girl hikes to help in
the dark after crash
LOS ANGELES A 9-year-old
girl crawled out of a mangled SUV,
climbed out of a canyon and walked
about a mile in the middle of the
night to find help after surviving a
highway crash that killed her father
in Southern California, authorities
said.
The 2010 Ford Escape was
launched about 200 feet down an
embankment along a semi-rural
stretch of the Sierra Highway in
Acton about 1 a.m. Sunday, said
California Highway Patrol Officer
Cheyenne Quesada. The vehicle
overturned several times.
The girl managed to extricate
herself and walk through rugged
terrain to a nearby home, but no-
body answered the door, the CHP
said. Then she hiked up the steep
embankment and along the road to
a commuter rail station where she
flagged down a passing motorist at
about 2:30 a.m.
She walked quite a distance in
a very, very threatening environ-
ment. Its very black out there, very
dark, CHP Sgt. Tom Lackey told
KABC-TV. Its very steep and its
brushy and theres also coyotes in
the background.
Responding officers found a man
in his 30s had been killed, Quesada
said. His name was not released,
but officials said he was from Los
Angeles.
A helicopter transported the girl
to Childrens Hospital Los Angeles.
She was treated for minor injuries,
including bumps and bruises and a
cut on her face.
Television footage showed crews
extricating the severely damaged
black SUV from the canyon.
The CHP is investigating whether
alcohol played a role in the crash.

chicago to shut down
54 public schools
CHICAGO Mayor Rahm Emanuel
responded Saturday to widespread
criticism of his plan to close 54
Chicago public schools, saying he
wasnt interested in doing what
was politically easy and that the
pain of the closings doesnt com-
pare to the anguish of trapping
kids in failing schools.
If we dont make these
changes, we havent lived up to
our responsibility as adults to the
children of the city of Chicago,
Emanuel said in his frst public
statements since Thursdays an-
nouncement. And I did not run for
offce to shirk my responsibility.
Emanuel was out of town when
his schools chief, Barbara Byrd-
Bennett, announced the closings.
It is the largest number of Chicago
public schools to be shuttered in a
single year, and offcials say it will
affect some 30,000 students in
the nations third-largest school
district.
The long-awaited announce-
ment angered many parents,
teachers, lawmakers and com-
munity members, who say it dis-
proportionately affects minority
neighborhoods. Opponents also
argue the closings will endanger
children who may have to cross
gang boundaries to get to a new
school and will eliminate facili-
ties that are considered anchors
in some struggling communities.
Opponents protested outside
of several schools Friday, and
the Chicago Teachers Union and
other organizations are planning
a march Wednesday in downtown
Chicago.
Its not to say (Emanuel) is a
bad person, but Im saying I dont
agree with a lot of the decisions
hes making, said Yolanda Har-
ris, a parent who protested out-
side the South Side school Friday
with other parents. Hes making
big mistakes.

last Friday, KU became the frst


team in 12 years to win an NcAA
tournament game without hitting a
three-pointer.
More wins means more money.
For downtown Lawrence busi-
nesses, revenue and sales soar
during March. Te further the
Jayhawks advance in the NCAA
tournament, the more profts busi-
nesses see.
Simon Bates manages the Burg-
er Stand at 803 Massachusetts St.
Bates said the restaurant and bar
will be gearing up for the madness
Mass Street might bring, should
the Jayhawks advance to the Elite
Eight and Final Four.
We plan on ordering a large
number of plastic cups, putting in
a huge liquor order and will order
a bunch of kegs, Bates said. Ten
we cross our fngers and hope for
a win.
Should the worst happen, Bates
said at least Jayhawk fans can look
forward to food and drink spe-
cials.
If we dont win, we sell our ex-
cess food and beer that we ordered
for a victory as specials during the
next week, Bates said.
While the Burger Stand is stock-
ing up on kegs, other stores are
stocking up on Jayhawk apparel
and expecting to sell out quickly.
During March, we order a lot
more shirts than usual, said Chris
Boyajian, who works at Jocks
Nitch, 837 Massachusetts St. Well
change up our displays and put
certain items in the front of the
store so customers can see them
right away.
Boyajian said due to the rise in
customers during this time of year,
its important to stay well-stocked
on apparel, especially Final Four
shirts. Its standard to empty a
completely full stock not long afer
a Jayhawk win.
Jocks Nitch is prepared for the
rise in business, and the employees
know what is expected of them in
the coming weeks.
We staf extra people, especially
on game days. Te further the Jay-
hawks go, the more sales we see,
Boyajian said.
Like Jocks Nitch, the Burger
Stand will be stafng up for the
later rounds of the tournament,
should Kansas make it.
We are extra prepared this
time. Well be stafng up well,
Bates said. Well have at least 10
bartenders so people can be served
quicker and more efciently.
Bates said the 20,000-plus peo-
ple who made their way to Mass
Street last year was huge for busi-
ness. If the Jayhawks reach the Elite
Eight, Bates said he expects sales to
double in comparison to the other
months of the year.
Our alcohol sales will skyrock-
et, he said.
Although Boyajian might not
be happy about having to work
on game days, Bates welcomes the
madness that March brings to his
business.
Its our Christmas, Bates said.

Times Square was aglow late Sat-

Te University Wind Ensemble
has traveled to New York City to
play at Carnegie Hall, performing
the world premiere of Mahammed
Fairouzs fourth symphony Tuesday
night.
Jim Zakoura, an alumnus donor,
commissioned Fairouz to com-
pose his latest symphony, In the
Shadow of No Towers, inspired
by Art Spiegelmans book discuss-
ing the events of Sept. 11, 2001 and
its afermath. Tanks to Zakouras
donation, the Wind Ensembles trip
to give the world premiere for one
of the most frequently performed
composers of his generation is at
no cost to the students or profes-
sors.
Carnegie Hall is seen as the
ultimate in high-profle venues
through musical performance cir-
cles, said Dina Pannabecker Evans,
the assistant dean for student op-
portunity for the School of Music.
Teres a certain status that comes
with performing there. Being able
to add this experience to their re-
sumes will continue to round out
the exceptional experience these
students are getting at KU.
Fairouz not only wrote his fourth
symphony with the Universitys
Wind Ensembles abilities in mind,
but he has performed rehears-
als and recording sessions to give
feedback and advice during the re-
hearsal process.
Te interpretation that were
doing is the real one, Muriel Hague
said. Its so great to be able to have
the composer with us and to give us
his interpretation because thats the
most true form of the music.
Hague, a junior from Overland
Park studying music education,
plays the french horn in the en-
semble. Premiering a composition,
she said, has been a rewarding and
unique opportunity.
You get to learn the music the
frst time any performer has learned
the music, Hague said. Teres
nothing you can go to as a reference
-- there are no recordings, there are
no articles about how it should be
played. Its up to you. Were helping
create the music.
Te symphony itself blends clas-
sical music with modern composi-
tion techniques. In one movement,
One Country Under Two Flags,
the Ensemble splits into two bands
performing simultaneously.
Its a literal metaphor for the red
state versus blue state confict that
was present in the United States
afer 9/11, said Philip Kaul. Tats
pretty unconventional that there
are two separate bands playing at
the same time. Its not something
that youll see in wind band litera-
ture very ofen. But its something
that really helps to contribute to the
story. Its accessible and its clear to
the audience.
Kaul, a music education major
from DeSoto, is one of only fve
freshmen in the Ensemble. He
plays the tenor saxophone. Tough
New York City was a 24-hour bus
ride away, Kaul believes that the
Ensemble is well-prepared to per-
form, regardless of the venue.
Its just like if you were prepar-
ing for a sport and you do the same
thing at practice every single time,
Kaul said. Even though its the big
game of the season, youre not go-
ing to suddenly change what youre
doing. Its a bigger stage, but were
actively trying to make sure we
keep doing what weve been prac-
ticing to do.
Afer Paul Popiel, the conductor,
reviewed the composition this past
summer, the ensemble rehearsed
three days a week beginning Feb.
4. Tough the Wind Ensemble will
be one of only two college musi-
cal groups to perform at Carnegie
Hall this academic year, Hague too
is looking forward to a successful
performance.
Carnegie Hall is such a famous
place, and theres a little bit more
pressure involved with it, but at the
same time, its just another stage,
and weve all performed on lots of
stages, Hague said.
Tickets for the Ensembles per-
formances Tuesday, March 26 at 8
p.m. at the Isaac Stern Auditorium
in Carnegie Hall are $25. Te En-
semble will also give a free encore
performance in Lawrence at the
Lied Center on April 2.

To The
D
ear KU Student Senate
Election Coalitions,
I do not want to be
chased across campus. I refuse
to wear a button. I refuse to take
a flyer. If I frown, look away and
walk faster when I see you see
me, its a hint that I dont want to
talk to you. I hereby promise to
take one flyer from each coalition
and consider them carefully. I
promise to read the platforms and
Facebook pages of both groups.
But in return I expect to have my
personal space respected. I expect
to be able to walk to my class in
peace.
Fellow students, in the next
few weeks, the active tabling will
begin, and with it, your biggest
worry. You might think Sure, I
can avoid a few tablers, but you
are wrong. Its not a few, its an
army, and they are trained to not
be avoided.
For those who werent here
previous years for this nightmare,
heres a quick explanation. There
are very specific rules for senate
elections about how the coalitions
can campaign and when they can
use different methods. Right now
chalking and passive tablingthe
people handing out free stuff to
those who approach themare
allowed, but soon the real fun
begins. Soon coalitions can begin
active tabling.
Active tabling basically means
that the coalition members eat,
sleep and breathe their mission.
Every moment they arent in class
or work, they are out there hold-
ing flyers, flashing smiles and
trying to shove as many buttons
on you as they possibly can. Youd
think you could just walk around
them, but its not that simple.
They dont take no for an answer.
They chase you, sometimes
across campus, sometimes across
Lawrence (OK, maybe the second
one is a slight exaggeration) until
you take their flyer. The only way
to avoid taking a flyer is by wear-
ing their button, and even that
doesnt always save you.
It is because of this that I pro-
pose the following methods to
avoid (or reciprocate the annoy-
ance) of active tablers.
1) I cant hear you! Put your
head phones in, hum loudly
and walk fast. Avoid direct eye
contact and never let them sense
your fear. Remember, the tablers
are more scared of you than you
are of them (this might be a lie).
2) Blend in. See a tabler
approaching you? Dont panic,
just have a notebook ready. Tear
out pages from your notebook, or
use pieces of homework and start
holding them out to everyone
you walk by. Smile at these people
and pretend youre also a tabler
with a very important message
to get across. The real tablers will
think youre one of them and will
let you pass.
3) Wear all the buttons! If you
have one of the buttons, they let
you pass, right? Therefore, it only
makes sense to wear one from
each coalition. That way you
dont have to advertise your vote
to the entire campus, and suppos-
edly the tablers will let you pass
unscathed.
4) Take the flyer, then give
it back. Take the first flyer that
someone hands you and read
it. When the next tabler tries to
shove a flyer on you, hand them
their own coalitions flyer back.
Its like recycling, but the recycle
bins come to you.
5) Play dead. If all else fails
and a tabler does catch you, fake
a heart attack and fall to the
ground. With luck theyll call an
ambulance instead of handing
you a flyer. You cant be entirely
sure, though. They might just
see it as an audience who cant
escape.
Before I close, I would like to
pause here and be serious. As a
student it is your duty to make
an informed decision and vote,
and it is very important that you
do so. It is your money Senate
spends, and this is your chance
to make a difference. If you need
the above methods to stay sane
long enough to vote, so be it. But
my hope is this: the KU coali-
tions consider a balance between
active and hyper-active tabling,
and that they productively spread
their message rather than wasting
their, and our, time.
Wenner is a sophomore English and
History major from Topeka.

awenner@kansan.com
W
ithin the past month,
people far and wide
have been experienc-
ing changechange in seasons,
time and temperature. Likewise,
students who are graduating this
semester are likely experiencing
change in finding jobs or gradu-
ate schools and beginning to
make mental calculations of how
much theyll be able to mooch off
their parents for how long come
August.
In suit, one dating philosophy
thats as old as time is that part-
ners should not expect their sig-
nificant others to change, even as
months, seasons, and enrollment
at the University do. And a lot of
the time, its true; we shouldnt
expect our boyfriends, girlfriends
or whatever to change major
aspects of themselves like their
belief systems or their relation-
ships with others.
But the philosophy overlooks
the idea that not every element of
a person is essential to his being
and therefore shouldnt be a topic
of discussion if an issue arises.
A few weeks ago I had pizza
with someone with whom Im
somewhere between exes and
friends. After a lengthy discus-
sion about whether his new crush
was into him or not, somewhere
the topic shifted to my frustration
with his chronic unpunctuality
during the relationship we shared
three years prior. I expected a
sheepish apology accompanied by
a flirty grin typical of his fashion,
but was instead asked, Then
why didnt you just break up with
me?
I put on a faade of being
stumped but was internally
screaming that I thought he
would change. We may have
dated three years ago and may
have never been serious, but I
couldnt get it out of my head:
was I seriously at dinner with a
guy whod rather ditch a relation-
ship than be on time?
In retrospect, I have to won-
der if pop dating philosophy
would make an exception here. It
should.
People shouldnt expect their
partners to willingly change any
and everything at their signifi-
cant others whim. Elements of
peoples entire beings like music
tastes and hobbies should not be
expected to change for the sake
of a relationship because that
change would undermine indi-
viduality and identity.
However, things that every
couple should expect in relation-
ships like respect and reliability
are nonnegotiable, and can justi-
fiably be a topic of conversation
when those needs arent being
met. When the need is so basic
and generally expected to be met
in virtually every relationship,
people are right in asking their
partners to change in order to
keep the bond afloat. If the prob-
lem isnt an essential aspect of
the person being asked to change
anyway, like being on time, whats
the big deal?
Romantic relationships are a
sort of social contract in which
the people in them willingly enter
into a framework that demands
certain things of them like being
monogamous, for example. For
that reason, some bloggers like
Rich Santos of Marie Claire
Magazine advocate that when you
enter those relationships, you are
effectively agreeing that every-
thing about the other person is
acceptable.
But contracts either real or
implied can be and are broken,
and people can bring unforeseen
issues to the table, like punctu-
ality for my ex and me. People
always have the option to break
up over these issues, but for those
of us who would rather try to fix
the problem than immediately
abandon the relationship, a dis-
cussion about change is warrant-
ed. As long as we navigate it well
and give the defendant a chance
to give his input, change could be
expected to be made, and the dis-
cussion would do the relationship
good.
A week after I examined my
ex-boyfriends new crushs texts
over pepperoni and mushroom
pizza, I had an intense falling out
with someone with whom I had
become fairly close to over the
course of the past three months,
who was coincidentally friends
with that ex.
To my chagrin we got into
an argument that left me reel-
ing because it was all the proof
I needed that he objectified me
and wasnt about to take me seri-
ously issues I had with my ex
too. After my conversation with
my ex and my falling out with
his friend, it dawned on me that
sometimes change wont happen
regardless of how much you want
it to.
Maybe my ex will change
sometime for his new girl. Maybe
my exs friend and I will recon-
cile. But maybe not.
Regardless, though, sometimes
you can justify trying to change
another person, and we shouldnt
have to suffer at a crossroads in
relationships or friendships at the
hands of pop philosophy. And
when we dont, we may find our-
selves happier and our relation-
ships stronger.

This letter is in reference
to the article Men Need to
Confront Sexual Violence,
published Thursday March 14
by Katherine Gwynn. I thought
the article had a great point, but
based upon some readers reac-
tions, I believe some may have
missed the point. So I want to
help clarify a few things.
The article was suggesting
one way men can help com-
bat violence against women.
Nowhere does it call all men
rapists; nowhere does it disre-
gard violence against men. It is
addressing one route men can
take to help stop violence and
nothing more.
Why is the first thing we ask
a victim of sexual assault, Was
your dress too short? or Did
you drink too much? when we
never ask a victim of robbery,
Was your suit too nice? or
Did your watch look expen-
sive?
When a womans claim of sex-
ual assault is questioned because
she was drunk or dressed
skimpy, then we are operating
on the assumption that it is her
responsibility to not to get raped
it also assumes men obvi-
ously cannot stop themselves. As
a man, I am honestly insulted by
this mentality.
I believe that men are bet-
ter than that. If you do too,
then you should feel insulted
when people question a victims
clothing choice or drink choice
because it assumes men just
cant stop themselves from rap-
ing.
Suggesting that men should
help combat a culture that
devalues the experiences and
opinions of women is not a radi-
cal proposition it is an appeal
to equality. Real men help
people, and one way you can
help is to hold your male friends
to a higher standard. Grow up
and stop blaming women for
the actions of rapists. Become
involved and become a positive
force in the world not one
behind a computer.

You know its actually hell Week when
you dread leaving the safety of a lecture

many athletes bring millions of dol-
lars in revenue to their schools. So yeah,
tuition and board seems like a cheap
buyout.
Whats all this nonsense about more
free printing? Where do you think Ku
gets the money that allows us $8 of
printing?
maybe its just me but doesnt full
range wif make sense for the under-
ground? its silly to not get signal in such
a popular area.
inquiring minds want to know what
size shoe Jeff Withey wears.
Forget the drummers. i suggest the
baritones.
K-State isnt our big brother. They may
have been founded two years before Ku
but they were not an accredited univer-
sity until 1928.
Editors note: According to both uni-
versitys websites KU was accredited in
1913, and K-State in 1916.
oh man, all the things i could tell you
about that drummer that you dont want
to hear...
Good news - your student fees dont
buy sidewalk chalk for coalitions!
little brother joke? its not a joke.
i feel myself coming out of my winter
hibernation mode!!!
Who else wants to take a nap outside?
ultimate Frisbee on the Fraser lawn...
is it summer already??
i get that its sunny outside, but is
it really that sunny in the Budig lecture
hall? Take the sunglasses off...
Editors note: These last four FFAs
were before spring break.
Just saw a bro in a tree. are the
Greeks joining forces with the squirrels?!
can somebody let the writers at the
lJWorld know that its the university of
Kansas and not Kansas university.
The eSpn commentators were talking
about how cute our drummer was during
the championship game. anyone else
notice this?
can i put bracketology in my educa-
tion apps category?... Thats acceptable,
right?
Synchronized with the start of march
madness is the disappearance of my
concentration in class.

As if taking over the Super
Bowl, getting ready for a world
tour and finishing up a new album
isnt enough, Beyonc Knowles is
now also the new face of H&M.
The Swedish retailer confirmed
that the singer, songwriter, dancer,
actress and now model is the new
face and inspiration for the stores
2013 summer campaign.
According to Vogue News,
the upcoming campaign features
beachwear and swimwear that had
Beyoncs personal input on the
pieces seen in the campaign, as
a representative for the brand
confirmed. The collection was
inspired by emotions represented
by the elements fire, water, earth
and wind.
H&Ms summer campaign
starring Beyonc is an epic fan-
tasy, with glamour, drama and
also a sense of paradise, Donald
Schneider, H&Ms creative direc-
tor, told Vogue News. The cam-
paign is the essence of Beyonc,
and also the essence of H&M this
summer.
Inez van Lamsweerde and
Vinoodh Matadin shot advertise-
ments for the campaign earlier
this year in the Bahamas. The print
photos shot by the famous Dutch
fashion photography duo arent all
the campaign offers, though. H&M
also plans to release a television
commercial featuring Beyoncs
new song, Standing on the Sun.
H&M couldnt have chosen a
more perfect option. Though she
laid low after giving birth to daugh-
ter Blue Ivy, Queen B seems to be
everywhere in sight these days.
She sang at the January presiden-
tial inauguration, took the Super
Bowl by storm, is set to release a
new album, and oh yeah, is also a
new mother. Next shell begin her
42-city world tour in Serbia on
April 15, and told Shape magazine
in a recent interview that she and
husband Jay-Z plan to extend their
family afterward. 2013 seems to
be Beyoncs year, and with the
way things are going, 2014 will
most likely be hers as well.

Before spring break, we had a
vote in one of my classes on the best
basketball flm. It was no contest
Space Jam won by a landslide.
Do we really think this goofy
kids movie is the defning basket-
ball fick? Deep down, if were being
honest with ourselves, the answer is
no. But its such a childhood favorite
that it commands ferce loyalty from
our generation, so it feels wrong to
say otherwise.
And more than any other flm,
it got young kids interested and in-
volved in the game of basketball. It
inspired dreams in the sportiest to
the least athletic of children, wanting
to become a hero to the basketball
world (and the cartoon world) like
Michael Jordan.
Hell, it even represented at the
2012 San Diego Comic-Con. In the
nerd battle tournament, where the
most powerful superheros and su-
pervillains squared of in debate, the
character of Michael Jordan from
Space Jam took the title of cham-
pion, as decided by the audience. In
the geekiest gathering on Earth, leg-
endary basketball skills were deemed
greater than every superpower. Now
thats a legacy.
When I started playing basketball
in fourth grade, Space Jam was
the most experience Id had with
the sport. All of my friends were on
GABL teams so thats mainly why
I joined, but it was the Space Jam
theme song that played in my head
during games. I always related the
clash against the Monstars with the
struggle against the opposing team.
But my love for that movie never
translated into watching collegiate
and professional basketball, and
those still dont interest me today.
Besides cheering on the Jayhawks
in the big games, I dont care about
March Madness at all. However,
my heart always grows with fond-
ness this time of year for the flm
that serves as my foundation in the
sports world.
So, in case you havent watched it
recently, theres no better time than
now. Take a break from obsessing
about the tournament and bust out
the chronicle of the best matchup in
the history of basketball the Tune
Squad and MJ vs. the Monstars.
Youll be happy to know that 17
years afer its release, Space Jam is
still awesome, with many new rea-
sons to love it at this age. As the still
active, never updated ofcial site for
the movie says, its one of the most
high-tech, high-concept, high-fying
flms ever made.
Teres a drinking game with lots
of fun rules to go with it for one
thing, but on its own this movie is
still lovably silly in a way thats hard
to fnd anymore. Sure, it doesnt get
super exciting until the second half,
when the game starts, but the whole
soundtrack rocks and theres so much
nostalgia for the classic cartoon days
of yore to keep you elated until then.
And you might not have noticed as
a kid, but Lola Bunny is the sexiest
cartoon character ever.
Te performances are hilarious,
as Newman from Seinfeld (Wayne
Knight) runs around like a sweaty
madman, Danny DeVito zealously
voices bad guy Swackhammer and
Bill Murray shows up occasion-
ally to simply be a boss. Te slap-
stick oafshness of the real NBA 90s
stars who lose their talents remains
funny in part because of the stif act-
ing, and then of course theres Jor-
dan. Te majority of his ridiculous
performance soars to new comedic
heights when you think about him
acting on a green-screened stage,
having to imagine the cartoons in
front of him.
Once its game on, well, lets just
say real basketball only wishes it
could be that entertaining.

New reasons to love an old favorite
film Art
Artwork, stolen during WWii,
returned to correct families
PARIS Tom Selldorf was 6
years old when he saw his grandfa-
thers prized art collection for the
last time in 1930s Vienna, before it
fell into Nazi hands.
Now, hes 84, and in a ceremony
in Paris on Tuesday, the American
was fnally given back a piece of his
late grandfathers memory; France
has returned six of his stolen fam-
ily masterpieces.
Te restitution of the works
including paintings by Alessandro
Longhi and Sebastiano Ricci is
part of Frances ongoing efort to
return hundreds of looted art-
works that Jewish owners lost dur-
ing the war that still hang in the
Louvre and other museums. Te
move ends years of struggle for
Selldorf, whose claims were vali-
dated by the French government
last year afer years of researching
the fates of the works.
Im extremely grateful and very
moved, said Selldorf, who few
in from Boston for the event at
Frances Culture Ministry, where
the oil paintings were on tempo-
rary display. Tese paintings were
in this fog of war. Te restitution...
was not easy. It took a long time.
Te artworks were stolen or sold
under duress some seven decades
ago as Jewish industrialist and art
collector Richard Neumann
Selldorfs grandfather and his
family fed Nazi-occupied Europe.
Te collection whose original
size is unknown was his ticket
out, though he sold it for a fraction
of its value. Te route the artworks
took to show up in French muse-
ums is unclear, making their way
to places like the Museum of Mod-
ern Art of Saint-Etienne, the Agen
Fine Arts Museum, the Tours Fine
Art Museum, and the Louvre.
Afer losing most of his family
assets and a good part of his col-
lection to the Nazis in Austria in
1938, he came to Paris for several
years and then had to fee again,
this time with my grandmother at
one point on foot over the Pyre-
nees, to Spain, and then eventually
to Cuba, Selldorf said.
Te paintings stayed behind
all six destined for display in the
art gallery Adolf Hitler wanted to
build in his hometown of Linz,
Austria, according to a catalog for
the planned museum.
I only wish my grandfather was
here to be able to be a part of all
this, but I am sure he is watching
from somewhere upstairs, so thats
fne, Selldorf said.
At the wars end, artworks were
lef unclaimed, and many thou-
sands that were thought to have
been French-owned found their
ways into the countrys top mu-
seums. Many of the 100,000 pos-
sessions looted, stolen or appro-
priated between 1940 and 1944 in
France have been returned to Jew-
ish families, but some 2,000 art-
works remain in state institutions.

Coming into the game against
the No. 5 seeded Colorado
Buffaloes, the Kansas Jayhawks
werent suppose to be there.
They werent supposed to be in
the NCAA tournament. Many
assumed they would be NIT-
bound.
But the No. 12 seeded Jayhawks
didnt care what their critics said
about their place in the postsea-
son. They decided to roll over
the higher seeded Buffaloes, and
did so on Colorados home court
nonetheless.
Now, one game into the tour-
nament, the Jayhawks find them-
selves in a situation similar to last
season.
The Jayhawks are one win from
being among of the top 16 teams
in the country and tasting the
sweetness that such status brings.
Now, they stare the No. 4 seed-
ed South Carolina Gamecocks
square in the face.
The challenge of the NCAA
tournament is that teams play
opponents that they arent accus-
tomed to playing. Linking teams
to someone in the same confer-
ence can give a team the leg up
when trying to prepare.
Weve watched a little bit and
talked about them, senior Kansas
forward Carolyn Davis said. We
compared them to West Virginia
in our league by how tough they
are. Theyre not as big as West
Virginia, but theyre athletic,
strong and quick and its going to
be tough to beat them.
Much like last year, the Jayhawks
werent supposed to advance in
the tournament. They proved
the critics wrong as they almost
advanced to the Elite 8 on their
journey as a No.11 seed when
they beat No. 6 Nebraska and then
No. 3 Delaware to advance to the
Sweet Sixteen.
Because of the 67-52 vic-
tory over the Buffaloes, the
Gamecocks will be looking out
for the Jayhawks. Led by the SEC
Defensive Player of the Year and
All-SEC First Team selection
senior guard Ieasia Walker, the
Gamecocks bring aggression on
the defensive side.
The No. 4 seed, which was
ranked No. 17 nationally, is 26-10
on the season. Only four teams
have managed to crack 60 points
on its tough, rugged defense.
The four teams that scored over
the 60-point threshold were 4-0
against the Gamecocks.
Despite feeling unwanted in
the tournament, Kansas coach
Bonnie Henrickson still looks at
the No.12 seed Jayhawks as a team
under the gun, even if they are
playing a lower seed.
There is pressure. We want to
win, Henrickson said. Pressure
is a privilege. If our kids do not
feel pressure they probably do not
think they can win. You earn that
opportunity and it is a tremen-
dous challenge for a team to come
in here and play. Great players
want to play.
Kansas will take the court
against South Carolina tonight
at 7:30. Senior guard Angel
Goodrich will be at the forefront
of the team, and she doesnt care if
people think the Jayhawks belong
or not.
There were doubters last year
too, Goodrich said. We just
wanted to show what we could
do. If there are doubters now
and Im sure there arewe dont
look at that. We just want to go
out and play for fun and for each
other and show what we can do
as a team.

T
he Kansas Jayhawks are gung-
ho on getting to the Final Four
consistently, which is riveting, but I
want to take a step back from all the mad-
ness, and start thinking about next year.
Im starting to salivate when I think of the
future of this program.
Heres a little blind test for you. One re-
cruiting class, well call it A, is made up of
the number 25, 26, 31, 37, and 134-ranked
high school basketball players in the
country. Players ranked 24, 51 and 92 will
return to this team.
Another recruiting class, well call it B,
was made up of the number 8, 12, 13, and
28 ranked high school players in the coun-
try. Tat team returned players ranked 27,
34, and 54.
Tese classes are two of rivals.coms
highest ranked classes since it began its
service in 1998.
Its not too rash to say that any coach in
America would take either of these classes
in a heartbeat. Bill Self got both of them.
Class A is Kansass 2013 recruiting class.
Tis team will also sport veterans such as
Naadir Tarpe, Perry Ellis, Andrew White
III and Jamari Traylor.
Class B was Kansass 2005 recruiting
class, one of Self s best, with names like
Mario Chalmers, Brandon Rush and
Julian Wright, and that team returned
Sasha Kaun, Darnell Jackson and Russell
Robinson.
Class B won a National Championship.
I wouldnt be surprised if Class A follows
suit.
Conner Frankamp is a 6-foot point
guard from Wichita who is so Kirk
Hinrich-esque it sends shivers down my
back. He can also nail 3-pointers.
Shooting guard Wayne Selden is a titan
from Tilton, N.H., checking in at 6-feet-5
inches and 225 pounds. Te guy is a hu-
man highlight reel if you havent already
seen his flm.
Brannen Greene, a small forward from
Georgia, is my dark horse out of this group.
I think he is a little overlooked by most
Kansas fans, but the guy is 6-foot-7, and
can shoot and fnish at the basket.
Kansas will dearly miss its defensive
safety blanket down low, Jef Withey, when
he graduates; there is no denying he will
leave big shoes to fll, but 7-foot Joel Em-
bid, from Gainesville, Fla., certainly has the
dimensions to fll Witheys sneakers. Even
though he may not be quite as amazing
of a defender as Withey, his ofensive post
game already looks more polished coming
out of high school than Witheys does now,
and he has a smooth jumper.
Im confdent that if Kansas could only
play with freshmen next year, they would
still win the Big 12.
But Naadir Tarpe, a red-hot Perry Ellis
and a developing Jamari Traylor will be
back, and next years team looks just as
poised as ever to cut down the nets.
Bill Self s recruiting lapses a few years
ago were, in my eyes, just big overreactions
from a pretty spoiled fan base. And if he
really did struggle, those years now look
like an anomaly.
Te beauty of it is that, unlike Kentucky
and Jon Calipari, Kansas is mopping up
on the recruiting trail without the fear of
NCAA knocking at its door. Sanctions are
imminent in Lexington, while Bill Self is
safely nestled in a 10-year contract.
Kansas has won nine straight conference
championships, and this year seemed like
as good a year as any to dethrone them
for another Big 12 team. Te window
of this opportunity has been closing on
other teams, and if Kansas signs Andrew
Wiggins, that window could be closed for
good.

Kansas golf coach Jamie
Bermel has made it clear that
Kansas goes to every tournament
intending to win. But when the
team finished in 15th place on
the first day of this weekends
Desert Shootout in Goodyear,
Ariz., it didnt exactly help the
teams chances.
You cant win the tourna-
ment on the first
day, Bermel
said. But you
can certainly
dig yourself
in a huge hole,
which we did,
and pretty much
lose the tourna-
ment.
The Jayhawks
were 15th in a
field of 16 teams after the first
18 holes of the 54-hole tourna-
ment, but unlike their previous
two tournaments of the 2013
season, Kansas would move up
the leaderboard. Kansas was the
biggest mover on the second day
of the tournament behind Stan
Gautiers career best round of
67 (-4), putting the Jayhawks
in eleventh place. Kansas would
move up again after the final 18
on Saturday, but poor finishes
from Stan Gautier, Chris Gilbert,
and Alex Gutesha limited the
teams ascension.
We werent able to get it fin-
ished which is pretty disappoint-
ing, Bermel said. The finishing
holes really werent that hard.
On Saturday, Gautier bogeyed
his last three holes, Gilbert
bogeyed one of his last two holes,
and Gutesha bogeyed his last
hole. The team concluded the
tournament in a T-8th (+13) fin-
ish, 27 strokes behind the leader,
Brigham Young University.
Those add up in a hurry,
Bermel said. We probably
dropped four or five spots in
the last two
holes.
Despite the
poor finish,
Kansas saw
some of the
best individual
performances
of the season,
as four of the
teams golfers
finished in the
top 30. However, one of those
four, Bryce Brown, competed in
the tournament as an individual,
making Browns rounds ineli-
gible for the teams tournament
score. Bermel has played with
multiple lineups throughout the
season and is still searching for
the right fit.
We just need to find some
consistency at the four and five,
Bermel said. We need to start
settling in on a lineup and see if
we cant get some continuity and
consistency.
Though different faces have
occupied the fourth and fifth
spots in each tournament of the
spring season, Bermel has found
a consistent top three in Gautier,
Gilbert, and Gutesha, who have
solidified their spots on the
ever-changing lineup.
The top three guys are play-
ing pretty solid, Bermel said.
The three lead in different
ways. Its three different person-
alities, but all three are doing a
nice job.
Bermel said Gautier leads with
work ethic, Gilbert with results,
and Gutesha with a combination
of the two. The three have been
an essential part of a team des-
perate for consistency, and have
carried Kansas throughout 2013.
Still, shaving strokes elsewhere
is currently the teams priority.
Its the old clich: if you can
just find one more stroke every
round it would be huge, Bermel
said. Thats what we are look-
ing for now. How do we do
one thing better, and if everyone
could give us one stroke each
round it would be huge for the
team score.
The Jayhawks have another
two-week break before their
next tournament, the Irish
Creek Collegiate, on April 6-7
in Charlotte. The team has two
events left before the Big 12
Championships on April 22.

Kansas baseball battled frigid
weather alongside frigid run pro-
duction in this weekends three-
game series against Brigham
Young University.
The Jayhawks lost Saturdays
game 6-3 at Larry Miller Park
in Provo, Utah. The Jayhawks
left six men on base in the final
three innings while Wes Benjamin
pitched five innings giving up
eight hits and five runs, two of
which were earned.
We got down very early in
the game and with the conditions
it was a tough day to play and a
tough day to hit, Kansas coach
Ritch Price said. I compliment
their guys he pitched really good
in the elements. We found a way
to get behind, had opportunities
to score but we left a ton of run-
ners on base.
The Jayhawks strung together
three runs in the sixth and seventh
innings, but couldnt bring run-
ners home to tie the game late.
Kansas continues to fight injury
with senior first baseman Alex
DeLeon out this weekend with a
sore hamstring, junior outfielder
Tucker Tharp out with a pulled
hamstring in
last Wednesday
nights game,
and sopho-
more outfielder
Connor McKay
playing with a
tweaked ham-
string.
Were beat
up right now,
Price said. We
have to get some guys healthy and
get everybody back on the field to
get those impact players back on
the field offensively.
Senior shortstop Kevin Kuntz
returned to the lineup after sitting
two weeks with an ankle injury.
It feels good to be back and
get back in the flow, Kuntz said.
Being out for almost two weeks
its pretty tough coming right back
into games. My ankle is pretty
much 100 percent now. I feel fine
playing on it which is a good
sign.
Kuntz provides the Jayhawks an
anchor in the middle of the infield
defensively, as
he committed
only one error
while fielding
at a 98 percent
clip.
He makes
us a lot bet-
ter defensively
when he can
get on the field,
Price said. Its
just really good to see his return,
but of course now we need to get
the other guys healthy too.
The Kansas bullpen showed
its strength in Saturdays game
when junior right-handed pitcher
Jordan Piche entered the game
retiring eight straight batters with
two strikeouts.
Hes been good all year, Price
said. Hes been one of the best
in the country and was obvious-
ly thrilled with his performance
once again today.
Piche entered the game down
six runs with the bases loaded, a
situation that would cause most
relieving pitchers to cringe. Piche
keeps the game simple.
My goal was to just knock that
first guy out, take it inning by
inning and put up as many zeroes
as possible. Piche said.
Piche approach starts long
before his first pitch when he
watches hitters tendencies
throughout the game.
I like to watch the hitters and
see what they do on different
pitches to just see how they work,
Piche said. Then when I come in
I can work them from what Ive
seen before.
The Jayhawks fall to 14-8 for
the season after this weekends
series. They take on Missouri State
in Springfield, Mo., at 6:30 p.m. on
Tuesday.

Disappointing frst day fnish
leads to tournament loss
No. 15 seed moves to next round
PHILADELPHIA Florida
Gulf Coast went from shocking the
college basketball world to down-
right impressing it. And the Eagles
were smiling the whole time.
Playing loose and easy, little-
known FCGU beat San Diego State
81-71 on Sunday to become the
first No. 15 seed to reach the Sweet
16 of the NCAA tournament.
We dont take ourselves too
seriously, said Florida Gulf Coast
coach Andy Enfield, whose players
tossed him in the air and poured
water on him in raucous celebra-
tion before his postgame inter-
views. We try to have fun, get
serious when we have to.
Our goal was to make history
and we did it.
The next opponent for the
upstart state school will be the main
campus, third-seeded Florida, on
Friday night in the South Regional
semifinal in Dallas.
We tried to scrimmage them
early in the season in the pre-
season, Enfield said. Now we get
our shot,
Bernard Thompson had 23
points and Sherwood Brown
added 17 for FGCU, the 16-year-
old school in just its second season
being eligible for postseason play.
In its first-ever NCAA tourna-
ment game on Friday, the Atlantic
Sun champion busted brackets
everywhere with an upset win over
No. 2 Georgetown, a game the
Eagles took control of with a 21-2
run in the second half.
It went much the same way
against San Diego State.
This time the run was 17-0 and
Brown, who was saddled early in
the second half with foul trouble,
had eight of the first 10 points of
it. When it was over the Eagles
led 71-52 with 4:19 to play and
the only decisions left were how
the players and fans were going to
celebrate.
Brown stuck out his tongue after
every big basket, often in the direc-
tion of the hundreds of Eagles fans
jammed into one section.
Even when the game was tight,
he and his teammates looked they
were glad to be on the court. The
Eagles waved their arms and played
along with a lively crowd that came
to see an upset. There were big
smiles and high-fives.
In short, they showed a kind
of joy thats often missing from
high stakes, high drama games in
March.

In this presentation, social justice advocate Sandra
Fluke will discuss her notable experience in 2012
before a House panel, in which she passionately
testifed on the need to provide access to
contraception. She discusses how even though
she was raked over the coals by conservative
political commentators, rather than respond in
kind, she transformed the media focus into an
opportunity to advocate for important social
justice concerns for women. Her inspiring talk is
nothing short of a call to audience members to
make their own voices heard and create social
change and legislative action on issues that are
important to them.

Seniors lead Kansas to Sweet Sixteen
tRAVIS YoUNG/KANSAN
Kansas cheer team waves the fag before the match against the north Carolina Tar Heels last night at the sprint Center for the third round of the nCaa Tournament Cham-
pionship. Kansas defeated the no. 8-seed Tar Heels 70-58.
RYAN MccARthY
rmccarthy@kansan.com
Kansas City, Mo. History
tends to repeat itself.
Not all the time, but with the
Kansas coaching staff its a good
bet.
More than anything, Kansas
coach Bill Self relies on his four
seniors, and thats exactly what the
team needed at the Sprint Center
on Sunday.
Still it took a bad
first half of basket-
ball and a halftime
pep talk for Self to
get his players in
the right direction.
I dont think
we demonstrated
experience much
during the first
half, Self said.
Second half, seemed like we com-
municated more, more energy. We
came in the game ready to play.
One of the players that came to
play was senior center Jeff Withey,
who was a dominating force
throughout the game Sunday with
16 points, 16 rebounds and five
blocks as Kansas punished North
Carolina 70-58 for the third time
in five years.
After struggling to find his place
early the first half, Withey was right
at home in the Sprint Center block-
ing shots and slamming buckets.
But Withey said his six turn-
overs in the first half were his one
flaw in the game.
A lot of that was just throwing it
right to the defender, Withey said.
But second half, we kind of got
a better feel for
them. We knew
what they were
going to do.
More than
anything right
now Withey
feels comfort-
able in his
element. Hes
seizing the
moment just
like so many of his teammates.
Senior forward Kevin Young did
not have his best night, but his 10
points and nine rebounds helped
propel Kansas to victory.
Young said his and Witheys
teamwork contributed more to the
win than anything.
Most of the time we know where
each other are on the court and we
know what we do, Young said.
Our adjustments show between
me and Jeff because he gets easy
buckets when I touch the ball. I
love passing it to him. We always
argue who gets more assists.
The other star of the night was
senior forward Travis Releford,
who put on a show for a home-
town crowd. His 22 points made
Sundays game his third 20-plus
point game at the Sprint Center
this season.
Hes so steady and hes a rock,
Self said. The other thing I think
thats nice about Travis, he doesnt
get tired. He can play all day. I
thought that was a big key for us
late.
Sophomore guard Naadir
Tharpe stepped up and hit some
pivotal 3-pointers in the second
half to propel the Jayhawks to their
30th Sweet Sixteen in program his-
tory and sixth under Bill Self.
What helped more than any-
thing was Youngs passing ability to
find Tharpe during open looks.
I just wanted to find shots,
Tharpe said. When they started to
draw to me, I would get it to Kevin
and Kevin made the extra pass. We
really started playing together.
Ben McLemore struggled
through Sundays game and spent
most of the second half on the
bench because he wasnt click-
ing with the flow of the offense.
McLemore finished the game
0-for-9 with two points, both free
throws.
My confidence is there, but I
just got to get back in the gym
and shoot more and get ready,
McLemore said.
Despite their highly touted play-
er not living up to expectations, the
Jayhawks did not need him.
They have four seniors leading
this team, and it starts with the
lethal combination that Self and
Withey will bring to the table in
Dallas.
The team will not have the
advantage of playing so close to
home, but Self and the team used
it this week to move onto the next
level in the bracket.
As Self said, The big advantage
we had was that we were playing in
Kansas City.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. There
were no rousing halftime speeches.
No venom spewed from his mouth,
nor did he express disbelief at his
teams miserable 25 percent shoot-
ing in the first half.
Instead, Bill Self told his team to
talk among themselves at halftime
and walked out of the locker room.
When he was gone, the one
senior from Kansas City, Travis
Releford, took over. He told the
team if they didnt play better, they
had 20 minutes left in their season.
And Releford had no intention of
losing his final collegiate game in his
hometown, which currently stood at
30-21 in favor of North Carolina.
Definitely was personal for me,
Releford said. We can go out there
and leave it all out on the court or
we can let them roll over us like they
did the first half.
Kansas didnt roll over. Releford
and the three other Jayhawk seniors
made sure their second half per-
formance bought them another
40 minutes, dispatching North
Carolina 70-58 to advance to the
Sweet Sixteen in Dallas, where
the Jayhawks will face No. 4-seed
Michigan.
First, senior center Jeff Withey
blocked a layup 20 seconds into the
half. He scored on the ensuing offen-
sive possession after Kansas grabbed
two offensive rebounds. The next
trip down the court, Releford
made the teams first 3-pointer of
the NCAA Tournament, whittling
North Carolinas lead to four points.
Withey followed with a one-handed
dunk from the middle of the lane
after his defender moved out of
the way. Later, senior guard Elijah
Johnson buried a 3-pointer, tying the
game at 35. Except, really it wasnt.
Not even five minutes had elapsed
in the half and already Kansas had
deflated the Tar Heels.
You could tell with our fans giv-
ing us that confidence and we keep
on feeding off of it, you can tell that
they started to kind of fall back on
their heels more, sophomore guard
Naadir Tharpe said.
Kansas spent the first 11 minutes
of the second half on an extended
33-10 run behind 22 points from
Withey and Releford, so its hard to
pick out the best moment during
that stretch. But one of the prime
candidates came midway through
the first half after Tharpe procured
a steal.
He drove into the lane, but
instead of challenging his defender,
he slipped a behind-the-back pass
to Releford who dropped it in for a
47-38 lead and drew the foul. As the
horn sounded to signal a television
timeout, Johnson ran over to a sec-
tion of Kansas fans near the corner
of the floor, flailed his arm and
screamed Lets go!
The Jayhawks are going. Going
to Dallas and going to the Sweet 16.
Really, it will be the Jayhawks first
neutral-site game of the postsea-
son. After spending both the Big 12
Tournament and the first weekend
of the NCAA Tournament at the
Sprint Center, the Kansas City arena
started to feel like an extension of
Allen Fieldhouse.
We got the crowd into it so it was
like a home game for us, Releford
said. It sounded just like Allen
Fieldhouse almost, minus the stu-
dent section. It was loud.
It was really the first time the
Kansas faithful had a strong reason
to cheer all weekend.
Kansas shot 5-8 from 3-point
range in the second half after not
making a single 3-pointer in the
first three halves of the tournament.
Tharpe went 3-4 from 3-point range
and four Jayhawks scored in double
figures led by Relefords 22 points on
9-13 shooting.
When Naadir came in we were
a better team, Self said. It allowed
Elijah to bump off and guard. They
play two point guards a lot. We were
able to play them with two point
guards as opposed to a 3-man and
a point.
After combining to commit
seven first-half turnovers, center Jeff
Withey and forward Kevin Young
committed just four in the second
half, allowing them to be more pro-
ductive in the low post on offense.
The Tar Heels, however, strug-
gled to score throughout the game.
Their only big man, James Michael
McAdoo, kept having his shots
swatted by Withey, who finished
with 16 points, 16 rebounds and
five blocks.
Outside shooting didnt go much
better, either, as Kansas kept Carolina
to 3-10 shooting from beyond the
arc in the second half. Withey even
rejected a Reggie Bullock 3-point
attempt. His presence helped free
the entire Kansas defense.
Its a lot easier because we can
pressure up because now we know
if we get beat weve got Jeff behind
us to block the shot or alternate the
shot, Releford said. With North
Carolina, if theyre not making
shots, we saw this throughout the
season, its tough for them to win
because they play small. If we just
rebound and control the posses-
sion on offense then we got a great
chance to win.

S
omething felt strangely
right about Jeff Witheys
performance against North
Carolina.
This is the Withey that prom-
ised Kansas coach Bill Self that
he wouldnt be a failure upon
arriving in Lawrence.
This is the comfortable
Withey, the natural Withey, and
perhaps the easiest to spot, the
hungry Withey.
This Withey is an offensive
monster thats every bit as grace-
ful as his defensive counterpart.
And the Tar Heels were the
latest to discover him as that
monster who produced 16
points with an equal amount of
rebounds to go with six blocks,
while UNC hit just 22 of its 73
(30.1 percent).
But dont be mistaken: This is
not merely a phenomenal perfor-
mance from Withey. This is the
new normal.
Withey does a great job
protecting the rim, said North
Carolinas Marcus Paige. Our
shooters never had a chance to
get into rhythm.
Maybe it is the hunger.
That pain to achieve what
the Jayhawks missed out on a
year ago. But when Withey puts
everything together this Kansas
team clicks it just took him a
while to work up an appetite for
ram.
The first half we made some
bonehead plays, Withey said.
Especially me. I had six turn-
overs myself.
Fortunately, Witheys play
thereafter would make up for it.
When Kansas was just start-
ing to mount its comeback
from a 10-point deficit, it was
Witheys four defensive rebounds
that saved possessions for the
Jayhawks. And when Kansas took
its first lead midway through the
first, it was Withey scoring the
layup.
We kind of got a better feel
for them, Withey said. We
knew they were trying to gamble
and trying to steal the ball every
time. So we just played to that.
That feeling was different for
Kansas fans. Once Withey had
the ball, there was more of a
sense of safety.
In Kansas five games since
the start of the Big 12 tourna-
ment, Withey has scored 14.6
points per game shooting 66
percent while maintaining his
season average of 8.3 rebounds.
Not to mention his 17 blocks in
that span of time.
Sometimes that makes it hard
to remember that Withey was
once a seven-foot scrub that
couldnt find playing time. That
Withey was a gawky freshman
who was afraid of the ball, the
kid who was repeatedly ques-
tioned about how much he actu-
ally liked playing this sport.
You didnt think Withey could
be described as a safety net then,
or even two years ago.
Which goes back to that feel-
ing. The one that felt strangely
right when Withey and the
Jayhawks started playing at their
best. When Withey attacked the
rim with as much ferocity as
when he defends it.
It feels like a promise fulfilled.
