positions, cut the editor's salary
from $150 to $125 a month,
reduced the total budget by
$5,786 from last year.
After printing costs, the bud-
get left $4000 for salaries, sup-
plies, travel, and operating ex-
penses for the 1976-77 fiscal year,

We cannot put out a book for
that amount said Sutherland.

effectively with the positions
The SGA Appropriations
committee discussed the budget

the job on that budget, though

FOUNTAINHEAD, VOL. 52, NO. 142 NOVEMBER 1976
A letter from Julian Vainright in today's edition
urges students to avoid waiting until the deadline to pay
their quarterly fees. It is prudent advioe for students
and perhaps a portentous suggestion for the
Next year this school will begin its first year under
the semester system. Instead of having to pay fees
three times a year, students will be subjected to the
academic toll booth in Spillman only twice annually -
unless they attend summer school.
But along with the reduction in the number of times
students face the cashier comes also one less bout with
the bookstore throng, one less headache with dropadd,
two report cards instead of the current three cases of
melancholia per year which all adds up to less
administration of student affairs.
But, the fees students pay fa such administrative
tasks will not decrease significantly next year.
Quarterly fees of $161 for in-state day students will
translate into $241 per semester, or one dollar less per
student per year.
Realistically though, it would have been an
employer's nightmare fa the university to have laid off
personnel because of the switchover. It simply would
not have been fair.
But is it fair fa students to pay essentially the same
fee fa less service?
Perhaps this year's underclassmen should urge
their Student Government Association to investigate
ways of improving the services received from the
administration. In the Student Opinion Survey
oonducted last year under auspices of the SGA, those
students sampled rated the administration as one of the
least responsive entities on campus. Nearly everyone
attending this university has had at least one
unpleasant saape with the administration - dam
contracts, infirmary, etc.
So, with the administration having to process
students only twice during the regular academic year it
would be safe to assume that they oould perfam a
better job in many areas. Less work to do with the same
number of personnej to perfam it equals more
manhours available to do a better job.
When asked why the students supply stae could not
take refunds on books until the last day of the oourse
drop period, officials explained that administrative
costs would be too great.
We should keep a close eye on that and other
administration policies next year; it's possible we mav
get one-third less service ta the same price.

I would like to ventilate my
anger with the entertainment on

highlight of the year fa the
student body. Therefore the
concerts should have been geared
fa entertaining the student body.
As everybody knows we
brought Charlie Rich and the
Count Basie Orchestra. I was
there fa both ooncerts, and I can
assure you the audiences were
small. Charlie Rich and the Count
Basie Orchestra aren't exactly
entertainment fa the students. If

Just think: the Maja At-

money fa two concerts that very

explanation, don't you?

game in the October 26 issue of
the Fountainhead. How anyone
who attended the game can say
that ECU'S behavior was classless
as compared to UNC's is in my
opinion a very poor judge of class.
Prior to the UNC game the
favorite cheer of ECU students
was "go to Hell Carolina, go to
Hell Because of the ticket
shortage I had to find seating
among the Carolina student sec-
tion and I can assure you that
comparing our cheer with some of
those which Carolina had about
us is like comparing a children's
fairy tale with an X-rated movie.
A good example of Carolina's
In 1975 when ECU defeated
UNC. I did not notice one ECU
student rubbing it in" towards
Carolina fans after the game. This
year, however, when Carolina
upset the Pirates, Carolina fans
could not settle with just a win.
No, they wanted to rub it in on
poor-or ECTC. They made fun of
ECU'S cheerleaders, band mem- ,
bers. or anyone else they thought
was from ECU. Carolina "class"
About thirty minutes after the
game was over. Carolina's class
really showed. While an ECU
student was walking past the
Sgma Alpha Epsilon fraternity
house on Columbia Street, Caro-
lina's mouthing off towards ECU
fans went too far and a fight broke
out between a ECU student and
four Carolina students. Later that
night at a night club on Rt. 15-501
called the Main Event, three
Carolina students provoked a
fight with a ECU student. For-
tunately in both cases no one was
Granted, ECU fans were not
perfect little angels at the end of
the game. Several of the Pirate
fans used profanity to a great
extent in describing their feelings
about the loss, but profanity,
abusive use of cheers and poking
fun at losers are typical at college
football games, but provoking
fights is not and it really burns me
up to see someone put in our own
school newspaper that Carolina
has the class and we do not. If
class is what Carolina showed on
October 23, then no thanks, we do
not need it at ECU. I am proud of
the way my fellow students
carried themselves during and
after the game and I am not going
to oondemn the whole student
body fa the actions of a few. I
think that ECU could teach
Carolina some "real" class.

Collects political and social memorabilia
ECU professor 'buttons up "for a hobby
Assistant Trends Editor
Did anyone ever stop to think
that the campaign buttons which
are worn temporarily, might be
seriously collected as a hobby?
Dr. Don Collins, associate
professor in the Library Science
Dept has a serious interest in
these small metal disks that are
usually discarded after their use
is no longer needed.
"I began collecting buttons
because of an interest in history
and anything old according to
Collins. "Buttonsand other poli-
tical memorabilia are historic and
I've always been interested in
politics stated Collins.
Collins doesn't only collect
buttons, or badges as they are
called in Great Britain. He also
collects any kind of political or
social memorabilia: posters,
bumper stickers, pamplets, etc.

Basie group superb
in Count's absence
By THOMAS SMITH
Even though Count Basie was
unable to make this concert due to
illness, his music and his spirit
were well represented by his
orchestra. The group played to a
Wright Auditorium crowd of
about two hundred. Though the
turnout was small, the people
there seemed to be knowledeable
and appreciative of the band's
The group played a blend of
swing, powerhouse jazz, and a
gentle, romantic sound. Whether
the audience was listening or out
on the dance floor, they seemed
to really enjoy the evening.
The orchestra itself was a
suprise when compared to the
average contemporary groups.
They were well organized and
wasted little time. They moved
smoothly through four sets, aver-
aging about ten songs per set.
Many people were pleasantly
supnsed by the number of songs
they were treated to.
The musicianship of the or-
chestra was superb. Almost every
member of the group stepped out
for a solo The drummer's skill
rivaled that of Buddy Rich. The
saxophone section probably gave
the most soul-stirring solo per-
formances of the night.
One of the biggest suprises of
the evening was the power of the
orchestra. There was very little
electrical amplification used, yet
the sound was ample. Any more
would have been too much.
Listening to this orchestra makes
it easier to understand why
parents can't comprehend the
loud "noise" of our generation.
It is sad that the audience was
so small for this event. It is true
that each generation produces
music that represents the period,
some good, some bad. Yet, it is
time that we realize that every-
thng that is old" is not
necessarily bad. To understand
where good music has evolved
today, one should know the
foundation of that music. Count
basie and his Orchestra is one of
the strongest stones in that
"I don't specialize, in that I
collect anything said Collins.
He does, however, tend to favor
his button collection, which he
began accumulating 16 years ago.
"I started collecting in 1960,
with Kennedy and Nixon. I
walked in headquarters and went
to rallys and picked them up
The collection basically revol-
ves around two of Collin's inter-
ests. These include political but-
tons or buttons concerning a
movement of some kind, such as
feminist rights, civil rights, gay
rights and protest buttons.
"There was a lot of anti-Viet-
nam war protest on the University
of Georgia campus when I was
librarian there. I picked up a
great deal of material there
Collins has over 60 buttons
from the '72 presidential cam-
paign. He worked in a McGovern
headquarters and one of his
studentscollected a large number
of Nixon buttons. Collins remark-
ed that campaign buttons are
valuable only on a national level.
According to Collins, buttons
from the 1976 campaign will be
"Carter buttons will be rare
because it is not Carter headquar-
ters that is pressing them said
Collins. Independent organiza-
tions that support Carter are
having his buttons pressed due to
the new law oonoerning campaign
There are two types of buttons
pressed according to Collins. One
kind has the oellulo�d covering,
which won't scratch. There is also
the lithograph type, where the
message is printed directly on the
When asked about their
effectiveness in society, Collins
remarked that the Carter people
doubted their performance. Col-
lins discredited this idea and
stated that "the more times you
see a persons name, the more
times you are reminded of them
This, he sdd, can cause a win.
When oonoerning a movement,
Collins said "this keeps it in
people's minds, such as civil
rights and Vietnam
He said that buttons are a
form of advertising, but aiso
promote discussion. They
wouldn't be wearing it if they
didn't want to talk about it
according to Collins.
There are several button
collection aganizations in this
country. The largest, with almost
2000 members, is the American
Political Item Collectors.
Co i ns also noted that there
are al kinds of specialization
concer ing button collections,
such ai gum, sports and even
World's hair buttons.
Collins has a few personal
favorites in his collection. One is
from the 1900 election, a Robert
M. LaFollette for president
button made from solid bronze.
Another is Jeannette Rankin's
button with the inscription Gov-
ernments Make War Rankin
was the 1st female congressman
and the only Congressman to vote
against WWI and WWII.
Another favorite is his Eliza-
beth Ray button.
As a collection, he likes his
protest buttons. According to
Collins, "they show more origin-
ality and cleverness
Not to be forgotten, Dr.
Collins also favorshis Don Collins

shows their isa little bit of vanity
Local Nautilus club offers
muscle fitness program
Many people who have passed
Nautilus of Greenville, located on
Evans Street have wondered if it
houses some sort of ultramodern
torture chamber. Indeed, the
equipment at this new health club
appears to the newcomer to be
many things other than the
machinery it reallv is.
The Nautilus equipment was
designed thirty years ago by
Arthur Jones. Jones has wonder-
ed what would happen if the
entirety of a muscle were exposed
to really heavy exercise, but he
found that there was, at the time,
no machinery in existence that
could provide an answer to his
Jones theorized that, in order
to fully expose the muscle to such
rionr it would op necessary frr it

to go through a full-range, rotart
movement. Barbells and the like
didn't provide this movement
because the weight's gravity pulls
only straight down, allowing only
60 degrees of resistance.
The development of such
Nautilus equipment as the pull-
over machine allows as much a
249 degrees of movement, during
which the muscle will feel both
weak and strong points. The weak
or "sticking points" can best be
shown by considering the pro-
spect of lifting 100 pounds. At
your sticking point, you oould
only lift 40 pounds.
Nautilus has delate with the
sticking point problem by deve-
loping a system of cams and
counterweights, which vary the
pressure at different points
through the bocy's movement.
Many people view Nautilus as
a total bodybuilding program
meant only for musdement, but
this is a fallacy. Nautilus gives a
complete workout to both men
and women. It is merely a means
of achieving varied results. By
controlling the equipment, you
control the results.
Most health clubs that use
Nautilus equipment provide
trained personnel to show the
aspiring exerciser to properly
operate the machinery. The staff
at the local Nautilus dub can give
individual attention to all cus-
tomers, whether they come in to
gain musdes, or to lose weight.

Pirate Rally Tops Catamounts
By STEVE WHEELER
Playing less than sharp foot-
ball and giving Western Carolina
17 points on turnovers, East
Carolina barely won their Home-
coming dual with the Cata-
mounts, 24-17, before a record
crowd in Ficklen Stadium Satur-
The Pirates ran off a 14-0 lead
in the first half before quarter-
back Mike Weaver was intercept-
ed by the Cats' Terry Moore with
just less than five minutes left in
the half. Western got a field goal
out of the turnover as time was
about to run out in the second
The Catamounts took advant-
age of two Pirate fumbles in the
third stanza to take the lead 17-14
before Pete Conaty came in at
quarterback and led the Pirates
on an 80-yard touchdown drive to
recapture the lead.
The game was played before
21,506 partisan ECU fans, break-
ing the Ficklen Stadium record
set by East Carolina and Rich-
mond in 1973 of 21,251.
Head coach Pat Dye thought
the team was a bit flat for the
I know we were not nearly as
sharp as we have been at times
Dye said following the game.
"We played about like we
practiced during the week. That's
a direct reflection first of all on
me and our coaches.
"We definitely went back-
wards this week and today. We
struggled and made it difficult.
We will have to play a lot better
during the next three weeks in
order to win those games
The game started off like a
defensive battle. The ball was
punted six times before either
team could get something going.
The Pirates finally sustained a
drive after Mike Hicks' fourth
punt rolled dead on the ECU 35
yardline. Weaver led the Pirates
to paydirt with a drive of 65 yards
in just seven plays.
Fullback Raymond Jones
started off the drive with a plunge
of eight yards up the middle,
followed by a 13 yard gain by
Willie Hawkins off tackle. After
Jones picked up three more up
the middle, Weaver ran off 13
with a keeper to the left.
Hawkins then went off right
tackle fa 17 yards to the WCU 11.
Jones then picked up four more
through the middle of the line.
Weaver then went on the
option to the left side and turned
up-field to score from seven
yards out with just 007 showing
on the clock for the first quarter.
Pete Conaty's extra point put the
Pirates up a 7-0 count.
The Pirates got a big break
early in the second period when
Catamount fullback Andy Jordan
fumbled and reserve defensive
end John Morris recovered on the
Western 26 yard line.
Pete Conaty was taking care of
the quarter backing chores at the
time and called fa an option play
to the left side. A huge hole
opened up and the senia field
general cut upfield and outran
two defenders into the end zone
Conaty then added the point
after to put the Pirates up 14-0.
After Barry Johnson's kiokoff,
the Catamounts looked as if they
were going to give the game to
ECU. Starting quarterback Keith
Scoggins threw his second inter-
ception of the day to Gerald Hall.
Hall returned the ball to the Cats'
27 yard line. This was all the
action seen by Scoggins fa the
FIELD GOAL BLOCKED
The Pirates tried three times
to advance on running plays, but
only picked up two yards. Conaty
then came on to attempt a 42 yard
field goal. The attempt failed as it
was blocked by Terry Moae
ooming in from the side.
With just less than five
minutes left in the half Weaver
came back to run the Pirates
offense. On third down, Weaver
went back and spotted Terry
Gallaher downfield. Weaver let
go with a 60 yard bomb but
Moae came up with his second
interception of the day.
The Catamounts drove down
to the ECU 19 yard line in 13
plays, with the drive cumulating
in a 37 yard field goal by Steve
On the very first play on the
third quarter, Eddie Hicks fumb-
led fa the Pirates and the ball
was recovered by James Blanton
fa the Cats at the East Carolina
36 yard line.
Reserve quarterback Kent
Briggs, who hit on 11 of 13 passes
fa 120 yards substituting fa
Scoggins, hit Wayne Smith fa
nine yards ai first down befae
Jadan hit fa the middle of the
line fa six.
Darrell Lipfad, who rushed
fa 106 yards in 25 carries,
went around left end twice fa
gains of 14 and three yards,
giving the Cats a second-and-goal
at the four. Lipfad then went
around right fa the touchdown.
Claxton s extra point attempt was
wide, but Western had pulled to
within five at 14-9.

It has to be some kind of oddity. It isn't often that a team can lose a
match in both the semifinals and the finals and still win the
championships. That was the case concerning the Kappa Alpha team
tennis champions in last week's playoffs.
The Kappa Alphas lost both their matches in the semifinals and
quarterfinals of the team tennis playoffs, but wound up in the finals due
to an unusual series of circumstances. The KAs received a bid in the
finals when three teams; the Ayoock Jocks, Aycock Deuees and Nasty's
were disqualified fa using illegal players. That left Kappa Alpha and
Belk Bouncers to compete in the finals.
In the finals the KAs downed the Bouncers 4-1 to repeat as the
all-campus team t nnis champions.
TOUCH FOOTBALL CHAMPIONS
The Pack and Tyler II took championships in intramural touch
football. The Paok won the all-campus title fa the second year in a row
with a 12-0 win over the Rugby Ruggers. Tyler II downed Tyler I 14-0.

Monkberry Moon Delight has taken sole possession of first place in
water basketball with 6-0 reoad. Right behind last year's fall champions
are Rocky's Best and the Neaonacers, both with 4-1 reoords. The
playoffs begin next week.

The champiois in both the
men's and women's touch foot-
ball playoffs have been decided.
The Pack won the men's
all-campus championship with a
12-0 win over the Rugby Ruggers
and Tyler II defeated Tyler I 2O0
fa the wanen's championship.
In the men's playoff final the
Pack scaed early in the game to
take a 6-0 lead as Mike Herring
hit Tommy Fleetwood on a
45-yard touchdown pass. The
Pack then turned to its defense to
hold off the Ruggers, who had
been the Club division champ-
The Pack's defense came up
with an insurance soae in the
seoaid half with Fleetwood inter-
cepted a Ruggers' pass and ran
15 yards with it fa a touchdown
and a 12-0 lead.
The Pack also won the all-
campus championship last year,
thus repeating this season fa the
secaid year in a row. They
finished 10-0 this season and
were ranked fourth after regular-

Pi Kappa Phi took a pair of big wins last week and are now beginning
to move towards a defense of their all-campus volleyball championships.
The Pi Kapps, now 5-0. beat the Kappa Sigma "C" team and Kappa
Alpha "B" team last week.
The Pi Kapps can't breath easy yet because right in their own
division the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity team is challenging with a 4-0
recad. The two teams meet this week in a game which should determine
the regular-season champion in that Fraternity League.
In the aher league involving fraternity teams the Kappa Alpha "A"
team remains unbeaten at 5-0, one game ahead of the Teke Maulers and
Pi Lambda Phi Bad Company. .
There are plenty of good teams in the other divisions, though. In the Big FullbaCK
dam divisions the top of the crop can be chosen from any one of three
teams. The best of the dam teams are The Aycock Stars, the Scott Dry
Heaves and the Ayoock Guerrilas. An upset loss and a fafeit leaving the
Umstead Volleys just behind.
In the Club and Independent divisions last year's champions are
setting the pace. The BSU Bullets took a narrow win over Phi Epsilon
Kappa fa the club lead and the Volley Follies are tied with Every
Maher's Son fa the Independent lead.

High school fcotball in the Tidewater area of

Jones took weekend recruiting trips to such
campuses as Carolina, N.C State, Virginia Tech,
and Michigan State, but in the end chose East
Carolina as the place to spend his next four years.
As many athletes do, Jones sometimes thinks about
what things might have been like had he gone
elsewhere, but he thinks his decision to come to
Pirate Country was best.
Jones reflects, "Yeah, I'm glad I came to ECU.
The school was small, yet it had a big (football)
program. I like the size of this school because in
foaball as well as in the classroom, everything's
mae personal. They give mae persaial attention
Most of the ahers were so large. You're just another

But no matter how smoahly any interpersonal
relationships go, the athlete's primary concern is
athletic perfamance. As a freshman, the then 205
pound runner played tailback behind Carlester
Crumpler and Ken Strayhan in Sonny Randle's
Pro-I offense. But when Pat Dye took over as head
coach, Jones fitted into the wishbone picture as a
During his sophomae season, Jones played a
backup role, and though he had hoped to earn a
starting berth in 1975 he suffered ligament damage
in one hand which required surgery and kept him
out of the action during his first few games. So Jones
watched from the sidelines fa the most part though
he started a couple of the last games of the season.

Now it is 1976, the season the Pirates were
supposed to put it all together under Dye who was in
his third year as head coach. It is Jones' senior
yearthe season everybody expects him to step in
an1 play a big role in the Pirates' offensive success.
To date, Raymond Jones continues to produce.
One key factor fa the wishbone's success is the
fact that defenses must respect all three options, the
first option being the handoff to the fullback through
the middle. Though teams must pay great attention
to the Pirates' outside running threat (a la Willie
Hawkins, Eddie Hicks and Mike Weaver), they
realize the Pirates' potential to move the ball
through the inside.
In the third game of the season, William and
Mary geared their defense to stop the Pirates'
outside attack, leaving their inside vulnerable to
those quick straight-ahead bursts which make Jones
a valuable member of the team. The result: fullback
Raymond Jones carried 22 times fa a game-leading
total of 109 yards (mae than half ECU'S rushing
total), his best game of the season statistically
Throughout the season, Jones has played his role
well, providing big runs and key blocks when
needed. While his coaches, teammates, and fans are
happy Jones decided to come to ECU, no one is
happier than Jones himself that he is wearing the
Purple and Gold.
