Clubs face new alcohol rules

Any ASU club hoping to host a kegger this year has a new policy standing in the way.

Several University offices revised the Student Organization Resource Center policies for student groups hosting events with alcohol and presented it to clubs Sept. 19.

The new policy formalizes and expands many existing alcohol guidelines. New additions, however, are that events can no longer be held where attendees bring their own alcohol, and alcohol must be served by a third-party vendor.

Libertarians sue to get on Nov. ballot

A Superior Court judge is expected to decide today whether to grant an inspection of write-in ballots from last month's primary election after a lawsuit was filed last week alleging the votes were not correctly counted.

There's nails in that there grass

The grass is always green on the north side of the ASU Fulton Center.

That's where an artificial plot of grass sits between the building and the parking structure, next to the pay booth.

Surrounded by real trees and plants, this patch of artificial grass is the only of its kind in the area.

Sun Devils sputter again

Oregon senior J.D. Nelson has no trouble brushing off a tackle by ASU freshman linebacker Mike Nixon during Saturday’s loss to the Ducks.
The ASU football team failed to show up for the second straight week Saturday when it was blown out 48-13 by Oregon at Sun Devil Stadium.

The Sun Devils were badly beaten on both sides of the ball by the Ducks, who racked up 574 yards of total offense while holding ASU to just 175 yards of offense.

ASU coach Dirk Koetter said the loss is the second worse he has ever been involved in.

"We were horrible," Koetter said. "It was horrendous. It was bad, embarrassing. Pick your word."

Oregon was led by junior quarterback Dennis Dixon, who passed 19-30 for 215 yards and three touchdowns. He also ran the ball nine times for 35 yards.

Sophomore Jaison Williams received 10 passes from Dixon as he shredded ASU's secondary for three quarters of play. Williams would finish the game with 10 receptions for 137 receiving yards and two touchdowns.

Volleyball roughed up on road

Road matches against conference foes ranked in the top 10 are never easy, and the ASU volleyball team found that out this weekend.

The Sun Devils (9-5, 1-2) lost 3-1 to No. 7 California (14-1, 3-1) Friday and were swept 3-0 by No. 6 Stanford (12-2, 3-1) Saturday.

On the cover: The other candidate

Christopher Atwood / THE STATE PRESS
On Nov. 7, millions of Arizonans will head to the polls to choose between current Democratic Gov. Janet Napolitano and Republican challenger Len Munsil. Oh yeah, that Libertarian guy's on the ballot, too. And he just so happens to be planning the largest upset in Arizona's political history.

If you feel like talking to Gov. Janet Napolitano, you can call up her campaign offices, talk to Noah, her campaign manager, get directed to Janine, her communications director, and set up an interview.

To get a word in with Republican gubernatorial candidate Len Munsil, first speak with Daniel, who'll give you the phone number of Vernon, the media director, and you'll be speaking with the candidate in a few days.

If you want to talk to Barry Hess, he'll answer the phone.

New space, new face

Stage lights shine brighter than ever at the recently relocated Prism Theatre. For the only ASU student-run theater, almost everything is new this semester.

Prism Theatre didn't only change its space, but it went through a complete interior makeover done by its student board members and anyone lending a hand.
