‘Drain the swamp’ Trump encourages state republicans to vote for Mike Braun in the November election in Elkhart, Indiana, Thursday night. By Carley Lanich clanich@iu.edu | @carleylanich

ELKHART, Ind. — In a speech that functioned more as a victory lap for the current administration than as the expected, typical campaign stop, President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence spoke Thursday night in the North Side Middle School gymnasium in support of Indiana’s U.S. Senate hopeful Mike Braun. Braun was an unexpected winner in Indiana’s Tuesday primaries, beating out Republican opponents Luke Messer and Todd Rokita. However, Trump was the main event, his speech covering routine talking points from his campaign days, brags of recent successes and more. “We’re finally rebuilding our country,” Trump said. “We’re fighting and we’re finally putting America first.” Hours before the event, Trump supporters wrapped around the streets neighboring North Side Gymnasium, one of the state’s largest middle school gyms, with seating for more than 7,000. Supporters wearing ‘Fake News Network’ T-shirts and holding signs

reading ‘Stormy, Keep Your Private Parts PRIVATE,’ and even one carrying a stuffed Pepe the Frog toy, filtered into the gym three hours before the president was slated to speak. “What do you like that the president has done?” a reporter asked a supporter outside the event. “Returned confidence,” the woman replied.

“We’re finally rebuilding our country. We’re fighting and we’re finally putting America first.” Donald Trump, President

In stark contrast to Trump’s days on the campaign trail, there was little anti-Trump sentiment expressed from those inside the gym. Supporters were told protesters were given a dedicated space outside the school. The voice of a cheery woman broadcast within the gym before the speakers took the stage warned supporters not to touch protesters

if they somehow made it inside. “Trump supports the First Amendment as much as he supports the Second Amendment,” the voice chirped among cheers. If you see a protester, it said, “hold your sign above your head and shout, ‘Trump, Trump, Trump.’” The physically violent air carried in Trump’s run during the primaries — marked by threats, pepper spray, and Trump’s own encouragements to “knock the hell out of” protesters — seemed to have lifted, but the misinformation and verbal attacks still came easy to some. “I honestly don’t know how that lady got the popular vote,” one Trump supporter said of Hillary Clinton. “She didn’t,” another said. “She stole. She stole six states.” “They got busloads of illegals,” the man added, “And told them what name to vote under and to vote Democrat, and they paid them.” The planned rally was scheduled last week first for South Bend, Indiana, but was moved to Elkhart to “accommodate more Hoosiers.” Indiana carries a storied history for the president. The state’s voters played a key role in Trump’s Re-

publican Party nomination. He has routinely touted jobs saved at the Indianapolis-based air-conditioning manufacturer, Carrier, despite the plant’s recent wave of layoffs. The vice president’s record when serving as Indiana governor also helped secure the conservative vote in the 2016 general election. Since inauguration, Trump visited the state once in a September rally drumming up support against Senate incumbent Joe Donnelly, D-Indiana. The president left Hoosiers with a memorable promise to “campaign against him like you won’t believe,” in the upcoming midterm elections if Donnelly refused to support the recent Republican tax overhaul. Donnelly, the incumbent candidate for one of Indiana’s two senate seats, voted against the overhaul in December. Pence introduced Trump on Thursday, speaking shortly and reSEE TRUMP, PAGE 3

Father John Misty performs solo show

Lori Reesor, the vice provost for student affairs and dean of students, is leaving IU to take a new position at University of Wisconsin–Madison, which begins July 1. Reesor has a doctoral degree from the University of Kansas, a master’s degree from Iowa State University and a bachelor’s degree in business from the University of Wisconsin–Whitewater. She took her current position at IU in 2016 after leaving the University of North Dakota, where she was the vice president for student affairs. Reesor has more than 30 years experience with student affairs at various universities, including the University of Kansas and Wichita State University. Reesor was one of three finalists for the position of UW–Madison vice chancellor for student affairs, according to a press release from UW–Madison. The other finalists were Anna Gonzalez, dean of students and chief student affairs officer at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon, and Julie PayneKirchmeier, an associate vice president and chief of staff for student affairs at Northwestern University. “We were looking for someone with a long-term strategic vision on how we best serve students during their time on campus,” UW–Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank said in a press release. “Lori impressed us all with her experience and thoughtful comments. I expect her to connect equally well with students and our employees.” Chuck Carney, IU’s director of media relations, said there are discussions going on within the University about how to fill Reesor’s position, but few specifics are availble. “Obviously, we want someone who can continue that relationship with students that Lori had,” Carney said. “She was a trusted figure to them.”

IU softball loses to Minnesota Saturday By Phillip Steinmetz psteinme@iu.edu | @PhillipHoosier

Father John Misty goes for grandeur in many aspects of his music — highly detailed lyrics, liner notes the length of a novel and animated cartoons for an entire album — but his solo, acoustic performance Friday night at Upland Brewing Co. showed an entirely different side to him and his music. The intimate performance by the singer-songwriter, whose real name is Joshua Tillman, at Upland’s outdoor amphitheater was the headlining musical act for Granfalloon: A Kurt Vonnegut Convergence. The show was also Tillman’s first stop on his world tour, and the only scheduled solo show on the tour, to promote his upcoming album “God’s Favorite Customer”. Tillman sang songs from all three of his previous albums, as well as new singles from the upcoming album, set to release June 1. He was chosen for the Vonnegut festival because he is a noted fan of the Hoosier author, and his songwriting shares Vonnegut’s satirical style and critical perspective on the world. “They both write about how dumb and stupid the world is because they think we could do better,” said Joe Hiland, communications specialist for festival organizers the Arts and Humanities Council. “We could do better people.” He stood glowing ethereally in the colored lights against the darkness of the sky, its softness in complete opposition to the nihilism dripping from his lyrics and biting comments to the crowd. Tillman told the audience his favorite Vonnegut novel is “Slapstick,” even after making fun of people whose favorite Vonnegut novel is “Slapstick.”

EMILY ECKELBARGER | IDS

Father John Misty performs Friday evening at Upland Brewing Co. as part of Granfalloon: A Kurt Vonnegut Convergence. The festival was a celebration of the life and works of Kurt Vonnegut.

“A story equally sad and stupid,” Tillman said after finishing his new single “Mr. Tillman” and before launching into “Total Entertainment Forever.” “One of my favorite Vonnegut traits.” In between songs he told stories of his stint as a drummer for a Christian hardcore band, and of his relationship with Damien Jurado, a singer-songwriter from Seattle, who played the stage before Tillman. Jurado is currently signed to Bloomington label Secretly Canadian. Bloomington is where the two are reuniting after almost a decade apart, Jurado said. Tillman credited Jurado for being the reason he was performing at all. A young Tillman drove all the way from Maryland to Seattle to meet Jurado and give him his CD, leading

to an extensive touring relationship between the two, Jurado said. During his early evening set, Jurado told the crowd about being there for Tillman’s first time smoking marijuana and getting his first tattoo. Tillman gave him a dramatic, ironic thumbs-up from the back of the crowd with each embarrassing tidbit Jurado shared about Tillman. “It’s like I’m giving you a wake, Josh,” Jurado said as he recounted their history and spoke his praises of Tillman. “There isn’t another songwriter of our time that writes like that.” The crowd seemed to be deeply listening to Tillman’s words as he sang, hushing others in the crowd who spoke during the songs. Tillman, like Vonnegut, often portrays scenarios of the apocalypse and deterioration of humanity.

“Father John Misty, he shares the same tragic common vision and black humor that is Vonnegut’s trademark,” said festival organizer Ed Comentale, director of the Arts and Humanities Council. “I think that ultimately, Kurt Vonnegut and Father John Misty are really humane and really sympathetic people, but they filter that through a real acerbic wit. They couch their sympathy and their sentimentalism in a darkness.” “Who will critique them once he’s left?” Tillman sang, perhaps of himself, in “Ballad of Dying Man.” Tillman commented to the crowd about how depressing it was that in the scope of the universe and all time, hardly anyone will have heard about Father John Misty. Saturday’s music acts included Noname, Waxahatchee and the Oh Sees.

IU and Minnesota only played once Saturday afternoon, but it had the feeling of two completely different games. Minnesota had a 3-0 lead heading into the third inning before a rain delay of about 93 minutes forced both teams into their dugouts. Then, the Hoosiers fought back in the top of the fifth to take a 4-3 lead. The Golden Gophers looked like the back-to-back Big Ten Tournament champions from there on out, scoring six unanswered runs in the bottom of the fifth and sixth to cap off a 9-4 victory in the Big Ten Tournament semifinals in Madison, Wisconsin. “Unfortunately, we weren’t able to make enough plays to finish but I was really proud of this group, being able to fight until the end,” IU Coach Shonda Stanton said. It was all Minnesota early on. In the bottom of the second, junior pitcher Tara Trainer walked three batters to load the bases for Minnesota. Then, the Golden Gophers singled up the middle to take a 2-0 lead. A wild pitch from sophomore pitcher Emily Goodin plated the third Minnesota run. The Hoosiers had an opportunity to respond in the top of the third with two on and only one out, but back-to-back strikeouts kept them without a run. In the top of the fifth, IU found itself in the same situation after sophomore catcher Bella Norton and freshman outfielder Taylor Lambert each picked up SEE SOFTBALL, PAGE 3

‘It’s not magic’ Annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive brings community together By Dominick Jean drjean@indiana.edu | @domino_jean

After 25 previous food drives, the process just starts to make sense, said Liz Feitl, the community service liaison for United Way of Monroe County. What makes the annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive so successful, she said, is the hard work and community connections that have been made over the years. "It's not magic," Feitl said. The annual food drive in Bloomington is managed by Hoosier Hills Food Bank and the National Association of Letter Carriers Branch 828, with sponsors like United Way and Kroger contributing. But it's the volunteers who help each year and keep themselves busy past regular hours that make the project such a success, Feitl said. Volunteers like John Harl, a retired warehouse worker who's been involved in the food drive for four years, and was involved with HHFB before that.

DOMINICK JEAN | IDS

Volunteers unload food at the U.S. Post Office on E. 10th Street on May 12.

For him it's all about the mission, he said. Harl said he's been poor and he knows what it feels like to be unsure of his own situation, and nobody should have to feel that way about food or anything else. "I believe in the basic mission," Harl said. "No one

should be hungry." Harl looked out on the parking lot behind the E. 10th Street post office at around 4 p.m. Saturday afternoon. The work was just starting and he knew it. "It's going to get busier," he said. And moments later, as if summoned by his comment,

another postal truck rolled up and the volunteers got to work unloading the vehicle, inspecting bags and loading them into another truck for delivery to HHFB. Last year, on the 25th anniversary of the food drive, 48,826 pounds of food were donated by Monroe County alone. Over 94,000 pounds were donated in south-central Indiana. "We're hoping to do just a tad bit better," said Joshua Peterson, the president of NALC Branch 828. The goal for Monroe County is 50,000 pounds, and the goal for south-central Indiana is 100,000. Volunteers and organizers all agree: it's possible, especially because of the momentum they've built up over the years. Feitl said not only is this one of the largest single-day food drives nationally, but it also provides a huge diversity of food for families and kids that need food help over the summer months. Everything from canned chicken breast to sliced peach-

es comes in during the food drive. It would be easy, Feitl said, to ask for money and buy a load of beans or something similar, but that wouldn't be the best solution. "Not everyone wants to eat just green beans," Feitl said. But more amazing than the amount of food is the support from the community, media and different organizations, she said, especially in a country that is often divided by politics. But none of that matters during the food drive. "There is no partisanship here," Feitl said. As of Saturday evening, 38,000 pounds of food were collected by U.S. postal workers and volunteers with more to come. While the largest part of the food collection occurred Saturday, Peterson explained that residents can leave food out until about midweek and have it picked up, and U.S. post offices will be accepting donations until Friday, May 18.

Foreign ambassadors visit IU, look for global solutions By Dominick Jean drjean@indiana.edu | @domino_jean

Thirty different foreign ambassadors, representing countries scattered across four continents, spent last Monday at IU where they spoke with IU leaders about both local and global problems that people, universities and nations can help solve. The event was a part of “Experience America,” a program run by the U.S. Department of State. According to an IU press release, Ambassador Sean P. Lawler, chief of protocol of the U.S., led the ambassadors on a tour of Bloomington and the University. IU President Michael McRobbie met with the ambassadors and told them IU “fully embraces” a spirit of international understanding and cooperation, according to the release. "Though your visit is brief, I know it will do much to help strengthen the spirit of international understanding, cooperation and friendship

between Indiana, the United States and your countries," McRobbie said in the release. McRobbie emphasized that among the 21,000 students who graduated from IU this year, 2,100 were international students from more than 136 countries, and IU teaches more than 70 different foreign languages — more than any other U.S. university. But even with 30 ambassadors from around the world, McRobbie and Vice Provost Lauren Robel were quick to point out IU’s local contributions and collaborations, such as the Center for Rural Engagement and IU Corps. The Center for Rural Engagement is a new initiative at IU to make use of research and skill sets available at the University to support communities in nearby counties. The effort so far involves 550 students in 20 courses from different IU schools and departments. Among those counties are: Owen County, Greene

County, Monroe County, Brown County, Lawrence County, Washington County, Orange County, Crawford County, Dubois County, Martin County and Daviess County. Researchers and students are working in concert to create sustainable food systems, encourage diversity and entrepreneurship, and maintain the special characteristics that make local communities in southern Indiana special. "There are a very small number of universities that I have been able to find that are thinking comprehensively about engaging their university's research and teaching mission with communities around them," Robel said in the release. According to the release, the issues facing rural Indiana are not different from those faced by people from around the globe. Solving issues at home can contribute to global solutions. Daniel Mulhall, Ireland’s ambassador to the U.S., said

around the world with similar interests who might be able to share knowledge and interests with you," Mulhall said. According to the release, the ambassadors' visit con-

IU, Purdue to require additional meningitis vaccinations By Dominick Jean drjean@indiana.edu | @domino_jean

Starting next fall both IU and Purdue University will be among the universities requiring incoming students on all campuses to have the meningitis B vaccination. The new requirement comes into effect after the Indiana General Assembly passed a law in 2017 requiring all universities that have residential living to include the meningitis immuniza-

tion in their vaccination standards. Meningitis is an infection of the lining of the brain and the spinal cord, and can also involve blood infections, according to the Centers for Disease Control. According to a press release from the Indiana Immunization Coalition — an Indianapolis-based organization dedicated to reducing the spread of vaccinepreventable diseases — 70 percent of meningitis cases

in Indiana are caused by meningitis B. “It is great to see some of the biggest universities in our state lead the way in protecting the health of our young people,” said Lisa Robertson, executive director of the Indiana Immunization Coalition, in a press release. “It is my hope that other universities, big and small, across the state and the country will soon follow suit and require both meningi-

tis vaccines. These diseases can be deadly,” according to the press release. The CDC also reports that meningococcal diseases kill 10 to 15 infected people out of 100. Of those who survive, another 10 to 20 percent suffer severe disabilities. Some disabilities and health issues include: hearing loss, brain damage, kidney damage, amputations or severe scars from skin grafts.

cluded with a stop at the School of Global and International Studies, where they met the dean, former U.S. Ambassador to Poland Lee Feinstein, and former U.S. Rep. Lee Hamilton.

He took the stage listing a few of the Trump administration’s recent accomplishments — the promise of a new embassy soon to be established in Jerusalem, America’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal and the safe return of three American hostages kept in North Korea. “How about the action this week?” Pence asked an electrified crowd. “None of this would’ve been possible without the strong, clear, resolute leadership of Donald Trump.” But, Pence quickly got to the point, telling his Hoosier base Indiana deserves better than Donnelly. Trump came out echoing the vice president, calling Donnelly the least effective lawmaker in the Senate. “This November Indiana

will face a really important choice,” Trump told supporters. “You can send a really incredible swamp person to the Senate, like Joe Donnelly, or you can send us Republicans like Mike Braun to drain the swamp.” Yet, Trump weaved on and off topic, touting low unemployment rates, especially those of Elkhart County, and his ability to make deals, both foreign and domestic. He, at times, claimed his administration was working to “Make America Great Again,” while also promoting a new slogan, “Keep America Great.” He took multiple jabs at the “fake news media,” praised progress on the border wall and took credit for shop owners he claimed were once again saying the words “Merry Christmas.” Before closing, Trump invited Braun to the stage,

taking another swipe at “Sleepin’ Joe,” as the president called the senator. “You can count on me to be a true reinforcement,” Braun told the crowd. “And the guy who’s going to retire Joe Donnelly.” Donnelly released a statement shortly after the rally, saying he works first for Hoosiers, not a president or political party. “It’s OK that the President and Vice President are here today for politics,” the statement read. “But problems only get solved when you roll up your sleeves and put in the hard work.” Trump closed his speech Thursday night telling Hoosiers he’d actually delivered more than he’d promised as president, but their support was needed to elect Republicans and effectively “drain the swamp.” “With your vote, we’ll win,” Trump said before

After the rain delay, the Hoosiers picked things up where they left off as sophomore outfielder Gabbi Jenkins singled to load the bases with one out. “We couldn’t have been in a better position when we went back out onto the field,” Jenkins said. Senior infielder Taylor Uden and freshman designated player Maddie Westmoreland were both walked to make it only a 3-2 Minnesota lead. Then, freshman infielder Katie Lacefield doubled down the left field line to give the Hoosiers their first lead of the afternoon. “I was pleased with how we fought back, that’s what this group has done all season long,” Stanton said.

TRACK AND FIELD

BOBBY GODDIN | IDS

Senior Nycia Ford competes in the hammer throw during the Big Ten Outdoor Track and Field Championships Friday at IU’s Robert C. Haugh Track and Field Complex. Ford finished second in the event with a personal-best throw of 64.19 meters.

Nycia Ford throws for her family By Murphy Wheeler jonmwhee@iu.edu | @murph_wheelerIU

There were a lot of people wanting a picture with IU junior hammer thrower Nycia Ford Friday. First, there was a group picture, then a quick selfie or two. Then, there was a stream of photos with various friend and family members, including her sisters. Each time, a different person took the picture with somebody else’s cell phone. Each time, Ford had the same excited smile on her face. She had just finished in second place in the women’s hammer throw competition at the Big Ten Outdoor Track and Field Championships after throwing a personal record throw of 64.19 meters on her sixth and final throw. As Ford was swarmed by the number of people waiting to congratulate her, it was fitting that her sisters, throwers at the middle-school level themselves, were among the group. After all, Ford said everything she does in the hammer throw circle is about leading by example and teaching her sisters lessons. “They’re my biggest inspiration,” Ford said. “I want them to see me not only come out on top or overcome the obstacles I’ve been through, I want them to see me struggle to get there. This wasn’t something that was just handed to me. It was something I had to work for. It didn’t just take a matter of days, or weeks, or months, it took years to get here.” Ford had to overcome her fair share of obstacles Friday.

She only needed one throw to cement her spot in second, as she hurled the hammer 63.03 meters on her first attempt, just shy of her previous personal record of 63.30 meters. However, a string of three foul throws in a row left things up in the air, especially with a trio of Minnesota throwers looming on the sidelines. The Golden Gophers’ threesome of junior Temi Ogunrinde, senior Agnes Esser and junior Nayoka Clunis, finished first, third and fourth overall in the event. As Ford endured the three foul throws, Minnesota’s throwers continued to consistently throw more than 60 meters, while cheering, highfiving and even dancing their way through the competition.

“Honestly, it didn’t feel better than my first throw. I just did exactly what my coach told me to do.” Nycia Ford, junior hammer thrower

Meanwhile, Ford stayed calm. She kept her body loose by constantly moving and only paying attention to the words of IU throwing coach Cory Martin. “He knows how to communicate to me as an athlete,” Ford said. “He keeps it simple because he knows when he tries to pinpoint little things here or there, I start to overthink. He just tells me to stay aggressive because he knows I’m the type of athlete that if I just keep my head in and keep driving and pushing, everything is going to work

out exactly how it’s supposed to.” Even when Esser and Clunis’ final throws didn’t surpass Ford’s first throw, securing second place, Ford managed to do even better on her final toss. Even though her mark of 64.19 meters wasn’t enough to catch Ogunrinde’s first-place throw of 66.97, it was still by far a personal record for Ford. “Honestly, it didn’t feel better than my first throw,” Ford said. “I just did exactly what my coach told me to do. Even when I feel like my technique isn’t lining up like I want it to, as long as I keep staying aggressive like coach always keeps telling me, something positive always comes out of it.” Ford’s big day was the kind of start IU Coach Ron Helmer was looking for. He said during the three-day slog of an event like the conference championships, gaining early momentum is key. “She comes in seeded fourth, throws a PR and ends up second,” Helmer said. “Those are the kind of forward steps we absolutely need people to take and expect them to take if they come in here ready to compete.” The second-place finish means Ford will advance to the NCAA prelims in Tampa, Florida, on May 24. It’ll be another opportunity for Ford to do her sisters proud. “Even after throwing that 63 at the beginning and then just fouling and fouling, in the end I still pulled something out,” Ford said. “I just wanted that to be an example to my sisters. Even when you feel like you’re not going to get there, if you keep pushing, it’s going to come and that’s what happened today.”

Jumpers exceed expectations at Big Ten Championships By Murphy Wheeler jonmwhee@iu.edu @murph_wheelerIU

Juniors Treyton Harris and Aaliyah Armstead lined up next to each other, sideby-side. Everything was quiet around them, until Harris broke the silence. Clap. Clap. Harris, clapping his hands, looked toward the crowd sitting in the bleachers at the Robert C. Haugh Track and Field Complex in Bloomington. “Come on Indiana,” he yelled. The claps got faster and multiplied by the second. The crowd rallied around them. Clap. Clap. Clap. “We need some energy,” Harris shouted. Clap, clap, clap, clap. Then, the two took off sprinting down the straight, eventually hurling themselves toward their respective long jump pits. The crowd was bringing the energy around them. “I usually never start clapping,” Armstead said. “I never have the confidence to get it started.” It was the support from the home crowd Harris and Armstead needed during the men’s and women’s

long jump competitions at the Big Ten Outdoor Track and Field Championships on Saturday. Both would go on to finish third overall and pick up important points for the Hoosiers on day two of the competition. “I knew if I got the crowd going, it would help me do better,” Harris said. “It ended up making my teammates do better too.”

“I wasn’t sure what was going to happen because I was pretty tired heading into my fourth jump. My coach actually had to move me up because I wasn’t on the board during my run through.” Aaliyah Armstead, junior

The crowd was a big part in the two exceeding expectations Saturday. Harris came into the championships ranked fifth in the Big Ten, while Armstead was even lower, seeded sixth. However, Armstead said the low rankings helped them go under the radar against the rest of the field. “I actually like com-

ing in being ranked lower,” Armstead said. “It takes the pressure off and you’re able to improve on that ranking easier.” For Armstead, she didn’t make much noise in the trials. Her first three jumps were all around 6.1 meters and she qualified for finals at seventh overall. However, on her first attempt of the finals, she exploded with a jump of 6.30 meters. It was a personal record for her and enough to solidify her third-place spot over the course of the final two jumps. “I wasn’t sure what was going to happen because I was pretty tired heading into my fourth jump,” Armstead said. “My coach actually had to move me up because I wasn’t on the board during my run through. Once I moved up, he told me to just go after it and see what happens.” On the men’s side, after fouling on his first attempt of trials, Harris stayed consistent throughout the competition. He cemented his third place spot on his third jump of the day with a mark of 7.50 meters. He then one-upped himself on his next attempt, soaring 7.54 meters into the sandpit. “I just got my footing down and got my run throughs together,” Harris

said. “I’m not too upset with third because I came in and scored more points than expected and helped put my team in a good position to win Big Tens.” Harris and Armstead both said having each other competing alongside them was a huge motivation booster during the event. As the men’s and women’s competitions commenced simultaneously side-byside, Harris and Armstead

had each other, along with sophomore Leah Moran who qualified for finals and finished ninth overall, for extra support on the sidelines. “We pretty much just kept saying the same things that we say at practice,” Harris said. “We just kept telling each other to get your knees up and make sure you hit the board. It wasn’t anything different. We were just being there for each other.” Without Armstead, Har-

ris wouldn’t have had an extra coach helping him along. As for Armstead, she wouldn’t have had a hype man to get the Bloomington crowd pumped up without Harris. “When he started to clap while we were going at the same time, it helped a lot,” Armstead said. “Having people yelling your name really helps. The home crowd was a huge advantage.”

Vonnegut’s work celebrated with activities By Clark Gudas ckgudas@iu.edu | @This_isnt_Clark

A giant tombstone sat outside City Hall on Saturday morning. The name inscribed on it was “Somebody.” Below it was the epitaph: “He Tried.” A series of booths, panels and lectures highlighted the wacky, turbulent life of author Kurt Vonnegut on the last day of the three-day literary festival “Granfalloon: A Kurt Vonnegut Convergence.” The “Cook Like Vonnegut” booth featured samples of food inspired by the author. The creations included “Salad of Titan,” “Schlachthof Schnitzel” and “Von-nougat’s Balls.” “Write Like Vonnegut” let visitors take home notebooks after writing a sentence in the style of Vonnegut. Tips to write like the author included “say you’re the narrator” and “joke about death.” The Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library booth sold merchandise, including a signed screen print of the bomb in “Goodbye Blue Monday.” Other booths included “Draw Like Vonnegut” and a board game Vonnegut created in 1956, titled “General Headquarters.” Vonnegut created the chess-like game during a time of financial struggles. “We’ve made the first ever production of the board game,” Arts & Humanities Council intern Lucy Battersby said. “That’s mostly because it’s horribly complicated.” The panels at the Lilly Library and City Hall took different perspectives on Vonnegut,

People gather to write on a prop tombstone as part of Granfalloon: A Kurt Vonnegut Convergence Saturday, May 12, at City Hall. The festival featured musical guests as well as panels to discuss Vonnegut’s works.

with titles such as “Vonnegut the Scientist.” Aaron Jaffe, English professor at Florida State University, spoke about Vonnegut’s lecture on the shape of stories, which arose from Vonnegut’s failed MFA thesis at the University of Chicago. Jaffe said half of the thesis is a reproduction of a short story by writer D.H. Lawrence.

“Vonnegut said his graphs don’t grasp one one-thousandth of the master strokes of D.H. Lawrence,” Jaffe said. During the panel “Vonnegut the American,” Assistant Librarian Isabel Planton showed drafts of “Slaughterhouse-Five” from the Lilly Library’s Vonnegut collection. She also showed two of his papers, “I Shall Not Want” and “Psychology

of Hunger,” both of which contain elements of his life as a prisoner of war following the firebombing of Dresden, Germany. She said Vonnegut would pretend to be a waiter for the other prisoners of war and take their order. The prisoners obsessed over a particular food fantasy: six pancakes with raisins in the batter, with eggs between

each two pancakes, a quarter pound of butter on top, all drenched in honey. Planton also said Vonnegut had no interest in eating this once he returned to the United States. Lawyer Eric R. Waldkoetter spoke on the 18 months after Vonnegut first joined the army. During that time, his mother died, he went to war, he fought at the Battle

of the Bulge, he was taken as a prisoner of war by Germans and he survived the Dresden firebombing. During this time, Vonnegut met soldier Joe Crone. Waldkoetter said Crone was awkward, innocent and confused, and would become the inspiration for the protagonist in “Slaughterhouse-Five.” When Vonnegut wrote about his experience of World War II in “Slaughterhouse-Five,” the topics of firebombing, war and death were familiar to his 1960’sera audience. “‘Slaughterhouse-Five’ was as pertinent to Vietnam as it was to World War II,” Waldkoetter said. Other panels, such as “Vonnegut the Writer,” offered different views on the author. Archivist Tassie Gniady analyzed Vonnegut and Ray Bradbury’s works with librarian archiving software. She presented a graph that showed the frequency of the words “war,” “soldier” and “nation” in their novels. “I was really interested in how they consider the individual against the nation,” Gniady said. The term “war” makes up 4 percent of the words in some of Vonnegut’s books, such as “Mother Night” and “Slaughterhouse-Five.” “War dominates what he’s doing,” Gniady said. “Vonnegut can’t ever get away from himself and his experiences.”

Vonnegut film reveals lifetime of laughter, death and struggles idea death is inevitable and merely a part of the human experience. In the documentary, Vonnegut recounted the death of friends from his past. A friend in the army died from disease in training camp. Another friend from his college fraternity died after hitting his head against a faucet. After each anecdote, Vonnegut let out wheezing, jovial laughter. “The darkest things would make him laugh,” Weide said to the audience at the IU Cinema screening. “He was a hearty laughter. He loved humor.” Even when the documentary showed Vonnegut recounting his deceased siblings and parents at their old Indianapolis home, he withheld tears and anguish. “It doesn’t make me sad at all,” Vonnegut said. “It was a very happy time in the lives of these people.” When the Great Depression occurred and Vonnegut’s family lost its home, the family struggled financially and emotionally.

Filmmaker Robert B. Weide’s documentary “Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck in Time” looks at the life of Indianaborn author Kurt Vonnegut. In one moment, the film focuses on an asterisk-shaped illustration in his book “Breakfast of Champions.” “This was the first handdrawn illustration of the author’s asshole,” Weide said in the documentary. On May 10, IU Cinema presented the documentary and a conversation with Weide to a nearly filled theater. The event was the first public event of the three-day literary arts festival, Granfalloon: A Kurt Vonnegut Convergence, which seeks to celebrate the life and work of Vonnegut. Vonnegut is known for a satirical wit, dark humor, science-fiction elements and the perspectives on happiness and fulfillment in his novels. “So it goes,” a phrase from his 1969 novel “Slaughterhouse-Five,” embraces the

morning movies helped the young Vonnegut learn to take life less seriously, according to the documentary. In “Breakfast of Champions,” Vonnegut writes himself in as a character and tells another character, Kilgore Trout, a science-fiction writer who remains in complete obscurity despite his nearly 100 novels, that Trout is a character in a book. Vonnegut once wrote a draft of “Slaughterhouse-Five” where he, as the author, calls the protagonist on the phone and tells him he’s a character in a book. In the documentary, Vonnegut noted a fan once pointed out the recurring character, Trout, was a representation of Vonnegut and his psychological state. Trout’s changes throughout the novels paralleled the author’s challenges with literary success, failure, family and financial situations. In “Breakfast of Champions,” Trout responds to Vonnegut. “Here was what Kilgore

Trout cried out to me in my father’s voice: ‘Make me young, make me young, make me young!’”, Vonnegut wrote in “Breakfast of Champions.” After “SlaughterhouseFive,” Vonnegut was a celebrity who appeared on TV shows and commercials. When a talk show host asked Vonnegut how his life was, he chuckled. “It’s practically over, thank God,” Vonnegut said. For much of his life, Vonnegut was optimistic about America and the American dream, despite his critiques and satire of corporate and political power. Towards the end of his life, he experienced difficulty with his marriage and the political sphere, specifically regarding the invasion of Iraq and George W. Bush’s role in it. The Bush administration was a travesty to Vonnegut, Weide said. “Dear future generations: please accept our apologies,” Vonnegut wrote in a 2006 art piece. “We were roaring drunk on petroleum.” When Weide was doing

research on the Vonnegut collection at the Lilly Library, he came across a piece of Vonnegut’s correspondence. It was a letter written 30 years ago in which the writer asked Vonnegut if he could make a documentary based on the author’s life. It was the very letter Weide wrote before filming commenced in the 1980s. Until Vonnegut’s death in 2007, the two remained close friends. “What nobody prepares

you for is losing your friends,” Weide said. “I remember calling him on 9/11. This was another ‘So it goes’ moment for him.” Through the satire, dark humor and critiques of institutional powers, government and society, Vonnegut maintained a sense of optimism and a search for happiness in society and his work. “This is indeed an adorable universe,” Vonnegut said.

REED ALL ABOUT IT

Childish Gambino calls America out with his new single, ‘This is America.’ The new single represents the gun violence and black oppression that happens in American culture. ILLUSTRATION BY ANNE ANDERSON | IDS

Hannah Reed is a senior in journalism.

Donald Glover, also known as Childish Gambino, is a plethora of things. Glover is an actor, comedian, writer, director, producer, singer, songwriter, rapper and DJ, and he is using his platform to spread awareness about black oppression and gun violence. The last album from Glover, “Awaken, My Love!”, was in December 2016, which was around the same time his show with FX, “Atlanta” was released. Since the release of “Awaken, My Love!” Glover has been relatively quiet on the music scene. That is, until May 5, when he graced the world with both a song and music video for “This Is America.” He tweeted out saying “this is america” with a link on his otherwise empty Twitter, which garnered over 100K retweets and over 250K favorites in just three days.

I think the song on its own is good, but the video, which has more than 100 million views as of May 13 and started a #ThisIsAmerica hashtag on Twitter, is what is truly important. Without watching and understanding the video, you may miss the meaning behind the song. It says one thing loud and clear – America is distracted. When watching the video for the first time, your eyes will naturally follow Glover as he moves through the video dancing erratically and making strange faces. The background doesn’t particularly demand any attention right away, as it’s out of focus for the entirety of the video. The moves and faces are meant to distract you, so during the first watch they’re just doing their job. However, during the second viewing, your eyes will start to recognize the chaos that’s happening behind Glover as he moves, such as the people sprinting

around, cars on fire and police lights going off. There are two shootings that happen in the video – one of a man playing a guitar with a bag over his head and one of a church choir of 10. After each shooting, the guns are neatly placed onto red cloths as Glover walks away. Red is the color of fire and blood and is typically associated with power. Placing the guns on red cloths is deliberate; Glover is showing the power guns contain in America. When the man playing the guitar in the beginning of the video is shot, Glover takes a certain stance. Twitter was quick to notice this mimics that of the blackface character of Jim Crow. The video calls America out for not paying enough attention to the oppression of black people – the shootings of the black people are the most shocking parts of the video and yet, they leave the scene almost immediately – while also bring-

ing awareness to the fact America only cares about violence for a few days before the next trend, or dance move, comes out and we move on. “This a celly / That’s a tool,” Glover says, as the camera pans up to a group of teens recording the chaos that’s happening below them. This seems to be a representation of the fact phones have been the tool used to hold police officers accountable when they shoot or attack black people. Art means nothing without interpretation, and everyone is allowed to interpret Glover’s new video in his or her own way. However, it’s important to recognize that it goes much deeper than just a song or a music video. Every move by Glover, along with the chaos happening behind him, is calculated – it’s meant to make you think and it’s meant to be watched more than listened to.

This rooftop is filled with its limit of photovoltaic solar panels. California now requires solar panels on new homes.

California's solar energy mandate is beneficial Ethan Smith is a junior in political science and philosophy.

California recently became the first state to require solar panels on new homes. This means every new home built starting in 2020 will be required to be powered by solar energy. This move from the California Energy Commission has the goal of reducing the amount of greenhouse gas emissions. According to the commission, this will be roughly equivalent to removing 115,000 fossil fuel cars off the road. Other states should use California as a model and adopt similar mandates in order to push for a more effective and environmentally

friendly future. A concern from skeptics and prospective buyers will be of the cost of homes after these new additions, this will add an average of roughly $10,000 to each home’s construction, according to the commission. Although this may be true, in the long run these additions will play out in favor of home buyers. Sure, it will increase each buyer’s 30-year mortgage by an estimated $40 per month, but the commission estimates it will save consumers roughly $80 per month on heating, cooling and lighting bills. So, not only would this be economically protective and beneficial, but it may lighten financial burdens for all new home buyers in the state.

The White House has its own concerns. Earlier this year, President Trump announced a whopping 30 percent tariff on imported solar panels, a move that will affect the bottom line of solar companies in the country. This may make the future of using solar energy in homes more expensive. This was due largely in part to the president’s coal initiative. Trump has promised to rebuild the coal industry by rolling back government regulations on the industry and leaving the Paris Climate Agreement. Likewise, the Department of Energy has joined him in searching for coal “power plants of the future.” Mandates like California’s might lower the demand for jobs in the coal industry, but

they will drive forward the demand for work in the solar industry. We must not only look at the consumer benefits from this change, but also the benefits to the solar industry. According to the Department of Energy, California already has the highest rate of solar power jobs per capita in the country and one of the lowest rates of coal power jobs, so the likelihood that there will be a noticeable increase in unemployment is relatively low. However, other states will need to take employment opportunities into consideration when deciding whether to implement similar mandates. In a state like Wyoming, where three percent of work-

ers work in the coal industry, energy commissioners and lawmakers must consider the possibility of job loss. There are easy solutions to these issues. Naturally, there will be a rise in demand for work in the solar industry once the demand for coal lowers, but providing transition training from coal-related jobs to solar jobs could prove to beneficial in all respects. Overall, the initiatives California has taken are not only environmentally beneficial, but are also conscientious of the needs of consumers and producers. This is why other states should look closely at the effects of California’s policy when deciding whether to implement similar mandates.
