Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 'It Thursday, June 21,1984 4 ^ Editorials High school diplomacy 11" you flunk, you flunk. No more passing students through school if they can't read or write. A proposal &y the House Public Education Committee would require high school seniors in Texas to pass a basic skills test in order to receive a diploma. This proposal is a small step in the right direction toward improving our public schools in Texas. At least someone in the House of Representatives realizes that there are students graduating from Texas high schools that should not be. But it's a small step, indeed. Rep. Bill Hammond, R-Dallas, proposed the measure, saying too many students are being promoted from Texas schools on the basis of seat time without mastering impor- tant skills. The proposal falls short of recommending any real chang- es in our education system. However, it will upgrade the prestige of getting a high school diploma. Until now, many students have received ...

ROTHBERG AP Political Writer NORTH OAKS, Minn. (AP)—Walter F. Mondale's mating dance, with potential vice presidential nominees is a political ritual that reflects his belief in the importance of the job as well as his-instinctive desire to reach out to interest groups. Jimmy Carter's former vice president is uniquely sensitive to Democratic Party con- stituent politics, those special interests that were a mixed blessing to his campaign dur- ing the primary ' son. That sensitivity inevitably raises the ques- tion whether much of the show taking place in Minnesota in this pre-convention period is designed more to satisfy interest groups than to find a veep. During the campaign, Mondale often promised that no one would be excluded from consideration for vice president, par- ticularly not because of race or sex. ...

The children are participating in Developmental Movement Education, the only program of its kind in the country, said Lesleigh Franklin, program director. The program teaches "movement education" to children from 1 to 10 years old, Franklin said. "We concentrate not on teaching the children how to swim as much as teaching them coordination at a young age." Franklin earned her master's degree at Purdue Uni- versity in Indiana, where she learned the technique for teaching children body movement and coordination. When Franklin came to NT last year, she said she discovered tha...

"I feel good about going in the fourth round because I didn't get a chance to impress the scouts in Chicago," Horrocks said. "I came down with bronchial pneumonia in an all-star tournament in Portsmith, Va., and lost 20 pounds and was pretty weak," Horrocks said. As a result, Horrocks did not receive an invi- tation to the professional tryouts in Chicago. As the 7-foot starting center for NT last season, Horrocks averaged 8.4 rebounds and 14.6 points a game, but was only eligible to play for the first 14 games.

After serving as regent for a year, Stockseth's appointment was approved by a Texas Senate subcommittee June 19.

I I Commentary Editorials Evil spirits? Advertising, a tradition as American as Mom, baseball and apple pie, has gotten out of hand. Every day, American television viewers are inundated with beer and wine ads that portray drinking as good ol' harmless l'un. Slick ads show robust, garrulous people hobnobbing with famous athletes, joking and having a great time as they coddle frosty steins of beer. Drinking may be fun. Used in moderation, alcohol can be perfectly harmless. But not everyone is happy with the carefree image televi- sion and radio ads have created about drinking. Dozens of national groups recently launched a cam- paign to ban beer and wine advertising on television and radio or to force those media to provide equal air time for health warnings. Project SMART—Stop Marketing Alcohol on Radio and Television -is backed by groups as diverse as the United Methodist Church, the American Medical Society and the national PrA. The groups hope to send petitions with a million signa...

Although my art expresses Christian ideology, I do not consider myself a "Christian artist." This type of la- beling, if attached to my work, would limit me as an artist.

The Board of Regents approved 16 proposals at its last meeting. The plan will go into effect this fall and is designed to enhance bicycle traffic, the shuttle bus system and pedestrian walkways. By concentrating on these areas, the committees work- ing on the plan realized that the solution to parking prob- lems is not in creating more parking spaces but to improve and expand on what already exists. The plan is designed to encourage members of the NT community to ride bicycles or the shuttle bus to campus and to walk or ride the buses once they are here. The plan is: • Establishing a bicycle path around the central campus, constructing five bicycle parking malls and prohibiting bicycle traffic on campus sidewalks; Expanding and upgrading crosswalks; Selling parking permits on an annual basis for $3...
