Classes move due to air conditioning failure By JERRY BOULWARE Staff Writer NT students and faculty, surprised Monday morning by a steamy Wooten Hall, sought aca- demic refuge elsewhere to escape the results of an air conditioning equipment failure. Dr. Jack Davis, vicc president for academ- ic affairs, said, "We found out early Monday morning that the air conditioning was down in Wooten Hall. According to the Physical Plant, it would take several days to repair. We were informed that it would take two to four days to fix, and possibly longer." Fred Pole, vice president for administrative affairs, said the problem should be repaired by Friday afternoon, leaving sufficient time to have the b...

•v\ ' .V,i Commen The North Texas Daily Page 2 Thursday, July 19, 1984 Editorials Restoring unity While the Democrats gather in San Francisco for the coronation ceremonies, former Vice President Walter Mondale faces a struggle to restore party unity. After a long, strenuous campaign marked by the usual contentiousness among candidates, Mondale is clearly the winner. Now is the time for him to mend fences and build coalitions. One wise coalition-building move made by Mondale is the selection of New York congresswoman Geraldine Ferraro as his running mate. Ferraro is the first woman in United States history to be picked for the vice presiden- tial slot by a major political party, and many women voters will be influenced by her selec- tion. This is evidence that Mondale, and the Democratic party, pay at least a little more than lip service to promoting women's rights. Unquestionably, this is a significant event. Other moves made recently by Mondale seem less definitive. The removal and...

Forum The North Texas Daily Page 3 Thursday, July 19, 1984 Milan / Soviet train moves on Reban/ wnh new leadership Several years ago, a Soviet joke about the "train" of the Soviet system told of Joseph Stalin, Nikita Khrushchev and Leonid Brezhnev aboard when the train stopped. Stalin ordered the crew shot, yet the train did not move. Krushchev rehabilitated the crew. Still no movement. Brezhnev pulled down the shades and said, "Now let's just pretend the train is moving." For the last years of the prolonged and immobile Brezhnev era, the depiction is apt. The accumula- tion of problems and the desire by many for the change accounted for Yuri Andropov's popularity as he ear- ly on moved about as deftly as possible within the Soviet context. However, his poor health was known in the top circles. In January 1983, I heard of it from a Soviet physician, surely a sign the secret was no more. A Radio Yerevan joke: Question: "Will Andropov sur- vive until 1984?" Answer: "Possibly, but only...

In iilKnwIs: By SHEILA ROSEN Daily Reporter "Music From North Texas" is a monthly reminder to the Metroplex of the high quality of musicianship exhib- ited at NT, Richard Dupree, director of the program, said. The program features classical musi- cians from NT and is aired at 5:30 p.m. the second Saturday of every month on WRR-FM 100.1. "As far as 1 know it's the only regu- larly scheduled radio or TV program by NT aired anywhere," Dupree said. "Anytime you show the rest of the world the kind of job you're doing, that's important." The "Music From North Texas" pro- gram began in 1975, when doctoral stu- dent Karl Miller proposed that he put together a weekly music program that was either recorded at NT or had an associa- tion with NT, Dupree said. Miller would choose tapes for the show that Dupree recorded. Miller was the director, ...

But they will find you. They will block your path or surround you. They will come out of the ground and soak your books and your body. They are THE WATER SPRINKLERS. Students walk from class to class in fear. They never know when the sprinklers will attack them, making embarrassing wet spots on their clothes. The sprinklers can ruin a term paper, an art project or a bouffant hairdo. The sprinklers are mis- aimed not only to water the grass, but also to water the sidewalks in places, thus providing a hazard for students walking on those sidewalks. The sprinklers conic on un- expectedly during the day and can wet an unsuspecting student before he has time to react. If a student is trapped by the sprinklers, he has a choicc of getting wet or waiting for that opportune moment when all the sprink...

It is claimed that the Student Association does not realize the needs of the stu- dents at NT. Whatever the case may be, that is all behind us and it is now time to plan for the fu- ture. The new admin- istration of the SA will focus its efforts directly at finding out what the students want or need. If the SA has the resources to help meet these new demands then it will do so. II not, the SA will act as an interface or lobbyist and will direct the expressed needs in the right direction and will help in whatever way possible. We have looked for some new pro- grams that will create a unity among the students and the various organizations that they represent. One such idea is a Presi- dent's Roundtable.

They are soon-to-be freshmen at NT and are here for orientation. For many orientation may be the first time to really be away from home and away from parental supervision. Some may feel lost or aban- doned and others may feel as free as a bird, out of the nest so to speak. Some recognize these stu- dents as easy prey and get their kicks by giving them incorrect information. Others see them as a source of humor like the in- nocent freshman getting sprayed in the face by a mad water fountain, the kind we've all probably had our bouts with, or the freshman going the wrong, way on one of Denton's many one way streets. Wherever you encounter them, remember they are get- ting their first impressions of the university with every- thing they see and hear. ptC**' Peace or power? ...
