8 November 5, 2003 Entertainment The Rambler After long delay, Faculty Piano Recital to take place Alex Vorse STAFF WRITER In a time of campus uncertainty regarding budget cuts, visiting professors and the mission of our institu- tion, two Wesleyan professors — from separate disci- plines — have come together as friends and collaborative performers. The Division of Visual and Performing Arts will present a Faculty Piano Recital at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 11 in Martin Hall. Dr. Bruce McDonald, visiting assistant professor of philosophy and religion, holds an undergraduate degree in piano pedagogy from the University of Texas-Austin and serves as church organist for Handley United Methodist Church in Fort Worth. McDonald came to Dr. John Fisher, professor of music, last fall, excited about a Mozart sonata for two pianos. McDonald suggested they play the work for fun, and Fisher agreed, thinking it might lead to a program. McDonald said he and Fisher work well and have a lot of fun playing toge...

The Rambler Opinions November 12, 2003 3 Drugs are bad and so are cops, sometimes Last week, I was pulled over by an offi- cer of the law on Vickery just west of cam- pus. The cop's reason for doing so was to inform me that my front license plate was no longer present, and, as 1 very well knew, never had been. He didn't ticket me. In fact, he didn't even run my driver's license through the police computer to check for outstanding warrants. He was doing his job, "to protect and to serve." This is the mantra of all police forces across the nation, and it's a good motto to operate under. But where do you draw the line? When does protecting and serving becoming endangering and annoying? Last Wednesday, 14 police officers charged into a high school in Goose Creek. S.C., with drug dogs and guns drawn, to per- form a drug sweep. Several stu- dents were handcuffed and pushed around in the hallways as drug- sniffing dogs and police searched —-— student lockers and book bags. Ironically, no d...

4 November 12, 2003 Campus Life The Rambler Art House attracts high schoolers and well-known artist Sara Southerland STAFF WRITER The Wesleyan Art House had a guest artist, Gloria Enis, lead a free workshop for students attending Fort Worth high schools on Nov. 8. During "The Wesleyan Art Marathon," the students enjoyed a day of creativity and originality. According to Arlington Heights sopho- more Kelsey Lyon, the students began the day with gesture drawings and then began experimenting with different media, doing a lot of still-life work. Enis encouraged the students to use their imaginations, especially on an individual collage each student creat- ed. "I really liked the collage, [Enis] gave us suggestions, but left us a lot of room for cre- ativity," Lyon said. The students were led through many dif- ferent alleys of art throughout the day. One unique part was an interpretation of pictures on a slide to group movements. Peter Colley, professor of sculpture and ceramics, told the...

The Rambler Campus Life November 12, 2003 5 'Distinguished Toastmaster' encourages leadership, communication skills Whitney Fowler NEWS EDITOR Texas Wesleyan's Toastmaster's club — an organization that teaches communication and leadership skills — is seeking a charter to become recognized as an official chapter of Toastmasters. Charlie Coombs, Wesleyan's Toastmas- ters mentor, says that through working his way through the program to become a "Distinguished Toastmaster," he has learned leadership, teamwork, management and del- egating skills. Coombs explains that there are two tracks in Toastmasters — a communication track and a leadership track. The communi- cation track concentrates on the skills for giving speeches while the leadership track includes experience using parliamentary pro- cedure. Wesleyan's Toastmasters, which began meeting in May 2003, can become chartered if the club reaches 20 members. Coombs says. The group recently changed the time and location of their weekly m...

2 November 19, 2003 News The Rambler Jeffcoat,/roiw page 1 hope that they raise $2 million worth of permanent endowed scholarship funds over the next three to four years. The most significant resolu- tion passed by the board, according to Jeffcoat, was the construction of a new residential hall that should be available for fall 2005. "We are now turning our attention from kind of nuts-and- bolts things to the enhancement of the campus," Jeffcoat said. The construction of a new dorm is "extremely important because not only are we completely full in the residence halls right now, but we can't recruit outside of the commuting range." The new apartment-style, three-story uorm has a guaran- teed cost not to exceed $6.5 mil- lion. He said that he is also turn- ing his attention toward student services to accommodate a larg- er number of students living on campus. "We obviously have a lot to do in improving the quality of our food service," Jeffcoat said. Along with the construction of the...

The Rambler Opinions November 19, 2003 3 America drops ball in Ten Commandments case The judicial ethics panel's decision to banish the Chief Justice of Alabama's Supreme Court Roy Moore from the bench comes as a disappoint- ment and a grim reminder of the deteri- orating standards of our current justice system. How is it that an unelected federal judge should order a state judge — elected by the people of Alabama — to remove a dis- play of the Ten Command- ments from the judicial court building? After already win- ning three legal decisions in support of the Ten Command- ments prior to his election, the voters knew what kind of per- son they were choosing — Moore was even referred to as the "Ten Commandments _____ Judge" during his campaign in November 2000. Apparently the people of Alabama did not have a problem with electing a Supreme Court justice whose rigid stance for morality had always been his avid conviction. Yet because three attorneys — out of the thousands who had elect...

6 November 19, 2003 Sports The Rambler Rams begin much-awaited season with harsh 0-2 record Marc Nettles EDITOR-IN-CHIEF A lack of experience and playing time and poor free-throw shooting has left the men's basket- ball team winless thus far this season. The team's first contest came against Oklahoma Christian University at home on Nov. 11. OCU's Jarred Merrill and Sam Word proved to be too much for the Rams as they dropped the sea- son opener 94-82 to the 26th-ranked team in the nation. Merrill and the rest of the OCU squad ran out to a 26-12 lead on the 25th-ranked Wesleyan unit. Merrill connected on four shots and four free throws for 12 points in the early going to help his team earn the advantage. "We had our problems early with our transi- tions and getting matched up," said head coach Terry Waldrop in a press release. "Merrill is an outstand- ing player and really gave us problems, especially in the first half." The loss of a recovering Anthony Martin really hurt the Rams as ...

Morehouse serves as both musical and theatrical director for this student hodgepodge of fairy re-tale-ings. So why Cinderella? Morehouse answers, "She's a part of our mythology." He explains how the story has various characteristics according to the nationalities that tell it, and it's been treated in a lot of varying styles with real changes to the story. "The audience gets to see the same story examined by different perspectives," said Morehouse. An Italian version has a fairy godfather instead of godmother.

The Rambler Opinions November 26, 2003 3 A few last words before I go... As my time here at The Rambler draws nigh, I think about my stint as the Opinions editor and wonder.. .why did they give me this job? I was never qualified. Before I started here, I didn't even know what an opinion was, let alone how to edit one. Now, here I am four months later, and I can almost spell opinonion. But who will be my successor? Who has the know-how and the elbow grease to fill my small shoes? It's a question that baffles the mind, and frankly, I'm in no position or state of mind to answer that question. I had a slew of article ideas that I never got to, or that other people got to before me. And I hate them for it. So I'm going to spend the next several paragraphs giving you a "Jon's opinon- ion extravaganza." Enjoy: The one thing I will never miss about this school is the food service. I seriously think I have done irreparable dam- age to my colon and other such organs. Have you ever dry-heaved ...
