Naismith sculpture nds new home on campus
When Elden Tef created
his bronze sculpture of James
Naismith fve years ago, he
thought the most natural place
for it would be the University
of Kansas. Now, afer com-
pleting and placing two other
versions one in Canada and
one in Massachusetts his
third replica of basketballs
inventor will fnally make it to
campus.
Te new sculpture will de-
pict Naismith sitting down on
a bench-like granite base with
two peach baskets between his
legs and on his right knee and
a soccer ball, which he used in
inventing the game. Tefs idea
was to provide room next to
Naismith for people to sit next
to him.
Ive been waiting ever since
the beginning, said Tef, the
94-year-old sculptor. Tis is
where I thought it would land
frst. Finally, afer all of these
years Im going to fnish it.
Te sculpture was purchased
for $100,000 by KU Endow-
ment for placement outside
the soon-to-be built DeBruce
Center, the building that will
house and exhibit Naismiths
original rules of basketball.
Te rules a 13-item pre-
scription on two pages were
purchased for the University
for $4.3 million by alumni Da-
vid Booth in 2010.
Plans for the DeBruce Cen-
ter are still in their fnal stages
of approval. Construction is
expected to begin afer com-
mencement, said Dale Seufer-
ling, director of KU Endow-
ment. Construction was
initially expected to begin in
late 2013, but was delayed be-
cause of design challenges in
attaching the facility to Allen
Fieldhouse, which was impos-
sible during the basketball sea-
son, Seuferling said.
Te $18 million Center,
which will include a restau-
rant, will be located at the
northeast corner of Allen
Fieldhouse, on the east side of
the parking garage. Te 36,000
square foot center, and the
statue are being funded by do-
nors to KU Endowment. Paul
and Katherine DeBruce made
the lead gif for the new build-
ing. Paul DeBruce is a graduate
of the University, and today is
CEO and founder of DeBruce
Grain, Inc.
It seems like KU is a cradle
to basketball for the United
States, Paul DeBruce said.
And with Booth buying the
rules, we needed a place for it
to be housed.
Te Naismith sculpture will
be Tefs third sculpture at the
University. Te two others are
the bronze Jayhawk in front of
Strong Hall and Moses in front
of Smith Hall.
Tef says the Naismith
sculpture for the University is
part of what he calls an in-
ternational trimemorial. Te
other two have been placed in
Almonte, Canada, Naismiths
birthplace, and in Springfeld,
Mass., where he frst invented
basketball.
Te sculpture of James Na-
ismith outside of the DeBruce
Center will be a ftting land-
mark for the entrance to the
building containing exhibits
on the history of the game of
basketball and the inventor
of the game, Mr. Naismith,
Seuferling said.

KU Endowment donor
Last week, the University
launched a new website to aid
students and faculty members
in creating accessible content
for students with disabilities.
Te website, content.accessi-
bility.ku.edu, is geared toward
adapting multimedia content
in diferent ways to help that
content reach a variety of au-
diences.
It started with a meeting
with the people in the AAAC
ofce expressing concern
about the growing number of
courses that are either online
or partially online, Kit Cole,
the projects coordinator, said.
We decided at that point that
it would be a good idea to
make a website as a resource.
Students with disabilities, for
example those with difculty
hearing or seeing, may strug-
gle to understand online and
multimedia communication.
Te website gives users
step-by-step guides to cre-
ate multimedia that is more
easily accessible by students
with disabilities. Processes for
captioning YouTube videos,
creating transcripts for au-
dio, designing web pages and
working with word documents
are available.
Director of IT External Af-
fairs Daniel Day believes this
website will change the way
students and faculty create
content.
Its much easier to start with
accessibility in mind than try
and add accessibility later, he
said.
Te idea is that content cre-
ators will consult the website
during the entire creation pro-
cess.
Tis website can, and
should, be used by anyone in
the University who creates
content, Day said.
Te website aims to beneft
all students, not just those with
disabilities.
Research indicates that we
can reduce barriers to learn-
ing for everyone by providing
the same information through
diferent modalities (for exam-
ple, vision and hearing), Jamie
Simpson, director of Acces-
sibility and ADA Education,
said in an email. Captions on
a video add another layer of
providing the same informa-
tion through diferent learning
modalities.
Accompanying a video with
a transcript would help add
greater clarity to the subject
matter. Te websites creators
also hope that students can use
the website afer they leave the
University.
It would be great if students
got on the site and learned as
much as they could, because
students eventually are going
to leave and get a job some-
where where theyre going to
have to create content thats
used by people with disabili-
ties, Cole said. Te more you
know, the better.
Day hopes that the School of
Education students who aim
to teach K-12 will beneft from
the site.
Te more they know about
accessibility and how to make
content accessible and the
more theyre familiar with
what we have on the website,
the easier its going to be when
they transfer to jobs in K-12,
Day said.
KU IT isnt the only organi-
zation on campus that sup-
ports increased accessibility
education. Other entities such
as the Academic Achievement
and Access Center, the Cen-
ter for Online and Distance
Learning, the Ofce of Institu-
tional Opportunity and Access
and the Center for Teaching
Excellence contributed to the
formation of the website.

Replant Mt. Oread gains
traction, support on campus
LOCAL

Promoting sustainability can
come in the simplest of forms.
Sometimes a step toward a
sustainable campus comes in
the form of a tree or nine of
them.
University students and a
faculty gathered on the lawns
in front of Staufer-Flint Hall
and Watson Library at 11 a.m.
Friday to participate in the
planting of new trees as part
of the Replant Mount Oread
event.
We were excited about the
turnout, not only with volun-
teers helping with the project,
but with donors who are re-
ally funding all of this, said
Jef Severin, the director of the
Center for Sustainability. We
set a goal of $5,000 for this par-
ticular project, and weve gone
over that goal at this point.
Te event was funded by a
campaign with a fundrais-
ing goal of $5,000, but raised
more than twice the amount
of money at over $11,000. Te
extra funds obtained will most
likely lead to more planting
and sustainability initiatives,
which, according to Severin,
will most likely take place in
the Fall 2014 semester. Replant
Mount Oread also functions as
a supplement to the Universi-
tys Master Plan to recreate a
natural canopy created by trees
along Jayhawk Boulevard,
by planting in other areas on
campus that are not near the
road.
Its an important element of
that in enhancing our campus
landscape, Severin said. Kind
of adding to [it] as we go along
because a lot of the trees that
have been here for a long time
TOM DEHART/KANSAN
Drew Carlberg, Mason Keller, Danny Dowling, and Colin Belmont nish up planting a tree Friday for Replant
Mount Oread. The tree was one of nine Replant Mount Oread trees planted Friday, bringing the initiatives total
number of trees planted over the past three years to 25.

Te Universitys Student
Money Management Services
(SMMS) is doing its part this
month to help students better
understand their fnances.
Te organization is cur-
rently taking part in National
Financial Literacy Month, a
month dedicated to educating
Americans about personal f-
nance, by hosting events and
lectures on campus.
Yoon Sook Chung, a senior
educator for SMMS, said that
college is the perfect time for
people to be educated on f-
nances, as students tend to be
a blank slate when it comes
to handling money on their
own.
College students dont have
a lot of experience dealing
with money, Chung said. So
we have students here at an
age where they can still learn
about that. For example, they
have a lot of money from f-
nancial aid, so they need to
learn to manage the money so
it can last all year.
Chung said the lack of fnan-
cial experience and knowl-
edge students have at this age
is concerning, which is why
they are using this month to
help prepare those about to
enter adulthood.
I do think theyre lagging
behind in fnance education,
Chung said. Teir family
or schools dont have the re-
sources to teach them, so we
feel like they come into col-
lege in a new environment
and independent. Tis is the
time when they need to learn
to manage money so when
they get into the real world,
they can handle the pressure
of being an adult and mak-
ing real money so they dont
make the same mistakes their
parents or grandparents may-
be did before them.
One of the focuses of this
months events will be debt,
an issue that is the most press-
ing for young adults. Accord-
ing to the Project on Student
Debt, seven in 10 college
seniors in 2012 had student
loan debt with an average of
$29,400 per borrower, and
that number is increasing at
an average of 6 percent per
year since 2008.
McDouglas Archibong, a
peer educator at SMMS, said
knowledge on debt should
be the primary focus for stu-
dents. But while student debt
is a large factor, things like
credit card debt should be
considered as well, he said.
Debt is defnitely the issue
college students should be
most concerned with, Ar-
chibong said. Its important
you know how to spend the
money we have, rather than
spending what we make or
aford, and students need to
learn about that.
Te main event hosted by
the organization will be the
Cash Carnival on April 23 in
the Kansas Union, which will
feature games to help learn
money management skills,
prizes, food and a free credit
report review.
Among the other events
SMMS is hosting are two lec-
ture series on April 23 and
May 7 at the Union that focus
on student loans and painting
a clearer picture of fnances
for students.

Te St. Lawrence Catholic
Campus Center is now of-
fering a program that allows
students to take certain class-
es within the KU Core that
would also count toward the
centers new program: Hu-
manitas. Te goal will be to
provide a classical liberal arts
education while at a large uni-
versity, like the University.
Te program will be avail-
able to incoming freshmen
for Fall 2014 and transfer stu-
dents. It isnt considered a ma-
jor or a minor and only lasts
for two years. Te Humanitas
program works by allowing
students to take classes for
their major while choosing
particular classes for their
core requirements that refect
a traditional Catholic educa-
tion.
Te program is taking appli-
cants until April 30, and the
program will be limited to 12
students per year. Patrick Cal-
lahan, Dean of Humanitas In-
stitute for Faith and Culture at
St. Lawrence, said this was to
keep class sizes small. He said
the faculty wants to focus on
and connect with the group
of students. While the bulk
of students will be freshmen,
Callahan encourages transfer
students and sophomores to
meet with him to discuss eli-
gibility.
Im actually jealous that Im
not two years younger, so I
could participate, said Colin
Karr, a junior from Olathe.
Karr, who attends services
and is a part of the St. Law-
rence community, said that
the program will have a
strengthening efect on the
Catholic community at the
University, because students
will better understand their
faith.
One of the biggest problems
that the church has is that
people dont understand the
faith, Karr said. He said any-
thing that helps with the issue
will be good for the Catholic
community.
Te program allows for stu-
dents to continue with their
major and the KU Core while
taking specifc classes, such as
Latin and medieval history, to
supplement their education,
and earn credits outside of
their major. Humanitas ends
during the students sopho-
more year with a trip to Rome
and Florence. However, there
is no degree or diploma asso-
ciated with the completion of
the program.
A program such as this is
more typical at a smaller lib-
eral arts college, but it is new
to the University.
Something that you would
fnd at a small, Catholic liber-
al arts college is also available
at KU, Callahan said.
Te program was designed
to ft into the Core and most
majors. Te program only re-
quires about two classes per
semester to allow for students
to continue their normal area
of study.
Callahan also emphasized
the community aspect of the
program. Te students will
have the opportunity to par-
ticipate in cultural experienc-
es, such as attending plays,
going to art galleries and
memorizing literature and
poems.
Every year in August the
group will go to Colorado be-
fore the semester begins and
participate in activities such
as hiking, building fres and
memorizing poetry. Callahan
said that this part of the pro-
gram allows for the students
to delve deeper into the pro-
gram.
Along with the humanities
classes, students will also en-
roll in a series of classes called
Te Great Books, which fo-
cus on the many important
pieces of literature through-
out diferent periods of civi-
lization. Tis class is ofered
through the St. Lawrence
Center and Benedictine Col-
lege, an area Catholic school,
as a transfer credit, so the
Catholic faith can be openly
discussed in class. Callahan
said that Te Great Books
classes are a crucial part of the
program.
Te Humanitas program was
built out of classes and oppor-
tunities that the University
and the St. Lawrence Center
already ofered. Callahan said
it was a matter of combining
all of the pieces and putting it
together.

On Wednesday, the Univer-
sity of Kansas may have a new
Truman Scholarship winner.
For months, four University
candidates have been work-
ing on their applications and
preparing for an interview
that took place last Monday in
the U.S. District Court for the
Western District of Missouri.
Te Harry S. Truman schol-
arship is a prestigious oppor-
tunity for students who plan
to attend graduate school and
commit themselves to public
service. All four of the candi-
dates plan to assist their com-
munity either through work-
ing in law and public policy,
medicine or social welfare.
Candidates Emma Halling,
Leigh Loving, Ginny Helgeson
and Micah Melia are all heavily
involved on campus. As most
students know, it is a strug-
gle to maintain outstanding
grades and participate in ex-
tracurriculars, but these four
students have worked to make
it possible.
I live and die by my Google
Calendar, and being a box-
er means that I have to take
care of myself, eat well and get
enough sleep, which helps me
to always be performing my
best academically and in extra-
curriculars, Halling said.
Halling serves as the student
body vice president and has
worked all of her undergrad-
uate career with the Commis-
sion on the Status of Women.
Tey all mentioned that
keeping a tight schedule is im-
portant, along with balancing
priorities.
I create a daily schedule for
myself each morning. It helps
me keep track of what I need
to be doing throughout the
day, Loving said.
Loving is even more involved
as the president and founder
of the Jayhawk Health Initia-
tive, an honors ambassador
and a member of Kappa Alpha
Teta.
Te other two candidates are
just as well known on cam-
pus. Helgeson is the president
of the Sexuality Education
Committee through the Ec-
umenical Campus Ministries
and works with the Willow
Domestic Violence Center and
the Center for Community
Outreach. Melia is a teachers
aide at the Hilltop Child De-
velopment Center, assists with
Alternative Breaks and is also
a member of the Center for
Community Outreach.
Tese scholars do not vol-
unteer their time just for the
accolades; they all have difer-
ent reasons for their continued
participation on campus.
Student organizations and
volunteering are important
because they beneft you ho-
listically, Helgeson said. Tey
inspire friendships, they give
real world experience and they
help you keep your perspec-
tive. Whenever I feel stressed,
my extracurricular activities
both challenge me and refresh
me.
Like Loving, many volun-
teers work to hone their skills
in their future careers while
working with those who could
become their colleagues.
Last year, I founded Jay-
hawk Health Initiative, a pre-
health program that focuses
on giving participants experi-
ential learning opportunities,
Loving said. Te goal of JHI
is twofold. First, JHI strives to
produce educated and engaged
students who will become the
next generation of health-
care providers in the state of
Kansas. Second, JHI aims to
ensure that all citizens have
equal access to healthcare by
providing aid to under-served
populations, both locally and
internationally.
If chosen to receive this pres-
tigious award, all of the can-
didates would put the money
towards furthering their edu-
cation.
Receiving the Truman
would help me to pay for grad-
uate degrees in public policy
and law, so that I will have less
student debt upon graduation
and be able to more readily
enter public service, Halling
said.
However, the honor of the
Truman scholarship is worth
more than just the money.
While the scholarship is
certainly a huge beneft for
paying for graduate school,
I think the more signifcant
gif is the community of oth-
er Truman scholars you get
to know, Helgeson said. She
describes being in a room with
the thirteen Kansas City fnal-
ists on Monday, all waiting to
be interviewed. It was a lot
of fun to become friends with
these interesting, kind, and so-
cial justice-oriented students
during just that brief time. If I
am chosen as a Truman schol-
ar, I would most appreciate the
friendships I made. I would
use those connections in my
future career to address social
and political problems with
the knowledge and experienc-
es of many diferent people,
Helgeson said.
Tese four students have
worked all of their academic
lives to be the best they can be.
Halling, Loving, Helgeson and
Melia remember working hard
since their earliest days in ele-
mentary school.
I have been academically in-
volved and engaged for as long
as I can remember. My family
always placed a large empha-
sis on academic performance,
Halling said. I have always
been the type of person to get
engaged in being a part of the
solution if I identify a problem
I want to solve.
Each one of the candidates
thanks their family for infu-
encing their involvement and
academia. Melia said that her
family has always support-
ed and encouraged her de-
cisions in and outside of the
classroom. Loving credits her
mother and father individual-
ly for their attributions to her
education.
I credit my mom for reading
to me every night before bed
and passing along a love of lit-
erature, Loving said. My dad
has guided me through the
various situations that come
with a leadership role.
Helgeson credits the Univer-
sity for her success as well.
None of this would have
been possible without the
University Honors Program.
Te Honors Program cares
deeply about their students,
said Helgeson. I felt very well
prepared throughout the en-
tire application and interview
process. It is wonderful to have
been given a chance to repre-
sent the University that has
ofered me so many academic
and extracurricular opportu-
nities.

are nearing the end of their life
(sic). And so as we take out 50
sometimes 70 trees a year
that were losing to insect dam-
age and disease, we really need
to stay on top of putting those
trees back up, and this efort
kind of helps fll that gap.
Victor Zaharopoulos, a ju-
nior who helped begin the
event three years ago, said he
is pleased with the way Replant
Mount Oread has developed
over the years, and is happy
with the amount of money
raised for the event this year, as
well as having currently plant-
ed over 25 trees on campus.
Its been really great, the
support from alumni and stu-
dents. I think the combination
has been really strong, and
thats why its such an efective
project because it is immedi-
ately visible, Zaharopoulos
said. You know, one day the
trees appear and the students
take notice.
Emily Cook, a junior from
Olathe, said that participating
in the event is a good way to
give back and to reduce the
campus carbon footprint.
Its a very long-lasting gif
on campus, Cook said. In a
couple of years well be able to
say, Hey, we planted that one.

Shooting in Kansas
City leaves three dead
OVERLAND PARK A gunman
opened re outside of a Jewish
community center on Sunday,
killing a doctor and his teenage
grandson before heading to a Jew-
ish retirement community a few
blocks away and killing someone
else, authorities said.
Police arrested the suspected
assailant in an elementary school
parking lot shortly after the at-
tacks in the Kansas City suburb of
Overland Park.
At a news conference, the city's
police chief, John Douglass, said
the suspect is in his 70s, wasn't
from Kansas and wasn't known
to area law enforcement. He also
said there was no indication that
the suspect knew the victims.
"Today is a sad and very trag-
ic day," Douglass said. "As you
might imagine we are only three
hours into this investigation.
There's a lot of innuendo and a lot
of assertions going around. There
is really very little hardcore infor-
mation."
Douglass declined to release
the names of the victims, citing
the need to notify their loved ones
rst. But the family of the rst two
people who were shot released a
statement later Sunday identi-
fying them as Dr. William Lewis
Corporon and his 14-year-old
grandson, Reat Grifn Underwood.
They were both Christian, and the
family thanked members of their
church congregation, among other
people, for their support.
"We take comfort knowing they
are together in Heaven," the fam-
ily said. It asked for privacy to
mourn.
Rebecca Sturtevant, a spokes-
woman for Overland Park Region-
al Medical Center, where Reat was
taken and where he died, said
family members said Corporon
and the boy were at the commu-
nity center so that the high school
freshman could try out for KC Su-
perStar, a singing competition for
students.
Douglass said the suspect made
several statements to police, "but
it's too early to tell you what he
may or may not have said." He
also said it was too early in the in-
vestigation to determine whether
there was an anti-Semitic motive
for the attacks or if they will be
investigated as hate crimes. The
Jewish festival of Passover begins
Monday.
"We are investigating it as a
hate crime. We're investigating
it as a criminal act. We haven't
ruled out anything. ... Again, we're
three hours into it," he said.
Douglass said the suspect rst
opened re in the parking lot be-
hind the Jewish Community Center
of Greater Kansas City. Corporon
died at the scene and his grand-
son later died at the hospital. The
chief said the suspect then drove
to the nearby retirement commu-
nity, Village Shalom, where he
shot and killed a woman or girl.
The gunman also shot at two oth-
er people during the attacks, but
missed them, Douglass said.
Douglass said a shotgun was
used in the attacks, and that
investigators are also trying to
determine if a handgun and as-
sault-style rie may also have
been used.
Police ofcers were also sent to
other Jewish facilities in the area
immediately after the shootings,
the police chief said.
"Immediately when we learned
we had an active shooter we dis-
patched vehicles to secure and
surveil all the active Jewish facil-
ities in the city and other religious
institutions which are not Jewish,"
Douglass said.
The suspect was taken to the
Johnson County Detention Center.
Johnson County District Attorney
Stephen Howe, who attended the
news conference along with Barry
Grissom, U.S. Attorney for Kansas,
said it was too soon to know when
the suspect would appear in court.
Corporon, who was a family
doctor, leaves behind a wife of 49
years. His grandson, Reat, was an
Eagle Scout who loved camping
and hunting with his grandfather,
father and brother, the family
said.
President Barack Obama re-
leased a statement expressing his
grief over the attack, and Kansas
Gov. Sam Brownback vowed to
bring those responsible to justice.
"My heart and prayers are with
all those who were affected by to-
day's events," Brownback said in
a statement. "We will pursue jus-
tice aggressively for these victims
and criminal charges against the
perpetrator or perpetrators to the
full extent of the law."

CRIME
A
merican medicine
has advanced
a lot since the
days of treating multiple
patients with the same,
uncleaned instruments.
As technology and society
have progressed, medicine
and techniques employed
by doctors have led to
amazing advancements
in the feld of medicine
that now allow people
with debilitating diseases
to overcome them with
relative ease. Tey also
provide doctors new ways
of preventing debilitating
diseases.
Despite these
advancements in modern
medicine, some people
are still apprehensive
about the possible side
efects of certain drugs,
especially vaccinations
given to infants. Te
issue of whether certain
vaccines cause autism in
children has experienced a
resurgence in recent years,
in part due to a 1998 study
by British scientist Dr.
Andrew Wakefeld, who
asserted that vaccinations
in children can lead to
autism later in life.
While contemporary
scientists and doctors
have concluded that
Wakefelds results were
fraudulent, many parents
and families with small
children still believe that
vaccines for diseases like
measles, mumps and
rubella are connected
to children becoming
autistic, in part because
of a recent movement by
non-vaccination groups
still clinging to Wakefelds
research results despite the
danger it presents to those
not vaccinated.
One recent example is
an outbreak of mumps
in Ohio, which scientists
believe originated at Ohio
State University. Mumps,
unlike similar kinds of
diseases like measles and
polio, is a highly contagious
disease transmitted like
a cold or the fu, which
ofen leads to a high
fever, fatigue, swelling of
the salivary glands and
ofen severe swelling of
the testes in post-puberty
males. Te outbreak led
many to reconsider the
validity of nonvaxxers
and their assertions about
vaccinations and autism.
Mumps occurs in only a
few people per year under
normal circumstances, but
in highly populated areas
the disease can spread
quickly, especially with
those in the approximately
12 percent of the
population who either did
not receive their booster
shot for mumps and similar
diseases, or who received
no vaccination for the
disease because of ethical
or ideological reasons.
Another outbreak, this
time with measles, which
in 2000 was considered
to have been wiped out,
resurfaced in New York
City earlier this year with
at least 19 confrmed
cases, according to TIME
magazine. Measles, another
disease easily prevented
by vaccinations, ofen
resembles an extreme case
of chickenpox, but can
be fatal if the patient has
unexpected complications
during the disease or has
a compromised immune
system. Te disease can
also occur with very few
symptoms, making it
difcult to contain when
there is an outbreak.
Te emergence of these
diseases that were once
thought to be eliminated
has serious consequences
if lef unchecked. Te
sector of the population
that for one reason or
another does not have their
vaccines (about 12 percent
according to the Center
for Disease Control) is
obviously the most likely to
fall victim to these diseases,
and the increased number
of cases across the nation
doesnt help their chances
of remaining unscathed.
While the pursuit
of medical exams and
procedures on children
should remain under
the guidance of the
childs parents, an issue
of this importance is
not to be taken lightly.
Unfortunately, parents and
families of children across
the country continue to
withhold vaccinations for
their children that could
potentially save their lives
and the lives of those
who could be exposed.
If the issue of concern is
childrens safety, wouldnt
it make sense to get all
children vaccinated instead
of withholding valuable
prevention of diseases?
Time will tell whether
parents will eventually
submit to allowing
all children to receive
vaccinations, but it is likely
that more lives will be
threatened before there is
any real change in parents
attitudes.

Vaccines important
to health of society
W
hen I think
of the word
confscation,
I immediately think of two
scenarios: a toddler in danger
and an airport. Whether it is a
toy or a bottle of water, some
authority decides that you are
no longer allowed to be in
possession of something, ofen
with the goal of safety.
A toddler may not realize
it, but someone taking away a
toy that they could choke on
is in its best interest. Similarly,
although the TSA security
checkpoints can be a tedious
process, most citizens have
a general agreement that
security in airports is also
necessary.
Realizing that losing
what we may consider a
convenience or a necessity is
actually benefcial is a slow
process without intervention,
even if it is for a greater good.
Carpooling, recycling and
using reusable bags are all
sustainable actions that may
not be convenient, but are
for the greater good. If the
government confscated
cars or waste management
services, chaos would ensue.
However, society will not
come to a crashing halt if
plastic bags are confscated to
promote the use of paper or
reusable bags.
In fact, Hawaii is the frst
U.S. state to ban plastic bags.
Tanya Lewis reports for
livescience.com that Te
islands of Maui, Kauai and
the Big Island have already
banned plastic bags, and Oahu
will ban them starting July
2015. Stores and restaurants
on the Big Island had been
charging customers for plastic
bags for a year.
Hawaii may be the frst
state, but Lewis also reports
that, Los Angeles banned
[plastic bags] at the beginning
of 2014, and San Francisco
and Santa Monica have bans
as well. Portland, Ore., and
Washington, D.C., have bans
too.
Governments controlling
what goods citizens can
and cannot use ofen spark
controversy, as people feel
that it is their right to choose
what they use. However, if we
continue to be apathetic to
the fate of the planet, I believe
confscation of unessential
conveniences is the next
logical step.
Some college campuses
ban plastic water bottles or
paper towels as sustainability
initiatives. It is hard to adjust
lifestyles to these changes
at frst, but eventually
routines will reform without
unnecessary waste. Sometimes
all it takes is a little push to
really discover how many
things we can live without.

Keeping Passover a challenge away from home

Im going to stand outside,


so if anyone asks,
Im outstanding.
FFA OF THE DAY
F
or those of you who
do not know, Passover
starts Tuesday.
Passover is a celebration
in the Jewish year that
commemorates the Hebrew
exodus from Egypt. During
this eight-day holiday
one may only eat specifc
foods. Tese foods do not
include anything that have
wheat, oats, rye, barley
or spelt. Tese forbidden
ingredients are referred to
as Chametz. Certain people
also refrain from eating any
product made directly out
of corn and any product
that has corn syrup or corn
oil in it. Foods that are
considered permissible to
eat on Passover are known as
kosher-for-Passover by the
Jewish community.
As you may be able to
infer, keeping Passover
is extremely difcult and
requires dedication. At
home it is much easier to
keep because my wonderful
Jewish mother is constantly
whipping up things that I
know I can eat. She spends
hours in the kitchen making
kosher-for-Passover cookies,
matzo balls and rolls. Teyre
all delicious. Meanwhile, in
college it is difcult just to
make it to the store to buy
a couple boxes of matzo so
that you can make it through
the next eight days.
So what is a college student
to do without her Jewish
mother around to help her?
As I have started to think
about how I will make it
through the eight days of
Passover, I have mapped
out a game plan. My dorm
room is stocked with matzo,
kosher-for-Passover potato
chips, fruit jellies, peanut
butter, jelly, pizza sauce,
cheese, margarine, etc. I
have also reserved my seat
at the Seder table for both
the frst and second night
of the holiday. Both Jewish
organizations on campus
ofer beautiful Seders, which
is a service and dinner
held as part of the Passover
celebration.
Even though my dorm
room is flled with delicious
food, I sometimes wish that
the University of Kansas had
more kosher-for-Passover
options. Dont get me wrong,
having matzo available
at the Underground and
in Te Union is fantastic,
but a huge problem is that
many students start to keep
Passover and then end up
having to break it early
because it is too difcult
to fnd food to eat. Maybe
campus can make some
sort of kosher-for-Passover
section somewhere so that
students who wish to keep it
can do so.
Although Passover can
sometimes be a struggle, it
is my very favorite Jewish
holiday. Some of my fondest
memories growing up
consist of sitting around
the Passover table talking
for hours with family and
friends. I love Passover
because, as strange as it
sounds, Passover food is
delicious. Specifcally, matzo
pizza is the absolute best.
If you would like to try it,
just spread a bunch of pizza
sauce on a piece of matzo,
throw on some mozzarella
cheese, and stick it in the
toaster oven until the cheese
melts.
I know that keeping
Passover in college is going
to be no easy task, but I am
willing to give it my all in
hopes of making wonderful
new memories on my
favorite Jewish Holiday.
Chag Sameach, or happy
holiday!

Japan Festival teaches
students about culture
SUNNY KIM
entertain@kansan.com
On Saturday, the Japan Fes-
tival was hosted by the Center
for East Asian Studies (CEAS)
and the Spencer Museum of
Art, where the event took
place. Te festival included
crafs, lectures and artifact ex-
hibits. With a full day to learn
about new cultures, students
and families enjoyed listening
to talks about the Japanese tea
ceremony. Participants also
toured the museum to see tea
ceremony artifacts and inter-
actively participated in a Japa-
nese drumming performance
by Tree Tails Taiko.
Since many students cant
visit other countries, in-
cluding Japan, these cultural
events are a great alternative
for students to get a glimpse
of a new culture, and to real-
ize that they are surrounded
by diferent cultures.
I always try to come to cul-
tural events or history of arts
events. I dont necessarily have
opportunities to travel much,
but I feel like living in Law-
rence and being at KU, said
Rachel Hagan, a junior from
Topeka. She said that college
is a great time to attend these
events, because they are free
for students.
Mindy Landeck, a Ph.D can-
didate in East Asian History,
lectured about her expertise
in the Japanese tea ceremony,
which was accompanied by a
video.
Most people will never get
the chance to go to Japan,
necessarily, or participate in
a tea ceremony, but you can
eat ethnic food. And for many
people this is their frst and
sometimes their only intro-
duction to a diferent culture,
Landeck said.
While some students are fa-
miliar with Japanese customs,
events such as the Japan Festi-
val are a great opportunity to
expand their knowledge.
Kate Cowger, a sophomore
from Topeka, attended the
festival to learn more about
the tea ceremony. Although
Cowger hasnt heard a lot
about Japanese culture, she
had heard about the tea cere-
monies.
I never understood what a
big deal it is, Cowger said.
Ayako Mizumura, assistant
director at CEAS and a Japa-
nese culinary expert, shared
how students at the University
can apply this lecture to their
everyday lives.
She thinks students can
show their creativity in their
food by incorporating local
ingredients. Mizumura sug-
gested using matcha powder,
green tea, to add a Japanese
take to meals you already
make.
You can be very fexible.
Lets say, you can put some
matcha powder in your pan-
cake dough and make a mat-
cha pancake. Or a sugar cook-
ie, or add matcha powder to
vanilla ice cream, Mizumura
said.
We envision this Japan fest
as a way to just introduce KU
students, and also the mem-
bers of Lawrence community,
to Japan, Landeck said. It
was a wonderful opportunity
to bring together art histo-
rians, social historians, culi-
nary experts and put together
something that would be fun
for young people, in terms of
activities, but also adults who
have an interest in Asian cul-
tures and would like to come
to some program and learn
more.
Other organizations at the
University and surrounding
areas provide many cultur-
al events where students can
experience new cultures from
around the world, too.
Just two weekends ago, the
Japanese Student Association
put on an all-day event at the
Kansas Union, also themed
around Japanese culture,
Landeck said. Tere is a vi-
brant community for that in
the larger Kansas City area,
as well. Every October, Ja-
pan-America Society in the
heartland of Kansas City of-
fers a huge Japan festival at
JCCC that is attended every
year by more than 5,000 peo-
ple from the area. So we are
just kind of one more part of
that bigger picture of doing
East Asian themed outreach,
I think.
On April 17, CEAS is host-
ing an event about food and
prostitution in Yoshiwara, a
district in Edo, present-day
Tokyo, during the time of
artist Hishikawa Moronobus.
Te event is planned for 4
p.m. in the Pine Room of the
Kansas Union.

Tony Award-winning deaf
actress Phyllis Frelich
dies at 70
Phyllis Frelich, a Tony
Award-winning deaf actress who
starred in the Broadway version
of "Children of a Lesser God," has
died. She was 70.
Frelich, died Thursday at their
home in Temple City, Calif., her
husband, Robert Steinberg, said.
She suffered from a rare degener-
ative neurological disease called
progressive supranuclear palsy, or
PSP, for which there are no treat-
ments, he said.
"She was extraordinary, the n-
est sign language actress there
ever was," he said. "We were
married for 46 years. I would have
been happy with 46 more."
A native of Devils Lake, N.D.,
Frelich graduated from the North
Dakota School for the Deaf and
Gallaudet College now Gallau-
det University in Washington,
D.C. She was the oldest of nine
deaf children born to deaf par-
ents.
Frelich became interested in
acting while at Gallaudet. She
joined the National Theatre of the
Deaf where she met Steinberg,
who worked as a scenic and light-
ing designer on several plays by
Mark Medoff.
The couple inspired Medoff to
create "Children of a Lesser God,"
which follows the relationship
between a deaf woman and a
teacher at a school for the deaf.
The production was rst staged in
New Mexico and then in Los Ange-
les. Frelich won a Tony in 1980 for
her Broadway portrayal of Sarah
Norman, the deaf woman at the
heart of the play.
"I was the rst deaf person he
had known," Frelich told The As-

him there were no roles for deaf

a play for you.' He did. He went
home and wrote 'Children of a
Lesser God.' He wanted to write

The Big Event attracts
around 3,000 volunteers
CAMPUS
INTERNATIONAL
Around 3,000 University
students woke up early and
rallied together for a day of
community service on Satur-
day morning, April 12. With
approximately 350 diferent
job sites, every helping hand
was essential in making the
Big Event a big success.
Tis is the fourth year that
the Big Event has swept over
Lawrence; it not only has a
positive efect on those receiv-
ing help from the volunteers,
but it also has a tremendous
efect on the volunteers them-
selves. Caroline Goble, a fresh-
man from Tampa, Fla., elabo-
rated on how she felt afer her
experience with Te Big Event.
Afer all of the work we did,
I felt so accomplished, Goble
said. By working together as
a team and getting everything
done, [it] makes me feel so
great about myself and our
community.
Nicole Stroda, a senior from
Gardner, explained her part in
Te Big Event.
Our job for Te Big Event
was to assist a local Lawrence
resident . and do some
things around her house that
she could not do herself, Stro-
da said.
Stroda, a resident assistant,
along with the girls who live
on her foor, further helped
this resident by washing win-
dows and scraping paint of of
the foor.
Te executive director of
this event, Michael Garrett, a
junior from Lenexa, said that
this years Big Event was even
better than previous years.
Garrett is a strong believer that
Te Big Event helps connect
Lawrence and the University
students.
Garrett said his personal fa-
vorite job of Te Big Event was
volunteering at Te Castle Tea
Room.
I could see the diference
that the volunteers made, he
said.
With Te Big Event bring-
ing in such high numbers of
volunteers, diferent tasks and
improvement every year, the
University and its students
cannot help but continue this
tradition of giving back to a
community that gives them so
much every day.

King Charles III puts British monarchy onstage
ASSOCIATED PRESS
LONDON A new play
about Britain's future king is
getting rave reviews. Once it
would have been theatrical
treason.
"King Charles III" imag-
ines the current heir, Prince
Charles, taking the throne,
with catastrophic results.
Just a few decades ago, de-
pictions of living British mon-
archs were banned from the
country's stages. Even in 2014,
Mike Bartlett's drama is draw-
ing strong reactions.
Daily Mail critic Quentin
Letts said the play "seems
anxious to provoke a serious
row" and accused it of coming
close to defamation. Te paper
headlined his story "So could
King Charles III be deposed
by scheming Kate?"
Yet most of Britain's newspa-
pers applauded the play Friday.
"Bold, brilliant and unstop-
pably entertaining," said Dom-
inic Maxwell in Te Times of
London. Charles Spencer in
the Daily Telegraph found it
"spectacular, gripping ... mov-
ing as well as funny," while
Financial Times critic Sarah
Hemming called it "scintillat-
ing and audacious."
Bartlett"s "future history
play" running at London's
Almeida Teatre imagines
the new king, uncertain of his
powers and moved by his con-
science, refusing to sign a new
law restricting press freedom.
Te British monarch must give
royal assent to all legislation,
although the signature has
long been considered a for-
mality.
Te play asks: What if a sov-
ereign decided to put Britain's
tradition-heavy, partly unwrit-
ten constitution to the test?
Onstage, the stakes quickly
get high. Soon there's a tank
outside Buckingham Palace
and chaos in the streets.
It's a dramatic scenario that
would have been impossible
few decades ago.
Until 1968, an ofcial called
the Lord Chamberlain had the
power to censor plays appear-
ing in British theaters and
depictions of reigning mon-
archs were forbidden. Previ-
ous kings and queens were
permitted, as long as they were
at least three generations in
the past. In the 1950s, the Lord
Chamberlain regularly banned
depictions of Queen Victoria,
who had died half a century
earlier.
Tings loosed up in the
1960s, and since then Britons
have grown steadily less defer-
ential helped along by the
1990s' scandals and divorces of
Queen Elizabeth II's children,
including Charles from Prin-
cess Diana.
Change came to the theater
with "A Question of Attri-
bution," a 1988 play by Alan
Bennett about Anthony Blunt,
who was the queen's person-
al art adviser and a Soviet
spy. Prunella Scales played the
monarch, never referred to by
name, as perceptive and intel-
ligent.
"Tat made such a difer-
ence," said John Snelson, a
publications editor at the Royal
Opera House and a stage his-
torian. "Since then, of course,
who hasn't played her?"
Helen Mirren has made a
mini-career of monarchy,
playing Elizabeth II on screen
in the Oscar-winning flm "Te
Queen" and onstage in Pe-
ter Morgan's "Te Audience,"
which depicted the monarch
as voice of reason across a se-
ries of sometimes impetuous
prime ministers.
Moira Bufni's play "Hand-
bagged," currently running in
London's West End, dramatiz-
es Elizabeth II's testy relation-
ship with Conservative Prime
Minister Margaret Tatcher.
Both those plays are af-
fectionate portrayals of the
much-loved monarch. "King
Charles III" presents a more
ambiguous ruler and asks un-
settling questions.
Bartlett's script is in qua-
si-Shakespearean blank verse,
and Rupert Goold stages it
with a strong sense of pag-
eantry. Charles has echoes of
Shakespeare's dithering royals,
Hamlet and Macbeth, as well
as of the anguished King Lear.
Tim Pigott-Smith captures
Charles' mannerisms and
plausibly suggests his complex
inner life. He's surrounded
by the smooth, afable Prince
William, the steely Kate and
the carousing Harry, longing
to break free from his gilded
cage. Tere is even the ghost of
his ex-wife the late Princess
Diana to haunt the pro-
ceedings.
Snelson thinks there are still
taboos around depicting the
royal family onstage. Sex, he
said, is still "a very uncomfort-
able area with royalty."
But he's confdent play-
wrights will keep returning to
the topic. Te drama of a pri-
vate individual who is also a
symbol of the state makes roy-
alty an irresistible subject.
"Monarchs are not just a
breed," Snelson said. "It's very
much to do with how the in-
dividual relates to the role.
Tat's where the drama comes
through. Can they hack it?"

RED BLUFF, Calif. Federal
investigators said Sunday that
they haven't found physical
evidence confrming a wit-
ness' claim that a FedEx truck
was on fre before it slammed
into a bus carrying high school
students, killing 10 people in
Northern California.
National Transportation Safe-
ty Board member Mark Rose-
kind said that investigators are
not ruling out a pre-impact
fre, but a fre expert did not
fnd evidence of fames as the
truck crossed a median, side-
swiped a Nissan Altima and
crashed into the bus.
"Tis is all preliminary and
factual information," Rosekind
said at a news conference. "We
are not ruling anything out."
Te bus was carrying 44
Southern California high
school students to a free cam-
pus tour of Humboldt State
University. Five students, three
adult chaperones and both
drivers died and dozens were
injured in Tursday's collision
in Orland, a small city about
100 miles north of Sacramen-
to.
Bonnie Duran, who drove the
Altima and survived with mi-
nor injuries, told investigators
and reporters Saturday that
she had seen fames emerg-
ing from the lower rear of the
truck's cab as it approached
her car. Te bus was gutted and
the truck was a mangled mess
afer an explosion sent fames
towering and black smoke
billowing, making it difcult
for investigators to track the
source of the fre.
Rosekind said a blood test of
the FedEx truck driver could
indicate whether he inhaled
smoke before his death. A
family member told the Sacra-
mento Bee that the truck driv-
er was Tim Evans, 32, of Elk
Grove, Calif.
Te biggest questions for in-
vestigators include why the
truck had lef its lane and did
not leave behind tire marks,
suggesting the driver did not
brake. Te investigation will
review maintenance records
and the driver's medical his-
tory, experience and potential
impairment.
Te bus' black box-style elec-
tronic control module was re-
covered and will be analyzed.
Te truck's device was de-
stroyed, but investigators will
take other steps to analyze its
speed and maneuvering.
Beyond the cause of the crash,
the NTSB will examine if any
of its safety recommendations
could have reduced the death
and injury toll.
In this case, the transporta-
tion authorities are focusing
on seatbelts, escape routes and
fre safety, though it has no au-
thority to enforce measures it
recommends.
Te victims included passen-
gers who were thrown from
the bus, a brand new 2014
model that had seatbelts. Un-
der a rule long sought by Ro-
sekind's agency, all new motor
coaches and some other large
buses must include three-
point lap-shoulder belts by
2016. But Rosekind said it's
difcult to issue guidelines to
enforce seatbelt use while they
aren't mandated.
"In the absence of a fight at-
tendant, the likelihood of any-
one on a bus buckling is slim,"
said Larry Hanley, president of
Amalgamated Transit Union
representing bus drivers and
advocating for policies reduc-
ing driver fatigue.
Bodies recovered from the
bus were charred beyond rec-
ognition. Te transportation
board has also called for mea-
sures to detect and suppress
fres and make buses less vul-
nerable to blazes afer a 2005
bus fre killed 23 nursing home
evacuees escaping Hurricane
Rita in Texas. Rosekind said
investigators will examine the
materials and design of the bus
to withstand fres.
Fire-suppression systems,
now under study by the federal
government, are designed with
blazes that start in engines and
wheels. Te systems, akin to a
hand-held extinguisher auto-
matically dousing the frst em-
bers and sparks, aren't suited
for massive blazes following
collisions, said Joey Peoples, a
vehicle fre safety expert for SP
Fire Research.
"Once you have a fre, it's now
simply a matter of how do we
buy enough time to evacuate
all the passengers," Peoples
said.
Almost every window on
the bus involved with Turs-
day's crash was available as
an emergency exit, Rosekind
said Sunday. Students escaped
through them before the fery
explosion that devoured the
vehicles.
However, safety standards
to make large buses easier for
passengers to escape afer a
crash have not been adopted
15 years afer accident investi-
gators called for new rules.
Te NTSB will also evaluate
whether there should have
been a barrier on the median
to help prevent head-on col-
lisions. Barriers are required
when medians are less than 50
feet wide; this one was 60.

I AM A BULLY sign-holder
says punishment is unfair
NATIONAL
SOUTH EUCLID, Ohio
An Ohio man who spent hours
on a street corner Sunday with
a sign declaring he's a bully
says that the punishment in a
disorderly conduct case was
unfair and that the judge who
sentenced him has ruined his
life.
Sixty-two-year-old Edmond
Aviv mostly ignored honking
horns and people who stopped
by to talk with him in South
Euclid, the Northeast Ohio
Media Group reported.
"Te judge destroyed me,"
Aviv said. "Tis isn't fair at all."
Te sentence stemmed from
a neighborhood dispute in
which a woman said Aviv had
bullied her and her disabled
children for years. Aviv plead-
ed no contest to a misdemean-
or disorderly conduct charge,
and Municipal Court Judge
Gayle Williams-Byers ordered
him to display the sign for fve
hours Sunday as part of his
sentence.
Te judge selected the word-
ing for it: "I AM A BULLY! I
pick on children that are dis-
abled, and I am intolerant of
those that are diferent from
myself. My actions do not re-
fect an appreciation for the di-
verse South Euclid community
that I live in."
Aviv arrived at the corner
with the sign just before 9 a.m.
Sunday. Within a couple of
minutes, a passing motorist
honked a car horn. Later in
the morning, he was sitting in
a chair holding the hand-let-
tered sign in front of him.
Dozens of drivers honked
their horns and some pass-
ers-by yelled at him. Some pe-
destrians took pictures.
Aviv denied bullying his
neighbors, but declined to
answer other questions. A
court probation ofcer moni-
tored him, and Aviv's attorney
stopped by to check on him.
Te lawyer didn't immediately
return telephone calls to his of-
fce Sunday.
Aviv has feuded with his
neighbor Sandra Prugh for
the past 15 years, court re-
cords show. Te most recent
case stemmed from Aviv being
annoyed at the smell coming
from Prugh's dryer vent when
she did laundry, according
to the records. In retaliation,
Aviv hooked up kerosene to a
fan, which blew the smell onto
Pugh's property, the records
said.
Prugh has two adult adopted
children with developmental
disabilities, cerebral palsy and
epilepsy. Her husband has de-
mentia and her son is para-
lyzed.
Prugh said in a letter to the
court that Aviv had called her
an ethnic slur while she was
holding her adopted black
children, spit on her several
times, regularly threw dog fe-
ces on her son's car windshield
and once smeared feces on a
wheelchair ramp.
"I am very concerned for the
safety of our family," Prugh
wrote in a letter to the court
for Aviv's sentencing. She said
she just wants to live in peace.
Te judge also ordered Aviv
to serve 15 days in jail and
undergo anger management
classes and counseling. Aviv
also had to submit an apology
letter to Prugh.
"I want to express my sincere
apology for acting irrationally
towards your house and the
safety of your children," Aviv
wrote. "I understand my ac-
tions could have caused harm
but at that time I was not really
thinking about it."

LAS VEGAS A Phoenix
woman accused of throwing
a shoe some 60 feet toward
Hillary Rodham Clinton ap-
peared aware during ques-
tioning by U.S. Secret Service
agents of the allegation against
her, authorities said Friday.
Alison Michelle Ernst, 36,
was given a misdemeanor
disorderly conduct sum-
mons and freed afer she was
booked at the Clark County
jail, according to a Las Vegas
police arrest report.
"Ms. Ernst appeared to be in
an agitated state but aware of
what she had just done," the
report said.
Ernst could face up to a
year in the county lockup if
she is convicted of violating a
county ordinance during the
Tursday incident at the Man-
dalay Bay hotel-casino.
She is accused of bypassing
security and walking quickly
toward a rope line about six
rows from the front of a con-
ference audience. Police say
she reached into a purse, re-
moved the shoe and threw it
overhand toward the stage.
Clinton ducked and wasn't
struck. She appeared startled
but quickly cracked a couple
jokes before continuing her
keynote speech to the Institute
of Scrap Recycling Industries.
Te audience applauded.
Ernst was ushered by securi-
ty guards out of the ballroom
with her hands in the air and
sat calmly aferward on a
sofa in a hallway. She wore a
blonde wig, blue dress and
thong sandals.
She told an Associated Press
reporter she threw a shoe and
dropped some papers but did
not identify herself or explain
the action. Security ofcers
ushered reporters and pho-
tographers away.
A jail booking photo, taken
later, shows Ernst with short
brown hair.
She couldn't immediately be
reached Friday. It wasn't clear
if she had a lawyer.
Brian Spellacy, Secret Ser-
vice supervisory special agent
in Las Vegas, said an orange
and black athletic shoe was re-
covered from the stage.
Clinton has Secret Service
protection because former
presidents and their spouses
are covered for their lifetime,
Spellacy said.
Authorities said Ernst wasn't
a credentialed conference at-
tendee and wasn't supposed
to have been in the ballroom.

Utah woman arrested after 7 dead babies found
Woman accused of tossing
shoe at Clinton released
PLEASANT GROVE, Utah
A Utah woman accused of
killing seven babies she gave
birth to over 10 years was ar-
rested Sunday afer police dis-
covered the tiny bodies stufed
in separate cardboard boxes in
the garage of her former home.
Megan Huntsman, 39, who
lived in the Pleasant Grove
home until three years ago,
had the infants between 1996
and 2006, investigators said.
Neighbors in the mid-
dle-class neighborhood of
mostly older homes 35 miles
south of Salt Lake City say
they were shocked by the accu-
sations and perplexed that the
woman's older children still
living in the home didn't know
their mother was pregnant or
notice anything suspicious.
Ofcers responded to a call
Saturday from Huntsman's
estranged husband about a
dead infant at the home, police
Capt. Michael Roberts said.
Ofcers then discovered the
six other bodies.
Roberts declined to com-
ment on a motive. He said it
wasn't clear if she has an at-
torney. Huntsman was booked
Sunday into the Utah County
Jail on six counts of murder. It
wasn't immediately clear why
there were six counts and not
seven.
Te spokesman said police
believe the estranged husband
and Huntsman were together
when the babies were born,
but the man isn't a person of
interest at this time. His name
was not immediately released.
"We don't believe he had any
knowledge of the situation,"
Roberts told Te Associated
Press.
Asked how the man could
not have known, Roberts re-
plied, "Tat's the million-dol-
lar question. Amazing."
Te babies' bodies were sent
to the Utah medical examin-
er's ofce for tests, including
one to determine the cause
of death. DNA samples tak-
en from the suspect and her
husband will determine de-
fnitively whether the two are
the parents as investigators
believe.
Police say the husband was
cleaning out the garage when
he made the grisly discovery
at the house owned by his
parents in a city at the foot of
snow-capped mountains. It's
a nondescript, newer home
with a brick facade and a star
ornament hanging by the door.
Several police cars blocked the
entrance to the house Sun-
day evening as ofcers milled
about with the belongings
from the garage strewn across
the front lawn.
Neighbors told the AP they
were shocked and horrifed by
the accusations. None of them
even knew Huntsman was
pregnant in recent years.
Te family members seemed
like nice people, said Aaron
and Kathie Hawker, who live
next door.
Huntsman moved out sev-
eral years ago, leaving her
three daughters, one teenager
and two young adults, to live
alone, the Hawkers said. Tey
weren't sure where Huntsman
has since been living.
Years ago, Huntsman ba-
by-sat the Hawker grandchil-
dren and they were friendly
with each other.
"It makes us so sad, we want
to cry," Kathie Hawker said.
"We enjoyed having them as a
neighbor. Tis has just blown
us away."
Aaron Hawker said he talk-
ed with the husband Saturday
morning. He told Hawker he
was cleaning out the mess in
the garage.
"Two hours later, suddenly
we had all these policemen
here," Aaron Hawker said.
Fred Newman, a neighbor
whose cousin is the husband's
mother, said he's perplexed
how the three oldest daughters
living there didn't know about
what police say was going on.
He said the girls didn't always
park their cars in the garage,
but did sometimes in the cold
winter months.
He said he has used his
snow-blower to clean of the
driveway of the home and the
young women would thank
him.
Roberts said the case has
been "emotionally draining"
and upsetting to investigators.

HARTFORD, Conn.
Nothing like a big win to draw
big crowds. But back-to-back
victories bring out the biggest.
Hundreds of thousands of
University of Connecticut
fans jammed the streets of
downtown Hartford on Sun-
day screaming for their victo-
rious UConn Huskies.
Police described the out-
pouring more than 200,000
people as the largest event
anyone could remember in
the city of Hartford big-
ger than the St. Patrick's Day
parade, bigger than the 2004
UConn basketball celebra-
tion.
"Next to having my children
and marrying my wife, this
is the greatest moment of my
life," said UConn alumnus
Brian Fitzgerald of Glaston-
bury as he cheered the team.
Fitzgerald had stood in the
stands in Texas several days
earlier, cheering on the men's
team as they won the NCAA
championship. Te women
won the next day, emerging
victorious over a strong Notre
Dame team.
Te women's dominance
was unsurprising they have
won a record nine NCAA
championships under coach
Geno Auriemma, beating the
previous NCAA record of
eight wins by the University of
Tennessee women's team.
Te men's win was more
stunning, an unexpected run
with neophyte coach and for-
mer UConn star Kevin Ollie
that gave the men a fourth na-
tional title.
On Sunday, the women
waved gleefully from an open
truck rolling out of the state
Capitol grounds onto the
streets, followed by a truck
carrying a grinning men's
team.
A passel of leashed Sibe-
rian Huskies the UConn
mascot and their handlers
strode by, Mariana Aguirre of
Bristol waved a sign reading
"Top Dogs Again." A fan of
the women's team, Aguirre
stood with a crowd of friends
who included UConn alumni.
"I like the discipline the
women show," she said. "I like

MARATHON
North Koreas capital hosts international marathon
ASSOCIATED PRESS
PYONGYANG, North Korea
Te streets of North Korea's
showcase capital were flled
with runners from all over
the world on Sunday for the
annual Pyongyang marathon,
which was open to foreign
amateurs this year for the frst
time.
Tens of thousands of North
Koreans lined the streets to
applaud, cheer and some-
times high-fve the runners,
who were followed by a truck
blaring patriotic music. Tey
stood and roared as North Ko-
rea's Pak Chol, who completed
the men's event in 2 hours,
12 minutes and 26 seconds,
crossed the fnish line. Com-
patriots Kim Hye Gyong and
her twin sister, Kim Hye Song,
fnished frst and second in the
women's race. Te winning
women's time was 2:27:04.
Known ofcially as the
Mangyongdae Prize Interna-
tional Marathon, the race is
sanctioned as a bronze-label
event by the International
Association of Athletics Fed-
erations and has been held
annually for 27 years. Organiz-
ers said they decided to allow
foreign recreational runners
because they wanted to hold
a grander race as part of the
series of sporting competi-
tions, arts festivals and cultur-
al events marking the birthday
of the nation's founder, Kim Il
Sung, on April 15.
Much of North Korea re-
mains of-limits to foreigners,
but Pyongyang, with its broad
avenues, plazas and ubiquitous
monuments, is more accessible
than other places in the secre-
tive and isolated country.
Te opening of the race to
recreational runners is in keep-
ing with the North's ongoing
efort to earn cash revenue by
boosting tourism, usually with
group tours to major arts per-
formances or attractions the
North wants to show of. Tour-
ism agencies that specialize in
North Korea said they were
surprised by the large number
of entries they received, but
noted most were from tour-
ists who primarily wanted to
take advantage of the oppor-
tunity to see Pyongyang close
up, rather than compete in the
race itself.
Ofcials said runners from
27 countries took part this
year, including 225 amateurs.
Tough the race has long
featured elite athletes from
around the world, organizers
decided to make it easier for
fun-runners to join in by re-
quiring only that the course be
completed in four hours so
the roads could be reopened
and by also holding a half
marathon and a 10-kilometer
run.
"I really wanted to do this
race because of the location,"
said 10-kilometer runner Jen
Skym, a 32-year-old Briton
living in Hong Kong, who is
also four months pregnant.
"Te scenery was fantastic,
and there were so many people
watching. It was good motiva-
tion to get back into running. I
really enjoyed it."
Runners on the generally fat,
full-marathon course did four
loops around the center of the
city of 2.5 million, starting at
Kim Il Sung Stadium, moving
past the Arch of Triumph, the
Friendship Tower and the Kim
Il Sung University area. Tey
then crossed a bridge to the
east side of the city and wound
their way along the river bank
to the stadium. Te capac-
ity crowd of 42,000 specta-
tors back in the stadium were
treated to soccer games and
martial arts exhibitions while
they waited for the runners to
return.
Earlier this year, North Ko-
rea's government announced
a plan to create special trade
and tourism zones across the
country and unveiled its frst
luxury ski resort, aimed large-
ly at luring ski enthusiasts
from abroad. Under the watch
of young leader Kim Jong Un,
the North has also been giving
sports in general a higher pro-
fle. Simple recreational sports
facilities, such as outdoor bas-
ketball courts and roller skat-
ing rinks, have been popping
up lately in Pyongyang and
some other cities.
"I go to international races
every year, but this one just
strikes me as the most unique,"
said Jacob Young, of Nova Sco-
tia, Canada. "It's very novel.
Usually I would imagine it's
the tourists here looking out
at the local people. Here, it's
them looking at us. We are the
show."
To keep the show from get-
ting too colorful, however,
the foreign runners were in-
structed not to carry U.S. or
Japanese fags, or wear cloth-
ing with large writing or that
was deemed inappropriately
attention-getting or political
though one wore blue jeans
for the 10-kilometer event.
Runners said they were also
not allowed to carry cameras
during the race, though they
snapped away aferward inside
the stadium.
"Basically, we just had to wear
regular running clothes," said
Will Erskine, of Melbourne,
Australia. "Some people might
have wanted to shoot pictures
the whole time. But I don't
think it was all that unusual. It
was a good experience."

tournament game against Minnesota on Saturday in Philadelphia. Union won 7-4.

I go to international races every year, but this one just strikes


me as the most unique.

PHILADELPHIA Tiny
Union College skated of with
the biggest trophy in college
hockey.
And the Dutchmen did it
at the expense of two of the
sport's giants, toppling Min-
nesota for its frst NCAA title
afer beating Boston College in
the semifnals.
Union scored three times in
a 1:54 span in the frst period
in a 7-4 victory Saturday, two
nights afer Daniel Ciampini
scored three goals in a 5-4 win
over Boston College.
"I don't think anyone will call
us Cinderella anymore," said
Shayne Gostisbehere, who had
a goal and two assists against
the Gophers.
Union (32-6-4) won its fnal
12 games and went 16-0-1 in
its last 17. Te 2,200-student
liberal arts college in Schenect-
ady, N.Y., competes in Division
III in all other sports.
"Tey came as advertised,"
Minnesota coach Don Lucia
said. "We knew it going in."
Afer Minnesota took a 2-1
lead, Mike Vecchione tied it
with 4:01 lef in the frst, Eli
Lichtenwald gave Union the
lead 57 seconds later, and Ci-
ampini capped the spree with
2:57 to go.
"Te staple of our team all
year we come in waves,"
Union captain Mat Bodie said.
"All three of those goals were
pack-of-wolf goals where we
were just throwing the puck
on net."
Bodie, Max Novak and Kevin
Sullivan also scored and Colin
Stevens made 36 saves.
"A little bit speechless right
now," third-year coach Rick
Bennett said. "Just happy for
our school, for this program
and the past players. It's an un-
believable experience."
Justin Kloos, Sam Warning,
Taylor Cammarata and Hud-
son Fasching scored for Min-
nesota (28-7-6). Adam Wilcox
stopped 41 shots for the fve-
time champion Gophers.
"Both teams are better de-
fensively than a 7-4 score
shows," Bodie said. "It's just
one of those games where cra-
zy bounces happen. We just
wanted to stick with our pro-
cess. We thought we were play-
ing pretty well and great things
happened."
Cammarata pulled Minne-
sota within one with the lone
goal in the second period, but
Novak restored the two-goal
cushion on a defection at 5:31
of the third.
Fasching cut it to 5-4 with a
power-play goal with 3:40 lef.
Sullivan put it away with 1:22
to go, and Bodie scored into an
empty net with 44.2 seconds
remaining.
"Just one shif at a time,"
Bodie said. "Tis is the biggest
game of our lives, hands down,
but you've got to treat it like
any other game. It was tough,
I had people texting me, peo-
ple calling me and stuf, and,
you know, it was real tough
to keep that mindset, but with
our sport psychologist we were
able to get that done."
Kloos opened the scoring on
a rebound 2:37 into the frst
period. Gostisbehere respond-
ed by weaving through three
opponents and beating Wilcox
with a wrist shot to glove side
at 9:26.
"He controlled the game,"
Lucia said about Gostisbehere.
"From my vantage point, he
was the best player on the ice
tonight."
Less than a minute afer
Gostisbehere's goal, Warning
squeaked a bad-angle shot be-
tween Stevens and the pipe to
put Minnesota up 2-1.
Te Dutchmen took over
from there.
Minnesota lost for the sev-
enth time in the title game. Te
Gophers were making their
frst appearance in the cham-
pionship game since winning
their second straight title in
2003.

PRETORIA, South Afri-
ca Prosecutor Gerrie Nel
fred another tough question
at murder suspect Oscar Pis-
torius.
"Are you sure, Mr Pistorius,
that Reeva did not scream afer
you fred the frst shot?" asked
Nel.
Te athlete, who earlier said
he was tired and struggling
under the relentless interro-
gation, leaned back in the wit-
ness box and remained silent.
Te wood-lined courtroom in
South Africa was hushed and
expectant on Friday. Was Pis-
torius thinking through an an-
swer, or was he on the verge of
an emotional outburst, or was
he refecting on his predica-
ment and Reeva Steenkamp,
the girlfriend he killed in his
home last year?
Afer a tense pause, the
Olympic athlete said he wished
Steenkamp had let him know
she was in the toilet cubicle
where he shot her by mis-
take, according to his account.
He said she did not scream, but
also that his ears were ringing
with the gunshot and he would
not have heard screams.
Pistorius ofen seemed worn
down as the caustic prosecutor
picked holes in parts of his sto-
ry. Te dramatic cross-exam-
ination has drawn attention to
Nel, a prominent state prose-
cutor dubbed "pitbull" in local
media and on social networks
for his combative, ofen efec-
tive style.
One of the highlights of his
career came in 2010 when he
secured the conviction on cor-
ruption charges of Jackie Sele-
bi, a former national police
commissioner and ex-pres-
ident of Interpol Nel got
an international prosecutors'
award for his eforts in that
case.
Now Nel's international pro-
fle is ascending further afer
three days of challenging and
even ridiculing the claim by
Pistorius, 27, that he acciden-
tally killed Steenkamp, 29, by
fring through a closed toilet
door, mistaking her for an
intruder in his house before
dawn on Feb. 14, 2013. Te
prosecution says the dou-
ble-amputee runner is lying,
and that he killed his girlfriend
afer an argument during
which she fed into the toilet
cubicle to seek refuge. Nel will
continue questioning Pistorius
on Monday.
A radio station made a par-
ody rap song about defense
lawyer Barry Roux, and now
Nel has one too ("Tey call me
Gerrie Nel/And I am mad as
hell.") In Te Times, a South
African newspaper, cartoonist
Zapiro depicted Nel as a bullet,
his head on the tip, speeding
toward an alarmed Pistorius.
He has a gentler side, accord-
ing to Rapport newspaper. It
reported that in his personal
time, Nel teaches young chil-
dren how to wrestle and that
he is patient and never loses
his temper with his students.
Pistorius' murder trial is be-
ing broadcast on television.
While Pistorius is not shown
on the screen during his tes-
timony, viewers have watched
Nel browbeat the once globally
admired fgure who reached a
pinnacle when he ran in the
London Olympics in 2012.
Pistorius, who has been free on
bail for the last year, could be
jailed for 25 years to life if con-
victed of premeditated murder
and also faces three separate,
gun-related charges.
"You will blame anybody
but yourself," Nel told Pisto-
rius last week in an attack on
the character of the athlete. It
was an attempt to shred the
defense's presentation of its
client as humble, responsible
and loving toward the wom-
an he killed. At one point,
Nel laughed derisively at one
of a number of answers from
Pistorius that he described as
evasive or contradictory, or
downright false, prompting
Judge Tokozile Masipa to
reprimand the prosecutor for
the outburst.
On another occasion, Ma-
sipa cautioned Nel to "mind
your language" for accusing
the athlete of lying.
In 2008, Nel was arrested in
what his backers said was an
attempt to interfere with the
case against Selebi, the former
police chief, but he was soon
cleared. Nel was also head
of the regional branch of the
Scorpions, a crime-fghting
unit that was later disbanded
in a decision that raised con-
cern about the independence
of law enforcement from pol-
itics. He was a prosecutor in a
case leading to the convictions
of two men for the 1993 killing
of Chris Hani, an anti-apart-
heid leader whose death
stirred fears of racial violence
as South Africa transitioned
from white rule to an all-race
democracy.
Surrounded by security, Pis-
torius daily leaves the Pretoria
court to fend his way through
a crush of press and bystand-
ers. On a recent afernoon,
Nel lef the court quietly, un-
assuming in a dark suit and
open-necked shirt. Despite
his newfound celebrity status,
he walked across the street, al-
most unnoticed.

LEGAL
AUGUSTA, Ga. One of
golf 's most exciting players
squeezed most of the drama
out of the Masters on Sunday.
Tat's just fne with Bubba
Watson.
All he cared about was slip-
ping into that green jacket.
Instead of hitting a 40-yard
hook out of a forest of Georgia
pines the signature shot in
his playof victory two years
ago the fnal act Sunday at
Augusta National took place
on the 18th green. Watson had
a three-shot lead and consult-
ed with his caddie on a 15-foot
birdie putt.
"I went over to him and I
said, 'I'm not very good at
math, but we've got four putts,
right?'" Watson said.
Tis was more about great
golf than Bubba golf.
Watson kept his poise during
an early burst of birdies from
20-year-old Jordan Spieth,
turned the tournament in his
favor with consecutive two-
shot swings to close out the
front nine, and coasted to a
3-under 69 to win the Masters
by three shots over Spieth and
Jonas Blixt of Sweden.
"Small-town guy named
Bubba now has two green jack-
ets," Watson said. "It's pretty
wild."
Watson made it look rou-
tine over the fnal hour. On
a Sunday when Spieth was
trying to become the young-
est winner in Masters history
and 50-year-old Miguel Angel
Jimenez had a chance to be-
come the oldest major champi-
on, Watson turned in another
masterpiece and joined an elite
group as the 17th player to win
multiple Masters.
Surprisingly for Augusta, the
most compelling action was on
the front nine.
His only nervous moment
was a drive so mammoth
around the corner on the 13th
hole that it clipped a few trees
and still went some 360 yards,
leaving just a sand wedge into
the par 5. Tat was his lone
birdie on the back nine. No
one got closer than three shots
the rest of the way.
"Te shot out of the woods
made me famous," Watson
said. "But this one was a lot
better for me and my nerves."
Tis was nothing like the
Masters he won two years ago,
especially when it was over.
When he tapped in for par on
18, there was 2-year-old Caleb
decked out in a green-and-
white striped Masters shirt and
green tennis shoes walking
toward him. Watson had tears
streaming down his face when
he scooped him up, a prize as
great as the green jacket.
"Seeing him back there ...
what an amazing feeling as a
parent," he said. "And then
throw on the green jacket on
top of it just changes every-
thing."
Afer high-fving the crowd
on his way to sign his card,
Watson returned to Butler
Cabin to take back that green
jacket afer slipping it on
Adam Scott a year ago.
"Afer giving it away last year,
I wanted it back," Watson said.
"I told Adam we could just
swap it back and forth every
year."
Spieth could only watch from
the side of the green.
He dazzled the massive
crowd early by holing out for
birdie from the front bunker
on No. 4, and making back-
to-back birdies to build a
two-shot lead through seven
holes. Bidding to become the
frst player in 35 years to win
a green jacket in his frst try,
Spieth looked to be well on his
way.
But he three-putted for bo-
gey on No. 8 the frst six on
his card all week as Watson
got up-and-down for birdie
to tie for the lead. Spieth then
made a rookie mistake, leaving
his approach below the fag-
stick on No. 9 and watching
it roll back into the fairway,
setting up another bogey and
two-shot swing.
Whatever prayer he had
might have ended at Amen
Corner.
His tee shot on No. 12 found
Rae's Creek. He missed a short
birdie attempt on the 13th.
Watson was too powerful,
too experienced, too tough
to beat. Spieth closed with
six pars for a 72 and tied for
second with Blixt, who nev-
er went away but never really
threatened. Blixt shot a 71.
"Obviously, I've worked my
whole life to lead Augusta on
Sunday. And although I feel
like it's very early in my career,
and I'll have more chances, it's
a stinger," Spieth said.
Watson fnished at 8-under
280 and goes to a career-best
No. 4 in the world.
Nine players were separated
by three shots at the start of
the fnal round only for this to
turn into a two-man show. For
the opening two hours, it was
anything but dull.
Afer trading pars on the
opening hole, either Watson or
Spieth sometimes both
made birdie or bogey over the
next nine holes.
Two holes to close out the
back nine changed everything.
Amen Corner swung the Mas-
ters in Watson's favor for good.
Watson won for the second
time this year, and his second
major puts him at the top of
the Ryder Cup standings.

COZART TO PUT ON WEIGHT
DURING OFFSEASON
Sophomore Montell Cozarts
development as a dual-threat
quarterback has been a thor-
ough process that has experi-
enced some hiccups and some
signs of encouragement along
the way.
On Saturday, he showed
more poised version of him-
self, navigating the pocket
with the confdence that a sec-
ond-year quarterback should.
Right now Im really happy
that we made the decision to
play him last year, said coach
Charlie Weis. Tat was not
the easiest decision to make
when you could try to save
him. He looks like a diferent
player.
To embellish Cozarts pres-
ence as a more prevalent pock-
et passer who is able to shed
the hits, Cozart intends to put
on more weight in the ofsea-
son. Te quarterback said that
the coaches approached him
and wanted him to bulk up be-
fore the 2014 season.
Putting on some weight,
thats what Ill work on,
Cozart said. Trying to get to
205. I got to get some weight
on.
Cozart currently sits at 180
pounds.
NEW OFFENSE GRADUALLY
IMPROVES AFTER A ROUGH
FIRST HALF
On Tuesday, Weis hinted at
the notion that the installment
of the ofense in the spring
game would be vastly diferent
from actual game planning for
an opponent and it held true.
John Reagan, the new ofen-
sive coordinator, didnt hold
back implementing some trick
plays, options and a broader
version of what the ofense will
eventually be narrowed down
to in the fall.
Moving the ball was burden-
some in Reagans new ofense
out of the gate as the frst team
ofense had some trouble early
on and couldnt work out the
kinks.
Senior quarterback Jake
Heaps didnt complete a pass
in the entire frst half, and
combined with Cozarts out-
put, accumulated four total
passing yards.
It failed to cross midfeld the
entire frst half.
Tey did have some bad
feld positions, but they got
into some long yardage sit-
uations on top of that they
couldnt convert on, Weis said.
In the second half I thought
they played much cleaner and
more the way we would like to
be playing.
It picked up in the second
half thanks to some lengthy
runs by Cozart and locked into
the fow of the ofense, spread-
ing the ball through the air
much more efciently, amass-
ing 95 total passing yards in
the second half.
Te newly incorporated of-
fense features much more
no-huddle, spread formations
with designed runs and zone
reads mixed in. All of the nu-
ances are still being cultivated,
but overall it has been steadily
settling in.
Tere are two diferent types
of questions. One is the com-
petition. Weis said. Teres
those types of questions then
there is how fast and how
much of the ofense are players
going to be able to handle right
of the bat and get ready to go.
Im generally pleased with how
much theyve picked up.
TRE PARMALEE THROWS FIRST
TOUCHDOWN PASS OF THE GAME
While Cozart didnt throw
a touchdown pass, his room-
mate and his high school
teammate from Bishop Miege,
junior wide receiver Tre Par-
malee, did.
Parmalee, receiving the ball
on a reverse handof, connect-
ed with senior wide receiver
Andrew Turzilli for a 26-yard
touchdown pass, which ignit-
ed some back and forth be-
tween him and Cozart.
Tats my roommate so I
had to give him some stuf
about it, Cozart said. He let
it go, he threw a perfect ball.
Weis jumped in on the fun
between the two in the locker
room afer the game.
We have fnally found a
Bishop Miege quarterback that
can throw, Weis said.

Game.
Cozart shows promise as quarterback at spring scrimmage
BEN BURCH
sports@kansan.com
It wasnt the frst time soph-
omore quarterback Montell
Cozarts speed was displayed at
Memorial Stadium, but it was
fun to watch nonetheless.
With a little over six min-
utes lef in the fourth quarter
of the Jayhawks spring foot-
ball scrimmage, Cozart took a
shotgun snap and began read-
ing the defense for the option
play. Seeing that the opposing
linebacker was closing on the
running back, Cozart tucked
the ball under his arm and de-
cided to keep it himself, run-
ning through a hole opened up
by his ofensive line. Bouncing
outside, Cozart turned on the
jets, beating the defense to
the sideline and turning it up
feld. From there, it was of to
the races, with freshman safety
Tevin Shaw right on Cozarts
heels. It looked as though
Cozart would take it all the
way until Shaw made a last-
ditch efort, leaping and push-
ing Cozart of balance, causing
Cozart to step on the sideline
at the three-yard line before he
could cross into the endzone.
Or, at least, the referee said
Cozart stepped out.
I defnitely think I got in [for
a touchdown], Cozart said.
Tey said I stepped out, but I
dont think so.
In the end it wouldnt matter
that the 60-yard run didnt fn-
ish in a touchdown, as Cozart
would run the ball across the
goal line just two plays later
on a two-yard rush, marking
his second rushing touchdown
of the day and giving the blue
squad the 19-10 lead over the
white team. He would fnish
the day with 70 rushing yards
and two rushing touchdowns
to go along with a solid 58
yards on six for ten passing.
Cozart, who began to show
fashes of potential at the end
of last season, pleased many
with his performance, includ-
ing coach Charlie Weis.
I was pleased to see [Mon-
tell] sit in the pocket I like
to see him do that and throw
the ball down the feld and
drop back passes, Weis said.
We know he can bootleg and
run on the edge, but it was
good to see him show some
poise in the pocket.
Although Cozart had a good
outing, he still does not have
the starting quarterback job
for this season locked up, as
hes currently in a battle with
senior Jake Heaps, who split
playing time with Cozart as
the blue teams quarterback at
the game. Heaps did not have
the kind of day Cozart had,
tossing for 41 yards on an in-
efcient three for nine passing.
But, even though Cozart had
the better game, Weis claims
he is in no rush to pick his
starter yet, saying they plan on
using the uncertainty of who
the quarterback will be to their
advantage.
Why should we tell the op-
ponents [who the starter is]?
[B]ecause now every team
well be playing against can
sit there and say the guy is
[Cozart] and just gets ready
for the things youre going to
do with [Cozart], Weis said.
Montell played better than
everyone today, but that has
not been a daily [occurrence].
Even though the starting
quarterback job is still up in
the air, days like today give
Cozart a good shot at securing
it, as he showed he has the abil-
ity to afect games in a variety
of ways. As expected, Cozarts
running game stood out, as his
70 rushing yards trailed only
junior running back Brandon
Bourbons 96 rushing yards
for the most in the game.
While the 60-yard run stood
out as the clearest example of
his running prowess, other
plays in the game showed that
Cozarts quick feet can also
help him avoid sacks and ex-
tend broken plays.
[Extending plays] is just
something I do. Tats just
the kind of quarterback I am,
Cozart said. Tey tell me
when the pass is not there or
the frst read is not there to be
able to move around the pock-
et while still looking down
feld and be able to extend
those plays and be able to still
make a throw.
What was more surprising
than his efective game on
the ground was that Cozart,
who struggled at times with
his passing game last season,
looked impressive through the
air, making accurate throws
both across the middle and to
the sideline. Weis claims that
today was proof that Cozart
is making strides to become
a more patient and efcient
passer than he was last season.
Im really happy that we
made the decision to play
[Cozart] last year, Weis said.
Tat was not the easiest de-
cision when you could have
tried to save him, but Im glad
because he looks like a difer-
ent player. You saw him stand
in the pocket [and] he showed
poise.
Kansas football teams have
struggled to fnd a stable
quarterback since former Jay-
hawk Todd Reesing, who led
the 2008 Kansas team to an
Orange Bowl victory, gradu-
ated afer his senior season in
2009. In fact, in the four sea-
sons since Reesings departure,
there have been seven difer-
ent quarterbacks starting for
the Jayhawks. Although it is
too early to tell, Cozarts per-
formance at the spring game
shows that he has the poten-
tial to possibly provide some
long-awaited steadiness at the
quarterback position.

Quarterback Michael Cummings runs past defensive lineman Ben Goodman on Saturday during the Kansas Spring Game.
S
ophomore quarterback Montell
Cozart shined in the Spring Game
on Saturday, taking home the
games ofensive MVP honor. Te fans
in attendance were reminded of what
Cozart is capable of when he faked the
defense and used his breakaway speed
to go 60 yards, bringing his team to the
three-yard line, and eventually, taking
the ball into the end zone.
Cozart ran for a pair of touchdowns
while helping the Blue squad come
back from behind in the second half.
He showed signs of promise during
the rally, but his throwing mechanics
remain a concern.
As a freshman, he connected on 37
percent of his throws. Despite the low
number in passes completed, coach
Charlie Weis said he was glad that
Cozart played last year.
Afer Jake Heaps spent 2012 on the
scout team while watching Dayne
Crist, the expectation was that spend-
ing one year learning Weis ofense
would beneft him in 2013. It went
the other way, however, as Weis enter-
tained the idea of switching quarter-
backs midway through the season, and
later made Cozart a part of the ofense.
While Heaps has the experience, it
simply comes down to who can help
Kansas become competitive and pick
up wins. Te Jayhawks went 4-20 in
Weis frst two years with the team, and
they want to dig themselves out of that
slump.
Cozarts experience as a freshman
helped him get a good grasp of college
football. With more repetitions in the
ofseason, Weis is seeing progress from
Cozart.
He looks like a diferent player, Weis
said. He showed poise. He was six for
10, but a couple of those incompletions
were throwaways, which, thats a good
thing, too.
Weis has coached some of the best
ofenses in the NFL and has tuned up
quarterbacks in the past. While there
is no defnitive starting quarterback
for the 2014 season, dont be surprised
if Cozart is the starting quarterback to
open up the 2014 season against South-
east Missouri State on Sept. 6.
With seven games under his
belt, Cozart has some mo-
mentum and an understand-
ing of college football. Letting
him take the snaps as a soph-
omore will give him more
experience, and perhaps
Kansas fans will witness a
lot of growth throughout the
season. In fact, with his abil-
ities, he gives Kansas the best
chance to be competitive.
Outside of gaining fa-
miliarity with Weis ofense,
Cozart has gotten to know his running
backs, fullbacks, tight ends and wide
receivers fairly well, which is rare for
most sophomores at the quarterback
position in college football.
Te Jayhawks will still be expected to
fnish either last or close to last in the
Big 12 Conference, to no ones surprise.
But by the time the 2014 season is over,
Cozart can help dig the Jayhawks away
from the bottom of the Big 12, and
have a hand in turning them into a
more competitive squad.
Entering the middle of the season
and taking the ofense as a freshman
is a tall order. His performance from
2013 shouldnt discourage fans. Cozart
s h o w e d
f l a s h e s
when he
played, and
with more
practice and
e x p e r i e n c e ,
fans can expect
him to turn fash-
es into positive
consistency.
Phase one of the
college football pro-
cess is over for Cozart.
Now, he needs to learn
from his mistakes and implement
what hes learned in the ofseason into
the 2014 season. He will be a more pol-
ished quarterback by the time the 2014
season is over.
Kansas is working its way to be a bet-
ter team. With Cozart under center,
fans should feel encouraged about the
future. With Weis now in his third year
with the team, the expectation should
be that he knows who his quarterback
is and Kansas should start adding more
victories to the win column.

COMMENTARY
Spring Game
surprises team
Te jawing began just
moments afer the rosters
were announced, as soon as
it became clear that the Blue
Team comprising Kansas
most likely starters was
assembled for the sole purpose
of beating the White Team on
the feld.
Surely the talent level on the
White Team couldnt manu-
facture plays. Afer all, they
were backups for a reason.
Kansas coach Charlie Weis
knew this. It was exactly what
he wanted. When the Blue
Team was taking its comfort-
able lead into halfime, he
would fip the score, making
his happy-go-lucky starters
fght their way back from
whatever hole they dug their
opponents into. Weis even had
his staf tell the media of his
secret rule before the game.
Unfortunately for Weis, the
rule stayed a secret. It turns
out that afer teasing your
backups for long enough,
they start to believe they can
win. And then they begin to
prove it.
While the Blue Team strug-
gled to get past midfeld in the
frst half they made it to
the White Teams 49-yard line
before moving backwards on
consecutive plays the White
Team went up 7-0.
Youre just trying to have
fun and stuf and then you
realize, OK, weve got to settle
down now, Blue Team defen-
sive lineman Keon Stowers
said. Everybody has a chip
on their shoulder. Te White
Team had a big chip today.
As much as Weis wanted
to stack the odds against the
starters in the second half, the
Blue Team took care of that for
him. In many ways, that was
more important.
In nine of their 12 games last
season, the Jayhawks trailed at
halfime. Weis doesnt need to
pull any tricks to get his team
to play with urgency, but that
doesnt mean he didnt need to
see how they would respond.
So when Stowers and the
other Kansas leaders marched
back into the locker room at
halfime there was no more
joking, no more teasing and
this was no longer about
which side had more talent.
Te leaders were just getting
on everybody in the locker
room, Stowers said. Te twos
looked better than the ones
out there.
By the time the Blue Team
took the feld for the third
quarter, everything about
them seemed diferent. Teir
pride was on the line and,
if they werent careful, their
starting roles could be, too.
And in the moments when
the top players needed to
make plays, they found a way
to get it done, whether it was
Montell Cozart or Tony Pier-
son or Stowers.
Tats what Weis wanted to
create by fipping the score.
But the Blue Team forced
the comeback on their own,
emerging with a 20-10 victory,
with the score every bit as im-
portant as how the Blue Team
achieved it.
Youre getting season-like
situations, Stowers said.
Tats a damn good rhythm
to get into.

FOOTBALL NOTEBOOK
PAGE 12 Jayhawks seek improvement before the fall season
Coming of their disappoint-
ing series sweep against Iowa
in their midweek two-game
set, the Jayhawks were set to
play the hottest team in the
Big 12. Kansas (22-15) wel-
comed the Horned Frogs of
Texas Christian University
(22-13) in a three-game series
at Hoglund Ballpark this past
weekend. Te Horned Frogs
came into the conference
matchup riding a fve-game
winning streak, having not
lost in the month of April.
Te Jayhawks dropped the
frst two games 5-2 and 3-1
in tightly contested pitching
duels. Tey salvaged the series
by avoiding the sweep and
winning game three. With the
5-1 victory in the nightcap of
the doubleheader on Saturday,
the Jayhawks moved to 6-6 in
conference play to keep their
season alive.
I thought we played well all
three games, said coach Ritch
Price. Luckily we played well
enough in the fnal game to
salvage the series; they came
in red hot, playing their best
baseball.
In game one on Friday
night the Jayhawks saw the
best pitcher in the country,
lef-handed pitcher Brandon
Finnegan, a frst-round draf
prospect who allowed a mere
35 base hits coming into game
one. Kansas scored two runs
of nine hits, eight of which
came of Finnegan in the 5-2
loss.
Senior pitcher Jordan Pich
has settled into his new role as
the Friday night starter. Afer
getting beat up in his frst start
against Kansas State, he tossed
the most innings of his Jay-
hawk career with six, allowing
four runs of 10 hits.
Its coming back to me,
Pich said. Its a diferent
mindset; I dont like giving up
hits and as a starter you are
going to give up hits.
Game two was another bat-
tle of the arms as the Horned
Frogs tossed out their crafy
right-handed pitcher Preston
Morrison. Kansas struggled
to get contact of his of-speed
stuf as they managed only
four hits, and their lone run
coming from a solo shot over
the lef feld wall by junior
outfelder Connor McKay in
the seventh.
Morrison is real good with
his sinker and slider, McKay
said. He kept us of balance
with his fastball. Hats of to
him for pitching a phenome-
nal game.
Junior right-handed pitch-
er Robert Kahana pitched a
complete game in a losing
efort for Kansas. He allowed
three runs of nine hits for
his second complete game of
the season, to avoid using the
bullpen in the frst of a dou-
bleheader on Saturday.
Afer scoring a combined
three runs in the frst two
games, the Jayhawks got
their ofense going in game
three. Junior outfelder Dako-
ta Smith, who didnt start in
game one of the doublehead-
er, had three runs batted in,
including a sliding triple in
the sixth to score two.
McKay added home runs
eight and nine on the year,
with two more solo shots over
the lef feld wall. He now
leads the conference in runs
batted in with 38.
Kansas senior right-handed
pitcher Frank Duncan tossed
a beauty in game three, as he
went 8.1 innings deep, allow-
ing one run of fve hits, strik-
ing out seven in his fourth win
on the year.
Kansas will look to keep its
season alive with a crucial
midweek home series against
non-conference opponent
Grand Canyon. Game one of
the two-game series will be
Tuesday, April 16, at 6 p.m.

The Blue Team wins the Spring Game
BLAIR SHEADE
sports@kansan.com
Te Kansas football Blue and
White Spring Game on Satur-
day was just another glorifed
scrimmage, coach Charlie
Weis said. Te Blue Team,
which consisted of starters on
ofense and defense, defeated
the White Team 20-10.
We still have questions, but
we got a lot more answers,
Weis said.
Te Blue team didnt look
like starters in the frst half
because the White team led at
halfime 7-0.
Tey came out and punched
us in the mouth, said Montell
Cozart, sophomore quarter-
back of the Blue Team.
Te White Team scored on a
Tre Parmalee 26-yard pass to
Andrew Turzilli. Te junior
wide receiver, Parmalee, was
split out wide and ran a re-
verse-pass to the senior wide
receiver Turzilli for the only
score for both teams in the
frst half.
Parmalee and Cozart went to
the same high school, Bishop
Miege, in Kansas City, Kan.
Afer the game, Weis went
into the locker room and told
the team that the Jayhawks
fnally have a Bishop Miege
quarterback that can throw.
Cozart and Parmalee are also
roommates this year.
I had to give him some stuf
about it, Cozart said about
Parmalees touchdown pass.
Te White defense held the
Blue ofense to 53 total yards,
and the White ofense ran for
76 yards on the Blue defense.
Te starters looked like the
back-ups, senior defensive
linemen Keon Stowers said.
Te Blue ofense crossed
midfeld once in the frst
half and compiled four frst
downs.
When I set up the team
personnel wise, you would
think that the Blue team
would have an advantage,
Weis said.
Te wide receivers on both
teams played well, including
Miami of Ohio transfer se-
nior Nick Harwell who led the
Blue team with four recep-
tions. Weis said that the wide
receiver position is deep and
right now junior Rodriguez
Coleman and senior Justin
McCay have a tight battle for
the X-position.
In the past two weeks I
dont think we have had fve
dropped balls, Weis said
about the Kansas wide receiv-
ers consistency in practice.
Senior quarterback Jake
Heaps and Cozart combined
2-6 for four yards in the frst
half. Heaps and Cozart are in
a potential quarterback battle
during the summer, but today
Cozart, who was the games
Ofensive MVP, looked apart
from Heaps.
Heaps, who in the 2013
Spring Game threw for 257
yards and four touchdowns,
struggled Saturday. He was
0-2 in the frst half and fn-
ished with 41 yards on three
completions.
In the second half Cozart
carried the Blue team with
a 60-yard run to the White
teams four yard line then two
plays later he ran it himself for
the touchdown.
Were all even keel, Cozart
said about the quarterback
battle between Heaps and
himself.
Te Blue defense held the
White ofense to 94 yards of
total ofense. Stowers, who
was the Defensive MVP, had
eight total tackles.
I think the frst-defense
picked it up tremendously in
the second half, Stowers said.
Te Spring Game showed
that the Jayhawks arent quite
ready, but everything can turn
into a positive.
We came out injury free to-
day, Weis said.
