Fair price for power
The efforts of the oonsumer group Carolina
Action to reform utility rates in North Carolina should
receive greater popular support than the sparse
attendance at Tuesday's forum sponsored by the
League of Women Voters. Two bills that Carolina
Action are sponsoring in the N.C. Legislature this
session attempt to correct a topsy-turvy rate system
in which the heaviest users of electricity pay the least
per kilowatt hour.
These two plans, Lifeline and Fair Share, would
reduce the rate per kilowatt hour that residential
customers pay. Lifeline guarantees to all users a
basic power supply of up to 500 kilowatt hours at a
reduced rate. If more electricity than the "Lifeline"
amount is used, the customer is penalized with a
higher rate. The other plan, Fair Share, seeks to
equalize the rate per kilowatt hour of residential,
commercial and industrial users. Charges to
residential customers for Carolina Power and Light
Co. in 1975 accounted for nearly 33 per cent of the
companies' revenues even though these consumers
used only one-quarter of the power company's total
generation. The big users, industry and businesses,
are thus having their bills subsidied by residential
users. Both these reform measures would encour-
age overall conservation and industrial efficiency.
For the utility industry, however, efficiency is not
required. State law assures the power-generating
monopolies a profit, whether or not the utilities
exercise sound business practices.
The Carolina Action proposals should be enacted
by the 1977 N.C. Legislature without its wavering to
the lobbying pressures of big business. The next
target of the consumer group should be a
rearrangement of the utility industry itself, to make it
practice the conservation it so fervidly preaches to
Cold town, warm heart

We've weathered cold temperatures, rain, more

almost bearable. Maybe this oT farm village has a
heart after all.

BUC staff leaves decision to students
We, not only as the staff of
the 1977 BUCCANEER, but also
as concerned members of the
student body at ECU, wish to
voice our opinions on the contro-
versial BUC issue, and to dear up
any misconceptions involving the
present conditions under which
we are operating.
As of February 1, 1977, this
staff was allocated $4,350.00 by
the SGA with which to pay
salaries to ten editorial and
business personnel.Later a $25.00
allocation for office and printing
supplies and a $50.00 allocation
for phone bills were passed by
As of February 11, after one
week of subscription and adverti-
sing campaigns, only 85 students
have bought yearbooks, and a
mere 100 ads have been sold.
This means that the grand total to
print 85 books is $520.00. The
proposed contract is as follows: 1)
9X 12" size; 2) 1,000 copies; 3)
224 pages; 4) type on all pages; 5)
hardback; 6) silkscreen. Price:
$5,998.00. This contract allows
for no color, no special effects. All
items are subject to change. The

pages at $93.00 per four pages
that would be necessary to order
to print mug shots. The Seniors
will not have another chance to
appear in the yearbook, hopefully
the rest of the student body will.
This decision is not one that the

one that seems to have no
It is the concensus of this staff
that selling ads and subscriptions
is not the ideal means by which to
procure funds to print. The SGA

Former staffer questions antagonists
There has been much
criticism of FOUNTAINHEAD (or
F-head has one writer has been
putting it) lately and I am here to
ask a few questions myself.
First, let me touch on the
question of salaries. When I was
Sports Editor, I made the total
sum of $90 per month. According
to the publications' manual,
which was put into effect a couple
of years ago by the old Pub
Board, which was controlled by
the SGA, I was to keep at least
nine office hours a week, not
including writing, travel, or lay-
out time. Layout time generally
ran seven hours on Mondays and
Wednesdays. Writing time often
took three or four hours for both
papers a week. Considering eight
papers per month, I was making
75 cents an hour. This little bit of
money (actually token money and
nothing else) to watch my grades
fall because of the time put in to
get a presentable sports section to
you, the students.
Newspaper work is a skill job.
There's more to say than yes or
no, as your job requires, Prez.
Anyone who has the least bit of
knowledge of parliamentary pro-
cedures can do your job. But,
experience and a will to work are
needed to be in newspaper work.
Which would you, the stu-
dent, rather do? Would you
rather work a oouple or three
hours a day saying yay or nay to
legislation and attend one meet-
ing of the legislature a week for
$150 a month or slave over a
typewriter for 30 or more hours a
week for $90 per month?
Paper cries 'wolf
Your attacks on the SGA and
Sullivan remind me of the boy
who cried wolf. You have been
crying wolf so long that you have
lost your credibility. Now these
people may be wolves but you
have not closed the case on them.
The tendency now seems to be
mud slinging. Thursday's paper I
hope ends this with a writer for
your paper writing a letter to the
editor. A oommunity of 12,000
people has many subjects that
need to be oovered. There are
many organizations in that oom-
munity that would pray for
one-tenth of the space that has
been used for these attacks. Your
banner says a circulation of 8500.
That means right there that you
are missing almost a third of the
campus. For a free paper that's
pretty bad, especially when I see
many copies still in the racks on
your next publication date. I feel
if you attack the rea. problems on
campus and really investigate
them thoroughly before printing
them, we oould all have a paper to
be proud of. I would indeed like tc
see a strong publications board
that would oontrol such meander-
ings by the editor of the campus
Now to you Mr. Johnson. Mr.
Johnson, if the students will
remember, did a fine five-part
article on an escaped prisoner
from a Mexican jail who had been
put there on alleged drug char-
ges. The articles were very good,
Mr. Johnson, but weren't you a
bit biased in your reporting. The
series was not an editorial yet I
saw nowhere in any of the articles
where you retrieved quotes from
the Mexican officials who put
Steve Wilson in jail. You were
even slanderous in your writing of
the Drug Enforcement Admini-
stration (DEA) agent who
allegedly forced the confession
out of Wilson and his comrade.
Don't get me wrong, I am much
on Mr. Wilson's side in this case,
but you were most biased in your
reporting. And, Mr. Johnson,
how about the fit you threw when
one editor on the staff rejected
your article because of style
problems and beina biased.
Now, to the favoritism in

Whitfield, whose business is
located in Roanoke Rapids, em-
ploys a crew of about six persons
during the crop spraying season.
The season usually lasts from
June to October. And Whitfield
has no trouble finding work.

local, around Roanoke Rapids in
North Carolina and Virginia.

Whitfield uses three airplanes
for dusting, of which his pride
and joy is his Thrush Command-
"The Thrush Commander can
cruise for over four hours and can
haul up to 400 gallons of
chemicals said Whitfield.

sprayed on North Carolina farms
is 20 acres, according to Tom

Would you believe
The world of words
One of the biggest changes I have had to endure in oollege is the
severe alteration of my amount of leisure time. Back in high school, I
had mae than enough time to talk on the phone, to watch the tube, and
to read books. Fa pleasure.
Not so in oollege. The only chance I get to curl up with a good book
(a a trashy one) is when I'm home on break.
Oh, I read, of oourse. I read mae than ever, as a matter of fact. But
face it, there's a Hell of a big difference between Anthology of French
Literature and Valley of the Dolls.
Recently, however, I ran into a week where I actually had some
spare time. I had no problem entertaining myself at first. It was
amazing how much I was able to enjoy such activities as staring at the
cinder blocks in the wall and plucking my eyebrows. Eventually,
though, I began to yearn fa something a bit mae stimulating,
something that would be a (non-alcoholic) escape fa me, something
like a book.
In total bliss, I wandered down to the trusty old Central News,
armed with three dollars and great expectations of the reading
pleasure awaiting me.
I entered the stae and was literally bowled over by the myriad of
displaysand racks I encountered. I felt like a kid in a toy stae. I finally
settled into the serious business of perusing the shelves.
After about 20 minutes of blinding search, I came to the conclusion
that I had gotten a little rusty at this book-picking business. My
choices, it seemed, ran along the lines of reading either one of those
"Dark, Passion, Sweet. Savage books (you know, the kind where the
heroine gets raped five times by some Mexican revolutionary befae
deciding she'sin love with him, and will pursue him faever, a I oould
choose a how-to" book (How to: lose weight, gain weight, enjoy sex,
faget sex. cook meat, live without meat, etc.) I was turned off by both
types; the instruction books reminded me too much of textbooks, and
I ve never been much fa Harlequin Romanoes.
Another very popular type of paperback available is the political
scandal series. This genre has become immensely popular since
Watergate. I could have read about all the president's men. all the
president's women, all the president's tapes, and all the president's
rapes, etc. Those are fine fa sane, I suppose, but I can generally find
out mae juicy infamatioi about the bigwigs in D.C. from Roia Barrett
anda my friend Path down the hall.
Finally, in desperation, I began pleading to my bookwam friends
fa help m finding the ideal book. My friend the Fitzgerald freak
recommended Gatsby. Another pal, who is into consciousness-raising,
pointed me toward books on that subject, but all "ESP istomeispart
of a French verb (and Eastern Standard Time).
One fellow made great effats to interest me in the ethereal,
fantastic wald of Tolkien, but I found I could identify neither with
Bilbo Baggins na with dwarves. (Sary, Hobbit)
A well-meaning neighba offered me her oopy of Helter Skelter, but
Id already read it, and besic'es, I couldnt take the nightmares it would
I asked a dude downtown if he' d read any good books lately, and he
offered to take me back to his trailer to show me his Wonder Woman
and Green Hanet" comic books. I politely declined, explaining that
I'd already seen most of them.
My frustration was getting so "omplete that I finally called my
mother to see if she had any good books to loan me. She said she had
no books, but that shed seen my sister reading some kind of
cookbook called Breakfast of Champions (Sary, Vainegut fans.)
By this time, I had collected a Dile of barowed books ranging from
The Lite and Times of the Pokomo Tribe of Kenya, to Dont Spare the

'Pelleas courageous but disappointing
By DAVID Ft. BOSNICK
Experimental theatre cannot
be judged on the (mere) '�spects
of its success or failure. One
considers the viability of intent
and the consideration given to a
new or recently revived genre.
The Student Workshop produc-
tion of Pelleas and Melisande is
not a successful production. It is
however, a courageous attempt at
creation of theatre of process. It
fails because there are depths in
all aspects of the play, that are
Maeterlinck was a philosopher
who admitted that his plays were
an attempt at inner reflection. His
theatric efforts were done with an
attempt to crystallize his moods
and weave them into a pattern
with a sense of emotional flux. It
is a sense of intense psychological
introspection. When the audience
is left to view this series of mood
presentations, they must suc-
cumb to Maeterlinck's sense of
the theatre as a womb. The
audience, through the delicate
incorporation of special effects
must be moved through the
scenarios without conscious effort
of movement. For the time of the
performance, there must be no
surfacing for breath.
Pelleas and Melisande is
often done as an opera. The music
is by Debussey and this orches-
tration sets the mood for the
audience. It provides screening of
the actual mechanics of theatre.
This noise, the constant annoying
reminder that this was a play,
removed one from the movements
on the stage. When not totally
involved in this type of produc-
tion, the audienoe becomes mere-
ly interested and begins to watch,
rather than experience.
The lighting for a show of this
type must be done with the
concept that all is, truly, a
shifting of shadows and percept-
ions. There can be no sudden
shifts, no unrealistic illumination.
All tracing must be subtly con-
ceived. This necessary effect was
not consistently achieved, but
was, I believe, constantly attemp-
ted. There are limitations to the
illusions one can create in this
small theatre. The flaws were
notioeable when one was able to
discern the source of the light,
from the annoying shrouds of
symbolic crepe overhead. William
Devins, the student director of
lighting, approximated subtlety
wherever possible and there were
no glaring errors in perception. It
is hard to ask an audience to
accept the gentle rise of the
moon, when they are submitted to
the audible click and hum of
The scenery fa this produc-
tion was poorly conceived. When
one is confronted with theatre of
the mood, the less actual sense of

earthly trapping there is, the
easier one can lose himself in the
shifts of sensation. The large and
wooden vertical pillars were for
the sense of shadow and spacial
alteration and this reviewer
understands the concepts, but
believes that the actual setting
could have been distilled further
into mere blocks of ascension with
the light playing the role of
The lack of silent scenario
alteration oould not be overcome
by what was the worst aspect of
this production; the performance
of the players. There is little in
drama that is harder to explicate
than mood. The dialogue of
Maeterlinck is, as he himself
wrote, "merely stating the ob-
vious These lines seemed to
frighten the players as they can
emote, but not feel the emotions
without vocalizations. They are
not merely out of their depth,
(though they are) they are out of
their genre. This is the type of
theatre performed by meditative
actors, who draw their strength
from themselves. In this theatre
of process, there is no light
emanating from any of the play-
ers, promote reflection or emo-
Pelleas (Terry Pickard) never
found the use fa his presence on
the stage. He flitted about as if
constantly frightened, and his
intensity surfaced in the form of
an alto-grade-schcoler. Pelleas
was not intended to be performed
as a brawl ing hero, but he was not
a frightened boy. Mr. Pickard
never understood his role, and
was annoyingly weak.
Melisande (Paige Weaver) did
well at the points where she did
not articulate. When given
speeches fraught with emotion,
her voice merely wavered, and
she found it necessary to stretch
symbolic words, into multi-sylla-
bic sighs. She needed greater
definition, reflection, one can
waft, but not flutter.
The remainder of the cast
attempted no interpretation of
Maeterlincks' conoept of perfor-
mance and in their roles dragged
the show from it's foundations in
fantasy. Hal Binkley, as Arkel,
did all but expire on stage as the
aged King, and his constant
whistling at the close of words
was not the rambling of an aged
leige, but the surface pretentions
of a poor performer.
Upon investigation into the
concepts behind this production,
this reviewer discovered that
much of the basic intent was
blocked by an administration that
refused to realize that there is
birth in experimentation. The
only true learning process in
theatre, for an actor or director,
comes through erroneous if sin-
cere attempts at structural and
thematic interpretation. When a
production is limited by rules that
stifle creativity, it smacks of
bureaucracy that is threatened
and creaks, rocking like a buffoon
to student princes.
A familiar rip-off
"The most unique production in the history of rock and roll
entertainment" is leaving a trail of complaints in its wake as it makes
the roundsof the campus circuit. "The Beatles Come Together from
Group Five Productions of Austin, Tex is billed as a multi-media
production. It is that, but some students have voiced objections about
what they received for the admission price of $3 or $4: a series of old
slides of the Beatles while Beatle records played in the background.
The show "probably isn't all it's cracked up to be said an
assistant State Attorney in Florida. After complaints, his office
investigated the show and got an agreement from the promoters to
honor refund requests from anyone wishing to leave the show in the
first 45 minutes.

Women's basketball ends
The Baptist Student Union girls' team has won the women's
intramural basketball championship by downing a tough Nock's
Nockers squad, 39-38, in Minges Coliseum on Tuesday.
As they have had to do all season, the BSUers had to come from
behind to beat their opposition with a strong second half defense and
the good inside play of Jean Evans.
Evans scored 18 points in the championship win and totaled
51-points in the three playoff games. In a losing cause, Marsha Person
scored 18 for the Nockers despite being double-teamed most of the
game. She finished with 41 points in two playoff games, as the Nockers
won their semifinal contest by forfeit.
The BSU team trailed by 12-4 early in the game, but rallied to score
14 straight points for a 16-12 lead. They never trailed after that,
although the Nockers rallied to tie the game at 36-36 with just over a
minute to play.
BSU countered with a basket and a free throw with less than a
minute to play and the Nockers final score came at the buzzer, when
they trailed by three.
BSU will now represent ECU in an Intramural Champions
Basketball Tournament to be held in March between Appalachian
State. UNC-Wilmington and Atlantic Christian College. East Carolina
will host the tournament.
The First Intramural Ice Ball championship was also decided on
Tuesday as the Intramural Staff (IMS) topped the Greek Freaks, 12-6,
at Twin Rinks Rec. Center.
I MS shot out to a 9-0 lead at the half and held off the Greek Freaks
in the second half. The Freaks, leading scorer Walter LaRogue, had
been the regular-season Ice Ball scoring champion, but Tuesday he
was held to only four points by the tough I MS defense of Bob Bailey at
goalie, Lynne Stout, John Evans, Rose Mary Adkins, David Brown and
Gwen Engelkhen. On offense IMS was led by Mike Edmondson with
six points and Sonny Gundlach with four points. Janis Smith added the
final points for the champions.
Greg Troupe and Lindsey Overton won the Intramura! Men's
Racquetball Title a few weeks back and we neglected to mention it
then.He also reached the finals in the singles' competition.
Men's playoffs in basketball began Monday and a few major upsets
were recorded. The biggest upset of all found the Rockets downing the
Desperados in the semifinals of the Independent league, 49-39. Al
MoCrimmons led the seventh-ranked Rockets past the third-ranked
Desperados with 17 points.
In the fraternity division neither of the pre-tournament favorites for
the finals made it. Kappa Sigma nipped Pi Kappa Phi, 50-48, on a sha
by Ron Stumpo with four seconds left, and Kappa Alpha raced past
Kappa Alpha Psi, 40-29. Pi Kappa Phi and Kappa Alpha Psi had tied
for the regular season fraternity league championship with 9-1 marks,
but all that went for naught in the playoffs. In the Kappa Sigma-Pi
Kappa Phi matchup Stumpo outdueled leading intramural scorer
Lennie Blackley. Stumpo hit for 23 points, while Blackley's cold
shooting netted only eight points, 20 below his season average. Art
Graepel also had 15 fa Kappa Sigma and Steve Harris led Pi Kappa
Phi with 17 points.
The dormitory league is going into its final games on Thursday with
about everything as it was expected to be. Through Wednesday's
semifinal rounds, only one major upset had been recorded.
In that game the Belk TNT upset Belk Lo and Co, 62-47, in a very
physical game that found three of the losers' players injured by the
TNT's Harold Randolph. After the game Randolph was expelled fa
further playoff action fa rough play.
In other games, the Figures Revised made it to the final four after
surviving a 49-48 scare against the Carolina Stars. The Figures took the
lead late in the game, but had to hold their breaths befae a last second
shot by the Stars hit the rim and fell away. The Jones Boys, the Nutties
Buddies and the Belk TNT's are the other Dam semifinalists. In the
club division the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) upset the
Rugby Leathernuts to reach the finals of that league against the BSU

the score onoe again, 23-23.
Freeman and Kerbaugh con-
tinued to add points, but again a
weak defense against Carolina's
shots kept the score close. Debbie
Tritt soored on a layup with
seconds left to give ECU the lead
at the half, 36-35.
As the second half got under
way, the Pirates tightened up
their defense and began to rYiove.
With bursts of momentum, the
team opened up a nine point rift
over the Tarheels. Had the clock
run out then, a victory would have
been assured, for the Pirates, but
12 minutes remained, and Caro-
lina became determined to make
up the difference.
Joan Leggett and Cathy
Daniels led the Tarheels back up
to a tie score with 3 minutes left,
and then pulled to a three point
lead with two minutes to go.
As always happens in close
games, fouls can make the
difference between winning and
losing, and ECU'S 20 verses
UNC's 15 narrowed the gap.
With one minute remaining,
Debbie Freeman hit from outside
to pull the Pirates two points
closer, and repeated the feat
within seconds to close in to put
the Pirates ahead.
With two seconds left, the
Pirates led by one with a jump
ball at Carolina's foul line.
Carolina shot and missed and the
Pirates won their last home game
Debbie Freeman led the
Pirates scoring with 30 points,
followed by Gail Kerbaugh with
17. April Ross with seven and
Cathy Suggs with six.
Although the winning margin
was one point, the Lady Pirates
have every reason to take pride in
their win. Not only did they
win without high scorers Rosie
Thompson or Linda McLlean, but
even those who played were far
from their best shape.
Cathy Suggs, who was injured
last week in a very physical game
against Old Dominion, played
much of the game with stitches
remaining from a cut lip. To play
in a game this rough, with risk of
reinjury so likely, says a lot about
the dedication of the players to
As the UNC crowd slowly left
the stands, 11 very ecstatic
Pirates whooped it up across the
floor, while Coach Bolton smiled
contentedly, "I'm very proud of
them-they really worked hard to
