racial progress panel wraps up integration events A panel of four Ole Miss community members led a discussion at the Overby Center regarding the racial development the university has made since its integration in 1862, concluding the events surrounding the 50 years of integration celebration.

have a unique experience with The University of Mississippi,” Sansing said. “One was here during the Meredith crisis, one came here because James Meredith broke the color bar-
rier and the other acclimates students to university life.” Charles Overby, for whom the Overby Center is named, said it was an amazing opportunity for the university to hold
such an event. “We’ve been privileged to be able to host a number of programs in connection with the 50th anniversary of James Meredith entering Ole Miss
Man arrested and charged with Lexington Pointe bomb threat Oxford resident Collin Jones has been charged with making a bomb threat concerning vehicles at Lexington Pointe on Sept. 18. BY JENNIFER NASSAR firstname.lastname@example.org
Oxford Assistant Police Chief Joey East confirmed that 35-year-old Collin Jones of Oxford has been arrested and charged with making a false bomb threat. On the morning of Sept. 18, Oxford police responded to a call about a bomb threat at Lexington Pointe involving the vehicle of an Ole Miss football player. A suspect was arrested within a few hours of the threat but not charged. Two individuals were arrested during the course of the investigation, according to East.
“The first arrest was a suspect of interest, and he was arrested on a different charge,” East said. “Then Mr. Jones came into the picture during the investigation.” East said that over the course of the investigation, Oxford police discovered that Jones worked at the bomb threat location. “Anyone that’s around is a possible suspect,” he said. It took Oxford police several days of interviewing people and going through phone records. “We were able to narrow it down, and Mr. Jones was arrested for it,” East said. The first individual was ar-
rested for auto burglaries and other things not related to the bomb threat incident, according to East. Jones was taken to the Lafayette County Jail and bond was set at $10,000. “I’m assuming he may have made bond by now,” East said. With recent bomb threats at universities across the nation, East has urged students, faculty and citizens to take proper precautions. “Everybody ought to take any threat (seriously) and should try to cooperate with law enforcement whether it’s the university or OPD,” he said.

COMMEMORATIVE BIKE RIDE SUNDAY
COURTESY OXFORD CRIME REPORT
Trunk Show with Patrick Woodyard Thursday, October 11 from 12-8 p.m.
A bike ride on Sunday, Oct. 7 will take place in honor of Kevser Ermin, a doctoral student of exercise science who died on Oct. 7, 2011, after she was hit by a car while riding her bike on Highway 314. The bike ride will start at the Lyceum at 2:17 p.m. and go to the accident location where the ghost bike, a memorial for bicyclists hit or killed on the street, is located. The time is specifically 2:17 p.m. for Ermin’s birthday on Feb. 17.
Professor and historian David Sansing hosted a discussion at the Overby Center for Southern Journalism and Politics Thursday morning to assess the progress made at The University of Mississippi since the enrollment of James Meredith. The panel was composed of Sansing; Donald Cole, assistant provost and assistant to the chancellor concerning minority affairs; Valeria Ross, assistant dean of students for multicultural affairs and volunteer services; and former provost Gerald Walton. Nearly 120 students, faculty, administrators and other community members were in attendance. Sansing prefaced the event by providing his perspective on the importance of the panel discussion. “The three people who are going to speak this morning
and the opening up of the previously closed Mississippi society,” Overby said. Chancellor Dan Jones appreciated the panel’s discussion. “We’ve had a compressed opportunity about the difficulties of our past and to think about the past and future,” Jones said. Walton compared his memories of 1962 to what is happening now. “While we still have a long way to go, I think we have made some magnificent strides,” he said. Cole then delivered an address about the experience he had when he enrolled in the university in 1968. “It’s the university of the 2000s that is one that I can be so proud of,” he said. Ross discussed the trials she feels black students have faced in the past, along with the success the students have gained.

A closed society BY ANNA RUSH email@example.com
This week marks 50 years of integration at The University of Mississippi. It is important that we take time to reflect on the progress the university has made to transform its obstinate outlook during the civil rights movement to a more open and accepting place. Looking beyond the university, it is much more important to focus on the accomplishments of black alumni as they have followed the legacy of James Meredith in opening up a once closed society. While reflecting on the legacy of Meredith, Cory ChinnLang, a second-year law student, said “I am forever indebted and eternally grateful for the efforts, perseverance and victories of James Meredith and Constance Slaughter Harvey. Their fight for what is right has made law T H E D A I LY

school a very real and accessible opportunity for students throughout the state.” The path to racial equality has been a journey of epic proportions in the Deep South, with a few chapters still left to go. The area of the law in particular has been slow to change. A vast majority of lawyers and law students are white males. Even now, a quick survey of the gender and ethnic make up of our law school’s current study body shows the lingering inequality. For the 157 members of the class of 2012, 101 are males and there are only 31 minority students in the entire class. These numbers are no reflection of the admissions office of the school, but a reflection of a cultural lag in the area of the law. Speaking with several students on why there is such a

gap, some have attributed it to a feeling of being uncomfortable. As much as we try to sweep the past under the rug, we are in the Deep South and there are still individuals who harbor racist or discriminatory feelings. One student said there is a sense of “Why come when we feel like we aren’t wanted,” and another student said that some of his peers have complained that white students never speak to them. ChinnLang said that “integration is more than tolerance, it’s acceptance,” which is a line the Deep South still teeters on. To say that blacks are not still facing an uphill struggle on their journey to racial equality would be a considerable misstatement. To quote Victoria Washington, a second-year law student, “The continuous growth in Ole Miss acceptance of African Americans into its presti-

Surely many of us would like an immediate change, but history and present times show that that is only wishful thinking. Gradual will have to do for now.” Despite the obstacles they faced, the law school has been fortunate enough to have several renowned blacks walk its halls. In 1967, Rueben Anderson became the first black to graduate from the law school. He later became the first black state Supreme Court justice and the first black president for the Mississippi Bar Association. Constance Slaughter Harvey was the first black to receive a law degree from The University of Mississippi. She graduated in 1970, overcoming both gender and racial See INTEGRATION, PAGE 3

adversity. James Meredith’s legacy continued again in 1994 when Louis Westerfield became the dean of the School of Law, the first black to serve as such in Ole Miss history. Looking forward, hopefully the centennial anniversary of James Meredith’s admission into the university will be celebrated with a much more unified student body who better represent our country and state as a whole. We’re in the right direction, but we still have a long way to go. Washington said it best when asked about her experience as an black law student and what it represents. “My enrollment at Ole Miss
has continued the legacy began by James Meredith which was further enhanced and continued by Constance Slaughter-Harvey, the first African American woman to graduate from the university. My presence here, alone, continues the belief in change. To be a student at Ole Miss is evidence. How could it not be? I am a candidate for a Juris Doctor degree from a school who barred the admittance of African Americans only 50 years ago. This is evidence that we are progressing as a state, as a nation, as an institution, as a people. Yet, there is still a long way to go.” Anna Rush is a second-year law student from Hattiesburg.

Susan Barksdale Howorth remembered by scholarship Susan Barksdale Howorth, the late wife of Circuit Court Judge Andrew Howorth, will be remembered by a scholarship established in her name that will be dedicated today at 3:30 p.m. at the Ole Miss Women’s Council rose garden. BY GRANT BEEBE firstname.lastname@example.org
The memory of Susan Barksdale Howorth, daughter of Sally McDonnell Barksdale and wife of Circuit Court Judge Andrew Howorth, will be preserved in a scholarship named in her honor that will benefit education in the fine arts at The University of Mississippi. Howorth, a graduate of the Ole Miss School of Law, died at the age of 44 in February. She was an avid supporter of the arts and an active member of the Ole Miss Women’s Council. In an interview with Ole Miss News, Andrew Howorth said establishing a scholarship at the university was the perfect way to honor the memory of his late wife. “Susan had a thirst for knowledge,” Howorth said. “Susan came from a family with a very strong commit-
ment to education. I think she would be pleased with this scholarship and she would want to make art education more accessible.” Howorth, family and friends have established the fund within the Ole Miss Women’s Council, with $100,000 as the starting gift. Individuals and organizations are invited to contribute. Mary Ann Fruge, chairwoman of the Ole Miss Women’s Council, said she believes the scholarship will be an apt memorial to Howorth. “This scholarship will carry forth in (a) concrete sense Susan’s belief in the power of art in a person’s life and in her belief that you can contribute positively to other people’s lives,” Fruge said. “We are grateful for her husband and family choosing to honor Susan in this way — the Women’s Council is humbled to have the scholarship.”
continued from page 1 “The campus community has never been more attractive than it is today,” Ross said. Marketing communications major Chloe Dallas said that although she didn’t know much about the history of Ole Miss, the program taught her a lot about the people who have been involved in the integration celebration. “I think (Ole Miss) has come really far, especially with the homecoming queen and ASB president being African American,” she said. The panel was the conclusion of events surrounding the 50th anniversary of the university’s integration. “Freedom of speech is alive and well,” Jones said.
COURTESY THE UM FOUNDATION
The late Susan Barksdale Howorth – here with a younger Stewart, left, and Marian Howorth – will be remembered as a dedicated and loving mother, wife, daughter, sister, and friend. Her interests and talents in artistic pursuits will live on through an Ole Miss Women’s Council Scholarship in her name created for art majors at the University of Mississippi.
A dedication ceremony will take place this 3:30 p.m. at the Ole Miss Women’s Council’s rose garden, when the Susan Barksdale Howorth Scholarship will
be announced alongside a scholarship funded by Harry and Vicki Sneed. The event is open to the public, and all are encouraged to attend.

Retired Episcopal Bishop to donate personal integration documents The J.D. Williams Library at Ole Miss is about to receive another donation in honor of the 50 years of integration celebration. Retired Bishop Duncan Gray Jr. plans to give the Oxford and university community his personal documents from 1962. BY AUSTIN JONES email@example.com
Retired Bishop Duncan Gray Jr. of the Episcopal Diocese of Mississippi is donating a personal collection of documents chronicling the period of integration at The University of Mississippi to the J.D. Williams Library special collection of civil rights history. The Civil Rights collection housed within the J.D. Williams Library Archives and Special Collections contains writings from notable personalities including James Meredith. Current Bishop of the Mississippi diocese and Gray Jr.’s son, Duncan Gray III, hopes his father’s donation will tell the story of integration in a different way. “I think what (viewers of this collection) will see is a pastor, a priest trying to do his job,” he said. “(My father) saw himself being placed in a particular moment at a particular time and being called by God to respond, not just to the is-
sue, but to the people.” Jennifer Ford, head of Archives and Special Collections, believes the donation will provide another perspective to the collection. “The donation of Gray Jr.’s papers to the archives will be a great addition,” she said. “He went out the night of the riots and begged people to stop the violence.” Gray Jr.’s donation includes personal letters, newspaper clippings, flyers, pamphlets and scrapbooks he compiled. Ford said the library hopes to allow the public to begin viewing the collection in November.
Earl Gray Jr. donated memorability related to the 1962 riots.

‘Looper’: The future of science fiction BY JOSH PRESLEY firstname.lastname@example.org
PHOTOS BY ADDISON DENT | The Daily Mississippian
Crowds pack Off Square Books to watch the taping of Thursday afternoon’s Thacker Mountain Radio. The Yalobushwackers, the show’s house band, performed in spite of the recent loss of their lead singer and guitarist ‘Duff’ Dorrough.
Despite the fact that it came in second to “Hotel Transylvania” at the box office this weekend (damn you, Adam Sandler), “Looper” is a movie that everyone should be seeing, loving and trying to wrap their minds around. This year has brought some major disappointments in the science fiction genre (I’m looking at you, “Prometheus”), but “Looper” makes up for all of them. This is the best science fiction movie to come along in years. Yep, it’s better than “Inception.” Actually, I thought “Inception” was just okay, but I’m getting off-topic. “Looper” is set in 2044, and time travel hasn’t been invented yet. But it will be! And when it is, it is immediately outlawed. That won’t stop the criminal underworld of 2074 from using it, though. Since it’s impossible
to dispose of a body in ’74, the crime bosses send their targets back in time where they are killed by hired guns, the titular “loopers.” Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Joe, who is a pretty successful looper, despite the fact that he is a junkie. He does what he’s told by the crime boss who came back from the future to set the whole thing up (brilliantly played by Jeff Daniels), and he’s saving up his earnings so he can retire to France someday. Then it gets weird. Bruce Willis arrives from the future and escapes Joe and down the rabbit hole we go. I think the trailers have pretty much spoiled that Willis is the older version of Gordon-Levitt’s character. Gordon-Levitt even wears facial prosthetics to look more like Willis. Time travel movies are often difficult to review without giving too much away. Having

seen the movie, I’d say the less you know about it going in, the better. I can tell you, however, that this movie is one of my favorites of the year so far (then again, so was “Dredd,” and it bombed). The actors all do a great job. Gordon-Levitt keeps proving himself as one of the best in the business, Willis brings his A-game, and the supporting actors like Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, Jeff Daniels, Piper Perabo, Garret Dillahunt, and little Pierce Gagnon makes this one of the best supporting casts you could hope for. Willis and Gordon-Levitt play their parts so well that the moment they meet for a conversation at a diner is downright spine tingling. What would you ask your future self it they were sitting across the table from you? What about your past self? The action scenes are fun and there is a fair amount of comedy, but there are also some really dark and downright horrifying moments, too. The world of the future looks suitably futuristic without being too far removed from the current landscape, and the majority of the movie takes place in a rural setting. The movie this most reminded me of was “The Terminator,” though if I told you how and why, I think I’d be spoiling too much. No, Willis isn’t a robot, but there are a lot of similarities in the plots of the two movies if you look for them, and not just that the main female character in both movies is named Sarah. If I’ve been a little vague in this review, I promise it’s for your own good. We deserve movies like this, movies that make us think and reward us for our thinking. I have seen the future of sci-fi, and it is “Looper.” I give the movie five blunderbusses out of five.

Hipp’s Tips: Texas A&M In this week’s installment, The Daily Mississippian football beat writer Bennett Hipp gives his keys to this week’s matchup. BY BENNETT HIPP email@example.com
Third Downs Texas A&M and Ole Miss are at opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to thirddown conversion percentage on both sides of the ball. Offensively, Ole Miss is first in the Southeastern Conference in converting first downs, with a conversion percentage of 51 percent. That number will be put to the test against the Aggie defense, which is allowing opponents to convert just 26 percent of third downs, which is also first in the conference. When the Aggies have the ball, they are fourth in the conference in converting third downs on offense, while Ole Miss is next to last in thirddown conversion percentage on defense, allowing opponents to convert over 42 percent of third downs. It will be a test to see which team’s third-down success continues and which doesn’t. In what could be a close game, one or two key third-down conversions or stops could make all the difference. Moore Problems The Ole Miss offensive line will have its hands full with Texas A&M defensive end Damontre Moore, who has emerged as one of the more explosive players in the conference. On the year, he has 27 tackles, 10 and a half tackles for loss, six sacks, three quarterback hurries and a forced fumble. This is an issue for the Rebels because, as a team, they have allowed the most sacks in the conference. Through five games, Ole Miss has given up 16 sacks to opposing defenses. Slowing down Moore and the rest of a fast, physical Aggie defense will be a tough task for Ole Miss. Texas A&M has racked up 17 sacks on the season, including eight in a season-opening loss to Florida. Johnny Football After primarily using a 4-3 defense against Alabama’s physical running attack, expect Ole Miss to revert back to a 4-2-5 scheme to get as much speed on the field as possible to counteract redshirt freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel. Manziel, the reigning SEC Offensive Player of the Week, racked up 453 passing yards and three passing touchdowns, while adding 104 yards and a score on the ground. Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze raved about Manziel’s ability to extend the play, and stopping that will be
a main focus for the Ole Miss defense. Teams have begun to keep a spy on Manziel in an attempt to keep him in the pocket, and the Rebels will make sure that at least one person will have their eyes on him at all times. Manziel’s improvisation skills when running out of the pocket have been on full display so far this season, and the Rebels’ defense will have to stay disciplined to slow him down.

Four Downs: Ole Miss Rebels vs. Texas A&M Aggies In this week’s edition of Four Downs, The Daily Mississippian football beat writers Bennett Hipp and Matt Sigler, sports editor David Collier and managing editor Austin Miller answer four questions regarding the week’s matchup. Bennett Hipp (@bennetthipp): I think if Bo Wallace starts and plays well, he can take a step toward solidifying himself. I’m not sure one game is enough to make it a done deal, as he’ll have to limit interceptions and turnovers going forward no matter what. Matt Sigler (@SigNewton_2): If Bo Wallace starts, I believe that shows just how much confidence head coach Hugh Freeze is putting in

him, even though he has been shaky lately. David Collier (@DavidLCollier): I think Bo Wallace has a good performance, but a turnover or two will keep him from taking a firm hold of the position. I do think Wallace is the guy for the rest of the year, but there will be competition until he can limit his turnovers. Austin Miller (@austinkmiller): If Bo Wallace starts and plays well, as I expect him to, he will be the starter going forward barring injury. There’s a package for both Barry Brunetti and Randall Mackey in this offense, but it’s not as the starter. Bad decisions and turnovers will happen, but Wallace gives Ole Miss the best chance to win because of his ability to make plays with his arm.
2. What does Ole Miss have to do to contain Johnny Manziel?
Hipp: In order to slow down Manziel, Ole Miss is going to have to play assignment football and always make sure that someone has an eye on the freshman when he rolls out of the pocket. The other key is to avoid missed tackles, which have plagued Ole Miss at times and can allow a player like Manziel to make huge plays with his feet. Mak-

ing the tackle on a five-yard gain is much more important for Ole Miss than trying to make a big hit, missing, and Manziel breaking a 30-yarder down the field. Sigler: Ole Miss will have to keep plenty of speed on the field in order to contain Manziel. I would expect multiple packages with a high number of defensive backs and a constant spy on Manziel most of the game. Collier: It will be interesting to see how the Ole Miss defense plays against the Texas A&M spread after having a good, physical game against Alabama last week. I expect to see a lot of Denzel Nkemdiche and Dehendret Collins to put more speed at linebacker. I think Nkemdiche will be used as a spy on Manziel, but it’s tough to say how much that will work. The biggest issue, however, is having the Ole Miss secondary cover guys for extended periods of time. With Manziel’s ability to extend plays, they have to have really good coverage to not get burned for big plays. Miller: The front four have to get pressure while also containing on the edge, while the back seven have to come up, tackle and make plays like they did against Alabama. There weren’t a lot of big plays because of missed tackles, and that’s what has to happen for Ole Miss on defense. Manziel makes a living on extending plays. Look for Denzel Nkemdiche to spy on Manziel, and Cody Prewitt and Trae Elston to make tackles in space from the safety position. 3. As of Thursday night, the over/under for the game is 65 and a half. Would you take the over or under?

1. Will one of the quarterbacks solidify himself as the starter for the rest of the season?
Hipp: While I expect there to be a good bit of points scored, 65 and a half is a big number, and I don’t think it’ll get quite that high. I could see a number somewhere in the 50s, but 64 is a little high. Sigler: I’ll take the under. See DOWNS, PAGE 11

continued from page 10
I think at some point during the game the defenses will be able to get a few stops to keep the score reasonable. Even though both teams are capable of putting up points, I don’t think this one will reach the 64 mark. Collier: I’m going to take the over. A&M gave up a lot of yards to Arkansas, but the Razorbacks weren’t able to put points on the board. I think Ole Miss will capitalize on those scoring opportunities, and the defense will struggle to hold down the Aggie offense. I think this one will be a shootout, and they’ll surpass 64 total points. Miller: I would take the over. It’s a lot of points, but there are too many explosive players on both sides of the ball. Texas quarterback David Ash had a career day against Ole Miss, and I expect more of the same from the uber-talented Johnny Manziel for Texas A&M. And while Arkansas put up only 10 points against Texas A&M, the Razorbacks did rack up 515 yards of total of-
fense, so Ole Miss will have also have success on offense. 4. What is the key to the game?
Hipp: There’s not a singular key, so I’ll just name one. Ole Miss has to contain defensive end Damontre Moore, who has been a constant presence in opponent’s backfields so far this season. He’s Texas A&M’s best pass-rushing threat, and the Rebels need to keep the pressure off the quarterback to allow for better throws and less turnovers. Sigler: Ole Miss must contain Manziel to win the game. He is too good to let loose, and if he gets loose, he will kill your defense. For Ole Miss to hang in this game, Manziel can’t run wild all over the defense. Collier: The key to this game is to hold on to the football. Texas A&M will get

their points, but if Ole Miss can limit their own mistakes and capitalize on scoring chances, they will be able to match the Aggies and have a chance to pull out a win. Miller: Turnovers and special teams. It’s cliche, but with both offenses as explosive as they are, the team that avoids turnovers, takes advantage of turnovers and keeps it clean on special teams will have a leg up on Saturday. The Ole Miss-Alabama game could have been a game going into the fourth quarter, if not for three interceptions and special teams miscues in the first half, and the Texas A&M-Arkansas game got away from the Razorbacks because of three turnovers.

junior Barry Brunetti split reps all week, and after Thursday’s practice, Freeze said he wanted to look at the film before naming the starter for Saturday. Texas A&M, however, has no questions at quarterback. Redshirt freshman Johnny Manziel has had his way with opposing defenses en route to being the SEC’s fourth leading passer through four games, averaging 273.5 yards per game. Not only is he a threat with his arm, he is also a dangerous runner. Manziel is fifth in the conference in rushing yards per game (91.5 ypg) and has also scored six touchdowns on the ground this season. “He has a lot of things that are impressive,” Freeze said. “He has great speed and mobility. At the end of the day, the guy finds a way to extend play after play. Then, it ends up being a dagger to you. He extends it and scores touchdowns. That’s the most concerning thing.” On the defensive side of the ball, the Rebels will be led by freshman linebacker Denzel Nkemdiche and sophomore safety Cody Prewitt, who have

totaled 32 and 29 tackles, respectively. Both have recorded an interception this season as well. Prewitt and Nkemdiche know though that this week’s main focus will be containing the speedy Manziel. “This week we have a lot of plays where we will always have somebody watching him,” Prewitt said. “The defensive backs are going to stay disciplined with our scramble rules, and if we do that and have somebody watching him at all times, we’ll be good.” Ole Miss’ rushing attack, which ranks fourth in the SEC (223.8 ypg), has a challenge going against the fast Texas A&M defense, which ranks fourth in rushing defense (106.0 ypg) and seventh in total defense (338.5 ypg). =“It’s the fastest defense I think we’ve seen on tape,” Freeze said. “They play with extreme effort, and their speed on the front seven is faster than the ones we’ve seen. No one’s had a lot of success on them. Even in the loss to Florida, there wasn’t very much offense put on them, so I think they do a really nice job.” For continuing coverage of Ole Miss football, follow @thedm_ sports and @SigNewton_2 on Twitter.

Rebels host sec newcomer Texas A&M Ole Miss returns home this weekend to take on Southeastern Conference newcomer Texas A&M. The Rebels are looking to rebound from a 33-14 loss to No. 1 Alabama this past weekend and snap their 15-game SEC losing streak. BY MATT SIGLER email@example.com
The Ole Miss Rebels return to the friendly confines of Vaught-Hemingway Stadium on Saturday night after a twogame road trip, most recently a 33-14 loss to No. 1 Alabama.
The Rebels (3-2, 0-1 SEC) will welcome Southeastern Conference newcomer Texas A&M (3-1, 1-1 SEC) to Oxford for a 6 p.m. kickoff on ESPNU. “We’re looking forward to being back at home and playing a great opponent in Texas A&M, who has gained quite a bit of

confidence since the beginning of the year,” Freeze said. “One of the keys is great quarterback play. Ours is suspect right now and theirs is very, very steady. The system that they run fits him very well. We’ve got our hands full with them. We’re glad it’s at home and look forward to getting back out.” The quarterback position will be a key this weekend for Ole Miss after Freeze said he would open up the competition more in practice this week.
