The North Texas Daily THURSDAY, MARCH 12, 1981 NORTH TEXAS STATE UNIVERSITY, DENTON. TEXAS 64TH YEAR NO. 85 \ Attorney questions liability Accident prompts re-evaluation of safety procedures By MIKE WIGGINS Staff Writer University Attorney Richard Rafes said Wednesday he does not think NT will he held liable for an accident in which an NT student severed the tips of three fingers while working in the University Union Arts and Crafts Center Tuesday. Mark Adams, St. Paul, Minn., junior, was us- ing a radial arm saw to cut mitered corners on wooden frames in which to mount stained glass when he accidentally severed his finger tips. Denton paramedics took Adams to Westgate Hospital, but doctors were unable to reattach the finger tips. Rafes said, under the Texas Tort Claims Act, NT could be held liable only if the saw is defec- tive. "Assuming there was no defect in the machine, the university is not liable. Our infor- mation seems to show that there were no defects." Rafes said he does...

Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Thursday, March 12,1981 Editorial Anti-abortionists Now that Ronald Reagan's cabinet ap- pointees have settled to their tasks and public attention has been drawn to proposed budget cuts and U.S. military aid to El Salvador, anti-abortionists have been mak- ing quiet inroads into federal policy. Reagan named Dr. Everett Koop, a staunch anti-abortionist, deputy assistant secretary of the Health and Human Services Department. Marjory Mecklenburg, another strident anti-abortionist, is awaiting clearance to head the Office of Adolescent Pregnancy Programs, which grants aid to teen-age mothers and advises them on birth control. Koop, who was a board member of the National Right to Life Committee and Americans United for Life, is in line for the position of surgeon general, which would give him control over programs administered by the Center for Disease Control, the Population Research Center and the National Institute of Health, all targets of anti...

Thursday, March 12,1981 THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY-PAGE 3 / MOYSE MAGIC—Flutist Marcel Moyse visited campus Tuesday and Wednesday to conduct four woodwind master classes. Moyse, 91, is perhaps the last survivor of the artistic explosion in France around the turn of the century, making him a direct link with 19th century artists and musicians. Moyse is accredited with introducing a new approach to music that stresses the dramatic and expressive limits of wind instru- ment playing, notably vibrato.

PAGE 4—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Thursday, March 12,1981 Warm days bring snakes outside of nocturnal habits Artwork by MARK ANTONUCCIO Snakes emerge from winter idleness to sun in spring By JERRY PRICKETT Staff Writer Energetic nature lovers often use the first sign of nice weather to get outdoors and enjoy the sun and scenery they missed during the winter. However, most do not count on en- countering animals of the serpentine persuasion. With spells of warm weather, snakes crawl out from nature's woodwork to sun themselves. DR. EDGAR Schlueter of the biology faculty said the unusually mild winter in Texas so far probably will induce snakes to come out to sun earlier than usual. "Most of the time snakes are noctur- nal animals, but in the spring they come out during the day. The wet, damp weather we've had recently will affect them too," he said. The snakes will want to get outside when it is sunny to dry out, he said. "Their food — frogs and lizards and such — will be out so they may b...

Fraternities and Sororities joined to per- form musical numbers for the annual Greek event. By JAMES PEAK Daily Reporter The use of activated charcoal to remove organic chemicals from water eventually may become the first step in the water purification process, Dr. Karl Johansson of the biology faculty said. Conventional water treatment is a one-step process, he said. An En- vironmental Protection Agency study determined that organic compounds formed during the conventional process cause cancer in animals. The conventional treatment uses chlorine to kill disease-causing bacteria in water. Johansson, Dr. Kenneth Dickson of t...

PAGE 6—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Thursday, March 12,1981 Russia says military pact to hold drills WARSAW, Poland (AP) — The Soviet Union and Poland announced Tuesday joint Warsaw Pact military exercises will begin in Poland this month. The announcement followed a one- hour strike in Lodz, the first major work stoppage in more than a month in this Communist nation beset by economic and labor troubles. The Polish news agency PAP said the exercises will take place in Poland, East Germany, Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union in the second half of March. Some Western observers said the exercises were expected at this time of the year, but U.S. State Department officials expressed concern last week about reports of such maneuvers. A threat of Soviet military in- tervention in Poland has overshadowed the Polish crisis since late last year. Perry focuses lecture on ERA implications TP Mi i.

It's easy to look back now while the pain is eased with the gentle passage of the grandfather clock and say, "So, we lost a stupid intramural basketball game. So what? I mean, a hundred years from now who's going to care whether we won or lost, right?" But the fact remains that while I was playing, those games were the biggest thing on my mind. All that talk about how it's just an intramural game didn't sink into my thick skull for a reason I have yet to fully understand. Maybe it goes back to my upbringing. As a young whippersnapper, sports con- ...

The North Texas Daily FRIDAY, MARCH 13, 1981 NORTH TEXAS STATE UNIVERSITY. DENTON. TEXAS 64TH YEAR NO. 86 " Krueger to assist NT in world energy study By MIKE WIGGINS Staff Writer Former U.S. Rep. Bob Krueger of New Braunfels said Thursday he will research domestic and international energy related areas while working as a resident fellow here. Krueger, former ambassador-at-large and coordinator for Mexican affairs in the Carter administration, said he was sought by several colleges and accepted the part-time appointment with NT if offered a program that suited his needs. KRUEGER'S appointment, which ends Aug. 31, pays $18,500. Because the appointment is not a regular faculty position, his salary will come from in- stitutional reserves rather than faculty salary accounts. Krueger said he will use the six-month appointment to write, research, give lec- tures and to "grow upon the strengths of the students and faculty to shape my own ideas." Krueger does not plan to teach while at NT. ...

Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Friday, March 13,1981 Fr Editorials Reagan defense plan Two of the more unfortunate ironies in President Ronald Reagan's young administration are its proposals to cut social program spending on a level un- precedented in history and to increase defense outlays at a rate similarly unprecedented in history. Late last week, Americans learned that Reagan's defense plan calls for larger defense budgets that would use nearly $ 1.3 trillion during the next five years, if ap- proved by Congress. The first jump in defense spending would be a 16 percent increase between now and 1982, totaling $32.6 billion. To give a general idea of the magnitude of the in- creases, one can consider that the $400 million spent on shipbuilding would increase to $3.8 billion in 1982, the $700 million that goes to personnel in salaries would go to $2.8 billion, the $2 billion for research and development of new equipment would increase to $13.7 billion and the $2.8 billion...

Billboards display prospective winners. Television and radio commercials tempt the public to find out more about each nominee. When people read the newspaper, they find the issues and views of each of the nominees discussed. No, this is not a political election. It is the 53rd annual Academy Awards. "The time between the nominations and the announcement of the winners is a circus period," Dr. Don Staples of the radio/television/film faculty said.

PAGE 4—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Friday, March 13,1981 Diapers alter dads' intentions; moms perform *dirty' work ... COLLEGE STATION (AP) — New fathers are talking more about participa- tion in the daily care of their infants, but when diapers are wet, it still is mom who does more of the changing, a Texas A&M researcher said. Dr. Candida Lutes of the psychology faculty at Texas A&M conducted a study of parental attitudes toward their babies both before and after birth. She and graduate student Jacquyn Walters studied infant behavior at birth and its implications for parenting. Expectant fathers, she said, expressed a great deal of interest in their babies. They said they planned to change diapers, bathe and feed the babies. After a baby is born, most fathers do not perform at the rate they had an- ticipated, she said. "Checking back with the parents after the baby was two months old, we found that 81 percent of the fathers were changing wet diapers and that 68 percent were chan...

I feel so worthless. There's no meaning left in my life anymore. I can't eat. I have trouble sleeping at night." These are common complaints of someone suffering from depression. According to a 1980 study by the National Institute of Mental Health, one of five Americans experiences symptoms of depression. About 2.4 million Americans suffer severe, clinical depres- sion. "Depression is a hard thing to under- stand," Dr. Joel Butler of the psy- chology faculty said. "You can never really know what it is and when it will go beyond tolerance." THE MOST common signs of depres- sion are denial of depression, gloomy moods, an increasing number of com- plaints and feelings of guilt, often as- sociated with anger, he said.

The Texas coast long has been a well-known vacation spot for students, snow birds and Yankees from beyond the Red River. Galveston, Corpus Christi and Port Aransas provide vacationers with contemporary outlets to the sea, and the Texas seashore accom- modates rugged individuals or parties in search of coastal paradise without commercialism. A large percentage of student tourists pass like illegal aliens through the northern seaside bungalows on their way to the great beach at South Padre.

"There was no women's golf program at the University of South Africa," Copeman said. "So I knew if I wanted to continue playing competitive golf and get a college education, I would have to come to the United States." Copeman, a sophomore, is the No. I player on the NT women's golf team. She said she applied to several Southwest schools, including NT, after her freshman year at the University of South Africa. "My final choices were NT, Oklahoma and Arizona (universities), because I wanted to play in a warm climate.

A time for fun and relaxation away from the mental and psychological grinds of "The Road to Graduation." A time to get away and let off some of the proverbial steam that has been building up inside since being taken hostage in January. Don't believe sports do not play a large role in the spring break release. For your reference. The Daily is releasing a list of sporting things to do during spring break: • Attend a woman's mud wrestling spectacle, or better yet, hold your own mud wrestling tournament in your neighborhood awarding free mud packs to champions in each weight class. • Join the "in" crowd and hustle on down to South Padre Island where everyone who's anyone undoubtedly will be. Sporting events on the coast will include such delights as observing nuclear submarine races on the Gulf that take place every night, partaking in a Jacques Cousteau deep- sea adventure complete w...

' i The North Texas Daily TUESDAY, MARCH 24, 1981 NORTH TEXAS STATE UNIVERSITY, DENTON. TEXAS 64TH YEAR NO. 87 Council to study fair housing law By DAVII) WRIGHT Daily Reporter Denton City Council will consider adopting an equal opportunity hous- ing ordinance at 7 p.m. today so the city can receive federal funding from the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Jeff Meyer, director of planning and community development, said if the ordinance is adopted, Denton could receive more federal money. "It needs to comply with guidelines set by Housing and Urban Development," he said. "That will help the city receive funds from Com- munity Development Block grants when HUD evaluates applications for federal aid." Another reason for the ordinance is to provide equal opportunity hous- ing, but the main emphasis is on federal funding, Meyer said. "We compete with cities with pop- ulations of 50,000 or under in Texas and New Mexico for funding. HUD uses a rating formula to determine who g...

Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Tuesday, March 24,1981 <■ > Editorials Unsubstantiated rumor The report of my death is somewhat exaggerated, wrote Mark Twain. In the same fashion, somehow a rumor was started that Vice President George Bush had been shot late at night in February. An article concerning the rumor was published in the Washington Post. Even though the newspaper said in its conclusion that the article of the shooting, titled "Anatomy of a Washington Rumor," had no basis whatsoever, the paper published the rumor, which has the effect of giv- ing it credence. The job of a newspaper is to present facts, not rumors. Of course, stories presented in papers are not always 100 percent accurate, but no responsible paper should publish unsubstantiated rumors. According to the rumor. Bush was shot after leaving the home of a friend late one night, perhaps in a holdup. The article probably was interesting to a lot of peo- ple, but that is not the major criterion for wh...

Byrne says she and her husband are moving from their posh Gold Coast apartment to live in another high-rise: a crime-plagued, gang- infested public housing project called Cabrini Green. The mayor says she will live there for "as long as it takes to clean it up." In a nine-week period this year, 10 people were killed, at least 35 were wounded and more than SO firearms were confiscated at Cabrini Green. Deliverymen, cab drivers and many citizens avoid Cabrini Green, a sprawling, 70-acre housing project on the Near North Side that is home to 15,000 people. The mayor announced Saturday night that she and her husband and political adviser, Jay McMullen, will move temporarily to Cabrini Green within two weeks. Mrs. Byrne's announcement, which apparently took police by sur- prise, said: "I really can't believe that 10 blocks from me is any different from the pe...
