The Jaw 2009 

This past year, the '80s really 
came back into style. From 
frilly short skirts to legwarmers, 
the re-emergence of 80s stars 
like Motley Crue and Duran 
Duran, and even George Jr. in 
the White House, this year has 
really brought back the feel of 
the 1980s. That is why we chose 
a retro theme for the yearbook. 
Here is a throwback to what 
some would argue was one of 
the best decades.

Tulane Unites Students From 

the v\ferN 

At approximately 9 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 21, New Student Orientation at Tulane University commenced. Hundreds 
of nervous and excited freshmen moved into their dorms, met their roommates and experienced their first taste of 
independence. They were bombarded with the arduous tasks of learning their way around the campus, meeting new 
people and remembering to keep their IDs with them at all times. With the help of their Orientation Coordinators, 
Resident Advisors and respective colleges, these new students managed to get to know Tulane and have a great time 
all at once. 

New Student Orientation was organized by the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs, and more 
specifically, the Director of New Student Programs, Billye Potts. Even with the threat of rain hanging overhead 
and the fact that the University Center was under construction. Orientation went quite smoothly in this "year of 

During the four days devoted to Orientation, students were able to explore and learn more about Tulane through 
many informative and interesting programs. Some of the most popular activities were the presentation given by 
world-famous hypnotist Kevin Stone in McAlister Auditorium, Reily Rocks! and the Natchez Mississippi Riverboat 
Cruise. All of these programs, and countless more, encouraged students to meet new friends and classmates, get 
to know New Orleans and get involved at and excited about Tulane University. Many of the lectures and programs 
sponsored by Tulane during Orientation were also geared towards teaching the new New Orleans residents about 
both on and ofT-campus safety. Many conscientious students attended the Newcomb and Tulane College sponsored 
lecture "No Means No - What is Consensual Sex?" Also, because many students tended to go off campus at night, 
many lectures were geared towards alcohol and drug awareness. 

Orientation was also an enlightening academic experience for many of the students. Throughout the initial 
weeks of school students discussed their summer reading book. The Color of Water, with a Tulane professor and their 
hallmates, experiencing their first college "classroom discussion." The author, James McBride, was a guest lecturer 
for the student body later in the fall semester. Students also took placement tests, met with their academic advisors 
and took tours of the campus to learn where their classrooms were in anticipation of the beginning of classes on 

Just as Orientation encouraged students to become more comfortable with their new surroundings, it 
encouraged parents to discover how to let go of their newly self-governing children as well. Many of the programs 
were directed towards parents and "learning to let go." The President of Tulane University, Scott Cowen, held a 
reception for the parents, and some of the more well-liked programs for parents were the Parents as Partners series 
and the Letting Go Program for Parents. As a result of these programs, many of the parents left their children at the 
end of the weekend with more confidence in their children and Tulane University, coupled with less anxiety about 

By the start of classes. Orientation had allowed most of the new students to become confident and more 
comfortable with their new home for the next four years, leaving them ready to enjoy what was the beginning of 
what they hoped would be the best years of their lives.

Student Life 

I lousing & 


Residence halls provide a secure 
eMvlronwent for individual growth 

Allkum lairiJ.lliilv^h incoming fresfiman eagerly awaited their housing assignnnent coming to them in the mail. Who would 
be their roommate? What building would they be in? "It was really nerve-racking," shared Julie Wallack (fr., Newcomb). 

Tulane's uptown campus had six underclassman dormitories, each dorm having its perks. Monroe Hall just underwent 
renovations; Sharp Hall had a bustling lobby; Butler House provided a great study environment; Warren Hall had a busy rooftop 
hang-out. "The roof was our home away from home," said Lauren Klein (fr., Newcomb). Josephine Louise Hall had great space 
with in-room sinks and walk-in closets. Patterson House was substance free. If you asked any freshman which dorm was the 
best they would have been sure to claim their own. 

The biggest change this year in freshman housing was the renovation of Monroe Hall. Over one summer, the equivalent 
of three years of construction was completed. There was new carpet, ceiling tile and furniture. "The new mattresses were so 
comfortable," said Julie DeNeufville (fr., Newcomb). Those freshmen who requested Sharp Hall after hearing from upperclassmen 
that it was the nicer of the two, had some remorse. "I heard that Sharp was nice and Monroe was old, but Monroe was really 
nice and new," said Daniel Berke (fr., Tulane). But the good outweighed the bad: "Sharp had an awesome community though," 
said Berke. 

A unique living option was all-female housing, available in both Warren and Josephine Louise Hall. The girls that lived there 
loved it: "It was a really peaceful living environment," said Klein. Despite having slightly more rules about visitors, particularly 
males, the girls ended up forming close, familial relationships with one another. 

A pivotal characteristic of all freshmen living experiences was the Resident Advisors, upperclassmen who gave their time and 
sacrificed their living conditions to aid and guide incoming students. "My RA was a great resource; she always kept us informed 
about the best places to shop, eat and just have a good time," explained Megan Repine (fr., Newcomb). 

Dorm life was a key aspect of the freshman experience. It was where new students made many of their friends. No matter 
where each person ended up living, they had a great introduction to Tulane living, truly proving that every experience is what 

you make it.

AhHoal Activities Expo fathers New Support For 

Student OrganizatioHS 

An annual event, the Tulane Activities Expo w/as held in August on Newcomb Quad in an effort to get the freshmen involved 
in the Tulane community early. Although geared towards new students, the Expo provided opportunities for all students 
to become active in extracurricular activities. Sororities, fraternities, clubs, sports and other teams were all represented on 
the quad. 

One of the many club sports represented at the Activities Expo was Tulane Rowing. They had a table set up as well as 
members of the current team approaching people and promoting their sport. "I signed up on a whim, along with a hundred 
other clubs that seemed like fun. There is definitely something to be said for pushing your limits and having a sense of 
accomplishment for your day before most of the sane world is awake," said Mary DiPasquale (fr., Newcomb), commenting on 
the team's early practice times. 

Tulane showed its political side at the Expo as both the College Democrats and College Republicans were well represented. 
Members were recruited and political events began with a vengeance early in the fall. Evan Wolf president of the Tulane 
Democrats, said, "We had a great time at the Expo. We registered people to vote, signed up 581 people for our mailing list, 
gave away ice cream and made sure people knew that Tulane is stilt a strong, liberal campus." MOSAIC, Tulane's Lesbian-Cay- 
Bisexual-Transgender Alliance Group had one of the most interesting tables at the Activities Expo. Club members passed out 
brown paper bags full of LGBT information, condoms and candy. The club served multiple purposes on campus, including 
forming a comfortable environment and educating others about alternate views of sexuality. 

Religious life was also highly acknowledged at the Expo by having numerous tables with information and several religious 
community leaders present to answer questions and give guidance. Yvetta Surovec (fr.. Engineering) explained, "I started going 
to Intervarsity Christian Fellowship's Friday night worship services and freshman bible study and it's been awesome. It's great 
to be able to spend time with people that are so full of love and faith, and I'm amazed at how welcoming and friendly the 
Christian community is here to newcomers." 

Overall, this year's Activities Expo was an overwhelming success, with hundreds of new members for all the clubs and 
organizations and massive exposure for those that are lesser known. The Tulane community can rest assured that its students 
are well involved within the university and the city of New Orleans.

season, Ivan was a Category 5 Hurricane projected to hit Cuba and turn east back 
into the Atlantic Ocean. It did hit the western tip of Cuba, but because the majority 
of the hurricane didn't pass over land, Ivan was able to pass through the Yucatan 
Channel into the Gulf of Mexico. Once in the Gulf, Ivan downgraded to a Category 3 
as it headed north, eventually making landfall in Gulf Shores, Ala. Sept. 16, 2004. All 
local schools were closed. 

Reactions from students new to the severe weather experience were mixed. 
Marissa Novak (fr., Newcomb) said, "It was kind of annoying and a nuisance because 
I was worried about my travel plans." On the other hand, Melinda Rubenstein (fr., 
Newcomb) said, "[It was] euphoria — no school." When evacuation from the school 
became mandatory excitement was felt through the entire student body. Marissa 
continued, "I went home because it was too long a time to stay here." Most felt 
the administration handled the situation well. "It was an interesting experience," 
concluded Marissa, whereas Melinda felt "the whole situation was a joke— nothing 

Many students left school but didn't return home; most students who chose this 
alternative were among the most excited at the news of the evacuation. Kate Sheerin 
(fr., Newcomb) shared, "I got really hyper because there was no school." However, 
Kelly Wiggs (fr. University College) said, "I was angry; I already had all my homework 
done." Both girls choose to take a road trip to Austin while Drake Cardwell voyaged 
to Mandeville, La. "They should have cancelled school earlier," complained Cardwell, 
although all agreed that it was frustrating that the evacuation was futile in the end. 

Risking the weather, some students chose to stay in the city of New Orleans with 
family members. Melissa Gurdian (fr, Newcomb) was a native of the town and her 
initial reaction was rather apathetic: "Another hurricane." When asked why she chose 
the risky option of remaining the town, she responded, "We're not the evacuating 
type. We've never evacuated. Even though Tulane acted at the last minute, hurricanes 
are last minute events, so the administration did what they could." 

Despite frustration felt from the lack of notice and difficult travel experiences, it 
appears a consensus that the school's actions were appropriate and, although scary, 
the hurricane evacuation was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

A woman heads towards the Superdome, a 
safe evacuation point within the city, with 
her four young children in tow. As a result 
of the late notice that the town was to be 
evacuated, many families were unable to 
leave before the hurricane was scheduled 
to hit New Orleans. The Superdome was 
marked as a safe-point for those families 
uncomfortable staying in the own homes. 
Evacuation became a serious problem when 
the highways suffered severe traffic jams 
and were eventually closed, making the 
Superdome a number one choice for safety.

Men work diligently to protect their homes and apartments from potential weather damage. Having a hurricane 
threaten the city of New Orleans so directly was rare, thus the town took protecting their property seriously. Windows 
were boarded up, sand bags laid down and various other measures were taken to prevent potential damage from 
wind, rain and flooding. Because the town is lift undersea level, the possibility of a flood from the Mississippi River 
was high, resulting in tense preparations.

Bush Celebrates Victory As The Nation Divides 

President George W. Bush prepares for his second term after securing the election with 57 percent of 

the popular vote over Senator John Kerry 

The presidential election of 2004 was one of the most heated in history. America was clearly divided, as 
Democrats and Republicans intensely campaigned to sway the votes of crucial, undecided voters. As 
the election grew closer, we saw the emergence of numerous organizations and campaigns targeting 
young people and encouraging them to use their power to participate and cast their vote in this 
all-important election. Celebrities, such as Ben Affleck, Leonardo DiCaprio, the cast of the Fox show "The 
O.C." and, of course, P. Diddy joined the campaign effort telling young voters to, in the words of P. Diddy's 
campaign, "Vote or Die." MTV's "Choose or Lose" campaign set out to have 20 million people between the 
ages of 18 and 24 register and vote in the 2004 election. Based on the size of our generation, young people 
had the power to decide who our next president would be: incumbent George W. Bush or John Kerry. 

Like the election of 2000, all experts predicted that this election would be very close and the winner 
would be determined by just one or two swing states. As the countdown to election day began, the 
presidential candidates participated in a series of three debates to present their positions directly to the 
American public. The debates focused on such issues as gay marriage, the economy, health care and the war 
in Iraq, the topic invoking the most heated discussions. With both candidates taking extremely different 
positions on important issues, voters were forced to make tough choices. 

On Nov. 2 the race stayed close as each state's votes began to be counted. Both candidates continued 
to campaign, encouraging Americans to get out and vote. "This is a solemn and unique moment when the 
American people get to decide... This is your chance to hold George Bush accountable for the last four years," 
John Kerry stated during one of his many speeches that day. Kerry's comments did not seem to worry the 
president, as he told reporters, "We're coming down the homestretch, and I feel great." As the night wore on. 
President Bush held a slight lead over John Kerry, and all attention was focused on Ohio, the state that would 
determine the winner Because of provisional and absentee ballots that could potentially have been cast for 
Kerry but could not be counted until several days after the election, it seemed as though America would not 
have a president-elect for several weeks, just as in 2000. 

With 120 million Americans casting their votes, representing 60 percent of the total registered voters 
and setting records with the highest voter turnout since 1968, President Bush was declared the winner, 
receiving 51 percent of the votes, making him the first president since his father to receive more than half 
of the nation's popular vote. Along with a Republican president remaining in office, Congress also became 
predominantly Republican, with 36 filling seats in the Senate and 231 in the House of Representatives. Even 
with the war in Iraq, high unemployment and a battered economy, moral issues stoked the fire in the hearts 
of many Americans, winning the election for President Bush according to some. In addition to becoming a 
conservatively-dominated nation, 1 1 states approved an amendment to their state constitutions banning gay 
marriage, making this election year truly historic.

Student Life 



Could you give us a brief overview of the project and what it entails? 

Our goal this year is to donate over 1,000 books to local New Orleans children and record at least 500 of these books on tape. 
Literacy is an ongoing problem in the state of Louisiana, especially in New Orleans. Support from Tulane's campaign will help 
promote literacy proficiency within the New Orleans school system. 


How do you feel the project will benefit society. New Orleans and our community? 

Literacy is an enormous problem. Children who do not have access to literature will not be able to fully develop reading skills. 
We attempt to bring these children resources to overcome illiteracy. 

What obstacles did you come across during your work and how did you overcome them? 

We lost all of our supplies and a tree this year. Money was a real problem until the Newcomb Life Grant was given to the Book 
Giving Tree. 

How has the Book Giving Tree project met or exceeded your expectations? 

Far and above so far. 

How do you feel the Tulane community responded to the project? 

I feel that this project could grow and become bigger and better out the community response this year has impressed me. 

What was your biggest accomplishment during this project and how did it affect you? 

Just seeing an entire room full of books and so many or them being wrapped in one day makes me feel like my work has paid 
off. It was hard to get this project back on its feet after we lost so much in the move from the UC. I can't wait to make the Book 
giving Tree even bigger and better next year! 

Do you hope to see this project continued and for what reasons? 

I should hope that this project would be continued. I believe that the campaign for childhood literacy is extremely important. 
The more Tulane students can support this cause, the higher the literacy rates in schools surrounding the Tulane community 
will become. 

Interview with Rachel Zegas by Karen Reed 

Having successfully collected over 1,000 children's 
books, the program used a spare closet in the 
Howard-Tilton library to store the books before 
delivering them to the educational programs and 
schools awaiting them. Each book was individually 
wrapped and labeled for individual students, 
personalizing the program's efforts.

Student Life 

"I went there one time." Don't worry, that is not a normal response to the library. Besides the incredible 
selection of books one can choose from in the main library or one of the eleven different libraries within 
Howard-Tilton Memorial Library, it is a great place to study and get some serious homework done. Finding 
at least one person in your class at the library is an easy task, especially during midterms and finals. Some 
students do choose to study in other locations; however they still use the different services the library 
provides, such as the 250 free pages of printing a semester. Although many students do use the library 
for its great resources and study spots, the occasional girl will head there to "check out the frat study

The Tulane University Student Council was first organized in March 1915, and was composed 
of the President of the various student bodies of the University. The President of the Student 
Council served as the general student body President. Student government later evolved as 
the Associated Student Body and provided for the campus wide election of a President and 
Vice President. 

Revisions to the ASB Constitution in 1966 established two Vice Presidents - Vice 
President for Administration and Vice President for Finance. In 1972 constitutional 
amendments added to the student government a Vice President for University Affairs. In 
1980 constitutional amendments added a Vice President for Academic Affairs. In 1990 a Vice 
President for Student Life was added and in 1996 the Vice President for Administration was 
changed to the Executive Vice President. 

In 1998 the Associated Student Body split into two houses, the Graduate and 
Professional Student Association and the Undergraduate Student Government. Each house 
was granted an executive cabinet, eliminating the Associated Student Body Vice Presidents. 
The Associated Student Body President remains as the only student government official 
elected by the entire student body. This record was initially compiled and displayed in 
August 1979. This electronic version was compiled in and displayed in 2003. Its purpose is to 
recognize the individuals who have distinguished themselves as student government leaders 
at Tulane University.

The Undergraduate Student Government (USG) is the governing body for all undergraduate organizations at Tulane. 
The use was formed to give students an active voice at the university, and to address students' concerns regarding the 
university, its administration, and issues effecting the quality of education and life here at Tulane. All USC meetings are 
open to the public, and are held bi-weekly. The USG Senate consists of three parts. First, each undergraduate college 
elects a number of senators to represent it at USG meetings. Second, the chairs of the various organization councils 
(Association of Liberal Arts and Pre-Professional Organizations, Associations of Programming and Performance 
Organizations, Association of Service and Education Organizations, Club Sports, Media Board, Multicultural Council, 
Political Action League, and Tulane Council of Campus Religious Organizations) speak on issues affecting the groups under 
their jurisdiction. Finally, an Executive Council, consisting of a President and five Vice-Presidents, presides over the Senate 
meetings and represents the student body before the administration. The USG invites students with any issues or concerns 
to come and speak during the Student Forum of a USG .meeting or to contact the USG.

Newcomb Senate had another successful year representing the interests of Newcomb students and maintaining the 
standards of academic excellence, preserving the tradition and fostering the atmosphere and identity of the H. Sophie 
Newcomb Memorial College through programs, activities and proposed legislation. This year, the group sponsored a host 
of activities for Newcomb students such as Celebrate Newcomb Week, with weeklong activities such as an ice cream social 
with Dean Lowenthal, a Toast to Newcomb at the home of the dean and an election watch in the JL lounge. Newcomb 
Activities Expo was also held during this week, and at the end of the fall semester Newcomb Senate again sponsored the 
Book Giving Tree, which donated books to New Orleans children. Newcomb Senior and Senate President Beth Sundstrom 
said, "I feel that the Newcomb College Senate fosters the existence of a Newcomb community and provides an opportunity 
for students to develop confidence and leadership skills in a nurturing environment. As a student government, we also 
tackle important campus concerns and strive to increase awareness regarding issues relevant to women in our university 
and community. We actively strive to perpetuate the values of Newcomb College through campus events, speakers and 
community outreach programs."

programming for Tulane College students. Among the annual Senate-sponsored events are the "What's My Major?" 
forum, featuring faculty from departments of the Faculty of the Liberal Arts and Sciences; "Day at the Diamond," a 
Senate-sponsored Tulane baseball game; and the "Big Brother Program," w^hich welcomes incoming freshman to Tulane 
College. I 

Additional activities include significant community service involvement and the production of a bi-annual newsletter. 
Tulane College Senators also serve as marshals at the College's annual commencement ceremony. 

Through its activities, the Senate seeks to further the sense of tradition and pride in Tulane College. All programs are 
intended to benefit the students of Tulane College.

Each year during the spring semester, University College students elect a president, vice-president (fulf time student), vice- 
president (part-time student), secretary, treasurer and senators-at-large. These officials function as the University College 
Student Government. Additionally, the president of the college government appoints (generally from among the elected 
officials) two representatives to the university-wide Associated Student Body Senate. 

Student government is funded by a mandatory student fee. Part of the income goes to Tulane University student 
organizations and activities, and part is retained by the University College Student Government Association. Student activity 
fees are distributed by the Associated Student Body, which organizes campus activities. The University College Student 
Government Association requests its budget from that body. i

The Tulane Chapter of the National Society of 
Blacl< Engineers (NSBE) strove this year to uphold 
the society's mission of increasing the number of 
culturally responsible black engineers who excel 
academically, succeed professionally and positively

joint social events such as the Tulane/Xavier 
Skating Night. In addition to this valuable 
union, the NSBE attended their fall Regional

The Tulane-lsrael Public Affairs Committee (TIPAC) put the "Israel Dimension" into student political activism. This 
year TIPAC participated in the "Dude, Where's My Party?" activities expo to help students sitting on the fence decide 
who their vote would go for in the November presidential election. TIPAC also held an Israel Advocacy Training Day in 
October with the goals of recruiting and training pro-Israel students and giving them the skills and resources necessary 
to become an advocate for Israel. This all-day affair included guest speakers, discussions, a marketing information 
session, dinner and a concert. Although TIPAC does advocate political activism and strong U.S. -Israel relations, they are a 
bipartisan and nondenominationai organization. All that is required to get involved with the Tulane-lsrael Public Affairs 
Committee is a shared belief that it is necessary for the United States to have a strong relationship with Israel.

in a year with a heated presidential campaign and election, the political organizations on campus had a lot to say. Tulane 
College Republicans, a group that existed to actively campaign for Republican candidates in all elections, worked this 
year to bring a conservative message to campus through carefully chosen speakers and discussions. College Republicans 
hosted such speakers as Louisiana state Sen. Walter Boasso and congressional candidate Art Schwertz to help foster 
intellectual debate on campus. For the 2004 election, College Republicans participated in the "Get Out and Vote" effort 
for David Vitter in the Senate race in Louisiana. Members of the group phone banked, did door-to-door canvassing, 
and sign-waved for Vitter and Bush. With rumors that some voters faced opposition at the polls this year, President of 
College Republicans Thomas Thompson (sr, Tulane) commented on the opposition that many College Republicans faced 
on the Tulane campus, saying, "Difficulties when voting? Well, I have not heard of any when voting, but there has been 
an extreme bias on campus that led to many CRs being afraid to state they are Republican on this campus." The Tulane 
College Republicans hope that in the future their political views will be accepted and respected on campus.

This year the Tulane College Democrats have become a leader among College Democrats chapters in Louisiana. They 
worked hard on the Kerry campaign sponsoring trips to Florida, as well as local canvassing and visibility efforts. The result 
was that Tulane's precinct turned out 46% more democratic voters than in 2000 and the Democrats won the precinct 
by 230%! After Kerry's November 2nd loss, the Tulane College Democrats kept working hard for run-off Congressional 
candidate Charlie Melancon. The Election Day phone calls for Melancon outnumbered his margin of victory. In the 
second semester, secretary David Friedman headed up the creation of "The Smart Ass", the newsletter of the Tulane 
College Democrats. The Smart Ass runs commentary on current political issues such as the fight to preserve Social 
Security and Republican bankruptcy legislation. The Dems continued the tradition of Social Justice Week, partnering 
with other campus organizations to raise awareness of progressive issues. In March they sponsored a trip to a campaign 
training session and in April brought more people than all the other schools combined to the Louisiana College 
Democrats state-wide convention . While we have had our rough moments as a party this year, the Tulane College 
Democrats continue to push forward with effective advocacy.

The Tulane Exercise and Sports Science Society, a new club that emerged onto 
the extra curricular scene this year, proved to be an important new addition for 
students and faculty alike. Affiliation with Exercise and Sports Science, a University 
College major program, was not a requirement for this new club but rather just 
an interest in general wellness. TESSS welcomed students from all colleges to 
participate in the organization. Vice President Cecily Lehman, University College 
Senior, explained the purpose of the club as, "to provide education and services 
that promote wellness and performance enhancement through social interaction, 
academic and career opportunities, and 

community service." At meetings every other Wednesday in the Reily Center 
students gathered to discuss and learn about topics ranging from what they 
can do with their Exercise and Sports Science degree to their personal body fat 
percentages. In its first year, the club has gained recognition and will be a part of 
the Tulane community for years to come.

feel made a significant contribution to science. The recipient of the award received a plaque that was hung in Newcomb Hall. 
In addition to the revival of the Faculty Member of the Year Award, Women in Science implemented many other interesting 
activities this year Students put on science and magic shows for local children. Other volunteer projects that WIS partici- 
pated in included walking in the MS Walk with CACTUS and working with TUNA on Brain Week activities. The group also 
organized a Medical Panel with medical students and doctors to discuss the medical field with members. Women in Science 
played an active role on campus and in the community this year.

a few years but it has made an eventful come back. They brought in several guest lecturers to talk to students about 

philosophical debates taking place in the world today. One of the lecturers was from as far away as 

Australia. Topics included overpopulation, copy write laws and voting. Some of the lectures were given by Tulane graduate 

students which allowed students in the society to learn more about the philosophy department at Tulane. All of the 

lectures were followed by a discussion. Students debated each other and the speaker, bringing in their many different 


The club members were not just philosophy majors. In fact people from all the different grades and colleges regularly 

attended club meetings. Newcomb college freshman Melissa Kimbler described the society as "a great forum for 

discussion" and later added "we get free pizza". The Tulane Philosophy Society is a good place to go if you are interested in 

philosophy or just to hear a good argument.

The Community Action Council of Tulane University 
Students (CACTUS) aimed, through its work, to create 
a world where CACTUS was no longer necessary. The 
organization was designed to expose students to the 
social crises facing urban centers like New Orleans 
and to build two-way learning relationships. CACTUS 
helped the Tulane community lessen the gap between 
themselves and the broader community. 

Every year CACTUS sponsored Outreach Tulane, 
the university's single largest day of community 
service. Nearly 1,000 members of the Tulane 
community gathered at sites all across the city in 
various projects to help beautify and improve the 
New Orleans community. "The Annual Paint Rally for 
New Orleans Public Schools, sponsored by CACTUS, 
is growing larger each year," stated President Chase 
Billing (sr., Tulane). "This is a project based upon the 
principle that children learn more effectively in an 
appealing and inviting environment." 

Other great projects sponsored by the group 
included the annual and ever-popular CACTUS 
Halloween Day, where children from New Orleans 
public schools came to campus to trick-or-treat in 
dorms, play games and take part in exciting activities 
on Tulane's quads. 

"There are countless dedicated volunteers involved 
in CACTUS," according to Billings. "About half of 
them work with children and schools, and the other 
half perform diverse services, from visiting hospital 
patients to serving food in a soup kitchen, spending 
time with the elderly and building with Habitat for 
Humanity." CACTUS helped others help themselves.

Circle K 

The New Orleans community at large was in great need of 
community service, and Circle K, an international service 
organization which focused on the improving the future 
of children, jumped at the opportunity to make great 
changes. "Circle K is more than a community service 
organization, it's a community in which the members 
become a family," Circle K President Kea Turner (jr., 
Newcomb) happily stated. "Circle K is an international 
club that works closely with other Circle K, Kiwanis and 
Key Clubs throughout New Orleans, Louisiana, Mississippi 
and Tennessee. We work with organizations such as 
Habitat for Humanity and Rebuilding Together to help 
build and refurbish houses in underdeveloped areas of the 

Other notable groups Circle K worked with included 
the Ronald McDonald House, the local Children's Hospital, 
Bethlehem Children's Residential Treatment Center and 
Belle Reve, a home for AIDS patients located in the French 
Quarter. Members also volunteered at the Louisiana 
SPCA animal shelter, both socializing with the animals and 
assisting in animal adoptions. The list of annual events 
Circle K participated in included the NO-AIDS Walk, 
Making Strides for Breast Cancer and Light the Night 
Walk, all of which raised money for research and disease 
prevention. More events included Boo at the Zoo, Take 
Back the Night, Angel Tree, March of Dimes and Relay for

Tulane Politics Club 

The Tulane Politics Club was an organization which took 
on many important issues this year. In the past year they 
have been a voice against the war in Iraq. They have held 
several protests in order "to mobilize students in support 
of various liberation struggles" as stated by the president 
of the club Jay Arena, a graduate school student who 
expects to graduate in 2006. They marched with other 
anti-war groups in the Martin Luther King Day parade. 
They also work with groups in the local community that 
promote justice. In November they organized a lecture on 
racism in the New Orleans public schools. A woman who 
worked in those public schools for three decades came to 
talk to Tulane students about this issue and what Tulane's 
role has been and should be in the struggle to end racism 
in New Orleans. 

This club has been dedicated to bringing a new 
perspective to the Tulane campus. They wanted to 
make sure that the students here are not forced to 
choose between the Democrats and Republicans to find 
their political identity. These students believed that a 
third option is necessary. The president of Politics Club 
described their ideology as "anti-capitalist, anti-racist, 
pro-working class." 

This is a dynamic organization that has been serious 
about making a difference locally and nationally. For 
students interested in activism that does not fit into the 
two-party system, they have found a home in the Tulane 
Politics Club.

It's a dirty job... but they love doing it! 

The Tulane community's dedication to the safety and well-being of students could be seen through the broad spectrum of 
student organizations dedicated to this cause. Tulane Emergency Medical Service (TEMS), Rape Emergency Awareness and Coping 
Hotline (REACH) and Peer Health Advocates of Tulane (PHAT) were three of these associations. All these groups trained their 
volunteers to provide Tulane students with information, care and compassion. TEMS educated their members and nationally registered 
them as certified emergency medical technicians, while REACH trained their students to provide counseling to rape, sexual assault and 
sexual harassment victims via their 24-hour hotline. PHAT volunteers gave programs to students and organizations on college health 
issues such as alcohol, nutrition, safer sex practices, and STIs. Training and education was a crucial element of the functioning of TEMS, 


Along with providing expert emergency medical care to students, faculty and staff, Tulane Emergency Medical Service also educated 
the rest of the Tulane community by providing CPR classes on Saturday mornings and an EMT class each semester These courses were 
open to anyone and provided valuable information and experience even if students did not plan on getting involved in the health 
sciences. In fact, a significant portion of TEMS volunteers were not pre-med students but simply enjoyed the experience TEMS offered 
them. It may seem like a lot of work for a volunteer organization, but when asked about the commitment, member Laura Brown (jr., 
Newcomb) responded, "It's the best experience I've ever had. I would probably pay to do it if need be." For members interested in the 
field of medicine, TEMS gave them an impressive background and knowledge that not many people get while still undergraduates. 
"My expectations [for TEMS] were surpassed by far once I joined. I thought it sounded like the greatest opportunity, and I was right," 
commented Brown. 


Peer Health Advocates worked with student health center employees to educate people about health issues that affect college students. 
PHAT provided workshops and interactive presentations that gave reliable and important information to students who participated 
in programs. The group also had an extensive video collection that addressed crucial issues. Another form of PHAT workshops, these 
videos could be viewed by groups and accompanied by a guided discussion. "Giving workshops is a lot of fun for us and the students 
that we present to. As PHATs, we always want to keep up with changing trends so we continually update the information in our 
programs to keep the students up to date. There are a lot of health related myths that we try to abolish by giving reliable information in 
our programs," stated new member Leslie Moses (jr., Newcomb). The Peer Health Advocates of Tulane continually strove to inform the 
community and discuss with everyone health issues that affect college students. 

Tulane Emergency Medical Service, Rape Emergency Awareness and Coping Hotline and Peer Health Advocates of Tulane were all an 
integral piece in the puzzle of the Tulane Community. The dedication of these organizations to provide education, support and services 
continually improved campus life.

Rape Emergency Awareness and Coping Hotline was dedicated to preventing rape. They provided educational presentations to 
students and the community on preventing rape, what to do if you are a victim of rape and other issues. Through the 24-hour hotline, 
rape victims could anonymously speak to someone who has been trained to deal with this sort of crisis and arrange to be taken to the 
hospital for a rape kit. The hotline could also refer students to medical professionals, professional counselors and the NOPD sex crimes 
office. REACH also had a pager so that someone can be contacted at all times. Through commitment and perseverance, REACH assisted 
students and the community in their time of need.

Green Wave Ambassadors acted as student recruiters for future Tulane freshmen. They worked closely with the admissions 
office to extend their knowledge of campus life to prospective students. CWA members gave campus tours daily to students 
visiting Tulane and their parents. Members also took high school students that had been accepted to Tulane into their rooms 
for a night to make sure they received a broad view of campus life by experiencing it first hand. Other activities that GWA 
held for prospective students included student question and answer panels, running registration check-in and check-out and 
attending Bruff lunches with faculty to help high school and transfer students learn more about Tulane in a casual setting. 

Green Wave Ambassadors were very enthusiastic about their experiences at Tulane and liked to share them with others. 
"Hosting prospective students is a lot of fun," commented Karen Kriger (jr., Newcomb). "My roommate and I are both Green 
Wave Ambassadors. We like to host students together so the girls feel more comfortable and we all have fun." Deciding which 
college to go to is an important decision and GWA members were a great resource for students that were considering going 
to Tulane. Michael Pinsky (jr., Tulane), Assistant VP of Tours, stated, "Being a member of GWA allows me to show prospective 
students and their families what a great school Tulane is, and it is a great way to meet new people." GWA was a valuable 
program at Tulane, and the members' enthusiasm for their work could be seen by the growing number of freshmen that 
decided to come to Tulane each year

students and alumni to interact and socialize, such as 
homecoming programs and luncheons at the Alumni 
House. Treasurer Lory Cenac (sr., Business) stated, 
"SAA is a great club to be involved in. People don't 
even realize how prominent we are on campus." The 
voice of SAA members could be heard all over campus 
because in addition to the mentioned activities. Student 
Alumni Ambassadors were involved in events and 
organizations that reach beyond the campus. Through 
their commitment and enthusiasm. Student Alumni 
Ambassadors continually worked to improve life at Tulane 
in the present and for future students.

jpsilon Ltiapter or Alpha EpsiTonTf was 6ngTnaTlyT6unde3 at Tulane University in 1951. Though AEPi shares 
a shaky history with the school, interest in Jewish fraternal life has kept AEPi a recognizable element in the Tulane 
community. The most recent colony was founded in Spring 2000, and moved into a new apartment complex in 
August of 2002. Tau Upsilon was additionally regranted its charter and chapter status nationally in a cerimony taking 
place on March 15,2003. 

Alpha Epsilon Pi is a national college fraternity. Our basic purpose is to provide the opportunity for a Jewish man 
to be able to join with other men into a Jewish organization whose purpose is not specifically religious, but rather 
social and cultural in nature. Alpha Epsilon Pi is a Jewish fraternity, though non-discriminatory and open to all who 
are willing to espouse its purpose and values. Tau Upsilon is the only officially Jewish fraternity on the Tulane campus.

National History 

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. is the oldest Greek-letter organization established in America by 
Black college women. The record of its origin,growth and development, activities, evolving goals and 
accomplishments is more than an interesting chronicle of a colorful bit of college-based Americana. It is, 
rather, a significant and inspiring reflection of the development of a minority group in a changing culture. 

In 1908, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. became America's first Creek-letter organization established 
by and for Black women. Her roots date back to Howard University, Washington, DC, where the idea for 
formation was conceived by Ethel Hedgeman Lyie of St. Louis,Missouri. She viewed the Sorority as an 
instrument for enriching the social and intellectual aspects of college life by providing mental stimulation 
through interaction with friends and associates. Through the years, however. Alpha Kappa Alpha's 
functioning has become more complex. After her incorporation as a perpetual body in 1913, Alpha Kappa 
Alpha Sorority, Inc. gradually branched out and became the channel through which selected college- 
trained women improved the social and economic conditions in their city, state, nation and the world. 

Today, that tradition has continued-internationally, nationally and locally. Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, 
Inc. cultivates and encourages high scholastic and ethical standards; promotes unity and friendship among 
college women; alleviates problems concerning girls and women; maintains a progressive interest in college 
life; and serves all mankind through a nucleus of more than 140,000 women in over 860 chapters. 

Chapter History 

The Omicron Psi Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority,^ Inc. was chartered on April 15,1990, by twenty 

young ladies dedicated to sevice and sisterhood. "The Progressive Sisters of Tulane" committed themselves 

to community service and campus involvement by tutoring children, entertaining at hospitals and 

holding forums and socials. In addition to scholastic excellence, these lovely ladies helped organize Project 

LO.Y.A.L, a mentoring program for students at Lafayette Elementary and Live Oak Middle School. Project 

L.O.Y.A.L continues to be a C.A.C.T.U.S. program, in which past and present members of the Omicron Psi 

chapter participate. 

I \ 

Today, the ladies of Omicron Psi continue to initiate only the finest women who strive for excellence. The 
Omicron Psi Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. is so much more than a social organization; it is a 

community service organization first and foremost.

Delta Xi Nu Multicultural Sorority Inc. 
Caria Ball, President 

Delta Xi Nu Multicultural Sorority Inc. initiated their pledge class of 2004 in December. The 
class, only the fourth to be initiated in Tulane's chapter, has been carefully selected by the 
pledge committee during the previous four months. "It's very exciting whenever it gets close 
to initiation, because it means our organization is getting bigger and bigger," said CarIa Ball, 
president of the sorority. 

To be initiated, the girls must go through all of the pledge activities and meet all the 
requirements, and pass a series of tests. The pledge class, consisting of 10 girls, has a wide range 
of demographics. The girls range from 18- to 21-year-olds, freshmen to seniors, with diverse 
racial backgrounds. Delta Xi Nu prides itself on its multiculturalism and diversity, and pledges 
during fall semester to differentiate itself from the other Tulane sororities.

Kappa Alpha Order 

Kappa Alpha's philosophy of gentlemanly conduct and its unending quest for excellence are 
directly attributed to the example set by Robert E. Lee, our spiritual founder. As president of the 
college where KA was founded, Lee personified the traits of gentility and chivalry. KA strives to 
translate these timeless values into the mainstream of colleges and universities across the nation. 

Kappa Alpha has existed since 1865 and is a proven support network for young men as they 
make the transition from high school or a community college to a four-year institution. 

The Order seeks out the positive character of its members and provides many opportunities for 
enrichment and development. 


With 136 chapters and 125,000 initiated members. Kappa Alpha continues to be a leader 
among fraternities. KA is positioned to meet the challenges of an ever-changing society. 
Campuses have refocused their missions to meet the demands of information age careers and 
fluctuating demographics. In the same spirit, KA has developed new programs to compliment 
the undergraduate experience. The Crusade is Kappa Alpha's new four-year total membership 
education program, focusing on scholarship, campus and community involvement, leadership 
development, and career-building skills. In addition, every new member receives an interactive 
CD-ROM detailing KA's history, policies and opportunities. It is these important and progressive 
programs that will move KA into the future.

Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. was founded at Howard University in Washington, D.C., January 9, 1914, by three young 
African-American male students. The founders. Honorable A. Langston Taylor, Honorable Leonard F. Morse, and Honorable 
Charles I. Brown, wanted to organize a Greek letter fraternity that would truly exemplify the ideals of brotherhood, 
scholarship, and service. 

The founders deeply wished to create an organization that viewed itself as "a part of" the general community rather than 

"apart from" the general community. They believed that each potential member should be judged by his own merits rather 

than his family background or affluence...without regard of race, nationality, skin tone or texture of hair. They wished and 

wanted their fraternity to exist as part of even a greater brotherhood which would be devoted to the "inclusive we" rather 

than the "exclusive we". | 

From its inception, the Founders also conceived Phi Beta Sigma as a mechanism to deliver services to the general community. 
Rather than gaining skills to be utilized exclusively for themselves and their immediate families, the founders of Phi Beta 
Sigma held a deep conviction that they should return their newly acquired skills to the communities from which they had 
come. This deep conviction was mirrored in the Fraternity's motto, "Culture For Service and Service For Humanity". 

Today, 91 years later. Phi Beta Sigma has blossomed into an international organization of leaders. No longer a single entity, 
the Fraternity has now established the Phi Beta Sigma Educational Foundation, the Phi Beta Sigma Housing Foundation, 
the Phi Beta Sigma Federal Credit Union, and the Phi Beta Sigma Charitable Outreach Foundation. Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, 
Inc., founded in 1920 with the assistance of Phi Beta Sigma, is the sister organization. No other fraternity and sorority is 
constitutionally bound as Sigma and Zeta. We both enjoy and foster a mutually supportive relationship.

Pi Beta Phi Fraternity was founded at Monmouth College In Monmouth, Illinois, on 
April 28, 1867, as I. C Sorosis. Pi Beta Phi was the first national secret college society 
of women to be modeled after the Greek-letter fraternities of men. During a time 
when few women were admitted to colleges and universities. Pi Beta Phi created a 
feeling of unity among pioneering women. 

Symbols are an important part of the understanding and appreciation of Pi Beta 
Phi. These symbols serve as outward signs of unspoken ideals that all Pi Phis share.

History of Pi Kappa Alpha 

Pi Kappa Alpha International Fraternity is a Greek letter, secret, college, social fraternity. It 
is composed of men who share similar ideals of friendship, truth, honor, and loyalty. The 
Fraternity's ideals are expressed in the written words and symbols of a secret ritual. These 
ideals and members' ability to maintain the visions of the Fraternity's founders are the great 
moral legacy of Pi Kappa Alpha. j 

Pi Kappa Alpha was founded at the University of Virginia on March 1, 1868. At the time, 
the University of Virginia was the fifth largest school in the United States. Only Harvard, 
Yale, Cornell and Michigan were bigger. The University of Virginia is considered the first truly 
American state university because it was the first to be established totally free from religious 
control. ^ 

It all started in Room 47 West Range when Frederick Southgate Taylor turned to Littleton 
Waller Tazewell, his cousin and roommate, for help in starting a new fraternity. Also present 
was James Benjamin Sclater, Jr., a schoolmate of Tazewell, and Sclater's roommate Robertson 
Howard. Those four men voted to add a fifth to their group and chose Julian Edward Wood. 
Although history is unclear, William Alexander, probably a friend of Sclater, Jr., was proposed 
for membership and was admitted as a founder. The first initiate was Augustus Washington 

The essence of the Founders' vision for Pi Kappa Alpha can be found in its Preamble. A 
committee was first suggested by Brother William Alexander "to draw up a statement of the 
origin and the organization of the Fraternity." The committee was composed of brothers 
Robertson Howard and Littleton Waller Tazewell. The resulting statement is now referred to 
as the Preamble. 

"For the establishment of friendship on a firmer and more lasting basis; for the promotion 
of brotherly love and kind feeling; for the mutual benefit and advancement of the interests of 
those with whom we sympathize and deem worthy of our regard; We have resolved to form a 
fraternity, believing that, thus we can most successfully accomplish our object."

i!# Academics 



Location: Richardson Memorial Hall, Uptown Campus, New Orleans 

Founded: 1894 

Enrollment: Approximately 325 students 

Faculty: 21 full-time faculty and 19 adjunct or part-time faculty 

The President's Award for Excellence in Teaching was established in the year 
2000 and is given to full-time faculty members who have a sustained and 
compelling record of excellence in teaching and learning and an ongoing 
commitment to educational excellence. Each recipient receives a monetary 
award plus a medal designed by Professor Emeritus Franklin Adams. Two 
medals are awarded at the university commencement each May - one for 
undergraduate teaching and the other for graduate/professional teaching. 








The medal is designed to be worn by the recipient on formal academic 
occasions such as university commencements or whenever academic 
costumes are worn. 

The medal bears a stylized rendering of the shield that is an integral part of the 
university coat of arms. The grouping of three towers represents the arms of 
the city of Tours in France which was the home of the Tulane family for years. 
The crescents with flanking stars are from the arms of Jean Baptiste Le Moyne, 
Sieur de Bienville, who founded the city of New Orleans. The quartering of 
these two arms on the shield signify the identification of the university with 
the city. The Latin motto, Non Sibi Sed Suis, is translated as "not for one's self, 
but for one's own". 

Ha Berman was awarded the 2005?^?I^KWward for Excellence in Teach 


A. B . Freeman 
School of Business 

The A. B. Freeman School of Business, one of 11 schools and colleges comprising Tulane University, was founded in 1914 
by a group of New Orleans business people dedicated to the advancement of management education. Today, the Freeman 
School is recognized as one America's leading business institutions, consistently ranked among the nation's best by prestigious 
publications such as Business Week, Forbes and U.S. News & World Report. 

The first and only nationally ranked business school in the Gulf South, the Freeman School offers undergraduate and 
graduate programs including a Bachelor of Science in Management (BSM) program. Masters programs in Finance and in 
Accounting, a full-time Master of Business Administration program, a part-time Professional MBA program, an accelerated 
Executive MBA program, and a PhD program in business. The school maintains facilities in New Orleans, Houston and Shanghai. 
In addition, with international partner institutions, the Freeman Schools offers executive and faculty development programs in 
Chile, China, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Taiwan and Venezuela. 

Housed in a state-of-the-art complex including the newly built Goldring/Woldenberg Hall II, the Freeman School enrolls 
more than 1,300 full-time students and boasts an outstanding faculty noted for scholarship and teaching excellence in 
accounting and taxation, finance, information systems, international business, management, marketing, and organizational 
behavior. Through innovative curricula and offerings such as the nationally acclaimed Burkenroad Reports equities research 
program, the Levy-Rosenblum Institute for Entrepreneurship and the Goldring Institute of International Business, the Freeman 
School has built an exceptional reputation for meeting the needs of both students and the business community.

School of 

The mission of the Tulane School of Engineering is to provide outstanding opportunities for learning and discovery in 
engineering and computer science and to foster an environment that is student focused, research intensive, entrepreneurial 
and responsive to the needs of the community. 

The school offers degrees in biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, 
computer science, electrical engineering, environmental engineering, and mechanical engineering. An individually designed 
major option is also available. 

Location: A seven-building complex on the Uptown New Orleans campus, that includes the Lindy Claiborne Boggs Center for 
Energy and Biotechnology, Stanley O. Thomas Hall, Walter E. Blessey Hall, and the Francis M. Taylor Laboratories. 

Founded: 1894 

Enrollment: Approximately 700 undergraduate students and 200 graduate students 

Faculty: 61 full-time engineering faculty 


The Tulane University School of Engineering was established in 1894 and its impact was immediate. Among the graduates 
of the late 1890's were Arsene Perrilliat who constructed the Mississippi River levees from Vicksburg to Baton Rouge, Albert 
Baldwin Wood who designed the pumping system that drains the city of New Orleans to this day, and William Monroe 
White who helped design and build many of the most important hydroelectric installations in the world including the one 
at Niagara Falls. That was only the beginning. For over a century, the Tulane University School of Engineering has consistently 
produced outstanding graduates at the bachelors, masters, and doctoral levels; graduates who have assumed leadership roles 
in industry, business, government, medicine, and education; graduates who have made a difference. 

Today, Tulane University ranks among the top research universities in the world, yet its focus is still on producing outstanding 
graduates. In the Tulane University School of Engineering, undergraduate and graduate students enjoy the personal attention 
of some of the very best faculty in the world; faculty who are working at the forefront of engineering and computer science in 
such areas as advanced materials, bioengineering and biotechnology, energy and environment, and information technology 
and computational science. The rich tradition of excellence, the small student-faculty ratio, the intellectual environment of 
a highly ranked research university, and the setting in one of America's most unique cities all combine to make the Tulane 
University School of Engineering a truly exceptional experience.

In 1886, Josephine Louise Newcomb wrote to the Tulane Board of 
Administrators about her long considered memorial to her "beloved 
Daughter, H. Sophie Newcomb." Sophie had died in 1870 at the age 
of 15, and since that time, Mrs. Newcomb had given much thought 
to what would make a lasting memorial to her daughter. A college 
for other young girls and women, a "work of the spirit" that would 
look "to the practical side of life as well as to literary excellence..." 
were her conclusions. 

Her funds assured Newcomb College a secure foundation for its 
early years. Indeed, Newcomb's gift made the College the most secure 
of all Southern women's colleges. Newcomb's donation also brought 
about an unusual arrangement for the education of women with the 
creation of the first degree-granting college for women to be founded 
within a university in America. This model was later adopted by several 
colleges, including Barnard College of Columbia University. 

Perhaps most noteworthy was the success of the Newcomb 
Pottery, which had an overwhelming appeal to students. The 
Newcomb Pottery was an experiment, or model industry, to provide 
employment for women in a milieu where few opportunities existed. 

Over 70,000 pieces of pottery were produced before the Pottery 
closed in 1939. The art program also was enlarged in these years 
to include many other arts and crafts. Examples can be found of 
illustrated bookplates; jewelry; embroidery; and hand bound books, 
often embossed leather covers and elaborate clasps — all of which 
were crafted and sold by Newcomb students and alumnae. 

Newcomb moved to its Broadway campus in 1918 and 
emerged as a leader among Southern women's colleges. Acorns 
from the original oak trees of the Washington Avenue campus were 
transplanted to the new campus and traditions such as class ring 
ceremonies, the wearing of caps and gowns. Field Days and other 
rituals of the single sex campus were continued. 

During these mid-century years, Newcomb raised its standards, 
implemented new programs, increased enrollment, and required 
College Entrance board exams for the first time. Programs such as 
the Newcomb Junior Year Abroad (established in 1954-55) that 
allowed male students during its second year of existence and 
Tulane's growing graduate program — these made the coordinate 
college a place with appeal to students from all over the U.S. Thus, 
Acting Dean Anna Many (1951-53) and Dean Jack Hubbard (1953- 
65) oversaw an increasingly diverse student body. In 1963, Newcomb 
admitted its first African American student. 

During these years, Tulane and Newcomb students also 
responded to other changes in society and the polidcal climate of 
the times. Newcomb students protested the incursion of American 
armed forces into Cambodia during the Vietnam War Students 
also agitated for other concerns that would not have been thought 
possible in years past: coeducadon housing, the elimination of 
curfews, the need for increased safety in an urban environment. 
Another important force of that era, the women's movement, also 
brought more varied campus opportunities to Newcomb students. 
Varsity athletics and Tide IX funds brought nine athletic scholarships 
to Newcomb in 1976. In 1975, the Women's Center, later the Center 
for Research on Women developed to promote research into the 

Photos by Ariel Baverman 

lives of women and to maintain the College Archives. A single curriculum 
for Newcomb and the College of Arts and Sciences was adopted in 1979. 

At graduation today, the Daisy Chain and the accomplished graduates 
both reflect on this dual mission. The Daisy Chain, a tradition since 
the early days of the college, consists of over 1,000 daisies assembled on 
commencement morning by outstanding Juniors. Earlier chains were made 
from clover, oleander, magnolia, or daisies, and were collected from campus 
gardens and neighbors yards. Newcomb has oneof the few remaining chains 
in the country. Newcomb graduates themselves have led outstanding lives, 
receiving recognidon in the many fields including art, law, medicine, and 
community service. The rich legacy of an education both literary and 
practical is found among these graduates.

Tulane College 

Founded in 1847 as Tulane University's original undergraduate division. Tulane College from its inception has 
been dedicated to liberal arts learning and service to society. The college enrolls men pursuing the bachelor's 
degree in the arts and sciences. It enjoys a coordinate relationship with Nevvcomb College, the university's 
liberal arts division for women; men and women attend classes together, taught by the Faculty of the Liberal 
Arts and Sciences. Students in both colleges enjoy the benefits of a small, historic liberal arts college as well as the 
resources of a world-class research institution.

of age or financial resources. Students may enroll on a full-time or part-time basis and classes are offered in a variety of 
locations in the New Orleans area and Biloxi, Mississippi. 

Location: Main office, 125 Gibson Hall, Uptown Campus, New Orleans 
Class locations: Uptown, Downtown, Elmwood and Biloxi, Miss. 
Founded: 1942 
Enrollment: 348 full-time and 1,491 part-time students

SEPTEMBER - Tulane law Professor Gary Roberts testified at a hearing of the Constitution 
Subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee who was to determine whether the NCAA 
enforcement process is, or ought to be, subject to any outside due process requirements. This was the 
ninth time in the last 12 years that Roberts, a nationally known expert on sports law, testified before a 
congressional committee on some aspect of the sports industry. 

OCTOBER - Tulane Law Professor Robert Force, founding director of the Maritime Law Center, was 
honored with an international colloquium. Some of the world's most respected maritime law experts 
traveled from five continents to deliver and discuss draft articles. Their essays were published in Kluwer 
Law International and dedicated to Professor Force in honor of his 70th birthday. 


School of Social Work 

The Tulane University School of Social Work uses New Orleans as a living laboratory, taking advantage of the city's 
unique characteristics to study and apply the vision, ethics, values, and purposes of the social v\/ork profession. Our 
mission is to conserve, communicate and advance knowledge to enhance the capacity of people to care for one 
another, to build communities, and thorough the profession of social work, to advance the ideals of a humane and 
just society. 

Our Past 

The Southern School of Social Sciences and Public Services was the first training program for social workers in 
the deep South. Under the sponsorship of the Kingsley Settlement House, a group of Tulane social science faculty 
offered the first classes in social welfare in 1914. Sponsored by grants from the American Red Cross, a formal one- 
year program was implemented in 1921. 

By 1927, with funding from a Rockefeller grant, the school became a separate program with a two-year curriculum 
qualifyingstudentsfor the Master of Arts. In 1935, the University established the degree of Master of Social Work. 
The School has awarded the Master of Social Work degree to more than 4,700 students from all 50 of the United 
States and over 30 other countries. 

Since 1927, the first year of national accreditation, the School of Social Work has maintained full accreditation 
status. It is a charter member of the Council on Social Work Education, which is the standard-setting and 
accreditation body in the field of social work education. Tulane School of Social Work is accredited by the Council 
on Social Work Education (CSWE). 

The School added a doctoral program with an advanced curriculum in 1961. This program, awarding a Doctor of 
Social Work degree, was designed for further development of social work researchers, teachers and policy consultants.

School of Public Health 

Addresses by Nobel Laureates Andrew Schally of Tulane University and Louis Ignarro, formerly of Tulane 
University, kicked off a host of public events marking the 1 70th anniversary of Tulane University Health 
Sciences Center Sept. 30 and Oct. 1, 2004. The events included presentations on the latest innovations 
in eye care, the newest technologies in life support training and nearly every other aspect of the health 

Tulane researchers received $3.6 million from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for a five- 
year project to establish a Prevention Research Center. 

The center is dedicated to understanding the environmental causes of obesity. The Tulane center is one of 
28 nationwide, creating a network of researchers focused on increasing knowledge about preventing and 
controlling chronic diseases such as obesity. 

"Obesity will soon overtake tobacco use as the leading cause of fatal chronic diseases such as heart 
disease," says principal investigator Thomas Farley, chair of the department of community health sciences 
at the Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. 

Approximately 127 million adults in the U.S. are overweight, 60 million obese and nine million are 
severely obese, according to national statistics. Obesity increases the risk of chronic diseases such as 
diabetes, heart disease, stroke and certain cancers. The center will examine a variety of neighborhood 
factors, including the availability of neighborhood locations for physical activity, the impact of 
neighborhood safety on physical activity, and the neighborhood availability of healthy and unhealthy 

"We know that exercise and diet play important roles in preventing obesity, but we are interested in how 
the environment in which people live affects their ability to make healthy choices," Farley says.

SEPTEMBER - Renowned photographer Michael P. Smith was honored for his work documenting Mardi 
Gras Indians, spiritual churches, Jazz Fest and other New Orleans cultural traditions in a special event held 
in the Woldenberg Art Center's Freeman Auditorium. 

The event included a slide presentation of Smith's work and a panel discussion among Smith and other 
distinguished photographers and historians including Herman Leonard, Steven Armbruster, Chandra 
McCormick and Keith Calhoun. Bruce Raeburn, curator of the Hogan Jazz Archive, moderated. 

Harold Sylvester, known for his recurring role on "Married...With Children" and appearances in 17 feature 
films and more than 400 television shows, taught a new course at Tulane University in the spring 2005 
semester in which students wrote, directed and produced a commercial film. 

"This is how to make a movie hands-on. It's void of theory," said Sylvester, a Tulane graduate who was born 
and raised in New Orleans' Calliope housing development. 

Twenty-five students were accepted for the course, which was taught through the theatre and dance 
department. In addition to Sylvester, course instructors included Tulane dance and theatre professors Ron 
Gural and James Fitzmorris. 

Sylvester, who is also a successful screenwriter, says Hollywood is looking for non-traditional stories likely to 
emerge from the imaginations of a diverse group of students.

been the generous financial aid pack-

doubles play and have 
ambitions of pushing 
Tulanc's streak to Uircc 
C-USA championships. 

Tra Boger 

Deva Fowler 

Dt'va Fowler journeyed all the way from San Diego 
w\ be a pan of Green Wave volleyball, and Head Coach 
Betsy Becker has been thankful for the Golden State 
girl ever since her arrival in 2001. As a freshman thc6- 
foot-2 middle blocker played in almost every match 
and led the team in solo blocks (22), block assists (S4) 
and total blocks { 106). In her sophomore season Fowler 
ranked third in C-USA with 1,15 blocks per game and 
posted a career-high 36 aces (second on the team). 

Fowler's junior year was even better than her first 
two, leading to great expectations for this season. After 
gaining honorable-mention All-Amcrican honors and 
being named to the C-USA all -conference Tirst-icam 
(team-best 4-14 kills, 39 aces, 173 total blocks). Fowler 
was voted to llic 2004 preseason C-USA all-conference 
team earlier this month. 

Lindsay Norman and Katie Case join Fowler as 
reluming starters for the Green Wave and the team is 
aiming for a C-USA championship. The preseason 
coaches' poll has Tulanc ranked fourth in the confer- 
ence, the highest preseason ranking in team history 

If Green Wave football has 
gained any reputation in recent 
years, it has been the ability to 
put points on the board; Tulane 
has affectionately been dubbed 
"Quarlerback U." after sending 
three gunslingcrs lo the NFL 
over the last six seasons (anoth- 
er team well-known for its 
passing prowess, the Florida 
Gators, lays claim to only one 
current NFL quarterback). 

Well, senior safety Tra 
Boger is tired of hearing about 
all this offense. In 2003. Soger 
was second-team All-C-USA 
while posting a career-high 133 
tackles and forcing four fumbles (third in C- 
US A). For the week of Sept. 1 3, Boger was 

both of them to make strong pitches for the 

2005 NFL Draft. While the Tulanc offense 

named conference player of the week after registered a respectable average of 28. 1 

forcing a fumble, recovering a fumble and 
recording 12 tackles in a 31-28 home win 
over Mississippi State, 

Now in 2004. Boger and teammate 
Roydcll Williams take center stage as 
scouts and experts around country expect 

points per game, the defense gave up a 
dreadful 35.3 points per game to opposi- 
tion. If the Green Wave eradicate memories 
of last year's 5-7 record, it will likely be 
due lo strong play from Boger and his fel- 
low defenders.

I'll get right to it. New Orleans 
is a wonderful place lo live, and 
Tulanc is a fine university, but this 
is not a sporls school. 

If athletics arc your primary 
concern in selecting a univcrstt)-, 
withdraw your enrollment, drive 
down Claiborne, hang a right on 
Carrollion and take I-IO West 
toward Baton Rouge. There you'll 
find LSU. a school whose sports 
teams receive unconditional sup- 
port and love from an enormous 
fan base. 

However, if you're literate 
enough to read this article you 
don't belong at a school like LSU, 
I'll also assume that you have most 
of your teeth and can count to at 
least eighi. 

Athletics work a little different- 
ly here than they do in Baton 
Rouge. Hardly anyone that goes to 
Tulane grew up watching and 
cheering for the Green Wave, 
Perhaps you heard of our football 
team when the 1998 squad (led by 
Shaun King, now with the Arizona 
Cardinals) went undefeated. 
Maybe you were aware of our 

recent quarterbacks Patrick 
Ramsey (Washington) and J, P. 
Losman (Buffalo) being drafted 
into die NFL. Other than that. I bet 
you rarely heard "Tulane" and 
"adileiics" in the same breath. 

Instead, I bet you grew up like I 
did. I was bom and raised in the 
northwest suburbs of Chicago, and 
my favorite college teams were the 
Northwestern Wildcats, DePaul 
Blue Demons and Illinois Fighting 
mini. Maybe you and your buddies 
grew up watching Syracuse bas- 
ketball or Miami football. That's 
understandable. That's the school 
you lived near, and a lot of you and 
your friends probably had aspira- 
tions of attending teams' 
games for four years (well, maybe 
five in some cases). 

I know I sure did. I had all kinds 
of aspirations of spending four 
years as pan of the Orange Krush 
student section at Assembly Hall 
in Champaign, III, In high school 
my friends and I seldom missed an 
mini basketball game, either on 
TV or in person. Had U of I played 
against Tulane during my fresh- 
man year. 1 probably would have 
pulled for the Blue and Orange.

Illinois. That may have been the 
team I grew up watching, but I 
don't go there I go to Tulane, A 
key reason student interest in 
Tulane is paltry is because a large 
percentage of the student body 
needs to come to terms with the 
fact thai they don't attend Boston 
College. Texas or USC. 

I don'i know if you'll make it 
here academically, but for howev- 
er long you stay at Tulane, your 
team is the Green Wave. There 
isn't much you can do about that. I 
havcn'i asked Athletic Director 
Rick Dickson, but I don't think we 
have any kind of negotiations in 
progress to lure the Huskies out of 
UConn, Tulanc football, Tulane 
basketball, Tulane baseball, etc... 
diese are your teams now. 

And these teams can be great. 
Our students seem to be learning 
this. These teams are as great as we 
make them. After all. how can 
Chris Scclfo recruit top football 
players when they come to games

Did you know there's a former 
Tuiane basketball player in the 

NBA? Linton Johnson, a small for- 
ward who graduated in 2003. now 
gets minutes with the Chicago 
Bulls- Last year when the Bulls 
came down to play the Hornets. 
Johnson spent game day strolling 
Tulane's campus to say hi to some 
old friends and coaches. 


Only at Tulanc could an NBA 
player walk the quads of his alma 
mater and go virtually unnoticed. 
Johnson and I had a good laugh 
about this in March, but when Ben 
Fisher, a correspondent of the 
Hullabaloo, asked him what he 
would tell Tulane students about 
supporting their sports teams, his 
lone turned despondent. 

"I just wish the fans were more 
interactive with the sporls," 
Johnson said. "They need to be. 
Put that in the paper the studenis 
are not interactive with the sports 

At Uiis point I have to amend 
my statement about Tulane not 
being a sports school. It's not a 
sports school unless you make it 
one. Our tennis teams and our 
baseball team are among the 
nation's best and with 65 slots to 
fill in both the NC,\A men's and 

women's basketball brackets, the 
question each year becomes. "Why 
not us?" Our football team has 
made two bowl appearances in the 
lust six seasons and currently has 
nine alumni in the NFL in the last 
six seasons. There is at least some 
reason for hope cvet^' year. 

And a word about the women's 
spons: they can play. I was pre- 
pared for the worst as I braced 
myself to cover the NCAA 
Women's Final Four at New 
Orleans Arena back in April, but 
all three games were superb. .As I 
saw the tremendous outpour of 
fanaticism for the LSU Lady 
Tigers, I wondered if our student 
body is even aware of the fact that 
our women's ba-sketball team has 
earned nine NCAA tournament 
berths in the last 10 seasons. 

It's more than just X's and O's 
at Tulane, too. Our men's basket- 
ball team is full of drama and per- 
sonality. Ever heard of The Finney 
Stomp? Oh, it gets good. Ever seen 
an omery five-year-old who does- 
n't get his way? Picture that, but in 
a .shirt and tic. There are several 
variations, but the usual is when 
Head Coach Shawn Finney crosses 
hi.'; arms, lifts both knees and then 

pounds his feet on the ground 
while he screams. The people who 
do attend these games (which are 
all free by the way. the perfect 
price for those of us who mort- 
gaged our house to afford tuition) 
find a lot to be intrigued by. 

The unique thing about Tulane 
athletics is that success is not 
determined by the players or the 
coaches. If die football team goes 
undefeated this year. I honestly 
think it's pointless unless the stu- 
dents care enough to go watch the 
games. Conversely, if the team 
goes .500 but we pack the 
Superdomc the best we can, that 
will speak volumes of our pro- 
gram. The responsibility of the 
Green Wave's success diis year, in 
every sport, falls squarely on us, 
the fans.

concerns over changes

Despile changes from lasl year, 
there has been a positive reaction lo 
this year's orieniation, most of which 
took place earlier this week. 

Programs for the new students 
that still have noi taken place are the 
Student Organizations Activities 
Expo on Ncwcomb Quad today from 
4 to 6 p.m.. the Welcome Party for 
inlemaiional students on the Tate 
House Patio today at 6 p.m. and Out- 
reach Tulane at DiboU Conference 
Center tomorrow at 9 a.m. Director 
for New Student Programs Biilye 
Potts said all the events so far have 
gone very well. 

"I have heard a lot of great things 
from parents," Potts said. "Parents 
know that they are leaving their chil- 
dren in good hands." 

While Potts did not attend every 
event, she looked in on a lot of the 
events and roamed around the resi- 
dence hall areas while freshmen were 
mo\Tng in. She talked lo parents who 
were concerned prior lo coming to 
Tulane. However, their apprehen- 
sions were relie\'ed upon their aiTi\'al . 

One of the biggest compliments 
Potts received pertained to the move- 
in process. A parent told Potts that 
she had two children at other schools, 
and of al! three schools, Tulane had 
the most organized move-in day.

Army ROTC and other volunteers

The football Head Coach Chris 
Scelfo said, "It was a lot of hard work, 
but [the players] enjoyed it. They 


sweated a lot but they got to meet 
new friends." He asked the players 
to volunteer and most seemed inter- 
ested. Scelfo wanted the players to 

be "more a part of the campus life" 
and for freshmen to meet them. 


Tulane receives

Awash in cash as well as grati- 
tude, Netscape co-founder Jim Clark 
and Yahoo co-founder David Filo 
announced their combined contri- 
butions of S60 million to Tulane Uni- 
versity July 29, 

Lumping the two S30 million gifts 
together makes the largest single as 
well as combined donation in the his- 
tory of Tulane University, 

Destined for the University's 
mushrooming endowment - now 
nearly S722 million - the donations 
are anticipated to finance the edu- 
cation of some 100 students, and gifts 
are to be awarded for academic merit. 

Both Clark and Filo attended 
Tulane University as undergradu- 
ates, and while Clark ultimately 
earned his bachelor's elsewhere, 
Louisiana native Filo earned a Bach- 
elor of Science in computer engi- 
neering. He is also a member of the 
Board of Advisors for the School 
of Engineering. 

"I attended Tulane's engineering 
school on a scholarship, so this is my 
way of showing my gratitude for the 

wonderful education I received," Filo 
said. "I hope this will inspire others 
to support the School of Engineer- 
ing and the University as a whole. 
Tulane is a great university with the 
poientiat to be second to none among 
the nation's most important educa- 
tional and research institutions." 

The announcement, with its finan- 
cial and historical significance, elicit- 
ed cheers of thanks from Tulane 
administrators. "These gifts which 
Jim and David made without fanfare 
or expectation of acclaim reflect an 
extraordinary commitment to our 
goals and vision and will impact our 
institution for years to come," Cathy 
Pierson, chair of the Board of Tulane, 

"Their gifts indicate that, like us, 
they view Tulane as an outstanding 
university on the cusp of becoming 
one of the nation's premier institu- 
tions," Tulane University President 
Scoti Cowen said, echoing Pierson's 
hopefial sentiment. Cowen places the 
enormous private contributions firm-

The Tulane University Senate

Coleman, who graduated from 
Tulane lasl spring, drafted and spon-

The policy docs not include any 
sanctions or censures against those 
involved in a consensual relation-

The Policy on Consensu-

to graduate stiidents who are

Report shows 
increase in crime 

Based on the "Annual Security 
Report for 2003" published in the 
Sept. 2004 issue of "Keeping Tulane 
Secure" by Tulane University's 
Department of Public Safety, crime 
affecting campus rose in the past 

Broken down into 16 categories 
ranging from criminal homicide to 
disciplinary referrals, the crime report 
compares the past three years in order 
to view trends in crimes committed. 
Every group defined in the report 
experienced an increase last year 
except burglary, which was nearly 
cut in half. 

Categories that saw a particular- 
ly large jump included motor vehi- 
cle theft, up by 1 75 percent; arrests 
for drug-related violations, up by 50 
percent; and liquor law violations, 
up by 54 percent. 

Addressing the sharp increase in 
dmg-relaled incidents last year. Direc- 
tor of Public Safety Ken Dupaquier 
said the composition of the incom- 
ing class shapes what type of crimes 
are committed on and around cam- 

"The fluctuation in types of crimes 
is indicative of the new class every 
year," Dupaquier said. 

Concerning the surge in motor 
vehicle theft, Dupaquier explained 
that a stipulation recently passed 
requires officials to label unautho- 
rized use of equipment as car theft. 
As a result, Tulane University Police 
Department was forced to add a con- 
siderable number of violations. 

Unauthorized use of equipment 
applies lo situations where a person 
without proper permission engages 
in the operation ofa unit requiring 
permission by a Tulane organization. 

Along with the slew ofstaiistics 
is a detailed description of terms used 
within the report, as well as a brief 
paragraph explaining that Tulane 
Public Safety puts logciher the crime 
report using information gathered 
from both fomial and informal reports. 

The report includes a wealth of 
information on classes one can take 
to be safe, including "Preventing 

assault," Rape Aggression Defense 
System and "Living in the Big Easy." 
Within the report there is also a reil- 
eraiion of policies that most direct- 
ly affect the student population, such 
as the drug and alcohol policies, and 
a note directed towards those who 
use illegal drugs. 

New laws passed by the Louisiana 
Legislatim; over the summer are also 
mentioned in the report Tliese include 
requiring motorcyclists to wear hel- 
mets, prohibiting open alcohol con- 
tainers in motor vehicles and alter- 
ing freeway driving so that the left 
lane is for passing only. Dupaquier 

"[TUPD], as a law enforcement 
agency, has not slopped many stu- 
dents on campus who were under the 
influence of alcohol." he said. 
Dupaquier also said careless behav- 
ior in the residence halls causes a 
large number of on-campus crimes. 
He sfrongly encourages students to 
take preventative measures such as 
locking one's door and not putting 
valuable possessions in highly visi- 
ble places. He notes that there is a 
first line of defense in many resi- 
dence halls: the front desk. 

"We continue to have thefts in the 
residence halls," Dupaquier said.

explained the changes lo the open 
container low, 

"Basically, the old law allowed 
the passengers to have an open con- 
tainer of alcohol," Dupaquier said. 
"The new law reads that no one in 
the vehicle may be in possession of 
an open container of alcohol." 

The effect of this new law on cam- 
pus will be negligible, Dupaquier 

"That's not someone coming in from 
Ihe outside."

vices offered by TUPD; officer escorts

The Tulane Hullabaloo 

Fowler looks to 
finish strong on 
court, in class 

Senior seeks to outdo last year's 

breakthrough season 

iports tiittoT 

When senior Devu Fowler first 
arrived in New Orteuns, she was u 
lililc bewildered, Alter growing 
up in quiet San Diego, she was 
now in a city that rarely ever finds 
itsctr in the same sentence us the 
word quiei. 

"I was really shellcrctl by my 
parents when I was growing up," 
Fowler said. "I needed to get up 
and get out of my comfort zone. 
New Orleans is a wild place, so 
I'm thankful for everything Ihcy 
laught mc." 

\Vhile Fowler was a bil wide- 
eyed at the New Orleans commu- 
nity, it did not take her long to get 
comfortable on the volleyball 
court. Perhaps more imponant 
than the individual accolades 
Fowler accumulated in high 
school is the fact thai she learned 
how 10 win. She led San Diego's 
University City High School to a 
Division 11 state championship in 
2000 and starred on the very suc- 
cessful Sun West Club for two 

"She came in knowing how to 
win," Head Coach Betsy Becker 
said. "She knows she's a good 
player, ond she strives to back it 
up on the court everyday." 

Although she received an hon- 
orable mention for the All- 
American team last season. 
Fowler was not yet the complete 
player Becker knew she could be. 
The reason Fowler may not have 
been fully developed os a player 
quite yet was due lo the fact that 
she did not start playing volley- 
ball until her freshman year of 
high school. Most collegiate vol- 
leyball players, particularly those 
in the upper echelon, have been 
playing on club teams since ihey 
were very young, 

"I actually wanted to be a 
cheerleader." Fowler said. "But 
the JV coach, Kelly Plait, said, 
'We've got lo get you on the vol- 
leyball court.' It was funny 
because I was always off away 
from the Icom and messing up 
drills. I was a little bil awkward; 1 
didn't gel ii." 

After struggling through ihe 

learning process — parliculurK 
learning the rules — in her fresh- 
man year, Fowler made a big 
impact in her sophomore sea.son. 
She was named the most 
improved player on her team and 
began lo draw interest from club 

"As a younger player she had .i 
nice mix of size and athleticism, 
but now she's got the menu! 
toughness us well," Becker said 
"She's just a phenom now. She ^ 
become a leader." 

A year later she began intrigu- 
ing college scouts. Top California 
volleyball programs like Southern 
California. Pepperdinc and Long 
Beach Slate all came catling, but 
Fowler knew it wus time for a 
change of scenery. 

"I'd just lived in California for 
too long." she said, "I was more 
interested in schools like 
Michigan, Wisconsin and Texas 
A&M than the California 

All of those schools showed 
interest in recruiting her, but 
Fowler really saw herself fitting 
in with the Tulane coaching staff 
and particularly with the city of 
New Orieans. 

"Tulane was actually at the 
very end of my list; I didn't even 
know where it was at first," she 
said. "After meeting the coaching 
staff, though, it realty seemed like 
they were committed to putting a 
winning team out there. 

"I really liked the city too. San 
Diego is very separated; it has 
white neighborhoods and black 
neighborhoods, but not very 
many mixed areas. New Orleans 
is a melting pot of race and cul- 
ture. I've learned a lol from living 

In all likelihood. Fowler 
admits that this will probably be 
her last season of competitive 
volleyball. With thai in mind, and 
with Tulane boasting what could 
possibly be the best squad in 
school history. Fowler is as moti- 
vated as she has ever been in her 
quest to finally lead Tulane lo the 
NCAA loumameni, a feat never 


Volleyball anticipates best 
season in history 


sports editor 

After compiling a 45-19 record 
over the last two seasons. Head 
Coach Betsy Becker has her team 
ready lo make the jump from good 
to great, Tulane was ranked fourth 
in Conference USA (the team's 
highesi preseason ranking ever) by 
the preseason coaches' poll. The 
Green Wave brought in a talented 
group of freshmen and transfer 
students lo mesh with a seasoned 
core of upperclassmen. Thus far. 
the assimilation has been a suc- 

"We have a lot of newcomers. 
but we've been able to meld and 
fuse the new personalities wiih Ihc 
old ones," Becker said. "We've 
really stressed playing as a team." 

In fact, Becker has been stress- 
ing teamwork since February. 
when the Green Wave began its 
six-week spring practice session, 
The NCAA allows Division-I 
women's volleyball teams to prac- 
tice 20 hours a week for six weeks. 
Typically, Becker's spring session 

is low-intensity and focuses on 
improving individual skills, but 
this year she took a different 

"It's usually been a lighter load 
in past spring practices, but this 
year we tightened it up and worked 
hard for all 20 hours each week." 
she said. "We were all business 
everyday. This year we also did 
absolutely no individual work. We 
did alt 20 hours as a team." 

One of the top new players on 
the team is sophomore Blair 
Moon, daughter of longtime NFL 
quarterback Warren Moon. 
Coming out of high school, Moon 
chose to sign with Georgia Tech 
and was named to the ACC fresh- 
man all-conference team. 
However, after some coaching 
changes and less playing time than 
she desired, Moon spent last year 
at Houston Junior College before 
transferring to Tulane this fall. 

"Her athletic prowess is great," 
Becker said, "Her arm swing is 
amazing: It goes in hyper-speed." 

Tulane also boasts talented out- 
side hitters Lindsey Norman and 

Iman Houston. 

Additionally, the Green Wave 
returns with senior middle blocker 
Dcva Fowler. Fowler received 
honorable-mention All-American 
last year when she led Tulane with 
444 kills, 173 total blocks and 39 
aces. In what could be her final 
season of competitive volleyball, 
Fowler's goal is to lead the Green 
Wave to its first NCAA louma- 
meni appearance in history, 

"When I got here the coaches 
told us, 'Vou guys will be the pio- 
neers,"' Fowler said. "This past 
spring was really a challenge for 
us. We got pushed to the highest 
level and we just couldn't wail for 
it 10 end, but looking back I'm glad 
we did It. We have a greai oppor- 
tunity this year," 

. Fowler and the other attackers 
will rely heavily on the ability of 
the team's pass defense and junior 
setter Katie Case. 

"If you can pass, you can play 
at any level." Becker said. "We' vc 
certainly got to fill in a void now 
that Carlyn Daly is gone (due to 
graduation]. This team isn't as 

strong as it was last year when we 
were the top defensive team in the 
conference, but it is capable of sur- 
passing last year's performance." 

With six days Icfl before the 
Green Wave opens the season 
against Prairie View (Wednesday 
6 p.m., Fogelman Arena). Becker 
is pleased with the effon in prac- 
tice but insists thai she has not yet 
seen her team play its besi. 

"We're making noise now. but 
by the time the season starts we 
want to be making music," Becker 
said. "Our core group of juniors 
and seniors feel it. though. 
They're sick of not being satisfied 
at the end of the season. Everyday 
we talk about making [ihe NCAA 

With the high rankings and high 
expectations, Becker figures on 
facing tougher opposition this year 
than in her pre\ious five seasons as 
head coach. 

"The X on your back gets a lot 
larger when you have such a high 
preseason ranking," she said. 
"Every team is going to bring its 
best game when they play us."

Coming off an 11-7-0 season, 
compared to 31-39-3 over the pre- 
vious four seasons, the Green Wave 
has turned its sights toward a 
Conference USA championship. 

While Tulane does have a fairly 
youthful soccer team this year (18 
of the 26 players are freshmen and 
sophomores), it returns its top two 
offensive producers and its starting 

"Recently we've been in a sort 
of rebuilding stage, but I told our 
team thai 1 don't really think we're 
there anymon:." Head Coach Betsy 
.•Vnderson said. "People might look 
at out roster and say thai we have a 
y oung learn, bul we have an experi- 
enced team in that last season we 
had six freshmen in our starting 
lineup at one point" 

Sophomore midfielder Jackie 
Obert returns to the Green Wave 
after one of the most outstanding 
nxikie campaigns in school history. 
She was the second leadmg scorer 
on the team with fi\'e goals and iwo 
assists and earned third-team oll- 
confcrencc and C-USA all-frcsh- 
man honors.

cleared this week," Anderson said. 
"She's looking strong now. and we 
anticipate her filling the same role 
she did for us last year." 

One of the most interesting off- 
season developments for the Green 
Wave was the hiring of goaltending 
expert Paul Rogers. Rogers comc.^ 

to Tulane from Brighton, England, 
and Anderson believes his coaching 
is having a profound effect on 
returning goalie Megan Morcy. 

"She's really worked the 
defense in blending individual per- 
sonalities," Anderson said. "Morey 
understands our system of play 

She's been in a great situation with 

Rogers, who played ai the profes- 
sional level on the men's side. 
She's been trained by some excel- 
lent keepers, and this has been a 
great situation for her to be in." 

Anderson is also e,\cited about 
the possibilities of some of her new 
freshmen. Rookies Brianna 
Buffingion tSan Diego) and Megan 
Weinlem (Dallas) are both expect- 
ed lo compete for significant play- 
ing time. 

"(Buffington] is ihc fastest play- 
er in our program; she's got to be in 
the top five in our conference as far 
as her speed is concerned," 
Anderson said. "Weinlein can play 
in the midfield and she can play in 
the back, so we anticipate that 
she'll be in there somewhere for 

Just two days before ihe team's 
opening game. .Anderson was still 
uncertain about her starting line-up. 
The team has so much depth that 
many positions will be shared by 
what she calls interchangeable

Outreach Tulane brings 
unprecedented numbers 

ioiwr siajf^entir 

Nine-hundred five volunleers 
showed up lo the I4ih annual Oui- 
reach Tulane lasi Saturday. 

Volunleers gave much-needed 
aid to various community organiza- 
tions, while expanding Iheir per- 
spectives of the volunteer possibili- 
ties around the New Orleans area. 
Sites that hosted volunteers through 

urday morning, registered for their 
sites, were given brcakfest and heard 
opening remarks from Hamilton 
Simons-Jones, the director of Com- 
munity Service Coordination. 

"When everyone was all togeth- 
er in the morning, it was the first time 
in my career at Tulane that I've felt 
like a pan of a unified student body," 
Daniel Barnes, a resident advisor 
who volunteered his time by clean- 
ing gutters at the Arc of Greater New 

doors and helped with minor repair 
in the school's rooms and hallways. 

Scheduled for the first Saturday 
morning of the academic year, the 
event was expected to yield a high 
turnout. The participants were pleas- 
antly surprised, however, at the vari- 
ety of students who chose to attend. 
"The groups were well-mixed, and 
it turned out to be a great way to meet 
people," Ali said.

The Outreach Tidane program began 
14 years ago and has grown substan- 
tially in the past years. Simons- Jones 
said his goal for this year was to gel 
1 .000 people to volunteer, and that goal 
was missed by only 95 volunleers. 

Senior RA Chase Hahn said he 
participated in the program this year 
partly because it was so well pro- 

"It was my first lime to partici- 
pate in Outreach Tulane," HaJin said. 

the program mcluded 
the Audubon Zoo, local 
schools and Habitat for 
Humanity projects. The 
work ranged from land- 
scaping to painting, 
building and repairing. 

The one -day volun-

organizations such as the Division of 
Student .^flairs. Office of Student Pro- 
grams, and Community Action Coun-

staff members with local non-profit 
and community organizations.

Nadaa Ali, a sophomore RA who 
participated in the event said, "This 
was my first time going to Outreach 
Tulane. This was on a huge level; 
ever>'one pulled through." 

Ali's group was assigned to John 
McDonough Senior High School, 
where ihcy repainted entrances and 

ing organizations were able to intro- 
duce studenis to the involvement 
availabilities and opportunities around 
the city as well as spur interest in vol- 
unteering throughout the rest of the 
year. According lo the Tulane Uni- 
versity Community Service website, 
students perform over 40,000 hours 
of community sen'ice each year. 

"and it was a really 
good time. I wasn't 
sure what to expect, 
but it was great. I 
would definitely rec- 
ommend that other 
studenis participate 
next year." 
Students could register to volun- 
teer at the site of their choice ahead 
of time, go with a residence group 
led by an RA, or come alone and be 
assigned a volunteer site. 

CACTUS lists over 20 volunteer 
programs on its website, all of which 
are hosted by student project coor- 

Student Affairs welcomes new 

Jaclyn Rosenson 


The Division of Student Affairs 
has new faces helping out students. 

The new additions include grad- 
uate intern Adrienne Mustiful and 
Coordinator of Lesbian, Gay. Bisex- 
ual and Transgender Student Life 
Emily Chaupis to the Office of Stu- 
dent Programs. The Office of Stu- 
dent Affairs welcomed familiar face 
Billye Potts, director of New Student 
Programs, from her previous posi- 
tion in Newcomb College. Carolyn 
Barber- Pierre, assistant vice presi- 
dent for Student Affairs and direc- 
tor of Student Programs has stepped 
down as director of the Office of Mul- 
ticultural Affairs and Luther Buie 
has been promoted to the position. 

In the Office of Student Programs 
Adncnnc Mustiful has been hired for 
the fall semester lo get hands-on expe- 
rience with students and student orga- 
nizations, and lo assist in the pro- 

grjmmaiic side of the office; she will 
report to Lake Laosebikan-Buggs, 
associate director of Student Pro- 
grams. Mustiful is currently a doc- 
toral student at the University of New 
Orleans, and is working on a disser- 
tation about the persistence of Afiicar> 
American males in four-year acad- 
emic instimtions, 

Mustiful said she is most looking 
forward to "interaction with students 
while they are here." A friend 
informed her about ihe opportunity 
of the internship, and she said she 
felt Tulane was different from any 
institution she had worked with. 

She has "really enjoyed her stay 
, . . and everyone in the office of stu- 
dent programs has been willing to 
help [her] learn." Mustiful said. She 
hopes to graduate fi-om UNO in May 
and pursue a career in student affairs. 

The position of director of Cam- 
pus Programming and Special Pro- 
jects is currently vacant. The previ- 
ous director, Tom Stephens, was let 

go during the summer. 

"We are trying lo move the depart- 
ment in a different direction, bring 
in some new vision and some new 
leadership to that position," Barber- 
Pierre said. 

Buggs, who previously held the 
position, will serve as advisor to the 
Association of Programming and 
Performance Organizations until tlic 
position is filled. The Office of Shi- 
dent Programs is currently advertis- 
ing for the position and developing 
a search committee of students, fac- 
ulty and slafT. Barber-Pierre under- 
stands ihis is a hard lime lo recruit 
and said that they will not settle for 
a candidate just lo gel the position 

Another position moved within 
Student Programs is that of Tel Bail- 
liet, director of Student Media and 
Publications. Bailliet is currently 
splitting her time between the Stu- 
dent Programs office in Central Build- 
ing and the media organizations offices 

in Monk Simons. 

"We hate to split our staff, but 
stipulations of the [FCC] license [for 
WTUL] require her to be there." Bar- 
ber-Pierre said. 

An addition lo the Office of Mul- 
ticultural Affairs is Emily Chaupis. 
the coordinator of LGBT student life. 
Chaupis started in early August m a 
part-time capacity. The job is a per- 
manent addirion to the Office of Mul- 
ticultural Affaiis, Chapuis" job descrip- 
tion includes advising MOSAIC, the 
gay-straight alliance, other LGBT 
studenis and helping Multicultural 
Affairs with celebratory weeks. 

Chapuis' goals arc lo develop a 
faculty advisory board to review poli- 
cies and create a safe zone project. 
She wants lo create a safe zone so 
students know they have a commu- 
nity on campus and wants people lo 
be aware of that community. She 
would eventually like to see a queer 


New alcohol 
policy put into 
effect on 

Kate Dearing 


Approved by the Tulane Univer- 
sity Senate last May, the new alco- 
holic beverage policy brings changes 
to the University's stance on alco- 
hol consumption. 

With more details and specifica- 
tions for easier reading, the new pol- 
icy modifies the Universi^'s approach 
lo alcohol abuse. It also gives rules 
tlial comply with Louisiana state laws 
and guidelines for on-and-off cam- 
pus events that involve alcohol. 

The biggest change deals with 
faculty and staff. They are required 
to follow the policy and cannot buy 
alcohol for students under 21 or con- 
sume alcohol ifthey are not21 tliem- 
selves. The consequences for these 
actions are now more severe as the 
University tries to make everyone in 
the Tulane community equally respon- 
sible for following the new rules. 

"As an academic community, we 
have lo set standards together," vice 
President for Student Affairs Cyn- 
thia Cherrey said, "and with that we 

all have to be responsible together 
in order lo create a strong and healthy 

Most of these rules have remained 
the same as in the previous policy, 
Some of the stipulations of Ihe pol- 
icy are that students who are under 
2 1 cannot purchase or drink alcohol, 
students or persons over 2 1 cannot 
buy alcohol for someone under 2 1 
unless they are the parent or guardian, 
and events that serve alcohol have 
lo follow stale laws as well as school 

The new policy includes a provi- 
sion for the new Housing and Resi- 
dence Life department called Alco- 
hol Education Initiatives Program, 
which educates studenis about Ihc 
alcohol policy on campus and orga- 
nizes events for students who want 
an alternative to the social atmos- 
phere that involves drinking. 

The new policy also brings an end 
to the rule that was in effect three 
years ago which stated that "con- 
sumption of alcohol in private resi-

Nader addresses Law School students 

Bryan Cote 

sfmor lUiJfwrilcr 

Public interest lawyer and presi- 
dential candidate Ralph Nader made 
a campaign stop at ihc Tulane cam- 
pas last Friday and spoke to a packed 
room in Wcinmann Hall. 

Nader first lectured to ihe students 
about his cxpcncncc with the nation's 
law. During this lime, Nader talked 
about being a student at Harvard I-aw 

"There was a joke they used to tell," 
he said. "In the morning, ihcy teach 
you how to contract the law of torts, 
and in the afternoon, ihcy leach you 
10 distort the law of contracts," 

Nader urged the students lo avoid 
corporate law. which he railed against 
oflcninhislimcin front of the group, 

"When you work at a corporate 

law firm, you leave your conscience 
at home." Nader .said. "You don't do 
what you would like to do. You do 
what the client wants you to do." 

By contrast, he urged his listeners 
to defend the rights of the poor in this 

"Ask yourself, can poor people 
really use ihc legal system?" he said. 
'To what extent is ihc law a tool of 

Once his cxhortalioas to the aowd 
-mostly firjt-ycar law students -were 
finished. Nader opened Ihe floor to 
questions. At this point, Nader's talk 
transformed from a law lecture lo a 
political discussion, Nader told the 
aowd his candidacy n:prcscntcd Amer- 
ican freedom of choice, specifically 
a choice other than the nation's two 
major political parlies. 

"There arc a few major differences 

between ihe pa/ties," he said, "but the "He's like a giani corporation resid-

the dwindling differences," 

Nader did not hold back when dis- 
cussing President George W. Bush. 

But Nader did nol liirow 
his weight behind Democ- 
ratic presidential nominee 
John Kerry cither, 

"As progressive as he 
was in the primaries, he's 
gone backwards in the past 
five weeks," he said. "(Bush] 
is so bad he pulls down Kcr- 

ry's standards," 

Nader also denied his 
campaign was receiving any sorl of 
support from the Republican Party, a 
charge leveled againsi him by ihc 


"We're nol taking any organized 
support or money," he said. "The 
Republicans in Michigan paid for ?00 
signatures to gel us on the ballot, and 
we're not taking any of them," 

The crowd was comprised most- 
ly of Tulane Law students, with cam- 
paign supporters from the area also 
in attendance. 

"I figured the room would be filled, 
but I didn'i count on the overflow," 
Wendy Scott, vice dean of Student 
Affaire in the Law School, said, "Given 
the short notice, I think wc had a good 

Scoll and others were forced lo 
make hurried preparations and could 
not fijlly promote the event, as the visit 
was only finalized earlier in the week. 

"Wc only had about three or four 
days," Scott said. "Wc tried to gel ihc 

word out to as many as possible in 

that time." 

Nader's speech was not his first 
Tulane appearance. Scott said he had 
previously spoken during a Law School 
commencement and had given guest 
Icchires at the school. 

"We have had him speak to the stu- 
dents before as an attorney and I think 
that was pretty much the gist of his 
speech." Scoll said. "The students 
might have expected him to give some 
type of election speech. That was prob- 
ably refreshing, in a way. for them lo 
hear him speak as a lawyer," 

Nader, running as an independent 
this year, was the Green Party candi- 
date for the presidency in 2000. Nader 
is also a renowned public inloest lawyer, 
whose book "Unsafe at Any Speed" 
helped reform govcmmcninl controls 
on automobile .safely during the t960s.

2003 football season a 

Last fall was a hopeful time for 
Wave Nation, Coming off a suc- 
cessful 8-5 campaign and an 
impressive bowl victory, hopes 
were high for the senior-dominated 
Tulane foolball about to 
embark on a new sea.son. 
Quarterback J. P. Losman 
and running back MewclJe 
Moore, both seniors, were 
poised to finish their college 
careers by leading the Green 
Wave to a second consecu- 
tive winning season and a 
bowl appearance, but their 
hopes were unrealized. 
thanks to a rash of defensive 
injuries and inconsistent 

The 2003 Wave squad 
finished the season at 5-7. a 
disappointing end to those 
lofty goals. While there 
were some high points 
including Moore's rccoui 
breaking performances .inJ 
an upset over Mississippi 
State, its first victory over a 
SEC foe in 25 attempts, 
there were also some awful 
lows. A five-game losing 
streak hampered the middle 
stretch of the campaign and 
effectively ended all bowl 
hopes. That stretch included a 
heartbreaking homecoming loss to 
Houston in the gloom of Tad 
Gormtey Stadium and a trashing at 
the hands of Texas. 

The final blow to the already 
hopeless season came when the 
greatest running back in the histo- 
ry of the University. Mewelde 

Moore, broke his hand in garbage 
time of a 35-17 loss to Navy, end- 
ing his season and Tulane career 
three games shorter than he 
should have. Moore is the all-Umc 
leading rusher and all-purpose 
yardage leader in Tulane history, 
and he holds 24 individual school 
records, He is one of only two

players in Division l-A history' to 
gain 4,000 rushing yards and 
2.000 receiving yards in a career. 
He ranks 1 1 ih on the Division l-A 
all-purpose yards list with 6,505 
yards in his college tenure. Moore 
was selected in the third round of 
the NFL Draft by the Minnesota 
Vikings and is currently fighting 

for a roster spot. 

The season ended on a high note 
with a 28-18 victory over East 
Carolina in front of the home 
crowd. Quarterback J.P. Losman 
ended his college career by throw- 
ing four touchdown passes to finish 
the season with 33 and over 3,000 
passing yards to lead Conference 
USA in both categories. He 
left Tulane ranked in the top 
four of ever)' major passing 
and total offense category'. 
Losman was drafted with 
the 22nd pick in the first 
round of die NFL Draft by 
the Buffalo Bills, becoming 
the highest drafted quarter- 
back in school histor>'. 
While working hard to 
become the Bills' backup

The 2003 season began 
with a near upset of eventu- 
al C-USA champion TCU 
before the Wave won three 
straight over Nonhwcsiem 
State. Mississippi State and 
Army. The five-game los- 
ing streak dien set in with 
losses at Texas. Louisville 
and Navy to go along widi 
home losses to Houston 
and Memphis. A win at 
U AB and a loss at Southern 
Mississippi led to the final game of 
the season, a home win versus East 

The squad scored 337 points on 
die 12-gamc campaign while allow- 
ing 424 points agmnst. All seven 
losses came lo bowl-bound teams. 
The Wa\ e was 3-3 at home and 2-4 
on the raid. 

Tulane vs. Miss State 

ionln billing writer 

Tulane's first game against 
Mississippi Slate should be a good 
test of whether die team has been 
able to correct any of the problems 
they had last season. Tulane has a 
rclaUvely young team, with only 
12 seniors returning, while 60 
underclassmen made the team. 

This shouldn't be a problem if 
those seniors can provide a strong 
example for their younger team- 
mates to live up to. 

Look for the offense to have a 
big game tomonow. While losing 
two big playmakcrs in quarterback 

Senior Chris Bush hauled in ttvo touch- 
down passes in Tulane's 31-28 ivin ovei 
Mississippi State last year. 

J.P. Losman and running back 
Mewelde Moore hurls, they are 
still in a good position as the sea- 
son starts. 

Sophomore Lester Ricard 
might not have experience as a 
college quarterback, but his natu- 
ral athleticism should hold him 

Additionally, his receiving 
corps, led by Roydell Williams, is 
very strong and, against a young 
Mississippi St. secondary, should 
be counted on to come up with a 
couple of big plays. 

The Tulane running attack 
should have a good game as well. 
Jovon Jackson showed 

promise last year filling in 
for Moore while the latter 
was injured, and the entire 
starting line is returning for 
Tulane. Facing them will be 
a young group from 
Mississippi St. 

The Bulldog line has had 
trouble in the past few years 
,igainst both die pass and 
die run. This year does not 
look lo be much different, at 
least until the younger play- 
ers get some more experi- 

Defensively, Tulane 
might have a more difficult 
lime. While the secondary- 
is set. with strong safety Tra 
Boger leading a group of 
potential all-stars, the line 
Lould be trouble. Last year 
injuries forced many of the 
vcierans to sit games and 
inexperienced players to 
step up. with predictable 

The outlook was belter 

this year however, die loss of 
Bamm Mateen is not what Tulane 
needed, Mateen was expected to 
be a leader on the line, and without 
him, they will have difficulty get- 
ting to die quanerback, 

Mississippi St. is coming off a 
2-10 record with a new coach. 
Sylvester Croom, Croom has a 
lough task ahead of him in tr>'ing 
to get his offense clicking. Over 
the final four games of last season, 
it averaged just 5.4 points a game. 

To fix this, Croom has chosen 
sophomore Omarr Conner as his 
starting quanerback. While 
Conner played at that position in 
high school, he has spent his col- 
lege career at wide receivers, 

Tulane's experienced second- 
ary should have a good game 
against Conner as he adjusts to 
college ball. His choices in plays 
might be limited, as Mississippi St 
has no true siar on offense. The 
running backs are nothing spectac- 
ular, and the wide receivers have 
limited playing experience going 
in to the game. 

The Mississippi St. defense is 
similarly lacking in big-name 
players, though with seven return- 
ing starters diey aren't to be count- 
ed out. All in all. prospects are 
good for Tulane to register its first 
win in Siarkville in over a decade. 

This game should be a nice 
tune-up for Scelfo, giving him an 
opportunity to make sure every- 
thing is chcking before heading 
into a tough conference schedule. 

Look for Tulane to conunuc a 
recent trend, with die offense mak- 
ing big plays and scoring points, 
and the defense doing just enough 
to keep ihcm in the game.

Escaping Hurricane Ivan 

Threat of Ivan forces University to 
close, campus to evacuate 

Brad Nelson and Leah Barber 

ncwi co-edilon 

Universiiy officials cancelled classes and ordered 
the Tulane community to evacuafe ihc campus Sept. 1 3 
as Hurricane Ivan approached New Orleans from the 

Many students, facultj' and stafT had their own evac- 
uation plans, but some remained on campus in the Reily 
Student Recreation Center while others were 
bused to Jackson Stale University. 

This was the first year the University 
enacted a plan to evacuate students ofT cam- 
pus. In years past, students had been relo- 
cated to Buder, Sharp and Monroe residence 
halls m the case of an emergency, 

Yci Hurricane Ivan, the storm Jefferson 
Parish President Aaron Broussard said would 
either be "a punch in the mouth or a kick in 
the knee," brought only light rain. 

Originally heading northwest in the Gulf 
of Mexico, Ivan veered back east, hitting the 
coast of Alabama, sparing New Orleans. The 
city felt only mild effects of the storm with 
hea\7 winds and scattered rain before the 
storm blew over midday Wednesday. 

The residence halls reopened last Satur- 
day at 2 p jn. to a campus that looked unlouched. 
But students and faculty said they thought 
evacuation was the right decision. 

"We'd rather be safe than sorry," Stacey 
McDowell, a fifth-year architecture snident. 
said. "A storm has never come so close [to 
campus] since I've been here. It takes so long 
to get out of the city, if it did hit, we would- 
n't be able to get out quickly. Il had to be 

As people lefl the city Sept. 14. traffic was 
backed up for hours, even af^er State Police 
put a "contraflow" plan into effect. The plan 
opened all lanes of 1-10 to westbound traffic 
for a 1 3-inile stretch, starting al the outskirts 
of Jefferson Parish. 

At Tulane, however, 
■'the evacuation went 
incrediblywell."Dr. Dan 
Nadlcr, associate vice pres- 
ident for student affairs, 

Although four class 
days were canceled, there 
will be no makeup days 
added to the end of ihe 
semester or the school year. 

"It's out of our control 
what happens with the 
weather," Ncwcomb junior 
Kaelyn Dillard said. "And 
a lot of professors have 
already adjusted their 
schedules to compensate " 

"An emergency evac- 
uation certainly breaks up 
the rhytJmi of classes and 
University programs, but 
a positive aspect of Ihc 
evacuation was thai it pro- 
vided many opportunities 

for cohesion and unity as everyone shared experiences 
and looked out for one another," Nadler said. 

Some students said they used the opportunity to make 
an impromptu visit to a friend's place, either by them- 
selves or in groups. Older students had the advantage 
of having a car to leave in, while many freshmen resort- 
ed to flying. 


Ivan floods, blows apart Gulf Coast, 
killing at least 52 people 

Gary Fineout and Martin Merzer 

Kiiig/U Riddcr Nempapm (Pensacola, Flo.) 

Twenty died and thousands begged for help. Count- 
less buildings were crushed or damaged, many by a roar- 
ing swarm of tornadoes. The Gulf of Mexico swept away 
beachfront homes and invaded downtown Pensacola, 

Hurricane Ivan slowly loosened its grip last Thurs- 
day on Ihe Gulf Coast, revealing a vista of sprawling 

destruction. The storm's core punched the coast in Alaba- 
ma but delivered its worst blows to an already battered 

Hundreds of homes in the Florida Panhandle were 
damaged by at least 1 2 tornadoes, hundreds more were 
de-roofed by Ivan's powerfiil winds, ^and many others 
along the coast were swamped by its 10- to 16-foot storm 
surge, lopped by thunderous waves. Power was knocked 
out to 345,000 homes and businesses in eight Florida 
counties and more than one million in odier stales. Most 
people in Pensacola and Ihe rest of hardesi-hii 
Escambia County also were without water, tele- 
phones or even reliable sewer service, 

"It's the worst thing I've ever seen in my 
life," Escambia County SherifTRon McNesby 
said, "It's not as bad as Andrew, but it's a bad 

Damage assessments were inhibited by the 
storm's slow retreat and blocked roads, but 
some insurance experts issued estimates of S3 
billion to SIO billion. 

A 30-foot section of a bridge along Inter- 
state 1 in Florida crumbled and fell into Escam- 
bia Bay, delaying desperately needed aid. The 
Irailerporlionof a tractor-trailer rested at the 
edge of the void, the tractor portion gone, the 
driver's fate unknown. 

Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said: "Sadly, I think 
there will be more loss of life." 

He said 2,000 National Guard troops were 
en route to Pensacola, as were search and res- 
cue teams. "Help is on Ihe way," Bush said. 

Authorities said the storm killed al least 1 3 
people in the Florida Panhandle, including four 
who died when a twister ripped into a mobile 
home park in Blounisiown, 40 miles northeasi 
of Panama Cit>', The tornado lifted several trail- 
ers, driving them 40 yards across a field and 
smashing them into a sland of trees. Florida 
aulhoniies said six of the 1 3 died in or near Pen- 
sacola; al least two of them apparently drowned. 
Louisiana reported four hurricane-related deaths, 
Mississippi two and Geor- 
gia one. Ivan's loll in the 
United States and the 
Caribbean stands at 1 22, 
after the storm's remnants

Residences undergo 
renovations unseen in decades 

Jaclyn Rosenson 


Tulane is undergoing a major pro- 
gram of residence hall construction, 
renovating Monroe Hall this sum- 
mer and continuing development for 
two new residence halls. 

The S6 million Moru-oe Hall pro- 
jcci was originally scheduled to take 
three summers, but once Facilities 
Services and the Capital Projects and 
Real Estate Group realized it could 
be completed in one, they set oul lo 
get il done. The project included 
replacing all the windows and fram- 
ing area, called Ihc curtain wall, 
putting in a new heal ventilation air 
conditioning system, updating the 
electrical system, placing new car- 
pet in the common rooms, refur- 
bishing the bathrooms and renova- 
tions to all private rooms. The pri- 
vate rooms received new mattress- 
es, desks, desk chairs, pedestal dnisscTB 
that can be put inlo the closet, bunk- 
able beds, new carpet and new blinds, 

"There arc still some things that 
arc planned for next summer, a 
replacement of the glass front on the 
first floor and painlingof the build- 
ing thai logistically couldn't be done 

■ Dr. Dan Nadler, asso- 
ciate vice president for Student Affairs, 
who spearheaded this project, said, 

"I am amazed. I have worked here 
1 1 years, and I am amazed," Rob 
Hailey, associate vice president for 
Auxiliary Services and Student Cen- 
ters, said when asked about the Mon- 
roe Hall project. 

The residence halls involved in the 
reconstruction pnjjccts arc Zemurray 
and Doris, which are called Residence 
Hal 1 and Residence Hall 2 respec- 
tively. Zemurray. or RH I , is to be 
completed in July or August 2005. 
The new dorm will be larger than Ihc 
previous one and contain 265 beds 
and a faculty residence. The design 
for RH 1 has been completed, and con- 
struction is currently taking place. 
ThcRHl pnsjecl is on a tight 13-month 
schedule for various reasons. 

"We can't afford to extend the 
timeline becaasc an increasing num- 
ber ofstudcnts want lo live on cam- 
pus." Nadlcr said. 

"(The construction workers) are 
here on Saturdays; ihcy were here 
during move-in," Hailey said, because 
the timeline will benefit Ihc students 
and prevent extra costs. 

The pressed schedule also has lo 

be met because construction on RH2, 
or Doris, cannot begin until dicy arc 
sure RH! will open on time. While 
RH2 is scheduled to break ground in 
January 2005. "It is a real balancing 
act. We have lo be sensitive to the 
fact that things can happen, such as 
Ivan." Nadlcr said. 

Zemurray was taken offline first 
because it had Ihc fewest number of 
beds. Once completed, the additional 
beds will allow for larger renovation 
to take place without displacement 
of many students. 

RH2 is still in the construction 
document phase, but the design has 
been set. It will take the place of Old 
and New Doris. Il will be much like 
RHI, including 265 beds in a suite 
style design and a faculty residence. 
Old Doris went offline during the 
summer. Some students wonder why 
more Ihan one dorm on campus has 
been taken offline while there seems 
lo be a shortage of housing on cam- 
pus. Old Doris has not been used as 
a residence hall in over 12 years, so 
this summer was a convenient lime 
to move all the items thai had been 
stored in Old Dnns. 


University College 
looks to hit jackpot 

Emily Hohenwarter 

University College is offering 
courses in casino resort management 
this semester as it looks to fill the 
void of qualified managers in the 
region's burgeoning casino indus- 
try. This program is Ihe first of its 
kind offered on Ihc Gulf Coast and 
one of the few such programs in Ihe 

Courses arc currently offered al 
University College's satellite cam- 
pus in Biloxi, Miss, at Edgewatcr 
Mall, where students can earn an 
associate's degree, a minor or a post- 
baccalaurcaic ccnificatc in the field. 
Next semester some basic courses 
will be offered at the Uptown cam- 
pus as well. 

Heading up the program for Uni- 
versity College is Alan Silver, a vet- 
eran of the industry. Silver has taught 
and supervised casino management 
in Ihc past and was selected for the 
job from a large applicant pool, 

"I'm excited that our new pro- 
gram and Ihe Mississippi Coasl cam- 
pus in general will benefit from Alan's 
experience and enthusiasm," Richard 
Marksbury, dean ofUnivcrsity Col- 

lege, said, 

Silver said he was "tickled pink" 
to be in charge of die department and 
looks fonvard to a productive term. 

The prominence of the casino 
industry in New Orleans, Biloxi and 
Mississippi as a whole - where it's 
the number one service industry - 
made Ihe creation of such a curricu- 
lum necessary. For those thai com- 
plete il, opportunities for jobs and 
promotions are almost guaranteed. 

Marksbury lauded the new casi- 
no resort management program as 
"providing leadership and training 
for the number one industry in the 
region" and said that Tulane Uni- 
versity would "lake the lead" in 
educating those interested in the 
field. Silver said that such a pro- 
gram would "give people the tools 
needed lo succeed, and to move up 
in the ranks." 

Silver also noted that a school 
offering degrees in Ihc casino indus- 
try, like Tulane 's Universiiy Col- 
lege, will serve the needs of the com- 
munity as a whole by providing res- 
idents with Ihe skills needed to get 
belter jobs, 

"This program is for everyone. 
Those thai arc already in Ihc busi- 

ness can use Uni\'ersity College class- 
es to help advance in the field, and 
those searching for a career can get 
a degree from an excellent school 
and be competitive for the best and 
most needed casino jobs, the middle 
to upper level management posi- 
tions," Silver said. 

An associate's degree in casino 
resort management can be obtained 
in t^vo years, with eight courses taken 
focusing intently on the field. A minor 
requires a simultaneous major and 
six courses, and a posl-baccalaure- 
alc certificate calls for one year or 
eight courses. Courses range from 
Casino Resort Marketing lo Gaming 
and Society lo Cash Management 
and Cage Operations. 

Harrah's casino recently endowed 
Tulanc's University College with 
S250.O00 for use towards scholar- 
ships for minority students inieresl- 
ed in pursuing degrees in casino man- 
agement. Individual scholarships arc 
in amounts of S 1 ,500 and allotted for 
use in the casino resort management 
program only. Currently, applica- 
tions are being accepted for the spring 
semester and can be downloaded on

turned the Superdomc into a no-fly 
zone for San Francisco quarterback 
Ken Dorsey. Dorsey, making his 
firsl career NFL start in place of the 
injured Tim Raitay. did not com- 
plete any of his fise pass attempts 
in the first period and was sacked 

for a seven-yard loss by defensive 
end Will Smiih. 

After New Orleans reeled ofT 10 
straight points to take a 10-3 lead 
into Ihc second quarter, it appeared 
as though the Sainis were in full 
control of the game and would like- 
ly cruise to an easy victory. Yet an 
early injury to running back Deuce 
McAllister and sli[)shod play on 
bolh sides of die ball prevented 
New Orieans from extending its 
advantage to an insurmountable 

"Wc knew coming into the 
game ihat sve'd have some deep 
opportunities, regardless of our run- 
ning game situation." Stallwonh 
said. "Wc knew we could lake 
advantage because they had some 
young guys [in the secondary]." 

While Dorsey never looked any- 
thing like the player who svas a 
Heisman Trophy candidate in col- 
lege, he eventually found enough of 
a rhythm lo bring die 49ers ss-ithin 
20-17 at halftime and 23-20 head- 
ing into die fourth quarter. 

The Saints scitlcd for a field goal 
with 3:35 left in the first half after

comer of the end zone, and ]«■> 
accuracy seemed lo diminish as the

Saints squandered a great chancL' 
for Ihe comeback. Follosving the 
49crs' score, the Sainis began on 
iheir own 18-yard-line and svent 
three and out. 

Ii appeared as though Nesv

game svould result in failure as

idential debate between President 
George W. Bush and Sen. John 
Ken)-, fourTulane facult\' members 
spoke to a crowded Josephine Louise 
Hall ballroom Wednesday nighl, 
concerning key issues relating lo 
the election. 

The four speakers. Assistant Dean 
of the Business School Peter Ric- 
chiuti and Political Science Profes- 
sors John Sutherlin, Chns Fettweis 
and Thomas Langston spoko on a 
wide variety of topics that informed 
and challenged the students about 
the upcoming election and that night's 

Langston, who was "happily sur- 
prised" at the anendance of the e\'eni, 
discussed the manner of presiden- 
tial debates and posed the question 
whether televised debates change 
the way the elections turn out, 

"This has been a sweet campaign; 
it's almost charming," Langston 
said. "'Zingers,' or quick come- 
backs, are not allowed in the debates 
anNinore. The candidates aren't even 

allowed to look 
at each other." 

Langston also 
argued that these 
debates are nec- 
essary, important 
and "a wonder- 
ful example of

.According to 
Ricchiuti. the 
pro-Bush camp 
argues that the

more pro-busi-

"To go to the largest surplus of

debates," Sutherlin said. 

Ricchiuli argued thai Bush's ia.\ 
cut was necessary, but the way it 
was structured will not help the econ- 
omy as much as it needs, 

"Eighty-five percent of the peo- 
ple who benefited fi-om Bush's lax 
cut were the ultra-rich. That is not 
the way you want a tax cut to work 
if you're trying to stimulate an econ- 
omy. If you give a tax cut to the mid- 
dle and lower class, they will spend 
it all, but the ultra rich with save 
some, loose some. The playing field 
needs to be leveled lo help all peo- 
ple and not just the rich," Ricchiu- 
ti said,

In an effort to promote dialogue 
between the left and right on impor- 
tant coniemporary issues. iJie Tulane 
Law School Chapter of the Federal- 
ist Society hosted a debate called 
"Beyond Welfare: Aniipoverty Poli- 
cies for tlie 2 Isl Century." Professor 
Peter B. Edelmen of Georgetown 
University Law Center and Profes- 
sor John S. Baker from the Paul M. 
Herben Law Center at Louisiana 
Slate University each spoke last Fri- 
day at the Tulane Law School. 

Each of the professors received 
20 minutes to present their ideas, and 
then received 1 minutes aflenvards 
for a rebuttal. Following the debate, 
the floor was opened lo questions 
from the audience. 

Baker summarized his main point

Il is just astonishing to me that so 
many people work as hard as they 
possibly can and they just can't pay 
all the bills." 

Of Edelmen 's point of view, Baker 
said, "though [his stance] was pret- 
ty reasonable, 1 think what he said 
about the essentials of economic 
development, welfare and taking 
responsibility and all that, there is a 
lot that I agree with him."

Rogers Chapel 

Catholic leader discusses Judaism and Christianity 

ionlrihiti7!g wriicT 

Speaking on a topic dear to his 
heart, the Cardinal Dr. Chrisloph 
Schonbom, archbishop of Vienna, 
delivered a lecture on Judeo-Chris- 
tian relations at Rogers Chapel last 
week. The lecture, which took place 
Oct 7 al 7:30, was btled "Judaism 
and Christianity; New Perspectives 
in the New Millennium." 

The lecture shifted focus away 
from ihc historical tensions between 
Jews and Christians and instead cen- 
tered on the progress being made 
towards reconciliation. The cardinal 
spent time discussing how changes 
in biblical science have resulted in a 
renewed understanding of the ways 
in which Christianity is roolcd and 
connected lo Judaism, 

He avoided discu.ssing the Holo- 
caust and Ihc Church's involvement 
therein. The Holocaust was refer- 
enced directly only once and was 
rcfcmxJ lo by its Hebrew name, Shoah. 

Rather, Schdnbom talked about 
increasing Christian acceptance of 
ihc validity of Judaism and growing 
.scholastic attention within the Jew- 
ish community to ihc life and impor- 

tance of Jesus. He also highlighted 
positive attitude of Pope John Paul 
II towards Jews, pointing out ihat the 
pope has declared that ihe Jewish

A major issue in both Ihe Icclurc 

and the question and answer session 
was what the Christian altitude towards 
ihe Stale of Israel should be. Schon- 
born's stance was thai Christians 
should support the return of Jews to 
Israel but that supporting a return lo 
the land is not the same thing as sup- 
porting the legal ihcocralic stale. 

Ending the lecture, the cardinal 
asked. "After all that remains, will 
there really be reconciiiaiion between 
Jews und Christians? Will we real- 
ly come to reach common ground?" 

His own answer was that even 
though resolution of the conflict may 
not be of this earth, it is important lo 
work toward it Ihrougli mutual under-

despite language barriers,

ALCS is 
great drama 

Ben Elsenberq 

Cull In I'll I me u^nler 

I know it's football season, but everyone should be 
turning ihcir sports radars towards America's nation- 
al pastime for the ncul week and a half. Be prepared 
to witness the most exciting games of the new millen- 
nium I'm talking about the American League 
Championship Scries between Ihe Boston Red Son 
and New York Yankees. 

There is absolutely no belter rivalry in all of pro- 
fessional sports than the Red Sox versus the Yankees. 
It's nol as if ihc rivalry between these two learns, 
which dates back to 1918, needed any more fuel ihan 
it already had entering ihe sea.son. The Iwo learns 
always seem to meet in the biggest of games, having 
played each other for the American League pennant 
three limes since 1978 heading inio this season. 

The most painful loss for Red Sox fans had to be 
Game 7 of die last year's ALCS between the iwo 
teams (Red Sox fans skip to the next paragraph), Red 
Sox siartcr Pedro Martinez was left in the game too 
long, and before the Red Sox or ihcir faithful knew 
what had hit ihem, a 5-2 eighth inning lead had evap- 
orated into a 5-5 tic. 

Aaron Boone would of course hit ihc game-win- 
ning home run in Ihe II ih inning, which sent a Jubi- 
lant Yankee Icam and their fans to ihc World Scries, 
where they lost to the Florida Marlins. But the loss 
didn't matter to Yankees fans after a dramatic scries 
win over the Sox. For long-suffering Red Sox fans, it 
was another crushing blow in a long line of historical- 
ly painful defeats. 

The ALCS prompled ihc two lop spending teams 
in baseball lo engage in an offsea.son spending spree 
unmatched in professional sports history. For Ihe Red 
Sox, it meant ihe acquisition of closer Keidi Fouike lo 
fill Ihc much-needed void ai the back end of their 
bullpen. It also meant trading for staff ace Curt 
Schilling, who now holds the key to dieir success 
against the hated Yankees in this series. 

It almost meant acquiring Alex Rodriguez, the best 
player in ihc league, bui ihe trade never panned out. 
Instead, the Yankees swooped in shortly before the 
season began and acquired Alex Rodriguez when ihey 
already had a great shortstop in Derek Jeter. So they 
simply moved him to third base to play alongside

The Green Wave's women's soccer squad had its 
15-game home undefeated streak snapped Uiis week- 
end when the Green Wave lost two hard-fought 
games. The team fell to 5-7-2 overall and 3-2-1 in 
conference play. 

The first loss occurred last Friday against the 
defending Conference USA champion University of 
Alabama-Birmingham. The anticipated game 
bciwccn two of C-USA's top teams proved to be a 
physical one. 

UAB struck first, scoring in the 20th minute of the 
game. A number of quick passes by the speedy 
Blazers forwards resulted in an open shot for forward 
Tara Kidwcll. The ball, struck from IS yards away. 
eluded the oulsircichcd hands of Tulane goalkeeper 
Megan Morey. 

Tulane was quick lo respond. Wiihin five minutes, 
die Green Wave had moved die ball down into the 
offensive zone and was able to get several shots at the 
goal. Sophomore Jackie Obcrt was the first Tulane 
player to find success, Oben's volley got past ihe 
UAB keeper and tied the score at one to one. 

Before the end of the half. Kidwell scored her sec- 
ond goal for UAB. Down 2-1 entering ihe second 
half, the Green Wave made things happen. 

Senioi Lindsay Moms charged down the left side 
of the field with the ball and sent a pass across the 
goal mouth. The ball was knocked around, but even- 
tually found its way to sophomore Lauren Peck. Peck 
lapped the ball in lo once again lie the game. 

Unfonunaiely, after an evenly played half, UAB 
was able lo score a third goal lo win the game. 
Countering a Tulane offensive, ihe UAB goalkeepwr 
sent a long punt well past midficld. It bounced and 
glanced off a Tulane player, leading lo a quick 30 
yard shot by UAB's Sally Palmer, which squeaked 
past Morey's reach. 

After the loss, Anderson was pleased widi her 
team's performance and ihcir ability lo fight back. 

"i was proud of the way our team battled back two 
times scoring afier we were scored on; we just could- 
n't find that third goal to do it again and tie the game 
up." she said. "UAB is die most adileiic team in 
Conference USA. They play a very altacking-orien- 
laied style which puts teams under a lot of pressure 
time and time again." 

Tulane returned lo acdon Sunday against South 
Florida. The game's first 45 minutes ended in a score- 
less lie. The ice was not broken undl five minutes into 
the second half when USF midfielder Erica Lewis hit 
a shot lo the upper right comer of the goal, giving the 
Bulls a 1-0 lead. 

In the last 15 minutes of the game. Tulane turned 
up the intensity, desperately looking for a 
goal. For the rest of the game, the ball rarely 
Icfi Ihe Bulls' side of the field. 

"We came oul flat." Anderson said. "It is 
always lough playing on Sunday after an 
intense game on Friday. If wc could have 
played the entire match the way we did in the 
last 15 minutes, wc could have gotten a win." 
The Tulane defenders, especially sopho- 
more Toni Schlapprizzi. pushed up and fre- 
qucndy sent the ball back in front of the USF 

With a few minutes lo go, Morris received 
a ball on the right side of the field. She drib- 
bled it 10 the lop of the USF box, but then had 
it stolen. After Ihat. was unable to get 
another good look at the goal. 

Despite dominaung the possession of the 
ball for the last 15 minutes of the game. 
Tulane was unable lo find the back of the net 
and lost. 1-0, 

The next four games will all be on the 
road. Tonight die Green Wave will be at East 
Carolina, and Sunday the team visits UNC- 
Charlotlc. Both teams arc C-USA opponents. 
Anderson and the rest of the team are opti- 
mistic about the upcoming games. 

"The team has played well in our practice 
sessions and games, over the past ihree 
weeks." she said. "We arc looking forward to

Tough test in Memphis 

Wave need offensive outburst to beat Tige, 

Nick Phillips 

Green Wave football is strug- 

This week, ranked 
Tulane the second worst team in 
Div, lA behind winless Central 
Florida, ihe leam is also winless in 
Conference USA. 

Fresh off a heartbreaking 27-25 
loss lo an East Carolina team that 
had lost its previous nine games, 
Tulane must travel to Memphis to 
face a Tigers team who has 
ouiscored its opponents by a com- 
bined 70 points diis season. 

The focal point of the game for 
Green Wave is centered more on 
who is under center rather than Ihe 
final score, The baldc between 
Richard Irvin and Lester Ricard 
healed up last week as the two 
young quanerbacks alternated pos- 
sessions during die course of the 
game. Bolh of them showed Hash- 
es of polcniial. but both also made 
multiple mistakes. 

Ricard fared die best as he was 
10 of 17 for 175 yards widi two 

touchdowns but an interception, 
Irvjn completed half of his lOpass 
attempts for 48 yards with an 
interception. The battle will con- 
tinue this week against a Memphis 
pass defense which has allowed 
almost 300 yards per game. 

On the bright side, both Tulane 
quarterbacks found Roydell 
Williams, and they found him in a 
big way. Williams reminded 
everyone why he was a preseason 
first team all-conference selection. 
He caught eight passes for 140 
yards and a touchdown, his first 
big game of the season. 

Despite the loss, Williams and 
die offense remained upbeat about 
the rest of season. 

"Yeah, ii's frustrating. It Jusi 
makes us want to try harder," 
Williams said. "We'll start lo pui a 
few drives and we'll score some 
points and we'll win some games." 

The defense will have their 
hands full against a Memphis 
offense which averages over 37 
points a game and nearly 500 
yards of total offense per conicsi. 
While Tulane is second in the con- 


fcrcnce is pass defense, allowing 
only 172 yards a game, die stat is 

The Green Wave has allowed 
Ihc highest pass completion per- 
centage (64.2) in C-USA, The rea- 
son for die puzzling figures is that 
opposing teams spend most of the 
dme running Ihe ball because they

RFID convenient,

Dave Murphy 

The commonwealth of Virgini- 
a's announcement that it will con- 
sider usmg radio frequency identi- 
fication lags in its driver's liceiises 
has sparked a whirlwind of debate 
over personal privacy concerns. 

Proponents of the idea believe 
thai RFID would make il harder for 
people lo use stolen or fake IDs and 
improve speed at security check- 
points. However, privacy advocates 
point out that the use of this tech- 
nology in IDs could allow anyone 
with an RFID reader to obtain per-

Former U.S. leaders 
speak out against Bush 

cotUribiiUiig Tt'riUr 

Amid a sparse, partisan crowd 
Oct. 14. ihree members of Diplomats 
and Military Commanders for Change 
- a group louring the country advo- 
caiing the removal of President Bush 
from office - held a lecture at Dixon 
Anne.\ Reciial Hall sponsored by the 
Payson Center for Iniemational Devel- 
opmeni and Technology Transfer. 

The DMCC members present. 
Col. Mary A. Wright. Donald B. 
Easum and Michael E. Sterner, spoke 
about foreign policy initiatives by 
President Bush's administration. 

Although the Iraq War and terrorism 
were central themes, other topics dis- 
cussed ranged from the rise of neo- 
conservatism in the administration 
lo America's role abroad. The three 
members said they were not con- 
nected to (he Sen. John Kerry's cam- 
paign, although ihey were endors- 
ing him because of their displeasure 
with Bush, 

In the middle of a highly contested 
presidential campaign where myri- 
ad partisan groups are crisscrossing 
the country trying lo sway voters, the 
DMCCdistinguishes itself from other 
ami-Bush organizations with its 
unique background. 

"Some of us are Democrats, some 

of us are Republicans or Indepen- 
dents, many of us voied for George 
W. Bush. Bui we all believe that cur- 
rent administraiion policies have 
failed in the primary responsibilities 
of prcsen'ing national security and 
providing world leadership," the 
DMCC Web site staled, touting a 
bipartisan membership with a cen- 
tralized goal. 

Wright spoke of her decades of 
military and foreign policy experi- 
ence around ihe globe, including 
recent work in Kabul, Afghanistan, 
where she helped reopen ihe U.S. 
Embassy in December 200 1 . fol- 
lowing the fall of the Taliban. She 
said il would be extremely detrimenia] 

lo vote for Bush, because without 
facing the pressure of reelection, he 
would be less likely lo appease crit- 
icsofhispolicy. Consequently, doc- 
trines of neo-conservalism, such as 
preemptive attacks, might increase. 
Wright's military expertise leads 
10 her disapproval of the president, 
as she said the United Stales was noi 
using effective measures to win ihe 
peace in Iraq. Wright also believes, 
along with her colleagues, thai war 
in Iraq was not essential lo fight ter- 
rorism and that vital material and sol- 
diers were diverted away from 
Afghanistan, which she thinks is the

several lerrorisl

istration approved 
a procedure that 
would implant an 
RFID chip inside 
a person's body, 
in order lo facilitate the retrieval of 
vital medical data, further com- 
pounding an already ambiguous, 
highly technological debate, 

RFID is a technology used lo keep 
track of items by receiving a signal 
from the reader and then respond- 
ing by sending the encoded infor- 
mation on the lag to the reader. The 
reader can then pass the information 
on 10 a centralized ser\'er. The tech- 
nology has been used for everything 
from cattle tracking lo bridge tolling, 
and experts expect that RFID tags 
will replace the UPC bar codes sys- 
tem by 2005. This allows Ihe man- 
ufacturer to keep track of the prod- 
uct from production lo delivery to 
the consumer, Il also allows certain 
conveniences lo the consumer. For 
example, you could be able lo sim- 
ply walk out the door of a shopping 
center with your purchases while an 

tain surveil- 
lance. For 
example, the 
FBI would be 
able lo collect 
the names and 
addresses of 
every person 
attending a 
protest, simply 
by walking 
through the 
crowd or flying 
over in a heli- 
copter. Agents 
could easily 
obtain an arse- 
nal of inlbrma- 
lion about 
everything from 
your daily 
schedule lo pur- 

chases made at 

the supermar- 
ket. RFID could easily be coupled 
with Global Positioning System tech- 
nology, allowing the govemment lo 
pinpoint the location of a person and 
view them via satellite. 

Now that the FDA has approved 
the use of an RFID implant called 
VeriChip further concerns ha\'e been 
brought fonvard. Proponents of the 
technology argue that the chip will 
allow medical information lo be 
quickly and easily retrieved and 
reduce the chance of misidcntifica- 

When a patient comes to the hos- 
pital or medical center, an RFID read- 
er can retrieve the code on the chip 
and use il lo pull up (he records from 
a secure database. Some doctors 
believe VeriChip could be used in 
conjunction with GPS tracking in

Delay of Tulane College 
election leads to confusion 

Unclear e-mails cause some voters to miss deadline

ton Irilm ling writer 

Tulane College Senate results 
were announced Sept. 29, stirring 
controversy among students and 
raising questions about the validi- 
ty of the elections. Two postpone- 
ments, alleged misinformation dis- 
tributed by the college's adminis- 
trative front desk and one ambigu- 
ous e-mail complicated the normal 
electoral procedure, resulting in 
confusion among candidates and 

The elections, which deiermined 
freshman class president, vice-pres- 
ident, senators, and Undergraduate 
Student Govemment rep resenla lives 
were originally scheduled for Sept, 
16-17, with SepL 20 reserved for run- 
offs. The elections were postponed 
on Sept, 14 when the school evacu- 
ated for Hurricane Ivan. Students 
were notified via an e-mail thai slat- 
ed elections were rescheduled to SepL 
23-24, with Sepl. 27 nserved for run- 

A second posiponemeni followed 
when a group of candidates, citing 

bad mfotmation given to them at the 
front desk of Cudd Hall, missed the 
deadlinefortumingin their intent Id 
run forms. Tulane College Senate 
President Patrick Babin and Tulane 
Awards and Elections Chairman Kris 
Day decided to delay elections once 
again to ensure the fairness of the 
campaign. They were moved to SepL 
27 and 28, wiih Sept. 29 reserved for 

Complications arose again. The 
e-mail announcing the change stat- 
ed only that elections would be held 
Sept. 27-29. It did not explicitly slate 
that the third day was reserved for 
run-offs. Day said he assumed that 
the students understood that the gen- 
eral elections only consisted of two 
days of voting followed by a day for 
the run-offs as demonstrated in the 
two prior sets of dates. 

"They didn't make that clear," 
Suhas Subramanyam, freshman class 
vice presidential candidate who was 
defeated, said. 

"A bunch of our friends procras- 
tinate," he said, explaining that it 
caused them to put off voting until 
what Ihey thought was the day. 

"The College docsn "1 have very 
good PR," presidential candidate Ted 
Klein who was defeated said. "I had 
four Iricnds go Wednesday lo vote 
and they were turned away." 

Day disagreed. 

"It is unlikely that the vice pres- 
idential and presidential r\mners-up 
would have won the election," he 
said, citing a relatively high margin 
between the candidates of 40-50 

"It's very clear you have around 
the same number of voters each day 
of elections," he said. He also point- 
ed out that e-mail correspondence 
between him and the candidates was 
high, showing approximately 60 
mails relaiing to ihc elections wiih- 
in 20 days. 

"It all comes down to the inter- 
pretation of the e-mail," Klein said. 

Tulane College Senate maintains 
tliat there is no question of the results' 
finality. They encourage Ihe candi' 
dates who did nol win to run in the 
spring elections and remind ihe can- 
didates thai they always accept i 
cilmen lo serve as non-voting mem- 
berson the Senate.

Mewelde Moore found himself in a familiar position 
last weekend. 

Sitting in (he Supcrdome locker room, he was once

stellar performance and celebrating a victory. 

Only this was the visitor's locker room Sunday, nol 
Salurday, and this time Moore was decked in purple and 
gold instead of green and while. 

After graduating from Tulane lasi spring. Moore took 
his quick jukes and reliable pass-catching ability with 
him 10 the Minnesota Vikings. 

"He's doing the same thing now that he did when he 

was here at Tulane," Tulane Head Football Coach Chris 

Scelfo said. "He produces. He's done that here for four 

vcars Vou ihink it's a one-yard gain, and you look up 

and it's sccond-

rushing yards and 
90 receiving yards 
in his firsi NFL 
slarl at Rcliani 
St.idium when the 
Vikings went to 
Hoiiiiion and won

things and gel a 

little sharper. 

but overall I'm 

still playing the 

same game." Moore said. "I jusi put my faith in 

God that I'll jusi be able to go out and play the 

game I know how to play." 

On the familiarlurf of theSuperdome Sunday. Moore 
was even more outstanding. He amassed a career-high 
109 rushing yards on only 15 carries for an average of 
7.3 yards per cany. 

Additionally he hauled in a game-high seven catches 
for 78 yards. 

"I believe that I'm a running back and wide receiver." 
Moore said. "I can transition from one to the other as 
soon as Ihe play is called." 

In typical Moore fashion, he downplayed both the 
pre-game and post-ganic exciiemeni. 

"[Before the game) I had to make sure 1 was focused 
and nol building the emotion up," Moore said. "I'm 
going to enjoy tonight, but it's time lo get back lo work

As he is accuslomed to. Moore is once again a key cog 
in a prolific offense. Over the last three years he was the

27.1 and 28.7 points per game, respectively. Now in 
Minnesota, which is second in the NFL wiUi 30.0 points

on the bench were equally 
involved," Becker said. "They 
showed a lot of suppon and acted as 
a complete team." 

Fowler also had an impressive 
game Oct. 16. nol only because of 
her .696 clip derived from one error 
in 23 swings, but also because she 
became (he second player to join 
Tulane's record books with 1,000 
kills and 500 blocks. Her three 
blocks of the match boosted her 
record to 1,259 kills and 502 blocks 
in her four years at Tulane. 

"Deva certainly deser\'es 
records. She's (hat player the one 
opponents try to stop. I'm really 
happy for her and the tribute (o her 
hard work and talent." Becker said. 
"It will make a lasting impression 
on Tulane volleyball with the 
record books lo show it."

Tulane receives grant 
for C2incer research 

ivniribuiing wriler 

The Tulane University Health 
Sciences Center has recently been 
cndow'ed with a S 1 0.7 million grant 
lo further advance their research 
in cancer genetics over the next 
five years. 

The grant, from the National 
Inslitulesof Health, will finance 
the development of the Cancer 
Genetics Program as part of the 
Louisiana Cancer Research Con- 

The Consortium is a joint effort 
between the Tulane Cancer Cen- 
ter and the Louisiana Stale Uni- 
versity Health Sciences Cancer 
Center to optimize research for 
cancer therapies and to find treat- 
ment and preventive measures for 
the Louisiana region. 

Dr. PrcscoH Deininger, the direc- 

lor of basic research at the Tulane 
Cancer Center, believes that work- 
ing togelherwith LSU has created 
a "much bener critical mass of inves- 
tigators to inieraa together in research 
projects." He claims thai the Con- 
sortium has "paid off with our his- 
tory of working together, our fund- 
ing and the building we are build- 
ing together to move all of our 
research faculty in three years." 

The proposal for the gram is 
aimed at developing the research 
careers of junior faculty members 
in the who have not yet acquired 
large grams of their own. Three 
junior faculty from Tulane are being 
tunded: Chuck Hemenway, an asso- 
ciate professor of pediatrics, Aslrid 
Engel, research associate profes- 
sor of epidemiology and Aline Scan- 
durro. research assistant professor 
of miciobiology-immunology. There 
are also two junior faculty from 

LSU being ftinded; Andrew Hol- 
lenbach and Bo Xu. 

Each of the researchers will be 
awarded a budget of the grant as 
outlined in the proposal. The award 
will be invested in the salaries of 
the researchers, experiment-spe- 
cific supplies, publication materi- 
als, and other expenses, such as 
costs of attendance al scientific 
meetings for research presentation. 

The grant also includes a provi- 
sion for two senior faculty mentors 
to aid and advise each junior fac- 
ulty member. This also includes 
an external advisory board com- 
prised of prominent scientists from 
Harvard University, Duke Univer- 
sity, University of Michigan and 
the University of San Diego, who 
will be available annually to review 
and guide the researchers,

Two large-scale sculptures now

The gallery's exhibit was 
put together over the last five 
years as a tribute to Kohlmey- 
er, who is considered to be 
one of the most prominent 
Louisiana artists of the last 
century. Kohlmeyer gradu- 
ated from Newcomb is 1 933 
with adegree in English lit- 
erature. She later returned 
toacquireamaster'sin fine 
arts in 1 956, and her fol- 
lowing 40-year career as an 
artist was spent in New "" 
Orleans, until her death in 
1997, Kohlmeyer was heralded 
as a master of abstract expres- 

ing the best pieces that explained 
Ida Kohlmeyer's life's work," 
said Main. "As a curator, you have 
lo think what is going to talk to 
something else, to complement 
it," she said.

"The process was about find-

nrii'i co-(diiOT 

Hannali Cigliotti, a Newcomb sopho- 
more from Lyndhurst, Ohio known for 
her abi!it>' to befriend everyone she met 
and her love of learning, died Oct. 14 
after she was found unresponsive in her 
Mayer Residence room. She was 19. 

The cause of death is pending the 
results of a toxicology report. Vice Pres- 
ident for Student Affairs Cyndiia Cher- 
rey said, 

Cigliotti told friends said she had 
seizures this past summer and her friends 
wonder if it might have had something 
to do with her death. 

A UNICCO worker found Gigiiotli 
lying on the floor on the moming of Oct. 
14. and called police at 10: 1 8 a.m.. New 
Orleans Police Department spokesman 
Garry Plot said. He said Cigliotti was 
rushed to Memorial Medical Center. 
where she died around noon. 

At a memorial Monday in a packed 
Myia Clare Rogers Chapel, friends and 
others viewed a PowerPoint presenta- 
tion of pictures showing Gigiiotli and 
her friends. The friends -viewed the pic- 
tures with a mi.xturc of tears and laugh- 

"She let me live through her experi- 
ence; she never let a day go by that she 
didn't thoroughly enjoy," friend Heather 
Jackson said at the service, 

Jackson read from Psalm 23 and Rev- 
elations 7: 1 7 at the service. Several 
friends shared memories of Cigliotti, 
along with Newcomb College Dean 
Cynthia Lowenlhai and Cheney, 

In e-mail to students, President Scott 
Cowcn said he had met with the family week to share stories about Cigliot- 

"1 am sure the memories and love 
Hannah Icfi behind will comfort her par- 
ents, her brother and all who knew her 
as they cope with her tragic loss by cel- 
ebrating her life," he said. 

Director of Student Life Dan Nadler 
said he is trying to cope with the loss 
himself while making sure grieving stu- 
dents receive the attention they need. 

"It hits me pretty hard; it's a difficult 
situation to confronL" he said, "We lake 
it very personally " 

"[But] we want to make sure that 
everyone is okay. That's what Hannah 
would have wanted," he said. 

Gigliotti befriended everyone she 
met, father Tom Giglioni recalled, And 
she was loyal to those friends, mother 
Sharon Cigliotti said, often baking them 
cakes or decorating their lockers in high 
school just to show she cared. 

"One of the mothers from down the 
street from us said, 'It's nice to be impor- 
tant in life but it's more important to be 
nice. ' Hannah would have been both," 
Sharon Cigliotti said. 

CigUotli's father said she had a diverse 
anay of friends: black, Muslim and Jew- 

"To her what was most important 
was what was inside," Tom Gigliotti 
said, "That is what I want to celebrate." 

Coming to Tulane on a Founders' 
Scholarship, Cigliotti showed intellec- 
tual promise as a young child, her par- 
ents said. 

"My wife would take Hannah to the 
library, she would read tons of books , . . 
and \\siA [to read] more. She loved learn- 
ing," Tom Gigliotti said. 

She excelled at Tulane, often acing 
tests after skimming her textbook, Jack- 
son said. 

She became interested in the Uni- 
versity after she went to the senior prom 
as a freshman with a dale headed here, 
her mom said. She had found the school 
"very welcoming and open," her moth- 
er said. 

Friends and family said she had 
planned on double majoring in political 
science and Latin American Studies, a 
subject her father said was only fitting. 

"Her first word was 'agua' - grant- 
ed our babysitter was from Mexico, but 
you always think their first word will be 
momma or dada, but not Hannah, her 
first word was 'agua,'" he said. "It was 
no surprise to us when she started study- 
ing Latin American studies ... her fevoritc 
food was refried beans and her nick- 
name was 'bcanv,'" 

Her parents said she loved to travel, 
especially to Latin America. She went 
to Honduras as a sophomore in high 
school, and spent last summer in Costa 
Rica on a study abroad with other Tulane 

hi Honduras, ' 'she made a big impres- 
sion on her volunteer group. She loved 
her time down there and the people. The 
kids down there keep asking about her, 
even though it was four years ago," 
Sharon Gigiiotli said. 

Her parents said she had hoped to 
work for the United Nations or be an 
attorney for migrant workers. 

Despite her promise, Cigliotti had 
her share of problems, like any teenag- 
er, according to her father. 

The weekend before she died, she 
and three friends took a road trip to Vir- 
ginia Beach, Va, During one conversa- 
tion on the 20-hour trip, Gigliotti said 
she was tried of being called "Drunk 
Hannah," friend Heather Jackson recalled. 

"I hate the fact people know me that 
way," Jackson remembered her saying, 
"I want to stay clean and get involved 
(in extracurricular activities.]" 

Friends gave Cigliotti the nickname 
because she parried almost every night. 

Friends Jackson and engineering 
sophomore Lex Steers said Gigliotti told 
them she had problems and had gone to 
rehab before entering Tulane, 

Her friends were relieved when she 
decided to make a new attempt lo straight- 
en out a couple months ago. 

"We were excited because she had 
so much to offer and we didn't want her 
to Ihrow it awyy. She was naturally smart 
and had goals, like she wanted to go to 
law school," Jackson said. 

Gigliolti's family asks that contri- 
butions be made in her memoiy lo "Hands 
of Honduras," 3700 Big Ben Road, Vir- 
ginia Beach, VA 23452 or Tulane Uni-

Bush, Kerry try to convince undecided 
voters in battleground states 

James Kuhnhenn and 
William Douglas 

Knighl Riddtr Nra^pdpcn 

President Bush and Sen. John 
Kerry competed in sharply divided 
Wisconsin and three other battle- 
ground slaKM for votes Tuesday with 
messages of reassurance to unde- 
cided voters who harbor doubts about 
the president on the ccorximy or aboui 
Kerry on security issues. 

Bush aimed lo weaken Kerry's 
advantage on domestic policy issues 
by portraying Kerry as big spender 
who would raise taxes to pay for his 
ambitious domestic agenda. 

"My opponent believes the econ- 
omy grows by growing the size of 
the federal govcmmenl," Bush said 
at a moming rally in Onalaska. Wis, 
"I believe ihc economy grows by 
growing the size of the coffers of 
small businesses," 

Kerry, speaking in Crccn Bay, 

tried to dent voters' perception thai 
Bush would be stronger fighting ler- 
R)rism and securing ihe nation against 
tenor attacks. He listed a series of 
White House decisions that he said 
put troops or the country in peril, 
capping each with the refrain: "When 
a commander in chief makes the 
wrong decision. America's securi- 
ty pays the price." 

Polls consistently show ihat Bush 
leads Kerry on qualities that voters 
associate wiih national security and 
fighting terrorism. Kerry, on the 
other hand, is solidly ahead of Bush 
on economic issues such as jobs 
and health care. 

By j^ipcaling beyond their respet- 
livc bases of support, the two can- 
didates were following polling sig- 
nals that show they've rallied parti- 
san voleni and now need to the 
remaining six days of ihe campaign 
lo make Ihc sale with undecided 
swing voters. 

To illustrate the pcini, a new poll

by Ihe University of Pennsylvania's 
National Annenberg Election Sur- 
vey shows that among voters who 
slill consider themselves persuad- 
able, 50 percent view Bush as a 
stronger leader than Kerry, where- 
as only 32 percent sec Kerry as 
stronger. Al Ihe same time, 82 per- 
cent ofthose voters consider the

for Iowa, another state he narrowly 
lost. Keny headed to llic Southwest 
to rallies in Las Vegas and Albu- 
querque, N.M. Keny planned to return 
to Iowa early Wednesday moming. 

In his economy- foe used speech, 
Bush questioned whether Kerry 
would reform the nation's legal sys- 
tem and reduce tlic number of expen- 
sive law,suits. Bush claimed that friv-

Lowered expectations 
for Hornets in 2004-05 

New Orleans enters Western Conference with arduous 
tasli of continuing five-year postseason streali 

After two consecutive under- 
achieving, disappoindng seasons. 
ihe Homcts come into their ihird 
year in New Orleans widi relative- 
ly low expectations. 

The team was expected to com- 
pete for a spot in the NBA Finals 
in each of the last two seasons, but 
suffered first-round exits each lime 
and subsequently fired ils coach at 
ihe close of each season. 

This year brings back most of 
the same players from the 
previous two campaigns and 
u new first-rate head coach 
in Byron Scott. 
However, the team 

grouped with Houston. San 
Antonio, Dallas and Memphis. 

All of those clubs made die 
playoffs last year and die Hornets 
have a combined record of 4-12 
against those teams in the past two 
seasons (13-27 over the last five 
years). The Hornets will play 
roughly one-fifth of Uieir schedule 
against those teams. 

Although the Hornets arc one 

of five teams to return two all-stars 

to their starting lineup this year 

(Baron Davis and Jamaal 

Magloire) two of the odiers are 

new division rival Houston

Even more unfor- 
tunate for New

pens to be in the 
league's most diffi- 
cult division, the 

Instead of the 
comfortable Eastern 
Conference, where two 
sub-. 500 teams made 
the playoffs last season, 


This year's schedule also calls 
for New Orleans to venture on four 
significant Western Conference 
road trips. The Hornets have not 
had a winning Western 
Conference road trip longer than 
three games since going 3-2 in 
December of 200 1. 

The Hornets' defensive defi- 
ciencies were not exposed much in 
the Eastern Conference last year as 
they finished sixth in scoring 
defense. However. 10 Western 
Conference teams beat their scor- 
ing average against New Oricans 
last year including Dallas (-i-I^.S 
points per game). Denver 
(+6,3), die Clippers (+6.2)

ipo'ii aiilor 


That's the only way to describe 
Tulane's thrilling victory over 
UAB last Saturday, 

Unthinkable that kicker Nick 
Beucher. after hitting only one 
field goal all year, nailed a 53-yard 
field goal at the close of die first 
half to keep the Green Wave with- 
in reach. 

Unthinkable that quarterback 
Lester Ricard, who just a week 
before was alternating possessions 
with his backup, completed 36-of- 
49 passes (73.5 percent) for 417 
yards, including a school record 
six touchdown passes. 

Undiinkable diat nine different 
Tulane players would catch a pass, 
including 1 1 receptions for 
Roydell Williams (138 yards) and 
seven for Chris Bush (97 yards). 

Undiinkable diat a defense that 
would eventually allow 55 points 
and 649 yards of total offense 
came up with a goal line stand late 
in the game to force a field goal to 
keep Tulane within reach. 

Unthinkable that the Green 
Wave, previously winless both in 
Conference USA and against 
Division I-A opponents, knocked 
off UAB. ranked 24th in the BCS 
and sitting atop the conference. 

Unthinkable that a team nobody 
picked to accomplish anything this 
season now has u legitimate shot at 
a bowl game. 

That's right, Tulane. Bowl 
game. Possible. 

Why believe it? Because die 
players do. The reason a bowl 
game (in all likelihood the New 
Orieans Bowl) is still in die cards 
for the Green Wave is because Ihe 
players have not quit on the sea-

After a thrilling homecoming 
win over UAB, the Green Wave 
will look to win its second straight 
game tomorrow (4 p.m., ESPN 
Plus) in Houston against the 

Houston (1-6 overall. 1-4 in 
Conference USA) is currently 
sharing last place in C-USA with 
Tulane, East Carolina and USF 
and a four-game losing streak. 
The Cougars defense has allowed 
34 points or more in each of those 
four losses, which could spell trou- 

ble against an increasingly potent 
Green Wave offense. 

Quarterback Lester Ricard, who 
threw for six touchdowns against 
UAB, will lead Ihe sixlh-mnked 
offense in C-USA against a pass- 
happy Cougars team which relies 
heavily on die dirowing ami of 
sophomore quarterback Kevin 

Kolb is second in the confer- 
ence in passing yards behind 
Barrel Hackney of UAB. who 
torched the Green Wave defense 
last Saturday for -148 passing 
yards. A reeling Green Wave sec- 
ondarv' will have .i touch task in 

shutting down junior wide receiver 
Vincent Marshall, currently 
nmked second in C-USA in receiv- 
ing yards with 740. 

The Cougars' running game 
(ninth in C-US.'X) features 
Anihony Evans and Ryan Gilbert. 
Evans and Gilbert each have two 
touchdowns on the season. Evans, 
who returned from injury last 
weekend against TCU, will proba- 
bly get die bulk of die carries. 
Evans had 59 rvshing yards last 
weekend while Gilbert had just 
five rtjshing yards.

Following Q disappointing 
10-18 finish last season, the 
Green Wave is armed with youth 
and athleticism to return lo the 
competitive ranks of Conference 

This year's team features ri\'c 
tnie freshmen, the most in Head 
Coach Lisa Stockton's 11-year 
tenure with the Green Wave. 
This includes guards Khadrcreil 
Ferguson and Nikki Luckhurst, 
while Jermifer Sands will likely 
see lime at the small forward 
posiuon and Alendra Brown and 
Dominique Philpots will play the 
low postpositions, 

TTiat youth, combined with 
veterans such as senior guards 
Kinya Lennix and Tymeka 
Moore, should make the Green 
Wave one of the most athletic 
teams in the C-USA. Stockton 
has not named a starting lineup 
yet. but Moore knows whai lo 
expect out of the starting five. 

"At all five spots we're going 
to have great athletes," Moore 
said. "The transition game will be 
our bread and butter this year," 

As a junior last season, Moore 
was second on the team behind

With the official practice 
season underway. Head Coach 
Shawn Finney is preparing his 
team for a season loaded with 

Last year's squad was young 
and inexperienced. Wayne 
Tinsley was the only senior on 
the floor after current redshirt 
senior Ivan Pjcvcevic suffered a 
season-ending knee injury in 
the season opener. The team 
struggled for much of the sea- 
son, especially in conference 

Tulane lost its first seven 
conference games, but dis- 
played perseverance by riding a 
three-game win streak and a 

stunning upset against UAB 
(who later shocked Kenmcky in 
the NCAA Tournament) to 
qualify as the 12th seed in the 
C-USA tourney. 

Their perseverance showed a 
tremendous amount of bean, 
and combined with the experi- 
ence of the returning players, 
Finney is optimistic his team 
can compete at a higher level 
this season. 

One of these reluming play- 
ers is Pjcvcevic. The 7-foot 
center will be an integral part to 
this year's squad if he can 
remain healthy. Finney is confi- 
dent he will be healthy and 
ready to play despite not prac- 
ticing at 100 percent yei. 

"He's looking good," 
Finney said. "A liitlc gimpy at 

times, but he can still shoot the 
ball and is a very inielhgent 
player. The injury limited his 
mobility, but it did not affect 
his shooting skills or his knowl- 
edge of the game." 

Pjevcevie's return brings 
added leadership alongside 
senior guards Ben Benfield 
and Marcus Kinzer. 

Kinzer had a breakout 
season last year, finishing 
second in scoring behind for- 
ward Quincy Davis, tying for 
first in assists with guard 
Vincent Camper and leading 
the team in steals, three-point 
percentage and free-throw per- 
centage. He often acted as a

sports tdilor 

The 2004-05 campaign will 
mark Head Coach Lisa 
Stockton's Uih season with the 
Green Wave, In the process of 
being largely responsible for 
resurrecting what was once a 
miserable women's basketball 
program. Stockton led Tulane 
to nine consecutive NCAA 
tournament benhs. 

Unfortunately for the Green 
Wave, however, the run ended 
with last year's disappointing 
10-18 finish. Not only did this 
end an impressive streak, but it 

also was Stockton's first losing 
season as a coach. Despite hav- 
ing one of Conference USA's 
youngest teams, Stockton is 
confident that this year's squad 
will show dramatic improve- 
ment over last season. 

"Hullabaloo": One high- 
light of your stay at Wake 
Forest was making the Atlantic 
Coast Conference Academic 
Honor Roll twice. How do you 
stress academics to players? 

Stockton: I think [making 
the ACC Academic Honor 
Roll] very much influenced my 
coaching career. I certainly 

think it has to be a priority for a 
coaching staff, and it has been 
for us. The message is not 
mixed from my staff: 
Academics is what's going to 
carr\' them. They need to leave 
here with a degree. I think [aca- 
demics] is much more of a pri- 
ority in women's basketball 
than in men's basketball

they know that getting a degree 
is really important.

the top assistant coaching job ai 
Georgia Tech in 1990. was that 
your big break? 

LS: One of my big breaks 
was becoming a head coach 
right out of graduate school. 
Even though it was a small 
school at Greensboro College, 
it really put me out there to find 
out my strengths and weakness- 
es and throw me into the fire at 
a young age, 1 thought that was 
really important. My break in 
big college athletics was cer- 
tainly Georgia Tech. Getting 
the opportunitj' to go there and 
be the recruiting coordinator at 
a relatively young age was an 

opportunity for me to learn 
national rccrtjiting, which cer-

knew Tulanc's tradition of what Perry Clark had 
done in the early lo middle '90s and that enticed 
me. Conference USA being a great league and

Local jazz legend performs at Tulane 

Ellis Marsalis }t. performs Nov. 4 al Dixon Hall as part of the Tulane Lagr)iappe program

Jazz pianist Eilis Marsalis Jr. performed in an 
acoustic quartet ai Brant Van Dixon Hall Nov. 4 
a'i a pan ofTulane University's "Lagniappe Thuis- 
days," a section of the Tulane Lagniappe Program 
iliat showcases select New Orleans artists. 

The Ellis Marsalis Quartet consisted of Jeff 
Clapp. drums; Derek Dougcl, clarinet and sax- 
ophone; Bill Huntington, acoustic bass; and 
Marsalis, piano. The group performed some of 
Marsalis' original songs such as "Twelve's It" 
from the album of die same title, in addition to 
classic standards such as the theme song from 
the 1 949 film "Samson and Delilah" and Char- 
lie Parker's "Bloomdido."' 

The audience cheered when Marsalis intro- 
duced the classic "New Orleans Groove" and 
"Sweet Georgia Brown," a song which many 
Tulane students are sure to hear in the streets 
during Mardi Gras. 

At the end of the performance, Marsalis host- 
ed a question and answer session in which he 
explained how he learned to improvise. 

"Back then, I listened to recordings because 
you couldn't buy the music [sheets] anyway. 
So. you just copy what you hear," Marsalis said. 

He said his main influences are Oscar Peter- 
son, Miles Davis and Duke Ellington, 

Marsalis slated that the largest lesson he has 
learned from performing as a musician is "coop- 

"You must be willing to submerge your ego. 
The whole is more important thai tlie sum of the 
pans," Marsalis said, In addition, he claimed 
that the most essential piece of advice he could 
give to a student is "listen and practice." 

The quartet even fulfilled the request of one 
student's wish to hear ihe song "My Funny

the "premier modem jazz pianist of New Oleans." 
is not only a well-known musician both nation-

ily of musicians. Four of his six sons, Wynlon, 
Branford. Delfeayo and Jason, have all reached 
international fame as jazz musicians, estab- 
lishing the Marsalis family's reputation as the 
"first family of jazz." 

Marsalis, who will turn 70 Sunday, is a New 
Orleans native. At age 1 1, he began his musi- 
cal career studying the clarinet at the Xavier 
University Junior School of Music, After grad- 
uating high school, Marsalis went on to obtain 
a Bachelor of Arts in Music Education from Dil- 
lard University. 

One year later, he joined the United Slates 
Marine Corps and was stationed in California. 
There he began perfecting his skills as a pianist 
by playing on the television show "Dress Blues" 
and the radio program "Leatherneck Songbook."

Filmmaker Kennedy speaks 



Rory Kennedy, an accomplished filmmaker, 
social activist and human rights advocate and 
youngest daughter of former Sen. Robert Kennedy, 
addressed a group of students and faculty in the 
Freeman Auditorium Monday, She spoke about 
her work promoting social awareness through 
documentaries that focus on issues ranging from 
AIDS to drug addiction to domestic 
abuse and poverty in America, 

She presented the audience widi clips 
from her films that emphasized ques- 
tions of women's rights and social jus- 

"In almost all of my films women's 
issues have played a role," Kennedy 
said, "Women experience these issues 
from a different perspective . , , A major 
theme of my work is the struggle for 
women to keep their families together," 

A clip from Kennedy's film"Women 
of Substance," focused on a mother 
addicted to drugs and faced with the pos- 
sibility of loosing her children. The film 
criticized policies that imprison preg- 
nant addicts or separate addicts from 
their children. The film argued that these 
practices force women lo choose behveen 
treatment and their children, often result- 
ing in women raising children while pri- 
vately batiling their addictions. Instead, 
it promoted social programs that allow 
women with children to undergo coun- 
seling while offering support to help 
them keep their families intact. 

Similarly, the film "Different Moms" 
promolcd rights for mothers with men- 
tal retardation. The film portrayed Ihem 
as loving, nurturing and capable moth- 
ers, though they oflcn require outside Rory Ki 
support lo raise their children. 

"One of the things these films can do is open 
our minds a little bit and help us look al things in 
different ways," Kennedy said to the audience, 

"American Hollow," her first feature film, was 
shown al the 1999 Sundance Film Festival and 
followed the story of a rural family living in pover- 
ty-stricken Appalachia, It demonstrated the ten- 
sion between the modem world and the simple 
existence of families living in rural Kentucky, 

Kennedy approached the subject of poverty' in 

cdy speaks to studi 
• rights through film. 

Amenca again in "A Boy's Life," a film thai shed 
light on welfare issues and mental abuse. She and 
her crew spent two years filming a boy who had 
been abandoned by his mother and was alleged- 
ly violent and suicidal. Again, she demonstrated 
the need for programs that would help children 
and their families become functional members of 

Kennedy said a major theme of her work is 
looking at people who need assistance from their 
family, community or government, and pro- 
moting social services to help them get that 

In one such instance, a 1 5-minute version 
of her film "Pandemic: Facing AIDS" was 
shown in the U.S. Congress to persuade leg- 
islators to dedicate money for AIDS relief 
m Africa. "Pandemic" personified the glob- 
al AIDS crisis by closely following one AIDS 
victim from five different countries across 
the world. 

Despite the films' focus on controversial 
and often unsettling social issues, Kennedy 
c\pressed hope that her work will promote 
;i more humane world by encouraging peo- 
ple lo help others. 

"I think my films are about difficult sub- 
ject matter, but they are not about defeat," 
she said. "Each of them is a pnafile of courage." 
The event was sponsored by Newcomb 
College Senate's Women's Forum, a group 
dedicated to bringing guest speakers to cam- 
pus who promote awareness of women's 
issues. The event was pari of Celebrate New- 
comb Week, a week designated to highlight 
Newcomb Student Programs and women's 
issues on campus, 

Kennedy holds a degree frtim Bro\Mi Uni- 
versity in women's studies and co-owns a film 
production company, Moxie Firecracker Films, 
Her films have been aired on Lifetime Tele- 
vision, HBO, A&E, Court TV, The Oxygen 
Network and The Learning Channel, 

Campus political groups reflect on elections 

nam co-editor 

A few signs and stickers an; Ihe only 
remnants on campus of a heated pres- 
idential campaign. Now, especially for 
the more politically inclined, there has 
been some lime lo relax and reflect 
upon the cffon that's aheady been made 
and what remains to be done, 

Evan Charles Wolf and Thomas 
"Rocky" Thompson arc two people 
on campus who arc especially thought- 
ful during this post-election lull. As 
prcsidcntiofTulane's College Democ- 
rats and College Republicans, respec- 
tively, ihcy have spent much of their 
time focu.sing on Ihc elcclions and 
leading their organizations lo pro- 
mole political dialogue on campus. 

Both organizations began Ihe year 
by recruiting new mcmbeis and help- 
ing students register to vole. They 
conlinucd ihcir commitments by cam- 
paigning for ihcir candidates and now 
get lo enjoy ihc victories experienced 
for both side. 

"This has been by far the best year 
the Tulane College Democrats have 
ever had, Wc are belter organized 
and more effective than anytime in 
Ihe past , , , Ihe Tulane College Democ- 
rats have achieved all of the club's 
goals," new College Democrats Pres- 
ident Christopher Siowe-Scrgc said. 

Wolf, former president of Col- 
lege Democrats recently abdicated 
Ihe position, turning it over to for- 
mer Vice Prcsidcnl Slowe-Scrge, 
Wolf will be devoting his time to Ihe 
Charlie Melancon for U.S. Congress 

Wolf said the College Democrats 
feel a grcal marker of Ihcir success 
has been the increase in voter turnout, 
up 400 percent since 1996 in the 
Tulane precincl, 

"One of our main reasons for being 
is to suppon Democratic candidates 
and Democratic policies. The rawest 
measure ofthat is how many voles 
wc got and what the improvement 
was from berorc. so in Ihal sense, wc 
were very successful," Wolf said. 

Thompson said one of the main 
goals for the College Republicans 
was to campaign to gel Sen. David 
Vitter elected. 

"Many of our members are not 
from Louisiana and so we needed lo 
get our members focused on Vitter, 
but to do that wc had to put the cam- 
paign on a nationwide scope. We had 
lo sell our people on Vitter by using 
the national campaign," Thompson 
said. "Some didn't like it, but al the 
Vitter victory parly , . . there was a 
lot of delight, hugging, kissing, high 
fives and joy throughout the group." 

On the other side of ihe victory 
rally, the College Democrats "were 
disheartened and feeling powerless." 
Stowc-Serge said, "That feeling, 
however, has quickly passed and our 
membership is now ready to contin- 
ue fighting for just causes," he said. 

"In the immediate aftermath, wc 
were very depressed and shocked 
and disappointed. We really though! 
wc were going lo win. There are some 
who arc still convinced that wc did 

and (hat il was stolen, and there arc 
others that are believing that they 
want to move to another country; that 
there's no hope for America," Wolf 
said. "For Ihe most pan, I think peo- 
ple are in need of a break at the 
moment and are resting up, but I don't 
think I'd soy that anyone is demor- 
alized or defeated at all. Not much 
changed since 2000; blue states stayed 
blue, red slates stayed red. The mar- 
gin was slightly wider ... but there's 
no mandate on either side," 

Bolh groups receive advice and 
support from the national College 
Democrat and College Republican 

Thompson said the College Repub- 
licans were asked by the state party, 
which is in direct contact with the 
Louisiana Federation of College 
Republicans, lo focus their effort on 
campaigning for Vitlcr, Thompson 
said he believes ihe work ofthe Col- 
lege Republicans in Orleans Parish 
helped get twice the amount of Repub- 
lican voles than Ihe previous Senate 

election in 2002, 

College Republicans participat- 
ed in phone banking the weekend 
before the election and waved signs 
in Ihc rain at busy intersections on 
Election Day, 

"We got a call from the Orleans 
Vitler chairperson telling us we were 
getting 49.5 percent of ihe vote and 
that we should stay out there as long 
as possible, and we did," Thompson 

College Democrats also receive 
support from llie Loui.siana Federation 
of College Democrats and the nation- 
al College Democrats organization. 

"What Ihe College Democrats of 
America did more than anything else 
was give clubs the tools they needed 
to succeed. This is an important role 
and one that the Tulane College Democ- 
raLs appreciate," Stowe-Serge said. 

Wolf also said that the most impor- 
tant action the College Democrats 
look for the Nov. 2 election was to 
focus on the Tulane University com- 

"The most effective action we 
look for the presidential campaign 
was to rally our target population, 
Tulane University students cleariy 
chose Kerry, and that is something 
of which we can be proud," Slowe- 
Serge said. 

College Democrats also work with 
other student organizations lo work 
for their common causes. 

Free the Planet, FMLA, SOAR 
and TIPAC arc some ofthe groups 
that Wolf said collaborate with the 
College Democrats and that have 
overlapping membership. 

"Last year we had Social Justice 
Week where all the pnagressive groups 
on campus hosted evcnis, and we're 
going to do that again this spring," 
Wolf said. 

Thompson said he considers Ihe 
College Republicans lo be more of 
a silent force but that he feels many 
ofthe aclivc members arc great lead- 
ers on Tulanc's campus.

a bowl game. 

The team needs to win the

with this weekend's matchup 
against Conference USA opponcni 

Army is 2-7 on the season and 
has lost two in a rov.' after posting 
two wins in consecutive weeks

Much like the Houston team

sca.son. as the team has allowed 30 
points or more in all but two of its 

Despite Army's record. Head 
Coach Chris Scelfo is not taking 
the Black Knights lightly, 

"We're going to have to hit on 
all cylinders on to win on 
Saturday," Scelfo said. "Army has 
beaten two teams ahead of us in 
the standings, so wc really need to 
execute. Offensively our focus has 
been Uierc, but we need to execute 

well because we're about to face a 
verj' strong defense," 

Whether or not the Green Wave 
win tomorrow (6 p.m.. 
Superdome) will depend on which 
Lester Ricard shows up. The 
Tulane quarterback has been 
inconsistent in his rookie season, 
showing flashes of brilliance 
against UAB and Navy but strug- 
gling against teams like East 
Carolina and Houston. 

Ricard completed 18-of-19

downs and 323 yards in strelchuij;

strong effort came just one week 
after Ricard threw for just 149 
yards and two interceptions

is finally ready to lead die Green

since 1963, when the Midshipmen 
were quarterbacked by the great

But Green Wave quarterback 
Lester Ricard hud other ideas, put-

Jovon Jackson collected 95 yards 
and two touchdowns on the

had its best game of the season, as 
Navy's 10 points was the lowest 
allowed this year. 

"This was the first time our 
team played 60 minutes of offense.

Coach Chris Scelfo said, "Our 
offense went as Lester went today. 
and he had an outstanding day. 
Our offensive line had a bounce- 
back game, and our defense did a 
great job stopping the mn. This 
was a total team win." 

Two of Ricard's touchdown 

passes went to Roydell Williams, 
who had six catches for 148 yards, 
including an 87-yurd touchdown

Despite concluding the 
sea.son with a win against 
Southern Miss. the 
women's soccer team was 
disappointed with its 2004 

Although returning nine 
starters, the team's record 
fell from 1 1-7-2 in die pre- 
vious season to 7-10-2 and 
4-5-1 in conference play, 

'The season was disap- 
pointing in the fact dial we 
didn't play to our potential 
game in and game out, and 
our record shows this," 
Head Coach Beisy 
Anderson said. 

The team's inconsistent 
performance was best 
demonstrated during the 
middle of the season when 
the team won three games 
and tied one against 
stronger Conference USA 
teams, but then lost four 
consecutive games to 
weaker teams. 

"Wc had a hard time 
putting it all together," 
goalkeeper Megan Morey 

said, "Different people did 
well on different days." 

Failure to qualif)' for die 
conference loumameni was a 
telling indicator that die team 
did not reach die level of per- 
formance il had the previous 

Senior forward Lindsey 
Morris regretted missing die 

"[It) was disappointing," 
Morris said. "We didn't have 
the right learn chemistry diis 

The season, while falling 
short of expectations, did have 
some high moments. Chief 
among these was Morris' 
breaking of the all-time 
Tulane scoring record. 

"It felt really good. It was 
the best pan of the season for 
me." she said. 

Also important was the 
development of the under- 
classmen who will be return- 
ing next season. .Anderson 
was quick to laud midfielder 
Toni Schlapprizzi. who 
worked her way into a starting 
defensive spot and remained 
consistent throughout the sea- 

Anderson said that iMorey

Receiving official recogni- 
tion for outstanding play was 
sophomore midfielder Jackie 
Obert. who last week was 
named to die third team All-C- 
USA team. She was die only 
member of the Wave to 
achieve the honor. 

Perhaps the best news is 
that die Green Wave will be 
losing very few players. Four 
seniors will be graduating, but 
die heart of the starting lineup 
will be back for next season. 

"We will have a lot of play- 
ers back," Morey said. "We 
should be really good next 

The team will resume train- 
ing in the spring, taking on

If her team works hard in

Tulane student dies in 
car accident on I- 10 

Trevor Morion poses for a photo 

nrd's co-id !l or 

Trevor Barrett Morton, remem- 
bered by many as an intelligent and 
impassioned lover of politics with a 
special inlerest in Israel, died Nov, 
1 1 in a tragic automobile accident 
on Interstate 10 eastbound at 
Clearv'icw Parkway. 

Morton's Honda Civic collided 
with an 1 8-wheeler at approximate- 
ly 10 p.m. The force of the impact 
sent Morton's vehicle across the 
median, and it was hit head-on by a 
Toyota sport utility vehicle. Morton 
was taken to East Jefferson Hospi- 
tal and was pronounced dead around 
11 p.m. 

Morton was a senior at Tulane 
majoring in history and political sci- 
ence with a focus on international 
relations, and minoring in Jewish 

ighisiinior yearaload. 

"He was a major thinker," Adam 
Kwasraan, a Tulane senior who is 
currently studying at Georgetown 
and one of Morton's close friends, 
said. "He took a multi-dimensional 
look at life and the world around him 
... and he wanted to know it all," 

Morton spent the year prior to 
entering Tulane University in Israel 
participating in the Young Judea pro- 
gram, taking courses at Hebrew Uni- 
versity and undergoing basic mili- 
tary training. 

"His time m Israel fortified his 
pre-existing love for his culture and 
the politics of Israel. He became more 
disciplined and it was a very forma- 
tive experience in his life." Josh Mor- 
ton, Trevor's older brother, said. 

Morton's mother and stepfather 
live in Dallas, and his father and step- 
mother live in Roslyn Heights, New 
York. Morton attended high school 
in New York. In addition to his year 

in Israel through Young Judea, Mor- 
ton spent much of his time studying 
abroad. He spent the spring semes- 
ter of last year in London 

"He had a huge circle of friends 
that expanded the country and the 
globe," Josh Morton said. "There 
was a wake in Dallas and one in New 
York and huge numbers have shown 
up. It is really gratifying to the fam- 
ily to see this outpouring " 

As well-traveled as he was, Mor- 
ton's family said that he loved New 
Orleans and loved Tulane Universi- 

"His mother and 1 both attended 
Tulane, and he very much liked being 
with his sister and following in his 
brother's footsteps." Chris Morton, 
Trevor's father, said. 

Morton's sister Marisa is also a 
senior at Tulane majoring in theater 


STD rates high on 
college campuses 

assismni iirws eiiiior 

Nearly one of every two sexually 
active college students will contract 
a sexually transmitted disease by age 
25, according to a survey taken in Feb- 
niaiy by the Uni\'ersity of North Car- 

!t is estimated that the number of 
people living in the United Slates with 
an mcurable STD is over 65 million 
with approximately 1 5 million new 
cases being reported each year. 

Researchers from the American 
Social Health Association indicate 
that two-thirds of all STDs occur in 
young adults 25 years old and younger. 
This ovenvhelming presence places 
STDs among the major concerns on 
college campuses. 

The most common diseases con- 
tracted by students are caused by the 
human papillomavinis, the herpes virus 
and HIV, All three are incurable. 

Other types of STDs include bac- 
terial infections and parasites. There 
arc three common bacterial STDs: 
syphilis, chlamydia and gonorrhea, 
while the most common parasitic 
infection is caused by Trichomonas. 
Both bacterial and parasitic infections 
are curable with appropriate treat- 
ment; however the damage done to 
skin or sexual organs cannot be 

Viral infections cannot be cured 
with current technology. An infect- 

ed penion can only wait for his immune 
system to kill the vims, live indefi- 
nitely with the disease or die as a result 
of it. 

However, Tulane students may 
have a slight advantage in avoiding 

"The data from visits to the Stu- 
dent Health Center last year show that 
STD rates are slaying about the same 
as previous years," Dr, James Farrow, 
director of Student Health Ser\'ices, 
said, "Tulane has a lower rate for all 
major STDs except HPV, which is 
about the normal average for college 

HPV is considered the most com- 
mon STD in the United Stales, which 
could account for Tulane 's higher aver- 
age of the \Trus, According to AS HA, 
studies have shown that the majority 
of sexually active people who have 
been introduced to one or more fomis 
of the HPV will never develop any 
symptoms. The association stales that 
"because HPV is so common and preva- 
lent, a person does not need to have a 
lot of sexual partners to come into con- 
tact with this virus." 

One form of the \iius causes what 
is commonly known as "genital warts." 
This form is not linked with cancer 
and is usually considered harmless. 
A person may contract genital warts 
through direct skin-to-skin contact of 
the pelvic region with an infected per- 
son, regardless of the presence of an 
outbreak. The other form of HPV is 

Steps to prevent STDs 

I 3 Have a mutually monogamous sexual relationship with an uninfeci- 

I ed partner, 

I □ Use condoms correctly and consistently, 

I □ Prevent and control other STDs to decrease susceptibility to HIV infec- 

I tion and to reduce infectiousness if already HIV-infected. 

j Q Have regular checkups for STDs even in the absence of symptoms, 

I and especially if having sex with a new partner, 

I □ Leant the common symptoms of STDs and seek medical help imme- 

I diatety if any suspicious symptoms develop, even if they are mild. 

j Q Avoid having sex during menstruation, HIV-infected women are prob- 

I ably more infectious, and HIV-uninfecled women are probably more 

I susceptible to becoming infected, during that time, 

B □ Avoid anal intercourse, but if practiced, use a male condom, 

D □ Avoid douching because it removes some of the normal protective 

I bacteria in the vagina and increases the risk of getting some STDs. 

typically linked with women and cer- 
vical cancer. 

Preventive Measures 

Aside fiT5m medication, many insti- 
tutes see a need forreform of the phys- 
ical treatment of patients, including 
college students. The Centers for Dis- 
ease Control and Prevcnhon proposed 
guidelines in 2003 for physicians to 
play a larger role in the prevention of 

"Clinicians can address the lack 
of knowledge and awareness about 
the risks and consequences of STDs 
and offer guidance, constituting true 
primary prevention, to help adoles- 
cents develop healthy sexual behav- 
iors and thus prevent the establish- 
ment of patterns of behavior that can 
undermine sexual health," according 
to the CDC, 

The CDC also recommended that 
HIV testing become a routine part of 
medical care, that new models should 
be created for diagnosing HTV infec- 
tions outside of medical settings and 
that testing should be incorporated in 
the routine battery of prenatal tests. 

Ajiolher method of STD preven- 
tion lies on the "grassroots" path of 
President George W. Bush. In this 
year's State of the Union address, tlic 
president pnaposed a "grassroots cam- 
paign to help inform families about 
these medical risks. We will double 
Federal funding for abstinence pro- 
grams, so schools can teach this fact 
of life; Abstinence for young people 
is the only certain way to avoid sex- 
ually transmitted diseases." 

The president is not alone on his 
campaign. The National Instimtes of 
Health also believes that "the best 
way to prevent STDs is to avoid sex- 
ual contact with others." 

The Tulane Student Health Cen- 
ter also offers various preventive mea- 
sures for STDs. The center partici- 
pates in an HPV/ abnormal PAP test 
research program with LSU and also 
a national vaccine trial for herpes pre- 
vention. Tulane also offers the Oiaquick 
20-minute HIV test which may be 
taken confidentially or anonymous- 
ly. All students are able to make 
appointments with their respective 
women's and men's health clinics for 
fijll STD screenings. 

New health care plans 
include policy, rate changes 

Plans favor healthy, low-income employees 


icnior si ajf writer 

Majorrevisions to Tulane facul- 
ty and staff health care plans will cre- 
ate clear winners and losers among 
different groups of employees as the 
University moves to contain rising 
health care costs. 

Taking effect Jan. 1 . 2005, the 
changes to the three plans offered to 
Tulane employees by United Health- 
care are orchestrated to prevent the 
burden of higher medical costs from 
falling on healthy, lower-wage work- 
ers. However, this will come at the 
expense of higher-wage faculty and 
staff members with at-risk medical 

For a married professor with a his- 
tory of heart problems enrolled in 
the most expensive health care plan 
offered to Tulane employees, month- 
ly premiums will continue to rise 
while benefits arc cut and hospital- 
ization and surgical costs surge up 
to 14-fold. 

"There's no question that under 
the right scenario, you're going to 
see quite a jump, And that's why I 
think it was controversial, in the 
sense that some people are of the 
view that that was too much to ask 
of employees, too much of a change," 
former University Senate Faculty 
and Staff Benefits Commince Chair- 
man Russell Robins, an associate 
dean at the A.B. Freeman School of 

Business, said. 

However, for a single parent who 
earns less than S30,000 annually as 
a secretary, there arc definitive gains. 
Monthly medical costs will spiral 
downward in the least expensive 
health care plan offered, and there 
will be no decrease in coverage despite 
a 22.5-perccnt drop in monthly fees. 

Under the announced revisions. 
the most extensive plan, known as 
Plan 10, will have many of its unique 
benefits curtailed, including no out- 
of-pocket expenses for physicians' 
fees, no annual deductible and a 
S250 co-payment for inpatient hos- 

"Plan 10 was working out as an 
extremely expensive plan, to the 
extent that the other two plans were 
effectively subsidizing it," Anthro- 
pology Professor Robert Hill, the 
current Faculty and Staff Benefits 
committee chairman, said. "Changes 
had to be made to bring the costs of 
that plan more in line and reduce the 
burden on the other two plans." 

To reduce this burden, the costs 
of doctor's office visits and pre- 
scription dmgs for Plan 1 subscribers 
have been increased to levels simi- 
lar to the other plans. Also, lOper- 
cent of the bill for hospital services, 
most of which were previously cost- 
free, will now be paid by patients. 
The same hospitalization that would 
cost a patient S250 this month could 
cost up to S3 ,500 in January', includ- 

ing a newly added S500 family 

To maintain Plan 10 under con- 
ditions in place for 2004. Robins said 
a 10-pcrcent across-the-board increase 
in costs for all plans would have been 

"What carried the day was the 
committee and the Senate agreed 
with the notion that Plan 10 partici- 
pants should pay more of the Plan 
10 costs." Robins said. 

Despite early opposition in com- 
mittee and vocal disagreements by 
many faculty and staff members, the 
proposal passed through the Uni- 
versity Senate in October with no 
dissent in a voice vole. 

The primary beneficiaries of the 
health care changes arc single par- 
ents earning under 530,000 annual- 
ly who arc enrolled in either the least 
expensive option, Plan 1 3, or the mid- 
dle choice, Plan 9. 

Single-parent households enrolled 
in Plan 1 3 will sec costs drop 22.5 
percent each month, while such fam- 
ilies in Plan 9 will see a 21-percent 
decrease in costs. A slight reduction 
in costs also occurs for those in the 
most expensive category, 

"The consultants wc hired this 
year discovered that actually it is 
cheaper to insure any number of kids 
than it is to insure a significant other," 
Robins said. 

"The kids just don't require as 
much medical care," Hill added. 

To fiirther aid lower-income work- 
ers, the cost of health care at Tulane 
is staggered so that those who have 
the lowest incomes pay the lowest 
monthly rales within their chosen 
plan depending on the size of their 
families. This egalitarian aspect of 
Tulane's coverage is unique among 
peer institutions, Robins said. 

For minimal coverage - one 
employee enrolled in Plan 13-cosls 
vary from S28.07 monthly for those 
earning under S30.000 annually to 
S 106.86 monthly for those earning 
over 590,000, Likewise, for a fami- 
ly of three enrolled in the most expen- 
sive option. Plan 1 0, costs can vary 
from S457.80 to S658.09 depending 
on income tier. 

"Wc try to treat all employees the 
same in terms of the health care ben- 
efits. There's the intention that all 
employees should have the same 
options," Hill said. 

Still, Robins said, there is always 
more work to he done. Facing crit- 
icism that the current income tiers 
regrcssivcly charge lower-income 
workers a greater percentage of 
their wages for similar health care 
coverage, future changes may 
attempt to alleviate this perceived 

"There's only so much one can 
accomplish in an iteration," Robins 
said. "Wc solved a lot going from 
last year to this year, and next year 
we'll Irj' and solve some more "

As part of a nationwide effort to 
conserve the influenza vaccine, 
Tulane shidents in good health should 
not expect to receive an infiuenza 
vaccine during the 2004-05 season. 

Only about half of the expected 
dosages of influenza vaccine will 
be available in the United Stales this 
year, so the Center for Disease Con- 
trol and Prevention has issued vac- 
cination recommendations for the 
2004-2005 fiu season Dr. James 
Farrow, dirculurof the Tulane Stu- 

dent Health Center, said the Uni- 
versity will adhere to them. 

Certain at-risk groups will be given 
priority for flu shots, including chil- 
dren 6-23 months, persons over the 
age of 65, those with underlying 
chronic medical conditions, preg- 
nant women, residents of nursing 
homes, children under 1 8 on chron- 
ic aspirin therapy, health-care work- 
ers directly involved with patients 
and anyone involved with children 
under six months old.

Freshmen making impact early on 



After months of training, weeks 
of practice and u one-sided exhibi- 
tion game. Tulane basketball 
opens its regular season tonight 
against rival LSU in Baton Rouge. 

The contest is die second game 
of the Louisiana Basketball 
Classic and is scheduled to begin 
at 8 p.m. Louisiana Tech faces 
UL-Lafaycltc in the early game 
and both the championship and 
consolation gomes will be played 
on Sunday, 

In its only exhibition game of 
the preseason. Green Wave domi- 
nated V,A,S,D.A,. 94-51, 

Quincy Davis led the team with 
15 points and 10 rebounds, while 
everyone else played at least 10 
minutes and made contributions to 
the victory. 

All five freshmen were impres- 
sive in their Green Wave debut, 
making Head Coach Shawn 
Finney's job that much more diffi- 
cult. This is the deepest lineup 
Finney has had at Tulane. 

"I have 13 guys and I don't 
know who's not going to play 
yet," Finney said. "That's a great 
thing for a coach because it shows 
we have so much talent on this 

Finney has not even set the 
lineup for his team's season open- 
er. Senior point guard Marcus 
iOnzer, sophomore guard Vincent 
Camper, junior forward Quincy 
Davis, and senior center Ivan 
Pjevccvic are all expected to be in 
the starling lineup. The fifth spot, 
is still up for grabs, with sopho- 
more shooting guard Chris Moore 
and senior Ben Bemfield as the 
leading candidates. 

Going on the road to face LSU 
for the first game of the season 
will be a challenge for a young 
Tulane team, Moravich Arena is 
a hostile environment, and the 
Tigers are a formidable oppo- 

Nevertheless, Finney is excited 
about the game and believes open- 
ing against such a tough opponent 
can be beneficial. 

"Opening up on the road cre- 

ates the mcntiihly that you must be 
mentally tough," Finney laid. 
'The freshmen will get to see what 
college basketball is all about nght

men in scoring and rebounding 
and was second in blocked shots. 
Finney respects Bass's talents and 
the Green Wave will need to con- 
tain him to win. 

Kinzcr's fioor leadership will 
be especially critical in the season 
opener. This year's squad is com- 
prised of eight underclassmen and 
ECinzcr will need to keep his team 
poised during the gome. 

"We've been practicing hard, 
but the level of intensity is defi- 
nitely going 10 step up at LSU," 
Kinzer sold, "Normally I lead by 
example, but this year I'm speak- 
ing a lot more. I've been telling 
my teammates to just try and 
make the easy plays, play with 
confidence, and believe in them- 

Although Kinzer' s perform- 
ance will be crucial, he will not be 
expected to carry the entire team. 

"We don't have one guy who 
can just take over every game," 
Finney said. "We have seven to 
eight players on this team who are 
capable of playing that role. Wc 
have a lot more options that wc 
haven't had in the past." 

A fan bus will be available for 
Tulane students who wish to trav- 
el to Baton Rouge for the game. 
The total price for the evening is 
S40. This includes game tickets, 
IraosponoUon, food and drinks. 
The bus will depart from the 
Uptown campus Wilson Center at 
6 p.m. 

The Tulane home opener will 
be Nov. 27, when the Green Wave 
host Prairie View A&M at 
Fogelman Arena (7 p.m.).

Kobe's back 

sports editor 

I've never seen a man look so 


Imagine yourself in his situa- 
tion. You're on vacation from 
your grueling job (and your "vaca- 
tion" includes several hours a day 
working anyway) and diere you 
are back at your office. 

Only Uiis lime, you're not 
doing your usual job. You're sit- 
ting at a table with your wife to 
your right and many of your boss- 
es and co-workers present as well. 
You're used to all ihe cameras and 
microphones in your face, but not 
like this. This is on national televi- 
sion, not just on ESPN and the 
sports channels; we're talking net- 
works and cable news. Live. 

Even for a guy used to dealing 
with the ovcriy intrusive press of 
the nadon's second largest media 
market, this is a lot. 

But anyway, back to the story. 
As your beloved wife sits by your 
side, you arc now forced to admit 
to the entire nation your most pri- 
vate and shameful secret; You've 
committed adultery. You have 
broken your most sacred vow and 
now almost 300 million people 
(and that's just in the United 
States) know about it. 

That's what Kobe Bryant did 
July 18,2003, 

"I sit here in front of you guys, 
furious at myself," Kobe told the 
press, "Disgusted at myself for 

making a mistake of adultery. I 
love my wife with all my heart. 
She's my backbone." 

And I've never seen such 
anguish on a man's face. 

He did something very wrong 
by cheating on his wife with a 
young woman at Lodge and Spa at 
Cordillera in Edwards, Colo, He 
admitted it and he apologized. 

But why? 

Kobe doesn't owe you or mc an 
apology, he needed only to apolo- 
gize to his wife Vanessa and I'm 
sure he wilt one day have to 
explain the situation to his daugh- 
ter Natalia, now almost two years 
old, But why would he apologize 
to us? 

Because Kobe knows he is a 
role model. Despite being a vers 
private person by nature (which 
there is nothing wrong withl, 
Kobe has embraced his responsi- 
bility as u role model, especially 
for children. 

There is no federal law or NBA 
rule that requires players to be 
symbolic mentors to kids, but the 
good guys in the league — like 
Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson 
and now Kobe — have always 
accepted it as pan of their job 

I don't know Kobe personally, 
obviously, and I don't think any- 
one in die media truly claims to. 
The only time I've met him was 
during the post-game media

The Green Wave delivered two 
strong performances last weekend

season, defeating both UAB and 
USF. The team ended its late-sea- 
son slide and improves its record to 
16-9 on the season and 6-7 in

the team will lake the tournament

Medical student leaves legacy of research 

Jaclyn Rosenson 


Aiidy Manin, a Tulane medical 
school siudenl researching his own 
cancer, sinonasal undlffcrentiQied 
carcinoma, died Nov. 19al 10;IO 
p.m. from complications of the can- 

Friends gathered Monday night 
after Martin's death for an impromp- 
tu memorial at the PJii Chi medical 
tratemity house. Martin had a oadi- 
don of ha\-ing ponies where he encour- 
age anendees to bring bottles of wine, 
and the attendees were encouraged 
to bring a bonle in memor>' of Mar- 
tin. The memorial included a moment 
of silence at 10;10p.m. At press time, 
a date for a formal memorial at the 
School of Medicine had not been set. 

Dr. Ian Taylor, associate senior 
\icc president of the Health Sciences 

Loiter and dean at the medical schooL 
remembered Martin's bravery dur- 
ing his lighl against cancer. 

"Andy was and will remain a \'ery 
special person," Taylor said. "The 
special feelings he had for his fellow 
man are expn^sed in the fact he spent 
his last montlts trying to find a break- 
through that \voiJd help those afDia- 
ed with the disease who might come 
after him." 

Martin was enrolled as a fourtli- 
year medical student at Tulane at ihe 
lime of his death but was not fol- 
lowing the conventional curriculum, 
researching his own disease in a 
Tulane lab instead. 

Martin was diagnosed \v'ilh SNUC 
in July 2000, as he prepared to enter 
Tulane medical school. Martin delayed 
medical school for a year lo under- 
go tieaiment for the illness and enierai 
Tulane with a desire to research the 

rare torm ot sinus cancer, 

"SNUC is one of the truly rare 
cancers of which we know, with 
fewer than 100 cases reponed in ihe 
scientific literature," Martin said in 
an interview with the "Hullabaloo" 
in March 2004. "It is also one of the 
most malignant cancers, with few 
surviving past five years." SNUC 
makes up a very small percentage 
of the cancer cases in the United 
States and is currently incurable, 
Martin began studying SNUC in a 
Tulane lab during his ihird-year of 
medical school. 

According lo a Wall Street Jour- 
nal article published April 1.2004. 
Martin wanted to understand SNUC 
belter and apprcached Chief of Hema- 
tology and Medical Oncology at the 
Tulane School of Medicine, E)r. Tyler 
Curiel about studying (he disease. 
Curiel said ' Ve don't study SNUC." 

but Martin persisied. He offered his 
own cells forstudy and didn't relent 
luiul the lab started research. Two 
Tulane surgeons extracted tumor 
cells fiom Martin's sinuses for growth 
in the lab. 

The process for growing cells in 
the lab is an extremely difficult and 
delicate process. The lab was in dan- 
ger of nmning out of money when 
Curiel's 1 1-year-old son suggested 
a llindraiser and Bounce for Life was 

Curiel, an ultra- marathon run- 
ner, set a world record for dribbling 
a basketball while mnning 108 miles 
for 24 hours in an event called 
Bounce for Life in December 2003. 
The iwo-day event raised 528,000 
for Curiel and Martin's lab research 
on SNUC. 

Martin considered himself lucky 
because he was able to learn more 

about his disease titan most patients, 
Martin's goal included "not only 
learning how these cells look and 
behave, but assessing them as tar- 
gets for some new. novel cancer treat- 
ments," according to the N'larch "Hul- 
labaloo" article. 

When asked by Wall Stojel Jour- 
nal "s Amy DoCkser Marcus how he 
felt when watching the tumor grow 
Martin said, "1 have a certain re\'ul- 
sion for it when 1 see it . . . fbut in the 
lab] I have it helpless, for a change, 
and not the other way around." 

The lab study began wth 1 5 small 
plastic dishes of the tumor cells, and 
only seven sur\'ived over one week- 
end. Last year the lab was able to 
establish the first known line of SNUC 
cells for study, a major breakthrough 
in t!ie field of cancer research. There 


TUPD officer 


senior sidff'd'nUT 

A recent spike in the number of 
armed robberies in the Uptown area 
has students feeling atLxious about 
their safety. Ten police reports have 
been filed with Tulane University 
Police Department since September, 
involving over 20 Tulane students 
who have been held up in armed rob- 
beries near campus. 

The New Orleans Police Depart- 
ment Web site reports a general fall 
in crime in the Uptown area so far 
this year, but the number of city-wide 
armed robberies benveen April and 
June 2004 was up 1 9,3 percent from 
2003 numbers. 

TUPD Sgt. Wilce Gilbert offered 
his suggestion lo bener control crime 
that would involve the campus force 
being given clearance to patrol more 
widely off campus. He said he thinks 
they could help deter, if not prevent, 
ftjturc robberies, making the UplouTi 
area much safer, 

Gilbert is surprised by the rash of 
armed robberies recently, and said 
that the average of t\vo to three armed 
robberies per month was something 
lo be concerned about. 

"Campus is very safe, and the 
immediate areas are pretty safe also. 

resses crime 

hut the areas past a few blocks away 
arc hard lo keep track of. Criminals 
knovvihat if they commit crimes on 
campus, they have a very good chance 
of being caught by TUPD, so they 
move off," Gilbert said. 

Students who live in the Uptown 
area are feeling uneasy with this 
growing trend. 

"1 have to keep myself from think- 
ing about it. If 1 walked around scared, 
I'd be afraid of walking home from 
the librat>' or coming back late at night. 
If something is going lo happen, it's 
going to happen, I lock my doors at 
night, but what else can I really do?" 
junior Lauren Streifer, a Lowerline 
Si, resident, said. "I have ftiends who 
won't visit my house late at night 
because of all the crime that's hap- 
pening right aroimd where I live." 

"I'm not going to iry lo tell stu- 
dents not to go out and drink and 
ha\'c fijn, but I do wanl ihem to make 
sure they are staying conscious enough 
lo make smart decisions and be aware 
of their surroundings." Gilbert said. 

His advice for slaying safe was 
to travel in groups through well-lit 
areas and to avoid "tunnel-vision" 
by staying aleri. Most of ihe rob- 
beries reported happened to studenis

Dear Trevor. 

SinccI first got dtal phone call 
telling me that you had died in a car acci- 
dent I have not been able to get the image 
ofyoursmilingfaccoutofmy head. It 
hasn't really set in yet Your phone num- 
ber is siill in my cell phone. I slill have 
a syllabus thai you lent me. I still have 
the notes that you gave me about the 
next speaker you were going lo bring 
with TIPAC (Tulane Israel Public Affaire 
Committee), I still have about a million 
different things lo ask and tell you. 

Youalwayshada willy joke. You 
always answered my questions. You 
always had an answer. You always were 
someone who could be counlcd on. You 
alway.s loved Israel in a way that wa,s so 
beautiful it brings tears to my eyes righl 
now as I realize thai you will not make 
Aliyoh as you planned. You always had 
a smile, 

I want the people of Tulane, the stu- 
dents that share your encyclopedic undcr- 
■iianding of politics, ihe Jewish com- 

munit)', and the people of Israel to know 
and remember your name. This week 
we lost a brilliant person that carried 
hope, activism, and a pursuil of Justice. 
There is nothing I can say thai will 
make what happened any easier for the 
many people whose lives you have 
impacted so deeply. However, lean 
promise you that thai we will do our pan 
in keeping your memory alive. When 
I stand al the Kotcl (the VVcstem Wall) 
in JcrtLsalem this December I will bring 
your memory there. When I am faced 
with ami-Israel lies thai various "inlel- 
leciuaLs" find so fashionable these day 
I will expose the Iruth as you so elo- 
qucnily did. When I sec young Amer- 
ican Jews flourishing in their Young 
Judca year course I will know thai every- 
thing that you stood for still sUinds loday. 

Someone who misses you very much,

Last Thursday. Trevor Monon was tragi- 
cally killed in a car accident. Trevor's family 
and friends remember many things about him. 
Friends remember his smile and fiicndly face, 
his professors remember his dedication and 
interest in political science, I, as Rabbi of the 
Chabad House, remember his enthusiasm for 
the Sunday morning Minyanaircs Club, 

But. c\'ei>'one knew that Trevor's strongest 
interest was Israel. He had done a year in Israel 
with Young Judea and the experience trans- 
formed him. He deeply wanted to help Israel 
findajust and secure peace, ensure fair cov- 
erage for Israel in the local and national press, 
encourage sludeni activism on behalf of Israel 
and inform students and other young people 
of tlieir opportunities lo visit and make a home 
in Israel. Trevor's fiiture included a plan lo 
make Aliyah and scltic in Lsracl and fiilly expe- 
rience the ancient land of his people. 

At Ihe rool of Trevor's efToris, like ihe efioris 
of hundreds of odicr Jewish Americans across 
the country, was Ahaval Yisrael - love for the 
pcopleoflsracl. Trevor Morton's life was the 
embodiment of this principal. 

The people of Israel never knew Trevor 
Morton. They had no way of knowing that, 
thousands of miles from their homes, a 21- 
year-old college student cared about their wel- 
fare. They did not know tliai part of die Amer- 
ican Jewish support for Israel was tlie worit of 
a young man fiiDm Dallas, who concerned him- 
self with their safely. They were not aware liial 
an inlclligenl, earnest guy with a ready smile 
was brushing up on his Hebrew and planning 
lo join them. 

Here, al Tulane, we arc wracked with grief 
and pain. And most of all, the pain is from the 
promise thai is losl; fivam a wonderful life dial 
was inlemiplcd. Our loss is grcal. but the loss 
is greatest for the people oflsracl. 

On Thursday, ihc people of Israel were 
informed of the death ofonc of their worst ene- 
mies. Bui, no one has told them il)al tlicy also 
losl one of Ihcirdearesi friends. 

People of Israeli Trevor Morton loved you. 
May his soul be bound up in the bond of 
Ihc Living G-d.

The Tulane Hullabaloo 


After a /asl-miniilc win at TCU last week, 
the Green Wave will be a virtual lock for a 
bowl game with a win over Louisville 

Suhas Subramanyam 

(oiitribmin^ writer 

About 1) monih iigo. ihc Grccii Wave 
wm sitting M the botlom of the Conference 
USA standings as niany began viewing 
this season us a rebuilding year. But al'icr 
winning four out of iLs last five games, 
including last week's thrilling 35-3 1 win 
Hi TCU. the Green Wave will become 
bowl-eligible with a win tomorrow. 

StanJint; in the way tomorrow is No. 7 
l.ouisvillf. which is heavily favored and 
by fur ihc Green Wave's biggest test this 
season. The Cardinals (9-1), have already 
clinched the C-USA title and ore looking 
lo go perfect in conference. The contest 
was originally scheduled for Sept. 18. but 
was rescheduled after New Orleans was 
evacuated with Hurricane Ivan approach- 

Although becoming bowUcligible docs 
not guoraniee a bowl bid for the Green 
Wave, it is unlikely to go uninvited with 
an upset over Louisville. 

"What we have right now is four poten- 
tially bowl-eligible teams playing for two 
spots on Saturday," Tulane Athletic 
Director Rick Dickson said. "[Some possi- 
bilities include] the Hawai'i Bowl, the 
Silicon Valley Bowl in San Jose which is 
one that probably has the most promise in 
regards to us, and depending on other 
moves, possibly the Las Vegas Bowl. I 
don't have any certainties, but given 
where we stand today, if [we're bowl eli- 
gible] after Saturday, 1 like our chances 
very much." 

Louisville (9-1,7-0) possesses the most 
potent offense in the country, leading the 
country in total offense (538.2) and scor- 
ing offense (49.8). 

All-Conference quarterback and Baton 

Rouge native Stefan LeFors has thrown 
for 2,157 yards and 17 touchdowns 
despite giving up a quancr of his snaps to 
backup freshman Brian Brohm. 

Running backs Eric Shetion and 
Michael Bush have combined to rush for 
1.392 yards and 23 touchdowns. 

"(What impresses me] is how balanced 
they arc," Green Wave Head Coach Chris 
Scelfo said. 'Their offensive line is very 
good, their quarterback is an operator, 
their running backs all can go the distance 
on every play, and their receivers are very 
talented. They probably have 10 or 12 
NFL prospects on their team, and they uti- 
lize all of them," 

Last week, the Cardinals didn't even 
need LeFors to demolish Cincinnati 70-7. 
To put the point total in perspective, the 
most scored by the Cardinals since 1955, 
was more than what the Louisville basket- 
ball team scored against the Bearcats last 

Meanwhile, the Green Wave offense 
has been averaging 45.2 points per game 
in its last four wins. Last week freshman 
Richard Irvin, making his first start. 
threw his fifth touchdown of the 
game with 43 seconds left to help Tulane 
beat TCU. However, the defense has 
been wildly inconsistent this year, giving 
up an average of over 30 points per 

"(The Green Wave] are playing very 
well offensively." Louisville Head Coach 
Bobby Petrino said. "They've got some 
really talented receivers, a good running 
back, and [Richard Ir\'tn] made some big 
plays down the stretch to win the game last 
week. Defensively, they're struggling a lit- 
tle bit. and they're not the biggest group 
that we've played all year. But they're 
going to angle and move and mind-game. 

Senior Chris Bush pu 

and it's going to be imponant for us to 
block their movement up front. " 

In reality, stopping the Louisville 
offense will be a tough task for the Green 
Wave defense. Even in their lone loss of 
the season. Louisville put up 38 points on 

the road against a ninUi-runked Miami 
defense that features several NFL 

Any mental lapses or hesitation by the 
defense, especially early, could lead to a 
Louisville rout. 

However, if the defense can keep ihe 
Tulane in the game, and if Richard Irvin 
and the Tulane offense can step up against 
an underrated Louisville defense, the 
Green Wave could be headed to a post sea- 
son for the second lime in three years.

TCU came into last Saturday's 
game against Tulane looking to 
close out their Conference USA 
tenure with a win. Through the 
first 56 minutes, it looked as 
though they would succeed. 
Instead, two players who were 
only backups a couple of weeks 
ago helped engineer a game win- 
ning drive for the Green Wave, 
sending the Homed Frogs off with 
a loss and keeping Tulanc's hopes 
for a possible bowl berth alive. 

While Tulane was able lo match 
every point put up by TCU 
ihroughoui Ihc game, the Green 

Wave was unable to secure a lead 
until die final minute. A fierce 
defensive stop at Tulane's goal 
line kept the Homed Frogs out of 
the end zone and Tulane within 
three points, but left it having to go 
the entire length of the field wiUi 
less than four minutes to play. 

Showing a maturity rare in 
young players, redshin freshman 
quanerback Richard In'in calmly 
drove the Wave 99 yards, culmi- 
nating in a 12-yard touchdown 
pass to senior wide receiver Chris 
Bush with 40 seconds left to put 
Tulane up 35-3 1 . Bush had a great 
gome, finishing with 136 yards and 
two touchdown catches, 

"Going into thai final drive, 1

Rieard left off leading (he Wave 

was just diinking, "Rock and roll, 
let's do this.'" Irvin said. "We 
practice this every week. [Bush] 
made a heck of a catch." 

Any doubts there may have 
been about Irvin's abilities as a 
starting quanerback were silenced 
by his play. He finished the game 
22-of-37 passing with five touch- 
down passes, and only one inter- 
ception. The five touchdowns were 
the second highest single game 
total by a Wave signal caller this 
year, and more than double his 
previous output for the whole year. 

Tulane won the coin toss and 
deferred receiving the ball until Uie 
second half. That decision almost 
proved lo be the Wave's undoing. 
On their first possession, TCU 
marched down the field with 
seemingly no effort, quickly tak- 
ing the lead and the momentum in 
the game. Tulane was forced to 
play catch-up for the rest of the 
game, starling with the next drive. 

After the Homed Frogs' firsi 
drive. Tulane responded with a 
score of their own, a 3-yard pass 
from Irvin lo Roydell Williams. 
That grab was Williams' 34ih 
career touchdown, setting a new 
C-USA record for career touch- 
down catches, 

The two teams then finished off 
the quarter with a pair of three and 
outs. TCU began the second quar- 
ter as they had started the first, 
going 69 yards for a score, Fifty- 
iwo of those yards came on a third 
down pass to running back Robert 
Merrill, highlighting die difficulty 
Tulane had at times containing 
TCU in third and long situations. 

As they were able to do the 
whole game. Tulane matched the 
Frogs' score with a touchdown of 
their own. lying the game up at 14. 
The Wave's yardage was account- 
ed for almost entirely by rtinning 
hack Malt Fone. After his break- 
out game against Army, the fresh- 
man had another strong outing in 
Fort Worth, widi 135 all-purpose 
yards for the day. 

While he didn't find the end 
zone this game, Fone still made 
some key plays to keep Wave

Something is missing on the 
sports landscape. 

Sure, the NFL is in full swing, 
basketball season is getting under- 
way and Green Wave football is 
actually putting together an 
impressive run. 

The Boston Red Sox even won 
the World Series in thrilling fash- 
ion, which was perhaps the great- 
est thing 10 happen to me to at this 
point in my life. But once the 
hangover of the Red Sox champi- 
onship wore off I realized how 
badly I miss the National Hockey 
League, which appears ready to 
completely shut down the 2004- 
2005 season. 

Wail, whai was thai sound you 
just heard? It was the sound of 95 
percent of our readers simultane- 
ously turning the page at the mere 
mention of hockey. And that is 

perfectly fine widi me. I am not 
writing to convince you to like or 
watch hockey, because I know that 
there are a few true hockey fans 
here at Tulane. and this anicle is 
for them, I hope the NHL realizes 
how badly it is huning itself and its 

One of the things that makes 
hockey so enjoyable to watch is 
the total dedication to the game 
that the players seem to show 
whenever they lace up their skates, 
an element that is missing in other 
American professional spons. 

Only a hockey player would 
willingly dive in front of a piece of 
frozen rubber fired at 90 miles per 
hour with no hesitation. 

Only in hockey do athletes take 
pride in being considered 
"grinders," who make their living 
doing the little things like body 
checking in the corners and 
forecbecking as opposed to putting 
up big numbers. In hockey. 

grinders are as valued and loved 
by fans as the goal scorers who 
make the SponsCenter highlights. 

Hockey superstars show the 
same dedication to the game as 
role players with Ihe exception of a 
few (Jaromir Jagr, I'm looking in 
your direction. Jagr can never be 
forgiven for the lackluster attitude 
he brought to Washington no mai- 
ler how many goals he scores in 
the future). Colorado .Avalanche

with broken bones throughout the 
playoffs a few seasons ago in the

Tulane earned die fifth seed ai the

The Green Wave emerged vic-

in three games.

Tulane went on to play in Uie 
SEC/C-USA challenge where they 
faced off against LSU and 
Alabama. The Tulane-LSU match 
went to five games and i^esulted in 
a 3-2 win for LSU and Tulane's 
first loss to an in-state team since 
the 2002 season. 

The defeat by LSU snapped a 
13-maich winning streak against 

for the Green Wave against in- 
state teams. 

Tulane ended the season with a 
3-1 loss to Alabama. 

The season, which was the last 
for Ihe Green Wave's four seniors, 
was a rollercoaster ride that 
included both a five-match win- 
ning streak as well as a five-match 
losing streak. Tulane also lost its 
slaning setter, junior Katie Case, 
halfway through the season to a 
knee injurj'.

UNO paper set adrift 

'Driftwood' shut down due to debt, staff surprised 

Meera Unnithan 

ttin section editor 

The entire staff of the Universi- 
ty of New Orleans newspaper, the 
"Driftwood," found themselves with 
an early Christmas surprise this past 
December: They were fired, 

UNO Chancellor Timothy P Ryan 
issued a memo Dec. 6, 2004 to the 
stafTof the "Driftwood." effective- 
ly shutting down publication of the 
paper for financial reasons. In his 
memo, Ryan staled that "the 'Drift- 
wood' has been in debt for some time 
now... [and] the University caimot 
afford to continue absorbing this 
debt and as a result 1 am taking the 
regrettable but necessary step, effec- 
tive immediately, of suspending pub- 
hcationofthe 'Drifhvood.'" 

The paper had been in financial 
trouble for some years, and this year 
the operating budget was at S 89 ,000 
and the paper had a ciimulative deficit 
of 3128,000, according to a Times- 
Picayune article published Dec. 8, 
2004, The "Driftwood" has been 
operating since 1959, 

"Driftwood" staff members 
expecting to work through the hol- 
iday break instead found themselves 
instructed to clear out their person- 
al belongings from the newspaper 
office under the supervision of a Uni- 
versity employee. Locks to the office 
door were changed shortly after, 

"It's the way he did it that's real- 
ly insulting. He even went out of 
his way, personally, to stop our last 
paycheck. Our faculty advisor signed 
off on our last week's pay, and [Ryan] 
went to the payroll office to stop the 
checks .., They basically just 

washed their hands of us, Nice, huh?" 
Caleb Prey, managing editorof the 
"Driftwood" prior to its shutdown 
and UNO senior majoring in Eng- 
lish, said. 

One of the reasons cited for the 
fiscal troubles of the newspaper with 
a circulation of 6.000, were salaries 
paid to staff members. According to 
Frey, the "Driftwood" was half-fund- 
ed by University student fees and 
half-funded by revenue generated 
by advertising. 

Frey confirmed that some staff 
members were paid for their work 
on the paper, but said diat it was also 
a form of work-study for some stu- 
dents, and students had the option 
of gening credit hours for their par- 
ticipation on the paper. Prey said the 
school had not made arrangements 
to assist students using the paper as 
work-study to find new employment. 

Members of the "Driftwood" staff 
and faculty advisor Peter Busows- 
ki had met with both Ryan and 
Provost Rick Barton to discuss the 
financial situation of the paper, but 
staff members indicated they had no 
idea the paper would be shut down. 

In a notice posted on the "Drift- 
wood's" Web site, Frey urges mem- 
bers of the UNO community to con- 
tact the chancellor in an effort to 
reinstate publication of the paper. 
In response to the Web site article, 
many students have posted online 
feedback regarding the matter, 

"Driftwood" editor-in-chief at 
the time of the shutdown Meredith 
Bailey addressed readers of the paper 
with the statement "I am saddened 
by the University's decision ... Our 
student newspaper is a forum in 

which students and other members 
of the diverse and growing UNO 
commimity are heard and informed 
of important news and events. It is 
our voice and though it has been 
silenced for a brief period, we can 
still be heard." 

Deborah Mortellaro, former edi- 
tor-in-chief of the "Driftwood" from 
1996-98. contacted the Southeast- 
em Journalism Conference, for infor- 
mation on the legality of the shut- 
dovm, \^ith regard to a possible vio- 
lation of First Amendment rights. 
Mortcliaro stated that during her 
tenure as editor, she and former 
"Driftwood" faculty advisor Don 
Lee Keith, who died in July 2003, 
"reviewed the budget together every 
month, and he did not allow me to 
go over budget ... I inherited a huge 
debt from the editor before me and 
it took both of my years to get us into 
the black." 

UNO does not have a journalism 
program, so many students hoping 
for a career in journalism looked to 
the "Driftwood" for valuable expe- 
rience. Amanda Brown, news edi- 
tor of the "Driftwood" prior to the 
cessation of publication, said in a 
posting on the paper's Web site "I 
really did not know what I wanted 
to do with my life until I started work- 
ing for the 'Driftwood.' Not only 
did I become a good writer, I became 
a better person. I'm going to be at 
UNO for four more semesters, I hope 
'Driftwood' will re-open soon so I 
can have a part of my life back." 

Ryan stated in his memo that he 
intends to have the "Driftwood" rein- 
stated "no later than fall semester of

Know Your Campus 

Career Services looks to 
expand opportunities 

"Know Your Campus" is a recurring column in which the "Tulane Hullabaloo" will showcase a Tulane 
organization, department, student, staff or faculty member, in the hopes of improving campus aware- 
ness. The first subject for "Know Your Campus" is the Tulane Career Services Center. 

saiioT staff writer 

Students looking for the perfect internship, job, 
summer job or those wondering what their major 
can lead to may find the answer at the Career Ser- 
vices Center, 

"Every student, , , should be knocking on our 
door and finding out what we arc all about," Rober- 
ta Kaskel, executive director of career services 
and student employment, said. 
' The counselors at the Career Services Center 
are Tulane's local professionals that students can 
turn to for advice on riisumds, interview skills and 
job search techniques. Kaskel sees their purpose 
as "helping students move through the process of 
forming a vocational identity, acquiring the expe- 
riences needed to pursue that Identity and then to 
actually engage in the scorch for either a position 
or graduates similar opportunities." 

In the summer 2004, the Career Services Cen- 
ter merged with the former Office of Student 
Employment, The latter office's role was to help 
Tulane students find part-time work during school, 

"I am really excited to have the opportunity to 
merge these two offices, because when you think 
about it, all the opportunities that somebody could 
have as a student employee really start to devel- 
op that professional identity," Kaskel said. 

To simplify matters. Kaskel explained the three 
main steps of the job process that the Career Ser- 
vices Center helps students through during their 
college career. The first step is to help students 
evaluate who they arc, their interests, values and 
other factors that can help students choose their 
studies at Tulane, During the second step, the coun- 
selors help students find ways they can explore 
those interests and gain experience. Finally, the 
Career Services Center helps students search for 
a full-time job, on internship, a summcrjobora 
graduate or professional school. 

The Career Services Center offers a variety of 
services beyond career counseling and helping 
students with their r6sum6 writing and interview 
skills. Some of the additional services include con- 
necting students with alumni through the "wave-

of the Career Services Center. Kaskci expressed 
a desire to raise this number to 80 percent through 
the new programs that are being established. 
The Career Services Center is starting what 
Kaskel called "a community outreach approach." 
making a push to go to the students, instead of 
waiting for the students to come to them. 

"All of the counselors are assigned to be 
specific liaisons to specific colleges, so that 
they can get to know the students and faculty 
in that college, and plan programming precisely 
for those colleges ... So we can tailor our ser- 
vices to the wishes and needs of students in par- 
ticular majors." 

Kaskel also hopes to increase student par- 
ticipation through the internship and job fairs, 
and by using focus groups, dialogues and sur- 
veys to find out what students want. 

One of the new programs that will be offered 
this spring semester for engineering students 
is a job search club. Career Services Center will 
not be nmning this club; instead they plan to 
be facilitators, while the students run the club 
helping one another with the job search process, 
Kaskel hopes to see "students more involved 
in the day-to-day work, in forming the philos- 
ophy and management of this office," 

A program to promote this goal includes a 
student advisory board to their office, This will 
enable the Career Services Center to hear dircct- 
ly from students what types of services they 
want offered. During this semester the Center 
is evaluating student interest in becoming peer 
advisors to help other students with r6sum6 cri- 
tiques and mock inter\'iews, and hopes to have a 

hosting career fairs and workshops. 

In future years the Career Services Center hopes 
to offer educational opportunities designed to 
address the different issues a student faces each 
year. Through these opportunities the Center hopes 
students will be able to relate what they arc doing 
academically with what they plan to do aflcr grad- 
uation, whether in the workforce or graduate school. 

Currently at Tulane, only 30 to 40 percent of 
the student body in a given year takes advantage 

The Career Services Center gives students "the

With professional athletes, the phrase 
"reinvesting in the communiiy" comes up 
fairly often. It refer, to the way players 
donate parts of their salaryr lo ccrlain 
charity organizations or communiiy 

For Danny Wuerflcl, however, the 
cost of coniribuiion means more dian just 
a simple financial donation. Wuerllel, 
who played seven season^ in the NFL 
after winning the Heisman Trophy and a 
national ehampionship at Florida, is 
investing not only his money but also his 
life into the New Orleans community. 

"On one hand, from the outside, it 
might appear like it's really noble and 
sacrificial, but from m> perspective it 
was just a natural thing to do next." 
WucrtTcl said. "It's what 1 wanted to do 
and it made ihe most sense, so I was just 
ih.rillcd wilh the opportunilv."

New Orleans Saints in 1^97. he w.u; sent

To many, however, the choice to leave

The 19th annual Manin Luther 
King, Jr. Week for Peace brought 
Kwcisi Mflime, outgoing president 
and CEO of the NAACP as Ihe 
keynote speaker and other com- 
memorative events lo Loyola, Xavier 
and Dillard campuses last week. 

Tulane student Lucy Killcn was 
honored as one of the recipients of a 
Martin Luther King, Jr. award for 
outstanding service. 

This year's week started with an 
inlcrfailh service at Dillard Univer- 
sity Jan. 1 7, a convocation and lec- 
ture at Xavier Jan. 1 9 and a candle- 
lighl march that started at Xavier 
University last Friday afiemoon and 
ended with Expressions of Unity at 
Loyola University in the evening. 

Although Tulane did not host any 
of the three events, the University 
co-sponsors the week with the three 
other schools. There were Tulane 
students and faculty present al every 
event. Carolyn Barber-Pierre, assis- 
tant vice president and director of 
student programs, chairs the com- 
mittee thai plans the events for the 

The convocation ceremony was 
led by ihe Rev, JelTery M, Ott. uni- 
versity chaplain at Xavier. Ott read 
Psalms 66: 8-9 and encouraged dia- 
logue among students. Dr. Lester 
Lefton, senior vice president for aca- 
demic affairs and provost at Tulane 
University, followed with a wel- 
come address centered around this 
year's theme: "Building a Culture 
of Peace." 

Dr. Jill Rovaris. director of the 
Educational Resource Center al Tulane 
University then spoke in place of her 
husband Dr. Dercck Rovaris. who 
was home with Ihe flu. Rovans gave 
a brief history of the MLK commit- 
tee and introduced the Martin Luther

ty service background and a dedica- 
tion to improvemcnl.

show at Loyola was an energetic 
element of the "Expressions of 
Unity" program. 

Xavier University and Killen were 
recipients of the award. 

Killen said receiving the honor 
was a humbling experience. "To think 
I have been able to contribute lo 
Tulane and New Orleans [in] the 
ways Lester [Lefion] listed makes 
me proud of my doings." Killen said. 

The Martin Lulher King. Jr. Pres- 
idential Lifetime Achie\'emenl award 
was presented to Lolis Edward Elie, 
a native of New Orleans who is cur- 
rently a lawyer and was involved 
with the Civil Rights movement. Elie

Dr. Norman Francis, president of 
Xavier University, introduced Mfume 
who began his speech with the com- 
ment, "like J. Lo said lo Ben Affleck. 
'1 won't keep you long.'" 

Mfume referred to the biblical 
story about Joseph and his brolhers 
as an example of why the past should 
be remembered so ii is not repeated. 
He quoted an old African proverb 
which says,"lt's not what you call 
me, it's what 1 answer to" in discus- 
sion of redefining and knocking down 

"There will be those who coun- 
sel you after this day, those who coun- 
sel you to be silent and look the other 
way . . . never stand mute in the face 
of injustice," he said, 

Mfiime quoted King and said in 
conclusion, "Now is Ihe time and 
today is the day." 

The speech ended with a stand- 
ing ovation and was followed by a 
short question and answer session. 

One hundred fifty people, about 
50 of whom were from Tulane par- 
ticipated in the candlelight march 
Friday. A short speech was given by 
Ted Kwani of Loyola University in 
which he praised the students for 
slaying late al ihc polls in Novem- 
ber lo make sure their voices were 

The march was peacefiil with sUj- 
denls holding their candles and ran- 

domly singing or joking with others, 

Kristin Lynch, a sophomore at 
Tulane and a member of African Con- 
gress at Tulane, African American 
Womens Society and National Soci- 
ety of Black Engineers shared her 
thoughts on the week. Lynch said it 
was important for her to take part in 
the week's events as a way to remem- 

"It is something to look fonvard 
to each year," she said. 

Lynch attended Mfiime's speech 
and said she "thoroughly enjoyed it." 

When asked about the represen- 
tation of Tulane shidcnLs at the c\'enis

D.C. last week lo attend Ihe inau- 
guration and some of its festivities, 

"I support the president," Well- 
bom said, "For me, going to the 
inauguration was kind of like going 
to Disneyland and meeting Mick- 
1,-y Mouse," 

Wellborn, a sophomore major- 
ing in political science and inter- 
naiional devclopmeni, said she 
appreciated ihe fact that people 
came for a different reason. 

"It was good lo sec people sup- 
porting Ihe president and his goals 
and wanting lo work with his agen- 
da, but il was also good to see peo- 
ple voicing their different opin- 
ions," she said. 

Dahlbcrg, a Ncwcomb fresh- 
man and another member of Ihe

ing off to one side of the slage in 
one of the first rows of standing 
audience members. 

"We had a good view of Ihe 
parade route," Dahlbcrg said, "and 
we could sec the president off in

After hearing the president's 
speech, Wellborn said she was very 
impressed with the topics covered 
and disappointed with the media 

"The only thing they gol was that 
he hadn't mentioned Iraq by name. 
That's all anyone gol out of a 21-

lo want to discuss the domestic agen- 
da ... there was just more concern 
about what he ditln't say about Iraq," 
she said. 

Dahlbcrg said that plans lo attend 
Ihe inauguration began election night 
and that they requested tickets and 
booked flights before Christmas. 

"Sen. David Villcr was actually 
on Ihc same flight with us to D.C," 
Dahlbcrg said. "And his staff invit-

McAlisicr Audilorium served as 
host to the New Orleans Southeast 
Asia Tsunami Relief Concert Jan, 
22, an event that showcased dances 
and music from around the world,

for Ihc event. 

"We made more than S7,000 at 
Ihc event," Indian Association of 
New Orleans Vice President Amit 
Ghosh said. "We had about 450 peo- 
ple come out, with many giving extra 
donations of S2 lo S30 along wilh 
their cost of admission." 

Instead of giving the money direct- 
ly to a large inlcmational organiza- 
lion, a committee created by the spon- 
soring organizations will determine 
how the money is distributed to the 

Eleven groups performed al the 
concert, including Irish folk dancers 
and Indian dance groups. 

"It was a great success. It was the 
first time that all these performers 
were on Ihc same slagc," organiser 

and Tulane faculty Latha Rajan said. 
"We're thinking about doing it every 
year for a different cause."

iUff wnlcr 

Being ranked No. I has 
brought a loi of attention to the 
Green Wave, and the spolJighl is 
shining brightly on junior Brian 
Bogusevic, the team's leader. 

Bogusevic is the biggest star 
of the talented Green Wave 
squad, and he has shown no 
signs of .slowing down. 

Nobody was suqirised when 
Bogusevic was named the pre- 
season favorite to win ihc 
Confctuncc USA MVP award. 
After a strong freshman per- 
formance in 2003 in which he 
earned freshman ail-American 
Honors from Baseball America 
and Collegiate Baseball, 
Bogusevic had a breakout soph- 
omore sca.'ion both offensively 
and on the mound. 

He emerged as the team's top 
offensive weapon and its most 
reliable pitcher. On top of that, 
he is also a team leader in the 

"He has a tremendous impact 
as far as being one of our start- 
ing pitchers and hitting for us." 
senior outfielder Matt Barkett 
said. "In the middle of the line- 
up, he helped all of the rest of us 
out with his productinty. But it 
goes beyond that. His leadership 
through his hard work cihic r\ibs 
off on all the rest of us and 

makes us better." 

Last season, he led the learn 
in RBIs with 68. triples with 
four and total bases al 132. His 
10 home runs and 80 hits tied for 
second best and his nine stolen 
bases ranked third on the team. 

The outfielder's combination 
of speed, power and ability to 
get hits make him one of the 
elite hitlers in college baseball. 

Then then: is his pitching, 
which helped bolster a Tulane 
staff depleted by injuries. The 
lefthander finished second in C- 
USA with nine wins and seventh 
in the league with 84 strikeouts. 

His control was excellent as 
he walked only 25 batters in his 
firM full season as a starter for 
Tulane. He proved to be \ivy 
durable as well, pitching a con- 
fcrcncc-high 111,2 innings and 
tossing three complete games. 

"Brian is a great two-way 
player," Head Coach Rick Jones 
said. "Most people don't even 
realize it. but he's also the 
fastest guy on the club. He 
might bat leadoff this year 
because he's such a catalyst and 
puts pressure on the defense "

of slowing down during lu.

Ben Eisenberq 

The Green Wave enters the 2003 season 
amidst high expectations as the No. I team in 
the nation according to Baseball America. 

Following a season-ending loss in the super 
rcgionals last season to eventual national 
champion California Siaic-Fullerton. the team 
IS armed with a core of returning talent, expe- 
rience and highly touted new additions that 
many expect will allow Tulane to advance to 
ihe College World Scries for the first time 
since 2001, 

"This year we have a rare blend of talent. 
experience and depth," Head Coach Rick 
Jones said. "Our pitching staff is a little deep- 
iT than our 2001 Worid Series club, and we 
have experienced guys as well as talented 
ireshmen who can contribute right away," 

The team is loaded with upperclassmen and 
i> led by preseason all-American junior Brian 
Bogusevic. Five seniors, including catcher 
Greg Dini, outfielder Mall Barket, second 
baseman Joe Holland, designated hitler Scoil 
Madden and shortstop Tommy Manzella 
return to the lineup as well. 

All six upperclassmen were starters by the 
end of last season in the high octane Green 
Wave lineup, which ranked ihird in 

Conference USA m baiting average, runs 
scored and slugging percentage. 

Manzella, Barket, Dini. Bogusevic and jun- 
ior left-handed pitcher J.R. Crowell were all 
voied to die preseason all-C-USA team. Many 
of the returnees could have left for the major 
leagues but opted to stay at Tulane for another 

"Knowing we were going to be good com- 
ing back, plus Ihe academics of this school 
make people want to stay." Barket. "We value 
Tulanc's good academics, and we all know 
ihat baseball isn't going to be around forever." 

Bogusevic will look lo build upon an 
impressive resume from last season. He tallied 
a team-high 68 RBIs and led the team in total

In his 1 1 seasons as the Head Baseball 
coach. Rick Jones has led Tulane to eight 
NCAA regionals in 10 years including a 
school-record six consecutive trips. He owns a 
career .676 record with a 426-204-1 record as 
a head coach and was named the Division I 
Coach of the Year award in 2001. This year, 
expectations are at an all-time high with the 
Green Wave entering the season with Baseball 
America's No. I ranking. 

Head Coach Rick Jones' experienced squ. 
has the talent Ihcy need lo win. 

"Hullabaloo:" How have practices been 
going so far? 

Rick Jones: They're going well so far and 
I expected tliem to be crisp because we have 
a veteran club who understands what we do. 
There's not a whole lot of education on 
what our format's going to be on a daily 
basis so it makes it easier to get into the 
drills and they move pretty smoothly. We 
also had that fall practice period for 24 
days where our freshmen and transfers 
were able to get their indoctrination into 
the program. We've been very crisp in our 
drills so far and we've had productive 

H: It would be difficult to believe that 
the players are not talking about the pre- 
season No. I ranking. 

RJ; You have to remember that to be 
ranked No. 1, you have to have a com- 
bination of two things. You have lo 
have an extremely talented group, but 
you also have to have a lot of expcri- i 
encc. The fact thai we do have a lot of 
experience means that there's not a 
whole lot of talk about [the No. 1 rank- 
ing] because diey all understand tliat 
that's a preseason, subjective poll. You 
cannot control perception; perception I 
is extemal. It's not about perception. I

The curse 
of No. 1 

In J year rcmcmbcicd for the end of the Cunc 
ol llic Bambino, another curw quickly run iu 
ugl> head li> tnnurc Tulane arid all of Wave 

It \\ Ihe cuise of the prewawn No. I rankini;. 
TTiai rank wus recently bestowed upon the uniui- 
pccimg \i)uK of llie Tulane buicball learn hy 
Ba\cball America. 

The ranking is the highcti in 1)3 yean of 
Tuhne baseball, surpasning Ihe team's previous 
high of No. 3 in Ihc 2002 Collegiate Baseball 
prc>cason poll. Tliat uiuad. which had advanced 
lo ihc College World .Scries the prcviouv souon. 
finished the 2002 campaign unrankcd. 

The cur-ic of the preseason number one \s 
morbidly effective. Rarely has a team who 
claimed the top spul in either the Baseball 
America or Collegiate Baseball preseason prills 
has gone on to be crowned champions in Omaha. 
Last season's top choice in both polls, Rice, 
finished the year ranked 10th after failing to win 
its own regional bracket. The year before, pre- 
season No, I Georgia Tech finished 14th. 

Since 19R4. only two of the teams ranked 
number one in the BaiiebatI America preseason 
poll have gone on to win ihe College Worid 
Scries. LSU accomplished the wire to wire feat 
twice, in 1993 and again in 1996, while 19 other 
squads over that time period were unable lo ful- 
fill their high expectations, The xvorsl pan of the 
curse is the unattainable expectation and the fuel 
that there is nowhere to go in the rankings hut 

Anything less than a College World Scries 
championship would result in a lower final rank- 
ing, this for a team tiiai barely finished last sea- 
son in the top 20 and enters this campaign with 
many new faces and just as many question marks 
"The big thing to remember is that it's the pre- 
sea-son poll," Head Coach Rick Jones said, 
"There's a reason you play out die season. Thai's 
how you find oui who's really No. 1 and that will 
be our goal, to be No, 1 in the final poll." 

All of Wave Nation hopes to see that goal 

However, the must first come together 
and gel as a team. Newcomers, including all- 
Amcrican transfer Micah Owings and junior col- 
lege all-star Mall Riser, have put up big numbers 
in the past and must continue their success while 
wearing olive and blue. 

There arc also gaping holes to fill, especially 
in ihe bullpen where someone must replace star 
reliever Joey Chairon, now with the Toronto 
Blue Jays 

The Green Wave also must contend wiih a dif- 
ficult .schedule, including 1 1 games against lop- 
25 competition, eighl of those against perennial 
contenders ranked in the lop 10. 

Tulane will welcome No. 9 Arizona 
1^ Slate and No. 3 Cal State-Fullenon for 
three-game home stands early in die cam- 
paign. The Wave lost two of three at ASU 
last .season and lost both games lo CS-F in 
the NCAA super regional. 

The second-ranked LSU Tigers appear 
on the schedule twice, once in Baton Rouge 
and once at Zephyr Field. LSU beat die 
Green Wave iwo of three games last year 
and always provides stiff competition. 

Tulane must welcome new players 
quickly lo be able to handle the challenging 
schedule ahead. Fifty-six games test even 
Ihe best leams and this squad must be pre- 
pared for inevitable losses; cvcr>' team in 
Division 1 had at least twelve losses last sea- 
son: Tulane will not go 56-0. 

If die Green Wave can win most of the 
time, secure home-field in Uie playoffs and 
move on to Omaha, the season can be 
deemed a success. Now, with the No. 1 
ranking and the target on their chest. c\CTy 
team will come into Turchin Stadium look- 
ing to knock off the lop school in the coun- 

If Jones' squad can deal widi that, every 
inning of every game of every series, then 
Wave Nation will have a championship lo 
be celebrating in June, If not. then the curse 
of the No. 1 .seed will again ring true, 
haunting Tulane and the unfortunate bearer 
of the tide in years to come.

Options for on-campus housing 
diverse, though space limited 

Emily Hohenwarter 

Ii may be early in the semesicr, but now is the time 
that students must consider where to live next year. 
Many returning students choose to remain in on-cam- 
pus housing and enjoy the convenience, 

Although there arc many options for students mier- 
ested in off-campus housing and no deadline by which 
to sign a lease, applications for on-campus housing 
are available now and must be submitted Feb, 24 bv

The suite shared bathrooms in Irby and Phelps each 
have four sinks and two showers. 


Returning students have the option to apply 

mpus housing next year. First-year 

students will be able to leave Monroe and 

head places. Students starting out in 

freshman residences like Monroe and Butler 

vie to move onto upperclassman housing. 

Paterson, also on Bruff Quad, is a mixed-year doni i 
under the theme "substance free," which means cauli 
resident of Paterson pledges not to bring alcohol 
tobacco or any illegal substance into the building 
Paterson includes four-person suites with exterior 
hallways and doubles with community bathrooms 
and interior halls. It also includes laundry facilities. 
"I like the clean bathrooms and the sinks we have 
in our rooms," freshman Shola Cardoso said. "I also 
like the closeness of the inside; it's not just one long 
hallway, 1 don't like always having to check in, and 
sometimes, quiet hours aren't quiet. Bui I'm livmg 
here again next year. 

Mayer houses 248 students in two and four-per- 
son suites. It has interior hallways, kitchens, study 
and social lounges, balconies and laundry facilities. 
"I like Mayer. It's better than the freshman dorms. 
And sometimes, it floods," sophomore Greg Ver- 
landcr said. 

Willow houses 318 smdents in two. three and four- 
person suites comprised of single and double rooms. 
Willow also has kitchens, study and social lounges, 
balconies and laundry facilities. 

The Willow complex is also home to the Leader- 
ship Village, a selective community for motivated 
and mvolved Tulanians. Leadership Village can 
accommodate 60 students in single and double rooms. 
Smgle rooms share a bathroom with another single 
and are very spacious. Doubles have upstairs loft 
bedrooms and spiral staircases. Selection for lead- 
ership village is by separate application, which includes 
outlining a Leadership Village Action Plan, a model 
for how potential residents plan to become better 
leaders while living in the village, Core requirements 
for iivmg in the Leadership Village are: a 2.5 cumu- 
lative GPA, sophomore, junior, or senior status and 
a desire to become a belter student leader. Appli- 
cations are available online at the Housing and Res- 
idence Life website, hrl, 

Aron Residences are three, four and five bed- 
room, two bath apartments for rising juniors, seniors 
and graduate students. All Aron residents must have 
junior class standing or be at least 2 1 years old to 
live in the building. All apartments are fully fur- 

"It's a great alternative to living off campus 
bcciiuse you get all the autonomy of your own apart- 
ment with all the conveniences of living on cam- 
pus." junior Adriana Lude said. 

The rooms available arc traditional doubles, sin- 
j1i-.s and super singles, and most are suites. Rising 
L'liiors have first priority for Aron Residences, Ris- 
111 l; juniors have first priority for single rooms, fol- 
.('■,i.L'd by rising seniors. Rising sophomores have 
jirionty for doubles and suites. Class is defined by 
>cars at Tulanc, not by credits. 

Also available to married and graduate students 
IS Rosen House, The selection process for Rosen 
House is separate from the traditional rcturning- 
student application, and interested individuals should 
email roscn@tulane.cdu. 

All room selection is by a lottery system. Every- 
one who applies for housing wilt be randomly 
assigned times for housing selection, which will 
include when and where to meet to make selections. 
All selection limes will be In the first two weeks of 
March. If no housing options remain for those stu- 
dents with later assigned times, they can opt to be 
placed on a waiting list for the next available room. 
Some of the waitlisted students get housing, but 
there is no guarantee. 

Campaign to host special events on 
campus, across the country 

Tabitha Edqens 

Tulanc will officially launch the Promise 
and Distinction campaign in a two-day 
celebration March 16, kicking off what 
President Scott Cowen calls "the largest 
and most exciting tundraising initiative" 
in the school's 171-year history. Addi- 
tionally, it will be the largest higher edu- 
cation tundraising effort ever undertaken 
in Louisiana. 

The goal of the Initiative, liilly titled 
Promise and Distinction: The Campaign 
for Tulanc. is lo raise S700 million "to 
enhance the faculty, students, staff, pro- 
grana and facilities needed to make Tulanc 
. . . one of the most widely respected uni- 
versities in the world" according to a state- 
ment released by the university Oct. 24, 

The campaign receives donations from 
iilumni ,ind nonprofit ut^'ani/alions main- 

ly in the form of cash gifb and pledges, 
which allow donors to maximize their 
donation by spreading their contribution 
over a three to five-year period. 

"Promise and Distinction: The Cam- 
paign for Tulane targets the entire Tutane 
constituency including alumni, friends, 
parents, corporations and foundations and 
other organizations," Luann Dozier, vice 
president of institutional advancement. 
said. "Cuncntly. of our ovenll constituency 
groups, the majority offiinds received arc 
from alumni of Tulane University." 

The plan was conceived in 1 998, as a 
part of Cowen's 1 0-ycar straicgic plan. 
Since its Induction in 1999 the campaign 
has raised S45 1 .9 of the S700 million goal. 
Including the combined S60 million gift 
made by (Tulanc alumni? — meera) 
Netscape co-foundCT Jim Clarit and Yalioo! 
co-founder David Fllo, the largest single 
or combined gift ever endowed to the Uni- 
\cr.sity. "The .standard pniciicc for cam- 

paigns of this sort is to achieve approxi- 
mately half of the goal before announcing 
the campaign publicly." Strccker said. 

The Univcniity has implemented a mul- 
timedia approach lo altiaa potential donois, 
using TV and print ads. as well as the t^vo- 
day campaign launch. It has also called on 
a host of prominent alumni such as Filo. 
New York Yankees star Bobby Brown. 
"Wliilc You Were Out" host Evan Farmer 
and "Meet the Press" moderator Bill Mon- 
roe to publicize the campaign. 

The launch will feature a Presidential 
Concert performed by musicians of the 
Tulane Symphony Orchestra, "The Big 
Splash" party for students, faculty and staff 
on Gibson Quad, the Invitation-only "Hul- 
labaZoo" event at the Audubon Tea Room, 
and "An Evening ofDislinclion," a live, 
closed-circuit show broadcast via satellite 
featuring various aspects of the universi- 
ty. It will air at multiple venues across the 
country where the Tulanc alumni ptipula- 

tions arc greatest. 

Also to be unveiled during the launch 
is the "Promise and Distinction" song. 
which the University commissioned espe- 
cially for the campaign. Local songwriter 
Jep Epstein wrote the piece and also per- 
fornis the vocals and piano. Different ver- 
sions of the song, some including vocals, 
some instrumental, will be played during 
all of the launch events as well as in TV 
commercials and in a scries of short pro- 
motional movies,

island plan 

Board OKs further study 
of project cost 

Frank Donze 

Tima-Piuiyiinc slujfwnlcr 

The questions far outnumbered the answers Tues- 
day as the Orieans Levee Board launched a re-exami- 
nalion of a long-dormant proposal to build a four-mile, 
manmade recreational island in Lake Pontchartiain east 
of Lakefront Airport. 

But despite a long list of unknowns, the state board 
authorized a consultant to prepare a cost estimate for a 
further study that would update the project's estimat- 
ed price tag — pegged at more than S200 million In 
1 99 1 — and provide first-lime parameters for how much 
acreage might be available for commercial develop- 
ment, and what the going rate would be. 

If as expected, the board finds the expense accept- 
able at its Feb. 16 meeting. Burk-Klcinpeler Inc.. which 
prepared the earlier research, would return with the new 
data about 90 days later. 

The ambitious project, which also calls for building 
artificial wetlands along the shoreline to battle pollu- 
tion, was hatched in 1 989 under former Gov. Buddy 

Levee Board appointees of Gov. Edwin Edwards 
moved the idea forward in the early 1990s, boosting 
the investment In state and agency dollars to nearly S3 
million, the plan was shelved a decade ago by Gov. 
Mike Foster's administration after it became clear that 
money was unavailable. 

The board hasn'Ispent a penny on the project in 
seven years. 

The move to revisit the proposal is being led by 
Eugene Green, one of five new commissioners named 
to oversee the agency last fall by Gov, Kathleen Blan- 

Green, the former director of economic develop- 
ment at City Hall, has said the plan has too many poten- 
tial benefits for the economy and the environment lo 

Furthermore, Green said during a meeting of the 
board's Planning. Engineering and Construction Com- 
mittee, the so-called East Beach project finally would 
provide a recreational oasis along the eastern end of the 
lake to match die vast acres of green space that ilic board 
created along the western side In the 1930s. 

"What we did on the western shore, we can do on 
the eastern shore," he said, "ft could look a lot better. 
It should look a lot better." 

Unlike the West End of the New Orleans lakefront, 
which is easily accessible via Lakcshorc Drive and fea- 
tures a stepped sea wall, the cast end is walled off Irom 
the lake by a levee topped by railroad tracks, 

While federal aid may be available for the environ- 
mental aspect of the project. Green said, private Invest- 
ment would have to handle the lion's share of the cosLs. 
But aflcrthc meeting he said he believes commercial 
interests, possibly a large hotel chain, will step up once 
plans begin lo lake shape. 

City Councilwoman Cynthia Wlllard-Lcwls, one of 
City Hall's two representatives on the board, advised 
her colleagues lo be cautious and called on Burk-KJeln- 
pcler to offer insight on how the project could be built 
in phases. 

"We need lo sec what we can get our hands around," 
she said. "What is a practical, implemcniabic strategy 
and not something pie in the sky."

Louisville tops Green Wave 


in cjmc off the bench to grab fiv 
c points against Louisvillo. 


The Green Wave became 
Louisville's latest victim Saturday as 
Ihe Cardinals continue to tear through 
Conference USA. 

In its previous six games. No. 12 
Louisville defeated opponents by an 
average of 32.3 points per game and 
the Cardinals demonstrated the same 
type of domination against Tulane (8- 
II. 2-6 C-USA). 

Louisville had six players scoring 
in double digits, as the Green Wave 
was trounced 105-69. 

Louisville opened the game hot, as 
Taquan Dean buried four of his first 
five three-point attempts. The 
Cardinals used a suffocating press to 
extend iheir early lead and seize full 
i.ontrol of the contest midway through 
!liL- first half. 

The pressure defense wreaked 
li.ivoc on Tulane throughout the 
ime, foreing 15 first-half turnovers. 
including six by freshman Taylor 
Kui:hestic. The Cardinals relieved the 
pressure after it built an insurmount- 
able lead, but Tulane still finished 
with 26 turnovers. 

With a 50-29 halftimc lead, the 
Cardinals offensive clinic continued 
in the second half. Despite shooting 
just 41.S percent from the field, 
Louisville drained nine second half 
ihrce-poiniers and 14 overall. 

"They were explosive offensively 
and they are a very good three-point 
shooting team," Head Coach Shawn 

Finney said. 'They capitalize on your 
mistakes. We didn't slow down and 
play with poise and make the easy 
plays. As a coach you have to consid- 
er that it' s one game and we have a lol 
more ahead of us; we have lo put it 
behind us and look ahead." 

Ellis Myles and Juan Palaeios each 
recorded double-doubles and junior 
Francisco Garcia scored 21 points for 
Ihc Cardinals. 

Injury and illness to the Green 
Wave backcourt did not help matters 
heading into ihe coniest. Senior 
Marcus Kinzer is still suffering from a 
severe ankle sprain, an injury he sus- 
tained against UAB two weeks ago, 
He battled through the pain during 20 
minutes of action, but scored only two 

One of tlie lone bright spots of the 
game for Tulane was the play from 
freshman forward Donnic Slith. Slith 
scored a career-high 19 points to lead 
Tulane and he set a school record by 
going 14-for-14 from the free throw 

"Donnie definitely gave his best 
effort, not only offensively, but defen- 
sively," Finney said. "He was really, 
really aggressive tonight. If we can get 
that effort out of him nighi-in and 
night-out, he will be a very good play- 
er for us." 

Tulane's next game is on the road 
against USF tomorrow night. The 
Green Wave will return home 
Wednesday to host Southern Miss 
where it looks to avenge its onc-poini 
loss in Hattiesburg. Jan. 22.

A new breed 
of surfers 

Megan HolstJne 


Many people have a classic idea 
of a typical surfer blond, buff. i;ui, 
Califomian and male. Although 
men firsi popularized the sport of 
surfing, women have practiced it 
since the early 1920s. 

The stereotypical surfer is com- 
monly referred to as a dude, Tliis 
simple word itself has a male con- 
notation. Pan of overcoming the 
male surfer prejudice is to open 
.America's eyes to the other genre 
of surfers; women, 

Unfortunately, the rising num- 
ber of women surfers is often for- 
gotten or ignored. When talking 
about surfing giant waves such as 
Mavericks (near Half Moon Bay, 
Calif), people almost automatical- 
ly assume that only men are par^c- 
ipating. However, today's women 
surfers are just as competitive and 
skillful as many male surfers. 

When asked to imagine a 
famous surfer, one of the first 
names that may come to mind is 
Kelly Slater. Aidiough a possibly 
feminine name. Slater is a man. 
Rarely would a name such as Lisa 
Andersen come up as a response. 

Andersen is a fully capable surfer 
from die United States who could 
compete against men any day. 

This prejudice is also exhibited 
in many surfing magazines loday. 
In a typical surfing magazine, the 
pages arc full of male action shots 
interspaced solely with women in 
diong bi kirns advertising certain 

Women phologr^iphers such as 
Elizabeth Pepin are trying to 
expand the public's view with 
intense action shots of women 
surfers. These shots are Just as 
good as the shois in many surfing 
magazines, but they don't make il 
inlo the magazines, The prejudice 
against women surfers is starting to 
lum around but still has a long way 

A positive push in female surf- 
ing came from the movie "Blue 
Crush," This movie showed 
women can surf just as well and are 
jusi as competitive as men, 
Unfonunately, the mo\'ie docs not 
necessarily appeal to bodi genders. 

And the mo%'ic's appeal to men 
isn't exactly about surfing.

Room on seventh floor of Butler up in flames 

Fire sets off sprinklers, students temporarily relocated 

Jaclyn Rosenson 

A compuier was ihe source of a 
fire in room 704 of Butler Hall Fri- 
day, The compuier belonged to School 
of Engineering freshman Elaine 
Horn, who was nol in her room when 
the fire occurcd. 

"My roommale was silting al her 
compuier. she heard a pop from my 
compuier and it started billowing 
black smoke so she unplugged the 
computer, got the resident advisor 
and she came back and as she and 
the RA were standing at the door 
watching the computer, it burst into 
flames. The flames got on the chair 
and they shut the door and told the 
person at Ihe front desk to pull the 
fire alarm to get everyone out of the 
building," Horn said. 

Thesprinklersonly went off in 
Ihe room where the fire started and 
the fire was out before the New Orieans 
Fire Department arrived. However, 
one resident said the spnnklers stayed 
on for close to 20 minutes, causing 
some flooding on the floor. 

"I came back shortly after the fire 
alami was pulled down and m\' room- 
mate told me that my computer 
exploded, and I didn'l believe her at 
first because, you know, computers 
don't really explode and ihe fire 
alarm has gone off so many times 
this semester already thai I thought 
someone was just joking around," 
Horn said. 

Then I went around to the side of 
the building and saw that the water 
was pouring oul of our room and 
everyone was standing and pointing 
al it and 1 was like, oh my god. my 
compuier exploded." 

It was "so unbelievable ... no 
one's computer jusi blows up on 
them," Horn said. "Luckily [my 
roommate] was there to unplug the 
computer, the firefighter said that 

she prevented a lot of problems by 
unplugging the computer." 

Horn said the only items dam- 
aged by the fire were the desk chair 
with a couple of jackets on it, a cor- 
ner ofher bed and "a blanket I have 
had since I was t^vo years old, that 
was the most depressing part." 

The standing water, however, 
damaged textbooks, notes, clothing 
and other items in Horn's room and 
others on Ihe floor. 

After the immediate threat was 
over, the residents from the seventh 
floor gathered in the Doris lounge to 
learn about the plan for temporary 
relocation. The residents were lold 
they could stay in New Doris for the 
weekend and their rooms would be 
fixed as quickly as possible. 

According to Ally Helperin, a 
Newcomb College freshman living 
on Ihe seventh floor of Butler, "right 
after it happened. Erica, the area 
director, ordered pizza for everyone 
cause we were oul of Butler and then 
on Sunday night she ordered Semoli- 
na's for us. She was like I'm really 
Sony, she was trying her best. I mean 
they did everything they were sup- 
posed to do. Thej' handled it the best 
they could in the siluation; they did 
a great job." 

Horn and her roommate are 
preparing lo move into a temporary 
super single in Aron Residences. 
They have been told it will only be 
through next week, Horn said she 
hopes that is the case because she 
said the room "was made for one 
person ... it is not ... for rwo girls 
sharing one small closet." 

Dan Nadler, associate vice pres- 
ident for student affairs, called the 
fire a "very unfortunate accident." 

Nadler was notified of the inci- 
dent by TUPD once the fire alarm 
went off and his first concern was 
the safety and security of the stu- 
dents. "We are most proud of the 

fact that ever>lliing that should ha\ e 
happened, did ... fire alarm, spnn- 
klers, everything that could have 
been done was. and in a timely man- 
ner," Nadler said. 

The response by the New Orleans 
Fire Department was normal for a 
high rise like Butler. Nadler said he 
was pleased with how well every- 
one worked together lo make sure 
e\'erything was done lo keep the stu- 
dents safe and allow access for the 
firefighters. He commented that one 
of the hardest parts was dealing with 

"Our goal was to get them back 
to their room and back to the com- 
munity as soon as possible," Nadler 

He also mentioned that ihere will 
be no action taken against the stu- 
dent as the incident is considered an 
accident. He said there was no indi- 
cation someone did something inten- 
tional or took any undue risk. It is 
normal procedure of Tulane and 
NOFD to investigate any fire, acconi- 
ing lo Nadler. 

Nadler's main concern now is 
"getting things cleaned up. making 
sure everyone is okay." He said "the 
response [was] incredibly smooth 
. . . Erica was phenomenal and the 
RAs were incredible." 

Nadler also said that each rc>.i 
dent who experienced property dam- 
age as a result of Ihe fire or flooding 
was given a Tulane properly loss 
form to fill oul. which is then turned 
into risk management where the mai- 
ler of compensation will be deter- 
mined. Both Horn and Nadler said 
they do nol know who will pay for 
the items lost or damaged. 

Nadler said, 'Ve are trying to dn 
everything we can for those students 
who were impacted ... we are tr>'- 
ing lo gel them back to lull speed so

The scAice opened with remarks 
by Lawrence Pononaff, dean of Tulane 
Law School, who taught Zukowski 
last semester. 

"I have vivid memories of Emily 

in class ... she was an excited, 
engaged, and interested student." 
Ponoroff offered his condolences to 
Emily's father and younger sister, 
who were present at the service and 
recently suffered die loss of their wife 
and mother as well. 

Vice President for Student Affairs 
Cynthia Cherrey also delivered 
remarks; "Our journey through life

year taw student, began the reflec- 
tions with memories of being able lo 
lalk to Zukowski about anything.

ter, and we wake up and feel like we 
lost someone wc knew for years. I'm 
grateful I knew her for one semes- 

Geoff Lund, another law student, 
also spoke, "Emily was a terrific per- 
son; everybody liked her." he said. 
"It makes me sad to know I won't 
make new memories with Emily, but 
I'll focus on the memories we have. 
I miss Emily and more than anything 
wish to see her again. But we have 
to step back and realize what we still 
have, Emily will continue to live 
when we are with the people we ha\'e 

Fellow law student Andrew Pick- 
ett was the last to speak. "She touched 

so many people in such a short amount 
of time ... so many people had such 
memories of time spent in her pres- 
ence. That is the most fitting testa- 
ment ofher life," he said. Pickett also 
said that Zukowski will be remem- 
bered best for her "fearless optimism 
and unbridled enthusiasm," 

"We will find it's not that we'll

In the days Icudin^ tip to the 
Green Wuve'n home opener ui 
Turchin Stadium against 
MiiiiiOiiri Stale, there was a buzz 
around campus. 

The main question around 
Tulane Friday was, "Arc you 
going to ilic game tonight?" 

Whoa. What's this stunning 
develop men I'.' People actually 
talking about going to a Tulane

Sure enough, the stadium was 
packed last Friday night, There 
v^as actually a line lo get tickets. [ 
arrived at the scheduled start time 
of 6:30 and couldn't even find a 
decent seat (definitely a first for 
any Tulane game I've been to). 

Granted, it was opening night. 
That will likely be one of the 
biggest crowds all year for a

1 mean, it's sort of fun to wulch 
Louisville wreck us for one half in 
either spon, because you get to sec

great they arc, but that gets old, 

Tulane students may not care 
about sports as much us students ui

we've never had the chance to

Rock Bottom: How

New Orleans enters all-star break 
with just 11 wins 

the team's inability to grow into 
his complicated offense resulted in 
an NBA-low 87.8 points per game 
through the first 53 games. 

Many hailed the addition of 
Scott, who guided New Jersey to 
Eastern Conference champi- 
onships in 2(X)2 and 2003, as a 
milestone hiring for the Hornets. 

When Scott was given the 
reigns in New Jersey, the leam was 
coming off a 3 1 -5 1 season and had 
made the playoffs just once in Uie 
previous si.t seasons. Two years 
after his hiring, Scott hud New 
Jersey in the NBA Finals for the 
fir^t time in franchise history . 

This, along with the appeal of a 
former NB.^ player with three 
championship rings, led the 
Hornets lo believe that Scott could 
revitalize the team. 

One of the immediate obstacles 
for Scoti was gelling players to 
overcome Ihe comple.^ily of hi? 
half-coun motion offense. 

The only player who under- 
stood Scott's gome plan from the 
start was Rodney Rogers, who

The Buffalo Bills announced 

Wednesday they will release 12-

The move will allow Bledsoe to 
pursue a job with a new team, but 
more importantly for Buffalo, it 
allows the Bills to move on widi 
former Green Wave standout J.P,

"Our starting quanerback next

Coach Mike Mutarkey said. 
"[Losman] has special skills that

Losman missed most of last

Paint gives schools fresh start

Volunteers from local univer-

with paint as they gave four New 
Orleans schools a fresh look Sm- 
urday, Tulane University helped 
sponsor the annual Paint Rally dui 
called upon nearly 500 volunteers. 

Joseph S- Clark Senior High 
School, John F, Kennedy Senior 
High School. John McDonogh 
Senior High School and Booker T 
Washington Senior High School 
each received newly painted wal!>

The schools had been in need 
ofminorrepairs foryears, "Some 
of the buildings are in such disre- 
pair, they are beyond needing just 
painting," Hamilion Simons-Jone^, 
director of Communiiy Ser\'ices 
Coordinalion at Tulane, said. In 
response lo these poor conditions, 
local students and alumni ha\ e 
donated their efforts lo secure a 
healthy learning environment for 
public school smdenis since 1998. 

The labor, supplies and food are 
all donated from New Orleans uni- 
versities, businesses and restau- 
rants. "It is inspiring to see so many 
people come out to participate," 
Simons-Jones said, "It js always a 
lot of fiin. And great things really 
emerge from these projects, beyond 
just painl on the walls."

Slow e-mail, virus 
affecting students

Relief may be on the way for Tulane e-mail 
users beleaguered by persistent slowdowns and 
network stoppages, according to university offi- 
cials. At the time of print. Technology Services 
had not yet released an estimate of when the prob- 
lem would be fully resolved. 

All Uptown students received an e-mail Wednes- 
day with the subject "E-mail Slowness," in which 
Dr. John Lawson, vice president for information 
technology and chief information officer, stated 
thatTSha5"isolatedat least one part of the prob- 
lem," and that they "understand the negative impact 
. . . and [they] have taken steps to add extra, exter- 
nal resources to help [them] remedy this problem," 

TS is temporally disabling IMAP access from 
off-campus internet networks due to evidence thai 
there is a denial of service. Denial of service is a 
type of system attack caused by a virus. 

The viruses suspected by TS and Director of 
End User Support Adam Krob are variants of the 
Mydoom virus which originated last year. There 

are 57 known variants of Ihis virus. "It's a typical 
practice of virus writers lo adapt somebody else's 
code,panicularlyifh is a very successful virus ... 
which Mydoom was," ICrob said. 

Virus variants commonly change the text of the 
e-mail, which affected Tulane because the e-mail 
was signed " technical support team." 
The most recent variants included a password to 
download the attachment and are therefore noi rec- 
ognized by virus scans. 

Students who believed the e-mail was a legiti- 
mate message from TS felt compelled to follow 
the instructions of the message and unknowingly 
opened the file containing 'Jie virus on their com-

AASU hosts 
cultural events 

Kate Dearing 


The Asian American Students United held 
its annual Asian American Awareness Week, 
a scries of social events, last week. 

Shuttles provided by AASU took partici- 
pants to Hoi Cho. a carnival to celebrate the 
Viclnamcsc Lunar New Year known as Tct, 
Feb. 12 lo kick off AAA week. The huge cel- 
ebration full of ethnic foods, arts, crafls and 
carnival games was held at a local Vietnamese 

Olhcr events included a game night Feb. 
1 3 where mcmbcrri played board games like 
Mahjong and the popular Dance Dance Rev- 
olution. An "Asian Valentine's Day" was held 
on the night of Feb. 14 where singles went 
through a round ofspccd dating and enjoyed 
plenty of free food. 

The Food Fesl, the most popular event of 
the week, was held in the Boggs lounge Feb. 1 5. 
The event was free to members and S5 for 
nonmembtTs, Local rcsiauranis .such as Miki- 
moto, China Orchid. Basil Leaf and Hana. 
among others, donated food for the event. 

The highlight of the week was a Kung Fu 

Performance and a speech by recording artist 
and former Playboy model Kaila Yu held in 
McAlister auditorium. Yu was (lown in from 
her home in Los Angeles to speak at ihc event 
where she discussed her experiences as an Asian 
American in the entertainment industry, San- 
wan, an Asian Indie band, also performed. 

The week closed with a viewing of Yimou 
Zhang's newest film, "House of Flying Dag- 
gers." The viewing, free lo the public, look 
place in Jones Hall Feb. 1 7. 

The 200 member strong organization has 
nothing else planned for the semester, but after 
attending the East Coast Asian American Stu- 
dent Union Conference in Philadelphia last 
weekend, the club hopes lo bring some of the 
speakers highlighted ai Ihc conference lo cam- 
pus in order lo create more awareness of the 
Asian community. 

"Though we've done AAA week over the 
years, this one was the most advertised and 
had the biggest events." AASU Social Vice 
President Stephanie Choy said, "but the pur- 
pose of AAA week has always been lo raise 
awareness of the Asian communiiy at Tulane. 
to unify minorities on campus, and to bring 
people together through our culture," 

TST V back on the air soon 

Bryan Cole 

iaimr Haffu'riter 

For the first lime since the University Cen- 
ter closed in December 2003, Tulane Stu- 
dent Television will broadcast across cam- 
pus beginning in March. 

"1 am excited by the prospect of TSTV 
coming back and am very happy lo lend a 
hand to make that hap- 
pen," Chief Engineer 
Julian Suggs said. 

The station had start- 
ed shrinking before the 
mo\e and by its last semes- 
ter, TSTV mainly served 
as a venue for showing 

"Interest in the station had been waning 
somewhat, and the prospect of moving all 
that equipment ... did not help member rclen- 
lion." Media Board Chair Ked Dixon said, 

When student organizations were moved 
out of the University Center, the station's 
wiring was removed and the station went off 
the uir. Since TSTV no longer had anyone 
who knew how to rewire its equipment, the 
station stayed dormant. 

"The station was not dismantled, packed 
and moved properly, which has made it very 

difficult lo return to broadcasting in die new 
location," Buggssaid, 

Still, some student interest remained. 
Before the end of the spring semester in 2004, 
the preliminary steps were taken to revive 
TSTV, The organization submitted a budget 
to the Undergraduate Student Government 
and aimed to resume operations during the 


However, the station still could not rewire 
its equipment, which had since been moved 
to Monk Simons with the rest of the Tulane 
student media, 

"We had to hire a professional [to rewire 
the equipment]." Dixon said. "That hurt its 
ability to draw people in at the beginning of 
the school year," 

Membership continued increasing, how- 
ever, and students involved with TSTV recent- 
ly chose Greg Starr, Tulane College junior, 
to be the station's general manager once 

broadcasts resume. 

"When I got an e-mail this semester indi- 
cating that the station was restarting, I knew 
I could make things happen and bring TSTV 
back," Starr said. "I feel very positive and 
hopeful about its revival." 

With few members and limited space in 
Monk Simons, Slarr knows TSTV must slart 
slowly but still is optimistic for the future. 
"I'd like to see the 
station back on the air 
for the end of Febniao'. 
but this is enlircly 
dependant on our abil- 
ity lo get the broad- 
casting equipment wired 
and gel our cable link- 
up with [Tulane Uni- 
versity Cable Access Network ]," he said. 
"We've already got several promising show 
ideas for when we're ready lo start produc- 

Starr also plans to teach some of the 
younger members how the station's equip- 
ment works so it can be reassembled more 
effectively when the station moves into its 
new offices in the completed University 
Center in 2006,

Looking for n Conference USA loumu- 
mcnl bcnh, the Green Wave knew it 
would nectl lo sicp up us play in order lo 
slcal a game on the road and pull off un 
upset lit home. 

However, woeful shooting und poor 
rebounding huunied the team all week- 
end, resulting in a 55-41 road loss to 
Cincinnati and a 70-5 1 loss to 
Louisville at home. Despite senior for- 
ward Lukelhia Hampton becoming only 
the I7lh player in school history to 
score 1.000 points, the Green Wave still 
shot well under 35 percent for the 
weekend while being out-rebounded 

The losses leave Tulane on the outside 
looking in for the I2lh and final tourna- 
ment spot. The current No. 12 seed. 
Southern Miss (3-11), visits Fogelman 
Arena in the season finale tomorrow to 
determine who will participote in this 
year's loumameni. No team under Head 
Coach Lisa Stockton has missed out on 
the C-USA tournament. 

At Cincinnati, although D'Aundra 
Henry scored 16 points and Hampton 
added 15, the Green Wave struggled with 
its outside shooting, going O-for-12 from 
the three-point line and shooting 34 per- 
cent from the floor. 

"We just couldn't buy a shot," 
Stockton said. "We had good looks, but 
we just rushed [our shots]." 

The BearcaLs controlled the game from 
Stan to finish, jumping out to a 29-16 first- 
half lead. All 16 of the Green Wave points 
came from inside the paint, while the 
Bearcats scored 15 points on outside 
jumpers alone.

two more solid performances against

with a 4-3 victor)' over Tulsa Sunday, The 
wins mark the Green Wave's second 
straight victory against both the 
Seminolcs, currently ranked 33rd. and the 
No. 61 Golden Hurricanes. 

After the successful weekend, the 
Green Wave improves its record to 5-4 on 
ihc season and maintains the No. IS rank- 

Tulane started the weekend strong 
against FSU, sweeping the doubles 
matches. Maria and Darya Ivanov, Julie 
Smekodub and Jenny Kuehn. and 
Dorottya Magas and Anna Saaibi defeated 
the three FSU duos 8-6, 9-8 and 8-4, 

The doubles point proved essential as 
the singles score ended in a 3-3 tic. The 
team lost the No. I. No. 5 and No. 6 sin- 
gles spots. 

After falling to Roxannc Clark in the 
first SCI, Darj'a Ivanov persisted in the 
second set to win 6-2. Ivanov clinched the 
win in a nail-biting, third-set tiebreaker. 
Magas followed with another impressive 
performance in the No. 4 single's spot, 
defeating FSU's Miranda Foley. 6-2, 6-4. 

Kuehn and Magas handled Pereira and 
Dclport 8-5 at No, 2 doubles, but Tulane 
ended doubles play one point behind after 
losing both the No. 1 and No. 3 matches. 

The Green Wave handled the resulting 
pressure in singles play. The team took 
two of the first four singles victories with 
Koehn's and Magas" wins over Pereira 
and Greenly, 

Ana Saaibi then put the team ahead 
with a 6-7, 6-3, 6-4 win of Santi Delport. 
Freshman Gracie Glassmeyer sealed the 
win with her 2-6, 7-6, 6-4 defeat over 
Agosiina Santoro.

UNLV Tournament. 


Top-ranked Green Wave dominates in sweep of No. II Arizona St. 

Catcher Matt Barkel follot 

Ben Elsenberg 

Maintaining the No. I ranking in the 
nation is a heavy burden, but through its 
first seven games, the Green Wave 
appears up to the task. The team is off to a 
7-0 Stan including a three-game sweep of 
No. 1 1 Arizona State last weekend. 

Not only has the team won all seven of 
its games, it has done so in a dominating 
fashion. Tulane scored at leost six runs in 
six of those gomes and has not allowed the 
opposition more than three runs in any 

The sweep of Arizona State was partic- 
ularly impressive because the Sun Devils 
ore a national college baseball power- 
house. The Green Wave won Friday's 
game 8-2, Saturday's game 7-2 and took 
the series finale 9-3. 

"With all the media hype and everyone 
letting us know that we're No. 1 in the 
country, it was nice to be able to prove it 
to ourselves in Uiis series." catcher Scott 
Madden said. "It's a confidence boost that 
lets us know wc con play with the best of 

The second largest crowd in the history 
of Turchin Stadium, 3,784, witnessed the 
Green Wave set the tone for the scries in 
the first inning Friday. Centerfielder 

Nathan Southard led off the game with a 
home run, and the Green Wave tacked on 
two more runs in the inning. 

That was all Uie run support junior 
Brian Bogusevic would need. He struck 
out six in six innings of work to improve 
to 2-0 on the season. Billy Mohl then col- 
lected his first save of the season with 
three innings of relief 

Micah Owings was the story Saturday 
afternoon at Zephyr Field in front of a 
crowd of 7.435. The Georgia Tech transfer 
lived up to his reputation as one of the top 
two-way athletes in college baseball as he 
pitched eight innings and gave up just two 

After allowing two runs in the Uiird 
inning, Owings faced just 16 hitters over 
his final five innings. He also broke a 2-2 
tie in the sixth inning with a bases-loaded 
single and reached base in all four plate 

"They had to deal with the crowds at 
our home, which were great." Head Coach 
Rick Jones said. "The crowd really made a 
difference, particularly at Zephyr Field." 

Senior J,R. Crowell went five innings 
and allowed three runs Sunday to improve 
to 2-0 as the Green Wave offense once 
again did its pan. The gome was out of 
reach by the fifth inning after outfielder 
Matt Barkett hit a grand slam in the third. 

Tulane followed up with a two-run 
fourth inning in which Brad Emaus and 
Southard each had RBI singles. 

Green Wave pitching did an exception- 
al job throughout the series in shutting 
down the Sun Devils' Travis Buck and 
Jeff Larish, two of the most feared hitters 
in college baseball. The pair had just six 
hits in 23 combined at bats (.261) with one 

"Bogusevic and Owings were just able 
to overpower them by pounding tJic strike 
zone with low fastballs, and Crowell did a 
good job of throwing inside," Jones said. 
"Those three arc elite pitchers and os 
usual, good pitching beat good hitting." 

The Sun Devils had not been swept 
since 2002 when ihey were on the road at 
Florida State. 

"We're playing really well as a team 
right now." sophomore infielder Mark 
Hamilton said. "We've been able to get 
good pitching and timely hitting, and 
that's what baseball is all about." 

Today the Green Wove is scheduled to 
open a three-game series at Pepperdine (4 
p.m., Malibu, Calif), though Peppcrdinc's 
game Wednesday was cancelled due to the 
torrential downpours in Southern 
California- The Waves, the 1992 national 
champions, are 5-4 this year and won two 
out of three at Houston over the weekend.

Plain and simple. Tulane has endured 
another long season from its men's bas- 
ketball team. 

The squad enters the final week of the 
regular season attempting to secure the 
last spot in the Conference USA tourna- 
ment, the some No. 12 seed that it has held 
for three of the past four years. Unless a 
miracle occurs, there will be no postsea- 
son for the Green Wave past the confer- 
ence tourney, for the fifth straight season, 
the entirety of the Shawn Finney era. 

This squad has been ineffective in con- 
ference play, with all three wins coming 
by three points or less. Tulane has been 
even less successful on the road, silling at 
2-10 when forced to leave the cozy con- 
fines of Fogelman Arena. 

For this team to ever succeed, it must 
be able lo win games on the road, some- 
thing they haven't been able to do much 
of since Finney took the helm, compiling 
a 12-55 recoixl since he took over five 
years ago. 

The biggest difference for the Green 
Wave between this season and last is the 
lack of an inside game with big men who 
can shoot and rebound effectively. 


Men's basketball loses two home 
games by combined 33 points

After another one-week 
break following the loss at 
Memphis, the Tulane men's 
basketball team wos swept on 
its latest home stand, includ- 
ing a 19-poinl loss at home to 
No, 23 Charlotte and a cru- 
ciol defeat to TCU. 

The two losses leave the 
Green Wave (9-15, 3-10 C- 
USA) in 13th place in C- 
US A and in jeopardy of miss- 
ing the C-USA tournament. 

After Charlotte scored the 
first six points Saturday, the 
Green Wave went on a 12-4 
run to grab a 12-10 lead with 
14 minutes 22 seconds left in 
the first half The Bobcats 
forced several Green Wave 
turnovers and used a lethal 
inside-outside attack to seize 
full control of the game by 
halfiime. Charlotte scored 21 
points off 14 first-half 
turnovers and had 14 second- 
chance points. 

"We played well the first 
seven minutes, but it stoned 
to slip away piece by piece," 
Quincy Davis said. 
"Rebounding hun us because 
it led to second-chance 
points. After that, it's very 
difficult to come back from a 
double-digit lead." 

The Bobcats' Eddie 
Basden and Curtis Whithers 
combined for 26 points and 

14 rebounds in the first half 
alone, while Brendan Ptavich 
connected on 4-of-7 three- 
pointers to take a 49-27 half- 
time lead. 

However, the Green Wave 
continued lo fight, managing 
to outscore Charlotte by three 
points in the second half The 
solid second half was not 
nearly enough, though, to 
overcome the 22-poinl half- 
time deficit and the Green 
Wave ultimately fell 86-67. 

Davis led the team with 14 
points and seven rebounds 
while freshman Taylor 
Rochestie added 12 points 
and five assists. 

After the blowout, the 
Green Wave returned home 
to face seventh-place TCU. 
After trailing by 12 with less 
than eight minutes left in the 
game, the Green Wave

Presidential runoff 
results nullified 

Candidates will campaign 
again starting today 


n:u:'! iCCllO'l editor 

The Eleciion Appeals Coun of 
the Associated Student Body threw 
out the results of Tuesday's Under- 
graduate Student Go\'emnicnl pres- 
idential runoff between Caroline 
Nabors and Peter Young at a meet- 
ing yesterday afternoon. 

The EAC ruled that the Awards 
and Elections Commiliee of USG 
must reconduct the ninolTMarch 9. 
The EAC convened al 3:20 p,m. yes- 
terday after Nabors appealed the 
runoff results. 

The EAC decided to nullify the 
results of Tuesday's runoff because 
neither candidate received 50 percent 
of the \ote plus one as is required by 
AEC bylaws of the USG constitutioa 

"Given the number of votes 
received (627). a candidate must ha\e 
received 3 14,5 (i.e. 3 1 5) votes in 
order to be elected," the EAC said 
in an official posting of its decision. 

When polls for ihe USG presi- 
dential runoff closed at 10 p.m. Tues- 
day, there was a one-\'ole difference 
between candidates Nabors and 
Young. Nabore. a Newcomb College 
junior and USG parliamentarian, 
received 3 1 4 voles for 50. 1 percent 
of die vote and Young, a sophomore 
and Tulane College whip, received 
3 1 3 votes for 49,9 percent. 

However, Young was posted as 
the official winner of the runoff at 
10:15 p.m. Tuesday after the Awards 
and Elections Committee deducted 
.5 perccnl from Nabors for an elec- 
tions infraction. The final results 
posted Tuesday for the runoff had 
Young with 49,9 percent of the vote 
and Nabors with 49.6 percent. 

The reason for Nabors'. 5 percent 
infraction was because of an e-mail 
sent out to the listserv of Green Wave 
Ambassadors. GWA members had 
received an e-mail through the orga- 

nization's listscr\' 
encouraging them 
10 vote for Nabors. 
"This is ^11 
infraction in oni

Katie Hal'k-v 
executive vell 
president of USG 
and AEC chair, 
said, "[One is] 
sending the e-mail 
to the listserv with- 
out getting the 
endorsement of 
the entire execu- 
tive board of that 
which [Nabors] 
didn't ha\'e. [Two 
is] sending the e- 
mail to recipients 
who don't per- 
sonally know the 
[sender]." Halley 
said at least four 
different students 
and members of 
GWA contacted 
USG with com- 
plaints about the e-mail. The e-mail 
to GWA was not sent out by Nabors, 
but by her friend Jessica Leavitt, a 
Newcomb College senior, 

Halley said she informed Nabors 
al 6:45 p.m. Tuesday about the infrac- 
tion hearing, which took place at 
10:05 p.m. immediately after the 
polls closed. Nabors did not attend 
the hearing. 

There will be another runoff election between USG 
presidential candidates Caroline Nabors (top) and 
Peter Young (bottom) March 9.

Professors run 
marathon for 
Bucket Brigade 

Activists raise money, awareness for 
Louisiana environmental campaign 


Three professors of the sociolo- 
gy department participated in (he 
annual Mardi Gras Marathon as a 
way to raise funds and awareness 
among Tulane students for Louisiana 
Bucket Brigade, a nonprofit grass- 
roots environmental health and jus- 
tice organization. 

Scott Frickei, professor in soci- 
ologv' Jocelyn Vitema, professor in 
the Latin American studies and soci- 
ologv' depanmem and Mimi Schip- 
pers, professor in women's studies 
and sociology, all solicited mone- 
tary pledges from their friends and 
families to support them in their 
marathon run. Proceeds support the 
bucket brigades, 

Frickei, Viterna and Schippcrs 
trained extensively for the past 1 6 
weeks for the 26-3-mile run which 
took place Sunday; however, the cen- 
tral goal of their marathon uin is to 
raise awareness for the bucket brigade. 

■"The real important thing is to 
help raise awareness among snidents 
about what is going on dovvn here in 
terms of environmental health and 
die hazards and risks that low income 
people are faced with," Frickei said. 
"Because they are sort of invisible 
to us. unless we talk about it and raise 
awareness nobody will know and 
nothing will change." 

The Louisiana Bucket Brigade 
supports fence line conununities who 
border petrochemical production 
facilities to organize and train their 
members to test for high levels of 
chemical agents in the air due to their 

proximity to the petrochemical facil- 
ities. These facilities, owned by huge, 
multinational companies such as 
Exxon-Mobile and Shell, came into 
Louisiana around the 1940s and "SOs, 
sometimes displacing communities 
that traced their ancestry back into 
the slavery era. 

"[The bucket brigade] targets very 
specific communities, communities 
that are what we call fenceline com- 
munities. Those people who literal- 
ly live, their backyards border oil 
refineries and petrochemical com- 
panies," Frickei said. "There is some- 
where around 160 of these plants 
along about lOO-mile stretch of the 
Mississippi, There is a vast concen- 
tration of this kind of industry around 
New Orleans," 

If the members of a neighboring 
community smell a bad odor or just 
want to test the air, they can use a 
"bucket" which samples the air, 

"The idea of ihc bucket brigade 
is a rather simple but elegant piece 
of technology. It is a bucket with a 
bag inside and a pump . . , They go 
out with their bucket and suck the 
air outside into the bucket, sea! it up 
in a plastic bag, and send it off to a 
lab in California for testing. The lab 
will provide the results that they 
have," Vitema said. 

If the test results come back show- 
ing a violation of air-quality stan- 
dards under the Clean Air Act, it 
gives the fenceline communities a 
legal way to fight these powerful 
petrochemical companies. Under the 
threat of legal action the companies 


Hip Hop to 
Hip Hope 


As part of the month-long Black 
Arts Festival, several local speakers 
participated in a panel discussion 
Feb, 22 entitled Hip Hop to Hip Hope, 
The panel discussed issues relating 
to hip-hop and African-American 

The first issue the panel tackled 
was whether hip-hop is a specifical- 
ly African-American phenomenon, 
and the general consensus seemed 
to be that it is noL As Newcomb Col- 
lege sophomore Taneshia Straugh- 
Icr pointed out, hip-hop "constitutes 
not jusi race but anyone interested 
in hip-hop culture," 

The panel speakers were Raj 
Smoove, a disk jockey and produc- 
er in the New Orleans area; Shonda 
Hawkins, a nurse at the Tulane Uni- 
versity hospital and Alpha Kappa 
Alpha alumna: and Naiashia Slack, 
a State Farm Junior Achievement 
counselor. The panel was organized 
and mediated by Ashley Mayes, a 
senior in the Business School and 
vice president of the Black Arts Fes- 

Another major point of discus- 
sion was the commercialization of 
hip-hop. Smoove pointed out that 
there is a difference bet\^'cen culture 
and commercialization and diat peo- 
ple get the two confused. Slack 
expanded on the theme, saying peo- 
ple would like to belie\'e the image 
of commercial hip-hop artists is their 
personal reality, "because hip-hop 
is about presenting and expressing 
who you arc." 

This led the discussion to address 
ihe problem of how hip-hop is per- 

ceived as negative and violent. 

"When you look at reality in Amer- 
ica and sec hip-hop as an expression 
of self, mainstream America does- 
n't sec it that way." Hawkins said. 

"When you don't control your 
image, someone else will give you 
a label. It's on us to go out and show 
people diat we will not allow you to 
put us in a box," Minister Willitf 
Muhammad said. 

The discussion ended on the topic 
of sexism in the hip-hop communi- 

"We as black women and men 
need to be accountable for if we're 
going to buy into that [negative image 
of women as objects]." Hawkins said. 

"Buy is the operative word." 
Smoo\c said. "Every dollar we spend 
is a vote for what we believe and 
want to sec in the future. All these 
[major record] companies look al is 
ihc numbers, they don'l care aboul 
the message." 

While there was nol always a con- 
sensus on ihc issues, diere was a pre- 
dominant idea that, as Mayes put it, 
"there can be no hip hope if wc do 
not educate ourselves and pass it on," 

Black Arts Fest is conducted by 
Ihc African- American Congress of 
Tulane every year. This year's ihcmc 
is "Preparing for Our Future by Cel- 
ebrating Our Past," It kicked off with

Fair showcases programs 
from Argentina to Ghana 


The Center for International Soid- 
ies at Tulane University held its annu- 
al Study Abroad Fair al McAlisler 
Auditorium Feb. 23 to showcase the 
different foreign exchange and study 
abroad programs available for next 
year and answer questions for stu- 

The event showcased the sum- 
mer, semester and academic year 
international exchange and study 
abroad programs located in destina- 
tions all over the worid. 

According to Michelle Sadlicr, 
assistant director of the Center for 
Inlcmational Studies, the most pop- 

ular destination among Tulane stu- 
dents is the Unilcd Kingdoiti, because 
of the large number of universities 
to choose from, 

Program coordinators, faculty 
members and siudcnis who partici- 
pated in last year's programs were 
on hand to relate their experiences 
and answer questions for interested 
students about studying in places 
throughout Europe, Asia. Africa, 
South America and Australia. 

Pierce Grogan, a Tulane college 
senior majoring in Spanish who spent 
last fall studying in Buenos Aires, 
Argentina, said he gained an appre- 
ciation for Ihe local cuisine, which 
had "the best steak in the world." 

Grogan, who was handing out 

brochures for the program, said that 
in his travels throughout Argentina, 
he noticed Ihat shopping was not as 
expensive as it mi.y be in other tourist 
locations, "because the currency is 
so cheap, you triple your money and 
have more to spend," 

Andrew Barr, anthropology major 
at Tulane College who spent last 
spring in Ghana, reflected on Accra, 
a city of two million people, as the 
"safest African capital as far as crime 
is concerned." Barr said that die feel- 
ing of security made il easy for him 
to travel around freely and experi- 
ence the culture.

One game too late, 

Tulane women's basketball team 
rolled lo a 79-49 viciorj' over 
Southern Miss (9-18. 3-11) ai 
Fogclman Arena last Saturday after- 
noon. The Green Wave had ils best 
game of the season. 

However. Ihe team had already 
been knocked oul of any postseason 
activities, including the Conference 
USA loumamcni. because of ils loss 
to Louisville Feb, 20. The Green 
Wave (11-16. 3-1 1 in C-USA) came 
into the game with nothing lo play 
for. but played its best of die season. 

Third team all-C-USA member 
and senior Lakethia Hampton 
dropped 23 on Southern Miss on 
Senior Day and junior guard 
D'Aundra Henr>' pulled down a 
double-double wilh 14 points and 
10 rebounds. 

The team started the game with a 
16-2 run and never faced a deficit 
again. It was only the second liroc 
all year the women did not trail in a 
game. The lead was padded by five 
turnovers forced by Tulane during 
that run. 

The Green Wave defense forced 
23 Southern Miss turnovers, ihe 
1 tdi time that the Green Wave has 

done so this season. 
and turned ihem into 
28 points. 

On the day the 
women racked up a 
30-16 differential in 
points in the paint, a 
16-8 difference on 
second-chance points 
and a 21-5 difference 
on fasi-break points. 

Southern Miss 
atiempied a comeback 
late in the first, clos- 
ing Ihe gap to nine 
with 2:51 remaining 
in die half. But two 
consecutive baskets 
and a steal by 
Courtney Simmons 
gave the Green Wave 
an 11 -point cushion 
going into the locker 

The closest ihe 
Golden Eagles got 
was a lO-point differ- 
ence at the Stan of Uie second half 
and Ihe Green Wave maintained at 
least a 20-poini lead for the last 
16:32 of Ihe game. 

The 30-point victory was 
Tulanc's most one-sided since

The Green Wave improved to 
10-1 wilh two wins over 
Pepperdine and a win over 

Universilj' of New Orleans. The 
team earned two lough wins in 
their first road series of the season 
at Pepperdine last weekend. 

The No. 1 Green Wave suffered 
ils firsi loss to a PeppcnJine team 
that proved to be lough compeii- 

"We had to scratch and claw for

Coach Rick Jones said. 

Brian Bogusevic (3-0) pitched a 
complete game shutout in Friday 
night's 3-0 vicior>' and fr^hman 
third baseman Brad Emaus hit a 
grand slam Sunday to lead ihc 
Green Wave to a 7-6 vicior>'. 
Micah Owings took the loss as 
Pepperdine lopped the Green 
Wave Saturday. 5-2. 

"We were able lo win because 
we piichcd ver>' well and didn'i 

make any errors," Jones said. 

Bogusevie's firsl complete 
game shutout Friday nighi earned 
him Conference USA piicher of

time in three weeks. The 
Pepperdine offense had no answer 
for the junior lefty, who struck out 
eight and allowed just six men i^' 
reach base. 

Bogusevic lowered his ERA lo a 
miniscule 0.39 widi Friday's effon 
and improved his strikeout total to 

In die opener, the Green Wave 
offense collected 12 hits and scored 
three runs. Seniors Scott Madden

Ihc Green Wave could not ralK

"Any time you go on die road it 
mokes things really tough." senior 
Matt Barken said. "We would' ve

Coleman allowed just three sin-

Coming off their firsl loss, the 
Green Wave responded mightily

Conference honors prof, student 


Ser\'ing as on example of Tulane Uni- 
versity's excellent research programs and 
faculty, professor of biomedical engi- 
neering Natalia Trayanova and graduate 
student Molly Malecker recently attend- 
ed the prestigious Gordon Research Con- 
ference on Cardiac Arrhythmia Mecha- 
nisms in Santa Ynez Valley, Calif. At the 
conference, Trayanova was elected vice 
chair of next year's conference and Maleck- 
er won the Best Poster Presentation Award 
on the organ/tissue level. 

The Gordon Research Conference, held 
Feb. 20 - 25, is a scientific organization 
that conducts conferences focusing on a 
particular subject of scientific study. The 
first conference was held in 2003 and tuturc 
conferences are scheduled every two years. 
Unlike other conferences, Gordon Research 
Conferences are small in size, highly selec- 
tive in attendance and based around con- 
stant discussion and interaction in order 
to spur innovation and ideas. 

Malecker said the people who attend- 
ed the conference are "actually the movers 
and shakers. That is what it is, They con- 
dense il down into people that arc at the 
forefront of the field, they put them all 
together in a big pot and squeeze research 
out of them and talk about it." 

"We are the only ones from Tulane to 
go to that one. It is by invitation. You have 
to be accepted ,,. Ilisnot likeyoucanjusl 
go, even if you want to pay," Trayanova 

The attendees are isolated in one build- 
ing for five days in order to facilitate inter- 

action. For example, when presen- 
ters lecture, they have plenty of time 
after the presentation lo field ques- 
tions and engage in critical dialogue. 
The formal allows researchers and 
scientists to see new work done in 
other areas of specialty from the larg- 
er areas of organs and tissues to the 
smaller levels of the genome. 

Cardiac arrtiythmia, a serious heath 
problem in the United Stales, refers 
to the development of an irregular 
heartbeat. Its cause is unknown, 

"[It is] when your heart isn't beat- 
ing right or contracting right, It is all 
these people [at the conference] who 
are trying lo understand how sudden 
cardiac death occurs and what kind 
of therapy can by used to prevent 
thai," Trayanova said. 

Although she works with organs 
and tissues. Malecker said, "There 
are also people at the conference who 
do the genome or genetic component 
of the ion channel in the membrane 
of the cardiac cell. One of the reasons 
why I think [Trayanova's] platform 
for the election was so great was that 
she talked about integrating from a 
basic level, like a really molecular level, 
to an organ level, and I think that is very 

At the conference, an election by her 
peers granted Trayanova the new position 
of vice chair for the following two con- 
ferences. The position is extremely pres- 
tigious and important, because the chairs 
choose the direction the conference shall 
take. In a male-dominated field, the elec- 
tions demonstrate the importance and

Despite the highly respected reputa- 
tion of her challenger, Trayanova won her 
position by a decent margin, partly due to 
her dynamic vision for the conference. 
"There are very few engineers at that con- 
ference. It is mostly M.D.s and people 
who have [a] more medical background 
I am one of the very few who actually 

leaches undergraduate classes as well. To 
me, student participation is very impor- 
tant so this is one of the things thai I real- 
ly want to emphasize," Trayanova said. 
"The other part of [my] platform is how 
you put the science program, I want to 
have a rigorous process of approving these

In the spring, it is a common sight to see a Tulane 
student leading prospective students and their par-

"A Tour of Slavery and Segregation ai Tulane," 
presented as an alternative campus tour, look more 
than 50 current students, faculty and staff members 
from Gibson Hall lo Hebert Hall and ended in New-

SOAR organizers Nnvcomb College junior Cheryl 
Schmilz and philosophy graduate student Brian Wal- 
lers spoke at the different slops to inform the crowd 
about the school's links with slavery and segrega- 
tion, Schmitz and Wallers specifically outlined the 
racist legacy of those individuals who arc namesakes 
for some of the school's most prominent buildings, 

"If Tulane wishes to see itself in the league of 
other nationally ranked institutions, it would only 
enhance its own prestige by being one of the first 
universities in the South lo make this information 
available and provide an intellectual space for a dia- 
logue that considers potential actions thai could be 
taken," Schmitz said. 

According to Schmitz, Paul Tulane, the univer- 
sity's primary donor, was heir to a fortune acquired 


Engineers invent new game 

conlribuiing wrtta 

Three Tulane University engineers 
arc publicizing their newly invented 
board game. Deflexion, Engineering 
Professor Michael Larson and gradu- 
ate students Luke Hooper and Del Segu- 
ra created the game which has gained 
the praise of BusinessWeek magazine. 

For board game &ns who have grov.Ti 
weary of typical games like Candyland 
and Clue, Deflexion ofi'ers illuminat- 
ed Egypiian-themed game pieces Ihat 
shoot laser beams. With help from stu- 
dents, Larson renovated a classroom 
into a product-design studio. The stu- 
dio is used mainly for the product- 
design and product-developmenl 
courses taught by Larson in the 
mechanical engineering department. 

The studio provides space for stu- 
dents to brainstorm collaboratively 
in order to ultimately develop their 
ideas. This setting is responsible for 
the birth of the toy industry's latest 
success: the electronic board game, 

"After teaching product design for 
12 years, I decided to finally put an 
idea into action," Larson said, Lar- 
son, Hooper and Segma worked togeth- 
er to produce a prototype of Deflex- 
ion, an idea concocted by Larson's 
product-design class. 

"Coming up with the concept is 
usually the easy part in ihc design 
process. Prototyping, funding and 
producing the idea is where all the 
real work lies," Hooper said. The end 

result of this work was a two-player 
game. Deflexion — strategy al the speed 
of light. 

"Welcome to the world of Deflex- 
ion, the game that combines lasers with 
classic strategy for an experience enjoyed 
by players of all ages," claims the game's 
Web site, "Play- 
ers alternate turns moving Egyptian- 
ihemcd, mirrored pieces around the 
playing field after which they fire their 
low-powered laser diode with the goal 
of illuminating their opponent's pieces 
to eliminate them from tiie game." 

After careftil design and test mctics. 
the trio made a Deflexion prototype to 
showcase in New York's Internation- 

al Toy Fair, "Stores from across the 
country immediately demanded ship- 
ment orders before we even knew Deflex- 
ion would sell," Larson said. 

A generous grant from the Nation- 
al Collegiate Inventors and Innovators 
Alliance allowed the creators to pro- 
duce 500 copies of the game. Their first 
production copies for the pubhc will be 
on sale May 1, Business Week's Lau- 
ren Gard announced "the threesome get 
my vote" in reference lo Tulane 's genius 
tiio. Plans for Deflexion Day are in the 
making, Tulane students will have the 
opportunity to grab a slice of pizza and 
Uy out Deflexion for Uiemselves before 
therestof America gets hold of it.

Marathon in February to call attention 
to cancer research. Sarver is a lupus dis- 
ease survivor and also a coordinator of 
Bounce for Life, a relay event to bene- 
fit cancer research, 

Sarver, grants manager in the sec- 
tion of hematology and medical oncol- 
ogy in the Tulane University Health Sci- 
ences Center, proudly displayed a pair 
of large gilded running shoes on her 
office desk. However, the shoes are 
unique because the toe portion is cut off, 

"The reason why the toes arc miss- 
ing [is] they had to be chopped out; 
because, after so many hours [the run- 
ner's) toes were so swolen they had lo 

be cut out," Sarver said. 

The running shoes once belonged to 
Dr. Tyler Curiel, professor of hematol- 
ogy and medical oncology at Tulane. 

Curie! is the head professor of 
sinonasal undiffercniiated carcinoma 
research and also an ultra-marathon run-

Ross' lecture, entitled "High

negotiation skills in order to become 
successfiil in the competitive busi-

Ross claimed that a good per-

a businessman can have, along with 
knowledge of the subject matter, 
ability to organize informa- 
tion and knowledge of 
human nature, 

"You have lo figure

Ross gave advice on how to 
develop these valuable trails and 
skills. Becoming comfortable around

new clients or associates, is cmcial. 
"First and foremost, you have 
lo become a nice penion." Ross said. 
Other points included becom- 
ing flexible and trustworthy and 
having a notebook at all times. 

"You need to start writing down 
important information or sayings 
in order to remember little things 
about the business," Ross said. "I 
do it and so does Trump, so you 
know il works." 

Ross spoke in detail about under- 
slanding human nature and how 
importani il is lo the negotiations 

"People want what they can't 
have, so convince them that your

DePaul opened the game on an 18-4

Tuiane starting out ice cold. The Green

Finney fired after another losing season for men's basketball 

contributing writer 

.\fiLT four losing seasons in five years, 
Tulane Athletic Director Rick Dickson 
.innounccd Sunday that men's basketball 
coach Shawn Finney will not be returning 
for the 2005-2006 season. 

"We arc certainly appreciative of the hard 
Horic Shawn and his staff have done on behalf 
of Tulane University over the last five >'eais," 
Dickson said. "We have shown improve- 
ment and there has been progress made in 
many areas, including the academic perfor- 
mance in terms of graduation, APR and grade 
point average. Yet ultimately the program 
did not move fon\ard enough in the areas of 
competitive success and support." 

Dickson and Finney arranged a meeting 
in the home locker room at Fogelman Arena 
to break the news to the players. Dickson 
first stated that he and Finney both agreed it 
was time for him to step down. Finney spoke 
ai1cr\vard, emphasizing the mo\'e was a mutu- 

al agreement. 

"I would like to thank Tulane University 
and Rick Dickson," Finney said. "I appreci- 
ate the opportunity they gave me. I have had 
a great experience, met some wonderful peo- 
ple and made some great friends, 1 wish Tulane 
the best of luck; now I am looking forward 
to my next coaching opportunity." 

Manj' of the players were expecting a rou- 
tine meeting and were shocked by the 

"It was really surprising," junior forward 
Quincy Davis said. "I really wasn't expect- 
ing iL It was very emotional at the beginning, 
because he was actually part of our family. 
Whether or not he was doing his job, he was 
a part of the family. For us to lose him, it was 
obviously not a good situation that anybody 
on our team wanted to be in." 

The team's perpetual struggles and the 
failure to produce results in the past two sea- 
sons sealed Finney's fate. 

The Green Wave accumulated a 21-35 
record over the last two years with a dismal 

8-24 record in Conference USA. The team 
qualified as the 1 2th and fmal seed for the 
C-USA tournament both seasons, but was 
oustedin the first round, including a season 
ending 81-71 loss toDePaul last Wednes- 

This year's squad, which included eight 
freshmen and sophomores, fmished with a 
10-18 record and an RPi ranking of 267 out 
of 330 Division 1 teams. The RPI ranking is 
a numeric ratings percentage index that ranks 
teams according to se\'eral variables includ- 
ing record, strength of non -con fere nee and 
conference schedules. This 267 ranking is 
fifth lowest in the nation among teams play- 
ing within the 1 major conferences. 

"He's not out there playing, but coaching 
does play a pari in [wirming]. You have to 
stick in the right combination of players at 
any given moment, so some people might 
criticize him that he's not doing a good job 
with substitutions," Davis said. "Even if we

Louisiana can add value 
to the resources it has. 

Yesterday's conference

facilities — all the things students 
care about. So the more success- 
,ful we are, the more we're going 
to be able to provide those kinds 
of resources to our people and to

Most Americans dread April I5as 
they turn their attention to filing their 
lax retums. But for a group of Tulane 
students, the looming deadline means 
an opportunity to ser\'e people through- 
out the city. 

"It's nice to see the look on some- 
one's face when you tell 
them how much money

'Tulane played an in.stnimental role," 
he said, "primarily in supplying vol-

While several students in the law

Each spring as fraternities and soror- 
ities open their doors to new pledges, the 
Howard Tilton Memorial library is con- 
gested with groups of students tia\'eling 
en masse to partake in recommended 
group study. For the past five years, Lance 
Query, dean of the libraries, has received 
complaints of the noise level the groups 
cause and has been working with admin- 
istrators to solve the problem. This year, 
the problem has worsened and the dean 
is moving to find a solution. 

"The problem must be solved because 
it is our responsibility in the library to 
ensure diat our students and feculty who 
wish to use the library for study/research, 
the use for which it is intended and for 
which students pay dearly, deser\'e no 
less." Query said. "If one can't study or 
do research in a research library, where 
can diey expect to do it?" 

Query has been collaborating with 
Dean of Newcomb College Cynthia 
Lowendial and Associate Vice President 
for Student Affairs Dan Nadler to work 
out a solution. 

"The closing of the UC for renova- 
tions has meant a shrinking number of 
spaces available to students to study, espe- 
cially in the c\'ening5." Lowenthal said "So 
it is even more vital tliat the library remain 
a place where students can go and think. 
read and write without having to contend 
with the distractions that I now under- 
stand ha\'e become commonplace." 

As of press time, Nadler was unavail- 
able for comment. 

She explained that Query is working 
with lepresenlalives from Student Afiaiis, 
Pan-Hellenic and Inlerfraiemity Coun- 
cil and believes they will come to a con- 
clusion soon. 

"We've wori<ed with Dan Nadler and 
Jacob Bolin, [director of Fraternity and 
Sorority Programs], and they have con- 
veyed the nature and extent of the dis- 
ruption problem widi die various hous- 
es and explored altemati\'es with them," 
Query said. 

Query suggests that "die most effec- 
tive action would be for the fraternities 
and sororities not to send dieir pledge 
classes to [the librar>') en masse," He 
belie\es that the noise is only a problem 
when the students snidy in large groups, 
encouraging what he called "herd men- 

If the pledges are not encouraged to 
all smdy at the same time and place, Quer>' 
said "tliere would not be ihe groups com-

Know Your Campus: AVP Bailey 

Jaclyn Rosenson 


Just call him Bailey. 

Although the suit and the Ph.D. 
may convey an all-business attitude, 
new Assistant Vice President for Stu- 
dent Affairs Dr. Kevin Bailey is con- 
cerned about the students and mak- 
ing Tulane a better place. 

Before coming to Tulane Feb, 28, 
Bailey was the assistant vice presi- 
dent. Student Affairs, at Millersville, 
a wcll-rcspecied public school of 
about 8,000 students in Lancaster, 
Pcnn, At Millersville he oversaw stu- 
dent programs, leadership, oncnia- 
iion. Greeks, student organizations, 
ihe wellness and women's center, 
community sei%'icc, career services 
and the student center. 

At Tulane, Bailey reports to Dr. 
Cynthia Cheney, vice president for 

student affairs and oversees orienta- 
tion, leadership, parent and family 
programs, and judicial matters. 

While Bailey said he is up for the 
challenge, he also said he Is still try- 
ing to ligure out what those challenges 

Bailey was attracted to Tulane by 
the warm New Orleans weather, the 
school's international reputation and 
a genuine feeling that he could con- 

Bailey was nominated for the job 
at Tulane by both a mutual colleague 
of he and Chcrrcy, He then met Cher- 
rey at a conference and they discatsed 
the position more, which motivated 
him to apply for the job, 

Bailey looks forward to getting 
Tulane students invested in and con- 
nected to the university during ori- 
entation. Although Millersville recent- 
ly changed their orientation to a fall- 

only program, Bailey has worked at 
other institutions where the push has 
been to do part of orientation over 
summer, "Given the Tulane popula- 
tion, it makes sense to lake the show 
where [they] are." Bailey said. 

His goals are fairly generic at the 
moment since he has yet to learn the 
ins and outs of Tulane. but he did 
speculate on what he would like to 
achieve with the judicial and leader- 
ship aspects of his position. 

Injudicial matters, Bailey would 
like to see the process streamlined. 
He feels that collegiate judicial pro- 
ceedings should be a way for students 
to make mistakes and have tlic oppor- 
tunity to Icam in an educational, rather 
than punitive, environment. 

Bailey would like lo have students 
Icam morc about themselves and stu- 
dent organizations through leader- 
ship positions that may be applica- 

ble to their post-Tulanc lives. Bailey 
noted that quality of "leadership has 
been called into question, most par- 
ticularly after the whole World- 
Com/Enron debacles ... three years 
ago now. when the whole ethics thing 
was big ..." He hopes to help "peo- 
ple remember those and other things 
that can help them be better con- 
tributing members of society." 

In general Bailey would like to 
"leave Tulane. and the student body. 
better off than before he got here," 
He acknowledges that in order to do 
this he must "[spend] time, meeting 
people, learning about programs — 
this is where we need to spend our

A sparse crowd braved strong winds and cold 
wcalhcr Wednesday lo watch Ihe No. 3 Green 
Wave lop ihe Texas Southern Tigers 8-4. 

The Green Wave (16-3) was oui-hit 10-7 by 
the scrappy Tigers (6-6-1). but Tulane capital- 
ized on five walks, four errors and a hit batter to 
score five of their runs. 

"It was an ugly game. Offensively we were 
not ver>' good, and I was very disappointed," 
Head Coach Rick Jones said, "Defensively I 
thought we were very good and that saved us." 

Junior center fielder Nathan Southard led the 
anemic Green Wave ofTense. tallying three hits 
and one of the four Green Wave RBIs, His sec- 
ond inning pop-up scored junior Micah Owings 
on one of the three Tiger errors in the inning. 

"We were just trying to gel something 
going," Southard said. "We didn't get too many 
hits tonight and we could have done better. We 
got a few hits thai got us some runs." 

Southard also scored in the t"ifih on a wild 

pilch, and his insurance 1^1 in the eighth inning 
was one of ^e stranger plays of the evening. 
With freshman Brad Emaus sitting on second 
after he stole it. Southard cracked his next pilch 
into the outfield. Unfortunately, he held up 
between first and second bases to watch if 
Emaus scored. Emaus did. but Southard was 
caught flat-fooied and looking confused and 
tagged out on a rundown when the relay throw 
in from the outfield reached the infield. 

"We've got to gel better if we're going to 
have the kind of club that we want to," Jones 
said. "I know that we are working very hard but 
tonight we didn't have a ver>' good night." 

Tc,\as Southern got on the board first as lead- 
off man Andre Nevels reached on a walk, then 
stole second and scored on an RBI-single by 
first baseman Herman Coachmen. The Tigers 
batters were pushed on all night long by chanti- 
ng coming from the visitor's dugout during each

'They had a lot of intensity, and you can 
admire that they can gel together as a team and 
put out that intensity," Southard said about the 


Junior right-hander Billy Mohl sinjck out a 
season-best seven and walked just one while 
giving up three runs on six hits in six innings of 
work to improve lo get the win. 

"I haven't started for like a year." Mohl said. 
"My nerves were acting up a bit in the first, but 
I settled down. They pui a few hits together in 
the third, fourth. I calmed down and shut them 
dowTi the rest of the way," 

Coachmen was the Tiger's offensive leader on 
the night, going 2 for 5 with a run and two RBIs, 

Tulane countered wiih three runs in the bot- 
tom of the second all scored on errors. In the 
innings Ihe Tigers had ihree errors, a balk and 
numerous throwing errors.

HEAD COACH, prior experience, 
success, leadership abilities 

There was joy Uplown when 
men's basketball coach Shawn 
Finney got the boot Sunday, 
Finally, after five long seasons. 
Tulane basketball will get a fresh 
Stan. The start of next season will 
herald a new look for Conference 
USA, a more mature and 
improved squad, and now, a new 
head coach minding the bench. 

As Ihe search for a new coach 
begins. Tulane musi not make the 
same mistakes as before. Prior to 
his hiring, Shawn Finney was an 
assistant coach, plucked off Tubby 
Smith's staff at Kentucky, never 
having been a head coach in his 
career. The Green Wave cannot 
afford another young assistant 
coach coming in and trying lo 
learu to lead on the fiy. 

The solution be a current 
college head coach who has shown 
that he can motivate his team to 
victory. The best options are low- 
major Division I head coaches who 
have been able to win with 
mediocre talent and small budgets. 

Names thai should head the list 
of candidates include Ron 
Everhart. a former Tulane assis- 
tant under Perry Clark, who has 
revived the programs at McNecsc 
Si. and Northeasicm; Gregg 
Marshall, who has led Winthrop to 
five NCAA tournament appear- 
ances in his first seven seasons; 
and Billy Kennedy, another for- 
mer Tulane assisiani, who just 
guided Southeastern Louisiana to 
its first loumameni bid ever. 

Head coaches who have had suc- 
cess in small conferences with aver- 
age players should prose to have the 
ability to take Tulane to the next 
level. This squad has the talcni to 
succeed in next year's weaker C- 
USA. They simply need a leader to 
take them to Ihe next level, and ihis 
opportunity lo revive Tulane basket- 
ball must not be taken lightly. 

Blake Roier is a Tulane College 
senior majoring in political sci- 
ence. Blake insists his coaching 
experience in ESPN College Hoops 
should make hint a candidate to 
coach Tulane. Blake can be

of three to defending champs Cal State Fullerton 

Lack of offense, timely hitting by strong Fullerton 
squad lead to tough Green Wave losses 

Ben Eisenberq 


.After dropping the first iwo 
games of last weekend's three- 
game scries to the defending 
national champions Cal State 
Fullerton, the Tulane offense 
finally came alive in Game Three 
to cam a 13-9 victory and a little 

The much-hyped scries pitied 
the No. I Green Wave (15-3) 
against the No. 3 Titans (14-3). 
who eliminated the Green Wave 
in last season's Super Regionals 
en route to winning the NCAA 

Friday's 15-1 loss at Turchin 
was the worst suffered by Tulane 
since April 19. 2000. when the 
Green Wave was roulcd 21-6 by 
LSU at Zephyr Stadium. Fullerton 
had a much tougher task Saturday 
as it held off a furious Green 
Wave comeback for a 9-S win. 

The Green Wave then earned 
its first-ever win against Fullerton 
in Sunday's 13-9 victory, 

Friday's contest featured a 
matchup of two left-handed aces 

on the mound in Tulanc's Brian 
Bogusevic and Fullerton's Ricky 
Romero. Both were preseason ail- 
Americans and entered the game 
with ERA under :.00, 

While Romero turned in a bril- 
liani performance. Bogusevic was 
roughed up by the Titans' offense. 
Bogusevic racked up nine strike- 
outs but was tagged with six 
earned runs through six innings of 
work. Meanwhile, Romero sur- 
rendered just one earned run and 
three hits over 6 1/3 innings. 

"Ricky has a good fastball, 
good changeup and good break- 
ing ball that he mixes up." senior 
outfielder Malt Barkel said, 
"When he's throwing all three of 
them for strikes like he did 
Friday, he's one of the better guys 
in the country." 

The game was still within 
reach for the Green Wave through 
six innings as the Titans led 3-0. 
However, things started to get out 
of hand in the seventh when the 
Titans posted three runs against 
Bogusevic and two against junior 
reliever Ricky Fairchild. who 
allowed nine earned runs in 2 2 

innings. Senior catcher Greg Dim 
was amazed at how well the 
Titans hit Green Wave pitching. 

"Our pitchers didn't even miss 
spots," Dini said. "But it seemed 
tike they hit every single pitch, 
just fouling tough pilches off with 
two strikes." 

Junior transfer Micah Owings 
started Saturday's contest ut 
Zephyr Stadium against 
Fullerton's Ryan Schreppel. who 
entered the game with a 1.29 

The Titans appeared to be well 
on their way lo coasting to anoth- 
er victory after Owings left the 
game after five innings, giving up 
seven earned runs. Tulane was in 
a 9-3 hole by the bottom of sixth 

"I actually thought I had some 
of the best stuff I've ever had in 
my career Saturday." Owings 
said. "Their two-strike hitting is 
just incredible. They're a great 
hitting team." 

The Green Wave battled back 
lo knock in five runs in the bot- 
tom of the seventh inning, high- 
lighted by Dini's controversial 


Tht standard hasebatl rule thai good pitching beats good hitting didn 7 apply in 

last weekend's series.

ihree-run blast to left field. The 
ball sailed just over the wall and 
bounced back onto the field and 
was originally ruled a double. 
However, the umpires conferred 
and ruled it a home run after a 
lengthy delay. 

'There's no question that Greg 
IDini's] home run energized us," 
Head Coach Rick Jones said. "I 
think the momentum carried over 
into the next game." 

Titans closer Vinnie Pesiano 
came in and iced the Green Wave 
offense over the eighth and ninth 
innings to cam a seven-out save. 

"We've just got to lip our caps 
to Vinnie Pestano for shutting us 
down." Jones said. "Bui we 
could've won that game if we did 

some of the little things better." 

Junior centerfielder Nathan 
Southard and senior infielder 
Tommy Manzella each had 3 
RBIs Sunday as the Green Wave 
came alive and earned a 13-9 vic- 
too'. Southpaw J.R. Crowell (4-0) 
earned Ihe victory. 

"1 think this is a big win for us. 
beating the defending national 
champions," Dini said. "I think 
now we're going to get on a nice, 
long winning streak after this." 

The Green Wave gave Crowell 
all the support he needed in the 
first two innings, scoring eight 
runs off Titans starter Scott 
Sar\'er (3-2), 

Junior pitcher Brandon Gomes 
came on in relief of Crowell in the 

sixth inning and limited the 
vaunted Titans offense to just one 
earned run in 3 2/3 innings, 

"We kepi trying to strcich Ihe 
lead late, getting more and more 
runs which helped a lot." Jones 
said. "Their offense can erupl at 
any time, so no lead was safe." 

On a down note for the Green 
Wave, Bogusevic aggravated a 
hamstring injurv' that has plagued 
him all season while trying lo beat 
out a ground ball. 

"I wouldn't anticipate seeing 
him hitting for a while." Jones 
said, "It may be a few weeks. 
We'll have to see how bad it is." 

The weekend series drew 
17.000 fans, a record for Tulane

Ripped Tide 

Tulane mascot admits steroid use 

By Jose Condregas 

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Sitting 
beside iiis lawyer, Tulane General Coun- 
sei Victoria Johnson, Green Wave mas- 
col Riptide bra\ed potential legal reper- 
cussions and admitted under oath at 
Congressional hearings last Friday to 
using steroids lo improve his perfor- 

Riptide's testimony, which followed 
vigorous denials of similar use of per- 
formance enhancing drugs by an ema- 
ciated, gray-haired Mr. Commodore 
from Vandcrbilt and a newly bufFBru- 
tus the Buckeye from Ohio Stale, gen- 
erated audible gasps in the committee 
hearing room. 

"When we were in the 'upgrade 
stage" as they called it, 1 was given pills 
and injections by Mr. Dickson," Rip- 
tide told the House Committee for 
Governmental Refonn. 

The substances, later identified 
as the "rip" and the "tide" allowed 
the mascot lo enhance his hai size, 
fiindraising swing and ability to 
hype up the crowds. 

Tulane President Scott Co wen, 
who bragged during (he Promise 
and Distinction weekend of a "new 
and improved" Riptide "that you'll 
just have lo see to believe," issued 
a blanket denial yesterday of the uni- 
versity's involvement in any steroid- 
related matters. 

Athletic Director Rick Dickson, 
however, acknowledged the uni- 
versity's role in funding Riplide's 
training regimen, though he dispuled 
Riptides allegations of illegal drug use. 

"I think everyihing about ihe new 
mascot is great, except maybe his mem- 
ory," Dickson said. "He was never 
injected with anything; he only spent 
hours at the gym every day working 
out trying to pump himself up so he 
could better pump up Wave fans." 

Visual evidence suggests otherwise. 
In Riptide's recent public appearances, 
he was shown lo be sporting more feath- 



ers, believed by many to be a "cover" 
for Ihe increased muscle mass. 

"I don't get it, how did he go from 
a scrawny little pelican to the new 'super 
pelican' in only a few months," Tulane 
college freshman Geoff Oppenheimer 
said. "I guess this must be the 'big 
splash' that ihe athletic director and 
Cowen promised all of us." 

In a Topical Wave e-mail lo the 
Tulane student body, Cowen said his 
statements were taken oul of context 
and questioned the logic of a pelican 
using substances such as Human Growth 

"Why would he need to use steroids 
anyT.vay, he isn't ihat vital pari of the 
ftindiaising events for the athledc depart- 
ment," Cowen wrote. "If there is any- 
one there taking steroids, it would 
be the women's s\\Tmming team. 
Seriously, you expect us to 
belie\'e a Tulane team can win 
conference championship 
injusl two years of exis- 

Following his testi- 
mony. Ripdde declined 
interview requests but 
issued a statement 
through Tulane ath- 
letics marketing director 
Steve Walsh- 

"1 have never knowing- 
ly taken illegal steroids," 
Walsh read. "Mr. Dickson 
said everything we were 
doing was legal, but I began 
lo question this. 1 have feather 
growth everywhere but shrink- 
age elsewhere . , . The kids don't even 
call me Pecker any more," 

Dickson denied Riptide's allega- 
tions, pointing to the mascot's absence 
from most football and basketball games 
this season. "The change really hasn't 
been that dramatic, but few people ever 
saw Riptide, especially at Fogelman." 
Dickson said. Dickson added that with 
head basketball coach, he hopes 
more students will lake advantage of 
attending a game where a mascot dance 
would not be considered a highlight. 

Critics love Tulane as Harvard 

Possible OscarnormmHon in the cards 

By Frank Ahagnale 

Well, if you can'l join them, play Uiem in a 
movie. That's the altilude Tulane University 
administrators have taken, and it's starting to 
pay off. Tulane has received much critical acclaim 
for its portrayal of Harvard University in "The 
Brooke Ellison Slory" and the media is abuzz 
with rumors of a possible Oscar nod for the per- 

"We have been working for so many years 
and poured so much money into trying to improve 
our rankings in academic surveys like 'U.S. News 
and World Report'," President Cowen said. "Then 
we realized Hollywood is a much easier critic lo 
win over. So wc decided to focus on being 'Har- 
vard of the Screen' instead of 'Harvard of the 

Cowen cilcd several reasons playing ihe Ivy 
League in a movie is easier than actually ascend- 
ing to Ihc ranks of an cliic university. There's 
"not all this emphasis on improving quality of 
course offerings and more selective admissions 
rcquircmenls. And acting is pretty much second- 
nature on this campus. The computer labs and 
libraries, for in.stancc, have been pretending lo 
be up-to-date and pertinent for years," 

Among the standout pcrfomnanccs of Tulane's 
turn as Harvard arc Woldcnbcrg Art Center for 
lis dual role as both d classroom and a Harvard 
dorm room. 

"Thai kind of range from on inanimate object 
is rcnlly rare," film critic P Ompou.i said. 

While most film critics generally agree (hat 
Tulane's performance was convincing, there is 
some disagreement over whether il is deserving 
of Academy Award recognition. 

"The thing is, there are people who don'l think 
it was really that much ofa stretch for Tulane lo 
play a part of the Ivy League. I mean, they have 
all of the basic components, at leasl on the sur- 
face: a privileged student body, weak sports pro- 
grams and inflated tuition rates," Ompous said. 
"The general rule of thumb is that if you wanl lo 
win an Oscar, you have to go 'slumming' for Ihe 
role. I mean, lookatthecxamples- Halle Berry 
in "Monster's Ball' and Hilary Swank in 'Boys 
Don'l Cry.' 

"For Tulane to really be a shoo-in for an Oscar, 
ihe school needs lo lake on a role that requires 
them lo get ugly. Like playing LSU," he said. 

Though there are no plans lo play LSU or any 
other state school in the near future - "flying in 
a spirited student body and athletic teams thai 
actually win arc noi expenses we're prepared to 
take on right now," Cowen said - other offers 
are popping up. 

"We've had a lot of calls for Tulane to play 
Stanford. Emory and Duke, among olhers, So it 
could really be Ihe start of a new career for the 
school." Casting Director Ben Scrood said. "I 
mean, this is definitely going lo add clou! to ihc 
routine fund-mising drives ihal Cowen goes on. 
Hying lodrumuppilydonalions from the alum- 
ni. Now he's really going lo have something lo 
sell — making the transition from jusl another 
money-grubbin' ho lo high-class Hollywood 
madam, so lo speak." 

Worm attacks 
Tulane ... again 

Stiidenrs can 't access AIM 
By Polne Dexter 


A highly advanced womi worked 
ils way through Tulane's network 
last week, wreaking havoc on 
Tulane's systems. The womi, dubbed 
"Win69,HighFivc" by security 
experts, spreads itself via e-mail 
with the subject line "THIS IS A 

Confused by the ambiguous nature 
of the e-mail, several students and 
the majority of the administration 
opened ihe e-mail, causing further 
infections. "1 thought il might have 
been a virus, but 1 couldn't risk miss- 
ing secret information about Paris 
Hilton's night life!" Vice President 
of Student Affairs Cynthia Chcrrey 

"This is gay. man, that e-mail 
said il had piclures oflhe Olscn twins 
in a threesome with Bob Sagel, now 
all I gel is pop-ups of giant cocks all 
the lime," exclaimed freshman Clark 

The virus also spreads lo Blue- 
looth enabled phones and PDA's, 
allowing Ihe worm lo jump on lo 
any device within 30 feci. After 50 
cent nighi al The Bool, the worm 

quickly worked its way through the 
intricate network of sorority girls, 
raising the level of campus infec- 
tions to 98 percent. 

Once the virus is installed on the 
system, it quickly assumes total con- 
trol. Whenever a user allempis lo 
execute a command, the system sim- 
ply replies "Fuck you. do your own 
damn work!" The virus also lakes 
control of popular communication 
protocols like AIM, sending oul 
embarrassing piclures and phrases 
such as "I'm pregnant ... again," 
and "Dude, what did I do last nighl 
and why is my ass bleeding?" 

Technology Services quickly 
responded to the disaster by pelting 
students with anti-vinis CD's as they 
walked to classes. "This is about the 
only way we can gel through lo peo- 
ple, a good knock upside the head." 
commented Adam Krob. director of 
End User Support Services. Tulane 
Chief Infomialion OHlccr John Law- 
son also sent out an e-mail warning 
students oflhe virus. No one received 
il because Webmail was down. 

New regulations are being put 
into place to avert another crippling 
attack on Tulane's systems. Users 
caughl spreading the virus will have 
their computer remotely detonated, 


Vandals breakinto 'Hullabaloo' 
office, cause misspellings 


"Hullabaloo" Editor-in-Chief Jaclyn 
Rosenson filed a formal complaint with 
Tulane University Police Deparimcnt 
Wednesday concerning a rash of vandal- 
ism that has plagued the newspaper with 
errors and misspellings for most of this 
y ear- 
Though sightings of the vandals were 
infrequent, the officers responding to the 
complaint were shown much evidence of 
the vandals" activity. In the lost 21 issues, 
according to Rosenson, there are at leasl 
as many as 40 to 50 errors, 

"It would be different if this were an 
isolated event." Rosenson said, "But the 
volume of incidents here shows thai the 
'Hullabaloo' is the target of a massive, 
and extremely well organized scheme." 
Chief Copy Editor Christopher John- 
son added. "When you look at the Sept. 
24 issue, wc say that Election Day is Nov. 
3 instead of Nov. 2 and that's just wrong. 
There's no way ihai could have resulted 
from an\1hing shod of extreme malice on 
the part of these hoodlums "

Tlie new sheriff of Tulane men's basketball is eight-year-old lyier Powell 

By Jncobln IWugntu 

When Shawn Finney was 
n;lit:\ed of his head coocliing duties 
lust month, ii was widely cxpccl- 
ctl Aihlftic Diatlor Rick Dick- 
son would set his sights on lui older, 
more experienced cnndidulc. 

However, the new face of 
Tulune men's baskelball bears no 
signs of aging. No ^ray hairs, no 
sagging cheeks, no grizj'.lcd beard. 
niat is because Dickson and Tulane 
announced Wednesday thai cighl- 
ycar-old Tyler Powell has signed 
fivc-ycarconiracl to coach the 
Green Wave. 

"We know there will be some 
eyebrows mised on this one." ' Dick- 
son admitted. "I don't want peo- 
ple 10 think that we hired an eighl- 
ycar-old jusi because head coach 
ol'Tulane men's basketball is a 
job thai nobody wanled, 

"While thai may be true. I don't 
want people lo think il." 

Powell was nol in attendance 
al the press conference as it look 
place nfler his standard bedtime 
of S;30 p.m., bul he was available 
to the "Hullabaloo" the following 
morning — after ho finished his 
Rice Krispies. 

"One thing aboul Rice Krispies 
is ihal ihcy snap, crackle and pop 
when they hit milk," Powell said. 
"Plus they only have diree gnims 
of sugar, so I guess it's healthy." 
Powell has lived his entire life 
in Louisiana and spent ihe last five 
years living here in New Orleans 
where he has frequently visited 
Tulanc's campus. 

"1 pby baskelball with my friend 
Jason al the Rcily Center, I' ve gone 
swimming in the pool and I've 
calen in the Bubble," Powell said. 
"T like the food al the Bubble, The 
spaghclti is good, bul not as good 
as my mom's, And neither is the 

During ihe contract negotia- 
lions, Powell's parents, Jeff and 
Jane, indicaled ihal they would nol 
push back iheir son's curfew jusl 
because of die demands of his new 
job. Because of this, Dick-son aga-cd 

lu iitove game-s limes up lo u ."* 
p.m. slan for ihc entire length 

■■I'm nol going to lie to you, 
il'1 lo cull up schools 
like Memphis and Centiul Flori- 
da and convince them to play 
men's basketball games at 3 
p.m. when we tmveled to their 
campuses." Dickson said. "Bul 
we werc willing to make some 

"Tliey might have mon; ener- 
gy in ihe allemoon than al night 
anyway." Powell said. 

Included among the con- 
cessions Dickson referred lo is 
an agreement ihal Tulane will 
play Ihe first eight minutes of 
every conference game with 
only four players. 

Additionally, ibe Ga-cn Wave 
will have lo shool free throws 
underhanded and rccruil at least 
one player from Ihe stale of 
Idaho every year. 

'"I don't really know any- 
diing aboul Idaho really." Pow- 
ell said, "I jusl know where it 

Despite all of ihe compro- 
mises Dickson had lo make lo 
gel game limes moved up. he 
remains confident thai Tulane 
baskelball is headed in the righi 
direction. Well, sort of confi- 
dcni anyway. 

"Uhlih," Dickson said. "Well, 
the program really has nowhere 
to go but up after lasl season." 

Not only is Powell better 
wilh the media and generally 
more likeable ihan Finney, he 
is also bcllcr dressed — an often 
undcrraled quality in college 

"While superior coaches like 
Rick Pilino and John Callapari 
always dress wilh diginily, 
Finney couldn't match clolhcs 
very well," fashion guru Lylc 
LcBlang noted. "Finney always 
had ihe look of a five-year-old 
whose mom picked oui his clothes." 

Powell, meanwhile, has die look 
of an eig/i/ -year- old whose mom 
picked out his clolhes. 

"I always pick out my own 
clothes unless it's a special occa- 
sion or i can't find things thai match, 
then my mom helps me," Powell 


As the new head coach of men's basketball. Tyler Powell hopes to ring the victory bell often during his five-year contract. He is 
also determined to lose all his baby teeth. 

said, "I think it's jusl fun to dress 

While this will be Powell's first 
head coaching job, il would be 
errant to say he is not experienced 
in basketball. He has attended dirce 
professional basketball games in 
the lasl 16 months. 

"One thing I've learned is that 
miod teams need teamwork and 

practice," Powell said. "I've also 
learned a lot of good moves lo try 
on the hoop in my room," 

He also has quite a few iricks 
up his sleeve. 

"1 don't know how lo coach 
really, bul I can come up widi some 
good smiegics," Powell said. "One 
time my sister left her tea party 
toys out and 1 filled one of die cups 

with water when no one was look- 
ing When my mom went to pick 
up the toys, the water spilled all 
over the carpet. It was really funny 
lo see her face," 

This is not die first time Pow- 
ell has considered a head coach- 
ing position. After ihe New Orleans 
Homcts fired Tim Floyd al the end 
of ihe 2003-04 season, Powell was 

on the short lisl for the job, bul 
said, "1 don't have a car yet, so I

Tulane football to move home field to 
Scelfo backyard 

Tulane Adilelics has final- 
ly appeased Green Wave fans' 
desire lo see home football 
games played outside while 
simultaneously appeasing Head 
Coach Chris Scelfo "s desire to 
save on gas money. 

The Green Wave has ter- 
minated ils lease widi Ihe Super- 

dome JLid signed ^ new one 
wilh the Scelfos lo play all 
home games in ihcir backj-ard. 

"The reasoning behind Ihis 
is nol purely financial," Ath- 
letic Director Rick Dickson 
said- "We already ha\-e a Scelfo 
as head coach, oficnsive coor- 
dinator and al back-up quar- 
terback, so this will really cui 
down commuting lime for a 
good portion of die learn." 

Students seemed support- 
ive of die move. 

"Well, I never liked seeing 

Ihc games pla\ ed indoors, bul 
1 always figured diey'd move 
to Tad Gormley Stadium." 
Tulane junior Briilanic Ingram 
said. "Nonetheless. I hear 
Grandpa Scelfo sometimes for- 
gets to check ID." 

The move also has certain 
aeslhelic benefits. "The kids 
all seemed really tired of play- 
ing in an enormous empty sta- 
dium," Scelfo said, "The Super- 
dome scats aboul 70,000, bul 
my backyard has a far more 
intimate capacity of around 16. 

I diink that should really make 
die games seem more packed." 
The Scelfo's plan lo accom- 
modale rival teams. "I can'l 
wail to gel the barbcque fired 
up for UAB; dieir head coach 
has been bragging aboui his 
chicken for years," Scelfo said, 
"I'm really excited lo see the 
took on his face when I whip 
oul my legendary bratwurst."

of faculty in child and adolescent

Each week this scirasler, the Tulane 
University Fencing Club has taught 
high school students how to fence as 
part of "Forticrworks." a program at 
Alcce FortierHigh School aimed at 
imprD\'ing the life choices of students. 

Fortier.vorks was an existing pro- 
gram at Alccc Foftier when the TUFC 
was asked by program director John 
Wyscman to complete the "healthy 
lifestyle" component of the program. 
The program as a whole includes var- 
ious programs and activities involved 
with improving sWdcnts' academics. 
public speaking skills, personal finance 
skills, lecn pregnancy prevention and 
community service. 

The fencing component, added in 
January, is aimed not only at teach- 
ing the students how to fence, but also 
how to properly exercise and lead a 
healthy lifestyle. 

Dorothy Contiguglia. a Ncwcomb 
College junior and president of TUFC,

Child's pl.iv is G power sou rtf when Professor 
Pjndi.-in harnesses energy produced by playground 


The Discovery Channel Canada's "Daily 
Planet" featured Tulane Professor Raj Pan- 
dian and his development of playground equip- 
ment ihat harnesses the energy generated by 
children and converts it into a useable power 
source. The program aired March 28. 

Pandian. a professor of robotics in the 
School of Engineering, along with his col- 
leagues, graduate students, and even neigh- 
bors, started the project in 2003. using Pan- 
dian's own backyard as a lab for developing 
the equipment. The project originally focused 

on traditional outdoor play 
equipment like mcrry-go- 
rounds, teeter- to Iters and 
swing sets.'bul has since 
expanded indoors with aver- 
cise bikes that appeal to 
children by incorporating 
video games. The energy 
that IS harnessed by the 
equipment can then be used 
as a backoip source of ener- 
gy or as a power source for 
household objects like fans 
and lighting. 

"It is not an expensive 
or difficult system to de\'el- 
op," Pandian said. He sees 
such equipment as poten- 
tially useful especially in 
developing countries where 
hydroelectric power is the 
m jin source of energy, but 
i'lk-n fails due to droughts 
i'[ iither malfunctions. 

"The first source of 
p(i\\ cr people had was mus- 
lIc power," Pandian said 
jhout the idea behind his 
project. "We can already 
u>-;e the power generated by 
humans to power small 
di:vices," he added, refer- 
ring to the GPS system used 
by the military thai is pow- 
ered by special shoes that convert ihe energy cre- 
ated by soldiers' footsteps into energy that can 
power the device. 

However, the equipment offers more than just 
a cheap, easy and reliable source of power. Pan- 
dian has worked with the Tulane School of Med- 
icine to research the potential health benefits of 
the equipment. 

Research has suggested that encouraging chil- 
dren to play on the equipment can positively 
affect the child obesity epidemic in the United 
Stales. "Wc have talked to the [St. Tammany 
Parish] School Board and they are interested in 
purchasing the equipment for schools." Pandi- 
an said. 

Lecture series highlights evolution 

Chris Burcham 


Dr. H. Allen Orr of the Universi- 
ty of Rochester held a discussion on 
the origin of species yesterday. Orr 
was invited lo Tulane as the 1 7lh 
annual Edward Sturtcvant Hathaway 
lecture series. 

Hathaway, a former professor of 
zoology at Tulane, took initiatives in 
mosquito control, worked with William 
Pcnfound and published papers on 
Ihe ecology of Louisiana and lower 
Mississippi River basin wetlands. 

The discussion centered around 
the topics of species and adaptation. 

"The origin of species fi^m Ernst 
Mayr offered the Biological Species 
Concept." Orr said. "Basically when 
push comes lo shove, scientists are 
pragmatisls and want lo get things 
done. One of ihe things thai [the Bio- 
logical Species Concept] has done ts 
to inspire a great deal of work in the 
real world." 

His lecnirc also touched on bar- 
riers to reproduction, reproductive 
isolation and ways in which marine 
species mate. Orr discussed "Spcci- 
alion," a book that he co-authored 
about both plant and animal spccia- 

His talk also explained how spe- 
ciation happens through adaptation 

and other ways in which species move 
from their original type. 

"The genetics of spcciation remains 
a black box for geneticists," Orr said. 
"It's not because we're stupid or par- 
ticularly lazy. Doing genetics in the 
case of spcciation is basically just not 
able to be done. It's doing work 
between things that do not share 

In response lo adaptation and spc- 
ciation, he cilcd studies of very par- 
ticular flower species in which the 
flowers adapted lo the way that ihey 
are pollinated. One flower is polli- 
nated by a hummingbird, the other 
by the bumblebee. 

"There are a whole number of dif- 

ferent adaptations for these two that 
prevent cross-breeding," Orr said. 
"The data was painstakingly taken 
and the bumblebees always move the 
pollen lo the righi species, Hum- 
mingbirds never move pollen to the 
wrong species, this is amazing." 

The crowd of about 80 was most- 
ly students, with a few staff and fac- 
ulty members. 

"It's good that [Tulane] has lec- 
tures like this available for people 
who have this as their field of stud>'," 
Lisa Gold, a Ncwcomb College st^ho- 
more, said. 

"ll was . . . interesting for people 
who aren't majors," Liz Kraus, a 
Ncwcomb College freshman, said.

In game statistically even (five hits, one 
error each), one single play muttered more 
than all the others combined. 

Designated hitter Scott Madden's sacri- 
fice fly with one out in the top of the eighth 
inning scored freshman Brad Emaus, the 
winning run, and gave the Green Wave a 2-0 
lead with an inning and a half left. Tulane 
held on for a Tmal 3-1 victory. 

"It was a lough game for us. One thing I 
know our team can do is play in close games 
because we've played in so many this year," 
Head Coach Rick Jones said, "Fortunately 
we had [a great effort by J.R. Crowell and 
good defense] and that kept us in it and we 
got big hits."

LcBron James and the Cavaliers came 
inlo New Orleans with an 1 1 -game losing 
streak on Ihe road as they approached the 
end of what has been a miserable March 
for Cleveland. 

At first, the Hornets refused to be the 
cure for Cleveland's road woes as it shot 
52.8 percent (2S-of-53) from ihe floor 
through die first three quarters and held a 
78-63 lead going into the final period. 
The lead got as high as 17 points early in 
ihe fourth quarter, but Cleveland charged 
back into the game, forced overtime and 
cvcniually escaped widi a 109-108 victo- 
ry Monday night. 

"[We| cul down a 17-poinl lead and 
then we were ahead and I thought that 
was a big story in the game." Cleveland 
Head Coach Brendan Malone said. "We 
never gave up. I hope it's a springboard 
for what wc have coming up," 

"Collectively I think we just relaxed 
and tliought it was over with. In the NBA.

up 20 or 30. you lake it up to 30 or 40 if 
you can in the NBA because a 17-point 
lead in this league is nothing." 

James tallied 44 points, the second- 
highest point total of his career, on 16-of-

"It was time for me to shooi the ball 
and 1 feel like every time I shoot ihc ball,

As James' game elevated in the fourth

plummeted. Cleveland stormed back inlo

92-9! lead with 4:42 left. 

"You're up 17 poinis. you play good

TTie Engineering Student Council has been accused 
of irregularities in electoral procedures in their April 8 
election for Undergraduate Student Government Sen- 
ate positions. 

Engineering school sophomore Roben Murreil filed 
wo protests in reference lo decisions made by ESC Pres- 
ident Jonathan Bakke. Murreil alleges that Bakke and 
die ESC broke their own bylaws by extending the dead- 
line lo file candidacy papers and by allowing candidates 
who had not comptelcd the necessary paperwork to run. 

"I did not campaign heavily until reading the ballot 
on April 8 around 4 pm and finding four other names," 
Munell said. "1 was the only candidate lo turn in all need- 
ed paperwork by the [March 1 S] deadline." 

According to Murreil, the ESC extended the dead- 
line lo April 1 and did not meet to appro\c the extension 
until they had already announced it. 

"Bakke allowed two study abroad students to send 
in paperwork to run," Murreil said. "The only problem 
with that was that they didn't have the 25 signatures 
required by the constitution. They were invalid but still 
put on the ballot," Murreil said that he e-mailed his protest 
to Bakke after seeing the names on the ballot when he 

According to the ESC constitution. "To nm for the 
position of senator, the candidates must have filed a peti- 
tion signed by 25 members of the engineering student 
body in a place and by a date fixed by the council." 

Outgoing treasurer and new ESC senior representa- 
tive Robert Dolin believed that two articles of the con- 
stitution allowed for the council to extend the deadline. 
These articles slated that "All matters of interpretation 
of this constitution shall be decided by a majority of thu 
council," and "in all questions arising before the coun- 
cil, the simple majority of the votes cast shall decide the 
issue, except where otherwise staled". 

"To me this says that we can address things not slat- 
ed in the constitution," Dolin said. "Our council had 
agreed to change the dale the packets were to be turned 
in. We discussed extending the deadline before the elec- 
tion and the majorit>' of the council agreed to do so. One 
person had intended to run and we needed four." 

In e-mails obuined by the "Hullabaloo," Bakke, who 
refused to comment, defended his decision to Murreil. 

"It has been decided by ihe Engineenng Student Coun- 
cil, that we have an obligation to fulfill to USG and lo 
die engmcering student body to fill the senator position," 
Bakke said in his e-mail. "To meet this requirement the 
ESC reserves Ihe right to do as necessary lo make sure 
that enough people will hold these positions."

schools. The increases come on the heels 
of the rise from No. 47 to No. 43 for the 

Undergraduate school in rankings released 
earlier this year. 

The A.B. Freeman Law school rose 
1 5 places in the 2005 rankings which sur- 
passed last year's 1 1 spot drop, some- 
thing that still astounds the administra- 

We are a better law school this year 
than last, and we went up 1 5 places," said 

Lawrence Ponoroff, Dean of the Law 
School. "But we were also stronger as an 
institution last year then we were ihe year 
before when we went down 1 1 places," 
According to Ponoroff, this suggests 
that the U.S, News and Rankings are not 
a suitable substitute for prospective siu- 
denfs individual research of Tulane's 

"I think that most legal academics 
feel these rankings get way too much 
atteniion and arc not particularly reli- 
able or valid. To say 'wow' we went up 
and say it means something is nothing. 
When you go down you don't say il 
means something," said Admissions 
Dean Susan ICrenske, 

"This suggests that anyone who sub- 
stitutes U,S. News rankings for their 
own investigation and judgment about 
the suitability of a school's programs lo 
their particular educational objectives 
does themselves a great disservice," said 

Brian Testa, a third year law student 
agreed that while the rise of Tulane's 
Law School ranking brings it into a 
respectable position among the nation's 
top law schools it also demonstrates the 
instability of the rankings. 

"Tulane Law School has tremendous 
faculty, students and facilities, Testa 
said, and "to be declared a second-tier 
law school by U.S. News was wholly 
inaccurate, and unfair to the faculty and 
students here." 

In a message lo faculty and staff about 
the recently announced rankings. Pres- 
ident Scotl Cowen acknowledged ihe 
improvement but reminds students to 
lake the rankings with a grain of sail. 

"As 1 have staled many times before, 
these rankings are by no means the final 
word on a university?s quality," Cowen 
said. "However, we are always glad that 
in this, and other rankings, Tulane is con- 
sislenlly counted among the top univer- 
sities in the nation."

Slavery is generally associated with ihe 
antebellum Soulh. but many people forget il 
slill exists throughout the world. 

The World Affairs Forum at Tulane pre- 
sented Francis Bok, a former slave in Sudan 
since age seven. His discussion of the effects 
of slavery on the citizens of Sudan and the hor- 
rors he experienced was insightfijl lo the hun- 
dreds in attendance on April 7. "1 thought Fran- 
cis Bok was an incredibly gracious man and a 
riveting speaker, especially considering that 
he is only 26 years old and has only been speak- 
ing English for a few years," Newcomb Col- 
lege freshman Leah Weslon said. " As an Amer- 
ican, il is especially shocking to hear firsiHiiind 

about a praciicc most Westerners think li.i' 
been eradicated," 

Bok's fi^eedom ended the day rebel hors 
men stampeded through a market as he and I 
mother shopped. 

"One of the horsemen grabbed my hand and 
put me with the people who had been captured, 
Bok said. 

Slavery has been a persistent problem in 
Sudan ever since the breakout of the 1 5-ycar 
old civil war. The abduction of citizens is most 
ly conducted by the government-backed mill 
tia of the Baggara Tribe and aimed at the Dinkd 
tribe, which has tics lo the Sudanese People s 
Liberation Army, a guerilla faction from tht 
Southern regions of Sudan.

Tulane College seniors Justin 
Ouimct and Danny Hertzberg host- 
ed the first Unile for a Night Give 
Back Bash at the Twiropa nighl club 
April 7, All profits from the benefit 
pany were donated lo KJDsmART, 
a New Orleans-based organization 
dedicated to enriching the lives of 
public school children through immer- 
sion in the arts. 

"Wc figured the best way to do a 
charity event in New Orleans was to 
throw a party," Ouimcl said. 

"Justin and I jusl started talking 
one day. We were thinking about what 
we could do for New Orleans. We 
thought about the public schools here 
and looked into KIDsmART. Then 

we thought about ihc venue and looked 
into Twiropa." Hertzberg said. 

Ouimet and Hertzberg chose lo" 
donate lo KIDsmART after looking 
at many different options. 

"Wc chose KJDsmART because 
il is local and ihc money wc made 
would stay in New Orieans and help 
our public schools, which really need 
help. They are SOlh in the nation for 
education," Ouimei said. 

The seniors went lo KJDsmART 
board meetings and got lo know the 
charity's mission before getting their 
idea for a benefit party approved. 

"Our original goal was lo raise 
S3.000, Wc ended up with S4,700. 
and people arc talking about donat- 
ing more," Hertzberg said. 

Many Greek organizations on cam- 
pus co-spon.sorcd the benefit, includ- 

ing Alpha Epsilon Phi, Chi Omega. 
Kappa Alpha Theta, Kappa Kappa 
Gamma, Pi Beta Phi and Sigma Delta 

"We contacted the sororities first. 
Wc got in touch with the heads of all 
the sororiUcs and gave them tickets 
to sell. We wanted the girls lo get into 
it because wc knew the guys would 
follow, and we didn'l want a fral feel 
at the parly," Ouimcl said. "They did 
a great job, AEPhi sold the most and 
got their entire pledge class to come, 
and Pi Phi sold a lot too." 

Local business owners, particu- 
larly Twiropa owner Adam Sabroff, 
also helped make the event a success. 

"Adam was a [Sigma A Ipha Mu) 
at Tulane, and he thought the idea 
was really cool. He waived the $2,500 
rental fee, which was a big help," 

Ouimei said. 

Other sponsore included the Sake 
Calii. Jacques-lmo, and Abita. Twiropa 
was decorated with artwork from stu- 
dents in the program, 

"There were inleresting pictures 
on the wall done by the kids. It was 
nice to sec the work of young kids," 
Newcomb College freshman Caillin 
Williams said. 

The student- created decorations 
were a hit with attendees. 

"I liked ihe decorations. They went

Pope passes 

Students mourn passing of John Paul II 

wdoi mourners packs Si Peler's Square at the Vatican for 
mass for Pope John Paul U, Friday, April 8, 2005. 


ass I St an I news id i tor 

For many students at Tulane, 
Pope John Paul II, who led the 
worid's nearly one billion Catholics 
for 26 years, is ihc only pope they 
have ever known. 

As news of the 84-year-old pon- 
lifTs death spread all over the world. 
Catholic students gathered on cam- 
pus in Myra Rogers Chapel for a 
special Saturday evening Mass in 
his honor. Members of the Tulane 
community were quick lo conlributc 
their thoughts and feelings on John 
Paul's papacy. 

"As he traveled to so many coun- 
tries, ihis pope Irequently had huge 
meetings with university people, 
especially the students." Rev. Carl 
Truilcr, director of the Tulane 
Catholic Center, said. 

"(The pope] had a youthful spir- 
it which radiated lo young people 
and university students," Trultcr 
said, recalling how 88,000 young 
men and women packed the Super- 
dome when John Paul 11 visited the 
cily in 1987. 

The Very Rev. Val Mclnnes. 
founder and chair of Judco-Chris- 
lian studies at Tulane, said thai John 
Paul II WHS "affable and jocular" 
in conversations wiih people and 
enthusiastic about them as indi- 

Mclnnes also noted the pope's 
"gift of using overtures" in creat- 
ing dialogue willi other faiths, includ- 
ing establishing diplomatic ties with 
Israel, visiting Auschwitz, denounc- 

ing anti-Semitism as a sin, and 
emphasizing that Muslims and Chris- 
tians shared the same God and the 
same values. 

Catholics and non-Catholics 
grieved John Paul IPs death large- 
ly due to appreciation for the pope's 
advocacy for tolerance and respect, 

Paige Nathan, executive direc- 
tor of ihe New Orleans Hillcl at 
Tulane, expressed sadness and said 
that "ihc pope's outreach to llic Jew- 
ish community, including his visit 

10 Israel, was one of many unique 
and touching aspects of his life." 

Pope John Paul II is often cred- 
ited as being one of the mosl inOu- 
enlial personalities in the campaign 
thai brought about the fall of com- 
munism in Europe and an end to 
Ihe Cold War. 

Brian Horowitz, director of Jew- 
ish studies and associate professor 
in the department of Germanic and 
Slavic studies at Tulane, said that 
the pope, whose given name was 
Karol Wojtyla, was among the most 
brilliant intellectuals to come out 
of Poland. He was able lo inspire 
the people of that country and help 
Ihcm reject communism, 

Raymond Taras. a professor of 
political science at Tulane whose 
area of expertise is Cold War pol- 
itics, said that although John Paul 

11 backed anli-communist efforts 
in his own country, "he needed lo 
be persuaded that the United States

there with a lot of energy and 
determination," Head Coach 
Heather Van Norman said of 
Ihe team's performance at the 
Ole Miss Invite. "I'm really 
really excited for them." 

Asumnu, who is determined 
to run the fastest tOO-meier 
dash in school history, missed 
the record by a hundredth of a 
second. Her NC.\A Regional- 
qualifying 11.64 second, third-

In a season that seems to plod 
along from one disappointing loss 
to the next, many Hornets players 
have found motivation in playing 
for their chance lo slay in the 

Dan Dickau, for instance, has 
jump-started his career by com- 
pleting one of the most impressive 
turnarounds in recent memory. In 
die two and a half seasons before 
joining the Hornets, Dickau 
scared 283 points and handed oul 
124 assists. He eclipsed his scor- 
ing sum just 24 games into his 
New Orleans career and his assist 
total in 30 games. 

Likewise, Lee Nailon, who was 

saves Hornets from landmark misery 

cut by the Hornets during training 
camp in 2002, is also having a sea- 
son that will guarantee him at least 
one or two more in the NBA. The 
same player who started just four

has scored in double figures in 48 
of (he 62 games he's played this 
season, including II 20-point per- 

Neither of their contract values 
is affected by whether or not the 
team wins. Their value, along 
widi die rest of New Orleans' 
unprovcn players, is directly tied 
to their individual numbers. 

P.J. Brown, however, is a com- 
pletely different case. He bases 
his own value as a basketball 
player on whciher or nol he can 

help the team win. In the three 
years the Hornets have been in 
New Orleans, no player has taken 
more pride in the team and felt so 
indebted to the fans as Brown. No 
player has taken the losses harder 
this year than he has. 

"I jusl hurt." Brown said. 'I 
love the game. I love to compete. 
I love to win; so that hurl is 
always going to be inside of you 
[when you lose]." 

Brown's statement about loss- 
es hurting may not sound particu- 
larly revolutionary or profound, 
bui the truth is. many veteran 
players on losing teams do slack 
off. I'm not going to name names, 
but then again. I don't really have 
lo because you can always pick 
out ihe guys who cei ini.straicd 

and Stan playing for themselves 
instead of die team. 

"I don't know [why players do 
that]." Brown said. 'To be consid- 
ered one of the best 400 or so 
players in the world is an honor 
and a privilege. I'm thankful 
for the opportunity to be here. I 
jusl don't take for granted what 
we do for a living," 

After watching so many veter- 
ans on bad icams just pack it up 
and take it especially after 
the all-star break, the way 
Brown's nonstop hustle for a lot- 
tery-bound learn like the Homeis 
is unusual. 

"That's just the way I am." he 
said. "It's my job lo come oul and 
play and play hard. Thai's what 
I've always done in my career 

from day one. when I firsl got 
here. That's not going to change 
until the day I leave." 

At least early in the year he had 
some amigos to suffer along with 
him. Bul in December. Darrell 
Armstrong and David Wesley 
were granted their liberation in 
trades to Dallas and Houston, 
respectively. This left Brown as 
the lone veteran on a struggling 

But he didn't whine, pout, sulk 
or demand a trade. Instead, Brown 
assumed the role of leacher. 
While be had always been a siabi- 
Uzing factor in the locker room 
and a strong leader, now his job is 
to leach a bunch of castoffs des- 
perate 10 stay in the league how to 
come together as a team. 

"I think guys are playing hard 
and trying to give their be^L I 
think they're giving their effort. 
it's jusl alackof experience that's 
hurting ihem," Brown said, "Il 
doesn't come easy. ! don't care 
where you came from in college 
or where you came from overseas, 
to be in the NBA. to be a cohesive 
unit and win night in and night out 
is very, very hard. 

"Il just doesn't happen 

While the odier players' goals 
are lo play well enough lo make 
an NBA rosier next season. 
Brown's goal is to train ihe 
Hornets' young players into a 
championship squad.

mam itction edilor 

After almos[ three years of scarcli- 
ing, ihe A.B. Freeman School of Busi- 
ness has a new leader. 

Uiii%'CTsity President Scott Cowen 
announced Monday that Angela 
DeNisi, department chaimnan of man- 
agement at Texas A&M Univiirsitj'. 
has been named the new dean. 

"During [most students'] time ai 
Tulane there has been a search ongo- 
ing for a new dean," DeNisi said. 

'"Professor DeNisi is an extreme- 
ly well-respected scholar, indeed a 
star, aamong business school facul- 
ty," Cowen said. "He is Ihe perfect 
choice to lead our nationally acclaimed 
business school to e\-er greater heights," ' 

DeNisi is set to replace James 
McFarland, who has served as dean 
since 1988, McFarland will remain 
on staff as a professor. 

"The entire Tubnc community is 
indebted to Dean McFarland for his 
many years of service to the univer- 
sity," Cowen said. "His tireless efforts 
have increased both tlic physical size 
and national standing of the A.B. Free- 
man School of Business, making it 
one of the top business programs in 
the country." 

After an extensive nationwide 
search and multiple extensions of the 
inter\icw process, Tulane resorted to 
hcadhunters to find candidates. DeNisi

Engineers win canoe competition

The work of eight Tulane Uni- 
versity civil engineering students 
paid off April 9 when they placed 
first at the American Society of Civil 
Engineers Deep South Regional 
Concrete Canoe Competition. 

Team members Jenna Addis, Joel 
Dixon, Bart Grasso, Bridget Kelly. 
Courtney Miller, Krislen Moan, 
Josh Moore and Reilly Thompson 
spent the past year designing, per- 
forming analysis on and building a 
cement canoe. 

"None of us really expected to 
do that well," senior Joel Dixon said. 
"I still don't think it's sunk in that 
we're regional champions and going 
on to the national competition." 

Seventy-five percent of the total 
score is judged on engineering design 
and construction, the written report 
and oratory skills. 

The rest of the score comes from 
each canoe's performance in mul- 
tiple races that lest the canoe's speed 
and agility. The competition aims 
to challenge each team's mastery 
of engineering concepts they've 
learned in the classroom, their abiU 
ity to manage a large project and 
Ihe ability to work together as a team. 

Although the teams do all of the 

work themselves, each is pennitted 
to consult with a professional engi- 
neering firm or professor from their 

"Tulane doesn't have a naval 
engineering school, so the design 
process was difficulL We had to use 
an outside source," senior Bart Gras- 
so said. 

The Tulane team asked Bennett 
& Associates, L.L.C, a naval engi- 
neering firm located in New Orleans, 
for assistance, 

"As far as consulting was con- 
cerned, they helped us do the analy- 
sis and plan the outline design. Once 
we got that straightened out, the 
building was up to us." Dixon said. 

The team experienced a few 
mi.ior problems in design and con- 
struction while actually building the 
canoe, but the majority of problems 
occurred before thcbuilding even

The use of cement lo build canoes 
dates back to the early 1 800s, and

Although the announccmeni was

controversial one, 

"Dear brothers and sislcrs. after

As head of Ihe Congregation for the

as Pope John Paul's theological 
enforcer, Many who know him per- 
sonally describe him as shy and 
reserved, but his strict enforcement of 
John Paul's conservative views and 
his harsh silencing of several promi-

utation as a somewhat divisive figure.

Tulane's students have joined togedi- 
er in an effort lo raise money to aid in tlie 
cleanup ofSoutheastAsia following this 
winter's deadly tsunami. 

The Tulane Student Tsunami Funds 
Committee has worked for the past few 
months to raise over S3,000 to pay for 
water testing supplies and provide imme- 
diate relief with food and medical sup- 
plies. By the end of the fund-raiser, they 
hope to have over S5.000 and they are 
trying to eon\'ince the Graduate and Pro- 
fessional Student Association lo con- 
tribute an extra 55,000 to the total. 

Under the guidance of Carolyn Bar- 
ber-Pierre, student leaders from nearly 
every school at Tulane formed a com- 
mittee and laid out a flind-raising plan, 

"Student leaders from a number of 
schools have hosted small scale fund- 
raisers that have included tabling, sell- 
ing green ribbons and bake sales. Cafe 
Arabesque donated lOpercent of one 
day's revenue to the fund. At [the] Inter- 
national Festival uptown we will have a 
tsunami table with info and photos col- 
lecting donations." Sara King, a chair of 
die Tulane Student Tsunami Funds Com- 
mittee, said. 

According to King, the goal of the 
fund-raiser is not only lo gather money 
but also lo generate awareness of tlie dis- 
aster and its long- and short-term needs 
and work together as a school to respond 
to international needs. 

"1 knew that Tulane has a number of 
experts in related fields and that some 
work in the affected region," King said. 
"We were hopeful that by pulling togeth- 
er the expertise, care and resources of 
our faculty, sUidents and alumni we might 
have some positive influence." 

Other Tulane students and staff are 
carrying out relief efforts that are most- 
ly based in Sri Lanka, 

"There are a bunch of Tulane people 
involved, and then also the former pres- 
ident of Tulane, Professor Kelly, is now 
a professor in the Payson Center," Pro- 
fessor Sam Samarsingh said. "He visit- 
ed Sn Lanka in late January, early Feb- 
ruary, and he helped world vision lo set 
up its program," 

Dr. Samarsingh is currently working 
as a director ofa research institute in Sri 

"1 would say that Tulane actually, as 
far as the Sri Lanka program [goes], has 
done quite a bit ;uid of course on the more 
scholarly nscarch side [of relief]," Samars- 
ingh said. 

One of the alumni who is working in 
Sri Lanka is Jason Smith, who went to 
set up a tsunami collection center lo pro- 
tect the district surrounding Trincoma- 
lee, Brenda Barrett is now the programs 
manager for Ihc USAID project in Trin- 
comalee. She has been working lo raise 
funds for the tsunami relief programs 
with USAID. 

Ryan Sinclair, a School of Public 
Health and Tropical Medicine doclorial 
student, worked in the area doing water 
quality work research using solar water 
purification methods. 

Dr Englande, professor of environ- 
mental health sciences, and alumna Dr. 
Lisa Pratt worked in Thailand after the 
tsunami lo perform water quality assess- 
ments, carry out testing and train indi- 
viduals in water testing and data collec- 

Tlic students contacted lliese and other 
expert Tulane slaff, sludcnts and alum- 
ni, mainly from Ihe School ofPublic 
Health and Tropical Medicine. Although 
Ihc funds gathered by the Tulane Student 
Tsunami Funds Committee have not yet 
been distributed, they will cenainly be 
going to one of these Tulane-based efforts. 

"Rather than write a check to u huge 
aid organization, one through which the 
liinds may not go entirely and directly to 
serve affected people, we have contact- 
ed Tulane. . . faculty, alumni and students 
[hat have been doing work in the area," 
King said. 

King became interested in the tsuna- 
mi relief effori afierseeing Ihc media

Leading the Green Wave 
was senior Chris Wheeler. 
Wheeler finished die first day 
at even par. The second day he 
shot a I -over-par 73 and on die 
final day he shot 2 under par. 
allowing him to lie for sixth 
place at 1 under par. 

Another major factor in die 
Green Wave's solid start was 
sophomore Michael 

Thompson. Thompson fin- 
ished the first day with a 69. 
placing him fifth individually. 
Thompson then shot 74 on die 
second day and 75 on the diird. 
His 2-over-par finish put him 
second place on the team and 
tied for eleventh overall. 

Going into the final day of 
the tournament, Tulane trailed

Can't beat the Heat in 2005 

i/vrts fdtUit 

There arc two major themes around the NBA 
this year. 

First, dicre were some stunning coaching jobs 
diis year. Highlighted by Phoenix's 32-game and 
Chicago's 23-game improvement, six NBA teams 
have at leasi 14 more wins this sea.son dian last. 
Add Rick Carlisle's Pacers overcoming the 
Debacle in Detroit to make die postseason and 
George Karl transforming die NuggcLs and diis 
season has ihc deepest Coach of Year candidate 
field in recent memory. 

Second, some unique and dynamic 1-2 punches 
emerged. Interestingly enough, among die best 1-2 
punches are diose put togcdicr widiin die lost year; 
Philadelphia, Washington, Phoenix. Boston 
(somewhat). Houston and New Jersey. Over the 
last 20 years or so. the formula for a tide has been 
a strong 1-2 punch surrounded by reliable role 

But ihc one team not mentioned is the leader in 
bodi fields. 

The Miami Heat boasts not only one of the 
NBA's top coaches in Stan Van Gundy, who has 
masterminded the seamless cohesion of a very 
diverse group, but dicy also bring die most formi- 
dable 1-2 punch in almost a decade. 

"By far the best 1-2 punch in die league." 12- 
year NBA veteran P.J. Brown said. "The closest 
thing I've seen in die NBA. since I've been play- 
ing, was Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippcn. 
[Wade and O' Neal| are just unstoppable, and diey 
put so much pressure on you that there's not much 
you can do. 

"The only way dial I diink you can contend widi 
what they have is to ha\'c a couple other guys who 

match Uiclr inlcnsity at the onensi\c 

The pnoblcm for die rest of the 
league, however, is dial no team has 
the talent to matchup with O'Neal 
and Wade. Back in Los Angeles, 
when it was O'Neal and Kobe 
Biyant, no odier team had a tandem 
diat could keep up widi die Lakl•r^ 
eidier. That being said, the O'NtMi 
and Wade duo is even better than ih. 
pairing that won dircc straight chain 
pionships in L.A. 

Wade may not possess Bryani ^ 
scoring repertoire, but he is a betici 
all around player. His ability to \vork 
within die framework of the le.uti 
concept and his unselfishness an.' 
what set him above Bryant 

"[WadeJ's a fabulous player," 
O'Neal said. "We lake our lime on 
die court. Wc look at each odier. 
That's what being a great 1-2 punch 
is about." 

Addidonally, Uiis is a different 
O'Neal than die world has ever seen. 
Although his scoring average (22.9 
poinLs per game) is the second-low- 
est of his career, the true hallmark of 
O'Neal's season has been bolslcrinj: 
his teammates. 

"Both of us have the same goal in 
mind, and dial's lo help our team- 
mates get better." Wade said. "Wc know every 
night that we both have lo bring something on the 
offensive and defensive ends. We boih want to 
win. When you've goi two guys dial want to do 
[win) and want to make odier guys better, to me. 

The Experts Agree 


The indomitable tandem of Shjquillc O'NcjI and Dwyanc 
Wade is averaging 47 points per game. 

(blending! is die easiest thing to do." 

When Miami, fresh off an appearance in the 
Eastern Conference semifinals. ga\'e up Lamar 
Odom, Caron Buder and Brian Grant for O'Neal, 
skeptics said dial die Heat would have Wade and 
O'Neal but nobody else, Aldiough those dircc 
players could not mesh widi Bryant and 
make die playoffs, dicy did give Miami 
35,0 points and 21.4 rebounds per game in 
2003-04 - more dian O'Neal alone is capa- 
ble of. 

The "Hullabaloo" as.'^enibled an expert panel of si.x writers and two 
photographers who covereci the NBA this season, as well as 1 2-year NBA 
veteran P.J. Brown, lo predict the winner of this year's playoffs. The 
majority of the panel agrees that the Miami Heat will celebrate its first 
championship in franchise history this summer.

However, as the season has progressed. 
O'Neal showed that he has an invaluable 
asscU leadership. Miami really didn't have 
a strong supporting cast when they 
acquired O'Neal, but O'Neal has personal- 
ly developed one - as well as helping 
Wade Jump from good to grcaL 

With the nc«' and improved rosier, it 
took die Heat only 75 games to clinch die 
top seed in the Easlem Conference play- 
offs, and. because Miami spent die rest of 
die regular season preparing for die post- 
season, diis study will only include diose 
first 75 games. 

"We'll be focused when it comes time

Tulane Students Travel to Georgia to Protest 

Tulane University Amnesty International co-presidents 
Andrea Schklar (so., Newcomb) and Sarah Miller (jr., 
Newcomb) organized a trip to Fort Benning, Ga. for 
the School of the Americas protest. 
The School of the Americas (SOA), renamed the "Western 
Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation" in 2001, is a 
combat training school for Latin American soldiers, located 
at Fort Benning. According to protestors, the SOA, frequently 
dubbed the "School of Assassins," has left a trail of blood and 
suffering in every country where its graduates have returned. 
Protestors state that over its 56 years, the SOA has trained 
over 60,000 Latin American soldiers in counterinsurgency 

techniques, sniper training, commando and psychological 
warfare, military intelligence and interrogation tactics. 
These graduates have consistently used their skills to wage a 
war against their own people. Among those targeted by SOA 
graduates are educators, union organizers, religious workers, 
student leaders, and others who work for the rights of the 
poor. Hundreds of thousands of Latin Americans have been 
tortured, raped, assassinated, "disappeared," massacred, 
and forced into refugee by those trained at the School of
