WU tackles Sioux LEGO before Mulvane goes Mariauna Hernandez
The Washburn Ichabods traveled to South Dakota this past Thursday night and received their first victory of the season against the University of South Dakota Sioux Falls Cougars, 33-17. The releases of two key players caused speculation and criticism as to whether or not the team would be able to recover, but Washburn head coach Craig Schurig knew otherwise. “The biggest thing is we feel like we have good players here with us,” said Schurig. “So I think our guys played the way they expected to play. Obviously the first game you’re going to have some mistakes, but overall, particularly the first half, they played pretty well.” One player in particular had the best performance of his career, Washburn senior quarterback, Dane Simoneau. Simoneau was 27 for 40 throwing for 452 yards, accompanied by five touchdowns, three of which came
Picture this: colorful, tiny, and intricate interlocking building bricks. Now think of thousands of these bricks and what can be built with them. Then go to the Mulvane Art Museum and see what Nathan Sawaya can do with them. “The Art of Brick” exhibit at the Mulvane is only available until Sept. 18, when the museum as a whole will temporarily close. Improvements, investments and looking forward to the future are all in mind for the Mulvane Art Museum. Heating and cooling replacement, along with the addition of vestibules, are needed to help control the temperature and humidification levels. “You have to have certain temperature ranges and certain humidification ranges, and right now our equipment is not able to give us those conditions that we require,” said Cindi Morrison, director of the Mulvane Museum of Art. The proper temperatures to main-

Cartoons aren’t art. He’s heard it many times, but he’s never let the preconceived notions of others determine how he defines himself and his work. In his mind, Chris Marshall is an artist. “When I was a kid and had chicken pox, I used to lay on the floor with socks on my hands and draw Sesame Street and XMen cartoons,” said Marshall, who graduated from Washburn in 2009 with a B.A. in mass media. “My parents always told me they were great drawings, even though they were probably terrible. So I think that’s probably what motivated me to keep drawing, even beyond the age when most people decide to grow up and stop making cartoons.” But Marshall didn’t stop. He made more, hundreds more. Today, Marshall is the owner of TheMarshallArtist. com, a website displaying many of his cartoons and graphic illustrations—most of which are sports-related and contain his unique and often blunt sense of humor. The site, which launched Aug. 17, 2011, is just one of many websites launched recently that are owned and operated by Washburn graduates. With an already loyal fan base of Washburn students and alums, he now looks to expand his following worldwide. But behind every great website is an even better story. His First Fans “As soon as Chris could hold a crayon, he started drawing,” said Alice Marshall, proud mother. “We drew with him and read when he would do his breathing treatments for asthma. Drawing on his own started when he was about 18 months old. We just let him draw away and put the drawings up on the refrigerator, stove, and anything that a magnet would stick to.” Chris Marshall’s drawing ability developed as a toddler, continuing to grow as he went through schooling. When he started preschool, his teachers would talk to his parents about his talent. As he moved into elementary school, the praise continued for his work. Many teachers noticed the doodles he’d draw in his notes and books. “Growing up, a lot of my teachers appreciated the cartoons I’d draw in the margins of papers and books,” said Chris Marshall. “They kind of encouraged me as long as I got good grades and pretended I was paying attention. My mom is also an elementary school teacher, and she’s saved all the cartoons I’ve had published in a scrapbook. She watches more sports than most people I know, so I think she gets the humor in it.” Others began to take notice of his talents, as well. One year, Crayola put out an ad asking for designs for T-shirts. His family submitted some of Chris’ draw-

Marshall Arts: Washburn graduate Chris Marshall has continued to make cartoons even after his career as the Washburn Review cartoonist. His artwork can now be viewed at his new website, TheMarshallArtist.com. ings, and they soon received T-shirts with his drawings on them. In 2000, the Kansas City Wizards MLS team had a drawing contest. Chris entered one of his drawings into the contest, which then won him and his family a trip to Washington, D.C., to see the MLS Championship. They got to tour the White House, the Capitol Building and, to top it all off, the Wizards won the championship. “His cartoons are pretty amazing,” said Eric Smith, fraternity brother and co-worker at the Topeka Capital-Journal. “I enjoy the sports ones especially. Those and the ones about inside jokes in daily life. The things he can do with Microsoft Paint and whatever he uses on the Mac are inexplicably awesome. His cartoons are going to make him famous someday.” Early Criticism However, not everyone was a fan of his art. “One of his primary grade teachers actually told him he was holding his pencil wrong when he wrote or drew, but we just kind of ignored that,” said Alice Marshall. “We wanted to support the teachers, so we just kind of overlooked the pencil holding thing.” As he continued through the educational system, the criticism of his art became more and more prevalent. “I had a lot of high school and college art teachers tell me cartoons aren’t real art,” said Chris Marshall. “It doesn’t really bother me. If the stick
houses outside the Mulvane Art Museum are considered art, then I don’t really want to make art anyway. My goal was never to make pictures that would be in a museum or something. I just enjoy drawing pictures that hopefully make people laugh. It’s like the dad in Step Brothers said, ‘Never lose your dinosaur.’ Drawing is something I’ve always liked to do and I want to keep doing it as long as I can.” The College Years “When I first met Marshall, I thought he was a little shy and reserved,” said Smith. “It didn’t take long for him to open up and be the jokester that I know today.” A f t e r graduating from Washburn Rural High School, Chris Marshall enrolled at Washburn University and became a member of the Delta Chi fraternity. It was at Washburn where his cartoons began to gain notoriety. He applied at The Review in May 2006 a s a writer, but despite his award-winning writing, it was his cartoons that drew the attention of The Review’s readership. Each week, “Marshall Arts” was published in the sports section, and soon his cartoons drew praise even from collegiate judges. “When I was on The Review, we were named the best college newspaper for fouryear colleges in Kansas,” said Marshall, who earned third

place and honorable mention awards for sports writing from the Kansas Association of Collegiate Press. “That same year, I think I won first, second and honorable mention for best cartoons. That was pretty exciting for the paper and for me.” Outside of The Review and his fraternity obligations, Marshall also worked for the Campus Activities Board and often made posters for the Washburn Student Government Association. While in college, he also interned and eventually got a part-time job as a sports clerk for the Topeka Capital-Journal. His drawings eventually made their way to the TCJ, as well, though after a few controversial cartoons he was asked not to draw any more. “My favorite cartoon is probably one I drew for the Capital-Journal during the 2008 Olympics,” he said. “It was a picture of Michael Phelps swimming, and it said his motivation to win races was his father, Fred. Then I drew Fred Phelps running alongside the pool with a sign that said ‘God Hates Silver.’ I got a lot of angry letters for it, saying things like ‘Michael Phelps is never coming to Topeka now,’ as if he would ever come here in the first place. But I thought it was a good way to relate the biggest athlete in the world at the time to things that were happening locally.” Back to the Present Currently, Chris Marshall is a full-time employee of the Topeka Capital-Journal. He has been allowed to draw an occasional cartoon, though editorial supervision is required. His website is about ready to celebrate its first month of existence, and he already had more than 40 Facebook followers on his fan page, www.facebook. com/themarshallartist. “I love his cartoons,” said
Alice Marshall. “He comes up with some ideas that amaze me. I also like his writing that connects to the cartoons. It’s great to see the fun he has with sports, cartoons, and writing.” Along the way, he has made memories and friends while illustrating his unique perspective on life through art and writing. “Marshall has inspired me to laugh... a lot,” said Smith. “He is one of the funniest people I know. Also, I guess you could say he has inspired me to love sports more. We both enjoy going to pretty much any sporting event, and without Marshall, I would not have attended KU bowl games, Sporting KC games or the College World Series.” Now, he looks to prove those who questioned his art wrong, and to take his talents to South Beach... and the rest of the world, via the internet. “After leaving Washburn, I didn’t really have a place to put the cartoons where people could see them,” said Chris Marshall. “The website is just a way for me to keep drawing sports cartoons and give people an easy way to see them. Hopefully someone will eventually give me a chance to draw them again, where they can be published and more people can see them, but for now it’s been fun just throwing them all online whenever I draw something. “I’ve tried to draw a new one every couple of days since I started the website last month. I thought it would be more difficult to come up with stuff regularly, but there’s always guys like Kobe [Bryant] and [Ron] Artest out there to do stupid stuff and make it easier for me.” Josh Rouse is a senior mass media major.

WSGA Freshman Elections Jordan Loomis
It’s that time of year again, when the door-to-door visitations start and campaign ads begin to show up in every mailbox, Washburn Student Government Association’s 2011 freshman elections are underway. WSGA Chief-ofStaff Eric Benedict, a junior majoring in political science and economics, stated that in the freshmen elections, 30 petitions are usually turned in to be on the ballad but this year it’s 10 petitions. That means that 10 students are bidding for five freshmen spots in WSGA. Some of the current candidates running for freshman senate are Zachary Phillips, Micah Offerman, Anthony Ho, Bryce Ruble, Katherine Bunting, Anthony Everett and Randi McAfee. To become a representative in student government, a candidate needed to pick up a petition from the student government office in the basement of the Memorial union. The candidate would then have to obtain 50 freshman

I feel that politics is a realm where I’m confident, where there’s more room to grow as a student and stand for something. I believe that getting a chair in the WSGA would help me meet some of my fellow classmates and help me build a better sense of community.”

Anniversary of 9/11 drives home lessons
In four days the 10th anniversary of September 11, 2001, will come and go. Many will spend next Sunday taking in the start of the NFL season. While there is nothing wrong with spending a weekend living the life of a normal September afternoon, I hope that everyone will take time Sunday to show their respect for those who perished. To that end, The Review asked in our â€œBod on the Streetâ€? what memories stuck with people 10 years later. I think it only fair then that I also partake in the sharing and give my thoughts on what many think of as the worst day in American history and the impact itâ€™s had. I recall that morning waking up to my aunt Carolyn shaking me awake. She told me that a plane had crashed into a building in New York City. I came upstairs half awake wondering what had happened. As I sat down on the couch, I listened as Matt Lauer, cohost of NBCâ€™s â€œToday Showâ€? described what I was looking at on the screen. About the time that Lauer started talking about the structural integrity of the building, I looked up and saw the second plane hitting the World Trade Center. I immediately thought of all the people on board those planes and the tragic loss of life that was occurring right before my eyes. As the morning wore on reports began to break about another plane hitting the Pentagon in Washington D.C.. That particular event hit
home for me personally. My father at that time was living in the northern Virginia area and worked in the District of Columbia. The truly frightening part was that on his daily commute, he would pick up a connecting bus at the stop in front of the Pentagon. That morning, he was in the company of his dentist having gone in to get a routine cleaning. Its probably the closest to having a nervous wreck that Iâ€™ve ever experienced, not knowing where my father was or if he was okay. As the day continued to progress I went to work and listen to President Bush talk about what had occurred. Now, as I reflect back on that day, A few things come to mind. The effects that 9/11 had on our day-to-day lives. I am old enough to remember when you could go to a Kansas City Royals game and no one would blink an eye at someone carrying a diaper bag or purse into a game. I remember when going to the airport required you to put your bag through the X-ray machine but you didnâ€™t have to show an ID or take off your shoes, belt and empty your pockets just to get into the terminal. What I most remember in the immediate aftermath of 9/11 was the general feeling of community. At the time I worked in a service industry job and had become used to people treating me with a very â€œIâ€™m better than youâ€? attitude. After that day, for the next several weeks people seemed more prone to say thanks and not take each other for granted. That is the real message I will always take away from that day. Ten years have passed and I hope that people will remember that being decent to each other is a lesson that canâ€™t be forgotten. From all of that human tragedy, we should always remember that life and loved ones could be gone in the blink of an eye. Robert Burkett is a senior mass media major.

Schultz set for success Ben Mack
Lady Blues senior guard Stevi Schultz is looking to start this year’s basketball season off with a bang. The Neodesha, Kan., native is coming off a stellar 2010-11 season, where she averaged 15 points and eight rebounds per game. The 5’9 guard was a first team all-conference and second team all-region. She was also voted MVP of the Lady Blues squad this past season. Despite being named the MVP, Schultz doesn’t consider herself the “star” of the team. “I truly don’t see myself as ‘the star,’” said Schultz. “We all take certain roles on the team so we can win games and I am just taking the role that needs to be done. During games my teammates and I just play the game together. We worry about getting the win, not who the star is. There were many games last year that I was definitely not the star.” This season, Schultz will take on a larger leadership role which she said comes natural to her. “I do enjoy having a leadership role,” said Schultz.
“Leading is pretty natural for me. Having a leadership role doesn’t change my style of play. If I had to say it changes anything, it would be it changes my attitude. No matter what attitude I truly have, I must show a positive, determined attitude so others will follow the same attitude. Hopefully that will put us in a better position to win” Last year, the Lady Blues finished 22-7. The Blues have a majority of their roster returning and the first thing Schultz expects is to have a fun year, because everyone gets along and likes to play together. She also expects the team to push themselves on to bigger and better things. The Blues have everything they need to accomplish those goals with size, experience and a talented coaching staff that was revamped in the offseason. Last year, the Blues ended their season in the NCAA Tournament with a heartbreaking 65-64 loss to Central Oklahoma. It was the Lady Blues 10th straight appearance in the tournament.

The Topeka RoadRunners’ coaching staff was looking for strong performances from its newcomers and its veterans over its first weekend of exhibition games. Scoring 11 goals on Sunday can likely be considered a strong performance. A night removed from a 4-0 victory over the University of Central Oklahoma Bronchos, Topeka picked up where they left off, defeating Central Oklahoma 11-0 at Landon Arena. But unlike Saturday’s contest where Topeka only suited up three returners, Topeka had 10 veterans in the lineup on Sunday. Seven of them registered points in the contest. The RoadRunners outshot the Bronchos 52-8. “We gelled really well tonight,” said returning forward Kyle Sharkey, who had two goals in the contest. “A lot of guys worked really hard and it’s still a tryout for us.” In the first period, the Bronchos appeared to have escaped without substantial damage on the scoreboard. But during the final four minutes, Topeka scored three goals to increase their lead from 1-0 to 4-0 going into the first intermission. Ryan White, Sharkey, Ryan Doucet and Brian Christie all had first period goals. From there, the scoring continued, as Topeka scored four more goals in the second period. Defenseman Mic Bruce found the back of the net at 3:33. Forward Dan Dupell then followed with a goal at 5:16 and the onslaught continued 22 seconds later on a goal by defenseman Kevin Patterson. Forward Andrew O’Leary also

Scott Langer, Topeka head coach, was happy to see his players gel so quickly. “A lot of these guys haven’t worked together in lines, but it shows you that they’re picking up some of the principles that we are teaching,” said Langer. “We scored some goals and did some really good things coming from our zone out. I think it was a real good step in the right direction.” Sharkey, Jake Lynes and Linus Johannson finished off
the scoring in the third period. Johannson, who also had three assists on the night, is battling with Shigenobu Kakudate and Julian Van Lijden for the two spots for non-United States players on the roster. Johannson is from Sweden, Kakudate is f r o m Japan and Van Lijden is from The Netherlands. All three players had at least one point over the weekend. Of the 29 players who played over the weekend, only 25 of them will make the regu-
lar season roster. Langer and his staff have not made the final decisions on who will make the roster. He hopes this Wednesday and Thursday’s exhibition games at Amarillo will help with making those decisions. “We certainly can make a few more decisions,” said Langer. “Amarillo’s going to be a good test for us with all the veterans they have back. I think we can inch a little closer to some decisions, but there’s still guys battling for spots on this team.” Richard Kelly is a senior mass media and social work major.

If you do not have an opportunity to grab one of the big four quarterbacks (Rodgers, Brees, Vick or Brady) do not worry. There are several quarterbacks that will be there in the middle to late rounds that can be of great value this year. Philip Rivers (Yahoo! ADP 21.1): Philip Rivers is actually being selected in the middle of the second round in standard Yahoo 12-team leagues. He has been consistent over the last few years and it is hard to imagine any sort of drop-off this year. Rivers has several things going for him this year. The Chargers missed the playoffs last year and he is out to prove that the Chargers belong in the same company with the likes of Pittsburgh, New England and the New York Jets. The Chargers also play in the AFC West so that means Rivers will play two games against the Broncos, Raiders and Chiefs. This is the Chargers division to lose. Matthew Stafford (Yahoo! ADP 93.2): Although Matthew Stafford has never made it through a complete season he still has the tools to be a great quarterback. He also will be throwing the ball to Calvin Johnson, one of the best wide receivers in the game today. Stafford is currently going in the middle of the seventh round in Yahoo 12-team drafts. Stafford is the perfect risk-reward quarterback. If he can stay healthy for an entire season, he will give you great value. If you are one that does not like to take risks, consider the next quarterback on my list, Josh Freeman. Josh Freeman (Yahoo! ADP 93.7): Freeman is in his third season as the starting quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Although Tampa Bay is the youngest team in the league, they are full of talent. I expect Freeman to surpass last year’s numbers and lead this team to the playoffs. He is currently being drafted in Yahoo leagues somewhere in the middle of the seventh round of 12-team leagues. He can provide great value at the position if you elect to go running back and wide receiver heavy at the beginning of your draft. www.washburnreview.com

What happened to fair play in college football? Rob Burkett
With the beginning of football season comes some rather interesting story lines. While some local news regarding Washburn’s team has been of interest, the national landscape of college football has been in flux over the past few months. The recent announcement of Texas A&M moving conferences is just the latest in a long string of moves that has occurred over the last year. The PAC 10 is now the PAC 12. The Big 10 has 12 members and the Big 12 has nine members. With the continuing changes in the lineups of conferences the business of college football has begun to take a profound effect on how college football is viewed. Gone are the days of the amateur athlete who lived off the stipend given in the form of scholarships. This is seen in the incident at Ohio State University that broke in June. Multiple athletes were suspended five games for selling various items like conference championship rings and other items gifted by the university in honor of their athletic accomplishments. While technically the prop-
erty belonged to the athletes, the items sold and the profit from them were constituted as an “extra benefit” by the NCAA and prohibited under the collegiate classification of an amateur athlete. This incident ultimately led to the resignation of Jim Tressel, the head coach at OSU through his not reporting the incidents to authorities. That incident pales in comparison however to recent revelations that have come out of Coral Gables, Fla., home of the University of Miami Hurricanes. While undue alumni or booster influence has always been an issue in college sports, the exploits of Nevin Shapiro, a renegade booster, takes illegal benefits to a whole new level. Shapiro is already in prison for orchestrating a $930 million ponzi scheme. In over 100 hours of jailhouse interviews with investigators Shapiro described his interactions with the Miami football team. Over the course of the last eight years, Shapiro spent literally millions of dollars on benefits to athletes included but were not limited to cash, prostitutes, entertainment in his multimillion-dollar homes and yacht, paid trips to high-end restaurants and night-
clubs, jewelry, bounties for onfield play (including bounties for injuring opposing players), travel and, on one occasion, an abortion. Not since the 1980s and the pay for play scandal of Southern Methodist University has something of this scale been witnessed. In SMU’s case the “death penalty” was invoked as the school was banned from having a football program, ultimately leading to the destruction of their competitiveness as a team. Miami now faces a possibly similar fate which could destroy a program that was at one time one of the top football programs in the country. One hopes that all of these events that have taken place in just this year will have consequences for those involved that will deter future schools from hiding violations and caving to the pressures that others outside these programs are exerting on them.

Cougars can’t hang with Bods, lose 33-17 Continued from Page 1 team effort. I think I got tackled once or twice the whole game which is always nice. I give credit to the offensive line they did a nice job handling the pressure.” Early in the first quarter during WU’s first drive sophomore tight end Tore Hurst put Washburn on the board after a 10-yard reception. Senior running back Justin Cooper followed up with the second TD of the quarter with a 47-yard reception. Toward the final minutes of the first quarter sophomore wide receiver Matt Kobbeman would be the third Ichabod to complete a touchdown pass extending WU’s lead to 21-0. Opening the second quarter Sioux Falls’ sophomore quarterback, Carrington Hanna rallied the Cougars to Washburn’s 30-yard line, only to be intercepted by the first of two picks by WU senior linebacker Marty Pfannenstiel. After two first down drives the play resulted in Simoneau’s first interception of the season by the Cougar’s junior linebacker Eric Anderson. WU’s defense prevailed, forcing Sioux Falls to punt after a sack by senior defensive
end Cameron Jackson. After a scoreless quarter, WU’s Simoneau completed a 10-yard pass with 2:44 left in the half to sophomore WR DeJuan Beard for their fourth score of the game. Inside the two-minute warning, USF responded with a touchdown wrapping up the first half, 27-7. With a series of incomplete passes and rushes for negative yardage the beginning of the third quarter brought no good news or points to WU. USF would be the first to take a crack at the scoreboard with a touchdown reception by junior WR Jeremiah Oates. WU’s final TD would come in the last 18 seconds of the quarter with a reception by sophomore wide receiver Ronnell Garner. The last score of the game would be a field goal by Sioux Falls making the final score 33-17. Although the Ichabods dominated many aspects of the game, they also racked up a few turnovers as well as numerous penalties. Washburn’s next foe is Lincoln University at 7 p.m. Thursday at Yager Stadium. Mariauna Hernandez is a sopomore mass media major. Reach her at email@example.com.
Students ready for intramurals Ivy Marcus
Deadline for entries: Sept. 30th
For students who are always looking for something to do on campus, intramural sports are one thing to take into consideration, especially if they want to stay active. Intramurals are a great way for students to compete athletically without the higher competitive level of college sports. Team sports such as soccer and flag football are played, and individual sports, for instance tennis and badminton, are also available. The range of activities extends far beyond competitive sports, however, and students have the option to sign up for checkers, chess, “Wii Bowling,” table tennis, and even “Guitar Hero.” According to John Cummings, Student Recreation and Wellness Center Assistant Director, they are also a great way to socialize and get out to meet new people for both new and returning students. “Competing with someone on the same court or the same chessboard is a lot different than going up and trying to start a conversation in the dining hall where you don’t know anybody, which can be awkward,” said Cummings. Many of the intramural events take place during the afternoon. Team sports start at 3, 4 and 5 p.m. There are also evening events that begin after late classes have ended, at 8, 9 and 10 p.m. There are various sign-up deadlines for
intramurals, posted in the SRWC lobby, on posters in the Memorial Union and washburn.edu/getfit, as well as its Twitter and Facebook. Students can also sign onto teams for sports via imleagues.com. For Dave Clark, a senior political science major, and his fellow Sigma Phi Epsilon members, intramurals are about more than just the competition. While he participates in some team sports, Clark has also gotten involved with intramurals in other ways. “I’m in a fraternity, and the position that I hold requires me to set up our intramural teams,” said Clark. “So I get all of our teams set up and everybody signed onto the teams, and I play basketball and volleyball too.” Clark played basketball and volleyball in high school, and while he stopped playing in his last few years of school, he says it felt good to get back to playing again at a level that was less competitive and a little more fun. In addition it was one of the reasons he chose his position in his fraternity, because he both enjoyed intramurals and helping other students get involved with them. So, whether getting involved through student organizations or with a small group of friends...or competing all out at soccer or jamming at “Guitar Hero,” it’s never a bad idea to look into intramurals.

Apes gone wild LEGO before Mulvane goes
David Weins WASHBURN REVIEW
Continued from page 1 4,000 pieces of artwork in the current collection and on loan from other artists and institutions in the museum. Approximately 50 percent of the artwork includes works on paper. Even though the museum will be closed there is no doubt it will remain busy. During the repairs Morrison predicts Mulvane will be noisy, dusty and hot. The art lab will remain open so fall classes can continue as scheduled. The gift shop will be relocated, the decision of where to is still pending. “We hadn’t really planned on this, but it is good timing for us,” said Morrison.. “The other option was to close all next summer, and the summer is one of our busiest times during the year.” In just two months this summer, it was thought that “The Art of Brick” brought in more visitors than the museum Photo courtesy of apeswillrise.com

TPAC continues to shine

Entertainment Fixture: Topeka Performing Arts Center helps plan events throughout the year that bring high profile performers like comedian Lewis Black to the community. Black, a well known stand up comedian, will perform September 23 at TPAC.
Tanner Ballangee WASHBURN REVIEW The Topeka Performing Arts Center (TPAC) has been serving its city by “… providing for the advancement, promotion, presentation, and development of the arts to meet the diverse cultural and educational needs of our community,” as stated in their mission statement. This concept has prevailed at this location since as early as the late 1800s when the building was known as “The Municipal Auditorium.” Located at 214 S.E. Eighth Ave. in the core of downtown Topeka, Kan., TPAC now plays host to about 160 events a year, attracting roughly 61,000 people in 2010 alone. From what first stood as the site of the first building in Topeka with electric lights and indoor bathrooms, TPAC has gone through numerous changes and renovations to stand as the successful arts venue it is today. The original land where TPAC now resides first housed Col. George W. Veale and his family before it was demolished and rebuilt as a two-story civic building. The new building contained city offices, a fire station, and “The Municipal Auditorium,” which hosted shows that attracted lovers of music and the arts from all over. Starting with dance-band leader Paul Whiteman and his orchestra as its first performer, the Municipal Auditorium brought forth many wellknown names to the city of Topeka, such as Nat King Cole and even Elvis Presley.
Not only did the auditorium serve the community in regards to arts and entertainment, but it also helped the city’s citizens in its most dire times of need. Be it the great flood of 1951, where 1,500 people were fed and sheltered in the auditorium, or the disastrous tornado that tore through Topeka in 1961, like a real friend to its citizens, TPAC was there to provide a safe retreat. Despite seeing success with traveling performers, Broadway shows, trade shows, circuses, and even high school graduations, the auditorium ran into a threat in the 1980s with the opening of the Kansas Expocentre. To eliminate the need for competition, an ambitious and determined group of citizens and city officials came together and proposed a pivotal transformation for the auditorium, giving it a permanent stage and other adjustments to allow it to support those performing arts events that the Expocentre could not. The campaign was able to raise enough money to make the dream a reality and in 1987 the renovation of the auditorium began. The renovation of the building did great things for TPAC and it’s community: creating jobs for citizens of Topeka, enhancing the architectural dimensions of the building while still retaining it’s original style and character, altering its walls and seating for better hearing and viewing purposes, and giving it its new title: The Topeka Performing Arts Center. On March 23, 1991 the
Topeka Performing Arts Center was open to the public. The following 20 years brought many upscale events and big names to Topeka, such as blues guitar master B.B. King, country-singing superstar LeAnn Rimes, and comedicgenius Jerry Seinfeld. Ashley Schmidt, a senior business major at Washburn University, was able to attend a TPAC event that took place on April 24, 2010. The event featured Nate Phelps, an estranged son of radical media star and pastor of Westboro Baptist Church Fred Phelps, speaking about his controversial family. “It was really interesting and informative,” said Schmidt. “I found the speech that he gave to be really enlightening, because nobody really knew the truth about the inner workings of the family.” Nate Phelps’ performance brought many people to TPAC, causing the building to be slightly crowded. “I could still hear well, though,” said Schmidt. “It was still a good experience . . . I think that TPAC is a good staple in Topeka and I wish there were more venues like it.” Barbara Wiggins, Executive Director of TPAC, is the decision maker when it comes to events TPAC will host. Wiggins works with national promoters who bring the ideas for possible events to her, and she determines which of those will best suit Topeka and its surrounding area citizens. The TPAC staff will support Let’s Help’s fundraising efforts by co-hosting an upcoming
outdoor event featuring the music group from the 1970s, KC and the Sunshine Band. Wiggins, who says she is a fan of the ‘70s funk band, also explains that although she and her employees may be at every event TPAC hosts, they do not get to sit and watch them. “We don’t work in this industry to enjoy the events,” said Wiggins. Wiggins points out that not only does TPAC serve as a national touring house for Broadway shows, comedians, dance performances, and other such events, a safe-haven for Topeka’s citizens in times of despair, and a historic landmark, but also stands as an economic stronghold that keeps downtown Topeka flush with new faces. “Downtown businesses thrive because of events,” said Wiggins. The events that TPAC hosts not only bring in members of the Topeka community but also patrons from cities all over Kansas, throughout the Midwest, and at times from across the nation. These people stop at gas stations, eat dinner at restaurants, shop at the mall, and are putting money into the community and are boosting Topeka’s economy. Without TPAC, Topeka would lose all that incoming money and would suffer in that respect, said Wiggins.

Dressing to impress: interview wear Fall TV offers variety Jordan Chilcote Washburn REVIEW
It was once said clothes make the man, but has anyone ever really stopped wondered how true these words are? In a job interview clothes are just that. Clothes in a job interview, can really make or break the chance at a job. “Clothes are very important. They create the first impression for the person conducting the interview,” said Ian Mikkelsen, a Washburn student. It is all in the way you present yourself. College may help you present yourself through qualifications; however it will not always help an individual in the wardrobe department. So here are some helpful tips on the do’s and don’ts for interview dress. According to “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to the Perfect Job Interview”, there are two important questions when dressing for an interview: “1. Do you have clothing appropriate to the position, industry, company, and department in which you are seeking a job?” and “2. Is this clothing in excellent condition: clean, neat, in impeccable repair, and not obviously ‘dated’?” With these two questions in mind start looking towards the wardrobe. When getting ready for an interview keep in mind the job the interview is for. An interviewee would not want to show up to an interview with Wall Street in jeans and a polo and expect to be a stock broker. When getting ready for the interview “Job Interviews for Dummies” points out four ways you can learn how to find out the company you are applying for’s dress code: •“Visit the company’s Web

site and search for videos of employees. Check for beards, mustaches and long, loose hair.

However, if there is not a written dress code, one must go with their gut. “I’ll wear suit with dress shoes and a tie,” said Nic Campbell, a Washburn student. “You want something that looks professional and doesn’t stand out.” While this is a good base to start
with later in “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to the Perfect Job Interview”, the authors point out to “be aware that dark colors suggest authority, and that dark blue conveys the greatest degree of authority.” Now, this is great to know when picking out suits and spot jackets, nevertheless when it comes to the ladies, “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to the Perfect Job Interview” points out, “A close-toe pump with a 1-inch heel is the safe choice for an interview…. choose shoes that complement your suit and accessories.” Take this information into advisement but always try to pick what is best for the job.
