t I I ' I ' • ' . < Wednesday, December 3, 1980 Gas company official predicts rates will soar AUSTIN (AP) — Executives of Valero Energy Corp. told customers Tuesday natural gas prices would rise steadily until 1985, when a big in- crease is expected to accompany deregulation, but the company is building up reserves. Every part of Texas except the Panhandle and El Paso depends on Valero for at least part of its gas sup- ply. Dec. 31 marks the first anniversary of the creation of Valero, and ex- ecutives of the San Antonio-based company delivered a status report to about 100 customers. PRESIDENT Bill Cireehey predicted the cost of a cubic foot gas for Valero customers would rise by 4 cents to 5 cents a month until 1985, when prices would double. The dramatic increase, he said, would result from the federal deregulation of prices on new gas in wells deeper than 5,000 feet. However, Greehey said, Valero has increased its gas reserves by 17 per- cent since it split from Lo Vaca Gather...

PAGE 6—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Wednesday, December 3, 1980 Minorities strive for recognition Intercultural services fights money, involvement woes By ROSIKC ARBO Special Writer While black and Mexican- American students at NT have the same fundamental needs as other stu- dents, the developmental areas can vary, Argie Nell Madison, director of Intercultural Services, said. Although the situations that have resulted from being black or Mexican-American did not originate at this school, discrimination con- tinues here and must be dealt with properly, she said. "With the help and cooperation of administrators at NT I would like to implement new programs designed to get minorities back into the mainstream of society," said the Palestine, Texas native. "Our objec- tive is to work with minority students to raise their levels of achievement." In the past, the Intercultural Ser- vices Office did not have a full-time person to assist students, but had a sponsor who was only there part of the ti...

4 Wednesday, December 3, 1980 Songleaders prepare for third season The NT Songleaders perform dancing routines at home football and basketball games at halftime and on the sidelines. The songleaders' squad consists of eight girls: squad captain Valerie Mar- tinez, co-captain Cindy Hughes, Marianne Lidiak, Cindy Hayward, Vicki Foster, Susie Reyero, Julie Haynes and Kathy Chappell. This is the songleaders' third year at NT. They started performing only for basketball games but now they travel with the NT Marching Band to the foot- ball games. "We do a lot for football, but basket- ball is really our season," Miss Hughes said. The songleaders attended the United Spirit Association Songleading Camp in Goleta, Calif., in August. They returned with a spirit stick, 23 blue ribbons and a sweepstakes trophy for their perfor- mance at the two-week camp. At the camp, Miss Reyero did well enough to receive an instructor's ap- plication for a teaching position. THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY—PAGE 7 Stanl...

PAGE 8—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Wednesday, December 3, 1980 Women hoopsfers seek eighth victory By DEE DEE THOMASSON Daily Reporter The NT women's basketball team, 7-1, will try to extend its five-game win- ning streak today at the University of Oklahoma. J'Lynne Johnston, Whitesboro junior, said, "Our main concern is trying to stop their center, Marley McGuire. She's a good player." NT head coach Denise Smith said the six-foot-two-inch McGuire "is very ef- fective at shooting and her efforts are shown on the scoreboard. She plays a very aggressive defense and will be a tough player to play against." Illness might affect the OU game, Smith said. Some of NT's players have the flu and might not be able to play. Ms. Smith said she is confident the team has enough endurance in spite of the il- lnesses. Ms. Smith said NT's experience could be a factor in the game. NT has played eight games so far this season to one for OU. "I believe the team is more ex- perienced at this point since we are...

TEXAS 64TH YEAR NO. 53 Judge dismisses Dilbeck suit at plantiff's request Irwin calls for resignations of members in 1conspiratorial circle'; Whaley continues libel suit By CAROL RUST Staff W riter Former NT student Karen Dilbeck's suit against Dr. Donald L. Whaley, director of the Center for Behavioral Studies, was dismissed Wednesday at her request. Ms. Dilbeck had filed suit against Dr. Whaley in 1979 alleging she was sexually harassed while undergoing counseling in 1977. Dr. Whaley has filed a counter- suit against Ms. Dilbeck, alleging libel. Although Ms. Dilbeck's suit against Whaley has been dismissed, Dr. Whaley's attorney, G. Brockett Irwin, said at an afternoon press conference that he plans to pursue those he claims are involved in "a conspiratorial circle" against Dr. Whaley. Ms. Dilbeck gave a closed deposition Wednesday, which he said "proved beyond a scintilla of a doubt that there ...

C ommentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Thursday, December 4, 1980 Editorials Water resources Texas House Speaker Billy Clayton an- nounced Friday he will ask the Legislature to use the state's surplus revenue to create a trust fund to develop water resources. Although details of his proposal have not been formulated, Clayton said the fund would make money available for further development of industrial and municipal water systems. As he envisions the fund, the money could not be used for anything except to develop water resources unless the Legislature voted to do so. Only the earnings of the fund would be spent and the principal would remain un- touched, Clayton said. A water resource fund should be adopted by the Legislature because Texas faces serious water shortage problems. Bob Bluntzer of the Texas Department of Water Resources said Texas may be forced to im- port water by 2000 if additional water resources are not developed. He said the Department of Water Resources is stud...

FLEETWOOD Special Writer The Texas legend of Josiah Wilbarger, a man who survived being scalped by Indians, was the inspira- tion for "Orpheus in Pecan Springs," a ballad opera by music faculty members Thomas Holliday and Dr. William Latham. The opera, which is a blend of Texas history and Greek mythology, will be performed at 8 p.m. today, Friday and Saturday in the Univer- sity Theater of the Speech Building. Dr. Latham composed the music, and the libretto was written by Holli- day. Dr. Latham is a nationally recognized composer who has been honored by the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers. The idea for the opera came to Dr. Latham when he read an account of the scalping of Josiah Wilbarger. Ac- cording to the Texas legend, Wilbarger was attacked and scalped by Indians in 1833. SARAH HORNSBY, the wife of Reuben...

PAGL >—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY ^Unique' process restores new life to antique chairs B> KRIS 11 Ml ISF.NBAC H I>uil> Reporter "Irench Caning," a unique type of weaving guaranteed to give new life to antique chairs is being taught in the University Union's Arts and Crafts Center by Dan Harris, Denton graduate student. French caning has been around for 300 to 400 years and is one of the oldest weaving methods still being used, Harris said. Harris said he is teaching a seven-step process in which seven layers of cane are woven across the seat of a chair in horizontal, vertical and diagonal strips. Harris said the caning process takes a professional from four and one-half to five lu>ur- and costs $75-$ 100. "All of the ladies in my class have an- tique chairs and can't get them rewoven anywhere for a decent price, so they decided to learn to do it themselves," Harris aid "French caning is a unique art." Harris is leaching the five-week course at 7 p.m. Thursdays. Harris said...

Thursday, December 4, 1980 THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY—PAGE 5 Dallas school official laments aliens' plight 9yDANIEL CAVAZOS Daily Reporter The controversy over educating illegal alien children is a "no win issue" said Dallas School Board member Robert Medrano Tuesday night, but nonethe- less he has thought all along the children should be educated. Medrano spoke to NT students and administrators in the University Union. His talk was sponsored by the Inter- cultural Center, College of Education and Chicanos Actively United for Social Advancement. THE ILLEGAL alien dilemma can be looked at from several angles, Medrano said. "It's not the children's fault they're here illegally. Education is a right every individual deserves. On the other hand, it is still against Texas law to admit these children and they are putting a tremen- dous economic burden on school dis- tricts since the state is net helping to pick up the tab," he said. Pretty soon, Medrano said, "You'll run out of hands." The con...

PAGE 6—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Thursday, December 4, 1980 Nutritionist says fast food not all junk B> CATHY WA1.KNSKY Special Writer Fast foods, commonly known as junk food, may not be so junky, Dr. Roger A. Shcwmake of the nutrition faculty, said. In fact, it is possible to walk into the local Jack-in-the-Box or Burger King and eat a nutritous meal with careful planning, he said Many fast-food chains are voluntarily listing nutrition informa- tion about the foods offered, such as the percentage of the recommended daily al- lowance of vitamins and other nutrients. Dr. Shewmake defined junk food as "any food that has been refined or enriched with additives." Most people are unaware of their eating habits, particularly college stu- dents, Dr. Shewmake said. "It would be possible for a student to maintain an adequate diet on junk food. However, there are drawbacks to such a diet, like too many calories, too many additives, not enough minerals and not enough fiber." Lack of fiber, or r...

Thursday, December 4, 1980 THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY-PAGE 7 Duran cramps fight ethics $8 million 'dive' raises questions of honor By KIKK C OUC H I>aiI> Reporter The whole set of circumstances has left a bad taste in my mouth. As Shakespeare wrote, "Something's rotten in Denmark." I'm referring to the Roberto Duran-Sugar Ray Leonard welterweight championship fight last week in New Orleans' Supcrdome. Duran, who had taken the title away from Leonard in June 20's "Brawl in Montreal" by judges' decision, sur- rendered in the eighth round of their second bout. Duran claimed he had stomach and shoulder cramps, that he was tired of boxing and was going to retire. Duran walked away with $8 mil- lion from that fight; Leonard got $7 million. Fifteen milllion to watch a guy give up. That's unbelievable. Duran went into the hospital after the fight for a complete physical checkup. Me said he had eaten some food before he fight, and possibly that was what caused the cramps. Various sportscast...

PAGE 8—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Hicks' charity shots lead NT over SMU Thursday, December 4, 1980 H> JKRRY PRU KETT Staff Writer Pat Hicks made four straight free throws in the last two minutes to lead the NT men's basketball team to a 69-66 victory over SMU. "It (the pressure) was on me, so I didn't want to let the team down," Hicks said. Last year, NT lost several close games with missed free throws, but this time the shots were made when it counted. In a game which neither team led by more than six points, NT pulled ahead 67-62 after Hicks made two free throws from a one-and-one situation. SMU failed in its attempt to come back, miss- ing three rebounded shots with the score 69-66 in the last 12 seconds. SMU's David Pi-'iler, Kirk Lundblade and Gordi vVelch could not put the ball in after abounding, and even though Welch was fouled time had expired and (he game was out of reach. Even with Hick's clutch free throws, NT was kept in the game by Delonte Taylor, who led all scorers wit...

The North Texas Daily FRIDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1980 NORTH TEXAS STATE UNIVERSITY, DENTON. TEXAS 64TH YEAR NO. 54 City fails to reach goal; census figure increases Denton officials Thursday released a preliminary report from the Census Bureau that increases the population figure for the city by 10 percent, but does not raise the count to the 50,000 officials had hoped for. The count, which is not final, says Denton has a population of 47,847, up 3,744 from the bureau's original I reports. The census bureau said in August that Denton's population counted 44,103. City officials had estimated Denton's population at 56,000 and had hoped the preliminary count would go above 50,000, a mark which would make the city eligible for federal grants and funds worth an estimated $10 million to $16 million over the next ten years. At a press conference Thursday, Plan- ning and Zoning Director Jeff Meyer said the new housing count of 19,299 reflects a change based on city surveys that were submitted to t...

Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Friday, December 5, 1980 Fr Editorials Afghanistan outposts The Soviet Union is planning to establish settle- ments in Afghanistan to reinforce its dominance in the Middle East and to compensate for its weakening grip on Poland, a Pakistan newspaper reported. Permanent Soviet settlements in Afghanistan are planned to counter an expected Moslem resurgence in neighboring Pakistan and Iran, the independent Urdu language newspaper, the Jang of Rawalpindi, said. The Soviet Union gradually has been losing its control over Poland after repeated concessions to the country's strengthening independent labor unions. The settlements would be fashioned after Israel's set- tlements in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, and like the Israeli outposts, would create a permanent presence in occupied territory. The Soviets selected Kabul, the Afghanistan capital; Jalalabad, bordering Pakistan; and Herat, bordering Iran, as settlement sites, the newspaper reported....

Friday, December 5, 1980 THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY—PAGE 3 Neil Simon revives memories of '30s, '40s, with xOld Times' "Old Times' " Neil Simon r Bv JAMKS KAIJFMANN Staff Writer Whatever happened to C.K. Dexter Haven? Since Cary Grant assumed the role of the misunderstood romantically mud- dlesome ex-husband of wealthy and as- sured Tracy Lord in "The Philadelphia Story," the character has seldom been revisited, Neil Simon, however, has revived him somewhat, along with the situations, the style, the sophistication, the class, the humor and the escapist fun of vintage Preston Sturges, George Cukor, Howard Hawks comedies. Simon has packed it all into a contem- porary sophisticated comedy ap- propriately titled "Seems Like Old Times." Like the classic comedies of that golden era from which it draws inspira- tion, the film's plot is unpredictable, sometimes outrageous, and yet despite the unwieldy consternations it retains a pleasingly simple above-board appeal. "Seems Like Old Times" first ...

For the past 54 years, Mrs. Whyte of Roanoke has been living her dream and pursuing a career that is generally associated with men. At 80, the woman voted "No. 1 Woman Flyer" by Look magazine in 1938, looks back on the toddler days of flight.

Friday, December 5, 1980 THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY-PAGE 5 Birds Continued from Page 1 "A pathologist noted that there is no pathological difference between tissue taken from a patient suffer- ing from histoplasmosis and cancerous lung tissue," Mrs. Erdman said. "Most of us have probably suf- fered histoplasmosis and called it the two-day flu." At 4:30 p.m. every evening, Mrs. Erdman and six volunteers, armed with clow guns with a 108 decibel intensity, ring the campus area. The volunteers fire their noisemakers in front of the massive black cloud as it sweeps down. The deafening shot explodes 60 feet in the air, dispersing the approaching birds toward the northeast."We don't shoot any of the birds," Mrs. Erdman said, "we're trying to repulse their attack and scatter the birds outward and away from the campus." Mrs. Erdman hopes this strategy will alter the birds' behavior enough to discourage them from ever again choosing TWU for their winter gathering place. "From the complaints we've ...

PAGE 6—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Teaching fellows relieve full-time faculty members By KH1AGBOAYE Daily Reporter Most administrators and full-time faculty members think teaching fellows improve instructional programs and cut costs while some teaching fellows feel they are underpaid and overworked. Dr. Hugh Kirkpatrick, assistant dean of the Graduate School, applauded the role of teaching fellows. "They help out our full-time faculty members by taking over some of their classes and relieving their loads. Plus, they gain valuable teaching experience at the same time, so it benefits them." And there are financial benefits. "The overall cost of undergraduate education probably would be significantly higher if graduate students were not employed as teaching fellows," Dr. Harper Keith of the chemistry faculty said. BUT, SOME teaching fellows say they are not getting paid enough. "I think the salary one gets here is low in view of the inflationary trends and personal needs," Joe Clarke, Denton...

NT was 6-5 on the year, and could easily have been 8-3 or 2-9—if more fumbles were possible, but I doubt it. Joe Stevenson threw a lot of completions—to several teams. Sportscope NT won its Homecoming in Fouts Field, the second appearance in front of the hometown folks. The best part of the game was that it was so cold the fans did not have to stick around for the end of the game. There were some people left after half- time. A party of "influential" people took over the top half of the pressbox and had a good time. There was one good thing during the season—as hard as it is to find. Malcolm Jones gained more than 1,000 yards and set a ...
