Tennessee Williams’ Garden District, two one-act plays, had their final showing Sunday to a sold-out Kennedy-McIlwee Studio Theatre. Both plays contained themes of homosexuality and human desire that were considered even more sensational during Williams’ time. Lynda Clark, who played Violet
Venable, and Jan Morgan, who played Cornelia Scott, were both featured guests in the plays. Yamila Monge, a freshman in psychology, portrayed Sister Felicity in Suddenly, Last Summer. “In the play, I was basically protecting [Catherine Holly],” Monge said. “Tennessee Williams always has this thing against the Catholic Church and I’m more of a metaphor than anything else.” Playing the character had its trials and tribulations, Monge said. “Personally, being a nun was kind of difficult because in real life I’m the opposite of a nun. I’m really loud and
outspoken. Being more concerned and reserved, that took a lot of work,” Monge said. Monge further detailed how she was able to collaborate with Lynda Clark. “Just the way she prepares for a role, she becomes the person, like she feels the emotions and she expresses it in everything…and I just thought that wasn’t an easy thing to do,” Monge said. “I learned so much from what she had to offer and I’m glad I was able to work with her.”

Jaimie Harwood, a senior in English, explained how she had a similar experience as the character Miss Foxhill. “Every scene I was in, Lynda was in,” Harwood said. “It was good to just watch her and her process. She put emotion into every second…and even little things throughout the process that she would tell us, like ‘Lines are the least important things that an actor does while onstage.’ It kind of struck a chord with me because I’m always big on lines. I need to learn my lines, I need to do them right.” Harwood also gave credit to John McIlwee, the director. Harwood said, “I love John McIlwee. He kind of gave us guidelines and let us go with it wherever we wanted to and if he needed to rein us in, he’d rein us in. He always told us, ‘You can do more, just keep going.’” Before its premiere Sunday, the show entirely sold out. Jillian Varner, a senior clerk
for Ticket Central, said, “They weren’t sold out until probably sometime in the beginning or middle of October. But what happened was University Theatre sold a lot of seats this year over the summer so a lot of the tickets were season ticket holders and we didn’t have very many individual tickets left available to sell for such a small theater.” While the overall revenues have yet to be determined, it’s predicted they will be substantial. Varner said, “I don’t know how much [total] we’ve made but we’ve sold out every show, or if not, we’ve had one or two tickets left for every show and [the theatre] seats about 100 people.” Tennessee Williams’ popularity as a playwright is one theory about why the show sold so well. Monge said, “Tennessee Williams is a big deal and I think people are like ‘Oh, Tennessee Williams, let’s go see!’ and it wasn’t your ordinary play, so people are interested.” The speculation of Kennedy-
McIlwee Studio Theatre being relatively small didn’t persuade Harwood. “I mean it is a smaller theatre but I don’t know if that’s why it sold out though because it sold so far in advance,” Harwood said. Harwood and Varner believed it could be chalked up to the presence of the featured guest artists. “Lynda Clark and Jan Morgan could be why it has sold out. Since they’re so well known that they must have a following as well,” Harwood said. Varner said, “I think it helps that they have two professional actresses in the show. I think that’s kind of a draw because it’s great to see students but it’s kind of cool to see professionals.” Regardless, Garden District’s final showing proved a success after the cast was showered with applause. “I’m sad to see it go; it’s kind of bittersweet,” Harwood said. “But if you’re not good with goodbyes, then you shouldn’t be doing theatre.”
The celebration included traditional performances, exhibits and decorations. Rawal said that the event also included traditional Indian food. “Maitri celebrates this festival every year and encourages artistic expression through vibrant traditional performances, unique exhibits and colorful decorations. Each year, this event dazzles the crowd with a colorful and energetic cultural program combined with exotic Indian food,” said Rawal. According to Malladi, fire regulations limited the use of fireworks for the celebration. Additional problems
with scheduling arose due to Halloween and the football game, but Maitri was still able to make the event a success. “Strict fire hazard regulations in USA make it very difficult to use even consumer fireworks (with good reason). So the event couldn’t showcase exactly what Diwali is like back in India. Clashes with Halloween and the N.C. State-UNC game prevented any flexibility in dates. Continuous rain and cold wind made matters worse as all indoor venues were booked solid. Despite this we managed to pull people out into the cold in their traditional attire and dance into the cold till 9 p.m.,” Malladi said. She said that change in the way of celebration did not affect the zeal and spirit of those who attended the event.
“With the change in lifestyle being in a different country, the way Diwali is celebrated may have changed, but the zeal and the spirit of the celebration was still the same,” Rawal said. Haritha Malladi said that many Americans turned up and enjoyed the food, dance and Bollywood tunes. “There were also many Americans and other international students who also stopped by,” Malladi said. Kyle Ray O’Donnell, a senior in textile technology who was present at the event, said he enjoyed the event with his friends. “I really enjoyed coming out here to celebrate Diwali festival with my Indian friends, and after a hard day at college, it is great to have such a cultural experience,” O’Donnell said.

N.C. State and UNC deserve flagship status T
N.C. State defeated longtime rival UNC-CH 13-0 for the fifth-straight year last Saturday. The rivalry between the two Universities encompasses both athletics and academics.
UNC and N.C. State are both necessary for North Carolina’s collegiate prestige and both serve a need for the state. Therefore, N.C. State and UNC both deserve flagship status.
he term “flagship” has evolved over the years to include the best and most important members of various industries and institutions. In the educational institution, a flagship is the primary University associated with each state. After N.C. State’s fifthconsecutive win over UNCCH at football, N.C. State will be the name associated with North Carolina in the near future. However, N.C. State and UNC share flagship status in North Carolina. Flagship status isn’t just about athletics, though this is often the criteria used due to extensive athletic publicity. Even if flagship were about athletics, there would still be dispute. N.C. State may have proved

its superiority in football, but UNC basketball continuously ranks higher. In academics, the Universities prevail in different domains. UNC is known for its health sciences and law school, and quality of education in the humanities continuously ranks higher than N.C. State every year. But N.C. State holds its place in engineering and agriculture, two areas in which UNC cannot compete. The starting median salary right out of N.C. State, according to PayScale, is $46,500, while Chapel Hill’s starting median salary sits at $42,100.
The median salary mid-career from N.C. State is $83,200 and the mid-career salary from UNC is $79,200. Though both statistics show N.C. State sitting at a higher median salary, the stats mostly reflect the fact that engineering majors receive a higher average salary than humanities majors. Regardless, the starting salaries and mid-career salaries at both schools are high. No other North Carolina schools come close to these numbers, especially when it comes to midcareer salaries. When it comes down to it, N.C. State and UNC are ul-
timately rivals because it is difficult to determine which school is better. In fact, neither school is better than the other. The state needs both schools to maintain its high level of educational and athletic prestige, and both institutions have assets which, together, make North Carolina one of the greatest states in terms of collegiate quality. Neither school would maintain its flagship status without the other, and both universities serve different but equally important needs to the state. When one thinks of North Carolina, both UNC and N.C. State are guaranteed to come to mind.

Do you consider NCSU to be a flagship university? Why or why not?

Austerity is no longer a luxury
ven though it has been nearly four years since the recession, economic recovery is nowhere in sight. Discussions on the economy rarely interest people any more. People now realize that this downturn has been different f rom the troughs of the regula r business cycle, a nd may Shivalik just come Daga Staff Columnist to def ine a period of lost opportunities for this generation. The past decade was spent in the shadows of terrorism and pyrrhic victories in far flung lands, but this time the battle seems to be within, and without any end in sight. Though GDP grew by 2.5 percent this quarter, debt concerns in Europe have not improved moods. Couple this with stubbornly high unemployment, rising budget deficits, rating downgrades and the now viral ‘Occupy’ protests and a picture of great anguish appears. Yet despite all this, the biggest reason to worry for the American citizens could well lie elsewhere. Student debt, which recently crossed the $1 trillion mark, roughly 7 percent of the GDP, is a very serious concern facing a lot of students at N.C. State as well. Recently one of my classmates said that he was seriously considering living out
of his car next semester. He said he would sleep in the library, take showers at the gym and keep all his belongings in his car. On Fridays and Saturdays when D.H. Hill library closes for the night, he said he would simply go home every weekend. At first, I thought he was just fooling around and laughed it off. But a few days later he again raised the topic, saying this would help him save around $5,000 on his student loan, and give him something to brag about to his kids. While I seriously hope he reconsiders this arrangement, I could not help but think how serious this problem is. Given the severity of the problem, I think the only solution to this is simply to study harder and make yourself more employable. Now, good grades have always been fairly important, but now they are critical to your future. This is not to say that employers tolerated mediocrity in the good old days, but when an employer can only hire 3 people instead of 12, it is natural for you to become more selective and set higher standards for acceptance. Right now the biggest help you could do yourself would be to push yourself harder. Push yourself to meet higher expectations, not only because it’s smart, but because that is now a requirement. The recession has hit the country hard, and we simply can not wish it away—or we would have done that long ago. Coming back to my friend, I do not advocate taking such an extreme action, but the fact is that we do need to reexamine our lifestyle and realistically adjust to the current situation.

Hard times call for cutbacks in luxuries and expenditure, and crying foul over the matter will not help. My friend currently lives on campus, which as we all know is more expensive compared to an off-campus apartment. For saving money, you could simply shift to an apartment at any of the close off-campus locations like Avent Ferry or Gorman. I read an interesting survey in the British magazine The Economist a few days back, in which Americans were polled on what they spend their income on. The survey showed a steep decline, close to 40 percent, compared to 2010 values, in the amount of money people now spend on alcohol and beverages. This shows that people are really sobering up, or at least that it was always possible, but there was no incentive for it. The survey also showed a rise of nearly 15 percent in the amount of money people spent on reusable goods and repair services. These facts bare the truth that cutting wasteful expenditure is a need of the times, not just for students, but for people in general. For students it holds greater importance simply because they will be starting their careers with higher debt in highly uncertain times. Everyone is concerned about the budget deficit, and politicians are busy searching austerity measures for the country. It is high time we did the same for ourselves.

Fighting stereotypes through film The Lebanese Film Festival shows a different angle of the Middle East. Story By Eric Rizzo
ith America i n a post9/11 world, the image of the Middle East has confronted ma ny misconstrued views. This is exactly what Akram Khater, director of the Middle East Studies program, is trying to prevent through a Lebanese film series he developed. “After 9/11, we found that people’s ideas and impressions about the Middle East, including Lebanon, tended to be fairly negative,” Khater said. “We have been working very hard, as part of the Middle East Studies P rog r a m to change that.” Akram Khater The K hay- Professor of Middle Eastern ra lla h Club, Studies and which “serves film festival to resea rch, organizer document, preserve and publicize the history and culture of the Lebanese community in North Carolina,” according to Khater, is organizing the event. The club is particularly interested in showing Lebanese culture, through the film festival, in a way that doesn’t involve violence and conflict, according to Khater. The film festival is a product of a new and emerging film industry in the Middle East, according to Khater. “What you’re finding today in the Middle East and North
Africa, is there’s a new generation of filmmakers, there’s a revival of cinema,” Khater said. “There’s more funding for filmmaking, the filmmakers, themselves, are better trained, many of them are being trained in Europe and there are a lot more film festivals.” The three films chosen are the best of their genre—documentaries. According to Khater, documentaries are a new style of film for Middle Eastern film writers and cinematographers. Khater traveled to Lebanon and attended film festivals to choose the best three documentaries for the film festival. “We chose these filmmakers partly because they are focusing on Lebanon but also because they are representing the best of this emerging genre of documentary filmmaking,” Khater said. After the showing of each of the three films, there is a question and answer session with the director of the film. According to Khater, when he went to the Lebanese film festivals, he interviewed potential filmmakers for the N.C. State film festival. After choosing the filmmakers he thought were best, Khater invited them to come to N.C. State. The first film of the festival was shown Thursday, the Erdahl-Cloyl Theater was packed, with 200 students and members of the community. According to Khater, they actually had to turn people away. “I thought it was amazing, so heartening,” Khater said. The purpose, according to Khater, of the Khayrallah Club is not only to educate the students of N.C. State, but also the surrounding community,

which was well represented by the crowd for the first film. After the screening of 12 Angry Lebanese: The Documentary, which reported on the use of drama therapy in an overcrowded, Lebanese prison, Jocelyne Abi Gebrayel, director of photography, answered questions about the film. Abi Gebrayel did all of the filming for free and did not get paid for her work until the film began winning awards. According to Abi Gebrayel, the film wasn’t meant for the public at first, but as proof that drama therapy in prisons was working, for the funders of the program. Drama therapy is a new technique to engage in-
mates in thespian productions to keep them occupied and as a way for them to express themselves. “There are a lot of things you can put,” Abi Gebrayel said, “and a lot of things you can’t put in a film [in Lebanon].” According to Abi Gebrayel, she actually had to sneak out of the room they were allowed to film in to get shots of the prison. “I definitely liked how it showed the different people that participated in the play and the transformations of the prisoners, that it helped them find hope,” Kayla Squicciarini, a junior in international studies, said.

nior in criminology, said the documentary ref lected the irony of the inmates situation. “I liked that their play was related to their situation; and I learned that even though these prisoners were convicted of heinous crimes, they could still act civilized.” Despite one’s interest in Lebanese culture, the films educate students on issues in the Middle East that go beyond preconceived notions on the region. However, according to Khater, the films address very specific issues, making the feature a double benefit.

New hit comes from Sweden
of the week Hearts
I Break Horses Bella Union
I Break Horses produces record just in time to lift the spirits for winter. Mark Herring Features Editor

When many people think of Swedish music in America, the infamous 1970 Stockholm sensation ABBA comes to mind. However, Sweden has more to offer than IKEA and the cultural experiment of Dancing Queen. I Break Horses brings more to the table with a new album that balances playful electronics, dreamy vocals and modest Scandinavian wit. Hearts, which came out in the end of August, reached the States in time for the approaching winter. As experts in staying upbeat despite crumby temperatures and weather, the Swedish duo brings forth a nostalgic sound of childhood playfulness and echoing vocals of Maria Lindén. The top song of the LP has to be Winter Beats; with a contagious rhythm and a simple and cyclical chord progression this song, just like the album, transcends the simple foundation it’s rooted in. This debut album f lows from song to song and despite the band’s youth, the duo has established a characteristic sound based in dreamy simplicity. The electronic and synth beats accent the overall simplicity of the album. Each song presents a moderate background of pop and off-beat indie surrealism.

This balance of pep and nostalgia and lack of in-your-face pretension is representative of the Swedish concept of lagom. This culturally defining aspect of everything Swedish comes from the Viking origin of “enough, sufficient, adequate, just right,” referring to the fair sharing of mead in the ancient civilization, according to the Lexin Scandinavian language dictionary. Although some of the band’s pensive songs that feel like they’re floating may be influenced by the inspiration of honey liquor, I Break Horses embraces lagom exceptionally well. Each song is modest, not over the edge, but not boring. Just like a traditional Smörgåsbord dinner—never rowdy, never boring but in the middle—lagom. Lindén and band partner Fredrik Balck have created a sound for indie enthusiasts around the world to enjoy and their inspiring and uplifting sound transcends cultural boundaries. The fact that they sing in English helps American

audiences too. But lyrics are irrelevant. The echoing and drawn out vocals hypnotize listeners rather than preach to them. This is comparable to fellow Scandinavian band Sigur Rós. This Icelandic band, with similar ethereal style like I Break Horses, relies on the use of atmospheric instrumental soundscapes to carry the message of the song rather than the lyrics. After listening to Hearts, the drudgery of the inevitable winter isn’t so bad. This music is a true soul lifter and will definitely be on my exam-week study playlist. Hopefully it will inject some well needed logam into that week.

listening to us.” However, nighttime tells a different story. According to Powell, the nights spent at the Capitol are up in the air. “The cops have a little more leeway to do what they want with us since we’re fewer in number,” Powell said. “Sometimes it’s just a few people struggling in the cold and the wind, sometimes people have a dance party and they play music and dance.” Police crackdowns have become part of Occupy Raleigh’s largest struggle. “At night, it gets cold and a little scary because we get raided,” Cronmiller said. “The cops come out and tell us to do things. That’s usually when the action happens. They tell us to move our stuff here, move our stuff there, you can do this, stand up, sit down, don’t lay down, do lay down. There’s a lot of inconsistency.” Powell said she hopes the changing rules and inconsistent jurisdiction will soon change. “The mayor has picked up on what’s going on and has brought to the city council a question of why we have been arrested and making sure our first amendment rights haven’t been completely trampled,” Powell said. “Our biggest struggle has definitely been inconsistent police and lack of supplies.” Last week, while Powell was protesting, police arrived at 8 a.m. and ordered protesters to rid of their supplies by 9, according to Powell. “The other morning was the first in quite a few days where they did not say that, and I think it’s because we had more people and they thought we weren’t as vulnerable,” Powell

bit.” The pick not only breaks the school record, but puts Amerson in an earshot of matching, or even breaking, the singleseason ACC record for interceptions, which, ironically, is held by former UNC player Dre Bly with 11. The NCAA record is 14. Amerson has already drawn attention from the conference, earning two conference defensive player of the week honors, from the Jim Thorpe Award voting committee, given to the top defensive back in the nation, and from his coach, Tom O’Brien. “He has great instincts and I think he has very good ability,” O’Brien said. “He’s a kid that has only been playing with us for two years, so he’s learned it from the ground up. From day one he’s come in and been coached to do what we want to
do. “When the ball’s in the air, David has a knack for going and finding it.” With three games remaining on the year, the Greensboro native has a chance to reach, if not exceed, the conference record – if quarterbacks keep throwing his way, that is.

“You turn the lights on, put people in the stands and you want to see how people respond,” Gottfried said. “Especially for some young guys, it’s their first time to get into this environment and also for the older players it’s the first time in this environment with a new system. “Overall, I thought the answer to that question was just okay.

lead guard. During that period, he added another five points to his total, bringing it to 23 for the game. According to Johnson, him and Brown have already had experience playing off of each other, so this game was another opportunity to build on this chemistry. “During the summer time we played on the same Pro-Am team and we have this thing where if he gets it he’ll go and if he gets it I’ll go, so we’re just trying things out right now,” Johnson said. According to Gottfried, the most important aspect of the Red & White game was to get his team to learn from the experience of playing under the lights. “We have to get a lot better,” Gottfried said. “The most important thing today was to turn this into a learning environment for our players today.”
sity’s back,” he said. “He’s not even an alumni of our school and he took it pretty personally. I think it definitely added some fire for us and it was out of character for him so we understood how much it meant to him. “We definitely took it to heart.” Unlike in past games for the Pack, the defense was the story throughout the game. UNC couldn’t get the offense going against a stout front seven for the Pack led by senior middle linebacker Audie Cole and Manning. Bryn Renner was sacked three times in the first half alone and was picked off by redshirt junior safety Earl Wolff at midfield. Cole’s sack was on the first drive of the game for the Heels and set the tone for the Pack defense, as he took Renner down 19 yards behind the line of scrimmage. Cole said the performance by the defense was needed after a tough game against Florida State last weekend. “This was a big one to have,” Cole said. “I think the defense showed what we could do today.” While Cole was the story of the first half, Manning put the clamps on the UNC offense in the second half. Manning had a sack in the third quarter for a loss of 12 yards that forced a punt and kept the ball in State territory. Then, in the waning moments of the game, Manning secured a shutout for the Pack with a tipped pass on a crossing pattern with UNC in the red zone. Manning said he wanted to get the tipped pass for
more than just himself or the shutout, but rather for his team. “It was big for me, but I felt like it was crucial for everybody on my team,” Manning said. “Everybody was fired up and I guess I was just the one that did it.” While Manning and Cole, along with several others, played shut down defense for the Pack, the other story of the game was one that doesn’t get as much attention – field position. Freshman punter Wil Baumann pinned the North Carolina offense behind its own 10-yard line four times, the same amount of times that State started in UNC territory. O’Brien said Baumann’s performance was crucial for the Pack, but that it’s just a continuation of his effectiveness against Florida State. “You have to give [Baumann] a lot of credit,” O’Brien said. “Last week he played in a similar position and I think he did a great job. When you play, it’s not always offense versus defense. Field position certainly is part of it.” When one reporter asked O’Brien about the importance of this game to him personally, the response he gave was one of a coach not looking back, but forward. “I’m already worried about Boston College,” O’Brien said. “That’s just the way I am. I never play this for me. My job is to make sure I do everything to get them prepared for the football game. With that being said, I’m certainly going to enjoy this one tonight.” The Pack will be traveling up to Chestnut Hill, Mass. next Saturday to take on the Eagles at 12:30 p.m. Though State beat Boston College last year, 4410, it has never beaten them at Alumni Stadium since O’Brien left the Eagles for the Pack.
