"I'm thrilled to be able to go out and grab a sandwich for lunch or run to the grocery store. We had to buy our groceries and clothes in bulk during the summer time and then ship them over to Syria. I would get three pairs of shoes at a time. Then the food had to last us a few months. I remember getting a huge container of mustard that lasted a year," Perez said. Perez's parents still live in Dam- ascus while she attends the Univer- sity of Dallas. She sees them at Christmas, and they will spend the summer together.

1Q February 19, 2003 The University News Arts & Entertainment Daredevil, Jungle feel overly familiar by FS Movie Reviewer The astonishing success of Marvel Publications superhero Spider-Man on screen last year is unlikely to be repeated by another of the comic company's costumed stalwarts, Daredevil (wide release). The character is a crime- fighting vigilante dressed in a red suit with curious little horns to add a demonic touch; he's a counterpart to Batman, battling evil to avenge the murder of his father. The twist is that he was blinded as a youth, with the result that all his other senses have developed remarkably to compensate for the loss. Unfortunately, the story that writer-director Mark Steven Johnson has devised to showcase this potentially interesting figure is all too familiar. It pits him against a crime lord called Kingpin and his crazed henchman Bullseye, while giving him a love interest named Elektra who also happens to be a martial artist. Visually it's also en...

The University News February 19, 2003 H Sports Sports and stuff Hope springs eternal for Rangers As professional baseball teams are traveling to tropical locales and gearing up for the spring training season, a surge of optimism fills base- ball fans every- Bobby Crook where. Febru- ary and March, it seems, are the only months in which any team in the league could chal- lenge for a divisional, league, or World Series championship. For Rangers fans, this is the time of the year to look at a powerful lineup, compare it to the offensive juggernauts in years past, and forget all about the inadequacies of the pitch- ing staff. February and March, it seems, are the only months of the year where pitching is not important. This season should be no different. With a new manager, some minor roster additions and the development of young talents like Hank Blalock and Mark Texieira, there is plenty for to excite the Rangers fan during spring training. Just ignore the pitching. With a starting ro...

12 February 19, 2003 The University News Sports Crusaders take four over Aust in College Squad off to quick start, hopes for successful season by Matt McGee Contributing Writer The Crusaders baseball team bolstered its record to 6-1 for the season with four victories over Austin College this weekend. To win, the Crusaders relied on an explosive offense and ser- viceable pitching. The Crusaders scored a total of 59 runs during the weekend, while receiving solid perfor- mances from junior Mike Anderson and a trio of freshmen: John Seaman, Coleman Moore and Daniel Gable as starters on the mound. With six wins to start the sea- son, the future looks bright for the Crusaders as they attempt to follow up a spectacular 2002 season, during which 33 regular season wins was not even enough to gain a postseason tournament bid. In order to gain the elusive tournament berth this season, the Crusaders squad boasts a tougher schedule. "As an independent, every game is huge," head coach Sam Blackmo...

14 February 19, 2003 The University News Commentary City off the hill Environmentalists wage war against SUVs ... again by Anna Smith Commentary Editor In the last few weeks, the New York Times has launched a fresh invective in its editorial section against the owners of the infamous mark of conspicuous consumption and environmental degradation: the SUV. However, the Times stands at the more high-minded end of a movement that takes no prisoners when it comes to getting these monsters of capitalism off the roads. Take for example the efforts of a group known as Earth on Empty, which writes mock traffic tickets for SUV owners for "failure to pay attention to your own behavior."' Another organization, the Earth Liberation Front, claims responsibility for burning SUVs recently at a Pennsylvania auto dealership. And who could forget the antics of an anonymous vigilante who took to smearing canine waste products on the door handles of SUVs in the streets of Georgetown? As ridiculous, pett...

February 19, 2003 The University Mews Commentary Dallas ordinance defies principles of American government by Kim Barvick Guest Columnist Perhaps Ms. Picrucci's cop- ies of the Federalist Papers and the Constitution of the United States are a bit dusty, or perhaps she has simply never read diem at all. In her Feb. 5 article, etitled "Risks of smoking justify new Dallas ordinance," she com- mends the Dallas City Council for establishing an ordinance banning smoking in all Dallas restaurants. She claims non- smokers ' freedom to breathe clean air is violated when they are forced by smokers to inhale second-hand smoke. While I agree with Ms. Pierucci that smoking is a very touchy issue, I feel it is neces- sary to leave personal feelings and preferences entirely out of the argument for the sake of ar- riving at an unbiased conclusion. Here at UD, students are taught to look at issues calmly and ra- tionally, without being distracted by rhetoric or emotional appeals that may cloud die i...

Universi Palla^ EWS Club football no current cost to university by Meghan Kuckelman Editor in Chief Coaching a club team, including the new football team, is not a contracted paid position, nor does it have the potential to become a paid position at UD, Dick Strockbine, athletic director, said last week. The only paid coaching positions in the athletic department are those for varsity sports. Strockbine did say, however, that there could be new non-coaching positions available next semester. "We are requesting that we're able to add staff to man the weight room and cardiovascular area," he said. "He [football coach Rob Gardenhire] would be welcome to apply for that:' The decision about this possible position has not yet been made. Last week's story regarding the new club football coach ("Former Trinity defensive lineman new club football head coach") raised multiple questions regarding issues not addressed in the article. Most of these questions from concerned students have centered...

February 26, 2003 The University News 3 News Senior gift, other graduation plans in progress by Janet Hendrickson Editor in Chief The senior class gift, the graduation speaker, the class dinner, valedictorian elections, and the faculty convocation speaker were discussed in addition to the location of graduation at last Wednesday's senior class meeting. Class gift: Phonathon fundraising concludes tonight for the senior class gift of a grotto for the Mary statue, now located in front of the church. From 6 to 9 p.m. in the office of institutional advancement, seniors can call alumni from the classes of 1993 and up, when the grotto project began. Last Wednesday, Nubia Torres, senior committee co- chair, encouraged seniors to raise money for the grotto rather than complain about the administration's decision to hold graduation off campus. "It's a really good thing to prove to the administration that we are united enough and we are strong enough that we can do this," she said. The project...

4 February 26, 2003 The University News News Budget deficit for 2003 $.5 mill ion by Meghan Kuckelman Editor in Chief UD's budget deficit for the current year ending May 31 will be half a million dollars, Bob Galecke, vice president of fi- nance and administration, said. This deficit results from a $40 million total operating budget. In response to the deficit, uni- versity personnel have cut down on all unnecessary expenditures, from non-essential travel and conferences to publications and the life cycles of computers. A freeze also has been placed on further library purchases. "We've done a tremendous amount of work, the entire uni- versity has, in addressing what was a larger deficit earlier this year," Galecke said. "There are a lot of things on hold, freezes on things, non-essential travel, lots of things that are going to help that if we continue to put the breaks on spending for the rest of this year. We'll see how we do between now and the 31st." Other money saving methods h...

"The chapters provide a structure for the alumni to support each other; that can take the form of peer networking for jobs, as well as getting together socially, or the rekindling of intellectual interests;' Sears said. The chapters also assist in advancing the university in their respective communities. This is achieved simply by making themselves more visible and helping with recruiting, Sears said. "The chapter also could help advance what I'm calling the cause of the university. We want to involve alumni more in tangible products," she said. S...

(5 February 26, 2003 The University News News debate team organizes, seeks club status by Kathy Kraay Contributing Writer The development of a Univer- sity of Dallas debate team is un- derway, with plans to begin competition next semester. "I've been wanting a debate team here at the University of Dallas, but I've been really busy with the UD radio. This is the first debate team that the Uni- versity of Dallas has had that I am aware of," Richard Simpkins, general manager of UD Radio, said. Since the debate team does not yet have a sponsor, the Of- fice of Student Life will be in charge until next semester when the team will register officially as a club. There are no requirements or prerequisites to be on the team. Simpkins hopes to have approxi- mately 12 active debate team members next semester. "The team is open to every- one. The only preference is that the student was active in debate on the high school or collegiate level. We are not sure if gradu- ate students can participat...

Derdeyn's artwork, entitled ""Biomorphic"'. will be shown in the gallery until April 4. The opening reception included musical accompaniment by freshmen Carlo Milano, Fernando Barrera, and Jim George. Relieving them later in the night was a trio of Derdeyn's friends from high school, led by the multi-Downbeat Award winning jazz pianist Michael Palma. Derdeyn showed 15 pieces at the show, most of which were painted during his last semester at Booker T. Washington High School for the Visual and Performing Arts. Two of his pieces, "Fallen" and "Ninja Guy Kicking'', were sold at the show. The style of painting that Derdeyn used in his show is Derdeyn's wire sculpture soars in front of "...

8 February 26, 2003 The University News ~he University News February 26, 2003 9 Features Former student introduces U D to Slam oetry by Chris Bowman Features Editor The University of Dallas prides itself on being a school for independent think- ers. Will Richey, a member of UD's class of 2001, returns to the school every third Wednesday of the month to make sure the students are still thinking independently. And judging from the response, UD students are doing just that. Last semester, Richey introduced UD to Slam Poetry. What might have been even more significant, however, was in- troducing Slam Poetry to UD Since September, Dallas area poets have performed at UD in front of an in- creasingly large audience. Also increas- ing is the number of UD poets who dare to take the stage. Six UD students performed in the Rat last week, the largest number of poets this year. Performing with them were several other poets in the Metroplex area, many of whom have returned multiple times since th...

1Q February 26, 2003 The University News Arts & Entertainment Gale hot air, enerals stolid by FS Movie Reviewer A significant social issue—capital punishment— gets slickj superficial treatment in The Life of David Gale (wide release). The title character, played by Kevin Spacey, is a convicted murderer on Texas death row, a former philosophy professor and anti-death penalty activist. He gives reporter Bitsey Bloom (Kate Winslet) an opportunity to interview him right before his scheduled execution, and as he tells his story in elaborate flashbacks, she becomes convinced of his innocence and aims to find the real killer in time to save him. Alan Parker's film may have its heart in the right place, but its attempt to frame its narrative in the form of a conventional whodunit cheapens things. By the close the picture has demeaned people on both sides of the death penalty debate without meaning to do so. It hasn't treated viewers all that well, either Civil War buffs will revel in Go...

The University News February 26, 2003 H Sports Sports and stuff Maybe it's time for Emmitt to go Bobby Crook Since being drafted in the first round of the 1990 NFL Draft, Emmitt Smith has been a constant f|L performer for the Dallas Cowboys. He was a Cowboy through their _ rowing pains in 1990, their return to the playoffs in 1991, and their period of NFL dominance from 1992 to 1995, which included three Super Bowl victories. He was there for the bad times as well; the team's slow decline from greatness under head coaches Barry Switzer and Chan Gailey as the team was pummeled by the effects of age and the salary cap, and for the past three years, Emmitt has been one of the few bright spots on a horrible team. Now, it seems, with a new coach and a new re-building task at hand, the Dallas Cowboys and Emmitt Smith will part ways after 13 seasons. As a Cowboy, Smith has earned numerous accolades, including four NFL rushing titles, nine Pro Bowl appearances, as well as a Super Bowl and N...

12 February 26, 2003 The University News Sports Crusader baseball m proves record to 8-1 Offense outstanding again, scoring 31 runs in two games by Matt McGee Contributing Writer After stumbling out of the gate m the season's first game, the Crusader baseball team has re-gained its footing; reeling off eight consecutive victories. Throughout the winning streak, the Crusaders have relied on an explosive offense as their inexperienced pitching staff con- tinues to mature. Through eight games, the squad's offensive output is stag- gering, as the Crusaders are av- eraging almost 14 runs per game. This pastweek, in match-ups against Howard Payne on Wednesday and Paul Quinn Col- lege Sunday, the storyline of consistent hitting and solid per- formances on the mound pro- duced two impressive victories. Against Howard Payne, the Crusaders faced their toughest test of the young season. With the score knotted at three after five innings, the Cru- saders rallied for six runs in the sixth inning...

Miss Rilling "s article was beyond misrepresen- tation of facts; while rhetorically charged, it was completely un- grounded in truth. As members of RHA, we find it necessary to set the record straight concern- ing her objections to RHA ac- tivities and principles, as well as her malicious attack on those who have faithfully served in this organization. Miss Rilling claims that their concern for justice and honor prevents veteran members of RHA seeking a second term, for they know that RHA is a "pit of vipers/' As to the current roster of RHA members, the fact is one third of the current body of RHA officers are former RHA mem- bers.
