Oxonians and students react to cold beer in Oxford Students and Oxonians alike celebrated the highly anticipated sales of cold beer in Oxford Thursday. The Oxford Board of Aldermen voted 6-1 on Aug. 20 to remove a city ordinance clause allowing only room temperature beer and wine to be sold in the city, along with a Sunday sale moratorium. Senior history major Matthew Janicke said he believes the change was long overdue. “Cold beer doesn’t lead to irresponsible drinking, irresponsible people do,” Janicke said. “I think the new law puts Oxford in line with most of the country. I just feel bad for anyone in the bag ice industry. Sell, sell, sell.” Similarly, senior public policy major Lindsay Krout questioned the allowance’s effects on sales in surrounding areas. “I’m worried about the gas stations in Batesville,” Krout said. “I’m sure they made a killing selling cold beer to people coming into Oxford for games.” Senior integrated marketing communications major George Bradley said he believes the change is for the better. “I am really happy that they have decided to sell cold beer

in Oxford,” Bradley said. “Being from the coast, where you can get cold beer seven days a week, you don’t think about having to buy your beer warm and early for events.” Bradley pointed to the specific benefits of selling to visitors of Oxford within the city. “Out-of-towners that are here for sporting events will be happy to buy beer that is cold and ready to drink.” Not all businesses were ready to sell last night, however. Notably, the Chevron off South Lamar, home of chicken on a stick, will not have everything ready for a couple weeks, as multiple businesses have entered orders for cooling units necessary for the sales. Senior managerial finance major Tyler Kruse said that although it may appear to be a mere change in temperature, the importance cannot be overstated. “I think it’s just sensible to sell cold beer in Oxford,” Kruse said. “If companies have the refrigeration storage for drinks, it only makes sense to include beers. It keeps the beer fresh and and improves the taste.”

UM student presents abstract in London conference By Caty Cambron



In March, junior mathematics and philosophy major Eleanor Anthony traveled to Vercelli, Italy, and discovered what has became one of her life’s passions. As part of the Lazarus Project, a group of people specializing in the multispectral imaging of cultural heritage pieces sponsored by The University of Mississippi, Anthony visited the Museo del Tesoro del Duomo. It was here that Anthony first laid eyes on the Vercelli Book. While studying the Vercelli Book and conducting spectral imaging on the book’s text,

by the Department of Digital Humanities at King’s College London. Her abstract was accepted, and she spent more than a month preparing before traveling to London to give her presentation. “It serves as a testament that we’ve still got part of the conversation playing into what we’re talking about today,” Anthony said. On Sept. 16 Anthony spoke for 20 minutes about a correlation and probabilistic-based approach to transcription methods of damaged manuscripts. Her presentation touched on the history of the Vercelli Book and the ArchiSee LONDON, PAGE 4

Anthony learned the importance of finding ways to successfully transcribe old data and manuscripts. “For me, data and narrative has always been fascinating,” Anthony said. “As humans, we think in terms of narrative, and so much of what we do, as humans, is contributing a piece to a larger conversation.” According to Anthony, going to Italy allowed her to see “a physical instantiation of that conversation that has existed since the 10th century.” In July, Anthony submitted an abstract, a written summary of her own proposal for how transcription methods can be improved, to the DigiPal Symposium, hosted

‘Read a Book’: a call for better living

By: Tim Abram

PATRICIA THOMPSON director and faculty adviser

Rap music is a popular scapegoat for conservative political pundits like Bill O’Reilly to blame for the ills that plague black society. However, I would guess that most scholars who study anthropology, sociology or criminology would contend that rap music does not have the pervasive impact on the decisions of individuals like O’Reilly would suggest. I strongly doubt that concordance exists between the amount of rap music listened to and the number of crimes, or children out of wedlock, one has. It is simply a weak argument in my opinion. However, if concordance were to exist between rap music and subsequent activities, I would hope they would reflect the lyrics of the song “Read a Book” by D’Mite. I have heard plenty of rap songs that objectify women and glorify dealing drugs, but this song by

D’Mite promotes literacy, financial literacy and proper hygiene, among other positive aspects of life we should all strive for. Though the song is thoroughly laced with profanity, which limits young children’s accessibility to it, the adults who listen to it should adhere to the principles D’Mite advocates (and teach them to their children). I will examine the lyrics and illustrate how they are applicable to Mississippi. The chorus of the song simply says, “Read a book, read a book, read a muh’(expletive) book.” Later it says, “Not a sports page, not a magazine, but a book.” Let’s see how this is useful to Mississippians. According to 2011 data from Kids Count, a project of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, 78 percent of fourth graders in Mississippi scored below proficient on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) reading exam. It seems to me that our children are simply not reading enough. However, I would hypothesize that this is the case because of the immense poverty that our children face. An article from the Hechinger Report states, “Children living in poverty hear fewer words and typi-

cally have less access to books and educational experiences.” Though the access to books is highly contingent on the socioeconomic status of the student (which is an atrocity in itself), the profound impact of reading books cannot be undermined. The next few bars of the song speak about raising your children, drinking water, purchasing land (instead of rims or other unnecessary luxuries) and dental hygiene. I will quickly examine how a couple of these can be applicable to Mississippians. For example, according to a recent article from U.S. News, Mississippi had an out-ofwedlock birth rate of 48.1 percent in 2011. Nearly half of the children born in Mississippi that year were born to single mothers. There is a great deal of research that sheds light on the importance of having two parents in the home and the long-term effects of having both parents in the home. Further, many of us are cognizant of the fact that Mississippi perennially ranks as one of the most obese states in the union. What’s one way obesity can be combated? Drinking water. According to a 2010 article in The Economist,

“A team led by Brenda Davy of Virginia Tech has run the first randomized controlled trial studying the link between water consumption and weight loss. A report on the 12-week trial, published earlier this year, suggested that drinking water before meals does lead to weight loss.” Obviously being overweight and obese are different, but the overriding importance of drinking water remains prevalent. In closing, I would like to mention that I am not suggesting that by simply listening to this song, all of our problems will suddenly disappear. But rather to prove two points. One, concordance does not exist between rap music and group activities (as Bill O’Reilly insinuated). Two, rap music, as well as other forms of music, has negative and positive components. Our problems in Mississippi, as well as society at large, should not be written off as simply byproducts of the music we listen to. In my opinion, this oversimplifies the complex problems we face and leads individuals to regurgitate untrue rhetoric, instead of engaging in critical dialogue to address our problems.


Ole Miss marketing revolutionized By Mary Daniel Simpson

The Ole Miss Marketing Organization (OMMO) has been rebranded and restructured to form the student-led organization, the Ole Miss Marketing Agency, or The Agency for short. “This is the death of OMMO and the birth of The Agency,” said J.J. Townsend, The Agency’s founder and chief operating officer. The new organization is structured to build members’ resumes through providing hands-on experience with clients with the goal of preparing students to become competitive professionals. Townsend asks those interested in membership or a staff position to treat it like a campus internship. “The new name is the symbolization of a new concept on the Ole Miss campus. It’s revolutionary,” said Charlie Tran, The Agency’s chief financial officer. The Agency is modeled after a company structure, consisting of an executive board, five staffed departments and an unlimited amount of members. It aims to attract students from numerous fields of study. “I don’t think any other organization can give practical experience to this many different kinds of people,” Tran said. The Agency is particularly looking for students studying marketing, accounting, art, journalism and integrated marketing and communications or those with experience in graphic design software or copywriting. They will be strategically recruiting all semester and plan to have informational booths set up outside the Union and the Meek School of Journalism and New

The Oxford School District and the Oxford Police Department joined with Oxford’s local AT&T store Thursday in an effort to educate students, parents and drivers about the dangers of texting while driving. The event was part of the It Can Wait campaign created by AT&T that urges drivers not to text and drive. “The goal of It Can Wait campaign is to save lives of teens as well as adults who turned texting and driving into everyday lifestyle,” said Gunner Goad, AT&T regional director of corporate external affairs. The Oxford School District and the Oxford Police Department aim to make roads safer by spreading the idea that no text is worth a life. “This is a great opportunity working with businesses creating a collaborative approach to get the point across,” said Kelley Graeber, Oxford School District communications director. Students were able to come in and sign a pledge, or go online to pledge. Individuals who pledged received a free “No Text On Board” sticker. Ole Miss psychology senior Ashley Engler is among those who signed the pledge to not text while driving.

“Texting while driving is a growing concern throughout our country,” Engler said. “I constantly see people swerve in front of me, and when I pass them I see they are looking down with one hand on the wheel. It really scares me that people do not understand how it is not only dangerous to themselves, but to the rest of the drivers on the road.” James Owens of the OPD hopes that some form of legislation will be passed to deter people from texting while driving. “In my travel I see at least eight out of 10 drivers with a mobile device out,” said Owens, major of operations at OPD. “We can only hope they pass legislation against texting and driving in the state of Mississippi.” Driving a vehicle while tex-

ting is six times more dangerous than driving while intoxicated, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Owens said a text message is not worth putting someone’s life in danger. “We see texting while driving every single day,” Owens said. “Anything can happen in the blink of an eye; is one text message really worth it to hurt someone, or worse kill someone?”

There is no age requirement to become a member of The Agency, and, just like in a company, there is plenty of opportunity to progress from regular membership to a staff position. With assistance from its faculty adviser Kathy Wachter, The Agency aims to continue to build. “I would love to see The Agency become known as an entity of Ole Miss,” Townsend said. Ed Meek, former assistant vice chancellor for public relations and marketing at The University of Mississippi and founder and owner of, said The Agency is a great idea and that there is a market for these services in Oxford. The Agency already has clients such as the Oxford locations of Domino’s and Buffalo Wild Wings. They also work for student entrepreneurial companies like junior marketing major Darby Fallon’s company Arm Candy and campus organizations such as Food Action Rebels.

Anthony was the only undergraduate student speaker at the DigiPal Symposium while being among notable paleographers and scholars. The Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College, the College of Liberal Arts, the English department and the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs at Ole Miss sponsored Anthony to travel to London to present her abstract. According to Anthony, her recent presentation serves as the primary research that will

lead to the design and implementation for her capstone project and honors college thesis to be called “Archimedes’ Palimpsest to the Vercelli Book: Dual Correlation and Probabilistic Network Approaches to Paleography in Damaged Manuscripts.” “If anything, I was given great advice about the improvements of my initial start that will be part of my final thesis,” Anthony said. “I’m really thankful for all the support I received.” Anthony’s ultimate goal is to create a computer program that improves transcription methods through looking at the correlation of the word level and by looking at the cause and relationship of words at the sentence level.

New shooting range in Lafayette County

(Rain location: Union Lobby)

By maggie mcdaniel


A new shooting range is to be built on Highway 7 near Abbeville. Joshua Gregory, owner of TCG Outdoors, has come up with a plan to build a safe shooting range that welcomes everyone in the county. “Unfortunately, there is nowhere in Lafayette County to legally shoot unless you own private land,” Gregory said. “And most people do not have access to private land. Lafayette County needs a safe place for people to shoot.” The first phase of the range has been completed, and it is now open to the public. According to Gregory, construction will soon begin on the other four ranges, which include a 100yard rifle range, a steel target range and training ranges. Depending on the portion of the property cleared, there could be additional ranges built.

Gregory said he hopes all the ranges will be done by the end of the year. Gregory said he thinks the range will bring more business to TCG. The customers will be able to test their new guns, and employees will be able to assist them with shooting. The range is hoping to attract college students with student discounts and discount packages. “Student discounts are a great way to help save students money, and I also feel it is a great way to get more people into the great sport of shooting,” said John Blake Riddle, a senior marketing major. Riddle has been an avid duck hunter most of his life. “I usually do not have many choices of places to shoot recreationally in Oxford,” Riddle said. Before planning the construction of the range, Gregory conducted safety and noise re-

search to address the concerns of the people living around the area. The range meets all NRA guidelines concerning safety. A professional-grade dB meter was also used to measure the sound heard from nearby areas when the range was in use. According to the meter, the sound of passing traffic is louder than the loudest firearms Gregory has. Although Gregory has no problem taking necessary safety precautions, he does not see the range causing any issues. “In fact, I plan on building a home on the same property,” Gregory said. “I have three young boys, ages 7 years, 5 years and 4 months. I wouldn’t build a home close to the range if I thought there were any safety concerns. “The store has always been a family-friendly environment, and the range will be no different.”


University Museum ranked top 20 in nation By Joanie Sanders

The University of Mississippi Museum was recently ranked number 17 on the list of the 20 Best College Art Museums. The museum is ranked among those of many big name universities including University of Texas, Princeton, Harvard, and Yale. The Complex Art and Design website lends the museum’s success to its ability to “balance their dedication to the local community with a commitment to expanding student’s world views.” The museum houses several permanent collections including Southern folk art, Greek and Roman antiquities, 19th century scientific instruments, and American fine art. The museum also owns and manages two historic homes including Rowan Oak, home of Nobel and Pulitzer Prize-winning author William Faulkner, and the Walton-Young Historic House, home of the late critic and satirist Stark Young. Librarian and freshman EDHE teacher Melissa Dennis comments, “Each fall, I take my EDHE 105 class, like many other instructors, on a walk through the woods to Faulkner’s House. Bill is an expert tour guide for Rowan Oak who teaches students about William Faulkner’s legacy. I think it is a great experience for freshmen to see firsthand how a famous Oxonian lived, and hope the walk and tour of the house inspire them to reflect on their own paths at Ole Miss.” Additionally, the museum houses temporary exhibits and is currently housing a collection called, Recollecting: 1980-2012, works by Ron Dale. Funding from the museum comes from the University annual budget, contributed supports from multiple locations including donations and grants, and an earned income from museum admissions and the gift store. The museum’s main focus is to enhance learning at Ole Miss. The staff is dedicated to preserve


art, science, and history while educating the community about the cultural heritage of the American South and Mississippi. Several activities are offered through the museum including lectures, demonstrations, educational workshops, community functions, exhibits, and events for children. The Museum Education Department also works with several administrative branches on campus in providing internships for future and current museum professionals. “Inclusion in national recognition of this nature provides a wide range of benefits to museums, from morale-building and wider funding opportunities, to enhanced exhibition and program partnership opportunities with peer institutions. This honor comes at a time when we are dynamically expanding our exhibition, program and educational impacts and outreach. On behalf of the entire museum staff, and all of the museum’s many supporters and friends, I express our gratitude and our sincere pleasure at this news,” said museum director, Robert Saarino. The staff and supporters dedication to the University Museum is evident through all that has been accomplished. The museum and all it has to offer benefits the Ole Miss community and the Oxford community as a whole. It serves as a cultural center and a window of knowledge into the past for all who visit. “I feel like students don’t take advantage of all of the great things the museum has to offer. I personally would like to start attending some of the workshops,” said sophomore journalism major, Maggie Durnien. “Working at the UM Museum over the last two years, I’m always sad when students say, “Wait, we have a museum?” The staff uses about eight full-time people and still manages to pull off an incredible array of exhibitions and programming.  As an education intern, I have so much fun teaching the children, but also love the fact that I have so many opportunities

to go out into the community and be involved as well. The Museum is probably the best place to work on campus, and I’m so glad that my colleagues and friends are getting nationally recognized.  Hopefully, more people will come to the Museum to see how well deserved this honor really is,” said junior international studies and Chinese major as well as education intern, Steven Mockler.

Four Downs: Bye Week

In this week’s edition of Four Downs, The Daily Mississippian football beat writers Matt Sigler and John Luke McCord and sports editor David Collier answer four questions regarding the week’s matchup.

1. Through three games, how surprised are you with Ole Miss’ hot start? Matt Sigler (@SigNewton_2): I anticipated this team would be sitting at 2-1 at this point, but it has definitely been a surprise so far. Defensively, especially against Texas, the team is a lot further along than anticipated, and it seems the offense has found a rhythm three games in. John Luke McCord (@JLgrindin): Had you told me this would be the case coming into the season, I would have been a bit surprised. However, after watching them play so far, it is easy to see they are a better team than most expected them to be in year two under Freeze. Also, before the season, Texas looked to be a loss, but obviously after a loss at BYU, the perception of the Longhorns changed. David Collier (@DavidLCollier): They’ve surprised me a lot. I thought the offense would score some points early in the year, but the way they’ve battled back in their two tough games has been impressive, especially doing it on the road.

2. In the second half against Texas, Ole Miss had

their best defensive half. Is this the defense to expect going forward? Sigler: I think in spots you will see it, but when playing in the SEC, no defense will perform like that consistently. It was a near flawless half for the Rebels, but with the schedule coming up, don’t expect to see it as much. McCord: I expect that is the type of defense they are capable of being, but I’m not sure it what we will see all the time. I think they adjusted and figured out the Texas offense. I think when this defense is fully healthy they can consistently be that good. Collier: You have to be cautiously optimistic. I think the defense turned a corner against the Longhorns, but they won’t be able to stay in their base defense and have success against everyone. The next few weeks will make them figure things out in a hurry.

3. Have your expectations for this season changed after beginning the year 3-0? Sigler: I think there is a little more upside, but ultimately, I still have this team at seven regularseason wins, nine at the maximum. McCord: I think the expectations have definitely risen with the fans. I think people are beginning to expect eight or nine wins, but this schedule still presents very tough games in Alabama, Texas A&M and LSU. Also tricky matchups against Auburn, Missouri and Mississippi State. Collier: They have. I didn’t think they could get a win at Tex-

Ole Miss sets record for season ticket sales

as, but after what they’ve shown so far, I think you have to expect wins in the last five games as well as having a shot against Auburn, Texas A&M and LSU. Injuries could totally change things for the worse, though.

4. Ole Miss is only in year two under head coach Hugh Freeze, but how close are they to competing with the SEC’s elite teams? Sigler: I think they are close. After last season’s performances against Alabama, Texas A&M and LSU, I think people are beginning to see that this team can hang with the big dogs. I wouldn’t be surprised to see them take one down this season. McCord: I think Ole Miss can be a threat to the SEC West elite this season and next season. However, in 2016 when Hugh Freeze will have signed the 2014 and 2015 classes, the Rebels will be expected to be and should be very competitive among the SEC’s top tier. Collier: They’re getting closer, but still have a ways to go. Right now, they could upset someone, but they need more depth before they can really compete for a championship in this league. The momentum they’re building will help on the recruiting trail, which will ultimately determine how soon Ole Miss has the talent to win a title.

Ole Miss has achieved its goal of selling out of football season tickets, as the athletics department announced it has sold the full allotment of 50,386, which is a school record for season tickets distributed. A limited number of individual game tickets still remain for the Idaho, Arkansas, Troy and Missouri games. Fans are encouraged to act quickly by visiting the ticket site or calling 888-REB-TKTS. “The first step in the championship process is selling out Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, and Rebel Nation has responded in a big way by helping our program reach this milestone,” said Athletics Director Ross Bjork.

“With our team’s strong start and our fans’ tremendous support, it’s a great time to be a Rebel. “For those that did not have the opportunity to purchase a season ticket, please take advantage of the remaining single game tickets and join us at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium to help provide our players a great home field advantage.” This year’s season ticket number tops the previous highs of 50,009 in 2009 and 48,180 in 2004. While the 2009 season was a sellout, a smaller allotment was set aside for season tickets that year, and more single game tickets were distributed.

Lady Rebels gear up for SEC play Ole Miss set to host Rebel Classic OLE MISS SPORTS INFORMATION

After starting the year with a strong showing in nonconference play, the Ole Miss women’s soccer team will begin its “real season” on Friday when the Lady Rebels open up Southeastern Conference play with a road trip at Arkansas. The Rebels (6-1-1) will travel to Fayetteville to take on an Arkansas team looking to rebound from its first loss of the season. That loss, a 2-1 double-overtime decision to TCU, dropped the Lady Razorbacks out of the top-25 rankings. Ole Miss head coach Matt Mott heralded the performance of his team thus far in his weekly press conference on

Monday, noting that experience and continuity of the back line were big factors in the two previous games, both wins for the Rebels. Mott also praised his scorers, particularly the strong performances from senior forward/ midfielder Mandy McCalla and senior forward Rafaelle Souza in last weekend’s matches. “Certainly we’re strong up top, good in the back, but our midfield has been dominant,” Mott said. Arkansas (7-1) is looking to build on its 5-0 start at home. Last year, the Razorbacks won only six games at home all season, and only three in the conference. Last week, they were the No. 25 team in the nation, according to the NSCAA poll.

That was the first time the team had achieved a national ranking in program history. Last season’s matchup in Oxford was a 4-1 win for the Rebels, led by two goals each from Souza and McCalla. Those two players are currently tied for the Rebels’ goal-scoring lead and will look to add to their totals against freshman goalkeeper Cameron Carter on Friday. Friday’s match is scheduled for a 7 p.m. start in Fayetteville. The Lady Rebels will also wrap up nonconference play this weekend when they head home to face Arkansas-Little Rock at the Ole Miss Soccer Complex at 5 p.m. on Sunday.

Coming off a 3-1 week at the TCU Nike/Molten Invitational in Fort Worth, Texas, the Ole Miss volleyball team (7-3) returns home to host the Rebel Classic on Friday and Saturday at the Gillom Sports Center. The Rebels will face Southern Miss on Friday at 7 p.m. CT, followed by a doubleheader Saturday against Chattanooga (11 a.m. CT) and Louisiana-Lafayette (7 p.m. CT). “We haven’t hosted two tournaments in quite some time,” Ole Miss volleyball head coach Joe Getzin said. “We’re looking forward to being back at home for the next couple of weeks. What that allows us to do is get a little more training time in. It allows us to work on some things as we go forward. “Offensively, we’ve got to continue to work on producing bet-


ter numbers and getting more kills per swing. We have different styles of teams in the Rebel Classic this weekend, a little bit scrappier than what we face in the SEC. That’s always a point where you have to stay patient.” Ole Miss went 3-1 in the Lonestar State last week, defeating Grambling State, Stephen F. Austin and Houston by 3-0 scores before falling to tournament-host TCU in front of a raucous environment in five sets. The Rebels recorded their second and third highest hitting percentages of the rally scoring era at the TCU Nike/Molten Invitational. Ole Miss hit at a .425 clip in a 3-0 victory over Stephen F. Austin, and hit .419 one match earlier in a 3-0 win over Grambling State. Sophomore Ty Laporte and senior Kara Morgan were each named to the all-tournament team for their play. Laporte averaged 2.75 kills per set on a .458 hitting percentage, and 1.42 blocks per set, which was highlighted by an eight-block assist performance vs. Houston. Morgan averaged a team-high 2.86 kills per set and also added 1.43 digs per set. For the season, Laporte is averaging a team-high 2.58 kills per set. After starting each of the four matches in Fort Worth, freshman setter Aubrey Edie is averaging 8.38 assists per set, and fellow freshman Kristen Brashear is averaging 3.89 digs per set from the libero position. Defensively at the net, sophomore middle blocker Nakeyta Clair has been fantastic with a 1.26 blocks per set average, which is the third best in the SEC.
