Letter to the Editor

Written as a response to Robin Klaus’ “Dorms are not dumps” in the Nov. 16 issue of the Voice. Upon reading the “Dorms are not dumps” article, I took a moment to analyze what I just viewed. The humorous introduction was a situation students may encounter during their stay here. The other day, I almost slipped on the first floor of my residence hall, where I proceeded to observe a sizable volume of orange Sunny D spilt on the floor. I did not see this incident occur, just like the glitter incident, but I would assume that in my situation, the “culprit(s)” would recom-­ pense for their accident. This leads me to my difference of Ms. Klaus’ article. In the second paragraph as quoted, “I heard the culprit complaining about a threat of charges about the mess.” The word I find questionable about that statement is “heard.” Nowhere in the article does the writer mention about confronting the “culprit.” Hearing any-­ thing is purely speculation; I can walk into Lowry and hear many conversations but I cannot hold validity to them unless I ask about what actually happened. I do not disagree with how Ms. Klaus praises the custodial staff because frank-­ ly, they should receive greater thanks than are given. She is right in mentioning how they clean up after us and even though not all of us are from affluent house-­ holds, we do not have the right to make the dormitories pigsties. There was a report sent out to residents of my dorm by the RD outlining cleaning violations that occurred. One of them happened to be in my hallway. Thankfully the person who committed this act took responsibility and was sorry for the accident. All I would like to read is that Ms. Klaus received her information correctly and talked to the “culprit.” She may be surprised and find that the glitter incident was an accident. Journalism is all about the facts and if they are wrong, then who can we believe? Colin Omilanowski ’16

In defense of Disney In the last edition of the Voice, I felt personally berated by contribu-­ tor Dan Grantham for what he claimed was my inability to branch out from my child-­ hood interests. Speaking as someone who not only has had the same GWEN SYMONS favorite book for the past ten years but also as a great lover of Disney films, I was deeply disturbed by Grantham’s condescending observations. It is completely unfair to gen-­ eralize college students who still love “Harry Potter” and children’s movies as being unable to appreci-­ ate more “sophisticated” films or books. Since coming to college, my own interests have expanded tenfold. I have always loved read-­ ing and each year I discover new authors that I enjoy deeply. That being said, every other year, I still pull out “Lord of the Rings” and “Harry Potter” and give them a good read-­through. And somehow this renders me im-­ mature? Absolutely not, and I’ll tell you why: the way I read these books has evolved since I read them as a kid. Take ‘‘Lord of the Rings.” I still love the fantasy elements in this series, but, after having taken sev-­ eral classes about Medieval his-­ tory, I appreciate their complexity and the absolute genius of Tolk-­ ien even more. Following that line of thinking, Disney films and other fantasy-­related I.S.s are so much more than just “waxing po-­ etic about their profound nature.” As a cornerstone of popular lit-­ erature and culture, they warrant academic analysis. Moreover, the

basis of Grantham’s argument is completely fictional. The people that he attacks don’t actually exist on campus. In my four years here, I have yet to meet anyone who has wall-­papered her or his room in Disney memorabilia even though I have met numerous avid Disney fans (myself included). Obviously, Grantham uses this scenario facetiously, but in doing so, he fails to establish its appli-­ cability to his argument. Further-­ more, his reasons for avoiding said scenario are badly argued. Peer disapproval alone is a poor ra-­ tionale for not doing something. Lastly, Grantham suggests that Disney lovers should move on to watching PG-­13 and R rated mov-­ ies because, for reasons I can’t quite comprehend, a stricter rat-­ ing some how makes a film more valuable. Finally, the supposed simplicity of a book or movie shouldn’t affect what you are able to get out of it. Like so many things in life, what you put into something is what you’ll ultimately take away. So many children’s novels have won-­ derful elements that don’t stop be-­ ing relevant just because one has turned 18. Friendship, love, loyal-­ ty, courage...these might seem asi-­ nine as Grantham pointed out, but without them, the world would be a dark place indeed. There are so many worse things you can be in your life than childish and in some ways, it’s one of the best things you can be. As C.S. Lewis once said, “When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” Gwen Symons is a staff writter for the Voice and can be reached for comment at GSymons13@wooster.edu.

Star-­gazing or celebrity obsession? When I found out that one of the world’s hottest couples, Wil-­ liam and Kate, were going to have a baby, I dropped ever ything. I spent the next hour reading ar-­ ticles about what hyper-­ LAURA MERRELL emesis gravi-­ darum was and looking at slideshows people had made to commemorate their cutest moments. Obvi-­ ously, I have a problem. Many people, myself included, have a ten-­ dency to get caught up in other people’s lives, both real and fictional, perhaps even to an un-­ healthy degree. The success of the latest Twilight mov-­ ie, The Twilight Saga: Break-­ ing Dawn-­Part 2, (which should be in contention for one of the most unnecessarily long movie titles ever), emphasizes my point. Many Twihards live vicariously through the films and books, declaring themselves on either “Team Edward” or “Team Jacob.” There is also a really unbeliev-­ able and rather troubling amount of fan fiction available for almost any TV show or movie you can think of. With many fans so thoroughly engrossed in their favorite shows,

movies or celebrities, it is impor-­ tant to remember that there is a point at which becoming so im-­ mersed in a fictional reality dis-­ torts or becomes our reality. It’s one thing to really enjoy a TV show, but there are limits. While it is very intriguing and interesting whether Cristina and Owen from Grey’s Anatomy can figure things out, or what will become of Rachel and Finn of Glee, these outcomes should not have any meaningful impact on our day-­to-­day existence.

With the fiscal cliff looming on the horizon, the hope that Con-­ gressional Republicans and the White House could come together and forge a bipar-­ tisan resolu-­ tion is slowly fading. The House Repub-­ licans, led by IAN BENSON Speaker John Boehner, proposed their own plan to avoid the looming automatic tax increases and spending cuts, which the Obama ad-­ ministration quickly rejected — just an-­ other in a series of partisan claims that the other is insincere about forging a deal to avoid the cliff. Of course, Boehner’s proposal comes after he de-­ layed voting on a measure approved in the Senate that would give tax cuts to fami-­ lies making less than $250,000 and return tax rates for wealthy households to Clinton-­era levels. The problem seems to be an un-­ willingness on the part of both parties to compromise across the aisle, begging the question as to whether they even understand what the word means. As Henry Clay said, “a good compromise is when both parties are dissatisfied,” yet both Republicans and Demo-­

crats stubborn refusal of any plan other than their own is infuriat-­ ing. They are gambling with the well-­being and future of millions of lives, yet they cannot be mature enough to put aside a petty feud. Erskine Bowles, a Democrat from the Clinton administra-­ tion, and Alan Simpson, a former Republican Senator from Wyo-­ ming, are co-­chairs of President Obama’s federal deficit commis-­ sion. They outlined a series of sweeping plans to avoid the cliff and assist the ailing economy in their 59-­page report, “The Mo-­

break up on Bones, but after the epi-­ sode was over, I picked myself up, brushed myself off, and moved on. Becoming wrapped up in ce-­ lebrities’ lives can be just as problematic. I have to constantly remind myself that who Ryan Gosling dates is none of my busi-­ ness, but I seldom succeed. I had an epiphany at the gym when I could not change the channel, and I was forced to watch Entertain-­ ment Tonight’s coverage of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s break-­ up. Their break-­up does not really matter and has no bearing on my successes and fail-­ ures in life. I’m guilty of becoming too wrapped up in the media and celebrities and I am trying to make a change. Others who have the same shortcoming are welcome to try with me. I propose that we limit the amount of time spent on computers and watching TV. Let’s unplug our various devices and confront our own lives. Especially with finals drawing ever nearer, it’s vital to end this dependence. Let’s focus on ourselves, in-­ stead of which young handsome man Taylor Swift will date next for song material when it crashes and burns. Let’s face it, the world will not stop turning when we pull the cord.

... it is important to remem-­ ber that there is a point at which becoming so immersed in a fictional reality distorts or becomes our reality. There is nothing wrong with wiping away some tears after your favorite fictional couple breaks up, or feeling elated when a character you have been rooting for pulls through. However, there does need to be an understanding of separation between the show or movie and your life. The writers or screenwriters are not attempt-­ ing to ruin your life and should not have control over your emo-­ tions or mood to any significant extent. Yes, it was difficult for me to come to terms with Daisy and Sweets’

Fiscal compromise urgently needed

grand “bargain” than anything presented so far. The perfect pro-­ posal is not going to come along, especially with so little time re-­ maining before the cliff kicks in. Congress and the president’s administration need to ask them-­ selves what is more important to them: their party’s sense of pride or avoiding damage to the people they are sworn to represent. Of course, the answer should be easy, but these things have a tendency to come down to the wire. What makes this lack of com-­ promise all the more bitter is the fact that the standoff comes regarding tax increases for the nation’s wealthiest two percent. Republicans and Democrats are in agreement that the other 98 percent of the country, those making un-­ der $250,000 a year, deserve a tax cut. The holdup is a paltry two percent of the American population. One of the parties needs to sacrifice a little and put the well-­ being of the 98 percent in front of their party ideologies. The ex-­ treme left wing and the extreme right wing are playing a game of chicken right now, where reason is being trumped by politics. The issue is, instead of putting their own necks on the line, it is our heads on the chopping block.

Student shares exam horror story Missed final necessitates change in major

Wyatt Smith Features  Editor We’re not trying to be alarmists, but if a student misses a final exam, the consequences really can be dire. Here is the story of Will Hertel ’14, who had to drop one of his two majors after misreading his exam schedule. On the Thursday of exam week in the Spring 2012 semes-­ ter, Hertel had just one test left. It was the final for Quantita-­ tive Methods, a course required for all economics majors. Hertel had been struggling in the class, so he studied hard to ensure he could continue with his plan to be an economics and philosophy

double major. He woke up early to get some last-­minute studying in for what he thought was an afternoon test. On his way to the exam, Hertel ran into Eric Petry ’14, his classmate in Quantitative Methods. Petry asked Hertel where he was during that morning’s final. Confused, Hertel asserted that he was in fact on his way to the exam in question. Petry replied that he had already taken it; the final was over. At this point, Hertel hurried back to his room to double check the exam schedule, swearing the entire way. Petry was right; Her-­ tel had missed his Quantitative Methods final exam. Hertel’s first instinct was to

talk to his teacher, Assistant Pro-­ fessor of Economics Lisa Ver-­ don. Unable to locate her, Hertel returned to his dorm room and tried to figure out what he could do to remedy the situation. Hertel spent the next couple of days discussing his situation with Henry Kreuzman, Dean for Curric-­ ulum and Academic Engagement, and Barbara Burnell, Professor of Economics and Hertel’s academic adviser. According to Hertel, both expressed sympathy but held that he would need his teacher’s sup-­ port to retake the exam. The College Catalogue — which covers academic policy as well as degree requirements — states that “final examinations

When Hertel got in touch with Verdon, she told him that she would not support his attempt to retake the final. “There are very few excusable reasons for missing a final exam,” said Verdon, given all the warn-­ ing students receive of the tests’ timing and location. For exam-­ ple, Verdon makes a point of re-­ minding students about the final each class in the week proceeding exams. Having officially failed the fi-­ nal, Hertel failed Quantitative Methods. Since the course was a prerequisite for higher level eco-­ nomics courses, Hertel had to re-­ evaluate his academic plans. With help from his adviser, he realized that there was no way he could continue to pursue his double major and graduate on time. Her-­ tel had to downgrade one of his

two majors into a minor. “[I took] economics because my parents liked it, philosophy because I liked it,” said Hertel. “I, in the words of my mom, fol-­ lowed my passion [and] became a philosophy major with an eco-­ nomics minor.” Even though he is no lon-­ ger an economics major, he will still have to retake Quantitative Methods in order to complete the requirements for his minor. Despite its significant reper-­ cussions, Hertel remains upbeat about the experience, which he considers to have been a learning opportunity. Missing the exam motivated him to concentrate more on schoolwork, and his at-­ tempt to retake the test taught him how to stand up for himself. “Would I want to have learned this lesson exactly this way if I had the option to do it all over again? No,” Hertel said. “I don’t recommend someone miss their final ... but at the end of the day, good did come out of it.”

Santa Claus charity aids terminally ill children Student’s father has created his own North Pole at Santa’s “Hide-­A-­Way Hollow” Anna Duke Senior  Features  Writer Jordan Dieterle ’13 has been one of Santa Claus’s elves since she was in the eighth grade, but instead of mak-­ ing the toys, she is giving them to ter-­ minally ill children. Dieterle is part of a non-­profit charity called “Santa’s Hide-­A-­Way-­Hollow,” an organiza-­ tion that gives sick children and their families a chance to celebrate what could be their last Christmas in a memorable way. Santa, better known as Dieterle’s father, Bill, came up with the idea for the charity after fill-­ ing in for his father-­in-­law as a mall Santa Claus many years ago. Based in Middlefield, Ohio, the charity visits thousands of children spanning from Pittsburgh to Cincinnati. Bill Dieterle was inspired to start the organization after a nine-­year-­ old boy had an unusual answer to the question, “What would you like for Christmas?” The boy first responded with “nothing,” but when pushed fur-­ ther he said, “Santa, you know I am dying, just make my mommy happy,” as he pulled off his hat to show that he was bald from chemotherapy.

This boy changed Bill Dieterle’s perspective on life. Soon after, he started visiting hospitals during Christmas time dressed as Santa Claus to comfort sick children. These encounters inspired him to create the “North Pole” at his own home, so that children could escape the hospital, hang out with Santa and forget about their illness for a short period of time. Years later, the Dieterles moved to a 93-­acre plot of land where they created “Santa’s Village.” The Village consists of Santa’s house, a post of-­ fice, a general store, a barber shop, a bank, an overnight cabin, a tackle and bait shop, a reindeer barn and the Dieterles’ actual home. Children who feel well enough come to the village and spend the day with Santa and the elves, doing interactive activities at each shop. “At the bank there is a vault; the kids can put a wish in the vault,” says Dieterle. “The elves tell [the children] that not every wish can be granted, but Santa listens to all of their wishes and dreams.” The organization is run complete-­ ly by volunteers who spend their time helping the Dieterles bring

Christmas to children in hospitals, hospices and nursing facilities. Each time Santa visits a hospital, he ar-­ rives with an escort of police cars, ambulances and even a fire truck, all driven by volunteers. Accompany-­ ing him are volunteers dressed up as elves that help Santa pass out toys and talk with sick children. “When we [the elves] visit hospitals, every child gets a present [from Santa],” says Jordan. Jordan’s parents allowed her to start “elfing” when she was in the eighth grade, which was young compared to the other elves. “It was really hard be-­ cause I went to the hospitals and saw [the hardships] that were going on,” she confessed. “I didn’t understand the meaning of the charity until I could elf and see what was going on and how much good [my dad] is doing.” This year, Dieterle and her friend Maggie Roberts ’13, another elf for the charity, are trying to create awareness on Wooster’s campus and raise money for the seriously ill chil-­ dren. Roberts and Dieterle hosted a toy drive to gather gifts for the chil-­ dren in time for Christmas and sold t-­shirts to raise money for the cause.

As of Tuesday night, they have collected $600 through donations and t-­shirt orders. “I thought it would be a neat idea to pull together a service project that promotes the non-­profit,” says Roberts, who wants to ensure that Santa is able to travel

even greater distances to forever give many children a final Christmas. “Whether driven by charity, giv-­ ing, spending or even religion,” she added, “[Christmas] is a time of the year when people come together and realize what they are thankful for.”

Student launches hunger strike to pay tuition

Lee McKinstry Editor  In  Chief

It was June 6 when Amy*, a rising junior from Texas, opened her financial aid allocation letter from the College of Wooster. A few sentences in, she had to sit down. She would have to pay $10,000 more in tuition costs than the year be-­ fore, leaving a total of $22,000 standing between her and her junior year. Amy has been paying for college in-­ dependently since her first year, after her parents told her they would not offer her financial assistance. This year, she was also unable to find a co-­signer for loans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was such a huge gap between this year and last,â&#x20AC;? said Amy, a first-­gen-­ eration American minority student, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew I was going to have to stop spend-­ ing any money if I wanted to come back to Wooster.â&#x20AC;? But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not all she decided to do. By June 8, Amy had sketched out another fundraising plan, one she was well aware many people might find irrational and self-­destructive. She resolved to go on a 67-­day hun-­ ger strike, allowing herself to eat only when a small donation was made to her college fund. Amy called the project â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Starving Student Fund,â&#x20AC;? and that June she started a blog document-­ ing her unconventional fundrais-­ ing strategy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Paying for college is going to kill me sooner or later,â&#x20AC;? the home page reads, â&#x20AC;&#x153;to draw attention to [rising college tuition], I decided to start sooner rather than later.â&#x20AC;? A table on the website breaks down the fast into six hour increments. Be-­ ginning at 6 a.m. on Sept. 1, for every $37.50 raised, Amy would push back the beginning of the fast six hours. For ev-­ ery $150 raised, the strike would pause for a day. If she reached $10,000 before

Sept. 1, she wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to fast at all. Potential donors could make their con-­ tributions through PayPal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The idea of starving oneself for 67 days is crazy, and on my website I said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I know this is not safe,â&#x20AC;? said Amy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I decided to do this because it was the only thing that people would take seriously. I thought there needed to be a physical as-­ pect to this to show how strenuous this was and how far I was willing to go to complete college.â&#x20AC;? Amy remembered getting a couple of emails asking if â&#x20AC;&#x153;threatening to starve yourself â&#x20AC;? was a form of manipulation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only thing I could say was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Yes,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it also a form of ma-­ nipulation for a school to say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;xyzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; about why youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re an asset, and manipulate your thoughts and feelings about a school and then just turn the tables on you finan-­ cially? They knew my circumstances, but they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do anything. I felt worthless. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worth $10,000. I felt damaged. I felt like I had done something wrong.â&#x20AC;? Amy contacted the College after start-­ ing her project. Representatives from Fi-­ nancial Aid would not confirm whether they knew about her specific case.

holding down an unpaid internship at the Breakthrough Collaborative, a non-­ profit that helps high-­performing low income students become the first in their families to attend college. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had to juggle working at a strip club and being objectified every night and talking to kids all day about breaking the cycle of poverty through education,â&#x20AC;? said Amy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a weird summer.â&#x20AC;? According to federal guidelines, however, the College can offer her no more aid. Students must meet very specific guidelines in order to be considered â&#x20AC;&#x153;financially independentâ&#x20AC;? on their financial aid forms, including being married, a veteran or over the age of 24. Parents refusing to contribute to the studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education or being unwilling to provide information for FAFSA forms does not qualify as â&#x20AC;&#x153;unusualâ&#x20AC;? circumstances mer-­ iting more aid. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dependency overridesâ&#x20AC;? are done on a case-­by-­case basis, and are extremely hard to obtain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To be fair to all students, we cannot award additional aid when a parent is ca-­ pable of helping pay for college but is, or claims to be, unwilling,â&#x20AC;? said David Miller, director of Financial Aid. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Regrettably, we sometimes have to tell students we have already offered them all the aid for which they are eligible and we cannot in-­ crease their aid. This only happens after we have exhausted every reason-­ able avenue for increasing aid eligibility.â&#x20AC;? This year, other students are taking matters into their own hands. In conjunc-­ tion with the Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Advisory Board, Josh Ware â&#x20AC;&#x2122;13 and Sarah Kristeller â&#x20AC;&#x2122;13 are in the process of creating a scholar-­ ship for students in just these kinds of unusual situations. This year, both Ware and Kristeller were almost unable to re-­ turn to Wooster after unexpected finan-­ cial setbacks and family tragedies. Both found funds through federal loans and

ymous donors, old bosses and friends. Wooster also assisted her efforts, though through a surprising source. Chuck Wa-­ gers, Head of Dining Services, sent an email on her behalf to the office of the Dean of Students, asking if there were any other funds she should look into. As a result of that email, Amy received another $4,000 in aid. Combined with a Stafford loan and her original financial aid pack-­ age, her tuition, room and board are covered for her junior year. But Amy isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure how she feels about that. As she sits in the Wired Scot many months after she first uploaded her first blog post, she fidgets with a box of Tic Tacs, pausing while a gaggle of drunk girls passes from Momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. After all that planning and publicizing, Amy doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if Wooster was worth the effort. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come to Wooster, I would still be poor, I would probably still be in debt. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d still have circumstances outside of my control that would have really burdened me,â&#x20AC;? said Amy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But here, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m asking myself, am I just learning poor money management? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m spending ev-­ erything that I have on this school, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all I think about. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the time or means to grow up here.â&#x20AC;? Amy almost didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come back. She considered transferring, but thought she wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get as much aid at other institutions. Today, she seems deflated and tired, relating her frus-­ tration with Wooster with the dis-­ enchantment of an abandoned lover. Amy sigh, pulling out her phone to calculate once again how much debt sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll accumulate by graduation. She looks up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to look back on [Wooster] and say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I learned about how you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really feel like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re much of an investment until much later. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m go-­ ing to say I felt used.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?

Amyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s situation echoes those of many College of Wooster stu-­ dents, whose unusual economic difficulties still do not qualify them for federal financial aid.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I decided to do this because it was the only thing that people would take seriously.â&#x20AC;? -­ Amy Amyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s situation echoes those of many College of Wooster students, whose un-­ usual economic difficulties still do not qualify them for federal financial aid. Amy has held back from declaring herself an independent on her tax returns so that she can stay on her parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; health care plan. Amyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents, however, have never put a cent into her college fund and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been saving money since middle school for her college tuition expenses. Two summers ago she worked as a waitress in a strip club to make money, while also

other scholarships, but felt unsatisfied with the options offered to students with unexpected financial woes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was a need for this kind of emergency fund,â&#x20AC;? said Kristeller, â&#x20AC;&#x153;A small scholarship like $1000 can make the dif-­

ference between being able to come back or not.â&#x20AC;? They began working with Wendy Barlow from the Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Advsiroy Board to establish an emergency fund for students who have encountered unfore-­ seen economic obstacles that the College cannot cover. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be for a situation outside the scope of any scholarship,â&#x20AC;? said Ware. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has a lot less to do with true dis-­ satisfaction with the administration, but does have a lot to do with the fact that people tend to overlook unique finan-­ cial situations which arise. Speaking as a child of government assistance grow-­ ing up, and poverty, it is easy to forget that not all people in dire financial situ-­ ations fit into the preconceived regula-­ tions which aid and assistance come attached with. The Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Advisory Board, Sarah, and I have worked to come up with a solution for when the next student in an unforeseen dire monetary emergency falls into a trap like we did.â&#x20AC;? They hope the fund will be available to students starting next year. And what about Amy? Well, it turns out she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to fast after all. With one week left before school started, she had raised $9,976. Her friends gifted her the last $24. The funds came from anon-­

For the first time in program history, the Wooster Moot Court team has won all three of the tour-­ naments it competed in during the academic year. The team, which won nationals in 2008, has never won more than two tournaments in a season before now. (Moot court pairs include two people and have one chance at nationals, com-­ peting in one tournament each.) The first tournament, held in Dubuque, Iowa, was a success, with Luke Tonat â&#x20AC;&#x2122;15 and Tyler Hoff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;14 taking first place. They, along with Alex Downs â&#x20AC;&#x2122;16 and Erica Rickey â&#x20AC;&#x2122;14, qualified for na-­ tionals. The tournament held at Wooster also ended in a Wooster victory, with Rachel Myers â&#x20AC;&#x2122;14 and Rachel Shonebarger â&#x20AC;&#x2122;13 tak-­ ing first. Ben Taylor â&#x20AC;&#x2122;16, Alex Ford â&#x20AC;&#x2122;14, Daniel Cohen â&#x20AC;&#x2122;14 and Christina Polet â&#x20AC;&#x2122;13 also qualified for nationals. Most recently, Wooster took the top two spots in Saginaw, Mich. Andrea Patton â&#x20AC;&#x2122;14 and Ste-­ phen Perrot â&#x20AC;&#x2122;13 took first, and Eric Petry â&#x20AC;&#x2122;14 and Mae Manu-­ pipatpong â&#x20AC;&#x2122;14 took second. Both teams qualified for nationals as well. In another unprecedented se-­ ries of victories, Wooster stu-­ dents took first in the orator competitions at all three tourna-­ ments. Rickey, Shonebarger and Patton each claimed a first place title. As of the latest tournament in Saginaw, seven Wooster teams have qualified to go to nationals. Each competing school can bring a maximum of eight teams. This year, however, a rule change has made it slightly more difficult to qualify the max-­ imum number. The rule elimi-­ nated â&#x20AC;&#x153;bracket breakingâ&#x20AC;? on day two of the tournaments, meaning that Wooster teams often end up

Moot Court captain Perrot an-­ ticipates filling all eight spots this year in spite of the rule change. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It looks like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to qualify eight [teams],â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Qualifying eight teams is nor-­ mal for Wooster, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unheard of for other schools.â&#x20AC;? With regards to the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chances at nationals this year,

â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a team, I feel really strong,â&#x20AC;? said Collins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a safety net.â&#x20AC;? Both captains stressed that the competition will be stiffer this year, but that the Wooster team is up for the challenge. Perrot said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It takes more than a few good teams to win three tournaments.â&#x20AC;? This year, no other moot court team in the circuit has won more than one tournament. The teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coach, Professor of Political Science Mark Weaver, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel optimistic. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been doing very well on the second day [of competition].â&#x20AC;? However, Weaver added the caveat that several unexpected teams have been doing well in other tournaments and could bring some stiff competition to nationals. Nonetheless, Weaver is enthusiastic about Woosterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chances. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year has brought more success than weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever had be-­ fore,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Perrot is confident. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a program in the country that will be stronger than us,â&#x20AC;? he said. Both Perrot and his fellow captain, Amanda Collins â&#x20AC;&#x2122;13, feel that the possibil-­ ity of the whole group going to nationals is strong.

If so, then the 1965 version of the Walt Disney movie â&#x20AC;&#x153;That Darn Catâ&#x20AC;? is the perfect gift to satisfy her cat fancy. The movie is about an ad-­ venturous tomcat who witnesses a robbery. He is then followed by the FBI in the hopes that it will lead them back to the robberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hideout, result-­ ing in a comical chase for justice. Your grandma is sure to have a blast watch-­ ing this movie, especially since itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably based on her life story.

For Your Potter Obsessed Roommate You may be at a loss for ideas when it comes to finding a gift for your Harry Potter-­obsessed roommate.

You may re-­ member the book of childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stories mentioned in the last Harry Potter book, but did you know J.K. Rowling actually wrote the stories? And if your room-­ mate already owns the tales, you might even go a step further and get him or her the Collectors Edition, a replica of the real book from the movie series!

Although I would suggest this movie for a younger rela-­ tive, anyone can enjoy this hilarious retelling of Dickenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s classic â&#x20AC;&#x201D; if not then â&#x20AC;&#x153;bah humbugâ&#x20AC;? to you!

THE SCENE â&#x20AC;&#x2122;TWAS THE WEEK BEFORE BREAK

For the Scene this week, I decided to share a little Christmas spirit with everyone and offer you all a story to read on the eve of your finals. I wish ever yone the best of luck on all your tests BROOKE  SKIBA and papers and have a wonderful Winter Break! â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Twas the week before Winter Break and all across the College, * Not a student was stirring, they were busy getting knowledge. * Papers were typed and the books were all open. * The library was filled and few words were heard spoken. * The line at MacLeods wound out the door. * The students needed coffee, and then needed some more. * There was not yet room for holiday spirit in the air, * When about our last finals was all we could care. * Those without sleep took naps on their desks, * While daydreams of Quesadilla Mondays danced through their rest. * My roommate with her laptop and I with my textbook, * Had been working all day, you could tell from one look. * When before too long there arose such a sound, * I woke with a start and looked all around. * It was my alarm, so I quickly looked outside, * To see the daylight and my eyes opened wide. * The sun gleaming off the new-­ fallen snow, * Reminded me I had a final soon; I thought â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh no!â&#x20AC;? * I pulled on my clothes, so lively and quick. * I tried to keep studying, but it just made me sick. * More rapid than reindeer I rushed to my class, * Through snow falling wildly, covering the grass. * I ran through the front door to the very top floor! * Prof said â&#x20AC;&#x153;almost time,â&#x20AC;? then â&#x20AC;&#x153;time to start, we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait any more!â&#x20AC;? * With a wink of his eye and a twist of his hands, * The prof passed out the tests and laid out his demands * â&#x20AC;&#x153;You must finish in three hoursâ&#x20AC;? he said. * And he told us to start, my mind filling with dread. * As short twigs that before the wild tornado fly, * Rapidly blown and spiraling into the sky, * As quickly did our pencils move, * Across every test paper in that very classroom. * And then in a twinkling, I heard my prof say, * â&#x20AC;&#x153;The test is now over, put your pencils away!â&#x20AC;? * Faces full of relief were seen all around, * And out the door everyone ran with a bound. * My eyes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; how they twinkled, my only final done. * Before I had two goals, now I had but one. * My tired little mouth drew up like a bow, * Knowing now I only had to get myself home. * I packed all my bags, then turned with a jerk. * I sprang to my car and prayed it would work. * The engine started but ere I drove out of sight, * I called out, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You all still have tests, good luck and good night!!â&#x20AC;?

Women’s basketball equals 2011-12

NFL DETAILS EMERGE IN CHIEFS MURDER-SUICIDE Less than a week after Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher fatally shot his girlfriend before turning the gun on himself, details have emerged from multiple sources about the build-up to the murdersuicide. According to ESPN, the Chiefs were aware of the relationship problems between Belcher and his girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, and had offered the couple counseling. Deadspin reported that a friend of Belcher’s described him as “dazed and suffering from shortterm memory loss” following a game against Cincinnati on Nov. 18. Belcher’s friend also thought that alcohol and painkillers may have been involved in the incident. The toxicology report on Belcher’s body has not come back yet.

MLB A-ROD TO MISS START OF NEXT SEASON The New York Yankees announced on Monday that third baseman Alex Rodriquez will need to undergo hip surgery, and could be relegated to the disabled list for the first half of the 2013 season. Since October, Rodriquez has been suffering from a torn labrum, bone impingement and a cyst in his left hip. The treatment required for these ailments require lengthy preparation and recovery time, particularly for an older player, and the Yankees do not expect the 37-year-old to return to the game before the All-Star break. Rodriquez is one of the highest-paid players in the leauge, and is owed $114 million by New York over the next five years.

Lincoln Plews Sports  Staff  Writer After starting the season with two consecutive wins against Franciscan University and Westminster College in the Nan Nichols Classic, the women’s basketball team stumbled with a loss against Bluffton University to fall to 2-­1 going into this past Thursday’s game against Allegheny College. The Scots lost to the Allegheny Gators 64-­50 on Nov. 28, but bounced back to beat the Hiram Terriers 61-­54 this past Saturday to move to 3-­2 on the season (1-­1 in NCAC). The game against Allegheny was back-­and-­forth for the majority of the first half, with the Gators carrying a slim 29-­23 margin into the break. Allegheny came out firing early in the second half,

NCAA FOOTBALL HEISMAN FINALISTS ANNOUNCED The finalists for the Heisman Trophy, the award bestowed to college football’s best player, were announced on Monday. Attending the ceremony in New York City will be Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein, Notre Dame linbeacker Manti Te’o and Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel. Klein was the Heisman favorite for the majority of the season, leading the Wildcats to the best season in school history behind 39 total touchdowns. Te’o is a rare defensive Heisman finalist, acting as the leader of an intimidating Irish defense that went undefeated and is heading to the National Championship Game. Manziel was the season’s biggest surprise, a redshirt freshman who compiled 4600 yards of total offense to lead the Aggies to a 10-2 record.

going on an 11-­4 run in the first six minutes to take a more substantial 13-­point lead. The Scots rallied to draw the game within six points with nine minutes to play, but Allegheny guard Makenzie Zidek hit a three pointer on the next possession to stop the run. The Gators kept the lead in double digits for most of the remainder of the game. Allegheny displayed a particular knack for getting to the free throw line in the game, going 23-­30 from the charity stripe while Wooster shot only six free throws, making five of them. With the sting of the Allegheny loss still fresh in their minds, the Scots stepped onto the court against Hiram this past Saturday ready to play. The Scots used a strong 13-­point, seven-­rebound first half performance from center Jessica Wingen ’13 to take a commanding 32-­18 lead at the halftime buzzer.

The second half also started well for Wooster, with Karley Walker ’14 sinking a three pointer just six seconds into the period to push the lead to 17. The Scots maintained a double digit lead for most of the game, but a 10-­4 run by the Terriers narrowed the advantage to seven with 3:15 remaining. Hiram’s efforts came up short, however, as they would get no closer than seven in the final three minutes and Wooster held on to win the game 61-­54. Notable performances from the Fighting Scots came from guard Karley Walker ’14, who put up 17 points, four rebounds and five assists while shooting 64 percent from the floor. Guard Katelyn Dymek ’16 had a great game off the bench, nearly securing a double-­double with 10 points and nine rebounds in her best offensive performance of the season.

Men’s basketball dominates Wittenberg on the road Travis Marmon Sports  Editor      

The Wooster men’s basketball team made a statement on Saturday as it took down archrival Wittenberg University 60-­41 in Springfield, Ohio. The Scots have a new look this year, but their defense dominated the Tigers, who have traditionally been one of the better teams in the NCAC. Wooster held Wittenberg to a staggeringly bad 16-­of-­56 from the field, including four three-­ pointers on 18 attempts. The offense was hot, shooting 23-­ of-­45 from the field and led by 12 points from Xavier Brown ’15. Jake Mays ’13 had the best all-­around game, contributing 10 points, eight rebounds and a blocked shot. Mays hit a layup in the middle of the first half to put the Scots

up 16-­4, and they never looked back. A 16-­12 deficit was as close as the Tigers could get for the rest of the game, as Wooster simply overpowered them. The Scots ended the first half on a 14-­4 run to go into the locker room ahead 30-­16. Wooster maintained a double-­ digit lead for the entirety of the second half, never leading by less than 14. The Scots earned their largest lead of the game with three minutes to play in the game, when Doug Thorpe ’14’s layup put the team ahead 58-­33. Not everything went perfectly for Wooster. The team committed 19 turnovers, which could have cost them if the game had been closer. Despite the turnovers, the Tigers failed to score a single point on the fast break. Wooster also outrebounded them 41-­25. This victory was the most complete one for the Scots on their four-­game road trip, during

which they went undefeated, improving their record to 5-­1 on the season (2-­0 NCAC). Wooster beat Baldwin-­Wallace College 81-­74 on Nov. 20; Oberlin College 74-­66 on Nov. 25; and Ohio Northern University 67-­56 on Nov. 28. The Scots will play their final home game of the semester tomorrow when they take on conference rival Wabash College at 2 p.m. in Timken Gymnasium. Over winter break, Wooster will travel to Kenyon College on Dec. 14, then travel to Lexington, Ky. to play Transylvania University on Dec. 18 and the College of Mount St. Joseph on Dec. 19. Wooster will host John Carroll University on Dec. 28 and Marietta College on Dec. 29, then open the new year on the road at Sheridan College (Canada) on Jan. 4 and Hiram College on Jan. 9.

GUEST  COLUMN

Te’o undeserving of Heisman despite team success I bet Lou Holtz and Digger Phelps are in heaven right now. Yes, it is a great time to be a Notre Dame fan. T h e Fighting Irish have just capped off a stellar ETHAN NICHOL u n d e f e at e d season when they beat USC on primetime television and were recently selected to play in the BCS National Championship Game against defending national champ, Alabama. The game, regardless of outcome, should prove to be a great one for college football.

For starters, Notre Dame is notorious for its strong fan base that traditionally travels well. Not to mention, Notre Dame fans are not geographically centralized, like Oklahoma or Boise State, primarily due to their school’s strong religious affiliation. In fact, experts are already predicting that this may be one of the most watched title games ever. This makes sense because these are two of the most storied programs in college football history. All I have to say is Bear Bryant, Knute Rockne, Rudy and Roll Tide. In fact, between the two teams, they have won 17 national championships combined.

But even though this might be a good matchup in every sense, there has been an unfortunate consequence: the awakening of the irrational Notre Dame fan. It is funny how they all came out of the woodwork this season. But I can handle that. What I cannot handle are all the illogical claims made by Notre Dame fans. The most ridiculous I have heard is that Manti Te’o should win the Heisman. ESPN.com reports that Manti Te’o had 101 total tackles, 1.5 sacks and seven interceptions. Nobody is questioning whether Te’o had a good season, but it was not Heisman worthy. Just for comparison’s sake, Ohio

State’s Ryan Shazier has more tackles (116) and sacks (five) and a pick-­six, yet he is not in talks for the Heisman. Te’o is the emotional backbone of this Notre Dame team but last time I checked the Heisman was given to the best player in college football, not the one with the most “heart.” Te’o is a defensive force, but has not put any points on the board for his team. For crying out loud, he hasn’t even forced a single fumble this year. The last time anyone who even played defense won the Heisman was in 1997 when Charles Woodson of Michigan won it. However, Woodson accounted for four touchdowns on offense

and special teams and also had eight interceptions on top of that. Te’o doesn’t have near that kind of all-­around impact. Furthermore, a Notre Dame fan might argue anymore the Heisman usually goes to the best player from the best team. Oh really? Explain Robert Griffin III and his 9-­3 Baylor team last year or Troy Smith and his 2006 Ohio State team who was stomped by Florida in the title game. Don’t get me wrong; I love Te’o and his story. I even follow him on Twitter. He is clearly a very special player marked by a special season, but the fact remains that his Heisman hopes should remain just that: hopes.

Swimming and diving hosts Wooster Invitational meet Julie Kendall Sports  Editor      

The College of Wooster swimming and diving teams hosted the Wooster Invitational last weekend, which took place Thursday through Sunday at Wooster High School’s Ellen Shapiro Natatorium and featured 10 Div. II and Div. III teams from the Ohio and Pennsylvania areas. The women’s team took third place, while the men’s team broke five program records on their way to a sixth-­place finish. Combined, the Scots totaled five event victories and six times that qualified as “B” cuts for the NCAA Div.-­III Championships. The women’s team totaled 1,262 points, placing them first for teams in their division. Big points came from the 200 and 400 freestyle relay teams, both finishing third with a lineup of Kate Hunt ’13, Mariah McGovern ’14, Clare Walsh ’13 and Morgan Hughes ’15. Their team times were 1:37.85 and 3:35.49, respectively. Highlighting the individual results was Hunt, who earned NCAA Div.-­ III “B” cut times in both butterfly events. She was the champion of the 100 butterfly (56.63) and placed second in the 200 butterfly (2:05.53). Additionally, Hunt finished fourth in the 50 free (24.30). Kara Markham ’14 put up a

Samira El-­ Adawy ’13 finished within the top-­five for three different events, including the 400 IM (4:38.19, second place), 200 IM (2:11.05, fourth place) and 200 backstroke (2:09.72, fifth place).

Additional highlights came from Hughes, who finished fifth in the 100 free (53.21), sixth in the 50 free (24.60) and seventh in the 100 fly (59.19). McGovern’s top individual performance came in the 500 free, where she placed fourth with a time of 5:16.38. Caroline Hanson ’13 and Kaitlyn Fries ’15 finished fourth

and sixth, respectively, in the 200 breaststroke (2:30.71 and 2:31.93). The men’s team, which scored 837 points to finish in the middle of the field, featured record-­breaking performances from Peter Parisi ’13, Alex LaJoie ’13 and Brian Maddock ’15. Parisi surpassed his own school records and made NCAA Div. III

“B” cuts in the 100 butterfly (49:83) where he finished in third, and the 100 breaststroke (56.99) where he took fourth place. Parisi also contributed big points via a second-­place finish in the 50 free (21.45). LaJoie’s record-­breaking 200 backstroke performance came in the prelims (1:52.81). He would go on to place second in the event’s finals with a slightly slower time of 1:54.95. LaJoie also placed second in the 100 back (51.42) and fourth in the 200 IM (1:56.40). Both LaJoie and Maddock surpassed the previous school record in the 100 backstroke (52.38), with LaJoie earning second place (51.42) and Maddock coming in fourth (52.01). The team of Parisi, LaJoie, Maddock and Imre Namath ’13 also reset their previous record in the 200 medley relay, earning third place and a “B” cut time of 1:34.47. The Scots put up several more strong relay performances, including a win in the 400 free relay. The team of Elliot Ferrier ’16, Joe Wilch ’13, Evan Hagedorn ’15 and Zach Rashid ’15 took first with a time of 3:25.93. The 400 medley relay team of Zackary Pool ’16, Hagedorn, Steven Hardy ’14 and James Love ’15 finished third with a time of 3:40.45. The Scots will break from competition until Jan. 12, when they will travel to Ohio Wesleyan for an inter-­conference dual meet.
