Protests Spurred by

From The Charlotte Observer
With draft registration expected
to begin next month, anti-draft
groups are planning demonstra-
tions, vigils and civil disobedience
reminescent of the "Hell no, we
won't go days of the Vietnam
Many groups will urge 19- and
20-year-old men not to register.
Other organizations, preferring not
to counsel illegal action, will offer
legal help to those who defy the law.
Still others, particularly religious
pacifist groups, will call on those
who register to sign up as conscien-
tious objectors.
Final congressional action on the
registration plan is expected early
this week. It should be ready for
President Carter's signature by

These include tying up business at

Courthouse Suffers Minor
A minor fire at the Pitt County
Courthouse caused the closing of
county offices and the evacuation of
the jail Monday.
The fire started when an insula-
tion board in a wall was ignited by
heat from a workman cutting steel
beams on the third floor of the
structure, according to Jenness
Allen, Greenville fire chief.
The area under renovation was
the former office of the Pitt County
Board of Education, according to
County Manager Reginald Gray.
The county plans to make another
courtroom out of it.
Approximately 40 prisoners in the
Pitt County Jail were held in N.C.
Department of Corrections buses
until smoke could be cleared from
the jail. The move was a precaution
in case the fire spread, according to
Deputy Sheriff Jackie Moye.
Damage to the structure was
minimal, Gray said, since renova-
tions were underway.
"If we hadn't been working up
there, it really could have been ex-
pensive Gray said. "We had little
damage to the third floor, and the
fourth and second floors suffered
smoke damage only
The Soviet people are fully aware
of the United States' reason for
boycotting the Olympics, according
to Zarubina.
"The Soviet people love sports,
and love competition. When they
were first told of the boycott, they
were shocked, then saddened,
because they knew the Olympics
would not be as exciting with fewer
states competing
"The Olympics are supposed to
be non-political, a place where
athletes of all nations can come and
compete in the spirit of the sport,
rather than politics Mostovets

the first real evidence that ECU is
meeting the objectives set for the
medical school by the General
Assembly and the UNC Board of
Governors said Dean William E.
"The school has a commitment to
train primary care phvsicians, doc-
tors who specialize in family prac-
tice, pediatrics, medicine and
obstetrics and gynecology. We're
proud that the first residents to
complete their graduate training
here are in family practice and that
they will stay in the state to serve
our people
Two of the residents will establish
private practive in Salisbury, N.C,
and one in Greenville. The fourth
resident will join the medical school
faculty as an instructor. One of the
dental residents will open an office
in Henderson, N.C, and the other
will remain at ECU as a clinical staff
Dr. Edwin W. Monroe, associate
dean for external affairs at the
medical school, told the audience
that "in spite of the fact that EC I
will not graduate its first medical
students until 1981, the School of
Medicine has met the goal of train-
ing its first physicians.
"Nearly six years ago when ECU
was authorized to develop a medical
school, most people thought it
would take until the late 1980s
before we would actually produce
any doctors to meet the state's
needs. Now it's only 1980. and
we're turning out highly qualified
family practitioners Monroe said.

The general pro-

research is to collect the
material from the sur-
face of the site, and
measure the surface
distributions. This
determines where test
excavations will be
opened and gives a
sample of the artifacts
contained, and the
depth of the site. Test
excavations can also
determine whether
anything is intact under
the surface. Finally, a
topographic map is
constructed of the site.
Phelps said that "based
on the results of surface
survey, topography and
test excavations, major
areas of the site are
then opened to expose
such cultural features
as house patterns, food
preparation areas,
eemetaries, and public
and religious struc-
tures. It is from these
features in their

Bloxton Change Disputed
Continued From Page 1
lames l.owery, director of the
physical plant, said the move would
be necessary for the Institute of
Coastal and Marine Resources
because the area they now occupy in
Wright needs renovation.
Chancellor Thomas B. Brewer
said Thursday that the decision for
the move was still on the staff level,
with no final decision made.
Bloxton House has been 'unused
for several years. Nothing has gone
on there for several years. That's the
reason the proposal was made
Brewer said.
However, Mrs. Moore said no
one in the administration bothered
to check with them to see if the
building was being used.
"No one in the administration
checked with us to see if it was being
used by us, but assumed it wasn't
since students weren't spending the
night there she said.
"Our accreditation may hinge on
keeping a management facility
Mrs. Moore explained. The building
has been used in the past to train
students in home management,
necessary for some of the school's
major programs.
Friday, however, the administra-
tion advised Mrs. Moore that she
could submit a proposal for con-
tinued use of the facility to the
chancellor's office for considera-
tion. She stated that Brewer seemed
"unaware" that the building was
still used by the school.
She submitted a two and a half
page proposal for use of the facility
to the chancellor Monday, but that
he had not acted on it as yet. Includ-
ed were proposals for increased use
of the house, such as use by
students, faculty and staff for lun-
cheons and dinners and a family
research center.
Administration sources report
that the move has been delayed until
they can further study the issue and
reach a decision.
College Notes
From The National On Campus Report
THE AVERAGE STUDENT spends $83 per term
on 7.5 books, according to a survey conducted
for the Book Industry Student Group Inc the
National Association of College Students Inc.
and the Association of American Publishers.
More than half the students surveyed are financ-
ing their own educations and said they cut down
on expenses by not buying some books for non-
major courses or by purchasing used books.
State U. of New York's Oswego College held
members of the school's student senate hostage
while they read a list of funding demands. The
women, attending a senate budget meeting, were
upset that the center was allocated $2,190 after it
requested $3,875. Eleven women blocked the exits
of the hearing room, detaining senators for a
half-hour while three others stated the center's
of Maryland campus police with a detailed
description of a man wanted for two campus sex-
ual assaults. A sketch of the suspect, based on in-
formation given by a vctim under hypnosis, was
released to the campus community and produced
several leads, say campus police.
THE KU KLUX KLAN mailed leaflets extolling
the virtues of "white Power" and invitations to
join the KKK to U. of Maryland student with
Anglo-Saxon surnames. The Klan material arriv-
ed without stamps, indicating it was mailed on
campus. Students were told to write the KKK
headquarters in Louisiana if they were interested
in joining. Campus police and administrators say
they know of no organized Klan activity at UM.

With A Little Foresight, Analysis
Thanks to Jimmy Carter's poor
evaluation of the U.S. military
machine, millions of young people
will be forced to register for the
draft. Registration may be the only
"quickie" remedy available now,
but a little foresight and analysis
could have prevented two likely
consequences. Our enemies will
perceive registration as a hostile
signal, and the burning issue o(
domestic unrest will probably be
fueled with student protest.
The sad posture of the U.S. Arm-
ed Forces certainly needs straighten-
ing out, but mandatory registration
is not the answer. Increasing the
amount o' well-trained manpower is
crucial, but getting people into the
service isn't the problem � it's get-
ting people to stay in the service.
The average serviceman today is
taking home 11 percent less pay
than he did five years ago, and in-
flation is chipping away at the
already low salaries. Commissary
and PX priveleges are not such a
great bargain anymore, with big dis-
count chains closing in on th
military dollar. Civilian job oppor-
tunities for servicemen trained in
management and technical skills of-
fer substantially greater pa for the
same jobs.
'Why join the service? For main it
is the only way to get on-the-job
traming and to reap the educational
benefits of the GI Bill. President
Carter's educational aid cuts will
only increase the number o tran-
sient military personnel who want a
free education.
Congress must substantially in-
crease pay to people in uniform,
especially those who operate
sophisticated equipment, but in-
creased spending for military
technology is useless without
qualified technicians. Carter and
Congress could have come up with
more than $3.5 billion in pay raises
from a $153.7 billion defense
While the need to update and add
to arms and military machinery
took precedence over pay raises,
more money could've been available
it Carter would can some of the
more idiotic expenditures and leave
Social Security, Medicaid, Welfare,
etc. alone. The Wall Street Journal
listed a few that would make a good
�A service to teach urban wives
"family living' and suburban
homeowners how to kill crabgrass.
�A $98 million program to pro-
mote cooperatives, $27 million for
rural electrification, or $15 million
for bringing cable TV to farms.
� The Department oi Education.
"Nothing it does could not be done
better b long-existent state and
local bodies. The fiscal saving: $3.6
�S7.4 bil'non in CETA funds.
�The Council on Wage and Price
Stability, which costs $9.8 million
only to create the impression the
president is fighting inflation.
�The Congressional Budget Of-
fice (Si3.5 million), set up to help
Congress control the budget, has
done little in its short lifespan.
V ii nam, it wasn't very
popular to talk about increased
defense spending, but now it is pain-
fully cleai that military personnel
need a better deal. People who once
considered a career in the military
are finding that they just cannot
make ends meet. One example:
What little the government con-
tributes for moving expenses when
servicemen and their families are
transferred doesn't help much, and
they are forced to borrow money,
often at extremely high interest
11 registration does lead directly
to the draft, the majority of the peo-
ple who will enter the service won't
be there because they like it. The ad-
ministration and Congress need to
make the armed forces more attrac-
tive and competitive with civilian
jobs if a high-quality standing army
is the goal. Registration only signals
the wholesale conscription of un-
willing citizens, not exactly an ideal
fighting force.
More Problems For WZMB?
The fate of WZMB (formerly
WECU) has see-sawed back and
forth for two years, and now that
the station is finally about to go on
the air, something smells fishy.
Station Manager John Jeter's
successor, Glenda Killingsworth,
and former advisor Dr. Carlton
Benz recently attended a meeting
where the major topic was state fun-
ding for new public radio stations
by the newly created N.C. Agency
for Public Telecommunications.
There is some controversy concer-
ning the authorization of the trip,
but the more immediate factor is
why? Additional funding from the
state could supplement the
WZMB's operating costs. It is nice
to know that all possible financial
avenues are being explored, but the
catch in this program is the loss of
student control of programming
and coverage area.
The preliminary budget for the
university radio station (which one
Media Board member said "costs
too much") is about $7,000 less
than last year's budget. The station
will cost about $3 a year per student
to listen to the wide variety of
music, both live and recorded. That
doesn't seem like much for good
entertainment compared to about
$25 per semester for athletics.
The Media Board will get a bigger
cut of student monies next year
because The East Carolinian is
reducing the amount of student fun-
ding by about $10,000 less this year.
And WZMB costs too much to
operate? Someone's calculator must
be broken.
Why give away control of
something for which students have
fought long and hard? That fear
might be paranoid, but all the in-
dicators are pointing in that direc-
tion. It's hard to say � WZMB's
past has been fraught with many
pitfalls, let's hope the trip was for
informational purposes only and
not a part of some greater plan.

'Nook And Cranny' Questioned
In response to the article concerning
handicapped student services which ap-
peared in the June 12 issue of The East
Carolinian: C. C. Rowe has been the
coordinator for handicapped student
services for three years. It is revealing to
know that he defends the location of his
office, which is inaccessible to people
confined to wheelchairs, by considering
it a "nook and cranny on campus"
which does not have to be made accessi-
ble to those students to whom he is
responsible. 1 am touched by Mr.
Rowe's overwhelming sensitivitv toward
handicapped students.
This is not the first article in which
ECU has been touted as the leader in
providing services for handicapped
students in the UNC university system.
This remarkable demonstration of
cooperative working spirit leads me to
suspect that, until very recently, this
reputation was gained through default
rather than effort.

'By What Authority Do We Have This Right?'
We are ready for thermonuclear war and
every day we are feverishly getting more
ready. Let no one suppose that we are in-
capable of it: We are the only nation that
has ever unleashed atomic bombs against
an adversary. We have been considering
atomic warfare in one place or other ever
since: Korea, China, Cuba, Laos, Berlin,
Vietnam. We came within a few minutes of
launching a thermonuclear war in 1962.
President Kennedy decided that he would
press the button if a Russian freighter
crossed a certain line in the Atlantic en
route to Cuba. The president knew full
well what he was about. He knew that he
was about to ignite history's greatest
cataclysm. But somehow � I shall never
be able to imagine why � he was convinc-
ed that the situation called for it.
At the heart of this monstrous folly
there is, I believe, a religious vision. It is
the vision of a secular religion, to be sure,
yet one unthinkingly embraced by more
Americans than accept the conventional
religions of the land.
The central doctrine of this religion is
Manifest Destiny. The first official ap-
pearance of this idea occurred in 1846,
when a Massachusetts congressman
declared "the right of our manifest destiny
to spread over this whole continent
Remember the word 'right' in this state-
ment. This manifest destiny proved its
worth in remarkably few years. But the
idea did not subside after we conquered the
wilderness. It was assimilated into the
American ethos, and has now taken on
world-emcompassing dimensions. We now
believe that it is Manifest Destiny that we
be pre-eminent on the globe. We have
come to consider it our right � our destiny
in the world � to be first, to be most in-
fluential, to have our own way in all im-
portant matters, to assert universal validity
for our democratic credos.
But there is still one right which cannot
be denied. It is the right to blow up the
world, or a large part of it, and degrade
civilization. So we come to the most im-
portant question of all: Quo warranto? By
what authority do we come to have this
right? Only if we think Gods right name is
Satan can we believe it is conferred by any
heavenly authority. When President Ken-
nedy was poised to start thermonuclear
war, his brother, the attorney general, ask-
ed him to consider whether the American
government or any government had the
moral right ot initiate thermonuclear war.
The president said he had no time to con-
sider theories. He said that the country's
manhood demanded what he was about to
do, though heinrew that there would be lit-
tle left of our country or its manhood if he

There is a twist here and a twist there, but most of

sequels and prequels to come. In fact, one gets the
feeling that this series can never end but is forever
to be continued. Most of its fans, at least at this
stage of the game, prefer it that way.
"Empire" takes the long view of history and
finds no moral in it whatsoever. Too many films
live too much in the recent past of the topic that
they deal with and too much in the present the rest
of the time. Lucas, like the hot-shot astronauts in
his films, is a free agent. His film is propelled by a
kind of Relativity Theory. He zooms through
time from the remote future to the remote past as
easily as Star Wars' rocket ships zoom through
"hyper-space" from one end of the universe to the

other at the speed of light.
An historical relativism really is the secret to
Lucas' success. Instead of trying to apply the stan-
dards of the present to the past, Lucas applies the
standards of the past to the future. Thus, he has
made another work of flawless escapism:
"Empire" escapes the angst of the present
While Lucas' characters live a millennium or
two from now, much of their story seems to occur
anywhere from a generation to a millennium ago.

Back the sequel to "Star Wars"�suggest that
Americans are both fascinated with and horrified
by the technological world we have shaped.
Neither movie pretends to great seriousness.
"Star Wars" is a light confection about another
galaxy and era and a young man named Luke
Skywalker who, thanks to an improbably series of
coincidences, is drawn into a death battle against
the galaxy's wicked emperor. En route to victory,
he encounters a fair princess and wins her heart, if
not her hand. (This is the age of liberation.)
"Close Encounters of the Third Kind" concerns
Roy Neary, an ordinary American who has an en-
counter with a UFO and becomes obsessed with
his search for an explanation. His mission is im-
peded by those who do not believe in the existence
of UFOs; by those who would prefer to wish the
perplexing UFOs out of existence; and by those in
power who. to prevent panic, deny the existence of
UFOs. Like Skywalker and every adventurer-hero
since Odysseus, Neary finds an available pretty
girl to accompany him on his lonelv mission. In
the last frame, though, he achieves a goal more
lofty than marriage�he strides in to a UFO and,
the ultimate American pioneer, flies away with the
strange Visitors to destinations unknown.
From the popularity of "Star Wars the likely
success of "Close Encounters and the increasing
respectability of the whole genre of science fiction,
it is clear that our age, more than its predecessors,
needs whatever consolation or reassurance science
fiction affords. If all art is to some extent escapist,
one might ask what it is that we are escaping from.
An answer, 1 think, is hidden in the films' im-
agery. In "Star Wars Luke Skywalker ekes out
a living as a "moisture farmer" (whatever that
may be) in a bleak desert on the remote planet of
Tatooine. Apparently, the reason he lives in such
an unfruitful place rather than in a galactic Palm
Springs is that there is no galactic Palm Springs:
Evil technology has reduced the universe to wind
and sand. If the technocrats were not so vicious
and self-serving, the land would be more fruitful.
Luke's mission is to replace the Bad technocrats
with the Good, which he does. In a closing
ceremony disturbingly reminiscent of Nuremberg
Nazi rallies, Luke is rewarded with a medal (and a
wink) by the princess, who represents the new,
benevolent ruling class.

Dem 'Stormy Monday Laundry Day Blues'
Staff Writer
One day of each week of my life is tainted by an op-
pressive shadow hanging over it � namely, the
knowledge that 1 have no more even slightly clean
clothes and that laundry day is at hand. 1 put this off as
long as possible, even when I'm at home, where we have
those funny washers and dryers without coin slots in
In college, especially in ECU dorms, doing laundry is
a complicated and nerve-wracking process, fraught with
disaster and frustration.
The first problem is the coin shortage. If you need to
do your laundry, all 300 people in the dorm are either
broke or have only paper money and pennies. Most of
us know better than to trust the change machines so the
thing to do is trudge over to the Rip V Run to get
quarters, dimes and aspirins.
Next comes the task of finding an unoccupied washer,
preferably one that works. Good timing is important,
unless you like to hang around laundry rooms with bun-
ches of dirty clothes. When I lived in Jones Hall and had
to wash, clothes in the basement of Belk dorm, my
"secret time" was 9:00 Sunday morning. That early,
few people had regained consciousness enough to
bother much with their laundry so I was always sure of
finding a washing machine open. One fateful day, 1 ar-
rived to find 40 guys cramming the entire basement with
truckloads of dirty clothes, all at 9:00 Sunday morning.
My "secret time" was no longer secret. I started sleep-
ing until noon on Sundays.
When I lived in Umstead, my roommate would
periodically load up his duffle bag and head down to the
laundry room on Friday or Saturday night. They tell
you that ECU is a great party school, but you almost
need reservations to get your clothes done here on
weekend nights.
The size of a dorm laundry doesn't matter much. One
such as Umstead's has three washers and three dryers.
The massive laundry rooms on the Hill have perhaps
eight or 10 of each. The problem is that most of the
machines in the big laundries are adorned with "out of
order" signs. Many of them are simply hollow card-
board props put in to make the place look larger and
more impressive.
A washer that displays an "out of order" sign usually
is, but a washer not so designated is not necessarily "in
of order One washing machine of my acquaintance
worked perfectly, except it forgot to let the water drain
out when it was through. After wringing a gallon of
water out of my clothes, I spent three quarters trying to
dry them.
A really frustrating thing is to put your clothes in the
wash in a totally deserted laundry room, and to come
back in 30 minutes to find all three dryers full of clothes
from the wardrobe of some mysterious, inconsiderate
I had a roommate on the Hill who went to see hi
girlfriend one night a week, and got her to do his laun-
dry. I've always been too soft-hearted to put anyone 1
liked through such an ordeal.
A bankrupt friend of mine, after selling her albums,
started doing laundry for people in her dorm for a cou-
ple of dollars. It kept her financially solvent and saved
many people a lot of trouble.
But, for all that, doing laundry could be worse here
at college. I remember passing a farmhouse on the way
here from home, where the day's wash was hanging �
on six clotheslines, each 100 feet long. There were hun-
dreds of clothes of every size, shape and color, all
sparkling in the afternoon sun. On the other side of the
tiny farmhouse were four more similar clotheslines. Im-
agine the Waltons doing six months' worth of laundry
all at once, and you have it. I'll bet someone in that
house would love to trade laundry with any of us.

perhaps bring a little bit of respect
to the term.
This is one fine album. The
Motors are Nick Garvey and Andy
McMaster, and that is about the ex-
tent of the knowledge I have about
them. For all 1 know, they could
have crawled from the gutter up to
those tenement steps and started
producing music. All that matters is
that their music is superb. The
Motors are the only current group
that I know of recording on Virgin
Records, the company that brought
you the punk movement.
The album has a unique sound. It
is sort of a combination between the
pop perplexity of Gino Vanclli and
the Eurodisco appeal of Blondie,
ijwiwiw ii"
but it is a lot more sophisticated
than either. The Motors are a four-
piece combo, but the rhythm section
is even more nebulous than Garvey
and McMasters. The synthesizer
dominance of McMasters makes
Tenement Steps more aesthetically
palatable than the usual humdrum
redundance of most New Wave, and
Garvey's guitars do not dominate
but create more excitement.
The single "Love and
Loneliness" is receiving airplay in
more progressive areas, but "That's
What John Said" and "Modern
Man" are truly distinguished ditties
well worth hearing. If I didn't think
you were satiated with the whole
trip, I would tell you of how the
lyrics mumble of alienation, inner
city panic and a lean future.
Regardless, Tenement Steps is a fine
effort, and the Motors should have
a promising future.

Joan Armatrading's last album
(?) was a cheap promotional bulljive
that consisted of one side of grooves
and another side as flat as the area
around Mount St. Helens. What
kind of idiot would pay four dollars
for one side of an album? This
album, however, is a full LP of
some of the finest material she has
ever produced and features various
influences ranging from pop to reg-

Perhaps what frees
these films from the
ponderousness of so
many other films is the
fact that it deals not
with history, but with
pop images of history.
The historical
panoramam that it
grafts onto the future
really comes from a lot
of Hollywood movies
about the past rather
than the past itself.
One hero comes
straight out of a Ford
western, and the other
out of a Bogart film.
But if there is any
period genre Lucas'
film seems to prefer, it
is the Medieval. Besides
being punctuated with
adventures from Robin
Hood and Ivanhoe, the
film is pervaded in
general by an at-
mosphere of knights in
shining armor.
Having once again
set his film in the fur-
thest imaginable
future, Lucas has
drawn from the fur-
thest historical past, or
at least a reasonable
facsimile thereof.
The result of Lucas'
efforts is not to raise
such questions as "Will
the universe be saved?"
These films aren't
meant to be ingenious
in any way. They are
meant to be exactly
what they are. From
Lucas' view they cer-
tainly haven't failed.

Similarly, in "Close Encounters the world in
which Roy Neary lives is corrupted by bad
technology. Directory Stephen Spielberg focuses
his camera critically on all the mechanical
paraphernalia�toy trains, hair driers, tvs�with
which we surround ourselves. The way the
Visitors from the other planet make their
presence known is by wreaking havoc on
technology: turning on toys, stereos, tvs, in the
dead of night; turning off the telephones and the
electricity; bewildering the air traffic scanners.
The vision that obsesses Roy Neary, though, is
not one of a Thoreauvian cabin in the woods,
where evil technology may never trespass, but
rathei one of a technologically perfect world,
where all the circuits enhance man's happiness.
When we (with Neary) are finally vouchsafed a vi-
sion of the Visitors' gigantic spaceship, it is a mo-
ment of glory and ecstasy, visually spectacular,
and accompanied by booming organlike music
that suggests that this is a sacred, rather than a
scientific, event.
Like Neary and Skywalker, Americans are
perplexed by the failure of technology to supply
us with a meaningful life or a decent environment
to live in. For every wonderful aeheivement,
technology seems to deal us an equivalent kick in
the shins. Travel has become more efficient and
less civilized. Television has helped to raise a
generation of unprecedentedly educated six-year-
olds and increasingly illiterate high school
seniors. We can enjoy completely enclosed and
comfortable environments hundreds of feet
above the sidewalk until, as witness the New York
City blackout last summer, someone pulls the
plug and the environments become inaccessible
and uninhabitable. Only the most naive believe
we can escape our increasingly technological en-
vironment. Recognizing that the technologizing
trend is irreversible, we fantasize, with Skywalker
and Neary, about a world where all the machines-
work with us, rather than against us, where the
computer does not obstinately mis-bill, and where
jets disgorge our luggage intact at correct destina-
Regrettably, as both these films imply, the
"perfect" technocracy is one over which ordinary
mortals can exercise no influence. The enormity
and complexity of the system preclude nonexpert
involvement. Our only options in such a world
would be to replace the bad technocrats, as
Skywalker does, evade them, as Neary does, or
trust that in their loving-kindness they will make
the machines produce what we desire. Our
democratic methods of trying to control our ex-
ploding technology may be less than "perfect
but they do leave man some room in which to
manage his destiny.

The East Carolinian, June 19, 1980
East Carolina's student-run campus newspaper was first published in 1923 as the East Carolina Teachers College News (1923-1925). It has been re-named as The Teco Echo (1925, 1926-1952), East Carolinian (1952-1969), Fountainhead (1969-1979), and The East Carolinian (1969, 1979-present). It includes local, state, national, and international stories with a focus on campus events.
