The goals are outlined in a Centennial Agenda.

The North Texas Daily Tuesday, April 10, 1984 Editorials SA shoot-out • !. At high noon today, a showdown will begin that has been building for almost a month in the Student Association. The winner of the shoot-out between SA member Tom Anderson and the Rules and Elections Committee (and its former director) will be determined by the SA Supreme Court. Anderson has appealed the shotgun special election held March 7 and 8, saying polling places didn't remain open as scheduled and the ballot's wording didn't indicate the leg- islation would become a con- stitutional amendment if ap- proved. In addition, Anderson said precedents set in past elections were ignored, an election board was not established and no copies of the bill were available March 8. And he was not satisfied with director L illian German's official reprimand of herself and her committee after he submitted his protest. So. Anderson is now asking that the election be declared invalid. For more than two weeks. Anderson has...

Tuesday, April 10,1984 NT International students discuss women's roles By NARTNITTHA JIRARAYAPONG Daily Reporter Which comes first: marriage or education? According to many NT Asian students, mar- riage is not only the first goal in women's lives; it is expected and forced. Koichi Watanabe, Japan graduate student, said Japan is a male-dominant society where the status of women is low even though the Jap- anese constitution and legal codes were revised more than 30 years ago to give women more equal rights. In 1947 the constitution was revised under the fashion of the U.S. Constitiution to give women the right to vote. Sexual discrimina- tion was also forbidden. But in reality, equali- ty between the two sexes is not practiced in Japan, he said. A WOMAN IN JAPAN, Watanabe said, is expected to be married at a certain age and become a good housewife. "Even if a Japan- ese woman does not want to follow society's way, she would be forced to get married." Watanabe said Japanese women enco...

She said the previous teacher competency tests in Egypt were not effective because the results of the tests were never used to improve the teachers' level of competency. "In America, a teacher takes a competen- cy test until a certain level of competency is reached," Cochran said. "In Egypt, a test is taken only to determine the teacher's present competency level." The tests Cochran developed measure class- room control, learning difficulties, individual instruction, development and implementation of classsroom goals and subject matter preparation. She said 139,000 teachers were assessed. After their assessment, the teachers were observed by Cochran and others. She said th...

However, Americans weren't what he expected they would he, he said. "The sort of impression we have back home in Ghana is that Americans are really generous and go out of their way to help people," he said.

Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Wednesday, April 11, 1984 Editorials A small world Not many people would consider Denton, Texas, an international city. But international students are 10 percent of the student population at NT. As communication and technology grow, the countries of the world are brought closer together. Places as exotic- sounding as Malaysia, Iran, Kenya and China are no long- er just places on the globe or in travel magazines. The United States can no longer hide behind the barriers of the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. Even small Texas towns must rise from their cgoccn- tricity to recognize and accept the new international world. At an university like NT. it is especially vital that peo- ple realize the importance of international students and their cultures. Universities must set the example for the rest of the United States by demonstrating the necessity of international awareness and education. Too often, an international student becomes a quiet, voiceless...

By SARA CRAWFORD Special Writer No is supposed to mean no, but applied to sex, many men think no is a token ges- ture used by women to entice them, accord- ing to the answers given by men on many sociological reports.

The quartet was featured Tuesday as part of the Jazz Lecture Scries sponsored by the School of Music.

Walker, who is a flutist with the Los Angeles Phil- harmonic, said he chooses the pieces of classical music that Free Flight will perform.
