The North Texas Daily 6 p , WEDNESDAY, MARCH 4, 1981 NORTH TEXAS STATE UNIVERSITY. DENTON. TEXAS 64TH YEAR NO. 80 ♦ ' i i i > t ! ; ■; rrnrn Photo by MARK WILLIAMS KISSING IN THE RAIN—Shielded from a cool rain, Greg Moseley, Garland junior, and Georgia Smith, Mesquite junior, stop for a quick kiss near the University Union. The rain and gusty winds Tuesday were part of the stormy weather that swept across the western and northern areas of Texas. Several tornadoes touched down in west Texas, including one in Lubbock.

Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Wednesday, March 4,1981 Editorial Child abuse increase Reports of sexual abuse to children increased 89 per- cent since 1978, a study for the state Legislature by the Texas Department of Human Resources reports. Results of the study, conducted at the request of the 1979 Legislature, indicate the typical child molester is from 30 to 45 years old, married and employed, and the sexually abused child usually is his daughter. Of the 1,379 cases studied, it was concluded that: • Most child molesters are men. • Nine of 10 sexually abused children were girls. • Incest accounted for slightly more than three- fourths of the cases. • The child's father or stepfather figured in two- thirds of the cases. • The child's biological mother, the non-abusive parent in three-fourths of the cases, knew the child was being molested, but did not try to prevent recurrences of abuse. Frequently, she left the child and the molester alone. • About half the molesters had...

Wednesday, March 4,1981 THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY—PAGE 3 ^Competition' features musical greats Dreyfuss, Irving compete in music set to love story By JAMES KAUFMANN Stiff Writer "The Competition" may well be regarded as the quintessential musical. Though it shares many (perhaps too many) of the traditional MGM movie musical characteristics of boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl, the plot is secondary to the musical dynamics of Beethoven, Chopin, Litzt, Brahms and other musical masters whose works are featured in the film. Therewith lie the movie's primary redeeming qualities. THE FILM focuses on the frustra- tions of six pianists vying for first place in a Los Angeles piano competition. Unlike "The Turning Point," "All That Jazz" or other films featuring inventive and introspective looks at their respec- tive art forms, "The Competition" does not aim for any soul-searching, thought- provoking dramatics. It is essentially a love story set to music, or even more accurately, musi...

PAGE 4—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Union tries for faculty clout to replace ^current neglect' — Wednesday, March 4,1981 By KIM HERLT Daily Reporter Texas United Faculty, a union for col- lege educators, was developed to avoid "exceedingly shabby treatment from the Texas Legislature," Dr. Don Smith of the biology faculty said. "This treatment is neglect, not animosity. This is why we decided on a union. We need more clout with the Legislature," Smith said. Texas United Faculty was established in January of 1980. Smith was elected president of the union at a June 1980 convention in Austin. At the meeting, a charter and constitution were adopted for the union. "WE HAVE already shown that we intend to be aggressive and militant in the defense of academic freedom and other rights of faculty," Smith said. "Unlike some of the other groups, TUF has never admitted administrators into membership and therefore faces no con- flict of interest when it comes to representing a faculty member with a grie...

Two NT students think the elimina- tion of the gun control division would be a mistake and would result in an in- crease in the number of homicides.

fc. • PAGE 6—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Wilderness groups offer trips for credit By HAKKAKA CORDRAY Staff Writer Whitecaps dash against the bow of a sailboat as the passengers struggle to re- tain control. The struggle becomes more intense as waves rise, and the boat comes dangerously near capsizing. Suddenly, the lookout yells "Thar she blows," and the struggle with the wind is forgotten in the flurry to position cameras for a good shot. Shutters click and passengers laugh as a sea lion puts on a show for her audience. An Alaska whale watching safari is one of many courses, some of which can help students earn college credit, offered by the American Wilderness Alliance. Judith Bregman, program coor- dinator for the Wilderness Adventures Program, said, "We believe in education in the field, not just in the classroom. Students can actually go out into the wilderness and learn how to protect the forest from abuse or forest fires. They can learn how to manage the wilder- ness." THE WILDERNE...

Club members agree the new workout room will help increase their perfor- mance bacause there are fewer distrac- tions from non-club members. Concentration is important in weightlifting and outside interference is quite annoying, Tim Jackson, student leader of the club, said. "The new facilty enables us to have a more structured workout," he said. "It is important for the lifter to be in an at- mosphere where he can work out without any distractions."

PAGE 8 THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Decision leaves no ^bitter taste' Resigning Athletic Director aids new staff, looks for job By MARK WELTON Daily Reporter You might expect Andy Everest to be a bitter man. Only one day after head football coach Jerry Moore left NT for Texas Tech University, something unexpected happened to Everest, who then was NT's athletic director. Fred Pole, executive assistant to NT President Frank Vandiver, called Everest into his office. Everest thought the reason for the meeting was to discuss Moore's replacement. Instead, Pole told Everest that he and Vandiver decided to revitalize the struggling NT athletic budget by combining the head football coach's and athletic director's jobs into one position. In other words, Pole was telling Everest to pack his bags. Everest was told he could apply for the combined role, but one gets the impression that Everest was like a couple who had overstayed their welcome at a dinner party, taking yawning hints from a sleepy hostes...

The North Texas Daily THURSDAY. MARCH 5, 1981 NORTH TEXAS STATE UNIVERSITY. DENTON TEXAS 64TH YEAR NO. 81 Peterson predicts no housing change By MIKE WIGGINS Staff Writer NT Housing Director Jim Peterson said Wednes- day it is too early to predict how recent action by the Board of Regents lowering dormitory residency requirements will affect NT housing demands. The board reduced the residency requirements from 60 semester hours to 30 semester hours effec- tive fall 1981. Peterson said although he can't predict the change's effect on dormitory occupancy, he expects an upward trend in housing demand for incoming freshmen to continue. "THE DEMAND over the past few years for uni- versity housing has been increasing and I expect that will stay the same for the incoming freshmen," he said. "But that tells us nothing about the sophomores and freshmen living in the dorms now and whether they will want to stay in the dorms," he said. Peterson said demand for dorm housing may decrease intiall...

Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Thursday, March 5,1981 Editorials Auto import legislation Troubled Chrysler Corp. reported last week it lost more money, $1.71 billion, in one year than any other American company in history. To no one's surprise it broke the $1.54 billion record set by Ford Motor Co. just eight days earlier. General Motors Corp. reported its first profitless year since the Great Depression when it recorded a $763 million loss in 1980, and American Motors Corp. lost $197.5 million last year. Overall, U.S. automakers suffered their worst year in history, losing more than $4.2 billion. The prospects for America's Big Four automakers are not getting any brighter either. U.S. auto industry sales fell 23 percent in the first half of February from their 1980 level. This slump comes in the wake of a 20 percent decline in U.S. auto sales for January and the announcement by Ford Chairman Philip Caldwell that the U.S. auto industry can become extinct if produc- tion cos...

Thirty five years of teaching music theory at NT will end in May for Ott- man. But those 35 years have not been uneventful, in fact, neither has his whole life. College freshmen and sophomore music theory students all over the world know of Ottman. He is the author of nine music theory textbooks.

' 1 Thursday, March 5,1981 THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY-PAGE 5 Economic tactics create U.S.-Japan trade crisis California professor examines effects of contrasting corporate ideologies By MIKE HEVEY Daily reporter Differences in economic policy created a crisis in trade between the United States and Japan, Dr. Chalmers Johnson of the political science faculty at the Univer- sity of California at Berkeley said Tues- day in a lecture at Wooten Hall. Johnson's speech, titled "Japan Inc. — Does it exist?" contrasted differences between the economic workings of Japan and the United Dr. Johnson States. "Both the United States and Japan today are changing their basic orientations and the strains produced by these shifts are enormous." The term Japan Inc. was coined by Boston consultant James C. Abegglen, Johnson said. "Japan Inc. does exist, but it is not nearly as cohesive and integrated as the corporate metaphor implies," he said. "The negative connotations of the term Japan Inc. are apparent i...

The meet originally was scheduled for this weekend, but it was postponed for a week. "I'm glad the meet has been postponed because I need time to practice harder," Smith said. She qualified for the national AIAW meet two weeks ago when she ran the 300-yard dash in 35.9 se- conds at the Louisiana State University Invitational Track Meet. This was the first time Smith ran the 300-yard dash. She usually runs the quarter mile. NT track coach John McKenzie said, "We switched Ella from the quarter to the 300 because she wasn't that close to qualifying, and we decided she had a better chance qualifying in the 300." Smith said she was glad to be running the 300-yard dash at t...

The master of ceremonies encourages the crowd to cheer the women into a subser- vient frenzy that will give them the gumption to do what their supposedly less-intelligent animal descendants sometimes do — wallow in rich, ankle- deep mud. No, these women are not performing for a circus sideshow or freak show. They are participating in the newest craze to hit the "in" disco and urban cowboy scene—women's mud wres- tling. The name of perhaps literally the state's dirtiest sport implies just what happens. Yes, women actually do get body deep into the slimy muck, shimmy- ing and sliding around each other like two serpents around a May Pole. The squish, squash ...

Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Friday, March 6, 1981 Editorials Stronger ethics laws The state Legislature is considering a series of ethics bills that would overhaul and strengthen Texas' weak ethics laws for public officials, a measure that is seriously needed in this state. Through recent news reports the public has become aware that many state officials in Texas use campaign contributions for personal gain after they take office. Such money is placed in accounts innocuously labeled officeholder accounts and used for a variety of pur- poses, from redecorating offices to funding private parties. Currently there are no limits on how much money an official can keep in an officeholder account. Many observers argue that some interest groups and businesses can control state officials by making large contributions to their campaign expense accounts. State officials once in office, they contend, will tend to lean to one particular corporation or lobbying group. Their points are ...

"We found out almost immediately that we work very well together," Mrs. Wells said. "Sharon is very intuitive, and we agreed on how to do the show. She is very good at illuminating my strong acting points." Because the play is limited to a single actress and it is difficult to hold the audience's attention, the produc- tion emphasizes the swings in the character's ...
