g^^September^8^005^he^Jniversity^ Commentary Fellowship and Authorship: Slimmer at the Library by Kate Wolfe CONTRIBUTING WRITER Hie Adolphine Fletcher Terry Public Library on Napa Valley Drive in Little Rock, Arkansas, moves more books for its size than any other branch of the Central Arkansas Library System (CALS). Terry Pub sees everyone, from the loud sticky kids to the careful old ones with methodically nipped scraps of newspaper from the Sunday "Book" section of th & Arkansas Democrat Gazette. I dread the sight of their falling faces when they realize the meager Large Print collection has, again, not yet been rotated from the other branches. Meanwhile, the kids are running around screaming with delight at their "goodie" bags from Summer Reading Club, even when they realize the goods are actually bookmarks and a schedule. As a circulation librarian, I know my patrons by their books and their wallets. A copy of one of our smart-sus- penseful-big-city-lawyer-with-a-mission bo...

But he perfected his English and earned a Ph.D. in Physics to teach at the new university. Fr. Ralph, a well-known face on campus today, taught languages, art, music, and stand-up comedy. In 1958 the monastery's first wing was built, and in 1963 the Cistercian Prep School was established. Despite their own struggles to stabilize the Prep School, the monks continued to be an integral part of I'D, supplyin...

3 September 28, 2005 The University News The University News September 28, 2005 Q Features by Meg Furey FEATURES EDITOR Not too long ago, I sat with a friend. It was a summer evening, hot and balmy. The beginning of school lin- gered somewhere in the ten days that would follow. I wasn't thinking of school, not really as we sat at Starbuck's, unfashionabiy abstaining from coffee and engaging in minimal conversation, in a kind of comfort that friends all too often never achieve. A laptop sat in front of us; we stared at it. PostSecret.com was the website that had us spellbound in silence. Now, I myself, am not one to surf the web. No, truth is, spending mindless hours staring into a computer screen bores me. I realize that the internet has much to offer, but I find that like a buffet, there is too much, too many choices, and I don't know where to start. Couldn't even dream of what I would want to look up besides occasional movie reviews. Blogs and tell-all websites do very little to a...

]_Q September 28, 2005 The University News Features o .v\\ nformer a short story by Scott Laveriok I n the town of Blacksfield, Wyoming, information is a hot commodity. In fact, there is only one source for it: The Informer. B ut the people still couldn't read, and they seldom understood his lectures. Fourty-four years ago, Blacksfield was a small farm-town with no business and no money. The people were diligent and hard working but uneducated. Year after year they sought for a scholar to educate their people. First was a philosopher. He sought to integrate their work with the teachings of the ancient philosophers. They would think and listen as they worked. He dove quickly and deeply, but his thoughts were too vast for the small minds of the farmers, and his words much too hard to grasp. He soon left, disappointed and discouraged. Next was a writer, who designed text after text for the people. He wrote different primers for different people and brought book after book for them to r...

The University News September 28, 2005 \ j_ Arts & Entertainment lew year brings new faces to IID theater by Sharon Salmon A&E EDITOR The University of Dallas Theatre has been busy this month casting its main stage production, as well as the first Senior Studios. Presented in association with the university Department of Modern Languages and the Goethe Center, an English adaptation of Friedrich Schiller's Love and Intrigue will premiere Nov 2 at the Margaret Johnson Theater. According to a press release, this "tragedy of romantic passion and political conspiracy" weaves a tale about the star-crossed lovers Ferdinand and Louisa (played by sophomores Parker Hornsby and Christine Murphy) and the difficulties that Prime Minister Von Walter (senior John Friedl), Baron von Kalb (senior Charles Cowen), Worm (freshman Paul Arebalo) and Lady Milford (Rose White) present with their political plots. The lovers are supported by junior Diana Gonzalez and IPS doctoral student Joseph Bisse...

12 September 28, 2005 The University News Arts & Entertainment orpse Bride nil o life, Flightplan flies off course by FS MOVI; REVIEWER There's a wonderfully gruesome charm to Tim Burton's Corpse Bride (wide release) which, like the directors The Nightmare Before Christmas, uses state-of-the-art stop-motion animation to tell a tale both bizarre and oddly sweet. The plot centers on a nervous young man (voiced by Johnny Depp) who's scheduled to marry the daughter of snobbish but impecunious aristocrats. He accidentally puts the ring onto what appears to be a tree branch, but turns out to be the bony figure of a cadaver (Helena Bonham Carter) buried in a wedding gown. Soon she takes the fellow to the underworld, intending that this new marriage will last. He, on the other hand, wants to return to the land of the living and his original bride-to-be. The visuals here are terrific, with some of the images so lovingly reminiscent of the German expressionism of the silent era that they ...

The University News September 28, 2005 ]_3 Sports Day ob proves bene icial for Shaq by Robert I Iartle SPORTS EDITOR After assessing sports within the movie world, I came across a more direct correlation between sports and the arts, that is: Miami Heat center Shaquille O'Neal. No other athlete has been as equally dominant on the court and in the studio as the man affectionately nicknamed "Diesel." Shaquille O'Neal: Shaq jumped into the music biz almost immediately after being drafted by the Orlando Magic in the 1992- 93 NBA draft. His first album was a warning to his critics that he's in the league and the rap game for the long haul; in other words he has "Diesel Power." Then in 1996, lightning struck again when Shaq released what is likely his most complex album to date: You can't stop the Reign. Shaq uses this album as a vehicle to express the struggle going on within between being a "playa" and a sensitive giant just looking for the right girl who will understand him. Though the ...

14 September 28, 2005 The University News Sports MLB POST-STEROIDS; Quality of sport returns, loses super- human quantities by Alan Sewaris CONTRIBUTING WRITER Fitter, happier, more productive: these are the words that best describe the numbers that baseball players posted between the years of 1998 and 2004. Between 1961 and 1998, not one player ever exceeded 60 homeruns in a season. Then, in an efficiency explosion, that feat was accomplished six times in a span of three years. I remember being in ninth grade, watching Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire's homerun chase and feeling so excited that I was witnessing history that would stand for many years to come. Little did I know that three years later, I would be sitting in Minute Maid Park watching Barry Bonds hit homerun number 70 and tie the record. While the crowd erupted, cheering for the opposing player, I sat in disbelief that the record I thought was so sacred was going to be beaten so quickly. How could so many guys be hitting so...

The University News September 28, 2005 Sports Without a football team, U. Dallas remains a home for air weather fans, fundamentally by Robert Hartle & Nick Lockridge COLLABORATORS ^ After reading last week's article on "Fairweather Fans", and someone raising the question, why college foot- ball is so popular within the American sports arena, I contemplated on whether or not, as a UD student and avid college football fan, I was a fair-weather fan. Most of us students chose to attend UD mainly for the exceptional liberal arts program it has to offer. However there's really not much, as far as the athletic program goes, that UD has to offer comparable to a highly competitive division I university. N ot taking anything away from our fel- low UD student- athletes, but having a sta- dium seating 90,000, plus screaming fans along with a marching band playing the school fight song and cheerieading squads per- forming aerial stunts that can fascinate even the likes of John Rueda, is defi...

2 October 5, 2005 The University News News News m brief Repairs to Braniff Tower stairs continue Despite the hurricane warnings and heat, repairs for the tower stairs were not put on hold. Repairs began about two weeks ago and will take another 6-10 weeks to finish, Doyle Phillips, UD Construction Lead, said. ''We're repairing the landings that are cracked and coming loose, and some of the places that are rusted out," he said. "It's gotten to the stage where it's unsafe to even use the interior." The tower is a signifi- cant part of the campus, and will not be silenced during the renovation. "It is like the pulse of the campus. They asked me to turn off the bells if they were bothering me, and I said 'no way, no way'," Doyle said. The tower is not the only structure needing repairs or renovation at UD.

"The impact of Don Quijote on the imaginations of peoples from all over the world is incalculable - not only people from Western Europe and not only well-known writers and artists and musicians, but ordinary people from all walks of life and just about every country in the world," Dr. Elizabeth Sanchez, UD modern languages professor, said in her opening remarks. She continued, "Don Quijote has the distinction of being the most published and translated book after the Bible." "In 2002, it was voted the "best book" of all times by a group of 100 prominent writers hailing from 54 different countries," she said. Dr. Hazel Carzola, retired UD modern lang...

6 October 5, 2005 The University News Arts & Entertainment AT THE DMA bv Sharon Salmon A&E EDITOR The Dallas Museum of Art is featuring tradition-based African artist Olowe of Ise's works in an exhibit titled Variations on a Theme: Three "Olumeye" by Olowe of Ise until Jan. 15, 2006. An olumeye is a sculpture that depicts a woman kneeling by a bowl. This subject matter is common in African art, but Olowe is known for advancing the traditional art form through both his technical and carving abilities. He sculpted for the Yoruba kings in Nigeria until he died in 1938, and is recognized as one of best Yoruba artists. According to a press release, the exhibit aims to set Olowe apart from other African artists. To achieve that aim, the DMA has placed a conventional olumeye by another Yoruba sculptor, Agbonbiofe of Efon-Alaiye, in the exhibit for comparison. The exhibit also wishes to clarify the popular fallacy that all African art is anonymous. "The Variations on a Theme exhibit...

But perhaps the trendy, pop-cultural student savors a more edgy atmosphere. Throughout history artists have shocked, revolted and erotically-aroused viewers.

By the week's end, "it's for the kids," bore an actual meaning for us all. It wasn't a cliche, not a buzz phrase students dropped to get out of class. And it definitely wasn't because we paid event admission fees, bought two dollar beers, or signed up for a tuck-in. Monday morning shined brightly, the heat nothing less than satanic. Walking, halfsleeping, halfdreaming and not wanting to go to school, most everyone could use a break even though, in reality, school has only been in session for a month, just beyond the PDK and right before Gorman a blue box sits. Shrieks and screams, giggles, and "no...

This is the most talked about, most prepared for event. It's the shining star. It was an opportunity to reveal that inner rock star, the one that has weekly sole appearances on the back door full length mirrors and accompanied by a selection of downloaded itunes that blare from crackling computer speakers. Thrift store costumes, air guitars, and knee drums. Pay an entrance fee and a vote, enjoy a two dollar beverage, and seemingly, you are in for a night of gut busting laughter all at the expense of your brave friends. Ninja Rap or a Michael Jackson medley, it's not just for your idle Monday night pleasure. No, "it's for the kids."

]_Q October 5, 2005 The University News Features continued from page 9 The week's running event is the jail. Students spent money that could otherwise be spent on cigarettes to jail their friends and professors. The jailers, namely seniors sweaty with the satisfaction brought on by being allowed to chase down fellow students prowl the mall. They drag students into the big blue box. Crafted by Hampton Frost and ran by the beautifully bespectacled and mustachioed Kate Wolfe and Jen Hoitsma, the jail was the source of much entertainment for the week. Dr. Waterman-Ward and her eager students, flanked by sweet and sprightly daughters, is a mall favorite. Dr. Hanssen to the surprise of us all made her way through the bars, yet again. Senior Jail coordinator, Kate Wolfe, remarked on the success of this year's jail, "We made over $6000 dollars, which is about $1000 more than years past, but we also spent about that much on the jail itself, so I guess we evened out. Oh well, it was great any...
