Committee sparks Ficklen drive
Staff Writer
The fund drive fa the expan-
sion of ECU's Ficklen Stadium is
underway and going well, accord-
ing to Dr. Clinton Prewett,
campus chairman of the Ficklen
Stadium Expansion Campaign.
The drive, originally set to
begin in late August, was delayed
because the campaign's commit-
tee had difficulty finding a
chairman for the Pitt County,
Greenville area, said Cliff Moore,
campaign treasurer and vice-
chancellor of Business Affairs at
"Ray Minges was contacted
and he agreed to head the area
campaign after completing other
obligations said Moore.
"The tentative date for fulfill-
ment of the goal of $2.5 million,
January 1. 1977. is virtually
impossible now due to the
delay said Moore.
"The drive, now two weeks
old, has netted $300,000 in cash
and pledges according to
The drive has also received
services other than financial aid
from the community.
"All of the architectural and
planning work has been comple-
ted free of charge said Prewett.
"The expansion is necessary
now because of the continuing
rise in the cost of labor mater-
ials said Moore.
"When the first section of
seating at Ficklen was construc-
ted in 1971, the cost was
$250,000. This included the press
"One year later, the same
number of seats without the press
box costs $600,000. The proposed
expansion, which will be approxi-
mately the same number of seats
as are now in the stadium, will
cost $2.5 million
According to Moore, schedul-
ing major football teams in
Ficklen Stadium now would be a
financial disaster.
Atlantic Coast Conference
teams require $45,000 assured for
a football game said Moore.
"We don't have enough seats to
make that much
About 9,000 seats in the
present stadium are used by
non-student paying customers,
according to Moore.
"We made $80,000 last year
at N.C. State and approximately
$100,000 this year according to
"We could make twice that
much if we could schedule major
area teams in Greenville said
Increased revenues isn't the
only reason for expanding the

athletics at ECU is to create a

The Homecoming Steering

Student Union, the programming arm on campus
whose self-proclaimed nonpditical nature led it to
oppose the recently proposed SGA Constitution, was
knocked off its partisan feet Wednesday during an
emergency meeting of the Homecoming Steering
That body, set up several years ago at the behest of
Chancellor Jenkins, is charged with the task of
coordinating all university sponsored entertainment
during Homecoming Week. The presidents of the
Interfraternity Council, Panhellenic, Women's and
Men's Residence Councils, SOULS, the editor of
FOUNTAINHEAD and various representatives from
the University administration are on the committee.
Also included are the presidents of the Student Union
and the Student Government Association between
whom a battle has raged since June when a suggestion
was made fa additional entertainment Homecoming
SGA President Tim Sullivan initiated the proposal
because he believed the Count Basie concert
Saturday, October 30, would not draw students away
from the downtown area where a repeat of the
Halloween night disturbance like those of the last two
years is feared.
Barry Robinson, Student Union President, con-
tended that the prediction for overcrowding and
trouble downtown Saturday night, the night before
Halloween this year, was questionable and that any
further entertainment scheduled for that night would
cut into receipts for the Basie concert.
Prior to the meeting Wednesday the Union led the
fight against giving the SGA authority to sponsor
additional entertainment and convinced the Home-
ooming Committee it would be setting a dangerous
precedent to do so. The committee thus ignored
warnings by city officials that another disturbance was
probable Saturday night after the Homecoming
football game unless action was taken by some agency
of the University to divert crowds awav from
But the tide reversed in the latest Homecoming
Committee meeting and Sullivan's offer of $5,000
contingent upon the Legislature's approval - of SGA
money for another Saturday night concert was
accepted. The Union was forced to accept the fact that
programming without political considerations, that is
scheduling events that are not popular with or in the
best interest of at least a plurality of the student body,
cannot be tolerated on this campus.

To Fountainhead:
Recently, remarks have ap-
peared in the FOUNTAINHEAD
which, while correctly noting the
value of the expansion of Ficklen
Stadium to the Greenville area,
have questioned the benefit of the
stadium expansion to the Univer-
sity. I would like to call attention
to the significant benefits of the
stadium expansion to the stu-
dents, faculty, and academic
programs of the University.
East Carolina University com-
petes with some3,000 institutions
of higher education in the United
States for students, faculty, and
financial support. In such com-
petition, particularly among in-
stitutions otherwise closely com-
parable, the degree of name
identification of the University is
a significant factor. Other things
being equal, students and faculty
members prefer to be associated
with institutions whose names are
known to themselves heir com-
munities, and to the public
throughout the country. For sim-
ilar reasons, corporations and
businesses are more generous in
their donations to the academic
programs of well known institu-
tions. Further, alumni pride,
loyalty and support increase as
their institution becomes more
widely known.
An NCAA Division I football
classification, with the attendant
publicity resulting from games
with nationally recognized
schools, is an important advant-
age in the competition fa name
identification among institutions
of higher learning. Perhaps some
would argue that this would not
be the case in an ideal world-but
in this world, it is the case. The
expansion of Ficklen Stadium is
essential to gaining that advant-
age. The potential benefits to the
students, faculty, and academic
programs of the University are
significant: (1) Facilitation of
recruitment of well qualified
students and faculty members;
(2) Facilitation of job placement of
graduates through association
with a well-known institution;
(3) Encouragement of alumni
loyalty and support for the
programs of the University; (4)
An increase in business and
industry support of University
academic and scholarship pro-
grams, (5) and, in addition, the
fun of being part of major athletic
competition, whether as a player
or a spectator. The fund drive for
the expansion of Ficklen Stadium,
therefore, is worthy of support by
all members of the University

Athletics not overemphasized
To Fountainhead:
In your letter Tuesday to
ham and friends, you said that
ECU athletics were the only thing
emphasized by the administra-
tion. Then you turned around and
said funds were denied for a new

Rehabilitation center
to open in Greenville
Staff Writer
The Greenville Regional Re-
habilitation Center, authorized by
the 1971 N.C. General Assembly
at an estimated $1.9 million
construction cost, will open a-
round Easter, 1977, according to
Dave McRae director.
The center part of Pitt County
Memorial Hospital, will become
the final center in a statewide
system of five regional centers
and one state institute. This will
beg in rehabilitation care to within
75 to 100 miles of anyone in the
This system is unique in the
United States because it not only
increases availability of facilities
but also provides total patient
care which deals with the real
problems faced by the handicap-
ped, according to McRae.
"A good example of this is
that we have to send all of our
severely disabled people to the
Whitaker Care Center in Winston
Salem said McRae. "The fam-
ily lives here and the patient is
sent some 200 miles away. So
many of the problems to be
treated are more than just
medical. They are dealing with
emotions, the family, and how the
patient looks at the world and how
he will be motivated to function
Amendments to the Federal
Vocational Rehabilitation Act in
1967, stimulated by increased
nationwide federal funding that
went from $50 million to $550
million yearly during the decade,
resulted in a full time state
planning section and a two year
study on the needs of the handi-
capped. From information
gathered in this study the 1969
General Assembly authorized the
state department of rehabilitation
to conduct in-depth planning fa
the establishment of facilities. Dr.
Sheldon Downes, of the Rehabili-
tation department at ECU was
appointed a member of the
committee to head the study.
"The advisory committee was
composed of a variety of profes-
sionals said Downes. ' We
decided the best way to find out
what rehabilitation centers need-
ed would be to visit the finest
centers across the country
The committee also held pub-
lic meetings in major communi-
ties across the state. Their
findings, published in a final
report on rehabilitation in North
Carolina, reported that there was
no effective help available in the

No increase in two years
Campus crime rate stabilizing
News Editor
The crime rate at ECU in the
past two years has not increased
as fast as on other college
campuses, acooramg to Joseph
H. Calder. ECU director of
Security and Traffic.
"The number one problem
facing university public service
organizations nationwide is the
fantastic growth of crime on
campus since approximately
1970 said Calder.
According to Calder, petty
larceny and violent crimes such as
rape and aggravated assault have
not increased at ECU as they have
on larger campuses.
At ECU, the rate of petty
thievery is pretty stable said
"We really don't have any
violent crime on the campus
property either
Calder said the last violent
on-campuscrime wasa rape three
years ago.
"We haven't even really had
any aggravated assaults.
"From 1970 to 1976, petty
larceny mushroomed on college
campuses in general and violent
crimes skyrocketed
Calder attributed the increase
in crimes on most campuses to
the large number of college drop-
outs who remained around col-
lege towns after the protest days
of the late '60's.
Calder said ECU did not
experience a serious increase in
crimes in the early '70s as did
many campuses.
According to the Property File
Record of the campus police, the
number of petty crimes has
generally not increased over last
However, there has been an
increase in the theft of certain
negotiable items.
275 thefts were reported
between January '75 and
September '75 while only 264
have been reported this year.
Thefts recorded in these re-
cords include such items as
appliances, building supplies,
guns, radios, televisions, and
tape players.
According to records in the
security office, however, there
has been an increase in the
number of auto thefts this year.
Three cars have been stolen since
Drug charges seem to be on
the decrease with no arrests on
record this year as opposed to
According to James M.Camp-
bell, assistant professor of cor-
rections and socia, work, crime on
campus can be divided into two
groups which he calls Part 1 and
Part 2 offenses.
According to Campbell, the
apprehension rate for campus
crimes is approximately 18 per
cent for burglaries and 24 percent
for larcenies.
A map indicating the location
of campus crimes between
January '76 and March '76 was
constructed by a corrections class
under Campbell's direction.
According to the map, the
greatest number of crimes hes
occurred between Greene, White,
Fletcher, Clement, and Garrett
These crimes consisted mostly
of larcenies.
However, there were eight
cases of breaking and entering
Calder said that approximate-
ly the same number of police are
assigned to each beat on campus,
but that several officers are
usually around the girls' dorm
According to Campbell, the
stabilization of on-campus crimes
might just be a one-year pheno-
menon, or it might be due to
police efforts.
"We would hope that our
services have helped hold crime
in check, but we really don't know
why it stabilized said Eddings.

The frequency of bicycle
thefts remains high on campus,
accading to campus police files.
129 bicycles were repated

that they are so highly negoti-

Eddings noted the great num-
ber of thefts of citizen band (CB)
radios and tape decks.
CB theft has inaeased 300 per
cent since last year, accading to
the Property File Recad.
Eddings said a maja problem
faced by the security department
is keeping unauthaized persons
out of damitaies.
"If dam occupants would
repat these people as soon as
they spot them, then it would cut
down on the number of thefts.
"There are a lot of non-stu-
dents committing crimes ac-

Eddings added that students

lum recording star JUDY COL-
LINS on Thursday, October 21, at
8.00 p.m. in Minges Coliseum.
Judy Collins has a quicksilver
way of defying definitions. Just as
soon as you thing you have
figured out who she is and what
she does, she changes directions
and adds new dimensions and
surprises. In the early 1960's she
made her first two albums for
Elektra, Maid of Constant Sorrow
and Golden Apples of the Sun,
that brought her wide critical
acclaim. Then, with the release of
Judy Collins 3, Time Magazine
called her "a major contender for
the female folk crown
With her next three albums,
Judy Collins In Concert, Judy
Collins 5, and In My Life, Judy
transformed herself entirely into
an unparalleled artist who could
not be confined by the term,
Judy added a new dimension
to her life with the release of
Wildf lowers. She became a song-
writer. The album oontained the
first two songs she ever compos-
fi Since that time, every new
Collins album has contained at
least one and as many as five of
her own songs.

Flick stars Bisset and Nolte
Crew of 'The Deep' immersed in filming
8y8flflR LEIVS
Jacqueline Bisset's hair was
tousled as she sat shivering in a
wet suit. Nick Nolte sat next to
her, fingering the newly acquired
scars that cover his body. The two
had just emerged from the most
unusual movie set ever construc-
ted, 30 feet beneath the surface of
what may be the world's largest
salt-water swimming pool.
Bisset and Nolte are co-star-
ring in Peter Benchiey's, "The
Deep being filmed in Bermuda
after two months shooting 80-feet
below the suiface of the Virgin
Island's crystal clear waters.
Most of the filming is done
underwater, eliminating the need
for a hairdresser and makeup
artist. But they are the only two
members of a normal crew not
participating in the underwater
scenes, which require all person-
nel to be proficient divers.
Neither Bisset nor Nolte knew
how to dive before signing fa
their roles. Other members of the
cast and crew were selected not
only for their cinematic talents
but for their ability to work
underwater fa extended periods
of time.
A special underwater lighting
system and camera are operated
by technicians wearing tanks and
masks. The directa, Peter Yates,
directs using hand signals chaeo-
graphed with the cast and aew
befae each scene is submerged.
Even the script girl waks under-
water, using a slate and grease
pencil to take naes.
Writers invited to the location
are given instant scuba lessons so
they can observe the filming
underwater. The instructa is the
same diver who tutaed Bisset
and Nolte in a sharkless Holly-
wood swimming pool.
Nolte finds the experience
both challenging and awesome.
He and Bisset found themselves
in the midst of a school of sharks
while doing a scene in the Virgin
Islands. While the two were
adered to the surface slowly, to
avoid the bends phaographers
shot away with both their cameras
and spear guns, getting unexpec-
ted footage.
There are more hazards than
sharks, however. Nolte has had
problems with caal burns
that sting and scar. Bisset
developed a severe head cold that
prevented her from diving and
altered the shooting sequence.
There are some dry scenes set in
Bermuda, and these were shot
until Bisset got over her sniffles.
The pia is loosely based on an
actual event. Benchiey, who
authaed "Jaws the most com-
mercially successful film of all
time , went on a diving vacation
in the Virgin Islands after comple-
ting the shark saga. Apparently,

Heavy metal capsules
Staff Writer
Four tough guys that play
punk rock to its limit. What I
mean by ' punk rock' is that style
of short, uncomplicated riffs that
Aerosmith used to play.
The Ramones play in a tough
nightclub on the bowery in New
York City. The name of the
nightclub is CBGB, and most of
the new hard rock bands are
coming out of it.
These guys only play three
chords through the whole album,
but it's how they deliver them
that makes this a non-stop rocker.
Each song is only three minutes
long and one song seems to fuse
into the next. This heavy metal
madness goes on until someone
cuts the tape off in what seems to
be mid-stroke. This is the end
of side one.
Side two begins with much of
the same and plows through until
its climax comes with "Today
Your Love, Tomorrow the
World which is about a drunken
Nazi being pushed around.
I had an argument with a
friend of mine that side one of this
album is harder than side two.
His opinion is just the reverse.
Whichever you decide, I'm sure
you'll enjoy their music and their
rics. One of my favorites is
'Loudmouth and it goes as
You're a loudmouth baby;
You'd better shut it up,
I'm gonna beat you up.
Cause you're a loudmouth
Leather jacket optional.
The Cult has come out with a
new album, Agents of Fortune,
and it's different than anything
they've ever done. Isn't that just
like Blue Oyster Cult to change
and improve their music every
album? This band, in my opinion,
can not get any tighter or else
they'll have an explosion.
Some people don't like this
album. These same people don't
like anything after Tyranny &
Mutation (which was their first
basic change). I myself was one of
these people until I slowly came
around to how good their 3rd
album, Secret Treaties, is.
Agents of Fortune is not that
radical a change from their 3rd
album, but it is from their 2nd.
Therefore, the people that didn't
like their 3rd album like their
present album less.
Blue Oyster Cult is a band of
changes and probably will con-
tinue changing. This is one
reason why this band has not
burned themselves out after two
albums, like the other hard rock
bands do.
This is not the Cult's best
album, but it is an important one.
If you still like the Cult after their
second album, (although I like
them all,) I think you should pick
this up. I can't wait to see what
BOC is gonna do on their next
album. The future of rock' n roll is
Blue Oyster Cult.
Boston is a group that has no
overground notoriety (which is
explained on the back cover).
These guys have the energy, but
they don't have that special
something that separates them
from the mire of other rock bands,
I don't want to make the
impression that this is a bad
album. It's not. It's just not
outstanding or unique.
I like the opening song (which
is an FM hit) 'More than the
Feeling I must also oommend
the drummer for excellent playing
The lead player jams well, too.
On side two, the organ seems
a little unnecessary. I feel the
organ should emphasize the
music as it has done to full effect
on the first two R.E.O. Speed-
wagon albums.
If you want to hear some good
funk from Boston, look up
Stepson, an album released a
year ago that beats this tea party.

Trends Editor
In case you have had the good fortune not to notice, this is midterm
week. For me, this is the week when all of my gripes about teachers,
courses, and the world in general seem to combine, forming one big
black cloud of despair.
My only consolation in my misery is the knowledge that I am not
alone, that I share this frustration with the way things are with so many
others, friends, strangers and enemies alike.
Even as I write this, the Fountainhead office is a veritable zoo of
people in misery, airing their differences in frustrations in multiple
ways. Over at the news desk, they're wondering if journalism and
schizophrenia really do mix. The business manager is stretched across
her desk, trying in vain to make up for the two days of lost sleep she
needs so desperately.
Our sports staff is baring their teeth and frothing at the mouth as a
certain former sports editor brags blithely about the fact that he is out of
school. My fellow Trends worker is trying without success to keep his
eyes from crossing and uncrossing. The people who have maintained any
semblance of sanity are our typist receptionist, who is not in school to
begin with (damn her!), and our "Senior Editor who feels he should
present a facade of calm strength at all times (but we all know that he
makes frequent retreats to his office for a session of crying into his
security blanket).
The office is not the only place where this feeling of mad desperation
prevails. Back in the dorm, the girls have all been staying up throughout
the night studying, comforting themselves with (among other things)
pictures of their boyfriends, dreams of graduation, Hostess Twinkies,
and trips to the Riggs House.
My main communication with the girls in these busy times oomes in
that great meeting place, the bathroom. We all have to go there from
timetotime, and we've found that our "stall sessions" are a good way
to keep up with each other without wasting any extra time. We've
thought about adding graffitti to those dull pine doors, but none of us
have the energy to inscribe anything lasting.
Okay, so there are some of you out there who aren't having such a
bad week. My first impulse is to degrade you for not studying, to
lambast you for getting intoa crip major, or fa staying in general college
fa seven years. But I am a good person, and I can toss aside all of those
hostile feelings (GROWL!) I will, however, tell you a little of what you're
You have obviously never had a teacher assign a 40-page paper the
day after drop-add ended. You've never been faoed to spend 13 hours
pondering the possibilities of "thought in 17th century Rhodesia " Why,
I'll bet you've never even taken a oourse in the anthropological
background of Patuguese tail-less cats.
I know that the non-sufferers are relatively few, that most of you are
in the same boat I'm in. The only advice I can offer is the thought that
seems to run constantly through my wan mind what's wrong with
waking at K-Mart a digging ditches? At least there's a quitting time to
those careers.

Pirates look for third

Appalachian-Furman tie
puts ECU in loop lead
Furman's surprise 14-14 tie
with Appalachian State last week-
end has put East Carolina in the
carseat for the Southern Con-
ference title in their last year in
the league.
The tie dropped Appalachian
to 1-0-1 in the conference and
helped to give ECU a little
breathing room in the oonferenoe
race. What's more, the Pirates
get a chance to widen that lead
when they play the VMI Keydets
in Lexington this weekend. The
Keydets are 1-2 in SC play and
1-4 for the season after falling to
Virginia Tech 37-7 last week.
And with nothing but non-
league encounters on their sche-
dule after VMI until Nov. 13 the
Pirates appear the team to beat.
From Appalachian State's
standpoint, it could be an uphill
battle. The Mountaineers, who
were picked to be ECU'S closest
contender, lost quarterback Rob-
bie Price for the second time this
season when he was injured in the
first quarter against Furman.
Without the services of Price in
the second half the Apps failed to
score on four drives inside the
Furman eight.
That was the only interoon-
ference game which counted in
the standings last week, and the
ECU-VMI contest makes the only
loop encounter this week.

Sideline Chat
with Steve Wheeler
When teams such as Texas, Alabama, and Oklahoma started running
the wishbone offense back in the late sixties, teams were awed by the
yardage churned out by these powers.
Then, as assistant ooachesat these schools started migrating to head
coaching jobs around the country, more and more teams began using the
But. as more teams were using the wishbone, defenses started
finding ways to slow the running attack, sometimes stop it.
Teams running the' Bone' still average more yards per game than do
teams running the I' or pro' T, but the difference is narrowing year by
One reason isthat more schools not having players with the ability to
run offense are trying to anyhow.
To run the formation, a team must have a oombination of quality
players, with quickness being the biggest asset.
The quarterback must be very quick on his feet and sure-handed. To
carry out the oomplete wishbone option the quarterback must fake to the
fullback up the middle and either hand off to the first deep back through
or the dive off tackle or run parallel to the line of scrimmage with the
option of pitching to the trailing back or cutting upfield himself.
The fullback must be big, strong and durable as he takes as hard a hit
on a fake in the middle of the line as he does when he has the ball.
The two deep running backs must possess tremendous quickness to
hit the hole quick on the tackle dive and to elude defenders on the wide-
The offensive line is the backbone of any offense and this is
especially true in the wishbone. Mammoth size is not as important as
line speed and quickness in the wishbone. The linemen must be quick
enough to shoot off the line of scrimmage when the ball is snapped to
open holes in the defense.
East Carolina's offensive unit fits these descriptions perfectly.
Mike Weaver is one of the top wishbone quarterbacks in the nation,
while Raymond Jones has been a bruising fullback all season. Willie
Hawkins and Eddie Hicks are probably the two best deep backs in one
backfield in the country this year.
The offensive line, consisting of tight end Clay Burnett, tackles Ricky
Bennett and Matt Mulhdland, guards Wayne Bolt and Randy Parrish,
and center Tim Hightower are called by Pirate coach Pat Dye "Six
Screaming Bullets" for their speed off the ball.
And when the running attack is clicking Weaver can sometimes slip a
bomb in to speedy split receiver Terry Gallaher.
The Pirates are so effective offensively that they are fourth in the
nation in rushing offense, sixth in scoring offense and 16th in total
The Pirates have run up against defenses this year that slowed
certain parts of its wishbone but no one has shot the running game down
Against Southern Miss, the deep backs were most successful taking
pitches from the quarterbacks and churning out big gains. The deep
backs averaged 11.3 yards per carry in that game, with Eddie Hicks
gaining 133 and Wi'lie Hawkins 128.
State held the Pirates to 256 yards rushing, which was balanced
among the fullbacks, quarterbacks and halfbacks.
William and Mary stopped the quarterback cut by Weaver
completely, but Raymond Jones gained 109 yards at fullback and the
halfbacks picked up 107.
Weaver ran well against the Citadel, gaining 103 yards.
The Southern Illinois game produced three hundred yard rushers in
Hicks (172), Hawkins (112) and Pete Conaty (103). The Pirates ran so
well outside the fullbacks carried just four times.
The season has produced seven individual century mark rushers in
just five games, three more than all of last season.
The deep backs have averaged 6.4 yards per carry this season, with
Hicks having 402 yards and Hawkins 383 to date.
Fullbacks have been getting 4.1 yards per clip so far, with Jones' 252
leading the way.
Quarterbacks have accounted for 3.6 yards per rushing attempt,
Weaver getting 236 yards and Conaty 107.

Weaver making best of last year
Staff Writer
Time is running out on Mike
Weaver's football career.
At 170 pounds and being a
college wishbone quarterback,
the Williamston native doesn't
stand much of a chance of playing
professional football after his
playing days at ECU are over.
"Of course I'd like to play in
the pros said Weaver. "I think
every oollege player does. But I'm
positive that I won't play and
know nobody is looking at me in
those terms
But Weaver still has six and
possibly seven games remaining
as the quarterback for ECU'S
wishbone. He can accomplish a
lot of things in that time-per-
sonally and as a member of the
ECU football team.
As a matter of fact, Weaver
has already become the fourth-
leading passer in ECU history, is
ranked seventh in total career
offense and is tenth among the
ECU career rushers.
"I don't wrry about those
type of things says Weaver.
"In fact, I didn't know all that
stuff was true. Sometimes I'll do
2-0-1 in league
well, sometimes I won't, that's

One of their best defensive
players is John Willison, a 6-3,

named national defensive player
of the week for his performance
against Virginia Tech two years
ago. The tackles are 6-4, 245
pound Ned Stepanovich and 6-3,
237 pound Dutch Goddard. The
other linebacker, Glen Jones,
started against ECU last year and
played well. In the secondary,
Bob McQueen, who has played
against ECU for the past three
seasons, is the top performer.
The Pirates offense which will
go against this mystery VMI
defense includes in the line center
Tim Hightower, guards Wayne
Bolt and Randy Parrish, tackles
Matt Mulholland and Ricky Ben-
nett, tight end Clay Burnett, and
split end Terry Gaiiaher. In the
backfield are fullback Raymond
Jones and halfbacks Eddie Hicks
and Willie Hawkins behind
quarterback Mike Weaver. Pete

fensive player of the week fa his
performance against SIU last
Saturday, should also Dlay some

Following the same pattern as
their defense, the VMI offense
runs a number of different plays
from a number of differnt form-
ations, but they will not cause the
ECU defense quite as much
trouble because there is some
recognition factor.
Offensively, VMI's key play-
ers are wide receiver Johnny
Garnett, who "has good hands
and runs real good patterns
according to Anderson; and
quarterback Robbie Clark. Run-

expected to see action at end. The

Bill Keyes raps with Gale Sayers
Editor's Note: Gale Sayers was
one of the premier players in the
National Football League as a
Chicago Bears running back.
Since his retirement from the
NFL, he has worked as assistant
athletic director at the University
of Kansas and this fall began his
first year as athletic director at
Southern Illinois University.
Before the kickoff of the

Sayers stood in the Ficklen
Stadium press box watching the
Oklahoma-Texas game on TV.
But he took time out for this
conversation with FOUNTAIN-
HEAD'S Bill Keyes.
biggest difference between col-
lege and professional football?
SA YERS: The size and speed of
the players, and the quality of the
players throughout the whole
team. In pro ball, you have
quality players at every position.
You know they're all among the
best at their positions.
Also, the quality of the
competition. Every team in the
NFL is tough. You don't have
teams on your schedule who you
can call sure wins like you do on
the college level.
want to get into athletic adminis-
SA YERS: Well, I loved athletics,
and I wanted to stay involved with
sports in some way after I ended
my football career. And I wanted
to work on the college level
because that's where all the
action is. But I didn't want to
coach, so I dedded to get into the
administrative aspect. That's
what I prepared myself for. When
I went back to Kansas I got my
Masters in Educational Admin-
istration and worked as assistant
athletic director. Then when this
job SIU athletic director came
open, I took it.
biggest challenge as athletic
director at SIU?
SA YERS: To build and maintain a
quality program with topnotch
teams in every sport. SIU has had
good teams in swimming, wrest-
ling, basketball well, we've had
good teams overall but we must
improve our football program.
Getting Rey Dempsey as head
coach is a real plus. He'll help
alot. But maintaining a quality
program with winning teams is
our objective.

Bumper sticker
upsets Pat Dye
Sports Editor
That little line was printed on bumper stickers earlier this week,
reportedly by former Student Government Association (SGA) president
Bill Bodenhammer, and it has head football ooach Pat Dye upset, to say
the least.
"I understand that a bumper sticker has been printed about Coach
(Bill) Dooley and myself Dye said in a statement issued Wednesday
afternoon. "We try to teach our players to have class and show it on and
off the field. This shows no class at all.
"I'm disappointed that one of our own people would try to profit
financially on something that our football program and team does not
believe in.

for VMI. I certainly hope nothing of this sort takes place in the future

East Carolina faces North Carolina Oct. 23 in Chapel Hill. The Heels
fell to the Pirates 38-17 last year.
Because of the economic
situation in college athletics, our
immediate challenge is to get
more people coming to the
stadium. We have a 20,000-seat
stadium. It's alot like this one
Ficklen. It's newly renovated
and has astroturf. A nice fadlity,
but we've gotta put people in the
seats. But under my administra-
tion, attendance is picking up,
primarily because we're just
going out and getting the people
to come watch us play.
I like to see more student
involvement, but that comes with
a winning team.
FOUNTAINHEAD: What is your
most memorable experience as a
player in the NFL?
SAYERS: The whde career, I
guess. It was just a real honor and
privilege to be able to play with
and against the best every
Sunday. It was a pleasure to meet
and be associated with such great
people. No particular games or
plays really stand out that much.
FOUNTAINHEAD: You were one
of the most exciting backs to play
the game. How was your style
SA YERS: God-given. Everything
I had, everything I was when I
was on the field was God-given.
Of course, I had to work to
develop my strength and speed.
And I had to get in the best
possible condition physically. But
I didn't do anything to develop a
particular running style. I didn't
copy anybody else. My ability was
best back in football today?
SA YERS: That depends on your
means and standards of measure-
ment. Most people use the yard-
stick, the number of yards a
player rushes for in a season. But
it's so dose. If you take all of the
1,000-yards-a-season backs or the
top ten ground gainers and put
them in a hat, you can just pull
one out and be satisfied with
whoever you pick because they're
all so good, all professional, all

SA YERS: Laughter That's really
an unfair question. Pause Like I
said, they're all good. But it's
difficult to compare backs be-
cause they all have such different
styles. I don't think I was like any
of the others. If you drt� a line
down the middle of the field I
might move as far as twenty yards
from that line on both sides on a
40 or 50 yard run, while some
backs would try to run straight
ahead, it's just a difference in
style. It's hard to compare.
Pause Well there'll never be a
nother Gale Sayers.
Basketball practice starts
East Carolina University
opens basketball practice for the
1976-77 season this Friday with
seven returning veterans and six
newoomers expected.
Only two starters return to a
squad that's composed of eight
underclassmen, four of those
sophomores and four freshmen.
Larry Hunt, a 6-9 senior
center from Shelby, N.C elected
captain this year, isoneof the two
returning starters, having aver-
aged nine points and nine re-
bounds per game last year. Louis
Crosby, a 6-3 guard, also from
Shelby, is the other returning
starter. Crosby was named to the
Southern Conference All-Rookie
team last year while averaging
eight points per game. He was
seoond on the Pirate team in
assists with 51.
"I guess I'm looking at this
team in a guarded state said
Dave Pattern, who enters his third
year as Pirate head coach. "Last
year, I thought we had the people
to get the job done and we didn't
do it. So I have to have a more
pensive attitude about this sea-
After his initial club was 19-9,
Patton found the going rough last
year with a final record of 11-15.
But that's behind now.
"Each team makes and esta-
blishes its own character noted
Patton. "This year's success will
depend entirely upon per-
formances this year and have
nothing to do with performances
of last year. Therefore, I don't
care to mention last year any-
more. This is a new group, and
for the most part, a group not
associated with last year
The'7677 Pirate team will be
very young with possible starters
from both the freshman and
sophomore classes. Transfer 6-8
forward Greg Cornelius, who
played one year at Samford
University in Alabama, could well
start, after sitting out last year.
He will be challenged by Wade
Henkel, a 6-8 junior, who has the
potential but has failed to use it;
Herb Gray a 6-7 freshman; and
Herb Krusen, a 6-5 freshman.
Junior oollege transfer Don
Whitaker, a 6-0 guard from
Raleigh, N.C will be fighting
with sophomore Billy Dineen, a
5-11 parttime starter last year,
and Jim Ramsey, a 6-3 freshman
from Cary, N.C for the starting
point guard position.
"Maturity will perhaps be the
key to this year's team con-
tinued Patton. "Just how quickly
our young players mature into the
oollege game will likely be the
success or failure of this club.
"Defense will be the other
major problem area, but I think
we have a good start here, in that
our players have the desire and
attitude to do what has to be done
and that's 90 percen of the job.
"We will try to return to the
basics this year and keep every-
thing simple again like we did the
first year when we were very
successful. I hope to get the
fullest capabilities of each player
and the winning and losing will
take care of itself
The Pirates open their season
on November 29 at home in
Minges Coliseum at 7:30 p.m.
against UNC-Astieville, marking
the first meeting ever of these two
RETURNING SENIOR LARRY HUNT left is one of two starter back
hoping to team with good recruiting dass to improve on Pirates 1-15

ECU rugby club drops pair to Greensboro
Special to the Fountainhead
The ECU Rugby Club played
the GREENSBORO Rugby Club
this weekend here and came out
on the short end of the score in
both "A" and "B" matches.
In the "A" match Greensboro
was able to get on the scoreboard
first with a 25 yard run by Jay
Smith, the extra point kick by Bob
Johnston was good and Greens-
boro led 6-0.
ECU tied the score on a 40
yard run by Pat McKinney, and
Chris Herrmann added the extra
Greensboro was able to score
once more in the half on a 10 yard
run by Mike Farmer, the extra
point attempt was no good and
Greensboro led 10-6.
Greensboro was again able to
get on the score board first in the
second half on a 15 yard run by
Mike Farmer, the extra point kick
by Johnston was good, Greens-
boro led 16-6.
ECU came back with a 20 yard
sprint by Pat McKinney, Herr-
mann' s extra point kick was good,
Greensboro still led 16-12.
Greensboro scored what prov-
ed to be the winning try on a 20
yard run by Will Davis, the kick
was no good, Greensboro led
ECU however narrowed the
margin to 4 on a 30 yard run by
Charlie McGovern, the extra
point kick was no good, Greens-
Hall top punt returner
Gerald Hall has one basic philosophy when it
comes to returning punts. It's simple, but very
successful. At least East Carolina thinks it is.
"The first thing I try to do is catch the ball he
said, "and if I find an opening I take it
The Edenton sophomore has had a good deal of
luck in finding openings. Through the first five
games, Hall leads the nation in punt return yardage,
with a total of 234 yards, even though he did not
play against Southern Illinois. This total includes a
79 yard return for a touchdown against Southern
Mississippi in the season opener.
Through his success, though, Hall remains
"My blocking has really been good he said.
"I'm fairly quick, too, and that helps me get free
There have been problems at times this season
for the nation's leading punt return yardage man.
The most famous mistake he has made was a fair
catch on the one yard line against North Carolina
"Their (State's) punter hit that one good
explained Hall. "I was waiting on the ten yard line. I
knew I was backing up, but I didn't realize how far
Then with a sheepishgrin spreading across his face
he added, "When I caught it, I knelt down in the end
zone. At least that's where I thought I was. Then I
saw what had happened and thought oh, no
Hall's talents are not limited to returning punts.
He is also the starting strong side safety in the East
Carolina defensive secondary. He is the newest
member of the tandem that has played together for
several years. The Pirate safety said that playing
with experienced guys helps his performance.
"I'm young and I'll make mistakes Hall
admitted. "But it's easier to be back there with
those guys (Jim Bolding, Reggie Pinkney, Ernest
Madison) because they make up for my mistakes
He then added, "But hopefully I won't make too
As for his punt return ability, Hall said that he
has no particular plan he uses.
"I just lock for my blockersand find out where the
pu.ouit is he said, "then I takeoff
Hall has taken off all right. Straight to the top,
along with the entire East Carolina football team.
The 234 yards on returns not only leads the
nation, but is a new ECU single season mark.
Hall will be back Saturday to run punts back
against VMI and will probably add to his yardage.

Zwigard leads hockey
Sports Editor
Many people say that a freshman trying to play
athletics on the varsity level is crazy. But do not tell
Cathy Zwigard that.
The Lawrenceville, N.J. native has been the star
so far this season on the women's field hockey team,
but says she is still learning.
"We played the traditional style in high school
Zwigard stated. "But when I came down to ECU I
found they play a completely different style
"I'm still learning the style of play. I've learned
a lot already, but I've got a long way to go. But
Coach (Laurie) Arrants is a tremendous teacher
A three-year letterman from high school days,
Zwigard has learned a lot already, having scored
five goals in as many games.
Zwigard plays the left inner position on the
miii i nunii ii i iiKWiiaiiimiM mm mi m
offensive end of the field and also bullys (same as
face-off in ice hockey) at the start of the game and
second half.
"Cathy has adapted well to the college level
game Coach Laurie Arrants. "There's a big
difference in the size and speed of players up here
Zwigard said field hockey "up North is as big as
girls' basketball in the South. We played in the fall
while the boy's play football and drew big crowds
Zwigard, a special education major, has some
strong aspirations for her future.
I really want to teach retarded children. During
my senior year in high school, I went to classes for
half a day and worked with retarded kids for half the
day. I loved working with them. This summer I
worked at a day camp for retarded children
The way the world is today, one cannot find
individuals with the oompassion Cathy Zwigard has.
She will make it big on the playing field of life.
boro led 20-16.
Greensboro added another try
in the closing minutes of the
game to make the final score
Greensboro 24-ECU 16.
In the "B" match Greensboro
again was the first to score on a 20
vard run bv Bill Haves, the extra
point kick was no good and
