made of regular wages paid for nor-
mal bus driver rates, there was no
evidence either substantiating or
repudiating the (idea) that excess
hours were paid for the bus driver's
services. It was further determined
that there is a need for an adequate
system of time reporting for payroll
In his examination of the transit
charter trips, Dale noted that "there
has been 232 hours of charter ser-
vice wages paid to bus drivers. Bas-
ed on my analysis of those trips, it
appears that most of the trips were
driven by Mr. Fleming or Mr. Ab-
shire with the remainder of the trips
going to a select few of the other
drivers. Although this may not have
been intentional, it appears the
managers have lost their objectivity
and are taking on the additional
charters for their own edification

An inquiry into the management
practices of two former managers of

completed. The results do not in-

Leonard Fleming and Chubby Ab-
shire did anything illegal while in of-
fice, but ECU Internal Auditor Jim
Dale, who conducted the inquiry,
has made several recommendations
to SGA President Charlie Sherrod
based on his findings.
Sherrod initiated the inquiry late
in May after he appointed two new
transit managers to run the student
bus system. The transit manager
jobs are political offices, and Sher-

Dr. Angelo A. Volpe, a pioneer

The Independents for Anderson
Party held their first state conven-
tion in Research Triangle Park
Saturday, nominating John B.
Anderson for president and moving
a step closer to getting the Illinois
congressman on the North Carolina
ballot in November.
The convention also nominated
James Clotfelder, a UNC-
Greensboro political science pro-
fessor, as a "stand-in" nominee for
vice-president. Clotfelder's nomina-
tion was a technical move to satisfy
a North Carolina elections law re-
quiring presidential candidates to
name a running mate. He will
decline the nomination when Ander-
son picks his real nominee later in
the campaign.
North Carolina is one of only
three states that require independent
candidates to be sponsored by an in-
dependent political party. The N.C.
Elections Board approved the party
on June 17, on the condition that
the party's candidates be eligible
under North Carolina law and the
Anderson supporters have
gathered enough signatures to get
on the ballots of 13 other states �
New Jersey, Michigan,
Massachusetts, Utah, Ohio, Ken-
tucky, Kansas, West Virginia, New
Mexico, Maine, Idaho, Wisconsin
and Rhode Island.
In Ohio, Kentucky, New Mexico
and Maine, Anderson campaign
lawyers have filed court suits
challenging rulings by state officials
that Anderson failed to meet re-
quirements other than the number
of signatures.
During the party convention in
North Carolina, John Wade,
Southeast coordinator for the
Anderson campaign, described a
scenario for the campaign. "In a
few weeks Reagan will be way out
front. Then the press will look close-
ly at Ronald Reagan's record and
Reagan's support will fade away.
There will be a battle between John
Anderson and Ronald Reagan, with
Carter stuck at 25 to 30 percent of
the vote
According to an Associated Press
article Tuesday, Anderson's top
campaign manager said that, with
the possible exception of North
Carolina, Tennessee, Florida and
Texas, Anderson will concede the
Southern states as a Carter-Reagan

Mixed Drinks
r Campus Forum
Greenville May Get Chance
At long last it appears that the ci-
ty of Greenville might have the op-
portunity to vote on mixed drinks.
On Thursday, July 10, the Green-
ville City Council will hear a request
from the Greenville Area Chamber
of Commerce for a referendum to
be held on the controversial issue of
liquor by the drink.
The N.C. Legislature recently
enacted legislation allowing
municipalities within counties that
have already defeated the issue to
vote again if the residents of at least
two municipalities voted in favor of
liquor by the drink. Only the
municipalities that voted in favor of
liquor by the drink may hold
another referendum.
If everything goes as planned, the
referendum will take place in Green-
ville some time prior to the general
election in the fall. Since state law
forbids a referendum during a
general election � no closer than 60
days, in fact � the city council must
decide whether a referendum should
be held in early fall, or table the
issue until the spring.
In the county-wide referendum
last year, Greenville voters approv-
ed the issue by a 2 to 1 margin, but
the county as a whole defeated the
The citizens of Greenville should
now be allowed to determine
whether or not they want mixed
drinks within the city
The issue, if not made into a
religious or emotional one, is sim-
ple. It all comes down to personal
preference. Those desiring to con-
sume mixed drinks should be allow-
ed to do so; those opposed to mixed
drinks would still have the freedom
to select different beverages. In ad-
dition, liquor by the drink would
provide the most efficient method
of dispensing alcohol � liquor by
the drink instead of liquor by the
The voters of Greenville spoke
loudly last summer. Now it's up to
City Council to give their consti-
tuency a chance to decide the issue
within city limits.
Error In Editorial
In the June 26 edition of The East
Carolinian, there was a factual error
in the editorial, "CPB Trip: A
Waste Of Time And Money We
stated: "Meyer violated state travel
regulations "Carlton Benz, the
university representative at the
workshop, never filled out the re-
� quired 'Petition to Travel
A petition to travel within the
state is a university policy, not a
state policy. Benz did file a petition
to travel and it is on file in the
Academic Affairs Office, not the
Student Life Office, which funded
the trip. There was no violation of
the regulations in that respect. We
were unable to contact Benz prior to
the publication and to locate the
petition. We apologize for the error
and any inconvenience which may
have resulted.
1984: It's Getting Closer
This is the 204th anniversary of
the Independence of the United
States of America. It is a logical
time to peruse the state of affairs in
this country; we are only four years
away from George Orwell's 1984. Is
Big Brother already watching you?
Recent disclosures of CIA and
FBI files show that they have files
on ordinary citizens that are in-
credibly detailed. They have inter-
viewed persons that might have
known the individual under in-
vestigation and have access to
records from the phone companies
and other utilities as well as any
school or employ nt.
On a different level, private in-
dustry has files that are also very
detailed. The phone company for
instance, maintains extremely
minute records of all phone calls
made to and from every telephone
in this country. These records are
kept on a computer of course and,
as most people are aware, computer
records can be and are seen by
unauthorized people. With that
kind of information anyone's past is
an open book and secrets are not
necessarily secret any more.
At the private level, anyone that
has ever worked in this country and
has a Social Security account
number has given the government
records of all wages and places of
employment. If that wage earner
has a bank account, then the bank
has a record of every check ever
written as well as a balance history.
Right here on campus, everyone
that applied for admission knows
that the University has records of
residence and academic perfor-
mance before ever setting eyes on
the students. Upon arrival at ECU,
the student is assigned an ID
number that is the key to any
records that the University may
keep on that student for the rest of
his life. Possession of that number
provides access to personal records
for any faculty member whose class
the student may have attended. This
record may include health records,
traffic records, library fines and, of
course, courses taken, courses drop-
ped and the grade assigned.
If for any reason a student applies
for financial aid, then a permanent
record of that application, including
information concerning the amount
earned by the student's parents, is
on file in the Financial Aid Office.
The days of "Newspeak" have
not yet arrived, but 1984 is only
four years away,
Killingsworth, Benz, Meyer Rebut
1 was surprised to read your recent
editorial entitled: "CPB Trip: A Waste
of Time and Money How was this opi-
nion formed? Neither 1 nor Dr. Benz,
the only two ECU participants of the
convention, have stated anything of this
If I had written the editorial myself, 1
would have rephrased the headline to
state: "Expansion Workshop: Proved
Both Successful and Informative
As future General Manager of WZMB
as of August 1, 1980, 1 would like to
clarify the importance of this conven-
tion. The workshop agenda, which was
sent to the station PRIOR to my deci-
sion to attend the convention, included
both how to build and how to operate a
public radio station (which � by the
way � is what WE are). Station
managers and representatives from both
professional and campus stations
presented individual analyses of both
problems and successes their stations
had experienced in the past. These
analyses were given in an attempt to pre-
vent other stations (WZMB included)
from making the same errors.
1 was informed specifically of many
minute legal restrictions of FCC and
possible funding requirements. If you've
ever seen the FCC legal documents, you
would realize the need for assistance to
interpret the restrictions FCC imposes
on radio stations.
The amount of knowledge 1 gained
from this trip was immeasurable. One of
the most important and relevant aspects
of the convention to our station was the
board meeting of the North Carolina
Advisory Committee for Telecom-
munications. Stationed in Raleigh,
N.C, this organization hopefully will be
able to allocate money to various sta-
tions within North Carolina. The pur-
pose of this meeting was to help the Ad-
visory Committee in determining the
criteria necessary for stations attempting
to receive funds.
By attending the workshop, WZMB
was represented at this board meeting.
Although we were not originally on the
agenda to speak at the meeting (because
WZMB had not promptly responded to
the invitation), David Stevens, member
of NCAT, was gracious enough to in-
clude the station on the agenda. Do you
think the committee would even con-
sider us for funding if we were not in-
terested enough to attend a meeting
within two hours driving distance?
In addition to explaining these details
about the convention, I would like to
also clarify who was responsible for my
attendance7 at the workshop. Dr. Meyer
informed the station and department of
the fact that there was to be a workshop
in Swan Quarter. This was the first time
1 had been told of the convention. After
trying unsuccessfully to contact John
Jeter, current general manager of the
station, 1 proceeded to make ar-
rangements to attend the workshop.
With just a week before the workshop to
take place, 1 felt the sponsor of the
workshop should know whether or not
someone from ECU was going to attend.
After reading over the material sent con-
cerning the workshop, I deemed it im-
portant that our station (and not just
faculty) represent the university. As
assistant manager, it is within my job
description to take command of a situa-
tion if unable to reach the general
manager. I would like it clearly
understood that (a student at ECU)
made the decision to attend the
workshop; it was not Dr. Meyer or any
other administrator or faculty member.
1 felt the students should be represented
at the workshop � 1 attended it.
Finally, I would like to publicly thank
Dr. Meyer for making the station aware
of the opportunity to attend the
workshop. 1 have come from it with a
much clearer understanding of the im-
mense responsibilities of being General
Manager of WZMB. I sincerely want to
run the station so that it is beneficial to
our audience: the university community,
specifically, and the Greenville area in

WNSP, Warrenton; WFAE-FM,
Charlotte; WLOZ-FM, UNC Wilm-
ington; WCPE, Raleigh; WDAV-FM,
Davidson College; and WSHA-FM,
Shaw University.
A very important part of the meeting
was the regional hearing of the North
Carolina Agency for Public Telecom-
munications, chaired by Rep. Marie W.
Colton. We presented the WZMB story
to them. (Incidentally, there was a bill
before the North Carolina Legislature
requesting a $250,000 grant to public
radio stations.)
It is important for us to be aware of
what is going on in radio across the state
and to know the people who are doing it.
When state or federal funds are
available, we should know about them
and make every effort to receive them.
EC statement: "students MUST be
allowed to make decisions
FACT: This brings up probably the
most important issue, "What should be
the role of a campus FM radio station?"
Consider these thoughts:
"In response to the needs of the stu-
dent body in particular, and the Univer-
sity Community in general, the (FM sta-
tion's purpose) will be to enrich the
educational experience and campus life
by providing a communication medium

Students of East Carolina University,
is this the role you envision for your
campus FM radio station? Who has ad-
vocated such a role for a campus sta-
tion? Was it CPB? No. Was it the ECU
Administration? No. The quotations are
from East Carolina University's license
application to the Federal Communica-
tions Commission. Thes are STU-
DENT DECISIONS as to the purpose,
objectives and proposed program
policies as stated in the formal applica-
tion to the FCC.
On Monday, June 23, 1980, Robert
M. Swaim and Charles Sune asked for
an interview with me claiming to repre-
sent The East Carolinian. I presume the
front page article and "Opinion" col-
umn in the June 26, 1980 issue is a result
of that interview, plus other information
they had gathered about a trip to a
workshop on Public Radio at San
Quarter in Hyde County, N.C.
Since Mr. Sune and Mr. Swaim have a
tape of our conversation, I assume that
it will be made available to anyone who
is interested in listening to it. Both the
"Opinion" article (1 assume it was not
an editorial because no editor contacted
me for information) and the story on the
front page of the June 26, 1980 The East
Carolinian are inaccurate and
Let me comment on a couple of items
which are mentioned in both the article
and the column:
I. The headline on the front page
("Trip Authorized Without Con-
sent") is misleading especiallv
since it also says "Vice Chancellor

2. No violation of any N.C. State
Travel Regulations occurred since
no approval is needed in advance
for in-state travel, though 1 did
give a verbal commitment to Pro-
fessor Benz and paid for the trip
from my budget. More important,
had Mr. Sune or Mr. Swaim taken
the time to check with Professor
Benz. as I suggested they do. thev
would have discovered that a peti-
tion to travel had been approved
and is in his possession, even
though not technically needed.
3. Mr. Jeter has a copy of a letter to
the workshop chairman which in-
dicated that 1 simply referred the
information on this workshop to
him and to the Department of
Drama and Speech. 1 indicated
that if someone was interested in
attending thev sould hear of it
directly from the potentiallv in-
terested parties. That letter i
available and is on the tape which
Mr. Sune took with him when he
left my office.
Students certainly have a right to
make decisions and 1 do support such
decisions. It is only when irresponsible
acts such as these two articles occur thai
1 become perturbed. 1 would hope that
as a courtesy all facts and people are
contacted before an issue is written. This
apparently was not the case in this situa-
tion. Also I think those who write
"Opinion" articles ought to sign their
own names to them so thev can be held
accountable. I would appreciate a cor-
rection and an apology for the incorrect
information conveyed bv your paper

Patriotism Today
Is Nothing New
Independence Day Is A Time For Celebrating
the freedom that American patriots have won in the last 200years
AtsiManl YtHurrs Kdilor
Tomorrow is American In-
dependence Day, commonly refer-
red to as the fourth of July. It is a
celebration of the birthday of the
United States of America. In these
troubled times of The Iranian Situa-
tion and the Afghanistan Situation
it is also a chance to examine the
role of the American citizen today
and to compare it with that role in
the past.
Patriots. America has never lack-
ed for them, and yet the definition
of that term has changed over the
years. To one section of the popula-
tion the term means military service,
and indeed many of our great
patriots have been military men and
women. From the early days of this
country, America has kept a large
military machine that has actively
participated in every major conflict
on this planet. Since the times of
George Washington and Francis
Marion, through U.S. Grant and
Robert E. Lee, through Teddy
Roosevelt and Sgt. Alvin York and
up to Audie Murphy and Chesty
Puller, the military has produced
many famous patriots. In addition
to these famous soldiers, countless
numbers of Americans have served
their country and their own sense of
patriotism by serving in the military.
If, in fact, there is "no greater love
than to give up your life for a
friend then America has millions
of great friends.
Milton reminds us that "They
also serve who only stand and
wait Other Americans have pro-
ven their patriotism without any
military service or with service in ad-
dition to military. In the sixties and
"Even during Vietnam and Watergate, the two
greatest tests of American Patriotism, Americans did
not give up on their country.M
seventies, in the aftermath of the
Vietnam war, military service
became unpopular. Americans had
to use other means to show their
love of country and the ideals that
America stands for. The same spirit
that made the American military the
best in the world characterized these
other efforts. In the Peace Corps the
so-called Military-Industrial Com-
plex Americans were making the
world better, safer, and most impor-
tantly, freer.
American patriots come from
every conceivable background,
from Czechoslovakian immigrants
to members of the First Families of
Virginia. They are rich, poor and
middle class and every color and
size. They are old men and young
women. They have supported
America in every land on earth.
They have also criticized their coun-
try and its actions but that criticism
and the freedom that allows it have
served to make the country better
and stronger.
In the years that followed World
War II the image of the United
States abroad suffered and it was
not until these past two years that
that image was poor enough to elicit
a reaction among the citizens of the
United States. Now Charlie Daniels
sings patriotic songs reminiscent of
the Hoagy Carmichael and Johnr.y
Mercer hits of the forties. All over
the country, from rural outposts
like Greenville to the Urban centers
of leftist liberalism, Americans are
talking tough, ready to fight their
way out of the various predicaments
they find themselves in.
If patriotism is an extreme love of
country, then the United Stales has
always had an abundance of
patriots. Even during the worst of
Vietnam and Watergate, the two
greatest tests of American
patriotism, Americans did not give
up on their country. They may have
despised their leaders and the ac-
tions of their government, but they
were still flag-waving Americans
and they knew that their country
was still the greatest and the freest
country available. The so-called
"new patriotism" elicited by the
taking of American hostages in Iran
is not new at all. It is the same reac-
tion that this country had to the
direct attack on our citizens by
Japan, Germany or even England.
If indeed we end up at war � an
abhorrent development � over the
hostages, then the reaction of the
people will probably be the same as
in those past times when America
was attacked by a foreign power.
America's true patrots h tradi-
tionally come to the ioretront when
the need arose. This crisis is no ex-
ception. War or peace, the real
lovers of truth, justice and the

He lives under the guise of Mike Lange, a mild-
mannered physical therapy major at East Carolina
University. Underneath, he's the Man of Steel? Not
quite, but close. Lange is the reigning Teen-age Mr.
North Carolina.
The Wilmington native earned the 1979 champion-
ship on Sept. 29. The body builders' competition,
Lange's first, was held in the Salvation Army gym-
nasium in High Point.
In his room in Belk Dormitory, Lange remembered
the competition while taking a break after a weightlif-
ting session.
"1 was very nervous he recalledand when you're
posing up on stage, you're not supposed to have any ex-
pression on your face as though you're straining. You
have to try to maintain a pleasant expression
Lange and 17 other competitors in the teen-age divi-
sion performed before approximately 1,000 people.
They first performed as a group, posing and turning at
45-degree angles.
The body builders then went into their own styles of
performing. Lange used 11 poses of which six poses
were required.
"You add other poses to show off your best points
Lange said. "An advanced body builder might have 20
to 30 poses
The judges then chose six semifinalists to perform
certain poses before the final decision was made.
The 6-foot, 200-pound junior has been lifting weights
or "pumping iron" for five years. He began training for
the High Point competition 1 Vi years before the meet.
"1 gained 50 pounds in high school just lifting
weights Lange said. As a high school freshman, he
went from 140 pounds to 150 pounds so he could join
the John T. Hoggard High School football team.
Lange now does most of his weightlifting at the
Nautilus health clubs in Greenville and Wilmington. He
is the manager of the Wilmington club on weekends and
in the summer.
He works out four times a week. "I exercise one half
of my body on one day and the other half the next he
Eating large amounts of food adds strength, accor-
ding to Lange.
"1 try to eat four to six times a day and include lots of
protein like milk, eggs, chicken and beef
However, Lange dieted just before the Teen-age Mr.
North Carolina competition and lost eight pounds.
"Some people go into a contest looking too fat he
said. Body fat hides muscle definition, the most impor-
tant criterion in judging body builders, according to
"Measurements aren't that important he explain-
ed. Lange said that a small body builder with good mus-
cle definition can win out over a larger competitor with
less-defined muscles.
The dieting made a substantial difference in the ap-
pearance of his muscles and their definition, but Lange
admits that the dieting combined with an increased
schedule of weightlifting before the competition made
him feel weak.
Lange choses his poses to display his muscles to their
best advantage. He limited his poses to 11 to avoid
showing off too many of his weak points, a prac-

Film Violence In
Benchley's Island
Reaches Apogee
Features Kdilor
We are slowly leaving an era
of zap-plop-stab-splatter
movie violence and ex-
plicitness that was in its zenith
around 1972. Before 1972, the
camera, like a worried friend,
used to avert its gaze just
before the awful thing happen-
In the old Ronald Colman
version of A Tale of Two
Cities, we watched with a mix-
ture of admiration (for his
heroism) and horror (at his
fate) while Sidney Carton's
neck was fitted into the groov-

The camera, however, was
already scanning a peaceful
eternity in some painted
clouds above the guillotine at
the moment the blade whizzed
In what is certainly one of
the most violent wastes-of-

Benchley's The Island splat-
tered onto the silver screen at
Greenville's Plaza Cinema last
week. Its hack plot about
centuries-old pirates responsi-
ble for the disappearances in
the Bermuda Triangle is mere-
ly an excuse for a bloodbath of
unprecedented carnage.
The Island brought back
memories of the films of the
early seventies: Polanski's
Macbeth, Don Siegel's Dirty
Harry, Peckinpah's Straw
Dogs and The Wild Bunch,
Kubrick's A Clockwork
Orange, et al.
Not all of these movies I
mention are of equal impor-
tance. I think if I had been
able to do so without disturb-
ing the people around me, I
would have walked out of The
Island. 1 must admit that 1 en-
joyed Dirty Harry, but I am
confused not only with the
uses to which it puts its
violence, but also with its
idiotic plot premise. The
movie is such a ridiculous
polemic for Neanderthal law
and order that I doubt even
the genius of a Kubrick could
make it artistically acceptable.
Also, not all of the violence

Getting Rid Of The

�tuff Writer
The dorm room, with a little work
in the decorating department, can
be a wonderful place of quiet
solitude � a comforting shelter
from the day-to-day pressures of
everyday life. One can lie down,
relax and enjoy a refreshing in-
terlude; that is, until the roommate
arrives with twelve obnoxious
friends, ready for a 100-decibel full-
tracking of the new Van Halen
album. Peace and solitude are ex-
ploded and blown away in a sea of
beer cans and thundering music as
the thought forms in your mind:
"I've got to get rid of this guy or go
The "roommate crisis" is
something that strikes one out of
every one college student at some
time in his or her university career.
Dormitory living is an excellent ex-
ample of "high density popula-
tion sort of like those experiments
where they put hundreds of rats in a
cage and they all eventually try to
kill each other. Pressure is bound to
build up, especially with the system
of throwing two perfect strangers
(or even imperfect strangers) into
such tiny, uncomfortable ceils.
Sometimes, roommates may turn
out to be merely harmless eccen-
trics. One friend of mine roomed
with a guy who polished the bot-
toms of his shoes and drank Texas
Pete. Another shared his room with
someone whose only music was
Black Sabbath albums and who
went to bed at eight o'clock.
It's very important that room-
mates have some things in common,
like schedules. For example, a stu-
dent who for security reasons (my
security) will be referred to as "X"
would make everyone in the dorm
shut up at ten so he could go to bed.
Of course, it was okay for him to get
up at six and turn on the radio,
television and stereo all at the same
time and the same intense level of
volume. This invariably woke up
"Y his roommate (not to mention
half the dorm). " Y" usually came in
at two in the morning and got
revenge by snapping on the
overhead light and stomping around
enough to wake up "X

another source of friction between
roommates. Some people like the

temperature in the room.

Kubrick's A ttempt,
The Ultimate Horror
The Shining opened yesterday at Greenville's
Park Theater. For a review of this film see next
week's issue of The East Carolinian.
Th� New York Time's Magazine
Horror movies always have had a following, of
course. But they have never had such a big, rapt,
educated and adult following as in the past dozen
years, beginning in 1968 with Roman Polanski's
Rosemary's Baby.
In that movie, hard-core horror � which
would henceforth encompass not only vampires,
psychopathic killers and mutant arthropods, but
Satan himself � went high-gloss and big-budget.
Rosemary's Baby, with its $15 million box-
office gross, has since been overtaken by The Ex-
orcist (the fourth biggest money-maker of all time
with more than $88 million in revenues), Alien,
The Amityville Horror and Carrie, the film ver-
sion of "occult" novelist Stephen King's first
book, about a 17-year-old girl who incinerates her
classmates � telekinetically � at the senior
To this list will almost certainly be added The
Shining, the film version of King's third novel. It
has been produced, directed and co-written by no
less than Stanley Kubrick, maker of such am-
bitious and controversial movies as Dr.
Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A
Clockwork Orange and Barry Lyndon.
Widely publicized as Kubrick's attempt at "the
ultimate horror movie The Shining tells the
story of a family snowbound in an apparently
haunted Colorado resort hotel. The film stars
Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall; true devotees
of the horror genre have been anticipating it for
more than three years.
So has Stephen King. King, at 32, is not only
author of The Shining, but is the genre's high
priest. By the end of this year, he will have a total
of 22 million copies of six novels (and one collec-
tion of short stories) in print, all of which deal
with the psychic, the supernatural or both, and all
of which have received, or are about to receive,
major movie treatment.
Living in relative seclusion with his wife and
three children in a small Maine town not all that
different from the one where he grew up or the
ones where so many of his stories are set, King is
nevertheless at the center of what has become, in
the last few years, a full-fledged Gothic revival.
It is a revival that he �- the product of a '50s
childhood full of issues of Fate magazine, Tales
from the Crypt comic books, and American In-
ternational horror movies � was ready for, and
that, commercially anyway, he may well outlive.
"Gothic though, doesn't mean what it used
to; it's not exoticism that underlies the revival's
success, but a kind of crazed colloquialism.
Reading Stephen King � whether The Shining,
Salem's Lot or The Dead Zone, King's current
hardcover best-seller � you are not transported
to a different world, exactly, no matter how many
vampire-stakings, acts of precognition and man-
eating laundry machine incidents you are privy
To the contrary, King's horror not only
assumes that author, reader and most of its
characters are roughly peers � with access to the
same brand names, song lyrics, route numbers,
television listings and issues of People magazine
� it actually demands a grounding in popular
King is currently writing Creepshow, a five-
segment, low-budget movie, in collaboration with
George Romero, director of the cult horror
classic Night of the Living Dead. Romero, whose
commitment to horror rivals King's, will also be
directing the film version of The Stand, King's
modern-dress treatment of the apocalypse theme.
King, who in 1973 was still teaching high school
English for $6,000 a year and who, before that,
had been working in a Bangor laundry for $60 a
week, is now "hot

Pined advance well in excess of $2 million; of
course, that's exclusive of foreigh rights and

Pollack � director of such sagas of dyed-in-the-
wool Americana as They Shoot Horses, Don't
they?, The Way We Were and The Electric
Horseman � has announced he will bring The

The Overlook Hotel, high in the Colorado
Rockies, dominates The Shining. The title refers
to 5-year-old hero Danny's ability to "shine to
see things that other people can't, to read minds
and peer into the future.
The father is Jack Torrance, a frustrated writer
who has just been fired from the private school
where he was teaching and coaching the debate
team, for giving one of his debaters a concussion.
Seems Jack, a reformed alcoholic, can't control
his temper, has even, a few years before, in a
rage, broken one of Danny's arms.

How To Drive Away A Roomie

your roommate like
different kinds of food.
This helps avoid having
a roomie eat you out of
house and home. There
have been students who
had to keep all their
food in other people's
refrigerators to keep it
out of reach of their
ravenous roomies.
There may come a
time when the absurdi-
ty of the situation
becomes too much, and
it becomes necessary to
get rid of your room-
mate. Two things to
remember are that the
most flagrantly obnox-
ious people never have
roommates and that
murder is frowned
upon by most dorm
hall advisors.
Have you ever
known two roommates
who particularly dislik-
ed each other and were
frantically determined
to drive the other one
out? Both will be stub-
born enough to not
move out, no matter
what. They go through
a war of attrition, br-
inging in their most ob-
noxious friends for par-
ties when the other is
trying to sleep or, if the
other is gone, eating up
all of their food. Peo-
ple have spent months
stubbornly enjoying the
misery of this kind of
domestic squabble.
If you need to drive
out a roommate,
remember to act
weirder than he does.
Try putting a sheet over
your head and chanting
obscure mantras. A
week of this will drive
him out, or make him
kill you. Burning you
roommate in effigy is a
useful hint that he is
unwanted; burning him
in person is in most
cases too drastic. A
James Bond-like device
called an "ejector bed"
is useful, but is not
practical if you don't
live on the top floor.
Letter bombs and even
transfer forms from the
Housing Office have
been used successfully.
Once your roommate
is gone, you may want
to avoid future trouble
by hanging onto your
coveted private room.
Stay away as much as
possible, to avoid con-
tact with prospective
roommates. Cultivate
eccentric interests, such
as tarantula growing or

Movie Violence Brings
In The Audiences

order, but all of it is to a greater � rather than to
a lesser � degree unnerving, some for good
reasons, some, as in the case of The Island, for
However, it is only a little more unnerving than
the hysterical outbursts that movies like The War-
riors prompt from politicians and other oppor-
tunists who know that the easiest way to attract
attention is to attack movie violence, as if that,
and not any number of a thousand other factors,
were responsible for the admittedly dreadful state
of the world.
Among some movie viewers, not necessarily
card-carrying critics or professional movie
viewers, a favorite line of reasoning is that movie
violence is evil because it instructs in the methods
of evil, and, what's worse, it is boring, although it
never seems to occur to them that if something is
really boring, then its power to instruct � to
seduce � must be minimal.
Through the wizardry of the special effects
men, we see heads lopped off, bullets passing
through (not just into) bodies, people burning
themselves up, people getting axed and slashed,
and even, and this is very big now, people getting
dismembered with lazer guns and swords or eaten
by zombies.
Even in the bad, last, hypocritical days of the
Production Code, we usually knew how things
would turn out generally, and it wasn't often that
we were surprised � and almost made ill � by a
shotgun going off in someone's face, on-screen.
A lot of this, as in The Island, is just bad drama
� or just no drama at all. Sometimes you wonder
� if you can distance yourself from the gore �
how the trick was rigged. All of this, over the long
run, is guaranteed, I think, to make us all a little
more callous. I'm speaking here of movies that,
for mc, could not support the violence they show.
There are some, however, that can, but everyone
has his own tolerance level.
The 1978 horror film Dawn of the Dead is not,
for example, my favorite movie, but despite the
excessive gore it is an intelligent one and one that
comes close to supporting the mayhem with
which it is so cvnlioitlv concluded.
The violence in an earlier film like A
Clockwork Orange is, by comparison, practically
poetic � not (in spite of everything you've read
up to now) as explicit as anything in a film like
The Island. It is a horror show, but cool, so
removed from reality that it would take someone
who really cherished his perversion to get any
vicarious pleasure from it.
To isolate its violence is to ignore everything
else that is at work in the movie � which is
nothing less than the fate of mankind.
One of the reasons, 1 think, that movies keep
pressing the outer limits of acceptability is that
although they are, on their visual surface,
realistic, they use up realistic actions so quickly
that the actions become as unreal as the formal
gestures of a ritual.
People once were shocked when gangsters in
movies of the thirties shot people on the screen
and the victims doubled up, as if they had suf-
fered sudden heart attacks. Not much blood, but
death was apparent.
We in the audience eventually see the make-
believe in the drama. The shootings had to
become more and more vivid to impress us, to ex-
cite us and � whether we like to believe it or not
� to give us pleasure. Now that the explicitness
has gone almost as far as it can go, as anyone who
has ever seen your average garden variety horror
film, like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, can tell
you, it may be that the margins of pleasure have
been exceeded, but after seeing and hearing the
crowds reaction to Chainsaw Massacre in
Mendenhall Student Center right here on campus
a few weeks ago, I seriously doubt it.
It may be about time, hopefully, anyway, for
movies to realize that they aren't realistic. They
are, for all the reality of their locales, and of their
actors and of their circumstances, only represen-
tations of reality and nothing more.
But showing us how a man looks when his head
is chopped off, a movie can capture our shocked
attention for a second or two, but it has said very
little about the nature of man we-didn't already
know, and absolutely nothing about the nature of
the poor man who was the victim � except that
he died violently.
