The North Texas Dally Page 2 Wednesday, October 17, 1984 Editorials Ringing support Telephones began ringing in the houses of trackable NT alumni Monday as NT's annual Phonothon got under way this year. Members of NT-40, a campus service organization, were the first to reach out and touch alumni, hoping to talk precious dollars out of alumni pockets and into the coffers of their good old alma mater. The money raised during the Phonothon, which contin- ues through Nov. 13, will help fund various campus programs. The success of the Phonothon is an important factor in the success of NT. The Phonothon is one of the larger fund-raising efforts of the university, and it directly bene- fits NT. The Phonothon, which was started in 1982, is spon- sored by the Alumni and Advancement Center. As in the past, volunteers from various student organizations are needed to help phone alumni and ask them if they want to donate money to NT. The money raised during the Phonothon goes into a general fund...

Claude Pepper, chairman of the House Select Committee on Aging, on Tues- day accused Republican U.S. Senate candidate Phil Gramm of doing more to reduce Social Securi- ty benefits than any other congressman.

Pepper also recalled that Gramm voted against a resolution by Rep Jim Wright, D-Texas, which stated thai the House urged necessary steps be taken to make certain that Social Security bene- fits wouldn't be cut for those currently receiving them.

The North Texas Dally Editorials Thursday, October 18, 1984 Minority recruiting NT officials arc currently working to hire a minority recruiter. It is hoped that the hiring of a new recruiter will enhance NT's efforts to attract minority students. It's not that NT's current minority enrollment is any- thing to be ashamed of. NT's student population is 82 percent white, which is better than the 87 percent at Tex- as Tech. the 89 percent at Texas A&M and the 94 per- cent at Southern Methodist University. NT can even hold its own with schools like the univer- sities of Texas at Austin and Arlington, which have stu- dent bodies that are 79 and 78 percent white, respectively. At first glance, NT doesn't look too good compared to the University of Houston central campus, which is only 73 percent white, until one considers that U of H is smack in the middle of the nation's fourth largest city and is located in a section of town that is primarily black. The difference is that NT activel...

Plays at 7 and 9:30 p.m. today and Friday in the Lyceum in the University Union. Admission is $1 with NT ID. "The Dead Zone" is not the kind of film you might expect from a movie based on a Stephen King novel; but then "The Dead Zone" is not a typical King novel. The emphasis of the book is more on the thoughts and feelings of John Smith than on the blood and gore (hat usually typify King creations. AND WHILE THE movie does manage to squeeze in every drop of blood and gore it can manage, it is one of the better adaptions of a King novel.

NT kickers lose to Mustangs 4-1 By KF.N CURRIN Staff Writer The NT socccr team lost to the South- ern Methodist University Mustangs 4-1 Tuesday night in what coach Richard Lowe said was one of the worst perfor- mances of the season by his team. Lowe said. "I can't take anything away from SMU: they were playing great, and we obviously weren't. But, we did make a lot of mental errors that we don't nor- mally make, and l think it's due to the fact that we were playing our sixth game in 12 days. The whole team was pretty tired." Lowe said because the team was play- ing so many games in such a short peri- od of time, they didn't have enough prac- tice time to work on conditioning. NT substituted quite a bit in the second half. SMU constantly beat them to the loose ball and, more importantly, to the goal. "We weren't physically or mentally sharp and as the game wore on it began to show. It's not the players' fault because they don't make the schedule. I do," Lowe said. SMU, with 12 shots ...
