Campus streets widened
News Editor
Staff Writer
Streets are being widened, a
parking lot has been constructed,
but there are no plans for
additional paving due to lack of
funds, according to James J.
Lowry, Director of Operations.
The street from Gotten dorm
to Fletcher dorm is being widened
to allow for easier traffic flow,
according to Lowry, but there are
no plans to change one-way
streets to two-way streets.
"The street behind Gotten,
Fleming, and Jarvis will remain a
one-way street said Lowry.
The street will continue to be a
two-street from the end of Jarvis
to Fletcher, according to Lowry.
"Everything will eventually
be the same as it was said
The widening of the streets
should be complete prior tc the
beginning of fall semester, ac-
cording to Lowry.
A parking lot which will yield
approximately 100 parking spaces
has been constructed in front of
the drama building and paving
should have begun yesterday,
according to Lowry.
There are no major changes
this year concerning the parking
situation, according to Francis
Eddings, Assistant Director of
Security, Traffic, and Safety.
No new parking lots will be
constructed, except fa the lot in
front of the drama building, said
Several "staff parking"
spaces have been added to
several of the parking lots, but
there is no parking space lost to
students, faculty, or staff mem-
bers, according to Eddings.
" No one is losing any parking
space said Eddings.
The barricade on the street
near Fletcher and Garrett dorms
leading to Fifth Street has been
removed, said Eddings, but may
have to be replaced, due to street
construction, if necessary.
There were tentative plans to
pave the dirt parking lot beside
Garrett dorm this summer, but
there is no money to fund the

for it (the paving) this summer
said Lowry.
"Exactly when it will be
paved, I couldn't tell you
Funds for paving come from
the N.C. General Assembly,
according to Lowry.
To surface the parking lot with
gravel would be costly, too,
according to Lowry.
There would be a lot of work
beforehand even just putting
rocks there said Lowry.
A building across from the
campus police station is being
demolished, and there are plans
to build a small utilities center on
the site, according to Lowry.
The renovation was a three-
phase project, including the con-
struction of a new power plant,
now completed, according to
Lowry said it is hoped that the
bookstore can be moved into its
new quarters prior to August 19
to reopen August 22.
Lowry also said a small animal
facilty fa the medical school is
being constructed in the court-
yard behind Ragsdale.

To discuss parking problems
SGA, city form committee
News Edita
The SGA is waking jointly
with the City of Greenville toward
the aeation of the ECU-Green-

study the parking problem at
ECU and surrounding areas.
The committee will consist of
members from the ECU student
body, the Greenville City Council,
the ECU administration, and one
member from the ECU Board of
The committee will be chaired
by the SGA representative to the
city council, Jerry Cox.
"This is a maja step ?oward

Experts predict more than adequate water for future
Staff Writer
Local water experts have
predicted that the area's water
supply will be mae than ade-
quate, at least fa the near future.
Willie Pate, directa of the Pitt
County Department of Environ-
mental Health Services, said he
faesaw no projected water shat-
age. That department is respons-
ible fa drinking water.
"Most farms use reservoirs
and ponds in which water was
collected during the winter,
thereby alleviating any strain on
the public water system Pate
O. Kelly Patton, a chemical
analyst at the water treatment
plant for the Public Works
Commission, said only a severe
drought would seriously hamper
adequate water supplies.
"A drought-connected wata
shortage is possible, but the
drougnt would have to be
strong said Patton. "But if
there is any water at ail, our new
intake system could channel it
Geologists say the water sup-
ply is limitless, but that the
problem is getting to it.
According to the "North
Carolina Atlas a comprehensive
study of the state's geology,
precipitation is the basic source
fa water resources here. Nath
Carolina has an average annual
precipitation of 45 to 70 inches, an
ample water supply as long as it is

ECU enrollment increases
Staff Writer
Thirty-eight per cent of the
student body is enrolled in the
first session of summer school,
the highest number ever, accord-
ing to Diana Morris, of the Office
of Institutional Research.
The students, totaling 4,417,
consist of 1,980 males and 2,437
Last summer's first session
enrollment totaled 4,076, 35 per
cent of the student body.
Enrollment has grown steadily
over the years.
Fall of 1976, the enrollment
was 11,696, consisting of 5,340
males and 6,356 females.
In 1966, the enrollment was
8,834, consisting of 4,474 males
and 4,360 females.
Dormitories will be full for
the fall, according to Morris.
Last year, dormitory students
consisted of 2,288 males and
3,234 females.
Day students consisted of
2,852 males and 2,924 females.
Two hundred males lived in
fraternity houses, and 198 fe-
males lived in sorority houses.
The number of out-of-state
students has decreased, pre-
sumably due to the increased cost
of tuition.
In 1966, there were 1,573
out-of-state students and 7,261
in-state students.
Last year, out-of-state stu-
dents numbered 1,160 and in-
state students had increased to
An out-of-state student living
on campus in 1966 paid $234 per
quarter. Last year, an c it-of-state
student paid $831 per quarter.
In-state student tuition was
increased from $150 per quarter
in 1966 to $281 per quarter last
The largest percentage of
out-of-state students came from
Virginia, New Jersey, Maryland,
and Pennsylvania, according to
In-state students came from
Pitt, Wake, Cumberland, Lenoir
and Wayne Counties.
Although the dorms are filled
to capacity for fall semester, there
are no plans to build more
housing areas.
All estimates point to 1980 as
the leveling-off year, and de-
creases in enrollment are expect-
ed every year after that.
Students in college now are
the last traces of the "baby
boom" of the 1940s and '50's.
With the population growth
now at 0, there will inevitably be a
decrease in the number of
students attending college.
Group sponsors workshop
A Death Penalty Workshop
sponsored by the North Carolina
Alliance Against Racist and
Political Repression will be held
in Greenville on Saturday, July
In response to the state
legislature's recent enactment of
a new death penalty law, the
Alliance will sponsor workshops
around the state to inform church
people and oommunity people of
the facts regarding the institution
of capital punishment, and to
mobilize people and develop
oommunity support fa those who
oould be unjustly oonvicted and
sentenced to death.
Of the last 49 people executed
in North Carolina all have been
black, in spite of the fact that far
more whites are charged with
those capital crimes for which
death could be the punishment,
as a UNC-Chapel Hill Law School
study points out. So the Alliance

when he reached the podium.
Laughter erupted throughout

Murray's paper won the
Pulitzer because of investigative
stories on the death of a boy in

The boy was a borderline
retardate and should not have
been admitted to the Marine
camp, according to Murray.
The story walked in the front
door, said Murray, as a boy
brought the news to them.

Realtor adds facts to rent editorial
In regards to your "Easy
Money" editorial in the June 22,
1977 edition of the FOUNTAIN-
HEAD, please allow me to add
my two oents worth.
First of all, if you would check
with the many real estate firms in
Greenville, you would find that
very few handle rentals at all.
Frankly, the complexes and indi-
vidual owners do not need the
help of an agent because the units
rent quickly and easily. We
readily pass on any information of
vacancies that we have, or refer
inquiries to the only exclusive
rental agency that is a member of
the Greenville-Pitt County Board
of Realtors!
Our agency has handled the
sale of several duplexes in the
past twelve months. All have sold
for $40,000 to $42,500 (building
oosts, labor, developed land, and
other oosts determine prices).
When you consider that a pur-
chaser will have to put up 25
cash ($10,000 of his money!) on a
rental unit and that if he rents
both sides for $165.00 per month
($330.00 total) and that his
monthly mortgage payment will
be from $240.00 up per month;
plus, ne will have to pay city and
county taxes, fire insurance and
maintenance oosts, this can hard-
ly be considered "easy money
Of oourse, duplexes represent
only a portion of the rental
market, but I used this to
illustrate that you did not have all
the facts.
I sympathize with the students
and everyone else, including
myself every month at bill time,
who must endure the high oost of
living. But, realtors alone cannot
solve the housing problems any
more than the doctors can control
the price of medications at the
drug store! I agree with you that
with some less modern apart-
ments the owners could afford to
rent cheaper, still maintaining a
nice profit, and give the students
a break. I would be the first to
applaud such action. The stu-
dents are an important part of our
oommunity that I, for one, admire
and appreciate.
Very truly yours,
(Mrs.) Tish Byrum, Realtor

Student j condemn parking situation
On June 9, it rained. Being off
campus students, it is necessary
for us to drive to campus. We
parked in front of Memorial Gym
and discovered that what was last
month's day student parking, had
now become staff parking. This
left us with two alternatives;
either we oould go to the lot on
the hill and walk the three tenths
of a mile to our class or we oould
go to the lot behind the Student
Union and walk the six tenths of a
mile to class. Either alternative
left us walking in a downpour.
It is important to point out the
individual reactions to such a
situation. For an institution to
force a student to walk over half a
mile in the rain (or in 15 to 20
degree weather as was the case
this past winter) is the moral
equivalent of saying that said
institution cares not about the
physical, psychological, emotion-
al or social well being of the
students, which in turn is equi-
valent to saying that the insti-
tution oould function without the
students. To not meet human
needs is to reduce those human
beings to less than human status.
This is dehumanizing in its
primary state. We personally feel
that the institution is suggesting
that our needs are unimportant.
As a result of this dehumaniz-
ing process, the individual stu-
dent's education itself suffers. It
obviously suffers when students
don't go to class, but in a broad
way it suffers because the insti-
tution does not oommand respect
of the students. When personal
needs of the students are not
respected, those students have
very real problems trying to foroe
themselves to respect the needs
and requirements of the school.
Now, whenever a sensitive
individual questions the institu-
tion on this parking problem, two
general reactions are heard.
First of all, one reaction says
that the school does not have the
available funds for the necessary
parking facilities and covered
walkways to get the students out
of the rain. This argument in
essence says, "Let them eat
cake The fact is that when an
institutional effort is made for
something necessary (like student
parking) instead of something
unnecessary (like perhaps a
stadium?) this campus com-
munity with support from alumni
oould build a six or ten level
parking lot at Speight and another
one on the hill. The existence of
the present fund drive for the
stadium proves that the funds
oould be available if the com-
munity cared enough.
A second argument to be dealt
with is, generally the comparison
to other schools, a quick rundown
of the problems of N.C. State or
U.N.C. This line of reasoning
suggests not only a oontempt for
ECU but also a misunderstanding
of the operations of the North
Carolina University System.
We feel a certain sense of
shame at having tolerated this
dehumanizing as long as we have
without speaking out. We per-
sonally accept responsibility for
having allowed this process to
continue by passively participat-
ing in it. Though we would like to
see a change, we do not anticipate
it. The faculty, through selective
blindness, has been sufficiently
desensitized to not only tolerate
this process bdt to expect it to
The parking problem repre-
sents a dehumanizing problem,
which in the end result represents
a study of self. Passivity begs
dehumanizaticn. We have all
tolerated it much too long, and we
are somewhat less human as a
result. Now after having cried in
the wilderness, we slip back into
our comfortable passivity. Per-
haps it is true, as has been
suggested, that men die not with
a bang, but a whimper

Senior returns from NASA
29 June 1977 FOUNTAINHEAP frag 5
Bill Hammond of Rocking-
ham, ECU senior foreign
language major, has returned
from the National Aeronautaics
and Space Administration
(NASA) where he worked as a
Cooperative Education student in
theOffioeof International Affairs.
As a Co-op student, Ham-
mond alternated one quarter of
work with NASA with academic
studies here at ECU.
At NASA, Hammond, who
speaks fluend German and some
French, worked with one of 24
divisions as a technical foreign
language person.
"I worked at the Office of
International Affairs. We feal and
negotiate with countries the world
over � especially Europe
Hammond said.
"Much of our work,was with
ESA (European Space Adminis-
tration), the European equivalent
Hammond said the main
duties of the OIA were to "iron
out" oontract difficulties and to
make monetary decisions.
"AsanaidtoMr. John Sakks,
an OIA official, I represented him
in meetings when he wasn't
available Hammond said.
He added that NASA is very
diverse in its activities.
"Lots of things done seem to
be unrelated to'the space pro-
gram. They make meals for the
handicapped the way they do for
astronauts and they make fire-
proof equipment he oontinued.
One of Hammond's most
rewarding work experiences was
his involvement with the U.S.
State Department in aiding flood-
damaged Bangladesh.
I went to the State Depart-
ment fa the first time through
AID, a program which was
working on aiding Bangladesh
after its recent flood damage.
"We aided them with supplies
and finances. By satellite, we
were able to snap photos which
showed how many people were
hurt and the extent of damage in
an area he said.
ECU offers students coopera-
tive study-work arrangements in
several academic areas. Cop-
operative education in institutions
of higher education is a type of
career education which provides
an opportunity for full-time stu-
dents to alternate periods of
academic study with periods of
off-campus employment.

Psychologists survey attitudes toward women
College students' attitudes
regarding the changing roles of
women in modern society was the
subject of a recent survey by ECU
psychologists Rosina C. Lao and
John S. Childers.
The Lao-Childers study was
based on questionnaires sub-
mitted by 171 ECU students of
both sexes, mostly freshmen and
The study revealed several
significant trends:
Males were more liberal than
females in their attitudes toward
new roles for women.
Family background factors
tended to influence students'
attitudes; the higher the family
income and the larger the high
school attended by women stu-
dents, the more conservative
their attitudes tended to be.
Their own mothers' roles did
not seem a significant factor in
the attitudes of the female
students surveyed.
As for male students, their

attitudes toward women seemed
to be largely influenced by
whether or not their mothers had
worked outside the home and the
level of their mothers' education.
The attitudes toward women
of both sexes was negatively
related to how frequently the
responding students attend
"Considerable attention has
been given to changing patterns
of women's roles in present-day
society commented Dr. Lao.
"The grwoing awareness that
women have their own identities
and rights has led to sweeping
legal actions to reduce discrimi-
nation, but more importantly, it
has led to a different attitude
toward women.
"Our study was directed
toward the examination of the
possible effects of the changing
attitudes toward women among a
group of college students in
easter North Carolina
A comparison of the results of
the ECU study with previous
st udies of other groups reveal s " a
very traditional, conservative,
pattern" fa the ECU subjects,
especially for the females.
The trent toward conservatism
may be due to the geographical
location and traditional orienta-
tion of eastern North Carolina,
said Dr. Lao.
Studies of college students'
attitudes toward women's roles
are important as indicators of
"significant future plans" among
the students, relating to family
life and employment patterns,
she said.
Dr. Lao and Childers reported
on their research at the 23rd
annual meeting of the South-
eastern Psychological Association
in Hollywood, Fla.
Other ECU faculty members
appearing on the SEPA program
were Dr. Paul Deardorff, col-
laborator on two studies relating
to the use of videotape in
simulated interviews and Dr.

Artistic merit due
Electronic Hoist
Assistant Trends Editor
In reviewing new recordings
of classical music, nne cannot
review the music per se, because,
by definition, the pieces are
classics; their artistic merit is
indisputable. Rather, the review-
er must address himself to the
question of the conductor's or
musician's interpretation of a
particular piece of music. This is
especially true in the case of Isao
Tomita's recording of Hoist's
symphony "The Planets be-
cause here the music is interpret-
ed electronically, singlehandedly
arranged and performed by
The symphony is divided into
seven movements, each repre-
senting one of the planets known
at the time it was composed
(between 1914 and 1916), ex-
clusive of Earth. Hoist's re-
ference point in composing the
symphony was each planet's
astrological character. These
characters, however, served only
as a point from which to build a
theme for the individual move-
ments. As his daughter once
wrote, "once the underlying idea
had been formulated, he let the
music have its way with him
The first movement, "Mars,
the Bringer of War is martial in
nature. The tone is set in the
opening measures with a brutally
rhythmic pattern, implying the
mechanized relent Iessness of
war. The music is simple, even
primitive, expressing the com-
poser's vision of war as an
instinctive reaction. Tomita chose
to preface this first movement
with a series of radar blips that
approximate a countdown and
subsequent lift-off. The effect is
condescending and cheapens the
album. Tomita redeems himself,
however, by his imaginative use
of a battery of electronic equip-
ment, adding power and strength
to an already awesome work.
In oontrast to the simplicity of
war, "Venus, the Bringer of
Peace is expressed in conplex
terms. Beginning with a solo horn
of unusual tranquility, and fol-
lowed by converging chords of
flutes and oboes, the music
quickly smooths into a lilting
melody of serenity, underscored
by the gentle plucking of harps.
Sinbad not bad
Staff Writer
There is a type of movie you
can enjoy on a rainy Saturday
afternoon in the theater crowded
with noisy children which you
probably would not return to see a
few hours later with the girl from
your nine o'clock philosophy class
who thinks you are "deep Even
though these films cannot be
interpreted as timeless cinematic
statements about the human
condition, the do possess value as
simple entertainment (Especially
when you are buzzing around
Greenville and the only other
movie available in the early when
noon is THE HERETIC).
THE TIGER is one of these
enjoyable forgettable films. It is
not ROBIN HOODand Patrick
Wayne (Sinbad) compares more
favorably with an articulate
cinder block than Errol Flynn, but
it does have colorful costumes,
exotic scenery, an enchanted
prince, a beautiful princess, a
wicked witch and enough
monsters and special effect tricks
to delight even the most discrimi-
nating of ten-year-olds.
SINBAD is a children's
fantasy of mysterious castles and
far away places. Too many of the
movies shown in Greenville in-
volve remotely adult fantasies of
fast cars, sex, violence and
conquering the "system" which
rules them. Because it fails to
make any pretentious or obvious
oomments on society or cater to
the frustrations of people who
find it impossible to inject any
meaning into their lives by any
other means than vicariously
experiencing absurdly contrived
OF THE TIGER should be valued
as a rare gem of film entertain-
ment not to be missed. If you
aren't quick you may miss this
diverting movie. It is being
replaced later this week
by OUTLAW BLUES, a film about
a country songwriter who gets out
of jail in Texas, falls in love, gets
shot, gets chased by police
Tomita's synthesis of the opening
horn is actually more effective
than the genuine instrument,
embuing it with a full, yet stark
tone, lulling the listener into a
state of profound relaxation.
Tomita's electronic counterpart to
a string section performs the
unique task of providing a full
sound without losing the original
beauty of the natural vibrato of a
solo violin.
The third movement, "Mer-
cury, the Winged Messenger is
better suited to Tomita's key-
board synthesizers than the
orchestra it was composed for.
The speed required is difficult
even for the best of orchestras,
making a keyboard of some sort
the logical choice, by way of its
facility for a rapid succession of
notes. This is the shortest of the
seven movements, and the most
typical of Hoist's other works
through its use of contrasting
patterns, in this case the op-
position of two simultaneous keys
and two simultaneous rhythms.
"Jupiter, the Bringer of
Jollity is similar to its pre-
decessor Mercury in that both are
well adapted to keyboard playing.
Both are bright and quick, the
former drawing heavily on
English folk songs.
Tomita's best interpretation is
that of "Saturn, the Bringer of
Old Age This movement pro-
ceeds through a series of events
leading up to an unexpected calm
finish. The piece gives the
impression of defeat, of hollow-
ness in the openino chords. Here

Falconner an impressive script
Before the advent of mass media,
novels were written for the sake and sense of their words. All of
the images in the novel had to be made delicately and slowly, that the
reader might have a picture. There are novels that are termed,
"cinematic which means they are easily adapted to the screen. They
are written, with the material sense in mind. They are left ranging and
vacuous being little more than freely interpreted dialogue. They are
now being written by oome of the finest writers of our time. There is
one that has been on the bestseller list six months. It is written by John
Cheevers and the novel is Falconner.
It is the theatric stay of a man, Farragut, much like Cheevers in
age and appearance, is sent to prison for the second degree murder of
his brother (which means in a fit erf anger or unpremeditated). He is an
alcoholic, a drug addict since W.W.I I and a symbol of Cheevers'
generation. He is mistakenly placed in a block with hard-oore (lifers,
rapists) who turn out to be not so bad, as misunderstood. Falconner is
the name of the prison.
The book is replete and their oolorf ul names (Chicken number two,
Bumpo, Cuckold) each with a sad and poignant story. It is hert, in
the small hist or ies and anect dotes, that Cheevers is most effective. His
creation of the sibling fights, parental mistreatment, - is greatly
imaginative and he is often gentlest when he is lest tender.
It is to Cheevers' detriment that he did not choose to be true to his
genre. Hiswork, at itsbest is remarkably poignant. In Falconner when
Farragut relates, (oratorically) when he is a drug addict, the novel is
Opium-eaters know. The fear of death is for all of us everywhere bi?
for the great intelligence of the opium eater it is beautiTuiiy narrowed
into the crux of drugs.
This concentration is not consistent in the work. The author cheats
in this version which does little more than tell the story sans images.
Watch for the movie Faloonner it may well be a good one.
All books courtesy of Central News and Card Shoo.
The Heretic- Demonic possession gets yet another opportunity to bore
you in this sequel to The Exorcist. An all-star cast induding Richard
Burton, Linda Blair, Max Von Sydow, James Earl Jones and Louise
Fletcher is used to explain why there ever was an original Exorcist
movie. If you must go and see this film be advised that you are only
encouraging the producers to make another of these grandiose bombs.
If you are lucky there will not be any breaks in the film and you will be
able to leave the theater in time to get home and watch The Munsters.
It's time to tie the tubular bells. Two stars for the photography.
Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo - From the people that gave us Bambi,
Fantasia, comes another of those ridiculous movies about a
Volkswagen capable of intelligent thought. (In many cases more
intelligent than the Co-stars Dean Jones and Helen Hayws.( It is not
funny, though intended to be slapstick, much of stunts are done with
photography. It is another sequel gone sour. One star.
The Deep - The photography, particularly the footage of Jacqueline
Bissett is the longest wet t-shirt contest in history. The plot is
ridiculous as a young couple vacationing in the Bahamas stumble upon
a sunken treasure, and 3 million dollars worth of bottle morphine.
There's a monster here and there along with the Captain (Robert Shaw)
of the last Benchly Water story, Jaws. This is still more oontrived than
its predecessor which contained a mechanical shark. Two stars, both
for Jackie's.
Final Chapter: Walking Tall - The poster for 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 is a 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
production excellent.

Last week "Up Front" took
the stage. They are an extremely
talented and versatile trio with
their instruments including flute,
conga drums, acoustic and elec-
tric guitar, electric bass, Roto-
tom drums, electric piano and
After doing a few rock flavor-
ed numbers and suitably impress-
ing the audience with their skill,
the group introduced their female
vocalist. Adele Foster. She began
with Stevie Wonder's "All's Fair
in Love a dieamy legato piece
which she handled with a grace
evocative of Bette Midler in her
softer moments, or perhaps
Streisand. She was attired in
black open-toed heels, and a
creamy orange three-quarter
length dress vented to the knee.
Large crescent-moon earrings
dangled in her jet hair. This
young woman proceeded to make
magic entertainment.
The songs were basically pop
done as jazz although some of
them were changed only slightly.
In Mitchell's "I Am a Woman"
and "Coyote" Miss Foster suc-
cessfully imitated the song-
writer's singing style (no easy
accomplishment) and intrigued
the audience with her intelligent
interpretation of the songi' lyrics.
What she lacks in range she
more than makes up for in
interpretation. Her voice is very
smooth and full, one is almost
tempted to say rich, and she
never makes the unpardonable
mistake of being too loud. She
possesses an uncommon feeling
for jazz which is evinced in her
performance. After doing
"Saturn" and "Another Star"
from the album Songs From the
Key of Life" Miss Foster left the
stage. She sat at a table sipping
warm water and appeared com-
pletely ensconced by the music.
The group closed the evening
witha truly exciting jazz version of
Wonder's "For Once in My
Life It is a song rich with
rhythmic possibility and Miss
Foster realized much of it. Her
verve and understated dynam-
ism, enhanced by her tonal and
rhythmic precision, made the
song probably the high point of
the night.
The Bottomline is one of the
few bistros downtown where
waitresses actually come to the
table. It seems their art is dying
in most drinking places here. If
you enjoy the viler stimulants you
can brownbag. Wednesday and
Thursday nights jazz predomi-
nates and as of yet the manage-
ment has shown no lack of taste in
selecting the entertainment. Jazz
cognoscenti need languish no
longer in their rooms over Bill
Evans records. Ahhh, at long last
the moderately modulated has
made it to G'ville.

with our family, those with whom
we share fundamental ways of
looking at life and attitudes which
subsume more superficial dif-
Sometimes it is difficult to
recognize the basic similarities
we have with our parents, be-
cause while we have been dwell-
ing in the rarefied air of aca-
demia, with its at least implicit
emphasis on liberality, they have
in most cases continued to work at
positions that they have occupied
for years. For instance, my father
is a product of a South in which
there were definite values and
priorities. By our generation's
standards he would be called a
bigot, but earlier more condoned
and even propagated attitudes
such as his. Even though it makes
me wince to admit it, were I born
about fifty years earlier he and I
would probably share the same
opinions that we disagree upon
now. Also, my lack of formalized
religious beliefs is a source of
constant anxiety for my mother,
even though our opinions of what
is "good and "bad' upon
examination turn out to be more
than remarkably similar.
Going back home for awhile
fofers other insights as well,
especially if one has been away
for some time. The kid who used
to ride up and down the street
doing wheelies on his bicycle, I
learn, is now an Army corporal
and the little girl who used to
plague me on the school bus has
just had her second baby. We
forget, that while we have been
getting older and changing ac-
cordingly, so have all those other
young people who once populated
our childhood. Usually we are
surprised and a little unsettled to
find that what a person has grown
to be differs greatly from our now
out-dated images of them.
Younger brothers and sisters,
whom we remember as just
children, are now having the
same sort of adolescent pressures
and pleasures that we once had.
Though we might try to distill our
experiences into some sort of
advice which would benefit them,
the words, when and if they
come, are disappointingly trite,
and sound more like the sug-
gestions and admonishments that
our parents gave us, than we
would like to admit.
The saddest aspects of visiting
our families after an extended
absence is that of finding our
parents visibly aged. One never
thinks of his parents as being
really "old Yet I notivethat my
father's mustache is greyer than I
remember, and that my mother's
eyes are slightly more edged with
lines. I shudder at visions of their
senility even though I know that it
is part of the ancient, perrenial
human cycle.
Every son and daughter must
sometime take the awkward and
often painful steps away from the
family. These steps may be as
violent as running away from
home or as subtle as an aversion
of eyes. Still, it is as necessary to
win and maintain a respectful
independence as it is to recognize
the fundamental ties which, try as
we might, simply cannot be
broken. We are basically what our
parents have made us, though we
be very different from them.
College is for many the step from
post-adolescence to young adult-
hood. Ah, the chance at last, to
live out from under the parental
roof. Still,if the life-style chosen
by the young man or woman is
different than that of his or her
parents, the values reflected by
their life-styles are the same.
Thomas Wolfe's perspicacity
in saying you can't go home again
cannot be doubted. Yet, if that
now cliche dictum is true, it is
equally as important to remember
that you can never really leave.

Recently FM radio station
WRQR changed its musical for-

computer system which totally

Station manager Gene
Graham did not wish to discuss

he decision to change WRQR's

that although during the first
week after the change the initial
response to the change had been
unfavorable. The result since that
time Graham said has been
an overwhelmingly positive
reaction to the change from
listeners as well as advertisers.
Sources from within WRQR
indicate that the change was
brought about as a result of a
need to acquire new sources of ad
revenue. Despite being ranked as
the overwhelming No. 1 station
among 18-35 year olds in a recent
local poll. WRQR was having
problems selling advertisement

Tomita's fault here is in being too

out of place chime tune, destroy-
ing Hoist's effect of drifting

Tomita's interpretation as a
whole is good. Though many of
the passages lack unity, and too
often Tomita indulges himself by
showing off hisgadgetry, he stays
close to the original score, adding
a unique Japanese flavor to many
pieces through his sue of sounds

go on to say that certain mer-
chants refused to advertise on
WRQR because they disliked the
music and what they perceived as
the "drug element which was
attracted by it. So in an effort to
gain the business of new ad-
vertisers the format was changed
to one of a more "acceptable"
Mike Robinson, of Floyd G.
Robinson's Discount Jewelers,
explained that his business would
no longer advertise on WRQR
because its format is duplicated
on another more powerful station
as well as numerous other
available radio stations. Robinson
said he experienced "good re-
sults with the old format" which
was unique for this area.
Frank Ferree of Apple Re-
cords stated that his store would
continue to advertise on WRQR
but at a reduced rate. Ferree was
satisfied with the old format and
felt that it was "ridiculous fa
them to change As of now all of
Apple Records advertising comes
on after eight P.M. when live
announcers return to the air.
Despite station manager
Graham's assurances that the
overall response to WRQR's
format has been positive there are
indications that there may be a
strong negative feeling as well.
Station announcer and program
director Allan Handleman has
taken his weekly radio talk show,
Forum, off the air because of
bad listener response.
Frank Ferree said that he had
encountered absolutely no posi-
tive reaction among any of his
store's customers. Some people
had come in with a petition to
save the old format. This also
happened two years ago accord-
ing to Ferree when there was a
successful drive to save WRQR
from changing its format.
During that drive WRQR
received over 10,000 letters and
petitions against any change in
the music format.

New UNC policy
UNC too stubborn
Since letting the cat out of the bag last week, the University of
North Carolina has been hit by sports editorials throughout the state's
newspapers saying that they have enough money and don't have to
worry about playing a big in-state rivalry with East Carolina in football.
But the real reason behind the new policy not to schedule in-state
schools in football (other than conference teams) is that the Tar Heels
cannot afford to lose too many games to lowly East Carolina.
There will be four more games, starting in 1978 and running
through 1981 But after that, Bill Cobey. UNC's athletic director,
indicated that the Tar Heels would not play East Carolina.
Carolina just has too much pride and is too stubborn to accept East
Carol ma as their equal in football. And they want to deprive the sports
fans of North Carolina of the game they want to see. There was a
sellout of 49.000 for last year's game; but. if they had been a stadium of
60.000 a 65,000, the game would still have been a sellout.
There are many reasons fa the suspension of the series that are
under the surface. One is that Bill Dooley, head football coach of the
Tar Heels, sees the fact that East Carolina can make a break a coach's
job. There was talk that his job was on the line last year when the two
schools met after the Tar Heels had come off a losing season. There are
also rumors to the effect that N.C. State's Bo Rein and Duke's Mike
McGee are facing must-win situations against East Carolina next
season. It is said that loss by either coach could cost him his job.
Another is that members of the Rams Club, North Carolina's
athletic scholarship fund, have probably been putting pressure on the
athletic director to get East Carolina off the schedule since the Pirates
shot the Tar Heels down 38-17 two years ago. The Rams Club, which
raises over a million dollars annually fa scholarships fa UNC athletes,
has many coitributasthat give thousands of dollars. If enough of these
members band together and threaten to pull their contributions out of
the Rams Club, this will put pressure on officials to rid themselves of
the embarrassment of losing to East Carolina.
This is not the first instance of Carolina bowing out of athletic
competition to save face. The Nath Carolina Collegiate Wrestling
Tournament was started in 1969-70 and the Pirates won it fa six
straight years befae team scamg was dropped in 1975-76. This past
season the tournament was disbanded and replaced by the Nath
Carolina Invitational. It has been the state collegiate championship
tournament fa six years and ECU had won each year. But the
embarrassment caused to State and Carolina was unbearable.
In track, state collegiate meets have been going on fa years in
surrounding states, but not in Nath Carolina. This reason fa this
could be that Nath Carolina Central University, a predominantly black
institution in Durham, would have run away (no pun intended) with
the title in the early 70s, and that East Carolina and Pembroke State
would have been favaed in the past three years.
Contrary to the belief of many sports writers (many who graduated
from the Blue Heaven), the real losers in this bout will be the football
fans of the state of Nath Carolina.
The man on the street that spends eight dollars each on Saturday
fa himself and his family to see good maja college football action is
the big loser And this man will not pay eight dollars to see Carolina
tip-toe through a 12-0 win over Nathwestern.
Carolina has opened the proverbial Pandaa's Box, and with public
opinion going against them, all they'll find will be a box of termites to
duli the pale blue in Chapel Hill.
Pete Conaty, all-conference in both football and baseball this
season fa East Carolina, was beaten by The Citadel's Brian Ruff fa
the Athlete-of-the-Year honas in the Southern Conference recently.
This marks the second straight year the all-America has attained
the hona.
Caiaty was ranked high in several categaiesin the NCAA statistics
during the football season and was a star pitcher on the Pirates'
baseball team.
Ruff nudged out Conaty by a 20-17 margin. This can be attributed
to a couple of things. One, since East Carolina is getting out of the
conference, the writers did not want the Pi-ates to take all the honas
after winning five league championships and the Conmissiaier' s Cup.
The other is that the press in Nath Carolina has not taken part in
covering the Southern Conference fa years. There are very few voting
members of the Southern Conference Media Association from this
will dr
� If
The game that has become one of the biggest
rivalries in the state in football will be no mae after
East Carolina and Nath Carolina, which started
playing each other in 1972 and have had some
intense games, will end their series after four mae
games, starting in 1978.
The University of North Carolina Athletic
Council adopted a policy which was announced
Thursday by their athletic directa, Bill Cobey, to
The Daily Reflector.
"We've met with the Athletic Council about
scheduling in-state opponents fa football Cobey
said. "And instead of being in a position to say yest
to one school who wants to play us and no to
another, we've decided not to pursue schedules with
anyone other than Duke, Wake Faest and N.C.
"We will hoia all existing contracts, however.
Our football schedule is full through 1988 and it only
includes four games with East Carolina
East Carolinaathleticdirecta, Bill Cain, said his
initial reaction after Cobey told him of the Athletic
Council's decision was one of "shock and dismay
"East Carolina University has paid its dues to
the University of Nath Carolina, both on the field
and in the stands Cain said. "We have provided
them with a fine rivalry on the field each year and
helped them fill their stands.
"Thisaction will be depriving the citizens of this
stateagreat rivalry between twogreat institutions
Last season, the Tar Heels beat East Carolina
12-10 in a defensive battle befae 49.000 people in
Kenan Stadium. Nath Carolina holds a 3-1 lead in
the series which began in 1972. They took victaies
in 1972. 42-17, befae 31.600 fans and in 1973.
28-27. befae 41.500 people. The Pirates only win
came in 1975 by a 38-17 margin befae 42.000 fans.
Pat Dye. Pirate head football coach, was baffled
hy the move.
"I just can't believe it Dye stated. "We go to
Chapel Hill and fill their stands and have a
tremendous in-state rivalry there.
Last year's was a great oollege football game
after hearing that Carolina had made a policy not to
schedule in-state non-conference foes in football.
"I JUST CAN'T BELIEVE was head football
coach Pat Dye's first comment after hearing that the
University of North Carolina had dropped East
Carolina in football after 1981.
and I feel the next four will be. I certainly think we'll
have sellouts. If they can aeate a better show fa
their fans with someone else, then I don't blame
them. But I don't believe they can do it.
Cobey said that the new policy was not pointed at
anyone, in particular.
"Appalachian State, fa instance, has asked if
we had an open date to please consider them. We
find it difficult to say yes to one school and no to
Cobey added, "East Carolina has helped us out
when we needed games, which we are grateful fa
And I feel their football program has gained pretig�
by playing us.
Dye still objected, saying that N.C. State play,
ECU but not Appalachian, while Wake Faest and
Appalachian have a rivalry going.
"I don't know who is responsible fa this, Dye
oontinued. "But I think East Carolina playing Nath
Carolina is mae important than one individual�m
Bill Dooley, a Bill Cobey.
And if I was at an institution like Nath ,
Carolina, with itstraditioi and resources. I wouldn't
be threatened by the growth of a school like East
Carolina. It's a game that needs to be played, not
one settled by a group of people sitting around and
marking it off with a pencil
Cobey added that Nath Carolina has not played
an in-state opponent in basketball in 20 years,
except in playoffs and conference foes.
"We haven't favaed one school over the other in
basketball and I think people have been appreciative
of the fact that we've treated everyone fairly
With four mae games scheduled befae the
prohibition, Dye should have no trouble getting the
Pirates up' to play the Tar Heels.
