Banker to present seminar
Dr. W. Michael Cox will present “The Deficit Shadow” at the Eco-
nomic Workshop meeting at 3:30 p.m. today in Wooten Hall 322.
Cox, a senior economist from the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, will
discuss the federal deficit, the federal government and future implications
for the economy during the seminar.
Steve Huenneke, Denton graduate student and president of the group,
said the meeting should be stimulating and of general interest to NT stu-
dents because Cox is an authority on economics.
Cox has written a number of publications in professional journals, books
and in the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas’ Economic Review.
His primary research interests are international finance, domestic mone-
tary policy and government debts and deficits.
The workshop is an organization whose members include economics
majors as well as economics faculty members. The workshop meets peri-
odically to discuss current economic issues.
Huenneke said he encourages all students to attend the meeting.

Witness talks about bonds
AUSTIN (APF—A key prosecution witness testified Wednesday that
Attorney General Jim Mattox never mentioned municipal bonds in the
conversation when he allegedly threatened to "go to war" with the Hous-
ton law firm of Fulbright & Jaworski.
Mattox, charged with commercial bribery, is accused of threatening to
withhold his needed approval of public bonds handled by Fulbright &
Jaworski unless the firm stopped trying to question his sister in another
But under stem cross-examination, Fulbright & Jaworski bond chiel
Wiley Caldwell testified that during his June 15, 1983, telephone con-
versation— when he said Mattox threatened war-—the firm’s bond busi-
ness wasn’t discussed.
Moon loses parole appeal
WASHINGTON (AP)—The U S. Parole Commission Wednesday denied
parole to the Rev. Sun Myung Moon, the spiritual leader of the Unifica-
tion Church who is serving an 18-month sentence for income tax evasion.
Moon began serving his prison sentence July 20 at a medium-security
prison in Danbury, Conn. His new projected release date, which takes
into account good behavior, is Aug. 20, according to Justice Department
spokesman Joe Krovisky.
In denying parole to the 64-year-old Moon, “the commission said the
normal amount of time for someone serving prison for this type of offense
is 10-14 months. It saw no mitigating circumstances to reduce that time
in the case of the Rev. Mr. Moon,” Krovisky said.
Houston investigates official
HOUSTON (AP)—A top administrator in the Houston Police Depart-
ment is being investigated by the city's personnel department after appar-
ently violating a city policy which forbids high-ranking officials from
taking days off for overtime work, according to a published report.
The Houston Post reported Wednesday that Robert Wasserman, a
$56,000-a-year police administrator, took 31 days off as overtime com-
pensation in the last 13 months.
False alarms lead
to system change
By KRIS MEIER
Heat detectors are being changed back to smoke detectors m the PE Building
after causing false alarms, disturbed classes and hot tempers.
Ray McFarlane, director of facilities, planning and construction, said the
cause of the false alarms is the draft that occurs when students open the doors
on cold days.
“When the doors are constantly open, the air inside cools down. After class-
es begin, the air heats up rapidly, causing the detectors to go off,” he said.
“When the alarms are set off, the computer in the Physical Plant, which is in
charge of all of the utilities on campus, notifies the campus police, who then
dispatch an officer to the location.
“When the officer arrives, he must decide the nature of the fire, its location
and if more emergency equipment is needed.”
A building employee, who asked not to be identified, said, "So far the
police have been great. It has taken only 45 seconds for them to arrive. Today,
no one arrived. We had to call them and ask where and when they would
arrive.” He is one of several PEB employees who said they wished not to be
identified for fear of losing their jobs.
The new system, which was installed four years ago with the help of Joe
Warner, NT environmental health and safety officer, is designed to detect rises
in temperatures instead of smoke.
Gene Scoggins, Physical Plant supervisor, said, “It has been proved that
other things besides smoke can and will set off the smoke detectors. Because of
this, the new heat detectors were installed.”
Victor Sandoval, Physical Plant employee, said no police or engineers arrived
when the alarms went off because of computer problems at the Physical Plant.
“The computer was down at the time, and we did not even know of the alarm,”

Students receive awards
Corps honors cooperative education efforts
By INGRID WATSON
Isabel Perez and James Ross, anthropology students,
received awards from the U.S. Army Corps, of Engi-
neers last week for their work with the corps in coop-
erative education, said Dr. Larry Naylor of the
In a ceremony in NT President Al Hurley’s office,
Brig. Gen. Robert J. Dacey, Commanding Officer
of the Southwestern Division of the Corps, presented
a U.S Army Certificate of Appreciation to Perez,
Quito, Ecuador junior, and a Special Act Award,
which includes $50, to Ross, Carrollton senior.
NAYLOR SAID the students participated in the
Second New World Conference on Rescue Arch-
aeology held last November in Dallas.
“It was the efforts of the Corps and others to hold
a conference where public engineers and archaeolo-
gists would examine the interface between them,”
Nalor said. “It was an attempt to integrate achaeology
into major construction projects, with emphasis on

making suggestions,” he said.
Perez said she helped with translations when
necessary, and wrote a critique on the conference
after two months of collecting data for a final report.
Naylor said the Corps will forward the report to
the Organization of American States.
Ross is involved in other projects, Naylor said.
“He is becoming familiar with operations and plan-
ning in archaeology and grant application."
Ross said he is involved in a project synthesizing
known information on archaelogical site remains on
the Little River Basin in Oklahoma and Southwest-
THE PROJECT is designed to show where arch-
aeology is needed and how to be more cost effi-
cient, he said.
Perez knew about the award a few days before
the presentation, but Ross said he was surprised.
“I was helping to design the certificate for Isabel
Perez,” be said. “When I went in to the chancellor’s
office, I heard them mention another recipient." Ross
then realized that he was the other recipient.
Naylor said the event will bring recognition to NT.
the anthropology program and the students.
