■* ,u;*,; PAGE 4-THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Court To Question Death Penalty Law Thursday, April 1, 1976 WASHINGTON (AP>-With Justice John Paul Stevens in a possibly pivotal position, the Supreme Court will hear arguments this week on the con- stitutionality of the death penalty. Since June 19, 1972, when the court ruled 5-4 that the laws then on the books were unconstitutional, 34 states have passed new laws and escaped having them struck down by lower courts. There now are more than 450 men and women on death row in the nation's prisons, and their fate could be deter- mined by the high court's decision. NO ONE HAS been executed in the United States since June 2, 1967, when Jorge Luis Monge went to the Colorado gas chamber for murder. The arguments the court will hear Tuesday and Wednesday arise from death sentences given to six convicted murderers in Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina and Texas. The five states present a cross-section of the approaches legislatures have take...

The issue being re-evaluated is "detente," the word used to describe the triangular foreign policy relationships among the United States, the Soviet Union and Communist China. Criticisms resulting from a less-than- perfect relationship among the three world powers are not limited to com- plaints from either the conservative or liberal camps, or aspirants to any political philosophy in between, Dr. Stanley Thames of the political science faculty said recently. INSTEAD, THE problem appears to be one of a general ignorance of seman- tics. he said Dr. Thames who teaches a course in "Contemporary International Problems," said most Americans mis- interpreted the...

t# 4 Saturday Vote Will Decide Wet-Dry Issue By MIKE PACE, Daily Reporter Denton city residents go to the polls Saturday to decide if beer and wine will be sold publicly in Denton, City council and school board members will also be elected on Saturday. According to Mrs. Mary Jo Hill, Denton County clerk, the major problem will be with persons voting who do not live within the city limits. Mrs. Hill said that the election covers only the city, and county residents are not eligible to vote. Because the boundaries of several precincts extend outside city limits, many residents are not sure exactly where they live, she said. Mrs. Hill advises all poten- tial voters to make sure they do live within city limits. ANOTHER PROBLEM fore- seen by both Mrs. Hill is the ballot used in local option election. The ballot is different from ones used for other elections. Instead of placing checkmarks in boxes, voters must mark out the state- ment they are opposed to. Mrs. Hill said the reason for the...

li *• Dentonites Vote Wet, Approve Sale of Beer, Wine By MIKE PAGE Dally Reporter Despite long waits in the rain, Denton voters turned out Satur- day in record numbers to vote the city wet. As a result of the 4,832-4,250 vote, city residents now will be able to purchase beer and wine in local stores for the first time since 1902, when Denton voted to go dry. Most of the voters polled See related story, Page S Saturday by various groups said the main reason for voting wet was to increase the tax revenue in Denton. "Denton is just as wet as any other town," one voter said. The main reply from the dry supporters was, "I want to protect my family from beer joints." ELECTION OFFICIALS had not expected the turnout to be so great and consequently had only one set of ballot boxes for the city council race. This slowed the line, which by 8 a.m. had more than 200 persons in it. At 10:30 a.m. another set of boxes was put into use, cutting time in line almost in half. "I have lived here since '...

Only in a democracy do individuals have an op- portunity to participate in deciding the really im- portant issues facing them. Indeed, this is the very essence of democracy. The people of the United States are determining the shape of tomorrow's world. The sovereign voters, with their ballots, control some of the most powerful military weapons ever developed, dictate the expenditures of more than a hundred billion dollars every year and decide the fate of nations and of people. The voters in America bear an awesome responsibility. There is no prize for second place in a political contest. The margin of victory is not important.
