Faces Fire,
The old Wahl-Coates School and
the Drama Building are currently
undergoing renovation, and the
workers got a little extra help from a
minor fire in the attic Wednesday
The Greenville Fire Department
responded to the 5:20 p.m. incident
and found a small fire, although a
lot of smoke was coming from the
attic vents.
Fire officials reported that the fire
was started by sparks from welding
or cutting tools used by the workers
in the process of replacing the roof
of the building. Fire units, including
two engines, the Snorkel unit, and a
rescue truck, remained on the scene
approximately one hour.
This is the second fire to occur in
the structure in less than a month.
The first fire, on Feb. 27, caused
minor damage to a first floor
classroom when a pile of rags in a
corner storage cubby caught fire
and burned a section of floor.
Due to the location of the fire,
university police ruled �out the
possibility of arson.
"I don't believe that anyone
wishing to start a fire would bother
to climb up to the attic to do it
said Capt. Earl Wiggins of the
university police.
Workers are completely
renovating McGinnis Auditorium.
According to James J. Lowry,
director of Maintenace and Opera-
tions, they are pitting in a new
stage, new dressing rooms and an
elevator to the auditorium. The new
stage will be four times as large as
the old one. This phase of the
renovation is expected to be com-
pleted around April 1981 at a cost of
approximately SI.9 million.
Hunt: It Is Time
To Tighten Belts
Assistant News Editor
"This country is in the process of
doing something absolutely essential
to survive: to stop the galloping of
inflation and stop it now said
Qov. James B. Hunt, Jr. at a press
conference this morning at the
Ramada Inn in Greenville.
Commenting on the possible loss
of state funds due to cutbacks in
revenue sharing, Hunt said, "I am
not going to nit-pick and throw
stones at policies and programs over
a possible revenue loss. I want
North Carolina to help the nation
bring about a balanced budget,
which is essential. I don't know the
effect of the Carter anti-inflation
proposal with respect to reduced
revenue sharing for the state of
North Carolina. I have no aversion
to tightening the belt. All Americans-
are going to have to tighten the belt
now rather than having inflation
destroy us in the future
In reference to energy, the gover-
nor said, "I am committed to
nuclear power and we should use it.
For how long, I don't know. But the
upmost concern must be registered
with safety. The nuclear plants must
be made safe and that is a prere-
"We should encourage and
develop alternate energy sources, as
opposed to traditional ones such as
coal, oil, gas, and nuclear. Sources
like solar, bio-mass, gasahol and
alcohol fuels, and animal waste pro-
ducts for gas. I think that our
farmers in particular can come close
to becoming energy self-sufficient
with the use opf grain for gasahol
and alcohol, the use of animal waste
for methane, and solar and wind
power Hunt continii. "I am ex-
tremely excited about solar power. I
have seen several solar energy out-
fits and they are extremely in-
teresting and exciting
The governor noted that
agriculture is still the mainstay of
the state. He said efforts are under-
way to increase support for tobacco
programs, and agriculture and
agriculture-related industries are
worth over $10 billion a year to
North Carolina.
Hunt also said the best thing for
this area of the state would be for
Virginia Electric and Power Com-
pany (Vepco) to sell its North
Carolina Holdings to either
Carolina Power and Light (CP&L)
or Duke Power Co.
Later in the day, the governor of-
ficially opened the Pitt County
Hunt re-election headquarters on
the 264 By-Pass. He told about 100
supporters, "A lot of states would
be satisfied with the work we have
done in North Carolina, but I'm not
satisfied. This is North Carolina,
and we can do a lot more if we want
Hunt, a Democrat, is campaign-
ing for re-election, the first gover-
nor to do so in the history of North
Carolina. He is opposed by former
governor Robert Scott, another
Democrat, and Republican state
Senator I. Beverly Lake.

Sadat and Begin Planning Visit
Minister Menachem Begin of Israel
and President Anwar Sadat of
Egypt will visit Washington for
separate talks with President Carter
in April, White House officials an-
nounced today.
White House press secretary Jody
Powell, announcing the new move
in the bogged-down talks over
Palestinian autonomy, said the
dates for the meetings had not been
Powell said the Israeli and Egyp-
tian leaders would visit Washington
"to review the progress and pace of
autonomy negotiations for the West
Bank and Gaza
"The negotiations are being con-
ducted in accordance with the prin-
ciples of the Camp David accord
which the three leaders signed in
September 1978, Powell said.
The agreements reached between
the United States, Israel and Egypt
provided for negotiations to settle
the question of Palestinian
autonomy on the West Bank of the
Jordan River and the Gaza Strip,
Arab territories occupied by Israel
following the 1967 Middle East war.
Israel, Egypt and the United
States have agreed to accelerate the
pace of the negotiations on self-rule
for the 1.2 million Palestinians of
the occupied West Bank of the Jor-
dan River and Gaza Strip. But it ap-
pears doubtful agreement will be
reached by the May 26 deadline
spelled out in the Camp David ac-
Begin said Tuesday the talks were
stalled on three Egyptian demands
that Jerusalem Arabs participate in
Palestinian elections, that the
Palestinian government include
legislative as well as executive
powers, and that Israeli security ar-
rangements be a subject for agree-
ment by the Palestinians.
In 1978, Carter closeted the two
Mideast leaders at Camp David for
13 days until they agreed on two
framework agreements that were
honed into the formal peace treaty
six months later.

historian, Texan, a scholar of con-

ingly not to feel any pressure from
having his performance measured
against that of his predecessor. He
numbers himself among Leo
Jenkins' admirers, and it was, after
all, the growing reputation of ECU
in the national academic community
which attracted Dr. Brewer away
from a prestigious post at Texas
Christian University when Dr.
Jenkins' retirement came due.
Chancellor Brewer's view of the
man he succeeded was expressed
succinctly in an interview published
last year in the ECU Report: "He

ECU Model UN Club
Hosts Security Council
Students from seven colleges and
universities in Pennsylvania,
Virginia and North Carolina are
scheduled to arrive in Greenville to- �
day to attend a model United Na-
tions Security Council conference.
Sponsored by the ECU Model UN
Club, the conference is a mock ver-
sion of the actual United Nations
Security Council. The 20 visiting
students will join the seven par-
ticipating members of the ECU club
in examining international problem
areas and writing resolutions con-
cerning them.
There will be four model Security
Councils, each of which will choose
its own agenda of international pro-
blems to discuss. According to Jill
Vaughn, Secretary-General of the
ECU Model UN Club,the chief
areas of concern will probably be
the Iranian situation, the Soviet in-
vasion of Afghanistan and the
resurgent cold war atmosphere bet-
ween the superpowers.
George Ashworth, Counselor to
the U.S. Arms Control and Disar-
mament Committee based in
Washington, D.C will deliver the
keynote speech of the conference in
room 244 of the Mendenhall Stu-
dent Center on Friday, March 21 at
4:30 p.m. Interested
students,faculty, and members of
the community are welcome,

Hearing Set For Fee Increase Proposals
News Editor
For the first time in the history of
East Carolina University, a major
effort is being made to find out stu-
dent opinion on a set of proposed
increases in the student fees.
At 4:30p.m. in room 244 of
Mendenhall Student Center today,
there will be a special hearing open
to all students for the purpose of
discussing the increases with the
heads of the organizations that are
requesting them.
In addition .professors in all
10:00 Friday classes this week will
read aloud a special questionaire
concerning the raises and record stu-
dent reaction to them.
At present, full-time students at
ECU pay $105 per semester in stu-
dent fees. The proposed additions
would hike the figure to $134, which
is roughly a 25 percent increase.
"This particular time slot was
chosen for the survey because that is
when the greatest number of
students are attending classes said
SGA President Brett Melvin.
The results of the survey will be
tabulated before Sunday, March 24,
when the ECU Board of Trustees
will meet to vote on the proposals.
Vice Chancellor for Student Life
Dr. Elmer Meyer has acted as a
coordinator between the university
sectors which are asking for increas-
ed funding and the SGA officers
who have prepared the survey
"What we are trying to do this
year is open up this process Meyer
said Wednesday.
As a member of the ECU Board
of Trustees, SGA President Melvin
will have an opportunity to vote on
the fee increases. According to him,
he will base his vote on three con-
siderations: the results of the stu-
dent survey, the impressions gained
from the special hearing Thursday,
and the information presented in the
upcoming Board of Trustees
The hearing and the survey will
not determine the approval or rejec-
tion of the fee increases, but will aid
the trustees and administrators in
assessing the overall attitudes to stu-
dent programs.
In comparison to other univer-
sities within the UNC system, fees at
East Carolina remain relatively

small. Of the 15 member schools,
ECU ranks eleventh or lower in the
amount of funding through student
The burden of inflation accounts
for much of the proposed raises, but
some of it is earmarked for expan-
sion and improvement of services.
For instance, the Athletics Dept. re-
quest amounts to roughly 55 percent
above last year's budget, and the
Health Services Dept. request
represents an approximate 42 per-
cent increase over its previous share
of the funds.
The following section presents
some of the details concerning the
fee increase proposals, but it is not a
complete picture of the factors af-
fecting each department making a
request. For those who are in-
terested in these group's funding, it
is important to attend the Thursday
hearing. The head of each depart-
ment is scheduled to be there to
answer questions concerning their
1980-81 budgets.
Health Services
According to a Health Services
Dept. budget projection for the next
three fiscal periods, the infirmary
will continue to operate at a deficit
unless it receives a major funding in-
crease. The department is currently
advertising for a new director who
will carry added responsibilities in
coordinating programs with the
ECU medical school, thus comman-
ding a potentially higher salary than
before. In February, 1980, the infir-
mary handled over 5,000 patient
visits with a staff of four full time
Last increase was in 1972-73.
According to an Athletics Dept.
spokesman, no workable budget for
the 1980-81 season has been com-
pleted. Athletics Director Bill Cain
could not be reached Wednesday to
clarify how the additional funding
would be used.

Owner Of Investment Firm Absentee Ballot: Student Democracy
Puts Blame On Eurodollars
.i a-ACf u;ii;vr-i rtr .
To John Winthrop
Wright, whose invest-
ment firm handles $1
billion of individual
and institutional in-
vestments, the idea of
curing inflation by pro-
moting a recession is
equivalent to

commonly known as
bloodletting, was
thought to be a univer-
sal cure many years ago

recession, thus,
not only weakens the
subsequent recovery
but sets the stage for
the next recession. And
as the patient grows
weaker, the doctors see
no alternative but to let
more blood.
Wright spoke
Wednesday at the an-
nual Symposium on
American Capitalism,
which he sponsors at
Fairfield University, a
short distance from the
Bridgeport, Conn of-
fices of Wright In-
vestors' Service.
As he sees it, the
designers of fiscal and
monetary policy con-
tinually cut the veins of

does not attribute all
blame to them, but he
does believe they are an
obvious and unchecked
monetary problem.
Do not let
"Eurodollar" throw
you; it is really a simple
term. All it means is a
dollar borrowed from a
foreign bank. That bor-
rowed dollar is an lOU
to the bank. It is an
asset. It is a dollar
asset. And when a bank
has an asset it lends it

As we have seen, the
federal Reserve can
limit lending and bor-
rowing in domestic,
banksf but there is no
formal regulation of
those dollars produced
overseas. And. Wright
points out, they now
total $450 billion, or
only $50 billion less
than the domestically
produced total.
Once upon a time,
Wright observed,
anyone wanting U.S.
dollars would buy them
on the foreign exchange
market, creating a de-
mand that would lift
the price and protect us
from imported infla-
tion. If the dollars were
valued higher, for ex-
ample, oil might cost
relatively less.
The dilution of
dollar value is likely to
continue if Eurodollar
production is not slow-
ed, said Wright. If un-
checked, he forecast
the Eurodollar total
will be triple the
domestic dollar supply
in five years.
"There is no way of
stopping the inflation
of dollar prices all over
the world, no way of
stopping the escalation
of Middle East oil
prices payable in
dollars Wright told
his audience.
"No way of avoiding
the ever-rising cost of
energy in the U.S.A.
and the inflation which
inevitably accompanies
it; simply no way of ac-
complishing these basic
objectives without first
recognizing and ac-
ting on the obvious
principle that the
United States must con-
trol the creation of
U.S. dollar credits and
deposits everywhere
Model UN To Meet
Primary Day is ap-
proaching, and for
those ECU students
who are not registered
to vote in Pitt County,
the only way to vote is
by absentee ballot.
Absentee ballots are
surprisingly simple to
obtain. First of all, one
must be registered to
vote. Then the voter
writes his or her home
county board of elec-
tions and requests an
application for an
absentee ballot. Ap-
plications are also
available from the ECU
College Democrats.
The completed ap-
plication must be mail-
ed by April 22, and the
ballot must be received
by the home county
board of elections by 5
p.m. May 5-the day
before the primary.

The FightirT Pirate Ship
gets repair funds from INDVs tune-up clinic
Pirate Ship Needs
Money For Repaii
Records and
The ECU pirate ship,
seen for the last two
years at football games
and in parades, needs
funds to maintain its
authentic appearance.
The 42-foot replica
of a 16th century sail-
ing vessel, built by the
ECU Industrial and
Technical Education
(INDT) Club, is con-
structed on a Mercury
chassis donated by
Smith-Waldrop Motors
and Ford Motor Co.
Garris-Evans Lumber
Co. donated $400
worth of lumber, and
Atlantic Rope Co.
donated the rope for
the rigging. Since the
ship was completed,
donations from the
community and INDT
students have been used
to refurbish the ship.
Since most of the
ship's structural pro-
blems are due to ex-
posure to the weather,
INDT plans to build an
enclosed shelter to pro-
tect the ship. The club
also hopes to add can-
nons and another mast
to the ship.
One source of funds
for the ship is INDT's
Tune-Up Clinic.
Students in the
organization will tune
up any car for i0 and
customers must supply
the parts.
There will be a sign-
up sheet in the front
hall of the ground floor
of Flanagan Building
for per ns interested
in the clinic. On Mon-
days, Tuesdays and
Thursdays, from 3
p.m. to 5 p.m club
members will work on
cars at approximately
one every half hour.
"About 900 hours of
work went into the con-
struction of the ship
said Paul Waldrop, ad-
visor to the INDT
Club, "and we've had a
great response from the
student body. We ran it
in the Homecoming
parade last year and
won the show, and this
year we participated
but couldn't compete.
We hope to get about
$2,000 to $3,000 in our
current fund-raising
drive so we can get it
looking great

students participate in some type of
intramural recreation. The increase
in this program is to maintain and
improve intramural activities.
Last increase in 1975-76
Mendenhall Center
The $3.25 per semester increase
will cover the rising cost of
maintenance, adjust staff salaries
for inflation, and help to purchase
new curtains for the entire building.
The present curtains are old and
energy-inefficient, and� replacicing
them could cost as much as $19,000.
Leakage problems are also adding
to maintenance.
First increase.
Student Union
Student Union programs will ac-
tually only receive half of the $1.50
per semester increase requested. The
other half will be used by
Mendenhall-sponsored activities,
according to Charles Sune, Major
Attractions chairman in the S.U.
First increase.
SGA Fund
This money is used largely to fund
official student organizations and to
support the activities of student
government. The increase amounts
to $.50 per semester and is requested
to cover increased operating costs.
Last increase in 1972-73.
SGA Transit
Higher insurance and servicing
costs are part of the reasoning
behind the $1.00 per semester fee in-
crease. The transit system is also
planning improvements in bus ser-
vice and equipment.
� � �
Not all student fee-funded
organizations are asking for in-
creases. Student Fund Accounting,
which handles student loans and
bookkeeping matters, has made no
request. The category listed as Other
Debt Services fees in the graph is for
finance servicing (interest charges,
bonds, etc.), and will remain the
same in the 1980-81 fiscal period.
Chancellor Brewer
Goes His Own Way
Continued from Page 1
the Brewer era is underway. It will
surely be a different era, not only
because no two men bring identical
viewpoints, philosophies and
methods to the same set of respon-
sibilities, but more because the
1980's will not be the same as the
1960s and 1970's. New generations
of young people have come to col-
lege age since East Carolina College
became East Carolina University.
The new ECU chancellor is, of
course, intimately familiar with
those factors of his profession, and
is attentive to the future they por-
tend. He works out of an office
which occupies most of one end of
the Spilman Administrative
Building; the office could be
mistaken for a spacious living room
with contemporary decor. He is a
large, heavyset man with a
generous, open face and a habit of
never talking down to his visitors.
He shows the friendly directness for
which Texans are supposed to be
famous, but there is little of the
Texas twang in his speech.
Chancellor Brewer is a widely
published scholar in American
business history, particularly
transportation history, and has serv-
ed as editor or co-editor of several
books. Railroad history buffs will
envy him his position as general
editor- of the Railroads of America
series of books of which five
volumes have been published by the
MacMillan Company, with others in
the works. With a colleague, he
works in his present spare time on
one of the series,a history of the
Missouri-Pacific Railroad Com-
He shares with former Chancellor
Jenkins an advocacy of strong inter-
collegiate athletics. The athletic pro-
gram at ECU which grew apace with
the academic programs during the
Jenkins administration enjoys the
full Brewer blessing and commit-
ment. He sees no necessary conflict
whatever between the fielding of
competitive athletic teams and the
carrying on of strong and deman-
ding academic disciplines.

No To Increases
Several student leaders met with
Chancellor Thomas Brewer this past
Monday on proposed student fee in-
creases for ECU students, which are
due to go into effect in the fall. Dr.
Brewer and Vice Chancellor for Stu-
dent Life Elmer Meyer fielded ques-
tions from students from a wide
range of campus life, and found
that most dissent in the group
resulted from rate increases in the
areas of athletics and health ser-
In the areas of athletics, students
questioned the wisdom of spending
money on a program which had
already received an increase in the
allotment of student fees this year.
The spending of extra money on
athletics differs sharply from the ex-
penditure for certain programs
(such as Student Union) which have
never gotten a fee increase. Clearly,
the priorities are set: there are cer-
tain areas on campus which receive
greater emphasis than do others.
We are all for the expenditure of
money to build a sound and suc-
cessful athletic program, and we
feel that students should contribute
something to the effort. We do not
feel, however, that student fees
should rise year after year.
Think of it. The transit system
has financial difficulties, the Stu-
dent Union has never received a fee
increase since its inception, and yet
athletics seems to be the one pro-
gram that never has any trouble get-
ting full funding, year after year.
We feel that with the current in-
flation rate skyrocketing the way it
is, and the fact that President Carter
has asked us all to limit spending, it
is ill-advised to increase spending in
the athletic department.
We would propose, then, that the
athletic department make plans to
budget their funds so that even if
student fee increases are needed in
the years ahead, these increases can
be held to a minimum. It would be
easy for runaway inflation to
necessitate a large hike in fees every
year, so one choice might be to limit
the already large athletic budget to a
certain small increase per year.
Another choice might be to rely
more heavily on outside sources,
such as independent alumni giving
to athletics, or other sources such as
the Pirates Club. Some fundraising
would have to be done, but with the
ever-increasing number of active
alumni, we feel that it is possible.
Student Health Services
Another huge chunk of the pro-
posed student fee hikes will go to
maintain and upgrade Student
Health Services, i.e. the infirmary.
We can see the need of upgrading
service at the infirmary, but at least
part of the monies requested will go
for such things as automobile
maintenance, advertising, and the
payment of utilities.
Automobile maintenance should
not be paid for out of student fees,
period. There should be some sort
of state allotment for this purpose.
We think, then, that the state
government should be approached
about remedying this situation,
perhaps through action taken at the
next session of the General
In terms of advertising, it was
reported that this will cover the ex-
pense off the printing of a brochure.
We feel that this is unnecessary,
because any information on the in-
firmary that anyone wants can be
found in existing publications.
Also, the members of the infirmary
staff are very cooperative in giving
out information over the phone.
Utilities are the biggest gripe.
Vepco, which some have accused of
having some of the highest electric
rates in the free world, supplies the
infirmary with electrical power. We
are against the use of student fees
for the payment of these exorbitant
rates, and we feel the general fund
of the university should pay for it.
Today, during the morning
classes, a survey form will be hand-
ed to you. You are asked to fill it
out and return it to your professor,
so that Melvin will have informa-
tion which he can present to the
Board of Trustees next week, who
will ultimately decide whether or
not the increases will go into effect.
Also, there will be a meeting this
afternoon at 4:30 in room 244 of the
Mendenhall Student Center.
Representatives from each depart-
ment requesting fee increases will be
on hand to explain why they need
the increases they say they do.
Make your voice heard on this
issue. If enough voices are heard,
then there is a greater chance that
your student fees will not climb as
much, as fast.
U. S. Priorities Need Examination
National News Bureau
There is a lot to be shocked about in the
newspapers, what with prisoners blow-
torching one another and Muhammed Ali
learning for the first time that black South
Africans don't like the U.S. very well.
But what really caught my eye lately was
the news that 44 of the residents of the
state I live in thinks oil is worth going to
war over. That's a little like having half of
Paris ready to do combat for perfume.
Incredible, silly and funny if it weren't so
frightening. Last summer, I lived in the
East at the height of the gas shortage. It was
as though everyone but me was in on a col-
lective practical joke. People were waiting
in lines for gas for over an hour with their
engines running and their air conditioners
on. Instead of parking their cars and walk-
ing a few yards into the bank lobby, they
snaked through a tortuous, 45-minute line
to do transactions at the drive-in window
with their engines running and their air con-
ditioners on.
r-Letters To The Editor
Amazing, this penchant for sitting on
one's butt in a culture where health spas
and diet aids do a land office business.
Perhaps I am out of step with the rest of
America, but a car has always seemed to me
only a conveyance � much like a bus, a
train, one's feet or one's bike � to get from
point A to point B. Confining at best, frigid
in winter, sizzling in summer and reeking
always of stale tobacco and take-out food.
Driving just for recreation seems peculiar
to me. Maybe that's because every Sunday
afternoon of my adolescence my father
gathered the family � every protesting but
the eagerly slobbering bulldog � into the
Chevy and lead-footed it some 40 miles to
the Red Rock Dam. Before it even became a
dam, he drove us to the future site of the
Red Rock Dam. It was, we all agreed, a
dam site too far. I also had on two occa-
sions the distinction of being with a boy
who was ticketed for making excessive muf-
fler noise while scooping the loop. Same
boy both times. You'd think one of us
would have learned.
It seems I am missing some crucial point.
I have a friend � a highly intelligent,
civilized friend � who speaks of his 280Z
with a solicitude absent from his oioe when
he speaks of his infant daughter. I'm begin-
ning to think James Baldwin was on targe:
in one of his novels when he described a
Harlem Saturday night ritual: men clears
ing the hoods of their cars as tenderly a
they would cleanse their own foreskins.
Whatever the passions that tie people to
their autos, the love affair has become self-
destructive. Free flowing gas is not our bir-
thright. Federal energy officials are whistl-
ing in the dark about coal, gasohol and
solar energy. Wonderful ideas certainly, but
unlikely to satiate our gluttony for cheap.
available energy in the immediate future.
There comes a time when even the most
devoted lover has to face the facts. The best
way to avoid holocaust over an absurd issue
is to recognize our lust for gasoline asthe
unrequited passion it's bound to remain.
SGA President Solicits Students Help
To the Editor:
On Tuesday, March 25, 1980 there will
oe a Board of Trustees meeting. The main
topic of business at this meeting will be
the proposed student fee increase. Tomor-
row morning (Friday, March 21) during
the 10:00 class period, your professor has
been asked to assist in the taking of a
survey so that I might better represent the
views and opinions of the entire student
body on this issue.
It is hoped that as many students as
possible will have the opportunity to par-
ticipate in this survey. This year we the
students at ECU face the largest fee in-
crease that I can remember, a total stu-
dent fee increase of $58.00. This money is
to be divided up between Athletics, In-
tramurals, the SGA, the Student Union,
Mendenhall Student Center, and Student
Health Services. There are numerous
reasons for the requested fee increase,
with the high rate of inflation and cost of
energy as the primary reasons.
This afternoon at 4:30 in room 244 of
MSC you will have the opportunity to
listen to representatives from each depart-
ment explain their reasoning for the
necessity of a fee increase, and to ask
them questions pertaining to this increase.
Your attendance will be welcomed as it
will assist me in the way that I present
your views to the Board of Trustees. Your
participation in tomorrow's survey is also
needed to assist me in my final decision in
the Board meeting.
The survey and question-answer period
were made possible through the assistance
of numerous individuals. Their
assistance, and yours, is greatly ap-
preciated in this matter.

Student Bodv President
Afghanistan May
American Closet
Fear of unfavorable comparison with the
Soviet Union is the real reason the United
States government is pushing for a boycott
of the Moscow Olympics.
The pretext offered to justify a boycott
would fall apart if any reporter allowed into
the presence of Jimmy Carter would have
the guts to ask Carter to swear that the U.S.
was nor organizing forays into Afghanistan
from Pakistan prior to 1980, and if Carter
would be asked to swear that the CIA had
never had liason with Afghanistan's
General Amin, who was assassinated in
December 1979. The anti-communist Amin
had killed the leader of Afghanistan only
three months earlier, and was then in turn
killed by his own people. Amin never issued
a plea for world help against a Soviet
"invasion" because he was already out of
power before that "invasion" took place.
Soviet troops were called into Afghanistan
by the government of Afghanistan under
terms of the Afghan-Soviet treaty of
December 5, 1978, and helped Afghanistan
resist the mounting pressure from
U.Scquipped raiding forces which have
been dispatched out of dictator Zia's
Pakistan for the past two years (the U.S.
also makes itself an enemy of Pakistan's
people by arming and propping up Zia, the
brute who traitoriously overthrew, jailed,
and eventually murdered the Pakistani's
democratically elected and loved president,
Ali Bhutto). In any case, the U.S. certainly
can have no objection to one country sen-
ding military assistance to another, having
imposed 540,000 U.S. troops on Vietnam,
having changed puppet governments in
Saigon mmt than a dozen tiroes during the
U.Ss long Vietnam occupation, and hav-
ing napalmed daily the resisting population
as witnessed on our television screens. Jim-
my Carter sees nothing wrong with main-
taining 50,000 U.S. troops in South Korea
to this day. His protestations reek with
In Korea, Guatemala, the Congo, Viet-
nam, the Dominican Republic, and Cam-
bodia, massive physical battle by the local
citizenry against the entering U.S. soldiers
was horribly plain to see; but all the many
reporters in Afghanistan, including
numerous American camera crews at the
turn of the year, have not been able to even
catch glimpse of such battle against Soviet
soldiers because there is no such battle, or-
dinary Afghanistanis evidently being pleas-
ed by the riddance of Amin, by the opening
of the prisons, by the return to programs
redistributing property and wealth, and by
the new security against Pakistan-based
As to the real motives for the boycott ef-
fort: the American Olympic athletes as a
team would again lose, and probably would
not even take second place. But much more
important, U.S. leaders fear what will
follow if they allow great numbers of
Americans � particularly young Americans
� to see, with their own eyes, an alternative
social system that by contrast is working.
Personal witness of the constantly rising
standard of living of the Soviet Union is
dangerous to the U.S. power structure at a
time when the American standard of living
is collapsed to a level lower than in 1968,
and is dangerous to that power structure
when the American people are getting
poorer each and every year (poorer because
almost no-one's paper-dollar income is in-
creasing as fast as prices).
How would U.S. leaders explain to
shocked Olympic tourists and participants
the high-rise apartment buildings popping
up like mushrooms all around Moscow and
the movement of 11 million Russians into
brand new homes in 1979, while U.S. hous-
ing starts fell from 2 million in 1978 to 1.4
million in 1979? How would they explain
why rent in the USSR, including all utilities,
cost no-one more than 5 percent of monthly
income; why a ride on the giant and expan-
ding Moscow subway costs the same 5
kopecs as in 1935; why a loaf of bread costs
the same 10 kopecs as in 1948; why medical
care, dental care, and university education
are all free; why four times as many
engineers graduate from Soviet universities
each year as from American universities;
why retirement with full economic security
and dignity is at age 60 for men and 55for
women, while Americans can no longer af-
ford to retire even at age 70; why paid year-
ly vacations for Soviet workers are lengthier
than those for American workers; why
Aeroflot is the largest airline in the world,
with the lowest passenger fares in the world;
why the USSR consumer price index
decreases from year to year while wages
alone go up; why Soviet youth are healthier
and involve themselves more in sports than
their American counterparts; whv fewer
Russians than Americans are forcibly con-
fined in prisons and mental institutions;
why Soviet steel and oil and wheat produc-
tion already surpasses that of the U.S why
zero unemployment and a labor shortage
allow every Soviet worker to select from
among many always-available jobs; and
why slums in the USSR would have to be
looked for with a magnifying glass! �
A disproportionately large percentage of
U.S. Olympic competitors are black and
poor: when they return from Moscow to
American reality, to the decay, poverty,
and hopelessness of American cities, how
are you going to keep them from talking to
the neighbors and the press? If the entire
portrait of the Soviet Union proves to be a
lie, how are you going to keep most
Americans, who learn of a different Russia,
from wondering what other fairy tales their
heads have been Filled with? Having
become aware of alternative economic
possibilities, how are you going to convince
them to contain their rage as the new
depression deepens and as oil companies,
war companies, and other high thieves grab
ever-increasing super-profits and attach str-
ings to ever-increasing numbers of politi-
Far safer to keep the kids and the tourists
home, even if you have to threaten to
revoke their passports if they dare try to go
see Russia for themselves! Far safer to pro-
tect and preserve intact the cartoon image
of the Soviet Union so carefully
disseminated by the American information
media � the media totally owned by and
totally controlled by comfortable
capitalists. Capitalist economies are going
through a much-needed tear-up for war;
the last thing capitalists now want is
Olympic-scale direct meeting and com-
munication between American human be-
ings and Russian human beings, demystify-
ing "The Enemy" (the looming and in-
human and ominous image of The Enemy
thrives on ignorance; the mass get-together
at Moscow will dispel ignorance; altering
the image of Russia and Russians in die
minds of many Americans, turning many
away from preconceived animosity; hence
war psychology will become difficult to
propagate, war taxes will become difficult
to collect, and war-industry profits will
become difficult to justify � especially in
hard times).
Moves by the U.S. to sabotage the
Twenty-Second Olympiad and to limit
Soviet-American contact got diligently
under way in 1974 � the year Moscow was
awarded the games over U.S. objection �
and these moves have since become more
and more blatant. Doing its part, Pan Am,
the U.Ss only airline regularly carrying
passengers into the Soviet Union,
unilaterally cancelled and ended all its
flights to fhe USSR just before the onset of
heavy Olympics-preparatory traffic, on Oc-
tober 29, 1978.
To go or not to go to Moscow:
Afghanistan, when facts are looked at, pro-
vides no reason whatever to put up bar-
ricades. The reverse: does our planet need
still more separation of peoples and still
more tension? What BETTER time than
right now for youth from varying
backgrounds to get together to pursue
challenges all have in common and in pro-
cess to grow toward appreciation and
tolerance of one another? � precisely the
Olympic ideal, that the powers in the U.S.
so abhor.
A judge should seek out the full story
from both sides before rendering a
righteous judgement. Isn't each of us sup-
posed to be a judge? Who is trying to pre-
vent us from seeing the evidence? The pro-
spect of our exposure to first-hand informa-
tion at Moscow worries and frightens some,
lest our judgement not come down on the
side of capitalism and war. Too bud. WhOe
we stiil have some freedom of
boycott, no way!

USSR Eyes Nicaragua
Copy Editor
For all those optimists who think
Soviet expansionism is nothing to worry
about, cast a glance southward to the
little Central American country that was
recently a hotbed of revolution:
Nicaragua. Leaders of the Sandinista
Liberation Front are meeting with
Kremlin leaders in Moscow to discuss
"economic and cultural cooperation
Deposed Nicaraguan President
Anastasio Somoza and his family were
placed in power and supplied with arms
by the United States to protect
American business interests, a situation
similar to the U.S. role in Iran. Both
countries have since deposed their
tyrant rulers anJ are trying to install
governments that will be able to rebuild
their nations. In monetary terms the
situation in Nicaragua is less important
than our oil fix in the Middle East, but
it is more important to the national
security of the United States.
Nicaraguan leaders describe the talks
which began Tuesday as "friendly and
cordial Tass, the official Soviet news
agency, said, "The Soviet side wished
the people of Nicaragua further success
in the implementation of political and
socio-economic transformations under
the leadership of the Sandanista Na-
tional Liberation Front Put simply,
the Soviets are trying to sell war-
ravaged Nicaragua on communism, an
alternative could be easy for that coun-
try to accept.
In many parts of Middle America and
especially in Nicaragua, Fidel Castro is
considered a hero. Many Nicaraguans
discard the fact that there is no real
freedom or individualism in Cuba. In-
stead they see few people starving and
substantial education and health care,
things that most Nicaraguans have
never had under Somoza. That country
may well decide to forego the luxuries
of freedom and democracy for the
necessities of food, clothing, housing,
education and health care.
And who could blame them? Not the
United States, who helped put them
their present predicament. As standard
rule, U.S. administrations overlooked
the atrocities of Somoza and the ex-
shah to avoid rocking the little U.S.
boats. But the citizens of those coun-
tries finally overthrew their tyrant rulers
in attempts to establish governments
capable of helping those nations.
Whether or not they will be successful
remains to be seen, but the United
States will be the last one asked for
The United States has burned too
many bridges behind it, and the Soviets
are rebuilding those bridges as quickly
as possible. We gave Russia an open

fered massive aid to Nicaragua (and
Afghanistan and Iran) when they need-

is unlikely he would do so even tacitly to I
The Soviets would like nothing better
than to gain another sympathetic
satellite in Middle America, especially
Nicaragua. Remember: Nicaragua was
the second choice to Panama for a
water Toute across the isthmus. A
navigable river extends more than
halfway across Nicaragua, but the
technology was not available to com-
plete the canal at that time. Should the
Nicaraguans consider a second canal in
Central America, the Soviets might con-
sider it a good investment. But that's
another story.
The United States must meet the
Soviet challenge not only by strengthen-
ing the armed forces but by using com-
mon sense in realizing possible threats
before they surface. A major step in
that direction would be to treat the peo-
ple of other countries as we would

around blindly at the whims of big j
businesses and nearsighted politicians.

Students Question College Requirements
Assistant Features Editor
Today is the second day of hear-
ings on possible changes in ECU
general college requirements, and
Pirate students are not short on
ideas for those changes.
Malcolm Nunn, a freshman from
Clarksville, Va voiced the peren-
nial ECU complaint: "Foreign
language is unnecessary. 1 just don t
see when I'll need it
Irdie Williams, an ECU student
from Fort Bragg, said, "All the re-
quired courses I'm taking now are
fine with me. I like it just the way it
is. I don't want to take any foreign
language though. I took it in high
school, and it's just too technical.
You just learn enough to say 'hello
and 'goodbye' and beyond that, you
just don't know anything else
Sandy Jackson, a Parks and
Recreation major from Mount
Olive, gave foreign language
another nay. "I think they ought to
dump it. There are very intelligent
people in other curricula that
shouldn't have to study something
they're not going to use. Some good
students have probably failed or
dropped out of school because of
Edith Fekete, a sophomore
biology major from Richmond,
Virginia, does not agree. "I think
there should be foreign language re-
quirements for all majors. It's in the
news now about how Americans
don't know much foreign language,
and this is a detriment to us.
"The purpose of the general col-
lege requirement is to make us well-
rounded people, and foreign
language can always help us in the
future, in our careers
Sophomore Mike Watkins of
Elizabethtown agrees. "Language
leads to a better understanding of
other peoples, and no matter who
you are, that's helpful in today's
One accounting major had a more
specific complaint. "They ought to
make the social science requirement
12 instead of 13 hours. You have to
take five courses instead of just four
because almost all of the courses are
three credit hours
"I'd like to see more required
science courses and less required
humanities said Michael
Kirkland, an ECU biology major.
"For a serious science student there
are some required courses that are
not as important as others. I'm 24
and about to graduate, and it seems
silly to me that I still have to take
p'E. before I can get out.
"Some general college re-
quirements should be more standar-
dized. There's too much difference
in the instructors of those courses
Sophomore Tammy Harrell said,
"The art and music appreciation
courses are boring. You just
memorize everything. Only one
course like that should be enough
"I think they ought to require a
little more math said freshman
David Ward. "You get algebra in
high school, and if you're going to
have to take the same thing here,

Different Light Shed On Greek Week

Fraternities at their very best can
be splendid organizations, full of
deep devotion and respect for
brothers, and providing ties that are
not just profound during the college
experience, but for the entirety of
one's life.
They can be powerful organiza-
tions that provide social, personal,
and academic growth, though I
sometimes doubt the validity of that
last proposal. It can be a productive
time when one learns to benefit
from his own capabilities and to
work cooperatively with individuals
from diverse conceptions of the
world and familial backgrounds.
At their very worst, fraternities
can be a virtual breeding ground for
the worst aspects of human
responses � teaching one to hate,
envy, and possess a dispassionate
lack of respect for another while
maintaining the bond of
brotherhood. Houses can become
virtual dens of decadence with all
sorts of sordid sexual escapades and
so-called fraternity boy pranks such
as taking sorority girls to the Flappa
Trappa beach, which is sticking the
poor girl's head in the John. (Hear
the ocean roar?)
It can also be a time when one
learns to utilize the most devious
characteristics of his personality and
to use an organization and in-
dividuals for his personal needs. It

can be the training ground for cor
porate bosses and senators.
The most serious mistake that an
individual not associated with the
Greek system can make is to
stereotype Greeks and make gross
generalizations about what con-
stitutes a "frat rat The key is that
Greek organizations are composed
of individuals, and that the same
fallacies which beset fraternal
organizations consistenly occur in
almost every type of organization.
Some of the finest individuals I
have ever met and some of the most
worthwhile endeavors I have taken
part in happened to me when I was
involved with the fraternity system
right here on campus. Then again,
some of the biggest assholes and
some of the most disgusting acts I
have ever witnessed supposedly
educated individuals partake in oc-
curred at some sort of co-Greek ac-
Spring semester is a really big
time for Greeks, with all sorts of
outdoor and indoor activities such
as Greek Week (next week), Hell
Week (for pledges � as if every
week weren't), the blood drive, ban-
quets, charitable drives, and last but
certainly not least, INITIATION. It
is really the best time to be involved
with Greeks, for almost everything
that is big fun for the Greeks is held
during this time and there are a
lot of wild fantasies in the minds of
non-Greeks about what goes on at
these various events.
I though it would be fun if I could
shed a little light on what goes on at
these events for the unacquainted,
while poking a little fun (harmless, I
hope) at the idiosyncrasies involved
with such.
The week begins at Pi Kappa Phi
Field Day on Hooker Road, and this
is spirited fun between fraternities
and sororities involving the same
old things that were made popular
at your elementary school, such as
egg-throwing, pie eating contest,
three legged race, and Mr. and Ms.
Beautiful. Most people start drink-
ing about sunrise and continue until
the sun is sinking gingerly into the
Everybody gets to show off their
Easter tan and the winner of the col-
lection of events gets points toward
the best whatever on campus.
Usually the most fun event is The
See Who We Can Throw In The
Lake Contest, which usually ends
up a draw after 50 percent of the
people get thrown in, and a smaller
few have their own amateur boxing
contest. It is a day without com-
parison, at least until next Saturday.
Tuesday is really the most athletic
event of the week when the Greeks
hold their annual Greek games, held
at the track field at ECU, in which
everyone participates in the more
traditional track and field events.
Everybody gets real sweaty, and if
you wanna see people sweat that
you never thought could, then this is
your day. And no beer is consumed,
dispelling all ideas that Greeks can't
collect without a keg.
If you want to see what is hip in
the spring fashion collection, then
show up at the IFC banquet, which
is perhaps the most dynamic
assemblage of undergraduates that
is held on this campus, other than a
sporting event. All of the awards,
such as Scholarship Awards, Best

presented at this banquet. Everyone

and features the most non-reek
participation, which certainly will
be true this year because they are
featuring Brice Street, N.Cs most
copied band. The highlight of this
event is some inspired mid-day
drinking, usually resulting in some
inspired midday gatoring and even-
tually a few more amateur bouts. To
close the day out, the revelers are
greeted on their way home by seem-

I bet millions of you out there are
wondering what Hell Week and In-

foresake all fraternal vows (which
will probably result in my excom-

There usually is such BS as the old
grape in the doody-hole trick, or
seeing how much beer you can drink
as in Lampoon. It usually involves a
little cleaning up of the old house
and some high spirited hi-jinks.
Every once in a while some delirious
nut goes overboard and makes you
do some silly thing like doing sit-up
on an orange or grabbing bananas
out of the John.

lege students, who in earlier
presidential skirmishes in the cam-
paign have hinted they're becoming
le�s apathetic about politics, turned
out in huge numbers in the recent
New Hampshire primary.
While an astonishing 55 percent
of the 12,000 eligible students voted,
their choices suggest that the tur-
nout reflects concern about foreign
policy rather than anti-draft or anti-
nuclear feelings that some can-
didates tried to exploit.
Republican students in the four
major college voting sectors in the
state barely favored George Bush
over Ronald Reagan and John
Anderson. Bush received 31 percent
of the college Republican vote,
while Reagan captured 27 percent
and Anderson 26 percent.
The remainder of the Republican
1 pack trailed far behind. Sen.
I Howard Baker was closest, with 12
I percent of the campus vote.
I On the Democratic side, the col-
I cge vote defied most predictions
I that the issue of draft registration
I would turn eampuses against Presi-
dent Jimmy Carter.
Both Sen. Edward Kennedy and
Gov. Edmund Brown criss-crossed
the state's campuses emphasizing
their opposition to President
Carter's proposal to begin draf
registration for all 18-20 year olds.
Brown also stressed his long-time
opposition to nuclear power in a
state in which the student anti-
nuclear movement is one of the
most vigorous in the country.
Students didn't respond. Kennedy
and Brown did better on campuses
than they did in other areas in the
state, but President Carter still took
48 percent of the student vote.
Kennedy came in second among
the student Democrats, with 35 per-
cent. Brown attracted 16 percent of
the vote, which was much better
than the campus support he received
in the Iowa caucuses in Januarv
The Iowa student turnout had
been also surprisingly heavy. Stu-
dent Republicans endorsed Bush,
with Reagan and Anderson coming
in second and third, respectively.
Democrats gave Carter close to a 2-1
lead over Kennedy, Brown was ex-
pected to do better on campuses,
but his last-minute request that his
supporters remain uncommitted
made an exact measure of his
popularity difficult.
In New Hampshire, Brown spent
the last week of the campaign
repeatedly referring to his anti-
nuclear stance. New Hampshire, of
course, is the stie of the controver-
sial Seabrook nuclear plant.
Similarly, Kennedy devoted much
of the final two weeks of the race to
campus visits, during which he call-
ed for a two-year moratorium on
nuclear plant construction. He also
repeatedly reminded student au-
diences of his opposition to draft
Bush and Anderson's Hanover
visits elicited the most excitement
amont all the repeated candidate
visits. While Bush won at Dart-
mouth, which is generally con-
sidered one of the nation's most
conservative large campuses,
Anderson did better (35 percent)
there than in other college precincts.
Reagan could only manage seven
percent of the Dartmouth vote.
Among the campuses, Reagan
was most popular at Plymouth State
College, where he took 62 percent of
the vote. He also won at New
England College, with 46 percent.
President Carter did best at New
England, too, taking 63 percent of
the student vote. He captured 53
percent of the Dartmouth vote. His
42 percent at the University of New
Hampshire was good enough to
win, but only barely against Ken-
nedy's 38 percent. It was Kennedy's
best campus performance in New

Pirate Coaching Staff On The Road Recruiting
Dave Odom
� Now Wat his first season is finish-
ed and a success, ECU head basket-
ball coach Dave Odom has set his
sights strictly on recruiting.
Though the Pirates finished
16-11, Odom must hit the recruiting
road hard due to the losses of five
seniors who contributed heavily to
the first winning season at ECU
since 1975.
Gone will be the top three scorers
in George Maynor, Herb Gray and
Herb Krusen in addition to top
reserves Kyle Powers and Frank
Hobson. "They will leave quite a
void Odom has said on many oc-
Quality replacements are hard to
come by for a school that must
recruit in the shadow of the Atlantic
Coast Conference, but Odom and,
his staff refuse to be intimidated.
Already on the Pirate bandwagen
for next season is 6-2 guard Qwan

and a graduate of Fayettville
Seventy-First High School.
Roseboro signed with the Gators
when John Lotz was the head
coach, but transfered after experien-
cing dissatisfaction with the pro-
Roseboro is called by Odom as
possibly the best athlete of all the
Pirates, including the five retiring
seniors. His leaping ability is un-
canny, as is his versatility as he can
play either the point or shooting
guard positions.
Beyond Roseboro, things are at
the guessing stage. There are several
top notch recruits that the Pirate
staff feels they have a chance at.
The number one priority for the
staff is the acquisition of a big man.
Charles Pittman, a 6-9 junior col-
lege prospect in California, would
fit the bill to a tee. Pittman a five-
star rating on a scale of five by one
well-known scouting agency and
could almost single-handidly assure
the Pirates of a successful 1980-81
The drawback is that many top
schools, including Maryland, want
Pittman's services. One advantage
for the Pirates lies in the fact that
the big guy's mother lives in North
Carolina and reportedly would like
her son to play close to home. It is
this that the Pirates base their hopes
of pulling of the recruiting coup.
Another big guy Odom and Co.
are eyeing is 6-9 Anthony Teachey
of Goldsboro. A super talent,
Teachey is being sought by several
ACC and SEC schools. Rumor has
it that the 6-9 phenom would prefer
to play in the ACC, but the ECU
staff has other plans.
Supposedly already a shoe-in
signee is 6-8 Jeff Best from C.B.
Aycock High School.
Another apparent future Pirate is
6-0 point guard Herbert Gilchrist
from West Harnett H.S. Called a
"Super person as well as player" by
one member of the Pirate staff,
Gilchrist has recently named to the
3-A All-East first team by The
Raleigh News and Observor .
The Pirates are also in hot pursuit
of a couple of forwards in Harold
Thompson of Raeford and Cecil Ex-
xum of Goldsboro. Thompson was
listed before this past season as one
of the top 50 players in the country
by The ACC Handbook and was
being courted heavily by N.C. State
before Norm Sloan's defection to
Exxum has the top player on
Southern Wayne's 4-A state cham-
pionship squad. Exxum has been in
the shadow of Teachey for some
time in the battle for the top player
in Goldsboro, but may actually be
� the better prospect. Both are blue-
Odom stated after the season
finale with Milwaukee-Wisconsin
that his major concern was
recruiting a player to fill Maynor's
spot at the shooting guard position.
Dean Shaffer of Fork Union (Va.)
Military Academy would do just
The only problem is that many
schools feel the same way. Old
Dominion and North Carolina are
two of tne other schools that Shaf-
fer is considering.
Shaffer, son of ex-Tar Heel star
Lee Shaffer, said recently that his
decision was still up in the air and
that he would visit ODU and UNC
among others before deciding. He
has already been to Greenville.
So there you have it, some of the
outstanding prospects that Odom
and his staff are spending their time
on. The signing of even half of
them would be a super boost

The two wrestlers representing the
Bucs were Butch Revils (177-pound
a eight class) and heavyweight D.T.
loyner. The two advanced to the
Nationals by winning their respec-
weight classes at the NCAA
hast Regional.
Both wrestlers were not up to par
tor the tournament, according to
Pirate Head Coach Ed Steers. Revils
had been nursing a bad ankle which
inhibited his conditioning prior to
the Nationals. Joyner, on the other
hand, had been wrestling with strep
throat or the flu weeks before the

ed. "He conditions harder than

Revils, seeded twelfth in the Na-
tionals, lost to Ben Hill of Ten-
nessee 11-10 in the first round.
Revils was ahead in the match by
four points when he injured his ribs.
"He couldn't protect himself
(fr m the injry) Steers said. "He
was fortunate to finish the match
Hill eventually went on to become
an All-American.
Joyner, seeded eighth in the tour-
nament, took on Don Wagner of
Kent State. Wagner weighed in at
280 pounds on his 6-6 frame, com-
pared to Joyner's 6-1, 235 build.
Wagner jumped ahead 3-0 in the
match, but Joyner fought hard and
prevailed 6-3.
"He (Joyner) did a great job
said an impressed Steers.
Joyner advanced into the next
round to wrestle Mike Evans of
LSU. Evans eventually won 4-3,
scoring two points on a duck-under
takedown with twenty seconds left
in the match.
"On a different day, I think D.T.
could've beaten him badly Steers
said. "But he had to pace himself to
keep from getting tired (due to the
illness). Consequently, that kept the
score close and in the end he lost
Steers said Revils was eligible to
wrestle in the consolation matches
(wrestlebacks), but the rib injury
wouldn't allow him.
Joyner was ineligible for the
wrestlebacks because Evans did not
advance in the tournament after
defeating him, according to Steers.
Revils finished the season ranked
ninth in the nation in the 177-pound
weight class. He compiled an
outstanding 37-4 record.
Joyner, 36-3, ended the season as
the seventh nationally-ranked
As for the Pirate season as a
whole, Steers said, "We got a good
effort from some spunky guys. We
won a couple of tournaments that I
felt were significant. We had quite a
few individual wins. And we were
third in the Eastern Region.
"It was a fairly successful year
he said.
The Pirates ended the season with
an 8-6-1 mark.
As for next year, Steers claimed,

Assistant Sports Editor
It has often been used as an excuse that the score did
not indicate the outcome of the match, but the state-
ment can especially be used in reference to the East
Carolina 9-0 loss yesterday at the hands of perrenial
ACC power N.C. State.
With the fact that through the first five singles mat-
ches the Pirates managed only 17 games, it could easily
be considered a walk-over. But the young ECU netters
fought to the final point of each match.
Senior Kenny Love dropped the his first flight match
to Andy Andrews 6-4, 6-1. In other singles action,
sophomore Keith Zengel fell to Matt McDonald 6-3,
6-1; senior Henry Hostetler lost to Scott Fleming 6-3,
6-0; freshman Ted Lepper was downed by Andy
Wilkison (brother of touring professional Tim Wilkison
of Shelby) 6-1, 6-1; Mark Byrd was aced by Tim
Downey 6-1, 6-2; and sophomore Norm Bryant faught
hard but lost to Brad Smith 6-4, 6-4.
"I think we played fairly well said ECU coach Jon
Rose. "I think we're going to be all right this year.
"The competition within the team to get in the top six
spots has been hectic. We held an intrasquad round-
robin and the results of that basically determined that
In doubles, the team of Love and Hostetler fought off
a talented Wolf pack duo of Andrews and McDonald,
but fell 6-4, 6-2 in what was one of the most evenly
grouped matches of the afternoon.
The second flight pair of Zengel and Lepper proved
little challenge as they were disposed of 6-3, 6-0 by the
NCSU team of Fleming and Wilkison. Downey and
Smith captured the final event of the afternoon with a
6-4, 6-4 rally over Bryant and Barry Parker.
"It's going to be a tough two weeks for us coming
up explained veteran N.C. State coach J.W.
Isenhour. "We have North Carolina coming up Satur-

look ahead.
"I'm glad that wasn't the case, though. The matches
were much tougher than the scores indicate
Isenhour, himself a top player in North Carolina
mens rankings and considered one of the best collegiate
coaches in the nation, added that regular number three

Mass NCAA Recruiting Scandal Upcoming?
Bv l). ALAN
NCAA long Range
Planning Committee
"Mr. Williams
predicted 'a monstrous
scandal' (will occur)
within the next five
years in college basket-
hall, citing 'heavy
cheating' in such areas
as falsifying
transcripts, use of
agents and recruiting
abuses by coaches and
alumni the possibili-
ty of a major basketball
scandal may be more
imminent than long-
range. "

mittee Minutes
June 18-19, 1979
Prophetic words, too
photic as events
Alv proved. Did I
or the other committee
nbers have special
inside information?
Wore we jaware of in-
vestigations underway?
No. We were just alert,
informed persons
harged with looking at
he long-range trends in
jollege athletics.
For us. the signs were
everywhere we looked
spring: increasing
dia attention to high
school basketball
recruits; prospects
ivhose transcripts ap-
ieared to leave them in-
eligible at one Division
I school turning up
sewhere with the re-
site credits and
ide-point average;
schools scrambling for
ids to combat
calating costs and
covering that basket-
bail had unexpected
jw revenue sources;
allege coaches return-
ig from high school
all-star games telling
oi r ADs that the
games had become
"obscene a "flesh
market" where agents
wore literally peddling
their clients; faculty
members watching a
state high school tour-
ament and observing
colelge coaches careful-
moves so that they
�just happened to
bump" into prospects
and their parents.
The rumors of
unethical conduct by
individual coaches,
players, alumni and
boosters were familiar;
the accelerating pace of
the charges and viola-
tions was the real cause
for our concern.
However, what really
concerned us was an
awareness about the
degree and per-
vasiveness to which
some institutions
themselves were involv-
ed admitting
students with the barest
of academic achieve-
ment in high school,
jnrelated to what is re-
quired and expected at
hat college; accepting
third-party transcripts,
often from an assistant
coach; guaranteeing
coaches a number of
admissions slots out-
side the regular admis-
sions procedure; hiring
"winning coaches"
from other schools at
salaries far out of pro-
portion to faculty, ad-
ministrators and
prevailing coaches'
salaries (total packages
of $150,000 per year
are not uncommon this
year) and then giving
them a "make us a win-
ner" mandate, or hir-
ing coaches, assistant
coaches and even
academic advisors who
have had a history of
getting institutions on
Above all else, we are
concerned about the
number of institutions
that have made inter-
collegiate athletics an
instrument of institu-
tional policy for achiev-
ing "instant recogni-
tion" by making it in
the "big time" (i.e
Division I). Basketball
is the intercollegiate
sport in which this
quick success, recogni-
tion and financial
bonanza of television
and NCAA basketball
tournament revenues is
most possible. Unfor-
tunately, that very-
potential for success
makes college basket-
ball the sport most
susceptible to corrup-
Committee members
see recurring patterns
and student profiles
which portend trouble,
patterns that go back at
least as far as the
basketball scandals of
the 1950s that ended in
gambling and point-
shaving. Among these
�Squads which have
a high number of
students from outside
the traditional area
from which students
come to that college; a
high percentage of
marginal, high-risk
students, and a number
of transfer students.
�Admission of
students outside the
regular admissions pro-
cess in which profes
sionals predict
students' chances for'
academic success. The;
expectation that
marginal students who
need to devote their full
attention to the
classroom to survive
academically can withs-
tand both athletic and
academic pressures is a
fallacy that has led
straight to academic
cheating, chicanery or
the total disregard for
the athlete as a student.
�Real athletic control
and responsibility not
being lodged with the
president or chief ex-
ecutive officer but with
an outside group or
even directly with the
college board of
�Coaches who are
hired and report out-
side regular institu-
tional channels (i.e
separate athletic
associations) or who
receive a major portion
of their salaries from
�The hiring of
coaches, assistant
coaches and athletic
directors who previous-
ly have been involved in
serious and repeated
violations of NCAA
rules and standards of
ethical conduct.
Throughout our
deliberations ran a con-
cern for the reassertion
of institutional control
of intercollegiate
athletics. That, of
:ourse, is easier said
:han done, for at least
two compelling
First, at the Division
1 level, intercollegiate
athletics has been
treated like the un-
wanted child left on the
doorstep of academia
� to be tolerated, not
accepted; to be
separately funded,
separately ad-
ministered. The com-
monwealth of Virginia
puts it very succinctly
by classifying inter-
collegiate athletics as
an auxiliary enterprise.
Second, it is not only
in athletics that colleges
and universities are
beset with the loss of
institutional control.
Witness the onslaught
of state and federal
legislation, state boards
of higher education,
court decisions, ac-
crediting agencies, the
scramble for research
funds and the utiliza-
tion of education as an
agency of social
In the popular mind,
institutional control
means control from the
president's office, an
end to autonomy of
athletic departments. It
is unlikely that
presidents, beset as
they are by a myriad of
problems, can or
should control the day-
to-day operations of
athletic departments to
any greater extent than
for any other part of
the college. What they
need and should seek is
accountability for the
program and its con-
It is here that com-
mittee members believe
that faculty athletic
representatives and the
faculty members of the
athletic advisory board
or committee should
play a vital role in
asserting institutional
In most Division 1 in-
stitutions, the faculty
representative is the
president's represen-
tative. The committee
foresees the faculty
athletic representative
becoming an increas-
ingly important person
in providing the presi-
dent with objective and
relatively disinterested
advice and evaluation
of the program. To that
end, the committee is
recommending to the
Council the develop-
ment of a manual or
handbook for faculty
athletic representatives.
Nothing was more
distressing to faculty
members than an
awareness, now sadly
borne out in fact, that
the sanctity of the
transcript, the very
heart of academic in-
tegrity, had been
breached. There is
nothing that needs to
be undertaken more
rapidly than for institu-
tions to take security
measures to confirm
the validity of the
transcript. That this is
not a matter related
primarily to athletics
should be obvious. It is
central to the whole
educational process.
In the same manner,
the wholesale fabrica-
tion of extension
courses, grades and
enrollments is only the
tip of a scandal far
broader than athletics.
The coaches and
athletic academic ad
visors did not inven
these courses; the
discovered them. It i;
part of teacher cer
tification � the nearb
universal requiremen
that teachers take addi
tional hours for reten
tion or advancement t

business. The sad part
is that most of these
courses cannot be used
for regular degree
credit on the home
campus, but they can
be converted into ac-
ceptable courses at
another institution.
Athletics has exposed
the problem. The
NCAA and the con-

quickly to restrict

Don t Mix Booze And Sports
AP Special Correspondent
Booze and baseball
� mix 'em and weep.
That's the sermon
big Don Newcombe is
carrying to the ears of
every major league
player willing to listen
in a baseball-sponsored
tour of all the training
camps in Florida,
Arizona and Califor-
"Not just baseball �
booze and any kind of
business don't mix

former pitcher of the
old Dodgers, both
Brooklyn and Los
Angeles variety.
"Nobody knows that
better than I do
The 6-foot-4,
240-pound onetime Cy
Young winner is like a
evangelist as he moves
from one site to
another preaching the
evils of Demon Rum
and other spirits.
"I was a wild one in
my day he recalls.
"Some people are
sophisticated drinkers.
Some just sit and soak
up the stuff. Others get
belligerent. Me? I was
just a damn drunkard.
"I never wanted to
go home after a
ballgame. I wanted to
go some place and live
it up. I was a happy-go-
lucky, free-wheeling
drunk. I was heavy on
both booze and broads.
"It shortened my
career. It bankrupted
me in business. Worst
of all, it almost broke
up my home. My mar-
riage at one time hung
by a very slender
thread. I am lucky my
whole life wasn't ruin-
Newcombe managed
to right himself before
tragedy struck and, as a
result, became one of
the most militant
spokesmen against
alcohol abuse in
baseball or any other
At the baseball
winter meetings in
Hawaii in 1977 he made
a presentation to team
physicians. Dr. Frank
Jobe, renowned or-
thopedic surgeon of
Los Angeles, was so
impressed that he per-
suaded the Dodgers to
set up an Alcoholic
Rehabilitation Pro-
gram. Assistance was
provided by the Union
Oil Co.
News of the good
work achieved in the
Dodgers' program
reached the office of
Commissioner Bowie
Kuhn in New York.
Kuhn named
Newcombe a consul-
tant to work with Leslie
C. Gray, a staff
member of the Na-
tional Institute on
Alcohol Abuse and
Alcoholism in
Washington, D.C.
Newcombe and Gray
made their first tour of
the spring training
camps two years ago,
appearing before 25 of
the 26 clubs.
Only the New York
Yankees were missed.
"Billy Martin didn't
want us to appear
Newcombe said.
The pair gave its
message to the world
champion Pittsburgh
Pirates in Bradenton,
Fla Monday and clos-
ed the Florida portion
of the tour in the camp
of the Boston Red Sox
today in Winter Haven.
Then it's off to the
West where this time
they may find little ob-
jection from the sub-
dued Martin, new
manager of the
Oakland A's. Billy an-
nounced to the world
last week that he is off
the juice for a month.
"This will be good
for my health said
The crusade is
already reaping
dividends. Bob Welch,
one of the Dodgers im-
pressive young pit-
chers, took a treatment
over the winter in
Arizona. A couple of
weeks ago Newcombe
was asked to rescue a
former pitcher who had
locked himself in a
room and was reported
"drinking himself to
Newcombe, director
of community relations
for the Dodgers, recall-
ed how excessive drink-
ing had fumed a
brilliant career into
disarray back in the lat-
ter days of the "Boys

"I was Rookie of the
Year with a 17-8 record
in 1949 he said.
"Then I won 17, 19 and
20 games in succession
before going into
military service. "My
first full season after
that, in 1955 I was 20-5
and in 1956 I was 27-7,
named the National
League's Most
Valuable Player and
winner of the Cy
Young Award.
"In four years I was
virtually on Skid Row.
I won only seven games
in 1958. I was traded to
Cincinnati. I was
through with baseball
at age 33. I operated a
successful cocktail
lounge in Newark but I
almost lost my wife and
three kids.
