SGA debates Freshman Council reform

Championship Knight Raiders win national championship

Senators want campus chapel student feedback By STEPHEN GIPSON STAFF WRITER

Texas Tech’s Student Government Association conducted its last meeting for the term Thursday to discuss legislation reforming the Freshman Council and to place a poll on the SGA MySenate website asking students if they agree with a chapel being built on campus. Stuart Williams, SGA senator, proposed a bill requiring members of the Freshman Council to be elected by their residence hall. He said since the majority of freshmen live in the residence halls, and having them represent their dorm would increase their involvement in SGA. According to the legislation, Tech requires all freshmen to live on campus unless they live with their parents. Colin Davis, SGA senator, questioned how freshmen living off-campus would be represented under this bill. Williams said the freshmen living off-campus will still be represented under the bill, and if the bill is passed, revisions could be made to have a representative for off-campus freshmen as well. He knows the issues freshmen face

Experts believe topic needs to be addressed CONTRIBUTING WRITER

Texas Tech is sponsoring “A Conference on Torture” to generate discussion on the topic of torture at 9:30 a.m. Saturday in Holden Hall Room 150. Departments including the Center for Military Law and Policy and the Center for Healthcare Ethics/ Humanity/Spirituality at the School of Medicine have scheduled speakers for the all-day event. Speakers include Matthew Alexander, author and former military interrogator in Iraq, and Michael Holley, former chief prosecutor of the Abu Ghraib detainee abuse cases, among others specializing in an interest in torture. Walter Schaller, a philosophy professor at Tech, said although the topic of torture is not as prominent as it has

The bill was not passed. Williams said he would like to see more senators share their ideas about potential Freshman Council reform. In other legislation, a bill proposing a poll be placed on the SGA MySenate website asking students whether they agree or disagree with a chapel being built on campus was passed on Thursday. Matt Pippen, an SGA senator and author of the bill, said several students have expressed their opinions to him about the chapel being built on campus. He said students have asked that SGA give them an opportunity to voice their opinion through the MySenate poll.

Jeff Frazier ing influence of the Soviet Empire and its determination to spread its system of Communism throughout the world, President John F. K e n n e d y stood firm and offered a clear directive as to the position of the United States, “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and the success of liberty.” Kennedy understood what the United States needed was not a new strategy in dealing with the Soviet Union, or a complex algorithm by which to decide which actions would best improve the position of the nations, but a firm statement of national identity and purpose.

We needed to be reminded who we were, what we believed in, and by what means we would defend not only our people and our land, but also the ideals that define us. People must be reminded of the principles they believe in. As with any group of people attempting to work together, the details of application often muddle the vision laid out; and as such, from time to time the leader must refocus the group and remind them of their purpose. Winston Churchill described the process best: “Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time — a tremendous whack” In times of uncertainty and upheaval, this becomes more and more necessary, regardless of the nation in question. New nations, or nations re-making themselves, need leaders who can keep intact the principles and values fought for so valiantly, while transitioning their people toward a functioning and stable society. Nations long established need

People must be reminded of the principles they believe in.


he 20th century presented mankind with the greatest challenges it had yet faced. From fighting two world wars to determine the path that civilization itself would take to pushing the bounds of our understanding of the universe and using that knowledge to “slip the surly bonds of Earth to touch the face of God.” The challenges that faced mankind were met with courage, fortitude and strong leadership. Though we are reluctant to admit it, the dawning of the 21st century has begun to develop a level of worldwide conflict and strife that sets the stage for yet another challenge for the course that human society will follow and for the soul of mankind. Old systems find themselves crumbling, power balances have begun to shift, new generations of people march in the streets fighting for the freedoms and liberties their parents and grandparents only dreamed of; all made possible by advancements in technology that allow people to look to each other for support and bypass those who would impose their will through force and the silencing of other voices. These new challenges, however, seem to be lacking in one vital aspect: Clear leadership. When faced with the loom-

leaders who can look back and remember the principles that forged such an enduring entity, and hold fast to them while adapting the nation to the ever shifting world around it. Tr u e l e a d e r s o f f e r n o t a clever new way of doing things, or a detailed cost/benefit analysis of what choices the nation should make based on what is in our “interests,” rather they must embody the principles and values of the nation. They must chart a course based on those principles and values, and then bring that course to the people; acting as their voice in times of unease and strife, an anchor in times of great change, and providing vision in times of darkness and uncertainty. Celia Sandys, granddaughter of Winston Churchill, when asked where she saw leadership akin to that of her grandfather arising amid this new age of uncertainty, responded “Great leaders do not often arise until they are most needed, and when they are, all that matters is that they do.”  Frazier is a communications studies graduate student from West Columbia. ➤➤

There’s nothing wrong with being single S

ingle is just a word that means we are currently enjoying our own company while getting ourselves together. At this particular time in our lives we may not all be ready to be in a relationship. Is being alone bad if that is all we can handle at the moment? Some of you may, in fact, be ready for a relationship and may have even found whom you will spend the rest of your life with. That is great that life has brought you to this place. This article is not directed toward you. Being single seems to often come with a negative connotation, especially for women. It seems more acceptable for men to be single. If a woman is single, it is thought that something is wrong with her because she doesn’t have a companion. We never stop to think she is perfectly fine and is simply not ready for a relationship. We never think perhaps the fact that she is

Jaira Keys single is a choice as opposed to a misfortune. If we are honest with ourselves many of us have or will begin relationships we know deep down will not end up at the altar. We are actively wasting our time. Why do we sometimes put time and energy into things we know won’t work? This is the reason why it is clear not everyone is ready or capable of being in a relationship yet. If we are unconsciously in search of a union that is destined to fail, we will never obtain a healthy relationship. We will just keep going in circles with ourselves. Someone who continuously settles for or unknowingly searches for a dead end relationship perhaps

There is no rush to be tied down. We have the rest of our lives to pursue others and find happiness with them.

has issues they should deal with before being attached to someone else. Simply not everyone is ready. Being in a relationship is a big deal and a huge commitment. We should all slow down and spend time with ourselves before we ever get into a relationship we want to last. If we get into relationship with unresolved issues the relationship just won’t work. Certain situations in life, we can’t solve with other people. Some things in life have to be handled solely by us. How can we help ourselves if we are never alone? We can’t get to know ourselves if we are constantly looking for someone to complete us. We should not be looking to be completed but instead complimented. Before we search for our better half we need to make our half better. Meaning we need to be the best us that we can be before we add anyone else to the picture. Some of us are not ready to be with someone because we don’t know who we are yet. It is impossible to give yourself to someone if you are missing from yourself. There is no rush to be tied down.

Don’t underestimate Spurs


he column “Spurs’ age, injuries will prevent 2011 championship run” is poorly written. The column is based entirely off opinion with very few facts to back it up. The author starts off talking about “little San Antonio.” Last time I checked, San Antonio was the seventh largest city in America. He says the Spurs are a threeman team of Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker, but what he doesn’t say is how many points they account for each night. I know scoring isn’t everything, but it definitely helps, and the Spurs are averaging 103.7 points a game with the big three only accounting for 48.7 of those points. That’s 47%, but where is the other 53% coming from each night? Maybe it’s Matt Bonner, who

there would need to be work done, but the Red Raiders have made drastic improvements since he was brought in. “You know, I expect us to go from the bottom of the barrel all the way to the top,” Hays said, “but I am proud of what the girls have done this year, though I’m not happy with (Wednesday’s) performance.” Hays said he needs his team to get rid of the negativity from its losses to Baylor. He said if the Red Raiders can accomplish that, they should come away with a few victories. “They have to spit that bad taste of the Baylor losses out and put that behind them,” he said. “They can’t focus on the past.”

“We really need to come back with a couple of wins this weekend,” Hall said. “We know we have to give the games our best, and if we bat like we can we should be able to do just that.” Hall said the struggles during the past few weeks are not because of one aspect of the team, but all aspects need to pick up their play. She said the pitching has not been where it has needed to be early on, and the batters have not approached the ball well, both of which were made apparent in Wednesday’s 5-1 and 10-3 losses to Baylor. Hays said all areas of the team need to improve before they are ready to compete for the rest of the season. He said he knew when he took over the program last year

Tech took both games handily, winning 8-2 and 11-6. The midweek sweep comes just two days after the Red Raiders were dealt a sweep of their own at Oklahoma. Tech’s trip to Oklahoma, however, was just the team’s second multi-game trip of the season against a conference foe; the other was a three-game set at Baylor. eD

TCU and Oklahoma were just the tip of the iceberg when it came to opposing pitching staffs Texas Tech had on its 2011 schedule. Against TCU, the Red Raiders faced Matt Purke, a first-round pick of the Texas Rangers coming out of high school. A road trip to Norman, Okla., last week consisted of a date with the Sooners’ twotime winner of the Big 12 Conference Pitcher of the Week award in 2011 and team captain, Michael Rocha. Up next, though, could be Tech’s (19-11, 4-5 in Big 12 play) toughest challenge yet: Texas A&M’s group of pitchers, which boasts a conference-best 2.01 ERA. “They’re solid, we probably won’t see anything under 92 miles an hour,” Tech outfielder Nick Hanslik said. “That’s one of the things we’ve done this year; hit good pitching, and so we’re going to be ready for them.” The Red Raiders begin their set with the Aggies at 6:30 p.m. to day at Dan Law Field.
