From 1947 to 1958, Dr. Messick
said, East Carolina College increased
more in average attendance than any
other college in the state. Figures
show an increase of 250 per cent dur-
ing this period, he explained.
In addition, he said, the eollege has
increased its annual graduates by 360
per cent; its graduates in teaching by
275 per cent; and its graduate, or
M. A. degrees, awarded by 400 per
cent. In contrast, he said, East Caro-
lina's recommended per capita appro-
priation for the next biennium is less
than that of any other state college
Appropriations per capita for per-
manent improvements during the per-
iod of 1947- 1958, he stated, were less
than those made to any other state
college. Amounts recommended for
the biennium 1959-1961 also place
East Carolina at the bottom of the
list, he said.
The college needs additional phy-
sical facilities and instructional equip-
ment to provide for the needs of stu-
dents and to carry on an effective and
progressive instructional program, he
told AAUP members.
For the biennium 1959-1961, he said,
the recommended per capita appro-
priation for maintenance places East
Carolina next to bottom among state
Dr. Messick brought to the atten-
tion of bis audience the fact that the
student-teacher ratio at
state colleges except two. Additions
to the teaching staff are needed, he
indicated, to improve this situation.
Turning to conditions in the col-
lege library, he said that with the
exception of the University of North
Carolina at Chapel Hill, East Caro-
lina had in 1957-1958 the largest total
circulation of books among state col-
leges. During this time, however, he
said, the college stood third from the
bottom in the amount spent per stu-
dent for its professional library staff
and at the bottom for the number of
students served by each staff member.
In the average per capita recom-
mendations for library books and per-
iodicals for the 1959-1961 biennuim,
he said, East Carolina's recommended
appropriation is third from the low-
est for state colleges.
Monday night the Senate voted to
go on record as favoring the campus
publication, THE REBEL. The action
was taken as a result of a campus
poll conducted by the senators, and
it assured the publication of at least
one more year of life.

Few Attend Awards Day
Awards Day fizzled last week as it has
done repeatedly in the past tow years. Al-
though the program was well planned by
chairman -lane Staples and almost every
was present, the show played
a nearly empty house.
The measly handful of students which
made up the congregation was almost totally
composed of award winners. No one else in
this school o 4,000 cared enough to see the
"cream of the crop rewarded for their hard
work throughout the year.
Perhaps not enough students and faculty
member knew about the big day. The news-
paper was partially at fault for not heralding
the event in bolder type. There should have
been an announcement made in every class.
There should have been a student-wide as-
sembly in the morning instead of the 4:00
The awards winners certainly would have
felt more honored had a special period been
set aside for the presentations. Certainly a
near full house would have resulted from such
a free period. Our own outstanding students
are surely as important as some of the other
reasons for student assemblies.
In the past few weeks a lot of
attention has been directed toward the
SGA. Much of this attention has
stemmed from an honest interest
in what the SGA is doing and what it
plans to do about current issues with
which it is faced. Also, however, a
portion of the attention has come
from a few masters of the pen who
insists on writing their little article
to the EAST CAROLINIAN cutting
the SGA about issues with which it
has hardly had time to cope as yet.
This bit of exposition will be dedicat-
ed for the most part to answering
questions for the group who account
for the attention stemming from hon-
est interest. I'll have a few words
for the second group at the very
tail end of the article which is where
it belongs, and should be.
National Student Association
Just before the last SGA admini-
stration left office the Senate voted
to drop out of the National Student
Government organization. Since the
new administration has taken office,
we have been investigating the situa-
tion and have made some progress
toward the decision of whether or
pot it would be better for East Caro-
lina College to remain out or to take
steps to be reinstated. j
At present the outlook is not fa-
vorahle toward the NSA so far as
the present administration is con-
cerned. However, we have written the
NSA for complete information on its
benefits and the side of the story that
we may not have seen yet. As soon
as this issue has been studied thor-
oughly and the Senate has taken ac-
tion on it the outcome will be an-
One thing is for sure at present; we
do not want to lose contact with
i the: schools and the wealth of in-
formation that we can get on Stu-
dent Government from associating
with other school.
If we should stay out of NSA we
will surely affiliate with another
-roup of comparable value. Probably
we would become more active in t e
North State Student Government As-
sociation which is made up of the
Schools in our own conference.
The Summer School SGA of 1958
made the purchase of a Great Dane
whkh was to be the BCC mascot.
Much criticism has been accorded the
officers of that administration for
what may have seemed like an on
the spur of the moment action, how-
over. I assure you that the subject of
a school mascot has been discussed
in SGA channels for a good while.
The only problem that "Hue has
presented "the SGA is that of getting
someone to care for him. This has
been taken care of now as Hob Con-
nolley has taken over the job. The
cost of "Hue's" upkeep, contrary to
biased reports, is quite low compare 1
to his potential value as a mascot.
If the students took pride in and
made the fuss over "Buc" that most
schools do their mascot, he would be
the most popular dog in the state.
Last year the SGA voted to allow
the existence of a literary magazine
to be published at the expense of the
student fund for one year to see if it
were well enough received by the
student b. dy to merit its being.
It was that a minimum of funds

to operate for one year trial period
and the tentative amount was set
at $2500. THE REHEL staff was
quite happy for the chance to prove
themselves and said that they were
sure that they could operate on this
amount. However, when the Budget
Committee met in the fall and made
the appropriation official THE RE
BEL staff immediately set up a howl
and blasted the committee for trying
to starve them campus. Later when
THE REHEL reported to the Budget
Committee that they needed $600
more to get the magazine to press
for the third issue the committee
answered their call for help to the
tune of "we know that we can make
it now Then on April 7, 1950 THE
REBEL submitted another request to
the Budget Committee asking for
$126 for a typewriter.
The Committee feeling that THE
REBEL had enough money for the
other items only appropriated $150
for a new typewriter which it was
thought they really needed, and which
is a much more realistic figure for
a trade in than is $125.
I dont know what THE REHEL
expects or how they can write news-
paper articles putting the Committee
kdown so thoroughly but I assure again
that THE REBEL has had every con-
sideration possible and have even been
appropriated $760 more than they
said they could operate on in the
Contrary to some reports, the SGA
does have a constitution. At present
the St;A is operating under the con-
stitution that is found in the 1957-
The only changes being that we
are using the Senate System of as-
sembly for SGA meetings which is
explained in the 1958-1959 student
handbook, "The Key So far as any
questions other than those pertaining
to the actual Senate are concerned,
they are subject to the provisions of
the Constitution found in the 1957-
A seemingly very capable com-
mittee is at present working on a
new constitution that may prove more
satisfactory for the need of the Se-
nate at its present capacity. How-
ever, contrary to popular reports, the
fate of the SGA does not depend on
this new constitution and the SGA is
not running foot loose and fancy free
until it is written.
This has long been a subject for
pointing fingers and calling ETC a
suitcase college. It is and has been
my contention that the biggest rea-
son for the lack of student partici-
pation is the lack of a suitable com-
munication system to let the students
knowT what is going on and just what
the SGA is doing
Much thought has been given to
this problem and the following plans
are being considered as feasible.
These are to try to work through the
administration to have important
events that are sponsored by the
SGA such as "Kiss Me Kate" The
Air Force Concert Band, Homecoming,
May Day, Playhouse productions,
free movies and scores of others
announced in class before the begin-
ning of class.
Also as a part of this plan a com-
mittee on communications will be set
up to mimeograph announcements,
items of business of interest to the
student body and distribute them to
the dormitories and certain places on
campus that will be easily accessable
to off campus students.
I sincerely hope that I have an-
swered most of the questions that
are of interest to the student body
and that you will receive this as the
other side of some of the stories that
have been frequenting the paper for
Just a word to all the little John-
sons. Hob and others, who write week-
ly articles that can not seem to re-
frain from cutting the SGA with
their radical notions. If you would
spend half the time in serious work
fi r the SGA that you spend in pick-
ing np scraps of gossip and free talk
to put in your little articles, then
most of the problems we are faced
with at present would be cleared up
in no time flat.
Phase do not think that I am try-
ing to hinder articles and letters to
the paper because I'm not. It's just
that I want the student body to see
the true and unbiased side of the
situation for a change so that you will
know really what is going on.
In fact last week when columnist
Hob Johnson appologized to me in
advance for this week cutting because
as he sad "The only way I can get

With the gross amount of play
action exploding at our underrated
college, students are beginning to
marvel at the number of talented
people, who have never been recog-
nized as such. An example of this
exclamation is the recent musical,
"Kiss Me Kate which was received
by the gaping student body and pub-
lic as, in short terms, terrific.
With four leading characters cen-
tered in the midst of a cast of ap-
proximately fifty performers, the
production was just about too over-
whelming. The experienced-stuffed
orchestra under the direction of Don-
ald Hayes swept the chords with
such accuracy and smoothness that
just listening to them for the dura-
tion of the play was well-worth the
Hannah England, a strikingly love-
ly person, possesed by far the most
enchanting voice heard throughout
the music-filled performance. Pro-
jecting better as the tempermental
Katherine (Taming of the Shrew)
than as the uncooperative Lille Va-
nessi, Miss England orated her songs
with such vigor than when she sang
"I Hate Men the entire stage seem-
Hannah overshadowed her co-star,
Jerry Powell, to such an extent that
Mr. Powell sometimes seemed to be
lost in the confusion of artist versus
artist. Hannah's voice was by far
the stronger and more advanced and
therefore provided her the attention
she deserved. As Lille Vanessi, Han-
rah, being a better singer than she
is an actress, lost her standing. Only
her delightful screams were strong
enough for the mighty role she weak-
In the role of Lille Vanessi's latest
hubby, Jerry Powell read his lines
practically verbatim; but, since an
actor is supposed to employ a certain
amount of feeling and expression,
Jerry will not take up space in EC
history as an actor. Unfortunately,
Mr. Powell, became so engrossed in
his Shakespearean lingo that he car-
ried his speech into his off-stage
role of Fred Graham. Jerry lacked
the force and stature for which the
role called; instead he looked like a
student dressed in actor's clothing.
His voice, which was definitely an
asset, partially made up for his bad
acting. But his best song, "So in
Love was covered up by an explo-
sion from the bongo drums.
Leigh Dobson and Ken Killebrew
were cast in the important roles of
Lois Lane and Bill Calhoun, the Bian-
ca and Lucentio of the Shakespearean
comedy. Leigh, well-known for her
exploits in playhouse productions,
threw in some sex and overacting and
came up with a large portion of ham.
But fortunately in this particular
role "too much ham" was received
by the audience with enthusiastic ap-
plause and constant snickers and
Leigh's voice was a complete
change from Miss England's lovely
one, but by adding a few sexy dances
to her sultry voice, her choice of
charm was exactly what the part
called for. "Always True to You"
was overdone a wee bit by the leng-
thy encores, but her "Tom, Dick and
Harry" bit was so unusual for the
period depicted that it was probably
the most cleverly portrayed in the
Ken Killebrew had his chance with
acting, singing and even solo dancing,
but his attempts as an actor were
weak and his choppy dancing proved
graceless; only his singing was com-
mendable. His best two numbers were
'Why Don't You Behave" and "Bian-
ca both of which were done with
the aid of Miss Dobson's exposed
legs and the exuberant chorus.
Dave Doolittle and Bob Koraegay
had the wittiest roles and in several
scenes got so carried away with
themselves that the finale of the first
act was lost in the shuffle and con-
fusion of laughter. Miss England
thought she was the center of attrac-
tion, but in this scene the two hams
ruined her lines with slap-stick come-
dy. "Brush Up Your Shakespeare
a song complete with spice and "not
so subtle" remarks, was overdone.
After the first two encores most of
the audience grew tired of seeing
them prance around with casual foot-

veral scenes from the heroes. John's

After the bijr buildup the dancers,
under the direction of Jim Gillikin,
were not up to the great expectations
of the viewers. Mr. Gillikin, Georgia
Parrot, and Janet Arnold performed
with the grace of troopers and caused
the remaining seven to look even
more cramped. But realizing how hard
it was to find dancers, the amateurs
performed fairly well. The blended
voices of the chorus instituted a
combination that attributed to the
success of several of the melodies.
All in all, the huge cast produced
a successful play despite poor acting
because as in all musicals, acting
isn't the principal matter.
Recently several students witness-
ed "Madame Butterfly an opera
shown at the Pitt. Those who believe
the play to be slightly above their
heads and hardly worth the effort
of attending really missed a treat.
Even if one does not like "high brow"
music, the colorful scenery and the
English translated story was enough
to provide its audience with an even-
ing of entertainment. No wonder the
Europeans keep harping about Ameri-
ca's lack of culture when even col-
lege students aren't interested enough
to see something of this nature when
they are given the chance.

When did night baseball begin?
1900? 1890? 1930? 1924? 1880?
If you guessed the year of 1880
you were right. In September of
that year two amateur teams
tangled at Nantasket Beach,
Mass and with the aid of arc-
lights strung along the field, they
were able to complete nine full
innings between 8 and 9:30 P.M.
Organized baseball's first night
game was played on April 28,
1920 when Independence, Kan-
sas ef the Western Association
hastily posted some lights and
played a night contest.
Officers for the 1959-60 Physical
Education Major's Club were elected
at last week's regular club meeting.
Lob Greene, a rising senior, was
elected to serve as the new president.
Other officers are Fred Overman,
vice president; Sandra Bethune, se-
cretary; Janice Edwards, treasurer;
and Ella Tyson and Pete Finnegan,
women's and men's program chair-
man, respectively. Dr. Pyne of the
Physical Education faculty is club
The new officers will assume their
duties at the next regular meeting
which will be May 5, at 7 o'clock in
the gymnasium. This will be the last
club meeting. Loren Franklin, a local
physical therapist, will speak to the
club about the field of physical ther-
apy and its place in modern physi-
Greene, the new president, stated,
"Many physical education majors have
shown a renewed interest in club
participation in the last two or three
meetings and we are hoping that the
interest will spread to the point that
we will have one of the most active
clubs on campus next year "All
Physical Education majors who have
not joined the club are cordially in-
vited to attend Tuesday night's meet-
ing and take part in our discussions.
The club is ours and it is our re-
sponsibility to strengthen it by our
attendance and active participation
Lambda Chi Alpha and the Day
Students sewed up first places in
their respective softball leagues in
intramural play last week. Lambda

ished 6-0 record in the Fraternity

dent squad had a 5-0 mark in the

Ttoeta Chi Out
A rule that forbids a team to for-
feit more than one game in intra-
mural play and still participate hit
Theta Chi last week. The fraterni-
ty team forfeited to Lambda Chi
and thus gave LOA its final win.
This forfeit was awarded as Theta
Chi had previously lost two games
by forfeit. It had failed to show up
for games with Kappa Alpha and
Pi Kappa Alpha. The Low Cuts and
the ROTC teams had been dropped
from the Independent League for
such action previous to this. Theta
Chi will not be eligible for the play-
offs even though they finished with
a 2-4 mark which is better than three
other teams in the league.
Delta Sigma Pi had to get in on
the forfeit act too as they could
garner eight men on the field when
playing time arose and thus lost to
Kappa Alpha 7-0. Concerning the
forfeits, student director Bill Boyd
stated, "It greatly disturbs all con-
nected with intramurals here at ECC
when a team forfeits a game. Coach
Smith and myself have exhausted all
efforts to make the program a sound
one during the spring. The teams
know when they are scheduled to
play and the times are actually
geared to their requests. A group
certainly does not act in good faith
when it enters a league, promises
to play the games scheduled and then
fails to show. The team hurts itself,
hurts the league and costs the intra-
mural program money. Most of the
teams take their play seriously but
the ROTC team and Theta Chi really
hurt the program this spring. Both are
fine and outstanding organizations
but there is no excuse for this lack
of faith. This type of participation
did not occur in football or basket-
ball. I hope it does not occnr again
in any sport next year
Lambda Chi won their fifth game
of the season at the expense of Kap-
pa Alpha. Sonny Gillikin slammed
out a homer and three singles in the
Pitcher Craig Reed staved off a
seventh inning rally by Pi Karpa
Alpha on Thursday and hurled a 12
to 10 victory for Kappa Sigma Nu.
On Tuesday John Spoone hit and
hurled Lambda Chi to its fourth
win. Spoone poled a towering home
run in the 7 to 4 victory over Kappa
Jessel Curry gave up five solid
hits, the most he had previously given
up in three games, to the Bomber
nine in a 15 to 4 win. Curry had three
hits in the Day Students win.
The outstanding hitting of the in-
tramural softball season came last
Thursday as Ike Riddick, Day Stu-
dent shortstop, powered two home
runs and two singles to drive in six
big runs. Riddick is a first string
Pirate basketball Iguard.
Freddy Archer hurled a 13 to 8
win over the Esquires on Tuesday
to all but wrap up second place in
the Independent loop.
In the final intramural contest of
the week Kappa Sigma Nu barely
trimmed Delta Sigma ,Pi by a score
of 14 to 13.
Playoffs for the final college stand-
ings got underway on Tuesday. Six
teams in the Fraternity League and
five in the Independent league are in-
volved. Thus with 11 teams partici-
pating there will be one of eleven
final places a team can finish in
when the playoffs are completed.
Trophies will be awarded to the
top four teams in the final college

Joe Holmes scored 41 points between
them Monday as East Carolina out-
scored an underdog Atlantic Christ-

by a 96 to 35 mark.
Curry, EC's leading scorer, had
15 points while Speight and Holmes
had 13 each.
Holmes Sets Record
In the North State Conference
meet Joe Holmes of Manteo, N. C.
broke his old conference discus re-
cord of 122'6 He hurled the flat
disc 123' 7 3-4" in doing so. Holmes
hurled the shot put 40'11" to be the
top man in the weight events.
Portsmouth's Jess Curry racked up
his 15 markers by taking a first
place in the low hurdles with a time
of 26.4, a first in the high hurdles
with a time of 15.4, hurling the jave-
lin for a first spot throw of 173'9"

Speight could not quite take first
place in the 100 yard dash, which
ACC won with a time of 10 seconds
flat but his second place time was
10.1. Pirate footballer Speight nabb-
ed a first in the broad jump with
a distance of 21'7" and also had a
coveted first in the 220 yard dash
in a time of 22.6 seconds.
Foster Morse was right behind
Holmes in the scoring department
with 11V while Greenville's F. O.
Nunn had 10 markers. Frank Free-
man picked up eight points, Ken
Edwards 64 and Bob Ruck 5tt-
Edwards is unbeaten in the 880 and
mile events this year in all meets.
In the distance running Morse and
Freeman were first and second in
the mile respectively. The winning
time was a poor 5:01, but poor times
during the meet were attributed
largely to a track that is very slow
and hard to make good times on.
In 1938, 23 year old Cincinnati
lefthander Johnny Vander Meer
hurled a nine inning no hit, no
run baseball game against Boston
on June 11, 3-9. On June 15, four
days later, Vander Meer, hurled
27 consecutive outs at the Brook-
lyn Dodgers. Thus he pitched 54
straight outs, or 18 innings with-
out a hit or a run. Quite a feat
which may never be equaled in
