Dear Tom:
Greetings to the faculty, student
body and staff of East Carolina Col-
lege for the Yuletide Season of I960.
I left there about a year ago, but
never a day passes that I do not i
think of and pray for everyone con-
nected with the College, which is
still near to my heart. Many whom I
knew have gone, but most of you
were still there when I left. The
year has been good for me and I
trust for you as well.
I have kept up with the College
through the News and Observer, the
Daily Reflector, the East Carolinian,
through the news reports which have
come to me regularly, as well us
through correspondence with Presi-
dent Leo Wr. Jenkins and others. I

when I saw the football score as a
result of the Richmond game, so far
as activities were concerned. It makes
me happy to see the College on the
winning side.
I was glad when I saw the recog-
nition for Professor Ovid Pierce. I
have enjoyed the columns of the Col-
lege paper, and I was happy to see
the splendidly written article, A Word
Said, by Roy Martin, in the excellent
issue of the Rebel. I can only say,
Keep the good work going on, and
God bless everyone of you and
you for His purpose not only
for this Season but for all the years
which lie ahead.
Fraternally and gratefully yours,

Supply Stores Use Profits For Scholarships
Since 1962 the College has used
profits derived from the operation of
the Student Supply Store for scholar-
ships awarded to deserving students.
As the size of the student body and
the operations of the stores have
grown, the number of scholarships has
increased until this year 176 stu-
dents are receiving financial help
through these scholarships.
In order to be eligible for a scholar-
ship, a student must, of course, show
a financial need and also have a
superior scholastic record. Applica-
tions from the incoming freshmen
required an evaluation of the stu-
dent's qualifications by the high
school prineipal and generally a stu-
dent must rank in the top 26 per cent
of his class in order to qualify far a

James L. Tucker, Chairman, Presi-

In addition to the scholarships, the
Student Store gives employment to
approximately 90 students who re-
ceived wages of $28,679 last year. The
Stores have 12 full time employees,
including Mr. Harry Rainey who was
advanced to the position of manager
from that of assistant manager this
fall upon the resignation of Mr.
Mahlon Coles who resigned to accept
a position as business manager of
Converse College.
According to Mr. F. D. Duncan,
Business Manager of the college, the
net profit from Student Store opera-
tions for past years has averaged
approximately 7 per cent of the total
volume of sales and the major part
of this is derived from sales in the
Soda Shop and from sundries.
In accordance with standard prac-
tice in the textbook industry, the
Store receives from publishers a dis-
count of 20 per cent from the list
price of books. According to Mr.
Duncan, transportation cost amounts
to about 2 12 per cent of the cost
of the textbook: and salaries, postage,
telephone, telegraph, expense of re-
turning unsold books and occasional
losses from books which become ob-
solete consume almost all of the mar-
gin between the purchase price and

For several years prior to 1968-60
most of the income from the Student
Stores was used for modernising
equipment and expanding services.
Since the State provides only the
building, the equipment mast be
bought from whatever profits the
Stores may make. Approximately
$9,000 was spent on equipment when
the new book store and soda shop
was established in the basement of
the new South Cafeteria and a much
larger amount was spent when the
Student Stores were moved to the
present location in Wright Building
several years ago.
Last year the Student Supply
Stores gross sales totaled $860,000.
Of this amount they realized a net
profit of $18,116.00. According to Mr.
Duncan, almost all of this money has
gone for scholarships this year. No
figures are available on the exact
amount of scholarships since some
of those granted were turned down,
while other scholarship students have
dropped out of school.
Mr. Duncan reported that of the
money not going for scholarships
some was used to meet special ex-
pense that can't come out of the state
budget, but added very little was
used for this.

United Nations
Western Powers Support fmy
Last week the United States advanced
$20 million to the Unied Nations to help
meet expenses until the end of the year. The
Russians contributed nothing According to
Time magazine the U.S. has paid $116 million
to the Russians' $17 million on the United
Nation's $300 million budget this year.
These figures could be interpreted as
further examples of the United States' prac-
tice of trying to buy respect from the rest
of the world, since we have been accused
(perhaps correctly in some oases) of trying
to buy friendship.
We feel, however, this money has been
wisely spent. The United Nations is still in
the embryonic stage of what will grow (we
hope) to be a strong and determined organi-
zation capable of handling international dis-
putes with the authority and efficiency our
own federal government demonstraes when
dealing with its constituent states.
We consider the U.N. to be a dream which
can come true if it becomes strong
enough. Since its organization, the United
Nations has been plagued with conflicts and
cultural elements which can still bring about
its downfall. Presently, nationally sovereignty
and power pacts are the big disease germs
to the United Nations.
Soviet Russia has behind her a motley
collection of satellites ranging from the Bal-
tic countries to North Korea, Communist
China and perhaps soon even Cuba. This
Russian roulette wheel of power will never
pay winning stakes to the interests of Peace.
We are gambling in a 'fixed' game.
On the other hand let's look at the play-
ers. The U.S. seems to be a heavy better.
But then why not? Besides the U.S. stands the
North Atlantic Treaty Organization, the
Southeast Asia Treaty Organization, and the
Organization of American States all wait-
ing for a false play in a game they know is
crooked. So can we really accuse the Commu-
nist power of plotting when we take almost
the same position?
The Communists would be fools to at-
tempt disarmament while faced with such
power pacts. Remember, we are as much of
a threat to communism as they are to de-
mocracy. And they (at least the controlling
factor) feel as strongly about their beliefs
as we do.
By opposing groups of nations against
each other to preserve peace we have set up
a paradox of threats which actually prevent
progress toward disarmament and world
peace. If the power pact nations (including
ourselves) were as loyal to the U.N. as they
are to each other, half of our problem would
be solved.
None of the 99 member nations of the
U. N. have ever relinquished any real au-
thority or sovereignty to international gov-
ernment. Sure, we picked up a $20 million
U.N. tab lass week (as we said, wisely spent),
but would we have given up our veto power
on the Security Council?
Until the United States and the rest of
the western powers decide we must make
sacrifices to have effective international or-
ganization, none will evolve. The east has
made it's stand we must be the ones to
lead. We must set the example. We must
support the U. N. as strongly as we support
the concepts on which we are founded. Lin-
coln's "Government of the people, by the
people, for the people" must be extended to
mean more than just the American people.

Only another actor of typical stand-

Soon after local sororities were or-
ganfoed at East Carolina, an Inter-
Sorority Council was set up as a
governing board. The I. S. C under
the leadership of Dean Ruth White
and President Jackie Byrd, worked
during the '5859 school year toward
the goal of national affiliation for the
eight local groups.
The I. S. iC. had looked ahead even
from the very beginning of its organi-
zation. Two representatives from each
sorority had seats on the council and
the presidents of the sororities at-
tended the meetings but had no vote.
This organizational plan is the one
recognized by National Panhellenic
Can noil.
In the fall of 1959, the administra-
tion gave permission for representa-
tives of national groups to come on
campus for interviews with the local
sororities. National ofices recog-
nized the potential of the local
G reeks and meetings between locals
and nationals were held in dormitory
parlors. By December, all eight soror-
ities had petitioned and had been ac-
cepted by national organizations.

Zeta Lambda Chapter Of Delta Zeta Sorority
Delta Zeta National Sorority was
established on the East Carolina cam-
ipus in February, 1960. The local sor-
ority, Lambda Tau became the Zeta
Lambda Chapter of Delta Zeta.
The Zeta Lambda Chapter is one
of 129 college chapters and 182 alu-
mnae chapters which have been es-
tablished since the sorority's found-
ing in 1902 at Miami University, Ox-
ford, Ohio. The total membership in-
cludes 40,611 girls. Sixty-two Mo-
thers' Clubs are found throughout
the United States.
Delta Zetas seek to stimulate one
smother in the pursuit of knowledge,
to promote the moral and social cul-
ture of its members, and to develop
plans for guidance and unity in ac-
tion. High ideals, loyalty, good scho-
larship, participation in college ac-
tivities, tolerance, leadership, consid-
others, and other traits of
'tes, tc
fine character are the goals of every
individual member of Delta Zeta.
The badge, the Roman Lamp, was
voted the most beautiful and symbolic
of all the sorority pins. Delta Zeta
colors are Old Rose and Vieux Green;
the flower, the Killarney Rose; and
the jewel, the diamond. "The Lamp"
is the sorority magazine.
Delta Zeta has adopted a program

not enough to reach the demands of

In 1958 the administration gave
the police force a much needed motor

from the police station in Greenville.

The campus police office is located
in the basement of the East Wing of
Fleming. They have a telephone in
their office, and as an added service
to the men students they keep all of

voyage around the world aboard the
most famous sailing ship afloatis
in the offing for the summer of 1961.
The ship, the 69-ft. brigantine Yan-
kee, will sail from Miami July 1,
1961, and follow the trade winds to
such places as Pitcairn and Easter
Islands, the South Seas, Africa, the
Orient, and 'round-the-horn to South
America and the West Indies.
The 25 persons aboard will actually
serve as crew and help navigate and
sail the ship. They will share ex-
penses of the cruise. Besides a rare
chance to become proficient in tra-
ditional windjammer sailing skills the
'round-the-world voyage offers a un-
ique educational opportunity, accord-
ing to Yankee's owner, Oapt. Mike
Burke of Miami.
"We'll sail to places far off the
beaten tourist path says Capt.
Burke. "For example, we can get a
glimpse of history by talking to de-
scendants of The Bounty at Pitcairn,
and by studying customs and people
from Tahiti to Zanzibar
Arrangements have been made, he
adds, for students to continue their
studies aboard under professional
guidance during the 18-month &0
C00 mile voyage. Side trips will be ar-
ranged to major inland points of in-
terest and activity will range from
fishing and skindiving to big game
hunts and photo-safaris.
Yankee, which gained renown as
result of countless magazine articles
and six books about four earlier
'round-the-world cruises under com-
mand, of Capt. Irving Johnson, was
built in Emden, Germany, and operat-
ed as a North Sea pilot vessel until
captured by the British in World War
II. When Capt. Johnson purchased
her in 1947, Yankee was changed
from schooner to square-Tigged brig-
antine. Her 15 sails total 7,775 square

When will some of the so-called mature college students at East
Carolina college grow out of the grammar school traditions and start doing
something constructive at athletic events, instead of destructive. The un-
reepectabie doings of a host of students who attend this college following
the tense High Point contest Tuesday night, concerning the attack of one
highly spirited Panther cheerleader was an act of aggression which was
cruel, ruthless, and unmeciful to the eyes of any normal individual who
iv the incident happen.
The short stoeky cheerleader from the visitor's side probably had
more intestinal fortitude than the combining aggressors ever thought about
hiving. As any other normal human would do, this boy had a very im-
portant job to do. The spirited High Pointer actually cheered his well-
coached team on to win with comparatively small ingredients of aid from
the hand full of Panther supporters.
The voice of the only visiting cheerleader could be heard loudly
throughout Memorial Gymnasium where a capacity crowd of 2700 had
gathered to watch the close contest. During the second half, when the
visitors changed baskets, this stout hearted young- man fould actually carry
his megaphone down to his team's goal and cheer his iplayers on.
The unsportsman-like conduct of! the Pirate fans from across the
way toward the response of the High Point cheers was not disheartening
discouraging on the High Point side of the fence, but seemed to propel
louder cheers than the visitors, but certainly not as respectable. Certainly
the game was one of teasion with our Pirates only a few points behind
during the closing minutes before the final horn, but no game is worth
what happened following the cleanly fought contest.
A portion of our most unrespectable students took it on themselves
to literally "tear up" our friend, the High Point cheerleader, and his mega-
phone after the game. Only the action of the brave work of some of our
own student body saved this boy from possible serious injuries. With some
of our own football players keeping the chumps off the cheerleader's
back, he was able to survive the situation.
But what about the moral of this ruthless incident? It can happen
again and what would we think if someone did this to our school. Such an
immoral act is certainly one that does not aid this school in its chances
for greater accomplishments, but instead promotes juvenile delinquency to
its maximum capacity.
Out of a student body of close to 5,000 why do certain immature
groups spoil the chances for the success of East Carolina from a social
standpoint? Certainly our relationships with other schools can and will
not be approved as respectable, if something is not done concerning the
conduct of ill-mannered individuals.
School spirit is something that we cannot do without, but enthus-
iasm should be for the benefit of East Carolina and not for the destruc-
tion of the college. Last Friday night's game with Lenoir Rhyne empha-
sized good school spirit from the E.C.C. student body, but what would
have happened had we lost the contest. Maybe there would not have been
an o-utrageous conflict that happened Tuesday night, but certainly the
spirit would not have been as high.
Good sportsmanship is a fine complement to our college, and the
only way the student body is going to receive any appreciation from any-
one is to learn to take the good with the bad. Perhaps there are many
things which can hinder the fan to the extent that he is emotionally
upset due to high tensions at an athletic contest. But if he cannot control
these emotions then he should not bring it upon himself to attend an
athletic event at East Carolina College for the good of the school and
Let us hope that nothing of this nature happens again during future
athletic events. How can we expect to compete against the larger sehools if
it does. Our chances for the Southern Conference have been dimmed al-
eady due to the fact that we are not i:i the National Collegiate Athletic
Association, but no conference would take any pride in having a school
with mischief such as that which occurred in the High Point contest.

Ed Norris and Jim Early led the
Fraternity All-Stars to a 32-19 vic-
tory over the Dormitory All-Stars on
the Inter-Mural field. The most valu-
able player will be named on Award's
Night at the end of the school year.
There will also be intramural wrest-
ling, table tennis with Coach Welborn
.being the wrestling instructor. Three
champions were recently named for
the respective gridiron leagues. The
third floor of the west wing of Jones
Hall won their league, the new dorm
champs are the fourth floor of the
east wing of the Freshman dormitory,
and the fraternity champs were the
Country Gents.
The volleyball champions were also
named recently: for Jones Hall the
eecond floor of the west wing won
the championship in that dorm, the
new dorm had the second floor of the
wing proclaimed champions, and
Country Gents, as in football,
also champs in volleyball in the
cty league competition.
East Carolina suffered its first,
conference loss of the young season
when High Point College took a 60-
68 decision on the Buc home floor.
The Pirates trailed the entire contest,
and were never able to take the lead
from the visiting five.
Coach Virgil Yow of the victorious
Panthers attributed the win to a
stout High Point defense. The visiting
coach stated "that the game was the
best defensive effort any of his clubs
had ever played this early in the
season "We knew ECC's personnel,
and how to stop them the young
Panther mentor went on to say. The
team was not counting possession as
the main thing, but they decided
early that they could not run with the
Bucs, he continued to comment.
While the Pirates certainly looked
far from impressive, coach Earl
Smith was not disheartened. "I havt
never seen an undefeated team in the
North State Conference as yet stated
the Pirate mentor, "and this year will
be no exception
Swimming Quint Looks Impressive
Coach Smith pointed out that this
is not the same chib as hist year and
the act that Charlie Lewis and Bill
Otte are starting for the first time
bears this out. As for the Panther
contest, Smith said "that the game
was the best team effort he had ever
seen by a High Point team The Pi-
rate coach has seen quite a few Panth-
er quints in action during his time.
Coach Smith went on to say "that we
just got beat and that is all there is
to it The Pirates lost the best
player in the Conference last season
in Ike Riddick, but with time and ex-
perience the Bucs should be a highly
competitive team for the remainder
of the season.
Captain Don Smith hit for 33 points
here Friday night in spearheading
the Pirates to a surprisingly easy
90-63 victory over once unbeaten
Lenoir Rhyne The Bucs were hot
hm the start, and did not resemble
the outfit who were beaten by High
Point a few days earlier.
Jumping off to a 21-8 lead, to the
amazement of the 2700 spectators,
the Pirates stunned the favored Bears.
The Hickory school could not recover
from the shock, and only once during
the early portion of the second half
did the visitors make a serious chal-
lenge. With rangy Jack Connerly
hitting for Lenoir Rhyne, the lead
was sliced to 38-34 at this point in
the most rugged fought contest. How-
ever, Cotton Clayton dazed the Bears
until they felt as if they were Cubs
by hitting for three straight field
goals in a matter of seconds.
This moved the lead to a ten point
spread, and with Smith hitting with
amazing accuracy on jump and hook
shots the game was turned into a
complete unexpected rout. With Clay-
ton, Charley Lewis, Bill Otte, Don
Smith, Ben Bowes, and Lacy West in
severe danger of fouling out Coach
Earl Smith substituted freely for the
home team.
Clayton who scored 14 points for
the night, played his usual fabulous
floor game, as the East Carolina play-
maker steadied the Pirate offense
marvelously, and as in other Buc con-
tests was equally as great on defense.
The big boys for the Pirates, Otte
6'6 Bowes 6'5 and Smith 6-5 ruled
the backboards.
Smiths 33 points was the highest
total by any Buc cageman thus far,
and the Pirate Captain definitely waa
the big difference in the two ball
clubs. East Carolina scored 65 of
their 90 points during the hard fought
second half which saw tension amount
heavily between several of the re-
spective ballplayers from both sides.
The win established the .Pirates, in
all probability, as the team to beat for
the North State League crown, de-
spite an earlier loss to High Point
College. Ooach Earl Smith's charges
lived up to their expected potential-
ity against the Bears, but the Hickory
school still will be a dangerous con-
tender for the remainder of the sea-

SMITH is seen here during an early
practice session. The Pirate mentor
is expecting big things from the Buc
five this Winter. The East Carolina
League record is 4 wins and one loss,
not including the Appalachian tilt,
which was played last night on the
Apps home court. The Pirates hope
to improve this record under the lead-
ership of their capable coach who
has guided the team to early success.
