Reader's Digest plans
to condense the Bible
Assistant News Editor
Reactions from re-
ligious teachers and
other professionals are
mixed concerning the
plan of the Reader's
Digest to condense the
Bible. Those questioned
on the matter had
reservations. Others felt
that the Digest could
call the condensed ver-
sion something other
than the Bible.
Reader's Digest edi-
tors said the conden-
sation would be based
on the Revised Standard
Version of the Bible,
which is copyrighted by
the National Council of
The version contains
about 750,000 words
and the plans call for a
40 percent reduction.

Schools forced closed, ski operators jubilant
main roads in Avery a�d Watauga counties were
passable, with some snow and ice patches. But he
said secondary roads were impassable.
He said schools in Watauga and Avery counties
were forced to close again Wednesday. The schools
were open on Monday and Tuesday after being
closed 10 consecutive days because of bad weather.
Skl operators were jubilant, saying they are
expecting record crowds this weekend. Most ski
resorts are reporting four to six feet of snow on the
Asheville recorded a seven-inch snowfall, along
with some sleet and freezing rain. A spokesman for
the Asheville Police Department called driving
conditions "extremely hazardous" but said all main
roads were passable. However, the spokesman said
secondary roads in Buncombe and surrounding
counties were impassable.
The Asheville Airport remained closed until
about noon Wednesday until runways could be
cleared of snow drifts and ice.
A Charlotte woman who could not get to a
hospital because of the storm gave birth to a baby
girl in a parked car Wednesday morning. Judith
Vore received assistance from a city policeman and
a newspaper carrier in delivery of the 8Vfe-pound
baby. Mrs. Vore and her baby were reported doing
well at Charlotte Memorial Hospital.
A crowd, which some estimated as high as
3,000, gathered on the hillsides overlooking College
Hill. The crowd gathered at about 11 to stage
what might best be termed as Greenville's largest
snowball fight in history.
The crowd divided up into two parts, with each
side alternately charging and being charged.
Students took cover behind parked cars, behind the
rail fence in front of Scott Dormitory, and behind
each other.
The snow warriors took a break from bombing
each other each time a hapless motorist drove by.
Cries of "Car" went up from the crowd, and both
sides of the milling mob bombed the car. Several
motorists took offense at this action, and more than
one got out of his car to argue the matter. As soon
as this occurred, the motorist was quickly struck by
50 or more snowballs. The night got increasingly
dangerous as the street got slicker, and several
students slid up the hill by hanging onto car
Across campus, several other snowball battles
took place. Said battles were the main topics of
conversation in 8:00 and 9:00 classes the next day.
No injuries were reported, although rumor had it
that several intrepid males sneaked into the side
door of Tyler Dormitory. The young men ran down
the hall, and bombed several girls with snowballs.

Following a tradition as old as
American history, farmers from all
over the country marched on Wash-
ington this week to lobby in person
for higher price subsidies for their
crops. The supposedly "free market"
economy of the United States will
suffer another blow to its already
shaky foundation should this come
Farmers, whose crops are already
subsidized by the government through
price supports, land banks, and other
programs, are asking US citizens to
underwrite their poor business prac-
tices and, at the same time, pay the
higher prices in the marketplace that
such subsidies naturally cause.
The American farmer must learn
the same lessons that other corporate
entities have had to learn to survive.
Whether farmers are greedy, as
Agriculture Secretary Bob Bergland
suggests, or only the victims of their
own bad judgement, their failure will
result in a stronger economy, a goal
that President Carter has promised
every year.
The failure of local farmers would,
of course, depress the local economy
for a time, but that is infinitely
preferable to continuing the inflation-
ary spiral we are in now.
Eastern North Carolina has an
agriculture based economy and Green-
ville is still very much a "tobacco
town Farmers in this region would
feel heavily the loss of the existing
subsidy and would profit from the
proposed increase. However, the
consumers of farm products would
bear the brunt of the expense of the
subsidies and the inflation those
subsidies cause.
The practice of subsidizing ineffici-
ent businesses, be they agricultural or
industrial, can only lead to higher

First of all, why did

It is ridiculous to
say the guidelines and
timetables were set up
by the Media Board so
that the FOUNTAIN-

wouldn't be damaged.
That sounds as if the
HERALD staff is more
likely to break the
equipment at certain
hours than at others.
Secondly, the author
of the editorial compar-
ed the HERALD to
favorably. I have seen
high school publications
with more care put into
them than FOUNTAIN-

gutters running down

high school journalists
know is a "no-no

first to throw a stone at
Finally, FOUNTAIN-
HEAD may think it has
given ECU blacks a lot
of coverage this year
but we know you've
been slack. Even you
can't come up with
more than two or three
major black articles in a
semester's coverage.
And one of the articles
is from this semester.

a paper for blacks. You

have yet to be publish-

believe you will do
better this semester.
Instead of handing
the HERALD unneces-
sary guidelines and
schedules, why don't
you hand them the key
to the facilities? Instead
of comparing the

will see it is all

Freedom of the press is guaranteed by the First
Amendment. That akes care of that, right?
Not quite. DeSpite constitutional safeguards,
American media that take on the status quo are
forced to fight a never-ending battle with authorities
just to exist.
The first shot was fired back in 1690, when the
premiere American newspaper, Boston's Publick
Occurances , was suppressed after one issue by
colonial authorities. Government officials no longer
openly declare newspapers illegal. Modern repres-
sion takes more covert and varied forms.
According to documents obtained separately
under the Freedom of Information Act by this writer
and Alternative Media magazine, federal agents
infiltrated underground (later alternative) newspaper
staffs, concocted material falsely attributed to
dissident journalists, wiretapped reporters and
investigated their editors' finances, even sponsored
physical attacks on uppity underground writers.
The documents are heavily censored, with
especially sensitive sections blacked out, but their
meaning is clear: American authorities acted in
blatant disregard for the First Amendment rights of
dissident journalist in the 1960s and early 1970s.
Most of the covert actions were carried out under
the FBI's Counter Intelligence Program (COIN-
TELPRO), supposedly discontinued in 1971.
According to government documents, the FBI's
San Francisco bureau paid $380 to a staffer at the

When the early settlers came over to subdue the
wild new continent, they brought with them dreams
of a better way, with better opportunities and
freedom from tyranny.
However, the status of women was a concept so
deeply engrained in them, that no thought of the
improvement of woman's lot was considered,
freedom for women came only through the demands
of a new environment, and, later on, through
economic necessity in a more industrialised society.
Women were much in demand in the early
settlements of America, because there never seemed
to be enough of them. While the early male settlers
were exhorted by the church not to intermarry with
the heathen natives (Indians), they apparently did
not practice the same restraint when it came to
sleeping with them.
Colonial records are full of such alliances. It ia
doubtful whether many of the white men would
have married the native women anyway, since the
women were not qualified by background to assume
the household tasks which the European-oriented
men of the time assumed that a wife would do.
Strict sexual codes were legislated for women in
the colonies. In one colony if a female servant was
made pregnant by her employer, she wu, after her
term of service, turned) over to church wardens who
were authorized to add two more years to her term
of servitude and to sell her labor to some other
man. The money from the woman's earnings went
to the parish.
In another colony, a woman who gave birth to
an illegitimate child was to be arrested and whipped
on her bare back until blood came. She was also
required to either pay her master 2,000 pounds of
tobacco or remain with him for two additional years
If the illegitimate child had a Negro father the
mother, in addition to fining or whipping, was given
five additional years rf service. One third of the
proceeds of the sale jof her services went to the
informer, one third to j the public treasury and the

The Doobies 'maturely
adapt' to the late T70's
Staff M riter
Nearly three years
ago the Doobie Brothers
put out their sixth
album entitled Takin It
To The Streets. How-
over, tor some reason,
at the time, the album
didn't actually sound
the way the Doobie
Brothers were supposed
The raw vocals, driv-
ing guitar and rockin'
songwriting of Tom

for so long had been
the mainstay and con-
iling force of the
up. seemed to be
missing. Instead the
sound on Takin it To
The Streets was filled
with lots of keyboards,
a slickly produced jazz-
rock sound, and some
gu with a real husk
To those who had
'n tan of the Doo-
es prior to this time,
album was some-
thing of a disappointing
surprise. However, per
haps more importantly,
the album was the
subject of praise from
people who had pre-
viously not really cared
for the group. In es-
sence, the change was
centered around the
addition of two very
influential members,
namely Michael
McDonald and Jeff Bax-
In 1974, both
McDonald and Baxter
were members of Steely
Dan, and toured with
the band in that same
year (the only year
Steely Dan ever did live
concerts). During this
time Walter Becker and
Donald Fagen, the only
true members of Steely
Dan, felt they were
tired with the drudgerv
of touring. Baxter said
he wanted to tour
Becker and Fagen said.
Baxter then began
doing studio work
around L.A. and playing
part time with the
Doobies. McDonald
stayed with Steely Dan
in the studios and sang
most of the harmonies
on Katy Lied.
Consequently a year
or so later, Baxter still
wanted a group to tour
with and McDonald
wanted somewhere to
showcase his talents
other than by just
singing. The Doobie
Brothers were flounder-
ing after a weak fifth
album and a very sick
leader in Tom Johnston
(ulcers). Thus, the mer-
ger occurred.
Minute By Minute is
the third album the
group has released
since McDonald and
Baxter joined, and dur-
ing that time they have
become one of the most
musically respected
bands around.
Michael McDonald
has proven himself un-
doubted) to be one of
the finest yet most
overlooked singer-song-
writers in music today
with songs like "You
Belong To Me "Takin
It To The Streets" and
"It Keeps You Run-
nin to his credit. His
uniquely textured voice,
while taking a while to
get used to, seems to
be limitless in its range
and effectiveness.
In Minute By Minute
the style that began in
Takin It To The Streets
is advanced and polish-
ed. McDonald has be-
come the controlling
force of the group with
the rest of the band
providing the perfect
The music oh the
album is a finely pro-
duced mixture of 10
songs which vary a
great deal in tempo and
style. The songs written
by McDonald are the
most interesting, while
the songs by other
members edge towards
flashbacks of the Doobie
Brothers of old. It is a
highlv sophisticated
sound that works, and
leaves the Doobie Bro-
thers as one of the few-
groups in the jazz-rock
idiom who can stay in
the same ballpark with
Steely Dan.
The best cut on the
Minute" is the third album the group has released
since McDonald and Baxter joined, and during that
time they have become one of the most musically
respected bands around.

tightness and talent.
A lot of credit needs
to go to this group
because they are a
band split by factions of
old and new, both
internally and extern-
ally. However, while the
differences of musical
opinion are evident, the
band has not let it
affect the qua of
their music. The Doo-
bies have adapted
maturely and relied on
their strengths.

The Lives of a Cell: yotes of a Biology
Hatcher, bv Lewis Thomas, is a collection of the
o-philosophical musings of a medical researchist.
Those of you who are about to turn to
�mething other than this review to read�wait!
Though the essays contained in The Lives of a
7 were originally published in the New England
urnal of Medicine (1971, 1972, 1973), they are
thing but the dry, research-type material usually
-ociated with such publications.
Each selection is alive, vibrant with the
excitement of an impending scientific breakthrough.
-av tingles with optimistic fascination at the
omplex biological and social universe the human
race occupies.
This seeming irony between subject matter and
the style in which it is presented is reflected even
. the book's cover.
The author, Lewis Thomas, is a medical doctor
-t considerable reputation. He is the current
president of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer
Center in New York, and has served in numerous
equally prestigious positions at other well known
research facilities. Yet, the cover reads simply, "by
Lewis Thomas
Whv would anyone who has earned the title
"Doctor" prefer to have his book's author not
associated with such an honor? I can think of no
reason other than he is trying to say, "This is a
few of one human being's awed reflections upon the
human condition. I have not invented these facts. I
am simply one of many fascinated by them. These
marvels are us. They belong to us all
Thomas begins his reflections by making a case
for "our nonexistence as entities According to
Thomas, it seems that our cell's mitochondria have
their own genetic complex, a DNA scheme separate
and different from the other cellular organelles.
They also replicate differently. They are separate
organisms within our cells.
This means that each of us is not a single
individual. We are each a collection of organisms
living in symbiosis.
We are, more than many of us are willing to
admit, not organisms especially different from the
others inhabiting this planet. Plants' chloroplasts
have their own genomes (sections of DNA). Plants,
too, are assemblages.
Like humans, the tiny Myxotricha Paradoxa, a
bacteria dwelling in the digestive tract of the
termite, and without which the termite would not be
able to digest wood, is a multi-organism.
The cilia which cover it and provide locomation
were once thought to be simple filimentous
appendages. Electron-microscopy has shown these
cilia to be spirochetes, bacteria entirely different
from M. Paradoxa while living in symbiosis with it.
Thomas leaves the overall significance of such
information to the discretion of reader, but suggests
that it should make us feel more a part of the
Earth commuinity. It should make us feel less like
special Lords-of-the-Earth and more like brethren
among the less-evolved creatures of our planet.
'Cats with the bugs'
The increasing rapidity with which science reveals
such facts brings to mind a line from Arlo Guthrie's
"Presidential Rag regarding former President
Nixon; "You said you didn't know that the cats
with the bugs were there, and that you wouldn't go
along with that kind of stuff nowhere. Well, that
just isn't the point man, that's the wrong way to
go. If you didn't know about that one, then what
else don't you know?"

What he does suggest we understand
ourselves is that though, "we are, in fact

understand our place in nature.

fields of study, including linguistics, sn gy,

including its last three games. The Pirates edged
Georgia Tech 66-64 and bounced right back to stop
William and Mary, 61-59 in two overtimes. Old
Dominion also went two overtimes against ECU
before finally winning 90-85. The Pirates have now
plaved in four overtime games this season. Virginia
Commonwealth squeaked past ECU 85-83 earlier this
season in Minges.
THE OLD DOMINION women's team will be in
Minges Coliseum Feb. 12 for a game against the

ECU's new leader on the floor
Assistant Sports Editor
When a shot has to be taken at the buzzer with
a basketball game on the line, all coaches want a
true "leader" to take the big shot.
When George Maynor transfered to ECU this
year from Louisburg Junior College, his goal was to
become Pirate team leader.
In the Pirates' two biggest road wins of the
year, over Iona and Georgia Tech, both games came
down to a last second shot. George Maynor took
the last shot in both of those gamesand didn't
miss either time.
Thus, Maynor's goal of being a "leader" has
been achieved. When the time comes for a clutch
shot, Maynor and Pirate all-America candidate
Oliver Mack are the two players that Pirate coach
Larry Gillman instructs his team to look for.
Maynor has been called by UNC-Wilmington
coach Mel Gibson as "the man that makes ECU
"He sets their tempo, and keeps everyone
calm said Gibson after his team had succumbed
to Maynor and the Pirates earlier this season.
Maynor, a 6'3" junior from Raeford, has been
the Pirates starting point guard since the beginning
of the season. There fore, he has the responsibility
of being the team "quarterback
This role is a new one for Maynor, who played
the role of the "scoring guard" or the "second
guard" both in high school and junior college.
"In high school and at Louisburg said Maynor,
"I was called upon to shoot more than I do now.
It's been quite an adjustment
Maynor noted that when practice began this
season, he realized he would be looked upon to
play the point guard position. "It was then that I
realized that I needed to work on the finer points of
my game, like defense and ball-handling said
The work that was put into refining his
ball-handling skills has certainly paid off for both
Maynor and the Pirates. The ECU delay game
revolves around the dribbling tactics of Maynor and
his backcourt mate Mack.
Gillman feels the duo of Maynor and Mack is
among the best anywhere. "They play very well
together said Gillman after a recent Pirate victory.
"It's hard to find a better twosome than Maynor
and Mack
Maynor's presence on the present ECU squad is
evident just by looking at Mack's scoring average.
Last season Mack averaged 28.0 points per game.
That average has dropped to 18.2 this season
mainly due to the fact that Maynor takes so much
pressure off the Mack.
Mack has been able to concentrate more fully on
passing the ball when he does not have an open
shot this season. Last year Mack was forced to put
up shots that he felt uncomfortable about simply
because he was THE man his teammates looked to.
Now that Maynor is on the sxene, Mack must
no longer worry about shooting so often.
"I'd like to think I've taken some pressure off of
him sayd Maynor, sho is the Pirate's second
leading scorer this year with a 12.3 average.
He leads the Pirates in assists with an average
of four per contest.
Though Mack has received much publicity and
praise from the media and pro scouts, Maynor has
not exactly been in Mack's shadows. Opposing
coaches constantly comment on Maynor's value to
the Pirates. One local writer called Maynor "a real
'find' for East Carolina This writer went on to
call Maynor the key man in the Pirate attack.
Such comments come as icing on the cake for
the 6'3" junior. "Things like that make me feel
good sayd Maynor. "It makes me feel like ECU
really needs me. But the real thrill is just being
here and playing the schedule we're playing this
With games against teams such as Georgia
Tech, Iona, South Carolina, Notre Dame, Indiana
State, and N.C. State on the present Pirate
schedule, Larry Gillman's young club has certainly
had its tense moments.
Once again enter George Maynor. Maynor is
generally a very loose person. Therefore, before a
game he attempts to keep his teammates and
himself as calm as possible.
"I try to keep everyone feeling loose said
Maynor. "A little joking and inspiration, before a
i game always seems to help
Though Maynor is a big help in many ways to
the Pirates, last season at about this time he felt
somewhat helpless.
At this time last season Maynor was sitting the
season out at Louisburg. Such was required by the
NCAA as he planned to transfer from the junior
college level to major college basketball at ECU.
"That was a verv hard time for me said
Maynor. "It was tough when you would watch
someone make mistakes, and know that there was
nothing I could do to help
But now that he is back into basketball, Maynor
is giving it all he has. He is looking forward to a
possible pro career. There have been rumors that
he will be drafted in the upcoming NBA draft. He
is eligible due to the year he sat out while at
Louisburg last year.
Yet Maynor says he has no intentions of passing
up his senior year at ECU. "I would like to finish
out by college career here and graduate said
Maynor. "After my senior year I'd certainly like to
play pro basketball

Hicks eyeing pro football career
Sports Editor
Subjects like the N.C. State-North Carolina
rivalries, next year's recruiting class, and a few new
twists in the Pirate's wishbone scheme were just a
few of the topics Eddie Hicks has discussed with
his teammates during the off-season over the last
four years.
But since the speedy Pirate halfback hung up his
cleats for good after the Bucs Independence Bowl
game in December, his topics of conversation during
the winter months have changed drastically around
Scales Fieldhouse.
The pro draft, agents, contracts-those are the
top priority items with Hicks these days. For the
last three months, he has spent most of his time
talking with pro-football scouts and prospective
agents on the telephone.
Even late Tuesday afternoon, the likeable
Henderson native politely paused for a moment to
chat.before returning more phone calls.
"I've had lots of agents call me, but then
anyone who is a potential pro football player gets
his share of calls Hicks said from an assistant's
office in Scales Fieldhouse. "Maybe that's a good
sign they may draft me. But then again it's hard to
tell. I really won't know who will draft me until
draft time
Although Hicks doesn't consider himself in the
same category with such highly publicized stars as
N.C. State's Ted Brown or Penn State's Chuck
Fuzina, he still remains cautiously optimistic about
his professional changes next season. A hefty bonus
check for signing with a team would certainly be
nice, but even Hicks admits he simply wants a
chance to stick with a team.
"All of the pro scouts that I've talked to during
the last few months have told me that I have the
ability to make it somewhere Hicks said. "When
they're looking for a running back, they want
someone who can run and block well and be a good
pass receiver. It's a combination of all three that
makes the complete running back.
"Very few first year running backs that make a
team start or see a lot of playing time he
continued. "There's just so much to learn. I think I
would be content to make the squad and see some
playing time on a specialty team. Returning kickoffs
has always been exciting to me. I did it for two
years here, but injuries kept me from returning
kicks after that
The Seattle Seahawks, the Baltimore Colts, and
the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the three clubs on
Hicks top priority list. He has filled out applications
for every NFC and AFC organization except the
world champion Pittsburgh Steelers.
"The team that will draft me will just depend
on who exactly needs running backs Hicks noted.
"I really couldn't predict right now when I will h
drafted, but I think it will at least be in the first -i
Wherever Hicks goes, he will certainly bring an
! impressive list of collegiate credentials with him.
The Henderson High prep star broke into the
limelight against North Carolina his freshman year
when he scampered right up the middle for 53
yards and a touchdown in the Pirate's 38-17 victory.
He went on to rush for 897 yards and eight
touchdowns during his sophomore season and
finished his career at ECU as the school's fifth
all-time running back with 2,101 yards.
Despite missing two games last season, Hicks
still managed to rush for 515 yards and score seven
touchdowns. He also grabbed five passes for 38
yards and a touchdown.
Hicks was invited to participate in the Can-Am
All-Star game over the Christmas holidays and
finished the game as the second leading rusher in
the Americans 35-17 victory over the Canadians.
But like many of the other top college players
this year, Hicks knows impressive stats and fancy
newspaper clippings will not earn him a spot on a
pro roster.
"I guess a lot of it depends on how bad I want
to play Hicks explained. "I can just go
somewhere and be content with sitting on the bench
or I can go out there arj work hard and play.

Buc's Revils pursues title hopes

Prep classic in N.C?
(AP)-Two North Carolina
high school basketball
stars must decide whe-
ther playing in a na-
tional all-star game is
worth losing their eligi-
bility for other high
school games.
James Worthy of
Gastonia Ashebrook and
Dominique Wilkins of
Washington have been
invited to an all-star
game scheduled for
Charlotte on March 23.
Rut the game appar-
ently won't be sanc-
tioned by the N.C. High
School Athletic Associa-
tion. The lack of a
sanction, which stems
from the association's
policies, means any
North Carolina players
who take part in the
game are automatically
ineligible in that sport
for the remainder of
their high school career.
Worthy and Wilkins,
both seniors, could not
play in other high
school all-star contests.
Neither player had
notified officials of the
all-star game Wednes-
day whether they plan-
ned to play.
The all-star game
will bring together
about 25 top high
school senior- from
across the countr in an
east vs. west contest.
