Bus Drivers Will Decide A ction A fter Meet
News Editor
A spokesman for the SGA bus
drivers said Monday that the drivers
are waiting to see what happens in a
special transit meeting scheduled for
today before deciding on taking any
action concerning SGA President
C harlie Sherrod's appointment of
Panny O'Connor to the position of
Transit Administrative manager.
Last Wednesday, the drivers
notified The East Carolinian that
the) were unanimously opposed to
the appointment of any
'unqualified person" to the job and
that they felt O'Connor was not the
best choice.
There are two management posi-
tions within the transit system �
operations manager and ad-
ministrative manager � each of
whom earn $112.50 per month, in
addition to wages paid them for
their share of driving the buses.
Sherrod defended his appoint-
ment of O'Connor, saying that he
had "good managerial skills and
that the SGA president should ap-
point someone with whom he feels
comfortable. The spokesman for
the drivers said they felt the position
should be given to someone from
within the ranks of the transit
Sherrod also said Monday that he
thought he was being as fair as he
could be in his decisions, and noted
that in the past, incoming SGA
presidents have usually dismissed
many more cabinet employees than
he has.
The drivers now concede that the
threatened strike was an "excited"
and "emotional" response to the
news that an outsider would take
over Abshire's job, but that the
possibility of some kind of action
was not yet ruled out.
Leonard Fleming, who is ex-
pected to continue in his job as the
operations manager of the transit
system, said he has tried to get the
drivers to cooperate with the new
management proposal.
At the root of the conflict lies the
question whether or not the transit
managers should earn their posi-
tions by rising through the ranks or
be appointed to them.
"In any business, upward mobili-
ty is the strongest incentive for peo-
ple to work hard said Fleming,
who added that his greatest concern
was to "prevent disharmony"
within the transit system, although
he sympathized with the drivers'
view of the matter.
Sherrod also said he sympathizes
with the drivers, but added that his
decision to appoint O'Connor
would stand.
'The drivers have a legitimate
concern. It just shows that thev were
worried about the future of the han-
sit system. We have a lot of good
people and the future looks good
Sherrod said Monday.
The bus drivers disagree. Driver
Freddie Simons said that
O'Connor's appointment was "not
in the best interest of the transit
system, and it's very disheartening.
If you don't know the routes, the
system, the ins and outs of
everything, then you can't compare
driving a school bus six or seven
Sherrod has set up a special
meeting of the people involved in
transit to discuss plans for the
future. He said that the meeting
scheduled for 5:00 todav would give
everyone a chance to air their
Anti-Nuke Rally
Draws Thousands
30,000 Anti-nuclear Activists
came to Washington to protest
Staff Writer
It happened on an ugly cold and
rainy Saturday. On April 26th ap-
proximately 30,000 anti-nuclear ac-
tivists from across the nation
pilgrammaged to Washington, D.C.
to protest nuclear power and the
proliferation of nuclear weapons.
The agenda included speakers of
diverse ideologies who emphasized
their commitment to a 'holistic'
anti-nuclear movement. Some
notable personalities were: Barry
Commoner (noted environmentalist
and solar activist and presidential
candidate running for office on the
Citizens' Party ticket); Helen
Caldicott (an Australian pediatri-
cian and president of the Physicians
for Social Responsibility); Dave
Make-Up Day Attendance Low
Assistant News Editor
Clas attendance of less than 50
percent was the rule rather than the
exception on Saturday's make-up
Professors and students reported
an average attendance of approx-
imately 45 percent. It ranged from
no students to almost 80 percent of
total enrollment.
Some professors used the day to
catc p on class work, but many
said they did not require attendance,
and would simply be there if
students wished to come, but few
did. A few instructors simply chose
not to hold classes at all.
"Having those make-up days was
like throwing a rare steak at a
vegitanan commented SGA Presi-
dent Charlie Sherrod on the atten-
The make-up was scheduled after
the university was closed March 3
and 4 in the wake of the worst
snowstorm to hit the Greenville area
in over 50 years.
Making up the days are necessary
in order for the university to main-
tain its accreditation, according to
Di. Robert H. Maier, vice
chancellor for academic affairs.
The make-up for Tuesday, March
4, is today, previously scheduled to
be reading day.
Students and faculty members
alike have expressed discontent with
the program to make up the snow
days. At its April 8 meeting, the Stu-
dent Government Association pass-
ed a resolution opposing the make-
up plan.
"I understand why we had to do
it (make up the days), but I think it's
a gross violation of the students'
rights to have to make them up this
close to examssaid one irate stu-
dent. "If we had to make them up,
why couldn't we have done it earlier
in the term?"
"I believe that any benefit gained
by picking up one clas day will be
negated by the loss of study time
caused by the lack of a reading
day said one student. "I have an
exam Wednesday morning and
classes most of Tuesday. I don't see
how I am going to have enough time
to study for it
One student, though, defendec
the administration's action.
"I feel that we were obligated to
make them up he said. "Some
professors were stiff about them,
but some were cool � saying that
attendance was not mandatory,
thereby pleasing both the ad-
ministration and the students
Dellinger (anti-war and social ac-
tivist and editor of Seven Days
Magazine); Terri Clark (a lesbian-
feminist active in the D.C. area);
Jane Horvath (member of the Stu-
dent Coalition Against Nukes Na-
tionwide); and Pat Smith (a
housewife and anti-nuclear activist
from the Three Mile Island area.)
The demonstration began at the
Capitol building, where an orderly
crowd composed primarily of
students assembled to hear speeches
and music.
At last report 150 anti-nuclear
demonstrators were arrested for at-
tempting to blockade the pentagon.
Pat Smith told the crowd, "All
the stuff you've heard about people
selling their homes, animal birth
defects, and sickness � it's all true.
Nothing matters any more until we
get rid of nuclear power. Please
keep up with the news and. when you
hear that TM1 will reopen, come to
Harrisburg for the largest display of
civil disobedience this country has
ever seen
According to the Kudzu Alliance,
an anti-nuclear group in Chapel
Hill, N.C it will cost S100 million
to replace the mangled core at TMI;
more than 100 million gallons ot
contaminated water and an
equivalent amount of gases must be
dealt with; the radioactive water
alone will take at least four years
and $400 million to completely
decontaminate; and the folks living
near TMI are "frantic
More than 1 million gallons of
radioactive water and an equivalent
amount of contaminated gases must
be dealt with. The radioactive water
alone will take at least four years
and $400 million to completelv
decontaminate with hopefully, no
leakages occuring during this time.
The solution being offered now to
get rid of the contaminated gases is
to simply release them into the at-
mosphere. Needless to say the folk-
living near TMI are frantic.

Noted Pacifist To Speak
This Week In Greenville
Igal Roodenko, noted pacifist
and past chairman of the War
Resisters' League, will speak in
Greenville this weekend.
Roodenko, who served 20 months
in a federal prison during World
War II for refusing to serve in the
military, will speak on Pacifism and
the Draft at the Methodist Student
Center Sunday, May 4 at 8 p.m.
He was arrested on numerous oc-
caisions for anti-war and civil rights

North Carolina "road gang" in
1947 for his part in the first CORE
"freedom ride" through the South.
Roodenko has been a member of
the War Resisters' League's Ex-
ecutive Committee since 1947, serv-
ing ten years as its vice chairman
and four years as its chairman. He
has toured the world extensively,
visiting hundreds of college cam-
puses in the United States and
Canada in the last ten years.
Roodenko will be in Greenville
May 3-5. His visit is sponsored by
the Greenville Peace Committee and
the War Resisters' League. For
more information, call Edith Web-
ber, 758-4906.
controversial Yale sex-for-grades
case was re-opened last week when
Federal District Court in New York
heard testimony in an appeal of the
July, 1979 decision that exonerated
Pamela Price and five Yale
undergraduates sued the university
in 1977, charging it had violated
federal anti-sex discrimination laws
by failing to have a grievance pro-
cedure for students' sexual harass-
ment complaints.
Price, now a law student at the
University of California-Berkeley,
claimed Raymond Duvall, a
political science professor now at
the University of Minnesota, had
offered her an "A" in exchange for
sex. She says she refused, and got a
"C in the course. Duvall denied
having made any advances.
Last July a federal court ruled
that while Yale's grievance pro-
cedure was "ad hoc and inade-
quate there was not enough
evidence to support Duvall had ac-
tually propositioned Price.
In the appeal, filed on behalf of
all five female students, the
women's attorney argued that the
decision should be reconsidered
because the court had not heard the
harassment complaints of all the
women. Lawyer Nadine Taub said
the complaints cumulatively in-
dicate a pattern of harassment at
Taub, who practices for the
Rutgers Women's Rights Litigation
Clinic, would not guess when the
appeal decision might be given.
"I think it's fair to say that the
panel (of three court judges) was
quite interested she observes. "It
appeared that the basic questions in
the case were unclear in their minds,
and they were concerned about the
question of when an institution has
to be responsible for its own ac-
William Doyle, a private attorney
retained by Yale, expects the July
ruling will be sustained.
"The first time around they prov-
ed that Price was a liar Doyle
says. "And besides, there has
always been a grievance procedure
at the university. Thev just didn't
like it
Taub argues there is a griebance
board, "but the board has no

Trend Shifts In
BEOG Grants
ECU students gather to hear Walter Fauntroy, a non-voting congressman from Washington, D.C.
who came to Greenville to speak on behalf of Sen. Edward Kennedy, candidate for president in
1980. Fauntroy spoke to students between classes Monday morning before flying to Wilson, N.C.
to continue his campaign efforts.
D.C. (CPS) � Fewer
low-income and more
middle-income students
are applying for Basic
Educational Oppor-
tunity Grants (BEOG),
and the College Board,
in a study, attributes
the trend to govern-
ment anti-fraud cam-
paigns that inadver-
tantly eliminate eligible
students from financial
aid programs.
The study found that
only 31 percent of the
freshmen from families
earning v less than
$15,000 per year have
applied for financial
aid, compared with 41
percent three years ago.
For the first time in
history, students from
families earning more
than $15,000 accounted
for a majority of
BEOG applications this
school year.
Lawrence Gladieux,
the College Board's
research director, says
there's "no doubt"
that the government's
more elaborate aid ap-
plication procedures,
established in 1978 to
help prevent fraud,
have reduced the
number of low-income
students who get aid.
Under the new pro-
cedures, apparently-
contradictory answers
on the long incomt
verification forms are'
grounds for rejecting
aid applications.

This Newspaper's Opinion
It's over. The magic and the
laughter and the memories and the
broken computers and the politics
and all the insanity is over. The East
Carolinian is dead.
Don't get me wrong. The newspaper
will be here this summer, and next
year, and for the forseeable future.
Don't get confused by the us of the
word "me" either. This editorial is
being written by Marc Barnes,
editor-in-chief, and since it is the
last edition of the newspaper, it is
fitting that I come out in the open,
to at least say goodbye. Therefore, 1
will not use the editorialist's stand-
bye, "we I realize that I am
breaking some rules, but this
newspaper breaks rules at times,
and I feel that I am entitled.
I said in the opening paragraph
that the paper had died. Perhaps
this is a premature judgement, but I
feel, nonetheless, that it is an ac-
curate one. The magic (the relation-
ships between the staff members in
a given school year) is what has
died. Never again will the same
combination of people put together
this newspaper again.
CBS correspondent Dan Rather
said in his book The Camera Never
Blinks, that study of law is a jealous
mistress, and that journalism is just
as jealous, but keeps longer hours.
We can attest to that, as our final
deadline is 5:30 a.m. We have to
have the completed version of The
East Carolinian at the printers, 80
miles away, at 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday
and Thursday mornings. The whole
staff here has seen the sun rise and
the sun set on the newspaper office.
Those were the headaches, as classes
go on whether or not you have been
up all night.
We haven't been up here every
Tuesday and Thursday until the we
hours of the morning, but we have
seen our share. I would like to
publicly thank my professors, and
each professor who teaches East
Carolinian staff members, for their
patience with newspaper reporters
who snore during class.
I feel that we have achieved some
level of success during this school
year, and I am willing to take some
of the credit for it. The larger
measure of credit for w. we are
and what we have become belongs
to the staff. I worked, but I didrv't
do a tenth part of the total output of
the paper. Therefore, I feel that I
should thank certain staff members
for their help.
In news, we have gotten sterling
service out of Terry Gray and Larry
Zicherman. Those guys have really
busted their behinds this past
semester, and they got "Most Im-
proved Department" award. It was
right that they should get it, because
they raised the level and quality of
the news section this year.
In features, Debbie Hotaling
Karen Wendt, Bob Albanese, and
Beau Hays deserve mention. Arts
and music have been covered well,
and movies have enjoyed great suc-
cess because of their efforts.
In sports, Charlie Chandler and
Jimmy DuPree have done good.
They comejn. do their work quietly
and leaverusutffyftlsfhlow or

unfair. The sports desk was voted
the best department at the
newspaper this year.
In the editorial page department I
would like to thank cartoonists
John Weylar and David Norris, col-
umnists Charlie Griffin and Pat
Minges, and editorial writers Linda
Allred, Richard Green, and Terry
Gray. Also, a note of thanks to my
assistant, Cheryl Holder.
In production, I would like to
thank with humble gratitude, Linda
Allred, who has developed a
peculiar relationship with the Com-
pugraphic Trendsetter. Linda and
the CG are still on speaking terms I
think. Thanks also to Alison Bartel,
Mark Mueller and Anita Lancaster.
On the advertising side, I would
like to thank Robert Swaim, Terry
Herndon and Paul Lincke. In
business, kudos go to Chris Lichok.
I would also like to thank my
predecessors, for the groundwork
that they laid for us. Thanks to peo-
ple like Doog White, Jim Elliot,
Kim Devins, and Cindy Broome,
the campus newspaper thrived
through some lean and hungry
years. These people held it together
for us, and we are most ap-
The person that I most want to
thank I haven't mentioned yet.
Richard Green came into this
newspaper as an assistant features
editor, and he rose through the
ranks to managing editor. Next
year, he will be the editor-in-chief. I
certainly wish him the best of luck
in his new endeavors, and I pledge
that I will be happy to help him
anyway I can. He will be a good
editor, and he will practice fairness.
I would also like to thank the
Media Board for all their help and
support. I had to do some mighty
fast dancing in a few of those
meetings to some of their questions,
but it was enjoyable and fun.
If there is such a thing as a guru in
this business, Ira Baker of the jour-
nalism faculty would have to
qualify as mine. John Warren has
also helped me with guidance and
encouragement. Several
newspapermen have helped en-
courage me. Among them are Harry
Hollingsworth, Mike Rouse, and
Bob Roule of the Durham Morning ;
Herald; Ashley Futrell of the
Washington Daily News; Tom
Boney of the Alamance News;
William Shires of the ECU News
Bureau; and Claude Sitton of the
Raleigh News and Observer.

i-Letters To The Editor
Bus Drivers Air Their Side
To the Editor:
We are writing to give the bus
drivers' point of view on Charlie Sher-
rod's replacement of Chubby Abshire
with Danny O'Connor.
First of all we do not approve Chub-
by's being fired in the first place. He
would have resigned after the first ses-
sion of summer school anyway.
Secondly, we are disturbed over his be-
ing replaced with Danny O'Connor.
Mr. O'Connor says he drove a bus in
high school which is all well and good.
However, he has no experience what-
soever with East Carolina's Transit
System. If Mr. O'Connor is so in-
terested in being assistant transit
manager then why didn't he start as a
driver and work his way up? In the
past, appointments have been made
based on the applicant's interest,
capability and experience within the
transit system. Mr. O'Connor doesn't
meet any of these requirements, but he
is a friend of Charlie Sherrod's.
A friendship appointment in the
regular cabinet isn't so bad, it just
costs the students his salary. A friend-
ship appointment as transit manager
will cost the students their buses.
Danny O'Connor doesn't have the
experience nor the qualifications to be
Assistant Transit Manager. The transit
system is just now getting straightened
out from unqualified management in
the past, but it looks like it's going to
happen again. Some of us are friends
of Danny's, but to support his appoint-
ment would undercut everything we've
worked for all year.
We, the bus drivers of ECU, are
looking out for the best interests of the
students by striving to provide an effi-
cient transit system. When it comes to
the appointment of key positions such
as transit managers, political games
and friendships should have no bearing
on the decision. We feel that what we
are doing is right and hope that the
students will stand behind us. After all,
if you don't, we all may be walking
next year.

To the Editor:
In response to Richard Morgan's let-
ter of April 24 ("TOTO Was Not The
Right Choice For ECU Students"), I

To bgin, the Major Attractions
Committee selects groups based on at
least 5 criteria:
1. Availability (This would include a
group's willingness to play at ECU.
2. Cost andor afordability.
3. Popularity based on a random

sales, and
5. Popularity based on national
record charts and on local radio
The criteria used for group selection
has not changed since my initial in-
volvement with the Major Attractions
Committee some 3 years ago. The same
procedure used to select sell-out con-
certs like Styx, Pablo Cruise, Firefall,
and Outlaws-Molly Hatchet was used
in selecting Toto. We had every reason

Morgan's concert selection approach
of "supply and demand" is ineredabiy
simplistic and probably would end in
the satisfaction of only one individual -
The difficulties experienced in con-
cert selection are complicated to say
the least. It requires much more than a
superficial- accessment of "supply and
demand but rather, it requires some
knowledge of concerts and research.
The single worst problem is the small
sze of Minges Coliseum � a problem
that we have no control over and one
that appears to be with us for the
foreseeable future.
I believe the failure of the Toto con-
cert may rest with the late date in the
sememster. Students are simplv too
busy with final exam to attend a con-
cert. Unfortunately, the Toto tour
began only one night before the ECU
date and would have been impossible
to schedule any earlier. Il nothing else,
we now know that scheduling concerts
past April 1st is a mistake.

student input; however, Morgan's let-
ter offers no constructive assistance.

To the Editor:
Eloquent argumentation is a thing to
admire � I admire it for its own sake
whether or not I agree with the point of
view expressed. Clear articulation of
both sides of an issue can be enlighten-
ing to partisans of either position and
speeds resolution of the issue.
But I equally despise the shabby
argument, especially the shabby argu-
ment coupled with bankrupt ideas.
Such as it is with Stephen Wohl's essay
in the March 20 edition of The East
Carolinian entitled "Skeletons From
Afghanistan May Be In American
While Wohl's essay appeared just
over a month ago, its outrageousness
still demands response. And I'm
delighted to allot myself the task � it
requires iittle intellectual exertion, due
in part, probably, to the amount of in-
tellectual exertion expended on it in the
first place.
It is the vogue now to give credence
to all ideas in the academic marketplac
no matter how often discredited or
how badly articulated. The notion that
some ideas are better than others seems
to have no place in the academic world,
and Wohl's essay is an example of the
indescretion of the East Carolinian's
article selection policy. The liberal
argument is usually sophistical, com-
plex, and circular to the point of absur-
dity; but Wohl appears to be a liberal
spokesman whose arguments are as
simplistic as they are devoid of intellec-
tual content.
Wohl presents an intriguing
hypothesis in the wake of President
Carter's Olympic boycott decision. For
those of you who fortunately missed it
the first time around, here's the gist:
"Fear of unfavorable comparison
with the Soviet Union is the real reason
the United State government is
pushing for a boycott of the Moscow

First, he disregards standard infor-
mation considered apodictic bv liber.
and conservatives alike. Second. Wohl
apparentlv knows little of the pro-
paedeutics of politics so necessarv to
serious discussion, and third, the non-
sequiturs sprinkled throughout his
piece would make a high school com-
position teacher blush. Wohl succeeds
only in making the liberal establish-
ment at :ast CArohna look foolish,
something that apparentlv isn't hard to
But more important thafn the ro�s
inaccuracies m e essas aivd Oa�i af-

demonstrates that extent to which
liberalism has run out of control at
East CArohna and other major unver-
sities. That such a vacuous piece ot
writing can be published in a student
newspaper in the first place and then

an indication of the sad state of conser-
vatism at ECU as well as the publishing
standards of its newspaper.

neither as political analysis nor as
social commentary. It would be abhor-
rent to me to give it a modicum of
legitimacy by refusing it and thereby
attach some importance to it that
would not otherwise hasve existed. It
seems that the essay served an eristic
purpose, drawing atention to the
author by th espousal of an outrageous
position. I'm led to believe this fellow
is nothing more than a luft-mensch. a
quality shared by most persons of
liberal persuasion.
These persons desperately need a
conversion to conservatism, but it will
be a difficult process because of the
liberal's natural reluctance to face
reality. But it will also be an enjoyable
task for me as a senior at East Carolina
next year as I attempt to perform a
maieutic function for the liberal com-
munity and articulate a political alter-
native for those students disgrundled
with the posturings of the dominant
liberal elite.
That elite represents the kind of
knee-jerk libralism that heeds no ra-
tional argumentation, that heeds no
common sense. But these are the per-
sons that most need ideological clens-
ing, that need the shock treatment of

"It's about damn time com-
mented one anxious LeRoux fan
who had just waited through an
hour of 10th Avenue and several
minutes of stage preparation. At
about 11 p.m stage lights dimmed
and six figures stepped out of the
backstage room and took their
The Attic was packed throughout
with Bud-drinking, ready-to-cut-
loose students and Greenville locals
who had come out to hear Capitol
recording artists Louisiana LeRoux.
They didn't particularly care about
hearing an opening act. It wasn't
that 10th Avenue was boring, it's
just that the people wanted to hear
one band only, and the steady line
from 9 p.m. until 11 p.m. outside
the Attic entrance proved that.
Making their way fromt he west
to the east, LeRoux played in Blow-
ing Rock and Raleigh before coming
to Greenville. The Greenville crowd
proved to be an enthusiastic crowd
cheering and clapping through all of
the first two cuts of the perfor-
mance. The third song, "Feel It"
from their second album "Keep the
Fire Burning combined the pure
energy of Leon S. Medica on bass
with lead singer Jeff Pollard's over-
whelming lead.
Providing clean back-up,

tributed to the musical precision this
band demonstrated throughout all
of their Thursday night perfor-

Lion look-a-like, bass player, pro-
vides a strong base for this efferves-
cent band and has led the band into
success with his production of both
of LeRoux's albums. The
Louisiana-based band's upcoming
album will be produced by someone
outside of the band.
Placing their hit song "New
Orleans Ladies" stategically 23
through the performance, the crowd
immediately intensified their hand-
clapping and joined in on the
choruses. Bobby Campo not only
displayed his bongo-playing skills,
but also played the flute on this par-
ticular cut and others during the
night. Rod Roddy added his clavinet
playing talents to this song, making
it one of the most enjoyable cuts of
the evening.
Interviewing jazz pieces with
mellow rock and roll songs, LeRoux
remained in control of the audinece
until the end of their performance,
their second encore. Setting the pace
of keyed enthusiasm, drummer
David Peters and guitarist Tony
Haselden complete this band of
pure, fresh talent. LeRoux proves
its uniqueness by combining jazz,
rock and roll, blues and cajun music
into one overwhelming aura of
talent that captivates all kinds of
Thursday night was an evening of
easy pleasure � Louisiana LeRoux
did all of the work and we, the au-
dience, reaped the profits of a group
consisting of six musicians who the
audience at the Attic that night
hopes will be back real soon.
Following the performance, Rod
Roddy, keyboard, and Jeff Pollard,
lead singer and guitarist, discussed
their start in the "Business" and
their plans for th future.
LeRoux's new album will be com-
ing out in July but accoridng to Jeff
Pollard, "We haven't decided the
name of the album yet. We're still

The group is working towards a
goal on their upcoming album of
straight rock and roll. Pollard ex-
plained, "It will include a lot of
elements our old albums hada lot
of harmony. Since the first albums
were basically laid back and funky,
we felt a real need to put out an
album that was as straightforward
and direct as we were on stage.

Low Attendance At Rally Blamed On Weather
Sews Analysis
Staff Writer
A recent article in this paper
stated that there is a conflict bet-
ween the anti-draft and anti-nuclear
networks in this nation. The writer
seemed to think that there is a battle
for support of the individuals con-
cerned about the future growth of
this country and world, and nothing
could be further from the truth.
Throughout the nation, various
political factions are uniting to pro-
test against conditions that seem
deleterious to the positive growth of
this nation.
There is a common enemy �
those who are willing to exploit the
country and people of the United
States for corporate profits or
political advancement. The anti-
draftanti-nuclear coalition is a
gathering storm composed of in-
dividuals who have held the same
positions for nearly two decades as
opposed to the politicians who drift
as the winds of circumstance dic-
tate. Group affiliations and
organizational commitments are
becoming blurred in a manner that
would prove quite startling to a
movement activist who had gone to
sleep in 1968 and awakened 12 years
The political activists of the 60s,
who often spent more time fighting
each other than the enemy, have
realized that their only legitimate
power base lies in the unification of
various factions for the common
good of the country. The '70s were
spent examining goals, preparing
through education and self-
exploration and integrating the
political and social mainstream of
the country. Activists have realized
that you cannot change the system
through dropping out and attacking
from the outside and that the most
viable method of productive change
is the transition from within.
There have been many tremen-
dous protests against the menace of
nuclear proliferation such as the
various assaults on Seabrook, In-
dian Point and Rocky Flats. The
movement has had its first martyr in
Karen Silkwood and held its first
prominent demonstration last spr-
ing in Washington, D.C. The
newspaper headlines spoke of
"Carter's Vietnam and the event
brought together over 100,000 peo-
The event was the first major
political pronouncement of Barry
Commoner, candidate for president
for the Citizens Party. The interac-
tion between Commoner and the
crowd gave him and others the
realization that there is an under-
represented majority in this country
and offered the inspiration for the
genesis of the Citizens Party. What
has begun as one small group's
dream of taking the "lesser of two
evils" out of the political scenario is
on the verge of becoming a full-
blown political party.
Last August, another significant
toll was struck in the anti-corporate
movement as a verv prestigious
assemblage of popular musicians
gathered in Madison Square Garden
for the MUSE benefit for a non-
nuclear future. The MUSE
organization sponsored the concert,
a proceeding triple album vet. and
an upcoming cinematic endeavor
donating a significant portion to the
fight for renewable energy sources.
Although the group has been
criticized as a commercial exploita-
tion of a critical issue and for not
really donating that large a percen-
tage to the cause, it was still a very

New Greenville Area Band
To Debut Thursday Night
No Vacancy
The newest band in the Greenville area will play at JJ's this Thursday night. Three of the six musicians are ECU
students: (from left) Mark Little, Doug Jervey (ECU), Fred Midgett, Tod Stilley (ECU), Grace Brummett (ECU),
and David Sutton.
"It doesn't have to make sense to
be goodbut at least we're
What does this mean? Who
knows, but it's the slogan for one of
the newest bands in the Greenville
area � No Vacancy � and they'll
be at JJ's Thursday night.
No Vacancy is a six-piece group,
and three of the musicians are ECU
students: Grace Brummett, a junior
voice major from Fayetteville; Doug
Jervey, a freshman piano major
from Franklin, Va and Tod
Stilley, a freshman business major
from New Bern (he says his business
is rock and roll).
The present band has only been
together since January, according to
drummer Fred Midgett of
Maysville, but he and Stilley go
back to August 1978. They met
when playing for a March of Dimes
telethon and started writing music
shortly thereafter.
With Midgett on drums and
Stilley on guitars, they recruited
bassist and saxophonist Gerald Ed-
wards and began working out their
tunes. With the addition of vocalist
Scott Whitford, the original No
Vacancy band was compete.
In the summer of 1979, the band
released a demo tape. D.M. One
was distributed at Apple Records in
Greenville and Rainbow Records in
New Bern that the tape was made
with the bare minimum of electronic
accessories, the quality was accep-
table. But the originality and uni-
queness of the tunes on D.M. One
was the strongest aspect.
At the end of the summer, Ed-
wards went to Western Carolina
University to study saxophone and
Whitford quit the band and present
rhythm guitarist David Sutton of
Belgrade joined the group. Then
Stilley met keyboardist Doug
Jervey, who lived in the same dorm
and began playing with No Vacancy
after Thanksgiving.
In January of this year, vocalist
Grace Brummett. a resident
counselor at Real Crisis Center, and
bassist Mark Little, formerly of
Two Dollar Pistol, rounded out the
group and they begangrueling prac-
tice schedule � three or four nights
each week.
About a month ago, the group ac-
quired an excellent sound systrem
designed by Associated Sound Pro-
ducts ot Raleigh, quite a departure
from the sparse e uipment used on
D.M. One. Eb Strickland, jazz
guitarist in the ECU Jazz Ensemble,
presently runs the sound system for
No Vacancy and also for Buford T
and Tommy G.
No Vacancy's first gig was at Big
Surf in Atlantic Beach last weekend.

Semester's End
Means Certain
Woes For Bucs
Staff Writer
Another year at ECU is drawing
to a close. The smell of coconut oil
is in the air, crazed gunmen armed
with water pistols carry on their
misdeeds, an epidemic of broken
arms and sprained wrists rages un-
checked through the ranks of frisbee
players and, one by one, thousands
of students are finishing term papers
and starting exhaustive party and
exam schedules. College is nearly
always a pretty crazy place, and it
gets even more so at this time of the
year. Spring is really a great time to
sit back and watch the confusion
swirling around you, and there is
certainly a great variety of things to
create confusion.
Take refrigerators. Please, take
my refrigerator. I don't feel like lug-
ging it out to the trucks on the mall,
and as if carrying them back isn't
enough work, they even want us to
take out the leftover food. At least,
we get those $10 deposits back.
By the way, now is not a good
time to stock up with a month's
worth of groceries. It sounds stupid
to tell you this, but I have known
people who did that this late in the
semester and ended up eating six TV
dinners a day to get things cleared
Textbooks are a great source of
student aggravation, rivaled only by
our parking system and 8 a.m.
classes. Often, the store will not buy
back a certain text until the next
school year, which is not much help
to graduating seniors (or flunking
juniors). This is why my brother, a
prospective English major at
another school, received fpr
Christmas the complete works of
John Milton and Alexander Pope.
Sometimes, they will never buy
back a particular textbook, evert if
you never opened it. These are often
the expensive, boring ones. To be
fair, though, I can sometimes see
the store's point of view. After all,
would you want to buy 800 copies of
Principles of Grammatical Con-
struction or 550 copies of The Ad-
vanced Pharmaceutical Quantitative
Analysis Workbook?
Room sales are common around
this time. Pots, pans, dirty carpets,
unsalable textbooks on boring sub-
jects, old copies of Newsweek,
gigantic wooden bed platforms and
nearly everything else can be bought
at these sales. The problem is that
no one has any money right now.
Room sales can be a lot of trou-
ble, but they can ease the problems
of packing, which is the most
laborious task that any college stu-
dent can face. Not only must the
original fall consignment of junk be
sought out and packed, but the bat-

they also want their audiences to en-

An equally profound event was
Jimmy Carter's declaration of the
resumption of the registration and
possible conscription of 18 to 20
year olds, spurring political reaction
throughout the nation. On March
22, 1980, nearly 40 thousand in-
dividuals from all walks of life and
from all over the country united in
Washington to let the president,
generals and corporations know
that the American people will not

Last Saturday, the largest and
most comprehensive anti-nukeanti-
draft demonstration in the history
of the United States was scheduled
to take place in Washington, D.C.
The event was sponsored by the
Coalition for a Non-Nuclear World,
a broad-based alliance of labor,
women's, environmental, native
American and other groups that
began out of concern over nuclear
weapons and the nuclear power in-
dustries. The event was a four-day
affair that featured massive lobby-
ing speeches by such luminaries as
Barry Commoner and LaDonna
Harris, Dr. Helen Caldicott, Dave
Dellinger, Daniel Ellsberg, Dr. Ben
jamin Spock and Russell Means;
music from Bonnie Raitt and John
Hall, Blood, Sweat and Tears, Peter
Paul and Mary, Sweet Honey in the
Rock, Pete Seeger, Holly Near and
Bright Morning Star and
demonstrations such as yesterday's
attempt to block the Pentagon.
On the eve of the event, President
Carter, in perhaps the most
senseless act of the clampdown, sent
a "humanitarian rescue force to
Iran to attempt to rescue the
hostages from Iranian hands. Just
when our allies were beginning to
rally behind us and in spite of the
tremendous risk to the hsotages,
Carter sent a military strike force to
the brink of disaster. Only the hand
of God Allah prevented the military
action from destroying the hostages
and launching us headlong into the
Apocalypse. It set the stage for
future political and social upheaval.
We arrived in Washington at
about 11 a.m a perfectly miserable
Saturday. It was bitterly cold, and
torrents of rain descended upon the
city. The projected crowd of about
150,000 turned out to be a much
smaller yet stronger group of

reveal the tremendous impact of the

industry upon our society. As we
moved and chanted, I was deeply
moved by the strong feelings of
comaraderie among the members
and the affinity of the non-violent
procession. We were one with
ourselves and the world.
We arrived at the stage site, and

from political groups ranging from
the Citizens Party to the Socialist

Above all, the presence of the

Swaim has frequently been in-
volved in disagreements between the
newspaper and the campus govern-
ment. He feels that a primary role of
journalism is to be "the govern-
ment's adversary, the eye of the
people, the voice of the people. I
don't care if you're talking about
Richard Nixon and the Washington
Post or Brett Melvin and The East
Carolinian. There's always going to
be that adversary relationship.
There always has been. That's what
prompted the American Revolution.
That was one of the fundamental
principles this country was founded
on � freedom of the press.

Leo Jenkins, former chancellor of

taught me to say 'yes, sir' and 'yes,

As far as criticism is concerned,
Swaim adds, "To be a good jour-

roll off your back. You're not going
to please all the people all the time,

Swaim was instrumental in the
creation of the Media Board in

the board has maintained its
original purposes. "They have gone

created for two things: to ap-
propriate student funds for the

In the last four years, Swaim has
been the center of controversy more
than once. When asked how he
would respond to some of the
criticism that has been leveled
Swaim admits that he doesn't
know how to change the present
trends but adds that he feels that is
critical for the life of the newspaper
and other campus media that the
situations be changed. "I have been
shocked, appalled and frightened by
some of their actions. They do
thing you can do is surround
yourself with the smartest, hardest-
working and most capable people
you can find in the land. That's
what Dr. Jenkins did, and that's
why this university has grown and
prospered. I applied that little
theory to my department, and I sur-
rounded myself with the best people
I could find. That's what 1 learned-
from Dr. Jenkins.
"He was a great man; he fought
tooth and nail for everything we've
gotten, and nothing makes my
blood boil more than to hear these
'new people' in the new administra-
tion detract from Dr. Jenkins and
criticize them. It makes my blood
boil and makes me want to spit in
their eye Swaim paused and add-
ed, "I hope you day that I said that

Jenkins. I cannot conceive of there
ever being a chancellor of East
Carolina University as great as Leo
Jenkins was. There'll never be
another one. I don't even think
anybody will run a close second
Outside of ECU, Swaim feels that
the person who played the greatest
role in shaping his ideals and beliefs
has been his grandmother. "She
taught me everything. She taught
"Robert was certainly responsible
for putting the paper on the map in
North Carolina. He worked harder
for the newspaper than any staff
Richard Green, managing editor
states that Swaim's contribution to
the newspaper is "unequalled b
anyone that I know of. He is a good
friend of mine, and even though we
often disagree, I have the greatest
respect for his ability
Swaim's opinions have not always
been readily accepted by his
editorial staff. "1 have rarely agreed
with Robert's conservative point of
view says Marc Barnes, editor-in-
chief, "and I have butted heads with
him on more than one occasion this
year, but his talent and expertise in
college advertising ranks is unsur-
passed. He is good at what he
Even those who disagree with him
strongly have to admit that Swaim
has been an excellent advertising
director. "Thank God he has

sure can make money, and he saved

One factor in Swaim's decision to
leave was that he felt that he had
been so involved in activities at ECU
rftat he lost sight of the world out-
side the university. "1 made a

Swaim also credits the rest of his
family for teaching him the work

me that laziness is the sorriest thing

Athletes Of The Year
QB Green Recognized
As Offensive Catalyst
Sports Editor
Leander Green, star quarterback
of last season's record-breaking
East Carolina football team, has
been named as The East Caroli-
nian's 1979-80 ECU Male Athlete of
the Year.
Green edged out two of his team-
mates, running back Anthony Col-
lins and All-America guard Wayne
Inman to capture the honor. Also
considered highly was basketball
star George Maynor, baseball stan-
dout Butch Davis and track star Otis
At 5-foot-7 Green is considered
too short for a professional quarter-
back but used his speed, quickness,
wits and know-how to become one
of the top wishbone generals in the
nation over the past two seasons.
The Jacksonville native was nam-
ed by ex-ECU head coach Pat Dye
to his personal all-Pirate team after
his resignation last December. Dye
coached at ECU for six seasons.
Green had by far his most pro-
ductive season in 1979, directing an
awesome Pirate offens e to a na-
tional rushing championship. ECU
also finished in the top three in the
nation in total offense and scoring
"This is the greatest offensive
unit I've ever seen Dye said after
the season. "And Leander is the
kev to it all. There's simply nothing
he can't do. He is a superb runner
and his passing has come such a
long ways
Dye also cited Green for his abili-
I ty to make the correct choice on the
I option. "In the wishbone offense

I quarterback. He must have a sixth

I wouldn't trade him for any quarter-
back in the nation
In his senior season Green set a
single-season school record in total
offense as he ran and passed his way
for 1,714 yards.
Perhaps Green's finest moments
came in his final home game at
ECU's Ficklen Stadium. It was on
that day that the flashy senior set a
school record for single-game total
offense as he compiled 285 yards, 90
by rushes and 195 via the airways.
Green also established a single
game record in '79 for most yards
per rush when he averaged 12.7
yards per carry in a 52-0 drubbing of
Richmond. In the romp Green car-
ried 14 times for a whopping 178
A starter his junior and senior
seasons after sharing the QB slot his
sophomore year, Green has left his
name in the ECU record books. He
ranks third in career total offense,
fourth in yards passing, fourth in
pass completions and tenth in
rushing yardage.
The offense that Green directed
his senior season is certainly the
most prolific in Pirate gridiron
history. The Pirates broke virtually
every single-season team offense
mark in the books, the most im-
pressive of which was the total of-
fense figure of 5,228 yards. The old
mark of 4,245 was literally crushed.
Versatile Riley Picked
As Female Recipient
Assistant Sports Editor
Leander Green In Midst Of Option
Also contributing greatly to these
figures were runnerups Collins and
Collins became the first Pirate to
rush for over 1,000 yards since the
days of Carlester Crumplcr when he
totaled 1,130 in 1979. He ranked
fourth in the nation in all-purpose
running, averaging 154.1 yards per
game. TK Penn Yan, N.Y. native
also averaged an eye-popping 7.3
yards per carry.
Inman was named to The
Associated Press third team All-
America squad, becoming the first
Pirate griddef so highly honored
since 1976. Inman received the
Pirate Blocking Trophy for the se-
cond consecutive year and, like Col-
lins, returns to the 1980 ECU squad.
Maynor, a fourth round "future"
draft choice in last year's NBA
draft, wac named Most Valuable
Player of the 1979-80 ECU cage
squad. The team finished 16-11,
becoming the first Pirate team to
post a winning mark since 1975, and
were led by the often-incredible
The Raeford native led the team
in scoring with an average of 17.0
points per game and had a high
game of 30 in his career finale
against Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
Davis has been the catalyst off the
remarkable ECU baseball squad
that seems sure of attaining an
NCAA bid due to an incredible 28-5
mark. Davis has 12 homers thus
far, a new school record, and has
maintained a batting average of
over .380 for most of the season.
Melvin is perhaps the key to the
Pirate's incredible relay teams. An
AU-American, Melvin was the
catalyst in the indoor mile relay
team's second place finish in the na-
The selection of The East Caroli-
nian's female Athlete of the Year in
the 1979-80 term was somewhat
more difficult than in years past.
In basketball there was Rosie
Thompson becoming the all-time
leading rebounder and scorer in
ECU history. There was Laurie
Sikes ranking among the top assist
makers in the nation.
Lady Pirate track claimed All-
American Cookie McPhatter and
swimming added a list of eight
female natators touted as AU-
Americans. Volleyball slumped and
softball soared; basketball improv-
ed in all aspects.
There was, however, a common
denominator between the two most
successful Lady Pirate programs
and that talented junior was our
unanimous choice as female athlete
of the year: Kathy Riley.
Lured from Middle Tennessee
State University by second-year
basketball mentor Cathy Andruzzi.
Riley immediately earned a starting
berth on the 21-10 basketball squad,
but walked onto the softball team
and robbed a scholarship freshman
of her outfield spot.
Riley faught her way through the
challenging basketball season mat-
ched defensively against taller op-
ponants. But when push came to
shove, there were few who profited
from a confrontation with the 5-9
Nashville native.

Butch Davis Takes A Cut
Assistant Sports Editor
The East Carolina baseball team,
destined to receive a berth to the
regionals, improved their record to
28-5 Sunday by sweeping a
doubleheader from Atlantic Chris-
tian College 6-0 and 4-0.
Junior Rick Ramey and southpaw
Bob Patterson added 14 innings to
East Carolina's mark of 27 con-
secutive scoreless innings over the
past four outings. Both notched
complete games and allowed ACC
only three hits in the pair of games.
Shortstop Frank Carmichael
spoiled Ramey's bid for a perfect

single to right. The Ridgeway,
Virginia native struck out five and
issued a pair of walks in going the
Senior leftfielder Butch Davis
blasted his 12th home run of the
season to lead off the Pirate's half

Hallow swatted his first round-
tripper in the purple and gold over
the right field fence to plate Best.
Best led off the fifth witha walk
and stole second, as the ACC cat-
cher sailed the ball to center field
allowing Best to advance to third.
He later scored on a wild pitch.
Patterson issued three walks in

Lady Pirates Take NCAIA W Championship
Assistant Sports Editor
East Carolina's Lady Pirates added another crown to
their record-setting softball season, capturing the North
Carolina Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for
Women championship Sunday in Graham.
The Pirates drew a bye in the opening round as the
top ranked team in the state and proceeded to eliminate
Campbell 6-5, UNC-Chapel Hill 3-0 and Western
Carolina 6-3 to claim the golden trophy.
East Carolina suffered their closest match of the
tourney in the first contest, as underdog Campbell
challenged the Pirates for glory.
Sophomore Maureen Buck led off the contest with a
single and freshman Mitzi Davis followed later with a
sacrifice to plate the first ECU run.
Slugging first sacker Shirley Brown bounced a double
over the left field wall, advanced on a fielder's choice
and scored on a single by Buck.
� East Carolina held the edge, but the Camals struck
back in the third on a single by Sandra Kelley and a base
clearing homer to left-center by Rhonda Mueller.
The Bucs again assumed the offensive in the fifth,
with Buck reaching first on a fielder's choice, Davis ad-
ding a single and Cynthia Shepard clubbing a single to
plate Buck. Junior Kathy Riley stroked a homer to
center to score Davis and Shepard.
Campbell retaliated with a homer in the fifth as Tam-
my McCauley homered to left-center and Mueller singl-
ed and scored on a base knock by Sherry Raynor.
Campbell made a seventh inning run at the Pirates,
but managed only one run on a Cheryl Tew single and a
sacrifice by Raynor. '
In their other Saturday contest, East Carolina
demolished UNC-Chapd HUl with Davis fading the
way in the first with a single and Riley adding an RBI
double. Cynthia Shepard reached first on an error and
scored on a single by Yvonne "Flea" Williams.
Winning pitcher Mary Bryan Carlyle scattered four
Tar Heel hits as she recorded her second win of the
tourney. Shepard provided another run in the sixth on a
single and a run producing rap by Williams.
East Carolina's 28th win of the season against four
losses came in the championship matchup against sur-
prise entry Western Carolina.
Senior catcher Jan McVeigh clubbed a single in the
first and scored on a homer by Shepard.
Western's Beth Crisp tripled in the second and
Curtley Schulties sacrifice drove her in.
Riley slapped a solo homer to center in the fourth, but
all bats remained virtually silent until the top of the final
inning when ECU plated a trio of insurance runs.
ECU opened the inning with junior shortstop Mary
Powell reached first on an error and was replaced by
pinch-runner Lillion Barnes. Browrt followed by
reaching on an error also and Angie Humphrey replaced
her on the bases.
Freshman second sacker Ginger Rothermel singled in
Barnes and Cindy Meekins, batting for Carlyle, sacrific-
ed home Humphrey. Terry Andrews stepped to the plate
for Buck and slapped a shot which the WCU shortstop
bobbled to let Rothermel score.
The Catamounts launched an offensive in their half
of the inning which yielded a pair of runs as Crisp singl-
ed and advanced to third on a error by Williams. Ducy
Thompson reached first on a fielder's choice to score
Crisp and Kit Rea's erred shot allowed Rea to plate the
final WCU run.
Carlyle again claimed the win as allowed the
disgruntled Catamounts a mere five hits on the contest.
East Carolina and WCU advance to a playoff this
weekend at Graham with the top two teams of the other
two divisions of the NCAIAW. The Lady Pirates again
draw a bye and will face the winner of the Pembroke-
North Carolina Wesleyan matchup.

The drive was capitaliz-

three periods, erupted
for two fourth quarter
touchdowns. One
came on a 30-yard
jaunt by fullback
Theodore Sutton and
the other on a two-yard
plunge by Greg
Stewart. Both were

immediately followed
Collins' jaunt, as a six-

capped by Sutton's
30-yard romp.
Quarterback Greg
Stewart made it 21-8
when nr succeeded in a
two-point conversion
attempt with a keeper

The other Gold score
came late in the game
and was again
engineered by
sophomore Stewart.

The final eight points
were put on the board
when Stewart went over
from the two for six
and halfback Leon

two-point attempt.
Besides Nelson, there
were several outstan-

mances in the intras-
quad meeting. Sutton
was the leading ground
gainer, totalling 81
yards in 11 carries for
the Gold team.
Fullback Roy Wiley

Gold tight end Will

receiving star, pulling

Dodgers Get Nod As NL West Favorite
Sports Editor
Will it be the re-
juvinated Dodgers, the
Ryanized Astros or the
real Reds in 1980?
The National League
West race is just that
full of questions this
season. The three
forementioned clubs
are the ones considered
serious candidates to
take the crown.
Will it be Los
Angelas, the over-
whelming favorite last
year that was a flop un-
til it was too late? Or
will it be the Houston
Astros, who have an in-
credible pitching staff
but no hitting?
What about the
defending champion
Cincinnati Reds?
Aren't they just as
strong as a year ago?
Tennis Team
Wins Tourney
Staff Writer
The East Carolina
tennis team captured its
own Invitational Tour-
nament this past
weekend by winning
the first, third, fourth
and sixth flights and
the championship in
the singles competition.
ECU won with 20
points, followed by
UNC-W with 18,
Campbell with 15,
while NC Central failed
to score in the two-day
event. St. Augustine,
the pre-tournament
favorite did not com-
Kenny Love finished
up a fine four year
career with the Pirates
by winning the number
one flight. Henry
Hostetler also ended his
career by placing se-
cond in the number two
flight, Keith Zengle
dominated his op-
ponents to win the
number three flight,
while Ted Lepper had
to struggle to win the
number four flight.
Bai rv Parker placed
third in the fifth flight
and Mark Byrd swept
through all his matches
to win the sixth flight.
The Pirate netters
were fortunate to have
played so strong in the
singles, because they
could place no higher
than second in the
doubles competition.
Lepper and Zengle
wound up with second
place at the number one
position; Love and
Hostetler only manag-
ed a third place finish
in the second flight;
and Parker and Nor-
man Bryant captured
second place in the
third flight.
Coach Rose com-
mented, "1 was real
pleased with the boys'
efforts. They all work-
ed hard to win this
Love's victory was
especially rewarding
because he lost to two
of the players in his
flight during the
season. 'T just tried to
stay on top in my mat-
ches Love said. "It
was a good way to go
ECU finished the
season 10-8.
The rest of the divi-
sion � San Francisco,
Atlanta and San Diego
� does not rate with
the others, therefore
making for what
should be a three team
race to the pot of gold.
The Dodgers get the
nod here. Dissension
and injuries, not to
mention unusually
poor pitching, led to
the poor season last
year. There is too
much talent on this
squad for the same
thing to happen two
years in a row.
Steve Garvey, Ron
Cey, Davey Lopes,
Reggie Smith and Steve
Yeager are still around
to batter opposing pit-
chers, giving the
Dodgers a powerful of-
fensive attack.
The pitching, which
slipped greatly a year
ago, should return to
respectability. The
main reason for this is
the spending of $5
million in the re-entry
draft to acquire the ser-
vices of Dave Goltz of
Minnesota (14-13 last
season) and reliever
Don Stanhouse of
Baltimore (7-3, 2.84
ERA and 21 saves).
These two coupled
with holdover starters
Doug Rau, Don Sut-
ton, Rick Suteliffe and
Burt Hooten give the
Dodgers the nucleus of
what could be the staff
o a pennant winner.
Outfield injuries also
hurt LA last year.
Starters Rick Monday
and Reggie Smith
played only 80 games
between them,
something the Califor-
nians can ill-afford to
happen again. If the
two stars are healthy
this year and the pit-
ching becomes sound
again, LA is on the
Cincinnati has the
troops to repeat and
fewer ifs than do the
Dodgers and Astros.
The one big if is the
Red pitching staff.
Young and inexperienc-
ed, it could go either
way this year.
Staff ace Tom Seaver
can be expected to have
a banner year. Mike
LaCoss was exceptional
for the first half of last
season but tired near
the end of the season.
He does appear,
though, to be an up and
coming star.
Beyond LaCoss and
Seaver, Cincy's pit
ching is of unknowr
quantity. Manager
John McNamara likes
his staff, calling them
young but extremely
talented. Only time
will tell whether he is
The fact that the
Reds won last year
despite the fact that
Ken Griffey played on-
ly 95 games is im-
pressive. All-Star slug-
ger George Foster also
missed 40 games.
Foster is perhaps the
top power hitter in the
game. In only 121
games last year he had
30 homers, 98 RBIs and
batted .302.
Also around to help
with the offense is
shortstop Dave Con-
cepcion, catcher
Johnny Bench, third
baseman Ray Knight,
first baseman Dan
Driessan and up-and-
coming star Dave Col-
These are not the
Reds of the Big Red
Machine era, but
they're strong con-
tenders nonetheless.
The Astros have
what everyone wants �
pitching, pitching, pit-
ching. The acquisition
of free agent superstar
Nolan Ryan gives
Houston a phenomenal
With Ryan and
James Rodney
Richard, the Astros
have perhars the two
hardest throwers in the
game. Also around for
starting duty is Joe
Niekro, who won 21
games last year, and
Ken Forsch, who has a
no-hitter to his credit.
In the bullpen there's
Joe Sambito and Joa-
quin Andujar, last
year's dynamic All-Star

Astros all the pitching
any team could dream
of. Now if they only
