Deadline for J-Term nears The registration deadline for J-Term courses is only four weeks away, and the application is due at 4 p.m. on Nov. 23. J-Term courses are offered at SMU-in-Plano. This allows students the opportunity to complete three credit hours in eight class days. Students pay a reduced tuition rate per credit hour. The program dates are Jan. 3 through Jan. 12.

Storm slams Northeast Over three million on the U.S. northeastern coast have lost power due to the unseasonably early October snowstorm on Saturday. The storm has killed at least three: an 84-yearold man in Pennsylvania, a motorist in Connecticut and a third person in Massachusetts, where a man ignored police barricades and touched a metal guard rail that had been charged by downed power lines. The storm broke records in New York City, which was slammed with up to two inches of snow per hour, and Vermont, which expected to get 15 inches. Air travel remains inconsistent.

‘Puss in Boots’ wins box office The animated Shrek spinoff “Puss in Boots” won the box office this weekend making $34 million. This is the best Halloween weekend debut ever. Some analysts expected the film to earn over $40 million, but say that its take may have been limited because of competing Halloween festivities. Paranormal Activity 3 took the second place spot with $18.5 million.

Correction In the Oct. 28 edition of The Daily Campus we mistakenly printed that the last quote of the “SMU holds memorial” article was said by Yvonne Blair. In fact it was Yvette Blair who said, “I think it’s important for SMU to have a Service of Memory to show that we truly are a family in that we truly value and honor and respect the staff, professors and students who are a part of this university.” The Daily Campus apologizes for this mistake.

Pumpkin patch sets up Halloween fairytale By SUMMER DASHE Video Editor

When Cinderella’s fairy godmother turned a pumpkin into a carriage, she probably had no idea how far that idea would go. The Dallas Arboretum, a 66acre garden overlooking Dallas’ White Rock Lake, hosts many seasonal themes, and this fall, it was a fairytale. The botanical gardens at The Dallas Arboretum have been transformed into something out of a storybook. In the spirit of Halloween, the gardens have been turned into a pumpkin patch. “Cinderella’s Pumpkin Village” allows visitors to see a variety of pumpkin breeds that line the walkways. Local architecture and construction teams also constructed fairy tale castles to go along with the theme. The Dallas Arboretum is the only garden in the world to have four fairytale houses made entirely of pumpkins. Patti Tinkle, who visited the gardens with her two grandchildren, was impressed with the amount of pumpkins she saw at the Arboretum. Tinkle said her favorite part of the village was “learning that there are so many different kinds of pumpkins.” This weekend, visitors saw

children and their parents, dressed in costume during the Arboretum’s Family Fun Weekend, complete with trick or treating through the Pumpkin Village. Volunteers worked at tables around the gardens to pass out candy to the young children who came in costume.

“I like all the kids and how they’re all really excited to see you,” Grace Greenblatt, a local high school student volunteering at the event, said. All volunteers were dressed in costumes adding to the ambiance of the fairytale theme. Throughout the garden, cafés

and food stands sent smells of popcorn and candy swirling about amidst the flowers and pumpkins. All ages and demographics showed up to celebrate the holiday and witness the enchanted gardens. Cinderella’s Pumpkin Village

will be open until Nov. 23.

Obama recognizes achievements of SMU dean By SARAH KRAMER Managing Editor

President Obama nominated Dean David Chard of the Annette Caldwell Simmons School of Education and Human Development to the Board of Directors of the National Board for Education Sciences recently. Chard will work with 14 other board members to oversee and direct the work of the Institute of Education Sciences, which is responsible for collecting and analyzing education research data. The Institute also works to fund

researchers around the country who are working to improve education, specifically for at risk students. In addition to these tasks, the Institute is also in charge of the Nation’s Report Card. Chard, who is the Leon Simmons Endowed Dean, has proved his dedication to education, research and teaching as both a community and national leader. “Dr. Chard’s nomination to the National Board for Education Sciences is recognition of his lifetime dedication to helping children learn,” President R.

Gerald Turner said. “As a scientist, his work is a model of the importance of evidence-based research in the development of education policy and curriculum. As a leader, he brings this same sense of innovation to preparing Simmons School students to become exceptional teachers and leaders.” Since becoming dean in 2007, he has helped the school of education and human development become known as a research center in America. “Through his research, teaching and leadership, he is in

the forefront of providing new insights into the way students learn and how teachers can be more effectively trained in reaching young learners,” Turner said in a press release. He obtained his Bachelor’s of Science from Central Michigan University and then earned his P.h.D. from the University of Oregon. He has served on many boards that support high quality educational opportunities for children such as the International Academy for Research in Learning Disabilities. Chard was asked by the White

House to not comment on his nomination until being confirmed by the Senate.



Let Adam ‘Still’ your vote

Johnson announces re-election campaign


For students who don’t already know Adam Still, the captain of the SMU men’s soccer team, it wouldn’t take long after meeting him to see why he chosen as a finalist for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award. Admired and respected by his fellow teammates and coaches, it is evident why Still is one of the 10 men’s soccer finalist for the award. After being nominated by a member of the school, Still was then handpicked by a committee that evaluated different aspects of the player’s life. The committee focused on the player’s excellence in the community and classroom, along with their character and competition. Diogo de Almeida, a senior on the team who plays defense with Still, seems to be one of Still’s biggest supporters. “He’s always helping us,” Almeida said. “Even outside of the field and school.” However, Still’s presence on the team has been something that he had to work for. The senior from Colleyville,

Texas came to SMU as a freshman and has been a letterman for the past three years. Tim McClements, SMU men’s soccer head coach, remembers when Still first joined the team and has admired his work ethic ever since. Unlike many other players, Still has been the type of player McClements’ says can handle “adversity” and does so with a tremendous amount of poise and class. “You don’t come across players like him too often,” McClements said. “The thing that I don’t think people realize sometimes is that he

is a very caring individual and he’s tough as nails.” During the 2010 to 2011 season, Still started for the Mustangs in all 20 games and played 1,808 of 1,880 minutes of the season. The defender also scored his first collegiate goal against No.17 Tulsa from 75 yards out 10/20 and collected an assist Sept. 6 vs. Seattle. Still has also been recognized as a part of the 2009 and 2010 CoSIDA ESPN Academic AllAmerica District VI Team as well as the 2010 CoSIDA ESPN Academic All-America Third Team but his accomplishments don’t stop there. He was also recognized as an Academic All-Conference USA recipient in 2010. After college, Still plans to put his accounting degree to use, trading in his cleats and shin guards for loafers and ties. Students wishing to vote for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award recipient is available online. Fans can vote for Still one time a day per computer and cellphone. The winner will be determined by a combination of fan, media and Division 1 head coaches’ votes.

Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson announced Friday she would run for her 11th term as District 30’s representative to the U.S. House. “I declare that I will run for reelection one term at a time,” she said in front of a crowd of supporters at Southwest Center Mall in South Dallas. “I don’t even know where the district lines are going to be, but you can be sure I have been on the front lines of them.” Redistricting was a constant theme in Johnson’s reelection announcement. She even credited the fight for more minority seats in North Texas as part of the reason she was running for re-election. “The only thing that fires me up is when I set a goal and I know it is the right thing to do. Then I know I will get it done,” she said, prompting cheers from the crowd. Three Dallas City Council

members spoke at the campaign kick off, including Tenell Atkins, Pauline Medrano and Vonciel Jones Hill. Atkins, who called Johnson “the first lady of Dallas,” called attention to Johnson’s experience before endorsing her reelection. “When you fight for something, you don’t want a rookie fighting for you,” he said. Johnson has represented District 30 since 1993. She has served on the Committee of Science and Technology and the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. She was also the chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus from 2001 to 2003. “We need someone who understands D.C. You don’t want to put a rookie in the game because they might make a mistake, and we can’t afford to make a mistake in November,” Atkins said. Johnson spoke openly of the state she felt the country was in, calling out Democrats who seemed to be abandoning

Use online banking with caution By PARTH SHETH Staff Writer

One of the marvels of modern technology is that we can now access wireless networks, or Wi-Fi, just about anywhere, whether we are sitting at Starbucks drinking coffee or waiting at the doctor’s office for an appointment. The ease of Internet accessibility gives us the capability to shop, order food and even bank online. Online banking, while extremely convenient, can also be very dangerous. Whether you use a phone or a computer to view your account online, others can gain access to your accounts if you do not take precautions to sufficiently protect them. While online banking is generally safe, people often make mistakes when it comes to personal security that put their account information at risk. The first mistake people make is having a very simple password. Many of the most common passwords involve the letters QWERTY on the keyboard, the numbers 123456 or simple words such as “password,” “princess” or “letmein.” If you have one of these

Per onal Finan e passwords, you may want to change it to something more unique and hacker-proof. Many institutions require passwords to include a combination of different letters, numbers and symbols. Following these guidelines will give you a strong password. But, remember to never use birthdays, first or last names, pets’ names or any other personal information. Additionally, make sure you use different passwords for different accounts. And, if possible, change the passwords on important accounts at least twice a year. The second mistake people make is not using anti-virus and anti-spyware software to protect their computers. If your computer is infected with a Trojan virus or worm, it is very likely these programs will record each keystroke you make and then send it to hackers. With this information, the hackers can wreak havoc on your account. The easiest solution for this

is to invest in protection software for your computer. Getting anti-virus software is only half the solution; you must keep these programs up to date, so they can protect you from the newest types of viruses and spyware. Another mistake people make is sharing too much information on social media sites. When signing up for online banking, the bank will often ask you to answer two or three security questions in case you forget your password. These are often simple personal questions such as, “What is your pet’s name?” or “What is your favorite sports team?” Much of this information can be found by looking at an individual’s Facebook or Twitter. To prevent this, make sure the information on your Facebook and Twitter is only accessible to your friends and those you know. Additionally, if the bank gives you a list of security questions to pick from, choose ones that you are not likely to reveal on social networking sites. For example, a question asking for your mother’s maiden name would serve as better protection than a question that asks for your pet’s name.

Campus Events

Finally, the fourth most common mistake is using public Wi-Fi or even public computers to manage an account online. Doing so gives people several opportunities to steal a person’s information. In fact, there are hackers who do just that: wait for people to log on to their account using public Wi-Fi and steal their information by using the same network. Using a public computer is even more dangerous. Anyone who has access to public computers can download keystroke-tracking software onto the computers and gather personal information this way. The institutions that run these online banking sites continually find ways to improve security, especially keeping up with hackers’ innovative techniques, to insure your personal information is safe. Bottom line? As long as you are careful about where you access your account and the information you share publicly, you should not worry about the security of online banking.

New IFC policy sees improvement By SARAH KRAMER

SMU’s “party school” reputation may soon diminish if the Interfraternity Council’s executive board decides to ban freshmen boys from attending registered events for the first six weeks of school. After experimenting with the idea this semester, IFC decided that they wanted to continue the policy into future semesters. “The six week period was very successful,” Brian Rose, IFC president, said. Although the process went well this year, there are still some improvements IFC wishes to make. “I have some tweaks that we noticed that could make it better,” Rose said. All changes must be approved by the executive board, however. According to Rose, recruitment numbers have been low for the past few years, partly due to the

number of alcohol violations (AV) freshmen boys received after attending parties. Freshmen boys cannot go through recruitment if they obtain more than two AVs in their first semester of college. IFC hoped that this new policy would help ease freshmen men into the college environment while “decreasing bad habits.” Though it is difficult to say if there were any correlations between the instillation of the policy and the decrease in AV’s, it appears thus far that recruitment numbers are higher this year than in previous years. At the first recruitment meeting of the semester, Rose said nearly 370 men signed up. This is up more than 70 men from last year. “I think students are starting to realize the value of being in a fraternity and that fraternity men are multi-dimensional,” Rose said. “We hope for a good turn out come rush week.”

Occupy Dallas continues to gain momentum By CHRISTINE JONAS Associate A&E Editor

While attending college at Louisiana State University, Eubilia Engel decided to study nursing. Once in the program, she decided nursing was not a good fit so she dropped out. Engel, 23, has been traveling and working odd jobs ever since. She currently lives in Arlington with her younger brother who attends the University of Texas at Arlington. She works as a part-time waitress. When the protest movement Occupy Dallas began Oct. 6, Engel jumped at the opportunity to join and has been a strong figure in the movement. She is in charge of running the library at the Occupy Dallas headquarters on S. Akard Street. She organizes the books that have been donated and distributes them to people interested in learning about issues involving political science or economics. She has been camped out at the site since day one, leaving only to work and bathe. Engel is one of the dozens of people who have joined Occupy Dallas. Their demands aren’t completely clear and interviews with a handful of people recently found a wide array of perspectives and goals. The group on any given day includes people from those who barely graduated fifth grade, to people with graduate degrees and full time jobs. “Think about it like a family at the Thanksgiving dinner table, when everyone goes around saying what they are thankful for. You are not going to get one consistent answer,” Robert Porter, a leader for Occupy Dallas who received his MBA in Management Information Systems from University of Dallas and currently works for the Texas Department of Transportation, said. “A key thread that everyone participating in Occupy Dallas agrees on is fighting injustice.”


The Occupy Dallas protests began on Oct. 6. Protesters with the movement have been camped out ever since.

The Occupy Wall Street movement in New York City set off a global protest movement just over a month ago. It is headquartered in Zuccotti Park in lower Manhattan. Protesters there explain the movement on the Occupy Wall Street website as a “leaderless resistance movement with people of many colors, genders and political persuasions. The one thing we all have in common is that we are the 99 percent that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1 percent.” Now, according to Aaron Stouder, one of the Occupy Dallas participants, over 1,600 cities across the world are participating in the movement “We are all here for our own individual beliefs and rights. I am here because I can not find a job. I have been looking for a job for months now,” Kyle Helton, an Occupy Dallas participant, said. “Anytime I do find a job it is part time, there is no full time work available.” Protesters say they want to educate people on what they believe

is the corruption in major banks, major corporations and government. They want people to understand that the richest people make up 1 percent of the population and they have power over everything, a power that has lead to the economic collapse of the world. “We are wanting to raise awareness and get people talking about justice and talking about the unfairness that is going on,” Porter said. “Right now the attitude that is prevalent is if you can get more money you should get more money. That is not right. This is not a fight against the wealthy, it is about addressing the imbalance among all people.” Stouder said he wants to wake people up and get them to talk among themselves. He wants the movement to create a radical reconstruction of the American government. He believes the major corruption resides in the pharmaceutical, energy and oil industries. Another participant, Jesse Farrow, had much more direct goals. “I want to change AT&T and Verizon. They charge too much money to use

phones. They are ripping me off.” The Occupy movement members call theirs a peaceful protest. Occupy Wall Street describes it as “using the revolutionary Arab Spring tactic to achieve our ends and encourage the use of nonviolence to maximize the safety of all participants.” Occupy Dallas has followed suit, and on Oct. 20 they protested in an Oak Cliff Wal-Mart. Stouder said that over two dozen protestors split into small groups and walked into Wal-Mart distributing flyers and hiding them within merchandise. The flyer stated the difference between how much money the CEO, Michael Duke, makes, which is $16,826 an hour, and an entry level employee, who receives $8.75 an hour. “Nobody would argue that someone running such a huge company shouldn’t receive appropriate compensation, which would certainly be more than an employee,” Porter said. “We are questioning how different the numbers are; it’s disproportionate.” Stouder said after the chanting and marching started in the store,

12 police cars and a police helicopter came to the scene. The police escorted the protestors outside, and kept everything under control while the protestors continued chanting outside. Occupy Dallas first set up camp in Pioneer Park, but have since moved to City Hall Park, directly in front of Dallas City Hall. The Occupy Dallas site has been given a 60-day no harassment deal from the city, which allows them to camp there, and on the 55th day, the movement can start negotiations with the city for more time. Participants, about 120 of them right now, have been setting up tents and sleeping in the park every night. According to Stouder, the number of protestors and visitors grows by about a dozen a day, and the number of overnight campers grows by about six people each day. Committees have been set up to provide different services for Occupy Dallas participants. The committees—facilitation, security, medical, food and water, community outreach, social services, administration, web support and media—are organized by volunteers. Most committees have their own tent, some even have generators to provide electricity. Everything is provided through donations and volunteer work. The only things missing are restrooms. The park is not zoned for restrooms, so port-a-potties are not an option. Protesters say it has been difficult for them to find public restrooms, but they have been getting by. Most people have sporadically left the site to go home and bathe. Some say they have only bathed a couple times in the three weeks of living at the Occupy Dallas site. There is a general assembly every night at 8 p.m. where the entire camp gathers to discuss and vote on topics at hand. One big decision made as a group was moving the site from Pioneer Park to City Hall Park.


POLITICS: Johnson faces stiff competition Continued from page 1

President Obama, asking the crowd not to “count [her] in that crowd.” “I’m proud to tell you the president has endorsed me for reelection,” she said. “I’ve earned it. I stand with him, I have whispered in his ear. And I’ll tell you something: He is one of the brightest human beings I have ever met.” She also questioned the priorities of Republicans, accusing them of making it their top priority to ensure Obama is a one-term president. “Many of the ideas of the jobs bill came from those who are fighting him the hardest,” she said. “They are doing whatever it takes to bring him down.” Johnson’s 2012 reelection campaign may present a greater challenge than past elections. Since her election in 1993, Johnson has not faced a substantial opponent. This year, State Rep. Barbara Mallory Caraway has announced she will challenge Johnson for her seat in the Democratic primary. Caraway is well liked in her roll as state representative, and may succeed in swaying some of Johnson’s core voters away from her. Rumors are also swirling as to whether Dallas lawyer Taj Clayton will put his hat in the ring, as he has been meeting with key local Democrats to assess mounting a campaign against Johnson. Clayton may officially announce his candidacy in November.

Spooky flicks you should be watching 3. ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’

5. ‘Paranormal Activity’

Two words: Child Catcher. That evil, pale weirdo who lures kids into his cart with the promise of candy has been forever burned into the nightmares of a generation. Especially to a generation growing up in the age where predators are on nearly every corner, this movie is terrifying. All our parents had no idea making us watch that movie, flying cars and all, would mess us up.

Things that you can’t see are always scarier then the things you can. Especially when one of those things is a demon that’s been terrorizing you since you were a kid. This movie is a cautionary tale: dumb boyfriends of girls possessed by demons will be killed. All you dumb boyfriends beware. If your girlfriend is possessed, do not try to provoke the devil; you will lose. He has been playing his game since before you were born and he’s had a whole lot more practice than you.

4. ‘The Exorcist’

6. ‘JAWS’

This is one of the movies we heard about from older siblings and parents. We like to think that kids are always off limits to real danger in scary movies. So it’s terrifying when the devil possesses one, turns her green and gives her a mean case of lunch explosion. It’s a horror classic that still makes people uneasy. This isn’t the first movie that the devil possessed some unlucky person, but it’s one of the scariest.

Have you ever been swimming in the ocean, felt something touch your foot and peed yourself in fear? You can thank “Jaws” for that. Almost everyone who has seen the movie looked at the water differently. It’s no wonder why the movie’s terrifying: the huge shark wants to eat you. And the only way to stop it is for Roy Scheider to blow its face off. Always remember: if someone says you need a bigger boat, get a bigger boat.


1. ‘The Strangers’ Someone is trying to kill you. There is no rhyme or reason, you have no idea who they are and there’s nothing you can do about it. That’s “The Strangers.” The thing that makes this movie so scary is the fact that things like that happen quite often, the most notorious of examples is the Manson murders of the Sixties. This is one of those movies that change the way you look at the neighborhood around you. Every person within a mile radius of your house become murderers, in your mind they are going to kill you for no reason and you can’t stop them.

2. ‘28 Days Later’ Made in 2003, this horror, scifi, thriller is a must-see. The monsters are not dead. The person chasing you through the deserted British streets, trying to eat your face is not some un-

dead hellspawn. The only cure for this disease is to wait for the ill to drop dead in 28 days. Contrary to popular belief

this is not a zombie movie. It is an outbreak movie. That being said, this outbreak is terrifying. The classic zombie swarm

sped up a couple hundred miles an hour and some awful British soldiers make this movie one to see, if you’re brave enough.


Dallas venues bring diverse mix of concerts to metroplex this month By NATALIE BLANKENSHIP A&E Editor

From Thanksgiving plans to studying for tests to getting those last papers in before the holiday, November can be a stressful month. However, Dallas has a list of diverse concert venues, from intimate rock at the Granada Theatre to big name bands at the Gexa Energy Pavilion to fun up-and-coming bands at the House of Blues. There seems to be plenty of music options to go around in this city. On Nov. 5 STS9 will play at the House of Blues. STS9 is a band that pairs electronic music with an unexpected mix of jazz, funk and hip-hop. A very experimental band, STS9 consistently delivers fun and funky beats, making it fun for even the electronic-opposed crowd. Also on Nov. 5 is Guns N’ Roses at the Gexa Energy Pavilion. Although the band isn’t exactly the same as it was back in 1985, it is predicted to be a blast from the past with a mindblowing, hard rock experience. Feist will take the stage on Nov. 8 at The Majestic Theatre. If the name Feist doesn’t ring a bell, perhaps one of her hit songs “1234” will. After breaking off from

Broken Social Scene, Feist won numerous awards for the 2008 Juno Awards in Calgary including Album of the Year and Artist of the Year. Concert goers can expect a large dose of Indie pop paired with some amazing vocals and maybe even some banjo-playing. On Nov. 10 the Palladium Ballroom presents Modest Mouse. Their last studio album,“We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank,” was released almost four years ago and some fans wonder when their next album will be released. Most widely known for their hit single “Float On,” the Palladium Ballroom will be filled with old songs and new, and beats

that will get the even the most timid concert-goer dancing. Headed to Dallas on Nov. 17 is SMU’s own Graham Colton Band. An Oklahoma City native, Graham Colton began by performing at local pubs and coffee shops around Dallas. Colton has toured with John Mayer, Counting Crows, Maroon 5, Dave Matthews Band and Kelly Clarkson. He’s best known for his hit song “Best Days,” which was featured on American Idol and Kyle XY. Nov. 19 brings our neighbors from the south, Nelo. These Austin natives will rock the House of Blues with

Since 1951

an energetic and interactive performance. Best labeled as alternative rock, Nelo released their second album, “Ordinary Scene” last year. Other concerts worth noting this month are Sting on Nov. 16 at Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie and Wilco on Nov. 29 at Music Hall at Fair Park.

Why do people still care about Donald Trump? Oh, Donald Trump. America’s favorite birther. Self-credited with heavy handing Obama into releasing his birth certificate, Donald Trump rode his moment of national glory to the end. Or at least, as far as it could go. And now he’s stuck on to the GOP presidential field like a barnacle. Though the public has answered the question of whether Trump matters with a resounding Jessica Huseman “no” he still keeps popping up in the news. In late September, Fox News released the results of a poll that indicated only 6 percent of voters would be more likely to vote for a candidate if Trump endorsed them. In fact, twice as many Republicans say they would be less likely to vote for someone if Trump endorsed them. But for some reason, all the candidates are scrambling to meet with him. Perry dined on a white table cloth with him, Romney hid from the press in order to snag a face to face with him and Bachmann had breakfast with him. It’s mind boggling. I’m going to continue to believe that the candidates just want his money (he is, after all, worth $2.9 billion), because somehow that makes me feel better than the alternative of them believing he is a legitimate person to glean advice and guidance from. But hey, who am I to judge? The candidates seem to be making quite a show of being seen with him, maybe he has some hidden knowledge that none of us are privy to. Bachmann even had him come on a tele-town hall to have a chat with her supporters. He stopped just short of endorsing her. “She’s a terrific person. She’s a terrific woman. She’s a smart woman,” Trump said of Bachmann. “She’s respected by everyone. She’s universally respected by the other candidates.” The truth of that statement is, and I’ll tread carefully here, a stretch at best. But in any case, it demonstrates how much weight Bachmann still puts in a man whose only backing for his fronted political gravitas is forcing an American citizen to show the world his birth certificate. Trump is still keeping the birther issue alive, by the way. In a recent interview with Piers Morgan, he alluded to the idea that the birth certificate Obama released might be a forgery and said that it was still undetermined as to whether he had been born in the hospital listed on his birth certificate. He also advocated that Rick Perry keep up the birther talk through the primary season. Whatever. But hey, should the candidates not persuade Trump to toss his oh-so-sought-after support their way, he still fancies a run himself. “If they pick someone who’s really not the right candidate, and the economy continues to do badly, then I will absolutely get in,” he said of the current GOP field to NBC. But he’ll run as an independent, and will invariably split of (even if only a few) points from the Republican candidate making it even more difficult for them to beat our smooth-talking president. Oh Trump. politics Editor

During the most recent presidential election seasons, a lot of the familiar election strategies have remained Brandon Bub consistent. People accuse each other of being flip-flops, or being too soft on terrorism, or not implementing policy to better the economy. But recently I’ve noticed a new trend that both baffles and frightens me: the glorification of ignorance. Herman Cain, for instance, points to “Obamacare” as an example of our laws being too long and convoluted and has said he would only sign short bills of three pages of length or less. Moreover, he’s also suggested building an electrified fence along the U.S.-Mexican border. Rick Perry has argued for an effective invasion of Mexico to combat the drug cartels there. And, as the New York Times so poignantly pointed out in Opinion Editor

a recent editorial, “Michele Bachmann and Ron Paul say they would forbid the Supreme Court from ruling on same-sex marriage, forgetting perhaps that presidents don’t actually get to do that.” I have to wonder at times if some of these candidates even know what a president is supposed to do or if they’ve read the Constitution that they would be charged with upholding by being elected to office. To think that by electing these people we would trust them with the launch codes for every one of our tactical nuclear weapons is terrifying to me when I’m not even sure some of them could find Pakistan on a map. What’s even scarier to me however is that so many of them seem to revel in this ignorance. In 2008 then-Sen. Obama was derided for being an out-of-touch Ivy League snob. To some he was simply another member of the “intelligentsia.” Essentially, the problem a lot of people had with the man was that he was too smart. Are we really in such a

position right now where the most effective political platform is being less intelligent than your competition? I don’t know about some people but when it comes to ideal qualities of an executive officer, I’d prefer for them to be smarter than the competition. I want a candidate who has a thorough understanding of both Keynesian and monetarist economics. I want a candidate who is well versed in constitutional law and the historical development of this nation. I want a candidate who can tell me both how we ended up in our current situation in the Middle East and how we ought to go about resolving our problems there. Most importantly, I want a candidate who can tell me the executive provisions of Article II of the United States Constitution. People like to criticize the president for “talking down” to the American people as if they wouldn’t understand what he’s talking about a lot of the time. Personally, I really don’t have a

problem with that. I know for a fact that United States foreign and domestic policy is infinitely more complex than 24-hour news networks might insist, and anyone who pretends that “simpler” policies like a 9-99 tax plan or a 20 percent flat tax are going to immediately solve all our problems are doing more of a disservice to us than the “condescending” leaders already in office. You wouldn’t take advice from a doctor without a medical license and you wouldn’t expect a person who failed out of law school to represent you in court. Why then do we offer so much praise to candidates who pride themselves on not knowing what they’re talking about? It baffles me, but then again, maybe I just need someone to “talk down” to me to explain it. Brandon Bub is a sophomore majoring in English and edits The Daily Campus opinion column.

School organizations: one size doesn’t fit all Before you read this article, I must warn you beforehand that this is the first time I’ve written for The Daily Goke Akinniranye Campus. No, this is the first time I’ve written for any school newspaper. Brandon Bub, the fabulous opinion editor, asked me to write an article out of the blue. I was surprised but excited about this opportunity. However, I became anxious when he told me I could write about anything I wanted to that concerns the campus. At first I wasn’t sure but after spending a few hours alone with my thoughts, I came up with a topic. The topic I chose was clubs and organizations on campus. School organizations, I believe, are essential to an institution. They allow incoming students to make relations and feel right at home. They also allow like-minded people to come together. Many of the organizations help the community at large, such as ONE headed by junior Contributor

Roza Essaw. Organizations also help one to build leadership skills. Senior Fred Leach said, “I think organizations…allow people to develop in other areas other than school that are very important like leadership, interpersonal skills and responsibility.” This is true and I understand the importance of organizations but I don’t believe Southern Methodist University has enough organizations. I think the amount of clubs is very limited. Yes, I know we have nearly 200 organizations and yes I know that we have various types of organizations, ranging from academic to multicultural, but do you believe that is enough to appease most students’ needs? I don’t think so. To me, many of the organizations appeal to very broad taste and ignore students with more specific tastes. I don’t blame the organizations, but I blame the process of creating an organization. Unlike most other universities, SMU seems to have strict rules and guidelines when it comes to creating a club. I know it can be very tedious and cumbersome and can take tolls on the student who is trying to create the organization.

One student I talked to said he felt the process was very political, and if the organization committee didn’t like you, they don’t even really give you a chance. SMU wants the organization to be beneficial to the campus. This is good and all but I think it’s very limiting. Some student organizations can be carefree, lax and just have the sole purpose of accommodating students with certain needs, tastes and wants. It doesn’t have to be helpful for the whole campus, but just for a certain part. This topic hits close to home because this was a reason I had a hard time adjusting because there were many clubs that did not seem to fit me. Fortunately, I decided to try a few organizations and after several weeks, I found my place on this campus. Alas, not many students are that lucky. I think SMU should be more flexible when it comes to creating organizations. In University of Texas at Austin, all you need is two people and $50. Here you have to get chartered , something that is usually a yearlong, laborious process. In the end, I doubt the strict rules and guidelines when it comes to creating clubs will


change anytime soon. It is something some students will have to deal with. “Students should try new organizations to broaden their horizons,” freshman Michael Wilburn said. “There are so many great chances that are out there. My advice is just try something interesting, and if you like it continue, if not don’t.” This is true, even though I don’t agree with the way clubs are created here. I still think students should try clubs they are at least remotely interested in. There are not clubs for everyone, but shunning them will not help any student in the long run. Student organizations are a way that students are groomed to become respected members of society and emerging leaders. Being an active member helps when you are applying for jobs post-graduation. My piece of advice is keep searching and hopefully you’ll find what you are looking for. Goke Akinniranye is a sophomore majoring in psychology and sociology with minors in business and human rights.

Tulsa sweeps SMU 38-7

Volleyball ends weekend with a win against Memphis Tigers By E’LYN TAYLOR Sports Editor

Associated Press

SMU’s Terrance Wilkerson tackles Tulsa’s Milton Howell (19) during the first half of a Conference USA NCAA college football game Saturday at Chapman Stadium in Tulsa, Okla., as Tulsa’s DeAundre Brown chases on the play.


SMU Mustangs lost to the Tulsa Hurricanes 38-7 in Tulsa on Saturday during a grueling game of defense for the Mustangs. This weekends game was a must win game for both teams as they were both in the hunt for a Conference USA Championship game. SMU is going home with a loss, and Tulsa will continue on the road to the championship. Zach Line rushed for a total 118 yards while Cole Beasley had 79 receiving yards. SMU quarterback JJ McDermott had four interceptions and five carries for negative 33 yards. All efforts by the SMU offense resulted in only one touchdown.

SMU defensive end Taylor Thompson had a forced fumble as well as a fumble recovery to help aid defensive efforts. On the other side of the field, Tulsa’s Willie Carter set career highs in receptions helping lead Tulsa to a victory to remain unspoiled in Conference USA play. Willie was targeted by Tulsa quarterback G.J. Kinne often collecting 13 catches for 173 yards. Tulsa scored first with a 22yard field goal in the first quarter by kicker Kevin Fitzpatrick. Tulsa managed to go up 10-0 before the end of the first with a 2-yard run into the end zone. Tulsa continued feeding their momentum when Kinne rushed 2-yards again for a score. They came calling again with

a 73-yard drive to make the score 24-0 going into the half. It wasn’t until the third quarter when SMU found themselves inside the end zone when running back Zach Line ran for 17 yards into the end zone, cutting Tulsa’s lead to 17 points. Tulsa sealed their win with a pair of touchdowns late in the third making the score 38-7. Neither teams scored in the fourth quarter. The Mustangs put up 265 yards total offense while Tulsa managed 451 total yards. With this loss, Tulsa keeps track with Houston and SMU will try for the Armed Forces or Hawaii Bowl.
