Differences may flare
Associated Press Writer
RALEIGH, (AP) - Since
he's been lieutenant gov-
ernor Jimm Green has
often found himself op-
posing Gin. Jim Hunt on
les, and heading into
the 1979 General Assembly
session even more differ-
ences figure to emerge
between them.
Their differences, both
political and personal, are
flare both because
' ' vear ami because of
their conflicting ambitions.
Both could be running for
ernor next vear.
Green opposes Hunt
Green, in a recent
interview, said he is
convinced that Hunt has
already made up his mind
to seek a second term. "I
don think there's any
doubt about that he said.
"I think that's whv he
pushed so hard for
For Green, that leave
three options as the
session opens: He must
find an issue on which to
base a challenge to a
sitting governor of his own
Democratic Partv next
year. Or, he must decide
how to graceful!) seek a
second term himself after
�(�posing in 1977 the
constitutional amendment
that allows him - and Hunt
- to do that.
Or, he must face the
session recognizing that it
is his final one, look for
another political office or
give it all up.
"1 haven't ruled any-
thing out Green said.

no decision, and I won't

One likely battle, Green
hinted, could come over
taxes - not about whether
to reduce them, but over
how to do it.
There are other possible
battlegrounds, too.
One is the state science

a planning appropriation.
Hunt will ask the legisla-
ture for several hundred
thousand dollars to get it
off the ground this year.
Hunt will reveal his tax
plan Jan. 15 in the "state
of the state" speech, and
while the proposal isn't
known now, Green is
against the rebate plan
first suggested by Hunt
last year. Green said he
thinks there is overwhelm-
ing opposition among
legislators that "seals the
doom of any rebate idea
Green prefers a per-

will have his own recom-

Will he be prepared to

Then he returned to
North Carolina to teach art in
the public schools in Wilson.
He taught for 1 1 years but all

the military uniforms from
the da)s of the knights.
He began making mili-

' member running
errands for my mom at an
age when running errands
wasn't exactly what I had
�n mind, and how I
begged, pleaded, and com-
plained about it to no
ava.l. One of my great
errands was to go to the
store from time to time
and buy various items to

One eventful day still

It seems that mom had
run out of sugar and
needed me to go get her
some more. So taking her
dollar I li, out to the store
Once there I found it
impossible to get to the
sugar without walking past
the candy. I slowed up and
got to figuring as I did
once in a while when
forced to by lack of better
things to do. It is a known
fact that candy had quite a
bit o( sugar in it.
Mom would probablv
use the sugar in a c,ke for
us, and I would eat most
of the cake, and therefore
most of the sugar. Well
being an astute business-
man, I figured I held the
majority of the stock, and
therefore control, and I
decided that the sugar,
since most of it was meant
for me anyway, should be
in the form of candy. And
the candy made my trip
home glorious.
The reception at the
house, though, wasn't
quite as glorious. Dad had
a big leather strap (he was
quite a large man, a 48
waist I believe) with which
he received his exercise.
Further details should not
be necessary.
I remember dad exer-
ting at another time
during my childhood. He
would pay me to mow the
yard once a week. One
time I asked for my monev
m advance, and what boy
can be expected ,o rem-
ember to mow a yard with

wouldn't have afforded h.m
the luxury of his exercise
per.ods. I have learned fr ,m

Howell's biblical view ofgays rebutted
In response to Mr
Frank Howell's letter in
your Dec. 7 issue, let me
make a couple of points.
first, the burden of my
letter (regarding the anon-
ymous homosexual who
wroter earlier and whose
letter sounded like a sui-
cide note) was that our
society is often insensitive.
Mr. Howell's letter illu.
strated the point; he spent
'our columns "laying
down the law" from thJ mj
Bible. Interestingly enough, neW8DaDPr
he never mentioned John PCI
J6J nor d�d he offer one

be legalistic; he overlooks
the fact that no man enters

works, but enters by way
of the one good work, that

� behalf of hopeless
My second point is that
Mr; HoHowell presumed
that I had attempted "to

was that God loves the

Writer William S. Cohen s poetry revea,
exceptional perception and sensitivity'
Trendc V.i � M nanas, ttinrAm � k 'i
as being a
congressman from Maine,
William S. Cohen is a poet
ol exceptional perception
and sensitivity. His recent-
ly published first book. Of
I and Seasons, is a
genuine!) pleasureable ex-
perience to read.
In thirty-six poems he
writes .ompellingly about
the beaut) of America, of
V m England childhood
and strong patriotism, of
love and death, of the
importance of friendship as
as the need for
tude, of his family, and
� government that he
has learned the
o( V atergate.
His images are dis-
tinct!) American. Take for
tance these vivid lines
n the poem "Hancock

place where the man grew
The memory of

and quick hands;
the barber who

who slept on steps and

canned heat

reeling, red-faced
The book is divided into
fourteen sections, each one
prefaced by a prose
passage that, coupled with
the poems, takes one into
Bill Cohen's life to reveal
the man and his thoughts.
In his introduction
Cohen describes his book,

Cohen, as congressman,
leads a very active political
life and lives for the most
ol the year in Washington.
He is thus near the seat of
power in this country,

about Washington and its
machinations are fascina-
The poet, as begits his
alter-self. the politician,
has a great enthusiasm
and optimism about the
possibilities of the country.
He explains his feeling in
the prose section that
precedes the poems about

of new faces, a certain
hope flickers in all but the
most hardened hearts of
Washington-based journal-
ists and new commentators
that life somehow will be
better, the economv will
improve, the national
malaise will evaporate.
"It is the belief that
the world is still maleable
and our country can be
squeezed and reshaped to
fit its former greatness and
once again glow in a
gilded era of history.
"It is the same
optimism that each spring
brings, the sensuous
feeling of dull roots
stirring under the layers of
cold earth, of brittle
branches leaking green
leaves to flutter in the
currents of warm wind
Bill Cohen lives as
imaginatively as he writes.
In 1972, he walked 600
miles through Maine's
Second Congressional Dis-
trict while campaigning for
a seat in the House of
Bepresentatives; he was
elected to Congress in that
year, was re-elected in
1974, and again in 1976.
Cohen was named a
Fellow at Harvard's John
F. Kennedy Institute of
Politics in 1972. In 1974,
Time selected him as one
America's future leaders,
and in 1975 he was named
as one of the Ten
Outstanding Young Men in
America by the U.S. Union
Chamber of Commerce.
Even though Cohen
loves our government he
can also clearly see its
imperfections and cruelties.
In his "Song of Song My"
he deals with tragedy of

Fodor captured one of
the violin prizes
at Mosi ov� s Tchaikovskv
International Competition
in 1975. His was the most
celebrated performance bv
an American in the Soviet
Union since Van Cliburn's
piano triumph twenty years
ago. No American violinist
has ever done so well;
Fodor tied for second place
vMth two Russians, but no
tirst prize was given.
Fodor kept quiet about the
second prize, but manv
listeners felt the decision
was a political one; 14 of
the 19 judges were from
communist countries, and
the judge from North
Vietnam chain-smoked
throughout Fodor's perfor-
Nevertheless, the per-
formance was a triumph.
His Russian audience de-
manded four encores.

many first-class bookings

Fodor carefully guards
his soloist status. "At the
age of eight, I knew I
wanted to be a soloist. If I
had ever thought I would

I would probably have

dor also calls himself a

father calls him a "ham
At any rate, he never gets
nervous, and feels that
personality is the key to
his performance.

nique was probably esta-
blished by the time he was
fifteen; he's been working
on the glitter since then.
No one should have the
impression, though, that
Fodor is not totally serious
about music. He has been
a dedicated student since
age 12, when he won his
first music scholarship. He
studied at Julliard, at In-
diana University, and with
Jascha Heifetz. Heifetz
made him trim his long
hair and abandon (tempor-
arily) his motorcycle. Fear-
ing for Fodor's hands,
Heifetz unsuccessfully tried
to separate Fodor from
horses, which he trains in
his spare time.

Bob James rates as popular jazz innovator
Staff Writer
. Bob James is the best composer-arranger working in
popular jazz today.
Critics do not realize this fact, yet. Most will not
accept him until his platters have become fossilized on
the shelves in some dust-laden, musty musical mausoleum.
I am not a critic. I am a BJ fan.
Critics do not spend money on albums. They don't
have to.
1 actually buy James' work. I have an advanced
promotional copy of his sixth effort, Touchdown, in front
ot me at this moment. I will go out and pick up another
as soon as possible.
Most non-jazz listeners must be asking, "Who the hell
is. Bob James?"
Most of us are already familiar with his work. Without
being aware ot it he has written the charts for andor
produced Paul Simon's Rhymin' Simon and Still Crazy
After All These Years; the two Kenny Loggins solo
albums; LPs by Roberta Flack, Blood, Sweat, and Tears,
Phoebe Snow, Barbra Streisand, and a veritable catalog of
arrangements tor other of the better pop performers.
In addition, and more importantly, Bob James is
largel) responsible for the soul-rock eclectic movement that
started in jazz in the late 60's at CTI Records and which
ha already expanded into ever corner of the popular
music world.
Nearly anyone of stature to emerge in jazz in the past
years has, at one time or another, worked with Bob
All one must do to confirm his genius is to listen to
powerful charts written for Graver Washington on
"Mister Magic" and "Feels So Good Then, compare
them to Washington's lesser efforts without James.

But. a critic doesn't see thi-
A critic's chief problem is that he is a horizontal man.
He is still buried in what was being done 20 to 30 years
He doesn't realize that with each and every generation
arts and artists just keep getting better.
Just as James Dickey's and Robert Lowell's techniques
as poets are more advanced than Lord Byron's or John
Keats just as Ali is a far greater boxer than Gene
Tunney, so the jazz artists working today are better
craftsmen than their peers were 25 years ago.
Dexter Gordon and John Coltrane, for instance, are
consummate musicians. Many times, however, what they
play is quite dated in comparison to the better stuff being
written by the better musicians today. Likewise, 10 years
from now, the quality of performerperformance will be
still even more advanced.
But, at this moment, Bob James is the best in the
business. Yet, he is not so much a prolific keyboardist as
he is an arranger.
It has been said of Count Basie that the entire band is
his instrument. The same statement is definitely true of
Most of the time he has been content to write his
charts, stay in the background and let his sidemen handle
the front-line play. And with sidemen like the ones on
Touchdown, who wouldn't be content to lay back?
In addition to Bob himself, old friend Hubert Laws is
on flute; Eric Gale does the chores on electric guitar; Ron
Carter is on string bass; Gary King does the honors on
electric bass; Steve Gadd and Idris Muhammad alternate
on drums; Dave Sanborn does duty on alto sax; and Earl
Klugh plays a splendid acoustic guitar.
In addition, Jon Faddis and Randy Brecker head the
trumpet section; and Wayne Andre and the late Dave
Bargeron of "Blood, Sweat and Tears" are featured on
As a critic, 1 am obliged at this point to supply my
pretentious, multi-syllabic explication of what Bob is doing
on each cut of his album.
But, again I am not a critic. I am a fan.
And as a fan, I realize that analyzing this music
molests and violates its simple freedom.
And as a fan, I only want to say that Bob James is a
vertical man. He knows that art cannot remain stationary.
It must change and grow.
But, as a critic, I must also say that there are only
three outstanding selections on this album.
They include "Angela" (the theme from the television
series "Taxi"), "Sun Runner and the title tune
All three are at leasts partially riff tunes. But, these
are not the same sort of predictable riffs that were
employed prevalently during the big band period. Since
Bob has a doctorate in musical composition from
Columbia, his riffs show a marked classical influence.
All three songs are also pure examples of the fulfilled
promise of human potential. Maslow should tape and use
them as motivational exercises. I
"Angela opening side one, is the most slow-paced
and emotional set on the LP. It is a very understated piece
and the understatement works well. Bob takes a sweet,
tired old love theme and interjects fresh spirit into it, just
as surely as Jesus did the same for Lazarus.
He is lent great support on a short solo by Eric Gale,
whose unique, simplistic style is well-used here. Even
though Gale is in no sense a quality player, James does
have the ability to evoke a certain "soulfulness" from
him. But, the real credit on this track belongs to Bob
himself, for his lazy, easy, right hand single-line style
work on Fender Rhodes throughout. An unaccompanied
flute solo by Phil Bodner on the opening and closing eight
bars ties this simple ballad together beautifully.
"Touchdown" is basically the only non-acoustic cut on
the album. It is also the only track on which David

There are approximately 40,000 living alumni of East Carolina.
This appointee will report directly to the Chancellor and will admini-
ster and coordinate activities and units such as News Bureau, E.C.U. Founda-
tion, Institutional Research, Alumni Affairs, Deferred Giving, Planning
Office, and corporate and foundation relations. This appointee will have
opportunity to recruit most of the staff for this expanded area at the

On another album by another artist, however, Nights
might be entirely acceptable. It's just that I have come to
expect more than great players playing roultnely great
sets from Bob James.
To borrow literally from the Jerry Ford School of
Kindergarten Metaphors, the final score on Bob James'
latest album is three Touchdowns, one field goal, and he
even had to punt the ball away once.
But, Bob James is an artist. On the two weaker cuts,
it is easy enough to sense his boredom with the plush
style that he has developed on his first six albums.
He knows that he can't stay in one place but just so
long. Look for a change of style on his next outing.

Larry Gillman called last week's win over Iono his
biggest victory at ECU, but less than one week later his
Pirate- scored an even bigger upset.
Down by as many as eight points in the second half,
ECl came from behind in the final minutes of play to
post a narrow 56-55 victory over highly regarded South
Carolina which undoubtedly marked the school's biggest
basketball win in recent history.
ECl used clutch free throw shooting down the stretch
to walk away with their second triumph in as many games
and have now won three of its last four games. The
Pirates evened their overall record to 6-6 while South
Carolina fell to 6-4 for the year.
We didn't play a picture perfect game out there
tonight, but we played with a lot of guts explained a
relieved Gillman after the game. "Give the kids a lot of
credit. The) gave great effort throughout the entire game
for a young team they showed a lot of poise there at the
For Gillman and the rest of the 6300 fans on hand the
game ended not one second too soon. ECU guard George
Maynor was touted by South Carolina's Kevin Dunleaw
with lour seconds remaining and the Pirates leading bv
two 55-53.
After a Gamecock timeout, Mavnor sank the front end
ol a one-and-one but missed Ins second attempt which
South Carolina quickly rebounded. Mike Dovle raced
downcourt and popped in a neat 35 footer, but 'the bucket
still left the highly favored Gamecocks one point behind at
the buzzer.
"I was real thankful George hit that first free throw
because I just knew Doyle was going to hit that shot
Gillman sa,d. 'But it's real nice to beat a team the
cahber of South Carolina at home. ECU has never beaten
anybody this good at home so it's really nice for a
change. This certainly has to be ECU's biggest win "
Although both teams shot poorly in the game and
committed its share of turnovers, the Pirates continued to
stage comebacks when South Carolina appeared on the
verge ol breaking the game wide open

frustrating one so far. The Bucs have dropped their only
dual match to N.C State and have put together subpar
performances in both the Monarch and Wilkes Open
But ECU head coach Bill Hill hopes his injury-plagued
Pirates can piece things back together Thursday night
when ECU squares off against Atlantic Coast Conference
rival North Carolina in Minges Coliseum. The match will
begin at 8:00.
"It's been a somewhat frustrating year because of all
the injuries we've had admitted Hill Tuesday before
practice. "Butch Revils and Vic Northrup have both been
out most of the season and we've been forced to wrestle a

Frosh Tyson cast in early 'star' role
Sports Editor
It seem- every season the Pirate wrestling team is in
dire straits of a heavyweight, ECU coach Bill Hill just
wanders next door to the football office, grabs a massive
defensive tackle and puts a jersev on him.
And the switch from the gridiron to the wrestling mat
ha- been extremely successful over the past few years
Uilhe Bryant won back-to-back Southern Conference
championships and was a two-time member of the Pirate's
NCAA team while at ECU. D.T. Joyner finished last
season with a 20-2 record and was ranked all season long
a- one of the top heavyweights in the country by National
Mat News.
And with Joyner out this season with ft fractured wrist,
freshman Mindell Tyson promises to become the next
all-star performer for the Pirates at heavyweight. "HE's
got excellent size and a good knowledge of wrestling to
become a really outstanding heavyweight before he leaves
here savd Pirate coach Bill Hill. "He moves well on his
feet and uses his weight against his opponent when he
needs to. He's got some big shoes to fill this season with
D T out for the year, but I'm looking for good things out
of him.
Besides football, Tyson, a massive 280 pounder, found
time to destroy opponents on the wrestling mat as well at High School in Virginia Beach, Va. He finished
second m Virginia in the state championships his senior
year and posted an impressive 18-5 record.
"I really didn't plan on wrestling when I came to ECU
but Coach Hill talked to me about it and asked me if 'i
would be interested explained the personable Tyson. "I
still wasn't real sure about it when I came here, but I
quickly realized that one sport wasn't going to keep my
weight down. So when I found out D.T. wasn't going to
wrestle things just kind of worked out for me
Tyson, like most collegiate wrestlers likes the
individuality of the sport and has worked hard over the
last few weeks grasping some new moves and techniques
he can use during the rest of the season.
"On the football field you make a mistake and it's a
team error and sometimes your mistakes get covered up "
Tyson said. "But wrestling is a completely different sport
It s one-on-one, you against the other guy right out there
in the open. I like that though. It makes you think. You
have lo gel oU, .here and outsmart vour opponen.

Super Bowl XHI offers exciting,
even matchup between 'the best9
Assistant Sports Editor
The upcoming Super
Bowl matchup featuring
the Dallas Cowboys and
the Pittsburgh Steelera ap-
pears, at least on paper, to
hav the potential to b
more exciting and even-
fought than any of the
previous twelve games
played on Super Sunday.
If for no other reason
this game should draw
extra-curricular attention
because it provides the
first rematch in the history
of the Super Bowl. These
two clubs met in Super
Bowl X with the Steelers
taking a narrow 21-17 vic-
tory .
That game is consi-
dered by most observers to
be the best of the Super
Bowl's. So, naturally, the
rematch should prove to be
very exciting.
nother big sidelight to
this ear's game is the fact
it the victor vecomes the
fist three-time winner in
per Bowl history. The
Steelers won Super Bowl's
IX and X consecutively.
The Cowboys were winners
in Super Bowl XI and
number XII.
One thing that the ex-
perts like about this year's
matchup is the fact that
both clubs involved in the
Super Bowl are near unan-
imously considered the two
very best teams in the
NFL. Usually one of the
teams involved in this big
game is somewhat of a
Cinderella team. Denver's
appearance last year is a
prime example.
Because Dallas and Pit-
tsburgh are considered the
League's best, one must
feel that this game is
indeed the true champion-
ship of professional foot-
Both teams have very
few weaknesses. Both of-
fenses are explosive as
dynomite, while the de-
fenses are as still as
If one was to look for
the crucial matchup in this
game, they would nearly
have to consider the battle
that will take place be-
tween the Steeler offensive
line and the Dallas defen-
sive line.
The Steeler blockers,
headed by All-Pros Mike
Webster and Jon Kolb are
an awesome group. All
year long they have pro-
vided their quarterback,
NFL MVP Terry Bradshaw
more than ample time to
throw. He is, after all, one
of the few NFL quarter-
backs to avoid serious
injury this year. Also, the
line constantly opens gap-
ping holes for backs Fran-
co Harris and Rocky Ble-
The Dallas defensive
line, the backbone of their
"Doomsday Defense is
also an awesome machine.
Headed bv stars Harvey
Martin, Ed "Too Tall"
Jones, and Randy White,
the line has caused havock
in opposing backfields
throughout the season.
The matchup between
these two powerful lines
may decide the outcome of
this game. Forget about
Tony Dorsett, Roger Stau-
bach, Mean Joe Greene,
and Jack Ham. They will
play their parts in the
outcome of this game for
But, rather, one should
focus their attention on
battle in the tranches. For,
if the Steeler offensive line
can hold back Randy,
Harvey, and Too Tall, and
therefore allow Bradshaw
time to work his wonders,
Dallas may be in for a
long day.
On the other hand, if
the "Doomsday Defense"
penetrates the Steeler
front, Bradshaw will have
little time to work and his
hands full.
An interesting thought
for a very thought-provo-
king game, huh?
