The ECU Man and Woman
Lured by the Night
Alone or Together
Emotional or Inhibited
Systematic or Impulsive
Involved or Unconcerned
Forever on the Move
At the Dawn of a New Decade
Shape of the future
By the desire
In one's heart
And the unwished gift
Of the world's old problems
To find a place
Where with a little rustling
And turning about
He can make room
And looking around him
See what he can do
To help the fellow

Donald Duck, and Goofy. Plenty of sunshine, color, and happiness. Empty bottles of "Rebel Yell" and "Seagram's 7." hHome- coming, requiring hundreds of hours of dedi- cated preparation, provided ECU with a spectacle of color and enthusiasm unparal- leled by any previous campus event. Con- certs by Dionne Warwick and The Fifth Dimension overwhelmed more than 8,000 students and guests who literally packed in- to Minges Coliseum. Even when the David- son Wildcats came from behind to defeat the Pirates, enthusiasm remained high. Pin- nochio, Dumbo, Jiminy Cricket, and a host of other Disney characters transformed "Greater Groovy Greenville" into a fan- tasyland of animation. An endless array of sorority and fraternity house decorations stimulated the Imagination of everyone from six to sixty, hlomecoming 1970 proved the world a "carousel of color."

Tribute to the Pirates of ECU.
Everyone wants a touchdown and most of all - victory!

One step away from a touchdown and a victory for ECU.

Diane Elizabeth Spry
Buccaneer Queen 1970
charming, and dynamic - these ad- jectives genuinely describe the Buc- caneer queen for 1970. A striking beauty from Arlington, Virginia, Diane Spry was selected from a field of thirty-two campus lovelies who were judged on personality, poise, and photogenic quality. Rep- resenting Alpha Phi sorority, the vi- vacious queen's post-graduation plans include membership either in VISTA or the Peace Corps. Diane, a sophomore history major, ex- plained, "I do not want to sit and watch the world go by; I want to help it along by helping people."

Wild, wet, wonderful. Rankinism. "Give me a P. All the way, all the way go, go!" hlomecoming - '69 style. Victory, defeat, joy, sadness. Purple and gold, inter-group compe- tition spirit stick, rally squad. Pep rallies. "Ev-er-ything we do is going to be funky. Ah, but can you rally?" Inspiration, broken ribs, soul. "Rip 'em up, give 'em hell. Pirates!" David- son, Jacksonville, South Carolina, State, Duke, Wake Forest . . . "hley, hey, hey, hey! EC you look so good to me!!"
Between rally cries, the cheerlead- ers engaged in other activities. At- tending a workshop at Pfieffer Col- lege, they learned new routines and won an award for being one of the most spirited cheerleading squads. In November, the squad sold cowbells for the hlomecoming game.
of red and blue and Bobby Vinton. Echoes of "Blue Velvet," "Roses are Red," "Blue on Blue," and "Red Roses for a Blue Lady." Audible ooh's and ah's as the Sinatra of the 60's crooned to an enraptured audi- ence. It was an audience of lovers, hands entwined and hearts enlightened. Melodies of love and soft sighs of young girls were heard throughout the audience.
on centerstage, a voice fronn the shadows. Thursday, April 24, '69 brought Johnny Ma+his to Minges Coliseunn. Strains of "I'll Never Fall in Love Again" and "The Twelfth of Never" reverberated into every corner of Minges. Enthralled students were capti- vated by Mathls' talent. Though snnall in stature, Johnny Mathis proved himself a giant annong entertainers.

music and a concert on "grass." Pirate Jamboree brougint Boyce and Hart and the Association to the East Carolina campus.
With six gold records to their credit, the Association opened Jamboree with the drumbeat of excitement. Long famed by "Along Comes Mary," "Cherish," and "Windy," they provided a musical review of their outstanding hits.
Stereotyped as the Kings of Bubblegum Music, Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart played many of the songs they have writ- ten, and Boyce and Hart provided a unique experience for the large crowd at the con- cert on the Mall. "LUV" proved to be a crowd favorite. They wrote the song, mean- ing Let Us Vote, as a musical request for lowering the voting age to 18. "Let's Take a Trip to Greenville," written the night be- fore the concert, brought cheers, claps, and smiles from the audience.
The Association - May 2, 1969.
Boyce and Hart - May 3, 1969.
Times Square Two - January 3, 1969
zany! An "extra added attraction" to a concert. Times Square Two, "an absolute scream!" Mycroft Parner and Andrew I's fast-moving act in- cluded duo-guitars, historical event re-enactments, and juggling of prick- ly pears. A sound similar to an ele- phant's roar filled Minges when An- drew played his tromoblatt, a large ancient brass instrument that looked like an unwound trombone or trum- pet with a curved horn on the end. With co-ordinated and perfectly timed antics, Times Square Two pro- vided an hour of rollicking, side- splitting entertainment.
Ballads, beat, rhythm, pop, fan- tastic dancing ability, and light hu- mor followed with Anthony and the Imperials. Flashing purple shirts and white pants adorned the group who commanded the crowd's full atten- tion. Big hits of yesterday. Total silence. A medley of oldies but goodies such as "Going Out of My htead," "Tears on My Pillow," "I'm on the Outside Looking In," and "Take Me Back." A standing ovation and memories of "beach music."
Anthony and the Imperials - January 31.
Your Father's Moustache - September 27, 1969.
B. J. Thomas- September 9. 1969.
More music. A warm reception for B. J. Thomas. The opening concert of Fall 1969. "Little Green Apples" and "Raindrops Fallin' on My hHead" echoed throughout Minges. A ruffled white shirt, a sore throat, but still a performance.
and hundreds of sweating bodies on the Mall. A tuba, trombone, piano, banjo, and washboard. Parents' Day and a return to the Gay Nineties. Derby hats and striped vests. "Footstomping, beer-drinking" music per- formed by "Your Father's Moustache."
crowds. Traffic jams. Students packed to the rafters of Minges. En- tertainment for Homecoming 1970 left nothing to be desired except more room.
darkness. Spotlight. Dionne War- wick. Belting out her hits of now and then, Dionne performed before a captivated audience, hier back-up group, the Constellations, added to the excitement. Unbelievable silence permeated Minges as she sang old favorites such as, "Walk On By," "Don't Make Me Over," "Promises, Promises," and "Alfie."
and more spots. Black and white dots. Fringed suede vests for the second half. A spontaneous group and a responsive audience. Kicking off with "Up, Up, and Away," the Fifth Dimension dazzled listeners. Dancing in the aisles and on the stage. "Wedding Bell Blues," "Aguarius" and a strobe light. De- spite the absence of Marilyn Mc- Cou, they were "sensational."
Fifth Dimension- November 9, 1969.
Mistaken identity leads to near disaster in rock musical.
The Brooklyn Bridge - January 25, 1970.
Groovin' to the beat of "People Got To Be Free," the versatile eleven members of the "Bridge" stimulate high spirits in members of the capacity crowd.
Your Own Thing, Jose Feliciano, and the Brooklyn Bridge. A rock musical, a blind entertainer, and eleven versa- tile musicians. The rising tempera- tures and warm sunshine put every- one in a good mood for the week- end.
for a phone call that was the spark setting off the rock musical, Your Own Thing. A one-night stand in Wright Auditorium provided a night of light-fingered, light-hearted hu- mor. A story about identical twins separated by a shipwreck and later re-united by chance. The rock musi- cal, whose plot was stolen from Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, was a first for the East Carolina audience.
on a guitar. Fast-paced to slow-mov- ing. "Put On Your Red Dress, Mama" to "Love Theme from Romeo and Juliet." Led to centerstage by his seeing eye dog, Jose Feliciano left students awestruck by his musi- cal genius and his impersonations of show business personalities. This tal- ented musician proved to the audi- ence that being blind was not a handicap for him.
was the magical number for the Brooklyn Bridge. Ten guys and one girl. Performed such hits as "Worst That Could hfappen," "Welcome Me Love," and "You'll Never Walk Alone." They sang "Upside Down" and invited people to dance and they did - in the aisles, on the stage, even on the chairs. "People Got to Be Free" was the message they left with ECU students.
and a great honor. Lots of hard work to gain the prestige of being chosen to "Who's Who Annong Stu- dents in Annerican Universities and Colleges." Chosen by a committee composed of students and faculty, these ECU men and women received national recognition.

moments of anticipation; for some, moments of sorrow; no more final exams; no more eight o'clock classes. The parting of old friends, a retro- spect of four long years. A step towards the "big, cruel world" and a step away from the security of the college campus. A piece of parchment, letters to follow a name . . . Was it worth it? No more "hap- py hours," no more "all-nighters," and no more of that "good" cafe- teria food. The brotherhood of fra- ternities, the sisterhood of sororities, the long waits in the infirmary or in the drop-add line. The hassle of mak- it to class on time, the frustration faced as a freshman - these were gone. Gone, but not forgotten. Ahead lay a career, marriage, or the service. A never-ending struggle to attain a goal. The choice of a way of life faced the graduate as he walked away.
Graduates face the future with mixed emotions and with hopes for success.

An unplanned keg party and a load of newly-made friends. Delegates from Campbell College, UNC, UVA, Duke, and ECU made the fourth annual Model Security Council a booming success.

cream fights and cramped accom- modations left a lasting impression on National Merit Scholars who vis- ited ECU during Scholarship Week- end. Sponsored by the East Caro- lina League of University Scholars, high school students from the South- ern United States personally experi- enced various aspects of college life. Like staying in the dormitories and attending classes.

The other $200,000 was to be raised by the University. The beginning of a new phase of ad- vancement for East Carolina Uni- versity.
Lines forming One way streets
East Carolina has a wholesome Sorority Fraternity parties are where my daughter lives can you tell me where the men's room is

Wonder how ail the freshman girls seem to have dates
all through the night
the lights burn in the dorms
noise rings in the halls
and the stairs smell of vomit
and freshman boys
The lines of orientation And fall is full of people And more lines
run into fall and more lines which help you get acquainted
With ones you had your eye on
By television By lecture By labs
you learn fronn books that cost and you get bored right away welcome to the club
You made it to the big time
you are a Student in the University
what y'say yer name was again
In the fall you should be a sophomore
when Greenville Has shrunk lo its proper perspective leaves begin to change And you find long walks through the woods strangely satisfying You reach for others
you touch And the season is a mantle to wrap around your love
but grades suffer And the work load pushes harder Still it's a time to explore
and experiment And you know you are not alone
The winter quarter begins when Greenville
puts up its Christnnas lights And winter is bleak and dreary with
light snowfalls to break the monotony Winter is a passage from fall to spring Being a junior is having one more year
after this A transition period from sophomore to senior A bleak and dreary passage of time
Juniors are desperate
they drop out
they go into a slump
There is no frenzy to compare with that of a junior girl who is unpinned or has no fiance who is unloved
and there are rumors that many attempt suicide
But no official word on attempts or completions
just a flurry of lights late at night in the infirmary And a rumor
has a sound and a magic all its own The trees flush green
students hit the grass again
barefoot becomes the word After knowing each other for a winter lovers unknowingly and caring less give lessons on the mall to gawking passersby
young married students or not Bring their babies to play on the mall It's there
right around the corner And seniors have a look and a magic all their own
a confidence a retribution a day of glory and agony
Spring is the time not to be blown
Spring is the final lunge towards graduation
Spring is the time to decide
what and where The answers are not easy
but the day comes And the discomfort of archaic pageantry and ceremony the pronouncement of the pundits the blessings of the Gods You curse the means and cry at the end And the crying is not all in relief.
Some came in ignorance Some with genius
A few were foreign
Some were older Some were younger
more than before were Black
They studied, worked, loved, protested
for and against They painted, printed, typed, made it
to create something
Some left drunks Some left freaks Some left knowing the extent of their
ignorance A few left with determination A few left in defeat
None left unchanged.
In the midst of the heights
at the peak of man's leap We cannot call back a minute
there is no key Yet to unlock the door we have closed When Mankind's dreams seem most limitless
one man's dreams May be shattered in a moment
and we cry
and we cry And we cry for the millions who thrill
at the step of one man on the moon
who listen to the practiced promises of practiced politicians
for all of that Man's destiny is to die
and the young laughing lovers Who are learning to live life together
will be torn apart And one will cry upon the cold breast of the other
And the trees of Youth are uprooted And the soil of Age is despoiled
and though Man reach the Stars He still will not be able to call back the past He still will not be able to restore the lost
and each of us must die And I cry
for where ann I
where ann I

Choreography on a hun- dred-yard gridiron ended in a curved straight line. A spirited trip to Rich- mond was followed by a disappoint-

At ECU's game with Fur- man, the Marching Pirates stood under the shelter of Ficklen Stadium's student section and competed with the sound of raindrops plunking ir parking-lot puddles. hHomecomInq and Christmas parades and "that song" rounded out memories of the '69 season.

rehearsals, hours of practice, and tired eyes. Intent dedication by all concerned resulted in a successful year for the Symphony Orchestra and its conductor, Robert L. hiause. Missed cues and whispering cut-offs which frequented rehearsa,. were somehow corrected before perfor- mance. Determined efforts were re- warded with feelings of accomplish- ment. Each quarter brought concert worries as traditional compositions by Ravel, Franck, Debussy, and oth- ers were performed. Paul Kosower, Louise Spain, and Joe McCracken appeared as featured soloists in fall, winter, and spring concerts. In conjunction with the combined cho- ruses, the orchestra presented Mo- zart's "Requiem Mass" in December. Each performance was also recorded in stereo and presented by WITN- FM and other FM stations in Eastern North Carolina.

once again, the Symphonic Band was invited by the National Con- ference of College Band Directors to perform at the University of Tennessee. Trips here and to the state v^here peaches grow were re- wards for hard work. Four o'clock rehearsals every other day. Playing before thousands of high school students in the Atlanta area. hHead- ache practice sessions for winter and spring concerts. Original com- positions under renowned composer- conductors like East Carolina's Gregory Kosteck ba'anced the scope of the band. Sixty members spent an extra day on campus for the final performance of the year, commencement.

season over, members of fall's Marching Pirates formed winter's Varsity Band. Chapped lips and numbed fingers handicapped cold- weather rehearsals. Ninety-five members were guided through one practice session after another by their director's comical, yet serious facial expressions. These expressions were trademarks of East Carolina's George Knight. Mr. Knight ex- plained, "If it were not for this or- ganization, many students would cease their involvement with music after marching season." Most of the music performed was in a traditional vein, but long hours were also spent in rehearsing modern compositions. For what? Two concerts in the spring, one formal and one done on grass. No, not that kind of grass!

Christmas spirits broaden the smiles of the men and women of the University Chorale.
for the University Chorale was "Watch, watch, watch!" Members watched and sang. They expressed their interest and enthusiasm in mu- sic. Men and women of the Chorale lent their voices to many musical programs throughout the year. Un- der the direction of Dr. Paul A. Ali- apoulios, the group combined with other choruses and the orchestra to present in December Mozart's "Requiem Mass." The month of mis- tletoe heard the Chorale contribute to the Christmas Assembly. In con- junction with the Varsity Band, an April concert, requiring still more time and practice, was given. In- cluded in the year's activities were assembly programs and concerts in high schools and in communities sur- rounding the Greenville area. It was a busy year. hHard, but fun.

Somewhere between the fun rehear- sals the men sang a little. They en- joyed a little "fun in the sun" while accompanying the Women's Glee Club for joint concerts at the beach. They joined in concert with the St.
Mary's choir of Raleigh. Staging an overnight concert tour, the men trav- eled throughout the state and per- formed at high schools. On campus, the Men's Glee Club sang in Mozart's "Requiem Mass" and the Christmas Assembly. Members also enjoyed hearing director Brett Wat- son's temper tantrums disrupt re- hearsals for the joint concert with the women in spring.

of the Women's Glee Club spent long hours in designing dresses to be worn while singing. Then came sore hands from the cutting and poked thumbs from the sewing. Finally the dresses were finished and worn at the Christmas Assembly. Whew! One of the highlights of the year came in traveling to the beach to join the Men's Glee Club in concert. Another highlight was the group's singing in the "Requiem Mass." The women performed with their male counterparts once again for the spring concert in May. Miss Beatrice Chauncey and the Women's Glee Club represented the University off campus at assembly programs at lo- cal high schools throughout the year.

Another invitation of national importance was received from the Music Educators' National Conference meeting in the 'Windy City in March. April heard the Choir present the world premier of Gre- gory Kosteck's "Lamentations of Jeremiah." Tedious preparation and a precision performance. December activities included Mozart's "Requi- em Mass" and the Christmas Assem- bly. October was the month for clinic participation under interna- tionally-known Dr. hiarold Decher.

Wednesday, three to four, every quarter. Although the Women's Chorus did not perform in any con- cert or participate in any musical as- sembly, its members strived toward perfection. Perfection in learning the techniques of vocal mechanics and choral singing. In her first year as director of the Chorus, Miss Peggy Starkey provided instruction in achieving this end. Concentration and dedication. Both were needed to gain success. Throughout the year, patriotic, sacred, classical, and folk music selections were studied. Popular numbers among members were songs from Leonard Bernstein's "West Side Story." Two-and-three part ensembles were also studied. Various numbers were then taped and played back later for evaluation purposes.

Tuesday and Thursday rehearsals, two hours a day. Still last-minute ad- justments frequented the days be- fore the performance. Dr. Paul Ali- apoulios portrayed the hero of Ver- di's "Falstaff," and Dr. Clyde hiiss, the man responsible for producing and directing the scenes, starred as Ford. Following fall quarter's suc- cess, the Opera Theater presented scenes from Mozart's "Don Giovan- ni" in winter. This opera was high- lighted by the unique lighting and staging of Allen Jones. "Living" statues and a journey into hell! Once again. Dr. Aliapoulios had the lead role. Scenes from another Mozart opera, "Marriage of Figaro," were also performed by an alLstudent cast. Rounding out the year's activi- ties, Puccini's "La Boheme" and Ver- di's "Don Carlos" were brought to the stage of the Recital hiall in spring.

vided other community services. Pre-schoolers at daycare centers were given a basic concept of music. One important aspect of the Society involved tutoring junior high and senior high school students in various areas of music. As a Halloween treat, a party was given at the Meadow- brook Day Care Center.
members of the Fine Arts Commit- tee planned events for the year. Chalk-ins, lectures, photo forays, contests. Characteristic of Green- ville's weather, a rainstorm washed away the results of the Committee's first chalk-in, but a second one days later saw East Carolina students ex- press their pent-up artistic thoughts on campus sidewalks. Three pieces of chalk for a dime or one for four cents. The Fine Arts Committee also sponsored Mike Fllnn's presentation of an "Audio-Visual Experience" at the Union Coffeehouse in February. Winter was spent in organizing spring activities. There was a film festival displaying the unusual and creative talents of the modern stu- dent generation. Prizes were award- ed for the best film and for the best entry in an Art/Photo contest. More student work was shown in an Art Show and Sale in May, and later, an Artists' Ball.

Recognized poets visited East Carolina via the North Carolina Poetry Circuit. Tar River Poets was once again published by the Univer- sity's Poetry Forum Series. Other guests of noted importance, such as Finland's Anselm hlollo, were invited to speak. Expression, criticism, read- ing - goals of the Forum.

the "Kings of the hHighway" because of its extensive touring schedule, the U.S. Army Field Band performed for a small but interested audience in Wright Auditorium. Organized in 1946 as the official musical repre- sentative of the Department of the Army, the "Kings" played many pop- ular favorites.
with an enthusiasm seldom seen in performances of this nature. In its first American tour, the Osipov Balalaika Orchestra of Moscow opened the ECU Artists Series for 1969-70. Earning the respect and affection of its capacity crowd, solo- ists and dancers alike were called back for individual encores. Receiv- ing three standing ovations, the or- chestra ended the concert amid the applause and approval of Its audi- ence.

Summertree portrays the ideals of youthful love and understanding
drama for a contemporary audience. Written by twenty-two year old Ron Cowen, Summertree was a memory play and a subtle questioning to to- day's problems: loss of identity, Viet- nam, the "generation gap." Zara Shakow, East Carolina's guest di- rector-in-residence, cast Rock Ker- shaw as the Young Man, an ambigu- ous symbol personal to all. Realism was achieved through reminiscent moments universal in meaning and familiar to everyone's childhood. One massive tree stood as the cen- tral character; each character rep- resented a limb and each limb a character. Often tender, sometimes cold, Summertree cast its shadow across the audience. The mood: tragic. The problem: all too com- mon. The answer: still a question.
as well as the hate and mistrust of an unpopular war.
Clowns closed the season for the Playhouse. Written by hHerb Gard- ner, the story revolved around the happy-go-lucky character of Murray Burns, portrayed by Mark Ramsey. Reluctant to seek either worthwhile employment or a spouse, Murray wished to become the lawful guard- ian of his nephew Nick. After many zany antics, the hapless hero ac- cepted his role in the "establish- ment." Steady income from a steady job would not really be so bad. Nor would his marriage to a pretty lass named Sandra, played by Nancy Cherry. Tommy Miller starred as Nick. His capricious actions and mis- chievous nature were shared with the audience. Murray and Nick were, in truth, "a thousand clowns."

for the East Carolina Playhouse, Finian's Rainbow was alive with song and dance. Especially dance. Chor- eography by Mavis Ray. Superb mix- ture of social candidness and mellow sentiment made the play a success. Each performance boasted standing room only. Cast in starring roles were veteran actor Mark Ramsey as Fin- ian, Victoria Summers as his daugh- ter Sharon, and Jim Longacre as the man she loved. Most remembered, perhaps, were the characters of Og the Leprechaun, portrayed by James Slaughter, and Susan the Silent, played by Nancy Mellichamp. Hligh- lighting this humorous story of a scheming Irishman's "lend-leasing" a magic pot-o-gold were these songs: "hlow Are Things in Sloccamor- ra?", "When I'm Not Near the Girl I Love," and "Old Devil Moon."

Cast In the lead role of the gentleman, Chandebise, was Ben Cherry, who also portrayed Poche, a look-alike servant at the "hlotel Pussycat." James Leedom played the difficult role of the would- be lover without a pallet. Supporting characters lent their many talents by emphasizing the obvious through gestures, expressions, and tone.

and witches brew. Macbeth played to capacity crowds for six nights in February. Shakespearean tragedy at its best. Students of local high schools enjoyed the special per- formance given solely for their bene- fit on Monday. Thursday, a special matinee for everyone. Under the di- rection of Edgar Loessin, Macbeth was well-received. Claude Woolman and Amanda Mulr, both veterans of the New York stage, were featured in the roles of the ambitious king and his queen. Realism was strength- ened by the contrasting personalities of the supporting cast. No less im- portant were the detailed and exact- ing costumes and sets provided by Margaret Gilfillan and John Snedon.

legislature run by 'fearsome three- some.' " So read the headline in an edition of the student newspaper. Condemned by some and praised by others. Dissatisfaction stemmed from disputes throughout the year. The major area of conflict within the Student Government Legislature concerned appropriations to the Rebel, one of the five All-American publications of its type in the nation.
In other actions, the legislature approved the constitution of the East Carolina League of University Scholars, among many others. Funds for a campus transit system were ap- propriated and a proposal for re- frigerator rentals for dormitories was passed by the legislature. Other leg- islation: New student, faculty, and staff ID regulations; a proposal for a pass-fail grading system for course electives and offset printing for the Fountainhead.
Major legislative action of the year was abolishment of Summer School Student Government. To pro- vide continuity in the executive branch, future SGA officers will serve for twelve month terms. In addition to receiving a regular sal- ary, the University will pay for their Summer School tuition as well.

In 1970, Senior Class officers were
unable fo accomplish anything. Fol- lowing in the same tradition, the Jun- ior, Sophomore, and Freshman Class officers came to the same end.
"Apathy. Lack of cooperation. No class funds." These were the reasons cited by class officers for their fail- ure to initiate or complete anything. Elected in the fall of each year, class officers have in the past attempted such projects as selling class blazers and entering a float in the hHome- coming parade. Even these attempts met with little success. This year, class officers did not sponsor or undertake any project.

Adams, also known as Robert K. Adams, upset his University Party opponent to head the Sumnrier School Student Government Asso- ciation. Basing his platform on im- provement of the communications between the student qovernment and the wants of the student, Adams arranged for the distribution to stu- dents of the minutes of each legisla- ture meeting and for earlier open- ing hours for the student union. Seven-thirty instead of eight o'clock. Other SGA business: endorsement of the Biafra fund drive and, for the first time in the school's history, an off-campus Summer School dance at the American Legion Hut. Complet- ing platform promises, the Summer School administration provided for student hostesses in women's dormi- tories in the evenings from five-thirty until six-thirty. Final action insured repair of the public address system in Green dormitory after two months of silence.

characterized the Publications Board for 1970. A year marked by action, determination, and temerity. For the .first time in the history of the Uni- versity, t h e Publications Board elected a student chairman, Chip- per Linville. A new image. Investi- gating the possibility of other changes, Linville appointed a special Reorganization Committee, headed by Professor Ira Baker. The purpose? To study the by-laws of Publication Boards of colleges and universities throughout the nation. The end re- sult: to provide completely new by- laws for the Publications Board. Pro- fessor Baker advocated complete independence from the SGA in the future.
In December, a motion was made proposing the feasibility of publish- ing the Fountainhead more than twice a week. Publications Board members approved the proposal. Summarizing the Publications Board's activity for the year, Chairman Chip Linville stated, "1970 was a year of progress, one in which the Publica- tions Board brought about many in- novations which were quite neces- sary in a growing university with pub- lications of such a high caliber as those at East Carolina."

Struggling with a stub- born SGA budget connmittee pre- sented almost more problems for the yearbook staff than trying to meet deadlines. Spirits were lifted fall guarter, however, when Donna Dixon, Editor-in-chief, journeyed with other staff members to Miami for the ACP convention. Chaos and disorganiza- tion overwhelmed the staff before "Turkey Day" holidays when the office was denuded and painted.
Major features of the largest Buc- caneer ever include a photo-essay of controversial aspects of student in- volvement. Like Moratorium Day, protest marches to the Tar River, and the Presentation of demands to Dr. Jenkins by the black students. The year was not "all work and no play." Mrs. Sorenson, the staff ad- viser, hosted a Christmas party in December. Climaxing the year was the banguet at the Candlewick Inn in May. Even more important - the arrival of the 1970 Buccaneer.

Other hindrances included a broken verityper and the temporary oss of essential photo reduction wheels fall quarter. Adding to such problems, dissatisfied students initi- ated a campus-wide petition de- manding an investigation into the operation of the Fountainhead.
Even under these setbacks, the Fountainhead maintained an admi- rable record of success. Started the year by changing the name of the newspaper from the East Carolinian to the Foun+ainhead. In November, the staff celebrated hiomecoming with a special twenty-eight page, two-section, color issue. hHaving con- verted to offset print earlier in the year, the Fountainhead staff secured a correspondent in Washington, D.C. and received Associated Press wire service. The service was a first among North Carolina colleges and universities.

spotless uniforms. An aura of profes- sionalism. Social unity among stu- dent nurses was paramount in all phases of the Student Nurses As- sociation. Promoting closer contact between their organization and the N. C. Student Nurses Associa- tion, the local chapter collected clothes and toys at Christmas for children at the Dobb's Farm In Kins- ton and the O'Berry Center in Cherry hHospital. Visits came reg- ularly from a variety of speakers. Fall quarter, a Greenville attorney lectured on the legal aspects of nurs- ing. Liable laws and malpractice suits. In January, the SNA heard an Army representative tell about the Army Nurse Corps. Among spring activities were mailing Easter Seals to Greenville residents. In April, of- ficers were installed at the annual banquet. Marion hHoward, SNA pres- ident explained of the group's ac- tivities, "We have tried to inform as many students as possible this year about the various aspects of a nursing career."

membership. No candidates for sum- mer school elections. First to appear on campus in 1966, the Student Party ceased to exist in 1970. Dis- satisfaction with political parties and lack of interest in student govern- ment led to the demise of the SP. Before the Student Party finally collapsed, it claimed two executive offices in the SGA: vice-president and historian.
Problems claim the attention of Steve Sharpe, Student Party Chairman.
Members Dan Sumners and Steve Sharpe pinpoint campaign strategy.
University Party. Gerald Robertson, President; Judy Morris, Secretary.
For the first time since its inception on campus, the University Party did not support or run a slate of candi- dates in spring SGA elections. Ru- mors spread that the party "ma- chine" no longer existed. Some were disillusioned; others were elated.
University Party accomplishments: During the summer session, "Coins for Crew." Door-to-door collections in the dormitories to help the ECU Crew rebuild after a crippling fire. Over $150 was donated. Endorse- ment of the Biafra Fund Drive. More phones in women's dormitories. Round table discussions allowing stu- dents to air complaints and contrib- ute opinions. A no-curfew dormitory for coeds.
In summer school elections, UP candidates suffered defeat as an in- dependent platform swept SGA ex- ecutive offices. Fall guarter, a re- newed interest in campus politics re- juvenated the University Party. Over twenty-five of those running on the UP ticket were victorious.
Campus problems are demanding; the Party listens to recommendations.

for mentally retarded children In the Greenville area. Attracting stu- dents into the profession of special education, the Student Council for Exceptional Children served as an outlet for the handiv/ork of excep- tional children in sheltered work- shops. Curler bags, burlap pocket- books, and pillows. Only a few of the items sold by SCEC members for the exceptional children. Not only were members able to work with exceptional children in a social context, but they also aided in the children's socialization process. Since East Carolina's council wanted to en- courage cooperation between other state chapters, it printed a state federation newsletter. Providing an on-campus outlet for special educa- tion news, the group also published a local newsletter.

of the Woman's Recreation Associa- tion covered a wide range of events. From field hockey to swimming and tennis to gymnastics. Organization. Supervision. Adding a competitive spirit, intramural volleyball, basket- ball, and Softball league were avail- able for sororities and dormitory students. In more specialized areas, clubs such as the Aquanymphs, a syncronized swimming group. Only for these who were willing to devote long hours of practice. A modern dance club offered an opportunity to perfect special dancing skills.
Power was here in the form of East Carolina's Woman's Residence
Council. Organized, active, and sen- sitive to the demands of women students, the council aspired to new heights of service during the year. Guided by the wishes of the wo- men students, this body worked with Dean Fulghum to bring about changes in living conditions, co- operation, and more consideration among dormitory students.
Up-to-the-minute ideas prevailed: plans for an all-night dorm, revi- sions in rules, later hours, and new freshman regulations. Women be- gan to voice opinions, and Green Dormitory was just the p'are to be heard. The new WRC office was located there.
The WRC offered women stu- dents not only an opportunity to become involved but also a chance to get ahead by offering an emer-' gency loan fund with up to twenty dollars available on a short-term basis. Other services included award- ing the Ruth White Scholarship- to an outstanding dormitory woman.

color televisions, and refrigerators. The Men's Residence Council was
responsible for the installation of three color televisions and ice ma- chines on the "Hill" and endorse- ment of the SGA's drive for re- frigerators in the men's dormitories. Initiating major changes, the MRC sponsored a dorm visitation day when coeds were able to visit men students in their rooms. Later, studies were made for the possibili- ty of opening the dormitory base- ments to girls every weekend. New office hours, more lights for the tennis and basketball courts, and spring dances were provided by the MRC for the men students. Winter quarter, a search for the "Ugliest Man on Campus" proved to be an effective method of raising funds.

Lobbying for lowering the voting age in North Carolina to eighteen, the Young Democrats Club endorsed the October Moratorium and at- tended the state-wide convention in Raleigh. Spring Quarter plans: a proposal to host the North Carolina Federation of Young Democrat's "Spring Rally." According to Sonny McLawhorn, executive committee member, "Bringing the rally to Greenville would revive the long needed interest in Democratic or- ganizational work in this area." Key- note speaker for the event: Charles Rose, former YDC president. Ac- tive support of the Democratic can- didates during the spring primaries marked the final activities of the Young Democrats.

another productive year, the Inter- Fraternity Council set the pace for fraternal projects and served as the governing body for East Carolina's twelve social fraternities. Exhibiting a spirit of cooperation, IPC co- ordinated Greek participation in the UNICEF drive during fall quarter. Sarcasm, satire, and just plain comedy insured a successful Skit Night for Greek Week. Lots of mud with plenty of spirit. Dodging mud puddles and beer cans while enjoy- ing their favorite beverages, Greeks and their guests were impressed with the "performance" of Archie Bell and the Drells at Hosier's farm. Greek achievements of the year were recognized by awards given at the annual IPC banquet. The ban- quet marked the last official duty of outgoing President Charlie Strick- land.
to meet thy doom! These words were issued as a warning to all so- rorities across the EC campus as Sigma Chi Delta Derby Day, 1969, proved to be larger than ever. Derby Day consisted of a mad, hysterical week when the sororities competed to win favor of the brothers and pledges of Sigma Chi Delta. During Derby Week, sororities showed their spirit in many ways. Refresh- ing keg parties, devastating house raids, hilarious skits, and cook-outs that made the brothers want to eat out more often. Exemplified only a small portion of the sorority spirit during Derby Week. The day before Derby Day brought on the Derby Chase. Usually on the mall, but be- cause of flash floods and tornado warnings, the Derby Chase was held in the "indoor arena" of the Sigma Chi Delta house. After the Derby Chase, the sororities counted their derbies while the surviving brothers desperately searched for their wounded and missing. Derby Day: a time of chaos and madness.
of the "Hill" was the scene of Lambda Chi's competitive Field Day events. Sororities left lady-like con- duct behind as they donned blue jeans and sweatshirts to tackle ob- stacle courses, and the sack and relay races. Coordination and skill were evident as contestants per- formed difficult feats such as div- ing through tires on the obstacle course. Trying to get completely through. Tension mounted as the girls readied themselves to make sure that they avoided slipping into the man-made mud hole during the tug-of-war. Accumulating the most points, the Alpha Phis hobbled off the field carrying top honors. The survivors were cordially invited to the Lambda Chi Alpha house to drink away their aches and pains.
to any coed and no shaving for one week. These were the basic rules for the Phi Kappa Taus as they spon- sored the annual Woman Hater's Week in November. During the week, devastating raids on the Phi Tau house at two o'clock in the morning. Unfortunate girls caught by a Phi Tau were attacked with everything from shaving cream to red paint. Sorority houses did not escape from the onslaught either as determined Phi Taus waged their relentless war on females. At the end of the week, brothers with a high number of points were en- closed in a cage on the mall where infuriated sorority sisters sought revenge and bombarded the brothers with flour, mud, and eggs. The unlucky brother with the high- est number of points found himself hoisted up a tree. A perfect target for anything the girls could throw. Recognized for more raids on the Phi Tau house than any other soror- ity, Chi Omegas received the trophy for their participation. Alpha Omi- cron Pi won honorable mention for the most continuous participation in theweek's events.
backstage, a spotlight failure, and a packed auditorium characterized the Alpha Xi Delta Greek All-Sing.
The general theme was "Up, Up, and Away" as sororities and fra- ternities came together in musical competition and talent exhibition. Judged on adherence to the theme, originality, tone guality, perform- ance, and appearance, participating Greeks spent hours in rehearsals. Alpha Phi, first place winners among sororities, sang a med!ey of songs depicting the history of aviation. Peter Pan, the first airplane, the Red Baron, the Air Force and the astro- nauts on the moon were Included. For the fraternities. Phi Kappa Tau took the honors for the third straight year. Forming their own band, the Phi Taus sang arrangements of "Don't Let the Sun Catch You Cry- ing," and "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore."
skits, and entertainment from "The Marlboros," and "Peggy Scott and Jo Jo Benson." Highlights of the annual Greek Week. Starting the week with Greek Games, enthusiastic pledges from the various fraterni- ties participated In a three-legged race, a sixty-yard dash, and a wheel- fa a r r o w race. Sore muscles and cramped legs.
As the week progressed, the fra- ternities presented in Wright Audi- torium "original" skits for the amuse- ment of all ECU Greeks. Awards for various accomplishments proved to be a major feature of the sched- uled events. After all the awards, skits, and athletic events were com- pleted, the most anticipated event of all descended upon the Greeks and their guests - the weekend con- certs. "Bob's Barn" provided the site for a dance, which featured the "Tempests" and "Peggy Scott and Jo Jo Benson." Climaxing Greek Week, a concert at Mosier's farm was marked by a brief outburst re- sulting from Greek rivalries.

at the ADPi house, news that one of the sisters received the Outstand- ing Greek Woman of the Year Award, Friday afternoon beer-runs to Schellar's - all of these events produced a memorable year for the ADPi's. Safari hats and "shades" failed to conceal ADPi beauties: Derby Day Queen, three fraternity sweethearts, and runner-up for Homecoming Queen. Striving to aid the community. Alpha Delta Pi utilized their talents to aid the Pitt County Fund and the Cancer Drive.
Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy and other Disney characters came to life and handed the ADPi's a first place award for hHomecoming house decorations. In December, the sis- ters traveled to Kinston with the Phi Taus to amuse underprivileged orphans at the Kennedy home. Com- p'eting the year, the always busy ADPi's hosted a Founder's Day and traveled to Phoenix, Arizona, for their national convention. Thus the finishing touches were added to the year.

in the basement and ghosts in the attic, hlysteria prevailed as terrified sisters barricaded themselves in their rooms with butcher knives and flashlights. If that were not enough . . . clay pipes. To say the least, life at the AOIl house was never dull. Sorority events included both charitable and social aspects; a faculty basketball game with proceeds donated to the Arthritis Foundation, sacks of clothing collected by con- cerned AOris for the Greenville Shel- tered Workshop, and a Christmas party during Winter quarter for mentally re- tarded children. AOH fortitude pre- vailed as they gave part of themselves during the AFROTC Blood Drive. An- aemic but happy, they received a plaque recognizing their efforts. Win- ners of Phi Kappa Tau's award for con- tinued participation in Woman hlater's Week. In the Alpha Xi Delta Greek All- Sing, AOris went "out of this world" to take second place honors.

This is sorority life? Even under con- stant attack by the "Tekes," the Alpha Phis proved their strategy something to be reckoned with as they survived the onslaught and walked away with Lambda Chi Alpha Field Day trophy. Jubilation overwhelmed the entire house in October when Diane Spry was crowned Buccaneer Queen for 1970. More followed! The Alpha Phis won by a nose as they captured second place in the Homecoming parade float division for their characteriza- tion of "Plnnochio and the Whale." Many long hours of diligent practice and rehearsal proved worthwhile when Alpha Phis were declared win- ners of the annual Greek All-Sing sponsored by Alpha Xi Delta. Em- phasis on community events proved an important facet of Alpha Phi fe. Sponsoring a foster child in the Greenville area and working for the Arthritis and Cardiac Drive marked the Alpha Phis' contribution to the improvement of national and local social conditions.

Ap- plying their three cardinal principles - leadership, service, and friendship - the A$fi's performed countless projects throughout the year. Col- lecting for UNICEF, the United Fund, and working for the Tuberculosis Association, the A$fi's maintained yearly service for the community. In 1970 the brothers extended their usual services by bringing homeless children from the Oddfellow Or- phanage in Greensboro to enjoy East Carolina basketball. Responsi- ble for the smooth functioning of numerous campus activities, they distributed The Key each year and ushered at the "free flicks" and in- ternational films. Who was responsi- ble for the biggest social event of Winter Quarter? The brothers of Alpha Phi Omega.

A cocktail party rejuvenated spirits during an indescribable hiomecomlng. WInteri quarter included a festive Thanks- giving banquet and a visit from thej "fat man" himself! Serious participa- tion in the hieart Fund and the Can- cer Drive engaged the Alpha Xis In community Interests. All sisters at the Alpha Xi hHouse worked together to plan Parents' Day, Alumnae Tea, | and Pink Rose Ball. Driving spirit! seemed the watchword of Alpha XI Delta In 1970. !

could happen In one year. Bombard- ed relentlessly by the Phi Taus dur- ing Woman Hater's Week, the Chi O's proved they were made of "tough stuff" as they survived the rigors of "Phi Tau War" and e- merged victorious to capture the trophy. For homecoming, the Chi Omegas took top honors when Susan Walton, first runnerup in the Miss North Carolina pageant, was chosen homecoming queen for 1970. Chi Omegas, learning the joy of sharing, teamed with Delta Sigma Pi to en- tertain underprivileged children at a Christmas party, in March, an Easter egg hunt. Pride in sorority achievements: first in scholarship and recipients of Pi Kappa Phi's most outstanding sorority award. True sisterhood abounded each afternoon when Chi Omegas congregated to watch "soapies" on the "tube." For the pledges, formal presentation at White Carnation. Apathy was prac- tically non-existent at the Chi Omega hiouse. Seven sisters held membership in the student legisla- ture, and five others were elected class officers.

year old and the Delta Sigs had already established an outstanding scholarship record - the highest over- iall average of all Greeks en campus. As proof, nnany brothers claimed Tiembership in professional and hon- orary fraternities. With all their tudying, they managed to find time For various civic and campus-related activities. What did it take to ac- complish such feats? Lots of Alka- peltzer and plenty of determination, brothers said. Numerous fund-raising projects and social events such as ounder's Day, Sailor's Ball, and the tarnation Ball highlighted the year. A/inter quarter: a Christmas party given with the AOlls for mentally etarded children. To raise funds for heir pledge class, fall quarter fledges raffled a gift certificate yorth fifteen dollars.
sad times, a house filled with lov- ing, sharing, giving, growing - an atmosphere overflowing with the spirit of sisterhood. All of this soon became memory as the Delta Zetas with mixed emotions awaited the completion of their new house.
A year bubbling with activity marked one of the biggest yet for Delta Zetas. A Flea Market drew an interested crowd to purchase original Delta Zeta creations. Week- ends of chaotic fun in the past. In the present, a Province Weekend. Who knew? - Anything could hap- pen when the Delta Zetas hit Las Vegas for a convention in June.
To complete the excitement of Christmas, the Delta Zetas added their own touch of brightness to the holiday season by sponsoring a party for underprivileged children. Pride in winning a second place for hlome- coming decorations and a Dream Dance in May climaxed the year with the Delta Zetas.

During Old outh weekend, the brothers and ledges took a step back in time, /lonths in advance, beards began to how on KA faces as they attempted o set the mood for their journey o the past. Mint juleps in hand, the irothers were transformed into Con- ederate soldiers and their dates into jouthern belles.
Robert E. Lee, embodying all the traditions for which KA exemplifies, was honored at Convivium when the KA Rose, Susan Walton, was se- lected. A weekend of cocktail par- ties. Even a sweetheart song.
The KAs found that the best remedy for class pressures seemed to be freguent trips to the beach. On the move not only to the beach but also on campus, the Kappa Alphas received first place honors in IPC Greek Week competition.
by Tau Kappa Epsilon and Kappa Alpha. Derby Day trophy winners, Panhellenic Scholastic award win- ners, and a first place holder in the sorority division for Homecoming floats, Kappa Deltas participated in a myriad of events throughout the year. Recipients of the Progress Award given at the national conven- tion in the Grand Bahamas during the summer, the sisters of Kappa Delta returned to Greenville to ini- tiate plans for the year. For hlome- coming, the pledges entertained with a reception for alumnae and worked hard preparing a winning parade float.
Kidnapping one of the sisters and
abandoning her at the "Old Jail" proved to be a disastrous attempt for the pledge class. Decorating the main staircase with "unmention- ables," the pledges really surprised the sisters during hHomecoming. If a sister happened to be caught "snaking" another sister's date, she probably would have found herself tied to a tree behind the Kappa Sigma house. Or she may have dis- covered her car draped with toilet paper and string.

at every window. What was so special about Umstead dormitory?. During "off hours," when they were not keeping an eye on Umstead, the Drothers were always ready for a oarty in their party room or in the "rum runner," which is better for ;mall get-togethers. Party facilities at the house were completed spring quarter with the addition of a patio, ideal for parties and spring week- ends.
Fall quarter, an all-out effort for hfomecoming swept Kappa Sigmas to a first place victory for their out- standing float decorations. Partici- pation and victory. Service and fun. Efficient organization afforded the brothers the time to show again their initiative in aiding, throughout the year, the UNiCEF drive, the United Fund, and the Blood Drive.
glimpses of Lambda Chi life. Fishing trips to Oriental. A tug-of-war be- tween one of the brothers and an Opel. Aiding in the spring physical fitness program, Lambda Chis spon- sored Field Day to help keep soror- ity girls in shape. An exhibition which proved amusing for the athletically inclined Lambda Chis. Among the serious occasions celebrated was Robert E. Lee Day.
There were countless exhibitions of brotherhood. Teaching special speech and driving courses. The great outdoors saw an equal amount of activity. Egg hunts benefited the underprivileged children. Contribu- tions aided the Arthritis and hieart Funds.
Instead of "Grazin' in the Grass," the Lambda Chis ran. Right into a string of trophies. Second in the President's Cup for field events. First in tennis, Softball, and golf. Those who did not run apparently studied. The result? The scholarship trophy for the highest academic average among fraternities.
at work! Shaving cream, paint, eggs, flour, and molasses bombarded brave coeds daring to raid the Phi Tau house during their annual Wom- an hlater's Week in November. Mid- night raids as sororities battled for the title of "Most Hated Woman." Chaos coupled with fun added a vigorous spirit prior to Homecoming festivities.
Returning from summer vacation, the brothers and pledges manned the ladders and brushes as they be- gan painting the exterior of their house. Formal rush parties, football games, and weekend bashes in the backyard party room entertained the Phi Taus fall quarter.
Before Christmas, a Brother- Pledge banquet at the Candlewick Inn featured a steak dinner and a
serenade for the fraternity sweet- heart. Christmas zeal overtook the Phi Tau house as the brothers spon- sored a Christmas party for the underprivileged children in Kinston. Parties at the American Legion build- ing and with the Pikas highlighted fall and winter quarters.
More serious moments included Parents' Weekend and Founder's Day. Providing food for needy fami- lies in the Greenville area and par- ticipating in the Red Cross Blood Drive emphasized Phi Tau commun- ity efforts. On campus, the Phi Taus were well represented as two of the brothers claimed the positions of president and treasurer in the SGA. Phi Taus also served on various com- mittees, attended State Student Legislature, and held membership on the Men's Judiciary.

and mummy disguises. Surprise raids on the Delta Zetas and nocturnal "gang" activities in the attic kept Pikas laughing throughout the year. Coeds found the area surrounding the Pika house to be a "no man's land" as the brothers bombarded everything in sight with water bal- loons. The mummy mask seemed to be the perfect way to terrorize any- one passing their house.
Games, prizes, and laughing chil- dren. Pikas and Sigmas entertained needy children at the Sigma house in November. For Homecoming, a cocktail party, a jazz trio, and a :ombo party at the house. Artistic efforts were rewarded as the broth- erhood captured second place for
Building enthusiasm for Christ- mas, the pledges treated the brothers to a gag gift party. For once, the pledges "got even" with the brothers. Pikas and Delta Zetas spread cheer with a visit to the Greenville Convalescent and Nurs- ing hlome. Christmas carols. Baskets of fruit and candy. Starting the New Year off with more parties, the Pikas and Phi Taus met at the Pika base- ment for a combo party.
Spring quarter activities: a buffet honoring parents, an Easter egg hunt for faculty children, and a champion- ship basketball game with the Theta Chis. Ending the year, Pikas rented a flatbed truck to transport brothers and dates to Mosier's farm during Greek Week.
their all proved worthwhile for the Pi Kaps as they compiled numerous awards during the year. Ranged from a first place victory for Home- coming house decorations to second place for the hlomecoming float, and capture of the President's Cup in intramurals.

Working for the Fraternity, pledges sold doughnuts and raffled a color television with a profit of $360 go- ing to the brotherhood. Winter quarter meant Red Carnation Ball and trips to the beach; a formal
dance and a new fraternity sweet- heart, Cindy Casey. On off days, the brothers always managed to stir up some excitement with plenty of beer and kidnapped sorority sisters. So- rorities retaliated when the brothers were auctioned off as slaves for a day. Much of the TKE's time was spent remodeling the basement. To the tune of $5,000. When complet- ed, the basement provided a per- fect place for pinball and "grub par- ties." Usually ended up in beer- throwing fights.

To insure a change of pace, a Christmas party for underprivileged children. Santa Claus even came to this one. With a sojourn to Green- ville for a New Year's Eve party,
Theta Chis started the new year off with spirits soaring (or crashing!!). Changing from G.Y.C.O.A.F. sweat- shirts to more formal attire, the brothers crowned Becky Lackey as Dream Girl of 1970.
Athletically, Theta Chis captured first place in fraternity intramurals. Richard Keir and Jim Modlin added trophies to the brotherhood as "Out- standing Athletes of the Year" for two consecutive years.

was all one could say about the 1969 football season. The 2-7 mark was way off expectations. Most expect- ed 7-2. A possible SC champ and Tangerine Bowl bid. Some thought of 9-0. Inconsistency was the biggest problem. Buc offense ground out 280 yards in total offense per game. Defense allowed 316. Opponents outscored ECU by 204 to 108. Only I 5 TD's all season.
Defense held except for a s'ump at end of season. Allowed on aver- age, three TD's a game. Good rec- ord for era of high powered offens- es. Bucs rushed for 1775 yards on 506 carries and 12 TD's. Passed for 745 yards and three TD's on 69 of 160 for 43 per cent. Nine opponents carried 376 times for 1200 yards and nine TD's. Outpassed Pirates easily. 1644 yards and 18 TD's on I I 9 of 2 I 7 attempts for 55 per cent. It was easier to go by air against the Pirates.

ECU started to drive. Buc- caneers stopped it. Pirates got final drive underway. Fizzled out. Third Pirate shutout in eight years.
Home opener was before 13,500. Louisiana Tech came in with possibly best QB in country in Terry Brad- shaw. "Terrific Terry" showed ECU fans why he was so highly touted. Fired passes all over Ficklen Stadium. Pirate defensive secondary hard pressed. Played a good game. Pi- rates finally scored their first TD of the year. Missed the PAT. Tech took a 24-6 win.

with triple option offense invaded Pirates' den. Teams started slow. Bulldogs' QB Passander went to work on Buc defenses. 'Dogs took and held the lead. ECU began to move of- fensively. Getting across the goal line still a problem. Scored only two TD's. Again missed one conversion. Passander ran the Bulldogs' version of the triple option, called the "Veer" to perfection. The Citadel waltzed to a convincing 31-13 win.
With a four game losing streak, the Bucs invaded Richmond City Stadium to battle the SC's defend- ing champion Richmond Spiders. EC was a decided underdog. Spiders led by QB Charlie Richards and All- America candidate Walker Gillette. Pirates contained by Richmond's league leading defensive unit. ECU put seven points on the board. Spi- ders scored 24.
Salukis of Southern Illinois were the first team the Bucs faced that was not a passing team. Both squads set to grind it out on the ground. Southern Illinois was heavily favored. Pirates scored first and ground it out. Led 10-3 going into last mo- ments. Salukis' drives halted by in- terceptions and returns by Rusty Scales and Mike Mills. EC scored an insurance TD to ensure an upset I 7-3 victory.

Wildcats came to Greenville with best offense in SC. Best short passing game in the country. QB Gordon Slade, Ail-American candi- date, ran the show. Excellent passer. Pirates fired up. Defense primed for Slade. Held in first half. Offense controlled the tempo with vicious ground attack that let EC hold the ball. Billy Wightman ran around and over the Wildcats. Pirates forged a 27-7 halftime lead.
Mistakes in second half and defen- sive lapses allowed the Wildcats to take a 42-27 victory.
Coach Stas reflects the Bucs' poor season.
after their loss to Davidson, the Bucs traveled to Huntington, West Vir- ginia, to play Marshall in a snow- storm. No contest. Marshall scored in its second play from scrimmage and routed the Bucs, rolling up a 38-7 score. Only two drives. One TD. No motivation. Team flat.
Southerners clobbered Pirates by 65-0 last year. No offense or de- fense by EC. Bucs sought revenge. Tight defensive struggle for most of the game. USM scored first to take a 7-0 lead. EC scored to tie the game. Southerners scored again. USM receiver outreached Buc de- fender for the ball. Winning TD. Final score 14-7. Pirates ended up on the short end of the stick.

January 27, 1970, Dr. Leo Jenkins celebrated the tenth anniversary of his presidency. During these ten years, ECU hod become the fast- est growing Institution in North Carolina. The curriculum expanded to include 53 academic departments, the faculty and student bodies ex- perienced increasing numbers and higher quality, and the campus broadened, becoming no longer a "pedestrian campus." New buildings replaced the sentimental landmarks of ECTC, and East Carolina College had become a University. As Dr. Jenkins began his eleventh year as president, he declared "Change at ECU will be as characteristic of the I970'5 as it was of the I960's."
During the year, Dr. Jenkins initi- ated a program designed to open new channels of communication be- tween the community colleges and the university community by ena- bling these colleges to send their promising students directly into a university system. Plans were made to institute the state's first educa- tional program in police administra- tion and corrections. While archi- tectural drawings were submitted for School of Allied hHealth Professions' BIdg., Governor Scott expressed sup- port of an ECU medical school.
Never allowing his plans for the future of the school to interfere with his deep concern for the welfare of the students, Dr. Jenkins greeted everyone he encountered with a wave, a smile and a cheerful "hello."

At- torney General Robert Morgan chaired the committee which includ- ed three other members: Mr. Regi- nald McCoy, Vice-President; Mr. Troy Dodson and Mr. James Whit- field. Acting in absence of the en- tire Board of Trustees, the Executive Committee approved new employ- ees, future budgets, campus con- struction, the purchase of land, and new faculty members.
Appointed by the Governor and approved by the Senate of North Carolina Legislature, members served for a tenure of eight years.
As the chief administrative offi- cial. Dr. Jenkins was responsible to the Board of Trustees. The Board of Trustees was empowered to consider any phase of the University's opera- tion, but usually Dr. Jenkins asked the Board to investigate particular mat- ters. One of the main considerations of the Board in the past year was the increase in student fees and tu- ition.

and women in a position of admin- istering 10,000 students with 10,000 opinions. All different. Sometimes a coat and tie were not enough. Un- known and nameless to most of the students, they were susceptible to the warranted (or unwarranted) blame of the dissenters. Black pro- test, here as elsewhere. The adminis- tration answered student demands with restraint and moderation. The blacks cried, "Don't sidestep!" Both restraint and moderation were essen- tial with the existence of moratori- ums, a Rally for America, and the "silent majority." Like everyone else, the "establishment" suffered from the university's "growing pains" as it spent another year in the cramped, remodeled offices of Whichard Build- ing, the former home of both the music department and the former ECTC library.
