As a result of supply store expansion
ECU academic scholarships discontinued
By LOUIS TA YLOR
The ECU Academic Scholar-
ships have been discontinued,
apparently as a result of the
recent expansion of the ECU
student supply store, according to
Robert M. Boudreaux, financial
Funds normally earmarked for
these scholarships will be used to
help pay back a $400,000 loan
secured to finance the store's
expansion, according to C.G.
Moore, vice-chancellor for busi-
These four-year, $1,000 per
year scholarships have been
given annually to 12 to 15 high
school graduates who have de-
monstrated exceptional scholastic
Although the scholarships will
be discontinued beginning Fall
semester, 1977, past recipients
will not be affected, Boudreaux
"These recipients will be
automatically continued provided
their academic performances do
not fall below the accepted
level said Boudreaux.
"We feel this (cutback) is
tiiporary said Boudreaux.
"When a business expands its
facilities, you expect its profits
will also grow
N.C. law requires that all
student supply store profits above
operating costs go to scholar-
ships, according to Moore.
"In the past few years, this
total has been about $60,000
said Boudreaux. "For 1977-78
we're basing out projections on
$35,000 to $40,000.
National Merit Scholarships
and resources scholarships, also
supported by the unrestricted
funds will not be affected,
according to Boudreaux
"In fact, we feel that the
Merit scholarships will be up-
graded by the discontinuance of
the academic scholarships
The Merit Scholarships are
$500 to $1500 awards given for
academic excellence, while the
resources scholarships are given
to students in emergency situa-
tions, like student teaching, ac-
cording to Boudreaux. The latter
awards are usually about $50.
Boudreaux said the Student
Scholarship, Fellowship, and Fi-
nancial Aid Committee, reevalu-
ates the financial aid situation
annually. He added that rein-
statement wasa strong possibility
if the situation improved.
Supply store manager Joe
Clark attributed the expansion to
increased demand of certain
school supplies, a growing need
for warehouse space, and a need
for more shelf space.
"The art supplies department
will be increased three times, and
the trade book section will also be
greatly increased said Clark.
"The demand in these areas is
growing too fast to keep the
shelves stocked, and we just do
not have the warehouse space to
store these supplies.
"We moved into the present
facility in 1965 said Clark.
The plans were drawn up in
1961. Since that time, enrollment
and demand have grown tremen-
Clark said the supply store
never sold more than half the
books on the shelves at the
beginning of a term and that
warehouse space was also needed
needed for these books.
Since the supply store must
operate self-sufficiently, the cut-
backs in the scholarships were
necessary to fund the expansion,
"We don't get a penny from
th state of North Carolina fa-
salaries, utilities, equipment, or
expansion said Clark.
Besides the rent-free build-
ing, the store is completely free
from state funding, according to
According to Clark, the ex-
pansion will increase the sales
area to about 100,000 square feet,
about a 90 per cent increase.
In addition, there will now be
about 3,300 square feet of ware-

Different SGA constituency si
Concerning the editorial,
"Lost Constituency I only agree
with Mr. Elliott in that there has
to be a better method under
which the constituency of the
legislature can be determined.
Representation on the basis of
departments and schools seems
reasonable. It has advantages
over the present system. If we do
reconstruct the system, it would
be wise to consider all possible
flaws or objections in a new
system. Encouragement of stu-
dent input would mean more
ideas and fresh criticisms. This
lessens the chance that a bad
system will be replaced with a
The screenings for legislators
could be eliminated if a system
could be worked out where fall
elections would include an alter-
nate legislator (seoond highest
number of votes) in case the first
legislator became unable to
Those concerned might also
consider the district system which
I found, after a little research, is
used successfully at Chapel Hill.
ECU students may find a few ideas
that can be drawn from this
system and it is sure to widen our
range of ideas.
Concerning the "reasoning"
for reconstruction in the editorial,
I thought it was contradictory.
The legislators were trying to
represent the students. By up-
holding the recall petition they
were doing exactly as the stu-
dents wanted or the students
would not have petitioned for

such an action. If you do not
believe that 15 percent of the
student body is truly representa-
tive in such a case, take it up with
the SGA Constitution and spend
your efforts in a revision of the
Article of Recall.
It was also stated that legis-
lators "weed out" through
screening those who do not share
their established opinion. If you
believe this to be their intent, I
suggest that you have fallen
victim to "McCarthyism (Major
symptom: witch hunting.)
The majority of legislators try
to do their job, but they can
become lazy or careless (a very
human characteristic and not at
all related to witches or demons).
Under a better system of elections
which would bring students and
legislators closer together, our
officials can be kept on their toes.
E. Marena Wright
J.P. Stevens Textile Co. defended
Only one-fifth of the labor
foroe in the U.S. is organized into
unions. At J.P. Stevens, employ-
ees have rejected the TWUA in 11
of 12 elections held, preferring to
deal with the management direct-
ly because Union presenoe has
historically led to strife and dis-
cord over issues that can be set-
tled amicably when the relation-
ship is based on mutual respect.
The TWUA began a massive
campaign in 1963 as part of an
AFL-CIO drive to organize the
south. Its prime target has been
J.P. Stevens. Today, 14 years
later-after 40 organizing cam-
paigns and 15 requests for
secret-ballot electionsthe Union
has won only one Stevens elec-
tion, and that by a narrow
margin. If the Union is suppos-
edly so beneficial for workers,
why does it have such a record of
defeat? The Union's denuncia-
tions of Stevens are obvious
efforts to make this Company the
whipping boy for its general
failures, throughout the south.
Stevens has been seeking a
oontract covering plants in Roa-
noke Rapids, N.C where the
single victory occurred, with
union representatives. The Com-
pany has made repeated propo-
sals and oounter-proposals in the
negotiations, but to no avail.
The Union's charge that the
company has failed to bargain
fairly should be judged in the
context of its own bargaining
history: there have been 15 Labor
Board decisions against Stevens,
3 of which were overturned by the
court. On the other hand, there
have been at least 18 Labor Board
decisions against the Union.
By calling a boyoott of Ste-
vens' products, the Union leaders
are living up to what the oompany
has, through the years, told its
employees about them. They are
specifically proving that they will
readily sacrifice the interst of the
employees-and of anybody else
who may be affected-in order to
increase their own power.
Some studies blame low
wages on the lack of unionization
in some states. However, govern-
ment statistics show that indus-
tries with high degrees of union-
ization do not necessarily pay top
wages, nor does a low rate of
unionization necessarily mean
In each of the last 10 years,
wages at Stevens have increased
an average of 7. A representa-
tive Stevens production employee
earns $3.98 an hour, with Com-
pany funded fringe benefits that
can add another 25 to waqes.
Stevens' fringe benefits consti-
tute a comprehensive package
covering medical and life insur-
ance, pension plan, holidays,
tuition assistance, and time off for
personal needs such as family
funerals and jury duty. Stevens
Pension Plan is not only one of the
best in textiles, but competitive
with all Southern industry, as is
its group insurance package.
Stevens recognizes without
qualification that employees have
the undeniable right to be repre-
sented by a union. However, the
National Labor Relations Act
specifically states that employees
have as much right to oppose a
union as they have to join one,
and that likewise, the employer
has the right to express to
employees his opposition to the
unionization of employees and his
reasons for such opposition. Ever
since the Union's victory at
Roanoke Rapids, employee disen-
chantment has steadily mounted

Pranks could upset Uncle Sam
Jack "BluesHarp" Mason
I am writing you due to an
incident that occurred Monday
night. Pranks are pranks, but
destroying federal property is
another incident. On Monday
night, reported around 3O0 a.m
the Alpha Phi house was visited
by some guys, whether they were
fraternity guys or independents is
unknown. On Tuesday morning I
noticed that our mailbox's side
steel bolt had been jimmied off,
probably by a crowbar, and the
red flag was gone. Admittedly,
this was not a tragic theft, but the
tampering with the United States
mail is a felony and it does cause
inconvenience for the house as
well as the mailman. Pranksters
should think twice before pulling
such stupid, childish stunts. No
one thinks they are funny - only
terribly immature. Immaturity
seems to be evident in many
various groups of guys at ECU
because many incidents have
occurred at our house which were
terribly stupid and some quite
devastating to us. Please think
through these "fun" outings
before doing damage to one's
property. Your outings are not
"fun" to us.

Soccer Captain clarifies position
17 May 1977 FOUNTAINHEAD
There seems to be a few
misconceptions about what has or
has not been said regarding the
cancellation of the soccer pro-
gram. In last Thursday's edition,
Vicky Loose stated her opinion on
the matter. On the whole, the
article was well conceived but she
misses on a few points.
Fa one, I realize that Title IX
does not mention anywhere that
there has to be an equal number
of men's and women's sports. I
don't know which articles Miss
Loose has read but all the articles
I've read, including the one she
mentioned in the News and
Observer, do not insinuate an
equal number of teams. This
aspect, I realize, has no bearing
regarding Title IX. The equal
number of teams is the Athletic
Advisory Councirs choice.
For another, she mentioned
the point of equal funding. I also
realize that there can not be equal
funding of men's and women's
sports due to the nature of major
college football and basketball.
These sports are inherently more
expensive arid they also generate
most of the revenue for athletics.
Granted, at first, that was one
of the reasons given for the
cancellation of soccer. That was,
initially, one of the reasons given
to me by the administration. But
as I probed a little deeper, I found
this was not really the case. The
advisory council was concerned
about fielding a quality team with
the money we were receiving.
They obviously felt that we

considering that we live in the so

up in the church and tried to live a
"good Christian life" I never
really understood what it meant
to be a Christian. My definition of
a Christian was someone who
obeyed the 10 commandments,
went to church every Sunday and
tried to be a basically good
person. It was not until later that
someone explained to me that the
wad Christian means "Christ in
one" and you become a Christian
by simply asking Christ to come
in your heart by faith.
One day two guys came by
my room and shared with me how
I oould have a pasonal relation-
ship with Jesus. I was not the
most religious guy on campus but
I had seen how much they
enjoyed living and I knew that
this was something I wanted.

as I have developed my relation-
ship with Christ I have seen my
life change into a peaceful but

couldn't field a respectable team
with only $4,400 as our budget.
But I feel the Advisay Council is
wrong in their assumption.
Miss Loose also stated that

team taken the positon of blaming
football. All we want is fa the
Board of Trustees to reinstate the
program; not to cast blame.
Don't get me wrong, I am all
fa wanen's athletics, but na at
the sake of canceling an entire
program. We are all waking
toward the same goal; we just
want to participate in our respec-
tive sports. Surely this is possible
at a school of this size.

Cinema is both the easiest and the hardest form of the performing
arts. It isthe easiest because there is no limit to the effects that can be
obtained when one is able to stop, dl der and create to fit the need. It
has the greatest potential for revisio and there is not a sense of the
necessary metamorphosis a film goet hrouqh before completion. It is
this same colossal ability that makes it he most demanding of the arts.
With all of the freedom of sense that the director is allowed, if there is
anything less than a perfect creative interpretation of his intent, the
movie is a failure. There is no excuse, as there is in the continually
shifting dynamics of theatre.
If this insistence upon excellence seems harsh it may well be. There
isa great deal of work that goes into the cheapest "B" flick, and often
a sincerity of positive creation. There is a difference, however, between
intelligent creative suspension of reality and mere entertainment.
Effecting that difference is the essence of cinema.
That was the lead of the first Marquee column of the year. I still feel
it isessentiallyoorrect, but I would like to add one less poetic, but more
direct line to its content. To aspire to less, is to be a whore, and to
accept less is to pay her.
Films are more than mirror reflections of experience: more than
mere spectacle and surprise. Films can discover and display the
intimacies of character of our predicament.
We are the smartest beast on this planet, and we have nothing to
This reviewer refuses to admit that belief is necessary for effort and
achievement. One finds a vehicle for their artistic energies beyond the
necessary bureaucratic structure. If one chooses films, one must
aspire; if one chooses criticism, one must expect.
Criticism is the scab on the ass of great art. True and sincere
creation needs no applause or assurances. It assimilates beauty of a
similar caliber and stimulates imitation. To this imitation, criticism is
the only sounding board. Criticism informs the imitator that he is not
fooling the people he needs to deceive.
Criticism is the necessary floodgate fa rank commercialism and
egotism in art. There is a difference between what needs to be said,
(drawn, filmed, written) and what the artist needs to do. That is the
essence of inspiration.
Films and drama are far nrare impatant than the actas and
directas involved. They have inoaporated themselves into the walds
where artists like Ibsen, Miller and Bergman have dedicated their
lives. When treated as a mere business, inspiration becomes
monotony, and aeation degenerates into imitation. Enta the aitic.

things to say and take back, feelings to be repaired. I have na been a

New record prices on upswing
By ANNE HOGGE
Over the past few months
there has been a price increase on
a select group of albums.
This group now oosts $7.96
per album, at retail price, a one
dollar or more increase over most
There are various reasons
given as to the increase. Rolling
Stone cites some of them as
increased shipping and distribu-
tion oosts, the rising costs of
petroleum-related raw materials,
passing artists' contract costs on
to the customer, and retailer
"The increase was made by
the record companies in order to
keep up with rising costs. I
personally think that another
reason may be related to the
Carter administration. There has
been talk of a price freeze, so the
record companies wanted to
make one last increase before it
was enacted aocording to Tom
Perryman, manager of .Apple
"But so far the increase has
only been on albums by proven
artists, artists which the record
companies know will sell said
Perryman. "The increase is now
in the experimental stage. Every-
one will eventually test a top
artist at $7 98
Jerry Young of Record Bar
agrees. "The companies know
that they won't lose money
because they're dealing with their
big names. The whole thing is
called a 'selective price in-
crease said Young.

"Companies have always
wanted to equalize album and

tracks than cassettes because
most cassette buyers record their

Since the increase, Perryman
has seen eight track sales drop
and cassette sales rise.

types of music, mainly rock.
"The increase will affect all
types of music. Flock albums are
already on the way up, and
country, classical, and sound-
tracks will soon follow accord-

Both Perryman and Young
(LNS)-A three-judge federal
court in Boise, Idaho, delivered a
critical blow recently to the
federal Occupational Safety and
Health Act (OSHA) by declaring a
key enforcement provision of the
The oourt ruled that OSHA
safety inspections of workplaces
without a search warrant based
on probable cause constitute a
violation of the Fourth Amend-
The ruling in the case,
brought by a contractor in
Pocatello, Idaho, is one of the first
constitutional challenges to
OSHA that has been upheld in the
lower oourts and would appear to
bar all inspections under the Act.
OSHA has obtained a temporary
order from Supreme Court Justice
William Rehnquist allowing con-
tinued inspections pending a
direct appeal to the U.S. Supreme
said that the increase has not
noticeably affected sales. But
according to Perryman, the public
is now becoming more selective
about what they buy.
"There will also be less
experimentation of artists by the
puL.c as long as prices are
high said Young.
Both stores place new albums
on sale within a few weeks of their
release in order to offset the
Since Apple, formerly Rock
N' Soul, has recently undergone a
name change, new practices have
been enacted to save the custom-
"We now place the Top 100
albums on sale for about one
dollar off the regular price said
Perryman. "We also rent albums
overnight in order to give the
customer who records their own
tapes the chance to record
without having to buy the album
at full price.
"All albums, at $7.98 or
below, naturally sell better if
they're on sale. Often, if an
album is doing well while on sale
but hits a slump when it goes
back to the regular price, I'll put
it back on sale
Neither Apple, nor Record
Bar sell albums for the suggested
list price. Both offer a discount of
There has been no apparent
local protest to the increase.
"While I couldn't boycott my
own store, I urged customers not
to buy the new Queen album
when it was released said
Young. "It didn't do any good
Perryman expected some pro-
test to the price-hike, but little
"I hope the public isn't so
apathetic that the rise doesn't
bother them he said. "Before
the increase, a customer would
ask when a record would be on
sale but buy it anyhow. Now when
they ask, they're serious, they'll
wait. They're more money con-
"But it's too late to protest.
The record companies have al-
ready gotten the idea of $7.96

statewide protest, with other
states joining us, to get any

gotten enough static about this

they improved their quality
said Young. "Mainly, though, it's
a personal value judgment
Perryman agreed on poor
"Albums today aren't worth
what you pay for them he said.
"Albums printed in the U.S.
don't have the same sound
quality as an import. I think
import sales might increase if the
record prices do. Since imports
have a better quality, and are now
in the same price range, why not
buy an import?'
If the increase is here to stay,
what can be done about it?
"Ideologically you can beat
the increase by boycott, but
realistically you can't said
Young. "The only solution I can

Pete Conaty Athlete-of-the-Year
By STEVE WHEELER
Editor's note: This is the last
issue of FOUNTAINHEA D for the
1976-77 school year and it's time
for the athlete-of-the-year to be
announced. Out of 52 nominees
for the honor, Pete Conaty, a
two-sport star, was voted the
winner by a fairly large margin
over second place Debbie Free-
man, co-winner of last year's
It's not often that a college
athlete decides to play in two
different sports in the same
school year. And it's even more
unusual for an athlete to excel in
two different sports in one year.
But Pete Conaty did just that.
The 175-pound senior from
Annandale, Va. led the Southern
Conference in football in scoring
and field goals and was one of the
ace pitchers on the Southern
Conference champion East
Carolina baseball team.
Conaty's 86 point1: were the
best in the Southern Conference
in football last season and the
fifth best single season total in
the school's history. He is the
first kicker ever to lead East
Carolina in scoring.
The second string quarterback
on the team, Conaty finished 15th
in the nation in scoring and in the
field goals. He hit on his first ten
field goal attempts and was just
one away from tying the NCAA
mark of 11 in a row when he
missed against Southern Illinois
in the Pirates' fifth game of the
season. Conaty was the nation's
leading kick scorer for much of
the season, but finished second to
Pitt's Carson Long.
In baseball, Conaty ended up
the regular season with an 8-2
record, winning his last seven
decisions. He is considered one of
the top two pitchers on the East
Carolina team, along with fresh-
man Mickey Britt, who finished
with a 9-0 mark.
Conaty led the team with 77

strikeouts on the season, as well
as innings pitched with 82 and
two-thirds. His last victory was a
hard-earned 2-1 victory over The
Citadel in the first game of the
doubleheader that gave the
Pirates the league title. He was
pitching against Richard Weiters,
considered the toughest pitcher in
the Southern Conference.
Conaty is in strong contention
for the Southern Conference
Athlete-of-the-Year award that
will be named in the coming
Debbie Freeman, one of the
most versatile athletes at East
Carolina, took second place be-
hind Conaty. Freeman, Co-
Athlete-of-the-Year last year, was
a three-sport star for the Lady
Pirates this year.
A 5-8 forward in basketball,
Freeman led the state in scoring
with over 22 points per game and
in rebounding with over 13 per
contest. She did all that even
though the Lady Pirates suffered
through a 6-16 campaign. She
led ECU in scoring in 15 of the 22
games played and in rebounding
in 17 games.
Freeman was also on the Lady
Pirates' track team, where she
broke three school records. In the
recent ECU Women's Open Track
Meet, Freeman threw the discus
129 feet to break her old varsity
mark by over ten feet. Her throw
was just six feet off the national
qualifying standard. She also
heaved the shot 38-6 to set
another school record. Her other
record came in the javelin.
During the fall season, Free-
man was one of the top spikerson
the Lady Pirates' volleyball team.
Placing third in the balloting
was Calvin Alston, star of the
outdoor track team.
Alston, a 5-7 sprinter on the
team, qualified for the NCAA
Championships in three events
and is expected to qualify in
one more before the champion-
ships start next month.
The native of Henderson,
N.C. has qualified for the nation-
als in the 200 and 400 meters
events and the 400 meter relay.
The Pirates' mile relay team is
expected to qualify in the next
week and Alston will be a part of
Alston has knocked the 200
record down to 20.8 this season
while timing out in 46.6 in the 400
meter event. He leads off both
relay events, and has been timed
in 10.1 leading off the 400 meter
relay when they clocked 40.2
earlier this year.
All-America defensive end on
the Pirates' football team, Cary
Godette, finished fourth in the
voting fa Athlete-of-the-Year.
The senior from Havelock,
N.C. achieved all-America honors
in two publications this season
after making honorable mention
as a junior.
Godette, even though slowed
much of his career by a knee
injury, garnered all-Southern
Conference honors three times
and was named male athlete-of-
the-year by the Greenville Sports
Club this spring.
His play fa the last four years
at defensive end has been in-
valuable fa the Pirates.
Wrestling standout Phil
Mueller took fifth in the balloting
by virtue of his fine senia seasai
that saw him go 28-2.
Mueller, a native of Eden,
N.C, did not lose a dual match
during his junior and senior
seasons at East Carolina after
transferring from Wisconsin-
Stevens Point. He won Nath
Carolina Collegiate Champion-
ships and Southern Conference
Championships at 167 pounds
during both years and was named
the MVP of this year's meet. In
that meet, he pinned all three of
his opponents, winning in the
finals in 38 seoonds.
Ted Nieman of the ECU swim
team took sixth place in the
voting. The freshman star from
Winter Park, Fla. broke four
varsity reoads during his first
season here, as well as five fresh
marks. He was named
FOUNTAINHEADs MVP for
Nieman's records came in the

Little tabbed Coach-of-the- Year
By STEVE WHEELER
Monte Little, in his first year
as ooach of the ECU baseball
team, was named FOUNTAIN-
HEAD'sCoach-of-the-Year by his
peers, the coaches, and the
writers of FOUNTAINHEAD and
the Sports Information Office in
voting last week.
Uttle won bv a falrlv onmfnrt-
able margin over Bill Carson,
ooach of the Southern Conference
champion indoor and outdoor
track teams. Football coach, Pat
Dye, finished third in the ballot-
ing while Ray Scharf of the men's
swim team took fourth.
Little inherited a baseball
team that had lost 13 lettermen
off a 22-7 team and molded them
into a oohesive unit that won 15 of
16 Southern Conference encount-
ers and 30 of 40 overall. The
Pirates won the xnference title
by one game over Western

foe to down the Pirates, kept the
pressure on the young Pirates

Pirates had to sweep a double-
header against The Citadel in the
last regular season games to win
the title outright. The Citadel was
tied with Western Carolina, one
game back of the Pirates, going

around the hitter's knees.
Paul Osman, another wrest-
ler, finished eighth in the ballot-
ing. Osman, a native of McLean,
Va ran off a string of 24 matches
without a loss before bowing out
in the NCAA Championships. His
only blemish during that period
was a tie against national place
winner Bob Sloand of Lehigh.
Osman did not lose a dual
match during the season and won
two tournaments, the Wilkes
Open and Southern Conference.
The Wilkes Open is the most
prestigious tournament in the
nation except the nationals.
Quarterback Mike Weaver, of
the football team, finished ninth
in the voting. Weaver led the
team in total offense with 1124
yards and in passing with 633
A 6-3 senior from Williams-
ton, Weaver was honorable
mention all-conference and was
the Chevrolet Offense Player-of-
the-Game for his performance
against Appalachian State on

offense in the oontest that de-
cided the Southern Conference

star, rounds the FOUNTAIN-

named all-state in basketball for
the Lady Pirates, averaging 17.4
points per game, despite playing
point guard. She was also named
by FOUNTAINHEAD as MVP in

congratulate the Pirates' five
Southern Conference Champions

team, men's indoor track team,

sports made it possible for East
Carolina to win the Commission-

year, the award won by the team
with the best overall athletic
program in the Southern Con-
and 3-2, to win the title.

won every swim title since they
