DREAM aims to improve immigrants’ educations

Admissions office may raise GPA standards

by Kallie Red-Horse

by Abigail Ramirez

Over a dozen student groups organized a demonstration at Smith Plaza Wednesday in an effort to get student signatures in support of the DREAM Act. The Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act would grant young, undocumented immigrants the ability to further their education, so long as they have graduated from a U.S. high school and don’t have a criminal record. The Raza Graduate Students Association, El Centro de la Raza and the Lambda Theta Phi Latin Fraternity were among the groups at the demonstration. Christopher Ramirez, spokesman for RGSA, said as many as 65,000 U.S. high school graduates are undocumented, and it’s difficult for them to get post-graduation education. “They have limited opportunities for their future in terms of higher

The Office of Enrollment Management wants to raise requirements for admission. UNM’s current entrance requirements for freshmen are a 2.25 GPA and completion of 13 college preparatory classes. Terry Babbitt, associate director of the Office of Enrollment Management, presented a summary of proposed changes to the admissions standards at the Regents’ Academic, Student Affairs and Research Committee meeting yesterday. If approved by the Regents, Babbitt said, a plan to increase the required GPA to 2.5 and the number of college preparatory units to 16 would be implemented over a threeyear period. Babbitt said data from the last three years indicate students who took more college preparatory

According to ALI-PAC’s Web site, the organization is prepared to fight the bill every step of the way. “This legislation will harm American students and families while rewarding illegal aliens,” William Gheen, President of ALI-PAC said on the Web site. “It will cost taxpayers billions of dollars and provide

“Sardines in a tin” is not a phrase people want to associate with dorm life. But in August, 90 students moved in to triple-student dorm rooms. Now the Lobo Development Corporation and the Board of Regents are working to provide more on-campus housing for students, said Kim Murphy, UNM planning officer. The Master Plan includes a new residence hall for upperclassmen, which would likely be built on south campus, he said. “This is part of an overall strategy to add about 2,000 new beds to our inventory of oncampus housing,” he said. “We currently have about 2,400 beds, and we’re shooting to get somewhere around 4,500 total beds at the completion of this multi-year project.” The Regents’ Finance and Facilities Committee met Sept. 21 to vote on the Master Plan agreement with American Campus Communities, a student-housing developer. Murphy said there will be about 800 beds in phase one of the project, and the rooms will be mostly reserved for upperclassmen. The total project cost for phase one is about $40 million. “The first phase of housing that ACC designed is for upper division students, and they have proposed that we locate it on University property near main campus, as close as we can,” he said. “But it wouldn’t actually be on main campus, because that housing is reserved for freshmen and undergraduate students.” Steve Beffort, vice president for Institutional Support Services, said dorms at the

south campus site would be designed for upperclassmen. Beffort said the Regents should vote on approving the residence hall at their Sept. 29 meeting. “Hopefully they will approve the terms of the agreement, and then once they do that we’ll start negotiating exactly what that first phase would be,” he said. Murphy said putting the residence hall south of Cesar Chavez would help community development. “With the student population, it’s going to make commercial or retail services more feasible because you have a population that can use those services,” he said. Faculty Senate President Doug Fields said UNM should avoid sprawling development because there is still space near campus. “UNM should take a closer look at using the space on the southwest corner of Lomas and University for the phase one development,” Fields said in an e-mail. “The land there is owned by both UNM and the Sandia Foundation, and some discussion should take place with them about using this land.” Murphy said the opening of a residence hall has to coincide with the new school year, so it must get started as soon as possible. “The timing is critical for these housing projects. It can only be opened in August of a year,” he said. “In order to hit an August 2011 opening, they’ve really got to start construction in April of 2010.” Fields said the Faculty Senate passed a resolution to delay the voting on the Master Plan until the UNM community and neighborhood associations have more time to express their concerns.

High school teacher stabbed in classroom by Linda Stewart Ball The Associated Press

TYLER, Texas — A special-education teacher who had a passion for music was fatally stabbed Wednesday morning in a Texas high school classroom, and police took a 16-year-old student into custody. Todd R. Henry, 50, worked with students at John Tyler High School who were either emotionally or behaviorally challenged, according to his older brother, Jody Henry. “He loved it,” the elder Henry said. “He told me it was his calling. He had never been happier than

when working with these kids.” District Superintendent Randy Reid said the male suspect approached his teacher about 8:50 a.m. and stabbed him in the neck with a sharp object. A teacher’s aide and two other students were in the classroom, and the aide subdued the suspect before calling district police, Reid said. Reid said the student had been in and out of the district “a couple of times,” but declined to provide further details, citing privacy laws. “It is our understanding at this

another big incentive for people to illegally immigrate to the United States.” Student Oscar Maldonado said the criticism stems from a misunderstanding. “People are scared of it because they think that it applies to everyone, every single immigrant, but if you read the document you realize that it is actually very specific,” he said. Student Julie Merler-Smith said that she is in favor of the DREAM Act thanks to the demonstration at the Plaza. “I like that the act is supporting kids that have grown up here and are law-abiding and want to make

Maldonado said passing the DREAM Act would improve America’s standing in the rest of the world. “There are intelligent students here who could be the future doctors, future nurses that are here learning, but once they are done they cannot apply what they have learned in a job,” Maldonado said. “The students walking by are the future. These are who the senators and representatives are here to represent. The people walking here — this is what America is.”

LETTERS Design to blame for death of birds near George Pearl Hall Editor, September is a time of bird migration in New Mexico. On Saturday morning I came to George Pearl Hall to study. While trying to enter the building downstairs, I noticed five dead warblers: one MacGillivray’s Warbler, three Wilson’s Warblers and one Yellow-rumped Warbler. They had flown into the large windows on the south side of the building. These species are declining due to habitat destruction and global warming. George Pearl Hall doesn’t have such great architecture for our native migrating warblers. Sam Karns Daily Lobo reader

Smoking ban needs to be enforced for others’ health Editor, Since the Lobo has been discussing the issue of smoking on campus recently, I wanted to bring up a few additional points. First, smokers are not respecting the “no smoking on campus” policy. There are plenty of smokers lighting up cigarettes as they are walking to class, walking along Smith Plaza, and standing outside their dorms — all in non-smoking spots. Second, there is no reprimand for a smoker breaking the non-smoking policy. It is not fair to the campus that these violations go unnoticed and unpunished, yet if a car is parked in a place that doesn’t coincide with the car’s permit the tickets are issued immediately, and the same goes for parking meters. Parking should be free and it isn’t. Yet breaking and violating the non-smoking policy is? Third, secondhand smoke is not the only concern for some students, such as myself. I have an intense allergy to cigarette smoke. When I’m around the horrid stuff, I literally cannot breathe, and it immediately starts affecting my throat — it has caused me to develop pneumonia in the past. Isn’t being able to breathe and be well instead of suffocating and becoming sickly most important for the student body? These smokers think they have the right to smoke, and they do, but not at the expense of someone else’s health. Everyone has a natural right to be able to breathe oxygen and not get sick from polluted air. Smoking is a privilege, not a natural right. There’s a lot more about this issue than just designated smoking areas and secondhand smoke. There’s more that needs to be said about respect for others, obeying the rules and policies and being reprimanded for breaking all policies and not just a select few, etc. These issues, along with the others that have been brought up, need to be discussed. Students like me are paying tuition just like everyone else, yet we have to watch where we go in order to protect ourselves and almost live as prisoners, while the smokers get away with their antics. What’s wrong with this picture? The smokers may think it an inconvenience to walk to the designated areas, but isn’t it more inconvenient for those of us who can’t even walk to class because a smoker is walking the same path we are and making it difficult to breathe? Which is the bigger evil? This smoking issue needs to get under control — now. Brenda Stephens UNM student

LETTER Clouds of smoke a problem on ‘smoke-free’ campus Editor, I was thrilled when I first heard about plans to make UNM a smoke-free campus. I anticipated the delight of being able to smell flowers and trees, being free to enjoy a meal by the Duck Pond or outside the SUB and free from worrying about whether, or when, all that secondhand smoke will trigger an asthma attack or make me sick. I was OK with the compromise of initially having designated smoking areas because they would dwindle to none after five years. Nearly two months into having a so-called tobacco-free campus, I feel like I’ve been tricked — tricked into believing UNM would become smoke free. Although I have to admit that smoking isn’t as prevalent on campus as it was prior to the new policy taking affect, I feel no less ill-treated by on-campus smokers than I was before the ban. My regular route onto campus takes me through the Cornell entrance with its inevitable gang of defiant smokers on the steps

of George Pearl Hall. If I choose to park my bicycle near there, I’m met with smokers loitering around the Bookstore’s bike rack area. This is all understandable since there are no “no smoking” signs in sight, and there are two obvious, large ashtrays in the immediate vicinity. On my regular route from the GPSA office to the Duck Pond, Scholes Hall or north campus, I’m now forced to traverse a group of smokers on either side of the pedestrian way between Zimmerman Library and the steps leading to the SUB. This is understandable because it took five weeks into the ”ban” before a “designated smoking area” sign appeared near Zimmerman Library. By then, smokers, who only knew “east of Zimmerman Library,” had already called dibs on the whole region. Whereas before I had to deal with the smoke from an individual or small group of smokers, now I have to deal with large clusters producing large, concentrated plumes of the foul-smelling carcinogenic stuff. Evidently UNM sign-makers and signplacers have more clout than the UNM Smoke-Free Environment Committee. Aside from my personal experience, I hear from friends, Graduate and Professional

DL

Student Association representatives and the Daily Lobo that the smoking area outside of Northrop Hall immediately became a problem. It seems the concentrated smoke was being inhaled by Northrop students making their way into the building and passersby along that congested pedestrian corridor. More importantly, the smoke gets into the front door and the ventilation system and makes people sick. This is so wrong on so many levels that I’ll just cut to the quick: Smoke entering a building is a violation of New Mexico state law and should have been prohibited after the first complaint. Let’s worry about a replacement location later and shut this location down now. This issue was brought up at the Sept. 12 GPSA Council meeting. GPSA representatives argued between moving smoking areas to reduce their impact on student health to pushing for a complete, fully enforced ban now. Nobody argued that there should be no smoking ban. A GPSA resolution is being drafted that will likely pass at our Oct. 3 meeting. I hope UNM will act sooner. Danny Hernandez GPSA Council Chair

courses were more likely to complete their degree plan. In the first year of implementing the plan, students would need a 2.3 GPA with 14 college preparatory units to be admitted. The second year, students would need a 2.4 GPA with 15 college preparatory units, and the third year, students would need a 2.5 GPA with 16 college preparatory units. If students don’t meet the new standards, they would be admitted to UNM branch campuses and other community colleges like CNM, Babbitt said. Regent Carolyn Abeita said students can adapt to the higher standards. “I think when you do set the bar a little higher, everybody learns that they have to jump that much higher,” she said. Maria Probasco, Parent

Association president, said the plan could help parents know what classes their child should take to do well in higher education. “I bet this will help parents understand what the requirements are and to tell parents — not during their junior or senior year of their child’s education, but early on — to put them in the right track,” she said. “That way they have taken all the necessary courses, so once they are here they have a better chance of succeeding.” Babbitt said that if the standards aren’t raised, some students will be discouraged from applying to UNM. “We don’t want to position ourselves out of the running for qualified students,” he said. “We don’t want to make ourselves where New Mexico State would be a better choice than us.” UNM’s current admission requirements are below those of re-

gional institutions (see box). Babbitt said that, according to data from the past three years, increasing the GPA requirement from 2.25 to 2.3 would have excluded about 31 students each year. An increase from 2.25 to 2.5 would have excluded about 113 students each year. Abeita said a draft of the proposed changes needs to be available to the public. “I think this is a very important change and we do need to get as much input and comment as possible,” she said. “I think this affects not just our community, but the broader state community. We need to give parents the opportunity to comment on this.” Babbitt said a draft of the document outlining the proposed changes should be posted on the UNM Web site by October.

time that there was nothing in the classroom that incited this situation,” Reid said. “It was a random act.” The high school was locked down after the stabbing and students were eventually sent home for the day, according to a statement on the district’s Web site. Reid said classes would resume Thursday. Jan Henry, the teacher’s wife of 10 months, said he had been injured by a student before. Todd Henry missed the first two weeks of school recovering from shoulder surgery after he broke up a fight at school last year, his wife said. “He worked in a prison for 10 years. Do you think this man was afraid? Get real,” Jan said in a telephone interview from her Tyler home, surrounded by close friends and family. “We’d be eating out and a student would walk up and shake his hand. He’d look at me and smile and say, ‘That’s what it’s all about.’” Police did not offer a motive behind the stabbing and referred further questions to Angela Jenkins, a spokeswoman for the high school. Jenkins did not immediately return messages left by The Associated Press. The stabbing stunned the tightknit community of 110,000, located about 90 miles southeast of Dallas.

“It’s quite a shock,” said Tyler Communications Director Susan Guthrie, who received a text message from the police chief soon after the stabbing. “Everybody was very shocked and saddened by the news.” Tyler Mayor Barbara Bass interrupted the morning City Council meeting to observe a moment of silence, Guthrie said. The school board planned an emergency meeting Wednesday afternoon. Henry, a native of Chicago, grew up in Huntsville, Texas, after his family moved there in 1973. He was a confirmed bachelor until he married Jan, also an educator. Henry earned a degree in psychology with an emphasis in music therapy, working for at least a decade as a music therapist, mainly with inmates in the state’s prison system, his wife said. He was self-taught on several string instruments, played in several bands on the weekends and did some studio work. “He was an accomplished, well-known and respected guitarist,” Jody Henry said. “He could play anything.” On his Web site, Todd Henry gave an inkling of how powerful he believed music to be. “I know that music can be a direct link to feelings and passions and is therefore a powerful tool,” he wrote.

Playing Gods $39.95 www.PlayingGods.com

Religion by Chris Quintana Daily Lobo

A game where Buddha, Jesus, Moses, Kali and an unnamed Muslim figure battle against one another might be considered anti-religious, but Ben Radford, creator of “Playing Gods,” disagrees. “I am not making fun of religion or people who are religious, but of the mindset that there is only one true path,” Radford said. “If religious wars were fought with cards and dice, we would all be in a better place.” “Playing Gods,” released a year ago and retailing for $39.95, began as a pipe dream for Radford, who grew up on board games like “Risk” and “Dungeons and Dragons.” However, he decided to make the game a reality after hearing so many reports about religious strife.

“When I grew up, I had friends of all different faiths and I thought nothing of it,” Radford said. “The idea that a person would be upset at someone because he or she didn’t believe the same thing to me is completely bizarre.” Game play is similar to a theological version of “Risk,” Radford said. Each player chooses a religious figure and receives a group of followers. The goal is to eliminate all the followers of opposing religions by using acts of wrath, such as plagues, or conversion, such as miracles. Radford said his initial idea was to have ancient religious figures as characters in the game, but he decided to choose deities that are more relevant to today’s issues. “I wanted to update the games and include the real religions,” he said. “People aren’t killing each other over Zeus, people are killing each other Hinduism, Christianity and Islam. I had a couple of people say ‘You don’t want to put the real religions in there.’ I said, ‘I am not

going to give them a free pass.’” The game features prominent religious figures in violent caricatures, such as a Jesus figurine wielding a crucifix like a club. The figures serve to further satirize the idea of one true religion, Radford said. Radford said he is an agnostic. ”I went out of my way not to intentionally provoke anybody,” Radford said. “It’s a satire.” Radford said players are not limited to the major religious figures that come with the game. He also included a blank playing piece and a set of stickers for various other icons, such as Beer, Oprah and the Almighty Dollar. “The rules are not specific to the main religions, so you can be anything,” Radford said. “I have people as Darth Vader or Mad Max. If people say, ‘Well, I am offended by these figures,’ then don’t use them. Use something else, make up your own.” Radford said when he was designing the

game he wanted something that would satirize the major world religions, but would also be fun to play. “Playing Gods,” to Radford’s surprise, has received mostly positive reviews in its first year. Mike Reiss, writer and producer for the hit TV series “The Simpsons,” praised the game’s wit and design. “It’s smart and funny and so handsomely mounted,” he said in a review on the game’s Web site. Radford said he is surprised by all the positive feedback and just laughs off negative critiques. “A lot of people won’t touch it,” he said. “On the back I have a satire hazard: ‘Contains satire: Keep away from easily offended fundamentalists.’ My position is if you’re an easily offended fundamentalist, you should have read the warning.”

A bachelor on an 80s dating show leans coolly in a denim jacket and vneck shirt, his mullet reflecting the bright stage lights. “I’m looking for the goddess,” he says, a rose held daintily at his side. “Are you the goddess?” The Found Footage Festival is coming to the Southwest Film Center in the SUB on Sunday, showcasing clips from this 1987 dating show and some 50 other bizarre videos. The Festival’s creators — Nick Prueher and Joe Pickett — have written for the “Onion News Network,” “The David Letterman Show” and “The Colbert Report.” Prueher said the duo sat through hundreds of hours of footage in search of comedic gems for this collection. “I wouldn’t wish it on anybody to watch what we had to watch to put this show together, but we’re willing to suffer for other people’s entertainment,” he said. Prueher said the festival was born in 1991 when he found a training video for McDonald’s custodians. “It was pretty blatant corporate indoctrination but dressed up as fun,” he said. “They had a plot to it and they had an overly perky crew trainer and a really stupid trainee. We sort of thought there was some sexual tension between the two of them, too.” Prueher said he and Pickett began regularly showing the film and building their collection. “It became this cult thing. There was nothing going on in our hometown on a Friday, so we’d have people over to my parents’ house, and we’d

watch this stupid training video and make fun of it,” he said. “That was sort of the genesis — the thing that made us think that if there are videos this ridiculous right there in break rooms collecting dust, then there’s got to be more stuff out there waiting to be discovered,” he said. The footage comes primarily from VHS tapes and a few DVDs, and includes anything from Saturday morning cartoons to interactive VCR games, Prueher said. “This is the footage that would otherwise be ignored and discarded, footage that people don’t usually deem worth hanging on to,” he said. “It’s a nice little snapshot of what we were like, and not just the cleaned up Oscar-winning films from 1985. These are the relics that people don’t want you to see but say more than those really polished pieces of art.” Prueher and Pickett now have a knack for finding strange videos, Prueher said. Or, at least they know how to find comedic value in otherwise mundane footage, rifling through tape after tape to guide audiences through a treasure trove of film. “I think that Joe and I are uniquely suited to doing this because we have an incredibly high tolerance for stupid things,” he said. “You need

Friday - Saturday, ÂĄGlobalquerque! at the National Hispanic Cultural Center

â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Indian Ocean plays a mĂŠlange of familiar classical, western and Indian folk music that creates its own genre. The band plays Saturday at Globalquerque in Mayor Plaza at 10:20 p.m. The band consists of guitarist Susmit Sen, percussion player Asheem Chakravarty, bassist Rahul Ram and drummer Amit Kilam. All band members are born and raised in India. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In India, each of the districts has their own extremely diverse, rich folk

music with their own dialects,â&#x20AC;? Kilam said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all grew up with it, so it was only natural that we would incorporate it into our music.â&#x20AC;? The band started in 1990, but Sen and Chakravarty knew each other years before. Kilam said the band used to practice at Senâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home, and it was his father who suggested the band be called Indian Ocean. The name sounded so appealing that it stuck. Since then, the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had great success, going so far as creating

the soundtrack for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Black Friday,â&#x20AC;? a film about the 1993 bombings in Mumbai, India. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I liked about this project was the freedom to write and sing what we wanted and not so much what the director or producer wanted,â&#x20AC;? Kilam said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We enjoyed this experience because we were able to explore new boundaries for a change.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The nyckelharpa is a cross between a fiddle and a keyboard. You can see Olov Johansson play the Swedish instrument with his band, Väsen, at Globalquerque on Friday at 7:40 p.m. in the Albuquerque Journal Theater. Johansson said his uncle introduced him to the nyckelharpa and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been hooked on it ever since. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s held on a strap around your neck and is played with a short bow,â&#x20AC;? he said in an e-mail. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There

is a row of keys for each melody string â&#x20AC;Ś (and) sympathetic strings, 12 of them, that ring along with the notes I play with the bow and creates a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;spacey soundâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a transparent bowed tone with a natural reverb to it.â&#x20AC;? Johansson said he and his bandmates are childhood friends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mikael Marin and I had been visiting and learned from Curt and Ivar Tallroth, two of the old leading fiddlers in the area, so we had

the same style from the start,â&#x20AC;? Johansson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Väsen started you could say in 1989 when Roger and I were up in RĂśros in Norway in a winter market that attracts a lot of traditional musicians to come and jam and dance.  There we tried to play nyckelharpa and a 12-stringed guitar for the first time and the improvised jam almost turned into a concert.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mamek Khadem, an Iranian singer, hopes to spread culture with her fusion-based music. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do want my music to reflect my desire to reach out to other cultures and other countries and trying to find the similarities in terms of our music and culture,â&#x20AC;? Khadem said. Khadem, formerly the lead singer of Axiom of Choice, will perform Saturday at the Albuquerque Journal Theater starting at 7:40 p.m.  The songwriter said her music is

rooted in her Iranian heritage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My approach to my music is not 100 percent traditional,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I use my training in classical Iranian vocals, but I use my own understanding of music. I sort of have a fusion version of the Persian music.â&#x20AC;? Khadem said she plans to introduce some cross-cultural pieces, such as Armenian and Turkish tunes. In addition to vocals, Khadem also plays the daf, a large drum with small cymbals around its edge.

Three other musicians will play percussion and electric guitar and do backup vocals to accompany Khadem at the Globalquerque performance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really think for me itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more inspiring to do a live performance,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each night we do it, it could be completely different from the last night. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never going to be repeated in the same way.â&#x20AC;?

Finally, Prueher said audience members can donate strange films to the show, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be happy to allow Albuquerque to get in on the action. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never been to Albuquerque

before, so if anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s found a video there or they have a local public access station that has a great show, we usually love people to bring those things to the show,â&#x20AC;? he said.
