Quintanar The Rambler A proposal for a women's studies minor made by Dr. Miram lispinosa, chair of the department of languages and literature, was approved Oct. 26 by the Academic Affairs Committee.

The Rambler Women's tennis work hard to prepare for next semester By John Singleton Special to the Rambler Wesleyan's tennis season can be described in one word: difficult. After a weekend match with Texas Lutheran, the women's tennis team are 2-6 for the season. Close losses to East Central and Southwestern Universities have made for a hard season. "These girls want to win and they have played with emotion in every match. It just hasn't worked out for them," said Coach Paul Sanderson. The women are led by Kristi Birdwell, sophomore, who plays at the one position. "Wc have good depth,", said Sanderson. ''We can win at any posi- tion on the team. A couple of breaks and our season is at 4-4." Sanderson said he believes improved doubles will help his team. In his native Australia, dou- bles play is considered important; an emphasis he said he feels the team could benefit from. "We will improve on our "dou- bles," he said. "We've lost matches 6-3, where the singles were tied at 3- 3" Bi...

"La Boheme is full of music, fun, humor, tragedy and action," said Roger Keele, Fine Arts coach/accompanist and the opera's director/conductor. Presented in a new, fresh approach, set in the 1940s, this opera is considered one of the most human, down-to-earth dramas about the struggles and tra- vails of young, poor artistic students searching for themselves. Sue Buratto, associate profes- sor of music and producer/vocal coach for the opera, said, "I chose this opera because it is about starv- ing artists. I felt Wesleyan students could relate to it. ...

Student feels attitudes toward G.L.E.E. club extreme Dear Editor: I'm writing concerning the G.L.E.E. club here at. the Texas Wesleyan campus. I feel that the attitudes toward this club, for the most part, art outrageous.. People are acting as if this is a club trying to get recognized for promoting violence. People tend to fear the unknown. For example, there are foreigners, different ethnic groups, AIDS victims and the list goes on. But what links these societies to the G.L.E.E. club is that they show different lifestyles that may not agree with everyone but expose others to what is known as daily life or reality to someone else. Just because you acknowledge something doesn't mean you have to accept it. Everyone talks about how it (the G.L.E.E. club) dis- agrees with the Bible and how it's a sin. B...

The Rambler I ■ Men's tennis earns national ranking in preseason By Erin Voss The Rambler The Texas Wesley an 1995-96 tennis team earned a national ranking during this fall's prac- tice season. This year marked the beginning of a fall tennis program, which prepares players for spring competition. • The games played this fall were for practice purposes. Tennis player Sophia Ruiz explained that the fall practice will help the team when they play the same schools in the spring. She said she was proud of the women's team, who played tough teams such as Texas Woman's University. Kevin Franzer, a freshman player, had some- thing to say about the men's recognition. "The school ranking is important to me because it's the first time in a long time that the men's tennis team has had a national ranking. As a freshman it's exciting because it proves that hard work and strong team unity pays off," he said. Another freshman, Christine Nguyen, was Keith Jordan, member of the men's ten- nis team, s...
