He said the entire pro-
ject's administrative and
planning work was done by
the cadets, and that the
entire project would be
broken down and analyzed
in order to offer sug-

Tadlock praised his ca-

efforts of each individual to
make the drive a success.
He said also that each
cadet would recieve a grade
for his or her participation
in the drive.
According to Beth Kim-
ball, a cadet in charge of
administrative aspects of
the drive, long waiting lines
posed a problem.
Kimball said the lines
were caused because there
were not enough nurses to
process the students.
24 stations were set up
and stayed full from open-
ng to closing, she said. The
proiect was carefully ob-
served and records were
kept of the slack times, the
busy times, and the aver-
age times it took to be
processed and to donate,
according to Kimball.
According to Tadlock,
the main concern of the
students was not in giving
the blood but in the long
waiting lines.

Davis said a person
does not have to be in the
writing program to be a
part of the writers' guild.
"There are serious and
dedicated writers around
here and not all are in the

They are in other fields
and do not have the time to
devote to both as major
areas of study, he added.
"The guild hopefully
will do what a good writing
program does
Davis said this group of
writers will share their
knowledge with other stud-
"Writing can be
taught Davis stated. "It
takes a joint effort of all
that know how Two or
three cannot do it alone
"We have to start
somewhere, maybe this or-

If the group approves,
different committees may
be established to keep the
group active and in close
touch with the administra-
tion. Davis commented
According to Davis the
committee will provide
checklists for writers on
professional standards and
set up film series directed
towards writers.
Davis said the group
may want to create files for
writers' use
The files would probab-
ly contain booklists of diffe-
rent writers, biographies,
examples of different types
of stories, other interests
directed towards the writer
and writing, added Davis

Out of the closet
There is an item on the upcoming California
ballot known as Proposition Six, a proposal to
ban homosexual teachers from public schools.
This question is the most recent in the national
backlash against gay rights. Voters are under
the impression that when they approve such
anti-gay ordinances they are voting agaisnt
homosexuality; instead they are saying that
any minority's civil rights can be revoked with
the pull of a lever.
In 1973, the American Psychiatric Associat-
ion stopped classifying homosexuality as an
abnormality to the extent of being a psychosis
or neurosis. It is now classed as a disturbance,
as being deviant from the norm, but not to the
extent that it is abnormal.
Anita Bryant's fanatical, at times maniacal,
crusade to "save the children" is, unfortunate-
ly, spreading with the growing conservative
trend in politics. Her argurment of homosexual
recruting" (as if there were some under-
ground organization of gays offering life
enslavement) in the schools is unfounded, and
her claim some years ago that the drought then
plaguing California was God's punishment to
California for passing pro-gay legislation is
Throughout history, gays have contributed
to the advancement of western civilization,
most notably in the lively arts, but also in
science and athletics.
Government has no right to legislate
morality. The activities between consenting
adults is of no concern to a Government.
Attempts to enforce such laws involve
frightening invasions of privacy and
Orwellian surveillance.
Gays always have and always will be with
us. Many societies learn to accept it, such as
ancient Greece, where it was common. It is
time the American public realized that fact and
learned to accept homosexuals as individuals,
not as a threatening "Them"

Asbestos can be deadly
VALLEJO. CA � Dominador Guerrero sits in his
wheelchair in the shadow of the union hall, just out of reach
of the summer sun. With him his Joel Koch, a young
therapist at the hospital where Guerrero is a heart patient.
Guerrero is 71, a Filipino immigrant who came to
America years ago to find work. He found it, and it may now
be klUng him.
"I was a mechanic at the Hunters Point shipyard in San
Francisco from 1948 to 1966 he says in softly accented
English. 'There was lotsof asbestos in the air there, i knew
it was there, but I didn't know it could hurt you. I only found
out a few years ago. after I quit, that it could make you
He pulls on a cigarette, and Dominador Guerrero
smiles. His eyes drift across the parking lot to the mobile
government van where, in a few minutes, he will be tested
for asbestosis. lung cancer, and mesthelioma, a rare cancer
of the chest and stomach lining unheard of 20 years ago.
Only people who have been heavily exposed to asbestos
are known to get mesothelioma. It is always fatal.
Guerrero is one of 2,000 past and present shipyard
workers being tested at several sites around the San
Francisco Bay Area, where upwards of 250,000 workers
have been exposed in the shipyards on the docks since
World War II.
Today the clinic is in Vallejo, a small industrial city
northeast of San Francisco. Vallejo is near by the Mare
Island Navy Yard, where 5,000 people work with asbestos
and where, last year, 59 percent of a small group of workers
were found to have highly abnormal chest X-rays.
The free screening clinic is the brainchind of Dr. Phil
Polokoff. a 32-year-old specialist in occupational health at
Herrick Hospital in nearby Berkeley.
This is the first study of its kind in the country
Polokoff says. "Others have been done at particular
workplaces, but this one was open to any worker with a
minimum of 10 years' exposure to asbestos who called us.
People called from all over northern California. One guy
called in from South Carolina. See that guy in the camper?"
Polokoff queries, tossing his arm at a Winnebago
lumbering across the lot. "He camped herelastnight. These
people are scared
What s scaring them is an announcement by Health,
Education and Welfare Secretary JosephCalifano last
spring that as many as half of the 11 million Americans
exposed to large amounts of asbestos in the workplace may
eventually die from their exposure.
The first of them are men and women of Dominador
Guerro's generation � workers exposed during and
immediately after World War II, who are just now

beginning to sicken and die after the 10-to-40 year
incubation period that is normal for these diseases.
Asbestos is everywhere in our society: in automobile
brake lining, in heat-resistent potholders, in ceiling
insulation and pipes, in cement � in some 3,000 products,
all told. Valued for its resistance to heat and acidity, it is the
basis of a billion dollar industry that employs 90,000 people.
Asbestos is a mineral found in rock. In its commercial
torm, it isa white, fiberous substance.
These fibers, microscopic in size, are easily inhaled,
whence they lodge in the lungs. Scar tissue forms around
the embedded fibers, making it difficult to breathe. This
can weaken the heart, as well as the lungs, resulting in a
slow, silent death by suffocation, or sudden death from a
heart attack.
Asbestos workers develop lung cancer eight times as
often as the general population, and asbestosis � also
known as "white lung" � more often than that.
Asbestosis results in shortness of breath, chest pains, a
nagging cough. It is untreatable and incurable, and is often
These statistics are all the more appalling when one
realizes that they are avoidable. While government and
industry have only recently acknowledged the lethal
qualities of asbestos, medical researchers have known
about them for decades.
According to reseaarch cited by Bob Fowler, an
associate of Polokoff s at the Berkeley-based Western
Institute for Occupational Environmental Sciences
(WIOES). "In 1918, 12 years before the relationship
between asbestos exposure and asbestosis was confirmed,
American and Canadian insurance companies stopped
insuring asbestos workers. In 1935, research in the U.S.
and England indicated a link between asbestos exposure
and lung cancer. This link was confirmed in 1955
"There has been a coverup Fowler asserts. "People
just weren't told of the risks. Even now, things are bad.
California, for example, passed a law last year � the first of
its kind in the country � requiring employers who use
cancer-causing agents to give their employees regular
physical exams. But the law isn't worth a damn, because
it's not adequately enforced.
"On the federal level, OSHA (Occupational Safety and
Health Administration) doesn't have enough inspectors and
punitive powers to be effective. Besides, OSHA doesn't
have authority over federal installations, like Mare Island
WIOES, formed only five months ago, can do little about
that. But this screening program is the first step towards
diagnosing the problem and letting affected workers know
where they stand. The Institute plans to tour the country
next spring with an educational program on the dangers of
Already, however, it is running a deficit. A federal grant
of $150,000, some $60,000 from organized labor, and
'v additional private funds
(including Polokoff s own)
leaves WIOES thousands
short of paying for the
screening program. Private
industry has been solicited
for funds, but none have
been forthcoming.
Still, Polokoff, Fowler,
and friends, private cru-
saders with a very public
cause, are determined to
see it through.
"Asbestos affects all of
us Polkoff says. "There's
going to be an epidemic of
asbestos-related disease in
this country in the next
decade. We've only seen

WRC defends campus security
Dear Students:
This letter is being
written to show Women's
Residence Council's sup-
port of a much maligned
group on our campus � the
campus security force. It is
also being written to es-
tablish some of the facts
and fallacies associated
with thisgroup.
The most important fact
to remember about our
police force is that it's
officers are here to protect
not to censor. The security
force is composed of 19
officers, two of which are
They are given a train-
ing period before being
certified to carry a weapon,
and no matter what we are
told at freshman orien-
tation, they do have the
power to arrest.
They are in effect, a
mini-police force patroiing
a mini-city, our campus.
Campus security, like
many other police forces
inspire many different
emotions in our students.
Most of us immediately
resent their presence on
campus and develop nega-
tive attitudes.
Others feel they have a
basis for their resentment
because of an expensive
parking ticket or towing
fee. But remember stu-
dents, our police do not
make the policies, they
merely enforce them.
The major complaints
about our police force
seems to center around the
night shift. Common com-
plaints are that the stu-
dents have to wait for the
officers to open the door
after 1 a.m.
The important thing to
remember about these
complaints is the fact that
our police officers are hu-
mans too! Imagine what
you would feel like after
walking for four hours in 20
degree weather or suffering
through Greenville's fa-
mous monsoon seasons.
Also please examine
what your attitude was at
the time. As for the com-
plaint of the officers open-
ing the door late, these
people do sometimes have
the responsibility of patrol-
ling two or three dorms at
the same time.
They simply cannot be

officers also open the doors

Kales Who Are You
album review refuted
After reading
Edward Kale's review of
the new Who album, we
couldn't let it go without
stating an opposing opin-
ion. Mr. Kale seems to
have totally misunderstood
Townshend's direction at
this time. He also seems to
possess a misconstrued pic-
ture of the Who.
. The record, as far as we
can see, is a reply to those
who have written about the
Who and have kept expec-
tinq Townshend to be the
rock'n'roll punk of the
19fc0 s all his life. Towns-
hor,j s lyrics on "New
Song" and "Who Are you"
deal specifically with his
struggle with his role as the
� grajnddaddy of punk rock.
Townshend has come to
a point of confidence as an
artist once more and ex-
presses himself with the
same inger and joyful
exhilaration that has per-
meated the music of the
Mr. Kale made the
statement that the lyrics
seem to be written simply
to fill space. We don't see
how he has arrived at that
conclusion. We have a
strong feeling that he spent
little time really listening
and assessing what Towns-
hend s trying to convey in
mai oe songs.
Juut a superficial look at
"Guitar and pen" and
"Sister Disco" (Towns-
hend s statement about
disco) show more than
space filler. Along with his
misunderstanding of the
lyrics is his misconception
of bassist John Entwhistle.
Why aren't his songs Who
songs? If "Had Enough"
isn't a Who song, we don't
know what is.
As to the statement
concerning the use of
itrings or "non-rock in-
struments we would like
to remind Mr. Kale of the
W ho's usage of arps (string
synthesizers) on previous
Who albums Quadrophenia
and Tommy.
Mr. Kale needs to
realize that change and
growth are only natural and
that to resist them is
ridiculous. As long as the
Who continue to grow as
creatively as they did on
this album, we will find no
fault. The music must
change, as Townshend puts
it, and people must change
For the Who to produce
a record of solid rock'n'roll
tailored to meet the expec-
tations of those that want
yesterday's music today

music and lyrics would then

The Front Runner
Gay love story is 'contrived'
Staff Wrier
Homosexuals exist. It's a fact of life. And they're not all
transvestitesor fluttering effeminate types.
They're your classmates, your professors, the guys who
put gas in your car, your friends, maybe even your fathers
and brothers. Homosexuals are just people. And people are
everywhere you go, even if you go to ECU.
A friend of mine once recommended The Front Runner
to me as a way to understand the reasons a mutal friend was
gay It seemed like a good recommendation. I love to run
and when the novel first appeared in hardback in 1974 with
its $20,000 advertising budget it was deemed by some
critics to be potentially the first significant and popular gay
love story.
Since then it has undergone at least three paperback
printing, so someone is reading it. It's even been a required
text m some freshman honors seminars here at the Harvard
on the Tar.
So. dnven by a guilty liberal's conscience and a simple
desire to understand something that I found myself facing
daily m college. I read the book. Unfortunately, The Front
Runner proved to be little more than a contrived and
sentimental gay love story with a few beautiful1 passages
about running.
The Front Runner is about the romance between
O.ympic distance runner Billy Sive and his coach, Harlan
Brown. They met as refugees from the straight world at
Prascou CoHege �n Pennsylvania, the private plaything of a
wealthy eastern liberal.
Harlan was a rising, young track coach at Penn State
with a wife and two sons when a rumor that he had shown
sexual interest in one of his runners shattered his existence
there Although the rumor was false it still caused Harlan to
lose both his job and his family.
This divorce from pretense allowed Harlan to live openly
Author's note-David.W. Trevino is an independent liberal
whose views in no way reflect the concensus of
as a homosexual prostitute in the gay ghetto of New York.
He stayed in the city and suffered through a series of cold,
harsh experiences until he was rescued by Joe Prescott to
coach track at his tiny college in Pennsylvania.
Billy doesn't appear on the scene there for four years. In
1974 he and two other international class runners who are
alsogay transfer from the University of Oregon, "the

scholarships have been cancelled because of their

Billy and Harlan fall in love, play out a courtship and get
Billy dreams of pulling a Lasse Viren and winning both
the 5,000 and 10,000 meter races at the Montreal Olympic
Games. H is quest is pedictably made more difficult by the
ire his unabashed homosexuality arises among the track
and field establishment. Obviously, the idea of a faggot
representing the land of the free and the home of the brave
in the Olympics had its inflammatory effects on the less
liberal followers of track in this country, too. Billy and his
two friends are harrassed by the AAU, pilloried in the press
and taunted at meets.
This conflict is really the heart of The Front Runner.
Billy wants to be accepted as a runner, not a gay runner,
just a runner. He doesn't demand to be accepted as a
homosexual anything. Billy wants to be judged only on his
athletic skill and not his sexual preference.
Unfortunately, the way things are today a homosexual

when we make it better.

THE SILVER SURFER streaks into comics.
The Silver Surfer is a 'completely original' comic character
just released by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby
Staff Writer
Another one of Stan Lee's comic book-books is out now,
entitled The Silver Surfer. This differs from the rest of the
series in that it is an all-new, original work.
It also differs from the rest in that it Is not as good.
Lee's other books, which include Origins of Marvel
Comics, Son of Origins of Marvel Comics, Bring on the Bad
Guys, Superhero Women, The Incredible Hulk, and
Greatest Battles of Marvel Superheros, are collections of
reprinted Marvel comic classics from yesteryear.
The Silver Surfer is a completely new comics collection
by Lee and artist Jack K irby.
It's not as good as the old classics partially due to its
tremendous (for a comic) length: 100 pages. Lee simply
couldn't think of enough to fill that amount of space, so the
book suffers from a too-thin plot.
The plot is as follows: Galactus, the super-power
galactic giant whom the Surfer serves, wants to eat the
earth. The Surfer, who for some reason likes human beings,
objects and rebels against his master.
Galactus creates a temptress to entrap the surfer: a
bizarre beauty named Ardina (with golden skin to contrast
with the Surfer's silvery hide). Galactus' creations fall in
love, and both turn aginst him.
The giant wins in the end, however. Though Earth goes
uneaten, the Surfer's brief attempt at rebellion fails and he
becomes Galactus' slave forever.
As this simple storyline is insufficient to last 100 pages,
The Greeting is an 'innovative'album
Assistant Trends Editor
McCoy Tyner in San
Francisco. A jazz man in a
jazz town The Greeting is
the recording of The McCoy
Tyner Sextet in perfor-
mance at the Great Amer-
ican Music Hall. What we
have here is an album of
good music in hip city.
McCoy Tyner's latest
album, The Greeting, is a
disc-full of stirring jazz.
Tyner is one of the major
forces in contemporary
jazz. He is a composer who
admits his debts to precur-
sers like John Coitraine.
The album offers a
varied program of accous-
tic, instrun ental pieces.
Two of the numbers were
previously recorded in
settings: the well-remem-
bered "Fly with the Wind"
appears on this album
dramatically condensed in
siz ��? not in sound from its
original orchestral-strings
arrangement, and "The
Greeting" appears ex-
panded from its original
trio format.
McCoy Tyner's musical
ideas are original and excit-
ing. For instance, "Hand in
hand" is a compelling jazz
composition that utilizes
such unusual instruments
as the berimbau and or-
chestra bells.

classics like Gershwin's

As its title would imply,
"Hand in Hand" possesses
a feeling of universal love
and acceptance. The music
is basic and friendly, with
fascinating flute, sax and
percussive digressions.
"Fly with the Wind" is
a Jazz classic that in its own
rich sound. The band cooks

Tyner is of course bril-
liant on the piano. His style
of playing is bright, ebul-
lient, young and full of
energy. There is strength
which can be felt in even

"Pictures" is a totally
new work by Tyner. It
possesses some of the moat
avant-gard passages on the
album and they always jive
with the cool jazz that
surrounds them.
The song is a cohesive
piece of writing that
reflects the newest influ-
ences as well as the
brilliant creative powers of
its composer.
George Adams and Joe
Ford, each on flute and sax,
give avant-gard perfor-
mances that will set land-
marks in aoioa of that kind.
Tyner's group It surely
one of the most progressive
around that you would still
want to play at a party.
"Naima" is Tyner's tri-
bute to its composer, John
Coitrane. John Coltrane is a
performer and composer
who shaped much of
modern jazz. Tyner plays
"Naima" with a rubato
dreaminess and a nobility
of sentiment.
It is a modern piece,
unmistakably, especially
the way Tyner interprets it,
yet it is far from being dryly
abstract. Tyner approaches
the piece with confidence
and with pure, unsimplif ied
artistic notions in mind.
"The Greeting" is the
title cut of the album. It
begins with a semi-tradi-
ditional, semi-abstract
piano Introduction and then
each instrument enters
with a short solo of Its own.
Some of the beat drum-
work on the album is dona
on "The Greeting Both
Woody Theus on drums
and George Adams on
tenor distinguish them-
selves with excellently well-
executed solos.
Tyner himself is dash-
ingly brilliant, an artist who
performs and composes
with panache and aston-
ishing technical facility. On
his solo piece, "Naima" as
well as on "The Greeting"
Tyner establishes himself
as a piano player of prodi-
gious talent.
McCoy Tyner, although
not a big name on the
popular market, has long
been a name associated
with the most innovative
ideas in jazz. His latest
endeavor, The Greeting,
proves that the ideas are
still coming, and so, the
good music.

the story is padded with side-tracks and sub-plots. One
sub-plot involving a young earth couple the Surfer and
Ardina run into begins promisingly, but leads nowhere,
becoming just more filler.
This is the book's major flaw � the story line is too
stretched out, and becomes boring rather quickly.

Lina Wertmuller's 1976 classic Seven Beauties is the
first offering of the International Film Festival at
Mendenhall Student Center this Sunday. The film will be
shown at four o'clock in the Hendrix Theatre.
Giancarlo Glannini plays the "hero" of this Italian
comedy. Pasqualino. He is an "imitation bandit" whose
macho cole is reminiscent of an absurd Bogart. This film Is
considered by many to be the most important film that
Wertmuller ever made. An "indelible film" by the "Most
important film director since Bergman" is certainly worthy
of some consideration by any film goer, serious or casual.
Pasqualino is a great loser, an imitation bandit,
breadwinner, lover, soldier, whose only grip on selfhood Is
hismachocode, itself a grotesque imitation of the codes of
But Pasqualino has real feeling, especially for women,
and Wertmuller uses this to achieve some of the most
astonishing and profound comedy since the blackest
absurdities in Dostoevski.
The Man Who Loved Women, Francois Truffaut"s most
recent film will be shown in the Curtis Hendrix Theatre this
Sunday at six o'clock. The film has been called Truffaut's
love letter to womankind by no less a critic than Judith
Crist. Bertrand Morane, the film's protagonist is an
intelligent and sensitive man who adore women, all women.
The subject of the film is his memoirs, wherein he
remembers sll of the women that he has ever loved.

Amity ville 'will scare the hell out of you'
Staff Writer
Ever since I was a

horror shows and ghost
stories. I can fondly recall
the excitement with which I
awaited being scared silly
by the late show horror
flicks that my parents let
me stay up and watch on

ror were the ones that I
liked the most. 9
I'm sure that this could
be analyzed by some as
mosochistic tendencies, but
this seems to be the
standard modus operandi
for all buffs. The main
qualification for a good
horror story or movie is its
ability to fulfill the request.

As I recall the ones that
scared me the most, the
ones that caused the most

"Oh pleae scare me
This desire for fright
has evidently carried over
to the present, for there are
still few things that I enjoy
more than a good horror
story. It has been disap-
pointing though, that these
moments of dread have
occurred less and less often
over the past years.
Part of this disparity has
been my growing older,
knowing more about the
world, and consequently
being less apt to frighten.
Also, being a true "horror"
addict and craving fright in
as much quantity as much
of the time as I can get it,
I'm affected like any true
addict, I've built up a
tolerance to horror so that it

The Amityville Horror: A
True Story is an incredibly
fast moving book, each
chapter filled with bizzare,
hair raising events, presen-
ted in suhc a manner as to
satiate even the most hard-
core horror freak.
There are several rea-
sons the book succeeds so
well. The first is that it's
supposed to be a true story
(i do have my doubts.)
Whether you believe in
poltergeist, demonis pos-
session, and just out and
out bizzare supernatural
happenings or not, this
gool makes them seem real.
The preface of the book
(written by a minister, yet)
is his statement of belief in
the supernatural and auth-
enticity of the book. Just
the fact that it's supposed
to be true is what brings it
so close to home and
increases its spine chilling
affect ten-fold.
The style in which the
book is written also lends to
it's horrifying effect. Jay

The A mityville Horror is

was perfect: it was much

note was that it had been

La Viste Merveilleuse (The Marvelous Visit) is a film by
French director Marcel Carne. Carne offers that rare
combination of the very obvious and very delightful. Based
on an H.G. Wells novel, the story is a simple (and
sometimes simplistic) allegory concerning the visit of an
angel to earth.
The film tells what everyone knows�that perfect
are misunderstood and out of place on this imperfect
planet. The angel must learn to wear clothes, to be
deceitful, and not to release animals from their pens. In
short, he must learn to be human, not superhuman, if he
cannot, he is doomed.
The film comments on religion, sexual and non-sexua;
love, charity, kindness, humor, nearly every human foible.
One sees oneself and, hopefully, is not found lacking In
spite of the indictment of man-and-womankmd. the viewer
is left with a feeling of inspiration Intelligence is never
insulted; as Jean Rochereau states in Le Journal de la
Crois, "It is a work in which classicism, the constant
respect for the audience, and the eloquent brevity are that
of a master Simplicity is never stupidity.
The joy of the film is not only in the theme and story of
the film, but also in its sheer physical beauty. Its setting in
the wild, mysterious . astline of Brittany provides
gorgeous photography. The physical beauty of some of the
characters, especially the angel, is equally astounding The

Harlan is crushed at first, but he goes on to find another

Other than the fact that their relationship takes place on

more than offer a voyeuristic peek at "what they do She

descriptions of gay lovemaking gross but it happens

to look at lite as it sometimes is.
The passages dealing with the tranquil agony of running
long distances are beautifully wrought. Warren, a runner
herself, seems much more at home writing about running
than male homosexuality. Whatever the case, she touches
the truth about running several times
The idea of a runner desiring another runner as a lover
is one such truth. At a certain level, tunning becomes a

physical exercise. It's a sensation runners love ana ache

She may or may not understand homosexuality She
didn't make it understandable to me. The Front Runner
says that homosexuals are people, but not why some people
are homosexuals. And the suggestion that societal
inflexibility alone is responsible for the reason that tragedy
seems inalterably interwoven with gay life just isn't
satisfactory. There has to be something more. Whatever it
is, It isn't here.
The Front Runner may provide all the answers to your
questions about homosexuality. I doubt that it will, but it's
not a bad place to start looking for them

Hall tied a school record with 121 yards in punt returns

Since Hall's flashy debut against Southern Miss his

quarter scoring threat
AH my credit for the punt returns has to go to the great

against VMI with four returns for 121 yards "If I get that
holdup at the line of scrimmage, I'm confident I can return
just about anything for a big gain.
A lot also depends on what type of kick I get. I can
usually tell whether the defense is coming down fast before
the kick But that blocking, that's what really counts
Not only did Hall return a punt for a touchdown and
intercepted two passes against the Keydets, he made five
tackles and broke up another pass
He played a super game praised ECU head coach
Pat Dye "The wall was there on the punt return, but he
really scored on hisown. He snaked in and out and then just

Hall from touching the ball Saturday Golden Eagle coach
Bobby Collins has already seen Hall dash into the end zone
once and has had problems all season long with punt
It doesn't really bother me when they start kicking
away from me said Hall, who now ranks seventh in the
nation in punt returns with a 16.6 average. "I figure if they
start concentrating on doing that, the punter will hit some
bad kicks which will give our offense some breaks.
And some "big breaks" like another long punt return
will probably be just what the Pirates need Saturday to
upend Southern Miss.

Collins, Eagles recall
48-0 slaughter in 1976
Assistant Sports Editor
The Southern Mississ-
ippi Golden Eagles must
surely feel that they have a
matter to settle with the
ECU Pirates when the two
squads meet this Saturday
night in Hattiesburg, Miss.
In 1976, the Pirates humil-
iated Coach Bobby Collins
and his Eagles 48-0 in
Ficklen Stadium.
Collins now has little to
say of that game. But he
does recall a certain mem-
ber of that Pirate team that
just so happens to be a
member of the one he must
meet Saturday.
"Certainly we know
Eddie Hicks from the last
time we played them said
Collins. "I lemember his
two touchdowns and I know
he ran for more than 130
yards against us
Collins remarked that
he felt that this year's
Pirate backfield was su-
perior to the one that he
saw in 1976. "I believe that
with Sutton (Theodore) and
Collins (Anthony). they
have an even stronger
backfield than last time
noted the Golden Eagle
Collins also had praise
for the Pirate offensive line
They have a super of-
fensive line to go with those
backs noted Collins.
"We've been very im-
pressed with the way they
get off the ball' on every
Collins also spoke
highly of the Pirate de-
fense. "Defensively, they
have excellent speed and
quickness said the Eagle
coach. "They will give you
a lot of different looks.
They also have a lot of
stars, including Valentine
(Zack), Summer (Tommy),
and Hall (Gerald), just to
mention a few '
Of major concern to
Collins coming into the
contest was his own team's
kicking game and return
coverage. "Then said
Collins, "here they come

soccer were poor, and as a
result, we played a terrible
The first half of play
was marred by numerous
defensive mistakes by both
clubs. The Pirate's lacklus-
ter offense was characteriz-
ed by inconsistent passing
and an inability to keep the
ball away from their goal.

was fast paced as ECU
narrowly missed on shots.
The Pirates just missed on
shots that were just inches
from the scoring goals.

Wesleyan's first goal of
the afternoon came with
only fifty seconds remain-
ing in the first half. A well
placed corner kick from
Wesleyan wing, Ken
Jordan, was driven off the
hands of ECU goalie,
Kevin Tyus, by Vince
Liverman of NCWC to give
Wesleyan a 1-0 lead.
Strangely enough,
Liverman's goal seemed to
awaken the Pirate offense
considerably. But, the
spark was short lived as the
half ended with NC Wes-
leyan ahead 1-0.
The Pirate's enthusiasm
carried over to the opening
minutes of the second half
and peaked with ECU fresh
man Brad Winchell's score
on an assist by teammate
Phil Martin. Winchell's
goal came with 5:14 gone in
the second half and evened
the tally at one apiece.
The rest of the second
half was plagued with
penalties, both on Wesle-
yan and ECU. ECU even
had one penalty called on
one of its trainers for
unsportsmanlike conduct.
Both teams had players to

Young Packers get 'fresh start with Bart'

It's easy to remember
the days when the Green

the National Football
League, and when Coach
Vince Lombardi was king of
the hill Lombardi and the
Packers ruled the NFL like
Then Lombardi left, and so
did the Packer dynasty.
After Lombardi's re-
tirement, the Packers went
through many coaches,
none of which could touch
Lombardi's achievements.
Finally, in 1975, the Packer
front office decided to turn
the head coaching job over
to a pupil of Lombardi. This
man had spearheaded the
awesome Packer offense,
and is called by some, the
greatest quarterback in the
history of of the NFL. This
man. of course, is Bart
For three long years,
Packer fans maintained
faith in Starr. But the team
won only 13 games those
first three years. Things
were as bad as ever.
When this season be-
gan, pressure was placed
on Starr to win, NOW. It
seemed an impossible task
for any man, even Lom-
bardi. Yet Starr has taken
the young Packers and led
them to a 5-1 record. The
biggest win came last week
over Chicago. The Pack is
now firmly entrenched in
first place in the NFC
