Update your Cyclone style by dealing into Homecoming Heritage

The 100 years of celebration and tradition comes to a culmination with this year’s Cytennial Homecoming. Samuel Beyer, an ISU professor in 1912, brought the first Homecoming to Iowa State as a celebration of alumni. The celebration would be the same week as the football game against rival University of Iowa. The football team lost to Iowa 20-7 in this first game and did not win a homecoming game until 1917 against Kansas State. With more than 150 alumni returning that first year, the event was labeled a success and the tradition continued. Iowa State is known as one of the first schools to hold such an event centered on pride and tradition. The first ISU Homecoming pep rally

As online exams increase, Carver reaches capacity Fewer students utilize Gilman’s testing center By Rachel.Sinn Despite having the same resources and technology, the online testing center location in Gilman has been largely underutilized, said Doug Bull, testing center coordinator. While the Carver Hall online testing center has always brought lines of students to take their proctored exams, a second location in Gilman has so far received little attention this year. “I think there are going to continue to be changes, one thing I’m certain about is there will be more usage of these types of [online testing] facilities,” Bull said. “I suspect that eventually there will have to be an additional location beyond the two that we have, maybe even a fourth

Sharika Soal ‘Got Talent’ TV competition offers audition to Ames singer

By Cole.Komma and Julia.Ferrell The blues could be back to the forefront with a local voice leading the charge. Sharika “Soal” Sawer of well-known, now dissolved, Iowa band, Ladysoal, has been offered a chance to audition for NBC’s hit show “America’s Got

Talent.” “I’ve always wanted to go on a show or do something crazy,” Sawer said. “I don’t have the courage to go on American Idol because I don’t want to go by myself.” Getting this opportunity turned out to be fairly simple for Sawer. She submitted a video of one of the band’s previous live performances, along with a music video. “I saw the email today and it just said: ‘We’re offering you a judges’ slot,’” Sawer

Correction: In Friday’s article about the GSB Executive Initiative Account, we stated the account originally received attention when Finance Director Arjay Vander Velden “pointed out that some of the purchases made with the account might not have been audit compliant.” Actually, the account came into question when Vander Velden pointed out some of the bylaws might not have been audit compliant. Furthermore, the original headline said GSB will vote on Knight’s bylaws veto next week. However, GSB already voted for Knight’s veto. Next week, GSB will vote on bylaws governing the account. The Daily regrets the errors.

petition between houses. The popularity decreased over the next few years but was made popular again by one fraternity in an effort to keep the tradition alive. This effort led to what is now the competition between greek pairings, judged by ISU faculty and alumni. Beginning in 1912, the Homecoming dance was one of the most festive and anticipated events in the 1930s. Here, more than 4,000 students danced the night away while listening to live bands, including Louis Armstrong in 1950, and announcements of who won Homecoming Queen and the lawn display winner. Another lost tradition is the class break, which started the first year when the ISU president canceled classes Friday and Saturday of that year’s homecoming. Throughout the years, this tradition was lost and brought back various years by student demand until it disappeared completely. Through all of these traditions and celebrations, a consistent effort is to bring alumni back to their alma mater. In 1932, the Alumni Association was created for charitable and educational purposes. Today, the Alumni Center serves as a “home away from home” for members of the ISU family. Kurt Beyer, assistant director for student programs and student alumni leadership counselor, is entering this year’s Homecoming busier than he has ever been in his six years working with the event. “Every year, Homecoming gets bigger and better,” Beyer said. “I can definitely say this is the biggest year yet.”

>>HOMECOMING.p1A was in 1912 in the auditorium in Curtiss Hall, which is a tradition that continues today. The pep rally evolved into a barbecue called “Hamburgers for Homecoming” in 1930 with approximately 3,000 in attendance. Pep rally traditions that have lasted throughout the years include football coaches and players giving speeches, Yell Like Hell finals, and performances from the ISU Dance Team, cheerleaders and Cy. Les Laske, 47, is an alumnus who has revisited Homecoming multiple times since his 1986 graduation. Laske was part of the Phi Kappa Theta fraternity and distinctly remembers his favorite parts of Homecoming. “The barbecues at the [fraternity’s] house, the tailgating and the football games were always my fondest parts of Homecoming,” Laske said. “I always enjoy coming back to see the students’ love for the school. The atmosphere of campus is unmatched.” Banner contests, food on campus and lawn displays are a few of the traditions that help to create this atmosphere. Lawn displays are one of the few traditions that have been key to Homecoming events from the very first year. The first lawn display appeared during the first ISU Homecoming in 1912. Engineering students created an electric sign, 55 feet long and 20 feet high, that read “Beat Iowa, Eat Iowa.” The displays moved from the streets of Ames, to the campus residence, to a com-

said. “They don’t know what city yet, but whatever city they pick is the one I’ll have to go to. Sawer said she could travel to any city and audition from the base level, which would not guarantee getting on TV. Instead, Sawer said she would most likely take the judges’ slot, if she decides to accept the offer. Bryon Dudley, lead singer and guitar player for local band, Strong Like Bear, said Sawer deserves this opportunity. “I think it’s an amazing opportunity,” Dudley said. “Sharika works her butt off and I can think of no one more deserving of it than her.” Recently, however, Sawer has gone through some drastic developments in her music career, and she said she is still considering the opportunity carefully. Ladysoal, the band in which Sawer is the lead singer, has dissolved. Sawer noted the disbanding of Ladysoal had nothing to do with any

>>TESTING.p1A Bull hopes to see an improved interface developed to incorporate written work. “There’s not a real good interface to allow students to enter mathematical equations and symbols,” Bull said. “So I suspect at some point we’re going to find something better that allows us to plug in a pad or something that people can write on and that then would interface online.” For language courses like Spanish, Bull hopes to have computer setups that allow recorded answers if the exam is verbal. With so many options available Bull said he’s unsure of where it will end. Benefits of online testing can range widely for students and teachers. “I look at it more as a benefit for the student. If you’re not spending an hour of time in class taking an exam, that hour can be used for instructional purposes,” Bull said. “That’s kind of a value added to your tuition dollar.” Erin Wilgenbusch, senior lecturer of the Greenlee School of Journalism and Communication, uses online tests for her large classes in order to cut back on schedule conflicts for students. “If you’ve got 400 students in a class and 50 of them have things that come up, which is realistic; that sounds crazy but realistically 50 people will have something come up and then you’ve got to schedule make up exams for 50 people. That’s just crazy,” Wilgenbusch said. Wilgenbusch also enjoys the ability to schedule a test to be open for a week when it might occur during a busy testing cycle for students. “The other reason is, large section classes it’s very hard to ensure the academic integrity,” Wilgenbusch said. “You can’t watch 400 people to make sure they’re not cheating on the test.” With proctored exams in the online testing centers, professors can create large question pools so each stu-

members of the band. Sawer’s decision about whether or not to take this leap has many factors. Her 3-year-old son, Jacob, has proved to be the largest. “That’s been a big decision with everything that’s happened over the last few years,” Sawer said. “I have this kid who’s getting older. In a year and a half, he’s going to have to go to kindergarten. ... Whatever I’m doing, I have to speed it up.” Although nothing is set in stone, Sawer is traveling to Los Angeles this week to consider this prospect. This break could potentially gain Sawer national recognition. “I’m just in this very transitional part of my life. I’m close to 30 and I have a 3-year-old child,” Sawer said. “What I want to do is do something like go on ‘America’s Got Talent,’ for the exposure, I want to be bigger than just a band that’s known in the central Iowa area, which I feel good about where we’re at, but it’s not paying my bills or anything. I’m ready for a more concrete career.”

dent will have a different test. The only complaint Wilgenbusch has is on the part of the student. “I find that probably usually 70 to 80 percent of the students don’t take the test until Thursday or Friday,” Wilgenbusch said. If an issue arises in the testing center, students are at risk for not completing the test on time, before the center automatically shuts down at 8:30 p.m. Eric Wilson, junior in computer science, prefers written exams to using the testing centers. “Online tests, I always feel like there’s a little bit more pressure to get done,” he said. “The entire online testing environment, the signs posted around saying there’s cameras and everything kind of weirds me out a bit. “I always feel like if I hit the submit button, I’m locked in, with a test I like going back over it and flipping through the pages. Online tests, you can still go through the questions but it’s a little bit different.” Wilson admits he had no idea that the Gilman Hall testing center existed. Alyssa Peirce, junior in mathematics, was aware of the Gilman testing center but admits she didn’t know much about it. “Teachers should probably emphasis [the Gilman testing center] more so that way Carver isn’t as overwhelmed,” Peirce said. The new Gilman testing center is located on the second floor in room 2552. “Everybody is so used to coming [to Carver Hall], there will be lines coming out the door and there’s nobody in Gilman,” Bull said. “There’s like maybe four or five people over in Gilman.” Bull recommends that if a student is trying to take a test at Carver and the lines are long, to try walking to Gilman instead. “Rather than standing in line for 30 minutes, just walk over to Gilman and take your test,” Bull said.

Homecoming is a chance to participate Homecoming is in the air. The leaves are almost done changing and falling, the weather is getting less bipolar and moving toward a steady pattern of cold and crisp, and the energy of Cyclone Nation is beginning to buzz with all the excitement homecoming brings to our campus. But homecoming week is much more than cheap food on campus, a football game and lots of booze; it’s a chance for students to partake in activities unique to Iowa State that they may not get another chance to partake in. Our campus practically busts at the seams during homecoming week with all the activities, events, freebies and excitement that is offered to students. Clubs, organizations and the greek community do an excellent job of being involved and very prominent on campus during homecoming week. But their involvement also brings a misconception to a lot of students that you have to be president of a club or a member of a greek house to be a part of all those fun, and sometimes outrageous, events. That statement is not only false, but it can be detrimental to engaging in the full ISU experience to those who choose to believe it. Fellow Cyclones, we encourage you to step out of your box this homecoming week. Open your eyes, listen up and participate in the shenanigans taking place. Campus will be much more relaxed this week, and take advantage of it. Forget about your normal routine of laying low and attempting to be studious. Instead, wander into campus and watch a Yell-Like-Hell competition, take a tour around the greek houses and check out the lawn displays, get a team together and compete in one of the many competitive tournaments, buy one of those corny buttons for $5 and get really cheap lunch on Central Campus every day. If competition and good food isn’t your thing, then give back to the community this week. Homecoming is a great time to represent your Cyclone pride all over the place, and that includes showing it through community service. Volunteer at a local business, help with cleanup at Jack Trice after the game; be a positive reflection of the school you stand for wherever you can. Have fun this week, let your guard down, and feel like a kid again. Homecoming week is about Iowa State pride and enjoying the university we have the privilege of attending. Don’t let this week slip by without participating in these fun activities that only come once a year. Make the most of your experience at Iowa State, don’t just sit around and let it all pass you by.

Food sovereignty serves us all O

n Monday in the Sun Room of the Memorial Union, George Naylor, Iowa farmer and former president of the National Family Farm Coalition, delivered the 2012 Food Sovereignty Prize to Jeomok Bak and Junkyoung Lee, representatives of the Korean Women Peasant’s Association. The award was given for their work in native seed preservation, community linking, and activism. Following the presentation of the prize, a panel consisting of Naylor, Bak and Tristan Quinn-Thibodeau, of the NGO WhyHunger answered questions from attendees, following an exposition about the importance of food sovereignty across the world. According to the website of the Food Sovereignty Prize, food sovereignty is a “bottom up” approach that best serves the common people, whose livelihoods depend on their production of crops. It is meant to do more than simply ensure access to food but, rather, the use of food production as a means of exercising free choice. Likewise, explains that food sovereignty is based on “common-sense” principles that are more sustainable, empowering and culturally integrated in the communities where it is exercised. This would entail a shift in the status quo, effectively promoting forms of subsistence farming, as opposed to agricultural

By Gabe.Garcia-Merritt operations that do not necessarily have the local community’s best interests in mind, and which have been historically supported by the World Bank, International Monetary Fund or the World Trade Organization, and other organisms through development aid that promotes industrialization of agriculture. When speaking at the award ceremony, Quinn-Thibodeau pointed out that while the concept of “Food Security” (the availability of food to populations around the world) exists in many places, food sovereignty does not. He points out that 1 billion people across the world don’t get enough food, another 1 billion have food but don’t get enough micronutrients, and that yet another 1 billion receive both food and micronutrients, but the food they receive is unhealthy and is associated with various diseases. Of these approximately 3 billion people, half are farmers, and half of those are rural workers. Quinn-Thibodeau argues that food sovereignty would alleviate this burden on many of the people which suffer the conditions he described. So, is food sovereignty possible in American communities? Naylor believes it is “more people around the world work [in agriculture] in cooperatives than in corporations.” The groundwork

for food sovereignty exists (in the form of cooperative groups, seed saving, and other forms of traditional or “alternative” agriculture), according to him, and we (as individuals and communities), simply need to shift the existing mindsets away from creating massive amounts of single crops, towards a more diversified agricultural base. Further, Naylor contends that food sovereignty promotes democracy, as it strives to empower citizens to make important decisions regarding food production, and could lead to increased community ties and political involvement from communities that might otherwise not be as politically organized. Food sovereignty is a reaction to unfair or poorly executed (even with the best intentions, unintended consequences exist for any action) industrialized farming practices, such as monoculture, large scale greenhouse operations and genetically modified seeds for increased yields, among others. It stands as a promotion of sustainable and socially just farming and policy that would be beneficial to farmers, their families and their communities. Choosing the crops they grow instead of being left no alternative but to implement methods of farming that are foreign, expensive and in many cases unnecessary, would alleviate economic and work burdens that are consequences of the importa-

tion of methods and crops that are alien to the regions they inhabit. Food sovereignty would enable someone in Colombia or Ethiopia, to have a sense of purpose; their land would be farmed in the ways that they deem most appropriate. Using the methods they know, with crops they are familiar with, they might be able to produce enough to feed their families or to sell to someone in the cities of their nation. This would be their choice, and they would pursue it, rather than being given no resort but to farm in a manner that is said to be the best. The main questions that food sovereignty seems to present is: “Who says that the current methods of agriculture are the best? Who are they really the best for?” By empowering local communities to choose their futures, it gives a sense of control, a sense of hope and the skills to implement lasting change for the future. A future where a farmer will be able to continue farming the crops that their parents or grandparents might have farmed. Or not; the choice would be theirs, because food sovereignty would have enabled them to decide for themselves instead of forcing them out of necessity to go in one direction or another.

Letters to the editor

Heddens helps us all GSB places When I saw a letter in the Daily a few days back mentioning the name of our State Rep. Lisa Heddens, I got very excited. She is someone who has been serving Iowa for a decade now. Unfortunately, the letter was quite anti-Heddens. As I read on, its author, Ben Ashland, started to stray so far from the facts, I half expected him to accuse Heddens of being Herky the Hawk in disguise. It was said in the letter that “the truth will out.” It just wasn’t mentioned you had to wait a few more days. So much of what Heddens stands for and represents was grossly distorted. She was portrayed as out of touch. Here’s the truth: Heddens is an ISU graduate. Her daughter graduated from ISU less than a year ago. I’m sure she can remember what she paid for her own education and what her daughter’s cost is today. The cost of education isn’t unknown to her, but I would hate to imagine where it would be without people like her fighting to keep it from rising or to slow the pace in which it has risen over the years. She speaks to students, teachers and local business leaders. She’s not an out of touch politician; she’s our neighbor who lives here in Ames. For those of you who grew up here, you may already know her well. For those of us simply passing through Ames on our adventure through college, she’s fighting for us all the while. Ashland stated Heddens has fought

Republicans who supposedly fought valiantly to give more funding to the regents. The truth is the Republicans in the Iowa House introduced a bill including a $31 million cut in funding to the Regents. Lisa, knowing that would be devastating for students here, voted no. Ashland was right: She’s fighting Republicans, but fighting to save our school and keep our tuition low, not the other way around. I don’t know where the author got the idea Republicans are trying to help the university. Perhaps, he’s just trying to fit facts into an ideology. The conservatives in the House directly voted to stop funding for the ISU Research Park, one-third of which consists of student employees. Try fitting that into the farce that they’re on our side. Hedden’s achievements go so far beyond just campus. She’s worked actively in causes of health care, assisting those with disabilities and infrastructure investment that helps make Iowa safe. We’re Cyclones here. We should be honest with each other about who will best serve us as students. We shouldn’t mislead one another and distort facts in order to win politically. That’s something a secret Hawkeye fan would do.

ISU alumna fights for students’ rights Why students should support Beth Wessel-Kroeschell? In the media flurry of the presidential debates and advertisements and daily barrage of presidential endorsements, it can be hard to see people down the ticket. So I would like to take this space to lend my support to Rep. Beth Wessel-Kroeschell, representing our very own District 45 in the Iowa House of Representatives. To preface, I am a student at Iowa State, someone who cares deeply about my own education and who cares deeply about the state of our university and public education systems, and as a former English teacher, Wessel-Kroeschell is someone who understands and has fought for better education in our state and in our district. Also, Wessel-Kroeschell understands the Ames community and the ISU community, because she, herself, is a native Cyclone, born and raised in Ames, a graduate of Ames High. Wessel-Kroeschell cares about women, having worked on a nonprofit women’s shelter and the chair of the Story County Equal Rights Amendment and feels women should

have the same rights and access to education and opportunity. She believes all women should have the right to a safe, respecting campus on which to live and study. Beth knows and believes that with a good education, with good funding and well paid teachers, with affordable student loans and college tuition, the next generation of Iowans and of Ames students can reach and accomplish their goals. That is why I, and every other student on Iowa State’s campus, should support and vote Wessel-Kroeschell in the polls this week on campus and at our own polling locations on Nov. 6. One more thing, local elections are incredibly important. With a Republican-led House education funding, the rights of women have been under attack in the state of Iowa, and we need to keep wonderful representatives in there like Wessel-Kroeschell to fight for our rights as students.

students as top priority on budget

If you’ve been reading the Daily lately, you’ve seen stories about the Government of the Student Body and the Executive Initiative Account. There has been some misrepresentation about the facts surrounding this account, misrepresentation that has made it appear I’ve misused student fees, and as president of the government, I’m here to clear the air. The current account balance is $1043.55 and $327.45 was spent building a wall to create a meeting space in the Memorial Union for all students and student organizations. $129 was spent on a portion of a retreat for the Executive Cabinet, with the other half of costs covered by cabinet members. Three additional charges for pizza and art were reimbursed, as was the clear intention at the time of purchase. The account first received attention when we proposed transferring surplus office supply funds to the Executive Initiative Account. We ended last year about $2,000 under budget, but due to established procedure that money stayed in the operating budget and required a senate vote to move it from a place where it can be spent on paper clips and staples to an account where it can be used to improve student life, fund student groups and take on other initiatives. The senate and I agreed that before funds are transferred, there should be more transparency on the account. Following that meeting, I voluntarily placed restrictions on the account while the senate worked on an agreeable bylaw change. Their first attempt at a change failed, but after an impassioned case by the finance director concerned about the imminent account audit, the bylaw passed with the intention of reconsidering it the following week. The next morning, I consulted with the university’s business and finance office and was surprised to hear that following the procedure laid out in the bylaws, it has always been compliant. Based on that determination, the principle of a one-week bylaw, and the senate’s original failure of the bylaw, I vetoed. We all agreed there needed to be additional oversight and notification mechanisms on the account, and we put measures in place to ensure both while we decide on the best long-term solution. As much as some would like this to be a story about government corruption or shady dealings, it’s a story about self-policing, and the seriousness with which we approach the use of student fee dollars. Students have always been the focus of the Executive Initiative Account and students will continue to be our No. 1 priority when spending student fees.

STILLWATER, Okla. — The main question for ISU football after a gutwrenching loss remains: How does one fix an inconsistent offense? “Piece by piece,” said ISU coach Paul Rhoads after his team’s 31-10 loss to Oklahoma State on Saturday. “You’ve got to continue to examine

the plan that you’re coming into it with — what’s right, what’s wrong, why was it wrong — [and] 11 guys have got to execute. “There’s no different play call that you can make to catch a ball. So you look at every single piece of it — coaching, playing, executing, capabilities of the personnel — and continue to move along.” Rhoads said he kept a battle for the starting quarterback spot between Jared Barnett, Steele Jantz and Sam

Same old story? The Cyclones’ struggles revealed shades of their 52-17 loss to Missouri last season, at least in terms of offense. In that game, much like its 31-10 loss to Oklahoma State last Saturday, Iowa State was out-gained by more than 200 total yards and was held to less than 20 points. However, running back Jeff Woody said there was a major difference between the two.

“This wasn’t near as bad as Mizzou last year,” Woody said. “At Mizzou, we had way more turnovers, way more missed assignments, way more mistakes. “That was a game last year that every little thing that we could have done to shoot ourselves in the foot — we didn’t shoot ourselves in the foot, we shot ourselves in the face — everything we could have done wrong in that game last year, we did.”


Running game stuffed, stifled in loss Running backs tally 37 percent of rushing yards By Alex.Halsted STILLWATER, Okla. — If the ISU football team could just reach 200 rushing yards, coach Paul Rhoads said it would be in good shape offensively. Rhoads said he would even settle for 180 yards on the ground. As Iowa State (4-3, 1-3 Big 12) fell 31-10 to Oklahoma State (4-2, 2-1) on Saturday, it barely sneaked by the 100yard mark, gaining 101 rushing yards. “I still believe that we really have to get the run game going,” said ISU quarterback Jared Barnett. “It’s easy for them to sit back there and bring a whole bunch of people and play one-on-one on the outside if they know we’re not going to run.” The Cyclones had 22 rushing attempts against the Cowboys and several were unscripted as Barnett — and his late-game replacement Steele Jantz — were forced to scramble. Barnett led Iowa State in rushing as the redshirt sophomore picked up nearly half of the team’s total

“I think it was the line not getting a push enough and also the running backs not seeing the holes,” Barnett

said of the struggles. “They were a good defensive line —



Cyclones sweep Sooners with consistent play Offensive end has widespread success By Cory.Weaver It’s been a while since the ISU volleyball team put all the pieces together. It’s a task easier said than done, but was accomplished Saturday night as Iowa State sent Oklahoma packing with a 3-0 sweep. The win comes after Iowa State won its first two sets against Texas on the road Wednesday, but lost the final three to lose the match. One area this team has talked about throughout the season is consistent play. “Tonight was the first night I feel like we’ve put it together in three consecutive sets,” Hockaday said. “I think

>>RUSHING.p4A don’t get me wrong — they were really making it tough on our guys to get good blocks sustained.” ISU running back Jeff Woody added that game situations often dictate play calling. The Cyclones trailed most of the game. “I think we’ve just got to go back to pounding the ball and establishing a running game prior to pulling it up and trying to pass,” Woody said. Despite a tentative 180-yard rushing mark set by Rhoads, the running backs’ goal is whatever will get the team a victory. “We have a goal to establish a run game,” Woody said. “But if we win, nothing else matters.” Rhoads mostly satisfied with defense The defense knew entering its matchup with Oklahoma State that it was in for a difficult test. The Cowboys entered Saturday’s game with the best offense in the country, averaging just more than 601 yards per game. The Cyclones allowed 625 total yards in the loss. “At 24 points in the fourth quarter, I thought they were playing all right,” Rhoads said of his defense. “The final stat sheet reads 600-plus yards, but it’s a team that averages 601. “They average 48 points, and on a perfect weather-conditioned day we held them to 31 points.” The Cyclones were hurt especially

>>WIN.p4A our ball-handling was sharp tonight, and that let Alison [Landwehr] just pick where she wanted to set and she put some great balls up there and kind of spread out the offense a little bit, so it was a really good night all around.” While Victoria Hurtt led the Cyclones (11-7, 5-3 Big 12) offensively with 13 kills, it was her supporting cast that made the difference in holding off the Sooners (16-7, 5-3). Hockaday, Jamie Straube and Mackenzie Bigbee all finished with at least nine kills to help the team to a .367 hitting percentage, the largest mark of the season. ISU coach Christy JohnsonLynch said it’s not very common for her team to have such widespread success on the offensive end and was especially excited for Bigbee, who she said had been struggling recently. “Usually you kind of wait for the stars and the moon to align and


Josh Lenz injured

Richardson in house after Barnett struggled in the team’s six-point loss to Kansas State on Oct. 13. Barnett got the start for the Cyclones (4-3, 1-3 Big 12) before eventually getting benched at the start of the fourth quarter in favor of Jantz. Barnett completed 49 percent of his passes while throwing one touchdown and one interception. “Sending a lot of blitzes was really helping them a lot,” Barnett said of the OSU defense. “Them flushing me out of the pocket and making me have to throw and run and making me have to pull it down and run — that made it a lot harder for us to get our offense on track.” On a positive note, Barnett passed for more than 200 yards for the second time in nine career starts — the only other time coming in the upset win against thenNo. 2 Oklahoma State last season (376 yards). Oklahoma State (4-2, 2-1) upheld its prestige as the nation’s topranked offense, gaining 625 total yards to boost its average to 605.3 per game. The ISU offense sputtered, however, as it was forced to punt on nine of its 14 drives. Seven of those punts directly resulted from threeand-outs by the offense. “It’s frustrated,” said running

Iowa State was without wide receiver Josh Lenz on Saturday as the senior sat out with an injury. Lenz injured his quadriceps on Tuesday in practice. After attempting to warm up before the game, it was decided he could not play against Oklahoma State. ISU coach Paul Rhoads said he hopes Lenz will not be on the sidelines for long. “I’m sure hopeful he gets back for this coming Saturday,” Rhoads said. “The fact that he was in pads and tested it to see if he was close today tells me we should have him back.” Without Lenz against Oklahoma State, the Cyclones had 240 receiving yards. On the season Lenz has contributed 279 receiving yards and four touchdowns in six games.

by big plays. The defense allowed a 74-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter from J.W. Walsh to Charlie Moore and a 62-yard run by Joseph Randle that eventually led to another touchdown in the second half. “We did make some stops that were key and we did force them to kick some fields goals that fortunately they didn’t make,” said linebacker Jeremiah George. “That was a great football team, that was a great offense that we played.” Playing great offenses won’t soon stop, either. The Cyclones face Baylor’s No. 3-ranked offense Saturday. then it happens so it’s really good to see this against a good team,” Johnson-Lynch said. Continuing with the offensive attack, serving played a positive role in Iowa State’s success Saturday night as well. A total of 10 service errors by the Cyclones might jump out at as a pretty high number. However, the give-and-take that comes with serving can cause a lot of service errors. “Even though we were making a lot of errors, we were making a lot of really good serves and getting them out-of-system so I think there’s more reward,” said freshman libero Caitlin Nolan. Reigning Big 12 Libero of the Year Kristen Hahn has been leading the team in digs in just about every match this season. The same wasn’t the case on Saturday as the all-around play on defense continued. Hockaday led the Cyclones with 14 digs, and Hahn was close behind with 11. Landwehr followed with 10

as Iowa State recorded 51 as a team. With Hahn’s four straight Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week awards this season, teams are becoming more aware of who she is and how to keep the ball away from her. JohnsonLynch said she is glad she has other players who can get in on the action. “We can’t rely on Hahn to get six digs per set every night,” JohnsonLynch said. “It’s really good to know that Hockaday can step it up, [Landwehr] can step it up, Nolan was pretty solid — just all-around pretty solid defensively.” After the collapse against Texas on Wednesday, Iowa State was not going to take any chances. The Cyclones won the second set 25-18 — the same score as the first — and hustled into the locker room for intermission Saturday. Before fans could bat an eye, they were back on the court just minutes later to get back at it. “We just all were saying: ‘We’ve

Photo: Huiling Wu/ Iowa State Daily ISU quarterback Jared Barnett attempts to escape the pass rush in the Cyclones’ 31-10 loss to Oklahoma State on Saturday, at Boone Pickens Stadium, in Stillwater, Okla. During the game, Barnett completed 19-of-39 passes for 206 yards for one touchdown and one interception.

back Jeff Woody of the mood of the offense. “We’re so close to being firing on all cylinders, but we’re just a hair short. That’s the frustrating part, it’s not a big thing.” Aside from Barnett’s 49 yards rushing — most of which were gained as a result of scrambling from defenders — the offense rushed for 52 yards on 16 carries (3.25 average). During the past two games in the absence of leading rusher James White, the running backs have accounted for 42.7 percent of the team’s total rushing yards.

After a loss like this, Rhoads said the worst thing his team could do would be to point fingers and assign blame. However, Rhoads did not deny there’s a chance some of his players could be holding in their criticisms. “It’s human nature,” Rhoads said. “We’re 4-3, and we’re a good football team, and we know we’re a good football team, but we want more. “There’s nobody that got on the plane that wanted anything else than victory, but that’s why you can’t finger-point.”

Team gets back its ‘mojo’ Getting into a groove is one thing every team strives for — that feeling of everyone not only playing well but also feeding off each other and keeping each other up. During the past two weeks, Iowa State may have found its way into one. In that time period, the team has won three of its four matches with the lone loss coming at Texas last Wednesday. Considering how much of a roller coaster the first six weeks of the season were, Iowa State’s recent play has been as close to an even keel as ever, and Johnson-Lynch said she liked how coach Joe Lynch put it in a team huddle Saturday. “That first month of the season,

because it was so up and down, it just felt hard; it just felt like a drag,” Johnson-Lynch said. “Joe in the huddle said ‘We’ve got our mojo back,’ and that’s kind of how I feel.” Johnson-Lynch realized that all it can take is a rough couple matches or even sets to flip that trend around. Only time will tell how long the Cyclones can keep their “mojo” going for, but seeing more positives with season’s end a month away is never something to complain about. “It can be fragile, it can be gone in a moment, but I like a lot of the things I’m seeing and I feel like we’re in a really good groove,” Johnson-Lynch said.

been here a million times before, and the teams we’re playing have come back a different team,’” Hockaday said. “I think our focus was there, and

we wanted to keep it short in there so we could come out and get warm again, because that is the worst when that happens.”

Fun Facts The largest living organism ever found has been discovered in an ancient American forest in eastern Oregon. Officially known as Armillaria solidipes, or the honey mushroom, the fungus is 3.5 miles square miles and takes up 1,665 football fields. Doves were called “turtles” long before today’s turtles. The tallest giraffe of today is less than one-third the height of the tallest dinosaur from the past. For six consecutive years, Fortune called Enron “The Most Innovative Company in Corporate America” (1995-2000). The song “Always” was written by Irving Berlin for Ellin Mackay, a Western Union heiress. Berlin was Jewish, Mackay was Catholic, and her father was just plain furious. Mr. Mackay attempted to distract Ellin’s affections with a yearlong trip to Europe; when that failed, he disinherited her. Berlin responded by marrying Ellin and giving his new wife an unusual wedding gift—the royalty rights to “Always.” While its popularity in America is fairly recent, margarine dates back to 1860s France, when Emperor Louis Napoleon III offered a prize to anyone who could design a cheap butter substitute.

By Jamie Lauten ISD Style writer Still deciding upon what to wear to this weekend’s homecoming game? Have no fear; we have the perfect inspiration for your Cytennial wardrobe. During the past 100 years, our alumni have sported every style and trend imaginable. Of course, there have been some crimes of fashion along the way and some hair disasters every so often, but some looks have come full circle and can easily look put together at the same time. You probably won’t catch my Iowa Staters

tailgating with giant flower brooches this fall, but you may find some sporting other looks from this charming 1951 Homecoming Court photo, seen above. Belts at the natural waist like the one seen at left are a great accessory that can be wrapped around sweaters and jackets to define your hourglass silhouette on chilly game days. Curved collared necklines are also making a comeback this fall and add a touch of sophistication to any look, even tailgating. It’s safe to say that a lot in the sport of cheerleading has changed over the last six-plus decades, expecially the uniforms. This photo, below and left, from 1945 shows three of Iowa

State’s cheerleaders sporting knee-length plaid pleated skirts ISU sweaters. The Pep Queen in the middle is even sporting loafers, quite a statement even in this year as many designers from Prada to 3.1 Phillip Lim featured them in their fall collections. Loafers, whether of a 1945 vintage or from the mall, are extremely versatile and make a stylish addition to any fall outfit. Comfort was key for these Yell Like Hell-ers back in 1987, center. Their sweats look paired with high-top sneakers would be considered a bit too much of fleece for today’s standards, but if you’re looking to take the comfy route this Homecoming you could take away something

from their get-ups. Pairing an infinity scarf with an oversized crew-neck sweatshirt, leggings, and combat boots is a great way to bring the look to the present day. Back in 1970, we’re sure no one was calling the fashion police on Gwen Fredrick, the year’s Homecoming Queen, right. However, we suggest that you don’t completely emulate the look this fall. Nonetheless, the double-breasted peacoat jacket is a classic fall/winter staple piece that you can add to your closet. Peacoats were heavily featured in Kate Spade’s fall 2012 collection. Fredrick might be pleased to know there was even a plaid peacoat in the bunch.


JEAN JACKETS RETURN By Ian Laughead ISD Style editor

Men, get ready to rock your Canadian tuxedos this fall. Whether it was the 1930s, the ‘50s, the ‘80s, or the ‘90s, jean jackets are a perennial favorite, but they’re coming back more than ever for their 2010s resurgence. However, these aren’t your father’s — ­­ or indeed, grandfather’s — jackets.

This denim has been updated for today’s rough-and-rugged mood with a bit of faux-authentic detailing. In seasons’ past, denim-on-denim has been one of those faux-pas everyone’s mother never hesitates to point out. But this time around, there’s nothing cooler than pairing a couple shades of indigo in any look. Dark jeans down below and a light jean jacket above the waist paired with a a worn out T-shirt or a flannel and a pair

of short boots has all the nonchalance of any rockstar with none of the flashy glam. The everyman staple naturally comes at a price to match, with a basic distressed wash version from American Eagle at only $79.50. For the risk takers out there, on the other hand, the ever-classic Levi’s makes a solid denim vest, $84.00 at Urban Outfitters, that crosses the line between cross-country trucker grunge and Brooklynite Instagram cool.

Cytennial preparation comes to end

Committee finalizes plans for upcoming celebration By Ashley.Hunt Each year an esteemed Homecoming committee is selected. Its job? Make Iowa State’s Homecoming an event to remember. So far, so good. Homecoming is a favorite event for ISU students each year. This year. Alicia Snyder and Morgan Foldes have been selected as this year’s Homecoming general co-chairwomen. The duo has been preparing for nearly a year. After being named general co-chairwomen in November, the two began developing their own ideas for what they would like to see at Homecoming 2012. Snyder and Foldes were both members of the 2011 Homecoming Committee. They enjoyed it so much they decided to vie for the leadership role. “When I first applied to be on the committee my freshman year, the idea of being able to plan such a huge event was appealing to me,” said Foldes, junior in marketing. “Homecoming was always so cool in high school, so I thought at this level, only better things could happen,” said Snyder, senior in interior design. Both said it was also appealing to be able to do something for the community and to see the community come together, not just as ISU students but as the city of Ames as a whole. After attending the first meeting, a transition meeting with former committee members, the first meeting to begin the official planning was held for the 2012 committee in February. “We’ve been planning ever since,” Snyder said. This year’s Homecoming Committee is made up of 26 members. Within the committee, the group is divided into several subcommittees, including tournaments, lawn displays and this year the special Cytennial Celebration committee. Snyder and Foldes said they came into the position with several ideas of how they would like the Cytennial Celebration to go.

From there, Foldes said they would pass their ideas on to each subcommittee. “Mostly we just passed on our ideas to the committees, so that they could twist and turn those ideas into their own.” This year, Snyder said they really wanted to improve their public relations skills. “Last year our PR didn’t reach the levels it should have, so we just really wanted to utilize that this year.” It seems their efforts have been successful. The Homecoming Committee has been selling Homecoming buttons at several events, including the Iowa State Fair and introductory events held at Iowa State. “Our name’s definitely out there this year,” Snyder said. Homecoming 2012 marks the 100 anniversary of ISU Homecomings. To celebrate, the committee and the alumni are calling this year’s celebration the Cytennial Celebration. As an important milestone in the history of ISU Homecomings, new events and changes can be expected this year. “There’s no way to pinpoint what’s new this year,” Foldes said. However, students can expect to be able to get more “bang for their buck” at the annual — and favorite — event, Food on Campus. This year, instead of getting five meals for $5, students and faculty can get seven meals for $5. In addition to this, the Friday night pep rally, which is usually on Central Campus, is set to be

held at the ISU Alumni Center. Snyder and Foldes said this is because they really wanted to draw in a larger crowd. “There’s no specific demographic for this event; we want everyone of all ages to attend,” Foldes said. Working closely with the Alumni Center, Snyder and Foldes said they really want to see members of the community and past alumni attending the event. They also hope that after the event, alumni will be drawn into Greekland to view the lawn displays and into Central Campus for the pancake feed. Because Homecoming was originally an event for alumni, it has been important to get the alumni involved each year at Iowa State. That’s why the committee has worked so hard to make alumni want to be involved. With Homecoming week getting under way, Foldes and Snyder are especially excited for the week’s events. “[I’m most excited for] Saturday at the football game,” Foldes said. “That will be the moment I’ll look back at the week and go, ‘Wow, everything is done.’ I mean: It’s a year worth of

planning. I’m excited to see how it all goes.” Snyder is most looking forward to working with the other committee members. “[I’m excited for] the execution of all the events and seeing the committee members be proud of their accomplishments,” Snyder said. “I love seeing their faces when what they plan works out.” Both Snyder and Foldes said they want everyone across campus and Iowa State to know this week is Homecoming week. They also really want students to get the Food on Campus. They put the event on for the students, and the food is cheap — as well as delicious — so there’s really no reason why a student shouldn’t want to attend. The duo also recommends attending the Friday night’s Homecoming event at the Alumni Center. It’s a great way to be a part of Iowa State’s Homecoming traditions, old and new, and to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. If you’d like to be involved in the planning of Homecoming 2013, the committee will be accepting applications at the end of October.

Cytennial Homecoming packed with action Opportunities to get involved and show school spirit await students, faculty, alumni and others in Ames By Ashley.Hunt Each year ISU students, faculty, alumni and people of the Ames community come together to celebrate one special week in Iowa State’s history: Homecoming. This year marks the Centennial Celebration, or as those clever Cyclones like to say, the Cytennial Celebration. In honor of the 100th Homecoming at Iowa State, it’s important to remember all of the traditions — new and old — and events that surround the week that is Homecoming. There is a multitude of festivities and activities for everyone to get involved in.

Homecoming button lunches The week starts out with the annual Homecoming button sales. In the past, people have been able to purchase the button for just $5. Then, showing the button at the Central Campus lunch station each day would give the student or faculty member a free lunch, Monday through Friday. This year, however, purchasing a button for $5 will get the student seven meals instead of just five. In addition to the usual five lunches, showing your button at noon on Sunday at the Homecoming Kickoff on Central Campus and Friday evening at the Pep Rally at the Alumni Center will get the individual a free dinner.

Lawn displays Also throughout the week, ISU students and fans alike are encouraged to take a stroll over to Greekland, where lawn displays of each fraternity and sorority will

be on display for anyone to enjoy. Lawn displays are usually based on the year’s Homecoming theme as well as embodying Cyclone Spirit and embracing being an Iowa Stater.

Tournaments Tournaments are also hosted throughout the Homecoming week. If you didn’t sign up to be on a team, be sure you attend the tournaments anyway to cheer on your friends, classmates and fellow sorority sisters and fraternity brothers.

this time. Yell Like Hell finals will be during the pep rally. If you’re unfamiliar with Yell Like Hell, expect to see a number of students from the greek community painted head-to-toe in our favorite Cyclone colors, cardinal and gold. The competition includes a skit-like performance where the students “yell like hell” and act out a story that encompasses the theme of Homecoming and


Anniversary brings together new and old traditions with help of ISU Alumni Center and city of Ames By Korris.Bysted Happy 100th anniversary to our very own Iowa State Homecoming. This year marks Iowa State’s 100th Homecoming since its very first Homecoming celebration in 1912. To mark this special occasion, this year’s Homecoming has been dubbed the Cytennial Celebration. Most students know this year is the Cytennial

Butter Cy Skipping on to Friday evening, the real fun begins. Friday has some of the favorite traditions and events of past Homecomings. Start your Friday out by heading to the Kildee Hall atrium anytime 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to see a life-sized butter sculpture of our favorite mascot, Iowa State’s very own Cy. The butter Cy will be created and sculpted by Sarah Pratt, the State Fair butter sculptor.

Pep rally Friday evening be sure to attend the traditional and exciting Homecoming pep rally. Usually held in Central Campus, this year’s pep rally will be held at the Iowa State Alumni Center on Beach Avenue. The pep rally begins at 5 p.m. Friday. The pep rally includes appearances from ISU football head coach Paul Rhodes, as well as members of the Cyclone football and basketball teams.

Yell Like Hell Another favorite tradition can be enjoyed during

Homecoming. What students may not know is this year the city of Ames and the ISU Alumni Center are working to make this the special celebration it should be. We can expect to see the city of Ames and the ISU Alumni Center more involved in the festivities than ever before. Tom Drenthe, director of the Ames Main Street Cultural District, elaborated on the ways that the city is going to be getting involved with the celebration. “[The city of Ames is] getting very involved,” Drenthe said. “It’s the first time they’re doing a pancake breakfast.” The pancake breakfast will be Sunday at the American Legion, located at 225 Main St. It will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The meal will cost pancake-eaters $5. There have also been rumors that businesses on Main Street are getting involved by decorating the street in the festive Cyclone way. “Windows will be decorated,” Drenthe said. In addition to the added involvement of Main Street and local businesses, The ISU Alumni Center will be adding some extra “exCYtement” to this year’s Homecoming activities. The ISU Alumni Center is doing a variety of extra things this year to honor the 100th anniversary Cytennial Celebration. The center will have a Friday night event. The pep rally, usually held on Central Campus on Friday evening of Homecoming week, has moved locations to the Alumni Center. In addition to this, to cater to the hopefully extra alumni coming to celebrate Iowa States 100th Homecoming, the building will be open for longer hours. The Alumni Center also has a special Homecoming Facebook page. For the past 100 days the Facebook page also had Iowa State special trivia and facts, said Julie Larson. They also “made a big splash in Visions magazine and will be doing a recap in the winter issue,” Larson said. Homecoming is an exciting time on the Iowa State

campus. There are always fun events to attend and be a part of, such as Yell Like Hell contests, the crowning of the Homecoming King and Queen, tournaments, lawn displays, the banner contest, the painting of Victory Lane near Jack Trice Stadium, the pep rally and — last but not least — the big football game. With so many traditons, it’s no wonder why many of the alumni are so excited to come back. “People have been registering since August,” Larson said. This is special because usually alumni do not start registering until much later and much closer to the Homecoming celebration. “[The Alumni Center has also] sold more buttons than ever before,” Larson said. This year, so many buttons have been sold there has actually been a need to order more. The best part about homecoming is anyone and everyone can participate. It makes no difference what you enjoy doing: There is at least one tradition you can participate in and enjoy. For most people, the favorite part of Homecoming is, of course, the game. With so many enjoyable traditions, one would imagine there is already enough excitement surrounding Homecoming week. However, this year the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences has decided to add a new tradition to the list. The new tradition is none other than a butter sculpture of Cy, our ISU mascot. That’s right: Cy in all his buttery goodness. “It will be on display in Kildee Hall. They’re making

As if that wasn’t enough “exCYtement” for one event, this year during the pep rally, a cash bar will be provided by Olde Main Brewing Co. beginning at 7 p.m. Dinner will be available to purchase or will be free for people wearing their official Iowa State Homecoming button. You might want to get there early, as the first 100 people at the Pep Rally will get a special Homecoming prize.

ExCYtement in the Streets Following the pep rally, “ExCYtement in the Streets” will begin. All ISU students and fans are encouraged to walk through Greekland to view the Homecoming lawn displays if they haven’t already. This self-guided parade has been a Homecoming tradition for many years.

File photo: Iowa State Daily ISU students participate in the 2011 Homecoming basketball tournament. The up-and-coming sport of spike-ball has been added to this year’s cardinal division of tournaments.

ISU tournaments grow in popularity Involvement leads to expansion of gold committee By Kelsey.Roehrich Tournaments are bigger than ever for this year’s Homecoming Cytennial celebration. “We have expanded them more than we have in the past,” said Joe Klaes, gold division tournaments chair of the homecoming central committee. Participation for gold division tournaments has increased drastically this year. Until this year, tournaments have been done under one committee, but due to the expansion another gold committee has been added, Klaes said. “Last year there were 16 total teams on gold,” Klaes said. “This year we have 72 teams.” This year all the gold divi-

sions have been maxed out, and three new tournaments have been added: flag football, dodgeball and laser tag. The new up-and-coming sport of spike-ball has also been added to this years cardinal division. “A big goal for Homecoming this year was to get all campus involvement, especially since it’s the hundred year celebration,” said Steven Harm, cardinal division tournaments chair of the Homecoming Central Committee. Tournaments have been a part of Homecoming since the very beginning. They were originally intended for all students, but in 2004 they were split into Cardinal for the greek community and Gold for anyone who wants to participate, Harm said. “Tournaments are important especially for nongreek students to get to interact with people and get to know more people who they are playing with,” Harm said.

Students who are not participating in a tournament are encouraged to come and support their greek pairings or teams of their friends. Most events will have bleachers or space for spectators. “It raises the spirits of Homecoming,” Klaes said. The tournaments committee wants to get resident hall teams to compete similarly to how greek houses compete. Klaes and Harm said with the great turnout for the gold division this year, it will be very likely for next year. “The gold division tournaments are all individual based: Each tournament will have its own winner,” Klaes said. The giant increase of student involvement in the gold division tournaments was a great success for the Homecoming Central Committee and a great kickoff to the 100th Homecoming. Harm said: “Anyone can feel like they are a part of Homecoming.”


>>TRADITIONS.p6B it all day Saturday, and it will be on display for the whole week,” Larson said. Additionally, students have also started selling special shirts and sweatshirts for the important Cytennial Celebration. Some of the shirts will be on sale Saturday during the

Pancake feed on Central Campus After you’ve gotten into the Cyclone Spirit at the Pep Rally and taken part in the parade through Greekland, end your night at Central Campus. From 10 p.m. – midnight for just $3 you can get all-youcan-eat pancakes. Hang around Central Campus until midnight to take part in one of Iowa States’ most celebrated traditions. Fireworks begin at midnight and couples from across Ames come together under the Campanile to celebrate a favorite tradition all around, mass campaniling. Story has it that a student is not a true Iowa Stater until he or she kisses someone under the Campanile at midnight. As this is the 100th anniversary of ISU Homecoming, student organizers hope to get the biggest turn out to date in honor of the Cytennial Celebration. Start your Saturday off

right by attending the Cyclone Central Homecoming Tailgate held at the ISU Alumni Center. Beginning three hours before the kickoff for the big game, Cyclone fans can come together to prepare for a Cyclone football victory later that day. Admission is free but fans who wish to enjoy a meal, catered by Hickory Park, need to register in advance online. Next is perhaps the most important tradition of Homecoming: the football game. The Cyclones will battle Baylor University at Jack Trice Stadium. Cheer on your favorite team to victory — and don’t forget to wear your favorite Cardinal and Gold colors. With a ton of exciting events and traditions to take part in, Homecoming week is sure to be one to remember. Let’s have a fun and safe week and “Take Ames by Storm.” Go Cyclones!

big game, while supplies last. Larson said this Homecoming is especially exciting because so many entities have taken part in the festivities this year. Homecoming is the time when fellow Iowa Staters — current and past — can join together, share traditions and learn what it truly means to be a Cyclone.

As Larson said, it really is amazing that “something as strong as Homecoming has continued for 100 years.” Every student and community member should enjoy this Homecoming like the 99 before this one have been enjoyed. But let’s not forget to look back and remember how we got here. Hours: Mon-Fri 8AM - 8PM Sat 9AM - 4PM
