TEXAS WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY People with disabilitiesspeak out Alumna supports administration By Carey Reynolds The Rambler Amy Baxter, Miss Wheel- chair Texas 1994, attended Wesleyan starting in 1983, and her views of the school are en- tirely favorable. "When I was a freshman, they were very accommodating," Baxter said. When she started, lie re, there wasn't a ramp lead- ing to Lli/abeth Armstrong Hall, md a temporary one was placed t here. There wasn't a ramp at i he S.U.B., either. Plus, the el- evator in McTadden was acces- sible only to faculty, so she was given a key.

They can't plow down every building and start over. They have to work with what they have," Baxter said.

But all the stress and pressures of the day melt away as he leaves the campus and heads south to his home and favorite pastime of garden cultivation. Ferrier was head of techni- cal services at St. Mary's Law School in San Antonio during the '70's when he made a promise to his daughter that one day he would move the family to the country where they could raise animals and produce, see the stars, smell the rain and listen to the night.

Going up or passing through? by Kim taster The Rambler Most students at Wesleyan at one time or another have had to grace the door of the Admin- istration Building. Mom have also encountered the east entrance where the elevator was installed almost fifteen years ago. Renovations were being done on the Administration Building in 1980. At that time, the elevator was also installed because the board room as well as some administrative services were moved to the third floor, according to Dr. W.L. Hailey, pro- tessor of education and humanities. According to Hailey, who was provost at that time, this en- abled handicapped people to reach all three floors from the ground level. On the east side of t he build- ing where the elevator is , plans were made to make it resemble the west side to make the east side architecturally pleasing, aCr cording to Hailey. "As it looks now, it resembles a back door. It's obviously not finished,"said Hailey," The ex- pectation was that another entrance woul...
