Wesleyan goes fishing for new students with Internet Homepages pop up on World Wide Web The rambler Student Death, continued from page 1 Christy Awad Managing editor In the 1920s, it was radio. It had little structure or organization and not everybody knew about it. Then a department store in Pittsburgh went commercial, and thanks to pleasantly surprising results, it wasn't long before radio was a widespread part of life. In the 90s, many say it's the Internet. "1 see the same thing happening to the Internet as happened with radio in the 20's," said Dr. Ben Hale, professor of mass communication. Hale said that the World Wide Web (WWW) has prompted commercial- ization .with its ability to import photographs and designs. Wesleyan has access to Internet through Texas Christian University (TCU). "The files that make up the pages are located on one of TCU's web servers," said Hale. Current access to WWW on campus is predomi- nantly through a NetCom account through the school of business ...

If they are on a tight budget or enjoy comparison shopping, they could learn that books purchased outside the campus are often priced lower-on the average, anywhere from ten cents to five dollars less—than Wesleyan. When asked how this is possible, Mike Gore, owner of the Wesleyan bookstore for fourteen years, responded that although this is generally true, they do sell some books at lower prices than outside bookstores.

Christy Awad, Managing Editor Brad Ball, Graphic Artist Founded 1917, Member Associated Collegiate Press, Texas Intercollegiate Press Association & A dollar a day keeps the students away Editorial We all know students aren't generally loaded with money. So the Eunice and James West Library's policy of charging SI a day per overdue book makes sense. Jack up the price and no one can afford to return books late. Problem is, many students are beginning to feel they can't afford to use the library. Regardless of the price' charged, human error and extenuat- ing circumstances will inevitably lead to overdue books. There's nothing wrong with charging a rea- sonable line. The University of Texas at Arlington's library charges a late fee of 25 cents per book per day,' as does Central Library. Even Texas Christian University's one- time line of $15 per book is implemented after a 21 -day grace period. There's no reason for Weslcvan's library to charge stu- dents four times the normal rate...

The Rambler Rams defeat St. Edward's By Dominick Mastrangelo Staff writer Sometimes a win is a win and nothing more. To Texas Wesleyan's head coach Dennis Krishka, his team's 73-71 win over St; Edward's last Wednesday was conference win number two and nothing more. "I'm happy with the win," said Krishka, "but I'm disappointed with the way we played." Wesleyan blew a 10-point halftime lead and needed two free throws from Otis Evans with live seconds left to hold off a feisty St. Edward's team. "We didn't play like a conference contender. We played like a sixth place team," said Krishka, who called his team, among other things com- placent. • Wesleyan (2-2 Heart of Texas, 10-9 overall) seemed anything but com- placent as they forced a turnover on St. Edward's opening possession and went on an 11 -0 run, led by junior Jason Peterson!s seven points. Peterson picked up his third foul at 7:01 and was on the bench for the duration of the half. The Rams didn't falter without their scoring l...

The Rambler r- [ B A ' Wesleyan students keep things rolling By Kelli Parker Features editor Seeing people roll around campus these days is getting to be as common as seeing them walk. Although the bike racks might not be as full at Wesleyan as they are on a larger campus, there are a lew skateboards to be found, and the rollerblades appear to be multiplying. In-line skating serves as a great form of exercise, but most students are simply in it for luii. Jos!) Worley, a freshman bio chemistry major, said that watching other people inspired him to indulge in the sport. "I saw what you could do on rollerblades that you couldn't do on , roller skates," said WorlcY. Worley happens to think that his own back- yard at Wesleyan is quite accommodating, he said. "It's a great spot," said Worley, "there's all sorts of stuff you can jump on!" ' Apparently, the smooth sidewalk isn't good enough for Keith Jordan either. "We use the stairs to jump off.

—t The rambler University Plan proposed to commitees By Allison E. Wood News Editor Last fall, thirteen committees made up of 85 people met to discuss Wesleyan's University Plan. Selected members of the staff, faculty, studnet body, borard of trustees, and board of visitors were each assgined a chapter to work on, said Marcia Wildemon. The 13 commitees then sent their ideas for the univeristy to the president's office where it was com- piled into one document. The single copy was then sent out to the com- mittees and asked that they read over the chapters,make comments, then resubmit the university plan. The plan was broken down into chapters such as academics, enroll- ment, faculty, and finance, to name a few. Each chapter was then divided into a general purpose statement, followed by goals and activities to meet these goals. Below is a sample of the university plan, as it stands as this time. Academics General purpose statement: Faculty, staff, and administration work collaborativ...

The Rambler Cupid increases frequent-flier miles By Kelli Parker Features editor Anyone who. is involved in a long distance relationship will tell you that it's hard. Today it's even harder. Every couple is supposed to cel- ebrate together, but even Cupid can't erase the hundreds of miles that stand between two love-struck hearts on Valentine's Day. So what's the deal with these complicated relationships anyway? Do they work? Why do people both- er? Doesn't it get annoying, not to mention expensive? "We talk during off hours, so it's cheaper," explains chemistry major Kari Benoit who talks to her boyfriend in North Carolina about once a week. The two started dating in high school and she is now a col- lege sophomore. She admits that neither of them are too good at writ- ing letters, so the phone calls tie them over until they can see each other on long breaks. "We're free to see other people," says Benoit. Perhaps this under- standing is what saves many long distance relationships, ...
