SU president chosen
News Editor
Charles Sune, chairperson of the Student Union
Major Attractions Committee, has been named
pres.dent of the Student Union for the 1979-80
school year. The announcement was made by the
Student Union Board of Directors, Wednesday.
Sune, a junior political science major from
Kaleigh, wdl officially take office on April 6
According to Sune, until that time he will be
preparing and organizing for next year's
Sune explained that he will be reviewing the
positions of committee chairpersons, and the Student
lnion budget.
"Hopefully by the time April gets here ve will
be all set up tor the next year said Sune. "This
is a good transition period for the new president.
At least I'll know what's going on
Sune speculated on some of his general plans for
next year. He said that his most important objective
for next year will be to make the students aware of
what the Student Union really is. Sune said the the
Student Union has a definite identity crisis on
campus and he hopes to adjust that problem.
"A lot of people don't realize what the Student
Lnion is Sune explained. "Some people think that
the Student Union is just another name for
Mendenhall Student Center
Sune said that the Student Union works closely
with the Mendenhall organizations but that the two
groups are two distinct organizations. Sune also said
that the Student Union is often confused with the
Student Government Association (SGA). "At one
time the Student Union was a part of the SGA but
now they are two separate organizations said
According to Sune, the Student Union has
already made a few attempts to straighten out the
confusion. For instance, the Student Union printed
semester calendars which were distributed to the
Sune said that there will be an advertising
campaign to take care of the problem. He also said
that there has never been an effort to solve that
problem and he plans to end the confusion.
Another of Sune's plans while in office is to
maintain the present programming offered by the
Student Union but to expand on that effort. Sune
said that he would like to see the film area of
programming expand to Thursday nights as well as
the weekends.
"I don't want to make any changes in the
committees. We have 11 committees now and I
don't see any changes that need to be made Sune
Sune reported that the Student Union plans a
survey of the student body soon. He said that the
random survey will be made to find out the
entertainment needs of the students.
"We haven't been keeping in contact with the
students like we should said Sune. "We plan to
find their needs in entertainment so we can
possibly accomodate them
The survey will be made either before the end
of this semester or the beginning of next fall.
Sune has been involved with the Student Union
for the past two years. He first served as
chairperson of the Popular Entertainment Commit-
tee. This year he is serving as chairperson of the
Major Attractions Committee which was responsible
for bringing such name acts as Styx, Arlo Guthrie,
Chuck Mangione, Firefall, Brother's Johnson
Mother's Finest, and Pablo Cruise.
"I do have an interest in the Student Union
because I have been involved in it for two years I
guess that explains why I was interested in the
office of president said Sune. "I think I've done
alot in the area of concerts and I hope I can do
alot in the area of president

able to pull together the

Industrial-technology builds pirate ship on wheels

Staff Writer
Many of you saw it
win first place in the
1978 Homecoming Par-
ade, or have caught a
glimpse of it in several
other parades. If you're
not a parade goer
you've probably seen it
docked in front of Flan-
agan with its Pirate flag �
flapping in the breeze.
All you probably
know about it is that it
was built by the In-
dustrial-Technology De-
partment at ECU, but,
has it ever crossed your
mind as to why it was
built or how the de-
partment managed to
build it?
According to Paul E.
Waldrop, advisor of the
INDT Club, the moti-
vation behind building
the Pirate Ship came
about through a brain
storm session with the
INDT Club. "We were
looking for some way
for the department to
be recognized. We
wanted to build some-
thing that would remind
people that ECU is a
university that has an
Industrial � Technology
Department Waldrop
The Pirate Ship was
decided upon because,
as Waldrop puts it,
"The mascot of ECU is
the Pirate, so what
better way to attract
attention to the Uni-
versity (and the depart-
ment) than to have an
authentic replica of a
Pirate Ship?"
The whole under-
taking began with a
sketch of what the ship
would look like in its
final stage. Drawings
from several books were
used as models in these
sketchings. From these
drawings, a set of de-
tailed plans were drawn
and then the amount of
material needed for the
i project was determined.
"At this point the
whole project almost
folded. We had no way
of financing it because
the club had little
money to spend. So we
had to come up with
donations reflected
It was an uphill
battle at first, but the
group finally found sup-
port for the boat. "I
went to see David
Evans of Garris-Evans
Lumber Co. of Green-
ville, explained the sit-
uation, and within a
couple of days we
received two truckloads
of lumber from the
company stated Wal-
With this donation,
the INDT Club saw the
opportunity to get the
job done. So, on Oct.
15, construction of the
future Pirate Ship be-
An old chassis, do-
nated by Smith-Waldrop
Motors and the Ford
Company, was used as
the base of the boat so
it could be transported
with ease in the parade.
After Waldrop and
Bruce Sherman, a club
member, laid out and
fastened the frame ol
the ship on the chassis.
INDT Club members
began donating their
free time every evening
towards completion of
the ship.
"We averaged about
six persons a night for
five hours, and worked
on 30 consecutive
nights. So that averages
180 total workmen and
900 hours total work
time that we put into
the building of the
Pirate Ship recalled
Construction of the
ship was completed
three days before the
parade. Then the club
began rigging the
masts. "We used old
poles for masts, devised
sockets to put in the
mast steps, and roped
them together with
cordage donated by
Walter Perkins of the
Atlantic Rope Com-
pany said Waldrop,
"We had most of the
rigging completed be-
fore the parade but we
had to roll the ship
outside to do the final
The ship was finally
completed at 11:30 a.m.
(the morning of the
parade) when the fuel
pump broke. The
parade was at noon an
something had to be
done fast. Someone rig-
ged a temporary syphon
assembly, which sy-
phoned the fuel into the
carborator. This make-
shift product was rigged
in 15 minutes.
The Pirate Ship and
its crew made it to the
parade and were re-
warded for the efforts
by winning first place
in the float competition.
Sine ECU's Home-
coming Parade, the Pir-
ate Ship has appeared
in Snow Hill, Roan ok e
Rapids, and Greenville
for their holiday par-
ades, and have received
a number of invitations,
one being a date on
July 4 in Belhaven.
The future of the
Pirate Ship look- bricht.
The INDT Club already
has had an offer lnm
Litterfield, and In-
ternational Harvester
Dealer, to store the
boat when not in use.
They also have trans-
portation to everv event,
compliments of Hole
Construction Companv,
of which Melvin Hoke
is associated.
The Pirate Ship will
be used at all home
football games and
school gatherings. The
club will also contact
various civic organiza-
tions who may wish to
display the ship for
their events.
One addition will be
made to the Pirate
Ship � the installation
of cannons. If we can
do this, we will attempt
to encourage the band
to use the ship and its
cannons as a percussion
instrument Waldrop

Senator speaks at college
25 January 1979 FOUNTAINHEAD Pw 3
Assistant News Editor
Sen. Robert Dole was
�e guest speaker at a
banquet held at Lenoir
Community College
Saturday night.
D�le, a one time
vice-presidential nomi-
nee and Republican
senator from Kansas
stole the evening with
his wit and charm.
His remarks were
geared to the leadership
of America and the
challenge of change.
Dole's opening re-
marks were confined to
political jokes about his
own party.
"I don't belong to
any organized group.
I'm a Republican he
e have come to
accept the change bv

Dole spoke of
several local leaders and
expressed his views on
the hard work they
have accomplished.
"The enthusiasm
that you convey, the
willingness you have to
assume responsibility for
a better Kinston-those
are the greatest assets
that any community can
claim Dole said.
'In this tormented
and confused century,
when war and economic
depression has undercut
ti;e faith of millions in
the ultimate triumph of
free government, it is
America's mission to
show the way, to
demonstrate to the
doubters that democracy
still works, at home as
well as abroad he
"Like it or not, big
government is with us
Dole om-
p stay
'It is unavoidable
an age when oui
economy defies personal"
management, and when
America global com-
mitments make her the
last, best hope for
freedom on this earth
he continued.
Dole commented that
there is no excuse for a
government that takes
your tax dollars and
wastes them in counter-
productive spending.
"There is no logic to
a government that
proclaims itself the
friend of free enter-
prise, but insists on
regulating the economy
to the detriment of
production and jobs
he said.
Dole emphasized the
need for leadership.
"Leadership takes
hold of government,
instead of allowing gov-
ernment to take hold of
us he said.
"Government has an
obligation to reach out
to the chronically poor,
the handicapped, those
left out of the free
enterprise system or
taken for granted by
the Majority Party

Located on the ECU
campus in the Wright
Annex on the third floor
is a valuable and much
needed student service
-The Counseling Center.
Counseling usually
means talking with
someone about problems
or feelings that are
bothering you.
A counselor may be
a roommate, best friend,
mother. father, aunt,
uncle, cousin or.atbest
maybe Grandma.
But, sometimes shar-
ing a problem with a
supportive person just
isn't enough.
The ECU counselors
are highly trained and
caring people.
This caring takes the
form of immediate and
active help for whatever

PflQ� 4 FOUNTAINHEAD 25 January 1979
Oh, dem blue law blues
On March 10, 1966, the concept of
a separate church and state suffered a
setback when the Greenville City
Council enacted a "blue" law
outlawing the sale of almost every-
thing except food, medicine, and gas
on Sunday. There is absolutely no
justification for a law of this sort.
What right does any government have
to say what can be sold when
(alcoholic beverages excepted)?
Granted, many people sincerely
believe that Sunday should be a day
of rest and that it is sinful to work
on the Sabbath, but such beliefs have
no place in a legal argument. The
blue law serves only to inconvenience
consumers and subject merchants to
the constant threat of fines for selling
Sunday contraband. The irony of it
all is that you can buy all the beer
and wine you like, but you can't buy
a pot to fx lunch in.
To further complicate the problem,
the ordinance is extremely vague as
to what can and cannot be sold. For
example, one local storekeeper,
charged with illegally selling a box of
tacks on Sunday asked the judge to
list what could and could not be sold.
The judge replied that he didn't
know exactly what couldn't be sold,
but he knew you couldn't sell tacks.
The storekeeper and the cashier who
made the sale were fined $50 each.
The law has been amended three
times to allow more items to be sold,
but there are still gross inconsisten-
cies. For instance, you can't buy
men's or boy's socks, but you can
buy women's panty hose.
What does the city have against
its merchants and consumers that it
would inflict such ridiculous restric-
tions on trade? Are odd-numbered
Tuesdays to be next? If we didn't
know better, we'd think we were in
the kingdom of Freedonia, right out
of Duck Soup.
SGA President Tommy Joe Payne
represents the students on the
City Council, and he should work to
repeal this stupid law.

Uppity Women
Senior summaries prove useless
detector helps clear air
Staff Writer
You may recall from last week's article that, in
honor of the New Year, certain "blessings" were
recounted, which were then observed to retain "the
definite odor of ancient salmon fried in lard and
served with caviar
This description was an attempt to show that (1)
the practices described had strong roots in the past;
(2) these practices were steeped in greed
(pigginess); and (3) someone was definitely
benefiting from them.
In summary, the "blessings" in question are
those: women are now "allowed" to own property,
vote, to obtain bank loans on their own
credibility, to retain their earnings, to obtain a
divorce, to obtain a college education equal to a
man's, to earn wages equal to a man's, to spend
more time outside of the home, to not be subject to
corporal punishment at their husbands' discretion.
Those who did not detect fish odors from the
reading were requested to re-read the
statements, and after each one, to ask the
question "why? The answer to all of them, with
the exception of one, is this: women are allowed
these "privileges" because of legal provision. In
case there are some of you who didn't know
women haven't always been allowed as much
freedom as they have these days.
The constitution on which our nation is based
states that "all men are created equal and have
inalienable rights to "life, liberty, and the pursuit
ol happiness. ' Therefore, men's rights are provided
for in the basic constitution.
The basic constitution (and the men's rights
contained within it) are not subject to repeal.
There will doubtless be some who will argue
with this viewpoint, but if a constitutional
amendment is required to make something law, this
hardly leaves any question as to whether it was
legal before the amendment was passed.
If that doesn't make you nervous, then you are
obviously not a woman. For my part, it scares the
hell out of me.
There is a nifty little device called a "fish
detector which has been a lot of help to me, as
ff� s�keeP'ng my breathing air relatively free from
fishy" smell. What it does is to inform me that a
statement or concept is "fishy and that I should
move away from it, or move it out of my space.
It functions like a simple analytical computer.
The only hassle involved with it is that you have to
run information through it using your own brain
power. (That shouldn't be too hard for college
When information is fed in, the fish detector
puts it through the following analysis: (1) What is
the basic concept of the statement or question? (2)
Is it rooted in a basic male concept, or a basic
female concept? (3) Is it based on a concept of
sexual equality? (4) Is it applicable to the realities
of 1979, or is it a carry-over from the distant
past(or maybe not-so-distant )
For a demonstration of the fish detector, let's
feed in one of the "blessings" that is not covered
by legal provision: It has become acceptable in
recent years for a woman to spend more time
outside of the home. The fish detector read-out
states: "The basic concept of this statement is,
that it has been unacceptable for a woman to spend
her time in whatever pursuit she chooses; or, more
specifically, it has been unacceptable for a woman
to venture out of the bounds which have been set
for her by male standards
Therefore, the basic concept is not one of sexual
equality. Considering the financial realities of 1979
that make it imperative for a large segment of the
female population to work outside of the home, any
question of whether it is acceptable is definitely a
carry-over from they past. When considered from a
human-rights standpoint, it is anitquated.
Let's feed the fish detector another statement:
It is still a woman's responsibility to take care of
home and children, even if she is employed outside
of the home.
Fish detector response: "The basic concept of
this statement is that of a 'woman's place so to
speak, which must be maintained, regardless of the
amount of energy which has to be expended in
other areas. It is not based on a concept of sexual
equality, because there is no provision for the
sharing of home and child-raising responsibilities on
the man's part even though there is sharing of
responsibility for bringing in income on the woman's
It would seem logical, therefore, to conclude that
the basic concept would be a male concept, since it
is advantageous to the male. There is little question
as to whether it is applicable to present-day reality,
or whether there is any concept of human rights
Please allow me to present you with your very
own fish detector. If you want it, then you got it. It
doesn't take up any space (except in your head,)
and is guaranteed to work for as long as you want
to use it. It's really much healthier for you to
breathe clean air, you know.
Since I'm such a nostalgia freak, the next article
will deal with the "good old days" (as far as
women are concerned,) and a brief overview of how
we got here from there. The cigarette-ad men say
we've come a long way. I wonder.

French scholar, Gaetan
Picon's, newly published
survey, Surrealists and
Surrealism (Skira, Riz-
zoli) deals with that
movement as the liter-
ary and artistic phen-
omenon it was. TnT
book is sumptuously il-
lustrated and includes
many rarely published
pieces by Duchamp,
Man Ray, Ernst, Dali
and Magritte among
other painters, as well
as poems by the initial
high priest of the
movement, Andre Bre-
ton, in addition to
poems by Paul Eluard,
Apolinaire et al.
Picon divides the
movement into six sec-
tions. In the first, "The
Discovery" Picon quotes
Breton as saying, "In
1919 my attention was
fixed on the more or
less fragmentary
phrases which, when
one is alone and about
to fall asleep, begin to
run through the mind,
though it is impossible
to say what shaped or
framed them These
lines later were in-
corporated into the Sur-
realist Manifesto pub-
lished in 1924, when
most scholars consider
the movement to have
formally begun.
At the same time
the French poet, Bre-
ton, began to feel that
there was artistic merit
in the "fragmentary
phrases" which come to
mind when one is in
the stage of half-sleep,
a German painter, Max
Ernst, was noticing the
same thing.
"One rainy day in
1919, happening to be
in town on the banks of
the Rhine, I was struck
by the way my excited
gaze became obsessed
with the pages of an il-
lustrated catalogue

signed for anthropolo-

chological, mineralogical

The poet, Lousi Ar-
agon, is quoted from
his Une Vague de

midst of some very
special reflections, in the
course of resolving a
poetic problem, at the
moment it is true when
he became aware of the
moral texture of that
problem, that Andre

1919 to grasp the

But these attempts
at effacing the border-
line between dream and
reality, conscious and
unconscious were onlv
the first steps in a
movement that

Picon then begins a
discussion on the
change in artistic cli-
mate from the anti-ra-
tional, anti-traditional
Dadaism to the irra-
tional Surrealism.

Basically it is a combination of early to late 60 s

it is all three (and none of the above).

Barbra Streisand
I suppose if one can handle Steisand's

Barbra is reknowned for doing pseudo-soulful
renditions of material that was once fairly good.
Carole King's "Where You Lead" on this collection

Ms. Carter is a fox. She has also recorded two

in solidarity of performance and general pro-

sound reincarnated as a 50-ish late-night talk show
trumpeteer, this album provides an opportunity to
find out.
Scott arranged, produced, and selected the
supporting players for this Severinsen disc and
whatever identity the album has is certainly not
It is, however, very fine music. If this
album can be found at all, it may be located in the
mood section of your local record store. But, don't
be fooled. These charts cook.
There is not a bad cut on the set. Outstanding
are Scott's own "Soft Touch the Scott-Severinsen
multi-tracked collaboration "Do It To It and
"Chicken Chatter This is the best jazz album I've
heard so far this year. The only problem is that it
was recorded nearly a year and a half ago.
It still amazes me that Chuck Mangione is so
damn popular when there are guys around like
"The Doctor" or Chuck Findley who can really blow
a horn. A-plus
Ronnie Laws�Flame
If you encounter a feeling of deja vu while
listening to this album, don't be alarmed. You have
heard this material before. Ronnie Laws has been
recording the same album ever since Fever was
released three years ago.
And there is very little change foreseen in his
immediate future as an artist. Wh.tsmore, it is easy
to believe th.t he could crank out one of these
Crisco-slick performances every two months. Yet,
this is a better album than his last, Friends and
Strangers, basically because his brother Hubert
helps liven things a bit on flute.
Perhaps the biggest dissappointment about
Ronnie, though, is that he is potentially a very fine
player. He has great range. If only he would quit
trashing his way from one million-seller to the next.

Superman Reeve 'gracefully underplays his role
continued from p.5
It seems that filmmakers are still trying to find
somebody with the equivalent scoring ability of
Bernard Herrmann (Hitchcock's favorite composer)
whose music is rooted in traditional tonalities. The
best thev have come up with so far is composer
John Williams (Jaws, Close Encounters, Academy
Award for Star Wars). The transition for Superman
was no transition at all. Instead of scoring for a
flying saucer his orchestra merely accompanies a
living man. The music for Superman surges and
swells but William's courtship with the doctrinal
symphony orchestra gives us another theme that
sounds like the most hackneved of fanfares.
The screenplay for the film strays little from the
familiar comic book aga which, since its inception
fort) vcar ago, has a circulation of some thirteen
million in the United States alone and has been
translated into fifteen languages.
Superman, or Kal-El, as he was named, was
born on the planet Krypton, the son of that
society's leading scientist, Jor-El, and his wife Lara
(played in the film by Susannah York). When
Jor-El discovered that Krypton was doomed to
explode, he worked against time, building a
spaceship to save his infant son.
The opening scenes on Krypton comprise some
of the most imaginative representation in the film.
i long before some standard disaster movie
footage, which accompanies the baby's launch and
the subsequent destruction of Krypton, three
intergalactic evildoers are tried by the Kryptonian
Council of Elders and exiled into the Phantom Zone.
Thev are banished by means of a projection ray,
interpreted bv visual effects man Field as a beam
light atop which rests a mirror-like vehicle that
is to house the villians until their inevitable escape
which is to be dealt with in the sequel.
The pacing of film once the superbaby lands on
ih is -low and deliberate. Glenn Ford makes it
able with his rendition of Superman's earthly
lather. Jonathan Kent. These scenes depicting the
mg Clark Kent move methodically and are devoid
of the run-of-the-mill, dazzling special effects save
i couple: notably,Clark out-distancing an express
something his dense molecular structure
rds him the ability to do. Still, it is hard not to
squirm when you're in Smallville, Clark's hometown,

mething Sur-
realism, in its aptitude
-ingling out some-
thing to love and be-
lieve in, revered a cer-
tain number and kind of
past achievements; and
from the outset the fu-
ture Surrealists were
much more concerned
with literarv matters.
The Surrealist tech-
niques of automatic
writing and collage were
not calculated to disrupt
or challenge meaning.
They were a vehicle for
arriving at another
meaning, at a hidden
reality capable of ad-
ding a new dimension
of meaning to man's
perpetual self-quest-
ioning. Picon notes that
"Man should find here
the regenerating revela-
tion denied him in
every other direction
Surrealists and Sur-
realism is an in-depth
survey of the respected
French scholar, Gaeton
Picon, which is indis-
pensible to the special-
tist in the field as well
as a pleasureable ex-
perience for the en-
thusiast. Its copious and
telling illustrations and
text combined with the
surrealist poems pre-
sented make the book
and inestimably valuable
work of art historianism.
fine here, too.
Ned Beatty plays Otis, Luthor's bumbling
sidekick, with unrestrained dopiness. The
powerfully sexy Valerie Perrine is perfect as
Luthor's moll, Miss Teschmacher. Margot Kidder
sets women back 50 years with her portrayal of
reporter Lois Lane. Screenwriters Puzo, David and
Leslie Newman, and Robert Benton see Lois as a
modern day Lucy; a bit more involved, and single.
Honorable mention goes to veteran Jackie Cooper
for his performance as Daily Planet editor Perry
White. But just about all performances in character
roles are funny, and, what is especially gratifying,
relaxedly so.
The roles that have been causing the most
commotion are those of Superman and his
Kryptonian father Jor-El. After producers Salkind
and Salkind had approached just about every
leading man in Hollywood (Robert Red ford was their
first choice), they came to the conclusion that the
presence of an established star would only distract
the viewer from the Superman role. They set out in
search of a blank slate and wisely chose virtual
unknown Christopher Reeve.
Reeve gracefully underplays the role. He does a
neat job without turning on any excess charm.
Reeve is an imposing white whale of a man, solidly-
built with jet black hair and blue, blue eyes that
could stop a bullet in its tracks. And since this film
invites petty speculation, let me raise the question
whether any filmed eyes, however meltingly or
mysteriously black, could ever compete in close up
with the blue ones of Gabin, or O'Toole, or even a
Brando? I speak of male eyes; women's seem to
function differently on screen. To this blueness,
Geoffrey Unsworth s impeccable color photography
contributes handsomely.
The controversy surrounding prima dona Marlon
Brando's casting as Jor-El is not without warrant.
Brando gets top billing and an incredible $3.7
million, against ll.3 percent of the gross, for his
fifteen days on the set in Rome. Is he really that
important? In some ways, yes.
However blurry the Xerox copies (Stallone, et.
al.) may be getting, Brando is the original. He was
the first Method actor to become a movie star.
That tag proved a blessing as well as a curse. In a
He can still be identified instantly on the cluttered
Hollywood shelves, to be discarded by obsolescence
as soon as the fashion changed. But the Brando
magic lingers on and on. In Superman, one wonders
what his method is � or if there really is a
method at all.
Still, no other actor has ever gone in
roller-coaster fashion from such pinnacles of success
and praise to such an abyss of bitter railing; and
survived unscathed. Brando has been declared
finished with monotonous regularity. He has risen
again to prove that he is still with us, the most
resourceful, inventive, daring, annoying, contra-
dictory, and brilliant actor in America. It is awfully
hard to put a price on his divination.
What is destined to be the single most important
aspect in the super-selling of the Man of Steel will
not be the casting or performances or even the
impossible-to-ignore packaging of the film, but the
technique of spectacle: the special effects. The
thousands of takes and re-takes have honed illusion
to near perfection. Whether Superman is straight-
ening a Boeing 707, battling a natural disaster,
changing the course of human history, or just taking
Lois for a ride, the special effects people are
sustaining the illusion of flight throughout.

life, we have life turned into a spectacle, that is to
say, made visual, public, dramatic.
Unfortunately, special effects cost money, big
money. But special effects draw the biggest crowds
and while $60 million is certainly going overboard,
it is hard to imagine a film shot on a Superman
scale weighing in at any less than $15 million. 1 he
realist cinema of yesterday involves a rejection or at
best a simplification of technical possibilities
Today's endeavors are tied up with the industrial
and technological progress of the cinema.
Despite the haphazard and in many way-
unsatisfacton manner in which this technical
progress occurs, it is genuine progress, for, as it
becomes more complicated,the industry achieves one
of its ideal aims. Superman is right on target. It
has evolved into a spectacular form of high camp
entertainment that unites action and size of image,
sound and music, depth and color. It is much more
than an historical accident.

The adapted intra-

intitiated last semester
is hack in full swing.

have not been aware of
this program, it is de-

The intramural de-
partment has been
working closely with
faculty from physical
education, physical
therapy, and recreation-

specialized training in
these areas in order to
develop the program to
its full potential.
Under the direction
of Nancy Mize the
program has blossomed
since its first Intramural
Fun Night held last No-
vember 15.
Minges Coliseum has
been set aside each
Wednesday from 7:45-

as wheelchair basket-

leyball, and recreational
games. Transportation

In addition to these
nights, an effort is
being made for those
who desire to learn
swimming, weight train-
ing, etc. Several intra-
mural tournaments are
planned for the coming
semester. These include
such activities as ar-
chery, bowling, table
tennis and billiards.
