SMU organizations and clubs donated volunteer hours to the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB). The relationship between SMU and the NTFB is part of SMU’s effort to immerse students in the community.

Students aid local food bank SAMANTHA PELTIER Contributing Writer speltier@smu.edu Students, faculty, staff and alumni often give their voices, time, food and funds to the Dallas community. SMU organizations and clubs have lent a helping hand at the North Texas Food Bank [NTFB] for a while now. “We were noticing so many natural, organic ties between SMU and NTFB that it seemed only fitting to formalize this relationship that was already such a huge support to us,” Julie Boehm, community affairs manager for the North Texas Food Bank, said. To mark its centennial year, SMU has partnered with the North Texas Food Bank, in a program called “Stampede Against Hunger.” This program was made to create an opportunity to encourage more joint projects between the two organizations. SMU Director of Media Marketing Kim Cobb said SMU designed the partnership

to spotlight the different ways that the university could help the NTFB reduce hunger in North Texas. “Community service is vital to the life of any university, but SMU students, in particular, have great opportunities to support their classroom experiences with volunteering opportunities,” Cobb said. The North Texas Food Bank relies on supporters to accomplish its mission to increase the hunger awareness in North Texas and increase community involvement in the fight. “Partnering with the SMU community and brand is powerful. This is an innovative partnership model which we don’t think exists anywhere in the U.S.— a major food bank aligned with a major university,” Boehm said. The NTFB has annual events with Highland Park High School, Coppell ISD and Dallas Baptist University, but this is the first formalized partnership the NTFB has with

a local university. “The “Stampede” partnership will not only bring more supporters to the food bank,” Boehm said, “but will also communicate to existing partners how much their support means to the NTFB.” SMU has many different opportunities to help the food bank throughout the year, Cobb said. Through Engaged Learning, students can participate in undergraduate research, service projects, internships and creative activities by working with the food bank. Many previous Engaged Learning projects have focused on the city of Dallas and its social and economic problems. SMU Basketball kicked off this partnership by volunteering at a 30-hour Sort-A-Thon on Sept. 6. Junior post Mallory Singleton, who participated in the drive with her teammates, sorted and stocked almost 6,000 pounds of food. She hopes more SMU students get to volunteer at the

food bank because it was such a great experience. Part of SMU’s Second Century campaign is focused on immersing students in the community. Different fellowships and awards on campus, like the Academic Community Engagement fellowship, were designed to help community immersion. Students who have already started volunteering with the NTFB enjoyed the experience. “It’s a really cool place to volunteer at because it is a great organization,” Singleton said. Senior guard London Giles enjoyed the event because he was able to help those less fortunate while spending time around his teammates. Giles says he has wanted to help the less fortunate since he was a kid. “SMU is known for a lot of things, and I’m glad giving back to the community is one of them,” Giles said. SMU community members are invited to participate in Service Day at the North Texas Food Bank on Nov. 4.

A Dallas County grand jury indicted an SMU junior Donald Cuba of La Grange Park, Ill., on Sept. 4 for the Feb. 10, 2012, sexual assault of a fellow SMU student in an on-campus residence hall, according to documents provided to The Daily Campus. Cuba, a 20-year-old political science major, was booked into Dallas County Jail on Sept. 10 and was released the same day on a $15,000 bond, according to court documents. SMU police issued a crime alert on Feb. 14 stating that a student had reported on Feb. 13 that she was sexually assaulted by a student acquaintance in an SMU residence hall located at 6020 Hillcrest Ave. The address listed in the crime alert is Smith Hall. The crime alert went on to state the alleged assault occurred during the early morning hours of Feb. 10. A story published Friday by The Fort Worth Weekly reported Cuba was initially found guilty by an SMU judicial review panel after the alleged

incident. According to the FW Weekly, Cuba appealed the decision of the initial panel and was found not guilty on appeal. According to the FW Weekly, the next step in the case was the Sept. 4 indictment by the Dallas County grand jury. The FW Weekly also reported it had attempted to contact SMU Police Chief Richard Shafer and Assistant Dean of Student Life Evelyn Ashley, who oversees the judicial panels. Both were unavailable for comment, according to Kent Best, director of SMU News and Communications. Best was contacted Friday by The Daily Campus for comment and requested additional time to respond.

Marriott donation set to rejuvenate, catalyze Meadows JENNIFER BUNTZ Contributing Writer jbuntz@smu.edu The Meadows School of the Arts created the Marriott Family Endowed Professor Fund after a gift from John W. Marriott III and his wife Angela C. Marriott in August. Instead of personally specifying which of the 10 academic divisions to donate the money to, the family decided to give the school that freedom. This way, the money can be directed wherever it seems most fit. John Willard Marriott Jr. and his wife Donna Garff Marriott were also a part of the donation. It has not yet been determined what the money will be used for, but some Meadows students from different majors have given their opinions on where they think it could best be utilized. The Meadows School of the Arts as a whole requires a lot of technical skills and equipment, especially in the journalism and film departments. The

In contrast, according to film major Amanda Presmyk, the film department’s equipment is extremely outdated and it hasn’t been replaced in years. “We have an equipment cage like journalism, but the resources in it are very old. We are seriously lacking the equipment that we

need, which causes us to miss out on a lot of projects. We as students can’t afford to go out to rental companies and rent the equipment we need because it’s so expensive. There is a lot of new affordable equipment out there, but we don’t have it,” Presmyk said. Separate from physical technical

I was a sorority girl and an athlete,” she said, “but boy, learning what alcohol does to your body is truly amazing.”

Taylor is a certified TIPS trainer among other SMU faculty and staff. TIPS is a program that was brought to SMU’s campus five years ago that teaches students about alcohol and drug abuse.

Crossfit: a unique fitness program and the paleo diet ANNE PARKER H&F Editor annep@smu.edu Sit ups. Air squats. Box jumps. Burpees. Three rounds. As hard as you can go. Out of breath already? This is an example of a CrossFit “Workout of the Day,” otherwise known as a WOD. CrossFit is a type of exercise program that is prescribed to include “constantly varied, high intensity, functional movements.” The workouts are short and usually do not last more than 20 minutes. But don’t let the short time fool you. There is nothing easy about CrossFit. With moves that are extremely intense and challenging, the main goal is to push yourself to go all out for the entire workout. The purpose of the program is to prepare your body for any and all kinds of activities. Many athletes use it as a conditioning tool to excel in his or her particular sports. Russell Aldredge, owner of CrossFit Deep Ellum said, “We use functional exercise, plyometrics, conditioning training, Olympic weight lifting, power lifting, gymnastics, running, jumping and throwing to help people reach their goals and maximize their health.”

Because the WOD is different every day, your body never knows what to expect. As a student always on the go, a really short and challenging workout sounds ideal. Mallory Johnson and Hillary Stapp are two busy SMU students who have done several CrossFit classes. “I like it because it is a high intensity workout that you can do in a short amount of time,” Johnson said. Stapp said, “Every time you go it is a different routine so you never get bored.” According to Aldredge, “this program is ideal for anyone trying to maximize the results of their fitness program while maintaining balance in their lives.” To achieve maximum results, the paleo diet is recommended in conjunction with CrossFit workouts. Aldredge said that the coaches are knowledgeable about diet and nutrition and know that is plays a key role into your workouts. “Everything you put in your body is either going to negatively, or positively impact your health, mood, sleep, and ability to achieve your desired fitness goals,” he said. “Our nutrition plan is easy to follow and is founded on the principle of real food and real results.”

You may hear the paleo diet referred to as the caveman diet because this diet gets back to the basics of how people ate thousands of years ago. It focuses on grass-fed meats, fish, eggs, nuts, vegetables and fruits. Grains, dairy, beans, potatoes and processed sugars are eliminated. Another unique aspect about CrossFit is the community that it creates. Most CrossFit gyms strive to create an encouraging team atmosphere. “Fitness isn’t just about how you look or how many miles you can run,” Aldredge said. “It carries over to how you work, play, eat and interact. We view our training program as just one method of improving and reinforcing important character traits. Some of these traits include confidence, discipline, courage, honesty, dedication and perseverance.”

ISLAM: Attendees denounce recent violence who emigrated from Libya in 1974, said. “Libya lost a friend.” Many in the crowd were of the opinion that millions of Muslims work hard to live up to the values of Islam of peace and tolerance, yet it was the extremists who make it to the news. They wanted to show the world that as Muslims they do not approve

of this violence, and that violence is not a way to express one’s opinion. Alaa Ali, a senior student at the University of Texas at Dallas, agreed. “This is a way of peacefully assembling to show America and the world that violence is never the answer even if you disagree.” “To honor the prophet and use peaceful means of protests, [we

should] study his biography and act upon it,” he added Politicians also attended the event. Katherine Savers McGovern, a Democratic candidate for 32nd Congressional District, was also present. “It was a moving experience to see American Muslims and

equipment needs, SMU Meadows senior and creative advertising major Jordan Swensson thinks the money should contribute to networking, especially in today’s job market. “The advertising department could really benefit from bringing in some Dallas area professionals. It has become such a competitive field that the more people you know, the better. The students in this major have some really great work to show, so I think trying to convey that in every way possible would really be of benefit to Temerlin students,” Swensson said. “SMU is in the heart of Dallas with access to so many professionals in the field, it’s just about getting them here and showing them what we can do. That’s the problem.” The Marriott family actually has a daughter currently majoring in advertising, and another daughter who graduated with a

Bachelor of Arts in 2010. It was their positive experience with the school that encouraged the family to make the donation. The president of SMU Public Relations Students Society of America (PRSSA) Caroline Boothe also believes the communication studies program could see some improvement with networking tools. The organization has several speakers come in throughout the semester, but Boothe claims there is always room for improvement. “I think that PRSSA could benefit from the donation because we could bring in more high profile speakers, which would in turn increase our membership. Our members would truly be able to expand their networks as a result and really get the full benefits of PRSSA, ” Boothe said. According to the Office of Undergraduate Admission the student to professor ratio is 12:1, Lauren Proctor believes the department could improve

exponentially from hiring more professors. “Advertising is a very handson major, and requires lots of technical skills that are not easy to learn. I think if this were to happen, the courses could be more in depth and focused on one particular skill rather than multiple crammed into one class,” senior creative advertising major Proctor said. According to President R. Gerald Turner, the gift will help contribute to SMU’s Second Century Campaign to endow 100 faculty positions and brings the current total to 85. The donation is a part of SMU’s $750 million Unbridled fundraising, The Second Century Campaign. Thus far the university has raised more than $631 million. The purpose of the campaign is to improve student quality, faculty and academic excellence at SMU, as well as the overall campus experience.

to have and have such a diverse group of people come in from all different perspectives.” According to the Health Center’s health educator and TIPS trainer Galen Laprecido, TIPS is implemented in SMU organizations such as the Interfraternity Council (IFC) and stretches across the Atlantic to SMU-in-Moscow, Paris and London. Many TIPS trainers credit the program’s success to the realistic and relative manner TIPS handles the hot button issue. “What I love about TIPS is that they were giving concrete information on how to deal with something rather than having to avoid it,” TIPS trainer and Asst. to the chair, Dept. of Electrical Engineering Susan Bailey. “All new members in the Theta house are required to go through TIPS training,” Mary Dill, recruitment director for Kappa Alpha Theta, said. “It wasn’t cheesy or exaggerated. I appreciated that it was realistic and relatable.” Bailey says the students’ responses are very frank in her sessions. She believes the students are able to be so open because they feel like they are not being judged. The open environment allows for a new and vital concept to be discussed among students when dealing with alcohol. “What students don’t know or what they don’t have is the confidence to step in and to be

the person to call,” Laprecido said. The same year this program was implemented was the same year SMU lost two undergraduates due to alcohol poisoning. TIPS trainers like to educate in a manner so that students know how to handle situations before they turn lethal. “We don’t want people to wait so long that they have to call 911,” Laprecido said. “There are ways to intervene earlier before it becomes a life or death situation.” Mixed drinks and cocktails make the measuring process all the more difficult and dangerous. “I never thought anything of it,” Taylor said. “Redbull is deadly when you mix it with vodka. And yet it is one of the most common drinks at the bars.” There is another common mixer that isn’t given as much scrutiny as the energy drink but is still responsible for increasing risks. According to Taylor, it is the simple fruit juice mixer that increases your alcohol levels because of the sugar and caffeine in fruit juice. “Women are more likely to get drunk faster because they have more body fat then men,” added Taylor. “It’s the body fat that absorbs the sugars and makes the filtering out process longer for your liver.” TIPS makes it a point to focus on the only element that will decrease alcohol blood levels. “Time,” Taylor said with certainty. “You can eat all the pizza, fried chicken, hot dogs and that’s not going to change the rate it takes to get to your system.” Apart from covering the body’s

physical effects from alcohol, TIPS also covers drinking’s effects on those around you. “Your actions from drinking are what cause the majority of the issues,” added Taylor. “Its very rare you see people die from overdose of drinking but the flipside is that what they do because of drinking is even worse.” According to Taylor, it’s drunk driving, possible rape and assault that is the “flipside” of drinking that can lead up to time in jail or death. SMU also joined the National College Health Improvement Project (NCHIP) as a result of of SMU’s 2007-08 President’s Task Force on Substance Abuse Prevention. SMU is the only Texas university to team up with the big guns such as Dartmouth, Stanford, Duke, Brown, Princeton, Purdue and Vanderbilt to fight binge drinking on college campuses. More than 40 percent of college students in the United States engage in binge drinking, a number that has remained virtually unchanged for decades, former Dartmouth College President Jim Yong Kim, said. TIPS plans to change that number with their program that educates, equips and empowers people about alcohol and what they can do. Bailey became a TIPS trainer because she had a son in college and was interested in a program that would really connect with today’s generation and one of its leading issues. “Today, hardly anybody’s life isn’t touched by someone who drinks alcohol.”

Famous television and movie actress Kathy Bates recently revealed via Twitter that she is fighting breast cancer.

SMU alum Kathy Bates fights breast cancer, wins first Emmy with guest-starring role PARMINDER DEO Associate A&E Editor pdeo@smu.edu Actress Kathy Bates revealed early last week that she is recovering from a double mastectomy after battling breast cancer over the summer months. Bates tweeted, “Hey all, sorry for the long silence. I was diagnosed with breast cancer 2 months ago & am recovering from a double mastectomy.” Her publicist reported that Bates did not undergo chemotherapy. Bates graduated from SMU in 1969 and developed

her talent as an actress through her performances in theater productions. Bates recently appeared on Anderson Cooper’s daytime talk show Anderson and spoke about SMU’s art program and its place in her acting career. The actress attributed the transition to a more conservatory style way of teaching during her time at SMU as a great help in becoming the actress she is today. She has played a diversity of characters in plays, films and television. Some of her accomplishments include an Academy Award and

Golden Globe for her role in Misery and a British Academy Award for her performance in Fried Green Tomatoes. The Oscar-winning actress faced another hurdle with the cancellation of her show titled Harry’s Law. Premiering in Jan. 2011, the American legal comedy drama was not picked up in May 2012 for a third season. Bates played Harriet Korn, a sarcastic passionate criminal defense lawyer trying to keep up with the new younger lawyers. Bates recieved critical acclaim for her lead role in the show. “I don’t miss my breasts as

much as I miss Harry’s Law. ;-) Thanks for all the sweet tweets. Y’all kept me going,” Bates tweeted. Recently, Bates was awarded a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her role as Charlie Harper’s (Charlie Sheen’s character) ghost in Two and a Half Men. She has been nominated for 11 Emmys and has never won until now. Bates is also in the running for Best Actress for her cancelled show Harry’s Law. Will Bates win a second Emmy at this Sunday’s Primtime Emmy Awards?

Mischer has been picked to be the show’s director for a third consecutive year. Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, the show’s producers, chose Mischer to direct the 85th annual broadcast. “For a very long time, we had always hoped to work with Don Mischer,” Zadan and Meron said in a release. “His talent and reputation are unsurpassed and we’re so happy he will be our collaborator on the 85th Academy Awards.”

Mischer has an impressive resume that includes the direction of Obama’s inauguration, the Kennedy Center Honors and several Super Bowl halftime shows. Mirscher’s previous attempt at directing the Oscars earned eight Emmy nominations, the most for any television special. “I am so very excited to be directing the Academy Awards again this year and to be working with creative producers like Craig and Neil,” Mischer said. “All of us at Don Mischer Productions are also thrilled to be producing the Oscar preshow, and most significantly to continue a wonderfully gratifying relationship with the Academy.” The Oscars are set to air on Feb. 24 on ABC networks.

Andrew Veenstra as Albert Narracott riding Joey, the main equine character, in the national our of ‘War Horse’ at the AT&T Performing Arts Center.

Despite stunning stage design, ‘War Horse’ misses overall mark CHASE WADE Arts & Entertainment Editor cdwade@smu.edu There’s plenty of visual pleasantries to keep the eye entertained on the national tour of War Horse. However, despite it’s on-stage appearance, the show is severely lacking in what matters most ­­— a compelling storyline. Adapted for the stage from the popular children’s book penned by Micheal Morpurgo, War Horse follows a boy and his horse as they are torn apart by the forces of World War I. Steven Spielberg took the story’s reins last winter in a cinematic adaption that earned the director and elusive Best Picture nod. Needless to say, War Horse is one of the most recognizable pieces of running theater today. One would think that with a story so steeped in emotion and heartache that the on-stage adaptation would overflow with emotional abundance. But, frankly, War Horse falls victim to trying to tell too many stories at once and ultimately dilutes the play in the process. Playing the male lead in War Horse is Andrew Veenstra as Albert Narracott. Narracott receives Joey after his drunken, proud father overpays for the mixed breed during an auction against his richer brother. Joey isn’t what one

would call an easy horse to deal with. With his ever-moving ears and flapping tail, Joey’s personality is portrayed through the puppets precise movements. Narracott tries everything in his power to break Joey in. The stakes in Joey’s training are raised when Narracott’s father drunkenly bets that the horse can plow despite its smaller stature. Throughout the first act, War Horse tends to prolong scenes with elaborately choreographed sequences of Joey that are used to showcased the astounding horse creation by the Handspring Puppet Company. Yes, the puppetry work is amazing and practically redefines the limits of the stage, however these prolonged sequences drastically take away from the show’s alreadysuffering pace. Joey and Narracott succeed in the plowing challenge and win back the money that Joey cost in the first place only to be met with the ominous church bells that signal war has begun. Once the virus that is war takes over War Horse, the play adopts a strikingly different mood. The concept of war and its overall presence with mankind has long been a topic tackled on the stage. In War Horse, war

takes over the stage with its blunt, bullet-filled battles and untold casualties. Joey finds himself across enemy lines as he was sold to the army to be an officer’s horse. Narracott, on the other hand, runs away from home and into the battlefield in hopes of being reunited with Joey. The remainder of War Horse follows the fallacies of war and the two main characters as they try to reunite witih one another. Most of the show’s second act takes place on the battlefield. As a results, parts of the second art are unfortunately cut short due the sudden blast of a bomb or rainfall of gun fire. This proves

to be a jarring experience for the audience that ultimately adds up as lazy storytelling. Due to this fact, the transition between scenes is sloppily staged and severely staccatoed. Despite its story’s shortcomings, War Horse is still worth seeing thanks to the remarkable puppetry. However, be prepared, at almost two and a half hours of production, the show can easily eat up your night.

Packs of people hurried along Elm Street, scavenging for last minute bites at Subway, or a pack of cigarettes at the corner 7-eleven before heading to Trees. Once inside, parties conversed, sipped alcohol and basked under a bubbling flow of house, electro-soul and hiphop music. A near hobbit of a man in a windbreaker stood at the center of the dance floor, tongue outstretched, holding up a Confess LP in a manner that lightened the already waggish atmosphere. The air murmured with anticipation for Twin Shadow’s soon-to-be exhilarating set. “I went to Bonnaroo last year, and I didn’t see him, because hadn’t actually listened to him,” Andrew Ramsey, 21, said. “I heard about his album from Pitchfork, his first album Forget, and then I listened to Confess when it came out. I really dig it, so I wanted to come down and see [him].” Vulnerable baritone George Lewis, Jr., aka Twin Shadow deals in mirthful, echo-laden torch songs concerning lovers past. Lewis released his debut album, the new romantic Forget in 2010. Confess, his 2012 breakthrough, brightens up the old formula with intimate new wave owing to bands like The Police and The Cure. Local musician and opening act New Fumes brought the first flock of bodies to the dance floor with his thrashing psych-folk improvisations and accompanying, bizarrohumorous video show. Following act Niki and the Doves played a shamanistic set filled with cheeky ‘80s synths and anthemic fem-wales, loosening more concert-goers

into jigs throughout their performance. Thirty minutes after the opening sets, Lewis sauntered from the left side of the stage. Dressed in a black blazer, white jeans and a fashionablymarred, skinny black tank top, the singer was joined onstage by a bassist, drummer, and keyboard player. After a hearty “What’s up, Dallas!” Lewis said. The foursome proceeded with the show. Now, a person turned off to Twin Shadow could argue that the music bleeds too lovelorn for its own good. Live, however, is a different story. Fan favorites like the anthems “Run the Heart” and “Tyrant Destroyed” were invigorated with an aura not felt on record; the performance was easily thrice as loud as the album. Lewis radiated for the audience while playing Vitamin C-rich guitar solos that sweetened the already impressive show. Pouty, lovesick mystique aside, Lewis was quite jocular during the set. Between songs were moments where Lewis revealed an affection for Dallas that grew during motorcycle trips through the city. Self-deprecating jokes about his professed lackluster 2011 show at the Granada Theater strengthened the melodic convent between Lewis and the audience. After playing two encores, Twin Shadow announced his departure to The Round-Up Saloon and invited an already smitten crowd of 500 to join him. “I think these guys are really going to blow up, man,” Shannon Barrett, 36, said. “I would be really surprised if the next time they’re in town, it’s not like a larger venue in need of more people.”

How a letter home might look in 1978 Rick Larson Contributor

Dear ‘Rents: Whew! I left home last Friday so I could drive to Dallas and check in to my dorm at SMU. Well, I got lost and ended up on Greenville Avenue and didn’t get over to my dorm until Sunday afternoon! You were right. I should have shaved my beard and cut the hair off my shoulders. I should have left the White farmer’s overalls and the terry cloth shirt at home, too. When I arrived that first day in Cockrell and went out in the hall to meet the guys, everyone scattered. I heard one guy whisper, “I didn’t know SMU accepted BIKERS.” I was in solitary for the first couple of days—I hung out in my room because no one was coming by when this nice kid on the floor suggested I go over to Culwell & Son, a men’s store, and let them fix me up. I shaved and walked over there and told the barber to give me a “SMU haircut.” My hair hasn’t been this short since the sixth grade! I went in to the clothing part of the store and told the salesman that I needed some “SMU clothes.” He came back with a stack of stuff, none of which I could afford. He said that was okay, that I could charge it all on my SMU student ID. What I spent was kind of like a mini-student loan. I got these long-sleeve dress shirts that have buttons on the collars, some golf shirts with little alligators on the front (since Polo hasn’t been invented yet) and a couple of elastic belts with pink and green and red and navy stripes on them. You know those tan work pants that we wear on the farm and to paint the house in, Dickies? They call them “khakis” around here and wear them to class. The sales guys asked if I owned any “Weejuns.” I told him no, but I did have a Ouija board once. He smiled and brought me a pair, along with these shoes like we used to make in Indian Guides, you know, those brown moccasins? They call them Topsiders and you don’t wear socks with them. I don’t know. They’re supposed to be cool but they kill my feet and smell terrible after walking around all day to classes. I came back to the dorm and all of a sudden, I had a bunch of new friends. They all slapped palms with me (because “high fives” haven’t been invented yet) and then asked me out for beers that evening. I know you’ve wondered if I might have “an alcohol problem,” but don’t worry, there’s a Parkit Market and a State Liquor, nearby, Greenville Avenue, too, so there’s no problem getting alcohol. Besides, I only drank twice this first week: the first time was for three days and the second time was for two days. The guys liked that I brought grandma’s home movie projector along. We showed an adult movie out the window of Cockrell and right on the girls’ dorm wall across the way, like a drive-in. I shut it down because someone said security was nearby. I’d hate to get expelled before the first class even started! Still, it was funny, watching everyone below pointing up and yelling. I hear the fraternities like stuff like that. Gotta go. I’m driving the guys to Cardinal Puff ’s this evening. One day, they will rename it “Ozona.” Love, Me.

Why we didn’t publish an investigative story focused on SMU On page 1 of today’s issue, The Daily Campus reports the Sept. 4 indictment of SMU student Donald Samuel Cuba by a Dallas County grand jury. The story dates back to the early morning hours of Feb. 10, 2012, when Cuba allegedly sexually assaulted another SMU student in her on-campus residence hall room. While the real account of what transpired that night remains to be told and adjudicated in forthcoming legal proceedings, the story of how this indictment was first reported last Friday in Fort Worth’s alternative weekly – The Fort Worth Weekly – is one, we feel, merits open discussion. As reported by The Fort Worth Weekly Friday, the SMU student — after being found guilty and then innocent by two separate SMU judicial review panels — was taken to court by his victim. He was indicted by a grand jury in Dallas County for rape on Sept. 4. The Fort Worth Weekly continues that the rape occurred on the SMU campus and that both the victim and the accused are SMU students. The question becomes: Why did a story centered around SMU run in the Fort Worth Weekly instead of running in The Daily Campus? The answer is a complex one, but it revolves around three issues: outside pressures, privilege and ethics on sources and editorwriter relationships. When The Daily Campus or any other newspaper decides to report on a story, it is critical that editors and writers are on the same page. When the

team of writers — in this instance, one current student and two former students — approached the editorial staff about running the piece last Wednesday, The Daily Campus reached an agreement with the writers. The Daily Campus would have first right of refusal on the piece. The Daily Campus editors also requested that the writers work with the editors in a collaborative way. The next day, the writers presented a final draft. After reading the final draft, The Daily Campus editors wanted to push back publication of the story to Sunday (online) due to a couple of concerns. We wanted to carefully vet the story before publication — a common expectation in the journalism industry. However, the next day, the editors learned the writers were “shopping” the story around to multiple publications, including The Dallas Observer and Fort Worth Weekly. Red flags were raised when a reporter at The Dallas Observer learned about confidential talks the paper had with writers on the sensitive story. Even more worrisome was the unwillingness of the writers to reveal confidential sources to The DC editor-in-chief. The Daily Campus never intended to reveal confidential sources in print. Instead, we faced backlash from writers when we requested the names of the confidential sources. It is pertinent that editors know the identity of sources for multiple reasons. Firstly, editors can verify

the authority and veracity of sources used. Secondly, editors can look for other sources that are willing to go public with the same information. Thirdly, editors must ensure that the credibility of the paper is protected when using confidential sources. If sources are later discredited, the paper suffers. It is the exception and not the rule when writers refuse to reveal confidential sources to editors. Perhaps most importantly, The Daily Campus found that no matter how important the story, it could not cross an important ethical line. As a student newspaper, it is an unstated rule that the paper only serves as a platform for student writers. Two writers on the piece, who are currently employed at the Texas Law Book, are not current students. But, shockingly, one of the graduated writers called the mother of the alleged rapist falsely identifying himself as a Daily Campus reporter. The paper also received a tip that another writer on the team had approached SMU organizations as a Daily Campus reporter. If The Daily Campus were to publish the story, it would undermine everything it has stood for and continues to stand for: ethical and responsible journalism. The bottom line is the writers

came to us with a story and wanted it to get published as soon as possible. We wanted to make sure the story was sound. The writers chose not to address our questions, but instead sought other outlets for publication without telling us their intentions. That’s their prerogative. This board’s contention is that The Daily Campus acted in a responsible and consistent manner when deciding what to do with the story. The Dallas Observer, which originally criticized our editors for failing to publishing the story for political reasons, wrote the paper an email that said, “The story was initially presented to us as The Daily Campus essentially killing a controversial story for essentially political reasons. After considering the facts and speaking with you guys, it became clear that this wasn’t the case and that the editors were simply doing what editors are supposed to do: carefully vetting a story before publication... [I] feel the DC editors made the correct decision under difficult circumstances and should be applauded for doing so.” An independent journalist made the conclusion above. And, it is important to note The Daily Campus is not forgetting — or hiding — the story.

Abstinence before marriage a lofty, difficult, and worthwhile aspiration for modern youth W. Tucker Keene Opinion Editor tkeene@smu.edu This past weekend I read an article from a favorite writer of mine, comedian Steven Crowder, about his experience with celibacy before his marriage last month. He had written several other articles about this and related topics before, such as on getting married young and on the value of waiting to have sex until after marriage, and I always enjoyed reading them. There aren’t enough articles out there that show support for the choice that many people, including myself, make about when to have sex. Reading them always reassures me that I’ve made the right choice, and they often come at times when I’m doubting how realistic that choice is. This most recent article was a victory lap of sorts, a message

to his critics that it is actually possible to wait, and that its totally worth it. Aside from the benefit of zero chance of STDs and STIs, Crowder said it makes the wedding night more than just one big party, it makes it a spiritual experience that will be remembered for the rest of your life. When nothing significant changes in the couple’s behavior before and after the night of the wedding, the marriage itself is cheapened. If the couple is already living together and having sex, then their wedding only represents another night of drunken partying. For me, the decision wasn’t a particularly religious one, like it was for Tim Tebow for example, but rather a more practical one. Delaying gratification makes the reward that much better. Couples who abstain have

stronger marriages and have a much more trusting bond with their partner. STDs and STIs are completely avoided. The only downside is that apparently the wedding night would be awkward and terrible because neither partner has had any experience or practice. Crowder points out that it certainly wasn’t awkward or terrible for him, because of what it signified for him and his wife. What I ask though, is why is practicing and improving with a large variety of partners so great? Why is that somehow preferable to steady improvement with your loving spouse? When I decided on this and told my family of my choice, it wasn’t met particularly well. My brother called it an excuse, my father told me how important college was as a time to experiment and learn,

how I was limiting myself in an unrealistic way. My mother thought better of it, and my stepmother did say something to the effect of “Good for you,” and I remember her talking positively about some friends of hers that had done the same. The decision doesn’t make my life easier, but I am certainly proud to do it and unafraid to admit it. And reassuring words from Steven Crowder like, “If you’re wondering whether all of the mocking, the ridicule, the incredible difficulty of saving yourself for your spouse is worth it, let me tell you without a doubt that it is,” make me absolutely sure I’ve made the right decision. Now I just need to find a girl who’s made the same choice I have. Keene is a junior majoring in political science, economics and public policy.

the game scoreless. The game seemed to be in jeopardy in the 80th minute when Oakland’s Johnny Dreshaj hit the ground inside of the box, earning him a penalty kick. Dreshaj tried to go right with it but goalkeeper Jaime Ibarra anticipated the move and made a diving save to deflect the ball. Team captain TJ Nelson was there to clear it out. “I saw him take two stutter steps and I figured he was going right,” Ibarra said. “Luckily TJ [Nelson] was there to clear it out.” The game-winning goal came

Men It was a wet night at Westcott Field on Friday when the Mustangs defeated Oakland University 1-0 in an intense overtime thriller. Freshman Leobardo Vazquez scored the winning goal to put SMU at 3-2-1 for the season. The game was close as both teams seemed to be playing tight. It was difficult to tell whether or not the rain affected the Mustangs game plan as the team seemed to play most of the first half in a defensive frame of mind. “We actually like to play in the rain,” head coach Tim McClements said. “We feel it helps our style of play. It does make for a nervous game but I thought that the rain really wasn’t that big of a factor.” Early on, Tyler Engel broke

in the 95th minute off a feed from Andrew Morales to Vazquez who shook a defender and the goalie, bringing the fans to their feet as the Mustangs won. The goal was Vazquez’s first career game-winner. The Mustangs finished up the SMU Classic against UC Davis on Sunday.

Women With only seconds left, Shelby Redman fired a 30-yard strike to give SMU the win over TCU Sept. 7. Friday night against undefeated

Baylor, it seemed as though Redman would continue her heroics in Waco, Texas, but the Bears proved unable to weather the Mustang’s rally and come away with the 2-1 win in overtime. "It's disappointing," head coach Chris Petrucelli told SMU athletics. "We could have come out with at least a tie. We were in it and just let down there at the end." Redman brought the score to 1-1 in the 87th minute off a corner kick from Courtney Smith, who picked up her fifth assist of the year and is No. 22 in the nation in assists per game.

Baylor put pressure on the Mustangs’ defense all game long; The Bears outshot SMU 17-2 in the first half alone. By the end of the game the Bears had twice as many shots on goal as the Mustangs. Despite the relentless attacks by Baylor SMU did not relinquish a goal until the 61st minute. Goalkeeper Lauryn Bodden had a career-high six saves on the night. The Mustangs, 3-4, returned to Westcott field for the first time in three weeks to face Oklahoma Sunday.

NHL begins another lockout KENT KOONS News Director kkoons@smu.edu The Dallas Stars are set to open its season Oct. 13, in Phoenix. When that Saturday night comes around, it’s possible that Jobing. com Arena, home of the Phoenix Coyotes, will be empty. No lights, no players and no fans. These are the effects of the NHL lockout. Since 1992, the National Hockey League has lost 1,698 games due to labor issues. That number is expected to go up after the Collective Bargaining Agreement expired at midnight Eastern on Saturday. After months of negotiations, the NHL and the NHL Players’ Association were unable to come to an agreement. This is the third NHL lockout since 1994, and the first since the lost 2004-05 season The following season saw a flurry of rule changes and a new salary cap system. Ultimately, these changes were all successful. The NHL signed a 10 year, $2 billion dollar TV deal with NBC in 2011. The salary cap system made the league more competitive, with seven different teams capturing the Stanley Cup in the seven seasons since the lockout. This has all led to record revenue, a reported $3.3 billion last year. The NHL’s proposals have

all had the players’ share of that revenue decrease. Currently the players’ salary comes from their 57 percent share of the overall revenue. The league’s offers would decrease that percentage to 49 this season, and gradually drop to 47 percent over the next six seasons. The Players’ Association came back with an offer that would see the salary cap go up over the next three years before going to a percentage based split of the revenue.This has led to both sides being hundreds of millions of dollars apart, with neither side willing to budge. As happened in 2004, players are expected to sign deals and play in various leagues around the world until the NHL and the NHLPA have a new agreement. Less than a day into the lockout, two of the game’s biggest stars have already signed deals to play in Russia’s Kontinental Hockey League, Detroit’s Pavel Datsyuk and Pittsburgh’s Evgeni Malkin. Training camps are set to open later this month, but that is now in doubt. If the lockout leads to the cancellation of games, both the league and players will lose millions of dollars. Neither side wants that, but more importantly, they need to remember who a lockout effects the most—the fans.

SMU falls to Manziel, Aggies 48-3 Samarippas, cuts

by Brown move on, transfer to play KELSEY CHARLES Associate Sports Editor kcharles@smu.edu

SIDNEY HOLLINGSWORTH/The Daily Campus

Quarterback Garrett Gilbert was sacked four times by the Texas A&M defense in the 48-3 loss Saturday in Ford Stadium.

Billy Embody Staff Writer wembody@smu.edu SMU’s much-anticipated matchup against the Texas A&M Aggies was more of a showcase of one of the Southeastern Conference’s rising stars quarterback in redshirt freshman Johnny Manziel. “I knew it was going to be tough [to contain Manziel],” SMU head coach June Jones said. After the 48-3 loss Saturday, Jones fell to 0-5 against Aggies coach Kevin Sumlin in his career. “I thought if we had answered anything to the game early offensively when the defense stopped them the first five or six times we had the ball, I think that everybody would have rallied up,” Jones said.

Manziel dazzled a crowd of 32,016 at Ford Stadium, the sixthhighest attended game at Ford Stadium. Manziel racked up 418 total yards and six touchdowns, but his legs did most of the work as he had 124 yards rushing and two touchdowns. Offensively for the Aggies, the team were able to do what most teams have been able to do against the Mustangs this year: rack up big yardage. The SMU defense gave up 605 yards to total 1,670 yards over three games this year. “It’s definitely frustrating,” SMU linebacker Taylor Reed said. “[Manziel is] a great athlete, I’ll say that. He’s really shifty.” While the Texas A&M offense made the SMU defense look overwhelmed, the SMU offense was

overwhelmed by an Aggie defense that sacked quarterback Garrett Gilbert four times and limited him to 203 yards passing on 49 attempts. What was worse was the third down conversion rate for the Mustangs, which was a dismal 3-for-18. “We couldn’t convert the last two weeks on third down. We’ve been terrible. You can’t win doing that,” Jones said. Even SMU running back Zach Line had trouble, who had just 31 yards at halftime before finishing with 107 yards rushing and 35 yards receiving against mostly A&M backups. SMU receivers also weren’t a factor and senior Darius Johnson and junior Jeremy Johnson were held without a catch going into halftime. The shifty slot receivers

are focal points for the offense and Gilbert had a rough day getting the ball to them. Texas A&M was held scoreless after the first quarter, but broke through on a 29-yard touchdown reception by Ryan Swope. Then after forcing a three-and-out, Manziel took off for a 48-yard touchdown run on the first play of the possession. SMU senior defensive end Margus Hunt then blocked the extra point to give him 16 career blocked kicks, which ties him for second all-time on the list of most blocked kicks. Hunt has a shot to break the record if he can get to 20 blocks by the end of the season. SMU looks to get back in the win column after a bye week hosting rival TCU on Sept. 29. The Mustangs are 1-2 this season.

There was an enormous amount of hype surrounding the arrival of Hall of Fame coach Larry Brown on campus in the spring of 2012. But the high was short-lived for some, as he quickly cut four members of the men’s basketball team. Jeremiah Samarrippas, RicmondsVilde, Leslee Smith, and Eric Norman were let go from the team after having individual meetings with Brown, while Jordan Walker chose to leave soon after. Six months later, all five players have moved on to different chapters in their lives with many transferring to other schools to continue their basketball careers. One of the most shocking cuts Brown made was starting point guard Samarrippas. Samarrippas, a junior from Bartow, Fla., started both his freshman and sophomore seasons at SMU. In the 2011-12 season, in which he served as captain, Samarrippas averaged 6.9 points, 2.2 rebounds,and ranked fifth in Conference USA in assists with 4.2 a game. He shot 32.4 percent from behind the arc and was solid from the line missing only six free throws the entire season. Samarrippas was a leader on

the team, and being cut by Brown came as a shock to the starter. “He just said the program was going in a different direction— they would bring in Kansas and Kentucky type players. I was shocked and it was tough on me because I had a lot of friends at SMU,” Samarripas said. Samarrippas was soon faced with the decision on whether to stay at SMU, or go elsewhere to continue playing basketball. “I did consider staying at SMU because education is a big part, and obviously SMU’s education is good. But at the end of the day, the reason why I was at SMU was because of basketball,” he said. Soon after announcing his intent to transfer, the recruiting process began. The potential suitors included Tulane, Mississippi State, University of Central Florida and American Universtiy, but in the end, Tennessee Tech won. “The coaches made me feel like they wanted me more than anyone else they were recruiting at the time. They explained that I would be a big impact to their program and I would get to play the way I wanted to play,” Samarrippas said. Norman and Smith followed in Samarrippas’ footsteps transferring out of SMU. Norman is at Montana State while Smith is playing at Seward County Community College in Liberal, Kan. Unlike his other teammates, Vilde decided to remain at SMU to earn his undergraduate degree after losing his spot on the team. “A lot of coaches are talking to me and they wanted me to transfer this year, but I didn’t want to go because otherwise I wouldn’t be able to graduate a year early and I want a degree from SMU,” Vilde said. Walker, a freshman from Arlington, Texas, realized his fate before even meeting with Brown. “He seemed like a pretty good guy, but he was cutting all of our players, including the starting point guard, so I figured I wouldn’t get much, if any, playing time. That’s why I left,” Walker said. He too, briefly considered staying at SMU, but his love of basketball won out in the end and he transferred to Dallas Baptist University in Plano, Texas. Walker said what he liked most about the coaches at Dallas Baptist was “how hard they push us to be the best team we can be on the court, but then off the court, we can still joke with them and talk to them about anything.” The players echoed each other’s sentiments on the lessons they’ve learned throughout the entire process. “The game of basketball is a business,” Vilde said. “People get cut without seeing you play live.” “At the end of the day, college basketball is a business and nothing is guaranteed,” Walker said. “The game of basketball, even at the college level, is a business,” Samarrippas said. “I’ve matured a lot, not only in basketball, but in life. I’ll learn from this. I have learned from this.” Despite big changes in their lives, Samarrippas, Vilde and Walker have their sights set on the future. “I’m majoring in psychology and I hope to go to graduate school and get into forensic psychology. If I have a chance to play after college I’ll definitely take it,” Walker said. “This year I’m going to work out with other coaches to keep myself in shape. I’m trying to graduate next summer and after that probably transfer somewhere else and play two more years,” Vilde said. “If you really want to do something you’ll find a way, if not, you’ll find an excuse.” “I’m trying to be as successful as I can [at Tennesse Tech],” Samarrippas said. “I don’t want to say I want to prove Larry Brown wrong, but I do, because I know I can play.”
