Arts & Entertainment The North Texas Daily Page 5 Friday, February 3, 1984 ► n I >> i Bassoonist blows 'no respect' Musical roles help shape wrong impression By RUSSELL ROE Staff Writer Sue Schricr of the music faculty thinks the bassoon is a misunderstood instrument. Schrier, a bassoon teacher at NT, said many people have the wrong impression of bassoons and bassoonists. "It's played badly a lot." she said, and that contributes to the wrong impression peo- ple have ot bassoons. She said if someone heard a good bassoonist playing he would probably say, "I had no idea the bassoon could sound like that." Often a bassoonist will perform the part of the elephant or the drunken sailor in a piece ol music, she said, and is known as the clown of the orchestra. Relatively little music literature exists for bassoon because of the limitations of the instrument, she said. Like the pianist and harpist, the bassoonist uses all his lingers "and he's also got to blow," she said. "You don...

. J. &r Page &—The North Texas Daily Thielemann puts football in mouth with comment By ROBERT SHELTON Staff Writer Ignorance is impenetrable. The NT football team had an 8-4 record in the 1983 season, was co-champion of the Southland Con- ference and advanced to the quarterfinal round of the NCAA Division I-AA playoffs. But it's still degraded by some of the less informed members of society—namely an offensive lineman for the National Football League's Atlanta Falcons named R.C. Thielemann. Sportscope Thielemann showed his ignorance about the quality of the 1983 NT football team in a column by Glenn Sheeley in the Dec. 5 issue of the Atlanta Journal. The day before the article was published, the Fal- cons were defeated by the Washington Redskins 37-21. In the first half, the Falcons played terribly, trailing at halftime 27-0. Maybe it was humiliation that drove Thielemann to disparage the Mean Green. It's not unusual for crass people to drag down those more successful than t...

Dr. Tom Preston, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, said the Core Cur- riculum Task Force did a good job. "I think it (the proposal) is called the origi- nal sin." he said. "Now that this is behind us, we can go ahead. We needed to have input and now we can rethink the pro- posal "We seem to be course-ridden. We started with courses in the catalog, rath- er than a body of knowledge. We should have started the other way around and let the department make its own courses."

StoT: The North Texas Daily Page 2 Tuesday, February 7, 1984 : t Editorials Reagan, you devil One must give the devil his due. One day after President Ronald Reagan submitted his bloated 1985 budget proposal to Congress, two of his advisers virtually pleaded with lawmakers to reject it and join in a bipartisan search for a less monstrous budget. Fiendishly clever, that Reagan. Reagan knows his budget, with its $180 billion deficit. will force the government to compete in credit markets to finance the debt, thus causing higher interests rates and stunt- ing the economic growth he's trying to save by not raising taxes. Reagan knows Congress will lie forced to pare his budget, making the Democratic party liable for cutting special inter- est funding in a desperate effort to reduce Reagan's deficit, which is greater than all previous deficits combined. And Reagan knows military spending, which accounts for every penny of the incomprehensible deficit, will have to be reduced. But the Dem...

The North Texas Daily ■ Editorials Wednesday, February 8, 1984 'Steee-rike three!' Republican convention officials went to bat last week, but the poor struck out again. At a mec'ing in Arlington, Va., officials were informed that Fran Chiles, the wife of Eddie "I'm mad" Chiles, is trying to schedule a Texas Ranger baseball game during the day for the Republican National Convention this sum- mer so delegates can see the team and still do their demo- cratic duty at night. Since Eddie Chiles owns the team and is a staunch Republican, the day game will be probably be played. That means baseball fans who have to work for a living will miss a game. Strike one. The officials were told that the Dallas Convention Fund Corporation is far behind in its efforts to raise money to pay for the convention. The corporation was created to raise $3.9 million, the estimated cost of the convention, from private sources so that the city would not have to use tax dollars, some of them Democrats' tax dolla...

' The North Texas Daily Page 2 Thursday, February 9, 1984 Editorials What? No electives? Future NT students owe Dr. Thomas Preston, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, a massive intellectual debt. Had not Preston asked members of the Core Curric- ulum Task Force at a faculty debate Monday whether it might be better to design a core curriculum with ideal courses, instead of a core composed of existing courses, students new to NT may have found their entire college careers planned out for them. The task force recommended a core, which every stu- dent would have to take, of 75 hours. Add that to a 30- hour major and an 18-hour minor, and 123 hours of the required 124 to graduate are already accounted for. Cur- rently, most students have about 12 hours of electives. The problem, of course, is departmental politics. Prac- tically every department wants its classes in the core. More important than providing students an environment in which they can expand and grow as their interests...

Tower used the car for two days in July to visit his ancestral home in Norwich and to tour London with his daughter Penny, said Linda Hill, Tower's press secretary. She said the rental of the car and driver was arranged by the U.S. Embassy and cost taxpay- ers $880. Tower didn't pay for the car's use because he was never billed for it due to a "series of bookkeeping errors," Hill said. "It just fell through the cracks," she said.
