WASHINGTON,
D.C. (CH) - Black
college students "are
subjected to extraor-
dinary pressures" at
predominantly white
institutions and often
lack the academic
preparation to do well,
according to a recent
government study.
The survey of black
students and black and
white administrators
and faculty members
took place at four
private and three public
universities in different
regions of the country.
It sought to identify
problems with black
undergraduate attrition
rates.
All three groups of
surveyed subjects
agreed that poor secon-
dary school prepara-
tion was a major bar-
rier to college admis-
sion for blacks, but
black students and ad-
ministrators also said
inadequate financial
loneliness were a deter-
rent to staying in
school. While per-
cent of black faculty
and administrators
aid was an important agreed, only 60 percent
problem. Seventy-seven of white faculty and ad-
percent of the students ministrators saw that as
thought that feelings of a problem,
alienation and Both black students
and staff felt the need
for a greater number of
black administrative
and faculty role
models, compared with
a 68 percent response
from whites.
The study, commis-
sioned by the National
Advisory Committee
on Black Higher
Education and the
Department ot Health.
Education and
Welfare, advised
universities to recruit
black students from
"underachieving,
inner-city high
schools'

aerospace studies in the
ECU ROTC program.
In exchange for the
security, ROTC
recruits obligate
themselves to special
classes and labs, a pre-
junior year summer
camp, drills, discipline
and, eventually, four
years of service in the
Air Force.
Of course, there are
benefits. Recruits who
make it through to the

THE LATEST IN STUDENT CASUAL WEAR:
loose, green surgical uniforms. Students say
they're comfortable and functional, as well as in
vogue. The fashion fad isn't eyed with en-
thusiasm by hospital administrators, however,
since many of the scrub suits seen on campus were
presumabtv-swiped. Recently, two Universtiy of
Kentucky students were fined $100 after pleading
guilty to stealing a supply of surgical garb.
IT WASN'T APRIL FOOLS DAY and the
chartered busload of Purdue fraternity members
had no reason to doubt the authenticity of the in-
vitation. They arrived at a fancy Chicago hotel
and were handed prearranged room keys along
with tickets for an "awards banquet Supposed-
ly, they were being honored for being named an
outstanding chapter by some obscure national
organization. But as they looked through their
envelopes of instructions and free bar tickets,
they came across the message: "This is one of the
greatest and most successful hoaxes in history.
Signed, the Pledge Class
STUDENTS ARE OPTIMISTIC about mar-
riage. A recent journalism class survey of Iowa
State University students found that 90 percent of
single students expect their marriages to last a
lifetime.
A RICHARD PRYOR VIDEO TAPE was con-
fiscated by the Georgia Southern College ad-
ministration, after it ran on campus for almost a
week The tape was described by a school official
as "lewd, obscene and not suitable to be shown in

Roger M. Bullock,
assistant manager of
the ECU Student Supp-
ly Store.
The biggest problem
Bullock sees would be
convincing faculty to
go along with the re-
quirements of such a
program, including us-
ing only one text for all
sections of a course and
keeping the same one
for two or three years.
He also recognizes pro-
blems in setting the fee,
the time limit and what
books would be
covered by the pro-
gram.
Bullock said he
believes the program
has merits but added
that most students can
save a considerable
amount of money when
buying books if they
would buy used ones
and sell as many as
possible at the end of
the term.

"The camera enables
the surgeons and
students to study
surgery from different
and better angles
says David Balch, assis-
tant director of the
Audio-Visual Services
Center at the medical
school. "By using the
camera to tape pro-
cedures and viewing the
tapes, faculty physi-
cians have the freedom
and time to explain
complicated methods in
greater detail
Balch designed the
system in consultation
with Dr. Walter J.
Pories, chairman of
surgery. The camera
and one microphone
are mounted in the ceil-
ing of the room. Two
additional microphones
may be worn by
members of the surgical
team to record their
comments during the
operation.
A technician
operates the camera
and microphone from a
"control room" across
the hall from operating
room 3. The technician
is able to respond to the
surgeon's request for
close-up shots, wide
shots and other specific
views of the operation.
Most operations will
be watched "live"
from closed-circuit
monitors in the educa-
tional lounge, the
' auditorium and the
obstetricsgynecology
lounge. Balch says pro-
cedures recorded for
delayed viewing are
watched on monitors in
the second and third-
floor classrooms and in
surgeon's lounge.
By using the camera
as a teaching tool,
Pories says students
and residents can get a
first-hand look at
operations without the
hazard of contamina-
tion to the patient and
without interfering
with surgical pro-
cedures.
"This camera also
will be especially useful
in emergency situa-
tions says Pories.
"Because it has the
capability of instant
replay, the environ-
ment and reactions in
an emergency situation

Ninety-two percent
of the respondents to a
poll conducted by the
Carolina Motor Club
say they have changed
iheir driving practices
as a result of the in-
creased cost o f
gasoline, and 72 per-
cent said it would affect
their vacation plans this
summer.
Thirty-four percent
of the respondents
answering the club's
questionnaire indicated
they had reduced their
overall driving by at
east 25 percent. Fifteen
percent said they had
cut back 20 percent and
eighteen percent of the
replies indicated a 15
percent reduction.
The survey also
showed that 72 percent
of the respondents
believed that the
federal government is
guilty of
"over-regulating" the
automobile industry.
According to the
president of the
organization, T. Ed
Pickard, it was the
largest reply to the
group's annual survey
in recent years.
Other survey results
included: 90 percent
favor service stations
posting prices for all
grades of gasoline so
that the prices would be
legible from the street
or highway; 62 percent
felt that in the event of
another fuel shortage a
system should be devis-
ed to require half the
service stations in the
two-state area to re-
main open on Satur-
days and the other half
on Sundays and
holidays.

Campus Arrests
Students Caught In 'Gray Area
Two students who recently were
stopped by a campus security of-
ficer for no reason and ended up in
court were victims of an overzealous
public servant with a "gray area" of
the law on his side. That one of the
students was found not guilty
should prompt serious questions
from administrators and students
concerning the performance of the
campus police department.
Neither of the students was
breaking laws or acting suspicious
when asked for student identifica-
tion by a security officer in plain
clothes. Both of the students pro-
tested (one physically) the request
and both were arrested. There is a
rule at ECU that requires a student
to show his identification if re-
quested to do so by any university
official, but that rule was not
established to give anyone the right
to make random checks for student
status. Nevertheless, both students
should have produced their IDs.
When a police officer is wearing
plain clothes, it is standard practice,
and in some states law, for the of-
ficer to properly identify himself.
Proper identification does not mean
a quick flash of the badge, as was
the case with the campus security
officer. The officer should have
shown his identification card in ad-
dition to his badge. This practice
prevents the impersonation of an
officer with the use of a phony
badge.
According to law, a police officer
can detain someone legally only if
he has probable cause; that is, if the
officer has a good reason to believe
a person has committed a crime. An
officer can also stop and frisk so-
meone who he believes is carrying a
weapon. Neither of these cir-
cumstances was established in the
case at hand, and no other charge
except disorderly conduct (and in
one case resisting arrest) was made.
If this were a period of campus
unrest, or if a mad rapist were on
the loose, or if any other unusual
situation were prevalent, the of-
ficer's actions would be perfectly
understandable or justifiable;
however, none of these situations
existed at the time of the incident.
The officer apparently acted on
some kind of "sixth sense" when he
stopped the students.
Instead of maintaining order on
campus, the officer disrupted order.
One of the students was found not
guilty, but the other was fined $109
and forced to pay $30 to replace the
policeman's pants, which were torn
in the scuffle. That student obvious-
ly broke the law, but what about the
security officer? Did he have to
prove a "probable cause" for stop-
ping the students? No law would
have been broken had the officer
not been looking for trouble.
Students should show their IDs
whenever a university official asks,
but campus security officers should
not misuse the privilege. Experi-
enced officers should realize that
when a person is NOT breaking the
law, he resents being treated like a
criminal. The state or the university
should take steps to illuminate this
gray area to afcoid further un-
necessary hassles.
Is Loan Fund 'Confidential?'
A poll recently conducted by The
East Carolinian showed students,
strongly in favor of the SGA Con-
fidential Loan Fund, but 12 percent
of the students opposed having to
go to another student for the aid. In
the March 18 edition, this
newspaper suggested that students
seeking loan funds should not be
forced to ask a fellow student, the
SGA treasurer, for a confidential
loan, and we continue to question
this practice.
Now that abortions are legal in
this state, more and more women
are choosing to terminate unwanted
pregnancies. At East Carolina, a
confidential loan is made from stu-
dent fees for this purpose. The loan
can also be used to pay for medical
bills if a student decides to go
through with the pregnancy. The
loan fund provides six-month,
interest-free loans of up to $150 and
is available to men and women.
To be eligible for a loan, the stu-
dent must get medical confirmation
of her pregnancy, and receive
counseling from the ECU Counsel-
ing Center. The student then goes to
the SGA treasurer for approval of
the loan. This procedure is fine until
the student has to face a fellow stu-
dent with a personal problem. It
would be a great temptation for a
female student to turn and run
rather than divulge such personal
information to someone her own
age, someone she doesn't even
know. And for the last few years the
treasurer has been a male.
Why must the treasurer see the
student to approve the loan? Ob-
viously the treasurer must approve
all funds that are spent by the SGA;
however, according to a former
treasurer, the loan cannot be denied
as long as the medical and counsel-
ing confirmations are in order. If
this is true, why must the treasurer
even know the student's name? One
SGA officer who had to fill in for
the treasurer to sign loan forms ad-
mitted that he was embarrassed,
that he did not want to see the girls,
and that he felt he had no right to
know their names. Imagine how the
applicants felt.
Perhaps the greatest deterrent in
having a loan approved is the ques-
tion of confidentiality. Doctors and
counselors are trained professionals
and understand the importance of
privacy in these matters, but SGA
treasurers are just regular students.
This isn't a just regular problem.
One solution to this practice
could be to eliminate the face-to-
face meeting between the SGA of-
ficer and the student. Once the stu-
dent has the proper documentation,
a counseling official could submit
the loan for approval. If any iden-
tification is required to ensure
repayment, a social security number
should be satisfactory because the
student's name is in the confidential
files at the Counseling Center.
The problem with the loan fund is
a very simple one compared to the
problem of pregnancy. The SGA
should consider changing its pro-
cedures for obtaining a confidential
loan. That would solve one problem
and make the other a little more
bearable.

'Gambling Senators' Questioned
.PAip vJ0tf5 'lt
?�?
Aid Approved For Nicaragua
By RICHARD GREEN
General Master
In a recent news release, Sen. Jesse
Helms chastised the "gambling senators"
for approving $75 million in aid for
Nicaragua, which he calls "a communist
regime It never ceases to amaze me:
How something earns the label of com-
munism, and how Helms and his ultra-
conservative, pro-big business cohorts
have the gall to do it in the name of
democracy.
How soon it is forgotten that many of
Nicaragua's problems are indirect results
of selfish U.S. government and business
policies over the years. Most people don't
know that an American citizen was once
president of Nicaragua. That's right. In
June 1856, William Walker was elected
president of Nicaragua in a rigged election.
Walker was attracted to Central
America by the many economic oppor-
tunities which already were being exploited
by American and British businesses. His
plans for the friendly little country includ-
ed the legalization of slavery, which had
been abolished in the countries of the
isthmus. Walker was ousted in May 1857,
but the capitalists had achieved a foothold
that has affected Central America to this
day.
The Walker episode is trivial compared
to the ravaging rule of the Somoza family
which began in the 1930s. "Tacho"
Somoza, father of the deposed Anatasio
Somoza, accepted aid from the United
States in exchange for virtual freedom for
American businesses in Nicaragua. But
neither of the tyrants were fools: They
quickly amassed great landholding for-
tunes and ignored the starving masses of
the country.
The United States sat quietly while inno-
cent people were imprisoned and tortured
for having contrary views to the govern-
ment. The episode closely parallels the
Shah's reign of terror in Iran, even down
to eventual defeat by the people. Maybe
some Americans don't agree with the new
Islamic government in Iran or the San-
dinista National Liberation Front, but one
thing is certain: The majority of people in
these countries will be much better off than
they were under rulers supported by the
United States.
Augusto Cesar Sandino, the Nicaraguan
martyr from whom the Sandinitas derived
their name, was considered a communist,
but Sandinistas today are hardly com-
munists in the strictest sense of the term.
According to Sen. Helms, "The Sandinista
regime in Nicaragua has imposed com-
munism thoughout the country. Countless
thousands of political prisoners have been
seized and put in jails. The banks have
been nationalized, farmland has been con-
fiscated, industrial plants have been taken
over Let's examine this "communism
The political prisoners consist mostly of
Somoza's cronies, who grabbed for
Everything the government didn't
monopolize. The banks were nationalized �
to free the little wealth Somoza left behind.
That money is needed desperately to
revitalize the war-ravaged country. The
majority of the farmland in Nicaragua
belonged to Somoza and his supporters,
and it was confiscated to feed starving
men, women and children. Industry was
"taken over" from the monopoly that ex-
isted to provide jobs for unemployed
citizens.
These measures might seem strange to a
conservative capitalist like Sen. Helms, as
does $75 million in aid. What he fails to
realize is that we are partly responsible for
the situation, but lack of conscience is a
stock trait for his kind. Fortunately for the
Nicaraguans, Secretary of State Muskie
convinced a slim majority of senators to
"gamble on the proposition Helms
claims that the money will only aid � not
minimize, as Muskie contends � the
development of communism.
The Sandinistas have been friendly with
Russia and Cuba and have grabbed as
much aid as they could get. That doesn't
mean Nicaragua will become another
Cuba; rather it indicates the desperation of
a poor nation which has struggled for in-
dependence since Spanish rule. It is not
likely that Nicaragua will bow down to
anyone � they want freedom as much
Americans do.
The least the United States can do is of-
fer assistance and good will in hope that
Nicaragua will forgive our ignorance and
selfish capitalist motives of the past.
Seventy-five million dollars is nowhere
close to an equitable settlement, and it will
barely assist in the rebuilding of that coun-
try, but it can't hurt now.
If the United States is to meet the Soviet
challenge, we must treat the our neighbors
to the south as fellow Americans, instead
of pushing them around blindly at the
whims of big business and nearsighted
politicians. In the case of Nicaragua, a
gamble is all we have left.

"Maybe I'm A Communist'
By PATRICK MINGES
Maybe I'm a communist. It's a
frightening realization and certainly not
the kind of thing that would please my
parents. The thought is not of intrinsic
origin, but that certainly did not stop the
witch hunts of Salem or the blacklists of
the fifties. The thought troubles me.
I was first accused of being com-
munist after one of my old frat brothers
read an article that I had written about
running my dog for president. He
shouted, "Gun control! Pat, you're a
fricking communist He used to wear
two forty-fives strapped over his
shoulder, just in case he had trouble.
The trouble he expected would have
come from what he euphemistically call-
ed "niggers and he was fully prepared
to gun them down, in "self defense" of
course.
Recently the possibility once again
confronted me, though this time less
directly. A friend of mine was talking to
another person and simply stated, "He's
an idiot � a damn left-wing, communist
idiot Although I was not being
discussed, the conversation was certainly
directed in my general direction. I got
the message. That individual and I have
sharp ideological differences, mostly
concerning the role of the federal
government in the education of blacks.
All this is beginning to worry me. I
always thought of myself as a staunch
Democrat until recently, when I became
aware of President Carter's fuzzy view
of democratic ideals. He has created a
new form of Democrat, one who seem-
ingly abandons the basic tenets of the
party, that leads Teddy Kennedy and
others to call Carter a 'closet
Republican
Kennedy's campaign is the only thing
keeping me interested in the Democratic
platform because he is waging an im-
possible war to return the party to the
traditional democratic ideology. He is
making some headway because Carter
recently has returned some respect to the
more liberal traditions of the
Democratic party; however, I fear that
Carter's new stance is merely an attempt
to regain' lost support among traditional
Democrats because of the strong threat
proposed by Reagan. It seems purely
political, to be forgotten after the elec-
tion.
The pressing issue of internal pro-
blems has forced me to pursue a more
radical political frame of reference late-
ly. The Citizens Party with its en-
vironmental campaign, seems like a very
positive alternative to the more tradi-
tional parties. The party is having a little
trouble being established in North
Carolina largely because people do not
understand its radical platform. What
people do not understand in political
scenes is usually referred to as com-
munism.
Maybe I am a communist. If a sincere
concern for the welfare of the nation
and its people, an attempt to solve the
energy problem, more employment,
limiting the power of corporations and
returning the integrity of the single vote
are communist tenets, then maybe I am
red. It seems like every one who is not a
redneck is a red. Things seldom change.
What was good for McCarthy is good
for todays ultra-conservatives.
Normally, I wouldn't be concerned
with what others may think, but being
considered a communist could be a
hazard to your health. It doesn't matter
that you are a dedicated citizen, loyal to
the principles of the Constitution and
BUI of Rights, All that matters is that
label. Ask Mike Nathan about it.
Mike Nathan, former chief of
pediatrics at Durham's Lincoln Com-
munity Health Center and faculty
member at Duke Medical School, was
shot through the head last year in
Greensboro as he rushed to the aid of
stricken Bill Sampson, a Harvard
Divinity scholar. Nathan, Sampson,
Cesar Cauce and Sandy Smith were gun-
ned down in cold blood simply because
they were communists. They wonder
what happened to freedom of speech.
What is even more distressing is the
evidence presented recently in the
Village Voice that the group were
possibly victims of a conspiracy that
could have involved the FBI and the
Gteensboro Police. How could a hand-
ful of practically illiterate men pull off a
daring, expertly-planned commando
raid, shoot the leaders of the Com-
munists, and escape through the police
barricade? The men who were captured
and indicted were not the actual
assassins (they escaped) and probably
will be acquitted because the videotapes
do not show them committing the actual
murders. Don't believe me, read it
yourself.
Or as Vernon Jordan as he lies near
death in Fort Wayne, Indiana. vWhat
was his crime? He stood up for the rights
of people to pursue happiness, but he
might have gotten in trouble for pursu-
ing happiness with a rich white lady.
Whatever the reason, he was shot m the
back. Oh, can I get a witness?
In conclusion, let me make one thing
perfectly clear: 1 am not nor have ever
been associated with the Communist
party. I love my country and I love life, I
cannot promote further positive change
in my country if I'm dead, my blood on
the streets. Pray to God for our
deliverance.

Cain Invents Encoder,
Genius With A Heart
By JON YUHAS
s�sl�nl Features Uilor
Charles Cain bears the mantle of
genius with the same affable humor
that characterizes all of his actions.
Ever when he is involved with the
most serious activities, that smile
that at times becomes a boyish grin
is always present.
Besides being a genius (Cain will
tell you that it's hard to eat genius)
he is an inventor, engineer and
president of the company that
markets one of his inventions. The
Cain Encoder, publicized recently
along with its inventor in "Business
Week" and "Popular Science is
developed and marketed by the Cain
Encoder Company that is head-
quartered right here in Greenville.
The device can, when hooked into
any of several communications
systems, read an electric or gas
meter and report the reading and a
number of other bits of informa-
tion, including malfunction and
tampering. The device stands to
save the utilities companies a
substantial amount of money that
can be passed on to the consumer. It
will make time-of-day metering a
possibility without the purchase of
new meters.
The relatively peaceful exterior
gives no hint that inside, Charles
Cain is walking mayhem. No
machine is safe from his careful
scrutiny, which usually involves
dismantling and study of the works.
To be sure, the machine goes back
together again, but only after its
guts are examined and the principle
of its function is understood.
Cain's car is the first hint that he
is not the ordinary businessman he
appears to be. It is a Plymouth
Valiant that looks like it was involv-
ed in a hardware store holdup.
Tools and gadgets of every descrip-
tion fill the back seat and trunk.
"There are old pilots, and
bold pilots, but there are
no old, bold pilots
Cain is a private pilot and has
been flying for over 20 years. He
owns a 1952 Cessna 170B. The
airplane reflects the personality of
its owner in much the same way as
the car does. Outside it looks like a
tail-dragger that has seen too much
hard service as an Alaskan bush
plan, but inside there is a small for-
tune in IFR radio equipment. The
interior of the plane has been largely
refurbished and resembles a
modern, sophisticated aircraft. Cain
refers to himself as "Super
Chicken" when he talks about his
flying. Although he is an expert
pilot and IFR rated, he never flies in
even marginally bad weather.
"There are old pilots, and there are
bold pilots, but there are no old,
bold pilots Charles Cain expects
to get very old.
After any conversation with
Charles Cain, it is hard not to feel
!ike Dr. Watson. Cain, like Sherlock
Holmes, operates on a plane
somehow separate from the one that
ordinary men operate on. His mind
makes imaginative leaps that leave
the mortal behind in a cloud of con-
fused wonder. He is extraordinarily
well-read for an English major, let
alone an engineer. His taste in music
runs to High Opera and his favorite
album is "The Greatest Hits of
1720" which includes "Pacobel's
Canon in D
He can quote Milton,
Shakespeare and Chaucer (in Mid-
dle English of course) as well as read
German, Russian and Latin (some
French, too, enough to translate
French patent law).
He is a fine mechanic and has
done most of the work of converting
his Cessna to IFR himself. He has
singlehandedly kept any number of
cars on the road when they would
otherwise have perished.
The Renaissance Man would cer-
tainly be Charles Cain in this day
and time. He is a sublime blend of
the artist and scientist as well as the
humanist. He moves with grace and
ease among his business partner
Lazard Freres and his less
sophisticated friends such as
reporters from The East Carolinian.
His gift is much more than the sum
of his talents. He is Plato's
philosopher; he has seen the sun and
is come back to the cave to enlighten
the rest of us and yet has not lost
any essence of humanity.
Charles Cain is, besides being a
Renaissance Man, a truly unselfish
friend to many students and faculty
members. He is generous with the
little time that is his own and is
always ready to share his wisdom
and experience with his friends.
Cain's skill as an engineer has
gotten him jobs with such corpora-
tions as North American Rockwell
(working on the guided missile pro-
jects of the sixties) and DuPont,
which is how he ended up here in
Greenville, not exactly the Mecca of
the industrial world. While at Du-
Pont, he developed the Encoder and
so just naturally headquartered his
company here.
Charles Cain's wife is Myra Cain,
the assistant to the vice-chancellor
for academic affairs and an assis-
tant professor of English here at
ECU. They have two children, Meg,
who starts college at Princeton this
fall, and Glenye, who is in the 6th
grade.
Cain earned his bachelor's degree
at Vanderbilt University and his
master's degree at Auburn.

Gay Student Adapts To Life In Straight World
By PAUL COLLINS
Staff Writer
One of the last minorities struggling for its rights to-
day in America is gay people. So much has been written
about gays as a group, yet what does the average person
know about what it is like to be gay? What is a gay per-
son like?
"I've known for so long that I was gay that it seems
like I've always known
The speaker is Jerry, a 22-year-old senior at ECU.
Jerry stands about 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighs in at
about 195 pounds. He looks like a tight end, and in fact,
he played football in high school.
There was a time when Jerry would give himself dates
to change. "1 would say that by such and such a date I
wouldn't be gay anymore Jerry explains. "It never
worked
"I never went through any real trauma about being
gay Jerry comments, "but it wasn't something that
was easy to accept. That's different now
Jerry says that he began to accept the fact that he was
gay during his sophomore year. "Being away from
home for a while took a lot of the pressure away Jerry
explains. "I felt more free to be myself. Today I can
honestly say that I accept my being gay
However, now Jerry looks a little uncomfortable. "I
mean 1 accept it for myself, but that doesn't mean
everybody accepts it or would accept it he says.
There were times, Jerry admits, when he wanted to
tell his parents that he was gay. That was several years
ago "when I was feeling down about things, and I
wanted somebody to understand Jerry says.
He has not felt that need for the past two years. "I
don't feel guilty about it now, and I've come to realize
that it's not that important an aspect of my life. My
friends have helped a lot
Jerry estimates that 50 percent of his close friends are
gay and most of his straight friends know that he is gay.
Jerry told one friend, a girl named Christy, that he was
gay when he felt she was beginning to expect more from
their relationship than he could give. "So I just told her.
She took it well, no hysterics or anything
"For a while he continues, "she tried to change me.
She knows now that she can't Today Jerry considers
Christy his best friend. "Some of my best friends are
women Jerry laughs. "I know that sounds corny, but
it's true. I think a lot of women enjoy being friends with
gay men. There is no sexual pressure, and a woman can
enjoy a gay man's friendship more easily
Jerry has never had any problems in school because
he is gay. He doubts that many people even know.
His job is a different matter, however. Jerry is a
waiter at a local restaurant. "It's a good job. 1 get good
tips, and I keep my private life to myself. They would
fire me if they knew I was gay he states. According to
Jerry, the restaurant has set a precedent in the past of
firing people who are openly gay. "It stinks, but it's not
worth losing my job over he says.
Jerry does not often wonder why he is gay. "Being
gay seems natural to me. 1 don't wonder why I'm left-
handed he shrugs.
Jerry feels that it is just a matter of time before people
understand what being gay really means. "I'm not that
different than anyone else Jerry says. "Prejudice just
takes a long time to erase. Meanwhile, I have my life to

Townshend Bid
Great Success
By PAT MINGES
Staff Writer
Pete Townshend is the quintessential rock hero. He is
the complex genius behind one of the most influential
bands in rock history, The Who. His solo career is one
of the most prestigious that has ever been assembled.
This is the story of his solo efforts, more or less.
Pete was born in London and celebrated his 35th bir-
thday only last Monday week. The kids in school used
to make fun of him because of his long nose (he is "the
beak"), driving him to sublimate this energy through his
guitar. The Who had several modest singles beginning in
1965, but did not achieve major success until they were
seen on the television program "Ready, Set, Go The
Who effort "My Generation which was released in
the same year, was among those songs that changed pop
music to rock music and began the new wave of British
music.
The Who are rock history, producing nearly a dozen
albums in 15 years. They almost ceased their career with
last year's Who Are You because of Keith Moon's death
and the tragedy in Cincinnati. During this period,
Townshend produced the two-magnumn opi Tommy �
the second rock opera in history (Pretty Things S.F.
Sorrow was the first) and Quadrophenia, now showing
at some theaters. Townshend is also one of the most
altruistic of superstars, assiting Joe Walsh, Eric Clapton
and Link Wray when they were down and out and sock-
ing out Abbie Hoffman when he needed it at
Woodstock.
Townshend's solo endeavors began in 1972 with the
release of the very spiritual Who Came First, one of my
all-time favorite albums. Townshend was deeply in the
influence of Meyer Baba, an Indian gum whose
philosophy was "Don't worry; be happy and the
album was dedicated in memorium of Baba. �

s "Empty Glass" pals as closer to the i
the rock scene. With Wagner and the Sex Pistols in

Big Wednesday
Here Monday
In Mendenhall
This Monday night, June 9, at 9 p.m. in Mendenhalls
Hendrix Theater, the Student Union Films Committee
will present the third free film of the summer, "Big
Wednesday starring Jan-Michael Vincent and Gary
Busey. Admission for the film is by Student ID and Ac-
tivity Card or by Mendenhall Student Center Member-
ship Card.
The transition from adolescent to adult, the confron-
tive experiences that mark maturity and the presence of
a lifestyle which flows from true events are the primary
ingredients in "Big Wednesday
"Big Wednesday" is a reflective look at friendship
and the social changes which occur during the 1960's.
The story evolves from director John Milius' past, the
Southern California beach atmosphere and the per-
sonalities who symbolize surfing's renaissance.
It is an accurate representation taken from over two
decades of personal involvement, years that Milius
spent riding waves in California at places like Malibu
and in Haw Ji at Sunset Beach on Oahu's North Shore.
As one of the film industry's most prominent and
gifted screenwriters, Milius' credits include "The Life
and Times of Judge Roy Bean "Dirty Harry
Magnum Force "Jeremiah Johnson "Evel
Knievel" and "Apocalypse Now He became a direc-
tor, he says, to defend his writing.
"Kg Wednesday" is his third film, following
"Dillinger" and the widely acclaimed "The Wind and
the Lion both of which he also wrote.
"Big Wednesday" is the story of three dose friends
who are well-known surfers sharing a lifestyle on the
verge of tremendous change.
The film deals directly with those pivotal moments
which made the �0s unique, particularly with respect to
a system of values that are dose to the core of John
Milius creative sensibilities. The script, written with

riend and fellow surfer Dennis Aaberg, em-
�hasizes the need for a code of honor, for loyalty
tnd for respect.
It is a strong, romantic concept, which brings
he film to its awesome climax, a day unlike any
ther, sweeping clean the time that went before.
"Big Wednesday" is a true story. The cir-
:umstances, though fictionalized, all happened,
md the characters are composites of real people.
It is an insight to John Milius and his pursuit of
ixcellence that "Big Wednesday" is as accurate
as it could possibly be, beginning with the initial
:oncept and following through to the completed
film.
The cast was chosen with deliberate care to
reflect the essence of the surfing subculture dur-
ing the '60s.
Jan-Michael Vincent plays Matt Johnson, the
premier surfer of the group whose life is an exten-
sion of his surfing ability, his adolescence and his
domination of an era.
Vincent, who starred in "Baby Blue Marine
"White Line Fever "Vigilante Force" and
"Damnation Alley has been surfing since the
age of 15, when he would leave school in Han-
ford, California and head for the ocean. He
comes to the role of Matt with ease and deter-
mination, playing a character he understands in a
situation with which he can identify.
"Big Wednesday" is the third major feature
for William Katt, who received outstanding
reviews for his performances in "Carrie" and
"First Love
In "Big Wednesday he plays the part of Jack
Barlow, the most perceptive and sympathetic of
the three friends. A serious surfer since the age of
11, Katt brings a quiet, understated enthusiasm to
his character, giving the part both a personalized
dimension and a defined credibility.
Gary Busey plays Leroy, a character who is
nicknamed "The Masochist and who is the
most uninhibited of the three surfers.
A native of Oklahoma whose assertiveness and
spontaneous energy are the delight of his friends,
Leroy is an especially appropriate role for Busey,
who was born in Goose Creek, Texas, and is mak-
ing his fourth film.
Surfing is the thread of continuity in "Big
Wednesday and it is an element in the film
which has received John Milius' devoted atten-
tion.
Two stars of the film, Jan-Michael Vincent and
William Katt, both surf and do their own surfing
in the movie.
Likewise, Sam Melville and Gary Busey learned
to surf for their parts and numerous surfing stars
appear in "Big Wednesday" as themselves, the
notable standout being Gerry Lopez, who is
featured in a dramatic role as well as in some ex-
traordinary surfing action.
"Big Wednesday" is the most personal film
that John Milius has ever made. It is his honest
appraisal of a decade in transition, the 1960's
seen from a surfer's point of view, and the
challenges that can confront us all.

I can't believe the
Townshend performed
all of the music on the
album, a startling an-
tithesis to The Who's
sound with its mellow,
almost pastoral appeal.
Rough Mix was
Townshend's second
album in which he
shared the spotlight
with fellow mod in-
fluence Ronnie Lane,
one of the originators
of the west London
group The Faces. Lane
is known for his
spirited, countrified
sound that is utterly
without pretense, and
his pairing with the
thinking-man's musi-
cian created an album
that is simple and
beautiful. Lane and
Townshend did rock
out some on this
album, perhaps setting
the tone for this year's
finest new album,
Townshend's Empty
Glass.
The album shows a
tremendous debt to the
Sex Pistols who gave
Townshend a spiritual
and musical rejuvena-
tion. Yet at the same
time, it shows the

worker (Par Carr). The
rock 'n' roll worker

With settings in the
