President Bradley discussed present, future of ISU at fall address Alex Waugh Reporter

The 2015 Presidential Fall Address was held in the Tilson Auditorium on Wednesday. President Daniel Bradley announced the latest reports of development and preparation for Indiana State University at its sesquicentennial. The Fall Address opened with greetings from staff, starting with Kim Smith, Board of Trustees, who began by expressing fervency for Indiana State’s recently received accolades. These included the university’s threeyear, premier position in the nation for service, its rank of 20th in the nation for the impact it makes on its students and society as a whole, and this semester’s record-breaking enrollment of 13,584 students. “Work on enrollment was a main goal … of the strategic plan that was put into place some years ago,” Smith said. “That plan has come to fruition due to the hard work of … our faculty, our staff, and our administration across this great campus.” Next, Chris McDonald, faculty senate, resounded the fulfillment of the new enrollment record. “It was impressive to see so many new faces in one place,” McDonald said, regarding the new student convocation. “But as I looked at Hulman Center, full of students, I wondered how many of them would actually graduate from Indiana State University and would actually do it in four years. Now, unless something changes, I unfortunately know the answer to that question. Less than 25 percent. That should be a shocking num-

ber to (us).” McDonald acknowledged that, to improve the graduating rate, much of the work is up to the students who must register, attend, and sufficiently complete their courses, but that additionally, “(Faculty and staff) should do all that we reasonably can to ensure that (students) can graduate in a timely way with a meaningful and rigorous education.” Roxanne Torrence, staff council, then took to the lectern, where she too voiced excitement for Indiana State University’s latest achievements and also delivered a message with regards to the staff council. “In November, the (staff) council will be hosting another murder mystery,” she said. “This year’s event will include a special appearance by President Bradley.” To conclude the greetings, Vernon Cheeks, president of the Student Government Association, spoke about several topics of importance, emphasizing one in particular. “No feedback is more critical to students than timely feedback on academic performance for preparedness,” Cheeks said. “The commitment to providing accurate information is essential,” he said to members of faculty and staff present in the audience. “Whether it is grades, course selection, financial aid, career planning, health and wellness, or school engagement, it is this commitment to student success that matters most to the students of Indiana State.” Following the greetings, Daniel Bradley, President of Indiana State University, communicated numerous notices of changes that have been made and are to be made in the approaching seasons. These included new additions to Indi-

ana State’s faculty, staff and trustees. Also touched upon were the most recent renovations and expansions of infrastructure, along with plans for future development of architecture, sports and academia. Additionally, awards of collaboration were presented to David Robinson, Scott College of Business, and Beverly Bitzegaio, College of Technology, for their collaboration on the Tech Express Cafe in the John T. Myers Technology Center, and also Metricia Pierce, Department of Kinesiology, Recreation, and Sport, Charles Welker, Wabash Valley Health Center, and Timothy Demchak, Department of Applied Medicine and Rehabilitation, for their collaboration on Athletic Training and the Wabash Valley Health Center. “Collaboration is the way we’ll go from good to great,” Bradley said. “We need to work on the edges of what we do because that’s where we can make the biggest gains.” Samantha Ginoplos, a freshman double-majoring in communication and theatre, said that she found the fall address intriguing, but that she was shocked by Indiana State’s low graduation rate. “It’s sad because ISU has so much to offer its students,” Ginoplos said. “I would love to see ISU’s graduation rate improve.” Bruce McClaren, associate dean of the Scott College of Business, said that the news conveyed in the fall address was “terrific” and that he was pleased with the strategic plan of how to keep students moving forward. “It’s good to hear good news,” McClaren said. “There’s a lot of different areas to be proud of. Not just student enrollment, but also student engagement.”

A research study on mental health development in early adulthood, conducted by Paul Bolinskey, an associate professor in the psychology department, is currently taking place at Indiana State University. The purpose of the study is to examine factors related to mental health in individuals between the ages of 18 and 34 years in order to help better understand the relationship between mental health development throughout early adulthood and future mental health status. Factors studied are things like family history, personal history, personality factors, academic history, substance use and cognitive abilities. If anyone has previously participated in this study, they are not eligible to participate again. Bolinskey is seeking to enroll individuals who are currently between the ages of 18 and 24 years. By agreeing to participate in the initial phases of data collection, they agree to allow the researchers to contact them about participating in follow-up procedures, although they are not necessarily agreeing to participate in future data collection procedures. Approximately 20 percent of Phase I participants will be invited to participate in Phase II of data collection. Participants in Phase II will then have the option to participate in two, five, seven and 10-year followup assessments. Phase I consists of both inperson data collection and an online questionnaire that should be completed within 48 hours. Completing these activities will take approximately one and a half hours. Following data collection, participants will be asked to complete additional questionnaires within 48 hours. In addition, individuals who complete Phase I consent to allow the principal investigator to access their academic records for the current semester to collect data on their GPA, the number of credit hours attempted and the number of credit hours passed. Participation in the online portion of data collection should require approximately one and one half hours and should be done within 48 hours of the initial data collection activities.


New office will support multicultural students Nevia Buford Reporter

The new multicultural services program and area is an upcoming office designed to help students of multiple identities and cultures prosper in their academics. Dr. Elonda Ervin, the executive director of multicultural services and programs, and Dr. Willie Banks, the vice president for student affairs, will be in charge of the program. “This office will develop, advise, implement and evaluate educational programs that promote the retention and graduation of multicultural students,” Ervin said. “The program will have the responsibility of determining the educational, resources and programing needed to help multi- identity students graduate.” The program is in the process of moving to the 7th floor of the Hulman Memorial Student Union and plans to complete the move sometime within the next six to eight months. Also on the floor will be a Women’s cen-

ter and LGBTQ resource center, which will work with the multicultural services program to provide students on campus with resources that will help them deal with issues in their lives, and also to make sure that they are succeeding academically. “They will remain separate, even though we’re walking together, and working together collaboratively,” Ervin said. “Physical space will be dedicated to the Women’s center and … to the LGBT center.” For students, the office presents a safe place to talk about their issues and concerns. “The things that are just problematic in the course of your life, as a student, those are things that you would automatically come to me,” Ervin said. “And I figure out a way to resolve that issue, or an avenue to give students a voice, because a lot of times that’s basically all you need.” The office aims to provide support to all students, regardless of how they identify. “It’s really important that we provide support for all of our students, but espe-

cially some of our students of color, and also students who identify in multiple ways,” Banks said. “So I hope that the creation of multicultural services and programs, the LGBT resource center, the women’s resource center, really fills that void in providing services for students.” Banks said that he wants student organizations to thrive through the use of the multicultural services, and for all students to have an opportunity to participate in organizations. He also wants to increase awareness of diversity on campus. “I think there’s a way to celebrate the diversity that we have here on campus and inclusion, and really broaden the conversation when we talk about what inclusion looks like on a college campus,” Banks said. The program will be built on some of the current things that the university already offers, such as Safe Zone, but will also work to add new elements that will provide an educational link, in order to promote graduation rates. “It’s all about what students leave here knowing or understanding,” Ervin said.

Ervin said she feels that the multicultural services program and area is a good idea because it is important for the university to have multiple ways to help multicultural students complete a degree. “Rationally, the higher your retention rate goes, the higher your admission rate goes,” Ervin said. Banks said he feels that the program is important because it will provide a safe space for students to thrive and create a space on campus for them to have a great ISU experience. “I think part of that is we need to provide them with space. I think those types of things will help, in really pushing the graduation retention rate of all our students up,” Banks said. Ervin said she hopes programs like this could help ISU become a model to other schools. “We want (Indiana State) to be used as a model for best practices. That would be excellent, instead of us looking for best practices, we want others to look at us,” Ervin said.

Obama celebrates train heroes

When Kristen Houser joined a rally against sexual violence at Pennsylvania State University two decades ago, the women encountered jeers from male students to “go back to the kitchen” and limited support from campus officials. But as she surveyed the scene at a national sexual assault conference in Los Angeles earlier this month, she was floored by the progress activists have made. More than 1,500 participants flocked to the sold-out conference. Officials representing the White House, the U.S. Department of Justice and California Gov. Jerry Brown touted new programs to fight domestic and sexual violence. The NFL pledged an initial $2.5 million in what activists said was the first major corporate funding of the issue. “I would never have dreamed this could happen,” said Houser, of the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, one of the event’s sponsors. “It’s a little bit surreal.” The conference showcased both pioneers and the new generation of leaders on the issue. Beckie Masaki, who founded San Francisco’s first Asian women’s shelter in the mid-1980s, shared the stage with Kamilah Willingham, a Harvard Law School graduate who works on the issue at the California Women’s Law Center. Over three days, participants discussed sexual violence and schools, the military and prisons, along with advocacy, laws, policies, prevention and other topics. Experts said most women still

President Barack Obama meets with U.S. Army Specialist Alek Skarlatos, U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Spencer Stone and Anthony Sadler, the three young Americans who responded heroically on the train in Paris last month, in the Oval Office of the White House on Thursday, Sept. 17, 2015, in Washington, D.C.

Commander-in-chief and Pentagon brass hail trio as ‘very best of America’ James Rosen Lesley Clark

McClatchy Washington Bureau (TNS)

WASHINGTON — America’s top leaders enjoyed a brief respite Thursday from Washington’s grim business of politics and war to salute the three Sacramento, California-area friends who brought down a gunman intent on killing dozens last month on a French train. From the White House on Pennsylvania Avenue to the Pentagon across the Potomac, Airman 1st Class Spencer Stone, Army National Guard Spc. Alek Skarlatos and student Anthony Sadler were hailed as conquering heroes for their concerted bravery Aug. 21 aboard a train bound for Paris from the Netherlands. President Barack Obama smiled broadly as he welcomed the three young men to the Oval Office.

“Because of their courage, because of their quick thinking, because of their teamwork, it’s fair to say that a lot of people were saved and a real calamity was averted,” Obama said. Obama said he had spoken with the three by phone after their heroics last month, but he wanted to see them in person and tell them that they “represent the very best of America (and) American character.” A few hours after the White House session, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter led a celebratory ceremony in the outdoor courtyard of the Pentagon where about 3,000 military and civilian employees repeatedly leaped to their feet to cheer and deliver standing ovations as the three friends’ actions on the train were recounted. On a sun-splashed late summer day, the Army Brass Quintet played the official hymns of each of the military services as soldiers, sailors, airmen and

Marines in the audience sang along. Carter described how Stone, Skarlatos and Sadler tackled and disarmed a Moroccan man who had started shooting after coming out of a train bathroom with an AK-47, a Luger pistol and boxcutters. “It’s an amazing story, right out of a movie, and Alek, Spencer and Anthony have been rightly celebrated on both sides of the Atlantic,” Carter said. Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James pinned a Purple Heart on the chest of Stone, who last month with his two friends received the Legion of Honor, France’s highest award, from President Francois Hollande. At the Pentagon, Stone also received the Airman’s Medal, Skarlatos got the Soldier’s Medal and Sadler was given the Medal of Valor, an honor first bestowed posthumously on the agency’s civilian


Stanford dean steps down after lawsuit, affair allegations Patrick May

San Jose Mercury News (TNS)

After months in the shadows, a high-stakes drama of sex and betrayal among the loftiest echelons of Stanford University burst into the open Monday, as the school announced that Garth Saloner would step down as dean of the Graduate School of Business. The shocking announcement came shortly before a news report linking the South African-born economist to a wrongful termination suit by a former Stanford professor whose wife was allegedly having an affair with Saloner. With salacious details of an office romance, the bitter fallout from the firing and allegations of fear and revenge inside the business school’s inner sanctum, the dean’s resignation could have tongues wagging. “I have decided that it is in the best interests of Stanford and the GSB, two institutions that I love, that I step down,” Saloner, who is widowed, said in an email to the school com-

munity at the start of its academic year. “As many of you know, the university and I have been vigorously defending a baseless and protracted lawsuit related to a contentious divorce between a current and former member of our faculty. I have become increasingly concerned that the ongoing litigation and growing media interest will distract all of you from the important work that you are doing and unfairly impact this stellar school’s deserved reputation.” News of Saloner’s resignation, which takes effect at the end of the current academic year, stunned the Stanford campus where students were unaware of the scandal playing out for months in two Silicon Valley courthouses. Saloner is a well-liked and inspirational leader who expanded Stanford’s educational role around the globe, a gifted fundraiser and brilliant scholar. His topdrawer resume includes a 1977 MBA from his native country’s University of the Witwatersrand as well as assorted degrees from Stanford.

In announcing the departure, Stanford pointed out that the Graduate School of Business had raised over $500 million in private support since Saloner took the helm of the school, a veritable entrepreneur factory regularly minting graduates who quickly command salaries, according to Forbes, of $255,000 a year. The school did not make Saloner available for comment. But Stanford President John L. Hennessy expressed regret over the announcement, praising Saloner for his “very successful tenure.” “We are grateful to Garth for his service and his many contributions as dean, and look forward to his continued contributions to teaching and research at the GSB for many years to come,” Hennessy said of Saloner, who plans to return to his teaching and research as part of the school faculty. The news came just after publication online of a lengthy article by Oakland, Californiabased journalist Ethan Baron in Poets & Quants, a news website devoted to the cover-

age of business schools. In the article, which Baron told the San Jose Mercury News he had been working on since last winter, he presents a long and troubling narrative of marital infidelity, titillating emails and bitter infighting among members of Stanford’s elite business faculty. In the article, headlined “Stanford Confidential: Sex, Lies And Loathing At The World’s No. 1 Business School,” Baron lays out both the bitter divorce of the two Stanford professors at the center of the drama and the firing of one of them that triggered the lawsuit against Saloner and Stanford. From Baron’s opening passage — “Knife. Penis. Town square. Got it.” — the story was surely destined to be a mustread. “Those six words don’t yet mean anything to the 400 MBAs-to-be of storied Stanford Graduate School of Business’s incoming class who rightly believe they have grasped a platinum ticket to the top,” he wrote. “But that will change fast as they strug-

gle to understand why Garth Saloner stepped down today as dean of what is widely regarded as the best b-school in the world.” In his sizzling page-turner, Baron outlines the many moving parts of the scandal. According to court documents, Saloner became romantically involved with Deborah Gruenfeld, a business professor described as “a social psychologist whose research and teaching examine how people are transformed by the organizations and social structures in which they work.” Baron also describes her as a board member of, the organization started by Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg. Gruenfeld’s husband, former Harvard wrestling champ and now terminated Stanford business professor Jim Phills, filed for divorce from her on Dec. 7, 2012, after they had separated in June by what Baron calls “mutual accord.” They have two daughters, now 11 and 14. Phills, 55, and Gruenfeld, 54,

After the French government classified the assault by Moroccan national Ayoub El Khazzani as a terrorist attack, James overruled an earlier Pentagon decision and awarded Stone the Purple Heart. Chief Master Sgt. Tony Johnson, sitting in the crowd at the Pentagon, was among hundreds of Air Force members who wore their dress blues for the ceremony. “I’m very proud of them,” Johnson said of the three heroes. “They put their lives in danger to protect others. That’s what the military is all about. We fight to protect all lives.” Johnson said that Stone, who had his thumb nearly severed and was stabbed in the neck on the train, deserved the Purple Heart. “He was injured in a terrorist at-

ACTIVISTS CONTINUED FROM PAGE 2 hesitate to report sexual assault because of stigma, trauma and fear that their cases will not be properly handled. But in the last four years, the U.S. Department of Education has intensified its pressure on universities to improve reporting by implementing stringent guidelines, issuing record fines and launching investigations of more than 100 campuses for their handling of sexual misconduct cases. Paula Flamm, a University of California, Berkeley social worker, has witnessed the changes in public attitudes and policies toward sexual assault over three decades while working with students at the University Health Center. When she first began, she said, university funding was minimal. Students were more likely to blame themselves for their assaults and very few were willing to report them. Police were reluctant to investigate cases involving alcohol. Today, the university has increased its funding for victim services and strengthened its reporting and investigative processes. Campus officials hold weekly meetings to examine progress in cases and care for students who report assaults, she said, and police have become more proactive. Students are more apt to reject self-blame and seek help, she said. “You can always do better,” Flamm said. “But I think we’re in a much better place and it’s a good time to turn it over to the next generation.” Sandra Henriquez, executive director of the California Coalition Against Sexual Assault, said both the UC and Cal State systems have worked hard to improve their handling of cases. But universities overall are still in an “infantile” stage of progress, she said. Several new programs to combat sexual violence were announced. The U.S. Justice Department is launching a program to award $400,000 grants to eight district attorney’s offices to help make their practices more sensitive toward victims. “With sexual assault, prosecutors may be concerned a jury is not going to convict in cases where alcohol is used,” said Bea Hanson of the department’s Office on Violence Against Women. “We want to look at criminal justice procedures to ... not just focus on prosecuting a winnable case.”

tack,” Johnson said. “I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s considered for an even higher commendation because of all the lives he saved.” When he joined the applause for his friends, Stone clapped his right hand against his left elbow because the hand remains heavily bandaged. After Stone returned to their ranks wearing the Purple Heart, Skarlatos peered at the medal closely and smiled. Sens. Dianne Feinstein of California, and Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkeley of Oregon attended the ceremony along with other lawmakers from the two states. They posed for photographs with the three friends and the Pentagon brass under red, white and blue bunting. “These three local young men are an inspiration to Sacramento County and our country,” said Rep. Ami Bera, an Oak Grove, California, Democrat. “I’m glad to see their brave actions

She also said that Cal State Humboldt and the Shasta-Tehama-Trinity Joint Community College District were two of 27 campus recipients of $8.5 million in new grants to improve their sexual assault services and procedures. California officials touted a new state license plate, “No More,” which will be the nation’s first to raise money specifically for domestic violence and sexual assault awareness and prevention efforts. The biggest announcement involved the NFL’s multiyear, multimilliondollar commitment to help improve sexual assault prevention education, services for both victims and offenders, and other areas. Anna Isaacson, the NFL’s senior vice president of social responsibility, said league officials went on a national tour to learn about the issue after a video emerged last year showing former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee in a casino elevator. “We’re in it for the long haul,” Isaacson said in a phone interview. “We have a lot of fans ... who want the NFL to be giving back.” But progress on the issue was also noted in smaller, less high-profile venues than the football league. San Francisco activist Masaki, for instance, said times have decidedly changed since the early 1980s, when she was called a “race traitor” by some Asian American men who believed sexual assault should stay hidden so as not to bring shame to the community. Her Asian Women’s Shelter began with two staff members and an $80,000 budget in a rented building in 1988. Today, the shelter has 15 staff members, hundreds of volunteers speaking 40 languages, a $1 million annual budget and its own facility. Alva Moreno, an activist in the Latino community for nearly four decades, also noted change. Parents are less likely to force their daughters to wed their attackers to protect the family’s honor, and young women are more likely to speak out. “Forty years ago, it was something you didn’t talk about,” she said. “Today, there’s a new dynamic. Young women have become empowered to speak up.” ©2015 Los Angeles Times. Distributed by Tribune Content Agency.

recognized today in Washington, D.C.” While Carter honored Stone and Skarlatos as military men, he also extolled Sadler. Noting that he is starting classes at Sacramento State University, Carter quipped: “I’m sure he’ll have the best ‘what I did on summer vacation’ story of anybody.” Air Force Gen. Paul Selva, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was among the senior military brass on hand. “It is a privilege to share this stage with three young men who did something about evil,” Selva said. Turning toward the three friends, he added: “Gentlemen, thank you for acting. Thank you for being people who cared enough to make a difference.” All the pomp and circumstance left Stone, Skarlatos and Sadler a bit dazed. “You can’t top meeting the presi-

dent of the United States,” Stone told reporters after the ceremony, quickly adding that dining with former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger had also been a thrill. Skarlatos said of Obama: “He’s a very nice guy.” Stone, who has been in Washington being feted at the national convention of the Air Force Association, said he was incredibly excited to watch Skarlatos’ debut performance earlier this week on “Dancing With the Stars.” “I was in my hotel room going crazy for him,” Stone said. Stone and Skarlatos are childhood pals who grew up next door to each other in Carmichael, Calif. Sadler met them in middle school, and the three became fast friends. “I’m glad that all of this has bonded us forever,” Sadler said as the Pentagon crowd left the courtyard.


for comment, are challenging Phills’ lawsuit, which he brought April 2014. In a statement, Stanford called the case the “unfortunate outgrowth of a lengthy and contentious divorce proceeding involving Dr. Phills and his estranged wife, a member of the faculty. Dr. Phills’ lawsuit falsely claims that he was a victim of discriminatory treatment at Stanford. “Several months after the couple’s separation,” the statement said, “Dr. Phills’ estranged wife and Dean Saloner, who was widowed, began a relationship. The dean informed Stanford leadership at the very beginning of the relationship, and others in the university took responsibility for final decision-making about matters involving Dr. Phills and his wife. At all times Dr. Phills was treated fairly and equitably.” A spokesman for Phills said he was not yet ready to speak publicly about the events surrounding his termination.

had married in 1999, and started at Stanford in 2000, both as organizational behavior professors. “Phills, the professor/husband, was fired April 3, 2014, from his full-time job teaching in the GSB MBA program, with the termination effective June 3 of this year,” the article states. “Phills’ lawsuit was filed a day before he was fired, but court filings indicate the termination had been in process before the lawsuit was filed, suggesting coincidental timing. “In the wrongful termination suit, Phills accuses Saloner of railroading him out of the business school while sleeping with his wife. Saloner and Plaintiff ’s wife Deborah Gruenfeld, who also happens to be Saloner’s subordinate, carried out a clandestine intimate relationship while Saloner was making decisions about Phills’ employment and home loans, Phills’ lawyers claim in a May court filing.” Attorneys for Stanford and Saloner, who could not be reached

LGBT archive preserves stories from a hidden past Hailey Branson-Potts Los Angeles Times (TNS)

LOS ANGELES — The paper is yellowed now, the penciled cursive fading, but the letters from the World War II Women’s Army Corps servicewoman to her sweetheart are romantic as ever. “Good morning, darling. I’m so very used to going to sleep watching you smoke that cigarette (if I’m not in your arms) that I couldn’t sleep.” It was 1944. The writer, a witty young “service gal” stationed in San Bernardino was in love — with another Army woman. “It doesn’t startle me at all,” she wrote to her girlfriend, saying her mother would be shocked if she found out about them. “I know that I need you and want you with me and nothing about it seems remarkable or different. It’s just a fact.” These were not activists or celebrities, just women in love at a time before being openly gay, let alone marriage equality, had achieved broad public acceptance. And that’s exactly why their candid, intimate correspondence is so important, say archivists at the ONE National Gay and Lesbian Archives at the USC Libraries, where their letters are now stored. “They’re not always important people, but they’re important because they

lived in a particular era and they wrote about it,” said Fred Bradford, a retiree and former member of the ONE board of directors. “For a long time the library systems around the world, if they had any books about homosexuality, it was in the abnormal psychology section.” The ONE archive is believed to be the world’s largest collection of LGBT artifacts, including personal items from photo albums and letters to diaries. While the LGBT rights movement has made tremendous strides in recent years, gay history is little known because it was kept out of the history books for so long, said Joseph Hawkins, director of the archive. ONE archivists are working with the Los Angeles Unified School District and the Los Angeles LGBT Center to develop LGBT-inclusive history lessons that will be incorporated into the curriculum in the coming months to comply with the FAIR Education Act, a California law passed in 2011. That law, the first of its kind in the nation, requires public schools to teach about the historic contributions of LGBT people. When it was passed, the Legislature suspended all adoptions of instructional material through eighth grade until 2015. “So many young folks know a lot about marriage equality and about current

struggles, but so few people know about what came before,” said Hawkins, a USC professor of anthropology and gender studies. “It is certainly not because they have been remiss, but because we were denied a history by the American educational system. From the conservative perspective, why teach anyone about the history of deviancy and perversion, which was how the right saw it.” Saving the stories of the past, archivists say, is often a race against time as older gays and lesbians age. But getting them to tell their stories openly remains a challenge. On a recent Saturday, Hawkins stood on the porch of the female World War II veteran who wrote the letters, clutching a voice recorder. It was early morning, hot already, and he had driven more than two hours from Los Angeles to her San Bernardino County home to listen to her stories about her partner of more than 50 years. Now 95, she declined to be named after a lifetime of keeping her true relationship with her partner quiet. They got by, she said, with people just assuming they were “two spinsters with a cat.” Over lunch, Hawkins gently prodded her for details, as he’s been doing for a few years now. Her partner died several years ago, and it was a difficult, monthslong decision to donate their

private letters, she said. For years, they were stuffed in old boxes in the attic. At one point, desperate to keep them private, she burned many of the letters before a trip overseas. Hawkins cringed. But it wasn’t the first time he had heard that. After the death of Don Slater, a founding editor of ONE magazine — a 1950s “magazine for homosexuals” that fought obscenity laws and FBI surveillance and went to the U.S. Supreme Court for the right to distribute through the mail — his bereft partner, Tony Reyes, began hurling records, letters, documents from the magazine and archive’s early days, into the garbage. Hawkins dug them out. Over the years, numerous personal items, such as gay-themed magazines, have been brought to the archive as quiet donations after people’s loved ones died, Hawkins said. “People would come and whisper things like, ‘I found this under Aunt Harriet’s bed and thought you might want it,’” Hawkins said. “I’d tell them, ‘You don’t have to whisper.’ For others, it’s a legacy moment. They feel like if their stuff is here, they’ll live on forever. And some just want to get rid of all of it.” Among the archive’s more than 2 million items housed in a former USC fraternity


Depp is terrific, but ‘Black Mass’ is a mess Colin Covert Star Tribune (TNS)

Can an outstanding performance send people racing to the box office if the role is housed in a lengthy and wearisome movie? “Black Mass” is as promising as they come, with Johnny Depp stepping out of his ho-hum fantasy comedies. As longtime Boston crime lord James “Whitey” Bulger, he is taking on a dense, shady character to show off his chameleon gift. He doesn’t disappoint. Depp is darker here than we have ever seen him, tapping into the demeanor and depravity of a notorious criminal who made it to the top of the FBI’s most wanted list. The leader of the Irish mob, the Winter Hill Gang, Bulger shot, strangled or ordered the execution of dozens of business rivals, adversaries, disobedient cronies and anyone who knows anything about him. Depp re-created himself chillingly for the role. You can’t see his ugly dentures, breathtaking facial makeover

and ice-blue contact lenses without gasping at the change — let’s face it, there’s not a film actor alive who is a bigger fan of character makeup than Depp. But there’s much more. Growling out charm and guile in a South Boston accent, even his conversation feels hellish. Depp brings his A-game to the role, creating a serial killer whose self-satisfied smirk would fit easily into a Martin Scorsese movie. It’s the sort of bombastic, showy turn that can lead a stalled actor needing a career comeback to a meteoric McConnaissance. You watch this kind of acting with a feeling of falling in love again; it’s Depp’s best work since “Donnie Brasco” and a likely Oscar run. Unfortunately, the story surrounding his diabolically evil character is a mess of double-cross mind games. The film follows the period from the mid-1970s to the ‘90s, when Bulger, the brother of a prominent and respected Massachusetts state senator, became an FBI informant to take down the rival Mafia family invading his territory. It follows as that morally

confounding partnership gives him immunity from prosecution and he grows increasingly unhinged. Director Scott Cooper (who guided Jeff Bridges to a best actor Oscar in “Crazy Heart”) fills the opening with surreal shots of carnage that feel like the prelude to a solid underworld movie. For a while it seems as if everyone involved will be working at the peak of their craft. But soon we’re tripping on the script’s interwoven story lines. Screenwriters Mark Mallouk and Jez Butterworth take Whitey through some crucial events, such as the death of his only son at age 6, a loss that turned him against his girlfriend and fatherhood permanently. But too often the film makes bad narrative choices, introducing us to well cast but inessential subsidiary characters. Joel Edgerton gets loads of screen time as FBI detective John Connolly, a Boston native who set up the agency’s alliance with his boyhood pal Bulger, calling him “a top echelon informant”

ISU offers free art and music class for children with special needs The Indiana State University Community School of the Arts is offering Literacy and Music for Kids with Special Needs to children in grades kindergarten through fifth. Classes provide a fun way to supplement children’s education while adding art and music. Sessions run 1-2 p.m. Saturdays Sept. 26 to Dec. 5 in room 8A of the Bayh College of Education, 401 North Seventh St. Handwriting Without Tears is a fun way for pre-writers and emerging writers to enjoy beginning literacy efforts. This course is multisensory (music, play dough, wooden pieces, slate boards and stamps) and includes a kinesthetic component. Class will focus on presenting the capital alphabet in such a way that students can learn through play as well as physical and sensory experiences. Fine motor skills are often very difficult for kids with physical disabilities and kids on the spectrum, so instructors are prepared to adapt the lessons to children’s needs. Supervised by professors Margaret Ladyman and Sharon Boyle, music, art and occupational therapy student instructors will lead the class. This program is a collaboration between Indiana State University’s Community School of the Arts and occupational therapy program and the Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College music therapy program. It is made possible through the assistance of the McCarthy Endowment, Indiana State University Foundation. The Bayh College of Education is wheelchair accessible. Classes and parking are free of charge. To register or for more information, call the Community School of the Arts at 812237-2528. Early registration is advised, as enrollment is limited to 20 students. Caregivers are encouraged to attend. Story by ISU Communications and Marketing

Halloween fundraiser party to support summer art programs Jamina Tribbett ISU Communications and Marketing

The Community School of the Arts at Indiana State University is hosting its first annual Harvest Scream Halloween Fundraiser party Oct. 30 to raise money for children to attend the organization’s summer arts programs. The ‘70s and ‘80s retro dance party themed fundraiser at the Red Barn, 5001 Poplar St., is open to ages 18 and older to support the artistic education and expression of young children. “Art programs help children’s self-esteem and boosts their confidence,” said Petra Nyendick, director of the Community School of the Arts. “These classes assist them in developing creative problem-solving skills, essential tools that are used throughout daily life.” The Community School of the Arts is the only comprehensive arts educational outreach of its kind in Indiana and one of a very few in the United States, providing residents of the Wabash Valley the opportunity to participate in non-credit classes in music, dance, theater and visual art. The organization offers more than 44 summer classes for children. Classes range from ceramics to African drumming to theater. The Halloween party begins at 7:30 p.m. and will feature music by DJ Thomas, door prizes, a raffle and catering and cash bar by The Butler’s Pantry Food Co. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Bought in quantities of 20 or more, the ticket price is $20. This event will offer adults an opportunity to dress up in their best Halloween costumes and have fun for a good cause. Prior to the fundraising event, the Community School of the Arts is offering an opportunity for youngsters to enjoy themselves, too. Children will be able to participle in mask making, a cakewalk, a photo opportunity and free candy. The children’s portion is free and will be held 5:30-7 p.m. at the Red Barn. “As funding for arts programming is being cut nationwide, there is an increasing need for quality arts education. Often, children are not exposed to the arts at school and due to financial circumstances, children and teens from low-income families are at greatest risk to be excluded from arts programming offered at institutions and centers outside the public school system,” Nyendick said. Last summer, the Community School of the Arts awarded $2,500 in scholarships to children who wanted to attend a music, theater, dance or visual art class. Assistance was awarded to students who receive free or reduced-lunch plans at school. To purchase tickets for the Halloween fundraiser, call 812-237-2528 or go to

It’s a shame to lose an A-lister like Miller, but the film’s version of Bulger has no visible libido, and the project is already crushed by excessive cast footnotes. It would have been nice for the film to tell us what made Bulger a mad dog. It hints that his beloved mother was no saint and mentions his volunteering for multiple LSD tests while in prison in the 1950s, but digging deeper into his background would have made this evil mystery man clearer. More interesting. Less monotonous. “Black Mass” is the sort of gangland film you would call run of the mill, if only it dashed faster.

Relax and rejuvenate with a good book I used to think reading was more of a chore than a hobby, much like I used to think my vegetables were nasty green vermin taunting me from my plate. However, as you grow you Columnist learn. Those vegetables are now nutrientpacked morsels of delight that run scarce in the dining hall, and I find myself craving a good read more often than not. Now, books are fantastic and I’ll take steamed broccoli any day. So let me take a moment to thank college for truly making me appreciate the little things in life. Recently I’ve discovered the escape of a good read, one that pulls you in and charms the pants off of your intrigue. It’s more than the smutty drama from a juicy magazine or a laugh from the BuzzFeed article on your timeline. It’s a matter of taking time out of your own crazy life to dive into a story, fictional or not, and stay there for a while. The characters become your friends, your enemies and you find yourself cheering for them in each chapter and missing them when you reach the end. Depending on your interests, certain authors may appeal to you. If you crave mysteries that throw cliffhanger after cliffhanger in your face, you should check out the work of Harlan Coben. He’s your guy for passionate work and mysterious intrigue. Just when you think you know the story he flips it on its head and throws a new vantage point in your face that leaves you more confused than before. With the continuous quick wit, all that I have read have kept me on my toes and have also been finished in roughly three or four days. Similarly, Sandra Brown is another great read. Any of her novels have a gripping storyline with a mixture of romance and daring adventure. While these are two of my favorites, there are many more that appeal to the masses. Fire up your Kindle or get the realdeal hard copy, and relax. There are a few reasons why I find joy in casual reading. First and foremost, no one is forcing me to do it. I am not being as-

Kirstyn Quandt

signed 40 pages to read in one night and asked to take notes over the major themes. Instead, I am able to curl up with a blanket and relax my mind while exploring the life, struggles and achievements of someone else. As a junior in college this is a big thing. Not only are internship applications, scholarship deadlines and the fear of graduating in one year creeping up, but you also have the day-today stress of homework and everything else you’ve managed to volunteer for. Maybe we should find a book on how to say no, just some food for thought. Regardless, there are times when I need a break, times when a nap isn’t the answer and when reality becomes so frustrating that I need to transport my mind elsewhere for the sake of my dwindling sanity. The next plus when it comes to reading is that you can tailor your choices to your mood. Action, mystery, romance or thriller, each book is unique in its style and intrigue. Whatever your mood or taste, there is a book for you. When you’ve had a bad day and all you want is to read about a sweet puppy loving his family, pick up “The Art of Racing in the Rain” told from the perspective of a young pooch and your heart will be warmed with love and family. And finally, reading builds a repertoire of knowledge. Although it may sound silly, when you have read countless stories of young women faced with life-altering decisions and you observe secondhand how they handle it, your brain stores away the information. Although they are not your own lived experiences, if you are ever faced with something similar, it pulls on this information and you have a base to reference when you make your own choices. While they may differ greatly, they may also give great insight into handling yourself with class and dignity. My challenge to all of you is to view reading in a different light — preferably a strong one so you don’t hurt your eyes. Approach it not with the disgust created from boring reads in high school government class, but with the excitement to read of adventure and romance. Sometimes, the brief escape from the chaos of your own life is just what you need to gather yourself and keep on keeping on.

The Columbus Dispatch

Republicans threaten to shut down the governmet again Wednesday, the second Republican debate was broadcast on CNN. This was the second chance that candidates had to convince the nation that they would be a good choice Columnist for president. Many important issues were discussed, including the ironically named Center for Medical Progress’s heavily edited videos “exposing” Planned Parenthood for doing nothing illegal. The Center for Medical Progress went undercover with the guise of a fraudulent research group trying to obtain fetal tissue from Planned Parenthood for research. In the course of conversations lasting several hours each, they recorded videos in secret, which were then edited down to videos lasting around ten minutes. These videos claim that Planned Parenthood sells body parts, which is illegal. The issue is, however, that Planned Parenthood does not sell body parts. They make no money on fetal tissue donations. As a result of these deceptively edited videos, the Republican candidates this election have run on the idea that it would be nice to completely defund Planned Parenthood, even though no federal money goes to abortion at all. Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina gave perhaps the most impassioned argument for defunding Planned Parenthood. She dared President Obama or potential Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton to “watch a fully

Joe Lippard

formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking, while someone says, ‘We have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.’” The issue with Fiorina’s dare to Obama and Clinton, however, is that, out of all the hours of “sting” videos on Planned Parenthood, the part that Fiorina said to watch doesn’t exist. We have video footage of someone saying that the supposed incident involving harvesting a live baby’s brain happened, but we have no footage of a fetus laying on a table with a beating heart while someone talks about harvesting its brain. Just because someone says something happened doesn’t mean it did. The argument to defund Planned Parenthood has been gaining traction among Republican politicians, so much so that quite a few of them have threatened to shut down the government if Planned Parenthood isn’t defunded. Now, let’s think about this logically for a second. Recently, the House of Representatives had a hearing to decide whether or not to defund Planned Parenthood. The catch? Planned Parenthood wasn’t even allowed at the hearing. So not only are members of Congress believing what a fraudulent research company says in heavily edited videos, but they aren’t even allowing Planned Parenthood to defend itself. Also, why are Republicans threatening a government shutdown? They’re doing it because an organization made a series of propaganda videos about an organization they don’t like? Is this the new tactic to get what members of Congress want in politics? Any time they don’t like what the other party is doing, are they just going to shut down the government?

Planned Parenthood provides a little more than 300,000 abortions per year; about 3 percent of their services are abortions while the other 97 percent of their services include contraception, cancer screenings, vaccinations and — their largest percentage of operations — Sexually transmitted disease testing. Planned Parenthood provides over 10 times more STD tests than abortions. When abortions take place, patients can decide to donate the fetal tissue to scientific research companies for research on vaccines and other important medical advancements. Associated with this research is the cost of transportation and storage of the tissue. The money that Planned Parenthood asks for is to reimburse them for these costs. They make no money on the tissue donations; rather, they break even. Laws concerning fetal tissue donation forbid making a profit on tissue donation, but do not forbid asking for compensation for costs incurred by the organization for storage and shipping. After watching the unedited footage of these controversial “sting” videos, it becomes clear that, while perhaps a bit brash at times, Planned Parenthood is doing nothing illegal. They provide important health and reproductive services, not only for women, but for men as well. Abortions are a small part of what they do, and when they do them, taxpayers don’t even pay for them. And they don’t sell body parts; the tissue is donated from the patients after the procedure takes place. It’s just ridiculous to think that members of Congress might shut down the government because of one anti-abortion organization’s lies.

America needs a president who knows their stuff As the election slowly creeps closer, people are learning more about the presidential potentials. The candidates are showing their true colors and what their intentions are when they become president. But as we get to know what they are like it is important to think about what this country needs in Columnist our next president. First and foremost, we need someone who can unite the people again with so many issues driving people apart because of race, religion, sexual orientation and many other things. That isn’t how a country should be; as a country we need to be united. After all, it’s in our country’s name. We can’t better ourselves if we keep fighting each other. Much like Franklin Roosevelt did with his fireside chats, the president should encourage us. They should be able to calm the people if a

Zachery Davis

tragedy happens and reassure them in hard times. The president needs to unite the citizens against our true enemies and not fight silly, useless wars. We need someone who is charismatic. Not caring what people think isn’t charisma, it’s ignorance. The next president needs to be able to find compromises for issues we will face in the future. They need to help put an end to the unrest this country is facing so we can be united. The president needs to have correct charisma to fix the social issues the country will face. Right now we are arguing about gay marriage and racial equality. We are fighting about police brutality and sexism. The president needs to be able to put an end to these issues and show everyone that people are all equal in this country, that our constitution is written to protect that equality. We need someone who can help get our budget under check. Right now our spending is so messed up that it is becoming extremely difficult to fix. We need a president who can push for more

reserved spending or maybe a new economic idea. It is important that we get our budget balanced. Even if the debt is reduced to a manageable amount then it can be more easily fixed in the future. The president needs to be economical. We need a president who is informed. The president needs to know what is going on in the world so they can make the right decisions. They need to have their facts right. Making a factual claim when the facts are not correct will only cause problems. If information is incorrect then the president can’t help. If the problems aren’t fixed then we will only continue to spiral farther out of control until the country is unfixable. We need a president who will make the right decisions for the whole country. A good decision should help the country and its people, not help only a handful. A good decision will have positive effects in both the short and long term for most, if not all, of the country. All citizens should be able to benefit and live a happier life from the policies

and decisions that occur. The president needs to make living accessible for everyone. The president needs to have a plan that makes living a right for everyone. Everyone has the right to be alive, just as everyone as the right to live well. The president needs to be able to amend the system so that everyone has access to a happy life and poor people are able to survive reasonably. Our next president shouldn’t be like an old one. The times are different and using old methods won’t have the same effect. We need a president who will do something new, something that will work. They need to unite the people and keep us happy in times of strife. They need to know what’s going and be ready to do something about it. We need a president who can do all of this. None of these are optional; they are all necessary. Our president is the leader of our nation and should be able to act like one. So as you watch the debates and as you get ready to vote, keep in mind the million-dollar question: who can satisfy the requirements of the president?

Women’s soccer prepares for a weekend road trip

Friday, Sept. 18, 2015 Page designed by Sarah Hall

Adler Ingalsbe Reporter After winning back-to-back home games against in-state rival Butler University and Eastern Illinois University, the Indiana State University women’s soccer team fell to the University of Tulsa and Oral Roberts University in the Spectrum Paint Tulsa Invitational this past weekend. The Sycamores look to get back to their winning ways when they head to the Windy City to take on Chicago State University at Ray and Joan Kroc Stadium for a Friday matinee match that begins at 2 p.m. followed by a Sunday contest at nearby Valparaiso at 2 p.m. The Sycamores go into the game with a 3-5 overall record, while the Chicago State Cougars have yet to win a match and have a record of 0-7. Statistically, the matchup is quite lopsided and in favor of Indiana State. The Sycamores have scored 11 goals on the season and are averaging just over a goal per game. The Cougars have yet to see a ball hit the back of the net. ISU has given up a mere 16 goals, while Chicago State has seen a whopping 42 goals go in the net. The Valparaiso Crusaders, who also play a game on Friday, have a record of 2-3-2, but have yet to win a game at home. Valparaiso is led by junior April Cronin who leads the team with four goals. Senior Rita Craven has put in three goals of her own. Unlike Indiana State, who has only had Brittany San Roman in goal, the Crusaders have had two different keepers start games and combine for 33 saves, which is well short of San Roman’s 58 saves. While Valpo has only scored eight goals on the season, they’re taking a little over 14 shots on goal per game. Meanwhile, the Sycamores continue to find themselves in the upper half of the Missouri Valley Conference’s major statistical categories. The ISU women currently lead the conference in saves, are third in points, shutouts and goals and rank fourth in shots, goals per game, assists and assists per game. The strong play has led to a few of the Sycamores finding their names on lists for numerous awards. Senior captain Sydney Lovelace and junior Maddie Orf were named to the Spectrum Paint All-Tournament Team for their games in the Spectrum Paint Tulsa Invitational. Sophomore Kasey Wallace was named the Missouri Valley Conference Defensive Player of the Week for the week of Sept. 2 through Sept. 9. Lovelace, who was named the MVC Scholar-Athlete of the Week in late August, was also named the conference’s Offensive Player of the Week from Sept. 2 through Sept. 9.

ISU Communications and Marketing

Last week ISU went up against Purdue and now are preparing to go up against the Southeast Missouri State Redhawks this weekend.

Sycamores look to bounce back against SEMO Zach Rainey Reporter Coming off their loss to Purdue, the Sycamores look to get back on track this weekend as they get ready to take on the Southeast Missouri State Redhawks at Memorial Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Redhawks dropped their first contest to their in-state rival Missouri in week one 34-3 but were able to even their record last week in a 27-24 win over Southern Illinois. Southeast Missouri was able to force seven Saluki turnovers in the contest, turning two of them into touchdowns, and then won on a last-second field goal by kicker Ryan McCrum. Protecting the ball will be crucial for the Sycamores, who struggled in that department a week ago against the Boilermakers. On the offensive side of the football, senior receiver Paul McRoberts leads the Redhawks. McRoberts has eight tallied eight catches for 91 yards and a touchdown on the season and is just five touchdowns away from being the Redhawks’ all-time leader in touchdown receptions.

He is already the school’s all-time leader in receiving yards with 2,543 yards. Their rushing attack isn’t too shabby either, as starting running back Demichael Jackson is fourth in the FCS in rushing with 243 yards so far on the season, 186 of which he rushed for against the Salukis. He is currently on pace to finish the season with over 1,300 yards. He’ll get the ball early and often against the Sycamores. Quarterback Tay Bender will likely keep the Sycamore offense on their toes, as he is one of the FCS’s top dualthreat quarterbacks. Against the Salukis, he managed to pick up 159 yards through the air and 60 yards on the ground. Junior safety Eriq Moore is the leader on the defensive side. On the season, he’s recorded an interception as well as forced a fumble, which resulted in a recovery. He also has 11 solo tackles in two games. Sophomore cornerback Mike Ford looked impressive in last week’s contest as well, picking off two passes as part of the seven turnovers the defense forced. The injury bug bit the Sycamores

once again last Saturday in West Lafayette. Running back LeMonte Booker left with a sprained knee and was seen on crutches following the Purdue contest while all-conference safety Mark Sewall broke his ankle and is doubtful until the latter part of the year. Booker is a gametime decision on Saturday. That leaves much of the offensive load on quarterback Matt Adam, who despite struggling in the air last Saturday, managed yards on the ground on scrambles out of the pocket. Adam is currently 11th in the country in rushing yards by a quarterback. With Booker sidelined and backfield backups Roland Genesy and Marlon Fleming getting the load, Adam and his receiving corps could be expected to pick up any slack through the air. The Redhawks hold the lead in the all-time series 4-3 but that could change on Saturday. The Sycamores are ranked in the top 25 for the 13thstraight week and will continue setting the record for every week they stay ranked. The game kicks off at 2:05 p.m. at Memorial Stadium. Audio is available on 95.9 WDKE and 90.7 WZIS. Video is available through GoSycamores. com.

Sycamore volleyball set for ISU Classic

Megan Veeneman Reporter This weekend Indiana State Volleyball takes on the Western Illinois Leathernecks, the Chicago State Cougars and the Valparaiso Crusaders in the ISU Classic tournament, which will take place in the ISU Arena. The Sycamores will play on Friday night against the Leathernecks who are 2-9 on the season. Both Western Illinois wins came in a tournament at Evansville this past weekend. The team lost to Northern Kentucky and Evansville, but won against Jackson State and Drake. Some

of the key players for WIU are Peyton Crosser, Abby Skyrd and Kali Simmons. Crosser is a senior outside hitter who has 100 kills, one assist and 85 digs. Skyrd is a freshman setter and has done extremely well for being her first year. This season Skyrd has 317 assist, 11 kills and 59 digs. Simmons is the junior libero, or defensive specialist, and has racked up 129 digs, one kill and eight assists. ISU will then compete against the Cougars on Saturday afternoon. Chicago State is currently 0-10. The last tournament CSU played was the Georgia Southern Tournament and fell against

Green Bay, Winthrop, Tennessee State and Georgia State. Key players for the Cougars are Eli Woinowsky, Corey Davis and Shontanae Addison. Woinowsky is a junior outside hitter from Berlin, Germany. This season, Woinowsky has recorded 87 kills, eight assists and 56 digs. Davis is a sophomore setter, and has stepped up to the plate this season and has obtained 236 assists, 22 kills and 64 digs.
