Head photographer dismissed
News Editor
I he EC1 Media Board yesterday removed Pete
esMva from the post �t head photographer of the

eligibility lor the position, Fountainhead has
gained. 1 he toffd'S action, taken in closed session
Wednesday, ,s pending approval of the full board,
the required members from the faculty and
administration were not in attendance for the
measure to officially pass.
Eva Pittntan, chairperson of the Media Board
tcld Fountainhead that Podeszwa "is no longer the
h0�d �J thc Photo lab. He is not a full-time student
and does not have the grade point average
necessar) lor ho'ding the positionPodeszwa is not
enrolled in the current summer school session.
Minimum grade point average necessary for holding
the position is a 2.0. '
Pittman said thai there would not be a successor
Podeszwa named "until alter the end of the
second session Fountainhead has learned that

Mill assume duties of head photographer until a
successor to Podeszwa is named.
According to a reliable source close to the Media
Board, there had been allegations concerning
improper use ol vouchers and photo lab equipment.
I he removal ol Podeszwa from the position on
grounds ol academic- ineligibility effectively avoided
an investigation into these allegations. According to
I he source, although evidence was considered, "It's
impossible to keep up with paper, chemicals and
film. 1 he closed session decision to remove
Podeszwa lor academic reasons was "a nice vvav of
avoiding it" (the investigation).
Eva Pittman, when questioned about the
allegations of misuse of photo lab equipment, called
the charges "hearsay" and said "I'd rather not talk
about it

the summer, could not be reached lor comment
According to the Buildings and Grounds Department.
Podeszwa is "temporary summer help working 40
hour per week painting while still head of the
photo lab.
Fountainhead has learned that Podeszwa,
appearing before the closed session of the board
on Wednesday, requested assurance that he would
be able to return to the head photographer's job
once his academic status nad improved. The board
reported!) told Podeszwa that his application would
be considered with of other applicants.
This summer, Podeszwa has been supervising the
refurbishing of the photo lab, remodeling the
existing lab to make it more effective and practical.
In open session, the Board heard the proposed
budget for the pho? lab for the 1979-1980 year.
The budget totals 10,242.80 dollars, or an increase
of 514.80 dollars over the 1978-1979 budget of 9,728
dollars. Podeszwa noted that part of the budget
increase represented a 15 percent average price
increase from suppliers who sell material and
equipment to the photo lab.
In other matters, Charles Sune, President of the
Student Union, introduced a motion to allocate 400
dollars for a Media Board special inventory.
According to Sune, the Board needs a computer
inventory of all equipment because "we don't know
where some of this stuff is, or what shape it's in

the PhD in Counseling and Behavioral Studies from
the University of Wisconsin, has served as Assistant
Vice President for Campus Affairs and Dean of
Students, Cornell University, for the past eight
'particularly attracted' to ECU
"1 am delighted to have the opportunity to join
the forward-looking administration, faculty, staff and
students at East Carolina University Meyer said in
a telephone interview from Ithaca, N.Y.
His appointment to the newly created vice
chancellorship at ECU was approved Friday by the
UNC Board of Governors. The ECU Board of
Trustees had approved the recommendation of Dr.
Meyer during an executive session Wednesday.
Meyer said he was "particularly attracted" to
the ECU post because Chancellor Thomas B. Brewer
"is very supportive of student life programs" and
that recent administrative reorganization which
created the new vice chancellorship "is such that
student life takes on an important eductional
dimension in the total program of the universit)
"In training for citizenship there is no better
way than involving the students in all these
activities available on a college and university
campus he said.
The new vice chancellor will have administrative
responsibility over the offices of the Deans of Men
and Women, the Dean for Student Activities, the
ECU Financial Aid office, Counseling Center, Career
Planning and Placement Office, Housing, Food
Services, Security, Student Health Services and
Intramural activities.
Chancellor Brewer said, "Dr. Meyer has an
impressive record of success and achievement in
this important area of higher education. He is
imaginative and progressive and possesses great
administrative ability and leadership skills. We are
extremely fortunate to have Dr. Meyer and his fine
family join us at ECU

'Unqualified' students?
As the Raleigh News and Observer
stated Tuesday, interviews with
campus administrators have shown,
'the 10 predominantly white campuses
of the University of North Carolina
system admit a total of nearly 1,000
students each year who do not meet
minimum entrance requirements
East Carolina is one of these. The
article proceeds to explain that most,
if not all, of these universities employ
a 'special admission program"
designed to admit students "with
deficient academic backgrounds
because of their race, athletic ability,
academic potential, or other reasons
ECU annually admits about 200
students under this program.
These programs were initiated to
increase the minority enrollment in
the various schools and to admit
students from "economically or
culturally deprived backgrounds As
Virginia A. Foxx, Assistant Dean at
Appalachian State put it, "It was
started with the belief that minority
students did not do well on
standardized tests Has anyone
thought enough to hold the belief that
a significant number of white students
or just students in general do not do
well on standardized tests? What sort
of provisions are to be made for the
'unqualified' person who cannot
serve to raise the minority enrollment
of the school he seeks to enroll in '0
ECU Presently uses the Scholastic
Aptitude Test (SAT) score and the
high school grade point average as
admission requirements. I believe that
the requirements need to be
re-examined, since there has "been
some question as to whether the SAT
is actually a valid aptitude test.
According to the Wall Street
Journal (May 30, p. 16) the Federal
Trade Commission (FTC) presented a
staff report which investigated the
SAT in terms of some companies who
offer "classes" in preparation for
taking the test. Some underachievers
were found to have tiad their scores
raised by an average of 25 points (not
a significant factor). However, if the
validity of the SAT, a standard
element of criteria for college
admission on a national level, is being
questioned, perhaps other criteria
should be used.
What other criteria is there? Well,
the high school grade point average,
of course. This figure represents of all
grades received over four years,
generally which span the period of
transition from childhood into adult-
hood. Surely this type of average
cannot be an accurate measure of an
individual's ability to functon on a
college level!
The present criterion as cited thus
tar is neither valid nor consistent. If a
standard is to be set, the meaning
and application of this standard
should be re-evaluated. Why have a
'standard' (defined in Webster's, 2nd
edition, as "something established for
use as a rule or basis of comparison
in measuring or judging capacity . . .
value, quality, etc) entrance
requirement which is not nfiaintained
and respected. r p
If the present system is unclear, it
should be clarified. If it is faulty, it
needs to be changed. It will do
no-one any good to compound the
problem and accept a double standard
by teaching respect for, and imposing,
a value system which may be altered,
ignored, or abused at will.

W ell, I can just hear Shana Alexander right
Jack, uu old free enterprise frump! I always
thought that it would be a clear sky oer Three
Mile Island before 1 ever heard you say an unkind
word against American Big Business. But now this,
and all because you missed a plane! Wake up,
Jack. You are final!) living in the same society as
the rest oi u. Welcome to the America of today;
careless workmanship, or workpersonship, and
insincere management all team up to give it to us
each day
In case you have not read Mr. Kilpatrick's
broadside in the Wednesday News and Observer.
you might want to take a look. For years the
reactionary apologist tor Big Business, Mr.
Kilpatrick lambasts the current state of services in
this country, using the DC-10 grounding as a
springboard for his bitterness at being kept waiting
for an hour due to an oversight by TWA.
1 agree with Mr. Kilpatrick (gasp). Not only does
TWA not give a tinker's damn lor their passengers,
the other airlines do not either. Or how about
Firestone, who had to recall thousands and
thousands of their steel-belted radial tires, only after
a few people had been burned and maimed in
collisions caused by the faulty tires.
Speaking of unspeakable crimes, consider the
Ford Motor Company, who marketed a few-
hundred thousand Pinto automobiles knowing that
the gas tanks were in quite vulnerable places �
places where they would explode when involved in a
rear-end collision of a little force as 20 mph. A few-
people had to burn in those firetraps-cum-
automobiles before anything was done about that
one, too.
We all have heard the horror stories which Big
Business and Government generate by their
collective iincompetency. But the really scary thing
is this: suppose Firestone, Ford, McDonnell-Douglas
knew about those tires, gas tanks and engine pylons
and simply chose to "get by" in order to save
money? Criminal neglect? You bet. It brings to
mind the question posed by House sub-committee
Chairman John Burton who said, after hearing FAA
testimony on the DC-10, "Jesus Christ, just who is
in charge over their anyway?"
Who, precisely is in charge? It is becoming a
well-founded suspicion that the oil companies are
lying with statistics concerning the stockpile of
crude oil, in effect sitting back and waiting for the
price to go up even further. 1 assume that the oil
companies will not be satisfied until there is a
station (self-service, of course) beside every bank so
that we can get the loan for a tank of gas and fill
up while we're in the same block.
And now, as of last week, this government
agency is claiming that it cannot get gas figures
from that government agency without the inter-
vention of a third government agency which doesn't
wish to become involved.
All ot this talk mav sound like I am as fed up
as Jack Kilpatrick with the bureaucrao of
government, and to an extent I am. But what
infuriates me even more is that most of th-
agencies were formed in regulation oi recalcitrant
industries or communities who did not wish t f
bv the rules of the American Dream, to wit, no
monopolies, equality of opportunity, and so forth.
The oil companies have America right where
lhe want us, and the government has helped everv
step of the way. It has been estimated that iullv
one out of ever three jobs in this nation is
somehow related to the automobile, whether it be in
production, petroleum, TBA. highway?, access
and on and on. Meanwhile, the government ha-
pumped billions of dollars into criss-cross clover
highways and interstates. virtually ignoring pa-
enger trains or other methods of mass transit.
As a result of this massive blindness to
such as shortage of natural resources and other
arcane realities, millions of Americans now burn ga-
while waiting in lines to buv more ga Thi- must
be the final triumph of the oil companies -
have swallowed the.r bait hook. hne. and gallon
until we must have gas because we are so used
our own private transportation. There is. in Rost
the country, no real alternative.
So, Mr Kilpatrick, I'm with you in vour gri,
about the lack ot accountab.htv of B,g Business but
we differ as to the ultimate reason. Have vou not
figured out that these corporat.ons are bigger than
our nation itself? That America be dinned, jus �

Smoking during Pregnancy
Poses Danger to Unborn Babies
Samuel S . C. Yen, MD
Professor and L hairman
Department of Reproductive
'niversity of L alifornia
Sjn Diego
An unborn babv shows a sharp
decrease- in chest breathing mo-
tion after its mother smokes onlv
two cigarettes, according to new
ultrasound findings. A disturbing
image Every pregnant woman
who reaches for a cigarette ought
to keep that image before her.
A fetus cannot be expected to
thrive wuh a limited supply of oxy-
gen. Yet that is essentiallv what a
mother who smokes is asking her
telus to do.
Research from our laboratory
shows that smoking in pregnancv
causes a decrease in the fetal oxy-
gen supply. Nicotine sets off a sym-
pathetic nervoussystem discharge
that causes constriction of blood
vessels leading to the uterus. As a
result, the blood flow carrying oxy-
gen to the fetus is reduced. This.
together with prolonged increase
in the amount of carbon monoxide
in the fetal blood stream may cause
a continuous ox en deficiency
Smokers vs non-smokers
1 he intluence of smoking on
the outcome of pregnancv can be
seen when comparing groups of
pregnant women who smoke with
those who do not. Among women
who smoke, there is a greater in-
cidence of miscarriage, fetal dis-
tress, premature birth, low birth-
weight. and smaller-than-average
body and head measurements
in the newborn. Low birthweight.
with its risks of disability and
death, is four times as common,
and fetal deaths have been 27 per
cent higher.
We are not certain which of the
4.(XW chemical compounds in cig-
arette smoke causes damage to a
fetus. Some investigators suggest
that it is none of these. They be-
lieve that smoking depresses the
mother's appetite, causing her to
limit her eating to a degree that
brings about growth retardation in
her unborn baby. Whether these
effects on fetal growth carry over
into childhood development is not
vet known.

STUDIES NOW SHOW that among women who smoke there is a greater inci-
dence of miscarriage, fetal distress, premature birth, low birthweight, and
smaller-than-average body and head measurements in the newborn. To avoid
these risks, women of childbearing age should not smoke.
The damage caused bv smoking
usually stops when, and if. a preg-
nant mother quits smoking. Break
ing the habit before or. at least
early in pregnancy :s the best way
a mother can protect her babv
from the dangers of smoking.
Pregnancv is an ideal time to edu-
cate her about dangers to her un-
born babv and provide motivation
tor quitting.
Ways to stop
The Massachusetts Department
of Public Health offers several
recommendations to cut smoking
among pregnant women. They ad-
vise health pervmnel to: (11 At
the first prenatal visit, include cig-
arettes in the list of drugs known
to have adverse effect on the out-
come of pregnancy: (2i Tell preg-
nant women that smoking is even
more hazardous if they have a his-
tory of miscarriage or -newborn
loss, bleeding, or placenta! com-
plications: if they are anemic: or if
they are in an older age group:
3� Consider testing every preg-
nant patient for carbon monoxide
levels in her blood and warn her
if the reading is high: l4l If
a woman has any bleeding, ques-
tion her about smoking and re-
emphasie the dangers: iN Pro-
vide pregnant women who smoke
with the locations of "stop-smok-
ing" clinics: ibi Enforce "no
smoking' rules in all health facili-
ties where staff and patients come
in contact.
One sure thing
Although the "what" in tobacco
smoke that endangers a fetus re-
mains unsolved, the 'what-to-do-
aboul it has a clear-cut answer:
women of childbearing age should
not smoke.
Dr. Yen is a grantee of The
S'ational Foundation-March of

defects, the voluntary health or-
ganization supports research into

on her unborn and newborn child.

A new collection of
poetry is released
by a Russian poet
"rends Editor
brillianl book of selected poems has just been
ased. Osip ?landelstam is the name of the book
I the name ol the Russian poet whose reputation,
as been growing rapidly, albeit posthumously.
Osip Mandelstam, one of Russia's greatest poets,
I .luring the revolution and the reign of Stalin.
Mandelstam otters a poetry of this world. This
tion ol his poems, spanning a period of over
inly years, reflects the dominant political climate
the tunes, including the turmoil in St.
i sburg, where he lived.
However, Mandelstam's poems are not just
ntemporarj portraits of man and society. His
isions to ancient civilizations, including Greece
Rome, give his work an ancient bardic quality.
Despite a locus on the concrete, Mandelstam
icvei loses -lght ol man's inner inspiration and its
lalionship to the world he creates. Mandelstam
iks nt the poetic form as being like that of a
cathedral, one is constructed of words, the other
stone, yet loth convey the power of the human
Mandelstam's works have been called "im-
personal his family and friends are missing, the
tails ol his life remain a mystery. Yet in these
poems his presence is profoundly felt, for
Mandelstam transforms his subjective vision into an
expansive view ol the realities around him.
Donald Davie, ol Stanford University, says. "If
we were to call Mandelstam 'classical' this is what
ghl mean, or what we ought to mean. And
ithing i further from what may reasonably be
seen a the characteristic endeavour of the Western
European and American of this eititur) , in all the
arts � that is to sav, the finding of beauty in this
Crusin9 on Evans Street
discontinuous and asymmetrical, the open-ended and
indeed the adventitious
Mandelstam's early poetry has a haiku-like
brevity. It is thematically appropriate that he does
not choose to title hardly any of his poems. They
are the poet's epiphanies, the little, profound
epiphanies. Take for instance the first two poems in
the hook.
Fruit breaking loose from tree �
Hollow, muffled, gingerly �
I he silent sound
1)1 forest all around
I he reference to nature in the above poem
reminds one even more of the haiku. The following
poem is reminiscent of Tennyson, with his short,
brilliant poems.
Suddenly, from the half-dark hall,
ou slipped out in a light shawl �
The servants slept on,
W e disturbed no one
Mandelstram is a poet who, in Eliot's words,
makes raids on the ineffable Compare the
following poem with Frost's "Stopping by the

Confident of their concern.
At the bend 1 am thrown.
Towards star-light
Poet Osip Mandelstam
Mandelstam also wrote slightly longer poems.
But all of his work exudes a gentle love for life, for
the smells and tastes of life, for people, and for the
magic which is the best part of our lives.
James Green's translations are superb. He says
in his preface, about Mandelstam, "Mandelstam
was associated with the poetic grouping known as
Acmeism marshalled against the other-worldiness
ol Symbolism as represented pre-eminently by
Alexander Blok.
Acmeism was a kind of Imagism, aiming too at
poems that would be precise, com rote. and
architectural But just as the tenets oi Imagism
arc not easily discernable in, say. the Pound ol the
Cantos, there is nothing programmatic in Man-
delstam s actual poems either
Mandelstam's poetry have "ahe charm ol
something never yet said
He said once that "it a poem can be paraphrased,
the sheets have not been rumpled, there poetn
has not spent the night
In those term in Mandelstam's poetrv, the
sheets have indeed been rumpled.

Resisting the urge to
watch "Rockford Files"
Friday night (an ex-
treme act of self-denial),
1 found myself parked
at the corner of 4-th and
Cotanche, looking my
radio charged for
some hot stuff. Well,
I'm not going to lie and
say the thought never
crossed my mind, but
just now my attention is
drawn i the busy street
before me.
Mesmerized bv the
summery headlights and
dull shine of dusty cars
chasing them, I realize
that I'm witnessing that
peculiarly American
outdoor drama ridin'
the square. I was first
introduced to this small
town rite of passage
into adulthood ten years
ago in the Piedmont
village of my birth; I'm
struck to find so little
has changed since then.
Amid the din of
horn honking and
squealing tires, the arch
blandishments of young
men are still answered
by that coy nonchalance
Southern girls mastered
generations ago.
I spy two pre-coeds
settled on a grassy-
knoll across the lane;
dragging on their cig-
arettes in unison, they
observe with me this
sexual ritual they
eagerly wait to join.
Perhaps years from
now, when they have
daughters of their own,
they'll wistfully think
back on this evening
scene and realize what
it meant. But now they
are too near it to
understand it; all that
matters tonight is
coaxing a ride from a
shy country playboy
whose Re-Track Trail-
masters have caught
their eye.
Two college-age
ladies get into the car
beside me; I turn and
wave to one a cute
blond acknowledging
her playfully seductive
grin. (Are girls any-
where as lovely as
these? You think it's
impossible, but really,
who's met a woman
who wasn't beautiful
when she smiled?)
Sorry, darlin not
tonight; my heart's
riding with that white
Firebird that just
snaked past. 1 can't
resist wondering if its
my Firebird again,
waiting for a green
light. How can I get
her to look this way?
Mavbe if I held up a

eurism. I'm primed for

Ihe committee also
questioned the report on
the lollowing grounds:
� The design of the

no way for the invest-

not determine whether

had been used.
Ihe quality of the
data was also quest-
ioned because of nu-
merous errors editors
detected when they re-
viewed the forms that
