congratulations
The mighty pigskin Pirates have received applause from
near and far for earning the bid to the Tangerine Bowl.
However, due to the Thanksgiving holiday, the East
Carolinian has yet to bestow its congratulations.
When Dr. Leo W. Jenkins announced this institution's
crash progress program and the beginning of E C's "big time"
athletic program, possibly even he had no conception that the
schorl would be this big . . . this soon.
When Coach Clarence Stasavich came to East Carolina,
bringing with him his brilliant record, possibly even he had
no idea that this schools sports would be this big . . . this
soon.
And when the Redmen of the University of Massachu-
setts meet the Pirates, possibly even they won't have realized
how big the P and G players can become so soon.
To Mr Stas the players and the many, many persons
making this wonderful event possible, the East Carolinian
offers its heartiest congratulations and a truckload of Tan-
gerines when vou overcome the Redmen from the North.

Letters To The
EDITOR
To The Editor: . , n.
Probably you have fi
aed an artjde .about Jg
train planned for the ,rSS
Bowl game. I am writing to express
the hope that somehow wecM bring
this proposal into the realm of real
itv
As I write this note, only about
25ckets have been sold, above the
135 or so covering transportat ions
for the Marching Band-end Me
the SGA for providing f"ndsJ?Jhft
EC might be nicely reoresented at
the Tangerine Bowl.
Unless some last-minute enthusi-
asm for the train develops, however
the 350 required tickets may not be
sold. Certainly Stt.40, to most stu-
dents is not chicken feed: but vve
must bear in mind that a l;00-mUe
round trip is bound to cost some-
thing! $31.40 is several dollars less
than regular fare from Rxcky Mount
to Orlando and back, and it is con-
siderably less than the required
for a seat on the proposed charter
plane. And the train affords time
and space to relax, to sleep to en-
joy refreshments in the club car,
and to become acquainted with tei-
Tow students. The drive from here
to Orlando, on the other hand, is a
grueling 15-hour ordeal, at best.
Route 17 from Savannah to Orlando
is two lanes with innumerable
curves, making passing practically
impossible because of its heavy
traffic. Route 301 is mostly two lanes,
also, with some segments under con-
struction. I speak from repeated ex-
perience. ,
Another point: imagine the put
licitv value, from Massachusetts to
Florida, of a special train from East
Carolina College to the Tangerine
Bowl game!
Sincerely yours.
Robert R. Morrison
Relieved and wonderful thanks are in order for the ad-
ministration, maintenance or whoever it was that, after much
due consideration (about a years worth), finally decided that
it was rime to extend the sidewalk in the Tenth Street parking
lot.
Alas' No longer must one trot gently through the mud
in order to partake of treasured knowledge gained in an eight
a.m. class.
Also there must be some mention of the beautiful job
now being done on the curve beside the Gymnaisum. Probab-
ly this too is due to much forethought the administration,
maintenance or whoever it was that devised this revised curve.
Previously, many of the modern "tiger-tanked" autos
found this curve barely comprehensible . . . even at the speeds
provoked bv much loved slow humps.
Thanks, thanks, thanks for these brilliantly calculated WofrV . hp RllCS
solutions to such magnanimous problems. ttivu i iw
There are, however, a few minor, yet interesting prob-
lems not yet dealt with by the administration, maintenance or
whoever it is . . . that cares for such matters. There is that
small problem of a sidewalk between the Gymnasium and
Rawl Building and that barely visible problem of parking
space for students and that minute problem of the ' cut
system Good luck to the administration, maintenance or
whoever it is in solving these problems.
TO THE STUDENT: Sing this article to the tune of
Holy, Holy, Holy and give your support to the administration,
maintenance or whoever it is . . .

tute of 1964 from the prostitute of

Having this question as its base
iv John Cleland delightfully re-
c counts the experiences of Fanny
Hill, a prostitute in 18th century
England
Supposedly written during the time
of Boswell and Pope, this novel has
more accent' than any of the recent
( temporary works. including
Terry Southern's Candy or even
Peyton Place.
The story, told by Fanny, is a
i eeoiiection of experiencedthose
(: a young naive English country
girl who is suddenly thrust into a
fast-paced industrial society of
lesbians, prostitutes, and fairies.
Descriptions of her experiences
and bed-mates are especially vivid,
possessing T. S. Eliot-like contrasts
to appeal to the stock responses.
With the same degree of emotion-
alism that the Birchers sing
America the Beautiful" this book
likewise possesses the same degree
of Baptist zeal, the them being
Sex the Beautiful
In addition to this basic contrast
appeal, the author employs sensual
adjectives and specks of humor.
Normally one attempts to tie the
?v Iv-exDosed with the already-ex-
perienced and present. In this case
two examples are immediately ob-
vin us. First, the Christine Keeler
incidentthe only thins lacking
:th Fanny being an international
scandal.
Secondly there is the modern day
East Carolin-a coed who has her
Greenville "Sugar Daddies" or the
over-anxious Freshman who strives
too hard 'by my standards to be
cepted. And thus, in over-striv-
ing destroys herself.
According to Mr. Edwards at the
Book Bnrn. this controversial book
is on the publishers "Black List"
and a number of court cases are
now pending.
One is led to question why is it
a controversial book. According to
Times there is not a "dirty word"
in the entire book.
Seemingly those who shout, "evil"
fear the influence it will have on
virgfa minds, for this book ouestions
basic v :lues. thus stimulating
THOUGHT.
Is society afraid to evaluate and
think about its values? Afraid, be-
cause many of the standards lack
a cement base of worthwhile values?
Whit ever the reason, the book is
definitely classified as questionable
and or debatable.
News from a UNC Ed is that if
a Carolina coed wants to establish
a datable image, she sits on the
Pine Room steps, reading Fanny
Hill. Maybe the library or Union
steps EC coeds?

Anyway, if you want to read
about the Memoirs of a Woman of
Pleasure. Jack Edwards expects to
have in a large supply shortly. Be
sure to stop by and get your per-
sonal paperback copy! Who knows,
maybe it'll help you in some
course?

The subject of alcoholic beverages
has fascinated writers since the
days of the stone tablet and chisel.
As a result, there exists a large
amount of lore about its use. For
5.000 years, at least, a man has al-
ways had something handy to offer
his friends when they drop inbe it
mead, wine, beer, whiskey, gin or
vodka.
How much do you know about al-
coholic beverages? In this 16-ques-
tion quiz prepared by the makers
of Wolfschmidt Vokda, old and new
facts may provide you with some
ice-breakers for your next cocktail
party:
1. Stone Age man was a tee-
totaler.
False. According to archeologists,
the later Stone Age man drank
wine and beer. The "brewer before
baker" theory holds that he learned
to use grain for beer before he
learned how to make bread with it.
2. In early human societies, the
task of making the drinks was al-
ways entrusted to the women.
False. Women were sometimes
barred from the preparation of al-
coholic beverages. The custom of
the man's mixing the drinks may
be our oldest surviving social cus-
tom.
3. Wages have sometimes been
paid off in drinks.
True. A clay tablet dating from
3000 B. C. and found in Mesopotamia
turned out to be a cuneiform "pay-
roll When deciphered, it gave the
names of persons who were entitled
to beer and bread for the day.
4. The first liquor manufactured
in the American Colonies was on
Staten Island.
True. William Kieft, Director -Gen-
eral of the Netherlands, established
a distillery there around 1640. It
was taken over by the British in
1664. along with the other Dutch
possessions in America. The Dutch
made gin and brandy there, but
the British converted its facilities
to the distillation of rum.
5. The first Kentucky whiskey was
made by a Baptist clergyman.
True. He was Elijah Craig, who
first made it at Royal Spring, Ken-
tucky, in 1789.
6. The more alcohol in the liquor,
the better your chances are of hav-
ing a hangover.
False. Alcohol isn't what gives
you a hangoverit's the impurities
in the alcohol, the "congeners
that do it. This is why liquors with
few congeners, like vodka, are least
likely to give you a hangover. Fur-
thermore, as the makers of Wolf-
schmidt vodka point out, vodka af-
fects a person's breath less than
ether aucoholic beverages. And it
mav surprise you to learn that
vodka has no more alcohol than
most other common drinks.
7. To be labeled "Scotch" a whis-
kev must come from Scotland.
False. But scotch whiskey that's
not from Scotland must have
"scotch tvpe whiskey" on the label.
Hen' Scotch whiskey requires a
longer aging period than domestic
whiskeyseven or eight years. It is
sometimes as many as 12 in the
case of Chivis Regal Scotch. A do-
mestic whiskey may reach maturity
in orolv two years.
8. Americans drink as much rye
whiskey as blends.
False. Hardly anyone drinks rye
whiskey, mainly because very little
of it is made. When someone "orders
'rye almost invariablv he means
blended whiskey, which is made
from rye. The grains that so into
biended whiskey, as well as bourbon
v.hiskey are, for the most part,
corn.
9. A whiskey that is 86 proof has
43 per cent alcohol by volume.
True. Each degree of "proof"
means half a per cent of alcohol bv
volume. Th- word "proof" comes
from the way whiskey was tested
m ancient times. Gunpowder was
added to the spirits, then a flame
and if the mixture didn't ignite it
was proved too weak: if it burned
too brightly, it was proved too
strong.
10. The proof of thp midding should
be high if you're going to flame it.
True. Ronrico, known for its light-
bodied. 86 proof White and Gold
Label rums, also makes a 151 proof
Purple Label rum which it recom-
mends especially for flaming. With
Purple Label, say its makers, you
can even flame ice creamor pre-
pare Cherries Jubilee at the table
using a casserole over a candle
warmer! In many cases, you'll
need only half as much Purple
Label as would be required of an-
other rum or another liquor such
as brandy. Other Ronrico sugges-
tions: a flaming rum omelette for
a midnight supper: for a spectacular
entree, lobster or shrimp in a pine-
apple-coconut sauce which is flam-
ed with rum at the table just be-
fore serving.
11 The martini was named for a
man named Martini.
False. His nam? was Alejandro
Martinez. Some 60 years ago he
was drinking a strange concoction
made of gin and vermouth, and got
a reputation for it. Bartenders
when a patron didn't know what to
order, suggested "one of Mr. Mar-
tinez drinks And that's how the
zebra got his stripes.
IS. The manhattan was not invent-
ed in Manhattan.
False. It was. in 1874 a pre-
magural ball was held for New
York's Governor-elect Samuel J
TiJden at the Manhattan Club on
16th Street. The bartender invented
the manhattan 'whiskey, sweet ver-
mouth and aromatic' bitters in
honor of the occasion.
13. All American states now per-
mit the sale of liquor.
False. In Mississippi, it's still
illegal.
14. The best Champagne is old
Champagne.
False. The recommended guide:
the number and smallness of the
bubbles. In general, voung Cham-
pagnes are best10 years old or so
-because they still have high car-
bon ation. and what would Cham-
pagne be without bubbles?
15. Absinthe - no longer obtain-
able today.
False. Though banned in France
because it contained too much al-
ehol, it is now drunk under the
name of Pernodalmost the same
as absinthe, but with less alcholo.
Actually, the worst thing about ab-
s nthe is that it inspired what is
perhaps the most atrocious pun
every punned, to wit: "Absinthe
makes the heart grow fonder

a pledge period of eight weeks.
During this period the pledges
learned much about their sorority,
its history and their responsibilities,
and completed both civic and so-
cial projects. At a Thanksgiving
Dinner Thursday night, the Nu
pledges presented the sisters their
gifts, chapter directories, bound in
the colors and bearing the Greek
letters of Sigma.

Magazine Article Asks
About Students' Sanity
By Hen Sutton And Carrie Tyson
For our column this week, we be- by -imperatively
gin with an article from Sarajane
Lebowitz, the Press Editor for
Mademoiselle. She gave it the title:
More Students Seek Professional
Counseling We wholeheartedly
recommend :t to you.
To bring this more to an East
Carolina level, the guidance offices
are set up with you. the student, in
mind. Dr. YVeigand and Mrs. Fick-
en will be more than happy to
help you so you may better help
yourself.
Are American college students
rapidly "cracking up"?" queries a
recent article in Mademoiselle
magazine, "Swept with Confused
Alarms: The Psychological Climate
on Campus" by Rita Hoffmann.
Ten to fifteen per cent of college
students are already using the na-
tion's college counseling services
land, according to Dr. Leon J.
Saul, psychiatric consultant at
Swarthmore college, 'another ten to
fifteen per cent should be using
them. In an attempt to discover
which students seek av&dlable help,
why they seek it. and what happens
to those who turn to other sources,
the magazine canvassed a nation-
wide sampling of colleges.
A common "disease" among wo-
men students is known on some
campuses as "the flops She can
do nothing but flopon her bed,
or the nearest available space. She
does not sleep; she cannot study or
even concentrate on a book she her-
self wants to read. She smokes,
nibbles food, converses, resolves to
study, then moves on to a new
flopping place. The major prob-
lems, like "the flops have to do
with what is known ias "the identity
crisis The concept, so named by
Dr. Erffi H. Erikson. internationally
known psychiatrist, has already be-
come an over-simplified catch-
phrase which, roughtly, concerns
the search for answers to three
basic questions: Who am I? Where
shah I go? How shall I get there?
Su-colled sexual problems often
turn out to be just one among many
symptoms which may have more to
do with conformity or a craving for
emotional warmth than with sex.
The change in sex mores provides
the more exaggerated and spectac-
ular symptoms but equally disturb-
ing to 'at least one college psychia-
trist, Dr. Lester Sonta? of Antioch,
is "the increase in the number of
flat personalities I encounter"
persons whom people neither like
nor dislike, with no emontional re-
sonance, who seldom can communi-
cate beyond banalities.
Since there has been no drastic
increase during the past decade in
psychotic breakdowns or suicides
among college students, why are
there so many seeking counsel? In
a limited society, where individual
choice is narrowly restricted by
church or state, life is simplifed
clear-cut boun-
daries of choice. A free society
such as ours, by offering a wide,
almost unrestricted range of choice
also provides fertile ground for the
neuroses of doubt and indecision.
In addition, colleges seem to feel
tin ! to iiid students in making the
choices is a part of their responsi-
.v as educators, both to the stu-
dent and to society. As a result
counseling facilities have increased
and mroe students may simply be
taking advantage of what is avail-
able. Therefore there may be no
actual increase in the number of
disturbed students.
Many of those who hesitate to
seek counsel do so because of the
smail-community lack of anonymity
of a cdiege campus. They are
afraid that their outpouring will
leak to the Dean's office or on to
official records. Many, equally mis-
taken, fear that therapy will "flat-
Mi them out' 'to be well-adjusted
robots, which is quite the opposite
of the intentions of psychiatry.
There remains some doubt that
clinics are helpful or necessary be-
yond the need to handle psychotic
breakdowns. Subjective evaluations
do, however, seem to indicate the
positive value of therapy. As one
ex-dent put it, "If your emotional
problems get in the way to much,
you just can't make it from your
freshman to your senior year
Judging from a survey taken by
Mademoiselle magazine ("College
SmokingHow Come Nobody's
Stopped?" by Mary Ann Guitar,
August, 1964) the Surgeon General's
report has not substantially affect-
ed the smoking habits of college
undergraduates. Why not? Neither
smokers nor non-smokers opposed
cigarettes per se. The attitude was
pretty much live and let live, or.
die and let die: suicide is a pri-
vate affair. Their reaction to the
cancer threat was off-hand. Both
groups caime up with a number of
explanations and rationalizations

directions tnis movemen.has taken
is the resurrection of folk-singing.
The parents of today's teenagers
grew up during the 20 s and 30s and
probably had very little contact wh
folk songs. An occwnai cnorusof
-Clementine" or "She'll be Conrun
Round the Mountain" was the ex-
tent of their experience.
Today folk music fc back-and1 s
bigger than ever. On radio and tele-
vision, on single records and lung-
Playing albums, in personal PP'
ances on college campuses in big
city auditoriums and small lodge
halls groups of singers are enter-
turning audiences with hootenaniues.
At the present time, there are only
four manufacturers in the United
States producing banjos. This instru-
ment has become so popular durin&
the past twelve months that the ban-
jo-makers have been unable to meet
the demand. According to Sears,
banjo and guitar sales increased 90
to 100 per cent in 1963.
Folk singing is. of course, not
new While it is now considered an
American art. it had two main
streams of origin.
The Anglo-Saxon tradition was im-
ported from Great Britain and nor-
thern Europe, and was responsible
for most of our ballads and lyric
folk songs.
Later, the African tradition was
added. This group is credited with
the blues, the work songs, and the
ever-popular minstrel tunes.
To all of these songs was added

tion to folk singing: the choral re-
frain.
How did the term "hootenanny"
originate? Some believe it came
from a boisterous female folk sing-
er of many years ago who picked
up the nickname ,lHoot:n Annie
If Hootin' Annie were alive today,
a glance at the Hit Parade, the 'Top
40 the "Hot 100" or any other
rating method would show her that
there are now scores of popular folk
songs and artists in this "modern"
music field that's named after her.
Thousands of professionals are now
making a good income in a field
that could hardly support a handful
of "pros" thirty years ago.
More important than the profes-
sional aspect, there are now hun-
dreds of thousands of non-profes-
sional banjo players, guitar play-
ers, and singers who have found these
traditional songs a means of self-
expression in today's world.
Even a beginner can be plunking
