A Greenville man has been charg-
ed with assault on a female and kid-
napping in connection with an mci-
I Monday night at about 11:15.
Gregory Williams has been charg-
ed in the case.
According to an officer with the
Greenville Police Department, an
ECU woman near the Sigma Phi
Epsilon fraternity house on East
Fifth Street was was approached by
a man who asked her a question.
The man grabbed her and covered
her mouth and, according to the
report, threatened her with physical
harm if she screamed. The report
said that the two struggled and that
during the struggle the girl scream-
The report further stated that two
members of the fraternity, Danny
Long and Robert Fletcher, heard
the scream and went to help.
The man let go of the woman and
left in an automobile.
A man fitting the description of
the assailant was picked up a few
minutes later by the Greenville
police department.

SAN JOSE, Calif. (UPI) A
malathion-laden helicopter sprayed
pesticide over a fashionable area of
40,000 homes with military preci-

aerial attack on the fast-spreading
infestation of the Mediterranean
fruit fly in the Santa Clara Valley.
Some residents left the area and
others locked themselves indoors
and covered their cars to keep paint

protesters stood in the drop zone
just south of Stanford University as
a Huey helicopter flew from a secret
base under tight security and drop-
ped 100 gallons of the diluted
chemical along a four-mile corrider.
The helicopter, whose flight was
cut short by a malfunctioning
pump, was guided by ground strobe
lights as it made six passes in the
opening salvo to control the fruit fly
in a populous 109-square-mile area.
The air strike began shortly after
1 a.m. PDT and covered less than
half of the 15 square miles targeted
before the attack was halted after 45
minutes of spraying. Spraying from
the air was ordered by the state by a
reluctant Gov. Edmund G. Brown

Oregon Inlet Jetties Rejected
James B. Hunt Jr. Tuesday criticiz-
ed the federal government's refusal
to build jetties to stabtize Oregon
Inlet, while a Duke University
marine geologist applauded the
government's decision.
"The Reagan administration

The Corps of Engineers has ear-
marked $119 million for the mile-
long jetties ' part of an $83 million
stabilization project known as the
Manteo-Shallowbag Bay Project.
Interior Department approval is
necessary because the jetties would
be anchored on land owned by the
Cape Hatteras National Seashore.
Interior Secretary James G. Watt
has rejected the project.
Watt, in a July 6 letter, told Hunt
that Interior Department attorneys
have determined it would be inad-
visable for the department to issue
the permits necessary for the jetties.
Watt said issuance of such permits
would result in lawsuits and years of
litigation with environmental
"This decision is a real blow by
the Reagan administration to the
people of northeastern North
Carolina, and I am greatly disap-
pointed by it Hunt said Tuesday.
"Congress has authorized this pro-
ject and appropriated over $13
million for construction. All en-
vironmental permits have been ap-
proved. This is a project which
would save lives, and would mean
the succ-ss of the vitally important

Hunt said he will ask Watt to
reconsider his decision. Hunt said
Watt's decision represents a change
from "his department's consistent
support of developing and enhanc-

to move ahead on this project with
the same dispatch he has shown in
so many other projects Hunt said.
Watt's decision was praised by

Pilkey said continued dredging of
Oregon Inlet should be studied as a
possible alternative to the jetties.
"Dredging is the most effective
way to keep the inlet open for
fishing and pleasure craft, while
maintaining the natural state of the

We're Back
Paper's Production Schedule
Finally Returns To Normal
Three weeks ago you may have
noticed The East Carolinian was cir-
culated a day late.
Two weeks ago the newspaper
failed to make it to the printer at all.
Last week, the observant eye
noticed that none of the type faces
were same as in the past.
This week we're back to our nor-
mal system of operation, thanks to
our friendly repairman.
The root of the problem was a
breakdown of our Compugraphic
"Trendsetter 812" typesetting
machine. Original examination by
their service agent indicated one
portion of the machine was respon-
sible for the malfunction, but
ultimately it was discovered to be
another part which failed.
The staff of The East Carolinian
apologizes to our faithful readers
who missed the paper or were in
some way inconvenienced by its
absence or tardiness. We did the
best we could under the cir-
The staff also expresses our ap-
preciation for our friends at The
Havelock Progress and The Daily
Southerner in Tarboro for their
cooperation and assistance in our
hour of need.
I he maladies The East Carolinian
has recently endured are reminiscent
of those suffered just a few years
ago by The Sews and Observer in
Raleigh when a tragic pressroom
fire drew emergency aid from com-
peting newspapers. Their staff
worked around the clock until pro-
duction could be established in their
own building.
Without seeming overly
gratuitous, it takes a high level of
dedication from a staff to travel the
distance to Havelock and Tarboro
to publish your weekly copy of The
East Carolinian.
So the next time you feel like
criticizing the quality of this
newspaper, remember: Would you
be willing to drive 140 miles and be
up until after 5 a.m. to see that it
gets printed as scheduled.?
All Star Clash
Missed By Few
The 'mid-summer classic
baseball's All Star Game, was
cancelled because of the players'
strike. So what?
The strike has drawn on for a
month now, but it is doubtful the
players could have projected such
mild public response.
Die-hard fans are, naturally,
outraged that their favorite sport
has been temporarily stripped from
their grasp. Many have found
refuge with college or minor league
baseball. But for others, it's just not
the same.
The owners' refusal Sunday to ac-
cept a resolve suggested by federal
mediator Ken Moffitt drew harsh
criticism from Marvin Miller, ex-
ecutive director of the Players'

Riots Show Political Expression
Summer's here and the time is right
For fighting in the street, boys
But what can poor boy do
Except sing for a rock and roll band
'Cause in sleepy London town
There's just no place for a street fighting
Mick Jagger and Keith Richards
Nearly fourteen years after The Rolling
Stones' "Street Fighting Man" first hit the
airwaves, the youth of Britain seems intent
on proving that there is indeed a place for
street fighting in "sleepy" London town
and the rest of Britain as well.
In the past 10 days, Britain has seen
what government and police officials are
calling the worst rioting in the country's
history. Rioting began in London on July 2
and has spread to Liverpool, Manchester
and other major cities.
The rioting, which British Home
Secretary William Whitelaw has described
as being of "extraordinary ferocity has
taken place primarily among Britain's
youth. Indeed, some of the rioters have
been as young as nine years old.
Britain's high unemployment rate has
been pointed to as the primary cause of the
riots. In Liverpool's Toxteth section,
where much of the violence has occurred,
as much as 40 percent of the people are
without jobs, and the problem is par-
ticularly severe among the young.
Rioters in Toxteth indicated that the
violence was directed against the establish-
ment, an explanation that sounds eriely
The establishment, in the form of Prime
Minister Margaret Thatcher's conservative
government, has responded by rejecting
social welfare programs for the inner
cities. Secretary Whitelaw claims that
worldwide experience shows that "buying
oneself out of such situations is impossi-
For her part, Thatcher responded with
the naive statement that "most of us did
not think these kind of things could hap-
pen in our country What Thatcher seems
to have failed to realize is that her pro-
grams are not working and that she has
pushed the British people to the brink.
In short, the people� at least the
young� are fed up. Even former Conser-
vative Prime Minister Edward Heath has
joined the critics of Thatcher's economic
policies, blaming her for breeding crime
and racial hatred through
"incomprehensible policies
Leaders of other nations no doubt fear
that similar riots will catch on elsewhere,
and for America the warning should be
The histories of Britain and the United
States have always been entertwined, and
in recent years economic and political
developments in Britain haveforeshadow-
ed those in the United States. First,
England went into a long economic decline
marked by high inflation and unemploy-
ment, a pattern evident in this country in
recent years. Two years ago Britain turned
to a conservative government that promis-
ed economic reform, and the United States
followed suit last year, giving conser-
vatives control of the White House and
Reagan's plans to revive the American
economy echoed many of Thatcher's: cut
taxes, give breaks to business and hope
that the measures taken would stimulate
the economy and reduce unemployment.
The plan has not worked in Britain, and
though the U.S. economy has improved in
the past several months, "Reaganomics"
can hardly take credit for the changes or
claim victory over the country's economic
The parallels here are too real to ignore,
and if the pattern continues, it seems in-
evitable that rioting will spread to
Unemployment among young blacks is
already hovering near 20 percent, and
frustration is increasing palpably.
The murders in Atlanta are a sign of this
frustration, as were last year's riots in
Miami. And, with the Administration's
budget cuts, destined to further deprive the
already deprived, frustration is bound to
Another common characteristic of the
Reagan and Thatcher governments is an
inscnsitivity to the plight of the
economically and socially deprived. Both
governments gear their programs toward
the monied interests, while walking all over
the less fortunate.
It is only a matter of time before these
people realize that their governments do
not have their best interests at heart. In
fact, young people in Britain seem to have
made this realization. And violence is their
only response. Sadly, they have been
driven so far that this is the only response
they are capable of. How long will it be
before frustration reaches such a level in
this country?
Certainly it is hard to justify rioting as a
means of political expression, but it is also
impossible to justify the insensitivity of the
British and American governments.

somewhat ignornat of his culture and
other foreign cultures. It is enjoyable to
read about the alleged differences
Mathenge says exist. But I am confused
by the rhetoric of his arguments.
Mathenge says, among other things,
that his column is "in the interest of im-
proving the lot of the internation stu-
dent, not to mention international rela-
tions He also expresses his amaze-
ment at the extent to which ignorance
and stereotyping have been cultivated in
the average American concerning
foreign cutures and that "trivial media
stereotyping" regulates our "social pre-
judices" and attitudes.
Obviously, some of the propositions
upon which the author bases his
arguments are noteworthy. For exam-
ple, many experts agree that the
awesome determiner of many American
attitudes seems to be television. The tube
is repor'ed to be the largest and most in-
fluential battleground for a politician to
capture. The intentions of the author
seem to be positive. He wants to
"improve international relations
although I do not seriously believe that
this one article will sway our government
into condoning non-apartheid policies.
Although his facts are scholarly they are
still debatable.
"Facts" that are not debatable in-
clude the author's characterizations of
the different people and nationalities. I
believe they are incorrect and inconsis-
tent with the basis of his argument. I
think he is wrong in assuming and
stating that "the majority of white peo-
ple" are receptive to Africans because
they are fresh out of the jungle. After
all, a person who has experienced dif-
ferent cultures is often more sociable
and interesting because of his worldly
knowledge. And I do not think that a
black American who is "disinterested in
the affairs of his Third World roots" is
"unwelcoming He is simply more con-
cerned with domestic affairs. How many
Anglos do you see hooting and hollering
over Margaret Thatcher's "thug" pro-
blem. Also, it is absurd to think that
American youth would actually jeer at
the foreign student who does not drive
to school. If the author is correct in
assuming that it is wrong for social pre-
judices and "trivial media stereotyping"
to determine attitudes then it is wrong to
"gather several differences" and
characterize a people. This seedy
characterization is not productive and
will not create stronger ties. This author
is simply adding to the social prejudices
and trivial media stereotyping that he so
vehemently opposes.
Sophomore, general college
resisted. She did, however, manage to
scream, and two members of the fraternity
ran out of the house to help her, frighten-
ing her assailant away. The man, later ap-
prehended by Greenville police, was charg-
ed with assault and attempted kidnapping
and awaits trial.
My point is this: instead of dropping
charges and trying to keep the matter
quiet, as has been the normal practice in
the past, this young woman has decided to
press charges. Her action in this case may
have several results. It may prevent other
such occurrances. Most certainly it will
cause other possible victims to exercise
caution before placing themselves in
potentially dangerous situations. And,
hopefully, it will encourage others to
report and prosecute such crimes on and
around campus.
By word of mouth, I have heard of rapes
and assaults which have occurred on this
and other campuses but were never
reported due to the woman's em harass-
ment andor discouragement from law of-
ficials. These victims not only do
themselves an injustice, but, by allowing
their assailant to remain at large, place
other women in danger of being attacked.
Law enforcement agents also, in trying to
hide the facts from the public and promote
a good image, serve as accomplices in the
perpetration of violent crimes against
It has been said, by men and women
alike, that most victims of crimes such as
rape deserved what they got� or got what
they deserved. No one deserves to be
raped, male or female. But women, due to
their physiological make-up, are much
more susceptible to physical attacks from
the opposite sex. Perhaps those who say
(and even believe) that rape is usually
deserved are trying to reassure themselves
that it could never happen to them or their
friends because they would never place
themselves in such a position to be "asking
for it But the fact is "it" can happen to
anyone. Must women lock themselves in or
travel in numbers after dark simply
because they are physically weaker than
According to a study done by Linda
Kraus, an East Carolina graduate student
in sociology, on sexual harassment of
female students by professors, eight per-
cent of the ECU students studied had been
victims of what Kraus deemed "severe sex-
ual harassment That is, they had been
openly propositioned or had sexual favors
demanded of them or had been physically
assaulted by a professor. In the two cases
of assault, no action was taken against the
faculty members, and they are,
presumably, still teaching here.
If these assaults, by supposed authority
figures on campus, are not reported and
puniswed, the rate of proscecution of non-
faculty assailants must be phenomonally
The young woman who reported and
pressed charges against the man who
assaulted her Monday night took
courageous action against the standing
norms in similar situations. I, for one,
commend her actions and hope that other
such victims will take her example and
report and proscecute such crimes. Such
action would benefit the female population

The 'New Wave'
A Rock And Roll Revival,
Or New Musical Direction
The mirrored ball high in the arched roof of the new
dance hall remembered its role, turning sedately to cast
speckled circles of light on the faces of the dancers. In-
deed the dancers themselves, some with shocking pink
hair, others in wide-shouldered leopard skin jump suits,
were two-stepping � but not in the fashion of the slick
kids who had danced in this very same club just a couple
of years before.
No, this wasn't happening in Greenville. It was the
scene at one of Atlanta's hottest new clubs, The
Limelight, shortly after the Christmas holidays last
year. These dancers were hopping rhythmically from
one foot to another � one, two, one, two � to a brand
new beat, a mixture of the hard fourfour of rock 'n'
roll and the slight syncopation of West Indian ska
music, pumped out by a British band called The
Specials, a beat that, coming through a few million
dollars worth of stereo equipment, made standing still a
waste of legs.
White shirts and shapeless jackets apparently be-
queathed by the death of a salesman; grey porkpie hats
tucked over haircuts so short the scalp gleamed through;
ordinary faces hidden partially by dark sunglasses �
this was the look of a gang that hung out in the lounge
for most of the evening.
Was there anything like this in the '60s? Sure, the
energy. Is there anything even remotely like this here in
Greenville? No, not really. Not yet, anyway.
The Atlanta crowd, like others all over the U.S
U.K and beyond, really lives the message carried in its
music: "It's better than pleasure and it nurts more than
pain Contort your body and adjust your soul" are the
'50s-style instructions to a dance song by James White
and The Blar
The energy of new wave is reminiscent of the
mid60s, when that first British rock invasion changed
the look and heart of a generation, and some fans con-
tend that the new music � which includes more styles
and sounds every moment � is just a revival of good
old rock n' roll.
Most of the new sounds have been filtering into this
area for about a year now, and on special occasions
some of the local "bars" allow the music of bands like
The Police, Dirty Looks, The Ramones, and even The
Clash into their carefully selected playlists: Here one
can listen to the pared-down musical arrangements, the
dissonant guitar, the sometimes annihilating beat, the
steady bass-line, the compressed-sounding vocals with
the rich edge trimmed off, the mingled wit and cool
despair of the lyrics.
So, even in an area where disco and beach music still
hang in the air as thick as the musk oil worn by many of
its followers, it is possible to hear music that is
undeniably the stuff of the '80s, for children of limited
expectations, for urban dwellers (suburban dwellers)
facing a future made strange by technology, the price of
housing, inflation, threats of war.
If punk rock was angry, new wave is cool � coolly
prepared to cope with modern life. And though it spins
moods for moderns, its values would sound reassuringly
familiar to those who circled the floor of the local dance
palace in the '30s and '40s: self-sufficiency, in-
dependence, integrity, I-will-do-it-myself.
Despite its sometimes alarming punk trappings, lime
green Spandex pants paired with clashing orange shirts,
new wave music is the farthest two-step away from
decadence, from disco, from the incessant music in-
dustry hype of the past few years. Its byword is not
dance, dance, dance but think, think, think.
It's almost as if new wavers have been reading How to
Prosper During the Coming Bad Years; having replaced
disco, new wave is the only pop music trend at the mo-
ment that is growing. The pioneer success in the U.S. of
groups such as Blondie, The Police and The Cars,
registered in lists of musical hits, was just a beginning.
Currently on the pop charts are groups like The Jam,
The Undertones, Pretenders, Buzzcocks, Madness, The
Specials, and on, and on.
Radio is suddenly with it; big-city FM stations are vy-
ing to be the first with the most new wave. Even AM
radio is beginning to see the light (once again, in the
larger cities): in some areas, groups like Talking Heads
and the B-52's are selling gold and platinum. According
to Billboard magazine the Toronto, Canada, market for
the B-52's is the largest in the world. Radio stations in
Toronto are now giving DEVO s arrangement of the
Stone's "Satisfaction" lots of AM airplay because it no
longer sounds as strange as it once did.
But far better than the scorekeeping data of the music
business, an industry well-known for confusing sales
statistics with standards, the spirit of new wave may be
read in the sound itself, the style of those who make it
and the attitude of those who come to listen.
Though persistently tagged "new wave" (to the

'S.O.B Earns Its Stripes; 'Stripes' Does Not
SUff V rtier
"To bare or not to bare"�That is the question asked
in Blake Edwards' new comedy "S.O.B currently
playing at the Plitt Theater in Greenville. The film is a
frantic, funny fable about a director who tries to turn
his flop of a family film into a sexy scorcher.
To attempt this transition, the director (played by
Richard Mulligan) must convice the pure-as-snow star
of the film, who is also his wife, to change her screen
imige from Pure to Porn. She is played by Julie An-
drews, who in this movie proves that Mary Poppins can
do more than fly.
"S.O.Bis a stabing incision into the ugly underbelly
of Hollywood. The Great American Wet Dream
Machine is dismantled and examined, revealing the
greed, lust for power, paranoia, egotism and insanity
that form its components. Edwards wrote the script as a
form of revenge. "I was putting my demons to rest he
was quoted in a recent issue of Newsweek. "My
criticism is with the system-the way people without
credentials impose creative judgments on people who do
have credentials
Edwards' ire is also aimed at the people behind the
system. Supposedly, some of the film's characters are
based on actual individuals. Everyone in his large cast.
which includes William Holden, Larry Hagman, Stuart
Margolin, Robert Vaughn, Robert Webber, Mansa
Berenson and Loretta Swit, plays some sort of slut,
scum, psycho or son-of-a-bitch.
Robert Preston particularly stands out as a cynical,
besotted observer of life among the low and mighty. He,
Holden and Webber, "The Three Muscatels provide
some of the movies best sequences, which involve a mid-
night funeral parlor robbery.
While Edwards' ideas are lofty, his humor is
lowbrow, including slapstick, sight gags, sex gags,
scatology, even desecration of the dead- in short,
something for everyone. Most of the film is funny, most
of it is on a fifth-grade level, some of it falls completely
flat. This level of humor is in common with most cur-
rent comedies. What sets "S.O.B apart is that it has
something to say mainly, that Hollywood is full of �.

High School Annuals
They Gather Dust, Preserve Memories
Ajttitaat Ve�i�r�t Editor
"Gosh, it's been real neat having you in my
Spanish class this year. Have a great summer and
have fun at college. Good luck always
The above quote may be familiar to many of
you. It was written about 12 times in my high
school annuals, and may have appeared (with
variations for those who never took Spanish) in
yours an equal number of times.
My own high school annuals are filed away in
my bookshelf at home with stacks of other books
that I haven't touched for years. It doesn't mat-
ter, really, since one of my roommates has an an-
nual from his high school, and it has all the same
stuff that was in mine.
Although the blank pages that become covered
with all the student signatures and soliloquies are
my favorite part of my old annuals, there are
some other amusing sections.
The first section usually has all the patriotic
school stuff in it. That includes the high school's
alma mater song, the fight song, the school seal,
a picture of the school's first principal and all
that other junk that nobody ever really looks at.
Although the students at my school were more
or less forced to get their pictures taken each
year, nobody dragged the teachers in. There
were usually several teachers who only appeared
in the "not pictured" caption.
It was fun to look in old school annuals to see
the pictures of my teachers when they were
younger. Some would look totally different after
lO or 15 years; others apparently never changed.
Bunches of group pictures, for sports and
school clubs followed. These pictures, in one's
own annual, can be interesting for finding pic-
tures of old friends; in other people's annuals.
those pictures are among the least interesting.
(What would be duller than a picture of a whole
crowd of strangers?
Usually, getting our little mug shots taken for
the book wasn't too much trouble. We just lined
up out in the hall, and filed into a storage room
that had been converted into a photography
studio. The photographers called the guys
"Buddy" or "Pal" and said cute things to the
girls to make them giggle for the pictures. It was,
at least, a way to get out of a dull class for a few
For my senior year, they decided that our class
had to dress up for the annual pictures. To make
things worse, we had to get our pictures taken

If The Peach
Was Here Now
I sat in my room late one night; there were no box
scores to gaze at, no batting averages or statistics to
study. Needless to say, I was depressed over the fact that
there probably wouldn't be any more baseball played
this summer. Grown men who can't even reach a simple
agreement have seen to that.
I gazed at the top of my dresser, seeing an old ball
that brought back fond memories when 1 had longed for
megabucks, large cars and fame: the game ball from my
old Junior Babe Ruth days when I once struck out 13
batters in a single contest.
1 reached and gently picked it up, putting my fingers
on the seems, ready to throw the ol'curve once again,
when I saw a face suddenly appearing� just like a
crystal ball! 1 soon ecognized who he was� my idol,
even though I never saw him play a single game� "The
Georgia Peach Ty Cobb.
Here I was, face to face with the most feared man of
his day. I remembered reading about a late-season game
in 1910 when Detroit was playing Philadelphia, and
Cobb was dashing toward third base. He hit the dirt, his
razor-sharp spikes high in the air. Suddenly, there was a
cry from Frank "Home Run" Baker, the Athletic's
third basemen. Baker held his arm, blood oozing from a
deep gash. Baseball's most feared man had struck
"I hear you got troubles, Boy he said, awakening
me from my trance.
"Yessir I stammered. "The players have gone on
strike, and the owners refuse to give in
"The owners shouldn't give in Cobb shot back.
"The salaries right now are outrageous, and besides, the
players don't care any more about the game, about win-
ning. All they care about is their paycheck, fancy cars
and houses, sharp clothes. Why, back in my day, we
played a game called baseball because we loved it. To-
day it's a business, a big business, not a sport
My memory took me back to a book I read about the
Peach. Few men in sports ever have been as widely
disliked as Cobb. Yet even his fiercest enemies had to
concede that he had two virtues: courage and amazing
The legendary sports writer, Grantland Rice, once
recalled: "Each of Cobb's legs was a mass of raw flesh.
He had a temperature of 103. The doctor ordered him to
bedJfofa'iWiee-daey test. That afternoon he got three hits
and stole three bases, sliding into second and third on
sore, battered flesh
How many players would do that today? I asked
myself. Not many. Some refuse to play if they have a
pulled muscle or a dislocated finger. Cobb would have.
He played 24 years in the majors and had a lifetime
average of .367. Twelve times he won the American
League batting title and three times he hit over .400. He
averaged 37 stolen bases a season, including a high of 96
in 1915. He would often walk, then steal his way around
the diamond. He would shout to the pitcher that he was
going to steal on the next pitch� and keep his promise.
Experts today would call that cockiness, but as Will
Rogers once said, "It ain 't bragging if you can do it
But why was he here, talking to me? Suddenly, it hit
me. Cobb caused the first mass player strike in baseball
history, back in 1912!
He hit .410 during that season, but the trouble began
when he stormed into the stands and attacked a heckler
who had been riding him mercilessly the entire game.
Cobb was suspended indefinitely by the league presi-
dent. The Tiger players refused to play without him.
"You're right" he said. "But remember, we had
something to strike over. I probably shouldn't have
gone into the stands, but we players are human, and we
can only take so much. We're in the public eye, so we
have to be careful. We had a right to strike, but today,
these players don't. They have everything. When the
average salary is almost as much as the president's,
that's ridiculous

At the completion of the Festival,
there will be 25 men and 25 women

Pirate HR 's Top Pack
Throughout this-North State Summer League season,
the Pirates of East Carolina have "longed" for that big
inning; the kind that destroys an opponent's rally. The
Bucs finally had that explosive inning Monday night,
and was it ever long� about 360 and 380 feet, respec-
tively. And it certainly paid off: the Pirates defeated the
Wolfpack of N.C. State, 11-5, to take sole possession of
second place.
The victory, before a crowd of over 500, boosted the
Pirates' record to 14-11 and gave the team itslast five
games. After losing the first two meetings to State, the
Pirates have now taken the last four out of five games
from their rivals.
For the first three inning, the Pirates were quiet, not
yet managing a hit. Starter Rick Ramey had already
been sent to the showers, and the Wolfpack was leading,
However, three innings later, the Pirates were alive.
Jay Carraway lashed a single down the third baseline,
advancing Pete Persico, who had walked. Mike Sorrell
followed with a double, scoring Carraway and Persico.
Todd Hendley then belted a two-strike pitch over the
leftfield fence for his third home run of the season.
The Pirates again erupted in the sixth when Jack
Curlings doubled to center, later scoring on Persico's
single. Charlie Smith walked, bring up Carraway, who
blasted another two-strike pitch over the leftfield fence,
driving in three runs, giving the Pirates an insurmoun-
table 11-4 lead.
State scored its final run in the sixth, but Parsons, in
relief, struck out two and walked one in four and a third
innings of work.
Curling and Carraway each collected three hits, the
latter driving in three runs. Sorrell and Hendley knock-
ed in two runs each, also.
The Pirates picked up another big win last Saturday
night by scoring two runs in the top half of the sixth to
hold off North Carolina, 5-4.
The game was tied, 3-3, going into the sixth, but Curl-
ings singled and went to second on Todd Evans'
sacrifice. Curlings later scored on Persico's single.
Pitcher Charlie Smith then singled, moving Persico to
third. Persico scored on Carraway's single, making it
5-3, East Carolina.
Carolina took a 3-0 lead early when Mitch McClenny
walked and moved to second on Ronnie Broom's single.
John Marshall's sacrifice advanced both runners. Pete
Kumiega singled, scoring McClenny and Broom. Todd
Wilkinson then singled to score Kumiega.
The Pirates cut the deficit to two runs on a solo shot
by Curlings in the second inning. In the third, Carraway
reached on an error and moved to second on Robert
Wells' walk. Sorrell then doubled home both runers.
Curlings was three-for-four for the Pirates, driving in
one run. Wells added two hits.
Last Friday night, in a setting little boys dream of
while playing ball in the backyard, Todd Evans belted a
two-out grand-slam in the bottom of the seventh inning
to give the Pirates an 8-4 win over league-leading Camp-
bell on a hot and humid night at harrington Field.
"Todd got all of it a pleased coach Gary Overton
said afterwards. "It was a rope
The Pirates took advantage of two straight bases-
loaded walks to put together the six-run seventh. Glenn
McConnel picked up the win in relief.
The Buc victory seemed deserving, as the Camels nip-
ped the Pirates at Buies Creek last week in nearly the
same situation.
In action last Thursday night, the Pirates split a
double-header with State, a 5-3 loss in the opener but an
8-2 win in the nightcap.
In the second game, Rick Ramey hurled a four-hitter,
backed by home runs by John Hallow and Robert
Wells, as the Bucs played nearly flawless baseball.
Note: The format for the league tournament, the first
in its history, has been announced by league president
Walter Rabb.
The tourney will be a four-team double-elimination
event at the site of the regular-season champion. Two
games will be played on July 23rd, 24th and 25th. If
necessary, a single game will be played on the 26th.
Starting times for the games will be 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Ticket price will be determined by the host team.
The last-place team will not qualify for the tourna-
ment. Any postponed game which has not been made up
by the end of the regular season and affects the final
standings will be played July 22nd.
Campbell is in first place, followed by East Carolina,
UNC-Wilmington and N.C. State. North Carolina is in
last place.
Strictland and Pollard of Campbell lead the league in
hitting, .485 and .414, respectively. Home of Ca. pbell
and Ramey of East Carolina have the best ERA, 1.80
and 2.45, respectively.
(Editor's Note: These are the sixth and seventh in a
series of articles covering East Carolina's 1981 football.
This week's report is on the Spiders of Richmond and
the Rajin' Cajuns of Southwestern Louisiana.)
In the capital of the Old Dominion state, Spider fans
are calling Head Football Coach Dal Shealy a miracle
And why not? All Shealy did was turn an 0-11 team
into a 5-6 team last year.
For all of these efforts, Shealy was amed the Big
Five Coach-of-the-Year" in Virginia. The Virginia "Big
Five" includes Richmond, VMI, William and Mary,
VP1 and the University of Virginia.
But what about the coming season? Can Shealy pro-
duce the Spiders first winning season since 1973, when
Richmond hit the national rankings?
There is not much doubt that he can, if a young of-
fense, with only five returning starters, develops the way
Shealy expects it to.
The Richmond offensive attack will be blessed with
the return of two highly touted performers in the
backfield. They are runningback Barry Redden and
quarterback Steve Krainock. Redden enters the season
as the Spiders all-time leading rusher after running for
1,151 yards and 10 touchdowns in 1980. He was named
the Virginia Offensive Player-of-thc-Year for his ef-
Meanwhile Krainock passed for 1,653 yards with a 52
percent accuracy. ,
Also returning to add depth to the running back posi-
tion are Reggie Evans and Stevie Catlett, who ranked se-
cond and third respectively behind Redden.
Evans ran for 408 yards, with a 4.5 yards per carry
average and Catlett added 1 yards, at a 4.1 clip.
The real problem areas for the Spiders are rebuilding
the offensive line and the receiving corps, which were
destroyed by graduation. There are only seven lettermen
for five spots on the offensive line.
Of these lettermen, the most dependable lineman ap-
pears to be tackle George Roberts. Thus far, however,
no other players have come forward to claim the other
In the receiving department, all four top pass
receivers have graduated, including Richmond's two
starting wide outs and their two most experienced tight
When you talk about the Spider defense, a smile has
to come to coach Shealy's face. This will be Rich-
mond's strong suit as 10 starters return to the fold for
Heading the list of returnees are Mark Seale and Jay
Brown. Seale, a 250 pound tackle, led the Spiders with
85 hits last season. Brown caused four fumbles last year
with his hard hitting style of play.
The other spots will be manned by defensive end Stan
Jones and tackle Mike Moran.
At the linebacker position John Burgess leads the way
with 68 tackles last year. Others that should contribute
are Jim Gay, Guy Green and Jimmy Lyles.
In the Spider secondary, senior Steve Gerdon returns
along with Mike London and Terry Waller. Both
juniors, Waller make 53 stops while London had 63,
despite an injury.
The Richmond schedule has always been tough and
this year will be no exception. The Spiders will open
with road games at N.C. State, Virginia Tech and
Arkansas State.
The Southland Conference Coach-of-the-Year in his
first season as head coach at USL, Sam Robertson will
have a tough time repeating the success that brought a
7-4 record to Rajin' Cajun land last year. The reason is
that the Cajuns have been hit hard by graduation,
especially on the defensive line.
Last year USL won all five of its home contests and
two on the road. One of those two wins came over East
Carolina in Ficklen Stadium, 27-21. All of these added
up to the Cajuns first winning record in three years.
On the USL offense Dwight Prudhomme returns to
the quarterbacking duties after an injury last season
limited his duty. He did manage to complete 13 of 24
passes despite a painful shoulder injury.
Curtis Calhoun is back at the tight end where he rank-
ed fifth in the Southland conference in receiving with an
average of 2.9 catches a game.
The backfield, which was so important to the Cajuns
last season, has been wiped out by graduation. Incom-
ing freshmen will have to take up the slack.
Last year's Cajuns were noted for their tough play on
the defensive side of the ball, but with 11 starters now
gone Robertson will have to play a lot of underclassmen
in the various spots.
The return of a healthy Andy Martin, who made All-
Southland Conference as a junior, will be a big help to
the young defensive line.
Last year the Cajuns ranked 35th in the nation in total
defense allowing 294 yards per game. That was good
enough for a first place finish in total defense in the con-
This coming year's schedule should be kind to
Southwestern Louisiana with the exception of a few
ECU and USL will bang beads this fan.

Army Comedy Doesn't Rank

sex comedy. If so, you've been told wrong.
"Stripes" is a popular film, because the pro-
ducers followed the Modern Movie Comedy
Sure-Fire Success Formula, which is:
�Hire any ex-Not Ready For Prime Time
� Choose a setting and situation ripe with in-
herent humorous possibilities (an army training
camp in this case).
� Get some writers, preferably Saturday Night
Live andor National Lampoon alumni, to
whip up a script.
� Find several young women with nice bodies
and big breasts who don't mind showing them
on screen.
� Mix the above ingredients together, hype well,
serve in cinemas across the country, and wait
for the cash to start rolling in.
Due to this plan we have such critically-
panne but mostly crowd-pleasing pictures as
"Caddyshack "First Family "1941
"Meatballs "The Blues Brothers "Where
the Buffalo Roam and of course "Animal
House the grandaddy of them all. "Animal
House" was different though. It had some style
and cinematic expertse, and, above all, was
original. "Stripes like most of it's breed, is
unoriginal, ineptly written and directed, not
very funny, and very exploitative.
The picture's plot concerns a low-life loser
(Murray) who cosiders the Army his last hope
for gaining some self-respect. Of course by the
film's end, he and his misfit buddies are na-
tional heroes, and honor they achieve by first
making a wrong turn into Communist
Czechoslovakia and then violently blasting
their way out again in a show of good oV
American guts and ingenuity.
Detente' is obviously not this picture's aim:

Heads' David Byrne who have been experimen-
ting with new musical forms for many years)
the new music does not submit easily to
classification. It takes influences from pop,
rock, reggae, jazz and disco, and it is brash
enough to borrow lessons from "serious"
sources such as the work of electronics com-
posers Philip Glass and Steve Reich, muddying
the distinction between "popular" music and
its time-honored superior art.
It is primitive and it is "post-modern Per-
formers play guitars as if they were just in-
vented but take synthesizers for granted. Their
stance combines the cool of the street-wise
tough with the nutty composure of the
minimalist artist.
For a new generation of city dwellers who
consider going to concerts a staple of life, new
wave is loud, simple, fun, cheap and as close as
the local bar.
The close contact between new wave per-
formers and fans has meant a trust in the in-
tegrity of the music that harks back to the days
of the Beatles. The trust has even inspired the
professional cynics, the rock music press. Rock
weeklies like Melody Maker are notorious for
keeping a taskmaster's eye cocked for evidence
of compromise, and rap knuckles with doc-
tinaire rulers when they sense a band is having
trouble keeping stardom at bay.
New wave artists have taken all the chances a
thorny commitment to a new way of making
music demands: risking obscurity, poverty,
Annuals Preserve

Getting all the way down there, waiting in
line and getting back home pretty well shredded
up my afternoon. After all that trouble, my pic-
ture still looked rotten.
1 was also in a large half-page picture. One of
the cheerleaders sat behing me in Spanish, and
a photographer snapped a picture of her for the
book. In addition to her, the picture caught the
back of by head and part of my shirt collar.
The comment sections of my annuals have a
fair number of autographs, short notes and
odds and ends written by old classmates of
mine. (Some of these notes approach novellette
size a few of those people got carried away at
the sight of blank pages in a year book.)
A few people preferred not to write on the
blank pages in the annuals, and they'd write all
over the page that had their class picture. That
way, 1 had some pages covered with blue ball-
point pen scribbles obliterating the original
photographs, I just hope there weren't too
many people I knew on those pages.
Besides the writings of friends, there are
plenty of signatures and odd notes written by
people who I've already forgotten. Luckily, I
wrote the last names of people who just signed
their first names. If 1 hadn't done that, there
would be half a dozen illegible scribbles signed
Mike, Bill or Susan that I'd never be able to
figure out now.
One friend of mine was an exchange student
from Norway. She wrote some stuff in
Norwegian in my senior annual. I forgot exact-
ly what it meant, but I think it was something
like "Gosh, it's been real neat having you in my
Spanish class this year
failure. Risking stardom is just the next big
challenge. But fans, critics and performers alike
trust that new wave will survive the pressures of
fortune and fame.
As they wander nightly into the grungy clubs
that are the temples of new wave, they are sure
that, in the words of David Byrne, "This ain't
no party this ain't no disco this ain't no
foolin' around
The Czechs are portrayed as being brutal and
quite stupid. Their entire military base is unable
to capture a handful of half-witted, raw
recruits, and they exhibit an enjoyment of
beating helpless prisoners.
Helping the ERA along is not this movie's
objective, either: all the women in the film are
brainless sex objects. The two female M.Ps
who fall for Murray and his pal Harold Ramis
are shown to be capable, efficient soldiers when
they want to be. However, they arc ready to
drop duty, discipline and their drawers at any
time. The rest of the women depicted have no
brains at ali, just boobs and bottoms which are
displayed in totally gratuitous scenes of mud-
wrestling and shower-peeping.
"Stripes" does have a few good moments,
about 10 of them to be exact: Murray's stirring
speech to his fumbling comrades-in-arms in
which he explains that all Americans are
misfits, losers and immigrants and should be
proud of it, and the immediately following
ceremonial march where he leads his men in
song and dance arms display.
This latter part, the song and dance drill, has
been prominently shown on TV in promotional
pieces. So why spend the time and money to go
see "Stripes" when you've already seen the best
part for free? This reviwer can't recommend it.
All 1 can say is see "Stripes" if you want to sit
through a couple of hours of crudely-done
slapstick, and gratuitous sex and violence,
which, judging from the success of this movie
and many more like it, is what people want to
