(AP>—The reborn U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, despite a majority that is expected to back President Ronald Reagan's conservative views, unanimously declared in a res- olution Monday its independence "from the White House or any other group." The resolution was introduced at the com- mission's first formal meeting by John. H. Bunzel, one of the new commissioners expected to help steer the panel away from support of forced bus- ing and affirmative action quotas. Bun/el said his motion was prompted by a news item last week, which quoted an unnamed White House official saying, "Now that we have the Civil Rights Commission on our side, we can make use of them to run some interference for us."

Hurt (star of such films as "Body Heat," "The Big Chill," "Altered States," "Eye- witness") again establishes himself as one of the finest young actors of the '80s. "Gorky Park" has a story line we all have heard before but the exotic locale and a strong cast of characters make it good escapist enter- tainment. The story is complex but not des- pairingly complicated. THREE UNKNOWN people are found buried in Moscow's Gorky Park with their faces and fingertips removed to make identification impossible.

The team won two games and lost four to bring its record to 6-7. But that first glance can be deceptive. One of the Eagles' losses was to Arkansas, which is one of the top teams in the coun- try and a contender for the Southwest Con- ference title.

The adoption of new biology textbook guidelines Satur- day by the Texas State Board of Education may have doomed to temporary obscurity the name of Charles Darwin, the 19th century biologist who developed the theory of evolution. The decision, heralded by critics as a step backward for Texas education, was actually a non-decision because the board merely said biology textbooks do not necessari- ly have to include the theory of evolution or mention Darwin in order to become standard text- books in Texas. But the decision, which re- verses the 1974 ruling that biol- ogy texts should present both evolutionary and creationist theo- ries, could cause the removal of the subject of evolution from text- books, since local school districts would be able to choose board- approved books that make ...

The court voted 5-4 that the Sony Corp. and other makers are not vio- lating U.S. copyright law by selling the machines, which the industry esti- mates are owned by about one of every 10 American families. U.S. sales of the recorders total nearly $2 billion. However, the high court may not have the last word in the high-stakes battle over video recorders.

ommentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Thursday, January 19, 1984 Editorials War 'on the cheap' i The Pentagon commission that investigated the Beirut truck bombing which killed 241 U.S. servicemen stated in late December that the U.S. military was unprepared to battle terrorists fighting "on the cheap." It was an idea whose time had already come, and, tragically, it may have to be taken to its extreme when dealing with hostile forces in Lebanon: shoot first, ask questions later. Such a strategy may not be manageable on the ground, where counterinsurgency or simple earth- en barricades can limit an enemy's ca- pability to strike effectively and where civilians can easily be mistaken for the enemy, but it may be the best tactic in one particularly hard-to-defend area: the air. One thing the terrorist attacks on the Marines in Beirut should have taught U.S. commanders is that they can ex- pect anything. Suicide truck-bomb at- tacks have forced the United States to confront an enemy wh...

lik Page 4—The North Texas Daily Preacher wants to ban rock group CORPUS CHRISTI <AP)—A group opposed to rock music has asked local ministers to join in prayer and fasting to prevent the band KISS from playing a scheduled concert Thursday night. "A rock concert often turns out to be a crash course in drugs, violence, satanism and rebellion," said Sam Shamoon, a member of People's Baptist Church, who is sponsoring the concert protest. About 20 people gathered Sunday at the Altar of Prayer Chruch to hear Sha- moon ask members of other Corpus Christi churches to participate in the prayer and fasting to keep the rock band out of the city. "We feel that prayer and fasting will prevent the concert. We are asking all pastors to pray and fast," Shamoon said. Shamoon says prayer is more produc- tive than politics. Last March, the group unsuccessfully asked the city council to ban rock concerts at municipal facilities. "I listened to all the arguments for the concert at the city council me...

But today their presence is a source of constant conflict between game managers trying to preserve one of the nation's last free-roaming buffalo herds, and farmers trying to grow barley and other crops in a wilderness area near the Artie Circle. On Thursday, a farmer accused of illegally killing three bison is to stand trial. Bison have roamed the area since two dozen of the animals were transplanted from Montana more than 50 years ago. The herd now numbers 300-400. In the 1970s, Gov. Jay Hammond selected the area as the site for a state-sponsored 60,000-acre devel- opment plan. The plan, the Delta Agricultural Project, was designed to grow barley fields in the midnight sun. THE UNOFFI...
