New CjB center
to aid disabled
Associated Press Writer
Central, one of Atlanta's newest
CB stations, is becoming one of
its most popular, too.
Located in the Shepherd
Spinal Center at West Paces
Ferry Hospital, it was set up to
help paralyzed patients over-
come the feeling they have lost
touch with the world because of
their disabilities.
They have been calling in
to talk to the patients Leslie
Hudson, the center coordinator,
saia n a telephone interview.
The center's base station
and antenna were donated
through the CB Broadcasters
Association, whose members
installed the equipment.
Dr. David Apple, the cent-
er's medical director, said the
CB program is designed to
provide two basic services: One
is the utilitarian and safety uses
of CB radio after the patients
are released.
"If you or I get aflat tire on
the highway, we stop and fix
it Apple said. "But a para-
plegic has no way to do this and
through use of CB we give them
a way to get help
The other is theraputic, to
help patients to overoome the
emotional trauma of limited
mobility by expanding their
Apple said the program
could have more uses.
We don't know what the
parameters may be he said.

It is generally true that all too many of us never realize the
value of something we have, until we lose it.
But when that something is lost, what do you do then? Do you
lose hope9 Do you manage to cope? How do you live your life?
This is what one person discovered about the way some ECU
students must live and what they do.
One day you wake and exerdse nimbly; the next day it is an
exercise just to get out of bed. On day you walked to dass; the next
day you're chairbound.
Your legs were useful once; now they have lost their
usefulness. Musdes have forgotten how to respond, long
forgotten the meaning of numbness.
Little things are now tedious big things.
So it goesyou wheel yourself around the house, around
campus, around town. You are different; the world is different.
You are the same; the world is the same.

"This statement has been endorsed by the National Easter

"But architedural planning that will permit "free use of the

people differ and what may help one person may sometimes
hinder another, rearrangement will be perfect for people of every

"Therefore, there is a limit to what legislation can do.
However, an understanding of the needs of the disabled should

the past (From page 13 of Buildings Without Barriers for the
Most people lump all disabled students into one group. They
are stereotyped collectively. No one realizes that each person is an
individual. No one sees the person said Marty Blee, a resident
of Slay dorm, where most disabled students live.

budget cut
Assistant News Editor
The chancellor of ECU. Dr.
Thomas Brewer, was critical of
the State Advisory Budget Com-
mission' s plan to cut equipment
requests during the next two
years by 25 percent. The plan,
as handed down through the
general administration, would
affed all state agendes, begin-
ning on July 1, 1979.
Brewer's remarks came dur-
ing a speech that he gave beta
the faculty on last Tuesday.
Brewer went on to say that
the University would have in-
creasing difficulty obtaining ne-
eded equipment and space
because of the cuts in spending.
According to a report pub-
lished in the Raleigh News and
Observer on August 30, Brewer
also said that, "This shortsight-
nesswill have a major impact on
the delivery of quality servioe to
the people of the state
Aooording to the same re-
port, the chancellor reported on
an additional $88,000 in univer-
sity funds fa faculty research
and support in the fiscal year
1978-79. This amount was near-
ly five times the amount allo-
cated fa research last year.
On a different subjed, Dr.
Brewer aitidzed the policy of
the state as it pertains tc
discrepandes in salaries of
faculty members among state
suppated institution
He told the faculty that
salaries here were lower thatn
aher state schools that lack the
maturity and educational
standing of ECU
When oontaded Dr.
Brewer did not know why the
salaries were lower, commen-
ting further that he had not been
here long enough to analyze the
situation. In his speech befae
the faculty, he promised support
fa salary hikes by saying,
"While I cannot promise suc-
cess in this area, I assure you
that it will be kept befae the
system administration and the
Brewer also has presemed a
proposal fa changes in the
administration to the trustees,
faculty, and staff. He pledged
full discussion befae any dec-
sioi is made.
Under the proposal. two
positions would be abolished.
Thepositionsof vice chanceilas
fa administratiai and planning
and health affairs would be
replaced with vice chanceilas
fa student affairs and institu-
tional advancement.
He said that the proposed
changes would be made in an
effat to obtain greater suppat
fran private souroes.
He ended his speech by
pledging openness in the ad-
ministration, and in the free
discussion of poiides.
He was quoted in the News
and Observer assaying, "Poli-
tics may be a legitimate way of
life in some spheres, but in a
university, it is destrudive and
leads to ill feelings and barriers
to trust "

Brewer ignores media
ECU Chancel la Thomas Brewer apparent-
ly has little regard for campus media, at least
judging from his recent behavior towards
This past summer, he created a brief stir
when he voiced approval for hiring a
professional manager of WECU-FM. Many
students viewed this as an attempt at
censorship or faculty control and expressed
themselves in angry letters to FOUNTAIN-
Dr. Brewer devoted his first working day at
ECU to area media, inviting all local and
regional radio, TV stations, newspapers,
magazines, etc. The fact that FOUNTAIN-
HEAD was never informed of this day, and in
fact heard about it afterwards on the evening
news, can only be interpreted as a slap in the
face of the students who write the paper and
those who read it.
And, most recently, Brewer addressed the
faculty Tuesday and criticized an order by the
state Advisory Budget Commission. The
News and Observer was apparently notified of
this address, because that's where FOUNT
AINHEAD first heard about it, the day after it
We are eager to know and cooperate with
our new chancellor if only he will play fair and
do the same.
Get out the vote
Once again, the annual Student
Government Association (SGA) fall elections
are fast approaching. Filing begins this week
and continues until Sept. 5. The election is
scheduled for Sept. 13.
Our SGA is only as good as the people who
choose to run for office. They wi 11 be entrusted
with close to $150,000 of student fees to
allocate as they see fit. The more candidates
there are, the better the chance that the best
will be elected by the students. Most
importantly, however, is the necessity of
voting during the fall election.
According to SGA president Tommy Joe
Payne, SGA elections usually average 2,500
voters, less than one fourth the student body.
If you don't feel as if you can or would like to
get involved in SGA, the least you can do is to
vote in the elections. It only takes a minute of
your time and it can make the difference
between the wise and wasteful use of our
student fees.
Student recalls past days

In retrospect, the fact that
we lived on third floor Jones-in
a place called "Stagger Hall
no less-became some sort of
casuality in itself. The omens
were there: trash cans burning
in the hallways, MSO's thrown
out the windows, the reek of
strawberry incense and pot
fumes. We lived with the
continuous cacophony of 500-
odd fulltime hedonists in full
flight. Jones was Edge City that
year. And we were too close to
see it.
I'm not trying to pass a
human failure off on the envi-
ronment that surrounded us.
Far from it-we were flawed
from the beginning. Life on
Stagger Hall just made the
backslide a little easier. Of the
six comrades, only I alone am

time he was a sensitive, intelli-

He loved to destroy things,

proceeded to annihilate our

trash can and kicked garbage
everywhere. He ripped the seat
off one of the Johns. He relieved
himself on the floor. The last
thing he did was tear the door
off the middle stall, throw it
across his back, lug it down the
hall, and fling it out the third
floor window.
Everybody on the hall heard
it hit. When we looked out into

plain view�lying on top of a
brand new white LTD. It looked
like the whole roof had been
smashed in.
The campus police were
there in about thirty aeoodds
but by then Lee was barricaded
in his room. There was nothing
to indicate where the flying door
had come from. Everything was
cool until somebody standing at
the window got excited and hit
one of the cops in the face with a
roll of toilet paper. Pretty soon
we had more oops on Stagger
Hall than we really cared for.
They took a oouple of the
wrong guys down to the traffic
station for interrogation. Evi-
dently one of them cracked,
because the cops were back at
5 30 that morning to arrest Lee.
By the time were were up for
8 fiO exams the campus authori-
ties had turned Lee over to the
city police, and he was being
held downtown under $500
All of us were broke.

into Greenville and bailed his
son out that afternoon.
Our hall advisor was one of
those wimps who couldn't resist
saying "I told you so After
missing his first two exams, Lee
decided that he wasn't really
college material, anyway, which
was just as well, because the
college had decided the same
about him. They threw him out
of school and pressed charges.
They wanted their money fa the
door. The guy who owned the
LTD settled out of court.
Lee blamed the whole thing
on living in Jones.
He's working as a stockboy

load his Camaro the day he
moved out, wondering all the
while what would happen that
summer to prevent me from
coming back to ECU. It seemed
a little inoonsistant that I should

Welcome' to ECU
Dear Freshmen:
Welcome to ECU! How
many times have you heard that
phrase since you've arrived in

many probably. But do you feel
welcome? Probably not. Drop-
Add lines, aggressive - upper
classmen, overcrowded class-
rooms, and the unbearable heat
are enough to make you want to
pack your things and go back
You riaveto be the aggressor
and look 6ut icr yourself totally.
Below, I have oompiled a few
tips that may help you a little to
avoid some unpleasant times. I
hope that they are of some value
to you no matter how small.
1. Aever forget your ID and
Activity Card, you are a nobody
without it.
2. Always lock your dorm
room, even if it is just to go to
the bathroom. Sad but true.
3. Learn' to hold on to your
dorm key. Getting locked out is
a humiliating and time con-
suming experience.
4. Buy some ear plugs if you
plan to study in the dorm.
Stereo competition, televisions,
and loud talkers are hard to
compete with. Use the library
whenever possible.
5. Avoid the Infirmary at
exam time, you'll be lucky to see
a doctor due to the crowd of
ailing students.
6. If you are a female, plan
on having someone walk with
you back to the dorm if its after
hours. It may be a long wait I
be let in, especially in the wirie
time. Dress accordingly.
7.Have a can of RAID handy
at all times unless you plan on
sharing your snack with the
8. Always have access to
your umbrella. It's April show-
ers in Greenville all year round.
9. Use the stairs in the dorm
unless you are very patient and
don't mind stopping on every
floor, especially when you have
five minutes to get to class.
10. If you are watching your
weight, avoid late night calls to
Stuffy's, Pizza Mike's, Newby s
or Chanelo's. It will definitely
begin to show after awhile.
11. Last but not least, be
patient. It's not as bad as it
seems. Truly. Good luck and

The following is the first
reprints from summer editions -
in a series of FOUNTAINHEAD
A ruling by a New York City trial judge and an enquiry by a
prospective law school student could bring considerable pressure
to bear on an already weakened system of education in America,
both at the high school and university levels-
Consider for a moment the following two instances:
Judge Irving Kirschenbaum ruled this summer in New York
that the New York City School Board must either pay for a former
student's private education or enroll him in a remedial program by
June 30. The complaint? The student claimed that he is too
i 11 iterate tocomplete a job appl icat ioru.
-A prospective law student petitioned the admissions off ice of a
North Carolina law school to reconsider her graduating average of
1968 in light of current grading standards. She was told that her
average upon graduation in 1968, around 2.75, would now be
equal to an average of 3.0, or even higher, by today's standards of
These two examples, and one dares not call them isolated,
point out two symptoms of serious illness in American education:
sodal promotion and grade inflation.
Ten years ago, one would have thought it rare indeed fa a high
school student to be unable to fill out a job application, i.e. to show
evidence of basic literacy. Yet, nationwide we see a continuous
thread of evidence that more and more of today's high school
graduates are not, in fact, armed with the basic educational skills
to enable them to cope in a modern competative society, let alone
to succeed in a university experience.
High schools across the nation are quietly pushing aside their
oonsciousness-raising kits and reaching once again for pencil and
paper; if Johnny can charm' em to death behind the counter of the
local market, it's no good if he cannot count out change fa his
Even those hallowed halls of Harvard and Yale are
reinstituting manadatay composition courses fa their entering
freshmen. The reason? The students' capabilities can no longa be
assumed to be adequate.
So, how does someone graduate from high school and not
possess the ability to fill out a job application? There is,
admittedly, noone answer. Our schools lump together students of
ail ranges of intellect, thus facing teachers to find a means of
presentation which will neither befuddle na bae their pupils.
This lumping is caused, in part, by a failure of the schools to
handle properly the needs of exceptional children (and
"exceptional as we sometime faget, means exceptionally
bright, as well as exceptionally dull, children).
Granting this and othe- alid aspects of the question, one stii
finds far too many unprepared, uneducated students being
"graduated" from today's high schools, and social promotion
loomsguilty in the background.
Today's mass market oonoept of public education needs soaal
promotion practices in ader to exist. One must succeed in this
society - "You, you're the one And failing, whether in business
a the tenth grade, just doesn' t fit in.
It is far easier fa the teacher to "pass on" a student f rom one
grade to the next than it is to confront a student, a parent, and
ultimately a system, with failure.
Students should first be children who have learned that human
beings sometimes fail, that often the reward comes in the effort
itself. So long as we place disproportionate value on the economics
of education.i.e. graduation, social promotion will be necessary fa
schools which continue to grind out candidates fa the laba force

New treatment may aid
SEATTLE (AP) - Persons with sickle cell anemia-
the blooc disease which afflicts as many as 50
million people, most of them black, and kills half
its victims before they reach age 20 - may live
longer with the help of a new machine that
treats their blood with a poisonous chemical.
Human testing will begin next year, says a
University of Washington researcher who helped
build and test one of the devices.

experimental machines, which will be allocated
toUW, Ohio State University and the University

Fourteen to 16 patients will be tested during
the next two years.
Those afflicted have red blood cells which
form a crescent or sickle shape, and lose their
ability to move through body capillaries and thus
cut off oxygen supplies.
The new machine functions like a kidney
dialysis device, which was also developed at the
University of Washington.
Patients' blood would be pumped through the
machine and dosed with the chemical sodium
cyanate before being returned to the body.

As in Sgt Pepper's, the irrespon-
sible four save the good, tuneful folk
of Pepperland from the monstrous,
music-hating Blu Meanies. Not since
the Seven Against Thebes was there
so mighty a coalition, and here,
moreover, the outcome is more
pleasant. The Pop Muses are heard
again in Pepperland, and the Blue
Meanies are sent to blazes.
Visually, every conceivable style

classic such as the Beatles'

milk the public by using film to
promote his albums, Stigwood
has released a vulgar collection
of remakes of Beatles' songs by

others. AII are atrocious.

sappily good-natured,too commer-

to move. It lacks the mixture of

and exploitation that came across in
Yellow Submarine.
Under different direction, produc-
tion, and scriptmg,Sgf. Pepper's
could have been a portrait of the
authors as not quite so young men
that might have explained where all

Stigwood's Sgt. Pepper's
'butchers and defames
Beatles' rock classic'
Robert Stigwood should be shot.
It's criminal for anyone to butcher and defame a rock classic such as
The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band like Robert Stigwood
has. In an attempt to further milk the public by using film to promote his
albums, Stigwood has released a vulgar collection of remakes of Beatles
songs by the Bee Gees, Peter Frampton, Steve Martin, and Earth, Wind
and Fire, among others. All are atrocious.
Steve Martin and Peter Frampton provide the most embarrassing
moments on the album. Frampton's lack of talent is compounded by the
fact that he got top billing in this fiasco, so naturally he sings more than
anybody el so except the Bee Gees. Frampton simply cannot sing these
songs. His � voice is incapable not only of expressing the emotional lyrics
of these songs, his voice is incapable of even hitting the right notes in the
right key. How in God's name this man can keep selling albums is beyond
Martin's long awaited movie debut as Dr. Maxwell Edison is equally
bad. His ridiculously exaggerated rendition of "Maxwell's Silver
Hammer ail the while zapping young people into a master race of evil
zombies, is too much to stomach.
After Frampton and Martin, the next worse performers are the Trash
Trio emulating the Fab Four, the Bee Gees. Their tight harmonies allow
no room for any feeling or spirit to seep through the lushly crafted songs.
George Martin, producer of both soundtrack and the Beatles albums from
which the songs came, was unable to surpass or even match his previous
arrangements, generally saddling the songs with unnecessary horns,
strings, or backing choruses. In short, dreaming up the most
inappropriate effect imaginable and then including it in the song
Frampton and the Bee Gees are the culprits behind 16 of the 28
soundtrack songs. Their faults multiply when they join forces to sing as
the title band. .
Aside from Aerosmithand Sandy Farina, every participant wastes their
talent in this venture. The arrangements are dull, the performances are
crap and the whole thing sounds as if it was pieced together as an
afterthought as if they had made a silent movie and later decided to add
the soundtrack. It is fitting that a pair of Radio Shack home built robotsare
chosen to sing several songs, apparently, the soundtrack was constructed
by robots. . ,iit

Hog Book
Hedgepeth celebrates porcine life
Staff Writer
This review of William Hedgepeth's The Hog Book appears in
two installments. Look for the conclusion in the Trends section of
The Hog Book is a book about hogs: big hogs, small hogs,
young hogs, old hogs, spotted poland china hogs, all kinds of
The hog in legend is discussed in it, so too are the hog in
history, the hog in heaven, and even the hog in heat.
Everything one oould possibly want to know about hogs is in
this book. Two hundred seventy two pages of nothing but hogs.
Who would have the daring, the gall, to not only pen an entire
voiume about hogs, but to offer it for consumption not to the
hog-raiser readers of The Razorback Hog Breeders' Gazette (one
of the nation's best pig periodicals) but to the mass reading
Only one man (obviously, since he's the only one to do so), a
man named William Hedgepeth.
But then, this is not quite as dull as The Razorback Hog
Breeders Gazette. Rahter, this is a surprisingly interesting and
entertaining book. It's filled with a hog's weight worth of wit,
humor, poetry, and illustrations. In fact, your basic
"American-Gothic" type pig farmer would probably take a dim
view of the often lighthearted treatment hogs are given by the
For instance, following a mostly straight faced recitation of the
scientific classification of the common pig which by the way is -
class: mammalia, order; artiodactyla, suborder: sui formes, family:
suidae, subfamily: suinae, genus: sus) we are given subchapters
on how to tell hogs from kangaroos, seals, bears, opossums, and
crows. (The easiest way to tell a hog from a crow: it takes much
longer to each a hog).
Nor would the dour, puntan pig-raiser think much of the Hog
Book's high-falutin" poeticizing over his precious piggies. Here's
an example of the book's porcine poetry:
We're seated in the dining room

Dye begins fifth season at ECU
Pirates open season against WCU
Sports Editor
One of the season's largest
crowds is expected for ECU'S
home opener Saturday night in
newly expanded Fioklen Sta-
dium when the Pirates square
off against Western Carolina.
And with crucial road con-
tests against Atlantic Coast
Conference foes N.C. State and
North Carolina just ahead, ECU
coach Pat Dye admits there's a
lot at stake against the danger-
ous Catamounts.
With the new stadium
expansion and the growth of our
program during the last few
years there's certainly a lot at
stake against Western Carolina,
Dye said Wednesday at his first
weekly press luncheon of the
season. "I was very, very
disappointed with the way our
season ended last year I'm
anxious to see how we come
back after last season.
"We need to win this game
because we've got an extremely
difficult road schedule this
season continued Dye,
We've worked awfully hard in
preparing for this season. Our
players have maintained an
excellent attitude and our coach-
es have done a fine job
Last season, the Catamounts
finished with an impressive
6-4-1 reoord and have one o? the
finest passing quarterbacks in
the nation, in 6-1, 204 pound
Mike Pusey.
Pusey oompleted 140 passes
for 1,939 yards and 13 touch-
downs in '77 and ranked among
the nation's leaders in passing
and total offense.
"Without question he's the
finest quarterback we've faced
since I've been in Greenville
claimed Dye. now in his fifth
season at ECU. "He's a pure
passef and an excellent all-
round athlete. He's not a
scrambler, but he can break
'acklersandget rid of the ball in
a hurry
"The key to stopping Pusey
will depend largely on our pass
rush if we let him stand back
there he'II get people open and
they'll hurt us.
The last time ECU faced
Western Carolina, the Pirates
were forced to come from
behind in the second half to
capture a hard earned 24-17
victory The series is now tied at
13 games apiece with the last

Saturday night. Defensively,
D.T. Joyner and Vance Tingler

see plenty of action at tackle.
"D.T. has been the highlight
of fall practice noted Dye.
"He's been a real pleasant
surprise since we figured he was
going to wrestle this year and
come back and play football next
Dye also mentioned fresh-
man John Hallow would see

starter Oliver Felton while soph-
omore Jeffrey Warren would be
the primary substitute at line-
James Freer will be the
�number one backup at corner-

Dye also said Steve Greer
has clearly established himself
as the backup quarterback be-

Durham native would see action
against Western Carolina.
Steve has gained a lot more
confidence in himself and the
entire coahoing staff has been
pleased with his progress
praised Dye. "He will play in
several series in the first half
and a few more in the second
half. I want to let him know we
have confidence in his ability to

Our old friend Chip?
When the Pnate sports fans pick up the Raleigh News and
Observer this fall to read about ECU football, you may or may not
recognize the name Chip Alexander underneath the headlines.
Yes. it's the same Chip Alexander who covered Pirate
basketball last season. Alexander quickly became a rekn.
figure around the ECU athletic department after a two-part series
about head basketball coach Larry Gillman.
Alexander followed those stories with mroe interesting poop on
Gillman including the reports concerning his employment �
the Chicago Bullsand most recently the NCAA investigation of the
Pirate basketball program.
So apparently. Alexander did such an excellent job with ECU
basketball. Sports Editor Joe Tiede decided he would obviousK
the best man for Pirate footbaii.
But before anyone starts complaining or muttering obscenities
about this particular sportswnter, let's take a closer look at his
Chip was born and raised in'the heart of Wolf pack Country,
Raleigh. N.C. He attended Needham Broughton High School
where he played football and yes, you guessed it. graduated from
North Carolina State University.
He is. and will always be. an ardent supporter of N.C. State
athletics, which isn't very encouraging since the Pirates have
beaten N C State on the football field fa the last two years
But Chip's not one to hold a grudge. Even if ECU dumps the
Pack again this season, he oontends it will have no affect
whatsoever on his sportswriting. But, if N.C. State beats the
Prates. Alexander will certainly be satisfied his alma mater is the
better team no matter how many games ECU wins or loses this
Oddly enough Chip never took a single journaHsm class or
wrote for the Technician while at N.C. State, but two weeks after
graduation h� started writing sports for the Wilm-ngton
Star-News He spent two years in Wilmington before returning to
Raleigh ana did an little stringing for the News and Observer
before beginning full time work last fall when he oovered Duke
Around Atlantic Coast Conference sportswriters. Chip is
known as "The Slammer An emotiona writer, he sometimes
slams his fist down on the press table a'ter a poor call by an
official. Press row in Raleigh's Reynolds Coliseum has numerous
dents m it, and Chip will undoubtedly put a few more in the new
Fioklen Stadiun pressbox before the end of the season.
But Chip is a professional. He has extraordinary insight into
sports and is certainly one of the more colorful writers on the News
and Observer sports staff. He, along with the N & O's A.J. Carr,
are probably two of the best "feature" writers in the state.
Chip snot hard to recognize. He's 28 years old, stands 6-3, and
weighs 185 pounds. An immaculate dresser he looks more like a
quarterback than a sports writer.
So if you're standing around the ECU dressing room after a
game or see him wandering around in downtown Greenville on a
Saturday night, stop and offer him some advice or maybe even a
little praise.
He could use a little of both.

Waters, now beginning his
10th season at Western Caro-
lina, produced one of themost
exciting offensive teams m the
oountry last year. With quarter-
back Mike Pusey (pronounced
Pew-see) at the controls, the
Catamounts finished 11th in the
nation in passing offense with
just over 220 yards a game.
Cat back Wayne Tolleson led
the nation in receiving with 73
passes for 1101 yards and 13
touchdowns, while halfback
Darreli Lipford rushed for 1364
yards, scored 16 touchdowns
and finished second in the
nation in total points scored.
Although Western Carolina
started slowly losing its first
three games, the Cats late
season surge produced five
straight victories including a
44-14 victory over Appalachian

Waters. "But the game still

their 5-9, 207-pound fullback in
last year's first game against
N.C. State and are hoping to see
Sutton and his teammates get
off to anothe fast start this fail.
The Pirates kickoff the 1978
season at home Sept. 2 against
Western Carolina in newly-
expanded Ficklen Stadium.
Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
Sutton raced for 127 yards,
the most by a Pirate all last fail,
when he assumed the starter's
role against the Woifpack as a
late replacement for the injured
Vinos Koianko.

ooncentrate in front of 50,000
people long enough to do my
job Sutton sayd. "I was a bit
nervous, too, but once the
hitting started I just seemed to
forget about the crowd.
It took just that one game to
establish Sutton as the starting
fullback for the rest of the year.

ndary awaits
Sports Editor
ECU head coach Pat Dye and member of the Pirate defensive
secondary have reached a mutual agreement on at least one thing
before Saturday's season opener against Western Carolina.
That Catamount quarterback Mike Pusey is the finest passing
i quarterback the Pirates have ever faced.
"He's even a better passer than pat Sullivan, I think said
Dye, now in his fifth season at ECU. Sullivan, was the 1971
Heisman Trophy winner when Dye served as an assistant at
Last year, Pusey made shambles of opponents secondaries
completing 140 passes for 1939 yards and 13 touchdowns which
ranked 10th in the nation. He also finished 8th in the nation in total
offense with 1,985 yards.
" He's a very intelligent quarterback said cornerback Charlie
Carter, who intercepted two passes last season. "He checks off
very quickly and reads offenses real well. The game will certainly
be a test for our secondary, but we're much more experienced
than we were last season, We'll probably use a lot of zone
coverage against them, but we'll also mix it up with some
Wayne Tolleson, the nation'stop pass receiver last season with
73 catches for 1101 yards and seven touchdowns, was Pusey's
favorite target. Tolleson, the Athlete of the Year In the Southern
Conferenoe, has graduated but the Catamounts still have a host of
talented receivers, according to Carter.
"Their receivers are not big, but they're extremely quick
and they' vegot good speed admitted Carter. "If we can pick off
a couple of Pusey's passes early, maybe we can discourage him
from throwing as much as he normally would
This season, Pusey wilt throw to his Catback Gerald Harp a
diminutive 5-7,151 pound speedster who caught 23 passes fa 287
yards and two touchdowns last year. Split end Fred Meadows, a
W0, 150 pound senior will be Pussy's other top receiver
Meadows caught seven passes for i09yards in '77.
"Gerald Harp is an except ionai athlete said ECU secondary
coach Bobby Wallace. "Harp's the guy they expect to replace
Tdlenson and he's capable of coming up with the big catch whan
they need it. Fred Meadows is an experienced receiver who has
excellent hands.
"All their receivers are small, but there fast and quick and
they can all go up in a crowd to catch the ball
Pusey isoartainly not the first exceptional passing quarterback
the Pirate secondary has seen. Last year N.C. State's Johnny
Evans, Duke's Mike Dunn and William and Mary's Tom Rozarrtz
all had little trouble finding their receivers.
But ECU'sother cornerback Willie Hoiley, along with the rest
of the secondaries, feels a year's experience has improved
everyone's confidence.
"We ware all young and inexperienoed last year admitted
Hoiley a junior from Edenton, N.C "We i�

The hog in legend is discussed in it, so too are the hog in
history, the hog in heaven, and even the hog in heat.
Everything one oould possibly want to know about hogs is in
this book. Two hundred seventy two pages of nothing but hogs.
Who would have the daring, the gall, to not only pen an entire
volume about hogs, but to offer it for consumption not to the
hog-raiser readers of The Razorback Hog Breeders' Gazette (one
of the nation's best pig periodicals) but to the mass reading
Only one man (obviously, since he's the only one to do so), a
man named William Hedgepeth.
But then, this is not quite as dull as The Razorback Hog

entertaining book. It's filled with a hog's weight worth of wit,
humor, poetry, and illustrations. In fact, your basic

ECU intramural office announces new trainers

East Carolina's Intramural
department � offer the finest
intramural trainers and sports
mediane program in the state
this year and three qualified
sports medicine trainers have
been added to the intramural
staff to take charge of the
Dr. Wayne Edwards, ECU'S
Director of Intramurals has
announced the addition of Gra-
duate Assistants Nancy Hutch-
es. Ann Baker and Charles,
Fisher to serve as intramural
trainers for the coming year.
During the past three seasons,
the intramural program has had
only one trainer.
"We will offer three basic
programs of training and first-
aid to the student said
Edwards. "The first will consist
of precautionary taping, the
second will involve immediate
first-aid at the sight of the injury
and the third program will offer
limited followup rehabilitation
under the direction and advise
of the Infirmary staff
Edwards added that the
Trainer's Room, which is loca-
ted in the basement will be open
from 2:30 to 3.30 each afternoon
to provide taping of injuries for
ECU students participating in
intramurals, as well as to offer
assistance to students needing
followup care from injuries.
Such followup care will include
the application of heat and ice,
exercise, whirlpools and the
application of hydrocullulators.
One of the three trainers will
be at the intramural fields at all
times in the event an injury
occurs during a contest. The
trainer will be able to offer
first-aid if needed and will have
the authority to refer the patient
to the infirmary or hospital if
theinjury proves to be serious.
One of the three trainers on
duty will be at all intramural
activities which involve bodily
contact explained Edwards.
"In addition, our qualified
sports medicine persons will
work with all the dub sports
All three trainers are trained
in sports medicine and first-aid
skills. Each will be teaching a
class on first-aid as part of their
Graduate program.
Hut chins has already earned
her National Trainer's certifica-
tion as an Athletic Trainer and
Baker has taken her test for
national certification is waiting
for the official word on her
approval. Fisher will take his
certification exam next month.
Hutchins graduated from
Southwest Texas State College
and worked on all men's and
women's sports at the school,
including football and track.
Baker is a native of State
College, Pennsylvania and a
graduate of Penn State Univer-
sity. Fisher attended Indiana
University, where he earned his
B.S. in Health and Physical
Education and travelled with the
Hoosier football squad as a team
"With the expansion of our
program to three trainers, we
continue to grow in this pro-
gram said Edwards. "We
added two trainers because our
program has expanded so rapid-
ly that one certified trainer was
insufficient to provide quality
"We are the only school in
North Carolina and only one of
very few in the oountry that
offer on-the-field care for intra-
murals added Edwards. "We
have been allowed to do much
more this years than in past
years thanks to the help and
support we've been receiving
from the infirmary staff
The taping, first-aid and
training program will begin on
Tuesday, September 5. During
later parts of the year when
intramural activities are held
indoors, Dr. Edwards said he
hopea the training room hours
would be expanded.
"The thing that is most
important added Fisher, "Is
that the students know we are
here and that the service is
available to them.
The ECU Sports Information
Department will conduct a clinic
on Sat Sept. 2 about sports
information principles and tech-
niques. The session will be free
for interested high school and
junior high school coaches and
their student aides who will be
working with the media.
The four-hour program be-
gins at 9 a.m. Later in the
afterrnoon a tour of the new
ultr-modern East Carolina foot-
ball press box is scheduled.
Those attending the dinic
are invited to remain for the
Pirate's home opener at 7 p.m.
against Western Carolina Univ-
ersity as guests of the sports
information office. There will be
no charge for these tickets, but
advance notioe will be required
for football tickets.
"This is part of our exten-
sion effort to assist the commun-
ity and the state said Pirate
sports information diredor Walt
Atkins who will be presenting
the dinic, "We will be concern-
ing ourselves with covering
football, football statistical work
understanding the media and
how best to meet their needs, as
well as prindples fa dealing
with the media on a day-to-day
Atkins will also be oonduct-
