The Vandalance, owned by former Delta Chi fraternity members, serves as a tailgate vehicle. It currently sits in the parking lot behind Patty’s Kitchen off Sixth Street.
Saving tailgate traditions Former Delta Chi silver, gold Vandalance vehicle on sale John Fish Argonaut
For $1,800 one lucky person could be the new owner of the iconic Vandalance that is currently owned by former members of Delta Chi fraternity. The price is negotiable and the vehicle is already detailed in Vandal colors. The
Vandalance was an old ambulance that has since been transformed into a black, silver and gold vehicle with Vandalance written on the side in the iconic Vandal lettering that is also on the university’s logo. Former Delta Chi members Cody Earl, Bret Lytle and Marshall Breish said the Vandalance is a University of Idaho tailgating machine that was purchased with aspirations of turning it into one of the coolest vehicles in the UI parking lot during tailgates. “Our freshman year in Delta Chi a couple
older members bought it in Grangeville and brought it up to Delta Chi to have it as a tailgating vehicle, and they put money into it to do the detailing and design and stuff like that and they didn’t have enough money to keep the renovations going,” Earl said. Lytle said he has some fond memories of tailgating in the vehicle and the older members who owned it during his freshman year. “Our second or third home game my freshman year I remember going out and seeing older members hanging out and
blasting music by the Vandalance,” Lytle said. “I went over and hung out with them. It was a pretty good time.” Earl said the Vandalance has a lot of potential and another fraternity or lone buyer could buy it and complete the transformation of the old ambulance into the tailgating machine it could be. He said it would be nice to see it traveling the roads of Moscow and at tailgating once again. SEE TAILGATE, PAGE 5

Library to host self-published, mini magazine workshop Erik Fink Argonaut
Most people go to a library to read books and magazines, but University of Idaho students will get the chance to create a magazine of their own. The UI Library will host a workshop on May 1 to teach participants how to
make a Zine. Anne Gaines, library assistant at the UI Library, said a Zine is a self-published mini magazine. She said it is like a blog but more current. “Basically I will be leading the workshop and I will be helped by Sarah VanGundy,” Gaines said. “I will start by giving a general
overview of what a Zine is.” Gaines said she will teach participants the aspects that make a good Zine. She said the content that makes a good Zine depends on the audience. “I personally like a lot of comics in my Zines,” Gaines should focus on is making their Zine visually interest-
ing so it can catch people’s attention and make them want to read it. The other big step is including interesting subject matter, something interesting to read or learn about.” Sarah VanGundy will assist Gaines with the workshop. VanGundy said it is possible for Zines to become
full magazines. “Basically when a Zine becomes a magazine is when they start accepting advertising,” VanGundy said. VanGundy said the workshop will give participants a better understanding of how

Information about funeral arrangements will be announced as soon as they are available.

While traveling in Italy during spring break, I tried all kinds of food. The odd sounding, the different, the typical â€Ś and the so-goodyour-mouth-waters food. An Italian staple I hadnâ€™t heard of, until I spotted it on nearly every menu was Fagioli allâ€™uccelletto â€” pretty much white beans in tomato sauce. The pairing sounded boring, but I was wrong.

A day to celebrate the future Moscow celebrates Arbor Day by planting trees, informing the public of the benefits of trees Allison Griffith Argonaut
Trees offer many values to society, both Rauk of the Moscow Tree Commission while addressing citizens April 26 for Arbor Day. This year was the 20th year Moscow celebrated Arbor Day, and the city and Chamber of Commerce teamed up to have trees have for society. Jim Fazio, University of Idaho professor emeritus of the College of Natural Resources, and with public health, simply by providing shade and protection from the sun. On top of protecting people from the sun, trees help patients in the hospital. He said patients who have views of trees and landscape spend 80 percent fewer days in the hospital, and use less pain medications because they are more relaxed. Relaxing effects of trees also work for people who are driving. He said having trees line sides of streets and in center dividers calm people down. “Trees have a relaxing effect on commuters,” Fazio said. “And I’m not making this Fazio also said when housing projects have trees and other landscaping there tends to be less domestic violence and fewer criminals.
“This isn’t because trees exude some chemical, though it would be great if they did,” he said. “They instead encourage outdoor play, bicycling and walking.” Gina Taruscio, executive director of Moscow Chamber of Commerce, said trees make people pause and talk to each other. Fazio said trees could also lower energy costs, reducing bills by 30 to 50 percent, increase resale value of property and attract tourists. Liam Donohoe | Argonaut

Moscow residents alongside Mayor Nancy Chaney and members of the Moscow City Council plant a tree Friday in Friendship Square in commemoration of Arbor Day.
Trees will help to expand the perceived downtown area as well, which will help with the economy of Moscow businesses, Mayor Nancy Chaney said. The city will place more trees, benches and other items throughout different parts of downtown to make those areas friendlier, she said. Increasing the amount of trees in the city is not new for Moscow. For the past 20 years Moscow has received a Tree City USA Award, said David Stephenson, the manager of Idaho Department of Lands.

that,” he said. For 15 out of the last 20 years Moscow has also received the Tree City USA Gold Award for going beyond the basics by creating education programs for staff, developing a booklet of the street trees in Moscow and by doing many other tree related tasks. Chaney said having trees in the city not improves air quality, energy conservation and public health. and more than 1 million trees were planted that day, and now it has spread across the country and the world.
“One of the things I think is kind of interesting about Arbor Day, when you think about holidays in general, they tend to memorialize things that happen in the past,” Stephenson said. “Arbor day is unique in that it celebrates the future.” To help celebrate the future, ambassadors from the Chamber of Commerce, Moscow High School students and members of the city helped to plant a tree across from Friendship Square. Rauk said they were also giving away tree seedlings for people to take home and plant. Each of the trees also had a paper with information on how to care for them. firstname.lastname@example.org
Bike to Boise: 300 miles spanning two days for Redside Foundation Michelle Gregg Argonaut
The drive from Moscow to Boise can be long, boring and at one point may involve getting stuck behind a truck or two. Biking the road from Moscow to Boise however, is an entirely different experience — one the men of Delta Sigma Phi are more than familiar with thanks to their annual “Bike to Boise”
philanthropy event. The fraternity members started the ride April 25 and arrived in Boise April 26, where they ended on the steps of the Capitol building. At noon on April 27, a check with money from donations was presented to the selected charity, the Redside Foundation. The 295.2 mile and involved the help of
about 50 fraternity members who took turns riding a tandem bicycle, while the remainder of the house followed in a vehicle caravan, which featured a banner that included the logos of the businesses that donated to the philanthropy.

“It had potential to be something that Delta Chi was known for and I think that anyone who bought it right now could make it a trademark of their fraternity. They would carry on the UI tradition of tailgating before Vandal football games,” Earl said. Earl said the owners had envisioned turning the vehicle into a portable bar that they could bring to tailgates and they wanted to decorate the inside with UI decorations. He said they also planned to use it as a portable storage unit for all of Delta Chi’s tailgating gear like tables, chairs and a barbeque. Earl said they wanted the Vandalance to be a vehicle that everyone could gather around at, have a good time and create valuable college memories. For anyone who is interested in seeing the vehicle, it is currently parked in the parking lot behind Patty’s Kitchen, and is easy to spot. Just look for the big UIthemed painted ambulance.

Immigration: More than statistics allison griffith Argonaut
Every year the United States government says it will look at its immigration every year it pushes immigration reform back, said Jesse Martinez, the adviser for Movimiento Activista Social. “This year it is actually happening,” he said. This year there are eight members of Congress who created a draft of an immigration reform bill, and the nation is trying to raise awareness, Martinez said. University of Idaho’s student organization MAS is hosting a rally, along with many other organizations across the nation, on May 1. Martinez said there will be rallies in Boise and Idaho Falls — along with many other cities — to get the word out about the bill. “Our main hope with this rally is to really have people see the humanistic approach,” he said. “A lot of times we see numbers and statistics, pros and cons of reform, but it will be great for people to grants go through.” Martinez said the main purpose of the undocumented to become American citizens, because right now there is no way. There are 11.5 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S., he said, and many of them were brought here when they

Cowan said when the administrators saw the request, they decided they were not going to allocate that space as a student lounge. Assistant Vice-President of Facilities Brian Johnson said the committee is made up of the university’s four vice-presidents and the executive director of budget and planning. He said while he was not in on the decision making process, he was tapped to serve as the messenger. He said as he understands that the committee doesn’t yet know what they will do with the space and are consequently hesitant to commit to set plans. Johnson said the committee mentioned they want to remodel the College of Education Building, which would displace employees, and they had interest as using the space in the Commons for swing space during the remodels. Johnson said the remodel could take up to two years, but they don’t yet have a start date because the university doesn’t have funding for the

She said she the administration doesn’t know what to do with the space in the meantime. “The only thing that could go in there would have to be able to be very temporary because everything is still kind of up in air,” Johnson said. Earl said he was unsatisinformal response, which came in the form of an email from Johnson. “I thought it was unprofessional and disrespectful to one of their students. Granted they are administration and probably have bigger things on their plate than a student lounge,” Earl said. “But when you are representing the students it would be nice to give them some sort of feedback as to any thing else we could do. I still have yet to hear anything from anyone on the committee.” Earl said he thinks the space being used as a lounge makes a lot of sense because the current Overlook Lounge is noisy and interrupts interviews in the Career Center. “When companies like Boeing come in and interview students for potential

to have a pool ball smacking around in the background,” Earl said. “The idea would be to move this area downstairs so the Career Center would be the place you can go in your suit and tie and have a more formal interview. The Overlook Lounge would become more of a quiet study space as well, and downstairs could be more of a place to hang out and be loud.” Earl said he felt the lack of response showed the administration’s willingness to disregard the voice of the students. “I’m graduating so it isn’t the end of the world for me but I want to bring it to student’s attention because student’s should have a voice,” Earl said. “A lot of this stuff is happening behind closed doors so student’s don’t know about it. If students know there is potential to have a lounge I think they would be very well for that rather than a swing space that either sits open or is used as Cowan said he thought the students should have more say in how space should be allocated in the Commons because their student fees go to upkeep for the building.
were little and had no choice, but have to face multiple barriers in creating a life here. Martinez said often when immigration reform is brought up people automatically think the borders will open and anyone will be allowed in. He said that is not the case, though, as the government can implement timelines or other restrictions regarding how undocumented immigrants can become legal citizens.

She said the main purpose of the May 1 rally is to mobilize and inform the people about the reform policies America has. Hopefully that will bring people together to make some changes in the immigration reform policies, she said.

Gonzalez knows that there is a lot of controversy surrounding the topic of immigration reform, but thinks that once people see then human, emotional side people might be more open to the idea. The rally will have multiple speakers who will share their stories and testimonies, she said. She said they have a few undocumented immigrants who are students that are looking forward to sharing their story. Also, faculty and staff who are big advocates of social movements will share their struggles and success in the U.S. as an illegal immigrant or from an immigrant background. The rally starts at 5:30 p.m. May 1 in the courtyard of the Idaho Commons, and Martinez said there will be a few speakers to help motivate the people before they begin the march to Friendship Square. At Friendship Square there will be a few more speakers, and then people are encouraged to head to the Kenworthy Theatre for a screening of the documentary “The Dream is Now.” Martinez said this rally is connected to the national government, but also to the lives of the undocumented immigrants who are living in America. He said they are marching for reform as well as for other people, and that everyone is welcome.

Mile-high bummer Men’s tennis falls short of its first WAC title after losing to Denver in the final match Anthony Kuipers Argonaut
One of the most prolific seasons in Idaho men’s tennis history came to an abrupt end this past weekend. The No. 2 seed Vandals fell to No. 1-seeded Denver 4-0 in the championship match of the Western Athletic Conference Tournament Sunday in Denver. For the second time in two seasons, Idaho came
up just short in its attempt to capture the program’s first WAC title. Idaho lost to Fresno State in the final match one year ago. With the win, Denver earned an automatic berth into the NCAA Tournament May 16-27 in Urbana, Ill. Idaho ended its season with a 21-7 overall record, the best in at least 20 years for the program. Beaman said falling
short of the title for the second straight year was difficult to swallow, but he said he told the team they should be proud of how much they’ve accomplished in the last three months. “I just told the guys: in life, you get opportunities – some good and some bad. You just have to put it all out there,” Beaman said. Idaho seemed poised to
make school history after an impressive performance in its first match of the tournament. After losing four of its last six matches of the regular season, Idaho seemed to regain its winning form in the semifinal match against Texas-San Antonio on Saturday, which the Vandals won 4-2. UTSA beat the Vandals 4-3 in Idaho’s last regular season match, but this time Idaho played
with the same lineup it had for most of the season before injuries shook up the roster. Seniors Abid Akbar and Marius Cirstea paired up for the first time in six matches at the No. 1 doubles spot, where they earned an 8-5 victory. Junior Jose Bendeck and sophomore Cristobal Ramos Salazar lost 8-5 at No. 2, but sophomores Dmitry Perevoshchikov
A decent end to a decent season
Vandals pull first-round upset, fall in WAC semis to hosts Denver Aaron Wolfe Argonaut
The Idaho women’s tennis team, fifth-seeded underdogs at the conference tournament, saw its Western Athletic Championship dreams crushed Friday with a 4-0 loss to top-seeded hosts Denver in the semifinals. The team reached the semifinals after avenging a 4-2 regular season loss with an impressive 4-2 quarterfinal win against Texas-Arlington the day before. Unfortunately the team met its match after Denver defeated No. 8-seeded New Mexico State with ease, 4-0. The Vandals’ No. 1 doubles first-team All-WAC duo of Almudena Sanz and Victoria Lozano entered the semifinals with a 7-0 record in WAC regular season play. After a win in the quarterfinals Sanz and Lozano had won 12 consecutive doubles matches with a 14-4 record on the season. It still wasn’t enough. For Denver, it was the Pioneers’ three graduating stars’ time to shine. Sophia Bergner and Steffi Rath snapped Idaho’s No.1 doubles win streak with an 8-6 win. As the primary No. 1
doubles role players for the past two years the two posted a 19-9 record this season to lead the Pioneers. Ironically, in a 6-1 loss to Denver earlier on in the season Sanz and Lozano defeated Bergner and Rath in doubles 8-6, contributing to Idaho’s only point of the match. Idaho’s two elite stars had no luck against Denver and neither did the rest of the team. Rita Bermudez and Bety Flores went down 8-4 at No. 3 and every Vandal singles attempt resulted in a straight-set loss or unfinished match. Freshman Belen Barcenilla fought hard at No. 5 singles with a 6-3 second set win after dropping the first set but did not finish her third set. Flores did not finish at No. 4, Lozano did not finish at No. 1 singles despite a close 7-6 loss in her first set and Sanz lost 6-1, 6-4, against Denver’s Caroline Schnell at No. 2. Constance Alexander lost 6-1 in her first set followed by a 6-0 loss in her second set against Denver’s leading doubles player and senior Emma Isberg at No. 3. Idaho’s SEE DECENT, PAGE 10
and Cesar Torres clinched the point by winning the No. 3 match 8-5. Ramos Salazar helped Idaho get off to a strong start in the singles matches by cruising to a two-set win at No. 6. Then UTSA went on to win the next two matches after Cirstea lost at No. 3 and Perevoshchikov fell at No. 1. The Vandals sealed the victory SEE MILE-HIGH, PAGE 10

thanks to Bendeck’s win at No. 4 and Torres’ win at No. 5. Idaho then ran into a buzz saw on Sunday in the championship match against Denver. After winning the doubles point, the Pioneers put the Vandals away quickly by winning three straight singles matches. Idaho’s only victory came during the No. 1 doubles match when Akbar and Cirstea earned an 8-5 win. Perevoshchikov and Torres lost 8-4 at No. 3 and Bendeck and Ramos Salazar were narrowly
edged out 9-8 at No. 2. Beaman said barely losing the doubles point “definitely changed the whole dynamic of the match.” “I think that some of the air went out of their sails after that doubles match,” Beaman said. With the doubles point, Denver wasted no time winning the necessary three singles matches to seal the championship. Ramos Salazar lost at No. 6, Perevoshchikov fell at No. 1 and Cirstea lost at No. 3. All matches finished in two sets. The No. 2, No. 4 and No. 5 matches went unfinished. Idaho received good news before

After defeating Louisiana Tech in a tight 4-2 victory during the semifinals, the Spartans pulled off a 4-3 upset against Denver on their home courts to claim the 2013 WAC Championship title. Idaho finished the season above .500, with a 13-12 record. Last season the Vandals fin-
ished 19-8 but were also defeated in the WAC Tournament semifinals against former WAC foe Hawaii. The Vandals will say goodbye to Montana transfer and graduating senior Constance Alexander. Alexander posted an impressive streak of doubles wins earlier on in the season giving the Vandals momentum for an extraordinary turnaround after a 0-4 start. Idaho’s top scorers Sanz, Lozano and Flores have one season remaining as Barceoff their rookie seasons, gaining more valuable experience along the way and will hope for better luck next year.

no survivors. The topic of mental illness is far-reaching and complex, considering the degree of severity for individuals. For many, a person must commit a crime to get services. Currently Idaho’s state prison system is the de facto treatment facility, where approximately 25 percent of state incarcer-
ated individuals receive psychotropic medication. Imagine a statewide mental health system where those afflicted with mental illness can access care in early stages and receive treatment. Imagine our society treating those with mental illness — adults and children — with dignity, respect and compassion.
Imagine Idaho’s legislature making mental health a priority. Imagine no stigma associated with mental illness. These are things to consider during Mental Health Awareness month.
