Event: ‘Nearly Naked’ students will run on Friday On Friday, the Student Alumni Leadership Council will be hosting the fourth annual Nearly Naked Mile. Andrew Augustine, ambassador and co-chairman for the council, said that students look forward to the race because of how unique it is. “The are able to donate clothing that is in the back of their closet [that] they are not going to wear,” Augustine said. This is because runners strip off excess layers of clothing to donate as they make their way through the race. Although this is an annual event, Augustine said that they are expecting more runners than last year, approximately 700 to 800 people. The race route will also be slightly different. “It’s starting in the front of the alumni center and ending behind,” Augustine said. Participants will receive a $5 voucher, usable at restaurants such as Fighting Burrito and Pizza Pit in Campustown, as well as a Nearly Naked Mile t-shirt. — Daily Staff

The first round of the 2013 NFL Draft started Thursday at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, but former ISU football players Jake Knott and A.J. Klein haven’t started worrying just yet. Neither player has been projected to be selected in the first or second rounds. But judging from what Todd McShay said at the NFL Combine, they were both most likely day-three prospects, which would land them in rounds four through seven. W i t h Saturday b e i n g the most likely day either former Cyclone will be drafted, they both plan to play a relaxing 18 holes of golf. “I plan to be golfing unless I get yelled at too much,” Knott said jokingly. “That’ll be the slowest day in my mind.” Since the NFL Combine in Indianapolis on Feb. 20, Knott and Klein have both been busy with team workouts. Klein was back at Athlete Performance Institute in Pensacola, Fla., working out, then headed home for a brief stint before Iowa State’s Pro Day

on March 26. Then, on Wednesday, Klein was invited to the NFLPA Rookie Debut in New York City, which he attended with his representation agency, XAM Sports with Tim Vallentyn and Scott Smith. Knott visited the Kansas City Chiefs and worked out on April 5, performing in position drills for multiple defensive coordinators and representatives. As is customary in those situations, no team really told Knott where they are looking at him in terms of draft stock in order to keep as much information confidential as possible until draft night. “A lot of the teams ask to remain confidential because they don’t want teams trading up. So, it’s interesting to look at it from that point of view,” Knott said. The fact that Knott worked out with the Chiefs — his favorite team growing up — made it a little more exciting. But, he’s treating his potential NFL career just as he conducted himself at Iowa State. “You know me,” Knott said. “[I will

Board of Regents

Off-campus housing approved Housing similar to apartments within Frederiksen Court By Danielle.Ferguson Additional off-campus housing was approved Thursday at the Board of Regents meeting. A request to add 299 new beds from apartments at 119 Stanton, owned by American Campus Communities, and 204 beds from Jensen Properties in West Ames

was given the go-ahead in a unanimous vote at the recent meeting. Warren Madden, senior vice president for business and finance, and Pete Englin, director of the Department of Residence, presented the proposal to the Board. “It was a positive dialogue. They thanked us for continuing to pay attention to students and their needs and their desires to live in university-owned or managed properties, and we’ll do our best to make it a great experience,” Englin said. Englin said he anticipates

the agreements will be signed within the next couple weeks and will then take effect August 1. On April 1, an update revealed that Iowa State was 1,200 bed requests over the Department of Residence’s capacity. Even with the additional beds to be added to Frederiksen Court, 240 in August and 480 in the spring, demand still outnumbered availability. Qualifications for the new additions are the same as those of Frederiksen Court. Students must be 19 years of

age or in their second year of college, determined by calendar, not by credits taken. Iowa State University will furnish these new apartments in a similar fashion to the way to Frederiksen Court apartments are now furnished. As far as price for the new apartments goes, the American Campus Communities and Jensen apartments are also comparable to those of Frederiksen Court. A four-bedroom apartment at any of the three locations will cost a proposed rate

of $5,257. University Housing and Dining Operating will fund the August 2013-July 2014 leases. The Board heard from ISU Faculty Senate President Suzanne Hendrich and Professional and Scientific Council President David Orman regarding faculty salary issues. “Our engagement in our work, our determination to succeed, the value we place on diversity, and making a difference, our positive at-

Places such as Hickory Park, HyVee, Panera Bread and Alpha Copies have helped in the fundraising effort by donating gift cards and other items to be raffled at the fundraising event. Raffle tickets will be sold for $1 and after the purchase of $10 worth of tickets, each additional $1 purchase will earn two tickets. All proceeds will benefit GiGi’s playhouse, the Fischer Foundation and ACCESS, the local battered women’s shelter.

GiGi’s Playhouse is an organization that helps raise money and awareness for children with Down syndrome. The Fischer Foundation provides free or low-rent housing to families of military members who have been injured in combat. The members of Republic of Hope have set a goal of raising at least $1,000 through this event, which all donations will go toward three local

Common sense lost in bombing As we all know by now, three people were killed and several others injured by two bombs placed at the Boston Marathon finish line by the Tsarnaev brothers on April 15. And in typical American fashion, we freaked out. Bostonians fled the city, and what looked like nothing less than the initial assault on Fallujah, Iraq, every local, state and federal agent with a gun and a badge descended upon the city. Boston was under siege all right, but less by the bombers and more by the cops. Of course, bombings and killings and terrorism are all horrible things, and we have a right to be mad, sad and all sorts of upset about them when those things happen. We wouldn’t be human if we weren’t, after all. However what was a local problem — that is, local to Boston, Massachusetts — became a sudden national crisis. There are many reasons for that, many or most of them caused by mass media, naturally, but it’s led to renewed cries of the old slogan “If you see something, say something,” and other post-9/11 Homeland Security “1984”type warnings from Big Brother. Yes, if you see a bomb or terrorists planting a bomb, call the cops. Please. But if it’s just a bag sitting in the corner, maybe exercise a little common sense before you dial 9-1-1. On Monday, someone reported a “suspicious package” sitting outside Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City. Now, while Cyclones might not mind Kinnick Stadium being blown up (with no one inside or injured, of course), the local bomb squad — and pretty much every cop in the area — swarmed Herkey’s hideout, surrounded the package and discovered ... a box of tea, ginger and a greeting card. Whew, thank God. Crisis averted! But wait, there’s more: The same day, the Ames Police shut down the downtown post office for yet another bomb threat. Apparently postal workers were freaked out about a backpack sitting in the lobby of the post office. After all, what are the odds of that happening in a college town — or really any town for that matter? So after just a few minutes of the bag left suspiciously unattended, the would-be bomb was called in, the post office closed down, and the entire block cordoned off. The police said later they wouldn’t have bothered so much two weeks ago. We can only assume this is because the police would have rightly exercised common sense. But that begs the question: Why has common sense gone away just because a couple idiots plant bombs 1,300 miles away from here? Facebook was awash with “this makes me proud to be an American!” posts after the remaining Tsarnaev brother was captured and cheerful mobs filled the streets of Boston cheering and celebrating. But was there that much to celebrate? We claim we’re strong, but we gave in to the terrorism: We let the incident scare us into fleeing our homes, reporting every person with brown skin or a backpack to the cops for being terrorists and reporting every unattended box and bag to the bomb squad. We let the Tsarnaev brothers change everything about how we live our lives, even if just for a few days. We let the Tsarnaev brothers remove our common sense, too. Yes, if you see something, say something. But don’t be an idiot, either.

Failed bill should be passed


resident Obama’s reaction to the failure of the “compromise amendment” on background checks for gun sales was one of the first glimpses of anger we’ve actually seen from him in his two terms in office. And it was for good reason; the compromise amendment should have passed in the Senate. With flying colors. In case you missed it, this “compromise amendment” was a bipartisan measure that would have required background checks for the sale of guns at gun shows and in online transactions. This requirement really isn’t anything new; background checks are already required when purchasing a gun from a sporting goods store or a local Wal-Mart. The process is simple: When purchasing a gun, the store is required to run the buyer’s name through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, a network of several federal databases that check criminal records. The process itself takes, at most, a few minutes. The proposed amendment — brought to the table by two senators, democrat Joe Manchin and republican Pat Toomey — was intended to merely cover the loopholes, requiring all transactions involving the purchasing of guns — both public and private — to include this simple check. This amendment was surprisingly moderate and had nothing to do with removing assault weapons from circulation. It truly was a bipartisan idea, meant only to keep guns out of the hands of criminals. And in a poll conducted by both the Washington Post and ABC News, nine out of 10 Americans supported it. It’s important to note that in addition to the more than 90 percent of Americans in support of universal background checks, 91 percent of all gun-owning households and 85 percent of households with members of the National Rifle Association also supported the compromise. On April 17, the Senate held a vote. The amendment needed only 60 votes to overcome a filibuster in the Senate, but it fell short with 54 votes. This means that 46 United States senators voted against compromise, a compromise designed not to strip us of our rights or remove assault weapons from the market, but to help ensure that trustworthy and responsible individuals are able to obtain deadly weapons. So why, if 90 percent of Americans were united in supporting universal background checks, did the compromise amendment fail? There are some truly disappointing answers here, but

Courtesy photo Even though nearly all Americans agreed that background checks were necessary for all gun purchases, a bipartisan bill made by a democrat and a republican proposing such a law was not passed in the Senate.

By Elaine.Godfrey perhaps most obvious is the NRA’s influence on politicians and interference with their political duty. In Iowa, a state which has historically focused very little on the regulation of guns and prevention of gun violence — and which has typically been against arms regulation of any kind — a whopping 88 percent of the population agreed on the need for universal background checks. That means that almost nine out of every 10 people, according to the Des Moines Register, feel that background checks are completely necessary. Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley, however, chose to vote against the Manchin-Toomey amendment on April 17. Perhaps it’s important to mention that Senator Grassley received over $78,000 in donations and independent expenditures from the NRA in his 2010 election, the third-highest amount of any NRA funding recipient in the country. But while Grassley might

receive a top rating from the NRA, he should have been working for an ‘A’ rating from his constituents rather than a special-interest bully. “Ultimately, you outnumber those who argued the other way,” said President Obama, in his blatantly disgusted response to the decision from the White House Rose Garden. “But they’re better organized. They’re better financed. They’ve been at it longer. … So to change Washington, you, the American people, are going to have to sustain some passion about this. And, when necessary, you’ve got to send the right people to Washington.” Perhaps this is what we, the American people, must take away from the disappointing decision of April 17. We, the 90 percent of Americans who voted to make a change in our country, to make it safer, and to honor the victims of gun violence, need to be vocal about the inaction of our government. Requiring universal background checks might have been a very small action to take in the memory of Newtown and the thousands of other deaths caused by gun violence in this country, but at least we were able to reach a proposal that offered compromise. How dare we let a special interest

group infiltrate our political system and influence our politicians? How dare we let them muffle our united voices? We must tell our congress members how we feel — and be as vocal in our support of universal background checks as those 10 percent in loud opposition. We must come together to show the NRA and other special interest groups that the voices of 90 percent of Americans cannot be ignored — and that we are not giving up yet; in fact, advocates for universal background checks are regrouping and continuing to draft legislation with the potential to make our country safer. Organizing For Action, for example, is working at the grassroots level to encourage new compromise, along with both democrats and republicans who supported the compromise amendment. Our job is to not only support new background check legislation, but advocate for it, by calling, tweeting, and petitioning our congressmen. This is not over yet. We must make our voices heard.

Choose your side on gun control I n 2010, an average of 85 people in the United States died of gun violence each day. As individuals who are on a college campus and in other public spaces on a daily basis, I believe most of us are well aware of the threat of a gun in the wrong person’s hand and the damage that it can cause. Last week 45 senators seemed to have either ignored or forgotten these facts. Forty-one republicans and four democrats made up the team that defeated a bill to expand background checks for gun buyers. This piece of legislation was the best hope for gun control as a result of the Newtown massacre back in December. This means that this horrendous event — one that had the entire nation sitting on the edge of its seat within minutes of the story breaking — did not cause any change in our country. Albert Einstein said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results.” Mass killings continue to happen, yet legislators continue to do nothing. The defeated legislation proposed expanding background checks for gun buyers. Believe it or not, the National Rifle Association actually supported this at one time, but because it was proposed by Obama and his fellow democrats they can no longer support it.

By Hannah.Dankbar politics comes before the general well-being of the American public. We can, and should, be outraged. The arguments these 45 senators came up with were simply atrocious. They used any excuse they could think of, from a raise in taxes, to a slippery slope, to fear of a national gun registry (the failed bill actually prohibited this). Obama said the senators who made these arguments “willfully lied.” Gabrielle Giffords, a Congresswoman representing Arizona from 2007 to 2012, was a victim of a shooting rampage in 2011. She now focuses on gun violence. She wrote an editorial for the New York Times last week detailing her disappointment in the Senate. Giffords shared her personal experience and made it clear that if Congress continues to uphold the interests of lobbying groups instead of the safety of our communities, then the citizens will make sure we get a Congress who cares about our comChris Conetzkey The Des Moines Business Record Publication: ISU students subscribe to the Iowa State Daily through activity fees paid to the Government of the Student Body.

munities. Simple as that. Obama also commented that this is not the last we will hear about this issue by saying, “Sooner or later, we are going to get this right. The memories of these children demand it, and so do the American people.” According to an ABC/Washington Post Poll between April 11-14, approximately 86 percent of Americans supported laws that require background checks for potential gun buyers. If this issue does not disappear in America’s short-term memory and this level of public support continues, we might actually be able to make things change.

Cyclone women take 4x1,600 ISU claims victory during Drake Relays


By Isaac.Copley



Cyclones pull in sixth-best in national attendance Iowa State pulled in the sixthbest attendance in the nation for its wrestling dual meets, according to Amateur Wrestling News. Iowa State averaged 2,455 people in attendance at its five home duals, falling 21 short of fifth-place Minnesota. Its highest attendance came during the Beauty and the Beast meet on Feb. 8, when the Cyclones beat Northern Iowa 2312 in front of a crowd consisting of 3,866. In-state rival Iowa turned the top-ranked attendance for the seventh-straight year. The Hawkeyes averaged 8,764, which is more than 2,000 ahead of the second-place team, Penn State. — Jake Calhoun

DES MOINES — The Iowa State women’s 4x1,600-meter relay team accomplished a feat it had never achieved before: a victory at the Drake Relays. In Thursday’s race anchored by senior Ejiro Okoro, who ran a 4.43-second 1,600-meter leg, the relay team was able to pull away and race to a convincing win with a time of 19:16.69. “Basically, I knew I had the lead and I just had to be consistent to maintain the lead,” Okoro said. “Everyone just did their best and we all pulled through. It was a good job, well done.” Fifth-year senior Dani Stack started the race and put her teammates in a good position before handing the baton to Maggie Gannon, who raced to the front of the competition for the early lead. “For me personally, this is something that I’ve wanted since my freshman year,” Stack said. “Especially with the season that I’ve been having. I was injured. Being at home on the Drake field is more than I could have imagined; this is by far my most exciting moment.” Running third for the Cyclones was freshman Crystal Nelson, who stretched Iowa State’s lead even further. Nelson, running in the Drake Relays for the first time, set the stage for Okoro.

Horoscope by Linda C. Black Today’s Birthday (04.26.13) Appreciate trees today and all year. Get involved in causes with groups that share your passions. Until July, a financial boost fills your coffers; divert substantially to savings, despite spending temptation. Summer energy shifts to super-powered communications, as social networking gets fun and full of possibility. To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging. Aries (March 21-April 19) Today is a 9 -- Creative work has a bittersweet flavor, and it still tastes good. Commit to what you believe in. But don’t bite off more than you can chew right now.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) Today is an 8 -- Delays can be surprisingly fun. Check for changes before proceeding. If you’re going to be late, call. Don’t rest on your laurels just yet. Continue to put in extra effort, and follow your gut instincts. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Today is a 9 -- It requires getting everyone aligned

to move forward to get the task done ... but it’s worth it. Imagine the project complete, and work backwards to see what steps are necessary. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Today is an 8 -- Relationship frustration and disagreement requires a step back. A solution is available, if you listen. Relax and breathe deeply. Look from the other’s viewpoint. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Today is an 8 -- Don’t try to bend the rules. It’s not worth the energy. It may require discipline to do what’s needed, rather than plot alternatives. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Today is an 8 -- Use an opportunity to dig deeper into a favorite subject. Your ability to concentrate gets enhanced marvelously. Express your true feelings gently at work. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Today is a 9 -- When it comes to money, now’s the time to watch and learn. View the situation from a different perspective, and then exceed all expectations. You may have to travel to get what you want.

Get together face to face for best results. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Today is an 8 -- Venture farther out. Grasp the next opportunity. Compromise is required. Keep your objective in mind, and make the changes you desire. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Today is an 8 -- The action today is behind the scenes. Move files to storage or organize structures. You can afford a special treat (saving counts the same as earning). Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Today is a 9 -- Cultivate the ground. You’re learning, with practice. Friends are eager to help and vie for your attention. Seek help from a teacher. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Today is a 9 -- Complete an old project, and stick with what worked before. Do a good job and increase your status. Keep a discovery private, for now. Travel and romance look good.
