SGA elections 'went smoothly
Staff Reporter
Even with light voter turn out and the
dosing of one pott, thto year'a SGA tan
elections "went smoothly" as stated by
Elections Committee Chairperson and
SGA Vice President, David Cartwright.
According to the SGA Constitution,
the closing of a poll must be decided by
the legislature but because this was the
election to form the legislature, the
summer legislature, the Executive
Branch of SGA, acted on the situation.
According to Cartwright, the poll at
the Allied Health building was cancelled
because of a shortage of poll tenders.
Cartwright said a member of the
Elections Committee, Jaret Dunn,
contacted the PRC Club President, Di
Wortby to have the club man the polls, as
they had don the job so successfully last
Wortby assured Dunn that the club
could handle the polls.
Cartwright said Monday afternoon he
received word that 501? man hours
remained to be filled at the polls.
With the help of members of the PRC
Club and WRC enough people were
found to cover all but the Allied Health
precinct with approximately three other
precincts opening one hour late.
Cartwright regretted this action but
said nothing else could be done
Cartwright said he was pleased with
the way the elections went "especially
since no one on the Elections Committee
had ever worKed on an election before
Elections Committee members served
as ballot counters.
Members are: Chairperon (SGA V.P.)

Jackson; Janet Dunn; (SGA Treasurer) -
Zack Smith; Jeff Fleming and Linda
Dean Alexander and Dr. Tucker,
Administrative Advisors to the SGA put
in appearances showing their concern
and interest.
i bauewe the counting of ballots went
smoother and taster this year than �n
years past said Dean Alexander.
He also sent "congratulations to the
winners and my sympathies to the
Cartwright notified candidates who
were not present of the results by phone
following the final tally.
According to Cartwright, the returns
are not official until they have been
checked once more, which is scheduled
for Wednesday.
Carwright stated that there were
virtually "no problems" except that the
elections committee regrets the unfor-
tunate situation as a result of the
revocation of the reduced advertising
"I hope this didn't hurt any of the
candidates chances of being elected
said Vice Chairperson Lynn Bell.
Some of the candidates present had
these election comments and reactions:

A continuing debate on
the proposed campus radio
station WECU-FM and a
list of appropriations pre-
sented by Robert Swaim on
behalf of FOUNTAIN-
HEAD highlighted yester-
day's Media Board meet-
The meeting began with
discussion over the present
status of the proposed FM
conversion of the campus
radio station WECU.
The board discussed
Chancellor Brewer's hiring
of an independent engineer
to do a study on the
proposed application to the
FCC to convert WECU to
Dean Alexander com-
mented that Dr. Brewer
wanted to examine the
situation as it pertained to
the license, since the li-
cense application has been
signed by Dr. Jenkins,
Brewer's predecessor.
Dr. Brewer hired Law-
rence Behr, a Greenville
engineer to double-check
the application.
According to Tommy
Joe Payne, Media Board
chairperson, Brewer had
some doubts about the
radio station, and he hired
an engineer to find out
what responsibilities the
university had to assume if
broadcast activity began.
Behr found several mis-
takes in the application. On
a topographic map, sent to
the FCC in Washington,
the location fo the studio
and transmitter is approx-
imately 1.8 milea off of its
actual location in Pitt
According to Payne, the
mistakes will be corrected
by Mr.Edward Perry, who
is employed by FM Edu-
cational associates, the firm
which Is handling the li-
cense application.
According to Payne,
Perry said that mistakes on
license application are not
uncommon, and said they
are easily corrected.
He also said the original
mistakes would not jeo-
pardize the application at
Dean Alexander said
there were still many que-
stions to be answered. He
said the radio station would
belong to the university,
and approval would have to
be sought on several mat-
Alexander said that
modifications to existing
buildings would have to be
approved. He said the
present site in Joyner li-
brary is to be used for the
studio, building modifica-
tions need to be approved.
He also said the pro-
posed antenna, slanted to
be construction on the roof
of Tyler Dorm, had not yet
been approved.
Alexander commented
further about proposals
which had not yet been
approved, saying that the
possible electric bill would
be high, and that, no one
had figured out where the
money would come from to
pay for it.
Alexander stressed the
need for a full-time pro-
fessional general manager
for the radio station.
He said a manager
would provide "continuity"
from year to year.
He said further that a
college radio station in
Pennsylvania had lost its
FCC license because of lack
of management, and he
thought a professional sta-
tion manager would pre-
vent that situation from
happening here.
Chairman Payne then
said the the general station
manager had nothing to do
with the license revocation
in the Pennsylvania case.
Alexander said that a
professional was needed
not only to provide guid-
ance for the station, but
also to provide an effective
liason between the media
board and WECU.
Dr. Tucker then stres-
sed the point that if Penn-
sylvania had taken reme-
dial action, the FCC license
would not have been re-
voked. Payne, quoted
Chancellor Brewer saying
that a general manager for
the station was not needed
as long as the station had a
low power rating, and did
not carry out of Pitt County.
Dean Alexander said
that Chancellor Brewer
does not want to run the
station � that the chan-
cellor's main concern is
with excellence.
In the closing remarks
on the WECU debate, the
statement was made that
the FM conversion was still
a "long way off

Promising SGA
The Student Government Association
(SGA) legislature for 1978-79 has now been
elected. The only step remaining before they
may hold business is a perfunctory swearing in
ceremony. This year's legislature is made
primarily of fresh blood. Few legislators have
returned from last year but those who did
belong to both factions which have split the
SGA for the past three years. The time has
come to set aside the differences of the past
and to work as one body for the welfare of all
Every organization needs a steady influx of
fresh opinions and ideas and the predominant-
ly rookie makeup of the legislature should
serve to rejuvenate the SGA. Undoubtedly
some of these new members will drop out;
others, people will wish they would drop out.
We are confident however that the majority
will be intelligent, objective legislators who
will devote their efforts to the present and not
dredge up dead issues from the past and waste
the legislature's valuabe time.
The next few weeks are crucial in
determining the success or failure of this
year's legislature for the next few weeks will
be devoted to deciding which organizations
should be funded and how much money they
should get. The bulk of the budget will go to
such traditionally large recipients as the
Transit System, the Marching Pirates, the
Visual Arts Forum, student loans, and the
legal service.
Generally, these budgets are voted on early
in the year and organizations who submit their
budgets or appropriation requests later will not
have as good a chance of getting everything
they wanted. Since each bill is sent through the
appropriations process in the order it is
received the earlier bills have an inordinate
advantage over bills which are important but
which came in after most of the money had
been given out.
One way to eliminate this unfairness would
be to establish a deadline for new budget bills
and then see how much money is needed and
how much is at hand to fulfill those needs. This
way each bill would have a more or less equal
chance of getting its fair share of the total SGA
budget and not just the fat of early fall or the
crumbs of winter.
The future looks promising for this year's
SGA. We look forward to a cordial relationship
with the legislature and hope they meet the
challenge before them in the wise expenditure
of approximately $150,000 in student fees.
Calder warns of carnival hucksters
Dorm life: 24 hour
The following column is
reprinted from
20, 1977 issue.
Last week during the
cold weather, someone who
lives in Jarvis told me that
the dorms were on a strict
energy rationing program:
one aay there was hot water
and no heat, and the next
day the Neat was on but the
showers were arctic. I was
sympathetic. I remember
dozens of nights in Jones
when I was jerked awake as
the heat came on at 4 a.m
so loud you'd swear some-
one downstairs was beating
on the pipes with a ball-pen
hammer. I remember the
energy shortage last year,
too: Virginia Power and
Light sent memos around to
every room saying that one
of their generators was
down and if students did
not voluntarily conserve
power, they would have to
shut down the whole
University. Minutes after
the memo was distributed,
everyone on my hall
plugged in hotplates,
guitars, irons, 'electric
pencil sharpeners, TVs,
radios, razors, and hot-
combs. Every light in my
room was on; the stereo
was going full blast; and
my roommate was in the
hall yelling, "Waste power!
Let's go home "
Anytime I think of the
dorms now, I thank God I'm
out. I spent my required
two years there, and I
enjoyed a lot of it, but now
you couldn't get me back in
with a shotgun. Ask
anybody�even the people
who live there-dorm life is
24-hour insanity.
The dormsrwhere you
can stand in the hall and
drink beer from a glass with
no hassle, but if it's in a
can, the hall advisor will
confiscate it. Where your
next-door-neighbor plays
his stereo at volume 9 but
you're not allowed to play
your acoustic guitar. Where
they fine you $5 for taking
the screen off your window.
Where it's legal to have
women guests at 1259 but
one minute later they can
be arrested for trespassing.
The dormswhere I ate
out every night because I
couldn't cope with cooking
on my tiny hotplate, which
kept short-circuiting any-
way. Where I learned in
the shower to duck when-
ever someone flushed the
toilet. Where I discovered
the true value of sleep.
Two years in a row I was
the only person on our hall
who got along with his
roommate. That meant
everyone else, who hated
their roommates, hung out
in our room. Lots of times I
locked the door and
pretended to be outlack of
solitude is definitely a
problem when you live in
the party room.
I never got anything
done in the dorms.The pace
was just too hard to live
with. Everything was so
laid-back, and at the same
time, so frantic, that it was
a real problem deciding
what to do when you
weren't in class. (Usually
your hall mates decided for
you.) And if you ever
settled down to an evening
of serious study, someone
was sure to start a panty
You could always find a
party in the dorms. I
remember standing in the
shower on my first morning
at ECU, talking with the
guy beside me about the
semi-annual perpetual
hangover of registration
week. We were both
impressed with the quan-
tity of partying the average
dorm student could tol-
erate, but I told him I was
sure things would be much
quieter during exam week.
"Hell he said, "these
people don't stop for
nothing. You wait and
He was right. No one in
the dorms is immune to
party fever, and exam week
just provided more free
time for getting wrecked.
The hyper people O.D.ed
on No-Ooze, crammed dur-
ing the day and partied all
night. The laid-back people
set up lawn chairs in the
shower, sat there and drank
beer under the cool water
all afternoon, and later
slept or crashed through
their exams. So many
people on our hall dropped
out after exams that LeRoy,
our janitor, commented,
"Livin' in these dorms will
drive you crazy. I know I
couldn't stand it
The dorms: where there
is always something to tear
up if you get bored. In
Aycock they put M-80's in
the commodes and literally
demolished the bathroom
fixtures. In Jones they
leaned 30-gallon garbage
cans full of water against a
door and waited for the
occupant to come out.
Every night there were
shaving cream fights and
trash can burnings. People
threw furniture out the
windows, kicked holes In
glass panels. One night I
watched a guy take an axe
to his chair-he smashed it
to kindling, too, without
batting an eye. My room-
mate that year was a
pyromaniac: he lit long
trails of lighter fluid in the
halls and burned announce
ments off the bulletin
board. Then he learned to
blow 12-foot fireballs from
his mouth and every night
during Homecoming week
he walked around College
Hill "treating" the dorms
to a fireshow.
This is the season for
county fairs all over the
state of North Carolina.
They bring with them the
gyp-artistthe carnival
His game may change
slightly from year to year,
or take on new trimmings,
. but its basic purpose
remains the same-to make
as much money as possible
in the short time available.
With such innocent
titles as football, cat-throw,
milk-bottle-throws, and
dish games, mouthed by a
fast-talking huckster capi-
talizing on the strong
appeal of something for
nothing, there is little
difficulty in finding enough
Some of the games are
simple and produce income
at a slow but steady rate.
The old milk-bottle-throw
game is such a game. The
object of the game is to
knock a pyramid of bottles
off the stand with two balls.
The bottles are weighted-
we'll say one, two and six
To produce a winner all
the operator has to do is
place the light bottles on
the bottom and the heavy
ones on top. After a little
encouragement wih lesser
prizes�and perhaps addi-
tional attraction of a side
bet� the fleecing begins.
The heavy bottles are
now placed on the bottom
and the light bottles end up
on top of the pyramid.
More complicated games
?re the big money-makers;
ones involving rolling a
number of small balls or
marbles on the board with
numbered holes. A chart
displays all the possible
totals, giving each total a
specific point value, usually
from zero to eight.
For SI, the victim is
given three rolls to make 10
points and win a prize. His
first three rolls add up to
21. Upon checking the
chart, he sees that his point
value is four.
He rolls again and
comes up with a 19, which
draws the point value of
two. Now he is informed
that he has hit the "jack-
pot and if he is willing to
put up $2.50 and roil again
for 10 points, he has a
chance to win not only the
prize, but $26 to-boot.
Now, untie the rules of
the "new game the
victim "cannot lose" un-
less he quits, but now each
roll will cost him an addi-
tional $2.50. Every time he
rolls the "jack-pot" num-
ber, it will cost him double
for the next roll- and the
"jack-pot" also doubles.
The victim's first roll in
the new game produces a
point value for which the
house pays double what the
victim Daid for the roll. On
his next roll, the player
draws 19; the "jack-pot"
jumps to $50 and the cost
per roll doubles. Another
roll turns up a "bonus
number' for which the
house adds $25 to the
The process continues
until the "jack-pot" stands
at $250 and each roil is
costing the victim $10.
With the stakes high, quick
retrieving of the balls,
rapid "and inaccurate"
adding, and an abundance
of distracting chatter by the
operator, the accumulation
of points becomes more and
more difficult.
Before long the victim is
forced to quit, but not until
he has exhausted all his
funds and probably a sub-
stantial amount borrowed
from his buddies.
Go to the County Fair,
enjoy the rides, stay away
from the games.

A year ago, three mari-

The Ecu School of Ed-

ugh I have changed my whole concept and really no
onger believe in any way. shape or form that there is a
pnotic trance, by the time I had graduated from high
school practically all my teachers had been volunteers on
stage and that's pretty unusual for a kid of 15, 16 years old
to have them volunteer as subjects.
Then I found out much later that teachers that I'd had
grade school and junior high had sent letters to the high
school faculty that my abilities were to be encouraged and
cultivated So I never knew that; they had kept that from
FOUNTAINHEAD: How did your parents; immediate
family react to all of this7

with a man named Thurston who was a great stage
musician and a much better magician than Houdini ever

was even though Houdini really wasn't known as a
magician in his life. My father was very encouraging. My
mother was quite frightened. My father's side of the family
was very encouraging and I had an aunt whom I did a show
for every Friday night for about four years
FOUNTAINHEAD: In what capacity were you
performing during this period?
Kreskin: "I was performing then as a magician and
then when I was in my teens I was performing as a magician
and a hypnotist and I was really interested in various forms
of extra-sensory perception. You see, the thing is, I had no
standard from which to work.
"When I was in the fourth grade, the adult department
of my library, in Caldwell, which I lived across the street
from, gave me special permission to use the library. So by
the time I was in the eighth grade I had read every book in
the psychology and sociology departments of the library.
They had extraordinarily good departments in these fields.
The librarians would buy books basically because they felt
they would be good for me and they would put them in their
respective sections
FOUNTAINHEAD: In the course of your reading did
you ever concentrate on any particular group of people?
Kreskin: I was very interested in the lives of famous
people from every walk o life: Einstein, Edison, show
people. I wanted to know what made them function so
extraordinarily in their specialization as well as what made
them communicate so well with others. I was interested in
theevangelists; I was interested in people like Arthur
"I was very much interested in him because he, in my
childhood, was constantly being made the subject of cover
stories in national publications. You have to realize that
while Jacqueline Kennedy was for years on the cover of
most magazines, Arthur Godfrey was on the cover of more
magazines, as Edward R. M urrow the newspaper columnist
said, than any other person in the forties and fifties and I
wanted to know how he had this ability to communicate so
well. Now psychologists wrote about him in many
publications in the early fifties and said that Arthur Godfrey
was a hypnotist but never knew it
FOUNTAINHEAD: So when we say that a performer
has "charisma" or "presence we might also include a
clause about some form of hypnotic phenomenon?
Kreskin: "That's right. But not hypnosis. The
phenomenon that we describe as hypnosis really isn't
related to any form of trance or trance-like state. It's an
ability to tap or create deep feeling from a suggestion. The
most effective form of It really defies description. It is the
kind of ability that has no real technique. It seems to come
from the person. Today we call it charisma. In the thirties
my father told me that certain people, people in show
business, had an "it" quality. It has been called many
things. In the fifties it was called a chemistry. No one really
knows what it is.
"Unfortunately, it is almost like humor. As Steve Allen
said, when you try to write about humor and analyze it, it is
no longer funny Some people try the same lines and just
don't get the same response. But because I had no
restriction and no formula and no structure, I found my own
way. I didn't know how to do what I did because I never saw
anybody do what I did. I was very lucky because I had
nothing to imitate but fiction and fantasy
FOUNTAINHEAD: Were you ever looked upon as
"different" or get more than your share of ribbing as a

got them to do it, would play games with me that dealt with
this and in some of the games where we used to play there
would always be an interlude where I was performing and
imagining that I was performing before a very large
audience. I was always doing thought reading experiments.
When I was seven years old I mastered a very interesting
experiment which a friend of mine, one Walter B. Gibson
who knew Houdini intimately and Thurston and Blackstone,
said that it was a test that had been tried some years ago.
"I would take ten cards and I would lay them face down
on a table. I would have relatives come and stand on my
right and just think of any card and all I would do was move

seconds my hand would start to dip over the card that they
were thinking of. I was doing this when I was seven years
FOUNTAINHEAD: Can you remember your first
experience with this type of phenomenon7
Kreskin: "Yes. I believe I was about eight years old.
The first time it happened that I didn't think it was a game,
that I was sure it was pure thought transference. I
remember that I was at a party with a group of my friends
and I said 'think of a movie you saw in the past year' and a
really uncanny thing happened. I called out each of the
movies that each of them was thinking of. But I wasn't
surprised. And, I don't know, after awhile they got used to
the fact that I could do this. M y immediate family was quite
"Still, they didn't treat me as strange and consequently
it did not put me in an uncomfortable light. When I went to
Bethlehem, my first shows were in my aunt's home in
Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, my aunt would invite some forty
or fifty people over and they would sit there and see me do a
two hour program. By the time I was twelve I was
performing before audiences as large as 300 people'

you haven't been performing in one capacity or another?

FOUNTAINHEAD: Have you learned anything from
your experiences as a mentalist that might benefit others?
Kreskin: "I'll tell you something, which I think people
should remember no matter what kind of work they are
going into. I want to make this point especially for people
who are going into communications. Something has come
out of all of this. I have never said this before in my life. I
am not a nightclub performer; I am not a university
performer; I am not a stage performer; I am not a televiston
performer and I have to say. and I don't mean this
egotistically. I have learned to apply my art to any audience
conceivable. Whether it be an audience of the president and
his family, an audience of the queen of England. 8000
people in North Dakota, or the private party of Jonathan
Winters or Jill St. John. I know of no audience that this
doesn't work with and it no longer worries me
FOUNTAINHEAD And you feel that all these qualities
are inherent in other people but they lack the knowledge
necessary to tap them7
Kreskin: "Yes. but I can't train people to become a
mentalist. I can train people to tap their inner minds. I
believe that the only way one can ever fully live up to his
potential is to have a mistress in his life and I don't mean
that the way it sounds. What I mean is that one must devote

Tar River Poetry an 'impeccable journal of poems'
Assistant Trends Editor
Dr Peter Makuck has edited an impeccable journal of
poetry. Both in its literary quality and its handsome format
Tar River Poetry stands on a par with most small magazines
of poetry in the country.
Poems by William Stafford, Lyn Lifshin, LukeWhisnant
and Susan Fromberg Schaeffer highlight this Falls issue of
Tar River Poetry (formerly Tar River Poets).
This semester's edition features poetry by such
nationally prominent poets as Stafford and Schaeffer along
with excellent work by Greenville and East Carolina poets,
Luke Whisnant, Gerda Nischan and Brenda Little among
Stafford's poems begin this season's selection. His
"Flaubert at Croisset" delves with marvelous insight into
the way the French master must have felt while living in his
provincial Croisset and writing his masterpiece.
The wind would veer, and over the sound
I would hear their talk; so many slant
remarks, the slur. Sometimes I died,
being one of them-sometimes it was all
I could bear They would fight over women; they
stumbled when they thought; they cheered diches.

a treasure-the residue of stupid encounters
all over town, and wrote them like
a cage around a pair of hopeful

because one believed patterns alone

it is soI'm Charles Bovary
and happily married and the other also
myself-craving everything good,
sense-drugged, lost, impatient. Often
often, listing to them I died:
I died for every word.
In his "With Thanks for the Gift of a Jar of Patchouli"
Stafford communicates the memories and sensations
awakened in him by the scent of patchouli. "Never" and
Forever are concepts in love that are as ephemeral as the
scent of patchouli given off by the jar that his lady has
accidently left at his house.
Stafford deals with the passage of time and generations
in his "Crossing the Campus with a New Generation This
sensitive poem begins, "Practising how to lose and
continues on to examine the inevitable sense of having to
"leave home" continually throughout life.
Brenda Little, a senior in the writing program at East
Carolina, has three poems in Tar River Poetry. Her "Pt. of
View" examines the situation of a girl who has an unwanted

Mrs. Little is a poet with a remarkable eye for
significant detail, as becomes obvious in her "Distant
Thunder" which is a poem after the famous painting by
Andrew Wyeth of a woman lying in a Maine field looking up
at her farmhouse in the distance.
In her "At the Public Burying Grounds in Tarboro"
Mrs. Little deals with the sad inevitability of death and
relates these old graves to the new ones that will be dug for
herself and her husband.
LukeWhisnant is a senior in the writing program at East
Carolina and is currently editor of the The Rebel, East
Carolina's literary-arts magazine. He is also a young man
who writes poetry with surprising grace and facility. His
poems elucidate the paradoxical beauty pathos of life.
Whisnant writes a lyrical poem of love in his "Sails
using a sail-boat and its journey as a metaphor for a love
relationship. In "The Moment" the speaker catches a fish
and weighs "the moment which hooked us examining the
paradox between man's dominion of the animals and the
innate cruelty of killing. Somehow, one feels that deep in
the poem there is a statement about human relationships as
Whisnant's "Snowblind" is one of the finest, most
well-executed poems in the book, a startingly bright vision
of the depth of the soul.

What did happend was
that a transvestite had
hijacked the detective's car
and was gunned down by
the mobsters instead of
Clouseau. The inspector
has a hard time explaining
this to police and the

they apprehend him and try
to oommit him also.
While running away
from the authorities,
Clouseau avoids their cap-
ture by hiding in Dreyfuss'
room, the former inspector

him, however, it is by

Clouseau waved at him and
smiles; Drey - promptly
rolles his eyes and faints.
PETER SELLERS IS,Clouseau again in "The Revenge of

As in the other films in
the series, Sellers' Clouseau

ed via pratfalls, gangsters
flying through windows and
walls, or Cato being yanked
off his feet and sent sprawl-
ing into a river.
While there is nothing
wrong with this, Sellers
seems to have to rely on
this to make this film work
and that shouldn't be.
What does alleviate it,
however, is his irreparable
fumbling of worlds. "I'm

of a boy who has never been further
north in his life than north Georgia.
The lenses which cover his eyes
are the only green things for miles.
Sun flares off the glaze of the trail
so bright it could blaze down the i. ees
on nothing but naked light.
The boy who has never seen snow
and has never imagined the sun
blasting off the mirror-like ground
a hundred times brighter than summer
lifts off his glasses to see
the side of a mountain afire
and the trees in the sun doing nothing
but shining and slowly refreeling:
branches have coated themselves
with perfect shells of ice
which rattle and chime in the wind
until the whole mountain is singing
Slitting his eyes to cut down
the acres of snow-brightened light,
wind freezing tears to his cheeks,
he knows that the risk is no greater
than the need to keep looking into
the utter aloneness of ice.
The Eskimo tell of a man
seeking power and spirits for days
on the tundra, snowblind and mad
when they found him.
His vision returned one night
in the artic dark of an igloo.
Only that man could know
how far north in your life you can go
until eyes begin to burn out
from looking too long at nothing;
why a boy has sat down among shells
of ice at the edge of a cliff
he has thrown the green glasses over.
Gerda Nischan's poetry makes two admirable appear-
ances in Tar River Poetry. "Then" is a poem about two
young women who are friends and the turn their
relationship takes. "Your House" speaks of a house that is
haunted with the ghosts of bitterness, hate and divorce.
Susan Fromberg Schaeffer has published four volumes
of poetry. Her Granite Lady was nominated for a National
Book Award and her first novel, Falling was one of Time
magazine's Ten Best Novels of the Year.
Her poetry is sensitive and intelligent, in the school of
Plath, Sexton, and Adrienne Rich. She has five poems in

He is an extremely

some of his most cerebral
moments are encoded in

of sexuality. There are male

But there is much more to
Farmer than sex. Of course
he is a nasty old man, but
what seperates him from
other nasty old men is that
he is a multi-leveled writer,
the fun kid, whose stories
one can peel like an onion
to reveal deeper meanings.
� n his mainstream novel
Free and The Night he
demonstrated his belief
that sex and religion are
two sides of the same coin.
This theme, in various
permutations, has surfaced
again and again in his
Farmer's accounts of

between godhood (super-
heroes and superheroines
are always well-endowed
and anxious to prove it). A
typical Farmer hero could
be envisioned as a sex-
crazed Batman with a halo.

pointed out in his study of

are more often blown by
their own men that laid.

that even of the size,

which began during these

"Modern education has
tended toward specializat-

graduates with a rather
narrow vision of the

"An interdisciplinary
program such as this will
involve the student in a

entative of this, and part-
icularly interesting because
on this same unconscious
plane, the desire for
sexualreligious fulfillment
becomes the desire for
conquest of the same.
The hero is a detective
named Harold Childe (Yep.
Lord Byron). He looks like
Byron, and even walks with
a limp. He is drawn, while
investigating a murder,
into a cult of extraterres-
trials with superior powers.
These powers enable
them to adopt human form
and behave like sexual
perverts with some pretty
bizarre twists. (Again: Far-
mer is one of the few
writers who can get away
with such a stupid plot.)
Childe discovers the
nature of these beings, and
loathesthem, tries to whip
them at their own game. In
the Farmerian context, this
is rather like a man becom-
ing a priest in order to
defeat his god.
There is an interplay of
sex and religion here, in
that the creatues are dec-
isively attracted to Childe's
Byronic looks, and their
vast superiority over, and
influence in the life of the
unfortunate detective. He
fears them, but pursues
them, not to understand
but to destroy.
The god(s) also take on
the form of the enemy in
the Riverworld novels: Bur-
ton and his shipmates have
no love for the ethicals
and seek them out. But, in
keeping with the major
body of Farmer's work,
they seek to understand
rather than defeat, though
they are somewhat biased
from the beginning.
At his best, Philip Jose'
Farmer is a barroom brawl
of a writer, capable of
smashing the reader over
the head with a beer-bottle
many times in the course of
a novel. He doesn't take
himself too seriously, which
is important in contempor-
ary fiction. Unpredictable,
and sometimes eccentric to
the point of infuriating his
readers, he is an establish-
ed 'experimental author,
and much of his writing is
not unlike thinking aloud
(though the fact that he has
had to write frequently, and
under pressure, may have
something to do with this).
Farmer is inconsistent
and knows it - revels in it,
in fact. He is prone to throw
away some excellent ideas
(the kind many authors wait
around for years to hit
them), into a junkheap of a
book, and call it a literary
joke. He has even satirized
his own more serious work.
Hisrep doesn't suffer how-
ever. His readership has
come to expect this sort of
thing from him.

For the first time this season ECU head coach Pat Dye
can brag about the Pirate offense, simply because of the
irates 38-9 shelling of Southwestern Louisiana last

good execution in the USL game.

against the Cajuns and played well in the secondary. The
Edenton native returned a punt 64 yards for a touchdown in
the second quarter but the play was called back because of a
clipping penalty on the three yard line.
TEXAS-ARLINGTON head coach Bud Elliott had an
interesting comment about his Mavs at his weekly press

pleasing to the fifth year Pirate coach. He said the entire

Dye had special praise for guard Mitchell Johnson.
"Mitchell did a super job said Dye. "He's come a long
way since he's been here. He is the perfect example of what
hard work will do. M itchell also exemplifies how rewarding
coaching can be for me, watching an individual grow from a
below average player who had excuses for everything to a
super offensive lineman with no excuses whatsoever. Right
now, Mitchell is as outstanding an offensive lineman as we
have on the squad
Dye continued his praise for the offense by noting that
ends Terry Gallaher and Billy Ray Washington both had
their best performances of the season Saturday.
The Pirate defense, which has played superbly all
season, was not forgotten by Dye. "We had yet another
great game defensively said Dye. "The entire line played
well. Oliver Felton and John Morris had an excellent game.
And Mike Brewington did it again. He seems to get better
and better. He's probably the most physical linebacker
we've ever had here. Gerald Hall (safety) played like his old

Dye mentioned that though the Pirate defense was not
loaded with superstars, they had become a good unit
because of togetherness.
The Pirate coach also said that the defense would have
to continue their stellar effort in the upcoming game this
Saturday against Texas-Arlington.
Texas-Arlington hasn't won yet, but they have a lot of
talented offensive people said Dye. "They have a great
quarterback, who can really run, and some excellent
offensive backs. Their offense is averaging 368 yards
per game. Their overall average per rush is 4.9 yards.
That's very impressive. The offensive line is big and strong.
They will def inately present us with some problems
"Defensively, they feel they have the three best
linebackers on any one team in Texas noted Dye. "The
defensive line is big and strong. We don't know what to

Sports Editor
The University of
Texas-Arlington and ECU
have quite a few similar-
ities among themselves.
Both the Movin' Mavs and
the Pirates run the Wish-
bone and both teams have
compiled some impressive
offensive statistics during
their first four games.
Turnovers? Like ECU,
Texas-Arlington has pro-
duced plenty of them in just
four games. The Mavs have
fumbled the ball away 12
times this season and have
had three passes inter-
cepted while the .Pirates
have committed a whop-
ping total of 19 turnovers in
four games.

all similarities between the
Pirates and the Mavs a-
bruptly en.1s. ECU brings a
2-2 record into Saturday
night's contest while
Texas-Arlington is0-4.

straight contests since
then. Last week the Mavs

stical battle said Texas-
Arlington head coach Bud

conference Monday after
noon. "We had more yards

penalties really hurt us.

continue to plague us. It's
something we're going to
have to work on in practice
this week. But we have just
got to start winning. There

might be the best motto for
ECU split end Terry Gal-
laher, but the compact
receiver is certainly hard to
overlook this fall and is
making a lot of noise in the
Pirate attack.
He opened his senior
season already ranked as
the top receiver in the
history of the school with
1,214 yards, but he wasn't
satisfied with that total.

lington, the 5-9 wide re-
ceiver from Warner Robins,

whether I catch a pass or
not explained the sure-
fingered Gallaher. "Of

though. But, what I really
enjoy is seeing ECU win, no

With Gallaher in the
game all the Pirates have is
a man who always get in
position to make a block,
almost never misses any-
thing thrown close to him,
and is a threat to score from
anywhere on the field.
"My blocking is a little
different than most. I don't
overpower a whole lot of
people Gallaher explain-
ed, flashing a wide, toothy
smile that would easily rival
President Carter's grin. "I
sort of have to sneak up on
people to block them.
Sometimes just running
them far enough away from
the play accomplishes the
same thing as a bone-
crushing block
Gallaher make light of
his dimunitive stature when
it comes to the blocking
wars, but he uses good
technique and tenacity to
overcome any shortcomings

expected to have.

defensive cohorts have performed brilliantly during the first
four games of the season.

total yards and eight first downs.

"We play together as a unit out there Clark said.
"They're no individuals. When somebody makes a good
play we slap him on the beck and let him know we all
appreciate it.
"We set goals each week. We went to try to limit each
team to less than 100 yards rushing and 100 yards passing.
We accomplished our goal against Southwestern Louisiana,
bu coach Dye makes sure we take one game at a time.
The 6-1, 225 pounder from Robersonville currently
ranks sixth on the team in tackles with 23 and has also been
credited with two quarterback tacks and a caused fumble.
However, Clark says a pre-season hand fracture has
continuedto bother him and that his best performances
still lie ahead.
"I haven t played the type game I'm supposed to. but
I'm gradually coming back Clark said. "The injury
bothered me for awhile and I was really dragging around in
practice. I'm still not playing that well, but things will get
More often than not, fumbles have put the defense in
holes in several crucial situatons this season which may
have stirred some grumbles from the other side of the line
but Clark says it forces the Pirates to work even harder
"Everyone's been down on the offense this season, but
not us explained Clark. "If they can't put together a
scoring drive or can't pick up a first down1, it forces us to
work harder. We want to get them that turnover that can
turn things around.
"Then when they come up with a big play or a
touchdown, it's our job to go out there and protect the lead
for them. When they're playing well it makes us go out
there and try to play even better
Saturday the Pirates will face the University of
Texas-Arlington another team which runs the wishbone and
does it quite well. The Movin Mavs are averaging over 250
yards on the ground and over 100 yards through the air.
"They've got a big offensive line and they come off the
ball real well from what I've seen in the films, noted
Clark. "Even though they're 0-4 we cant look at them that
way. It could be a turning point in their season if they beat
"The wishbone is a tough offense to defend against, but
since we've seen it all the time on our practice fieid it may
be a little easier to work against. But we cant afford to
relax against any teams the rest of the year. We've been
working iust as hard this week as we did the last two weeks.
Like the rest of his teammates, Clark has now put the
losses to North Carolina and N.C. State behind. Certainly
they're games the Pirates might have won, but neither one
of the setbacks have ended ECU'S season.
"We knew we could have beaten North Carolina or N.C.
State, and with a little more effort we may have just pulled
them off Clark said. "But you've got to pick things up
and go on to the next game. Last weeks win over
Southwestern Louisiana was the beginning of whole new
season for us, and the way I figure it we're 1-0. "If we can
go on and win the rest of the games I'll feel like I

The story goes on and on.
Will this week continue
this strange trend? No one
knows. Here's a glance at
the games:
These two teams may
battle it out for wild-card
playoff spot. Both have
played great football so far.
The Oilers get the nod but
only by a "razor's" edge.
The Bears have run into
the difficult part of their
schedule. The Raiders' loss
to New Engalnd will not
help Chicago at all. John
ladden should have his
group brewing. This spells
out TROUBLE to the Bears.
The Falcons are
another one of those disap-
pointments of '78. The
Giants, on the other hand,
have performed well under
the direction of quarterback
Joe Pisarcik. The Giants
improve their record to 4-1
with this victory.
The Buccaneers upset
the Vikes two weeks ago.
But Fran Tarkenton and
company rebounded with a
biggin over Chicago last
Monday night. Now the
Vikings feel they have a
matter to settle with the
Bucs. They should be cele-
brating after the game.
This is by far the most
important game of the
week. The Cowboys, simpiy
must win. A loss would
drop them two games be-
hind the Redskins. The
Redskins are undefeated
and playing well. Joe
Theisman is having a super
year, as is John Rigglns.
The game is being played
in Washington, but look for
Dallas to win what should
bean extremely exciting

The Rams have adjust-
ed well to all their coaching
changes. Now they are
ready to fulfill all the
promise they have had for
the last several years. New
Orleans should find them
very hard to handle.
The Eagles are playing
better than the Colts at this
point. But the feeling here
is that the Colts will come
through once more In the
clutch for coach Ted Mar ich-
broda. If Bert Jones ever
returns, the Colts will be
better than just the second-
rate team they have shown.
The Steelers shoulo
get a big boost from their
thrilling overtime win over
Cleveland last week. The
Jets receive an opposite
affect due to the injury to
quarterback Richard Todd,
who suffered a broken bone
in last week's game with
Washington. The Steeler
defense is solid, and Terry
Bradshaw always seems to
come through in the clutch.
He needn't worry about a
comeback this week,
This is more of aguess
than anything else. Both
teams have had off and on
moments thus far. Look for
Joe Ferguson's passing to
pull the Bills away victor-
Jim Zorn will give the
"Orange Crush" a lot to
worry about Yet theyshould
be up to it. The Bronco
offense always seems to
score just enough points to
win. This week is no
Miami was soundly bea-
ten by Philadephia last
week. This doesn't sit very
well with Dolphin coach
Don Shula. It's too bad
he'll have to take out his
frustrations on a nice guy
like Bud Wilkinson.
The Patriots have play-
ed inconsistently thus far.
They have lost to Washing-
ton and Baltimore. Yet they
upset mighty Oakland 21-
14 last week. They should
get things in order against
the disappointing (yes, yet
another one) Chargers, who
are only 1-3.
Both teams are bitter
disappointments to their
managements at this time.
The Bengals simply have
too much talent to continue
in their losing ways. San
Francisco should become
their first victim of the
Seahawk quarterback
The Packers are a big
surprise thus far with a 3-1
record. Detroit is off to a
horrendous start. Both pat-
terns remain the same this
