House catches fire

Residents pet confirmed as only fatality

early Tuesday morning Lawrence firemen extinguished an unexpected house fire at 1216 Tennessee St. Lawrence policemen, firemen and paramedics occupied the Tennessee block from 12th to 13th Streets, keeping neighbors out of harms way.

Eric Leuthold thought the shouting he heard around 2 a.m. was only from drunken people coming home from the bars. But when he emerged from his apartment, he saw flames shooting up from his neighbors house. Mark Bradford, interim chief of Lawrence-Douglas County Fire and Medical department, said a call came in at 1:33 a.m., Tuesday to put out a fire at 1216 Tennessee St. The entire street was blocked with emergency vehicles responding to the flames that erupted from the back of the housing structure. The fire crew worked until nearly 4:30 a.m. to put out the flames. Leuthold said he saw three fire trucks spraying water on the fire with multiple hoses. The whole back side of the building was on fire, from top to bottom, the Lawrence resident said. Even the cop I was talking to said he was worried about it catching other houses on fire. Fortunately for neighbors, the fire did not spread to any other buildings. Bradford said most residents of the building were present

a fire broke out in a housing structure around 1:30 a.m., Tuesday at 1216 Tennessee St. Lawrence firemen manned water hoses until all traces of fire were gone and residents were in safe keeping. Officials did not leave the site until just after 6:30 a.m. at the scene soon after the fire started except for one person, who was called at her place of work and returned shortly. Misty Cox, of Lawrence, lives at 1206 Tennessee St. She said six people lived in the housing structure, which was converted into five apartments. Lynn Sander, Overland Park senior, lives at 1200 Tennessee St. and heard shouting and saw flashing lights. She went to the location of the fire to see what had happened. Everyone was standing outside the building in the alley. I saw one guy in his boxers holding a small glass case. I think it might have had frogs in it, Sander said. There was also this tiny lady with a bathrobe on, holding a cat and crying. Unfortunately not every animal made it out alive. Bradford confirmed one pet died, although he could not confirm what kind of pet it was. He said other pets were seen running from the dwelling. Leuthold said he thought it was one of the female residents dogs that had died in the fire. They brought something out wrapped in a blanket, and she just started crying, he said. Bradford said the cause of the fire was under investigation and would be determined sometime today. Edited by Alison Peterson

Students cant identify officials
Kansan staff writer

Chancellor, provost, associate vice provost: theyre all the same to Kelly Sanders. The Omaha, Neb., senior, said she was able to recognize titles of KU administrators, but she didnt know what they meant and couldnt differentiate among them. As long as they do their jobs, no one cares, Sanders said. But what is that job description? The provost is a top academic official who creates policies for the University. KU administration has a search on the way for a new provost to

replace David Shulenburger, who, on Sept. 28, announced he was stepping down at the end of Spring 2006. But in an unofficial The University Daily Kansan survey, 20 students were asked what their thoughts were on the provost resigning. None of these students knew who Shulenburger was or what he did. As provost, Shulenburger established the five-year tuition increase, and emphasized the combination of research and teaching at the University. Marlesa Roney, vice provost for student success, agrees with Sanders that students lack of knowledge about the provosts position is not a problem. Students dont really need to know who is running the behind-the-scenes action at the University because they are not directly involved with those officials.

Bicycle theft still a problem

By steve lynn
Kansan staff writer

Cyrus Beedles was ready to head to class three weeks ago when he noticed that his $600 bicycle had been stolen outside Oliver Hall. Beedles vented his frustration. It means I have to spend at least $200 on replacing it, Beedles said. The Lawrence freshman is one of 26 student-housing residents who have reported bicycle thefts Todays weather

outside residence halls since Sept. 12. Ten bicycles were reported stolen throughout campus during the 2004-2005 academic year. Residents say they want more security and protection of bicycles. Police say that security cameras at residence halls were not placed to watch bicycle racks, but that patrols had increased in the area. Fourteen bicycles were reported stolen to the KU Public Safety Office and the Lawrence Police Department between Sept. 12 and Sept. 27.

Chris Keary, assistant chief of the KU Public Safety Office, said the security cameras were placed to watch residence hall parking lots, but not bicycle racks. The use of cameras would be involved in the Public Safety Offices investigation, he said. He would not release specific details. Students should call police if they observe suspicious activity around bicycle racks, and use a u-lock or a thick cable to secure their bicycles, he said.

Friends and family at Nicole Binghams memorial service focused not on the tragedy of her death but on the beauty of her life, Tuesday. Bingham, Wichita senior, died Oct. 7 in the Boardwalk Apartments fire. About 400 people attended the memorial service, which was held at the Lawrence Free Methodist Church, 3001 Lawrence Ave. Nicoles mother, Nancy Bingham, delivered the eulogy. Nancy Bingham said that her healing process had been talking about her memories of her daughter. It pulls me out of despair when I share with the people who loved her, she said. Her healing process will continue when she returns home to Wichita, she added. Donna Bascom, Kearney, Neb., junior, and a member of Alpha Delta Pi sorority with Bingham, chose to play a song in remembrance of Bingham. The two shared a love for the song What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong. Bascom said Bingham made the world more wonderful. Luke Grover, Wichita senior, met Bingham in a political science class and they became quick friends. Grover said Bingham was a beautiful person to the core and was always a good friend to everyone she knew. He said her hugs

Kansan correspondent

Theater Manager-Kansas Union

How long have you been working at the Union? Ive worked here since the beginning of freshman year, so about a year and a few months. I worked a summer at my hometown theater as a projectionist and volunteer worker. What is a typical work day like? There is not any typical day. Some days Ill build a movie. Movies come in on six or seven reels and I put them all together and splice them into one big movie. It all goes into the platter system that makes the movie. It takes maybe an hour. Does work interfere with school? If anything, it helps me manage my time better. What is the best part of your job? Worst? The best part definitely is getting paid to watch movies. The worst part is every once in a while I have to work a late night on a weekend, sometimes until midnight or 1. Im here breaking down movies, which is basically the reverse of putting together movies, so we can ship them back to the distributor in Kansas City. We get movies mailed in every week. How can students find out about movie showings? Check the SUA Web site. Every Thursday and Friday night, almost, we have a regular feature film, plus French and Italian college flashback films on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights. What are some of the more interesting movies that have been shown? We just showed House of Flying Daggers Monday night. Foreign films are always interesting. What is your favorite SUA activity? Movie on the Hill, because the idea of watching a movie outside is just a cool concept. We also do Rocky Horror Picture Show on Halloween in the Union Ballroom. Last year, we had a band play and a bunch of other pre-show activities. People dressed up and we handed out prop packs to the audience. In part of the movie, everyone throws toast, so we do that, and theres a lot of audience interaction. How are the movies chosen? The SUA film committee does all of that. How many hours do you work a week? About 15-20, but thats between two jobs. Im also the Union Coordinator, or weekend manager. What is the cost of an SUA movie pass? About $25-$30 or $2 per movie. Sometimes we have free movies and events, too. What is the best part of having a campus job? Its convenient to be able to work on campus and its good pay and good people to work with. What is your favorite thing about KU? Interesting people. I like meeting new people and finding out what they are all about. Edited by Kellis Robinett

The Sunflower House, located at 1406 Tennessee St., has been in operation since the 60s. Sustanability and conservation are largely emphasized as an integral part of this student co-op at the University of Kansas. Interested students are welcomed and encouraged to stop by anytime for more information. This Saturday, an open house will be held at 2 p.m., followed by a Pot Luck Dinner at 6:30 p.m. September. Some of the residents who are moving out were evicted because they werent doing their jobs, Goldblatt said, which made things harder. And after a new 10-person coop, Ad Astra Per Aspera, opened Tuesday at 1035 Kentucky St., Sunflower House could be in financial trouble if it doesnt get more residents. Zack Falin, who resigned from the board of directors of the University of Kansas Student Housing Authority on Monday, said, Theres always an ebb and flow, and people tend to come and go in groups of two or three. But it is unusual for it to have that low of an occupancy. But theres still something attractive about the place: cheap rent, the bond of working together, the loose atmosphere. Cady said, I really dug on the idea of people all-for-one putting into it. I always dug it as sort of a gypsy frat. Edited by Becca Evanhoe

Museum guru faces theft charges

WICHITA Jurors are expected to hear opening arguments Wednesday in the federal trial of the man who turned a smalltown planetarian into a nationally recognized space museum, which houses such artifacts as


the Apollo 13 command module. Jury selection beganTuesday in the case against Max Ary, the former director of the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center in Hutchinson. Ary is accused of stealing items from the collection, but his attorneys have contended in earlier hearings the items actually belonged to Ary. He has pleaded not guilty to allegations that he made profits on

a number of artifacts, including ones on loan from NASA. He faces 19 federal counts ranging from mail fraud to money laundering. Ary has said he is looking forward to proving his innocence. Jury selection beganTuesday afternoon, with the trial to last about two weeks.The charges carry a maximum penalty of up to five years in federal prison

and a $250,000 fine on each of the wire fraud and mail fraud counts. He faces a maximum penalty of up to 10 years and a $250,000 fine on each count of theft and each count of transportation of stolen property. Two of the counts ask for the return of any property or proceeds Ary received as a result of the alleged crimes.

The recent fire at Boardwalk Apartments has raised concerns about the issue of fire safety. Pennington & Company, a Lawrence-based company, has teamed with a national organization to pursue the safety of greek houses here and across the country. While only 8 percent of greek houses nationally are equipped with sprinkler systems, greek houses at the University of Kansas are equipped with fire prevention equipment but still need renovations to prevent a fire. Pennington & Company, which raises funds for fraternity and sorority housing, is working with the Fraternity and Sorority Political Action Committee in Washington to approve the Collegiate Housing and Infrastructure Act. The bill would allow

devices in other parts of the house are not possible. When only 8 percent of our houses are sprinkled, we are just playing with fire at this point, he said. I get very concerned when we are housing 50 to over 100 men and women. One hundred percent of the houses at the University have sprinklers after a $30-million renovation addressed the issue, Alderdice said. They are some of the most upto-date greek houses and safe greek houses in the country, he said.

The bill would also provide other fire-related renovations for houses that were built as early as the 1920s. Laura Bauer, program director for fraternity and sorority life, said while the old houses provided a rich tradition, it also meant they needed improvements such as electrical wiring. She said she was taking a survey of the houses to learn what safety devices were needed. Debbie Pitts, chapter adviser for Alpha Gamma Delta, said the bill could contribute to the sororitys effort to build a new house. I think people would be a little more generous and increase their tax savings, she said. The bill currently sits in congressional hearings, which run through December. ONeill said he was optimistic the bill would pass. It would remove a major obstacle, he said. Edited by Tricia Masenthin

The Student Recreation Fitness Center has extended its hours from now until spring break. Now, the recreation center will open at 5:30 a.m., and close at 2 a.m., Monday through Thursday and close at midnight on Friday. Weekend hours will stay the same. The recreation center is so busy between fall and spring break, that extra hours of operation are needed, said Roger Heimerman, assistant director of facilities and membership services. Heimerman said he hoped that more students start coming late at night. He said he went to the recreation center Monday at 1 a.m., and only 10 people were there.

1a Captain Schuyler Bailey of the KU Public Safety Office said both officers patrolling the area and the use of the security camera system installed this semester have increased. The cameras are used to prevent theft but could not completely stop the problem, he said. Eric Meyer, Fairbanks, Alaska, freshman, said hes had enough of the theft around McCollum Hall. His friends bicycle was stolen last Sunday and the thief tried cutting the lock on Meyers bicycle, he said. Meyer said hes happy his bicycle was not stolen, but has learned his lesson. Now, he will take it up to his room, because he thinks security outside is inadequate. Andrew McKee, Lawrence freshman, said more could be done to prevent bicycle theft from occurring. Better security camera placement and more lighting and signs indicating the punishment if caught would deter criminals from stealing bicycles around the halls, he said. McKee also said authorities needed to do a better job of looking out for stolen bicycles. Bailey said officers could work only with the information thats provided to them. The process can be difficult when a serial number or owner applied number is not provided, he said. Sgt. Dan Ward of the Lawrence Police Department said that a city ordinance required pawn shops to provide detailed information on goods they purchased. Pawn shops comply with the ordinance, he said. Keary said the Public Safety Office has worked with the Lawrence Police Department and pawn shops, though pawn shops do not often buy bicycles. Louis Mora contributed to this story.

But he said they could definitely put forth more effort to connect with students who are not connected with Student Senate. But not being directly connected with top KU officials might not necessarily be a bad thing, said Frank DeSalvo, interim dean of students. Students generally pay attention to what is important to them at the moment, he said, and academic titles and job descriptions are long, boring and irrelevant to students. So its OK if they are clueless about the title of the provost, he said. Students are focused on their academics and their GPAs, DeSalvo said.

Study shows links obesity surgery with increased death rate

CHICAGO The chances of dying within a year after obesity surgery are much higher than previously thought, even among people in their 30s and 40s, a study of more than 16,000 Medicare patients found. Some previous studies of people in their 30s to their 50s the most common ages for obesity surgery found death rates well under 1 percent. But among 35- to 44-year-olds in the Medicare study, more than 5 percent of men and nearly 3 percent of women were dead within a year, and slightly higher rates were seen in patients 45 to 54. Among patients 65 to 74, nearly 13 percent of men and about 6 percent of women died. In patients 75 and older, half of the men and 40 percent of the women died. The risk of death is much higher than has been reported, said University of Wash ington surgeon Dr. David Flum, the Medicare studys lead author. Its a reality check for those patients who are considering these operations.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. For the second time in a week, Sprint Nextel Corp. has filed suit against affiliate Nextel Partners Inc. as their disagreement over the likely acquisition of Nextel Partners becomes increasingly bitter. Nextel WIP Corp., a subsidiary of Sprint Nextel, filed suit Tuesday in Delaware Chancery Court, demanding access to Nextel Partners financial records and other documents. A majority of the documents detail how Nextel Partners reached its forecasts for future revenue that were included in securities filings and public statements over the last three months. The suit also said it was looking to investigate mismanagement, breaches of fiduciary duty an/or misconduct. The suit gave no specifics of possible wrongdoing at Nextel Partners, and Walsh called those claims boilerplate language. Shareholders of Kirkland, Wash.-based Nextel Partners are expected on Monday to trigger a provision requiring Sprint Nextel to buy the company. Sprint Nextel already owns a third of Nextel Partners shares, but the two are sharply divided on what the remaining shares are worth. Nextel Partners says its agreement forces Sprint Nextel to pay a premium for the shares, while Sprint Nextel says the stock price is already inflated. We will respond in due course, said Nextel Partners spokeswoman Susan Johnston. We are focused on running our business and delivering the record results we announced this morning.

have been able to afford to pay prominent performers to come to the University, and in turn, it is unlikely that most of you would have been able to have these experiences. So the question is, how can you take advantage of the money you paid when you enrolled? The best way to do this is by attending these events that cost you little money (if any). Here are some suggestions: Every Thursday, SUA hosts Tea Time at the Union at 3 p.m. This gives you a chance to not only get free tea and treats, but its also a time to wind down and socialize with your fellow students. At least once a week, SUA

Traits indicative of perspective

In Tim Robbins Sept. 28 letter to the editor in the University Daily Kansan, he wrote, As a society, we ought to learn that culture and individual backgrounds account for the type of people we become it isnt sex, race or sexual preference. While I agree that we should look at diversity on the individual level, I also believe that we shouldnt abandon the group level. Dont you think sex, race, socio-economic status and sexual preference affect ones background? And, in many cases, greatly dene ones background and cultural upbringing? There are many individual variances and similarities across group lines and within groups. But we must also keep in mind that a black single mother living in the inter city has an entirely different outlook and daily life experience than say a white male here at KU like you or me. We have a lot we can gain from looking for diversity of group representation as well as the individual. Ethan Nuss Salina senior

Kansan should be less Pence-ive

Id like to respond to Ray Pences letter to the editor. I do not address women in [my life] - family members, friends, teachers, co-workers - as cunts. Its insulting that someone I dont know would write a letter to the editor assuming behavior on my part in which I dont engage. It would be just as illogical for me to assume that Ray Pence calls the thinking of everyone he meets downright stupid based solely on what he wrote to The University Daily Kansan. I am also frustrated with the Kansan for choosing to publish the letter. It seems Pences defamation of my character isnt important enough for the Kansan to contact him and ask him to revise his letter before printing it. Additionally, the content of Pences letter would indicate that he didnt even attend Mencias performance, and would therefore have no frame of reference no context in which to consider both Mencias comments and my letter. Pence misinterpreted the intention of my letter, which was to criticize the Kansan for both misquoting Mencia and for taking the quote out of context, thereby making it more offensive than it would be otherwise. I do not support or condone the use of the word cunt, and that was certainly not the intended message of my letter. I realize that by signing my name to the letter, I became part of the debate over Mencias appearance at the Lied Center. That, however, does not justify the personal attacks on my character written by Ray Pence and published by The University Daily Kansan. Kevin Hess Wichita senior

This is in reference to Gina Fords brilliant article showing great concern about the derogatory writings of someone who is a coward. In India, just like in America, communities exploit citizens based on their birth and discriminate in society. Because of democracy and the availability of education for a larger number of people, the parity of various communities has slowly come down. Let us strengthen the education facilities available to all communities including blacks, Hispanics, Asians and other South American communities, as well as poor whites who are as much discriminated as the others. In due course, there will be less discrimination. Subramanian Natarajan I just wanted to let Eric Jorgensen know that his column today, Shacking, the Great Escape was one of the funniest things I have ever read in the Kansan.

Casling joined the team after Eugster approached him while he was playing at the practice fields one day and asked him to join. He has been playing on the team for about a month, making him the newest member. The same relaxed attitude that Eugster had when creating the team carries over to his recruiting strategy. If youre going to commit, and youre going to come, and you want to, and youre not selfish with the ball, then I will talk to you, Eugster said. There is no official coach to bring this diverse group together. Kerem Sengun, Istanbul, Turkey, senior, said Eugster was the teams informal coach, organizer, defense player and captain. Euster replied, We know what we have to work on, so we all communally decide what we have to work on. Some players on the team, which has seven new members this season, complain that only the strongest players on the team regularly attend scheduled practices. Because all the teams members work or are students, the players have had difficulties coordinating schedules. They are attempting to restructure practices so more team members can attend and so the team can shift its focus to improving its game strategy. Currently, about a third of the team members show up for practices and play pickup games with whoever is there and wants to play against them. The team practices three times a week at the fields on 23rd and Iowa streets and plays games against the six teams in the open division on Sundays at Outlet Park. The open division is the leagues most competitive, and there are divisions for players older than 30 and for coed recreational teams. The Drinking Bastards have tied two games and lost two games so far this season. Six games are left, and Eugster hopes that a better practice schedule and stronger ties among the members will greatly improve the teams prospects. Edited by Katie Lohrenz


Going Glo-ball

Soccer is popular in nearly every country except the United States. Next to the Olympics, the World Cup is the biggest sporting event around the world. The KU campus is no exception to Americas low interest in soccer. The University is dominated by basketball and football, leaving international students with few options for channeling their soccer passion. Piero Eugster, Bogot, Colombia, senior, said from the time he was five years old, he has watched the sport and developed a liking for the running and contact aspects of the game. If youre from Latin America its almost national pride to be good at it, he said. Eugster is part of a local team called the Drinking Bastards. The teams colorful name is tied to the teams origin. The team includes players from Nepal, Saudi Arabia, Colombia, Turkey, Japan, Mexico, Brazil, Cyprus and the United States. It is also the only team in the Lawrence Adult Soccer Leagues open division that has ever had female players. About four-and-a-half years ago, Eugster, the only original member still on the team, and a few friends tried out for the KU Mens Soccer Club. They were upset when they didnt make the team because nearly all the players chosen were returning players from the previous season. They put together a team of their own, joined a local league and decided to call themselves the Drinking Bastards. The name was intended to be anti-establishment. When we were trying to figure out what name, we were frustrated because KU wouldnt take us, the club wouldnt take us, and I thought that this would be the most anti-organized team that they could be, Eugster said. Despite their name, he insists that the team plays sober. Although they do party, they only drink after games or much earlier, he said. The Drinking Bastards arent the only team with international players. Other teams, such as the Real Latinos and the Jambars, made up of mostly African and Middle-Eastern players, also compete in the open division of the Lawrence Adult Soccer League. Its just the local league, but half the teams seem to be made up of internationals, Tom Casling, Bristol, United Kingdom, senior and Drinking Bastards member, said.

Mangino left with few QB options

Kansas football coach Mark Mangino may have four players to choose from at quarterback, but in reality his options are limited. The Jayhawks banked on junior quarterback Adam Barmann leading the charge this season and were left with an IOU. Now, in his fourth season at the helm, Mangino is forced to turn to a fifth-year senior who is also a Terry Allen recruit. The failure of the Jayhawks to recruit another junior college quarterback as an insurance policy for Barmann has proven to be costly. The most successful quarterback of the Mangino era has been junior college transfer Bill Whittemore, who ranks fourth in career total yardage at Kansas. Senior Jason Swanson could be a nice supplement to the quarterback carousel, but this season he has worn a baseball cap more than a helmet. Last years prized recruit, freshman Marcus Herford, who some labeled as the KU quarterback of the future, is now a backup wide receiver. That has left Kansas with Brian Luke, a senior quarterback who showed some flashes of brilliance last season but has struggled this year. Next season, it appears that redshirt freshman Kerry Meier will have to shoulder the load. Using Oklahomas Rhett Bomar as a measuring stick, Meier will need time to learn a Division I system. Keep in mind that Bomar was the No. 1 quarterback prospect in the nation two years ago, but the redshirt freshman is currently dwindling at 11th place in Big 12 passing yards. The running back situation is also bleak for the Jayhawks next season. They will lose dependable Clark Green, who is currently seventh in career rushing yards at Kansas. The Jayhawks tied for second to last in the conference for the smallest number of running backs in a recruiting class. Angus Quigley was the only running back signed. Quigley, like Meier, is taking a redshirt. When looking ahead to next season, the Jayhawks backfield contenders will likely consist of junior Jon Cornish, freshman Gary Green, and Quigley. There is good potential in that group, but the Jayhawks need a star. Making matters worse, the Jayhawks will be able to sign only three junior college players for next season and the 2007 season because of self-imposed sanctions. Three junior college recruits would be the lowest total of any Mark Mangino recruiting class. With Kansas obviously needing immediate offensive help for next year, along with the losses on the defensive side of the ball, the three-junior-college-player limit will be devastating. Mangino has taken great strides in upgrading the talent level at Kansas. Nevertheless, because of the lack of junior college help this season and the restrictions for the next two seasons, the Jayhawks wont have the luxury of junior college transfers to back up Kerry Meier and the running game next season.

Sophomore guard Rodrick Stewart sat out part of last season after transferring from USC. He will be eligible to play for the Jayhawks on Dec. 16.

After a year, sophomore guard ready to play for Jayhawks

By Miranda lenning
itting in class, its hard for Rodrick Stewart to pay attention to what the professor is saying. Visions of himself in a white No. 5 Kansas jersey, throwing down a monster dunk in front of a packed Allen Fieldhouse crowd, flash in and out of his mind. These days, Stewart always thinks about basketball.


For someone in the prime of his college career, a year without playing ball is a long time. I think about it every day, just sitting in class or in my room, said Stewart, sophomore guard. I just doze off and think about when my time is going to come that I get to step on the court for the first time. That time will come when the Jayhawks tip off against Pepperdine on Dec. 19. The NCAAs transfer rule requires athletes such as Stewart, who trans-

ferred to Kansas from Southern California at the end of the fall semester last year, to sit out a full academic year. After sitting out the spring semester of 2005, Stewart can become eligible at the end of the fall semester. The last day of finals is Dec. 16. One year ago, Stewart went through the motions as a member of the Trojans basketball team. After starting 17 of 27 games and averaging four points and two rebounds his freshman season, Stewart said he got into a slump. He weighed his options in the offseason. Staying at USC meant he would get to be close to his

twin brother, Lodrick, who also plays for the Trojans. Transferring might give him the opportunity to start over again. Immediately after Stewart announced that he would transfer after the Trojans exhibition season, the recruiting began. Stewart visited Kansas for its game against St. Josephs on Nov. 23 and immediately knew he wanted to be a Jayhawk. I went home and talked to my dad, and he had watched Kansas and coach Self, and we decided it would be the best thing for me, Stewart said. Although it was difficult for Stewart to leave his brother, he

decided that it was best for both of them. I thought it would be good for me and my brother to split up and grow into two different people, Stewart said. Plus, this is what was best for me. I needed a school that was better fit for me. Stewart, who has been friends with sophomore center C.J Giles since the seventh grade in Seattle, already knew most of the guys on the team before he transferred. In addition to Giles, he had played ball with Aaron Miles and Mike Lee since he was little.

Junior college transfer Shaquina Mosley is a preseason Newcomer of the Year in the Big 12 conference.

Shaq wins award

Junior point guard Shaquina Mosley was named Big 12 Preseason Newcomer of the Year in a poll of the Conference basketball coaches. Mosley transferred to Kansas from Central Arizona Community College. Her team won the National Junior College championship last year. Mosley was named the Junior College/Community College Player of the Year. Kansas womens basketball coach Bonnie Henrickson said Mosley was initially worried about whether she would be able to fulfill expectations. I dont need her to live up to any title, Henrickson said. I need her to run an offense and work to be one of the best defenders we have. Mosley will share time at point guard this season with freshman Ivana Catic. Senior forward Crystal Kemp was also selected as preseason All-Big 12 Conference. Kemp is one of three seniors returning to the team. She said she was pleased at the talent of this years recruiting class, and that it would allow her to rest more. Senior forward Sophia Young, who plays for defending national champion Baylor, was the preseason Player of the Year.

Associate athletics director parking. He said the possible financial benefits of a game at an NFL venue was not the only factor in the decision. The game this year was not moved for solely financial reasons, nor will any future decisions be made only on finances, Marchiony said. The decision to move the game this season, Marchiony said, was because Kansas already had six home games at Memorial Stadium. He said the department at least had to try a game at Arrowhead to see if it was a good idea. The department would discuss the future of any other games in Kansas City with football coach Mark Mangino, University administration, fans and Lawrence city officials, Marchiony said. Kansas City Chiefs officials told Kansas they were willing to host a home game at Arrowhead every season. Marchiony said future games in Kansas City, however, would not include nonconference opponents. Because the football team does not play any big-name teams from the Big 12 South division, such as Texas or Oklahoma, for another two seasons, Kansas officials have looked to their fellow North division teams for a possible Kansas City match-up. Larry Keating, senior associate athletics director, said he

Kansas future at Arrowhead unclear

By Ryan SchneideR
Kansan staff writer

While Kansas Athletics Department officials declared last weekends game at Arrowhead Stadium a success, the possibility of any future games in Kansas City, Mo., remains uncertain. The department had set a goal of selling 50,000 tickets to Kansas first game at Arrowhead, and more than 54,000 attended the game against Oklahoma. The attendance figure, 54,109, would not be possible at Memorial Stadium, which seats about 50,000. Associate Athletics Director Jim Marchiony said any financial gains the department received from the game would not be known for several weeks. In the agreement to move the game to Arrowhead, Kansas received revenue from tickets, and the Kansas City Chiefs received revenue from concessions and

However, the stipulation was that both teams would play each other in Kansas City for two seasons. Keating said he found no teams interested in a two-year agreement, which would require both teams to move a home game off campus. Edited by Alison Peterson

lot. When I had to guard him, he was big freeze and I was baby freeze. It was just something that we joked about last year, so I thought it would be good if I got his number. Stewart struggled last year to adjust to being at Kansas, especially without his brother. He said Langford was influential in helping him persevere through the transition. When I got down here, it was hard for me because it was my first time being away from my brother, Stewart said. He hung out with me every day and made sure that I was OK. When I had problems, I would go to him and ask for advice. He helped me a lot. When his time comes, Stewart hopes to fill the shoes of Langford. At 6 feet 4 inches and 200 pounds, Stewart could be the most athletic player on the team. That became evident at Late Night when Stewart stole the show with an array of athletic dunks.

We all knew Rod was a good dunker, Kansas basketball coach Bill Self said. If he could become great defensively, he could really help the team because he is really athletic and hes tough. Stewart said he brought energy to the team. He prides himself in his defensive ability, but also said he had the opportunity to be a leader on the Jayhawks young team. I try to pattern my game after guys like Dwayne Wade, just guys that are real athletic, Stewart said. I love to play defense, and Im kind of a scrappy player on offense and defense. A lot of highlights youll see a lot of highlights. A second chance at life Last week, after a team workout, freshman guard Mario Chalmers could not find his chain. He looked everywhere for it. He asked everyone if they had seen it. The chain was nowhere.

I had it the whole time in my pocket, Stewart laughed. I just loved watching him look for it. Every day we are taking someones stuff and hiding it. Stewart is having fun playing basketball again. He is likely to be seen along one of his freshman teammates, his roommate Darnell Jackson or his best friend C.J. Giles. When the time comes to play, Stewart said he would give no less than 100 percent. He isnt concerned that he will be out of place once he becomes eligible, or that Self will already have his rotation set. Stewart said that is what makes him work hard. Im not distracted by those things at all, Stewart said. That is what makes me come out and just go as hard as I can every day and the coaches know that. Basically, for me this is like a second chance at life. Edited by Becca Evanhoe

Beckhams sue tabloid seeking libel damages

LONDON David Beckham and his wife, former Spice Girl Victoria, are taking legal action against a British tabloid that claimed their happy marriage is a sham. Beckham, the worlds most recognized soccer player, and his wife, the former Posh Spice, are seeking libel damages against the News of the World newspaper over an article that alleged the pair were maintaining a false image of a happy marriage to protect financial interests. The case will be heard before a judge and jury at Londons Law Courts. The couples lawyer said the Beckhams would argue they had been defamed.

Kidman photographer wont need DNA test

SYDNEY, Australia A photographer suspected of planting a listening device outside Nicole Kidmans home wont have to give police a DNA sample, an appeals court ruled Tuesday. Police alleged that photographer Jamie Fawcett, 43, was seen near the house on security cameras. The Waverley Local Court ordered Fawcett to give police a DNA sample to be compared with samples allegedly found on the device. Fawcett appealed to the New South Wales state Supreme Court, which held he couldnt be forced to do so with no evidence he violated a law.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2005: You might be stronger and more reactive to others than in previous years, especially if they step on your toes. You will define your boundaries more clearly, but at the same time, you wont take others so personally. You will make money hand over fist, especially through a relationship or partnership. You will have many people cheering you on. Your energy soars when youre with others. If you are single, several key people will make a difference in your life. To determine who will be your next sweetie, evaluate what type of relationship you want. If you are attached, your partner might need and want more say. Let him or her have it. TAURUS can be stubborn. ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH You are far more in control than you think you are or might like to be. Sometimes blowing your fuse feels good, but it ultimately might cause a bigger problem. Keep it together, Aries. By the evening, you will be able to talk about this problem. Tonight: Breeze around. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH You might charge like a Bull today, but it might not be because you are seeing red. You simply have a lot to do and the energy to do it. Be aware that not everyone has your power or strength. Think carefully before deciding about a money venture. Tonight: Wind down. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHH You are holding back a lot of strong feelings. How you choose to express them might be important, as you could be causing yourself unusual distress by holding them in. Talks late in the day allow you to reveal some of these emotions. Tonight: Keep smiling. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHHH If you want something or need to talk through a problem, there will be no stopping that process today. Your smile wins over many friends. You could find an associate to be pushy. Dont get offended. Listen to this persons message. Tonight: Early to bed. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHH You might be hard-pressed to perform to your highest ability. Someone could give you flak, but you need to clear out some important tasks. Dont question your judgment midway. It isnt the right time. Tonight: Work, then join a friend or two. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHHH Push to get more information. The more facts and opinions you receive, the better the choice you can make. Dont worry if a situation seems complex. If you detach yourself, it wont be. Break past normal thought patterns. Tonight: Explore different possibilities. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHHH You can count on a partner to sort through different options. In fact, you can lie back and just listen. You could be delighted by news or a new perspective. Let go and see what happens. Tonight: Togetherness. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Others might be too direct for your taste. You dont have to absorb what they say. It might be their perspective or their view. Think through what you hear, but dont respond. Why bother? Tonight: Make time for a chat with your best friend. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHH Your get-up-and-go could intimidate others. Realize that you are a whirling dervish right now, while others can barely clear out their work or projects. Help by pitching in when you can. Tonight: Slow down, please. Let others catch up to you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHHH You seem to be a fountain of ideas and creativity. Others might seek you out as a result. You might be put off by a difficult or testy loved one or child. Dont be. Let this person express his or her feelings without personalizing your thoughts. Tonight: Let your imagination choose. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH Rather than get into a minirumble with a family member, try rearranging the furniture or getting into a home project. At this time of year, be wise and get your heating checked. Be efficient. Tonight: Home is your castle. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHHH You might be more abrupt than you realize. You have a way of saying things or a general impatience that others pick up on. Guard against clumsiness. Please slow down and be careful. Tonight: Laugh with friends.

Senior linebacker Brandon Perkins helps up senior linebacker Nick Reid after Reid sacks Oklahoma freshman quarterback Rhett Bomar during the rst half of last Saturdays game. Reid had two sacks and 15 total tackles. He led the KU defense during the 19-3 loss to Oklahoma at Arrowhead Stadium.

Reid spurs KU offense


Members of the Kansas football team met senior linebacker Nick Reids comments without anger after Saturdays loss to Oklahoma. After the game, Reid said he wanted to get in a ght with the Kansas offense because of its struggles. Members of the Kansas offense, including sophomore tight end Derek Fine, are using the comments for motivational purposes. For me, that makes me just want to play harder, Fine said. That is the kind of attitude that I want to take toward the game. Nick just wants to win; whatever it takes to motivate everyone to play. Fine has 10 catches on the year for 119 yards. He said he felt bad for the defense, and it would not be necessary for Reid to apologize.

Thats probably the most frustrating part letting down the defense when they are playing so well, Fine said. I feel like we really have to pick up the game. The Kansas offense had 97 yards of total offense against Oklahomas 306 yards last week. The Jayhawks have not scored a touchdown in nine quarters. It is one thing that we are not producing, but one of the biggest parts for me is that we are not winning, and we are not producing for our defense, Fine said. They give us good eld position. We need to be able to capitalize on that and score. Kansas football coach Mark Mangino said he had no problem with Reids comments either. He was a little frustrated, Mangino said. I dont find offense to that. He is not going to do that every week. I think in retrospect he thought about it, and he realizes that

he shouldnt have. Senior wide receiver Mark Simmons said he had never been associated with an offense that struggled to score points in back-to-back weeks. This is a rst for me. Its something that I have to go through, and I think we are going to be ne on offense, Simmons said. Extra Points: Mangino named junior cornerback Charles Gordon the teams defensive player of the week. Gordon had two interceptions against Oklahoma. Mangino also named junior running back Jon Cornish special teams player of the week and sophomore tight end Derek Fine offensive player of the week. The Big 12 Conference announced that the Oct. 29 game against Missouri would begin at noon. The game will not be televised. Edited by Becca Evanhoe
