Rodriguez, who represented Cuba, wore a
black costume with red and yellow ruffles on
the sleeves during his dance routine.
Gonzalez represented Puerto Rico and per-

preciation for her culture.
"This year the contestants worked harder
than any previous year," HSA President Jessica
Klahr said. "This is the first year that we've
had a cultural talent portion."

Police investigations have found no
indication of sexual battery in the cases
of three women who told police they
believe they were drugged at a Pi Kappa
Alpha Fraternity barbecue on Saturday.
UF became aware through the in-
vestigation that the fraternity had held
an unauthorized event. Because alcohol
was served at the event and served to
minors, the Dean of Students Office
placed the fraternity on interim suspen-
sion Tuesday until the inves-
P s tigation is completed, UF
Spokesman Steve Orlando
said. Pi Kappa Alpha will
not be able to host any functions until
the suspension is lifted, he added.
Gainesville Police Department in-
vestigators are waiting for toxicology
results to determine if the women were
drugged, said GPD spokesman Sgt.
The women, two 18-year-old UF stu-
dents and one 17-year-old high school
student, told police Sunday they thought
they might have been drugged because
they blacked out, waking up hours later
with no memory of what happened.
After GPD completes its investiga-
tion, UF's Student Judicial Affairs will
conduct its own, Orlando said.

Pipe organ repair
a complicated fix
By RACHEL STRANGE
Alligator Contributing Writer
The University Auditorium has been missing its main at-
traction since the pipe organ was struck by lightning at the
start of the semester. The inconvenience will cost about $30,000
The damage was discovered when a music student turned
the organ on and all the notes played at once. Organ students
called it the "Phantom of the Organ Loft."
Laura Ellis, music professor and university organist, said
the lightning fried the electric switching system that controls
the air that moves through individual pipes. The phenomenon
was caused by a short in the electrical current.
The organ is broken into five divisions, Ellis said, but each
division is connected with vertical wiring that
stretches to the top of the auditorium. After
On consulting with Martin Uman, who runs the
Campus lightning research lab at UP, each division will
be horizontally wired and more isolated to resist
But fixing the organ is more complicated than it seems,
Ellis said. Each pipe organ is unique, so the parts will be made
on demand and installed by experts from Solid State Organ
Systems based in Virginia. She expects the parts to arrive by
the end of October, and the technicians to finish installing them
after two to three weeks.
"It really is a treasure of an instrument," Ellis said.
John Duff, director of the UF School of Music, called the
incident unfortunate and estimated the cost of repairs in the
low- to mid- $30,000 range. The funds for the repairs came from
various sources in the music department.
Until repairs are made, students who want to practice
playing the organ must go to one of the three churches close
"The auditorium is a critical part of the historical part of
campus," Duff said. "The organ is one of the most important
aspects, and we want to see that history up and running."

Financial aid drops for students displaced by storm

Alligator Contributing Writer
For some UF students, fighting
for financial aid is a routine event.
For those affected by Hurricane
Katrina, it has become an ongoing
Duke Carter, a sophomore from
New Orleans, has only received a
fraction of the financial aid he re-
ceived last year.
"I'm dead broke," said Carter,
whose parents' income dropped
since Katrina ravaged the Gulf
Coast in August 2005.
UF has offered him loans to
pay for the rest of the expenses his
financial aid reward fell short on.
Over the summer he accumulated
a $3,200 debt from loans he used to
pay for tuition and housing, which
is why he is reluctant to take any

"Three weeks into the semester
and I still haven't gotten any aid,"
Guimont said. He was randomly
selected for a process called verifica-
tion, in which students must turn in
all their tax information, as well as
their parents', before any govern-
ment financial aid money is released
to them. Getting the necessary
forms, such as the W-2 tax form, is
difficult because of Katrina, he said.
All three students said they do
not understand the reason for the
change in their financial aid.
Associate director of financial aid
Richard Wilder said the decrease in
aid could be due to the students'
not being treated as disaster victims
Immediately following the hur-
ricane last year, some students'
financial aid was re-evaluated in or-
der to "help them in a time of crisis,"
Wilder said. The same was not done
this semester, however.
Meanwhile Carter, Wallace and
Guimont have to find other ways to
pay for their expenses.
Carter said his financial situation
is no better now than it was right
after the disaster.
UF helped out immediately fol-
lowing the hurricane, he said, but
now it seems like victims of Katrina
have been forgotten.
"After a year, the people (in New
Orleans), my family in particular,
are still struggling," Carter said.

House should launch full
investigation of Foley
T his Mark Foley scandal gets worse and worse.
Not only did the former congressman send sexually
explicit messages to current and former pages, he actu-
ally left the House chambers during a vote on appropriations
for the war in Iraq, no less to have cybersex with a high
school student. Then he zipped up, left his office and voted.
Gotta support the troops.
But that's not all. In a different flurry of instant messages,
Foley promised alcohol to a former page. "You're not old
enough to drink," he said, so "we may need to drink at my
house so we don't get busted." Right, congressman. So you
don't get busted.
As bad as Foley looks and he looks pretty bad the
real villains here are Republican leaders in the House of
Representatives. They knew about Foley and did nothing for
at least a year. Maybe even longer. In 2001, a Republican staffer
told pages to "watch out" for the Florida congressman, but the
leadership sat on its hands.
Even now, with Foleygate in every newspaper, they're trying
to cover it up.
The chief of staff for Rep. Tom Reynolds chairman of the
National Republican Congressional Committee offered ABC
News a deal. Don't publish those dirty instant messages, he
said, and well give you an exclusive story on Foley's resigna-
tion. ABC turned him down.
There's no question Republicans will pay a political price
for their actions and inactions in the Foley affair. The
Washington Times, one of the most conservative papers in
America, has already called for House Speaker Dennis Hastert
to resign. He should, but that's not enough. Who knows what
the rest of the House leadership knew or when they knew it.
So launch an investigation now, Republicans, or forfeit whatev-
er claim you had left to being the party of family values. Won't
somebody please think of the children!

If that sounds like a ridiculously impossible feat, it's

there is plenty of access to beer, whiskey, vodka or what-
ever else may tickle your fancy.
What UF and America at large seem to not under-
stand is that no number of threats, mandatory tests or any
other such policies will ever do much to combat alcohol
abuse. It just doesn't work.

Criticism of Gator Gala, athletes unfair
After reading "Gala Madness" yesterday,
I was appalled. Comparing budget cuts in
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences with
fundraising efforts by the University Athletic
Association is like comparing apples and or-
anges unless you account for the $34.4 mil-
lion dollars the UAA has contributed to UF
since 1990 to fund academic endeavors.
While the predicament CLAS faces is
a very unfortunate one, you can't point to
the success of an entirely separate entity
- the UAA and its privately operated Gator
Boosters to explain why CLAS is under-
funded. Besides, has the Alligator consid-
ered the positive impact a thriving athletic
program has on UF? It's no coincidence that
the Top 10 universities in national all-sports
rankings are all exceptional institutions like
Stanford University, Duke University and the
University of Texas.
Most importantly, I was disgusted that the
Alligator referred to "corn-fed" linebackers
"who can't even spell SAT." Sure, student
athletes at UF are not held to the same admis-
sion requirements as traditional students, but
they certainly aren't dummies. In fact, 186 UF
athletes earned a spot on the SEC Academic
Honor Roll last year. Believe it or not, many
athletes leave UF knowing how to spell SAT
- 91 percent of them, to be exact. That's the news again when the administration decides

Preacher responds to campus critics
I'd like to respond to some of the recent
writings with respect to my campus preach-
ing. In his Friday column, Todd Portnowitz
asked of me, "So why isn't he doing some-
thing productive?" Actually, I can't think of
many things that are more productive than
preaching about receiving forgiveness and
eternal life through faith in the Lord Jesus
Christ. As Jesus said, "For what is a man
profited, if he shall gain the whole world,
and lose his own soul?"
Jesus died for our sins so that our souls
could be saved by God's grace through be-
lieving in him. Hell is scary, but it's real. We
shouldn't hide that fact. In Daniel Morgan's
Tuesday letter, he claimed this is a "world-
view based on ancient superstitions, myth
and lore." In reality, this is the timeless truth
of God from his word, the Bible.

The Gators start t e t ir an na roun to ay at 8
a.m., as they look to one-up Oklahoma State and gain
their first tournament win of the young season.
Coach Buddy Alexander couldn't help but feel a sense
of deja vu yesterday on the greens of Williamsburg, Va.
After 36 holes of golf, the Gators are now tied for first
place with last year's NCAA Champion, Oklahoma State,
at the PING/Golfweek Preview Invitational.
The Gators shot their second straight score of 281 (1
over) to put them 2 over for the tournament as they pre-
pare for the final 18 holes that await them today.
"We had another good day of solid golf and put our-
selves in a goqd position," Alexander said. "It's a great
opportunity for us to get into the frying pan tomorrow
and see what we're made of."

SFCC leaves selfishness behind
* THE SAINTS HOOPS TEAM PRACTICED FOR
THE FIRST TIME THIS SEASON SUNDAY.
By KARL HYPPOLITE
Coming off a disappointing 14-16 record. last season,
the Santa Fe Community College basketball team is a
prime example of addition by subtraction.
Losing all but four players from last season may be a
good thing, since selfishness pervaded last year's Saints
squad, sophomore point guard Tracy Rankins said.
"Last year, there was a lot of selfishness and indi-
vidualism; everybody was trying to do everything by
themselves," he said. "And honestly, we didn't have no
leaders, no teamwork and no chemistry."
Those sentiments were echoed by the other three
returning players, including Gavin Home, the team's
leading returning scorer at 8.8 points per game last
season. The 6-foot-8 forward felt that last season's team
didn't lack talent and that there were just too many self-
"You have one bad egg, and it keeps carrying over
and carrying over," he said. "And that just effects the
whole team. That's just what happened, and the whole
team just self-destructed."
So far in preseason practices, Coach Chris Mowry is
pleased to see that his returning sophomores have taken
leadership roles on the team.
"They've done a good job as far as setting an exam-
ple," he said. "Some are more comfortable being vocal
leaders, and others are quiet kids that lead by example.
Whether it's been in the weight room or individual
workouts, I think they've set a good example of work-
Chemistry wasn't the only problem for Santa Fe last
Mowry felt the Saints "couldn't put the ball in the
basket," as the team shot just 42 percent.
To try and make things a bit easier this season,
Mowry wants to play a little "Billy Ball."
"Florida is a team that definitely wants to use their.
depth to press," he said. "They use some different press-
es but certainly they want to be able to press.
"Last year, there was a lot of selfishness
and individualism; everybody was trying to
do everything by themselves."
Santa Fe point guard
"Offensively, they're very good in transition. Their
big guys run as well as any big guys in the country. We
have some big guys that can run the floor well and some
guys who aren't as quick, but what we're looking for is
guys that will play hard all the time."
Mowry plans on using a 10-man rotation this season
to wear down opposing teams.
The team will be using full-court presses on defense
to force turnovers and will play up-tempo on offense.
The half-court offense will be similar to a Princeton-style
offense, with lots of screening, passing and cutting.
If all goes well, the Saints hope to march to the tune of
a 20-win season, Mowry said.

The last part of his statement may have been
the caveat, because according
