April 24, 1996 The Rambler Editorial We'll only take so much That ominous rumbling sound isn't a stampede of cattle. Which is not to say it isn't a stampede. II you're currently getting pre- pared for pre-registration, chances are you have friends who aren't. They're evaluating their options: TCJC, TCU, UTA, North Texas. They're looking for living quarters off-campus. Why are so many people leav- ing Texas Wesleyan next semester? Maybe they're tired of being laughed at by students from other colleges when they admit that no, Texas Wesleyan still doesn't have Internet access yet. Maybe they're disgusted with the poor class selec- tion on the summer and fall schedules. Maybe they've put up with the sub-standard living condi- tions in the dormitories long enough. Or it could be the lack of school spirit (anybody see a women's basketball game this year? We didn't think so). Or how about the food at Dora Roberts cafeteria? Some people actually get in line for seconds and thirds of the on...

Most students probably have it by now, if'they hadn't already acquired it before spring break in March. So what do you do when it's 80 degrees outside, the sun is shining, the birds are chirping and you just can't focus on your school work? Activities around the Wesleyian campus art; numeroust Rollerblading is a good and fun \va> to exercise, games of football, frisbee, tennis, and sand volleyball are easy enough to come by as well as the ever-popular sport of sunbathing. But if you're looking to escape the campus and expe- rience a little of the Metroplex, here are some suggestions for different things to do to help you pass the time until you feel you can go back inside and study: Take a trip to The Ballpark in Arlington and see u Texas Rangers game.. Bleacher seats are only $4 per person, grandstand are $6. Parking can be found around the perimeter of the lot for fr...

'age April 24, 1996 The Rambler Hollywood Pictures' Celtic Pride has very few reasons to be proud Dominick Mastrancjelo Allison E. Wood Staff They said... Daniel Stern, Damon Wayans and Academy Award winner Dan Akroyd star in the motion picture, Celtic Pride, a comedy that follows two obsessed basketball fans who do the unthinkable in trying to help their team win a world champi- onship. Mike O'Hara (Stern) is an ele- mentary school gym teacher who lives vicariously through the success and failure of (he Boston Celtics ever since his dream of playing in the NBA died when he left high school. O'Hara's best ,friend Jimmy Flaherty (Akroyd) is a plumber (sort of) and almost a bigger Boston sports fan than his buddy. The term 'obsessed' is almost too light to describe these "fans." As the movie opens, Lewis' Scott (Wayans), a well-endorsed, ball-hogging superstar, has single- handedly won game six of the NBA finals for the Utah Jazz, requiring a seventh and deciding game. O'Hara and Flah...

Or, whatever you're looking for may tind you, as was the case with new softball coach Carol Pierce. Pierce took over March 1 for Vem Carter, who retired but stayed on until a replacement was found.

The Rambler A student-operated newspaper serving the Texas Wesleyan community LIBRARY University funds, pensions jeopardized by retirement dispute Kklli Parker Life editor Faculty members have in the hundreds of thousands of dollars to lose, and it could cost Wesleyan approximately $1 million next year, depending on the outcome of a retirement dispute. Controversy over retirement benefits has caused a group of 25 faculty members to consult .with legal counsel, and the administration has been conferring with university attorneys, as well. The faculty is now under what is called a defined benefit plan. This is a retirement plan where employ- ees, with some educated estima- tions, know what their benefits will be at the time of retirement. In 1956, an unspecified dona- tion in the millions of dollars was made to the university by Rebecca Estes Gray. The trustees serving along with former Wesleyan presi- dent Law Sone ruled that this money would be named a defined benefit retirement fun...

However, enough good has happened to this school over the past two semesters to coax a smile out of the most disgruntled stu- > dent. The biggest headline grabber was the $2.5 million donated by Frank and Faye Roberts. Part of the money will go to fund the Internet which is tentatively targeted to run during the summer. Plans for the other parts of the donation have yet to be determined. The landscape challenged campus received a new addition in the' Baker House, which has taken up residency next to Dan Waggoner Hall and will house the admissions department. The house was a gift from Wesleyan trustees Nicholas and Louella Baker Martin. The resident assistants were saved from the third world equiva- lent of R.A. neglect when they were OK'd fre...

HE RAMBLER Survey says: service satisfactory Dominick Mastrangklo Sports editor The preliminary results of Dr, Sandra Hart's consumer behavior class of 13 showed that a majority of Wesleyan students were happy with their advisers, content with registra- tion and satisfied with the computer labs. The survey was administered three weeks, ago and was given to students attending class in the Armnstrong-Mabee Business build- ing. 1 According to Hart, dean of the school of business, the format for the survey was upgraded with the hopes of "improving the questions to get good answers." Most of those answers came from the computer and registration portions of the survey. Eighty-three percent of the stu dents surveyed said their use of the computer labs would increase if the labs were equipped with color print- ers and Internet Registration was given a luke- w a r m connections.

Miko Entertainment editor Music major Wesley Griffin will present his senior recital on May 6 at 7:30 p.m. in the Law Sone Fine Arts Center. Griffin's program will consist of various percussion pieces. "The reason 1 chose: these pieces is because I want it to be a challenging program," Griffin said. . Among .the selections he will perform is nationally renowned per cussionist Dave Mancini's multi-percussion solo, Latin Journey. Mancini wrote the solo specifically for Griffin's recital. Griffin said when he learned that Mancini was'writing the music for him, he had mixed emotions.

May 1,1996 The Rambler % Rams swept by Crusaders Grkc; Bogomol Staff writer The Mary Hardin-Baylor Crusaders (29-15, 13-8) clinched the third spot in the Heart of Texas Conference playoffs last Friday and Saturday with a three game sweep over the Texas Wesleyan Rams (13- 35, 4-17) at Sycamore Park. Cagney Funderburk, a fresh- man from Humble, Texas, threw his best game of the year in yielding just four hits to a struggling, last place Wesleyan club, winning 7-2. The Crusaders jumped on the board early. With one out in the first, Chad Martin hit a single and went to third on Derek Watson's double. Chris Ziegler followed with a drib- bler back to Ram pitcher David York (2-7), who had Martin caught between third and home, but threw the ball over third baseman Jeremy Carroll's head to allow both Martin and watson to score on the play and let Ziegler go to second.

We've been changing an awful lot over the past few years. In 1992 we were a tabloid printed on plain white paper. That's tabloid as in smaller than newspaper, not as in scandal rag, although we've been accused of being that, too. Recent staffs have made great strides in format, clarity of layout, objectivity and quality of copy. We used to run press releases regularly; now they are a last resort. We used to have more spelling and gram- matical errors, believe it or not. We used to be safer and we used to suck up to the powers that be. Now we are striving, first and foremost, to inform students about issues that are important to them. This may involve stepping on some toes from time to time, and we don't mind thai, as long as we feel the toes need some stepping on. We're not out to get anyone* we're not malicious.

So reads my favorite T-shirt sold at Four Star Coffee Bar at 3324 West 7th Street in Fort Worth (336-5555). I have recently discovered Four Star, and it continues to draw me to its coffee-scented surroundings. There are plenty of tables for drinkers to occupy, but they don't make the room feel crowded. My favorite tables are the ones near the door that are hand-painted. It you need some coffee and want something cold, try • one of Four Star's cold drinks, with or without coffee. My favorite the 16- ounce Hspresso Milkshake. This thick drink of a double espresso blended into vanilla ice cream and a splash of milk comes served in a tall glass with a straw and spoon.

A student-operated newspaper serving ff/ULJixas Wesleyan community F acuity retirement plan frozen New plan .set to begin this year Kelli Parker Managing editor Over the summer, the university employees' defined benefit retirement plan was frozen. A new defined contri- . bution plan is to begin this year. I .asi year, a group of approximately 25 faculty sought legal advice after hearing that their defined benefit plan (one in which the employee knows what his/her benefit will be at the time of retirement) was to be fro/en. This was decided when the university realized that a defined contri- bution plan (one to which the university and the individual contribute a percentage of their paycheck) would cost them approximately half the amount, officials said. By freezing the plan, the employee would receive .all benefits earned up to that point and then switch to the new plan. Last semester, science professor Bobby Deaton explained that this could make a difference of more than $ 10,000 p...
