Dear North Texan,
In response to your article (March issue of The North
Texan) asking about professors who go the "extra mile"
I would like to tell you about Dr. Roy Busby, professor
in the journalism department.
I was working toward my master's degree in journal-
ism and I needed one course to finish my requirements so
i rqR7&iqd uate in August 1983. It was important
tnlt, nji~ t my degree that summer as I taught school
( ~ itn and 4reded to have my degree finished by
tljrm t4esch.b year began.
t i' " I wanted to take an advanced pub-
lic r f 'r$tbut it would not be offered until the
fan g 1.*i went to the instructor, Dr. Busby. He
-s /l Ii do an internship with him at The Aero-
er in Dallas. During the summer of 1983 I
worked in the public relations department at Dr. Kenneth
Cooper's Aerobics Center in Dallas. During my intern-
ship I was able to meet and interview such people as
former Dallas Cowboys Cliff Harris, Roger Staubach
and Tom Landry, and former Olympic figure skating
gold medalist Peggy Fleming.
After the internship was completed, I was thankful
that I had the opportunity to have this experience be-
cause not everyone gets to meet such notable people and
the experience was much more valuable than a class.
Dr. Busby continues to be a friend and I never hesitate
to call him if I have a problem or need some advice.
Sara Alleman ('83)

Of 61 proposals submitted by college students to
judges from General Motors, Hughes Aircraft, Chevro-
let, AeroVironment, the U.S. Department of Energy and

Happy Birthday, Bach
The School of Music celebrated J.S. Bach's 304th
birthday with a lecture, two concerts and a reception in
The first Bach Birthday Bash began with a lecture by
NT musicologist Dr. Deanna Bush. Dr. Lenora Mc-
Croskey and several students presented a program of
Bach's compositions for organ, and a concert was per-
"The miraculous thing about Bach's music is that it
has been performed on almost every conceivable in-
strument, and it always seems to work," said Carter
Enyeart, who organized the day's events.
Enyeart said he hopes Bach's birthday will become an
annual campuswide celebration. "I'm a big fan of Bach
and I thought a music school this size should do some-
thing to remember his birthday," he said.
