Parking facilities usually are overcrowded, and there have been problems with people parking in areas reserved for the sheriff and the han- dicapped, Commissioner Bill Switzer said. District Attorney Jerry Cobb said a resolution could be passed regulating parking, but it could not be enforced selectively. Last week Switzer suggested ticketing habitual offenders in the han- dicapped and sheriffs reserved slots. Cobb suggested county employees park in spaces provided in a nearby church parking lot. This way, people providing public services, such as jurors, would not have their cars towed, Cobb said. Cobb and County Judge Jerry Craw- ford said they will work on legal ...

The actual response rate is more than 80 percent, they say, about equal to the national average. "I don't know where the governor gets his figures," said Jan Sumner, public information coordinator with the regional census center in Dallas. Ms. Sumner said she spent one day last week verifying that the Texas return rate is only slightly lower than the national rate of ...

Runner races to honor Hocking sets Texas record at Baylor meet By DAVID WILLIAMS Daily Reporter Leuna Hocking was named the woman athlete of the meet at the Baylor In- vitational meet, winning the 1,500- meters by setting a Texas record. Hocking turned in a 4:21 in the 1,500 meters, took first in the 3,000 meters and ran a leg on the NT mile-relay team that placed third.

John Welsch scored a goal with three minutes left in the championship game Sunday to lift the Eagles to a 2-1 victory over UT-Austin, a team that has not beaten NT for four years. "I was very proud of the players," NT soccer Coach Simon Sanchez said. "They really did a superb job in this tournament. We played five games in three days and there was some pretty tough competition. This tournament win really will help our program." Welsch, Horacio Duhart and Eduardo, a newcomer from Brazil, were named to the all-tournament team. "Frank Monreal, who scored five goals in the tournament, deserved to make all-tournament also," Sanchez said. "Eduardo just came in for this one tournament and 1 sure hope he comes back in the fall. He really played well." NT won the first game against Southwest Texas State, 6-0, ...

City Attorney C.J. Taylor received notification from a department official at 11:20 a.m. Tuesday that changes in the system were approved. "They said they were mailing a letter stating the Justice Department was not interposing any objection to the new single-member system," he said. Mayor-elect Richard O. Stewart and Place 5 Councilman-elect Richard Taliaferro were sworn in during the council meeting. The notification eliminated conflict about the department's deadline to return a decision on the new system.

Commentary Editorials The North Texas Daily Page 2 Wednesday, April 23,1980 Laudable revenue use The Department of Energy's decision to grant UT- Austin $5 million to create the U.S. Institute for Fu- sion Studies represents prudent use of oil revenue to develop alternate energy sources. Though the institute will be one of the largest as- semblages of physicists researching fusion, a form of nuclear power that could satisfy the nation's energy needs, UT-Austin is being unjustly criticized for buy- ing the grant with its oilfield revenues. The university won the grant over prestigious Western and Northern schools by matching the federal grant with $5 million of its own money and by offering to create 10 new faculty positions for fusion theorists. Losing schools, which do not receive the revenue UT-Austin receives from oilfields, such as the Mas- sachusetts Institute of Technology, UCLA, Yale and New York University, charge UT-Austin bought its position as frontrunner in fusion resear...

•n MM| ijmt * f 1 t f t t r t i A Wednesday, April 23,1980 Record industry recovers from 1979 soles slump By DOUG MUELLER Daily Reporter Since the Beatles made their landing in the United States almost two decades ago, the U.S. recording industry has constantly expanded. Each year the industry sold more records than the year before. From 1963 to 1978, sales in the music business in- creased 500 percent. In 1978, U.S. sales reached $4.2 billion. Even during the economically difficult years of the '70s, record sales did not seem to be affected. If the economy was in a slump, the music industry profits did not reflect it. The school of thought on this was that when the economy is prosperous, the public had extra money to spend on entertainment, particularly albums and tapes. But if an economic recession hit, people would buy records as a form of escapism; music was a good buy. An album can provide endless hours of entertainment, even though prices have increased rapidly. Since 1974, th...

PAGE 6—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Wednesday, April 23,1980 Tuner tones-up NT's 310 pianos By BECKY HIRSCHHORN Special Writer Carrying a briefcase, a white- haired man entered NT's Recital Hall and silently strode toward the Steinway concert grand piano which dominated the small stage. Turning his back to the rows of empty purple seats, he set the briefcase on the piano bench and opened it. Herbert Speegle was ready to begin tuning one of NT's 310 pianos. Inside the body of the grand piano, he muted some of the strings by plac- ing a red felt strip next to them. Most notes on the piano are sounded by groups of three stings, so muting is necessary to hear individual strings. Holding a slender, silver tuning fork between his thumb and forefinger, he struck it and listened carefully to the pitch — an A at a fre- quency of 440 cycles per second, the standard tuning pitch. Although Speegle knew the pitch by memory, he used the tuning fork to be certain. "Even people who have perfect pitch (com...

%V'i; PAGE 8—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Wednesday, April 23,1980 m Rc I". Sport Scope Careless quotes plague athletics By KEVIN "DOC" SHAY Staff Writer Gene Shue, former Philadelphia 76ers basketball coach, had enough. His players were popping off to villainous newspaper reporters all week with gripes and other inside information. He called a team meeting to attempt to curb his motor-mouth players. "Fifteen minutes after the meeting, a reporter had the story," he sighed. It seems the press cannot be curtailed. Wherever there is a good quote or story to be found, it's a safe bet that a reporter will be around to catch it. And if there is not, one will hear about it somehow. During the past semester, 1 have been fortunate enough to hit upon some of these goldmines around the NT campus, such as: • Suzanne Norton, women's golf coach, (from a press release): "This course is easy to score on." • Basketball Coach Bill Blakeley (after his team beat TCU three days after losing badly to Texas Tech...

Absentee voting is being conducted from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and Friday in the city secretary's office.

Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Thursday, April 24,1980 Editorials NT's 'Fahrenheit 451' Recent news stories about the Willis Library have been reminiscent of Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451. The picture of librarians tearing covers off books, rendering them unusable before sending them down the dumpster, is necessarily repugnant, clashing with the picture of libraries as preservers of books. Despite the ugliness of the picture, the destruction of books at NT bears only a surface resemblance to the activity of Bradbury's firemen. The purpose is not to destroy the knowledge the library has to offer but to enhance it. The destruction of 2,200 books in 1978-79 may seem wanton, but library officials are quick to say the vast majority of books are not only old, out-of-date and superfluous but are badly damaged as well. The NT libraries must make room for 40,000 new books each year. A lack of shelf space aggravates the problem of too many books. Planners anticipated this situation w...

Thursday, April 24,1960 THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY—PAGE 7 > ( . ) Case faces his biggest challenge yet i By DAVID MOORE Staff Writer In front of Jordan Case is a tire, hang- ing by a rope from a tree branch. His father sets the tire in motion, and Case reacts. Ball in hand, he drops back behind his imaginary pass protection. Muscles flexing, he releases the ball in a spiral, trying to hit the moving tire as he would a moving receiver. Over and over the scene is repeated. Thirty minutes. Forty-five minutes. An hour. Each throw is a challenge. Sometimes the ball sails wide, sometimes high. More often, the ball finds its mark, and the challenge is met. Challenges. Those are something Case has faced throughout his football career. The biggest challenge of all, however, will comc on Tuesday. For Tuesday is the National Football League draft. "I'M NOT like Marc Wilson (Brig- ham Young quarterback) who knows he will go high in the draft," Case said. "I'm just hoping that I go. That's the big...
