Dr. David Rosen, a McMillan pro

the problem and will talk about how
to understand depression and what
to do about it. A video about depres
sion also will be shown.
Jenkins said having depression is
different from “having the blues.”
“Depression is diagnosed if cer
tain symptoms persist more than
two weeks,” she said.
Jenkins said getting the blues is a
normal reaction to events that up
set people such as making a bad
grade on a test.
She said symptoms of depression

Jenkins said a person who is diag

said the illness can be treated by
medication and counseling.

percent of those who have depres
sion can be treated successfully.

Haus was brought to Texas A&M
by Dr. Michael Waters, a Texas A&M
professor of archeology, anthropolo
gy and oceanography.
The camp at Hearne was disman
tled at the end of the war, and Waters
began excavating the camp a year
ago with the help of A&M students.
Hundreds of artifacts, such as Ger
man buttons, canteens and coins,
have been recovered from the site.
Haus said he appreciates the diffi
cult times in his life because it has
completed him as a person.
“At the end of my life, I can say I’ve
seen everything,” he said. “I’ve done
everything, I have everything.”
Truan to run for another term
. CORPUS CHRISTI (AP) — Carlos Truan, dean of the
Texas Senate, ended rumors that his tenure was near
an end Wednesday night by announcing that he’ll run
for re-election again next year.
The Corpus Christi Democrat, in a tearful speech
to about 2,000 supporters, said “there is more that we
can accomplish together.”
“This is all very emotional for me,” Truan said.
The announcement was particularly significant be
cause the 28-year legislative veteran had declined to
discuss his political plans in recent months. Even De
mocratic Party officials didn’t know what he would do.
Truan, 62, has served 20 years in the Texas Senate,
longer than any other lawmaker. He earlier served
eight years in the state House. His tenure earned him
the title of dean of the Senate in 1995.
