UPB shares office space after mistake Confusion in registration requires Board to seek new office space JEFFREY NYONI Campus Reporter

The Union Programming Board has shacked up with another student organization this semester after losing its office space last semester. UPB is sharing space with the Hispanic-American Student Organization, which resides in the Archie W. Dunham Conoco Phillips Student Leadership Center, U P B p r e s i d e n t Pa t r i c k

McSweeney said. The center is located in The Oklahoma Memorial Union. The organization reached out to UPB and is sharing some of its office space in the leadership center, McSweeney said. The two organizations have worked together in the past, he said, and they also have a few members involved in both organizations that helped make it happen.

McSweeney said he really appreciates what HASA has done and that this will help them move forward this year and encourage them to continue work with other student organizations. UPB activities will be better in the future if they work with other organizations on campus and support each other, he said. Last spring, UPB, one of the largest student organizations, lost it’s office space for the first time, The Daily reported on April 16. U P B’s o f f i c e r s f a i l e d to meet the application

deadline for an office space in the Archie W. Dunham Conoco Phillips Student Leadership Center, according to Daily archives.

The application is required by UOSA’s Code Annotated for organizations seeking office space. The organization appealed to the Graduate Student Senate to be allowed to file a late application, but the request was denied, according to Daily archives. UPB is a student organization whose mission is to provide diverse activities to students on campus, according to its website. The failure to file an application came out of confusion toward the end of the semester as the

organization was transitioning, McSweeney said. There was a lack of communications between UPB leadership, he said. The organization’s leaders were disappointed by the GSS decision to deny their late application McSweeney said, but they realized the mistake was on their part, and they understand the procedures moving forward.

‘Living Library’ exhibit opens Bizzell Memorial Library hosts dynamic display EMMA HAMBLEN Campus Reporter


The OU women’s basketball team poses for a picture in front of downtown Sydney, Australia. The team spent 10 days in Australia and played four exhibition games. The Sooners won all four games they played, winning by an average of 20 points per game.

Team plays four games in Australia Women’s basketball team gets early start to their season KEDRIC KITCHENS Sports Editor

The 2012-13 OU women’s basketball team got its first chance to play together when it played a series of exhibition games in Australia earlier this month. The Sooners spent 10 days there, leaving Aug. 7 and returning Aug. 18. They played four games in Australia against the Townsville Flames, Dandenong Rangers, Maitland All-Stars and Sydney University Flames. The Sooners swept the exhibitions, winning by

an average margin of 20 points. There were a lot of words used to describe the experience. So many in fact, that coach Sherri Coale said she had run out of adjectives. But the one description of the trip that remained constant was that it was a “once-in-a-lifetime” experience. It was a rare opportunity for the team to play games so early in the season, something senior guard Whitney Hand said will pay off dividends down the line. “I think we have a huge advantage going into the season,” Hand said. “We already have a week of practice under our belt. We’ve already played games, that’s a big deal.” This exhibition season allowed

the team to, in Coale’s words, “lay a strong foundation.” And she said that it made sure all her players, new and old, “understand what work looks like.” The biggest news of the

exhibition games was the debut of OU ’s three newest players: freshman guards Maddie Manning and Nicole Kornet and junior college transfer forward Portia Durrett. “It was good for us freshmen to get a preview of what’s coming before it does,” Manning said. The new players made an impact immediately, Coale said. And both Hand and junior guard Morgan Hook said it felt like the players had been with the team a long time. “It didn’t feel like it was their first couple of games with us,” Hook said. “It felt like we had been playing with them.”

and return to my first love of teaching and research.” Gaffin currently is on sabbatical in New Mexico through the fall semester, and after that, he will head to England for the spring semester, he said. “I am getting back to my research roots,” Gaffin said. Gaffin described his time as University College dean as one of the most rewarding times of his life “I have learned so much about the university and how it works, and I am proud of the things we have accomplished,” he said. “I also love the spirit and commitment of my colleagues in University College, and I will miss them greatly.” Gaffin said he is confident that Judice-Campbell will serve as a great interim dean. “She is the perfect person for the position,” he said.


Dr. Nicole J. Campbell, interim dean of University College, works at her desk in her new office Tuesday in Wagner Hall. Campbell was recently promoted to the position after former dean Doug Gaffin stepped down earlier this year.

“She has a great reputation, not only with other faculty members, but also with students, the staff, student affairs personnel and the higher administration.” As interim dean, JudiceCampbell said she will focus on ways to accommodate the increasing size of freshman classes.

“We are talking about ways to update the Summer Enrollment Program so that we can keep the personal attention emphasized in the current set up but also continue to meet the needs of an increasing freshmen class,” she said. She also said she wants to make more action tutoring

sessions available to students, as well as continue to develop a program to help students decide on majors. Judice-Campbell would not say if she hopes to stay in the position of dean permanently. Jeffrey Nyoni,

Currently, the GOP only requires states with early primaries to use this system. If all states used this system, no state would gain undue influence, and candidates with less initial star power would still have a chance of sticking through the primary process.

Oklahoma needs less strict laws regarding alcohol


his summer, I OPINION COLUMNIST celebrated my 21st birthday as many young adults do: in a bar, enjoying the company of my friends with an ice cold beer in my hand. While this could have been a long-awaited Nolan Kraszkiewicz first for me, I was studying Email@address abroad in Brussels at the time, so this was actually the fifth time I had partaken in as many days. Up until I turned 21, I could purchase and consume alcohol in nearly every other country in the world, save for the one in which I reside and pay taxes — America. I have been back for a few weeks now, and I already am fed up with the bureaucratic nonsense of Oklahoma’s alcohol policies. In order to get my choice of malted hop goodness (Moosehead Lager) — or any other alcoholic beverage — I have to stand by and watch my liberties be infringed upon. I am fed up with the numerous nuisances my fellow Oklahomans and I frankly are tired of enduring:

1. Enough with fake grocery store beer. Not only is the idea of low-point (less than 3.2 percent alcohol by weight) beer inconvenient, it is potentially hazardous. For inexperienced drinkers, confusing and mixing up low-point versus strong beer can lead to quicker than anticipated intoxication and potential alcohol poisoning. For responsible and experienced imbibers such as myself, this dilemma of low-point beer often results in increased trips to the restroom and not much enjoyment. Here in Norman, the water is probably a stronger intoxicant than the low-point beer at the grocery store.

2. God forbid I buy alcohol on a Sunday. I understand that certain liquor store owners may want to have that day for church or to spend with their families, but this should be purely voluntary. Last I checked, we lived under a capitalist economy. So following the free market model, if a person chooses to offer a legal product that is in demand, a restriction on the days when they can sell it is un-American. It’s quite ironic to see that we lead the nation in trying to prevent alcohol consumption, yet lead the nation in methamphetamine and opiate consumption. On a Sunday, if I wanted to, I could gamble, purchase a firearm and frequent a gentleman’s club — yet still be unable to patronize a liquor store. The calls for morality and ethics dictating this Sabbath prohibition are hypocritical and inconsistent. Simply put, if you do not want to partake, just stay home.

3. The arbitrary number 21 needs to go. When I turned 18, I could vote, buy a gun and engage in numerous other age-restrictive activities, unless they somehow involved alcohol. The fact that Americans are required to wait until the age of 21 to purchase and legally consume alcohol leads to unhealthy practices. I am not surprised that binge drinking is on the rise in both high school and college-aged students. It is not until rather late in our development that we get introduced to alcohol, and American’s delayed exposure to alcohol leads to dysfunctional interactions. In college towns, if the age were to be reduced to 18, in conjunction with an alcohol awareness program like we have here at OU, the environment for drinking would be more open. Consequently, an underage college student’s need to keep alcohol consumption underground and secretive would be virtually eliminated, effectively providing a safer drinking environment. I find it absurd that two summers ago, while in Istanbul, Turkey, it was both legal and easier for me to get alcohol than it is here and now in Oklahoma. When I took American history in elementary school, I thought I had learned that the 18th Amendment to the constitution, prohibition, had been repealed by the 21st Amendment in 1933. Apparently, Oklahoma failed to get the memo. Nolan Kraszkiewicz is a political science and religious studies senior.

HOROSCOPE By Bernice Bede Osol

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 29, 2012 Conditions in general look to be rather hopeful for you in the year ahead. Thus, if and when you should get into a fraught situation, know that Lady Luck is likely to be there, bringing help just in the nick of time. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It behooves you to follow your instincts when it comes to your business dealings. If nothing more, use these perceptions as support for your logical assessments. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Make it a point to take some of the slack out of a fading friendship that you haven’t had much time for lately. There are few things more valuable than good chums. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- The race is likely to be won by the smartest, not necessarily the swiftest, when it comes to a career matter. Be sure to use that thinking cap of yours, so you don’t trip over your own feet.

is putting off, have the courage to stick to your guns and do so. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- This is likely to be the day when you promised yourself you’d embark on carefully laid out plans. If you know each step you must take, there isn’t any reason why you shouldn’t succeed. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- By staying in the middle at all times, you’ll fare much better in your dealings with friends. If you’re smart, you won’t let it be known which side you really think is right. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Spare yourself from calling in an expensive repairman by exercising preventive maintenance. If you play it safe, you won’t be sorry. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Be sure to include an extremely introverted, shy friend in your plans. If the invitation doesn’t come from you, it isn’t likely to be issued at all, because no one else will think of it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If you’re alert, you have a good chance of learning something extremely important from a good friend. However, what’s said should be restricted to the parties involved.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The entire clan is likely to profit when the shopping duties are put in your hands. Your caring nature makes you very attentive to everyone’s needs and wants.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -Your determination in pursuing your objectives is impressive, but equally important is that others recognize your intentions and make it a point to get out of your way.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You should take advantage of the opportunity to clear the air with a friend when the opportunity presents itself. Don’t hesitate to talk it out in detail until both parties are satisfied.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- If you believe it is necessary to make a difficult decision that everyone else

‘Honey Boo Boo:’ No mistake

Bands wanted to play at inagural Boomerfest

Life & Arts Columnist

Campus Activities Council is accepting applications for bands Erica Laub

If you’re a fan of TLC’s “Toddlers and Tiaras,” you a l re a d y k n o w o f A l a n a Thompson — a 6-year-old girl with some serious ’tude. Because of her sassy, tell-all personality, Alana and her family have landed their own reality TV show, “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” To say that the Thompson family is close is an understatement. In the first episode, Alana introduces her family by their nicknames. Her sisters are called “Pumpkin,” “Chubbs” and “Chickadee” (who also is pregnant). Let’s not forget Honey Boo Boo’s father and the only male of the house, known as “Sugar Bear.” Yes, his children even call him by that name. Alana’s mother, June, is clearly the head of the family. She seems to be involved mostly in Alana’s pageant life, and the family sometimes will settle for less in order to fund Alana’s pageant hobby. In order to save money for pageants, Alana’s mother is an extreme couponer. I don’t think anyone loves to coupon more than June. In one episode, June said, “couponing is even better than sex.” If anything, June is doing a good thing for her family.

AT A GLANCE ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ Show time: 9 p.m. Wednesdays

Thanks to extreme couponing, the Thompson family will have more that enough toilet paper to outlast the zombie apocalypse. In the beginning, I was alarmed and frightened at the fact that the producers of the show would expose such embarrassing and revealing content on national TV. I’ve heard a lot of negative backlash concerning the show — mostly complaints that she

show was created to make fun of the Thompson family. The Thompson family’s behavior strays beyond the walls of what is socially acceptable, but they don’t care. If you follow the show, you’ll see that the family actually makes fun of themselves on several occasions. I’ve heard that most viewers either find this show shamefully entertaining or just plain unethical. In regards to the critics who claim this show is exploiting the Thompson family and only out to embarrass them, I would like to say that although the show is uncomfortable to watch, it exposes the realities of a certain population that truly exists in

America. June is aware of the embarrassment and negative attention she is exposing her “crazy redneck” family to. I might disagree with her parenting style or what she allows her children to do, but I do like that she says they are proud of their family, even if they do live a little, unglamorous life. The Thompsons don’t have much, and they take Alana’s pageant career too seriously. But they seem to be a happy family who appreciates what they have and one another.

The Campus Activities Council is hosting the Oklahoma Creativity Festival Sept. 27-29 and will have a music showcase for students. The inaugural festival will have a concert called Boomerfest, and students will get to vote for the bands they want to play. Of the bands that apply, the five or six bands with the most votes will get to perform at the festival. Many applications have been sent out to local student bands, but any student band can apply, Boomerfest producer Josiah Irwin said in an email. Students will get the chance to witness their classmates’ talents at the three-day festival, Irwin said. “The purpose of Oklahoma Creativity Festival is to inspire all forms of creativity and inspire a creative movement through interactive opportunities that unify the campus and community in Oklahoma,” Irwin said. People who attend the festival can interact with film, visual, performance and culinary art, engineering, education, entrepreneurship, fashion, architecture, literature and many other avenues of creativity, Irwin said. Once applications have been submitted, students will be able to vote for their favorite bands. Boomerfest will be at 8 p.m. Sept. 27 in the Oklahoma Memorial Union’s Meacham Auditorium.

Sooners ranked No. 4 in preseason poll The OU men’s crosscountry team received its highest preseason ranking in program history Wednesday, as the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Association (USTFCCA) ranked the Sooners No. 4 in its preseason poll. Last fall, the Sooners began the season ranked No. 6 and finished sixth at the NCAA National Championships and second at the Big 12 Championships. Six seniors return from last year’s squad, including last season’s transfers, former Maine runner Riley Masters and former Montana State runner Patrick Casey, and All-American Bill Kogel. OU begins the season Saturday at the Hurricane Cross Country Festival in Tulsa, where it finished second last season. Staff Reports


NUMBER ONE is nothing to celebrate.

This year, more than 163,000 people will die from lung cancer—making it America’s

NUMBER ONE cancer killer.

But new treatments offer hope. Join Lung Cancer Alliance in the fight against this disease.

TEAM: Players compete together for first time Down Under Continued from page 1 With the addition of the three new players, Coale said the team will be filled with talent. “Depth could be, and should be a strength of ours,” Coale said. Coale said there is a very little drop off between the first and second units and that that will push all of the players. “When we put in the backups, we don’t become dysfunctional,” Coale said. “There is a chance for 12 players to contribute.” The freshmen both said they played w e l l b u t a cknowledged they were a little nervous. “I think for SHERRI the most part COALE it went good, but there was a few freshmen moments from all of us,” Manning said. “It’s just so overwhelming at first,” Kornet said. “We literally did so much, so fast in preparing.” Having the young players creeping up on the established Sooners is good for the team, Coale said. “You never really know anything until you have to teach it to someone else,” Coale said. The new players know they have an opportunity to play but aren’t under any illusions they will just be given time. “I think it’s up to me and how much I want to work and how much everybody else wants to work,” Manning said. “We have a chance to be a great team, and it would be a privilege to play [significant minutes].”


Freshman guard Nicole Kornet poses with a boomerang purchased at Queen Victoria Market in Melbourne, Australia. The OU women’s basketball team was in Australia from Aug. 7-18. They played four exhibitions against Australian clubs, going 4-0, winning by an average margin of 20 points per game.

One thing they all have in common is their competitive nature. Coale said the new players are “insanely competitive,” which feeds the more experienced players and pushes them to play harder to keep their spots. According to Coale, there is a big difference between playing hard and competing. She said that everyone is expected to work hard but they have to want to compete, and her players are natural competitors. Kedric Kitchens, 760-902-5083

UP NEXT vs. Oklahoma Christian

AT A GLANCE Coach Sherri Coale on her new players “Portia Durrett is an instinctive offensive rebounder who goes after the ball.”



“Nicole Kornet is going to be an offensive juggernaut. She has a golden confidence, and she has never seen a shot she didn’t like. She may be a game changer for us.”
