hall semester is projected to be
another record enrollment semester.
Approximately 2500 freshmen have
been admitted along with 500 to 600
re-admissions, 850 transfers, and
200 visiting students. The remainder
of the enrollment figure is made up looking onto this matter by explor
One big factor in off-campus ac-
comodations is that the people with
the money to build do not want to
overextend themselves. These peo-
some requests for August that had pie are looking ten and twenty years
been on the waiting list since
November.
According to Joe Laney of the
Greenville Housing Authority, the
future in student housing will lie in
in the future when enrollment will
doubtlessly decrease. The cause of
decreasing enrollment is that which
has plagued many educational in-
stitutions for the past twenty years,
the private market. ECU is already that is' the baby boom after World
of continuing students
There are expected to be 5500
students living in the dormitories. In
some situations three students may

rises,
ing the possibility of leasing com-
mercially owned apartments to rent
to students. As it is, housing in
Greenville has a vacancy rate of 1.8
percent according to Laney.
Also, in the women's high Another interesting fact is the high
the social rooms are being percentage of apartments compared
converted to living quarters for up
to six coeds per room.
Freshmen are being given a
preference in room assignments, but
the rule requiring Freshmen and
Sophomores to live on campus has
been suspended for the 1980-81
school year.
Another problem contributing to
the overcrowded dormitory life is
that increasing rent and utilities for
off-campus living apparently make
dormitory life more appealing to
upperclassmen. Rent for a one-
bedroom apartment usually ranges
from SI70 to $225. A year ago, rent
was usually between $160 and $175.
Off-campus housing will be dif-
ficult to find this fall. Eastbrook,
Village Green and King's Row,
which cater to ECU students were
full for the fall. River Bluff, still has
to all housing. Out of 12,000 units
in Greenville, about 3400 are apart-
ments or about one-fourth of the
housing in Greenville. Rising con-
struction rates and interest on finan-
cing have slowed down apartment
construction.
Older houses are also available
for rent to students, but they are
often overpriced and suffer from
landlord negligence, Laney said.
Some low income housing is
available to students if they meet
certain requirements. The basic pro-
blem lies in the fact that this type of
housing is aimed at families. Mar-
ried students could possibly qualify.
ALso, a single handicapped student
may qualify. But, unfortunately,
the single student does not.
Student housing is definitely a
problem that will continue to grow.
War 11. Since then the birth rate has
leveled off and today's college stu-
dent is on the last of the fringes of
that boom. However, at the rate
that Greenville is growing, this
paranoia seems needless. But until
enrollment decreases, Greenville
will continue to be a tight squeeze
for housing.

Aztecs Lose Karr To The Pirates
University officials announced
July 11 that Dr. Kenneth Karr of
San Diego State University will
become ECU Athletic Director, ef-
fective August 1. He will succeed
Bill Cain, who resigned the post in
May.
Karr comes to ECU after more
than ten years at San Diego State,
where he was Athletic Director bet-
ween 1969 and 1979. During his last
year there, Karr was chairman of
the Department of Athletics.
While at San Diego, Karr brought
Two Phases Of Renovation
For Drama Dept. Building
The renovations to McGinnis
Auditorium and the other drama
buildings are well underway. The
completed project will be part of the
new theater complex.
"This will be one of the finest
theatres in the Southeast said
Edgar Loessin, professor and
chairperson of the Drama Depart-
ment.
The renovations consist of two
phases. Phase I entails the renova-
tions of the auditorium and the
ballet studio. This first phase is ex-
pected to be completed in June of
1981 and will cost approximately
$1.9 million, according to James
Lowry, director of the Physical
Plant at ECU.
The second phase of renovations
involves the other Drama Depart-
ment buildings and includes the con-
struction of a separate scenery shop.
Phase II will cost about $1.12
million and should be finished in
December of 1981, Lowry said.
According to Loessin, the main
purpose of the renovations is to pro-
vide a good practical working place old theater complex was that there

the athletic program from a NCAA
Division II standing in 1968 to a suc-
cessful Division I contender. In
1977, San Diego's football team was
ranked in the top 20, and its basket-
ball team has competed in the
NCAA Western Regional two of the
last five years. The baseball team
has averaged over 45 wins per
season for the last four seasons.
Karr said his first priority at ECu
will be "securing a conference align-
ment, especially for basketball and
the non-revenue sports As in-
heritor of an athletic budget that
ended up in the red after the 1979-80
year, Karr has also expressed his
concern for maintaining a balanced
budget.
"It's necessary to manage
yourself well and build a cash
reserve, and we did that at San
Diego he said.
In announcing Karr's appoint-
ment, Chancellor Thomas Brewer
said that from among the 655 can-
didates who were considered for the
Dr. Kenneth Karr
job, Karr "clearly and quickly
emerged as the most gifted and
qualified to lead the program
There are some similarities bet-
ween San Diego's and ECU's
athletic programs. For a while, San
Diego's football team, like ECU's,
was independent. Kerr's eventual
success in bringing the Aztecs into
the Western Athletic Conference
was an important factor in his selec-
tion as ECU's new AD, said Dick
Blake, assistant to Chancellor
Brewer. Also decisive in Karr's ap-
pointment were Karr's record as an
outstanding schedule negotiator and
his across-the-board improvement
of women's and non-revenue sports,
Blake added.
Karr left Greenville Wednesday
morning for the trip back to
California, but is expected to be
back at ECU during the first week
of August.

New E4ilor
If they can ever manage to get
their machines twirling all over
eastern North Carolina, the three
men who own and operate Solar
Breeze stand to make some money.
Solar Breeze is a local, fledgling
company with a franchise to sell a
windmill manufactured by
Enertech, a pioneer in the wind
energy field. A few weeks ago,
Rodney Hill, Bill Williamson and
Matthew Boykin put up a working
windmill to advertise the new
business and at the same time, pro-
vide energy for their offices, which
are located on Highway 264 a cou-
ple miles out of Greenville.
But these July dog days aren't
producing much of a breeze, and the
windmill has usually been idle. Per-
ched atop a 60-foot telephone pole,
it looks more like a stranded Cessna
engine than a lucrative business
idea.
Still, Rodney Hill said it has
caught enough wind so far to
generate a little of the electricity us-
for outside energy.
Of course, the amount of wind
available in any given area deter-
mines how economical the system
will be for the buyer. Although the
wind is free, the most economical
windmill, including construction,
comes with a five- to six-thousand
dollar price tag.

thus because wind is actually a pro-
duct of the sun's effect on the at-

"In the last three weeks, I'd guess
about 300 people have stopped in to
ask about it Williamson said.
Basically,what the interested
visitor finds out is that the windmill

supplied by the public utilities.
it take for the windmill to pay for
itself in terms of savings in the light
bill?
Under very good wind conditions
� when the windmill can supply 60
percent of household electricity
needs � Williamson calculates that
the machine could pay for itself in
just over ten years, based on current
electricity prices and an average $70
monthly electric bill.
The problem is that Solar Breeze

National Scholarship Program
Established For Cancer Nurses
The American Cancer Society an-
nounced this month that it has
established a national scholarship
program for nurses who intend to
teach cancer nursing or to become
clinical specialists in cancer nursing.
Dr. S.B. Gusberg of New York
City, the Society's national presi-
dent, said that the new program will
become effective in 1981. Each
scholarship will cover annual sub-
sistence and tuition costs in the
amount of $8,000 for a maximum of
two years of full time study in a
graduate school of nursing. The
awards will be issued for only one
year at a time, but qualified ap-
plicants are expected to be renewed
for a second year. Up to ten new
scholarships will be awarded each
year.
Hie purpose of the: scholarship

Although the Society has long of-
fered a variety of fellowships for

complete a course leading to a

Last week Greenville Area Chamber of Commerce's
request for a referendum concerning liquor-by-the-
drink was turned down by the Greenville City Council.
This action prompted several Greenville area restaurant
owners to circulate a petition of their own.
However, it appears that the petition drive has run
aground. According to Cliff Everett Jr chairman of
the Pitt Board of Elections, the Alcoholic Beverage
Control Board has certain statues regarding the pro-
cedures for petitioning the ABC for a referendum.
The statutes require that the party, group or in-
dividual go to the board office and request a petition
form, which the board then must supply and date.
The petitions have to be circulated and returned to the
board within 90 days, according to Everett. When the
board issues teh petitions, public notification must be
made that the petitions are in circulation, Everett said.
After the petitions are returned, the board has 30 days
to verify the signatures. After the petitionsa re verified,
the board must hold the referendum within 120 days, he
said.
According to Everett, no one representing the
restaurant owners has requested a petition. He said he
was aware that the petitions were in circulation around
Greenville. September 19 is the latest date the referen-
dum could be held prior to the November 4 general elec-
tion, since the law stipulates that the referendum cannot
be conducted within 45 days of the general election.
According to Margaret Register, supervisor of the
Board of Elections, the petition group is unlikely to
complete the necessary requirements and gain the need-
ed signatures in time to hold the referendum prior to the
November 4 general election. The earliest possible date
for the referendum would be 45 days after the general
election, she said.

Buccaneer
White Elephant Publication
The Media Board meets today to
finalize the media budgets for the
1980-81 fiscal year. The board now
has the difficult task of cutting
$20,000 in order to balance its
budget. The annual blood-letting
process should take several hours
and will undoubtedly leave some
with a bitter pill to swallow.
Thus far the board has tentatively
approved the following activity fee
split between the respective media:
Buccaneer$72,215
The East Carolinian$44,725
WZMB$30,540
Rebel$15,443
Media Board
Executive Council$15,005
Photo Lab$12,346
Although these figures do not
necessarily represent the total
budgets of each medium, they do
show the amount of student activity
fees that will be used by each divi-
sion of ECU's media. For example,
The East Carolinian has a total
budget of $194,000, with $44,725
coming from student activity fees.
example does not necessarily
represent the budgets of the other
branches. Some media, by their
nature, cannot generate monies to
support themselves; instead, they
must be totally subsidized by the
student activity fees.
Every year the board must deter-
mine if the amount of fees invested
in a publication is meeting the needs
of the students.
One budget which deserves closer
examination is the Buccaneer
budget. Although the yearbook's
budget is not the largest, it does re-
quire the largest percentage of stu-
dent activity fees � 45 percent. The
$70,000 Buccaneer activity fee sub-
sidy represents a 20 percent increase
over the 1979-80 budget.
The obvious question is whether
the students of ECU want such an
extravagance.
No other medium has requested
such a high subsidy nor one that ap-
proaches $70,000. The East Caroli-
nian reduced its student fee
dependence by 22 percent this year.
Last year the Buccaneer printed
7,000 yearbooks and had 1,000 left
over. At an average cost of $8.60
each, roughly $8,600 was wasted.
This year the Buccaneer plans to
cutback the number of yearbooks to
5,000, yet the budget will increase
$10,000.
Even though every student is
theoretically entitled to a yearbook,
only one-third of the students can
get one. The average cost of $14 per
book is a lot of money, especially
when all students pay fees but only
5,000 will be able to get a book.
Yearbooks are a dying breed.
Many schools have opted to discon-
tinue their yearbooks because of
decreased popularity combined with
exorbitant costs. The Media Board
should see the writing on the wall.
The board cannot afford 20 percent
increases each year. With the over-
whelming majority of students say-
ing, in effect, they do not want a
yearbook, the Media Board should
consider phasing out the white
elephant of student publications.
Registration Good Idea
Monday will mark the first time
since 1975 that adult males will have
to register with the Selective Service.
Registration shouldn't be confused
with the draft. There will be no
Draft Boards or Draft Cards to con-
tend with. Only those who were
born in 1960 and 1961 will be re-
quired by law to register with the
Selective Service.
Registration will consist of filling
out a short form. The registrant will
be required to record his name, per-
manent and current address,
telephone number, social security
number and date of birth. Approx-
imately 90 days later, the registrant
will receive a letter acknowledging
his registration.
Selective Service registration
comes at a critical time when the
United States cannot afford to ap-
pear weak. John Collins, in his
book, American and Soviet Military
Trends Since the Cuban Missile
Crisis, had the following to say
about the U.S. Army compared to
the Soviet Army:
"A mammoth conscript army is
the traditional source of Soviet
general purpose force strength.
Other services are subsidiary,
despite the emergence of a modern
air force and navy. The much
smaller U.S. Army currently con-
sists of volunteers. Quantitative
gaps that favor the Soviet Union are
great in nearly every category
"Armies everywhere are still
manpower intensive, even in this
mechanized age. Active deployable
personnel strengths thus are
significant Soviet personnel, less
commandsupport, now outnumber
our own by almost three-to-one
(1,722,000 to 598,000)
Collins made these statements in
1978, prior to any events of the last
18 months, before the fall of Iran
and the invasion of Afghanistan. It
is interesting to note that his book
was prepared specifically for use by
Congress.
Although the American Civil
Liberties Union in an effort to stop
registration is suing the federal
government, registration will go on
as planned. In every post office in
the United States those born in 1960
and 1961 will begin registering Mon-
day. Considering the consequences,
it's a very good idea. President
Carter's only fault may be that he
did not institute the registration
sooner.

Helms not Embarassment
Though 1 may have serious political
and philosophical differences with Sen.
Jesse Helms (RN.C), I would not
under any circumstances refer to him as
an embarassment to the state of North
Carolina. How could any elected of-
ficial, who legitimately represents the
concerns and interests of his consti-
tuents, be an embarassment to those
who saw fit to put him in office? It also
seemed irresponsible for a representative
of the newspaper to refer to Sen. Helms
as "Senator No especially in regard to
maintaining a consistent approach to
one whom has received editorial support
in the past.
Foolhardy reactionism should not be
the policy of an editorial column if it
wishes to maintain the respect of its
readers. This country was founded on
the principle of free speech and political
debate, and Jesse Helms represents the
ideology of one of the major com-
ponents of our political system, the con-
servative philosophy. If the country is to
further grow, it must realize that a vital
component of compromise is to
recognize that one's political opponent
has just as valid a conception of the
world as the one we possess.
To refer to Jesse Helms as an em-
barassment is to deny him the respect
that he has earned by becoming one of
themost vocal supporters of his view of
the American system. Though I do not
agree with Sen. Helms, I respect his
stature in the American political ideal. 1
regret that he was deemed an embarass-
ment, and I am indeed embarassed that
we should not have the proper respect
for a great statesman.

tionaries perhaps a quote from the Bi-
ble would suffice: "Let he who is

Republicans 'all smiles in Detroit'
By RICHARD GREEN
Oawral Manager
Andy kooney, the CBS commentator
for the weekly news magazine 60 Minutes,
attempted to explain the complicated pro-
cess of nominating and electing a presi-
dent. In a special edition of 60 minutes on
Monday night, Rooney began a descrip-
tion of each step of the process with, "It's
just this simple but none of the steps
ended up being simple, or even logical.
His comments about the way we choose
a president were amusing and confusing at
the same time, but he stopped one step
short of explaining who could be choosing
the next president of the United States �
the U.S. House of Representatives. Well,
it's not really the House. Each state gets
one vote, and it doesn't have to vote for
the candidate who received the most votes
in the electoral college. How could this
happen?
While the GOP Convention seems to be
rolling along rather smoothly this year, the
Democrats are far from unified. Teddy
Kennedy and Jimmy Carter are battling
for the soul of their party. The track
record of the Democratic administration
will be hard to live down with any 1980
platform. Likewise, Billy Carter's recent
dealings with the Libyan government
won't help matters any. And if predictions
are correct, Independent candidate John,
Anderson will gain the votes of dishearten-
ed Democrats.
Republicans are all smiles in Detroit this
year because they think they have a can-
didate who can win. To be sure, the GOP
is more united for Ronald Reagan than it
has been for any other candidate in its
history, with the exception of Richard Nix-
on. But some creaky planks in the 1980
platform and the choice of a vice presiden-
tial candidate still lurk behind all those
CITilME
Phyllis Schlafly, of Illinois, a GOP
leader of the far right, suggests: "We're
smarter now, and more pragmatic
Republicans are certainly smarter in that
they have rallied behind the candidate who
has received the most votes in the
primaries. To strengthen the Democratic
party, Kennedy would have been smart so
drop out a long time ago, but he is stan-
ding up for principles.
The GOP is certainly more pragmatic
now, having dealt sharply with such issues
as abortion, the ERA, defense spending
and social programs. Riding the tide of the
recent Supreme Court decision on abortion
would seem logical enough, but withdraw-
ing 40 years of support for the ERA may
hurt more than it will help. Increasing
defense spending at the expense of social
programs will certainly alienate less for-
tunate voters, not to mention the kind of
increases for defense.
The Republicans want long-range
bombers, which probably couldn't make it
past Soviet defense systems; more sea-
launch cruise missiles, which would in-
crease the national nuclear stockpile; and
the MX system, which will be obsolete
before it is completed. More so than the
Democrats, the Republicans have
overlooked the force which makes the U.S.
Armed Forces tick � personnel.
How does all of this affect the choice of
the president? Both major parties could
drive voters to the middle of the road, the
Independent party, and the result could be
that no candidate will receive a majority in
the electoral college. What happens then?
The issue goes to the House of Represen-
tatives where each state casts one vote for
the candidate of its choice, and the one
receiving a majority of votes becomes the
president of the United States.
If the Republican platform and the
Democratic disunity and track record drive
a significant number of voters to the In-
dependent party, the final decision could
very Ukely be made in the House. In 1824,
the House was forced to decide between
Andrew Jackson and John Quincy Adams
because there was no plurality in the elec-
toral college. Henry Clay, third runner up
in that election, was the verv powerful
speaker of the House, and he used his in-
fluence to elect Adams over Jackson,
although Jackson received more popular
votes. If Ronald Reagan should in
without a majority of the popular vote, a
predominantly Democratic House could
choose Jimmy Carter for a second term.
Of course voters could simply go with a
winner instead of a candidate they feel will
do the best job, but there is good chance
that the people will not choose the presi-
dent of the United States in this
tumultuous year of 1980. And that isn't
simple or logical.

Thought Control
Happy customers spend money and are
more susceptible to sales pitches. Hap-
py employees are more productive and
more productive employees make for a
more profitable business.
By JON YUHAS
sisianl Kralum Kdilor
Welcome to the world of thought control. "Big
Brother the insidious voice that followed Orwell's
protagonist about in 1984, is here now. Even on cam-
pus, right here at ECU, you are not safe. He is in every
major shopping area and restaurant in this country. Of
course 1 am speaking of Muzak � or any of the canned
boredom that is broadcast into public areas.
Muzak is a private corporation that sells franchises
throughout the world. Every city and town in North
Carolina is covered by one of the Muzak franchises. The
local outfit is located in Kinston and covers ten coun-
ties.
Muzak is the largest company of its kind in the world.
There are Muzak franchises in Europe, Asia and South
America. Any competition that the company has is
strictly on the local level. Here in Greenville, for in-
stance, the competition is from the area radio stations;
W1TN and WGBR offer background music services, as
does Capital Broadcasting Company in Raleigh.
Muzak's headquarters is in New York and employs a
full-time staff of psychologists and psychiatrists who
analyze music and change it to eliminate heavy beats
and distracting vocals. Then the Muzak orchestra
records the new music and a tape is circulated among
the franchises around the country. This year, however,
the company is going to satelite broadcasting and in the
next few months the tape system will be eliminated. In-
stead, each Muzak franchise will receive the same
music, which will be played simultaneously in every
business that subscribes to the Muzak service.
Muzak is also broadcast into some industrial firms
because a recent study done at Black and Decker's home
plant in Pennsylvania shows that Muzak increases
worker productivity. Muzak in Rocky Mount services
approximately 50 industrial firms and approximately
300 firms total. Joe Warner, operator of Muzak of
Rocky Mount, says that his operation is a small one.
Imagine, then, the number of firms that a large opera-
tion in a highly populated area would service.
According to Warner, the music is stripped of
anything that is potentially distracting. "Anything that
makes you tap your feet or makes you want to sing
along" would not be appropriate to the Muzak mission
and is therefore eliminated.
The purpose of the background music is to motivate
the listener subconsciously. So-called foreground music
� that broadcast by commercial radio stations � com-
mands conscious attention. Muzak creates a feeling of
well-being and warmth without ever making the listener
aware that he is even listening at all.
Happy customers spend money and are more suscep-
tible to sales pitches. Happy employees are mc e pro-
ductive and more productive employees make for a
more profitable business.
The secret of Muzak's effectiveness is its appeal to the
subconscious. If a person concentrates on listening to
the music, then the spell is broken; the sound is bland
and dull and the effect created is the opposite of the one
intended. The feeling caused is anything but well-being
and warmth. The listener becomes angry or disap-
pointed and is not a happy shopper or worker.
When Muzak goes to satellite the effects will be far-
reaching. Imagine, all of the customers in all of the
businesses and industries that receive Muzak will be
hearing the same music, or more importantly, not hear-
ing the same music, but being affected by it nonetheless.
These people take music by modern composers such
as Lennon and McCartney and Jim Morrison and even
Bob Seger and turn it into something completely
unrecognizable, at least as music. Then they use it as a
weapon in the commercial wars that go on every day.
Your mood is being manipulated while you ride in
elevators, talk on the phone, eat in restaurants, and
shop in department stores.
How long before THEY come into your home,
pushing a dope that is as addictive as any now available.
Big Brother is getting closer.
Muzak brings on the days of 1984 with a new "Big Brother" that watches you in the mall
andsome take it docilely while others react with angry violence.
Alternatives To The Old-fashioned Wedding
ByJ.C. BARDEN
r� orW Times
NEW YORK � When Mary Sheehan and David
Naka began planning their wedding earlier this year in
Washington, her parents were expecting to pay for a
formal wedding and a reception for more than 100
guests. But the longer the couple looked into the costs of
a reception the more disenchanted they became with the
idea of having her parents pay about $5,000 for an
afternoon of food and drinks.
What they did, instead, when they were married last
month was have a families-only wedding and set aside
part of the money her parents would have spent on the
reception. "My parents wanted to give us money when 1
told them how we felt Mary Sheehan said, "so we're
investing it in the money market and maybe will use it
later to help pay for a house
They are just one of many young couples who are do-
ing something different instead of having the bride's
parents spend thousands of dollars on weddings and
receptions. They range from the couple's splitting the
costs themselves to letting the bridegroom or his parents
pay for everything. And sometimes, like Mary Sheehan
and David Naka, they prefer the money rather than a
reception.
All of this is perfectly proper, according to Letitia
Baldrige, who amplified and updated "The Amy
Vanderbilt Complete Book of Etiquette" (Doubleday,

Miss Baldrige in an interview. "But this is the one time

tradition of the bride's parents paying the big bills
related to a wedding is one "meant to change in an in-
telligent fashion she wrote in the revised version.
It already has been changing, under the influence of
the women's movement and women's increased earning
power, along with the inflationary economy.
A young couple who married several years ago in a
New Jersey college town paid all of the costs of their
formal wedding and a reception. "My father offered to
pay for everything said the woman, "but that would
have meant having the wedding four months later and
500 miles south of where we wanted to be
A caterer on Long Island said he began noticing the
changing style in who was picking up the reception tab
six or seven years ago. Sonny Dee said it had reached the
point where he found that roughly a third of his recep-
tions were paid for by the bride's parents, another third
by the bride and bridegroom's parents, and most of the
rest by the bride and bridegroom. Then there are the oc-
casional cases in which the bridegroom or his family
pays for everything, he said.
"A lot of these young people will live together four or
five years before deciding to marry another caterer
said, "and when they do they just don't feel like their
parents should pay any of the costs
They are saving the parents a lot of money. There
were 2.2 million marriages in the United States last year
and even in the least expensive areas of the country a
reception with food and champagne will cost $25 per
person, according to Miss Baldrige. And Bride's
Magazine reports that its 300,000 readers spend an
average of $2,500 on receptions.
A top-of-the-line price for a reception in New York
City can run $100 a guest when catered in the home.
When the prospective bride and groom or their parents
don't agree on who is to pay for what in advance, as ad-
vised by Miss Baldrige, it can lead to some fractious and
embarassing confrontations.

Who Career Is
A Lesson In
Rock History
By DOUG SMITH
Staff Writer
Since 1963, a group known as The Who has
taken its fans on a rock and roll odyssey. The
group's history sounds like a synopsis of the rock
and roll generation � a rollercoaster ride of
good times and downfalls and a 17-year state-
ment of survival.
The Who are the most brilliant expression of
the most influential "youth movement" ever to
take Great Britain, the Mods. Their career began
in Sheperd's Bush, a lower class suburb of Lon-
don, and took them through such places as
Brighton-by-the-sea, scene of the great Mod-
Rocker battles of the early sixties.
Their first recording was "My Generation
Peter Townshend, the well-known guitarist, is
the group's main force, the author of most of
their material, the composer of most of the music
and the impetus behind the Who's stylistic
stance.
The Who's generation has gotten older and the
change is shown in their records: from "The Kids
are Alright" to "Happy Jack from "My

Great Courses
By DAVID NORRIS
Stall Writer
East Carolina University offers its students their
choice of many fields of study: art, music, drama,
English, education, and others. But perhaps the largest
department at ECU is the Department of Downtown
and Partying. This course of study is among the most
grueling, exhausting, expensive and time-consuming of-
fered at any university in the world. Some excerpts from
the introductory DAP textbook will give you an idea of
what the students in this department have to go
through.
I. Required Supplies
To stay in the Downtown and Party department, one
must invest a great sum of money in supplies. A
refrigerator is necessary for storage of study and
research equipment and supplies such as beer, wine and
various mixers. A valid college I.D. card is needed to
gain admission to the classrooms downtown. Specific
courses require various supplies, which will be discussed
later.
II. The Courses - foundation
DP majors must complete rigorous course re-
quirements. If you join this department, you must suc-
cessfully complete such tough courses as:
Beer Appreciation. This popular, but difficult
freshman course introduces the students to about 750

.THE EAST CAROLINIAN
JULY 17, 1980
The Picturesque Outer Banks
Take A Watery Tour
By JIM HAMMOND
WUmiaftoa Star Newt
When the first Euro-
pean explorers touched
on the shores of North
Carolina they were con-
fronted with a
labyrinth of shifting
sandy islands, shallow
inlets and sounds and a
harsh coastal environ-
ment which doomed
early attempts to settle
the region.
While the Outer
Banks was the site of
the earliest attempt at
colonization in the
Carolinas, that same
area was later to be
characterized by its
isolation from the rest
of colonial America. It
became a prison for
persons shipwrecked on
its shores, a haven for
pirates and other cut-
throats and eventually
home to a hardy breed
of folks who still betray
a trace of their
Elizabethan heritage in
their speech.
Much of that early
Tidewater Carolina
heritage can be ex-
perienced in a long
weekend trip, crossing
the sounds and rivers
on the numerous
automobile ferries
operated by the state
Department of
Transportation. This
fleet of barge-like boats
effectively bridges the
waterways that for cen-
turies were barriers to
communication bet-
ween the isolated com-
munities of eastern
North Carolina.
By using these fer-
ries, one can spend a
leisurely three days
circling most of the
3,600 square miles of
water in Tidewater
North Carolina.
Begin by crossing the
Neuse River where it
empties into the
Pamlico sound. The
ferry landing is not far
from Cherry Point
Marine Air Station at
Havelock. A 20-30
minute ride brings one
to the north shore at
Minnesott Beach.
A few miles east is
the village of Oriental,
a fishing village that is
fast becoming a

popular stopover for
pleasure boaters travel-
ing the Atlantic In-
tracoastal Waterway.
The picturesque com-
munity has a couple of
pleasant restaurants
and motels and many
fishing and sailing
boats for those who
like to look at such
things.
For those who chose
to avoid the Neuse
River ferry, continue
north on U.S. 17 from
Wilmington to New
Bern, site of the Tyron
Palace, the colonial
capital of North
Carolina. The restored
colonial mansion is
open for public tours
and is also a pleasant
first stop on the
Tidewater Tour.
The next waterborne
leg of the tour starts at
Aurora on the southern
shore of the Pamlico
River. The ferry will
deposit you on the nor-
thern shore just east of
historic Bath.

beers, which he must learn to identify, along with
75 types of ale. Hangover remedies are also
discussed in detail.
Partying Survey. A basic introduction to col-
lege partying. Freshmen learn how to set up kegs,
make PJ, and build up the necessary stamina to
survive four (or more) years of constant partying.
Annoyance and Rudeness I. (Replaces Hell-
Raising) The student learns how to give loud
Rebel yells at odd hours when neightbors have 8
a m. exams; how to wake up roommates; how to
throw up all over the bathroom so nobody can go
into it; and how to insult andor throw things at
people from cars.
Booze Survey. (Prerequisite: Beer Apprecia-
tion) This survey continues the freshman's in-
troduction to alcohol, beginning with cheap wine
and covering rum, whiskey, gin, vodka and
others at the discretion of the instructor.
Booze History. This course covers the history
of alcoholic partying, beginning with mead and
continuing with ale, rum, rotgut whiskey and
bathtub gin. Special emphasis in the 1980-81 term
is on medieval and baroque tavern brawling and
its evolution into the American saloon fight.
Tour
Philosophy of Partying. An introduction and
inquiry into the intellectual motivations and
philosophical questions that trouble partyers.
Chugging. Beginning students learn skills and
methods of chugging. To pass successfully, the
student must chug a keg of beer in twelve seconds
or less.
III. The Courses - Major Departments
After successful completion of the foundation
courses, the student may apply for admission to
the upper school. He has his choice of several ma-
jors including disco, barhorping, rednecking and
hanging out. A few upper level courses will be
discussed here.
Disco Dancing I, II, and III. Students master
the skills of the bump, the "hustle etc. Instuc-
tional films such as "Saturday Night Fever" are
included.
The Poetry of Disco. Members of the English
faculty discuss and explore the themes of man's
loneliness and alienation in an industrial society;
mortality and insignificance in an infinite
universe; and the existentialist crisis, as treated in
such masterpieces as "Macho Man "Get up
and Boogie" and "Disco Duck
Cruising Around. This course covers sitting in
parking lots, outrunning police cars, and
shooting mailboxes and dogs, as well as basic
mechanical skills, such as souping up engines.
Problems in Barhopping. This graduate course
includes a field trip to New York and Los
Angeles, giving experience in partying situations
in other cities.
Introduction to Punk. This new course covers
punk fashions and music, as well as the lifestyle.
Required materials: leather jacket, safety pins,
punk buttons, and a diet of pizza and beer.
Students must be experienced in smashing disco
records.
Overall, the Downtown major suffers more
hardship than any other student. The booze
survey class often costs 150 dollars a month. The
weeklong parties required in Partying II leave the
student no time for his unimportant general col-
lege requirements; often, they don't have enough
time to even get a good grade in Library Science.
All-night beer socials ruin TV-watching, as well
as take their toll on the students health. If you
want to just have a good time and take crip
courses here at ECU, this department is not the
one. Pick something easy, like nuclear physics.
home there and, in-
deed, his wife was from
this small town on the
Pamlico River. The
notorious pirate was
finally in a battle with
British ships in the
waters near Ocracoke
Island in 1718. Bath
celebrates its connec-
tion with the pirate in
an outdoor drama
presented Thursday
through Saturday in the
summer months.
The visit to Bath
over, resume your
eastward tour through
the villages of Swan
Quarter, Englehard
and Stumpy Point. The
drive along U.S. 264
toward Manteo shows a
sparsely populated
region where
livelihoods depend on
fishing and farming.
An alternate route
for your tour would
take you by ferry from
Swan Quarter to
Ocracoke Island on the
Outer Banks. But that
alternative would re-
quire precise planning,
as the ferry only
operates twice daily.
If you continue to
Manteo on Roanoke
Island, the history of
the early attempts to
settle North Carolina
awaits in the dramatic
presentation of The
Lost Colony. One of
the most popular and
long-running of North
Carolina's outdoor
dramas, the play is in
its 40th season and is
presented June through
August.
Only a short drive
away are the beaches of
Nags Head, Kill Devil
Hills and Kitty Hawk.
There one can climb the
highest sand dunes on
the East Coast at
Jockey Ridge � or fly
a hand glider off its
summit.
Nearby is the site of
the world's first
machine-powered
flight, where the
Wright brothers loosed
man from the bounds
of earth. A small
museum depicts the
event in pictures and
exhibits, including a
replica of the plane.
Turning south on the
Outer Banks, the
traveler soon en-
counters one of the sen-
tinels of the Carolina
coast, the Bodie Island
lighthouse. The
lighthouse itself is not
open to the public, but
there is a small nature
museum on the
grounds for the public.
Next follow Oregon
Inlet and the first at-
tempt to connect the
shifting sands of the
Outer Banks by bridge.
The high span bridge is
the subject of con-
troversy years after its
completion because the
changing inlet now
threatens the multi-
million dollar span.
Much of Ocracoke
Island is part of Cape
Hatteras National
Seashore, as is much of
Hatteras Island. At the
extreme southern end
of Ocracoke Island is

Generation" to "Quadrophenia" to the
drugged-out crowds at their concerts.
Certainly, the changes will continue.
Pete Townshend calls their history "A great
knapsack � you carry it around, and nobody
ever empties it But it is that sense of history,
that survival instinct, that seems to pick the
group up and carry it past the bad times, no mat-
ter how tragic.
And so the Who carried their "great knap-
sack" into the Greensboro Coliseum and played
to a sellout crowd on July 13. But it was their
music and not their history that brought the
crowd to its collective feet and kept them there.
Willie Nile opened the concert with his own
brand of the Dylan-Forbert-Springsteen style of
music. The crowd was still filing in, resembling a
cloud of bees hovering over a honeycomb, as
they tried to find their seats. There was a tension
in the air, an expectation of something to follow,
as Nile played through the main portion of his
only album.
And then came the chant for the Who, a rising
scream from the crowd. The lights were shut off
and the crowd watched as a band of survivors
walked on the stage. Daltrey and Jones were
dressed in jeans and t-shirts, looking like two
average college students, Entwistle was clothed
in a red suit, which set him off from the rest of
the band, and Townshend in a bluejacket looked
all the more like a rock and roll hero.
Picking up their instruments, they sized up the
audience for a moment, and then flashed into a
musical repertoire few bands can equal. The
Who played what the audience had come to hear
� rock and roll classics like "Substitute" and "I
Can't Explain two of the earliest Who songs; a
medley from the rock opera, Tommy; and the
anthems "My Generation" and the recent "Who
Are You
Some of the songs the Who played were over
15 years old, but they played each one with a
rawness and a savage edge as though they were
discovering it for the first time.
I
Added to the great music was an unbelievable
light show which increased the excitement flow-
ing through the arena. The concert reached a
climax with "I Can See For Miles" and its
breathless harmony.
At the end of the concert, the crowd seemed
drained of energy. The houselights came up and
everyone slowly left, having savored over two
hours of Townshend's leaps, Daltrey's dancing
and good music. They got what they wanted -
?eXi,ent r0ck and ro11 concert- And so, the
Who Odyssey continues.
