" The gamepiece has been one of the most neglected branches of Dutch still life," Sulli- van said.

rts v'm ASU defeats Eagles 14-9 By MICHAEL WETCHENSKY Staff Writer Four turnovers in the second half ruined an impressive offensive showing by the NT football team as the Arkansas State University Indians defeated NT I4-9 in Jonesboro. Ark., Saturday night. "We did move the ball offensively with a little more consistency than we have all year." NT head coach Corky Nelson said. "That was the bright spot. We had too many turnovers in the second half, and that's what ended up beating us. It really was the difference in the ball game." ASU coach Larry Lacewell said. "We forced the turnovers. If the defense didn't play the second half, we were a beaten football team. We were very fortunate to have won." The loss gave the Eagles a l -4 record for the season, 0-3 in Southland Confer- ence play. It was ASU's first SLC game. Nelson said, "The three conference games we have lost, we have lost by the sum total of 14 points. That means you have a chance to win all the way." The Indians scored f...

Peter H. Vigor of the Soviet Studies Research Centre at the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst, England, said that in some ways Soviet attitudes are a mir- ror image of our own. "The Soviets believe that since they are the mortal enemy of capitalism and that the Soviet socialist form of society must ultimately triumph, then the capi- talists must be seeking an opportunity to stop communism in the Soviet Union and snuff out the revolutionary virus they see all around the world.

ommentary The North Texas Dally Page 2 Wednesday, October 10, 1984 Editorials Parents' Weekend This weekend is Parents' Weekend at NT and the Stu- dent Activities Center and the Housing Office are spon- soring various events to show off the university to students' parents. Although specifically aimed at the parents of dorni students, all parents are invited to attend. The center and office are to be commended for this attempt to make parents more aware of the events and people who influence their children's lives for four years or more. College-age students often have a difficult time communi- cating with their parents. While a single weekend of together- ness cannot bridge a lack of communication that has de- veloped over several years of differing opinions over a host of issues, it can give families common subjects to discuss. Parents who don't understand the problems inherent in dorm life may be able to relate a little better after talking with the director of the Housing Office....

The number of openings for men varied from hall to hall. McGuire said because JMT has more female students enrolled and living in the dorms, there are more spaces available for men in the NT dorms.
