U .N .votes equal no action
One of the major stumbling blocks in the United
Nations, its agencies and other international
organizations is too great of a reliance on the voting
system. Trusting political decision making to any
other system is anathema to the American
democratic tradition, but, as explained to the Model
United Nations by Dr. Harlan Cleveland Friday, the
newly independent nations involved in international
organizations are not accustomed to voting. The
more primitive the society the more likely it is that
decisions traditionally have been reached by
consensus rather than by majority vote.
Dr. Cleveland, who was foreign policy advisor to
Presidents Kennedy and Johnson, said that for the
Security Council to mimic parliamentary procedure'
means more talk and less action. In the Security
Council, as in other agencies of the U.N which can
be stalled by a single veto, it seems that debate
brings more disagreement over why something is to
be done than what is actually to be done. More voting
means less action.
Hard-core ideologies are at the center of the
Most delegations to the U.N. accept such
universal rights as freedom from starvation, disease
and the political domination of foreign powers. But,
there is wide disagreement over how to eliminate the
recognized problem, disagreement which translates
into split votes and inaction.
Dr. Cleveland's remedy to the problem was for
the U.N. to seek a consensus of ideologies as opposed
to the present system of determining whose is the
favorite political theory through voting.
The problem with consensus building is that the
final result is oftentimes displeasing to all parties
concerned. But in the long run, present and
especially future delegates to the United Nations
must ask themselves and the nations they represent
if it is better to win a propaganda battle in the U.N.
by gaining a majority of votes on the issue of, for
instance human rights, while losing the war to assure
freedom from political imprisonment throughout the
world. Or, s the propaganda more important?

Editorial on faculty survey off the mark
I strongly object to your
editorial of 17 March 1977
criticizing the survey conducted
by the Instructional Survey Com-
mittee which asked undergra-
duates to vote for the outstanding
teachers they had had during
Your headline "Popularity
Contest" certainly attracted
attention-at the expense of logic
and accuracy. Each student vot-
ing card stressed that the student
should vote on the basis of
teaching excellence, not teacher
popularity. If you believe that
students disregarded these in-
structions, then logically any
student survey�including the
"comprehensive survey" you
favor-would be subject to the
same charge.
If, however, you believe that
the survey was a popularity
contest because students voted
for the teachers who gave the
highest grades, let me reassure
you. By means of that "over-
weight calculator" you malign so
easily, the Committee was able to
discover that overall there are no
more than 2.25 of grade bias in
the student vote.
I make no apologies for the
Committee's use of the computer.
It made, without exaggeration,
millions of computations which
would have taken hundreds of
man-hours to complete. However,
to infer that the computer
"judged" the outstanding tea-
chers is totally incorrect. The
Committee weighed :he data-
including the average class size of
'ach teacher, the number of
different students he taught, the
number of classes he taught, and
his average grade-to determine
which teachers were statistically
comparable with the majority of
those teachers of undergraduates
on this campus.
Your desire for a "compre-
hensive survey" of teaching is
understandable. Our Committee
has, in fact, sought an acceptable
method for such a survey for
years. But we have regretfully
concluded that we cannot find
such a method because we cannot
define exactly what constitutes
excellence in teaching. Thus we
have been forced to rely on that
vague but real concept of excel-
lence which resides in the mind of
each of us. The Committee hopes
that that is the standard by which
each student voted.
Yours sincerely
Marie T. Farr
Chairperson, Instructional
Survey Committee of the
Faculty Senate
Mexican jail article appreciated
I am writing this letter as a
formal thank you to FOUNTAIN-
HEAD and to those staff mem-
bers who gave me their support in
the publication of the story
concerning Mexican prisons last
spring. Without your support,
and faith in my testimony, I
believe I would have given up my
quest to allow the world to know
of the injustices occurring in
Mexico, which would have left
other prisoners even more aban-
doned. As a direct result of the
article in your paper, oonoerned
persons wrote Robert Allen Smith
and gave him some hope, and the
knowledge that people care for
him. It possibly kept him alive.
I have finally completed a
book, which has been highly
accepted and lauded by most
skeptical critics at the publication
level. I won't mention the name.
This is not an advertisement.

not want to believe, and I have

nothing to your readers. I think of

killed on Christmas Day, of David
Johnston, who was taken down to
the office of the Obregon prison to
be interrogated and never return-
ed, or Barrita who died February
24, 1977 of gunshot wounds, or
Richard Kohout who was released
after three years without a trial,
and Brad Speare who has tuber-
culosis, or Dan Munoz who
remains in prison two months

ECU senior back
from NASA
31 March 1977 FOUNTAINHEAD
Bill Hammond, ECU senior
and foreign language major,
recently returned from NASA
headquarters where he worked as
a Cooperative Education student
in the Offioe of International
As a Co-op student, Ham-
mond alternated one quarter of
work with NASA and one quarter
of studies toward his degree here
at ECU.
At NASA, Hammond, who
speaks fluent German and some
French, worked with one of 24
divisions as a technical foreign
language person.
"I worked at the Offioe of
International Affairs. We deal
and negotiate with countries the
world over - especially Europe
Hammond said.
"ESA (European Space Ad-
ministration) is the European
equivalent to NASA. There is a
conglomeration of both ESA and
NASA he added.
Hammond said the main
duties of the Office of Inter-
national Affairs were to iron out
contract difficulties and to make
monetary decisions.
I was an aid to a professional
(Mr. John Sakks). I would assist
him by representing him in
meetings at state departments or
at ESA staff meetings when he
wasn't available Hammond
"NASA is very diverse in
9 9
activities. Lots of things done are
unrelated to putting a man on the
moon or to the space program
heoontinued. "They make meals
for the handicapped the way they
do fa astronauts and they make
fire-proof equipment
One of Hammond's most
rewarding work experiences was
his involvement with the state
department in aiding flood-
damaged Bangladesh.
"I went to the state depart-
ment fa the first time through
AID, a program which was
waking ai aiding Bangladesh
due to its recent flood damage.
We aided them with supplies and
finances. By satellite, we were
able to snap photos which showed
how many people were hurt and
what the extent of damage was to
the area he said.

Sweet problems
If you've walked down the low-cal aisle of the local grocery store
lately, you may have noticed a strange phenomenon; people of all sizes
madly filling their carts with all types of artificial sweeteners.
In all likelihood, these wild-eyed folks are, like me, dieters, who
depend on saccharin as a means to achieve a better physique.
For more years than I can count, I've consumed diet soft drinks.
Morning after morning, I sweeten my coffee with Sweet-n-Low. Now.
thanks to some Canadian tests, the FDA (Foil Dieting Attempts?) has
deemed this glorious alternative to sugar dangerous.
Don't get me wrong. I am glad we have an agency that protects us
from harmful substanoes. But I have yet to meet someone who
consumes 800 soft drinks a day, which is the proportionate amount of
saccharin given the test rats.
I have no doubt that 800 Diet Dr. Peppers would harm the bladder.
8000 oz. of liquid would make my bladder explode!
The ultimate problem the government faoes with the upcoming
saccharin ban will be overloading of the oourt dockets, when hustlers
discover that dieters can be just as desperately addicted as any heroin
I can see it now; walking down a dark alley late at night to meet
some sleazy character who promises me 100 per oent pure saccharin
pills for ten dollars a bottle.
What s worse, I can also picture myself reduced to crawling in the
gutter, begging people for just one packet of Sweet-n-Low. Who would
think that you oould get addicted to a white powder that can't be
The FDA seems to think its their moral obligation to protect us from
ourselves in this matter; that we're incapable of deciding whether to
use artificial sweeteners and of regulating the amount we use.
Strange that they don't feel the same way about tobacco, isn't it?
Ad nittedly, I am a rather heavy smoker, much to my mother s dismay,
(not to mention my non-smoking friends). But even a smoker can't help
but laugh when they hear that the government doesn't ban cigarettes
for fear of denying us our personal freedom. Something's gotta give.
The contrast between the government's stands on tobacco and
saccharin might seem illogical until you look on the bottom of that
40-cent cigarette pack and note that 20 cents of it goes to taxes. Whose
Maybe the solution would be to heavily tax sweeteners. I know
plenty of dieters and diabetics who would gladly pay the tax for a little
sweetener in their day.

Capsule reviews of recent record splurge
A torrent of recents has been
loosed during the past several
months, and a plethora of mater-
ial now dots the musical land-
As the Biblical proverb and
the latter-day song put it, "For
everything there is a season
This is true in fiscal matters,
farming and record buying. The
season now is for buying. But
let's not forget the Roman maxim

the buyer beware
QUEEN "A Day at the Races"
(Elektra6E-101).This British glit-
ter group should claim its share of
a resurgent rook market with a
primo release, which should pick
up a lot of new followers fa them.
It may mark the big commercial
breakthrough on the heels of their
strong first album.
Not only is Queen able to fuse
that dry British satirical wit into
their work, but they also know
when to take themselves seriously
and when not to. Humor and
parody are ingredients in a
collection of songs that run far
afield of the old standby love-
song formula. "You Take My
Beath Away" is a good try at
campy, barbershop love-song
Another tricky hit is to include
a number of introductions which
almost stand alone and have little
to do with the song itself. This is
not pushed to the point of
distraction but is used most
effectively. Lyrics are intelligent
and quotable.
"Somebody to Love" is al-
ready surging up the charts and
features good gospel choir har-
monizing. "Drowse" is an offbeat
piece about the trauma of middle
age and the feeling that life has
passed one by. I found "White
Man suggestive of the innocent
noble savage image in looking at
the plight of the American Indian,
to be a little strained. But in tota
this album is a fine effort. If you
are into this type of rock, Queen
would be a good way to start off
this year's record buying.
finished Business' (Fantasy F-
9518)�If, like most of the civilized
world, you're into disco you might
as well go with some of the better
practitioners of the sound. Form-
ed by Donald Byrd (he is not with
the group), founder of the School
of Jazz Studies at Howard Uni-
versity, the Blackbyrds are the
outgrowth of his efforts to give his
students practical experience.
From this nightclub circuit OJT,
the group went on to become one
of the premiere aggregations of
the past few years.
It is obvious at the outset that
disco is in the hands of highly-
trained, well-schooled performers
versed in R&B, jazz and other pop
mediums. A lot of disco is studio

packaged, ever-engineered tripe,
but the Blackbyrds give it variety
and style. Despite that locked-in
disco beat, the group interlaces
some interesting instrumentation
and effects around it. The cuts
have more of an improvisational
tone than most disco. The band is
instrument oriented; singing and
lyrics are not their strong -suit.
Occasionally the vocalizing
borders on the inane, the words
on some tunes coming periously
close to high school advanced-
composition levels. But let's face
it, nobody writing disco music
today is a frontrunner for a
Pulitizer Prize for poetry. Motion
is the medium here.
JOAN BAEZ "Gulf Winds"
(A&M SP-4603)-Sorry to relate
that songwriting cannot be added
to Joan's considerable talents as a
pure singer, folk balladeer, inter-
preter of songs and highly
competent guitarist.
This new offering, with all of
the songs on it authored by her,
gives ample proof of her short-
comings. " Diamonds and Ruse"
(her last album) held promise of
some good compositions to come,
but that promise seems to have
been a musical piecrust-made to
be broken. Her pitfall was in
tackling one of the most difficult
forms for any writer or poet or
songwriter, the highly personal-
ized autobiographical mode. The
failure is that the songs are solely
about her, they fail to touch that
universality which might make us
relate to them. I can't see much of
it will be relevant to anybody
else's situation.
Melodically, most of the tunes
are as even as Kansas and as
exciting as daytime television.
When the words fail to capture
and hold you, then the melodies
become more and more dronelike.
She did pen some noteworthy
lines, especially in the title tune,
but then she copped out and
threw some unpolished bit of
doggerel in to ruin it. I'm also
getting a tad tired of her Dylan
torch songs (the last album had
several songs about him and
numerous references to him). In
Joan's case, the voice is mightier
than the pen.
and Wald War II" (20th Century
2T522)-True Beatles believers
will flip out over this double
album featuring an ample serving
of Lennon and McCartney ever-
greens. The album is the original
sound track for the movie of the
same title. Backing actual news-
reel footage of the war, some 28
songs span a long and fertile
creative period of the Liverpool
lads. It demonstrates the versati-
lity and adaptability of the
Beatles music. Interpretations
and renditions of their songs are
done by such diverse performers
as Elton John, Rod Stewart,
Frankie Lane, Henry Gross, Tina
Turner and Leo Sayer. �ayer does
an inspired job on "Let It Be
and Stewart and ELO's Jeff
Lynne are exceptional on "Get
Back" and "With a Little Help
from My Friends respectively.
Purists will argue that the
Beatles are the best interpreters
of their own music, but I think
their memorable songs gain new
vibrance and vitality through such
cinematic and recording mar-

Pirates currently 9-6 overall, 2-0 in SC
Assistant Sports Editor
Coach Monte Little's Pirates
are a third of the way through the
current season and currently
sport a 9-6 overall record, inclu-
ding a 2-0 in the Southern
Conforence. After fifteen games,
the Pirates are making an assault
on several team records. If
current averages hold up, new
records could be set for most
stolen bases, and most RBI's.
The Pirates have stolen 38
bases in only 15 games, which
leave them only 19 shy of the
all-time team record of 57. With
26 games remaining on the
schedule, this record can be
easily shattered.
Jerry Carraway and Pete

Rankins always dreamed of being a hurdler
When East Carolina Univer-
sity's Marvin Rankins was in high
school, there was a hurdler at
North Carolina Central Univer-
sity named Charles Foster. Foster
was one of the top three hurdlers
in the world, and after Rankins
saw him one time, he knew what
he wanted to do.
"When I saw how easily he
went over the hurdles Rankins
said. "I knew I wanted to be a
In the past two weeks, Ran-
kinshasturned in times of 13.7 in
the 120 yard highs at the ECU
Invitational and 13.7 in the 110
meter highs at the Atlantic Coast
Relays in Raleigh. These are the
fastest times run by North
Carolina collegians since Foster
graduated from Central in 1974.
Rankins beat two nationally
ranked hurdlers from Seton Hall
in the ECU event, but lost a close
decision to Maryland's Greg
Robertson at the Atlantic Coast
Relays after coming out of the
starting blocks late.
"At the Invitational, I really
felt the pressure Rankins said.
"I was on my home track and I
had beaten (Lary) Bunting last
Rankins won, as he, Bunting
and Reggie Blackshear (Seton
Hall's hurdlers) all smashed the
previous Bunting Field record of
13.9. Bunting and Blackshear
were timed in 13.8.
Rankins said his high school,
Shelton Bond, tried tc get him to
run the hurdlers early in his
sophomore year, but he was not
so willing, until "I saw Foster in
Rankins said that his high
school conference (Northeastern
3-A) and Bertie track coach Bond
were the main factors in his quick
development as a hurdler.
"There were a lot of good
hurdlers in our league and Coach
Bond taught me the technique
he noted.
Rankins went to the state
championships as a sophomore,
but finished fourth to oonference
rival Jack Freeman of Northern
Nash, who won the race. Rankins
was favored to win the state title
his junior year, but Charlotte's
Tony Bouler edged him out.
Rankins came. back his senior
year to run away with the state
title before signing with East
Rankins, just a sophomore at
ECU, has already won three
conference championships in the
Southern Conference. He won the
indoor 60 yard highs title both
years and captured the 120 yard
high hurdles last spring outdoors.
Rankins had a best of 13.9 last
year, but has already gone 13.7
twioe this year.
Marvin Rankins wants to be
the hurdler Charles Foster was.
He wants to be world-class. That
is his goal and with the improve-
ment he has made over the past
year, he may just make it.
Pirates at ACC relays
- East Carolina traveled to
Raleigh Saturday and Sunday for
the Atlantic Coast Conference
Relays and several Pirates emer-
ged as meet standouts.
Marvin Rankins turned in a
13.7 time in the meet Saturday in
the 120 high hurdles, but was
beaten at the tape by Maryland's
Greg Robertson. Rankin'stime is
the fastest by a North Carolina
collegiate hurdler in three years.
George Jackson upped his
state-leading long jump distance
to 24' 3W Satuday at the meet
when he finished third. He was
beaten by two nationally ranked
jumpers from Maryland, but
defeated a third Maryland jumper
who has placed in the NCAA
Finally, East Carolina's 440
yard relay team qualified for the
NCAA championships Saturday,
when they ran a time of 40.8. The
quartet of Calvin Alston, Otis
Melvin, Larry Austin and Carter
Suggs overcame several bad
breaks with the baton exchanges
to turn in the time.
Herman Mclntyre, North
Carolina's top collegiate triple
jumper, has been beaten just
once in the past three months in
his speciality. Mclntyre jumped a
distance of 50 11 3V' Saturday to
take first place in the event.
