! Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 9 Friday, October 26, 1984 • Editorials Pay now or later NT officials have decided to send a strong message to NT students—they must either pay debts owed to NT or face the consequences. Beginning next semester, if a student owes $100 or more to NT and does not pay within 10 days of notifica- tion of the debt, he will be withdrawn from the university. Under the present system, students are notified how much money they owe NT and are given 10 days to pay. Students who owe money to financial aid or housing or who have bounced checks are withdrawn from the university 10 days after notification. No action is taken against students who owe money to the library. Student Health Center, NT Police Department or other campus entities until those students attempt to register for the next semester, request a transcript or file for graduation. After 10 days, all debts except those owed to financial aid or housing or those incurred because of a bounccd chec...

The North Texas Daily Page 10 Friday, October 26, 1984 Suiiivan/ ^ s drV ru^l> n°t wet Tush, that's deceptive This fall and last spring semester, the NT lnterfratemity Council has insti- tuted (under heavy pressure from the ad- ministration) a "semi-dry" rush. The rea- sons behind this """J move were: ^ • It would help raise the plummeting pledge grade point average; • It would help combat alcohol abuse; • It would help the rushees see the fra- ternities as they "truly are." 1 disagree with all of these reasons and hope to demonstrate why dry rush is at best ineffectual and at worst detrimental to both the fraternities and the rushees. It was claimed that dry rush would help the pledges academically by giving them a sober week in which to study. In actuality, the pledge GPA for last spring (the first semester of dry rush) fell 0.19 grade points from the previous semester. It didn't work. This did not surprise me. 1 was a public school teacher for two years and I am cur- rently a ...

I , > 4 ? 4 * * Friday, October 26, 1984 The North Texas Daily—Page 11 Letters A thick coating of derision The Oct. 12 and 19 issues of The Dai- ly contained very entertaining letters. I liked Bill Kilmer's attempted rebuttal of my letter from the week before on "safari journalism," but Stephen Christian Hearst's letters on humanism vs. religion arc real gems. Kilmer's letter suggests a severe mis- understanding of what he read in my letter, or else a short-term memory loss. He wildly extrapolates that I've implicat- ed The Daily and its staff by criticizing one of its members (Jerry Boulwarc). Per- haps I've implicated the university and the state of Texas as well. Maybe he was just confused by my "fancy college words" going off "like grenades" in his mind. The rest of his letter gets hung on irrelevant, dangling details, then concludes with the proof that he missed my point entirely by insinuat- ing that 1 seek only easy answers. Do I write that poorly, or is there truth in the...

Page 12—The North Texas Daily Friday, October 26, 1984 Chess: 'You have to get into it as if it were real' Game involves entanglement of complexity, intrigue, traps, pitfalls By JOE STAFFORD Special Writer It is a battle, a war waged between two opponents bent on cutting through enemy lines and assassinating the opposing king. More than just a game, it is an entanglement of com- plexity, intrigue, traps and pitfalls. It is chess. And as NT Chess Club Presi- dent Randy Dacus puts it, it is a microcosm of life. "To win, you have to get into it as if it were real, not as if it were just a game," Dacus said. "If you win, the success is a real one. If you lose, checkmate is in essence a part of your life. You did this, you didn't do this, and a part of your life collapsed." Dacus, Dallas senior, is in his second year as president of the club. He has played chess seriously since the eighth grade. "IT IS ESCAPISM—IT'S like a world all its own and you feel like it is a life you are playing,...

entarv The North Texas Daily Page 2 Tuesday, October 30, 1984 Editorials Media liability Gen. William Westmoreland's libel charge against CBS News is in effect a charge against the news media industry. The libel suit points up charges against the news media in general—that it is too biased, too insensitive and too unaccountable. These are issues some in the media would rather keep closed. Westmoreland has charged that CBS falsely accused him of distorting enemy troop strength to make the Viet nam War seem winnable. CBS broadcast a documentary, "The Uncounted Enemy: A Vietnam Deception," in 1982 that ex- posed what it called a "con- spiracy at the highest levels of American military intelligence to suppress and alter critical intelli- gence on the enemy." Westmoreland contends that his reports were accurate and were not modified to make the war seem winnable. He must prove that the documentary was false and that CBS knew it was false when it was broadcast. There have been libel suits...

Doggett hoped to appeal to conservative Democrats in this cotton-and oil-rich country by putting his campaign on a more positive oote after criticism of negative television ads. "When I talk about some of the issues in this campaign 1 think that it's important that the people of Texas know that 1 talk about some of those issus not because some P.R. firm suggested those were the issues to talk about," Doggett said. "They're the issues that I grew up with." Deflecting criticism that he is too liberal for rural Texas, Doggett said, "We're not interested in either a government of bleeding hearts or a government of no heart at all." Gramm attacks op...

House Bill 72 established the new state laws, he said. The state now requires computer science, speech and regular basic require- ments for education majors, he said. Sandefur said requirements for special and multicultural education courses and background reading in content areas, required by the state and NT. will now be specified by law.

The options include certification in: • A single teaching field with a mini- mum of 36 hours; • Two teaching fields with at least 24 hours in each or; • An integrated teaching field with 48 hours. ...

Bobcats defeat Eagles 27-19 Saturday By DEBBIE WILLIS Staff WHter The offense fumbled again, the defense scored again, and the NT football team lost again. The Southwest Texas State Universi- ty Bobcats beat the Eagles 27-19 on a soggy Fouts Field Saturday night in a non-conference game, extending NT's los- ing streak to seven games and making its record I-7. A crowd of 7.HX) watched as Bobcat linebacker Shawn Woods recovered NT starting quarterback Mike Rhone's tum- ble at the NT 24-yard line on the third play of the game. SWTSU quarterback David Longhofer hit running back Pat Franklin for the touchdown just 1:01 into the game. A fumbled snap ruined the Bobcats' extra-point attempt, and SWTSU led 6-0.

Commenta The North Texas Daily Wednesday, October 31, 1984 Editorials Right to life The surgeons in Loma Linda, Calif., who transplanted the heart of a baboon into the body of a 2-week-old girl should be commended and not condemned for what they did, which was to save the life of a little girl known as Baby Fae who otherwise had no chance of survival. Animal-rights activists oppose the operation because, they say, it will not work. If Baby Fae dies, they contend, the baboon will have died in vain. But the animal-rights cause is not helped by people like Javier Burgos, head of a Pasa- dena-based group that opposes animal experiments. On Sunday, he said, "1 hope it doesn't work, because if it doe:;, they'll demol- ish baboons even more than they do now." In other words, Burgos hopes Baby Fae dies because if she lives, other babies will be saved the same way. That would seem to be inconsistent with the philoso- phy that life is sacred. If life is sacred, then it follows that if doctors...

El Page 4—The North Texas Daily Hart: Media stresses image over substance OUR COLLEGE MAN Wednesday, October 31, 1984 By JEF RAY By BARRY MENDELSOHN Daily Reporter The American presidency has been changed by the mass media, because they decide for the citizens what they need from their presidents, said Dr. Roderick Hart of the UT-Austin communications faculty. Hart spoke last week at a lecture spon- sored by the division of interpersonal and public communication. Delegates to the 1984 Democratic Na- tional Convention were primarily con- cerned with their potential presidential candidates' images. Hart said. "THE DELEGATES were like direc- tors from Hollywood using the language of mass media," he said. "They were judging the candidates by using criteria for a media production rather than for a presidency." When one hears the name of a recent president, he said, one immediately re- members a media moment. "The president docs not live in the White House. He lives in our television sets...
