CAB considers Dr. Ruth to speak at later event about sex therapy

David Haut

In their second meeting following spring break, Missouri Southern’s Campus Activities Board discussed speakers for the upcoming semesters.

Dr. Ruth Westheimer, psychosexual therapist, was one of the possible speakers for next year’s Healthy Relationships Week.

Another possibility is Morgan Spurlock, the filmmaker who put his body on the line by eating an all-McDonald’s diet for a month. His documentary, Supersize Me has been compared to Michael Moore’s Bowling for Columbine.

Jim Morris, the high-school science teacher who inspired the Walt Disney movie The Rookie, was another possibility.

Prospects named at Wednesday’s meeting were Lance Armstrong, Scott Hamilton, Montel Williams and Dave Barry.

A prospect will be chosen based on cost and student interest. Students with ideas are encouraged to attend CAB.

Other ideas include a campus-wide debate. Suggested topics were gay marriage, the death penalty, gun control and pornography.

Terry Levy, junior criminal justice/pre-law major, suggested a yearbook to replace Crossroads: The Magazine. He plans to start a petition soon.

Darren Fullerton, director of campus recreation, announced the rec center survey is up and running.

Prizes will be awarded for participating in the survey and include a DVD player and two $50 gift certificates to the bookstore.

“The survey and the drawing are not linked together,” Fullerton said.

“There is no way to connect [a student’s] name to the survey.”

Hunter “Patch” Adams, the controversial doctor whose story inspired a feature film, will be coming to the University April 19.

He will speak at 7 p.m., in the Leggett & Platt Athletic Center. The lecture is free to the public.

CAB will sponsor a free showing of the film Patch Adams at 7 p.m., April 14 in the Lion’s Den. Free pizza will be provided. The film will also be shown during the lunchtime hours in the Lion’s Den a week prior to the lecture.
