps by the end of the work week it could be posing a threat to Bermuda, but not the U.S., hurricane specialist Stacy Stewart said. Maria peaked late Monday as a Category 3 hurricane with top wind speeds at 115 mph. By 5 p.m. yesterday, it was centered about 575 miles east-northeast of Bermuda, forecasters said. Maria is the fifth hurricane of the Atlantic hurricane season.

Radio regurgitates routine rhapsodies


This semester marks the third semester Ive been a DJ at KJHK 90.7, and Ive really enjoyed spinning tunes at the station. Recently, I even had the privilege to meet a fan: my friends dad, who listens to our station online all the way from England. As we discussed the station and my experience there, he asked if my future career plans included becoming a radio DJ. I told him no without much hesitation and explained that, as much as I love being a disc jockey, Ive found that most radio stations dont like to experiment with their formats. Call me a music snob all you want, but Id rather work on the marketing team at Abercrombie and Fitch than for a radio station that plays it safe and sticks to a mainstream format. One of the major problems with this region is that you can hardly differentiate between the commercial FM stations here

LAURA WATKINS
opinion@kansan.com

when surng through the channels. 93.3 and 95.7 are basically the same station play the Top 40 music that guarantees you money, no matter how horrible it sounds. 96.5 The Buzz is similar to those stations but with the hip-hop music removed, giving it that Im so totally punked out for corporations sound. 97.3 is almost the same as the Buzz but with some more mellow, yet mainstream, alternative rock. In fact, its not uncommon for me to ip the dial only to nd the same horrid Green Day song playing on several different stations at once. Ive got to be honest. Some of my animosity toward ra-

dio has to do with something I experienced in high school. I carefully planned to release this article around the anniversary of a rather tragic date in radio history. I remember the day after Labor Day weekend in 1999 just as if it were yesterday. As I drove with an acquaintance to school, she turned on 105.9 The Lazer, a station I loved because of its focus on more alternative rock and especially for their promotion of local music. But they were playing music from the new Madonna album. I was pissed. Why the hell would a perfectly good alternative rock station that spent its time preaching the ways of alternative, modern rock and local music to the masses turn to Top 40 mainstream format? The answer is money. Im fully aware that 105.9 changed because it thought there would be a bigger listening audience to reach with pop music. I know

how money works. No matter how much I dislike it, I understand that money is typically the determining factor when most people decide how to react to an opportunity. But that doesnt mean its not complete bullshit. When you own six or seven stations in one area, cant you take a risk and play something you cant hear on MTV? There are a ton of people in our area who cant afford or dont have access to CD and MP3 players but who want to hear something different on the radio. What about them? In a city with a metropolitan population of more than 2 million, why is there only one hiphop station in town? Why is it necessary to have nine country stations, yet there isnt a commercial FM station playing any type of world music? What about the people who want to hear electronic, classical, under-

ground hip-hop or jam bands? And what about the people who just want to have an opportunity to discover a new type of music? The ve corporations Entercom, Viking, CBS/Innity, Cumulus and Susquehanna that dominate FM commercial radio in the Kansas City area need to consider the audience members they arent satisfying with their country, adult contemporary and Top 40 stations. Greed shouldnt be the only thing affecting radio format; these corporations need to quit playing it safe and begin targeting the audience members with different music preferences. Not everyone wants to listen to the Britney Spears/Kelly Clarkson/Simple Plan songs they can access anywhere. Give

the people something they can listen to and enjoy! P.S. Willie Nelson, I really do love you, but I am still really pissed about your participation in Jessica Simpsons joke of a remake of a perfectly wonderful Nancy Sinatra song. Watkins is a Lenexa senior in journalism. She is a DJ and Live Events director for KJHK 90.7.

Goettings goett it all wrong


Joshua Goettings August 25th editorial mischaracterizes the protest. He states: this protestis an attempt by some to impose societal ideas on the military at the expense of military effectiveness. This protest did not seek to impose ideals on the military; it asked that the administration enforce its own nondiscrimination policy and deny the military the right to recruit on campus. Mr. Goetting cites the US military as a color blind segment of society.Promotion opportunities do not make the military color-blind. In a 1997 congressionally-mandated survey, 75 percent of minorities in the military said that they have experienced racially offensive behavior, and less than half expressed condence that complaints of discrimination are thoroughly investigated. Mr. Goetting worries that allowing gays in the military would damage effectiveness. Throughout its history, the U.S. militarys effectiveness has not been used for justice or liberty, but for the protection of U.S. business and political interests. This history includes the loss of millions of innocent lives. In Iraq, the militarys effective actions include indiscriminate bombing, the near-leveling of cities and torture. Research published in the medical journal The Lancet has estimated 100,000 Iraqi civilian deaths. This campaign seeks to address recruiters discriminatory policies and challenge the United States occupation of Iraq. Lawrence Counter Recruitment

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Editorial board high on self


The August 30 editorial, New law provokes toke, levies the charge of moral error against proponents of a city ordinance that would change the way rst-time marijuana offenders are handled by both the Police Department and the justice system. As I see it, the ordinance exists largely outside the moral realm. This ordinance is about saving law enforcement and the courts and, thusly, the taxpayers (e.g. students, residents, citizens, all of us), money. Simultaneously, the law enforcement community will be able to focus limited resources on investigating and prosecuting more serious crimes that take place in our fair town such as rape, domestic violence, and theft to name a few. Despite all of the erroneous charges made in the August 30 editorial, which range from increased drug use to a full blown, pot-fueled, population boom, the laws prohibiting the sale, use, and possession of marijuana will remain unchanged and fully enforced. The ordinance will not result in the legalization of marijuana, nor its decriminalization for that matter. The argument made in the editorial piece is faulty and completely misses the point of the ordinance, to save us (the taxpayers) money and to potentially save students academic lives. Lets start with the plea for understanding for those students who need nancial aid who didnt get caught with pot. According to the editorial, the ordinance would make it possible for a student without a drug conviction to get passed up for student loans by a student with a drug conviction. This is a half truth at best. The student with the conviction would be more eligible for the loan if and only if his/her nancial need was greater than that of the conviction-free student. I dont think that there exists a single case in which someone with genuine nancial need loses out on federal aid dollars because those funds were given to some red-eyed dope end that is equally nancially eligible instead. Student loans, especially need-based loans, are disbursed to most every needy student. From time to time someone who has made a mistake in their past, though needy, does not and cannot qualify for federal aid, regardless of the steps in the present they are taking to make good choices and like seeking higher education. But, as I have previously stated, this is not a moral issue but one of economics and efcient public services. So, just for fun lets make an alternative moral argument to that which was presented in the August 30 editorial. This is an argument that can be made although it need not be, as the ordinance has intentions other than dictating public morality. Lets say that Herbert T. Dopesmoker is the rst from his poor family to attend college, much less KU. Herb is completely reliant on Federal Student Aid and an assortment of grants to fund his education. He is an excellent student, and progressing quickly towards his double major in education and political science. During his senior year, while hosting a party at his apartment, the Lawrence Police show up to end the shin-dig, in the course of which they nd a pipe and a very small amount of the drug, Marijuana. Both the pipe and the drugs are not even his despite his extremely ironic name, hes never even tried the pot, but they are in his house. Under the current system Herb goes directly to jail, does not pass go (Lawrence is not a monopoly game, remember? Of course you do.), and loses a lot more than two hundred dollars. His nancial aid is cut, his grants are rescinded, and Herb can no longer afford to go to college any longer, so he drops out. He is convicted and is now, not only permanently haunted by his criminal record, but is also more than fty thousand dollars in debt, a debt which he has no real prospects of paying off any time soon, essentially sentencing him to years of menial labor at low wages. Why? A little pot, a lot of bad luck, and because he and his family are not rich enough to pay his way out of the hole he fell in to. Does a system that can turn one mistake, one misjudgment, or some misfortune into a lifetime of debt or deprive one of the opportunities afforded the recipients of a college education on such grounds seem a little immoral to you? It does to me. Under the proposed ordinance this unfortunate series of events is largely averted. Herb will no doubt have to work hard to pay off the court fees and nes assessed to him, he may have to borrow more money to do so, but at least he might be able to fulll the potential within himself, and someday repay society for leniency and understanding he was shown by a SENSIBLE policy towards rst-time offenders. It may be easy to sit back and claim to have the moral high ground, to pass down judgment from afar, to harbor opinions based on a conception of concrete, uniformly applicable morality that exists only in the abstract, however, the world is made up of shades and touches of gray, and this ordinance is a recognition of that. Compassion and empathy are virtues that are important parts of our character, both individually and socially. Our policies should reect these virtues. Mike Peterson Lenexa Senior

Hot. Dog. Cart. Do it! I feel like Ive been left out of the loop or something, because I dont know who Eric Jorgensen is.

I think the presence of a hotdog cart would raise KUs national ranking. I hope our basketball uniforms arent as ugly as our football ones. How about a little creativity? You know, I wouldnt even know if you guys will print this, because the newspaper box at Malott is always empty. Come on, I think we can do better than two bundles a day.

Riding a bike to class is social suicide! I just have a comment about the nasty looking blemish on one of the most identiable symbols of the University of Kansas. Im referring to Allen Fieldhouse, of course. Instead of increasing the size of where people can sit and watch the game, theyre putting on a gift shop so rich people can buy their kids stupid little stuffed Jayhawks. Congratulations to whatever upper-management person made that decision.

Ive always said that Hogan knows best, and now there is a television show that validates my assertion. Student-athletes arent the only ones who work hard to go here. The University does a really crappy job of treating its students. Im talking about shoving us all into one gate with only a few ticket takers so we all miss kick-off.

To the guys who stole our keg shell, youre not invited to our birthday party! No but seriously, could you return it? We sort of need it this weekend.

The squirrel comic is probably the funniest comic that the Kansan has. R. Kellys remix to Ignition just came on, and I havent heard that song since freshman year, but I remembered every word. And in no way is that sad.

Nice try hotdog cart guy, but everyone knows that hippies only eat green things and sunshine. I want my trash can back.

Letter from the editor

t sports (sort of)

Hello and welcome back to another fun-filled, factually dubious year at The University Daily Kansan. A year full of exciting possibilities that will slowly diminish into depressing realities. This is Tongue in Beak, the satire section of the newspaper. Here you can find your dose of campus hilarity and hijinks on the first Wednesday of every month. Thats right. Four times a semester, after you are done with the crossword puzzle, you can turn to the back page of the Kansan for some edgy satire thats usually written at the last minute and sometimes peppered with a clever penis joke. Because of the offensive nature of some of the articles in the Tongue in Beak section, we have to remind you, the reader, that we are not for everyone and that the writers and editors of the Tongue in Beak section are not the writers and editors of the actual Kansan. So, seriously, if you are from Johnson County and are offended by an article, be sure to have your parents contact us. On the other hand, if you really like an article, or you think this section is a shoddy rip-off of The Onion and that you could do better after smoking a couple of bowls (which, by the way, is just the drugs talking; you cannot outdo this literary brilliance), please do not e-mail or call the Kansan newsroom. Instead send your e-mail to tinb@kansan.com, and well be more than happy to ignore or ridicule it.
Thank you, Owen Morris Tongue in Beak editor

Cheetos too cheesy for Jaybowl


Administrators have voted against selling Cheetos in the Kansas Union, citing reasons for the denial alarmingly high levels of cheesy flavor and an inability to protect minors from the snack that many experts consider dangerously cheesy. Obviously Im disappointed that the proposal was denied, said Jeff Coates, Seneca junior and student senator. We felt strongly that students could responsibly enjoy this destructively cheesy, yet tasty, snack while bowling in a safe environment. The proposal was submitted by Student Senate to Chancellor Robert Hemenway and vice provost of student success Marlesa Roney. Senate polled students, asking if they would feel safe in the Union around an item with a potentially fatal cheese level.

Former KU basketball player J.R. Giddens and former KU running back John Randle will face off in a bloody, bare-knuckled duel to benefit local charity Friday. We just felt like we owe the community a little somethin somethin for, ya know, puttin up with our bullshit and, ya know ... whateva, Giddens told reporters Monday.

The event is expected to raise at least $100 for the United Ways Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence, after subtracting legal fees incurred by Giddens and Randle. This town has given me bars to urinate on, stolen credit cards to order pizza with and random bouncers to punch so I figured, Hell, why not? I should give something back, Randle said while trying to start his car, for which he evidently had lost the keys. I hope Randle The Pissin Vandal tears into Giddens, said Jamal Weekley, 8, a member of the Boys and Girls Club. Thatll teach Giddens to shoot deep three pointers when we had Simien under the net. Randle expressed confidence in his chances of winning.

Wont even be a fight. Itll be like kickin the ass of a bouncer at The Hawk, then stealin his wallet and pissin on him, Randle said. Lets just say Ive got a knife or two up my sleeve, Giddens hinted at the weigh-in Monday. Kickin Randles butt will be as easy as draining threes from ten feet behind the arc while being guarded. Chancellor Robert Hemenway said he didnt care who won because the two men no longer played sports for the University. The two criminals will face off after last call Friday night, or whenever the Hennessy runs out in front of the former Moon Bar. Tickets are $10 the night of the event or $5 in advance. Advance tickets are available from the United Way. Crowd safety is not guaranteed. Edited by Kellis Robinett

Students supported the sale of Cheetos with an overwhelming majority, and most students looked forward to the snacks in the Union. I enjoy Cheetos at my house and at restaurants, and I do so as a legal adult. Not every day, mind you, just on the weekends, said Nick Ross, Hiawatha graduate student in biological science. = We agree that most students probably would not have had a problem with it, Roney said. Its just that 5 percent or so will abuse the product, and we consider the risk too high. The Union sold Cheetos until 1994, when one students head exploded from a cheese overload, splattering bystanders with a mixture of brains and dehydrated, processed cheddar. Since then, all genetically engineered hydrogenated corn products have been banned from campus.

writer. Heres my problem: my girlfriend weighs 360 pounds, an improvement from 400 a year ago. I am all right with this because, to me, its the person inside that counts. Recently, though, I met a girl who just happened to be thinner and I truly believe with all my heart that shes a nicer, better person. I tried to tell my girlfriend

Dear Jim: Whoa Dude! Youre in luck cause Rick the Partymeister Do you like the nickname? I came up with it myself has had a little experience with the bulging beauties himself. I remember this one Kappa Kappa Alpha girl I met at the annual Ball on the

Beach party that all my crazy frat brothers and I throw. This chick, although she did not weigh 360 pounds, I would guess was packing a solid buck twenty-five. At first I thought it was a joke, cause, like, how could a girl that weighs more than 110 pounds get into our party? After all we ARE Delta Psi Epsilon! But when I realized it was not a joke and that she was not a custodian or anything I decided to approach her. I like to think of myself as a good samaritan type, you know, and this was definitely a case of charity on my part. Any-

ways, after I approached her and asked her if she had any diseases or anything that made her grotesquely obese, she responded no and that she was actually healthy whatever that means. I talked to her for a while but after that I realized she was not my type. The reason I mention that story, though, is because like only five minutes after I finished talking to her I took one of my famous beer bongs, and these two chicks were looking really impressed at me and all, so I used some of my smoother moves What am I talking about? All

of my moves are smooth! And we ended up talking and, you know, one thing led to another, and I ended up, like, getting on both of them at once in the pool house, and just as we were about to take it to the next level one of the girls passed out and cracked her skull on the concrete. That part was not cool, but to tell you the truth, I was hella messed up myself! Yea man! Best night of my life! So to answer your question, Jim keep rocking!

The NFL has the preseason and college basketball has the EA Sports All-Stars, but what about college football? As teams around the country learned last Saturday, week one of college football is no half-speed scrimmage. Its as important to the standings as games in November. The Jayhawks escaped a loss, but showed they have a lot of growing to do to contend in the Big 12 Conference. The offense looked like an outof-tune guitar, with every plucked string leaving the Jayhawk faithful cringing at another incompletion or penalty. Senior running back Clark Green and junior running back Jon Cornish had strong individual performances overshadowed by a disjointed team performance. The good news for Kansas is that it was not the only big-name school dusting off the cobwebs. Oklahomas loss to TCU had the feel of March Madness and perhaps damaged the Sooners title hopes. Ditto for Texas A&M and Auburn, both ranked teams that lost to unranked opponents. With tough conference schedules ahead for all three teams, it becomes important for them to regain footing in time for Saturday. College football doesnt slowly build to an exciting finish like other sports. It comes rushing out with the power and force of a fire hose turned to full blast. With only 12 games in a season, the match against Florida Atlantic can be considered as important as the one against Oklahoma. Every victory and loss is magnified. The closest the Jayhawks had to an exhibition was the spring game. Comparing this to a real game would be like saying Hydrox cookies taste as good as

Jayhawks kill Billikens


Three games, three victories

KANSAN STAFF WRITER

The Kansas volleyball team swept Saint Louis last night, bouncing back from its first defeat of the season. With the exception of a close third game, the Jayhawks dominated the Billikens from start to finish. Kansas served itself a

victory in game one, 30-22. The Jayhawks came up with four aces against just two errors. In contrast, Saint Louis did not record any aces and had three miscues. Game two saw much of the same, with Kansas running away from its counterparts and winning by eight for the second time last night. The Jayhawks were aided by a paltry .364 at-

tack percentage in the frame, while the Billikens hit just .160. The third and final game was more competitive. Saint Louis hung with Kansas until the end, before falling 30-28. Trailing 15-12 in the third game, Kansas called a time out to regroup. From there, the Jayhawks and Billikens were neck

and neck until a service error by Saint Louis gave Kansas a 29-28 F heck out C kansan.com for a photo gallert of last nights matches.

Oreos. Nobodys going to be fooled. Considering this lack of experience, scheduling for the first week is important. The Jayhawks made a terrific decision by booking Florida Atlantic. The Owls gave the Jayhawks all they could handle, but in the end, the talent gap was too much for the Owls to overcome. Kansas will play a similarly wise game this Saturday against Appalachian State. If there are still kinks to be ironed out, the team can figure it out and still have time to recover. Thats not to say the Jayhawks will have a 2-0 record after Saturday. Four quarters of sloppy football will result in a loss against any team, as evidenced by Oklahomas fallout against TCU. The Kansas team that played the first half on Saturday was not the same as the team in the second half. Neither would win a Big 12 game, but the second-half team showed signs of improvement. If the same can be said on Monday, then Jayhawk fans have reason to be encouraged about the upcoming season. Analyzing last Saturdays game as an exhibition is a mistake, because it wasnt. Instead, smart scheduling means Jayhawk coaches could get a good look at their team without worrying too much about the result. FPhillips is a Wichita junior in journalism.

Senior running back Clark Green takes a handoff from junior quarterback Adam Barmann during the game against Florida Atlantic University on Saturday at Memorial Stadium. Green carried the ball 20 times for 107 yards.

Green confident, not cocky after strong opening game


By Ryan colaianni

KANSAN STAFF WRITER

Clark Green made a lot of noise on the field Saturday, but off the field, he goes about his business quietly. He said he doesnt look at his stats and isnt caught up in the accolades. Thats me, the senior running back said. I might not look like I am excited, but I am. Green said he had made progress on his ability to read

defenses. That was evident Saturday, as Green rushed for 107 yards on 20 carries. I did OK, not too bad; I got 100 yards, Green said. Yards dont really matter to me. We got the win. Thats what I care about. Green has changed his style of running since his freshman and sophomore campaigns. Previously, he was more of a downfield runner, as he tried to run over defenders to gain yards. Green appeared faster Saturday and was able to accelerate past

defenders. Last season, Green did not see as much playing time because he put on too much muscle weight. Consequently, he lost his starting job to then-sophomore running back John Randle. Green now weighs 210 pounds, and Kansas football coach Mark Mangino has given Green the starting job. It was just too much weight and he felt I wasnt as quick as I should, Green said.

Sophomore goalkeeper starts soccer season strong


By C.J. Moore

Kansan sportswriter

Sophomore Colleen Quinn won the battle for starting goalkeeper this fall over senior Erin Ferguson and freshman Julie Hanley. Though shes off to a strong start, Quinn realizes she needs to stay on her toes to keep her starting gig. I cant get complacent, said Quinn, from Fort Collins, Colo. I know that I have to come and work hard every day, because I know that Julie and Erin are going to come and work just

as hard. Were pushing each other every day. I definitely dont have it won by any means over the other two. Q u i n n takes over for Meghan Miller, Quinn who started 87 straight games during her career at Kansas and developed a reputation as one of the best keepers in the nation. Quinn realizes the pressure of taking over for a four-year starter and second team All-American. Its definitely big shoes to

fill, Quinn said. I know that none of us are really there yet, but were still learning. She had four years to learn, but were still young. Quinn spent the summer playing for her club team, the Colorado Rush. Quinn was joined on the Rush by sophomore defender Afton Sauer. The two Colorado natives helped the Rush win the U23 national championship, defeating a Kansas team featuring KU teammate Nikki Alvarez in the semifinals en route to their title.

This week in Jayhawk football


Starter not yet named Kansas football coach Mark Mangino didnt name a starting quarterback for Saturdays game against Appalachian State yesterday at a press conference. Mangino said he would probably use both senior Brian Luke and junior Adam Barmann, and he would choose the starter later in the week. Meier has health problems, out indefinitely Because freshman quarterback Kerry Meier is out indefinitely with a health issue, the team lacks a third-string quarterback. Mangino said senior Jason Swanson would likely be the teams third-string quarterback if needed. Mangino names teams players of the week On offense, the coaching staff selected senior running back Clark Green, with 107 yards rushing on 20 carries. On defense, senior linebacker Nick Reid and senior defensive end Charlton Keith were selected. Reid led the team with 11 tackles. Keith had four tackles and a sack. Special teams player of the week was sophomore place kicker Scott Webb, who was perfect on fieldgoal attempts, including a 43-yarder. Mangino stays in contact with NFL players With the NFL season beginning tomorrow, Mangino spoke about his friendships with former players who now play professionally. Mangino said he rarely contacted them during the season because of busy schedules. He occasionally got a phone call from former players asking for advice, and during the offseason players would visit him in his office. Tim Allen coming back Mangino said senior defensive tackle Tim Allen suffered from an injury, but hoped to be 100 percent better by this weekend. He also said Allen needed to play, or he might lose his starting position. Rodney Allen to defensive tackle Junior defensive end Rodney Allen spent time at defensive tackle on Saturday. The coaching staff made the switch last week. Allen said the transition wasnt difficult, but he had to get used to a different spot. Say What? He has kind of teased us on the practice field the last couple years, Mangino said of junior running back Jon Cornishs ability to run over defenders, as he showed on his touchdown run last week.

Guard rewarded with scholarship

mens BasKeTBall

After three seasons of paying his own way to play basketball for the Jayhawks, Steven Vinson was rewarded for his hard work. The senior guard was given a scholarship for the 2005-06 basketball season, Kansas coach Bill Self announced yesterday. Stephen has been a great teammate during his time here at Kansas, Self said. Hes very positive, a great ambassador on campus and the hardest working Jayhawk in our program. He has improved a tremendous amount since he has been here due to his attitude and work ethic. Vinson, who attended Lawrence High School, has been an invited walk-on for the last three seasons. During his career at Kansas, he appeared in 39 games.

This was something Coach and I talked about, but I didnt expect it, Vinson said. I will do everything possible this year to prove I am worthy of this. The scholarship couldnt have come at a better time for Vinson and his fianc, Anna Harvey of Lawrence. I got engaged this past summer, and this will help with the finances, Vinson said. Vinson is scheduled to graduate with a communications degree in May 2006. Self said that Vinson, who is known for his work ethic, will be able to set an example at practice for this years young Jayhawk team. Stephen will be a great leader for our young guys to follow, Self said. His role with this team should be greater than any other time during his career.

Loss to Marshall haunts K-State


day and recounted that last play a dozen or more times. Each time Jeff Schwinns pass slipped through his outstretched arms, and each time he took full responsibility. Maybe its easier to talk about the missed touchdown pass now, considering Kansas State went on to win its first Big 12 championship. Maybe its easier because Dennis has finally put football in the proper perspective. Dennis was born in Thibadoux, La., and his parents Alvin and Hollie still live in St. James, a small town 56 miles north of New Orleans. The town was hit hard last week by Hurricane Katrina, although Dennis family fled to safety. You turn on the TV right now and you see the sights, said Dennis, whose mother has been distributing his old clothes to those in need. It makes football seem pretty small compared to Louisiana right now. Thats not to say football doesnt mean a lot to a senior who has had a roller-coaster career. And no one game means more to Dennis than Saturday against Marshall. I didnt want to be in that position again, the guy who couldnt make the catch, Dennis said. I worked hard to get myself better. I prepared myself to change that. I want to show the world that Ive redeemed myself.

MANHATTAN It has been nearly two years since wide receiver Davin Dennis lay face down in the end zone at KSU Stadium, after what could have been a game-tying touchdown pass slipped through his hands as time expired. It was a tough pill to swallow, Dennis said yesterday, remembering Marshalls 27-20 upset of then-No. 6 Kansas State in 2003. It just so happened the game kind of laid in my hands at the end, but I didnt make the play. Dennis, then a sophomore, said the loss haunted him for weeks, as the Wildcats struggled through a three-game losing streak. When he turned on ESPN, he saw the highlights. When he opened a newspaper, he read the headlines. It was pretty hard to get out of my mind, Dennis said. I remember a lot of things we did good and bad in the game, but the last play has stuck in my mind. That last play. Only a handful of players who had a part in the outcome two years ago are still on Kansas States roster as the Wildcats prepare for a rematch Saturday in Huntington, W.Va.

Those who do remember seem just as eager to forget. A lot of people talk about that game a couple of years ago, fullback Victor Mann said, but it doesnt matter. Both of the teams are new. But Kansas State coach Bill Snyder, the quintessential hereand-now coach, does remembers the loss vividly almost every play of it. I can think of a hundred plays in the ball game when we pitched it to them and they run it in for a touchdown, and we had a chance to score and we didnt, Snyder said. I remember a lot about it, but nobody should have to carry that burden. Not even Dennis, who stood bravely in the corner of the Vanier Football Complex yester-

AUSTIN, Texas Retired life is nice, but Lance Armstrong says he is thinking about making a comeback. Recently engaged to rocker girlfriend Sheryl Crow, the seventime Tour de France champion issued a statement yesterday confirming that hes contemplating a return to competitive cycling. While Im absolutely enjoying my time as a retired athlete with Sheryl and the kids, the recent smear campaign out of France has awoken my competitive side, Armstrong said. Im not willing to put a percentage on the chances but I will no lon-

ger rule it out. Armstrong, who will turn 34 this month, retired in July after winning his seventh consecutive Tour and declared Im finished. He said he wanted to spend a few days with a beer, having a blast with time dedicated to playing with his three children. But hes also spent the last two weeks angrily denying reports by the French newspaper LEquipe that said tests showed he used a performance-enhancing blood booster in the 1999 tour. Armstrong first hinted of a comeback in an interview Monday with the Austin American-Statesman. An Armstrong spokesman yesterday said the comments were a joke, but within hours, the cyclist confirmed it was possible. Im thinking its the best way, to anger the French, he told the newspaper. Im exercising every day.

Coroner rules 49er had heart disease


SANTA CLARA, Calif. San Francisco 49ers offensive lineman Thomas Herrion had heart disease and evidence of previous heart trouble when he collapsed and died after a preseason game last month, an official in the Denver County coroners office said yesterday. The coroners findings confirmed the beliefs of Herrions family and friends, who were certain drugs played no role in Herrions death Aug. 20. Herrions heart condition was caused by factors that are often nearly undetectable, though fairly rare in a 23-year-old ath-

nFl

lete in good physical condition. It really squashes all the speculation regarding his death, said Frederick Lyles, Her rions agent. They appear to be very thorough in their analysis. Hopefully, now people really get off the idea that these guys are overweight, or that drugs or steroids were involved. Herrion had ischemic heart disease, with significant blockage in his right coronary artery that caused the death of heart muscle, according to Amy Martin, a forensic pathologist and deputy coroner in Denver. Herrions heart was slightly enlarged, a condition that could be related to anything from heart disease and high blood pressure to heredity.

NEW YORK Roger Federer finally got a scare in the U.S. Open. Looking more mortal than the guy who has dominated tennis the past two years, Federer dropped his first set in the Open before putting Nicolas Kiefer of Germany away 6-4, 6-7 (3), 6-3, 6-4 yesterday to earn a spot in the quarterfinals. So far in this tournament, I havent lost set before, Federer said. When it happens, youre not ready for it. Federer will play 11th-seeded David Nalbandian or Davide Sanguinetti. Nalbandian, because I have a bad record against him, Federer said when asked if he had a preference. Lleyton Hewitt scored one for the fashion police in making the

quarterfinals for the sixth straight year. He won 6-1, 6-4, 6-2 over No. 15 Dominik Hrbaty, who drew more attention for his pink peekaboo shirt than his play. The 2001 champion and runner-up last year now plays Jarkko Nieminen, who became the first Finnish man to reach the quarters in a Grand Slam event with a 62, 7-6 (6), 6-3 victory over Spains Fernando Verdasco. I wouldnt wear it. But it made it a lot easier for me to beat him today, Hewitt said. I just couldnt lose to a bloke wearing a shirt like that. It was ladies night at Arthur Ashe Stadium, with No. 1 Maria Sharapova taking on fellow Russian and ninth-seeded Nadia Petrova, and fourth-seeded Kim Clijsters facing No. 10 Venus Williams. Federer has hardly been tested in the Open or this year, for that matter. Hes 68-3, unbeaten since the French Open semifinals,

and has won 32 straight matches on hard courts moving him ahead of Ivan Lendl and behind only Pete Sampras in the Open era. Federer can break Sampras record if he wins the tournament. But Federer looked vulnerable early against Kiefer, whom hed already beaten three times this year. Federers timing was off as he repeatedly hit shots a touch too long or dumped them into the net, and his game lacked its usual flair. He even tossed his racket once, a rare show of emotion on the court. Federer finally returned to form in the third set. With the set tied 3-3, Kiefer reached double break point when Federer netted a forehand. But Federer rallied, drilling a 120-mph service winner, then yelling Come on! after hitting a crosscourt pass to get the score back to deuce. Kiefer made two unforced errors as Federer closed out the game. Federer broke Kiefer the next game, then served out the set as Kiefer slipped awkwardly racing for a shot in the corner on set point. Though Kiefer made him work for

the final set, Federer seemed more like himself with dazzling shots no one else can make. Maybe its the proximity to the Garment District, but the Open seems to be the spot for fashion statements. Three years ago, Tommy Haas was ordered to change after he showed up in a sleeveless muscle shirt. Now, of course, all the kids are wearing them. Serena Williams showed up in a zip-down, stop-at-the-thighs black Lycra outfit a few years back, and sported knee-high black boots, a pleated denim miniskirt and a studded black tank top last year. This year, it was Hrbatys shirt causing the stir. The black-andpink shirt looks ordinary from the front. On the back, though, there are oval-shaped cutouts flyholes, Hewitt called them below each shoulder that look like a peekaboo bra. Or as if the shirt had gotten caught on his head. I dont really know what the design means, Hrbaty said. The shirt itself is actually nice. You dont sweat as much. Also, you dont feel the heat that much.

LOS ANGELES Bob Denver, whose portrayal of goofy first mate Gilligan on the 1960s television show Gilligans Island, made him an iconic figure to generations of TV viewers, has died, his agent confirmed yesterday. He was 70. Denver died Friday at Wake Forest University Baptist Hospital in North Carolina of complications from treatment Denver he was receiving for cancer, his agent, Mike Eisenstadt, told The Associated Press. Denvers death was first reported by Entertainment Tonight. Denver had also undergone quadruple heart bypass surgery earlier this year. Denvers wife, Dreama, and his children Patrick, Megan, Emily and Colin were with him when he died. He was my everything and I will love him forever, Dreama Denver said in a statement. Denvers signature role was Gilligan. But he was already known to TV audiences for another iconic character, that of Maynard G. Krebs, the bearded beatnik friend of Dwayne Hickmans Dobie in the The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis, which aired from 1959 to 1963. Gilligans Island lasted on CBS from 1964 to 1967, and it was revived in later seasons with three high-rated TV movies. It was a Robinson Crusoe story about seven disparate travelers who are marooned on a deserted Pacific Island after their small boat was wrecked in a storm. The cast: Alan Hale Jr., as Skipper Jonas Grumby; Bob Denver, as his klutzy assistant Gilligan; Jim Backus and Natalie Schafer, as rich snobs Thurston and Lovey Howell; Tina Louise, as bosomy movie star Ginger Grant; Russell Johnson, as egghead science professor Roy Hinkley Jr.; and Dawn Wells, as sweet-natured farm girl Mary Ann Summers. TV critics hooted at Gilligans Island as gag-ridden corn. Audiences adored its far-out comedy. Writer-creator Sherwood Schwartz insisted that the show had social meaning along with the laughs.

Two and a half games were really clean, Bechard said. The third game was a different story. The Jayhawks serving was sloppy, and they struggled to put the Billikens away. We were a little uneven there in game three, Bechard said. I thought at the key times our serving was good, but were still a little below where we want to be. Sophomore opposite hitter and setter Emily Brown had one of her best matches as a Jayhawk. She finished with 11 kills, 15 digs and three total blocks. Brown focused more on the Kansas team effort after the game. I felt like we played really well as a team, Brown said. We accomplished goals we set at the beginning of the season.

Caten offered some insight into her good night. Sometimes you get lucky, Caten said, laughing. Every ball I hit was falling. At times Saint Louis seemed groggy from its long drive down Interstate 70. Communication was a problem for the Billikens, who collided with each other on numerous occasions during routine plays. In addition, they finished the match with a .120 attack percentage and 14 service errors. The Kansas victory kicked off a six-match homestand. This weekend the Jayhawks will play host to Virginia Commonwealth, Michigan State and Temple in the Pizza Hut Jayhawk Invitational. We got off on the right foot, Brown said. We set the tone tonight. Kansas tallied its third sweep in six matches this season and improved to 5-1. Saint Louis dropped to 3-4 with the loss. Edited by Becca Evanhoe

Lacrosse face-off

Green

1B Green had games last year that showcased his potential. He rushed for 118 yards on 32 carries against Missouri in last seasons finale. When he has pressure on him and he has to get it done, he gets it done, Mangino said. Greens 5.3 yard-per-rush average Saturday helped the offense get into a groove in the second half. Junior captain and center David Ochoa said he enjoyed blocking for Green. Whenever he gets the ball, he is going to run as hard as he can, Ochoa said. Whenever we call on him for pass protection, we know he is going to block. Ochoa and the offensive line did a great job opening holes for Green Saturday, Mangino said. They did a good job producing the running game and the passing game, Green said.

Their defensive line did a lot of twists. We did a good job of picking up on that. When Green needed a break, junior running back Jon Cornish was there. Cornish had two big runs for first downs, including a 29-yard touchdown run where he appeared to be tackled, but barrelled over defenders into the end zone. Running backs routinely get hit by everyone, and dishing it back to the defense is always a great thing to do, Cornish said. Green could pass L.T. Levine Saturday against Appalachian State for seventh all time on the Kansas rushing list. He needs just 51 yards to pass Levine. When it gets here, thats when it comes, Green said of moving up the rushing list. You all can ask me about it. I am not counting. As usual, Green is just staying quiet and playing football.
