The North Texas Daily TUESDAY, JANUARY 20, 1981 NORTH TEXAS STATE UNIVERSITY, DENTON. TEXAS 64TH YEAR NO. 55 Vandiver presents restructuring plan to unsure faculty ■ By MIKE WIGGINS Staff Writer NT President Frank Vandiver presented his plan to the faculty Mon- day for reorganizing NT's colleges into interdisciplinary centers to shift emphasis more towards international and future interests. The plan has not yet been adopted and is only intended to be the groundwork for a final plan, Dr. Van- diver said at a faculty convocation Mon- day. Dr. Howard Smith, vice president for academic affairs, was named to head the steering committee that will work out the organization and planning for the reorganization plan. The steering committee will be composed of 10 members elected by the Faculty Senate and 10 members appointed by Dr. Smith. The steering committee will present a plan to the Board of Regents Feb. 20. Subcommittees will spend a year study- ing the plan for restructuring. In his sp...

83 Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Tuesday, January 20,1981 Editorials Hostage agreement It is easy to get caught up in the emotion of the mo- ment. Fifty-two Americans held hostage in a foreign land for 443 days are at last on their way home. For 14 Kk months the nation has shared in their ordeal. Since Nov. 4, 1979, when a group of Iranian militants stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, Americans at home have agonized over threats of spy trials, execu- tions and seemingly deliberate attempts to raise hopes of a release only to have them destroyed in a seemingly endless cycle. The entire drama seemed to drag on and on, increasing the public's disillusionment. But now, at last, it is rapidly coming to an end. Carter's llth-hour push for a settlement that would bring about the release of the hostages was successful. And in all fairness to the president, it can be said that the United States did not capitulate to the fanatic and sometimes impossible demands of the Iranians. In t...

Tuesday, January 20,1981 THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY—PAGE 3 Secretaries' fantasy becomes near reality in v9 to 5' Parton, Tomlin, Fonda trio revalue overworked secretarial roles By JAMES KAUFMANN Staff Writer Faith Baldwin probably wouldn't like it. Miss Baldwin, a forerunner to the "Harlequin" romanticists whose writings established the typical American secretary as a pretty smart girl who was cer- tain of an unspoken respect between boss and employee and could be counted on to sacrifice love, privacy and self-esteem for the good of the company and, especially, the boss, would find little to applaud in the jaundiced view writer-director Colin Higginshas of the business world in his "9 to 5." HIGGINS' APPROACH is less sentimental and more realistic than Baldwin's. He sees secretaries as they generally are and have been: overworked, under- paid and nameless cogs in the machinery of big business. Miss Baldwin used her secretaries to touch the heart and to speak of professional loyalty; Higg...

PAGE 4—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Tuesday, January 20,1981 Technology demand increases as manpower supply falls short By JERRY PR1CKETT StafT Writer When you add up all the figures, it computes. Although the demand for people in engineering and other high technology fields is increasing, the supply is not meeting the demand. The probability is that the shortage will continue for at least 10 years, says a report, "Engineering and High Technology Manpower Shortages: The Connection with Mathematics," from the Southern Regional Education Board. John Allen, chairman of the NT mathematics department, said the shor- tage begins with two problems: high school students are not taking enough math courses and there is a severe shor- tage of high school math teachers. THE REPORT says an analysis of 1979 college graduates who were prepared to teach had only 2.2 percent in math, while 12.2 percent were in the health, physical education and recrea- tion areas. "The base of the problem goes back to high...

Tuesday, January 20,1981 THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY—PAGE 5 Reagan moves in Continued from Page I Reagan spent most of Monday in conferences: first on national security, then on the economy and finally with his prospective Cabinet. As the more than 100,000 visitors to Washington continued their celebrations of Reagan's ascendancy, the president-elect's only public func- tion was a star-studded, televised evening gala at Capital Centre. The Reagans flew by helicopter to the arena, about IS miles from down- town, for the show directed by Frank Sinatra, with Johnny Carson as host. Reagan will play a more central role at Tuesday noon, when, on the Capitol steps with the marble monu- ments of American government as a grand vista before him, Reagan recites the 35-word oath by which he takes office. Reagan, a conservative Republican, at 69 will be the oldest man ever to become president, the first divorced man and the first actor. Reagan's electoral victory last November headed the conservative ...

9 Ti-K'i\ PAGE 6—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Tuesday, January 20, 1981 Iranian asset freeze scares investors • , HyltKKY PRU'KETT SUff Writer President Jimmy Carter may have scared other countries from investing in U.S. banks by freezing $9.5 billion in Iranian assets after the Nov. 4, 1979, takeover of the American embassy in Tehran, Dr. George Christy of the business faculty said. Dr. Christy said strong precedents in international relationships separate banking from politics in the absence of a declaration of war. As an example, he said George Washington had 200 shares of Bank of l-ngland stock that paid him regular dividends while he was leading the American Revolution. The freezing of the assets could affect the U.S. banking industry, causing foreign money not to be invested in American banks, Dr. Christy said. He said the freeze was ill-advised because the reaction of many members of the Organization of Petroleum Ex- porting Countries, particularly Saudi Arabia, was that American ba...

* 4 ("f I ' t Tuesday, January 20,1981 Hoopsters find comfort at home The NT men's basketball team can identify well with the old saying, "There's no place like home." Ignoring last night's Texas game, the Mean Green is 5-1 at the Super Pit with the only blemish coming against the nation's top- ranked team, DePaul. But, the Eagles have found the road to be rough and rocky indeed, as they have compiled a 2-4 slate on opponents' courts and are 2-2 on neutral sites. In addition, NT can boast of having the best-founded bragging rights to the mythical Metroplex Championship with triumphs over SMU, TCU and UT- Arlington. This year's version of the "Bill Blakeley Run-and-Gun Show" got off to the best start by an NT team since 1975- 76 with five consecutive victories. That string included a 30-point romp over Texas Lutheran, three-point squeakers over SMU and Southeastern Louisiana, a 69-63 victory over St. Mary's and a one-point thriller over TCU. But, the Eagles' bubble burst in the Couga...

TEXAS 64TH YEAR NO. 56 Hostages fly to Algeria and freedom ALGIERS, Algeria (AP) — The Algerian jetliner carrying 52 American hostages on their freedom flight from Iran landed here early Wednesday, where the Americans were to board U.S. military planes for a flight to West Ger- many.

Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Wednesday, January 21, 1981 Editorials Wiretap proposal A wiretap bill that would allow state authorities to tap phones of people suspected of illegal drug dealings will be reintroduced in the Texas Legislature this session. Although the sponsor of the bill, Sen. Ed Howard, D-Texarkana, says its provisions safeguard individual's rights, wiretapping of any sort is an invasion of privacy. A similar bill was defeated in the Texas House two years ago because legislators said they felt the bill would violate privacy rights. The new bill, a key element inGov.Bill Clem- ents' anti-crime program, makes an illegal tap a third-degree felony, punishable by a maximum jail sentence of 10 years and a $5,000 fine and gives victims of illegal taps the right to sue for damages. Only the director of the Texas Department of Public Safety would be able to request a court order for a tap and only a department official could install a tap. The officer requesting th...

PEAK Daily Reporter After three months in Southeastern Oklahoma, NT archaeologists have un- earthed a variety of artifacts including stone tools, scrapers, projectilc points and grinding stones possibly dating to I000 B.C. The site of the dig is on a small tributary of Brushy-Peaceable Creek, "the future construction area of a dam which will back up water,for about 25 acres and will provide flood control for area residents and water for livestock," said Project Director Duane Peter of the Institute for Applied Sciences.

The testing and excavation of the area were mandated by a federal law requir- ing that all cultural resources be evaluated prior to construction. The ex- cavation site is a direct...

In the space of two days, NT lost both its head football coach and athletic director. Jerry Moore was offered a job he couldn't refuse at Texas Tech in a hush-hush scenario that would have made Richard Nixon proud. The idea of going to a Southwest Conference school, getting TV recognition and other in- tangibles was too much for Moore to turn down. "It was a dream come true," was how the former Baylor wide receiver described it. But the blow left a bitter taste in many people's mouths. Some NT players con- sidered leaving the school, but so far only sophomore fullback David Eliff has transferred from NT. Hi...

TEXAS 64TH YEAR NO. 57 Faculty criticizes Vandiver on tenure, referendum By MIKK WIGGINS SUIT Writer The Faculty Senate Wednesday criticized NT President Frank Van- diver's reorganization plan proposals on tenure, a referendum vote by the faculty and inefficiency at NT in a question- and-answer session. Dr. Arthur Cooper, Faculty Senate vice chairman, questioned Dr. Vandiver on whether his reorganization plan specifically was proposed to replace NT's colleges and departments so that faculty members would lose their tenure and have to rebuild it. DR. VANDIVER responded, "It never occured to me, and I categorically deny it." In an earlier question on tenure and advancement for professors in different centers, Dr. Vandiver said faculty members would decide within their departments how the issues would be handled. "I'm not imply- ing that depart- ments will con- tinue," he said. "Departments...

■I Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Thursday, January 22,1981 Editorials Federal hiring freeze Before taking office, President Ronald Reagan promised to begin his first acts of government hours after being sworn in. He kept that promise Tuesday by signing an executive order to put a freeze on federal hiring. Reagan said the order is intended to curb the size and influence of federal government. He stressed he is not trying to abolish government, he is trying to make it work. Reagan's acts in the first few days of his term were expected to include three other executive orders that would demonstrate his determination to reduce the size and influence of the federal government, Reagan aides said last week. James A. Baker III, Reagan's choice for White House chief of staff, said the four steps under con- sideration for immediate implementation were the hir- ing freeze, abolition of the Council on Wage and Price Stability, suspension of all pending federal regulations and an order ...

The phrase has thwarted jour- nalists and frustrated readers for years. Those historical personalities who have abstained from making public their thoughts will forever remain silent. But for those of the more outspoken persuasion, the ones who utilized wit and wisdom in their expressions, their pearls of insight, criticism and self-revelation will be voiced forevermore through the pages of Miriam Ringo's "Nobody Said It Better." Mrs. Ringo has arranged in 382 factually fat pages a succinct, informative compilation of quotes by and about the famous and infamous.
