The actual school building is on one block and the other three blocks are used for park- ing. Bill Hatley, director of law school relations, said "The most positive aspect about moving the law school this summer is that we are no\V in close proximity to the judicial and legal community and it offers better opportunities for our students." The move to downtown was financed through the city of Fort Worth w ith floating tax bonds worth 13.3 million dollars that was approved by the tax exempt bonds authority. According to President Jake Schrum the bonds were initial- ly purchased by an insurance com- pany in San Antonio and the univer- sity and the law school will make payments to them.

The Rambler September 17, 1997 • 5 fl/R* i! Team realignment favored by baseball fans Ahh, realignment. Ahh, radical realignment. Ahh, the Texas Rangers and the Houston Astros in their own divi- sion? Could happen. So could about nine other possibilites that have swirled around the realignment committee like trash and debris at Candlestick Park. The committee, started by act- ing commissioner Bud Selig and headed by Boston Red Sox owner John Harrington has many options to choose from. The apple of their eye radical realignment,, however, is dead. No matter how much they deny it. The radical plan had 15 teams switching leagues divisions pared down to just two per league and more regional rivalries than you could shake a Dodger Dog at. Selig, the man who brought interleague baseball to a corporate- named stadium near you, is choking on that apple. The owners, it seems, are not as dumb as they appear on television or in the the newspapers. Why not, you ask? For the simple reason that t...

The play itself, however, is. The Wesleyan theater department will open its season with a female version of Neil Simon's The Odd Couple, directed by Brown. "This is a very pleasing show," said Brown, who hasn't directed in several years. "People can just come and relax and not have to think too much. It's great end of summer entertain- ment." The interaction among the characters in the female version is very much like that in the original play. Brown said that he wanted to choose a play that had more women than men because the other mainslage Wesleyan produc- tions for the season are heavy on male roles. Brown said that despite the female dominant cast, "It's just as interesting to any type of audience."

The play runs at the Firestation Theatre Sept. 25-28. Julie Terrell Staff writer Watching the first half of The Odd Couple was like starting a car in cold weather. It took a while for it to warm up, but once it got going, the play became quite entertaining. Stephanie Garlberg as the clue- less Vera sets the rhythm for the rest of the actors in the first half. She was the first one to actually get me laughing. "Are you on Valium? Does it take speed for you to catch up with the rest of us?" Sylvie (Jessie Kennedy) barks at one of Vera's remarks. One of the best lines was Vera admitting to talking to a secu- rity guard at the modern art museum for 20 minutes before real- izing the guard was a statue. The pace of the play picks up when Florence Unger, (Jaqui Benton), moves into Olive Madison's apartment after h...

Its whole purpose is to control flocks of migratory birds using a non-lethal procedure," Howell said.
