Police detain person of interest in shooting

Evanston Police announced Thursday afternoon that a person of interest is in custody in connection with the killing of 14-year-old Dajae Coleman. Coleman, a freshman at Evanston Township High School , was shot and killed Saturday night while walking on the 1500 block of Church Street with friends. One of four shots fired hit Coleman in the chest, according to an EPD news release issued Sunday. In Thursday’s news release, EPD did not elaborate further about the person in custody but said another release would be issued when additional information becomes available to the public. EPD is working with the North Regional Major Crimes Task Force to investigate the case. “The investigation still continues to progress forward,� Cmdr. Jay Parrott wrote in the release. Meanwhile, the Evanston community is preparing for Coleman’s funeral on Saturday. A visitation will be held Friday night at Thompson Funeral Home, 1917 Asbury Ave., according to the ETHS website. A wake is scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday, followed by funeral services at 11 a.m. at the First Church of God Christian Life Center, 1524 Simpson St. Anyone with information on the Coleman case should call the EPD’s Juvenile Bureau at (847) 866-5050. — Manuel Rapada

Setting the Record Straight In a story Thursday about a lawsuit 13-year-old Diwani Greenwell has filed against the city and an Evanston police officer, the date Greenwell was handcuffed by the officer named in the suit was incorrectly listed as Sept. 20. The incident occurred on Aug. 20. The Daily regrets the error.

University to enforce old publicity policies


Officials will now enforce existing rules regarding chalk and flyer placement

Be careful where you chalk. After issues last year with students using semipermanent chalk on various parts of campus, Northwestern’s Norris Center for Student Involvement is now strictly enforcing its rules for publicizing campus eventsby fining groups who violate University policy. The use of spray chalk toward the end of last year by Associated Student Governmentelection candidates and moving company BoxCo. became problematic when some of the supposedly imperA lot of manent chalk did not actually wash off. Groups the stuff that will now be fined the full we’re enforcing cost of cleanup if their ads is stuff that’s cannot be easily removed with water, said Natalie already on the Furlett, associate director books. of CSI. CSI will also monitor Natalie Furlett, more closely where on Associate director campus students adverof the Norris tise. According to NU’s Center for Student advertisement policy, Involvement students are allowed to chalk and tape flyers in eight “advertising zones” across campus, including the stretch of sidewalk from The Arch to The Rock and the walkway leading up to the Norris Student Center.The areas in front of Deering Library and the Technological Institute remain off-limits, as does the sidewalk along Sheridan Road.Although the advertising zones and most of the rules regarding publicizing events have not changed much, the University has signaled a shift in its intentions to begin penalizing violators.

“The biggest change this year is enforcement,” Furlett said. “A lot of the stuff that we’re enforcing is stuff that’s already on the books.” This year, Furlett said, she plans on communicating more with students about where they can chalk and place flyers. For the past week she has been emailing students who have placed flyers under the overhang of the Jacobs Center.The advertising zone in that area extends from Sheridan Road to the overhang but not underneath it. Former Daily columnist Steven Monacelli, a Communication senior, and running mate Kam Dodge, a SESP senior,used spray chalk last spring to spread their ASG campaign logo across campus. Although they used what was supposed to be washable chalk, it did not come off every type of concrete across campus and was “much more permanent than it was ever intended to be,” Monacelli said. Their logo is still visible in some areas. Monacelli and Dodge also campaigned on the Sheridan Road sidewalk, which is usually off-limits. Monacelli said University publicity guidelines have not been communicated well in the past. The gray area of publicizing on Sheridan Road has caused problems for NU student organizations in the past. In January, Evanston Police cited the political group Sincerely, America for defacement of city property after students painted an orange stripe for a half-mile along the eastern sidewalk. The group had been petitioning against Evanston’s so-called “brothel law,”The Daily previously reported. Members of Sincerely, America, which is currently inactive on campus, declined to comment on last year’s incident. CSI’s communications with students regarding the University’s publicity policy has caused some groups to alter their approach to campus publicity. Alex Onsager, co-CEO of NU Student Holdings,which owns BoxCo., said the group recently began testing different types of spray chalk to ensure they will wash off. BoxCo. will contact CSI and share with other groups what brand of chalk is most effective, the Weinberg senior said.

‘Harsha, if Authorities recover body, investigation into Maddula’s death continues By michele corriston and patrick svitek daily senior staffers

Authorities pulled the body of Harsha Maddula out of Wilmette Harbor on Thursday, six days after the Northwestern student went missing, touching off an exhaustive search that included hundreds of student volunteers, family members from across the country and nearly two dozen law enforcement agencies and fire departments. At a news conference Thursday night, University spokesman Al Cubbage said University Police was notified around 7 p.m. that a body was found in Lake Michigan. Maddula’s wallet, WildCARD and cell phone were with the body, Cubbage said. Maddula was pronounced dead at 10:45 p.m. Thursday, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. As of early Friday morning, there were no indications of trauma on Maddula’s body. Cubbage told reporters that investigators from the Wilmette Police Department have not determined the cause of death, but there were no signs of foul play on the body. In an email to the NU community, University President Morton Schapiro expressed his condolences to Maddula family members who had flown from Long Island, N.Y., to Chicago in search of their loved one. “The loss of one member of the Northwestern community deeply affects us all, and as we start the new academic year, normally a time of joy and optimism, we do so this year with a heavy heart,” Schapiro wrote. Maddula vanished early Saturday morning after leaving an off-campus

party with friends. UP was notified Saturday evening. Maddula’s parents and NU students did not learn that the sophomore was missing until Monday, when UP called the Maddula family and the University issued an emergency alert notice. Maddula’s disappearance swept campus into a tumultuous week of search parties, news conferences and mass flyering as family, friends and even strangers hunted for any clues about Maddula’s wherabouts. Hundreds of students spent the first day of classes combing campus and the surrounding areas. Authorities began searching the waters of Lake Michigan for a body Wednesday after they learned a Wilmette cell tower had received a “ping” from Maddula’s phone about an hour after he was last seen. The lakefront search was called off Thursday, when Cubbage told reporters that Wednesday’s operation had not been successful and weather conditions had become too prohibitive for a second try. Around 10 p.m. Thursday, a solemnlooking Cubbage held a news conference to announce that Wilmette Police had discovered a body believed to be Madulla’s. Cubbage told reporters that Maddula’s body was found floating between some boats in Wilmette near the Sheridan Road Bridge. “Why the body was found today and not yesterday during the extensive search that occurred? I don’t know the answer,” Cubbage said, referring to Wednesday’s all-hands-on-deck search. Cubbage said cell phone signals examined by investigators are “consistent with someone walking” from the

off-campus party at which Maddula was last seen to the area surrounding Wilmette Harbor. Less than an hour after Cubbage’s announcement, Associated Student Government released a statement through vice president Brad Stewart describing Maddula as a “cherished member” of the NU community. “It is during moments like these that the true strength of our Northwestern family shows,” the statement said. “We are stronger than we ever could be apart. We are one Northwestern.” At a news conference Thursday morning, Cubbage implored students to share any information that they may have had about Maddula’s situation, calling the void of credible leads the “biggest challenge” facing authorities since Maddula was first reported missing. “Have we talked to all the people that we need to? Are there others who were there that we haven’t reached?” he told The Daily after the news conference. “That’s why we want anybody who knows anything to come forward.” As Cubbage briefed reporters, students experiencing their first day of classes craned their necks to catch a glimpse beyond a parade of broadcast news trucks. “It’s a somber start to the school year,” Cubbage said. “Clearly something like this casts a shadow over the start of the school year.” Information about Harsha Maddula’s disappearance can be reported to University Police at 847-491-3254.

you’re listening...’ Student community remembers one of its own during late-night vigil

By paulina firozi

daily senior staffer

Hundreds of students gathered around The Rock late Thursday night after hearing the news of Harsha Maddula’s death. The gathering was originally planned by residents of the Public Affairs Residential College as a vigil for the thenmissing McCormick sophomore before NU spokesman Al Cubbage announced Maddula’s body had been recovered from Wilmette Harbor. During the vigil, students spoke about knowing Maddula as a classmate and as a friend. Some told stories of sharing meals after classes, while others recounted what they would no longer be able to share with one of the members of the NU community. Zueber Juma, a fellow McCormick sophomore, remembered his friend and conversations they shared. “We liked talking about life aspirations, community,” he said. Juma said he visited Millennium Park

with Maddula when Maddula posed for a photo — an image that has since been plastered on fliers around Evanston and published by newspapers across the country. “Harsha,” he continued. “If you’re listening, I love you, man, and hopefully I’ll see you soon.” Weinberg freshman Brady Edwards recalled meeting Maddula on one of his first nights at NU, when residents of PARC broke into groups to get to know each other. “My group was led by Harsha,” he said. “We developed a saying that PARC chose us. From that night until now I know why PARC chose us. Because we’ve become such a family … But now I don’t know him as part of that family. I’m just sad that I can’t get to know him like all the other guys did.” Edwards noted that although he didn’t know Maddula well, he decided to write a message on the banner that was set out on the Norris University Center ground floor Thursday morning. Burgwell Howard, assistant vice

president of student engagement, asked people gathered at the vigil to take time during the week to add messages to the banner. “I encourage people over the next couple of days, to stop over there to read the messages from people who knew him well and to add your own thoughts,” he said. “It’s our intent to allow the community to express itself and, at an appropriate time, share those thoughts with Harsha’s family to know how this community viewed him, loved him and cared about him and had hopes and dreams for him.” University chaplain Timothy Stevens reminded students of the importance of unity in times of mourning. Earlier Thursday, more than 300 students convened outside of Seabury Hall to volunteer for search efforts. For students like Weinberg sophomore Aileen Comer, the atmosphere was solemn as search parties set out six days since Maddula was last seen. “It’s weird being here,” she said. “I just met (Maddula’s) cousin. And I just came from SPAC. It’s like coming into the real

world from your fake world.” At the vigil Thursday evening, before observing a moment of silence, Stevens asked students to continue to take care of one another and to console each other during these trying times. “As a community, this is a great loss and we’re all affected in many different ways, whether we knew Harsha well or we didn’t know him very well at all,” he said. “We’re all deeply affected. It’s good to be together to show each other support and concern. That’s what a community does and that’s what Northwestern does.” After the moment of silence, members of the a capella group, Brown Sugar, sang “Halo” by Beyonce to honor Maddula. Following the gathering, students remained outside of Harris Hall to light candles and paint The Rock in remembrance. Associated Student Government is planning a memorial ceremony for Friday.

LATE START: NU’s quarter system advantage

For most student-athletes, being four weeks into the season means midterms. At Northwestern it means school is just getting started. The Wildcats have played four football games already and did not have to go to class until Thursday. NU won all four games and goes for its fifth win on Saturday against Indiana. “There’s no doubt in my mind it’s a huge advatange not being in school,” coach Pat Fitzgerald said. “I promise you our guys love it.” NU’s fall sports have taken advantage of the quarter system this year. The five sports — football, field hockey, women’s soccer, men’s soccer, and volleyball — have combined for a 34-10-4 record before school started. The football team has certainly excelled under Fitzgerald with a record of 15-2 in the last five years, in the time period before school has started. The quarter system is a selling point for NU as a whole, but for the football program, it is an especially strong incentive for recruiting, Fitzgerald said, because there are an average of four games per year before school starts. That equals 16 games before school starts for football players during their NU careers. Add a bowl game between quarters and NU’s football players spend nearly half of their season not in class. “That’s like the NFL,” Fitzgerald said. That’s ridiculous.”

An NU advantage?

Although it may seem like an advantage for NU to focus solely on athletics for the first four weeks of the season, other student-athletes from around the Big Ten said they are not too sure. Illinois center Graham Pocic said it would be cool to not have to worry about classes for the first couple weeks of the season, but acknowledged that school does start eventually. Whether it’s the beginning of August or end of September doesn’t matter. “You go from camp where you’re just focusing on football and you come back and you got to start school the same week you start preparing for your first opponent,” Pocic said. “It’s tough, but at some point you’re going to be making that adjustment. Week one or week four, it’s pretty much the same thing.” However, his teammate Michael Buchanan said he thinks the clear focus on football can be a big benefit for teams like NU. “That would be a really big advantage to just be able to get into the season

vs. INDIA NA 9/29, 11 a .m.

and get adjusted,” the defensive lineman said. “It might be a shock once school actually does start, but it would be an advantage, getting settled into the season and you’ve kind of got your routine down.” The routine would include time management, the key for student-athletes juggling everything they need to do in a given week. Buchanan said his time management skills have improved since he got to college. By learning to better balance his school work with his football practice, Buchanan, now a senior, gives himself plenty of time to get some quality sleep at night. By being alert and awake, Buchanan is able to get all of his work done so he can focus on the game ahead. “You really have to focus on getting yourself to bed so throughout the day you can be productive,” Buchanan said. “So you’re not worrying about it at the end of the week when you need to be studying game film and preparing to play a game on Saturday.” These are the same issues NU student-athletes face, but don’t have to deal with for a number of weeks until school starts — and senior guard Chuck Porcelli said the transition from athlete to student-athlete is not as challenging as many people think. “We’re always preparing mentally all week whether it’s just football or football and school,” Porcelli said. “What it comes down to mostly is time management, prioritizing what you need to have done and leaving no stone unturned in the classroom and no stone unturned on the field.”

More time, more film

When Fitzgerald was a student at NU, he used his free time before school started to watch television. In today’s world of constant distraction, it is easy for student athletes to lose focus on what they need to do to prepare each week, but Fitzgerald said he is happy with how his team has not fallen into the trap. “I remember back in my day I was just back and watching ‘Doogie Howser’ and ‘The Wonder Years’,” the coach said. “They’ve got distractions, but the leadership and the captains are doing a great job.” The team has committed itself to getting into the film room as much as possible, and it has all been on the shoulders of the upperclassmen. Junior wide receiver Rashad Lawrence said it’s nice to get the time to focus only on football and watch as much film on the opponent as he can. It has also given the Cats the ability to watch film with different position groups with whom they don’t normally get the opportunity. “We really get to come in and spend as much time as we want in the film room with each other,” Lawrence said. “You get to pick each other’s brain. We get in with the quarterbacks a lot. If we want to we can get in there with the (defensive backs) sometimes.”

Freshman energy

One of the biggest benefits of having time at the beginning of the season to focus only on football is the ability for freshmen to spend more time learning the schemes. NU has three freshmen on its two-deep depth chart that have seen the field: defensive lineman Dean Lowry, safety Traveon Henry and superback Dan Vitale. It is an advantage MacPherson called “invaluable.” “For them to be able to come and have a routine down from a football standpoint before they have to develop an academic routine is just a great advantage,” MacPherson said. Lowry is one of the younger players who has used the extra time to find his way onto the field. He only has five tackles through four games this season, but his impact has manifested all over the field. The extra time also has given transfer cornerback Quinn Evans time to adjust to a new team. The senior joined the team from Stanford over the summer and has already seen quality minutes on the field. He is listed as a co-starter on the depth chart but got his first career start as a member of the Cats last week against South Dakota. Already in his fifth season of playing college football, Evans said the transition back to school is old and everyone is prepared for getting into an academic mindset. “We’ve been great students and great athletes our whole lives, so going back to school is nothing new,” he said. Linebacker David Nwabuisi said it does not matter whether the Cats have class or not; the only thing that matters is how NU plays on the field. “We might be a little less tired during the week,” the senior said before the game against Vanderbilt on Sept. 8. “But when we go out there on Saturday and put the pads on none of that stuff matters. We know they’re going to be ready whether they’re in school or not.”

Black makes difference on and off the field By ROHAN NADKARNI

daily senior staffer

Most 6-foot-2-inch, 294-pound defensive linemen intimidate a room full of people rather easily. But Indiana defensive tackle Larry Black Jr. saves his intimidation for the field, revealing a much different side when not crashing helmets in the trenches. The redshirt senior first fell in love with baseball, rooting for his hometown Cincinnati Reds while growing up in the city. And although Black loves Indiana, his heart remains at home with his family. “I love keeping up with the Reds outside of football,” Black said. “I’m a big family guy, I love my family. I hang out at home whenever I get a chance.” In fact, Black began his athletic career as a baseball player. As a child, he played catcher before ever trying football. When Black did put on a football uniform for the first time, he played in the Pee Wee league, but quit because he preferred other sports. But once Black entered his middle school years, his body steered him toward football, and he never looked back. Black began to rack up the awards during his senior year of high school. The defensive lineman earned all-state, all-city and first team all-league selections that year, and picked up the Anthony Munoz Lineman of the Year award as the best defensive lineman in his division of Ohio. After redshirting his freshman year at Indiana, Black continued to garner attention when he made his debut on the college field in 2009. Sporting News recognized Black with spots on its Freshmen AllAmerican and All-Big Ten teams. Family plays a big role in Black’s football pursuits. Larry Sr. and Tampala Black,Larry Jr.’s parents, still provide the driving force behind their son’s play. “My family is very supportive,” Black said.

“Whenever I’m down or need that extra push, they’ll be right there for me. They’ve helped me make it this far in life, and they keep on pushing me.” Whatever his motivation, Black’s play has helped propel Indiana to its current 2-1 record. In addition to invaluable defensive leadership, Black continues to stuff the stat sheet for the Hoosiers. So far this season, the redshirt senior has recorded nine tackles, including two sacks and four tackles for loss, as well as a pass defended. Black entered the season as the team’s active leader in career tackles for loss. With two sacks already, Black has set a career high for sacks in a season,with nine games still left to go. Black and his teammates take great pride in representing their school as a legitimate Big Ten football team. Although often dismissed as a basketball school, Black thinks Indiana can still make some noise in the conference. “We definitely need to start winning more games, but I take no shame in playing for my school,” he said. Looking toward his future, Black admits that playing professional football would be another dream come true. Yet the Midwestern boy’s love for his hometown could lead him on a very different path. “I see myself going back to my neighborhood and working with the kids there,” Black said. “You always have those coaches who coached you as a child that helped out and I could be that person.” For now, the recreational sport management major remains focused on being the best football player he can be. Despite Black’s noble ideas on serving his community once he graduates, Northwestern should be very worried come Saturday as No. 97 stands over the ball, waiting to feast on offensive players. He’s still a menace on the field.

Corner finds reward after soul searching By rohan nadkarni

daily senior staffer

Nick VanHoose and Denzel Washington have more in common than their rugged good looks. The redshirt freshman cornerback and legendary movie star also share a taste for acting, with VanHoose making the discovery recently. “I’m going to switch my major to communications,” said VanHoose, formerly listed as undecided while toiling away in Weinberg. VanHoose said he would want Washington to play him in a movie. The Urbana, Ohio native discovered his acting talent when he took Analysis and Performance of Literature. VanHoose’s first performance, an interpretation of the song “I’m Just a Kid at Heart,” spurred his interest in the dramatic. But VanHoose’s primary love remains football. He’s started every game so far this season at cornerback for Northwestern, after also playing some running back in high school. And although VanHoose thinks he could make a good slot receiver, his services in the secondary have been invaluable. In 2011, NU finished last in the Big Ten and 71st in the country for pass defense. The secondary last year, even with senior leaders Jordan Mabin and Brian Peters, often sunk the performance of the team. This year, the team went with a new look in the defensive backfield, introducing VanHoose, transfer Quinn Evans and freshman Traveon Henry, resulting in a stingier unit. “I just wanted to do whatever I could to help the team,” VanHoose said of his situation last season, when he sat out due to his redshirt. “But it wasn’t my time yet.” VanHoose’s time came this season. He’s often matched up with the opponent’s best receiver, a testament to his skills as a pure cover corner. “I’ve just gotten a lot better,” VanHoose said of his success this season. “In my first game, I was just trying not to get beat. After a while you get comfortable, and you start

gaining confidence.” Unfortunately for VanHoose, no amount of confidence could keep him on the field against Vanderbilt, when he left the game after the second play due to injury. “I hated it so much,” VanHoose said. “I knew I could be out there helping. That’s the worst possible feeling.” VanHoose notched two passes defended and two breakups in his first four games of the season. But the redshirt freshman knows he still needs to go a long way, even if he doesn’t necessarily believe he will try to go pro when he graduates. “I just want to be the best football player I can be,” VanHoose said. “If that means I’m good enough to go pro, that’s great; otherwise, I’m not worried about it.” But VanHoose’s football future was in question before it even started. He admitted to considering quitting the team in the beginning of his freshman year, before even taking a snap. Like many NU students, VanHoose found it difficult to juggle school, his social life and his extracurricular activities. Ultimately, VanHoose decided to stick with football — but not before some serious soul searching. “It was tough,” VanHoose said. “I didn’t know how I was going to balance everything. I really thought I would quit, but I finally decided to stick with it.” The Cats will need VanHoose’s full effort will now more than ever Saturday, when the Cats play their first Big Ten game against Indiana. With the team sporting a 4-0 record, this could be the year NU makes a run to the conference championship game, a goal highlighted on a board in its team meeting room. Even coach Pat Fitzgerald acknowledged the team will be asking more of VanHoose as the most important games of the season come. “Nick’s been pretty consistent,” Fitzgerald said. “(But) here we go now in Big Ten play. We’ll see how he plays moving forward. But so far, so good in his first four tests.”

Indiana is coming off a loss to Ball State in which it gave up 41 points. The Hoosiers are playing without their starting quarterback, Tre Roberson, who broke his leg against Massachusetts. The betting line favors Northwestern by 11 points. Don’t count coach Pat Fitzgeraldamong those who are assuming the Wildcats are already 5-0. “(Indiana coach Kevin Wilson) has been one of the most dynamic offensive minds now for over a decade,” Fitzgerald said of the former NU assistant coach. “They put a lot of stress on you from what they do tempo-wise.” Despite the loss of Roberson, the Hoosiers have proven they are still an offensive threat, posting 39 points in that loss to Ball State. Quarterbacks Cameron Coffmanand Nate Sudfeld combined for 423 yards passing with four touchdowns and no interceptions, completing more than 67 percent of their passes. “They obviously had a tough setback when they lost Tre,” Fitzgerald said. “But Cameron and Nate picked up right where they left off.” The quarterback duo’s favorite target was wide receiver Cody Latimer, who caught four balls for 115 yards and two touchdowns, including a 70-yard score on a pass from Sudfeld. Latimer ranks third in the Big Ten in receiving yards per game, averaging 74.3 yards per contest. “I really felt in preseason that we had a really good young player that was going to be ... a diamond in the rough kind of guy,” Wilson said of Latimer on the Big Ten coaches teleconference this week. An added complication for NU is that Fitzgerald and his staff have just one game of tape to study Coffman and Sudfeld, who have had an extra week to prepare for Saturday’s matchup after Indiana’s bye last week. The limited amount study material will force the Cats to prepare to be unprepared, Fitzgerald said. “We’re going to have to do a lot of adjusting on Saturday defensively,” he said. “We anticipate that.” Those adjustments will likely have to come on the fly as new Indiana offensive coordinator Seth Littrell has shown he likes to work fast. Under Littrell this season, the Hoosiers have run a play every 21.4 seconds. That fast-paced attack has paid dividends for Indiana, which is ranked 10th in the NCAA in total offense racking up 538.33 yards per game. Fitzgerald said he expects his team will be able to

handle the up-tempo Indiana offense because the NU defense practices against a high-octane attack every day. “I would like to think that we’ve prepared for it because that’s what we do,” Fitzgerald said. “We’re not a believer in having guys out there that are steak-puff, marshmallow men. If we recruit guys that are in good shape in high school and play with a great motor in high school, then getting them with our strength and conditioning program, hopefully they’re going to be the same way.” The Cats’ contest with Indiana marks the first of four games against conference opponents that are coming off a bye, giving them an extra week to prepare and get healthy. However, from 2002 to midway through 2010, Big Ten teams went 17-32 in

games after bye weeks, according to the Wall Street Journal. “Hopefully at the end of the run we say it wasn’t an advantage,” Fitzgerald said. “At times it’s been a benefit to us, and at other times we haven’t come out of the bye and played very well ourselves.” NU enters Saturday with the morale of a team that did exactly what it hoped to do in non-conference play, winning all four games. The Cats seek to start 5-0 for just the third time since 1962, a feat most recently accomplished in 2010. “We’ve just built up a lot of confidence in ourselves through the first part of the season,” senior left tackle Patrick Ward said. “We just trust in ourselves.” That’s a much improved attitude that last year’s Big Ten opener when NU limped into a matchup with

Illinois coming off of a disappointing 21-14 loss at Army. Still sophomore quarterback Trevor Siemian said the same mentality that the Cats tried to use to get past the loss to Army applies to moving on from their undefeated non-conference record this year. “Win or lose, we have a 24-hour rule,” Siemain said. “We just try to flush whatever happened last week or the week before. It’s 1-0 this week.” A win on Saturday would cap a perfect 4-0 record in NU’s homestand, its first streak of four straight home games since 1934. “I kind of feel like the White Sox with a four-game homestand here,” Fitzgerald said. “We need to finish the homestand.”

Referee fumble highlights union polarization joseph misulonas Daily columnist

Williams Shoes


On Wednesday, the NFL reached an agreement with the official refereesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; union, ending a lockout that lasted the entire preseason and the first three weeks of the regular season. The league had hired replacement referees to officiate the games during the lockout. On Monday night, the replacements made a truly awful call at the end of the Packers-Seahawks game that stole a victory away from the Packers. The Ravens-Patriots game was also decided on a last-second field goal which may or may not have gone wide of the posts. These controversial calls generated significant outrage. Even Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan, himself a Packers fan, weighed in, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Give me a break. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to get the real refs.â&#x20AC;? It is, at first glance, surprising that the pro-business Ryan came out in support of a private sector union. It would be unfair to paint Paul Ryan as a union supporter based on one comment about NFL referees. Ryan even made a statement about how the replacement referees were like Obama, although the better comparison would have been that Obama is the NFL: Instituting horrible policies (replacement refs) that are hurting our small business owners (the football teams) and their profit margins (victories). However, the referee scandal highlights Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s issue with unionization. In the face of corporate greed, Americans are often willing to stand up and fight in support of unions. However, when unions make demands during times of hardship â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Chicago Teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Union

demanding a 30 percent base pay raise during a recession, for example - they are often seen as an entitled and destructive force. This often-conflicting view puts politicians on a tightrope when speaking about the issue. Wisconsinites may support Gov. Scott Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bill to strip collective bargaining rights from public unions, but that does not mean Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney should assume they will also support slashing the jobs of teachers, police officers, and firefighters to make up budget deficits. The more unions you go after, the more you risk alienating constituents. In our polarized political atmosphere, unionization has become polarized as well. Following World War II, big business and unions allied together to promote their joint interests. But as our political parties began to drift apart in the late â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;70s and early â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;80s, the alliance between business and labor severed, making every union contract dispute a proxy war in the ongoing battle between right and left. To restore the American middle-class means to restore American unions. Workers must be able to bind together to ensure a comfortable, reliable standard of living. But unions have to recognize that workers in China and third world countries can work for 10 cents per hour, and they must be accommodating to businesses to ensure that they remain profitable. Otherwise, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be leaving our country in the hands of Division III referees. Joseph Misulonas is a Medill junior.

Chabad House

State-level rabbi, Chabad House back Klein Illinois Lubavitch-Chabad, director says officials discriminated against faith By Cat Zakrezewski

the daily northwestern

The director of Lubavitch-Chabad of Illinois called Northwestern’s decision to cut ties with Rabbi Dov Hillel Klein and Tannenbaum Chabad House a “tremendous injustice” on Thursday. Rabbi Daniel Moscowitz said Klein had been asked to leave without due process, following reported allegations of violating the University’s alcohol policy. “Klein was singled out,” Moscowitz said. “He is a leader in the Northwestern community, and he was called in and told to leave without any discussion of any of the facts.” Lubavitch-Chabad decided to file a complaint against Northwestern when the University refused to provide evidence of Klein violating alcohol policy, Moscowitz said. Moscowitz declined to comment when asked if Klein had ever discussed serving alcohol to underage students at Chabad House with University administrators.

Klein told The Daily on Wednesday he had served students wine and hard liquor at Chabad House during the organization’s Shabbat dinners. He said he had not broken any Illinois state laws, which make an exception for underage drinking during religious services. However, NU’s 2011-2012 Handbook does not make any similar exception. The district court claim also accused the University of “discriminating against Chabad and the Jewish faith.” “I think it speaks for itself,” Moscowitz said. Weinberg senior Matthew Renick, president of the student executive board at Chabad House, said he felt the University was discriminating against the Jewish faith “to an extent,” but was most upset about how NU handled the situation. “It seems like it was less of a conversation and more of a one path kind of thing,” Renick said. Moscowitz called the University’s decision “unilateral” with “no regard for fact.” Moscowitz said the discrimination against Klein “resurrects” what he called Northwestern’s anti-Semitic history. When Chabad House first attempted to open at NU, Klein fought a seven-year battle that eventually made its way to the Supreme Court. “What it comes down to is Northwestern was not nearly as accepting of Jewish life as it is now,” Renick said. “To take the frontrunner out of the picture, I don’t think that’s right.”

He is a leader in the Northwestern community, and he was called in and told to leave without any discussion of any of the facts.

Rabbi Daniel Moscowitz, director of Lubavitch-Chabad of Illinois

Moscowitz said he is proud of all University President Morton Schapiro has done for NU’s Jewish community. What he finds offensive, he said, is the University’s decision to allow Arthur Butz, a McCormick professor who supported Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s denial of the Holocaust in 2006, to remain on faculty. “It’s very difficult to see a situation like this today,” Moscowitz said. “On one side you see Professor Butz is still a part of the University, and on the other side, Rabbi Klein is still being dismissed.” Moscowitz said in the past 27 years he has known Klein, the rabbi has always worked “hand-in-hand” with the University on many initiatives, such as bringing Kosher food to the dining halls. “If you cut me, I would bleed purple,” Klein said Wednesday. “I have been a very dedicated servant to this community and campus.”

On April 12, Schapiro praised Klein for his assistance of students through Chabad House at the “Conversations with the President” event, according to the organization’s website. “We question everything — that’s what you do in higher education, but we also enhance, and that makes us very unusual, as you know, and (Klein) is one of the people who deserves the credit for that,” Schapiro said at the time. Although Klein performed his last official services with the University on Wednesday for Yom Kippur, Chabad House will continue its programming in Evanston. Klein said Wednesday he remained uncertain about how the University’s decision would affect his scheduled fireside talks with students or his role as fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi’s adviser. Evanston Police spokesman Cmdr. Jay Parrot said unless evidence emerges that Klein broke any law, he would continue to act in his capacity as Evanston Police chaplain. Klein said he hopes Chabad House can become affiliated with the University again, and sooner rather than later. “I think Chabad House is a great asset, something to boast about in Northwestern’s Jewish life,” Renick said. “Without Rabbi Klein as a part of that, it doesn’t have the same weight.”

New electricity plan produces renewable energy By Manuel Rapada

the daily northwestern

Nearly 25,000 Evanston residential and small business electricity customers are now receiving 100 percent renewable energy and saving money on their utility bills, according to city officials. Customers eligible for the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s electricity aggregation program began receiving energy from alternate supplier Constellation Energy in August if they did not actively opt out of the program. This month, participating residential customers

received bills reflecting the new supplierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rate, which for many is less than that of ComEd. Small businesses involved in the electricity bundling program will receive updated bills in October. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are really very happy that we have succeeded in getting aggregation,â&#x20AC;? said Jonathan Nieuwsma, vice president of Citizensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Greener Evanston. A typical customer who uses 9,000 kilowatt-hours annually will save $22 a month, according to a city memo. By bundling residential and small business electricity accounts, Evanston negotiated with alternate suppliers on behalf of eligible customers to secure a more competitive rate ComEd could offer.

Nearly all eligible households and small businesses are participating. Less than two percent of residents opted out, wrote Catherine Hurley, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sustainable programs coordinator, in an e-mail to The Daily. Nieuwsma could not speculate on why a customer would opt out of the program because of its economic and sustainability advantages. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of any reason why any rational person would want to opt out,â&#x20AC;? he said. Evanston resident Padma Rao, one of the few residents who opted out of the city program, said she did so because she takes issue with the way the city signed

Program encourages globalism Language departments come together to promote multilingual studies at NU By Daniel Schlessinger daily senior staffer

In an effort to coordinate language and cultural studies across all Northwestern schools, the University is introducing the Global Languages Initiative , a program promoting intercultural and multilingual skills. The program, led by profs. Katrin Volknerand Penny Nichols, is the result of many years of development and numerous grants, including a Hewlett Foundation grant for its website. It is largely an extension of the Council on Language Instruction, which helps coordinate the efforts of the NU language departments. Volkner, a senior lecturer in NUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s German department and director of the Multimedia Learning Center, and Nichols, a senior lecturer in the department of Spanish and Portuguese, said multilingualism is increasingly important as globalism becomes a more prominent aspect of life. As of 2009, about one in five Americans spoke a second language, as compared to one in three Europeans, according to articles from The New York Times and Euro Politics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we really are preparing our students to be global citizens and global leaders, then an If we really are essential ingredient in preparing our that would be language,â&#x20AC;?

Volknerand NichPenny Nichols, olssaid they do not wish senior lecturer to add more language of Spanish and requirements, but they Portugese did express strong interest in engaging students from schools other than Weinberg. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This started with Weinberg, but the idea is that the dialogue would be across all the other schools,â&#x20AC;? Nicholssaid. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What role could languages play for a McCormick student, or a Medill journalist, or even a Kellogg student?â&#x20AC;? The program was designed around NUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2011 Strategic Plan objectives, which included global and community engagement. GLI Global engagement outreach plans for this fall involve multicultural events held at the Rock, free international film screenings at the Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art, and various speakers throughout the year. To engage the community, the GLI already has a student advisory board of globally engaged students representing all NU schools, as well as a website and a Facebook group. The website will help organize resources involving NUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 23 foreign language programs, study abroad opportunities, research on the benefits of multilingualism and alumni who use foreign languages for work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Alumni are often surprised in looking back in what ways language has enriched their lives,â&#x20AC;?

Archaeology class digs into 19th century life By Jess Floum

the daily northwestern

Students in Prof. Mark Hauserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sIntroduction to Archaeology class mined Northwesternâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s past last spring during an â&#x20AC;&#x153;urgentâ&#x20AC;? dig pending the construction of a new visitors center south of Fisk Hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were doing something that was really relevant because of the construction that was happening,â&#x20AC;? Weinberg senior Eric Johnsonsaid. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was like rescue archaeology in a way, which made it more meaningful.â&#x20AC;? About 10 students excavated two small sites near the boathouse to further understand student life at NU and find physical evidence of a turn-ofthe-century â&#x20AC;&#x153;lifesaving club,â&#x20AC;? a group that would rescue victims of shipwrecks in Lake Michigan. The students learned of the club after watching a documentary found in the University Archives. Johnson compared the prestige of members of the lifesaving club to that of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s athletes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really have a football team at the time or athletic activities,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The lifesaving station was that equivalent. If you were a student and part of the lifesaving crew, you were identified as a big man on campus.â&#x20AC;? Johnson and his classmates discovered a pipe

that may have been a part of the house along with ceramic that could have been part of a tea saucer. Hauser said they also found students may have consumed alcohol at the lifesaving club during Prohibition in Evanston. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They worked there, they possibly lived there, they socialized there,â&#x20AC;? Hauser said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Evanston was a dry town, yet there might be some activities that students enjoy today (that went) on within this lifesaving agency.â&#x20AC;? Students also found that the figurative divide between North Campus and South Campus may have been physical in the 19th century. They discovered accounts of a stream, formerly located just south of Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What you have here is a little stream that signified a boundary between the Northwestern universities, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s somewhere between where North and South Campus meet today,â&#x20AC;? Hauser said. Hauser said the dig benefited NU by affording students hands-on experience and providing more insight into the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s past. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It helps us understand how young men and women, students, built a community and built a life,â&#x20AC;? Hauser said.

have before,” Lagunas said. “I think we have the opportunity and definitely the ability to win more games, and that’s what we plan on doing this season.” One reason NU has been able to play at a higher level than in the past is that team members are playing much more cohesively. “It’s not just one position standing out,” Lagunas said. “It’s all of us standing out as a unit this year.” Still, the Cats are frustrated with their number of wins so far this season. “We’ve outplayed a lot of teams that we lost to and it just doesn’t make sense to us,” sophomore forward Sami Schrakamp said. Moynihan said NU is struggling to figure out why it has nothing to show for its vast improvement. “That’s what’s really difficult, to go away from a game feeling like you outperformed the other team in nearly every facet, but they have the goals to show for it,” he said. “I know our team isn’t happy with the result.” Perhaps the Cats’ past seasons and slow start will prove to be unexpected blessings as conference opponents underestimate their level of play. “A lot of teams are taking us for granted,” Lagunas said. “It’s good to have that underdog state of mind.”

Huth paces Cats’ start By john paschall

Despite solid performances from Northwestern’s young core so far this season, the youth movement is not in full effect just yet. Led by senior Audrey Huth, the Wildcats have found success early in the This weekend season. With better contribution from we’re looking less experienced runners, NU can build to compete, do our thing, and on a strong early season. see how far we The Cats are now can take it. ranked fifth in the the USTFCCCAAudrey Huth, Midwest regional senior rankingsand look to carry that momentum into both of their races this weekend. First, NU travels to South Bend, Ind.for the Notre Dame Invitational on Friday. The next day, they will run in the Sean Earl Loyola Lakefront Invitational.

From page 12

The Cats will face off against the nation’s elite talent, as four top 25 teams join NU in South Bend. Big Ten rivals Illinois and Ohio State are also among the strong pack of competitors. “This weekend we are looking to compete, do our thing, and see how far we can take it,” Huth said. “One of our team goals is to break into the top ten.” While Huth posted tremendous times to start off her senior campaign, she still feels she has not reached her absolute best running shape. “It’s that point in the season still where it’s okay to feel a little rough,” Huth said. “I do believe I am training hard and am on my way to feeling at my best for when we get to our championship meets in the weeks to come.” Coach April Likhite said Huth can handle the pressure of being NU’s top runner in every meet. “She’s extremely driven and determined, pretty much to the point where she’s rarely satisfied,” Likhite said. “I believe that’s what makes Audrey such a tremendous competitor. She has tremendous goals for herself and I have no doubt she’s capable of achieving them.”

Holthus has recorded 207 kills to go with a .240 hitting percentage in 13 games. The Cats now have to go on the road for the first time in conference play. Chan said leaving Evanston for a few days might help his players focus on volleyball. “Getting away gets rid of some of the distractions you have,” he said. On top of limiting errors and instilling confidence in his players, Chan is expecting veteran players Chin, Holthus and sophomore middle blocker Katie Dutchman to have big matches this weekend. This is especially important in the Purdue match, as the Boilermakers took down No. 24 Michigan State (13-2, 1-2) and Michigan (13-3, 1-1) in five sets in both matches to move up from their No. 17 position entering the weekend. The Cats will also have to look out for Purdue’s redshirt junior libero Carly Cramer and freshman outside hitter Annie Drews, who respectively earned Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week and Big Ten Freshman of the Week accolades last weekend. Despite these obstacles, the Cats have set their expectations high for this weekend’s matches. “We put our goals on the board as a team every week, and our first goal this week is 2-0 (winning two matches),” Holthus said.

Cats look to rebound from mid-week loss NU hopes to improve to 2-0 in Big Ten after first loss of the season

Familiar Script Joey Calistri and NU hope the team can recreate last season. The Cats bounced back from a 4-0 DePaul loss to win the Big Ten.

A loss to DePaul may be the best thing to happen to No. 18 Northwestern this season. After starting the season with an eight-game winning streak, the Wildcats fell to the Blue Demons on Wednesday night. Last season, when NU fell to DePaul, also in the ninth game of the season, the Cats would not lose again until the NCAA tournament. “I told (the players) the same thing I told them last year after they lost 4-0,” coach Tim Lenahan said. “How your season goes will be determined by the next nine games, not necessarily the first nine games.” Now, the team shifts its focus back to conference play, with a matchup with Michigan State (3-5-1) looming on Sunday.The Cats are 1-0 in conference play so far, dropping Michigan 2-0 last week. For NU to continue its success within the conference after winning the Big Ten last season, it must regain the form it had prior to the DePaul game. “We have to refocus and

It’s all about what you do at the end of the season.” The Spartans enter the game under .500, struggling at home so far with a 1-3-1 record. The game against

NU will wrap up a three-game home stand for Michigan State, who split the first two, losing to Marquette in overtime but toppling Western Michigan. The Cats should still be able to count on their defense when they travel to East Lansing. Aside from one blatant miscue that led to DePaul’s second goal, the defense played well against the Blue Demons. Last season, NU and Michigan State clawed and scratched to a 1-1 tie in Evanston. The Cats dominated the game on the offensive end, with a 14-3 advantage in shots, as well as a 10-1 advantage in corner kicks. But the Cats could not pull away from a team that was then 1-5-1, indicating that the matchup between the two squads could be much closer than each team’s record indicates. Ultimately, NU believes it can return to its winning ways if it harnesses the energy and focus it played with for the first month of the season. “I really want to see us bounce back,” Miller said. “I think we can bring energy and hopefully we can get going again.”

With a crucial weekend coming up, the Wildcats hope to embrace their underdog status and obtain their first Big Ten win of the season — a victory that would increase their chances of sneaking into the conference tournament. With losses to Penn State, Ohio State and Nebraska, Northwestern sits at 4-5-2 overall and 0-3 in the Big Ten.The Cats head to Purdue (6-4-1, 1-2 Big Ten) and Indiana (5-5-1, 0-3) this weekend to face off against two other teams in the bottom half of the conference. “This is a massive weekend for us,” coach Michael Moynihan said.“We are 0-3 right now in the Big Ten and we’ve tasted a bit of success this season before the conference season started. We need to get back to that.” Though the feat of sweeping the weekend seems more difficult on the road, NU has a 2-1-1 away record this year. The Wildcats have scored seven goals in five games away from Lakeside Field, as compared to only eight goals in seven games at home. Goal production has been an issue

for the Cats in conference play so far, as they have mustered only one goal in the three losses. “Every team has trouble scoring. It’s a tough thing to do,” Moynihan said. “In all honesty, I’m more concerned about the goals we’re giving up. We’re giving up goals that are very soft.

With seven of the conference’s 12 teams ranked in the top 25 of the AVCA Coaches Poll and a Michigan team not far behind in 29th, navigating through a season of Big Ten conference play would challenge any team.

For the players, simply focusing on playing smart volleyball is the key to winning on the road. “We have to know when is a good time to take what swings,” junior outside hitter Stephanie Holthus said.
