Graham's resignation comes after a somewhat turbulent year of dealing with student organizations on campus. Chris Masingill, presi dent of the Student Government Association, said, "SGA and the dean's office did not see eye to eye on a lot of things." He added, how- ever, that SGA had worked with Graham on a lot of good issues. He said, "We ...

Many of the students that came to this school came 'based on the si/.e anil the attention paid to the students by the professors. I think the ratio given ,by the univer- sity is 17:1. With Wesleyan's push to bring in more students, they have exceeded their budget, which in turn lias, put .a crunch on many organizations and depart- ments.' So, naturally we should expect enrollment to go up. Thinking out loud, with all these new students expected to enroll, are we to believe that they are all get- ting money?

lHRambier April 17, 1997 Football lover gets his day on the field Bobby Taylor Special to The Rambler ¥ Texas Wesleyan has assembled its first football team in 56 years, and one of its players has an inter- esting history in football. Nelson Jones, a freshman player for the new Rams football team, has never played full-contact football in his life. Running back/defensive back Jones never played the sport in junior high or high school because his parents disapproved of his par- ticipation in the rough game. He was never forbidden to play, but he did not want to anger his parents by going against their wishes. "I didn't like not being able to play. I really loved the game and felt a little held back," he said. Jones, in addition, said that he was not angry at his parents for not let- ting him play because he could understand that they did not want him to get hurt. So what was it like for Jones to strap on his pads for the first time? "It felt strange and different. 1 did- n't know how...

The Rambler April 17, 1997 5 ' ■ M Guys and Dolls 'rocks the boat' Steve Cumbie Special to the Rambler 1 am ashamed to admit this but until last weekend, it had been four years since I had seen a musical performed by our School of Fine Arts. After Sitting through two and a half hours of pure delight Friday evening, 1 can assure you that this trend will not continue. I've seen professional theaters that would be envious of the cast and crew of this year's musical, Guys and Dolls. For those of you who missed it (and you shouldn't have)# Guys and Dolls is a story about the nightlife on Broadway in the early 1950s It was written by Frank Loesser, also known for How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (recently on Broadway starring Matthew Broderick) Wesleyan's priKluction was directed by Jeff Walter, assistant professor of music, and Joel Ferrell, a choreographer and guest from Casa Manana. Both must have spent a great amount of time working on this project. The music kept with...

The Rambler April 17, 1997 Vandiver ilo-hits Crusaders Freshman faces the minimum amount of batters, picks up NAIA national player of the week honors Greg Bocomol Staff writer Texas Wesleyan University freshman pitcher Justin Vandiver threw a no hitter, facing the minimum 21 batters, in the Rams 6-0 victory on Saturday against Mary Hardin-Baylor, at Red Murff Stadium. For his efforts, Vandiver was named not only the Heart of Texas Conference player of the week, but NAIA national player of the week. Vandiver earned two wins on the week, allowing only two runs in 13 innings while striking out 10 and he posted a 1.38 ERA. The only blemish in ihe game was a second inning walk to the Crusaders' Ryan Vaughn, who was promptly doubled off first base on running catch and throw from Thomas Hermann. "1 was very excited," Vandiver said. "Iwas pretty nervous throughout the whole game, especially the last inning. But I had all my pitches working for me, especially my curveball which I was getting...

Provost Armstrong said, "Dr. Cannici's position of a full time director of the center will be elimi- nated." Dr. Cannici said, "It's just a part of the reconstruction process.

I Adjunct professors sacrifice full benefits for experience Photo b> Chad Mitchell Adjunct professor Pat Nation Paul Bkymkk Staff writer . ' _ Texas Wesleyan has begun to utilize part-time or adjunct professors on a greater basis. Two types of adjuncts art those with full-time jobs, who teach on a part-time basis, and those who teach part-time and who are look- ing to move into the profession on a full time basis. They are paid on a per course basis with a maximum of three classes. The main differences between adjunct and full-time or tenure pro- fessors is, first of all, financial Adjunct professors usually earn up to $2,000 per course, while full-time professors usually have a starting salary of $35,000. The second major difference is over contracts. Adjuncts are Con- tracted orl a semester to semester basis while tenure professors have contracts which basically may run for life. There are advantages tor both the school and for adjunct profes- sors. For the teachers, there is t...

ft/ ■ i. NO SMOKWG m h ...Yet another group attempts mass suicide E j) \ 1 QUIA L School of Business should look no further I HE CANDIDATES came, the candidates went. The School of Business is back to square one when it comes to finding a permanent dean. The search has lasted as long as the semester. Of the four ?? candidates who were brought in for inter- views, candidate #1 drew unanimous nonacceptance. We at The Rambler breathed a sigh of relief when can- didate #2 was not chosen (he said he did not favor freedom of the press on a college campus). Candidate #3 refused the position and the other candidate did not draw much support. So for now, Louis McLain, interim dean 'of the School of Business, will serve as dean for a year. Then what? What exactly are the qualities Wesleyan is searching for in a dean? Leadership abili- ty? Experience? Of course. But more important to the Rambler staff is his or her ability to reach students. After all, the dean does more than meet with the pro...

If you haven't heard of it you now know why. The movie stars William Russ (TV's Boy Meets World) as Roy Dean Bream, a career minor league pitcher. Except for one cup of coffee in the majors, Bream is trying to hang onto the game for as long as he can. Bream befriends 17-year-old Tyrone Debray (Glenn Plummer), a rook- ie pitcher with the best-arm in the organization. Debray is black, which in 1957 still bothers some of the Tri-City Steamers, and the fact that Bream has become kind of a mentor to "the young Newcombe" b...

This bill is pre- sented to inform students of their rights and responsibilities. The student bHi is handy because it is such a small article, and allows the students to quickly check a reference instead of looking up information in the student handbook. While there are concerns about the student bill contradicting the faculty handbook in some areas, SGA has done a good job of not stepping on any toes. With planning and cooperation of the faculty and SGA, the end results will be beneficial for all. The students of a university are its backbone and it is their satisfaction that creates a happy environment for the community. The student bill has suggested that the professors should begin and end class on time. The bill also states that students have the right to ...

Well, Texas Wesleyan Summer School in Britain program otters these things and a whole lot more. The only drawback though is that you would have to go to summer- school.
