Susan Rogerson, newly appointee
Rogerson explained that the
publishing company fa the BUC
determined the book will not be
as expensive as expected.
"Our contract with the Hunter
Publishing Company does not
include all the fancy stuff, like
color, special effects, that make
the books so expensive
By lowering the publishing
oosts, Rogerson expects the new
BUC to be larger. She estimated
it will include at least 224 pages.
Exactly how many sub-
scriptions will be needed to
publish at all, Rogerson oould not
say. It will depend on the
advertising sales, she said.
"But I do hope we will sell at
least 3,000 subscriptions she
Rogerson served as assistant
BUC editor under Monika Suther-
land before the previous staff
resigned this fall.
"I Game back because I felt
that if we didn't have a BUC this
year of any kind, the tradition
might stop altogether
Sutherland's staff resigned
because they felt the appropri-
ated funds for the BUC were not
sufficient for a quality yearbook.
The money formally appropri-
ated fa the BUC has now been
appropriated to other functions.
So the new BUC staff is SGA
funded fa staff salaries and one
month's office operating ex-
penses only.
After these operating funds
run out, all office expenses will

SGA to hold forum
Assistant News Edita
Four SGA executives will appear Wednesday, Feb. 2, at 730
p.m. in Fleming Hall fa an open faum to answer questions from
interested students concerning SGA policies and actions.
The four executives include Tim Sullivan, SGA president, Karen
Harlo�, attaney general, Greg Pingston, vice-president, and Tim
McLec secretary of student affairs.
Jane Biddix, Fleming Hall legislata, is spaisaing the faum
mainly fa Fleming residents. But the student body is invited.
Biddix arranged the faum so the residents she represents may
obtain "first-hand answers" to questiois they have been asking
her, she said.
Most of the residents' questions ooncern the ECU yearbook,
BUCCANEER, and SGA appropriated funds in general, accading
to Biddix.
"I didn't have all the answers, so I thought the questions oould
be best waked out this way she said.
Although the faum was initiated fa the Fleming residents,
Biddix hopes mae of the student body will participate.
"I am publicizing this so that we will have a aowd, not just a
few she said.
Accading to Biddix, the SGA executives have said they will
attend the faum oily if a good sized aowd "mae than 20"
SGA President Tim Sullivan said he is very much in fava of the
infamal meeting, but voiced concern over student interest.
Accading to Sullivan, such meetings have been attempted in
the past, but with little student participation.
However, Biddix said she and the Fleming House Council
coadinata feel this type of infamal meeting to be one of the best
means in which students may obtain infamatioi about SGA actions
and policies.

After B-1, curb the atom
If the track record of the Greenville Peace
Committee runs true to form, President Carter will
announce sometime this month an end to the
controversial B-1 bomber project.
Organized in 1970 by Lou Paul, wife of celebrated
attorney Jerry Paul, the GPC from its inception urged
the pullout of American forces from Vietnam. There
were never any mass rallies in Greenville of
hundreds of persons calling for an end to the war, but
the oommittee persisted in its low-key opposition to
this tragic American mistake and eventually the war
did end-although several years and thousands of
lives too late.
After the war was over the oommittee called for
amnesty to be granted to those Americans who had
resisted the war. Again the committee's position
presaged popular opinion and Carter's pardoning of
the Vietnam-era draft evaders, one of his first official
acts in the office of president in fulfillment of a
campaign promise.
According to oommittee member Father Charles
Mulholland, the GPC has been a consistent opponent
to the "immorality of nuclear arms Now that at
least two of the primary objectives of the oommittee
have been realized, and a third, the fate of the B-1
bomber project seemsimminent,the committee can
now turn its prescient attention to another equally
pertinent issue, the insidious spread of nuclear
weapons and their associated technologies.
Carter has indicated his opposition to nuclear
armaments and will probably act to scale down the
U.S. arsenal of these weapons. But an effective
nonpro!iteration policy on nuclear arms must also
include the control of the technology associated with
the "peaceful" use of the atom.
One of the waste products of nuclear-powered
electrical generating plants is plutonium, an element
from which atomic bombs can be made. Unless there
are safeguards on this material when the industria-
lized countries sell nuclear plants to developing
countries, it is impossible to guarantee non-prolifera-
tion. And these sales are projected to increase yearly.
The GPC should use its foresight to demonstrate
to the citizens of Greenville and their representatives
in Washington, the dangers of uncontrolled trade
in nuclear technology.

The cause of the missed time

KAs rescue damsel in distress
The purpose of this letter is to
let the students here at ECU know
that there are still some really
nioe people left in this world.
What I am referring to is the day
of January 17, 1977 when my
friend named Herb and some
guys from the Kappa Alpha
Order, located on Charles and
11th, came to my rescue. The
story goes as follows:
My car was broke down
because of all the cold weather we
have been experiencing here in
Greenville. Jim, my friend, and I
tried to push my car with his car
to possibly start it. Some how or
another our bumpers became
locked together. We attempted to
un-do the damage but without
any luck. A friend of mine named
Herb came driving up and
stopped to assist us. After several
attempts of bouncing on the
bumpers, we gave up. Herb
decided that he would try to get
some assistance from the Kappa
Alpha Order which was down the
street. In a matter of minutes,
five or six guys came out to see
what they could do to help. One
guy did not even have a coat on
and I know it was about 20
degrees a so out there at the
time. After checking out ta
problem, Herb and the Kapn
Alpha Order guys picked up m
front end of my volkswagon and
presto- the bumpers unlocked.
They then set my car back down
and pushed it until I got it
running. During the whole or-
deal, these guys did not complain
about the coldness or anything.
Both Herb and the Kappa
Alpha Order were a real blessing
sent to me as far as I am
concerned. The words "thank

ECU professor remembers Pearl Harbor

If one were to ask Dr. Al A.
Fahrner of the ECU history
department just what he was
doing on the morning of Dec. 7,
1941, his reply would be, " I was
unaware in my underwear
Dr. Fahrner was an Ensign
assigned to the battleship USS
California, at the time of the
Japanese surprise attack on the
U.S. Naval Base at Pearl Harbor.
"I was asleep when it started,

morning so I could sleep-in
Fahrner wasn't really in his
underwear, but was wearing a
pair of short military pajamas

issued that when the real thing

said Fahrner.
Dr. Fahrner, a personable
man with a good sense of humor,
talked easily about that day.
But war is war and one is able
to detect a note of sorrow in
Fahrner's words.
"When you were close to
those people, it wasn't funny at
all Fahrner explained.
As far as the Japanese war
effort was concerned, the histor-
ian feels that the attack hurt them
more than it helped.

Farhner noted.

comical experiences

Lassoing cows, tracking down
bulls, rounding up hogs and
turkeys, and catching slithering
snakes provide quite a challenge
fa the Greenville Animal Control
The four-member team of the
City Animal Shelter on E. Second
Street has had some comic
experiences in the three years the
shelter has been open.
Audro Barrett, 33, has been
with Animal Control since April of
1974. One of his first unusual
cases was to catch a loose turkey
near Five Points in downtown

This past spring, two hogs
jumped out of a farmer's truck
while enroute to market. They
frolicked with their freedom and
evaded polioe and animal oontrol
officers behind Baroni'sat Fourth
and Reade Streets.
The hogs played a little too
hard to get and the owner
requested that they be shot.

roaming lost in Lake Ellswath

The bull had dented a car and

as 150 dogs a week when the

educating the public about the

only pick-up an average of 25
dogs a week.
"We try to educate the public

struggle to save hotel
The International Hotel in San

which neglects low-income peo-
ple. For nine years, elderly
tenants of the International Hotel
have been battling to save the
only fortress they know, and the
only home they can afford.
created a unique community in
which they feel comfortable, the
Four Seas Investment corpor-
ation, a company based in Hong
' ong and Thailand, has other
plans fa the International Hotel.
As owners of the hotel and
most of the block on which it
stands, Four Seas intends to
ly the Asian Community Center
and the Workers Committee,
which share the same building.
The judge, in the meantime,
ordered an immediate eviction,
though temporary stays protected
the tenants for awhile. Vowing
that "WE WON'T MOVEthe
tenants then began pressuring
Located in San Francisco's
Chinatown, the hotel is all that
remains of what used to be
Manilatown. Once encompassing
many blocks, Manilatown was a
striving "hangout" for Filipino
immigrants who came to San
Francisco. But things have
changed since the active days of
pre-World War II when Kearny
Street, where the hotel still
stands, was "the" place. Because
of big businesses and corpor-
ations, Manilatown has been
reduced to a single block.
And that single block is now
threatened by big business.
The 75 tenants, mostly elderly
Filipinos and Chinese, can barely
afford to pay the $45-a-month
rent on their low incomes. The
Kearny Street area is the only
part of town they are familiar
with; friends, cafes and stores are
within steps of their homes.
While the tenants have

making venture: a multi-story
shopping center. Across the
street from the International
Hotel stands a sign of a previous
defeat: the Holiday Inn, which
was built years ago in the heart of
Chinatown. Protests against its
construction did not prevent the
huge skyscraper from going up.
When Four Seas bought the.
International Hotel from Walter
Shorestein, one of the largest
realtors in California, in 1973, the
retired tenants refused to vacate
and began the long struggle
against eviction.
After the International Hotel
Tenants Association (IHTA).which
formed to organize against evict-
ion, lost their suit against Four
Seas last year, fresh, eviction
notices were again posted.
Numerous protests and demon-
strations were organized by the
IHTA and supporters, particular-
the new San Francisco mayor,
George Monsoone.
The city has the power of
eminent domain to buy the hotel
fromFour Seas and sell it to the
tenants. Although the Board of
Supervisors originally refused to
buy the building, after numerous
demonstrations by tenants and
supporters, the Board finally
voted to transfer funds to the San
Francisco Housing Authority to
purchase the building. The Hous-
ing Authority filed December 24
for immediate possession of the
building, stating its intention to
lease the hotel to the tenants fa
$1.3 million.
But the tenants argue that
poa people simply cannot affad
to buy such a hotel and insist that
the money be derived from

Books can be located by five
methods in the data base said
Mrs. Elizabeth H. Smith, cata-

title, the international standard
book number, and Library of

it's not that hard

program will have to be written
first to enable this, Smith said.

but future cataloging will include
audio-visual material, sound re-
cor' ngs, maps, manuscripts, and
serials, said Smith. The serials

part of the overall oost.

This is no typical store.
The atmosphere of Green-

"Happily Ever After" is on

Linda O'Connors, who both were
special education teachers until
about three months ago.
O'Conner is a young woman

Most of the toys are creative
and uncomplicated.
Paddle balls, marbles, octa-

few of the old-fashioned toys to be

a file fa new ideas. The children
often tell her about toys that they
have seen elsewhere and would
like to have.
According to O'Conner, her
background with children has
been a great help.
She previously specialized in
learning disabilities in the county
school system.
"Here, we're trying to reme-
diate with pleasure. So many toys
are available for this purpose

'A Star'is com
Presenting the greatest threat to diabetics since the invention of
French pastry, the film "A Star is Ban" opened in Greenville.
The only surprise in thisfilm isthat there are simply no surprises in
this film. It can be classified as the greatest American resource of
blatant symbolism, maudlin phrases and melodramatic conventions.
The only tragedy in thisfilm isthat a great star should stoop to doing a
mere star vehide and that a talented composer should be made to look
like a ctoss between Jim Marison and Dennis the Menace.
The songs, which are the only occasional strengths of the film,
parallel the emotional situations of the leads and explicate changes in
pld direction. It isoperettalike in that there is a great deal of musical
narration, and all adion ceases when Kristofferson a Streisand
The adion of the film oommenoes with the mental and physical
degeneration of John Norman Howard (Kris Kristofferson). On his
cocaine and alcohd engendered road-to-ruin, he meets Esther
Hoffman (I swear one day she'll play a gentile) (Barbra Streisand), who
is an undiscovered 25-ish singer of enamous talent. In no particular
ader, they then proceed to : fall in love, he stops drinking, they get
married, he goes on tour, she steals the show (unintentional), she
becomes great, he resents it, she still loveshim, he starts drinking, she
goes on tour, Lassie and this movie bdh die in the process and John, to
the tune of Esther's biggest hit, slams his Alfa Romeo into the side d
the road, dying that she might live and grow. If anyone is still left in
the theater at this time they see the gross finale of Esther doing a
medley of John's last songs written to her.
And I thought the Indians gave us can.
Joan Didion and Frank Pierson combine to aeate tne wast
saeenplay since "Abbd and Costello Meet the Godfather The
dialogue is pretentious and sentimental. They allow it to run rampant
with lines the likes of:
"hearing you sing is like hooking a big Marlin"
"if you ever die, I'll kill you"
"if you love me, I'll hate you"
Evocative theatre being obviously nd the intent of thisfilm, there is
still little in the lines that can be associated with true affedions and
judgments. The gaudy over-publicized love-stay is little mae than a
weak vessel fa Miss Streisand's voice and Mr. Kristofferson'ships (a
Miss Streisand is non-pareil as a dramatic singer but years on the

jagger-like motions are faced and too achestrated and she appears
fcolish. Without one of the most magnificent sets of pipes of this
generation, these flacid and melodramatic songs would have
collapsed of their own weight.
Kris Kristofferson simply cannd ad. In the early part of film,
where all he must do is stagger around drunk, depressed and stoned,
he is adequate. He has been a John Naman befae. He cannd,
however, find the necessary emdion in himself to play parts that face
him to move from his adual charader. That fs the essenoe of acting
and he simply lacks the spark. The songs he is made to perfam
subvert what is a genuine musical talent and it is no small surprise that

Bishop andDoheny show ingenuity,
'What's Wrong'has plenty wrong
Staff Writer
Looking like a youthful Bob
Dylan and sounding more like
Paul Simon than Paul himself,
Stephen Bishop has made his
debut into the recording field with
a pleasant and carefully made
album. CARELESS is comprised
of 11 original songs which touch
on a variety of pop music's styles,
but tends to oonoern itself mainly
with soft acoustic tunes made to
order for Bishop's creamy tenor
While shining on guitar and
vocals himself, Bishop is aided in
his efforts by such names as Eric
Clapton, Larry Cariton, Chaka
Khan and Art Garfunkel to name
a few. Each guest proves their
individual virtuosity as is best
exemplified by Chaka Khan's
vocals at the end of "Save It Fa
A Rainy Day" or Art Garfunkel's
soothing harmonies throughout,
where at times he and Bishop
team up to remind us of the old
Simon and Garfunkel sound with
a new twist.
While the arrangements are
all fitting and the caliber of
performance extremely high, the
album as a whole lacks a kind of
productive ap-
proaches greatness at times but
then again it leaves the listener to
bridge the gaps and fill the holes
with one's own instinctive imag-
ination. This is not such a tragic
flaw however, and there are
definitely enough positive attri-
butes to keep CARELESS on most
critics' good side. The best cuts
are the bouncy "Save It For A
Rainy Day" and the gentle title
cut "Careless While his name
is not well known, Stephen
Bishop is a first-rate singer-song-
writer, and CARELESS is an
album well worth listening to.
Andrew Gold's cover oxioept
PICTURE? is an extremely clever
one, asking the reader to find the
many oddities contained on the
cover photo, such as a floating

bun, anc an electric guitar

only a few. However the compli-
ments stop here, for once the
needle is put on the disc it is
evident that a more suitable title
would be WHAT'S WRONG
WITH THIS ALBUM?, tor there
are equally as many things wrong
with it as the oover photo.
Gold came to be known
through being the mainstay of
Linda Ronstadt's band, and with
Linda's growing popularity in the
past few years, so came more
recognition fa Gold. It got to the
point where Gold put out a solo
album in the fail of last year
simply entitled ANDREW GOLD.
The album was musically sound
and came off much like a
Ronstadt album with a male
singing lead vocals, for the
musicians and style were pract-
ically identical fa both. All in all,
except fa the pea lyrics, it was a
pretty fair first effort and left
good reason to believe that with a
little more solo recading exper-
ience and some diligent wak in
the lyrics department, his second
album might really be something
to anticipate.
With all of this grandeur
preceeding, it would be quite an
understatement then to call
WHAT'S WRONG a disappoint-
ment. The music while containing
a few bright spas, is basically
extremely baing and the lyrics
areharible, epitimized in Gold's
poetic lines, "I feel down, down
on the ground loosely taken for
a "Dick and Jane See Spot Run"
episode. Gold himself has a part
in the producing, arranging,
writing and playing. He has
previously proven that he is a
talented musician along with the
other people in his band, but good
musicians don't usually sound so
great unless they have good
music to play, and that is the
problem here. Gdd'ssongwriting
has simply regressed, and while
producer Peter Asher does his
best to salvage what he can, the
cards are heavily stacked against
him. The thing that seems so
incongruous is that there is some
first-rate mataial on this album,
which tells us that Gold is still
capable of writing good songs.
"Lonely Boy "Must Be Crazy"
and "Go Back Home Again" all
have qualities of brilliance, how-
ever three songs can't carry an
album. Through it all however,
Gdd's voioe does maintain a
steady bright spot on the album
and helps to compensate fa sane
of theaher weaknesses. Even so,
the album would have to be
considered a disappointment, but
maybe we were expecting too
The past few years has seen
pop music go through a type of
stylistic fusion mixing jazz, rock,
soul and folk and making it nearly
impossible to put a label on most

certain types of music have
gained more exposure and be-

Such is the case with HARD

to the overall effect. The most

are Doheny's smooth voioe and
the effortless way he presents his
songs. The production and song-

Welborn enjoys
winning ways
Assistant Sports Editor
A sign above the offioe door
reads, "Wrestling Spoken
This statement sums up the
drive and determination of the
man who occupies that room.
He is John Welborn, East
Carolina University's head wrest-
ling coach, assistant athletic
director, and chairman of the
Southern Conference Wrestling
Since coming to ECU in 1967,
Welborn, 38, had coached his
team to a phenomenal 86-10-3
"I can't come right out and
say that our success has foroed
some schools to re-evaluate their
wrestling programs Welborn
said. "It wouldn't be fair to say
that outright. I am proud of our
success and it does give you a
feeling of satisfaction to know
that teams make it a goal to beat
East Carolina
Evidence of ECU's -success
under Welborn is clear since the
Pirates have been able to upgrade
their schedule every year.
Already this season, ECU has
wrestled three of the nation's
traditionally better teams,
Lehigh, ranked fifth in the
� -
dual meet record. His teams
have won five straight Southern
Conference Championships and
have sent five teams to the
National Collegiate Athletic
Association Championships.
"Our wrestling program has
been a source of pride for
everyone involved with ECU ever
since John Welborn took over as
coach said Bill Cain, ECU'S
director of athletics.
"He is loyal to East Carolina
and he is a class individual
Welborn took over a program
that had little money to work with
and was far from successful.
Welborn still has the obstacle
of a limited budget, but ECU now
has one of the finest wrestling
programs in the South.
"The formula we use here is
really quite simple Welborn
" I just try to put the best team
together with the material we
have to work with and with the
money we have available. We try
to recruit a kid we think can
compete on the college level.
After that it's just simply a lot of
hard work

off. Since he became head coach,

ECU's budget does not enable
Welborn to recruit the nation's
top notch wrestlers.
Welborn recruits mainly in the
East, and concentrates his efforts
in the states of North Carolina,

Pirates beat Davidson,

Staff Writer
East Carolina played a near-
perfect second hald Saturday
night against Davidson and broke
a four-game losing streak with a
76-56 romp over the Wildcats in
Minges Coliseum befae 2,500
The Wildcats dominated the
Bucs in the first half, running out
to an 11 point lead early and
holding a five point advantage at
the half.
But in the second half, the
Pirates shot 60 peroent from the
floa and outrebounded the Wild-
cats 28-5 to roll up the big win.
"This is the first time this
season we've gotten total pro-
duction from everybody in-
volved said a happy Dave
Pattern after the game. "We
played like we have been playing
in the first half. But in the second
half we ga after 'em. That is the
first time this year things have
gone our way in the second half
The Pirates' defense was so
tough in the second half the
Wildcatsshot only 30 percent and
committed 11 turnovers. The
Bucs pressed all over the court
and Davidson could not break it
effectively. Davidson mentor
Dave Pritchett called that the key.
"Their press sure won the
game fa them. We could not
break it. And it hurt our rebound-
ing. We did not get an offensive
rebound in the second half
Patton too thought the de-
fense was the key saying, "We
have been living and dying by the
defense this year. So goes the
defense, so goes East Carolina
The Pirates started out very
slowly as the Wildcats ran out to a
17-6 lead. ECU came back to
make it 17-16 befae Davidsai

The scae stood 32-27 at the half.
With Davidson leading 36-31
early in the second half, the
Pirates ran off ten oonsecutive
points to take a 41-36 lead. The
Wildcats dosed the gap to one at
41-40 befae the Pirates ran off
six more unanswered points.
East Carolina gradually
lengthened the lead out to the
final margin of 20.
Davidson's John Gerdy, the
Southern Conference's leading
scaer, finished the game with 21

sub-par perfamances, led the

There were three turning
points in the match, in the 142,
158 and 177 pound weight
At 142, Tim Gaghan was
leading Tim Reaume by a 4-3
count when he injured his arm
with just 1.17 left in the match.
After an injury time out, Gaghan
told Weiban he wanted to keep
going. Reaume used Gaghan's
injury to reverse him to take a 5-4,
lead. Obviously in pain, Gaghan
managed to escape with just 17
seconds in the match to insure a
tie. Welborn said Gaghan
"snowed a lot of guts continuing
with the injured arm
Another big turning point
came when Steve Goode beat
Mike Benzei in the 158 pound
class. Benzei is a highly touted
wrestler who usually goes at 167,
but made weight at 158 fa this
match. Benzei had a 9-2 mark
coming into this match, but
Goode gave him a sound beating,
Jay Dever, the Pirates 177
pounder, has been known to get
up fa the big matches. But trying
to think of him beating an ACC
champion sounds a little far-
fetched. Dever, however, proved
everybody wrong again. Dever
and Dean Bria fought to no
scae in the first period. With
Bria ai top in the second period,
Dever quickly escaped and took
Bria down. This gave him three
points, enough fa victay. Bria
managed to escape in the second
and third periods, but Dever won
the match 3-2. Bria came in with
a 13-2 mark.
Paul Osman showed a lot of
determination in his match at 134.
Osman injured his ankle in
practice on Tuesday. Weiban
listed him a doubtful all week and
even on Friday was not sure his
star could move enough to win.
Osman was steadfast in that he

Powers plays with desire
Kyle Powers, former star for
Pine Forest High School, was a
determined young man when he
enrolled at ECU last fail. His
objective was to prove some
people wrong about his basketball
playing ability on the major
college level.
That determination, which has
resulted in hustle with reckless
abandon, has produced to a great
degree the results Powers had in
mind when basketball practice
opened for the Pirates on Oct. 15.
The timid, youthful faced
forward has started the last five
games for East Carolina, eight of
the 17 games played this year,
including the season's opener.
That is far more than most folks
had expected, according to
Powers, and perhaps more than
he himself had expected.
"Lots of folks back home
didn't think I oould oome up here
and play noted Powers. "Most
thought I should be at a smaller
school. In fact, some of the other
college coaches asked me when
recruiting me if I wanted to come
here and sit out for two years. I
guess I was a little brainwashed
myself with all that talk.
"I fully expected to play here,
but I figured it would be later in
the season when most of my
playing time came. Starting that
first game was a real surprise, but
one that I think I earned with my
preseason play. It s good to be
playing as much as I am, and I do
like the starting role. I think I play
better as a starter than as a man
off the bench
While statistics do not reflect
his true role in the East Carolina
attack, they are edging up
weekly. Through 17 games,
Powers is averaging 4.1 points
per game and 1.7 rebounds per
game. Maybe that's nothing to
brag about, but something that
could be far better if his shooting
touch would just return.
"I don't understand what's
happened to my shooting he
moaned. "I've looked at it on
film, I've practiced on itbut the
ban just is not going down for me.
Right now, I'm only shooting 35
percent from the floor and I'm a
far better shooter than that. In
high school offense was my game.
It was the defense I was worried
about here. But it seems every-
thing has been just the opposite
from what I expected
Despite his shooting being
less than expected, Pirate Coach
Dave Patton definitely is pleased
with the way Powers is playing
overall and the positive attitude
he has displayed from day one.
"Kyle is playing with more
maturity right now than at
anytime this year noted Patton.
"This maturity is the reason Kyle
is playing so well for us. I just
wish all of our players would start
with the maturity that Kyle is
While some may have
questioned his immense desire to
attend East Carolina, Kyle was
making an impression on Dave
Patton that strongly re-enforced
Patton's own feelings about his
signing Kyle.
" Kyle came into my off ice one
day before we had decided to give
him a grant-in-aid. He said that
whether he got the scholarship or
not, he was going to attend East
Carolina, that he would make the
team and that he would contri-
bute even as a starter.
"That's when I knew Kyle

desire to play for East Carolina

If one had to tab the outstand-

basketball court for ECU, it likely
would be the same thing Kyle
says is his biggest asset.

Powers very firmly. "It was
hustle that got me the starting
role in the opening game and it

Kyle came on and got after it in
preseason that earned him his
position. Through his hustle,

While the early season games
favored Powers, a slump set in.
The seventh game found Powers
on the bench all night. And that
was the last game before Christ-

to think and ponder what had

down explained Powers. "I

Pirates shellacked by
Old Dominion ,86-74
Staff Writer
Old Dominion picked up their
15th victory of the season against
just two losses Wednesday night
with an 86-74 win over East
Carolina in Minges Coliseum.
The Monarchs used a 19 point
surge to take the lead in the first
half of the regionally televised
game and never relinquished it
"We really played terrible
tonight said a dejected Pirate
coach Dave Patton following the
game. "We just cannot get
everybody playing together in any
one night. Tonight they were just
better than we thought
The Monarchs, in first place in
the East Coast Athletic Con-
ference, fell behind the Pirates by
ten points in the early going and
looked as if the Pirates might be
able to pull off the upset.
After Louis Crosby's jumper
from the corner put the Pirates on
top 16-6, freshman star Ronny
Valentine hit two quick baskets to
close the gap to six. Kyle Powers
then hit on a jumper and that was
all the scoring ECU oould manage
for five minutes. In those five
minutes, Ronny Valentine and
Wilson Washington hit on a
variety of shots until the Monarch
lead reached 11 at 29-18.
One of the factors in ODU's
success was Pirate center Larry
Hunt having to sit on the bench
with three fouls. The lead reached
14 points a oouple of times and
stood at 44-30 at the half.
The Pirates cut the lead down
to ten early in the second half at
58-48 before the Monarchs went
on a 23-7 tear to open up their
biggest lead at 81-55.
East Carolina outscored the
Monarchs 19-5 for the remainder
of the game mainly because of
Greg Cornelius. The sophomore
transfer continually drove to the
22 turnovers to just 13 for ODU.
The Monarchs picked off 54
rebounds to just 47 for the
Pirates. Washington led Old

picked up a couple of three point
Valentine ended up being the
game's leading scorer with 25
points while Washington added
18 for Old Dominion.
Cornelius led the Pirates with
21 points while Hunt added 14.
Freshman forward Kyle Powers
hit 14 to round out the double-
figure scorers for East Carolina.
Bad shooting hampered the
Pirates once again as they shot
only 36.4 percent to 45.7 for the
Monarchs. ECU also committed
Dominion with 14 while Valentine
grabbed ten. Hunt with 15 and
Cornelius with 13 led ECU.
The Monarchs, who earlier
won a tournament which included
undefeated Wake Forest and
Mississippi State, were the fourth
team in a row the Pirates faced
