The amendment, which needed a ma- jority vote by students participating in the election to be added to the SA Con- stitution, was approved 105-36, Lillian German, SA rules and elections chair- woman, said Thursday. The new amend- ment will be used to conduct the SA gen- eral election in April. GERMAN SAID, "I'm disappointed (in the turnout), but I'm not surprised. I'm sorry about the lack of concern on the students' part, but I think it (electoral reorganization) is going to improve, in a small way, our electoral process. You need small changes before ...

■•4-ykw r. ' ?W The North Texas Daily Page 2 Friday, March 9, 1984 Editorials Is anybody there? In January, Billie Myrick, a nurse who screens calls for Dallas' Emergency Medical Service, received a call from Larry Boff who said his stepmother was ill and need- ed an ambulance. During the call, which was recorded by the Dallas Fire Department as a matter of routine and obtained by Dallas television station KDFW, Myrick insisted on talking to the woman even though Boff told her his stepmother was incoherent and could not come to the phone. Departmental procedure dictates that when a patient is unable to speak, an ambulance should be sent immediately. Myrick, however, continued to question Boff and to insist on speaking with his stepmother. Boff became upset at Myrick's questions and cursed at her. Myrick told Boff not to curse at her and threatened to hang up if he did so again. Myrick finally asked her super- visor to speak to Boff. Her supervisor, Donald Greene, admonished Boff to ...

4 I* j Forum The North Texas Daily Page 3 Friday, March 9, 1984 Tom Evenson / People's attitudes toward disabled are real handicap Burlier this week, I overheard a couple of people discussing the fact that it was "Disability Awareness Week" on campus. One of the individuals suggested that an awareness week like this really doesn't have much impact on most people. Perhaps those who were already aware become a bit more aware, but most people don't give disa- bled people any more attention than they do normally. I didn't hear the rest of the conversation, but 1 begun to wonder about the effects of having a whole week centered on disabled people. It seems unfortunate that we even have to have such a week. It serves to sep- arate disabled people from non-disabled people. It implies they are different from other people. It may even suggest they are "special" because of their disabilities. I know of no disabled person who truly wants to be recognized simply because he or she has a disabili...

The code states a quorum of four Election Board members (the Rules and Elections Committee) must he present to hear a case. However. Lillian German, rules and elections chairwoman, did not consult with the commit- tee before issuing the reprimand. A case of alleged violation of the election code must be appealed first to the Election Board and then to the SA Supreme Court, according to the election code.

Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Tuesday, March 13, 1984 Tue Editorials Praying on schools Both houses of the U.S. Congress are debating a pro- posed constitutional amendment that would allow volun- tary prayer in public schools. The amendment, introduced by Senate Majority Leader Howard Baker, R-Tenn., states that it is legal for people to assemble in public buildings that are supported com- pletely or partially by public funds to participate in non- denominational prayer. This amendment is a clear violation of the concept of sep- aration of church and state. Proponents argue that the authors of the Constitution only desired separation of church and state to ensure that no re- ligion would be adopted or en- dorsed by the government and that since the amendment would allow only non-denom- inational prayer no such endorsement would be made. A majority of Americans consider themselves, in vary- ing degrees of piety, to be Christians. Since the teacher and most of the students i...

A cloud of doubt is brewing on the S A electoral reorga- nization horizon, threatening yet another failure to pro- cure the vital electoral reorganization bill. Two protests have been filed as a result of procedural bungling of the special election last Wednesday and Thursday, and the chairwoman of the Rules and Elections Committee issued a statement Monday reprimanding herself and the commit- tee for violating the SA election code. In fact, the election code, which is not part of the SA Constitution but a flimsy guide used by the SA since 1^79, doesn't adequately cover special elections at all. Probably, the election results will stand, and this will come as a pleasant surprise to 141 concerned students who voted in the mismanaged affair.
