ment figures, there were 891
nineteen-year-old males and 925
twenty-year-old males enrolled at
ECU last year.
Based on average enrollment
figures and the fact that for the past
three or four years, females have
comprised about 55 percent of total
enrollment. Icl has roughly 1800

Student Life, Student Supply
ECU To Have Two Student Calendars
1 Cl students will be faced with
the unusual prospect this fall of get-
ting two for the "price" of one. It
seems thai there will be two separate
publications of the student calen-
dar .
The student calendar, which con-
tains pertinent information concern-
ing student activities and programs,
has in the past been printed and
distributed by the student supply
store. Now, however, the Office of
Si .Jem Life has decided to print its
own calendar.
Joseph Clark, director of the Stu-
deni Supply Store, said that the
calendar was started years ago as a
service to the students and as a
public relations tool for the Student
Supply Store. The calendar. Clark
said, has traditionally contained in-
formation concerning the services
provided by the Supply Store for the
student, as well as information
about student activities.
�"Our calendar Clark stated,
"has come to be recognized as the
official calendar of activities In
the beginning, he said, the Supply
Store compiled all of the informa-
tion for the calendar. During this
time, he said, the Mendenhall pro-
gramming staff also compiled its
own information concerning stu-
dent activities.
Instead of continuing to duplicate
the effort, Clark said that the Supp-
ly Store and Mendenhall staff decid-
ed to coordinate the calendar. The
Mendenhall staff continued its com-
pilation of activities information,
but the Supply Store was in charge
of layout and distribution of the
calendar, according to Clark.
Clark said that the calendar,
which is distributed at no cost to the
student, will continue to be publish-
ed by the Student Supply Store, as
in the past. The Supply Store, Clark
said, covers the cost of printing the
But there will also be another
calendar of activities that will be
distributed at no cost to the student.
Dr. Elmer Meyer, vice chancellor
for Student Life, said that his office
is sponsoring a calendar of activities
and information.
In addition to activities informa-
tion, Mever's calendar will contain
information concerning student ser-
vices and university programs.
Meyer said that he felt that there
was a need for more general infor-
mation that could be made available
to the student. This feeling, he said,
stemmed from a report by a task
force of the Student Services Com-
mittee. The report said, among
other things, that students did not
know where to go for information
concerning services that were of-
fered at the university.
Meyer's calendar will contain in-
formation that might be found in a
student handbook. ECU has not
had a handbook for a while, he said,
and he feels there is a real need for

SfN t dilor
A rock group whose members are
all ECU students is considering legal
action against the Washington
chapter of the Jaycees for failure to
give the band a cash award for win-
ning a "battle of the bands" concert
held in Beaufort County last month.
Also involved in the complaint is
WSFL-FM radio in New Bern, N.C.
The group, called Glisson, has re-
tained a Greenville lawyer to look
into band member Tom Glisson's
charge that the Washington Jaycees
and WSFL, indirectly, led the 12
bands who participated in the June
21 event to believe that the winning
group would receive a percentage of
the gate receipts, but then failed to
Steve Nobles, a Washington ac-
countant who is president of the
Jaycee chapter, said Wednesday
that "no percentage was ever men-
tioned adding that his chapter
"just simply doesn't have the
In the middle of these conflicting
statements is WSFL-FM radio sta-
tion, which promoted the concert
for the Jaycees. According to Sta-
tion Manager Ed Seeger, the Jaycees
approached the station for help in
promoting its Summer Festival, the
Jaycees' fundraising effort this
year, which included events such as
a dance, a raft race, helicopter
shows and a bicycle race.
Nobles said that WSFL suggested
the idea of the rock contest. The
radio station had promoted a
similar contest between area rock
bands last year, said Seeger.
According to Nobles, Seeger had
led the Jaycees to expect that as
many as three or four thousand peo-
ple would attend such an event. The
actual attendance was about 800
people. Nobles said. Partly because
of the low attendance. Nobles said,
the Washington Jaycees ended up
losing around $1000 on the Summer
Festival as a whole.
"We certainly were disappointed
with the results themselves Nobles
But when asked whether there
had been an oral agreement with the
Jaycees to pay the top three bands a
percentage of the gate, Seeger
replied, "That's what the discussion
between myself and the Jaycees was
about, that there would be a trophy
and a percentage
Seeger noted that another part of
the deal was that the winning group
would be aided by WSFL in getting
record companies to listen to a
demonstration tape of the group.
Tom Glisson said Tuesday that this
part of the understanding had been
carried out.
WSFL's role in the matter was to
advertise the contest and act as the
coordinator for the bands who
agreed to play. The station also
broadcast the event. The Jaycees
gave the station money to cover part
of their costs in the remote broad-
cast, according to Seeger.
According to Glisson, Nobles said
in a telephone conversation that the
total receipts were about $2300.
Neither Glisson nor Seeger ould
verify the amount taken in,
however, because the Jaycees said
the money had been immediately
placed in a bank.
Glisson said that he had had no
direct communication with the
Jaycees before the event and that
the band was going by what Seeger
told them.
Seeger said that while the ;dea of

ECU students who will want to
vote in this fall's elections are
reminded that they should
register with the board of elec-
tions in their home county.
The deadline for registering to
vote in the Nov. 4 general elec-
tion is at 5 p.m. on Oct. 6, accor-
ding to Mrs. Margaret Register of
the Pitt County Board of Elec-
"Voting by absentee ballot is a
simple procedure and can be
done by applying for an absentee
ballot 60 days prior to the elec-
tion Mrs. Register said.
A person may apply by mail or
have a close relative obtain the
absentee ballot up to Oct. 29. The
ballot must then be returned to
the local (home county) board of
elections by 5 p.m. on Nov. 3, the
day prior to the election.
The important thing now, Mrs.
Register said, is that those who
want to vote in November make
sure that they are registered in
their home counties and obtain
absentee ballots.
suft V riler
Though summer is a traditionally
difficult time to find marijuana, this
summer has been the worst in
several years.
While no one can seem to put a
finger directly on the reason, several
theories prevail.
The time of year may be one fac-
tor. Petty Officer Mike Kelly of the
Coast Guard's Public Affairs Office
in Miami stated that "We're in the
middle of the traditional off-season
lull, but during the Cuban sealift,
there have been two seizures totaling
about nine tons of marijuana Kel-
ly explained that the "off-season
lull" lasted from April to July when
harvests in South America are at a
minimum. Kelly also stated that
most of the marijuana smuggled in-
to the east coast comes from Colom-
bia and that the Coast Guard in-
tercepted 1,321,000 tons of mari-
juana last year.
Another theory is that the Cuban
sealift has distracted would-be
smugglers away from the marijuana
"There is some truth in that
said Con Dougherty, an official in
the Drug Enforcement Agency's
regional office in Miami. "A lot of
people who would normally be
smuggling marijuana are now tak-
ing refugees into Florida for about
$1000 a head. They're probably
making more money and it's a less
dangerous business
Dougherty said also that the last
two years had seen an overall
decrease in drug seizures by the
Coast Guard and the state and
federal enforcement agencies.
"1978 was a banner year for the
so-called mother ships he said.
Dougherty explained that mother
ships are large vessels that carry
huge amounts of marijuana along
the eastern coast, where smaller
boats pull alongside to off-load
various quantities. "They're not
anywhere near as commonplace as
they were two years ago Dougher-
ty said.
Dougherty believes that Coast
Guard interception of mother ships
in 1978, including the Heidi, stop-
ped with 112 tons of pot on board,
has scared such large-scale smug-
glers further north and west of the
Florida region.
A third theory is that the people
responsible for bringing mass quan-
tities into the Greenville area are the
same people that grow much of the
home-grown marijuana. By forcibly
keeping marijuana out of the area,
they are hoping to inflate the price
of home-grown marijuana which
has in the past sold for SI5 per
ounce on the street, according to
underground sources. Indeed,
hybrid sinsemilla grown in the
Greenville area has already surfac-
ed, costing as much as $60 per
ounce, according to sources. This
theory, under closer scrutiny,
however, seems steeped in paranoia
since sources from Elizabeth City to
Raleigh indicate one common
denominator: there is little mari-
juana anywhere.
How are smokers affected by the
marijuana drought? Some have
commented that they are using other
drugs more often, such as
Quaaludes, which are strong
Strangely enough, the supply of
other drugs has not decreased, ac-
cording to local drug dealers. Many
dealers reported that they cannot
keep enough depressants around,
and that they sell out quickly. These
sources indicate that even
Quaaludes are still fairly abundant.
Many of these are "bootlegs pills
that are made independently in Col-
ombia rather than stolen phar-
maceutical pills, the dealers report.

College Notes
From The National On Campus Report
BENCHWARMER BOB Lurtsema, a former
Minnesota Viking lineman, was the landslide
winner of the race for U. of Minnesota-Twin
Cities student body president. Lurtsema, who
also won the primary as a write-in candidate, is,
of course, not eligible for the post since he isn't
a UM student. But that didn't keep Lurtsema,
and the student group which pushed his can-
didacy, from celebrating the win. The students
sa they wanted student government leaders to
realize how many students think their campus
government is a joke.
A TWINKIE FEST earned both criticism and
praise at Rochester (Minn.) Community Col-
lege. The event, an advertising promotion for
Wonder Bread which donated Twinkies
featured a Twinkie stuff, a Twinkie Eat-off, a
Twinkie toss and other events built around the
popular cupcakes. Although participation was
good, some students complained that the
festival was juvenile, gave the school a bad im-
age and wasted both time and food.
SOUTHPAWS should get special considera-
tion, according to the Virginia Tech student
government. Earlier this year, that body passed
a resolution favoring installation of left-handed
pencil sharpeners in all classrooms, while
recently it passed another resolution favoring
purchase of 12 percent left-handed desks for all
classrooms. The student government cited a
survey showing that,left-handers increase their
anting speed 3.5 percent when given left-
handed desks.
SEVEN SPORTS were recently cut from the U
ot Colorado athletic program and a $20 student
!eAn'ml,ated to ba,ance th-e budget. About
$360,000 is expected to be saved by dropping
such non-revenue sports as men's baseball and
wrestling and both men's and women's swimm-
ing and gymnastics.
A BILL TO HELP "RESCUE" young people
from religious cults was recently approved by
the New York State Senate. The bill allows a
judge to appoint a legal conservator to super-
vise persons who have "undergone a sudden
and radical change in behavior, lifestyle, habits
and attitudes
FREEDOM OF SPEECH is t. . ocus of con-
troversy at the U. of Kansas, where 12 people
were arrested for displaying banners during
commencement ceremonies. The 12, including
one faculty member, were protesting a board of
regents policy against political advertising and a
university policy forbidding banners. The
American Civil Liberties Union has indicated it
may tile a suit against the university, claiming
the policy restricts freedom of speech. Both a
chancellors committee and a faculty group have
recommended changing the policies to permit
greater expression.

Charlie Sherrod
SGA President Cuts Spending
Although SGA President Charlie
Sherrod has been in office only four
months, his impact is already being
felt. Sherrod has taken the office,
weakened by the previous ad-
ministration, and turned it into a
positive force on behalf of students.
Unlike his predecessor, Sherrod is
a conservative spender. The Sum-
mer Legislature, breaking with past
tradition, appropriated no money to
non-SGA groups this summer.
The Transit System is now using
the smaller athletic vans to conserve
fuel. The larger buses are used only
when necessary.
When Sherrod was vice president,
he recommended to the legislature
that a change be made in the ap-
propriation of funds to the Transit
System. The legislature enacted a
provision that required all unex-
pended monies to revert to a special
"bus fund" at the end of the fiscal
year. When the money reverted last
month, the Transit System had
more than $17,000 to purchase a
new bus.
Sherrod is now preparing a com-
prehensive student handbook,
which will include everything from
the SGA Constitution to the student
Honor Code. In the past, each SGA
document has been prepared
separately. Last year it cost $5,000
to print all of the documents. This
year, by combining everything into
a comprehensive handbook, the
total cost will be $3,000.
SGA isn't the only place Sherrod
has been working to save money
and increase efficiency. He has
worked hard as a member of the
Media Board to cut waste. During
last week's meeting, he was in-
strumental in cutting the Buccaneer
budget. By doing so, he may have
saved ECU students $30,000.
Waste is not the only thing Sher-
rod has spared the students of ECU:
For the first time in more than a
year there is no internal fighting in
student government. The SGA is
now running smoothly, and
students should be thankful �
they're the ones who reap the
Media Board Cuts Buc;
Saves Student Money
One more word on the student
yearbook, the Buccaneer:
Last week the Media Board met
for continued discussion of the
media budgets and to cut enough
money to balance the budget.
Because the board needed to cut
more than $20,000, it faced the dif-
ficult task of deciding which ser-
vices most benefitted students and
which services could stand cutting.
The budgets, as they were given
final approval, are as follows:
Buccaneer $27,820
The East Carolinian $34,639
WZMB $30,450
Rebel $14,436
Media Board
Executive Council 17,405
Photo Lab $11,346
The Buccaneer budget was ap-
proved without a printing line item,
approximately $38,000. After
assessing student demand this fall,
the board will approve enough
money to print the appropriate
number of 1980-81 yearbooks.
The Media Board took the first
positive step in protecting student
money from another year of waste.
By waiting to determine student de-
mand for the Buccaneer, the board
will accurately assess who wants a
The board set a deadline for the
1979-80 hooks to o distributed
and, unlike last year, only students
will be able to get one � a good idea
since students footed the bill. This
will give an accurate picture of how
many students want a yearbook.
Last year the Buccaneer staff
gave yearbooks to coaches, ex-
changed books with othei schools
and still had 1000 left. Considering
that distribution for the 1978-79
yearbook began nearly a year ago,
one can see the wasted student
Barrie Byland, editor of the Buc-
caneer, and Craig Sahli, former
editor, were uncompromising in
their discussions with the board.
They refused to voluntarily cut the
press run or to cut the number of
pages in the yearbook. They main-
tained that cutting either would
compromise quality.
Although quality is a matter of
subjective opinion, the unwill-
ingness to cut their budget will force
the board to make the cuts. Perhaps
that is the best answer.
The Media Board doesn't want
the extravagance of past Buccaneer
staffs, and students should be
thankful for its concern.

Reagan 1980 'Good Old Boy'
If the Carter campaign policy of por-
traying Reagan as an evil that could
destroy international security is a suc-
cess, Ronald Reagan might be the next
president of the United States. Reagan's
campaign will be based on the idea that a
"good old boy" will return us to the
days when we got an honest dollar for a
hard day's work.
This supply-side-based economy of
the conservative philosophy could be the
first wholesale swing to the right in
American history. That the Republican
platform of business-based concern and
international stability will be hazardous
to the United States has yet to be seen,
but some things are a little upsetting.
The most distressing aspect of the
platform is that there seems to be no
long-lasting solution to the energy pro-
blem. The Republicans claim that the
energy problem will be solved if we
simply remove all governmental
restraints from big oil companies. This
policy may have been great in 1920, but
will it work in today's complex scenario?
Reaganites hope to decontrol the price
of oil and gas; repeal the windfall profits
tax and install a plow-back provision;
phase out the tax on old oil; eliminate
the market restrictions on natural gas;
dismantle the Clean Air provisions;
repeal the 55-mph speed limit; and con-
vert to coal-burning as soon as possible.
If you think we got burned in the past
by the oil companies, just think about
what could happen with a Republican
administration. One can complain about
OPEC, but given the same choice, the
oil companies will show no mercy. Two-
hundred percent profit will be small
The anti-nuclear movement would
have plenty of fuel in a Republican ad-
ministration. The Reagan folks are
gung-ho for the nuclear industry, sup-
porting accelerated use of nuclear power
regardless of the cost to the environ-
ment. An unregulated nuclear industry
could surely bring us to the brink of
disaster, but conservatives feel that this
is the price we must pay for energy in-
dependence. The incidents at Three-Mile
Island and Brown's Ferry, the Fermi ac-
cident that nearly cost us Detroit, and
the Rocky Flats and Black Hills
rebellions will become daily occurrences.
As if it's not enough to have slow-
motion bombs in our backyards, the
Republicans would have a defense pro-
gram based on the nuclear warhead, the
most horrifying invention ever conceiv-
ed. They want the MX missile, the most
costly defense mechanism in history,
which will probably be obsolete by the
time of completion. They propose ac-
celerated development of a new manned,
strategic bomber, which would not be
able to penetrate Soviet defense systems
and would not stand a chance against an
unmanned missile.
Speaking of unmanned missiles, the
Republicans support continued develop-
ment of the Cruise missile to be
deployed from land, sea or air. The
Republican platform proposes vigorous
research and development of strategic
nuclear forces for the president to com-
mand. Reagan has come a long way
from the days of his six-shooter, but his
aides insist that he's not trigger happy.
The violence in Miami is evidence that
minorities and poor people are not very
happy now, but things will take a drastic
change if we get a conservative ad-
ministration. The Republicans want to
cut social services, abolish affirmative
action, cut public service jobs, and
decrease the food stamp program. They
oppose wage-price controls, most
unemployment benefits, and Medicaid.
The Republican convention has been
criticized for not including blacks, and
the platform states that the G.O.P.
"will not make idle promises to blacks
It seems as ;hough there will be no pro-
mises at all.
The Europeans may not like Carter,
but they are even more afraid of a
"movie star cowboy" and the effects
that his administration could have on
foreign policy. Reagan's hard line
against the Russians, rejection of
nuclear arms limitation, refusal to ac-
cept Palestinian goals, threats against
Iran, insistance that an oil embargo
would be a hostile act, hatred for left-
wing revolutionaries in Nicaragua and
El Salvador, and caution in affairs in
China arouse concern.
While many nations are attempting to
thrust off imperialist tcndancics, Reagan
seeks to "stabilize" conditions in
foreign countries. Pair this concept of
stabilization with the proliferation of
nuclear arms and it presents a frighten-
ing picture. Will this attempt to "Make
America Great Again" mean that we
will attempt to show our muscle in
potentially hazardous areas with
devastating consequences?
Reagan's election might be a good
thing; it will either be the salvation of
our nation or its disintegration. The sw-
ing to the right could bring about a left
wing backlash that would rival the tur-
moil of the sixties. There could be a
realization that the U.S. government has
as its priority an increased concentration
of wealth, instead of a sincere concern
for the welfare of the whole nation.
Carter Re-election Bid Slim
Now that the Republican Convention
has finalized the ticket of Ronald
Reagan and George Bush, the $64,000
question is: Does Jimmy Carter stand a
snowball's chance in Hell of being re-
The speakers addressing the conven-
tion on the opening night assailed
Carter's poor record. Gerald Ford
characterized the Carter administration
as one built on policies of weakness and
appeasement in foreign affairs and on
economic ignorance of the critical issues
of inflation and unemployment.
There can be no doubt in any
American's mind that Carter's presiden-
cy has been a ship adrift without a cap-
tain. In recent months, interest rates
have climbed to an astronomical 20 per-
cent, unemployment to over 8 percent,
and inflation to 18 percent. Our country
has never fallen on harder economic
times except during the Great Depres-
sion of the 1930's.
Carter surrounds himself with cabinet
members and aides who arc at best in-
ept. We have seen him fire most of his
cabinet members and reshuffle others.
Then Cyrus Vance resigned. Vance was
one of the few cabinet members held in
any esteem by the American public.
There is no doubt that Jimmy Carter
is a good man with a good heart and the
best of intentions. However, presidents
are elected to lead. Good intentions just
aren't enough to fill the bill. We must
have results.
Despite his shortcomings, we must
give Carter credit in the one area where
he does excell - partisan politics. Jim-
my and his "Georgia Mafia" are shrewd
and quick on the campaign trail. When
nitty comes to gritty, Jimmy can sway
the voters.
But he has his work cut out for this
time. His back is to the wall and he must
face voters who have seen their hard-
earned dollars shrink as never before.
What will he tell the millions of
Americans who have lost their jobs dur-
ing his tenure as the chief executive? It
will be interesting to hear Jimmy give the
reasons for voters to re-elect him. Being
a born-again Christian and a
Washington outsider won't work this
time around.
Not only does he face tough opposi-
tion from Reagan and Bush, but also the
division of the Democratic party. Teddy
Kennedy is the best thing going for the
Republicans right now. Conservative
Democrats are disgusted with Carter,
and the Kennedy liberals will most surely
go to Anderson. Who will vote for Jim-
Carter's administration has been bog-
ged down because of his lack of govern-
ment experience, his ignorance of how
Washington works, and his adversary
relationship with the congress, which is
dominated by his own party. Although
Ronald Reagan has been criticized as
having too little government experience
(he served two terms as governor of
California), one must remember that
prioi to 1976, Carter's only experience
tn government was one term as the
governor of Georgia, which is smaller
than North Carolina, and a term on the
Sumter County, Cieorgia School Board
in the early 1950's.
Carter's inability to muster legislative
support for his programs even among
fellow Democrats can be attributed to
his arrogant attitude of "do it my way,
all or nothing He has not learned to
compromise and develop a give-and-
take relationship with the House of
fc �� �� " '
.mMm � �� m �� -
?�?�����? ����?
Representatives and the Senate.
This inflexibility is a noticeable con-
trast when comparing Carter to Reagan.
Even though Reagan was a conservative
Republican governor in California, he
had savvy enough to sit down at the
bargaining table with the legislature's
Democratic leadership to iron out his
proposals � with notable success.
The darkest shadow over Carter's
chances is the erosion of his political
base, the South. Although the South has
been traditionally Democratic in its
politics, it is a bastion of conservatism.
The once solidly Democratic South went
solidly Republican in 1972 for Richard
In the eyes of many dyed-in-the-wool
southerners, Carter has turned his back
on his native Southland and the ideals
that have long been sacred here.
It is doubtful that Carter will carry the
South this year. There are some predic-
tions that he may be lucky to carry even
half of the South. There is speculation
that Reagan will almost certainly carry
Virginia, North Carolina, Louisiana,
Tennessee, Texas, and � incredible as it
may seem � Georgia. Carter is expected
to capture Alabama and Mississippi.
The rest is up for grabs.
With Reagan assured of taking the
West, the Midwest, half of the South,
and several large states in N w England,
things look dismal in the Carter camp.
Carter tried to be all thins to all people
and the American public has become
skeptical. He should have remembered
the classic words of his crony Bert
Lance, who testified before the Senate
ethics committee that: "From those

McCormick says hiring out to
deliver boats is a slow way to make a
living, though. "If you're around
boats enough, there's always
somebody who wants a boat moved
but it s the type of thing that only
happens once a year or so. It can

moving boats requires professional
experience, he says, he has had to

dealing with some of the headaches

Amateur movers spoil the
market, he intimates. "People will

want to go sailing. There's a pro-

not just a chance for someone to

For three years the pattern has
been, he says, that he gets a phone
call, somebody sends him some
money and he delivers the boat if
it s seaworthy.
There are many times when you
arrive at a boat and it's not ready
You call the owner up and say
Hey, this boat's not seaworthy
He says he hasn't had to call off
many trips, but if he gets on the
wrong boat, it would only have to
sink once to wipe out his dream.
"Jumping on a boat as crew or
moving one is like sticking your
thumb out on the highway: You
nave to make sacrifices. You're at
the whimsy of the owner, but you've

If the success of a
.iniversity course of
Jtudy is measured by
he ability of
graduating students to
iuccessfully apply it to
heir jobs, then the
ournalism program of
East Carolina Universi-
ty has done well.
A sizable number of
former ECU jour-
nalism students are
employed in the com-
munications field with
jobs ranging from
reporters to public rela-
tions practitioners.
Steve Tompkins, a
1974 graduate, is
writing for The Raleigh
Times, where he has
worked since October
1977. Tompkins wrote
for several other
newspapers before
joining the Times, in-
cluding The Kinston
Daily Free Press, The
Lewiston (Pa.) Sentinel
and The Fort Lauder-
dale (Fla.) Sun-
While at the
Lewiston Sentinel,
Tompkins won first
place in one of the
categories of the Penn-
sylvania Press Awards,
popularly known as the
Keystone Press
Awards. His winning
series was on the
decline of the local
school system. He plac-
ed second in a public
service reporting
category of the Florida
Press Award while
working for the Sun-
Sentinel. The award
was for a series of ar-
ticles on the influence
of the legal profession
in South Florida.
Tompkins worked as
a sports writer for the
Fountainhead (now
The East Carolinian) at
ECU, covering Tom
Quinn's basketball ex-
ploits and writing a col-
umn. Tompkins said
that Jack Morrow, the
sports editor, and he
used to "absolutely
barnburn mistakes by
the coaching staff and
that dear old hero of
yesteryear, Clarence
"In fact, Tompkins
said, "the most trouble
I ever got in was writing
a column defending
Quinn's coaching
abilities. We got more
flack from the student
body for that than
and commented that
journalism "is a way of
life for some people
but "for Mr Baker, a
dedicated journalist, it
is his life
"You may not find
anyone with a greater
love for the journalism
profession than he.
Under his leadership,
the journalism program
at ECU has expanded
greatly she said.
Ms. Broome said her
future plans include
writing for children and
teenagers and traveling.
Jim Elliot, a 1977
graduate, is at the
University of North
Carolina School of
Journalism in Chapel
Hill as a master of arts
student. Elliot was
working part time with
The News and Observer
in Raleigh for six mon-
ths before accepting a
research project at the
school of journalism.
The project examines
the news media in 16
"I found the jour-
nalism courses at ECU
to be excellent in terms
of teaching writing
skills he said.
Elliot will be working
for the United Press In-
ternational in the
Raleigh bureau this
summer and plans to
finish coursework for
his master's this spring.

communications career
with the Wilson Daily

very much involved

Gang Of Four: Political Rock
Maff Writer
With a crash and a boom, the new British inva-
sion is making its most voracious assault in the
form of a whole new breed of rockers that are
redefining what we know as "Rock and Roll
While the Clash and thr Jam have their founda-
tions pretty well rooted in traditional rock and
roll, these new groups such as the Raincoats,
Essential Logic, and Gang of Four are following
Johnny Lydon's delvings into more obscure
sounds. The Gang of Four have released their
first album, Entertainment, and it is being billed
as one of the finest albums released since the 1977
release of the punk classic, The Clash.
Entertainment is receiving tremendous critical
acclaim. It is currently riding atop the jazz and
pop poll of the Village Voice and last week was
the featured album in the Rolling Stone review.
Although 1 never thought it would be receiving
the exposure it is getting; I figured that it just
might be too outlandish for local tastes. In all
probability, you might have some difficulty even
obtaining the album, but try Apple records. If
they don't have it, well, you will just have to
order it. It will be well worth your wait.
The Gang of Four got their name from the four
top Communist officials purged from the party in
China's post-Mao upheaval. The group is com-
posed of guitarist Andy Gill, vocalist Jon King,
bassist Dave Allen, and drummer Hugo Bur-
nham. The combo was organized at the Universi-
ty of Leeds where Gill and King, then students,
ran the campus film society. The boys all met at
an anti-National Front (a fascist organization)
demonstration and have been blending rock and
revolution ever since. This is not music for the
apolitical or those who have an uneasy stomach.
This is definitely not mainstream music and if
there ever has been an antithesis to popular music
or even rock, this is certainly it. The main word to
describe the Gang of Four's music is dissonant
because of its polyrhythmic sound and fractured
melodic refrains. Entertainment, with its blatant-
ly Marxist overtones, is political music that makes
the Clash's most vehement protestations seem
like conservative meanderings. The violently po-
tent blend of supra avant-garde rock and wildly
futuristic political philosophies make Entertain-
ment and the Gang of Four the most refreshing
things to come along in a while.
This is music that will drive you to the dance
floor. Powerful is not the word for it. In fact, 1
have a hard time finding an adjective to describe
the intensity of the effort. Gill's Levene-like
guitar explodes, sputters and careens into ab-
breviated chord progressions set against the
booming, looming sound of Allen's frenetic bass.
King rants and snarls Marxist dogma and the en-
tire sound is propelled by Burnham's explorations
of funk, reggae and outdated disco. The result is
a sound like Public Image but with a much more
appealing and aesthetic approach.
Though the music may transcend the limita-
tions of rock, the lyrics make most "silly love
songs" and pop transgressions seem even more
like the lyrical masturbation than they really are.
"Guns before Butter" is a song that should be
heard by every nineteen-year-old on his way to
the post office. "At Home He's a Tourist" is a,
classic about urban tension. The entire album
confronts us with lyrics and liner notes that
challenge the very conceptions of the world we
possess and force us into self-realization. I can
only hope that Gang of Four will be a prominent
part of your intellectual accomplishments.
So, as you sit around getting fat, think of those
who would welcome your leftovers. Think also of
the Gang of Four, for they are thinking of you.
They are weaving your plight into a song that may
someday move you on the rock disco floor.
Phones And Foul-Ups
Continued from page 5
you wait for somebody to get back from lunch to
straighten out your bill. I had one three month
period that had mistakes on each phone bill. The
first was a call to Chapel Hill for 44C that 1 didn't
make. I didn't complain, since they missed a call
to Winterville or someplace. Next was a $4 call to
Indiana. Neither my roommate nor I had even
considered calling anyone in Indiana. 1 had it
deleted from my bill at the cost of only fifteen
minutes of telephoned muzak. The third month
had a fictitious call to Charlotte. (I'm from
Charlotte, but relatively few people there still
speak to me, so 1 don't make that many calls
there.) It was too bad that there wasn't a fourth
monthly mistake, because 1 was looking forward
to ripping out the telephone from the wall
Another fun thing is the folder that the phone
company gives you when you sign up for a phone.
It has advice like if your phone is out of order,
dial 756-such-and-such and report it. If the phone
isn't working, how do you dial anything?
Payphones are really fun here. Just try to drop
in four nickels before someone can say "Hello?
Hello and hang up on you. The only way to
cope is to put in a quarter, and the payphones are
pretty tightfisted when it comes to giving change.
Another funny thing about payphones � in
New York the last time I was there, it cost only
ten cents to call from a phonebooth, but our hotel
charged twenty cents for each call made from a
Calling celebrities is another thing people do
with telephones. A friend of mine once had a
bunch of movie stars' phone numbers, but the
closest we ever came to talking with a :tar was
getting a voice which said that Orson Welles
hadn't been there for years. Another guy got
drunk at a party and decided to call Brezhnev in
Moscow and cuss him out, but chickened out and
hung up on an overseas operator in New York.
Pranks are either a plus or a minus when it
comes to telephones, depending on whether you
are making them or receiving them. Although the
phonebook always tells you they are illegal, some
people derive up to 90 percent of their fun from
making prank calls. One of my personal favorites
is to pick out someone who doesn't deserve to
sleep and call his neighbor's room when you
know nobody's home. If the dorm resident isn't
around, this game can go on for a whole
A big problem with telephones is related to
people, not the phone itself. That is the aversion
people have to taking messages. Think how many
times you've heard, "Yeah, I'll tell him you call-
ed Think how many times you've called back
later and heard, "I didn't know you called
Then, there are those who won't leave a message,
but say they'll call back later. Then, you come
home and are told some girl called you about
something sometime ago.
Answering the phone is another problem. Since�
everyone knows that phones automatically ring
while you are in the shower, I won't even bother
to mention that, but they also ring at the last
scene of a good movie or during a classic Tom
and Jerry cartoon.
People don't always allow enough rings. 1 live
in a house with huge rooms that take about two
rings apiece to cross. Many callers hang up after
four rings, evidently envisioning some tiny dorm
room or something. Also, there are so many peo-
ple in my house that the odds are about fifteen to

one that the call is for somebody else, so that one
becomes reluctant to bother to get up and answer
Even worse is someone who answers and says
"He's not here" without checking. Imagine a
girlfriend or boyfriend or parents calling at 8:30
Saturday morning and being told you're not there
instead of a considerate lazy lie like you're asleep.
This type oversight can cause all kinds of com-
