Her progran}, Developing Adult Reading in Tex^s (DART), consists of 10 learning-packet modules. The packets use a variety of teaching strategies in- cluding visual aids and research-based material. MODULES THAT are ready for dis- tribution include Comprehension, Vocabulary, Word Attack, Readability and Motivation. The program is in- troduced with a videotape by K.DFW- TV reporters Judy Jordan and Ray Walker. According to Health Education and Welfare figures, 20 per cent of the na- tion's population 16 and older are con- sidered illiterate. "This means one who cannot read, write or calculate in order to survive in society," said Dr. Wil- liamson. Another 20 per cent are able to cope in society only with help, she said. Other modules to be completed are Diagnosis Reading Approaches, L...

The North Texas Daily 60TH YEAR NO. 14 NORTH TEXAS STATE UNIVERSITY, DENTON, TEXAS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 1976 Presidential Hopefuls Cram For Televised Confrontation By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The two men who put their ideas on the line tonight in the first presidential debate of 1976 spent the final hours studying their thick briefing books. Behind Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter were weeks of preparation. The stakes are high. The setting is a Philadelphia theater nearing the end of its second century: the television audience, a nation of voters mindful that a similar first encounter in I960 was credited with helping elect John F. Kennedy to the presidency. THE WHITE House, after days of denials, acknowledged that the President has rehearsed with aides who peppered him with the kind of questions he might get in Philadelphia.

PAGE 2 —THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY An Editorial Gun Ban Would Fail People kill, not guris. People will kill whether or not they have guns. In fact, the FBI says most murders are not com- mitted with guns. There should be some control of firearm sales and some regulation of who can own a gun, but to prohibit guns altogether would be a radical and senseless move. The prohibition of guns would work no better than the prohibition of alcohol. A black market for guns would develop, making it easy for criminals to get guns, but not for the average law- abiding citizen. Instead of working to ban guns completely, people need to be more realistic about the situa- tion. Guns have become an important part of our society. Millions of guns are owned by thousands of people. People collect^uns. They hunt with guns. They hide one away to make them feel a little safer. They even have gun and hunting clubs. People have spent a lot of time and money on guns. They will not give them up. If guns were prohibit...

m W t 1/ ? i Thursday, September 23, 1976 Minorities To Discuss Activities Intercultural Services will sponsor a meeting today at I p.m. Tor all minority students in Room 415 of the University Union. The meeting will have two main purposes, Harve King, assistant dean of students, said. First, King hopes that the meeting will bring all of the minority students together. "We feel that there should be some unification among the (minority) groups," King said. "In the past, there hasn't been enough interaction on campus among the inter- national students, Black students and Mexican-American students," King said. Second, a program of activities will be planned for the school year. The meeting will enable the students to voice their opinions on the type of programming that should be sponsored. Such activities may include sponsor- ing a Mexican-American Week, Black Emphasis Week and an International Awareness Week as well as scheduling speakers and debates.

Dolph Briscoe has urged the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The reservoir project is on the upper Navasota River. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Depart- ment and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Ser- vice have recommended that the corps withhold a permit until arrangements have been made to buy more than 15,000 acres of land to compensate for the wildlife habitat the lake would flood. The corps acquired permitting authority over the project when a federal court extended its power to non- navigable waterways. In a letter to the corps' district engineer in Fort Worth, Col. Joe Sheard, the governor said it was the state's position that the project be com- pleted at the earliest possible time. He said the corps should issue the permit "immediately without any delay for further mitigation discussio...

Fry's conglomeration of formations and plays are used as an equalizer to compete against teams with better per- sonnel or more experienced players, he said Wednesday.

T Committee Passes New Degree Core By PATRICIA RAMSEY, Daily Reporter Proposed additional requirements for the bachelor of arts degree (B.A.) were approved at a meeting of the Curriculum Committee Wednesday. The B.A. core recommendations passed 14-8 after almost three years of consideration in an ad hoc committee. The goal of the College of Arts and Sciences is to make the new degree program a part of the 1977-78 catalog. In order to do this, the Faculty Senate must next consider the proposed requirements, followed by President C.C. Nolen's final consideration. CONSISTING OF four core requirements, the proposal's objective is to "ensure exposure of the student to a broad range of classical and contem- porary ideas," a report by the ad hoc committee said. The ad hoc committee, chaired by Dr. William H. Glaze, associate dean of arts and sciences, recom- mended in its proposal that the B.A. degree "shall consist of 51-65 semester hours plus the university's physical education requireme...

D*ftC n tljt •« . . ***>*• « rue kiAdTU rrw«o nmiw THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY / j Matustik and Board Winning Fever Competition. Our society thrives on it From infancy, Americans are drilled in such '.hetoric as: "Winning is everything," "Nice guys finish last" and "Show me a good loser and I'll show you a loser." Forget the line about it not mattering whether you win or lose, but how you play the game. That was originated by a frustrated mother trying to comfort her wailing Little Leaguer who just lost the game by striking out with the bases loaded. To all of us, competition in games is of great impor- tance. Games of childhood can determine the course of one's fate. The wrong role-playing in "Mommy and Daddy" will have profound social repercussions later in life. So, with heads crammed full of childhood propaganda on the merits of being a winner, we em- bark through puberty and on into college life. Here we compete daily in classrooms in order to graduate, get jobs and compete in car...

IS or le x- o- "g il- Friday, September 24, 1976 Co stumers Hand Sew Play Attire By MARY READ Special Writer Costumes for "The Tempest" have given learning opportunities to the costume construction crew and to the actors who will wear them, said Corliss McCallister, New Orleans graduate stu- dent and costume designer for the production. "The Tempest," which will open Tuesday and run through Oct. 2, is the I5th annual presentation of Shakespearean drama by NT. The costume crew has had three weeks to design and make the 33 garments for the play. "WE'VE HAD TO draw our own pat- terns or adapt modern ones to give the effect of the garments which were really hand-sewn," Mrs. McCallister said. Mrs. McCallister said she did not try to design costumes which are historically accurate, but ones which emphasize the glamour and beauty of the period. Actors wearing the houppelande, a long dress popular in the medieval period, "are having to adapt to this style by raising their skirts when they w...

The agency said the 1977 model cars tested in its laboratory averaged a theoretical 18.6 miles per gallon of gas, or one mile a gallpn better than the 1976 models tested a year ago. The 18.6 miles a gallon industry average exceeds the 18.0 miles a gallon federal fuel economy standard which will go into effect with 1978 model cars. There was no federal requirement for 1977 models. EPA SAID II of the 13 automobile manufacturers met the 1978 standard with their 1977 models and seven of the manufacturers met the 1980 standard of 20.0 miles a gallon. The improved mileage is...

PAGE 2 — THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY An Editorial Fire Chief Burns Public The Denton fire chief is embarking on a policy that undermines the morale of Denton firemen and could jeopardize the safety of common citizens. Chief Jack Gentry sent copies of a letter written to NT President C. C. Nolen last week to city and university officials apologizing for the appearance of a story concerning the University Union in the Sept. 15 issue of The Daily. In the article, Capt. Alvin Evans said the Union violated several fire safety codes. Gentry apologized in his letter for Evans' state- ments and went on to say: "I can assure you that any criticism from our staff will not be aired in the news media in the future," That sounds more like a threat-accompanied vow passed between Kremlin bureaucrats than a statement sent from one American official to another. Gentry's failure to back Evans has drawn criticism from several firemen. Most say Gentry has abandoned his own employe by criticizing him for his ...
