SGA alters test
return proposal
Staff Writer
The SGA legislature passed an amendment to a resolution calling
for professors to return tests in a specified period, during the regular
Monday night meeting Feb. 7.
The resolution for the Faculty-Senate, passed two weeks ago, asks
professors to return tests within ten days in five hour courses and six
days in three hour courses.
The amendment asks that major tests be returned before another
major test is given.
"Students are getting teed off by not getting tests back said
Philip Barbee, sponsor of the resolution. "It will let them know,
because some teachers are apathetic
The legislature passed the resolution and amendment unani-
In other business the Greenville City Council will consider an
ordinance banning charity solicitations on the streets, later this month,
according to Tim Sullivan, SGA president.
He plans to contact the Interfraternity Council (IFC) and other fund
raising groups on campus to get their reaction before the ordinance
comes before the city council.
Sullivan suggested that legislators print up newsletters to keep
students aware of SGA activities, such as the BUCCANEER and
The legislature appropriated $300 to the Student Dietetic
Association (SDA) for a trip to Atlanta, Ga. The SDA was able to raise
the rest of the $2,000 needed fa the trip.
The trip will allow students to look for jobs, according to Legislator
Craig Hales.
SGA Vice President Greg Pingston urged students to apply for the
Spring elections chairperson post.
"Anyone who wishes to apply must do so by 5 p.m Thursday
said Pingston. "The job pays $75 and screenings will be on Friday.

Budget tops $300,000
News Editor
The East Carolina Student
Government Association (SGA)
collects, controls, and disperses
over $300,000 per year, one of the
top three student government
budgets in the United States.
This sum comes from $80,000
per quarter in student fees and
from revenue of the FOUNTAIN-
Play House, according to Tommy
Thomason, SGA Treasurer.
"The other sources of revenue
are minimal compared to the
$80,000 per quarter from student
fees said Thomason.
Every Fall, Winter, and
Spring quarter, $8.50 of each
student's fees is delegated to the
SGA, said Thomason. The
amount drops to $3.20 for each
Summer session. The figures
were reached by the board of
Combined with the nearly
$150,000 Student Union budget,
ECU probably maintains the
largest student controlled budget
in the nation, according to
Student Government uses the
money to provide a free transit
system, a student loan program,
refrigerator rentals, student pub-
lications, and other student ser-
"How the money is spent is
entirely up to the students said
"The SGA here is one of the
most active I have ever seen. In
most schools, the administration
handles the refrigerator rentals,
transit system, and things like
To gain access to student
funds, each organization or ser-
vice must submit a budget to the
SGA legislature, Thomason ex-
plained. The budgets then go to
the appropriations committee and
occasionally on to other commit-
tees such as the judiciary.
The proposed budgets are
voted on by the legislature as a
whole after committee considera-
tion and recommendation.
If passed, the SGA president
has ten days to veto the budget
before it becomes effective. Tho-
mason said the president cannot
make line-item vetoes,but must
sign or reject the entire proposal.
After an organization obtains
its budget, it must submit requisi-
tions to be approved by the
treasurer before any funds can be
To pay a telephone bill, for
example, an organization must
submit a requisition for the
amount to be signed by Treasurer
Thomason. The expense must be
included in the budget.
"It's usually a 24-hour pro-
cess said Thomason.
According to Thomason, the
Student Fund Accounting office
keeps the books, handles the
funds, and writes the checks.

DCE gets fishing grant
Staff Writer
A recent $120,938 National Oceanic and Aeronau-
tic Administration (NOAA) grant will double the
budget of the ECU Division of Continuing Education
program for commercial fishermen, said Jim McGee,
As part of the education and advisory services of
the U.S. Department of Commerce Sea Grant
program, the ECU program provides education and
training in seafood harvesting and handling techni-
ques and in the processing of seafood products.
Sea Grant is a combination state and federal
venture designed to promote the wise use and
development of the nation's coasts and oceans
through research, extension, and education.
The NOAA provides two-thirds of the program
The N.C. Department of Administration, through
its Office of Marine Affairs, provides matching dollars
on a one-to-two basis.
The ECU Continuing Education program operates
primarily through advisory agents trained to provide
fishermen with information and technical assistance,
McGee said.
Marine Advisory Agents are similar to Agricul-
tural Extension Agents in their functions, said
"They work in the local area to assist in
identifying needs and developing extension activities
and programs directed towards meeting these
needs McGee said.
These agents might not know the answer to a
question, but they are equipped to find an answer
These same specialists also serve as a link
between coastal citizens and the universities.
As citizens turn to Sea Grant advisors with specific
environmental and economic needs, these needs in
turn can become the subject of research on university
For example, data collected on offshore water
circulation patterns in one Sea Grant study will help
local and state officials make decisions about the
wisdom of disposing sewage in the sea off North
Other activities have included development of eel
farming techniques and the support of commercial
clam and oyster cultures.
Researchers are also studying disease control,
diet, feeding, pond construction, and young eel
capture for an eel farming project near New Bern.
"Growing eels is not popular, but it is very
valuable said McGee. "There is a big market with
high prices
In addition, because wild oysters are diminishing
from pollution, it might be economically feasible to
commercially culture oysters and clams, McGee said.
"Instead of going out in boats to haul in wild dams
and oysters, why not grow them yourself in shallow
sound waters where you can simply walk out and
harvest them said McGee.
Also, NOAA will support research projects in
biology, chemistry, and geology, all of which relate to
the environment of the North Carolina coast.
The largest other grant, $41,486, was awarded for
a study of shoreline erosion and accretion to be
conducted by Dr. Vincent J. Bellisof the ECU biology
faculty and Drs. Michael O'Connor and Stanley Riggs
of the geology department.

about the SGA.

and Tim McCleod SGA secretary

In explaining the workings of
the SGA, Sullivan said that

"The SGA budget allows
flexibility for students. It allows
us to give more or less money to

noting that transit was an excep-
tion fa which the SGA must
spend a set amount of money on
each year.
The question of an SGA-
funded newsletta to report the
facts of SGA news was raised by
one student who said that he

Sullivan noted that the charge
of embezzlement recently made

"I feel they wanted to make

Tim McCleod, said that he would

In otha SGA business, Sulli-
van said that a larga amount of
money was set aside fa trips
outside of the regular bus sche-
dules since money set aside fa
transit in previous years was not
used fa that purpose.
"With a budget of some
$300,000, yours is one of the

Charge, verdict both just
The Honor Council decision one week ago today
that acquitted SGA President Tim Sullivan of
embezzlement was a just verdict. The charge on
which the case was brought to litigation was both
credible and properly submitted to authorities.
Certain student government officers, including
the SGA President, are required to attend summer
school, the tuition and miscellaneous fees for which
being paid from SGA funds. When freshman Robert
Swaim learned that after dropping out of summer
school last year, Sullivan had received a refund of
$26.98 from the cashier's office and that Sullivan had
returned no money to the SGA General Fund, he had
four alternatives: 1) Inform Sullivan that he (Swaim)
was aware of this irregularity and then quietly let the
issue die. This route would have left Swaim open to
the charge of aiding a cover-up. 2) Avoid the Honor
Council and .opt instead to have the issue decided
publically. This method would have required
FOUNTAINHEAD to publish the evidence and leave
it toSullivan to fend for himself in the political arena.
3) Swear out a warrant for Sullivan's arrest
(embezzlement is a felonious offense). 4) Present the
evidence to SGA Attorney General Karen Harloe,
letting her decide that the case was justiciable under
the embezzlement charge. This is the option that
Swaim chose.
Both Harloe and Dean of Men James Mai lory
were oonvinced that the evidence against Sullivan
was substantial enough to bring the case to Honor
Council. Both advised Swaim to do so. During the
preceding Harloe told the council members that
Swaim had followed proper university procedure in
filing the complaint against the SGA President. As a
reporter for FOUNTAINHEAD, Swaim was removed
from any coverage of student government for the
duration of the case.
After a short deliberation last Tuesday the Honor
Council found Sullivan not guilty. Testimony
revealed to the council members that Sullivan's
parents received the check from the cashier's office
and deposited it in their son's account without his
knowledge. Sullivan's only crime was not knowing
the refund had been sent. He deposited $26.98 in
the SGA fund shortly after hearing of Swaim's
The SGA President should now stand completely
exonerated of the embezzlement charge relating to
this refund. Furthermore, &vaim should be praised
for his effort to protect student fees, however meager
the sum.

SGA 'Prez'gives own version of case
I know it must have been a
typographical error, but when the
FOUNTAINHEAD ran its article
on the Honor Council hearing
concerning Robert M. Swaim and
myself, no mention was made
that Mr. Swaim is a F-Head
reporter. No mention was made
that any student can bring almost
any charge against anybody on
this campus, no matter how
Also, the letter I wrote about
the "case" which you so objec-
tively titled "Sullivan Sees Con-
spiracy" is inaccurate. Just be-
cause Swaim is on Jim Elliott's
payroll and works under news
editor Neil Sessoms, who is
"covering" the case, and just
because Jim Elliott took time out
of his schedule to attend the trial,
and just because Swaim is still
covering SGA doesn't mean there
is a conspiracy. Does it?
Mr. Swaim was taken to task
last week about his written
accusation that Jones Cafeteria
served "left-over grits" as lunch
entrees. I can assure you that the
crow Jim Elliott and his employee
Mr. Swaim are eating now
because of this "trial" tastes
even worse than those grits.
Even those people who have
disagreed with the way I've done
my job this year are getting
disgusted with the bias and
hypocrisy and duplicity that the
paper new shows. FOUNTAIN-
HEAD has lest any shred of
objectivity it might have had
when it put one of its own
reporters up to filing charges, and
then pretended to "cover" the

which was passed by the SGA
Legislature on Monday, January
24, 1977, there will be an Open
Forum on Wednesday, February
9, at 730 p.m. in Mendenhall 221
with the Transit Manager, Gary
Miller, and the bus drivers. All
students are urged to attend this
Open Forum to air grievances,
give suggestions and ask ques-
tions about specific routes, ser-
vice times and any other ques-
tions regarding the SGA bus
The Transit Improvement Act
also asked for suggestion boxes
to be put on each bus. These
locked boxes will be on the busses
soon, so that students who utilize
the transit system can offer
suggestions and give complaints
about the bus service. The bus
drivers will be asked to wear
name tags so that complaints, as
well as compliments, can be put
in the boxes to enable the Transit
Manager to identify a specific
problem or time period problem.

ECU professor teaches
computer to write welt
Staff Writer
Dr. James Wright, assistant
professor of English at ECU, has
taught a computer to write in a
way some students should be
envious of.
A project he started last
spring has resulted in a correctly
written piece by the campus
The computer writes prose,
poetry, headlines, classified ads,
and more, under Wright's di-
Dr. Wright's experimental
project tests English grammar by
analyzing real sentences.
The program breaks down
sentences into grammatical pat-
terns and then tests the accuracy
of the pattern by random substi-
tution of the programmed vocab-
ulary, according to Dr. Wright.
Wright tells the computer
precisely what to do and when the
pattern is laid out, the machine
writes a new piece of work based
on the prescribed patterns.
One advantage for Wright is
that the computer learns fast
and makes no errors, unlike
After feeding a well-written
piece of literature into the com-
puter, Dr. Wright's program
allows the machine to randomly
pick new words and write a new
poem or story.
The result is amazing and
challenges Wright into trying to
see how many new versions he'll
get. Each time, a totally new story
or poem will result.
He purposely uses humorous
words when working with sen-
tence structures.
"I could easily use dog, cat,
and other words, but that's

boring said Wright smiling.
The stories, poems, and car
advertisements are not only fun,
but also intricate and interesting.
Yet, Dr. Wright admits that the
purpose is serious.
The overall purpose of the
project is to take what has already
been done in conventional gram-
mar and carry it one step further,
according to Wright.
Wright's research involves
areas that computer scientists
interested in language have
woTKed on for some time.
When Dr. Wright first began
the project, he had no knowledge
of programming.
Carl Friedlander, a consultant
for user services in the ECU
Computing Center, aided Dr.
Wright in writing the program.
However, there's more than
just setting up the program. And
Dr. Wright has experienced some
difficulties in the project.
"But through trial and error, I
learned he said.
Friedlander views the project
as interesting and unique.
"It's unusual, for me. Dr.
Wright is competing with com-
puter scientists in the field of
linguistics Friedlander stated.
Dr. Wright's knowledge of
language and his initiative are
what may have led to the success
of the project, according to
In the early 60s, Dr. Wright
received an invitation for a Peace
Corps project that took him to
South America.
After receiving 96 hours of
lingusitics training in El Paso,
Texas, prior to the South Ameri-
can experience, his interest in
linguistics soarked.
"At the time it was just
that this was what I wanted to
do he stated happily.
"Fa the first time, I saw a
computer do language
Up until last spring, Wright
had always wanted to do research
in linguistics, but none of the
machines he encountered could
handle the language that was
needed for this kind of research.
"I found out accidentally
through one of my students that
ECU'S computer uses Snobol
language he said.
The program is intricately tied
in with the courses he teaches. In
one of the classes he teaches, Dr.
Wright said his students analyze
languages from all over the world
and his project is an enormous
"He's really humorous and
his classes are really interest-
ing commented one of Dr.
Wright's students.
But despite the light and
humorous personality, he is an
extremely serious and ambitious
lover of language.
Wright's project is not com-
pleted, however. Exploring deep-
er into language patterns, he
intends to work with conjunctions
in a later phase.
An accomplished musician,
Dr. Wright is also doing some
research in musical compositions.
"If anything comes out right,
it's totally accidental he laugh-
ed referring to his music research
Although not a creative writ-
er, he considered the computer to
be a good tool for creative writing.

CIA admits illegally
opening U.S. mail
(LNS)-From 1953 to 1973 the
CIA admits to having illegally
opened, read and copied 215,000
first-dass letters that were mailed
by or addressed to American
citizens or residents. If you have
reason to believe that secret
operation HTLINGUAL opened
your mail you'll be interested in a
series of American Civil Liberties
Union (ACLU) damage suits now
in the works.
The ACLU aims to win money
damages for the tens of thou-
sands of persons involved, secure
an injunction to stop any further
mail openings, and to force the
CIA and the FBI (to whom
thousands of the opened letters
were transferred) to empty their
files on HTLINGUAL.
Two lawsuits are aimed at
high-ranking CIA officers re-
sponsible for the mail-opening
program. Seven more are direct-
ed against the United States
itself�novel in civil liberties
terms, says the ACLU, but if
successful it will produce more
damage money since the U.S.
Treasury has more in it than the
individual bank accounts of form-
er government officers.
The civil liberties organization
is hoping that all lawsuits can be
brought as class actions, but if
that is denied, they will want to
have the participation of as many
named individuals as possible. In
order to participate, you must
know fa a fact that the CIA has
opened your mail. The CIA will
supposedly give you that inform-
ation if you write to the FOIA
Coordinatory, CIA, Washington,
D.C. 20505 with a short letter
demanding to know "under the
authority of the Freedom of
Information Act" whether your
mail has been opened. Past
experience has shown, says the
ACLU, that if the Agency has
opened your mail, it will tell you
so and also send you copies of
your letters.
The next step is to submit a
daim for damages to the CIA and
that's where the ACLU can help
you. Their legal department has
produced a small packet of
materials and forms which will
explain all the steps. For that
packet, send a stamped, self-
addressed envelope to Legal

How real is the present natural gas crisis ?
(LNS)-ln mid-January, as ap-
parent shortages of natural gas
kept millions of people shivering
from cold temperatures in their
homes, and out of school and
jobs, a mysterious classified ad
appeared in the Wall Street
Journal: "15 million MCF of

genuine natural gas shortage? As
with the oil and gasoline "energy
crisis" a few years back, an
independent evaluation of the
quantity of available natural gas
by observers outside the energy
corporations is difficult. Esti-
mates of reserves are compiled
only by an industry trade group,
the American Gas Association.
To begin to untangle the
origins of this latest "crisis
critics say it is important to note
that we no longer have separate
oil, coal, uranium or natural gas
industries, but an energy industry
controlled by former oil giants.
Exxon, Texaco, Phillips, Gulf and
Mobil are the largest natural gas
producers in the United States, in
that order.
These producers have contin-
ually claimed, since Federal price
regulation of interstate gas sales
began in 1954, that the result
would be natural gas shortages
caused by an artificially low price
of gas set by government regula-
"In fact, there has never been
one (a shortage) wrote James
Ridgeway in his book The Last
Play: The Struggle to Monopolize
the World's Energy Resources.
"Their daims coincide with each
decision by the courts or the
Federal Power Commission limit-
ing their prices
According to energy company
researcher and critic Joe Stork,
"the evidence suggests that the
only thing 'artificial' about
natural gas prioes is that they are
based on costs of production and
do not contain the spread of
monopoly profits in the 'compet-
ing' fuels controlled by the oil
In other words, energy cor-
porations want the price of
natural gas - which is compara-
tively cheap to produce - to rise
to the price of an equivalent
amount of oil, which is several
times more expensive.
As fa the immediate causes
of this winter's problems, James
Flug, director of Energy Action, a
Washington, D.Cbased group,
points to a number of circum-
"For the past few years
explains Flug, "the natural gas
producers have expected that all
price lids on natural gas would be
lifted. Therefore, just on a pure
arithmetic basis, it was in their
economic interests to keep gas in
he ground as long as possible,
ntit the price lids were lifted
As a result of this winter's
severe cold weather, subsequent
high fuel consumption, and short-
ages, the Federal Power Com-
mission (FPC) began allowing
some emergency purchases of gas
from intrastate pipelines by inter-
state suppliers at the higher local
rates. (If gas is produced and sold
in the same state, it's considered
intrastate; if it is produced in one
state, but sold in others, it is
The top Federal ceiling for
interstate gas is $1.42 per thou-
sand cubic feet at the well head,
considerably less than the intra-
state price, which goes up to
$2.25 per thousand cubic feet.
Consequently, Flug,explains,
gas producers have pulled back
gas from the interstate market,
trying to sell their, gas to
intermediary distributors on the
local market at the higher prices.
Then, as a result of emergency
measures by the Federal Power
Commission this winter, these
'distributorsare permitted to sell
the gas across the country at the
higher, unregulated price. Costs
increases are passed on to
consumers' bills.
Energy corporations say the
solution to the problem is to
deregulate natural gas and allow
interstate prioes to float along
with the price of intrastate gas.
Critics say the solution is to
regulate the interstate as well as
intrastate prioes. They estimate
that deregulation of gas would
lead to an increase in fuel bills
totalling to $20 billion a year.
The Carter administration in-
troduced a bill in Congress on
January 26 which could be the
first step towards aiding the
energy oompanies with the even-
tual deregulation of gas prioes.
Under current law the Federal
Power Commission can grant
interstate distributors permission
for 60-day emergency purchases
of gas from suppliers at unregu-
lated prices; Carter proposes
extending the allowable time
period to 150 days. An earlier
FPC practice of permitting 180-
day emergency sales was over-
turned in court as amounting to
Just prior to the Carter bill the
Wall Street Journal was reporting
that, "Shut-offs of natural gas

'Carrie' provides viewers
with first-class terror
Staff Writer
"Carrie" is the most sophisti-

commercial circuit in several
years, not to be discussed along-
side Friedkin's vulgarly pretent-
ious "Exorcist" or Donnen's
trashy "Omen Brian De
Palma's latest effort is a triumph
of technique and style over
substance, a tour de force of Mood
which promises to rocket the
director to the high position in
filmdom he has long deserved.

Carrie White is an introverted
high school senior who ranks as
scapegoat among her vicious
peers. When Carrie encounters
her first menstrual experience in
the gym shower she becomes
agitated and hysterical, fearing
death. Her classmates respond
with the excesses of adolescent
cruelty, berating Carrie with a
flood of napkins, and tampons,
and heartless chanting. The gym
teacher (Betsy Buckley) reacts in
this rich key scene by consoling
Carrie and sentencing her class-
mates to gym detention. The
compassionate teacher sends
Carrie home to her religiously ob-
sessed, borderline psychotic
mother (Piper Laurie) to recuper-
ate. The gruff toned mother
browbeats Carrie with a Bible and

upcoming Senior Prom. Tommy is
reluctant but finally yields to

to render another "very impor-
tant favor to bludgeon a pig and
spill its blood on Carrie during
her highest moment of Prom
Night bliss. Everyone gets so
involved in their schemes to help
and hurt Carrie that none takes
notice of her telekinetic powers,
oblivious that it is the shy,
tortured, princess-to-be who
causes ash trays to fly from tables
and light bulbs to explode.
Crazy Mother refuses Carrie
permission to attend the prom
with Tommy so Carrie demon-
strates her wild powers. The

At a time in life when many
people begin to doubt their own

at Manhattan Aviation High

such that it would be hard for
many people not to wonder
whether-when it was all over-a

40's as a beginning engineer.
The first critical decision was
whether to enter college. He
approached it methodically.
Before Fisher began his four
years of full-time studies, he took
night courses in calculus to see if
he oould handle the depth of
studies required. He did well and
was accepted for admission to

Shakespeare set to music
8 February FOUNTAINHEAD Page 11
'Falstaff entertains opera fans
Staff Writer
Sir John Falstaff, one of the
world's leading comic heroes,
klutzed his way with finesse over
the ECU stage last week. Wed-
nesday through Saturday, the
portly knight was star of the ECU
School of Music's Opera Theater
production of "Falstaff" at
Fletcher Recital Hall.
Sir John is the popular
character of Shakespeare's "The
Merry Wives of Windsor" and
Henry IV In his version for
opera, Giuseppe Verdi creates a
tightly constructed but sparkling
comedy about Sir John's mercen-
ary attempts at the conquest of
two rich wives. One might say the
appealing degenerate is asking
for trouble.
The scheme requires a com-
plicated plot full of deceptions
and counter deceptions. Un-
fortunately, Jespite the English
translation, during Act I of the
opening night performance the
audience was so busy trying to
figure out the plot details that it
forgot that "Falstaff" was sup-
posed to be funny.
The cast was so earnestly
establishing characters and set-
ting the scene for later develop-
ments that they missed the
lighthearted mischief Verdi in-
tended for his opera. Even a
potentially delightful antiphonal
chorus of chatter between the
men and the women was swal-
lowed up by the pianos and
merely confused the audience.
Alan Jones as Falstaff led the
cast in poised singing and heavy-
handed acting that left the
audience impressed but cold.
With the Act II entrance of
Susie Pair as the busybody
Mistress Quickly, however, the
audience started to relax and
enjoy her teasing revenge on Sir
John, whose schemes had been
discovered unbeknownst to him.
Mature perfamanoes by Lynn
Hicks and Claire Hurley as the
two "merry wives" further re-
laxed the audience. Their rich
soprano voices stabilized the
whole production.
Act II was also livened up by a
fun, if unsuccessful, seduction
scene between Lynn Hicks and a
warmed up Alan Jones, who left
the scene hidden in a pile of dirty
laundry that was dumped into the
Thames River. Act II was worth
seeing if just for the gaudy
red-flowered-upholstery material
blouse, lacy knickers and orange-
feathered hat that the wine-
loving, women-chasing Sir John
wore to entice the ladies. Even
the bit parts started to dick, like
Cindy Barfield in a silent role as a
cute but witless servant.
In a delightful subplot, Nancy
Thomas (Nannetta) and Steve
Walence (Fenton) played two
young lovers determined to marry
against Nanetta's father's
wishes. Nancy Thomas' light high
soprano and experienced acting,
with Steve Walence's beautiful
tenor, were a nice contrast to the
quick-paced humor of the main
What really won over the
audience was Bill White's per-
formance of the red-nosed ruffian
Bardolph, a crony of Falstaff. Bill
White was full of it, and the
audience including myself, loved
By Act III, the opera's fun
aspect really came together. A
midnight masquerade in the
woods punished Falstaff for being
naughty by scaring him with a
fake fairy attack. Here Nancy
Thomas was her most remark-
able, floating an effortless high,
high "Bb" into the moonlight,
holding the pure tone "faever"
as the fairies danced.
In this final scene, the block-
ing started to make some sense,
with motion flowing in the dim
lights to give the proper ethereal

Freeman and Kerbaugh
lead Lady Pirates in
two weekend games
Staff Writer
ECU'S Lady Pirates hosted
nationally ranked N.C. State
Thursday night fa a predictable
match, losing to the Pack 95-68.
The difference in height alone
between the two teams made the
going rough for ECU, especially
against a team that works so well
together as State does.
Six of State's 14 players ended
up in double figures, with only
one player not scoring at all.
Debbie Freeman led the Pi-
rate' s scoring with 24 points from
the floor, along with Linda
McLellan and Gail Kerbaugh,
who had ten each.
All five of ECU'S starters
played over thirty minutes, while
the longest any member from the
Pack bench played was 20 min-
Overall, the Lady Pirates
played a good game, but certainly
not what they are capable of.
State played less than perfect not
being forced to fight fa the ball.
Coming off their loss to State,
the Lady Pirates beat Longwood
College Friday night by a scae
of 89-80.
Three Pirates made it to
double figures.
Guard Gail Kerbaugh hit 29
points. Debbie Freeman scaed
26, and led in rebounding with 14.
The other high scaer was Linda
McLellan with 13.
Scaing was close fa the first
half, with ECU edging the lead
38-37. Rebounding was fairly
close throughout the game, ECU
led with 53 over Longwood's 48.
Having the lead coming in to
the last minutes of the game was
a nice change fa the Pirates, as
they could concentrate on playing
good ball instead of attempting

Ike Mimsgot the Catamounts
off to a good start by scaing 12 of
their first 14 points. This gave
Western a ten-point lead, a lead
the Pirates could never overcome.
The Pirates were beset by oold
shooting all night long. They
could not buy a basket from
outside. They had to rely on
getting the ball inside to Gray fa
their points a by getting offen-
sive rebounds.
Rebounds did not come the
Pirates' wayasthey had earlier in
the season. The Catamounts
outrebounded the Bucs by a
whopping 48-35 margin. Mims
led WCU with 12 while Larry
Hunt topped ECU with nine. Of
late, Hunt had been a terra ai

retrieves per game.
After the Cats opened up their
14-4 lead early in the game, the
Pirates came back to cut the
margin to four at 16-12. After the
teams traded a couple of baskets
each, the Catamounts went on
another tear to put the halftime
lead up to eight at 33-25.
Western Carolina scaed the
first three points of the seoond
half to open up an 11-point lead.
The Pirates then cut the margin to
seven at 42-35. But, the Cats
scaed the next eight points to
open up a 15-point lead at 50-35.
Western's biggest lead came

50's f reestyler McCauley
aims for the nationals
8 February FOUNTAINHEAD Page 13
Staff Writer
Speaking confidently and
quietly, John McCauley, a 220
lb six-foot seven inch member of
ECU'S men's swim team, says he
is aiming for the top of the
swimming nationale. McCaule,
a native of Charlotte, is undefeat-
ed in his event, the 50 yard
freestyle. He is presently ranked
eleventh in the nation.
McCauley prepped at East
Mecklenburg, swimming three
letters. Upon being recruited by
ECU swim coach Ray Scharf,
McCauley set freshman records
in the 50 and 60 yard freestyles
and was a member of the 400 yard
freestyle medley relay team that
traveled to the nationals.
As a sophomore, McCauley
again went to the nationals but
failed to do as well as expected.
However, this year he has
bettered his times and feels
confident that he can do well in
the nationals. He has the first
place position eyed and will fight
for it.
It has taken twelve years of
experience for McCauley to get
where he is. He gives his parents
credit for motivating him. They
encouraged him to swim in
Amateur Athletic Union meets.
Coach Scharf, McCauley readily
admits, impressed him with his
"win philosophy" and McCauley
wants to give due credit to Scharf
for aiding him and encouraging
him when it was needed.
In the future, McCauley plans
to teach physical education at the
secondary level and, of oourse,
coach swimming.
"I hope I will be a benefit to
kids and help to motivate them
the way my past coaches have
me. I feel my success now and in
the future is due to my present
coach said McCauley.
Scharf commented, "John has
tremendous ability. He is a large
fellow, which is of great advant-
age to a sprinter. He seems more
determined this year and has a
purpose in mind. As far as the
swim is oonoerned, John is a
producer and that is a great aid to
us. He has gained his confidence
and I feel he should do well at the
The best time turned in by
McCauley this year in the 50 yard
freestyle is 21.2 seconds. To
qualify for the nationals he must
better his time by a mere .1
McCauley feels he will qualify
at the Eastern Regionals. This
meet is an important one which
ECU has a good chance of
winning. For this meet McCauley
and the other members of the
team will shave their bodies to
improve their times. This meet
will produce times of national
John McCauley has the exper-
ience, strength, physical stature,
confidence and desire to do well
at the nationals. He deserves it.
jumN McuAULt y is currently ranked eleventh in the nation in the 60-yard freestyle event.
