Office offers not so run-of-the-mill scholarships for various qualities By SHAUNA FEDRIC Daily Reporter The NT Scholarship Office offers a num- ber of unusual scholarships many students are unaware of, said Dr. Robert Detrick, director of the Scholarship Office. The competition for general academic scholarships is usually stiff. A student needs a grade point average of at least 3.0 or bet- ter for a good chance, Detrick said. The Haggar Foundation, however, offers a scholarship that does not require more than average academic performance, he said. The Ha...

She won race after race, which not only put her in the limelight of the sports world, but also caused the media to hound her to the point where she installed a separate phone line for the media. Now, at age 31, Smith still runs, and she still wins, but she is no longer the focal point of running. She said she doesn't mind. Now she can concentrate on her Olympic goals. Smith has competed in two Olympics, in 1972 and 1976, and qualified for the 1980 games in the 1,5(X)-meter run. She also runs the 3,000, which will be included in the Olympics for the first time this year. She will try to be one of three U.S. runners in the 1,500 and 3.0(H) to qualify for the Summer Games in Los Angel...

V « « « * i NT regents to discuss service fees By JERRY BOULWARE Daily Reporter The NT Hoard of Regents is sched- uled today to consider a proposed increase in student service fees, acceptance of con- struction bids and extending football Coach Corky Nelson's contract. Other topics on the agenda include two new degree plans, endowments for aca- demic positions and more shelves for the Willis Library. If approved, the proposed student ser- vice fee increase would be in effect fall 1984 and would raise fees from $4.50 a semester hour to $6 a semester hour. The maximum student service fee would in- crease from $54 to $72 for fall and spring terms and would increase from $27 to $36 for summer sessions. The Texas Legislature increased the student service fee ceiling from $60 to $90 in 1983. Currently, only one state university, UT-EI Paso, has a lower stu- d...

The North Texas Daily Page 2 Friday, February 24, 1984 r < j?, > *• ' V « y > « * ¥ Editorials Common sense President Ronald Reagan is slowly realizing the futility of his Lebanon campaign—so slowly, in fact, that the American people are about 10 steps ahead of him on every decision he makes. But this is really understandable. After all, the Ameri- can people have an unfair advantage over Reagan: they possess common sense. Common sense on Reagan's part would have resulted in the Marines being deployed to a position that would not, by the intractable rules of terrain, have left them directly under the aim of enemy guns on the nearby hillsides. Reagan now realizes that placing the Marines in the middle of an anarchistic society might not have been such a good idea. But his remedy isn't too brilliant, either. Placing 1,400 Marines on ships just offshore will not give them or the Lebanese army any more control over the situation. Leaving those ships in striking distance of well...

Every major conference in the country recruits in Texas to some extent. We have six major confer- ences represented in Texas who actively recruit in the state. In addition, several small colleges and junior colleges reap the bene- fits of Texas talent. The competition for top-notch players is fierce. It is not uncommon for as many as eight different universities to be interested in the same student athlete. The National Collegiate Athletic Association rules limit the potential student athlete to six official visits (paid by the university) to universi- ties he selects. Texas intcrscholastic league rules for high schools limit any student ath- lete still competing during the second semes-...

The lecture was de- signed to give background information on "The 1930s: A Decade of Contrasts," the current exhibit in the Art Building Art Gallery. The movies of the 1930s dealt with the reali- ties of the Depression in different ways; some provided escapism while others faced the realities. Even the escapist movies provided a posi- tive cultural role, Gleeson said. "They allowed people to leave their troubles behind for an hour or two. "The musicals are one of the gr...

Uncle Sam's lost money Experts trace trillion NEW YORK (AP>—Economists think the United States could be $1 trillion rich- er than it realizes. Economists have said that SI trillion may be missing due to miscalculations of gross national product or the total out- put of the economy. "That's a rough but conservative esti- mate," said Paul MacAvoy, dean of the University of Rochester's Graduate School of Management and a member of for- mer President Ford's Council of Economic Advisers.

,'Jln.: Page 8—The North Texas Daily Friday, February 24,1984 Missing: audience at women's basketball By DEBBIE WILLIS Staff Writer NT has a good thing going and no one knows about it. The women's basketball team has come a long way since the beginning of the season, but attendance has been so low at the games that its progress has almost gone unnoticed. Women's sports usually don't draw the crowds men's sports do, but on a cam- pus with an enrollment of 19,258, an audi- ence of 150 seems a little small. Attendance records show 175 people watched the Eagles lose to Arkansas State 56-47 Jan. 30 in the Super Pit. Only 100 people watched the McNeese State game and 120 attended the Southeast Louisi- ana game. Sportscope NT lost to Lamar 70-63 Saturday night and only 150 were there, including both benches. What happened to the other 19,108 students and the staff and facul- ty members? The "everyone loves a winner and for- gets the loser" syndrome seems to be rampant at NT. The women are ...

Youn gcr people who study the 1930s characterize that period by the wind storms of Oklahoma, soup lines of big cities and Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal legislation. The poor and those deeply affected by the stock market's crash outnumbered the affluent of the 1930s. Today, the upper and middle classes outnumber the poor and hungry.

m f < • * ' * Tuesday, February 28,1984 News Briefs Key committees draft tax increases WASHINGTON (AP>—While White House and congressional negotiators remain at a standoff on developing a strategy to stem federal deficits, key committees of the House and Senate are drafting modest tax increases to slow the borrowing skid. Senate Finance Chairman Robert J. Dole, R- Kan., called his panel back to work Monday in hopes of finishing by mid-week a package of tax boosts and budget cuts worth $100 billion to the treasury over three years. That $100 billion is the down payment sought by President Ronald Reagan in his call for a bipar- tisan agreement on the deficit issue. But Reagan, so far, has spurned any notions of substantial tax boosts, claiming there are major savings to be found in non-defense spending.

But it won't cause long-lasting pain and it won't put your life in jeopardy. It takes only an hour and can be done right here on campus. Interested? To help save lives, all you have to do is donate blood during next week's blood drive. Almost any student, faculty or staff member who is in good health, weighs at least 110 pounds and is over 18 can donate. The blood is used for a var- iety of purposes. Some of it is given as direct transfusions to victims of accidents. Some of it is used to give transfusions to patients who are undergoing kidney dialysis or other treat- ments which require large amounts of blood. Some of the blood will be used for research, which, indirectly, saves more lives than direct transfusions. Through research, doctors can find cures for blood-related diseases like leukemia and sickle cell anemia that claim the l...
