U.S. patrol gains
LONDON (AP)—Britain, France, the
Netherlands and Italy announced Monday they
will take part in a U.S.-sponsored force to patrol
the Sinai after Israel completes its withdrawal
from the war-captured Egyptian territory in
The announcements was delayed for three
weeks by what diplomats said was a struggle over
wording to avoid angering Israel and the Arab
states and to satisfy the 10 Common Market
A British Foreign Office spokesman, quoting
Foreign Secretary Lord Carrington, said an at-
tempt was made to provide “a statement which is
the least provocative to everybody.”
Syria summoned the Italian ambassador to
Damascus to protest Italy’s approval, calling it
participation “in American occupation of Arab
territories," the state news agency SANA said.
In Jerusalem, the Israeli government said the
announcement’s wording “seems in contradic-
tion to the Camp David agreements" but with-
held a decision on whether to veto European par-
Arab's peace plan
FEZ. Morocco (AP) —A majority of Arab
League members favors Saudi Arabia’s Mideast
peace plan but opposition from hardliners
prhbably will prevent the league from formally
endorsing it, conference sources said Monday.
The debate over Crown Prince Fahd’s eight-
point plan — which has received favorable com-
ments in Washington and European capitals and
condemnation from Israel — was taking place
behind closed doors in advance of the 20-nation
league summit that opens Wednesday. The
Palestine Liberation Organization is also a
member of the league.
The seventh of Fahd's eight points proposes
“recognition of the right of all states in the (Mid-
dle East) region to live in peace” under U.N.
guarantees. The Reagan administration has said
the wording is a major step because it implies
recognition of Israel by the Saudis, who have
considered it a "Zionist entity."
denies riot blame
HOUSTON (AP) — The special master ap-
pointed to oversee reforms in the Texas Depart
ment of Corrections denounced as irresponsible,
state officials who have blamed his investigators
for the recent wave of prison violence.
Vincent M. Nathan, a Toledo. Ohio, attorney
appointed to monitor changes in the state’s
prison facilities, said he was shocked Gov. Bill
Clements and Attorney General Mark White
would accuse his office of provoking inmate un-
Fifty prisoners were injured last Friday during
a two-hour riot at the Eastham Unit near Trinity.
It was the third violent confrontation between in-
mates and guards in seven days.
Clements accused Nathan of "causing severe
problems in the prison system . . . causing the
prisoners to get restless."
Nathan was appointed as special master by
U.S. District Judge William Wayne Justice of
Tyler, who ordered sweeping reforms to ease
overcrowding and to stop alleged abuse of the in-
mates’ constitutional rights.

Student storytellers to spin yarns
By ALISA SIMMONS
Students in a new course at NT, Storytelling Art and
Youth Programs, of the School of Library and Infor-
mation Sciences will get a chance to use their training in
a program for the Denton State School Dec.2.
The II storytelling students will use their gram-
matical and dramatic skills in the program titled "A
Gift of Stories," Nancy Brizendine, teacher of the
course and doctoral student, said
“The program is the finished product of the storytell-
ing class, which uses special techniques, such as pup-
pets, flannel boards and overhead transparencies, to tell
stories,” she said.
The stories come from different countries including
the United States, Brizendine said.
She said stories will involve gifts of some kind, incor-
porating the idea of giving and sharing, which is "what
the Christmas season is all about.
"The program is meant for entertainment but also al-
lows people to enjoy the beauty of language and share
in communication,” Brizendine said.
The almost lost art of storytelling, she said, is the
oldest form of literature and provides direct contact
with the audience.
“Kids today are so tuned in to the media, they never
experience this form of entertainment and receive little
educational stimulation from television.” she said.
“They are missing an important segment ofliterature
and don’t realize the many variations stories have, such
as Cinderella, for example.
“Storytelling is something you share, and it is also
Brizendine became interested in this form of
literature through an elementary school teacher and her
grandfather, who "were the greatest storytellers of all
time,” she said.
When Dr. Dewey Carroll, dean of the School of
Library and Information Sciences, suggested the
course, Brizendine was very eager to teach it, she said.
Clients and staff members at the Denton State
School arc very excited about the event, Ed
Hutchinson, psychology assistant at the school, said
"We are getting an excellent response and are having
trouble finding a large enough room to hold everyone,”
Hutchinson said the program “is the kind of personal
contact we need at the school."
George O’Daniel, assistant volunteer services coor-
dinator at the school, said storytelling is a “pleasurable,
entertaining human contact, which will be beneficial in
providing partial stimulus to the students'
More than 100 clients of the state school will attend
the program, which is geared to three different age
levels and mental capabilities, he said.
NT students will benefit from the program, O’Damel
said, because of the large cross section of people in the
“They’ll know if they’re good at storytelling by the
reaction of the audience," he said.
O’Daniel said any NT student wanting to gain ex-
perience working at the school should contact
Volunteer Services at the school and they will be "hap-
py to help with anything that is beneficial to their
Any work will be documented, he said, which will
look very impressive on a resume or job application.
I he storytelling class will noia another program at
the Denton Public Library Dec. 12, which is rpen to the
public, Brizendine said.
The show for children in preschool through
kindergarten is from 9 to 10 a.m., she said.
First through third graders will be from 10 to II a.m,
and fourth graders and older may watch the program
from 11 to noon.
The storytelling course will be taught for a second
time at NT during the first summer session, Brizendine
“Library students are enrolled in the class now, but
education majors would find it useful, along with
anyone who works with or is interested in kids,” she
Society sums zero
Author to talk money
Dr. Lester Carl Thurow of the economics and
management faculty at the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology will discuss his best-selling book “Zero
Sum Society” today from 3 to 5 p.m. in Business Ad-
ministration Building 116.
Thurow is appearing at NT at the invitation of Dr.
Richard Armey, chairman of the economics depart-
Thurow's discussion will include Reaganomics and
United States economy. He will also discuss the thesis
of his book. Thurow states that the economy has
reached a point in development where redistribution,
not economic growth is the problem.
Armey said Thurow believes growth economics no
longer works for the United States. He believes a larger
portion for one group will mean a smaller portion for
Thurow’s book, which made the 1980 Washington
Post best-selling non-fiction list, is on sale at area
bookstores in hardback and paperback editions.
Thurow was born in Livingston, Mont , and received
his Ph.D in economics from Harvard University in
Massachusetts at the age of 26. He formerly taught
economics and mangement at Harvard University
before his transfer to the Massachusetts Institute of
In 1964-65 he was on the council of Economic Ad-
visers under former President Lyndon B. Johnson.
Currently, Thurow is contributing editor to
Newsweek magazine. He was a member of the New
York Times editorial board in 1979; the Time magazine
Board of Economics for 1980; and was an economics
columnist for the Los Angeles Times in 1979-81 and for
the New York Times for 1980-81.
Thurow will also be the guest on Channel 25 on
“World Watch” Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. Hosting the
show will he Dr. Milan Reban of the political science
faculty. Reban said the discussion will include
Thurow's view of Reaganomics and his reaction to the
November article in Atlantic Monthly magazine about
Budget Director David Stockman’s criticism of the ad-
ministration’s eonomic plan.

NT to modify buildings

with an energy conservation project, Donald Denney,
NT construction manager, said.
The eight buildings are the Industrial Arts Building,
University Union, Kerr Hall, Language Building,
Physics Building, Business Administration Building,
Willis Library and Music Practice Building, Denney
A federal grant with legislative funds appropriated
will be used to pay for the work.
The cost is undetermined because the project needs
to he signed by a contractor, Denney said, and the ex-
tent of work needed varies.
He said modifications include working on interior
lighting to make it more energy efficient, changing the
air conditioning from a double-duct to a single-duct
system and altering the University Union’s boilers for
He said changes will be made in the range hood in the
kitchen of Kerr Hall
He said the project is split into two contracts.
"The reason for splitting them up is to save time. It
takes so much time to do a project if one contractor
does it all, and it takes them longer to complete the
work so we split the grant money up in order to com-
plete the project on time," Denney said.
He said one of the contracts has been negotiated, but
still needs to be signed and the other contract is now
