Media Board chooses
faculty member
By KAREN WENDT
News Editor
The Media Board
named a journalism pro-
lessor as its faculty
advisor during the week-
ly meeting on Tuesday.
John Warren, a jour-
nalism professor in the
department of English,
was interviewed for the
position and was asked
several questions about
campus newspapers.
Brett Melvin, presi-
dent of the Student
Government Association,
asked what Warren
thought the responsibili-
ties of a student news-
paper should be.
Warren replied that
"the responsibilities are
the same as any news-
paper in the world
Melvin then asked
what degree of respon-
siveness the campus
newspaper should have
from the students.
Warren said that it
depended on the respon-
siveness of the students.
The chairman of the
Media Board, Tricia
Norris, intervened and
made a motion to finish
the questioning in a closed trol, which is limited by
session. But Warren the lllh Amendment.

"What authority does

that meals would no
longer be considered a

one-day trips. Meal ex-
penses will continue to
be refunded on trips of
more than one day.
The editor of the
Rebel, Colleen Flynn,
proposed a $15,128.70
budget lor ihe literary
magazine during 1979-80.
The budget was ap-
proved by acclamation.
On a former proposal
by Melvin, ihe board
decided that a subcom-
mittee would be formed
to arrange a survey by

keting and Computer
Science.

Co-op program
By LEIGH COAKLEY
Assistant to the Editor
For many college students, the beginning of a new
school year means the beginning of a search to help
pay for living and educational expenses. With the
rising cost of living and education, most students find
it necessary to work during their college years.
Many find part-time jobs unrelated to their career
goals and courses of study only to find that lack of
experience upon graduation may be a hindrance in
finding the right job.
The Cooperative Education Program at ECU is a
program designed to help students find employment in
their related fields combining off-campus work
experience with periods of academic study. This
enables the student to graduate from college with the
supervised work experience they need.
"Learning and earning" schedules are arranged by
the Co-op staff, faculty advisors, and the student to fit
the student's needs, often alternating morning and
afternoon schedules.
The Co-op program can help in giving students the
opportunity of working with professionals and
integrating their classroom knowledge with actual
practice. The Co-op program may also help the
"undecided" student in choosing a career by weedinR

James Street and behind
Erwin Hall may be made
available for parking
following gravel grading
so that the gravel can be

All the lots involved
under this contract will

unfortunate statistic.

said James. "Last year,
we assisted over 500 of

consequences of leaving a position will not be a-
important as they will be after graduation.
The requirements of this program include the
completion of a combination of classroom study and
work experience. Each student's work experience is
evaluated on the basis of punctuality, performance,
and attitude by the employer, student, and the
university.
The work experience must be related to educational
and career goals of the student. Pay is negotiated
between student and employer. Several educational
and social organization positions are on a voluntary
basis.

government preparing students for careers in
managerial, administrative, and technical position
The ECU Co-op Office has a working agreement
with many offices in Washington, including the
Department of Transportation, Housing and Urban
Development and NASA Headquarters to name a few.
The student's salary level (GS-3, $8,366 annually:
GS-1, $9,391; GS-5, $10,507) is based on the student -
academic status (Freshman, Sophomore, Junior,
Senior). In some cases, academic credit may be earned
by the student while working for one of these agencies.

Minimum score requirements for
the National Teacher's Examination
will increase in 1980, according to a
recent report by the State Board of
Education and the Board of Governors
of the University of North Carolina.
Quality Assurance for Professional
Personnel, a new resolution adopted
in October, 1978 by the two boards,
takes a systematic, continuous
approach in assuring that only highly
competent personnel will be certified
to teach in the state of North
Carolina.
The Quality Assurance Program
establishes a planned sequence of
quality controls beginning with
entrance into a college or univer-
sity and continuing to the point of re-
tirement from the profession. One
such control involves increased N.T.E.
score requirements for students who
plan to teach.
Minimum requirements for all
areas of teaching examinations will be
raised.
While the minimum requirement
for all areas is a score of 480 this
year, individual score requirements
for all areas will increase until 1982.
The smallest increase will be in the
area of An Education. In 1980, the
minimum score for certification for
Art Education will be 490 and by 1982
il will have increased to 500.
The largesl increase will be in the
area of Speech Pathology which will
increase to 540 next year, 600 in 1981,
and lo 670 in 1982.
According to Douglas R. Jones,
Dean of the School of Education at
East Carolina University, no changes
will be made in the education
program offered at E.C.U. Jones said
lhal ihe School of Education was
recently evaluated by the State
Department of Public Instruction and
that the results of the evaluation were
favorable.
He also said that prospective
teachers at E.C.U. have never had
any problem meeting minimum
N.T.E. score requirements and that
ihe school will continue to em-
phasize a strong general and pro-
fessional educational program.

Lab needs work
r
The ECU Photo Lab desperately
needs reorganization in order to serve the
media more efficiently. In the past, the
lab has provided less than satisfactory
services for the media, and the situation
might not improve this year unless the
lab is reorganized.
The failure to publish the BUC-
CANEER last year can be attributed to
the Photo Lab. They failed to meet the
deadlines. Members of the Fountainhead
staff repeatedly complained that photo-
graphic assignments were not completed
on time. Pete Podeszwa, head photo-
grapher of the lab, insisted that lack of
communication was the problem
The Photo Lab handles photographic
assignments for the East Carolinian, the
BUCCANEER, the Rebel and the Ebony
Herald. The number of photographs
deeded by the Rebel and the Herald are
modest, while the East Carolinian and
ihe BUCCANEER compete for most of
the photographers' time. This arrange-
ment pits two or three yearly deadlines of
ihe BUCCANEER against two weekly
deadlines of the East Carolinian. Conflict
is inevitable.
Even in smaller schools such as
Western Carolina University, there are
separate staffs for each publication. This
arrangement . provides fo newspaper
photographers and yeafbfoSf photo-
graphers, with all pnotographers using
the same lab. A lab manager, or a head
photographer, supervises the entire
operation. Editors and photographers can
work more closely together when they are
on the same team. The result is better
service for each publication, and
ultimately, better photographs.
In June, Charles Sune, president of
the Student Union, initiated a study by
the Media Board to investigate the
possible reorganization of the Photo Lab.
The lab was put on a trial period in
August, during which time the photo-
graphers would improve procedures to
serve the media. Little, has been done,
except for the renovation of the darkroom
facilities. This will hardly improve
communication between the lab and the
media.
In October the board will evaluate the
Photo Lab to determine its progress
during the trial period and to decide the
future of photographic services for the
media. The board should realize the
needs of the media and take action to
solve the problem that is preventing the
media from publishing good photographs
for the student body.
The Photo Lab must be reorganized in
such a way that it serves the media fully
and competently. Separate photography
staffs should be hired by each
publication, on their payroll. This would
make the photographers more respons-
ible because they would have an
employer to answer to. Under the present
arrangement, the Photo Lab is a separate
entity. One person should manage the
lab, where all photographers would
process and print their work.
The present arrangement of the Photo
Lab is not acceptable and not functional.
Tne Media Board must make the lab
function for the media.

WEEKLY SPECIAL
By JACK ANDERSON
WASHINGTON - A
touchy question being guard-
edly discussed in the cloi-
stered cloakrooms of Con-
gress these days is whether
there are computer crooks
operating on the floor of the
House of Representatives.
There is undisputed evi-
dence that members have
been recorded on the auto-
mated voting system when
they were hundreds of miles
away.
House leaders are now
seriously concerned there
are imposters in the House
or a snafu in the computer.
They fear a potential "phan-
tom voting" scandal is brew-
ing.
When the automatic card
voting system was installed
in 1973, it was supposed to
be foolproof. Each of the 435
members were given a spe-
cial individual card which
the congressman alone was
to use to cast votes in com-
puter slots at various areas
of the chamber floor.
Last month we learned
that Democrat Illinois Rep.
Morgan Murphy reported he
had been recorded as voting
six times while he was 600
miles away in Chicago.
Subsequently, half a dozen of
his colleagues told of similar
foul-ups. It's against the
rules for a congressman to
cast a vote while not physi-
cally present on the floor.
Obviously, he's forbidden to
give his voting card to any-
one else.
After Murphy's complaint
the House leadership was
faced with a sticky dilem-
ma: either their expensive
computer gadgetry was on
the blink or members were
handing over their cards to
colleagues or someone else
to vote in their stead.
The General Accounting
Office, on quiet instructions
from Speaker Tip O'Neill,
ran a full cheek-up of the
computer machines. Expert
inspectors reported to the
How Administration Com-
mittee that the system was
working fine; there were no
bugs in it.
This could mean that a
"buddy system" may be
operating whereby a mem-
ber slips his card to another
congressman to punch in for
him on a vote. On many
minor bills, this would mere-
ly allow the absentee to
maintain a public record of
being present on every vote
taken.
But on close votes, the
phantom voting could be
decisive and lead to disas-
trous legal consequences.
Laws passed under such
devious circumstances could
come under serious chal-
lenge in the courts and be
nullified on grounds of ille-
gal enactment.
The House Ethics Com-
mittee has been asked to
look into the situation. The
inquiry is currently center-
ing on members whose votes
were recorded on tape when
they were absent. Whatever
the explanation, there is ner-
vousness in the cloakrooms.
A New Draft?Congress is
pitching into debate on a bill
which would require 18-
year-olds to register as
potential draftees. The
measure, if passed, would
affect those with 18th birth-
days after December 1981.
They would sign up with
local draft boards and their
names would be filed in
computers should an emer-
gency military call-up
become necessary.
The Pentagon, which is
sharply divided on the token
registration proposal, is
withholding vital informa-
tion from Congress. The
Defense Department brass
is sitting on a detailed 12-
volume study of mock mobi-
lization exercises and train-
ing problems.
We've seen sections of the
suppressed report and it
paints a weak picture of the
volunteer Army on which
our Pentagon strategists are
leaning. The Army blueprint
counts on superior technolo-
gy and better trained troops
to counter the numerical
superiority of Communist
forces should war erupt.
But the secret report
warns that a high turnover
of troops, ineffective man-
agement and changes of pol-
icy are leaving the defend-
ing U.S. Army woefully
unprepared. "Many units are
not conducting satisfactory
training the strategic
study summarized.
For example, about 19
percent of the Army's tank
commanders and 25 percent
of their crewmen were
found ignorant of how to
aim their guns. Almost 40
percent of the repairmen
and mechanics were unable
to perform their essential
tasks
Elderly Rip-off: While the
oil company barons bask in
higher profits this winter,
the elderly poor of the
nation will face ruinous
heating bills and even the
prospect of literally freezing
to death, according to some
Energy Department experts.
Here are some economic
statistics:
Last January, the average
price for a gallon of heating
oil was less than 54 cents.
Today, it sells for 80 cents
and by midwinter, the price
will be higher.
During the winter of 1974-
75, needy senior citizens
spent 18 percent of their
meager income for fuel oil.
This winter, experts esti-
mate, they'll be ripped off
for 60 to 90 percent of their
income to keep warm.
Last winter, even before
the gouge began, we went
behind the statistics and
came up with these blood-
chilling examples of what it
means to be poor and old in
a winter of heating oil and
gas profiteering.
An 84-year-old woman
incurred a fuel bill of $97 for
a month. This left her $21 to
live on out of her $118-per-
month income.
An 81-year-old man paid a
heating bill of $124 from his
$160 monthly pension. He
subsisted on only $37 a
month for food, clothing,
shelter and other necessi-
ties.
WATCH ON WASTE:
Energy Department offi-
cials wasted money, motion
and time to promote Presi-
dent Carter's urging to keep
air conditioner thermostats
set at 78 degrees this
summer. They mailed out
700,000 brochures to busi-
nesses and industries advis-
ing how to comply with the
edict. They failed to check
current addresses, however,
and the brochures are being
returned to Energy head-
quarters at the rate of 350 a
day. If you have an example
of government extrava-
gance, write to Jack Ander-
son's Watch on Waste, Box
2300, Washington, D.C.
20013.
HEADLINES AND
FOOTNOTES: Saudi Arabi-
an sheiks would seem to be
amply provided with oil and
sand in their desert land.
But recently, five tons of
sand were imported into
Saudi Arabia, ft turns out
their native sand is too
coarse for use in swimming
pool filters Our airlines
recently won a price boost
because of rising fuel costs.
But we've learned that
because of their intensive
scheduling at peak hours
throughout the nation, the
airlines are squandering
fuel. Their planes wind up
stacked over airports, cir-
cling about, burning up fuel
or else sitting on takeoff
runways, also guzzling fuel
Aviation and energy experts
are convinced that by
staggering their schedules
and reducing airport conges-
tion, the airlines could save
$800 million a year.

Brett Melvin
Student Bodv President
SGA VP defends transit
To the Editor:
During my four
months as Acting Presi-
dent of Student Govern-
ment 1 instructed the
transit manager lo lire
anyone who was at fault
while operating an SGA
bus. It was a recom-
mendation that the tran-
sit manager look under
advisement lo use at his
discretion.
The driver that 1
recommended be ter-
minated was not because
the transit manager de-
termined he deserved
another chance. I accept-
ed his decision because I
would not dictate policy
lor a department. That
driver has since amassed
a significant accident
record that shows his
involvement with SGA
transit should have been
curtailed.
The Vice-Chancellor
lor Business .Affairs and
ECU's OSHA office also
contacted me concerning
transit's failure lo supply
OSHA with the proper
OSHA accident forms.
Upon receipt of their
letter I instructed (in
writing) the transit man-
ager that if just one form
laded lo reach their
ollice following the next
accident then his service
would be terminated.
The current overall
manager of transit,
Leonard Fleming, is not
only an outstanding stu-
dent bui an excellent
director of transit. Leo-
nard has been ill and
hospitalized. Once he
returns I can assure you
he will solve the prob-
lems if he gets the
proper support.
There is no greater
priority than safety when
it comes to transporting
students. 1 am embarras-
sed lor the present
people runnirg transit
and can assure you that
student involvement can
improve the system. I
remind all students that
the buses are yours. You
have the right to demand
that they are clean, on
time, and driven in a
sale manner. Do not
accept anything less!
il you incur any
problem with a bus,
demand an explanation.
The SGA transit operates
at your pleasure.

On May 27, 1979 Frank Zappa consented to an
exclusive live interview with Allan. As it turned out,
Frank enjoyed the show so much he returned the
following week for over two hours. These programs
were then heard in part on the "Great American Radio
Show" syndicated world wide.
Now with the release of his 29th album, Joels
Garage, Frank will be calling Allan once again from his
home in California. The show will be live and calls will
be taken. Call 753-4110 or 753-4122.

Both Deacs and
Pirates worry Dye
ECU's defense was constantly chasing Duke backs last Saturday in 28-14 loss
(Photo by John H. Grogan)
Taylor, Heinsohn view ECU
By CHARLES CHANDLER
Sports Editor
Following two consecutive losses, the East Carolina
football team is at a crossroads. Pirate coach Pat Dye
is taking drastic measures to make sure that his squad
chooses the right road before facing a surprising Wake
Forest team Saturday.
"We've made some big changes defensively this
week Dye said. "We hope to gain some espirit de
corps, oneness, or whatever you want to call it. We've
got to gel this team back together again
Dye's concern over team togetherness, especially
on defense, is quite worthwhile. The Pirate defense
has given up 59 points in the two losses to N.C. State
and Duke.
Missed assignments and lack of a desire to win
were cited by Dye as being the big crutches
defensively.
"1 can't imagine not going out and trying to win
said Dye. "But we had some guys on defense who just
didn't try to win at Duke
Dye noted that this lack of desire was showing up
in the defensive statistics. "Right now we've caused
three turnovers in three games. Last year we averaged
causing four per game
Dye noted that there were no real attitude problems
of such in the Pirate camp and said that he had been
cJU-
advantage. He won CC defensive-player-of-the-week
honors ior his play against the Pirates.
The East Carolina-Duke football game last Saturday
was witnessed by a couple ol real celebrities.
In the press box scouting the game for his old club
was ex-Washington Redskin great Charley Taylor,
ray lor, who holds the all-time National Football
L ague record for career pass receptions with 639,
lagan his career as a running back and finished at the
w ide receiv er slot.
Taylor tuitif l th- game looking especially at
Pirate linebacker Mike Brewington. Though Brewing-
lon did not play an especially good game, Taylor still
saw some potential.
He has the size and speed to be a good one
said Fay lor.
Jay lor was impressed with Pirate tight end-split
end Billy Hay Washington. The ex-Redskin great noted
thai Washington had a superb stride and seemed to
run his patterns to near-perfection.
vlso at the game was ex-Boston Celtic head coach
loin Heinsohn. 1 he one-time NBA coach-of-the-year
came to watch his son Paul, a Blue Devil defensive
kle, perform.
V hat loin aw he liked. "After seeing this game (a
i I Duke win), 1 think 1 may have to come watch
some more in the future he said after the gaj in
the Blue Devil locker room.
1 he ex-coach must surely have liked the
performance put on by his son. All Paul did was use
In- 6-6, 215-pound frame to the best possible
EAST CAROLINA AND WAKE FOREST, opponents
this Saturday, have met only once, a 20-10 East
Carolina victory in 1963. In that game present Wake
head coach John Mackovic and the late Brian Piccolo,
an ex-Chicago Bear great, were members of the
Demon Deacon squad.
THOUGH THE PIRATES are a disappointing 1-2
going into the Wake game, it must be remembered
that the Pirates had that very same record last season
alter three games. The team went on to win eight of
their last nine games and finish the season at 9-3 with
an Independence Bowl championship to boast.
THIS MARKS THE FOURTH consecutive week that
the Pirates have laced an "unbeaten" team. The first
three ECU games were against teams who were
playing their initial game of the season. Wake Forest,
this week's opponent, stands 2-0. VMI, next week's
lnc, i.s 2-Q going into this Saturday's game with
irginia.
SATURDAY'S ROAD TRIP to Wake Forest is the
third road game of the season for the Pirates, exactly
halt ol the six they must play this season. East
Carolina must travel to North Carolina Oct. 27, to
Appalachian Slate on Nov. 3 and to William and Mary
lor the season finale on Nov. 24.
PIRATE RUNNING BACK Anthony Collins is
having problems with his shoulder and is not a sure
starter lor Saturday's game. Linebacker Jeffrey
W arren is expected to return to the East Carolina
lineup alter missing the Duke game last week.
Offensive tackle Joe Godetle will definitely not play
against Wake Forest this week due to a knee injury.
COLLINS LEADS THE PIRATES in rushing after
three games with 279 yards on 45 caries, which
translates to an average of 6.2 yards per carry.
Fullback Theodore Sutton is averaging an astonishing
8.0 yards per carry as he has gained 231 yards on a
mere 27 rushes.

A concerned Pat Dye
(Photo by John H. Grogan)
impressed with the team's Monday and Tuesday
practices this week.
"But Dye said, "two practices do not make a
football team. It takes performance in a game to make
a good squad and based on our performance at Duke,
I'd say we have got an awful long way to go before we
become a good lootball team
The changes made by Dye and the Pirate staff
involve two freshmen. Dye said he plans to start frosh
Doug Smith at nose guard in place of sophomore John
Hallow in the Wake game. He also noted that another
lirsl-year man, Freddie Jones, would get the call at the
tree safety position.
Jones will start ahead ol experienced lettermen
Wayne Perry and Thomas McLaurin. "1 was
disappointed with the amount ol aggressiveness shown
at the free safety position against Duke Dye
proclaimed. "I want somebody there who will hit, and
Freddie Jones will Hat knock you
Another change made on the Pirate defense was at
left defensive tackle where Tim Swords will get the call
ahead of previous starter Vance Tingler.
"Another place where there will probably be a
change is at linebacker said Dye. "Right now we
have Glenn Morris and Chuch Johnson listed as
starters
That would mean that Mike Brewington, yes
All-America candidate Brewington, would be benched,
flic reason tor this was his rather poor performance
against Duke.
"It's possible that Mike could get into the picture
and start said Dye, "but heTl have to earn it in
practice Brewington is not listed as a starter now
due to the fact that he graded out only 52 against
the Blue Devils, a poor makr for the average Joe,
much less an All-America candidate.
"Heck, if things don't get better, you could see a
whole new look on this team by the Carolina gamp
(scheduled lor Oct. 27), said Dye.
One of the problems for the Pirates in the two
losses, that lell the Pirates with a dismal 1-2 mark,
was a lack ol team togetherness.
"Individuals can't do it noted Dye. "It takes 11
disciplined players both ways to win. We haven't had
that
Maybe what has happened will bring us together
as a lootball team
It the present adversity does not bring the Pirates
together, Dye says he has an alternative plan.
"Oneness is what we need. And 1 know how to get
it. 1 don't want to have to do it that way because we
are a senior-laden squad.
"Bui it 1 havte tq I can take them on the practice
field and work theai so hard that they'll need each
other just to survive. Togetherness would then become
a necessity.
Dye feels, though, that the Pirates are in a good
situation with a tough Wake Forest team scheduled for
Saturday, a team that disposed of SEC power Georgia
22-21 last week. That win left the Deacons at 2-0.
"We don't need to play a mediocre team said
Dye. "We need to play against a good football team
and we will do that Saturday. We not only need to play
against a good team, we need badly to beat a good
learn
So the game with the Demon Deacons is an
intersection of sorts for the Pirates. A loss would put
the learn on a road toward a collision with tragedv'
while a win would gel the team back on the path to
continuing the winning tradition at East Carolina.
Cuineliinc Saturday is 7:30 p.m. at Wake's Groves
Hailiuin.
Following 22-21 win over Georgia
Surprising Deacons hope magic continues
By JIMMY DUPREE
Assistant Sports Editor
Having beaten the highly favored Georgia Bulldogs
22-21 last week, head coach John Mackovic and his
staff this week face another major challenge when their
Demon Deacons of Wake Forest host East Carolina.
"We have to prepare a totally
different game plan than we used at
Georgia
59
Wake coach John Mackovic
Wake coach John Mackovic
After a dismal 1-10 record in his premier season at
Wake, Mackovic now enjoys the admirable position of
being 2-0 in 1979, including a season-opening victory
over the Mountaineers of Appalachian State.
"Our win over Georgia was great said the
inspired Mackovic. "But we've got to get our feet on
the ground in order to prepare for East Carolina.
"Offensively and defensively they are probably the
fastest team we will face this season. Defensively they
have excellent speed in the secondary; speed good
enough to play man-to-man coverage on the pass.
"I know they are a little down after having lost two
games, but look at their opposition. N.C. State and
Duke are both very tough. Pat Dye has always had a
very strong team and this year's team is no exception
because they run the wishbone so effectively.
"We have to prepare a totally different game Ian
than we used at Georgia Mackovic cautioned.
Offensively the Deacs are guided by senior
quarterback Jay Vento, who was red-shirted last
season but took the starting position from sophomore
Dave Webber in spring drills.
All-Atlantic Coast Conference running back James
McDougald returns for his final season in the black
and gold of WFU. Having already set the school
rushing record and led the DEACS in scoring the past
three years, McDougald is the man in the backfield
which the pirates must stop.
"McDougald had a great day Saturday against
Georgia said Mackovic.
McDougald rushed for well over 100 yards and
spirited Wake Forest past a Georgia team few
speculators gave them a chance against.
"McDougald is the strongest back we'll face this
year proclaimed Pirate assistant coach Bobby
Wallace. "He's like a tank; just runs over people. He
is definitely one of the strongest backs in the country
ECU's Pat Dye holds McDougald in high regards,
also.
"T predict he'll be one of the top four or five backs
drafted in the nation next year Dye lauded.
Wide receiver Wayne Bumgardner was heralded for
an outstanding game offensively.
, Defensively, the key word is experience.
, The Deacs return five seniors from their 1978
defensive unit, including leading tacklers Marc Hester
(Sr 6-1, 225) and Carlos Bradley (Jr 6-0, 215).
"Wake Forest's defense is very experienced
stales ECU assistant coach Ken Hutcherson. "They
return nine starters. They're probably the best
defensive team we've played, technique-wise. They
might gel beat physically, but not out-techniqued.
"The nose guard, James Parker, is in on all the big
plays. He's the heart of their defense.
"Strong safety Mark Lancaster does a great job for
them also. He plays off the blocks well and does an
excellent job on pass coverage. Our offensive team has
its work cut out for it
An interesting thing about the Wake team is that
they were picked by Penthouse magazine as one of the
iwenly worst college football teams in the country this
season.
The magazine said, "Wake Forest may lose every
lime out in 1979 the Deacons can be counted on to
average less than ten points a game
Georgia head coach Vince Dooley knows better. So
does Pal Dye.

Wolfpack pounds Lady
Pirates in season opener
ECU volleyball action
In loss to Ranquello

By JIMMY DuPREE
Assistant Sports Editor
Lady Pirate volleyball tapped off the first match of
the 1979 season Tuesday with a crushing loss to North
Carolina State University, 15-3, 15-4, 14-16, 15-9.
"Slate's strategy was to serve cross-court said
ECU coach Alita Dillon. "The serve-receive is what we
had trouble with all night
The Lady Pirates quickly fell behind to the powerful
Wolfpack, never rebounding until the third game of
l he match.
II you're keyed on someone hitting hard, thenyou
automatical set up lor the block said Dillon. "The
player can hit hard and have the ball knocked down by
the blocker, hit it soft and try to drop it in front of the
defense, or loll the ball over the blocker and in front of
the digger
The digger is responsible for any shots past the
blocked. Off-speed shots (those directed between the
blocker and digger) are also the responsibility of the
digger.
"We hadn't worked on the off-speed game, so we
weren't able to adjust as soon as we should have. I
plan lo lake care of that in our next few practices.
"It shouldn't have taken us two games to adjust,
though. The people on the sides away from the play
have lo be able lo read the shot and tell whether the
spiker will hit hard or not by the angle of her hand and
her approach lo the net.
"Some players have a little better reaction time
lhau others, but experience counts a lot also.
Communication is very important on a play at the net
such as that.
Dillon attributed ECU's sluggish performance to
numerous factors, but would not blame any one
problem for the loss.
"We've changed our offense and we're using plays
we never used before said Dillon. "Sometimes you
try a little loo hard and make mistakes that you
wouldn't it you played more relaxed.
"Our hilling is much more powerful than what we
showed (Tuesday) night lamented Dillon. "Sharon
Perry didn'l hit as hard and as well as she can, but
she gave us a good all-around performance.
"Yvelle Lewis did very well with her placement of
spikes. She was able to get around blocks fairly well.
Joy Forbes had a good game for us defensively, also
Hie Lady Bucs travel to William and Mary
Saturday lor a lour-way match featuring N.C. State,
William and Mary, Salisbury State and Virginia
Commonwealth.
"It's going to give us a chance to get our offense
and defense clicking a little better than they were
against Slate.
"1 thought that we had worked on that enough to
execute belter than we did. Our serving wasn't as
accurate as it should have been.
"fins will give me a chance to let a lew ol the girls
play who didn't gel to against State so I can see just
how much deplh ve have.
We have a lot ol experience.1

As the world lurns �n
baseball's most intri-
guing real lite drama �
the .Nt-vv York Yankees'
version ot "Days ol Our
Live?" � questions whet
the appetite, just as in an
alternoon soap opera on
rv.
Is the honeymoon
over between owner
George Steinbrenner and
Ins volatile super star,
Reggie Jaekson?
Will Reggie be tossed
out ol the house like
some mustachioed villain
at the insistence of his
haled rival lor the
owner's l'avor, Manager
Billy Martin?
When did the honey-
moon begin to fray at the
seams Who done Reggie
in? Himself or some
sinister outside forces?
Will he find happiness
elsewhere?
Tune in tomorrow and
see.
W hen Reggie, shortly
alter signing a five-year,
S2.9 million contract with
the Yankees, told a
magazine writer that he
� not Captain Thurman
Munson, not anybody
else � was "the stick
ihal stirs the drink he
wasn't kidding.
Reggie never lets the
waters gel calm. 11 he
isn't leading a September
surge lor the pennant,
blasting three home runs
to clinch a World Series
or provoking a rain of
"Reggie bars from the
stands, he is feuding
with his manager or
saying uncomplimentary
things about his boss.
"Controversy follows
me around like a black
cat Jackson once said
sorrowfully.
The latest incident
arose at the "Goodbye to
Catfish Hunter" day last
Sunday at the Stadium.
Reggie said he had this
handsome golden replica
of the World Series
trophy to present to his
longtime teammate and
Steinbrenner wouldn't let
linn do it.
Steinbrenner insisted
n vsasii'l so. He didn't
even know about the
request, he said. He
intimated Reggie might
be up to some old tricks
� using other people to
serve his own purposes.
Jackson insists that
he has lost communica-
tion with Steinbrenner
and draws only "boos"
from strongly pro-Martin
lans who once cheered
him. He says he wants
out. Sleinbrenner's pa-
tience is visibly wearing
thin. Martin is said to
have made two requests
within the past week that
the Yankees get rid of
their controversial, clutch-
performing super star.

When a determined huntress sets about snaring a
partner lor an experiment in eugenics, imagine how
dizzily her college professor victim finds his marriage
pinning. Mendenhall Student Center offers Leslie
Stevens' "The Marriage-Go-Round" as its first dinner
theatre of the year. A professional company, the
Alpha-Omega Players, will be performing the show.
I lie premise of the show is an apocryphal story
concerning intellectual George Bernard Shaw and
dancer Isadora Duncan. Duncan suggested that Shaw
lather a child of hers, because his brain and her body
would produce the superman Shaw was always writing
about. Shaw reportedly replied, "But what if the child
inherited my body and your brain?"
John Payne plays the besieged college professor.
Jean kay Siiford portrays his tartly witty wife, also a
college professor and Dean of Women. The very
seductive and calculating daughter of a Swedish
professor is sinously played by Vicki Hughes. The
oung, very amorous bachelor professor is taken by
kem Johnson. The scene moves from the beleaguered
household to the college classroom, where both
husband and wife hold forth on marital relations.
I'lie professor husband, an anthropologist,
describes the history of male sexual behavior in terms
ul his own predicament. The wife professor, a
sociologist, personalizes the Kinsey report, concluding
llial women must put up with untrustworthy men
because That's all there is The Swedish siren,
meanwhile, slithers around seductively in her pursuit
ol science.
I he School ol Home Economics is catering food for
all lour performances. October 3 and 4 will be special
dessert performances for E.C.U. students, faculty and
sial'l only. Cheesecake with fruit topping and apple pie

Singers to perform
Mike Williams will perform Sunday, Sept. 23, at
8:00 p.m. on the Mall.
The Student Union
Special Attractions Com-
mittee will present Mike
Williams in concert on
the University Mall, Sun-
day, September 23, 1979
at 8 p.m. The show
promises lo be a fitting
conclusion for E.C.Us
anticipated victory over
Wake Forest.
Mike Williams is one
of the strongest solo
performers currently
touring. He has opened
concerts for more than 25
nationally known acts. It
is not unusual for
reviews to favor his
performance over the
headline act.
At six-foot two, top-
ped by a mane of red
hair, with a booming
bass-baritone voice and a
big twelve-string guitar,
Mike fills the stage all by
himself. His stories and
songs flow out naturally
and easily, and Mike has
the knack for immediate-
ly figuring out who his
audience is, and staying
one step ahead of them
the whole way through
the show.
Mike has recorded
two albums, The Radio
Show and Free Man,
Happy Man. Both albums
are lull of his original
songs, some of which
have also been recorded
by John Denver, The
Irish Rovers, and Mike
Cross.
The music has a
country flavor to athe
pace of the show is down
home, and folks have a
tendency to sing or shout
along with Mike on
several of the choruses.
Everything about the
show demonstrates that
Mike's first concern is
for his audience. He
wants them to have as
much fun as he himself
does.
In case of inclement
weather the concert will
be held in Hendrix
Theatre, Mendenhall Stu-
dent Center. � Also
Singer-songwriter Gene
Colton will appear in
concert at East Carolina
University Tuesday, Sept.
25 at 8 p.m. The
perlormance, a return
engagement; is spon-
sored by the ECL
Student Union, and will
be held in Wright Audi-
torium.
Now a recording star
with Ariola Records,
Colton has long been
known as a veteran ol
the college and small
elub circuits. His latest
single, "Before My Heart

Wet Willie plays
despite problem
By WILLIAM JONES
Features Editor
Meatloafs All Revved Up (With No Place to Go)
blared appropriately from The Attic's twin six foot
speakers. Wet Willie's roadies frantically hopped about
the stage, adjusting an amplifier here, a reverb unit
there, hurridly compensating for last minute technical
problems with the P.A. system. Their efforts to cut as
short as possible an ever-lengthening delay failed to
placate the increasingly hostile crowd.
Forty minutes late, the lights dimmed, and one of
the South's most successful bands took the stage with
flair. Wet Willie opened the show with a lively, upbeat
number called "Ditty-ditty But the crowd, angry at
the delay, was unresponsive. Wet Willie played on.
Jimmy Hall, lead-singer, cajoled the audience through
each number. His physical and stylish resemblance to
Mick Jagger ranged from amusing to gut-wrenching as
the band went through songs ranging in style from
Soul to "White Reggae Nearly all of Wet Willie's
numbers were characterized by a light, funky rhythm.
Finally, persistence (and quality music) succeeded.
The demanding rhythm and lyrical rendition of "She
Won't Give It Up (Get It The Hard Way)" won the
audience over. The remaining numbers, including the
group's biggest hit, "Keep On Smiling and their
current 45, "Weekend had the crowd screaming for
an encore.
Wet Willie, from Mobile, Ala plays music with an
oplomistic feel. Their tunes show a heaw
rhythm-and-blues, soul and, of course, rock-and-roll
influence. It is "good feeling" music, flightly funky
and easily danceable.
AJ Handleman, of WRQR radio, Farmville,
interviewed the members of Wet Willie for his I V
program. The program was aired on Friday, Sept. 14.
v portion of the interview was recorded at 3:15 a.m.
that same Friday morning after the concert. The

The Attic, and the Greenville area. It is reprinted with
Mr. Handleman's permission.
Handleman: We're speaking with two of the
members and the manager of Wet Willie. We have
here Jack and Jimmy Hall, vocalists with the group.
They are brothers; Jimmy is the lead singer and also
plass harmonica and sax. Jack is younger and plays
lead guiiar and bass. Despite the fact that the P.A.
was not up to the standards of a 'big' group like Wet
Willie, the audiende thoroughly got into it and the
group was dynamite.
Wet Willie: You get accustomed to the sound after
one or two songs. The audience enjoyed the show in
spile ol it.
There was a delay, tonight, some problems with the
1 v. system. What happened?
W lien hiu play clubs, it's a lot more intimate, more
tun in some ways, but you don't have the control over
the equipment. We don'l carry a P.A. system with us
to club dates' the club provides them. Our
"club-crew" spent a lot of time working on the sound
system here trying to get it to sound right (it did sound
good, in spite of the problems.) We did have trouble
with the sound and monitoring systems, and the crowd
was beginning to get restless. It was close to 1:00
before we got started.
Did-you feel the vibrations from the audience?
Despite the problems, they thoroughly got into it.

Super Grit
Hosts benefit
Sunday, September 23rd at 3D30 p.m the Super
Grit Cowboy Band headlines an outdoor country-rock
lest to benefit the Lakeland Center in Littleton, N.C.
The concert kicks off Lakeland's 1979 Arts and Music
Festival scheduled thru September 30th.
Also appearing will be Tumbleweed, a group who
irequently tours with Super Grit because of their
distinctive, yet complementary sound. At a recent
outdoor performance in Wilson, N.C, the two bands
drew an estimated 3,500 ecstatic fans.
Filling our the afternoon's entertainment are two
groups making their first appearance in the area,
Home & Jamieson and Paydirt. Both bands are
expected lo serve up a good selection of country, rock
and blues flavored material.
Dividing their time between constant touring and
working on their second album in the studio, Super
Gril is also negotiating with a couple of interested
national record labels, concerning distribution of their
future product. In addition, the five member band
regularly plays at the Lone Star Cafe in New York City.
It was al a performance last spring in "New York's
wildest honky tonk" that the band eyed a familiar

By S. MAURICE JONES
Features Writer
Arthur C. Clarke has reached the end of the line,
both literally and figuratively. His latest novel, The
Fountains of Paradise, is also his last. As Clarke
himself put it, "I've said all I wanted to say
Ending a gloriously eventful career, Clarke has
been involved in such milestones as being a consultant
lo NASA, writing the screenplay to the highly
acclaimed film, 2001: A Space Odyssey, based on his
own short story "The Sentinel and a long term
friendly ieud with fellow scientist and writer, Isaac
VMIllOV .
The Fountains of Paradise is set on the island of
Taurobane, a fictional version of Clarke's home Sri
Lanka, lormerk Ceylon. The story concerns two men,
King Kalisada and Vannevar Morgan. King Kalidasa,
a second century monarch, designs the ultimate
paradise garden on top of the mountain, Sri Kanda.
Bui before his dream can become a reality, he must
first overcome the opposition that wishes to remove
him from his llirone.
Two ihouand years later, Vannevar Morgan, the
twenty-second century's most prominent engineer,
envisions a lower stretching from earth into space.
Like King Kalidasa, Morgan has problems. Finances
are minor. The real dilemma is getting permission
from a group of monks who consider he mountain to
be sacred.
The book is definitely superior to most of the trashy
fiction currently being marketed, but certainly a
disappointment considering some of Clarke's previous
works. He seems to have abandoned his talent at
weaving an intricate plot, instead relying on the weak
and simple formula used in Imperial Earth, Clarke's
la?l novel. Plot-wise, Clarke has written better works,
most of them near the beginning of his career,
particularly his 1953 anti-utopian triumph, Childhood's
End.
The plot is not the only weakness evident in the
book. Several chapters, congruent in theme to
Clarke's 1973 Hugo and Nebula award winning novel,
Rendezvous with Rama, were included and have a
small, if not superfluous, relevance to the main
storyline.
ihe ending is a cheap one; the type that leaves the
reader terribly angry and grotesquely dissatisfied. A
unier ol Clarke's caliber should have produced better.
loo many loose ends were left dangling, and the entire
purpose seems to have been defeated by the
incompetent, escapist conclusion.
Other things contribute to general reader confusion.
Frequent allusions to Hindu and Buddhist theology
play an important and integral part in the overall
understanding of the book, and unless the reader is
somewhat familiar with these religions, it is extremely
hard to comprehend the book's more complex ideas.
Several minor characters, serving equally minor
purposes, lend to jam avenues of clarity. Quoted
verses, some of Clarke origin, and some genuine,
serve no conceivable reason.
While The Fountains of Paradise contains evident
flaws, its many virtues balance out to make the book
worthy of perusal. The analog between King Kalidasa
and Vannevar Morgan is well handled; an ingenious
accomplishment on the literary scale. It also serves to
prove that ultimately, all men have the same fanatic
dream: lo reach the stars, or in a more figurative
sense, obtaining heavennirvana.
The prose is strong. At times, it is expertly laden
with brilliant imagery. Otherwise, Clarke writes in a
tight, straight-forward manner. Its length is adequate;
not boringly long or acutely short.
With the exception of the minor characters
mentioned earlier, Clarke's creations are easily
believed and the average reader would have little
trouble identifying with them. Their strengths and
weaknesses are explored to full potential. Priorities are
dear, and Clarke is consistent in keeping them within
the plain of plausibility.
Lighter moments are not lacking in this mostly
dramatic novel. The book is finely garnished with a
hearty seasoning of Clarke's subtle humor. Occasional
interjections suggest that things considered to be of
great significance in this and the pre.ious decade will
be confused bv people of the twenty-second century.
Reader, familiar wilh CLarke also have the upper hand
as he constantly advertises his earlier works in devious
puns. Ihe zenith of humor comes as Clarke chooses to
immortalize Walter Cronkite by naming a school of
electronic journalism after the noted television
anchorman.
.vrlhur C. Clarke was born in England in 1917.
viler serving in World War II, he began writing and

numerous short stories and 40 books, with 20 of them
being volumes of fiction. In addition, he has
co-aulhored seven books. Clarke is a two-time Hugo
wvard recipient and has also received the pretigious
Bradford Washburn Award, given for outstanding
contributions to public understanding of science.
Clarke currently resides in Colombo on the island
paradise of Sri Lanka.
