Transit Management Inquiry Under Way
New r (iitur
An inquiry into the management
practices of two former SGA transit
managers has been authorized, ac-
cording to Dr. Elmer Meyer, vice
chancellor for Student Life.
The inquiry was initiated by SGA
President Charlie Sherrod, who
thinks that transit records were
destroyed or removed from their
Mendenhall office following Sher-
rod's replacement of former transit
co-managers Chubby Abshire and
I eonard Fleming with two new ap-
According to Sherrod. shredded
transit documents that were found
in the office were later taken bv a
janitor, so the prime evidence in the
case is no longer available.
Abshire and Fleming deny that
any official transit records were
tampered with and say that shredd-
ed documents that were found were
items of only personal concern to
them. For instance, Fleming said
last week that he removed papers
related to a private study of the
University of Maryland Transit
System he conducted last year.
Sherrod said Tuesday that an
audit would be conducted on the
transit books and that he was
gathering written statements of in-
dividuals who may have releant in-
formation concerning the matter.
Fleming said Wednesday that he
was "not worried in the least"
about the inquiry, but said that the
audit should also be done on the
manager that preceded him in the
transit system, to provide a basis for
comparison of management prac-
Meyer said that the inquiry was
being conducted under the auspices
of James Mallory of the Student Af-
fairs office. Mallory could not be
reached for comment Wednesday.
Sherrod said that there would be a
full disclosure of the findings of the
inquiry but did not say when the fin-
dings would be available.
Abshire and Fleming were replac-
ed b Nicky Francis and Danny
O'Connor after Sherrod was elected
SGA president in early May.

years, according to a new study.
The study, conducted by Univer-
sity of Michigan psychologists
Lloyd Johnston, Patrick O'Malley
and Jerald Bachman, discovered
that some 75 percent of the 17,000
high school seniors surveyed disap-
proved of using illicit drugs, except
marijuana. Over 90 percent of the
seniors frowned on regular use of
cocaine, heroin, FSD, am-
phetamines or barbiturates.

Confidential Loans
The director of ECL's financial
aid office said Tuesday that applica-
tions for student aid have increased
35 percent over last year.
Robert Boudreaux, director of
financial aid, said that his office has
received 4,473 applications so far
this year, compared to a total of
about 3,000 last year.
"Last year at this time, we had
processed and mailed out 1,232
awards for financial aid said
Boudreaux. "This year, we've mail-
ed out about 1,000 awards, but we
have four more drawers of applica-

ECU students appear to be
strongly in favor of the SGA's Con-
fidential Loan fund, according to a
poll conducted by The East Caroli-
Seventy-two percent of those
questioned favored the fund, which
is used to provide six-month,
interest-free loans of up to $150 for
the termination or continuation of
pregnancies. It is available to both
men and women.
While a poll population of 60
students is too small to draw any
definite conclusions, it does indicate
the way students feel about the pro-
SGA President Charlie Sherrod
said recently that the only way the
SGA would abolish the fund is if an
overwhelming number of students
felt it was wrong and should be
discontinued. He added that he has
been in student government for
three years, and no one had ever
said anything like that to him.
The poll was composed of 48 per-
cent males and 52 percent females.
By class, 3 percent were freshmen,
22 percent sophomores, 35 percent
juniors, 33 percent seniors and 7
percent graduate students.
The biggest complaint raised by
those supporting the fund was that
it is under the control of the SGA
treasurer. While the treasurer does
not make a moral judgement in the
administration of the loan fund, ac-
cording to Kirk Little, SGA
treasurer, several respondents felt
the temptation for either moral
judgements or "leaks" of informa-
tion about those receiving loans is
too great. Twelve percent expressed
dissatisfaction with having to go to
another student for such aid. "It's
embarassing enough to need the
loan, and 1 would be even more em-
barassed to go before a fellow stu-
dent to get it said one.
Among those opposed to the
fund, the primary reason cited was a
fundamental opposition to abor-
tion. "Abortion is the killing of a
human being, and 1 don't feel the
students should have to pay for it
said one student.
The main reason for support of
the fund is that it is a service to the
"The fund is there so that a
woman has a choice in what she can
do about her pregnancy and is only
used as a matter of personal choice.

Mother Jones Wins National Award

Toxic Chemicals Dumped Abroad
Back in 1977, reporters Mark Dowie
and Tracy Johnston wrote a story for
Mother Jones magazine about the
dangers of the Dalkon Shield, an in-
trauterine device that sickened and even
killed some women. Going over
manufacturers' data a year later, Dowie
noticed that a full million of the con-
traceptive devices were unaccounted-
for. They hadn't been sold to American
women and they weren't in storage in
the United States, either. Intrigued,
Dowie started digging.
The result of his investigation, carried
out with the help of several other
reporters, was a collection of articles
collectively titled "The Corporate Crime
of the Century Published in the
November 1979 issue of Mother Jones,
the articles detailed the "dumping" of
toxic substances banned here �
pesticides, drugs, Dalkon Shields � in
developing countries by U.S. multina-
tional corporations. The expose caused a
firestorm of controversy in the Third
World, sparked proposed legislation
here and won Mother Jones a coveted
National Magazine Award for excellence
in reporting.
Relaxing in the San Francisco office
of Mother Jones, Dowie assayed the
significance of the story. "I just spoke
on the phone with an official from
Angola who read our issue he said,
"and they are going to take a strong
stand against dumping Dowie seemed
pleased. It was in keeping with Mother
Jones' policy of publishing muckraking
that galvanizes readers.
"Even good magazines tend to be
passive in their presentation of informa-
tion Dowie said. "We put our ex-
posures in the hands of people who will
do something about the problems the
stories describe. We hand-delivered
copies of the dumping story to every em-
bassy in Washington, D.C and we told
other people, activist organizations,
about what we found out.
"A lot of periodicals tell you about
the illegal stuff, the guy with his hand in
the till, and so on. That's all well and
good; those stories need to be done. But
our tendency is to focus on practices that
are perfectly legal. By exposing them, we
may be able to inspire legislation and
other changes. That's where reform
comes from
Such legislation was recently introduc-
ed in Congress by Rep. Michael Barnes
(D-Maryland). Barnes' bill, the Hazar-
dous Goods Expou Control Act of
1980, would not ban dumping, but it
would see that governments of Third
World countries are fully informed
about the substances they are importing
and that those substances are duly label-
ed with warnings in the local language.
Dowie, resplendent in a Nicaraguan
army shirt he got from a Sandinista on a
recent trip to Central America, pro-
nounced himself pleased but not
satisfied by the proposed legislation.
"I'm happy it's been introduced and
everything but, speaking frankly, it pro-
bably won't make a hill of shit worth of
"The corporations will get around it.
They're determined to dump the shit and
they'll get rid of it on the side Accor-
ding to Dowie, the end of corporate
dumping, if it occurs, will happen
primarily because of what is done in the
Third World, not what is done here.
"The only way to stop it is for them to
boycott all our products until the bad
ones are pulled off the market. If we
can't alter the supply, maybe they can
alter the demand
Dowie, who doubles as Mother Jones'
publisher, is understandably proud of
the award-winning story. "It's what 1
think investigative reporting should be.
Investigations should be long-term.
They should be deep. They should be
politically motivated. They should be
advocacy journalism
A one-time corporate economist,
Dowie worked for a year on the dump-
ing story. Incredibly, he had no jour-
nalistic experience before he started
writing for Mother Jones four years ago.
"I believe that investigative reporting is
half-psychic and half-photographic, in a
figurative sense he says. "You can
know how to use the typewriter, do in-
terviews, research, but if you don't hae
an eye for the story, you ain't gonna get
it. Having come out of the corpc
world, as I do, I can tell when there's
more to a story, when the data are in-
complete, when something is being held
On Februar 25, 1980 � four months
after the Mother Jones piece appe.
� the Washington Post ran a front
story on corporate dumping that
substantially confirmed what Dowie and
company had unearthed. Unlike Mother
Jones, the Post stopped short of calling
dumping a crime. "One o the weak

Week in Review,
Saturday Night Live
The violence last week in Miami
could remind some of the sixties,
and it should because little has
changed. The spiritual and emo-
tional catharsis that was the sixties
left us drained and despondent dur-
ing the seventies. During the "big
sleep the problems have not gone
away but have grown more complex
and deeply-rooted with age.
The events of last week are
evidence that the political and social
causes of the sixties are once again
resurrecting at the dawn of this new
decade. The forces of young,
educated whites and poor, poverty-
stricken blacks that created such a
disturbance in the sixties are beginn-
ing to awaken. It was calm last
weekend in Miami, but not in
Sea brook, New Hampshire, where

time in the history of the anti-
nuclear movement, things began to
take a turn.
It was the most violent of five
demonstrations held at the site, a
symbol of the nuclear movement
since 1976. Dayton Duncan, press
secretary to New Hampshire Gover-
nor Hugh Allen, stated that the pro-
testors had pushed and shoved the
police and had "actively thrown

The protestors had good reason
to be perturbed. The Department of
Energy's proposed budget for the
next four years recommends spen-
ding almost twice as much for
nuclear energy and synthetic fuels
than for conservation and solar
energy. Nuclear energy spending
could be close to $10 billion as op-
posed to $3 billion for solar conver-
sion. The upcoming election will do
little to change the oil industry's
stranglehold on our government.
The inner city is even less calm
than it is at Seabrook. The fires that
were burning in Miami may be only
smoldering now, but the hot sparks
will be landing in other cities before
long. Inner cities of the eighties are
plagued with physical and spiritual
decay which festered during the last
The hardest hit by inflation and
unemployment are those least able
to withstand it � the poverty-
stricken individuals within the
socioeconomic prison of the ghetto.
Unemployment among blacks is
twice the national average for
whites, and among black youth it
reaches almost 30 percent. In
Detroit and Philadelphia, two
potential targets for urban unrest,
minority unemployment is about 18
and 16 percent, respectively.
All this unemployment is sup-
posedly a long-range cure for infla-
tion and recession. Bat will the inner
cities be able to withstand the
duress? President Carter's slashes in
programs for social welfare such as
food stamps, health services, and
education should aggravate an
already tenuous situation. Bored,
alienated, and hungry people can
only stand in the streets for so long
before they start grabbing for some
of the good life that is passing them
The traditional method of con-
trolling these dissatisfied peoples,
the urban police force, is making
conditions even more frightening.
The police in Los Angeles,
Houston, Philadelphia and Miami
are under intense national scrutiny
for alleged brutality, prejudice and
injustice. Local communities are
rallying around their boys in blue by
reinforcing their distortions of
authority by dropping criminal
charges for manslaughter, assault
and conspiracy.
Further complicating the condi-
tion of blacks and Hispanics is the
remarkable way we fed bound to
support homeless refugees from
Vietnam and Cuba by giving away
another slice of the American pie.
They are distressed because we are
giving away their piece, and there's
not that much to go around.

you so much trouble during the six-
ties � young whites and poor blacks
� have not gotten any wiser, and
now they're madder than ever. The
administration might believe the on-
ly way out of this economic dilem-
ma is a war, but they had better con-
sider who they could be fighting.

Knobs Play The Attic,
Considered By Union
Staff Writer
On Sunday night, May 18, at the
Attic, something worth talking
about happened. It is as important
in its way as the building of roads
as to Imperial Rome. The
Fabulous Knobs, a band from
Raleigh and one of the groups being
considered by the Student Union
Major Attractions Committee for
the first summer concert in Wright
Auditorium, visited and brought
with them their own brand of the
new music that is changing the
musical tastes of the nation.
Whether it is called New Wave or
shock rock or whatever, it still
comes down to one thing, and that
is finely crafted music that is as
original and energetic as the sounds
that characterized the sixties. The
Fabulous Knobs walked into the At-
tic and played some of the best
dance music that has been heard in
Greenville in many years. It had the
energy of rock and roll, the depth of
the blues and the power of soul.
What it amounted to was that the
feet kept moving, and kept moving
and kept moving. You get the idea.
Guitarists Varied Attack
The lead vocals were carried by
the beautiful Debra DeMilo. She
combined beauty, wit and a voice
that ranged from lyrical to over-
powering in a stage presence that
was truly a delight to view. Also, it
was the first time that I have seen
the tambourine played so that it was
an actual part of the ensemble.
Debra is the consummate singer.
Backing Debra DeMilo on vocals
and playing the drums was Terry
Anderson. His style was very fluid
and more flexible than that of a
rock drummer. His drum play
coupled with the driving rhythms of
Jack Cornell on bass, fired the
group and the crowd with Pro-
methean energy. The band never
stopped, and once the crowd caught
on, the dancing never stopped
either. Besides Jack's bass playing,
he also backed Debra in the vocals.
Overpowering Presence
The two guitars were played by
Bob Wallace and David Enloe. The
two guitarists varied their attack
with opposing styles that com-
plemented one another rather than
detracted as would be expected.
Their versions of such R&B classics
as "Runaway" became their own as
they individualized them with clean
guitar work and highlighted them
with Debra DeMilo's highly stylized
vocals. The crowd shook, rattled
and rolled.
According to Bob Wallace, the
Fabulous Knobs were formed just
about two years ago. The musicians
come from backgrounds as diverse
as country and disco, but they
merge into a cohesive, tight band
that plays a brand of R&B that is as
distinctive as their name.
But of more interest to the reader
is "when will the Fabulous Knobs
return to Greenville?" According to
Bob Wallace they think they will be
able to return sometime in the in-
definite future. Perhaps if your
curiosity is piqued, if you were
unlucky enough to miss the
Fabulous Knobs, you might men-
tion to Tom Haines at the Attic that
a return engagement would not be
too out of line.
This weekend in Raleigh at the
Cafe Deja Vu the Fabulous Knobs
will return to a typically packed
house where they will be surrounded
by the fans who have grown with
them and believe that they are going
That is why the sense of urgency.

Go Fishing!
It's Cheaper
Than A Shrink
Wiiunt traturrs Kditor
No human activity requires more patience than the
pursuit of the Pisces. No other endeavor offers as
much opportunity for meditation on the nature of the
universe or for just plain relaxation. Aside from the
game-fishing that Hemingway used as a therapy, there
is no less strenuous sport in the world of athletics.
Eastern North Carolina offers the angler a wide
choice of outlets for his activity. He can use the many
rivers and streams in the area for the pursuit of the
large-mouth bass or he can strive with the wily King
Mackerel on the outer banks, either in the surf or off-
shore in one of the party boats that thrive in the sea
ports from Elizabeth City to Wilmington. Equipment
is as cheap as a cane pole and a worm or as expensive
as a salt water rod and a Mitchell 907 reel. The
satisfaction derived is not a function of the expense at
all. It is rather a more delicate balance of mood and
weather and the hunger and gullibility of the fish.
Many a true angler has come back from a sojourn
without a single fish and yet strangely satisfied with
the day's events. The real goals and rewards of fishing
are not the capture of a certain number and weight of
fish. The true reward is the peace and solitude that
fishing not only affords but demands and that which
makes the sport so enjoyable. Food, the by-product of
angling, is an enjoyable side effect that many anglers
use as an excuse to spouses and colleagues for the pur-
suit of their particular happiness.
For centuries fishing was work that provided food
for the tables of the working classes and the nobility
that could afford to buy the fruits of the efforts of the
working fisherman. Around the 16th century, angling
became an avocation for the upper classes. Issak
Walton, the 17th century biographer, gave the
Renaissance Englishman a guidebook to this
fascinating hobby, "The Compleat Angler Fishing
was considered a marvelous way to escape the
pressures that the Renaissance had brought to a
relatively simple lifestyle.
Twentieth century American society is in even more
dire need of the salvation that fishing offers than ever
was the 17th century. Americans are too concerned
with getting and spending to take time for relaxation,
and it shows in the number of Americans who consult
a psychotherapist or go off the deep end and commit

For a short time after the Old Man dies and the maid has
packed her things and gone, Chance the gardener remains in the
big old town house, alone behind the high brick wall with his
well-tended plants and shrubs and his brightly colored, ever-
shifting images on television.
But then the lawyer comes and tells Chance that he must
leave. And so, neatly dressed in the Old Man's finest things, he
walks out of the shuttered house in which he has spent his entire
conscious life and into the urban blight of modern Washington
and then into the life of Benjamin Rand, the richest, most
powerful businessman in all of America.
How Chance the gardener becomes overnight Chauncey Gar-
diner, friend of diplomats, confidant of the president, passive
lover of the vivacious Eve (Rand's wife), is the substance of Hal
Ashby's "Being There a socialpoliticalsexual satire of
almost heroic understatement and restrained hilarity.
Chance becomes the Rands' houseguest quite appropriately
by accident, an accident with the rear bumper of Eve's
chauffeur-driven car, and both of the Rands are immediately
taken with his utter lack of pretense, a directness, a refreshing
simplicity � that, in fact, exactly expresses the
simplemindedness beneath.
Sometimes this resembles the most courageous tactfulness as
when he informs the ancient, ailing Benjamin point-blank that
he is dying. Sometimes it approaches the mutely ludicrous,
which is tne case when he matches the knife that a gang of
youths pull on him with a TV remote-control device, desperately
trying to change the channel and rid himself of the threatening
images that confront him in real life. In another scene, he cannot
keep from imitating the yoga exercises demonstrated on the
television sets everywhere he turns.
But it all merely hides a mindless void that nobody seems able
to penetrate because nobody is sufficiently stupid. So, when the
president asks him his estimate of the current miserable Wall
Street "season" and Chance answers that in the garden there are
several seasons, but "as long as the roots are not severed, all is
well everyone assumes he is making pastoral metaphors
about the economy, when in fact he is talking about all he knows
outside of television, which is gardening.
Throughout its more than two hours, "Being There" is a

movie, because after Benjamin dies
and the president reads from his
writings at the funeral, you begin to
understand why Chance's homilies
find such ready sympathy in their
But the joke depends upon certain
assumptions. Chance is wholly a
literary creation, combining as he
ioes nearly total innocence with in-
tuitive charm and � though he can
neither read nor write � a standard
American stage diction, presumably
learned from listening to an-
nouncers on TV. Sometimes the
assumptions are pushed a little too
As ChanceChauncey, Peter
Sellers has refined a caricature down
to an almost seamless surface ot
kindly, gentle poise and quiet good
taste. He gives a far better perfor-
mance in a far more demanding role
than does Dustin Hoffman in his
Academv Award winning capacity
in last vear's "Kramer vs. Kramer
If this character has emerged before
in the Sellers repertoire, it is hard to
remember where. But it is the
perfect realization of the
distinguished cipher at the center of
Jerzy Kosinski's novel of the same
name. Kosinski has expressed on
talk shows that he is very happy
with the representation of his pro-
tagonist � if anything, he should be
a little disgruntled with his own
work. Kosinski is credited with
writing the screenplay for "Being
There" from his novel, and for once
the movie script seems not only bet-
ter but the Sellers character seems
more complete than the Kosinski
Sellers has added a lot to Chance
to flesh out the idea � and a lot has
been added to everything surroun-
ding Chance to make that basic idea
live. Shirley MacLaine's Eve, Jack
Warden's president, Richard
Dysart's Dr. Allenby (Rand's atten-
ding physicirn and the only one to
penetrate Chance's unwitting cover)
� all promote an aura of more or
less competent sanity to balance the
subdued lunacy in their midst.
But Melvyn Douglas, as old Ben-
jamin Rand, goes a measure beyond
that. It is his trust � more than his
wife's lust and everyone else's
gullibility � that certifies
Chauncey. As the most benign of
superrich and superpowerful
capitalists, Douglas actually suc-
ceeds in making that trust seem
reasonable � or, at least, one based
on the recognition of a soul com-
mon to everybody, including the
well-dressed, TV-nurtured plant life
standing by his deathbed. The Best
Supporting Actor Award given
Douglas by the Academy this year
was one of the few well deserved
compliments payed an actor during
Hollywood's night of nights.
The rich, somber look of "Being
There much of it shot in a sump-
tuous old North Carolina mansion
in Ashville supposedly placed down
the avenue from the White House in
the context of the film, exactly fits
the tone of a satire so fiendishly
decorous as sometimes hardly to
seem satire at all.
Now that the summer is here, many ECU
students are faced with the task of decorating
their new residences. The job of making your new
room feel like home can actually be more trouble
than moving into the place.
Problems can arise almost immediately upon
reaching your room. For instance, you may be
sleeping on the floor, depending upon whether or
not the previous occupant took the furniture with
him when he left. Or, the former resident may
have gotten a good bargain on discontinued col-
ors of paint and done the room in hot pink or
electric yellow-green.
To solve your furniture problems, you d better
start shopping early - Greenville's dumpsters
have only so much in stock, you know. If you are
lucky, you may find a nice assortment of not-too-
broken furniture and the ever-adaptable card-
board boxes (hopefully without anything gross
spilled on them). Cardboard boxes make great
bookshelves and are fine for tables, if you don t
put anything too heavy on them.
Solving the problem of your room s color is a
lot easier � just cover the entire wall with posters
like I do. Masking tape is much cheaper than
Many students build various types of bed plat-
forms in their rooms. Some are master
carpenters, and their well-constructed platforms
are an attractive room feature as well as a great
space saver. On the other hand, some students
aren't master or even apprentice carpenters, in
rooms where these people have built platforms,
remember not to lean on the posts or sleep within
the probable collapse zone.
Another problem with platforms and bunk
beds as well is that of getting up to the bed itselt
Most people don't use the obvious solution ot
building a ladder but instead climb up on a table
or dresser. This can result in footprints all over
your furniture, not to mention your dishes,
jewelry stereo or whatever else you keep on top
of your' dresser. Climbing up after a party could
result in breaking one or more of your bones.
Personally, I usually am content to leave the bed
like it is when 1 get to the room. I m just lazy, I
gUlt'Ss really fascinating how much someone's
personality is revealed by how he or she fixes up a
room. Everyone leaves some sort of mark in a
room as a sign of their occupancy - cigarette
burns, unidentified stains on the rug, obscene
words written on the wall, broken windows,
scorch marks on the door and sometimes even
Many rooms off campus contain an entire
history easily readable to the intelligent observer.
I'm spending the summer in a fraternity house
that rents extra rooms to, among other in need,
impecunious art students such as myself. The
huge size of the room, the lofty ceiling the
fireplace and the ornate moldings and doors show
that the room was built back when they were
building them like they used to. The relentless
bright yellow-green pain all over the lofty ceiling,
fireplace and the ornate moldings and doors bears
mute testimony to the mansion's days as a hippie
house. Since they didn't paint the bricks in the
fireplace, the floor and one of the doorknobs
one may deduce that the painters either ran out ot
paint (thank goodness!) or that they passed out
A Budweiser poster on the wall is a good sign ot
later occupation by a fraternity member (or a
dorm student or an ECU day student - in fact, it
could have been a hippie who liked beer). 1 he
knee-deep pile of flotsam and jetsam Hooding
one end of the room is a dead giveaway ot my
presence, as is a giant collage of posters, drawings
and oddments forming on the wall.
The walls of the room are the most revealing
sign of the occupant's personality. For instance,
lots of fist-sized holes are an indication of abac
temper. A large, irregular gap in die wall shows
that an amateur interior designer decided that
another door was necessary and that an axe could
solve the problem.
Posters and pictures are more common on peo-
ple's walls than holes, a fact that I'm sure makes
landlords happy. Those various bits ot art taped,
tacked slued andor nailed to the walls are what
really gives each room its own distinct personali-

Americans need to sit
still along the bank of a

a line in the water and
time to spend just

not afford not to take

that is very difficult to
regain once lost.
No politician should

that he is a fisherman.
Only a man who has

University ad-
ministrators should all
be fishermen. Fishing
and the contemplation
that it brings breeds a
wisdom that no amount
of Plato or Emerson
can. Every college and
university worth their
salt should offer a
course in the art of
angling. It should be re-
quired along with
freshman composition
and library science. The
benefits derived from
this course would be
manifold. Students and
professors alike would
gain insight of
themselves and a new
patience in their deal-
ings with each other.
