r u 1 i - Wednesday, February 29,1984 The North Texas Daily—Page 5 Prize winners suctliglit cultures * : Film examines Zimbabwe By TONYA McMURRAY Staff Writer The problem of South Africa is one many Americans can understand—racism. "Moving On: The Hunger for Land In Zimbabwe" traces the history of South Africa from the mid- 1800s when Europe- an explorers began to colonize the area to the present. When white European settlers began moving into Zimbabwe, they took more and more land from the black natives. Much of the land the whites took was black burial grounds, which were sacred. Soon a small minority of whites owned half of the land in Zimbabwe while the blacks, who constitute 95 percent of the population of Zimbabwe, lived on the oth- er half. The differences between the two cultures is enormous, and the film portrays these differences by examining two men and their families. Simon Chifamba is a poor black. The land that his family owns is sandy and produces just enough food to ...

"The best improvisers are ones who use their environment," he said. "We played what we played because we were a part of it. We do everything we can to bring out all our environment." Adderley spoke at the Jazz Lecture Series yesterday. Adderley and his brother Cannonball Adderley were among the leaders in con- temporary jazz in the 1960s. While the West Coast movement includ- ing Gerry Mulligan and Dave Brubeck was making money and influencing the world of jazz, New York musicians resented the success of musicians such as Brubeck and Mulligan, Adderley said.

Their playing days at NT may be their last. And playing at NT. with its fledgling base- ball program, means playing in virtual anony- mity. Ted Arkfeld, Brad Lang, Greg Bridgham and Rick Woodward, the first NT players to receive baseball scholarships, tranferred from other schools and are not used to the anony- mity.

The North Texas Daily Page 2 Thursday, March 1, 1984 Editorials The core's the problem The idea of a revival in general education is sweeping the country and NT along with it. But before the College of Arts and Sciences Core Curriculum Task Force gets too carried away it should realize one of its assumptions may contain a tragic flaw. The task force assumes many students will be able to place out of the large number of classes it wants included in the core. Since Texas is pushing tougher curriculums in public schools, and since the NT Board of Regents has just raised minimum scores for entering freshmen on standard- ized tests, the task force assumes NT will getting academically superior students able to test out of courses. But many students will not place out of courses, and will be forced to spend their college years following a formulized, rigid plan. The task force is including in its proposal core curriculum proficiencies in CSC1 110, MATH 161, ENGL 131-132. IPCO 101, 125, 225...

Lack of time is not what causes the time- management problems, he said. "People have the time, they just don't use it," he said. "If you take care of your major chores: sleeping, eating and going to class, you still have an average of 10 hours a day left over," Thurman said. One of the first things that will he...

"Surprised Edges" combines the efforts of three mem- bers of the Willis Library staff: Jan Byron, Cheryl Maples and Teri Muse. The exhibit will be on display through Tuesday. The women's works are different from one another in form, but all are creative. Most of Byron's works use what she refers to as "critters."

Although the subcommittee's resolution has yet to be adopted by the education committee, the resolution is wor- thy recognition that the tradi- tional trappings of public edu- cation—desks, chalkboards, classrooms—are not necessarily necessary to learning. Parents or guardians who wish to teach at home would have to register their children at the local public school so that the children could take standardized achievement tests.
