ECU students 'get rowdy'
By DEBBIE JACKSON
Co-NewsEdita
Spnng fever hit downtown
Greenville last Thursday night
as student revelers ocngregated
along Cotanche Street, stopping
motaistsand laying claim to the
street.
Pete Podeszwa, an ECU
student, said that he believed
the excited atmosphere started
in Thursday's where Mother's
Finest was playing.
I was there fa the last set
they did and the crowd was
going crazy. They loved it
said Podeszwa.
A Goading to Podeszwa, the
aowd became uneasy when the
group refused to play any mae
after oie enoae.
"As I saw it, the crowd left a
little bit disgusted. One guy
threw a beer bottle on stage
Following the perfamance,
the aowd moved out to Cotan-
che Street. Podeszwa estimated
the aowd at approximately 250.
"I couldn't believe the a-
mount of people there. They
were just carrying on and
generally raising hell
Podeszwa said that the
aowd gathered around 1 a.m.
and remained on the street until
about 2 flO.
See CROWD, pg. 3
Williams was also a member
of the Executive Council. Un
Executive Council is comprised
of the Society's officers along
with representatives from four
schools throughout the nation.

Worker dignity denied
The anti-union tactics of the J. P. Stevens
textile firm are both a disgrace to the American
free enterprise system and an affont to the dignity
of industrial workers in the South.
The Southern textile industry is America's last
major unorganized manufacturing industry, with
fewer than 20 per cent of the region's 589,000
textile workers belonging to a union. With annual
sales topping the $1 billion mark, Stevens employs
44,000 workers in more than 80 mills.
In Roanoke Rapids where Stevens operates
seven mills, a majority of the company employees
voted in 1974 to be represented by the Textile
Workers Union of America. After three years of
debates and demonstrations by the workers,
Stevens still refuses to negotiate a contract with
union officials.
The company utilizes a variety of underhanded
tactics to crush the union. The National Labor
Relations Board has found Stevens guilty of
illegally firing 289 employees for union activities.
I n 1973 Stevens was ordered to pay TW U A $50,000
in damages for wiretapping a union organizer's
motel room. Now that the union is a reality with
which Stevens must negotiate, the company
refuses to bargain in good faith or to submit
unsettled grievances to impartial third parties for
arbitration.
Unless Stevens begins to respect employee
needs and reoognize their right to organize and
demand proper compensation for their labor, an
embittered fight could ensue between workers and
management in the rapidly industrializing South.
Union supporters have already begun to organized
a boycott of Stevens' products to bring the
mammoth corporation to the bargaining table-in
good faith.
In North Carolina, the soene of Stevens
beachhead with the TWUA, industrial workers can
ill afford the slowdown. Wages here are already 16
per cent below the national average. If the South is
to continue to mature economically there must be
more attention paid to its workers, certainly more
than is now. One Stevens worker at Roanoke
Rapids who had been with the company for over 30
years was asked how much he would receive in
retirement pay if he were to retire tomorrow.
"Sixty dollars a month he replied. Over half of a
man's productive lifetime is given to Stevens, and
to them it's worth only $15 a month in retirement
benefits.

Officials pledge support to overpass
By ROBERT M.SWAIM
Asst. News Editor
The much discussed and badly needed
pedestrian overpass at 10th St. and College Hill
will soon become a reality, and it is long overdue.
Last month I conferred with Governor James
B. Hunt, Lt. Governor Jimmy Green, and
Attorney General Rufus Edmisten about our need
for an overpass.
Governor Hunt was very responsive and
appeared to be genuinely concerned about the
safety of ECU students. The governor has
assured me that he will seriously pursue this
worthy project.
Lt. Governor Green was also very attentive
and concerned when I explained our dilemma about
the overpass. Mr. Green has asked me to gather
the necessary data concerning the overpass and
forward it to him. Governor Hunt also asked me
to personally gather information on the overpass
and send it to the governors mansion.
Attorney General Rufus Edmisten told me
personally that he intends to help in every way
possible.
On March 17, I will journey to the state capital
and deliver the report that I have prepared to the
lieutenant governor.
I owe many thanks to SGA Vice-President
Greg Pingston for his unselfish cooperation and
help in preparing the overpass report. Greg has
done a tremendous job and deserves a lot of
credit fa his efforts on behalf of the ECU student
body.
The need for the overpass is tremendous. It is
necessary to insure the safety of thousands of
ECU students who daily must cross the
dangerous intersection to get to their classes on
the main campus. There are approximately 2500
students living on the hill, there are also
hundreds of day students who utilize the parking
lots at the bottom of the hill. Each of these
students must take their life into their hands
when they cross the street to get to their classes.
There have been numerous serious accidents
at this intersection. Fortunately none have
involved pedestrians, although one coed was
struck last year while aossing the intersection on
a bicycle. Just last week there was anaher
accident, involving two automobiles, both were
heavily damaged.
The overpass will benefit na only pedes-
trians, but maaists as well. Motaists will no
longer have to wait and watch fa students
aossing the intersection. As is quite often the
case now, students will begin aossing the street
when there is a break in traffic and continue to
aossthe street in a steady stream, thus blocking
traffic.
The overpass would eliminate the dangerous
practice of darting between cars and damn near
getting killed in the process. Motaists would no
longer have to keep an eye out fa pedestrians,
and therefae could keep their eye on the road.
It is a shame that it has taken khis long to get
such a deserving project off of the ground. The
students of ECU were simply the victims of
partisan politicson the part of the Transpatatioi
Department (DOT) under the Holshouser admin-
istration. It seems strange that DOT could not
find a paltry $210,000 to insure the safety of
thousands of students, but there was plenty of
money fa paving roads in Watauga county

Supporters fight racism
15 March 1977 FOUNTAINHEAD Page 5
Black youth denied
9 9
eafor new trial
(LNS)-Gary Tyler, an 18
year-old black youth charged
and convicted fa murder, and
serving a sentence of life
imprisonment, was denied his
appeal for a new trial by the
Louisiana Supreme Court on
January 24. Tyler's case has
becomea national symbol of the
fight against racism, and his
supporters plan to continue the
fight to reverse his oonviction.
Tyler is now going to appeal his
case to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Tyler's defense based the
state appeal on two key issues:
the unfair composition of the
jury in the original trail, and the
recantation of testimony by the
state's key witness, Natalie
Blanks.
Tyler had been convicted by
an all-white jury in 1975 which
was selected from a predomin-
antly white jury pool in a parish
(Louisiana's equivalent to a
county) which is 40 percent
black. The recent Louisiana
court ruling refused to consider
this fact on the grounds that the
original defense lawyer did not
object to it at the time.
The oourt also refused to
accept the recantation, reason-
ing that the original judge,
Ruche Marino was the most
qualified to decide when Blanks
lied and when she told the truth.
Blanks has said, however, that
Judge Marino was one of the
public officials who forced her to
testify against Tyler in the first
place.
The murder charges for
which Tyler was convicted stem
from the shooting death of a
white student during a mob
attack on a bus load of black
students leaving Destrehan
High School in October of 1974.
Tyler was arrested during the
incident after he complained of
the brutal treatment received
by black students at the hands
of the police and was charged
with "interfering with t&e-law
This charge was later changed
to murder even though available
evidence points to the shots
coming from the attacking mob,
and the usual ballistics inform-
ation about angle of entry of the
bullet, etc. is missing from the
autopsy report.
SUPPORT FOR TYLER
Upon hearing of the state
supreme oourt's decision,
Tyler's mother, Juanita Tyler
said, "Thefuture isto fight. I'm
not giving up. I'm asking a lot
more people to get involved. We
need a national movement. It
will take rallies, marches and
a lot more. I'll be fighting and
struggling until there's no more
Mrs. Tyler. Not just for my son,
but for all that isoomingdown
In a statement from St.
James Parish prison in Louisi-
ana, Tyler urged his supporters
to continue to fight. "I wasn't
expecting a right decision and I
wasn't surprised. I also don't
expect to get justice in the U.S.
Supreme Court. I'm not de-
pending on any court; the
people are going to free me
Last July, over 2,000 of
Tyler's supporters gathered in
New Orleans and marched down
the city's main streets. On
October 7, 1976 ever 92,000
names were handed to Governor
Edwin Edwards on petitions to
free Tyler. Despite laws pro-
hibiting demonstrations outside
courthouses in Louisiana,
hundreds of Tyler supporters
picketed the court hearing his
appeal on November 10.
In an unusual move, the
Louisiana Supreme Court in-
structed the district court to
sentence Gary Tyler to life
imprisonment at hard labor with
no chance of parole for twenty
years. This is the maximum
sentence possible in Louisiana
at this time.
The defense does not expect
the U .S. Supreme Court to grant
a retrial and is preparing for
another round of appeals on
other grounds.

COACH
Continued from pg. 1
University of Minnesota in 1975.
During that year, Gillman
brought in the current stars of
this year's dub: Allen Thomp-
son, Sam Williams, Winfred
Boynes, Bill Cartwright and
James Hardy.
Gillman's recruiting efforts
were tabbed by all national
publications as the tops in the
country that year.
While at Minnesota, Sept.
1975 to June 1976, the Gophers
boosted their recruits such that
they were tabbed 15th overall in
theoountry in recruiting and the
following year posted a 24-3
record.
The first oollege experience
for Gillman came at the Univer-
sity of Houston from 1973-1974.
He worked there as a graduate
assistant coach under Guy Lewis
during a 19-7 year.
Gillman's first coaching job
was at Mt. Vernon High School
in New York. He assisted Coach
Gus Williams (USCGolden
State), Earl Tatum (Marquette
Lakers) and Rudy Hackett (Syra-
cuse all-America) to two consec-
utive state championships,
something never done in New
York before.
In 1972, Gillman worked as
an assistant coach at Westches-
ter Community College and
guided his club to a 35-3 record,
also producing three all-Ameri-
ca players.
Asa player, Gillman was an
all-county guard at Tuckahoe
High School. His oollege career
was curtailed as a sophomore
due to an ankle injury.
Gillman commented, "I feel
East Carolina University's over-
all situation, with emphasis on
help from the administration,
community and faculty, can be
exceptional. Recruiting is the
tough part, but East Carolina
has a lot to offer.
"I plan to have a quick
tempo style with aggressive
defense. I want the defense to
make the offense. If one creates
turnovers, one gets more shots
and scores more points.
"I pride myself in the ability
to communicate with all groups.
My door will always be open.
One must oommunicate proper-
ly to be successful.
"My top priority is recruit-
ing and picking a staff
Gillman is married and is a
graduate of the University of
San Francisco with a B.A.
degree.

Pitt jail has no room for state prisoners
By ROBERT SWAIM
Asst. News Editor
Pitt County Sheriff Ralph
Tyson said recently that it would
be difficult to house state
prisoners in the Pitt County jail.
Tyson's comment was made
in response to Gov. James B.
Hunt's announcement that
county sheriffs will be asked to
house state prisoners in county
jails to relieve overaowding in
the state's prisons.
"Pitt County at the present
time is running at full capacity,
said Tyson.
"We would like to work with
the governor but it should be on
a voluntary basis
Tyson said that the Pitt
County jail averaged 65 prison-
ers per day fa February.
"We have to accommodate
prisoners from seven towns
said Tyson.
Tyson said that additional
staff would have to be hired if
the jail has to accommodate
state prisoners
Tyson added that at the
present time the jail staff
consists of two cooks, four
jailers, and four matrons.
According to Tyson, the
Dept. of Corrections only comes
around twice a week to pick up
prisoners and transport them to
the state's prisons.
The county jail imprisons
those prisoners who are await-
ing trial or who are waiting to be
transported to the state prison.
Some prisoners are already
serving their time in the county
jail, according to Tyson.
Anybody who has less than
30 days is pulling their time in
the oounty jail said Tyson.
Tyson said that trouble with
prisoners is usually the result of
them having nothing to do.
"We have a library for
prisoners. We also have minis-
ters who oome in about every
day and hold services for the
prisoners
Tyson said that only about
two or three ECU students are

committed to the jail per month.
"Most of them are usually
released on their own bond
except in the narootics cases
said Tyson.
During February the Pitt
County jail held 305 prisoners.
Of that number 45 were await-
ing trial and seven were serving
time.
The racial composition of the
jail population for February was
55-Negro and 45 white.
Tyson said that five juveniles
were held in the jail in Feb-
ruary. Some were charged with
rape, breaking and entering,
and larceny.
The sheriff said that he must
maintain cells for males, fe-
males, juvenile males, and
juvenile females.
According to the sheriff, if
state prisoners are housed in the
county jail the state will pay for
their upkeep.
"We keep prisoners (fe-
males and juveniles) fa other
counties, we're almost a re-
gional jail said the sheriff
Concerning the recent sug-
gestion by Attorney General
Rufus Edmisten that the gover-
nor should commute the senten-
ces of between 500 and 1,000
prisoners who are serving time
for minor drug offences, Sheriff
Tyson said that the prisoners
should remain incarcerated.
"As it is now our courts are
very liberal. It's very seldom
that a first offender gets time. I
feel like if he was bad enough to
go to prison then they ought to
keep them
Special paintings,
prints on display
A selection of paintings,
prints and drawings by Walter
Barker is on view at the
Wellington B. Gray Gallery at
ECU through March 28.
The exhibition, entitled
"Small Works from the Years
1947-1977 includes works re-
presentative of various periods
during the evolution of Barker's
style during the past 30 years.
Among the recent works are
paintings influenced by
Barker's interest in the ancient
Chinese book "l-Ching" (The
Book of Changes) founded upon
aesthetic principles established
in fifth-century China.
Earlier paintings reflect
Barker's influence by the art
and spirit of Greece, Persia and
Egypt, and by later European
schools of painting.
Barker is an associate pro-
fessor of art at UNC-Greens-
boro. He studied with Max
Beckmann at Washington Uni-
versity in St. Louis and later
taught there after additional
study at Indiana
University. Tran Gordley,
associate dean of the ECU
School of Art, studied painting
with Barker at Washington.
Barker has traveled and
studied throughout the world,
and before joining the UNC-
Greensboro art faculty, taught
at the Brooklyn Museum Art
School. His award-winning work
has been included in numerous
exhibitions and is part of the
permanent collection of several
museums, including the
Museum of Modern Art and the
Boston Museum of Fine Arts.

2 of top 49 profs get awards
15 March 1977 FOUNTAINHEAD Page 7
Undergraduates rank faculty
Last spring every undergraduate student who preregistered fa Fall Quarter
received an IBM voting card-and the oppatunity to vote fa up to three of the
teachers he had had during the 1975-76 academic year whom he believed to be
outstanding. Mae than 34 of the 6,980 students cast votes which rated each of
their nominees on an intensity scale of excellence: 10 (highest), 8 a 6. The results
are now in.
Based upon the student vote, the Instructional Survey Committee of the Faculty
Senate, which designed and carried out the survey, selected 49 faculty members
from among the 660 who were statistically comparable. These are faculty whom
students believed to be the outstanding undergraduate teachers during 1975-76.
Their names are listed below.
The Instructional Survey Committee also surveyed faculty opinion in each
department a school regarding outstanding teachers in that unit. Mae than
oie-third of the teachers listed also appeared in the top 10 of their colleagues'
vote. Ranking in the top 10 of the faculty vote fa hisher department a school is
indicated by an asterisk next to the instructa's name.
A similar survey of administratas was taken at the same time, but the results
were inconclusive. Professa Farr explained "administratas are often teachers too;
drawing the line between them therefae becomes difficult indeed. Chairpersons of
departments and deans,of many schools were included in the faculty survey
TOP-RANKED TEACHERS IN STUDENT SURVEY
(In Alphabetical Order)
Names marked with an asterisk () are those which also appeared in
the top 10 of the faculty vote fa that department a school.
An impatant reasoi fa these surveys was to obtain infamatioi fa the Alumni
Association's outstanding teacher awards-two $500 awards fa teaching excellence
during the previous year. Frances Daniels of Business Education and Everett C.
Simpson of the Biology Department received the Alumni Association awards fa
1975-76 at the ECU Christmas Convocation. These awards had not been given fa
several years, Ms. Farr noted, because there had been no acceptable method of
evaluating teaching.
"The support of Provost Howell, the cooperation of Richard Lennon and Evans
Harris of the Computer Center, and the unflagging energy of the Committee
members made this administration and tabulation of these surveys possible said
Ms. Farr. Equally impatant wasthe cooperation of the studentsand faculty in taking
the survey seriously.
This spring the Committee plans to survey students and faculty about
undergraduate teaching during the current academic year. IBM voting cards fa the
student survey will be available late in Spring Quarter (tentatively, April 25-27) in the
lobby outside the book stae. Voting fams fa the faculty and administrative surveys
will be sent near the end of Spring Quarter. The Committee hopes that the Alumni
Association Awards fa 1976-77 will then be made at the Faculty Convocation in the
fall.

Rodgers company lacking
Dance without motivation degenerates into mere musical
gymnastics. This lack of refined choreography was the basis for the
intolerably poor performance of the Rod Rodgers Dance Company.
The troupe was composed of prominent dancers, but intelligent
choreography is more than mere jumpsuit athletics.
The essence of dance of any type is to create its own energy as it
enhances the music. The intent of choreography must be higher
than mere orchestral coordination. This company is better suited
performing warm-ups for the Ice Capades.
This reviewer cannot comment upon all aspects of the
performance, as I chose to leave before the last numbers.
The program was disjointed and poorly planned a
announcements were made. The best of the pieces was
by a woman whose name was mumbled through the intercom,4WI
was lost on this reviewer. The dance was basicaly a series of
from the Karate discipline of Aikido. She proved to be the
of the troupe in that her movements and motivations were 8fT
defined. The music accompanying this particular number was poor,
as the discordant quitar intruded on the strength of the dramatic
structure of the piece. This early number was the best of the worst.
Rodgers' ineptitude surfaced horribly in the number Interval
Two. In this piece, there were several dancers on stage. Rodger's
inability to bring a sense of emotion to the piece left the dancers
cavorting about the stage in linear movements that were confused
and flaccid. They constantly repeated themselves(though a sense of
monotony was intended) until the dance drew mercifully to an
inconclusive finish.
Theunmotivated movement of the group was epitomized in Love
Flower, where a woman in a long white dress made historic fertility
movements to the tunes of a poor blues number. This dance of
"intimate dedication was done to the spine of her recalcitrant
lover. The number was saccharine and tired; as the woman clumsily
fought with her own missteps and misdirection. At times she
hopped about like a demented rabbit.
I regret having mentioned this company in my last oolumn. The
space would have better been devoted to a seminar on careers in
motel management.

Park� one is willing to accept the promise of an eleven pound
fetus leaping out of his laboring mother's uterus and slaughtering

the polluting of our environment, but the scenes are blatant and
poorly timed. The film chooses to move from cheap horror tactics to
unsubstantiated abilities on the part of the infant. The child
resembles a bulbous Truman Capote with daws, and proceeds to
destroy most of a coastal aty in search of family. This film should be
dragged out and shot. (Not unlike the infant zero stars.)

Cowboy fails to match
golden past at the Attic
By MICHAELFUTCH
Assistant Trends Editor
Last Wednesday night,
March 9, was to be a good night
for country rock fanatics.
Cowboy, at one time the
premier East Coast country rock
band, was to perform at the
Attic in downtown Greenville.
Cowboy, however, proved to
not be the Cowboy of old, but a
band that has moved on to a
different sound in order to
survive in the erratic music
rat-race of the '70s.
A band named Taxi started
the evening off with a thump.
From Cincinnati, Ohio, this
group opened up with Aero-
smith and eventually proceeded
to fade into heavy metal
oblivion. With bands like this,
it's a wonder that there aren't
more deaf troupes making the
circuit.
The group toyed with a
McCartneyBeatles medley and
made a heavy metal anthem out
of "Rollin' In My Sweet Baby's
Arms My personal advice for
this band istocall acaband pull
a Howard Hughes until acoustic
music makes a mass comeback.
Cowboy, under the auspices
of Scott Boyer and Tommy
Talton. released their first al-
bum in 1970, REACH FOR THE
SKY. Their second, 5'LL
GETCHA TEN. released in '71
still remains an almost flawless
counfy rock classic. It's only
drawback from reaching that
plateau is the mix, which was
under the direction of Capri-
corn' s Johnny Sandlin.
The second album included
Chuck Leavel (now of Sea Level)
on piano and a brilliant South-
ern guitarist named Duane
Allman, who played slide dobro
on "Please Be With Me This
song was later recorded by Eric
Clapton on 467 OCEAN
BOULEVARD. The album also
included "All My Friends
later recorded by Greg Allman's
LAID BACK.
Cowboy released a solid LP
in 1974, entitled BOYER AND
TALTON. Boyer emerged from
this album as the better of the
two songwriters, displaying his
creativeness with near classic
country ballads such as "Every-
one Has a Chance to Feel" and
"Message In the Wind
The group played with Greg
Allman on his solo tour in '74.
The poor ON TOUR LP came
from the concert tapes made
during this period.
This reviewer was lucky to
see Cowboy during the period of
the BOYER AND TALTON
album. Backing up Wet Willie
at UNC-Wilmington. this band
added more than one loyal
devotee that evening with a
fantastic show. Although Boyer
has the hand for lyrics and a
shakey but deceptively good
country voice. Talton exhibited
a tour de force on lead and slide
guitar that night.
Cowboy, sadly enough, was
an entirely different band
Wednesday night. There were
flashes of the past, but the
majority of the work was new
material. The band remains in
its country roots, but there was
a great deal of experimentation
in other fields. Much of Cow-
boy's music seemed to be
oriented to a dance hall, playing
funky and at times, disco
inclined material.
A lot of the music seemed to
be an extension of Talton's
disastrous '76 fling with
Johnny Sandlin and Bill Ste-
wart, in an album entitled
HAPPY TO BE ALIVE. The
album has to rank as one of the
most extreme cases of vinyl
waste in our generation - it was
and remains a horrible album.
Talton must have been happy to
embrace Boyer again for this
Cowboy tour.
Cowboy played an extremely
good version of Boyer's Please
Be With Me Another moment
of hurrah was "Where Can You
Go which opened with a
catchy guitar intro by Talton.
Boyer showed his guitar
versatility on an unnamed in-
strumental number which Cow-
boy used to excel in. The band
jammed a good bit, but much of
it sounded uninspired and
blatantly dull.
Cowboy has refused to live
in the past, as many bands do,
and possibly may suffer for it.
The new material fails to match
the old Cowboy's inventiveness
and melody.
The old Cowboy sounded
fresh and very much alive, as if
playing for fun. The new
Cowboy seems to be out to earn
that badly needed dollar - music
has become an income for Boyer
and Talton. Consequently, their
music suffers for it.

CHARLESTON, S.CPeo-
ple who know Charleston know
that unlike most tourist destina-
tions Charleston is not domi-
nated by hotels. In fact,
Charleston's skyline consists
almost entirely of 18th and 19th
oentury houses and churches
nestled together in the city's
789-acre historic district.
So where will the thousands
of visitors to the Spdeto Festival
this May 25-June 5 stay? Can
there possibly be enough
rooms?
According to Sallie T.
Kramer who is managing the
Spoleto Housing Bureau for the
Chamber of Commeo the
answer is "Yes
"There are plen of
rooms says Ms. Kr mer.
"There are hotel rooms as well
as rooms in people's houses.
Ms. Kramer points out that
even though late May is a
typically popular time in
Charleston, 22 Charleston
hotels have committed rooms to
the Festival and an additional 57
hotels from Myrtle Beach to

Sideline Chat
with STEVE WHEELER
New basketball coach
East Carolina has a new basketball coach, Larry Gillman,
formerly an assistant at the University of San Francisco. Gillman
jumps into a job that has, kept only three coaches for more than three
years during the 44 years of ECU basketball.
The 28-year old native of Mt. Vernon, N.Y who bears a striking
resemblance to Clemson's coach, Bill Foster, feels he can make a
winner out of East Carolina, not just on the present level, but
against the top competition in the nation.
"This is ACC country right now, but we're going to try and
change that. San Francisco faced the same problem trying to
compete with UCLA, but it was successful. The kids gravitate to
UCLA and the big schools, but I think we can change that.
�' I want to rise and I want to rise quickly. Some people in North
Carolina are going to laugh at that, I know
That is a very tall order for Gillman, but he has been successful
in the past with recruiting and hopes to continue.
In a television interview recently, Gillman said, "I'm going to
try to bring in some of the kids I have been recruiting for USF in
here. And we are going to continue to recruit the same people the
past staff has been recruiting
Gillman was an all-county player in his high school days at
Tuckahoe High School in Mt. Vernon, N.Y. and played a year and a
half of college basketball before ending his career with an ankle
injury.
While still an undergraduate, he assisted with the team at Mt.
Vernon that won two successive New York state titles. No other
team has ever done that. That team included Earl Tatum, formerly
of Marquette and now with the Los Angeles Lakers, and the
Williams brothers - Gus of the Golden State Warriors, Ray of the
University of Minnesota and Sam, now with San Francisco, as well
as former all-America Rudy Hackett of Syracuse.
"There is another Williams around in junior college Gillman
said. "Maybe we can bring him in here
From Mt. Vernon, Gillman went to Westchester Community
College, serving as an assistant on a team that went 35-3 in twc
years.
Gillman worked as an assistant at the University of Houston fa
year before moving on to San Francisco. There in 1974, he recruited
the team of now-sophomores that was ranked first in the nation for
much of this season.
In September, 1975, Gillman went to Minnesota to work on the
staff the year after the recruiting scandal of 1974-75. After a year at
the Big Ten xhool, Gillman moved back to San Francisco, where he
has been the past year.
When asked about plans for a staff at ECU, Gillman said he had
no comment, although it has been learned that Billy Lee, a graduate
assistant on the Dave Patton staff, will likely receive a full-time
position with Gillman. Gillman said he would have two full-time
assistants and one grad assistant.
Gillman said he thought he oould gain support from the students
and from the community, a oommunity where ACC basketball is
king. "IT I didn't think I could do the job, I wouldn't be here. A
winning team will bring the people in and that is what I plan to
have�a winning oolorful team
Gillman said he plans to use an aggressive offense and defense,
pressing as much as possible.
"We want to make the other team make as many mistakes as we
can. The more they turn the ball over, the more chances we' II have
to score. And, with more chances to score, we'll get more points
Gillman plans to work with Ath.etic Director Bill Cain to build
the schedule up. East Carolina already has Indiana for an opener
next year at Bloomington, Indiana, as well as four ACC teams on the
road.
"I haven't had a chance to meet with the players, but I'm going
to tell them right away that our first objective is to beat Indiana
Gillman thinks being an independent will help with recruiting,
because "we'll be able to play anyone
TALL ORDER
Gillman has a tall order brnging a winning basketball program
to East Carolina. There are several reasons: a limited budget; com-
peting against the TV audience of the ACC schools; and changing
the attitude with which ECU basketball is taken by its fans.
Gillman is a most energetic man with a lot of new ideas-good
ideas. If he can overcome the odds of the budget, the ACC and gain
support within the campus and oommunity he oould do the job.
Open with win
Pirates beat Baptists,
3 move to nationals
By KIP SLOAN
Staff Writer
Under Saturday afternoon's
threatening skysEast Carolina's
track and field team soundly
defeated Baptist College by a
score of 77-63.
The first events of the day
were the field skills, with
George Jackson taking the long
jump with a 22'10" leap.
Robert Bailey won both the
shot put (46' 7") and the discus
events (151'), and was the only
double winner in the meet.
ECU sprinters swept the
440, with Charlie Moss winning
in 48.84, Terry Perry next at
49.01, and James Freeman third
at 49.70.
ECU'S relay teams started
the day off with a dropped baton
in the 440, but turned in a better
performance in the mile relay.
ECU'S uncontested mile re-
lay team (Moss, Perry, Free-
man, Franklin) ran the distance
in 319.1, with alternate relay
squads 2nd and 3rd.
In the high hurdles, Bobby
Phillips(ECU) took the 120 yard
event in 14.92.
ECU took 2nd and 3rd in the
220, then came back to win the
100.
Carter Suggs took the 100 yd
dash in 9.54, followed by
teammate Alston at 9.58 to grab
the first two places.
ECU swept all three places
in the triple jump. Herman
Mclntyre easily took the win
with a flight of 49'11 with
teammate Mike Hodge grub-
bing second with 47-1 W, and
George Jackson taking a close
third (47'1").
A surprise showing of stren-
gth in the distance events by
ECU kept the score close,
although Baptist had the Easter
men of the day. Lenny Phelps
ran in his first mile race since
high school to press Baptist's
Wradwell all the way to the
tape. Wradwell won in 4:15,
with Phelps finishing less than a
second behind with a career
best time. Jim Willett moved up
from the 880 to also run the
mile, but was slowed with a
throat infection.
The final event of the day
was the three mile run, in which
Baptist again took the win.
ECU'sJim Dill led the race from
the 6th lap over Baptist's
Mwobobia as the two pulled
well away from the rest of the
field.
At the gun lap Mwobobia
took the lead for good and
pulled away to take the event in
14:32, followed by Dill in 14:40
(career best). Lenny Phelps
came back from his earlier mile
to finish 5th for ECU.
Although the team still has
rough edges, their first home
meet showed individual stren-
gth. Some improved considera-
bly, while others maintained
fast performances.
The sprinters put on a good
show as usual, but it oould have
been even better-three of the
fastest men were absent.
Marvin Rankins, Larry Aus-
tin, and Otis Melvin were with
coach Bill Carson in preparation
for the National Indoor Champ-
ionships at Detroit.
Melvin and Austin both
qualified for the 60 yard dash
while Rankins qualified for the
60 yard high hurdles. (Melvin
was subsequently injured and
will not compete). Rankins has
run the hurdles in 7.2 seconds,
� with Austin docking a 6 second
performance last year.
Avoiding injuries, East
Carolina'steam should definite-
ly improve this year.
East Carolina will host ten
other teams next weekend at the
ECU Invitational Meet. Both
men's and women's teams will
begin competition early Satur-
day.
Coach Frye hopes this week-
end' s meet was a good tuneup
for the team and was content
with the win over Baptist.

Young but talented
15 March 1977 FOUNTAINHEAD Page 11
Carson ranks team one of his best
By JEFF BROOKS
Asst. Sports Editor
From the moment the man
begins to talk, he is impressive.
His presence as he speaks, the
manner in which he weighs
what he plans to say, and
finally, his actual words; ail
these lend to the imposing air
which surrounds him. Yet Bill
Carson is ppproachable.
In twelve years that he has
been coaching track, Carson has
seen a number of good teams,
including his 1965 Southern
Conference championship Fur-
man team and his 1976 Champ-
ionship East Carolina squad.
To him, though, his current
team ranks as one of the best.
Composed mostly of freshmen
and sophomores, the emphasis
might seem to be on rebuilding.
But with young talent providing
ne basis and returning veterans
providing stability and maturity,
the East Carolina team has
turned the future into the
present.
Carson himself expressed
his opinion on the strength and
talent of the Pirates: "I don't
think there are fifteen, twenty
teams in the entire United
States'it we can't take or that
are any better than us talent-
wise
Coach Carson seems happy
about his talent; "We've got so
many people ranked in the top
twenty, top thirty in their event,

Tennis heads to the top
By JEFF BROOKS
Assistant Sports Editor
One of East Carolina's most
beleaguered sports in the past
has been tennis. Pirate tennis
teams have not done well, but in
keeping with the strength cur-
rently exhibited by ECU'S
spring sports teams, the tennis
program has come into its own.
Now 2-1, the Pirates face the
'remainder of their demanding
19 match schedule with an
amazingly well-balanced blend
of junior and senior experience
and freshman enthusiasm. Led
by head coach Randy Randolph
and assistant Rich Friedl, the
Pirates look to be one of the
most improved teams in the
Southern Conference.
Headlining the team at the
number one singles spot is
junior Tom Durfee, from Tole-
do, Ohio. Durfee, who was
named "most improved player"
in 1976, has played number one
for the Pirates the past three
years. Quick and strong, Durfee
is an excellent athlete with an
excellent attitude.
Senior Jim Ratliffe of High
Point is currently number two
in singles. His consistent
baseline game is greatly en-
hanced by his hard, twisting
serve. Coach Randolph said
Ratliffe "has really improved
over last year. He's left-handed
and has one of the best
forehands i've seen
Consistent Doug Getsinger
is a very steady player from
Gddsboro. He is constantly
counted on for a good match.
Versatile, he is able to play a'l
types of games; either baseline
or serve and volley. He plays
number three singles while
being matched with Tom Durfee
at number one doubles.
Playing number four singles
and number three doubles with
Jim Ratliffe is Mitch Pergerson,
a senior from Roxboro, The
"Most Valuable Player" for the
Pirates in 1976, he is one of the
current crop of Pirates who can
play a steady and consistent
baseline game. Very competi-
tive, he has come back from bad
situations to clinch crucial wins
for the Pirates.
Coach Randolph describes
his number five player, Henry
Hostettler as "doing all his
talking with his racket Hostet-
tler was a walk-on last fall, and
has beaten everyone on the
team at least once in challenge
matches. Another player capa-
ble of playing the steady game,
Hostettler has unbelievably
quick reflexes and can hit
almost anything back.
One of the hardest workers
on the team is the number six
singles player, Kenny Love. He
teams up with fellow freshman
Hostettler to form the number
two doubles team. His competi-
tiveness can be seen in his style
of play and his actions on court.
Injured against High Point, he
wouldn't give up and almost had
to be dragged off the court.
From Winston-Salem, he is vital
to the team as a spark-plug.
Robert Molten holds down
the number seven position. A
freshman from Gastonia he will
be counted on heavily for
leadership of the Pirates in the
future.
Number eight Mike Murrad
is a freshman who is recovering
from a serious illness. Sidelined
during fall practice, he is
coming back with determination
and patience. His attitude, like
all of the Pirates, is "just
super
Freshman Thomas Lipe is
the team's manager. From
Albermarle he has been indis-
pensable to the team. As Coach
Randolph related, "We just
couldn't have a team without
Tommy
Running throughout the
coach's comments were the
words consistency and attitude.
When asked about that, he gave
this reply: "Well, one a two
people with bad attitudes can
hurt the team, it can rub off.
Half of a player's game is his
attitude; he can't win with a bad
one. Consistency can be affec-
ted by a bad attitude; and
consistency is so important. As
an individual sport, tennis can
be repetitive; it is essential that
a player be able to consistently
hit the ball down the line, or to
consistently hit his first serve
in
Coaches Randolph and Fri-
edl relate well to the blended
team they assembled; this will
be an additional factor in the
season ahead. With impressive
victories over Salisbury State
and Campbell tucked away, the
Pirates are looking no further
ahead than Southern Confer-
ence for William and Mary
Wednesday. It should te an
interesting match for the visi-
tors from East Carolina. It could
be the start of something great;
tennis at East Carolina.
Football practice
begins, look for
winning season
Spring football practice will
open at ECU Thursday, as
Coach Pat Dye begins prepar-
ations for his fourth season with
the Pirates. Over the previous
three years, Dye has fielded
teams with records of 7-4, 8-3
and 9-2, winning the Southern
Conference Championship last
year.
The coaching staff has four
areas of major concentration
during spring drills, each con-
sidered to be a question mark
fa 1977.
"Our top priority has to be in
the secondary said Dye. "We
must find three players that can
be winners to replace the three
graduated seniors.
"Second, we must have one
or two quarterbacks to step
forward. I'm confident in the
ability of our players at the
position, but someone must step
up and do the job
Leading candidates for
quarterback are Jimmy Souther-
land, Leander Green and Steve
Greer. Other possible candi-
dates are Joe Powell and Tony
Tripp.
"In the offensive line, we
have to find a replacement at
center, left guard, left tackle
and tight end continued Dye.
Overall depth at all positions
will also be an area of concen-
tration during the spring drills.
The final two weekends of
spring drills will feature scrim-
mage games in Ficklen
Stadium. On Saturday, April 2,
an Alumni Game will be held,
pitting the 1977 team against
various members of previous
teams at East Carolina. On
Friday, April 8, the annual
Purple-Gold Game will be held.
