Chabad House

Rabbi admits alcohol was served at Chabad By CAT ZAKRZEWSKI

the daily northwestern

Students have been served wine and hard liquor at Tannenbaum Chabad House, Rabbi Dov Hillel Klein told The Daily just one day after he announced Northwestern’s disaffiliation with the organization. In an email sent Tuesday to NU’s Jewish community, Klein said that Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice president for student affairs, cut relationships with Chabad House because the organization “had not followed university policy on alcohol consumption.” University policy states, “Students are subject to Illinois law and University policy, which prohibit the possession and consumption of alcoholic beverages by any person under the age of 21 years,” according to the 2011-2012 Student Handbook.

DISAFFILIATED Rabbi Dov Hillel Klein said students have been served alcohol at Chabad House.

Klein maintains that he did not violate any laws, claiming Illinois state law allows people younger than 21 to accept and consume alcohol during religious ceremonies. He told The Daily alcohol was served during Shabbat dinners. “The service of alcohol at Chabad was associated with Jewish ritual and celebration,” Klein said. “It is part of the Jewish culture.” The handbook, however, makes no exception for religious events. Klein said Chabad House “respects university policy.” He said he was first notified the University would cut ties with Chabad House due to alcohol consumption on July 29. As of Aug. 1, he said alcohol had not been served at Chabad House, outside of very small amounts outside a ritual called the Kiddush ceremony. “We’re not about alcohol,” Klein said. “We’re about God. We’re about fellowship. We’re about faith, spirituality, joy and teaching.” Matthew Renick, a Weinberg senior who is president of the Chabad House student executive board, said Klein announced in August all campus Chabad Houses across the country are going dry at a national convention of Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity in Phoenix. “It’s just one piece of a larger puzzle that is Jewish life,” Renick said. “It certainly is not the foremost part.” Klein said the organization would continue to host programming at the house despite the disaffiliation, and that he expected students would continue to attend. However, Klein hopes Chabad House will regain campus status in the future and hopes to discuss that policy with the University. “It isn’t an ideal situation to » See CHABAD, page 11

DAY FOUR Authorities are widening their search for missing Northwestern student Harsha Maddula to Wilmette Harbor, which is on Lake Michigan, which is about two miles noth of from the McCormick sophomore’s dorm.

The Search for Harsha Maddula

Police look to Lake Michigan ‘My hopes are gone,’ says father of missing McCormick student By MARSHALL COHEN

daily senior staffer

The search for missing Northwestern student Harsha Maddula took a grim turn Wednesday. Investigators launched a massive

search effort in the morning at Wilmette Harbor after learning that the last signal sent by the McCormick sophomore’s phone was received at a nearby cell tower. Divers and sonar teams searched Lake Michigan and law enforcement personnel conducted an “extensive” search of the grounds in nearby Gillson Park. “Divers (are) in the water to search for our student’s body,” NU spokesman Al Cubbage said at a news conference near the lake. “Hopefully it’s not a body, but at this time it’s

unknown.” Cubbage called the new information about Maddula’s phone activity the biggest break in the case so far. The signal was only a “ping” and not an actual call, Cubbage said. The signal was received around 1 a.m. Saturday, roughly half an hour after friends say they last saw Harsha leaving a house party on Ridge Avenue. The house is almost two miles away from the harbor, and it » See MISSING, page 10

Prof’s son files suit against city after wrongful handcuffing 13-year-old alleges police wrongdoing in lawsuit against Evanston, officer By SUSAN DU

daily senior staffer

The 13-year-old son of a Northwestern professor filed a lawsuit Sunday against the

city of Evanston and an Evanston police officer following an incident last week when the policeman mistakenly handcuffed the boy as a burglary suspect. “This is not just for our son,” Medill Prof. Ava Greenwell wrote in an email to The Daily on Wednesday. “I’ve heard from several African American mothers in Evanston who told me of similar stories where their son was stopped and harassed for no legitimate reason. In addition, several black NU alums have contacted me saying they were stopped

and harassed by Evanston police decades ago. We want the city to take a really hard look at its police procedures and make sure they are equitable and ethical.” Evanston Police Department Officer Mark Buell detained Diwani Greenwell the morning of Sept. 20 as the teen was riding his bike near his house. EPD officials said he matched the description of a burglary suspect, which detailed a “black male wearing blue cargo shorts.” Greenwell said the boy was released after

about ten minutes when the witness exonerated him. Still, she said she felt certain EPD acted inappropriately by not communicating with her on the scene. Additionally, she said police surrounded her son with an excessive number of police officers, unnecessarily handcuffed him and failed to provide a sincere apology once he was cleared. Greenwell filed a formal complaint with EPD, citing these grievances as well as her » See LAWSUIT, page 9

A studio full of hot, sweaty yogis and a beagleblack lab mutt do not have much in common. Nevertheless, Down Dog Hot Yoga, 1508 Sherman Ave., is a yoga studio inspired by the owner’s love for his dogs. It opened Aug. 25. Neil Rosenbloom, owner and founder of Down Dog, said he and his business partners Steve and Ruth Ott all share a passion for man’s best friend. Once the studio turns a profit, they plan to donate 10 percent of earnings to animal shelters, Rosenbloom said. Although Rosenbloom said he had been thinking about starting a yoga studio for nearly five years, it was the death of Tyrone, his beagleblack lab, mix that motivated him to make his dream a reality. “I wanted to do something in his memory and for all other animals,” Rosenbloom said. Rosenbloom began practicing yoga more than a decade ago. He said he wanted to create a studio for Vinyasa — a more dynamic style of hot yoga — that was lacking in Evanston. Down Dog also brands itself as a student-friendly experience Rosenbloom said he encourages student feedback about class times and workout intensity. Lizzie Leopold, a theater and drama graduate student at Northwestern, said she appreciates Down Dog’s atmosphere. “It feels ver y neighborhood-y, she said. “They know my name when I walk in.

It’s small and friendly.” Still, the workout is rigorous. Down Dog’s style Vinyasa flow is also a type of power yoga. The studio is heated to 95 degrees with 40 percent humidity. “It’s not yoga for your grandmother,” Rosenbloom explained. In its first month, Rosenbloom said he has been very pleased with business, although class attendance has been limited. To attract new

students, Down Dog offers the first week of classes free and a 10 percent discount to NU students. Natasha Jones, a Down Dog instructor, said tyoga can provide balance in students’ lives. “This is a nice little oasis away from all of the craziness of being a student and having to worry about exams and finals and papers,” she said.

“Deering Days” event welcomes Class of 2016 By LAUREN CARUBA

daily senior staffer

A range of student groups, university departments and campus resources came together to organize Northwestern’s first ever Deering Days Welcome BBQ, the Wildcat Welcome finale held Wednesday on Deering Meadow. The three-hour event featured food, performances by NU music groups, raffles and tables highlighting student organizations. Pop artist Chet Haze — also known as Communication senior Chet Hanks — performed, and the radio station B96 (96.3 FM) set up a mobile music station. Organizers gave away an estimated $10,000 of free merchandise, said Ani Ajith, speaker of the senate for ASG and a main organizer of Deering Days. Associated Student Governmentdrove planning of the event, which was co-sponsored by the Interfraternity Council, Panhellenic Association,Residential College Board and Residence Hall Association. These groups funded the event, contributing money from their already existing budgets. Ajith estimated the cost to total somewhere between $5,000 and $6,000. Deering Days wrapped up Wildcat Welcome for members of the Class of 2016 and transfers, who all attended the barbecue with their peer adviser groups. The idea for Deering Days came from the Northwestern Community Building Initiative, a class offered in the School of Communication every fall in which students brainstorm solutions to campus issues. SafeRide and the college awareness program Kits ‘n’ Cats@NU were both projects originally developed in the class, Ajith said. “The point of it was to provide the Class of 2016 with this unique event that quite honestly hasn’t been done before,” said Ajith, a Weinberg junior and former Daily columnist. “We wanted to welcome them in a really, really refreshing

way.” Deering Days was “one of the largest collaborations ever at Northwestern University,” Ajith said. Sodexo, NU’s food service, provided free food for students with WildCARDs, and Mayfest helped organize the music and stage production. Facilities Management helped coordinate setup on Deering Meadow and waste disposal. Patrick Leonard,a producer for Mayfest, said he was impressed with the smooth collaboration between ASG and Mayfest. “It’s not something that we usually do and it’s not something we’ve ever done before, but I thought it was great,” the McCormick junior said. “I’d love to see It something like this hapwas a nice pen again.” closing event In addition to campus-wide collaboration, for Wildcat the groups organizing Welcome, to be Deering Days focused able to integrate heavily on reducing waste and cost, said current students both Mark Silberg, associate into the mix. vice president for the new ASG sustainability Sophie Friedman committee. The event PHA officer generated an estimated 500 pounds of compost and only about three or four pounds of total waste, he said. Foregoing bottles and disposable silverware, the event incorporated refillable beverage pitchers and compostable cutlery. Volunteers also directed students how to properly dispose of their waste at the composting stations. Silberg said the event’s sustainable approach resonated with many students. “What I’m really encouraged by is the number of students who would come up, compost something, look at me and say, ‘This is really wonderful. Why aren’t we doing this at all of our events?’” the Weinberg junior said.

PURPLE HAZE Communication senior Chet Haze performs his song, “White and Purple.” He also unveiled new two songs for new students at the close of the Deering Days Welcome BBQ.

Deering Days will hopefully serve as a template for planning future sustainable events at NU, organizers said. Sophie Friedman, vice president of membership and recruitment for PHA, said the event helped familiarize freshmen even more with NU. “It was a nice closing event for Wildcat Welcome, to be able to integrate current students into the mix,” the Medill senior said. “It gave

freshman students a really good idea of all the sorts of things that Northwestern has to offer.” The event’s organizers said they want Deering Days to become an annual tradition at NU. “It was really successful. We’re hoping it’s something that the university wants to continue for the years to come,” ASG Vice President Brad Stewart said.

New program brings NU students to Chicago By MEGHAN MORRIS

daily senior staffer

With the close of Wildcat Welcome programming, new students will be given the opportunity Sunday to explore the greater Chicago area. As part of “One Book, One Northwestern,” the Center for Civic Engagement organized a trip for 500 freshmen to explore various neighborhoods. Transfer students had the chance to go on a similar Chicago trip Tuesday. The program is the first of its kind at Northwestern, said Rob Donahue, director of the Center for Civic Engagement. Each group will travel to a different neighborhood under the guidance of a faculty member. The neighborhoods are broken down into ten themes, including environmental sustainability, transportation, immigration and arts. These multidisciplinary studies promote the idea that Chicago is accessible and a good resource for students no matter their area of study, Donahue said. One Book, One Northwestern’s 2012 selection is “Never a City So Real,” a book by Medill lecturer Alex Kotlowitz that is made up of vignettes focusing on different neighborhoods and the personalities that shape the city. “Almost every discipline can be enriched by taking advantage of what Chicago has to offer,” Donahue said. “Part of the message (of One Book) is that if you want to understand Chicago, you have to understand the communities that make up this place and the neighborhoods that are the lifeblood of Chicago.” The day will begin at 12:30 p.m. with an overview of the activities in Evanston. Students will be broken up into bus groups of 50, with one faculty adviser and about five student leaders per bus, Donahue said. Students will spend three hours exploring their particular neighborhood and participate in activities with their faculty member and student leaders, then regroup at the Feinberg School of Medicine for a buffet. Buses will return at 7 p.m. The trip is free for students, with funding from the President’s Office. Weinberg junior Kathryn Halpern said she decided to volunteer as a student leader to help freshmen

understand Chicago and learn more about the city herself. “Even though I’m from close by, I don’t have as many chances to explore as I’d like,” she said. “Chicago is a reason why Northwestern’s so great, but with so much on campus, it can be hard to leave.” Weinberg freshman Pam Keller said she signed up for the trip as a way to meet other freshmen and explore the city. “I thought of it as, ‘Why not?’ instead of, ‘Why?’” she said. “I hope to get a better understanding of Chicago.” Donahue said the program is a pilot for future engaged learning opportunities. “Students are excited about for their time in college: Not just learning information, but figuring out how apply that information I thought to to the world so they can be of it as, ‘Why effective scholars, workers not?’ instead of, and citizens,” he said. In addition to promot‘Why?’ I hope ing engaged learning, Donahue said he hopes to get a better event connects Northunderstanding this western’s downtown camof Chicago. pus better with the Evanston campus. He said NU Pam Keller, in Chicago fits well with Weinberg part of the University’s freshman strategic plan involving both more hands-on learning and intercampus partnerships. “Whether it’s in Evanston or Chicago, or somewhere across the globe, learning isn’t something that happens just when you’re sitting in a desk, in a traditional classroom,” Donahue said. “This is a way to recontextualize learning for students as they start at Northwestern, because that’s not the only way students learn.” Donahue said he expects about ten percent of the freshmen who registered for the event will not attend, so spots will be given to interested upperclassmen and freshmen on a first-come, first-serve basis Sunday.

Evanston playground wins reader’s award for handicap accessibility

Noah’s Playground for Everyone, a handicap accessibility playground on Lighthouse Beach, received the Reader’s Choice Award in Time Out Chicago Kids’ 2012 Hipsqueak Awards. The playground at 1431 Judson Ave. is named for Noah Cutter, a local boy born in 2003 with congenital neurological anomalies, according to an Evanston news release. He passed away in 2005, inspiring his parents to build an all-inclusive playground in his memory.

The Cutters collected donations to fundraise for the park, which was completed in 2008. The playground’s amenities include accessible parking, a ramp system, bright colors to help the visually handicapped maneuver, interactive bells and chimes, bathrooms and water fountains. The Cutters worked in conjunction with city staff to bring handicap accessibility to parks across Evanston, according to the release. “This project is a terrific example of a public and private citizen partnership that has provided extreme benefit to the donors as well as all children,� said Doug Gaynor, director of Evanston Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department, in the release. “We are very grateful that they were willing to share their gift with the greater Evanston community.�

The Chicago Department of Transportation estimates that construction will be complete in early November. Meanwhile, rush hour shuttles might experience delays.

Additionally, there will be no lane obstructions during rush hour.

Job center offers tech courses to community By Kelly Hwu

the daily northwestern

Evanston residents on the wrong side of the city’s digital divide have been improving their computer literacy at a recent offshoot of the Youth Job Center. The Community Technology Center opened in March after the local Illinois One Stop career center closed. The CTC provides Internet service to unemployed community members, allowing them to search for jobs online, and offers computer skills classes. Staff say a significant portion of Evanston residents lack basic computer skills and Internet knowledge because they don’t have computer access. Mo Schultz, CTC’s technology coordinator and trainer, teaches basic computing skills such as how to use Microsoft Word and Excel. The CTC has more than 20 workstations and is open Monday through Thursday for YJC youth from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. From 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., the lab is open to the public. Schultz said although attendance was slow in the beginning, she has begun seeing regular faces in recent weeks. “Through word of the masses, we’ve been getting a lot of referrals from community organizations like the Evanston library, LIFT Chicago, the YMCA and YWCA,â€? Schultz said. Though YJC specifically assists EvanWe’ve ston youth, Schultz said she works with a had a lot of variety of people, from job seekers high school dropouts to that are more bachelor degree-holding experienced ‌ participants looking for internships. who just want “We’ve had a lot of to get on their job seekers that are more and aged email and work. experienced who just want to get on their email and get on Mo Schultz, with their work,â€? Schultz CTC tech trainer said. Don Piven, CTC lab assistant, said he thinks the CTC can be useful for everybody, especially given the importance of the web when it comes to searching and applying for employment. Piven performs computer maintenance and teaches the class “Intro to Computers and the Internetâ€? at the center. “I enjoy working with clients because they’re eager to learn,â€? Piven said. “They’re coming out of here with good marketable skills.â€? The CTC currently has a self-guided word processor to teach visitors how to type and time their words per minute. In the future, the center will upgrade its resources by providing additional training opportunities through self-guided computer science programs, potentially including IC3 and the Microsoft Office Specialist Certification, Schultz said. Schultz said she does not believe there is a lack of computer teaching in Evanston schools. Still, she said the CTC focuses on community members who may not have access to computers or technology education, including children. Other than young people, the CTC caters to active job seekers and people over the age of 25. “We were able to secure funding and be open to not only serve the youth, but also the entire community,â€? Schultz said. Aminata Musa, 19, heard about YJC from friends. After completing the 10-day training period required for YJC membership, Musa was assigned a counselor to assist with her job searching and networking. “When you’re in this program, employers trust the YJC’s judgment, so it’s been easier to find jobs,â€? Musa said.

Student starts drug legalization course

Northwestern has named Julia Campbell the new director of conflict interest, a position that deals with internal workings within the Northwestern community. The University announced the creation of the Conflict of Interest Office on Sept. 14 in a news release. Campbell, a former associate compliance officer at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, will lead the new department. The office is tasked with overseeing and developing policies for all NU faculty members. The appointment comes after NU officials announced a new Conflict of Interest policy in August. Provisions include required training for faculty and staff and more transparency in terms of travel reimbursement, according to an email sent to staff and faculty by University Provost Dan Linzer and Jay Walsh, the vice president for research.

Behind Frances Fu’s petite frame and dimpled cheeks is a tough backbone dedicated to the legalization of marijuana. Fu is the co-founder and president of the new Northwestern chapter of Students for Sensible Drug Policy, an international student-run grassroots organization that promotes education about drug policies and ending drug wars. NU’s first SSDP chapter closed in 2009 after two years on campus. But Fu, a SESP sophomore, began working during her freshman year to bring the organization back. “I came to Northwestern believing that marijuana should be legalized, but I wasn’t really sure if I was going to do anything about it,” she said. After spending a weekend at an SSDP regional conference at Roosevelt University and learning about how the war on drugs affects higher education, youth and minorities, she saw a place for SSDP at NU. To measure student interest and opinion, she sat for three hours last fall quarter in Foster-Walker Complex striking up conversations with students. She also created a Facebook group. Over the next few months, Fu teamed up with other students, including NU SSDP co-founder Drew Lu, a Bienen junior who Fu said is taking a leave of absence from school this year. Currently there are six core members in SSDP who have hosted firesides and film screenings over the past two quarters. “When the general public thinks drug policy reform, they think it’s just potheads who are trying to legalize,” Fu said. “And I think at Northwestern you have a very special case because you have very intelligent people who are passionate about this subject.” Fu asked Weinberg Assistant Dean Mark Sheldonto be SSDP’s faculty adviser after hearing him talk about the legalization of marijuana in class. He said he agreed to be the group’s adviser after Fu impressed convinced him of SSDP’s focus. “I said, however, that somehow, if it was an opportunity or excuse for Northwestern students to get together and have parties and smoke pot, that’s not something that I was interested in at all,” Sheldon said. After taking a training course for Sexual Health and Assault Peer Educators, Fu was inspired to start a similar course focused on drug policy. SSDP worked with

recent increase in raids and of medical marijuana farms in California, a result of tension between state and federal law, SSDP intern Maryam Mahmoud said. Despite these federal efforts, there has been a steady increase in SSDP college chapters, Mahmoud said. There are more than 125 American chapters and more in Canada, Australia, Nigeria and the U.K. “The reason why there is an increase of chapters is just because people are becoming more open to the idea, and there’s becoming less of a bad stigma around it,” she said. Out of the upcoming course, Fu said she hopes to recruit educated and passionate members equipped to present at firesides, possibly work with University Health Services and participate in other University-sponsored drug-related programs such as AlcoholEdu.

Northwestern’s Under Armour sales continue to rise in the early part of the football season, as shoppers fill stores after wins, according to Crain’s Chicago Business. As the co-owner of the university’s official merchandise store, Let’s Tailgate Inc., Cindy Gaborek cites the quality of the jerseys and the positive vibes from fans as reasons for the increase in purchases. Northwestern’s “Chicago’s Big Ten Team” campaign has also contributed to increased sales, according to the article. “The jerseys are better constructed than the Adidas ones, they have numbers on the shoulders ­— people love them,” Gaborek said in the article. “Also, winning helps.” The 4-0 start to the season has attracted shoppers to jerseys of two NU quarterbacks, No. 2 Kain Colter and No. 13 Trevor Siemian, and a new style of Coach Pat Fitzgerald’s No. 51 uniform.

However, because he is a minor, he needs a “next friend,� someone to act on his behalf. In this case his mother acts represents his interests as his next friend. Christopher Cooper, the Greenwell family’s attorney, said even though EPD is currently conducting an internal investigation, he believes the result will not favor the Greenwells simply because police will want to avoid taking responsibility. He added that he doesn’t fear the lawsuit will affect the investigation because city officials will likewise try to have the suit dismissed rather than settle with the Greenwells. “I don’t think you can trust most municipalities to perform an objective investigation,� Cooper said. “In other words, in my experience as a civil rights attorney, most municipalities will not act appropriately when they learn of wrongful conduct by an employee. I don’t have any confidence in Evanston politicians resolving this.� Cooper said the Greenwell suit is the first Evanston case he has worked on, but “if Evanston is like most cities in America, it will not

in any shape or form admit wrongdoing at any time.� The suit Cooper filed alleges assault false imprisonment and violation of the Illinois state constitution.

NU pharmacy to accept third-party insurance policies Health services will extend accepted insurance beyond Aetna Student Health plan By Cat Zakrzewski

the daily northwestern

Northwestern University Health Service-Evanston Pharmacy will now accept most major private commercial insurance plans. Previously, the pharmacy only accepted students who were covered under the Northwestern University/Aetna Student Health Insurance plan, NUHS Director John Alexander said. The change will apply only to the pharmacy, and not other branches of health services, he explained, because the University does not charge for doctor visits with the exception of outside tests or X-rays. “We hope to be able to deal directly with personal insurers for well over 95 percent of national companies,� Alexander said. “Over the last year, we have been doing a huge amount

of contract work.� Alexander said the new change applied to hundreds of prescription plans, including those at companies that offer plans applying exclusively to prescriptions and those providing prescriptions to overall plans. He said the University began negotiations with the companies that covered the largest numbers of students first. “We’re moving down the priority list,� he said. During the 2011-2012 school year, 6,818 enrolled students were covered by the Aetna Student Health plan, said Christopher Johnson, director of risk management and safety. Because all students are required to have Aetna Student Health or their own health insurance plan, this means about two-thirds of the 19,000 Northwestern students had health insurance plans through a third party last year. The numbers for the current school year are not yet available because the deadline to register for Aetna Student Health is Oct. 1, Johnson added. The decision to accept the new insurance

policies will have the largest impact on undergraduates. Currently, approximately 2,000 undergraduates are on the Aetna Student plan, Johnson said. Therefore, about three quarters of the 8,000 NU undergraduates have insurance through a third party and may be affected by this I change. definitely Weinberg junior Brayan Luna is on his feel more family’s insurance plan. comfortable In the past, he has gone to CVS Pharmacy to dealing with the fill prescriptions. Unviersity than In the future, he other parties. said he would prefer to purchase medicine Brayan Luna, from the NU pharmacy Weinberg junior in Searle Hall. “It’s closer, so it would definitely be more of a convenience,� Luna said. “I definitely feel more comfortable dealing with the university than other parties. In a way, I feel like I can trust them more.� For other students, the change will make


little difference. Weinberg senior Mary Lin said even if the school’s pharmacy did accept the insurance she has through her family’s plan, she most likely would not use it. “I would probably just go to CVS,� Lin said. “It’s closer. I live off campus.� As the new health care law goes into effect, Alexander said it made sense to make this change now. With the passing of the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Americans under the age of 26 are guaranteed coverage by their family’s heath case plans. Alexander said while this law already was in effect in Illinois, the University expected to see more undergraduates using family plans. “Because of the health care law, we decided it was time to do this,� Alexander said. Johnson said the expected increase in students using third company insurance plans has yet to be seen. In the past four years, the number of students using the Aetna Student Health Insurance has actually increased by about 1,000, from 5,500, he said.

with I don’t think we had the usual energy we had the last few games.” NU’s offense, which entered the game leading the Big Ten in assists, instead relied on more individual attacking that could not break the DePaul defense. In the second half, the Blue Demons picked up the tempo, notching eight shots on goal while once again holding the Cats to three. In the 65th minute, Aguilar scored the first goal of the game when he caught Miller out of position on a run up the right side of the box. Aguilar’s shot from about 40 feet out quieted the crowd of 2,981. After NU picked up its urgency on the offensive end, DePaul managed to score another goal after a defensive breakdown. In the 76th minute,NU’s failed attempt to clear the ball gave Aguilar possession and a clear path to the goal down the left side of the field. Miller rushed out of goal to challenge the shot with his feet, but Aguilar easily won the battle and iced the game for DePaul, leaving Miller visibly frustrated with his defense. “(Aguilar) made two great plays,” Lenahan said. “He’s scored four or five goals against us in the last two years.” Both teams played with an edge throughout the match, forcing the referees to hand out four yellow cards.

Acting on behalf of Chabad House and Klein, Lubavitch-Chabad of Illinois filed a discrimination complaint in federal district court against NU, Telles-Irvin and University chaplain Timothy Stevens. “The University claims that it offers a wide variety of religious and community options but it is discriminating against Chabad House and the Jewish faith,” the complaint reads. NU officials will not comment while the matter is in litigation, said spokesman Bob Rowley. “They’re discriminating against Chabad, which is part of the Jewish faith,” said Klein, who also declined to comment on the litigation. Chabad House has played an active role in campus life for almost three decades, and Klein was involved in many aspects of campus life. He acted as adviser to AEPi and previously served as the associate master of the Communications Residence College. He also was influential in creating the University’s kosher meal plan and, until this year, served as the Supervising Manager of the program for the University and Sodexo.

called on by the University to aid in crises. AEPi president Ethan Merel said he did not expect the news. “Fraternities turn over membership every four years,” Merel said. “He has been there and seen the transitions, and he was always useful in providing advice.” Weinberg junior Alex Jakubowski responded to the news while in Italy by mobilizing support for Klein on social media. He created a Facebook group called, “We Support Rabbi Klein and Chabad at Northwestern.” “From taking students to White Sox games to talking them through failed relationships, Rabbi Klein has been one of the best resources at Northwestern for almost 30 years and is certainly one of the best people I have ever met,” Jakubowski said in an email to The Daily. Klein does not yet know the extent to which the University’s decision will impact his role on campus and said he was not sure if he would continue in his role as AEPi adviser or host previously scheduled firesides. While Klein is no longer officially affiliated with the University, he said his bond with NU remains strong. When he received the email alerting him of missing sophomore Harsha Maddula, he said he immediately began to drive around campus looking for him. “He may not be a part of the Jewish faith community, but he is a part of my community,” Klein said. “Northwestern is my community.”

Cats winning battle in trenches

Offensive , defensive lines lay foundation to 4-0 start By NICK MEDLINE

the daily northwestern

For Northwestern, translating non-conference success to Big Ten victories rests on winning the battle up front — on both sides of the ball. One month into the season, the Wildcats have done just that, readily establishing the line of scrimmage during their 4-0 start. Perhaps the biggest concern for NU entering the season was its offensive line play. With two new starters, Chuck Porcelli and Jack Konopka,many expected the unit to struggle. In 2011, the Cats received dismal production from their running backs, as none even reached the 500-yard milestone. Now, NU leans heavily on junior running back Venric Mark as a playmaker out of the backfield. Mark has averaged 5.5 yards per carryand is on pace to cruise past 1,000 yards on the season. For Mark to succeed, though, the work begins up front. Though erratic in week one, the offensive line has generally held strong up front. Offensive line coach Adam Cushingcredits the visible improvement to excellent communication. “It’s a very tight-knit group,” Cushing said. “And so the guys being all on the same page is how you have any success at offensive line.” The Boston College matchup functioned as a coming-out party for the line. Once the unit worked out the early-season kinks, it was able to dominate the Eagles front. The Cats ran for 293 yards, with 106 from senior Mike Trumpy.The yardage came on 60 attempts,a clear indication that coach Pat Fitzgerald felt comfortableletting the offensive line dictate the action. In the gamesealing drive, culminatingin a 27-yard scamper from Trumpy, the Cats did not attempt a pass. With Trumpy, Mark, Treyvon Green and Tyris Jones all seeing carries, the offensive line is aware of the backfield depth. “We have a lot of special talent on this offense,” senior offensive lineman Patrick Ward said. “If we can give them the space and the time to make the most of those abilities then we’ll feel really good about ourselves.” Cushing added that a solid offensive line prides itself on consistency.



Rafi Letzter/Daily senior staffer

GREAT SCOTT Defensive end Tyler Scott has been a driving force behind the line’s success, helping the defense limit opposing offenses to 2.81 yards per rush. The junior is tied for ninth in the Big Ten in tackles for loss.

That may have been absent last year, and still, Cushing sees room for growth. “I think the sky is the limit if we just continue to execute play in and play out,” Cushing said. “We got to eliminate any little mistakes that we make and we got to execute fundamentally.” In that same matchup, BC mustered only 25 yards on the ground.Running back Andre Williams had a rare 100yard outing against the Cats last season, but this time NU dominated up front. Redshirt freshman defensive lineman Deonte Gibson praised the leadership of the upperclassmen, namely Tyler Scott, Quentin Williams and Brian Arnfelt.

We’re a humble group and always believe we can get better every day. Deonte Gibson, defensive lineman

“They’re great leaders and in the off season we just dedicated ourselves to being better,” Gibson said. “Because the year before, we were the most ridiculed base team (on NU).” In the opener, Syracuse found considerable running room. Orange junior Prince-Tyson Gulley rushed

for 50 yards on seven carries, including a 14-yard score between the tackles. The unit somehow clamped down on Vanderbilt star Zac Stacy, holding the senior to a miserable 2.8 yards per carry on the night.Even though that same dominance carried over to the next two games, Gibson hopes the unit can retain its focus in the games to come. “Once you become complacent, that’s when our downfall occurs,” Gibson said. “We’re a humble group and always believe we can get better every day.” nicholasmedline2015@u.northwestern. edu

NU can’t conquer in-state rival DePaul the daily northwestern

It might be time to remove DePaulfrom the non-conference schedule. For the second straight year, No. 18 Northwestern (6-1-2)fell to its in-state rival, this time suffering a 2-0 defeat at home Wednesday. Alex Aguilar scored both goals in the second half to secure the win. The Blue Demons (3-5-0)also shut[made 2 words because I think shutout is a noun, but this is used as a verb] the Wildcats out 4-0 last season, which happened to be the last regular season loss NU suffered. “We were flat tonight,” coach Tim Lenahansaid. “One hundred percent goes to DePaul. They were the better team tonight. They were better coached and they had a better gameplan.” The box score reflected the Cats’ lethargic effort on a windy night at Lakeside Field.

both halves, ultimately finishing with a 12-6 advantage, pulling away significantly in the second half. The teams matched each other evenly in the opening frame, with the Blue Demons barely outshooting the Cats 4-3.Sophomore goalkeeper Tyler Millerstopped both shots that reached him, including an impressive onehanded jab at a shot headed toward the top of the goal. NU’s best offensive chance came near the end of the first half, when a shot from the left corner seemed to fool DePaul goalie Eric Sorby before he made the save. Sorby finished the game with two saves, picking up one in each half.

But for the most part, the Blue Demons held the Cats’ offensive attack in check. “They were able to match up with us in the middle, kind of like a matchup

When I left the Carrier Dome on Sept. 1 after the worst college football win I had ever witnessed, the script ran through my head. Northwestern had jumped out to a 22-point lead before casually giving up four touchdowns in about 15 minutes. Then, after driving the length of the field, quarterback Trevor Siemian faced a third-and-long situation. With no receivers open, he tucked the ball in and darted to the sidelines six yards from the marker. It was going to be fourth down. As he reached the edge, though, a Syracuse defender nudged him out of bounds. Siemian exaggerated – as every quarterback should – and miraculously drew a personal foul penalty. On the next play, he found Demetrius Fields in the end zone for the game-winning score. We can argue about the call for hours. The point is, the Wildcats got lucky. It felt like a loss. More specifically, it resembled a 2011 Boston Red Sox meltdown, if the NFL replacement refs swooped in to save the day. So the rest of the season played out in my mind. All were understandably negative. I imagined a quarterback controversy, more 400-yard passing games for opposing teams and a middling 6-6 season. Maybe worse. Almost four weeks later, I keep feeling the urge to tell Wildcats fans not to get excited. NU has knocked off three major conference opponents and sits at 4-0, although that hardly tells the story. The Vanderbilt offense went conservative late in game two. The Boston College football program practically died when Matt Ryan left for the NFL. As for South Dakota, I deadpanned that its players weigh less than I do. I can’t lie. Something changed, and when looking at this team, I get a strange, rare feeling: this could be the year for a Big Ten title run. The keys to what happened begin on defense. Very few casual football fans have heard the name Chi Chi Ariguzo. In typical NU fashion, an excellent player fails to receive significant attention— barring an outlandish Heisman publicity stunt a la Dan Persa. Ariguzo has been among the best defensive players in the Big Ten this season. He is incredibly versatile, leading the team in tackles, tackles for loss, interceptions and pass deflections. With dominant linebacker play – from David Nwabuisi and Damien Proby as well – this Cats defense plays to its strengths. Bottle up the run game, trust the maligned secondary to avoid giving up deep receptions and rely on pressure from a solid front four. Few expected this offense to struggle, but with the emergence of Venric Mark, it finally added a second dimension. With his elusiveness and big-play ability, Mark revived the once-dormant Cats rushing attack. Just add two capable quarterbacks – with very similar stat lines – and the deepest group of receivers in the conference. After a disastrous first few weeks, the Big Ten appears to be wide open. The jury is out on divisional foes Michigan and Michigan State, Nebraska failed to deliver on its hype and Iowa fell off the table after two home losses. I feel comfortable saying that NU is an unimpressive 4-0. But I guess that’s why they play the games. The script never unfolds as expected.
