faces difficult
(LNS)Jose Lopez Portillo,
Mexioo's new president, assumed
office December 1 in the midst of
the most difficult aises yet faced
by the capitalist wald's oldest
single-party state.
Snce Lopez Portillo's election
on July 4, two maja events have
raised serious doubts about the
ruling Institutional Revolutionary
Party's (PRI) ability to oontinue
its traditional vacillation between
populism and repression.
On September 1 the govern-
ment announced the first of a
two-step 100 devaluation of the
peso, anp then on November 19,
outgoing President Luis Echever-
ria expropriated nearly 250,000
acres of private farm land fa
distributiai to angry peasants.
The recent devaluation is the
first since 1954, and points to a
long-time pattern of Mexioo's
inaeasing dependenoe on the
United States market and invest-
Creditas say devaluation is a
step toward balancing the books.
In theay, it is supposed to reduce
imports by making them mae
expensive, and stimulate expats
by making them mae competitive
internationally. In practice, how-
ever, impats�the bulk of which
are necessary fa industry and
fcod consumptioi-cannot be sig-
nificantly reduced without serious
negative effects on the economy.
Coupled with recent wage
freezes, devaluation has led to
higher profits fa capaatiais.
Since it took effect, prices on
many basic consumer items have
nearly doubled while wage in-
aeases have been held dowr to
only 22, leading to inaeases in
oompanies' profit margins.
And there are indications that
wages will be held at this level. At
least since 1974 the Wald Bank
has been pressuring Mexico to
hold down wages, and the
Mexican press recently reported
that a new billion dollar loan from
the International Monetary Fund
was made dependent on wage
freezes and severe cutbacks in
government spending.
Shatly after the devaluation
a wave of land occupations by
mae than 35,000 angry peasants
rocked Mexico's northwestern
states of Sonaa and Sinaloa.
The land seizures were only
the latest incident of a conflict
that has been brewing fa de-
cades as Mexico's half-million
landless peasants have pressured
the government to break up land
holdings of Mexico's powerful
rural oligarchy.
In the past two years the
discontent has grown to aisis
propatiais as thousands of pea-
sants have occupied the rich farm
lands of Mexican growers. Many
of these growers are partners of
U.S. agribusiness oompanies.

Media censorship
Current action in the SGA Legislature to establish
a campus media board offers an ideal opportunity to
structure a committee which could prevent some of
the problems SGA and the publications have
experienced during this year and previous years.
This university had a publications board until last
year when the legislature decided to alter the board's
bylaws. The revision was subsequently vetoed by
SGA President Tim Sullivan who was not satisfied
with the proposed board. H is action came during the
latter part of Spring Quarter. The legislature did not
have a chance to offer any alternatives.
Rather than going back to the pub board as it
existed under the old bylaws, SGA allowed it to
become defunct in the fall. Thus, publications have
been drifting pitiously in the politically hot winds
since the BUCCANEER budget went to legislature in
Instead of spending precious time with their
staffs attempting to insure quality in the publication,
editors of campus media, BUCCANEER, EBONY
been involved in the political tug-of-war which befits
student government, but to which the media should
not be subjected. Pub board was created to act as
liaison between SGA and publications, to end direct
political contact.
Influence peddling is just about the most
unobjective business one can find. FOUNTAIN-
HEAD is a prime target. When News Editor J. Neil
Sessoms was interviewing key figures in student
government about the return of the Sigma Nu
fraternity to ECU and the involvement of some of its
brothers in campus politics, the Senior Editor of this
newspaper was offered a deal. President Sullivan,
who is a member of the fraternity, said, "If you call
off your dogs on this Sigma Nu stay, you' II get your
supplies The stay was published (see FOUNTAIN-
HEAD, Jan. 6, 1977) and the newspaper was faced
to return to the legislature so that it could buy ledger
sheets to keep a recad of advertising accounts. The
oost: $30 - out of a total budget of $57,000.
This harassment and censaship through govern-
ment controlled media can be easily ended via a
powerful, infamed media board.

Getting credit for iittie money
"For every credit, there is an equal and opposite
debit Too late. By the time that twist of Newtonian
logic appears as handwriting on the wall, the
unfortunate debtor often doesn't have a wall left for
it to appear on.
Don't mistake all those "careless with credit"
stories you've heard as tales of some new breed of
immoral deadbeat, however. The "easiest" credit
usually turns into the hardest debt, weighted by
usurious interest rates written in flyspeck print.
Constantly bombarded with ads about the all-new
"absolute necessities" for modern living, we've
been programmed to buy now and balanoe later.
Captivated by the spiel, much of the consumerism
oommunity itself devotes all its time to telling you
about the "best buy" without even a word about
whether you should buy at all. At last count
Americans were charging to the tune of $127 billion
a year that's about $600 of debt fa every man,
woman and child in the U.S.
Not that consumers don't have good models to
follow. Since 1933 the federal government has been
writing checks for money it doesn't have in the name
of deficit spending. And most banks, utility
companies and other corporations, while encoura-
ging you to pay on time, rarely follow that advice
with their own creditors. According to a survey run
by the Wall Street Journal, late payment of bills has
become commonplace in dealings between busines-
ses, because the longer a firm can hold off its
creditors, the longer it can use their money to
finance investments and other schemes.
There's no reason why consumers shouldn't
establish their own cash flow on what banks call the
"fast coming in, slow going out" prindple. In a
future column, I'll talk about bilUpayingand the new
federal credit billing procedures; for the next two
times we'll just concentrate on getting your foot in
the revolving door.
Students of credit. Students have either an easier
or a harder time getting credit than ordinary debtors
depending on where they go to school and what their
financial background (parents' bank account) looks
like. If you live in an area with at least one high
tuition private university, chances are that banks
and retailers will loosen up credit restricitons for all
area students in the somewhat distorted belief that
behind every student lies a wealthy parent.
Wholesale offerings of bank cards like Master
Charge and gasoline credit cards are not uncommon
in these areas.
If one of these offers oomes your way, you might
as well take advantage of it, even if you judiciously
p'ace the plastic in your top dresser drawer and
never use it while a student. Once you graduate,
you' II probably find credit a little harder to come by,
especially if you have to move around looking for a
job. Then, too, if you have as much trouble finding a
job as many grads have, you might as well have
some credit to take with you into the lean times.
Credit breeds credit. Finandal counselors have
proposed two related axioms concerning credit: (1)
Get credit when you need it least. (2) The quickest
way to get credit is to prove you don't need it. To
each in inverse proportion to their needs, you might
Short of that, financial consultants have
suggested various strategies to build a credit rating
without any real material wealth. In The Seven Laws
of Money, former banker Michael Phillips suggests
opening a checking account with the largest amount
possible even if you have to borrow a couple
thousand for one day (like several friends' tuition
checks) and return it the next. Many bankers, says
Phillips, record your opening balance on your
signature card and judge your credit worthiness by it
forevermore, even if that $5000 opener has no
relation to your usual $50 balanoe.
The way up the ladder of credit from there he
says, goes like this: You need a job (occupation:
student), one address, a phone and a checking
account for one year. Wait four months and then
apply for a gasoline credit card. Then apply for
credit at a luxury department store. These stores
usually give credit easily because what they lose on
bad debts they more than make up for on marked-up
prices. After six months, try for a national
department store charge like Sears or Wards. Use
that once or twice and pay promptly. Then after
seven to nine months go for a Bank Americard or
Master Charge.
Once your credit is established, you can move or
switch jobs as often as you like. Note also that if
you're offered one of the bank cards in a spedal
student deal, you've already reached "goal" and
can probably go back and get the rest. Even if you
never use the card, a "zero balanoe" from
non-usage looks the same to most lenders and is
just as good for your credit rating as a well-used,
paid-up acoount.
If Phillips' ladder seems too high, try the more
accelerated and devious method suggested by
Douglas Moore in How to Have Excellent Credit in
Thirty Days: (1) Open a $400 savings account at a
large local bank. (2) At the same bank, take out a
$400 loan secured by your savings account. (3)
Deposit the borrowed $400 in a second savings
account at a different bank. (4) Take out another
$400 loan at that bank. (5) Repeat the process at a
third bank. (6) Promptly pay installments on all
three loans. (7) Apply for all available credit cards.

of town meetings will be held in
Edenton, Bath, New Bern and
Belhaven. The meetings will
enable a Local Life Steering
Committee to further assess the
influences and dimensions of
localism in North Carolina.

Living together termed
fad; trend declining
About 30 percent of the U.S.
college population has lived with
a member of the opposite sex
outside of marriage. But, after
peaking between 1971 and 1975,
the cohabitation trend has re-
versed itself, according to Ohio
State U. Associate Professor of
Sociology Nancy K. Clatworthy
A survey of Clatworthy shows
that the reasons students live
together without marriage aren't
that different from the reasons
students marry. And the partner-
ships aren't that much different
from legal marriages except for
the negative aspects, such as the
pressure of parental disapproval.
"The vast majority of live-ins
feel their relationships are bene-
ficial says Clatworthy, "but
specific questions indicate they
really aren't as happy as they say
they are. Perhaps one reason is
that live-ins don't get from their
relationship what they think they
wili: security And that, she
says, may be the reason cohabit-
ation is becoming less popular.
According to Clatworthy,
many women 26 and older are
breaking off their "live-in" re-
lationships. She notes that most
married women of that age have
had their last child and she
speculates that older women are
beginning to get a bit panicky
about not having any children and
don't want to have them outside
of marriage.
"When live-ins break up it is
almost identical to divorce with
the same emotional problems.
The only difference I can see is
that they don't have legal fees
she said. Most "live-in" relation-
ships break up for the same
reasons marriages do: boredom,
incompatibility, personality and
sexual conflicts. However, there
are the added factors of a partial
commitment by one partner and
the lack of legal bonds.
Surprisingly, only 15 percent
of the partners in a "live-in"
arrangement see it as a prelude to
marriage and approximately the
same percentage actually do
marry their "live-in" partners.
She said that the marriages of
people who lived together before
marriage are less successful but
statistically this is hard to pin-
point. However, she said,
married couples who have never
lived together generally have a
more positive attitude and have
fewer arguments, fewer financial
disagreements, fewer sexual pro-
blems, and less outside pressure.

Would you believe
Let's refine women's lib
Trends Editor
In the past ten years or so, there has been a social issue (a social
phenomenon, really) which has affected and probably will influence
human society for years to come. That phenomenon is the women's
liberation movement.
Now many of you tend to assume that a female like yourself, with an
interest in media and careers, would be very much into the philosophy
of the feminist movement. You're right.
What I'm not necessarily interested in a in approval of is some of
the manners in which this movement has been manifested. When
Germaine Greer and Betty Friedan first came to public attention, they
were accompanied by "people' burning bras, "people" screaming
against the injustice of the titles "Miss" and "Mrs and "people"
labeling the great majority of males with the equally unjust title of
"male chauvinist pigs
All of this, plus open rebellion by feminists against any courtesy
performed by men for women, were perhaps necessary means of
bringing an issue to the public's attention. Well, the movement, while
not yet accepted universally is definitely known now by about most
Americans. So now, maybe we should refine it a little.
Take for example, the business of bra-burning. Now for some
people this is just fine. But for others it is important to remember that
this particular undergarment serves the purpose of "supporting one's
assets Men have a counterpart item that "supports their assets
and you don't see them setting fire to it.
Next comes the "Ms business. This is also fine, especially in the
South, where both "Mrs and "Miss" are pronounced as "Miz
There are, however, a few advantages to retaining "Miss Sure it's a
label, but there can be times when we'd like to make our lack of
husband perfectly clear.
Next comes the nice, chauvinistic little courtesies many males are
taught to perform for women. I myself am not very crazy with the idea
of someone constantly lighting cigarettes for me. Frankly, this habit
can be so inconvenient that it's worthless.
The same goes for having the man open the car door. I am perfectly
capable of opening my own door, and sometimes it beats the hell out of
sitting there waiting.
Now some things, I do like. Take for example the custom of a man
paying for a lady's meal when he invites her out to dinner. This can be
very constructive, serving the dual purpose of making the man feel
good, and making the lady feel she is being pampered. Forgive me,
Gloria Steinem, but I like people making a fuss over me.
Don't get me wrong. I am not advocating the practice of sponging
off of some poor, unassuming man. I think most of us would naturally
reciprocate in one way or another for the man's generosity. The point is
that the reciprocation ot kindnesses, be they material a emotional, is
one of the nicest facets of a relationship.
When you get down to brass tacks, there are two sexes in the
human race; there always will be, whether we like it or not. Each sex is
endowed by environment and heredity with certain characteristics, and
a great many of these characteristics are, literally and figuratively,
what makes the world go round.
Sure we women are the objects of certain prejudices and
stereotypes. But we're not the ones who need indoctrination now; it's
the men. Until the men become enlightened, we will be discriminated
against. It seems pretty obvious that the best way to change a man's
mind is not to intimidate, irritate, or just plain scare them. If we can't
be honest, competent, and confident, while at the same time living
with and up to our femininity, then we don't want to be liberated
women. We'd end up being poor imitations of men. And who would be
happy with that?

Placement Office
aids job hunters
Staff Writer
"College graduates will find
the job market very tight said
Dr. Funey James of the East
Carolina University Placement
The tight job market is due to
the sagging national economy.
When the economy is down, job
situations are down.
Dr. James related that on the
average 15 to 18 percent of recent
college graduates will report they
are unemployed. Last year, 18
percent of East Carolina's grad-
uates were unemployed. This
figure is somewhat lower now
because some students reported
they had found jobs.
Fa seniors entering the job
market, Dr. James has a few
suggestions. "Register with the
Placement Service; we can help
you. Also, follow up on job
bulletins in professional organi-
zations' newsletters. Visit per-
sonnel offices, apply to schools -
start looking for a job because no
employer will look for you he
Dr. James noted that a
successful job interview was
another important step in getting
a job. Dr. James suggested that
seniors keep in mind the follow-
ing pointers.
1. Know as much as possible
about your perspective employer
and job. Employers are impress-
ed when you take the time to
research their organization or
2. Know and accept as much
as you can about yourself.
3. Be neatly dressed and
4. Be yourself.
5. Have a positive attitude
during the job interview. If you
can convey this attitude to the
employer, you enhance your
chance of getting the job.
In summary, graduating
seniors should register with the
East Carolina Placement Office,
apply for jobs at several places
and present a positive attitude to
perspective employers. If these
suggestions are followed up, they
could be your first steps in getting
a new job.

Jazz man coming soon
World renowned jazz
trumpeteer Maynard Ferguson
and His Orchestra will appear in
concert at Wright Auditorium on
Tuesday, February 1, at 8 XX)
P.M. Ferguson, who can be
described as a legend in his own
time, will appear under the
auspices of Mendenhall Student
Ferguson, who first shot to
fame in 1950 with the controvers-
ial Stan Kenton Orchestra, was
born in Verdun, Quebec, Canada
on May 4, 1928. He began his
musical training at four and by
age nine was enrolled in the
French Conse.vatory of Music in
Montreal. It was during this
period that he finally settled on
the trumpet as his principal horn.
Ferguson formed his first band
when he was fifteen. In 1948, he
began working in the United
States with various big band
leaders: Bobby Raeburn, Jimmy
Dorsey, and most often re-
membered, Stan Kenton. In 1953,
he became first call trumpet man
for Paramount Picture in Holly-
wood and later moved to New
York to form his first American
Band. Throughout its years this
band spotlighted the nouveau
talents of some of today's legends
and stars.
Ferguson has released a
series of five albums entitled
M.F. HORN. The big band
superfunk of CHAMELEON top-
ped by the most recent surging
success of PRIMAL SCREAM are
material proof that when Fergu-
son oombines a contemporary
groove with the timeless appeal of
a roaring bass section, the results
are oontagious. His latest album
on Columbia Records has had
higher sale figures in five weeks
than any of his previous albums
achieved in a year.
As a part of his appearance at
ECU, Ferguson and his band
members will conduct an after-
noon clinic for the benefit of area
high school band students. Ad-
ditional information concerning
the clinic may be obtained from
Mr. George Boussard at the
School of Music.
Tickets for the evening con-
cert are available from the ECU
Central Ticket Office and are
priced at $1.00 fa ECU students,
$3.00 fa ECU faculty and staff
members, and $4.00 for the
public. Mail ader requests fa

Guru inspires IMarada
Staff Writer
Sri Chinmoy, leader of an
Indian religious cult which has
inspired such prominent rock
jazz artists as Carlos Santana and
John McLaughlin, now serves as
inspiration for another, newer,
less prominent, but very promis-
ing jazz artist by the name of
Narada(hisIndian name) Michael
Walden exhibits an Indian
flavor much in the style of
Mahavishnu John McLaughlin in
his new album entitled GARDEN
Although newer to the jazz
scene than many artists, Walden
has been featured in session
work. He was most recently
featured on the Jeff Beck WIRED
album, and is presently touring
with The Jan Hammer Group.
Throughout the album
Walden exhibits a certain knack
for choosing the right session
men. Relatively unknown Ray-
mond Gomez, Stanley Clarke Work
horse, and David Sancious are
featured prominently in the first
cut entitled "White Night This
number also features some en-
dearing symphonic undertones
with the more than ample con-
duction of Michael Gibbs.
Walden dedicates this powerful
number to the American Indian.
The next song, , entitled
Garden of Love Liaht features
some less than desirable vocals
by Walden. The song then breaks
int what can only be described as
a jazz version of " I Want to Take
You Higher" (very tasteless
The entire song sticks out like
a lump and is so incongruent with
the entire concept of the album to
the point of b'asphemy. The
female voices compound pro-
blems, and the entire piece is
saved only by the meticulous
guitar work of Gomez and the
excellent keyboards of Sancious.
"Delightful" is a welcome
respite from the previous un-
mentionable number. Female
voices are again used, but in this
case they are very tactfully done,
and the number oomes out as a
very mellow interlude. Gomez
again features an amazing dex-
terity on this song and Walden's
vocals are infinitely more desir-
The final song of the first side
features Devadip (Indian name)
Carlos Santana on guitar. Again
the Perfection Light Symphony
provides more than enchanting
background for some honey-
smooth licks by Santana. A very
pleasant way to "ease" out of
side one indeed.
The beginning of side two
features "Meditation a short
poem written by Sri Chinmoy as
read by Narada Michael Walden.
Michael Gibbs and the Perfection
Light Symphony again provide
mellow backgrounds to a fitting

introduction to the next song
entitled, "The Sun is Dancing
This is a number which
Walden dedicates "to my braher
Mahavishnu John McLaughlin
This piece features Walden pro-
minently as a true master of his
fate - the drums. The best
instrumental piece of the album
(and of anybody's album), "The
Sun is Dancing' also features
solid guitar by Raymond Gomez
with David Sancious handling the
keyboards with great style.
"You Got the Soul" is a
bluesy number featuring some
very tight guitar-playing by Icarus
Johnson, aocompanied by Will
Lee on some " funky" bass. David
Sancious again aooompanies ex-
cellently on the keyboards with
some "right-hand blues piano
Once again Walden provides
some refreshingly mae palatable
vocals in what amounts to a very
prominent song.
The following song, entitled
"The Saint and the Rascal" starts
off with some very familiar guitar
leads. A man by the name of Jeff
Beck (heard of him?) helps out
with his usual meticulous guitar.
Walden again excels on drums,
but Sancious takes away the show
(and your breath) with some
well-played synthesizer and
electric piano.
"You Are Love" is a very
fitting achestral ending to the
album. Walden's vocals (and
lyrics) are at the best. The song
definitely packs a punch as
perhaps the most emotionally
appealing song on the album.
Narada Michael Walden
leaves little doubt that he will be a
permanent and welcome member
of the ever-increading family of
musicians that make up jazz
music today.

Cain: Athletic
Program built
around students
Assistant Sports Editor
If a sharply dressed, intelli-
genHooking man is seen walking
around the East Carolina Univer-
sity campus searching for views
from students, it probably is
William E. Cain. ECU'S director
of athletics.
Cain, 42. is the third full-time
athletic director at ECU. He is
directly responsible fa all phases
of the althetic program and he has
just completed his first year on
the job.
It would be hard to find an
athletic director on any campus
who oonsiders the opinions of the
student body more important
than does Cain.
"An athletic program should
be built around the needs of the
students said Cain. "To often
they are overlooked. A conscious
effort has to be made to benefit
them because they are the
backbone of any school
Cain does not constantly sit in
his office in Minges Coliseum
isolating himself from the stu-
He attempts to visit the
campus at least twice a week
during his lunch break to confer
with students.
"It's relaxing to me to go to a
place like the library or the
student union to talk with stu-
dents about their feelings con-
cerning our program Cain said.
"When you listen to them, you
find out exactly what the needs
are. They know better than
For example, Cain was recently
ly called a "liar" in a letter to the
editor of the student publication.
A student had a problem obtain-
ing a refund for a ticket to the
re-scheduled Appalachian State
football game. She wrote the
letter to express her displeasure
with the athletic department.
Cain read the letter and
immediately contacted the stu-
dent. She received a refund
despite the fact that she no longer
had the ticket.
"I just wish she had seen me
about it first said Cain. "That's
what I'm here fa. We discussed
the situation and I understood her
One of Cain's first acts when
he became athletic directa was
to visit a meeting of the Student
Government Association to
answer questions.
"Without doubt this was one
of the most fulfilling experiences I
have had since I've been at East
Carolina noted Cain. "The
questions I fielded from them
were among the most pertinent I
have heard. I have encouraged all
our coaches to attend some of
these meetings. The students
have a good understanding of
what our program needs
Another aspect of Bill Cain
that suits him fa the job is that he
has an appreciation fa all spats.
He has coached both maja and
mina spats at ECU.
Cain was a football coach at
ECU in 1968 and 1969. Since
then, he hasalsoooached golf and
'Those experiences have
given me an insight to the overall
program said Cain. "What I
would really like to do is have the
opportunity to coach women
athletes since they have become
so prominent in recent years
The athletic program at ECU
has unlimited potential. With Bill
Cain overlooking the taal oper-
ation, it is easy to see why the
program should experience con-
tinued growth.

Cagers overcome'Cats,
gain first road victory
Sports Edita
East Carolina used a big rally
in the first half Tuesday night to
overtake Davidson and held off
the Wildcats' second half surge to
register a 51-49 oonfetenoe vic-
tay in a road game.
The victay gave the Pirates a
1-2 mark in the league and left
them with a 6-6 overall slate. The
Wildcats fell to 0-3 in the
Southern and 2-13 overall.
"I think the key to our victay
was defense and poise towards
the end of the game Head
Coach Dave Pattern said following
the game. "We finally got our
share of breaks. We also im-
proved on our free throw shooting
(68.8 percent)
The Wildcats jumped out toan
early 15-6 lead befae Pattai
called a time out. The talk during
the time out did the job as the
Pirates scaed the next 12 points
to take a three-point lead. Fresh-
man Herb Gray led the charge
with six points including a siam
dunk on a fast break.
The lead stayed from two to
four points until the Pirates
scaed the last six points of the
half on medium range jumpers by
Gray, Don Whitaker, and Jim
Ramsey. This left the halftime
oount at 32-22.
Gray led the Pirates in that
first half with five of six field
goals fa ten big points. Ramsey,
anaher freshman, added eight.
Coach Dave Prichard's Wild-
cats came out in the second half
and whittled away at the lead until
they took a 41-40 lead with eight
minutes left. The lead changed
hands six times during the last
eight minutes of the oontest.
Davidson led 49-48 with 50
seconds left when Pat Hickert
fouled Greg Cornelius in the act
of shooting. Cornelius missed
both free tosses but center Larry
Hunt picked off the rebound and
laid the ball in to give the Pirates
a 50-49 lead.
The Pirates kept the ball fa
the last 27 seconds after Hickert
missed on a one-and-one chance.
The Wildcats fouled in despera-
tion but the Pirates kept getting
the ball back out-of-bounds be-
cause they were not in the bonus.
East Carolina finally got into
the bonus with six seoonds left as
Ernie Reigel fouled Hunt. The
senia fran Shelby oonverted on
the first toss to give the Pirates
their margin of victay.
Gray finished the game with
14 points to lead the Pirates'
attack. Ramsey had a bad shoot-
ing second half, going zero fa
six, and finished the game with
eight points along with Cornelius
and Whitaker. Hunt's ten re-
bounds led everybody.
Reigel led the Wildcats with
13 points while Rod Owens added

Pattai threw praise ai Cros-
by, Hunt and Cornelius.
"Louis (Crosby) really did a
job on Gerdy. His defense is
fantastic. He held Richmond's
leading scaer (Kevin Eastman)
to four and Gerdy to ten.
"And the Old Reliable (Larry
Hunt) pulled rebounds all night
and scaed our last three points
Patton added.
"I thought Greg Cornelius
also played well down the

Transition is tough for Ramsey
Jim Ramsey has somewhat of
a problem in his basketball
playing this year. He is a
freshman, and is having to make
the transition from high school to
college basketball. This is always
tough, said Ramsey describing
what he considers the toughest
part of it.
"The hardest part is trying to
relax he said. "Most of the
basics are taught in pre-season,
so you learn it all fairly quickly,
but he continued, "it's hard to
get out on the court the first few
times and remember it all. You
get a little tight and you forget
what you've been taught Ram-
sey blames the poor shooting on
Raleigh-Wake County Metro
Player of the Year. He says it has
been a little different in the
beginning at East Carolina.
"In high school, I was the
main scoring fador on the team
explained the 6-3 freshman.
"This year, I have started some,
but I have also oome off the
bench, which is new.
"That hasn't been too hard,
though he oontinued. "The
coaches have shown us that the
team conoept is the best, and as
Coach Patton says, it's not
important who starts the game,
but who finishes it.
"The most difficult part of it,
though, is coming in off the bench
and fitting right in to the flow of
the game without much warmup
ECU is very fortunate to have
Jim Ramsey on the basketball
squad. At this time last year, he
appeared headed for VR.
"I had almost dedded to go
there said Ramsey, "but then
the head coach resigned, and the
assistants went, too, so all the
guys who had recruited me were
"They tried to get me to go
where they went, but I didn't
want to. The ECU coaches then
contaded me and I was im-
pressed with them. They seemed
like they were interested in me off
the court as well as on. If I had a
problem I could go to them with
it. They were really sincere
Last month, Ramsey got an
opportunity to play before the
home folks, when East Carolina
partidpated in the Duke-N.C.
State Holiday double-header in
Ramsey has found that trying
to play basketball and do college
work at the same time is getting
increasingly difficult.
"First quarter, it wasn't too
hard he said, because we were
not playing, and the freshmen
were in study halls. Now that
we're into the season, it's getting
hard to concentrate on basketball
and schoolwork at the same
time Don't fear, though, the
ECU guard said he had a 3.0 first
What does the all-State, all-
Metro Player of the Year want to
accomplish this season?
" I just want to be able to look
back on this season and know I
made a contribution to the team. I
feel like I helped against Western
(10 for 10 from the foul line in the
dosing minutes) and I hope I have
helped in other games as well. I
have a positive attitude for this
season, and that's what you have
to have to be a winner
the youth on the team.
"We're young, and a little
tight he said, "and this shows
up in our shooting. It doesn't
show up as much in our defense,
because there is not a great deal
of form assodated with defense
Ramsey is a native of Cary,
N.C. where he was named to the
Greensboro Daily News all-State
team, and was named the
Greg Cornelius oomes to East
Cardina from Samford University
in Birmingham, Alabama. He
transferred here last year, but
had to sit out a year of basketball
because of eligibility require-
This year, Cornelius is a
valuable addition to the middle of
the Pirate lineup. Along with
Larry Hunt, he provides valuable
rebounding assistance.
"That is one of my main
jobs said the 9 center. "I like
to go after the ball on the boards.
"I'm a fairly physical player
he continued, "and I'm not afraid
to mix it up under the boards.
That is what I'm here for

in his relatively short basketball
career. He was not a three or four
year star in high school. In fad,
he started playing organized
basketball in his junior year.

Lady Pirates lose
East Carolina's Lady Pirates
dropped their fifth straight game
of the season when they traveled
to Chapel Hill. The Tar Heels of
North Carolina beat the Lady
Pirates 81-64.
The Lady Pirates were playing
without star forward Rosie
Thompson in the game. Thomp-
son will be out of action for a few
weeks with a strained fracture in
her leg.
The Tar Heels took a 40-27
lead at the half and never were
threatened by the Lady Pirates.
Debbie Freeman led the Pirates
with 20 points and eight re-
bounds. Gail Kerbaugh added 13
points while Kathy Suggs, taking
Thompson's place, hit for ten
points and pulled eight missed
The Tar Heels were paced by
Joan Leggett and Cathey Daniels
with 16 points each. Cathy
Shoemaker added 14.
As in past games, the Lady
Pirates' downfall proved to be
miscues. East Carolina had 18
turnovers to just nine for the Tar
Heels. Carolina also out-shot the
Lady Pirates 46.4 to 42 percent
from the field.
The Lady Pirates will travel to
Harrisonburg, Va. Friday for
three games. They will face
Illinois State Friday night and
play West Chester State and
Madison on Saturday. They will
return to Minges Coliseum for a
game with UNC-Greensboro on
