Deadline approaching for organization funding Application available online eMMA HAMBleN Campus Reporter

Student organizations that missed the primary funding deadline last spring or were ineligible for primary funding have until tomorrow to apply for subsidiary funding through UOSA. The deadline to apply for subsidiary funding is tomorrow by 4 p.m.

T h e a p p l i c at i o n s a re re v i e w e d by t h e U O S A Budgetary Committee — which is made up of members from the Undergraduate Student Congress and Graduate Student Senate. The committee evaluates the budget requests and makes re c o m m e n d at i o n s t hat have to be passed by both the Undergraduate Student Congress and the Graduate Student Senate, and then approved by UOSA president, said Taylor Petersen,

Undergraduate Student Congress Ways and Means chairman. The amount of subsidiary funding available for UOSA to dispense fluctuates annually because the account is made up of money that student organizations did not spend the previous fiscal year, Petersen said. Therefore, if every student organization spends all of its money for the fiscal year, UOSA cannot provide subsidiary funding the following

fiscal year, he said. Only student organizations registered with Student A f f a i r s, l o c at e d o n t h e Norman campus and meet specific criteria can receive subsidiary funding, according to the UOSA Code annotated. Eligible student organizations who wish to apply must complete the Subsidiary Bu d g e t Ap p l i cat i o n o n UOSA’s website. While there is a deadline to apply for subsidiary funding, emergency allocations

are reviewed throughout the year, Petersen said. Emergency funding is extra money to help organizations if they are lacking funds. Usually no more than $400 is given out, Petersen said. One unique feature of emergency funding is that it can go to any student organization, even if it isn’t registered, he said. There are not strict requirements for applying and the application can be done online, he said. The Student Association of

Student participation in intramural sports has increased by 32 percent since 2010, according to the latest numbers for the 2011 academic year. About 11,500 students participated in intramurals last year compared to about 9,000 in 2010. Participation only increased by 3.6 percent the previous year. Larger incoming freshman classes and the benefits of intramural sports have led to the jump in participation, said Garry Armstrong, assistant director of fitness and recreation. More than 15,000 students register to participate in intramural sports every year, but not all students who sign up end up participating, Armstrong said. Greek students consume most of the sporting events, Armstrong said. Every year, sororities and fraternities

compete for trophies that are awarded by a point system based upon the houses’ performance in the intramural events. The fraternity and sorority with the most points at the end of the intramural season each receive a trophy. The large number of students in greek organizations allows greek houses to

participate in every sporting event to compete for the first place trophy, Armstrong said. Because most nongreek organizations aren’t as large, they cannot participate in the competition. Intramural sports at OU emerged from a junior varsity athletics program 85 years ago, according to the fitness and recreation website. Today, 40 sporting events ranging from four-on-four volleyball to table tennis offer students the chance to play recreationally. Flag football tends to involve the most students because of the large number of teams and people needed to play, Armstrong said. Intramural sports help students become more active through basketball, soccer, flag football and all the other sports offered and encourage students to be social by conversing with friends and opponents, Armstrong said. The activity also helps students decrease their stress level from academics. All Norman campus students who are full-time students are eligible to participate in intramural sporting events, according to the fitness and recreation website.

The organization’s leadership from last year forgot to apply for primary funding, Petersen said. While this does not happen frequently, usually there are a few organizations that forget to apply each year, he said. The Student Association of Bangladesh applied for $500 of emergency funds to help pay for its Bangladesh Night 2012 on Sept. 15, said Yousuf Mohammad, president and secondyear journalism doctoral student. The organization did not make any money off the event because it was offered free of charge. Undergraduate Student Congress approved $250 for Bangladesh Night 2012 at its Sept. 11 meeting, but it must be approved by the Graduate Student Senate at its 7 p.m. Sept. 30 meeting and signed by UOSA President Joe Sangirardi

before it is finalized and distributed to the organization, Petersen said. While emergency funding can help organizations at the last minute, Petersen said he recommends student organizations apply for subsidiary funding as emergency funds typically run out by March.

Our View: Other states’ voter ID laws disenfranchise

Oklahoma’s version of the voter ID requirement is unlikely to keep voters from the polls this November, but that doesn’t mean Sooners should ignore the voter ID law controversy. Oklahomans must guard against efforts to take this law further and follow in the footsteps of other states’ restrictive laws. Strict voter ID laws across the country have been accused of disenfranchising vulnerable populations. Of the 30 states with voter ID laws, 11 have the strict version, which requires a state-issued ID with a photograph. Non-strict laws, which accept a wider range of identification, can be found in 19 states. In Oklahoma, voters must bring an in-state driver’s license, a passport, another form of state-issued photo ID or a voter registration card. Registered voters can request a copy of lost registration cards from the Cleveland County Election Board, which take about a week to arrive, or receive a temporary voter ID from the board’s office up until (or even on) the day of the election. Unfortunately, other states haven’t made voting so easy. Strict versions of the law accept only a narrow list of photo identification, which many citizens lack. This requirement particularly targets elderly, poor, urban, minority and college-aged citizens. For example, Texas’ voter ID law — which was struck down in August The Our View is the majority but likely will see the Supreme opinion of Court before the fight is over — The Daily’s would have kept 600,000 citizens nine-member from voting because they lacked editorial board proper identification, according to the Justice Department. The state of Texas disagreed, putting the number at 167,724, but that is still far too many voters barred from the polls. The Justice Department also found that Hispanic registered voters were between 46.5 percent and 120 percent more likely than non-Hispanic voters to lack an acceptable ID. Given the expense of obtaining documents required for an ID and the physical inconvenience — 81 of Texas’ 254 counties do not have a working driver’s-license office — it is not simple to get one. Pennsylvania’s law, which faces a legal challenge, could disenfranchise the 1.6 million registered voters (20 percent) without state ID, according to data obtained by the Philadelphia City Paper. Nationally, more than 700,000 young minority voters could be kept from voting by these laws, according to a report from the nonpartisan votereducation organization, Black Youth Project. An estimated 25 percent of blacks, 20 percent of asians, 19 percent of Hispanics, 18 percent of the young and the elderly, and 15 percent of those

show it is literally more likely for you to die in a car accident on the way to the polls than to cast a decisive vote in the presidential election — especially in a state like Oklahoma that has zero chance of even resembling a “swing state.” What if your candidate wins? That might be the worst thing that could happen. Candidates don’t have a good track record of fulfilling promises. At this point, everything might seem hopeless — if you think political action is election-centric, what else is there? However, political action doesn’t end with political campaigns. Real change, change you can actually see with your own eyes, comes from direct action. You must personally engage the culture you want to change rather than relying on structurally stagnant hierarchical institutions to do it for you. Care about the environment? Do your part to educate others in your community about sustainability and work toward it, rather than relying on a president who disregarded environmental concerns to support the Keystone Pipeline. Care about self-defense? Take advantage of Oklahoma’s open carry laws. Learn how to safely use a firearm and avoid having to do so, rather than voting for a candidate who signed what the AP called “one of the toughest assault weapons laws in the country” while he was governor. Poverty? Organize groups like Food Not Bombs, which provides for victims of policies like inflation and the bailouts — policies devoted to privileging some at the group’s expense. Don’t be apathetic. Stop caring about the election. Jason Byas is a philosophy senior.

earning less than $35,000 lack photo ID, according to the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU’s School of law. Only 8 percent of white citizens lack ID. So what important goal justifies these laws despite the voters they may disenfranchise? Supporters of these laws — which were all, except Rhode Island’s, proposed by Republicans and passed by GOP majorities — argue they combat voter fraud. But voter ID laws only counter in-person fraud, and this kind of fraud simply isn’t happening. A comprehensive analysis of voter fraud carried out by News21, an investigative reporting project, revealed that only 10 cases of in-person voter fraud have been proven nationally since 2000. The study also found that 207 cases of other types of fraud existed for each in-person case. A quick look at the voting record of the populations most affected by these laws reveals a more realistic reason these laws enjoy such support: These groups largely vote Democrat. Either Republicans are willfully ignoring evidence or this is a concentrated effort to suppress the voting rights of those most likely to oppose the GOP. Many college students in states not so different from Oklahoma will be struggling to have their vote counted this November. Sooners must remain vigilant to prevent the same thing happening here. Editor’s Note: Daily Campus Editor Lindsey Ruta was a part of the News21 team that compiled the analysis.

COLUMN

he upcoming OPINION COLUMNIST presidential election will be the first large-scale test of Oklahoma’s new voter ID law. The law was passed by ballot initiative in 2010 after Gov. Brad Henry vetoed the legislation the Mark Brockway previous year. mark.d.brockway@ou.edu The measure requires a photo ID or voter registration card in order to cast a ballot. Anyone who does not have an ID on the day of the election can fill out a provisional ballot to be reviewed later. These laws, which are common across the country, are detrimental to the democratic process, largely ineffective and unconstitutional. By requiring identification of any sort to cast a ballot, lawmakers are placing yet another barrier for citizens to engage in the political process. Those who do not have an ID must take significantly more time and effort in order to acquire an ID than a person who already has one. This impact might seem small but a recent study by the non-partisan Black Youth Project showed that these laws could have a huge negative impact on young, minority voters. The recent study found that 700,000 voters in this demographic could be barred from participation. The Brennan Center at the New York University School of Law also found large numbers of voters disenfranchised by these laws. First, the report found that up to 10 percent of the eligible voter population, millions of voters, do not and will not have proper identification. They also found that those who are affected by ID laws are groups that have been historically barred from voting: minorities, young people and the elderly. The report goes on to say that voter ID laws are largely unnecessary. Voter fraud is simply not as much of a problem as proponents of these laws make it out to be. Because of Oklahoma’s process for checking voter eligibility after votes are cast, there is almost no substantial risk from ineligible voters. In the recent primary election, of the 91 voters who filled out provisional ID ballots, only 9 were found to be ineligible to vote. Those who were ineligible were not properly registered and would have been caught by normal vote checking. While Oklahoma’s laws differ from other states in providing many avenues to acquire an eligible form of voter identification, these processes are confusing and difficult to understand. These types of complex registration procedures further disenfranchise voters who are already unfamiliar with ID laws. Furthermore, voters must register to obtain a voter registration card 24 days before the election. Oklahoma, in an effort to make the process easier, has done the exact opposite. By making the process more convoluted and establishing deadlines far from the day of the election, Oklahoma is only creating even more barriers to election participation for the segment of the population that is already put off by the establishment of ID laws. Not only are these laws discriminatory and unnecessary, they are unconstitutional. The key court decision was the 2007 Crawford v. Marion County Election Board decision. In it, the Supreme Court upheld the right of states to determine voter ID laws. But this decision was in error. These ID laws violate the 24th amendment that prohibits the establishment of a poll tax. Poll taxes were implemented in southern states after minority groups were given the right to vote, in an effort to discourage poor minority citizens from voting. It is interesting to note that the Supreme Court actually upheld the constitutionality of these taxes, which then necessitated the 24th amendment. Because ID laws require voters to take extra steps to engage in voting, it costs those citizens extra money in gas, time off work and applications for ID. Voter ID laws essentially outsource the poll tax to get around federal law. These laws are like placing a polling location in the middle of nowhere so that only those with cars and gas money can reach them. Laws that serve no purpose, prevent large numbers of citizens from voting and are unconstitutional have no business in Oklahoma. Please join me in calling for an amendment to the state constitution banning voter ID laws. We must allow open, fair access to voting for all.

COLUMN

pathy is one of the OPINION COLUMNIST most destructive traits. Without involvement, one can fail to stop — or even perpetuate — the worst social ills imaginable. That’s why you should stay as uninvested as Jason Byas possible in the presidential jason.l.byas-1@ou.edu election. That may sound like a contradiction, but it’s an unavoidable conclusion once one recognizes what a waste of time, energy and resources it is to care which of two roughly indiscernible candidates wins. The political campaigns give participants the feeling of doing something. But this feeling fails to translate into anything remotely relevant to the causes they hold dear. When it’s over, the activist is exhausted and unable to take any action with real effects on the community. Of course, one must be first convinced that the two candidates are, in fact, “roughly indiscernible” and irrelevant to the causes one holds dear. But many who plan to vote for President Barack Obama or Mitt Romney should already see this. The former alienated liberals with an atrocious civil liberties record, expanded American military efforts and harsh prosecution of the drug war, among other issues. The latter alienated conservatives with endless politically convenient conversions, most notably in crafting the basis of the much-derided Affordable Care Act. Even if there were serious differences between the two, it’s hard to overstate the ineffectiveness of voting. Given the huge number of people your vote is up against, the odds

Take the necessary time in the year ahead to closely examine things that have proven to be unfulfilling. Until you rid yourself of your albatrosses, you are likely to remain way off track. There will be nothing to gain but more encumbrances. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Succumbing to instant gratification could be one of your biggest problems. You are likely to regret it if you spend more than you should on a whim of the moment. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Unless you want to turn your household into a camp with several warring factions, be careful not to bring up any controversial issues. You’ll only have yourself to blame if war breaks out. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Shelve, at least for the next few days, certain tasks you find to be distasteful. Any jobs you perform under a cloud will have to be redone in the near future. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -Generally, you are a rather prudent and cautious person when it comes to your financial affairs. Know now that the day could tempt you to take some unwise financial risks. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Don’t let your ego dominate your common sense in ways that make you feel that you’ll lose face if you aren’t No. 1 at all times. Overwhelming pride is self-defeating.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Although normally your intuition is exceptionally reliable and can be helpful in giving you great insight, pride could override it and lead you far astray. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It’s nice to do someone a favor, but be careful that you don’t unwittingly let it take money out of your pocket, unless, of course, the recipient is someone near and dear and you don’t mind doing so. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Being hasty or impulsive when putting plans together or deciding an important issue with another will weaken your position, not improve it. Give your ideas the time they deserve. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Taking on an assignment that is way over your head is not only downright foolish, it could be harmful. You might end up having a tough time crawling out of the hole you put yourself in.

Despite mass criticism, senior Landry Jones is one win away from tying Steve Davis as the winningest quarterback in Oklahoma history

FOOTBALL

Leave Landry alone @Mr_Hunter_: I hate Landry Jones... @mstanderfer: Damnit... top story on espn is titled “At a Loss: What’s Up With QB Landry Jones” @MattyIce_HAM: i need landry jones to go away...forever. @GSwaim: You’d rather have an alpha dog QB rather than one that in love and settled down. Landry Jones is no alpha dog by any stretch. #Sooners@whatchuwant52: Espn really needs to stop making a big deal out of Okalahoma and Landry Jones every year. They aren’t good. And haven’t been for awhile now @vincelasker: nah, just look for us fumbling the

ball all over the field and Landry Jones playing scared. Have fun!!! @JoshValentine3: The Experts on ESPNU is finally realizing what I’ve been saying for a couple years. Ryan Broyles made Landry Jones look like a 1st round QB. @jebadiea: cool. Does he play QB cause Landry Jones is the biggest joke in college

football! #EMAW #GBR @iAmSuccess_: This white girl in my class taking up for Landry jones smh.. @larryscowgirl: I’ve come to the conclusion that Landry Jones could be our 4th string #OkState @gregsnewby: Landry Jones! Wasn’t he supposed to be a front-runner for the Heisman??@PBizzel: How crappy Landry Jones is as big game QB! #SOONERNATION in pain.@fuba2966: How sad for Oklahoma fans..they get sucked in every year & then the Stoops meltdown kicks in. Landry Jones is weak link behind awful o-line. @oklabaseball: Landry Jones is the Tony Romo of college football @Sundevilmike11: As a non-biased observer,Landry Jones is overrated and using valuable time that OU could be dedicating to a new QB. @OldManGower54: If Landry Jones was in the NFL they wouldn’t be able to tell if he threw a pick or a completion. #ReplacementRefsSuck #NFL@Chiefslockers: It’d be just like the #Chiefs to FINALLY use a high draft pick on a quarterback and have it turn out to be Landry Jones. @vipstrippers: Every time Landry Jones drops back to pass, he drops back in the draft #sooners #NFL #oklahoma #CFB #ESPNCFB @DonicusTheGreat: I was officially better at the QB spot tonight than Landry Jones has been in the last year or so@TjustBeinT: Landry Jones From Oklahoma is Ass@KassidyKriege: “When his wife gets pregnant, I really hope Landry Jones doesn’t fumble the damn baby.” #Walker5quotes @BigBodyHayes: Landry Jones drives OU to 1yardline everyone screams put n Blake Bell. Bell fumbles snap everyone screams put in Sam Bradford? #wtf @jtchilcoat8: Interceptions are touchdowns!? Landry Jones just got a chubby@eospogito: Was just told I look like Landry Jones. I have no clue if that’s good or bad but I think I could hold onto the football better than him. @PhilCostantino: McGloin having better year than Landry Jones. After #OU loss & no production in new offense is Justin Brown regretting leaving #PSU? Maybe

Look at recruiting for drop in success, not QB

O

nce again, the Sooners have lost, and the fans have responded by pointing their unwavering fingers of blame at their favorite target: senior quarterback Landry Jones. Jones is not retreating from his criticism, however, taking the blame for the loss in the postgame press conference. To him, it’s nothing new. During the offseason, multiple fans openly pondered the question of whether it was good for Oklahoma that Landry was coming back for his senior season. Some fans said they wanted sophomore quarterback Blake Bell to have his shot in 2012. Statements like that are a sign of ignorance. Nothing against Bell, but Sooner fans should trust Stoops’ judgment on quarterbacks considering his track record with them: During his time, Sam Bradford and Jason White have won the Heisman, and Josh Heupel was a runner-up. Stoops knows a good quarterback when he sees one. Now Jones is not up to the standards of the previously mentioned quarterbacks, nor is he even a serious Heisman candidate — but he deserves his credit. He is the all-time passing leader in Sooner history after all, and, while that may be because he has been the starter for four years, it still is extraordinary considering he plays for one of the most historic programs in college football. The truth is, even though Jones is not

Bradford, OU doesn’t have anyone better. If Bell was better than Jones, then he would start instead. He’s not though, and it’s not because of some controversy or Stoops’ loyalty to Jones. It’s because he isn’t as good. Bell is going to be a good quarterback for OU, maybe even better than Jones, but not this year. His talent level and experience just aren’t what Jones has right now. In regards to Saturday, Jones shouldn’t be shouldering all the blame for the loss like he is. Yes, he is inconsistent, and, yes, he played disastrously. But offensively, Kansas State had its way with the Sooners’ defensive line, averaging five yards per carry. And even though he had a fumble that led to a touchdown, so did Bell. So quit pointing your finger at Jones and quit saying you want Bell to start, because it’s not going to fix anything. If the fans want to see a change, point your finger at our recruiting. The fact of the matter is OU just doesn’t have the talent it used to. In 2008, when Bradford won the Heisman, OU had an experienced offensive line, an incredible running threat in Murray and a red-zone safety net in Jermaine Gresham. Then in 2010, Jones had similar talent

Attempts: 1,735 Touchdowns: 98 Yards in a game: 505

with Ryan Broyles and DeMarco Murray, and, as a result, Oklahoma had a 12-win season. They also went on to win the Fiesta Bowl, giving OU its first BCS win since 2002. Currently, however, the Sooners just don’t have that same level of talent. Yeah, sure, Sterling Shepard might end up being a star, and you could say Stills is high caliber, but neither of them is on Broyles’ level yet. And as for senior running back Dominique Whaley and junior running back Damien Williams, they don’t compare to the likes of Murray or many of the other great running backs the Sooners have had. So OU fans, you have two options: Either lose faith in Stoops and scream for the replacement of Jones, or stand by the quarterback who stood by you for four years. Stand by the team captain, who has represented your university as good as anyone has on and off the field. Stand by Landry Jones, Oklahoma. Ross Stracke is a journalism sophomore.

Television’s favorite dysfunctional “Modern Family� returns to television tonight with more laughs than before.

Playlist and food guide for LIFE & ARTS COLUMNIST

Westlee Parsons westlee.a.parsons@ou.edu

F

all has begun, which marks the time for pumpkin everything, layers of clothing and scenery

that calls for musical accompaniment. For the first day of fall and the days to follow, here is a playlist of fallworthy tunes to play while roaming around campus in scarves and jeans watching the leaves turn. To go with your music, there is a guide to finding the best fall beverages and food to warm up with.

Beverages Pumpkin Latte — If you want a super sweet, whipped cream-topped concoction to start your fall-themed day, then Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte is for you. But, if something less sweet with no whip sounds better, Gray Owl Coffe has a pumpkin latte that doesn’t come with all the frills. Seasonal Beer — All of the Oktoberfest beers are starting to grace the shelves of the liquor stores and the taps at bars. Choctoberfest is on tap at McNellie’s: The Abner Ale House. For something a little more festive, Shipyard’s Pumpkinhead Ale, the perfect mix of pumpkin pie and good fall beer, is on the rotating handle at McNellie’s this month, as well. The Spirit Shop just received the first shipment of Southampton Publick House Pumpkin Ale on Wednesday, too. Cider — Woodchuck Hard Cider is a great gluten free alternative with the cinnamon and apple taste that is associated with the season. For those not wanting to have their cider hard, Starbucks has something: a Caramel Apple Spice drink, that is rich, indulgent and the perfect warmth on a chilly fall night.

Breakfast — Syrup. A Breakfast Boutique has sweet potato pancakes that come with marshmallow topping that is sure to mimic Thanksgiving sweet potato casserole with roasted marshmallows melted on top. For a breakfast that’s not so heavy, Juan Del Fuego has cinnamon and raisin oatmeal that is a great source of energy for sleepy autumn mornings. Lunch —The poultry and cranberry sandwich is going to be the best lunch option for fall flavors, reminding people of day after Thanksgiving leftovers. This sandwich can be found at locations like Panera Bread and McAlister’s Deli. However, it is likely this sandwich also will begin popping up at more locallyowned locations as the season goes on. Not a sandwich fan? Soup is a good, hearty lunch. The Mont has a classic French onion soup with melted cheese and croutons on top. The Earth CafÊ & Deli also has vegan chili every day that is healthy and great for warming up before afternoon classes. The cranberry trail salad from Penny Hill Deli & Subs also is a great seasonal item that has dried cranberries and nuts.

Fall Playlist “Autumn Sweater� by Yo La Tengo is great, not just because of the name but because the synthesizer is paired with hand drums, making it a hip fall song to stroll to. “I Want to Hold Your Hand� by T.V. Carpio from the “Across the Universe� soundtrack never will replace the original Beatles version, however, the scene in the movie shows football and love — the perfect fall cover. “Autumn in the Park� by Suburban Legends is something for the alternative fall listener with a mix of big band, ska and pop punk. “The Believer� by Common and featuring John Legend has to be one of the best leaf-crunching walking songs with catchy beats and melodic voices. “I Walk the Line� by Johnny Cash is a classic about going the distance for love and for some reason, maybe it’s the leaves or the cuddle-worthy weather, fall seems like the time to listen to songs like these. Most importantly, fall is here and winter is coming, and in Oklahoma, that could mean bitter winds and ice storms. So, make the most of it while the moderate to cool temperatures last with good music, seasonal food and beverages and the movie-esque scenery that is about to take hold of campus. Westlee Parsons is an English literature senior.

Dinner — For fall, dinner comfort food is a must. Local has meatloaf cupcakes that give a classic dish a modern twist with mushroom sauce and a goat cheese biscuit. However, the biggest selection of fall modern comfort food has to be from Blackbird Gastropub. Blackbird has macaroni and cheese that contains cheddar, Gorgonzola, nutmeg and cream just as an appetizer. The rest of the menu consists of beef and truffle oil shepherd’s pie, double-crust pulled chicken potpie and slow cooked pot roast. For some Italian fall comfort, Gaberino’s Homestyle Italian Restaurant has great seasonal specials like eggplant parmesan. The meatballs and marinara, which always is on the menu, also is like the meatloaf of Italy with the homey feeling it gives. Dessert — The Custard Factory has the best pumpkin frozen custard and adding piecrust pieces and peanut butter makes it the perfect after-dinner treat. For a dessert that isn’t as cold, try Crimson & Whipped Cream’s pumpkin whoopie pie or The Earth’s CafÊ & Deli’s ginger molasses cookies for the warm spices of the fall. Local also has an entire menu of fall desserts that includes things like butternut squash cheesecake and an overly indulgent study of chocolate that includes juniper chocolate cake, chocolate gelato, pistachio truffle and marshmallow and white chocolate mousse.
