STUDENT LIFE











26






The school year began in the early days of an Indian summer as thou- sands of students unpacked their bags and welcomed campus with a smile. Moving in was that rarest of times: a time to be lazy, a time when nothing needed to be done but there was everything to do. Fees were to be paid, steps to be climbed, and bags to be shouldered and shuffled into dusty corners. To upperclassmen, it was the lull before the storm, a time to reflect, to resolve, to resume the old habits and friendships. There were hours to curse aching muscles, to drink toasts to success, and to view with amusement the lost and bewil- dered. But to these lost and bewil- dered, it was a time to be remem- bered. The beauty of an awakening campus soothed knotted nerves; only parents bemoaned the day-long problems of traffic and unpacking. To freshmen, moving in meant moving out of the familiar. Room keys did more than open doors. They unlocked dreams of illusioned independence.

27






Registration Day. It was hard to tell which rose first, the sun or the stu- dents who took their places in the line forming outside Memorial Gymnasi- um. The long line that angled its way around the traffic continued well past noon and melted ever so slowly into shorter lines at the Students Supply Store and University Book Exchange; at the cafeteria, soda shop, and Croatan; and at Ficklen Stadium, Minges Coliseum, and McGinnis Audi- torium.

28






From registration the line branched into lines of students day in and day out. Down the hill, across the mall, upstairs, downstairs, downtown, they walked. Eventually would come the grandest line of all: at graduation. Few in line at registration thought that far ahead. It was just a long, long line.

29






Confusion and turmoil heralded the first days of classes. Students fortu- nate enough to escape the misery of drop-add packed into the Supply Store instead. They elbowed their way from counter to counter, de- plored the cribbing in used textbooks, and cursed the prices of new ones. The list of supplies to be purchased was infinite. As more and more stu- dents passing by the registers watched the dollar signs flash up time and again, more and more students muddled their way through the crowds to the Student Bank or to the Soda Shop for a cheap orangeade to cool their heated tempers.

32






Inconvenience and noise - a two- word summary of dormitory life at ECU. Many students felt that Satan himself governed dormitory life, for hell-raising began when the first bag was unpacked, and the noise contin- ued throughout the year. Doors creaked, faucets leaked, firecrackers popped, water balloons burst, and feet stomped. Outside noise from traffic, trains, blaring telephones, dribbling basketballs, and loud ra- dios, record players, and televisions aggravated studies. Freshmen and sophomores, required to live on cam- pus, added to the tumult of yelling, screaming, cursing, and laughing. Standard dormitory activities included panty raids, bull sessions, night-long card games, and an occasional hour or two of study.

To: All Male Dormitory Residents From: Dean of Men's Office

Subject: Statement concerning disorderly and/or disruptive ac- tions.

Within the past three weeks there has occurred around the women's dormitories two disruptive panty raids resulting in ex- tensive property damage as well as personal injury requiring medical attention. These desultory incidents, attended by abu sive and vulgar language, have arisen from excessive mob ac- tion which no longer can be described nor accepted as whole some fun normally enjoyed by college students. There have been too many complaints and displays of concern by students here for the purpose of securing an education for us not to take whatever measures are necessary to protect their rights and in terests as well as our own should other incidents arise. In these critical times when tensions are so high, we cannot enjoy the luxury of mob action.

In the future should a panty raid or any uncontrollable, disor derly and/or disruptive mob action arise, students will be warned to disperse and go about their business. Any who per sist will have their ID cards confiscated and summarily suspend- ed pending a complete hearing before the University Board of East Carolina University. Those failing to relinquish their ID cards or who do not have them on their person will be consid- ered non-students and arrested for trespassing.

Our policy is to treat each student in a fair and equitable manner and to act effectively and decisively should individual safety and property be jeopardized. We expect the policy above to be initiated only in those extreme cases where the thrill of mob action takes precedence over an individual's objec- tive of pursuing his education.

It is assumed that this memorandum will be accepted with the seriousness and concern that it was written.

Approved by Robert L. Holt

Dormitories themselves were cause for inconvenience. The small and dusty rooms were hot in the summer and cold in the winter. Mattresses were stained, lighting was dim, and walls were thin. Showers in Belk sprayed water on the floors, and Ragsdale's parlor needed improve- ment. For lack of space, baggage was stacked along the halls in Cotten; and in Jones, bed springs sank to the floor.

Rules caused other inconveniences. Although alcoholic beverages were not allowed in the dormitories, Mon- day mornings found empty liquor flasks and beer cans lined along the stairwells. Students learned to live with the shortage of parking places, mandatory house meetings, and ad- ministrators who were turtle-slow in changing visitation policies. Coeds had their own problems with ECU's double standard and the inconvenien- ces of off-campus permits, phone duty, prying house mothers, room check, negligent hall proctors, and 1 :00 a.m. fire drills. For freshmen, closed study proved a further incon- venience. Reacting to the barrage of notices from the Dean of Housing, Dean of Men, Dean of Women, and Vice-President Robert Holt, students filled trash cans week after week with the unread memoranda.

laiming SGA censorship, the Fountainhead goes on strike.

Students felt the need to become a part of the academic community around them. Greek rush at fraternity and sorority houses gave many the comradeship they had been seeking. Others sought to be of service to their fellow students by competing for posi- tions in the Student Government As- sociation, Men's Residence Council, and Women's Residence Council. Publications, clubs, honorary fraterni- ties, intramurals, and sports provided a sense of belonging to still more.

Student interest was aroused time and again throughout the year. Fol- lowing a rift between the campus newspaper and the SGA, there was further feuding between individual representatives in the legislature and the SGA Executive Council. At the same time, charges of obscenity lev- eled at the Fountainhead again brought criticism to the paper.

In March, the MRC and SGA de- fied present administrative policy and passed a limited form of visitation for the men's dormitories; a demonstra- tion, student arrests, rallies, and a boycott ensued. Three University Board cases were heard in conjunc- tion with abusive language directed at Dr. Jenkins in the campus newspa- per. Finally, SGA president Glen Crowshaw brought before the Board of Trustees the MRC visitation propos- al, but, without debate, the Board proceded to deny all visitation rights.

Weeks of classes wore on into months; as finals approached, the anxiety of three strenuous months began to show in the faces of stu- dents. Tests, papers, and nightlong cramming sessions had taken their toll. Eyes, once bright, stared dis-' tantly, bloodshot under drooping eyelids. Professors, equally tired from grading countless papers, stared back. As the quarter drew to a close, students longed for cuts they did not have or could not take; notes became illegible; concentration proved more difficult. Inevitably the early signs of winter appeared, and the quickening of dusk reflected the darkening of spirits.

38






When finals came, a power failure accompanied them. Lights faded all over campus and made studying nearly impossible, but examinations were taken in spite of the lengthening shadows that inched across desktops. Nevertheless, with the tension of ex- aminations came the relief that fol- lowed their completion; and when the last finals were taken, students made their quarterly exodus from ECU for a welcome visit home.

Weary from the strain of fall quar- ter, students found in the early weeks of winter term a time to relax and enjoy the prospects of Christmas holi- days. Students braved the cold and shopped along the gaily decorated streets. The beauty of campus mir- rored the happy spirit of Christmas as lights were strung in room windows, in dormitory lobbies, and at Wright Circle.

Throughout winter term, students were challenged by the elements. Chilling their feet and making walking hazardous, snow welcomed students on their return to campus. Ice, dan- gerous yet beautiful, glistened on weighted branches; huge limbs, strained beyond endurance, toppled to the ground.

42






Damage from ice and wind took weeks to clean up. Strewing leaves and litter across campus, bitter cold winds tugged and pulled at the bundled creatures scampering to and from classes and forced them to seek the welcome relief that transit buses provided.

43






With time the last days of classes, finals, and the woes of winter term became memories; students eagerly anticipated the arrival of spring. Fre- quent thunderstorms were little more than a bother, for spring fever had everyone in its grasp. Coeds, sporting the latest in fashions, attracted the at- tention of ECU's male population.

Meanwhile, nature turned a kinder eye towards campus. Birds chirped constantly from their green-leafed haunts, dogs pawed playfully in the freshly-mowed grass, children at re- cess from Wahl-Coates school dis- rupted classes with their youthful shouts of enthusiasm, and campus chimes echoed the joy of springtime.

Warm weather fast upon them, stu- dents once again claimed the mall as their special place of study and relax- ation. Mid-day found coeds tanning in sun courts and men basking in the courtyard of Scott or along "Jones beach." ECU became more and more a "suitcase college" as hundreds of students drove off for weekends at the beaches. At Minges Coliseum and Memorial Gymnasium, pools became crowded. "Happy Hour" seemed happier, for frosty mugs of beer did more then quench thirsts. They in- spired visions of summer vacation and lazy summer days.

47






48






Summer days at East Carolina brought to the minds of many the im- mortal words of Lowell: "Oh what is so rare as a day in June/Then if ever come perfect days/And heaven tries earth if it be in tune/And over it softly her warm ear lays."

Life seemed but a shadow of what had gone before as an easygoing air belied the furious activities of spring. Between watermelon and ice cream feasts and occasional concerts in Wright or on the mall, the lost stu- dents attending freshman orientation provided hours of amusement for up- perclassmen. Two thousand students, made drowsy by the hot summer sun, echoed the voices of 10,000. As June melted into July, and July drifted into August, ECU waited in the heat for the rat race to begin another lap in fall.

In Memoriam

Memorial services for the team were conducted at Huntington, West Virginia, on Sunday evening

November 14, 1970. Following their loss to East Carolina University, the Marshall University "Thundering Herd" made its last journey. For rea- sons still unknown, the plane which carried the players, coaches, and sup- porters scraped the trees at the edge of the Huntington, West Virginia, run- way and burst into flames. All of the seventy-five people on board were killed.

November 14, 1970. Students at East Carolina and Marshall shared a common grief. Memorial services here, as at Huntington, echoed the unity seldom seen except as the result of tragedy.

Two services were held at ECU following the "Thundering Herd" tragedy.

After the Pirates' fifth loss of the season, students found a means of re- newing their spirits at a Thursday pep rally preceeding Homecoming. Men students and Greeks gathered on the mall, and coeds hung from the win- dows of Fleming and Jarvis dormi- tories. Continuing through Friday, en- thusiasm reached a fever pitch as pa- rade-time arrived Saturday morning. Illustrating the theme of "Cartoon Carnival," the parade wound through downtown Greenville. Spectators bundled up to ward off the chilly 10:00 a.m. winds of the October morning.

Following a spec- tacular performance by the Marching Pirates, the candidates for Homecom- ing Queen took their places at mid- field.

Decorations Depict Cartoon Carnival

One of the highlights of Homecom- ing '70 was the enormous task frater- nities, sororities, and woman dormito- ry students undertook in decorating their lawns and houses for the big weekend. Chicken wire, tissue paper, and paper mache were twisted, mold- ed, and shaped to form some of the most interesting decorations to adorn the campus in many years.

First place among fraternities went to Sig Eps for their Roadrunner dis- play; sorority first-place honors went to Delta Zeta for its Beetle Bailey characterizations. Presenting a haunt- ed house display, Cotten won first place in the dormitory division.

er 'Kicks Off Homecoming Entertainment

For Your Precious Love."

Setting off the entertainment for Homecoming was the "Ice Man," Jerry Butler. One of the most polished performers in this field of music, But- ler brought to East Carolina all the excitement and emotion which have become the trademarks of the "Ice Man." Joined by the girls of Honey and the Bees, the soulful singer smoothly delivered his greatest hits: "Mr. Dream Merchant," "Make It Easy on Yourself," and "For Your Precious Love." His audience com- pletely thrilled, Butler ended with the hand-clapping, foot-stomping "Amen."

Friends, Guess Who Headline Concerts

Sunday afternoon concerts mixed the soul sound with the hard rock to the Guess Who and the Green Lyte Sunday. The Guess Who performed first; and the popular Canadians belt- ed out their greatest hits: "These Eyes," "Laughing," "American Woman," and "No Time." Accom- panying them was the Green Lyte Sunday, a lesser known but equally professional rock band. They were followed by the Friends of Distinction, who performed with the distinction which has brought them far-reaching fame. Finishing out the entertainment for Homecoming '70, the Friends ended with "Grazing in the Grass" amid cries for "encore."

Pirates Jamboree had it all. On Friday, following the "acid" rock of Dreams, the Ike and Tina Revue proved that sweet soul is often best hard and heavy. Tina and the Ikettes shimmied their way across stage and shook the coliseum to its rafters. Their rendition of "I've Been Loving You Too Long" was one of the most memorable mo- ments of the weekend, as was their vigor- ous "Proud Mary," which earned them a standing ovation before the number was finished. Saturday's concert featured Richie Havens and the Ten Wheel Drive, another heavy rock group which had gained fame at Woodstock. Doc Watson, popular North Carolinian, entertained a crowd Sunday on the mall with his folk music and country stories of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Graduate in Outdoor Ceremony

Graduates - 1971.

Cool fall like temperatures, a misty rain, and a canopy of umbrellas made ECU's 62nd annual commence- ment exercises unique in the history of the university. Settling over Ficklen Stadium minutes before approxi- mately 2,000 graduates filed out of Minges Coliseum at 5 o'clock, the light misty rain had changed to a steady but heavier drizzle by the time speaker for the event, Dr. Raymond Lewis Bisplinghoff, deputy director of the National Science Foundation, was introduced. With an estimated 10,000 persons present, umbrellas popped up like mushrooms through- out the stadium.

In addressing the graduates, Dr. Bisplinghoff outlined four proposi- tions. The first, he explained, in notic- ing the weather, was that graduation speeches should above all be brief. Others, he noted, were ". . . man is inherently capable of governing him- self . . ., self government requires education . . ." and ". . . we need to rededicate ourselves to rationalism and education."

President Jenkins, who introduced the speaker, gave what he termed his "annual report to the stockholders."

Jenkins told the audience that "the 2,000 graduates we honor today are a measure of our success, and I want to congratulate them. They are with- out doubt among the best graduates of our time, and I am confident that they will reflect credit upon themselves, their family and the uni versify."

And to over 2,000 graduates who filed out of Ficklen Stadium minutes later, still in a mist of rain, it was over.

With a steady drizzle falling, family and friends form a canopy of umbrellas.

Approximately 2,000 graduates begin to file into Ficklen Stadium at exactly 5 o'clock.

Sally-Jane Heit Plays Dolly Levi

"Matchmaker, Matchmaker, Make Me a Match" was clearly the theme of the delightful takeoff on Thornton Wilder's The Matchmaker, also known as Hello, Dolly! The play re- volved around the flamboyant char- acter of Dolly, portrayed by Sally- Jane Heit. A nosy, domineering but effervescent marriage-broker, Dolly determined to reserve for herself her most eligible client, Mr. Vandergel- der. Complications arose when Van- dergelder's two brow-beaten clerks wearied of their seven-day work week and traveled to New York City for a fling. Unfortunately, their boss had also gone there to be introduced to Mrs. Malloy, a dainty milliner. With lavish costumes of the "Gay Nine- ties" and the brilliant choreography of Richard Lyle, Dolly made a grand entrance as she descended the bejew- eled staircase to the tune, "Hello, Dolly!" This memorable scene en- thralled the viewers even after its eleventh performance.

Vandergelder's two clerks, portrayed by Bill Stone and Jim Leedom, es- cort Mrs. Malloy (Anita Carpenter) and Minnie Fay (Rosemary La Place) to the Harmonia Gardens.

A sluttish Aldonza is punished for her kindness to Don Quixote

Summer Playhouse Produces 'La Mancha'

Man of La Mancha, a swift-moving musical presented in the summer by the ECU Playhouse, gave eager listen- ers a message of courage. Cervantes' masterpiece revealed the hilarious picaresque adventures of the fum- bling knight who imagines that the vulgar world around him is still the golden age of chivalry. David Long starred in the dual role of Cervantes and Quixote with Jeananne Kain as Aldonza, the lovely, reeking, bar- maid. The hit song "The Impossible Dream" and "Man of La Mancha" pervaded the entire musical. The flex- ibility of David Long moving from one role to the other captured the unwa- vering attention of the audience. Cos- tumes and sets created by Margaret Gilfillan and John Sneden added the finishing touches to the award-win- ning musical.

Don Quixote dreams his "Impossible Dream."

Graham Pollard Portrays Pseudolus

Cast of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum acknowledges applause

In A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Graham Pollock starred as Pseudolus, a witty and shrewd slave. Pseudolus' young mas- ter and his aging father loved the same girl. Philia, the girl, had been promised to a Roman warrior upon his return from battle. Pseudolus created duplicates of Philia and tried to keep them from meeting. The key- note of warning to the audience for a night filled with uncontrollable laugh- ter was set at the beginning as Pseu- dolus led the introductory song "Comedv Tonight."

Gregory Zittel (Hysterium) grudgingly obeys Baillie Gerstein (Domi- na) his domineering wife.

'Pirates' Provides Adventure and Humor

Who will exterminate whom and who will marry whom provided the conflict for The Pirates of Penzance. This skull-and-crossbones madcap centered around Frederick, portrayed by Graham Pollock, who had been brought up against his will as a "pilot" by a band of gentle pirates. Frederick sought revenge by planning to have all of the pirates jailed. Love for the General's daughter, Mabel, played by Rosalind Breslow, initiated the complications. Serious yet humor- ous antics of the pirates were su- perbly executed. Music by Gilbert and Sullivan provided an atmosphere of adventure for the audience.

Bobby Lee Stars In 'George M!'

Melody, patriotism, and braggado- cio typified George M! This musical presented the biography of the great song-and-dance man, George Cohen, portrayed by Bobby Lee. Cohen was proud to be an American and wanted his friends to share that pride. He pro- duced musicals appropriate to the times. It was the spirit of these musi- cals that made George M! a success in the period from 1968 to 1969, when the American people began to doubt the present and future of the U.S.

From Cohen's bag of songs came rousing numbers: "I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy," "It's a Grand Old Flag," and the immortal theme song of World War I, "Over There."

George M. Cohen's first wife asks him for a divorce.

Vulgar tenants plead for a portion of Aldonza (Violet Santangelo)

'Man of La Mancha' Enchants Theater Goers

Man of La Mancha appeared for the second time in the fall. A skillful combination of biography and ro- mance, the play told of the Spanish novelist, Miguel de Cervantes, and the immortal romantic character he created, Don Quixote. Joshue Hecht, internationally-known actor and oper atic virtuoso, appeared as Quixote. Violet Santangelo, equally re- knowned, portrayed Aldonza, the slattern tavern wench.

Drama Department Produces Biography of Thoreau

Illustrating youth in a search for freedom and individuality, The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail revealed the dangers and pitfalls of life. Thoreau, portrayed by Frederick Combs, bat- tled the elements of conformity in so- ciety. Because of the theme of the play, youth could identify with Tho- reau's plight; and parents could ex- amine their own ideals and values. The play itself had one setting, the prison cell, where Thoreau was imprisoned unjustly. At the end, Tho- reau discovered that his ideal values were not applicable in the real world. Unique lighting and stage props pro- vided variations of the one scene, but most of the props provided had to be imagined by the audience through the actions of the characters.

Emerson's wife ponders Thoreau's situation.

Director Edgar Loessin discusses minor changes in lighting with Frederick Combs and Andrew Gilfillan.

The King (Mark Ramsey) pleads for more time

Inesco Play Deals With Moral Decay

Moral decay and human depravity reflected the predominant theme of Exit the King from the time the curtain was raised to the time it was lowered, lonesco revealed the decline of socie- ty and civilization through the death of King Berenger I, a mythical monarch. Mark Ramsey appeared as Berenger with Donna Goodnight and Vickie Batchelor as his queens, Chris Jones as his doctor, Danny Irvine as his bodyguard, and Linda Taylor as his nurse. Requiring acting ability in its most artistic form, the play practi- cally eliminated the use of props.

Mrozek's 'Tango' Depicts Generation Gap in Reverse

Slawomire Mrozek's Tango, a "genera- tion gap in reverse," examined Americans' nostalgia for the social morality and for- mality that the Bohemian revolution in this country had destroyed. The play centered around a madcap family which included a cackling, baseball-capped Grandma, por trayed by Mitzi Hyman, an insanely deco- rous Uncle Eugene, played by George Mer- rell, and the Play's protagonist, Arthur, who was Jim Leedom. Enjoyable moments for the audience occurred when Eugene presented his one-line commentaries pre- cisely at the wrong time.

Play Deals With City Problems

Homicides, mugging, and general violence terrorized the inhabitants of a middle-class apartment in "The Lit- tle Murders." Cartoonist Jules Feif- fer's play spotlighted the thousand- and-one minor annoyances that all city-dwellers contend with in a mod- ern metropolis. The family who expe- rienced these annoyances were the Newquists: Anita Brahm and James Slaughter as parents; Amanda Muir as the successful daughter; Chris Jones, the homosexual son; and Mark Ramsey as the daughter's suitor. J. G. Stockdale, guest professor in drama at ECU, directed this portrayal of a burlesque world raging with disorder.

Giovanni Highlights 1971 Artist Series "

Climaxing the Artist Series' season was the story of Don Giovanni and his trials and tribulations with his many loves. As the story opened, Don Giovanni killed the Commenda- tore after attacking the Commenda- tore's daughter. The daughter sought revenge; and Giovanni's ex-wife, Elvi- ra, joined her in hope of exposing Don Giovanni. Boris Goldovsky con- ducted the orchestra which accom- panied the singers and introduced the opera.

Jose Greco

a master of his art.

Jose Greco Company Thrills Admirers

Bringing a portion of Spain to Greenville, Jose Greco and his troupe entertained East Carolina students in March. Their program provided the audience with an insight into the dance and dress of the Spanish from Medieval times to the present. One of the most delightful parts of the pro- gram was called "Gypsy Sabbath." Full of humor, passion, human con- flict, with an ending dealing with the fertility ritual of the Andalusian Gypsies, this selection ended the pro- gram. Greco's leading lady, Nana Lorca, combined grace of movement with castanets and the traditional clicking of heels. Greco's continual flirtations with the younger female dancers added an atmosphere of fri- volity. Moving with grace and supple- ness, Jose Greco was a master of his art.

Ivan Davis, pianist, pauses for reflection between two captivating performances.

Famous Concert Pianist Plays Here

Ivan Davis, a dynamic young concert pi- anist, in February amazed an ovprflow au- dience in Wright Auditorium. He performed in a solo concert as well as a concert with the East Carolina University Symphony Or- chestra. For his concert of solo piano music, Davis chose seldom-heard composi- tions of the nineteenth centruy Romantic Period. His first piece, Chaconne in D Minor by Bach-Busoni, provided a slow, waltzing beat. Contrasting this slow, relax- ing music, Davis played Sonata in C Major, Opus 24, by Weber. The third movement of this selection was a nervous minuet with

the finale exemplifying the famous "per- petual motion." The last part of the pro- gram, Hungarian Rhapsody, No. 12 by Liszt, poured forth dreamy, melancholic music combined with feverish languor in the wild, impetuous "Friska" section.

Ivan Davis highlighted the East Carolina University Symphony Orchestra concert program with his appearance. According to Dr. Robert Hause, conductor, Davis' par- ticipation was the Orchestra's first perform- ance with a major concert and recording artist. Dr. Hause requested Davis to per- form Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.

Opera Star Delights University Audience

Miss Anna Moffo, opera star, brightened a dull East Carolina cam- pus fall quarter. In total silence, a se- quin-studded Miss Moffo appeared on the stage of Wright Auditorium and elicited immediate applause from the audience. Accompanied by James Shomate at the piano, Miss Moffo sang selections from Mozart, Richard Strauss, Bellini, Barber, Menotti, and Verdi. She portrayed Amino singing

a merry song of her betrothal to Elvi- no in the entrance scene from La Son- nambula by Bellini. She also depicted a gay young lady who considered as folly the thought of being loved in a scene from La Traviata by Verdi. De- scribed by the London Opera maga- zine as "the last of the real 'prima donna'," Anna Moffo proved her vir- tuosity as a truly remarkable star.

Miss Anna Moffo listens to the arpeggio of her next number.

Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra Appears Here in Concert

Conductor William Steinberg directs Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra in a concerto

Cold November winds accompa- nied the Pittsburgh Symphony Or- chestra to the East Carolina University campus. In the absence of Conductor William Steinberg, Associate Conduc- tor Donald Johanos directed the or- chestra. Excitement ensued when the audience learned that concert violin- ist, Michael Rabin, would perform with the orchestra. An appreciative audience listened as the 101 -member orchestra filled the auditorium with forceful notes. Concert numbers in- cluded The Abduction from the Sera- glio by Mozart; Concerto No. 2 for Violin and Orchestra in G Minor, Opus 63 by Prokofiev; and Sympho- ny Fantastique, Opus 14 by Berlioz. Berloiz's symphony was a daring ad- venture in realistic program music within the inherited symphonic frame. He called the result an "instrumental drama."

Flutists show their skill in playing Symphony Fantastique, Opus 14, by Berlioz.

Bach Aria Soloists Impress Audience

Composed of nine world famous soloists, the Bach Aria Group ap- peared in concert at East Carolina University in December. Under the di- rection of William H. Schiede, this unique ensemble emphasized the quality and quantity of Bach's major works and clearly impressed the audi- ence with its musical deftness. By the time the Bach Aria finished its open- ing work, the capacity crowd was completely thrilled by the brilliance of the Group. Highlighted by a duet from Cantata 78 for soprano, alto, cello, and continuo, the program rec- ognized equally the instrumental and vocal soloists.

Orchestra Plays With Ivan Davis

Directed by Robert L. Hause, the Symphonic Orchestra thrilled audi- ences with six concerts during the year. A pops Concert by the pool at the Candlewick Inn started off the year with a cool dip. For the Orches- tra's first formal concert, it celebrated with Beethoven's "Eroica Sympho- ny," the 200th anniversary of his birth. Christmas brought the choruses and Orchestra together for Ernest Bloch's Sacred Service. Highlight of the concert series came when the Or- chestra accompanied the famous pi- anist, Ivan Davis, for the annual win- ter concert. In March, the Orchestra played for the elementary grades in Greenville City Schools. The concert featured student soloists.

Preoccupied with tours, the Symphonic Wind Ensemble ap- peared in fall, winter, and spring quarter concerts, an annual tour, sev- eral lawn concerts and at commence- ment exercises. For the winter con- cert, the program included "March, Opus 99" by Serge Prokofieff and "Lincolnshire Posy" by Percy Graing- er with solos by East Carolina faculty members. Group performances in- cluded original compositions by many well-known composers and were di- rected by distinguished conductors.

Students await cue from director.

Jones Directs Marching Pirates

Usual routines of the Marching Pi- rates were changed under the new di- rection of Harold A. Jones. Skirts and plumed hats in the form of a color guard unit complemented the band. Two new feature twirlers appeared to the delight of the men spectators. The 160-member Marching Pirates pranc- ing across the field at home games in a brilliant array of white, purple, and gold impressed the ECU student body and visitors.

At the conclusion of the football season, the East Carolina University Marching Pirates dissolved to form the Wind Ensemble and the Varsity Band, which were heard in concert throughout the year, and the Pep Band, which performed during bas- ketball games.

Kansas City epitomized happiness for the Men's Glee Club directed by Brett Watson when they were select- ed to perform before the national convention of the American Choral Directors Association.

University Chorale Creates Antiphonal Sound

Dr. Aliapoulis instructs alto section to decrease volume.

Arrangement of the University Cho- rale provided ECU students with a unique experience for the annual Christmas assembly. Divided into two groups in the balcony of Wright Audi- torium, the Chorale created an an- tiphonal sound of alternated singing. This conduction was accomplished under the masterful direction of Dr. Paul A. Aliapoulis assisted by Steve Koch. This achievement was not enough. In February, after endless tir- ing rehearsals, the group demon- strated its talent in the rendition of "Bruckner Mass." Concerned with the more serious aspects of Easter, the Chorale performed a collection of Easter anthems. Spring brought enter- tainment in the form of the Chorale's Pop Concert.

Julian Bond Speaks for Black Americans

"What Next?" was the topic of Ju- lian Bond's speech to the student body in September. Mr. Bond, a rec- ognized spokesman for the young, the liberal, and black American, lec- tured on Nixon's political comeback, the deteriorating conditions of ghetto life, and the diverse views within the Democratic Party. Mr. Bond stated, "The average black American is worse off than when compared to similar whites. Economic conditions are getting worse in the ghettos. We are climbing a molasses mountain dressed in snowshoes while whites take the ski lift to the top." Bond urged black students to become in- volved and to agitate for the solution of certain problems but did not em- phasize violence as a method of polit- ical reform.

Bond emphasizes a point o

concerning ghetto life.

After lecture, Bond elaborates on students' questions regarding racial problems.

Clarke Addresses Science Fiction Enthusiasts

Clarke inside model of "2001" Jupiter spacecraft.

Arthur C. Clarke, author of the book and co-author of the film, "2001: A Space Odyssey," spoke in October on the topic "Life in the Year 2001" to an auditorium filled with science fiction enthusiasts.

Ralph Nader Calls Pollution a Crime

Ralph Nader, "the Consumer Cru- sader," spoke in December to a full house in Wright Auditorium on "Envi- ronmental Hazards: Man-Made and Man-Remedied." His talk covered sanitary issues in the meat-packing and fish industries, dangers of over- exposure from radiation in X-rays, gas pipeline safety, and environmen- tal pollution. "Pollution is another prime national crime," Nader noted. "There is something fundamentally wrong when the same government that allocated $200 million to subsi- dize supersonic flights allows only $46 million to protect the health of the nation. It is a great folly not to al- locate resources and money to com- bat pollution of air, water, and soil."

Price Receives Standing Ovations

A true villain at heart, Vincent Price captured the complete attention of the audience with his February lec- ture, "The Villains Still Pursue Me." Vincent's speech elicited two standing ovations from an enthusiastic crowd. After his lecture, students were able to join Mr. Price in a question-and-an- swer period. Students pounded away with questions concerning his 100 films and his interests in the arts. Al- though he held at least four inter- views with the press and students from the time he arrived at East Caro- lina University, Price seemed to enjoy every minute of his visit. His magnetic personality and his dynamic acting ability provided East Carolina stu- dents a truly unique experience.

Events planned by the Fine Arts Committe centered around the activi- ty in the back room of The Kaleido- scope as members sacrificed their Saturdays to construct an art gallery for the students of East Carolina Uni- versity. "Virgo and Gemini" per- formed in the Union Coffeehouse, and Mike Flynn presented a Fine Arts Committee-sponsored seminar. Stu- dents took home Christmas candles made and sold by FAC members and chalked their unbiased opinions of life, love, and the administration on the pavement between Rawl Building and the Student Union at the commit- tee sponsored "chalk-in." With Max Tabory's poetry, the second Annual Film Festival, and the Artist's Ball in the spring, the FAC remained an en- ergetic presence on campus.

Forum Serves as Workshop for Poets

Vernon Ward, Forum director.

In its eleventh year at East Caro- lina, the Poetry Forum was recog- nized as the oldest poetry association in the state. Under the direction of Vernon Ward, the Forum endeavored to provide a poetry workshop for its members.

Presentations of original composi- tions by members were followed by evaulation and criticism in the

Wednesday night sessions. This year William Stafford, well-known poet, appeared as a guest speaker in the Forum. Public readings and in April a poetry fair sponsored by the North Carolina Arts Council highlighted the Poetry Forum's activities. The Forum also published Tar River Poets, a col- lection of poems by outstanding poets in Eastern North Carolina.

Jenkins Endorses Athletic Program

"If the athletic program is a worthy part of the overall university program, it should be there with dignity and should be com- pletely supported," declared President Leo Jenkins.

Taking a giant step this past year, the university hired an entirely new football coaching staff which rivaled any collegiate staff in the nation. In recruiting efforts for the season, ECU was comparable to such schools as Ohio State, Michigan, and UCLA.

ECU football came to the forefront in 1962 with the entrance of Clarence Stasav- ich as head coach. Since then his record has included three consecutive 9-1 seasons with bowl victories in 1963, 1964, and 1965. Selected NCAA College Coach of the Year in 1964, Stasavich now Athletic Director, claimed a wide reputation in the collegiate football world with a 1 70-64-8 won-lost record. In honor of his accomplish- ments, "Stas" was elected to the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame in the sum- mer of 1970. The election was a first for East Carolina.

Basketball under head coach Tom Quinn flourished in the Southern Conference, and Pirate ospirations progressed. Swimming under Coach Ray Schaff and wrestling under John Welborn proved particularly impressive. The swimming team boasted probably the toughest schedule of any team on campus.

Coach Earl Smith's baseball Pirates as- serted power in the conference. The track team under Coach Bill Carson consistently contended in the Southern Conference.

in Generating Enthusiasm for 'Purple Pride'

Cheerleaders do can-can routine during halftime at N. C. State game in Raleigh.

Cheerleading camp at Pfeiffer Col- lege and selling buttons and badges in support of "Purple Pride" highlight- ed the 1970-71 season for East Caro- lina varsity cheerleaders. The squad, led by Pete Greenspan, cheered at all home football games and most of the away games. Trips during the football season included a plane ride to Tole- do, Ohio, for the Toledo University game.

One of the squad's projects, selling buttons and badges boosting "Purple Pride," enabled them to purchase new uniforms. Holding practice two and three times a week for the entire year proved that cheerleading was not all "peaches and cream," but trips to N. C. State and the Southern Conference basketball tournament made it fun.

McGee Leaves ECU to Coach at Duke

Mike McGee served as head foot- ball coach at East Carolina University for less than a year. Assuming the po- sition January 1, 1970, he resigned December 10, 1970, to accept the same position at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. "It is with a great deal of sadness that we leave East Carolina," explained McGee, "but the opportunity was one that could not be passed up."

As McGee undertook his first year at the helm of a college football team, talk about the future potential of East Carolina football increased. Many fans felt McGee's first year would prove lean as the Pirates pre- pared to compete with such top- ranked teams as Toledo, East Tennes- see, and West Virginia.

The Pirate's first game of the sea- son resulted in a 35-2 trouncing at the hands of powerful Toledo. East Carolina wound up with 1 7 comple- tions in 35 attempts. Both figures eclipsed any passing marks the Pi- rates managed in 1 969.

Pirates Lose Three, Clash With State

Turning their attention to East Ten- nessee, the Pirates found a difficult contest. Although the Pirates and the Buccaneers battled to a stalemate for three quarters, the Buccaneers fired themselves to a 10-0 victory and wid- ened their string of victories to elev- en.

Losing to The Citadel by a score of 31-0, the team suffered through a long ride back from Charleston, South Carolina. Traveling to Canyon, Texas, in October, the McGee-led forces found themselves in the scoring column as they amassed thirty points

against a strong West Texas State team. Thirty points proved insufficient as the Buffaloes finally outscored the Pirates 42-30.

Claiming that "The Big Four is Dead, the Big Five is Alive," the Pi- rates invaded Carter Stadium in Ra- leigh for the purported championship of Eastern North Carolina. Although State came out ahead, the initial meeting of the two teams proved traumatic as a crowd of 28,350 wit- nessed the clash between the two. A rivalry had definitely been estab- lished.

ECU Defeats Furman for First Victory of Season

Defensive lineman Rothrock appears to go through dance routine.

East Carolina experienced a disap- pointing Homecoming. The Salukis of Southern Illinois played the role of spoilers by narrowly defeating the Pi- rates 14-12. Setting a new school rec- ord, Dick Corrada, East Carolina sen- ior flanker, caught fourteen passes during the game.

At the Tobacco Festival the fol- lowing week, only the Richmond Spi- ders seemed to show life as they jumped to a 31-0 halftime lead be- cause of the passing abilities of Char- lie Richards and the mistakes of East Carolina. Richmond capitalized on a pair of pass interceptions, a recov- ered fumble, and an onside kick to flabbergast the Pirates. The final score was 38-12, Richmond.

East Carolina achieved its first vic- tory of the 1970 season as it handed the Furman Paladins defeat in a Hal- loween Day thriller. The ECU defen- sive team stubbornly halted the Pala- dins on a fourth and goal at the Pi- rates' three-yard line with four sec- onds remaining. This time the Pirates came out ahead 7-0.

Wins Over Marshal, Davidson Cap Year

Enthusiasm remained high as the Mountaineers of West Virginia con- fronted the Pirates. Passing game of the Mountaineers was devastating as they racked up 364 yards through the air for a final tally of 281 4.

Falling to the Pirates in the sea- son's last home game, Marshall Uni- versity's ill-fated Thundering Herd managed to score 14 points against 1 7 for the Pirates. Deciding the victo- ry for ECU was a final field goal by Tony Guzzo.

Game number eleven with David- son was undoubtedly ECU's finest of the season. Davidson entered the game hosting the nation's leading re- ceiver and third leading passer. The Pirates amassed 382 yards rushing and grabbed the school single game rushing record. Billy Wallace and Les Strayhorn performed like armored tanks as they compiled a total of 31 2 yards on the ground. The McGee men exploded in the final period for three TD's to win by a final score of 36-1 8.

Signing a four-year contract, Ulmo Shannon "Sonny" Randle took over as head football mentor at ECU Janu- ary 1, 1971. Announcement of Randle's appointment came only five days after Mike McGee resigned to take the same position at Duke Uni- versity. McGee had been at ECU one year. A graduate of the University of Virginia, where he was All-Atlantic Coast Conference and honorable mention All-American, Randle played in four Pro-Bowls.

The former NFL All-Pro receiver for the St. Louis Cardinals came to ECU in 1 969 after his retirement from pro- fessional football. He handled the re- ceivers and helped coordinate the Pi- rate offense.

A native of Washington, D. C, Randle graduated from Fork Union Military College in 1959.

Bucs Conclude 0-5 Under New Coach

In his first season as freshman coach, Henry Trevathan turned in an 0-5 season which could not exactly be considered a banner year. Arriv- ing at East Carolina with one of the best high school coaching records in the country, Trevathan's coaching ca- reer had included three state cham- pionships at Rocky Mount High School and an unprecedented three consecutive state championships at Fike High School in Wilson, North Carolina.

Losses during the year resulted from games with North Carolina State, 26-64; William and Mary, 1 4- 30; Staunton Military, 7-12; The Cita- del, 7-19; and Richmond 0-7.

Promising players from the Baby Pi- rates squad included quarterback Carl Summerell, runningbacks Kenny Moore and Ron Hunt, tight end Clark Davis, offensive guard Dan Killebrew, defensive back Rusty Markland, de- fensive tackle Joe Tkach, and defen- sive end Les Walker.

East Carolina's booters compiled a 2-1-1 record in the Southern Confer- ence despite a rather disappointing 3-7-2 record overall. Wins came against Methodist College, The Cita- del, and Southern Conference cham- pion Davidson. Coach John Lovstedt called the 1970 schedule the "tough- est ever" as the booters confronted Duke, N. C. State, and North Caro- lina for the first time.

"Injuries and ineligibilities to key players hampered us throughout the season and made it difficult to turn in a better record," commented Lov- stedt. One of the injuries came to Pi- rate Co-captain Steve Luquire during the Carolina game. Although the sea- son proved somewhat disappointing, the team was honored when fresh- man Mike McFadden was named run- ner-up player of the year in the Southern Conference. McFadden was East Carolina's highest scorer.

"We lost one starter from last year's team, but we should be strong- er this year," said Lovstedt. "Our schedule will be tougher as we add Jacksonville University and three At- lantic Coast Conference schools."

Cross Country Captures Second in Conference

Compiling a 6-3 record in dual meets, the cross country team claimed sixth place in the state meet, and cap- tured second place in the Southern Conference, while facing the toughest schedule in the school's history.

The spirited Pirate harriers opened the season quickly by taking four of their first five contests with the only loss coming from the defending con- ference champion William and Mary. After two more victories at N. C. State and Old Dominion, it looked as if the Buc runners would breeze to the state meet in November. Two quick losses to a surprising Appalachian State team dispelled any thoughts of an easy state tournament. Disaster struck during the state meet as the harriers ran to a disappointing sixth place. The Pirates recovered quickly however, and grabbed second place in the Southern Conference meet be- hind William and Mary. The meet in- cluded a fourth place individual finish by ECU'S Ed Hereford.

Coach Quinn Seeks Conference Title

Seeking his first Southern Confer- ence title after finishing runner-up to the Davidson Wildcats for the past two years, Head Coach Tom Quinn entered his fifth year at the helm of the 1970-71 basketball team. Quinn's determination had brought ECU basketball from the depths of obscurity in the Southern Conference to a formidable position as a competi- tor with the "Big Four."

Preseason prognostications fa- vored the Pirates to upset the David- son Wildcats who had held a mo- nopoly on conference titles for years. Quinn lightened the load on the Buc's schedule by dropping South Carolina and all the "Big Four" teams in order to improve the Pirate record as well as to give his players every psycho- logical advantage in preparing for the conference tournament.

Wildcats and Pirates wage a fierce battle under the boards

Bucs Stumble in First Encounter

On paper it looked perfect. The Pi- rates could not miss reaching the con- ference finals at least; but from the very beginning of the season, they had problems. George Washington was their first encounter and their first loss, but the game was a squeaker, 79-80. Baptist College provided an uplift the following week for the Pi- rates as the Charleston team was trounced 1 1 9-92. Two days later, the Purple dads met disaster again in their first meeting with Davidson in Charlotte with surprisingly strong Wildcats walking away with the game, 77-61. Thus Tom Quinn con- tenders found themselves fighting to get out of the cellar early in the sea- son as the Bucs waged a see-saw bat- tle with the law of averages.

The taste of victory was sweet especially since the Spiders had spoiled ECU's hopes last year in the conference tourney. Two more conference vic- tories the following week tied the Pi- rates for first place with Davidson, and it could not have been at a more opportune time. Seventy-two hours later, ECU was billed to meet David- son in a game figured to be a pre- view of the conference championship. The Wildcats won, 60-52, despite a valiant effort by the Pirates.

Richmond Spoils Tournament Hopes

Continuing to fight, the Pirates took four more conference games before a final season victory over the Cita- del. The victory boosted the Pirates into third place in the SC competition in a bracket with Richmond, the darkhorse a year ago.

ECU met its Waterloo against Rich- mond on tournament opening night in Charlotte. Both teams played below par, but the Spider's center canned a turn-around jump shot at the buzzer for the 69-67 Richmond victory.

A season record of 1 3 wins com- pared to 12 defeats seemed unbelie- vable before the season, but it proved a reality by season's end. Pi- rate Jim Gregory capped a brilliant four-year career on the hardcourt of Minges Coliseum by being voted run- ner-up for the All-Conference team and runner-up in league scoring with an 18.3 average. Rebounding leader for the conference, Gregory estab- lished a three-year varsity scoring rec- ord of 1,193 points, a new school record.

Ferner, 1958-59 captain of the LaSalle College bas- ketball team also joined the Pirate coaching staff as an assistant coach.

The Bucs opened the season abruptly in Greensboro against Duke and were smothered 73-52, but the loss did not discourage them as they were victors in the next 10 of 11 con- tests. Winning a close game against Davidson, the Bucs rallied from be- hind to nip the Wildcats 89-87. Rich- mond fell to the Bucs handily on two occasions by the scores, 72-61 and 84-65.

Aquabucs Seize Sixth Straight SC Championship

A sixth consecutive Southern Con- ference championship and a 15th place berth in the NCAA Eastern Championship made 1970-71 one of the finest seasons for ECU's Aqua- bucs. Included on the Pirate's roster, one of the toughest ever, were Penn State, Maryland, N.C. State, Army, Florida State, Catholic, and North Carolina. The Pirates swam to second place in the Penn State relays early in the season.

After losing to N.C. State, the Aquabucs barely lost to Army by .08 of a second in the final event, with 51.62 for Army. Traveling to Florida over Christmas proved disappointing as the Bucs suffered narrow losses to Florida State, 56-57, and to South Florida, 54-59 after a disputed call over an illegal turn.

Swimming to their sixth straight conference championship, the Pirates won 12 of 17 events, a school rec- ord, and piled up 658 points, com- pared to William and Mary's three events won and 481 .5 points. Half of the ECU triumphs were registered by sophomore Wayne Norris and junior Jim Griffin. Each successfully defend- ed his title in three events.

ECU, Ithaca Split Two-Game Series

Ithaca journeyed to Pirateland for a two-game series early in the season and the best the Bucs could manage was another split. ECU took the first game behind the pitching of Hasting, 3-0 and relinquished the second game by 5-7. A 5-4 lead in the sec- ond game by the Pirates was insuffi- cient to stave off Ithaca as it scored three runs in the seventh.

Nationally-ranked Dartmouth Col- lege proved a heavy burden for the Pirate nine as it romped to an 11 -0 victory. The loss dropped the Pirates to 2-3 for the year and handed Hast- ings his first loss of the year.

Pirates Top UNC; Hold 9-14 Overall

One of the delightful games of the season came against the Tar Heels of North Carolina. The Pirates struck early scoring four runs in the second inning. UNC battled back to score three times in the fifth and then took a 6-4 lead with three more runs in the seventh. Mike Aldridge made his debut for the afternoon with a home run in the bottom of the seventh. Three more runs were scored before the day ended making it a comforting 10-6 victory. The game left the Pi- rates with a 9-14 overall record and a 4-5 in the conference.

Dedication of Harrington Field, a new stadium honoring Milton Harring- ton, president of Leggett and Myers, Inc., prevented the season from be- coming a total loss. Dedication cere- monies were conducted May 9, with Duke squaring off with the Pirates. Both teams battled for eight innings before the TJucs took charge by scor- ing eight runs and turning the game into a romp. The final tally of 10-2 fa- vored the Pirates.

ECU placed second in the WTVD State Meet in Durham and qualified for more events than any school com- peting. The Bucs grabbed second dur- ing the season in a meet with N. C. State, West Virginia, and West Ches- ter with a total of 67 points against West Chester's 71.

Returning three lettermen from last year's squad, the golf team added a couple of first year men to record 10 wins to two defeats in regular season matches and a Southern Conference championship. Returning lettermen from 1970 were Ray Sharpe, Phil Wallace, and Ron Pinner. Sharpe, a senior, will be the only nonreturnee among the starters from this year's championship squad.

The Pirate drivers have captured the Southern Championship twice in the last three years. This year's cham- pionship witnessed a 1 3 stroke lead after first round action for the Pirates, but it was all they could do to stave off a Furman rally in the second round before winning by one stroke.

Crew Opens Season With 'Major Upset' Over VCU

Cockswain barks out orders before the Citadel crew meet.

Coach Terry Chalk entered the Pi- rate Crew team in one of the team's toughest schedules this year. Crew, an established sport at ECU, com- peted with such opponents as Notre Dame, North Carolina, and Virginia and competed in the Grimaldi Cup, the Southern Regatta and Dad Vail Regatta in Philadelphia. Opening the season, the Pirates accomplished what Chalk referred to as a "major upset" with a victory in the VCU Re- gatta. The paddlemen overcame Vir- ginia, considered one of the top crew teams in the nation at the time.

Later, the Pirates were defeated when the Citadel Bulldogs, putting the pressure on in the last 100 yards, nosed out a victory by a length.

Stickmen Battle Seasoned Teams

Expanding the schedule this year from eight games to ten games did not prove an asset for the stickmen under Coach John Lovestedt. Playing such teams as Ohio Wesleyan, Duke, North Carolina, Maryland, and N. C. State seemed too much of a test for a lacrosse team still in its infancy as last year was the Pirates' first venture into varsity lacrosse competition.

Finishing with a 4-7 record, the stickmen opened the season against Ohio Wesleyan and proved they could score as they bombarded the goal for six points only to see Ohio Wesleyan hit on ten goals. The biggest win of the season came against Virginia Tech at mid-season with the Pirates claiming an 11-5 de- cision. Eric Schandelmeier led the Bucs, scoring three goals and having two assists.

Serving as an outlet for various modes of student expression, campus organizations constituted a highly rel- evant and viable means of channeling student activity. On East Carolina's campus, some sixty religious, military, athletic, and academic organizations captured the attention and energy of several thousand students. These or- ganizations allowed students to ex- plore a variety of subjects. Encourag- ing members to seek answers to un- solved and often complex questions, campus organizations stimulated cre- ativity, activity, and expression.

Pirateers Dance During Halftime

One of the most recent additions to athletic events this year was the East Carolina Pirateers, a drill team and pom-pom dance group. Conceived last year when the coaching staff re- quested entertainment in addition to the regular cheerleading squad, the Pirateers were organized to perform dance routines during halftime at bas- ketball games. Plans were projected for the group to entertain during foot- ball halftime activities next year.

Selected on the basis of interviews by Athletic Director Clarence Stasa- vitch, assistant basketball coach Harry Brown, Chief Pirateer Joey Hor- ton, and various cheerleaders, the squad of nine girls consisted of fresh- men, sophomores, and juniors.

Although the newly organized group was unable to undertake any service projects during 1971, the members planned to expand next year and carry out various fund-rais- ing programs. Daily rehearsals kept the group in a continuous state of readiness for their halftime perform- ances.

Fossil hunt at Texas-Gulf Sulfur i and a canoe trip down the Tar River were only two of the outings which in- creased both interest and knowledge in biological study for members of the Biology Club. Members became bet- ter acquainted at a spaghetti supper in the fall and began planning the year's excursions. These plans in- cluded a day trip to Lake Mattamus- keet and weekend camping trips ir, the spring to Manteo and Hanging Rock National Park. Specimens col- lected on trips were studied by the club and faculty members from the Biology department. These activities offered the student a chance to work on his own and advance beyond classroom work.

Design Associates Redesign N. C. State Patrol Badge

Billy Charping, Rich Griendlen, and Margaret Donharl discuss design for a brochure.

Design Associates of ECU provided a small commercial art agency in 1971 for the Greenville area. Through their work in this capacity, members, all commercial art majors, gained valuable training and experi- ence. Although some work was com- pleted for clients not associated with the university, most jobs were univer- sity-connected. Some results of the group's efforts were brochures de- scribing the Artist's Series, the Sum- mer Theater, and the drama depart- ment. Posters for the seminar on Human Sexuality and Abortion and layout work for the shopper's guide, the Advocat, were additional group projects. The club lettered signs, de- signed a cover for the mental retarda- tion bulletin and redesigned the North Carolina State Patrol badge. Fees were charged for some jobs with 10% of each person's fee collection going to the club treasury to purchase such items as a subscription to Graph- ics, an international art magazine.

Resolved: That the Federal Govern- ment should adopt a program of com- pulsory wage and price controls. This topic was the subject of debate as the Debate Union traveled from Philadel- phia to New Orleans to compete with university teams. Hours were spent daily in research of subject matter and newspapers for daily articles per- taining to the subject. Accumulated information was sorted, compiled, and reviewed each Thursday night.

The seven members of the Debate Union attended six tournaments: one each in Philadelphia, Pa., Gainsville, Fla., New Orleans, La., Tallahassee, Fla., and Providence, R. I., during fall and winter quarter. Limited funds made it necessary to drive on the weekend trips since some destina- tions were as much as twenty-two hours away.

Discussing plans for next debate are Kay Carwile, Albert Pertalion (adviser), Nate Weavil, Pat Meades, and Steve Polifko.

Male dormitory residents ex- pressed greater interest in the Men's Residence Council this year than ever before as a result of the Council's ef- forts to ensure visitation rights. Fol- lowing the enthusiastic support shown at a January MRC rally and a referen- dum concerning open dormitories, the Council challenged the proposal of President Jenkin's ad-hoc committee by opening men's dormitories to women visitors on a seven-day-a- week basis. In conjunction with the administration, the Council furnished a new pool table, ping-pong tables, and color television sets for Jones, Belk, and Tyler dormitories and lights for the tennis and volleyball courts. Entertainment was also provided by the Council in the form of several MRC-WRC "Mixers" and "Field Day." Various committees investi- gated possibilities for improvements of the dormitories and cafeteria. Aid- ing the community, the MRC spon- sored a "Traffic Stop" in December.

Deviating from the regular bi- monthly meetings which were plagued by non-participation, the Ex- ecutive Board of Student National Education Association adopted a poli- cy of active involvement of members and projects of beneficial value. Fall quarter, the East Carolina chapter hosted the Eastern Coastal Regional Conference attended by most schools east of Raleigh. SNEA members or- ganized procedures for implementing a long-needed Curriculum Lab for all education students and created a bulletin board display in the Student Union for American Education Week. Members also were selected to serve on the Curriculum Planning Commit- tee for the School of Education. Mid- way the year, the chapter presented Dr. Douglas Jones, Dean of the School of Education, an Outstanding Service and Friendship award. Plans for the Spring featured a day-long Field Day for high school future teachers, a spaghetti social, and as- sistance to local service organizations for fund-raising projects.

Twenty-five students broadcasted music and news twenty-four hours each day, seven days a week on 570 WECU. WECU, one of the best equipped stations in the area, contin- ued to broadcast "Solid Gold Spec tacular" and "Open Mike," this year. Located in Joyner library, WECU of- fices underwent several improve- ments. A new newsroom was added to enable the staff to increase service, and record facilities were expanded. Efforts were directed toward the pur- chase of an automatic system which would extend the "Solid Gold Spec- tacular" to six hours per night. Sever- al school functions, such as pep rallies, were broadcasted for the ben- efit of those unable to attend them. WECU provided entertainment and information for the ECU campus while giving the staff valuable experience in broadcasting.

WRC Hears Needs Of Women Students

"The Old Woman in the Shoe" was the theme of the Homecoming float for the Woman's Residence Council. To meet demands and to offer its services to all women stu- dents, the WRC placed a "Grump Box" in the University Union for stu- dents to place suggestions and com- plaints. Many committees were formed to work on self-limiting hours, better living conditions, and dormito- ry rules.

Working jointly on many projects, the Women's Residence Council and the Men's Residence Council spon- sored a mixer at "The Id" featuring "Jamie" and a Christmas dance at Memorial Gymnasium.

Democrats Elect Sonny McLawhorn President

Professor Mansour Bejaoui, native of Tunisia and guest speaker, is introduced by Beth Cayton, president.

Operating under a new name, the ECU College Democrats Club strived this year to reorganize locally as well as work for new party goals on the state and national level. To build a strong foundation for the 1 972 elec- tions, members lobbied in March for ecology bills and the right of eight- een-year-old citizens to vote in na- tional elections.

Sonny McLawhorn, an ECUCDC past president and local member, was elected president of the state organi- zation; and Bruce Savage, also a member of ECUCDC, was elected State Treasurer. Beth Cayton was ap- pointed by Gov. Scott for a four year term on the Recreation Committee under the Department of Local Af- fairs.

College Democrats participated in Homecoming by constructing a float and sponsoring a Homacoming repre- sentative. Staging a spaghetti dinner February 1, the group used proceeds to supplement delegate expenses.

Campus religious organizations seemed to be seeking a new direction and broader goals in 1971. Weekly dinner meetings, picnics, and other activities provided fellowship and a source of Christian identity; but the true spirit of religious organizations emphasized more than these abstract qualities. Students participated in reli- gious organizations on campus to find a better way of life; they yearned to reach out and help those who needed them; and they wanted to exist as a manifestation of God's love for man. Religious-oriented groups, such as "The Way" and REAL, proj- ected their love for man out of a spir- itual context. REAL, for instance, was established to help students who were in trouble with drugs, school, or per- sonal problems. In 1971, religious or- ganizations promoted brotherhood and demonstrated the need for love among men.

Conducting services in various churches in Greenville was one way in which members of King Youth Fel- lowship expressed their desire to ex- emplify Christian ideals in daily con- duct. Programs of both work and en- tertainment encouraged group partici- pation in many varied areas. The group sponsored an orphan in India, distributed religious tracts in Green- ville, and promoted bowling, hay- rides, and caroling. Highlighting the year was a spring trip to Camp Caro- line and the annual Homecoming Banquet. Members met weekly for fel- lowship at the First Pentecostal Holi- ness Church in Greenville.

GREEKS











Greeks Have a Time and Place on University Campus

Each fraternity and sorority experi- enced individual and separate bonds of friendship and fellowship, yet all members of the total Greek communi- ty on campus found a common unify ing link as they joined to engage in philanthropic projects. Throughout the year, East Carolina Greeks hosted parties for underprivileged children, donated blood to the Red Cross, and collected money for the Wichita State and Marshall University Memorial Funds. Greeks came together for fun, athletic competition, and relaxation throughout the year as they spon- sored and participated in All-Sing, Sigma Chi Spring Thing, Phi Tau Woman Haters' Week, and IFC Weekend.

East Carolina Greeks exhibited more than passing concern for cam- pus events and charitable organiza- tions. They endeavored to strengthen the university community through campus involvement. In a period when the Greek system had been challenged and questioned, East Car- olina's sororities and fraternities at- tempted to prove that there were a time and place for Greeks.

Sorority girls watch skit performances as they nervously await their turn.

Serenades, cook-outs, water bal- loon fights, and hilarious skits contrib- uted to the success of Sigma Chi Del- ta's first annual "Spring Thing." Re- placing the traditional "Derby Day," the event emphasized sorority skits rather than competitive field events. For an entire week in March, East Carolina's eight sororities joined to compete for various honors and titles. Climaxing the week's activities were the skits and beauty contest on Friday night. On Saturday night, a dance featuring the "Staten Island Ferry" honored the sororities. Weird cos- tumes, ingenious skits, and nervous girls parading before a panel of judges set the stage for an enter- taining occasion. Represented by Camille Rockett, Chi Omega claimed the title of "Miss Venus." Sigma Sigma Sigma was honored as its rep- resentative, Judy Brewer, was select- ed "Miss Spring Thing." Alpha Xi Del- ta's efforts proved worthwhile when it captured the Spirit Trophy. Chi Omegas again realized success when they received the Sigma Chi Delta Spring Thing Trophy.

'Woman Haters' Week Heralds Homecoming Events

Phi Taus load up with shaving cream to battle with sororities.

Through the efforts of Phi Kappa Tau, Woman Haters' Week stimu- lated spirit for Homecoming. The an- nual event dominated campus activi- ties during the week preceding Home- coming and entertained the student body.

Mock attacks on sorority houses, relentless raids on the Phi Tau house, and onslaughts of eggs, flour, mud, and ice were typical of woman Haters' Week. Unshaven Phi Taus were seen desperately trying to pre- vent sorority women from stealing their name tags. For those unfortu- nate men who lost their tags or were reported talking to a coed were herd- ed into a makeshift wooden cage on the mall. Entrapped Phi Taus then be- came targets for anything the co-eds could throw.

Kissing booth occupied by sorority girls adds to IFC carnival.

Obstacle races, a carnival, and a skit night dominated activities of the 1971 IFC Greek Week. Fraternities and sororities came together in May to participate in vari- ous track and field events and to compete for honors. Pi Kappa Phi stamina and abil- ity proved unbeatable as the fraternity walked off the field with top honors.

For the second consecutive year, the IFC encouraged fraternities to construct booths on the mall for the carnival. An enthusiastic atmosphere prevailed as Greek originality provided a kissing booth, a dunking booth, and a "beer can throw."

During the week, Greeks assembled in Wright Auditorium to watch outlandish skits. Judges awarded first place honors to Kappa Sigma for its amusing portrayal of "Laugh-In."

At the Awards Banquet, Kappa Sigma received Alpha Xi Delta's Outstanding Fra- ternity Award, and Alpha Phis won Pi Kappa Phi's Outstanding Sorority Award. Susan Rothrock, Sigma Chi Delta sweet heart, was named IFC Queen.

Greek Week activities climaxed during the weekend as "Bill Deal and the Ron- dells" presented a concert at the Music Factory Friday night. Mosier's farm was the scene for entertainment by the "Brooklyn Bridge" and "Wildfire" Saturday.

Hosting the event, the sisters of Alpha Xi Delta, attired in red and white, sang to the tune of "What the World Needs Now." Top honors in sorority competition went to the Alpha Phis as they presented a skit entitled "What the World Needs Now Is Conservation," a satire on pollution. The Chi Omegas sang a medley of patriotic songs and cap- tured second-place honors. The Lambda Chis were judged as having the best performance in the fraternity division with their presentation of "My Name Is War" and "Someday." "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?" and "With a Little Help From My Friends" gave the Phi Taus a second-place berth in the fraternity competition.

Panhellenic Workshop Uses 'Go Greek' for Fall Rush

Panhellenic Council members hear rules for rush week.

Edwina Lee, president, presides at business session.

Vicki Lemmonds voices a proposal as other members listen with interest.

Fall formal rush, a new concept, re- quired much of the Panhellenic Coun- cil's time and energy this year. Plans for changing formal rush dates began last spring when Mrs. Frank Alexan- der, national Panhellenic Council ad- viser, visited the campus and organ- ized a two-day workshop for the sororities on campus. "Go Greek," a totally new approach for rush, was the major result of the workshop. In the fall, the Panhellenic Council, under the direction of president Edwi- na Lee, supervised a massive publicity campaign which encouraged fresh-

man women to pledge one of the eight campus sororities. Upon the completion of rush activities, the Pan- hellenic Council joined the IFC for a Greek dance in February. Helping various local and national groups, the sororities collected gum wrappers for UNESCO, added spirit at basketball games during "Noise Night," and sponsored a Korean orphan. After a year of feverish activity, East Caroli- na's Panhellenic Council was invited to join the Southeastern Panhellenic Council.

New Black Fraternity Joins Interfraternity Council

Interfraternity Council representatives listen to agenda at business session.

One of the most exciting changes affecting the Interfraternity Council in 1971 was the addition of Alpha Phi Alpha, East Carolina's first black so- cial fraternity. Other innovations in- cluded efforts to improve scholarship, membership, and the image of the twelve fraternities on campus.

Encouraging fraternities to partici- pate in various philanthropic activi- ties, the IFC supported the Red Cross blood drive and monetary collections for the Heart Fund and Easter Seals campaign. East Carolina's fraternal system also raised money for the Greenville . oy's Club and solicited over $1000 for UNICEF.

Members prepare to vote on proposal at meeting.

In cooperation with the Panhellenic Council, the IFC presented during win- ter quarter a dance for all Greeks. In May, the annual Greek Week fea tured a variety of entertainment. Sponsored by the IFC, the event in- cluded a skit night, a carnival on the mall, and an awards banquet. High- lighting Greek Week were appear ances by the Brooklyn Bridge, Bill Deal and the Rondells, and Wildfire.

Convocation Invites Coeds to Join Sororities

Alpha Phi sorority displays various aspects of Greek life to prospective rushees Initiating a new rush system, East Carolina sororities began to prepare for formal rush during fall quarter and to persuade co-eds to "Go- Greek." Freshmen, sophomores, and upperclassmen crowded into Wright Auditorium to learn more about for- mal rush and listen to East Carolina's eight sororities explain sorority life.

Dean of Women, Miss Carolyn Ful- ghum, spoke on rush rules; and Pan- hellenic Council President Edwina Lee spoke on sorority life. Speeches were followed by a skit presented by two members of each sorority and portraying co-eds deciding whether to pledge a sorority. Girls attending convocation then had an opportunity to view different sorority displays and enjoy refreshments as they mingled with East Carolina's Greeks.

Trying to decide which sorority to pledge, the girls left convocation con- fused, excited, and ready to begin formal rush.

Alpha Phi Omega decided to eliminate the annual White Ball Dance this year and combine the event with Carousel Weekend. Instead of sponsoring a dance, APO con- centrated on donations to the Pitt County Crippled Children's Association. Selection of the queen was determined by penny votes.

Sponsored by various campus organiza tions, twenty-six ECU contestants vied for the title of the 1971 White Ball Queen. Sponsored by Kappa Sigma fraternity, Be- linda Wright received the crown from Becky Lackey, 1970 White Ball Queen.

Alpha Phis Support Athletic Teams

Upholding the Alpha Phi tradition, the sisterhood became actively in- volved in many phases of campus life throughout the year. Intending to voice their^pinions in student affairs, "SrSTSrs successfully achieved member- ship on various SGA committees and claimed positions on the Fountain- head staff. Actively supporting East Carolina's athletic teams, the "Phis" attended pep rallies, organized a Pom Pom squad, and sponsored swimming meets.

Panty raids, candlelight ceremo- nies, and socials highlighted the year. Alpha Phis proudly claimed the title

of Summer School Queen when Penny Lassister was crowned in Au- gust.

Believing that positive contributions to the community benefited charity, Alpha Phi donated blood for the AFROTC Blood Drive and sold heart- shaped suckers for its national philan- thropy, the Cardiac Aid.

"Go Greek," this year's Panhellen- ic motto for rush, proved a battle cry for Alpha Phis. Encouraging closer relationships among Greeks, the sis- terhood joined the neighboring TKE's to build a float for the October Homecoming parade.

Delta Zeltas Capture First Place in Sorority Homecoming Decorations.

With a "Beetle Bailey" theme, the Delta Zetas excitedly claimed first place in sorority competition in house ldecorations for Homecoming in Octo- ber. This achievement signaled the first of many accomplishments for Delta Zeta during the year. \ Continuous activity characterized the DZ's as they endured surprise vis- its;by the Phi Taus during Woman Ha- tens Week, woke l/p to a paper- rolled lawn, and "borrowed" trophies from various fraternity hous- es.

Although tired and sore from raid- ing fraternities, the sisters experi- enced the pride of success as they

captured top honors in intramural vol- leyball competition. Concerned with the enactment of student rules, two sisters were elected to the Women's Judiciary; one was seated in the legis- lature; and another was appointed to serve on the Women's Honor Council. Responding to the need for communi- cation of Greek news, Kay Tyndall accepted the position of Greek Editor of the Fountainhead. Representing Delta Zeta in other campus activities, sisters served as cheerleaders and participated in numerous professional fraternities. Clirn<wing an eventful year, the Delta Zetas in the spring cel- ebrated Founder's Day.

Sigma Beauties Reign Throughout State

Honors came naturally for the Sig- mas this year. Among the beauty titles claimed by Sigmas were Miss Wilson, Miss North Carolina Apple ueen, and Miss Tri-Cities. Repre enting the university, Dale Emory was crowned Miss Venus of Sigma Chi Derby Day; and Susan Stamps was named first runner-up for Home- coming Queen in October.

Sigmas also became involved in campus activities: Senior class vice- president, SGA legislature positions, and Elections Committee membership. Between raids, socials, and sere- nades, the sisters managed to find

time for a clean-up day with the Pi Kappa Phis and a pledge exchange with the Kappa Alphas. In the fpring, "prime sun time" was utilized at pool parties. I

In its annual philanthropic project, the sorority sold candy for the Robbie Page Memorial Fund. This year the Sigma alumnae chapter received its charter that enabled it to help the sis- ters further the goals of the sorority.

in the spirit of true sisterhood, Sig- mas took time out from their busy schedule to honor their pledges with a formal pledge dance featuring the "Black and Blue."

Fraternity Sweethearts

Green Springs Park provided an appropriate setting for photograph- ing the 1970-1971 fraternity sweet- hearts. These girls represented the fraternities as they served as host- esses during rush and provided a feminine touch around the fraternity houses.

Often found in less glamourous set- tings, the sweethearts always gave a helping hand when a quick clean-up was needed or dirty dishes piled up. Whether in formals or jeans, they gave that extra something that made them special to the brothers.

Alpha Phi Omega Hosts Sectional Conference Here

Recognized as the campus service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega under- took several projects in an effort to help the campus and the community. Each year during February, the broth- erhood sponsors a campus-wide for- mal dance to gather funds for the Pitt County Crippled Children's Associa- tion. Because the White Ball dance re- quired extensive funds for production, Alpha Phi Omega abandoned the dance in 1971 and contributed to the Association the total amount of money collected.

Continuing its efforts to provide community service, the fraternity served as judges and administrative assistants for a Boy Scout Camporee in Washington, North Carolina. Later the brothers helped the Scouts stage

their annual Jamboree in Memorial Gymnasium. The brotherhood also provided much needed recreation for Greenville youth by constructing two obstacle courses at Elm Street Park.

Whenever emergencies arose re- quiring large sums of money, Alpha Phi Omega continued to expand its time and effort to help. Brothers solic- ited funds for Kenneth Willard, a Greenville child who desperately needed open-heart surgery to over- come a congenital heart defect, and collected money for the Wichita State and Marshall University Memorial Funds. The Tuberculosis and Arthritis Fund campaigns also elicited support from the fraternity.

During the Christmas season, the brotherhood presented a seven-foot

stocking filled with toys and candy to the homeless children in the Oddfel- low Orphanage in Goldsboro.

Honors achieved during the year included the SGA Spirit Award and the undefeated fraternity football championship of 1970. The brothers were especially proud when they were selected in November to host the Alpha Phi Omega Sectional Con- ference. North Carolina chapters of the fraternity gathered on the East Carolina campus to discuss improve- ments, service projects, and ways to aid the state and the nation. George Georghiou, the fraternity pledgemas- ter, declared, "The ultimate goal of every Alpha Phi Omega brother is the betterment of true brotherhood and the sincere aid of his fellowmJh.*' " *

Homecoming Float Wins First Place

Formed only two years ago, Delta Sigma Phi continued to progress in the campus fraternal community. De- voting their attention to formal rush in September, the brothers completed a successful campaign to increase their membership. Later in fall quarter the brothers co-sponsored with Alpha Omicron Pi a first place float for homecoming. To celebrate its achievement, the fraternity traveled to the Brentwood Lodge in Washing ton, North Carolina, for a formal din- ner-dance.

Always ready to help in any way

assible, Delta Sigma Phi solicited funds for UNICEF and the Thundering Herd Memorial Fund. Throughout the year the brotherhood assisted the Greenville Boy's Club with club proj- ects. Winter quarter, Delta Sigs sold Christmas seals and in the spring par- ticipated in the ROTC March-a-thon for the March of Dimes campaign.

On campus, the brotherhood em- phasized-extracurricular activity as members served on the Faculty Sen- ate Advisory Committee, Phi Sigma Pi honor fraternity, Alpha Beta Alpha, and the WECU radio staff.

KA Tops Statewide Donations for Cerebral Palsy Fund

Surprise raids on the Alpha Delta Pi sorority house, ni srous socials, and sweetheart ser^J es provided a wide spectrum of ^M y for Kappa Alpha. In the fall<H brotherhood honored their advise^^Jvid Williams Pierce, by treating him to a dinner at the Beef Barn and proclaiming an "Ovid Pierce Day." Known to the KA's I "Doc," Mr. Pierce actively supported the fraternity and partici- patedfn most of the frat< rnity's activi- ties. V

Later in the quarter, le KA's trav- eled to "Doc's" plantation located outside of Enfield, North Carolina, for "Fall Campaigns." Because the fra- ternity was founded in the Southern tradition, "Fall Campaigns" ena the brothers and pledges to recrg battle scenes from the Civil War

Homecoming was the final major activity of fall quarter. Kappa Alpha was particularly pleased when its can- didate for Homecoming queen was selected first runner-up.

Two of the fraternity's most impor- tant social functions were Convivium and Old South. Celebrating the anni- versary of Robert E. Lee's birth and the founding of Gamma Rho chapter, East Carolina KA's hosted a cocktail party at the Tar River Estates and staged a banquet at the Candlewick Inn. Highlighting Convivium was a party at the newly redecorated party room on Fifth Street.

Old Sooth, recognized by the KA's as the most important social event of the year, provided a chance for the brothers and their dates to bring back

the past. Traveling to the Virginia coast spring quarter, the brothers dressed in Confederate uniforms and honored their dates, who were attired in antebellum dress, with a dance. In a special ceremony bids to Old South wer distributed at the dance to the dates of the brothers.

Active in service affairs as wi I as in social functions, Kappa Alpha re- ceived statewide recognition spring jrwhen brothers collected 1.00 for the United Cerebal Palsy Fund Telethon. No other group or individual in North Carolina con- tributed in excess of that a viding service on campjs, th ers represented day stbde SGA legislature and partici ated on various campus committees.






Dean Mallory Addresses Kappa Sigs at Annual Parents Day

Entertainment by "The Embers" in September marked the first combo party of the year for Kappa Sigma. Staged for formal rush ac- tivities, the party helped the frater- nity obtain twenty-three new pledges fall quarter. In October, a majority of the new brotherhood traveled to Raleigh for the East Carolina-N. C. State football game. Kappa Sigs showed they were "fired up" for the game. Homecoming proved successful this year as the fraternity captured of two Spirit Awards and a second,'' place berth in Greek house decora- tions.

Winter quarter activities include a formal dinner-dance recognizing Founder's Day with guest speaker Robert J. Mahoney, Executive Di- rector of the national office. After the dinner, the fraternity presented interfraternity awards to brothers outstanding in leadership, scholar- ship, and intramurals. Other social functions during the quarter were a brother-pledge Christmas party and a seasonal celebration for the Greenville Boy's Club. Parent's Day in January was marked by a cocktail party with entertainment by the Dave McCracken jazz trio. Dean of Men James Mallory ad- dressed the brothers and their par- ents. Honoring Belinda Wright, their sweetheart, the brothers host- ed in February the annual Sweet- heart Dance in the spacious party room at the fraternity house on Tenth Street.

Election of new officers and beach weekend highlighted spring quarter. In May the fraternity rent- ed a bus to transport the brothers, pledges, and their dates to the site of the IFC Greek Week-end. A champagne breakfast and a party on the Pamlico River provided Greek Week entertainment.

AXA Takes Top Honors in All-Si Incorporates New 'Help Week' Policy

Incorporating a new fraternity poli- cy kicked off the 1970-1971 year for Lambda Chi Alpha as the brothers followed the directions of national of- ficials to abolish the title of pledge and replace it with a new designa- tion, associate member. Other ^changes included replacing "Hell Week" with "Help Week" so that the new associate members would under- stand the true meaning of brother- hood. House duties were assigned to brothers as well as to associate mem bers during the year.

Major innovations around the house included the acquisition of new furniture and redecoration of the party room to brighten fall combo and rush parties. Social events for the first-place award in the

October for a combo party at the American Legion Hut. Other social ac- tivities during the year included a bonfire-pond party in the country andi' a cookout with the women of New Poorm "L."

As sponsors of the Lambda Chi Alpha Field Day, the fraternity added a new feature to the events this year -- the "Tricycle '5007'

Annual Phi Tau Woman Haters' Week

Highlights Pre-Homecoming Festivities

With a maximum output of e 1 and organized rush-ng tedpniquaH Phi Kappa Tau swept the cdmpus f^P quarter during formal riih. a s M claimed the largest pledge class of a social fraternities. All twenty-five pledges figured prominently in the success of Woman Hater's Week in October. Determined to instill Horr coming spirit, the brothers, pledge and social affiliates carried put the Woman Hater's theme as thel relent- lessly attacked sororities an dk kid- napped the sisters. The sororities re- ciprocated, however, and managed to raid the Phi Tau house during a week of mud baths, egg throwing, and other unsavory concoctions. When the week of activities was com- pleted, the Phi Taus selected Chi Omega to receive the trophy for the continuous participation.

Winter quarter activities included Mm Brother-Pledge banquet at the Can-,; dlewick Inn in December followed by

gag-gift Christmas party at the house. In February, Phi Kappa Tau at- tempted to perpetuate its winning tra- dition during the Alpha XI Delta Greek All-Sing. Phi Taus retired the raternit division for the last three consecutive years.

Participation in student affairs ex- emplified the fraternity's concern for problems affecting students. Brothers served as Interfraternity Council Trea- surer, IFC Judiciary member, SGA Honor Council member, and 1971 Buccaneer business manager. Phi Kappa Tau also claimed a brother in- cluded in the National Student Regis- ter.

Pinball games in the basement, so- cials, and college parties dominated spring quartern rtivities. A major f' a ture of the quarter was the annual beach weekend at the John Yancey hotel in Atlantic Beach, highlighted by the selection of Phi Tau sweetheart, Dede Clegg.

PIKAS Welcome New Coeds With Water

Distinguished as East Carolina's First social fraternity, Pi Kappa Alpha gained recognition as an official "welcoming" committee for freshman women. Located near the girl's dormi- tories on Fifth Street, the men in "The Castle" surprised unsuspecting fresh- men with water balloons and a gro- tesque mummy disguise. Sororities on Fifth Street failed to escape the noto- rious Pikas. Sigmas were constantly "losing" their porch furniture, and Delta Zetas became accustomed to midnight raids" on the house.

Formal rush and socials with vari- ous sororities initiated a year of many activities for the Pikas. Highlighting fall quarter was Homecoming which entailed a jazz trio and numerous

cocktail and combo parties at the house. For their house decorations, Pikas impressed the student body and visiting alumni with a huge portrayal of comical cartoon characters.

Winter quarter brought Christmas celebrations. Pledges treated the brotherhood to the traditional Christ- mas party which included a reversal of pledge-brothers roles.

In addition to their social activities, Pi Kappa Alpha contributed their time and effort to collect money for UNICEF, the Tuberculosis campaign, and the Heart Fund.

Traveling to the beach during spring quarter, the brotherhood ended the year by celebrating Pika Dream Girl beach weekend.






Phi Kappa Phis Exchange Old Fraternity House for New,

Innovate Little SisTer' Program from Social Sororities

Moving from their Fifth Street quar- ters to more spacious surroundings on Hooker Road, Pi Kappa Phi spent most of fall quarter becoming accus- tomed to its new house. Because of a small lake in front of the new house, fall quarter bonfire parties proved ideal. As winter weather approached, the brothers often gathered with dates in their basement party room amid contemporary decorations. Highlighting fall quarter was the an- nual "Commode Bowl" football

game and parade. Traveling through the downtown area of Greenville, the caravan of Pi Kaps displayed their most "beautiful" brother who was se- lected as Commode Bowl Queen. Hayrides, wine and cheese parties, and a "1950 Sock Hop" encouraged the brothers to remain in Greenville for fall weekends. More formal occa- sions occurred winter and spring quarter when the fraternity hosted Founder's Day and Rose Ball beach weekend.

Innovations characterized the Pi Kaps in 1971 as the Pi Kappa Phi elit- tle sisters" program was introduced fall quarter. Adding a feminine touch to predominately male surroundings, the "little sisters" helped with house clean-up and preparations for parties and rush functions.

Another major accomplishment in 1971 was the publication and cam- pus-wide availability of "The Greek Bells," Pi Kappa Phi's guide to the ECU sorority woman.'

Receives IFC Pledge Class Award

Significant honors distinguished Sigma Chi Delta this year as they were named recipients of the East Carolina University Board of Trustees Service Award and the IFC Outstand- ing Formal Pledge Class Award.

Sigma Chi's epitomized the con- cept of service when they joined Kappa Delta in December and trav- eled to the Kennedy Home, a private orphanage in Kinston, North Caro- lina, to entertain orphans with a Christmas party. In January, parent's weekend at the Candlewick Inn and a skiing excursion to Beech Mountain required much effort and time on be- half of the brotherhood. Derby

Week, six days of competitive field events climaxed by a dance at the American Legion Hut focused atten- tion on the sororities. Finally, the Sigma Chi's ended the year in May with their annual trek to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, for Beach Weekend.

Participation in community charity projects was demonstrated when the brothers solicited funds for UNICEF and the Heart Fund. Representation in campus organizations expanded the fraternity's scope of activity. Brothers served as the SGA treasurer, Men's Judiciary members, and Publications Board representatives.

Homecoming in October provided campus-wide recognition of Sigma Phi Epsilon; it received a trophy for the best house decoration in the Greek division. Recreating a scene from "The Roadrunner" cartoon se- ries, the brotherhood portrayed the East Carolina "Wiley Coyote" finally catching the Southern Illinois "Roadrunner."

In addition to an award-winning decoration, the fraternity featured Dr. Leo Jenkins, university president, as the guest speaker for its annual alum- ni buffet luncheon. A combo party featuring the "Stax of Gold" cli- maxed the week-end for the fraterni-

Roadtripping to Raleigh for the st Carolina-North Carolina State football game provided more fall quarter entertainment. Although the

Pirates wear feated, the Sig Eps mained in W i spirits as they joine the NCSU chapter for a post-gc party.

Returning from quarter break in December, the brotherhood hosted a Christmas party for underprivileged children. Sig Eps continued to partici- pate in philanthropic activities as they donated blood for the 1970 Blood Drive. The fraternity won the distinc- tion of one hundred percent participa- tion in the Blood Drive for the fourth consecutive year.

Brothers and pledges in February attended the Sigma Phi Epsilon Dis- trict Sweetheart Ball and Field Day. During spring quarter, the fraternity staged its annual beer-drinking con- test. Theta Chi proved its drinking abilities when the brothers won the trophy for another year.

TKE Hosts Annual Gay Ninety Party

With a newly panelled party room complete with a black light and beer dispenser, Tau Kappa Epsilon was ready for a year of parties, socials, and other c< ferations. Fall quarter entailed orga zing Homecoming ac- tivities. Alpha Phi's and TKE's coop- erated and jointly constructed a Homecoming parade float. After a seemingly en 'ess week of prepara- Non for Homecoming, the brothers 3:componi : $ to the annual

champagne breakfast. Winter quar- ter fraternity staged its Red Car- lation Ball and crowned a new sweet- eek-end, intramural .oftball, and G eek Week festivities vere only a few of the quarter's so- :ial activities for tl e TKE's. Also in ipring quarter, th mothers and pled- jes hosted their annual Gay Nineties Weekend. Decked out in false mus- aches and "barberpole" striped hirts, the brothers invited their dates o a floating party down the Tar liver. Spring Beach Week-end at >Jag's Head completed the social ac- ivities for 1971.

Even though the fraternity claimed 10 specific national philanthropy, the irothers still exemplified public in- olvement through "Operation Rain- ow," a program for aiding underpri- ileged children in the Greenville rea. During the spring, the fraterni- /'s national headquarters selected a srvice project to be completed by ach TKE Chapter.






Self-Involvement Characterizes Professional, Honorary Greeks

Involvement in all phases of cam- pus and community life characterized professional and honorary Greeks. Sponsoring socials, attending state and national conventions, and relax- ing at rush picnics offered outlets for fun and relaxation. Receiving practi- cal experience in different fields of in- terest, members of these groups invit- ed guest speakers and visited various businesses and organizations

throughout the Southeast. Emphasiz- ing progress through service, honor- ary and professional fraternities spon- sored projects for boys' clubs, brought Christmas to many under- privileged children, sponsored musi- cals for campus entertainment, and proved an asset in stimulating interest in specific areas of interest.

Entertains Children at Xmas Party

Businessmen read Today's Advertising.

Mud and rain failed to prevent Delta Sigma Pi from entertaining cul- turally disadvantaged children from Grimesland, North Carolina, during the Christmas season. In conjunction with Chi Omega, the brothers of East Carolina's oldest business fraternity purchased gifts and toys for the chil- dren and brought happiness to those who seldom experienced such joys.

In addition to preparing for their annual Certified Public Accounts ban-

quet, the fraternity invited business- men from Greenville to deliver busi- ness-related addresses. In February, Rose Ball, a formal dance with a motif of valentines, meant the selection of a new fraternity sweetheart.

Rewarding outstanding service in the fraternity, the brothers presented individually the Scholarship Key and the Outstanding Brother of Delta Sigma Pi award to two deserving members.

Brothers and dates of Delta Sigma Pi celebrate at dinner as another phase of their activities.

Phi Mu Alpha Invites Musician Siguard Rascher For Campus Visit to Promote Cultural Interest

Dick Holoman, Pres.

Internationally known saxophonist Siguard Rascher was invited for a campus visit late in the year by Phi Mu Alpha, honorary national music fraternity, to promote cultural interest in the campus community and to as- sist recital classes.

Joining their female counterpart, the brotherhood helped produce the annual Christmas concert in Decem- ber. More Christmas spirit was en- couraged when Phi Mu Alpha sere-

naded the girls' dormitories with seasonal carols. In the spring, the fra- ternity utilized the amphitheater be- side Fletcher dormitory as a setting for Sunday afternoon concerts.

The fraternity raised money during the year by producing an amateur talent show. Monetary rewards real- ized from the production were desig- nated for presenting a scholarship to a prospective freshman music major.

Pi Omega Pi Organizes Rawl's Bulletin Boards

A more efficient arrangement re- sulted when Pi Omega Pi organized and divided Rawl Building's bulletin boards into business-related group- ings.

Throughout the year, the fraternity maintained an image of service on and off the campus. Mentally retard- ed children in Kinston at the Caswell Center benefited in December from fraternity projects when gifts were sent to them by the brothers. For their fund-raising project this year, the members decided to sell candy in Greenville and surrounding areas.

To receive ideas and suggestions from inter-action with other chapters, Pi Omega Pi assigned a three-mem- ber delegation to the national con- vention in Chicago winter quarter.

Awarding outstanding achievement in the field of business education, the group presented freshman, sopho- more, and junior scholarship awards at the annual awards banquet. Nancy Butner was recipient of the 1971 Thomas Clay Williams Scholarship Award.

Begins English

Tutorial Service

Fun, food, and fellowship com- bined in a picnic to initiate the year's activities for Sigma Tau Delta, the campus honorary professional English fraternity. The fall quarter event for rushees resulted in thirty new mem- bers for the fraterntiy.

During Christmas, the fraternity continued its activities as it presented the annual portrayal of Charles Dick- en's A Christmas Carol. Under the di- rection of Dr. William Stephenson, the presentation was unique because stage movement and visual projection were added to the traditional dramat- ic reading.

An English tutorial service provided by the fraternity proved beneficial to many students. Members' class sched- ules and phone numbers were posted on the departmental bulletin board so interested students could seek availa- ble help in English.

Hosts Halloween Carnival for Boy's Club

Sigma Tau Sigma's fall rush party.

Rather than attempting to sponsor many activities throughout the year, the brothers of Sigma Tau Sigma con- centrated their efforts on one major project each quarter. Since the Greenville Boy's Club received most of the fraternity's attention, the broth- ers hosted an impressive Halloween carnival for their fall quarter project. Decorations for the club building in- cluded the arrangement of booths where the boys could prove their skills at bobbing for apples, driving nails, or throwing darts. One of the most popular attractions of the carni- val was the "Spook House." Greet- ing those brave enough to enter the "Spook House" were simulations of a dead woman rising from her grave and a dead man escaping from a noose.

Continuing their work with the Boy's Club, Sigma Tau Sigma planned to tutor those club members who desired help in specific school subjects. Plans were also projected to solicit funds for the Cancer Drive, the major project for spring quarter.

STUDENT ADMINISTRATION PUBLICATIONS











Publications, Government Provide Forum

Campaign literatures provides backdrop for coeds who wish to know the candidates.

Student government and campus publications serve as two of the most important sets of organizations on campus. University student govern- ment fulfills the democratic and orga- nizational needs of student life, and it endeavors to provide a forum for student political expression. Decisions emanating from the Student Govern- ment Association were subject to overt criticisms, often cruel and un- warranted criticism; but those who served this year in various SGA posi- tions realized the shortcomings of their jobs. Their motivation hopefully resulted from dedication to service rather than personal gain.

Campus publications allowed stu- dent written expression and captured the true spirit of the university family. The Buccaneer preserved the year's events for posterity; the Rebel al- lowed application of creative abili- ties; the Fountainhead recorded daily campus life; and the Key acquainted students with a complex university.

Operating under the second larg- est budget among American universi- ties, the Student Government Associ- ation rented refrigerators to dormito- ry students, initiated a student dis- count program in cooperation with Greenville merchants, and provided a campus transit system.

Recognizing the need to inform the student body of its accomplishments, the SGA published all appropriations to campus organizations, hosted a regular "talk show" on the campus radio, and maintained a special news column in the Fountainhead, the stu- dent newspaper. A major achieve- ment of the year occurred during fall quarter when President Bob Whitley proposed a student advisory board to the Greenville City Council. Approved by the council, the advisory board was established with open member- ship in an effort to enhance the rap- port between the campus and the city of Greenville.

Legislature Suggests Constitution Revision

Legislature studies the minutes before voting for approval.

Providing a source of student ex- pression and political authority, the student legislature met each Monday at five o'clock in Wright Annex. In a year marked with much dissatisfac- tion and disapproval expressed by gtf the student body, the legislature was forced to carry out its legislative busi- ness often under difficult conditions. Panic struck student representatives in the legislature winter quarter when concerned members of the student body circulated a petition to recall the entire legislature body. Pointing out that the legislature had failed in its responsibilities to the students, the petition was successfully completed when over two thousand students signed it. Acting to counter the peti- tion, the judicial branch of the SGA declared it unconstitutional; there- fore, the petition was rendered null and void.

Functioning under the threat of the recall petition, the 1971 session of the legislature managed to propose at least two significant pieces of legis- lation. The first action established a study commission to explore the fea- sibility of hiring a full-time lawyer for the use of the student body. Another important proposal created a Con- stitutional Revision Committee. This committee submitted to the legislature recommendations for modifying and revising the SGA Constitution.

Bob Bostrom, Tony Harris, Steve Sharpe, and Roger Tripp discuss finances.

Since the legislature was consid- ered a source of student expression, several bills which served that pur- pose were proposed. These bills in- cluded the following: an act to elimi- nate parking tickets on campus be- tween the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.; an act to raise the price of student guest tickets for Popular En- tertainment concerts to one dollar more than the price of regular student tickets; an act to transfer an addition- al five hundred dollars to the Emer- gency Loan Fund; a resolution to en- dorse interdormitory visitation and an expansion of such privileges; and an act to restructure the Publications Board.

SGA Eliminates Secretary, Treasurer Below Senior Level

Class officers this year experienced many of the same difficulties as their predecessors. Because of the increas- ing size of each of the classes, orga- nization proved impossible. Debating the advantages and disadvantages of class officers and their usefulness in campus affairs, the SGA legislature voted in September to eliminate the secretary and treasurer below the senior class level. Other innovations

concerning class officers included naming the class presidents to the SGA Executive Budget Committee and enabling them to exert some in- fluence in student affairs.

In keeping with tradition, the sen- ior class officers planned a banquet for graduating seniors in April at the Candlewick Inn. They also projected plans for the selection of a permanent gift for the university.

Presenting musical and cultural tal- ent for the pleasure of the student body, the Entertainment Committee contracted such groups as the Friends of Distinction, the Guess Who, Jerry Butler, and Chicago. Responsibilities to the students required the commit- tee to provide as much musical varie- ty as possible.

Insuring accurate balloting and providing adequate publicity of all campus elections were the duties of the Election's Committee. Chaired by Dede Clegg, the committee utilized the computing center to alleviate much of its workload.

Honor Council Tries Editor for Misappropriating Funds

Book theft was the most chronic of- fense heard by the Men's Honor Council this year. The most controver- sial case occurred in February when Fountainhead editor Bob Thonen was accused of illegally drawing funds from a petty cash fund.

Two major cases came before the Men's Judiciary. Students were tried for using profanity before a university official and for stealing city construc- tion equipment.

The Women's Honor Council heard no cases in 1 971 . Only Campus Code violations were heard by the Wom- en's Judiciary.

SGA Vice-President Faces Assault Charges

University Board. FRONT ROW: Stella Daughlery, Dr. Charles Price, Cynthia Byars. Second Row. Barry Jones, Dr. Frank Motley, Frank Sanders, Bill Owens, Mike Nelson.

Most outstanding of the cases heard by the Review Board was de- termining the constitutionality of the petition to recall the SGA. After seri- ous deliberation, the Review Board deemed the petition vague and not in line with student rights. The Review Board was established to act on ap- peals from the Men's Judicial Council and the Women's Judicial Council.

The University Board, created to deal with violations of riot and dem- onstration regulations, decided a case involving charges that the SGA Vice-President assaulted a black stu- dent. The board found the Vice-Presi- dent guilty of the charges.

Photographer Uses Deteriorating Lab

Joe Brannon, SGA photographer, was employed to photograph various organizations and activities on cam- pus for SGA publications. Rebel, Fountainhead, and the Buccaneer mainly benefited from his efforts.

Bothered by deteriorating labora- tory facilities and overlapping picture appointments, Mr. Brannon experi- enced many difficulties during the year.

Daily typing and filing duties pre- vented the SGA receptionist from enjoying much leisure time this year. Sue McNally, hired on a permanent basis, directed students seeking SGA help and prepared countless commit- tee reports for general distribution. The volume of work in the Student Government Associations's office often required Mrs. McNally's pres- ence during week-ends.

Publications Board Undergoes Complete Revision

New publications board members Tommy Clay, Jim Davis, Brian Vandercook, and Steve Neal outline problem areas.

Complete revision of the structure and by-laws of the Publications Board occurred this year after much debate and consideration. Created in the spring of 1970, a special committee was appointed to revise the board's by-laws. The committee, headed by Mr. Ira Baker of the Journalism De- partment, adopted a proposal that Publications Board members be elect- ed from the student body. Stipulating that no one connected with a campus publication should serve as a voting member of the board, the committee reiterated its position fall quarter. The student legislature approved the com- mittee's recommended modifications and winter quarter elected a new Publications Board of ten members.

All-Nighters Produce 70 All American

Sixty-four steps and an All Ameri- can honor rating. Butter cookies, Fri- tos, countless "greaseburgers," and well-hidden bottles of Johnny Walker Red Label. All of these items were characteristic of a year marked by elation, frustration, and perplexion. In the fall, the 1971 Buccaneer staff grudgingly climbed the sixty-four steps to the office on the third floor of Wright Building and assembled to or- ganize the production of East Caroli- na's yearbook. Plans were immedi- ately projected to repeat last year's achievement: an All American year- book. Editor-in-chief Donna Dixon met with Taylor Publishing Company representatives to set deadlines, to select a cover, and to decide the for- mat of the book. In October, the ed- itor and three other staff members traveled to Minneapolis, Minnesota, for the Associated Collegiate Press convention. Questioning the previous yearbook's First Class rating, Miss Dixon re-submitted the 1 970 Bucca- neer for consideration. After careful deliberation, the ACP found a dis- crepancy in the scoring which changed that rating to All American. Naturally, the staff was elated when the announcement was made in No- vember. It was the first time in the his- tory of the university that the Bucca- neer had received the coveted honor.

Staff elation soon subsided when the first deadline arrived in Decem- ber. Day and night preparations pre- cipitated a frenzy of activity as the staff organized hundreds of pictures, wrote countless captions and "heads," and typed thousands of words on final copy sheets.

"D-Day" hit the staff again in Feb- ruary. More appropriately named "doomsday," the second deadline nearly devastated the staff. Five con- secutive all-nighters, understanding lovers, six cases of "number two" pencils, and two reams of copy paper facilitated the preparation of over four hundred pages in the 1971 Buc- caneer. The worst part of it all was having to worry about final examina- tions at the same time. With prayer, dedication, and a lot of "pure grit," the staff finally mailed the bulk of the yearbook to Dallas, Texas, and awaited its first fall delivery.

Campus Newspaper Charges SGA Censorship

Claiming excessive SGA control and censorship, the campus newspa- per, the Fountainhead, went on strike in November to focus attention on what they considered a desperate sit- uation. Problems resulted when the SGA treasurer and financial adviser refused to sign two salary and requi- sition checks. As the argument was debated and elaborated during the week of conflict, confusion and emo- tional reaction began to cloud the sit- uation. The Publications Board was called into session and passed two motions to clarify the conflict between the paper and the SGA. The motions directed the Publications Board to act as publisher of the Fountainhead and to sign all checks. When the board, acting as publisher, refused to sign the outstanding checks, the Fountain- head decided to strike to draw atten- tion to their cause. Further provoca- tion on the part of the SGA resulted on November 9, 1971, when the SGA legislature convened and voted to rescind all funds for Fountainhead publication winter and spring quar- ters. More determined than ever be- fore, the staff refused to leave the newspaper offices even under the threat of arrest. Staff action contin- ued as they campaigned for signa- tures on a petition to recall the SGA.

Overshadowed by the SGA -Foun- tainhead conflict, all other staff activi- ty seemed secondary. In 1971, the Fountainhead printed several special issues dealing with Women's Libera- tion and with campus sports. In the beginning of the year, the newspaper staff increased Fountainhead 's physi- cal size from tabloid to regular news- paper dimensions. An entertainment page with "Nicky Rat" and "EZU" was added to the regular features of the newspaper.

The Key Orients Newcomers to University

Prepared during spring quarter for use in the first freshman orientation session in June, The Key acquainted freshmen with university regulations, campus organizations, and adminis- trator's duties.

Adding sections on the Men's Resi- dence Council and the Student Union, the Key staff for the first time in- cluded a complete index to facilitate the search for specific items in the handbook. Consisting of 148 pages, the 1970-71 Key was the largest ever published.

Problems of organizing The Key were few, but the staff did encounter one major difficulty when the printer erroneously charged $1,000 more than the agreed amount. Such prob- lems were easy to tolerate, however, because of the cheerful atmosphere surrounding the staff. The office was filled with cuddly stuffed animals and the laughs and coos of Editor Bev Denny's four-month old daughter, Lisa.

Staff Fails to Distribute Fall Quarter Rebel

Rebel Staff. Walt Whitmore, Woody Thurman, and Kelly Almond.

Walt Whitmore, art editor.

As East Carolina's literary maga- zine, the Rebel has consistently re- ceived All American Honor ratings from the Associated Collegiate Press. This year the Rebel staff encountered several unfortunate problems. Rod Ketner, fall quarter editor, was forced to leave East Carolina during the quarter because of ill health. Because of this and a combination of other factors, the Rebel was not distributed fall quarter. As a result, dissatisfied students questioned the Rebel's worth and campaigned for its removal on campus.

Aspiring young writers from high schools in northeastern North Caro- lina gathered in the Rebel offices for a writing workshop late in 1 970. Par- ticipants selected manuscripts that would best be presented in a maga- zine similar to the format and total visual effect of the Rebel.

ACADEMICS











New Construction, Record Enrollment Set Stage

Nine new programs leading to graduate and undergraduate degrees in addition to the seventy-four aca- demic programs already offered,

a $1,000,000 donation for a proposed planetarium, and a record enrollment of 10,028 students marked the open- ing of East Carolina University's sixty- first academic year.

New facilities included a four-story Social Science Building, a soda shop, an additional wing to the Science complex, and housing for the Devel- opment Evaluation Clinic. Seventy- three new faculty members made the student-faculty ratio 1 7 to 1 .

For the first time the B.S. degree was offered in Applied Physics, School and Community Health, and Parks, Recreation, and Conservation. New master's degree programs were instituted in Romance Languages, Ge- ology, and Library Science.

Students this year served on practi- cally all academic committees, and two student representatives sat with the Board of Trustees.

Dr. Jenkins Envisions Medical Complex

Vision, action, and democracy Division of Health Affairs made rapid

mark the dyrtamic president of East Carolina University. Since assuming the presidency in 1960, Dr. Leo W. Jenkins has had visions of increasing greatness for the university and for the region. A two-year medical school for the university and a medical cen- ter for Eastern North Carolina have been his clearest recent ambitions. These visions have been followed by undaunted action on the campus, in the town, in the surrounding area, and in the state legislature.

Under the aegis of Dr. Jenkins, two baccalaureate degrees were added; one Master of Science Degree pro- gram and five Masters of Arts were instituted. Minor programs in journal- ism, Information Science, and Institu- tional Management were begun. The

strides with great increases in faculty and the introduction of programs in physical therapy and medical records science. Reflecting on the year, Dr. Jenkins emphasized, "We must con- tinue to press forward to implement newly-developing programs and to identify new ways that East Carolina University can be of service."

Dr. Jenkins practices democracy not only in government but also in his administration of the university. The President's home, he declares, belongs to the people. Dr. and Mrs. Jenkins have entertained hundreds of students, faculty, and friends of the university. Scholars, athletes, aca- demic chairmen, and maintenance workers are graciously received in his
