We'd return time and time again to watch "Pinocchio" and "Bambi" because their mov- ing stories allowed us to step into a world of fantasy and adventure; a world where our childhood dreams became a reality.

Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 9 Friday, September 14, 1984 Editorials Video debates Democratic presidential candidate Walter Mondale re- i cently challenged President Reagan to a series of six tele- vised debates. Reagan aides said the president declined to engage in such a prolonged series of debates, but said he would consider two debates. This a good sign for the American electorate. It is a rare opportunity, during the long election campaign, to ' see the contenders for the nation's highest office going at , it head-to-head during prime time. If Reagan finally accepts the challenge, he will have | far less to gain than Mondale, and possibly far more to lose. If Mondale were to come out looking like a winner, widespread public doubts about his effectiveness as a lead- er could be dispelled. If Reagan were to come out well in the public eye, he would not really gain any ground, he would simply hold his own. However, if Reagan appeared to be too strident in his , opinions, ...

Friday, September 14, 1984 I Crickets: Invasion of Nature's crunchy thermometers By JOE STAFFORD Special Writer When crickets chirp, they are not only serunading in search of love, they are also measuring the temperature. In her book "Insect Fact and Folklore," Dr. Lucy Clausen says the rate and intensity of a cricket's chirping varies with the tempera- ture—louder and faster in warmer weather, slower and quieter in cooler weather. Based on the the chirping of a field cricket, here's the formula for figuring the temperature: Count the number of chirps in 15 seconds and add 38. The answer approximates the temper- ature in Farhenheit degrees. FOR THE LAST few years, in late August and early September, mature black field crick- ets have come out in full force, attracted by light, chirping into the wee hours--and mak- ing it easy to figure the temperature. But why are there so many ol them? "I've been...

There always are more students seeking rooms than rooms available during the fall semester, McGuire said, and NT will proba- bly have to house students at TWU again next fall. "BASICALLY, THERE are four options we have to increase the number of spaces avail- able on the NT campus, but I doubt that we'd be able to accomplish any of them by next fall," she said.

' 4M liiUl The North Texas Daily Tuesday, September 18, 1984 Editorials NT's Far East Some of the "NTSU Far East" students are not happy, and why should they be? They are supposedly NT students, but they don't have all the rights and privileges of NT students. Because NT's housing department signed a one-semester contract with Texas Woman's University to allow 235 NT students to live in Smith-Carroll Hall at TWU, the "NTSU Far East" students are being discriminated against. According to Betsy McGuire, acting director of housing, if she starts moving NT students at TWU to NT as dorm rooms are vacated, Smith-Carroll would become vacant, appar- ently an intolerable situation since NT has signed a one- semester contract. To anyone who has ever lived in a dorm at NT, it is common knowledge that as each day passes at the beginning of a semester, dorm rooms gradually become empty. Students move out of the dorms for one reason or another. Some don't like dorm life, some don't like school an...

Lon Clay Hill and Dr. Thomas Harri- son told the commission that a petition by W.S.

They said the added light from a new subdivision there could hinder observation experiments that require dark skies.

< mw. The North Texas Daily Page 2 Wednesday, September 19, 1984 — Editorials ^V'N.v A better idea? The new, computerized system of preregistration begins next month, if anyone can figure out how it works. The idea behind the system—to get rid of the long lines and mass confusion of the current registration system—is a good one. However, the move toward computerization is being enacted in a very unorganized manner. Students were not informed of the new system until they registered for their fall classes. To be told in Septem- ber that the preference for spring classes will go to those who can afford another tuition payment in early December is wrong. Students should have been informed of the new policy at the time spring grade reports were mailed, if not sooner. This would have allowed students the whole summer to try to ^ work the double-whammy tui- tion payments into their bud- gets. Of course, emergency loans are available for circumstances like these, but it is extremely doub...
