Students balance Greek life and other involvement By Jessi Ballard jaballar@go.olemiss.edu

As the Panhellenic and Interfraternity Councils host formal sorority and fraternity recruitment this week, hundreds of freshmen will receive bids to join Greek organizations. It is no secret that sorority and fraternity commitments take up a large part of a student’s time. This intensive commitment may be the reason there is a lack of athletes, ROTC members and band members involved in Greek life. “There weren’t any athletes in my pledge class,” said Kelle Esherick, senior hospitality management major and former Kappa Alpha Theta. “I don’t think people usually do both.” She mentioned that despite the lack of athletes in her pledge class, the sorority definitely looked for people who were well rounded and involved in the school and community. Junior Phi Kappa Psi and

ROTC Army member Andrew Mann said he doesn’t think his involvement with both ROTC and Greek life benefited or hurt him in any way during recruitment. However, Mann, a junior criminal justice major, did say that his dual involvement makes things a bit more stressful for him. “This past week I missed part of rush because of ROTC, and in the past I’ve had to miss things because I had to drill for the National Guard.” Mann maintained that when it comes down to it, ROTC comes first. Junior exercise science major Taylor Irby, track and field high jumper and member of the Kappa Delta sorority, said she feels she has more stress than the average student. “It’s pretty frustrating sometimes when I’m sitting in class and hear people talk about being tired or stressed,” she said. “I wouldn’t want it any other way. I love track and my team and I love my sorority sisters.”

Irby and Mann both encourage students with other commitments to still go through recruitment. Mann said there are benefits of being dually involved. He gets to spend time with different people with different goals and attitudes. He did mention that other students should first consider their schedules to decide if they can do both activities. Ole Miss Assistant Director of Bands Randy Dale, a 2001 graduate, said that when he was a student, the pressure of involvement in multiple campus organizations greatly affected his decision not to rush. He said being in band or similar activities allows students to feel that joining a fraternity or sorority is unnecessary. “Talk to other students who have done it first,” Dale said. “Get an idea and feel out what you’ll be doing. Sometimes students don’t realize the commitments that you take on until it’s time for midterms.”

Student Union crosswalk causes frustration By Amina Al Sherif aalsher@go.olemiss.edu

KAYLA MACARTY | The Daily Mississippian

The crosswalk in front of the Student Union gets crowded in between class last Wednesday.

OPINION: Voter ID just makes

Every student and visitor who drives or walks through The University of Mississippi campus is acutely aware of the obstacle of crossing the Student Union crosswalk, whether by vehicle or on foot. Moving like a slow-motion Tetris game, the Union crosswalk delays vehicle traffic due to heavy pedestrian movement between classes, or vice versa, depending on whether you are behind the wheel or trying to get to class. According to Isaac Astill, director of parking and transportation, nearly 12,000 parking stalls are filled every day with traffic on campus, indicating that almost as many vehicles drive through campus on a daily basis. Ron Biggs, the general manager of Oxford Transit

Management, which runs the O.U.T bus system, confirmed that the culprit crosswalk causes buses to fall anywhere from 10-20 minutes behind schedule, at times causing the entire transit system to lag in schedule. “In many cases, a passenger ends up waiting a longer period of time waiting on a connecting bus,” Biggs said. The holdup of vehicle traffic at the crosswalk has caused emotions to rise. Sara Arnold, publications editor for the Southern Foodways Alliance in Barnard Observatory, drives her vehicle across the crosswalk every day and said that “people in cars get very aggravated” when held up behind the wheel, and the holdups can last anywhere from five to 10 minutes. Cobra Security employees said that while the crosswalk

does not affect them, it definitely affects the four-way stop by backing up traffic moving toward the Union. Oftentimes a University Police Department officer is seen directing traffic at this narrow chokehold. Astill said the Ole Miss campus is migrating toward being a pedestrian campus where more and more vehicles will only be allowed on the perimeter. John T. Edge, director of the Southern Foodways Alliance in Barnard Observatory, said he believes the campus should be primarily pedestrian, as the campus’ priority is the students being able to move from class to class. “The problem is the cars, not the students,” Edge said.

Voter ID just makes sense By Trenton Winford tgwinford@bellsouth.net

PATRICIA THOMPSON director and faculty adviser

After the recent Supreme Court decision striking down the formula in the Voting Rights Act, numerous states that had been under preclearance announced intentions to move forward with voter identification laws that would have been denied by the Justice Department. Among those states are Texas, North Carolina and Mississippi. The Justice Department, though, plans to sue North Carolina over its voter ID law. Attorney General Eric Holder claims that such a law disproportionately impacts black voters, despite a decision by the Supreme Court concerning an Indiana voter ID law that determined voter ID laws are constitutional. A common argument in favor of voter ID laws hinges on the necessity of photo identi-

fication in everyday life. Proponents point out that photo identification is needed for individuals to exercise such rights as purchasing a firearm, purchasing alcohol and applying for a permit to assemble. Further, photo identification is needed to board an airplane, cash a check, apply for and receive welfare, drive a car and register for voting. An individual must present photo identification to register to vote. Thus, every individual that is registered to vote should be able to present photo identification when they go to the polls. On the other hand, opponents to voter ID laws will claim that poor, rural individuals will find it difficult to obtain photo identification for reasons such as lack of reliable transportation, distance from a DMV office or inability to pay for necessary documents. Interestingly, these in-

dividuals do not have an issue getting to the polls. Additionally, if these individuals are on welfare, they must have a photo identification to receive benefits anyway. Opponents argue that voting is a constitutionally granted right that cannot be violated by undue burdens such as voter identification. In the Indiana case, the Supreme Court decided that voter identification laws do not place an undue burden on the voter, but that does not get in the way of Holder’s agenda. What the opposition seems to forget whenever that argument is made is that the following rights are granted within the Constitution: assembling, possessing a firearm, purchasing alcohol and paying taxes. Each of those rights requires the presentation of photo identification at some point in the process. However, Holder will surely

avoid those issues when he argues that the right to vote cannot be burdened by such an obstructive hurdle. Let’s put it all in perspective, though. The right to vote is pivotal to the United States’ democratic nature. Without a strong voting process, the republic essentially means nothing. For some, this means that access to the polls should be of utmost importance, even to the point that the window is open for fraud. Others, however, will want to take necessary measures to safeguard the process. In today’s world, with technology making it all too easy for identities to be stolen, is it really so bizarre to think it could happen to the voting process?

Become a catalyst for diversity and equality

By Adam Blackwell ablackwe@go.olemiss.edu

The face of America is changing. When Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean blue and discovered the New World, he could have never imagined what it would become. Even the America of the 1950s and ‘60s, the America of great social change, was not similar to the cultural melting pot we’ve reached today. America is closer to reaching its “melting pot” status than ever before. As social studies students in the ‘90s, we were all taught that America was considered a “melting pot” — many different cultures and groups melting into one. The idea of an American culture is finally showing a mix of many different cultures and groups. This year, the first Indian-American woman won Miss America. Last year, we

elected the first black president to a second term in office. Last year, more women were elected to Congress than ever before. In the past two years, President Obama has appointed more openly gay and female judges to positions than any president before. We are no longer an America controlled by the firm grasp of the heterosexual white male order. Admittedly, many places are still controlled by this old order. Mississippi, and the Southern region in general, is one such place. Mississippi has never elected a minority governor. More women are beginning to appear in leadership positions across the state, but where are the racial minorities? Only one minority represents our state in the United States Congress; this statistic cannot be representative of Mississippi and its people. Mississippi’s homogeneity in leadership streams into our own university. Thankfully, though, the grasp of the order is not nearly what it once was. Women now hold high positions of leadership, both

within the Lyceum and Associated Student Body. We see glimpses of racial diversity in our leadership and across the campus, though I’m sure it is not what it could or should be. We also see politically diverse people in positions of power on our campus. Our university leadership is progressing, but the order still seems to have a grasp on our community. This problem has deep roots historically, socioeconomically and culturally. We don’t want to end up with the same story as the legendary “machine” and the University of Alabama. I started to say here that we do not want to be compared to the University of Alabama at all, in light of recent events. However, I think we do. We want students (and already have many students) whom we can compare to the few sorority members at Alabama. They were brave enough to stand up for equality and stand up against the old order. Their story of fighting for the common good and creating opportunity for others should be emulated here. The only way we can create

change, especially within our own community, is to stand up. Many people before us have done so. Medgar Evers and thousands of others stood up for racial equality. Fannie Lou Hamer stood up for racial and gender equality. Hundreds of people stand up every day for marriage equality by living openly in a state where it is frankly difficult to do so. All of these people felt discomfort. All of these people felt vulnerability. But, by overcoming these fears, they achieved greatness for us. Now, it’s our turn to achieve greatness for the future. Do not sit by quietly and accept the status quo. Do not let yourself become passive. Passivity feeds the “order.” Passivity feeds inequality. The great, diverse status America has reached can easily and quickly decline. We cannot allow that to happen. Adam Blackwell is a senior public policy leadership major from Natchez.

OPD works with youth to prevent gang activity llrusse2@go.olemiss.edu

They may not be wearing colors or throwing up signs, but Oxford police say there is reason to be concerned about teens and potential gangs in the city. “We have gangs in the sense that there are organized groups of teenagers here,” said Katherine Evans, Oxford Police Department housing agent. “Are they huge criminal enterprises like what you see in large areas? Are there a lot of gang-related crimes? No. Not yet. ‘Yet’ being the operative word.” To keep the problem from growing, police are moving into some neighborhoods and reaching out to adolescents

with a positive message. “As law enforcement, we can’t be a negative group of people. We’ve got to be positive. We’ve got to be in the community,” said Jeff McCutchen, OPD sergeant of investigations. “The kids and the parents have got to know us so that when their kids are going down this path, or when we see it, we can address it, but we can address it from a positive standpoint.” In one effort, the police have teamed up with Oxford Housing Authority to form what is known as OPD’s Housing Division. Agents assigned to this field are responsible for overseeing about 1,000 residents in 312 government-funded units.

These officers are on the frontline of curbing what McCutchen calls a “gang-like mentality” that he said has recently surfaced among youths within the city. The officers’ main targets are preteens. “Are you going to necessarily affect a 16-to-18-yearold kid now? Maybe not, but you might get their younger brother,” McCutchen said. Evans, or Miss Kat, as some kids call her, is one of the agents assigned to OPD’s Housing Division. She and others try to mentor children ages six and older in what is known as the Oxford Police Club. They organize activities ranging from arts and crafts to lake days at Sardis and football drills at Rivers Hill Park with former Ole Miss football players. However, it’s not all fun and games. “There are kids in the Housing Authority (housing) that are not being properly taken care of,” Evans said. “Now, that’s not to say that all of them are not. There are some very competent and capable parents that are in the Hous-

ing Authority (housing), but there are also parents there that are not getting children the basic needs. We know that we can’t go to the parents and expect the ones that are not doing it to start doing it just because we ask them to. So, instead we step up, and we take the role.” Using a portion of what the housing authority refers to as “resident funds,” officers such as Evans are able to provide the children who need them necessary toiletries, such as soap, toothpaste and deodorant. For Tykia Gipson, an 11-year-old member of the Oxford Police Club, the experience has changed the way she views local law enforcement. “I used to be scared of the police,” Gipson said. “Hanging around Miss Kat really helped with that. They’re not going to arrest you for nothing. They just want to be friends with you. They are willing to put their life on hold to have you safe from harm.” As for Evans, she is cautiously optimistic about the impact of the gang preven-

tion program. “I hope that we’re making a small difference. I know that we’re not making a huge difference,” Evans said. “We all know that. We know that we cannot change what they go home to everyday in an event every two weeks. You know, we have realistic expectations, but as long as we have a glimmer of hope, we’ll continue to do the programs as long as we’re able.”

Lady Rebs start 0-2 in SEC play

FRIDAY: ARKANSAS 3, OLE MISS 0 Extra-point losses in each of the opening two sets were too much to overcome for the Ole Miss volleyball team (10-3, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) as the Rebels lost 3-0 (24-26, 28-30, 18-25) to Arkansas on Friday evening at the Gillom Sports Center. Playing in its SEC opener, the Rebels and Razorbacks (8-4, 1-0 SEC) played backand-forth, tight volleyball for each of the opening two sets. In the first set, the two teams were tied on nine different occasions and exchanged leads four times. The second set proved to be even closer, as the two teams were tied 21 times and exchanged leads seven times. “I saw some really good volleyball,” Ole Miss head coach Joe Getzin said. “Hats off to Arkansas, they did a nice job tonight. We battled real well in sets one and two and a couple plays here and there and the scores could have easily been flipped.” Freshman right side Melanie Crow registered a team-

high 11 kills, while freshman setter Aubrey Edie had teamhighs in assists (33) and digs (11). Junior outside hitter Marie-Pierre Bakima tallied nine kills, and sophomore middle blocker Ty Laporte had seven kills of her own. SUNDAY: NO. 3 FLORIDA 3, OLE MISS 0 Sophomore middle blocker Nakeyta Clair had a teamhigh 11 kills, but the Ole Miss volleyball team (10-5, 0-2 Southeastern Conference) fell 3-0 (13-25, 22-25, 12-25) to No. 3 Florida on Sunday afternoon at the Gillom Sports Center. “We played two very good teams (this weekend) and we competed well at times,” Ole Miss head coach Joe Getzin said. “The thing we have to do is - we showed we can compete, including against Florida in the second set we’re going to have to learn how to compete from the start of the match to the end of the match.” Behind Clair’s nine kills, junior Marie-Pierre Bakima, freshman Melanie Crow and

Sanders returns, passing attack even more lethal By Tyler Bischoff tfbischo@go.olemiss.edu

After missing the first three games of the season due to a broken collarbone, junior wide receiver Vince Sanders made his return to game action on Saturday against Alabama. He didn’t have a huge impact in the loss, as he had zero receptions on two targets as the entire offense was kept off of the scoreboard, but Sanders could be a difference maker going forward for the Rebel offense. “I was very excited just to be back out there, being a part of the team again,” Sanders said. “There was a little bit of rust. I had one pass I dropped. Hopefully, it’ll be better next week.” Sanders was the number two receiver for the Rebels last season. His 504 yards and four touchdowns were second only to junior wideout Donte Moncrief in 2012. He ended the season hot as all four of his touchdowns came in the final six games of last season, and he averaged 53.3 yards per game in that stretch. His four touchdowns are important for the Rebel offense as junior quarterback Bo Wallace hasn’t consistently found all of his options for touchdowns. Last season, Sanders and Moncrief were the

only receivers to catch more than two touchdowns from Wallace. JaMes Logan, Randall Mackey, Korvic Neat and Jeff Scott, who all caught at least 20 passes last season, combined for three receiving touchdowns. This year, only Moncrief and freshman tight end Evan Engram have caught touchdowns. Logan, Scott, freshman receiver LaQuon Treadwell and senior receiver Jordan Holder have combined to catch 46 passes this season, but zero have gone for six points. Sanders will look to be another receiver capable of finding the endzone, as he caught a touchdown every 9.75 passes in 2012, which was better than both of the All-SEC first team wide receivers, Jordan Matthew (Vanderbilt) and Cobi Hamilton (Arkansas). Schematically, the biggest difference Sanders can have is pushing Logan, a senior, back to the slot. Since Sanders has been out, Logan has been playing as one of the wide receivers rather than his usual slot position. Ole Miss can lineup Sanders and Moncrief on the outside and Treadwell and Logan on the inside to create matchup problems when the Rebels use their four receiver, one running back formations. That excludes Engram, who has been a surprise by pulling in

13 catches for 189 yards and two touchdowns. Engram has lined up as both a tight end and slot receiver this season. Sanders gives the Rebels more options. They can move Engram around in the formation. Logan can play the slot or wide receiver position, plus Treadwell can line up in the backfield, as he did multiple times against Alabama. When lining up as a back, Treadwell threw a pass, caught a pass and had a carry, as Ole Miss tried to use his versatility. Sanders will be called upon to help the outside running game of Ole Miss. The downfield blocking of the receivers has been a key to senior running back Jeff Scott’s early season success. On Scott’s 75 yard touchdown run against Vanderbilt, Moncrief and Engram threw two important blocks near the sideline that allowed Jeff Scott to cut back and score. “We already got the mindset. We can’t be selfish,” Sanders said of receiver blocking. “If we block on the outside then we are going to open up lanes down the field for the running backs or whoever got the ball. So we take pride in blocking.” For continuing coverage of Ole Miss football, follow @Tyler_RSR and @ thedm_sports on Twitter.

Freeze, Rebels putting Alabama behind them By DAVID COLLIER thedmsports@gmail.com

After a 25-0 loss to No. 1 Alabama this past weekend, No. 24 Ole Miss will get ready to face a rebuilding Auburn team looking to keep momentum going after a 3-1 start to the season. “We’re excited to get back on the field after last week’s loss,” Rebel head coach Hugh Freeze. “We’re 5-1 in the last six games that we’ve played, which we think has provided a very good foundation in where we are headed with the program. “Moving on to Auburn, they remind me a lot of us last year. They’re a very, very hungry team that plays with great emotion, energy and passion. It doesn’t surprise me at all with Gus’ (Malzahn) leadership. I know that they’re off

to a great start. They have been very, very good at home, which we’ve got to go there. It’s another road trip in a hostile environment on a Saturday night.” Freeze was also asked about the drama surrounding Alabama staffer Tyler Siskey, who was spotted during ESPN’s broadcast of Saturday’s game looking through binoculars and suspected to be stealing signals from the Ole Miss offense. Siskey was a staffer at Ole Miss last season. “I don’t know where he typically is,” Freeze said. “Certainly, I’ll say that Alabama had a wonderful defensive plan for us. I give them a lot of credit for the work that they put in in preparing for us, whether it was in the summertime or just in the week. Nick (Saban) and Kirby (Smart) are two of the best in the business. Not that they need a lot

of help in preparing a game plan, but I’m sure Siskey helped in some way. “Tyler Siskey is a good man. I hate that it’s been quite the drama. Did I feel like they had an excellent plan? For whatever reason, I did. I’m sure Nick prepares just like any of us would. I’m ready to move on to Auburn.” And the Rebels need that mindset to get a win this week in a hostile environment. Freeze and Tiger head coach Gus Malzahn are good friends and share the same knowledge and belief of offenses, so the two schools should be able to simulate each other’s offenses in practice this week, according to Freeze. However, Freeze said their ability to do multiple things will present challenges to the Ole Miss defense. “Both of us can change a lot during the course of the week,” Freeze said. He’s got two weeks to do whatever he’s going to do. I know that he’ll dress things up and have some wrinkles we haven’t seen. We are very, very similar in the things we do offensively. We can help prepare, but you never know exactly what to prepare for. We’ll show them everything that our defense wants to see. There will be something we don’t cover that we’ll see Saturday night.”
