Building a spirit empire

Funding questions plague Prop 200 By Brian Mori Special to ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

Zona Zoo budgets show the student section has grown from a grassroots operation to a complex brand-name, with record-high spending on new departments and programs By Bryan Roy ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Michael Huston founded the modernday Zona Zoo Crew with an $8,000 budget, which forced him to pick only the necessities when spending student money. His mission was simple: Students wanted a section at football and basketball games, so the former Zona Zoo director orchestrated an attractive product at the lowest price possible. Now, three years later, the studentfunded official spirit section spends almost $9,000 on crew stipends alone — part of a budget that exceeds $50,000 for the 2009-10 year.

Not so simple anymore. Rapid growth, popularity and revenue have inflated Zona Zoo from a small grassroots service into something more like a corporation. The $85 or $125 students pay — depending on whether they choose to include men’s basketball — for prime seating at sports events also funds new departments like community development, campus outreach and even Zona Zoo’s own television production. The final tab on those three alone: $16,610 this year. Zona Zoo budgets acquired by the Arizona Daily Wildcat through a public records request show large increases in internal and non-sports-related spending

after the 2006-07 school year. This year, out of the $52,370 grand budget, $33,860 will be spent on resources without in-game connections. The increase in spending comes after Zona Zoo raised the price of its passes by $20 from last year — not because it’s selling significantly more passes. Executive Director Raul Ponce estimates Zona Zoo sold 11,500 passes so far this year, up from 11,400 last year. A total of 12,162 passes were sold in 2007-08. “I took very seriously that that money belonged to students,” Huston said. “It didn’t magically fall into our lap. It was money that my classmates spent out of

their pockets. It was my job to make sure I delivered them a good product.” After a four-week delay in obtaining more detailed spending reports, ex-Zona Zoo director David Roost released the 2007-08 to 2008-09 budgets that documented the newly created branches and their costs. “Our internal records are for our internal use. I really don’t know why the students would care how we spend our money,” Roost said in a text message. Huston disagrees. Zona Zoo money is, in fact, the students’.

What would become the largest and most costly expansion of municipal government in Tucson’s history could become law Nov. 3 if passed by voters. During the city’s, state’s and country’s worst economic period since the Great Depression, Tucson’s public safety Proposition 200 will require the city to increase and maintain police and firefighter staff levels at numbers the city says will bankrupt other city services. At a projected cost of over $270 million in the first five years, to be shared by the city and county, Proposition 200 has been the most publicized issue in this year’s election and has the support of all three Republican Tucson City Council hopefuls. “You will probably not see another campaign any time soon where you’ve got organizations from the far left, far right and everyone in between all saying that (one proposition) is bad for Tucson,” said Brandon Patrick, campaign manager for No on 200: Don’t Handcuff Tucson. Organizations like the Goldwater Institute and the Pima County Democratic Party, typically on the far opposite sides of political issues, have both chosen not to support Proposition 200. Patrick said students should care because the reason tuition at the UA has increased is a budget crisis from a history of similar unfunded mandates at the state level. Tucson City Manager Mike Letcher reported on Sept. 28 that residents will be asked to help with tax increases if Proposition 200 passes. Since then, Letcher and the council have been careful to not directly propose tax and fee increases, but stress the city already has a budget deficit of over $40 million. Public safety has been a major platform for all three Republican City Council candidates and a critique of the current council by each. Proposition 200 proponents and council would-bes like Republican Shaun McClusky, who is running against Democrat Richard Fimbres for the south-side Ward 5 seat, have said the city’s current plan is not enough to ensure perspective residents and businesses that Tucson is a safe community. McClusky promised at the Tucson

Green tea could treat HPV By Carly Kennedy ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT University Medical Center researchers are trying to see if a green tea extract could help clear the human papillomavirus. The team is still enrolling test subjects to participate in a four-month study of the effects of a chemical known as Polyphenon E , which is present in green tea, on patients with HPV or an abnormal pap smear. The team is calling for about 156 test subjects, and once quota is met the team will split the pool into two

groups. One group will receive the Polyphenon E in the form of a pill, and the other team will be given a placebo, explained Bonnie Weible, the study’s coordinator at the Arizona Cancer Center. The study is known as a doubleblinded placebo controlled experiment because the two groups have no idea if they are receiving the Polyphenon E, nor does the study coordinator. That information will be revealed at the end of the study. Test subjects will complete six study visits spread out across the four-month period, and will be

compensated $250, explained experiment leaders. Past experiments have shown that the green tea extract helps the body’s immune system clear up cervical lesions, thus it could potentially help those with the HPV virus. These results landed the UMC’s research team on their theory. “We are trying to prove that the group of women that are put on the Polyphenon E, more of them will clear the HPV than the women on the placebo,” Weible said, “because a person’s immune system can clear up on it’s own.”

OK, that’s weird because I thought all females take really long showers and that’s what makes them late all the time. Do you take long showers? No.

Do you think maybe they might be peeing in there? I would hope not. But hey, whatever floats your boat, you know? In the dorms, do you guys have community showers? In Coronado, the dorm that I live in, you have suitemate bathrooms. So you have to share with your suite-mates but it’s not a community bathroom, no.

LAS VEGAS — A lucky swap and some eager building propelled a 19-year-old Norwegian student to the top of board game fame and sent three would-be tycoons to the poor house at the Monopoly World Championship in Las Vegas. Bjorn Halvard, who graduated Mr. Moneybags this year from the Oslo Private Gymnasium school, captured the title on Thursday when the battleship token of 25-yearold Geoff Christopher of New Zealand landed consecutively on Pacific Avenue and North Carolina Avenue, and he couldn’t afford the combined $1,600 rent. “(I’m) the most surprised you could ever be,” Halvard said. “I think this was a really good final. It was the best game I played in the whole tournament.” Halvard won $20,580 in real money for the title — the total amount in the bank of a standard Monopoly game. The other finalists won nothing beyond the trip that brought each of the 41 competitors to the Caesars Palace hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip to represent their home countries as national champions. After taking out 24-year-old Russian Oleg Korostelev, Halvard bankrupted American champion Rick Marinaccio, a 26-year-old corporate lawyer from Buffalo, N.Y., who was trying to become the first U.S. player to win the board game championship since 1974. Halvard was the only player without a monopoly after trades gave Marinaccio the magenta property group, Christopher the oranges and Korostelev the more expensive greens. But the game turned when Korostelev swapped Halvard a cheaper light blue property to gain the red property group, giving Halvard an inexpensive monopoly with cash to develop. The moved surprised Halvard and the other players because Korostelev couldn’t afford to build on the property group and didn’t negotiate for cash. “I thought I was in such a great position,” Marinaccio said.“I didn’t see that coming and I don’t think New Zealand saw that either.” Halvard mortgaged his other properties and loaded up on hotels for Oriental, Vermont and Connecticut Avenues, seeing his opponents’ tokens within range of the spaces on the board. The move was risky because his iron token faced a gauntlet side of developed magenta and orange properties, and Halvard said he may have lost if his opponents dodged his hotels. “Either they come to me and I get enough money to survive, or I go out,”he said. He finished with $6,888 in cash and assets in the game. —The Associated Press

UA students and community members gathered at Reid Park on Saturday to raise money for the Walk to Defeat ALS, more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease after the famous baseball player. The event was organized by the Phi Delta Theta fraternity, and members of the UA cheerleading squad as well as Wilbur the Wildcat were there to show support and raise morale.

Mike’s Wildcat Walkers, was organized in honor of a UA graduate and former employee, Mike Wetzel. Wetzel graduated with a degree in business and education and was a 17-year employee of dining services before he died of ALS in June 2005, according to Alan Wetzel, Mike Wetzel’s father and a part-time employee in UA dining services. “Our team has been around for seven years and has grown every year,”Wetzel said. “The walk itself has grown from less than 100 people the first year to over 700 people this year.” In Highland Market, a plaque hangs that is dedicated to Mike Wetzel’s service to the UA, said Cech, who is Mike Wetzel’s sister.

Team Dobson is named for Velma Dobson, an ophthalmology professor at the UA who works from home. “She is renowned in the world of ophthalmology and has ALS and has a team that walks for her,” Cech said. Each team hopes to raise money from the walk. Phi Delta Theta aimed to raise $1,200 and met its goal, Yanez said. Mike’s Wildcat Walkers hoped to get $8,000 and raised approximately $20,000 this year, Alan Wetzel said. The overall goal of the walk is $100,000, and before Saturday they had raised over $57,000. The money from the actual event has not yet been tallied.

“At the end of the day, it’s the students’ money,” Huston said. “It’s a big responsibility that I hope Zona Zoo directors take seriously. Any student that asks, ‘What’s my money being spent on?’ should get a good answer. That’s what it means to be accountable to students where students are trusting you with their money.”

By Michelle Monroe ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT UA students showed their community spirit on Saturday at the Walk to Defeat ALS at Reid Park. ALS is commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease after the popular baseball player, who died from the disease in 1941. Gehrig was a member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity at Columbia University. Phi DeltaTheta adopted the ALS Association as its philanthropy in the 90s, according to MattYanez, an aerospace engineering junior and new-member educator for Phi Delta Theta at the UA. Members of the fraternity volunteered at the walk. “We’ve been doing this yearly,”Yanez said. “We also put on other events for ALS, like a concert in our backyard, and we’re working on a city-wide golf tournament, open to the public like this event.” Four members of the UA cheerleading squad were present, as well as Wilbur the Wildcat. “We’re always excited to see UA cheerleaders and Wilbur,”Yanez said. The cheerleaders and Wilbur were invited to join in the festivities by Laura Cech, one of the organizers of the walk. “The cheerleaders are kind of mingling and energizing everybody and being a part of the celebration for a cure,” Cech said. The cheerleaders were more than happy to be part of the event. “We’re here to support the walk, cheering on the walkers and getting everyone pumped up on a such as beautiful day, and to be part of the Tucson community,” said Amanda Berg, a pre-nursing freshman and UA cheerleader. The accounting professional fraternity Beta Alpha Psi participated by running a raffle booth. “Our adviser Karen Otto had someone she knew that had ALS so she encouraged us to do it last year,” said Kelly Campbell, president of the fraternity. “Last year we just did the walk. This year we wanted to volunteer.” One of the teams walking this year,

When you have a budget of tens upon tens of thousands of dollars, the responsibility on you is that much more significant.

After the 2007-08 athletic season, Roost and Bruce re-negotiated with the athletic department for the same five percent deal initially proposed by Huston. The 2008-09 season brought in $50,243 — up from $43,226 previously earned under the old agreement. “It’s really given us the ability to grow and develop and go in directions that were never possible,” Roost said.

Today’s big spending

The following are the largest increases in spending from 2008-09 to 2009-10:

Stipends expand to each branch

— Michael Huston former Zona Zoo director The beginning: A new revenuesharing agreement

Before Roost took over in 2007, the Zona Zoo received a static amount of funding from the Associated Students of the University of Arizona — about $10,000 total. Roost’s first responsibility as director began with negotiations with the UA athletic department to create a revenue-sharing agreement. At the time, Huston was the outgoing Zona Zoo director and said a new deal — which would have given the Zona Zoo five percent of total pass revenue — had been agreed to in principal by the athletic department. However, Huston wasn’t invited to the follow-up finalization meeting attended by Roost and then-ASUA President Tommy Bruce. Roost and Bruce then agreed to a new deal that got the Zona Zoo $3 for every pass they sold.

Budget item: Internal costs, up from $6,678.10 to $10,500 in a one-year span This year, 42 students are part of the Zona Zoo Crew, and all branch directors receive stipends. These positions include: •Executive Director Raul Ponce, who oversees general operations •Associate Executive Director Hersh Goel. •Programming Director Christina Searby, whose responsibilities include road trips, pep rallies and tailgating, with a budget of $19,010. •Campus Outreach Director Alison Coleman, whose responsibilities include scholarships, alumni and a spirit council, with a budget of $4,150. •Media and Communications Director Luke DeVogeleare, whose responsibilities include Zona Zoo TV and other communications, with a budget of $7,460. •Community Development Director Dominick San Angelo, whose responsibilities include community service, Junior Cats program for at-risk Tucson youth and the Territorial Cup blood drive, with a budget of $5,000. •Marketing Director Conner Comp, whose responsibilities include event advertisement, atmosphere and promotions, with a budget of $6,100. •Branding coordinator, responsible for overseeing the merchandise line in the bookstore and maintaining the Zona Zoo

brand in publications and online. A director has not been chosen yet. “We’ve expanded so much in the last couple years,” said Ponce. “We’ve expanded all of our programming. It was a little rough at the beginning just getting used to everything we do. I think it’s going well so far. We’re continuing to grow and strengthen.”

Zona Zoo TV

Budget item: Media and communications, up from $1,693.44 to $7,460 The Zona Zoo spent $7,460 on video and computer equipment this year to further fund a YouTube channel called“Zona Zoo TV.” The channel has received 5,147 total views at time of publication from 40 videos — about 127 views per upload. The network began last school year with an initial start-up cost of $1,693.44. “We’re putting up more videos; those are also going pretty well,” Ponce said.

Junior Cats

Budget item: Community development, up from $272 to $5,000 About 100 at-risk local children from the community will participate in the “Junior Cats”program in its second year of existence. The Zona Zoo pairs up middle school-aged students with college students to experience a university atmosphere.

‘Semivegetarianism’ could ease global warming Dunja Nedic columnist


nyone attending college probably realizes that the environmental crisis we are currently experiencing is not a myth. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change predicts that the global surface temperature is likely to rise up to 11.5°F by the year 2100, setting into motion a slew of catastrophic consequences for our planet, such as a rise in sea level, increasingly frequent heat waves and periods of heavy precipitation and more severe tropical cyclones. Numerous species will become extinct, which will wreak havoc on our ecosystem. And if you’re dumb enough to think this won’t affect you, then perhaps give some thought to the impact global warming will have on the economy. According to the United Nations Environment Programme, the banking, transport and agricultural industries will all likely suffer due to climate change. And you thought the global financial crisis was bad now. So what can we do? For the average college student, financial viability takes precedence over environmentally friendly alternatives to their lifestyle and this is completely understandable. Installing solar panels on your home and buying a Toyota Prius are simply not feasible ways to reduce your carbon footprint for most people. But there is a way to minimize the detrimental impact that you personally are having on our environment without having to make a radical change to your lifestyle or budget. The answer is semi-vegetarianism. A 2006 report by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization stated that the meat industry accounts for more greenhouse gas emissions than those cumulatively produced by all the SUVs, cars, trucks, planes and ships in the world. The report also found that the industry is “one of the top two or three most significant contributors to the most serious environmental problems, at every scale from local to global.” Animal farming accounts for the highest levels of methane and nitrous oxide emissions, and these gases, along with carbon dioxide (which is also produced by the meat, egg and dairy industries in alarming quantities), are the most potent causes of global warming. The devastation that is resulting from our overconsumption of meat products is a problem we can no longer ignore. Ideally, I would like for all of you to become vegetarians instantaneously. However, I realize that encouraging this tends to polarize people’s views on how much meat they should ethically be consuming, and such a suggestion is usually met with the assertion that the other person cannot or will not give up any meat. Food is a major source of pleasure and socializing for many people, but meals incorporating meat should be the exception, not the rule. However, with the tendency of on-campus food outlets to provide so few vegetarian options, it’s no wonder that people wouldn’t elect to cut meat out of their meals. Undeclared freshman — and the only vegan I have met in Arizona — Marcea Decker prefers to contend with regular battles for cooking equipment in her dorm than to shuffle over to the student unions and choose between having a salad at the Cactus Grill and a salad at Core. “All of the food outlets on campus follow the fast-paced convenience of our society,” Decker said. “I feel that if there were more choices for healthy eating and ethical restaurants then people would be inclined to become more conscientious of the way that they consume, behave and treat other living beings.” And yet the reason she does it is to try to offset the average American’s consumption of meat, around 271 pounds a year, the world’s highest rate, according to the UN. More people should be vegetarians and the food outlets on campus should be offering a greater variety of options to cater to people who take responsibility for their carbon footprint. The reduced environmental impact of using recyclable bags or taking short showers, while admirable, is nothing compared to the difference you can make by simply decreasing your meat consumption. According to the Environmental Defense Fund, if every American resisted meat consumption just one day per week, the environmental advantage would be the same as having 8 million fewer cars off the roads. There are plenty of interesting and tasty ways to adapt your favorite meals to be meatless; the meals available on campus are a truly poor representation of this. It doesn’t matter whether you consider yourself to be environmentally conscious or not. We are all equally responsible for allowing the health of our earth to continue to deteriorate. We can no longer afford to be ignorant of the devastating effects that cultivating livestock has on global warming. You have no excuse. — Dunja Nedic is an Australian exchange student.

MAILBAG Columnist ignores the real problem of abortion

There were too many facets of Rachel Leavitt’s article for me to touch on in just one response, so I’ll start with her stance on abortion (“Oklahoma: Abortions are none of your business,” Oct. 22, 2009). Her ignorance on the issue was vividly displayed in her article opposing the Oklahoma legislation requiring pregnant females desiring abortions to report their “personal” information. The biggest defect in her way of thinking is that she doesn’t even mention the welfare of the human being living in the mother’s womb, although I do give her the credit of at least mentioning the “emotional strain that accompanies the decision to abort a fetus.” Not only are you killing a human being by performing an abortion, but a lifetime of emotional distress haunts the potential mothers (in a majority of cases). Just in case you start to think, “Yeah, but what about rape victims and mothers of children with birth defects?” First of all, each of those cases happens in less than 1 percent of all women undergoing abortions. Second of all, there is another way. There will always be couples out there looking for the “unwanted child.” The most common excuses that women give for having an abortion actually have to do with “not being ready” or being “immature,” which is why 75 percent of all abortions are performed on women between the ages of 15 and 29. It appears the tendency in our time is to evade obligation for our actions. The real problem here lies with people that believe it is OK

to kill the fetus to get out of the responsibility of parenthood. The hope for us that value the life of the unborn child is that the mother realizes through ultrasound (and an unbiased and informative meeting with a physician) that the child that she created is living inside her, dependent on her next choice.

Wildcat should write about UAPD’s legitimacy

There are photos circulating of a boy who ran a stop sign on his bicycle, then was tackled and held down by two UAPD cops while being handcuffed. I can procure these photos if anyone is interested. With the chalk arrests not far behind us, perhaps an article about UAPD’s legitimacy (or lack thereof) is necessary? I recall that they recently motioned to be equipped with assault rifles. They should know that their behavior is intolerable, and that the student body is uneasy. Thomas Shea biochemistry and molecular biophysics junior

Tickets won’t solve UA road hazards Dan Sotelo columnist


he greater UA campus has turned into a war zone. Drivers must look in their mirrors every five seconds to make sure there are no bikes speeding from behind them. Pedestrians trying to walk across the mall feel like they’re on a battlefield. Cyclists, meanwhile, feel like pedestrians are walking landmines, just waiting for a huge collision. The saving grace of most cyclists is that they travel very fast. If they get in the way of cars or pass a stop sign when it’s not their turn, at least they get out of the way quickly. UAPD has responded to such concerns by posting officers at heavy traffic intersections to cite those who cycle past stop signs. I saw a cyclist blow past a stop sign while there were no cars around, and kept chugging after a policeman held up a hand and told him to stop. The policeman walked down the UA Mall a little way, speaking in his radio, probably calling a helicopter to follow the suspect. Yes, that cyclist broke the law, but any extra time or resources spent on pursuing and citing the offender is a gross waste of taxpayer money. More importantly, all police resources spent on cyclist monitoring could be better spent elsewhere. If a car runs a red light, there’s little chance that the driver will get out of a ticket. Pedestrians, on the other hand, violate the law every day without being cited. Anyone who walks and has to cross a street knows the rules of the stoplight. When the little man flashes, it’s time to walk. When the hand is held up, it’s time to stop. When the sign is flashing, pedestrians can finish crossing the street, but can’t start. Students who start walking as the hand is flashing and the light turns

yellow are violating the law. Rushing across the street, even as a pedestrian, should not be protected any more than blowing past a stop sign on a bike while there are cars attempting to cross. Should UAPD stand at stoplights and issue tickets when students start walking too late? No — as with citing cyclists, that would be a waste of police resources — but that doesn’t make it any less dangerous. My experience as a member of driving, walking and cycling populations of the UA has granted a subtle insight on how to solve many of the campus traffic problems: walk faster! Pedestrians do have the right of way, but many walkers mistakenly take this right as absolute. The right of way does not automatically cause drivers to slow down or stop on a dime. There may be a brief lapse in oncoming traffic, but walking slowly across the street can force a string of drivers to rashly brake. Students commonly walk across the street as the hand flashes and light turns yellow. Cars attempting to turn are gridlocked as pedestrians casually finish crossing the street. The delay caused to one line of traffic results in the slowing of perpendicular traffic. The actions of pedestrians, which are often discourteous, exacerbate the potential for traffic collisions, which is already sky-high due to Tucsonans’ sub-par driving ability and composure. It’s understandable if pedestrians need to cross at the last second. Sometimes, waiting for an extra green light is the difference between getting to class on time or getting singled out by a professor for arriving late, but there should be a common courtesy extended to everyone else having to deal with traffic. If you cross when the hand is flashing, walk faster so that you don’t hold up traffic waiting to turn. If you must cross when the stoplight is turning yellow, then walk really fast or even jog to make it before the perpendicular light turns green.

Crossing the street at the last second at a slow pace is dangerous and discourteous. Oncoming cars, especially those on the line, anticipate the green light. Cars in the rear often do the same, which means that any delay caused by last-minute, slow walkers can worsen already dismal traffic conditions and create the potential for rear-end collisions. Anticipating a green light may be unsafe, but it is a practice undertaken by drivers frustrated with the already molasses-like pace of Tucson traffic. Switch the positions and see how dangerous it still is. Pedestrians often start walking just as the light turns red. Any car driving across at the last second trying to make the yellow light poses a serious threat to cyclists and pedestrians. Anticipating the light while others try to make it past a yellow can place all parties in danger, no matter who does what. Instead of relying on police enforcement, the responsibility lies with each pedestrian, cyclist and driver to realize how their behavior affects everyone on the roads. Drivers are rightfully subject to the highest level of scrutiny since their high speeds and tons of heavy metal necessitate stricter enforcement of traffic laws. Cyclists must realize that Mountain Avenue is not the mountain stage of the Tour de France. There are no magic barriers to keep cars from crossing the path of a bike when traffic affords a brief moment of passage. Pedestrians have to accept the fact that even though they’re given the right of way, they’re the lowest on the commute chain. Walking faster or even waiting as the light turns yellow creates a safer commute for everybody. It’s time that people stopped picking on just cars and bicycles. — Dan Sotelo is a political science senior. He can be reached at

A day in the life of the UA during wartime By Alex Dalenberg ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT


ixty-five years ago World War II raged across the globe as Allied Forces marched deeper into Axis territory in the European and Pacific Theaters. But for UA students back at the home front, life continued as normally as possible, with the then-weekly Arizona Wildcat gearing up for the presidential election, as well as documenting the lighter side of campus life. Here are some snapshots from the Oct. 27, 1944, issue of the Arizona Wildcat.

Drive, declared,“The future of the world lies in its women.” Haury, then-head of the anthropology department, was responding to a statement made by Harvard University’s anthropology head, Dr. Earnest A. Houston who said the United States’chief need is a woman president. “Dr. Haury believes that the female sex has a more even temperament — one of the most necessary qualities for holders of public office,”the Wildcat reported. Haury, a student of Houston’s, told the Wildcat he was pessimistic about any lasting peace being made after the Second World War. “Man has been fighting ever since he has existed and war now is more or less instinctive with him. It will be at least a thousand years before war can be eliminated,”Haury told the Wildcat.“The male sex has had its chance to do what it can in public administration.”

The Oct. 27 issue of the Wildcat devoted an entire page of space to the upcoming 1944 presidential election between President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Republican challenger Thomas E. Dewey, governor of NewYork. “The Republican Party has supplied a liberal, progressive administration only twice in its history — both times by accident,”wrote Albert Gotlieb in a letter to the editor.“In 1865, Lincoln was elected because the Democratic Party was split. Theodore Roosevelt came into office through the death of McKinley.” Gotlieb credited Roosevelt and the Democrats with enacting collective bargaining legislation, Social Security, the Securities and Exchange Act, the Civilian

Conservation Corps and a slew of other Depression-era programs, as well as “successfully conducting the greatest war in history.” Letter writer Gordon Johnson plugged Dewey as a candidate who would cut a more independent course in foreign policy, ending“charity”for foreign nations, and accused Roosevelt of kowtowing to European values. “It would be safer to trust our future to a man who thinks American rather than to one who has lost faith in America,” Johnson wrote. Additionally, Johnson took swipes at Roosevelt’s upper-class background, contrasting it with Dewey’s modest beginnings. “Thomas Dewey comes from a typical American family. He grew up as most of us did,”Johnson wrote. “He went to a public school, he played baseball with the rest of the kids in the block … He knows how average America thinks because he is a product of average America.” Roosevelt would go on to win 432 to 99 in the Electoral College on Nov. 7, carrying 53.4 percent of the vote.

UA football star killed in action

In the same issue, the Wildcat reported:“The ravages of war last month claimed the life of Lt. Ted Bland, generally considered one of the greatest football stars ever to play on the Wildcat team.” According to the article, Bland was killed in action in France on Sept. 29, 1944, while serving with the Seventh Army. “Known as the‘Mighty Mite’of Arizona football, Bland terrorized the Boulder Conference for three years,”the Wildcat wrote.

Thought to be too small for the varsity team at only 150 pounds, the Wildcat wrote that Bland fought his way to the quarterback slot, leading the Wildcats to a Boulder Conference title in 1934. He also led the baseball team in batting his sophomore year as a second baseman for J.F.“Pop”McKale’s team.

ASUA Sen. Brooks plans for diversity reconstruction By Shannon Maule ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Student government Sen. James Brooks is leading an open discussion to confront stereotypes and promote diversity leadership in the UA community. The event will be held tonight at 6 in the Tucson Room of the Student Union Memorial Center. Brooks decided to head up the discussion after he attended Collegetown, the college branch of Anytown Arizona, this summer. Anytown Arizona is an organization that provides programs on diversity and social awareness for college students, Brooks said. “We wanted to empower our delegates, to create change,” said Kendal Nystedt, collegiate program manager of Anytown Arizona. “Every day throughout our conference they broke down into action groups to talk about

specific issues, and we hoped they’d continue with them after our conference ended.” Brooks said he hopes the discussion will provide students with the opportunity to speak about diversity awareness, social justice and stereotypes. “Actually, the word ‘workshop’ doesn’t really fit. We’re going to do activities and then speak about how we felt during them,” Brooks said. One activity participants will take part in is called a Diversity Walk. “We will put the names of groups people associate with on the wall and then talk about how we can break down those specific stereotypes,” he said. Brooks is planning for the diversity workshop to be an ongoing discussion that would occur every three months or annually. “Hopefully it is something

that will stick around,” he said. Dustin Cox, a former Associated Students of the University of Arizona senator and current executive director of Anytown in Arizona , is enthusiastic about the event. “First of all, the event is absolutely necessary, on whatever campus we’re talking about. The issues that the programming addresses are universal — they don’t just exist in certain places, they’re all over society,” he said. Cox and Nystedt both contributed to the planning of the workshop. Brooks created a Facebook group to inform UA students about the event, which says the two-hour session will “promote discussion and action from all groups on campus about our community.” As of press time, there were 76 members on Facebook who committed to attending the event.

Police, fire personnel would increase

Tea Party that Proposition 200 would not raise taxes. North-side Ward 3 Republican City Council candidate Ben Buehler-Garcia, who is running against Democrat Karin Uhlic, characterized Tucson on his campaign Web page as “inundated with crime,” based on Arizona Daily Star’s interactive crime map. Tucson’s violent and property crime rates have fallen in the last five years, according to city reports. “The debate over Tucson’s crime ranking misses the main point,” Buehler-Garcia wrote on his Web site on Oct. 18. “We should be working to make Tucson safer.” Proposition 200 supporters believe Tucson should meet the national average of 2.4 police officers per thousand citizens. The proposition would also put the city at risk for lawsuits if the fire department did not conform to a four-minute response time to emergency calls. The initiative provides no guidance for how the city should pay for increases in staffing, emergency

vehicles, weapons and equipment or facilities. Proposition 200 supporters disagree with both Tucson and Pima County cost proposals. Colin Zimmerman, director of public affairs for the Tucson Association of Realtors, the primary donor to Proposition 200, said in an interview after the Tucson Tea Party that he believes the money is already in the city budget. In 2006, the City Council approved a sustainability plan placing public safety as the highest priority for increases over the next 10 years, as funding permits. “We’re doing exactly what they asked for,”said Ward 6 City Councilwoman Nina Trasoff, whose seat is up for grabs this term. “We are not responsible for the economy tanking. Thank you, Mr. Bush.” The UA is located within Trasoff’s ward. UA Athletic Facilities and Capital Projects Associate Director Stephen Kozachik is campaigning against her. The 2006 sustainability plan endorsed the 2.4 officers-per-thousand-citizens ratio but provided Pima Country Sheriff’s Department officer Guy Quaintance writes a speeding ticket at Orange Grove Road Sunday.

for 10 years to achieve it. The city reported 2009 firefighter staffing levels at 100 percent, and the hiring of 80 police officers since the plan, which also included the renovation of the West Side Police Service Center and plans for a new forensics laboratory. Trasoff said that while some police administration personnel have been laid off, no cuts are planned to patrol officers or investigative personnel.

FOR MORE INFORMATION A public town hall dialogue will be held today at 6 p.m. in the Leo Rich Theatre of the Tucson Convention Center, 260 S. Church Ave., to help the public understand the initiative. Arizona Public Media (KUAT) and Cox Communications will host a panel of representatives like Patrick, as well as Proposition 200 proponents Brian Delf of the Tucson Firefighters Association and Tucson conservative radio personality Jon Justice. KUAT Arizona Illustrated’s Bill Buckmaster, Arizona Daily Star opinions editor Ann Brown and the Tucson Weekly’s Jim Nintzel, also a professor with the UA’s school of journalism, will ask questions of the panelists.

Lost wallet returned to surprised owner

University of Arizona Police Department officers met with a man at the UAPD station on Oct. 16 at 5:48 p.m. in reference to a lost wallet. According to police, a man’s wallet was found on campus and turned in to police. During an inventory search of the wallet, two fictitious driver’s licenses were found inside. The wallet’s owner was notified and when he arrived at the police station, officers informed him of their desire to question him about the wallet, to which he agreed. Officers showed the man the wallet and asked if it was his. He replied that it was but told police, “It’s all rearranged. It’s not the way I left it.” Officers told the man they had discovered the fictitious licenses and he replied, “You had no right to look through my wallet. It doesn’t belong to you.” One of the fakes was described as an Ohio driver’s license with the man’s name and picture but a different date of birth. The other fake was described as an Indiana driver’s license with the man’s picture on it and false name and date of birth. Police cited the man on two charges of possession of a fictitious driver’s license and he was released on scene. The incident has been referred to the Dean of Students Office.

Cops call tagger’s mom to verify identity

UAPD officers responded to the 1100 block of Second Street on Oct. 16 at 7:56 p.m. in reference to a report of vandalism in progress. According to reports, two men were spotted walking northbound toward Second Street from James E. Rogers Way, using markers to write or draw on several street signs in the area. Officers observed two men matching the descriptions given. As officers approached, they observed one of the men throw an object over a wall. Police contacted the men and attempted to identify them. One of the men gave police a name that did not return a valid record. Officers contacted the man’s mother and she was able to give police the correct information. A records check of the other man revealed gang affiliations and previous charges for criminal damage. Behind the wall where officers observed one of the men throw an object, police found 3 colored markers. That man was cited on three charges of criminal damage and released on scene. During a search of the other man, officers discovered 8 colored markers on his person. He was arrested on seven charges of criminal damage and false reporting to a law enforcement officer. He was transported to Pima County Jail.

Second tagger cited on additional charges at Pima County Jail

UAPD officers were dispatched to Pima County Jail on Oct. 16 at 10:45 p.m. in reference to a man in custody attempting to bring contraband into the facility. Upon arrival, UAPD met with Pima County Sheriff’s officers who informed them that the individual who was transported to the jail for seven counts of criminal damage and false reporting was in possession of marijuana in the jail. According to Sheriff’s officers, the man stated, “I have been booked before. I don’t have anything on me.” During a search, officers found a bag containing one gram of marijuana in the coin pocket of the man’s pants. UAPD officers cited the man on charges of possession of marijuana, false reporting to a law enforcement officer and promoting prison contraband. UAPD officers placed the marijuana into property.

Would-be car thief unable to operate 5-Speed

UAPD officers responded to 1060 N. Cherry Ave. on Oct. 17 at 11:45 a.m. in reference to a vehicle break-in. Upon arrival, officers made contact with the owner of a Honda Accord. According to the owner, he parked the vehicle at 9 p.m. on Oct. 16 and when he returned at 7:30 a.m. on Oct. 17, he found the vehicle damaged. According to police, the driver’s side window had been broken and the ignition switch had been severely damaged. The vehicle had also been moved one parking space adjacent. The car was equipped with a manual transmission and it is believed that whoever attempted to steal the vehicle was unable to properly operate it. A tow company was dispatched to transport the man’s vehicle for repairs. Police have no suspects or witnesses at this time.

Two men push stalled Saturn into guardrail

UAPD officers were on patrol in the area of East Speedway Boulevard and North Mountain Avenue on Oct. 17 at 4:18 a.m. when they observed a Saturn that appeared to have been in a collision. While exiting the patrol vehicle, a witness informed officers that the two male occupants of the vehicle had fled east on foot. Officers were only able to locate and detain one man. According to eyewitness accounts, the vehicle had stalled near the intersection of East First Street and North Mountain Avenue. The two occupants got out and began to push the vehicle out of the roadway. They lost control of the vehicle and it struck a railing on the west side of the intersection. The two occupants then walked eastbound away from the site of the collision. According to police, the man they located was identified as the driver of the Saturn. He admitted to drinking and operating the vehicle, but was unable to remember the incident. He was cited on charges of minor in possession, minor in possession operating a motor vehicle and leaving the scene of an accident. His vehicle was towed for a mandatory 30-day impound.

No. 23 Arizona 27, UCLA 13

Bruins bullied

Sonny days for offense

Nelson shines for defense, Criner for offense in win By Brian Kimball ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

The No. 23 Arizona football team did just enough to earn a 27-13 win against UCLA Saturday night at Arizona Stadium, but the squad on the field might have looked unfamiliar to UA fans. The Wildcats (5-2, 3-1 Pacific 10 Conference) appeared to be an entirely different team than the group that won 43-38 a week ago against Stanford. That Arizona team had trouble slowing down the Cardinal offense, while Saturday’s unit had no such problems against UCLA. A Wildcat offense that ran up and down the field last week, seemingly at will, stalled more than once against the Bruins (3-4, 0-4 Pac-10). But when the final whistle blew, the end result was the same: an Arizona victory. “We’re all in this together, and the bottom line is getting wins, but you certainly want to hold up your end of the bargain,” said UA defensive coordinator Mark Stoops. “We challenged our guys this week to just play with a little tougher mindset, and work a little harder and put a little extra into it. “I was very proud of our coaches and our players. They did a nice job all week,” he added. “We came out (Saturday night) and we had a really strong mindset and we played really hard.” The theme of the game was the stellar play of the Wildcat defense, one Stoops called the most complete effort of the season. After allowing Stanford to gain nearly 600 yards of offense last week, Arizona put the clamps on UCLA and allowed just 211 yards on the night. Led by senior safety Cam Nelson’s two sacks and two forced fumbles, Arizona sacked UCLA quarterbacks four times in all, caused two turnovers and never allowed the Bruins to find their comfort zone. In fact, all 13 of UCLA’s points came as a direct result of UA turnovers — two FOOTBALL, page 11



Mike Stoops head coach

on the team struggling but finding a way to win: We got a little bit embarrassed a week ago and I knew that our kids are very prideful and to win you better play good defense. … If we’re going to win anything we need to play better defense and our kids certainly rose to the occasion.

Alan Walsh/Arizona Daily Wildcat

Offensive coordinator Sonny Dykes on quarterback Nick Foles’ three interceptions: He has a lot of confidence so he’s not too worried. He knows that’s part of playing quarterback. I mean, Brett Favre’s thrown a bunch of interceptions and is going to throw more, that’s part of the deal.

on the play of the offense: We have a lot of playmakers. Just getting the ball out to them quick and giving them the opportunity to do what they do, which all of us can do. That’s one thing we try to do on offense is get the ball out quick, that way there’s no rush from Terrell Turner the D-line. We like to get the ball out of wide receiver the quarterback’s hands and keep the pressure off of him, so it’s good to get the ball out of his hands.

Defensive coordinator Mark Stoops on the defense’s performance: Overall, that’s generally the effort that we play with around here. Certain teams will neutralize you with certain ways they attack you, but I think our guys have a great attitude, a great work ethic and it showed (Saturday night). We were really flying around and making plays.

on whether the bye week will slow down the team’s momentum: It shouldn’t at all. We have a bye week to get some guys healthy, but we’ve got Xavier Kelley to bounce back and have linebacker the same mentality and come back with the same enthusiasm.

No Cali love for V-ball The road hasn’t been kind to Arizona volleyball in the past three seasons, and this weekend was no exception, as the No. 16 Wildcats fell to both California and Stanford in the Bay Area. “I think it shows you how tough the conference is,” head coach Dave Rubio said. “The only thing (losing) proves is that this conference is deep.” In their best chance of the weekend to seal a game on the road, Arizona (15-5, 4-5 Pacific 10 Conference) fell in three close games against the Cardinal (14-5, 7-2 Pac10). Although Arizona tallied more kills and digs in the match, No. 6 Stanford still managed to come away with the victory. The Wildcats got outstanding efforts from junior outside hitters Tiffany Owens, who recorded her ninth double-double of the season, and Whitney Dosty. Arizona was still unable to claim a set as Owens tallied 12 kills while Dosty notched 15. The next highest kill total after the juniors had four players knotted at three kills apiece.

hings are going very, very well for the Arizona football program. The Wildcats have won two in a row, and with Washington State next on the schedule it’s looking like a hat trick is on the way. A No. 22 ranking in the Bowl Championship Series last week led the Wildcats to be ranked No. 23 in yesterday’s Associated Press Poll, and a No. 20 BCS ranking announced as well. Nick Foles is a savior, and Mike Stoops’ plan to turn the program around is finally coming to fruition. But it’s time that the man perhaps most responsible for Arizona football’s renaissance steps into the national spotlight. Wildcat fans, the next time you’re around McKale Center you should seek out offensive coordinator Sonny Dykes, shake his hand and thank him for all that he’s done. Consider this: Arizona’s offense this season has suffered through a quarterback controversy that at one time seemed disastrous, has fielded six different offensive line combinations because of injury, been down to its third- and fourth-string running backs on more than one occasion and lost its best player, tight end Rob Gronkowski, for the year before the season even started. Yet the Wildcats have the most productive offense in the Pacific 10 Conference with 445.4

Freshman defender Alex Smith dribbles the ball during Arizona’s double overtime, 2-1 victory over rival ASU on Friday at Mulcahy Stadium. Smith made the game-winning goal for the Wildcats.

Arizona soccer freshman Alex Smith bicycle-kicked the ball into the back of the net in double overtime to defeat rival Arizona State 2-1 at Mulcahy Stadium Friday, creating one of the greatest moments in the history of the Arizona soccer program. For the first time ever, the Wildcats (4-11-1, 1-4-0 Pacific 10 Conference) defeated the Sun Devils (7-5-3, 0-4-1 Pac-10) in front of their hometown fans. The memories of a tumultuous season faded for at least one night as the Wildcats ended a six-game losing streak. “I’m speechless. That was the most thrilling thing ever,” said Smith, whose game-winning goal was her first collegiate goal. “This is definitely a turnaround for the program. Finally we got a win having all these people here playing against ASU. “I don’t know what else to say,” she continued. “It’s the turnaround of the program.” As fans lingered in the stands to give the team a standing ovation, about eight former players huddled together on the field, waiting to congratulate the team after its postgame talk.

“Amazing, I don’t think I (could) ask for a better senior gift, to beat our rivals when they thought they were the better team,” said redshirt senior goalkeeper Devon Wharf. “It’s a big thank-you to our (fans), we wanted to prove to them that we play for them. It’s a win for us, but it’s a win for them too.” The victory marked the first win for co-interim coaches Lisa Oyen and John Galas since former head coach Dan Tobias stepped down for personal reasons. “It feels great to get our first win this way. It for sure adds a little bit of sugar on top,” Galas said. “We’re so proud of this group for fighting through an average second half and finding a way to win. This group has stayed together and they’re committed to each other, so it was wonderful to see them get the win.” The Wildcats, who played a solid first half, took the lead early in the first half on a goal by redshirt junior Alex Davis in the 15th minute, which ended the team’s 462-minute streak without a goal, the longest scoring drought in program history.

The Wildcats will travel to New York to participate in the Iona College Tip-Off Tournament, something that players expressed a great longing for. â&#x20AC;&#x153;East Coast teams, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a different type of play out there,â&#x20AC;? Thomas said.â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just going to be different, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a challenge for us, especially since those are our first couple road games.â&#x20AC;? In addition to the start of the sea-

son looming on the horizon, the Wildcats have found another source of inspiration for their last few practices. After being ranked ninth in the Pac-10 preseason coachesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; poll, returning and new players are motivated to make their presence known in the conference. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The rest of the coaches in the Pac10 donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be that good, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motivation for us,â&#x20AC;? Butts said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our team was not real happy about that, so now we have something to work for and something to prove. I like that.â&#x20AC;?

Smith scores first-ever goal

continued from page 7

Arizona womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball held its media day in McKale Center on Friday and ushered in a new team that has been rebuilt during the off-season. The Wildcats, along with head coach Niya Butts, talked about remaking the program and where they will find motivation this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to get out and be uptempo this season,â&#x20AC;? Butts said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year we tried to do that somewhat but werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t very successful just because of our personnel. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be looking to push the ball frequently this year.â&#x20AC;? Butts addressed the media about the new additions in the off-season and how the Wildcats are looking to turn the program around. The Wildcats added six new players in the off-season, including four junior college transfers and former Arizona Gatorade Player of the Year Davellyn Whyte. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got a brand new core of girls that are going to be ready to take the floor,â&#x20AC;? Butts said. That core will give the returning players time to rest and provide the talent to build a competitive program in the Pacific 10 Conference. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though we have new players, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not just new players,â&#x20AC;? said junior forward Ify Ibekwe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re new players that can contribute, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re new players that have that spark and energy. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all together. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all expecting to have an amazing season. We found a chemistry.â&#x20AC;? The new additions to the Wildcatsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; roster will help reboot what proved to be a depleted bench last season. The players talked about how this season will be different and how the preparation has paid off with less than two weeks until the beginning














Arizona dominated the ball, having possession for most of the first half. The Wildcats outshot ASU 7-4 in the first half, and took the 1-0 halftime lead as they continued to showcase the new offensive rhythm theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had for the last few games. In the second half, ASU came out firing, creating several scoring chances and outplaying the Wildcats. Despite all the scoring opportunities, the Wildcats continued to keep the Sun Devils from finding the net. But on a play where Wharf made a key save, she booted the ball past midfield when there was no Wildcat player nearby. That resulted in ASU goalkeeper Alyssa Gillmore retrieving the ball. Gillmore quickly started the offense and within 30 seconds, ASU was able to tie the game in the 85th minute on a goal by forward Courtney Tinnin. In the overtime periods, ASU continued to attack but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find the net as Wharf continued to make crucial saves. Wharf finished the game with seven saves, giving the Wildcats a chance to set up Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game winner. ASU outshot the Wildcats 17-14 for the game, but were unable to take advantage of several opportunities. Arizona improved to 4-11-1, but must build on the emotional victory that gave the team its first Pac-10 win. The team will have its toughest challenge of the season when it travels to the Bay Area this weekend to take on California on Friday and the No. 1 team in the nation in Stanford on Sunday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take it one game at a time. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll prepare for them just like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve prepared for every Pac-10 opponent,â&#x20AC;? Galas said.â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re excited to play against arguably the best team in the nation.â&#x20AC;?

Young W-tennis players improve By Michael Fitzsimmons Arizona Daily Wildcat The Arizona women’s tennis team took to the courts this weekend in San Diego at the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Southwest Regionals and showed much improvement across the board. The Wildcats were led by sophomore Natasha Marks, who won four matches, including a tough battle in the quarterfinals against ASU’s Micaela Hein (7-5, 5-7, 6-2) to earn a spot in the tournament’s semifinal round. Marks was defeated by Yasmin Schnack from UCLA 6-4, 6-1 in the semifinals, but despite the loss, head coach Vicky Maes was pleased with the sophomore’s performance. “I was extremely happy with Natasha’s showing both in singles and doubles,” Maes said. “She continues to make progress as she is committed to venturing out of her comfort zone.” Marks was paired with senior Claire Rietsch in the doubles draw, where they defeated three other tandems en route to a semifinal appearance. UCLA’s Schnack and Andrea Remynse eliminated the Wildcat duo Sunday on their way to the doubles title. Elsewhere in the tournament, senior Ariane Masschelein, sophomore Sarah Landsman and freshman Elizabeth Hammond all won matches in the singles bracket. Making her Wildcat debut, Hammond defeated Tara Panu from Pepperdine 6-4, 6-2 in the round of 64 before losing her match in the next round. “I was especially pleased to see

Elizabeth come up with a win,” Maes said. “She is a very hardworking player.” Landsman was able to win two matches to make it to the round of 16, but was unable to defeat Schnack in a very close match, losing 7-6, 7-6. Sophomore Debora Castany and junior Jane Huh were unable to win their doubles match at the tournament. However, after losing in the singles main draw, Huh responded by winning a match in the consolation bracket before ultimately being defeated in the next round. The Wildcats’ success was scattered over the weekend, and although both Maes and assistant coach Ryan Stotland saw some things they liked from their team, they also saw some areas where the team could improve. “The goal is to get better, and I think most of us got better,” Stotland explained. “We won some, we lost some and you can’t win them all. But overall, I think this is a good tool for us moving forward, and it’s something we can build on in the future.” “We had ups and downs in terms of results, but we felt good about the effort and the learning process,” Maes added. One thing to take away from this tournament was the camaraderie that Maes saw develop over the weekend as the team becomes a more cohesive unit with each tournament. “The tournament in San Diego was a great experience for everyone,” Maes said. “On our first trip as a team, it was great to see that the chemistry is strong.”

Road struggles still bite Wildcats

Their trend of letting teams back into the set hurt the Wildcats against Stanford. Arizona took an 8-3 lead in the first set, but the Cardinal rallied to take the set 25-22. Set two never saw an Arizona lead, and Stanford used a 7-3 run to take the set 25-21. “I feel like we had a chance against Stanford,” Rubio said. “It was a disappointing match for us because we had our chances each game, we just missed our chances.” On Friday night, Arizona was plagued by the play of No. 15 California’s Hana Cutura, who racked up 31 kills and 11 digs against the Wildcats. The senior outside hitter from Zagreb, Croatia, was too much for Arizona’s defense as she earned a stellar .638 attacking percentage. “Stanford didn’t have the same

physical presence as Cal did,” Rubio said. “Their foreign player was better than anyone we‘ve every played against since I’ve been here. We played hard against Cal, but she’s just a whole different league; the national team couldn’t have beaten Cal that night.” The Wildcats weren’t swept against the Golden Bears, however. They claimed the second set 25-21 after strong efforts from junior setter Paige Weber and middle blockers Stephanie Snow and Jacy Norton. Sets three and four were not as kind to Arizona, as they fell 25-16 in both matches. Limited offense again stalled Arizona’s chances — they hit only .155. Dosty marked double figures again in the match with 14 kills and was helped by sophomore outside hitter Courtney

Karst, who recorded 12 kills against the Golden Bears (12-7, 5-4 Pac-10). Arizona hasn’t won a match in Berkley, Calif., since 2003. Although the Wildcats have been good at defending their home court, the task of beating teams on the road has decided which teams sink or swim in the conference. “You can never take winning for granted,” Rubio said. “You take a look at how teams in this conference are doing on the road and how they’re doing at home, and you see they’re doing much better at sweeping at home and losing two on the road.” Arizona’s now sits at sixth place in the conference, one game below a .500 mark. The Wildcats will look to rebound this weekend as they host the Washington schools on Friday and Saturday.

Penalties, injuries lead to sweep of Icecats By Mike Schmitz Arizona Daily Wildcat Most people leave Las Vegas emptyhanded, and for the Icecats this weekend, that was certainly the case. Arizona (2-5) went into its two-game series against the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (11-2), with a ton of confidence, but left without a win. The Icecats were coming off of a 2-1 record at the American Collegiate Hockey Association Showcase, but poor play along with a slew of penalties and injuries resulted in a pair of losses. “It wasn’t a good performance at all,”

said head coach Leo Golembiewski. “It was probably our poorest performance of the year.” In game one, Arizona came out of the gates strong, taking a 2-0 lead off of goals by sophomore Andrew Treptow and junior Jordan Schupan, but eventually fell 7-4. After entering the second period up 2-1, things got out of hand quickly. Arizona was called for six penalties in less than 10 minutes, allowing UNLV to score an unheard of five power play goals, three of which came from a twoman advantage. “I don’t ever remember a team get-

ting five power play goals, and for three of their five power play goals they had a two-man advantage,” Golembiewski said. “I don’t care if you have (former NHL goalie) Glenn Hall in the goal, it just makes it tough.” To add to the Icecats’ troubles, they lost one of their most effective offensive players, freshman Brian Slugocki. Slugocki came into game one leading the Icecats in goals scored, but was forced to miss the remainder of game one as well as game two due to a concussion. The Icecats also lost starting freshman goalie Dave Herman with six minutes remaining in the second period

due to a knee injury. He was replaced by fellow freshman Ben Case. UNLV ended the second period up 6-3 and ultimately won the contest 7-4. Schupan was the sole bright spot for the Icecats in game one, posting his second hat trick in five games, but his offense wasn’t enough. Game two of the series was much of the same, as Arizona lost 8-2. With Case making his first start as an Icecat, the team got down 0-3 early and never had a chance to mount a comeback. “You can’t do anything about the fact that our goaltending the second game was certainly not up to par,”

Golembiewski said. Despite another goal from Schupan and a goal from freshman defenseman Nick Stolz, the Icecats ended up losing the contest. Although the Icecats have had a rough start to the season, Golembiewski is still optimistic about the remainder of the season. “It’s been an interesting first seven games,” Golembiewski said. “But with 15 guys getting a chance to play college hockey for the first time, it’s quite a learning experience. ”I feel that it’s going to be a great season, there’s no doubt about that,”he added.

yards per game. And it all comes down to play calling. Folesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; emergence as a topflight quarterback has been faster than the speed of light, and while the sophomore deserves all the credit he is getting, it would be foolish to think that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have gotten this good this quickly without Dykesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; tutelage. Arizonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offense is unique. Can you name one team that throws as many screens as the Wildcats do? What about all those quick-hooks and quickslants? Sure, those plays are common, but does any team run those more than Arizona? No, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because Dykes is an innovator. He calls plays and designs game plans that fit his personnel to a â&#x20AC;&#x153;T.â&#x20AC;? Foles is leading the entire country with a completion percentage of 72.3 percent, which is absolutely unheard of. The quarterback still has to make the throws, but credit Dykes for fueling one of the most efficient offenses in the nation. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always look pretty. Take Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s win over UCLA, for example. The Wildcats had five turnovers on the day, yet they managed to pile up 456 yards of offense. Sometimes the offense is a sharp as a tack and sometimes it just looks plain sloppy, but when you look at the stat sheet after the game, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expected

that the Wildcats will somehow, some way have more than 400 yards to their name. But Dykes means so much more to the program than just being an offensive mastermind. He is, hands down, one of the most genuine and approachable men on the coaching staff. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just as much a father and mentor to his players as he is a coach, and he handles the media with such grace and openness that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become a magnet for interview requests. He has spearheaded Arizonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s movement to a spread offense ever since he came over from Texas Tech, and has turned the Wildcats from a defense-first team to a squad with one of the most balanced offensive attacks in the nation. He has opened recruiting doors to the state of Texas and enabled Arizona to bring in recruits it never would have dreamed of 10 years ago. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an asset, a motivator and a genius. And you should really learn to appreciate what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing, Wildcat fans, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only a matter of time before heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a head coach somewhere else. And let me tell you, he deserves it. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Tim Kosch is a journalism junior. He can be reached at

answers to your quesďż˝ons about sex and relaďż˝onships Check out the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clothesline Projectâ&#x20AC;? on Wed. Oct. 28th on the Mall, 10am-2pm as part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.


Is foreplay important? How does someone make it safe but fun?

A. Great question! First letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s establish what foreplay is. Foreplay is all of the activities that come before sex (which most people define as vaginal or anal intercourse). This includes caressing, kissing, massaging, nibbling, sucking and stimulating. It is also anything you and your partner like to do to get in the mood, such as slowly undressing each other, role-playing, talking about fantasies, etc. Foreplay can add excitement and enhance pleasure for both partners. You may have heard the saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;men are like microwaves and women are like crockpots.â&#x20AC;? Men get aroused more quickly than women. For example, a brief moment of visual stimuli alone can arouse men, while multiple stimuli over a longer period of time are usually needed to arouse women. The time spent on foreplay gives both partners a chance to get in â&#x20AC;&#x153;the mood.â&#x20AC;? Foreplay has been known to make sex more enjoyable and allow orgasm to be reached more easily for both sexes. Here are some additional benefits: â&#x20AC;˘ Physically, it can add spice and variety to your sex life. By taking the time to explore one anotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s erogenous zones you can both discover new and exciting ways of arousal you may never thought were possible.

â&#x20AC;˘ Emotionally, it can provide greater intimacy between you and your partner. â&#x20AC;˘ Mentally, you and your partner can to spend more time getting in the mood and staying in the moment together longer. Foreplay is fun, but like any sexual activity itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to make it safer. If there is skin to skin, fluid to fluid, or fluid to skin contact, diseases can spread. Getting tested with your partner is a good idea. STD testing is offered at Campus Health â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to make an appointment, call 621-9202. Barriers can also be used to make oral sex safer. Campus Health sells latex dams in a variety of flavors: vanilla, banana, grape, strawberry and mint for $1 each. You can also get 100 condoms for $12.99! Foreplay can be a great way to electrify your sex life, pleasure your partner, and make sex more satisfying. It is also a great alternative if you and your partner are not ready or do not want to have vaginal or anal intercourse. Guest columnist: Carrie Hardesty, Health Education Senior
