The cyclists covered a five mile route, starting and finishing at the square. The ride was held July 3 at midnight. By KENNETH WASHINGTON Daily Reporter Within a week, former NT defensive back Bruce Bell will find himself in a situation that he never imagined would be possible, but it is one that he welcomes. Bell will enter the Dallas Cowboys' training camp Sunday in Thousand Oaks, Calif., as one of 13 free agents signed by Dallas. Bell is the only new defensive back the Cowboys signed. "Dallas has always been my favorite team," Bell said, "and being from Dallas adds something to playing for the Cow- boys. I can remember stopping to watch them practice as I was on my way to school.

The court chose Saturday, Aug. 6, as the best day to have the election, then in a special session Tuesday the court decided to hold the election in the Denton High School gymnasium, 1007 Fulton. The high school was chosen because of possible construction of the Civic Center Community Building, said Mary Jo Hill, Denton county clerk. THE LEGAL adviser for the dry forces, L.A. Nelson, initially asked the court to set the date for Aug. 13, the Saturday following the end of the second summer sessions at NT and TWU. This date was not in accordance with the law concerning when a local option election can be called. The law states ...

Thursday, July 14, 1977 An Editorial Election Costs County Concerned Citizens of Denton (CCD) has suc- ceeded in forcing another wet-dry election, the se- cond in a little more than a year. And, no doubt, the newest election will not resolve the issue for very long. Apparently, the issue has changed the democratic principle of majority rule into, at the least, the best two out of three elections. If wet forces succeed in keeping Denton wet, another local option may follow before the year ends if the courts rule in favor of the dry forces who contested the original election. If the courts invalidate the first election, it will have to be restaged. There is little doubt that the students will revive the issue after the required one-year waiting period should Denton be voted dry. And what if Denton should be voted dry and wet forces contest the election? The same court would be hearing cases on ...

Partly as a result, almost 200 voters had gone to the County Clerk's office to vote absentee by Wednesday, the second day of absentee voting. "Normally there would only be about 10 to 20 votes cast at this early stage," one voting deputy said. Almost 100 applications have been submitted re- questing absentee ballots, according to the county clerk's office. Both forces are offering rides to and from the county courthouse to anyone wishing to vote absentee. Wet forces can be contacted by calling 383-2357. Dry forces can be contacted at 382-1449, 387-5269, or 382-2577. A new wet force, Denton Citizens for Common Sense (DCCS), sent out 1,200 letters to students and staf...

I1 I j Actor Depicts Poe Friday Kesterson Defends Writer's Character By LEIGHTON WINGATE Daily Reporter Having to rise above the image of oneself as a half-crazed, drunken madman is difficult, especially if one is dead. Edgar Allan Poe, the master of the macabre, has been bearing this burden since his death, at the age of 40, in 1849. Dr. David Kesterson of the English faculty is one fan of Poe who hopes that Jerry Rockwood, in his characterization of Poe Friday in the Lyceum, will not dwell too heavily on the popular image of the 19th-century writer. An ex- perienced New York actor, Rockwood will present his program at I p.m. as part of the Fine Arts Series. Admission will be free. ROCKWOOD, WHO does for Poe what James Whitmore does for Will Rogers and what Hal Holbrook does for Mark Twain, has been working in the performing media for the past 25 years. He has directed plays in community theaters, ...

Some schools have live mascots, but NT has a bell. Live eagles shed feathers, fall asleep at football games and require a special diet. But you don't have to feed a bell. In the late 1800's and early 1900's it was a curfew bell. Its peal rang out from atop the old Normal Building (named when NT was known as Texas Nor- mal College in 1890). It rang at 5 p.m. to urge students to rest their minds and exercise their bodies with a walk around the campus. The 7 p.m. ringing was a warning for students to retire to their boarding houses for the night. They had only 10 minutes to get there— or else. A popular annual April Fool joke was for students to steal the clapper from the bell. In the book "The Story of North Texas" by Dr. James L. Rogers is a story that the clapper once disappeared fo...
