PAGE 6—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Tuesday, March 24,1981 BritisHHeader faces of opposition, own party LONDON (AP) —Two years after her sweep to victory, Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher appears threatened from within her own party by a simmering Conservative revolt and by a new opposition party gain- ing ground in public opinion polls. "A determined effort is being made by a minority of Tories at West- minster to undermine Margaret Thatcher and secure her replacement as party leader, if possible, before the next election," Conservative Parlia- ment member George Gardiner, a Thatcher loyalist, said. Gardiner's remarks this weekend were the first public reference by a Conservative to a rebellion within the ruling party. The revolt appears to be fueled by the high showing in public opinion polls of Labor Party moderates who recently broke ranks and plan to launch a new, as yet unnamed, social democratic party on Thursday. The Labor defectors hope to ap- peal to a constituency between the le...

Tuesday, March 24,1981 THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY-PAGE 7 Beach Bums of the Week EDITOR'S NOTE: This week's Sports Jerks of the Week awards have been renamed Beach Bums of the Week awards due to the nature and seriousness of the vile acts committed against society's sun bum set. The Beach Bums of the Week awards go to the legislative pomps responsible for the flow of sacred, crucifying acts that these perpetrators deem necessary to protect the south Texas beaches against the corrupt ill wills of the younger generation and thus save that area for the senior citizen jet set and the oil companies. First, there was the all hallowed bill to raise the legal drinking age from 18 to 19, which is a prime example of enacting a bill just for the perpetrators' justification of their positions. This law hinders the youngsters, most of whom have drank liquor since their early teen-age years anyway, and disregards the primary responsible parties, the businesses that sell the joy juice to minors to incre...

PAGE 8—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Tuesday, March 24,1981 Tyler promotes Pietrosky in reorganization shuffle By STEVE WILSON Staff Writer NT athletic director and head football coach Bob Tyler named part-time assistant football coach Bill Pietrosky as administrative assistant Monday in a move to reorganize the athletic department. Pietrosky's appointment comes in the wake of the resignation of associate athletic director Wayne Ray. Ray's letter of resignation, dated March 2, was made public March 14. "I just felt that this was a good time to take this step," Ray said. "I know Bob has had this reorganiza- tion plan in mind, and I felt that this way there would be one less position that he would have to worry about." Tyler said the resignation was not a result of the department restructuring. "I think Wayne has some business interests and this was a career move for him." The 1981-82 athletic budget, which was submitted to NT President Frank Vandiver, the Athletic Council and the NT Board of...

\ < I \ The North Texas Daily WEDNESDAY, MARCH 25, 1981 NORTH TEXAS STATE UNIVERSITY. DENTON. TEXAS 64TH YEAR NO. 88 ' < Police jurisdiction at NT hinges on Legislature By MIKE WIGGINS Staff Writer The controversy over who has law en- forcement jurisdiction on city streets running through the NT campus would be cleared if the Legislature approves two bills to give NT police concurrent jurisdiction with Denton police. The jurisdiction dispute surfaced in December I979 when City Attorney C.J. Taylor told the City Council he thought a 1970 ordinance granting NT police concurrent jurisdiction on city streets running through or adjacent to campus was unconstitutional. STATE REP. Jim Horn, R-Denton, submitted a bill to the House that would give NT police concurrent jurisdiction with Denton police in patrolling NT streets. The bill was referred to the House Higher Education Committee, but a hearing on the bill has not been scheduled. A companion bill that would affect NT and TWU was ...

> Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Wednesday, March 25,1981 Editorials Federal spending In a move intended to expose the Reagan administration's plans for sweeping cuts in federal spending as nothing more than cold, calculated economic blows to America's poor. Democratic congressmen will hold a series of hearings during the next three weeks. The hearings follow a frenzied week of ac- tion by the Senate Budget Committee and a Sunday announcement by Budget Director David Stockman that he will seek even deeper cuts to balance the federal budget by 1984. The Senate Budget Committee completed its review of President Ronald Reagan's proposed budget last week and approved $2.3 billion in cuts beyond what Reagan proposed. Ranking Democrats on the House Educa- tion and Labor Committee scheduled the hearings because they believe the public is misinformed about the ramifications of Reagan's proposals to slash education programs and assistance to the poor. A forum such as the one sche...

These invitations, he said, are a direct result of placing third out of more than 100 contestants in the International Competition for Excel- lence in the Performance of American Music last September. Davidovici received invitations from the Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and Baltimore symphony orchestras. In addition to his most recent victory, Davidovici also has won the Naumberg Competition, the Flaggler Award and the Montreal International Violin Competition, and has performed in con- certs on four continents. Competitions are beneficial to keep one's skills honed, he said, but one does not become an artist from competition alone. "Many people can't...

I PAGE 4—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Wednesday, March 25,1981 i W< Mail brings late letter from friend DALLAS (AP) —A Dallas woman received a bizarre reminder of inflation when she opened her mailbox to find a 10-cent letter mailed to her two years ago by a now-deceased Fort Worth ac- quaintance. The letter to Mrs. W.W. Lawton was from Mrs. Bob Phillips, informing her of Phillips' death four years earlier. "I saw the return address of Mrs. Bob Phillips, and I thought why am I getting a letter from her when I know that she's been dead two years?," Mrs. Lawton said. Then she noticed the 10-cent stamp and the two postmarks the letter bore. One was dated March 13, 1981, the other nearly six years earlier. "It looks like it was just mailed. It wasn't yellowed, dirty or even crumpled," Mrs. Lawton said. The cost of mailing a first class letter increased to 18 cents Sunday. It was the fifth increase in postal rates in 10 years.

PAGE 6—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Wednesday, March 25,1981 i nks find grass greener y Canadian gas pumps By the Associated Press Dollar-a-gallon gasoline isn't the only thing drawing Americans across the border to Canada. The grass is also greener on the Canadian side for those who want to cure a backache, get cut-rate dentures or save a bundle having a baby. As the Yanks stream north, pass- ing them in the southbound lanes are Canadians in search of X-rated movies, cheap appliances or easy abortions on the American side. They are all taking advantage of a unique symbiosis between two na- tions that goes back a century and a half, when they settled a series of ma- jor territorial squabbles. More than 70 million border cross- ings are made each year, with heaviest traffic in such spots as Niagara Falls and Detroit where American motorists lately have been filling up at Canadian stations for gasoline up to 50 cents a gallon cheaper than at home. Calais, Maine, and St. Stephen, New Brunswic...

■ Wednesday, March 25,1981 !( ] # * r ti Texas Sports Hall of Fame in Grand Prairie is scheduled to open May 23 Texas sports hall opens in May By T.G. SPEARS Special Writer Considering the bumper crop of sports heroes yielded by the Lone Star State, it appears only natural that someone would build a monument— and someone has. The $4.5 million Texas Sports Hall of Fame will officially open its doors to the public May 23, completing a 32-year planning and fund-raising effort by the Texas Sports Writers Association. Plans for the hall first began in 1949 at the association's biennial convention. Beaumont Enterprise sports editor Thad Johnson moved that the association honor Texas' most outstanding athletes. The motion carried unanimously, and baseball's Tris Speaker became the first sportsman enshrined into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame two years later. The site for the hall in Grand Prairie was dedicated in a novel ground- breaking ceremony last February. Pass- ing up the usual shovel...

Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Thursday, March 26,1981 Editorials Guns, but no butter At a time when the Reagan administration is slashing social programs in an effort to balance the federal budget by 1984, President Ronald Reagan is seeking to increase the Defense Department's share of the federal pie. The Defense Department's budget this year is $142.7 billion, which comprises 25 percent of the federal budget. Reagan is proposing to increase that to 32.4 percent of the federal budget by 1984. The irony lies in a recent report by the General Ac- count Office that the Defense Department is the single most wasteful federal agency. Defense Department of- ficials acknowledged the Army and Navy made no at- tempt to change practices that were wasting $1 billion annually two years ago. In addition, Congress is expected to approve the ex- penditure of more than $237 million this year in military aircraft that the Pentagon neither requested nor wants. For the past four years, Congr...

PAGE 4—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Thursday, March 26,1981 Ecologist: Shortsightedness dooms state economy By TERRY HASKER Daily Reporter Within the next 30 years, shortsighted government policies on environmental issues will cause irreparable damage to the Texas economy, Dr. Pete Gunter of the philosophy faculty said. Gunter is a former president of the Big Thicket Association, which led a successful drive to make the area in East Texas a national preserve. He wrote a book on the forest titled "Big Thicket" and has served on state committees for water development and coastal manage- ment. The Reagan administration's zeal for ending federal controls combined with the Texas tradition of rapid unplanned growth will allow some people to earn large sums of money in the short run, but the long run of 10, 20 or 30 years will weaken the economy, Gunter said. "As you deplete your farm land, your lignite, your water supplies, your fisheries and tourist potential, you can't expect the economic situ...

"The Core Curriculum is simply a group of courses all students are re- quired to take no matter what their ma- jor," Stephens said. The courses are a necessary part of a student's growth as a human being, rather than simply as a professional, he said. Stephens, who made extensive studies of Charles Darwin, said he is using Darwin studies to bring humanities and science together. "I began looking at him (Darwin) as an essayist."

PAGE 6—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Athletes differ on locker room issue Male, female reporters face touchy situation for interviews By DEE DEE THOMASSON Daily Reporter Female reporters in men's locker rooms and male reporters in women's dressing rooms. There is no consensus of opinion on how to solve the problem, if, indeed it is a problem. Despite significant gains in equality in recent years, women still are trying to es- tablish an equal position in the sports arena. One issue that has produced argu- ments is whether female reporters should be allowed in men's locker rooms. Jimmy Gales, NT assistant basketball coach, said, "Most men would be too bashful, and they would prefer that women are not in the room when they are dressing. I don't think women should have this right." Not everyone agrees with Gales. Pat Hicks, Houston sophomore and NT basketball player, said, "I think it would be great if women reporters came into the locker room. I wouldn't be embar- rassed, and I might make a n...

TEXAS 64TH YEAR NO. 90 Smith suspends hearings against NT professor By CAROL RUST Staff Writer Grievance procedures in complaints against Dr. Ray Johnson of the psy- chology faculty, filed by two graduate students, were delayed Wednesday by Dr. Howard Smith, vice president for academic affairs. The complaints were filed jointly on July 22 by Janet Ellis, Denton graduate student, and Dr. Jeanne Cofer, then a graduate student. They presented the complaints to Dr. Robert Toulouse, dean of graduate school, who referred then back to the psychology department saying it was a departmental matter. Ms. Ellis and Mrs. Cofer allege that Johnson harassed them during their tenures as graduate psychology students. Smith confirmed that he suspended the grievance procedures, but declined further comment because the issue in- volves personnel. "The memorandum I sent to Dean (Jim) Pearson (dean of the Coll...

Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Friday, March 27,1081 Editorials Violent acts in Atlanta Recent events in Atlanta have shown how far anger and frustration can push people toward acts of violence. Displeased with the lack of success police authorities have had in solving the murders of 20 black children and the disappearance of two others, black ac- tivists attempted to start an independent armed patrol to defend black families in an Atlanta neighborhood from the senseless violence. Police arrested four of these activists on charges of carrying a gun without a license and carrying a gun in a crowded area. There were minor verbal conflicts as angry blacks jeered at police and temporarily held a police car hostage. Fortunately, there were no acts of major violence between angry demonstrators and the police. Although the intentions of these self-styled protec- tors of the black community may be justified, their methods are not. Carrying weapons in a situation already tense with ...
