Students make way for camp Students’ Big iDeas hit the ‘Big D’

By TAYLOR REED Staff Writer

For Brad Namdar, junior triple major in applied physiology and sports management, journalism and CCPA, soccer is just this; it is his passion, his dream and his way of life. Since starting soccer at a young age, Namdar found himself drawn to the sport, and still remains hooked. Namdar has played on both the Player Development League and college soccer teams, coaching youth soccer teams in high school, blogged for The Dallas Morning News with coaching advice for parents, and received a coaching internship with FC Dallas. “I want to be known as the guy who gave opportunities to other people, I want to be the head coach of the national team and win a world cup,” Namdar said. “I will get there one day.” Namdar recognized an opportunity to further his dream when he saw the children from Heart House and Vickery Meadows Community. The children come from a variety of different backgrounds and often cannot afford to go to an expensive soccer camp, receive private coaching or purchase top-quality equipment. Namdar said he wanted to fix this. With the help of SMU peers James Parker and Dean Elazab, Namdar decided to sponsor Dream Big Soccer camp. With over-whelming support from over 20 different student organizations and 250 student volunteers, Namdar’s big dreams have become reality. Dream Big Soccer camp has one goal in mind, to let kids “dream big.” On April 10th at Fair Oaks Park, about three minutes from SMU, Dream Big Soccer camp will host its first ever soccer clinic. Currently, 200 children from Heart House and Vickery Meadows Community will be attending, but with more student volunteers and donations the charity could reach their goal of 300 children. Each child will receive a soccer ball, camp shirt, camp certificate, discount coupons for soccer gear and other

Getting the facts on women’s sexual health By SARAH POTTHARST Associate News Editor

Women’s sexual health is 20 years behind men’s sexual health, according to Dr. Laura Berman, the keynote speaker at the 45th Annual Women’s Symposium on March 3. Berman is an assistant clinical professor of psychiatry and obstetrics/ gynecology at the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University.

She has been working as a sex educator and therapist for 20 years, and has written numerous books on women’s sexual health. Only with recent medical inventions, such as Viagra, has there been a need to explore women’s sexual health, Berman said. One example of a misunderstanding in women’s sexual health is that few people understand the difference between the vulva and vagina.

She recalled a memory of her son as a toddler when he had asked her if she had a penis. “No, I have a vulva,” Berman replied. “I’m sorry you don’t have a penis,” her son said. Berman also says that there is a lack of comprehension in the major differences between men and women’s

Chatroulette: Do you feel lucky? By DEREK HUBBARD Contributing Writer

Chatroulette is a new Internet experience that is sweeping the world and college campuses. The Web site allows users to video chat with random strangers from all over the world. Users have the ability to hit “next” at any moment during the chat. Created by a 17year-old Russian named Andrey Ternovskiy, Chatroulette is a relatively new, but gaining momentum. Students can be seen all around campus huddled by their laptops experiencing Chatroulette. Cries of “next” can be heard from these students. Biology and Spanish double major Ronnie Barakat does not visit the site too often, but has fun when he does.

“I would say I use it once every two weeks,” Barakat said. “I only use it in groups though and we always ended up having a good time.” Celebrities are also chiming in on this new phenomenon. Ashton Kutcher, Jessica Alba and Chris Brown have been reported as users of the site. “I want to chat with Justin Beiber,” sophomore Alex Roach said. “I think it would be really cool to chat with him.” However, not everyone is singing Chatroulette’s praises. Sociology major Emma Killingsworth does not understand all the hype. “I just heard about it a few days ago, and it seems creepy,” Killingsworth said. “Everything is a phase, so it won’t be popular

What would you do if your university handed you five grand to go out and fix your community? For the third year,SMU is giving up to $5,000 to 10 undergraduate students strictly for research. The motive behind this grant is that students will find an area at SMU or in Dallas that needs improvement and they will then come up with “big solutions that improve the quality of life,” according to SMU’s Big iDeas Web site. The Big iDeas program is a selective process. To receive the grant, students must team up with at least one fellow classmate and submit a written proposal to be reviewed by a committee. Paul W. Ludden, SMU provost and vice president for academic affairs, is in charge of the program. SMU sophomore Matt Gayer has Ludden to thank for his participation in Big iDeas. “He [Ludden] had mentioned it at another event on campus and I investigated more,” Gayer said. “The project is truly one of the best SMU offers, and the opportunities are endless for students and their creativity.”. Gayer’s team focuses on health literacy. “The goal of the project is improve communication between medical professionals and patients in the DFW Metroplex,” Gayer said. “Our project started as a

small research project, and now has grown into a comprehensive 501c(3) nonprofit organization with 17 staff [members].” Grayson Walker, SMU junior, is focusing his research on SMU’s current smoking policy.He and his team believe that it is out-dated. “It’s been over 10 years since anyone looked at the campus smoking policy,” Walker said. Walker heard about Big iDeas from Dr. White and Dr. Turner, both in SMU administration, who recommended that he apply. Walker spent almost two years doing research before his project even began. “Time requirement depends on the type of the project,” Walker said. “Also, the time requirement varies according to your passion for your project.” Gayer said he spends anywhere from 20-30 hours a week working on the project. However, that is much more time than most projects require. “I think as long as you have a good plan and a good team, it is perfectly manageable to handle a Big iDeas project along with studies, social life, etc.,” Gayer said. “The best part of the Big iDeas program is that it allows students to make an impact in their community and gain real world experience. “The learning in the classroom is important, but the Big iDeas program allows for students to gain professional experience on a level not available to the average college student,” he said.

If full-time faculty members do not approve the upcoming General Education Curriculum proposal, committee members will have to go back to the drawing board according to SMU officials at the Faculty Senate meeting. Matthew Wilson, professor of political science, brought up the topic by asking, “If the faculty voted against this curriculum what would happen?” Paul Ludden, SMU provost and vice president for academic affairs, said: “That would certainly take things off track. We would have to start all over.” The discussion was the opening of yesterdays Faculty Senate meeting, which took place at Karcher Auditorium in Storey Hall at 3:10 p.m. Senators asked for further clarification about how many people are needed to pass the measure. Fred Olness, president of the Faculty Senate, said that a majority was needed. The university-wide forum is slated for 3:30 p.m. on March 17 in the Hughes-Trigg Theater, with electronic voting to take place on March 18 and 19. Stacey Paddock, executive

director of Alumni Giving and Relations, updated the senators about Inside SMU, a program created to bring alumni back to the SMU campus. She said the daylong event on April 9 includes an academic update presented by deans of different colleges, interesting discussions and lectures on a variety of topics and a cookout on the Cox Quad hosted by the Faculty Senate. Paddock said alumni would have the choice on which academic sessions they want to attend. “Hopefully this will be an annual event. We have 50,000 alumni out there and they always tell us they want to become more involved with campus,” Olness said. He urged the senators to inform others to become involved with the event, so at least 40 percent of each department would be represented. After Paddock spoke, Susan Kress, director of SMU International Center addressed the room about the SMUAbroad program. Kress said SMU-Abroad manages a lot more than just the study abroad experience. She said there are “three main categories of programs—semester programs, that’s where the most growth is, summer or J-term led by your colleagues and courses on campus with study abroad components.” Kress said she is in a process with

Heirloom records the life of a 19th-century doctor By PATRICIA BENOIT Temple Daily Telegram

TEMPLE, Texas (AP) — Back in the 1800s, the sum total of medical technology was loaded in leather saddlebags and slung over the rump of a horse. The physician’s daybook of patients, their conditions and charges were his personal credit rating. Brothers Jim and Pat Ham, both of Temple, still have their grandfather’s daybook and medical saddlebags, circa 1880s and chock-a-block with corktopped glass vials of who-knows-what. They also still have his vest-pocket pharmacy, another flapped leather wallet with more glass vials loaded with mysterious substances. Their grandfather, Jeremiah “Jerry” Hood Stephens, MD., was among the earliest medical practitioners in the county. Although Stephens died before the brothers were born, family stories indicate that Stephens was “a real character,” Pat Ham said. The brothers Ham also have Stephens’ daybooks and pharmacy lists from the 1890s through the early 1900s. Entries show that he made daily house calls by buggy and horseback between Oenaville, Troy and “in town,” meaning Temple, as well as Salado and Falls County. He also treated white and African-American patients alike. The daybooks give insights into their grandfather’s quirks and temperament as well as his “cures.” Frequently, a farmer’s kitchen became a surgical suite; a bedroom became a

hospital. Surgery, if attempted at all, was performed under the soft glow of kerosene lamps. The pharmacopeia in front of the daybook lists his standard remedies. Mercury, calomel, glycerin and carbolic acid were frequently used in varying amount to cure everything from diphtheria to whooping cough to venereal diseases. Another entry says, “To produce sleep when nervous — chloral hydrate, syrup of orange and peppermint water.” To remedy coughs, he frequently prescribed a mixture of “cannabis indicus” (marijuana) and chloroform.

of patients’ willingness to pay. His daybooks also reveal the financial travails of a country doctor. Some house calls were frequently overnight vigils. Charges ranged from $1.50 to $10, depending on the diagnosis and length of his visit. Some accounts were cleared with inkind payments. A new father covered his debt when he “hauled three loads,” presumably crops on Stephens’ land. Another patient “paid with shoats” (piglets), and still another grateful family “paid in beef.” At other times, Stephens wrote off charges when the patient died. In the back are patient lists, mostly

of who paid and who didn’t. On March 4, 1894, he called the Temple town marshal in to force a patient to pay for delivering a baby. One entry for Aug. 13, 1894, shows he made a house call in the middle of the night to attend a man’s wife. The charge: $2.50. Below that, Stephens wrote, “d--s-of b- ought to be in the penitentiary

for he will steal.” Stephens described another deadbeat as “d----d miserable worthless bum, tried robbing for a living.” Equally blunt was his assessment in 1905: “d----ed dirty ass, gone to hell, I hope.” He frequently marked other delinquent accounts with “son of B.” The medical saddlebag is rare for

its completeness. A sturdy leather strap connects the twin saddlebags so they can hang over a horse’s saddle. This was his traveling medical kit, complete with cork-topped glass vials of medicaments. The vials and their contents are still there. The weathered flaps appear to have endured the most of horse’s rump.

Ryan Sheckler rolls into Dallas to judge D-Town Throwdown



Nicole Richie comes to Dallas


Associate A&E Editor

On the stairs in front of the American Airlines Center, skateboarders perform heelflips, ollies, backside bigspins and other tricks, transforming the entrance to the arena into a hip skateboard park. While skateboarding is usually forbidden in places such as AT&T Plaza, Tuesday Night is a different story as Lil Wayne’s song “Bedrock” emanates from the DJ booth, setting the tone of the two-hour event. A crowd of about 300 watches as the contestants use the six stairs and stair rail to perform outrageous stunts that even those unfamiliar with the skateboard lingo cannot help but cheer for. With over an hour to impress the judges, the skateboarders try to land the perfect stunt in hopes of being named the best skateboarder in North Dallas. On Tuesday night, Action Park Alliance held the 2nd annual D-Town Throwdown in search for the most talented skateboarder in North Texas. The contest was held before the Dallas Stars vs. Los Angeles Kings game at American Airlines Center, with trials from 6-7 p.m. and finals beginning at 7:15. Red Bull sponsored the event, handing out free drinks and supplying a pimped out party bus for VIP spectators. Blending in with the electronic and hip-hop jams being spun by the DJ were the “ooo’s,” “ah’s” and “oh’s” from spectators as the competitors either landed a cool trick or took a serious dive onto the concrete ground. The most anticipated part of the event was the guest appearance of pro-skater, Ryan Sheckler. Sheckler is sponsored by Red Bull and flew to Dallas to help out with the event. The two-time gold medalist of the X Games judged the skaters, looking for who could do the most moves in the allotted time as well as who was not afraid to try difficult stunts.

LAURA COOK/The Daily Campus

Skateboarders participate in the 2nd annual D-Town Throwdown.

“At the end of the day it’s all about the hardest trick you can pull out,” Sheckler said. Most of the contestants were in their early 20s and had competed in last year’s event. Shawn Greene, a 22year-old from Dallas, took home first place in 2009’s D-Town Throwdown, and placed 4th this year. “My favorite move is a backside 360˚, that’s how I usually try to impress the judges,” Greene said. The backside 360˚ was a popular move Tuesday night, as skaters waited patiently for their turn to run and jump onto the stair rail and ignite cheers and applause from the fired up crowd. Sheckler says the laid back nature of the event and constant skateboarding keeps spectators pumped up. “A contest like this is easy to watch because it’s a lot of action, it’s a lot of

fun, so I’m always into it,” Sheckler said. The eight skaters held nothing back during the finals, as skateboards slid down the rail, spun in the air and flawlessly landed back on the ground. After 30 minutes of battling it out, David Sauceda took home the title this year with his last move of the night, the “ghetto bird,” known in the skateboarding world as a hardflip backside 180˚. At the end of the event, fans and constestants alike lined up to get autographs and pictures with the guest of honor, Sheckler. Sheckler, who gained popularity with his 2002 MTV reality show, Life of Ryan, was in town for only a day to judge the event. Since then, Sheckler has been concentrating on his new clothing line, RS, available at JC Penny.

Last year’s “Most Talented Skateboader” is Shawn Greene.

Though he is undecided of whether he will compete in this year’s X Games or Blue Cup, Sheckler does know for him it is all about the skateboarding. “I just want to skate. I have this whole season to straight up just skateboard,” Sheckler said.

Tonight Neiman Marcus at NorthPark Center is welcoming Nicole Richie, and the launch of her newest collection, Winter Kate. The event will be held at 6:30 p.m. on the second floor of the store’s new contemporary boutique, CUSP. The title of Richie’s new line, Winter Kate, comes from the two middle names of her daughter, Harlow. The 37-piece collection includes vintage-inspired tops, slips and jackets, all of which embody the celebrity’s signature boho style.

The line has arrived just in time for spring, and even has pieces that are a steal at $35. Richie will be celebrating her new line, snapping pictures and signing autographs for fashion followers in Dallas. Not to mention, she will be helping Neiman Marcus show off their newest endeavor, CUSP at NorthPark. CUSP, which has just opened in March 2010, is located inside Neiman’s. It is a specialty shop that personifies the style and luxury of the department store, while focusing on the latest and greatest trends.

About a week ago, I went to the theater. No, not the movie theater, a theatre-theater. That’s theatre with an “r-e,” not the other way around. I’m referring to stage plays and acting on stage and sets for the stage and lighting for the Trey Treviño stage and all of that kind of thing. You know, the theatre. I was watching this performance and I was struck by all the things that happened on the stage at the same time. Specifically, I was struck by all the control that I had over my viewing experience: the power to choose, from all the performers and all the actions on stage, what to focus on. Of course, I had been aware of this facet of the theatre before now intellectually, but it hadn’t really hit me until that night. It was interesting to me, mostly because of how unaccustomed I was to it. I come from the discipline of film, and in film, everything that you see on the screen is shot by a motion picture camera. In any given film, there are quite a number of shots taken of any character or action, from various distances and angles (which we refer to as “standard coverage”). There are so many shots, in fact, that it would be rather

impossible to put all of them in the final product, and so we filmmakers even had to come up with a special position, the editor, just to deal with all of the decisions: decisions of which shots to use and how to put them together into something that makes sense and means something. But that really is the key word, “decision.” Another good word is “choice.” The editor has to decide—has to choose—what to do to present the story in the best manner possible. It is this aspect that makes film so different from theatre, or any other art form for that matter. Granted, all the arts have editing in the more conventional sense of the word: omitting passages in a manuscript that weigh down the story or obscure the meaning, trimming out parts in a musical composition for similar reasons, even removing the parts of a play that the director has decided have no place in his new adaptation for whatever reason. Of course, film editing does the same thing, but only after there is something to take away from, which can only be done after those shots have been assembled. The editor must build before he can take away. So in film, there is so much more to the editing process than just cutting out the bad bits. That’s what makes it the art of editing. But there is no such process in theatre. The responsibility is left to the viewer of what to look at, what to focus on.


I meditated upon this as I watched that play, but then realized that regardless, a choice was still being made; the responsibility of it had just been shifted from one person to another: the audience. So the only difference between theatre and film, perhaps, is who makes the decision, who chooses what is important enough to merit attention. But this small difference carries with it such far-reaching consequences as to render these two art forms completely alien to each other. Honestly, I equate film more to painting or other visual arts than to the theatre. There is the finished product on the “canvas” for one to take from it what one will. And even then, it’s not quite the same thing, as even a painting can have various parts that people can either choose to look at or choose to ignore. And that is what makes each individual art form so necessary, as each is distinct enough to have its own appeal. There is something for everyone out there; you just have to know what you want.

ot all press is good press. On Feb. 25, Texas A&M UniversityCommerce’s student paper, The East Texan, ran a front-page story about the arrest of two of the school’s football players in a drug bust. Early that morning, other members of the team went around campus and stole every issue of the paper from campus newsstands. When confronted with the evidence of the team’s Nathaniel French misconduct, including a video of several players in the act, football coach Guy Morriss stood with the team, saying, “I’m proud of my players for doing that.” Needless to say, that wasn’t the response the school was looking for. For one thing, the players’ actions were illegal. The East Texan, like The Daily Campus, offers one free copy of every issue to its readers but charges an additional 25 cents for extra copies (The Daily Campus charges 50 cents). Given that the team stole every copy on campus, they weren’t just taking small change. More importantly, what they did was just plain wrong. It’s a newspaper’s job to report the news, and sometimes that’s going to include scrutiny some would rather avoid. But if people were allowed to block stories they didn’t like, Richard Nixon would have gone down in history as a popular two-term president, no one would have ever heard of Abu Ghraib and veterans at Walter Reed would never have gotten the treatment they deserve. The free exercise of the press may be the most valuable of American rights. The university should punish the perpetrators of the newspaper theft and make it clear that it stands by the right of its students to get information about their school. Coach Morriss should help lead the investigation and stand by whatever decision the university makes.

Southern manners too often left behind It’s time to bring back door-opening gentlemen and firm handshakes COLUMNIST


hen we think of the South, we think of cowboys, the word “y’all,” and good ole Southern manners. For example, men open doors for ladies and let them cut in line, and Samantha Verrill children are taught to say, “Yes ma’am” or, “Yes COLUMNIST sir” instead of, “Yeah” to adults. Children are taught to keep their football allegiances true and their roots grounded; where they come from is what makes them who they are. This is something that Samantha Cangelosi has been a part of the Southern way of life for as long as we can remember. Nowadays, we’ve seen a gradual decline in manners and etiquette, and by golly we think that needs some fixin’! Ironically, technology can make people less connected to one another because they are so focused on sending out that one last text message instead of noticing the people around them. The huge amount of work and stress that can accumulate over the week can also put one in a grumpy, unfriendly mood, making a simple, kind action too much of an effort. This needs to change--or rather, go back to the way it used to be. People hurry past others in a race against time, and friendliness between strangers has become a thing of the past. A crude gesture has replaced the kind wave at a stop sign. Banter between strangers is more than uncomfortable now. When did this happen? Being raised in Southern homes, we both are used to striking up a conversation almost anywhere. Now, awkward silences fill the void. Y’all should see some of the strange looks we get when we try and open our mouths to greet someone we do not know. Very rarely do we see smiles on the faces of

passersby. Very rarely do we see a man give up his seat for a woman who is standing. Now, we are not saying that every man should jump up out of his seat and offer a lady a chance to sit her tired tookus, but if you are able to stand, stand up. Especially if the lady is pregnant! Never make a pregnant lady stand on her swollen ankles longer than she has to. You laugh but we have seen this on numerous occasions. How about holding doors open for one another? On numerous occasions, we have both been walking into a building and have almost walked straight into the door because we thought the person in front of us was holding it open. Embarrassing for both parties, injurious for one. We both hold doors open for people: adults, kids, and elderly folks. It is just the polite thing to do. Manners used to be important. One of us even spent several years in white glove etiquette courses. How many of y’all even know which way to set the table? Or which fork to use first, or how not to pull your cell phone out and place it on the table at dinner. Do any of you actually know the distinction between dinner and supper? We are sure most Southern fathers and mothers anxiously await the day that their daughter’s boyfriend will ask permission to marry their “little girl.” That’s on the decline too. Nowadays girls go home with a surprise ring on their hands. So not cool. For you Northerners who are shaking your heads in disbelief, jump on the bandwagon. Manners are not overrated; they are important. Good manners are something that the ole Southern states pride themselves on. So where has it gone? We refuse to change our ways. Southern by the grace of God, right? Samantha Cangelosi is a sophomore journalism major and Samantha Verrill is a junior journalism major. They can be reached for comment at and, respectively.


hen tragedy hits, American evangelicals are quick to respond. They ignite and react immediately, feeling called to love unconditionally and serve a higher purpose. After the recent earthquake Mallory McCall in Haiti, Americans wanted to help, but some felt called to do more than write a check or send survival kits. They wanted to adopt Haitian children. Can you blame them? They see a 30 second commercial featuring grief-stricken children and want to change things. Is this bad? No. It’s human nature, especially for evangelicals, to want to save people from danger and loneliness—both spiritually and physically. How can they do this? Some feel adoption is the answer—give the children what they need by bringing them here. But is it really that simple? These people’s intentions may be pure, but this quick reaction is not the trick to restoring Haiti. In an interview with Christianity Today, Michele Bond, the State Department’s deputy assistant secretary for Overseas Citizens Services, made a good point: right now Americans should not be asking how to adopt Haitian children, but instead how to help them find Haitian families. Although the Haitian government is not accepting new adoption applications, it is working with the U.S. State Department to expedite the adoptions that were in process before the earthquake. There are ways to help give Haitian orphans families without adopting them. Evangelicals who are moved to make a difference should give financial support or volunteer with organizations like the International Committee of the Red Cross that are dedicated to search and rescue and reconnecting families. If Americans were to scoop up all the Haitian orphans and bring them back to America, they would be taking more than just children from the broken country. They would be taking away a chunk of Haiti’s identity--possibly the one thing that’s still intact. Some people want to remove the orphans from horrible situations. This seems like a quick fix. Instead, the efforts to change things should be redirected to remove the horrible conditions present in Haiti, not the people. Mothers lost their babies in the earthquake, husbands lost their wives and children lost their parents. While households may be incomplete, the nation is not. The one thing the Haitians have left is each other. Those who survived are the future of the country. Don’t forget: Haiti is a family in itself, and generous, family-centered Americans should help build that family, not their own.

HEALTH: Differences between men, women stem from hunter, gatherer days CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

sexuality. One of these differences is that men don’t have the same “mechanism” as women that allows for an emotional connection with sex. This difference dates back to the days when we were hunters and gatherers, said Berman. Women are programmed to multitask, as it was their job to be a gatherer. Men, on the other hand, were hunters and were programmed to be focused in their chores. This means that women are generally more distracted in the sack than men because their minds are constantly running, and so an emotional connection results. Berman also gave the women in the audience some advice about sex. “Don’t have sex with someone you don’t want to fall in love with,” she

Dr. Laura Berman Assistant clinical professor of psychiatry and obstetrics/gynecology, Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University Sexual health columnist, radio and TV personality Ph.D. in Health Education and Therapy and Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work, New York University said. “Like it or not, if you have good sex, you’re going to be upset that he doesn’t call the next day, even though yesterday you would never want to

hear from him again.” Another misunderstanding in women’s sexual health today has to do with the tug-of-war of power in relationships. Berman said there is a difference between power and control. Women seldom realize that they can have plenty of power in a relationship, while still handing over some control to their partner. “If you don’t let him have some power,” Berman said. “He will shut down.” Karen Click, director of the Womens Center said having a space for women to have open communication is important and sexual health is the last frontier when women’s health is discussed.

for long.” Critics disapprove of the lack of censorship on the site. Users are free to broadcast any video of themselves. Many users of the site have noted that some people show objectionable material. Sophomore Mason Galloway, who only uses Chatroulette to “have fun” or “meet friends” has seen questionable material.

“I’ve seen some videos that were very adult themed,” Galloway said. “I can’t hit the next button fast enough.” Bakarat and Killingsworth both agree that there should be some censorship as to what can be broadcast. Some students view the site as an educational experience. Spanish major Rachel Brown has used Chatroulette to brush up on her Spanish. “I was able to speak Spanish with a

Chilean,” she said. Though Brown is “down to chat,” she is somewhat skeptical of the site. “I question the motives behind people using Chatroulette,” Brown said. No matter how one uses Chatroulette, it is an experience that is like no other. Only time will tell if the Web site cements itself in the technology history books.

sponsor promotions and prizes, not to mention a day that they will never forget. Dream Big Soccer’s philosophy is that it is critical for college students to break the status quo by making their mark on society. For this reason Dream Big Soccer is run and organized exclusively by students who wish to give back to their community. “It’s a chance to show people that

someone cares; being that smile that brightens their day.” With game day around the corner, Dream Big Soccer camp is preparing for anything and everything. It still needs help with donations and finding people who are willing to commit one day out of their weekend to make an impact on the children. “Anything will help from donating a dollar to a million dollars. Anything and anyone can and will help.” The organization recently published

a Facebook group to help spread the word to students. Since its publishing date, it has gained over 150 different members.

White says Perry focused on partisan politics By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

HOUSTON (AP) — Democratic gubernatorial nominee Bill White took aim Wednesday at his GOP opponent, Gov. Rick Perry, saying the state’s top politician is more interested in promoting “partisan rhetoric” and “angry headlines” than in improving the lives of Texans. But a Perry campaign spokesman said the governor has worked to create jobs and improve the quality of life for all Texans, in contrast to White, who is “out of touch with mainstream Texas values.” Perry used the rising wave of antiWashington ire to help him easily beat Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison in Tuesday’s Republican primary. White, a former Houston mayor who’s portraying himself as a calm consensus-builder,

easily defeated six opponents to win the Democratic party’s nomination. They will face off in November’s general election. White said he was mindful Perry could also focus the anti-Washington sentiment on him during the campaign but stressed that the governor would only be doing that as a way to divert attention from his own poor record in leading the state. White, during a news conference in Houston, said Texas is facing a multitude of problems, including: skyrocketing college tuition and insurance and utilities rates, rising school property and local property taxes, high dropout rates and low test scores. Perry did not have any scheduled public appearances Wednesday. But

Mark Miner, a spokesman for Perry’s campaign, called White a “liberal Democrat” who is supportive of health care and energy reform in Congress that will cost Texans money and jobs. White said during his time as Houston mayor he worked closely with both the Bush and Obama administrations but also wasn’t afraid to criticize them. Already the state’s longest-serving governor, Perry is seeking a third, full four-year term. Democrats haven’t won a statewide office since 1994, when George W. Bush was elected governor and the Republicans started their Texas takeover. White acknowledged he has an uphill battle in defeating Perry. “It is sort of a David versus Goliath,” White said. “There’s no doubt that I start out an underdog.”

FACULTY: Senate discusses study abroad CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

academic chairs of going over how study abroad is integrated into the campus curriculum. “How academic departments use the student experience overseas really needs to be a decision made by faculty,” Kress said. “I am looking for guidance.” The update by Kress was followed by a resolution drawn by the academic policy committee to replace the term residency requirement with the SMU credit requirement. Presenters Beth Newman and Chris Buchanan, professor of biology, discussed how the committee created the resolution. Newman, a professor of English, said that students already get credit for classes not taken at SMU. She said this will allow a broader and more diverse student population to become involved in different programs at SMU. She said the plan was based on an Emory Uinversity plan. “It is harder for students who have not started here as a first year to

participate in a study abroad program,” she said. “We are just bringing the language up to date.” The resolution passed unanimously. A resolution brought forward by accounting professor Michael van Breda, about the continued “vital role of the Senate-appointed Information Technology Committee in monitoring the university-wide information technology committees” also passed unanimously. Chris Casey, vice president for business and finance gave the senators an overview of the budget planning process. She said professional services, benefits, financial aid, athletics and departmental budget variances resulted in SMU using close to $10 million in reserves to balance the budget for the fiscal year of 2009. She said for the fiscal year of 2010 fall undergraduate enrollment came in $1 million under budget. They had planned for 1,375 and not the 1,329 accepted. Casey also said low returns on

operating cash and the endowment market value appear to have stabilized. She also said that current budget challenges include catastrophic claims and medical prescription inflation. She then laid out total compensation, which included funding increases for promotion and tenure, as well as discussing athletics effect on the operating budget of the university, a topic which concerned many Senators. “I’m fortunate to have a very talented group of senators this year both with the SMU leadership and faculty leadership. We have gotten SMU through some tough times,” Olness said. “We are in a good position, especially given the economic climate, it helps to have good leaders,” he said. “She [Casey] has put us in a conservative position we want to make sure we can provide the programs and the courses and not cut into the core of SMU,” Olness said. “She and Turner have been looking out for SMU.”

SMU weathers Golden Hurricane for fourth win

Mustangs swept away by Tulsa

Mustangs claim first round bye in C-USA tournament By DORI SHOCKLEY Staff Writer


SMU forward Haley Day drives to the basket during Wednesday night’s game against Tulsa. SMU won the game 71-52

The SMU women’s basketball team gave Tulsa a short lived false security last night when allowing the Golden Hurricane to obtain an early 6-0 lead in the their last regular season game at Moody Coliseum. The Mustangs then took control on the court and lead by three with over 16 minutes left in the first half. The rest of the half SMU maintained their lead, leading by 14 points at the most. The Mustangs finished 19 points ahead of the Golden Hurricane. The Mustangs lead the way into the locker room with a score of 38, 26. As predicated by SMU head coach Rhonda Rompola, the women relied heavily on the use of threepoint shots. The successful use of these outside shots allowed for SMU to earn and keep the lead during pivotal points in the game. SMU completed five three-point shots in the first half alone out of the eleven shots taken. Tulsa completed three and attempted eight. SMU and Tulsa last met on Golden Hurricane’s home court in Tulsa, Okla. SMU fell short by just three points, 57-54. Prior to last night’s game, Tulsa had a Conference USA record of 6-9 and SMU had a record of 9-6. “Our offense was not sync at

Tulsa,” Rompola, speaking about February’s game, said. “They [Tulsa] played a lot of man, which allowed BG [Brittany Gilliam] to go in and create more.” Tulsa started the second half off with some pep and briefly dropped the Mustang lead to eight. SMU soon found their stride once again and was up by 15 with 15 minutes left in the game. SMU continued the lead all the way to the buzzer with a final score of 71-52. This season SMU has had consistency from the same players, Brittany Gilliam leading the team with 19 points and Haley Day, in second, with 11 points. Heidi Brandenburg, who had only averaged about two points a game this season and had only played 201 minutes as of Feb. 27, not only started but also added 9 to the Mustang score. Jillian Samuels added 11 last night and Alisha Filmore added 12. “That just shows what we have done to help this program out all in all, we’re just winners. We all like to win,” said Gilliam, at the conclusion of Senior Night. This is the 82 win for the senior class. SMU has earned a bye for the first round of post season, at this time; it is not determined who they will play first. The C-USA tournament will take place in Tulsa, Okla. and runs from March 8 -12.


Contributing Writer

The SMU men’s basketball team will have to wait another year to try again to end their regular season woes against Tulsa. The Mustangs’ losing streak to the Golden Hurricane grew to 10 games in a 58-55 defeat last night after Derek Williams’ game-tying three bounced hard off the backboard with 0.2 seconds remaining. After Ben Uzoh’s open threepointer with 2:19 remaining gave Tulsa (21-9, 10-5) a nine-point lead at 56-47, the Hurricane looked poised to cruise to an easy victory before SMU (14-15, 7-8) rolled off a quick 8-0 run that included two Mouhammad Faye three-point baskets. The Mustangs had an opportunity to take the lead with 30 seconds left after TU center Jerome Jordan missed the first free throw in a 1and-1 situation. However, Williams wasn’t able to finish a layup over the seven-foot-tall Jordan. Williams led the Mustangs with 15 points and four assists and was helped very little by his teammates in the first 29 minutes of the game. The dynamic changed, however, when with 11 minutes left, Williams badly turned his ankle while driving on Tulsa’s Steven Idlet. He only sat out for a minute and a half but was



Mustangs face tough test in Longhorns over weekend By STEPHEN LU Sports Editor

The No. 22 SMU women’s tennis team (12-1) added two more victories to their win total last weekend but still dropped a place in national rankings. They will get a chance to climb back up when they pay a visit to No. 33 University of Texas (3-3) this weekend. After suffering their only loss of the season to Florida International back in late January, the Mustangs have been tearing through their opponents. They are currently on an 8-match winning streak, which includes victories over TCU and Conference USA rival Tulsa. The Longhorns are on a two-match winning streak of their own, including a convincing 7-0 win over Fresno State last weekend. Their other match of the weekend, against Arizona State, was cancelled due to weather.

Sophomores Marta Lesniak and Aleksandra Malyarchikova lead SMU. Both have won all 11 matches they have played in singles and are 5-2 when playing as a duo in doubles. However, the team has received a lot of help from their freshmen: Edyta Cieplucha, Shahzoda Hatamova and Katerina Vankova. Cieplucha and Vankova are perfect in singles play, with Cieplucha’s record at 8-0 and Vankova at 2-0. Hatamova has been just as impressive, winning nine of her 10 matches. The Mustangs will have to be on their guard though, as they will be facing several high-ranking players against the Longhorns. Lesniak will most likely be playing Aeriel Ellis, ranked No. 17 in the nation, while Malyarchikova will take on No. 71 Vanja Corovic. The match will take place at noon March 6 at UT’s Penick-Allison Tennis Center.

noticeably hampered by the hurt ankle for the rest of the game, and ended up only connecting on seven of his 21 field goal attempts. The offense was sustained by Faye and Robert Nyakundi, who both scored 13 points and hit 3-threes a piece in the second half. Faye also added eight rebounds while Papa Dia, following a career-high 31 points and 12 rebounds in Saturday’s game against Houston, was kept quiet thanks to Jordan’s immense presence and early foul trouble. He finished with seven points, six rebounds and six turnovers. It was TU’s senior night, and stars Uzoh and Jordan, along with fellow senior Bishop Wheatley, did not disappoint in their final home game. Uzoh finished with 20 points, and was the only consistent source of offense for the Golden Hurricane throughout the night. Despite being held scoreless for the first 18 minutes of the game, Jordan finished with 12 points, 13 rebounds and three blocks. The two teams were tied at 24 after a first half that saw poor shooting for both teams and a total of 22 fouls called. SMU and Tulsa both struggled at the FT line, shooting 60 and 58.8 percent respectively. The loss dropped SMU into a threeway tie for No. 6 place in Conference USA with only one conference game remaining.

Baradach picks up big win over No. 7 Kutrovsky in loss to UT By BRITTANY LEVINE Associate Sports Editor

The SMU men’s tennis team lost to the No. 4 ranked Texas Longhorns, 6-1, this past Tuesday. The match took place at UT’s Penick-Allison Tennis Center. Texas, which now has a record of 12-1, swept SMU in the doubles matches before turning right around and taking five of six singles matches. The Mustangs’ lone win came from junior Artem Baradach, who arguably won the most important match of his career at SMU. Baradach, in the No. 1 singles position, defeated Texas senior Dimitar Kutrovsky (6-0, 6-1). Kutrovsky is ranked as the No. 7 singles player in the ITA rankings. Baradach entered the match at No. 99 in singles play.

Head coach Carl Neufeld said to, “It’s really exciting to see Artem’s progression. This win will propel him into the national spotlight after beating one of the best players in the nation on their home court.” Neufeld was optimistic about how his team played. In particular, he enjoyed freshman Tobias Flood’s singles match against the Longhorns’ Jean Anderson. Flood lost the match 7-5, 7-5, but played well. “SMU played a good match and fought us really hard,” Texas head coach Michael Center said. “I give SMU a lot of credit, because they played a very good match.” The Mustangs now have a record of 6-6. Coming up, SMU will compete in a Conference USA match against Memphis at home on Friday, March 5 at 2 p.m. in the Turpin Tennis Center.
