) V / r, u Faculty Reviews Evaluation Policies By SHANNON PHEIFFER, Daily Reporter Atty. Gen. John Hill's ruling that printouts of faculty evaluations are public under the Open Records Act has caused differences of opinion in several departments. The ruling, made upon the request of President C.C. Nolen, dealt with the request made by Dr. Lawrence Kelly of the history faculty to see a copy of the computer printout of faculty evaluations for every faculty member in the department. THE UNIVERSITY contended disclosing the information would be an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy and should be exempt from dis- closure under the Open Records Act. Hill's statement said personal privacy would not be invaded. "In our view, the public, as well as the other faculty members, has a significant interest in knowing student opinion regarding their instructor's performance at a state-supported institution," Hill said. Dr. Jim Pearson, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, said some of th...

Joe Hewitt. DAILY: What difference will it make for Denton if the city remains "wet"? FOGG: Denton will be neither better nor worse moral- ly after the election, so the issue boils down to a matter of economics. DAILY: How will it affect the economy? FOGG: If Denton remains wet, you have 24 retail out- lets that will remain in business and more than 250 jobs which are going to remain secure. You've got profits and paychecks that are going to be spent here for various goods. For many outlets, legal sales will continue acting as the most critical determinant of whether they struggle to get by or enjoy v...

Their new residence is an old three-story house east of Voertman's, on the corner of Oak and Fry. It's a large place with four kitchens, five bath- rooms and 11 bedrooms.

Students remember the old days when they had summers free to swim, ski, travel or just loaf. At least, they long for the days when all they did in the summer was work eight to five, with no study- ing afterwards. Teachers want to spend time with the kids (the kids at home) or work on their books or go to the Grand Canyon like the other daddies on the block. That's irostly all right. Everyone has to relax sometime. No one can hit the books year 'round without some kind of breather. However, when teachers continually cut class meetings short or cancel large numbers of class sessions, then expect students to know the material as well as they would had the teacher been in class to answer questions, it's not al...

The players think this is the year for the Mean Green, and most of them are talking about an undefeated season. "We have the leadership, experience and potential on this team to go 11-0 with the schedule we have," said David Ray, senior tight end. "Maybe 11-0 seems over our heads to the fans, but with the potential this team possesses, it's just a matter of us playing to our potential." RAY SAID he thinks he has the ex- perience and confidence to have a good year, but his play is more team oriented than personally oriented.

Summertime: Rates Rise; Drys Fall By ALLAN K. COOK, Daily Reporter Another local option election, possible rent decreases coupled with utility increases, a 25 per cent water and sewer rate hike and residence hall rate in- creases were among the stories in the news this summer, as students and area residents sweltered in record heat. The wet-dry issue was revived June 14 when leaders of several local churches filed a petition with the Denton County Clerk's Office calling for an election to prohibit the sale of beer and wine. The churches, affiliated with the Concerned Citizens of Denton, were led by the Rev. Joe Hewitt, a Richardson pastor specializing in local option elections. ON JUNE 17, the Student Associations of both NT and TWU, in addi- tion to other concerned parties, called a meeting to discuss campaign strat- egy. It was decided at the meeting that a voter registration drive would be held on the NT and TWU campuses June 20 through July 1. Many local beer and wine retailers ...

VMS PAGE 2—THE NORTH TEXA8 DAILY Tuesday, AuQust 30, 1977 An Editorial Union Efforts Gain Praise The thunderous conflict of the wet forces versus the dry forces in Denton has subsided, and in its calm NTSU is providing students with something they have long desired. One week from today the University Union will hold the grand opening of the Rock Bottom Lounge—which will serve beer and wine. Now students will finally have a place on .campus to relax after classes and listen to live entertainment over a beer or glass of wine. For the past six weeks, workmen have been in- stalling a bar, a back bar and refrigeration equip- ment in the Rock Bottom Lounge to prepare for beer and wine sales. It is to the credit of the Union staff that this work progr-ssed throughout the controversy of a wet versus dry Denton. Taking a "sit back and wait' attitude may have been safer for the Union, and postponing con- struction might have been less of a gamble; but student desires would ...

Gary Giddens of "The Village Voice" called Metheny a "guitarist who combines a ringing rock coloration with a soft hued lyricism," and Patrick MacDonald of the Seattle Times noted the "clean, spare, tasteful, intelligent lines he produces." Mays, who plays keyboards with the Metheny group, composed all but one of the cuts on the 1 O'Clock Lab Band's Grammy-nominated album, "Lab '75." He played with Woody Herman.

WW i M PAGE 4—THE NORTH TEXAS DAILY Center to Assist Science Studies Tuesday, August 30, 1977 By VICKI OBER Daily Reporter A new Physics Instructional Center in the Physics-Math Building will open for use this fall, Virginia Rawlins of the physics faculty said. Funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation, the center is unique to North Texas, Mrs. Rawlins said. Because of the growing and diversified needs of students in undergraduate physics courses at NT, the university has revitalized the methods of laboratory in- vestigations. STUDENTS will be given more in- dividual attention and a more per- sonalized education through the use of audio and visual media in the center, she said. The goal of the center is to increase student comprehension and to improve student attitudes toward the study of science in general and physics in par- ticular, Mrs. Rawlins said. Depending on the students' areas of study, different media will be used. The center houses 21 media carrels for in- d...

"This year's giving pattern is on trend. It seems we're going to have another record breaking year," he said. NT received a record $1.28 million in private donations in 1976.

"Overall I'm pleased with the progress we've made," Fry said. "But the second team began to look a little sloppy." Coach Fry said a lot of work had been accomplished, but he was glad that two- a-days had come to an end. "I know the players are glad to see two-a-days come to a halt," he said. The Mean Green begin their usual afternoon workouts Monday in prepara- tion for the 1:30 p.m. kickoff in Starkvil- le. Miss.

Spotlighting several new faces, the squad combined a dominating offense with a steady defense to whip the Texas Tech Red Raiders 5-1 before approx- imately 250 people at Fouts Field. The margin of the victory points to a strong NT team, as the Red Raiders figure to be contenders in the Texas Col- legiate Soccer League (TCSL), which NT has won the past two seasons. In Tech's opening contest Friday, an always tough Southern Methodist scored three times in the final 20 minutes to rally past the Raiders 3-1. FIVE PLAYERS scored goals for NT in the contest, as its pressuring of- fense paid off. The Mean Green kept the ball near the Tech goal constantly, out- shooting the visitors 27- It. NT opened...

As most of you are painfully aware, tuition fees, books and supplies at NT cost around $276.50 per semester. Room and board adds another $787 for a total cost of $ 1,063.50 each semester. The wealthy complain when writing out a $2,400 check for one semester at a private univer- sity like SMU and the poor rely heavily on finan- cial aid from scholarships and grants to low- interest loans. But for the middle-income family, supporting two or three college students at the same time can mean a run-in with financial ruin. Some families plan far in advance. Car and household finances are budgeted around the ar- rival of college bills. Earnings from the student's first job in high school often go straight into a sav- ings account for college. Whether the money is handed to you on a sil...
