‘Barn Party’ hearing, appeal concludes; consequences effective immediately By Bob Galuski News Editor | @DEN_News

Eastern concluded its review of the “Barn Party” incident involving Phi Beta Sigma fraternity, and a suspension of the fraternity until the spring semester of 2019 will be upheld and effective immediately. Pat Early, the assistant vice president of communications, marketing and brand strategies, sent out a press release Thursday saying the recommendation of the Student Standards Board that the

fraternity did violate the Student Conduct Code has been upheld and the fraternity has been suspended until the conclusion of the spring semester of 2019. The release also stated that at the end of the suspension the fraternity could request consideration for reinstatement. In addition to the suspension, the fraternity must complete 300 hours of community service in Charleston and pay restitution of $2,000 to Charleston. The review of the “Barn Party” incident includ-

ed a hearing by the Student Standards Board and a subsequent appeal. President Bill Perry said in the release the full appeals process has now been completed and the fraternity has received official notice of its suspension, which takes effect immediately. “The vast majority of our students work hard in their academic programs and participate in the community in a very positive fashion,” Perry said in the release. “But, occasionally we see behavior which we cannot condone and will not tolerate. When that happens, we have a responsibility to

take firm action in response.” The conclusion of the appeals process comes a few days after a petition for an appeal of the suspension began circulating online, through The Petition Site website. In the petition, which, as of press time had 834 electronic signatures, the authors called for an appeal on the grounds of the sanction being inappropriate for the violation.


Pemberton frightens for philanthropy

By Jarad Jarmon Student Governance Editor | @DEN_News

Students go through haunted house for Halloween Students and others around the community spilled outside of the Pemberton Hall Main Entrance in order to encounter monsters at the haunted house Thursday. The Pemberton Hall Council wanted to stray away from the ghost stories, which surrounded the building allure, but nevertheless succeeded in striking fear in some of those who took a tour through the basement. In groups of six, students who participated after signing a waiver would first go through the elevator doors leading them through the main hall of the basement, which was filled with blood-crazed butchers, terribly-unfunny clowns and recently-arising zombies. The tour would roughly take four to five minutes to go through and make it to the end. Some students like Jada Swendsen, a sophomore family and consumer sciences major, found the elevator ride down to be the scariest part of the entire tour. The basement itself added to some of the allure for the haunted tour. Swendsen said she found the basement added to the scenes. Clowns got the best of some students like Megan Maybell, a junior family and consumer sciences major, who said the clowns got her to scream easily. “I just don’t do clowns,” Maybell said. Jordan Brown, a senior family and consumer sciences major, who helped in planning the haunted house, said it took roughly seven hours across three days to set up the scenes.

Students wait in an elevator with an elevator attendant wearing a metallic skull mask to descend into the Pemberton basement for Pit of Despair Thursday. Participants had to pay $2 or donate a canned food for admittance.

The Pemberton Resident Assistants helped out in the basement, playing as the clowns, butchers and zombies. The clowns would be popping balloons while the zombies would be rattling chains and stomping on floor boards to instill fear into those who would pass by. Students would pay $2 or a can of nonperishable food. The proceeds from the night would all go to the Public Action to Deliver Shelter in Mattoon.

The shelter operates as an emergency shelter and a soup kitchen for those who do not have homes. Paul Rilett, the executive director of the shelter, said he hoped to see more canned vegetables because they are hard to come by. The money raised will go toward their capital building campaign. “Right now, we a currently trying to work on getting a new building,” Rilett said. “We only have 16 beds, and this year we have had to turn away a bunch of families because we

don’t have the space.” He said he was excited because after 30 minutes, the people handing out safety waivers ran out of the 150 waivers they had on the desk. Jarad Jarmon can be reached at 581-2812 or

CPD issues report of counterfeit bills By Robert Downen Administration Editor | @DEN_News

The Charleston Police Department is currently investigating multiple reports of counterfeited money throughout the Charleston area over the last several days. The bills, which are primarily $10s and $20s, have been circulating through businesses throughout Charleston this

week. Lt. Brad Oyer of the Charleston Police Department said he could not confirm exactly how many bills had been retrieved, though he said the amount indicate there are likely more circulating throughout the community. Oyer said his department was very committed to apprehending the person responsible for the forgeries, noting the severity of the crime often necessitates

involvement from the Secret Service. “Our goal is to make the community aware of the problem,” he said. “This is a very serious crime, and we are looking into it very seriously.” According to a press release issued by the Charleston Police Department Thursday, the bills can be identified by their lack of reflective characteristics, as well as other discrepancies that have not been released at this time.

“The most obvious indication these bills are counterfeit is the Lady Liberty torch and the number ‘10’ on the 10 dollar bills, and the eagle and number ‘20’ on the 20 dollar bills are supposed to have a reflective characteristic,” the press release stated. “These reflective areas are generally located on the front of the bill toward the bottom right side. These reflective characteristics do not show up on the counterfeit bills.”

The police department has encouraged all individuals and local businesses to pay special attention to cash payments, as well as to mark any bills to ensure their authenticity. Those who find counterfeit money are encouraged to keep the bill and report it to the Charleston Police, as well as try to remember any descriptive information of the individual. MONEY, page 5

By Alex Seidler Staff Reporter | @DEN_News Night assistants and their supervisors take watch over residence halls from midnight until 4 a.m. to make sure the halls stay peaceful and safe. They offer assistance to students throughout the night. Night Assistant Coordinator Abby Ford said the night assistants are the extra set of eyes that look over the residence halls. “We sit in the halls waiting to be the proactive resource for students at night,” she said. “We watch over the halls and make sure nothing gets damaged.” Ford said night assistants make sure students who are walking around at night are fine, and they might even talk with those passing by. They interact with residents as they come and go, saying hello and ask how their night is going. “A night assistant sits in a designated location in each residence hall,” Ford said. Shavon Goner, a sophomore kinesiology and sports studies major, said the hours she works gives her time to catch up with her studies. “Being a night assistant, I get extra time to do homework, and it is nice to have students come to me as a resource,” Goner said. As coordinator, Ford is the one who makes the schedules for all the workers and oversees them to make sure they are doing their job. Matthew Horacek, a sophomore history major, said he finds much to appreciate about the night assistant position. “It can be fun, exciting and unpredictable,” he said. “You get a good sense that you are doing something good for the school as well. Just knowing things are safe, and this is kind of preparation to the next part of my life as a police officer.” However, like any job, he shares some negative effects of the position as well. “I do lose some sleep and some nights can be rougher than ever,”

he said. “Also, when there is a serious situation, it can be dangerous for me.” Horacek became a night assistant this semester and he said a major part of his job was to make sure students get to their residence halls safely. “If someone comes in late at night and they are tipsy, I have to help them get to their dorm safely,” he said. “If someone falls asleep in the lobby, I will wake them up and tell them they need to go to their dorm. I’m usually doing my homework or getting other stuff done when nothing is happening.” The night assistants answer to their supervisors whenever they have a question about something, but it is their responsibility to report to them about it. “They visit each of the night assistants for a few minutes at a time to check in on how their night is going,” Ford said. “They also complete continuous outside rounds to keep

an eye on the exterior of buildings and throughout campus.” The supervisors also get involved when a situation escalates out of the night assistants' control. “They usually have a good sense of what they are doing,” Horacek said. “There hasn’t been a time where they didn’t know what to do.” Kali Drews, a senior communication studies major, is one of the supervisors on campus and she shares some positive and negative aspects of the job. “I was a night assistant, and then I eventually became a supervisor,” she said. “I like the aspect of socializing with the staff. One thing I had to overcome was learning how to implement different policies.” Brianna DeMarco, a junior special education major, is also one of the supervisors who is usually in charge of checking the North and South quad. “At night, (supervisors) disperse to

oversee each quad,” Demarco said. Ford also said the night assistants and supervisors are selected each semester and they usually change about once or twice because of scheduling conflicts or some other problem. There are a total of 24 night assistants along with six supervisors that facilitate all the halls and Greek Court throughout the campus at night. “For night assistants, I look for students that are confident and outgoing enough to be willing and able to interact with residents as they come and go from the residence halls,” Ford said. “I look for night assistants that exhibit strong leadership characteristics, a strong knowledge of the program and a desire to do more within the program.” Alex Seidler can be reached at 581-2812 or

Student-directed plays to reflect relatable issues By Paul Durante Staff Reporter | @DEN_News Trying their hands at directing, three senior theatre arts majors will bring to life three one-act plays from Tennessee Williams. Each of the plays that are to be brought to life on the Eastern stage are works of the playwright Tennessee Williams and will feature an ensemble of eight actors who will perform in all three productions. For Richard Gus, a theatre arts major, this marks his directorial debut, and said there have been new difficul-

ties he faced leading a production. “My biggest challenge has been reassuring myself that I have the knowledge and confidence to direct people,” Gus said. He chose to direct the play, “These are the Stairs You Got to Watch.” The play is set in New Orleans in the year 1945 and takes place in a declining opera house. Bill Stinde, a theatre major, is also making his directorial debut, and for his play, he chose to direct “Pink Bedroom.” “It’s not told from a typical point of view. There is a surprise,” Stinde

said. The story takes place in St. Louis in 1926, but the time period and location are inconsequential, Stinde said the focus is on the characters. “It’s the story of these two imperfect beings,” Stinde said. The third play, “The Long Goodbye,” is directed by Miranda Buob, a theatre arts and English major. The play takes place outside of St. Louis in the year 1938, in a lowerclass suburb. According to Buob, the story is about moving forward, letting go of the past and learning from decisions.

This is Buob’s second time directing, and noted her biggest challenge this time around was stepping outside of her comfort zone. Despite the challenges of directing, all three of the student directors said they were excited by the opportunity. “These plays will show that no matter what the time period, the issues are still the same,” Buob said. The shows will take place on a singular rotating set with slight modifications that will make it suitable for all three of the plays. William Richardson, a senior theatre arts major, is in charge of set de-

sign for these productions. “The idea is to make a world that looks perfect for these plays,” Richardson said. The three one-act plays, directed by Gus, Stinde and Buob, will be Nov. 15 – 17. The Nov. 15 and 16 shows will be at 7:30 p.m. in the Black Box Theatre of the Doudna Fine Arts Center. The Nov. 17 show will be at 2 p.m., also in the Black Box Theatre of the Doudna.

Civilized is just a word: a look at N.A. History The Trail of Tears is one of the most devastating periods of Native American culture in history. It was a time of great turmoil and President Andrew Jackson is almost wholly responsible for the treatment of Native Americans in the early 1830s, forcibly relocating hundreds of thousands of Native Americans. This is just one of many terrible, but important events throughout relations with Native Americans. It is important when looking at the Native American culture to understand that many of the freedoms that several other races in the United States have had and still have were almost completely stripped from Native Americans even starting in the early 1700s, late 1600s when European settlers first set foot on this continent. America was more or less an agricultural haven for the Native American and while warring Indian tribes did exist, more conflict erupted between European settlers than any other blood feud that previously existed. The idea that these indigenous peoples were uncivilized is an abstract notion that cannot be supported as a legitimate means to pacify a unique culture and experience. Even today, while many Native Americans still live on reservations, they are all regarded as cultural treasures having originally conceived an oral culture of telling stories and passing those stories down through generations. In several international conflicts, most notably World War II, their use of Indian languages (via Navajo code talkers) was incredibly important to mask our objectives and strategies from enemy combatants. More importantly, the study of the Native American culture through films has enabled a resurgence in environmental awareness and reconnecting a relationship in our modern day and age with the wilderness and its natural surroundings. Films including “Pocahantas” and “Avatar” have been said to include lots of imagery reminiscent of this culture and can further educate our youth the importance of other general concepts such as family and peace. While there are certainly aspects of all cultures which can and most likely will seem foreign to us, it is important as Americans to express gratitude and interest in these cultures which make up the multi-cultural experience in our country and further inspire us in everything from environmental awareness to foreign policy regarding indigenous peoples as well as immigration reform.

The true tale behind the False Hare

The curtains are drawn back, the music begins to play and the show opens. Usually he would show up someplace in the woods, in a nice relaxing armchair, several feet underground. Though occasionally, he would challenge someone to a test of wits and meet them, burrowing underneath the ground. Hunters, cowboys, opera singers, ducks, he would best them all; with a charismatic grin, a dash of self-awareness, and a carrot, followed by the words: “Eh, what’s up doc?” Even now, I still remember a myriad of adventures of the sensational, fantastic, outrageous character of Bugs Bunny. Arguably the greatest “Looney Tunes” character of all time, (though not the first, Porky Pig alone holds that honor) there is no doubt in my mind that as a young boy, I needed that comedic caricature of a rabbit as an informal guide to my future endeavors as class clown and later as a comedian. But 50 years ago, Warner Bros. almost did away with that “wascaly wabbit” and produced what seemed like the last bugs bunny cartoon ever in the short, “False Hare.” For 16 years, there were no new cartoons produced involving Bugs Bunny or using the oh-so-familiar intro and end

Sean Copeland credit from the original “Looney Tunes” shorts. This means that for a whole generation of kids there was no Bugs Bunny. Oh sure, syndication was still around, but nothing like waiting for that new cartoon every Saturday morning eating Lucky Charms cereal with a remote in one hand fervently hoping for some new spontaneous eruption of jokes and laughter to occur. In addition, as this was presented as a short as well as Bugs’ last appearance, Bugs didn’t make a film appearance until 1990. Moreover, this was an end to the Golden Age of Animation, a period of more than 30 years showcasing Walt Disney’s “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Popeye and even Tom & Jerry. This

was so many children’s childhoods and yet in an instant it almost went away forever, eliminating what was Mickey Mouse’s role to Disney as Bugs Bunny’s role to Warner Bros. But it didn’t happen. Bugs Bunny came back in more cartoons starting in 1980 and went on to be included in the half cartoon/cgi-live action “Looney Tunes” feature film “Space Jam” starring Michael Jordan and Bill Murray. This was always something that had been ingrained me since I was a little kid. My father explained what the future would remember of the past regardless of politics, famine, or religion: “People will always remember The Beatles, James Bond, and Bugs Bunny.” So in honor of Bugs Bunny, we remember what has come in the world of entertainment thanks to his sarcasm, physical humor, and occasional crossdressing; and remember his legacy among animation and culture throughout history. As Porky Pig would say, “That’s All Folks!” Sean Copeland is a senior journalism major. He can be reached at 581-2812 or

‘Beatlemania,’ still strong 50 years later

Fifty years ago today, a man stood waiting on his flight in London’s Heathrow airport. Hearing loud screams, he turned and was amazed to see hundreds of people storming the tarmac screaming, shouting, and waiving their hands. Alarmed, he asked what was going on that was causing such a scene. The man was then told that a British boys band was returning home from a tour of Sweden. Fascinated that a group of four young men could attract so many fans and members of the press to the airport, he began to seek them out in an attempt to get them to appear on his American late night variety show. Four short months later, The Beatles appeared on “The Ed Sullivan Show,” officially kicking off the British pop invasion and the American waive of ‘Beatlemania.’ Ringo Starr, George Harrison, Paul McCartney and John Lennon, all just in their early 20s, took American popular culture by storm, selling more records than thought humanly possible. With their upbeat, peppy rock/pop songs they had people all over the United States as well as the British Isles up and dancing. Lunch boxes, bobble-heads, wigs, and of course, records were all available for the public to consume and consume they did. The Beatles first single, “Love Me Do,” which promptly went straight to number one on the American pop

Taylor Davis music charts, “Introducing… The Beatles’ was their first American LP and in its first year it sold more than 1.3 million copies. “Love Me Do” was so successful that it being at the top of the charts was the only thing that stopped The Beatles next hit “I Want To Hold Your Hand” from going straight to the top of the charts on it’s first day available to the public. When the “Fab Four” set out on their 2nd American tour they may have never imagined that they would have to be transported to and from venues by helicopters and a Wells Fargo armored bank truck. On Aug. 15, 1965, with 2,000 security guards present The Beatles performed to 55,000 screaming people at New York City’s Shea Stadium. The world had never witnessed anything like this. The Beatles pulled in more fans than the stadium’s

home team, the Mets, commonly did. They made an estimated $304,000 in one night, more than any entertainment group had ever even considered feasible. This paved the way for future stadium concerts by proving that they could not only be entertaining but lucrative as well. On Aug. 29, 1966 the Beatles performed their last live stateside performance in San Francisco’s Candlestick Park for a crowd of 25,000. Retiring from touring at that point the Beatles took to working solely on studio recordings. Many assumed this to be the end of The Beatles popularity, however as time moved forward, The Beatles only continued to gather more fans. On Sept. 9, 2009 “The Beatles Rockband” videogame came out to huge success. It seems that despite the absence of two of the members the Beatles success is something that cannot be measured in dollars earned or tickets sold, but should instead be measured by hearts and souls that they have touched. Although they will never fill the seats of Shea Stadium The Beatles live on in ways that we will continue to see and feel for the rest of our lives. Taylor Davis is a senior communications major.

Two gunshot victims and one battery victim were transported to Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Center. A subsequent pause on late-night on-campus parties was lifted after new policies went into effect, centering on how ticket distribution was handled.

Students play Bingo amid Halloween theme

By Marcus Curtis Entertainment Editor @DEN_News The Halloween-themed Bingo and trivia game night Thursday, hosted by the University Board’s Special Events section, ended in a big win for a few students while other students went home empty handed. What started out as a room full of eight people at 7 p.m. turned into a room of 20-plus people after five more

minutes in 7th Street Underground. There were Bingo boards, popcorn balls, pretzels, soda pop and candy bags to fit the theme for Halloween waiting on a table for participants in the game night. The scene was a dimly lit Seventh Underground in the basement of the Martin Luther King Jr. University Union. The room was draped in faux spider webs, spooky but decorative skulls and large faux spiders. Amongst the big winners at the game

night was George Woodard, a junior psychology major, and Logan Johnson, a senior recreation administration major, who was also the first winner of the night. Johnson and Woodard were part of the party of four that took home all of the big prizes, including a crockpot, a blender, a DVD player and a coffee maker. In addition to the big prizes the party won, they also won packages that included movies and popcorn.

Eastern takes on Louisville By Dominic Renzetti Managing Editor | @domrenzetti

ern Kentucky at the OVC Championships. Bryce Basting and Pablo Ramirez each finished first team allconference, while Danny Delaney finished second team all-conference. The women’s team finished third behind both Belmont and Eastern Kentucky. It was led by first-teamers Olivia Klaus and Britney Whitehead, who have since graduated from Eastern. Rain is expected for Saturday’s forecast with temperatures hovering near 50 degrees. The team will have nearly two weeks off before their next meet at Iowa State University.

The Eastern hockey club will travel out of state this weekend for a twogame series with Louisville this Friday and Saturday at the Iceland Sports Complex in Louisville. The first game will start at 10 p.m. Friday, followed by the second at 7 p.m. on Saturday. The Panthers won the second game of their series Saturday with Northern Illinois, making it the team’s first win since the season opener against Bradley. The team’s six goals in last Saturday’s win were the most for the team all season. Senior Zack Yurchak led Eastern with two goals in the win. Senior Andrew Teske and sophomore Zack Peifer split time in goal for the Panthers last weekend. The Panthers enter with a record of 2-9, snapping a nine-game losing streak dating back to Sept. 20. Louisville enters with a record of 7-7-1, coming off two straight losses to Davenport. Louisville and the Eastern have had one common opponent this season. Louisville played Missouri in the D2 Showcase in Kalamazoo, Mich., on Oct. 11, losing by a score of 8-1. Eastern did not have much luck against Missouri either, losing two games against the Tigers by scores of 6-3 and 8-2. Both games were on the road. Louisville’s freshman David Bechard, a transfer from Williston State College in North Dakota, leads the team in goals this season with seven. The two teams squared off last season at the Panthers’ home ice in Danville, losing the first game 5-4 but winning the second game 3-0. Eastern will return home next weekend for a series against Eastern Kentucky.

Eastern women’s cross country members Gaby Duenas-Delaney, a red-shirt senior, and freshman Ivy Handley and sophomore Victoria Quarton, compete in the Walt Crawford Open on Sept. 6 on the Panther Trail. The women finished second in the meet.

Panthers prepare for OVC championships By Blake Nash Staff Reporter | @DEN_Sports The Eastern men’s and women’s cross country teams will compete in the Ohio Valley Conference Championships this weekend. Saturday the team will travel to Morehead, Ky., for one of its biggest meets of the season. The team appears to be focused and excited for this meet, coach Erin Howarth said. “We are extremely excited for this meet,” Howarth said. “We have one shot to make all-conference since we don’t compete against most conference opponents throughout the season like most sports do.” Every runner on the team has had


at least one outstanding race this season, but not everyone has raced great on the same day, Howarth said. “That’s our goal for this Saturday, and if that happens the results will be what we want them to be,” Howarth said. Since this race features only conference opponents, the field is expected to be smaller, something Howarth and her team look forward to this weekend. “In a smaller race where everyone can see each other, it makes it easier to help each other out,” Howarth said. During bigger races this season it has become easy for the runners to get lost, lose sight of teammates, or to get injured, Howarth said, but

she knows that will not happen this weekend. All 12 teams in the OVC will be competing, including Eastern Kentucky men’s and women’s teams, which combined, has won seven total championships in the last four years. There is one women’s and one men’s race scheduled for the day. The top eight will then be scored for their respective schools. One of the main goals for both the men’s and women’s team is to finish in the top 14, which is where the allconference rankings begin, Howarth said. Both teams have healthy runners one through eight on target for this meet. Last season, the Panther men finished second overall behind East-



CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Eastern and Fort Wayne are the only teams in the Summit League that have only one game remaining. Every other squad has two matches left on the conference schedule. The Panthers will need Western Illinois to lose both of its remaining conference matches while Omaha must pick up a win and a draw in order to overtake Eastern in the league standings with help from the goal differential tie breaker. A victory for Western against IUPUI or Denver will effectively eliminate Eastern from contention. Both Denver and IUPUI are currently


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 ranked ahead of Western on the table. If Western were to draw 0-0 in one match and then lose in the other, Eastern would have to win by eight goals over Omaha. The fate of Howarth’s team is not in their hands and the Eastern alumnus knows his team needs assistance to make a run at the Summit League postseason title on Nov. 17. “At least the ball is in our court, a little bit,” Howarth said. “We may have to depend on what happens in some of the other games, but if we don’t win it doesn’t matter.” Omaha has struggled to find the

back of the net this season. The Mavericks have scored 11 goals, less than one per match. The team’s leading goal scorer is junior midfielder Vance Rookwood who has scored three times. The Panthers have three players at or above that total. The match will begin 11:30 a.m. at Lakeside Field. That Panthers will wrap up their regular season schedule at home against Bradley on Tuesday. Michael Spencer can be reached at 581-2812 or



“Darian Stone was giving us fits and it was his first start, and it took our defense a little while to adjust to him,” Babers said. “He can beat you with his and with his arm and he can be very dangerous.” Stone’s previous game against Jacksonville State saw him run the ball 20 times for 79 yards, both team-highs for Tennessee Tech. Senior defensive tackle Jon Voytilla said the Panthers simply have to treat their assignment just like any other week. “As defensive lineman, we just have to get off the ball, play hard

and play until the whistle blows; if we do that we shouldn’t have any problem stopping (Stone),” Voytilla said. The Eastern defensive line is led by sixth-year senior Pat Wertz, who has a team-high 5.5 sacks. Kickoff is scheduled for noon on Saturday at O’Brien Field. Aldo Soto can be reached at 581-2812 or

@DEN_Sports tweet of the day: #EIU football, volleyball and men’s basketball will all play at home at noon, 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., respectively.

Eastern to host OVC foes By Anthony Catezone Sports Editor | @AnthonyCatz The Eastern volleyball team enters the weekend with a chance to clinch an Ohio Valley Conference record above .500 for the first time in eight years. The Panthers, who are 7-3 in the OVC, have six conference games remaining and four consecutive home games. Eastern will host Tennessee-Martin and Southeast Missouri this weekend, the same two teams it opened its OVC schedule on the road with in late September. Eastern split its weekend matches to open the conference schedule, beating Tennessee-Martin and after losing to Southeast Missouri. The Panthers swept the Skyhawks (25-22, 25-21, 25-14). They dominated the match, as it featured just eight ties and three lead changes in the three sets total. But Eastern began the OVC season with a five-set loss to Southeast Missouri (22-25, 19-25, 25-22, 26-24, 15-7). The Redhawks jumped out two a two-set lead before allowing the Panthers to get back into the match with third and fourth set wins. However, Southeast Missouri controlled the fifth set, picking up its first conference win of the season. In the last month, since the teams first met, Eastern is 13-10 overall but 7-3 in the OVC. The Panthers lead west division and have the second best conference record overall. Southeast Missouri is 5-5 in conference, placing it third in the west division, but the Redhawks are just 3-8 on the road this season. Eastern, at 4-0, is the only OVC team that is still undefeated at home. Eastern is also on a season-long four-game win streak. Tennessee-Martin, meanwhile, has the second worst OVC record at 2-8. The Skyhawks have lost seven consecutive matches. Three of those matches the Skyhawks were swept in. They also have a five-set loss to the OVC’s worst team, Tennessee Tech. It is Tennessee Tech’s lone conference win. The Skyhawks do not have a single player in the top 10 in any statistic other than setter Amanda Crask who is sixth with 9.82 assists per set. Eastern setter Marah Bradbury ranks first with 12.32 assists per set. Bradbury received her fourth OVC Setter of the Week honor this season. But Eastern will have to prepare for Taylor Masterson, Southeast Missouri’s middle blocker, who is seventh in the OVC in attack. She is hitting .323 in conference play. Masterson is also third in the conference in blocks, with 1.14 per set. However, Eastern’s own middle blocker, Stephanie Arnold, bests Masterson in each of those statistics. Arnold is second in the OVC in hit percentage with .364. She is also second in the OVC in blocks with 1.20 per set. Arnold is coming off her third alltime OVC Offensive Player of the Week honor. Those are not the only players the Panthers’ have among the top of the OVC. Outside hitter Reynae Hutchinson leads the conference with 3.90 kills per set in conference play. Eastern will host Tennessee-Martin at 7 p.m. Friday and Southeast Missouri at 5 p.m. Saturday in Lantz Arena. Anthony Catezone can be reached at 581-2812 or

Defensive linemen Dino Fanti and Pat Wertz rush the offensive line of Southeast Missouri State on Oct. 19 at O’Brien Field. Eastern beat Southeast Missouri 55-33. Eastern will face Tennessee Tech at 12 p.m. on Saturday on O’Brien Field.

Panthers to meet last-place OVC team By Aldo Soto Assistant Sports Editor | @AldoSoto21 For the Eastern football team, the Baylor offense is what the Panthers hope to replicate. Eastern coach Dino Babers and players are quick to remind everyone that the Panthers’ offense is not like Oregon, it is like Baylor’s. On Saturday at O’Brien Field, the Panthers will play Tennessee Tech, led by coach Watson Brown, the brother of Mack Brown — coach of the Texas Longhorns. Tennessee Tech (3-6, 0-5) has lost four consecutive games and in the Ohio Valley Conference the Golden Eagles sit sixth in scoring defense, and total defense and seventh in passing defense, allowing 31.2 points per game, 412.6 yards per game and 235.1 passing yards per game, respectively.

The Golden Eagles will travel to Charleston, where they will meet the No. 1 scoring offense in the FCS, led by the No. 1 ranked quarterback in passing yards and touchdowns in Jimmy Garoppolo. On paper, the noon start is a mismatch for Tennessee Tech, as Eastern entered Saturday winning four straight OVC games, scoring an average of 48.5 points per game in those four wins. But Babers said Tennessee Tech’s coach’s brother may give the Golden Eagles an insight, as Mack Brown plays against Baylor every year in the Big 12 Conference. “( Watson)’s brother is Mack Brown from the University of Texas, he’s probably got more information about the Baylor offense than anybody in the nation that’s not in the Big 12,” Babers said. “(Watson) has a lot of knowledge about our program

and a lot of knowledge about our offense.” Last year, during Babers’ first year manning the Eastern program, the Panthers played Tennessee Tech and were trailing 10-7 at halftime before outscoring the Golden Eagles 24-14 in the final two quarters for a 31-24 win. Babers said he thinks Watson Brown came up with something on Saturday to try and slow down the Panthers’ offense and his brother might aid that strategy. “I’m sure they talk a little bit,” Babers said. “Can I vouch for it? No, I don’t have any evidence or any proof of that, but if that was my brother and he was playing somebody like that, I would give him a call and ask him some questions.” But despite Babers knowing that the Tennessee Tech coach is familiar with the Eastern offense, Ba-

bers said the Panthers have to worry about themselves when preparing for the game. He also said once it comes down adjustments on Saturday the Panthers will be ready. “We have a Rolodex offense; we work everything, and we keep everything greased up,” Babers said. “Based off of what the defense is doing, we pull out what we feel we need to attack the defense. That’s what we’ll do this week. We’ll work on us.” The Eastern defense will also have to prepare for Tennessee Tech quarterback Darian Stone. Stone, a junior and dual-threat quarterback, has scored three rushing touchdowns and four passing touchdowns in seven games. Stone played well against Eastern last season and gave the Panthers’ defense trouble, Babers said. PANTHERS, page 7

Team faces must-win match vs. Omaha By Michael Spencer Staff Reporter | @tmskeeper Despite only winning one match this season, with a victory over Omaha (39-1) on Sunday at Lakeside Field, the Eastern men’s soccer team can reach the Summit League postseason tournament. “It’s massive,” Eastern coach Adam Howarth said Tuesday. “If we don’t win that game, then we have no chance of getting in, so we have to win that game.” The Panthers (1-12-2) enter Sunday’s matchup after a 5-1 defeat at the hands of Wisconsin in a non-conference midweek match, just four days after falling by two goals to league-leading Denver. Eastern has now lost three straight matches after defeating Oral Roberts for the team’s only victory of the season Oct. 20. Howarth said the match is crucial because the season will be on the line against the Mavericks and a win is essential. MUST WIN, page 7

Charletta Steele, a junior mathematics major, poses with the other members of GLAM during a practice Wednesday in the University Ballroom for the 7 Deadly Sins fashion show.

The sew before the show GLAM designers get ready for '7 Deadly Sins' performance By Stephanie Markham Verge Editor

With inspirations ranging from Victoria’s Secret models to junk food wrappers, this year’s GLAM designers are making sin look more fashionable than ever. The fashion show will be at 6 p.m. Friday in the Grand Ballroom of the Martin Luther King Jr. University Union. Tickets are $5 in advance and $7 at the door, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Parkinson’s Action Network. Having decided on the “7 Deadly Sins” theme for their fashion show, the executive members of GLAM had to think of design ideas to top all of the group’s past shows. Kendall Jackson, a senior family and consumer sciences major and the president of GLAM, helped to develop the concepts for the pieces.

“We sat back and we reviewed all our previous fashion shows, and we were like, ‘We’ve done this; we’ve done this. Now, what’s the next level of difficulty that we can present, not only with our fashion but also with our presentation,’” he said. He said the main scene of the fashion show will be the gluttony scene, where the audience will see the incorporation of chip bags, McDonald's bags, Joey’s menus and Capri Sun juice boxes. “We just wanted to do something fun and innovative because GLAM has always been known to take things, whether it’s duct tape and make an outfit, caution tape and make an outfit,” he said. “So we wanted to do something a little more fun and lively, and we figured: candy wrappers, colors, fun.” Bri’an Fields, a senior kinesiology and sports studies major and the CEO of GLAM, said an important step in designing the outfits was

working closely with the models, who also help to co-design. “It’s usually either me or another exec board member,” she said “We go to the models’ rooms and see what they have to offer to piece together to make a runway ensemble.” Jackson said he works with the models in coming up with designs as well. “The thought process is: I look at the person that I’m supposed to design, and then from there I figure out what is their best asset, their best feature, and then I try to accent that in some type of way,” he said. Fields said the main challenge in designing for the show was making sure each outfit fit the model’s body right, which was particularly difficult for the gluttony-inspired piece.

‘Gravity’ visually stunning; storyline lacking originality The latest must-see, feast-forthe-eyes movie is the record-breaking “Gravity.” According to the Associated Press, in its debut weekend “Gravity” became the biggest October opening of all time, earning more than $55 million in North American ticket sales. Sandra Bullock stars as Ryan Stone, a medical engineer on her first mission into space. She is expectedly a bit nervous, but veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski (George Clooney) helps her out. The two get word that space debris is quickly coming their way. The warning comes too late, and the two are now on a mission to save their lives and get back down to Earth. There is no doubt about it; all of the praise heaped down on over the technical brilliance of “Gravity” is well earned. Seeing this movie in the plain, “old-fashioned” way will not do. It just will not have the same impact. This movie was clearly made with the intention of being seen in 3-D. IMAX would be even better if you are willing to spend the extra money that it often requires. There are plenty of awe-inspiring views that will be as close as most people ever get to seeing the Earth from space. This is a movie that one should see in the theater if possible, as it will not be the same as seeing it on our comparatively small television

screens at home. There are also plenty of times where you just can’t help but flinch when space debris comes flying at you. At times, we are presented with point of view shots, like being placed inside Stone’s helmet. The audience will feel like they are moving along with the characters, so much so that if you get motion sickness easily, this may not be the film for you. Yes, the looks of “Gravity” are indeed spectacular, but the same cannot be said for the story. It is not bad by any means, but let’s just say the movie needs the technical brilliance to really be something that is worth seeing. Bullock’s character has gone through a tragedy in her life. She has lost her young daughter. This unnecessary backstory feels overly sentimental, awkward and forced, as the audience would rather just get back to the action. Clooney’s character is going up for his last trip into space and, of course, it is not going to go smoothly for him.

The characters keep facing a long list of problems. As soon as we think all is OK, something happens once again. These and other happenings are rather predictable, but they are still good enough to keep the story going. Both of the actors do a fine job, too. This movie needed high-profile stars to be successful. Lesser-known actors may not have been able to hold the audience’s attention as well, but that is not a concern with these two A-list   ers. There are once again debates, as there always are when films of this type are successful, over whether   this is the future of cinema.       The audience is not really forced to think much with this type of movie. Everything is spelled out for us. While technological advances are never bad things when it comes to film, this should not become the norm. Some movies are just fine presented in the “old-fashioned” way. Storytelling and acting is bound to suffer if the technical side is relied on too heavily. With that being said, it is just fine to indulge in some eye candy every now and then, and “Gravity” is about as good as is gets when it comes to that. Jordan Thiede can be reached at 581-2812 or

Larger-than-life portraits, poetry featured in Tarble By Liz Purcell Verge Reporter

Hanging in the main gallery of the Tarble Arts Center, portraits show the harsh detail of the human face, emphasizing every pore, hair and wrinkle in a way that reflects human nature in its raw form. The Tarble is hosting the photography of the world-renowned contemporary artist Chuck Close and the poetry of spoken-word poet Bob Holman. The display started last Saturday and will stay until Dec. 20. The exhibition, titled “A Couple of Ways of Doing Something,” is making its final appearance at the Tarble after a seven-year tour. Close’s art is displayed in many art museums, including the Art Institute of Chicago and the Tate Modern in London. Holman is the host of the Poetry Slams at the Nuyorican Poets Café and currently runs the Bowery Poetry club. His poetry is creatively displayed next to Close’s photographs in the exhibition. Close’s massive portraits feature his artist-friends who have appeared in his paintings. Holman’s poetry is presented in different paragraph forms and sometimes printed vertically instead of horizontally. Michael Watts, the director of

the Tarble, said the art might be more personal because Close uses people he knows. He said Close uses a variety of methods to create his art. These include some photography techniques that were popular over a century ago but are rarely used anymore, such as daguerreotypes and photogravures. Close often uses one photograph and translates it into several pieces using these different methods. Holman’s poetry displayed next to Close’s photographs presents each piece in a different way. “It’s sort of an extension of the whole concept behind the exposition, which is to take the portrait of a person and then develop different ways of presenting that person’s portrait,” Watts said. The Tarble is also presenting Close’s portrait tapestries. The tapestries were not created using digital print, but by woven combinations of 17,800 different threads. Close’s self-portrait tapestry is hung in the middle of Tarble’s exhibit, revealing the black and white portrait on one side and the multi-colored threads on the other side. Watts said the Tarble is able to feature this exhibition because of a recent donation from the Tarble Family Foundation. This donation was specifically made to pay for a




major artist. He said this is the first time the Tarble has had a fund dedicated to bring major artists to the Tarble. Traveling exhibitions also cost much more than the previous Chicagoan artists who the Tarble usually books, Watts said. “Chuck Close is one of the most recognized and universally respected contemporary artists from the U.S.,” Watts said. He said people do not need to understand everything about art to enjoy it. “People seem to think you have to be really conversant with contemporary art to be able to look at it and get anything out of it, but that’s not really true,” Watts said. “With anything, you get more out of it the more you know about it.” Watts said the biggest takeaway from the exhibit is realizing how the use of different mediums in art affect our reactions toward each piece. “The most obvious take-away from 'A Couple of Ways of Doing Something' is considering how our reactions are effected, both emotionally and intellectually, when looking at the same photographic image presented in very different sizes and media,” Watts said.

Film festival to feature diverse documentaries By Stephanie White Verge Reporter

When one of Cameron Craig’s students said he had never been out West, Craig said, “Let’s go” and took him there. They only had two plans: that they were going to be there for a week and that they would visit the Badlands National Park in South Dakota and Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. As far as a game plan was concerned, the two did not really have one; they were just going to explore nature and film what they experienced. This is how Craig, a climatologist and geology-geography professor, started to create his eight-part documentary series “Expedition Nature’s Realm.” This series was aired on PBS from 2007 to 2008, and the second episode, “The Anthropocene Era,” is going to be one of the six documentaries featured in this year’s Embarras Valley Film Festival. Craig said his documentary is different because it answers the basic questions people have about nature in a simple but philosophical way. “Kevin kept an electronic journal while we were on this trip,” Craig said. “In one entry, he had this quote, ‘co-existence with nature that is Earth,’ and once I read that, I knew that is what this series is going to be about.” Each part of the series explains a different aspect of how humans and

The gluttony scene is based on the desire for the overconsumption of food, and the ensemble is constructed of recycled items like snack wrappers and soda cans, she said. “I found that really challenging for gluttony because that actually molds to your body form,” she said. “So of course you’ll need a little bit of room to move in it, and I found that hard because it constricted them.” Fields said they fixed that problem by having the models wear the outfits while they were being made and letting them break the outfits in. Jackson said there are a lot of challenges to being a designer that people might not realize, and there is a lot to learn by doing fashion shows.

nature coexist. The festival features topics each year that are relevant to Embarras Valley, which includes much of East Central Illinois. This year’s theme is documentaries, and each chosen documentary is by filmmakers who have attended Eastern or are residents of Illinois. Kit Morice, the co-director for the festival, helped to start the festival in 2004 when she put on the Gregg Toland Day festival in celebration of the Charleston-born cinematographer who was well known for “Citizen Kane” and “Wuthering Heights.” “After it was over, people kept coming up to me asking when next year’s festival was going to be and what theme it was going to be,” Morice said. She said that gave her the idea to have others, so the following year she officially started the Embarras Valley Film Festival. The festival will include several other documentaries as well as a showcase of student-made documentaries. “778 Bullets,” directed by Angela Aguayo, follows an incident involving Southern Illinois University. The state and local police of Carbondale shot 778 bullets into an off-campus rental house where university students lived; some of these students were assumed to be associated with the local Black Panther Party. “Between Two Rivers” was filmed, edited and directed by art-

ists Jacob Cartwright and Nick Jordan. This documentary is set in Cairo, Ill. depicting the community’s major economic, social and environmental troubles. “Wall of Sound: A Look Inside the House of Records,” directed by David Gracon, a communication studies professor, explores an independent record store in Eugene, Oregon called the House of Records. It has been around since 1972, and the film looks at the store’s struggle to stay active and in competition with digital downloading. “Piedra Roja,” directed by Gary Fritz, is a documentary that combines footage taken at the Red Rock Music Festival during 1970s along with recent reviews with the participants. Following the screenings of student-made stop motion and documentary films, there will be a preview of the film “Confidence Man.” “Confidence Man” is directed by Bob Streit and produced by Stace England. This film explores the life and troubles of Hugh DeNeal, who is the co-founder and primary songwriter for The Woodbox Gang, an acoustic band based in Southern Illinois. It features not only the band but also the families of the band and fans. Postal Inspector interviews and concert footage will also be shown in the film.

“You learn a lot about the fabrics. You see this fabric that you think is beautiful and it’s gorgeous, but it doesn’t have that elasticity to it,” he said. “So sometimes the design that you have in mind just won’t work for the scene simply because it doesn’t’ stretch the right way.” Jackson said the hardest part of designing was finding fabrics that complimented the models’ body structures, especially in Charleston area where supplies are limited. “All you have is Walmart, but you make it work,” he said. Danielle S. Davis, a senior general studies major and the technology manager for GLAM, said most of the props were made from recycled materials like cardboard boxes, tissue paper and wood pieces. “We are college students, so we didn’t want to spend a whole lot of

money on unnecessary things when we can use things that are right around us,” she said. Davis said she watched other shows for inspiration and thought about ways to take those ideas to the next level. “I always think of things that are a lot different from the norm,” she said. “So if I see something, like if I’m watching a show or I see something on TV, I’m like, ‘Hey that’s a good idea, but let's put a twist to it so that it’s not boring.” Although the gluttony outfit is the most extreme, Fields said her second favorite category is greed because the outfits are “sophisticated and sleek and slimming.” “That scene is particularly an allblack scene, and the outfit that the main character wears, her outfit is just as crazy as the main character in gluttony’s,” she said.

For the lust scene, the designers were going for more sex appeal similar to a Victoria’s Secret model, but less explicit, she said. “It’s a little bit more modest than Victoria’s Secret, but along the lines of playful and sexy,” Fields said. Jackson said he also he also designed wings that are similar to Victoria’s Secret wings, but with a “GLAM twist.” He said people have compared his style of designing to the show “Project Runway.” “I’m the type of designer that takes random pieces and put them together, so avant-garde kind of style,” he said. Jackson said he takes inspiration from “Project Runway” and from the models’ physiques, and he also likes to express himself through design.

He said fashion and design go hand in hand as forms of expression. “Either I’m expressing it vocally (or) I’m expressing it non-vocally, and I think that’s what the fashion industry is about,” he said. “I don’t have to say anything; I can let my outfit speak for itself.” Davis said she compares designing to poetry as a form of expression. “Whenever you design something, you put your heart and soul into it, and it’s the same thing with a poetry piece,” she said. “You take a piece of yourself and put it out on paper or put it out on Facebook. It’s the same thing when you design something.”
