fund drive close

$1,034,000 have been raised in
the Ficklen Stadium fund drive,
according to Tom Willis.
Willis said that a substantial
amount of cash has been collec-
"Most funds have come from
alumni said Willis.
According to Willis, the fund
drive has received contributions
from out of state, mostly from the
area of Washington, D.C. and
That's where the out of state
alumni are concentrated said
Willis said that loyalty to the
university plays an important role
in raising funrts.
"LXI has not been famous
for large alumni contributions,
mainly because we were a
teachers college and teachers just
don't make very much. We don't
have any millionaires like Caro-
lina or Duke said Willis.
"The response from Green-
ville has been tremendous. The
people want to help, all you have
to do is ask said Tim Brinn,
state director for the fund drive.
Willis said that Dr. Ray
Minges, a retired Greenville
surgeon and long-time ECU
benefactor, has spent untold
hours on the fund raising project.
According to Willis, more
involvement by students would
help the fund raising drive.

Hostel bill should pass
When it comes to vacations, the U.S. experience
is for those with plenty of money. In Europe, Canada
and many other countries of the world, young
travelers can take advantage of low-cost accommoda-
tions called hostels. But because the American Youth
Hostel program has been overly neglected by the
government in Washington, young travelers fa the
most part must be prepared to either utilize motels
which are usually expensive or restrict themselves to
camping while traveling around Uncle Sam's land.
Congressman Richard Nolan D-Minn however,
is attempting to bring government support to
hosteling in the States. He recently introduced H.B.
3736 which asks Congress to appropriate $3 million a
year fa three years to assist non-profit aganizatiois
that want to aeate hostels from already existing
structures. The passage of this bill could bring
hostels to many scenic parts of the country where
youth hosteling is virtually unkown, the South, fa
Hosteling provides young people, including
college students, an oppatunity to spend time in an
area of the country they wish to visit fa little cost.
Hostels provide beds and cooking facilities and are
housed in a variety of structures. In Europe, some
hostels are located inmedieval castles.
The youth hostel idea was first conceived of in
1909, by Richard Schirrmann, an elementary school
teacher in Germany, who eventually founded the
movement. Shirrmann wanted toestablish shelters in
the countryside where school children could stay
while on hiking trips. The idea spread, people sent
money and furniture and offered their homes and
barns, free of charge, to be used as youth hostels. By
1912, there were 17 hostels in Germany.
The hosteling movement has been impated to
countries throughout the wald, from Japan to
Yugoslavia. In the U.S however, the program has
not received subsidies from the government which
would allow it to expand to all parts of the country.
Presently, most hostels are clustered in the New
But if the Nolan bill is passed, concerned
aganizatiois will have a chance to aid the expansion
of youth hosteling in the U.S. Instead of wasting
countless summers and vacations in idle boredon,
young people could have an oppatunity to explae
our nation, its cities and countryside, while staying
overnight at low cost where they would meet a;�er
travelers from all over the wald.
Write your representatives in Congress and ask
them to support this bill.

job in handling this year's SGA
election. As the representative for
Neil Sessoms and Reed Warren
during the counting and recount-
ing of ballots, I observed only
complete fairness, openness, and
impartiality on the part of the
committee during all phases of
Because of the close vote in
this year's presidential race, I
strongly urge the SGA to adopt
some provision for a run-off in
future elections and assure that
the President, or any officer, be
elected by majority vote and not
by a razor thin margin. The
possibility of a tie vote came very
close to reality this time and had
the possibility become
a reality, there was no provision
for any sort of run-off election.
This situation should certainly be
corrected by next year. Another
change which should be conside-
red is SGA sponsored financing of
candidates for office. It is quite
apparent that the cost of organi-
zing and running an effective
campaign may indeed be preven-
ting some of our more qualified
students from seeking office.
Certainly, each candidate should
have the proper financing in order
to effectively relay his message to
the voters. The benefits gained
from such a system would certain-
ly outweigh the small cost of such
financing. From my dose obser-
vation of this year's campaign, I
believe these suggestions would
enhance the SGA electoral pro-

The new administration offers the
average student the greatest
opportunity for involvement in

for its openness with students,
candor on issues, and harmony in
student affairs. These new men
are willing to listen to you and

response and interest on the part
of the students combined with the
new awareness of the new
administration, there can be no
doubt that next year has the
Restaurant service disappointing
potential to be the best in East
Carolina history. Above all, this
election should demonstrate to us
al! that each vote counts. In
reality, a vote is nothing more
than a voice. Under the new
administration, your voice will
count. The change has begun in
making student government of
the students, by the students, and
for the students. As Neil and
Reed said in the campaign, it
certainly was time for a change!
Randy D. Doub
We would like to say that
we had a very disappointing
experience at Jason's Restaurant.
We entered the restaurant in
hopes of enjoying one of their
advertised specials not realizing
we were thirty minutes early, we
chose to drink coffee and wait
until time fa the special. One of
the managers we assume, inform-
ed us twenty minutes later that
we could not do this, but it was
our "lucky night" since the table
was not needed at the moment. It
might be noted that the restau-
rant was almost empty with
several unoccupied tables.
Asa thing of the past we have
always enjoyed Jason's and its
relaxed atmosphere. The feeling
of being able to sit there as long
as you wish has always been an
appreciated one. We suppose this
is a thing of the past. Why do they
offer specials except for the need
of students short on cash, which
we were? We really did not
appreciate the exchange of con-
versation about us which was
supposed to be private but was
overheard. We feel the restaurant
should feel "lucky" to have
students as customers since we
supply most of their business
instead of us feeling "lucky" to

for the new, the un-tried.

qualities in the ECU Playhouse

experimental theatre festival in

American Dance Festival in
Connecticut where I worked with
Anna Halprin, who runs the San

She spoke of the realization that
there is a dancer within us all.
She said man's basic means of
communication is dance; it is the
truest way to express ourselves.
"We were instructed on how
to put ourselves in trances so that
we can feel and be without having
to think. She believes we are all
meant to do this, to release
ourselves and express ourselves
openly and honestly as we are

about our feelings and actions
Biehn intends to continue this
kind of work and incorporate it
into his directing.

SU president looks back
at successes, problems
By MA RGA RE T PHOENIX
Barry Robinson, outgoing Stu-
dent Union president, feels that
the past year in the Student Union
has been very successful.
"We reached more students
than in the past, and attendance
was much better said the senior
Music Therapy major.
Robinson stated that almost
every oommittee had capacity
crowds, and the majority of them
had full houses.
"Films have been most suc-
cessful said Robinson. "They
picked good films that everyone
wanted to see
The sucoessof the oommittees
was attributed to three things.
I feel that there has been an
increase in the interest in cultural
activities, said Robinson.
"But, more important has
been the hard work and the
enthusiasm that oommittee mem-
bers have shown
Enthusiasm, Robinson stated,
almost became a problem when
he first entered the office.
"In the first 90 days of school,
the Student Union programmed
92 activities. This was just too
much, and things were toned
down after Christmas
Much of the over-program-
ming took place in Major Attrac-
"We had some problems with
Major Attractions, said Robinson.
"The students always didn't
like what was brought, but that is
because tastes today are so
Other problems Robinson sta-

attractions, the lack of a large
facility to use, and the location of
"In Chapel Hill or Durham,
you have surrounding areas that
oome in to see their concerts. We
don't have that in Greenville
Robinson passed on some
advioe to Dennis Ramsey, next
year's Student Union president.
"Major Attractions should
definitely avoid this over-
programming. They should try
one act, a big name group, and
see how it goes over. If the
students are not ready, just
Robinson also foresees better
communications between the
SGA and the Student Union.

happened, and we were therefore
unable to work with the SGA. I

something, even if it's just a nick-

According to Willis, the ex-

Special to FOUNTAINHEAD
FOUNTAINHEAD: When did you
begin writing songs?
FOUNTAINHEAD: Did you have
any early idols whom you tried to
Nicks: No, I was only affected by
the fact that I had gotten a guitar
and I had had what AI considered
to be a very sad 16 year old love
affair and I was so bummed that I
just sat down and wrote a little
song and that was it; the
be'nning.and I was off and
running and I just wrote constant-
ly after that.
FOUNTAINHEAD: Do you usual-
ly write on piano or guitar?
Nicks: Both, but I didn't; I wrote
only on guitar until about three
FOUNTAINHEAD: On most of
your BUCKINGHAM-NICKS al-
bum songs you seemed to write a
more commercial verse-chorus-
verse-chorus type song structure.
Was that a conscious effort to try
to get a commercial, money-
Nicks: No, jus! accident. Lindsey
Buckingham tends to think of
structure a little more because he
is into the Beach Boys and a lot of
people who really structure, I
don't. I don't have any training of
any kind and when I listen to
songs, I seldom think, well
there's a verse, there's a chorus,
there's a bridge. I just write and if
it has three verses and one chorus
and fifteen bridges; if I like it then
I don't change it. Which maybe
isn't right, but when I try to be
structured or I 'II go and listen to a
Dave Mason song and it has a
perfect this, this, this, then I can't
write, it's no fun for me.
FOUNTAINHEAD: I wrote when
I reviewed RUMORS that you
were concerned in songs like
"Dreams for example.in creat-
ing a mood rather than evoking an
image. Do you agree with that?
Nicks: "Dreams" is my favorite.
That song is a weird song. I wrote
the first verse of it during the
FLEETWOOD MAC album and
then I wrote the second verse and
the chorus during last week at
Sausalito which was the first two
months of trying to record
RUMOURS. So there is over a
year between the first verse and
the second verse and that was
when Lindsey and I were break-
ing up and I was not at all
thinking about anything except
what was happening. I was not
thinking about any kind of
structure, I just wanted the song
to be finished and say what I was
really feeling. I think that is the
first song that I have ever written
that actually had a chorus that
was different from the verses; an
actual thing that stood on its on
away from the verses.
FOUNTAINHEAD: Were you
shocked at the success of
"Rhiannon"? Did you believe in
that song more than "Crying In
the Night" for example?
Nicks: I always really loved
"Rhiannon I loved it when I
wrote it. I loved the name and I
love doing it on stage. I mean
that whole song is just one big
love trip between me and the
song, it always has been and it
still is. It was always very special
to me and I was really happy that
other people picked up on it
because sometimes you think -
Well if it could be so heavy for
me, how strange that it isn't
heavy for everybody else. I'm not
that different from everybody else
so why does it affect me and not
them? Rhiannon has proved to
always affect other people as
heavily as it affects me.
FOUNTAINHEAD: Tell me about
the word "crystal You use it in
your songs. "I see the crystal
visions" or "thecrystalline know-
ledge of you Does the word
have a special significance to
Nicks: I love crystal. I love crystal
glasses and crystal rings. I love
crystal and to me it's so delicate
and fragile when I say ' 'crystal-
line knowledge of youI just
meant that I have begun to realize
about whom I was talking was
so dear to me. It was like a piece
of crystal and if I say "here I go
again, I see the crystal visions
it just means that they are very
dear in my head. Then it says "I
keep them to myself" because
they are just too clear for
everybody else to handle so I
don't bother other people with
FOUNTAINHEAD: Were you
talking to any specific person in
"Crying in the Night?"
Nicks: No. 'Crying In the Night"
is a long time ago. It's one of the
few songs I ever wrote where I
had an imaginary character. This
lady, whom I imagined to look
sort of like Lesley Anne Warren, a
dancehall girl in 'Gunsmoke' days
or something and she was having
this trip with this guy who really
loved her and she just didn' t want
to be tied down but then when she
would be bummed out or insecure
she would find her way back to
him and he would always be there
because he was far out and sweet
and he'd always give her another
change. I just have a little kind of
movie thing about that whole
song which I don't ao very much.
Usually my songs are about some
FOUNTAINHEAD: What about
Raoes Are Run'?
Nicks Races A re Run' was about
the breakup of the band Lindsey
and I used to be in, FRITZ.
FOUNTAINHEAD: What about
Long Distance Winner'?
Nicks: "Long Distance Winner"
as about Lindsey. The whole
BUCKINGHAM-NICKS is very
personal. I don't even like to
listen to it sometimes, it's just too
intense. It takes me back to
Lindsey and me starving to death.
Both of us were singing just as
well on that album as we do now,
and we were writing just as
heavily but all of a sudden just
because you have a vehicle
everybody will give you a chance.
For three and a half years after

If so, then you oould be the
not-so-proud owner of what is fast
becoming America's most prolific
and least popular household pet -
the human louse.
Over the past decade the
number of estimated lice cases
has grown quietly but rapidly
from under a quarter-of-a-million
to over 312 million last year. And
Norcliff Thayer Inc distributors
of the leading anti-lice remedy
A-200 Pyrinate, are saying that
there oould be as many as 5
million lice victims in 1977.
Public health authorities are
not certain as to the exact causes
for the increase in the national
lioe problem. However, several
theories have been presented.
These include such things as
longer hair in the case of head
lice and, in the case of pubic lice,
such factors as communal living
among the young and increased
sexual permissiveness at all age
Up The Ladder
One thing is clear: lice are
moving up the social ladder. It is
no longer unusual for those
attending so-called fashionable
colleges or living in affluent
communities to oontract lice. In
fact, lice seem to thrive on the
conspiracy of embarrassed si-
lence that greets their arrival in
the smart set. This is because
most individuals mistakenly take
the presence of lice as an
indication of their life style -
associating it only with filth and
poor living conditions and
therefore avoid revealing the
problem until it spreads and
reaches epidemic proportions.
There are two types of lice
which commonly infest people in
the U.S head and pubic or aab
lice. The former are most often
associated with younger school
age children. Crab lice are most
commonly found among sexually-
active individuals between 18 and
What To Do When Crabs
If you do get aab lioe, do your
partner a favor and tell him or
her. Don't think that you can
quietly get rid of the problem by
treating yourself. On the other
hand, don't be embarrassed and
don't panic. Unlike VD, lice can
be treated simply and effectively
without a visit to the docta. Non-
presaiption remedies, such as
A-200 Pyrinate, are readily avail-
able in all drug stores. The
standard treatment consists of
shampooing the infested area
with the product which will kill
the lice and their eggs quickly.
However, it is a good idea to
retreat the infested area in 7-10
days to kill newly hatched

lice. Sometimes remaining eggs

Pubic lice are transmitted
primarily through sexual contact
although personal items such as
bedding and undergarments that
may have come into oontact with
an infested person can also be a
source of transmission. If you just
treat yourself, you may be
reinfested by your partner or your
own infested bedding and cloth-
ing. These items should be
laundered in very hot water, or
dry cleaned, as appropriate.
The pubic louse is called a
crab louse because under a
miaoscope it resembles a minia-
ture crab and is about as
tenacious. Their whitish eggs are
cemented to the hair shafts and
are not dislodged by normal
washing or combing. They are
prolific breeders and voracious
feeders on human blood which
accounts for the intense itching
that always signals their pre-
Head Lice Also A Problem
Although aab lioe are more
oommon among the 18-29 year
olds, you should also be aware of
head lioe which can affect all age
groups. The two are related and
characterized by intense itching,
but they differ in appearance and
primary method of transmission.
Head lice are spread easily by the
sharing of personal items such as
hats, combs and brushes. In the
last few years, outbreaks of head
lioe have foroed school closings in
many communities. They are
effectively treated by the same
cures that eliminate pubic lice.
While neither pubic nor head
lice transmit disease, severe
saatching and homemade reme-
dies may result in secondary
bacterial infections. Therefore, it
is most important that special
anti-lice shampoos, like A-200
Pyrinate, are used to treat the
The louse has been with
mankind through the ages, and
while it has received more curses
than praises, it has on occasion
moved one to inspired comment.
The renowned Scottish poet,
Robert Burns, had this to say in a
poem entitled To A Louse, On
Seeing One On a Lady's Bonnet
Ye ugly, creepan, blaster

The changes in the Pirate staff resulted when Wriqht Anderson
resigned his position to become an assistant ooach at the University of
Illinois. Anderson was in charge of the running backs during his three
years at East Carolina.
"I'm very happy to announce these two changes said Dye. "I'm
much more on hiring individuals than coaches, and in this case, I
think our staff is very fortunate to be gaining two super individuals
"Coach Hutcherson came here as a graduate assistant and has
dene a very fine job fa us. I think he' II do a great job with our running
backs. Greg Troupe worked with our defensive line last year and our
defensive scout team. He should find the move real simple. Again, I
think we are fortunate to have a graduate assistant capable of moving

Pirate pitching marvel
Britt- one freshman who contributes
In the world of oollegiate
athletics, freshmen are not oount-
ed upon heavily by their ooaches
to oontribute a great deal to the
team. Everyone knows they need
experience and time to properly
develop their talent before enter-
ing the big time.
For Mickey Britt, a,freshman
pitcher on the East Carolina
baseball team, this "rule" does
not apply. The Hope Mills, N.C.
native has appeared in four
games to date with the last three
being starting assignments. Over
his past three outings, Britt has
recorded three wins against no
defeats, three complete games
and one-hit shutout. His E.R.A. is
a sparkling 1.00 in 27 innings
One recent effort was the 8-0
one-hit shutout of VMI in a
Southern Conference rivalry.
Against the Keydets, Britt went
the distance and allowed but one
hit, that being a two out infield hit
in the top of the seventh inning.
College doubleheaders are only
seven innings in length, and this
was the two teams' first game of

no-hitter around the fourth
recalled the lanky freshman. "I
kept telling myself to keep the
ball down and not let them have
anything decent to hit. Coach

told me to relax and keep the ball
moving. When I got down to the
last batter in the seventh I really
thought I had it
But it was not meant to be.
The last man between Britt and
the gem played the role of the
spoiler. He chopped down on an
outside pitch and sent the ball
bouncing high over the pitchers
mound. Britt could not reach it,
and ECU second baseman Pete
Paradossi grabbed the bail bare-
handed and threw to first. The
play was dose, but the umpire's
decision was safe.
"There is no way he should
have gotten to that pitch at all
lamented the right hander. "It
was low and away and he just
barely got his bat on it at all. Even
so I thought he would be called
out. On a similar play in the
previous inning, our guy had a hit
taken away when he was called
out. I figured that was the way
that umpire called the dose ones.
"After I lost the no-hitter
Britt oontinued, "I concentrated
on getting the last man out. I was
The result was his fifth
strikeout of the oontest and a
one-hit shutout for his third
vidory of the young season.

modest about his early successes
at East Carolina. He says he is

"I felt sure I'd win this year
he admitted, "but I didn't think
that I'd be this consistent. I give
most of the credit to the eight
other guys behind me. They have
given me good support, and have
gotten me out of some tight
Britt also gave credit to his
catcher, Raymie Styons, who
himself is a freshman. Styons is
from Plymouth, N.C.
