East Carolina University confer-
red degrees upon a near-record
2,857 graduates at its 71st Com-
mencement on May 9, 1980.
The total included 2,167
undergraduate and 690 graduate
degrees, for which work was com-
pleted during the summer, fall and
spring semesters. It fell slightly
short of the record 1978 ECU
graduation total of 2,872.
The graduates are from 86 of the
state's 100 counties, from 12 states
and the District of Columbia, and
four foreign countries.
Dr. William J. Bennett, executive
director of the National Center for
the Humanities, delivered the 1980
Commencement address before the
graduates, their families and the
university faculty in Ficklen

Confidential Loans Offered
By LARRY ZICHERMAN
Assistant News Editor
ECU's Confidential Loan Fund
has been receiving a lot of attention
recently.
The fund, one of two such pro-
grams in the state, provides loans to
students for the continuation or ter-
mination of pregnancy. The other
program is at Duke University in
Durham. UNC-G had a similar pro-
gram but discontinued it in 1976.
The programs were recently
discussed in articles by the Raleigh
News and Observer and the
Associated Press. The N&O has
Published several letters to the
editor, both pro and con, on the
subject as well.
ECU's loan is available to both
men and women. The woman must
provide proof of her pregnancy and
the man or woman or both must
receive counseling from the
Counseling Center.
The fund provides six-month,
interest-free loans of up to $150, ac-
cording to Kirk Little, SGA
treasurer. The money in the fund
comes entirely from student fees,
and no state money is involved. It
was established in 1973.
"The SGA in the past decided
that if the individual decides to con-
tinue pregnancy or stop it and gets
the necessary medical examination
and counseling, then we offer ge-
nuine help to make their decision
easier said Charlie Sherrod, SOA
president.
"No one in student government
in the past or the present has tried to
legislate that we are for or against
either continuing or terminating
pregnancy. It is up to the individual
to decide how to live his or her life
Sherrod continued.
"As long as I have been involved
in student government, for three
years, no student has ever come up
to me and said that they thought the
program was wrong and we should
stop it. Until the students, whose
money it is, object overwhelmingly
to the program, we will continue
it he said.
Duke University established their
abortion loan program in 1972, and
in the beginning of May voted to
establish a similar loan fund for use
by students who wish to continue
their pregnancies. Their program
loans up to $300 interest-free for up
to six months upon proof of
pregnancy, according to Valerie
Mosley of the Duke SGA.
"The program is not a moral
judgement, in our view, but rather a
service to those students who need
it she said. The program initially
was the object of controversy, main-
ly from religious groups and the
Duke Catholic students' organiza-
tion, but little attention has been
paid to it recently, Mosley added.
UNC-G discontinued their loan
program about 1976 in the face of
pressure from religious and anti-
abortion groups and several state
legislators.
While sources at ECU say that no
single factor led to Athletic Director
Bill Cain's resignation announced
May 12, problems with the athletic
budget have been cited as one cause
of dissatisfaction with his track
record.
But as Vice Chancellor for
Business Affairs Cliff Moore has
noted, ECU is not the only school
with athletic budget problems, and
hiring a new director will not
automatically erase deficits.
Following a meeting May 9 of the
ECU board of trustees executive
committee, Cain announced his
stepdown. During the meeting,
Chancellor Brewer pressed for
Cain's resignation, according to
sources.
Problems with athletic funding
are becoming widespread across the
nation. According to the College
Press Service (CPS), athletic depart-
ments at all but the most successful
sports schools � the Penn States,
Oklahomas and Southern Cals �
are in deep financial trouble.
The major cause, most sources
say, is inflation.
"If you're paying for an athlete's
tuition explained the NCAA
public relations director in a recent
CPS article, "and those tuitions
keep going up, sooner or later
you're going to run out of money
The money crunch arrived at
dozens of schools this year. Univer-
sity of Florida will close its 1979-80
sports season with a $657,000
athletic department deficit. The
University of Massachusetts-
Amherst sports program suffered an
$82,500 deficit, while the University
of Colorado was $650,000 over
budget.
Although a deficit is expected in
the ECU athletic budget for
1979-80, the exact figures have not
been determined.
"The Pirate Club has a commit-
ment of several hundred thousand
dollars to us, but their money won't
be coming in until June or July
said Cliff Moore. "What they turn
in will determine the size of any
deficit The deficit for ECU has
been tentatively guessed at about
$100,000.
Consequently, athletic directors
are asking students to help more fre-
quently. At Fort Hays University in

After Transit Revamp
Service Is Back To Normal
By TERRY GRAY
News Editor
Student bus services, which were
temporarily disrupted when all 12
SGA bus drivers quit in anger on
April 29, are back to normal.
Following the walkout, profes-
sional bus drivers had to be called in
to continue services until the end of
exams, but student drivers are again
at the wheels.
The drivers quit after SGA Presi-
dent Charlie Sherrod announced he
would not reappoint Leonard Flem-
ing as co-manager of the student
transit system. In the week
preceding the walkout, Sherrod had
released transit co-manager Chubby
Abshire from his position, naming
Danny O'Connor as his replace-
ment. The drivers had reacted by
threatening to strike. Through a
spokesman they related that they
thought O'Connor was unqualified
for the job.
When Sherrod announced later
that he would hold a special meeting
to discuss the transit situation, the
drivers postponed taking any
definite action. It was at this April
29 meeting that Sherrod failed to
reappoint Fleming, thus prompting
the drivers to quit.
Sherrod named graduate student
Nicky Francis to succeed Fleming.
Francis hired five new drivers for
the transit buses and rehired two of
the drivers who quit.
The main objection of the drivers
who quit was that the transit
managers should not be political ap-
pointees but should be drawn from
the ranks of experienced transit
employees. Neither O'Connor or
Francis has had experience in runn-
ing transit services although
O'Connor said he drove a bus while
in high school.
"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
years ago said Freddie Simons,
one of the drivers who quit.
Fleming said he had been training
one of the drivers as a candidate to
take over Abshire's job, which
would have been vacant upon Ab-
shire's graduation after the first
summer session.
"In any business, upward mobili-
ty is the strongest incentive for peo-
ple to work hard said Fleming the
day before Sherrod decided not to
reappoint him.
Sherrod said this Monday that he
had not originally intended to let
Fleming go, but that the controversy
during the week following Abshire's
release caused him to doubt whether

The committee also agreed to
make colleges wait until 1981 for
federal funds to help them remove
architectural barriers to handicap-
ped students.
The cuts, according to the com-
mittee report, may make some
students from middle class families
ineligible for BEOG monies. Many

Also officials emphasized that the
"hold" does not apply to graduate
students or those already pre-

fall, ECU had an on-campus enroll-
ment of 12,600. Pre-registered this
spring for next fall are 8,600
students compared to about 8,000
pre-registered a year ago.
Bortz said transfer and other
students who will pursue programs
other than in the School of Business

All admission of new students to the
ECU School of Business has been
suspended and probably will remain
suspended through Spring, 1981.

Job Market Slightly Brighter
New Athletic
Director Sought
Engineering
Grads Top List
College graduates this year will be
looking for starting salaries some 5
to 9 percent higher than those of
their 1979 counterparts, according
to a recent Northwestern University
Placement Center survey.
Most in demand by employers
will be engineers, who can expect an
average starting salary of $20,136 a
year. Next in order with bachelor's
degrees are computer science ma-
jors, $17,712; math and statistics
grads, $17,604; chemistry, $17,124;
sales and marketing, $15,936; ac-
counting, $15,720; finance and
economics, $14,472; business ad-
ministration, $14,100; liberal arts,
$13,296.
The job outlook continues to im-
prove for college graduates, with 16
percent more positions available this
year for holders of bachelor's
degrees and 4 percent more jobs for
those with master's degrees. An
M.S. in engineering will command
an average starting salary of
$23,136; an M.B.A. in a technical
field, $22,632.
Incidentally, when the interview
stage approaches, many job
counselors are telling students to
leave their resumes at home. Most
interviewers, according to these con-
Liberal Arts Majors Find Door
Opening For Current Employment
sultants, are not comioriaoie in the inter-
viewing process. Thus, by leaving the resume
at home, the job applicant denies the inter-
viewer this "crutch" or support, and the
grad has a better chance of directing the in-
terview to his or her advantage.
The unsuccessful job applicant may find
the following reasons for rejection helpful.
Responses from employment and personnel
directors from one hundred major business
firms cited the following factors, in order of
frequency, as leading to rejections of job
seekers:
1) Poor grades or accomplishment level; 2)
Personality problems; 3) Lack of goals and
motivation; 4) Lack of general enthusiasm;
5) Lack of interest in firm's business.

She is talking about a slight improvement
in the long-depressed job market for liberal
arts majors this spring. "With a bit of hustl-
ing and concentrated job seeking counsels
Gordon Gray, Career Services director at
George Washington University, "a liberal
arts graduate should be successful.
"The average liberal arts major has it
much better than his predecessors of the last
six or, seven years, especially in the private
sector of hiring he adds.
Experts point to several factors that have
improved, at least tenuously, liberal arts ma-
jors' job prospects. One is that students have
stayed away from liberal arts so long that
they've created a shortage.
The phenomenon is most noticeable in
education. "We find (school) districts are re-
quired to go out of state for new teachers
says Ralph Graves of Maine's State Educa-
tion Commission. "Until about 1977, we
had people pounding down the doors" for
jobs. Then "it leveled off for a while, and
now it's a problem of actively recruiting to
keep quality (of education) up
Other areas of the country are also repor-
ting current or imminent teacher shortages,
especially in the Sun Belt states. The
Southern Regional Education Board expects
its "current oversupply of new teachers" to
dwindle into a teacher shortage by the end of
the decade.
Yet job hunting for liberal arts majors
largely remains a catch-as-catch-can pro-
position. The federal government, tradi-
tionally the biggest recruiter of liberal arts
majors, has a hiring freeze. Most state
governments have drastically reduced hiring.
So in general a liberal arts major must "look
for blips in the market" to find gainful
employment, says University of Illinois
Career Development Director Dave Bechtel.
One may, for example, notice that a com-
pany is expanding its international sales divi-
sion. "That Bechtel says, "might be a
good opportunity for a language major
Gray of George Washington University
also uses language majors to illustrate the
"little bit of hustling" he recommends.
"Language degrees are very seldom sought
after, except for teaching and translating
positions. More often a prospective
employer may be searching for a language as
a secondary qualification, for example,

success of the program
to the personal rela-
tionship she builds with
the students. "They
need to know that I'm a
person as well as a
police officer. A big
part of my job is taking
the time to meet the
students, to let them
know I'm around in
case they need me

The award was

Transit Strike
Drivers Missed The Point
The recent Student Government
Transit (SGT) drivers' strike on
April 29 was totally unwarranted
and misdirected. Fortunately, ECU
students didn't feel the effects
because SGA President Charlie
Sherrod came up with enough
drivers to keep all routes operating
during exams.
The drivers walked out to protest
Sherrod's dismissal of transit
managers Chubby Abshire and
Leonard Fleming. The drivers
claimed that Sherrod had no right to
choose his own cabinet members
and that Abshire and Fleming
should have had job protection
through seniority in their positions.
The drivers missed the point.
The spoils system � the practice
of presidents choosing their own
cabinet members upon election � is
common practice in national and
student governments. On the na-
tional level, it is not uncommon for
cabinet members to submit resigna-
tions to the newly-elected president
to make the task of reshuffling per-
sonnel easier and less painful. But
the SGT drivers seem to have
forgotten their seventh-grade civics
courses when Sherrod decided to
replace the two managers who were
chosen by a former SGA president.
The drivers are right about one
thing: Abshire and Fleming had ex-
perience. Both students worked
hard to improve the transit system,
and their replacement is no reflec-
tion on their performance of duties.
But it is the right of any president to
choose people that he feels will serve
both him and the student body
satisfactorily.
If the drivers'thought that seniori-
ty should be respected in the transit
system, they should have protested
the system, not the president. For
example, if the transit system was
NOT under the SGA, transit
employees, including managers,
would be promoted or demoted ac-
cording to experience and qualifica-
tions. And that might not be a bad
idea.
If the transit system were con-
ducted as a business instead of a
political interest, many problems
could be solved. An alternative to
the present system might be the for-
mation of a " transit board
similar to the Media Board, that
would receive an equitable share of
student funds for the operation of
the transit system. The transit
managers' positions would be pro-
tected from political pandering, and
the annual bickering in the student
legislature over the transit budget
would be eliminated.
Student transportation should
have nothing to do with student
government. On the national level,
the Department of Transportation
doesn't decide who manages in-
dividual transportation services; it
simply builds roads and regulates
competition. Since there is only one
"transportation business" on cam-
pus and we already have roads,
there is no need for a "secretary of
transportation
So the SGA drivers didn't effect
any changes by walking out. The
problems of the transit system will
remain unless the drivers or
legislators decide to do something
constructive to change it.
ECU Lost A Good Man
The East Carolinian joins the
university community in mourning
the passing of one of ECU's most
renowned educators, Dr. Clinton
Roosevelt Prewett, who died on
May 8.
Dr. Prewett, a tenured full pro-
fessor of psychology, was known as
a pioneer in the field of mental
health and education. In 1957 Dr.
Prewett took over the psychology
department, which at that time con-
sisted of himself and two pro-
fessors. The psychology department
that stands on the ECU campus to-
day is a living and working monu-
ment to the man who built it.
Prewett is also remembered for
his contributions in the area of stu-
dent affairs. He designed and im-
plemented the division of student
affairs in the early 1950's.
During his 30 year tenure at ECU
he taught andor knew over half of
ECU's present alumni, and he kept
close his ties to those students who
were nurtured through four years of
college by him.
During the past two years,
Prewett served as a special assistant
to the chancellor. In that capacity
he worked on special athletic
assignments and was a key figure in
the search for and selection of
coaches. He also was instrumental
on the chancellor search committee
that selected Dr. Jenkins' replace-
ment.
Prewett, above all else, was a
champion of the students. He
taught his students to think and
challenge, outside the classroom as
well as within. Prewett himself was
a thinker and a problem solver,
described sometimes as the ad-
ministration's best troubleshooter.
Prewett's philosophy of life was
altruistic. He believed that young
people were, in their own right,
capable and intelligent. He felt that
the role of a professor was not to sit
in judgement, but rather to share his
knowledge with his students. Dr.
Prewett will best be remembered as
one who was quick to share his
thoughts and wisdom and even
quicker to listen to a different view.
He was a kind and gentle man
with very down home mystique
about him that made him all the
more fascinating. He spoke softly
but forcefully and always with pur-
pose.
Clinton Prewett will long be
remembered for his contributions to
this university and the entire educa-
tional community. ECU will miss
him sorely.
Educational Testing Service
'Is It Accountable To Anyone?'
By RALPH NADER
The next time you pick up a well-
sharpened No. 2 pencil and begin to hur-
riedly answer a standardized, multiple-
choice test, chances are that your test is
one of more than eight million given an-
nually by the Educational Testing Service
(ETS). You may know ETS manufactures
SATs, LSATs, GREs and GMATs. With
these tests alone, ETS influences the
educational and career opportunities of
millions of people. But the power of ETS
does not begin or end with those tests.
ETS markets 299 different tests. ETS
tests are used to determine entrance to over
60 occupations including firefighters, ac-
tuaries, policemen, real estate brokers,
sailors, teachers, gynecologists, engineers,
and auto mechanics. ETS test results are
the standards of access to some of the most
powerful professions: Foreign Service of-
ficers, New York stockbrokers, lawyers in
over 40 states, and even CIA agents. Two
million elementary students take ETS tests,
and ETS is developing ways to test infants.
ETS helps determine who will be eligible
for financial aid and how much they will
receive. The financial information ETS ob-
tains on nearly two million families is more
detailed than a mortgage application or an
IRS return. ETS consultants and trainees
help shape education and labor allocation
policy in scores of countries, including
Singapore, Brazil and Saudi Arabia. And
ETS has test centers in 120 countries.
In thirty years, probably 90 million peo-
ple have had their schooling, jobs, pro-
spects for advancement, and beliefs in
their own potential directly shaped by the
quiet but pervasive power of ETS.
What is the Educational Testing Ser-
vice? How has it centralized so much
power? Is it accountable to anyone, or
anything? Should your opportunities be so
influenced by ETS' standards of aptitude
or intelligence?
Despite its massive influence, few people
question ETS. Students may want to tear
up test forms in moments of frustration,
but few of us think of challenging the cor-
poration that makes the tests. We will soon
release a lengthy report on ETS, written by
Allan Nairn, which we hope will help peo-
ple understand, and question, the unique
and unregulated power of this corpora-
tion.
Indeed, ETS is, in non-dollar ways, a
large corporation. It has more customers
per year than GM and Ford combined.
Despite its non-profit status, it declares
roughly a million dollars in "non-profits"
each year. This money is plowed back into
corporate expansion and maintaining the
ETS estate, which includes a 400 acre
headquarters in Princeton, New Jersey, a
$250,000 home for the president, William
Turnbull, and a S3 million
hotelconference center � all built with
student test fees. Its revenue from test fees
enabled ETS to double in size every five
years from 1948 to 1972, a rate of growth
faster than IBM.
ETS's sales and near monopoly power,
combined with its privileged legal status as
a non-profit corporation, make it un-
precedented in corporate history. ETS is
exempt from federal and state income
taxes, is effective beyond the reach of
many anti-trust laws, and has no
stockholders. ETS escapes the restraints
governing other corporations because it is
an "educational" institution.
The power of ETS is massive, as even
one ETS executive conceded. "No matter
what they try to tell you here about how we
really don't have much power he said,
"we know we do. We know we're the na-
tion's gatekeeper This gatekeeper can
determine who enters college, graduate
and professional schools, as well as many
occupations and professions. Is that power
legitimate?
ETS defends its role as the gatekeeper by
claiming it has developed the "science of
mental measurement but as our report
will argue, the tests measure nothing more

than how you answered a few multiple-
choice questions. The correlation between
SAT scores and first-year grades in college,
for example, is often lower than the cor-
relation between the test scores and the in-
come of the test taker's parents. At best,
standardized tests measure the specialized
skill of test-taking, but they do not
measure key determinants of success such
as writing and research skill, ability to
make coherent arguments, creativity,
motivation, stamina, judgment, experience
or ethics.
ETS not only influences how institutions
judge individuals, however; it also in-
fluences how individuals judge themselves.
As Nairn says, "A false self-estimate or
image is instilled in the mind of the in-
dividual who receives a standardized test
score. For although the scores are
significantly determined by social class, he
is told they are objective, scientific
measures of the individual
Moreover, test takers are subject to
numerous injustices, ranging from incor-
rect scoring of tests, to late reporting of
applicant information, to secret evaluation
of grades and test scores � and they have
no recourse.
We must begin to examine the ex-
aminers.
There is a growing movement to reform
and restructure the testing industry. In
New York, Ohio, Texas and other states,
student-run Public Interest Research
Groups (PIRGs) have introduced "Truth
in Testing" legislation in their state
legislatures. This legislation would force
ETS and other testing companies to
disclose test questions and answers, and all
studies and data on the tests; it would also
require companies to keep information on
applicants confidential. Disclosing test
answers would enable students to contest
disputed answers, and thus eliminate much
of the mystery surrounding the tests. ETS
has said it is willing to release 99 percent of
its test data. But, Nairn says, the bulk of
this 99 percent is the material provided by
the test-takers themselves � name, social
security number, etc. Nairn says it is
crucial to disclose that last one percent, as
it includes ETS's extrapolations from the
information provided by test-takers �
such as predictions of future academic suc-
cess.
The testing reform movement has other
facets. Jesse Jackson is organizing around
the issue of the ETS National Teacher Ex-
aminations which have systematically
eliminated qualified black applicants from
teaching jobs. The FTC has apparently
found, contrary to ETS claims, that cer-
tain kinds of prep or cram courses can
raise test scores � but the report has been
withheld at this time. And several members
of Congress have called for an investiga-
tion of the testing industry.
Students now have opportunities to
challenge the test makers.
Individuals interested in this issue, or in
sponsoring Truth in Testing legislation,
can contact Ed Hanley at our office at
P.O. Box 19312, Washington, D.C. 20036.
Canal Residents Get Assistance, Contamination Remains
By PATRICK MINGES
It's all too easy. With the
availability of bumper stickers, glow
in the dark t-shirts, and even major-
selling pop albums (Call before mid-
night tonight. Operators are stan-
ding by.), the anti-nuclear move-
ment is almost the liberal vogue. It
is good that the idea is gaining ac-
ceptance in the mainstream of the
American psyche, but only a few are
actually taking active steps against
the menace. Even fewer realize the
tremendous struggle that we have as
a people to alter the course of
history and overcome the pride of a
nation.
From the time of the Pilgrims, we
have taken what we wanted, used
r
what we needed, and done as we
pleased with our world, regardless
of the consequences. We have
achieved the highest standard of liv-
ing in the world with disregard for
the very thing that gives us life �
our planet. Live for today � tomor-
row may never come! Well, tomor-
row has come and it's time for us to
accept the responsibility we ha e to
each other and to our world.
The news of the tragedy in Love
Canal at beautiful Niagara Falls, the
honeymooners' paradise, is a loom-
ing example. While we ponder
nuclear proliferation and its waste
disposal, the ghosts of industry's
negligent past leap out at us from
the headlines of this week's
newspapers. More than a thousand
families forced to leave their homes,
little children slowly dying, and the
possible damage to future genera-
tions of 30 percent of the population
tested, are statistics that cannot be
swept under the rug. Even though
things are serious on the foreign
front, the crisis within our country
will not go away, no matter how
long we ignore it.
William T. Love, a turn-of-the-
century entrepreneur, built the
canal, and from 1940 to 1978, the
Hooker Chemical and Plastics
Company, a division of Occidental
Petroleum, used the site as a waste
dump. The company dumped nearly
20,000 tons of solvents, pesticides
i
and other toxic chemicals, including
hundreds of pounds of dioxiri, one
of the most toxic substances known
to man. In 1978 Hooker Chemical
filled in the canal and sold the pro-
perty to the community, which con-
structed an elementary school and
homes. Such are corporate ethics.
The New York State Health
Department declared the area a
"health emergency" and the EPA
solicited the Biogenics Corporation
of Houston to test for chromosomal
damage. In 11 of 36 subjects tested,
the corporation found a type of
chromosomal damage associated
with spontaneous abortions, birth
defects and cancer, Barbara Blum
deputy administrator of EPA,
stated that Love Canal "is one of
the worst chemical problems we
have discovered in moden society
The results were returned to the
community recently. "They just
said my chromosomes were abnor-
mal and handed me a letter said
Patricia Sandonato, one resident
found to have damage. "I asked if it
affected my kids, and they said they
did not know. I fear that my kids
might be dying Mrs. Sandonato's
son, five-year-old Jason, was born
with "minimal brain dysfunction"
and will undergo an operation soon
for a deformity in one of his knees.
Donald L. Baeder, president of
Hooker Chemical, predictably
answered that tne results were
4
conclusive This effort by Baeder
was in the finest spirit of corporate
tradition. It ranks up there with,
"There has never been a serious ac-
cident at a nuclear reactor and "It
has yet to be proven that there is a.
significant hnk between cigarette
smoking and cancer Until the
federal and New York state govern-
ments agreed to foot the bill, the
company was concerned with possi-
ble lawsuits for the relocation of
Love Canal residents.
Now that the residents can leave
their contaminated community,
Hooker Chemical must pay for the
five that have been and might be
rmaed by their careless treatment of

PIL
Music From Beyond
Continued From Page 5
Flogging a Dead Horse.) The Sex
Pistols were doomed to self-
destruction as soon as they became
everything that they hated in the
hands of Malcolm McLaren, en-
trepreneur extraordinaire.
It also seemed to be much more
than fate that their gradual
disintegration culminated as they
split up on their highly touted but
ill-fated American tour. Johnny
Lydon, better known as Johnny
Rotten, became convinced that the
Sex Pistols had "finished rock 'n'
roll" by crashing through every
boundary and limitations that good
sense dictates. He had decided to
transcend the limitations of rock
and produce a type of music that the
world has never known, which he
referred to as anti-rock.
Johnny Lydon returned to
England right in the midst of the Sex
Pistols American tour and pursued
his dream by establishing his own
group, Public Image, Ltd an inter-
national pun. He solicited guitarist
Keith levine from the then assembl-
ing Clash (and creafed Strummer
Jones), and the existential rhythmist
Wobble, presenting perhaps the
premier three piece combo in the
world. They recorded the truly uni-
que effort entitled Metal Box, so
called because it was released as
three twelve inch forty-fives encased
in a film canister, but the record
never sold because of its cost and
impracticality.
Perhaps the only efficient way to
appreciate PIL's music is to engage
in what psychologist Carl Rogers
refers to as "active listening" just as
one must do with jazz, classical, or
for that matter even the Sex Pistols.
This is not music that you put on at
a soiree as you casually discuss in-
flation or megalomania, it is
something that must be pursued ac-
tively in order to fully concep-
tualize. It draws one into a sort of
"dancetrance" that requires com-
mittment in totality, or none at all.
PIL's Metal Box has been
repackaged as a traditional two
album set and rereleased as Second
Edition, and to quote Lester Bangs
it is "the first music of the
eighties It has been called
"anti-rock "too arty Art rock
"plague music or "disco-dub
but none can deny that it is some of
the most impressive music that has
come along since Hendrix. It goes
where music has never gone before,
into the realm that is only occupied
by nightmares and horror show en-
tropy. You can run, but you cannot
hide. (For the grateful dead cult
do acid and listen to this music and
you will surely never return.)
At first acquisition and playing,
the schlock connection was made
for it was torture to submit myself
to such madness, and I was
disgusted with myself for spending
ten dollars on such trash. Im-
mediately however, a startling
paradox overcame me. I was drawn
to the complexity of the album and
yet repelled by its texture. The more
I listened, the more I was cap-
tivated, but too much exposure
would not be facilitative to my men-
tal health.
Not since James White and the
Contortions have I heard music with
such a progressive, avant-garde
sound. Immediately the looping,
dominating bass stuns you into ac-
quiescence for never has there been
a concept of bass in white music
history quite like this. Then the
dangling, jangling guitar enters and
rewrites the role of the electric
guitar in modern music by placing it
in the background supporting the
profound rhythm lead. The psychic
pressure builds as Lydon's sickly,
ethereal vocal track sort of staggers
in lamenting of self-pity and
challenging the very concept of the
lead singer. The music is full of
screeches, cries and utterances that
seem to come from beyond the river
Styx and delve into emotions that
are better left undisturbed.
The music may seem to come
from beyond death, but the lyrics
emanate from the all too real world
that greets us with each rising sun,
the "no-future" of the Sex Pistols
gives way to the no present where we
avoid a world all too complex. From
Public Image LTD's Keith Leveae
the music is full of screeches, cries and utterances.

Bath, N.C is celebrating its
275th year. The town is a state
historic site maintained by the
North Carolina Department of
Cultural Resources and has many
18th and 19th century homes. Not
only does Bath contain the oldest
church in continuous use in the
state, it is also the site of the offical
port of entry for North Carolina.
Among its citizens were three pro-
prietary governors and Edward
Teach, the infamous Blackbeard.
The ECU Division of Continuing
Education, together with the
Historic Bath Commission, the
Committee for an Outdoor Drama
Inc. and St. Thomas Episcopal
Church, is presenting a symposium
on July 26, 1980 on the town of
Bath and its history.
The program is an all-day affair
that will feature two speakers and a
tour of some old homes and the
church. Also included in the sym-
posium is a performance of the play
"Blackbeard: Knight of the Black
Flag The tours will be more in-
depth than the normal tours, and
the church will have more artifacts
on display than usual. Members of
the "Blackbeard" cast will provide
background information on the play
and a behind-the-scenes look at the
production.
Dr. Thomas Parramore, a
Meredith College faculty member,
will present a talk on Bath in its
historical perspective. Dr. Par-
ramore is a recognized authority on
the history of Eastern North
Carolina.
Michael Smith of the State
Department of Archives and
History in Raleigh, will speak
A face is raining
Across the border

The same as murder
The horror is unrelenting.

maybe not even anybody but it
may be for you. If you get a chance,

features ex-Not Ready
