There will be two groups participating in the trip scheduled lor March 14-21, Dr. Russell Ware, Baptist Student Center director, said. One will serve as a fine arts program, touring campuses of North Harris County colleges and San Jacinto College. Activities will include concerts on campus, visitations, leadership training and witnessing, Karen Helton, BSC campus evangelism coordinator, said. "It will give them (NT students) a chance to minister to other campuses and be aware of the needs of students on other campuses."

PAGE 6—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Wednesday, February 18,1981 NT international students to vote on council constitution changes By F.HI AGBOAYE Daily Reporter The International Student Council is scheduled to vote Feb. 27 to amend an article of its constitution to allow the council to enlarge its membership. The council is asking for nominations for selection of I98l's outstanding un- dergraduate and graduate international students. Sections 2 and 2 of Article II of the organization's constitution, that outlines the council's governance. Adel Al-Jubcir, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia junior and council president, said the amendments will reorganize the council ind hopefully encourage more students to participate. A major stumbling block, however, to this goal is the misconception many NT students have that the council's membership is limited to foreign stu- dents. "This is not true," Al-Jubeir said. "The council is meant for every student on this campus. "If we have more people," he said, "we will...

By DEEDF.ETHOMASON Daily Reporter Ater a 4-6 record in the fall semester, head NT baseball coach Blane Bartley is putting his squad through a physical conditioning program that he hopes will improve its play. "We have the potential for a good season this semester," Bartley said. "The team is much more prepared phisically now than they were last year at this time." To acheive a well-conditioned competitive condi- tion, the team practices approximately two hours each day. After doing stretching exercises, they practice throwing and hitting. After working on fundamentals, the offense and defense work on situational drills. The drills simulate game conditions and prepare the players to react in the game situations. "Practices are going real well," said Bartley. "The team is working hard and all the new players are catching on very well." Karl Alan, Denton graduate student and ...

The North Texas Daily THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 1981 NORTH TEXAS STATE UNIVERSITY, DENTON, TEXAS 84TH YEAR NO. 73 NT transfers $565,852 to state accounts By JAVIER RODRIGUEZ Staff Writer At the request of state auditors, NT has transferred $565,852 from its local bank accounts to its state accounts, but is withholding an additional SI87,672 until an opinion by the state attorney general's office suggests where that money belongs. As a result of a I980 audit of NT's 1978-79 budget, state auditors deter- mined NT had improperly used $753,524 of state money to pay for costs incurred by auxiliary enterprise opera- tions, budget director George Hardin said. Auxiliary enterprises are operations that are supported by revenue generated by the university and should not be funded by state appropriated funds in the education and general accounts. Hardin said all but the disputed amount was transferred in 1980. Student files co m plaints for assault By KEVIN "DOC" SHAY Staff Writer An NT student f...

Commentary The North Texas Daily j i Page 2 Thursday, February 19,1981 Editorials Tenure considerations The granting of tenure is an important decision within university departments, one that requires careful evaluation of faculty members being con- sidered. There is division in faculty sentiment about the stan- dards used for granting tenure. Some believe that more emphasis should be placed on teaching effectiveness, and others believe that research and publication compensates for less effective teaching. Due to recent events in the NT biology department, the subject of tenure and what it should be has been questioned. The Faculty Handbook states the granting of tenure is the most important decision made in the develop- ment of an outstanding faculty. The handbook said recommendations for tenure should be based on critical review of evidence ac- cumulated during a probationary period as to the faculty member's performance in teaching, research or other scholarly or creative activit...

Thursday, February 19,1981 THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY-PAGE 5 New *tick' to xtock' to clocks An electronic device that would synzchronize the clocks in the Ad- ministration Building tower and en- sure the clocks maintain accurate time is expected to arrive this week, Gene Scroggins, physical plant direc- tor, said Monday. The new system will send an electronic synchronizing signal to all four clocks at once, helping to ensure the times displayed are accurate on all the clock faces, Scroggins said. "The one (system) we have now puts out individual pulses, so the clocks aren't as likely to keep the same times. The new devise should minimize differences in the readings. "The one we have now doesn't work right or provide output to all the clocks at the same time. This one (the new system) should work much better," he said. "The new system has a memory, and if the power goes off, it has a bat- tery backup. That way, when the power comes back on, the system corrects the time automatically," he ...

V.. ™,v PAGE 6—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Thursday, February 19,1981 Senators approve appointments AUSTIN (AP) —The Senate Nominations Subcommittee approved Tuesday the appointment of two Dallas residents to the Texas Historical Com- mission after one pledged the eopimis- sion would not try to duck a controversy over the restoration of Sam Houston's home. Houston's home at Huntsville— dubbed the "Mount Vernon of Texas" by the Walker County Historical Commission — is owned by Sam Houston State University. Richard Collins, one of the ap- pointees, first expressed reservations about "getting into that can of worms," but Sen. Roy Blake, D-Nacogdoches, said, "I want you to get into it." "There are those in Huntsville who believe it is being destroyed by the way it is being done (restored)," said Blake, "I would not think there would be that much conflict over the way it looked." Restoration on the home that belonged to Houston from 1848 to 1858 began in late October 1980 after a Houston appea...

Deveraux, 5-9, 170-pound running back, gained 918 yards his senior year before suffering a broken collarbone in the seventh game. In his junior year, he netted 1,268 yards and scored 12 touchdowns. He said he narrowed his choices to NT and Tulane University in New Orleans before selecting the Mean Green. "1 picked NT because I'm familiar with the campus and Denton and won't have any problem getting around. T ulane was just too far away for me to go." Even though Bob Tyler, NT head football coach and athletic direc- tor, said he plans to open up the team's passing game next season, Deveraux said Tyler told him the running game would remain strong. "Coach Tyler is a good man, and I think he will help the program," he said. Joining Deveraux were three othe...

The North Texas Daily FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 1981 NORTH TEXAS STATE UNIVERSITY. DENTON. TEXAS 04TH YEAR NO. 74 Haley claims book revives emphasis on family "Roots' Photo by MAX STACY Alex Haley asks a photographer for a script to read By LAURA HAYNES Special Writer Author Alex Haley said he believes his book "Roots," which traces his family back 200 years to Africa, has caused a tremendous in- crease in people's sense of family. Haley, who was at NT Thursday in conjunc- tion with Black Emphasis Month, said most people who deal with genealogical records claim that since the movie "Roots" was first televised in I977 they have had an increased demand for family history information. He said another effect of the "Roots" phenomenon is an increase in the number of family reunions. "Last year I was invited to Ireland for St. Patrick's Day. I was unable to go, but I was told that usually 20,000 to 30,000 people from this country go there for St. Patrick's Day," Haley said. "Last year somethin...

Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Friday, February 20,1981 Editorial Asset transfer legality Although it appears to be a solution to a simple civics problem, a recent decision by a federal judge in Dallas, which challenges the legality of Jimmy Carter's hostage agreement with Iran, wrongfully threatens to damage future international relations and weaken the powers of the president in times of national emergency. U.S. District Judge Robert Porter ruled that Carter did not have the legal jurisdiction to transfer Iranian funds in the United States or to override previous court decisions affecting control of those funds. The decision came in a case involving computer magnate H. Ross Perot's electronics company, Electronic Data Systems. The case involves $20 million in Iranian assets claimed by the company. The amount was awarded to EDS after a May 1980 court decision in a breach of contract suit against Iran. EDS maintained that Iran defaulted on a contract that would have require...

"The book is important because so often the subject of human sexuality from a Christian perspective is never dis- cussed," she said. Ms. Nuechteriein described the dis- cussion group as an "opportunity for students to sort out their own romantic feelings or to help others come to a clear understanding of what it means to be in a male-female relationship, therefore getting a clear understanding of the dynamics of love and marriage." The book is practical, she said. "It doesn't provide the answers, just gives clues (so the individual can chose his solution to the problem) and is sure to stimulate discussion," she said. The discussion will be preceded by a supper prepared by students at 6 p.m.,...

Friday, February 20,1981 THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY-PAGE 7 Soccer players condition indoor By STEVE WILSON Starr Writer Athletes, especially those competing in major college sports, must remain ac- tive during their off-season to sustain a fine competitive edge or at least keep their skills somewhat sharpened. In the South, weather is not a hinderance to outdoor competition, ex- cept for one or two months. Golf, tennis and baseball, after a December and January layoff, resume competition in February and continue through the spring semester. Other seasonal sports, such as football and basketball, utilize detailed training programs for the athletes. Football programs outline weight training and conditioning drills to keep the players in condition. Basketball, which enjoys the luxury of superlative inside facilities, can be practiced year round. SOCCER AT NT, until recently, was left out in the cold. After the season ended, players had few opportunities to keep in shape until the summer cit...

PAGE 8—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Friday, February 20,1981 m Shotputter travels lonely road McAfee remains competitive by steering clear of women By KAREN HORN Special Writer Despite rumors to the contrary, being the only man in a group of women sometimes can have definite drawbacks, Roger McAfee, the only male shot- putter and discus thrower on the NT track team, said. "It gets kinda lonely at practice," he said. "It takes the determination out of it when there is no one with me." McAfee, Fort Worth senior, compen- sates for not being able to train with other men by watching films of other shot-putters and by talking to them at meets and obtaining their opinions and criticism. NT has women shot-putters and dis- cus throwers on its team, but they com- pete and practice separately for their events. The men and women usually lift weights together, which McAfee finds very trying. "They (the women shot- putters) talk a lot, and I like it quiet when I'm training," he said. McAfee has gone up ...
