Persa back in saddle after concussion Fitzgerald: Persa expected to play against Penn State Northwestern received good news Monday when junior quarterback Dan Persa informed trainers he was symptomfree after sustaining a concussion in Saturday’s win over Indiana. Persa took the day off Sunday, worked out Monday and, barring any setbacks, will participate in practice this week, coach Pat Fitzgerald said, adding he “fully expects” Persa to play against Penn State on Saturday. The quarterback suffered the injury midway through the fourth quarter of Saturday’s game, when he was hit by Indiana safety Mitchell Evans and middle linebacker Jeff Thomas after scrambling out of the pocket. Persa talked with NU trainers on the field for several minutes before leaving the game. Persa said he was a little bit woozy after being hit in the back of the head but added he is “good” now. “Right away, I was kind of fuzzy,” Persa said Monday, explaining why he didn’t reenter Saturday’s game. “When I was able to come back, the game was already over. They didn’t want to risk anything, which I thought was smart. You don’t want to mess with anything like that.” If Persa is for some reason unable to play, redshirt freshman Evan Watkins would fill his spot. Watkins went 1-for-2 on Saturday, completing a critical third-down play for 13 yards. Fitzgerald could also use freshman quarterbacks Kain Colter and Trevor Siemian but said he would prefer to keep their redshirts for this season. Fitzgerald, who sustained a couple of concussions himself as a player, explained that NU will be very careful with Persa. “Every concussion is a little unique and different, and you’re always going to err on the side of caution,” Fitzgerald said. “He has to be 24 hours symptomfree, and that allows him the opportunity to exercise, and then he’ll go take his impact test, and then he’ll go through practice three or four days after being symptom-free.” — Jonah L. Rosenblum

Professor’s memorial set for Wed. By Sammy Caiola the daily northwestern Weinberg will hold a memorial service Wednesday for a beloved 37-yearold mathematics professor who died in September. Prof. Angela Grant, a college adviser in the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences and Ralph Boas Assistant Professor of Mathematics, died Sept. 20 of breast cancer. She will be remembered for her love of sports, baking, pottery and life, students and colleagues said. “There’s a real energy that is gone,” Weinberg College Adviser Hilarie Lieb said. “We all really need this (memorial) service. This can give us some closure.” The service will be held in the Alice Millar Chapel Wednesday at 7 p.m. and followed by a reception in Parkes Hall. The service will feature speakers from the math department, fellow advisers, former students and family members. Grant joined the Weinberg faculty in 2005 after earning her Ph.D. at the University of Maryland where she researched chaotic dynamical systems, a branch of mathematics. In 2008, she became a Weinberg college adviser. Prof. Sheila Donohue, a fellow college

adviser, described Grant as warm and enthusiastic. “I saw her just about every day,” Donohue said. “She was good friends with just about everyone in the office. She was extremely joyful and happy to be involved with her colleagues and students.” Of the many classes Grant taught at NU, a popular freshman seminar received rave reviews, said Maria Stadnik, a graduate student in mathematics.

and brought her enthusiasm into the classroom,” mathematics Prof. Martina Bode said. “Her students adored her, so they took the challenge and rose to her standards.” Grant served as a college adviser for 270 students in Weinberg. Her co-worker Lieb said although the job pool the year she was hired was competitive, the vote for Grant was unanimous. Since Grant’s death, “the office feels empty,” Lieb said. In addition to her faculty and administrative roles, Grant was involved with See Grant, page 8
The days of trekking to the library in the harsh Chicago wind to access books from University Library, only to find they are checked out, may be over for good. The University Library and the other members of the Committee on Institutional Cooperation, which includes all of the Big Ten schools and the University of Chicago, have partnered with Google for a large-scale book digitization process through which millions of books will be transformed into digital copies any Northwestern student or faculty member can access 24/7 from anywhere in the world. CIC schools signed on to digitize their libraries in June 2007, but the process is just getting underway this fall. More than 40 other national, state, municipal, public and university libraries around the world also signed similar contracts with Google to digitize their collections. “Given the fact that Google is able to conduct this work on such a large scale, they are able to digitize so many more volumes than we could ever do on our own or with other universities,” said Scott Devine, head of University Library preservation. Important and distinct collections within University Library such as the Africana, Music and Transportation collections will be digitized along with See Books, page 7
Vandalism of Chabad House leads to forum Forum will address anti-Semitism, racism and diversity By Katie Park the daily northwestern The Tuesday open forum sparked by recent vandalism outside the Tannenbaum Chabad House will address the topics of anti-Semitism, racism and diversity, Chabad director Rabbi Dov Hillel Klein said Monday afternoon. The forum will take place at 8:30 p.m. in the Technological Institute, room L211. It was scheduled after the 6-foot menorah outside the Chabad House was mangled Saturday night. “I hope a lot of people come, share
their thoughts and feelings, and that people can walk away feeling like they’ve accomplished something,” Klein said. The rabbi said the forum would be a “conversation” among the Northwestern community. He said he expects Dean of Students Burgwell Howard to attend, and several campus ministers and members of the chaplain’s office have been invited. “You are invited to an open forum to show solidarity with the Jewish community,” read an e-mail sent over the Chabad e-mail list Monday afternoon. “The forum will provide an opportunity for members of the Northwestern community to share your thoughts and comments regarding this incident.” Although police, who could not be reached for comment Monday, classified See chabad, page 8

From the Wires Hundreds attend Notre Dame studentâ€™s funeral
Hundreds celebrated the life of Declan Drumm Sullivan Monday, five days after the 20-year-old died while videotaping a Notre Dame University football practice. Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly and two busloads of college students attended the funeral at St. Mary Church in Buffalo Grove, where Sullivan had gone to school as a child. He graduated from Carmel High School in Mundelein, Ill., which also sent a bus filled with students to the standing-room-only service. Sullivan, of Long Grove, Ill., was in an aerial scissor lift recording video footage of a football practice during a strong wind advisory when the lift toppled onto the street. Indianaâ€™s Occupational Safety and Health Administration said the death has been classified as a workplace fatality. Investigators will look into whether the lift was being operated safely, including whether it should have been used in 33-mph winds with gusts of 51 mph, officials have said. Sullivan, a junior with a double major in marketing and film, enjoyed writing music reviews for Notre Dameâ€™s student newspaper.
Big Ten may need extra time for new logo, division names
Commissioner Jim Delany wants the names of the Big Tenâ€™s new divisions to â€œconjure up the right feelings in people â€” a positive, emotional response.â€? Delany set an original goal of Dec. 1 to unveil the names, plus a new logo that will reflect the 12-team Big Ten. But last week he said he might need an extra 60 days. â€” Chicago Tribune
Android software skyrockets to top of smartphone market By Troy Wolverton San Jose Mercury News SAN JOSE, Calif. â€” Googleâ€™s Android software continued its rocket-like ascent over the summer, ending the third quarter with the dominant market share in the United States among smartphone operating systems and a solid No. 2 spot globally. Manufacturers installed Android on 9.1 million smart phones shipped in the United States between July 1 and Sept. 30, according to Canalys, a technology research firm, in a report released Monday. That gave the software 43.6 percent of the smart-phone market during the period, up from 34 percent in the second quarter of this year and just 5.4 percent in the third quarter last year. Worldwide, manufacturers shipped 20.3 million Android phones in the third quarter. That was up a whopping 1,297 percent from the same period last year and gave Android 25.1 percent of the global market. That put it second to Symbian, sponsored by Nokia and predominantly found on its phones, which had 37 percent of the market. Android market share grew at the expense of Symbianâ€™s â€” and that of every other major smart-phone operating systems, according to Canalysâ€™ data. Itâ€™s difficult to see anything slowing Androidâ€™s momentum in the near term, said Chris Jones, a Canalys analyst. More carriers and manufacturers around the world are adopting the software, and itâ€™s starting to show up in budget-priced phones. â€œItâ€™s easy to see how that accelerates the rise of Android,â€? Jones said. Canalysâ€™ research echoes that of NPD Group, which was also released Monday. According to NPD, whose data estimates the numbers of phones sold to consumers rather than the number shipped to retailers, Android was installed on 44
percent of the smart phones sold in the United States in the third quarter, up from 33 percent in the second quarter. NPD attributed Androidâ€™s rise in part to strong sales of a growing number of high-end phones, such as the Motorola Droid X. And much of the softwareâ€™s market share gains have come out of the share formerly held by Research In Motionâ€™s BlackBerry operating system, the report noted. BlackBerryâ€™s share of the market fell from 28 percent in the second quarter to 22 percent in the most recent period. Although Apple sold 91 percent more iPhones in the third quarter than it did in the year ago period, it merely held its own in the two market share reports, thanks to the rapid growth of Android phone sales. According to Canalys, Appleâ€™s iOS, which among smart phones is exclusive to the iPhone, captured 26.2 percent of the U.S. smart-phone market in the third quarter. That was up from 21.7 percent in the second quarter, but down from 28.2 percent in the same period a year earlier. Worldwide, iOS had 17.4 percent of the market. That was up from the second quarter, when iOS held 13.5 percent, but down from the yearago period, when it held 17.8 percent. Apple did, however, have something to crow about. Among smart phones shipped in United States in the third quarter, the iPhone 4 ranked no. 1, with 26 percent of the market, according to Canalys. NPD also ranked the iPhone as the top selling smart phone in the period. NPD said Apple did well, considering that the iPhone is only available through AT&T in the United States. Recent reports indicate that the device will soon be available on Verizon, which is the most popular network in the United States. If so, that could shake up the market, both for the iPhone and for Android, said Jones. â€œThat will be an interesting dynamic to see playing out,â€? he said.

Sewer construction causes some trouble for businesses By Miranda Viglietti the daily northwestern Customers of the Jamba Juice on Davis Street, who are used to hopping out of the car and grabbing a quick smoothie, are having a harder time finding prime parking spots, Jamba Juice employee Shannon Sullivan said. A sewer rehabilitation construction project on Davis Street and Orrington Avenue has temporarily reduced the amount of street parking in front of the store, at 630 Davis St., but for the most part, business has been the same as usual, Sullivan said. â€œI donâ€™t think it has really affected us that bad,â€? Sullivan said. Traffic patterns changed on several blocks of downtown Evanston last week as the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago began a sewer rehabilitation project, leading to closed lanes near the intersection of Orrington and Davis. Evanston businesses have submitted few complaints about construction to city officials as they deal with inconveniences such as closed road lanes, fewer street parking spaces and basements smelling of sewage. The city has tried to relieve pressure on street parking by reducing the fee for parking on the top level of the Sherman Plaza Self Park, said Marty Lyons, interim community and economic development director. The city offered an incentive for Evanston

employees to park on the upper deck of the Sherman Plaza Self Park by reducing the monthly parking rate from $85 to $50, Evanston Parking Manager Rickey Voss said. â€œNo one ever parked there,â€? Voss said. â€œNow itâ€™s loaded â€” all 200 spaces are filled.â€? While the city wonâ€™t know until the end of the month if more people have used the cityâ€™s parking garages during the sewer rehabilitation project, the increased use of the Sherman Plaza Self Park may have helped matters by alleviating demand on meter parking, Voss said. Even though traffic whittles down to one lane in front of 57th Street Bookcase and Cabinet, 604 Davis St., it has posed minimal problems for customers, owner Noy Devenport said. â€œThereâ€™s plenty of parking on other streets,â€? Devenport said. â€œIt doesnâ€™t affect foot traffic or anything.â€? Construction has posed more of an issue for Vincent and Company Hair Designs, 1626 Orrington Ave., owner Sheri Muciaccia said. The quiet block the store sits on has gotten noisier and busier due to the sewer rehabilitation project and building construction across the street, Muciaccia said. Customers have found it difficult to park near the store due to construction and sometimes come in late to their appointments because they did not allow for extra time, she said. â€œIt definitely affects business, but most people are aware of it,â€? Muciaccia said. The store also dealt with sewer problems last
Friday when sewage backed up into the storeâ€™s basement, Muciaccia said. The problem was quickly fixed, she said. Jamba Juiceâ€™s basement also smelled like sewage, Sullivan said. However, city officials were not aware of the sewer backups, said David Stoneback, the cityâ€™s water and sewer superintendent. The sewer rehabilitation project is part of an effort to reinforce brick sewer lines from the 1920s without causing a major disruption to downtown

Vote: Because it can always make a difference
An open letter to Congressional Democrats
ast week The Daily Northwestern published a guest column by a Medill freshman apparently frustrated with the pace of progressive change over the last few years of Democratic leadership. He aired a litany of grievances from the left, ranging from the war in Afghanistan to the Deepwater Horizon spill. He concluded that the only way dissatisfied liberals could achieve the change they want is by staying home today, Election Day, in silent protest. I get it: sitting on the sidelines can be tempting, especially when times are tough. The frustration with the slow pace of Washington expressed in last week’s column is nothing new to American politics. In fact, politicians in this country have known and exploited this frustration for years. They have been winning votes for decades by earnestly preaching to the choir that Washington is broken. But while our system may be flawed, we’ve been accomplishing significant, if incremental, progress since its inception. Last week’s guest columnist cited Malcolm X’s famous 1964 speech, “The Ballot or the Bullet,” in which he called on his followers to “keep your ballot in your pocket.” Malcolm X delivered that address in an era when racial upheaval, poverty and international tension were boiling over. It was also a time when Democrats controlled two-thirds of both houses of Congress. He was understandably livid about the legislative gamesmanship holding back civil rights legislation in the Senate and told his supporters to repudiate the broken system. But just two months after “The Ballot or the Bullet” address, northern Democrats and liberal Republicans dramatically defeated the Senate filibuster and sent the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to President Johnson’s desk. In other words, the political makeup of the Senate and the results of the 1962 midterm elections mattered. The president’s signature on that bill ensured following generations rights that they had been unjustly denied since the founding of this country. Our political system absorbed the explosive civil rights battle, taking it out of the streets and the schools and enshrining racial equality under the law as one of the government’s fundamental commitments to its people. The ballot overcame the bullet. This election cycle is a far cry from 2008: Dems are not exactly chomping at the bit just to wait in line to exercise their right to vote. I empathize. But this country cannot afford to have smart, reasonable, politically savvy Americans giving up on their federal government before they’re even old enough to exercise that right. As soon as you take your hands off the wheel, you can be certain that someone else will reach in to steer you somewhere you don’t want to go. If every young progressive makes a habit out of keeping that ballot in his or her pocket, those who would exploit our system for personal fame and fortune or something more sinister will be unfettered. The incremental progress we’ve seen over generations will screech to a halt. In this representative democracy, the only voice we as citizens have in our government is ultimately channeled through the people we elect. Today — Election Day — is the day to make that voice heard. So if you’re registered in Illinois, home to this cycle’s most hotly contested Senate race, vote. If you’re registered in Montana, where there is no Gubernatorial race, no Senate race, and no competitive House race, vote. If you’re a first generation American or your ancestors came over on the Mayflower, if you’re black or white, a disaffected liberal or a fired up conservative, vote. It is, always has been and always will be, too important to do otherwise.
Dear Congressional Democrats, As you’re already aware, you’re about to get clobbered in today’s elections. You’re likely to lose the House and may, if you’re lucky, hold on to the Senate by the slimmest of margins. While I’m far from your biggest fan, I tend to agree with your positions more than with Republican stances, and I hope to see you become the energized, intellectually vibrant party that political discourse in this country sorely needs. Perhaps in examining how you got into this mess in the first place, we can devise some strategies for how to best move forward. First off, you’ve had a couple of strikes against you that aren’t entirely your fault. As some might say, “It’s the economy, stupid,” and on that front you’re hurting. Unemployment is dragging along at 9.6 percent, and third-quarter growth of two percent won’t even begin to make a dent in that number. While your ability to affect market forces is minimal, none of these economic conditions inspires voters’ confidence in your governing abilities. America’s military performance abroad is similarly underwhelming, another knock against you that you can’t entirely change. But I think what really ails you is entirely within your control. It goes beyond any particular policy or law and has everything to do with psychology. You’re about to lose these elections because you’re spineless. Yes, Obama inherited many messes from his predecessor, but you’ve shown little-to-no passion in attempting to tackle those problems. Even when you do manage to get something mildly constructive done, like passing landmark health care legislation, you promptly run away from your accomplishments. For instance, you’ve apparently decided that health care can only be used advantageously by Republicans. We all know that the law was far from perfect,

but I’ve heard no full-throated defenses of its more popular provisions, like its allowance for young adults to stay on their parents’ insurance until age 26 or its mandate that insurance companies can no longer deny coverage to those with pre-existing conditions. Republican vows to repeal this legislation imply opposition to provisions like these which benefit a great number of Americans. Yet I’ve heard few Democrats championing the law in the campaign. Democrats, since when do you cede entire issues to the opposition? Have you completely lost any and all conviction in your accomplishments simply because your political opponents have adeptly twisted them to their advantage? You may attribute your leadership deficiencies to your belligerent and completely uncooperative opposition party. This is partly true, but only partly. Apparently You’re Republican threats to filibuster a vote are about to lose enough to derail any bill, and you won’t these elections even bring to a vote because you’re anything for which you lack at least a spineless. 60-person majority. Aside from this complete abuse of the filibuster solely for obstruction, why not force Republicans to make good on their threats? Strom Thurmond’s 24-hour-plus filibuster of the Civil Rights Act in 1964 didn’t stop the Senate from passing that historic legislation. Why do you let even the mere possibility of a filibuster cripple any legislative priority? Bowing to that threat tells Americans you’re really not all that passionate about your agenda. Now, I’m not saying that, as you transition to a minority in the House and potentially a slim majority in the Senate, you should do what Republicans did after 2008 and become unequivocally hostile and uncooperative. Remaining passionate about your principles and priorities doesn’t mean you should never work or compromise with Republicans. But don’t let their adept political maneuvering push you away from your ideals. It all comes down to Wedding Crashers’ Rule 76: No excuses, play like a champion. Grow a spine. Show us that you care about your principles.

The Drawing Board
By Austin Perry
Daily’s Giannoulias endorsement superficial, unsubstantiated
The Daily’s editorial board and Senate hopeful Alexi Giannoulias share at least one thing: a refusal to engage in substantive policy debate. In endorsing Giannoulias, the Democrat running to represent Illinois in the U.S. Senate, The Daily relied on simplistic, hyper-partisan and misleading arguments. The Daily acknowledged that Republican Senate hopeful Mark Kirk, currently a congressman representing the North Shore’s Tenth District, is a moderate with a “real dedication to public service.” But Northwestern students shouldn’t vote for him anyway, The Daily said, because he has an “R” after his name and might vote with Republicans sometimes (and doing so is never in the interests of the monolithically liberal Northwestern community, they suggested). Except that Kirk is far from a toe-the-line Republican. He consistently ranks among the top most centrist members of Congress, according to non-partisan publications like Congressional Quarterly. And his district, which overwhelmingly supported Obama, re-elected him five times because Mark Kirk doesn’t answer to the Republican Party. Kirk answered to the Tenth District — that explains his controversial vote for cap-and-trade — and Kirk will answer to the people of Illinois. The Daily, like Giannoulias, also conveniently ignored the question of experience. As the Chicago Tribune put it in their ringing endorsement, Kirk’s years as a naval officer and his time in Congress prove that he is “what he says he is: a social moderate, fiscal conservative and national security hawk.” Alexi Giannoulias, on the other hand, has managed to lose a lot of money for the people of Illinois as a grossly incompetent state treasurer with questionable ties to crooks. Giannoulias and The Daily both gloss over those uncomfortable facts in their quest to paint Kirk as just another cog in the Republican machine. Such reasoning is hackish, unsubstantiated and dishonest. Here’s hoping the people of Illinois — and the students of Northwestern — look to records and reputation, rather than tired political partisanship. —Katie Glueck Medill Junior Volunteer for the Illinois Republican Party Former Daily writer
NU’s handling of gender-open housing has been an embarrassment I am a transgender alum and former president of Gender Protection Initiative. Although I identify and present as a man, I was assigned to live in a female suite because of my transgender status. Although I loved my dorm (Slivka) and lived in a single, going home every day to a female suite was so awkward and humiliating that I moved off-campus. When William Banis said that special housing accommodation requests for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students were “handled” (A program ‘doomed to fail’, 10/13/2010) he neglected that they were handled with such great dissatisfaction that the affected students formed a student group in order to change the situation. The Daily is right that the administration acted too hastily and without sufficient care after accepting GPI’s proposal for gender-open housing (‘Administrative stumbles cause troubled first year for gender-neutral housing’, 10/14/2010). However, it is also important to note that the Food and Housing Administration were not at all quick at making their decision after GPI presented our proposal. The administration’s poor handling of the gender-open housing pilot is an embarrassment to the university. It is sickening that I feel more accepted now that I live in Michigan, the state whose assistant attorney general has stalked a gay student without getting fired, than I did at Northwestern. —Mykell Shih Miller McCormick‘10; Graduate School ‘10 Former president of Gender Protection Initiative

First volumes available by end of year From BOOKS, page 1
selections from the Galter Health Sciences Library, the Pritzker Legal Research Center, the Mudd Science and Engineering Library, the Boas Mathematics Library, the Schaffner Library and more. “Students will benefit most from this by being able to access a lot of books,” said Clare Roccaforte, director of public relations for the library. “You already have access to a lot of databases, and this will make lots of print books available online as well.” The University sent its first shipment of library books to Google in October. It will take about a month to have the books scanned and returned, meaning the first group of volumes should be
available online before the end of the calendar year, Devine said. “I can see why this is a worthwhile project,” said Weinberg junior Laura Markee, who works at the library circulation desk. “This opens up a lot of our valuable research materials to people that can’t get to Northwestern.” Although the digitization process certainly makes materials more widely accessible, sometimes hard copies are preferable, said Weinberg junior Hannah Smith, another circulation desk attendant, who added she gets tired of looking at a screen all day. Roccaforte did not disclose an exact cost for the project but said Google is handling the transportation and digitization costs of the books. The library has received a generous donation from the Office of the Provost to help cover the remaining technical costs. “Now when students go into the library catalog and search for a title, they will see the original paper copy and a link to the digital copy,” Devine said. “We are going to be able to provide access to literally millions of volumes online that we wouldn’t have been able to otherwise.” email@example.com

TI celebrates 30th anniversary with special, side projects By Samantha Caiola the daily northwestern
The Theatre and Interpretation Center is celebrating its 30th birthday this year with some unprecedented special additions. TI has added several side projects for both undergraduate and graduate students. The offerings include a series of productions at the Steppenwolf theater, a production of “Peter Pan” at the Lookingglass theaterand “The Regina Taylor Project” at the Barber Theatre in TI. The Lookingglass reserved three of its ensemble spots for undergraduate students who were in Northwestern’s production of “Peter Pan” during the 2008-09 season. Communication junior Royer Bockus was one of the three selected. The show counts as an internship, for which she will earn two academic credits this quarter. “It’s an incredible experience for a young actress to actually go downtown and try it
and be with all these seasoned actors,” Bockus said. Noteworthy guest directors have also been brought in to take charge of “Tartuffe,” “Spinning Into Butter” and “The Regina Taylor Project,” three of the eight main-stage shows TI is producing for the 2010-11 season. Henry Godinez, TI’s artistic director, said the center has always brought in outside help, but this is the first time there have been three opportunities in the same year. “It’s a great thing for our (Master of Fine Arts) designers and our undergrad actors to work with outside directors,” Godinez said. “When they leave school, they have immediately made a contact in the field. Also, more professionals will come to see the productions.” With special guest speakers and a season of orthodox theatrical selections, the center has made the anniversary a focal point. Each year, the center mounts eight mainstage productions in the Barber and Louis

theatres , which are directed by faculty and third-year MFA directing students. This year’s shows include “Tartuffe,” “The Secret Garden” and “Brighton Beach Memoirs” among others, which Communication junior Sean Brennan said “have a lot of history.” “In the spirit of the anniversary, we’re doing established shows that everyone knows and loves,” Brennan said. “But we’re doing them in a really different way. We can acknowledge the past while keeping it fresh.” When TI opened in 1980, there were only three outlets for musical theater: the Dolphin Show, the Waa-Mu Show and the Gilbert and Sullivan Society, said Dominic Missimi, professor emeritus of the musical theatre program and former Waa-Mu director. Now, with a musical theatre certificate program, various related classes and more studentrun productions, NU offers an abundance of preprofessional opportunities.

College adviser supported women, minorities in math From Grant, page 1
the NU branch of the Association for Women in Mathematics, a national organization that encourages women to pursue careers in mathematics. The branch was established in 2004, and Grant expanded it by creating a mentor program for female undergraduates, pairing them with older students to discuss careers in mathematics. â€œShe was very dedicated to ensuring success
for everyone, including women and underrepresented minority,â€? said Prof. Christine Bell, a college adviser. â€œMath is not a place where you see as many females or scholars of color. She wanted to change that.â€? Grant, who was black, was also involved in Multicultural Student Affairs, Lieb said. Beyond her academic interests, Grant enjoyed making pottery, a hobby she continued while undergoing treatment, and gave pieces to nurses
and doctors, Bode said. Avid Cincinnati Bengals fans, Grant and Prof. Jaime Dominguez, also a college adviser, often looked forward to â€œMonday morning coffee and a lot of banter about sports.â€? Some of Grantâ€™s colleagues and students said very few people knew she was fighting cancer. â€œI was shocked,â€? said Catherine Kennedy, a Weinberg senior. â€œI never would have guessed. She was always warm and pleasant, and willing to
go out of her way to help me out.â€? Another student, Ruth Chen, called Grant â€œa friend.â€? â€œShe was very supportive and never tried to talk me out of the decisions I made,â€? the Weinberg senior said. â€œShe was more like a friend helping me with what I was trying to do rather than a higher up.â€? email@example.com

The unknown vandals pulled the light bulbs on the menorah from their sockets and broke one arm of the menorah, but they did not leave behind any explicitly anti-Semitic markings. Associated Student Government President Claire Lew said the incident was an issue of respect. She called the damage â€œextremely sad.â€? â€œOne would like to think this kind of act of vandalism is something most people view as disrespectful and unacceptable,â€? the SESP senior said. Although Lew has several other meetings scheduled for Tuesday night, she said she hopes to attend at least part of the forum. â€œI think the forum is an opportunity to have constant dialogue about mutual respect in the community and the impact this kind of act can have of the community,â€? Lew said. â€œI hope we support each other and make everyone in the Northwestern community feel welcome.â€? Kris Anne Bonifacio contributed reporting. firstname.lastname@example.org

corner. This all took place just two minutes after the Spartans had taken the lead. “It really breaks up the momentum we were gaining,” Armstrong said. “We had pulled the keeper with the aim to get a corner and eventually a goal, and we almost did that.” The game got off to a quick start as the Spartans jumped on the board seven minutes into the contest with a strike from midfielder Sabine van den Assem off a penalty corner. NU tried to respond, but Cassidy stopped a plethora of chances. “Their goalie played excellent today,” coach Tracey Fuchs said. “She played by far one of her best games this season.” Cassidy stopped all eight of the first-half shots she faced including a couple of key stick saves on Armstrong and a kick save on junior forward Regan Mooney. The second half started with a bang for the Cats as Armstrong tied it up a minute in, off a rebound in front of the goal. Twelve minutes later, the Cats took the lead off a goal from Mooney, who was left alone in front of the goal. The ball miraculously found Mooney’s stick, and she deked past Cassidy to put NU up 2-1.

following the goal, the momentum started to shift the Spartans’ way. After a couple of kick saves by sophomore goalie Amanda Wirth, Michigan State tied the game when Joelle van Ierland put home a loose ball off a penalty corner with 11 minutes remaining. The Spartans were not done, though, as Jantine Steinmetz got a breakaway with seven minutes to go and chipped the ball over Wirth’s shoulder into the top of the net to give Michigan State a 3-2 lead. Fuchs called timeout and pulled Wirth for an extra attacker, but the Cats were unable to muster up any opportunities aside from Armstrong’s disallowed shot. On Friday, NU died by the same sword they slayed Iowa with on Oct. 24 — penalty corners. Kelsey Amy scored four goals off penalty corners including three within a span of eight minutes to propel the Nittany Lions. Amy’s third goal came with five minutes to play in the first half. The Cats did salvage some momentum coming into the break when senior defender Zoe Almquist deflected an Armstrong pass into the goal with under a minute to play in that half. “The momentum really switched with that goal,” Fuchs said. “We just made small adjustments during halftime, putting (senior defender Sarah Marcincin) and Chelsea into the midfield.” NU continued with this momentum into the
second half as junior midfielder Kaylee Pohlmeyer slammed home a goal after Mooney deflected the ball toward her three minutes into the second half. With NU about to call a timeout and pull Wirth for the extra man, Amy struck again and put the Nittany Lions up 4-2 with seven minutes to play. However, the fight in the Cats did not stop as Armstrong found Pohlmeyer in front of the goal minutes
later, but she fanned on the shot. The Cats, seeded fifth for the upcoming Big Ten Tournament, hit the field on Thursday next for the opening-round game against the fourth-seeded Spartans. The tournament is being held at Lakeside Field this season, the first time since 2004.
little more help, but I thought our guys were in the right position, and you have to get the credit to our opponent. We had a great plan against Indiana. Our guys went out and executed it well.” Indiana came in with the sixth-best passing offense in the nation. To counter that, junior linebacker Bryce McNaul said the Cats ran several plays out of the dime package, with six defensive backs on the field. NU also put senior linebacker Quentin Davie on the line several times, where he was able to help the Cats put pressure on Chappell, notching three quarterback hurries. “They have a lot of talented guys, so we just knew coming in that we were going to be under the gun a little bit,” junior cornerback Jordan Mabin said. “So we try to step up a little bit and play our best game, and that’s what it’s going to take from here on out.”
The Hoosiers tried to put the Cats under the gun all game, attempting 54 passes, but NU responded well, limiting Chappell to just 30 completions, at a completion rate of 56 percent. And while Chappell threw for 308 yards, he averaged just 5.7 yards per attempt and also tossed an interception. As a result of Indiana’s heavy emphasis on the passing game, NU’s defensive backs and linebackers had a chance to rack up big numbers. McNaul notched a career-high 13 tackles while Mabin had a career-high 12 tackles and also broke up two passes. “I knew they were going to be passing it a lot,” Mabin said. “I knew I was going to have chances, one play or another, to get my hands on the ball, to be around the ball and make plays.” Among their defensive feats, the Cats gave up just six third-down conversions out of 16 attempts.
“They have a really good third-down package,” Indiana coach Bill Lynch said. “We knew it was going to be tough to get in those situations.” The only time the Cats’ defense really gave in was toward the end of the game, when Chappell completed two long passes and needed just five plays to drive his team 67 yards into the end zone. “It was horrible to see that happen,” Mabin said. “But at the end of the day, we came out with the win.” And although the Cats were impressive overall Saturday, Mabin believes NU’s defensive backfield can do even better. “I still believe we haven’t played a full game together as a defensive backfield,” Mabin said. “We’re making steps towards that, but we still haven’t.”

Quarter-by-quarter First: For the first time all season, Northwestern started out behind, as Mitch Ewald’s 23-yard field goal provided the only scoring of the first quarter. The first two drives by the Wildcats stalled after just three plays. The Cats ended the quarter with their best scoring opportunity up to that point with first-and-10 at Indiana’s 46-yard line.
Second: The Cats seized the lead on an 11-yard touchdown pass from junior quarterback Dan Persa to junior wide receiver Jeremy Ebert. That lead stood until the last minute of the half, when Indiana quarterback Ben Chappell led the Hoosiers on a 97-yard drive and ran it in from five yards out to take the lead. Stefan Demos’ 23-yard field goal as time expired sent the teams into the locker room tied at 10.
Third: NU took the lead again on an 11-play, 87-yard drive, that Persa capped off with a 30-yard pass to Ebert. Fourth: The Cats took a 10-point lead on a 45-yard field goal by Demos. Chappell threw his first touchdown pass of the game with 44 seconds remaining. NU recovered the onside kick and ran out the clock to win the game.

All-Big Ten Material: Ebert’s second touchdown catch came midway through the third quarter, as Persa lobbed it 30 yards over the middle to Ebert, who caught it in stride in the back of the end zone. Overall, Ebert accumulated five receptions for 98 yards. “All five of his catches were big plays in that game,“ coach Pat Fitzgerald said.

Improvised Bootleg: Junior wide receiver Jeremy Ebert solidifed his standing among the Big Ten’s best Saturday with two touchdown grabs. The first one came early in the second quarter, as junior quarterback Dan Persa scrambled left, then reversed direction, and threw a laser to Ebert, who caught it as he sprinted towards the right sideline.

NU loses 2 at home to PSU, MSU By Josh Walfish the daily northwestern
By Jonah L. Rosenblum the daily northwestern Heading into Saturday’s game, the prevailing wisdom in the football world was to expect a shootout between Northwestern and Indiana, in which the better quarterback between Dan Persa and Ben Chappell would walk away the winner. And while Persa was good, it was the Wildcats’ defense that won the game by keeping the Hoosiers’ powerful offense in check. “Both defenses played a heck of a game,” Indiana wide receiver Terrance Turner said. “We both came to play, and we were able to shut each other’s offenses down. What more can you say? The game was a defensive battle.” NU came out on top in that battle by holding the Hoosiers to just 17 points. Indiana entered the contest averaging 31.1 points per game. The Cats began by shutting down the Hoosiers’ running game, holding Indiana to just 65 rushing yards, NU’s best performance of the season. More importantly, NU was able to keep Chappell in check. He entered the game leading the Big Ten in passing yards per game but was unable to do much against NU, tossing just one touchdown against the Cats. This came just one week after the Cats surrendered three touchdown passes to Michigan

Even with their impassioned style of play over the weekend, Northwestern just couldn’t quite seal the deal against its highly touted competition. NU (11-8, 3-3 Big Ten) lost both of their weekend matchups with top-15 teams, falling to No. 9 Penn State (13-4, 4-2) 4-2 on Friday and No. 11 Michigan State (14-4, 3-3) 3-2 on Sunday. Sunday’s matchup with Michigan State, Senior Day for NU’s eight seniors, saw some late-game heartbreak for the Wildcats. They seemingly tied the game at 3-3 with about five minutes left when sophomore midfielder Chelsea Armstrong hit a rocket of a shot over goalie Molly Cassidy off a penalty corner and into the goal. However, after a brief conference between the officials, the goal was disallowed as they ruled that the ball went too high for an initial shot off a penalty See FIELD HOCKEY, page 9
NU drops two-goal lead, game to No. 25 Indiana Cats’ hopes for NCAA Tournament bid on life-support after latest loss By Katherine Driessen the daily northwestern After junior forward Oliver Kupe blazed past No. 25 Indiana’s defense to put Northwestern ahead 2-0 just 17 seconds into the second half on Sunday, the game changed. Just not in the definitive, NCAA bid-clinching direction the Wildcats had hoped. Rather than sealing NU’s (8-6-2, 2-2-1) win, Kupe’s goal roused a potent Indiana (9-5-2, 4-0-1) offense from its attacking slumber. More precisely, it awoke forward Will Bruin, whose two goals and an assist in the second half would give the Hoosiers the 3-2 win they needed to claim their The 14th Big Ten Big Ten regular season championship pendulum and seriously hamper NU’s has swung run at its fifththe other straight NCAA Tournament direction. appearance. Tim Lenahan, “ The guy who is probably Coach the best player in the league strapped his team on his back and brought them back into the game,” coach Tim Lenahan said. “It was tough to turn the tables after that.” NU has ample experience chasing a lead — it did so twice in its manic 4-3 overtime win at Wisconsin last Sunday. This time, though, NU was charged with sustaining rather than stealing the lead.

After watching No. 8 Butler trounce Indiana 4-1 on Wednesday, Lenahan said he knew the team needed to do more than just pack back and defend to secure a win. “The Big Ten pendulum has swung the other direction,” Lenahan said. “Whereas it used to be more defenseoriented, now it’s more attack-oriented. You don’t win many 1-0 games, so yeah, we didn’t really switch back into a defensive posture even after that second goal.” However, the pendulum still appeared in limbo during the first half. With plenty at stake for both teams, including first place in the Big Ten, both teams played fluidly, if a little conservatively, in the first 45 minutes. The Hoosiers were prepared for Kupe up top, forcing him out wide and patrolling his play in the middle. Senior forward Matt Eliason picked up the offensive slack by firing off four shots from his withdrawn attacking midfield position. But with time winding down in the first half, it was an Eliason assist that would make the difference. NU’s all-time leading goal scorer launched a long throw-in that ricocheted off senior defender Cody Stanley’s head in the middle of the goal box and fell to Connor Holloway at
the back post. The freshman’s header across the frame made up for what it lacked in power with precision, sending the ball past an outstretched Nate Mitchell to give NU the 1-0 edge heading into halftime. It marked Holloway’s first collegiate goal and earned Eliason another title: all-time leader in career points. “In the first half we were possessing really well,” freshman midfielder Layth Masri said. “We were really playing for each other.” Just moments into the second half, senior center back Jack Hillgard lofted a ball up to Kupe, whose speed and size proved too much to contain on the dribble. Kupe slotted it past Mitchell for his team-leading eighth goal of the season. “Jack told me he played the ball blindly because the sun was in his eyes,” Kupe said. “But he played it perfectly, splitting the defenders. I knew I was in after that.” But Kupe’s physicality was not an anomaly on the historic Bill Armstrong Stadium pitch. Bruin, a 6-foot-2 powerhouse of a forward who leads Indiana with 15 goals, would play the spoiler. Just seven minutes after Kupe’s goal, Bruin juggled a cross in the goal box and beamed it past sophomore Jonathan Harris, who replaced junior Drew Kotler and redshirt freshman Tommy Tombridge, both out due to concussions against Wisconsin on Oct. 23. Less than 10 minutes later, Bruin took a feed in the middle and, thanks to his dominating size, easily pushed aside his defender to fire off the tying goal. To cap off the evening, Bruin notched an assist on the final goal, a blistering shot from Joe Tolen from 20 yards out in the 79th minute. “We just needed to not be

complacent with the 2-0 win,” Masri said. “Mentally we may have just relaxed a tad too much, and then we gave up the lead because we weren’t locked into a play, and it changed the whole momentum of the game.” Despite the loss, Lenahan said he is still pleased with NU’s technical performance — one it will look to replicate against Michigan in its last
conference matchup of the regular season. “I’m disappointed in the result,” Lenahan said. “But in terms of the performance, we showed that we can play with the best and even beat them. We’re right there with the best teams.” firstname.lastname@example.org
