Greenville radio station
WOOW (13 on the AM

"the WOOW transit

the bus that does not
show has been a legit-

time said Sherrod.
"With this radio report
at the bottom of the
hour, transit riders will
be assured that their
bus will or will not
fulfill its mission on
their respective routes
"Mr. Jacobson and I
have made it possible
for riders to be in-

may act accordingly

Joe Bullard, SGA's
Transit Manager, has
instructed his drivers to

trouble reports there
will be no confusion as

In Tuesday's meeting
of the Media Board,
the Rebel and the
alterations to the Photo
Lab were the chief
topics of discussion.
Renovations to the
Photo Lab was a topic
which has come up
before. The staff of the
Photo Lab feels it is
necessary to remodel
the Lab, and it is
generally agreed that
the changes are neces-
sary. �
Originally the Lab
was designed for the
use of only one person,
and was separated into
"cubbyholes according
to Pete Podeszwa, head
photographer of the
Photo Lab.
The Lab staff had
wished to get a decision
on the matter before
school closes, because
any alterations will have
to be done during the

Council banquet outgoing MRC '
President Gerry Wallace8 officially
announced the creation of the James
B. Mallory Scholarship.
'��� ag0 we decided to start
an MRC funded scholarship said
Wallace. It came to mind that we
needed a name for the scholarship,
and I knew from day one what we
wanted to name it
Wallace said that he felt Associate
Dean of Student Affairs Mallory has
been a phenominal success at
everything he has touched.
The $250 scholarship will be
awarded each Spring to a male dorm
student who has excelled academi-
cally and in extracurriculars as well.
Mallory, deeply touched by the
honor, addressed the MRC to express
his thanks.
"I appreciate it from the bottom
of my hear said Mallory.
Mallory offered praise to the MRC
and cited the contributions that the
MRC has made to the University.
"The administration appreciates
the concern for the students that the
MRC has shown said Mallory.
Mallory said that the MRC
"truly" represents the men on the
Wallace commented that he felt
the MRC has had a very
successful year in establishing
new committees and programs.
Wallace cited the crackdown on
vandalism, establishment of a food
service committee, a grounds
committee, and study halls as the
major accomplishments of the MRC
this year.
MRC Fund Raiser
Recently Scott, Belk, Fletcher, and
Greene dorms sponsored a social to
raise money for the Heart Fund. This
was reportedly the first "four-dorm"
social ECU has ever had as a fund
According to Gr.dy Dickerson,
MKL vice-president, over 90 was
raised and donated to the Heart
"To my knowledge no other
dorms have ever done a fund raiser
in the form of a social said
Dickerson said that the MRC
decided to charge 25 cents admission
to the. soical and donate the proceeds
to the Heart Fund.
"We consulted with Alison Bartell
president of Fletcher dorm, and
Linda Creech, vice-president of
Greene dorm, and they agreed that it
was a worthw.le project so we did
it said Dickerson.
Dickerson said that he hopes this
will serve as an example for other
dorms to follow.
David Murray, former MRC seer-
etary, said that nearly 400 students
attended the social.
"We were very pleased with the
tremendous support that we got in
this undertaking said Murray.
Murray said that this was the
largest turnout ever for a social that
made it a prime opportunity to tie in
a fund raiser.
"We offered door prises, beer
and live entertainment; as a result
we bad an overwhelming turnout

Pave the 'flats first
on this
is exactly
spend the
The ECU Board of Trustees voted
last Saturday to raise parking fees by
an astounding 150 percent, and they
also raised dorm rentals by almost
$50.00 per year. These decisions tend
to fly in the face of the Carter
Administrations's plan of austerity in
this time of inflation. There is quite a
difference in a seven percent ceiling
on wages and prices, and a 150
percent increase in the cost of
operating an automobile
campus next fall.
Even more interesting
how the trustees intend to
money. 650 spaces around Minges
Coliseum will be paved, an expensive
study to analyze the parking needs of
East Carolina will be undertaken, and
finally, almost $9,000 will be spent on
"other parking needs
We feel that is ill-advised to spend
an estimated $300,000 on a parking
lot at Minges, before the verdict is in
on the proposed study of parking
conditions. A sense of priorities
should come into effect, and it should
be decided whether it would be more
advisable to pave the freshman
parking lots and the dirt lots around
Mendenhall before parking spaces are
constructed at Minges Coliseum.
Minges will only be in use one or
two days a week at the most. the
freshman lots are filled every day.
Also, the question of parking fees

we need to do is to build a hugh lot

A priority needs to be set in this

be replaced.Nightly short outs occur in
the men's dorms on College Hill, but
after there is an electrical fire due to

The only expenditure in the long

After absolutely no debate, the
Trustees decided to reduce the cost of

this I would like to
make two facts perfectly
First, I would rather
win by a run-off than
by disqualification of my
opponent. But I would
also like for all
candidates to follow the
rules as set down by
the Legislature so that
no disqualification would
have to take place.
Second, although Miss
Joan O'Donnell is a
roommate of mine, she
was NOT on my list of
workers. In no way did
she help in my
campaign. She was
listed on Mr. Melvin's
list of workers.
As I said before, I
do not feel it is
appropriate at this time
to go into any furth er
details while an appeal
is pending. But I did
feel the need to make
these two facts perfectly
clear due to the obvious
student concern.
Again, I ask all
students to continue
having faith in student
government. The elec-
tion results will be final
soon and SGA can once
more move into positive
actions for the students.
I am continuing to have
faith in the students of
this campus and God.
After all, if God can

surely he can help East

Uppity Women
(Writer's note: Having
been active in the
women's movement for
equality for the last five
years, I have investigat-
ed many facets of
discrimination and un-
fair treatment regarding
women. However, I
cannot recall being
more shocked or sicken-
ed by any form of
unfair treatment of
women, than is reported
in the following.)
For as much diversity
in life-style and attitude
as have been evidenced
in members of the
lower-middle-and upper-
income classes, there is
a common element they
all share - approxim-
ately fifty percent of
intimate couples (maried
or unmarried), from all
income levels, engage
in some form of physi-
cal violence, i.e beat-
ing, torturing. It is
usually the women who
are the victims.
The fact that there
are more official records
of battered women from
low income levels, can
be atributed to the
reluctance of women in
higher income brackets,
to bring the police into
a doemstic matter. As
long as they can afford
a doctor, a psychiatrist,
a bus or plane ticket,
or a divorce lawyer,
these women usually
prefer not to report
their abuse to the
This information may
be shocking to many
readers, because the
problem of battered
women is not often
discussed, and appears
to be largely disregard-
ed by our society.
It was only 100
years ago, that wife-
beating was declared
illegal in this country,
in a land-mark decision
by an Alabama court.
Other states began to
hand down similar
rulings. However, until
1962, it was not
possible for a women to
bring a suit against her
husband for beating
her. The reason given
for denying women the
right to sue was that,
allegedly, the suit would
destroy the peace of the
home, and according to
a 1910 Supreme Court
ruling, "Would open
the doors of the courts

The band as well as Delbert seemed to be totally
into the music they were playing, and their tants
seemed to prove that rhythm and blues is their

In speaking with Delbert before the concert I
learned some interesting things about a verv unique
person. Delbert ha- been in the music business for
over twenty years, but his lack of widespread
success ha- not really dampened his high spirits.
Sure, I'm gettin' older, and I'd like to make some

to do what I like best for a long time. As long as a

many people in the U.S. are capable of
understanding this film. The average filmgoer
bably is not capable of deriving anything from
Circle ol Iron
But, it is a well-written, subtle, fantastically
imaginative script, nonetheless.
And, for that reason, Bruce Lee must be both
applauded and condemned for his courage. The
outstanding weakness of the script is also its most
powerful asset. Just as The Blind Teacher in the
film plav- a flute that only Cord, the Seeker can
hear. Lee purposely wrote the screen-play so that
only a few who see the film will understand it.
Iron's plot concerns a young martial artist
named Cord (a role originally intended for James
Coburn, now played by Jeff Cooper), who is off on
a quest to attain The Book of Knowledge that
contains all the wisdom of the world" kept by the
mysterious Zehtan.
Some of the resulting babble about enlighten-
ment chastity, courage, honor, etc may sound
foolish if one takes it seriously. One must realize,
therefore, that a good deal of this Zen-stuff is
written to be delivered tongue-in-cheek, that it is
self satirical and that it does not regard its own
Eastern philosophy too seriously.
But, this is terribly difficult for the general
public to understand since even the people who
bought the property after Lee's death (Sandv
Howard Productions) do not understand the
screen-play or how it should have been presented.
The script is a good one, but the film is not.
The fight scenes are awful, the score is so
pretentious at points it sounds like a rehashing of
Beethoven's "Fifth"); and the cinematography,
though beautiful, was shot on locations in Israel
that would seem more appropriate to a Cecil B
Bruce Lee is possibly the only person who could
have successfully made "Circle of Iron since it
contains his vision of martial art and philosophy of
David Carradine, subbing for Lee, plays a
quadruple role as various animal and human
characters Cord encounters on his odvssey.
Carradine is competent, even believable, in his
roles as Chang-sha. the Rhythm Man and as
Death, the Panther Man. As Chang-sha he delivers
his lines particularly wellnaturally, easily. They are
rich, lyrical, poetic lines, and it is obvious he is
having a good deal of fun with them.
After Cord greets him with a hope for peach,
Chang-sha replies,
"With the whole world in commotion, you wish
me peace. I don't know what peace is;I don't want
it. But, if you listen to the desert, even when there
is no wind, the sand sings.
"Your name is Chord? Well, play a Chord,
strike a Chord, even your name is a noise.
"What do you want, Chord? Do you want us to
play on you? My wives can make your skin sing"
(after which one of them does, a beauty namedTara,
played by Erica Creer).
Unfortunately, Carradine does not fare nearly as
well in his roles as The Blind Flautist and as The
MonkevMan. And, since he has recently admitted in
interviews that he feels possessed by Bruce Lee's
spirit, it is easy enough to understand why he
misinterpreted his roles and chose to play them
straight and stiff as the door to a tomb.
Carradine simply cannot fight, either, and this is
an ability that is crucial to all four of his roles,
particularly since his parts were intended to be the
core around which the rest of the film is built.
"Circle of Iron in general, limps from slow
pacing and a lack of tension, particularly since its
dialogue consists mostly of Lee's non-concepts. The
needed tension could, should, and would have been
created in the fight scenes had Lee lived to make
the film. David Carradine is not a suitable
substitute in a fight for the man who may have been
the best martial artist who has lived.
Jeff Cooper is a wooden "actor" and "fighter"
who always appears to be in a Quaalude -imposed
stupor. It is hard to understand how Cooper could
be chosen for a role solely on the basis of his
martial prowess when even Carradine appears to be

"I do what I do because I'm a writer, and I
want to write with as much distinction as I can
about a world that people know very little about
said noted author and Sports Illustrated reporter
George Plimpton when he spoke to a grouj
assembled at East Carolina's Hendrix Theatre
Tuesda) night.
hat Plimpton "does" is participate in a certain
activity tor a limited period of time and then write
about it. This practice is known as participatory
Plimpton's past experiences in this rare field lie
mainly in the area of sports. He has quarterbacked
the Detroit Lions and Baltimore Colts of the
National Football League, pitched in a major league

and played basketball for the 1969 world champion
Boston Celtics, to name just a few of his fantastic

Plimpton noted that the reason this experience
vnus most frightening to him is simply because
music leaves much less room for error than does a
sporting event. "An error in music destroys while
errors are supposed to happen in sports said
Plimpton said he gained inspiration to be a
participatory journalist from Paul Gallico, a writer
during the 1920's who delved into sports in much
ame way that Plimpton has. "His idea said
Plimpton, "was that you can't write truly about
sports unless you experience what it's like

Plimpton was told by the Lampoon's editor to
run in the Boston Marathon as his initiation. "I

commented Plimpton. "When he looked back and

life exemplifies what he has gone on to do in

Dye praises offense
VS EXPECTED the Purple team had little
problem moving the ball against the injurv plagued
Cold squad m last weekend's Spring 'game at
cklen Stadium. Quarterback Leander Green
directed the Purple team to an easv 30-6 victory in
front ol a sparse crowd of 1,000 fans. Green threw
one touchdown pass to his old high school
U-ammate Billy Ray Washington and completed a
38-yard pass to split end Vern Davenport which set
up another score.
Once Again. East Carolina coach Pat Dye was
pleased with the play of the offense, but continued
to moan about the play of the defense and the
mjurv situation. "Anything in the way of bright

we don't have to line up and play a football game
now. The Purple squad rushed for 334 vards and

ar alter year, the Pirates have ben
blessed with a number of talented running backs
and despite the loss ot halfback Eddie Hicks, the Bucs
still have several outstanding back. Anthonv Collins
rushed tor 90 yards and scored two touchdowns in
the Spring game while Sam Harrell added 74 on
the ground. Collins finished last season as the
team s third leading rusher with 479 yards and an
impressive 5.8 yards per carry. He also ranked 15th
nationally in kickoff returns with a 24.9 average.
Harrell. vho was used last season largely in a
reserve role, managed 245 yards for a 5.7 average
and scampered 71 yards for a touchdown against
N.C. State.
Placekieker Bill Lamm connected on a
17-yard field goal in the Spring game and has
shown amazing improvement since he came to East
Carolina as a walkon three years ago. Lamm led the
Pirah- m scoring last season with 64 points and
converted 25 of 29 extra point attempts. He also

The injun situation in the Spring has
been critical and it's something the Pirates can ill
afford early next season with three straight Atlantic
Coast Conference games in the month of September
Linebacker Mike Brewington missed Saturday's
Spring game along with defensive backs Willie
Hollev and Wayne Perry. Brewington was out with
a hip pointer while Holley suffered a broken wrist
in an intramural basketball game. Twenty players
missed the game because of injuries.

Plimpton told the assemblage of students and
professors that his profession deals with the
fantasies found in the everyday man. "Men

blow to females, but men are much more likely to

outstanding athletes, namely world heavyweight
champion Muhammed Ali. "Ali towers over all the
other professional athletes of his time -said
Plimpton. "Here's a man who cannot even read yet

probably the most well-known person in the entire

brought about by his activities with Sports
Illustrated. "The editors at Sports Illustrated liked

The author of The Paper Lion and other novels
spoke to potential writers in the group. "My advice
io the young writer he said, "is to write ail the

Plimpton commented that some of his upcoming
activities include managing the New York Yankee
for one day, possibly by the end of this season.
Pirates chase state championship

thing about it ,s having to play three of the Atfantic

aren t any easy games for us this seaosn "
But with the way Mulholland and his cohorts in
the offensive line have performed during spring
drills, not one team on the East Carolina schellf
will regard the Pirates lightly. ��ieauie
The Purple team accumulated a whopping total

guard Mitchell Johnston, who startd most of last
season "Coach Dye wants to develop a very
physical offense, one that can just line up against
another team and shove the ball right down their
throats. We want to be able to line up against
teams and run right over them
It's a technique that worked quite well for the
Pirates last year. The Bucs averaged almost 245
yard per game rushing while posting an impressive
V-6 record including avictory in the Independence
Bowl owver Louisiana Tech.
And with Mulholland and Johnston up front
along seniors Wayne Inman, Jeff Hagans and
Joe Godette, East Carolina running backs shouldn't
have too many problems finding holes.
Last season we had some problems early in the
season with our timing and it just took some time
to get things rolling Johnston said. "We were
making too many mistakes and missing assignments.
The rushing stats showed that. But after the
Carola game we just kept improving as the season
went along.
Mulholland agreed. "We were somewhat
inexperienced at the beginning of the season and
we had a lot of people hurt he said . "But �
improved more and more every game and the
results got better.
"This fall we're going to be a lot stronger and
experienced and with the schedule we have early in
the season we can't afford any injuries "
The schedule which includes Atlantic Coast
