Untversi ews ¥ttatt© XXXI I, WMtlbWf 14 University of Dallas. Irving, Texas February 12. 2003 Officials propose communications major by Elisabet Pierucci Contributing Writer A proposal is being drafted for a new rhetoric and communications major, Dr. Scott Dupree, professor of English, said last week. Dupree has been asked by professors from various departments to coordinate the drafting of the proposal, which is only the first step in the due process of adding a new major to Constantin College. Dupree said once the proposal is complete, it will be presented to the curriculum committee. Pending approval at each level, it will be presented to the faculty senate, the board of directors, and the president of the university. Dupree hopes to have the proposal ready this semester in order to begin taking the necessary steps for approval. "If everybody likes the idea, if everybody approves, if the money is there, it is conceivable that the new major might be offered in fall 2004;' he said....

4 February 12, 2002 The University News News Prospies or speckies ? Whatever the name, visitors coming soon by Ben Gibson A&E Editor "They are coming," someone whispers breathlessly. "Who's coming? " somebody else whispers back, equally breathlessly. " They!" the first replies with a tremor in his voice. "They" are the prospective students coming to visit the University of Dallas Saturday, Feb. 22, to take part in the university's Spring Visit Day I. Spring Visit Day is part of UD's Odyssey program— Dr. Fred Zuker, dean of student services, said the title is "A tip of the hat to the classics'— and should not come as a surprise to current students who can remember as far back as last semester's fall visit day. The Odyssey will begin with a reception for the 300 visiting students and their parents Friday, Feb. 23, because many of the out-of-town prospectives ("prospies" or "speckies" as they are sometimes affectionately called) arrive a day early. Zuker said the point of Odyssey i...

February 12, 2002 The University News 5 Arts & Entertainment nights, Guy, Eva all misfire by FS Movie Reviewer Shanghai Knights (wide release), the sequel to Shanghai Noon (2000), reteams unlikely duo Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson for another western action-comedy. This time Chon Wang, as Chan's character is called, and anachronistic surfer- dude Roy O Bannon travel to 1887 London to retrieve the stolen Chinese imperial seal and avenge the murder of Wang's estranged father. Even approaching fifty, Chan can still pull off some remarkable set-pieces. Two fight scenes, one featuring umbrellas and the other vases, are great fun. But most of the picture is flat and humorless; the material given to Wilson is particularly poor. The periodic historical blunders—from the presence of cars to references to Jack the Ripper and Charlie Chaplin (both well in the future)—are more amusing than most of the jokes. It doesn't take long for How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days (wide release) to wear out its...

6 February 12, 2003 The University News Fea" Will you be my Valentine? Students must use creativity to find true love by Amy Smith Contributing Writer When it comes to romance, the students at the University of Dallas know how to woo the opposite sex. After observing just a few of the couples here at UD, it is pain- fully obvious that there is no need to be Casanova to land a date. All one has to do is know the right moves. Obviously, any superior flirting skills would be rendered useless if no one were around. So first things first, find where all the hotties hang out. No, not Deep Ellum. and not downtown Old Mill but anyone who knows anything about dating knows the perfect place to meet someone is in class. It only makes sense. Where else is one forced to sit with some cute guys or girls for an hour? Just by getting up each day and trudg- ing up the paths of UD, students can find a soul mate. No longer is Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometry simply a math class; rather it serves a...

3 February 12, 2003 The University News Sports Crusader baseball starts slow, bounces back Squad opens season with loss, then sweeps doubleheader by Matt McGee Contributing Writer Letourneau 15 UD 11 The Crusaders started the 2003 season in unexpected fash- ion, allowing six runs and com- mitting two errors in the first inning of play. The squad battled back, tak- ing the lead at three different points, but in the end, shaky pitching and defense were too much for the Crusaders to over- come at the plate. The offensive explosion was keyed by the middle of the lineup, notably junior leftfielder Matt Heinritz and sophomore designated hitter Cole Monreal. Heinritz provided three hits and a walk at the plate, scoring three times. Monreal also produced with three hits, all doubles, and five runs batted in. Also making an impact at the plate were junior centerfielder Brian Spinner and junior short- stop Bobby Houston with two hits apiece. Overall, the Crusaders had 15 hits, as eight of the...

February 12, 2003 The University News 11 Commentary Professor emphasizes necessity of speaking well Dr. Phiiipp Rosemann Philosophy Professor "Kein ding sei wo das wort gebricht." Fear me not, my dear friends: it is only the title of this little piece that is in German. Kein Ding sei wo das Wort gebricht is a line from a famous poem by Stefan George. The poem is called, "The Word," and ends with die two lines: So lernt ich traurig den verzicht/ Kein ding sei wo das wort gebricht. In English: Thus, I sadly learned renunciation: / [That] there is no thing where the word is lacking. The poet is communicating a relatively simple insight. The relationship between the world and language is not an extrinsic one, as though words were labels that we attach to pre- existing things. Rather, words are creative: they create the world in which we live. What you cannot name, you cannot think nor communicate it is, as though the entity in question were somewhere out there, in the dark, but you were...

Irving, Texas February 19,2003 Business school receives scholarship endowment by Janet Hendrickson Editor in Chief As at least 10 prospective students arrive on campus this visit weekend to compete for new departmental business scholarships, the undergraduate program continues to develop within its existing framework.

February 19, 2003 The University News 3 News Speaker urges post-cold war missile de ense Photo by Ben Gibson Brian Kennedy lectured on the necessity of a national missile defense last week to an audience in Madonna Hall. by Ben Gibson A&.E Editor The American need for mis- sile defense is both urgent and practical, Brian Kennedy, presi- dent of the Claremont Institute for the Study of Statemanship and Political Philosophy, said, in his presentation in the McKenna Lecture Series. Dr. R.J. Pestritto, associate professor of politics, said Kennedy's topic was especially timely in light of President Bush's relatively unnoticed an- nouncement a few months ago that the United States would deploy a missile defense system. Kennedy discussed America's lack of a missile de- fense system and the lack of con- cern Americans seem to devote to the subject. He attributes this to the complacency of a post- cold war America, which as- sumes itself safe simply because the Soviet Union has collapse...

4 February 19, 2003 The University News News Semester promises multiple foreign language films by Lincy George Contributing Writer Coincidence has provided UD students the opportunity to watch foreign films in German, French, or Spanish almost every week till the end of the semes- ter. The foreign films are re- quired components of several upper level language courses, including Advanced Communi- cations and Twentieth Century French Literature. Professors of French, Span- ish and German just happened to select spring 2003 to offer these film classes. Dr. Steve Maddux, French professor, said the influx of films posed no problem for the courses, but professors did have to adjust schedules. Sandra Rosenstiel, Spanish professor, said professors planned the courses but did not necessarily communicate that to each other. "This is the first time that three major languages are doing it. It was planned. We just didn't know we were all doing it;' she said. Dr. Donovan Andersen, Ger- man profe...

UD students have the option to fulfill their federal work-study by participating in the program this year, and Gonzales said she is in need of far more tutors than she currently has.

Deep Ellum can claim such kinship not just because it, too, is a spot where the disreputable bored can gather at unreasonable veterans in the ways of such places.
