The Media Board met Monday
afternoon and approved the propos-
ed budget for The East Carolinian
in the 1981-82 school year. The
board also discussed the need for an
acting general manager of WZMB
radio station and the delays in the
Buccaneer's production.
The board approved the adjusted
budget for The East Carolinian with
the exception of the Rebel's request
for S200 for a banquet and an addi-
tional SI00 for a photographer. The
board also moved to continue
discussion on The East Carolinian's
Regular Student Wages request at a
later date.
The East Carolinian submitted an
adjusted proposed budget in which
an additional SI4.816.20 was cut.
The newspaper eliminated or
lowered the pav of eight statf posi-
tions in order to balance their
budget. The accepted budget re-
quires S40,013.80 in order to help
meet the required budget of
SI45,013.80. The SI05,000.00 dif-
ference will be met by total revenue
such as advertising.
With these adjustments, Paul
Breitman, financial adviser for the
Media Board, informed the board
that the budget is now balanced.
Barrie Byland, editor of this
year's Buccaneer, was asked to ex-
plain why the yearbook staff had
not been meeting their set deadlines
with the printer. The March 30
deadline was not met and as of this
date, 14 pages have been sent to the
printer. The final deadline is July 13
at w hich time 368 pages are expected
to be turned in for printing.
Byland told the board that the
staff's performance was her repon-
sibility as an editor but that many of
the problems dealt with a lack of
writers and trouble in getting the
writers to produce material. She
told the board that the deadlines
would be reset until July 13 and that
many of the sections had already
been researched but the articles had
not been written yet. The sports sec-

Items affected by the bill include

Many products not normally related
to drugs, such as plastic bags, also
would be illegal if authorities could

them for storing drugs.
Hackney's amendment would
have changed the penalty for posses-
sion of drug paraphernalia from a
maximum of $500 and one year in
prison to a $100 fine and 30 days in

Since the beginning of April,
when the program ended, Joyner
Library has suffered a severe shor-
tage in student help. According to
Dr. Eugene Brunelle, director of the
library, the decision was made to cut
student hours rather than fire stu-
dent help. Under this policy student
hours were cut from 15 to 20 hours
to 10 hours or less per week.
Even with this student help, the
library staff is still insufficient. The
regular library hours have been cut
to eliminate Saturday mornings,
when the library is rarely used. In
order to keep the buildings open as
long as possible, some sections, such
as periodicals, are being closed ear-
However, some sections, such as
circulation, must stay open Accor-
ding to Mrs. Dorothy Brockmann,
hardest hit by the loss of manpower.
In order to have the circulation
desk, the stacks, and the reserve
room operating at full efficiency,
they need about 20 students working
20 hours per week.
What they have, Mrs. Brockmann
said, is about 10 students working
10 hours per week. Circulation is
having problems keeping books
shelved, and they don't have time to
"read" the shelves, the necessary
method used to keep the books in
order. Also, the library was in the
process of changing from the Dewey
Decimal to the Library of Congress
cataloguing system, a project which
has had to be abandoned for the
time being.
The work-study program, which
was terminated in April, is 80 per-
cent federally funded and 20 percent
state funded. About 50 students
were cut 10 hours per week, totall-
ing 500 hours in manpower cuts.
The reason the library has been
able to employ any student help at
all is due to the funds provided by
the self-help program. This pro-
gram, unlike work study, is institu-
tionally financed, and is more flexi-
ble than work study.
cut. Dr. Brunelle said that one of
the setbacks was the suddenness of
the cut. Had departments known
ahead of time, they could have
divided their funds more evenly
throughout the semester.
The major reason given for the
termination of work study is what
Robert Boudreaux, director of stu-
dent financial aid, coined as over-
committment of funds. Each
semester, financial aid funds are
over-committed by as much as 35
percent, which allows for students
who drop out or fail to utilize all of
their financial aid.
In the last few years, however,
more and more students have re-
quired all of the funds atied to
them. Also, even though the finan-
cial aid budget has remained consis-
tent over the years, minimum wage
has increased, cutting tunds even
As to future student help in the
library, Dr. Brunelle said that the
outlook is not clear. The new

optimistic, but Dr. Brunelle stated:

Delinquent Payments Cause Problems
By Karen W endt
AukImi Nr� Mitor
The SGA loan system has
undergone changes in the past year
and is looking forward to making
more in the future. Unfortunately
one of the problems that they are
having difficulties solving is the one
of delinquent loan payments.
In February of 1980 a total of
$1,220 in loans was "charged off"
according to SGA treasurer Kirk
Little. By charging off the loans, the
loans were deemed uncollectable,
usually due to the student dropping
out or graduating. Though contact
was attempted through both the of-
fices of the SGA and those of the
to students, no questions asked, for
the amount of $25. This loan is ex-
pected to be paid back at the end of
a month with the addition of a one
dollar service charge. If the loan is
not repaid by the date due a ten per-
cent surcharge is added per year. A
total of $520 was charged off this
The surcharges are used to pay
for the costs of processing the loan
and for the letters sent out for delin-
quent loans. According to the Stu-
dent Fund Accounting Office a total
of $2,446.85 was added to the loan
fund which was made by the sur-
charges and the interest charged to
the students.

The SGA "confidential loan
system also charged off a total of
$700. With the system that was in
effect at that time, loans were made
available to students who were deal-
ing with a problem pregnancy to be
used to help pay for delivery costs or
an abortion. The borrower was ex-
pected to repay the loan at the end
of a six-month period with a five
dollar service charge added.
However the SGA confidential
loan is no longer in existence. In its
place the SGA Emergency Medical
Loan was developed by a panel of
advisors and officials, university
counselors, health service officials
and a representative from the cam-
pus ministry.
The new loans can be used for all
types of medical emergencies, as
long as the need is certified by the
Student Health Service. The loans
are still available for pregnancy-
related problems, but they also
cover such things as a new pair of
glasses or dental work on a broken
tooth. The loans are available for
any amount up to $150.
In another change in the system,
the SGA treasurer is no longer re-
quired to know the medical problem
in order to authorize the loan. When
the old system was in operation the
SGA recieved a barrage of criticism
for its policy of demanding that the
treasurer know the emergency, in
fear of a breach of confidentiality.
On the current application the
student is required to get a signature
from the Student Health Center cer-
tifying that the student does have a
medical problem. The completed
form is then brought to the SGA
treasurer and, provided the money
is available, he signs the form which
authorizes that the check be written.
The loan must be paid back at the
end of six months and a five dollar
service charge is made for the loan.
Problems still plague the loan
system, however. Though the SGA
yearly sets aside a certain amount to
be used for SGA loans and
Emergency Medical loans each year,
the SGA ran out of funds for the
SGA loan system in October of last
year. When a buildup of at least one
thousand dollars is again built up
the loans are again offered to the
students. But the loan payments
drift in and there is not any certainty
of when the loans will be available.
A private memorial service was
held on Sunday for the family and
friends of Dr. James Clay Young,
30, assistant professor in the
Department of Sociology and An-
thropology who died on May 18.
Young died as a result of com-
plications which occurred after a
swimming accident on May 10. Ac-
cording to reports Young and his
wife, Linda Garro, were swimming
in the surf near Palatka, Fla. when
heavy currents overcame them.
Surfers pulled them from the water
and helped to resuscitate Young who
had been underwater an estimated
ten minutes.
After the accident the couple was
taken to St. Augustine Hospital
where Ms. Garro was treated and
released. Young's condition was
listed as critical. He was later
transferred to Jacksonville Baptist
Medical Center where complications
set in as a result of the accident.
Young had been a member of the
ECU faculty since 1978. He taught
classes in Introduction to An-
thropology, Medical Anthropology
and Comparative Religion.
Young held degrees in An-
thropology from the University of
California-Riverside, and Califor-
nia State University. He specialized
in health care in developing areas,
Medical Anthropology, Cognitive
Anthropology and Latin America.
He had published one book,
"Medical Choice in a Mexican
Village" and collaborated on
"Instructor's Resource Book For
In 1981 Young organized and
chaired a symposium on the
Ethnography of Health Care deci-
sions at a meeting of the American
Anthropological Association. He
was a member of this organization
as well as the Society for Applied
Anthropology and the societv for
Medical Anthropology.
Young's doctoral thesis was titled
"Health Care In Pichataro: Medical
Decision Making in a Tarwsean
Town of Michoacan Mexico. Dur-
ing his education he was presented
numerous grants and Fellowships.
He is survived by his wife; his
parents, James and Elizabeth
Young of Long Beach, Calif and
two sisters, Elizabeth Young of
Long Beach and Patricia Beonde of
Palatka, Fla.

Media Budgets
Alternative Financing One Solution
Much to the relief of those involv-
ed with East Carolina's media,
budgets for the upcoming year have
finally been approved by the Media
Board. As it now stands, the board
has a surplus in excess of $5,000.
Achieving a balanced budget was
no easy task, however, and
necessitated budget cuts by all the
media. These ranged from The East
Carolinian's S14,000 worth of cuts
to The Ebony Herald's $130.
These cuts, no matter what the
size, hurt and will undoubtedly af-
fect the quality of next year's
publications and radio station, The
difficulty of achieving a balanced
budget, despite the increase in stu-
dent fees received by the Media
Board this year, spells trouble for
the coming years.
If balancing the budget was so
difficult this year, even with the fee
increase, what will happen next year
when there is no increase? As
everyone knows, money is tight all
around, and inflation is fast driving
up printing costs. Obviously the
Media Board cannot request a fee
increase every year; the buck has to
stop somewhere.
In solving these problems, the
board has two routes of action that
it can take; eliminating at least one
medium or finding an alternative
form of financing.
Eliminating media would certain-
ly be an unpopular move and should
be avoided if at all possible.
Therefore, most viable and practical
solution is an alternative form of
As things stand, The East Caroli-
nian is the only medium at ECU
that produces a significant amount
of revenue. Through advertising
receipts, the newspaper has been
able to produce about two-thirds of
the revenue necessary to support
itself this year.
Our purpose in pointing this out
is not to beat our own drum but
rather to point out that other media
can help ease the financial burden
by selling advertising.
This would apply primarily to
The Buccaneer and The Ebony
Herald. Neither of these publica-
tions now has plans to sell advertis-
ing during the coming year. Both

'Implements of Crime'
In a move of utter ridiculousness,
the state House saw fit to pass a bill
Monday that will outlaw the sale,
possession and use of paraphernalia
related to the use of marijuana. The
Senate had earlier passed a similar
version of the bill.
If the two chambers can iron out
the differences, the bill will go to
Gov. Jim Hunt, who has expressed
support for it.
So in a day and age when many
states are moving to decriminalize
marijuana, our state legislators, in
picture-perfect reactionary manner,
have seen fit to pass a bill that
would levy harsher penalties for the
possession of paraphernalia than
for the possession of the drug itself.
Such a move is typical of North
Carolina's often regressive politics.
It seems that word may not have
reached North Carolina that mari-
juana is not the root of all evil and
that it does not induce "reefer
One legislator called parapher-
nalia the "implements of crime
Another said that such a law would
provide a "big stick" to deter
children from drug use.
This reasoning does not jibe from
a logical point of view. Laws alone
do not deter action; they must be
backed up by popular sentiment.
So perhaps the ultimate irony of
the situation is that if the bill does
become law, it� like other attempts
to legislate morals� is likely to be a
dismal failure.
As a law the bill's main result
might be to foster a booming black
market for drug paraphernalia in
North Carolina.
Helms Forces Oppose Proposal
Jesse Helms likes to tell the folks back
home he's busy in Washington getting
government off their backs. That's the
senator's way of saying he's pushing for
government-blessed prayer in the schools,
an Uncle Sam standing between women
and their doctors, and similar federal af-
fronts to personal liberty.
But neither Helms nor his political
tailgaters are so busy that they can't find
time to supply aid and agitation to a cam-
paign aimed at the senator's likely oppo-
nent in the 1984 run for Helm's seat. This
effort is being waged by various scruffy
bands of naysayers in search of nothing so
much as a free lunch.
One such group calls itself the Commit-
tee Against the Gas Tax. Anyone devoted
to truth in packaging would label it Politi-
cians for Potholes, but never mind. Their
ostensible target is Governor Hunt's pro-
posal to save the state's highway system
from wrack and ruin by adding 3 cents to
the 9-cent tax on motor fuels.
Helms and his Raleigh sidekick, Tom
Ellis, see quite another opportunity. That's
the chance to pin a sticker reading "Hunt's
tax" on the plan to rescue the Highway
Fund from imminent bankruptcy. So
they've armed the Committee Against the
Gas Tax with at least $10,000 and the
Helms Congressional Club's own choice of
radio commercials on which to spend it.
Tar Heels know what's on tap. It's a
rerun of the hitem-low-and-often show
with which the Helms machine defeated
former Sen. Robert Morgan. Pols still
marvel over that political lynching, com-
mitted as it was by and for Helms, who
was quoted the other week by Time as hav-
ing said of himself in typical humble-pie
manner, "I'm a lousy politician and a ter-
rible speaker
The pro-pothole crowd's approach is
simplicity itself: juggle the figures, nudge
the facts and count on suckers to take the
bait. No one is supposed to recall that it
was the Republican administration that ad-
ded 10 to 15 cents a gallon to the price of
gasoline by decontrolling oil. No one is
supposed to remember that it was Helms,
other Republicans, and Boll Weevile
Democrats who approved a budget that
lops off much of the federal highway
Both the Committee Against the Gas
Tax and a like-minded group, Concerned
Citizens for No Tax Increase, argue that a
General Fund "surplus" can be used to
revive the Highway Fund. That's no
surplus at all. Instead, it's money already
designated for pay raises for teachers and
state employees, other operating costs, and
the cushionnecessary to meet the constitu-
tional requirement of a balanced budget.
Moreover, this credit balance in the
General Fund account already has beeen
endangered by the federal budget cut refer-
red to above. That's why the Legislature
has postponed the pay raises. The prospect
now is that the state may have to dip into it
to maintain minimum education and
health services that heretofore have
depended on federal support.
W. David Stedman, the millionaire cot-
ton mill boss from Asheboro who created
Concerned Citizens, distorts the issue even
further. His propaganda gives an exag-
gerated picture of taxes in North Carolina
by concentrating on this or that individual
levey and ignoring the fact that state taxes
finance manyjublic services that are paid
for in other states by local taxes.
The answer to this barrage of misleading
statistics is simple and straightforward. It
comes from the Tax Foundation, a
business and industrial research group bas-
ed in Washington. The foundation ranks
North Carolina's per capita state and local
tax burden among the five lowest in the na-
Stedman and his Stedman Corporation
have profitted handsomely from the good
roads, good schools and other services pro-
vided by the state. Products from his 12
textile and apparel plants are hauled to
market by trucks that no doubt contribute
their share of potholes and worn asphalt to
the highway system. Yet, he now opposes
paying his fair share to support those ser-
If the efforts of Stedman, Helms, and
company succeed, the highway system will
be destroyed by neglect. Perhaps Stedman
thinks that when the result becomes ap-
parent he and his profits will have departed
for some fat cat's tax shelter. Perhaps
Helms thinks that he, too, will be beyond
reach, with another six-year lease on his
Senate seat. If North Carolinians permit
this to occur, it is they who will be left to
pay the price of monetary avarice and
political greed.

Reagan Brings 'Meanness' To Law
"sorrv fell , cmmx. vm m me seu wm pipes, the ohix kxeptawe wa fnwwtttitA
If the 1970s, with its preoccupation with
self, was the Me Decade, the 1980s, follow-
ing the conservative obsession with revers-
ing the gains of the past 50 years for the
disenfranchised, may go down in history as
the Mean Decade. Both impulses�getting
yours, and keeping others from getting
theirs�are selfish. But while the
fashionable selfishness of the seventies
took the form of apolitical withdrawal, the
eighties are shaping up as a time to lash
With Ronald Reagan's punitive budget,
meanness is being written into law. The
natural world is to be cut and burned for
profit, food stamps denied to hungry peo-
ple, affirmative action stalled, public legal
services dismantled, funding for the arts
squashed, Social Security wounded,
perhaps fatally. Reagan's attack on Social
Security is a direct violation of his cam-
paign pledge to maintain the system as a
safety net for the elderly poor. That pro-
mise, it turns out, is worth about as much
as a 1981 dollar.
Why, even corporate executives claim
they are being squeezed by inflation. Ac-
cording to a survey by Ernst & Whinney, a
New York accounting firm, over half of a
group of executives with average yearly in-
comes of $88,000 complain that their stan-
dard of living is declining. Twenty-three
percent say they are tightening their belts
at home and on the job. You do wonder
how they get by.
In reality, the Reagan administration is a
government of the rich, by the rich and for
the rich, and has been so since day one,
when the mink coats and top hats crowded
Washington for the Inauguration. Not
since the mean-spirited Republican trium-
virate of Harding, Coolidge and Hoover
has privilege been so nakedly enshrined in
the White House.
No one who has truly followed Reagan's
career as governor of California and stump
speaker for General Electric should be sur-
prised at the swiftness and thoroughness
with which he has turned the ship of state
to the right. Post-election assurances by
myopic seers like James Reston of The
New York Times and The Washington
Post's David Broder that Reagan would
prove to be a moderate compromiser once
he reached Washington have been shown
to be transparently false. The president is
as he has long been: an ideologue of the far
In theory, conservatives such as Reagan
oppose high government spending and ex-
tensive government regulation. In practice,
as the early months of the Reagan ad-
ministration have demonstrated, conser-
vatives oppose only certain kinds of
government spending and regulation.
Military spending-let's not call it defense,
no one is attacking us-is at an all-time
high. Budget cutter David Stockman has
asked Congress for more money for his of-
fice. And lavish federal subsidies to
politically powerful interests such as the
tobacco industry continue to be granted.
Those who will suffer most from
Reagan's punitive policies are those with
the least to lose: the old, the poor, racial
minorities, women, working people.
Together, those groups constitute a ma-
Unlike the moneyed elite that runs Penn-
sylvania Avenue and Wall Street, however,
the less affluent haven't organized
themselves into an effective political force.
Until and unless they do, the humanitarian
features of American society will continue
to be attacked.
The consequences of scuttling social
programs and concentrating even more
power in the hands of the corporate giants
are predictable. They include higher infla-
tion sparked by cost-inefficient military
spending, a sharp rise in occupational ac-
cidents and -disease and the continued
growth of violent crime, much of it seem-
ingly senselessthe final acts of persons
with no hope, whose desperation can touch
even presidents and popes. If the ad-
ministrative responds by lashing out with
ever more punitive laws while ignorning
the underlying causes of crime, the situa-
tion can only get worse.
It's not much to look forward to, this
scenario. But such is the American future

Director John Boorman has realized a dream-not
something nist anyone can manage to do. Like many
others through history, Boorman was obsessed with the
ieeends of King Arthur. However, his obsession went a
step further; he dreamt of making the perfect movie to
bring the legend to life.
Whether or not he succeeded in making the perfect
Arthurian movie is a matter that may be debated, but,
in any case, the result of Boorman's dream is
"Excalibur now playing at Greenville's Plaza
"Excalibur" is the most recent screen adaptation of
the Arthurian legend, the screenplay a combination of
the talents of Boorman and Raspo Pallenburg.
Arthurian devotees ma) hope to find in "Excalibur"
a believable, realistic presentation of the legends. If this
is so, they ma well be disappointed. For all its beautiful
cinematography and excitement, "Fxcalibur" will pro-
bably leave Arthurian tans unsatisfied and awaiting the
arrival of the definitive Arthurian movie.
Probably no one could find fault with the physical ap-
pearance of "Excalibur It is enchanting, depicting the
world oi Arthur as a sort oi Celtic Never-Never Land, a
world realistic m appearance but where all sorts of
magical things can happen. Through silvery mists, in
awkward, pre-medieval castles, the story unfolds. In-
deed, the settings of "Excalibur" achieve a degree of ac-
curacy never before seen in Arthurian films.
The costumes, too, show that some consideration was
given to historical authenticity. This viewer, for one,
found it extremelv refreshing not to see the Arthurian
characters cavorting in outfits which would more pro-
perly belong in a presentation of "Richard 11
Certain members of the cast, composed largely oi
unknowns, bring "Excalibur" to life and make it,
despite its faults, a movie well worth seeing. The viewer
can expect new and sometimes innovative interpreta-
tions ot the legendarv figures. Nicol Williamson, the
film's single star turns Merlin into a disturbingly im-
patient and irritating fellow .
Despite most viewers' ideas of Merlin as a kindly old
man. this new lnterpretation-surprisingly-works rather
well. Arthur is portrayed by Nigel Terry, widely seen by
audiences more than ten years ago as the slovenly, dim-
witted Prince John in the Academy Award-winning
"The Lion in Winter
Terry's Arthur may well be picked to pieces by critics.
He lacks fire, power; it is hard to believe this Arthur
could unify Britain. Still, he has the gentleness and quiet
intelligence we have come to expect. Perhaps most
noteworthy of all the cast is Cherie Lunghi.
She brings glorious new life to Guinevere, making of
her a strong woman, beautiful and desirable, but not
fragile in the least. This Guinevere is sturdy and
capable; she is real. The rest of the cast, including two
Boorman family members, fail, for the most part, to br-
ing any sort of humanity to their characters. Even
Lancelot is bland.
Largely, all the ingredients for an excellent film are
present in "Excaliburand the film is, without doubt,
entertaining and fascinating to behold. Yet, excellence is
not achieved. Why?
One main reason is simply this-confusion. It seems as
if Boorman could not decide whether to make the film
realistic or fantastic, so he made it both, and in disturb-
ing combinations.
For instance, a medieval village is realisticly depicted
in one scene; some time later we are shown Arthur's cas-
tle at Camelot which, among other artifacts, boasts a
Round Table apparently made out of some material like
plexiglas and chrome. Also, for viewers unfamiliar with
Arthurian legends, some of the situations and
characters may lack adequate explanations.
For more critical viewers, real Arthurian devotees,
the lack of theme may seem unforgiveable. The civiliz-
ing influence of Arthur, except in the presence of his
futuristic Camelot, is almost entirely overlooked.
A few painfully obvious Arthur-Christ comparisons
are made, but beyond this, in his attempt to create the
perfect Arthurian movie, it seems that Boorman has, so
to speak, made a bunch of trees but overlooked the
forest. "Excalibur" is filled with thrills, wonder, and
beauty, but lacks real meaning. The Arthurian legend
becomes just an interesting story.
Is "Excalibur" worth seeing, then? The answer can
only be yes. Despite its failures, its successes-its stunn-
ing cinematography, characters, sets, excitement-make
it a film quite unlike any other.
"Excalibur John Boorman's dazzling screen adaptation of Malory's I.e Morte Darthur, will be playing an
extra week at Greenville's Plaza Cinema.

top-selling records on more than 950
stations around the world, for 11
years now. A televised version of the
show has been out for a year.
"Hollywood will always represent
dreams to people says Kasem in
explaining why his countdown for-

with colorful anecdotes about the
recording artist involved, is so suc-
cessful. "Our show is about positive
aspects of people's lives. We avoid

careful" in avoiding controversy
and "exploitation He'll "argue

Kasem believes the accent on the

"Our biggest fans are people in

It's checked out by his staff of
four writers, stationed in New York

Kasem is deeply aware of the
trials and tribulations of making it
in the music business. Starting as an
actor and sound effects man in the
studios oi his native Detroit, he
worked at several television and
radio stations before se'tlmg in San
Francisco in the early sixties.
One day the program director at
KEWB there told Kasem, who had
been using comedy and character
voice on his Top 40 show, to forget
the jokes and come up with
something different fast.
"I had no idea what I would do
Kasem recalls. "I saw a copy oi
Mho's Who in Pop Music lying in
the garbage can. It listed things like
the real names of artists and their
home towns. And at the start of the

overnight success, with Kasem using

He was correct. From the initial

stations - it is the top-rated show in
some markets, and thus commands
top advertising rates but it helps
clue program directors into new

All of which gives Kasem a rosy
view of the industry. "I don't hear

The argument raging over television violence and its harmful effects on
our society has escalated in recent months. Many people think that the
constant flow of violence on TV watched by so many people is making
ours a more violent society.
There is one thing that I think helps keep TV from affecting our lives as
much as it might: the fact that most people don't pay attention to the
shows they are watching.
Think about the number of times that you've come into a room where
someone was watching TV and couldn't tell you what program was on,
who was in it or anything that happened in it. (That will teach you to come
in after that show's started.)
It seems that many people use television simply as background noise. A
simple turn of a knob (and alot of frantic fiddling with the fine tuning and
the antenna) can really liven up a dull, quiet room. Or, it could also drown
out alot of racket (like from living in a dorm or some other outlandishly
noisy place.)
LcAKrirob f)eovr Coiicgc Trie Hw ia)aj
There are good things about the idea of looking on TV as a mere
background hum, instead of something to watch intently. For one thing,
people can get lots of reading done. Also, people can be spared some of
the sex and violence of TV, unless they read sexy, violent books.
The radio also can serve as a more-or-less unobtrusiv e background noise
for many people. I'm used to working in studios in the art building, which
can be unbelievably dead and quiet if one is working alone. Even the worst
songs on the radio are somewhat welcome then, since they provide a little
relief from the silence.
Despite the thousands of study handbooks that say that people must
have absolute quiet to study, most of us seem to work a little better with a
TV or radio going. (The same guidebooks say not to eat while studying,
and not to study without sitting up straight. 1 never paid any attention to
Having TV and radio to provide an electronic barrier of sound is one of
the great changes that this century's technology has brought about. Just
imagine living in, for example, the colonial days. People had to read and
study in silence, unless they could afford to hire people to stand around
making noise.

Bucs Ready For Summer League

Defense like this will play a big role in the Pirates' summer league season.
Sport Editor
With the possibility of a major
league player's strike, the die hard
baseball fan should not give up
hope. The North Carolina Summer
League should provide enough ex-
citement to keep fans coming to the
ballpark throughout the hot sum-
mer months.
And in the thick of this excite-
ment should be the Pirates of East
Carolina with Coach Gary Overton
at the helm. The Pirates were 18-11
last season, and Overton expects his
club to be a strong contender for the
upcoming one.
"Our defense should be the key
for a successful season Overton
noted. "It will be pretty strong, and
we also have good speed in the out-
In the middle of the Buc defense
could be catcher Jack Curlings, a
transfer from Guilford. "We ex-
pect power from Jack Overton
said. "His strong arm is his biggest
asset. He will gain experience in
handling pitchers this summer
which will help us next spring. He
will be a big help in handling the
voung pitchers.
The Bucs, Overton said, will be
very inexperienced on the mound.
The top three pitchers, Bill Wilder,
Bob Patterson and Kirk Parsons
won't be performing in the North
State League this summer.
Wilder and Patterson will be pit-
ching in the Valley League this sum-
mer, a league that boasts the best
players from the East Coast. Hitting
star John Hallow will also join his
teammates in this league for the up-
coming season.
Another Buc stalwart, shortstop
Kellv Robinette, will be playing in a
"little" different summer league
this summer � the Alaskan League.
This league, in which players are in-
vited to participate, has the best
players in the country. Such major
league stars as Dave Kingman, Fred-
dy Lynn and Bob Horner played
Even with the absence of these
stars, the Bucs have good hitters in
junior Todd Evans and rising
sophomore Todd Evans. Hendlev
hit a solid .300 for the Pirates this
past spring.
Kirk Parsons, 8-3 this past spring,
will be the main man on the mound
for the Pirates. Behind Parsons are
Robbie Harper (2-2) and Mike
Lloyd (2-0). Overman said he was
hoping former Greenville Rose pro-
duct Mike Williams will return to
the form that caused him to be o
Overman said that Charlie Smith,
a designated hitter last spring, will
also do some pitching for the Bucs.
"He did a great job for us last sum-
mer Overman said.
Other prospects on the mount are
walk-ons Glenn McConnel and An-
thony Willis.
The Pirates will have an ex-
perienced infield this summer.
Hendley will be at third, Mike Sor-
rel at second and Pete Persico will
play shortstop. All these players
received considerable playing time
during the spring.
Overman pointed to the outfield
as an important key for the Pirates.
Greenville native Mark Shank and
Wilson native Robert Wells make
up a speedy defensive combination.
The Pirate coach says that Wilm-
ington, 32-15 this past spring, and
always powerful North Carolina
will be the favorites in summer
league action. Wilmington returns
nearly every starter while Carolina
kept many of their stronger ones.
Pirates Ink Four Eastern Carolina Stars
Sports Kdltor
The Pirate coaching staff has
done a little home cookin' and land-
ed four area baseball stars that will
help the team in the outfield, on the
mound and in the infield, head
coach Hal Baird has announced.
The four players, all from eastern
North Carolina, are pitchers
Charles "Chubby" Butler of
Roanoke Rapids and Bobby David-
son of Fayetteville E.E. Smith, out-
fielder Craig Brown of Goldsboro
and infielder Johnnv Banks of
The Bucs, 28-15 in 1981, were look-
ing for more speed in the outfield
and strength on the mound. Depth
was also needed for the infield. The
Pirate coaches believe they have suc-
ceeded in all three of these areas.
Brown, who will also play foot-
ball for the Pirates, was a four-year
starter and two season all-star for
Mike Glover's Goldsboro High
team. Scouts say he possesses im-
pressive speed, a good arm and a
quick bat. "Brown is a very physical
player assistant coach Gary Over-
man said. "He will help us right
The 6-2, 185 pounder will pro-
bably go in the major league draft.
Butler is a sleeper, Overman said.
He led his team to the state playoffs
with his strong arm. "He throws
hard Overman pointed out. " We
got him very early. He will help us
when he smoothes out his techni-
Davidson, a highly-recruited 6-0,
175-pound hurler, is a "polished"
pitcher. "He has a very good
delivery and a good command of his
pitches Overman said. "He is a
very smoothe, mature pitcher. He
could pitch right away for us
Overman said the coaching staff
was pleased to have signed pitchers
of this calibre. The Pirate assistant
labeled the incoming freshman as a
"big catch
Banks was the first player the
Pirates signed. The 5-11,165-pounder
hits left and throws right. His hit-
ting caught the eye of the Pirate
staff. His lefthanded bat will be an
asset to the team next year, Over-
man said.

A Tale of Two Pirates
Hall, Carter Now Teach Others
Anbtaal Sport Mitor
Since the conception of college
athletics in the latter part of the 19th
century, the debate over the student-
athlete has raged on. Stories are told
time and time again of the athlete
that played sports for three or four
years and then had nothing to show
for the effort. Many athletes may
not have graduated or had hoped to
end up playing their sport in the
professional leagues.
Still there is another question to
be asked about college athletics: can
a college athlete work hard to
perfect his or her skills on the
athletic field and use their athletic
experience in everyday life as they
would their education?
This question can be answered by
the story of two former East
Carolina footbaJl players-Charlie
Carter and Gerald Hall
Hall and Carter had a lot in com-
mon when they started for Pat
Dye's Pirates during the latter part
of the 1970s. Both players were
eastern North Carolina products,
Hall coming to ECU from Edenton,
and Carter hailing from Fayet-
teville. Both athletes started in the
i Pirate secondary, and both excelled
at their respective positions, Hall at
free safety and Carter at corner-
Hall, who played for the Pirates
from 1975 until 1978, was con-
sidered one of the top defensive
backs in the country while playing
for ECU. For example, during his
senior year, Hail topped the number
two-ranked Pirate secondary in
tackles with 69. He also had four in-
terceptions, six knock downs, caus-
ed three fumbles and recovered
another. He also finished hes senior
year ranked Fifth in the country in
punt returns with a 13.3 yards per
return average. His average was 12
yards a game.
Carter also had a solid career at
East Carolina, starting from 1977
until 1979. During the 1978 football
season, Carter topped the Pirates in
interceptions with five, as will as
recording 43 tackles, four
r m u ii nmhr 11 causes a fumble against N.C. State. When Hall knockdowns and two fumble
team with 55 tackles.
But now that their football play-
ing days are over, how has playing
an intercollegiate sport affected
their lives?
Hall, who is a physical education
teacher for grades kindergarden
through five at Belvior Elementary
School, also felt that the fact he was
a former athlete helped grab his
young students ears.
"Because 1 used to play football,
the kids I teach look up to me and
feel like they know me better than
someone they had not heard of
beforeHall said. "A big part of
education is trying to get the child to
listen to the teacher and because the
children respected me for playing at
East Carolina 1 have had good com-
munication with them Hall said.
Carter has also had a chance to
use the experience he gained on the
playing field in everyday life.
Carter, who will soon graduate in
Special Education, is currently
working with handicapped and
special people at the Adult
Develmental Activity Program
Center in Greenville, also known as
the ADAP Center. He has also
found that lessons learned on the
playing Field have helped him with
his work.
"Playing football was a big help
to me because in order to be able to
participate I had to study and work
hard on the playing fieldCarter
said. "Football requires so much of
a person both physically and men-
tally that you learn to work hard no
matter what you end up doing.
"The hard work and patience I
learned at East Carolina has been a
big help to me while working with
people at the ADAP Center.
"Patience and hard work are two
very important considerations when
working in special education
Carter explained. "Playing sports
in school helped me to develop both
of these traits as well as teaching me
the value of hard work
Thus in these times of football
scandles and the doctoring of
academic records, two former
athletes have taken what they learn-
ed on the playing field and put it to
work in making life not only better Charlie Carter learned hard work and patience while playing rootbalt for
for themselves but also for the ones East Carolina. Carter uses those skills to help the mentally handicapped.
