The North Texas Daily THURSDAY, APRIL 3, 1980 NORTH TEXAS STATE UNIVERSITY. DENTON. TEXAS 63RD YEAR NO. 98 1 . City Council OKs landmark plan despite opposition from citizens By KAREN BALL Daily Reporter Amid claims property owners' rights will be usurped, the City Council voted 3-1 Tuesday to create a historic land- mark commission that will have authority to zone sections of the city as historical sites. "Who in his right mind would volun- tarily subject his property to the types of controls that are included in this or- dinance?" Bob Pearce of 903 W. Oak St. asked. West Oak Street apparently will be among the first areas in Denton affected by the ordinance because several older homes are located on the street, PEARCE TOLD the council the or- dinance will require him to come before the nine-member historical commission for permission to work on the exterior of his home, including obtaining approval of the paint color he uses to repaint his house.

Editorials J Integration compliance After 25 years it appears the Dallas Independent School District is starting to comply with court- ordered desegregation, this time without further court battles. Following time and distance studies ordered by U.S. District Judge William M. Taylor to determine whether one-race schools could be justified or if a stu- dent assignment plan is needed, the plaintiffs and D1SD are moving to an out-of-court settlement. Taylor has been forming desegregation plans for Dallas schools since 1970, all of which have been returned by the 5th Circuit Court for failure to meet the requirements of the original court order to desegregate. The current plan, which was ordered by Taylor in 1976, buses children in grades four through eight, leav- ing primary and high school students in neighborhood schools. The plan was returned to Taylor by the appellate court, which ordered Taylor to justify the existence of more than 50 one-race schools in the district or for- mulat...

Computer cues singers Three NT sopranos took their cues from a computer Monday night in a per- formance of NT music faculty composer Larry Austin's "Protoforms: Hybrid Musics for Three Sopranos and Com- puter." The concert, held at the Caruth Auditorium at SMU, featured one faculty and two student vocalists. Faculty member Laurel Miller said she, Sue Ellen Scheppke, Denton graduate student, and Margaret Barrington, Austin senior, were staged along with a synthesizer. The performance was directed by a computer programmed by Austin. Musical cues were given by the com- puter through both earphones or a television screen. Ms. Miller said the experience was a new one for her and a bit frustrating since her contact with the other per- formers was not the same as without earphones. "I don't feel like I'm part ...

Dr. Ray Lewis of Career Planning and Placement said the outlook for job op- portunities in the '80s is good if can- didates are willing to go where the jobs are. In the field of education, Dr. Lewis said, teachers in areas such as earth science, math and physical science are in great demand. Overall, 1980 college graduates will find the outlook favorable, the board reported in its latest employment oppor- tunities survey, with an estimated 36,480 to 44,050 jobs available for the 40,300 graduates with bachelor's degrees.

Thursday, April 3,1980 THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY-PAGE 5 Test board releases answers Grade point average, exam scores determine admission By BELINDA WILLIS Daily Reporter Students who took the Graduate Record Examinations Aptitude Test may receive a copy of questions and answers used in the test. Sample tests of the GRE are made available as preparation for the test. Ac- cording to the GRE board, sponsors of the test, this is the first time questions and answers have been made public im- mediately after the test administration. The GRE is used to measure the ap- titude of students applying for graduate school admission. The GRE board is an affiliate of the Educational Testing Ser- vice. The service also administers the Scholastic Aptitude Test. DR. HUGH Kirkpatrick, associate dean of the NT graduate school, said the GRE is used by a majority of the country's universities but each uses it in a different way. "Some schools only look at GRE scores. We use the undergraduate record as a basis...

m PAGE 6—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY 'mM "i Voters show apathy The percentage of residents registered to vote in Denton, Dallas and Tar- rant counties is lower than the national percentage of registered voters. A Gallup Poll conducted during January and February indicated 70 per- cent of eligible voters in the country were registered. About 56 percent of eligible voters in Denton County are registered. The 1970 census reported 70 percent of the people residing in Denton County were older than 18 years of age and eligible to vote. With a current population of 125,000 in Denton County, 87,850 residents are eligible to vote, according to the 1970 percentage. Last month the Denton County Voter Registration office said more than 49,800 people registered for the City Council and School Board elections and the May primaries. In the 1976 presidential election, 40,207 people voted when about 48,000 were registered, which means 83 percent of the county's registered voters participated in the electi...

Dodge is one of the top Eagles in wins this spring. Dodge, one of the more con- sistent players, relies on his steady groundstrokes, speed and quickness. "I have been pleased with my play so far this year. I have been playing No. 5 or 6 until recently, when I moved up the ladder to play No. 3, 4 or 5 in the singles lineup," Dodge said. "The team has been playing pretty good this year. We are very young and I think we are probably a year away from having a great team." NT has not been invited to the National Collegiate-Athletic Associa- tion national tennis tournament, but Dodge said he believes the Eagles have a good chance to go to the tourney next year.

Thursday, April 3,1980 \ Mean Green seeks xBig Time' center By DAVID MOORE Staff Writer He stands 6-9, and his 240 pounds definitely helped him underneath the basket in junior college where he averaged 18 points and 18 rebounds a game. Already, he has visited with basketball coaches at SMU, St. Louis University, Nevado-Reno and Alabama about playing for their programs in the fall. This week, he visited NT. He is Charles "Big Time" Jones. Jones played this past season at McLen- nan Community College in Waco, the school that sent Vinnie Johnson to Baylor and Sam Worthen to Marquette. He is the big, strong center NT desperately needs, and basketball Coach Bill Blakeley said he hopes he can persuade "Big Time' to come to Denton. "I know we won't sign him the first day of national signing (Wednesday), and I know some other schools are going after him pretty hard," Blakeley said. "But yeah, I think we've got a shot at signing him. Of course, you never really...

Budget cuts spur coalition to take action By VIVIAN HALL Daily Reporter A coalition of NT minority students is scheduled to demonstrate Monday in protest of what members claim is dis- crimination in a proposed budgeting cut. The demonstration, which will be in front of the Administration Building from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., is the coalition's first step in a plan of action members say could end in the Texas Legislature. Members are protesting a proposed $28,075 budget slash of the Intercultural Services Office to other student service organizations during the 1980-81 fiscal year. The coalition consists of members from the NT chapters of La CAUSA, Black Coalition and the National As- sociation for the Advancement of Colored People. Although Dean of Students Joe Stewart said the budget has not been finalized, his initial recommendation may stand. Acting President John L. Carter said the budgets are being fed into the univer- sity's computer system and it would be virtually impossible to c...

• ; 'i■jT, " f,- '" Commentai •y Page 2 The North Texas Daily Friday, April 4,1980 Editorials Enforcing traffic laws The Texas Department of Public Safety deserves praise for its plan to increase use of unmarked patrol cars equipped with radar to crack down on speeders. Troopers will have the element of surprise on their side in the fight against habitual traffic violators. The department is not playing games, Sgt. Wendell Deaton, commander of troopers stationed in Denton County, said. "We're trying to save gas and save lives," he said. Generally the DPS uses unmarked cars to detect speeders and uses marked cars to stop violators. Although officials in Denton and Dallas counties say use of the system has been light, unmarked cars seem to get results. In Denton County during March, an unmarked car was used only four hours, but 22 speeding tickets were issued. Many Americans seem to view the work of the highway patrol in controlling speed as an infringement on their rights, giving lit...

The art will be auctioned in the Western Heritage Sale in Houston May 30-31 with 25 head of Santa Gertrudis cattle and 25 quarter horses for an es- timated $2 million, Joe Marcham, Piano land developer and Santa Gertrudis breeder, said.

PAGE 4—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Friday, April 4,1980 Marionettes live by thread alone By TERM BANNING Daily Reporter The lights dim and the curtains are drawn on the seven-foot, hand-painted cardboard stage. Three actors dance out, the first a rugged-looking French woodsman with blue suit and cap, the second a chubby girl with a basket of fruit and the last a tall, thin gray wolf with pointed teeth. They can bow, walk, run and sit, and their arms and legs move with the tug of a string or the twitch of a wooden con- trol. With bodies of papier-mache or cloth and costumes from material scraps, they act out the tale of Little Red Riding Hood to a prerecorded Spanish script. Although capable of dramatic acting, these miniature actors are not real. They are marionettes created and controlled by Doris Hicks of the foreign language faculty. "1 have been interested in puppets all my life," she said. "Last summer I made some simple bird hand puppets and the people where 1 worked wanted to buy t...

TEXAS 63RD YEAR NO. 100 Few teachers hear talk on bargaining By BILL CHRISTENSEN Staff Writer Less than 20 of NT's 732 faculty members Monday heard a represen- tative of the American Federation of Teachers speak on collective bargaining in higher education. Robert Nielsen, FTA assistant to the president for higher education, said it is wrong to think a union is not Tit for a university because — unlike an automobile factory where everyone has a similar job — there is too much diver- sity. "Some have this misconception that you take the industrial model and im- pose it on a university. This is not even true in the industrial sector. There is no model...collective bargaining is a process that adapts itself to the problems of the university," he said. There are some universities, Nielsen said, where the faculty senate and the union are the same. There are others where t...

Editorial Vote for a new system The Student Association spring election offers the student body its usual selection of non-choices for president and vice president. None of the teams deserve endorsement, particularly when the only difference in their qualifications is who has spent a longer amount of time in an organization that neither represents nor serves the interests of stu- dents. The fault is not with the individuals so much as the system. In an attempt to mock democratic govern- ment, popular election is the tool used to select officers and representatives. Popular election, however, is not representative or democratic when only 11 percent of the electorate turn out to vote. The statistics become worse when one considers the margin of victory for some representatives has been a scant 10 votes. The usual response to this is an indictment of stu- dent apathy. Why don't students vote for THEIR representatives in THEIR student government? The apathy goes further than the electio...

With Henry Fonda in the starring role, "The Oldest Living Graduate," written by the late Dallas playwright Preston Jones as part of his popular "Texas Trilogy," was chosen as the first in a series of NBC-TV presentations of contemporary plays developed in and broadcast from regional theaters across the country. The first dress rehearsal of the play was a delightfully impressive perfor- mance. After an hour wait at the doors of SMU's Bob Hope Theater, the audience was allowed to become part of a unique atmoshpere which was not quite a televi- sion studio, and not quite a theater. The stage was framed by scaffolding hung with extra lights to compensate for color ca...

Called underground houses, the dwellings are not necessarily dug out of the earth but are designed to support hundreds of pounds of in- sulating dirt that will keep indoor temperatures between 65 and 75 degrees. After the framing process is completed, wire mesh is attached, forming a support for the one-inch thick ferro-concrete shell. The passive solar design used for the houses will diminish the need for outside energy. Openings are generally restricted to southerly exposure. Skylights provide natural light. Roof vents allow escape of excess heat, and water is solar-heated. Most homes will have fireplaces. Doing without a "flush" toilet may sound p...
