Budget reductions would force NT to cut employees Kditor's note: This is the first in u two-part series on NT's biennial budget requests and predicted effects of budget reductions. By KAREN BAI L Staff Writer A new aspect of state budget proposals re- quires state institutions to estimate what ef- fects a 10 percent cut in current state ap- propriations would have. A summary on effects of reduced funding, submitted last month to the Legislative Budget Board and the Governor's Budget and Plan- ning Office, stated NT would experience per- sonnel cuts by as much as 25 percent and the discontinuance of programs.

Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Friday, October 10, 1980 Editorials NOW boycott ruling From time to time, the Supreme Court acts with such decisivenss and logic, that its other, less com- prehensible reasonings are set apart in their own mire of confusion. Such was the case earlier this week when the high court refused to declare illegal a boycott against those states that have not ratified the Equal Rights Amendment. States that have not ratified the amendment are Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Il- linois, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Utah and Virginia. Without taking time to comment on the case, the court effectively ruled the National Organization for Women did not violate federal antitrust laws by urging other groups not to hold conventions or meetings in those states. Missouri filed suit against NOW in 1978 after that state began feeling the financial impact of the boycott. Previously two lower courts...

PAGE 4—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Friday, October 10, 1980 Fire official's tips urge home safety By KIM HERLT Daily Reporter Home fire safety is of vital importance because 78 percent of fire deaths occur in residential areas, Bob Hagemann, Denton fire marshall, said Tuesday. This week marks the 69th Fire Preven- tion Week in the United States and Canada. "Whether in a dorm or apartment, fire strikes nearly 800,000 residents a year," Hagemann said. Fire Prevention Week was established in 1911. The Chicago Fire in 1871 that killed 250 people and destroyed 17,430 buildings was the cause for beginning fire awareness weeks, Hagemann said. Hagemann said 12,000 people die each year as a result of fires. Most of them, he said, died of smoke inhalation. "Most people are found dead by their bed. They smelled smoke, raised up out of bed and breathed the air," Hagemann said. "The best thing we can tell them is to get low on the floor and clear out. If their clothes catch on fire, we tell them to dr...

Friday, October 10, 1980 THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY-PAGE 5 • t >• Deaf man awaits decision 15 years CHICAGO (AP)—For 15 years Donald Lang has been trapped in a legal maze of courtrooms, jails and psy- chiatric facilities. Never in that time has he uttered a word to indicate he knows his future is at stake. He can't. A 35-year-old deaf with limited sign language training, rejected by the public schools, Lang cannot speak or communicate effectively. But Lang's advocates will soon learn whether he will stand trial on charges of murdering a prostitute in 1971, because Circuit Judge Joseph Schneider is ex- pected to rule on the issue within a few weeks. The subject of a book and a television movie, "Dummy," Lang has already waited most of his adult years for lawyers, doctors and judges to decide about his life. He was first charged in the 1965 stab- bing death of a prostitute, but the case was dismissed in 1971 because of ques- tions about his competency, because some witnesses were dead, ...

The historic and controversial procedure was carried out in Israel and Italy by Dr. Martin J. Cline. It was met with official concern that he was moving too quickly from the animal experiments that won scientific praise in April. The results of the procedure were reportedly inconclusive. After three months there was no indication the new genes, inserted into defective cells of the patients' bone marrow, were producing normal blood cells. Both patients were reported alive and doing well, although the treatment ap- parently had no effect on the disease, called beta thala...

NT volleyball coach Vicky Guy said she thinks her team will have to play harder than usual to win the tourna- ment. "This is a real strong tournament. I think we will have to play a little better if we're going to be competitive. Our players are mentally ready and if we can play consistent we will have a good tour- nament. We seem to play better against the tougher teams," Ms. Guy said. NT will be matched in the pool with Southwest Missouri, Purdue and Texas A&M.

r Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Tuesday, October 14, 1980 Editorials Nepotism in the SA The Student Association severely damaged its credibility when it approved the appointment of Mike Player, director of rules and elections and SA President Steve Player's brother, as vice president. A Vice Presidential Search and Steering Committee recommended Mike Player to Steve Player as its choice. The committee interviewed seven applicants and then recommended Mike Player based on his stu- dent government experience, communication skills and knowledge of the SA and the NT administration. Steve Player attended committee meetings during which the committee discussed applicants, but he said he did not participate in the discussions. Although Steve Player may not have participated, his presence during the discussions could have influenced what committee members would have said. The committee apparently did not make its choice based on who was the best-qualified candidate, rather on who ...

One company MCI Communications, which serves Denton, maintains it can save customers 30 to 60 percent on their long-distance bills. "We bypass AT&T (American Telephone and Telegraph Co.) lines and go directly into our own network," Den- nie Payne, MCI sales representative in Dallas, said. "MCI USES advanced technology. We have a network of microwave towers about 20 miles apart," Ms. Payne said. Joe McNamara, district staff manager for Southwestern Bell, said, "MCI deals only with long distance service. They only deal with high density areas so their unit cost per call is lower. We don't think this is fair to ...

ih Tuesday, October 14, 1980 Order bars aliens from class Undocumented children to stay out of Brownsville schools BROWNSVILLE (AP) — Brownsville public school officials began refusing Monday to enroll children of illegal aliens under provisions of a temporary restraining order from a federal judge. U.S. District Judge Filemon Vela granted the 10-day stay Friday after the district pleaded it could not handle the additional pupils in its crowded classrooms. A Houston federal judge ordered Texas to provide free public education to all residents regardless of their immigration status. The Brownsville Independent School District has enrolled 557 children of undocumented aliens since Oct. 2, when U.S. Supreme Court Justice Lewis Powell refused to waive the Houston Judge's ruling for the district. But Powell said the district could seek a stay from the order in the appropriate local court. The Brownsville district apparently is the first in the state to apply and receive a temporary ex- e...

"Mainly, this game promotes good relationships with past players," said Richard Lowe, soccer coach. "It's good to see these guys come back, since they had it so tough when they organized the soccer club." Buddy Baker, former NT All-American midfielder said,"This game is just for fun. We only have about four players in shape, and a couple of our bet- ter players couldn't make the game." 1 he team of former NT players included: Baker; Scott Baker, assistant soccer coach and a former two-year letterman; Barrie Gillespie; Pat York; and lseed Khoury, who holds the NT single game scoring record of seven goals.

BIRD Special Writer TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa University quarterback Kenny Jackson hit flanker Paul Johns with a touchdown pass on fourth and 15 from the NT 20-yard line with six seconds remaining in the game to give the Hurricanes a 28-27 come- from-behind victory over NT. Tulsa head coach John Cooper said, "This was the greatest comeback that I've been involved in in a long time. Our guys never gave up." TULSA DROVE 92 yards for the win- ning score after receiving a Whit Smith punt at its own 8-yard line. NT head coach Jerry Moore said the worst thing about the winning drive was Tulsa had no timeouts remaining when they began the march. "We did not tackle them once in-bounds," Moore said. "It was a combination of good pass- ing and poor coverage in our team on that last drive," Moore said. During the final drive, on second and three from the NT 31, Jackson passed to Johns over the middle....

Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Wednesday, October 15, 1980 Editorials Crime law needs revision Attorney General Mark White said last week the U.S. Supreme Court may order Texas to compensate illegal aliens who are victims of crime, just as it ordered Texas to admit their children to public schools. White testified during a hearing held by the Senate Subcommittee on Consumer Affairs and a House subcommittee. The subcommittees are con- sidering proposals to amend the Crime Compensations Act of 1979. The law requires that $10 to $15 of court costs be paid to victims of violent crimes to cover their hospital bills, lost wages or funeral expenses. Herb Harris, chairman of the Industrial Accident Board, said no benefits were paid to illegal aliens. However, he said staff rejection of claims by il- legal aliens were challenged by attorneys who indicate they will test the issue in court. White said, "Possibly the courts might compel payment." The attorneys should challenge the boar...
