Processed Picasso? Rembrandt on a floppy disc? While the computer may not make amateurs into masters overnight, its pres- ence in the art world causes fear in some that such feats arc almost possible. Dr. John Olvcra of the NT art faculty and instructor of an experimental com- puter art course, said computer art has yet to be accepted as "art." Computer-enhanced images and graph- ics have been used commercially for more than 20 years, he said, but computer- produced art for art's sake is only three or four years old. "You don't sec much of it at all in art galleries. That's because it isn't con- sidered a 'fine art,' " he said. Like the pencil, the computer can be an artist's tool. Olvcra said. "But some don't see that. They're afraid of the technology." The introduction of the camcra to the art...

The North Texas Daily P^ge 2 Tuesday, November 29, 1983 Editorials Making the switch Although the defection on Friday of a Chinese diplo- matic courier while en route to New York leaves the United States in an uncomfortable situation, his request for asy- lum cannot be denied, regardless of the damage it may inflict on U.S.-Chinese relations. Gogiang Yang was aboard Pan Am Flight 72 when he apparently decided that he would prefer U.S. citizenship to residence in China. However, his colleague, who was also on the flight, disagreed, and argued with Yang over the possession of documents destined for China's U.N. delegation. The pilot made an unscheduled landing at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport so the matter could be quickly resolved. After two hours of negotiations at the airport, Yang was escorted away. His associate kept the documents and remained on the plane, which contin- ued on its route to New York. The Immigration and Naturalization Service hasn't yet decided whether t...

t HRHHH The North Texas Daily Page 2 Wednesday, November 30, 1983 Editorials ( A law bottled up Denton's effort for safer roads and streets has been tem- porality corked; city officials apparently will not enforce the city's ordinance prohibiting open containers of alco- hol in automobiles. Denton, especially its police department, has an under- standable fear of enacting a law which would run counter to the Texas Constitution. Traffic stops and arrests made in keeping with Denton's container ordinance could result in lawsuits against the city and police department if the ordinance is later ruled unconstitutional. City officials are waiting on a request for an opinion from the Texas attorney general. The request involves a Corpus Christi law much like Denton's. Both laws pro- hibit keeping alcoholic beverages in open containers within the passenger compartment of automobiles on city streets, roads, alleys or sidewalks.

SSJPBP ' Page 6—The North Texas Daily Local educators cite self-discipline By LANA HENRY Daily Reporter In the early 1970s, a group of educa- tors and parents, concerned over stead- ily declining achievement test scores in public schools, began a movement they termed "back to basics." The idea was to return to a curricu- lum which provided intensive drill in the traditional three R's: reading, writing and arithmetic. It was believed that the master- ing of these areas would provide a strong basis of communication and reasoning skills necessary to all studies. Dorothy McFarling is the owner and director of Laboratory, Etc., a private school in Denton which utilizes the back to basics concept. She said the school's primary goals are teaching self-discipline and providing its students with a basis for discovering their own mind and cap- abilities. THE CURRICULUM at Laboratory, Etc. is centered on a strong phonics pro- gram which McFarling said produces ex- cellent readers and spellers....
