other sources.
The bill. Appropriation to the Photo Lab, was amended to revise the
salary of the senia photographer from $160 to $150 per month.
Every cut that has been made in salaries has been to $150 a below

The final decisions will be made by the Executive
Branch, said Pingston.
"We'll go with their recommendations, mae
than likely said Pingstai.
The Task Face has met twice without making
any definite decisions, accading to Pingston.
The Task Face is considering two famats fa
the annual. One is a typical annual famat and the
second is a magazine famat.
Monika Sutherland, former BUCCANEER
edita, has been waking with the Task Face,
Pingstai said.

Attractions at wit's end
Staff Writer
The Student Union and the
Maja Attractions committee is at
"wit's end" in trying to deter-
mine what type of entertainment
ECU student want, according to
Student Union President Barry
As of the Leon Russell con-
cert, Maja Attracticns has ex-
hausted its own budget of mae
than $41,000, and has spent sane
$1800 of Student Union savings to
bring students a variety of
shows, said Robinson.
The committee is now con-
templating a cancellation of the
B.B. King-Donald Byrd show in
fava of one that would attract a
larger audience, accading to Bob
Seraiva, chairman.
Seraiva said that in ader to
provide shows in the future the
next attractions would have to be
a financial success, because the
committee cannot jeopardize the
entire Student Union savings
Although the 1300 tickets sad
at the gate were the most fa any
show this year, it was not enough
to offset a $10,000 loss.
Committee members attribu-
ted the low attendance at the
Russell-Furay Sunday night sche-
duling and competition from the
first TV showing of "Gone With
the Wind Some members felt
that the unusually large number
of cancellations this year kept
others away.
Robinson said that the general
atmosphere toward concerts and
other campus entertainment has
been poisoned, and as a result
attendance at these events has
suffered. Robinson did not say
who a what had poisoned the
As if money problems were
not enough, the floa in Minges
Coliseum was "extensively dam-
aged' ' by cigarette burns. As of
November 11, the Student Union
had not been billed fa that
damage, according to Robinson.

Policy changed for
medical excuses
Editor's note: The following memo was recently
issued to all ECU faculty members from Edwin W.
Monroe, Vice Chancellor fa Health Affairs.
Effective the beginning of the Winter Quarter on
Nov. 29, 1976, the policy on medical excuses fa
students who are absent from class will be modified.
Responsibility fa class attendance rests primar-
ily with the students who should communicate
directly with the instructa. Instructas, if they
desire, may call the Infirmary to verify a health
problem did exist and get an estimate of the extent
of disability. Individual disgnosis and other specific
details cannot be released without the written
consent of the student.
The Infirmary will provide to the Office of the
Associate Dean of Students at the end of each day a
list of those students who are confined to bed
because of illness a injury. Students may obtain
written confirmation of confinement from the Office
of the Associate Dean of Students. The Infirmary
also will certify if a student is too ill to take a final
examination and will recommend that the grade of
"Incomplete" be awarded.

ECU employment hinders loans
Production Manager
Students who receive federal
financial assistance while em-
ployed by the university may have
to return some money to the
federal government, according to
Robert M. Boudreaux, ECU'S
director of financial aid.
"Before students (receiving
financial aid) accept a job, their
first responsibility istocheck with
the financial aid office said
"Financial aid is awarded on
need. The U.S. Office of Edu-
cation allows plus or minus $100
leeway in meeting the student's
needs 100per cent according to
" I f a student's needs are met
and he later obtains a job. then
the money he receives is con-
sidered overrewarding said
"Any money made over $100
of the total need means we are in
trouble and the student involved
is in trouble added Boudreaux.
"Obtaining a job does not
affect certain grants such as the
Basic Educational Opportunity
Grant (BEOG) Boudreaux
Loans affected by receiving
university money are National
Direct Student Loans, Supple-
mental Educational Opportunity
Grants, Nursing Student Scholar-
ship, and the College Work-
Study Program.
These loans carry an interest
rate of three per cent, which is
due on the actual long term loan,
not on the money received from
university employment, Bou-
dreaux said.
"There is nothing cut-and-
dry. Each case must be reviewed
individually based on aid and
need Boudreaux commented.
Jobs which will affect these
loans are those funded by the
university. Such jobs include
Student Government, FOUN-
REBEL positions, and certain
types of work study programs.
As for student assistance
money, the federal government
can dictate to ECU what to do
with such money, according to
"It's unfair that the students
are paying me financial aid said
Steve Wheeler. Fountainhead
sports editor.
"I feel like I'm doing a seryice
for the students. The pay we get
is token and not close to minimum
wage Wheeler added.
"According to the financial
aid office, I receive more than 100
per cent of my needs. But even
with my salary, the loan doesn't
meet my needs according to
secretary of academic affairs, Tim
"I think it's bad. I'm up here
doing a job and being penalized
for it McLeod added.
The rule has always been on
the books. It just wasn't taken
quite seriously until recently
said Tim Sullivan, Student
Government Association (SGA)
"There is nothing that can be
done. It is a federal law
Sullivan add d.
According to Sullivan, SGA
funds are under federal rules and,
therefore, the SGA must comply
with those federal regulations.
"This isn't anything new.
With the computer it doesn't take
us as long to find out who is
affected said Boudreaux.
Until the federal government
changes, we're going to have to
abide by the U.S. Office of
Education commented
"It's to the student's advant-
age to come in and check on his or
her loan said Boudreaux.
"If SGA money wasn't uni-
versity money, we would be free
and clear. But this money is aid
money and must be deducted
from loans commented Sullian.
"You can't fight city hall.

21st century learning
During the remainder of this century this nation is
likely to experience either a renaissance or a
revolution in education.
National test scores have been dropping for the
past several years and taxpayers are clamoring about
how school systems are spending their money.
Educators and social observers offer several
explanations for the decline: television and other
extra-curricular diversions are usurping time that
students would otherwise devote to their schcolwork;
too little emphasis has been placed on the basics, the
Three Rs; schools, being allocated funds on the basis
of the number of pupils, are eager to keep the
dropout rate low by pushing slower students through
the grades, despite their inadequate academic skills.
Even though the Technology Age is still upon us
there seems now less enthusiasm for high-priced
education, whose capability to produce graduates
with the basic literary, linguistic and mathematical
skills is spurious, than during the heighth of the
Space Age in the '60s. Taxpayers are today
demanding more brain for the buck.
Results of the Gallup Poll's eighth annual survey
of attitudes toward the public schools and education
released Saturday indicate 65 per cent of the
American public favors a standardized national test
for high school seniors. All high school students
would have to pass the examination before they could
graduate. Gallup polled the public in 1958, using the
identical question. The results showed less discon-
tentment with the educational system; only half of
the American public favored the best team.
One school administrator in Virginia has taken
into his own hands the matter of guaranteeing basic
proficiency of pupils-to the chagrin of many at the
outset of his experiment. Sam A. Owen, Greenville
County superintendent of schools has eliminated
"social promotions" in that county's school system.
Greenville's pupils must now demonstrate through a
battery of tests that they have learned enough
English, math, history and so on to merit being
passed to the next grade. The testing has paid off;
from an average score ranking in the bottom third of
the nation before the end of social promotions,
second through seventh graders now rank in the top
third percentile on their reading scores.
Education, whether basic or experimental, is not
going to get any less expensive at the primary
through higher levels. Taxpayers should not expect
to pay less for the education and socialization of their
children. But, the techniques we use to educate
should be examined periodically to determine their
cost effectiveness.

To Fountainhead:
Having just recently oome to
work at East Carolina, I have
been tremendously impressed to
point with the spirit shown by the
study body, and especially by the
Marching Pirates.
The student support has been
evident at every game ECU has
played to date, and the Marching
Pirates have been at all home
games and a couple of road
games as funds would permit.
The talent in the band is
excellent, and is worthy of
recognition. They have been one
of the main spirit boosters on the
Now word comes to me that
the members of the Marching
Pirates have taken a vote on
whether or not to stay fa the
game, and that several have
expressed a desire not to stay.
This, to me, seems quite ambig-
uous. On the one hand, the band
asks for recognition, and makes
claims about their great spirit,
which has been true. But it is very
easy for one to support something
that is a winner and something
that is convenient. The true test
of spirit comes when one is
inconvenienced, or supports a
program that is not on top.
In this case, East Carolina is
fighting for the Southern Confer-
ence championship. Many of the
players have been working four
years to reach this goal, and just
as they are about to reach it, the
support is pulled out from under
them. This is not fair to the team
or to East Carolina University. If
ECU is to receive publicity, it
must have the support of its own
I would urge the students to
re-examine their positions and I
hope that the band will also
reconsider. Coach Dye and the
team deserve your suooort. You
have been saying that you've got
the spirit, now you have a chance
to show it.

Television flexes its muscle, again
To Fountainhead:
The decision to reschedule the
Applachian game is a typical
example not only of the undeser-
ved power of television, but also
of unrestrained avarice taking
place of fair play.
The student body has done a
fine job of supporting a fine
football team and now it is faced
with the fact that the biggest
home game of the year has been
taken away. So many students
stood in endless lines to get
tickets for away games. And so
many students filled the stadium
to far over capacity. The student
body traveled to Chapel Hill and
to Raleigh to support what we felt
was a special group of athletes. It
was predicted that Ficklen Sta-
dium would host over 30,000

people for this Appalachian
game. It isdoubtful now that with
the students gone that the
stadium will reach half that
capacity. True, many more may
see the game on television, but is
this unknown silent crowd worth
more than the strongly vocal,
supportive ECU student body that
Pat Dye has been so praiseworthy
of? Is it fair to make the ECU
band, one of the finest in the
nation, miss their Thanksgiving
in order to attend the football
game? Many of them have not
been home sinoe they arrived
here in September, and they do
not receive any special compensa-

Frats admit
Staff Writer
Members of three ECU social
fraternities have admitted that
their organizations practice phy-
sical hazing in pledge orientation
At least four other fraternities
have admitted to mentally haras-
sing their pledges here.
With few exceptions, ECU
social fraternity pledge orienta-
tion activities have changed ever
recent years, however.
But they have not changed
enough, according to James
Mai lory, dean of men and advisor
to all ECU fraternities.
Mental and physical harass-
ment and ridicule, better known
as hazing, were accepted stan-
dard for pledge orientation pro-
grams in fraternities years ago,
according to Mallory.
Today, however, hazing is
against all National Fraternity
Council regulations, university
rules, and North Carolina state
Mallory admitted that hazing
is "on the decline" at ECU, but
not totally gone.
The College Fraternity Secre-
tary s Association (CFSA), made
up of executive secretaries fa
fraternities, asserts "unequivo-
cally its opposition to hazing and
pre-initiation activities which do
not contribute to the positive
development and welfare of pled-
ges and members according to
the CFAS's "Statement of Posi-
tion on Hazing
The seven fraternity members
who admitted that their groups
practice some sort of hazing
requested that their organizations
and names remain anonymous.
When asked to comment on
the above disclosures, Mallory
called physical harassment
"gross immaturity but referred
to mental hazing as simply a
"A guy has to go through
something to work himself up to
the status of a brother he said.
Mallory is very opposed to
physical hazing.
Any fraternity that continues
to participate in such activities is
on its way to dissolution, accord-
ing to Mallory.
The three who admitted that
their fraternities practice physical
hazing refused to give details of
the harassment.
This reporter, however did
witness one such activity refer-
red to by a Fraternity as the
"death walk
The "death march" begins at
the top of College Hill Drive and
ends at the bottom of the road
which runs between the girls
high-rise dorms near downtown
Pledges participating in the
three-quarter mile walk must take
one large step forward, 3 small
steps back for the entire distance
while carrying three or four bricks
in their left hands at shoulder
height, never stopping or chang-
ing hands.
The president of this frater-
nity oversees the "death march"
to make sure the pledges perform
as instructed.
Mental harassment also takes
many forms, according to Mal-
One form of mental hazing
was admitted to by one fraternity
and accepted by Mallory and the
Inter-Fraternity Council (IFC).
In it the pledges must learn
the history and by-laws of their
fraternity. Then, during the 10 to
12-week orientation period, they
are taken to a dark room with one
bright light shining directly in
their faces and quizzed vigorously
on the history and by-laws by all
the fraternity members.
The IFC is the oo-ordinating
organization for the ECU frater-
nity system.
According to Bill Benson, IFC
president, ECU fraternities are
becoming more oriented to social
services in their pledge programs
now and are steering away from
harassing practices.
Benson cited the annual cam-
pus blood drive, Christmas bene-
fits for underpriveleged children,
and Homecoming programs as
The majority of ECU fraternity
pledge programs today are de-
signed to promote simple disci-
pline, loyalty and brotherhood,
according to Benson.

Dr. William F. Grossnickel,
professor of social psychology,
also commented on fraternity
pledge orientation programs.
"Guys are attracted to frater-
nities because the activities are
interesting and they feel they can
achieve a sort of status, a sense of
identity, and, to a certain extent,
power he said.
"Of course, there's also the
old idea that the guys befae them
in the particular fraternity had to
go through what they're going
through, so why shouldn't they?'
Tom Phillips, a graduate
student in clinical psychology,
commented during the interview
about social confamity.
"The pledge programs are
just making the pledges confam,

City Inspector says:
School inspections reveal many problems
Staff Writer
The closing of the Third Street
School in May prompted an
inspection of all Greenville City
Schools by the City Inspector's
Office, according to Alton
Warren, chief inspector.
The inspections revealed pro-
blems in each school, although
most were minor, Warren said.
Warren said the E.B. Ayoock
Junior High School had extensive
damage, however.
The roof was in poor oondition
and barrels had been placed
throughout the building to catch
water leaking through, according
to Warren.
"The roof should have lasted

The company is using the
Trocal System, a new method
from Germany, to repair the roof,
according to Souther.
"No tar or asphalt is used in
the system said Souther.
According to Carstarphen,
$150,000 was budgeted for re-

In addition to roof repairs,
bathroom tiles were replaced,
cracks in walls were puttied over

were repainted, according to
Most of the repairs to the
eight year-old building were
made during the summer, ac-
cording to Warren.

"We are working within the

According to Warren, calls to

had prompted the inspection of

Warren said he inspected and
found rotten floors oovered by
plywood, crumbling floor joists,
broken windows, and crumbling
concrete steps at the entrances.
"There was no reason for it to
be like that said Warren.
He said it had been 14 to 15
months since the last inspection
of the school.
However, a state statute re-
quires principals to make daily
inspections of schools and to call
the city inspector if problems are
found, said Warren.
According to Stewart, plans
had been made to correct the
problems. Money had been bud-

Warren's inspection of the
school came two weeks before the
end of the school year.
Warren said he believed the
building to be unsafe then and
that it should not be used for the
last two weeks, so he ordered the
school closed.
The students from the Third

either to Elmhurst School or to

According to Warren, his
office will be more strict with the
city school system from now on.

The interior of the Third

The repairs are expected to be
oompleted in time for the opening

According to Warren, the
building will be inspected again
after repairs to insure the safety

A former ECU football player
was found not guilty of book theft
Thursday, Nov. 11 in an Honor
Council hearing in Mendenhall
Student Center.
The defendant was charged
with selling three allegedly stolen
books but acquitted after short

Jenkins, Honor Council chair-
The Council also heard a case
involving charges of disorderly
conduct in the ECU Infirmary.
The defendant in this case
allegedly acted in a disorderly
manner after assisting a friend to
the Infirmary who had suffered an
asthma attack.
The defendant pleaded guilty
to threatening an Infirmary resi-
dent nurse as she was calling
campus police for assistance,
aocording to Jenkins.
The defendant said he was
simply scared, Jenkins said.
The Honor Council found the
defendant guilty and served him
with a written reprimand.
In other business, the Council
discussed the recent resignation

Discussion continues about
foreign language requirement
Assistant News Editor
Last Thursday the ECU Curri-
culum Committee heard more
discussions from faculty members
on the SGA's proposal to drop
foreign language as a require-
ment for the B. A. degree.
Only two departments, psy-
chology and geology, favored a
modification of the foreign lang-
uage requirement.
Professor Hazel Stapleton,
spokesperson fa the psychology
department, requested a post-
ponement of the proposal partly
because of the semester change
next Fall quarter
"Some faculty members in the
psychology department wish to
modify the requirements. The
A.B. degree is the only one
offered in our department. We
feel that a modification of the
foreign language requirements
would be in the best interest of
the psychology department
said Professor Stapleton.
No other department is
represented for more than nine
quarter hours of a student's time.
Foreign language represents 20
quarter hours of their time she
continued. "The arguments in
favor of the requirements over-
look this disproportionate
Dr. Stapleton summed up her
report by proposing that each
department decide individually
on the foreign language require-
ments, that departments adopt
teaching approaches more suited
to students with limited apti-
tudes, and that the required
number of hours in a foreign
language be reduced.
Dr. Thomas Williams of the
foreign language department said
that the line should be drawn at
the A.B. degree.
"We have already dropped
foreign languages as an entrance
requirement he said.
Dr. John Maiola of the
Anthropology and Sociology de-
partment said that the B.A.
requirement for foreign lang-
uages should be kept intact. He
added that the B.S. degree should
be allowed an alternative.
Dr. Ennis L. Chestang, chair-
man of the Geography depart-
ment said that only one faculty
member voted not to keep the
foreign lanquage requirement for
the B. A. degree in the Geography

Thursday, Nov. 18, has been

OXFAM does not run or
administer its own programs,
rather it finances and encourages
the work of local agencies and

One of these local agencies is
a combined effort of ECU stu-

students encourage all who are
interested in joining them to come

In addition to the fasting
on Thursday, OXFAM suggests
that the equivalent of what would
have been spent on meals that
day be donated to OXFAM.
OXFAM takes the donations it
receives and through a staff of 30
experienced field directors seeks
out and encourages poor farmers
in Asia, Africa, and Latin Amer-
ica to improve their crops and
farming methods, according to
In doing this for the past 34
years, OXFAM has found that
people work hard for change in
their communities when the work
reflects their own choices and
needs, said Frandsen.
OXFAM began in England in
1942 as the Oxford Committee fa

other OXFAM organizations have
been formed in America, Austra-

Journalism program studies
social responsibility problems
The journalism program at ECU regards
teaching technical skills as only part of the job,
according to Ira Baker, ECU Journalism Coordinat-
"It's even more important that the reporter be
acutely aware of his social responsibility to let as
many voices be heard as possible said Baker.
We just used to talk about the right of a free

Part of the criticism of the press stems from the
Vietnam War. "There were so many unpleasant
things to report said Baker.
We were perhaps killing the messenger who
brought the bad news.
Another problem is that today's instant
communication gives disproportionate publicity to
the more militant individuals who are willing to
perform outrageous acts said Baker. "While it is
more difficult for the man in the street to have
access to the media.
"With all our electronic equipment it's hard to
be heard he said.
In addition to technical courses such as "Copy

on the student's part and less time in the classroom.

Special study seminars in journalism encourage
student work on topics of individual interest.
Topics have included; the influence of the
newspaper editorial on the public, problems of
censorship, black journalism and the underground
More advanced courses involve such aspects of
journalism as advising student publications, a
valuable asset to those who plan to teach at the high
school or junior college level, and the role of the
press in modern society, politically, economically
and socially.
Baker is particularly fond of the benefits
provided by the journalism laboratory, a simulated
"news room" with oopy desks, typewriters, and a
"morgue" (back issues and clippings).
Besides his academic role, Baker has served the
twice-weekly Fountamhead as faculty advisor.
In 1971, he received the "Outstanding Advisor
Award" from the Associated Collegiate Press.
Many of the students on the newspaper staff
have some background in journalism but often the
campus newspaper is the first contact students have
with the profession.
"One of the biggest problems we face is to
convince prospective staff members that interest in
honest communication is the only absolute require-

Lawrence J. O Keefe, assistant professor of
journalism at ECU since 1974.
Technical courses include writing and editing for
newspapers and magazines, courses in make-up

reporter to gather and research factual news
articles, and even a course in editorial writing.

While newspapers, magazines and other

More than 50 years servicing campus

University newspaper reflects growth
From a small newsletter to an award winning campus newspaper,
Fountamhead has come a long way in over 50 years of existence.
ECU has had a news publication since 1923, 15 years after the school
was established.
The first attempt was a newsletter, the East Carolina Teachers'
College News, and was only in operation for two years before the
newspaper idea really took hold.
The Techo Echo, a bi-weekly tabloid, was the first true newspaper. It
contained ads, entertainment and athletics, as well as general news in
the format.
Deanie Boone Haskett was the first editor-in-chief. She worked with
a staff of three assistant editors, five business persons and reporters
from around the campus.
In 1926 school spirit had a strong emphasis. One issue of the paper
listed the requirements for earning a ECTC letter.
It took 450 points toearn the sacred letter. Some of the point earning
activities included:
Original song or yell, 15 points.
No candy between meals, 1 point per week.
Six glasses of water per day, 1 point per week.
Cold bath daily, 1 point per week.
Fresh hose daily, 1 point per week.
Well ventilated room, 1 point per week.
Shampoo once every two weeks, 1 point per month.
The name for this first newspaper was derived from the Teachers'
College part of the school name and plus Echo to indicate that the paper
was to be "an echo of the events that occurred on campus
One of the early front pages contained an article on the growing
enrollment at ECU.
In 1923, 486 students had enrolled while 400 were turned away
because of a lack of housing.
In a 1947 issue, it was reported that all freshmen and sophomore
students were permitted to go downtown at night the first three
weekends of a quarter.
Prior to this, the students were not permitted off campus those
The word "Teacher" was struck from the school name in April of
The Publications Board, formed in 1938, felt that this was the time to
review all publication names.
The Techo Echo was changed to the East Carolinian and the
yearbook's name was changed from the Tecoan to the Buccaneer.
In 1970. the paper became known as Fountamhead from the
importance placed upon the fountain located in front of Wright Building.
That year also saw the paper become the first collegiate paper in the
state to have Associated Press wire service.

Dinner and a show; a good idea
Trends Editor
The combination of a popular
play with a high-quality buffet
dinner is surely an almost ideal
form of entertainment. What's
more, the dinner theatre is now
part of the ECU entertainment
The Mendenhall Student
Center Theatre debuted Thursday
at 7:00. During the first hour, the
capacity crowd of 100 enjoyed a
dinner that consisted of a choice
of rare roast beef or turkey divan
Spanish green beans, brown
pecan rice, tossed salad, fruit
cup, rolls, peach melba, and
coffee or tea.
The meal, which was catered
by Servomation, was perfectly
executed. I chose the beef and it
couldn't have been better. The
rest of the courses were just as
pleasing as the entree.
The main attraction of the
evening, however, was the play
itself. The show was "The Odd
Couple a Neil Simon hit of the
'60s that was adapted into a
popular movie, and which finally
enjoyed lengthy success as a
television situation oomedy star-
ring Tony Randall and Jack
The play is the story of two
men, Feli. Unger and Oscar
Madison, who move in together
after their marriages break up.
Felix is an impeccable fussbudget
with a fetish for domestic chores.
Oscar is a slob from way back; a
sportswriter whose favorite sport
is life.
The characters of Felix and
Oscar were brought to life on the
Mendenhall stage by Charlie

Jennette and Stuart Aronson
Jennette, a poli so major,
and the only student in the cast,
seemed to take time to warm up
to the role but due to the long run
of TV's "Odd Couple I believe
part of this oould be attributed to
the audience's tendency to expect
Tony Randall himself on stage.
By Act Two. Jennette was
Felix Unger in all his sniveling
glory, amusing and irritating the
audience simultaneously.
The real scene stealer was
Stuart Aronson as Oscar. From
his Brooklyn inflections to his
ambling stature, Aronson was the
perfect Oscar. In addition to
bringing out the slack sides of the
character's personality. Aronson
seemed to add a little extra
sensitivity, which made the per-
formance something special.
Aronson, a speech professor
with ECU'S Department of Con-
tinuing Education, was also in
charge of production and di-
rection of the play.
It was obvious, from the
appropriateness of Bill Devins
sets to the rapport between the
players, that there was lengthy
preparation on the part of the
director, aew and cast.
Other players included Bob
McCutcheon, Terry Davis, and
David Wardel as the "couple's"
poker buddies. All three com-
plemented the show's stars, and
set the mood for their scenes.
Special praise should be given
to Cherra Hill and Lynn Malado-
witz as the wild British Pigeon
sisters; they added much-needed
spice to the production.
All told, ECU'S first taste of
the dinner theatre genre was an
almost unqualified success. There
were some problems for those
seated at the back tables (as I
was). It was difficult to follow the
action on stage without much
shifting and craning. In spite of
this minor irritation, I found the
evening to be delightful, and I
congratulate Aronson, Jennette
and the staff of the Student
Center for what I rate as a big

Marquee sees 'Marathon Man1
Staff Writer
With the movies in Greenville
being the caliber of "The Cars

Washington to see some of the
new Fall releases. This column
will be devoted to a movie not yet

well-played. Levy's hysterical

This film of obsessions carries
the gentle Thomas Levy (Dustin
Hoffman) from locent ama-
teur jogger to a semetic and
sibling-avenging angel. The ac-
tion revolves around a former
Nazi. Szell (Lawrence Olivier),
who conspires with the American
government to keep his identity
as a war criminal a secret. The
sequence includes the death of
Levy's brother (Roy Schneider)
and brings Levy to torture, and
the eventual confrontation with
the murderer of his brother and
several thousand Jews.
Hoffman is excellent as the
naive and terrified young history
student whose previous crusade
has been to clear his deceased

where the government is aligning

The remaining players are

Furmantops Bucs
Sports Editor
East Carolina fans received
both good and bad news on
Saturday. The good news was
that ECU had been selected to
receive regional television cover-
age on Thanksgiving night a-
gainst Appalachian State, the
game being moved five days back
from its original Nov. 20 date.
The bad news for the Pirate
followers was that ECU would
have to win against the
Mountaineers to claim their first
conference title in three years
ABC-TV announced Saturday
ECU and ASU would be in on a
line of regional telecasts for
Turkey Day. The game was
originally scheduled for next
Saturday but to get television
exposure needed, the game was
moved back.
Furman's Paladins made the
bad news possible by upsetting
the Pirates 17-10 in Sirrine

plays, the Bucs led as the first
quarter ended. However, early in
the second stanza, Mike Weaver
fumbled on the Pirate 22 yard line
and the Paladins took the ball in
for the score. On the ensuing
kickoff Eddie Hicks cobbled the
ball at the 16 yard line and
Furman turned this miscue into a
field goal to lead at the half 10-7.
After Pete Conaty tied the
game in the third quarter with a
field goal, the Paladins took over
on their 16 following the kickoff.
Larry Robinson took a pitch from
quarterback David Whitehurst
and went 84 yards untouched for
the winning score.

plays that oould have been the

could move the ball in the early
part of the game and there were
three punts before a first down

Carolina took over on the 20 with

East Carolina and Appalachian State will play
their Southern Conference championship football
game on Thanksgiving night at 8:30 instead of next
Saturday at 7:00, as originally scheduled, ABC-TV
announoed Saturday.
The game will be carried throughout the
Southeastern regional of the United States and will
be aired in Eastern North Carolina by WCTI in New
Bern, WRAL in Raleigh, and WWAY in Wilming-
"The Appalachian game was expected to be a
big one all year Head Coach Pat Dye said
following the Pirates' first conference loss of the
year at Furman last Saturday. And it's going to be
even bigger now. It's for the conference title. I'm
just happy about one thing, and that is we will be on
TV on Turkey Day
There seem to be a lot of people not too happy
with the change. Business Manager for Athletics
Earlene Leggett reports many calls from people
wanting refunds on their tickets. But, since the
game has been postponed and not cancelled there
will be no refunds.
"Ticket sales were running real high for this
game until the announcement Saturday Leggett
said in a telephone interview. "But they have really
fallen off since ABC announoed the game would be
shown on T.V. We've also gotten many requests fa
, efunds, but that is impossible.
"This would have definitely been the largest
crowd of the year if it would be next Saturday. Ticket
sales are much higher than for Homecoming (21,506

but they are really falling off now. Of course,
Appalachian will bring a big load of fans, especially
now that our students will be out for Thanksgiving
and quarter break
There is a possibility the dormitories and
cafeteria will be held open until the Friday morning
after Thanksgiving.
According to the Housing Office, dorm counsel-
lors and administrators will be canvassing the
student body to see how many wil1 be willing to stay
over fa the game. A final decision on the dam
situatiai is expected ai Thursday. FOUNTAIN
In a telephoie interview yesterday, Coach
Dye said the students have been second to none in
suppat of the team this season and hopes a big
turnout will be on hand fa the championship game.
"Our student body has given us a lift all season.
I hope they'll like the idea of staying over fa the
game a caning back to see it. We' II certainly need
the suppat. Appalachian says they are going to
bring a big aowd and we certainly want to match
"Obviously, the fact of being on TV will be a big
boost to our program and to the university. This
game is fa the Southern Conference championship
and we need the home-field advantage. Appalachian
has a tremendous team. They have, without a doubt,
the best kicking game we have faced all year. They
are probably the best offensive and defensive team
overall we'll have faced all year
The Pirates enter the game with an 8-2 overall
mark and 3-1 in the league. The Mountaineers stand
2-1-1 in the SC and 6-3-1 in all games.

East Carolina University's Athletic Department is fatunate to have
aocesstothe services of an excellent Spats Medicine program which is
headed by a most qualified Certified Athletic Trainer. Rod Compton,
with a Master's Degree fran Bowling Green, is the Chairman of ECU'S
Department of Spats Medicine as well as head of the Spats Medicine
service to athletics.
Along with ATHLETIC TRAINING, the journal of the National
Athletic Trainer's Association (which Compton is edita of), NATA
publishes other materials. In the "Athletic Careers" leaflet, the role of
the athletic trainer is assessed:
The athletic trainer is one of the msot important cogs in a complete
athletic sports program. The trainer's duties consist of prevention of
injuries, immediate first aid for those that are injured, and treatment
and rehabilitation procedures as directed by the team physician.
It is the doctor's responsibility to diagnose and prescribe and the
trainer's duty to carry out the doctor's orders and to keep the coach
informed of the athlete's physical condition.
The most important service offered by a good trainer is better
medical management and the prevention of injuries. Injured athletes will
return to competition more quickly, squad morale will be higher, and
indirectly, a few more games will be won.
If we are to guess at the wath of Spats Medicine in light of number
og games won, we would have to deem ECU'S program effective. This
fall's football team is at the top in Southern Conference standings and
last year's athletic program barely missed capturing the Commis-
sioner's Cup.
Compton defined the goal of Spats Medicine as to provide the bst
possible medical care in the health maintenance of the student-
athletes The staff helping Compton achieve this goal at ECU includes
Assistant Trainer Ronnie Barnes, Jim Keating, Ralph Stevenson,
Johnny Blake, Kirby Patterson, David Maddox, Robert Ruhlam, Keith
Luxton, Tommy Craig, Vivian Johnston, Buron Schulken and Craig
Baker. Liz White is Assistant Trainer fa Women's Athletics.
While Compton heads the service program, Dr. James Bowman, an
athopedic surgeon, is the team physician. He heads up a team of
community-based specialists (including an urologist, an internal
medicine physician, an eye specialist, a dentist, an endodontist) as well
as a family practitioner who cares fa any illnesses to football players
during early weeks of practice befae the University Infirmary opens.
The Infirmary provides the associate team of physicians.
NATA, the Spats Medicine advocate, is responsible fa a number of
recent rules changes in football, just as the Flying Wedge was outlawed
in earlier years fa medical considerations.
Spearing - the use of the head in blocking and tackling - has been
outlawed because of the number of head and neck injuries resulting from
the use of the technique, as well as damage done to other parts of the
body from blows from the helmet.
No downfield blocking below the waist is allowed on punts to cut
down on the great number of knee injuries sustained in this situation.
As has been the rule in high school football fa years, mouthpieces
are now mandatay fa oollege players in collision sports. This has cut
down on almost all dental injuries. If an ECU player suffers a dental
injury while neglecting to wear a mouthpieoe, he is not covered and must
pay fa treatment himself.
The rule reauiring four days of conditioning befae going into pads in
pre-season ca into effect at the urging of Sports Medicine advocates.
"Thisgives pla irstime to get conditioned to the heat and get back in
the swing of things as far as the demands of the sport is oonoerned
aocading to Compton.
Assistant Athletic Directa John Welban says, "I think we've got
one of the best (Sports Medicine services) in the country. They've
waked tremendously with me in wrestling, and I've waked with them
administratively enough to know that they do a great job. They've made
great strides since I've been here. I can see a great difference in the last
few years from nine a ten years ago. Yes, I think we've got one of the
hest Sports Medicine services in the country. I couldn't be any happier
with it
These sentiments are also expressed by all ahers associated with
ECU Athletics. Hats off to ECU Spats Medicine. Look fa "Bill Keyes

the Paladins a 10-7 lead.
Later in the quarter, the
Pirates drove to the Furman 33,

ECU s Marching Pirate Band took a vote yesterday and decided not
to play for the Bucs' final home game on Thanksgiving night.
The Pirates will be playing Appalachian State for the Southern
Conference football championship on regional television.
A band meeting was held yesterday at 3 p.m. and the members
disc jssed the lateness which ABC-TV announoed that the game would
be moved. Band director George Naff said the out-of-state members
stated they had plans and did not have anywhere to stay here anyhow.
"We've got a lot of out-of-staters that have previously made plans
and just don't want to break their plans to stay Naff stated.
The Marching Pirates will be missing out on some much-needed
exposure when the television cameras turn onto the field before the
game to hear Appalachian State's band playing the national anthem.
Yes, the ASU marching band will be here. ASU will also be out for
Thanksgiving break at the time.
"We have a very good band here Naff added. " But we are going to
miss out on the coverage we've always wanted. But, about thirty per
cent of the team will definitely not play. And we would sound pretty bad
with just sixty to seventy per cent of the members playing. We would be

Cagers try to forget last year
Sports Features Correspondent
Prognosticators often look at
basketball teams in light of their
performance during the previous
season. But since the East
Carolina Pirates had a disap-
pointing 1975-76 season and
a number of last year's players
are missing from the new roster,
Coach Dave Pat ton will buy none
of the prognosticators' standards
of measurement.
Patton says, "Each team
makes and establishes its own
characters. This year's sucess
will depend entirely upon per-
formances this year and have
nothing to do with performa ices
of last year. I don't care to
mention last year anymore. This
is a new group, and fa the most
part, a group not associated with
last year. We will not in any way
pressure ourselves with what
happened last vear
Al Edwards and Earl Garner
have graduated and a few other
including starter Reggie Lee are
not returning. But Patton is
optimistic in his own assessment
of the team's chances for an
outstanding season with the likes
of 6-9 center Larry Hunt and front
linemen Tyron Edwards and Greg
Cornelius returning. (Cornelius
sat out last season after transfer-
ring from Stanford University in
Alabama but is now familiar with
Patton's system as well as his
teammates' style of play.)
Freshmen Herb Gray (6-7),
Herb Krusen (6-5), and Kyle
Powers (6-5) will all contribute a
great deal in the front line.
Sophomores Louis Crosby,
named to last year's All-Rookie
team in the Southern Conference,
and Billy Dineen return at guards
with Don Whitaker, a transfer
from Louisburg who was one of
the top junior college guards in
the area fa the past two seasons,
and Jim Ramsey, who played well
in the East-West All-Star game
last summer, expected to play
a lot.
In reference to strategy, Pat-
ton says, "We will try and get our
running game established again
this year. One area I'm impressed
with is in that we can rebound,
get it down the floa, and most
important, get it in the hole. Our
rebounding and shooting should
be greatly improved
Patton continues, "It remains
to be seen just how good we'll be.
We've got good kids who are
waking hard and doing every-
thing we ask of them. A lot will be
determined by how quickly our
young kids come around. But
they're doing everything we ask
of them. We couldn't ask fa

Host Furman. VCU
Swim team opens season
Staff Writer
The prospects of the ECU'S
men's swim team being Southern
Conference champions again
looks excellent as they prepare for
the season.
The season will begin Satur-
day when ECU will play host to
Furman and Virginia Common-
wealth University (VCU) at the
Minges Natatorium.
The team was first in the
oonferenoe last year and will be
vying for its eleventh consecutive
championship. ECU'S only losses
last year were to Carolina and
State. Perhaps the nicest surprise
of 75-76 was when the Bucs
drowned Maryland 77-36.
Coach Ray Scharf will be head
coach again this year. Scharf
came to ECU in 1967, when he
was assistant coach for one year,
and has been head coach since
then except for the first year.
As head coach, Scharf has not
lost a single oonferenoe meet.
"I'm very optimistic about the
team this year, but then I'm
always optimistic commented
Scharf I can say we are stronger
than last year. We are always
reorganizing and changing for the
better. There are thirty-one
swimmers and three divers on the
team this year. Eight of these
men are newcomers and they all
show excellent potential.
"We only lost one senior last
year, so we have about the same
team as last year. The majority of
the team has experience and they
have proven themselves by set-
ting numerous new records.
"My best returning swimmer
has to be John Tudor. Tudor does
well in all events and I think he
has the potential to be one of the
best in the nation Scharf added.
Tudor, a native ot Greens-
boro, broke two varsity reoords
last year. He became the South-
ern Conference champion in the
500 yard freestyle. A freshman
last year, Tudor also set a new
varsity record in the 400 yard
freestyle. Tudor is expected to do
well this year and he proved this
by winning the Purple-Gold Inter-
squad meet of November 11.
Stewart Mann, a sophomore,
will be aiding the team again this
year. Mann was the Southern
Conference champion in the
individual medley and the 200
yard backstroke. He set a new
varsity record last year in the
individual medley.
Also back is Steve Ruedlinger,
a senior from Altamonte Springs,
Fla. As a co-captain last year,
Ruedlinger was the Southern
Conference champion in the 100
and 200 yard butterfly events.
David Kirkman, a senior from
Chapel Hill, will lead the team
this year as captain. Kirkman was
the conference champion in the
200 yard breastroke.
Tomas Palmgren of Finland is
back this year. As a sophomore
last year he set a new varsity
record in the 400 yard individual
medley. Palmgren has held the
Finnish national championship in
the freestyle and the individual
Fellow countryman Eero
Elovaara joined the team this
year. As a long distance swim-
mer, Elovaara will also oompete
in the individual medley.
Freshmen M ichael Hennessey
and Jim Brunner will be joining
veteran Lund Sox (Scratch to his
team mates) on the diving boards
this year. Sox was the state diving
champion of 1974.
"We're not like State and
Carolina who recruit Olympians
and world record holders said
Scharf. "We usually get the
average guy and through alot of
work he does well. I would say we
have the most dedicated team on
the campus. These men have
double workouts daily. They
begin in the morning at 6:45 and
swim until 8.15. After classes
they practice from 3.15 to 5 30 or
six o'clock.
"They average between six
and twelve thousand yards daily.
It is this dedication and work that
wins swim meets. We've got a
good team this year and I would
like to see them supported this
year like they have been in the
The team has twelve meets
and two championship meets this
year, starting with the tri-meet
with Furman and VCU Saturday
at 12 p.m. at Minges Natatorium.

Sports Features Correspondent
The East Carolina Football
Guide devotes a half page to the
player profile on Willie Hawkins.
Between the great amount of
statistical facts are such de-
scriptive phrases as "excellent
speed and quickness and ability"
and "not only runs well but is

The 5-11, 190 pound running
back from nearby Grimesland
oould also be described as a cross
between the Roadrunner (with his
speed, quickness, and smarts), a
Porche 911 S (with his ability to
outmaneuver the opposition and
tight walk the sidelines beyond

after he puts the move on a
oornerback and darts to paydirt,
he flashes that big toothy grin
that is also a part of the Willie
Hawkins' trademark.
Performance is not always the
main topic of a conversation about
Hawkins, for it is accepted fact
that when "the Hawk" gets the
football, something happens. (In
Hawkins' first two years at
ECU he rushed for more than five
yards per carry each year.) The
main topic of conversation is how
he carries himself in regard to his
performance. In the opener a-
gainst Southern Miss, Hawkins
carried 11 times for a total of 128
yards. He ran off the field quietly
- though with that grin - and
responded to fans' adulatory
remarks only with gracious thank
In the Citadel game he rushed
for only 17 yards on a skimpy four

have carried the ball twenty
times, but he showed no displea-

Willie Hawkins
White-shoed number 33 plays
a quiet role on the Pirates'
football team. When given the
ball, he responds favorably to the
fans' delight. But when he is used
chiefly as a blocker in other
games, he takes it all in stride.
His biggest concern is the success
of the team. When it comes to
being a so-called team player,
Willie Hawkins oould have writ-
ten the book.
