Rape victim remembers real-life nightmare

College Basketball

Coach K and Duke crew tougt r
but can they hold off the pack

By Rita Cosby
The Gamecock
U. of South Carolina
"Your worst fears can come true,"
said a 26-year-old U. of South Carolina
(USC) student who was anally raped
in her apartment last summer.
Weeks prior to the rape, hang-up
phone calls occurred and her apart-
ment was robbed of some old clothes.
Then on the first day of summer
school, a 15-minute nightmare began.
When her roommate left home at 10
p.m., he left the front door open as he
expected to return shortly and the
area was considered "generally safe."
When she heard footsteps outside
her bedroom door, her first reaction
was to pick up the phone and loudly
say, "Oh, great, so you're coming right
Then she checked the entire apart-
ment, and since it looked empty, she

closed and locked the front door.
"What I evidently had done was lock
my assailant inside."
She began dozing off when her bed-
room door swung open and a dark,
hunching silhouette appeared at the
foot of her bed.
"It's so weird, you always think
what are you going to do if you find
someone walking into your house.
Scream probably?
"I didn't. It wasn't scream reaction
at all. I knew. . . here it is, I've got to
deal with it," she said.
She assumed it was a robber and
said, "Just get out of here right now."
He reacted calmly and said, "Okay,
just do what I say. Lay down on your
She attempted to act normal as he
asked her for her money, which she
quickly gave him.
"'Just take the money and go' was

my thinking."
She was then ordered to remain on
her stomach and never to look at him.
She saw movement behind her: either
him taking his shirt off or tying a piece
of cloth around his face.
"That was the first moment I had
any aggressive feelings. I really knew
then he was going to rape me. That's
what he's truly here for," she said.
She struggled and he slapped her
and pushed her head down to the bed.
"I don't want to hurt you. Just do what
I say," he said.
"I just pulled deep inside myself and
tried to maintain my sanity."
To facilitate lubrication, the
assailant demanded oral sex from her.
He then penetrated her anally.
"The whole time he never seemed
sexually excited. And as soon as I re-
laxed and he saw no resistance, he

When the rapist left her bedroom,
she darted to her neighbors where she
contacted the authorities.
After dealing with police, whom she
described as "mediocre," the victim
was taken to the hospital for gonor-
rhea and syphilis tests. Her body was
pumped with antibiotic, and both anal
and cervical cultures were taken.
"I was crying and very emotional for
several weeks. And everyone close to
me was sick or having nightmares.
This guy raped me for 15 minutes, and
suddenly 20 people's lives are des-
troyed for a long time."
The key to recovery, she believes, is
to separate yourself from the crime.
"When somebody is invading your
body and stripping you of every sense
of security, you've got to shrink down
into yourself and say 'you can't get in
here. You can rape me, but you can't
get into the center of me.'"

NCAA violations: Same problems, different school

'Sue the school'
becomes trend
at many colleges
By Felicia Hwang
The Dartmouth
Dartmouth College, NH
College-directed lawsuits have
become a trend today among col-
lege students and faculty mem-
bers who feel their rights have
been violated. Cases like the Re-
view suit against the college are
not exclusive to Dartmouth.
In March 1987, a racial con-
frontation at Columbia U., N.Y.,
resulted in the suspension of
Drew Krauss, a white student. He
later sued the university, saying
he was discriminated against be-
cause he was white - he was the
only student to receive disciplin-
ary action.
In January 1988, a federal
court jury found in favor of
Krauss. Although U.S. District
Court Judge Vincent Broderick
disagreed with the verdict, here-
fused to overturn thedecision due
to sufficient evidence. The final
settlement was made privately
between the two parties.
Harvard U., Mass., is still wait-
ing for a decision on suits filed in
1981 and 1983 by former Busi-
ness School Associate Professor
Barbara Bund Jackson, who is
suing the university for tenure
and $847,000 in back wages,
claiming she was not evaluated
based on her academic record
when she was considered for te-
James Lee at Duke U., N.H.,
used the tools he learned to sue
his school. Lee, a law student,
filed two suits against a campus
policeman, his supervisor, the
university and its president,
claiming his fourth and fifth
amendment rights had been
violated because the officer had
stopped him. After months of leg-
al battle, the case was settled out
of court in a private agreement.

Students 'bullish' on political market
Volatile stock prices track presidential candidates' popularity

By Deborah Gluba
and Mary Brill
The Daily Iowan
U. of Iowa
U. of Iowa (UI) students and faculty
who want to turn a profit on the Novem-
ber presidential election are investing
in the UI Presidential Stock Market
For an initial investment of $35,
stockholders received 40 shares of the
fictitious stock. They were issued 10
shares each of Bush, Dukakis and Jack-
son (PSM opened in June). They also
received 10 shares for third-party
candidates and potential newcomers.
"Every cent will be returned to the
participants, but some will lose and
others will gain," said George
Neumann, UI economics chair and mar-
ket co-director.
The market was designed to imitate
the New York Stock Exchange, with two
exceptions: Investors may not sell
shares they don't yet own, and they
can't purchase shares when they don't
have enough cash.
The stock exchange provides a fun
and realistic approach to election fore-
casting, according to UI economics
Associate Professor Forrest Nelson.
Nelson, a project co-founder, said the
PSM is the first such presidential elec-

There has been a lot of activity with
the Jackson stock, Nelson said. "It's a
low-price stock and it's an easy stock to
play with. It makes Jackson a ripe
candidate for speculation, and recent
behavior is typical of a speculative
Nelson said the number of stock hol-
ders tripled when students returned to
school, putting Bush ahead of Dukakis,
who had been leading until then.
He said payoffs will be made Nov. 9
when traders cash in their stock at a
rate of $2.50 per share multiplied by the
popular vote percentage each candidate
receives nationwide. For example, if
Dukakis captures 50 percent of the
popular vote, his stock will pay $1.25.
The stock market, Nelson explained,
is an educational tool. A one-credit
course is being offered through the eco-
nomics department this fall to study the
market. Only a handful of students
were expected to show interest but 60
showed up instead, he said.
UI political science professor Jack
Wright, a member of the stock market's
board of directors, said the stock market
was a better indicator of voter prefer-
ence than public opinion polls.
"The market should give a better in-
dication of who is going to win because it
is more than just a preference poll," he

tion forecaster and may lend insight to
how current events affect voters.
"We are capturing attitudes about not
who a trader wants to win, but rather
who he thinks will win," he said.
The market determines stock prices.
When trading began, a share of Duka-
kis stock sold for $1.29 while Bush stock
went for $1.24 a share.
Nelson said stock prices seem to re-
flect current events and the market
fluctuates according to a candidate's
popularity. He said the market is super-
ior to polls because it runs all the time
and provides instantaneous results.

Sherrill has a point
about NCAA rules
By Hal L. Hammons
The Battalion
Texas A&M U.
Watching Jackie Sherrill sweat
under the heat of television lights and
the all-seeing eyes of millions, I felt a
strange sympathy for him.
Not for his wrongdoings, of course. He
has violated NCAA codes of ethics and
conduct - by neglect if not by actual
commission. And by violating these
rules, he should be punished.
But I found myself mentally assent-
ing to many of Sherrill's explanations.
Yes, he was guilty, but some of the rules
are asinine.
Sherrill admitted to not reporting an
illegal contact with an unnamed high
school recruit who was supposedly con-
sidering attending Texas A&M. What
the illegal contact consisted of, Sherrill
said, was accidentally bumping into
him while visiting the recruit's high
Agreed, that is Sherrill's statement of
the facts. But I think it's understand-
able, if not forgivable, that Sherrill
could consider that incident unworthy
of reporting.
And, of course, there were the usual
allegations of illicit contact between
zealous fans and hot prospects.
If you haven't figured it out yet, this
matter about alumni is just about out of
hand. The story is one with which any
fan - of Southwest Conference football,
particularly - is all too aware.
Some big wheel who was unable to
extend his support to good ol'State U. in
a participatory way decides he'll make
up for it by attracting Joe Jock from City
High to do it for him.
We saw it at Southern Methodist. We
saw it at Clemson. We saw it at Florida.
And no doubt we will see it again.
If Mobley is serious about putting the
emphasis on playing the game on moral
grounds, the request will have to be
answered in some measure.
In the meantime, however, there's no-
thing wrong with researching the mat-
ter further to find some way to provide
some flexibility to the system while
maintaining its integrity.

From riches to rags?... After a five-hour
meeting with the NCAA Infractions Committee, U.
of Kansas (KU) Athletic Director Bob Frederick
had hoped KU's basketball program would
emerge with minimal damage. Aside from Freder-
ick and three other university officials, the meeting
saw the reappearance of some familiar faces from
KU's national championship team of a year ago.
Former head coach Larry Brown and assistants
Alvin Gentry and Ed Manning, all with the National
Basketball Association's San Antonio Spurs came
to the meeting on their own accord."I'm glad I got
the opportunity to come," Brown said. "Because all
of the sudden I'm not with the program and it's kind
of a difficult feeling because I don't want to leave
anybody in a lerch." Gentry, who briefly left the

meeting, said, "The heat lamp is turned on.' After
the meeting, Gentry said that former Memphis
State U. guard Vincent Askew was involved in "90
percent" of the allegations. Askew transferred to
KU during the summer of 1986, but returned to
Memphis St. after the summer semester. Some of
the allegations are rumored to involve boosters not
staffed by the university, including former KU play-
er Mike Marshall, Gentry said. Marshall played for
the Jayhawks during the 1983-84 season and then
transferred to McNeese St. U., La. Gentry said, "I
think it was a situation where people (and) where
certain things, might have occurred where they
thought they were helping the university." Ar-

Wildcats target of NCAA probe

Jorge said each gang has its own form
of initiation, such as fighting or steal-
ing, to prove future members will be an
asset to the gang. But in the Latin
Kings, new members had to "walk the
This meant Crazy had to walk slowly
between two lines of gang members
while they beat him, each kicking and
punching him several times.
"No matter what, you got to make it
through the line standing up to prove
you're not going to give up in a real
fight," Jorge said.

The reason guys join gangs in spite of
the violence of gang life is mostly be-
cause of peer pressure and protection,
Jorge said.
"You want to belong to something
... It's also for protection," he said.
Jorge explained that he didn't have to
go through initiation because he was
called in to be main back-up when fights
took place.
"Whenever they needed help to fight,
I was there to kick ass," he said. "I was
terror back home - main back-up is
serious fighting. I never killed anyone
knowingly, though, and didn't feel bad
about beating up guys. It was some-
thing we all did."
Jorge explained there is a lot of press-
ure to fight in a gang. "It's either kill the

enemy or be killed," he said. And if
members don't uphold their gang, their
own members will go after them and
hurt them worse.
Fights, which usually take place in
open fields or abandoned train yards
and parks, are mostly over territory or
to gain more of it. The gangs often fight
until one side is outnumbered or until
the police come.
"I used to love fighting," Jorge said. "I
just wanted to hurt somebody. When
you have the aggression you do crazy
things. You don't care, there's just a cer-
tain kind of aggressive urge."
Jorge took school seriously and got
good grades. He wanted to further his
education and get out of the Illinois area
by going to UI, he said.

The NCAA informed the U. of Ken-
tucky (UK) July 22 that approximately
10 additional allegations against the
basketball program are being prepared,
but another allegation of possible
wrongdoing concerning UK player Eric
Manuel's ACT test may be pending,
according to university lawyers.
Concern about Manuel's test scores
stems from the marked rise in test aver-
ages between the guard's two lower
scores on the SAT test, taken in his
home state of Georgia, and his higher
score on the ACT test, which fulfilled
Proposition 48 requirements, taken in
Sean Sutton, son of UK Coach Eddie
Sutton, also took the test with Manuel
in Lexington, but denies any cheating

took place. Sutton had previously taken
the test and passed, but said he took it
again to improve his scores.
"The reason it was being investigated
by the NCAA apparently was that they
intended to include it among the allega-
uons," UK President David Roselle said.
UK began its investigation of the
men's basketball program to coincide
with an NCAA probe, begun after a Los
Angeles newspaper reported that a
package sent by UK assistant coach
Dwane Casey to the father of Wildcat
recruit Chris Mills popped open in
transit, revealing $1,000. Both Casey
and Mills' family denied the package
contained any money.
"(The investigation) has hurt our
recruiting .. .," Coach Sutton said.
"Additionally, and just as importantly,
the pride of our entire state has been
put to an unjust test."
