STRIKERS for WASHINGTON POST
LNS photo, j
There is a PRC meeting
Thursday, Dec. 16at 7 p.m. in the
Post press operators went to trial
December 6 on riot, conspiracy
and assault charges stemming
from their strike which began
October 1, 1975.
In an effort to debilitate the
union,the Post hired scab workers
at the beginning of the strike and
then got a boost from the
government which initiated a nine
month long grand jury investiga-
tion and indicted the 15 striking
press operators this summer.
While the Washington Post re-
sumed full production, first using
out-of-town presses and then scab
workers trained in Oklahoma,
soon after the strike began, the
press operators are still walking
the picket lines fourteen months
The press operators won two
important motions in pre-trial
hearings held in November. The
first concerns individual question-
ing of prospective jurors, which
will follow questioning by compu-
ter questionaire and group ques-
tioning. Individual questioning is
viewed by the press operators as
one step toward countering the
extensive pre-trial prejudicial pu-
blicity against them.
A study conducted in Wash-
ington, D.C. by the National Jury
Project showed that while 68 pf
those questioned felt they could
be fair and impartial jurors in the
case, 57.2 of the same group
said they thought the press
operators were guilty of destroy-
ing Post presses on the first uay
of the strike.
Ruling on a second pre-trial
motion, Judge Sylvia Bacon deci-
ded to consolidate the press
operators' trials after defense
attorneys argued tnat separate
trials would unnecessarily extend
Reducing the impact of the
favorabel decisions, however, the
judge decided to exclude the
defendants from the jury selec-
tion process. The press operators
are very critical of this move to
limit their participation in the
U.S. Attorney Robert Chap-
man has announced that he will
spend three to four weeks presen-
ting the prosecution's case.
"We knew all along that the
prosecution would drown the
jurors in detail a defense
committee spokesperson respon-
ded. "That's the only way it could
obscure the issue of this trial: the
Washington Post's provocative
campaign to bust Union Local 6
It is expected that the prose-
cution will attempt to avoid this
union-busting and use the isue of
"violence" to sway public opinion
against the press operators a
tactic they have used for the past
year. On the first day of the
strike, for instance, the Post
began a J. Walter Thompson
Advertising Agency blitz publici-
zing the "millions" of dollars in
damage done to Washington Post
presses. Later, it was shown that
$13,000 was spent on repairs.
Most recently, the prosecution
sought a delay in a judge's order
that they turn over certain grand
jury testimony which would tend
to help the defense. The prosecu-
tion based its appeal on the
grounds that prosecution witnes-
ses were in danger of physical
attack by the indicted press
Yet just before the pre-trial
hearings, on September 28, a
striker, Harry Manning, was
assaulted on the picket line, by an
employee of the Post's mail room.
The union filed an official com-
plaint with the District of Colum-
bia Bar Association pointing out
that U.S. Attorney Earl Silbert
found no difficulty prosecuting
striking press operators, but
refused to punish a clear-cut
case of assault in which someone
on the side of the management
was accused of a crime.

Man for all seasons
The Dutch called him Sinter-Klass and in New

of legendary renown would bring gifts to the settlers'
children. The English later took over the settlement

Washington Irving described this popular benefactor
as a rotund, jolly figure, wearing a wide-brimmed hat

in 1882, provided Santa Claus with reindeer and a

Tree tradition wastes ecology
By LARRY LIE BE RM AN
It is ecologically irresponsible to continue the
modern American tradition of the throw-away
Millions of pine and fir trees are wasted each
year after the Christmas season is over. Christmas
trees are big business and those that sell them
should be held responsible for this waste.
Many families buy live trees from nurseries and
plant them afterwards. Mrs. Nellie Riley at
Sunshine Garden Center said they sell out of their
live trees every year and that about 200 were sold
this year. The live trees range in cost from $15 to $36
and the cut trees range from $9 to $45.
"A lot of people feel like if they are going to
spend $15 on a tree why not get one that can be
planted afterwards said Riley. She said �me
corporations bought live trees, such as Proctor and
Gamble who will plant the trees on their grounds
after the New Year.The White Pine and the Norway
Spruce adapt best to this climate.
Live trees are less messy because they do not
shed their needles as easily as cut trees. There is
also less danger of fire since they are not as dry.
The people who do not want to plant the trees in
their yard or do not have a yard could donate the
trees to an ecology club, like Sierra Club, who would
plant the trees where there is severe erosion. The
trees could even be used to reforest the land which
One family buys a pine or spruce tree each year
and plants it in their yard to mark the number of
Christmas' that have been celebrated in the. home.
To be so wasteful seems to contradict the worldly
caring which develops during the Thanksgiving and
Christmas holidays. The churches which run
Christmas tree sales should stop this unnecessary
waste of one of America's greatest assets.
With an energy crisis looming in the near future
it is foolish to continue this tradition of throwing
away Christmas trees. It is the duty of the press, the
conservation groups, and the businesses who sell
the trees to inform the public so that it will see the
ecological tragedy of disposable Christmas trees and
begin demanding the live variety.

The Roxy Music Arts and Crafts Center in
Greenville may be faced to close in January unless

The Roxy has been open for the past two years

everyone calls him. the financial situation is dismal
but not hopeless.
Shep readily admits that there is no profit made
on any of the varied productions put on at The Roxy.
The main source of capital is from the concession
sale of baked goods, plants, and the like combined
with small, at the door donations.
These funds allow The Roxy to make enough to

Prof, shows brain
By LINDA CHERRY
Dr. Charles Cliett of the ECU
psychology department has re-
cently discovered, by experi-
ments on four groups of ECU
students, that the left hemisphere
of the brain is quicker to a specific
type of stimuli.
The student's response to a
click was recorded by an electro-
encephalograph, which measures
the brain waves of each subject,
One group of students did
nothing to the click. Another
group pressed a button to the
click; another oounted to the click,
Among these three groups
there was no apparent difference
between the left and right hemi-
spheres of the brain, reported
However, there was a differ-
ence between the two hemi-
spheres in Group IV, Cliett
The subjects in Group IV
responded to the click by free
association. They associated each
click with a word,clarified Cliett.
The left hemisphere of the
subjects in Group IV was more
active and quicker after this word
response than was the right
hemisphere, reported Cliett.
This response by the brain's
left hemisphere to a specific
stimuli may help others to better
understand how thinking differs
between normal people and dis-
turbed people, said Cliett.

After five years
ECU's $4.2 million Art Building complete
After five years of planning
and construction, except for a few
finishing touches, ECU's new
School of Art building is comple-
ted and now in use.
The $4.2 million building,
dominant feature of the ECU
campus landscape along Green-

was completion two years ago of a
65,000 square-foot wing housing

a total of 142,000 square feet of
space, includes a gallery, admin-

historic, landmark site-that of

The suggestion to name the

art and the ECU School of Art.

traveling shows. The gallery is to
be named for Dr. Wellington B.

Hanukkah - the festival of lights
Menorah essential to Jewish holiday
By JOHN DAY BERRY
Christmas will not be cele-
brated this month at the 400

and they are not short on goodwill
The Friedlanders are Jewish,

Hanukkah is an eight-day Jew
ish holiday which begins this year
on Thursday night, Dec. 16, and
lasts until Friday, Dec. 24. The
holiday may oome at another date
next year, since Jewish holidays
follow the lunar calendar.
The original story behind
Hanukkah is partially historical,
and partially mythological, ac-
cording to Carl Friedlander,
systems programmer for the ECU
In 72 A.D. Syrian forces
captured the city of Jerusalem,
occupying and desecrating a
Jewish temple. Judah Maccabee
and his followers recaptured the
city, and rededicated the temple.

Hebrew word meaning "dedi-

lamp which the Syrians had
extinguished. The lamp burned
olive oil, and Maccabee could
only find a small, one-day supply
of oil. Unfortunately, oliveoil took
eight days to be processed. A
miracle occurred, however, and
the lamp burned on its inade-
quate oil supply for the entire
The way Jews celebrate
Hanukkah mainly reflects the
miracle of the burning lamp
A special candlestick with
nine holders called a menorah is
the symbol of the holiday, accord-
ing to Friedlander.
"At sunset on the first night
of Hanukkah you light the first of
the nine candles said Fried-
lander. "It is called the Shamus,
meaning "The Guardian and it
is used to light the other candles.
On this first night only one other
candle is lit with the Shamus,

times cheese was the traditional
Hanukkah food, and it is still
considered as such in many

Assistant Trends Editor
The Christmas season has
long been associated with the
exchange of gifts and good cheer.
But Christmas also brings out an
occasional exchange of traditional
expressions or superstitions
concerning the season.
North Carolina abounds with
these holiday superstitions that
have passed on from generation
to generation. The ECU Folklore
Archive, in the Austin building,
contains collected folklore in-
cluding superstitions involving
the Christmas season.
According to Dr. Paul W.
Dowell, director of the Archive,
"most of the material from the
Archive comes from student
ooJ led ions
"I colled things as well as
other faculty members said
The most collected super-
stition ooncerning the Christmas
season in the Archive states that
"if you wash bed linens between
New Christmas (Dec. 25) and Old
Christmas (Jan. 6) you will have
There are many variants of
this lore, such as washing the
sheets will cause chills a even a
death in the family. This may
sound humorous to most, but it
holds true, even in 1976, that
people are superstitious.
Aooording to Dowell, "folk-
lore is constantly being renewed.
We never run out of folklore; we
are all bearers of fdklore trad-
Another prevalent super-
stition of the coming hdiday
season is that a green Christmas
means a full graveyard There
are many variants of this in N.C.
One of the students that filed this
bit of lore wrde that the friend
whom she received it from,
believed it. The friend said it
must be true since her family had
a warm Christmas and three of
her relatives had died recently
Myths about animals com-
prise a great deal of the hdiday
superstitions. It is believed that
"on Christmas Eve, farm animals

Because it has something to
do with removing the spirit of
Christmas from the inhabitants,
" it is considered bad luck to take
up ashes from the fireplace durin'

considered taboo right up until

An unusual superstition was
tdd by Jewel le Ward, 71, grand-
mother of the student who
odleded it. According to Ms.
Ward, "the first 12 days after
Christmas indicate what each
month in the ooming year will be

spread belief isthat a "Christmas

contemporary version hdds true

Four different playas have
led scaing in five games. The
difference in scaing averages is
11.4 to 6.2 among the eight
players. Seven of 12 playas have
started at least one game.
Senia Larry Hunt has been
the coisistoit man, scaing at a
dip of 11.4 points per game and
taking down 11.8 rebounds pa
game. The Shelby product has led
rebounding in four of five games.
The combination of balance
and na knowing how to quit has

Cary Godette selected
By STEVE WHEELER
Editor's note: A thlete-of-the-Month is a feature
of FOUNTAINHEAD. Members of FOUNTAIN-
HEAD'S sports staff and the Sports Information
Otfios vote from a list of nominees, with the top
vote-getter being winner. Cary Godette, a football
player, is November's winner and his name will be
on the list of nominees for Athlete-of-the-Year next
When Cary Godette signed a grant-in-aid with
East Carolina five years ago, nobody thought his
name would become the household name it is today.
Godette came from foaball-rich Havelook High
School to ECU in the fall of 1972 and became an
instant success fa the Pirates.
In 1973, his sophomore season, Godette
garnaed all-Southern Confaenoe acoolades while
playing with the "Wild Dogs" defense. He was one
of the leadas of a defense that gave a mae 230
yards total offense per game.
Godette missed the entire 1974 season due to a
knee injury and has had maja knee surgay twice
during his career.
Godette was again named all-Southan Confa-
enoe in 1975afta a year's layoff. He also headed up
the all-state team and was named honaable
mentioi all-Amaica. He led the Pirates' defense
which was tops in the Southan Confaenoe.
Godette decided afta the 1975 season he was
ready to quit football. He had one year left because
he missed the 1974 season.
Atta watching the spring game this year
Godette infamed Pat Dye he would repat fa fall
practice. Cary Godette was back and ECU fans were
Going into the season, one pro scout called
Godette the best defensive end in the country He
lived up to the billing.
Godette ended the season with ten quartaback
sacks in nine games (knee injury kept him out of two
games.) He had 16 tackles fa loss of yards taaling
96 minus yards. Godette also amassed 37 unassisted
tackles while assisting on 17 ahas.
During Novemba, Godette led the defense in
victaies over Richmond (20-10) and Appalachian
State (35-7), while playing admirably in the loss to
Fa his ef fats, Godette was named all-SC fa the
third time, all-state fa the seoond time, and
garnaed a spot oi third team all-Amaica in the
Associated Press balloting.
Harold Randolph, also of football, placed second
in the Novemba baliaing afta making all-Southan
Confaenoe and all-state fa the second time in a
row. He also was named honaable moitiot
all-America and was Chevrolet's defensive playa oi
the game in the regionally televised match-up with
Phil Muella, who placed third, won two
tournaments in wrestling during Novemba.

16 December 1976
D.C. writers impressed
What a diffaence a year makes. Last year when East Carolina's
basketball team invaded College Park, Md. fa its game with the
Terrapins they wae run off the court 127-84. This season, afta losing
five full-time a part-time startas, they played the 15th-ranked Taps
to an 80-69 ball game.
There are many reasons fa the turnaround, but the main one has to
be the attitude of the team entaing each game. This year's squad
seems to be up fa most evay game - detamined to play their best
despite the odds of winning. This team seems to be playing with mae
intensity than last year's ballolub.
Anaha big reasrjn fa the turnaround is scheduling. Last year,
ECU faced what was sure to be four straight losses at the beginning a
the season. They faced three ACC powasoi the road and played VMI,
an NCAA quarta-finalist in Lexingtoi.
This can take �ll the life out of a team. Fa the remainda of the
season, the team maely played up-and-down with each game.
Thisseason the team is still playing the same four opponents on the
road, but they are scattaed throughout the season, instead of at the
front. They play in the Duke-State Doubleheada during the holidays
and play the Keydets lata in the seasai at Lexingtoi.
AnOher intaesting quirk about the Maryland game was the
attitude of the D.C. press afta the game. They literally flocked to the
Pirate locker room following the oontest.
East Carolina was hit hard by the Washington area press afta last
year. Several playas, whose attitudes did nO ooifom with Coach
Dave Patton' son team play, wae told to shape upanot cane back out
this year. Two playas, Buzzy Braman and Reggie Lee, decided nrt to
oome back. Braman transfared to Maryland while Lee came back to
finish his grant-in-aid.
Braman went back to the Washington, D.C. area, his home, and
called up a writa fran THE WASHINGTON STAR, Eddie Crane, and
blasted Pattoi and the entire Pirate basketball program.
There wae several inequities in the stay such as Braman saying
ECUhada6-l9recadfatheyear instead of the actual 11-15. He also
said the school was in Greenville, S.C. instead of Greenville, N.C.
Otha aras included Braman saying he did na play in the game
following his selection as Southan Caifaaioe playa-a-the-week in
the 1974-75 seasai. In actuality, he played 38, 29 and 34 minutes,
respective, in the three games following his selection.
The writas afta the game at Maryland seemed to take the idea
that Patton was on trial in the D.C. area in the game. They asked this
writa sevaal questiois about the aedibility of ECU'S basketball
program. They wae impressed with the way the Pirates played without
Braman, Lee, and Wade Henkel, an ECU junia injured and sitting out
One D.C. writa, who sat in the stands during the game, said the
genaal feeling amoig Maryland fans was the Taps played their best
game and ECU was the most exciting team to play in Cole Field House
to date. Nare Dame, rated fourth in the nation, beat Maryland in
Most of the writas said they no longa doubted the East Carolina
basketball program afta the game and had been misled by Braman's
stay last spring. Their main praise of the team was based on the hustle
and attitude they showed.
They wae truly imaessed with the changes they saw in oie shot

currently ECU'S only undefeated
wrestler, holding a 13-0 record.
He has over 200 career wins.
Mueller began wrestling 13
years ago while in junior high

high school at Port Washington,
Wisconsin, also participating in
track, football and baseball. He

is a team co-captain. This is his
second year of wrestling at ECU.
Last year, Mueller was the
Southern Conference wrestling
champ, N.C. Collegiate champ,
and placed in the top ten in the
nation. He hopes to do as well, in
this, his final season.
Mueller sees this year's team
as being "young and somewhat
inexperienced, but we should be
ready by oonferenoe time.
"As an individual, I feel I'm
further ahead than I was last
