Warren to form committee
Lighting makes headway
News Editor
An SGA project to have more
lighting installed near the
women's dorms and to correct
faulty lighting on campus is
making headway, according to
Reed Warren, SGA vice-
Warren conferred recently
with Vice-Chancellor for Business
Affairs Cliff Moore about the
lighting situation.
"He's very interested, and is
more than willing to help us with
this problem said Warren.
Warren is in the process of
organizing a committee to stake
areas where lighting is needed
the most.
Some trees block the lighting,
said Warren, and steps will be
taken to eliminate the problem.
Warren said electrical work is
being done on some women's
dorms now, but work on the
lighting should begin in early fall.
"The lighting will be very
expensive, but it is necessary
said Warren.
Warren said the lighting will
not be SGA-funded.
"I think we will continue to
get positive responses from the
administration if our requests are
reasonable and if we understand
the problem of limited funds
said Warren.
"I'm very, very pleased with
the response we received
Selection committee convenes
The IVY in the courtyard of Fleming dorm tells the tale of what
began yesterday, rains. Pitt County was one of several in the state
that was declared a disaster area last week by Gov. Jim Hunt. This
precipitation is probably too late to assist local crops sufficiently,
but it did help to cool things down. The photo was shot in

Members of various ECU
departments and community or-
ganizations addressed the Chan-
cellor Selection Committee, last
Saturday, suggesting that some-
one who is capable of handling
the interior and exterior needs of
the university be chosen as Dr.
Leo Jenkins' successor.
Among those adaressing the
committee was Dr. John C.
Atkinson, Assistant Dean of the
History Department, who com-
plimented Jenkins' effectiveness
in increasing enrollment.
Atkinson stressed a need for a
chancellor that will work with the

sity he said, pointing out that
the training of ECU students is
the primary duty of the university
and of the faculty.
He should be willing to work
with the Continuing Education
programs that aid in the edu-
cation of the community at large,
Middleton said.
The next chancellor should be
one who will promote scholarship
and achievement, said Dr.
Rodney Schmidt, Director of the
Music Faculty.
"The arts provide meaning
and enjoyment of life he
The committee and the de-
partment representatives all
agreed that the new chancel la
should possess personal char-
acteristics of faith in people,
aggressiveness, tact, authority,
and skill in intellectual leadership
as opposed to power.
Dr. Clinton Prewitt, the com-
mittee's Executive Secretary, as-
sured the representatives that the
committee members would be
attentive to their opinions in
selecting the best possible candi-
date to lead the university.

in the orientation issue of FOUNTAINHEAD should send their

NEW YORK (LNS)-When the lights went off on New York's chic
Upper East Side the night of July 13, many residents worried when the
air-conditioning would go back on.
Patrons at elegant Manhattan restaurants may have decided their
dinners were ruined, but waiters in many continued to serve by
The next day, as all of New York City waited for the electricity to
come back on, radio stations began to broadcast warnings to those with
freezers full of food.
In Harlem, the south Bronx, the Bushwiok and Bedford Stuyvesant
sections of Brooklyn, however, the story ran differently.
Most residents were outside on the sidewalks in the muggy
86-degree weather to escape from even hotter apartments.
Within minutes of the blackout, residents began to hear the sound
of shattering glass and the wail of police sirens. What followed for the
next 24 hours depends on who you ask or what you read.
The New York Post ran the headline: "24 Hours of Terror
Newsweek sent out a dozen photographers to produce its first all-color
ooverage of a breaking news story and wrote: "They're coming across
Bushwiok Avenue like buffalo
Mayor Abe Beame, in the midst of a re-election campaign, called
the people arrested, "animals
Residents in the poor, mostly black and Puerto Rican
neighborhoods, describe it differently. Several people described the
atmosphere as "festive and as "Christmas in the summer
Another person explained that people without enough food were
taking what they needed.
A black storeowner in Brooklyn who was looted explained,
"Everybody stepped into the television commercials for a few hours
and took what they wanted
He explained that he was more angry at Chemical Bank, which had
refused him business loans and had contributed to the poor economic
condition of the area.
In some neighborhoods, selected stores and food chains were hit.
In other areas, rows of stores were ripped open.
The more brave ripped the gates of stores with crowbars. Others
entered later to pick through the remains.
Thousand others simply stood on the streets and watched the
unprecedented spectacle.
Police poured into the looted areas. Many of the police who arrived
in Harlem had been off-duty, and came in civilian clothes carrying
baseball bats.
Sweep arrests were ordered by the Police Commissioner.
Altogether, nearly 4,000 people were jailed-the largest number n a
single day in the city's history.
People breaking into stores weren't the only ones arrested. A
resident in Harlem, for instance, described how a whole block was
closed off by police and everyone arrested.
One woman, a secretary for the Veteran's Administration, said she
was arrested with a friend as she crossed upper Broadway on her way
home that night.
Five days after the arrests, at least 500 prisoners were still behind
bars awaiting arraignment.
At least one prisoner died in the Brooklyn House of Detention. (The
corones report listed the cause of death as liver disease but the
prisoner's family disputes this claim.)
Released prisoners and lawyers described 100 degree temperatures
and jammed conditions inside the jails.
A section of the Men's House of Detention, or the "Tombs" prison,
was reopened and prisoners were crowded together into single cells.
The Tombs was closed by the order of a federal judge several years
ago because of the inhumane conditions.

Page 2 FOUNTAINHEAD 27 July 1977
The review of Star Wars
which appears in the last two
issues of FOUNTAINHEAD is, I
feel, so unjustifiably negative that
a second and more favorable
opinion is needed.
It is true that Star Wars
magic and popularity does not
derive either from its plot,
characterization, or profound
meaning. It is simply fun and as
such provides two hours of escape
from the harsh realities of every-
day living. It is an escape
everyone needs; the escape into a
fairyland where Absolute Good
meets Absolute Evil and actually
wins! A movie which gives so
much pleasure should not be
tossed off lightly simply because
it lacks intellectual depth. A
steady diet of highly intellectual
and pragmatic activities must be
tempered with an exposure to the
frivolous and more idealistic or
one's balance will eventually be
Star Wars falls into this
second category and ranks high
within it.
Certainly there will be sequels
and other movies capitalizing on
this movie's popularity. But
Star Wars should not be
condemned because of this pop-
ularity, or the others ill consider-
ed because they will be followers.
Each must be judged in the light
of its own merits and in the spirit
in which it was undertaken.
Star Wars definitely merits
four sta s.

Friday sends HEW Reader challenges Star Wars review
back to court
William C. Friday, president of the greater Uni-
versity of North Carolina, has sent HEW back to the
drawing board.
When the notorious federal agency handed down
its new desegregation guidelines, it managed to
sneak in a section which would give itself the
authority of prior approval over major changes in the
university system.
But HEW was not quite cunning enough to slip
this by the watchful eye of at least one man who is
attempting to pry loose the federal grip on higher
education. Friday immediately retorted that this
section "is one we cannot accept" (N&O, July 21).
A university cannot operate effectively or meet
the needs of its students and constituents efficiently
under HEW's austere approval or disapproval in its
policy making, and Pres. Friday knew this. A
sluggish mechanism anyway, this act would only
further add to the melee of federal red tape already
weighing down the university's attempts at
affirmative actions in all spheres.
The basic objective of these guidelines is certainly
excellent: to get more black students into the UNC
system. But, as Friday said, "Educational judgement
ought to be exercised by the university .there can be
noexception to that If this right is withdrawn from
the university any further, higher education in North
Carolina will become nothing more than a
conglomerate of marionettes whose strings rest in
federal hands.
HEW does play a vital role in the long-range
results of desegregation for the university. Afterall,
someone had to get the integration ball rolling. But
university policy making is not, or should not be,
within its administrative and bureaucratic domain. A
federal agency, no matter how good its intentions,
cannot know the unique stumbling blocks of the
individual university systems, stumbling blocks
which can only be surmounted through careful
knowledge and sensitive handling of the particular
local needs, fears, even hostilities and degrees of
racial prejudices and problems.
So HEW is going back to court to strike this prior
control section out of the guidelines, thanks to Pres.
The federal government must not be allowed to
tamper with the university's right to make its own
educational policies and decisions, and it is going to
take more strong men and women, like Friday, to see
that this does not happen.

Crowned Heads dethroned

Staff Writer
Thomas Tryon's new novel,
Crowned Heads, deals with a
well-worn topic, the false aura of
Hollywood. The novel is divided
into four sections, each one
devoted to a "star" of the
Hollywood era. Tryon recounts
ths livss of his "stars three of
which end in death. In one novel,
Tryon manages to symbolize the
farcity of life, religion, sex, and
moral ethics. The result is a very
crowded book, lacking unity and
direction, which fails tonake any
meaningful statement. Tryon at-
tacks the emphasis man places on
religion, sex, and ethics (without
offering another vehide for man's
faith and self-expression).
The characters of Crowned
Hdads all came in contact at
various points in their respective
careers; however, the connections
between them are very loose and
almost circumstantial. None of
the main characters play an
important role in any other
character's life. There is no
interaction among Tryon's char-
acters. His novel consists of four
separate stories revolving around
four-Hollywood personalities.
The most impressive section is

the first, titled "Fedora This
story seems the most intricate
and well developed. With more
detail and a different method of
presentation, the "Fodora" story
could possibly have stood alone as
a oomplete work. The next three
sections, however, fail to reach
the level of "Fedora The
ghastly ruin and subsequent
deaths of two characters com-
pletely debase the human animal
of any vesture of honor, pride,
reason, or faith in any oonoeived
Tryon seems to want his
characters to represent what
Hollywood, i.e. the world, and
success has done to them.
Through his work, however,
Tryon succeeds in showing that
what his characters become is
simply a reflection of what they
have always been. Fedora loses
her beauty by her own vanity, and
in the same manner, sells her
birthright to the theatre. Lorna
uses her body to pave the way for
her inner-self. Unfortunately,
that inner-self never emerges,
and she dies ii the most
grotesque and debasing sexual
symbolism imaginable. Bobbitt's
unbelievable comeback is just
that, unbelievable. This fairy-tale
story with a fairy-tale ending is
completely unbelievable in con-
trast to the deception and far Jty
dominant throughout the novel.
Willie is the most depressing and
the most obvious fake of them all.
The "grand old man" of Holly-
wood is caught in the act,
revealed in the midst of his fake
chapel filled with fake artifacts,
dying for a faith he doesn't
believe in, defending the fake
replica of an expensive posses-
sion, revealing, finally, the farce
his entire life has been.
Crowned Heads is a depress-
ing novel about people who are
unable to successfully and hap-
pily manage their lives. While
Tryon's character development is
very successful, the situations he
creates for his characters are not
always pleasant, believable, or

Bucs eye second spot with wins
Sports Editor
East Carolina's summer
league baseball team bounced
back last week with the bats to
bang out three wins without a loss
to pull within a game of second-
place Louisburg.
The Pirates whipped Camp-
bell 9-5 last Wednesday night,
then beat Atlantic Christian
15-11 in 10 innings Friday night in
Tarboro. On Saturday, ECU
traveled to Wilmington and
walloped the Seahawks 14-2.
The wins upped the Pirates'
record to 15-11 on the season, one
game behind Louisburg, who is
15-9. The Pirates face the Hurri-
canes in two games Friday night
that could decide second place in
the league.
Mickey Britt broke a personal
four-game losing streak in this
game to raise his mark to 6-5. He
pitched seven innings and gave
up but five hits. Lee Cherry
picked up the save in relief,
coming in at the start of the
eighth inning and preserving
Britt's win.
Pete Paradossi led the Pirates
at the bat with two hits in three
trips, including his fourth homer
in as many games. Eddie Gates
also homered in getting two hits.
Tommy Warrick had three singles
also for the Pirates.
Max Mann had a two run
homer for the Carnals.
Carolina made ten errors in the
game, which could possibly be a
summer league record.
Billy Davis gave up ten runs in
seven and two-thirds innings, but
none were earned by the Bull-
dogs' bats. Lee Cherry came on in
relief and got the win, pitching
the eighth and ninth innings
before giving way to Billy
Williamson in the tenth. William-
son got the save.
Bobby Supel was the big man
at the bat for the Pirates, getting
three hits in four trips to the
Robert Brinkley added three
hits, while Styons and Warrick
added two apiece. Robin Rose led
the Bulldogs with two hits.
East Carolina banged out 18
hits on five Seahawk pitchers in
giving Williamson histhird win of
the season, against one loss.
Paradossi and Maoon Moye had
four hits each to pace the Pirates,
while Supel continued his hot RBI
streak with five. Three of his
RBIs came on a home run.
Brinkley added three hits and
Styons two.
Williamson gave up but five
hits in h rven innings. Marty
Verner came on in the eighth to
pitch the final two innings.
