Guaranteed tuition approved BY STEPHANIE CASANOVA The Daily Wildcat

Current UA students will have the option to pay guaranteed tuition, a set tuition for eight consecutive semesters, starting this fall. The Arizona Board of Regents approved the guaranteed tuition program Thursday morning before it set the three state universities’ tuition for the 2014-2015 academic year. The guaranteed tuition program was modeled after Northern Arizona University’s Pledge Program and will guarantee students a set tuition cost for four years. The set tuition rate is higher than the proposed tuition increase for current students who choose not to

join the program because it takes into account year-to-year increases. The new program will be mandatory for incoming freshmen. The board passed the UA’s proposed 2 percent tuition increase for resident graduate and undergraduate students and 5 percent increase for non-resident graduate and undergraduate students. The guaranteed tuition program will add an additional 4 percent increase to the base tuition increases. The program won’t be offered to graduate students. UA President Ann Weaver Hart said UA administrators carefully ran economic models to ensure the

UA Greek Life members stayed “Up ’til Dawn” to raise money for charity Friday night. Up ’til Dawn is a national collegiate fundraising program for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital The program is the UA’s annual greek-wide philanthropy event, according to Madison Kurz, a physiology junior and Director of Public Relations for the Up ’til Dawn Executive Board. The board

announced Friday evening that the total amount of money raised over the year was $114,533, an increase from last year’s total of about $97,000, according to Kurz. This is the first year the finale event was held in conjunction with Greek Sing, said Kurz. “Greek Sing is really spirited, fun, people get really excited,” Kurz said. “We thought that gearing up with Greek Week would get the spirit and excitement of the reveal and the finale.” The event began on a serious

note with a moment of silence for Michael Anderson, a UA student and member of fraternity Phi Gamma Delta who died early Friday morning. A dance competition between various groups of Greek members then took place, along with performances by CatCall and Black N’ Blue Hip Hop Crew. A cancer survivor who is a patient at St. Jude’s was also in attendance. Alyssa Leffler, 3, was


A UA student died from injuries sustained after a fall at Colonia de la Paz Residence Hall early Friday morning. Michael Anderson, 19, a pre-business freshman from Mission Viejo, Calif., was climbing on a 20-foot-tall towerlike ventilation structure on top of the residence hall with a friend when he fell onto the roof, according to Sgt. Filbert Barrera, public information officer for the University of Arizona Police Department. The fall is believed to be an accident. UAPD received a call at 3:55 a.m. Friday in reference to a fall injury, Barrera said. Tucson Fire Department attempted to resuscitate Anderson, but he was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after UAPD arrived. A medical examiner came and collected the remains. Anderson was a resident of Colonia de la Paz and a member of Phi Gamma Delta fraternity. The flags in front of the FIJI house at the end of Greek row now fly at half-mast following Anderson’s death. FIJI was a big part of Anderson’s life, even though he wasn’t a member for very long, said Cameron Steiner, a pre-business sophomore and member of FIJI. Anderson’s older brother, Scott, is a senior and a member of FIJI as well. Anderson was always happy, Steiner said. “Even on his worst day he had the biggest smile on his face,”


UA policy bans one-on-one contact with minors on campus BY HANNAH PLOTKIN The Daily Wildcat

The UA is in the process of revising an interim policy that prohibits one-on-one contact between UA faculty and minors. The interim policy, which was put in place in November, was drafted by the Office of the General Counsel and prohibits UA faculty, students and third parties running events on campus from having one-on-one contact with non-enrolled minors. This policy applies to the dozens of youth programs run by the UA and on the UA campus, and are also applicable to phone calls, emails and home visits.

The policy also disallows photographing and filming children and implements a compulsory training program for anyone working with children. James Van Arsdel, senior assistant vice president of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management, said the interim policy was influenced partially by the sex crimes against children committed by Jerry Sandusky at Pennsylvania State University. Sandusky, a former assistant football coach at PSU, was convicted in 2012 of sexually abusing young boys over the course of 15 years and sentenced to 30 years in prison. His victims

were participants of a youth outreach program Sandusky founded. Van Arsdel said the aim of the interim policy is to avoid private contact between children and UA faculty that could lead to inappropriate behavior. This means programs that involve close contact with minors now require a two-to-one ratio, with either two adults to one child or two children to one adult, he added. Van Arsdel said that schools around the country are working to better protect children and the programs that educate them. “It’s something that we are



JIM VAN ARSDEL, senior assistant vice president of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management, said the interim policy currently under revision was influenced in part by crimes committed against children at Pennsylvania State University.

additional 4 percent on guaranteed tuition was as close as possible to predicted annual increases in higher education costs. The additional money from the guaranteed tuition will not be spent the year it’s received, but will be saved to make up for the yearly projected increases. “We absolutely are committed … to [making] sure that the payments received from the guaranteed program are sequestered so they are available for the third and fourth years of that guarantee,” Hart said, “and that we don’t have the empty-the-checkbook mentality every month that would make that less sustainable.” Student Regent Valerie Hanna, a political science junior, said she was glad to see the regents approve guaranteed tuition, a program that students were heavily involved in from the beginning. Student leaders from the Associated Students of the University of Arizona took the idea of guaranteed tuition to Hart last fall semester and worked with administrators to create the policy, Hanna said. “It was really exciting for me to watch them craft this policy and put so much thought into it,” Hanna said. Student leaders also campaigned on the UA Mall, telling students about guaranteed tuition, gathering petition signatures and answering questions for students, Hanna added. At Thursday’s meeting, the regents also raised concerns about student loan debt and discussed the federal government’s proposals to reduce student loan debt. Regent Anne Mariucci said that because of the lack of state funding for higher education in Arizona, the regents should contribute to the discussion about how to reduce student loan debt at the federal level. “I think that we’re in a very unique spot to be able to contribute great thinking on that because of our unique situation,” Mariucci said. Regent Mark Killian complimented the three university presidents for doing well in their tuition recommendations despite limited resources. Killian also showed concern for the continuing tuition increases. “I think the frustration is growing because there’s an awful lot of people that support education,” Killian said. “I think they’re frustrated because they don’t have the financial resources to be able to do some of the things they want to do.” Rick Myers, chair of the Arizona Board of Regents, said while increasing tuition is always difficult on students and families, he was pleased that the UA put the program in place to provide more certainty for students. “I do wish that the state was in a situation where [it] could provide more financial aid for our students and more funding to help offset the cost of education,” Myers said. “The state Legislature is not able to do that at a significant level, so I feel good that we’re able to have modest tuition increases.”

Steiner said. “There was not one thing you could say to the kid that could … bring him down.” Steiner said he was close with Anderson, as were the rest of the members of FIJI, and Anderson always made time for his friends. “You could call or go to his room or his dorm and no matter how busy he was he would love nothing more than to hang out with everyone,” Steiner said. Friends and fellow students took to social media to express their condolences and support. A moment of silence was also held for Anderson on Friday evening at Up ’til Dawn, the all-greek philanthropy event hosted by Fraternity and Sorority Programs. UAPD is currently working with Residence Life and the Dean of Students Office to address the concerns and well-being of friends and other residents who have been affected, Barrera said. Residence Life sent an email to UA residents on Friday offering its services to anyone who may need them. UA counselors have also been called in to offer support, according to Barrera. UAPD is currently investigating why Anderson was on the roof, Barrera said. Anderson’s friend was interviewed by police and said the two gained access to the roof by climbing an exterior wall of the residence hall, according to Barrera.

Alyssa Leffler was diagnosed with cancer when she was 1, and after being a patient at St. Jude’s, has been in remission for eight months, according to Patty Leffler. They were present to help announce the amount of money that had been raised. “It’s hard to believe, really,” Patty said. “It’s extremely touching and moving … [to see] a group of kids in college that are so dedicated and interested not only in raising money, but also in raising awareness for St. Jude.” Up ’til Dawn underwent some changes nationwide this year, Kurz said.

MEMBERS OF GREEK Life take a moment of silence for Michael Anderson, the UA student who died early Friday morning, in Centennial Hall on Friday evening during the Up ’til Dawn event. Anderson was a member of the fraternity Phi Gamma Delta.

The FIJI house is quiet now, Steiner said. This weekend was Mom’s Weekend for the fraternity, he added, but the planned events “just never really happened.” Anderson’s mother was at the UA for the weekend. “It’s kind of hard to be extremely happy,” Steiner said. “We know he’s watching over us, so we try to keep our heads up the best we can.”

emails before gathering at the finale to hear the total amount of money raised, Kurz said. This is the second year that the UA has had a Greek Week, said Devon Zatorski, a communication and sports management junior. Zatorski said she has been involved with the planning of Greek Week since its inception at the UA, and that it is one of the few events during the year when all four greek councils come together. Both Greek Week and Up ’til Dawn are advised by Fraternity and Sorority Programs, Zatorski said. “The goal this year was really just to promote that community service and philanthropy within the Greek community,” Zatorski said.

of the Honors College, said youth programs run by the college have been minimally affected by the interim policy, and that most of the activities, such as campus tours, are done in groups. Some programs, such as overnight stays for high school students who have been accepted to the UA, have been slightly adjusted. UA student ambassadors host two minors rather than one in order to satisfy the policy. MacCorquodale said if there are an odd number of high schoolers to host, those placed in one-onone situations are not minors. Van Arsdel said he thinks there is still a lot of learning to be done in the field of child protection and that it’s not a subject many people are comfortable discussing. “I want people to feel passionate about the safety of our kids,” Van Arsdel said, “just as I want people to feel passionate about the education of our kids.”


struggling with,” Van Arsdel said. Van Arsdel said the revised draft uses less specific language. The revisions are meant to accommodate faculty whose programs cannot afford the additional staff or facilities necessary to conform to the twoto-one contact policy. One such case is a youth music program run by Donald Hamann, a professor at the School of Music. Hamann said that the policy’s twoto-one rule presents difficulties when conducting music lessons in practice rooms only big enough for two people. Hamann said he had not yet seen the revisions to the policy and could not comment on the effect they would have on his program. Under the policy revisions, programs with unavoidable oneon-one contact would require the parents of the non-enrolled minors to sign a waiver, Van Arsdel said.. Patricia MacCorquodale, dean

YOUR VIEWS From “Students share accounts of alleged police misconduct” (by Stephanie Casanova, April 2) I’m not saying I totally blame it on the cops, because the crowd (not all students) was clearly out of control. However, there were several contributing factors, and one [of ] the MAIN factors was the police presence. When the game was over it was pretty quiet, everyone hung their heads low and started to leave, a couple mad people but nothing out of hand. Here and there a few “UofA” and “fu__ Wisconsin” cheers rang out but nothing crazy at all. It was only when all the motorcycles, squad cars and policemen dressed in full riot gear simultaneously turned on their sirens and marched down University [Boulevard] that things took a turn for the worst. At that moment everyone turned their heads and headed toward the police, or they quickly put on their shoes and ran out of their dorms to see what was going on. My friends and I were just about leave when we heard all the commotion and that curiosity factor kicked in and we like the rest headed towards the “riot.” Also all month we had been hearing of [Tucson Police Department] training for riot this and riot that. At a certain point it seemed like they wanted a riot to happen. Alcohol was another HUGE factor in this game as well. I got down there at 12 in the afternoon, there had already been hours of drinking games and noticeably intoxicated people there at that point. I can’t imagine how much more those people had drunk by the end of the game. Comparing Saturday to Thursday isn’t even a good comparison at all. Thursday was happy, controlled and was over just as quickly as it started. Clearly there are several contributing factors and once again I’m not saying that [TPD] is completely to blame for it but I think on their end they could’ve handled it a lot differently, as could the crowd. It’s upsetting to me that they aren’t saying that on their end. How do they not see that? I can see that they are the victims but still. … And on that note what was Decker thinking by walking up to a full line of geared up cops asking why he had to leave when they told him to?!?! Sounds like he wanted to go to jail to me. Just my two cents. —Nicole Nicole, Thursday was NOT happy, controlled and over. It took the police to control the area. It was less hectic than Saturday, but it was still hectic. There were a couple of bar fights and some people jumping on cars and hindering traffic flow. I don’t condone the police’s actions, but it shouldn’t be surprising that they were there. Why? Because any riot, big or small, looks bad for law enforcement. People can flex their rights as much as they want and be angry at the 5-0 all they want. But they shouldn’t be trying to question the authority of the police when they have declared an “unlawful presence” because the cops aren’t going to bargain with ordinary citizens especially with their rights. They should’ve simply shut up, walked away and did as they’re told that night. Because defiance would be an instant issue of a misdemeanor citation. People need to stop screaming “f the police” and know what their rights are and when to appropriately exercise them, and know when they are overreaching their authority. Because if you know what your rights are, the police cannot touch you or abuse you. — FlexYourRights (in response to Nicole) From “UA student dies after fall injury at residence hall” (by Ethan McSweeney, April 4) Reading these comments makes me sad to be your classmate. Someone died. Show some compassion, or at the very least respect. My thoughts are with his family. — CA I agree, as a parent, this is our worst nightmare when we send our kids off to college. Sincere condolences to the family. — Mom

Marijuana studies smoke out confusion she had jumped through to perform the study. “The frustrating thing now is … I haven’t been able to get any information from the university about where they will actually allow this marijuana study drug to be stored,” Sisley said. “They have to find a home for it somewhere.” The article explains that though Sisley has approval from the Food and Drug Administration, the lack of a storage facility prevents the study from receiving a permit from the DEA. Even with approval from the DEA, Sisley would still need to secure funding, which has turned into another battle in the Arizona Legislature where some lawmakers fight to support bills that would allow funding, while others attempt to kill such bills. The struggle to study marijuana prevents us from gaining knowledge about its benefits as well as its potential dangers, and it seems in some weird, cyclical way that a lack of understanding is used to prevent more studies from being conducted. This, to me, is the greatest failure of drug policy in regards to marijuana research. It prevents the advance of knowledge when we need it. If scientists had the abilities to research as they should, with fewer loopholes, we would know so much more, and no longer be trapped in a smoke cloud of marijuana misinformation.

Research marijuana before doing specialized studies

CON BY Kasey Shores The Daily Wildcat


f you’ve ever looked at a vintage ad for cigarettes, you’ve likely seen a few featuring a doctor with a pack of smokes in his hand proclaiming his approval of X-brand, just like nine out of 10 other doctors. Historically, tobacco has brought a lot of revenue to the U.S., kept trade alive and could even be considered one of the foundations and reasons for the survival of the U.S. So back in the ’40s and ’50s, it was typical to smoke. Doctors recommended it, farmers sold it and everyone was happy — until people started dying. Lung cancer was the first really big, dangerous and recognized long-term effect of smoking cigarettes. Suddenly smokers were coughing, had a hard time breathing, were getting sick and,

yes, even dying. In 1964, the U.S. Public Health Service released its first report linking these ailments to tobacco. Now, just a few decades after that initial report from the Surgeon General’s Advisory Committee on Smoking and Health, cigarettes come with warning labels and children are taught in school that smoking will kill them. Too bad we made it legal before we knew the effects. Now it seems marijuana is America’s new tobacco. We did make tobacco legal and have kept it that way. Tobacco chewing and smoking is still a fairly common activity among Americans as a calming mechanism and an appetite controller. Still, we’ve made progress. Kids these days know how to say no to cigarettes. They don’t, however, know how to say no to marijuana. In fact, it feels like no one knows how to say no to marijuana; it is a lot like tobacco used to be. Doctors are recommending it. Kids are claiming it’s not addictive, just fun, and they can handle

themselves. People everywhere are lobbying for the legalization of marijuana because of its so-called health benefits. People have become so keen on the legalization of marijuana that no one is asking what the effects are. We only hear about the euphoria, a high and a good time. Doctors are saying that marijuana helps to ease the pain of cancers, which helps patients who were once bedridden eat and function. We don’t know much about marijuana, but people seem to like it. Research the long-term effects of marijuana. You’ll see a lot of conflicting opinions, often saying they’re not sure of the supposed possible benefits or that they outweigh the possible consequences, so there needs to be more testing. But that’s it. The idea of using marijuana as an actual, clinical drug is so new that no studies and no real information are available. No one really knows what it’s doing to our minds and bodies. But we’re sucking it into our lungs anyway. A UA researcher has been

trying to get a permit for a study on marijuana’s effects on posttraumatic stress disorder. The idea is that the calming effects of marijuana can be used as a treatment for PTSD and can help ease victims of this disorder into normal lives. It’s a nice thought, but what if something goes wrong? Do we really want our veterans, our victims or America’s most emotionally vulnerable to be the lab rats in a study? Or would we rather see studies done showing the effects, both long-term and short-term, of marijuana on our everyday, average citizens? We want to see their health problems, their emotional issues and their brain functions before we start seeing how it works for specialty cases. Until we know what the risks are, we shouldn’t be so quick to use it. We don’t want another tobacco on our hands. — Kasey Shores is a journalism sophomore. Follow her @kaseyshores

Police Beat BY Marissa mezzatesta The Daily Wildcat

Business deal

A non-UA-affiliate was arrested Wednesday at 11:37 p.m. for possession of marijuana and two warrants. University of Arizona Police Department officers were called to Coronado Residence Hall around 10:49 p.m. on Wednesday in reference to a suspicious person. The man was described as tall, thin and wearing a camouflage bucket hat. He said he saw someone he knew near the lobby entrance who let him in, and that he was there waiting to discuss a business he was starting with someone who lived in the hall. After identifying the man the officers discovered that he had two warrants out for his arrest. He was detained while both warrants were confirmed. The suspect was arrested and searched. When asked if he had anything dangerous on his person, he responded by telling the officers he had marijuana and a pipe in his backpack. The suspect claimed to have a medical marijuana card but did not have it with him. Due to the marijuana found and his warrant for narcotics the suspect was issued a six-month exclusionary order from the UA.

His cover of "get low" has over 4 million views on You Tube and he was featured on college humor and funnyordie.

I left my wallet at home

A UA student was arrested Wednesday for shoplifting at the UofA Bookstore. A staff member stated to a UAPD officer that he saw the subject on video, walk around the clothing section and pull out a purse from inside of her backpack and place two shirts in it. The officer spoke with the subject, who claimed to have left her wallet at home. The student admitted to stealing the two shirts and said her friend had asked her to buy her one. The student told the officer that when she told her friend that she did not have her wallet, the friend told her to just take the shirts. The student then placed the shirts in the purse and attempted to leave the bookstore. The student was issued an exclusionary order and escorted out.

No. 21 Arizona gymnastics ended its season with a sixth-place finish at the Baton Rouge Regional on Saturday. Arizona tallied a score of 194.825 in Baton Rouge, La., at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center, which did not qualify it for the NCAA Championships. “We are still recovering,” head coach Bill Ryden said. “It was a little bit of a letdown, but I guess that is why they call it sport.” Starting with their first rotation, the Gymcats earned a total score of 49.050 on floor. Leading them was junior Kristin Klarenbach who earned a 9.900 on floor, making it the ninth time this season she has earned that score or above. Junior Allison Flores added a 9.850 and freshman Mackenzie Valentin tallied a 9.825. Moving on to vault, sophomore Shelby Edwards earned a score of 9.925. Valentin scored a 9.850 and Flores scored a 9.800. Finishing off the rotation, junior Amber Wobma and freshman Gabby Laub added scores of 9.775 and 9.750, respectively. “I thought we went through the meet with nothing to lose and we might as well lay it all out on the line and we definitely did that for both floor and vault,” Klarenbach said. From that point forward, it was all downhill for the Gymcats. On bars, freshman Krysten Howard and Laub both counted falls to open up the rotation. “When the first three routines missed, it is the first for the two freshmen who lead off our bars,” Ryden said. “Even though they are freshmen, they have had really outstanding seasons. I would never have guessed that they would come off the bar; it was very much a shocker.” Freshman Selynna Felix-Terrazas led the bars’ rotation with a score of 9.850 and Edwards added a 9.725. Flores concluded the rotation with a 9.825. “We finished up solid,” Ryden said. “What happens when you have so many problems on an event, it takes a lot for those later competitors to not become overly conservative.” In the Gymcats’ last rotation, Wobma opened up the balance beam with a 9.750, and Flores followed with a 9.725. Sophomore Jessie Sisler added a score of 9.850, and Edwards matched it. Sophomore Lexi Mills and senior Shana Sangston earned scores of 9.825 and 9.750, respectively. “I will give real credit to the beam team,” Ryden said. “In a meet like this when you have those kind of errors, you know what it means and that you are not going to advance. But the beam team did not give up and all six of the girls stayed on and fought hard.” LSU, the regional host, earned first place for the meet with a score of 198.325, which is tied for the nation’s highest score this season. Stanford took second place with a score of 197.275. “The big thing that hurt us was obviously the three bar errors that pretty much sank our ship, and figuring out what why those happened,” Ryden said.

On Friday, Arizona sand volleyball lost 4-1 to the defending national champion, No. 5 Long Beach State (64), before ending its five-match losing skid with a 5-0 sweep over Irvine Valley College. In Irvine, Calif., in their loss to LBSU, the Wildcats dropped three straight matches before Arizona junior Allie Cook and freshman Penina Snuka defeated Joy Miley and Makayla Taylor of LBSU, 21-17, 21-15. Despite only winning one match, Arizona head coach Steve Walker said his players played very well in three out of the five contests against LBSU. Rather then being defeated, Walker added, they simply ran out of time and points. “When the game is played at the

highest level, the best teams and most experienced players play with great poise when falling behind,” Walker said. “I thought we did that much better [against LBSU], as our players believed in their ability to turn a match on its head at some point.” Playing against defending champions who have many returning players can be a daunting challenge, but Walker didn’t think the Wildcats, playing their first season of NCAA sand volleyball, were intimidated. “I didn’t sense the kind of anxiety playing LBSU that maybe the players felt heading into the matches against USC and Hawaii,” Walker said. “I really liked our approach this past weekend, as we had good focus from the opening serve.” Arizona (6-5) failed to exploit

its opponents’ weaknesses last weekend, resulting in two close defeats. But Walker said his players did a better job on Friday by recognizing the 49ers’ flaws and not playing into their strengths. “Entering the match against LBSU, we knew they played a very sound side-out game,” Walker said. “That strength can dictate how they control their opponents’ serves and make for an easy point in the sideout game. We recognized that by starting to take more chances with our serve, and that certainly helped draw us closer.” Walker said he was very pleased with Cook and Snuka, as they were the lone duos to come away undefeated at 2-0. “In the process they really made some terrific in-game adjustments with defensive positioning and

shot-making of their own,” Walker said. “They played together as a very steady and consistent tandem.” After the loss to LBSU, the Wildcats beat Irvine Valley College 5-0. It was a sort of homecoming for Cook, who played her first two seasons at the community college. “Following this weekend’s play, I told the team that we’ve reached a point where I feel we can compete and beat any mid-level program,” Walker said, “but I still want to make another jump this season and not wait for the next, and that jump begins with our approach in practice every single day.” Arizona will play in the two-day USA Volleyball Invitational in Los Angeles on Saturday. — Follow Tyler Keckeisen @tyler_keckeisen

Arizona wins first Pac-12 series at UU BY evan rosenfeld The Daily Wildcat

Arizona baseball seemed back on track in Sunday’s 5-2 victory at Utah. The Wildcats (14-19, 4-8 Pac12) won the series against the Utes after a shaky start on Friday in a 7-3 loss. Over the next two contests, Arizona outscored and out-hit the Utes 11-3 and 21-13, respectively, en route to seizing its first Pac-12 Conference series win of the year. “[The team] did what they know they needed to do and played good, clean baseball,” head coach Andy Lopez said. “We had good pitching all three games, with the exception of that one inning on Friday. Cody Hamlin was outstanding, Tyger Talley was really good and we had good relief out of the pen. We had timely hitting [on Saturday], came out swinging today and got some runs early.” Sophomore outfielders Zach

Gibbons and Scott Kingery combined to go 6-for-9 with three RBIs on Sunday. Kingery collected seven hits in 12 at-bats in the series against the Utes and leads the team with a .398 batting average over 33 games this season. Sophomore pitcher Tyger Talley (1-0) made his weekend rotation debut and efficiently worked seven innings while needing only 83 pitches to gain his first win. The Utes threatened late, but sophomore reliever Nathan Bannister pitched a scoreless eighth inning, allowing two hits and sophomore left-handed pitcher Cody Moffett closed the door on the Utes after entering with one out and runners on first and second in the bottom of the ninth. Moffett has now picked up two saves in as many games for the Wildcats. Sunday’s game could have very easily turned into one similar to Friday’s series opener, where Arizona squandered a late-

inning lead to ultimately lose 7-3 off a grand-slam home run. On Friday, after leading 3-2 going into the bottom of the eighth inning, Utah responded with a five-run onslaught and defeated Arizona to gain its first conference victory of the season. “We really played good baseball for three games and could have

very easily won all three, but I give credit to Utah for coming back in the eighth,” Lopez said. In Saturday’s game, the Wildcats captured their first victory in six chances on the road after plating five runs in the 10th to even the series. In the 10th, a pair of doubles by sophomore pinch-hitter Cody

Ramer and freshman right fielder Kenny Meimerstorf drove in three runs, while junior catcher Riley Moore added a two-RBI single. Junior pitcher Cody Hamlin turned out another strong outing. He pitched 8.2 innings and gave up one run off five hits while striking out two and walking one. Hamlin was relieved by freshman infielder/pitcher Bobby Dalbec (1-2), who got the win. Moffett came in and got the final out along with his first save of the season. “We did something I haven’t seen us do this year, and that’s play consistently good baseball for three days in a row,” Lopez said after Sunday’s contest. “It’s definitely a good sign.” Next up, Arizona takes on ASU in a single non-conference game on Wednesday evening at Packard Baseball Stadium in Tempe, Ariz. — Follow Evan Rosenfeld @EvanRosenfeld17


Women remain undefeated at home BY zoe wolkowitz The Daily Wildcat

Arizona women’s tennis improved to 13-0 at home with a pair of victories over the weekend. On Friday the Wildcats (16-3, 5-2 Pac12) beat No. 30 Utah 7-0. “That’s a solid win against a team that has had a good record,” said head coach Vicky Maes after Friday’s match. Senior Lacey Smyth and sophomore Shayne Austin beat Luisa Da Rosa and Sarah Richter 8-2, earning the first win of the match. “We knew today was going to be tough,” Maes said. “After last weekend, when we got the short end of the stick, it was nice to come back home and play a match like this.” On court three, seniors Susan Mc Rann and Akilah James rallied to win 8-4 and clinch the doubles point after losing games in the middle of the match. The Wildcats are 16-0 when starting matches by winning the doubles point. Arizona carried that through the rest of the match.

“I am proud of the way the girls stepped up in singles,” Maes said. “It didn’t look like we were going to lose in singles. The girls were fired up and we got off to a good start.” Smyth, who is ranked No. 95, won the No. 1 match 6-4, 6-0, and James clinched the match with a win on court four, 6-1, 6-0. “Kiki [James] had good energy and is starting to get her confidence back,” Maes said. Freshman Lauren Marker beat Callie Craig, 6-3, 6-3. Senior Kim Stubbe completed the sweep with a comeback victory, winning 6-7 (1-7), 6-0, 10-5 after losing the first set. “That is a real decisive win for us,” Maes said, “and a really important win for us, but we are not done.” On Saturday, Arizona beat No. 73 Colorado 5-2. Up next for the women is a trip to Los Angeles, at UCLA on Friday, and USC on Saturday. Arizona men’s tennis went 0-2 on its northwest road trip. The Wildcats lost 4-2 at Washington on Friday to open the trip.

“We came up a little short against a solid Washington team on the road,” head coach Tad Berkowitz said. “We are very close to getting over the hump.” Then on Saturday, despite senior Mario Urquidi’s convincing victory, the Wildcats lost to Oregon 4-1 in Eugene, Ore. Arizona earned its sole point in singles from Urquidi’s win over Daniel Sardu in straight sets 6-3, 6-4. The Ducks took a 1-0 early lead by winning the doubles point on courts one and three. Robin Cambier and Kevin Farin defeated Naoki Takeda and Sumeet Shinde 8-4, while Kieren Thompson and Trevor James lost to Daniel Sardu and Jayson Amos 8-3. Urquidi and Matt Dunn’s match on court two was abandoned at 7-7. Will Kneale, Thompson and Shinde lost early to clinch the win for Oregon. The men return home this weekend to host No. 2 USC on Friday and No. 3 UCLA on Sunday. — Follow Zoe Wolkowitz @zowolko

Who will take Letterman’s place? BY Taylor Armosino The Daily Wildcat


uring the taping of Thursday’s “Late Show With David Letterman,” the iconic late-night host announced his plans to retire after his contract expires in 2015. While the announcement was mildly unexpected, it was hardly shocking. Last year, the CBS host renewed his deal for just one year, increasing speculation that his career might be coming to an end soon. Earlier this year, Jimmy Fallon took over for Jay Leno on NBC and has earned great ratings. Fallon is much more appealing to young audiences than Letterman or ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel, and thus has beaten both badly in the ratings. Since Fallon took over for Leno, he’s averaged about 4.3 million viewers an episode, which trumps Letterman’s 2.85 million and Kimmel’s 2.7. Hollie McKay at Fox News cited a source that said the success of Fallon — a direct competitor — might have pushed Letterman out. “David is older now; he had heart surgery some time ago and sees both Jimmy Kimmel as well as the more formidable Jimmy Fallon now gaining on him,” McKay’s source said. “Fallon is getting record ratings, so Letterman will segue out while he’s still on top. It’s dignified. If Fallon weren’t so hot, he might have stuck around longer.”

‘The Late Show with David Letterman’ Facebook

David Letterman, current host of the “Late Show with David Letterman,” recently announced that he will be retiring next year. Former NBC chief Bob Wright told Bloomberg TV that for the first time a woman may take Letterman’s place, with Tina Fey being a top choice for his successor.

With Leno already gone, this decade will likely see a monumental changing of the guard in late-night television. Letterman’s departure is a huge industry shake-up. The 66-yearold has been on the airwaves for 32 years, the last 21 at CBS. He’s hosted nearly 6,000 episodes. Fallon, a well-rounded performer, has already moved away from Leno’s late-night purism. It’s been widely speculated that Letterman’s replacement will be someone who, like Fallon, can bring in bigger numbers with younger audiences. Stephen Colbert — who is just

behind Jon Stewart at Comedy Central — is a TV personality who already has a lot of popularity among the younger demographic. He excels at using the Internet, especially social media, to create viral content. Bill Carter of the New York Times reported last week that Colbert has been keeping tabs on the CBS situation. “Mr. Colbert has been aware of the coming change at CBS for some time,” Carter said. “His last few contracts at Comedy Central have been structured to match up with Mr. Letterman’s at CBS, according to a person with

knowledge of the deals who said he was not authorized to speak publicly about them.” Carter added that Colbert’s contract runs out at the end of 2014, which means he could negotiate with CBS. And while Colbert seems like a natural fit, CBS would make a much bigger splash by replacing Letterman with a female host. There are good ones to be had. Apart from Joan Rivers’ shortlived stint as “The Late Show” host in 1986, men have dominated the late-night landscape. That might be changing, as Ellen DeGeneres and Tina Fey are apparently on

CBS’ shortlist. Either would be a good fit. Fey’s success is on a steep upswing, though she may be reluctant to pigeonhole herself this early in her career. Taking over for Letterman would obviously stifle her ability to star in films and TV shows, among other things. However, her prowess as both a comedian and all-around performer could make her a latenight superstar. DeGeneres is a much more realistic choice, as she already hosts a daytime TV show. She’s also coming off a decent performance hosting the Oscars. Her brand is good right now. Letterman’s number two at CBS, Craig Ferguson, is thought of as a long shot for the job. The network considers his audience too narrow to compete with Fallon and Kimmel. CBS needs to hit a home run, and Ferguson would be a sacrifice. He’s fine where he is, but wouldn’t stand a chance in the competitive 11:35 p.m. time slot. If there’s anything to read from CBS’ interest in Colbert, Fey and DeGeneres, it’s that the network understands the direction latenight television is headed. NBC took a bit of a risk with Fallon, and it’s paying off big time. Late-night television is moving away from the format of old. CBS knows it needs to make a splash, or it’ll be drowned in the ratings.

‘Oklahoma!’ delivers a captivating show BY Joey Putrelo The Daily Wildcat


here weren’t many empty seats left in the UA’s Marroney Theatre for the final performance of the award-winning “Oklahoma!” on Sunday. Simply put, it’s because the Arizona Repertory Theatre’s version of the Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II musical was fantastic. The applause from the crowd throughout the performance made it clear that the show pleased all in attendance. The show was believable and the overall production quality was very professional. The settings, costumes and props gave the audience an authentic feel of what Oklahoma was like in the early 1940s. The lighting and stage crew also did a wonderful job, as every set transition and spotlight change was seamless.

Each performer had a strong stage presence and voice that was fitting for their part. Musical theater senior Michael Calvoni stole the show in his role as Curly, a local rancher after the heart of Laurey, played by music major Silvia Vannoy. Calvoni didn’t miss a single note, and the crowd gave his songs the most enthusiastic ovations. As Laurey, Vannoy was excellent in her portrayal of a innocent farm girl reluctant to fall for the charming Curly. Her voice was sweet and there was strong chemistry between her and Calvoni. While Calvoni and Vannoy pulled the audience members’ heartstrings, there was also plenty of comic relief in “Oklahoma!” Aunt Eller, played by musical theater major Kylie Arnold, had the crowd giggling through the entire show with her sarcastic humor. As Ali Hakim, musical theater major Hunter V. Hnat at times had everyone laughing out of

answers to your ques�ons about sex and rela�onships It is safe to become pregnant immediately after stopping oral contraceptives.

4 Questions About Birth Control Pills Q. Whenever I get my period, it’s sort of comforting, knowing that I’m not pregnant. My boyfriend and I use condoms to avoid pregnancy. What happens when you go on the pill? I heard that some women don’t have periods at all when they are on the pill. If I don’t have that monthly “sign,” how am I going to know that I’m actually not pregnant? A. It’s very likely you will still have a period while you are on the 4th week of pills in the pill pack. Your menstrual period may be shorter and/or lighter than it is now, or it may be longer and/or heavier. Everyone is different. What type of period you will have depends on the type and dosage of medication you are prescribed and how your body responds to it. Q. What about future fertility after being on the pill? A. The really good news is that oral contraceptives may improve future fertility by reducing the risk of uterine fibroids, ectopic pregnancies, ovarian & endometrial cancers, and endometriosis (all possible causes of infertility). Pills are a good option for most women who want to become

pregnant in the future. Some women may have a short delay (about 1 month) in becoming pregnant after stopping the pill when compared with attempting to get pregnant after not taking birth control pills. Q. I’m not very good about scheduling medicines. Do I have to take the birth control pill with food to avoid an upset stomach? A. Some women experience nausea when taking (or more likely when starting) oral contraceptives. Taking the pill during or right after eating can help to reduce most potential tummy trouble. Q. Will the pill affect my mood? A. In most women, there is no noticeable change in mood and frequently, mood changes are due to other life events. However, if you notice that you experience irritability, depression, or a reduced interest in sex, talk with your medical provider to discuss whether switching brands might help.

During the final scene of “Oklahoma!”, Curly (Michael Calvoni) and Laurey (Silvia Vannoy) say goodbye to Aunt Eller (Kylie Arnold), Will Parker (Ryan Kleinman) and Ado Annie (Lindsey Mony). The Arizona Repertory Theatre’s production of the Tony Award-nominated musical closed Sunday.

their seats with his quirkiness and dramatic Persian accent. The best female voice was musical theater major Lindsey Mony, who played Ado Annie, a free spirit who has trouble turning down men trying to woo her. When she sang “I Cain’t Say No,” the audience seemed captivated by her performance. Mony’s singing was powerful and consistently on key. Honorable mentions for strong



performance by a lead character go to musical theater major Ryan Kleinman, who played a phenomenal Will Parker, and musical theater major Micah Bond, who played an intimidating Jud. If you missed this performance, you missed out. — Follow Joey Putrelo @JoeyPutrelo
