Kurt Vonnegut was born Nov. 11, 1922 in Indianapolis. The tenth anniversary of his death is this year.

Kurt Vonnegut’s imaginary university comes to life online with help of Lilly Library collection By Peter Talbot | @petejtalbot

Kurt Vonnegut, witty 20th-century science fiction writer and nativeborn Hoosier, once wrote of a place of learning that existed beyond the boundaries of classrooms, lectures, professors and buildings. “A kind of university — only nobody goes to it,” Vonnegut wrote in "The Sirens of Titan." “There aren't any buildings, isn't any faculty. Everybody's in it and nobody's in it. It's like a cloud that everybody has given a little puff of mist to, and then the cloud does all the heavy thinking for everybody.” Since the spring of 2017, Ed Comentale, director of IUB Arts and Humanities Council, has been working on a project similar to Vonnegut’s fictional university. Professors from nine different disciplines have contributed their thoughts on Vonnegut’s work to the Salo University blog, a website exploring the impor-

tance of his writing. Comentale said that the website is a part of a larger project to celebrate Kurt Vonnegut. “Vonnegut is a very educated man, mostly a self-educated man,” Comentale said. “He had interests in anthropology, interests in science, interests in the history of literature and philosophy, and it was really important for me to get all of those perspectives, get all of those disciplines commenting on the way that he thinks and writes and the stuff he has to say about contemporary society.” Professors who are a part of the project have read through Vonnegut’s novels month by month, starting with "Player Piano" last May and ending with "Slaughterhouse Five" this October. Comentale said that he hopes to continue the readings and blog posts next year, ending with "Timequake." The website also includes objects from the Kurt Vonnegut archive at the Lilly Library. The library’s collection includes many of Vonnegut’s manuscripts, rejection letters and fan mail, as well as his high school report card, doodles and blueprints for a board game he designed. Vonnegut named the game General Headquarters. Comentale said Vonnegut claimed in a letter to the board game company Milton Bradley that Gen-

eral Headquarters would be the third-best game after checkers and chess. He said that while much of Vonnegut’s work was written in the '50s, '60s, '70s and '80s, his books provide a fabulous commentary on the state of American society and culture. “He probably is the greatest author of the Trump era, even though he died before it happened,” Comentale said. “He certainly had a lot to say about today's America in terms of class, in terms of race, of the ways in which different political factions arise and the way they define themselves.” To achieve a better understanding of how Vonnegut’s work is still relevant today, three professors shared how reading Vonnegut’s work provided insight to themselves and to their field of study. History Eric Sandweiss, Carmony professor and chair of the Department of History and adjunct professor of Folklore and Ethnomusicology, said that he didn’t know much about Vonnegut’s work before the project. “I'm always interested in Indiana and Hoosiers and how they conceive of themselves,” Sandweiss said. “Vonnegut was very self-consciously a Hoosier-writer. He thought a lot about Indiana, so I wanted to see more about the development about that strain of work." Sandweiss said that while Vonnegut is not one of his favorite authors and he disagrees with some of what Vonnegut has to say, the project gave him an appreciation of Vonnegut’s craft. “I think that Vonnegut was trying to break down what he saw as kind of the rigidity or linearity of modern science and social science included,” Sandweiss said. "So, I think that he felt that a more imaginative mind could make connections between places and times and eras and individuals that historians were too stodgy for, stuck in their ways, too afraid to do themselves.” Sandweiss placed Vonnegut’s


work in the context of WWII, in which Vonnegut was a soldier. He says that his experience at the Allied bombing of Dresden helped to shape the tragic view of mankind Vonnegut has in many of his novels. “I think there's a very deep cynicism, and the only way he escapes it is not through imagining a utopia or imagining social betterment or getting politically involved or any of that kind of engagement," Sandweiss said. "The only way he imagines escaping from it is turning inward to personal relationships and human decency and you might call it tending one's own garden." In relation to the crises of today’s world, Sandweiss said he thought that Vonnegut would not be surprised by where we are today. Vonnegut was writing at a time when artificial technology was starting up and atomic weaponry had already been developed. “He probably would be yet more cynical and yet darker, and still I think he would find his refuge or his solution in sort of an escape from all of those big institutional evils and a return to the sort of one on one person-hood that he tries to affirm in his books,” Sandweiss said. American Literature, Culture and Feminism Rebekah Sheldon, assistant professor of English, said that she remembered reading some of Vonnegut’s work as a child. “My memory of it is sort of being fascinated by all of these fun images that his work gives us,” Sheldon said. “The sad robot, for example, the human zoo, Kilgore Trout tromping through the creek with his socks being plasticized because of all the pollutants in the water." Sheldon explored the postmodern voice of Vonnegut’s work. SEE VONNEGUT, PAGE 5 Related Content Five ‘new’ Kurt Vonnegut stories are to be published. Read the story at

Voting challenge encourages civic engagement By Katelyn Haas | @khaas96


Devonte Williams receives a kick and fights to get through the Buckeye defense during the Aug. 31 game against Ohio State. IU will play Georgia Southern on Sept. 23.

After week off, IU plays against Georgia Southern on Saturday From IDS reports

IU, 1-1, will play Georgia Southern, 0-2, at 3 p.m. on Saturday at Memorial Stadium in the Hoosiers' second home game. To get an inside look at the Georgia Southern team, the Indiana Daily Student spoke to Thomas Jilk, sports editor of The George-Anne, the student newspaper at Georgia Southern University. Indiana Daily Student: Georgia Southern has gotten off to a poor start this season. Aside from having to play at then-No. 12 Auburn and

a "home game" outside the state of Georgia, what other factors have caused the poor start? Jilk: After Tyson Summers was hired (as head coach) last season, Georgia Southern’s offense wasn’t all option all the time as it had been in the past. The 2016 team went 5-7, drastically below standards, which was partially attributable to the offensive scheme change and the players' not being used to the best of their talents. A perfect example of this is RB Matt Breida, now on the San Francisco , who had just over 600 rushing yards his senior season (Summers’

first season) after rushing for more than 1,600 yards as a junior under Coach Willie Fritz. After backlash from the fans and Athletics Director Tom Kleinlein, Georgia Southern and Summers vowed to return to option football, but it has been a terrible struggle thus far. The same problem of not making the most of talent is manifesting once again. Redshirt freshman quarterback Shai Werts has gained 240 yards on the ground but has carried the ball 54 times and lost 100 yards as well. SEE FOOTBALL, PAGE 5

The Big Ten Conference is not only for sports. This year, the Big Ten universities are joining forces to encourage students to register to vote through an initiative called the Big Ten Voting Challenge. Lisa-Marie Napoli, associate director for the Political and Civic Engagement Program, said after a nationwide student voter engagement initiative last year, Big Ten universities talked about ways to keep the momentum going. The Big Ten Voting Challenge was the answer. “We’re focusing a lot on voter registration efforts because we know sometimes that’s an obstacle for students,” Napoli said. “We want to make sure students understand the voting process and get them registered without problems.” She said the program will work to enhance awareness of engagement on campus and encourage healthy competition and encouragement between Big Ten universities. In 2014, only 21 percent of those under 30 voted in the November midterm elections, the lowest young turnout ever recorded, according to the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement at Tufts University.

The challenge began Sept. 17, Constitution Day. It is a nonpartisan initiative to encourage students to exercise their right to vote, according to a press release. IU-Bloomington Provost and Executive Vice President Lauren Robel said she hoped the challenge would begin a lifetime habit of civic engagement among students. “It’s important for all of our students to learn how to make their voices heard as active members of a community — at home, while they’re here in Bloomington and wherever they go after graduation,” Robel said in the release. The millennials born in the years leading up to and after 2000 are the largest generation in the United States at 83 million people, according to the release. The Big Ten Voting Challenge is designed to increase voter registration by the 2018 midterm elections. Napoli said this will happen in part by working with other college political organizations, including reaching out to the College Republicans and College Democrats. Program leaders will also do tabling on Tuesdays to get students registered as easily as possible, Napoli said. SEE BIG TEN, PAGE 5

Brown Bag Lecture tackles microaggressions By Jaden Amos | @jadenm_amos

Students of color reported an average of 291 microaggressions in the last 90 days at universities nationwide, according to a study by scientific journal Cultural Diversity and Ethnic Minority Psychology. Microaggressions are typically unintentional actions or statements that discriminate against a certain group of people. Graduate student Jonathan Fan said he remembered being in an English literature class and being one of three Chinese students in the course. He said he felt isolated. He remembers other students saying that they did not want to work on a group project with Chinese students because they did not know English. “It made us feel uncomfortable in our class,” Fan said. “The three Chinese students did not just want to be in a group together. We wanted to learn from the American students and work with them. Why do students only want to work with people of their own race? This world is so globalized that we have to work together regardless of race or


Candis Smith, lecturer for the Department of African American and African Diaspora Studies, and Katrina Overby, doctoral candidate in the Media School and Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning, prepare for a discussion on microaggressions.

background.” Fan was one student who shared his experience with microaggressions as an undergraduate at another Big Ten Conference university at this year's first African Ameri-

can and African Diaspora Studies Brown Bag Lecture on microaggressions in the classroom. Professors Joan Middendorf and Candis Smith and graduate student Katrina

Overby organized the event. Smith said the event was put on to teach students and staff how to address and handle microaggressions when they occur. “Microaggressions make

Hoosiers raise funds for Houston By Annie Aguiar @annieinfinitely

Tricolor inflatable slides, live music and free food drew visitors to Dunn Meadow on Wednesday for a fundraiser for Hurricane Harvey relief. The Hoosiers Helping Houston fundraiser, organized by the Union Board, collected clothes, food and money donations, as well as charged $1 to let people have fun on large inflatable slides, obstacle courses and more. “What better way to raise money than to bring some inflatables, have some fun, charge a dollar, run down a slide and get together,” Angel Flowers, a Union Board staff adviser, said. In addition to the event, donation boxes for clothes, school supplies and nonperishable items were placed in the Indiana Memorial Union and various residence halls from Sept. 11-19. All donations will be sent directly to a school board member for the Houston Independent School District later this week. While the Union Board’s events usually take longer to plan, Hoosiers Helping Houston was planned over two weeks. Director of Campus Unity for the Union | @clineands

Campus bicycle thefts on the rise By Christine Fernando


IU graduate and SoundCloud hip-hop and rap artist Rex Avant performs his original tracks at the Hoosiers Helping Houston event Wednesday afternoon at Dunn Meadow. Hoosiers Helping Houston is a fundraising event put on by the Helping Hoosiers organization with proceeds going to the victims of Hurricane Harvey this year.

Board Ceci Jerry, a junior, said the organization wants to shift to more reactionary events instead of its usual long-term ones, and the Hoosiers Helping Houston fundraiser was an example of that. “We want to see things that are currently happening in the world and how we react to them in how we program events," she said. "It was a spur-of-the-moment kind of event. It happened in two weeks, and I’m glad the board wanted us to participate in this way.”

Sophomore Joanna Sheriff, a volunteer for the Hoosiers Helping Houston event, became involved after hearing about the opportunity at an IU NAACP chapter meeting the day before. “I have family in Houston, so I do have family members that were affected,” she said. “I’m just really trying to help out as much as I can on campus.” Drea DeWester, a senior and co-organizer of the event, said that she’s hopeful the event can do a lot of good for the Houston area.

“We wanted to pick a small area we could affect but impact it in a big way,” DeWester said. Jerry said she’s happy to be able to effect change in her role on the Union Board. “What we wanted to do is help people," she said. "We wanted to do that for these kids because ultimately kids are the future, and we want to make sure we have a good impact on them during their formative years. Maybe they’ll do something like this in the future, as well.”

the Economic & Sustainable Development council, appealed to the council to lower the environmental standards as they begin an effort to renovate Dimension Mill, located at 335 W. 11th St. This building is currently being transformed into a tech park, business incubator and cowork space to attract more

startups to Bloomington. The Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Silver Checklist is the standard that the building would typically need to meet to qualify for renovation.

from learning. Like girls in predominately male STEM classes who feel nervous to speak up or fear being looked down on, it makes students say, ‘Can’t I just be a student in the classroom?’” Attendees were given a handout that had examples of microaggressions and ways that students and faculty could address them. Smith, Middendorf and Overby acted out different situations and then had the groups talk about how they would react. After going through the scenarios, both the attendees and event holders said they learned from the event. “I appreciated learning new approaches about these events and how to handle them,” one student said. “After having conversations with people earlier and then coming to this event, it really made me wake up and realize that these words can be so hurtful.” Smith said that she felt that the event was a success and is excited for the other Brown Bag lectures that will be happening every month. Although Smith is hoping for one in October, the next scheduled Brown Bag lecture will be Nov. 15.

Allee Moore weaved a chain lock through the tire and chain of her bike on Aug. 20. She left it in a bike rack 100 yards from her apartment door and went inside. At 10 a.m. the next morning, Moore, an IU alumna and intern for Cru at IU, woke up and walked by the rack while heading for a morning run. The bike was gone. “I was so sad,” she said. “Being stolen from is a really vulnerable feeling because someone just took something that is yours.” Moore said she received the bike, a steel-gray Nishiki Adult Anasazi Hybrid bike with a magenta streak, a month before as a birthday present. She said she had only ridden it twice. IU police received 29 reports of bike thefts in the first three weeks of the semester. Most of the thefts occurred at homes, residence halls and apartments like Moore’s. In response, Tracy James, communications manager for IU Public Safety and Institutional Assurance, wrote a SafeIU blog post to make students more aware of crime news. “Bike thefts are a constant problem on college campuses, so that’s another thing students should be aware of,” she said. Adam Rodkey, manager of Bikesmiths Bicycle Shop in Bloomington, said parents of IU students often ask whether there are many bike thefts at IU. The answer used to be “no,” but that has changed.

“Now when they ask, we tell them, ‘Yeah, it is a problem now, and it’s good to be aware of it,'” he said. Moore's old bike cost a bit more than $400. Now, she has a $300 light silver Diamondback Clarity. When she went to Dick’s Sporting Goods to buy her new bike, Moore met two other people who also had their bikes stolen. When she talks about her stolen bike, she said people tell her about the times they or someone they knew had their own bikes stolen. “It’s definitely an imminent threat in Bloomington,” she said. After her bike was stolen, Moore told her apartment complex’s offices. They didn’t have cameras and couldn’t do anything, she said. She said she also filed a police report online and said no one got back to her. She even combed through Craigslist to see if anyone was trying to sell her bike. She found nothing. If someone steals a bike, James said it’s still important to tell police. “The sooner the police are aware of the theft, the greater the chances of recovering the bike,” she said. Rodkey said people should also report bike thefts to local bike shops because people don’t usually have faith in the police for small crimes like bike thefts. As a result, Rodkey keeps a clipboard with stolen bike descriptions and contact information in case anyone tries to sell a stolen bike to Bikesmiths. “We’re not the police or SEE BICYCLE, PAGE 3

Students offer study abroad advice By Libby Grossman | @libgross

For students looking to travel abroad, it can be difficult to navigate to the experience they want. Students from Sigma Iota Rho, an honor society for international affairs, offered advice in a forum for interested students Wednesday evening in the in the Global and International Studies Building. The panelists shared their experiences and offered tips for students interested in studying abroad. Deciding where and what to study abroad When deciding the where, what and how of studying abroad, panelists agree that faculty members are valuable resources. Senior Samuel Wilson said that reading departmental emails helped direct him towards his study abroad programs in Taiwan and China. Senior Ryan Van Slyke said he did a lot of networking with faculty members and his professors. They helped him decide on his internship in Maastricht, Netherlands, and set up connections with professors for when he arrived. “The connections made here at IU will get you far,� Van Slyke said. Panel members also recommended visiting the Office of Overseas Studies where there is a wall of multicolored papers with information about all the different programs offered and lists of scholarships and financial

Senior panelist Alexandria Schnurpel said that it would be beneficial to save extra money for the trip along with the federal aid or scholarships.

She said it was one of the most liberating experiences of her life. Van Slyke said that students shouldn’t just spend their weekends out drinking or participating in activities they aren’t interested in just because they want to be around other people. Instead, they should visit museums and go to concerts or find experiences that interest them more. “Don’t be afraid to do things by yourself,� Van Slyke said. load of people out there looking out for you,� he said.

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 2 quire 50-59 points on a scale of 110 potential points. This rule is a piece of the Green Building Program, legislation brought to Bloomington in an effort to decrease carbon emissions and other harmful environmental factors. The Bloomington Municipal code says if compliance with this standard would defeat the purpose of the program or place undue burden on the city department, the Common Council can waive these regulations. The Economic & Sustainable Development (ESD) council presented to the city council that their goal in this endeavor is to maximize innovation efforts without constraint. The main argument in appealing for this waiver is that 16 of the points available on the scale will not be possible for the Dimension Mill to earn based strictly on its location. For example, points are available for projects occurring within neighborhood development zones, which the Dimension Mill is not. To be granted this waiver, the ESD needed to prove that it will continue to try and maximize the amount of LEED points possible without being bound by legislation. “I understand LEED isn’t perfect," councilman Chris Sturbaum said. "It has really good ideas and it has really nitpick things you have to do. It really doesn’t value the recycling of an entire building as much as I think is justified. Driving 50 miles to LEED platinum workspace defeats the purpose.� Ellie Symes, CEO of the

Bee Corp, spoke on how any delay in the Dimension Mill project could affect her own company. Symes is a graduate of IU and started the Bee Corp while she was a student there. Her team is currently working on a one-year lease because they can’t afford a longer one, and the Dimension Mill spaces are the only spaces they will be able to rent after this year. The co-founders of the Bloomington-based office space Cowork also spoke on why it’s important that these requirements be waived in this circumstance. “We’re seeing people choose Bloomington over Austin, Portland and Boulder because of its attention to aesthetic,� co-founder Forrest Fowler said. The Cowork team emphasized the necessity of Bloomington to gain more co-working space in order to attract and retain more small businesses. “What I would like is some level of insurance that — specifically regarding energy use — the ESD will seriously look at things like optimizing energy efficiency,� council member Dave Rollo said. Disapproving this resolution would set this project’s timeline back substantially. Fortunately for ESD, Rollo and council member Isabel Piedmont-Smith, both of whom were involved in drafting the Green Building Ordinance legislation in question, are in favor of supporting this waiver. “This is the exact type of project for which we built in the waiver,� Piedmont-Smith said. The council unanimously approved the waiver.

Moore said her new bike has a U-lock. She also keeps the bike inside at night and recorded its serial number.

Veatch ready to lead cross-country in 2017 By Murphy Wheeler @murph_wheelerIU

Winning the IU Open on Sept. 2 gave sophomore Ben Veatch a sensation he hadn’t felt since his days at Carmel High School. After spending his freshman cross-country season at IU in the shadows of now-graduated stars Jason Crist and Matthew Schwartzer, he took advantage of the opportunity to earn his first collegiate victory right away. Now he just wants more. “I want to win the individual Big Ten title and be an All-American,” Veatch said. “I don’t really focus on that because I know as long as I focus on what we’re doing as a team those individual accolades will come.” This season is full of things Veatch hasn’t experienced since high school. With Crist and Schwartzer gone, he’s the leader of the pack for his team once again. With that distinction comes great expectations, not just from the coaches, but from himself as well. Big things have been expected of Veatch since his freshman year. He was unanimously voted Big Ten Freshman of the Year in crosscountry and earned secondteam All-Big Ten honors after an eighth-place finish in the

conference meet. However, Coach Ron Helmer has seen Veatch’s potential since Veatch was in high school. “Ben was running at a pretty elite level in high school so I expected him to come in and help us right away,”

Helmer said. “He competed at a really high level last year and he didn’t disappoint.” Though Veatch's freshman year had its share of triumphs, it was also a year spent as an apprentice under last year’s seniors to get him ready for

the position he is in now. A year running alongside Crist and Schwartzer, who both qualified for the NCAA Championships in 2016, helped Veatch realize what he has to do to sustain his spot as one of the top competitors in

the Big Ten. "I wish they had more eligibility. I would have loved to run with them for a couple more years,” Veatch said. “Coming into last year I had a lot to learn on how to run in a pack and how to relax during

races. They showed me how to do all that and so many little things that I never thought about before as a runner.” Even with the success and experience from last year, Helmer wants more from Veatch. He is looking to tap into even more potential that opponents have yet to see. Improvement from Helmer's top runners could prove to be monumental for his young team this year, and it starts with training. “Ben had never trained at this high of a level,” Helmer said. “That’s been the biggest change for him. A year ago, he might have been running 45 to 50 miles a week. He’s now up to 70 a week.” It’s the team aspect that drives Veatch to get better. Not only was it a first-place finish for Veatch, it was an eyeopening victory for a young IU team which defeated multiple Big Ten opponents and swept the top-four individual spots. “The goal is always the same and that’s to win a Big Ten title,” Veatch said. “We have a very young talented team. We’re looking to do big things and defend our home course at the Big Ten championship. We’re really excited about it being in Bloomington this year and getting the chance to show everybody what being a Hoosier means.”


IU set to face Georgia Southern’s option offense By Jake Thomer @jake_the_thomer

When IU football’s Sept. 16 game against Florida International was canceled early last week, the Hoosiers instantly shifted into bye-week mode by adjusting practice schedules for players and recruiting trips for coaches. It could have thrown the Hoosiers into disarray, with a previously scheduled opponent now off the schedule entirely and a new opponent – Charleston Southern on Oct. 7 – added to the mix. Coach Tom Allen, however, sees the bright side. The unexpected week off gave his team a few extra days to prepare for the triple option offense utilized by this week’s opponent, Georgia Southern. “I think there's an advantage for sure,” Allen said. “If

you have a normal week, you really have just two days, so you can buy a few extra days of work to get ready.” Georgia Southern does not exactly boast the most potent triple option attack in the country. Its run-heavy system produced just 70 rushing yards on 47 attempts in a loss to then-No. 12 Auburn to begin the season. Even in a loss to FCS opponent New Hampshire, Georgia Southern’s leading rushers averaged less than four yards per carry. Nonetheless, the sheer rarity of facing a triple option offense forced Allen and his coaching staff to begin preparing for the Eagles back in spring camp. Allen said his team renewed its planning for the triple option, and the distinctive spin Georgia Southern puts on it, when summer camp began. In a typical triple option

offense, the quarterback has one running back he can hand off to and one running back he can pitch the ball to, in addition to the option of keeping it himself. Georgia Southern has this general setup, but unlike most triple options, the Eagles often use a shotgun formation with their freshman quarterback Shai Werts placed a few yards behind the line of scrimmage. Allen said the shotgun formation can disrupt the defense’s timing when guarding against the triple option, but it generally doesn’t present much difference from a triple option attack where the quarterback snaps from under center. "It creates similar challenges,” Allen said. “The cutting on the perimeter is probably the biggest challenge.” Werts drew praise from Allen for his speed and ath-

leticism, two traits commonly possessed by triple option quarterbacks. The freshman is Georgia Southern’s leading rusher, with 138 yards on the ground through two games. Werts has only thrown the ball 30 times this season with 15 completions for 101 yards and a pair of interceptions.

As a defensive coach with Ole Miss and South Florida the past few years, Allen has faced two of the country’s premier triple option attacks in Georgia Tech and Navy. While serving as linebackers’ coach for Ole Miss in 2013, Allen was part of a 25-17 win against Georgia Tech in

the Music City Bowl. As defensive coordinator for South Florida in 2015, Allen’s unit allowed Navy to rack up over 400 rushing yards as South Florida lost, 29-17. IU obviously doesn’t practice the triple option with its offense normally. The extra few days of practice before taking on Georgia Southern have helped, but Allen said it’s impossible to recreate the speed and skill IU will face come Saturday. “It always is going to take a series or two to get used to that speed of it,” Allen said. “I just think that, you know, that's why people run it. It creates challenges, and they will be difficult to stop.”

She said post-modernism is typically defined as the period after WWII and before 9/11. She defined the period as a time of sped up, globalized, completely inhuman scale of processes. "The aesthetic of writing in the post-modern era goes to kind of the zany, but also the super self-reflective," Sheldon said. “What I was really struck by is how bleak [Vonnegut’s] novels are. They're really caustic satires of American life and culture. And, they're also really weird.” Sheldon also said that while she sees Vonnegut as intelligent on topics such as mechanization, she doesn’t find him particularly smart when it comes to sex and gender. “I'm happy to look at works by fairly misogynistic writers, in order to be critical of those works," she said. "In order to say, 'How does this teach us about what was so much a part of the presumed culture?', that this writer, who is otherwise kind of brilliant about these other things, couldn't even see.” Sheldon said that her students, on the other hand, are tired of explaining why people hate. “What my students tell me is that they don't want to do that work anymore," she said. "And so I actually think there's a generational difference between the work of, for example, '90s queer theory and contemporary queer theorists and activists, that, for me, teaching Vonnegut has really made much more apparent than it had been before.” Science Rick Van Kooten, professor of physics and the Vice Provost for Research, said that he was a fan of Vonnegut's from a young age. “I'm a scientist, so I was a nerdy kid and still, still a nerd,” Van Kooten said. “I read his science fiction books just because they were in the genre of science fiction when I was 14 or 15.” Van Kooten looked at many of the ethical questions Vonnegut raises regarding science, relating the full automation of society



Manuscripts, like this one for novel "Player Piano," and other materials from Hoosier author Kurt Vonnegut are housed at Lilly Library. Starting in the spring, IU professors have read Vonnegut novels each month and written posts for the Salo University blog.

that takes place in "Player Piano," to the plight of modern coal workers as well as the large-scale implications of scientific discoveries such as nuclear reactions. In "Cat’s Cradle," a scientist discovers ice-nine, the properties of which leads to freezing the world’s oceans and worldwide calamity. “You can make a fan-

“He probably is the greatest author of the Trump era, even though he died before it happened.” Ed Comentale, director of IUB Arts and Humanities Council

tastic discovery, and you can pick it up and do great things for the world or it can have real perverse applications," Van Kooten said. “Ice-nine resulted in the end of the world, but to the character, it's just a scientific curiosity.” Van Kooten said that "Cat’s Cradle" was his favorite book, in part because of the character who discovers ice-nine. “A lot of scientists can see themselves in that,” Van Kooten said. “We’re scientists, because you can just get obsessed with little details and forget about everything else, and become somewhat absent-minded.” Van Kooten also said that he appreciated that Vonnegut never preaches in his

writing. “He's rarely providing answers," Van Kooten said. "He's just providing questions for people to at least think about and answer themselves." Future of the project Comentale said that when the professors finish reading and blogging about "Slaughterhouse-Five" in October, they will open submissions to students and faculty. At some point, Comentale said he hopes to work with IU Press to compile the blog posts into a physical or digital book. Comentale also said that he was planning on organizing a Kurt Vonnegut festival in Bloomington in the spring of 2018. “We are partnering with the record label Secretly Canadian and Upland Brewery and the city of Bloomington,” Comentale said. “Sometime in May or June of next year, we're going to hold a big festival that includes academic work and artistic performances and music performances and food inspired by Kurt Vonnegut and his works.” Beyond the relevance of Kurt Vonnegut at IU and in the state of Indiana, Comentale said that an Los Angeles production company is planning on picking up some of Vonnegut’s work for cable. Vice reported in 2015 that Noah Hawley was working with FX to turn "Cat’s Cradle" into a TV show. There have been few updates since, but Hawley said in an interview with the Telegraph that the project was still in the works. “I think he's about to blow up in a big way," Comentale said.

He has been battered and is shouldering an unreasonable amount of the rushing load. Experienced running backs Wesley Fields and L.A. Ramsby need bigger holes to run through and more carries, and part of that burden lies with the underperforming offensive line. The defense has been promising at times, including junior transfer linebackers Tomarcio Reese, but some players have also been injured and struggled mightily to put pressure on opposing quarterbacks. IDS: The Eagles have struggled in recent times under Tyson Summers. What has caused this downturn, and is Summers likely to be fired? Jilk: I wrote a column about the potential firing of Tyson Summers and how he and our athletics director have not been worth their contracts. The fact that Georgia Southern won its conference after moving up from FCS and dominated its first appearance in a bowl game was exciting and impressive, but it is unreasonable to expect a program that started FBS play in 2014 to sustain that kind of success. That said, Summers has helmed a dramatic decline in performance on the field and is at the center of a growing controversy regarding the firing of the co-offensive coordinators last season. He has lost the trust of the extremely passionate fans and has not met their high expectations. Kleinlein may give him until the end of the season to see if he can turn it around, but at Georgia South-


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 “We do want this initiative, from the IUB perspective, to be as much student led as possible,” Napoli said. One student already in the game is Josephine Mccormick. Mccormick, a freshman at IU, met Napoli over the summer during a freshman seminar. She said Napoli reached out to her about the initiative after she helped with a voter-registration

5 ern, a certain level of success is expected in football. In my opinion, if we have another losing season, Summers will almost certainly be fired. IDS: Georgia Southern obviously uses a unique tripleoption scheme. How has this brand of football helped and hurt the Eagles? Jilk: The option is commonly discussed as one of the hardest offenses to stop, but also one of the toughest to execute. If you watch Georgia Tech, coached by former GSU legend Paul Johnson, their option game is precise and incisive. This discipline takes years to develop, which is why it’s so important that Summers tampered with the scheme. To answer, the gun option we run now can be useful and dangerous with speed on the edge and an experienced decision-maker at quarterback. Our backfield is full of speed, including Werts, but the decision-making and offensive line play are not nearly where they need to be. At its worst, the option is predictable, and it has been just that too often for the Eagles this season. IDS: What has to go right for Georgia Southern to pull the upset this weekend? Jilk: In short, a lot. They have to put pressure on Richard Lagow, which seems unlikely considering the pass rush against New Hampshire was virtually invisible. They have to force turnovers on defense and take care of the ball on offense. The most important factor is offensive execution. Without picking up first downs and consistently moving the ball, there is no hope for Georgia Southern. However, if they are able to get a push up front and

wear out the Indiana defense, that is when long runs could open up and shift momentum in the Eagles’ favor. GSU also cannot afford the special teams blunders, including poor punting, that have been everywhere in the first two games. IDS: After losing to FCS school New Hampshire in its last game, what mentality does the Georgia Southern team have right now? Jilk: Summers insists the team remains confident, but isn’t denying he is “ticked off ” at the result of the New Hampshire game. He says he believes in his players, but to say they all believe in him would probably be far from factual. Everyone is saying the right things, but there is no way the mentality now is the same as it was at the beginning of the season. There’s just no way. The team definitely has talent, and if the players can begin to mesh more quickly, GSU has a chance to perform pretty well in Sun Belt Conference play and change fans’ minds about Summers. IDS: What's the outlook for the Eagles in Sun Belt Conference play this year? Jilk: The expectations are low right now. Appalachian State, the Eagles' longtime rival who moved up to the FBS the same year (2014), looks as strong as expected, along with Arkansas State and Troy. The Eagles play all three of the teams just mentioned in conference play. If they can win two of those games, they could be in good shape to finish in the top half of the conference.

drive. She said one of the greatest challenges at IU right now, as someone with fresh eyes on the scene, is political apathy. “Students are not getting involved in politics and not getting involved in the electoral process, and that is one of the darkest difficulties I’ve noticed and that I want to combat,” Mccormick said. “It’s important that students are aware of their duties as engaged citizens to vote and to be enfranchised.”

The residents of the 14 Big Ten universities signed a letter endorsing the challenge, and each pledged $10,000 to be used on their respective campuses to promote student engagement. After the 2018 election, trophies will go to two universities, one to the highest eligible voter turnout and one with the most improved turnout. “It’s not necessarily competing, but encouraging voter registration efforts,” Napoli said.

A look at different types of dietary lifestyles and the benefits of each


hey say you are what you eat — but in today's world, where there are so many different types of diets, how are you supposed to decide? Take a look at these popular dietary options if you can't keep track of what diet you should be trying next. Omnivore Diet Following an omnivore diet is most likely the easiest nutritional regimen to follow, and probably the most common as well. An omnivore diet has no restrictions and meat, vegetables, fish and dairy are all fair game. While following an omnivore diet doesn’t have any strict restrictions or limitations, balance is still an extremely important. Although omnivores can eat meat, it’s important to try to stick with lean meats like chicken or turkey instead of red meat, which is high in saturated fat, according to the American Heart Association. In terms of choosing organic foods, that’s up to individual preference. An omnivore diet provides a greater level of flexibility and there are limitless options for omnivore recipes. Can eat: Meat, fish, vegetables, fruits, dairy, wheat and grains, pretty much anything. Can’t eat: An omnivore diet doesn’t have any specific dietary restrictions, but it is important to be mindful and limit the consumption of the following: Processed sugars, high fat foods, highly processed foods, trans fats. Paleo Diet The paleo diet is not an easy regimen to follow, and judgement from skeptics doesn't make it any easier. Many myths float around about this diet that simply aren’t true. You don’t have to be a millionaire to afford the food. You won't starve from small portions. You don’t eat unbalanced meals. Truthfully, paleo is a way of getting back to the basics of what food the human body needs. Paleo diets focus on protein, fruits and vegetables. It discourages processed sugars and excessive grain intake because these foods instantly turn to sugar when

digested, and our bodies don’t need that much extra sugar. Paleo diet restrictions are most noticeable when trying to go out to eat. Strictly following the diet requires an extensive knowledge of what is in your food. Buying organic and natural food is preferred for this diet, so another difficulty can come from attempting to buy these types of food. Thankfully, there is a wide variety of grocery stores and markets in Bloomington who sell organic foods. Can eat: Meat, fish, vegtables, fruits, eggs. Can’t eat: Wheat and grains, processed sugars, most dairy products, transfats found in hydrogenated oils, highly processed foods in general. Pescatarian Diet Pescatarianism is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. Those following a pescatarian diet can eat fish and other shellfish, but eliminate standard “meat” from their diets including pork, beef, chicken and turkey. Pescatarianism is a great dietary option for those who aren’t inclined to eat meat because it still allows for a lot of flexibility, especially in social settings when you aren’t in charge of the menu. Fish are a good source of protein as well, so eliminating meat doesn’t mean you’ll be missing out on any essential nutrients that you would be getting otherwise. Can eat: Seafood, dairy, vegetables, wheat and grains. Can’t eat: Chicken, pork, turkey, beef, other meats like lamb, venison and veal. Vegetarian Diet Being a vegetarian can be difficult at first. A lot of people do it for ethical reasons: to cut back on animal cruelty or help reduce their carbon footprint, since the expansion of the "greenhouse effect," one of the leading causes of climate change, is exacerbated by animal agriculture, according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

Three simple, delicious recipes for veggie-lovers Rachel Rosenstock is a senior in journalism.

As someone who rarely goes the extra mile to prepare meat or poultry for meals, I’m always searching for ways to add variety into my vegetable and grain-dependent meals. While sometimes I’ll go a little crazy and make some salmon or shrimp, I usually hold out for meat dishes prepared by someone in a kitchen who knows what they’re doing. Here are a few dishes that range from vegan to pescatarian, all with a short list of ingredients. Vegan coconut curry 1 can coconut milk 1 can chickpeas 2 cups chopped veggies such as

broccoli, carrots, red bell peppers 2 cloves garlic Red pepper flakes to taste 1 tsp ground ginger 1 tbsp curry powder Olive oil Quick and easy soups, stews and curries are a relief on cold fall nights. While far from an authentic curry, as I claim no deep knowledge of Indian or Thai cuisine, this simple recipe is healthy and hearty. Plus it’s the perfect recipe to make a big batch of and keep in the fridge for a few days. First, sauté some of your favorite veggies like red bell peppers, carrots and broccoli in a pan with a little olive oil, red pepper flakes, 1 tsp ground ginger, 1 tbsp curry powder and garlic. Pour in a can of

chickpeas and one can of coconut milk and let simmer for 10 minutes. Eat over rice, quinoa or by itself. Vegetarian goat cheese tartine 2 slices sourdough bread 4 tbsps goat cheese 1 cup bean sprouts 2 eggs Sea salt to taste This became one of my staple lunch foods during time studying abroad in France. Tartines are the French version of open-faced sandwiches and its variations are endless. First, get a pot of water heating up to poach the eggs in. Just before you crack the eggs in, pop the bread in the toaster so it’ll be done right around the same SEE RECIPES, PAGE 9


This coconut curry recipe is a great option for vegans. Eating well is possible no matter what dietary lifestyle you choose.

Takei talks otherness, diversity By Katelyn Haas @khaas96

“Oh my,” George Takei said, wide-eyed with a big smile as the IU Auditorium audience applauded his entrance to the stage Tuesday night. The IU Union Board and Themester program joined together to bring the actor and activist to the IU Auditorium. The talk walked the audience through Takei’s life, spanning from his upbringing in a Japanese-American internment camp to his decision to come out as a gay man in 2005. Yasmine Raouf, Union Board lectures director, said Themester’s focus for the Fall 2017 semester is diversity, difference and otherness. She said Takei represents all of those things, and has been able to break out of typecasting as an Asian-American actor throughout his career. “He’s just done a lot to be inclusive to everyone and show the otherness of people and to normalize it, for a lack of a better word,” Raouf said. “And just make sure people are respectful and understanding of what it takes to go through all those difficult processes in your life.”

Takei said he vividly remembers waking up a few weeks after his fifth birthday to soldiers banging on his family’s door early one morning to take them to the internment camps in 1942. “We weren’t the enemy and we weren’t aliens, but we were treated as both.” Takei said. He talked about the beginning of his passion for advocacy, when his father took him to a campaign office and told him it is important to be active. “My father told me, ‘You have to keep on keeping on,’” Takei said. “Democracy moves slowly, but if we are actively pushing for what our democracy is about, you can find fruit there.” He lobbied for civil rights and worked on behalf of his own experiences, testifying in the name of Japanese Americans to receive an apology for the internment camps of World War II. But one issue he stayed quiet about was one that felt most organic to him, he said — his sexuality. “Here I was advocating for other issues, not in that campaign,” Takei said. “I had little needle pricks up and down my body all the time, it’s a torturous life to live.”


Actor, director, writer and activist George Takei talks about issues of diversity, differences and otherness in the IU Auditorium. It was Takei’s second appearance on IU’s campus.

But after former Gov. of California Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed legislation in 2005 for marriage equality, Takei realized enough was enough. “I sat back and said, ‘I’ve had an all right career, but it’s time to make some changes.’” Takei said. He came out as gay to

the press soon after, blasting Schwarzenegger’s veto. He went on to be a staunch supporter of the marriage equality movement. Lastly, in accordance with his fervent social media presence with 2.6 million Twitter followers, the talk ended with a Q&A from Twitter users. Jane McLeod, chair of the

To start a vegetarian diet, cut out red meat and then slowly stop eating other types of meat until you completely eliminate it from your diet completely. After cutting meat out, don’t just eat vegetarian junk food (french fries, chips, ice cream, etc.), or you won’t reap the health benefits of vegetarianism. Being vegetarian can improve your health because plants are chock-full of vitamins, protein and minerals that meat doesn’t have. Broccoli actually has more protein than DOMINICK JEAN | IDS

I bungee jump off a bridge over the ocean in Auckland, New Zealand. Auckland is the perfect destination for adrenaline junkies.

New Zealand, a country of thrills By Dominick Jean @Domino_Jean

On my second full day in Auckland, New Zealand, I jumped off a bridge around 9 a.m. Admittedly, I was attached to a bungee cable, with two backups, each of which could hold the weight of a car. I have never felt more like a man walking to his death than when I made my way beneath the Auckland harbor bridge to the “jump pod.” I was nervous and excited. I was about to jump 40 meters, or about 120 feet, from a bridge, and on my way down, I would almost touch the ocean. I was the second jumper of the day, and I made a classic mistake. I looked down. I do not recommend looking at your feet as your toes dangle over the edge of the plank. In spite of my fear, when my jump master counted down to one and gave me the go ahead, I went for it. My attempt at a leap was simply falling feet first, swinging about seven to 10

feet above the waterline. I bounced like a fish out of water. I attempted to pull the designated rope to unlock the carabiner tying my feet together but failed. So I just hung there, upside down, until my jump masters reeled me back into the pod. That was my first time bungee jumping, and I can say with certainty that you don’t know whether you will be able to jump until the moment they say “go.” For some, the incentive to jump is likely peer pressure from friends or how much money the trip cost. For me, it was the sheer recklessness of it all. That was my Tuesday morning excitement. While Auckland may not be the adventure capital of the world like Queenstown, New Zealand, it will forever hold a place of both love and fear in my heart. The day after was less exciting but still enjoyable. I spent the remainder of the day roaming different cafes and visiting the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki, parks and piers. I also visited the inactive volcanos like Mt. Eden scattered throughout

the city. While Auckland may not have a cafe at every corner, there are dozens throughout the Central Business District. Auckland may hold the title of the “City of Sails,” but the “City of Cafes” is almost as appropriate for this bustling seaside metropolis on the North Island. Auckland is fascinating to me. Its main streets wind through hills that put those of Bloomington to shame. And the city’s wide streets are juxtaposed with narrow pedestrian alleys, full of shops that are no more than holes in the wall. Overall, my first days in New Zealand have been a rollercoaster, deviating between high thrills like bungee jumping to relaxing in seaside cafes. New Zealand is a tourist’s dream in many ways, with thrills and relaxation in equal measure. It’s a land suitable for all kinds of people, and if you get the chance to visit, it would be difficult to find a more interesting place.

Themester planning committee, said she thought Takei would appeal to many people with lots of different backgrounds and experiences. She said the Q&A was an important aspect of the event as well, to give people an opportunity to engage with this semester’s theme. “The Q&A gives people

an opportunity to start where they are and reach out to that person who is there to speak to them and then hear back to how they can reach back to them,” McLeod said. One question asked if he gets excited about seeing Asian Americans in the entertainment business. Takei said he doesn’t get excited when he just sees any Asian Americans performing, he’s used to the stereotypes. “I get excited when I see something that’s wonderful and rare,” Takei said. “What I am particularly excited about in this day and age is now we are seeing AsianAmerican playwrights, director and producers as part of the industry and the stories are told from our perspective.” But he said it is even more important to see Asian Americans in the audiences of these performances in the industry. “We have to do our work to get our community to support our artists and our work, unless we do that it’s going to be very difficult to change.” Takei said. The last question: “How did it feel to sit in the Captain’s chair for the first time?” “Glorious.” Takei said.

Vegan Diet Many people harbor misconceptions about veganism, but it’s really not as difficult or as radical as people make it out to be. On a vegan diet, all animal-based products, including meat, seafood and dairy are off-limits. While this does seem incredibly restrictive, there are so many substitutes for nonvegan foods now. For example, ice cream can be made

with almond milk and vegan burgers are made from sweet potato and tofu. Other delicious vegan options include foods like quinoa and falafel. Like any diet, there are many reasons to go vegan, but one the main reasons people choose to do so is because it’s sustainable — both for the earth and your body. If you’re interested in becoming vegan, it’s a good idea to cut products out slowly, starting with meat. Reducing your animal-product consumption by just one day a week can make a difference. Can eat: Fruits, vegetables, grains, beans, nuts, seeds, tofu, meat substitutes. Can’t eat: Meat, seafood, dairy.

kale brown rice bowl 1 salmon filet 2-3 cups of chopped kale 2 cups brown rice Salt and pepper Olive oil Dressing of choice This is one of my favorite new recipes I was inspired to recreate after eating a delicious version at a breakfast spot in Amsterdam. You can pack huge amounts of protein, vitamins, fiber and carbohydrates in one bowl for a well-balanced and delicious meal. First, get the brown rice started on the stove because that’s the most timeconsuming part, it can take from 40 minutes to an hour.

Then, choose your method of preparation for the salmon. In my opinion, poaching, baking and grilling would all work for this recipe. Season with salt and pepper. The next step is the most arduous: preparing the kale. Strip the leaves off the stem and cut into smaller pieces, then coat with olive oil, salt and pepper and massage together. Sauté the kale until it is softer but still bright green. Once the salmon, kale and brown rice have all finished cooking, throw it all in a bowl and top with your favorite dressing. Some of my favorite choices are a balsamic reduction or miso vinaigrette.

Abuela Juannita, our namesake, has lovingly shared her recipes, and we’re entirely family owned and operated. Although the restaurant on W Kirkwood only opened in 2013, we’ve been in Bloomington’s food scene for quite a bit longer. Since 2007, Juannita’s daughter Carmen has been known as Bloomington’s “Tamale Lady,” delivering delicious tamales to local restaurants. But bringing interior Mexican dishes that simply aren’t on any other menus in town was the entire family’s dream, and we came together to make it a reality. Every little detail – from the bright yellow paint outside, to the fresh salsa verde, to the soda imported from Mexico and the homemade horchata – was carefully chosen to show Bloomington a real reflection of our Mexican heritage. We hope you enjoy.

DeVos calls for Title IX reform Contrasting two sides to reevaluating campus sexual assault cases DeVos makes a strong argument


ducation Secretary Betsy DeVos said last week that she will review the guidance for addressing sexual assault on college campuses. DeVos said she thinks the Obama administration went too far in an attempt to protect victims, ultimately infringing on the due process of those accused. Though DeVos is a contentious education secretary to say the least, she is absolutely right on this issue. Due process is a fundamental right granted to Americans through the Fourth and Fifth Amendments. And although campus hearings are not government courts of law, public universities, which are government entities, should be beholden to the same standards. Currently, too many campus hearings at public colleges – for sexual assault or other charges – look like this: The accused is ushered into a room where a single arbitrator or a small group of university employees unilaterally decides the fate of the person. Depending on the college, the accused may not be allowed to call witnesses or bring forth evidence. Even in IU's system, where the accused may suggest witnesses and produce evidence, the time frame to do so leaves students scrambling. Who is allowed to speak, what evidence is brought forth and who decides responsibility are all determined by the University. It’s ridiculous to believe that this process could ever be impartial, and it’s even more ridiculous to expect 20-year-old people without the right to let an attorney defend them to defend themselves. In IU's case specifically, attorneys are allowed to be present, but they cannot speak. In criminal trials, the accused is innocent until proven guilty, but campuses have perverted this American standard of justice and now force the accused to

DeVos need to reprioritize

prove his or her innocence. News outlets as varied as National Public Radio, the Washington Examiner and the Atlantic have criticized current campus sexual assault policy. Universities have gone beyond providing support to victims and now wholly disregard the rights of the accused. Though those who criticize DeVos’ stance, like Lucia Graves in the Guardian, claim that DeVos is simply protecting the entitled white male masses that helped elect Donald Trump. We wholeheartedly understand why people distrust the Trump administration, but advocating for due process on campuses should not be met with scorn. Currently, campus sexual assault is treated as an inherently different crime than all others, according to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education. Additionally, the standard of proof is much lower than in criminal trials – a mere preponderance of the evidence is needed to find someone guilty on campus. This means that those determining guilt need only find that it's more likely than not that the alleged student is responsible. No crime should treat the accused as guilty until proven innocent, but those who criticize DeVos simultaneously want the Trump administration to be able to determine what crimes warrant this special status of proving innocence. Giving the government the power to suspend due process for any reason weakens the civil liberties of all Americans. Public universities need to treat those accused of sexual assault with the same presumption of innocence as those accused in courts. Due process is one of the most important tenets in the American legal system, and public universities that disregard it are actively telling students that their rights don’t matter.


ducation Secretary Betsy DeVos declared last week the methods by which college campuses handle sexual assault constitute a “failed system.” In a speech at George Mason University, DeVos said the Obama administration “burdened schools with increasingly elaborate and confusing guidelines” that her department now intends to review and improve. When 11.2 percent of all students and 23.1 percent of female undergraduates, according to the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network, experience rape or sexual assault, and two-thirds of all episodes of sexual violence are unreported, DeVos has good reason to say the system has failed. What she does not have good reason to propose is that the priorities in repairing this failed system should lie anywhere other than with the victims – not of failed due process, but of sexual violence. Given both the statistical likelihood and social consequence of sexual assault, reparations should begin with the victims. Even if it were not for the compulsion of human decency to be attentive to survivors of sexual violence, the logical clarity available when one tries to minimize harm necessitates that we improve the process by which students report sexual assault and the quality of the legal counsel reporting students receive. Of all reported sexual assaults, the vast majority are true accounts. Three different studies on sexual assault accusations in United States communities published by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center indicate that between 2 and 10 percent of accusations are false, which suggests that we would be fair in directing our attention first toward the more prevalent and therefore urgent issues that affect survivors. While the Editorial Board recognizes the necessity to provide all stu-

dents with due process, and while we also recognize the concern that accused students may be seen as guilty until proven innocent, we would like to emphasize that only seven of every 1,000 instances of rape cases result in a felony conviction for the accused. And, of course, as Brock Turner's case brings to light, these reprimands are often heinously insensitive to the severity of the crime. We feel that DeVos' suggestion of alternative models for the handling of sexual assault will level disproportionate harm on survivors if greater legal protections are granted to accused parties prior to the implementation of such measures as, for example, clarification of Obamaera guidelines and improved treatment of students who report. DeVos cited a female student who was required to assemble her own case at a university disciplinary hearing. “Without any legal training whatsoever, she had to prepare an opening statement, fix exhibits and find witnesses,” DeVos said. And yet, her seeming delicacy in understanding the gravity of sexual assault is tarnished by some ill-made remarks. For instance, she once said, “Any perceived offense can become a full-blown Title IX investigation.” She also said, “If everything is harassment, then nothing is.” The tone of DeVos' speech, as well as the context of the Trump administration’s influence on whatever reforms the Department of Education suggests and implements, gives us reason to fear that the system will continue to fail. Apparently, the reform process will begin with “a transparent notice-andcomment process” that considers public feedback. Well, Secretary DeVos, notice our comment: Survivors’ lives are in your hands. Do not let them down. ILLUSTRATION BY GRACE HAWKINS | IDS


House Resolution 620 would discriminate against disabled Americans Josh Hoffer is a junior in biology.

House Resolution 620, introduced in January by Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, will unduly restrict the freedoms of disabled Americans and weaken the American Disabilities Act. In a recent press release, the ACLU stated that the resolution, described as an ADA education and reform act, “removes any incentive for businesses to comply proactively with the ADA” by limiting disabled people’s ability to seek legal action against businesses and public establishments that are inaccessible due to some form of physical barrier. The ACLU is also one of

the 236 organizations that have cosigned a letter urging the rejection of H.R. 620 that was sent to the House Judiciary Committee. The committee voted to advance the resolution anyway. If the resolution is eventually passed, disabled people will be required to provide business owners with a written notice detailing the address of the property, the specific ADA sections alleged to have been violated, whether a request for assistance in removing an architectural barrier was made and whether the barrier was permanent or temporary. Even after the written notice has been submitted, all

the business owner must do to avoid litigation is “provide the person with a written description outlining improvements that will be made to remove the barrier,” according to the text of the proposed resolution. The only times disabled people will be able to pursue legal action are if the business fails to provide a description of its planned improvements or if the business fails to make “substantial progress” towards removing the barrier. Instead of immediately being at risk of litigation for failing to comply to Title III of the ADA, which prohibits discrimination against disabled people, businesses will now

have months or even years of feet-dragging, lollygagging and bureaucratic leeway before suffering from any actual consequences, and all while still remaining inaccessible to the disabled person. The deadline for compliance is currently set at an absurdly long 180 days, the definition of “substantial progress” seems horribly ambiguous and this entire sequence of events isn’t even initiated until a disabled person provides the business with a correctly formulated written notice. It is clear that this resolution does nothing but hinder the progress of all those working to create a truly equal nation.

This wouldn’t be the first time the Trump Administration has demonstrated blatant disregard for the lives of disabled Americans. The administration has removed contact information and fact sheets about disability from the White House website and is still actively pursuing Affordable Care Act overhauls that would cause the cost of disabled people’s insurance costs to skyrocket or eliminate their coverage completely. Trump himself, of course, received harsh criticism after cruelly mocking New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski, who has a form of congenital joint contracture called arthrogryposis, during one of

his campaign speeches last November. The majority of this administration’s rhetoric and legislative action has been focused on oppressing anyone who is not an able-bodied white male, and H.R. 620 is no different. The resolution will be moving to a full House floor vote in the near future. Call your representatives and ensure that H.R 620 will not receive their votes. We are a nation that claims to provide liberty and justice for all. Let us try to make such an ideal our reality. @jhoffer17


Thomas Hart Benton's KKK mural asks us not to repeat our past I attended some workrelated meetings on your beautiful campus earlier this week. I was visiting from Chicago, where I work at the Art Institute. I read with interest Katelyn Haas' front-page article "KKK depiction in IU mural reignites debate," published Sept. 11, on the depiction of the KKK in one of the panels of Thomas Hart Benton’s monumental cycle about Indiana’s history. After reading

the article, I viewed the panel in question, and I then sought out the remaining panels. Everyone should view and reflect on Benton's work more fully before petitioning to remove this art from its current location. When taking into account the cycle as a whole, the passage in question — pushed into the background — is dwarfed by the sheer scope of Benton's creation. The depiction of the KKK

is clear, but to use this as a reason to remove the panel is short-sighted. It is but a small part of the whole, an important part, but the representation of the KKK does not define the mural. The viewer should also evaluate Benton's overall intention, specifically with respect to this passage. Underneath, in the foreground and in the center of the panel, is a little African-American girl with an injured arm

resting on a hospital bed and being attended to by a white nurse. Opposite the nurse, a photographer takes the girl's picture. These two figures act as framing devices, drawing the viewer's attention to the girl. The Klan looms above her. She, in turn, looks directly out at the viewer. This is no small point Benton is making. There is no other figure in the entire cycle that breaks the pictorial plane and confronts

the viewer like she does. Benton is challenging the viewer to look at this young black girl and sympathize with her, to be on her side, even as the Klan still threatens. Given this, I also think it is clear where Benton's sympathies lie. This artwork is not a tribute erected in a town square to a hoary Confederate general. Those should be shipped off to museums. Benton's "History of Indiana,"

however, is exactly where it should be, at an educational institution. And the panel in question is precisely where it should be, in a classroom. There is no finer teachable moment than to reflect on Indiana's imperfect history while recognizing the change that was still in the future for people of color in this country.
