The collection is titled "Photo- graphs and Inscriptions from the Rare Book Room and Texana Collections." Although many of the books are signed by the author, Martin Sarvis of the library staff said all are not rare or valuable. "Whether the signature in a book is valuable depends on the quality of the work, the recognition of the author and the scarcity of the signature," he said.

The North Texas Daily Page 6 Wednesday, January 25,1984 By HOLDEN LEWIS Staff Writer Forward Bill Nelson scored 26 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to lead the Eagles to a 103-91 victory over the UT-Arlington Mavericks Monday. The win lifted the Eagles to a 8-8 record and the first place spot in the Southland Conference. NT is 2-0 in conference play and is the only unbeaten team in SLC play. It was NT's first 100-point game of the season. Nelson was ecstatic about his 26-point, 11-rebound game. "1 could do it every night," he said. "We're coming together as a team. We just exe- cuted a little better than we did last week," Nelson said. "When our guards hit the jump shot, that shifted the defense to them and opened up the middle for me." NT dominated the game with snappy passes and good ball control. Coach Tommy Newman said, "Whenever you lose a seven-footer, you have to compromise. We could have gone with a bigger line- up, but we decided to go with quickness." One play that exemplifi...

Who was that masked man? And sober, yet. NT fraternities will ban alcohol at rush parties through the end of the week as a trial policy, in an attempt to phase out alcohol altogether at rush parties and to show the university that frats can do more than stage drunken greek orgies. They have minds, too. Since wet rushes are no longer vogue in frats across the country, and in order to cut rush costs, hangovers and missed classes by pledges and members alike, the Interfrater- nity Council passed the policy in November, stressing that it is only experimental. The response among frater- nities to this trial policy has been varied, but most are willing to comply with the IPC's policy. Violations could result in the guilty fraternity's exclusion from formal bid acceptance, which amounts to a hazing worse than ...

Thursday, January 26,1984 The North Texas Daily—Page 3 t i "t r 4 1 A . - > t \ News Briefs Marcos government, Catholics dash BACOLD, Philippines (AP)—A conflict between the Roman Catholic Church and the government of President Ferdinand E. Marcos has developed on the sugar-growing island of Negros where three priests and six lay workers have been charged with murder. The case against the three priests—Brian Gore of Perth, Australia; Niall O'Brien of Dublin, Ireland; and Vicente Danga, a Filipino—has focused attention on Negros, a central Philippines island. Thousands of poor workers live there in make- shift shacks amid vast haciendas run by some of the country's riches families. The gap between poor and rich has led to violence. The priests and lay workers said they were framed for the 1982 ambush murder of Kabankalan mayor Pablo Sola and four of his aides.

Page 4—The North Texas Daily Thursday, January 26,1984 Politicians poll to plan campaigns 4 By LAWANA HARRELL Daily Reporter Survey research to measure public sen- timent on candidates and election year issues is a fact of American political life, said C. Neal Tate of the political sci- ence faculty and Thomas Madron, man- ager of the academic computing center. One major pollster estimated that in 1980, candidates at all levels spent a total of more than $20 million for as many as 2,000 polls. Such expenidtures seem to be hard proof that candidates believe in the need for political polling, they said. Why is such data valued so dearly by political candidates and how seriously should readers and viewers take the find- ings of polls? PUBLIC POLLS ARE of chief value to political candidates, who frequently base their appeals to voters on the data collected in privately commissioned opin- ion polls. "After all, competition among candidates is a cru- cial part of the democratic government...

Taylor, who received her masters degree from NT last December, will be featured on the Phil Donahue Show at 9 a.m. today on Channel 5 to display skirts she designed for men. She first got the idea from her teacher, Henry Swartz of the art faculty, when she was searching for a thesis idea.

"But after doing historical research 1 discovered that men have been wearing skirts for ages and I really got excit- ed with the idea."

The North Texas Daily 1 Friday, January 27, 1984 Editorials m-mm. boobs' tube If Norman Rockwell were to paint a picture depicting a typical day in an American household, Mother, Father, Jane, Dick and Spot would be sitting mesmerized, with bulging eyes, in front of the television set. Families together for talking, singing or playing games seems to be almost a forgotten part of the past. Instead of worrying about 1984, people should be concerned about what happened in 1983. 1983 was the year of the boob tube. America watched more television than ever in 1983, according to statistics just released by the A.C. Nielsen Co. The average American TV set was on for seven hours and two minutes each day. For the past six years, TV viewing has increased. This year, viewing increased 14 minutes, equaling the record for the largest annual increase that was set in 1964. 1983 was the first time viewing surpassed seven hours.

First of all, in my mind at least, elector- al reorganization is not a "dead issue." It is an issue that has been tossed about for about two years, and yes, it seems as though we have beat it to death, but it is still alive.

Page 4—The North Texas Daily Friday, January 27,1984 Center provides help Office offers counseling, testing services By TERR1 RUSHING Daily Reporter The Counseling and Testing Center, on the third level of the University Union, offers students personal counsel- ing, developmental group counseling and consulting. Personal counseling is the heart of the center, said Dr. Tom Overton, director of the center. PERSONAL counseling includes both personal problem and career counseling. Many schools separate the two, but NT combines them because "any problem is a personal problem," Overton said. A large part of identity is related to what a person sees himself doing in life, he said. Indecision about career plans can lower self-confidence and increase anxiety. Counseling at the center ranges from confirming the student's ideas and goals, to working through and attempting to allay deep-seated problems and confusion. In the fall of 1983, 70 people were on a waiting list for personal coun- selin...

"It's real hard to explain to your mother why you do that," she said. Patton, program director for the facul- ty and staff fitness program, ran a 50-mile ultramarathon around Bachman Lake in Dallas Jan. 21. She said it was not as hard as it sounds. "It sounds like an awful, gruesome thing to do, but it was really pleasant," she said. "It's not a lot more strenuous than working around the house all day—bending, reach- ing, stretching. "I was really sur- prised it was easy as it was." Patton said she ran in the race because "it was just a real fun kind of challenge."

The department deserves a pat on the back for the cre- ation of the "One-Plus Program," a way around the state charter that will help needy people get through the rough spots. The volunteer program, be- gun in November, asks Den- ton citizens to donate a dollar each month to the department to help about 200 needy fam- ilies pay utility bills during the year.

The bill, approved by unanimous voice vote and sent to the Senate, is intended as temporary compensation until the federal Center for Disease Control completes a full study. The study, expect- ed in 1987 or 1988, researches possible links between Agent Orange and later health problems. The bill is a compromise between those who were pressing for a fuller, permanent program, and those who believed it is too early to know about the effects of Agent Orange.
