"Modern academic music is sterile and doesn't fill traditional aesthetic needs," Robinson, Denton senior and NT music major, said. "Society has an investment in having normal states of consciousness, but now there is a realization now that the first step in art is the fundamental transmission of spiritual experience." Robinson, a composition major, said his music tries to translate spiritual experiences. He will present his senior recital at 8:15 p.m. today in the Music Building Concert Hall. Robinson was born in Denton in 1955. He went to Eastman School of Music for a year, has beg...

"We got everyone we were trying to get," Doug Ray, sports information director, said. Athletic Director Fred McCain said, "We got a good bunch of boys this time. Of course, you never know how good they are until they get on the playing field." Head Coach Corky Nelson, five assis- tant coaches and athletic trainer Harold Bennet went to the high schools of the seniors Wednesday with the letters for the players to sign. Ralph Roberson, 5-8, 164-pound safe- ty from Bay City High School was one of the first to sign with NT.

Standards for admission, graduation and student teaching will be raised next fall for new students in the College of Ed- ucation. and higher admission standards could decrease undergraduate enrollment in the college by as much as one-half, said the dean of the College of Education.

The devious art of railroading was practiced by the Stu- dent Association president and three SA members Wed- nesday, when they introduced an electoral reorganization bill that was only 2 hours old and unknown to any stu- dents outside the association. In fact, until someone asked, the SA president did not inform all SA members that the bill was a newly written one, and not the one she said would be introduced at the meeting. Both she and SA member David Henderson said in newspaper articles Tuesday and Wednesday that their electoral bill that was not passed last semester was being reintroduced Wednesday night. And until she was asked, the president didn't mention that she had declared the bill emergency legislation. And so, to the bitter end, 29 at-large representatives and their president were as unrepresentative as possible while passing 29-4 a bill th...

"If the pace of scientific and technological change accelerates, then the information and knowledge that U.S. col- lege graduates imbibe is increasingly like- ly to be obsolete. It makes less and less sense to assume that any given body of knowledge is itself indispensible. The need- ed educational tools are those that mean learning how to learn." EDGERTON HERE echoes nearly every observer of the educational and social scene. And the "tools" to which he refers are most readily developed in those areas of learning traditionally called the arts and sciences: the plastic and performing arts such as painting, sculpture, dance, drama, music; the humanistic arts such as literature, writing, langu...

"In the 19th century the harp was consid- ered an instrument that fashionable ladies played," Zabaleta said. "It was showy and not taken seriously."

Dick Kunkcl of the radio/television/film divi- sion presented a $45,599 budget request for KNTU-FM 88.1. The request, which is $599 more than the radio station received in 1983, includes $17,000 for recording and broadcast- ing equipment. Since the Federal Communications Com- mission classifies KNTU as a nonprofit station, that station cannot use advertisements and must rely on funding from the division and from student service fees, Kunkcl said. The station received $14,500 from the division for 1983-84. Student Association President Lee Ann Woods presented the association's $22,(XX) bud- get request, which is ...

Commentary The North Texas Daily Editorials Page 2 Tuesday, February 14, 1984 Andropov's death Soviet leader Yuri Andropov's death comes as no surprise. Kremlin watchers have suspected all along that Andropov's six-month illness was more serious than a trifling head cold. The Reagan administration should now be prepared to extend the hand of reconciliation and offer to resume strategic and tactical nuclear missiles talks in Geneva. The Soviet Union broke off the Geneva talks on medium- range missiles last November when deployment of cruise and Pershing II missiles began in Britain and West Germany. Part of the reason was, undoubtedly, the deployment. But part of the reason could also have been Andropov 's poor health, and his apparent lack of command, which the Korean airliner incident illustrated. Before they left the talks, the Soviets announced they were reacting to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's deployment by preparing to deploy tactical missiles in East Germany and Cz...

The study, prepared by an outside consulting firm for the U.S. Agency for International Dev- elopment, suggests overhauling Salvadoran bank- ing and enforcing anti-black market laws. The abuses cited in the 100-page report could undermine congressional support for President Ron- ald Reagan's request for more U.S. economic aid to El Salvador. Citing the report recently, Rep. Michael Barnes, D-Md., said it shows "rampant mismanagement and corruption in the use of foreign exchange assis- tance that the United States has provided ..."

Winter might still claim a few more cold days, but it has lost its battle with spring. Healing winter's brutalities with cool breezes and warm rains, spring breathes life into plants and animals and people. It brings renaissance—and hope. Modern man flirts with the idea that ancient man, in his ignorance, might have believed spring would never arrive. Yet, the changing seasons were probably as real and predictable to ancient man as his own physical changes. Just as he experienced a spiritual rebirth, he knew the earth would experience physical rebirth. Because of seasonal rebirth, man is able to live and reproduce with hope and happiness. He transforms in step with nature. And like the seasons, people can grow and change. It's as predictable as the rising sun. And the hope of renaissance in all things at all times remains the...
