M • The North Texas Daily Thursday, March 15, 1984 North Texas State University, Denton, Texas 67th Year No. 90 Political scientists predict close race By DONNA ALLEY Daily Reporter NT political scientists predict a closer race between former vice president Wal- ter Mondale and Sen. Gary Hart in pri- maries after the results of Super Tuesday primaries. Dr. C. Neal Tate of the political sci- ence faculty said. "Tuesday's results show that Hart won't just blow Mondale away— it will be a closer race." He said media attention should be more evenly divided between the candidates because of the results of Tuesday's primaries. Hart showed he could do well in two sizable states by winning the Florida and Massachusetts primaries, while Mondale showed he could still win primaries after his victories in Alabama and Georgia. Dr. Jim Danielson of the political sci- ence faculty said the candidates have accomplished in the last week what was expected of them. "Hart can be classi- fied as the fron...

Neither Democrats nor Republicans were amused by Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens' attempt to tack the appropria- tions to a fuel subsidy bill designed to help the poor heat their homes through the unusually harsh winter. The administration's jungle tactics probably did more harm to future military-aid requests for the region than would a massive retreat by the Salvadoran army. But con- sidering the army's lackluster performance against leftist guerrillas, perhaps the administration had nothing to lose. Congressman have complained about the administra- tion suddenly t...

Thursday, March 15, 1984 The North Texas Daily—Page 3 News Briefs Mattox calls death humane AUSTIN (AP)—Texas' method of lethal injections for capital punishment is about as humane a technique as can be devised, the state's top lawyer said. "1 don't think there's any fair, just or proper way to execute anyone. But 1 think the process used last night was about as humane a process as could be designed." Attorney General Jim Mattox said. Mattox, who attended the midnight execution of convicted killer James David Autry, said he wanted to be present as the state's lawyer to make certain proper procedures were fol- lowed. He was the highest-ranking official to witness the execution. "I've seen death before and 1 don't think it's anything anybody really wants to sec," he said.

Pag© 4-—The North Texas Daily LIBRARY: Thursday, March 15,1984 New 'duster' concept groups departments with simitar interests to combine funds for more purchasing power KATHY GITTINGS Daily Reporter A new concept called "cluster groups" is being used to facilitate purchasing of periodicals, yearly publications and annu- al reviews by the NT library system, Ann Minton. chairman of the cluster librarians, said. MINTON SAID PRIOR to the devel- opment of the cluster groups, many prob- lems were associated with the purchase of frequently published items. "Many departments are interdiscipli- nary," Minton said "For example, health, physical education and recreation are interested in 'Sports Physiology' and 'General Biological Chemistry.' Every- thing overlaps. "Previously, each title was paid for out of the individual department's library budget," she said. "If one department cancelled a periodica) and it was not picked up by another department, it left a gap. "By putting departments with...

r f. i Editorials Raising education The recommendation by the Texas Select Committee on Public Education to raise teachers' salaries is one step in raising the standards of the Texas school system. Although some of the committee's suggestions would not benefit public schools, its suggestion to add $410 a month to teachers' salaries is necessary to revitalize Texas' stagnant schools. People loudly complain about public education, but when it comes time to make improvements by increasing funding, they become quiet. 1,.., shouldn't be shocked to learn that poor salaries attract poor teachers. Along with raising salaries, the committee suggested the creation of a "career ladder" for teachers. Under the current system, teachers remain in the same position for their entire career. In any field, employees should have some idea of how further education and experience can improve their careers. Part of the problems in the teach- ing profession are caused because teachers have little chance f...

As a result, he said, the Lamar Cardinals may drop out of the Southland Conference. What makes Foster feel so despised is that the Cardinals, who won the SLC regular-season champi- onship with an 11-1 conference record, were not invit- ed to the National Collegiate Athletic Association basketball tournament. Lamar had an overall record of 25-4. The Cardi- nals were not ranked in the top 20 in wire service polls, but Sports Illustrated ranked them No. 17.

Neal Tate, chair- man of the political science department, said Monday. Unofficial returns indicated Monday that moderate Jose Napoleon Duarte was leading the election, but he appeared likely to face a runoff with right-wing candi- date Roberto d'Aubuisson. "If either Duarte or d'Aubuisson end up in the leading position," Tate said, "1 don't think that it will lead to much change in EI Salvador, nor will it have much impact on the rebels." However, Tate said, the election may help the Salvadoran government eventu- ally develop into a democracy. "If the country is able to put down the rebels in the lo...

Commentary 4 f i The North Texas Daily j i Page 2 Tuesday, March 27, 1984 Editorials Water, water Water, water everywhere. . . The inevitable growth of Denton and the inevitable fear of Denton City Council members that the city will be swallowed by Dallas has created a delicate problem con- cerning annexation and water services to annexed properties. To prevent Denton from drowning in Dallas' growth, the city has tried to annex land that will provide corridors through which Denton can grow, primarily land along Interstates 35W and 35E. Such foresight should be applauded. However, the annexation policy has created a swell ot controversy over water service to the annexed property. Currently, the city does not pay to extend city water lines to property, but requires developers to pay for the installa- tion of water lines. Revenues from water and sewer charg- es fund the operation of the water treatment plant, not the installation of water and sewer lines. The reason for this policy, th...

About 260,000 Texas schoolchildren, speaking 101 languages, lack the English skills to thrive. Many educators hope the results could lead to a change in state law that requires public schools to instruct students in their native language before switching to English.
