RING AROUND THE SINK

Brown water leaves a ring around the drain of a sink in Stella
Russell Hall. Tenants have been allotted supplies of bottled
drinking water due to the metallic taste of faucet water.

Huddleston said that,
although some residents have
complained that the water has a
slightly metallic taste, it is safe to
Huddleston said about 90
gallons of bottled drinking water
have been distributed to resi-
dents, and 360 more gallons were
brought in on Friday.
On Friday samples of the
water were taken for an iron test,
and results from this test should
be in around Sept. 15, according
A company called Scale Free
performed the cleaning process,
called descaling, in which the
hydrochloric acid is poured into
the pipes to eat the rust.
This process was successful
in removing rust from the pipes.
However, the chemicals which
were used also ate through some
of the disintegrating pipes, caus-
On June 13, major floods
occurred on the North and West
sides of the third floor, and water
from these leaks seeped through
to the second floor.
Because of these floors, the
carpet on the second and third
floors had to be replaced with
tile, costing over $20,000.
Huddleston said leaks have
been clamped since the flood
The total cost to replace all
the pipes is estimated at
$300,000. Huddleston said that,
once the replacement process is
begun, it will take approximately
90-100 days to complete.
Stella residents said they are
unhappy that administration
knew about the leaks during the
summer and did not inform them.
Lauren Smith, a sophomore
criminal justice major, said, "I
have a feeling that they knew
about this problem in the summer
and they did not inform us."
Junior business administra-
tion major Richard Ahlgren said
he feels that relocating the resi-
dents to a hotel would be the best
Ahlgren said, "After speak-
ing to both parties from [the
dorms], nobody wants [to be
moved to Elizabeth and O.C.
Armstrong Hall]. If you're in that
tight of quarters, it's going to be
difficult to get studying and
Ahlgren added, "I think [a
hotel] is probably the best solu-
tion to it."
Applin said, "We want to be
very sensitive to all of the needs*

facts of the case.
Alicea was arrested on a fed-
eral charge of probation viola-
tion, stemming from a 19<J4
forgery conviction. According to
the court records, he entered a
plea of "guilty" to the third
degree felony charge in the 241st
District Court of Smith County,
In Sept. 1994, Alicea was
ordered to pay restitution and
serve four years probation.
After his most recent arrest,
Alicea was taken to the Tarrant

County jail and later transferred
to Tyler to await further court
During his time at Wesleyan,
Alicea was active in several cam-
pus organizations. According to
a fellow member of Student
Ambassadors, he was instrumen-

Breeden, who worked close-
ly with Alicea, said, "Obviously
Robert [Alicea] is a man who is
in trouble, whatever that trouble
might be. I would hope that as a
community, we would all lift him
up to the Lord."
Beese serves Wesleyan student body as | r—
nurse and director of health services
Kandy Beese, nurse and director of health ser-
vices, was hired by Wesleyan's search committee
Aug. 7 to replace Kim Sullivan who is now a state
department inspector for hospitals.
Beese has been busy
arranging the upcoming
Health Fair to be held Sept.
21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in
the mall area on campus.
"Hopefully there will be
at least 20 people from the
community and different
organizations to set up
booths about health. We're
going to have alcohol, tobac-
co and crime prevention booths. There will be any-
thing health-related at the fair," said Beese.
"Besides being good at her professional skills,
she had the other skills needed for the new insur-
ance program. She has the administrative skills
and a good personality, one that can relate well to
the student body," said Peter Phaiah, director of
student life. N
Beese moved from Chicago to Fort Worth in
May with her husband, Zach, who took a transfer
with his job. She has been working in the health
services since Aug. 14.
"I like [my new job]. It's pretty busy here with
the new insurance program," said Beese.
"I would like to increase student awareness on
health issues and be more available to [the stu-
Beese grew up in Iowa and graduated from
Iowa State University. She has been a n<rse for
four years. She worked at a pediatric care unit in
Chicago and an adult intensive care unit in Kansas
"I became a nurse because I enjoy helping
people," she said. «
As director of health services and Wesleyan's
nurse, she runs the office and handles the general
"I pretty much run the the health center. There
is also a physical assistant, Laura Todd-Brown,"
she said. "She can prescribe anything that the stu-
dents need. Really, the only difference between her
and a doctor is behind the scenes with the medical
board," said Beese.
Dr. Robert Keller, the medical director, over-
sees the physical assistant.
The health center is located toward the front
Sid W. Richardson center, next to the gym in room
101. Wesleyan is presently building a new health
center to house the nurse and the sports medicine
It will be located by the pool reception area in
the Sid W. Richardson Center. The completion
date is unknown.
"You can see me if the physical assistant is not
here. If you need a doctor, I can give you the name
of one and make an appointment. [But] if you can,
wait until the physical assistant comes back," she
The health center provides physicals, pap
smears, prescriptions, vaccinations, blood pressure
checks or counseling.
"Students can come here for whatever you'd I
go to the doctor for. Whatever we can't provide,
we'll refer you to a doctor who can. You can make |
an appointment or come by. But if you need an
exam, it's best <o make an appointment," said |
Students with the new student health msur-j
ance plan are insured for 100 percent of the ser-j
vices received at the health center.
"If you go to a doctor listed in the provider!
directory, you will pay about 20 percent of yourf
expenses. If you go to a doctor who is not in the |
provider directory, you will have to pay about 40|
percent. Come here first and we can refer you to a|
doctor," said Beese.
President's house unoccupied due to renovation
In mid-September, Wesleyan President Harold
G. Jeffcoat will move into his family's new resi-
dence, the traditional president's house.
Jeffcoat and family
have yet to move into the
house, as former Wesleyan
president Jake B. Schrum's
family awaits renovation of
their new house and still

The current president's house, Jeffcoat said,
"is in the Park Hill district overlooking the Zoo."
"The history of the house dates back to around
1965, when Ed Baker, Sr. arranged for the gift of
the house to Wesleyan," said Quentin
McGown, director of Gift Planning in the
McGown said, "Prior to that  the
president and family used to live in a house
on campus. That was torn down and a new
house was built."
Jeffcoat is also aware of the history
behind the house. "Usually university presi-
dents have houses on campus. But because it
was a gift, Wesleyan liked it and decided to
keep it there," said Jeffcoat.
The "gift" has been home to about four
presidents since. President Jeffcoat said he
and his family hope to move into the house
In the meantime, Jeffcoat said that he and
his family are living in a nice apartment and
his two children, who attend Paschal High
School, can't wait to be near their new
