Hotline 823-CARE The Battalion Number One in Aggieland By Amy Young Reporter Under Texas A&M’s High School Enrichment Program, qualified Bryan-College Station high school students can attend classes at A&M while they still are enrolled in high school. The 12-year-old program, which is linked to A&M’s Honors Program, is coordinated by Scott Shafer, an academic counselor at A&M. The high school students may re ceive high school credit only, or may obtain joint high school-university credit by actual admission to the University. Shafer said the qualifications for admittance into the program include a junior or senior classification, high scores on standardized tests such as the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or the American College Test (ACT) and good student performance in regular high school classes. The students must have at least a 90 percent high school average and a score of 1,100 on the SAT or the PSAT (Preliminary SAT) to be eligi ble for the program. Even if students don’t quite meet the qualifications, they still may be eligible for the program, Shafer said. “We rely heavily on the advice of the high school counselors, since they are in close contact with the stu dents,” Shafer said. “If there is a stu dent who the counselor feels is out standing, that person is usually given an opportunity to take a course, even if their SAT isn’t quite at the 1,100 mark.” Shafer said this semester there are about 30 students involved in the rram. xe program was set up so high school students can get a glimpse of what college is like while taking com parable courses in place of those they normally would be taking at their schools, Shafer said. Felix Meyer, a senior at A&M Consolidated High School, has been involved with the program for al most two years, including this past summer. “To me, it doesn’t matter what grade I get, as long as I get a lot out of the class,” he said. The students pay no tuition be cause they are still in high school. However, they do purchase their own books, attend all classes, turn in assignments and take all exams just as full-time A&M students do, Shafer said. “There is no cost involved in it at all,” he said. “The high school awards the credit, so the state tax money is still paying for their educa tion, in a sense. It’s just like taking a course in high school, only they take it here.” After the student has applied to the The following were reported to the University Police Depart ment from Nov. 6 through Mon day: MISDEMEANOR THEFT: • Someone took a 1989 Aggie class ring with a 30-point di amond from a display case in the Clayton Williams Jr. Alumni Cen ter. • A student reported that her billfold was taken from the basket of her moped while it was parked behind Dorm 7. • A student told police that someone took a 48-quart Igloo cooler containing beer from his vehicle while it was parked.

If they can get these high- achieving students interested in their program, and A&M in general, there’s a good chance that they’ll stick with us and get their degrees here.” About 50 percent of the students who become involved with the pr gram attend A&M after their hi( school graduation, he said. ligh AUSTIN (AP) — The Texas prison system has become safer for inmates since the state began isolat ing the most dangerous prisoners, a report by a national prisons expert says. The survey by James Austin of the National Council on Crime and De linquency says reported levels of in mate violence within the general population of the Texas Department of Corrections are low. “Homicide, suicide and escape rates within TDC are similar or lower than comparable state prison systems,” the report says. The department recently insti tuted an inmate classification housing system, which grew out of a federal lawsuit over the safety and proper housing of the state’s 39,000 prisoners. Austin said under the classifica tion system, the state works to put prisoners in the least restrictive liv ing quarters, using their behavior as the primary determining factor. Almost 40 percent of the prison population is housed in low-security dormitories. .thinl isolates i peoy The system, which most dangerous prisoners, alwa ended the prison gang warfaretk resulted in the death of 52 innui! in 1984 and 1985, he said.

B< Give n Audience enjoys musical performance complete with rain on stage at A8cM By Karen Kroesche At Ease Editor It rained in the Rudder Audito rium during the Tuesday night per formance sponsored by the MSC Opera and Performing Arts Society, but nothing could dampen the mood of audience members as they watched a fun-loving performance of a popular Broadway musical. Besides, the rain was intentional — as was the fun — since the show being p r e Cosmo was the most acter and he charmed the audieni with his exaggerated antics duri his solo performance of “Make 1 Laugh.” Bushin’s charisma wase. dent and even overshadowed tl i performances of the “stars” (Craifj ford and McCarthy) at times. sented was the Music Theatre Group’s pro duction of Viewpoint Singin’ in the Rain.” In addition to solid acting talent, the almost sold-out performance featured some creative scenery and staging, including a real rain shower complete with puddles for the actors to dance in. The story, based on the MGM film of the same name, centered around the lives of Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont (played by Jay Cranford and Liz McCarthy, respec tively), two silent-film stars who are trying to make the transition to “tal kies,” or movies with sound. The audience also was treated to fun song-and-dance number calitf “Moses Supposes” that featured tap-dancing talents of both Cra| ford and Bushin. Later, Cranford was joined stage by an entourage of brighi I costumed dancers for what Cosfl | termed a “flash-forward." Till number, called “Broadway Melodj was the only modern segment play, and was the most exciting, wil the exception of the finale perfot; mance by the full cast of the son “Singin’ in the Rain.” But while the storyline was seti | the early 1900s, the scenery an | staging techniques used in “Singil j in the Rain” were definitely of i present age. The theater gro brought its own specially design stage complete with water-tight li[ and electricity hookups to facility : the rain scene. Photo by Sam B. Myers Jay Cranford performs on a wet stage in “Singin* in the Rain.” The musical production featured clips shown on a movie screen back drop from the black-and-white mov ies that star Lockwood and Lamont. The effect worked brilliantly and en hanced the believability of the story line, which was complicated by Lock- wood’s off-screen affair with Kathy Selden, played by Elizabeth Ward. There really was no one single star of “Singin’ in the Rain,” but Jimmy Bushin stole the show as Cosmo Brown, Lockwood’s friend and constant companion. But the most advanced prod® tion techniques can not stand alonT on a stage; in Tuesday night’s shoj they merely complemented the ac| ing and dancing abilities of the pel] formers. The excellent choreog phy also served to enhance performance. Tuesday’s performance o| “Singin’ in the Rain” was a ligl hearted production where special' fects and acting talent reigned sni preme.
