Now the board of trustees is being asked to close the department. "As of last week, we had not yet admitted a single geology major for the upcoming school year," said Cheryl Mann, assistant to university president Dr. William J. Teague. She said the department wili lose about six of its 29 students to graduation this year and that the trustees will be asked at their May 10 meeting to close it, effective next fall. However, Miss Mann denied reports that officials were recommending closure of the school's honors program for advanced students and a learning assistance center for students who need special tutoring. The Abilene Reporter-News, citing an unidentified source, said Wednesday the moves were part of an austerity measure brought on by an operating deficit of about $1 million this school year. "That is simply false," Miss Mann said. "Our honors program and our learning assistance center are really key to our academic program as a whole." They have been very successful." She said the faculty was told several weeks ago that the university anticipated a $900,000 shortfall in tuition because enrollment was lower than projected, but that "appropriate adjustments were made to prevent a deficit. We are not now anticipating an operating'deficit." Miss Mann said Abilene Christian, an affiliate of the Churches of Christ, is one of the four largest private universities in the Southwest.

LONDON (AP) - The Duchess of Windsor, the American divorcee for whom King Edward Vlll gave up the British throne, died Thursday ul her home near Paris, Buckingham Palace announced. She was 89 years old, and had been in frail health and confined to her home for eight years. Sources in Paris said she died of bronchial pneumonia. The sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said a doctor who visited the duchess Wednesday night had been optimistic, but her condition deteriorated and she developed a high fever just before her death. Buckingham Palace said she will be buried at Windsor Castle's Frogmore Garden Cemetery alongside her husband. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert also are buried in thai cemetery. The announcement did not say when the funeral would be. For a few short months in 193G, Edward had hoped to make the twice-divorced Wallis Warfiekl Spencer Simpson the Queen of England. But their romance proved to be an embarrassment to traditionalists and the Church of England hierarchy, and he was forced to give up his throne. "I have found it impossible." Edward had said in a moving radio broadcast to his subjects throughout the world on Dec. 11, 1936, "to carry the heavy burden of responsibility and to discharge my duties as king as 1 would wish to do without the help and support of the woman I love." After Edward abdicated, the couple went to live in exile in France. Edward, who became the Duke of Windsor when he abdicated, died of throat cancer at age 77 in 1972. His body was returned to Britain for burial. The Windsors had been ostracized for decades by Buckingham Palace, but iO days before Edward died, Queen Elizabeth II visited their home in the Bois de Boulogne. The duchess stayed at the palace for the funeral but returned to Paris immediately and was not invited to the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer in 1981.
