4 September 17, 2003 Campus Life The Rambler New intramural coordinator seeks more student participation Christine Peirce STAFF WRITER Wesleyan recently named Aaron Whaley, 23, as the new intramu- ral coordinator. Sept. 15 was his first day on the job. Whaley now takes on the responsibilities of hiring and firing student workers in the Student Life Department, coordinating teams for intramural competi- tions and raising the percentage of participation to events sponsored by the school and its various organizations. "The ultimate goal is participation in more events," Whaley said. "This is about the students. If they really want something, they can come to me. We have the guys that are looking forward to the bas- ketball and the flag football. What do the girls who are not involved in athletics want? I'm just trying to get as many things as possible for the school," expressed Whaley. On the question as to what to expect this year, Whaley replied, "I know there were a lot of things do...

The Rambler Campus Life September 17, 2003 5 Students to hold 'barbeque' as banned-book protest Walk into a Barnes and Nobles book- store sometime this month and notice your dej& vu at the familiar front display. Instead of stacks of hardbacks about the joys of organic cooking, acrobatic sex, pet grooming or even the latest ramblings by lovers and haters of George W. Bush, September's tabletops compile our most endearing titles, classics in the making. The Outsiders sit beside The Chocolate War, the Harry Potter series, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, Slaughterhouse Five and The Catcher in the Rye on a table meant for young adult students marked, "Required Reading." But these modern favorites - along with confirmed classics such as, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, To Kill a Mockingbird and Of Mice and Men - might, as they have all been in the past, be removed from school libraries and cur- ricula due to challenges by parents, administrators or local organizations. The Ameri...

6 September 17, 2003 Sports The Rambler Jamal Lewis forecasts unheard of performance Babe Ruth's called shot, Joe Namath's guaranteed Super Bowl win and now Jamal Lewis' own cocky vision that he revealed before Sunday's game in a phone call with personal friend and upcoming opponent, Cleveland linebacker Andra Davis. All of these historical occurrences had a thing or two in common. All of them were predicted. All of them were unheard of. And all of them actually happened. Well, the jury is still out on the King of Clout's legendary 'called shot.' The fourth-year running back for the Baltimore Ravens predicted he would break the single-game rushing record against the Browns in that same conversation. ———— Then Sunday, Sept. 14 came, and Lewis wasted no time fulfilling his prophecy. On the Ravens' second play from scrimmage, he broke through the Browns' eight-man front line for an 82-yard scor- ing run on his first rush of the contest. Marc Nettles Something tells me Davis' eyebrow ra...

8 September 17, 2003 Entertainment The Rambler The Farewell Tour claims its place at the pinnacle of rock Brian Michael STAFF WRITER The Farewell Tour is the sassiest new musical sensa- tion to rampage through the Wesleyan ghetto. Bodacious lyrics and exquisite musical ability make Farewell Tour a shining beacon in this world of really crappy rock and roll. 1 was recently granted the great honor of having an inter- view with the members of The Farewell Tour, guitarist James Haney and drummer Danny Chism. The interview was strangely sporadic and unprofes- sional. Haney is the lead guitarist in this duo of greatness. When asked to share with us his musical inspi- ration, he looked me in the eyes and said, "1 wouldn't say that we are the best in the world, you know, 1 mean music is so region- al. We're more like the best in the world.. ..regionally." Obviously I was stunned, but I shook it off and continued. His cohort Danny Chism's reply to the same question was, "The point is not onl...

2 September 24, 2003 News The Rambler Slabach to raise funds for, awareness of law school Nici Sandberg CAMPUS LIFE EDITOR Frederick G Slabach became the filth dean in the law school's 11-year history on June 1, and he said that he is very fortunate to be chosen. Slabach said that the people are great to work with, and "it's just a good situation" in which "everyone pulls together," he said. Slabach chose to come to Wesleyan because it is "a great opportunity to be the dean." As dean, Slabach supervises and assists in the carrying out of crucial tasks. "[Being dean] is like being the coach of a team, I'm responsible to help support and develop," said Slabach. Some of Slabach's previous job history includes being the dean of academics at three other law schools. He said being dean is "like being a provost at a regular universi- ty but on a smaller scale." There had to be "a shift in focus toward the entire law school," Slabach said. He said that he likes the "bigger picture" and havi...

The Rambler Opinions September 24, 2003 3 Wesleyan absence policy not conducive to slacker lifestyle Today, i woke up, and everything was great. The sun was out, my weary bones, at last, felt rested and a quality Pantera tune serenaded my awakening. i could almost taste the delectable Dora's slop, sitting under the heat lamps and just waiting to provide the nutritional boost needed for me to dwindle away yet anoth- er day going through the motions of my school-related obligations here at Texas Wesleyan. Just then, as I was on the verge of drifting back into a hazy, anxiety-free slumber, premature satisfaction with life was torn to shreds by the sim- plest of acts. It all started when I felt that annoying dis- comfort emerging from my subconscious as I noticed an intense brightness engulfing my room. The same bright- ness, which I now know to be alien to the earlier hours of the morning, in which I might have still been in danger of punctuality. Hoping that this potential indication ...

4 September 24, 2003 Campus Life The Rambler 'See You at the Pole' draws members of TWU community Christine Peirce STAFF WRITER Lord, bless this campus and alt faculty, staff, and students. Heavenly Father, allow those who do not know You to see You. Dear God, we lift up the world to You, that it may find peaceful resolutions in Your favor. This and other prayers were offered on Sept. 17 at 7:30 a.m. around flagpoles on campuses across the world, asking for guid- ance for friends, family, leaders and coun- tries. . Wesleyan had about 10-15 people wake up in the morning to circle around the pole, located between the science and business buildings. "There was a variety of topics ranging from school, to our nation, to individuals' personal prayer requests," said Tony Leverett, a senior English major. "It went very well. We had a good mix- ture of faculty, staff and students," Leverett added. Dr. Gladys Childs, the interim university chaplain, joined the group to ask for God's guidance ...

The Rambler Campus Life September 24, 2003 5 Students and other fans of Ritter and Cash mourn their deaths "It is really sad that John Ritter died hut the world will never see another Johnny Cash." —Neat Bridges Senior psychology major The worlds of music and film were dealt a disheartening blow on Sept. 12 when the loss of Johnny Cash and John Ritter were announced to the public. Cash, who sparked a revival of American country and west- ern music, died of complications from diabetes, according to offi- cials at Baptist Hospital in Nashville, Tenn. Although Cash's fame comes from the area of country music, his musical genius spread across gen- res and ________ bridged the gap between songs and songwrit- ing that many believed to be polar opposites. Not only did he sing songs that will forever resound through history as some of the greatest sounds recorded, he also wrote and co-wrotc the compositions that made him famous. He was good friends with other geniuses of his time, like Shel...

6 September 24. 2003 Sports The Rambler Rams' soccer continues outstanding Red River Conference play Nathan Mutchler STAFF WRITER The Wesleyan men's soccer team had a week marked by two very opposite performances. One was a poor showing that left the team feeling hopeless and the other was a show of heart that allowed them to hold their heads high. On Sept. 17, the Rams had the challenging task of facing off against the very respectable Oklahoma City University Stars. Oklahoma City is one of the top teams in the always-competitive Sooner Conference. The Stars consistently compete in the Regional playoffs, often times going very deep and suffering close losses in the final rounds. The game started off with an indicator of the trou- bles that would bring the Rams down that evening. Right from the kickoff, the Stars hit a long pass to the left cor- ner that went beyond the entire Ram defense and was collected-after a lightning fast run-by Oklahoma City's Matt Williams. The Rams would s...

8 September 24, 2003 Entertainment The Rambler Wesleyan's Faculty Jazz Ensemble rescues jazz from elevator Duke Ellington once wrote, "If the American public likes it, it must be good." Of course Ellington made the remark when his style of music — jazz — was at its peak of popularity. Today, the American public likes stuff that isn't nec- essarily good, such as regurgitated renditions of angry white man music, hip-hop that lost its heart in its pants, and an old, washed-up woman tongue-kissing a young one. Most Americans only experience jazz when on hold with their cellphone service or while enjoying a low- calorie submarine sandwich. This Thursday evening, Sept. 25, Wesleyan's Faculty Jazz Ensemble breaks jazz out of the elevator and brings it live to Martin Hall. Lee Tomboulian, jazz pianist and adjunct faculty, wants people to give jazz a chance. "People don't know what they're missing," said Tomboulian, "jazz is a whole lot of fun; once you get past the alienation of every beat ...

2 October 1, 2003 News The Rambler New law bans certain license plate covers Brian Michael STAFF WRITER As of Sept. 1, the police forces of the state of Texas have a new reason to pull over driv- ers. Irving Police spokesman David Tull told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that the law is not new so much as it is a revision of older, more lax laws that peo- ple have been bending. The new law states that drivers with license plate covers that touches any part of the offi- cial lettering on their license plates can be ticketed. The idea behind the law is to allow police to see all parts of the license plate in order to dis- cern if drivers are wanted for a crime. Police say that some license plate covers obstruct them in their duty to serve and protect. The law also regulates any- thing else drivers may put on their license plates, such as flashing lights, which should not cover the actual license plate. The law can be problematic in Texas because there is no offi- cial state license plat...

The Rambler Opinions October 1, 2003 3 Quizno's provides healthy meal alternative ...eventually, sometimes Everyday, between classes, the sub is filled with Wesleyan students and fac- ulty making the most of their brief inter- mission between classes, work or other obligations. Aside from its convenient central location, abundance of quasi- comfortable seating and always cultural- ly diverse selection of today's hottest Nelly and P-Diddy tunes, the SUB has secured its popularity by giving the stu- dents the most important luxury imagi- nable. This is, of course, a nutritional alternative to Dora's cafeteria, in the form of our very own Quizno's. Unfortunately, the true source of the SUB congestion probably does not lie in its popularity. Instead, it occurs as a result of the sleep-induc- ing Quizno's service speed which, in turn, creates a line of impatient customers draining into a sea of disgruntled stu- dents too malnutritioned to force their feeble way through the legions.

The Rambler Sports October 1, 2003 5 Lady Rams honored in consecutive weeks Marc Nettles EDITOR-IN-CHIEF The Lady Rams are playing wonder- ful volleyball right now as their overall record is 11 -2, which includes a record of 9-1 against Red River Athletic Conference opponents. This is part- ly due to the play of four extremely ath- letic individuals whose play in the past two weeks has been recognized by the conference. Three ath- letes from the squad have earned confcrence awards in each of the past two weeks and have helped their club to nine consecutive victories. Junior middle blocker Tiffany Porterfield earned the first co-player of the week for her numerous kills and dejecting blocks from Sept. 15-21.

In game three, UTPB slipped by with a 30- 28 win, but in game four, the Lady Rams meant business and finished out the match with some of the most intense play they've seen all year. Strong hitting came from sophomore middle hitter Rachel Loftin, who tallied 16 kills throughout the match.
