I ^ 1 1 " i i .. i ii i ,i i i ii III i ill Hi Costly B1 Contracts Corner Carter WASHINGTON (AP)—The outgoing Pentagon leadership handed President-elect Jimmy Carter a major problem Thursday by awarding con- tracts to start production of the Bl bomber, costliest in history. After becoming president Jan. 20, Carter will have to decide whether to let that decision stand or reverse it. During the campaign, he said he would not build the Bl. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld announced the go-ahead decision after consulting President Ford. The move came as no surprise because Ford said last April "We must build the Bl bomber and we're going to." RUMSFELD AND Air Force Secretary Thomas C. Reed claimed it is imperative that the Bl be produced to help offset growing Soviet strength in strategic nuclear weapons. "It would be irresponsible not to initiate Bl production at this time," Reed told a news conference. The Bl, about two-thirds the size of the B52, is a swing-wing, four-jet air- craf...

PAGE 2 — THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY r Friday, December 3, 1976 An Editorial Pardon Will Imply Guilt President-elect Jimmy Carter promises to offer a blanket pardon of Vietnam draft evaders during his first week in office following his Jan. 20 in- auguration. A group of Carter staff members are preparing the pardon order, headed by David Berg, a Houston attorney with the American Civil Liber- ties Union (ACLU). The details of the plan are still not known, but Carter has said that the pardon will cover only draft evaders. He has said that deserters should be dealt with on a case-by-case basis, Although his proposals are definitely a step in the right direction,Carter has left open several questions of great importance to persons con- cerned with the amnesty issue. First is his terminology. Carter has never called his proposals "amnesty." Part of his reason for this may be political, since Carter and Walter Mondale used the pardon of former president Richard Nixon as a reason for pardoning ...

A steady drizzle fell from over- cast skies, making the shoes of the runners heavy from the water they had soaked up during the long run. At least 10 runners of the Held of I SO did not Finish the race. Exhaustion took its toll. When the first-place finishers crossed the line, Brian Uskovich still had a mile to go. He finished some nine minutes later, but he wasn't too concerned. Brian was not officially entered in the race, he was merely running for prac- tice. The oddity of this is that Briar;, only 13 years old, beat four college runners in the 6.3-mile race. "BRIAN USED to pester the hell out of me," said his father, v /Mr Brian...

1 r 1 The North Texas Daily 60TH YEAR NO. 54 NORTH TEXAS STATE UNIVERSITY, DENTON, TEXAS TUESDAY, December 7, 1976 Parker Files Eminent Domain Bill Proposal Would Deny NT, TWU Thoroughfare Rights By JOHN FLEMING Daily Reporter Taking advantage of the prelegislative filing period, State Rep. Walt Parker of Denton has filed a bill in Austin that would specifically deny NTSU and TWU the right to condemn public property, such as streets, for the pur- pose of expansion. Parker said Monday that the bill, which is cosponsored by State Sen. Tom Creighton, comes in response to heavy, though geographically concentrated, criticism of NTSU's attempts to con- demn portions of Avenue D and Prairie Street. By prefiling his bill, Parker is fulfilling a promise made to his constituents last July that he would end the street con- troversy with legislation from the state level. Parker said July 4 he wanted to avoid the "fickleness of the courts" to have a number of opinions on one topic and that he wa...

PAGE 2 — THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Tuesday, December 7, 1976 NT Fall 1976: An Evaluation : Board of Regents Next semester the Board of Regents will have the opportunity to act positively in the students' behalf on at least three student-related issues. These issues concern approving the Student Government Association (SGA) constitution, al- lowing the sale of beer and wine in the University Union and adopting a refund plan for students who drop courses during the semester. During the fall semester, the Board of Regents met three times and tackled the rather routine work of personnel assignments, new degree proposals and approving bids for construction. The most significant issue the regents faced was the controversy concerning the university's at- tempts to close portions of two city streets for campus expansion. A successful conclusion to the controversy resulted when the regents authorized President C.C. Nolen to give the city of Denton $400,500 for utility relocations in return for t...

THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY PAGE iil Service Moves Up Deadline BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS There are 16 shopping days left until Christmas, but there are four days left for mailing first-class items such as cards if you want them to arrive by the holi- days. The Postal Service has moved up the deadline because of the strike of East Coast employes of United Parcel Service—the nation's largest private package carrier. Friday was the deadline for mailing parcels. More than 9,000 extra employes are being hired by the Postal Service to han- dle the holiday crush, but officials say they will have serious problems if people wait until the last minute to mail holiday gifts. Postmaster Gen. Benjamin F. Bailar said the public was not mailing packages and cards as early as had been hoped. Bailar said that a quick strike settle- ment of East Coast employees of United Parcel Service "would have only a fairly minor influence on our volume." He said it would take time for United Parcel to get back to normal...

After a shaky first half, North Texas came on strong in the second period and finally got its offense going full tilt for the first time this season. The win brings NT's record to 3-1 and halted the Wild- cats' four-game winning streak. Guards Norvell Miles and Walter (Weasel) Johnson keyed the Mean Green's second-half surge. Miles found a red-hot spot twenty feet from the bucket and poured in 18 second-half points. Johnson added 14 points after halftime, and the pair tied for high point honors with 20 each. WITH THE Wildcats' big man Larry Dassie riding the bench with four fouls, NT dominated the second-half boards, and the Mean Green's fast break cooked for the first time this year in the Super Pit.

r I *' 4 S *1 Students Criticize University Committee System By VINCE HEPTIG and MARSHA TUNNELL, Daily Reporters The effectiveness of the university committee system is being questioned by several of its members. Of ihe 23 committees, eight have not met this semester. Reasons for not meeting, given by committee chairmen, include not having a complete list of members, poor organization, lack of communication and not being able to call a meeting time when members of committees are able to attend. Three committees—hospital and health services, legal services and ethnic affairs—are manned and chaired only by students. The other committees are comprised of students and faculty and chaired by faculty members, Lynne Strong, Student Government Association (SGA) Committee on Committees chairman, said. DENTON SENIOR Richard Ray said, "I don't feel like any of the com- mittees have done anything." Ray, who serves on the Men's Intramural Council and the Freshman Orientation Committee, said he h...

Nolen's administration showed signs of concern for student wishes at times this semester, but displayed gross unconcern for stu- dent attitudes on a number of student-related is- sues. After The Daily brought to the administration's attention the need for upgraded fire-safety features in the University Union and virtually all of the older buildings on campus, Nolen assigned Dr. Marvin H. Berkeley, newly appointed vice- president for administrative affairs, to head a committee to examine the fire-safety issue. Just what, if anything, will result from Berkeley's committee remains to be seen. However, the administration has decided to install better fire exits and alarms in the two buildings currently under construction. The administration will have another chance to meet student needs next semester by considering refunds for students who drop courses during the ad...

Chafetz, a senior history major from San Antonio, will be celebrating his first Christmas as a Hebrew-Christian. He is the co-founder of the Denton Hebrew- Christian Fellowship. "When a Jew becomes a Christian, he sees where the Messianic prophecies of the Old Testament fit together. When he sees this, he becomes anxious and excited because his Jewishness is brought to com- pletion," Chafetz said. FOR THOSE who see irrecon- cilable contradic- tion between CHAI-ETZ Jewish identity and Chiistian religion, Chafetz offers the observation that Jesus Christ himself was a Jew. "When I first realized that, it just blew my mind," he said. "I was always very arrogant toward Christians,"...

Wednesday, December 8, 1976 P ll 'It \ r \ Students Tour Lignite Plant By TERRY MARLOW Daily Reporter Fifteen students from Physics 308, "Energy and Our Evnironment," toured the Big Brown lignite plant in Fairfield Saturday, Jack Hehn of the physics faculty said Monday. The plant has mined 1,500 acres since it opened in 1970. The tour guide, Mike McKinney of the Texas Power and Light Co. (TP&L), told the group that TP&L digs from 30 to 150 feet down to a vein of lignite. The veins usually are from six to eight feet deep. Draglines, with booms as long as a football field and buckets big enough to hold two pickup trucks, expose the lignite coal veins, he said. The draglines are powered by electricity and use 7,000 feet of extension cords about six inches in diameter. The bucket scoops up 70 cubic yards of earth in one bite, McKin- ney said. This dirty, dusty business is handled with a truck able to hold 180 tons of water. The truck continually sprays the work roads, he said. T...

The North Texas Daily 60TH YEAR NO. 56 NORTH TEXAS STATE UNIVERSITY, DENTON, TEXAS TUESDAY, JANUARY 18. 1977 Firing Squad Executes Giimore POINT OK THE MOUNTAIN, Utah (AP)-A five-man firing squad ex- ecuted killer Gary Giimore Monday, minutes after a federal appeals court re- jected the last attempt by death peralty opponents to keep him alive against his wishes. "Let's do it," were apparently Gilmore's last words. He spoke them to Warden Samuel Smith after he was strapped into the chair where he met his death before the anonymous marksmen. THE EXECUTION was the first in the United States in nearly 10 years. It was carried out after the Utah at- torney general, a federal judge, and a lawyer opposed to the death penalty took a predawn flight to Denver to argue issues raised in a stay granted by U.S. District Judge Willis Ritter seven hours before the execution. Giimore died bound to a chair by nylon ropes with a hood over his head. Before his death at 9:07 a.m. (Denton time) he spoke...

Why? A.M. Willis, chairman of the NT Board of Regents, said the UT regents' recent decision to al- low beer sales on the UT-Arlington campus may have influenced several NT regents to vote for the sale of beer in the Rock Bottom Lounge at the Friday regents' meeting. This was the second time the on-campus beer proposal had been presented to the regents. The regents rejected the proposal when it was first presented in June by a 5-3 vote. At Friday's meeting, Regent Kenneth May of Lubbock said the matter was a controversial one and the regents each had strong opinions regarding it. He urged action on the proposal because he said the regents' opinions were unlikely to change. Union officials said it will be the end o...
