Chancellor awaits reports, discusses campus diversity University of Mississippi Chancellor Dan Jones sat down with The Daily Mississippian last week to talk about what the university has done in the months following multiple discriminatory incidents of the past two years. BY ADAM GANUCHEAU amganuch@go.olemiss.edu

Chancellor Dan Jones and other university officials are expecting reports from two outside consultants about both physical symbols on campus and organizational structure regarding the handling of issues of diversity and inclusivity. The consultants were scheduled to come to campus after the Extended Sensitivity and Respect Committee released a campus climate report in October 2013 that called for outside consultation. Edward Ayers, president of the University of Richmond and noted historian, visited campus to assess features of campus like building names, street names, statues and other physical symbols. “(Ayers) has written a great deal about a lot of these things, but he was also a college president that had tried to provide leadership both at his university and in his community about having an honest conversation about race, issues of slavery, Jim Crow, Civil Rights, and he led his university and community in those conversations,” Jones said. Gregory Vincent, vice president for diversity and community engagement, visited campus to assess the university’s organization structures that deal with issues of diversity and inclusivity. Jones said universities typically take one of two approaches when

dealing with similar issues: a centralized approach, where there is one main office for diversity within a university that reports directly to the chancellor or provost, or a distributed approach, where there are diversity officers in many different offices on campus that report to their superiors, who then report to the provost or chancellor. Ole Miss currently uses the distributed approach, but the Sensitivity and Respect Committee suggested a reevaluation of whether it was best for the university. Jones then reached out to Vincent, who led the University of Texas through a reorganization of their approach to diversity. “Both approaches have their advantages and disadvantages,” Jones said. “Because we’ve had reasons to question our environment about race and inclusiveness, the (Extended Sensitivity and Respect Committee) suggested we look at our organizational structure. I decided to bring someone in who works at a university and works with those kinds of responsibilities and in a place where they’ve evaluated that recently in a purposeful way.” Both Ayers and Vincent are leaders in places with extreme symbolism related to the Confederacy. Richmond was the capital of the Confederate States of America, and Jones said the University of Richmond has many physical

characteristics that tie them to those times. Jones also said the University of Texas has six monuments on their campus that are related to the Confederacy. Jones requested specific reports from each consultant but is still waiting for them to come in. He hopes that he will receive the reports in the coming days, but does not expect them before the end of the semester. While he was hoping to have the reports by now, he is grateful for the work of the consultants. “Because we don’t have both reports in, I want to wait so the university leadership can digest those and draft a specific response,” Jones said. “I would have

liked to have it completed during this semester, but I’m certainly not disappointed that the consultants are taking a thoughtful, purposeful approach to what is obviously so important for our university and for the broader society right now.” Since the reports have not yet been returned, Jones declined to disclose many specific actions that may or may not be addressed by the university. The DM asked Jones about some widely-discussed concerns that many students, alumni and other university supporters have voiced over the past few weeks, including the future of the university’s secondary name “Ole Miss”

and the nickname “Rebels.” “When I receive the consultants’ reports, I will issue a specific response to those reports and there will be clarity in my response,” Jones said. “I have, in the past and on the record, talked about not having any interest in addressing the nomenclature around ‘Ole Miss’ and ‘Rebels.’ Those are terms that are embraced by the vast majority of our people and are seen by the vast majority of the people in the country in positive light of a modern university. The consultants did address those, and we’ll have some further things to say about those in our response See CHANCELLOR, PAGE 3

Severe weather, tornadoes expected across Mid-South BY MAGGIE MCDANIEL & LOGAN KIRKLAND thedmnews@gmail.com

Many states in the South including Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee and Kentucky will be enduring severe weather starting today, lasting until Tuesday evening. According to The National Weather Service there are going to be widespread severe thunderstorms including strong tornadoes, damaging

winds and very large hail. Starting yesterday, a bigger upper level disturbance moved across the lower Mississippi Valley. This will initiate an additional round of showers and thunderstorms across the mid south, said Corey Chaskelson, a meteorologist of the Memphis National Weather Service. “Some of these storms could be severe with the potential of large hail, damag-

ing winds and perhaps some tornadoes,” Chaskelson said. This storm system should clear up either late Tuesday afternoon or early Tuseday evening across north Mississippi, according to Chaskelson. In other areas the storm system should clear up earlier. Chaskelson said weather like this is pretty common around this time of the year. “When you have a combination of all these come

together you can have the potential for strong to severe showers and thunderstorms,” Chaskelson said. The National Weather Service has many tips and safety precautions to follow before or during bad weather. These tips include that the safest place to take cover is a basement, safe room or an underground shelter. According to Chaskelson, the best action students can

take is to be prepared. “If there is a watch out, or before a watch is issued it is best to have a safety plan in mind,” Chaskelson said. “Once a warning is issued you need act on that safety plan.” Chaskelson also mentioned if a emergency happens during or after severe weather people should contact their local authorities or emergency responders for help.

Drug bust? Yeah, okay

BY CORY FERRAEZ cferraez@go.olemiss.edu

I am writing again about our pointless war on drugs. My headline: the drug war does not work. Shocker. Last week a piece in this publication focused on the continued and unnecessary drug war. In it were of course inaccuracies with how our narcotics unit functions and their ability to boost their numbers of “busts” and intake to make it seem like they are actually doing something “good” for the community. But I promise, we would all be better off if they just stopped. How many times do I have to write that the drug war needs to end? How hard is it to stop policies that blatantly target a minority class and put nonviolent people in prison—most likely T H E D A I LY

ruining what life they have to live with that on their record. I’m writing to request we stop and think about the money that is going to our narcotics unit. Our own mayor, clumsy as he may be with his choice of words, does not even know what our narcotics unit is up to. He’s said it himself—he only puts money for the unit, but does not know what they do. Why do not our officials know what’s going on? There is no supervision—only a panel with police watching other police. Sounds plausible. What we need is a civilian oversight board. Our Lafayette County Libertarian party has been pushing this for quite some time, much to the chagrin our leaders no doubt. I haven’t begun to write about the countless deaths that have occurred as a result of their confidential informant program. A program that takes innocent marijuana peddlers and sends them off to “bust” serious gang related drug pushers. I cannot imagine the legal

questions surrounding these practices. Most likely without attorney or parent representation, the narcotics unit makes people they catch with small time drug charges sign a document that supposedly relieves the unit of liability if things go wrong with when they force these kids to go in undercover to bring down a larger, more dangerous individual. I am glad the U.S. government is defunding these programs slowly but surely. I wish our University and local government would stop as well. President Obama has acknowledged the problems with our drug war—one that we have never been intent on winning, just wasting resources that could better be used elsewhere. I am calling out our city officials and our board of aldermen. It is time to wake up and stop being children about an issue that is killing people, destroying families, and creating racial inequalities. Doing drugs is stupid. You know what else is stupid?

But I haven’t invested in anything. I don’t want to invest in what they’re doing. And you should not either. Cory Ferraez is a third-year law student from Columbus.

CHANCELLOR, continued from page 1

to the consultant report.” After the Feb. 16 desecration of the James Meredith civil rights statue on campus, Jones drafted and released a letter condemning the acts and calling for individual leadership. In the letter, he also shared his views on why it is so important that we own our mistakes so we can improve both the university and the state. “There are a lot of personal feelings in that letter,” Jones said. “People care what the chancellor of The University of Mississippi thinks about things and I’m grateful for that. Broadly, this is a state with a lot of wonderful traits, but also with a lot of needs. I continue to see this university as the largest hope for leadership for this state to move us from a less-desirable place to a more-desirable place. That’s the most important context – the privilege of leadership of this university and this state that I love so much.” Also in the letter, the chancellor wrote about how the doors to the university are open from the outside. He continued, “But we have many internal doors that need to be further opened to achieve our ideal of a fully inclusive university.” Jones expanded a bit on what he meant by that during the interview, giving multiple examples. One example he gave was when he was a student at the university’s medical school, there were only three women in his class. In order to improve on that injustice, he said, it took deliberate action from the medical school’s selection committee members. “All of our doors need to be examined,” Jones said. “It requires

a very purposeful, intentional plan about how you do that. That means spending some money and exerting lots of effort. A little of it is individual responsibility. I’ve been using a theme in alumni meetings this spring. I’ve asked the groups to look around the room. Think about diversity. Think about age diversity. The average age in those meetings are probably 6065. Could we do better? Do you know younger alumni? Could you help the alumni association by being purposeful and picking up a phone and inviting those younger people to the meetings? “Just be sure you are purposeful. It’s the same whether it’s gender or race. Unless you’re intentional about it, people may not know that they are welcome.” Jones also discussed Greek life and how improvements can be made in that area. “Certainly the most visible place in our campus organizations where you would see an opportunity for improvement is in Greek life,” Jones said. “Is it complicated? Yes. They’re membership traditions revolve around legal discrimination. How do you work that pathway around being sure that you’re not inappropriately or illegally discriminating? It comes down to being purposeful and intentional, and I do think it’s time for every organization on campus to ask themselves those questions.

How open are our doors? What are we doing to promote equity and inclusiveness? It’s time for us, as an entire university, to look at our internal doors.” Jones said he has received a lot of criticism for being so intentional in his approach regarding some of the incidents that have occurred on campus. Over the past few weeks, many people have expressed their concerns to The DM about the university’s quickness to publicize some incidents that bring negative local, regional and even national attention. Jones cites the university’s history as a reason that the university is in the spotlight – and often times, the attention here is more than most universities going through similar situations. “All southern universities resisted integration, but it was here where people died and where there was massive physical resistance. Our history is what it is. We can’t erase it,” Jones said. “We can get mad that the national press comes when things happen here, but we don’t. Instead, we can say that when the spotlight is on us, let’s do something in that spotlight. Let’s do something about the

dent leaders including The Daily Mississippian editorial team, ASB leaders and other students calling for visible steps to assure more inclusiveness in student organizations.” Through it all, Jones feels encouraged by what he has seen in recent weeks. While he cannot control acts of hate, he said he can be an effective leader when the university and state needs it the most, despite personal challenges of the pressures and stresses that come along with being in such a public position during trying times. “I personally feel that great responsibility from time to time,” Jones said. “This spring has been filled with plenty of good. I’m encouraged that, in spite of national press about less-than-attractiveincidents on our campus, applications and enrollment continue to climb. This is a place where more and more students want to come to get a great education and have a strong, healthy collegiate experience. Most of my time is spent on trying to ensure that we continue moving in that direction as an education institution.”

problem. The other reason that we can’t quit talking about it, and this is painful to say, but it’s hard for some of our alums to comprehend that when incidents of hate occur on our campus, there are students who feel unsafe here. And that anxiety that they feel is real. We can’t just let those acts of hate go unchallenged, nor can we we not challenge the things that aren’t perfect about this place. We have to ask ourselves those difficult questions.” While he said many areas of campus could improve, Jones believes the university has already made vast improvements regarding diversity and race. He pointed to the Associated Student Body and The DM leadership for being intentional about starting conversations about some of the university’s problems. “As attitudes and actions of broader society in our state and nation continue to evolve on issues of inclusivity and equity, I am glad to see leadership from various parts of our university,” Jones said. “We have large opportunities for progress on inclusion in many campus organizations.

Double Decker Arts Festival: What about the buses? jlboyd3@go.olemiss.edu

The 2014 Double Decker Arts Festival was another long weekend of attractions, entertainment and shopping. The crowds flowed around the Square making purchases and socializing under the blasting, if impermanent, sun. Between trips to restaurants, booths, the live music stage and art demonstrations, it can be far too easy to forget to experience the double-decker buses for which the festival was originally named. The bright red buses are seen periodically around Oxford and the Ole Miss campus all year. Each spring at the festival, however, is their time to shine. Lines wound up the road from the corner of the Square outside Rooster’s for much of the twoday festival this year. Families

with smiling faces ascended the stairs before taking a stroll down Jackson Avenue, through Sorority Row, around the Grove and back through the city to end at the Square where they began. For those lucky enough to catch the buses before drivers turned in Saturday evening, it was an opportunity to see the Oxford community from a new perspective: up high. Former Oxford mayor John Leslie purchased the double-decker buses from London, England, in 1994. They were featured in the first Double Decker Arts Festival in 1995. There are two buses, both able to hold 64 passengers: 28 on the bottom and 36 on the top. Each bus is equipped with a driver and security guard, who coordinates the boarding and unloading of the vehicle.

“The people are great!” said Dale Quarles, a bus driver with seven years of experience. Quarles isn’t just a driver, though. He handles the large festival crowds with his booming voice and calm demeanor. He steps down from his cockpit at the front of the bus for crowd control. He mingles with kids as they take steps down bus stairs, surprising them with a quick game of peeka-boo through the glass window on the back of the bus. After almost a decade of picking up passengers on the Oxford Square for the tourism route, Quarles said he hardly ever encounters a challenging fare. “Every once in a while, you might get a rowdy one, every couple of years,” Quarles said. The security guard on his bus, Tevin Turner, is a young man working his first Double Decker Arts Festival. Their unique mix of youthful energy and experience brought an interesting variety to the double-decker tours this weekend. The buses are more than a tribute to the English namesake of the town; they are the symbol of one of Oxford’s biggest artistic celebrations. The Double Decker Arts Festival brings in thousands upon thousands of visitors, as well as a multitude of vendors and talents. Oxford is an arts town; theater, visual arts and music all thrive here. Though Oxford supports and promotes art all year long, the festival is a weekend when the city can openly exhibit this intrinsic adoration to any who are willing to attend. The buses are a symbol of Oxford’s commitment to not only the functional but also the beautiful and the symbolic as well. For those who didn’t get a chance to ride this weekend, the trademark red buses can be rented through the Oxford Tourism Council during the year. However, riding the double deckers at the festival is something every Oxonian should have the chance to experience.

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Francis presides over historic day of 4 popes VATICAN CITY — Two 20th-century popes who changed the course of the Catholic Church became saints Sunday as Pope Francis honored John XXIII and John Paul II in a delicate balancing act aimed at bringing together the conservative and progressive wings of the church. As if to drive the message of unity home, Francis invited retired Pope Benedict XVI to join him on the altar of St. Peter’s Square, the first time a reigning and retired pope have celebrated Mass together in public in the 2,000-year history of the church. An estimated 800,000 people — many of them from John Paul’s native Poland — filled St. Peter’s, the streets around it and bridges over the Tiber River, a huge turnout but only half the size of the crowd that came out for John Paul’s 2011 beatification. John reigned from 1958-1963 and is a hero to liberal Catholics for having convened the Second Vatican Council. The meetings brought the church into the modern era by allowing Mass to be celebrated in local languages rather than Latin and encour-

aged greater dialogue with people of other faiths, particularly Jews. During his globe-trotting, quarter-century papacy, John Paul II helped topple communism and invigorated a new generation of Catholics, while his defense of core church teaching on abortion, marriage and other hot-button issues heartened conservatives after the turbulent 1960s. Benedict was one of John Paul’s closest confidantes and went on to preside over a deeply tradition-minded eight-year papacy. His successor Francis seems a pope much more inspired by the pastoral, simple style of the “good pope” John. Yet Francis offered each new saint heartfelt praise in his homily, saying John had allowed himself to be led by God to call the council, and hailing John Paul’s focus on the family. It’s an issue that Francis has asked the church as a whole to take up for discussion with a two-year debate starting this fall. “They were priests, bishops and popes of the 20th century,” Francis said. “They lived through the tragic events of that century,

but they were not overwhelmed by them.” Benedict put John Paul on the fast-track for possible sainthood just weeks after his 2005 death, responding to the chants of “Santo Subito!” or “Sainthood Now!” that erupted during his funeral Mass. John Paul’s canonization is now the fastest in modern times. John’s sainthood run, on the other hand, languished after his 2000 beatification. Rather than let John Paul have the limelight with a canonization on his own — emboldening many in the conservative wing of the church — Francis decided to pair him up with John. To do so, Francis tweaked the Vatican’s own saintmaking rules, deciding that John could be made a saint alongside John Paul without the necessary second miracle usually required. Francis sounded a note of continuity in his homily, praising John for having called the council and John Paul for helping implement it. “John XXIII and John Paul II cooperated with the Holy Spirit in renewing and updating the church in keeping with her pristine features, those features

which the saints have given her throughout the centuries,” Francis said. During the ceremony, Francis took a deep breath and paused for a moment before reciting the saint-making formula in Latin, as if moved by the history he was about to make in canonizing two popes at once. As soon as he did so, applause broke out from a crowd in St. Peter’s and beyond. “This is such a historic moment,” marveled the Rev. Victor Perez, who brought a group of students from the John Paul High School in Houston, Texas and waited for nearly 12 hours to get near St. Peter’s. “John Paul was so impactful on the church. He completed the work of Vatican II. Today honors the last 50 years of what God has done in the church.” In John Paul’s native Poland, bells rang out as soon as Francis pronounced the two men saints. “He changed Poland and he changed us with his teaching and with his visits here,” an emotional Maria Jurek said as she watched the proceedings on giant TV screens at a sanctuary dedicated to John Paul in Krakow.

In the Philippines, where John Paul in 1995 drew the largest ever crowd for a papal Mass at 4 million, Filipinos watched the canonization on TV and joined local celebrations, including a suburban Manila parade of children dressed like the pope. Yet the atmosphere in St. Peter’s seemed somber and subdued — perhaps because of the chilly gray skies and cumulative lack of sleep of many of the pilgrims who camped out on streets near the Vatican. It was a far different scene from the rollicking party atmosphere of John Paul’s May 2011 beatification, when bands of young people sang, danced and cheered before, during and after the Mass. Spirits though did pick up after the service when Francis drove through the square and all the way down to the Tiber River in his open-topped car, giving many people their first — and only — close-up glimpse of him. The Vatican estimated that 800,000 people watched the Mass in Rome, with about 500,000 in the square and nearby streets and the rest watching on TV screens that had been set up in piazzas around town.

OLE MISS SPORTS INFORMATION

No. 12 Ole Miss sweeps No. 17 Kentucky with 9-6 win LEXINGTON, Ky. – The Rebel offense continued to click on Sunday, putting together a big rally and scoring in seven consecutive innings as No. 12 Ole Miss (33-12, 13-8 Southeastern Conference) defeated No. 17 Kentucky (27-19, 9-12 SEC) by a score of 9-6 to sweep the series. The Rebels pushed two runs across the plate in the seventh inning to take the lead and added an insurance run in the eighth to pick up the win. It marked only the third time in program history for Ole Miss to sweep Kentucky in Lexington. Senior Jeremy Massie (32) picked up the win in relief, working the final 4.0 innings and holding the Wildcats to only two hits with four strikeouts as Ole Miss rallied for the win. Freshman Logan Salow (2-2) suffered the loss for the Wildcats, giving up the go-ahead run as he worked 1.1 innings and allowed three runs on six hits. “We knew at some point that Kentucky offense would get going, and it did today,” said Ole Miss head coach Mike Bianco. “(Senior) Aaron Greenwood

came in for us in the third and slowed them down enough for us to get back in things. (Jeremy) Massie was just terrific at the end. He’s the only pitcher for us today who really kept them at bay. “(Junior) Auston (Bousfield) had an unbelievable weekend that continued today, and we had so many guys with big hits and so many clutch hits. We got some great base running and some gutsy calls with runners at third base from Coach Godwin.” Kentucky got off to a quick start with junior Austin Cousino taking the first pitch and sending it up the middle to put the leadoff man on for the Wildcats in the first. Cousino was out on the next play with a fielder’s choice, but a walk of junior A.J. Reed put two men on base. Senior Michael Thomas then hit a soft grounder to first to advance both runners to scoring position with two outs on the board. Sophomore Ka’ai Tom then doubled off the wall in right to bring home both runners and put the Wildcats up 2-0 after the first. Ole Miss answered in the

second, using a leadoff double from junior Sikes Orvis and a two-out single to left center from senior Preston Overbey to cut the lead in half at 2-1. The hit parade continued in the third as senior Will Allen hit a two-run shot to right to cut the lead to 4-3 in favor of the Wildcats after the top of the third. Kentucky looked to put together an answering rally for the third straight inning, but the Rebels escaped the basesloaded jam when reliever senior Aaron Greenwood coaxed a fly ball to center out of Cousino to end the inning and keep the score 4-3 heading to the fourth. Ole Miss tied the game in the fourth on an RBI groundout to short from Overbey that scored Woodman from third. The Wildcats moved back in front in the bottom of the fourth. Again the Rebels had an answer when Allen came through with a big two-out hit to right center to score Bousfield from first. Bousfield was hit by a pitch to put him on and scored from first when Allen drove the ball to right center to even the game

at 5-5. Ole Miss moved in front of the Wildcats for the first time on the afternoon when Orvis delivered a sac fly to score Allen in the seventh. A throwing error four batters later brought a second run home in the inning and the Rebels held an 8-6 lead over the Wildcats at the stretch. Ole Miss added to the lead in the eighth inning with an

RBI single to right from Anderson that scored Bousfield, who opened the inning with a double off the wall in right. The Rebels held a 9-6 lead after the top of the eighth. Ole Miss will return to action on Wednesday, hosting Southern Miss in the final home midweek contest of the season. First pitch is set for 6:30 p.m.
