' Domino's Pizza to donate to non-profit group
By Marty Roves
Domino's Pizza will serve more than pizza Monday and
Tuesday. During these two days the local pizza deliv-
ery store will work with Community Action an Abilene
"We're going to give away 10 percent of the sales that
we make at both of our stores ... those days" said Earlenc
Martinez marketing director of Sharp Enterprises which
owns the local Domino's franchise.
Martinez said a live radio remote will broadcast for two
hours from the Domino's located next to the Radford Hills
Cinema III on Ruswood during which time people may
receive a free drink and a free slice of pizza at cither store
and learn addition information about Domino's involve
ment with Abilene non-profit organizations.
Seventy-two non-profit organizations exist in Abilene.
"In one way or another they all seem to help each other out
hand-in-hand" she said. "We're giving away 10 percent of
our profits each month to different organizations."
Max Bowersox junior physics major from Houston who
delivers pizzas for Domino's said "They probably get
more than what they are expecting'."
Martinez said Domino's worked with Hope Haven in
March. Domino's also donated and installed an eight-line
phone system with four phones from one of the old stores
to the Food Dank of Abilene and worked with Franklin
Middle School in the Adopt-a-School program.
Domino's will work with the Noah Project which shel-
ters battered women and children and will sell individual
slices of pizza to help purchase playground equipment for
Ortiz Elementary she said.
In June Domino's will help the Abilene Philharmonic
Orchestra. Martinez said it also will begin raising funds in
August to build a house Oct. 8 with Habitat for Humanity.
Domino's also is working to feed more ACU students
she said adding that the group has served pizzas at four
different functions in the past month.
The two local Domino's corporately were owned until
February 1993 when siblings Jonathan Sharp from New
Jersey and Dccca Hahn from Abilene bought the stores
making them franchise-owned and family owned by Abi-
lene residents she said.
Hahn earned a bachelor's of science degree in 1983 and a
master's of education degree in 1985 from ACU. She cur-
rently is working on a master's of business administration
degree at ACU.
Students to visit:::
as missionaries ;T
Studont Reporter l'l
pproximately 25 students will partjei-
Lpate in missionary work this summer'
when four campaigns attempt to establish' a
Christian foundation in foreign countries.
Dr. Leslie Bennett missionary-in-rcsi-dence
said summer campaigns began in
1981 and have continued since that time
Dr. Bob Buchanan missionary-in-resf-dence
has led summer campaigns since
This year Buchanan will lead a cam-
paign scheduled to arrive jrMhjPJiHippines
May 27. The campaign will entail mission-
ary and survey work to determine the most
suitable location for a permanent mission-
Buchanan said his campaign comprises
younger students as compared to years
He said he has three goals for the cam-
paign: to acquaint people with the culture
and needs of the nation to offer support to
the missionaries and national Christians
and to give a fundamental opportunity to
teach Christ to those participating in the
Although some view missionary work as
somewhat glamorous Buchanan stressed
the campaign is not a vacation. "These peo-
ple who go on the campaigns come back
exhausted" he said
However the work is rewarding
Buchanan said. "Beautiful friendships
develop as a result of the campaigns; most
last a lifetime" Buchanan said.
He also said he docs not expect the
team's work to pay off immediately.
"We arc not interested in coming back
with a good press release. We want to teach
truth. If the people are ready to commit
then great but we want to lay a solid foun-
dation" he said.
Buchanan's campaign will end July 10
but he said he plans to stay in Thailand
untjl Aug. 12.
Ken Sinclair missionary-in-rcsidence
will take approximately six people to four
nations in Eastern Asia including Indone-
sia Malaysia Singapore and Thailand. The
group will leave July 6 and return to the
states Aug. 12 J;
Sinclair said his main goal for the can-
paign is to expose students to cross-cultural
evangelism to possibly inspire a srjori
internship in one of the countries visited .
Other campaigns will be in Russia and
the Ukraine and the leaders will be mis

Committee selects 1994-95 Prickly Pear Optimist editors
By Mark Houston
Accent Page Editor
Marty Rcves and Kelly Davidson were
selected Tuesday to assume the editor
positions for two student publications
Revcs was named the 1995 Prickly Pear
editor in chief and Davidson was- named
the 1994-95 Optimist editor in chief.
Reves said she will wait to brainstorm
ideas for the yearbook until the staff for
next year's book is chosen so the group can
generate ideas together
"My plans arc to finish this year's book
before starting next year's" said Reves
senior journalism major from Denver City.
Reves is currently a copy editor and peo-
ple section editor for the Prickly Pear
However Revcs said that during her
interview for the position her interviewees
generated some ideas to promote yearbook
sales including increasing promotion to
uppcrclassmen keeping the Public Rela-
tions Student Society of America actively
involved witii sales and asking social clubs
to pay for their spreads before their photos
For the Optimist Davidson junior
newscditorial major from Mansfield said
her selection was unexpected although she
applied uncontested. "1 thought it would be
really embarrassing if I was the only who
applied and they didn't hire me" she said.
Because Davidson said she has had no
past experience working on a newspaper
staff she wants to study newspaper design
and production and use her editorship as
her Senior Honors Project although she
has not finalized permission for the project.
"I plan on doing extensive research over
the summer on how the newspaper can bet-
ter serve its audience" Davidson said.
To help research audience preferences
Davidson said she wants to issue a survey
asking students for suggestions. "Maybe
they want more about things to do in Abi-
lene" she said. "If that's what they want
then that's what they should get more of"
Reves and Davidson were interviewed
extensively by a committee consisting of
Optimist adviser Dr. Charlie Marlcr chair-
man of the Department of Journalism and
Mass Communication; Dr. Merlin Mann
associate professor of journalism and mass
communication; Dr. Cheryl Bacon assis-
'intprqfcsspr Qf journalism and mass com-
nuTnfcation; ACU president Dr. Royce
