New UA Engineering Building in the Works Travis Pence Staff Writer

With a growing student population, university officials are planning to contruct another building to accommodate more students, UA officials said. The university is also planning construction of new academic buildings on the parking lots located to the south, or across Dickson Street, from the original engineering hall, Johnson said.

“Those building will be considered a part of the John A. White Jr. Engineering Hall,” he said. Plans will require the reconfiguration of pedestrian crossings to increase safety in that area, Johnson said. In addition to the new academic buildings, the university will add another wing to the existing engineering hall, he said. This new wing will complete the original construction plans for the building and add a 200 to 300 seat classroom to the building, Johnson said.

International Students Weigh in on US Politics With Worldly Perspective

Nuri Heo Staff Writer

Many international students are interested in the upcoming presidential election although they cannot vote. “The United States’ politics has a large influence on world politics,” said Menjiao Liao, UA student. “I personally care about the election even though I do not have the right to vote. I think that the result of the election directly affects the United States foreign policies, which most of the international students care about, such as immigration.” Some international students watched the Presidential Debates to learn about the candidates. “I am interested in the U.S. presidential election since the current economy has decreased,” said Richard Wong, who is from China. “I have watched many debates on TV shows. It is interesting to see arguments between Democrats and Republican who try to come up with new policies to help the economy. Although I cannot vote, I think that Democrats are more likely care about the domestic power.” Some students have changed their minds about how they feels about politics. “I did not care about the United States’ elections and politics when I was a fresh-

Officials changed the name of ‘Engineering Hall’ to ‘John A. White Jr. Engineering Hall. Along with the name change, officials made plans to make additions and restorations to the building, “This restoration and addition project will upgrade outdated teaching facilities, as well as bring mechanical, electrical, and life safety systems to current code,” Johnson said. The enrollment rate at the UA is higher than ever, Gearhart said.

Terrell Williams, 21, of Tulsa was pulled over after he was swerving and crossing the centerline, according to the police report. When questioned by the officer, he said that he had been at a party at the Hwy. 62 Event Center but he had not had anything to drink. Williams then failed the sobriety test and had bloodshot eyes. Williams, a linebacker, was moved into a starting position after Tenarius Wright and Alonzo Highsmith had

man in college, however I have become more interested in them,” said Lalay Daseul Park. “The reason is that because I think if the United States changes their policies, that will definitely affect the entire world, so I am sure that many people would focus on the U.S. election. I wish I could vote for the U.S. president and influence not only the U.S. but also other countries’ policies.”

“The United States’ politics has a large influence on to the world politics.” Menjiao Liao

UA International Student While some foreign students care about the U.S. presidential election, there are some who are not interested in the election. “I do not care about the US presidential election, because I am not registered to vote, so there is no point for me to care about it,” said Hanbit Eric Lee. “I just do not like politics because their images to me are all propaganda, and there is not really a clear way to distinguish who is what since they all have their managers, coordinators and even speech writers. I just cannot change anything for this country.”

Travis Pence Staff Writer The various construction projects occurring on campus this semester have a direct correlation with the growing student population at the UA, facilities management officials said. The university is working on multiple construction and restoration projects on campus, said Mike Johnson, associate vice chancellor for facilities management. Here are updates on the major ones: Founders Hall: The Founders Hall, under construction on Mcllroy Avenue, next to Brough Commons, is one of the projects that have resulted from the growing student population, Johnson said. “The Founders Hall is going to be a dormitory that connects to the Brough Commons,� he said.

Founders Hall will be a six-story building with the capacity to house approximately 215 students, Johnson said. The building will increase seating capacity of the Brough dining hall by 250 seats. “Founders Hall is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2013,� Johnson said. Hillside Auditorium: Hillside will open for classes in the Spring semester, despite an original completion date of earlier this semester. The Hillside Auditorium is another project constructed to accommodate the university’s growing student population, said Bob Beeler, director of design and construction services. “The auditorium will replace the old science and engineering auditorium, which only held about 250 students. The building will be able to accommodate room for up to around 700 students,� Beeler said.

Other renovations: “We are making renovations to buildings such as: Kimpel Hall, Hotz Hall, Ozark Hall and the Yocum dormitory,� Johnson said. University officials are making plans to bring the buildings’ quality up to current standards, Johnson said. “The buildings are simply outdated. Their quality has somewhat deteriorated over time,� he said. These projects are necessary if the university wants to keep up with its growing population, Johnson said. “In 2009 we had roughly 16,000 total undergraduate students. This year we have almost 25,000 undergraduate students,� Johnson said. Students noticed the growth of the university population. “I’m glad the school is building more classrooms and dorms. They’re obviously running out of room to accommodate everybody. I’ve never seen it this congested before,� said Elliot Zinter, senior history major.

The fourth issue on the ballot would simply allow the operation of casinos throughout the state. A poll taken in July that showed 66 percent of participants opposed the two amendments. Medicinal Marijuana: Proposition five concerns medicinal marijuana. This amendment would make the medical use of marijuana legal under Arkansas State Law. It would also establish a system for the cultivation, acquisition and distribution of marijuana for patients. Patients would have to submit to the state a written certification from a physician that they are suffering from a qualifying medical condition. The list of qualifying conditions including cancer, glaucoma, positive status for HIV/AIDS, hepatitis C, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Tourette’s disease, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, post traumatic stress disorder, fibromyalgia, agitation of Alzheimer’s disease or the treatment of these conditions, a chronic or debilitating disease or medical condition or its treatment that produces one or more of the following: Cachexia or wasting syndrome, peripheral neuropathy, intractable pain, severe nausea, seizures, including those characteristic of epilepsy or several and persistent muscle spasms, including those associated with multiple sclerosis. The Department of Health would establish rules related to the processing of applying and registering for medical marijuana identification cards. It would also establish rules for the operation of marijuana dispensaries. Reporting by Travis Pence

Walmart Robbers Jailed After Chase on I-540

Roork

Kayli Farris Senior Staff Writer Two people who were arrested Friday morning are still in jail with a $25,000 bond, according to the Washington County Detainee report. After a high-speed police chase, the two people were arrested for stealing a donation jar from the Walmart on campus, police said. James Roork, 26, of Texas, walked into the Walmart on campus and grabbed a Children’s Miracle Network donation jar and quickly fled the store, UAPD spokesman Lt. Gary Crain said. The man got into a white Ford pickup truck driven by Denise Marie Berry, 25, also of Texas.

Berry A Walmart employee attempted to chase Roork, and was punched in the face in the process, Crain said. UAPD received a call about the incident, and provided a description to the Fayetteville Police Department via the radio system. Fayetteville police officers saw the pickup on Wedington Drive, near Sang Avenue, heading toward Interstate 540, where they proceeded southbound, Crain said. “Around West Fork, officers deployed a spike strip and the pickup tires flattened,� Crain said. Roork and Berry were arrested at 9:20 a.m. Robbery evidence, drugs and a handgun were found in the vehicle, Crain said.

ADDITION continued from page 1 “We must branch out and make addition to the campus if we want to keep up with the ever growing student population,� Gearhart said. John A. White, Jr. Engineering Hall houses laboratories, classrooms, and offices for the College of Engineering, said Mike Johnson, associate vice chancellor for facilities management. John A. White Jr. served as the UA chancellor from 1997 until 2008, leading the campus during a period of unprecedented growth and academic achievement, supported and enhanced by the Campaign for the TwentyFirst Century, which raised more than a billion dollars. White, an Arkansas native and University of Arkansas alumnus, continues to teach at his alma mater as an emeritus distinguished professor of industrial engineering, according to ineg.uark.edu.

The proposal was introduced by Michael Wasserman, a Texas businessman who owns Arkansas Hotels and Entertainment Inc. His company would have both owned and operated the casinos, which would have been located in Sebastian, Pulaski, Garland, Miller, Crittenden, Boone and Jefferson counties.

Sale Tax Increase: The Arkansas Sales Tax Increase Amendment, or Issue One, is an proposed amendment that will apply a temporary sales tax of one-half percent. The money will be used for the restoration of state highways, bridges and county roads. The amendment will allow the sale of bonds by the state of Arkansas to fund the construction of a four-lane highway throughout the state. Under the terms and conditions, the cost for construction of the highway will not exceed $1.3 billion. The bonds will be allowed to mature and will be paid in full within approximately 10 years. Once the bonds are paid off, the state will terminate the temporary sales and use tax. In order to provide repayment of the bonds, the state will permanently dedicate one cent per gallon of the proceeds derived from the existing motor fuel l taxes to the fund. A poll was taken in March that showed about 50 percent of participants were opposed to the amendment.

Three Serious Ward 4 Candidates, Peters for UA

Editorial Board The Arkansas Traveler

Our decision on who we believe will be the best Ward 4, Position 2 was our hardest to make. If you live close to campus, your mailbox may be stuffed with election information. It is likely that you are receiving mail-outs and other advertisements from Terry Coberly, Alan Long and J.P. Peters, whom we consider to be the top three candidates in the race. It was hard to weed the candidates out, but we know which candidate will be best for the UA. Long is a committed member of our city, but he does not fit our picture for the best city council candidate. He is a strong champion of better animal shelter practices and has displayed his ability to offer strong ideas the chair of the Animal Services Advisory Board. We’d like to see Long continue to work with committed residents like Scott Harper and patrons of the Fayetteville Animal Shelter to promote a no-kill shelter in Fayetteville, but this isn’t Long’s year to represent UA neighborhoods on city council. He has not been a fan of case-by-case expansion of student resources in Fayetteville and urges for a long-term solution, but we haven’t seen his thoughts on a new plan. We hope he continues to work hard for Fayetteville in different ways, though. It came down to J.P. Peters and Terry Coberly; a hard choice. Coberly holds the best municipal experience, but we do

not think she is best for UA students. Coberly is a former Bentonville mayor and has experience as a city clerk and the president of the Arkansas Municipal League. There is no doubt in our mind that she knows how to run a campaign, either; she did a great job in this election cycle. Yet, we find her UA solutions to be pretty weak. Coberly advocated for an overlay district and to fix parking, great solutions, but we don’t know what priority they would have in her four years. J.P. Peters is our alderwoman hopeful for this election. It will be a close election, but two issues for Peters make her our gal: public transportation and the Town and Gown Committee. Peters is right on the money as she advocates for an expansion of public transportation. A Fayetteville transportation tax failed earlier this year, but we hope that Peters champions transportation initiatives that bring our city into a better state to offer strong transportation for students and residents. Also, we approve of her expansion ideas concerning the Town and Gown committee. The choice to make a committee was a great start, but it is time to develop the committee and give it a stronger voice in Fayetteville. Another committee without actual expectations to comment on town and gown issues or have regulatory power would be a wasteful expansion. We think Peters will help the committee develop in a way that is healthy for both the city and UA.

Web Comments Disappointing Editorial Board The Arkansas Traveler

We don’t expect all comments on our website to be serious or conducive comments. Yet, comments posted on Miranda Campbell’s article, “ASG Makes New Proposal for Islamic Center,” blew our expectations of ignorant students out of the water. A comment written on our website called the Islamic Center located across from campus, “fugly.” Another comment discussed religious favoritism on the part of administrators. These comments make UA

look bad, but also make the nature of a campus appear abhorrent. We ask all that wish to comment on the website to do so in hopes of starting conversations to improve our campus. A few of the comments on the story discussing positive change did just that. We want to be able to provide an online forum where students may comment on the news in an appropriate way. We want to remind all students that commenting on our website is something we provide for students to express themselves in a responsible way.

Tori Pohlner ASG President Countless hours of preparation have led up to tomorrow. Late night strategy meetings, sleepless nights and hundreds of thousands of volunteers have worked behind the scenes to advance a candidate in whom they believe. Candidates have polished themselves, they’ve debated and argued, they’ve run millions of dollars’ worth of ads, and they have mailed, emailed, called, Facebooked and tweeted you until you’re probably sick of it. I know Saturday alone I got seven separate emails from the candidate I support, ranging from a last minute call for funds to a simple encouragement to vote. I wondered if they were feeling threatened by the opponent, if this was perhaps a last minute,

on campus had voted. Voter turnout is never anywhere near that high. So we, too, sent many emails, increased our social media presence and searched for ways to connect with voters in the final stretch, just like the candidates this year. Why should you care? Well, for starters, voting is your civic duty. Our founding fathers didn’t fight for independence so you could let others decide who your leaders are. They were looking to the future, to 2012, to Tuesday when you have the opportunity to choose your leader for yourself. Don’t let them down. Your ASG has been doing its part to help you vote. Young Democrats President Matthew Seubert, College Republicans President Grant Hodges, Director of National Advocacy Ruthie Bradley and National Elections Coordinator Luke Fair hosted voter registration drives until the last possible day. The Senate funded the UA Motor Voter, which bussed students from the Union Bus Station to the Washington County Courthouse for two days during early voting. Maybe some of you have candidates at home you wanted to be able to support. I chose to vote via absentee ballot so I could support a

fellow Weiner High School alumus in his race for state representative. Many of you are from out of state, and likely had opinions about your own state representatives. So if you also chose to vote absentee, I hope you got your ballots in the mail by Saturday so your vote could be counted. If you were unaware this was an option, next election time you can contact your county clerk, and they will be happy to help you participate in the election. At 61 percent of the voter turnout, 2,313 students voted for Vice President Bobby Pennington and myself in March of this year. It’s a number I’m sure I will remember for the rest of my life. I appreciate each and every voter, and recognize how they were all incredibly valuable to our victory. Take ownership in your rights as an American citizen. Celebrate the victory of our forefathers, and the success of their incredible vision! Be part of the population in support of your candidate of choice. I promise your individual vote means more to them than you know! Tori Pohlner is the 20122013 Associated Student Government president.

desperate attempt to reach voters. Then I thought back to what my campaign was like. For a week and a half, my team and I, as well as my opponent, bombarded campus with signs, t-shirts, stickers, cups, free food, fun events, tweets, Facebook posts, emails, YouTube videos, etc. For a week and a half, we stood on Brough Corner, on the Union Mall and on Garland Avenue and Maple Street talking to students about our platform, and why we felt we were the best candidates. Unlike the national elections that are held on one day, campus voting lasted four days. The first two days were great. Students could finally vote for the candidate they decided they preferred over the last week. As the candidates, we felt great about how things were going. The final two days, however, there was a totally different feel to the campaign, and I think these two days are comparable to the status of the candidates now. I was worried that voters were numb. They had heard so much about it that they didn’t care. Every student who passed by was asked if they had voted, and we mostly heard “yes,” or “I don’t care.” We knew there was no way all 23,199 students

National elections historically have two dominant sides: Republican or Democrat. However, with the complexity of politics and the growth of liberalism in society, it’s difficult to agree on a definite set of views that the two major parties represent. It is not uncommon for some to define their political beliefs outside a national party. Third parties provide an alternative to the prevailing parties. Some third parties’ views are original but usually their ideas are hybrids of the two major parties. Arkansas’ well-known

third parties are the Green Party and the Libertarian Party. The Green Party of Arkansas began in 1996 after successfully adding green party candidate Ralph Nader to the ballot, according to encyclopediaofarkansas.com. The GPA’s standpoint is exemplified by their 10 key values which include ecological wisdom and feminism, according to the GPA website. The GPA’s policies are based on individuals standing for what is ethical and moral for the well-being of all humanity, according to the GPA website. The Libertarian Party of Arkansas, an affiliate of the national Libertarian Party, has been active since the mid1970s. The LPAR is neither liberal nor conservative but supports minimum government and maximum freedom. Unlike liberals or conservatives, Libertarians advocate personal and economic liberty, according to lpar.org. Because of the party’s inability to meet the requirement of 3 percent of

total number of votes, LPAR is not a state recognized party. Unfortunately this is a hurdle all third parties face. In 2006, the American Civil Liberties Union challenged in court the Arkansas election law that required an independent candidate provide 10,000 signatures of voters in the previous gubernatorial or presidential election, but that third party candidates must provide a full 3 percent of those signatures, according to Common Dreams NewsCenter. This inequality made it almost impossible for third parties to get on the ballot. A federal judge ruled this law unconstitutional and ordered Arkansas to put third party candidates on the ballot. This ruling made it possible for Arkansans who have political views different from Republicans and Democrats to more easily participate in elections and provided voters with more opportunity to support candidates that best reflect their political views, ACLU of Arkansas Director Rita Sklar said. In the Arkansas elections

this year, there are Green party and Libertarian party candidates on the ballot for the four U.S. House races. Green party candidate, Rebekah Kennedy, faces incumbent Republican Rep. Steve Womack and Libertarian candidate David Pangrac in the race for the third congressional District in Arkansas. Kennedy is polling at 15.5 percent of votes, Womack at 58 percent and Pangrac at 6 percent according to uselectionatlas. org. While the major party candidate, Womack, is ahead in polls, Kennedy’s 15.5 percent is good progress for third party politics, considering third parties could barely made the ballot previous years. With upcoming generations acquiring more liberal ideas and being exposed to politics at younger ages, third parties have the potential to increase, locally and nationally.

RSO OF THE WEEK

College Republicans Rallies Support for Election Day Stephanie Ehrler Staff Writer

It’s 10:00 p.m. on Sunday night, and that World Literature paper students have been procrastinating on is about to meet its deadline at midnight. Another deadline approaches, too, one that the UA College Republicans RSO has been anticipating since the last national election, one that in 48 hours could change the political atmosphere of America. UA College Republicans has over 150 members who are interested in seeing a political party change in the White House. “We had five or less people involved in 2009, and now we have almost 500 students on our email listserv, almost 700 likes on Facebook and over 1,100 followers on Twitter,” said Grant Hodges, senior political science/economics major and chairman of UA College Republicans. “Our growth has been incredible, and I’m excited to see the results of our efforts on Election Day.” The 700 likes on Facebook and 1,100 followers on Twitter indicate that joining College Republicans is as easy as clicking “like” or “follow.” “In order to make CRs accessible to everyone, we don’t require a membership fee or formal process to join,” Hodges said. “If someone wants to join, they should send their email address to collrep@uark.edu, like us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/UofAGOP) and follow us on Twitter (www.twitter.com/ UofAGOP). Those are the three ways we communicate our message and update our members on events.” While it is not a secret that Arkansas is a red state politically, College Republicans takes the RSO past simply trying to convince others to join the Republican Party. “Our mission is simple: We are here to represent the conservative voice on campus and elect Republican candidates to local, state and federal office,” Hodges said. College Republicans also invites anyone and everyone, even if they do not know anything about politics, to learn more about the Republican Party and government itself, he said. College freshmen hold more liberal views than ever before on social issues, according to an article in The Huffington Post. College Republi-

cans encourages those interested in politics to maintain their own views and stay unique. “I got involved for multiple reasons, the most important being to make a difference on campus in favor of conservative ideals,” said Catherine Kirby, junior nursing major and College Republicans secretary. “I want liberal influences to recognize that not all college students are riding the liberal bandwagon.” The organization will be together as the votes add up on election night. “We will likely invite our members to join the Washington County Republican Committee watch party the night of November 6th,” Hodges said. “We work closely with our county committee, and most of the candidates we have volunteered for will be at the Clarion Inn in Fayetteville that night. I was there in 2010 when Charlie Collins was declared the winner of his state representative race by less than 100 votes. It’s fun to be a part of.” An association based on politics may seem formal, but many of the members of College Republicans have grown close on a personal level, too. “I have met some of my closest friends by joining College Republicans,” Kirby said. “I get to hang out with really fun people while working to expand the Republican Party’s influence, which is a dream come true for me. Everyone is interested in different aspects of politics and is studying different things, so that has allowed me to learn a great deal.” The conservative group allows its members to bond over political views while also giving networking opportunities for the future. “The opportunities I’ve had as a College Republican have changed my life,” Hodges said. “I’ve volunteered for campaigns and interned for local Republicans, and I now serve as campaign manager for Randy Alexander in his race for state representative in District 88. I never could have imagined doing any of those things before I got to the U of A, but College Republicans opened a lot of doors for me.” “I’ve also met my best friends through CRs,” Hodges continued. “We’ve got a great group of people who are passionate but know how to have fun, too.”

The Facebook Relationship Effect: How Social Networking Has Changed Dating Alex March Staff Writer

S

ince February 2004, romantic relationships have never been the same. Allison McCann of BuzzFeed says Facebook has forever altered the way we date. Now, couples must make conscious decisions about when they are actually dating and when to make breakups public knowledge. It has even changed how we talk about dating. Ten years ago, no one would have used phrases like “in a relationship” or “it’s complicated.” Junior Brooke Anderson agrees that social media has transformed some long-standing cultural norms. “It makes dating even more impersonal,” Anderson said. She thinks Facebook has taken the personal connection out of the equation. “All of the texting and social media make relationships more casual,” Anderson said. “You’re not really investing any time into it.” She said she values time spent together instead of over the phone or online.

or pictures with friends. Others, like pictures with exes, may be more contentious. Facebook also dictates the exact moment a relationship becomes “official”: when both parties change their relationship status. Junior Emily Morton said she sees two sides — some couples place too much emphasis on being Facebook official, while others think it is an encroachment into their private lives.

“It [social media] reduces the face-to-face contact, and that’s how you make a connection with someone.” Brooke Anderson UA Junior

“It reduces the face-to-face contact, and that’s how you make a connection with someone,” she said. Social media has changed everything from the first date to the final goodbye. One issue that arises is that now, a potential date knows more about someone from looking at their profile than could possibly be discussed over dinner one night. If pictures say a thousand words, a profile is worth a week’s worth of dates. Some material may be harmless, like vacation photos

“Some people think Facebook dictates the legitimacy of a relationship,” Morton said. “Others think that changing your relationship status makes things too public.” After the initial test of whether or not to change their relationship status, couples must continue the public presence of their personal lives. Some keep it simple, with pictures together every now and then and an anniversary status. Others treat their significant other’s Facebook wall like a love letter open to the public.

Morton said those couples who are too active on Facebook annoy her because she thinks couples do it to flaunt their relationship. “It’s awesome that you’re in love, but we really don’t care,” Morton said. Some Facebook couples move on, changing their status from “In A Relationship” to “Engaged” to “Married” and posting wedding pictures, and then baby pictures. The majority of couples, however, will encounter the issue of when to change their statuses back to “Single.” With the ending of a relationship on Facebook comes a flood of comments showing support or total shock, all for your friends to see. In some cases, Facebook makes the ambiguity of some breakups a thing of the past. No longer can people stop returning calls or slowly end things. Like the beginning of the relationship, the end now has to be a conscious decision, a yes or a no. Facebook is not always a negative force in relationships. By using features like the timeline and friendship pages to see people who were once friends, Facebook friendship can evolve into an actual relationship. Facebook is also another way to keep in touch when people are apart. A good deal of flirting can be done online now, with simple things like sharing a link and liking a picture. Regardless of the negative or positive impact, Facebook and social media have forever changed dating. What was once public is now available to everyone, creating some difficult decisions for couples.

International Student Lights Up The Stage While Pursuing Her Dreams Alex Golden Staff Writer

In a single audience, there are numerous social and cultural divisions between spectators. But when the curtain pulls, everyone takes in what is portrayed onstage and applies it as they see fit to their own lives, and that’s one less division. Everyone came to see the same play that told one story, and that’s unity. And that’s why graduate student Missy Maramara continues to act. “Acting (has) capacity to be truthful given imaginary circumstances,” Maramara said. “Its generosity allows you to bring people together in a significant experience. Everyone can relate, and suddenly there’s a community. Acting’s capacity to bring people together despite differences is fascinating to me. If I can make someone feel safe in what they’re going through, that is rewarding to me.” Maramara moved here two years ago from the Philippines after receiving a Fulbright scholarship to pursue her master’s degree in drama. In the Philippines, extended families live together, and it is unheard of to move out before getting married, she said. Because she was exposed to the American way of life through the media, Maramara thought she would experience no culture shock, she said, laughing. “Wrong!” she said, slamming her fist down on the table at Starbucks. “There’s no such thing as the American. Everyone is an individual … Values are universal, and that’s comforting when you see the similarities despite

The play will be showing in the University Theatre November 9 - 18, 2012. the differences.” Switching from performing in the Philippines to the U.S., Maramara had to learn how to get American audiences to respond. She said that it is easier to be emotional onstage in the Philippines because in Filipino culture, people wear their hearts on their sleeves. They love to laugh and watch melodramas, she said. In American theater, the emotions and intensity are on the inside, and the focus is on the action. As a result, she said she has to be more mindful and structured here. “How do I mix the two to find a

place that works in the shared realm?” Maramara asked, dropping her arms down. “What makes me love theater so much is it encompasses all these cultural realms and barriers just fall down.” Maramara will be performing in the University Theatre’s production of “Blithe Spirit” Nov. 9-11 and Nov. 14-18. She will play Madame Arcati, a woman who conjures the ghost of a man’s first wife and then disrupts his current marriage. Maramara has had to tackle portraying an eccentric character.

“Anyone who’s overly passionate about one singular thing can be deemed crazy, but it’s normal to them,” she said. “The real strange ones think they’re normal, so I play it like she’s normal and everyone else is weird.” Mavourneen Dwyer, associate professor of drama, is directing the play. “Dwyer is like our fairy godmother,” Maramara said. She said Dwyer tells the cast to think outside the box and to find things they can relate to in order to help their performances. The cast is made up of both undergraduate and graduate students. Mara-

mara said the cast manages to be both fun and disciplined. “I can’t say this enough — this is such a fun cast,” she said. “I hope (the play) tickles the funny bone in everyone … The audience will ask what issues are manifesting in themselves, and what are the ghosts that will rock your life as you know it,” she said. Maramara said that interacting with international students who are from other nations, yet who are going through the same experiences she is as an outsider, has been comforting to her. The theater department as whole has also helped her transition, she said. “UA gives an approach to theater I can rely on and gives all these springboards from where I can fly … All of my professors have led me to a safe place. They know their art so well, and they’re not snobs. They’re so gracious,” she said. “I’m not a dancer, but I feel like I can do anything onstage.” Onstage nerves, however, still exist for the actress. “You don’t get used to being nervous,” Maramara said. “You just learn how to use it onstage for the service of telling a story.” Maramara’s acting career will not be coming to a halt any time soon if all goes as planned. She intends to pursue theater in numerous places. “The nice thing about theater is you’re never too old for it,” she said. “We just keep learning and writing and doing.” Maramara will have a birthday during the running of “Blithe Spirit.” “I love performing on my birthday,” she said. “I should be performing until the day I die.”

FOOTBALL

Hogs Barely Win Possession Time, Game Kristen Coppola Sports Editor

In front of 64,451 fans, the lowest turn-out at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium in five years, the Arkansas Razorbacks scraped by with a 1915 homecoming win over the Tulsa Golden Hurricane. Total time of possession for each team was nearly even with the Razorbacks controlling the ball for 30:19 and the Golden Hurricane controlling the ball for 29:41. On the season, the Razorbacks have possessed the ball 33:03 less than their opponents. Arkansas has improved on time of possession in the last three games and have controlled the time of possession in each game since playing Kentucky Oct. 13. The Razorbacks trailed only once during the game, when the Golden Hurricane scored a field goal early in the third quarter to take a 15-13 lead. The field goal that put the Golden Hurricane up came after kicker Daniel Schwarz already missed two extra points and a 42-yard field goal. The five points that would have resulted had Schwarz not missed the extra points and field goal would have been enough to put Tulsa ahead of Arkansas. One of the extra points was blocked by DeQuinta Jones; it was the first point after touchdown that the Razorbacks blocked since playing New

Men’s Team Completes Fall Season

Gareth Patterson Staff Photographer Tulsa Golden Hurricane kicker Daniel Schwarz walks away with his head hung low after he missed a field goal Saturday. Schwarz missed two extra point attempts and a 42-yard field goal that could have led to a defeat of the Razorbacks. Mexico State in 2004. A one-yard rush by Dennis Johnson put six points on the board for the Razorbacks, but the Hogs attempted a twopoint conversion and failed and the score remained 19-15 for the remainder of the game. In a post-game conference, head coach John L. Smith

talked about the Razorback defense. “When we get them aligned again and get them guys where they’re supposed to (be), we’re not bad,” Smith said. The defense allowed only three of 15 third-down conversions by the Golden Hur-

ricane and two of four fourthdown conversions. Tulsa made it to the red-zone three times but scored twice. The Golden Hurricane was the first team with a winning record that the Razorbacks beat this season. Tulsa was coming off of a seven-game winning streak after losing

the first game of the season to Iowa State. The Razorbacks face three Southeastern Conference games against No .12 South Carolina, No. 22 Mississippi State and No. 9 LSU to close the season. To be bowl eligible, the Hogs have to beat two of their SEC rivals.

The Arkansas men’s tennis team finished the fall season this weekend in Las Vegas in the UNLV Larry Easley Invitational. Two Razorbacks advanced to the singles consolation match, but they chose not to play each other. The Razorbacks finished the fall season with a winning record in both singles and doubles after eight fall tournaments. Three Razorbacks, senior Gregoire Lehmann, junior Manfred Jeske and sophomore Jovan Parlic, travelled to Las Vegas to take on several teams. Lehmann and Jeske each advanced to the consolation finals. The Hogs took on players from schools including Arizona, Oklahoma State, Southern Methodist, Northern Arizona, Seminole State College and UNLV. After a tough first day, all three Razorbacks were able to finish the fall season strong with a win Sunday. Arkansas was able to rack up six match wins in both singles and doubles at UNLV’s Fertitta Tennis Complex over the course of the event. Lehmann beat Arizona’s Matt Dunn in straight sets,

Razorbacks Open Season With Exhibition Victory Cameron McCauley Staff Writer

The Arkansas Razorbacks women’s basketball team beat Rogers State 69-40 in an exhibition game Sunday at Bud Walton Arena. Four Razorbacks scored in double figures, but a collaborative defensive effort by the Hogs stole the show. The team forced 36 turnovers and held Rogers State to 29.8% shooting for the game. Sophomore guard Calli Berna and junior forward Keira Peak set the tempo on defense early for a team that ranked No. 8 nationally in scoring defense last season. The hogs opened up the game in full court pressure and never let off the Hillcats from Rogers State. Constant pressure forced the Hillcats into 18 turnovers in the first half alone. 21 of the Razorbacks’ 30

first half points came off of turnovers. Sarah Watkins, one of the premier shot blockers in the Southeastern Conference last season, finished with a block against RSU. On offense, the Hogs fed the ball to the post Watkins and forward Quistelle Williams, as the two simply had too much size and strength for Rogers State to compete with. Williams finished with a team high 14 points in only 19 minutes of playing time, while Watkins finished with 10 points on 5-7 shooting from the field. Melissa Wolff and Joey Bailey also gave valuable minutes off the bench at the post positions for the Razorbacks. Williams continued to build on her strong performances at the end of last season, when she led the team in scoring in the team’s two NCAA Tournament games in March. The senior appears to be the Razorbacks’ top scoring threat headed into the ‘12-’13

season. In the second half, the Razorbacks continued to pour it on RSU. The offense constantly pushed the ball up the court, creating plenty of open shot opportunities. They also knuckled down even more on defense, allowing only six points in the first 11 minutes of the second half. All the open shots made it easy for the Razorbacks to heat up from behind the arc in the second half, with three of the team’s four three pointers coming from junior forward Dominique Robinson, who finished with 10 points off the bench. The Hillcats are ranked No. 9 in the preseason National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Poll, giving the Razorbacks a solid challenger in exhibition play. Next up for the Razorbacks is another exhibition against Jackson State in Fayetteville Friday, Nov. 9th. The regular season tips off at the University of Tulsa Thursday, Nov. 15th.

COMMENTARY

Problems a Coach Like Alabama’s Saban Can Fix

Haley Markle Asst. Sports Editor It probably doesn’t even need to be said, but enduring a losing season like the one the Razorbacks are in the midst of is absolutely awful. Unfortunately, I can’t say I

see the Hogs getting wins in two of the last three games and making a bowl. Even worse, I don’t see it getting that much better next year. There is good news, though. Like anything else, college football works in cycles. Good teams don’t stay at the top forever. Just two short years ago, Auburn went undefeated and won the National Championship. Now the Tigers are 2-7, and unless they can upset either Georgia or Alabama, they will finish the season without a Southeastern Conference win. Many college football fans seem to think LSU has never had a really bad season, but in

the late ‘90s, they had seasons with only three and four wins. Sometimes teams get worse because they lose players to graduation or the draft. Sometimes they get better because a young star has a breakout season. Other times, it has everything to do with the coach. The Alabama Crimson Tide is a perfect example of this. Believe it or not, the Tide have not always been national title contenders. In the 2003-2004 season, Alabama went 4-9. Their only SEC wins came against Kentucky and Mississippi State. The next year, the Tide improved to 6-6 and lost to Minnesota in the Music City Bowl

20-16. Alabama posted a 10-2 record in the 2005-2006 season before falling back into mediocrity the next two seasons. In the 2006-2007 season, the Tide went 6-7 and lost to Oklahoma State in the Independence Bowl. Then Nick Saban arrived in Tuscaloosa, Ala.. In his first year, the team made only slight improvement and finished 7-6 with a win over Colorado in the Independence Bowl. Then Saban produced the largest win increase from year one to year two in school history. In 2008-2009, the Tide went undefeated in the regular season before losing to Geor-

gia in the SEC championship game and Utah in the Sugar Bowl. Since then, the Crimson Tide have gone 45-4 and won two National Championships. In football, coaching matters more than in many other sports. Fans have seen that in both the NFL and in college football this season. Without head coach Sean Payton, the Saints have started the season with a 2-5 record. Even after the firing of Bobby Petrino, expectations remained sky high for the Razorbacks, who have since gone 4-5. The future of the Razorbacks rests in the hands of

athletic director Jeff Long and whoever he hires to be the next head coach. If Long hires a guy that can both recruit and coach up talent to compete against the seemingly unlimited number of five-star recruits Alabama brings in, then the future can be very bright for Razorback football. If that doesn’t happen, Razorback fans could be in for a few long seasons. Haley Markle is the Assistant Sports Editor for the Arkansas Traveler. Her column appears every Monday.

Razorbacks Drop a Pair of Conference Road Games Liz Beadle Staff Writer

The set was tied for the last time in the set at 23 then the Razorbacks scored the final two points to take a 1-0 lead in the match. The Razorbacks scored first in the second set as well but then the Aggies rallied to take a 10-5 lead early in the set, forcing head coach

Robert Pulliza to call a timeout. The Razorbacks chipped away some but the Aggies maintained their lead to win the second set by a score of 25-19. Jasmine Norton had seven kills in the third set but it was not enough. The Aggies won the set 25-18. The Aggies won six of the final eight points in that set. The fourth set was tied at 12 at one point but then the Aggies went on an 8-1 run to establish their lead. The Aggies eventually won the set and finished off the match.
