The North Texas Daily FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1981 NORTH TEXAS STATE UNIVERSITY. DENTON. TEXAS 64TH YEAR NO. 70 1 I , m i t Father awaits NT statement on daughter's death By KKVIN "DOC" SHAY Staff Writer The parents of Kuthy Harrison Raley, an NT student who fell to her death dur- ing a rappelling exercise on a Fouts Field stadium wall, said they have not been contacted by NT officials about her death. Charles Harrison of Irving said he has been to NT several times since his daughter's death Dec. 5 to obtain infor- mation, but the university police and other officials have not cooperated. "I can't understand it. You'd think someone would let me know what hap- pened to my daughter," Harrison said. "No one even has sent a letter to me or anything. All I know is what I read in the papers." University Attorney Richard Rafes said he has not been contacted by Har- rison. "I haven't talked to any of the family members. I would talk to them if they wanted to see me. But, it would de- pend on t...

Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Friday, February 13,1981 Editorials Fee allocation delays The Student Service Fee Committee will begin its fourth week of deliberations in closed session next week regarding the allocation of $1.5 million in student service fees to 23 campus organizations. The committee has received requests totaling $1,78- 8,940.77 from the organizations and must cut the budgets of some of the groups to meet the $1.5 million student service fee budget. Ignoring Dean of Students Joe Stewart's request that the committee complete its allocations last week, the committee this week continued to stall for time before finalizing its recommendations. Steve Player, committee chairman and Student As- sociation president, said no deadline has been set by Dr. Stewart, and the committee will continue to deliberate until a deadline is set. Player said the committee could complete the recommendations at its meeting next Thursday, but would only do so if Dr. Stewart set that...

Friday, February 13,1981 THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY-PAGE 3 Joe City sets final performance tonight Denton's Joe City Band will return home Tor its final appearance together. The band will play at 9:30 p.m. today and Saturday at Cross- roads club, 1224 W. Hickory. Lindy Wilson, lead singer, started Joe City Band four years ago. Joe City underwent several changes of players and music style, but the latest version of Joe City Band is the most successful, said Ed Cobb, band manager. Last year, Steve Wilson, Lindy's younger brother, was initiated into the band. Cobb said Lindy Wilson in- troduced Steve into the Dallas night club circuit. "The reason the band is breaking up is that Steve is now ready to go alone," Cobb said. "Steve will probably start another band and Lindy will continue with Joe City." Joe City Band comprises six members: Matt Davidson on keyboards, Lawrence Dominquez on lead guitar and vocals, Ross Born on vocals and rhythm guitar, Steve Wilson on bass and lead vocals, Homer...

PAGE 4—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Friday, February 13,1981 Telescope lights up cosmos in big way for stargazer Editor's Note: In the mountains in remote west Texas are four "time machines." They tell us of the universe millions of years ago, before the first human walked on earth. FORT DAVIS (AP)—Tom Barnes frequently stays up all night long in an unheated room looking back in time millions, even billions of years. He wears a coat and gloves. He works weekends and holidays. He sometimes skips meals because he is so busy. Yet he said he has one of the best jobs in the world. He is an astronomer and assistant director of the McDonald Observatory near Fort Davis. Because of mind- boggling distances in space and the limited speed of light, he said, the obser- vatory's four telescopes act like time machines. "The farther out in space you look, the farther back in time you go because it takes so long for the light from distant galaxies to reach Earth," explained Barnes, 36. For instance, he sa...

PAGE 6—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Friday, February 13,1981 Cable TV plays xSuper Bowl' in Dallas DALLAS (AP) — Dallas has been dubbed the Super Bowl of cable televi- sion franchising, but this competition has six teams and ever-changing, improvised rules to guard against cor- ruption. Dallas officials watched franchise skirmishes in other cities degenerate into mudslinging, lawsuits and convictions and vowed to avoid such unhappy endings. In Johnstown, Pa., for example, a principal of the winning company and three city officials pleaded guilty or were convicted in a bribery scheme. Boulder, Colo., lost a $1 million law- suit when it tried to oust a company that lured fewer than 2,000 subscribers in a city of 76,000. Pittsburgh and Houston are embroiled in suits brought by losing companies that claim winners were granted special consideration. In Houston, where direct negotiation was used to award the franchise to five companies, a grand jury and the FBI are investigating allegations some...

Leana Hocking has been one of the top runners for the NT track team the past three years. "I was at Texas A&M for a year, and then I became really in- terested in music and began looking around at different schools," Hocking said. "I remember seeing Coach (John) McKenzie along the sidelines at meets encouraging his runners and that impressed me." Hocking started out as a sprinter, but in her freshman year in high school, she began competing in the 800-meter run. "I like this race best because it is a real gutsy race. It starts off fast and ends fast with no room in the middle to pace yourself or to think." She said her father persuaded her to compete in track. "He ...

Tyler said he still is making plans for his spring practice and is trying to schedule the spring scrimmage game so it will not conflict with other campus events. "It will probably end around April 30, but I am trying to make sure it will fit into the university calendar," Tyler said "I haven't set any specific dates yet." Tyler said his team is doing basic con- ditioning exercises that concentrate on weight lifting and running techniques. "There is no football technique in this program. Its main purpose is to increase their strength." A National Collegiate Athletic As- sociation rule states that a team can only have 20 workouts during spring practice, and ...

The North Texas Daily TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1981 NORTH TEXAS STATE UNIVERSITY. DENTON. TEXAS 64TH YEAR NO. 71 Auditor says NT owes state $750,000 By MIKE WIGGINS Staff Writer State auditor Mike Ferguson said Monday that NT owes $753,525 to the state's education and general funds because of improper use of state ap- propriated funds in the 1978-79 fiscal year. Ferguson said state appropriated funds were intended to he used for general and educational purposes and not by auxiliary enterprises for which NT used state appropriated money. Auxiliary enterprises must be funded through student fees, tuition and money they generate. "The state Legislature intended state funds be appropriated for education and general purposes," Ferguson said. "This excludes auxiliary enterprises. They have to operate on funds other than state money. "The state funds cannot be used to support the auxiliary enterprises if it generates money or receives fees, such as tuition, and it cannot be used to pay the sa...

Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Tuesday, February 17,1981 Editorials Drinking age increase A bill approved by the Texas Senate to raise the state's minimum drinking age from 18 to 19 should not be passed by the House. The bill, which excludes 18-year-olds in the military, is an attempt to decrease teen-age drinking. Supporters of the bill, including education and civic groups, fear that 18-year-old high school students are obtaining alcholic bevearges for younger students. There are arguments for and against drinking, all of which should be carefully considered by individuals, but the Legislature should remember that at 18 a person legally is an adult. An adult should be able to decide for himself whether to drink. The decision should not be made ab- solutely for all 18-year-olds. Principals and teachers say the problem of alcoholic teen-agers is growing, and they cite figures relating alcohol to the increased number of automobile acci- dents among teen-agers. Alcohol is a p...

Lily Tomlin may he a professional actress, but through characters like Judith Beasley, junior philosopher Edith Ann, the charismatic Sister Boogie Woman, the lyrical Miss Bobbie Jeanine and the caustic telephone operator Ernestine, she is indeed a real person, just like ourselves, reflecting real emo- tions, real conflicts and real concerns in a humorous yet identifiable manner. HER LATEST incarnation Pat Kramer, "The incredible Shrinking Woman," is no exception. Like Woody Allen, Tomlin's comedy is growing out of the knee-slapping, guf- faw stage and is bloss...

PAGE 4—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Tuesday, February 17,1981 Puppet provides problem-solving study to children By JANET BRIDGES Daily Reporter Upon entering a kindergarten classroom on the NT campus, a person might observe possible geniuses of tomorrow reflecting on solutions to Elwood's problem. Elwood, the resident puppet, explained to the children that Andrea and Hector would not let him play with them in a sandbox. "What should I do?" he asked. "Throw sand in his face!" one boy exclaimed. "Try playing with someone else," a girl sug- gested. "Go tell the teacher," another child responded. "Say please." another said. Dr. Sara Lundsteen of the education faculty investigates how young children solve problems. The central purpose of the research, she said, is to guide children's development in thinking. "We need creative problem solvers. Schools should be doing things to bring kids in that direction," Dr. Lundsteen said. During the past 20 years, American education has concentrated its res...

Bob Baker, who teaches at the Rudrananda Yoga Ashram in Denton, has studied kundalini yoga for 10 years and will instruct the class.

"It incorporates all facets of many different kinds of yoga." Discipline is the key and stepping stone toward the growth process of in- dividual development in kundalini yoga, Baker said.

The class was first offered last fall with an enrollment of 20 people, the maximum number. This semester, Ms. Warde said, between 25 and 35 people have enrolled in the non-credit course. Registration for the course will continue through Wednesday. The course, which costs $23, is designed to teach students everything from the basics of shooting a firearm to cleaning a weapon, she said. The class meets twice during the semester for two- hour lectures and on four Saturdays for three hours at a local gun range. Denton police officer Jim Bush teaches the class.

He played wide receiver at NT from 1976-80. With the national signing date for high school football talent a day away, the college recruiting wars using unethical and sometimes illegal methods people hear about are not just puffed-up rumors. I know because I was caught in the middle of many of those battles as a high school senior coming out of Carter High. I had made the All-District, All-Metro and All-Greater Dallas teams as a cornerbuck and wingback after my senior season at Carter High and missed making the All-State team by three votes. After my senior season, I received numerous calls from college football coaches who wanted me ...

Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Wednesday, February 18,1981 Editorials Bail, appeal reform Chief Justice Warren E. Burger called for an end last week to lenient bail laws and lengthy appeals. In making his plea for change before the American Bar Association's midyear meeting in Houston, Burger used vague examples and offered idealistic solutions in emphasizing the need to combat the nation's rising crime rate. He placed the blame on many institutions, including the judiciary and school systems, which he said no longer teach values of in- tegrity, truth, personal accountability and respect for others' rights. With the deterrent effect of swift arrest, prompt trial, certain penalty and finality of judgment, Burger claims the crime rate would drop. He cited statistics that indicate a large amount of crime is committed by people awaiting trial, on parole or on probation. He recommended the consideration of the future danger of the individual be restored to all federal and state ...

Staff Writer David Ryan, Fort Worth Art Museum director, will speak on "The Contemporary Art Museum in Topsy-Turvy Times" at 7:30 p.m. today in Art Building 223. The lecture, sponsored by the NT Art History Club, is free and open to the public. Ryan will explain the role of contemporary art museums in today's society and will use the Fort Worth Art Museum as an example. He will dis- cuss trends in art styles during the past 20 years, such as the absence of mainstream art. "We have been inundated with a vast array of different works during the last 20 years," he said. "That can be disorientating for the viewer." He said that today's artists are very active and that many of them are trying to break society's stereotypical idea of an artist through new styles. Ryan said even though museums are vehicles for art, some artists have criticized the design of som...
