One Witness Sees
Possible Suicide
Assistant News Kditor
n anonymous caller told The East Carolinian that a
man had been seen jumping off the Green Street Bridge
into the Tar River Tuesday around 3 p.m. Rescue
squads dragging the river have not discovered a body as
of Wednesday at 6 p.m.
Greenville Fire Chief Jenness Allen said that
eyewitnesses saw a black male, approximately 30 years
old, weighing approximately 160 pounds, standing on
the edge of the Green Street Bridge. "One of the
eyewitnesses was driving the car when he saw the man.
He turned to say something to the other passengers and
then turned back to look at the man and he was gone.
The driver continued to the other side of the bridge then
turned around. When they came back to where they
thought they had seen the man standing, they looked
down into the river and they were pretty sure they same
a man floating down the river
James G. Smith, deputy fire marshall, said that, ac-
cording to one witness (name withheld), the man
jumped off the bridge and when he hit the water, he ap-
parently decided to fight the current and attempted to
swim to shore. The witness lost sight of the man after
the apparent suicide victim had floated about 100 yards
down the river.
Chief Allen informed The East Carolinian that the
river was dragged from Monday afternoon until
Wednesday afternoon at 5:30 p.m. No body has been
found. Grifton, Farmville and Greenville rescue squads
took part in the dragging operations.
Periodic checks on the river will continue for the next
few days, according to Chief Allen.
Melvin To Visit Carter
Staff Writer
SGA President Brett Melvin will
go to Washington, D.C. this week
to attend a meeting President Carter
has scheduled with 200 student body
presidents from around the nation.
According to the invitation
Melvin received Feb. 6, the meeting
will begin at 9:30 a.m. Friday, Feb.
15, and will end at 5:00 p.m.
Participating in the meeting will
be senior members of the White
House staff, the domestic policy
Brett Melvin
staff and the national security coun-
cil, said the invitation.
Melvin expects that the main
topic of discussion at the meeting
will be the President's proposal to
renew draft registration.
"There have been several anti-
draft demonstrations on campuses
in the last week, and keeping in
mind that this is election year, I
think Carter may be worried about
the popularity of his policy. He
wants to feel out the reaction from
student representatives Melvin
Melvin said he supported draft
registration for men and women,
but does not think women should be
sent to the front line.
Melvin added that he intends to
be active in the proceedings, and
will question the President on the
economic outlook for the nation's
Carter has been criticized, chiefly
by Sen. Ted Kennedy, for conduc-
ting reelection effort from the White
House rather than on the campaign
trail. But Melvin believes Carter has
a non-partisan concern for student
opinion on his policies.
"I'm sure there is an element of
politics behind this, but I don't
think that is the only reason said
Melvin added that he has not yet
made up his mind who to support in
the presidential election.
Student government presidents
from six universities in the UNC
system will attend the meeting. The
participating schools are East
Carolina, UNC-Charlotte, North
Carolina A & T, Winston-Salem
State University, Appalachian State
University and UNC-Chapel Hill.
Of the five other SGA presidents,
only Gray Marion of Appalachian
State could be reached Wednesday
for his comments about the
"More than any other president
in recent history. President Carter
has tried to involve younc leader-
ship Marion said.

President Charlie Sherrod Wednes-
In response to an SGA resolution
passed last week, Buck's Gulf Sta-
tion, East 10th Street Ext and Curt
Smith's Amoco, 10th Street and
Evans, have agreed to charge cam-
pus rates to ECU-registered vehicles
parked illegally in the city.
The normal charge for towing in
the city is $25 before 6:00 p.m. and
S30 thereafter, but the lowered
charges for illegally parked student
cars will be $15 and $20, respective-
The SGA resolution, adopteu
Feb. 4 and distributed to 14 Green-

deciding on the rate deduction. Sta-

"The city has individual contracts
with all the wrecker services, and
they tow cars on a rotation basis
said Sherrod. "This means that only
three out of 14 wrecker services will
be towing at the reduced rate, and
whether or not you pay the lower
charge depends on who is up on the
rotation list
Sherrod thinks there may be a
way to get all student cars towed for
the lower charge.
"I'm going to be contacting the
city councilmen and the mayor to
see if the city would agree to support
these lower rates said Sherrod.
The Greenville towing ordinance,
h sets the terms for the con-

rod said that it may be possible to
amend the ordinance so that the
police would only send the par-

"The three stations that lowered
their off-campus rates are saying
'thank you for your business' in a
positive way said Sherrod. "By

not mean that all student vehicles

The Air Force ROTC sponsored
the American Red Cross blood drive
Jan. 29-30in Wright Auditorium to
aid all Pitt County residents.
This was the second blood drive
during this academic year. Accor-
ding to Lt. Col. Carl E. Tadlock,
chairman of Pitt County American
Red Cross, ECU students, faculty
and staff provided "terrific" sup-
port for the drive. Five-hundred
ninety-one pints of blood were col-
lected during the two-day visit.
Cadet Kenneth Whitai er, project
officer for the blood drive, said that
in addition to support from the
corps of cadets, fraternities,
sororities and dorms went all out to
make this a very successful drive.
There were three groups in which
trophys were awarded. One group
consisted of fraternities, sororities
and clubs. The Phi KappaTaus gave
the most blood of any fraternity.
Scott Dorm received a trophy for
winning in the independent group.
The Gamma Beta Phi sorority was
presented a plaque for their outstan-
ding support of the drive by pro-
viding a large quantity of food.
Whitaker was very appreciative of
the volunteer services provided by
the ladies from the Greenville Ser-
vice League, volunteer nurses and
the American Red Cross. The total
amount of blood collected by the
cadets in October and January was
1,367 pints.
Lt. Col. Tadlock said he has
never seen such an outpouring of
concern and desire to help others
than was indicated by the students
of East Carolina who donated
blood. He said more women give
blood than men.
The need for blood in Pitt County
has increased since the completion
of the new Pitt Memorial Hospital,
and from all indications, the need
for blood will continue to grow.
ECU students, faculty and staff
provide approximately 60 percent of
Pitt County's blood quota, accor-
ding to Lt. Col. Tadlock.
In the last decade, the ROTC
cadets have collected about 8.000
pints of blood and almost 25.000
pints since the first drive in 1951.
According to Mrs. Ruth Taylor, ex-
ecutive secretary of the Pitt Count)
Chapter of the American Red
Cross, the ROTC blood driven are
the best-organized drives in the
Support along the foodline u-
given by everal Greenville
businesses. Doughnuts and cookies
were provided by Krispy kreme.
Jerry's Sw?et Shop, and Harris
Supermarket. Hardee's donated
about 200 free hamburger coupons
to aid in the drive.
Another blood drive is scheduled
for March 27-28.

circulated in Washington Wednes-
day that the United States and Iran
have reached a tentative agreement
that would lead to the release of
some 50 American hostages held in
Tehran since Nov. 4.
Jody Powell, the president's chief
spokesman, said he would neither
confirm nor deny the report, first-
aired by ABC News, that the
hostages would be freed following
establishment of a commission to
investigate alleged crimes of the
deposed Shah Mohammad Reza
The commission would be set up
under United Nations auspices,
ABC said.
Powell told reporters that, "For
the time being, that report falls into
the category of reports that it is
neither necessary nor productive to
comment upon
He added, "I urge you to realize
that I am neither confirming nor de-
nying the report
Earlier, however, both Powell
and State Department spokesman
Hodding Carter had sharply criticiz-
ed Sen. Edward M. Kennedy,
D-Mass for having claimed as his
own a nearly identical proposed
solution to the hostage problem.
They said Kennedy stole the idea
from briefings given him by the ad-
President Carter was to hold a na-
tionally broadcast news conference
at 8 p.m. EST, Wednesday, and
there had been earlier speculation
through the day that he would use
that forum to announce a
breakthrough in the Iranian crisis.
On Tuesday, State Department
officials had said they would not
have comment on the hostage situa-
tion during regular press briefings.
Reports of tentative U.S. accep-
tance of an agreement with Iran
came as Iranian President
Abolhassan Bani-Sadr said in an in-
terview broadcast from Paris that
revolutionary leader Ayatollah
Ruhollah Khomeini has accepted a
three point "action plan" for
negotiated release of the American
ABC said in its report that the
hostages would be released when the
members were named to the interna-
tional commission, and that under
the agreement the hostages would be
free to testify before the commission
if they wish.
The commission will be made up
of Third World countries, according
to the network, which said the
hostages would not be detained by
the Red Cross or any other third
party under the plan.
The network reported that as
soon as the commission was ap-
pointed the hostages would be
release to U.N. officials in Tehran.
ABC did not say what the pur-
pose of the commission would be,
but earlier disscussion of such a pro-
posal indicated that it would give an
international airing of Iran's
grievances against the United States
and the deposed shah.
Bani-Sadr's three-point proposal,
as outlined in the French newspaper
Le Monde, would provide for
release of the Americans if United
States acknowledges "crimes"
against Iran during the reign of the
shah, accepts Iran's right to ex-
tradite the shah and seize his fortune
and promises not to interfere in Ira-
nian affairs in the future.
It was not known if the reported
U.S. acceptance was of a plan
disclosed earlier this week by Presi-
dent Abolhassan Bani-Sadr of Iran,
or whether Bani-Sadr's initial plan
had been changed.
The report on the U.S. accep-
tance, carried by ABC News, said
the hostages would not be detained
by the Red Cross or any other third
Instead, it said, they would be
released to United Nations officials
in Tehran after the members of a
commission were named. Under the
agreement, the hostages. hJd at the
U.S. Embassy in Tehran for 102

the commission if they wish, it said.

mission's purpose would be. It said

SGA Bus Stolen
Features Kditor
An SGA transit bus was ap-
parently stolen last night when it
was returned after its normal run.
The bus was found 50 minutes
later by campus police.
According to Transit Manager
Leonard Fleming, the driver of the
bus, Mark Folsom, came to
Mendenhall about 9:50 p.m he and
went inside to call for a ride home
and record his hours.
He met Fleming in the office, and
Fleming offered him a ride home.
They left the building together,
the bus was gone.
lt was reported stolen to the Cam-
pus Security, which found the vehi-
cle in the freshman parking lot on
14th Street at about 10:40 p.m.
"I'd like to find out who did it
said Fleming. " I will be pressing
charges if I find out who did it.
The only damage done to the bus
was something that is affecting the
light switch,so that the ligts will not
go on.
According to Lt. Johnny Rose the
Greenville City Police Department
took fingerprints at the scene, but
no legible prints were found. There
are no suspects in the case so far.
"The investigation is continu-
ing said Rose.
"Somebody was out jovriding. 1

Fleming mentioned the possibilty
of a reward being offered in the
case, though there was no further

This Newspaper's Opinion
ERA Is Needed Now
Amendments to the United Stages
Constitution should always recieve
a lot of thought from the public, the
Senate and the Congress.
However some things can go too
A case in point is the Equal
Rights Amendment (ERA) which
has not yet been passed by enough
states to allow it's entrance into the
Constitution, despite the fact that it
is a relatively simple amendment
which consists only of three short
They are:
Section 1: Equality of rights
under the law shall not be denied or
abridged by the United States or by
any state on account of sex.
Section 2: The Congress shall
have the power to enforce, by ap-
propriate legislation, the provisions
of this article.
Section 3: This amendment
shall take effect two years after the
day of ratification.
That's it. The whole thing. Yet
this short amendment has caused
some of the biggest controversy's in
the history of the United States.
The amendment passed both the
House of Representatives and the
Senate by large margins. When it
first went to the states to be ratified
it was recieved well. But when it
came down to the last few votes, the
momentum failed, and it has yet to
be ratified.
Congress granted ERA backers
an extension for the bill in hopes of
their ability to pass it but there is lit-
tle time left.
The vast majority of the states
which have not ratified the ERA are
in the south. No traditional
southern states have passed the
amendment, and a look at a map of
the states which have not yet passed
the ERA shows a large area in the
southeastern quadrant which is
empty of votes.
Why, is the first question that
comes to mind. It is a simple
amendment, it is clearly stated and
is very concise.
Yet it has been passed in only 35
states, and since the that time three
of those states have voted to rescind
their ratification.
Only 38 states are needed to make
the ERA law.
Professor Ruth Bader Ginsburg
of the Columbia School of Law said
it well when she said that the ERA
"would give the courts an
unassailable basis for applying the
bedrock principle all men and
women are created equal
The ERA does not mean that
women must go out and work, it
means that if they choose to do so
they can not be discriminated
against because of their sex. They
will have equal rights under the law
in all things: rights to work, own
property, get a loan, buy a car, or
do any number of things which at
the present time men can do, but
women have a much more difficult
time in doing.
The Equal Rights Amendment
should, and must pass into the
United States Constitution.
It gives no one extra rights or
more rights than anyone else, it only
guarantees rights that every citizen
in the United -States should have.
The right to be free. That is what
the constitution is all about.
To deny women such freedom is
to deny over 50 percent of the
United States population the rights
which are guaranteed to the others.
Fair is fair.
Paranoia Hits Buses
Pity the poor SGA bus.
It's been maligned, neglected, in-
sulted, run down, run into, wreck-
ed, towed in, towed back, driven
hard, and put up wet.
This is a shame. And now one has
been stolen.
We have a sneaking suspicion
that the SGA bus is beginning to get
paranoid. After all, it is a bit much
to expect a bus to take all of the
above, plus being stolen and return-
ed, within the same school year.
We feel sorry for the poor buses.
They aren't as pretty, or as glorious,
or as glamorous as their cousins
who work for Trailways.
They don't have pretty girls to
serve as hostesses. They don't make
trips to exciting places. They don't
star in lavish television commer-
cials. While their cousins get to pose
with movie stars in t.v. spots, all the
SGA bus gets to do is run out to Pitt
Plaza shopping center, fifteen or
more times a day.
Then there's the matter of pre-
judice. Small cars, old ladies, young
blades, and dachshunds all have a
fear of seeing their lives come to an
end under the wheels of an SGA
bus. Students scatter, and avoid the
bus as it goes down the street.
Students who are riding in cars say,
"OH NO, here comes an SGA
bus Then, everyone in the car will
laugh and giggle and guffaw.
It's a hard life for a bus.
Therefore, we make with good
faith the following suggestions:
�Ding out all the dents, and paint
each bus purple. Not dull purple;
not the dull shade like a '45 Hudson
that has been left out in the sun too
long, but a shiny, sensuous, sexy
shack of purple, with gold trim.
rLetters To The Editor
�Install in each bus cut-pile shag
carpeting, with seats upholstered
mink and sable. Place curtains in
the windows. The curtains should
be made of the purest satin.
�Install in each bus a wet bar, and
stock same with liberal amounts of
scotch, bourbon, beer and various
illegal weeds. "Rolling papers should
be provided courtesy of the ap- �
plicable student fee that would be
increased to pay for it.
�Place waterbeds in each bus, in a
separate cubicle. If you don't know
why we are throwing this in, we are
not going to tell you.
�Go out to a stereo dealership.
Place in each bus a 1500 watt per
channel stereo receiver, with a
liberal supply of Jimmy Buffett,
Jackson Browne, and Bob Dylan on
cassette tape. Place two auditorium-
sized speakers in the back.
�Have each bus include Myrtle
Beach on its route.
�Go to the nearest Kenworth
truck dealer and have truck-sized
custom mag wheels placed on each
bus. Place a C.B. radio in the cab of
each bus, and a Cat hat on the
drivers. Then, put that hammer
�Put an add-a-bead polisher and
a penny-loafer polisher on each bus,
for our friends of the Greek persua-
�Install a lighted, computerized
dance floor in each bus, complete
with a disco d.j. and the appropriate
dancing music, for our friends of
the freshman persuasion. Charge a
cover charge at the door.
By this time, we have bought
about seven new buses, and spent a
little over $2 million. The money
could have been put to worse use,
we suppose.
Legislation Of Morality Backfires
To the Editor:
1 have always believed that to respond
to an argument which is blatantly ig-
norant or absurd is to give credence to
that argument. However, the controversy
generated by the recent showing of "Life
of Brian" has raised an issue which is so
vital to the preservation of American
freedom that I feel compelled to speak
Both the protests (led by Van Dale
Hudson, pastor of Trinity Free Will Bap-
tist Church) and Hudson's letter to the
editor of The East Carolinian are predic-
table responses from those who would
ment seems to me to be the ultimate
I can't help but wonder why Hudson et
al. are so afraid of "Life of Brian If
their faith is secure, they have no reason
to be threatened by the movie. Are they
afraid they might laugh and prove that
they are human after all? Do t'ucy trust
their own abilities to choose between good
and evil so little that they can't trust
anyone else's?
The basis of God's relationship to man
since the Garden of Eden has been the
presence of good and evil and man's exer-
cise of free will in choosing between the
two (something the "Free Will" Baptists
deprive us in the name of morality, of seem to ignore completely.) Unless man
our constitutionally endowed freedom of freely chooses good over evil, God is not
speech and our God-given freedom of glorified by the man who is good. (In fact,

right to show the film. Biblically, it isn't

find evidence that God has relinquished

that my argument means that people

which was given man by God.
As Christians certainly they should
voice their opinions concerning "Life of
Brian however, the issue is not the
movie itself but the rights of individuals
to choose for themselves.
Historically, it has been the nar-
rowminded people like Hudson who
would legislate morality for the rest of us
without seeming to realize that such
legislation can backfire. Just suppose that
the producers of the film decided to sue
on the basis that their constitutional rights
had been violated. Without doubt Hud-
son would amass his supporters and enter
and for that reason alone I would not
presume to force my moral choices on my
fellow man. I am not God. Neither is

Individuals Must Be Mature
To the Editor:
It was nice to read Van Dale Hudson's
letter regarding "The Life of Brian ex-
the battle. Now, suppose Hudson's group pressing himself as allowed by Article I in
wins; I am certain they would consider Amendments to the Constitution. Now
this a great victory for Christ. However, i�m going to express myself, but rather

Listening only to- their opinions on
something is great for making you feel
that there's a lot of support for your opi-
nions, but is it giving you a very roundcJ
view of the item in question?
The analogy comparing lighting a slick
of dynamite to seeing the movie tor
yourself is witty, but carrying the idea
past the breaking point. When it corner
around to the film maker putting VD or
LSD in the popcorn or throwing stick
dynamite at the audience, THEN it's time
to censure him.
Shouldn't individuals be ab'e to make
decisions for themselves, based on ra-
tional ethical considerations, and i "
this in fact a fundamental ideal of the
Christian way of life? Wouldn't it be
more desirable to have as a fellowship.
Christians who have had to deal with both
sides of the issues and come up with an
ethically correct decision, rather than a
flock of sheep that has been spoon fed b
the mother church and protected from
any exposure to elements outside the
Christian realm?
It might appear that I'm asking a lot of
questions. But I would like those who deal
heavily in dogmatic statements to start
asking themselves more questions. M
friends opinions of the movie, and
reviews I've read, paint a very different
picture of "Brian" than Van Dale Hud
son's. But I haven't seen the movie either.
so that puts me on an equal footing with
the pastor to debate this on purely ethical

The ECU Playhouse production
of "Boy Meets Girl" is undeniably
one of the most ambitious undertak-

No one else but Bill Roberson

Who started this holiday anyway?
Well, contrary to popular belief, it
was not started by an enterprising
young man named Hallmark, or by
a demented postal clerk.
There are several theories about
the origin of the holiday. One of
them dates back to the ancient
roman feast of Luprecalia. It seems
they had a custom in February to
put all of the local ladies' names in-
to one place, and the man who pick- mail 25,000 on those grounds. They
ed out a lady's name would become did mail 1,250,000 others, however.
The holiday may have gained its
name from the old Norman word
"galantin which means "being a
lover of women The w was nor-
mally pronounced like a v; thus.
The date of the holidav is believed
to have evolved from the belief o
people in the Middle Ages that birds
began to mate on February 14.
The holidav did not become com-
mercial until the postal rates began
to go down. Then some local
businesses realized there was money
to be made and began producing
cards with messages for people to
send to their loved ones.
However, some were termed
"coarse and vulgar and in
Chicago the post office refused to

The custom changed somewhat in
later years, but in the 1400's, the
Christian clergy objected to the
custom and attempted to change it.
They decided the name of saints
would be substituted for the names
of girls, and the person who drew
out the saints name would try to be
more like him the in following year.
Apparently the custom died soon
after that. A writer named Richard
Le Gallienne wrote in 1892 of the

tions however.
Cites like Love, Mississippi; Darl-

people who want a colorful

The name is thought to have come
from one of two sources. It is believ-
ed that there were three Saint Valen-
tines, all of them martyrs, though
their connection with the present
holiday is uncertain.
For those who have not yet met
their true loves, and who are in-
terested, there is a way you can

Brando in 'Last Tango'
Staff Writer
This Friday and Saturday at 7 and
9:15 p.m the Student Union Films
Committee will present Italian
director Bernardo Bertolucci's con-
troversial film "Last Tango in
Paris" in Mendenhall Student
Center's Hendrix Theater.
Admission to the film is by Stu-
dent ID and Activity Card or by
Mendenhall Student Center
Membership Card.
Rated "X" upon its release in
1972, "Last Tango in Paris" stars
the radical Marlon Brando as well as
Italia actress Maria Schneider.
Bertolucci's film is a perversely
romantic almost psychotic valen-
tine. Brando plays Paul, an
American expatriate whose wife has
just committed suicide. Crazed with
grief, he roams the streets in Paris
until while apartment hunting, he
faces an unknown woman across an
empty room.
Brutally, without a word, he
rapes the soon-compliant stranger.
It should have been hit-and-run sex,
but Paul stays at the scene of the
erotic accident.
Typical Brando character that he
is, Paul decides to invent pure love
out of pure sex. While arranging his
wife's funeral, Paul leases an apart-
ment where he is to meet the fren-
zied woman for three afternoons of
more sex.
Jeanne finds Paul's treatment so
shockingly original that she even
believes herself to be in love with the
man who debases her � when she is
really only fascinated by her own
capacity for debasement.
For Brando's Paul it is again a
con game in reverse. He thinks he is
using the women, when she is really
using him. Paul is soon dissatisfied
with mere possession of her body;
he must also have her mind.
What Brando brings to "Last
Tango in
Paris" is something
without precedent in his career. Into
his other films he had put his talent;
into this one he has put himself.
Bertolucci's method is improvisa-
tional, and he doesn't want actors to
transform themselves into the
characters but the other way
Brando told Mel Gussow of The
New York Times that he lost interest
in Paul and became interested in
Brando, instructing him to forget
the part and remember what was in-
side him.
"He was hunting for all the
secrets he had hidden in all his
films the director told Richard
Schickel of Time magazine. "He
loved and hated improvising his
scenes. He loved it because it was
new for him and hated it because it
seemed a violation of his own
privacy As Brando works from
within, several scenes in "Last
Tango" transcend art and almost
turn into psychodrama.
"Brando acted as my analyst and
vice versa Bertolucci told The
New York Times. "I thought of him
as a co-author Indeed it is Bran-
do's performance that rescues a
baroque and distressingly uneven
and shocking film.
In the context of Brando's career
the film's conclusion is
simultaneously exhilarating and
very sad. Here is a man at the point
of achieving a form of greatness
that leaves him ultimately un-
satisfied. Son after, Oui magazine:
"In a funny way, I was never an ac-
tor. 1 suppose 1 never really knew
what I wanted to do or what was
possible for me to do. I acted
because I was trained to do nothing
else to make a living, but now I

Imagination Required For Dodging New Draft
Assiytaat Features Editor
Since President Carter's recent
proposal to reinstate draft registra-
tion, many able-bodied Americans
have expressed increased interest m
avoiding the possibility of becoming
a casualty statistic in any upcoming
war. Evading the draft may return
as a national pastime.
President Carter also instituted a
new policy of equal rightsi re-
questing that women be required to
sign up for possible conscription
Draft evasion will become subject to
equal rights - less women want to
fight than men.
The old methods of draft dodging
are no longer available. The govern-
ment has seen to that. There will be
no conscientious objectors and
educational deferments will be dif-
ficult or impossible to obtain. And
Canada recently said it would not
harbor Americans fleeing the Selec-
tive Service.
Women are said to have an ad-
vantage over their male counter-
parts. Rumor has it that hundreds
of thousands of women wishing to
avoid military service are planning
to become pregnant. However, the
armed forces' are too sharp for that
� they'll merely create pregnant
female divisions We'll hear Walter
Cronkite say, "The 66th Pregnant
Artillery shelled Kabul today
The serious draft dodger of the
80's will have to be far more creative
than the Vietnam-era evader. Here
are some possible solutions.
�Groups of six or more can join
together and become a bleacher in
Minges Coliseum.
�Claim you're waiting for your
patent on the Communism Death
Rav � thev never touch scientists
(did Einstein fight in WWII?)
�Claim you're Rep. John Ander-
son, Republican presidential can-
didate. No one knows who he is.
They'll buy it.
�Claim you're running for mayor
of Farmville � they never touch
�Contract a communicable social
disease � you'll flunk the physical.
�Lie about your age (be 28) � if
the ABC store believes you, maybe
the Army will too.
�Beat them to the ounch, join the
army, and then be kicked out cf
basic training for never washing.
�Say you work for a college
newspaper � the don't take nut
One must be careful not to make
a mistake which could lead not only
to conscription, but also may place
the draftee in a position of immi-
nent physical duress. The correct
guidelines must again be followed:
�Don't say you're a drug addict
the army has room for more.
�Don't go to your physical drunk
� they'll put you on the front line
when you're not looking.
�Don't say that you're wanted for
a capital offense � they love in-
ductees with prior experience.
�Don't try to score with a
general's wife � they'll send you to
�Don't admit that you're a col-
lege student � they'll have you
cleaning bulkheads.
�Don't go in drag � with women
being drafted, they couldn't care

Terps Fight Off Pirates, 85-72

seventh-ranked Maryland fought
off stubborn East Carolina to gain a
85-72 victory last night in a game
that was much closer than the final
;core indicated.

heavily favorites in this contest,
never were able to get into their
vaunted run-and-gun attack.

The biggest surprise of the night,
though, was the offensive perfor-
mance of Terp guard Dutch Morley.
The 6-2 point guard entered the
game with a 3.0 scoring average and
a 42.5 efficiency average from the
field. In this one, though, Morley's
shooting was a key.
The Hyattsville, Md. native con-
nected on seven of nine from the
field and finished with 16 points.
"This was by far Dutch's best of-
fensive performance ever said
Driessell. "He just didn't seem to
It took everything Morley and his
teammates could deal out to turn
back the fiesty Pirates, who,
because of missing their last six free
throws, kept the score from being a
bit more attractive.

The shooting of George Maynor,

with three quick buckets to go ahead

1:47 remaining in the contest.
A questionable charging call on
ECU guard Tony Byles and the
missed free throws prevented the
Pirates from cashing in further and
possibly pulling off a major upset.

With only two home meets re-

Four of the Lady Pirates' losses

number of key performers to

ECU hosts William and Mary Fri-

"William and Mary is tough
says Sultan. "It should go right
down to the wire. They're strong in

While both coaches agreed that
the Indians of William and Mary

that the Lady Pirates could handle
Pfeiffer with minimum difficultv.
"We haven't heard a great deal

When the Lady Pirates of East
Carolina close out there 1979-80
home schedule Saturday at 2 p.m. in
Minges Coliseum with a non-
conference matchup with Western
Carolina University, it will mark the
end of their most watched season
Home attendence has topped the
2,000 barrier twice this season,
which is twice more than the Lady
Pirates have played before such a
gathering in Minges Coliseum.
The largest attendence figure for
a road game this season was 3,207 in
the Field House of national AIAW
champion Old Dominion. Things
didn't go so well for the Lady Bucs
that night, as ODU .handed their
visitors a 112-77 thrashing behind
the birthday performance of AU-
American Inge Nissan and the
board strength of 6-8 Anne
"Old Dominion is Old Domi-
nion maligned ECU coach Cathy
Andruzzi. "What can you say about
them that hasn't already been said?
They're defending national champs
with all their players back and
Their lowest point of the season
would have to be considered the
97-54 bruising at the hands of the
nationally sixth-ranked Gamecocks
of South Carolina.
But East Carolina hasn't always
been on the receiving end of such
scathings; for example, the 106-53
hazing of George Mason Saturday.
Senior Rosie Thompson led the
team in scoring with 23 and reboun-
ding with 10. The Blounts Creek
native had her jersey retired in
ceremonies following the game.
Thompson has led the NCA1AW
in scoring for the past two years,
and her current tally of 18.5 leads
the state again. The total is down
from her 1978-79 record-setting 24.5
mark, but Thompson hasn't been
counted on for the bulk of the scor-
ing as she was a year ago.
Thompson's closest teammate
last season was guard Lydia Roun-
tree with a 13.4 pace.
Rountree still provides 13.4 per
outing, but junior forward Kathy
Riley hits at a 17.5 clip to add offen-
sive depth. Riley, a Nashville, Tenn.
resident, has earned acclaim for her
shooting skills and acrobatics.
Junior Marcia Girven, a three-
year starter at center, slipped off her
point production of a year ago, but
has improved her defense to remain
competitive against taller op-
Sikes brought to the foundling
program a different type of point
play. With three games remaining,
Sikes has dished off a nationally-
ranked 186 assists. She also con-
tributes 9.2 points per outing with
dazzling shots from 18-25 feet.
Reserves have played a vital role
in more contests this season than
last, with freshman Mary Denkler
of Alexandria, Va. notching 27
points on two outings and averaging
7.4 points.
Fellow freshmen Fran Hooks and
Donna Brayboy have shown poten-
tial at guard, while junior transfer
Heidi Owen has exhibited defensive
prowess throughout the year.
"The players' skill level has im-
proved over last year and will con-
tinue to improve from year to
year states Andruzzi. "I would
venture that we're one of the best
breaking teams in our area
Another statistic which shows
vast improvement over 1978-79
totals is attendence. Average at-
tendence at the 29 games of the slate
last season was 429, while thus far
the Pirates have averaged 722.
But the most impressive jump is
in home attendence, where the Lady
Pirates figured at a mere 479 last
year. New figures show a jump to
910 spectators in Minges Coliseum
when the women are in town.
"We're certainly appreciative of
the fans said Andruzzi.
"Attendece has been up, and a lot
of the credit should go to Wayne
(Newnam, director of sports promo-
tion). There's a lot more entusiasm
about Lady Pirate basketball.
"People come out to see Rosie
and Kathy and Lydia score a lot of
points, but they also come to see
Marcia play tough inside against
bigger girls and block their shots.
They come to see a kid like Denkler
come off the bench and score a lot
of points in a little time.
"We've been very pleased this
year with the response of the
students and community to the
changes in the program
The Lady Pirates close out the
slate Monday against William and
Mary in Williamsburg, Va. They
begin action in the NCAIAW tour-
nament Thursday in Chapel Hill
against Appalachian State at 7:30
p.m. in Carmichaci Auditorium.

Games Open Despite Turmoil
N.Y. (AP) � With all
of the pomp and
pageantry that is so
much a part of the
Olympic tradition, the

Nearly 1,300 athletes
who have gathered for
this ice and snow
festival celebrated the
ning of the Games,
parading through horse

meadow on the out-
skirts of this sleep
town which will hold
center staee in the
sports world tor the
next 12 days.
Following the open-
ing ceremonies, the
first sled runs in the
treacherous luge com-
petition were scheduled
for tonight with speed
skating and skiing set
to begin on Thursday.
Hockey got an early
start on the other sports
with six games Mon-
day, including an emo-
tional 2-2 tie for the
young United States
team against Sweden.
Cheered on by their
fans who screamed sup-
port and waved ban-
ners and flags, the
Americans rallied fo

The Americans kept

them off.
Finally in a desperate

U.S. lifted goalie Jim
