Randy Ingram, former SGA attorney
general, attempted yesterday to introduce
what he called new evidence to the ECU
Media Board against the advertising
director of the ECU student newspaper,
Robert M. Swaim.
Charges were brougni against Swaim
by former SGA President Tim Sullivan
during the 1978 re-election campaign of
Sen. Jesse Helms. Sullivan contended that
Swaim published five advertisements for
Helms in The Fountainhead without
payment or a disclaimer.

Attorney David B. Steven Swaim wa

The Media Board, with the exception
of SGA President Brett Melvin. decided
that the introduction of new evidence was

White arm bands show unified support of hostages
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)-Americans in California

response to a Charlotte woman's suggestion made
Tuesday during a talk show on a Charlotte radio station.
The woman suggested Americans wear the armbands
as a show of unified support for the 49 Americans being
held by Iranian students in the U.S. Embassy in Tehran.
Dick Pomerantz, host of the WSOC radio talk show,
aid he has received calls from a talk show host in San

picked up on the idea.
Pomerantz said some Atlanta residents heard about
the idea and were planning to wear white armbands

Dead horse exhumed
Maybe the dead horse won't get up
Ever since the Helms ads ran in the
campus newspaper two years ago, there
have been complaints concerning
Robert Swaim, advertising manager of
The East Carolinian.
Swaim, in his official duties as head
of the advertising department, sold
several political advertisements to the
committee backing the re-election of
Sen. Jesse Helms.
Tim Sullivan, the former SGA
president, promptly made a complaint
to state election authorities stating that
the ads were run without payment �
that Swaim had run the ads
The Helms campaign authorities
stated to the elections representatives
that the ads had indeed been paid for.
Receipts for the payment were
examined, and the case was closed.
When state authorities decided there
was no violation, Sullivan and others
decided to bring the matter up before
the campus judiciary, but University
Attorney David Stevens advised Chan-
cellor Brewer that Swaim had
committed no crime, and there was no
reason for a student-led proscecution of
the advertising manager. The chancellor
concurred in a subsequent memo to the
former Dean of Student Affairs James
Chancellor Brewer stated in his
memorandum that Swaim was not
guilty. The case was closed again.
On Monday the dead horse that has
been whipped twice was given artificial
respiration. John Randolph Ingram III
appeared before the Media Board
yesterday to bring up the matter again.
This foolish persistence continues
despite the following facts:
�Swaim has committed no crime. He
was cleared by federal election
authorities and the Chancellor.
�The Media Board could not make any
decision because they do not have the
authority to hire and fire individual staff
members within the various media.
�The Media Board could hold the
present editor responsible for Swaim's

Cooler heads, to paraphrase the
chancellor, did prevail in the meeting
Wednesday. The Media Board, knowing
full well that it had no basis for action,
did not allow itself to become a political
forum for those whose only real
argument is that an employee at the
newspaper has been vocal in his
disagreement to policies set down by
former and present student government
If we allow the persecution of people
because they disagree with us, our
system of government is a farce, and
we will be no better than the lower
animals who crawl upon the earth.
Let's give that dead horse a decent
burial and move on to bigger and better
facts from fiction
First of all, we must apologize for
having to write this editorial, but we
have a responsibility to convey the truth
to the best of our ability. Granted, it is
not the most rewarding job, but it does
serve a useful purpose.
Our first encounter with the past
rivalry between the press and the
student government began this semes-
ter, and others who are just realizing
this fact feel the same way we do � it
stinks. Upper classmen have become
accustomed to it and ignore it; the
faculty probably feels the same way.
SGA President Brett Melvin was
interviewed by our assistant news editor
yesterday, and he gave his opinions of
The East Carolinian. His opinions are
valid, as are those of anyone, and we
can not in good conscience rebut Wm.
But we must correct some errors in fact
to clear the air, if that is possible.
In the interview Melvin said we
blamed h�m for the defeat of the
appropriations for the East Carolina
Gay Community. The editorial clearly
stated that the legislature failed to
honor a jecision made last year and
ignored a legitimate campus group.
He said that we blamed him for the
cut in funds for the ECU Playhouse.
The editorial clearly stated that he had
ignored his campaign promises by
remaining silent when he should have
Concerning the stolen letter from
Tim Sullivan, he was upset that we did
not stress that the letter was stolen. A
reporter asked Melvin and Randy
Ingram if the letter was stolen and the
possibility of pressing charges. Neither
of them would say the letter was stolen.
More than once Melvin refused to talk
to East Carolinian reporters because he
said "the system will work things out
Melvin denied the inference that he
was receiving orders from Tim Sullivan.

Editor Marc Barnes anonymously),
Sullivan said, "The business wSwaim,

Industry reacts to baldness
Editor's note-Larry Popelka
wrote in his column
several weeks ago that he
was seriouslyand ab-
surdly-thinking of shaving
his head. He finally
decided to do it, and the
following is Larry's de-

Melvin criticizes The East Carolinian
By TERRY GRAY
Assistant Mews Editor
EDITOR s NOTE: The following interview took place in
Brett Melvin's office after the Media Board meeting
I he East Carolinian: Since your election last year, the
relations between yourself and The East Carolinian have
not been the best. The paper has usually taken an
adversary role. What do vou think the role of the paper
Melvin It should be that of a responsible press which
rt the tacts. I realize that one has to report the
as one sees them, but a lot of times, for example
(Nov. 27) editorial, they didn't do their

� lit' involvement whatsoever with the Drama
with the Ga Community bill. Yet they placed the
blame tor the defeat of the Gay Community bill and the
the ECl Playhouse bill on me. There's no way I
ive touched those hills � that was done by the
ture. I did veto the REAL Crisis Center bill, hut
rial made it sound like I had done evervthing.

on page 4
EC: The Sept. 27 issue of The East Carolinian ran an
article about a letter from former SGA President Tim
Sullivan which instructed you to do certain rhinos
relative to the SGA newsletter. Why didn't you make an
official statement at the time about the letter?
Melvin: I was extremely upset that the paper did not
push the point that the letter was stolen. I was the
victim of a Watergate-type trick. I've already resigned
myself to the fact that the paper will print whatever the
paper wants to print. As an investigative body, if they
want the true story, they should come to me for it.
EC: It appeared that Sullivan was some kind of behind-
the-scene manipulator. Do his opinions and attitudes
affect the way things are done in the SGA today?
Melvin: It takes two weeks for a letter from Thailand to
reach America, and things move too quickly in any
government organization for any individual halfway
around the world to manipulate.
If a past editor of The East Carolinian were to give
suggestions to Marc (Barnes, editor), I'm sure he would
listen because that person has been in the same
position. That doesn't mean that you will follow those
suggestions; it simply means that you will listen with
an open ear. That's what I do. But his influence on my
decisions at this time would be very minimal. The
average student has much more influence.

click. Also, The East Carolinian has been adept, at least don't believe that the students would ever have been

lids university. Board meeting.
EC: Why are vou
always apprehensive about being
Melvin: Well, for one thing, when I'm speaking in front
of the legislature, I don't mind my picture being taken
at all. When I'm sitting down and thinking or writing, it
EC: Are you concerned about your image in the paper?
Melvin: Well, yes, I think my image in the paper has
been thoroughly tarnished. I don't think there's
anything left there to be concerned about.
EC: What do you mean by "tarnished"?
Melvin: The students read the paper, and they only see
one side of things � they see the paper's side. There
are two sides to every story, and it bothers me that
often the side the paper gives is slanted. I do wish that
it would be a little more objective. I do not feel that the
paper is objective when it comes to the issue of the
SGA, or to the issue of Brett Melvin.
Sometimes I feel that the statements I give to the
paper are used in the context they want to use them. I
hate to see things taken out of context � it's like
statistics: there are lies, there are damned lies, and
there are statistics. With reporting, there's the truth,
there's the story, and then there's the things that are
taken out of context.
EC: Is this the reason you wanted an SGA newsletter?
Melvin: Not so much to give our side of the story, but to
cover the things in the SGA that the students are not
aware of, and to show the positive aspects instead of the
negative aspects that the paper covers.
For example, with the paper not coming out last
Tuesday (Nov. 20); that's a negative aspect of the paper.
On Ingram "new evidence'
EC: In that same meeting, you wanted very much for
the board members to hear former SGA Attorney
General Randy Ingram, who aid he had new evidence
regarding old charges against The East Carolinian that it
had provided free advertising fur the 178 Jesse Helms
campaign. Why? The concensus seemed to be to pass
the matter back to Chancellor Brewer
Melvin: I don't believe in passing the buk, which is
exactly what I thought the) did, and I feel the reason
they did it was because they knew that it wouldn't be
acted on. The chancellor ha already made the de ision
that the issue is dead. Well, anytime, in anv case where
there is new evidence, the case should be reopened. The
least we should have dune is give (Ingram) our ear
EC: Do you have any closing comment?
Melvin: I want things to be open; I feel that I've opened
up the administration more than ever before. I've had
high members of the administration come and -peak
to the legislature, which has never been done at thi-
university before. If I haven't accomplished anv thing
else during mv administration, I have opened up the
administrators to the students so that now thev hear
what the students think, and not jut what other
administrator- tell them.

No, he's not a race car driver, although the name
"Crash" might depict such a career. The nickname
transpired from his high school football days.
When I think of the word "crash I think of power.
Such is Mr. Craddock.

His generosity in allowing me time to talk with him
on a very short notice left a marked impression of a
giving man. Honesty in all respects, even at times when
it might "damage" him, is another fine quality.
"Crash" is a native North Carolinian, and
Greensboro is the town he considers home. When asked
if he would ever move to Nashville, an emphatic "No"
was his reply.

A color videocassette
showing similarities of
wrestlers' techniques as
shown in a 4,000-year-old
Egyptian mural and in
collegiate matches today is
available for viewing at
East Carolina University.
The videocassette, en-
titled "Wrestling � the
World's Oldest Sport
was produced in the ECU
Closed Circuit Television
studios and presented to
the ECU library's Media
Research for the sub-
ject was completed by
Milton Sherman of Win-
terville, a candidate for
the master's degree in
physical education, as part
of his work toward com-
pletion of his thesis.
A printed copy of the
thesis will be housed in
the traditional book section
of the library.
Sherman narrates the
presentation, using slides
from his research to illus-
trate wrestling techniques
from ancient times and
from various cultures,
comparing these techni-
ques with present-day
wrestling moves, as de-
monstrated by two ECU
students, Frank Schaede
and James Ross.
A native of Washing-
ton, D.C. who grew up in
Arlington, Va Milton
Sherman graduated from
Yorktown, Va. High School
He transferred to East
Carolina after two years at
Troy State University, and
received the BS degree in
health and physical educa-
tion from ECU in 1974.
Sherman was a North-
ern Virginia Regional
wrestling champion in
high school, and won area
Freestyle titles. His record
of more than 300 matches
includes 100 collegiate
competition matches adn
40 tournament wins.
He placed nationally in

tournaments in Freestyle,

In addition, Sherman
has been active in the U.S.
Wrestling Federation and
has officiated at local,
state and national level
matches. In his four years
of high school coaching in
North Carolina, his teams
have never finished lower
than fifth in the state
His career started while in high school. According to
B lly it was a long hard road to a number one. Many
may be familiar with his hit "Rub It In" from 1974.
However, I wouldn't limit Mr. Craddock there, because
he has certainly blossomed with an ever growing career.
During the Fall "Crash" performs 3-4 days a week,
travels between cities, and has many hours to spend
with family. The summer months are very demanding
and keep Mr. Craddock on the go 2-3 weeks at a time.
Whenever possible, the family travels to see him,
especially if he's close to home.
Every performer makes sacrifices for the career they

inevitable; the biggest sacrifice being time away from
the family. It's a difficult sacrifice, but I don't believe
his family ever really leaves him. They are a part of
him, traveling in his heart and cheering him on.

Billy said it is glamorous if you love the work; and he
loves his work.
"How do you measure success in your own life?" I
asked. Mr. Craddock expressed the idea of continually
"getting polished improving yourself and, yes, getting
that country music award. However, he also expressed
the idea that whether you make it to the top according
to set standards or not, success is largely based on self
satisfaction. For "Crash" his success not only lies in

parachutists behind enemy lines.
The helmets endowed us with an even more ragged
look. They resembled hockey helmets that had been

Our instructor guided us to a site on Jockey's Ridge
that was the correct elevation and faced into the wind.
By the end of the lesson, the wind had picked up
somewhat and flights were now longer and higher.
I was now flying with more control over the kite, and
I had a chance to open my eyes to my surroundings. The
snow-geese had started their migration from Canada and
now were accompanying my on my flight with their
barks and honks. The sand blew from one side of the
ridge to the other in patterns of swirls.
The momentum of flight propelled me through the
rest of the day sans kite.
The sand was gritty, and we always came face to
face on landings. I have yet to pry it out of my pores.
My shoulders and arms ache with the happy burden of
the glider before launching and in mid-air.
I have been infected with a thirst for flight, and I will
go back for more.

awards and albums, but also the fact that he loves his
job, his family, and being on the road.
Beside knowing that his manager, family, and crew
give him support, I asked if he felt God's guidance in
his career. Mr. Craddock related a story to me.
For fourteen years Billy struggled for a hit and none
came. He decided to quit and told his wife. Two weeks
later Dale Morris from Nashville said he had another
song for "Crash" to try.
Mr. Craddock said he prayed for the first time that
he'd have a hit.
"Crash" said, "That should answer your question
One disappointment for me was that Billy didn't
write his own songs and that most of them did not
necessarily correspond to events in his own life.
However, this does not hide the talent of his golden
voice. When listening to several of his songs, I hear a
combination of styles. In many ways he reminds me of
Elvis � in a natura, non-synthesized way.
Tony, Mr. Craddock's manager, was the first of the
Craddock team I spoke with. He is a very business-like
man, yet polite and understanding of my request to
speak with his super star.
Through a conversation with Ken, a member of
SouthernNights, "Crash's" backup vocalists' I learned
that the band Dream Lovers exists of six members. The
crew travels in a chartered bus driven by Gene Wyrick.
Mr. Craddock's immediate family consists of his wife,
May, and three children, Billy, Steve, and April.
Because Billy knows its a long hard road in the
music business his advice to college students interested
in music as a career is to get the degree. He sees it as
something to help support you during the climb, and
always something to fall back on.
Perhaps now you know a little about Billy "Crash"
Craddock. However, I suggest you let him speak (sing)
for himself. A personal suggestion is his album,

Odom, Pirates open

ECU guard George May nor, a pro draftee, leads Pirates into Spider Classic
By CHARLES CHANDLER
When the East Carolina basketball team begins its
season this Friday and Saturday in the Spider Classic in
Richmond, Va it will mark the beginning of the Dave
Odom regime. Hopefully for Pirate fans this regime will
be more successful than some of the more recent ones at
Odom takes over a team that went 12-15 last season
and 9-17 the year before under Coach Larry Gillman,
who resigned after last season amidst growing criticism
of his success, or rather lack of it, at the Pirate helm.
Odom brings with him impressive credentials,
including helping lead Wake Forest to the NCAA
tournament and a national ranking in 1977. He is also
credited with the signing of many great Demon Deacon
The new coach's first game will not be an easy one
as the Pirates face Virginia Commonwealth in the
tourney's opening round. The Rams return four starters
from a team that went 20-5 last season.
"Virginia Commonwealth is no doubt one of the two
or three best teams that we'll play this season said
Odom. "They really have great personnel
The Pirates lost to the Rams twice last season, both
in overtime, so Odom says revenge may be on the
minds of his players. "The kids are really looking
forward to this game he said. "I'm sure they'll play
all-out because of last year
Odom says the tournament is an important one for
the Pirates, as winning it would give important
"At the end of the tournament we will be able to
evaluate where we really are as a team Odom said.
"We have made some strides in preseason. Now we'll
find out just how big they were
The first-year Pirate mentor said that though
progress has been made in the ECU camp, there is still
a lot of work to be done. "I still realize that there is
much to be done said Odom. "We're still a long ways
from the team that I hope we'll be in Februar and
Odom says the Pirates will try to force VCU into a
running game, as the Rams are well known for favoring
a slow tempo. "Our best chance is to spread the game
out over the whole court he said. "We'll press full
court and they'll probably only go half court
Odom is expected to go with the same starting lineup
that he used against Marathon Oil in an exhibition game
last Monday. Starting in the 103-92 win were guards

Ex-football star Joyner key for grapplers
Dye rumours begin anew
Everybody knows what a good coach ECU head man
Pat Dye is. right? Exactly right. So right in fact that at
least one major university is fishing for his services.
The University of Wyoming is interested enough that
their athletic director visited Dye Wednesday and talked
with him at length. There is speculation that Dye was
offered the job out west. The Cowboys are members of
the Western Atlantic Conference.
Dye's name has also been linked somewhat at
Louisiana State, though several other names have been
mentioned with more authority. A member of the
Independence Bowl Committee said recently that Dve
was under consideration, though. Dye said last week
that he had not been talked to directly by LSU officials
about that vacancy.
Another possibility for a Dye move cuuld come if
N.C. State coach Bo Rein becomes the head coach at
LSU. Rumor has it that Rein will be offered the job
soon. The chance that he would turn it down is very,
Should Rein move from Raleigh, Dye's name is
certain to surface again. N.C. State Chancellor, Joab L.
Thomas, afterall does have a background at the
University of Alabama, where Dye was an assistant for
Such speculation about Dye is not new. Last season
he was mentioned at several major universities when
their coaches wre either fired or moved on.
The question of whether or not Dye would take any
of the jobs mentioned this year comes down to yes,
maybe and maybe. He would surely head to LSU if
offered the job there. The opportunities would be
tremendous. One should keep in mind though that, at
the moment, Dye is a real longshot for that job.
Whether or not the sixth-year ECU mentor would
head to N.C. State or Wyoming is questionable. He
would definitely be more likely to opt for the Wolfpack
should he have to make such a decision.
But let's not rule out East Carolina University just
yet. Dye is no doubt happy in Greenville. He has very
nice living quarters and many friends here. He is
treated in Greenville with the same sort of respect that
Dean Smith is in Chapel Hill. During football season
Greenville may as well be Dyeville.
It would no doubt take many hours of deep thought
before Dye would think of leaving ECU. It is a
well-known fact that he is deeply into building the Pirate
program to national prominence. To hear him talk of this
is evidence enough.
It is also a known fact that Dye likes smaller-type
towns where the people are friendly and everybody
knows everybody. In a sense, Greenville more than
meets this requirement.
Requirements are something that Dye likes to see
met. They are also something that he most definitely'
meets. With all the schools that have considered him in
the past, one must wonder how much longer ECU and
Greenville can hold out.
As the old adage goes, only time will tell.

For the past two years, East Carolina's wrestling
team has not been to successful, winning only lour dual
matches, but new head coach Ed Steers has reason to
believe that this year's team can improve. One of those
reasons is senior D.T. Joyner.
"I played football and wrestled for four years
Joyner said, "but things got kind of turned around last
"I was supposed to wrestle last year and play
football this year, but a couple of guys got hurt last year
and had to sit out. So Coach Dye had me come back to
play football last year and I was supposed to wrestle
"But I broke my wrist in the Independence Bowl
game and I had to sit out from wrestling. So, I'm back
this year for wrestling
Therefore, Joyner, who was seeded eighth in the
1978 Nationals at Maryland University, was red-shirted
for the 1978-79 wrestling season. That move made him
eligible to wrestle this year.
Joyner first became interested in wrestling in high
school and went on to win the State Wrestling
Championship in Virginia.
"That opened a few doors down here and got me a
few scholarship offers he said.
Then came the task of picking a university to attend.
Joyner decided on East Carolina because "they seemed
to be the most interested in me at the time
Also the fact that Joyner was assured of being able
to wrestle and play football here, solidified his decision.
As far as the current season is concerned, Joyner is
"not really happy with my performance. Last year when
I sat out, I have to admit, it did hurt a little bit. My
In regard to this year's team, Joyner remarked, "It's
been sort of a transition the last couple of years due
to the changing of coaches, but with the "team morale
as it is, the record'll probably be better than it was the
last couple of years
Joyner feels that this year's senior members of the
wrestling team, as well as nationally-ranked junior Butch
Revils, are "trying to help the team along as much as
Another element entering into Joyner's slow start in
wrestling this year is a situation that plagues most
seniors: "I'm really into my education right now he
said. "Corrections (his major) is a pretty stringent field
as far as requirements are concerned.
"I can't stress that enough he continued, "the
In reference to combining school work with athletic
participation, Joyner said, "You can't sacrifice one for
the other. It has to be a total commitment to both
In the four years he has spent wrestling and playing
football at ECU, Joyner has found some interesting
One is. "in football, when one guy messes up, the
team can cover for him. But out there in a match, it's
just you and that other guy. If you do your best, it'll be
seen. If you quit, it'll be seen. It a total picture of your
personality on that mat
Another difference Joyner pointed out is the training
"In wrestling, they don't stress weights as much a
thev do in football he said. "Where the linemen are
concerned, thev had us lifting every other day or so
As a heavy-weight wrestler, he lifts weights mainly
to ton-up his muscles, while gaining "strength from
isometric exercises; the push ups, pull ups. and things
In regard to his future aspirations, Joyner remarked
that he would like to use his corrections major to
become a probation officer, or perhaps try to become a
professional football player in the Canadian League. He
feels that his wrestling career will be over when his
college days end.
In corrections work and wrestling, D.T. Joyner ha-
picked two different aspects of life that consistentlv
place him in contact with others. Perhaps he summed up
his situation best when he said, "I kind of like dealing

Lady Pirates win, 86-54
By JIMMY DuPREE
Assistant Sports Editor
Junior forward Kathy Riley poured in 21 points and
senior Rosie Thompson added 22 as East Carolina
drilled UNC-Wilmington 86-54.
The pair netted 12 each in the first half along with
Lydia Rountree's 10 to help the Pirates to a 41-21
Wilmington trailed only 6-4 in the opening minutes
of the contest, but ECU rattled off 10 unanswered points
and later built to a 23 point spread before closing the
margin to 20 at the half.
The visitors appeared to be mounting a comeback in
the second half as leading UNC-W scorer Darci Wilson
sank three early field goals, but the hot outside shooting
of Riley and the fierce inside play of Thompson silenced
"There were a lot of aspects we weren't pleased
with said ECU coach Cathy Andruzzi. "We played a
little too fast.
"I can't say enough about Kathy Riley. She's a
scorer, a real perimeter shooter. She plays with so much
intensity; she is the cause of a lot of our hustle
"My role is different from game to game says
Riley. "There will be games when I will be a passer and
there are games when I will be a scorer and I have to be
satisfied with when those games!come. We have to put
this game behind us; we didn't play as well as we
should. We have to play smart
Point guard Laurie Sikes directed the fast-paced
offensive attack, dishing off nine assists to her
"Laurie makes things happen offered Andruzzi.
"She's the type of player you have to have at that
Thompson provided 10 rebounds, while UNC-W
center Linda Plum was the high performer in that
category with 11. Lanky Marcia Girven grabbed nine for
the Lady Pirates.
ECU connected on 38 out of 80 field goal tries for a
47.5 percent night. The visiting Lady Seahawks shot 17
out of 58 for a miserable 29.3 percent clip.
"We were glad to be back home said Andruzzi. "I
think we could have kept them down to 40. We should
have had many more rebounds than we had. We're
going to have to do much better in that department. I
look at this game as a learning experience. I'm glad we
got this game out of our system.
"Rosie plays better against a six-foot player than she
does against 5-7 players
East Carolina's record is now 4-0 after the
non-conference victory, while UNC-W drops to 2-1.
The Lady Pirates travel to Durham Saturday where
they will do battle with the Lady Blue Devils of Duke at
3 p.m. in Cameron Indoor Stadium.
