Hance gives funds for chapel “

POTENTIAL CHAPEL USE I would probably (use it because) it’s a great thing to get a hold of God on campus. We’re a public university, so it kind of gets put on the wayside. Someone could go in between classes and pray and kind of have an open area where they could be comfortable. I could see people using it.”

Building to be named after chancellor By CAITLAN OSBORN STAFF WRITER

Texas Tech Chancellor Kent Hance said he donated 60 percent of the funding for a $3 million non-denominational chapel to be built on Tech’s campus. The chapel will be christened the Kent R. Hance Chapel, in accordance with a university policy that states gifts covering more than half of the building’s costs are named in honor of the primary donor. Margaret Talkington, a

Lubbock businesswoman and philanthropist and a friend of Hance, also made a donation, according to a news release sent Sunday. The chancellor said he first approached the Board of Regents two years ago with the idea for the building.

Steven Wolf senior civil engineering major from Denton -

“I think it’s a good idea because I know a lot of people don’t have church homes around here, so it would probably benefit students and kids. I think it’s a very good use, and I think a lot of students would use it.

- Dedrick Dews - sophomore sports management major from Dallas


CHAPEL continued on Page 3 ➤➤


TEXAS TECH’S CHAPEL, approved by the Board of Regents in February, is set to be built near 19th Street and University Avenue.

I wouldn’t use it. I mean, who has time to use a chapel? I guess if I were more religious I would. If (Hance) is using his own money, then I can’t see why it shouldn’t be here. I think it would be good especially for weddings and people who want to come back to Tech to get married.” Angela Andrus sophomore clinical lab sciences major from North Richland Hills -

Professors weigh in on plagiarism as finals approach

Consequences could greatly impact future By AMY BREWER CONTRIBUTING WRITER

T h r e e m e m b e r s o f Te x a s Tech’s faculty name a variety of reasons students choose to plagiarize, but they all agree on one thing: The consequences of plagiarism do not end when the semester does. Liz Watts, an associate journalism professor at Tech, said plagiarism is often written off as an ethical issue, but it can also be a legal issue. She said most people who put their work on the Internet, such as dissertations, copyright them. “A lot of universities put their theses and dissertations on the Internet now,” Watts said. “You

could go borrow from any university who does that, and if you get caught, the university can dismiss you. It’s done. It’s over. You won’t ... if you get your degree.” get caught, Sofia the university Rodriguez, can dismiss director of you. It’s done. Student JuIt’s over. You dicial Prowon’t get your g r a m s a t Tech, said degree.” when an Liz Watts Associate Professor a c a d e m i c integrity issue is reported to her office, she keeps it on file for seven years.

Texas Tech biology students, under the direction of assistant professor Ximena Bernal, spent Arbor Day celebrating Save the Frogs Day to raise awareness about wild amphibian conservation. “Save the Frogs!” is a nonprofit organization that began in 2008 in California, Bernal said. ARBOR DAY: Check Bernal’s lab, composed of out photos from both graduate and underother festivities. graduate students, works La Vida, Page 6 with live amphibians in order to study the animals’ behavior. Bernal said she believed it would be a good idea for her students to share what they have learned in her class with the rest of the college community. “We know that in about the last 30 years, about 200 species of amphibians have gone extinct,” she said. “That’s losing one species every two months. So there’s been a lot of concern in the scientific community about it. We feel that the general public is unaware of the fact and many don’t know that the population of frogs and toads and other amphibians are in trouble.” FROGS continued on Page 6 ➤➤

Sports Walk-off win gives Tech its first Big 12 sweep since ‘06 By JOSE RODRIGUEZ Barrett Barnes helped jumpstart Texas Tech’s sweep of Kansas with a walk-off single to give the Red Raiders a 3-2 win Friday. Barnes then helped Tech end the series Sunday in walk-off fashion as well — but he wasn’t a part of the winning at-bat. In fact, Barnes struck out in the bottom of the ninth with the Red Raiders facing a two-run deficit. The strikeout pitch delivered to Barnes, however, snuck by Kansas catcher James Stanfield, allowing for Barnes to advance to first base. “Barrett’s at-bat was the key at-bat of the inning because he did strike out,” Tech coach Dan Spencer said, “but he didn’t hesitate to get down the line and get to first. (If he had) felt sorry for himself and stood there for a minute, he’d been thrown out.” Barnes was Tech’s first base runner in the final frame, and was later driven in by teammate Kelby Tomlinson to bring the Red Raiders (28-19, 9-12 in Big 12 Conference play) within one run. Kansas (20-24, 9-12) reliever Colton Murray delivered another wild pitch later in the inning, this time to Tech catcher Bo Altobelli, allowing him to get on base while giving Stephen Hagen enough time to score from third base to tie the game. Tech’s winning run, anti-climatically, came by way of a four-pitch walk to Andre Wheeler with the bases loaded, giving Tech an 8-7 win and completing the Red Raiders’ first sweep of a Big 12 opponent in the Spencer era. Tech swept a three-game series against Missouri in May 2006. If the top of the ninth was any indication of how the game would end, the Jayhawks may have been victorious Sunday. Tech entered the ninth owning a 5-4 lead with starter-turned relief pitcher Robbie Kilcrease on the mound.

Clean Sweep

The inning’s first two outs were recorded in quick fashion, pitting Kilcrease and the Red Raiders within a pitch of escaping with a win at that point. After a pair of Kansas players successfully reached base, Tucker Tharp did his part to extend the game by hitting a three-run home run, giving the Jayhawks a two-run lead. The moment came with its share of disbelief for the Tech dugout. “We were pretty frustrated, you know,” Barnes said. “But our coaches really calmed us down real quick, got us back into the zone and we had a good approach that last inning.” Kilcrease, despite Tharp’s blast, was credited with the victory, improving his record to 4-2. Tech’s Sunday starter, Duke von Schamann, lasted four innings, allowing two earned runs on four hits to go with three strikeouts. Spencer said the Kansas series was a “must-win” last week, considering the amount of games remaining on Tech’s schedule. A sweep of Kansas, though, now has the Red Raiders in fifth place, placing Tech right back in the hunt for a spot in the Big 12 Championships. “We know we’re not out of it,” Tomlinson said. “If we can come together right here at the end and make a run — that’s what matters.”
