State declines to press nepotism charges By JERRY BOULWARE Staff Writer Allegations of nepotism involving Tex- as College of Osteopathic Medicine Presi- dent Ralph Willard will not result in any legal actions against Willard or TCOM, State Auditor George McNiel said lues- day. The issue was brought up earlier this year by McNiel, who listed TCOM among state "problem agencies" during a pre- sentation before the Legislative Audit Committee, which oversees his work. McNIEL SAID, "At the last meeting of the legislative Audit Committee, I was asked if we had any problems. We not- ed his (Willard's) wife worked at TCOM, where her husband is president. We thought it might be bending the nepo- tism rule." Dr. Margaret Dennis, Willard's wife, is currently on the TCOM payroll, but will no longer be on that payroll Sept. 1, Dr. A1 Hurley, chancellor of NT and TCOM, said. Hurley said Dennis has been selected to be director of special projects for the Federation of North Texas Universities, an o...

omnie The North Texas Dally : •> * Page 2 Thursday, August 9, 1984 / Editorials Funds or abortion President Reagan is showing his tendency to forsake common sense and go for votes once again. Reagan has threatened to cut off U.S. aid to interna- tional agencies and governments that support or subsidize abortions. This will not only stop the money from fund- ing abortions, but it will also cut off all money—even funds for other types of birth control—from those organi- zations. Although world population growth has fallen from an annual rate of 2 percent in 1974 to the current annual rate of 1.7 percent, the World Bank predicts that by 2025 the planet's population will be 8.3 billion at the present rate of growth. The Third World will be forced to sustain 7 billion people by that time, if present trends continue. Much of Reagan's support on this issue comes from people who grew up during a time when the specter of overpopulation did not appear to exist. These people abhor the idea ...

As expected, this has been a record freshman orientation, indicative of the antici- pated record fall enrollment. That's good news, of course, but our stead- ily increasing enrollment does create some challenges. The larger NT becomes, the harder it is to retain the atmosphere of f riend- liness which has characterized our campus in the past, and the more difficult it becomes for administra- tors, faculty, and staff members to provide that individual attention which is so necessary to each student's successful as- similation into university life. To combat the tendency toward impersonalization and in an effort to provide the "human touch" which is criti- cal to retaining students s...

Birds of a feather Woman raises and sells exotic peafowl as hobby By DAWN CRAMER DENTON (AP)—The unpretentious house nestled in the trees on the highway between Denton and Deca- tur doesn't attract much attention, except occasionally when a Sunday-driving city slicker fantasizes about how nice it would be to live the idyllic country life. But in the summer, Pearl Pitts causes some sec- ond looks when she puts out her sign advertising "Peafowl for Sale." "It's my hobby," said Pitts, 73, who's been rais- ing the exotic birds for 10 years. "I sell some, too. A lot of people passing by see the sign and stop." Most of the buyers are co...

Weller, who studied music and drama at NT, plays the neurosurgeon/scientist/adventurer and rock musician Buckaroo Banzai. The movie, also starring John Lithgow and Jeff Goldbium, is described as a futuristic western about a war between evil red aliens and g<xxl black aliens. An army of red aliens escapes from a prison on their homeland of the Eighth dimension, and descend upon Earth disguised as human beings. Buckaroo, along with his fleet of black aliens, must defeat the red aliens and their leader John Whorfin, played by Lithgow. If Buckaroo's army is not successful, the earth will be destroy...

Sports The North Texas Daily Page 6 Thursday, August 9, 1984 TV or not TV Progress of conference contract negotiations stagnates By PEPPER HASTINGS Daily Reporter Does anyone know exactly what is going on with the Southland Conference television contract nego- tiations? The recent Supreme Court ruling which nullified the National Collegiate Athletic Association's tele- vision contracts with CBS, ABC, ESPN and WTBS has left conference and school officials scrambling to cover their own financial interests. Recent inquiries into the progress of the confer- ence TV packages have resulted in a reporter's nightmare. Questions are answered with questions. More questions are answered with more questions. Any answers that are given are questioned. The most accurate quote I've extracted so far came from Premier Productions President A1 Tanksley, who confidently summed up his company's chances of landing the conference contract. "We are as frustrated as everyone else," Tanksley said. That pret...

NT Chief of Police Martin said, "We know that any change might not have unanimous approval, but we feel the changes we've made will serve the majority of students, faculty and staff the best." Registration for vehicles is free, and regis- tered vehicles arc allowed to park at Fouts Field or at on-campus metered parking. "This is necessary so we can identify vehicles, and hold the owners responsible for violations," he said. The price of the permits for faculty, staff, commuters and residence halls cost $35 a year. If the permit is purchased in...

■ I ; v V Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Thursday, August 16, 1984 Editorials Catalog confusion The 1984-85 NT General Catalog should be a revered book for freshmen and transfer students, but it is just one more confusing factor for students to deal with. The catalog should have information that anyone, espe- cially students, can understand. But students need an adviser, and a darn good one, to figure out what courses to take for their degree and the number of hours it will take to obtain a degree. It shouldn't be that hard. Sure, some advising for a degree program is necessary. But when students are confused because they think the place to take a public relations class is in the interperson- al and public communication division instead of the Jour- nalism Department, something's amiss. Advising students on the classes they should take is a necessary ingredient in the orientation process because a degree plan is an intricate puzzle that must be put togeth- er just right for...

" The logical result of everything that the Reagan administration is doing in Cen- tral America leads inexorably to the involvement of U.S. combat troops in that region and the outbreak of a region- al war," said Robert E. White. White, a career foreign service offi- cer who was the U.S. envoy to El Salva- dor immediately before Reagan took office, said problems in El Salvador and other Central American nations require political, economic and social answers, not military force.

Khoo hopes that strengthening the club in the upcoming school year will achieve such recognition. The club has more than 30 members and Khoo said that he sees a substantial increase in the num- ber of players, judging from the interest of the freshmen lie spoke with at freshman orientation. Khoo hopes to see an increase of Americans in the club, which comprises mostly international students. Khoo said competitive badminton is played much faster and more intense than back-yard and physical education-course badmintion.

With space in the residence halls for little more than 3,000 students, there are not enough rooms for the freshmen who are required to live on campus, not to mention the hundreds of upperclassmen who want to live in residence halls. For the third year in a row, freshmen are being housed at Texas Women's University until space can be found for them at NT. Many transfer students and graduate students who might prefer to live on campus have no choice but to seek off-campus housing. The most conventional reac- tion to this situation is to scream for the Housing Office to build more dorms, pronto. Bui this isn't feasible for two reasons. NT has already spent its budget for the next couple of years, and the state is not likely to give clearance for new...

A U.S. official, speaking on condition he not be named, said the dead were part of a group of seven Americans who went to Honduras recently to help contras, who are fighting the Sandinistas. Sen.

The base is to be home to four ships and 9,(KM) military personnel and depen- dents, Navy officials said. In an Aug. 21 letter signed by Capt. James P.
