The North Texas Daily TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 1980 NORTH TEXAS STATE UNIVERSITY, DENTON. TEXAS 64TH YEAR NO. 5 I New fee surprises SA, sports NT budgets to face cost sharing By KAREN CI.ARK Staff Writer An across-the-board cost sharing assessment will be included in the I980-8I budgets of NT organizations funded by student service fees. Dean of Students Joe Stewart said Monday. All organizations will be assessed a charge based on a percentage of their allocated funding, he said. Student Association President Steve Player said 5 to 6 percent is a rough estimate of the assessments. Under the new accounting procedure, each organization is assessed a percentage of its approved student service fee budget based on a formula, Dr. Stewart said. Dr. Stewart said he did not know how the formula operated. George Hardin, director of budgets, systems and procedures, is in charge of applying the formula and determining the assessment charges. Dr. Stewart said. Hardin could not be reached for commen...

Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Tuesday, September 9, 1980 Editorials Liberal Polish reforms With the installation of Poland's new leader, Stanislow Kania, it appears the Communist Party leadership has taken an encouraging step toward liberalization. In his acceptance speech. Kania promised not to revoke the gains of the workers and promised to go farther down the road of liberalization so the govern- ment can restore the worker's faith in it. He said the government would allow the labor unions to develop, but cautioned they must stand on the ground of socialism. "Democracy is a great need of socialism," he said. His task will not be an easy one. His appointment comes at a time when Poland's economy is in sham- bles. Rising oil prices and slowed trade with the West has taken its toll. Its agricultural industry has been hit with two years of the worst weather in recent history. Probably Kama's most difficult problem will be getting the un- productive Polish workers to produce...

Tuesday, September 9, 1980 THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY—PAGE 3 NT alumnus becomes West Coast studio musician By DENISF. MORKIS Special Writer LOS ANGELtS—Playing sax- ophone professionally since he was 15, I O'clock Lab Band alumnus Lon Price can pride himself in saying, "I have never had a non-music gig." He bought his own clothes and horns while attending high school in Fort Worth and supported himself in college with money made from playing music. Now he is a family man and studio musi- cian in Los Angeles who has toured the world with Joan Armatrading and played with Al Jarreau, Elton John and Rod Stewart. Thirty-four-year-old Price attended NT sporadically from 1964 to 1969, between stints on the Last and West coasts. He sees the music department as a place where "the teachers don't have that much to say about it. It's more of an environment where the students teach each other. "HR1 I DI N'S BIGGEST talent is his ability to spot and attract really good musicians, kind of like a footba...

Average rate goes down as property taxes increase By BILL BRAUCKMULLER Staff Writer. Although Denton County Commis- sioners approved a 10-cent increase in county property taxes Monday, County Judge Jerry Crawford said county resi- dents' tax bills will not increase because other taxes have been decreased or eliminated. The commissioners increased the county's ad valorem tax rate from 67 cents per $100 assessed valuation at 30 percent of the estimated market value to 77 cents per $100 . However. Crawford said, the average resident's overall 19X1 tax bill will ac- tually be less than his 1980 bill because the county has eliminated its automobile sales tax of $30 and granted a 3 percent discount on August property taxes, and becau...

Monreal and Welsch had two goals and one assist each as the Eagles dominated the Frogs for their second win of the season, head coach Richard Lowe said. The win, coupled with NT's l-O vic- tory over nationally-ranked Indiana last Tuesday, gives the Mean Green a shot at a national ranking, Lowe said. Soccer teams are ranked two ways, regionally and nationally. Lowe said he expects the team to be ranked high regionally. If NT is nationally ranked, it would be the first ranking in the school's soccer history, he said. Rankings will be released this week. Lowe, although pleased about the wins, said he does not want to get too optimistic after two games. In his first year as head coach, Lowe said he is stressing...

That is exactly what NT did to the UT-Arlington Saturday in brand new Maverick Stadium, winning 31-14. "They just whipped us up front, plain and simple," Maverick head coach Bud Elliot said. "This is the least physical I've seen us in four years." NT head coach Jerry Moore agreed. "We beat them on the line," he said. "Our defensive line contained them after we became used to the option." THE EAGLE offense piled up impres- sive statistics, with quarterback Joe Stevenson completing 17 of 28 passes for 180 yards with one interception, and six Eagle running backs rushed for 239...

TEXAS 64TH YEAR NO. 6 NT plans improvement of street drainage system By BARBARACORDRAY Daily Reporter A drainage improvement project that will disrupt parking on campus is scheduled to begin next week, Don Den- ney, university engineer, said Tuesday. Denney said the project, which will cos about $345,000 and will not be com- pleted until March, is designed to improve the appearance of the campus. "The project is not a money saving project," he said. "The purpose is to clean the water off the streets and beautify the campus." Although some construction has begun, Denney said traffic will not be af- fected until next week when Welch Street, from Chestnut Street to West Prairie Street, will be closed. The plan calls for further construction on Welch Street from West Prairie Street to Highland Street, on Highland Street from Welch Street to near the Willis Library and on West Prairie Street from We...

Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Wednesday, September 10, 1980 Graduation with honors Academic changes regarding graduation with honors, approved by acting Vice President for Academic Affairs Howard Smith, became effective this semester. The new changes are expected to increase academic standards at NT by increasing the number of hours used to calculate students' grade point averages. Before the changes were authorized, GPAs were based on the last 54 hours of work completed by an NT student. With the changes, GPAs for students seeking a degree under the new catalog will be based on all college work finished by the students, whether completed at NT or other universities. Students who already have begun their studies at NT have the option of remaining under the old system for GPA calculation. A student with a GPA of at least 3.5, but less than 3.8, is eligible to graduate cum laude. A student with a GPA of at least 3.8, but less tha...

Ad- mission is $1 for the dance concert in The Lyceum of the Union. The Sailaway troupe includes dancers from the metroplex who have danced professionally with companies in Fort Worth, Dallas and at Texas Christian University. The group was formed as a cooperative, not a company, so a pool of dance talent could be drawn upon for fluid performances including jazz, modern, classical ballet, show dancing and other forms, Bruce Halentine, Union Program Committees director, said. Members of the co-op describe the group as "a nuclear group of mature community dance professionals" seek- ing to expand community awareness of dance as well as to provide a performing and choreographic outlet for its members.

Wednesday, September 10, 1980 THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY-PAGE 5 Nuclear project may face hearing AUSTIN (AP) — The Public Utility Commission's chief lawyer has asked the commission to call a special hearing on cost overruns and construction delays in the South Texas Nuclear Project. John Bell asked the PUC to make a decision at Thursday's pre-hearing con- ference on Houston Lighting & Power's request for rate increases totaling $213.2 million a year. HL&P is the managing partner of the nuclear project, in which utilities in San Antonio, Austin and Corpus Christi also have invested. In its rate increase request, HL&P asks the PUC to include the project in its rate base even though customers are not getting any service from it yet. PUC staffers have recommended reducing the allowance for the nuclear project construction by 16 percent because its estimated cost exceeds a "reasonable" amount by that much. Chief counsel Bell's recommendation would eliminate the nuclear project fro...

He is 5'6" and 157 pounds, not the normal size for a college running back. Jones was the leading rusher against UT-Arlington with 72 yards in 13 car- ries. Jones, a Dallas senior, has spent all of his football career having to overcome prejudgment of his size. "In high school, I was on the B-team as a squad member. That spring I thought would be my chance to make varsity but I didn't and was on the JV team. "So I decided then to play every game as my best game. Midway through my junior year, I was moved up to varsity. We went to the championships in I975 and played Piano in the quarter finals. I took the starting kickoff for a touchdown." JONES CAME to NT on a football scholarship, that, he said, "was another funny thing." "I decided during my junior year that I w...

PAGE 8—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Wednesday, September 10, 1980 Critic pleads for 'right' sport By JERRY PRICKETT Staff Writer A lime of year is drawing near when the sports on television begin to bother me. I'm sure there are many people who say this all of the year, but the late summer and early fall is the worst time of the year to see the wrong sport get overplayed on TV. Sit down, sports fans, because the sport I'm complaining about is foot- ball. Sportscope Don't take my words in the wrong way. When the autumn air turns crisp, there is no other sport 1 would rather play, watch or write about. The point I'm trying to make is that there are games for all seasons. Summer is baseball season. The world's greatest game, baseball is meant to be played and seen during the summer. Anyone who has ever taken batting practice in temperatures below 50 degrees can easily understand that baseball is not a winter sport. The heat of the summer allows the fan the perfect excuse to lay back and enjoy...

The waiting game ap- pears to be nearing an end. The foreign relations committee of the Iranian Parliament has begun meeting to make preparations for debate on the issue, and the Parliament itself is in the process of selecting its new Cabinet, both indica- tions that Iran may be ready to resolve the hostage crisis. However, the selection of the new Cabinet has been delayed by disagreement between President Abolhas- san Bani-Sadr and Prime Minister Mohammed Ali Ra- jai on the composition of its membership. Rajai said the United States must repent its 'sins' before he will consider opening negotiations. President Carter has refused to admit any U.S. wrongdoing. Iranian hard-liners who control Parliament have said all along they would not consider the hostages' fate until the Iran's prime minister is chosen, wh...

"We don't let just anybody in the school. "But if a student has a good enough reason why he should be allowed in even though our studies show he might not be up to passing college-level classes, we can make an exception."
