Honor Council acquits
Sullivan of embezzlement
SGA President Tirrj Sullivan
was found not guilty of embezzl-
ing student funds by the Honor
Council Tuesday night.
The Council unanimously
acquitted Sullivan of the charge
stemming from a refund check
that he received after dropping
out of second session summer
school last year. SGA executive
council officials are required to
attend summer school with tuition
paid by student government.
Sullivan testified he dropped out
of school on July 22. .
The ECU cashier's office sent
a refund check for $26.98 to
Sullivan's home in Burlington,
N.C. in September, 1976. Public
Defender Charles Jennette point-
ed out that Sullivan's parents
handle his checking account and
Sullivan was not aware he had
received the refund.
Sullivan's father testified that

Greenville City Manager, Jim
Caldwell said that all of Hunt's
applicable directives were being
implemented by the city.
"It would be hard to close
down a city for a day but other
than that we are doing everything
we can Caldwell said.
The Greenville Area Chamber
of Commerce is meeting to
discuss the problem, said Jerry
Powell, vice president.
"It will be hard to oonvinoe a
merchant to limit his hours if the
merchant next door is operating
60 hours a week Powell said.
"But our purpose at the
chamber of commerce is to
coordinate business activities. It
would be our responsibility to
provide facilities and leadership
in helping solve this problem.

at Union Carbide.

talked with the employees and

Customers of the Greenville
Utilities Company (GUCO) will
not receive repayment for sur-
charges totaling $35 million which
must be paid back to utilities
customers aooording to a N.C.
Supreme Court ruling Tuesday.
The ruling concerned sur-
charges the utilities companies
billed to retail customers during
1975 when the N.C. General
Assembly ordered the Utilities
Commission to change the me-
thod that it used to determine the
amount of the surcharge. In a 4-3
decision the oourt ordered the
state's major utility companies,
including Virginia Electric and
Power Co. (VEPCO), to repay the
$35 million to retail customers.
As a wholesale customer of
VEPCO, GUCO pays a fuel
surcharge set by the Federal
Power Commission and is there-
fore not eligible for a refund,
according to Curtis Howelle busi-
ness manager for GUCO.

Chance for FM at WECU appears poor
By BILL HARRINGTON
According to Dr. Carlton
Benz, faculty advisor for WECU,
East Carolina University's closed-
circuit campus radio station, the
prospect of changing to FM is
poor at this time.
Benz said the primary pro-
blem is acquiring the funds for
such a conversion.
The money has to oome from
someplace said Benz. "You
just can't do it without money
Benz feels that the adminis-
tration does not oppose the
conversion, but concedes that
other things have been deemed

the FM station hasn't been made
top priority he added.
James L. Rees, director of
radio services, claims there are
two basic approaches to convert-
ing WECU to an FM station.
The first approach would call
for WECU, with its present
format of Top 40, disco, and
progressive rock, to change to a
low-power FM station capable of
reaching students not living on
Dr. Benz estimates that this
type of conversion would cost a
minimum of $10,000.
Benz emphasizes that the
$10,000 figure is a bare mini-
mum. He estimates a cost of
$30,000 to $40,000 to finance a
station the "students can be
The second and more expens-
ive approach calls for changing
WECU to an FM station of
approximately 20,000 watts.
This would enable WECU to
broadcast to an area including
Kinston, Rocky Mount, Wilson,
Washington, and New Bern.
If this plan were followed, the
station's programming would be
changed to include government
affairs, dramas, classical,
jazz.and folk music.
According to Rees, several
attempts in the past have been
made to get state funds to finance
this type of change.
"Costs have steadily risen,
until now it would oost around
$50,000 to $75,000 to get it on the
air said Rees.

Hunt urged to push
for 10th St. overpass
Governor James B. Hunt will
be urged to prod state highway
officials toward assigning a high-
er priority to a project to construct
a pedestrian overpass across
Tenth Street at College Hill Drive
here, enabling ECU students to
cross the four-lane thoroughfare
The present crossing connects
a heavily-populated student
dormitory area on College Hill
Drive with the main ECU campus,
classroom and laboratory areas
and is near such large campus
buildings as Brewster Building
and the A.J. Fletcher Music
It has been the scene of many
accidents, some of them severe,
in recent years and especially
since the widening of Tenth
Street and its designation as U.S.
264 business. An ECU student
seriously injured in an accident
there this past spring appeared
before the ECU board of trustees
Wednesday to plead that officials
"hurry up" and do something to
make the crossing safe.
Trustees unanimously appro-
ved a resduti xi to the governor
and the Department of Transpor-
tation requesting high priority for
the project. Trustee Eddie Green
assured the injured student,
Jenny Cox, that "we will pursue
every means" to eliminate the

Trustees protect degree
The Board of Trustees in its quarterly meeting in
January acted to retain the foreign language
requirement for the Bachelor of Arts degree and thus
to protect the beseiged integrity of the liberal arts
education. Student government, which sponsored the
aitempt to do away with this requirement, should
xase this self-defeating effort to gut the value from
the A.B. degree.
The study of foreign language has been declining
nationwide for the past several years. It seems after
every war that Americans tight, our society turns
inward; the Vietnam experience has perhaps
contributed to this waning interest.
'ECU has not escaped the symptom. The language
entrance requirement was removed and the general
education requirement of foreign language was
eliminated for all degrees but the Bachelor of Arts-
some departments, however have kept the requisite
study of a foreign language.
The latest assault on the requirement came from
the SGA Legislature last spring when it passed a
resolution to totally cut this required facet from the
Bachelor of Arts Degree. The SGA proposal was then
submitted to the Board of Trustees which directed it
to the Faculty Senate for consideration. The
University Curriculum Committee and the General
Education Committee jointly held two public
meetings after which the Curriculum Committee
reported favorably on a position paper submitted by
the foreign language department. The full Faculty
Senate also voted in favor of maintaining the foreign
The foreign language department's paper to the
Faculty Senate scored on several issues, and,
doubtlessly it convinced the Board of Trustees not to
decimate the liberal arts education at this university.
But SGA refuses to bury this mortified proposal.
President Tim Sullivan said Wednesday the issue
would probably be brought up again before the
trustees using different tactics.
It is time for those in SGA and this academic
community to confront the fact that as Americans we
are not living in a soundproof, climate-controlled
cubicle free from the world of nations. To stay strong
as a country we must be able to understand our
international neighbors. The study of various
languages and cultures is the vehicle for understand-
ing and an essential ingredient in a peaceful world.

'Dirty tricks'used in Sullivan case
I was the fellow appointed
to defend Tim Sullivan when one
of your reporters filed charges
against him. I never met Tim
Sullivan until Lwas appointed to
the case, and I didn't even vote
for him in the last election.
But one thing was certain
when I began compiling my file:
the role of the campus paper in
this is deeper than most people
know. The freshman reporter,
Robert Swaim, was put up to
filing those erroneous charges
against Sullivan by someone who
wanted to hurt him. The "proof"
of the unhealthy interest was
given when Jim Elliott, FOUN-
TAINHEAD editor, attended the
trial, probably to make sure his
star reporter gave a good perfor-
The trial never should have
gone on. It is my job to defend
students who oome before teh
Judiciary, and this "case" was
the most shallow I have ever
seen, had there been a real case,
the state auditor would have been
involved, and Sullivan would have
gone to a real court. FOUNTAIN-
HEAD knew there was no case,
but it also knew that under our
Honor Code any student can file
any charge against another stu-
dent, no matter how false The
paper saw the "mileage" it could
get by squeezing this case, and is
Trial was mockery, whitewash
I feel it is my duty as a
responsible and concerned stu-
dent to inform the student body
that the acquital of Mr. Tim
Sullivan of embezzlement charges
that I brought against him was a
gross miscarriage and mackery of
The whole trial was sham. The
Attorney General failed to stress
several key points: (1) Miss
Harloe never read the general
statute (G.S. 14-90) that covers
embezzlement. (2) She also failed
to point out (even after I brought
it to her attention) that Sullivan
had admitted to another student
that he knew that a refund check
had been made out to him and he
further stated that he had paid to
the Student Fund Accounting
Office the full amount of the
However, at the trial Sullivan
testified that he had no know-
ledge of the refund check until
January 17, 1977.
It is my firm belief that the
prosecution of this case was a
whitewash. Had there been a
special prosecutor appointed to
this case I feel sure that a
conviction would have been ob-
The physical evidence against
Sullivan consisted of a photostatic
copy of the cancelled check from
the cashiers office, a letter from
Mr. White, the ECU Business
Manager, stating that a refund
check in the amount of $26.98 was
issued to Tim Sullivan on or about
September 6, 1976, and a letter
from Mrs. Joyce Owens, of the
Student Fund Accounting Office,
stating that she had received no
money from Sullivan, (In addition

Chancellor's home holds unique past
By KIM JOHNSON
Assistant News Editor
One of Greenville's most prized
homes along its tree-shaded 5th
St. has a fascinating history and a
proud present and future.
The 11-room Italian style
home of the ECU chancellor and
his family was built in 1921 by a
local farmer, but was not oc-
cupied until 1937.
Haywood Dai I, a Pitt County
farmer, originally owned the six
lots at 605 E. 5th St. on which the
spacious home was built in 1921.
It was not completed, however,
until 1930 due to financial and
When Dail built the home, the
total cost of construction amount-
ed to$80,000, which would be the
equivalent of about $300,000
After Dail's financial failure,
the house was boarded up until
1933 when L. Ames Brown, a
White House correspondent,
bought the prized showplace for
However, Brown never lived in
the house; he had purchased it for
his mother. But Brown's mother
did not wish to move into such a
huge house, so it remained
unoccupied for another four
In 1937, Brown finally sold the
house to Hattie B. Young for
$22,000. It became known as the
"Young House" for the next 12
It was not until 1949 that the
East Carolina College (ECC)
Board of Trustees decided to
purchase the house as the home
for the ECC president.
The college paid only $30,000
for the house at that time.
Dr. John D. Messick was the
first ECC president to occupy the
then 28-year-old house.

Rape lecture proves
funny and informative
Mon. Tues. Wed
By ROBERT SWAIM
Last Wed. night over 1,200
ECU students gathered in Wright
Auditorium for a humorous and
informative program on rape
prevention by Rederick Storaska.
The program dispelled myths
about rape and provided a new
insight on the heretofore taboo
Storaska's lecture concen-
trated on what to do and what not
to do while the rape is actually
"They tell you what to do
before the rape and after the rape
but nobody tells you what to do
while the rapist is there said
According to Storaska, rape is
partially the result of society's
pressure on men to assume the
aggressive roll and peer pressure
on men to have sex.
"Men are taught to take and
women to give said Storaska.
Storaska stated 75 per cent of
all rape victims are assaulted by
someone they know. "This usual-
ly occurs in the dating situation
According to Storaska many
men are rape victims and quite
often these are very brutal rapes.
Women rape men because of
hate and you don't want to be
raped by a woman because they
often castrate their victims said
According to Storaska, a re-
cent federal survey reported that
87 percent of all reported rapes do
not involve violence.

The Second Annual REBEL
Art Show is presently being
displayed in Mendenhall Student
Center through Feb. 6.
The show represents under-
graduate and graduate students
work in the field of visual arts,
according to Robert Glover,
Awards totalling $325 will be
presented Friday, Feb. 6, with
first place receiving $100, second
place $75, and third place $50.
Glover said that four honor-
able mentions of $25 each will
also be awarded.
The judges for the show will
be Dr. Jim Smith of the Philo-
sophy department, Dr. Betty
Pettaway, Dr. Ed Reep, Dr. Bob
Rasch, Dr. Paul Hartley, all of the
art department and Tom Haines
who is owner of the Attic.
Patrons for the show are the
Attic, Art and Camera Shop,
Silkscreens Unlimited, and the
ECU Literary Art Magazine.
Daniel O'Shea, art editor of
the ECU literary-art magazine,
stated that the main reasons
behind the show are:
1) To insure that the magazine
has a great deal of student art to
choose from for publication in
the upcoming issue.
2) To give students an oppor-
tunity to show some of their works
that might have otherwise not
3) To present the REBEL as an
art form to the public at large.
According to O'Shea, the
show is a new idea in that it is the
first time that student art has
been shown to the public before
the judging took place.
O'Shea said that this is a
much more effective way for the
judges to judge the show than has
been done in the past.
Bill Bass, chairman of ILLU-
MINA (the art exhibition commit-
tee), was instrumental in acquir-
ing the extra space necessary to
present the entire collection
Bass stated that the show is a
"This show is one of the best
student shows ever hung in
Mendenhall said Bass.
"Not only is the quality very'
high but the quantity of work
represents a desire on the part of
the REBEL staff to allow all
interested student artists to have
their work represented in this
show he added.
Glover said that he believes
the show is a good example of the
quality of the creative student
that can be found on fhis campus.
"I'm proud of the art students
for responding to the show like
they have and being generally
interested in the outcome of our

Hammond acknowledged that

Would you believe
Baby, it's coldoutside
As most everyone knows, the winter of 1976-77 is proving to be one
of the most severe of the century for the United States. Arctic air
masses, Canadian blizzards, and the like have moved from their native
homes and settled here.
In the North and Midwest, snow and cold temperatures have
virtually paralyzed rural areas and great cities alike. As if the cold
alone weren't enough, many areas, including the industrial regions of
the South are struggling to stay warm (or at least alive), while coping
with shortages of natural gas and other vital fuels.
Meanwhile, here in Greenville, in the midst of the semi-tropical
North Carolina coastal plain, business goes on more or less as usual.
This is not to say that we haven't been subject to unusually low
temperatures. It has been so cold since Christ mas that many of us have
considered a Spring quarter transfer to the University of Tahiti
(unfortunately their admissions requirements are much stiffer than
good old EZU's).
Basically though, we have been spared the most serious
consequences of the cold winter. Most of us have heat, even if its
distribution is at the discretion of campus power magnates. There
haven't been any significant alterations in industrial operations in the
area (Pringles potato chips are still going strong). Some students have
no hot water, duetofrozen pipes, but the dorm dwellers can't complain
on that score (we never have adequate hot water anyway).
Yes, we have been pretty lucky, all in all. But the possibility exists
that someday, in the near or far future, Greenville, the sun and fun
capital of Pitt County, might not be so lucky.
When and if that cold day comes, how do we cope with shortages of
heat? How do we make it to dass on days so cold that the little drop of
Mountain dew at the corner of the mouth freezes instantly?
The first consideration fa ECU will be to find an alternative means
of heating the campus in an emergency situation. In the event that all
namal fuel supplies run out, the students could build huge bonfires in
the classrooms, using desks, podiums, class notes, books, etc.
Back in the dams, we could turn haplates, toaster ovens, ha pas,
hair dryers and any aher appliance we own on full blast (assuming, of
course, that we did have electricity). Even with a full power supply, it
would be necessary to assign people to man the fuse boxes, switching
them on and off as fuses blew.
Walking across campus would be a very serious problem. If some
type of gasoline were available, the wonderful SGA could possibly
purchase some of the trams that airpats use. We could catch one at
various spas ai campus, then jump off at our desired destination.
If, however, gasoline were a nonexistent entity, the administration
could possibly have underground tunnels built, so that pedestrians
would never have to come in contact with the elements at all. It
wouldn't be an impossible task, judging from the foxholes being dug
out now between Mendenhall and the library.
Despite our present lack of energy woes in Eastern Nath Carolina,
we are facing some of the same shatages which plague the rest of the
country. Take coffee, fa example. Now granted, there are a great
number of people fa whan this will be no great loss. There, are
nowever, quite a few of us on campus fa whan coffee is as integral to
our maning classes as the professas themselves. Na oily do we need
coffee in ader to function in themaning, many of us, who either can't
a won t use more paent stimulants, rely oonpletely on coffee fa
tnose late nights spent studying a writing papers.
Fa the slow maning risers, the obvious alternative to coffee,
would be mae sleep. Turning in an hour a so earlier does wonders fa
one's alertness, na to mention the advantages to poa, coffee-rated
The late night studying problem is harder to solve. Coca-Caa has a
fair amount of caffeine. A recent study indicated that 16oz. of the drink
provides as much of the stimulant as a cup of ooffee. Do you have any
idea now much Coke it would take to equal four good cups of java?
You'd spend your entire night in the bathroom.
I guess President Carta is right when he advises us to practice
conservation in all of the troubled areas. I'll gladly turn my heat down,
if tne university ever finds a means of regulating dam heat. I won't
drive too much, as I do na own a car. I'll even regulate my use of
electricity (except fa the elevata). Intact, I am so anxious to conserve
energy that I'm seriously considering staying in bed until 10 o'clock
each maning. He, maybe there's something to this energy

From David Jones to 'Man who
Bowie represents ten years of change
By MARK LOCK WOOD
If any one rock star represents
the metamorphic nature of the
past ten years in music, it is
Bowie began his music career
with his own group (under his
own name) called David Jones
and the Lower Third.
It was in the years 1967-1969
that he began his 'branching out
period and formed his own
mime troupe entitled the
Feathers Mime Troupe.
Bowie further exhibited a
heretofore unparalleled versati-
lity with a solo tour in early 1970
with Humble Pie. This tour was
followed by one of his many
retirements where he became
head of an Arts Lab in Becken-
Bowie continues in rock (de-
spite constant threats of retire-
ment). But another art form has
come into the forefront in the past
few years- that of movie star. His
portrayal of an alien being in THE
MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH
brought raves from the critics
amidst reservations from fans
that perhaps Bowie would now
leave rock forever.
Bowie, however, has pro-
duced still another album as a
follow-up to his commercially
successful STATION TO
STA TION album. As always, it is
full of surprises and is not your
oonventional Bowie album (if in
fact, conventionality does exist in
Fri. & Sat.
The new album, entitled LOW
is both vocals and instrumentals.
If Bowie ever came up without a
surprise, we would be surprised
Side one begins with "Speed
of Life which, strangely enough
is an instrumental number. To
say the least, it is "interesting
Carlos Alomar, who appeared on
the last Bowie album, provides
rhythm guitar background for
what proves to be a most
disturbing, but delightful synthe-
sizer hodge-podge. There is no
doubt that you will notice the
drums in this number, also. This
is definitely a far cry from
Bowie's earlier disco flavor.
"Breaking Glass" is a song
co-written by Bowie, Dennis
Davis, and George Murray, who
provide vocals, drums and bass
respectively. Eno, former Roxy
Music keyboardist, provides
some "other worldly" mini-moog
(reminiscent of his work with
Robert Fripp of King Crimson
fame). The offbeat rhythms of
Bowie's vocals are an addition to
For "What in the, World
Bowie is joined vocally by super-
punk Iggy Pop, and again, Eno,
who plays report arp. and rimmer
E.M.I, (whatever that is). This is
a more oonventional song (as
much as can be with Eno) about a
girl io stays in her room and
won't share her love. Bowie's
vocals pierce the "mist" with
great dexterity in this song.
Carlos Alomar's guitar leads
aren't too bad, either.
The beating drums again
introduce a song featuring Bowie
on synthetic strings, entitled
"Sound and Vision The song
has a kind of a mombo flavor to it,
again with some rather prominent
vocals by Bowie and something
he hasn't featured in a good while
- his sax playing.
"Always Crashing in the
Same Car" is a rather morbid
(why not?) synthesizer dominated
piece with a Lou Reed flavor to it
that can't be ignored. The lyrics
eliminates the double standard and

unpredictable environment for singles

aren't terribly intricate, which
immediately brings to mind
Reed's "Rock and Roll Heart
Despite the less than pleasant
subject, it is a palatable song.
"Be My Wife" picks things
right up with a driving number
featuring a more down-to-earth
guitar-bass-drums piece, again
with some unmistakable sax lying
somewhere within the back-
Eno again comes to the
forefront with some spacey syn-
thesizer in the intro, immediately
set off by some dynamic piano by
Roy Young. He comprises a
large part of the background with
harmonica, and a "tape sax
"Warszawa a Bowie-Eno
collaboration, again features Eno
on moog. The song begins in what
can only be expressed as a
graceful and moving prelude -
many orchestral characteristics
make this a most peaceful begin-
ning to what can only be termed a
most satisfying and rewarding
piece. Bowie enters into the
mystic with some vocals that fit
the part beautifully, exhibiting a
very prolific range.
"Art Deeade" is the following
piece, again featuring some syn-
thesizer-induced orchestral flavor
into the album. One finds a
smooth, graceful quality to the
song which makes it most pala e
able and enjoyable. O
There is no doubt to the
serene mood-setting intent of the
first half of side two. Bowie, with
the ample help of Eno, pulls it off
with the characteristic musician-
ship he has shown throughout his
The "Weeping Wall" is all
Bowie, and once again, predomi-
nantly instrumental in nature.
Bowie's guitar work, if not
particularly your everyday leads,
is most interesting, and his
xylophone background adds to
the whole feeling of what can only
be termed as a bizarre trip away
from reality. However, it works,
as many other such efforts have
failed by other prominent artists.
The song disturbs, yet intrigues.
The mellow ending of the
album is entitled "Subterran-
eans featuring an orchestral
side (again) and some excellent
arp by "Peter and Paul Bowie
again integrates his voice magni-
ficently to add to the mood. Bowie
also adds some good sax solos.
Bowie, thus, proves he can do
it, accomplish himself not neces-
sarily with the public in mind, but
for his own fulfillment and
integrity as an artist. Perhaps this
album will not turn gold because
of its other worldly flavor (as
Todd Rundgren found with his
JUITATION album), but he has
progressed further as an artist in
his new creation, entitled LOW.

top ten. That's a gross injustice to
some of the independent and
fraternity teams, perhaps, but it
is an indication as to how strong
the dormitory programs have
picked up in recent years.
The dormitories haven't just
picked up in basketball but in all
sports. A gread deal of the credit
has to go to the dorm advisors in
damson "the Hill
The most competitive dorms
this year have been Scott, Ayoock
and Jones. Belk Dormitory, too,
has been a top group because of
all the athletes in 'esidence there.
The administrators in Jones
(Jon Rogers), Scott (Jim West- "
moreland), and Aycock (Ron
Scronce) have really started the
ball rolling. They not only have
devoted special areas in the dorm
lobbies for intramurals, but they
have also served as, more or less,
Intramural Advisors in their
dorms by helping to get residents
involved in the program. More
than any other student group on
campus, the involvement of the
dormitory residents has grown
the most. Most of this increased
interest is due to the work of the
Dorm Advisors in getting their
Back to basketball for a
minute. Last week we missed two
record-breaking performances in
men's play. Lennie Blackley of Pi
Kappa Phi set an intramural
scoring record of 56 points in his
team's 94-16 win over Delta
Sigma Phi. The Figures Revised,
meanwhile, set a team scoring
record by scoring a 99-26 win over
In Your Eyes.
Blackley's performance vaul-
ted him to the top of the
intramural scoring race with a
30.0 average in seven games.
Right behind are Al McCrimmons
of the Rockets, Erwin Durden of
Patti's B-Balls, Earl Garner of
Belk Lo and Co Gerald Hall of
the Figures Revised and Stephen
Smith of Kappa Alpha Psi.
Two records were also set in
the women's league this past
week. The number one team,
BSU, raced to a 65-3 lead and, in
the process, missed the intramu-
ral scoring record fa a team by
one point. Kim Michael, BSU's
team captain, did set the wo-
men's individual single-game
scaing reoad with 25 points. The
old recad of 23 had been set
earlier this season by Marsha
Person. The team reoad of 66 is
held by the Nibs.
The BSU team has been rated
as the number one women'steam
all year. They go into next week's
playoffs the top-seeded squad
with a 6-0 "nark. Also in the
playoffs will be the Stardusters,
Tyler 400, Alpha Phi, Sigma
Sigma Sigma, Nock's Nockers,
the Day Students and Hyperten-
sion. BSU and the Sigmas are the
only two squads who went
through the regular-season un-
beaten. They won their individual
divisional titles, as did the Day
Students and Nock's Nockers.

not satisfied with play
Tyron Edwards got his
basketball career started early. In
fact, when he was in the seventh
grade in the junia high school
system of Chapel Hill, Ty was one
of the stars of a reaeation league
that won the state championship.
"That was pretty much fun
Edwards recalled. "That was the
first championship that any of us
had ever won, so it was a big deal.
A couple of guys from that team
are playing basketball now he
continued, "but most ended up
One of the biggest disappoint-
ments of Edwards' career in
uasketball was last season.
"I was all fired up he said,
"and ready to go at it. Then I
came down with pneumonia, and
that set me pretty far back. I
ended up losing dose to twenty-
five pounds. I still haven't gotten
all of them back yet
Being the tallest man on the
team at 6-11, there is some
pressure on Edwards to perfam
at his best. He does na really feel
the pressure, saying simply that
"I just want to do my best when I
go out there.
"I know that my height
aeates some tall adas fa me
especially in rebounding
Edwards explained, "but with
GreaCaneliusand Larry Hunt in
the middle to play with, t takes
some of the pressure off of me.
"The main thing I always
want to accomplish when I go out
on the court the Chapel Hill
native said, "is to always know
I did my best
Edwards says that he has na
been happy with his perfam-
anoes this year, because as he
stated, "I can do better. I'm na
playing to my best paential.
Hopefully, though headded, "I
One area where Tyron feels he
has improved himself is in
"I have definitely been re-
bounding better than last year
he said. "I'm beginning to feel
mae oomfatable in the middle,
now. As soon as I get a little mae
weight ai me, I'll be ready
Coach Dave Patton thinks that
Edwards has the paential, he just
has to use it.
"He has every tool in the
book said Patton. "He will be a
very good basketball player, the
moment he decides he wants to
be. He has to make up his mind
he wants to play
As fa after graduation Ty
says he would like to coach
possibly on the high school level.
One of his favaite pastimes,
currently, he says, is listening to
music, especially Stevie Wonder.

JUNIOR DON WHllAKtH, a transfer student, nas easily tit into
ECU s basketball program.
Greg Cornelius, former stand-
out player for New Albany High
School, was unstoppable in the
second half of ECU's game with
Old Dominion University last
Wednesday night. His per-
formance is a sign of what's been
happening to the lanky sopho-
more, but more a sign of what's
expected in the future.
"I feel I am progressing and
just ooming along notes the 6-9
forward. "As the season pro-
gresses, I feel I'm gaining more
confidence with more playing
time. All I want to do is play and
At times Cornelius has been
erratic. But overall, Cornelius has
been a much needed addition to a
very young Pirate team.
"Greg has shown his real
abilities at times this year said
Coach Dave Patton. "His second
half against Old Dominion was a
perfect example of what Greg is
capable of doing. He had 17
points in the second half, going
six of nine from the floor, five of
six from the line and pulled down
six rebounds. For the game, he
had 21 points and 12 rebounds.
"The thing about Greg
added Patton, "isthat he's like a
freshman and still very much in a
learning situation. He played very
little two years ago at Samford,
decided to transfer here, sat out
last year and is now trying to get
it going again. But he's coming
and is going to really help us in
the next two years
Cornelius, an awesome physi-
cal player that has at least one
TKO to his credit in the rebound-
ing wars, has started 11 of 17
games this year. His scoring
average and rebounding average
is slowly moving up. Currently,
Greg holds a 7.3 scoring mark and
a 6.9 rebounding mark. That
makes him the fourth leading
scorer and second leading re-
bounder on the Pirate team. His
rebounding average is tenth in
the Southern Conference.
The very intense young man
realizes his play has been spotty,
but believes he knows why.
"I just haven't been ver
consistent this year sa.J
Cornelius, "but it seems I lost my
timing and confidence when I sat
out last year. My freshman year
at Samford was a bad situation. I
didn't like it there. I was ready to
quit basketball completely, but
then I decided to transfer here
andl'mjustgladl did. Basketball
means more than anything else to
me right now and I'm very happy
at East Carolina
It's been a rather unusual
progression in the world of
basketball for Cornelius. Such a
progression leads one to believe
that the future holds tremendous
"I've been like a year or two
behind my whole career noted
Cornelius. "I didn't start playing
basketball until my junior year in
high school, after going from 6-0
to 6-5 in six months. I was 6-8 my
senior year, so I grew fast. My
freshman year at Samford, as I
said earlier, was not good. Then I
sat out last year. So I'm just now
getting back into the swing of
Cornelius is one of many
trying to get into the swing of
things. East Carolina has a team
composed of but one senior, two
juniors, four sophomores, and
four freshmen. It's been a
definite rebuilding year for the
Pirates, now 7-10.
But just as the future appears
brighter than ever for Pirate
basketball, so the future looks
brighter than ever for Greg
"I'm gonna be a boss next
year promised Cornelius.
"Weights and food this summer
and at least 230 next year; that's
what I'm working for
With that attitude, East
Carolina can expect more consist-
ent play in the future from Greg.
East Carolina can expect Greg to

Wrestler Paul Osman accepts
superstar label with modesty
By JEFF BROODS
The word superstar fits wrest-
ler Paul Osman like a glove.
Although he has many accom-
plishments to his credit, you
won't find him bragging and
over-whelming everyone with
words about how great his feats
Instead, you'll find a man who
cares about those around him and
is interested in them; a complete-
ly unselfish person.
From Virginia, he attended a
Catholic high school in McLean
until he was a sophomore.
Taking up wrestling in the
ninth grade, he won the Virginia
private school championship as a
rookie during his freshman year.
Two years after he transferred
to the public school system, he
again stepped into the limelight.
A senior, he finished runner-up in
the state public school champion-
Recruited by Coach John
Welborn, he turned dc.vn numer-
ous other offers to attend East
As a business major, he is
concentrating in marketing.
One of the prime reasons he
chose East Carolina was the
excellence of the business school.
But of course, another was
wrestling, and wrestle he did.
Proving he was no high school
flash in the pan, he placed 2nd in
the Maryland Invitational and
finished 3rd in the Southern
The sopnomore jinx refused to
haunt him as he finished at the
Neptune Invitational Tournament
and was selected "outstanding
His victim in the tournament
finals was the highly touted David
