Mustangs leave Thundering Herd in dust, winning 31-17 By EJ HOLLAND Sports Editor

The SMU Mustangs earned bowl eligibility after a 31-17 victory over Marshall on Saturday afternoon at Gerald J. Ford stadium. The win moves SMU to 6-5 overall and 5-2 in conference play. “We are still not where we want to be but these kids have bought we talk about all the time and that is team and playing for each other,” SMU head coach June Jones said. The Mustangs got on the board in their opening possession as quarterback Kyle Padron found wide receiver Bradley Haynes for an 8 yard touchdown. The score was set up by SMU freshman Kenneth Acker’s 62 yard kick return. Early in the second quarter Padron hooked up with wide receiver Aldrick Robinson on 42 yard touchdown strike to give the Mustangs a 14-0 lead. “We made some plays in the passing game,” Jones said. “Kyle [Padron] made a big throw and Aldrick [Robinson] made a big catch.” The Mustangs were not done lighting up the scoreboard as Padron scored his third touchdown of the day, this time on the ground.

SMUST presents fine dining Pi Beta Phi event picks By LAUREN SMART

Arts &Entertainment Editor

SMU Student Theatre (SMUST) is working overtime in the next couple of weeks. The students in the theater department are churning out project after project, and if Buffet Theatre is any indication, SMU is in for a treat. Buffet Theatre took place Sunday in the basement theater space in Meadows, and featured four plays written, directed and acted by students. The first play, “Passing Go” by Trigg Burrage, was about the game of Monopoly. From the minute Beverly Johnson took the stage and hopped into a wheelbarrow, the show was filled with an abundance of jokes. From Katherine Bourne’s portrayal of what she whines was a ‘simple thimble’ to Yevgeniya Kats’ Uncle

Pennybags, this show was a funny and light, like any good appetizer. “The Party Guest,” by Nathaniel French was up next on the menu, and it was definitely more of an entrée. The play opened on Josh Kumler playing a game of solitaire with his wife cheering him on, until a stranger interrupts them. The stranger believes he is a guest at a party, though the “hosts” ostensibly do not know him. French has crafted a story that presents the way that intrustions and strangers challenge the way that humans understand their own lives. The third course was “Pandemic Misunderstanding” by the maitre d’ of the evening, Jessica Andrewartha. This play was a clever comment on the way paranoia forces us apart, and the only solutions are to overcome this or live alone.

Ezra Bookman’s “Coffee Pot” served as dessert for the evening. The play was an extended metaphor in which Starbucks equaled marijuana. The play centered around four kids meeting up to drink some brew, only to have their party broken up by the host’s dad. The final scene wrapped up the play brilliantly with the father warning his kid that the reason Starbucks is banned is that eventually everyone will become addicted and feel like they have to drink it to be normal. Overall, the night was a success and half of the fun is watching your fellow students create. Keep an eye out for other upcoming SMUST events, including “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” on Dec. 3.

MBA program ranks 12 in BusinessWeek ranking By MEREDITH SHAMBURGER Senior Staff Writer

BusinessWeek recently ranked the SMU Cox School of Business fulltime MBA program 12th among a list of United States business schools. The ranking went up six spots from its 2008 ranking of 18th in the nation, putting the Cox School in the top 15

for all of its graduate programs. “Our students and recruiters have spoken, and the Cox School has again received glowing recognition,” Albert W. Niemi, Jr., dean of the Cox School, said in a press release. “Having a top-ranked MBA program begins with an outstanding faculty and offering admission to students with strong academic and professional

backgrounds. “However, regardless of the continual ebb and flow of the rankings, the Cox School continues to place the greatest emphasis on providing a classroom environment that allows our students to learn not just from our tremendous

PI BETA PHI: 2010 Mr. University chosen Black, African, or By TASHIKA VARMA Copy Editor

The red carpet rolled out in front of McFarlin Auditorium for 12 SMU men last Thursday. Mr. University is an annual male pageant hosted by Pi Beta Phi (Pi Phi) sorority. This year, all proceeds went to Heroes for Children, a non-profit organization that provides care for children with cancer, and Manheim’s Heart to Hearts, a program that helps raise money for the Micahel P. Fisher CICU at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Pi Phi’s Philanthropy Chair, Allison Chandler, loves putting together this event. “I think that it’s great because it

involves everyone on campus. We have twelve different organizations that participated,” Chandler said. “I think it’s a great way for us to raise money, especially this year, for something that was really close to our pledge sister’s heart since it is her dad’s organizations.” The 12 contestants included Patrick Probst (Mr. Sigma Phi Epsilon), Gavin Thomson (Mr. Pi Kappa Alpha), Evan Kasper (Mr. Beta Theta Pi), Ricky Townsend (Mr. Chi Omega), Juan Castillo (Mr. Sigma Lambda Beta), William Crouse (Mr. Kappa Alpha Theta), Corbin Swagerty (Mr. Gamma Phi Beta), Andrew Pinkowitz (Mr. Kappa Kappa Gamma), Brian Rose (Mr. Delta Delta Delta), Kyle Padron (Mr. Delta Gamma), Gerald Fawcett

(Mr. Phi Gamma Delta) and Austin Smith (Mr. Sigma Alpha Epsilon). The show consisted of four main parts. The first was the sportswear portion, where each participant was introduced to the audience with a description of his perfect date, an interesting fact and his favorite pickup line. The talent segment followed in which each candidate showcased his talent. Gerald Fawcett, the winner of Mr. University 2010, showed his skills through a remix of the theme song from “The Fresh Prince of Bellaire.” During the Q&A session, the 12 men show off their formal wear while answering questions from “Why do you want to be Mr. University?” to “What is one quality you cannot

tolerate in a woman?” which made them to think on the spot. The final part of the show was a choreographed dance that all the candidates performed together. Following their dance, there were guest performances by Sam Mansfield, Mr. University 2009, and Nick Cains, Mr. Congeniality 2009. Although Fawcett snagged the winning title, others won titles as well. The runner up was Rickey Townsend, and Mr. Congeniality went to Austin Smith. Also, Beta Theta Pi was recognized for raising the most money for Pi Phi’s causes. Pi Phi’s next philanthropy event, “Be and Angel,” will be Dec. 2 at 5 p.m. in the Atriums in Hughes-Trigg Student Center.

African American? By PAT TRAVER

Contributing Writer

There is a new minority organization on campus, and members of the one-month old African Student Association (ASA) say it is not to be confused with the Association of Black Students (ABS), founded in 1968. According to sophomore founders Aden Abiye of Ethiopia and Audrey Addo of Ghana, ASA’s main purpose is to educate people about the different cultures in Africa. “I believe there are about 28 countries in Africa,” Abiye said. “All of them have very different cultures. I’m from Ethiopia, and even in just that one country there are over 60 languages and over 60 different tribes, so even in Ethiopia everyone’s different.” Abiye said that when she came to SMU, she was very disappointed to find that there was no student organization for African students. “I joined ABS,” she said. “But it wasn’t what I expected it to be. It is an African American organization, but for me, it didn’t talk about my

culture. It was basically for black Americans. But for us newcomers, it’s totally different because we have different cultures.” For Abiye, “black American” refers to dark-skinned people whose families have lived in America for generations. ABS is what is called an umbrella organization for Sister Supporting Sisters (SSS) and Black Men Emerging (BME). The two organizations have been considering whether or not ASA should also fall under this umbrella. In trying to decide this, ABS President Courtney Kelly said that she spent a couple of weeks pondering over this question: What does it mean to be black, African or African American? “I was recently asked if I was African by someone that’s not American,” she said. “And I was like, ‘no I’m just black.’” She doesn’t see any reason why ASA should not fall under the ABS umbrella, but she does admit that they are completely different organizations.

ASA: New minority



organization starts on campus Tips for college students


said that the organization is an umbrella specifically for African American organizations. Since ABS is “geared towards everybody, regardless of race or color,” he said that the organization’s purpose was to be inclusive, not exclusive. ASA plans to focus on a different African country at their meetings, which are every other Thursday. They want to raise awareness about Africa because they said television portrays Africans just as stereotypically as they do black people in America. “I just think people need to be educated more,” said Zimbabwean Belinda Gopito. In Africa, “nobody lives in a hut. I don’t have a pet lion in my backyard. I didn’t grow up playing with monkeys. I live in a proper home.” In ASA’s second meeting on Oct. 28, members discussed the issue of defining race. Many people noted that the stereotypes people associate with certain races in America overpowers the actual cultures in many situations. “I feel like I’m not black,” said Gopito. “I wasn’t born here. I didn’t grow up here. I feel like when people say ‘black,’ they’re talking about the typical African American image that you see on TV. But I feel like I’m not that. I cannot relate to an African American, like a typical African American who was born here, grew

up here. We don’t have anything in common. I feel like I can’t even talk to them.” SMU freshman theater student and Dallas native Chinyere Oputa’s mother is from Arkansas, and her father is from Nigeria. Growing up in a multicultural home, she said that the African and African American cultures are not as different as people like Gopito might think “We are different,” Oputa said. “I’m not going to deny that. But we’re not as different as we think, as we expand it to be. They show these extreme stereotypes of African Americans on TV, and they do the same thing in America with Africans–they’ll show them in huts. I think the propaganda is dividing us more than we actually need to be divided.” ASA Treasurer Trisha St-Fleur is a freshman from south Florida. Her parents are from Haiti, but she was born and raised in America. Her skin is dark, but she has no African roots. “We are all different,” she said, “and that’s what separates us. But what saddens me is the fact that we can’t just all say ‘look, hey, I’m black.’ You know? We have to separate ourselves. We have to put these distinctions on ourselves.” To Gopito, Oputa and St-Fleur women, black is a blanket term referring to all people with dark skin who do not wish to be associated with Africa.

However, being ‘black’ means something different to other people. ASA PR Representative Samira Abderahman sees being ‘black’ as being a part of a black American culture. Her Ethiopian parents raised her in the Ethiopian culture, and even though she is considered an African American, she doesn’t really relate much to the American part. “Being black, honestly, I feel like I can’t speak about it much,” she said. “Because I’ve never really been 100 percent accepted within the black community—just because I am different, and it’s okay.” According to ABS President Kelly, “in the American sense of the term, ‘black’ refers to anyone with a darker pigment in their skin.” Sophomore Isake Slaughter from Odessa, Georgia thinks so, too. “My mother would always tell me that I am an American from African decent. So I always associated myself with African Americans.” Slaughter can see why [people] who were born in America but were raised in the culture of their African families would be considered African American, but she feels like that is not the kind of African American to whom she can relate. “I associated ‘black’ with dark skin,” she said. “I didn’t think ‘black’ was a culture.”

to start going green By LESLEY ISAACS Contributing Writer

Going green is something that is promoted via television, newspapers, magazines and awareness campaigns. Many people say they are going to make an effort to go green, but few actually accomplish it. While some may feel that they need a hybrid car or solar panels on their house, there are actually many ways people can go green that are easy and affordable. Sophia Bush and Ian Somerhalder are two celebrities who are making an effort to promote being environmentally friendly through social media in the hopes that they might inspire someone in a younger generation to make a change. College is a time when students are finding their way and living on their own for the first time. This is when they can start making a solid effort to make a change and go green. It can be overwhelming when someone first starts trying to go green, but there are a lot of simple ways to make a change.

Here are five ways to go green: 1. The three R’s: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle

Reduce the waste you generate. Be thrifty and try to buy green when you can. An easy way to do this is to remove your name from mailing lists of things you no longer want to receive or use electronic mail to receive bills. Reuse what you already have access to. Re-purpose items, like reusing empty bottles as flower vases, and buy used textbooks.

G i Guide 2010 an Advertising Guide of

Recycle anything you can to help make a difference. Look for recycling bins, recycle paper and recycle your old electronics.

2. Wash clothes in cold water

Even if you are not using your own washer, you can still help the environment by using cold water. This will allow the washer to use less energy, which will produce less CO2 that goes into the air.

3. Take notes on a laptop instead of a notebook

Why use a notebook when you can use your laptop? Many college professors even offer their lecture notes online. However, if you feel the need to Tweet or get on Facebook while trying to go green, a notebook may be a safer option.

4. Skip the plastic water bottle; get an eco-friendly bottle

It may be convenient to just grab a bottle of water on the go, but think about all of the energy it takes to transport the water and make that plastic bottle, not to mention that the bottle takes a very long time to biodegrade. Instead, buy a re-usable bottle and fill it with tap water. If you do not like tap water, buy a Brita filter for your faucet.

5. Turn off the lights behind you

Turning off the lights behind you can help lower electricity bills, even if you are not the one paying them, like in dorms. Use natural light whenever it is doable.

Latest Harry Potter aims to captivate audiences By ASHLEY WITHERS Staff Writer

REBECCA HANNA/The Daily Campus

Downtown Dallas kicked off Christmas festivities Saturday with the lighting of the Christmas tree in Pegasus Plaza in Main Street Garden and the unveiling of the window displays in the Neiman Marcus flagship store. The event included an outdoor market, live Christmas music, ornament making, cosmic cocktails at The Iron Cactus and twinkling lights galore. The tree and the store windows will be lit up every night from now until New Year’s.


Stars light up Granada By JORDAN MCCURDY Contributing Writer

As the sun set on Dallas on Saturday night, the indie-rock band from Canada, Stars, lit up the Granada. The lights dimmed, the crowd silenced and Torquil Campbell’s (vocalist) silhouette took the stage, melodica in hand. After the first few chords were struck, the stage became illuminated with intricate light schemes, effectively setting the scene for the atmospheric voices of both Campbell and Amy Millan. Despite Millan’s newly announced pregnancy, the duo fashioned an energy that filled the room and lured some band members into the lively crowd. Playing an even-handed mix of songs from both new and old albums, Stars kept the mood upbeat and ornamented the audience with their

iconic long-stemmed, white roses, sporadically throwing handfuls of pedals into the crowd. Halfway through their set of heavy melodies and profound lyrics, the lights dimmed again except this time, Campbell exited. A French horn and trombone replaced the previous sounds of the synth and hard drumbeats and the lyrics took on a euphoric persona as Millan began a solo show complete with a bubble machine. Millan’s nuanced voice and supporting classical intrumentals cast a tranquil blanket over the audience that lasted for the brevity of time she remained alone. Her second half soon rejoined her as, together, they belted out the last few songs; Campbell banging on his synth, and Millan jamming out on her electric guitar. With the release of their new

album in late June 2010, I became skeptical as to whether the band would be able to hold on to their unique sound much longer. Though a hit among most, “The Five Ghosts & The Séance” takes listeners on an alarming trip into pop- influenced choruses and predictable turns in melody, greatly differing from both “Set Yourself on Fire” and “In Our Bedroom After the War.” However, following last night’s show, Stars proved that they are capable of holding on to their distinguished sound, regardless of the track or album. Each performed song is given its own vocal component that only Campbell and Millan could possibly pull off, keeping a stronghold on their ability to distinguish themselves from the mainstream.

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1” made $330 million globally its opening weekend. Domestically, the “Deathly Hallows” made an estimated $125.1 million, the second biggest opening weekend for the Harry Potter series in North America. The film is well worth the millions and all of the hype. Directed by David Yates, the movie follows the book’s plotline closer than the others in the film series. The latest film is based on the first part of J.K. Rowling’s seventh and final “Harry Potter” novel. While this plot line and novel accuracy makes fans and avid readers happy, this script does not make any concessions for any viewers who have not read the books. The first novel in the series, “Harry Potter and the Sorceror’s Stone,” was released in 1998 in the U.S., and its Muggle fan base has grown exponentially over the past 12 years. An estimated 25 percent of viewers fell in the 18 to 34 years old demographic. These readers and viewers have grown up with the characters and are invested in the outcome. Gone are the days of Quidditch fever, House rivalries and the Yule ball. In the “Deathly Hallows,” The Dark Lord and his Death Eaters have taken over the Ministry of Magic—and no one is safe. No longer set at Hogwarts, in this latest installment Harry, Ron and Hermione are forced to take on the real world. The darkest Harry Potter film to date, the wizarding world hangs in the balance and it is up to the three friends to finish off The Dark Lord and save the day. The three are on a journey to finish

what Dumbledore started. They are out in search of the remaining “horcruxes,” evil talismans that contain pieces of Voldemort’s soul, but along the way they discover the three most powerful objects in the wizarding world: the deathly hallows. There is some comedic relief in the midst of this dark tale. When Ron, Hermione and Harry drink Polyjuice potion to sneak into the Ministry, Ron finds himself in a situation with someone else’s wife. A sweet scene between Harry and Hermione dancing around their tent in the woods gives the audience a chance to lighten up too. The movie brings back the cast from the previous installments. Ralph Fiennes reprises his role as Voldemort and Alan Rickman continues to shine as the sinister Snape. Newcomers to the cast, Bill Nighy (“Love Actually”) plays the Minister of Magic in the beginning of the movie and Rhys Ifans (“Notting Hill”) as Xenophilius Lovegood, the underground journalist and father

of the wonderfully strange Luna Lovegood. But the “Deathly Hallows” belongs to the trio: Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson. Their chemistry has grown immensely over the series and this movie allows the actors to go deeper into their characters and more fully develop their personas. The majority of the movie follows their journey to find the horcruxes and destroy them, but the main focus seems to be on the bond between them. The scary world they are forced to deal with puts their friendship to the test, and the sexual tension between Ron and Hermione thickens throughout the film. Though the film ends in the middle, the audience is not left without any sense of closure. “Part 1” ends after a huge emotional scene and a major plot twist, and Yates does a masterful job in tying it all together while still leaving the audience hanging. “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1” is now playing in all major theaters.

Thanksgiving has hidden health benefits By JOVIN LIM

Health and Fitness Editor

Thanksgiving is a reminder of American goodness; a family feast to epitomize importance of loved ones, football on televisions that represent a sport conceived entirely in America and the Black Friday sale to support our consumer-driven economy. But Thanksgiving also lurks the danger of overindulgence, and the dangerous, sugar and fat-saturated foods that cover the table. However, I am a total proponent of the classic Thanksgiving feast, because it’s only once a year. So, in order to quell your concerns over the potential growth of your girth, let me fill you in on the nutritional value of the traditional Turkeyday meal.

Turkey The turkey is the definition of Thanksgiving itself. With less than 12 percent of the recommended daily allowance, turkey is naturally low in saturated fat, and though saturated fats are essential for biological functions, hormone production and providing padding for our essential organs, we should be mindful of overindulging. There are about 32 grams of protein in a four ounce serving of turkey, and you could fulfill 65 percent of your recommended protein intake in just one serving. Another interesting fact is that turkey contains selenium, which is involved in the proper functioning of the thyroid and immune system. Selenium also eliminates cancer-friendly free

The potato is best known for its carbohydrate content, having been slandered during the height of the protein craze, though the starch content in potatoes is very similar to fiber. It offers protection By ASSOCIATED PRESS against colon A customer looks for a turkey for sale at Costco Wholesale in Mountain View, Calif., on Saturday in preparation for Thankscancer, lowers giving. (AP Photo/Paul Sakuma) cholesterol levels and radicals in the body, meaning that turkey is a Potato keeps you feeling fuller for longer. cancer-fighting food. The United Nations Food and Agricultural The potato is also nutrient-rich, as one Turkey is also a nutrient rich food, packed with Organization (FAO) estimates that the world medium-sized potato provides 45 percent of essential vitamins and nutrients. A serving has 36 production of potatoes in 2008 was nearly 314 your daily vitamin C requirements, 18 percent percent of your daily requirements of vitamin B3, million tons. of your daily potassium requirements, 10 The average consumption per global citizen percent of your daily vitamin B6 requirements. essential for the processing of fats in the body, and 27 percent of your recommended intake for B6, was about 73 pounds of potatoes a year. The skin of the potato does hold a bulk of folate, which helps maintain steady blood sugar levels. These high numbers are because potatoes magnesium, and potassium, so is actually good are commonly eaten around the world due to have your potato with the skin on.

Pumpkin As one of America’s most popular crop, over 1.5 billion pounds of pumpkins are produced each year with nearly nine percent of this crop being grown in Illinois. Pumpkins are also exclusively of North American origins, with seeds found in Mexico dating back to 7000 years ago. I acknowledge that a pumpkin pie is not exactly a true representation of the pumpkin, but pumpkins are also frequently utilized in a soup and baked dishes. Apart from the flesh of the pumpkin, even the seeds of the pumpkin are associated with a number of health benefits. Pumpkins are rich in carotene, which is a powerful antioxidant as well as antiinflammatory agent. It helps prevent the buildup of cholesterol on the arterial walls, which helps prevent strokes. Pumpkins are also known to reduce the risk of macular degeneration, a serious eye condition that usually results in blindness. The high level of zinc in a serving of pumpkins also promotes a healthy immune system and improves our bone density. So go ahead, and enjoy that heaping plate of food. The reason our ancestors consumed this type of food was because it provided an easily accessible source of nutrients, and were widely available for hunting in the forest and were resilient enough to grow in the frigid climate. Though these staples are humble in origins, they define the classic Thanksgiving, and I hope you’re all looking forward to it as I am.

Turkey pardoned by Obama will not live at Disney By ASSOCIATED PRESS The turkey President Barack Obama will pardon this year for Thanksgiving is going to George Washington’s house, not Mickey Mouse’s, after his life is spared. A Disneyland spokesman said Friday that after five years of taking turkeys, the park will no longer become home to the bird that the president pardons in an annual White House ceremony. Instead, after Obama pardons the turkey Wednesday, the fortunate fowl will live out the rest of its life at George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate in Virginia.

Presidents have been pardoning a turkey at Thanksgiving for years, but where the bird goes after its White House cameo has changed. For 15 years, until 2004, the birds went to a historic farm in Herndon, Va.: Frying Pan Farm Park. Disneyland took over in 2005 when the California park was celebrating its 50th anniversary. The pardoned turkey and an alternate — Marshmallow and Yam — got a police escort to the airport and flew first class to California. Marshmallow became the grand marshal of Disneyland’s Thanksgiving parade, and the sign above his float read “The Happiest Turkey on Earth.” The

turkeys then retired to a coop at the park’s Big Thunder Ranch. Florida’s Disney World got the birds from 2007, when they arrived on a United Airlines flight that was renamed “Turkey One.” The 21-week-old turkey being pardoned this year will arrive in Washington from California next week and stay at the W Hotel, just a block from the White House. Once at Mount Vernon, he’ll be driven to his pen in a horse-drawn carriage and be greeted with a trumpet fanfare. Emily Coleman Dibella, a spokeswoman for Mount Vernon, says it’s appropriate that the turkey will

don’t be left out in the cold d /

go to Washington’s home. In 1789, Washington became the first president to issue a Thanksgiving proclamation, and the Washingtons also raised and ate turkeys at Mount Vernon. Wild turkeys still roam the estate. The pardoned Tom will not, however, be put on permanent display at Mount Vernon, which prides itself on historical accuracy. The large white turkey the president will pardon is not like the smaller brown birds the Washingtons would have had. After Mount Vernon’s holiday festivities end Jan. 6, the turkey and his alternate will be cared for behind the scenes.

A look at tradition, upcoming royal marriage STAFF

Last Tuesday, Prince Charles of England officially announced the engagement and impending marriage of his eldest son William to his long-time girlfriend Kate Middleton. Pandemonium ensued in the press on both sides of the pond, in journals ranging from questionable to respectable. Of course, everyone wants to know about the ring, the dress, and the date. Rebecca Quinn But the more interesting questions are those being asked more quietly—what does a royal family look like in 2010, and what did we learn from the failed marriage of William’s parents Charles and Diana? Those with opinions have argued that William’s marriage to Middleton will bring some much-needed fresh air into the royal family, as she comes from the petit bourgeois and not the titled or privileged set that Diana did. But if shaking up the centuries-old institution requires upending those same centuries-old traditions, ought not the question be “Why do we need a monarchy?” instead of “How do we revive the one we have?” A “revival” of the monarchy is inherently problematic. Those in favor of the monarchy argue for it because of tradition. Tradition and monarchy are, in fact, inseparably intertwined. But the match of Middleton and William seems to defy almost every tradition imaginable. Besides the question of social class, there is the question of propriety. It is widely known that the couple has been permitted to cohabitate, something that would certainly never have been allowed for Diana and Charles in the 80s. Diana, in the great royal tradition, was also obliged to receive official certification of virginity in order to satisfy the question of lineage so important to a royal line. Yet I cannot imagine Kate agreeing to be subject to such an offensive, outmoded examination. Diana and Charles’ marriage seemed to be based on tradition from the start. They may not have been madly in love—Charles infamously muttered something about “whatever ‘in love’ really means” when he was asked if he was in love with his future bride—but they did follow tradition, for the most part. Diana produced male heirs, and Charles kept his requisite monarchical mistresses on the side. Such a “traditional” royal marriage in the 20th century inevitably ended in heartache and ultimately tragedy. Stifling tradition of that sort will not work for the future royal couple. But neither would complete modernity. There seems to be a gaping need to explore a balance between tradition and modernity, the tension between which drive the difficulty of such a marriage in the first place. But this again brings back our original dilemma—without tradition, is there really room for a monarchy at all? In a post-debtcrisis world, is a royal wedding really what we need now?

Papers can have more of a reward than an ‘A’ Scholarly journal provides students with opportunity to be published COMMENTARY

It has come to that moment in the semester when all of the assignments on the syllabus have clandestinely re-appeared, Jordan Johansen haunting every moment as their respective deadlines quickly approach. The due dates are only a few weeks, days, or even hours away. Many of these assignments are papers – some that we have been working on for the entire semester, and others that have just been assigned. Generally, these papers require intensive research, and a significant investment in time and energy. But, what about a reward? To what avail? What do we get out of them? My position is firmly in the affirmative for paper writing. Delving into a topic for class is a valuable experience in itself and enhances

one’s own education. However, papers are generally specific, with one person in the class focusing on his or her own particular topic, explored from a broader subject-area discussed in class. Each student learns something different from the class, yet there is rarely collaboration or sharing of this rich and diverse information. Therefore, given the time and effort invested in them, great papers should be commended and explored beyond your professor’s office. Each quality paper not shared devolves into a missed opportunity to enrich and enliven the scholarly conversations and academic environment at SMU. To address both the lack of compensation for outstanding essays and the disheartening concealed destiny of such masterpieces, there is now a new opportunity for SMU undergraduate students. The John G. Tower Center Undergraduate Journal for Political and International Studies (TCUJ) will provide a means through

which to share academic knowledge acquired inside and outside of classroom. This scholarly journal publishes academic papers and policy papers written by SMU undergraduate students on any subject regarding political or international affairs. As the director of publications of the Tower Center Student Forum and editor-in-chief of the TCUJ, I am pleased to announce the “Call for Papers” for the first edition of the journal and encourage any interested students to submit papers. This is a great opportunity for undergraduates to contribute to the academic conversation at SMU. This journal will allow for the SMU and Tower Center community to share in the research, discoveries, and achievements of SMU undergraduate students. Students from all schools and majors are encouraged to apply by submitting relevant papers and essays. Of course, this is also a lucrative opportunity for students. Almost

What’s the “queen of political gossip” up to now? STAFF

The marathon to the White House is about to begin. “But,” you say, “I’m still recovering from my midterm Nathaniel French hangover. John Boehner hasn’t even officially ascended to the House Speakership and the lame duck Congress hasn’t departed. It’s too soon. It’s too soon, dammit.” So goes life in the 24-hour celebrity political culture. The queen of political gossip stoked the fires of speculation in a pair of recent interviews. To ABC’s Barbara Walters and The New York

Times Magazine’s Robert Draper, Sarah Palin made the shocking revelation that she’s weighing a run in 2012. And just like that, the race is on. Never mind that Palin has proven time and again that she’s utterly unfit for the job. As John McCain’s running mate in 2008, she displayed a cavalier ignorance of major policy issues, leading top McCain strategist Steve Schmidt to remark, “She doesn’t know anything.” She resigned as governor of Alaska midway through her term, presumably because she realized how much more lucrative it is to be a pop celebrity with no real responsibilities. And of course, she’s been playing coy with the national media since the dismal fate of McCain’s 2008 campaign, constantly encouraging the will-she-or-won’t-she-

run gossip mill. If Palin decides to run, Republicans will have a spectacular opportunity. The Democratic machine and most of the national press have spent the last two years pounding the GOP, with a fair degree of accuracy, for its reflexive obstruction of the Obama agenda and sore lack of philosophical gravitas. Palin has been the most visible symbol of this intellectual malaise. If Republicans reject her in favor of a more qualified candidate, they will demonstrate their own seriousness. A number of crises plague this country, from two wars to exploding debt to a recession whose effects linger. In Barack Obama, Democrats have a brilliant, charismatic proponent of the proposed progressive solution. To

challenge him, Republicans should nominate an equally-talented upholder of the conservative tradition. Think of the debate that would ensue. America deserves no less. Palin said to Walters, “I’m looking at the lay of the land now, and…trying to figure that out, if it’s a good thing for the country, for the discourse…if it’s a good thing.” In these turbulent times, the best thing she could do for her country and her party would be to withdraw from public life. We need a leader, not a grandstander. Nathaniel French is a senior theater major. He can be reached for comment at

Mustangs advance to Sweet 16

Volleyball team beats Houston, sets record

By EJ HOLLAND Sports Editor

The No. 7 SMU men’s soccer team defeated No. 17 Creighton in a dramatic 5-3 penalty kick shoot out victory, after a 2-2 tie at the end of two overtime periods, Sunday night at Westcott Field. Both teams met up earlier in the season and SMU came away with a thrilling 3-2 overtime win. “Its very tough to win two games in a row against an opponent of that caliber,” SMU head coach Tim McClements said. “It’s a tribute to our guys and what it meant to them.” Creighton got on the board first in the 13th minute as forward Ethan Finlay sent the ball inside the near post, giving the Blue Jays the early 1-0 lead. Both teams played tight defense the rest of the first half and the score remained the same going into halftime. “Going into halftime we knew there was the quality in the room to score multiple goals if needed,” McClements said. Both teams continued physical play throughout the second half and the score stood still at 1-0 up until the 79th minute when freshman forward Juan Castillo saved the day for the Mustangs. Castillo made an excellent run toward the goal and defender Ian Kalis was able to make a great pass from the left side of the field. The ball sailed in the air and bounced

right off of Castillo’s head and off the crossbar past Creighton goalkeeper Brian Holt for the equalizer. “Ian [Kalis] delivered a terrific ball and I just put my head on it and it all worked out,” Castillo said. The tie was broken just two minutes later when Blue Jay midfielder Sergio Castillo sent a bullet into the back of the net after a rebound off a corner kick. The goal gave Creighton the lead with less than 10 minutes left in regulation, but the Mustangs never lost their composure. SMU midfielder Arthur Ivo fired a desperation shot from 30 yards out with 15 seconds left in the game and the improbable happened. The ball was deflected off a Creighton player and flew over Holt for the goal, sending the game into overtime. In the first overtime period, SMU midfielder Zach Barnes scored the apparent game winning goal, but an offsides call prevented the Mustangs from claiming victory. The teams moved on to the second overtime period where the Blue Jays fired eight shots compared to the Mustangs zero, but failed to score their third goal of the night. Creighton and SMU were forced into a penalty kick shootout to determine who would advance to the Sweet 16 of the

The SMU volleyball team recorded a record-setting 24th win of the season by defeating Conference USA rival Houston Friday, 3-2. The team has won seven straight contests in a season that will mark their third with 20-plus wins.. SMU took the early advantage in a back-and-forth match with a 25-19 win in the first game Houston rebounded to win the second and third games 25-21 and 25-22 respectively. The Mustangs came back to dominate the fourth game 25-8 and claimed the final game 15-8. “I’m just extremely proud of this team,” head coach Lisa Seifert said. “This win means a lot to me and it means a lot to the team. The way that we came back, from behind, was truly special.”

On offense the top kills came from senior outside hitter Kathryn Wilkerson with a career high of 22. Junior outside hitter Dana Powell tallied 17 kills, and junior outside hitter Jessica Oliver had 10 kills. On defense, significant contributions came from junior libero Sidney Stewart with a match high of 33 digs. Wilkerson notched 17 digs and Powell had 10 digs. This win marks the team’s 16th conference victory of the season. SMU will play its final regular season game at Tulsa at 2 p.m. on Saturday. Tulsa is currently 18-0, having recently swept Rice 3-0 on Nov. 19 and be will playing Houston in its next match. SMU and Tulsa are both in the running for first place in Conference USA.

quarter. Padron was intercepted by Marshall defensive back Rashad Jackson on the Mustangs’ ensuing possession. The Thundering Herd offense responded with a 32 yard touchdown pass from quarterback Brian Anderson to tight end CJ Crawford to cut the deficit to 14. SMU turned to their workhorse Line to get the offense rolling again. The sophomore running back did not disappoint. Line accounted for all 84 yards the Mustangs’ 9 play 84 yard scoring drive as the 3rd quarter came

to a close. Line’s 4 yard scamper into the end zone gave SMU a 31-14 lead heading into the 4th quarter. On the day, Line racked up 202 yards and 1 touchdown on 30 carries. The Thundering Herd also got things going on the ground as running back Essray Taliaferro dashed past the goal line for an 11 yard score. Marshall and SMU exchanged interceptions on their next drives as SMU defensive back Chris Banjo recorded his 2nd interception of the year and Jackson tallied his 2nd of the game. “We finally got momentum and

an interception but we threw it right back to them so that was unfortunate,” Jones said. “We made a couple of mistakes but fortunately they didn’t come back to haunt us.” The Thundering Herd offense threatened to score with less than two minutes left in the game but SMU defensive back Richard Crawford intercepted an Anderson pass to preserve the game for the Mustangs. Crawford finished the night with 6 tackles and 2 interceptions. The SMU defense was led by linebacker Pete Fleps who led the team in tackles with 8. The Mustangs pressured Anderson all day and had

a season high 5 sacks. SMU honored 11 seniors after their last career regular season home game. “This is a special group,” Jones said. “Four of our best players were in that 11 lineup in Fleps, Youri Yenga, Robinson, and Sterling Moore.” The Mustangs will close out the regular season against East Carolina on Friday Nov. 26 at p.m. in Greenville, North Carolina. If the Mustangs win their final game, they will win the division and represent the West in the Conference USA Championship game.

Men’s basketball jumps to 2-3 in season By NICOLE JACOBSEN Senior Staff Writer

The SMU men’s basketball team improved to 2-3 on the season after defeating Portland State and Lamar University but losing to UC Riverside as part of a threegame homestand at the SMU Invitational over the weekend in Moody Coliseum. The Mustangs capped off a two-win weekend with a 102-70 victory over Lamar University on Sunday night, giving SMU its first game to break the 100-point mark in nine years. “It was unbelievable how our guys executed, took care of the basketball… We actually played very well this weekend,” head coach Matt Doherty said. The last time SMU scored 100 points or more was in 2000 against Puerto Rico- Mayaguez. Senior Papa Dia finished the night with 28 points and 10 rebounds for his 14th career double-double, giving him the tournament’s MVP award. Robert Nyakundi was also named to the all-tournament team. Nyakundi, after scoring only six points in the team’s loss to UC Riverside Highlanders on Saturday, came back Sunday night to score a career-high 23 points. The Mustangs held the lead the entirety of the game, with SMU shooting an impressive 72 percent from the field, 60 percent in three’s and 86 percent from the line. SMU also set a new record in field goal percentage, beating the previous record of 69.4 percent set in 2005 against Savannah State. Sunday’s win was also the first time the Mustangs have had 20 assists in one game since 2008. The home team’s defense also stepped it up against the Highlanders holding Lamar to just 24-for-59 from the field. SMU’s 20-to-12 assist-to-turnover ratio was also an improvement over the team’s performance in their first

two losses. “I thought we were pretty locked in,” Doherty said about his team’s defense. “I was very concerned about Lamar’s transition game and they only got four transition points.” Despite Jeremiah Samirrippas’ four points in Sunday’s game, (the freshman scored 10 against Portland State and 15 against UC Riverside), Doherty was more impressed with the freshman’s presence at point guard. “I told him I don’t care how many points you score tonight,” Doherty said. “You ran the team and had seven assists and one turnover. That’s great point guard numbers. If you’re going to run a team, seven assists and one turn over are winning numbers. In the first game of the round-robin tournament, Dia led the Mustangs with 20 points over Portland State (31), as SMU clinched its first win of the season Friday afternoon, knocking off the Vikings 69-53. It was the sixth time in his career that Dia has scored 20 or mores points in a game. “The first one is always the sweetest,” Dia said. “It was really fun because it was the first win after two bad losses.” A slam-dunk by Dia gave the Mustangs their largest lead of the game at 23 points with 8:02 remaining in the second half, and for the first time all season SMU was able to maintain their lead for an entire game. In the teams’ first meeting between each other in school history, SMU closed out the first half up 39-27, before going on to finish the game shooting 47 percent from the field compared to 41 percent from the Vikings. SMU also out-rebounded the Vikings 30-to-26. “I thought they really responded as a mature, focused group would,” Doherty said. “I was really proud of their focus and energy from beginning to end.” Nyakudni excelled in the game against the Vikings, too, finishing the night with 19 points and ten rebounds

to give him his first career double-double in his three years at SMU. But Nyakundi struggled Saturday night against UC Riverside (2-3) with only six points and zero rebounds, as the Mustangs fell to the Highlander’s 69-73 in overtime. Up by two with just over two minutes remaining in regulation, SMU missed three shots before UC Riverside tied it at 57-57 with 25 seconds left. “We’re not talented enough to just show up and play poorly and expect to win,” Doherty said. “We’ve got to have a better focus and there were a couple guys that weren’t as focused as I’d like.” Despite Saturday’s loss, the Mustangs set new records for most three-pointers scored and attempted in a single game. Junior guard Rodney Clinkscales, in his best performance of his career, had 19 points and a 3-1 assist-to-turnover ratio. “He’s playing really, really well,” Doherty said of Clinkscales. “I’m very confident that when he’s shooting the basketball it’s going to go in the basket. He’s not afraid to take and make big shots.” SMU and UC Riverside’s Phil Martin traded shots in overtime, with Clinkscales scoring the first ten points for the Mustangs in extra time before Martin hit a jumper with 14 seconds left to put the Highlanders in the lead, 71-69. Two successful free throws from the opposing team and a missed three-pointer from Clinkscales drew TYLER WILLIAMS/ The Daily Campus the game to a close. “I don’t question our toughness,” Doherty said. “I think SMU Forward Justin Haynes goes for a layup againt Portland State Friday afternoon at Moody Coliseum. we played hard I just don’t think mentally we were sharp.” The Mustangs also improved significantly in their assist to turnover ratio during the weekend, surrendering at Moody Coliseum on Wednesday when they host only 26 turnovers 12 fewer than their first two games of Wayland Baptist at 7 p.m. SMU has nine non-league the season combined. games remaining before starting Conference USA play The Mustangs continue their five-game homestand on Jan. 8.

SMU goalkeeper Craig Hill made a magnificent save on Creighton’s next attempt which gave the Mustangs a huge advantage in the shootout. Hill finished the night with 11 saves. “In a shootout the odds are stacked against the goalie and to make a save puts your team in a position to win the game,” Hill said. “I got one and my teammates did the rest of the job.” With SMU up 4-3, Ivo had a chance to seal the Mustangs’ ticket to the third round and the junior did not disappoint. Ivo buried the ball in the back of the net and sent the SMU home crowd into a frenzy. “I have no words to describe it,” Ivo said. “It’s just an unbelievable feeling after fighting for so much and coming back.” The Mustangs were able to come away victorious despite being outshot 27-14 and losing the corner kick battle 15-3.
