McGinnis faces
possible funds
SGA Reporter
The SGA, last evening, pas-
sed a resolution to the North
Carolina General Assembly in
support of funding fa the renova-
tion of McGinnis Auditorium.
According to the resolution,
"physical conditions of McGinnis
Auditorium are in bad disrepair,
such as little space backstage,
seating area uncomfortable and
past the point of repair, lobby
facilities inadequate, and shop
facilities are inadequate at best
"This resolution is to prove
that the students of ECU are
behind the renovation of McGin-
nis Auditorium, rather than just
the students of the Drama
Department, according to Legis-
lator David Eason.
The building funds for ECU
cannot support such an expan-
sion, (estimated at $2.5 million),
according to the resolution.
A resolution approving Karen
Harloe as Attorney General pas-
sed unanimously.
Bills introduced include an
appropriation to the Office of
Academic Affairs for retreats for
the psychology department and the
Parks and Recreation Dept.

Violent searches
The shoddy manner in which Greenville
pd ice-aided by a campus security officer-conducted
four room searches in two dormitories during
November shows little regard fa privacy, personal
property and civil rights of innocent students.
Only one of the searches turned up illegal drugs.
However, one search resulted in the illegal
confiscation of a pipe. Although no dope was found,
police told the occupant of the room being searched
that possession of a pipe was against university
regulations. Chief of Campus Security Joe Calder
later admitted there is no such policy, but police have
not returned the pipe to its owner. Police searched
another room while the occupants were gone. Again
no dope was discovered, but the room was
ransacked. A stereo speaker belonging to one of the
occupants was found lying on the floor with a dent in
it, but no one in either the Greenville Police
Department a Campus Security Office has offered to
make restitution.
In addition to these storm trooper tactics, police
exhibited a great lack of professionalism in obtaining
the warrants. In at least two of the searches the
names indicated on the warrants were not those of the
occupants of the rooms. Calder told FOUNTAIN-
HEAD that the correct names are not important nor
legally required on warrants as they are issued fa
searching premises not individuals. But, he also said
there was no reason fa the names to be wrong when
all the infamatiai needed to make the warrant
accurate was available in the campus security office.
State and federal laws obligate city and campus
polioe to prevent the distribution of illegal drugs and
to apprehend those unlawfully involved in this
activity. But when officers make mistakes in the
perfamanoe of this duty it is usually the innocent
citizen who suffers. To assure fewer blundered
searches in the future, those officers involved in this
November nightmare should be officially reprimand-
ed fa their tactics. Campus and city officials should
investigate these officers' conduct during the
searches and if evidence demands it, proper legal
action should be taken.

Textbooks fill publishing demand
(CPS)-When students begin
studying for their first economics
exam, chances are they will
overlook one very rich lesson in
basic supply and demand theory.
That textbook, for which the
student has probably supplied
between $13 to $15, is happily
and steadily filling the pub-
lisher's demand.
The textbook industry is a
financial oasis in the publishing
business as new markets open up
in adult education, women's
studies and text which one
leading publisher says are down-
shifted for the increasing number
of junior colleges, oommunity
colleges and night school oourses.
There is also a "return to basics
in education philosophy in 1976
reports Jim Bradford at Scott,
Foresman and Co. publishers.
This trend marks a change
from the past five years. "In
1971, we were still in Vietnam.
Today, students are more in-
terested in what this course will
do for them in terms of ooping
with the world. There is a focus
on the consumer side of eco-
nomics Bradford said.
Textbooks are being geared
more toward practical education.
Today a student can open a
textbook and learn how to borrow
money for a new car, finance a
house, or even balance a check-
book, instead of confronting one
hundred years of historical data.
In fact, the all-time best-seller on
the college textbook charts is a
volume called Accounting Prin-
aples by C. Rollin Niswonger and
PhihipC. Fess which has been on
the list for 2444 weeks and is in its
eleventh edition. And for anyone
who thought that textbooks exist-
ed only fa that rare student who
is adept at memorizing dates and
figures, Prentice-Hall publishers
put out a text called Life
Insurance that has been selling
steadily since 1912. The new
edition is priced at $15.95 and is
expected to sell 25,000 oopies in
But the words "new edition"
are enough to bring tears to the
eyes of a student taking intro-
ductory oourses like economics or
political science. These courses
often require texts which are
revised regularly and that means
that a student cannot buy the
book used and possibly save as
much as fifty percent.
Fa the publisher, though, the
used book business is a pain in
the profits. In fact, one of the
main reasons fa revisions, ac-
cording to a leading college
textbook publisher, is to cut out
the used book market. Apparently
there is no money fa publishers
in used books.
Barnes and Noble, which
operates used book franchises,
buys books back at 40 percent of
the aiginal oost and resells them
at 60 percent. The autha of the
book being resold receives no
royalties as songwriters do.
The publisher pf the college
textbook must also deal with an
interesting fam of rip-off, that of
the free sample. Periodically,
publishers will distribute thou-
sands of complimentary books to
professas fa possible sales a
reviews. However, these books
are often sold to the used book
It oost a publisher between $3
and $5 to give away a $12 text, fa
example, and often that text
ends up on the eyecatching table
marked 60-70 cents. Scott, Fores-
man and Co. recently gave away
nearly 10,000 copies of a new
biology text but it turned out to be
a fruitless endeava. A souroe of
the publishing oompany repated
that these conplimentary editiois
would probably be sold by the
professas fa their own profit and

Journalism review cites
racial bias in newspapers
(LNS)0n October 30, 1975,
the body of a 15-year-old white
teenager, Martha Moxley, was
discovered in the exclusive Belle
Haven section of Greenwich,
Connecticut. She had been beaten
to death with a golf club. In the
seven days that followed, the New
York Times, the New York Daily
News and the New York Post
?voted almost 1,800 lines and
i ne photographs to her death.
In those same seven days,
h rive people were murdered in
Harlem. The Post devoted 85
lines and no photos to four of the
twelve, and the News was com-
pletely silent about all twelve
victims. The Times mentioned
five of the victims without photos,
while running front stories about
the sentencing of a Harlem youth
for the murder of a young white in
New York.
A New York Daily News
feature writer gathered these
figures for an article which
appeared in the recent issue of
MORE, a journalism review. The
article shows how the homicide

York dailies is one way the papers

writer says, is that "blacks and
hispanics commit crimes while
their role as victims is slight.
Victims are white. And the closer
they are to the middle-dass status
of the papers' editors, the bigger
the story
One example presented in the
MORE article concerned the
three papers' coverage of an
incident on June 25,1975. On that
day. a 32-year-old black man,
Philip Wright, was shot to death
by two white New York City
Of the nine shots which struck
Wright, five were in his back, and
according to one witness, some of
the shots were fired after Wright
lay on the ground. The Guar-
dians' Association, an organiza-
tion of black members of the New
York Police Department, was
especially aitical about the shots
in the back.
But in the stories that ran in
the News and Times the two days
following the murder (the Post
ignored the stay canpletely) no
mention was made of conflicting
aocounts a of the Guardians'
questioning. Instead, what was
prominent in both stales, the
MORE articles point out, was
the fact that Wright had served
time in prison and had a histay of
mental illness. The opening para-

almost a third of the story

LNS spoke with Matthew
Myers - staff attaney fa the
American Civil Liberties Union's
Natioial Prison Project - to get
his perspective on the signi-
ficance of the Supreme Court
"In my opinion, there's a dual
significance Myers began.
"First of all, despite the fact that
the lower courts have always
recognized prisoners' rights to
medical care, this is the first time
that the Supreme has considpred
the issue and decideu that
prisoners do have a constitutional
right to adequate medical care.
To that extent it's an impatant
statement of approval of the lower
court's decisions.
"But the focus an deliberate'
indifference is unfortunate
Myers oontinued, "because it
focuses on the matter of intention
- as opposed to the quality of care
"The main question will lie in
the court's interpretation of the
term deliberate and that's too
early to predict Myers said.
As fa the impact of the
decision Myers felt it could lead
to mae prisoners filing federal
court suits.
"But realistically it won't
make too much difference he
oontinued. "Maybe some mae
cases, but it went change what
already is in terms of the poa
medical care prisoners continue
to receive.
"There are two problems
Myers explained. "First, most
prisons are woefully understaffed
in terms of medical personnel. So
it is not unusual fa prisoners to
receive inadequate medical care
simpiy because there are not
enough medical personnel a-

prison system, and in the hostility
and distrust that develops be-
tween prisoners and prison staff,

Prison guards don't listen to
prisoners oomplaints, and so it's
not infrequent at all that serious
medical problems go undiag-

The question of actually a-
warding a prisoner damages once
a case has gone to court is a whole
other problem. "Judges and
juries tend to empathize with
prison staff as opposed to pri-
soners, Myers noted. "They
tend to believe that guards have a
hard enough time as it is, so
we're not going to hold them

'Richard II'
Photo by Brian ototier �
The play Richard the II is song and fire; Richard the II the
production is not What first appears as nervousness on the part of the
players manifests itself in the strangling character of Richard (Martin
Thompson) as a lack of role definition.
There are two directions in which modern theatre can take the
genius of Shakespeare. The players can do a faithful rendition of his
lines (which takes remarkable talent), attempting to recreate the
characters as Shakespeare held them, or they can re-vitalize the work
with a contemporary interpretation of his characters, using the lines
as a careful transition.
The flaw in this work is that it chooses to do neither, but rather
vacillates between attempting to delineate contemporary flaws (and
individuals), and portraying the England Shakespeare knew. This is
either in decisiveness a monumental cowardice on the part of the
director and it is this flaw that weakens what is otherwise a fine
Nowhere is the fault of weak interpretation more evident in the
energetic, if confused performance of Thompson in the lead role.
Richard was a poet, an arrogant, a charmer, a victim of bad counsel,
but never a fop a a weakling. There is credence to the theory that he
was a homosexual, but tne boy of 14 who leads the army against the
peasants, invades Ireland, faces his abdication and death with
clenched fists, is simply no overt gay. The production seemed unable to
ate the difference between his garnering bad counsel and his being
sensuously massaged by his lads. There are no stage directions in
Shakespeare and this reviewer canna see the rationale fa depicting
Richard as so effeminate.
This is the problem with Thompson's perfamance. While being
directed to play the fop, his lines read of that of a man of dignity. All of
Thompson's strong scenes are vapid and underplayed. Richard's
moments in the tower; his ay of "Will no one say Amen9' at the
instant of abdication are indicative of monumental strength and
bitterness on Richard's part.
Richard is foolish and thoughtless, but he is tender and kind. He is
so much mae and less the character patrayed, that the production as
a whole drops in intensity. It depends on the beauty of Shakespeare's
lyrics and the inherent tragedy of loss fa its effectiveness.
In that the interpretation was weak and shatsighted, Thanpsai
as adequate in his patrayal of Richard. One must consider that he
night have been infinitely beer had he been allowed the range his
dialogue indicates. He occasionally iost the sense of Richard's youth,
but he displayed fierce energy and pain. This is one of Shakespeare's
hardest (and longest) roles. It takes courage to attempt it.
The other leads were good, if far less faboding. Rodney Freeze as
Boilingbrook fell victim to terminal eyebrow occasionally, yet his
monologues of challenge and banishment were strong. Mowbray
(Howell Brinkley) seemed awkward and stiff in comparison as he felt
the need to growl his lines, rather than generate emotion. He and John
of Gaunt (Steve Anderson) had no concept of what Shakespeare felt
was hona, devotion and chivalry.
Anderson muttered his lines and stumbled about the stage in
attempting to play the aged Duke. M ick Godwin as Edmund, had a role
of equal merit yet did infinitely mae with it. He was able to portray the
difference in age as the dignifying and debilitating process it is,
without collapsing onstage.
The remainder of the players (with an exception to be naed) are
generally harible, with the Duke of Aumerle (Dan Nichols), Fitzwater
(Bill Vann), and the Duchess of Yak (Rosalie Jacobs) being the notable
exceptions. Richard'scounselas(Kurt Busham, Robert Smith, Aubrey
Simpson) and Sir Saoop (Robert Johnson) should seriously consder
getting nai-speaking parts in an agricultural documentary befae
appearing oi stage again. They could learn much from an asparagus.
The best perfamance has yet to be noted, and I have saved it fa
the close, that it might be remembered above all others. Suzanne
Howell as Queen Isabel, is quite simply the finest serious dramatic
perfamer that this reviewer has ever seen on an ECU stage. She
displayed enamous sensitivity in her interpretation and she left one
seeing her asanempath, holding to her love fa Richaraasaily wanen
can love, queen a peasant. Though not overly given to flowery praise,
I contend, Miss Howell, you are Isabel as Shakespeare intended; one
cannot say mae.
The technical parts of the production were as they generally are in
ECU productions; excellent. The costumes and props were realistic
without being gaudy, and while I doubt the eraaty of Richard's turban

Study reveals crowding as cause of stress
Two may be company and
three a crowd. But according to
Rutgers University psychology
department, four may be the
making of a disaster. After three
years of study, a research project
headed by Dr. Yakov Epstein
concluded that crowded condi-
tions are one of the primary
causes of stress.
To determine this, four stu-
dents at a time were placed in a
tiny cubicle fa two- to three-hour
periods, where they were obser-
ved on camera. The 800 a so who
volunteered to' be subjected to
crowd stress were paid $3.00 per
hour fa their discomfort. While
men and women apparently suf-
fered the same degree of stress,
their reactions were sharply divi-
ded, Dr. Epstein revealed.
"The men appeared calm, as
if they were afraid to reveal their
discomfort the associate profes-
sa said. "The wanen subjects
did not complain but made
continual facial expressions to
each other, not only indicating
their pain, but their ocmmisera-
tion. The men looked straight
ahead, refusing to meet other's
Regardless of their outward
reactions, their inner tensions
were recaded by the use of a skin
oonducter, which measured their
psycho-psychological arousal.
Curiously, the results of the
experiment will be tawarded to
masstranspatatioi systems, who
will use the data to determine
seating configurations. But the
knowledge is not being applied in
the academic surroundings that
sponsaed the study.
Dr. Epstein is teaching a
course in basic psychology that
has been over-subscribed by 20
students. The classroom seats 80
and there are 100 who signed up
fa the oourse. It means, says Dr.
Epstein, that there will be
consistent class cutting and un-
necessary distraction.
"I'll be irritated watching
students scramble fa seats. This
has to distract me while I'm
lecturing Dr. Epstein contends.
Asa result of his study as well
as his crowded classroom, Dr.
Epstein intends to conduct his
own experiment next semester.
"I plan to teach the course in
two sections. One will be over-
crowded and one will be under-
crowded. In that way, we can
determine if there is a difference
in comprehension between the
Dr. Epstein also conducted a
mini-study of damitay aowding
two years ago, when Rutgers
University was faced to house
three students in rooms designed
fa two.
"We found there was greater
stress among the women students
than the men simply because
the women were mae particular
about the way their rooms were
furnished and deoaated. As a
result, they spent mae time in
their quarters and had mae
oppatunity to get in each other's
way. The men students, on the
other hand, oouldn't care less
what their rooms looked like and
what a mess they left. Sinoe they
spent as little time in their rooms
as possible, there was less
likelihood of tension
Rutgers has since discon-
tinued its tripling policy.
In another stress experiment,

Trivia contest
The first ever Intramural Sports Trivia contest got underway
Monday with ten teams competing in the first-round eliminations.
Tonight at 5 p.m. the semifinals and finals will begin.
The Sports Trivia contest covers two areas; one concerns major
league baseball and the other deals with East Carolina athletics. Last
night's first round proved interesting and more of the same is expected
from the final four teams tonight.
This is a first-time event for the intramural department and
although the number of teams involved are fewer than were expected
to begin with, the teams involved were pretty well-prepared for the
questions asked.
Men's basketball play got underway last week and, despite a few
upsets, everything went pretty much as expected. The early season
chcMoe as the team to beat is the Mean Machine. The Mean Machine
rolled to an 89-19 win last week and seem on their way to a title in the
independent league.
In the fraternity league, where all the teams are grouped in one
division for the first time ever, the Kappa Alphas, Kappa Alpha Psi
and Kappa Sigmas all won to take the early-season lead. Among the
biggest upsets in the league were the Kappa Sigs upset over Tau
Kappa Epsilon and the upset of Lambda Chi Alpha by the Sig Eps.
Fraternity power Pi Kappa Phi was idle the first week but opens its
season tonight with a game against Phi Kappa Tau. The Pi Kapps are
the defending fraternity champions.
The club division finds not one, but two. teams from the Phi Epsilon
Kappa physical education fraternity unbeaten after the first week. Both
teams, the Dunkersand the Bucs, escaped with narrow victories in the
first week of play. Baptist Student Union is also one of the favorites in
the club division, as is the FCA team. FCA was impressive in a
hard-fought 40-39 win over Sports Machine.
The dormitory league always is the largest, with 56 teams this year.
and the competition is usually the most intense. Leading the way after
the first week of play are the Belk Nuttie Buddies, the Scott Cavaliers
and the Belk Bullets. Dorm play really gets underway tonight as every
team is on tap through Wednesday
Getting back to the men's independent league where the Mean
Machine is placed, other top teams will be last year s campus
champion the Herb Superbs, the Revised Figures, the Rockets and the
Tn G's. Of all the four divisions the independent division is probably
the toughest.
This season there will be three top ten men's rankings published.
Two will appear in thisoolumn and a third will appear in the Intramural
newsletter which comes out on Monday afternoons. The two in this
column will come from this writer and Marty Martinez, who is in
charge of the basketball intramural program. Martinez considers
himself an expert on ranking the teams as for myself, well I guess more
than I pick. Anyway we shall see which of us fairs the best. In addition,
tinez and myself will pick the teams in each division that we feel
have the best chance to make the all-campus championship. We will be
v another expert progosticator in Walt Estes and we will
inge these picks each week to bring them up-to-date.
The only hangup with Estes is that he plays for the Phi Epsilon
Kappa Dunkers. so if you see their name in the standings too often, you
know there is some pressure being applied Anyway, here are the first
��k spicks.

In women's play 35 teams enter the first week of play. There are a
number of good teams in the four divisions, but three stand out as what
can be termed as really super teams from pre-season assessments.
These teams are Hypertension, Nock's Knockers and the Baptist
Student Union. One other team, the Delta Zetas in the sorority
division, can be considered a dark horse and should cop the fourth
playoff spot come February. The in-house favorite around Memorial
Gym comes down to a toss-up between the BSU team and
Broom Ball will be offered as an intramural sport this winter. Fa
those unfamiliar with the game it is played with the same rules as
hockey but tennis shoes are used instead of skates and a broom and
rubber ball is used instead of hockey sticks and a puck. The games will
be played in the afternoon at the Twins Rink Recreation Center when
school resumes after break. Four men and four women will play on a
team at one time, but as many as 16 may be on a team's roster. This
competition falls under the co-rec program. Any team interested in
competing must turn in a roster by Thursday, December 16.

ECU'S men's swim team put it
all together here at the Minges
Natatorium Saturday when they
beat Appalachian 83-24. East
Carolina now stands 8-0 overall
anc1 2-0 in the conference.
An interesting point to bring
out is ECU has never lost a dual
meet against a Southern Con-
ference opponent since being
eligible for the title in 1965-66.
The team has a perfect 24-0
record against Southern Con-
ference teams. Besides adding to
their record of wins, the team set
eight new meet records and John
Tudor set a new varsity mark.
ECU won both of the relays;
the 400 yard medley and the 400
yard freestyle. Members of the
400 yard medley were Bryan
Bolton, David Kirkman, who is
team captain. Keith Wade, and
Ronald Schnell. The 400 freestyle
relay team was composed of John
McCauley. Ted Nieman, Billy
Thane and John Tuda.
Doug Bnndley put five points
on the board when he won the
1000 yard freestyle. Bnndley was
assisted by Steve Ruedhnger.
who placed third in the event.
As well as swimming in the
400 yard freestyle relay Thane
also swam and won the 200 yard
freestyle event. Stewart Mann
snatched the number two spot in
that event.
John McCauley swam two
events also and won the 50 yard
freestyle and set a new meet
record in the event. Mike Coomes
backed McCauley by taking se-
John Tuda. who is expected to
have an excellent year, won the
200 yard individual medley and
set a new varsity reoad as he
clocked in 1.58.49. Joe Kushy
grabbed second.
In the 200 yard butterfly Keith
Wade and Mark Lovette placed
first and second, respectively.
Wade held the varsity record in
this event last year.
John Pero won the 100 yard
freestyle and Pierre Ouellet
placed second. ECU also won
another freestyle event when Ted
Nieman. a freshman from Winter
Park, Fla won the 500 yard
Dave Moodie of Canada won
the 200 yard backstroke and
Bryan Bolton swam well enough
to take second.
Dave Kirkman besides swim-
ming in the medley relay put five
points on the board when he won
the 200 yard breaststroke.
In diving, Stewart Mann won
on the one-meter board with
188.80 pants while rival Gilbert
had 184.20 pants. ASU's Gilbert
took first on the three-meter
So the team is off to its usual
good start and is oompiling new
records all the time. The team's
next meet is on Jan. 13 when they
take on the University of Maine at
Minges Natataium.

After the first period, the

gold medalist John Peterson
came into the match with a 5-0
record and was expected to pin
freshman Jay Dever quickly. But
Dever would have none of it. The
two men wrestled to a scoreless
tie in the first period. Every time
they would wrestle off the mat,
Dever would excitedly run back to
the middle of the circle for
another faceoff with his highly-
touted opponent. Peterson took
the position in the second period,
but oould not turn his young
opponent over for a pin. The score
remained 0-0 going into the third
and final stanza.
The crowd was into this
match, wildly cheering Dever's
every move. Peterson was on
bottom for the third period and
used his experience to escape in
just 11 seconds to take a 1-0 lead.
Seven seoonds later, the referee
awarded Peterson another point
when he said Dever was wrestling
close to the edge of the mat so as
not to be taken down. Dever, now
tiring some, was taken down with
233 left in the match. Peterson
received another point when the
referee called Dever fa stalling
with 1 36 left.
Peterson finally pinned Dever
with just 56 seoonds left in the
match. Wei born was praising

the match.

said after the meet. "We are
dominating these other schools. If
they had scored this meet we
would have won by an outrageous
"The guys were really loose
for this meet he added. "There
were some kids running age-
group events on the track before
the meet and a little girl was
out-running the boys in her race
Our team was leading the cheer-
ing for the girl. They were loose
The team was loose as the
meet started also as they took
'our first places and took as many
as four sports in some events
against N.C. State, Georgia Tech,
Furman, South Carolina, Duke,
Virginia State, Pembroke State,
Appalachian State, Western
Carolina, North Carolina Central,
and St. Augustine.
The mile relay was the
epitome of the Pirates' domi-
nation as they put three teams on
the track and took first, third and
fifth places. ECU'S 'B' team of
Ben Dunkenfield, Valdez Chavis,
James Freeman, and Jay Pirdy
won the race with a time of
331.3. The Pirates' A' team took
third in 332.5 while the'C squad
was fifth in 333.5.
The Pirates took four of the
five places in the 60 yard dash.
Freshman Otis Melvin won with a
time of 6.2 while Larry Austin
took second, also in 6.2. Fresh-
man Jimmy Rankins took fourth
in 6.3 while Donnie Mack placed
fifth in the same time.
Another freshman, Billy
Etcinson, won the long jump with
a leap of 23-2 34, while Mike
Hodge was second just a quarter
inch behind. Herman Mdntyre
took fifth position with a jump of
Marvin Rankins oontinued'his
winning ways in the 60 yard high
hurdles as he took the race in 7.2.
Rankins has run the race five
times this winter and has yet to
run worse than 7.3.
In the triple jump. Mdntyre
had his career best leap in
finishing third. His jump of 49-6
12 was two inches better than he
did last year. George Jackson
placed fourth in the event in 47-9,
while Hodge finished fifth in 47-7.
In the other events, Charlie
Moss took third in the 440 (52.2),
Jim Willett and Jim Green placed
fourth and fifth, respectively, in
the 880 with times of 2.C1 and
2:02. James Freeman, Valdez
Chavis, and Ben Dunkenfield took
third, fourth and fifth in the 600.
"We've been waking really
hard and I hope the good times
will continue Frye went on.
"We certainly need to keep it
In other developments over
the weekend, East Carolina an-
nounced the signing of high
school all-America sprinter
William Fields from nearby New
Fields, a senior at New Bern
High School, was one of the top
performers at the state track meet
last year in Raleigh. He has
registered times of 9.4 in the 100
yard dash, 21.1 in the 220 yard
dash, and 47.9 in the 440.
Fields has been recruited
extensively by all the top track
schools in the nation: Arizona,
Arizona St Tennessee, Clemson,
North Carolina, Maryland and
N.C. State.
"We are certainly glad
William dedded on ECU Frye
said. "Tennessee has one of the

fro the perimeter on most oc-
casions. However, the Terrapins
ruled the offensive boards and
picked up many 'cheap' baskets
off rebounds. Patton oommented
on the Pirates being out-re-
bounded 45-32 in the game.
"Their second shots and
offensive rebounding definitely
won the game fa them. We need
to wak ai our rebounding. It can
get a helluva lot better. They also
hurt us on the fast break. We
need to wak ai our transition
from offense to defense
When asked about pjaying the

knew we'd have to play the zone

led the Terrapins in scaing with
15 points and eight rebounds.
Brad Davis bucketed 12 points
while Gibson and Hunter hit fa
ten each. Gibson led the Terps in
rebounding with nine.
Herb Gray, a Pirate freshman
from Seat Pleasant, Md made
his Homecoming a good one by
hitting seven of 11 shots from the
field and three of three from the
free throw line fa 17 points He
also pulled five rebounds. He
exdted the aowd a ooupl? of

"Herb played an excellent

stated. "He really looked good

When asked about Gray's
good shooting after being sub-par
in field goal percentage in earlier
games, Patton replied, "Herb's
been waking real hard in radios
on his jump sha. I knew he'd
come around
Gray had a couple of reasons
fa the turnaround in shooting,
"I knew all my family and
friends would be hae at the
game; I didn't want to make a bad
showing. Each year, I go into a
shooting slump. I hope it is gone
fa this seasai. Playing well up
hae meant ala to me. I just wish
