Forget the X-Box 360 and Play Station
3 — old-school video games and systems
are making a comeback. In the past year,
the popularity of the classic systems and
games, such as the original Nintendo, have
seen a surplus of sales at stores, online and
at garage sales.
Jean Mutt, owner of Game Nut
Entertainment, 844 Massachusetts St., said
the store specialized in restoring the classic
systems. He said the games were becoming
popular again because consumers wanted to
play the games they grew up with.
Four burglaries and two violent
incidents were reported last year dur-
ing the week of fall break. Most of
the crimes happened in areas near
campus.
Jonny Jines, Overland Park senior,
was one of the victims. He was sit-
ting in his house near the 1300 block
of Tennessee Street last year when a
group of 10 men entered his house and
damaged a TV, coffee table and other
property with baseball bats. Other stu-
dents reported stolen laptop comput-
ers and batteries at about the same
time.
Capt. Schuyler Bailey of the KU
Public Safety Office said that usually
fewer crimes occured during fall break
because not as many people are in
town.
He gave tips to prevent thefts and
break-ins while students are gone. He
said students should lock their doors
and windows, keep a light on, have
a friend check on their house and
lock their cars when packing to leave
town.

University of Kansas officials have com-
pleted the investigation into private docu-
ments sent last month to local newspapers.
The math department now has 14 secure
bins which can only be opened by a shred-
ding company.
The math department is now includ-
ed in the University’s existing contract
with the shredding company. Currently,
departments at the University can decide
whether they want to do their own shred-
ding or hire a consultant and be added to
the contract.
Jack Martin, deputy director of University
communications, said that a University-
wide contract was something the adminis-
tration was “definitely exploring.” The new
bins have an opening at the top where mate-
rial that needs shredding can be inserted.
Only the shredding company can unlock
them.
“We are using this opportunity to edu-
cate people on the importance of disposing
private documents,” Martin said. “It takes a
constant vigilance. Everyone, everyday has
to be aware of this for it to work.”
Faculty in the math department have
received information about document
protection and the disposal policies. The
department has also changed the setting
on its fax machine so that an image of the
document being sent will not appear on
the confirmation sheet.
Fax confirmation sheets
were the most common
documents that were
leaked.
“In some instances,
the documents were
not University-relat-
ed, but were personal
documents that people
brought into work and
then were discarded
by the individuals,”
Martin said. “In other
instances, with class rosters and stuff,
the documents were not properly dis-
posed of.”
Martin said vice provosts, deans, directors
and chairs of each unit of the University have
been asked by Provost Richard Lariviere to
provide updates on steps they have taken to
protect the privacy of documents. Lariviere
has not set a deadline for the updates, Martin
said. Privacy officials will also make unsched-
uled visits University-wide to observe how
units are disposing of material.
“The privacy office wants to make sure
they get a good feel for the practices people
are following now and where they need to be
improved,” Martin said.
Martin said all of
the students and facul-
ty members mentioned
in the materials had
been notified either
by phone or mail. The
most common infor-
mation leaked was
students’ identifica-
tion numbers. Martin
said students had been
given links to resourc-
es on how they could
protect themselves from misuse of this
information, and that they could call Jane
Rosenthal, KU privacy officer, if they had
further questions. Martin said Rosenthal
had already spoken to several students.
Martin said the committee that investi-
gated the matter did recommend an appro-
priate disciplinary action to be taken, but
that the state law prohibited him from dis-
cussing personnel or disciplinary actions
further.
Math department employee Gloria
Prothe was implicated in a letter mailed
to The University Daily Kansan for not
disposing of materials correctly. She said
she had not seen the final report yet, and
had not been contacted by the University
regarding actions that would be taken.
Prothe did meet with the committee during
the investigation to discuss her methods of
disposing materials.
Martin said the most important change
would be making the campus aware that this
was an everyday issue.
“Part of it is having policies, but the big-
gest part is making sure people know and
follow the policies,” Martin said.
The investigation was in response to pack-
ets that The Kansan, The Kansas City Star
and the Lawrence Journal-World received
on Sept. 18. The packets contained a cover
letter explaining that the documents were
found in recycling bins in the math depart-
ment and dumpsters behind Snow Hall.

University of Kansas food services will
no longer be serving doughnuts and bagels
from Joe’s Bakery after the bakery closed on
Friday.
The bakery’s food was served at the
Underground, Pulse Café and several other
campus locations. Grant Turner, a Pulse
employee, said that the food services were
now looking for a new company to provide
doughnuts.
Joe’s Bakery has been a part of University
tradition for years, and was also a stop on the
Kansas version of Monopoly.
Joe’s Bakery closed Friday when the owners decided
they weren’t making enough money even after students
came back to school this fall. The locally owned bakery,
616 W. 9th St., frst opened in 1952.

Students try for record
with 180 Twister mats
FARGO, N.D. — With lots of
stretching and reaching toward
blue, red, yellow and green
circles, some 450 high school
students played Twister on 180
mats in what they hope will set
a world record for the largest
Twister game board.
Sunday’s night attempt took
place during a conference held
over the weekend by North
Dakota DECA, a high school busi-
ness club.
The students won’t know for
sure until ofcials at Guinness
World Records review a video of
the attempt.
The mats formed a Twister
board measuring 4,699 square
feet. The current record was set
in April 2005 in the Netherlands,
at 2,453 square feet.
Missouri donut thief
could go to jail for crime
FARMINGTON, Mo. — It’s a
hefty price for a pastry: A man
accused of stealing a 52-cent
doughnut could face time in jail.
Authorities said Scott A.
Masters, 41, slipped the dough-
nut into his sweat shirt without
paying, then pushed away a clerk
who tried to stop him as he fed.
The push is being treated as
minor assault, which transforms
a misdemeanor shoplifting
charge to a strong-armed rob-
bery with a potential prison term
of fve to 15 years. Because he
has a criminal history, prosecu-
tors say they could seek 30 years.
“Strong-arm robbery? Over
a doughnut? That’s impossible,”
Masters said from jail. He admit-
ted that he took the pastry but
denied touching the employee.
Farmington Police Chief Rick
Baker said state law treated the
shoplifting and assault as forcibly
stealing property. The amount of
force and value of the property
doesn’t matter.
“It’s not the doughnut,” Baker
said. “It’s the assault.”

Jonny Jines found out the hard
way not to let random people come
to his parties.
Last year from Oct. 7-14, the
week of fall break, his house was one
of four students’ houses that were
burglarized or damaged. Two other
violent crimes occurred near cam-
pus during the same period.
Students can take safety precau-
tions to ensure they won’t fall victim
to the same crimes this fall break.
Jines, Overland Park senior,
was sitting in the family room of
his house near the 1300 block of
Tennessee Street with two of his
roommates at about 10 p.m. on Oct.
9 when a group of men entered his
home. Several people had been at the
house two days earlier for a party.
Jines and his roommates didn’t know
some of the guests.
“A lot of people would walk by,”
Jines said, “and we’d allow them to
come in and drink.”
A group of men who Jines didn’t
know got in a fight with another
group at the party. Jines said he
and his roommates weren’t involved.
That didn’t matter to the 10 men
who entered their house wielding
baseball bats Oct. 9.
The men who entered his house
were from the group who had been in
the fight outside his house two days
earlier, Jines said. The men destroyed
their TV, coffee table, kitchen table
and other property. One of Jines’
roommates was injured.
“It wasn’t our fault,” Jines said,
“but they came to our house and
retaliated. You just have to be more
careful to know who you’re inviting
to your parties.”
Within the same 24-hour peri-
od, a Lawrence man reported get-
ting beaten up and robbed near the
1200 block of Louisiana Street, and
two armed burglars broke into and
robbed a house near the 1300 block
of Tennessee Street.
Once fall break started, the crime
didn’t stop. KU students living on the
900 block of Missouri Street reported
the theft of three laptop computers val-
ued at $6,000 on Oct. 12. A female KU
student reported that a man pushed her
to the ground and touched her improp-
erly near the 1200 block of Louisiana
Street the same night.
Another KU student reported the
theft of a laptop and wrist watches
from a house in the 900 block of
Emery Road a day later. Those stolen
items were valued at $1,000.
Last year’s spike in serious crime
was abnormal. Crime usually goes
down during breaks because fewer
people are in town, said Capt. Schuyler
Bailey of the KU Public Safety Office.
He also said that property had been
stolen from empty University class-
rooms in previous years.
Bailey gave a few easy tips to
prevent theft, starting with remem-
bering to lock doors and windows.
He also recommended leaving lights
on or buying a timed light, and ask-
ing a friend who would be in town
to check on your house while you’re
gone. Finally, he said students should
lock their doors while they move
back and forth between their house
and car as they pack.
“It doesn’t take a thief a long time
to grab something and walk away,”
Bailey said.

It doesn’t take a time machine
for students to relive their child-
hoods. Vintage video game systems
that dominated the ’80s and ’90s are
becoming a hot commodity among
students.
Game Nut Entertainment, 844
Massachusetts St., offers the older
systems and games fully restored.
Jean Mutt, Game Nut owner, said
the store carried
a variety of older
systems, games
and accessories.
“We abso-
lutely sell a lot of
the older systems
and games,” Mutt
said. “The most
popular tend to
be the original
Nintendo, Super
Nintendo and
Sega Genesis.”
Mutt said the classic video game
systems were popular because the
young men who were the original
consumers of the systems have now
grown up and may want to relive
their childhoods.
Wake Mitchell, Baldwin City
senior and a game enthusiast, said he
had more than 20 gaming systems,
including the Atari 3600, Super
Nintendo, Sega Genesis and the
original Nintendo, and more than
2,000 games for all of his systems. He
said he found most of them at garage
sales or online. He said the games
were the reason the vintage systems
were becoming more popular.
“Old systems are popular today for
numerous reasons, the main being
nostalgic value and the quality of the
games,” Mitchell said. “For instance,
the Super Nintendo has countless
games that are, to this day, unrivaled
in quality of storyline, music and
overall gameplay. New games tend to
be far less inter-
esting as a whole
than many clas-
sic games.”
In addition
to the oppor-
tunity to relive
childhood pas-
times, classic
video game sys-
tems also offer a
much more rea-
sonable price for
a college student
than newer game systems. A new
Playstation 3, the latest video game
console to be released, typically costs
$499.99, and the cheapest price for
a used PlayStation 3 on eBay as
of Monday was $304.99. New PS3
games can be purchased for $50 per
game.
Nintendo’s Web site acknowl-
edges the popularity of its older
gaming systems, but the company
has stopped producing them. The
company encourages those want-
ing to purchase the older systems
and games to visit pawn shops and
garage sales, similar to Mitchell.
Mitchell said the vintage systems’
lower prices made the systems and
games much more desirable for stu-
dents because in most cases, they
could get more for their dollar.
“The price of one PS3 game could
get someone 75 Super Nintendo
games on a good day,” Mitchell said.
“You’re also able to put together a
collection for a lot less cash than ever
possible with newer games.”
Mutt said older systems and
games were typically cheap, but it
depended on the market value of
a system or game. He said he set
his prices by checking with online
sources such as eBay to determine a
fair price for customers.
Jaxson Peters, Transylvania,
Romania, junior, said he had owned
a Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis
since they were released in the early
‘90s. He said the vintage systems
and games were just another college
trend.
“I think they’re popular because
they’re like any other retro fad and
seem to come back in style several
years later,” Peters said.

Food services on campus are
no longer carrying food from Joe’s
Bakery’s after the bakery closed on
Friday.
Joe’s provided doughnuts and
bagels to The Underground, Pulse
Café and several other locations
on campus. The bakery has been
a part of Kansas tradition for years
and was even included as one of
the stops on the Kansas version of
Monopoly.
H a l e y
Waldschmidt,
Kansas City,
Mo., sopho-
more, who
often bought
Joe’s bagels at
the art depart-
ment, said peo-
ple there were
mad that bagels
weren’t avail-
able right now.
“That’s what everyone would
look forward to,” Waldschmidt
said. “The art department
doesn’t really have good break-
fast food, so that’s pretty much
all we eat.”
Grant Turner, Topeka junior
and Pulse staff member, said food
services was now looking for a new
company to provide doughnuts to
the café. He said he had heard stu-
dents asking about the doughnuts
on Monday.
“They had a great tradition,
serving a quality product,” Turner
said. “My mom used to get Joe’s
Doughs.”
Haley Masterson, Manhattan,
Kan., sophomore, said she par-
ticipated in Joe’s Run during Hawk
Week. For the run, hundreds of
students from the scholarship halls
and residence halls went to Joe’s
Bakery at midnight.
“I wasn’t aware that it was going
to close,” Masterson said. “It’s pret-
ty sad.”
Ralph Smith, the son of
Joe Smith, who founded Joe’s
Bakery in 1952, still owns the
property and the trademark to
the name. He sold the business
two years ago, and the current
owners have been running Joe’s
for the past year. Smith said
that the current owners would
probably auction off the equip-
ment, and
he wanted to
give someone
the possibil-
ity of also
buyi ng the
name and a
lease for the
property.
“I too would
like to see it
stay there,”
Smith said.
“We just need
to find someone with the talent to
make it grow.”
Smith said he had no inten-
tion of going back to the busi-
ness, but that maybe in 10 or 15
years his children would want
to use it.
Jennifer Larson, an employee
of Jensen Liquor, which was next
door to Joe’s Bakery, said that she
didn’t think that the current bak-
ery was as good as it was before it
changed owners.
“The original Joe’s was a staple,”
Larson said. “Anytime there is a
management change, though, you
can’t be sure if a business will
last.”
Joe’s Bakery is owned by Don
and Rebecca Hall. The Halls could
not be reached for comment.

Constitution Day deserves more recognition
It celebrates the most important document in American history, yet no one knows about it
drawing board
MAX RINKEL
ben cohen
Francesca chambers Q
uick, when is Na-
tional Talk Like a Pi-
rate Day?
Sept. 19, of course. The
Underground gave people dis-
counts that day if they threw in
an “avast” or “yar” while paying
for their food. How about Hal-
loween? Oct. 31, the day we
used to put on cheap costumes
and not only received candy
from strangers, but in fact de-
manded it. Now how about this
one: Constitution Day. I admit, I
didn’t know before this year that
it was Sept. 17, let alone that it
even existed. Of all the things
we celebrate, the document that
basically lays out everything
that distinguishes America from
the rest of the world should be
at or around the top of the
list. So why, if it has its own
federal holiday, do so few
people know about it? The
Dole Center did a decent job
of publicizing various Consti-
tution Day-related events this
year, which helped a bit, but
that was all. No “Happy Con-
stitution Day” cards, no mas-
sive clearance sales down at
the nearest strip mall, noth-
ing like that.
Let’s look at the Constitution
for a moment, shall we? It’s an
old, but still popular, document
essentially saying the govern-
ment either can’t do something
to people, or must do some-
thing. The First Amendment
grants a number of things that
we sometimes take for granted.
Freedom of speech lets us criti-
cize our government in ways
many civilizations throughout
history would consider absurd,
making this democracy that
much more legitimate, even if it
does also allow everyone from
Ann Coulter to Ward Churchill
to spew out verbal garbage day-
in and day-out. That one amend-
ment also gives us a free press,
so that thoughtful, intelligent
columnists can try to convince
everyone that what they think is
important on a biweekly basis.
It also lets us freely exercise reli-
gion, but doesn’t say which one
we have to practice. Flying Spa-
ghetti Monster enthusiasts, this
one is for you.

Continue perusing the docu-
ment, and look what else you’ll
fnd. Need to feel more manly?
The Second Amendment lets
you own a gun! Got a skel-
eton in your closet? The Fifth
Amendment makes it awfully
diffcult for people to make you
let it out. In fact, thanks to the
Fourth Amendment to the Con-
stitution, fnding out that closet
even exists is a real chore. The
Constitution guarantees that
women and minorities can vote,
and that the people they vote for
can’t overstay their welcome.
People do still argue over
some aspects of the document.
Should common decency take
precedence over freedom of
speech, for instance? Or is the
Second Amendment even nec-
essary anymore, with citizen mi-
litias basically being a thing of
the past? One amendment, the
18th, which prohibited the sale
and consumption of alcohol,
was negated by the 21st. The fact
that this happened over 70 years
ago and there haven’t been sub-
sequent changes like it suggests
that most of the Constitution is
acceptable, but questions will
probably linger for years about
its fuidity, and how literally
much of it can be interpreted.
Now that this rejected “School
House Rock” sketch is com-
ing to a close, let’s take another
look at the question. What more
convincing do people need to
recognize a day dedicated to the
thing that has shaped American
society as it has developed over
the last 219 years? Increased
publicity? Getting the day off
from work? Jerry Bruckheimer
movies? Maybe tell kids that the
Preamble will slide down their
chimneys at night and put free-
dom in their stockings. Well, no
matter. After all, there’s almost a
year to fgure something out.

Campus bus system in
need of improvement
Clustered vehicles and missed stops both
contribute to an inefcient KU on Wheels
D
espite the University’s
effort to fx last school
year’s inadequate bus
system by merging it with the
Parking and Transit department,
the system is still fawed.
I know that there were sever-
al students and faculty who de-
voted their summer to trying to
perfect the system by changing
the company that they contract
the buses through, and I am not
trying to take anything away
from that achievement. The
University needed more control
of the bus system, and it’s nice
to see that a new bus, one that
goes behind the Union, in front
of Spencer Art Museum, and to
the Student Recreation and Fit-
ness Center was added to the
system. But it was the means of
improving the bus system, not
the end.
One of the major problems
students had with the bus system
last year was the buses got so
off-schedule that they clumped
together and were all going the
same direction at the same time.
This was perceived as a problem
of not enough buses, and that
if we had more buses then we
would have enough to go both
directions. This year, KU on
Wheels has blamed accidents
and route changes caused by the
longer buses for the scheduling
problems.
But those problems are clear-
ly not the sole cause of the bus
clusters, considering the prob-
lem was occurring last year be-
fore the University bought the
new buses and it is still occur-
ring. And adding more buses to
the already crowded system does
not make sense and would be a
bad fnancial decision. Spacing
out the buses the University al-
ready has would solve problem.
It’s understandable that a bus
driver will drive by a stop if there
is no one there; riders appreciate
this—we are trying to make it to
class on time. But it is because
of that the buses get off sched-
ule and end up in a cluster, and
very few drivers make the effort
to move away from the pack of
other buses.
Those bus drivers who are
cognizant of the schedule
usually park for a few min-
utes to try to get back on
schedule, and put some space
between themselves and the
other buses. However, they
rarely remember to mention
to incoming or current rid-
ers where they are going to
park, making students late for
class.
Because the buses are mobile,
the only reasonable solution
is to train bus drivers how and
when to separate themselves,
where to park and the proper
way to notify students of their
decision. When there is more
than one bus going to the same
location on campus within one
minute of each other when there
is not a crowd of students wait-
ing, drivers should be allowed to
use their judgment and park to
space themselves out.
Students’ other main concern
last year was that there were not
enough buses going to places be-
sides McCollum and GSP; more
students live off-campus than
at those dorms. KU on Wheels
has tried to fx this problem by
sending buses that usually stay
on campus to other locations
during peak times of day. But
the problem is that apartment
complexes like The Reserve
house just as many students as
the dormitories. However the
dorms have more buses going
back and forth to them no mat-
ter what time of day it is.
The large apartment com-
plexes and other large off-cam-
pus bus stops need to either be
given just as much priority as
the dorms, considering those
students paid just as much for
their bus pass as those at the
dorms did, or KU on Wheels
should negotiate with apartment
complexes to have more private
buses like the Legends bus.
These bus issues may seem
petty compared to other issues
like Darfur, but students spend
$140 on a year-round bus pass
just so they can ride a bus a cou-
ple blocks twice a day. They de-
serve service at the same level.
It’s October and midterms are
on the horizon. And if I had to
grade the new bus system at that
time, I would give it a C+.

CARSON CITY, Nev. — With
winter closing in, efforts to find
aviator Steve Fossett have dwindled
— along with hopes that his proven
ability to cheat death enabled him
to survive a plane crash in the rug-
ged desert of northern Nevada.
More than a month after he left
for a short flight, no one has found
any trace of him, and authori-
ties have suspended the search,
although some private efforts
financed by Fossett’s friends and
family continue.
“My gut feeling is that he didn’t
survive the impact. It’s so unlike-
ly,” said Maj. Cynthia Ryan of the
Nevada Civil Air Patrol. She said if
Fossett were alive but too injured
to walk, he would have tried to sig-
nal searchers in some manner.
“He’s not the kind of guy to just
sit and wait for help to show up,”
Ryan added.
Lyon County Sheriff Allen
Veil said Fossett’s disappearance
remained under investigation as a
missing-person case, and authori-
ties were not prepared to presume
the aviator was dead.
“We will try to come to a con-
clusion, but we’re not there yet,”
Veil said.
Fossett, 63, had previously sur-
vived a nearly 30,000-foot plunge
in a crippled balloon, a dangerous
swim through the frigid English
Channel and hours stranded in
shark-infested seas.
Fossett, who made millions as
a commodities broker in Chicago,
also completed the Iditarod sled-
dog race, scaled some of the world’s
best-known peaks, sailed and flew
around the world, and set more
than 100 aviation and distance
records.
Fossett’s friends are still looking
for him, flying out of hotel mogul
Barron Hilton’s sprawling ranch,
about 80 miles southeast of Reno.
That’s where Fossett and his wife
had been staying on Sept. 3, when
he took off alone to scout possible
locations for an attempt to break a
land speed record in a rocket-pro-
pelled car. The cost of the private
search has not been disclosed.
“Only because of Steve’s char-
acter do we hold out hope,” Hilton
spokesman Pat Barry said.
At one point, more than 40
CAP, military and private planes
and helicopters were aloft over an
area that covered 20,000 square
miles, and scores of searchers went
on foot into deep, brushy canyons
looking for Fossett.

CHICAGO — A lousy marriage
might literally make you sick.
Marital strife and other bad per-
sonal relationships can raise your
risk for heart disease, researchers
reported Monday.
What it likely boils down to is
stress — a well-known contribu-
tor to health problems, as well as
a potential byproduct of troubled
relationships, the scientists said.
In a study of 9,011 British civil
servants, most of them married,
those with the worst close relation-
ships were 34 percent more likely
to have heart attacks or other heart
trouble during 12 years of follow-up
than those with good relationships.
That included partners, close rela-
tives and friends.
The study, in Monday’s Archives
of Internal Medicine, follows previ-
ous research that has linked health
problems with being single and
having few close relationships. In
the new study, researchers focused
more on the quality of marriage and
other important relationships.
“What we add here is that, ‘OK,
being married is in general good,
but be careful about the kind of
person you have married.’ The qual-
ity of the relationship matters,” said
lead author Roberto De Vogli, a
researcher with University College
in London.
De Vogli said his research team
is doing tests to see if study par-
ticipants with
bad relation-
ships have any
biological evi-
dence of stress
that could
contribute to
heart disease.
That includes
inflammation
and elevated
levels of stress
hormones.
A n o t h e r
recent study
also looked
at quality of
relationships
but had different results. There
was no association between marital
woes in general and risks for heart
disease or early death. But it did
find, during a 10-year follow-up,
that women who kept silent during
marital arguments had an increased
risk of dying compared with wives
who expressed their feelings dur-
ing fights. What appeared to matter
more for men was just being mar-
ried; married men were less likely
to die during the follow-up than
single men.
That study, of nearly 4,000 men
and women, was published online
in July in the journal Psychosomatic
Medicine.
In De Vogli’s study, men and
women with bad relationships faced
equal risks. Volunteers filled out
questionnaires asking them to rate
the person to whom they felt closest
on several measures. These included
questions about to what extent does
that person “give you worries, prob-
lems and stress?”
They also were asked about
whether they felt they could confide
in that person, or whether talking
with that person made them feel
worse.
Over the following 12 years, 589
participants had heart attacks or
other heart problems. Those with
the highest negative scores on the
questionnaire had the highest risks,
even taking into account other fac-
tors related to heart disease such
as obesity, high blood pressure and
smoking.
James Coyne, a University of
Pennsylvania psychology professor
who also has examined the health
impact of social relationships, said
De Vogli’s results “make intuitive
sense.” But he said the study found
only a weak association that doesn’t
prove bad relationships can cause
heart disease.
“It is still not clear what to rec-
ommend,” Coyne said.

NEW YORK — Sprint Nextel
Corp. Chairman and Chief
Executive Gary Forsee resigned
Monday as the board expressed
disappointment with the financial
results of the nation’s third-largest
wireless carrier. Sprint also lowered
its financial forecast for the current
quarter.
“It is the right time to put in
place new leadership to move the
company forward in improving
its performance and realizing cor-
porate objectives,” board member
Irvine Hockaday said in a company
statement.
The board said it was searching
for a replacement for Forsee, who
was also president. In the mean-
time, Director James Hance Jr. will
be acting nonexecutive chairman,
and Chief Financial Officer Paul
Saleh will serve as acting CEO.
Also Monday, Sprint Nextel said
it expected to
report a net loss
of approximately
337,000 monthly
subscribers in
the third quar-
ter. Its operating
income, exclud-
ing some items,
is expected to fall
below the previ-
ously forecast
range $11 billion
to $11.5 billion. Revenue is expect-
ed to fall below the earlier forecast
of $41 billion to $42 billion.
Sprint Nextel shares closed
Monday at $18.50, down 51 cents
or 2.7 percent. In extended trad-
ing, after the announcement of
Forsee’s departure, the shares
gained 45 cents.
The resignation confirms
newspaper articles, citing anony-
mous sources, that said Forsee’s
departure was imminent. USA
Today reported in Monday’s edi-
tion that Sprint’s board, spurred
by disappointing second-quarter
earnings, had decided to speed
up efforts to replace Forsee after
its work to find a replacement
was made public last week by The
Wall Street Journal.
Forsee took over the nation’s
third-largest wireless provider
in 2003 and was a driving force
behind the acquisition of Nextel
Communications Inc. in August
2005.
However, the company has
struggled after the merger, and
its stock price has dropped 27
percent. Amid technical prob-
lems and a
s omet i mes
unf oc us e d
m a r k e t -
ing strategy,
Sprint Nextel
has steadily
lost ground to
c ompe t i t or s
AT&T Inc.
and Verizon
Wireless in
attracting and
retaining cus-
tomers. Nextel’s phones, known for
their “push-to-talk” feature, aren’t
directly compatible with Sprint’s
network.
Most recently, Forsee has hung
the company’s future on the devel-
opment of WiMax, a fourth-gen-
eration mobile data network the
company claims will provide wire-
less download speeds comparable
to DSL or cable modems. It aims
to connect not only cell phones but
computers, video cameras and other
gadgets. Wide-scale commercial
application is still years away.
The Wall Street Journal said
company directors began looking
for Forsee’s replacement in August,
about the time Sprint Nextel
announced smaller second-quarter
profits and that it would continue
to struggle in the second half of
the year.
Sprint Nextel is formally based
in Reston, Va., Nextel’s old base, but
maintains operational headquarters
in Overland Park, Sprint Corp.’s
hometown.
Acting CEO Saleh, 50, comes
from the Nextel side, where he was
the chief financial officer. Before that
he was treasurer of The Walt Disney
Co. and Honeywell International
Inc.
Acting chairman Hance, 63, is
the former vice chairman of Bank of
America Corp. He has been on the
Sprint Nextel board since February
2005.
Forsee joined Sprint after its top
two executives were pushed out fol-
lowing a scandal about their use
of tax shelters. Before that, he was
vice chairman of BellSouth Corp. In
that role, he was responsible for all
of BellSouth’s domestic operations
and was chairman of the Cingular
Wireless joint venture.
Before joining BellSouth, Forsee
spent 10 years with Sprint.
ASSOCIATED PRESS
Sprint Nextel Corp., the nation’s third-largest wireless provider, said Monday that Gary Forsee, its chairman, president and CEO, was stepping
down, efective immediately. Sprint Nextel also said it expected to report a net loss of approximately 337,000 monthly subscribers in the third quarter.

AssociAted Press
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Three
men were charged with murder
on Monday in the shooting of a
football player on the University
of Memphis campus during an
attempted robbery, authorities
said.
Taylor Bradford, 21, had won
more than $3,000 at a nearby
casino the night before police
found him Sept. 30 in his car,
which had crashed into a tree
a few blocks from his campus
apartment.
Memphis Police Director
Larry Godwin said the attackers
intended to rob him, but didn’t
get what they had come for.
“He was targeted because
there was some information that
was out there and they believed
he had some cash,” Godwin said.
“The investigation is ongoing, and
we do expect additional arrests.”
The Memphis men, who are
not students at the university, were
identified as DaeShawn Tate, 21;
Victor Trezevant, 21; and Courtney
Washington, 22.
All three were in
police custody. It
was not imme-
diately known
whether they had
attorneys.
After the
shooting, univer-
sity officials told
students, faculty
and staff that the
suspects had fled
the campus, but
the school canceled classes as a pre-
caution.
Bradford, a Nashville native
who transferred to Memphis from
Samford University, was buried over
the weekend.
In Mississippi, a man was charged
Monday with capital murder in the
shooting death of Rodney Lydale
Lockhart, a University of Mississippi
sprinter, police
said.
Christian C.
Bonner, 20, is
accused of kill-
ing Lockhart, 20,
who was found
dead Sept. 29 at
his apartment
near campus,
Oxford Police
Chief Mike
Martin said.
The junior
psychology major was a member of
the gold medal-winning U.S. 1,600-
meter relay team in the 2006 World
Junior Championships in Beijing.

Finalists for the intramural flag
football corecreational champion-
ship the Throwed Slappers and
the Blue Barracudas, took center
stage in what proved to be a show-
down for the ages Monday night in
Memorial Stadium.
The game was destined to be a bat-
tle. The Blue Barracudas came into the
contest having conceded only six points
in each of their previous playoff games.
The Throwed Slappers were no slouch
in the playoffs either, beating each of
their opponents by 20 points.
Kim Cavaleri, Lansing sophomore
and coach of the Blue Barracudas, was
confident in the ability of her players.
“Some of our guys actually played
in high school,” she said. “Two of
them were regional champs.”
The game started with the Blue
Barracudas driving down the field
efficiently. The team scored the
contest’s first points when quarter-
back Neal Watson, Lansing junior,
completed a pass to Chris Bristow,
Lansing junior. The team missed the
extra point, leaving it with a 6-0 lead.
The following possession by the
Throwed Slappers resulted in a turn-
over on downs. The team would not
dwell on that for long, however, because
Jenna Hewitt, Silver Lake senior, picked
off a Blue Barracudas pass just a few
plays later. The play proved valuable, as
the team notched a nine-point touch-
down after Trina Lacen, Delphos junior,
caught a pass in the end zone. In corec-
reational intramurals a touchdown
caught by a female player is worth nine
points. The team converted on its two-
point try to bring the score to 11-6.
Before the whistle blew for half-
time, the Blue Barracudas scored
again. Watson sacrificed his body
by diving headfirst into the end
zone to catch a pass from Carolyn
McKune, Lansing junior.
The Throwed Slappers attempted
a quick response on their next pos-
session, with T.J. McReynolds, Olathe
senior, weaving his way to within 10
yards of the goal line. But the team
was left knocking on the door as time
expired a few seconds later.
Trailing 15-11 to start the sec-
ond half, the Throwed Slappers
had new motivation. A quick
touchdown and extra-point con-
version brought the score to 22-15
in the Throwed Slappers’ favor.
The scoring was not over. The Blue
Barracudas, with just more than five
minutes left in the game, fought back.
An interception that led to Bristow’s
second touchdown of the game helped
the Blue Barracudas cause. Another
missed extra point left the score at 22-
21, with Throwed Slappers still leading.
With just 40 seconds remaining
in the game, Brad Werner, Spearville
junior, intercepted the ball in the end
zone, stopping the clock and giving
the Blue Barracudas one last chance.
The sideline was tense as the seconds
counted down.
The Blue Barracudas managed
to work their way to midfield, but
it was not enough. Time ran out
and the Throwed Slappers took the
title with a final score of 22-21.
“What a way to end the game,”
Bristow said.
Champion quarterback Matt
Hoover, Junction City senior, was
all smiles after the game.
“It’s a lot of fun to play at Memorial
Stadium,” he said. “It’s even better to
win.”

Fists of Fury wrapped up its per-
fect season last night with a 19-0 vic-
tory in the men’s open flag football
championship game against the SP
OPT FLY team on Monday night at
Lawrence Memorial Stadium.
Leading the way on offense for Fists
of Fury was quarterback Chad Davis,
Overland Park junior. He accounted
for all of the team’s points. Davis threw
for two touchdown passes and ran
the ball for another score. Both of the
touchdown passes were deep tosses to
Cody Tenbrink, Topeka junior.
Fists of Fury’s defense also played a
big role in the team’s championship suc-
cess and shut out the highly anticipated
and athletic SP OPT FLY offense.
“We knew the guys we were play-
ing were going to be a real good team,
and they were,” Davis said, “But we
played just about as well as we could
play, especially on defense.”
The loss was a tough one for
the SP OPT FLY squad. The team
also entered the championship game
with an undefeated season.
“We didn’t feel like we were reallyclick-
ing tonight. We didn’t have goodcommu-
nication,” said KevinVeltri, Kismet gradu-
ate student andmember of SPOPTFLY.
Fists of Fury, a team primarily
composed of current and past stu-
dents from Battenfield Scholarship
Hall, will try to carry its perfect
season to next season. There is good
reason to believe that it may, too.
The team will lose only one player to
graduation.
“Basically the whole tournament
we’ve played at a very high level so
I think we just continued with that
and got on the right page,” Davis
said. “To be able to go undefeated
the whole way is pretty cool.”
But the biggest question from
fans was why “Fists of Fury” in a
sport where no fists are used?
Brian Lewis, Hutchinson senior
and captain of Fists of Fury, said the
team was named after the popular
Bruce Lee movie of the same title.
“My friend was like ‘I love that
movie, I think it would be a kick-ass
team name,’” Lewis said.

For the past four years, Delta Upsilon
has been involved in intramural flag
football’s men’s greek championship.
With two championships in the past,
Delta Upsilon took on Phi Delta Theta
and won the championship 19-14 plus
another year of bragging rights.
Tommy Beeler, a Delta Upsilon
senior and team captain, said Delta
Upsilon has represented itself as the
DU Ducks while proudly sporting blue
shirts with the word “QUACK” written
in white letters across the back.
In the beginning of the game, the
small group of supporters for the Delta
Upsilon Ducks chanted “Quack! Quack!
Quack!” as Delta Upsilon passed the
ball down the field on a fourth down to
score and take the lead. Delta Upsilon
played fluidly, passing the ball down the
field and into the end zone.
Tommy Hotze, a Delta Upsilon
sophomore, said he was proud to play
on a team with players who ranged
from sophomores to seniors. Beeler
said that although the game was well-
played, he was anxious about how
well the team would play together.
“I was nervous because the young-
er guys don’t have as much experi-
ence on a game-level like this,” Beeler
said. “But they really played great.”
Beeler has been involved with the DU
flag football team for the past four years
and reflects positively on the involve-
ment of the younger members of the
chapter. Hotze agreed and said it felt
good to be a part of a three-time repeat.
Joel Higgings, a Phi Delta Theta
senior and team captain, regretted
the way the game started.
“DU played well, and we made some
mistakes early in the game which gave
them a big lead right off,” he said.
But even among rival houses,
Higgins said that the game wasn’t
about rivalry but more about fun.
“I know a lot of guys from the
other team and it’s fun to get out
there and play them.”
Although Phi Delt came back in
the second half with two touch-
downs and two good extra points,
they couldn’t take the lead.
“They played better than us. Props
to them, ” said Higgins.

Team has difcult time at
Windon Memorial Classic
The KU men’s golf team fnished in
last place at the Windon Memorial
Classic yesterday. The performance
marked the worst outing of the
season for the team.
The Jayhawks ended the tourna-
ment with a third-round total of 47
over par. Junior Zach Pederson led
the Jayhawks tying for 36th place
at seven overpar.
Junior Walt Koelbel, freshman
Brad Hopfnger, freshman Nate Bar-
bee and freshman Andrew Storm
followed Pederson, all fnishing
worse than 50th place.
Coach Kit Grove had little to say
about the end result.
“This tournament was very
disappointing for us,” Grove said.
“There are really no excuses for
how we played.”
Northwestern was the host of
the tournament and placed frst in
the classic. Kansas did not win any
individual titles.
The Jayhawks’ next stop is next
weekend in Palm Beach, Calif,
where they will compete in one of
their biggest events of the year: the
Prestige at the PGA West.

Tyrell Reed went to bed every night dur-
ing boot camp by 10:30, but he could never
relax.
“Nothing usually affects my sleep,” he
said. “I just had a lot of stuff on my mind.”
Reed, a freshman guard, shouldn’t have
been uptight. He impressed several other
players with his speed and endurance during
boot camp.
Both skills were on display Thursday
morning. The Jayhawks
had to do 22s, a timed
drill that involves run-
ning down and back for
the full length of the
court twice. Because the
players didn’t run some
of the drills fast enough,
they had to run 30 of
them.
The extra sprints didn’t bother Reed. He
finished the 30th run in 17 seconds, slightly
ahead of senior guards Russell Robinson and
Jeremy Case.
“Tyrell killed it this morning,” freshman
center Cole Aldrich said last Thursday. “He
is a freak. It’s crazy going through 29 of them,
and you’d think he’d just coast because it’s the
last. He showed us that he is one of the best
athletes on the team.”
Reed’s running ability shouldn’t come as much
of a surprise considering his high school athletic
background. At Burlington High School, Reed
won state in the long jump and finished second
in the 400-meter run.
None of that running prepared him for
boot camp though. Reed said he woke up
sore every morning for the first few days. But
once he knew what to expect, it got easier.
“By the fourth day,” Reed said, “you kind
of know how to mentally prepare yourself
and know you’re going to get it done. I feel
like I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been in. I
felt good when I ran.”
And if Reed shows that same energy dur-
ing games, don’t expect him to sit on the
bench too long.
“It’s going to help me on the basketball
court this coming year,” Reed said, “because
the more endurance you have the longer
you’re going to be out there. The coach can
really count on you to be 100 percent out
there, and if you’re not going to be 100 per-
cent on defense, why be out there?”

Junior-college
prospect commits
Mario Little, a 6’5”forward from
Chipola Community College in Mari-
anna, Fla., verbally committed to play
for Kansas. Little told Kansas coach
Bill Self of his intentions Saturday
night. He averaged 10 points and six
rebounds per game for Chipola last
season as a freshman. Little, who is
originally from Chicago, also made
visits to Kansas State and Illinois
before deciding on Kansas.
Brandon rush update
Junior guard Brandon Rush said
his knee was about 70 percent, but
he still didn’t give a timetable for
his return. Rush
competed in all
the drills dur-
ing boot camp
except for those
that involved
physical contact.
He said he could
do everything
except turn and
plant on his knee.
“I had to slow it down a little bit,”
Rush said, “but I still made good
times. I thought it was pretty easy. He
took it kind of easy on us this year.”
Rush said he would suit up for Late
Night but probably would only do
lay-up drills.

Freshman
impresses

BY ASHER FUSCO

On Saturday afternoon, Todd Reesing
looked a bit confused. But it wasn’t the
Kansas State defense that dumbfounded
Kansas’ sophomore quarterback. It was the
frenzied mass of media that caught Reesing
off-guard.
Just a few minutes after leading the
Jayhawks to a 30-24 victory against the
Wildcats, a shoeless Reesing emerged
from the visitors’ locker room still clad
in his shoulder pads. He had taken a
wrong turn along one of the hallways of
Bill Snyder Family Stadium and stood in
front of a tidal wave of camera-hauling,
recorder-bearing journalists. The gregari-
ous star quickly greeted the media and
scooted back to the safety of the locker
room.
After winning its first five games and
leaping to No. 20 in the AP and USA Today
Coaches’ polls, Kansas may have to get used
to the attention: The Jayhawk bandwagon is
filling up fast, starting with the team’s peers
in the Big 12 Conference and some major
media outlets.
“They’re playing really well right now,”
Kansas State wide receiver Jordy Nelson said.
“They’re solid all around the board — special
teams, offense and defense.”
Kansas State coach Ron Prince said the
Jayhawks were terrific and praised Kansas’
offensive balance. Oklahoma coach Bob
Stoops said Kansas was taking the right steps
as a program and had made significant prog-
ress since Mangino’s arrival.
On ESPN’s “College Gameday Final,”
analyst and former Notre Dame coach
Lou Holtz gave junior cornerback Aqib
Talib a “helmet sticker” for his five tack-
les, one interception and one touchdown
performance Saturday. Last Sunday, col-
umns focused on Kansas football’s success
appeared in the Kansas City Star and the
Wichita Eagle. Collegefootballnews.com
placed the team at 15th in its weekly power
rankings.
Despite all of the hubbub surrounding
the program, Kansas players and coaches
conveyed the same quiet confidence they did
before the victory at Kansas State.
“This just proves that we can play on the
road,” Reesing said. “And it proves to any-
body who was doubting us that we are for
real and that we are a good team.”
Since the beginning of the season,
Mangino has trumpeted the mental edge
and overall talent level of his team, and play-
ers have repeatedly voiced their confidence
in the coaching staff. Five games into the
season, analysts and coaches from coast to
coast are beginning to get the Jayhawks’ mes-
sage, which Mangino hasn’t altered since the
start of September.
“We’re 5-0, but we’re not standing on our
heads or doing cartwheels,” Mangino said.
“We know we have a lot of work ahead of
us.”

left guard Adrian

Kan., native, enjoyed a particularly strong
game against Kansas State, Mangino said.
Running behind Mayes and the rest of the
ofensive line, Kansas totaled 170 yards on 39
rushes. The entire ofense has been superb in
2007, ranking fourth in the nation in points
per game and ffth in yards per game.

Respect granted,

“Rip his f--king head off!”
The line yelled by Rob Schneider’s
obnoxious character in the 1998 movie
“The Waterboy” and now repeated by a por-
tion of the Kansas student section during
kickoffs has elicited complaints from fans to
the Athletics Department.
Associate Athletics Director Jim
Marchiony said families in the stands and
others who might object should not be sub-
jected to the language.
“We would hope that the student body
could be more creative than that,” Marchiony
said. “That sentence takes no intelligence
and no creativity to yell. It’s embarrassing to
students themselves and to the University.”
Ryan McNabb, Liberal senior, said the
chant began a few years ago.
“Once you think about it, it’s pretty dis-
tasteful,” McNabb said. “I don’t think it’s a
big deal, but then again, I’m not around my
6-year-old son at the game. I could see how
others might find it offensive.”
Although popularity is hard to quantify,
use of the chant has been increasing since
2003. Marchiony said he wasn’t aware of the
chant’s existence before this season.
McNabb said he agreed that students
should think about what they were saying
before yelling it, but that he took part in the
chanting, so he couldn’t judge the practice.
A more adamant student section could
be attributed to sheer numbers — Kansas
set a nonconference attendance record this
year, averaging about 45,200 fans a game.
“I don’t know if the players can hear it,
but if I heard 10,000 kids yell ‘Rip his f--
king head off,’ I would get pretty pumped
up,” McNabb said. “I think it is more stupid
when kids start yelling ‘scoreboard’ when
we are up by three points, or doing the Rock
Chalk chant when there is seven minutes
left.”
Marchiony said he thought alcohol might
play a role but that was just a “convenient
excuse.” He said mob mentality was a factor.
“We would like to see the intelligence
and class of the students used to come up
with something else,” Marchiony said. “It
detracts from what is otherwise a terrific
student section.”
