F-word fallout continues Student political leaders say they don’t believe the recent partisanship will have a lasting effect on campus. By NINA EARNEST


UI students dance to music during the African and Afro-Cuban Dance Night in the Pappajohn Business Building on Thursday as part of Africa Week. There will also be a forum regarding recent events in Northern Africa and the Middle East at 6 p.m. today in 140 Schaeffer Hall.

A week of cultural learning Members from the Afro-Cuban drum ensemble performed at the event. By ALISON SULLIVAN

To the vibrant thump of the drums, Habibatu Timbo’s body jerked and swayed, her long tangerine skirt flying about her. The University of Iowa senior rocked her arms back and forth as if rocking a baby while dancing,Yesa, a type of dance dedicated to the feminine deity Orisha. Timbo was one of around 15 performers and 15 audience members participating in the African Afro-Cuban Dance Night, dancing to the beats and voices of Africa. The Thursday evening event was a part of Africa Week, a cele-

bration bringing members of the UI community together to learn about African culture. One member of the African Student Association said the atmosphere on campus is ripe for people to learn about other cultures. “I think one of the experiences of the university itself … is for us to be able to provide enlightenment and education to the general community about our background,” said UI graduate student Samuel Annan. Victoria Olango, one of the dancers said the importance of the event was exposing people to a different style of music and movement. SEE AFRICA, 3

Regents to weigh dorm-rate increases The increase would total $380 for double-occupancy students at the University of Iowa. By ARIANA WITT

University of Iowa students who plan to live in the residence halls during the next academic year could face the largest cost increase among the three state schools. UI officials are proposing a 5 percent increase in room and board for the 2011-12 academic year — from $7,662 to $8,042 for students living in double occupancy with full board. The state Board

will help cover the costs of several UI housing ventures, including off-campus leasing. “[The increase] is not necessarily a compromise,” he said. “We wanted to make sure it wasn’t a number that was too far out of line for students given the tuition increase that’s already been seen.” Last month, the regents approved 5 and 6 percent tuition increases for many of the UI students. Stange said the dorm rates represent an average

increase over the last 10 years, but they are higher than last year’s 4 percent increase.

A University of Iowa professor who sent a vulgar e-mail to members of the UI College Republicans has seen an outpouring of negative e-mails from students, graduates, and community members. UI anthropology/women’s studies Professor Ellen Lewin has received more than 370 e-mails in the last two days, expressing strong distaste for the message she sent Monday. The e-mails were obtained by The Daily Iowan through an open records request. In response to the College Republicans’ universitywide e-mail encouraging students to take part in “Conservative Coming Out Week,” Lewin sent an email saying, “FUCK YOU, REPUBLICANS.” In an e-mail exchange Lewin between Lewin and UI professor spokesman Tom Moore regarding a public records request for the messages, Lewin said, “Do you really want all these? They’re pretty ugly.” The disapproving e-mails ranged from swearword-riddled rants to detailed repudiations of Lewin’s comments. Many emails to Lewin included foul and sexually oriented slurs, some of which The Daily Iowan chose not to publish due to their offensive content. “You’re a cartoon. You make my 10-yearold grandson look like St. Augustine,” “You’re a terrible human being,” and “I’m glad you suffer,” were among the statements. A professor named Jacque from Florida said he was “appalled and ashamed” that she could have used such vulgar language toward students. “As a psychologist, I highly recommend you seek counseling for your poor impulse control and unresolved rage and hate for anyone with a different view as yours, that is pathological!” he wrote. However, Lewin also received some encouraging e-mails. One graduate student in the Anthropology Department supported Lewin, telling her he “completely and utterly [agrees] with every thing you said.” UI senior Chris Page, who served as Student Government director of sustainability this year, also supported Lewin, thanking her for sending the e-mails to the group. “Hopefully, some day in the future, the UI administration will see your point of view,” Page wrote. UI President Sally Mason also received hundreds of e-mails regarding the incident. Senders said they were “outraged” with Lewin’s comments. Some said they planned to pull support from the university, while others called for Lewin’s firing. At least one e-mailer said she no longer plans to send her daughter to the UI. Despite the harsh e-mails, Moore said he has not “received any report of a credible threat” to Lewin.

UI may partner for housing University Housing officials said they have been considering the private housing option for a little over a year. By ARIANA WITT

University of Iowa Housing officials are pursuing a public-private partnership to reconstruct two apartment complexes favored by graduate students. Officials are considering three options, including the partnership, constructing the buildings on their own, or simply not replacing the apartments. But a partnership with private companies would be the most cost-effective option, officials said. They will present the options to the state Board of Regents on April 28 in Ames. Interest in the apartments has dwindled over the years, and 76 units were damaged in the 2008 floods. But UI officials said they wanted to keep the two apartment complexes for graduate students. “I feel that the university should have some kind of commitment to graduate international students and families,” said Von Stange, the director of UI Housing. “If we didn’t, that would mean those students would have to fend

for themselves in the city.” Housing officials are in several transition periods with the university’s Hawkeye Court and Hawkeye Drive complexes. At the regents’ March meeting, they voted to approve demolishing the damaged apartments at Hawkeye Court. Regents also approved the demolition and abandonment of 92 Hawkeye Drive apartments. Stange said if UI officials attempted to rebuild the apartments on their own, the construction would be more costly and time-consuming than inviting in a private company. Under the agreement, the UI would own the land and contract with companies to build and manage the apartments. Richard Vedder, the director of the Center for College Affordability, said public-private partnerships between campus housing and businesses is becoming more common. “Private renovations, depending on the state, may offer more freedom than a state renovation alone,” he said.“Universities don’t have to be so concerned with bid-

ding, for example.” Previously, Stange said the lease for students at the Hawkeye complexes were in question, with officials planning to completely raze the apartments built in the 1960s. As of now, officials are involved in request for proposal talks with four companies, though Stange said nothing further with the companies has been decided at this point. “We’re really going to try to have a conversation with the regents and let them know where we are in the process and how we can complete the process,” Stange

said. “Overall, we’re looking to invest further and see what the regents have to say about things.” Rep. Mary Mascher, DIowa City, said she understands that yearround housing makes it difficult Mascher for universi- representative ties to keep up with maintenance on their own. “But they do a fairly good job with keeping up to date,” she said. “I don’t want prices to spike [for students]. I like to keep prices affordable.” Vedder said private companies can often help keep down the costs of renovating older campus buildings, adding several dorms at his university — Ohio University — were turned over to private companies when university officials could not cover the costs. “My general feeling is that schools are better at teaching and research, but they aren’t so good at things in the private sector like affordable housing.”

CORRECTION + CLARIFICATION In the April 21 article, “F-word e-mail sparks spat,” the DI incorrectly reported what UI Faculty Senate President Edwin Dove said he thought would happen to UI Professor Ellen Lewin after she sent a defamatory e-mail to the UI College Republicans. Dove said he knew Lewin would likely not get fired. The DI regrets the error. In the April 21 brief, “Hayek to seek another mayoral term; Bailey out,” the DI misreported Mayor Matt Hayek’s intentions. Hayek said he will seek a second term on the City Council. The DI regrets the error.

METRO Itoh sentencing set for today The sentencing hearing for a former University of Iowa assistant professor accused of abusing a former research assistant is scheduled for 11 a.m. today. Toshiki Itoh, 47, entered an Alford Plea to the charge of intent to commit sexual abuse last month. He was originally charged with third-degree sexual abuse. A jury found Itoh guilty of two counts of assault with intent to cause bodily injury, but it was hung on the sexual-abuse charge. Johnson County prosecutor Janet Lyness said the state is seeking a two-year suspended sentence, and Itoh, who is not a U.S. citizen, was advised these are deportable offenses. Itoh resigned his position from the UI in February after being on paid administrative leave. — by Hayley Bruce

Everson sentencing delayed The sentencing hearing for a former Hawkeye football player found guilty of simple assault has been delayed, according to court documents. Cedric Everson, 21, was scheduled to be sentenced at 9 a.m. today. Everson and former teammate Abe Satterfield, 22, were originally charged with second-degree sexual abuse after allegedly sexually assaulting a former Hawkeye athlete in a Hillcrest dorm room more than three years ago. Satterfield entered a plea bargain in exchange for his testimony against Everson; he was sentenced to a $625 fine, $326 in victim restitution, and two days in jail. Leon Spies, Everson’s attorney, said the sentencing hearing was postponed because of “financial issues” and a “personal family matter” regarding Everson. Spies also filed a motion to have Everson’s presence excused at the sentencing, which the judge denied. —by Hayley Bruce

Woman charged with lying to police Iowa City police have charged a local woman, allegeding that she lied to police about an assault.

Melody Williams, 32, 1131 Third Ave. Apt. 1, was charged Feb. 22 with filing a false police report to law enforcement, false imprisonment, and malicious prosecution. According to reports, Williams told police an unknown Latino male entered her apartment and attacked her while she was sleeping, and she later identified the man. The report said she told officials she had never met the man, did not know his name and wished to press charges. The investigation later revealed Williams had called the suspect, invited him over, and was waiting for him outside when he arrived, which was confirmed by an independent witness. Once the man arrived, Williams, her friend, and the visitor were allegedly involved in an altercation in her bedroom. When he tried to escape through a window, police said, Williams and her friend allegedly grabbed his clothing to keep him inside. The report said Williams admitted she had lied to police to prevent them from finding out she was a prostitute in the past. — by Hayley Bruce

The bastion of vinyl Record Collector is the sole surviving independent record store in Iowa City. By LUKE VOELZ

Kirk Walther gazed into the briefcase of a man known as Warren Peace. “It’s a little warped,” said Peace, plucking out a plasticwrapped parcel from within the leathery confines. “So I’ll give it to you for $5.” Walther had done business with the old man, who wore faded jeans and a dirty brown jacket, several times in the past. Most of the time his prices were too high. But that day, at a 1985 Chicago record convention, this offer seemed too good to pass up. “Deal,” said Walther and walked away with an original vinyl copy of the Jimmy Hendrix Experience’s Axis: Bold as Love. He later priced the album at more than $2,000. Walther, who owns the Record Collector, 116 S. Linn St., has made many shrewd deals to make profits in an industry with uncertain futures: FYE and Real Music have closed and left his shop as the only independent music vendor in the Iowa City area. Meanwhile, digital album sales in the United States rose 13 percent over 2010, and CD sales declined by the same amount, according to the Nielsen & Billboard’s 2010 Music Industry Report. Yet Walther remains unshaken by the shift toward downloading music, legal or illegal.

“I’ve never been bitter about it — it’s just the way it is,” he said. “You can’t blame kids for wanting to get music for free. I would probably have done it at that age, too.” Record Collector employee Luke Tweedy has a more cynical view of illegal downloading. “Just because you think you have the right to [illegal downloading], it’s still stealing,” he said. “It’s immoral, unethical, and there’s no honor in it. If I go to my buddy’s house, I wouldn’t steal his bread and pizza just because I’m hungry.” Digital albums did not exist for a young Walther. At age 7, he would travel to the Iowa City Younkers and buy 45s for 79 cents apiece. He opened Record Collector in 1982, consigning albums through a comic book store, Barfunkle’s, on Burlington Street. The store moved to Prentiss Street two years later and to Linn Street in 1995. Walther said his main concern these days is the financial stress on recording musicians. “They always get fucked over,” he said. Some artists are fighting back, he said, by cutting back on CD sales and just releasing vinyl records with coupons for digital downloads. He estimated a 20 percent increase in vinyl sales at Record Collector, thanks to more people becoming aware of records’

Record Collector, agrees, at partially, with least Walther’s theories. “[I buy vinyl] if I want to own something tangible, something that I can look at, like an artifact,” said the 28-year-old. “If I purchase from iTunes, it’s something new, perhaps an artist I’m not familiar with, so I don’t feel like I have to own the record.” The turbulent music-store industry has seen Iowa City through eight music stores since 1995, of which Record Collector is the sole survivor. Walther admits, although he’s glad to receive all of the town’s business, the rapid changes came as a shock. “It’s a bit weird being the only guy left,” he said.

Olango, who moved from Uganda to the United States when she was 3, said music and dance are a strong part of African culture. “It’s like a spiritual thing,” she said, her breath slightly heavy from her performance. “People dance in joy, people dance in sorrow, to connect with life itself.” The association was in charge of the week’s lineup of events, something that Annan said has happened in the past, but this year’s group rejuvenated the program. Annan said his own experiences last fall moving from Ghana to study at the UI helped him push for a successful event this year. “For an African coming here, the change can be very big,” he said, such as changes in the extremities in weather or the differences in daily greetings. And even though he has been in the United States for nearly a year, he is still learning about the contrasts in cultures. “For me, it’s very real how different the communities are,” Annan said.

“It’s not as stressful as it was when I first came.” Other events throughout the week included a discussion on stereotypes relating to African and African-American culture and Griot Night, wit poetry, and other forms of literature readings. “This is the vibrancy of the culture being shared with us through the international students, plus the American students who are interested in this kind of dance,” said UI senior Melissa Palma, who came to support a friend performing. Toward the end, the dancers took the hands of the dozen audience members, guiding them onto the floor and joining hands as they laughed, danced and moved together. “I definitely think it’s exciting seeing everyone so hungry for information about my culture,” Annan said.

METRO House Republicans seek to impeach justices Several Iowa House Republicans filed resolutions to impeach the remaining Iowa Supreme Court justices who were serving on the bench when the court allowed gay marriage in Iowa Thursday. Separate resolutions were filed for Chief Justice Mark Cady, and Justices Daryl Hecht, Brent

The declarations stem from disagreement with the justices’ ruling to allow gay marriage in the state in the spring of 2009.

Do any of the possible GOP nominees pose a challenge to President Obama in 2012? Yes


It’s too soon in the 2012 campaign to make an accurate prediction, but I’m going to toss in my hat: Those betting on the failure of the GOP shouldn’t wager the house. A New York Times/CBS News poll released Thursday found that Americans are more pessimistic about the economy and future than any time in the last two years. Combine this with some economists’ predictions that we’re headed into a double-dip recession and the current reality of a job-minimal recovery, and you get a recipe for discontent with the current occupant of the White House. For many voters, it would be nothing personal against Barack Obama; just an imprecise dissatisfaction that is easy to project onto his administration. Some candidates, such as Rep. Michele Bachmann or fake candidate Donald Trump, likely wouldn’t have enough broad appeal to capitalize on this rumbling sentiment. But some, including former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, might do well — particularly if Obama fails to turn out the youth vote. As possible Republican presidential contenders visit Iowa more and more frequently, there’s yet to be any substantial sign that Obama’s inspiring a similar fervor among his former base. And Republicans are diving into social media headfirst — perhaps to compensate for the advantage it seemed to offer Democrats in 2008 and to continue the success of online Tea Party organizing. The ridiculous hyperbole on both sides tends to obscure the field. Obama is not “the worst president ever,” but he’s also proven disappointing to — and may lose — the idealistic left, who would have liked to see Guantánamo finally closed, greater civil liberties, and troops home from foreign wars. (On this last: Boots on the ground in Libya would sink Obama’s re-election nearly surely.) While it may be a muddled mess right now, next year’s primaries are ripe for a challenger who energizes the base while snatching up a center electorate worried about the debt and the economy. For a challenger like Pawlenty, Mike Huckabee, or Mitt Romney, there’s a solid shot. They’ll have to step up their game, but they can do it. — Shay O’Reilly

Get ready for four more years. As the caucus season approaches, it is clear that no Republican challenger will be able to beat Barack Obama. The GOP’s candidates range from outrageous to impotent, and few of them even appeal to the entire caucus, let alone the broader electorate. There is no clear leader within the party, and Donald Trump is being turned on by party whales. A poor economy can doom a president’s re-election hopes, and there’s no question the economy under Obama has fared poorly. Whether or not it’s his fault, voters may try to take out their frustration by lashing out against the status quo. Republicans have tried to take ownership of this issue, screaming the words “jobkilling” until their faces turn blue, but they have failed to establish themselves as a clear superior choice. Obama has also failed to make himself an especially compelling leader. He has been noticeably silent for much of his first term on important issues and seems to prefer to let Congress squabble while he referees. This changed with his budget speech last Wednesday, which can be viewed as a presidential epiphany and the kickoff of Obama 2012. The president finally realized that relying on Congress to fix the budget was a lost cause, and that voters needed to see leadership on the issue from the White House. What better way for him to do that than through a speech. Talking in front of people is what Obama does best, and he’s a behemoth on the campaign trail even without the incumbency advantage he holds, an advantage that cannot be overstated. A sitting president seems far more legitimate than any challenger. He drives with a motorcade, flies in the world’s most recognizable airplane, and gets to use the Presidential Seal at speaking engagements. Transitioning into the role of campaigner-in-chief hugely tilts the playing field in Obama’s direction, and the pool of potential Republican challengers will not be able to knock him off that pedestal. — Will Mattessich Your turn.

Conservative Coming Out Week is discriminatory As someone who has long been offended by Conservative Coming Out Week, I stand in support of the message Professor Ellen Lewin was trying to convey in her e-mail response to the College Republicans on Wednesday. Though her choice of language was not appropriate, neither is the College Republicans’ shameless promotion of bigotry on our campus.

The College Republicans certainly have a right to express their views publicly and were well within their rights as a student organization to send an email to the entire university community. However, the UI also has a policy of nondiscrimination, which states: “The University of Iowa prohibits discrimination … on the basis of race, national origin, color, creed, religion, sex, age, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or associational preference.”

I’m sure that students on our campus who have come out as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender, or are in the process of doing so, feel that this insensitive appropriation of a phrase that is endowed with deep cultural and historical significance for the community is indeed discrimination. In 2007, the College Republicans promoted a game of “Catch an Illegal Immigrant” as a part of Conservative Coming Out Week. How could students who are non-U.S. citizens, or are perhaps perceived to be non-citizens, not feel

threatened walking around campus that day? There is a difference between expressing a political opinion and engaging in hate and discrimination. With Conservative Coming Out Week and its accompanying activities, the College Republicans have done the latter. A college campus is a place to explore differing opinions, ideologies, and cultures, but when these viewpoints espouse hate toward other students, staff, and faculty, we must draw the line.

Guest column

Respect at the UI SALLY MASON Universities have a unique distinction as safe havens for the free and open exchange of ideas among individuals from all walks of life. Not only is such communal civil dialogue and respect for different people and ideas encouraged on campuses nationwide, it is an essential part of fostering enlightenment and mutual understanding in a global society. It is for this reason that incidents such as what we’ve experienced at the University of Iowa this past week cannot go unaddressed or permitted to threaten the very core of our being. Although these wellpublicized events appear to be isolated and disparate in nature, involving a relatively small number of individuals in a large neighborhood that is a microcosm of society atlarge, they nonetheless tarnish our stature as a thoughtful, welcoming community that embraces diversity and encourages discourse that spans ideological, cultural, and philosophical spectrums. Senseless acts of racism, homophobia, religious or political intolerance, and any form of harassment have no place in a campus environment — even when hurled from a window or retorted through cyberspace. A lack of personal confrontation or physical harm makes these incidents no less deplorable and unacceptable. Campus communities are increasingly rare sanctuaries of civility that we work hard to protect and help thrive. Freedom of expression, multiculturalism, opposing viewpoints, and spirited debate about opposing viewpoints is what makes a truly great university and, in turn, an educated, thoughtful citizenry prepared to improve the world around them. Our core values include the embrace of diversity and respect. Because diversity, broadly defined, advances our mission of teaching, research, and service, the university is dedicated to an inclusive

community in which people of different cultural, national, personal, and academic backgrounds encounter one another in a spirit of cooperation, openness, and shared appreciation. We also strongly encourage student engagement in such discussions and support students acting on their viewpoints. Student organizations sometimes are formed along political lines and act on their political beliefs. Even if we personally disagree with those viewpoints, we must be respectful of those viewpoints in every way. Intolerant and disrespectful discord is not acceptable behavior. In short, we will not stand idle and allow members of our community to face verbal, physical, or emotional abuse. We are one community, and actions that denigrate an individual or group denigrate the entire university. We’ve handled these recent incidents swiftly and appropriately, investigating to determine the responsible parties. At least some of the behaviors exhibited may constitute a violation of university policy, and those found responsible may be subject to university sanctions and possible criminal charges. We stated earlier this week in response to these incidents that the University of Iowa is committed to maintaining an environment that recognizes the inherent worth and dignity of every person and fosters tolerance, sensitivity, understanding, and mutual respect. If we truly embrace this statement and wish to fulfill our obligation as a place where open and non-threatening discourse is allowed to flourish for the greater good, it is incumbent upon all of us to bear the responsibility for improving our campus climate and preventing thoughtless, impetuous, and threatening behavior from rearing its head again. To that end, it is our collective obligation to look within ourselves and among our peers to root out, condemn, and rid our community of hateful and intolerant attitudes. Sally Mason is the president of the University of Iowa.

Guest opinion

Proud to be a Republican at the University of Iowa For the second year in a row, the University of Iowa College Republicans hosted “Conservative Coming Out Week.” For those of you who have been holed up in the library studying for finals, here’s a quick recap. On Monday, the College Republicans sent out an approved e-mail to the entire university community and received more than 105 responses. This is normal for one of these emails; however, one response was quite different. It came from tenured UI Professor Ellen Lewin. Her message was, quite simply, “FUCK YOU, REPUBLICANS,” with her credentials listed below. Despite this hateful rhetoric, the next day we cosponsored a blood drive

with the University Democrats in the Burge Carnival Room. Lives were saved, party lines were crossed, and a good cause received some much-needed help. That same afternoon, Lewin sent two emails to the College Republicans that, at best, were failed attempts at an apology for her previous outburst. This matter went public Wednesday morning with a campuswide e-mail from President Sally Mason. As Mason stated, “Intolerant and disrespectful discord is not acceptable behavior.” That afternoon, despite the unseasonable cold weather, the College Republicans were on the Pentacrest handing out fake doctors’ notes, a play on events that

occurred during the protests in Madison, Wis., earlier this year. Thursday, the College Republicans played some light-hearted field games in Hubbard Park. After playing flag football and kickball, we all enjoyed hot dogs and hamburgers while discussing the events of the past week. Finally, today marks “Wear Red Day” in honor of the men and women serving our country. The unfortunate events of this week reaffirm the necessity of a “Conservative Coming Out Week” in Iowa City. The UI is not a welcome place for Republican views, especially as long as professors such as Lewin receive their $94,800 salary (plus bene-

fits) and use their university e-mail accounts to send hateful messages to college students with opinions different from theirs. We’re told when we come to college to express our ideals — that this is the first time in our lives where open discourse is encouraged. While it is expected that some of our more immature classmates would resort to hate speech and vulgarity in expressing their disagreement with a person’s views, I would never have imagined that that response would come from a tenured professor. Many have complained about the use of “coming out” in the title of the week. There is no patent placed upon the term, and making

general assumptions about our beliefs is off base. The goal of “Conservative Coming Out Week” was for Republicans to be honest with their community to who they are: Republicans. I believe we accomplished just that. Perhaps surprising to some, on April 26, we will host Fred Karger in 71 Schaeffer Hall at 9 p.m. for our last meeting of the school year. Karger, who is pursuing a run for president in 2012, has advised numerous Republican campaigns and is an active opponent of California’s Proposition 8. Karger will be the first openly gay man to pursue the office of the presidency — and yes, he is a Republican.

As always, this event is open to all faculty and students. The Republican spectrum is broad, and we will always embrace respectful discussion of the future of our party and the issues facing our nation. Throughout this week, we have faced much opposition, but that will never deter us from seeking an open, bipartisan discussion. It is easy to mischaracterize and disregard an opposing view while sitting at your computer, as Lewin did on Monday. It is much harder, however, to let civility rule and stand for what you believe in. Natalie Ginty is the chairwoman of the Iowa Federation of College Republicans.

The letter said his resignation is effective May 31. “I will always value the many academic opportunities provided to me through the university and will long relish the personal and professional relationships I have been privileged to

E-MAIL CONTINUED FROM 1 Moore also said it is far too early to speculate about any action the university may or may not take. “Those decisions would be considered confidential personnel matters,” he said. Moore sent an e-mail to Lewin assuring her the media attention and controversy would pass. Meanwhile, one expert said the polarizing response to the UI incident could be an indicator of a national lack of civil discourse. But student political leaders at the UI said they didn’t think it would have a lasting effect on communication among their organizations. Lewin apologized Wednesday for her remarks, saying they were prompted by what she saw as disrespect toward the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community, union workers, and animalrights activists. Republican and Democrat student leaders both voiced concern with the language of the message, despite their differing opinions on “Conservative Coming Out Week.” Nate Fiala, the president-elect of the UI Democrats, said the groups recognizes Lewin’s comments were “rash and inappropriate,” but he also said the College Republican’s “coming out” campaign rhetoric is offensive to some members of the Iowa City community.

enjoy,” wrote Hunninghake, a Coralville resident. Associate Provost for Faculty Tom Rice responded to the letter April 1, accepting Hunninghake’s resignation. “The University of Iowa accepts your resignation, and in light of it, we will postpone the hearing under the Ethics Policy,” Rice wrote in the letter. Both Rice and Moore declined to comment on the nature of the “hearing.” Rice deferred all comment on the resignation to Moore, who said he could not comment on what action

would have been taken if he did not resign, because it is a personnel issue. Leon Spies, Hunninghake’s attorney, said his client had no further comment. “I am absolutely certain Dr. Hunninghake does not want to make any statement at this time,” Spies said Thursday. The nature of the UI police’s investigation into Hunninghake came to light in Februrary after The Daily Iowan obtained Chicago police records. “We’re dealing with a gentleman who has devot-

ed his life and his professional skills to the institution that he loves, and this is horribly painful for him,” Spies said in Feburary. Ada Meloy, the general counsel for the American Council on Education, said Hunninghake’s decision to resign is not uncommon. “I cannot comment on the specifics of any situation, but it is not uncommon for someone who has been on paid leave to ultimately resign,” Meloy said. One day after he was placed on paid leave, Hunninghake traveled to a medical conference in Chicago.

While there, he faked a stabbing and robbery. According to documents obtained by the DI, Hunninghake told police he was approached by three men while jogging on the Riverwalk in Chicago. He said the men demanded his wallet and stabbed him three times. Once UI police received word of the stabbing incident, they became suspicious, and contacted Chicago police. After further interviews, investigation reports said there were “blatant” inconsistencies in the stories he told the two

departments, and Hunninghake was charged with the Class C felony of falsifying a report. He pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of disorderly conduct on Jan. 25. Hunninghake filed a petition to have the documents associated with the UI police investigation sealed on Dec. 23, 2010. They have never been released. A hearing regarding the petition has been set for June 13. Spies said Hunninghake’s resignation would not affect the hearing or the petition.

“Iowa is known for being civil,” he said. “We are known for having intelligent conversations.” In the aftermath of the controversy, the UI Democrats decided not to take part in the scheduled Red vs. Blue kickball and football games Thursday afternoon. Members of the conservative group, including President of the Iowa Federation of College Republicans Natalie Ginty, said they were “very disappointed” to miss out on the opportunity to meet with their peers. Fiala said the UI Democrats have decided to be “completely neutral” to the events on campus. But in general, leaders from the student political groups said the incident is not likely to halt interparty cooperation. Ginty said she and other members of the College Republicans have personal relationships with members of opposing political groups on campus. She said Lewin’s response to the student group is an example of one of few people with such outspoken rhetoric but not reflective of the entire party. “Those people do not help the nation go any further,” Ginty said. “They hinder any type of working together.” John Twillman, the chairman of the UI College Republicans, said he’s received negative e-mails but said he only wants more students to be active in politics when they are often apathetic.

“Anything we do, somebody is going to have a problem with it,” he said. Mason sent an e-mail to the university community Wednesday afternoon, supporting student engagement based on political lines. “Even if we personally disagree with those viewpoints, we must be respectful of those viewpoints in every way,” Mason wrote in the e-mail. “Intolerant and disrespectful discord is not acceptable behavior.” H. Brinton Milward, director of the National

Institute for Civil Discourse based at the University of Arizona, said Lewin’s remarks alone don’t qualify as civil or uncivil discourse. “Somebody basically said a profane word,” Milward said. “There is no real debate or discussion.” But the reaction that followed the incident could be reflective of a lack of civil discourse on the national scale, he said. “You can have strong opinions on any particular issue, but democracy works far better when you view

what other people say as legitimate whether you agree with them at all,” Milward said. Timothy Hagle, the College Republicans’ faculty adviser who defended the group following the release of Lewin’s e-mail, said part of the problem is the inflamed rhetoric is associated with both liberal and conservative parties. “We have to get out of that ‘who started it’ kind of thing,” he said. “We can disagree without being disagreeable.” It’s too early to tell how

Lewin’s comments will affect student political involvement on campus, Hagle said. Fiala said his acquaintances from different ideologies recognize the backlash as bad publicity for all involved. “I actually see people from all around the political spectrum not saying, ‘Yes, this is a good thing,’ ” Fiala said. “Because there are other ways to voice dissatisfaction with opposing political viewpoints.”

DORMS CONTINUED FROM 1 financial aid will fall short of the new room rates. “I have scholarships that I get, but they’re not going to be enough to cover me,” she said. “I don’t why it’s going up so much. It seems like the recession is hitting us pretty hard.” The rising cost of campus living is nothing new, said Richard Vedder, the director of the Center of College Affordability. He said that from 2000 to 2010, while housing prices on the open market were going up, housing prices associated with universities were rising by around four times as much. “This is a trend that’s been going on for a while,” Vedder said. “And at a time when the overall inflation rate is about 2 to 4 percent, universities tend to want to raise room and board more and more.” Vedder said that traditionally, increases are used to offset the upkeep costs of residential halls and dining and that it’s unusual for a university to want to use those fees for offcampus business, as UI officials plan to. “It’s my suspicion is that in times of tight budgets, some universities might be trying to use the room and board funds to cover things that have been covered by general university funds,” he said. At the UI, the Housing Department is self-funded. UI sophomore Jordan Mickle said he understands the potential increase. “With the student population on the rise, I’m sure it would be hard to house all the incoming freshmen and sophomores without asking for more money,” said Mickle, who lives in Mayflower. “But a lot of people don’t have that money and can’t afford it.” Rep. Mary Mascher, DIowa City, said she hopes increasing housing, tuition, book, and food costs don’t act as “another barrier” to keep students out of college or unable to complete a degree in four years.

METRO Faculty group seeks regent OK on peer review Officials for the University of Iowa Faculty Senate will ask the state Board of Regents to approve a newly revamped procedures for review of post-tenure faculty, said Faculty Senate President for the 2011-12 year Richard Fumerton. “A lot of the practices have already been in place,” he said. “What we’re trying to do is encode the processes. There’s been a terrific response from faculty. I think our policies are great, and I hope board will approve.” Among the most significant changes, is an agreement that allows for any faculty member to formally respond to a negative review in writing, Fumerton said, and the overall evaluation will be ranked according to seriousness. The process of the peer evaluations is also more formally outlined, making clearer hierarchy of consequences for a review, which are monitored by the provost office. Regents will vote on the changes at their meeting April 28. — by Ariana Witt

Dobyns to run for council University of Iowa Clinical Professor Rick Dobyns on Thursday announced his intention to run for an Iowa City City Council seat this fall. Dobyns aims to replace outgoing City Councilor Regenia Bailey, who does not plan to run for re-election. This won’t be Dobyns’ first shot at a council seat; his first run was in 2004. This time around, he said, he remains enthusiastic to serve the city and intends to focus on downtown businesses as well as investing in the surrounding neighborhoods and community. — by Alison Sullivan

Fry Fest to honor Gable Former wrestling coach Dan Gable will be honored at this year’s Fry Fest.

The day before the first football game, wrestling will take center stage at the third-annual Fry Fest in Coralville. Former Iowa wrestling head coach Dan Gable will headline the annual celebration of all things Hawkeye on Sept. 2, organizers announced today. Gable’s teams won 15 NCAA championships, including nine in a row from 1978-1986. At this year’s Fry Fest, he will participate in a takeoff of the 1950s television show “This is Your Life,” in which friends, family, and other guests will talk about Gable. Event organizers hope Gable will bring even more patrons to an event that has attracted an estimated 25,000 attendees in its first two years, said Josh Schamberger, the president of the Iowa City/Coralville Area Convention and Visitors Bureau. “If you’ve lived in the state more than five minutes, you’ve probably heard of Dan Gable,” Schamberger said. According to Fry Fest organizer and Coralville City Administrator Kelly Hayworth, it was Schamberger’s idea to involve Gable in the 2011 festival. And as soon as it was presented, the committee knew he was the man the members wanted as the focus for this year’s event. Hayworth said that as a former Iowa student who attended the UI during Gable’s career, he understood how popular Gable is locally and worldwide. “One of the things that was brought up today at the press conference was that Dan Gable is not only

World-renowned architect Steven Holl said he plans to incorporate the environment and plenty of natural lighting in the University of Iowa’s new Visual Arts Building. Holl spoke about his ideas for the building Thursday in front of a crowd of roughly 100 at the Pomerantz Center. The lights were dimmed as Holl’s projector displayed drawings, blueprints, and final products of the projects he’s completed around the globe — New York, Denmark, China, and Iowa City, where he designed the UI’s Art Building West. “This is one of my favorite projects,” he said as the projector displayed a photo of Art Building West before the 2008 flood. “My heart just sank to see the building empty.” Holl said he’s in the preliminary stages of designing the Visual Arts Building. “It’s definitely going to be about the interconnections of art,” he said. The final cost for the project is uncertain but will likely fall between $70 million and $80 million, said Rod Lehnertz, the UI director of Planning, Design, and Construction for UI Facilities Management. But the Federal Emergency Management Agency will absorb the bulk of the cost — up to 90 percent, depending on how much of the budget is deemed eligible under the agency’s guidelines. “At this point, it’s tough to determine what the eligible cost will be,” Lehnertz said, noting the that the UI

and FEMA still have to solve many issues regarding design, cost, and the original building. Lehnertz said he’s proud to have Holl on the case. “There are few architects worldwide that have the creativity Steve Holl has,” he said. UI officials have pinpointed a site northwest of Art Building West for the new building. The UI owns the property. UI Facilities Management senior architect Beverly Robalino laid out a very rough and tentative draft for building plans, which, she said, is subject to change. Robalino said she hopes to see construction begin in the winter of 2013 and for the building to open its

doors in the fall of 2016. “It all depends on just getting certain decisions made by FEMA and the university,” she said. Chris McVoy, one of Holl’s partners, said he is excited to begin designing the new UI building. “Light can be key in the creation of artworks,” said McVoy, and the group wants to focus on spatial energy and create an environmentally advanced product. “[Artists use] light in general as an inspiration.” Since the closure of the Art Building during the 2008 flood, UI students have been forced to make the journey out to the Studio Arts Building, 1375 Highway 1 W., a location many students find inconvenient and undesirable. “The lighting’s not very good,” said Lauren Hayes, a UI junior 3-D design major. “For art students who like to see something pretty that’s designed well, it’s not ideal.” Lehnertz said getting UI students out of the temporary location and back on campus is university officials’ “No. 1 priority.”

Earth Day Facts: • According to Wikipedia, which is the only source for verification that anyone should every use for anything ever, Earth Day was started by “Sen. Gaylord Nelson.” My follow-up research confirms that Nelson was indeed a U.S. senator, but I fail to find any evidence suggesting his asserted claim to the homosexual nobility. • Woodsy Owl, a forest ranger-like cartoon strigiform that exhorted children to “Give a hoot, don’t pollute” was the original mascot of Earth Day. His contemporary image has been updated to that of a Tshirt wearing, feathered cap sporting backpacker in thriftstore jeans. You can ask him about pollution, but he’d rather tell you about how good the music is he listens to. It’s by bands you’ve probably never heard of, though. Hey, do you like PBR? • One suggested way of celebrating Earth Day is to plant a tree (note: Arbor Day gets upset when you do this on Earth Day), sing or listen to Earth Day songs (which is like actually doing something good for the planet, but without any actual effort or positive result), or engage others in conversations about your environmental concerns (i.e., guilt-trip someone into using the recycling bin or buying some fluorescent light bulbs). • Earth Day is a great time to take account of and realize how much bottled water you may drink. If you drink more than one bottled water each week, please consider switching to Nalgene bottle, instead. Because all that plastic is responsible for horrors such as toxic chemicals, landfill persistence, and much of Lady Gaga’s wardrobe. — Brad Quinn wants to clarify that none of the above is intended to be a factual statement.

GOLF CONTINUED FROM 12 Hopfinger, Chris Brant, Barrett Kelpin, and George — are preparing to face similar conditions on Saturday in Columbus. “It’s always hard to play in these type of conditions, especially if you aren’t used to it,” India said. “The more we play in the cold weather — the wind and rain — the better we will be in the future in those kind of situ-

of the spring that the better a p i tch e r c an fi e l d her position, the harder it is for someone to hit a ball up the middle, and that’s good for us.” M a s s e y ’s s u c c e s s o n the field is good for more than tallying outs — it also brings the infield together. “The presence of the pitcher is important. As a pitcher, if you can step up and be a fielder, too, it just kind of gives off that vibe and aura to the

BASEBALL CONTINUED FROM 12 the conference tournament in Columbus, Ohio. Perhaps then, Iowa’s 2010 run provides encouragement for a somewhat gloomy outlook this season — the Hawkeyes are tied for last place. Head coach Jack Dahm’s squad will take on Michigan this weekend for a three-game series at Banks Field. “If you pull out the conference standings from last year, we’re in a similar situation,” Dahm said. “I think the biggest thing [this year] is that we had high expectations. We’ve had an opportunity to win all of our conference games, but we either haven’t been able to close it out or fall short by a couple of runs.”

Sports Columbus the same as he has all season, and he isn’t concerned about the weather. “In golf, we play outdoors; there are really no excuses,” he said. “Low score still wins, and you just have to find a way to get that, do your best, and keep grinding.” Another benefit of this tournament is that the Scarlet Course is very similar to the course the Hawkeyes will encounter next week when they travel to West Lafayette, Ind., for

the Big Ten championships. “Purdue and Ohio State are both long courses that test every part of your game,” India said. “I think if we play well this week, it will give us good confidence heading into Big Tens next week.” Though the tournament might be a chance for Iowa to prove it is the top team in the conference, the Hawkeyes didn’t seem to treat it that way. “Everyone feels pretty confident right now,”

being Iowa’s only home

championships. Iowa’s Jordan Mullen and Ethan Holmes are right behind Riley, ranking second and third in the Big Ten. Mullen ran against Riley at LSU three weekends ago but wasn’t pleased with the outcome. “I’m really looking forward to running against

him again because down at LSU I didn’t run so hot,” Mullen said. “Now that I think I’ve found my rhythm, I’d like to get up and see what I can do against him.” The Big Ten’s top-three 400-meter hurdlers will also be on display. Iowa’s D’Juan Richardson leads the conference after posting a season-best time of 51.12 last weekend at Auburn. Illinois’ Cody Wisslead holds the secondbest conference time, and Holmes’ time of 51.54 ranks third in the Big Ten. With the Musco meet

mitting, Musco will provide an opportunity to see where the entire group stands going into the final two guaranteed meets. “When it comes down to it, you can’t blame it on weather, some people did PR … It’d be nice to get good conditions, so we could actually see where we’re at,” said senior distance runner Lauren Hardesty. Anderson said he believes the Hawkeyes have had good successes throughout the duration of the season, but the trick is getting each athlete to compete to the best of her ability at the same meet. It’s nearly impossible.

“To find perfection in track and field is an unending quest, so to speak,” Anderson said. Other distance runners, such as junior captain Betsy Flood, agreed but said despite past results, they’ve been working hard and are hopeful about the upcoming weeks. “It would be really encouraging to run well,” she said. “It would give us excitement for the rest of the year.” Every event group is hoping for positive results. Anderson said the Hawkeyes are coming off a strong indoor season, are relatively healthy, and at the moment, their best ath-

letes have been performing at their best. It’s what seems to be a win-win weekend for Iowa. “I can’t stress the importance of this meet to our entire program. I think this is the second to last meet before the Big Ten championships, so you can never have enough highlights,” Anderson said. “Anything we do and do well will benefit us going forward. Anything we’re a little bit deficient in or fall short of, then the good news is we still have a few weeks to correct or fix that.”

o u s a n d i n t e n s e. H e r long blond ponytail s wa y s i n t h e w i n d behind her as she focuses on home plate. Her intensity pays off in her 2.90 ERA, and it has given her 12 wins with only six losses. Massey will start in one of the games against Michigan this weekend, and the Hawkeyes are positive she’ll continue to be successful. In a game against the N CA A’s top-ranked team, every out counts, and Massey is able to rack up great defensive plays for the Hawkeyes. Looper said she’s confident in her abilities and the rest of the team

is, too, not only in pitching strikes but also in grabbing short hops from the dirt and firing them to first base. “When the ball is hit back at Kayla, I have all the faith and confidence in her to be able to react a n d g r a b t h a t b a l l ,” c a t c h e r L i z Wa t k i n s said. “She has the utmost confidence about e v e r y t h i n g. W h e n s h e s t eps on t he m ound, I can just see it in her e y e s. I t ’s t h e wa y s h e carries herself — you know that she’s going to be successful, and that’s what we need.”

said. “We’re executing a lot better. Just a little more timely hitting, and we should be fine.” Recently, the Hawkeyes’ hitters have not been able to keep up with the squad’s starting pitching. Last weekend against Indiana, Iowa starters allowed 6 runs, but the offense scored just 3 runs in three games. Ace Jarred Hippen has been the subject of a lack of run support this year, although Friday games are usually low scoring. In college baseball, teams usually send their top pitchers out to the mound for Friday contests. When Hippen starts, the Hawkeyes have only been able to score 3.5 runs per game. The left-handed Hippen is third on the team in ERA, but is only 1-4 on the season. “We’re not scoring enough runs for [Hippen]

on Friday nights,” second baseman Mike McQuillan said. “That’s not acceptable. We need to get him runs, he’s our No. 1 pitcher, and we need to support him.” If Iowa wants to gain some ground in the Big Ten, this is the weekend to do so. Michigan (11-24, 4-5) lost a midweek game to lowly Eastern Michigan on Wednesday, and the Wolverines are last in both overall batting average and ERA in the Big Ten. The Hawkeyes should not only be able to win their three-game home series against Michigan this weekend, they could sweep their opponent. “We can’t worry about anyone else but ourselves,” Dahm said. “We have to be ready pitch to pitch and have fun out there. We’re going to try to control what we can control.”

Iowa has not won a Big Ten series this season — it has won only one game each against Michigan State, Illinois, and Indiana. Through the first nine games — a little more than a third of the way into the conference slate — the Hawkeyes are in the middle of the pack in almost all major statistical categories. As a team, Iowa is hitting .267 in league play, and its pitchers have combined for a 4.50 ERA. “Compared with [last year], we’ve played a lot better baseball this season,” senior Trevor Willis

Kelpin said “I don’t think we’re going to put too much pressure on ourselves.”

Crunch time for Hawks With the Big Ten championships looming next weekend, Iowa will try to give itself a higher seed in its final contests of the regular season. BY BEN ROSS

This weekend marks the end of the regular season before the Big Ten championships for the men’s tennis team. No. 66 Iowa, (8-10, 26) will close out the season with home matches against No. 71 Wisconsin, (10-11, 44) at 3 p.m. today and No. 23 Minnesota (15-4, 6-2) at noon April 24. Both matches will be played at the Hawkeye Tennis & Recreation Complex. Iowa faced both opponents last year in Iowa City, falling to both, 5-2. These matches will be crucial in Kauss determining senior not only who Iowa will play next weekend in Madison, Wis., at the Big Ten championships but also to see if the squad will qualify for the NCAA Tournament. Will Vasos doesn’t need to be reminded about the importance of these matches. “These matches are big in the sense of who we’ll face in the first round,” he said. “How we play will give us confidence into the postseason. These are huge matches.” In the rankings, Wisconsin has the No. 55 singles player

Women’s tennis goes on the road Two road matches are all that stands between the Iowa women’s tennis team and the Big Ten Tournament. This weekend, the Hawkeyes will take on Wisconsin at noon on Saturday at the Nielsen Tennis Stadium, and Minnesota on April 24. Iowa will try to improve on its 613 record (3-5 Big Ten). “[This weekend is] so important for us, because it determines what seed we will be in the tournament,” junior Sonja Molnar said. “The higher the seed, the better.” The Hawkeyes are tied with Wisconsin for the sixth seed. Each

in the nation in Marek Michalicka. Minnesota boasts No. 100 singles player Tobias Wernet and the No. 88 doubles tandem of Sebastian Gallego and Phillip Arndt. The April 24 match also marks Senior Day for Austen Kauss and Nikita Zotov. While one might think stepping on the court for the last time as a Hawkeye may be an emotional experience, Kauss says the thought hasn’t crossed his mind. “I haven’t thought of the fact that it will be my last home match,” the Overland Park, Kan., native said. “I need to focus on the match, focus on what I need to do to win and help the team. I will not focus on the fact that it’s my final match at Iowa.” Iowa has had a tough time rebounding after losses this season, and the Hawkeyes are riding a fourmatch losing streak. Last weekend, Iowa traveled to Michigan to take on the Wolverines, but got flustered early and was never able to build a comeback. Sophomore Garret Dunn said last weekend’s road trip stings a little, but he also knows it’s important to have a short memory. “We had some tough losses last weekend,” he said. “We will approach this as any other Big Ten match, though. We need to stay focused and finish the season out strong.” Kauss said he plans on saying some words to his team — hopefully inspiring — before he steps on the court one last time. “It’s going to have to be a group effort,” he said. “These are two pretty good teams; everyone needs to do well in doubles and singles. There hasn’t been a match this year where everybody has played well as a team. We can definitely win; we just need to work together.”

squad still has two matches to play. Winning at Wisconsin may be a difficult task for Iowa because the Molnar Badgers (12-10 junior overall, 3-5 Big Ten) have been almost unbeatable at home this season. Wisconsin is 9-1 in Madison, its lone loss coming to No. 8 Michigan. Iowa is 3-8 on the road this season. The Hawkeyes will head to Minneapolis on April 24 for a noon matchup with the Golden Gophers (5-15 overall, 1-7 Big Ten) at the Baseline Tennis Center. — by Nick Szafranski

The Iowa men’s track and field team will host the 12thannual Musco Twilight meet Saturday at the Cretzmeyer Track. The Hawkeyes will entertain athletes from eight other schools, including Drake, Illinois, Iowa State, Minnesota, and Northern Iowa. While the meet is slated to start at 2 p.m. with the men’s discus, the finals for the track events are scheduled to take place at night under mobile Musco lighting that will be brought in specifically for the meet. Iowa head coach Larry Wieczorek said his main focus will

be on his athletes’ performance, but the meet provides some special opportunities for him as a coach. “It’s a chance to show off the team with the lights and show off the sport,” he said. “I’m trying to show off college track and field as a good spectator sport and make our athletes stars for the night. I want people to see that track and field is fun. “I’ve had fans stop me on the

street and say ‘Hey, we were at the Musco meet. We really had a lot of fun there.’ That’s what I want.” Wieczorek will have plenty of stars competing for his squad at the meet. Nine Hawkeyes rank in the top-five in 10 events in the Big Ten. Additionally, the Black and Gold own the second-fastest 4x100-meter relay time and the third-fastest 4x400-meter relay time in the conference. Troy Doris is set to make his outdoor début for Iowa in the triple jump on Saturday. Doris won the triple jump at the indoor Big Ten championships this year and placed sixth at the NCAA championships. While the junior has com-

peted in the long jump outdoors, he said he has been finetuning the technique of his single-arm approach. “I’ve been doing more research and focusing on the three phases of the jump and trying to perfect each one,” he said. “I had a great practice [Monday], so I can feel that it is coming along.” The hurdles should be two of the more exciting events on Saturday. Illinois and Iowa boast some of the top hurdlers not only in the Big Ten but in the country. The 110 hurdles will feature the 2010 NCAA champion in

On Saturday, a major turning point will occur for the Iowa women’s track and field team. The Hawkeyes will compete in their only home meet of the regular outdoor track and field season. The 12th annual Musco Twilight meet is set to start at 2 p.m. on the Cretzmeyer Track and continue through the evening under the lights. “I think it’s unique in that it’s an afternoon meet,” head coach Layne Anderson said. “We have lights, which is not a permanent part of our facility, and we condense the schedule down.” Anderson said the Anderson evening portion of the head coach meet — from 6 to 9 p.m., which is geared toward spectators, families, and friends and is the time all the finals take place — is the highlight. The meet begins a chain of seasonending events. In the following weeks, two more big meets take place for the Hawkeyes. The first is the Drake Relays on April 28-30. Two weeks later, they will host the outdoor Big Ten championships for both the men’s and women’s teams. And the Hawks couldn’t be more excited. But this weekend isn’t about Big Tens; the focus is on Musco. The sprinters and throwers have had SEE WOMEN'S TRACK, 9

Massey leads softball against No. 1 Michigan Freshman pitcher Kayla Massey’s defensive strengths will help the Hawkeyes when they face Michigan this weekend. By MOLLY IRENE OLMSTEAD

When the Iowa softball team will takes on topranked Michigan this weekend, it will have to make every play count. The Hawkeyes will challenge the Wolverines at 5 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. April 24 at Alumni Field in Ann

Arbor, Mich. Michigan leads the NCAA with a 41-3 record; Iowa’s is 2516. “We’ve got Massey a good shot,” head coach freshman Marla Looper said. “[Michigan is] a

very good ball club, but everything we’ve played so far has been good. Everybody’s got strengths, and everybody’s got weaknesses, but we’ve got to key in on where our strengths are.” Iowa is strong when freshman pitcher Kayla Massey is on the mound,

not only in terms of strikeouts, but also defensively because she consistently fields any ball that comes her way. When asked how she manages to field numerous hard-to-reach balls each game, she simply shrugged and said, “I just try to get anything that comes back at me.”

Against Northwestern on April 16, Massey was responsible for nine of the 24 outs made by the Wildcats: Three strikeouts, one caught infield fly, and five plays to first. Her 1.000 fielding-percentage leads the team. Iowa’s only other pitcher, Chelsea Lyon, is also a proficient fielder.

“Both pitchers defensively have become strong fielders,” defense coach Adrianna Baggetta said. “We’ve emphasized and stressed that throughout the fall and the beginning

A historic season for the Iowa men’s golf team, in which they captured five tournament victories, is almost over. The Hawkeyes will travel to Columbus, Ohio, this weekend to take part in their last tournament of the regular season before they compete in the Big Ten championships next week. The Robert Kepler Invitational will take place on the Scarlet Course at the Ohio State University Golf Club and will act as the

final tune-up for the 11thranked Hawkeyes. Play is scheduled to take place Saturday through April 24. Iowa will face No. 13 Illinois, No. 25 Ohio State, and No. 37 Kent State, along with Wisconsin, Minnesota, Dayton, Miami (Ohio), Eastern Michigan, and Ball State. “I think once we play against all the Big Ten teams, we see how we match up against each other going into [the Big Ten championships]” junior Brad George said. “If we have a good week and

Despite being at the bottom of the conference standings, the Iowa baseball team is not out of contention just yet. The Hawkeyes (14-20, 3-6 Big Ten) had an identical conference record at this point last season, and their prospects to advance to the postseason looked dim. Down the stretch,
