As well as t-shirts, the SRC gave away free hotdogs and soft drinks to attendees. Events included a “dive-in” movie, a climbing wall tower,
inflatables and a giant Zumba class in a carnival atmosphere. John Lentz, director of Recreational Sports, said in a previous interview, “It is a great way to finish the first week of classes and begin the start of a new school year.” More than 750 students attended this year.

SGA prez, VP seek participation DUSTYN FATHEREE Reporter
Student Government Association President Nick Utterback and Vice President Lezlie Maslanka seek to increase participation in campus events and raise awareness of their organization. “Being president is very busy, but very productive. I couldn’t be happier with staff and the people I am working with,” said Utterback, a junior elementary education major. Maslanka, a senior communication major, wants to get to know ISU students. “If you see us around campus, say hi, we love to meet new people and are excited for the new year,” she said.

The Indiana Statesman is published Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, except during exam periods and university breaks, and is published three times during the summer. The Indiana Statesman was founded May 16, 1929, the same year that Indiana State Normal School became Indiana State Teachers College. The newspaper began in December 1879 as the State Normal News. In November 1895, the paper was first issued as the Normal Advance. Members of the ISU community are welcome to take a single copy of each issue of this newspaper. The unauthorized taking of multiple copies, however, may constitute theft, which is a crime, even with free publications. Thefts will be reported to campus police for possible prosecution and/or for other disciplinary actions. The Indiana Statesman exists for four main reasons: to provide the ISU community with news and information, to serve the campus as a public forum for student and reader comments, to offer student staff members chances to apply their skills in different aspects of a news publication, and to give students leadership opportunities.

FOX staying in the Haute Nick Hedrick News Editor
Even as Terre Haute’s FOX station prepares to switch affiliates, some viewers will still see such shows as “Glee” and “The Simpsons.” WTHI Channel 10 announced last week it would carry FOX programming on its digital channel 10.2, branded “MyFOX10.” Televisions without over-the-air signals cannot transmit digital sub-channels, but the station said it was working with
cable and satellite companies to provide service to those customers. The channel launches Thurday on the same day FOX 38 becomes an ABC affiliate. “We are excited that our digital channel will feature FOX’s excellent lineup of sports and entertainment programming, as well as a new original news product,” said Todd Weber, vice president and general manager of WTHI-TV, in a news release posted on MyFOX10’s web-
site. WTHI will produce a 10 p.m. newscast for MyFOX10. “Having both CBS and FOX programming on our channels is a great combination for both our viewers and advertisers,” Weber said. MyFOX10’s syndicated programming offerings will include “Jerry Springer,” “Cash Cab” and Anderson Cooper’s new daytime talk show. More information about MyFOX10 is available at myfox10tv.com.

Are TV shows canceled too soon? “Tuning in” Joe Wagner Columnist
“Friends” premiered it had trouble finding an audience and didn’t become very popular until its second or third season. It makes me wonder; if “Friends” would premiere this year and had that same struggle finding an audience would it have made it to a season two? What is more heartbreaking than a show not being given a chance, however, is when a show has been going for a couple seasons and develops a cult following and is then cancelled. There are incidents where a TV show is on the verge of cancelation, but then the fans are what push it over the edge for a renewal. For example, back in 2000 when the show “Roswell” was in danger of not getting a second season, a fierce fandriven campaign involving bottles of Tabasco sauce-a favorite condiment of the show’s alien characters-were sent to the network’s offices. It did the trick, and “Roswell” ran for another two seasons. Other shows that were gone too soon include; “Pushing Daises,” “Veronica Mars,” “Arrested Development,” “Freaks and Geeks,” “My So-Called Life,” “Jericho,” “Sports *More information is available at Night,” “Firefly” and “Angels in America.” www.tvguide.com/special/fallHopefully this year’s group of freshman series have preview more luck.
In the middle of September, all of our favorite TV shows return, and our weekday nights will be filled with familiar characters and fresh storylines. However, these shows will also be joined by a group of new shows hoping to find an audience and a good time slot, and avoid getting canceled early on in their season. Every year there are a couple of shows that don’t make it past their

My Drunk Icon? In the straight-laced foodiverse, Paula Deen rules the south, Bobby Flay dominates the southwest and Rachael Ray commands the east coast. But the culinarily-challenged youth of America has Hannah “Harto” Hart, who serves as executive chef for the YouTube smash “My Drunk “Write and Kitchen.” Wrong” During each webisode, Hart attempts to create items such Brianne as ice cream, grilled cheese Hofmann and cookies while intoxicatOpinion ed. The dishes never turn out editor right, but the videos are more entertaining than they are educational. Although Hart has gained quite the following since her debut in March (episode 6 has nearly one million views), she has likely caused concerns over her behavior and how it’s going to influence her underage audience. Perhaps she’s spreading the message that it’s okay to be hammered while playing with fire and knives. Parents, especially, feel that Hart is leading their children straight into the arms of alcoholism. But Hart, who keeps a sober friend handy in the kitchen and posts her episodes in moderation, isn’t trying to sell alcohol to children or condone irresponsible actions. She is merely putting a twist on what many
20-somethings are already doing in bars and at parties. But instead of drinking behind the wheel or in public, she’s doing so in the confines of her own home. She’s saying, “Yes, I’m doing something that CAN be dangerous, but it doesn’t have to be if you’re smart about it.” I see where Hart could go wrong. She admitted on her most recent episode, titled “Latkes,” that 14-year-olds are watching her videos. But it is also up to parents and educators to monitor activity on the Internet. It can’t be entirely up to Hart or any other web personality to convince impressionable teenagers to hit the “back” button on the browser. The show has an adult theme and is geared towards the college community. This is clear. Also, Hart has been doing her “My Drunk Kitchen” for six months, and I have yet to hear about anyone falling victim to imitation. Regardless of the controversy, it may be causing, though, it is at least starting conversations about youth and their right to enjoy alcohol. Hart is onto something, and we should take notice.

Terre Haute natives shoot movie, film on the ISU campus Whitney Neukam Reporter
Upcoming Events: • Student Organization Expo Monday 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. Dede Plaza • Sundaes on Monday Monday 6 - 8 p.m. Dede I
Earlier this summer, a movie related to Terre Haute native Eugene V. Debs was filmed at various locations throughout the city, including the ISU campus. “The Drunk” was co-written and co-directed by Terre Haute natives William Tanoos and Paul Fleschner. The two men also star in the movie. The main character is Joe, the fictional grandson of Eugene. Tanoos portrays Joe, a heavy drinker and unlikely Democratic Party nominee, running to be governor of Indiana in 2012. Tom Sizemore, who was featured in both “Saving Private Ryan” and “Blackhawk Down,” plays a corrupt prosecutor running against Joe. “We came up with the idea to utilize Eugene V. Debs as a proud native son of Terre Haute who serves as a backdrop in order to tie the story closer to us and our hometown; to make a deeper personal connection,” Tanoos said. Debs was an advocate for organized labor in America, women’s rights, racial desegregation and child labor laws. Due to these views, the fellow members of his community did not always openly accept him. Although the Terre Haute community was never very accepting of Debs, preserving his memory has always been important to retired ISU professor, Charles King, who has been the secretary of the Eugene V. Debs Foundation since 1985. The Debs Foundation supported “The Drunk,” even though the plot is fictional, because if the film grabs movie producers’ attention at movie festivals, it could bring more awareness to Debs and the issues he supported. Although King and the Debs Foundation offered Tanoos and Fleschner tips on common phrases used during Debs’ time, he gave the screenwriters full artistic license when it came
to writing the script, which included both the movie’s title, along with the character Joe Debs’ drinking problem. Eugene Debs also had a bit of a drinking problem. Even though his ideas were radical, members of the community still offered to buy him drinks, and frequently, he was invited by prominent members of the community to give toasts at parties and other social events. Woodrow Wilson, who was president at that time, did not appreciate Debs’ captivating personality as much as some others did, however. He refused to release Debs from prison on multiple occasions. Debs was not released from prison until the 1920 election when he received more than one million votes from his jail cell. Terre Haute’s opinion of Debs was altered during the three years that Debs was in prison. In 1918, after Debs had given a speech saying that capitalism had allegedly caused WWI, a local newspaper suggested that Debs be thrown in jail. In 1921, however, the Terre Haute Post advocated for Debs’ campaign for freedom, and over sixty percent of the town signed the petition. When Debs returned to Terre Haute after being released from prison, a band, church bells and a large crowd carrying signs with phrases such as, “Debs the humanitarian” welcomed him. Ninety years later, Terre Haute managed to pull together for Debs’ sake once again. “Every encounter we had with the community and its citizens was positive,” Tanoos said. “Local businesses, government, residences, the Debs Foundation and ISU were open and supportive in allowing us to film at their respective locations. We can only hope that our film shines the wonderful light on Terre Haute as it has done for us in the production of our film.”

Students share thoughts on bookstore Whitney Neukam Reporter
The new ISU Barnes and Noble bookstore, which was previously located in the Hulman Memorial Student Union, has received plenty of positive feedback from ISU students. Now located on the corner of Fourth and Cherry streets, both upperclassmen and freshmen alike enjoy the new features of the facility such as a Starbucks café, which offers a wide variety of food and drinks, free Wi-Fi, textbooks, general reading books and school-related merchandise. Clancy Wells, a senior criminology major, stated that she likes that the new store has both an upstairs and a downstairs, instead of everything being merged together like it was in the HMSU. Although some students appreciated the convenience of the old bookstore being in the Commons, they also enjoy having extra space. In a building that takes up almost a full block, students have more of an opportunity to enjoy themselves. They don’t have to come in and just buy their textbooks. They can read, enjoy some coffee and a snack or buy school supplies on a short notice.
“It’s nice that you don’t have to be shoulderto-shoulder with people as you’re shopping anymore,” said Rose Newton, a sophomore biology major. “You can sit and read a book, or do homework. It’s a much more relaxed environment.” Sophomore pre-law major Allison Gary added, “It has a lot more resources for people to use. You can buy your textbooks, and the café is awesome, so it’s like killing two birds with one stone.” Other students, however, are not as happy with the new facility. Haley Robinaugh, freshman interior design major, argues that the bookstore seems disorganized in the bookstore department, something other students agree with. “It seems like they honestly don’t know what they’re doing,” mentioned a freshman who asked not to be named. “I’ve gone there multiple times, and they never seem to have books that several students need for a particular class. It’s frustrating because some teachers are already assigning work from the textbooks that are out-of-stock, and students have to jump through a bunch of hoops to get their assignments done. I think they were just unprepared about what to expect this year since they moved to a new building. Hopefully next year will be better.”
Students, parents and faculty investigate the new ISU bookstore, located north of the campus on Fifth Street, at its grand opening in April. With two floors, the new location offers more room for students to browse and also more products to choose from. Students have mixed feelings about the new location but hope it is just because of the location change. (Photo courtesy of ISU Communications and Marketing)

Creative Writing Society hosts Open Mic Night, students display creativity ALEXA LARKIN Features Editor
The first “Open MIC Night” of the fall semester will take place Monday, sponsored by the ISU Creative Writing Society of ISU. This event began during the spring semester of last year and was held twice a month. The first one of this semester will be in HMSU Sycamore Lounge from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. It will continue to be a bimonthly event, and the society plans to alternate between Monday and Thursday nights. The Creative Writing Society created this event in order to support the creative efforts of ISU students and increase interest in their organization, said Jessica Singleton, president of the society. “Open Mic Night is a forum in which any member
of the campus community is welcome to share their creative work,” Singleton said. “We encourage individuals to share their original poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, songs and performances with the crowd.” In the past, students have read poems and short stories and performed songs, including rapping. Catie Spicer, CWS treasurer, and Nicole Trobaugh, CWS vice president, both plan to read poems at the event. “Open mic nights are a great way to get out and meet people or just listen and be entertained,” Spicer said. Junior communication major, Mieke Tackett, is also pursuing a creative writing minor and said the event has been publicized in one of her classes already this semester. Creative writing professor
Aaron Morales teaches the class. Tackett is planning to attend the event and might bring an original piece to read, she said. “I am excited to attend for the first time and hear the creative work of other ISU students,” Tackett said. The event will alternate the night of the week it is held in order to make it available to as many students as possible.

The Bulldogs advanced down the right wing and finished with a header to the back of the net. The Sycamores were on the defensive for most of the game. Butler made several advances on goal getting an early shot in the 8th minute that was blocked by ISU defense, and on a breakaway, freshman defender Sadie Bauserman made a defensive stop in the 40th minute against two Butler forwards. Entering into the half, the score remained 0-0 with the Bulldogs outscoring the Sycamores on shots 7-1, 2-0 on goal. In the beginning of the second half, the Sycamores saw continued pressure from the Bulldogs as, two minutes into the half, the Bulldogs hit the ISU crossbar from 20 yards out. The Sycamores continued to keep the Bulldogs at bay with sophomore goalkeeper Brianna Supulski leaping and punching a shot over the crossbar in the 66th minute. The Sycamores began a more aggressive assault in the last few minutes of play with a shot from 35 yards out going over the crossbar by sophomore defender Ali
Ardaiolo. Freshman forward Bria Caldwell attempted a shot from 40 yards out but it went wide right. ISU ended the half with six shots. “We are going to learn from this and grow from this,” Erika True, ISU women’s soccer head coach, said. “It’s going to be competitive and tough, and I think all year we are going to continue to grow and learn from these games.” The Sycamores were in action again on Sunday when they played two-time defending Mid-American Conference Champions Central Michigan University. The Sycamores fell 0-2 to the Chippewas who scored both goals in the second half. In the 53rd minute of play the Chippewas broke the deadlock with a shot from the top of the penalty box following a middle field turnover. The Sycamores retaliated in the 69th minute with two shots from Seyma Erenli. One shot was blocked while the other went over the crossbar. Senior Seyma Erenli said that the team is still young and still has to get into the groove of things. “I think we have the soccer, we have the talent, we have the skill, it’s just about getting it altogether,” Erenli said.

(Photo taken by Tyler Smith) they get ready to host Ball State at the Memorial Stadium. “As we go into next weekend, we will have a renewed spirit about us, and I think next weekend we will be able to get the job done,” True said.

Day Two The competition between fans’ cheers reflected the intensity of the game between ISU and the University of Miami in Oxford, Ohio in the Arena on Saturday. The game went into the fifth set of play as Miami managed to tie the sets at 2 apiece after the Sycamores jumped ahead in the first two sets winning 25-12 and 25-15. The Redbirds took the final set and the game. “It’s going to be a learning experience for us,” Shelbi Fouty, senior setter, said. “[The game will] teach us how to work when we are down.” Day two action for the Sycamores continued in the evening as the team went up against Coppin State University in the final game of the tournament. The first set was close as teams fought for the lead in the first few plays of the game. The Sycamores eventually won the battle, but the Eagles trailed not far behind. The Sycamores took the first set 25-21. After being tied at 4-4 in the second set of play, the Sycamores scored 5 consecutive points. At one point of the game, the Sycamores led by 10 points (20-10) before closing out the game with a kill from Stacy Qualizza. The final score was 2517. The third and final set ended with the same score of 25-17. The Sycamores maintained a ninepoint lead for the majority of the game.
The Sycamores closed out the final game of the tournament with 42 kills and five service aces. Notable players throughout the tournament were Qualizza who finished second in hitting percentage with 36 of 72 attempted kills and Kiya James who was second in number of digs with 64. Morgan Dall led the Sycamores in kills with 60 and Shea Doran led in blocks with 13. Dahl said that the team had a ton of fight in them and have lots of potential this season. “They learned a lot this weekend,” Dahl said. “They learned how to win fast. They learned how to win slow.” The Sycamores’ season continues next weekend at the Drury Inn/ASICS Volleyball Challenge. The two-day tournament will be played in the ISU Arena Saturday and Sunday.
