PAGE 6—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Tuesday, April 7,1981 Housing programs lose federal funding Because of an increase in the number of cities under 50,000 population apply- ing for Department of Housing and Urban Development funds, Denton was denied $1.5 million in requested funds from the department and will be forced to cut back on existing housing programs, City Planning Director Jeff Meyer said. "We will have to end housing rehabilitation, code enforcement and demolition of older houses for one year," Meyer said. "There will be no capital improvements in the low-income areas for one year as well." The department uses a rating system to determine which cities receive funding. Each city is assigned points based on the city's per capita income, minority population and the percentage of city contracts awarded to minority businesses. "This year we received 529 points, and the last city to receive funding got 559 points," Meyer said. "This was Denton's highest point total ever. We've receiv...

Hocking captured first place in the women's 1,500-meter run in 4:30.5, edg- ing Linda Goen of UCLA, who is generally recognized as the best in the nation at that distance. NT track coach John McKenzie said, "It was extremely windy, and everyone just kind of sat back and waited to kick. Leana just outkicked them. It came down to a two-person racc with everyone far behind Leana and Goen. It was a tremendous achievement for Leana to beat the best in the nation." The victory was the fourth straight for Hocking in the 1,500 meters. In men's competition, Lynn Howe placed fifth and set a NT record with a time of 52.04 in the 400-meter hurdles.

• Commentary The North Texas Daily Page 2 Wednesday, April 8,1981 Editorials Patient rights bill In a compassionate and humane act, U.S. District Judge Barefoot Sanders approved a proposal to assure mental patients of rights that previously have not been enforced. The plan is called a mental patient's bill of rights and resulted from settlement of a suit filed by relatives and legal guardians of eight mental patients, who sued Texas Depart- ment of Mental Health and Mental Retarda- tion officials and eight state mental hospital superintendents. Included in the settlement is a requirement for state mental health officials to seek treat- ment for Texas patients within the com- munity in which they reside when possible. Another requirement is for mental health in- stitutions to comply with federal and state health and safety codes. The settlement statement calls for: • Minimizing restrictive settings to better accommodate patients' needs. • Preventing a mentally retarded patient from b...

Prokofiev's piece was a musical t.v pression of the warriors of Russia, Davidovici said. The sonata was written in 1938, and he said it depicts "those dark years with a rough vitality. "This is the greatest of Prokofiev's works. It is a difficult piece and is seldom performed." The "Kreutzer Sonata" is written like a concerto for two solo instruments, Davidovici said. "It has the brillance of a concerto without the orchestral ac- companiment." In 1803, Beethoven was commissioned to write a composition for violinist George Bridgetower for his debut in Vienna, Austria. By the time Bridgetower was to perform, Beethoven had finished only one movement and only the violin part of...

Wednesday, April 8,1981 THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY—PAGE 5 Denton crisis center offers refuge for teen-agers Emergency shelter utilizes secondhand furnishings, firsthand assistance By KIRK C OUC H Daily Reporter The ramshackle gray, frame house on North Locust Street has seen better days. Inside, the battered furnishings give the rooms a secondhand look. However, the appearance is not what matters. The house is filled with a sense of comradery and love. It is the home of the Denton Area Crisis Center, Youth Services Center. The crisis center is a temporary emergency shelter for youths, ages 13- 17. The center provides food, shelter and ciunseling for residents for 30 days.

In September 1978, the center began operating full-time as a youth center. The next month...

Wednesday, April 8,1981 THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY-PAGE 7 Sportscope Sports psychology: A brave, new world By KEVIN "DOC " SHAY Staff Writer Ever since some bored human be- ings started the first sports before recorded history, these games have undergone much metamorphosis. What began as a means of survival became entertainment and fame- enriching opportunities. What start- ed as unique ideas of passing away the binding instrument of time e- volved into a coldhearted business and went full circle back to a means of survival for some. Such is sport, a game to some and a way of life to others. In these high- powered technological times, even sports haven't escaped the so-called comforts and advances of the moder- nized world. The highly competitive nature of American society brings about an eternal search for that ever- present edge over other players and teams. One of the first technological ad- vances in the modern-day sports world was the introduction of com- puters, the most famous exa...

"In the Sam Houston loss, we had an opportunity to win in the final inning with the bases loaded. So I was pleased with our effort in the first game. We played well against McNeese State in a 10-inning garre " Janice Williams, Denton freshman, pitched the first game, and Bobbye Cot- ton, Azle senior, pitched the second.

The North Texas Daily THURSDAY, APRIL 9, 1981 NORTH TEXAS STATE UNIVERSITY. DENTON. TEXAS 64TH YEAR NO. 97 Senate equalizes faculty representation By R. DANIEL CAVAZOS Daily Reporter The Faculty Senate approved an amendment Wednesday to limit schools, colleges, departments and divisions to a maximum of two senate representatives effective Jan. I, 1982. The intent of the amendment, ap- proved by a 21 -13 vote, was to ensure that large departments, such as business, English and history, do not dominate faculty representation in the senate and to encourage more representation from smaller departments. Dr. James Tanner of the English faculty said the limit on representatives would "guarantee more departments will be represented. Under the old system, a number of departments were not represented in the senate." Dr. Clovis Morrisson of the political science faculty said an imbalance in representation has created a lack of con- fidence in the senate among faculty members, which he said thi...

Commentary The North Texas Daily n Page 2 Thursday, April 9,1981 Editorials Nursing home reform They wanted to send the world a message: all is not well and good in Texas' nursing homes. The 12 members of a Galveston County grand jury certainly succeeded when they handed up 23 indictments for murder, including the first murder indictments brought against a U.S. corporation. Last week, the grand jury indicted Autumn Hills Convalescent Centers Inc., Texas' fourth largest nurs- ing home chain, and eight employees of the Autumn Hills nursing home in Texas City, including the cor- poration's director for quality control, on eight counts of murder. The grand jurors' indictments had repercussions that were felt from Texas City to Austin to Washington, D.C. Not only had they uncovered cases of starving patients, improper dispensing of medica- tion, widespread failure to comply with doctors' orders and patient neglect, but also they revealed the laxity of nursing home inspection and licensin...

(AP) —On the eve of its maiden voyage, the test shuttle Columbia was poised for flight Thursday on moon-launch pad 39A as an untried ship of the future ready to return Americans to space. Two astronauts, who will stake their lives today on the shuttle's success, went to sleep at midafternoon Thursday after a final telephone farewell to their families. Relaxed and primed to fly, they took a call from Vice President George Bush and told him they are ready to go and that "skies are clear." At the same time, the countdown went into its climactic hours. "I think we're going to go," launch direc- dor George Page said. "I think we're going to make it." Liftoff was set for 43 minutes past dawn, at 5:50 a.m. CST. John Young and Robert Crippen, who say they are "140 percent trained" for their two- day, 6 1/2-hour f...

Commentary Editorial The North Texas Daily Friday, April 10,1981 Easing Polish tensions Tensions in Poland appear to have lessened this week, giving the people in Poland and the rest of the world a chance to breathe easier. Soviet President Leonid Brezhnev announced earlier this week that Poland's Communist Party could handle its own af- fairs and that after three weeks the Warsaw Pact maneuvers would end officially. The exercises involved troops from the Soviet Union, East Germany, Czechoslovakia and Poland. They were the longest Soviet bloc military exercises since the 1968 Warsaw Pact intervention in Czechoslovakia and were believed to involve at least 25,000 troops. Unfortunately, the easing of the conflict does not mean the Polish situation is resolved, and all parties directly involved with the conflict should remember to evaluate their words and actions in the immediate future. Although Brezhnev has indicated a reluctance to in- tervene in Polish affairs at this time, observe...
