I PAGE 4—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Friday, April 10,1981 Student festival features 10 class films Saturday By PATTI KERUTIS Daily Reporter Ten student films will be featured Saturday in the 1981 Student Film Festival that begins at 7:30 p.m. in General Academic Building 105. The Super 8 and 16mm films were chosen out of 22 student entries and were judged by Dr. Donald Staples and Dr. Gerry Veeder of the radio-TV-film division, Steve Roberts, a Bed- ford senior majoring in speech and drama, and Gary Cook, a Houston graduate student study- ing film. Admission to the festival is free. The films do not have specific themes. Several comedies, a documentary, horror films, a love story and an animated film will be presented. The movies vary in length from six minutes to 15 minutes. "The festival will be more of a showcase to display the students' work and give them the op- portunity to be recognized publicly and share with other students their works," Veeder said. "Certificates of achievement ...

Friday, April 10,1981 THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY-PAGE 5 1 I i > * M Physics Olympics to feature unusual By MIKE WIGGINS Staff Writer Mousetrap car races, Fermi questions and gazorching can hardly be considered Olympic events, unless of course one is competing in the NT Physics Olympics to be held Saturday. Gazorching, the sport of stretching surgical tubing across a football goal post to be used as a giant slingshot for launching water balloons at human targets 30-50 yards away, will be the feature event of the third annual Physics Olympics, sponsored by the Society of Physics Students. GAZORCHING was a hit, literally, last year when a "PM Magazine" televi- sion camera took a direct hit from a water balloon. It was gazorched. "They were out there about the 50- yard line, and the target was a person holding his hands out," Steve Brown, Conroe graduate student and president of the Society of Physics Students, said. "They got off a shot, and it looked like it was headed for a direct hit ...

A year ago, he was confined to a chair and his hands strapped to armrests to prevent him from clawing his face during tantrums. When he was not restricted to the chair, he wore a football helmet to protect his head from blows against walls. "He was like a wild boy," Dr. Judy Stowe, a clinical psychologist for the NT Center for Behavioral Studies, said. "You couldn't imagine him sitting here in a chair. He was constantly tantruming and constantly engaged in wild talk," she said. "He would get loud and say irrelevant stuff like, 'Your mother wouldn't like it.'...

PAGE 8—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Friday. April 10,1981 Passing attack to bring offensive line recognition By MARK WELTON Daily Reporter An offensive lineman in football is asked to do two things: do his job and don't get penalized. Recognition does not come very often, and when it does, it usually is accompanied by a yellow flag. Seemingly, the only praise and respect linemen receive comes from their team- mates. To fans, they are the outcasts. It would be safe to say that if Rodney Dangerfield played football he would be an offensive lineman. Perhaps, NT offensive line coach Sam McCorkle said it best. "To play in he of- fensive line, you really have to love the game. I think you have to like it a little more than the others because they don't get any recognition. It takes a lot of pride." But, with head coach Bob Tyler plan- ning to open up the NT offense by pass- ing more, McCorkle said his troops will have a chance to be noticed, and they won't have to jump offsides to do it.
