They're Stacey and Tracey Dean, and they're playing together on Wesleyan's softball team for the first time this year. The .Dean sisters have been playing softball together for 15 years. They played on the same teams in summer leagues and were both on varsity at Keller High School.

The Rambler April 28,1999 The electronic leash gets * very annoying Sarah McMillan Staff writer The advent of wireless communication has brought about a worldwide phenomenon of constant communication. Daily inno- vations in cell phones, pager*, fax machines, . e-mail and voice mail have made it so much easier for Cindy to find out from Judy what Tom said Bill said about her at the malj yesterday. Is this really what Alexander Graham Bell had in mind? I am a big fan of modern technology, but enough is enough already. Why does every 13- year-old feel the self-important need to carry a multicolored pager or cell phone that seems to shrink to sizes smaller than the ears they press them against? 1 guess I'm just a skeptic when it comes to being wired for the rest of the world reach to me on demand like the rest of the new breed of dig- ital citizens.

Enrollment, from page I a lot to the phenomenon called "stop- out students". Henderson said "stop-out" stu- dents are those who leave to work. Some do so to save money tor Wesleyan's tuition or attend to person- al matters >uch as marriage and/or children. "Some people leave just to work because the job markets are so attractive right now," Henderson said. Secondly, Henderson said people have expectations about what college should be, and because most of these are formed by movies, which tend to portray big state schools,, they have to make an adjustment to Wesleyan's more intimate environment. "A lot of people have seen movies like Animal House and have preconceptions about college. Wesleyan's just not like that." "But," Henderson said, "there are a lot of opportunities for involvement and leadership here that just don't exist at bigger universities." Thirdly, Henderson said, "unfortu- nately, some individuals cannot become acclimated to the academic demands of further education...

Krishna Chambers CONTRIBUTING WRITER The word "counselor" can send many people into a nervous, sweat. They have images of couched and quirky old men with spectacles and a notepad, quizzing them about their childhood memories. Fortunately for Wesleyan students, Debby Wines, the university's licensed professional counselor, defies this old Freudian cliche image. Two comfortable armchairs facing one another have replaced the couch, and the quirky old man asking intrusive questions has evolved into soft-spoken woman who prefers to use a discussion method of counseling. Wines had 26 years of counseling experience before coming to Wesleyan in fall 1998. A divorced mother of one adult daughter. Wines strives to bring comfort and ease into her counseling sessions.

I I The Rambler September 8, 1999 5 Men's soccer begins season facing upset Natasha Garcia CONTRIBUTING WRITER 1 he men's soccer team started off their season with two losses on Aug. 27 and Aug. 31. They played Midwestern University and Incarnate Word, respectively. Tough losses against both of these teams gave Texas Wesleyan a misleading 0-2 record. Despite the fact that Incarnate Word and Midwestern have been considered for the top 20 ranking in the nation, the Wesleyan soccer team gave their opponents a formi- dable challenge. "I think we played solid, but we had a few lapses and the oppo- sition capitalized on them," junior defender Brent Stapleton said. Head coach Kenny Medina said lie was not disappointed with his team's play against Incarnate Word. "We played well. We had opportunities to put them away, but we didn't score," he said. The Rams kept the game scoreless until the final half of overtime, when Midwestern scored a "fluke goal" to end the game at 0-1. Wesleyan put up...

Jones and his partner Josh Urbaniak, a former Texas Wesleyan student, bought the restaurant • in June with the financial backing of Jones' father and a partner of his. Jones said, "I had always thought I would like to retire and run my own Italian restaurant." It seems he has an early start on what should be a successful venture. The restaurant was previ- ously owned by Sal Saviano and had been a good-money- maker in its high traffic loca- tion at the coiner of Euless Main Street and Highway 10. Jones and Urbaniak have enjoyed renewing their friend- ship that began in second grade. Urbaniak said, 'it can be busy but now we get to hang out everyday during the downtime.

It hurts the alumni office not to have one, but it will hurt the stu- dents most of all." Pitts said the alumni office is willing to help in any way they can, but this would have to be student led. Advancement is willing to help Jis well as well as Student Life, said Phaiah. Professors have also offered to be advisors as long as there's a budget for the yearbook. Areas of concern are staffing, housing, and funding. Staff posts could possibly be offered as credit- earning internships to students in several departments, and these internships would eventually turn into paid posts. "It would be a pub- lication done by the students for students, and they'll learn as they go along. It would also be great for resume building," Phaiah said.

Reading Council fights for literacy in area schools Donna Hanky LIFE EDITOR Each spring, as university students long for the promises of graduation or of a summer away from studies, they are unaware that Wesleyan has become the site of a war. The "soldiers" are students from several area elementary schools and the "weapons" are books. For the past several years Dr. Twyla Miranda, professor of educa- tion, has acted as the head of the "war council" during "The Battle of the Books" which is sponsored by the Texas Wesleyan Reading Council. "Teams are made up of students from area schools, both public and pri- vate," said Miranda, faculty adviser to the council. "We work closely with their reading teachers throughout the year.

Carter who is the chairman of Chase Bank of Texas said that at Chase they do an annual survey to find out if the company i$ ways are efficient. 'This is, not faculty versus administration.

'This is an opportunity for all of us to give some input and get some feed- back on how we can improve." The project was broken into two phases: the qualitative and the quantitative.
