Law-centered group strives for better television
By Katiiy Muramoto
Do your. best friends visit you once a day for an hour
constantly interrupted by commercials and station identi-
fications? For some the television is man's best friend. While
TV is considered harmless by many others feel that it
takes away from time that could be spent with family and
friends or even just reading a good book.
Ed Hyncs is one such person. Hyncs is the Executive
Vice President for a law-centered non-profit organization
and community groups was set aside for the purpose of
discovering what else there was to do besides watch TV.
Hyncs said the organization hoped that adults and children
alike would lake a day to spend time with each other "get-
ting to know their families again."
Morality and Media also asked their supporters to
take their normal TV time and write letters to TV stations
and sponsors to let them know how offended they are at
certain TV programs.
In addition to this program Morality and Media will
be surveying daytime talk shows in February. The goal
said Hyncs is a "bias-free objective analysis."
Volunteers all over the nation have two forms they
called Morality and Media
Morality and Media was founded in 1962 and opcr- will use every day in February. One form requires basic

and offensively sexual:" and harmful is "promoting anti
The second form asks the volunteer to record any of
the following behavior observed on the show: humilia-
tion cursing threats lewd behavior etc.
Morality and Media will tabulate the results and rate
the talk shows accordingly. The hope is said
Hyncs "to embarrass and shame the sponsors into making
changes" in the programming.
"Around 2000 folks get our newsletter" said
Hyncs. Individuals as well as many Catholic organiza-
tions other churches the Salvation Army and Family Life
offices subscribe to the newsletter.
The purpose of the letter according to
Hyncs is to stay informed concerning what is going on
within organizations that are striving for the same goals.
Morality and Media stresses their relation to the law
because said Hynes "enforcement of the obscenity law is
what will make a difference. Nothing is obscene until a
prosecutor decides to call it obscene."
Hynes and Morality and Media want to reach the pub-
lic keeping it well informed educated and involved.

Also most sudents will not have to
learn to dance noted Baylor spokesman
"We've had dances for years in
downtown Waco" he said. Moving
them on-campus just seemed cheaper
and easier despite tradition.
"There are a lot of core values here
that will never change" he said.
"There'll probably be some of our
friends who will be upset But our stu-

Most students said they were excit-
