President Trauth to switch roles with student for a day to raise scholarship funds By Nikki Dawson News Reporter Meetings with administrators, assistants and appointments with university leaders are what one student will look forward to as he assumes President Denise Trauth’s position on April 14 in The Big Switch. Meanwhile, Trauth will attend classes and mingle with students in their environment as she plays the role of student. The Big Switch is an annual fund-raising event hosted by the Student Foundation. Members of the foundation will sell tickets in The Quad today and Wednesday and at student organization meetings for $1 each. The money from the ticket sales will be added to a general scholarship fund for Texas State students. The organization hopes to raise at least $500, said Thomas McDonald, public relations liaison for the Student Foundation and mass communication senior. A student name will be drawn from the pool of entries at 4 p.m. Thursday in the Student Foundation office. Trauth and the student will meet at 8:45 a.m. April 14 to switch roles and will meet at noon to return to their usual positions. Although it is a Texas State tradition, this is the first year the Student Foundation has highly publicized the event. The Big Switch will allow a student to understand what it is like to be the executive administrator of a university and will give Trauth the opportunity to interact and hear from students, said Ismael Amaya, Mentoring Program Coordinator and Student Foundation adviser. “The event gives Dr. Trauth an opportunity to experience what students experience as part of their daily routines, and professors are asked not to alter their lectures in any way,” Amaya said. “Dr. Trauth will be in the role of (the) student herself and therefore will participate in class like any other student would.” For more information on the event, contact the Student Foundation office at 245-3469.

Faculty, staff plan to get wet for the university
By Katherine Eissler News Reporter
This year’s University Fund Drive theme, “Now, more than ever,” demonstrates the faculty and staff’s collective vision to advance as a whole. The fund drive, now in its 27th year, was implemented by William
L. Deck, former professor of industrial technology, as a way for faculty and staff to make donations to the university and has been an integral part of the university’s Annual Giving program. To heighten awareness, mark the end of the drive and have some sun, the Texas State University Advancement Office and the fund drive will host Dunkin’ for Dollars Not Doughnuts from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday in The Quad. Faculty and staff have volunteered, some warily, to take an unavoidable dip in the dunking

booth. A donation bucket will be on site for those who would like to have a throw for $1 to dunk some of the university’s deans, professors and other staff members. Elizabeth Frisbey, University Advancement development officer, said the fund drive has set a goal of 62 percent participation by its “family” faculty and staff to beat last year’s rate of 56 percent. Percent of participation is more important than dollar amounts because it shows external donors how much alumni and staff support the university.
“When we see participation, the dollars will follow,” Frisbey said. “How can we not support ourselves and ask for their support? It’s a strength statement. We are all a part of a community, and we all believe in higher education or we wouldn’t be here. It’s being engaged that matters.” Co-chairs of the fund drive — Jen Beck, assistant director of campus recreation, and Chris Frost, psychology professor and honors program coordinator — have issued g See DRIVE, page 3
New program to raise money for school supplies
By Julie Suenram News Reporter
Students of all ages are being offered the opportunity to give as well as receive in the name of education. The Golden Key International Honor Society will host a Taco Cabana fund-raiser today in order to purchase school supplies for the students of Travis Elementary. Golden Key will also joint sponsor a Personal Statement workshop with Phi Alpha
In an attempt to establish an Honor Council at Texas State, a task force has been working for three years to collect information about academic cheating at the university. “The data shows 75 percent of students cheat in some form or fashion whether they are aware it’s cheating or not,” said Michael Blanda, biochemistry professor. Blanda addressed the Associated Student Government about the importance of developing a council at Texas State during its Monday meeting. He is a member of the task force implemented by former President Jerome Supple in Fall 2000. The task force is comprised of students, professors, deans and other faculty. Initially, they studied literature on honor councils at universities nationwide. The task force found that often students and professors have different ideas about what is cheating. The task force also found the

Author examines problems in public education By Kay Richter News Reporter In the controversy surrounding the debate on problems with the Texas public education system, at least one voice “refuses to stand silently by.” The voice belongs to Carl Glickman, School Improvement Mitte Endowed Chair in the College of Education. During a lecture Monday night, he discussed his recent book, Letters to the Next President: What We Can Do
About the Real Crisis in Public Education. Glickman explored the dilemmas in the public education GLICKMAN system from the different perspectives of the contributors to his book. Glickman is the author of 12 books on subjects such as school leadership and the moral necessity of public education. He is also the Institute
for Schools, Education and Democracy president, which is an organization focused on strengthening education, civic engagement and democracy. He was formerly a professor of education at the University of Georgia. Glickman explained to a small crowd of civic leaders, educators and students that the success of the public education system is not just up to the legislators and politicians. In his book, he encourages people of all ages and walks of life to write letters to the future presi-
dent of the nation. The book includes letters from different key players who help shape the education system, including an 8-year-old student, an elder senator and concerned teachers and parents. In a question posed to his audience, Glickman asked what is missing in the education system today. He answered the question by blaming low funding of schools, a large percentage of g See AUTHOR, page 3

Texas State students take awards at national technology conference
A six-member team from Texas State attended the Ninth Annual National Collegiate Conference for student members of the Association of Information Technology Professionals held Thursday through Sunday. More than 400 students nationwide competed in various software development contests during the conference, held in Omaha, Neb., and about 50 to 70 teams competed in each contest. Philip Mears and Jeff DeMuynk earned second place in the Systems Analysis & Design competition among 60 competing teams. Donald Berg and Aaron Gadberry earned third place in the C++ competition among 65 competing teams, and Scott Crowder and Philip Mears earned fourth place in the Database Design competition among 70 competing teams. The attendance of the students was made possible by generous donations from the Horowitz family of California, computer information systems alumnus Ted Lasseter of Austin, TELENETWORKING PARTNERS, LTD of San Marcos, Associate Dean Robert J. Olney and financial support from the McCoy College of Business.
Three’s the magic number for increased tuition if students repeat courses
Beginning with summer registration, it will be more costly to re-take courses at Texas State. The Texas Legislature recently eliminated funding to higher education for courses which are repeated three or more times. To compensate for this loss of state funding, undergraduate students who take a course more than twice will be charged the non-resident rate of tuition for the repeated course. Classes in which the student withdraws and earns a “W” are counted under this new rule. If a student takes a course twice — even if he withdraws both times with a “W” — and enrolls for the same course a third time, he will be charged the higher tuition rate. Undergraduate resident tuition for Summer 2004 is $46 per hour, while non-resident tuition is $282 per hour. Under the new rules, one three-hour course will cost an additional $708 for in-state students taking the class a third time. For Fall 2004

courses, the difference will be $774. Students must carefully evaluate the added financial costs when considering withdrawing from or enrolling in a course multiple times. The change stems from Section 50 of Article III, House Bill 1 (the General Appropriations Act) passed during the 78th Regular Legislative Session. The bill directs the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to delete semester credit hours for formula funding for courses taken more than twice by a student since September 2002. Some courses are exempt because they are designed to be repeated, such as independent study, developmental education and special topics courses. Students should refer to the Texas State Web site at txstate.edu for additional information.
City to begin minor construction of Snyder Hill Drive
The city of San Marcos Street Department will begin minor reconstruction of Snyder Hill Drive today. The project will include the addition of ribbon curbs as well as asphalt overlay of the 1.3-mile street. The project is expected to take six to eight weeks to complete. Residents are being notified by the Street Department through the distribution of fliers. No street closures are expected in the project, although drivers may expect brief lane closures and flaggers directing traffic. Minor reconstruction involves grinding the old asphalt, recycling it with base materials, reshaping the streets and adding a new asphalt surface. Motorists are asked to drive carefully in the construction zone. The streets are part of the final year of a six-year, $4.5 million street reconstruction program undertaken by the city of San Marcos. Street Department crews are continuing to work on Chaparral Street and Camaro Way. Streets completed since October include Charles Austin, Schulle and Algarita drives; Hill and Fenway loops; and Clara, Prospect, Brown, Belvin, Quarry, Veramendi and Manor Park streets. The goal of the six-year maintenance-overlay program is to repave approximately 107 lane miles, or about 70 percent of the city’s streets. After this year, the program will continue on a modified basis.

most common type of cheating is collaboration without permission. ASG has already passed legislation approving the implementation and Blanda said similar legislation is expected to pass the Faculty Senate this week. The council is to be comprised of seven professors and seven students. The council will hear cases involving claims of dishonesty and then give a recommendation on whether they find evidence of cheating. The intent of the council is to change the way students think about cheating, Blanda said. “We’re trying to sustain a cultural change on campus,”

a letter to the 2,475 faculty and staff members with at least a 50 percent appointment to the university to advocate for their participation in this year’s drive. Gifts to the university can be directed to any area on campus the donor wants, but the letter urges participants to consider the Jerome H. and Catherine Supple Professorship of Southwestern Studies, the Memorial Scholarship Endowment and Campus Beautification. There are officially eight volunteers for the dunking booth who will sit for an estimated 20 minutes apiece. Quint Thurman, criminal justice chair, reluctantly accepted the invitation to participate. He said he does not know of anyone who would take revenge on him in the booth but he is fresh meat, this being his third year at the university. If someone wants to dunk him, “that is all right,” he said. “I’m hoping for warm weather and warm water,” Thurman said.
Beck and Frost are also participating, after nominating each other for the role, and will be known as “Team Hawaiian shirt.” “We’re getting wet for the campus fund drive,” Beck said. “People will have a great time.” Beck said there are also individual challenges going on within departments that have said they will match the donations their participants make. Of the 2,475 faculty and staff, one will become the lucky winner of free parking for fiscal year 2005. The drawing for this prize will take place at 1 p.m. Wednesday. To be eligible for the drawing, faculty and staff do not have to be a donor or even attend the event. Results will be announced via e-mail and the Texas State home page. Volunteers for the dunking booth are still being accepted. The top 10 reasons to participate in the event are listed on the University Advancement Web site.

test-based accountability in schools and low civic involvement. According to his statistics, Glickman found 64 percent of young people between the ages of 18 and 25 do not believe it is important to stay informed about significant issues. He also found holes in an education system that he calls “a test-prep culture versus a rich and balanced curriculum for students.” Jane Butters, Pearce Middle School assistant principal in Austin and Texas State graduate assistant, read excerpts from her letter “Why We Stay,” which is one of the letters appearing in Glickman’s publication. She said she believes teacher accountability is a high priority.
“Our yearly high rates of teachers leaving weakens an already fragile system that needs continuity and stability,” she said. She said the fact that teachers who excel in their field are often encouraged to move to a

All students are welcome to attend the workshop. “One thing you really want to stress is you can succeed and you will succeed, and there are reasons why you’re here and why you’re pushing,” said Brad Krugel, communication studies and political science senior and Phi Alpha Delta inductee. “That’s something you really want to illustrate.” A personal statement provides information in order to distinguish one student from the next and can be used for anything from a job application to a scholarship application. The workshop will take place at 7 p.m. and will be located in the LBJ Student Center

The fundraiser and the workshop will give students an opportunity to further other students’ education as well as their own. Krugel said to be successful it is necessary to be proactive. “Everyone does something. They just have to realize it and that is usually the most fulfilling,” Krugel said. “You’ll enjoy your life more, and you’ll enjoy your job more helping people to realize what you do day to day.”

While Glickman credits the federal and state government for enforcing requirements for schools, he said they do not provide adequate funds for schools in order to achieve expectations. Glickman has several solutions to solving the public education crisis; however, he emphasized “public education is the future of democracy.” He said he hopes to make a dent in the education system through increasing civic involvement in the community on behalf of schools. Glickman later said that academic excellence is not the single result of what teachers and educators do, because society plays a part as well.

Coalition expands AIDS drug plan
A year-old deal that offers AIDS drugs at a steep discount to 16 countries has been expanded to all the world’s poor nations, a key step toward making treatment available to millions of vulnerable patients. Broadening the program to more than 100 countries could dramatically increase the number of AIDS patients being treated, and offers hope that the World Health Organization might achieve its goal of getting 3 million poor patients on antiretroviral therapy by 2005, advocates said. The groups that negotiated the agreement — the World Bank, the Global Fund, UNICEF and the Clinton Foundation — combine for the first time some of the largest funding agencies with those that have the best public health expertise, including WHO. Missing, however, was one prominent funder: the U.S. government, which has its own plan to help AIDS patients in poor countries. The $15 billion U.S. plan seeks to buy medicines involving multiple combinations of pills from Western pharmaceutical companies that hold patents on the drugs, while Monday’s deal will rely on fixeddose medicines made in India and South Africa, which combine three drugs in one pill.
Fox reporter keeps his reports neutral
During the Democratic primaries, Fox News Channel correspondent Carl Cameron reported that John Kerry’s aides were accusing Howard Dean’s aides of spreading rumors that Kerry’s prostate cancer had returned — and Cameron wondered whether the Kerry camp had invented the story to make Dean look bad. “The Kerry people jumped all over me on that one,” he said. Despite that clash, the chief political reporter for what is seen as the most conservative cable network, has fared well in covering the unofficial Democratic nominee. Cameron has interviewed Kerry four times this year and held a dozen on-the-run chats — in part, he said, because the staff appreciates that when Kerry was struggling, “we weren’t characterizing him as a total loser.” Kerry spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter agrees. “He’s incredibly fair to both sides of the aisle,” she said. “Instead of that right-wing spin, he steps back, looks at the issues and does it in a fair way.”
Liberal talk radio bumps prominent New York station
Air America Radio, liberalism’s talk-radio answer to Rush Limbaugh, took flight this week in New York, but not without bumping the city’s preeminent black talk radio station off the dial. For about 22 years, WLIB on the AM dial offered a mix of leftleaning and black nationalist political talk radio and West Indian sounds, not least a calypso hour. Now that programming will be heard only at night, from midnight to 5 a.m. The liberal voices of Air America will fill the rest of the airtime. The Amsterdam News, a predominantly black newspaper, put the story on its front page, declaring: “WLIB: Black After Dark.” WLIB is an influential player in New York politics, playing host to prominent pols such as Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, former Mayor David Dinkins and erstwhile Democratic presidential candidate Al Sharpton.
Rice’s testimony offers opportunity, risk for White House
WASHINGTON — National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice’s testimony to the 9/11 Commission this week will be a moment of both opportunity and risk for a Bush Administration seeking to recapture the high political ground on the issue of terrorism. White House aides hope Rice’s high-profile appearance will reverse a slide in President Bush’s approval ratings on terrorism, an issue central to his case for re-election. Several recent polls have recorded this decline in the wake of former White House adviser Richard Clarke’s charges that Bush did not treat terrorism as an urgent problem before Sept. 11 and then weakened the antiterror campaign by invading Iraq. The administration has also been plagued by an embarrassing series of policy reversals on issues ranging from the initial creation of the 9/11 commission, its request for a two-month extension to deliver its final report and whether to allow Rice to testify publicly and under oath. In each case Bush opposed the move only to relent under intense political pressure.

THE UNIVERSITY STAR Defending the First Amendment since 1911

Censorship not the way to establish democracy F THE MAIN POINT
reedom of the press is a right enjoyed by Americans through the First Amendment and continues to be something we consider dear and defining as Americans. However, the United States feels that shutting down an Iraqi newspaper because of an untruthful story is OK. Al-Hawza, a weekly Baghdad newspaper run by anti-American Shiite Muslim Cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, was shut down by the Coalition Provisional Authority last week and an uprising has occurred as a result. How can our government claim it will give Iraqis sovereignty and freedom when it shuts down a newspaper that publishes a story that is untruthful? Al-Hawza published an article on Feb.
26 that blamed an explosion that killed 53 people in a Shiite town south of Baghdad on an American rocket instead of a suicide bomber, as the CPA had claimed. Now the paper will be shut down for at least 60 days according to Alaa-eldin Elsadr, a spokesman for the U.S.-led coalition. It is understood the United States has a responsibility while occupying Iraq to defend its troops against mobs that may develop from false stories published by a newspaper, but simply shutting down a dissenting voice merely sends the rebel voice underground and to word of mouth. Originally, the United States planned on simply occupying Iraq and cleaning out dissenting forces that allegedly harbored terrorism, and now they seem to
think censorship is part of that process. Obviously we should not support extremist forces in a country that is in a current state of turmoil, but there is a better way to go about it. If we plan on helping Iraqis to adopt a system other than dictatorship, angering their citizens by removing their voice is not the way to go. L. Paul Bremer, the top U.S. official in Iraq, issued a warrant for al-Sadr, whose supporters have been fighting against coalition forces since the shutdown. In militaristic times and situations, it is clear that actions must be taken to stave off further loss of life. At least U.S. forces are going after the root of the problem. However, instead of closing the doors of the newspaper, the CPA should have made its case for what happened to
cause the deaths of those innocent Iraqis killed in the blast in its own media outlets. When lies are circulated by a media outlet, the truth will always prevail — those who were previously antiAmerican were probably not swayed by one article attributing attacks to Americans. The bottom line is that U.S. forces should not practice censorship — it’s always easier that way — but instead, they should help Iraqis stay informed by encouraging them to build a reputable news source run by honest editors. Instead of silencing rebellious voices and leaving Iraqis angry through obvious censorship (and here’s a novel idea), why not practice American ideals by simply countering lies with the truth?

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Cline: tackling issues, pushing buttons
I’VE FINALLY FIGURED IT OUT
Republican principles finally come to light
Fellow students, I have just had an epiphany. I’ve decided my days of being a leftist are over. I am now a Republican. I now fully embrace the ideals of the Republican Party. I want to tell you all just a few of the reasons I have decided being a Republican is the only way to go. First of all, as a Rugh J. Cline Republican I hate the Star Columnist environment and long for the day we get rid of it once and for all. I get sick of all the trees getting pollen on my sports utility vehicle. Personally, I will be much happier once all the trees have been cut down. I often hear liberals crying about the hole in the ozone layer. Well, I just ask you this, liberals: What has the ozone layer ever done for you? Let’s see how fast we can destroy it; our children can deal with the consequences. As a Republican, I know that our government was formed to look out for the interests of big business and to keep American citizens in their place. Government has no right to regulate businesses. If Nike wants to open a sweatshop in Austin and employ thousands of elementary school-aged children, then it is its right to do so. The government has no place to step in. And as a Republican, I say we outlaw labor unions. People should simply not be allowed to organize, and if they do, they should be promptly branded as communists. Businesses should be allowed to maximize their profits in any way possible. If it is more cost effective for a business to dump industrial waste in the San Marcos River, then it should go right ahead. Screw what the hippie tree huggers have to say. Although as a reborn Republican I am against government regulation of business, I think individual citizens should have endless

restrictions put on their liberties. A woman’s body does not belong to her; it is simply on loan from God or the government. If she wants to make any choice with her body, she should first have to consult Attorney General John Ashcroft. Maybe we should make a constitutional amendment explicitly stating a woman has no right to make decisions with her own body. As a Republican I can’t stand all these damn blacks and Mexicans. Why won’t these people just stay in their place? Affirmative action is an evil program with evil intentions. If God wanted blacks and Mexicans to be as elevated as the white man, he wouldn’t have made them slaves to my ancestors. They either need to be emptying my garbage cans, mowing my yard, working as migrant farm laborers or perhaps working in a mine. If they aren’t doing these jobs they were meant to do, then they are probably up to no good, and just to be on the safe side the police should make sure to pull them over and search them as often as possible. Then we can ship them off to prison where they belong. As a Republican, I know health care is a luxury, not a right. If God wanted poor people to be able to see a doctor, he would have made them rich. If a child, whose dad is employed mowing my yard, falls off his bike and breaks his arms, then his dad had better start mowing more yards. If not, then the child should just go the rest of his life with gimp arms because it is certainly his fault his family is poor. Why should I care? My yard looks nice. As a Republican, I know that education should not be equal. Why are my property tax dollars from my $10 million estate going to subsidize the schools that my Mexican lawn mower’s children go to? I am rich, and so my children deserve a rich education. My Mexican lawn guy is poor, so it is obvious his children deserve a poor education. Why does his son need to be educated anyway, since his son’s place in the world is mowing my son’s yard

when he gets older? I get so sick of these liberals thinking the United States is supposed to be a land of equality. They are so misinformed. As a Republican, I know that George Bush can do no wrong. If Bush says we need to invade Sweden, I know he is fulfilling his duty of looking out for big business, and that is good enough for me. I won’t ask any questions of his bloodthirsty war drive like these pesky American-hating liberals. If he wants to go to war, I say: Let’s do it! Where do I sign up? I mean, where does my garbage man sign up? Because as a Republican I know that the rich start the wars, and the poor fight them. After all, that is the natural order of things. As a Republican, I have placed four American flags on my gas-guzzling SUV, which means I love the United States exactly four times as much as communist, tree-hugging liberals with their measly one American flag. So, I call on all the liberals out there to abandon your communist, tree-hugging ways. The time has come to put all of our faith behind Bush’s “strategery.” We are fighting a war. We are fighting against the environment. We are fighting against workers’ rights. We are fighting to keep women and minorities in their places. We are fighting anyone who challenges big oil, the Christian coalition or the National Rifle Association. Most of all, we are fighting American haters like the American Civil Liberties Union. Don’t these people read the papers? The Bill of Rights was already laid to rest with the PATRIOT ACT. Why don’t they lie down and accept that it is big business running the show, and they only have rights if and when we tell them they do. Cline is a political science senior.

Every day The Star comes out, I eagerly search for a copy and immediately turn to the Opinions page with the hopes that I will find an article written by Rugh Cline. Although I enjoy the rest of your newspaper, Cline’s articles are always my favorite. His dead-on sarcasm and completely alluring writing style represents a voice belonging to many students on this campus. Despite this, it seems that with every Cline article comes a round of attacks against him — mainly on his American, political remarks — from people who seem almost venomous to discredit him. Sure, his views are definitely just that — his views — but it pains me to see that no one ever agrees with him. Cline is one of the few Star columnists who discusses local issues, such as our own personal al-Qaida (er, I mean Chartwells Dining) overpriced dorms and crowding in The Quad, to name a few. He also restrains from being overly one-sided in his more broad political views. When discussing the pledge of allegiance or gay marriage, he refers to the Constitution, reveals the philosophical limitations of each issue and always uses an air of non-committal that shows he’s not trying to force anyone to think anything; he’s just stating what he sees. I think he is one of your best writers on staff, and even those students who don’t agree with his opinions probably agree with me, since they read his articles with as much enthusiasm as I do. Otherwise, why do they bother responding to him? Please tell him to keep up the good work. — Samantha Gentzel anthropology senior
Booths not to blame for Quad congestion
When I read Rugh Cline’s article “Hippies, God make students late for class ” in the April 1 issue of The University Star, I had to laugh. Is this dude serious? First of all, there are 26,000 students who go to school here. I think putting the blame for the traffic problem on the organizations set up in The Quad is pretty ridiculous. Let’s say the clubs and whomever else you bashed in your article didn’t set up in The Quad. Do you honestly think the traffic problem would just disappear? Please tell me we don’t have people who are that ignorant writing articles for our paper. Think about it ... Austin’s traffic is horrible. Add an extra lane to I-35 and magically the traffic is no more. Yeah right. It just gives an extra lane for the traffic to back up in, just like in The Quad. The traffic problem will be there with or without the clubs and vendors set up. It would just spread out, and you’d probably still be bitching. You asked in your article if it was “safe to assume these guys (CEO Grill) are always going to be located directly in the middle of the most high-traffic area on campus” and suggested the “hippie” should move his booth between the Alkek Library and LBJ Student Center. I just want you to think about that for a second. These guys are running a business, therefore, doesn’t it make sense that they set up in the highest traffic area? And as for all the fraternity bashing, I think you’re more pissed off because you’re not part of their little group than you are about the traffic. The stuff you said about paying for friends and comparing it to paying for sex has bitterness written all over it and has nothing to do with the traffic problems. All your bitching about the fraternities was only half legit to back up your traffic complaint. The rest was just you hating something because it’s different than how you live your life. Anyway, if you can’t get to classes on time, suck it up and go a different route; otherwise just deal with it, because it’s only going to get worse as more students come here every year. —Jennifer McMullen mass communication senior

Students to put the ‘past forward’ with upcoming fashion show BY TERRY MARTINEZ SENIOR REPORTER
the semester. The class is set up as a Special Problems course and is a one-hour credit course. Only students who are FMA members can take the Special Problems course and all students must be active members of FMA in order to participate in the fashion show. “The show planning starts a year in advance in order to set dates and secure the LBJ Student Center Ballroom,” Dorsey said. There are five committees, such as model selection, merchandise selection and hair and makeup. Students signed up for whichever committee they felt was right for them on the first day of class. “Last year was the first time in many years we put on the fashion show and it was well attended and well received,” Welkey said. “We raised $400 for the Fashion Merchandising Scholarship Fund and raised $200 for the Hays Caldwell County Women’s Shelter.”
Decade’s fashions can be blamed for current fads BY PORSHA THOMAS TRENDS REPORTER
Hey ladies, let’s rock ’n’ roll into the ’80s! We’ve finally made it to the era where from today’s fad fashion came. Getting sick and tired of all the pleated skirts, striped spandex shirts and high, pointy-toed pumps you’ve been seeing at the club lately? Blame it on the ’80s! The 1980s was a time of ... well, how could I put this ... craziness. No longer were the short hemlines of ’60s and ’70s enough to wow the public. Teens and young adults everywhere went absolutely insane with the fashion factor. Idols such as Boy George and Madonna drove the generation mad with off-the-wall fashions young people flocked to imitate. So where shall we begin? With hair of course! Now, if you were a female in the roaring ’80s and trying your hardest to look like Madonna or Janet, you probably had feathered, crimped or ultra-teased hair. Ever seen Weird Science? Remember the girls at the mall, side pony-tailing it? You may have done that also. (Oh, and don’t forget your Rave hairspray; it was a necessity.) Wearing multiple scrunchies was popular. The platinum blonde look we might view as a mishap today was happening in the ’80s. Banana clips, ribbon hair ties, glitter and big, teased-up bangs were all ’80s fashion. If you were a punk rockin’, Ramones-listening male, perhaps you sported the rainbowcolored Mohawk. Not into
punk rock? How about the Jheri Curl, slightly teased, the mullet, the bowl haircut or the Don Johnson look? Sound enticing? Or maybe you had one of these in junior high; you’ve got the soul of the ’80s in you, child! Let’s talk about sex, I mean ... makeup. (Get it, Salt N’ Pepa — the ’80s?) Women of the ’80s wore vivid makeup, had bushy eyebrows (Brooke Shields, Kelly Lebrock), wore lots of eyeliner, loved colored mascara and never went without their glitter. (Hey, I wear glitter to the club, don’t you?) Blue eye shadow, fashion lingering from the ’70s, was still popular in this decade. Men of course wore makeup as well, (Prince, Boy George) but we won’t get into that. You’ve seen the music videos. All right, lets get down and dirty with the clothing. Think off-the-shoulder shirts are new? Nope, ’80s. The sudden flourish of pink everywhere was done before as well in the ’80s. The sweater around the waist thing, that’s definitely ’80s; ooh, and remember acidwashed jeans, (ugh) certainly the ’80s. Shoulder pads were popular, along with thick belts, jackets with safety pins, neon, and those big, thick matching socks I can see my sister pairing with stirrup pants; most definitely the ’80s. Really quick, popular styles for the ladies’ legs were super-tight minis (something we’ve all seen going out this past weekend), colored hose

Models will be sashaying to the beat of the Fashion Merchandising Association’s fashion show, “Past Forward,” Thursday night. The fashion show will take place at 7 p.m. in the LBJ Student Center Ballroom. The entrance fee is $5 with a student ID and $7 without. FMA students have been working not only in fashion but also with the business aspect of putting on an event as extensive as this one. About 20 stores including Crickets, Emerald’s, Jean Therapy and Championship Vintage have agreed to showcase their merchandise at the FMA fashion show. About 50 models were also chosen to participate. A model selection committee set up booths in The Quad and in front of the LBJSC earlier this semester. “Applicants had to apply
and submit a photo,” said Jennifer Dorsey, FMA president. “All models are Texas State students. We welcomed models of all sizes, gender and race.” Sharon Welkey, FMA adviser and professor of the Special Problems class, said many of the retailers with clothes in last year’s show were eager to participate again. “Many of the stores with clothes featured in the show last year reported they sold out of the items within days of the show,” she said. The amount of problems the FMA encountered was minimal. One retailer dropped out of the show, which was quickly taken care of. Overall, Dorsey said the biggest problems they are encountering are interferences with other class work piled onto the “numerous hours of planning for the fashion show.” The Past Forward theme was decided on by Welkey’s Special Problems class early in

with rips, layered ruffle skirts, leggings, spandex and of course exercise gear. Let’s get physical! Men in the ’80s wore Members Only jackets, band T-shirts, neon, leather jackets with matching tight leather pants, spandex, muscle shirts, chains on their leather, rolled sleeves and the shirt around their waist. Men’s legs were covered
with parachute pants, jeans with big holes and tight acidwashed jeans. High tops were the shoe to have, the pump-up kind or the kind with the crazy laces. Ready for accessories? See if you don’t own some of this stuff right now. Women wore plastic charms, hoop earrings, plastic, rubber or slap bracelets, belts, big hair bows and jellies. Men wore rhinestone gloves, Crocodile Dundee hats, spiked wristbands, ban-
dannas, shades and suspenders. Whew! That was the ’80s in a hurry. Ten years of complete madness, but what an awesome time to be a designer; you could design a painted cardboard box and somebody would’ve worn it! Well, at least you know the 50 bucks you dropped for last weekend’s ’80s style outfit could’ve been saved had you gone to a thrift store! Better luck next time!

Bobcats sweep series on the road The University Star — Page 8
By Jim Bob Breazeale Sports Reporter
Trahan got the win in the circle, allowing one run on five hits and striking out five. The win was Trahan’s fifth in a row. Texas State took Game 3, 10-1, in five innings, sparked by four runs in the second frame to put the ’Cats up 4-0. Snow connected on her eighth home run of the season in the third, a two-run bomb, and Texas State added three more in the fourth. Trahan came through with a single for her team-leading 32nd RBI of the season in the fifth inning to end the game early by virtue of the eight-run mercy rule. The Bobcat offense was on fire this weekend, pounding out 31 hits and scoring 20 runs in the three games. Snow and Trahan led the attack for Texas State. Snow was 7-11 at the plate with two homeruns and five RBIs, and Trahan was 7-12 with five RBIs. Zaleski also produced, going 6-10 with two RBIs and four runs scored, stealing a base in each game, extending her SLC-leading total to 27. The Bobcats return to the friendly confines this weekend for the final home stand of the regular season, a three-game series against Sam Houston State University beginning with a Friday doubleheader, which begins at 5 p.m. The finale will be played at 1 p.m. Saturday. Texas State will not be home again following that series until the Southland Conference Tournament, which will be held at Bobcat Field from April 30-May 2, and will have eight straight games on the road to finish the regular season.
ONROE, La. — The Texas State Bobcats continued to steamroll through the Southland Conference this weekend, sweeping a three-game series on the road from the University of Louisiana-Monroe and have now won 15 of its last 16 games. With the sweep, the ’Cats improve to 34-9 overall and 17-1 in conference play, four games ahead of secondplace University of Texas-San Antonio, which is 13-5 in SLC games. The ’Cats opened the series Saturday in a doubleheader, winning Game 1, 6-0, and Game 2, 4-1. Senior Nicole Neuerburg made easy work of ULM in Game 1, striking out 10 batters and giving up two hits in six innings of work, improving to 22-4 on the year. Freshman Sarah Lancour pitched one shutout inning of relief to close the win. The ’Cats put the game out of reach with a two-run blast by sophomore Hannah Snow in the fifth inning that put Texas State in front 6-0. Game 2 saw ULM strike first when center fielder Kristen Baker scored on a double-steal attempt for a 1-0 lead. The Indians held the Bobcats scoreless until the fourth, when Snow led off with a triple to left, followed by a two-run shot off the bat of second baseman Ashley Wilson. Pitcher Katie Ann Trahan knocked in center fielder Kristen Zaleski in both the fifth and seventh innings to round out the Bobcat scoring for the afternoon.

Ashley A. Horton/Star photo Kristen Zaleski, senior center fielder, bunts the ball and makes it to first safely against University of Houston March 9. The Bobcats were defeated by the Cougars, 2-5. The Bobcats took on the University of Louisiana-Monroe this weekend and defeated the Indians in a threegame series.
With the series on the line for the third game, Harrington sent freshman Patrick Colgan to the mound for the start. Texas State jumped on the ULM bullpen first when designated hitter Patrick Crumpton sent a pitch over the left-field wall for a solo home run. In the next frame, ULM responded with a run of its own. Then in the bottom of the sixth, Texas State took a three-run lead. The score held form until the top of the ninth, where the wheels fell off the Bobcat wagon and the magical season that Ramos was having on the mound. Indian shortstop Bradley Hoffpauir smashed the first pitch he saw down the right-field line toward Richard Martinez. The senior right fielder attempted to play the ball off the first bounce but got ahead of himself and allowed the ball to roll under his glove, permitting Hoffpauir to reach second safely with a three-run double to tie things up. Hoffpauir then scored when the next batter, Glenn Jackson, singled, giving the Indians the goahead run. With momentum on their side, the Indians were able to get Texas State to go three-up, three-down to end the game, 7-6. The Bobcats will finish their only true homestand of the season as they host the University of Texas-Pan American today and Wednesday at Bobcat Field, before traveling to Huntsville for a three-game set against Sam Houston State University this weekend. Today’s game with UTPA is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. while frst pitch Wednesday will be at 3 p.m.

But after a four-run inning to retake the lead that was capped off with back-to-back RBI singles by catcher Dawid Bednarek and Ramos, first baseman Mark Cooper drove the final nail into the coffin himself with a pair of RBI singles in the sixth and eighth innings.

SLC SOFTBALL Standings
Baseball falls short of winning series against ULM The Texas State baseball team was just one out away from winning a three-game series against Southland Conference rival the University of Louisiana-Monroe. The Bobcats (16-15 overall, 5-4 SLC) won the middle game of the series, but the Indians (15-16, 3-6) took the bookend games with a stellar performance in the first game by Indians’ starter Ryan Schwabe. A ninth-inning meltdown by the Bobcats on Sunday cost Texas State the third and deciding game. Friday evening’s game was postponed because of wet weather and was rescheduled for Saturday as part of a doubleheader. Left-handed senior Schwabe, who crafted a complete-game shutout of the Bobcats, dominated the first game. Schwabe’s 10 strikeouts went along nicely with having only faced 35 batters. Senior Tom Robbins was the starter for the Bobcats but was pulled at the start of the sixth as the Indians’ offense was able to score with a run in the second, fourth and sixth innings before exploding for three runs in the seventh to give the score its final look at 6-0. The second game saw Texas State get the win with offensive eruptions in the first and fifth innings, as the Bobcats scored four runs in both frames to take the win, 11-6. The Texas State starter for the second game was lefty Joey Gonzalez who was only able to record the first seven outs of the game. Coach Ty Harrington pulled Gonzalez in the middle of
