of The New York Times, and Joe

The convention consisted of 16

A total of 36 reporters were
working on the project, with nine

written at least once, and many
were rewritten five or six times.

asked to write a book about the

SGA transit system
running two routes
The Student Government
Association's (SGA) bus services
are running two routes this
summer, according to SGA
Transit Manager Gene Summer -
The number of routes will
expand to three again in the fall.
The bus routes presently
include Mendenhall Student
Center and most of the apart-
ments and student residential
areas off campus.
No major changes have oc-
curred since Neil Sessoms, SGA
president, took office. According
to Summerlin, any changes would
be left up to the transit manager.
The bus routes will remain the
same as they have been for fall,
with the purple, gold and brown
schedules in full swing. An
additional bus is on standby in
case of mechanical failure.
According to Summerlin, the
schedules have already been
extended by one hour from last
year: from 230 to 330.
The buses will run until 5:30
Another planned change for
fall is that the gold schedule will
include the newly constructed
Summerlin feels that it will
only add a few minutes to the
route, but will be important for
the safety of the students.
Presently, the bus stops at Pitt
The additional stop will pre-
vent students from having to
cross the 264 by-pass.
A van has been ordered to
serve the handicapped students.
The funds fa the van have
already been appropriated.
The state is supplying the
needed funds for the additional
equipment for the van, including
tie-downs for the wheel chairs, a
mechanical lift, a bubble roof,
i id a C.B. Radio.
The brown bus, which is
moperatiave during the summer,
could be run if need were
"I am willing said Summer-
lin, "to run the bus if the students
will respond to it
He reports some feedback,
but not enough to run the bus.
Although not as many people
are here to take advantage of the
bus services during the summer,
many students must stand in the
aisles during regular session.

ber of riders during the fall will

SGA purchases van

Sessoms said the alloted funds
will amply cover costs of the van
"We hope to have it operative

He added that the van will
probably be on campus "within
Providing both taxi service
and a standard set route, the
vehicle will be painted gold and
white to match other SGA buses.

ARE YOU SURE YOU KNOW
WHAT FAMILY PLANNING
IS ALL ABOUT?
If you think it means preventing unwanted pregnancy you're
partly right. But it means more than that Like counseling
young people about how a baby before they are ready can
affect their health or mess up their lives helping couples
who want to have children but can't counseling men on male
responsibility and methods of birth control.
It's important to know ALL about family planning
more than you may have thought.

Greenville's shift of concern from
slum clearance to community
development, according to Kerby
Boyd of the dty's Redevelopment
"Our purpose now is to
restore and preserve existing
neighborhoods to prevent them
from deteriorating into the slums
of the future said Boyd.
Slums imply harried, fearful,
desperated people living in filthy,
broken-down tenements with gar-
bage in the streets and vermin
No single factor causes the
dedine of a neighborhood, accor-
ding to planning studies conduc-

Many blighting factors are
involved in the deterioration of

According to the planning
studies, zoning was originally
developed to physically separate
industrial areas from residential
areas so that the current livability
of the residential community
could be maintained.
The proximity to residential
areas of such activities are noise,
glare, odors, electrial disturban-
ces, and traffic congestion are
considered disturbing factors.
Since the consideration of
psychological impact is involved,
this judgment is necessarily
somewhat subjective, according
to the planning studies.

Perhaps the quickest, easiest way to get rich in
Greenville, North Carolina is to own apartments,
duplexes, or housing of any sort. The thousands of
ECU students are here to fill every vacancy. And with
waiting lists even for the dormitories, the students
have to have places to live.
The landlords and realty companies know this, as
they know the students are forced to settle for just
about any cost or condition in housing that they can
get. Consequently, apartment owners have a wide,
open field for taking advantage of the students. And
they do it to perfection.
The popular rent rate in the major complexes for
one-bedroom apartments is at least $135 per month.
This includes nothing except maybe water and
sewage. Two-bedroom apartments range anywhere
between $155 to $200.
Of course, there are a great number of smaller
complexes dotted around this university town. Many
of them are every bit as expensive as the larger ones.
A few, however, such as Mr. William Corbitt's Sixth
St. apartments, are $120 or $125 per month for
one-bedroom. This is a bit more reasonable. At least
these apartments are in good repair, have
oomfortable floor space and are relatively close to
For those who cannot afford $125 per month,
there are $70 and $90 apartments here and there,
usually one-bedroom, that even come equipped with
their own roaches, leaky gas heaters, broken down
appliances, thin, non-insulated walls, plaster and
paint crumbling from every wall and ceiling, and
toilets that rarely function properly.
But the realty companies and large land owners
are not the only Greenvillites who take advantage of
the students. Dozens of senior citizens living in
residential sections near campus see fit to furnish
tiny garage apartments or "efficiencies" with attic
furniture and charge up to $150 a month rent. Their
common justification is mere location.
Landlords of all types have no problem charging
such rates. Students cannot risk complaining about
it. The landlords can evict a student one day and
re-rent that apartment the next. The demand is
Yes, housing of any sort in Greenville is a sure bet
for fast, easy money. And the students who have put
this small, Southern town on the map must suffer as
the scapegoats of the whole, shoddy affair.

States should pay for abortions
The U.S. Supreme Court Monday
ruled that each state has the constitu-
tional right to decide for itself if it will
pay for abortions for the poor.
This is a typical move for our
conservative court, and a fairly reason-
able one. Now let's hope the states,
including North Carolina, will decide to
pay for these abortions.
Ninth grade sociology classes know
that the lesser educated, lower income
persons are the ones having so many
children today. These are also the
persons who form the welfare lines,
contribute so many abandoned children
to state supported orphanages, fill
state juvenile centers and aowd the
waiting rooms of state health centers.
Many tax payers might complain
about using their money to pay for
others' abortions. But they will either
pay for the abortions now, or pay fa
mae aphans, juvenile delinquents
and welfare recipients later.
Therefae, if the states will decide
in fava of paying fa abort ions fa the
poa, the tax payers will actually be
doing themselves a fava and saving
moiey in the long run.

As a oonoerned individual of
the ECU campus, I want to
express my conuern fa a special
group of students here.
It hasn't been long ago that I
made a decision to accept Christ
into my life as both Lord and
Savior. That was easy enough to
do: with a typical "church
upbringing" I've always believed
in man's inherent sinfulness and
Jesus' divine nature.
The problem that over-
whelmed me was sexual devia-
tion. I knew I was homosexual
and it never really bothered me.
My few trips to a couple of gay
bars were delightful and the
people I met were often really
But something kept nagging
at me. Although I wasn't con-
vinced that homosexuality was
wrong, depression plagued me as
did a nervous problem and fears
that had no basis.
During the time following my
"coming out" into the gay scene.I
also dated a very wise Christian
girl. It was impossible to cover up
my secret life for long and soon
she knew my story.
But she nev&r condemned me.
We dated for several months and
with a Christlike patience, she
gradually persuaded me that my
lifestyle was wrong and convinced
me that I'd have to quit running
It was extremely difficult to
straighten up but I'm glad I did. It
took time and even now I have
trouble constraining my fleshly
But my depression has lifted
and I haven't had trouble with
nerves for a long time.
Problems didn't leave me
instantly, of course. In fact, for a
while, I wasn't sure I could
withstand the pressure and
trauma of leaving my old friends
and way of life.
No lie: it was tough.
But now I'm stronger for the
struggle. And more than that, I
can't just go along a happy little
Christian life without remember-
ing all the indjviduals like me who
frequented the bars.
They're people just like me.
They're God'screatures, just like
me. But not all of them have
accepted Jesus into their lives.
Not all of them can make that
decision, merely because the very
lifestyles they lead prevents them
from submitting to a committed
Now the point of this letter
applies to everyone but I especial-
ly want the gays to consider the
"Jesus Christ died for your
sins. Whether or not you perceive
your sexualsocial life as wrong
or right, there are other aspects of
your life that need cleaning up
too. God loves you and really
wants to oome into your life. You
can't dean up your life and then
oome to Christ. That's why he
died in the first place. Please,
please, wherever you are right
now, ask Jesus to oome into your
heart. Tell him you'll turn away
from whatever in your life is
sinful but ask him to TELL you
what is right and what is wrong.
Just let Jesus in now. You'll be
doing yourself a favor
That's just about the crux of
the matter.Jesus is real as real
can be. But h' won't oome into
your heart un.ass you invite him.
And whether you're straight,
homosexual, miserable or con-
tented, He's waiting.

ECU student, Pitt County 4-H funded for program
By HELENA WOODARD
The North Carolina Internship
Office (NCJO) recently funded a
proposal by ECU student Cynthia
Lynne Yow and the Pitt County
4-H Program to organize a
Citizenship Education Program In
Lynne, a junior and political
science major, will serve as
Program Coordinator for the
Citizenship Education Program.
Actual planning and preparation
for the project will begin July 11
and will end August 26, 1977.
According to Lynne, the pur-
pose of the project is to structure
citizenship participation to the
maximum effect. As cited in her
proposal, the project, appealing
directly to youth, civic organiza-
tions and all interested citizens,
can result in an improvement in
the quality of Pitt County's

started she added.
According to Dr. Harper,
Cooperative Education at ECU
seeks to provide opportunities fa
students to alternate periods of
academic study with periods of
off-campus employment related
to their academic majors on
Lynne said that she needed
someone to become affiliated with
for the project. Mike Davis,
director of the 4-H Extension
Program, apparently had ideas
similar to Lynne's own plans.
"He needed someone to imple-
ment his program she said.

October Light pure
There isa traceable crumbling of the fabric of morality. The human
being is stumbling into the twentieth century, shedding old virtues and
principles as they become inconvenient. Those most affected, are the
ancients. The 70 year old men and women whose youth and minds and
prejudices are of another century. They stoically pursue their values
while their bodies wither with them inside. They have lived too long.
October Light by John Gardner is a lyrical probing of the
convictions and sorrows of several old Vermonters. He parades
characters and ideologies before the reader as priest, dope,
smugglers, old men, ghosts. He parallels the destruction of the
relationship of two old people, with the existential decline of several
characters in a novel.
James and Sally Page are brother and sister in their seventies who
live in peace until the intrusion of the outside world, in the form of
Sally'stelevisiDn set provokes him to violence. He is a guilt ridden old
man who finds the only absolutes in his farm and Ethan Allan. He
draws his strength from his history, and as his memories fade, so does
This isa novel of pure lyric. If one can say this, the actuality of plot
and characters are lost in sheer appreciation H craftsmanship. He
weaves his pic and subplot, moving the reader . from one hopeless
world to the next
Sally Abboti is a woman whose riches and beauty have faded and
she is forced to move back with her brother and submit to his rules, his
politics. James' destruction of her T.V. set is the final straw and she
boards herself in her room with a trashy novel. Both too stubborn to
relent, their fears and politics bubble to the surface and they are left
much the same as before but with the reality that they are changed,
tainted and dying.
October Light will never appear on the best seller list. It does not
contain a terrifying carnivorous animal, it is neither contrived nor
shallow enough to be made into a T.V. movie and it is far too complex
to be attempted by many screenwriters. John Gardner is a purist, and
he is to popular fiction what Barishnikov is to the box step.
Final Chapter: Walking Tall - The poster fa this movie reads, "Now
there was a man That may be true but the question is what sort of
man. This is the final episode in this trilogy of barbaric justice and it is
comprised of the same senseless violence as the previous films. Buford
Pusser is dead, and this film embarrasses his memory. One star,
because one never says anything bad about the dead.
Other Side of Midnight - It isa female fantasy concerning a woman and
figures whose characters are reminiscent of actual people. (Aristotle
Onassis). It is a film that attempts to justify the glamour of the jet set
and its morality, until its end. The climax is interesting, if not very
surprising. I give this film two stars, as the acting is fair, and the
The Eage Has Landed
The Heretic - Review on page 8.
Smokey and the Bandit - Burt Reynolds and Sally fields (strikes one
and two) are two kindred spirits caught up in a country Western world
they had not made. But they have managed to become an exotic dancer
and male fantasy in their misery. The sensitivity of their relationship is
directly coupled with their mission in life, which is to smuggle a
truckload of Coors beer across three states. No stars.
Catastrophe- This is a film that plays upon the morbid curiosity in each
of us. It is strictly documentary with dubbed commentary that is so
melodramatic as to be funny. The director and presumably his wife and
children, are the voices of the unseen victims describing their terror.
Their accents are cheap and atrocious. The actual disaster footage is
impressive with the horror of sinking ships and exploding airships. The
only other people in the theatre with this reviewer, were two nine year
old boys who howled when they saw people jumping from a hotel
holding mattresses. No stars, no kids.

is an impressive speech for a man

Radl recruits a witty IRA
fanatic, Liam Devlin (Donald

man university to help in the
kidnap attempt. Devlin is too nice
a terrorist to spend his time
making bombs in his basement in

so he can fight the English he
hates with a dear conscience.
The commander of the para-
troopers, Colonel Steiner
(Michael Caine), is a war hero
in prison with his command under
a suspended death sentence fa
attempting to aid a Jewish woman

Once the action shifts to the

come so contrived as i to

minutes of contacting the local
German spy (Jean Marsh), Devlin
is completely integrated into local
society and has won the undying
love of Molly the Milkmaid
(Jenny Agutter) who gees on to
shoot ha old boyfriend rather
than allow him to expose Devlin
as a Nazi operative. Though she
dees not approve of what Devlin
is doing, Molly says she loves him
and cannot bear to see him
Disguised as free Polish para-
troopers, Steina and his men
have little mae trouble winning
ova the entire village. By playing
Bach on the church agan and
running about marily in the
streets the Germans are able to
gain the oonf idence of evayoie in
a community seemingly popu-
lated entirely by good-hearted
dolts. When one of the Gamans
is killed saving the life of a small
girl his Nazi unifam is exposed
and within the hour the locals
have discovaed what is going on
in front of them. This act of
Gaman oompassion introduces a
bunch of Amaican buffoons led
by a combat craving National
Guard colonel (Larry Hagman).
Steina escapes while all his men
are killed holding off the Amai-
cans. He finally manages to find
Churchill and kill him but,
Churchill is not killed because hs
isonly a Churchill look-a-like who
won a vacation in the country to
fool the Gamans while the real
Churchill went to Tehran.
As if this is not enough to
satisfy any one looking fa cinana
vaite Devlin and Molly survive
and begin a new life togetha as

Exorcist II: elaborate mediocrity
By DAVID TREVINO
If you are planning to see
Exorcist II, THE HERETIC be-
cause Richard Burton has a role in
it, remember that you can always
see Laurence Olivier and Rex
Harrison doing commerdals on
television for free. Traditionally,
sequels are but faded imitations
of a proven hit inspired by the
hope of further profits This is
certainly the case with the new
accessory to the EXORCIST.
Technically, THE HERETIC is
not a poor film. Director John
Boorman has put together a slick,
unified product. He makes in-
telligent use of conventional film
techniques to oover the basic
weakness of a plot that attempts
to explicate the reason there ever
was an original EXORCIST film
and why it should be allowed to
breed like the PLANET OF THE
APES of the late 60's.
Red is used as a device to
identify the sdentific method and
its inability to resolve the super
natural forces at work in the
movie. One of the initial uses of
red is with the Cardinal (Paul
Henreid) who assigns Father
Lament (Richard Burton) to in-
vestigate the drcumstances sur-
rounding the death of Father
Merrin (Max Von Sydow) in the
original Exordst. Thisassodation
only seems to imply dogmatidsm
but when later linked with the
other uses of red it can be related
to established science's refusal to
recognize forces beyond its sys-
tems of measure. The little tabs
on the headgear of a machine of a
machine which synchronizes the
brain waves of a person under
hypnosis with another mind were
red as were eccentric drdes
appearing around flashes of light
emitted from the machine.
The next three uses of red
appear in sequences which takes
place in Africa and are the best
manipulated in the film. As
Lament is flying towards a holy
dty in Africa where he expeds to
find Kokumo (james Earl Jones)
other planes are spraying red
pestiddesto prevent the influx of
locusts which Lamont's pilot
dedares has no effect.
Onoe Lamont reaches the dty,
he is unable to find Kokumo and
asks a policeman with a red fez
for directions. The policeman is of
absolutely no value. Once Lamont
reaches Kokumo he finds the holy
man seated beyond a moat filled
with nails. Kokumo explains to
Lamont that to cross over he must
depend on his faith and spits a
� tomato from his mouth onto a nail
showing how far sdence will carry
In the final scenes, which
takes place in Washington, D.C
Boorman seems to be reaching for
strained images using red. A
hand rail has flecks of red on
another-wiseblack surface sug-
gesting that sdence can be an aid
to dealing with supernatural
forces but, that it ends at a point
and something else must take
over. When Dr. Gene Tuskin
(Louise Fletcher) tells Lamont
and Reagan (Linda Blair) that the
sdentific world'is not ready for
the truths they offer and a red dot
appears beside her head, it seems
as though Boorman has exhaust-
ed the symbol. He uses it once
more on top of the police cars
(which usually have blue lights)
which arrive on the scene along
with the deafest group of neigh-
bors anywhere after the entire
house has been razed to the
ground. Boorman needed
a device which would allow for
deviation from the laws of nature
without the appearance of absurd
contrivance. Fa this purpose he
uses a visually exdting deception
brought about by reflected and
refraded images. Boornrwi puts
faces in mirrors, behind glass, in
reflection on water surfaces and
in seeminqly infinite refledions
and refractions from sets of
mirrors. He is most effective at
this technique in the center where
Dr. Tuskin works which has no
In spite of Boorman's adroit
usage of dnematic devices, THE
HERETIC is still no more than an
elaborately mediocre movie. Four
years ago when THE EXORCIST
was originally released, demonic
possession held a great deal more
fasdnation than it does today
after a glut of possession movies
which peaked in BURNT OFFER-
ING when Karen Black was
possessed by the spirit of a house.
Despite its seeming ex-
haustion as a theme, another
EXORCIST film is now in the
planning stages. EXORCIST III,
THE HUCKSTER will again star

is explosive, hampered only by

seductive "Judy" is a classic,
further enhanced by Walden's
subtle percussion. Walden's
Your Love closes the album on
a sour note. Buchanan's thin
voice adds to the destruction of a
basically weak song.
"Hidden" is the nearest approxi-
mation Buchanan makes to jazz,
and this reviewer hopes it is an
indication of things to oome.
Buchanan's other compositions
are firmly rooted in his specialty
of bluesrock. "The Circle"
attempts to be great rock, with
music that can best be described
as a hybrid of "Gimme Shelter"
and "All Along the Watchtower"
with one-fourth the energy of
either. The song is plagued with
embarrassingly simple lyrics.
"The Adventures of Brer
Rabbit and Tar Baby" is the
album's most enjoyable moment.
This tongue in cheek duet be-
tween Buchanan and Clarke
marvellously paradies the
twangy, railroad rhythm of early
"guitar" reoords by the likes of
Les Paul or Chet Atkins. Clarke's
wash tub bass is marvelous.
In "Done Your Daddy Dirty
Buchanan keeps the lyrics merci-
fully short, repeating the title,
allowing the music to express his
"shame on you" attitude.
All the pyrotechnics
befitting a "legendary" perform-
er are in order, with some truly
amazing riffs tossed about like
confetti. Buchanan continues to
assert himself as a major force in

man from Winter Park, Fla.) He
will make us super strong in the
freestyle events and relays
Schaffer, a butterflier from
Rockville, Md attended
Magruder High School. She has
best times of 1 00.7 in the 100 fly
and 2:10.6 in the200 fly. Her time

COACH RAY SCHARF, coach of East Carolina's 12-time Southern
Conference champion swim tim, announced the signing of two
swimmers yesterday. Julie Schaffer will join the Lady Pirates, while
Kevin Weisel will join the men's squad. Scharf will coach both teams

ECU assistant athletic director
and former wrestling coach, John
Wei born, announced today the
signing of three more wrestlers.
Soloman revils, Frank Prewitt and
Scott Eaton signed grants-in-aid
with the Pirates.
Revils, a native of Norfolk,
Va will wrestle in the 190-pound
weight class for the Pirates next
year. Although Revils has only
wrestled fa two years, he has
compiled a phenomenal record
with little experience. During his
junior season, Revils finished
third in the Virginia state
championships after winning the
district title. He finished the year
with a 35-5-2 record at 185 and
was outstanding wrestler. As a
senior, Revils had a record of 27-0
and won the district and state
championships in the 185-pound
class. He was outstanding wrest-
ler on the team.
Prewitt, a 142-pounder from
Norwich, N.Y is the brother of
Paul Prewitt, a four-year wrestler
for the Pirates. Prewitt attended
Norwich High School until his
senior year when he wrestled for
As a freshman 98-pounder
Prewitt was 18-8 and was fourth
in the Shurburne-Earleville
Tourney and third in Section 4,
Class A. Wrestling at 112, he
bettered his mark to 25-5 during
his sophomore season. He was
second in the Shurburne-Earle-
ville Tournament and first in
Section 4, Class A. Prewitt
improved his record to 28-1 -1 as a
junior, wrestling at 126. He won
the Sidney Tourney and was first

at Shurburne-Earleville High,
Prewitt finished 29-1-1. He was
first in the Shurburne-Earleville
Tournament, first in the Section
4, Class A, and second in the
Eaton, another 142-pounder,
attended Grove City (Pa.) High
School. After going 5-5 as a
freshman, he was sectional
runner-up for two years before
winning the sectionals as a
senior. He had records of 10-5 as
a soph, 15-2-1 as a junior and
14-2-1 as a senior.
"We are very happy to get
these three guys into our pro-
gram Welborn said. "Revils
will give us the help we need at
190. He is a gutsy type of
wrestler. He's got a lot of

Robinson has picked up 10 hits in 20 trips for a
fine .5000 batting average.
East Carolina's Eddie Gates moved up from third

while Dave Terrell of Campbell leaped from eighth
' to third with a .429 mark.

with a 6-1 record, while Louisburg is second at 6-2.
East Carolina is the only other team above .500 with
a 5-3 mark.
