Homecoming 2012 at Ole Miss The University of Mississippi community celebrates homecoming this week through a variety of free events sponsored by the Student Programming Board and formal celebrations over the weekend to highlight the game. BY GRANT BEEBE

While many are focused on the battle Saturday between the Ole Miss Rebels and the Auburn Tigers, homecoming celebrations are ongoing throughout the week. Numerous free events sponsored by the Student Programming Board (SPB) will take place in front of the Student Union. Jim Mosier, co-director of entertainment at the SPB, describes the events that opened the week as successful. “Yesterday we had a mechanical bull,” Mosier said Tuesday. “I think that the students liked it. And today we had an Unplugged session where Joe Scott sang.” Dean of Students Sparky Reardon said he is excited to see alumni return for Homecoming. “Every weekend is a small

homecoming at Ole Miss,” Reardon said. “This week is a great opportunity to recognize alumni who have come home for a big game.” Homecoming queen Courtney Pearson expressed excitement about this weekend and emphasized the proximity of homecoming celebrations to the anniversary of the university’s integration. “I think that it’s a very interesting time at Ole Miss because just 50 years ago, I wouldn’t even be allowed to attend here,” Pearson said. “I feel very honored; now I get to represent the entire university in various capacities, and that’s great.” “It was never my intention to say, ‘I want to be the first black homecoming queen,’” Pearson said. “It’s great that Ole Miss students love me just as much as I love them and to know that I have had a great experience this week.”

Chancellor Dan Jones is optimistic about this weekend’s game. “This week, in particular, I’m looking forward to an SEC victory in football,” Jones said. “We’re going to beat an SEC team in football this week — I am certain of it.” Homecoming traditions will also make the weekend a special memory for Jones. “One of the traditions is that the homecoming queen and her family sit in my box, and so I get to spend time with the homecoming queen and her family,” Jones said. “When these families come for that experience, it’s a great moment in their lives — to be the homecoming queen at Ole Miss is a big deal, so it’s so much fun to be with those families and to spend time with them.” See HOMECOMING, PAGE 5

The Chancellor and me Chancellor Dan Jones took a walk for some one-on-one time with students on Tuesday and addressed the importance of relationships.

ASB establishes Pride Week



Tuedsay afternoon, about 20 students gathered on the Lyceum steps for a chance to walk and talk with Ole Miss Chancellor Dan Jones. The walk went from the Lyceum, to the Walk of Champions, to the Phi Mu fountain and back to the Lyceum. Chancellor Jones said that relationships he builds with students are very important to him. “This walk is a recognition of that relationship and a formal way for us to spend some time together in a special week,” he said. “I love that our students

Chancellor Dan Jones led the annual homecoming week “Walk with the Chancellor” Tuesday afternoon. During the walk, he invited the students to take turns joining him at the front of the group to talk about whatever they wanted.

On Oct. 5, Associated Student Body president Kimbrely Dandridge declared this week to be Ole Miss Pride Week. Dandridge wanted to recognize the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community for their contributions to Ole Miss. “I was inspired to declare a Gay Pride Week at Ole Miss by my friends who are members of the LGBT community,” she said. “Throughout my time at Ole Miss and throughout my time in office, I have had the privilege of working with members of the LGBT community.” Dandridge said that with in-

dividuals in the LGBT community holding leadership positions on campus through the ASB and the Greek system, it was important to “recognize them as members of this community.” She also said celebrating all diversity on campus is important to her because diversity is what makes Ole Miss a great community. “Without diversity, Ole Miss would not be the prestigious institution that it is.” Assistant Dean of Students Valeria Rose said she is pleased with the initiative. “This week will be a good opportunity for all members of our university community to read and rededicate to live See PRIDE WEEK, PAGE 5

Put your feet in the Mississippi River Please take pride and vote BY MEGHAN HOLMES

Up and down the Mississippi River barge captains nervously navigate historically low waters, which persist despite the storms accompanying Hurricane Isaac. An October 3rd article from WREG Memphis warns, “low water river travel dangerous” and a glance at the article’s contents reveals that in this instance river travel means barge travel. A stretch of the river near Greenville has been intermittently closed since mid-August when one such vessel ran aground, with millions spent in increased shipping costs as water levels remain low (a one inch drop in water levels translates into a seventeen ton cargo reduction). These stories surrounding the drought, like most national news coverage surrounding the lower Mississippi, emphasize the river primarily as a function of commerce. The importance of the river as a shipping channel is indisputable, yet failing to appreciate the river as a water source as well as a diverse habitat harms both the people living in the river basin as well as the larger economic system paradoxically dependent on the quality of this river system it often undermines. In other words: the American economy

needs the river, yet refuses to acknowledge it as anything other than a conduit for commercial resources. Environmental policy governing the river largely mirrors American environmental policy on a larger scale: situations considered threatening to commercial resources receive the most priority. Consider the federal government’s policy towards invasive Asian carp. Funding of federal carp prevention programs primarily focuses on carp removal in the Upper Mississippi and carp prevention in the Great Lakes; the area boasts a $7 billion fishing industry threatened as carp out compete native species for food. The species already thrives on the Lower Mississippi following Mississippi floods allowing its escape from catfish ponds in the 1990s. Regardless federal funding for eradicating the species prioritizes commercial fishing areas while neglecting areas used for transportation purposes. There is nothing wrong with preventing carp from entering the Great Lakes, just as there is nothing wrong with a consideration of economic factors in an environmental analysis. What is troubling is the underlying assessment of the Mississippi River, and the American environment as a whole, as merely a tool to acquire capital. We should be concerned

about the ecological health of all parts of the river, not just those requiring health for commercial purposes. Generally speaking economic pursuits favor short term reward while environmental interests more often consider long term consequences. This is certainly the case with the river, as efforts to control and maintain navigation channels for shipping and agricultural purposes occasionally result in catastrophic flooding harming humans and the larger environment. Does this mean we can somehow return the river to an original, untouched state? No. Prior to European settlement American Indians utilized river mud and cane in the Mississippi River for damming purposes and prior to human settlement ecological events consistently changed its landscape (and continue to do so). The point is not to focus on a return to a pristine condition but rather to raise awareness of the river as a diverse habitat as well as a water source and recreational area. The river is more than an interstate system, and continuing to regard it that way will have serious human and environmental consequences.

Mississippi is not a battleground state. This state will, without a doubt, vote Republican, no matter what Democrats or Republicans do. But I’m not telling you anything you didn’t know. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t vote though. Voter apathy is not something of which to be proud, and we should really consider it embarrassing. According to the International Business Times, voter turnout for presidential elections in the United States between 1960 and 2008 has ranged from 49 to 63 percent. That is ridiculously low when compared to other nations such as Germany, Australia, Italy and the United Kingdom. Their voting rates range between 75 and 95 percent, so they can decidedly say that

most of their citizens have participated in their country’s dialogue. We can barely say that. As young potential voters, we should aim to follow this model. We, as Americans, consider ourselves the leaders of the Western world and champions of democracy, so we should act like it. I don’t mean vote blindly, but educate yourselves so that you can be proud of participating in and contributing to the national conversation. We are given very few opportunities to offer our opinions; nobody generally cares what people our age think. Let’s change that. Don’t let politicians make all of the decisions that will affect our future. Take some of that power from them and show them that they should be scared as hell of people our age.

Education students amazed by Belize experience Ole Miss students traveled to Belize over Spring Break this past March to work with teachers and students at Holy Cross Anglican School. BY HANNA JALAWAN

While most college students use their coveted week of Spring Break to soak up the sun, a group of Ole Miss students took the opportunity to travel to Belize, an impoverished Central American country. This faculty-led trip was for both undergraduate and graduate students in The University of Mississippi’s Teacher Education Program. Deborah Chessin, professor of curriculum and instruction and coordinator of service learning and study abroad, was one of the faculty members who led the trip. The students stayed on the island of San Pedro and worked with teachers in the elementary school of Holy Cross Anglican School.

“My students were placed in a different classroom based on their interests and worked with the teacher in that classroom every day, Monday through Friday; they helped them with their lesson plans, taught small groups and taught some special lessons themselves,” Chessin said. Because poverty is prevalent in the country, the students came to realize that many of the supplies, accommodations and opportunities that are available to them at Ole Miss are an inconceivable dream to the staff and students in Belize. “They don’t have running water, electricity or sewage facilities,” Chessin said. “It’s a very high poverty situation. The teachers there do not have the training that the teachers here have, a lot of them don’t have a college education, and

most of them go to a two-year college.” The school relies heavily on donations and must work with the little it receives. “There are very few funds for materials, and there is no technology,” Chessin said. “The schools here have great relationships with the community, but they are very dependent on international help.”

One grade level may receive many math textbooks but no science textbooks. Another grade level may not be so lucky. “The teachers are creative; they have to be,” Chessin said. Four of Chessin’s graduate students were so touched by the experience and grew so fond of the children that they decided to teach at a neighboring school next year.

Chessin said she is not surprised by her students’ attachment to the children. “It’s hard not to fall in love with them,” she said. The faculty did not walk into the classrooms with the students to give them the opportunity to have a professional experience with another teacher and develop their own relationships with the kids. “I would say that my students — all of them — experienced a broadening in their perspective, and that’s really what I wanted them to understand,” Chessin said. “In a classroom, there are going to be so many different kinds of kids. Teaching is difficult because you have to reach each one of those kids, and so the more experiences they can have in diverse situations and diverse cultures, (the more it) helps them when they come back here and teach.” Laura Young, a graduate student with a major in elementary education, shared her Belize experience. “They want to go to school,” Young said. “It’s a privilege to be able to go to school. They think it’s the most awesome thing.” While many students in America dread the thought of an 8 a.m. class, cringe at term papers and fear the horror of finals, the students in Belize embrace school and the rare opportunity to receive an education. “It just really opened my eyes to how important it is to help other people but to do it in a way that you’re not insulting them,” Young said. “The whole thing to me was to help them see how important school is and how important learning is, and it’ll take you far. “It was amazing; I want to go back.”



HOMECOMING, continued from page 1 Although Pearson is nervous about her Homecoming, she hopes to both make history and make her family proud. “I am a little nervous,” Pearson said. “Making my parents proud, to see their faces — I’m sure my mom will still be crying — because she hasn’t stopped yet.” “The parade, the game, being out in the Grove, being surrounded by thousands of people who love you — that’s something to be excited about,” Pearson said. “I hope people are as excited as I am.”

As stated in the initiative, several events will take place this week to honor the LGBT community. “There will be a reception in the Union Ballroom on Thursday at 5:30 p.m., and I encourage all members of the Ole Miss family to attend,” Dandridge said. Dandridge has not heard any negative remarks about her decision, and she said she trusts that the Ole Miss student body is “very welcoming and open to new ideas.” “I know there are a few silent people that may question my decision, but I did what I know is right and I made a decision to help better our university,” she said. She also said students are entitled to their own opinion if they disagree, and she is open to listening to them. “But I also believe that everyone is entitled to respect, and here at Ole Miss, the LGBT community and all minority communities will be respected,” she said.

CHANCELLOR, continued from page 1 want this to be a good and strong place.” Management senior Kishan Gopal, who walked and talked with Jones for a good 10 minutes, said it was a great personal connection and that it was important for the student body to feel in touch with its chancellor. “He is listening to not, say, our problems or issues, but just what we have to say,” Gopal said. “I feel like that’s what makes us a bigger family, is that we feel closer to all hierarchy of the university.” Gopal said that during his walk with Jones, progression was the main topic, along with affirmative action. “He just wanted to see everyone’s view on that,” he

affirmative action and (with helping) the university and society as a whole keep pro-

on how impressed guest speakers are with the students when they come on campus. In particular, he discussed a “gracious” letter he received from Harry Belafonte after his visit to Ole Miss. “What he talked about was the people,” he said. “How much he enjoyed interacting with everyone, primarily the students.” With it being Homecoming Week, Jones encouraged students to seek out relationships with alumni because they will help in the future with career advice and possible jobs. “The thing that has impressed me so much about the Ole Miss experience is how important relationships are in a sustained way,” he said. “Homecoming Week is a great way to build relationships.”

Hilton makes early impact with his speed It took a few games, but freshman Mike Hilton is stepping up on the Ole Miss defense, as he got his first start last weekend. Hilton is one of many young guys making an impact for the Rebels this season.

PHOTOS BY THOMAS GRANING | The Daily Mississippian

Defensive back Mike Hilton (28)


Already extremely young on the defensive side of the football, Ole Miss added another true freshman to the mix when the Ole Miss defense took the field for the first time against Texas A&M. Defensive back Mike Hilton made the first start of his young career at the huskie position and received his first extensive playing time as well. Hilton made the most of his opportunity, recording three tackles and two sacks while being tasked with keeping an eye on Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel. Hilton thinks his play Saturday will help keep him on the field going forward. “They put me out there for a reason,” he said. “I just made the best of my chance and made a couple plays. Got a couple down plays, but that’s part of the game.” The key now is to put those down plays behind him and learn from them instead of letting them linger going forward. “It’s going to take time, but as a (defensive back), you’ve got to have a short memory because you can’t let one play go into the next game and affect your play,” Hilton said. “You’ve just got to let it go. Games go up and down, you make plays, get beat. You’ve got to let it go and play the next game.” Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze knows there will be up-and-down play from the freshmen on the team, but

overall he was pleased with how the Sandy Creek, Ga., native played in his first college start. “He played really well for a true freshman being thrown in his first significant snaps of a game like that,” he said “He made some key plays and got beat a few times. That’s kind of who we are right now with the young kids. That’s going to happen at times.” Hilton and the Rebels are now tasked with moving on from the 30-27 loss to Texas A&M and getting that elusive Southeastern Conference win to end a 16-game conference losing streak.

Like other Ole Miss players have similarly voiced this week, Hilton is tired of being congratulated on being competitive. “Yeah, we get tired of everyone coming up to us and saying, ‘You played a good game, good job,’” he said. “We want everyone to respect us in the SEC and to let them know that we’re coming.” As Hilton continues to gain experience, he knows that there will be bumps in the road that come with playing in the SEC. Knowing that, the fact that Freeze is willing to put his confidence in a large group

of freshman defenders isn’t lost on Hilton. “It really helps because we’re young,” Hilton said. “We’re still adapting to the game, but having our head coach saying he’s real confident with a freshman coming in and playing, that just makes us feel a little better.” What helps Hilton is that he possesses something that the Rebels are badly looking to add in future recruiting classes: speed. A former high

school running back, Hilton has impressed Freeze with his quickness on the field. “I’m very confident in Mike,” Freeze said. “I think he’s going to be a really good player. He’s a tough kid — hard-nosed and can run. You need as many of those as you can find.” For continuing coverage of Ole Miss football, follow @thedm_ sports and @bennetthipp on Twitter.

FOOTBALL, continued from page 12 “We always want a big turnover game,” Wommack said. “That is a big thing to us. We feel like we need to win the turnover margin. It is one of our goals each and every week. We’ve got to be able to produce turnovers, and you have to be able to do that to be successful. Rebels rally behind Wallace Sophomore quarterback Bo Wallace practiced today after receiving news that his younger sister, Baylee, was involved in a car accident on Monday night. Head coach Hugh Freeze said the team rallied behind Wallace in practice on Tuesday. “He was a little distant at the start, but I thought he settled in and got better,” Freeze said. “She had a car accident, and it broke her neck, but she does have movement in all her extremities. I don’t understand

it all, but the doctors are very optimistic she could have a full recovery.” Freeze used this as a teaching moment for his team. “Before practice we had a good team meeting,” Freeze

said. “Life is tough. We’ve had several of those things here in the last few weeks. We had a good time before, and Bo was a part of that. Part of what I believe is a good team is that you’re walking along life to-

gether, and we try to stress that to them.” Neat returns from injury Junior wide receiver Korvic Neat returned to practice Tuesday afternoon after missing

three games with a groin injury. During the first three games of the season, Neat was a crucial playmaker for the Rebels with 14 catches for 151 yards. “I’m pretty excited,” Neat said. “I got tired of sitting out for three weeks watching the guys. I’m pretty excited to be back. I’m a little rusty. I’m trying to gel my talents back into the system a little bit and still work on my groin.” Neat was forced to get treatment quite often on his groin to return to the field, and he is excited to get back into the offense after seeing sophomore wide receiver Vince Sanders and junior wide receiver JaMes Logan have big games the past two weeks. “It was pretty frustrating,” Neat said of being forced to sit out. “I feel like when I get into my groove there is always something that happens, but I’m just happy to be back.” For continuing coverage of Ole Miss football, follow @thedm_ sports and @SigNewton_2 on Twitter.

After facing an effective scrambling quarterback this past weekend in freshman Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M, the Ole Miss defense will once again have to prepare for the unexpected when the Rebels (3-3, 0-2 SEC) take on Auburn (1-4, 0-3 SEC) on Saturday. Auburn has had its share of struggles on the offensive side of the ball this season, but Ole Miss defensive coordinator Dave Wommack said some times it looks like the Tigers are running five or six different offenses. “They concern me because they’ve got some talented guys running the ball back there,” Wommack said. “The line is young, but I think they are getting better each week. They’ve just got to find a plan and stick to it.” The Auburn offense has yet to find a true identity this season and has struggled to put up many points on the board. The Tigers are also running a two-quarterback system with sophomore Kiehl Frazier and junior Clint Moseley. “It seems to me like when (Frazier) is in the game, they were running more of the stuff like we run, with a stutter package read and all that,” Wommack said. “When the other quarterback was in, it wasn’t as much about that; it was more about the power, stretch game. Other than that, the pass game is the same.” Wommack also stressed the importance of winning the turnover margin. The Ole Miss defense is coming off a game in which they forced six turnovers against Texas A&M. See FOOTBALL, PAGE 11
