8 February 4, 2004 Entertainment The Rambler Musicians prepare to perform for president Danny Chism STAFF WRITER The President's Honors Concert will be presented at 8 p.m. Feb. 16 in Martin Hall, at the southwest cor- ner of the university. Some of you may be wondering, "What is the President's Honor Concert?" The concert - as the name implies - is in honor of Jeffcoat, but it means much more than that, music faculty and students say. According to assistant professor of music Tim Ishii, the event is "not only a great opportunity to thank our president for all that he has done for our school. It is also a great opportu- nity for the music students of Texas Wesleyan to showcase their musical talents." "The President's Honors Concert is also an opportunity for the Texas Wesleyan music depart- ment to reach out into the Fort Worth Arts community," Ishii added. For the past few months, Wesleyan music majors have been preparing for the show. Student musicians say they can't wait to share ...

The Rambler Campus survey shows majority of students satisfied with education at Wesleyan Eighty-four percent of Wesleyan students claim that they are receiving a high-quali- ty education from Texas Wesleyan University. The statistic is the result of a survey administered to 108 students conducted by 12 mem- bers of a news reporting class in November. "The educational experi- ence here has been excellent for the year and a half I have attended school here," stated a junior Wesleyan student major- ing in psychology. Students of all classifica- tions and majors from each school of the university ranked the quality of education they feel they are receiving on a scale of one to five, with five signifying the best possible rat- ing. While 29 students gave the quality of education a perfect five, 43 students thought the quality deserved a four and only two students rated the quality as a one. "Wesleyan gives...

For students who have spent much time in the library, chances are that Andy Baker has helped them. The complete silence of the library on campus is broken between 15 and 25 times a day by Baker. That is about how many students come to him every day for help. The Mid- western State graduate used to work at the Fort Worth Central Public Library downtown. "There I talked to about 120 people a day on average. The most in one day was 161 peo- ple," Baker said. But Baker says he enjoys working at Wesleyan more than at the public library because of Andy Baker the "high caliber the library, of students" and it's less work. He recalls that the public library was under- staffed, and that the employees it did have were overworked. He says, "The stress was very difficult to handle. I wouldn't be the libraria...

Simons, who stands with his hands on his hips and his head bowed in contemplation. Simons is preparing to conduct a rehearsal session of Wesleyan's produc- tion of The Messiah. The photo could have been taken this year, but it is 30 years old. In preparing for that rehearsal session and his future career at Wesleyan, Simons graduated with a bachelor of arts from the State College of Iowa in 1962 and earned his master of music education from the University of Northern Colorado in 1965. In 1984, Simons obtained his doctorate from North Texas State University. Simons said that he began teaching at Wesleyan in the fall of 1968, joking, "I was 15 at the time." Simons says that his moth- er was the inspiration for his love of music and singing. He says that he first beca...

6 February 11, 2004 Sports The Rambler Lady Rams ready to test youth in season opener Marc Nettles EDITOR-IN-CHIEF Head softball coach David Barrientes said he has "a lot to be excited about this season." Once again, Barrientes has a relatively young team for the 2004 season. The 16-athlete roster lists six freshmen, six sophomores and only one sen- ior. While Barrientes admits the team's youth and inexperience at the college level may create its issues throughout the season, he also acknowledges the team's talent, skill and intelli- gence. "I'm sure we will have some growing pains that we will have to fight through," Barrientes said, "but I am very excited to see how this group responds to this challenge." The young squad has an "excellent core of players" that possesses "a tremendous amount of skill," said Barrientes. According to Barrientes, the factor that separates this year's squad from others is the team's intelligence. "They are a very smart group.. .they learn from their mi...

2 February 18, 2004 — News 10 A:;? The Rambler Mortar Board tapping along, soon to induct new members Whitney Fowler NEWS EDITOR Thirty-one Wesleyan juniors will be "tapped" the week of Feb. 23-26, initiating these students into Wesleyan's senior honor society as the newest members of Mortar Board. According to Ashley Milligan, membership chair of Mortar Board, tapping is a tradition that honors the new inductees with a surprise visit into the chosen student's classroom by a Mortar Board member, who presents a scroll to the new member with the national gesture, tapping the student's shoulder. "It seems overwhelming at first, but it's a great honor," said Milligan, who was inducted in spring 2003. Mortar Board, a National College Senior Honor Society, is an organization that emphasizes schol- arship, leadership and service. Last year members of Wesleyan's chapter participated in the reading program for the children of the Masonic Home and School, providing snacks each week, and took ...

4 February 18, 2004 Campus Life The Rambler McDonald: A favorite on campus It is 9:25 a.m. on a Thursday, and Dr. Bruce McDonald, visiting Wesleyan assistant professor of phi- losophy and religion, walks briskly into his humanities class. McDonald places a thermos of piping hot British Yorkshire Gold tea on the nearby piano, takes a seat and engages his students by telling a couple of quick, one-lin- ers. While some students may not appreciate the beauty of McDonald's goofy puns, they are inspiring nonetheless. Inspiring, because early last year, Dr. McDonald almost died. McDonald wears a solemn expression as he describes his sudden ill- ness. "January twenty- ninth is when the bottom fell out of everything," said McDonald. "I start- ed getting sick, and I thought it was from my migraine problems/' said McDonald. McDonald says that he felt a little foolish while dialing 9- 1 -1, but soon found out that it was the wisest thing he ever did. Dr. McDonald says that when he arrived at Ha...

The Rambler Campus Life February 18, 2004 5 Fashion for spring: you decide What's light blue, yellow, and pink all over? Obviously what's in store for many individuals' wardrobes this spring. Personally, I think it's revolting, but its what's on the market. Take Wet Seal for instance. A juniors' clothing store in the mall that usually sells a wide variety of clothing. When you walk into the store anytime soon, your eyes will hardly be able to take the stampede of baby blues, pinks and yellows. Flowers over- whelm the vision, and a feeling rem- nant of Easter runs back and forth through your mind. So basically, screw what they say fashion is, I'll tell you how it's done. Wild colors. Bright patterns. Vintage. Gaudy jewelry. It was all too short-lived, and it's time to reminisce. Step into an Agaci Too, Forever 21 or Windsor, and you'll see that these fashion gurus haven't lost their touch. Striped patterns of black and neon green, turquoise, hot pink, bright purple and neon yellows a...

I The Rambler February 18, 2004 7 Morehouse aia,d Fisher teach a\A,d play -poet's Love Alex Vorse ENTERTAINMENT EDITOR Dale Morehouse, assistant professor of music, and professor of music Dr. John Fisher join forces to present Robert Schumann's song cycle Dichterliebe (German for "poet's love"), with Morehouse singing baritone and Fisher accompanying on piano. This free lecture recital is a chance for the Wesleyan community to hear high-caliber performances and learn more about the life and music of Schumann. "I've been around Schumann most of my life," said Fisher, who explained how Schumann began his prolific career as a con- cert pianist. In fact, the composer's first 23 published works were written for solo piano. But after a slow finger on Schumann's right hand was further injured, the composer began publishing pieces for other instru- ments and combinations of musical textures, says Fisher. "Dichterliebe was one, if not the most important and famous, set of songs written in ...

8 February 18, 2004 Entertainment The Rambler Art Department loses SPACE BUT PRESERVES HOPE Art, it comes in all shapes, forms and fashions. Art is emotion - love, anger, pas- sion and fear - that is painted on canvases, carved in sculptures, sewn into garments and developed into photographs. Art in oil, acrylic, clay and bronze galva- nize the walls and halls of homes and gal- leries around the world. Crayon and chalk drawings are displayed proudly on refrigera- tors and office corkboards as sentimental originals created by the smallest and most delicate of hands. All are displayed proudly for anyone who is willing to see and appreciate them. But art without view- ers is like a melody to the deaf and literature to the illiterate. Concealed art disregards talent, mutes freedom of expression and displays lack of support and tolerance. Students in the Texas Wesleyan Art Department have no permanent home in which to hang and unveil their expressive creations. The fate of their work rem...
