SS store nears
By CINDY BROOME
The renovation of the Student
Supply Store should be completed
sometime near the first of Au-
gust, according to Curtis May,
Student Supply Store assistant
"We're shooting for some-
time around the first of August,
not necessarily August 1 said
"The total project is not
behind, but some minor details
The supply store, temporarily
moved, will be expanded to
include the old snack bar area,
and part of the hallway leading to
the store entrance.
The extra space will be used to
display items that the store had
no room for previously.
"We were just so cramped
"Now we'll have more space
to put books We'll have more
shelf spaoe to put what we have
May said that during the
end-of-the-quarter book rush, it
was hard to keep the shelves
stocked with books, even though
supply store employes continu-
ously stocked them.
May said sometimes it ap-
peared that they were out of
certain books, when there were
actually many more in the stock-
The supply store will be able
to display perhaps 200 books of a
kind instead of 50, as has been
the case in the past, according to

general area as it was previously,

The area the temporary sup-
ply store is now occupying will be
a snack bar, said May.
The snack bar will be set up
like the Croatan.
"The money that has been
approved right now is $400,000
The $400,000 has been allo-
cated to the completion of the
supply store and part of the snack
bar, according to May.
"We do not know what the
remainder of the cost of the snack
bar will be said May.

have their checks okayed there
There will be two entrances
from the lobby, said May.
Students can enter the snack
bar like they enter the temporary
supply store now.
A hallway will lead straight to
the entrance of the supply store.
A short hallway will oonnect
the snack bar to the supply store

one to the other easily, said May.

has plans to start a program
leading to Masters of Science in
nursing in the fall of 1977.
This program will prepare
teachers of nursing in medical
and surgical nursing, psychiatric
mental health nursing, and
maternal child health.
Later graduate programs in
other areas of nursing, i.e.
supervision and administration,
are expected to be added.
It is hoped that the family
nurse practitioner program, which
is presently offered as a oertifi-
of the graduate program.
The unique feature of the
program is its philosophy that
faculty of a practice discipline
need to possess high level
practive skills in the clinical area
of their specialization.
The program aims at updating
the practice skills, providing
indepth study of clinical areas and
full understanding of trends and
role changes which are quickly
Theory and research are em-
phasized and integrated through-
An R.N. with a degree in a
non-nursing discipline will be
admitted by supplementing cer-
tain requirements for B.S. level
Also, candidates with a B.S. in
nursing and a masters in another
discipline can take a second
masters in nursing in a shorter
span of time.
Candidates who wish to only
attend summer school can do so
through prior planning with the
faculty and complete the program
through three summer offerings.
PTA announces probationary time for TV
By BILL HARRINGTON
The National PTA has an-
nounced a six month probationary
period for the national networks
starting July 1 to curb what they
consider the excessive and harm-
ful amount of violence portrayed
In an April 15 news release
the PTA calls fa "less TV gore

The PTA claims that violence
on TV makes "many children
more aggressive in their behav-
By January 1, 1978 if there is
no "substantial response by the
networks" the PTA will oonsider
"boyootts of advertisers, pro-
grams, and local stations" along
with "selected test cases of
petition to deny lioensing, and
civil litigation acoording to the
April 15 news release.
Social and organizational
psychologist Dr. William F.
Grossnickle said that charges
such as these have not yet been
proven in scientific research.
According to Grossnickle,
these conclusions may have some
basis in fact but are premature at

"The lab studies and field
studies are mixed in their find-
ings he said.
The PTA has concluded that
TV violence can encourage sev-
eral forms of aberrant social
behavior. They list several exam-
ples in their April 15 news
"Some young people will be
incited to commit violent acts in
direct imitation of similar behav-
ior seen on TV according to the
"Among youth and adults,
there is a growing callousness
and indifference to violence and
the suffering it causes.
"Perceptions by children and
youth of real life problem solving
methods are distorted by TV,
which portrays violence as a sure
and easy way to solve all
"Youth and adults who regu-
larly view TV violence are becom-

occurring in real life.
"Continual exposure to televi-
sion's parade of murder, rape,
arson, assault, and other violence
to persons and property dimin-
ishes the quality of life for both

Dr. Grossnickle finds any
definitive conclusions at this time
premature without further study.
"These are very complex
issues and people want very
simplistic answers he said.

Reports on Burger Court
15 June 1977 FOUNTAINHEAD Page 3
Professor addresses meeting
By JOYCE EVANS
Dr. Tinsley E. Yarbrough,
ECU political science professor,
addressed a Chicago gathering of
political scientists late April on
the Burger Court.
Dr. Yarbrough's presentation,
"The Burger Court and Unspeci-
fied Rights was given at the
annual meeting of the Midwest
Political Science Association.
The presentation focused on
the Burger Court as a whole. But
Dr. Yarbrough also discussed the
differences in the Burger and the
Court of Chief Justice Earl
Warren, previous chief justice.
A recent survey conducted by
U.S. News and World Report
suggests that the bench and bar
are happy with the new trends cm
the Supreme Court, according to
The survey of lower oourt
judges, state supreme court
justices, and eminent attorneys
revealed that 98.6 per cent of the
respondents believe that the
Burger Court is more conserva-
tive than the Warren Court.
A majority of those surveyed
approved of the Burger Court's
decisions in all areas but ob-
scenity and pornography.
Even if I did not subscribe to
the notion that the government
has no power to suppress books
and films, I could not support the
Burger Court's approach in the
obscenity field, just as I did not
support that of the Warren
Court said Yarbrough.
The Warren Court never had a
majority opinion on what consti-
tutes obscenity and never clearly
defined obscenity, according to
"The simple fact is that what
is obscene varies with the indivi-
dual perception, and it is impos-
sible to establish clear definitions
of obscenity which would not
unduly stifle expression he
But the Burger Court has
advanced the remarkable notion
that obscenity standards under
our nation'sone Constitution may
vary from community to com-
munity in the United States, he
Dr. Yarbrough is a,specialist
in constitutional liberties and the
Supreme Court. His studies have
focused on Justices Hugo L. Black
and William O. Douglas as well as
the Burger Court as a whole.

Ficklen expands as
While funds for the expansion of Ficklen stadium
are continuing to pour in and seven-foot centers are
being signed on for the ECU basketball team,
academic scholarship funds are being used to help
repay a $400,000 loan secured for the expansion of
the Students' Supply Store.
Many university officials, as well as generous
alumni are obviously under the impression that a
school's reputation depends on its athletic program
and the success of its sports teams. Fine for the
official sand alumni, but the students are paying forj
this n sguidance.
Aa xdmg to Dr. John H. Home, dean of
admiss ons, academic standards, and consequently
the school's reputation for academic excellence, are
affected by three things: admissions requirements,
retention requirements and scholarship funding.
However, the ECU students are being led to believe
that their school's reputation depends on a student
supply store with a 100,000 square-feet sales area
and an enormous football stadium equipped with a
$500,000 press box, a 150-seat chancellor's guest
box, and an elevator, not to mention seven-foot
For an institution originally designed for higher
education, the officials seem to be doing everything
to de-emphasize academics and emphasize athletics.
Not a penny has been touched of the athletic
scholarship funds to help pay back this supply store
expansion loan. And half of the $2.5 million reserve
funds were dished out for the stadium expansion. But
the scant funds set aside for academic scholarships
have been totally wiped out.
Not only have these funds been depleted, but
when the academic scholarship program is rein-
stated, it will be cut from the usual $60,000 to
$30-40,000, according to Robert M. Bordreaux,
financial aid officer.
So the Scholarships, Fellowships and Financial
Aid Committee has decided to place extra emphasis
on National Merit scholarships which have not been
affected by the cut. But according to Suzie St earn,
vice-president of the League of Scholars and student
member of the committee, the success of this task is
not a sure thing. ECU does not have a reputation fa
attracting National Merit scholars. And with this
further cut in ECU'S reputation for academic
importance and excellence, increasing this pro-
bability looks extremely doubtful.
A school's reputation for academic excellence or
non-excellence affects every student of that school's
career possibilities. And the school's reputation for
either excellence or non-excellence depends on the
quality of the students in that school, not on how big
a stadium or how many sports heroes it has. By
discontinuing the academic scholarship fund pro-
gram for an indefinite period of time, ECU is also
discontinuing its quest for academic respectability.
While a larger stadium and unlimited athletic
scholarship funds are helping pack the football and
basketball teams with super-stars, more and more
ECU graduates are unemployed because graduates
from universities with reputations for academic
superiority are beating them out of jobs.
Almost $1.5 million remains dormant in the
Reserve Funds since Ficklen Stadium took its cut.
These funds could be used to help pay the supply
store's loan and ECU could continue its academic
The university officials and alumni are either
going to have to get their priorities straightened out,
or this school is going to be left with a dozen scholars,
a huge book store, and an athletic complex the size of
northern New Jersey.

editors three times, with an accompanying shift in aspect. Two years

In the music genre there shall be a change in the type of music
reviewed. This feature will concern itself with the aspects of jazz and
classical music, relegating the review of popular music to others. The
greatest movements in music are being made in the jazz field and
examination and review will be an indication of direction. As little is
actually being composed in the classical field, these articles will
concern themselves with review of artistic interpretation, rather than
The final weekly feature will be an essay or examination on the
general human condition. The essay is a lost literary form, not in a
small way due to the fact that there are few places to print them. This
revival, its premier by David W. Trevinowill display it as the effective,
humorous medium, it can be at its best.
The name Trends shall remain, but the priorities are changed.
These pages will now be standard bearers for the arts, which take such
a beating in the frenzied journalistic media.
Smokey and the Bandit - This is a slick production made for those
individuals who judge virility by automobile speed and C.B.output.
Burt Reynolds is the macho, but poetic "Bandit and Sally Fields is a
former exotic dancer escaping from a poorly conceived marriage. Thjey
combine their questionable talents in an attempt to run a truckload of
Coors beer from Texarcana to Alabama in 28 hours. The threadbare
plot is supported by the,inability of the police of 4 states to apprehend
one speeder. It is a harmless film of no substance and no stars.
Hard Georgia Road - This offensive film revolves around rape,
moonshine and the waifish sexuality of Carol Lynley. The film attempts
to draw parallels between Leo Hastings (Gary Conway) as a Nashville
Stanley Kowalski and Diana's (Carol Lynley( desire to be raped. It is
trashy and humorless. Conway is a fine actor and this reviewer is
embarrassed for him. No stars.
Not available for review at this time.
Raggedy Ann and Andy - A delightful animated version of Johnny
Gruell's children's classic. The animation is fair but the color and aura
of fantasy that surround the subject are authentic. I give this film 2 and
one half stars, but add a half if you're an animation fan.
The BUFFALO CHIPKICK-
ERS plays Bluegrass. What else
can you call hard-driving banjo,
fiddle, guitar, and bass music if
it's not Bluegrass? The only
problem is that the BUFFALO
CHIPKICKERS doesn't look like
a bluegrass band. They are not a
five-piece middle-aged never-
smiling group of guys who play
the same old bluegrass songs
over and over. They love every
show and every song as much as
the audience that won't seem to
ever let them off the stage
without an enoore.
The BUFFALO CHIPKICK-

Popular Entertainment Commit-
tee of the Student Union. The

"Slapstick" is Kurt Vonne-

Asa torch singer
By DOUG WHITE
Assistant Trends Editor
The genre of "torch" singing
has always enjoyed a critical,
rather than popular success.
Sadly, such is the case withJoan
Armatrading, easily one of the
most original singersongwriters
to surface in recent years. The
fact that an artist of her stature
can release three albums and go
largely unnotioed by the general
record buying public, while tripe
the likes of "Disco Duck" can
sell a million oopies is a distress-
ing comment on America's
Armatrading was born in the
West Indies, later emigrating to
Britain, from where her musical
roots stem. On this album, her
music encompasses a variety of
styles ranging from blues to light
jazz, making each distinctively
her own. Armatrading's band is
oompetent, but the emphasis is
on composition rather than the
technical expertise of the players.
Armatrading's lyrics, often more
akin to poetry, espouse the
quintessential topic of torch
songs, i.e 'he scorned and
battered lover, to which she adds
a refreshing spirit of independ-
ence, a promise to return to the
ring, beaten but undefeated.
Armatrading's husky voice
has the perfect edge to drive
home a line with deadly precision:
a musical femme fatale, as
smokey as she is vulnerable. This
is best demonstrated in the
album's closing track, "Tall in
the Saddle a powerful song
which builds, musically and
lyrically, until the final intense
conclusion. Jerry Donahue's lead
guitar sears the listener, slicing
through the subdued backdrop
with unnerving accuracy, melding
with the lyrics:
"Say what you willyou can't
take the stars at nighttake your
lovebut that doesn't stop my
lifeyou've been fooling aroundI
looked to you for lovethought
you walked on holy ground but

You were God's gift to girls

She masterfully juxtaposes the
repetitive, paradoxical lines, de-
scribing her lover as mean, all the
time declaring how much fun they
Do not mistake this to be an
album of broken heart songs. In
"Join the Boys she tells her
lover exactly what he can do with
his love, advising him to "join
Jack and the boysbe in a band
while she and her new ac-
quaintance will be dancing in the
floodlight, succeeding where
others have failed.
In "Love and Affection" she
explores the difference between
those two emotions, comparing
friendship and love to smiles and
laughter, later asking for a mixing
of the two, seeking only "to make
The characters and situations
are cliched ; it is her singular
genius which adds new
dimensions to old structures. One
gets the impression not only that
the author feels for her charact-
ers, but that she played their
roles too often. In "Help Your-
self a song telling her lover not
to depend on her for everything,
that it's too late to save their love,
she likens herself to a Cing
child, needing immediate con-
solation: "don't pick me upwhen

can at times simply, purely soar.
The book, though, as a whole,
flounders. Despite the character-
istically mixed time sequence,
Eliza, who nearly dominates the
first half of the book, is rarely
referred to in the last half, which
leaves one to wonder about her
necessity in the plot. Eliza dies
midway through the book and
becomes one of the story's most
blatant untied ends. It is a
disappointment because one-
senses that Vonnegut missed a
chance for some fine irony. The
book also lacks the poignant
cial statement present in
ughterhouse-Five and Cat's
adle. When the author does
satirize it is done with such
heavy-handednessthat the reader
feels boredom rather than startled
recognition produced. The plan
for giving everyone a family of a
hundred thousand based on
government-issued middle names
is perhaps the book's most
ingenious aspect, yet compared to
the beautifully constructed anti-
religion of Cat's Cradle and the
supra-rationality of the Tral-
famadorians, the device is weak
The book begins with "the
nearest thing to an autobiography

brief prologue that Vonnegut
achieves the high level of poig-

so distinguishes him as an author.

It would be desireable to say
that Slapstick is simply an off
novel that reflects only a
temporary lapse in the creator of
the inimitable Kilgor Trout, but
viewed in relation to the last few
books Vonnegut has written, it
seems more precise to say that
Slapstick is but another step down
in a decline that has been obvious
in his last works. Perhaps Vonne-
gut himself sums up the problem
most succinctly in the words of
the book's protagonist. "It is a

Billy Lee stays
ioses two vets
By STEVE WHEELER
New head basketball coach at
East -Carolina, Larry Gillman,
announced the fifth and final
recruit for the 1977-78 season on
Monday. In the last two weeks, he
has also announced the signing of
two more recruits and the re-
tention of Billy Lee as an assistant
coach. Lee served last season
under Dave Pattern. Jso it nas
been learned that two of last
year's players have transferred to
Gardner-Webb and a third is
expected to be leaving.
Roger Carr, a 6-6, 230-pound
all-state forward from Garland,
N.C Bernard Hill, a 6-7V2,
190-pound all-state forward
from Ramape, N.Y and Dan
Roberts, a 6-1 Vi, 165-pound all-
state backcourt operative from
Nashville, Ind have signed
grants-in-aid with East Carolina
in the past two weeks.
Carr, a power forward likened
to Wake Forest's Rod Griffin,
scored over 700 points during his
senior year for a 29 point average.
He also pulled an average of 19
rebounds per game. For four
years of interscholastic action,
Carr averaged 25 points and 16
rebounds per game.
Carr was all-conference for
three years in the Carolina's 1-A
loop, Player of the Year in the
conference for two years, all-East
fa two years and best all-round
athlete at Garland High for two
years. He was also an all-league
performer playing first base for
the baseball team.
The lithe Hill led Rockland
County in scoring as a senior with
a 24.2 average. He also cleaned
the boards at 13 per game. He
was the Rockland County Player
of the Year and Most Valuable
Player at Ramape High.
Perhaps his greatest honor
was being voted MVP in the
Easter Tournament in New York
City. Schools from New York,
New Jersey and Connecticut
competed in the tourney.
Roberts led the state in
Indiana in scoring this season
with 33.6 average. He scored 638
points to set a new school record
for points and average. On four
occasions, Roberts scored over 40
points and was never under 20 in
any one game.
"Even though we got a late
start Gillman noted after the
recruiting season was over, "I
think we got some very fine
players. We are most pleased
with all five of our signees
Oliver Mack, a 6-3, 198-
pound guard from San Jacinto
(Tex.) Junior College and Walter
Moseley, a 6-1 V2, 175-pound
guard from St. John's (Wis.)
Military Academy were earlier
signees of the young coach. Mack
ano Moseley are natives of
Queens, N.Y giving Gillman
three New Yorkers, one from
Indiana and one in-state Tar Heel
for his signees.
LEE TO STAY AT ECU
It was also announced last
week that Billy Lee, a graduate
assistant under Dave Pattern last
year, would remain as a part of
the new staff. Herb Dillon, an
assistant at North Texas State,
was earlier announced as an
assistant to Gillman.
Lee came to East Carolina last
year from New Bern High School,
where he had been a highly
successful coach for three years.
He is a native of Mt. Olive, N.C.
"We're happy that Billy has
decided to stay on with us said
Gillman. "Billy'senthusiasm and
knowledge of the state of North
Carolina will be a great asset to

Toledo, who was originally dropped from the
schedule to make room for the Blue Devils, is also
back on the schedule. Texas-Arlington was dropped
from the Pirates' schedule to make room for both
Toledo and Duke.

Toledo's athletic director, Vern Smith, went to
Toledo University Board of Control (much the same
as the ECU Board of Trustees) because Toledo oould
not find a suitable opponent for Sept. 17. On June 2,
a report coming out of Toledo said the school would
go to court to see that East Carolina was in Toledo
on Sept. 17.
A souroe in Toledo said attorneys for the Ohio
school were in federal court on Friday, June 3, but
oould not get through any of process on that day.
At the same time, Cain and Smith were talking
on the phone about the situation, and Smith said a
lawsuit was "imminant He also said the only
satisfactory solution was for East Carolina to be in
Toledo on Sept. 17.
After talking to all parties involved, Cain said
nothing could be worked out to satisfy everyone,
except for East Carolina and Toledo to meet. "We .
have decided to do just that

operated with us in a most diligent fashion Cain
added, "and has ultimately been a major solution to
Bowing to the pressure of Toledo leaves ECU
with just four homes games for the upcoming
season, with six road dates and the Oyster Bowl to
be played on a neutral field.
The Pirates will have to open for the first three
games on the road now - at State, at Duke and at
Toledo - before returning home for VMI.
The Duke contract, signed May 19, means the
Pirates will have played all the Big Four teams after
they meet. It will be the first of a reported four game
series. Other games are rumored to be in 1979, 1980
"For some time East Carolina officials have
expressed a tremendous interest in playing Duke

director said. "We are pleased to have this
opportunity to play East Carolina, and I hope the
football game will command the great spectator
interest that East Carolina coaches and officials have
Cain was elated about getting the game, saying,
"I'm certain that we will have a tremendous
following when we go up there.
"We have been after the game for a long time.
It's a game we wanted because it is the culmination
of our efforts to play all the Big Four teams
The Pirates have played State for the past seven
years, Carolina four times since 1972, and played
Wake Forest in 1963. Carolina and Wake are
expected back on the schedule in 1978.

Pirates begin summer loop
with two wins and one loss
East Carolina started its first
week of summer league baseball
action off on a winning note by
going two and one for the week.
The 2-1 record included an
opening win over UNC 4-2 and in
a Saturday night slugfest the
Pirates defeated Campbell Col-
lege 16 to9. In the only loss of the
week Atlantic Christian squeaked
by ECU 7 to 6.
In the Carolina game played
on June 7, UNC scored its only
two runs of the game in the sixth
inning. Phil Griffith singled and
Mike Fox singled him to third
base. Then Fox took second base
on a throw in. It was here that
Brad Lloyd singled in both
Griffith and Fox for the Tar

in the sixth as Eddie Gates tripled
and Bobby Supel singled him in.

Tyron Edwards and Louis Crosby,
�both part-time starters last sea-
son, have transferred to Gardner-
I Webb College, a NAIA power.
- Reserve guard Billy Dineen is
also expected to transfer closer to
I his home in Westwood, N.J.
Crosby, a 6-3 Shelby native,
started two games his freshman
season and averaged 7.9 points
per game, while starting rmx-i of
the Pirates' 28 games this past
season, finishing with a 7.2
average and 66 assists, second
best on the team.
Edwards, a 6-11 center, was a
star at Northwood High School in
Pittsboro, but averaged only 3.2
points for ECU his freshman
season and 2.1 last year. He
pulled around three rebounds per
game each season.
Dineen averaged 3.5 and 3.8
in two seasons with the Pirates
after scoring around 25 per game
in high school.
Crosby and Edwards are
leaving East Carolina because of
personal conflicts with Gillman,
while Dineen wants to be closer to
his ailing mother in New Jersey.

do not see "eye to eye on some
things and "he (Gillman) said I

in the regional opener while the
host Gamecocks eliminated the
Pirates 4-1 in the consolation

Britt and Wake's Merle Henkel
hooked up in a pitcher's duel until
the seventh when the Deacon's
second baseman Bob Heley
cracked a home run just over the
outstretched glove of ECU'S
centerfielder Robert Brinkley.
With both pitchers tiring, the
batters started hitting the ball
hard. With the bases loaded and
one out in the eighth, Wake
Forest's Kenny Baker popped up
to rightfielder Eddie Gates. Gates
threw to the plate, but the ball
was off the mark. First baseman
Sonny Wooten cut the ball off and
threw a perfect strike to catcher
Raymie Styons. Styons had Doug
Henley out, but the Demon
Deacon runner kicked the ball out
of Sytons' glove to score.
The Pirates got the run back in
the bottom of the inning when
Jerry Carraway led the inning off
with a walk, took third on Pete

year. He was the one we looked to

Wooten said that although he
was ecstatic about the chance for
professional baseball, he was sad
