Tuesday, February 24,1981 THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY—PAGE 3 4 < Lucia Victor challenges NT stage Broadway director explains discrimination in female role By JAMES KAUFMANN Staff Writer The stage hums with activity. In the backshop the whir of a buzz saw periodically wails over noisy chatter, the dragging of furniture across the stage and music blaring from a distant radio. From stage left a diminutive woman enters. She strides across the stage in- specting the set, carrying with her an air of undeniable authority. A few students greet her, she waves and strides back across the stage. Before exiting she stops for a moment, does a tiny pirouette and then disappears. She soon walks back on stage and hops from the center of the proscenium to the platform below, assuming a posi- tion and stance much like a captain at the helm of a ship. "Do I have a stage manager here?" she quietly asks, and he immediately ap- pears. "Places for Act I please." Now the stage is quiet. The buzz saw is silenc...

PAGE 4—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Hotels fire up safety to alert consumers NEW YORK (AP) — Until recently, hotel owners and managers were about as eager to talk about Tire as they were to jump ofT the 13th floor. With 118 people killed and hundreds injured in three big hotel fires in recent months, the nation's major hotels are in- stalling sophisticated new safety equip- ment and training hotel workers and guests about what to do in case of fire. Hotel managers say guests do not mention specifically the fires that killed 84 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nev., in November 1980; 26 at StoufTer's Inn in White Plains, N.Y., in December 1980; and eight at the Las Vegas Hilton last week, but it's obviously on their minds at check in.

With the advantage of a I0-point lead, which the Broncos mounted early into the second half. Pan American initiated a ball-control offense with 10 minutes to play. A pressing NT man-to-man defense was unable to force the poised Pan American players to turn over the ball. The Mean Green was forced to foul, and the Broncos calmly sank 20 of 26 free throws to keep the game out of reach. THE WIN BOOSTED the Broncos' record to 17-10, and NT dropped to 14- 12.

Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Wednesday, February 25,1981 Editorials Teacher testing The Texas Senate approved 27-1 Monday a bill by Sen. Ray Farabee, D-Wichita Falls, that would start a teacher competency testing program in Texas in 1982. The bill, which now goes to the House, would give the State Board of Education the authority to devise basic skills tests for stu- dents who are entering teacher education programs and competency tests for college graduates who are trying to obtain teaching certificates. The bill requires two tests for prospective teachers. The first test under the bill would be given to anyone who wants to enter a teaching program at a college or university. That test would cover basic literacy and mastery of the subjects taught in elementary and high schools. After a student completes college and seeks teacher certification, he would take an examination that would measure his mastery of the subject matter he plans to teach.

Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Thursday, February 26,1981 Editorials Housing policy revision The NT Board of Regents is scheduled to consider a proposal Friday to reduce dormitory residency re- quirements from 60 hours to 30 hours. Regent William Jamar, who chairs the Student Af- fairs Committee, said a reduction in residency require- ments would threaten NT's ability to pay off its com- mitments to revenue bonds that were used to construct the dormitories. The bond indebtedness is paid by dor- mitory and food service fees. Housing director Jim Peterson contends that dorm living teaches students discipline, helps new students adjust to university life, provides an educational set- ting and promotes scholarship. Peterson compared grade point averages of 3,106 dorm residents and 6,803 students who lived off- campus in fall 1979. He concluded from his study that dorm residents achieve higher grade point averages than students living off-campus. However, grade point averages fo...
