Financial Aid Cuts To Take Effect In '83
" mentioned earlier that you
were lucky to have gone to East
una. I must also point out that
many of von are lucky to have none
allege now rather than next vear.
is because the federal govern-
ment, after a quarter-century com-
ment to higher education, is now
ically reducing thai commit-
ment. "�Allan . Ostar, president
oi the American Association oi
State Colleges and Universities,
-peaking at the ECU commence
men! activities on Max 8. 1982.
The once bottomless well oi stu-
dent financial aid is drying up �
thai much seems certain. a the
Reagan administration says the
ous federal grant and loan pro-
ims must be reduced as part ol its
plan to cut the cost of government.
W hat is uncertain is how deep
these cuts will be. when exact Is they
will occur and what the effect � tl
on the nation's students. I ' rsl
two questions can't be answered tor
ne tune, not until Washington
v. ices a budget, but the third
question is alread being argued
ser bs the politicians, school ad-
ministrators and educators. Some
say the proposed cuts will badly hurt
the students, others say they won't.
During the 1980-81 school year,
the last year for which figures are
asailable, ECU's approximately
13,000 students received SI3 million
dollars in financial aid from federal,
state, school, and other sources.
S 162,616,(XX) oi this money came
from tise major programs: the Pell
Grant( formerly known as the Basic
I ducationa! Opportunity Grant),
the Supplemental Educational Op-
portune Grant (SEOG), the Na-
tional Direct Student I oan (NDSl ),
the Guaranteed student l oan(GSL)
and the work-stud) program. The
amount spent pet program per stu-
dent is 1980-81 is shown below:

1 CU students can expect each of
the above resources to be slashed by
Washington, but how hard will it
hurt theni' Dr. timer Meyer, vice
chancellor for student life, says that
whatever the results, next semester's
students should not worry. The ma-
jor cuts will not take effect until
1983, he says, and even then the
most needy students will be taken
care of.
Another problem with financial
aid concerns Meyer: "If a very con-
servative financial aid package is
proposed by Congress and passed,
the amount of money will be
decreased. The exact amount of that
decrease is not known, but we have
been concerned with some of the
misleading information that has
been in the press
The information passed out by
the press and supported by the
government states that student
default on loans is epidemic,
therefore some government loans
should be stopped.
Meyer responds that these non-
payments are not as widespread as
reported and mostly occur at col-
leges in depressed areas. The
budget-cutters have exaggerated the
defaults, Meyer claims, and so
many schools will suffer for the pro-
blems of a few.
ECU has an excellent record of
collecting on loans, he says. An
assertion attested to by a recent
regional department of education
audit. "It's very disturbing to be
caught in a bind and be penalized by
the Reagan administration Meyer
He adds, "but for general student
financial aid, with the exception of
the GSL, most students in real need
should be taken care of this fall. If
they're not, see Mr. (Robert)
Boudreaux is the director of
financial aid at ECU. He also
believes that the truly needy
students will not be hurt.
'�Availability of funds to go to col-
lege is not going to dry up he says.
However, Boudreaux disagrees
with the Reagan administration's
reason for the reductions; that the
funds cost the country too much.
People who are given a chance to go
to college will get better-paying jobs
and move into a higher tax bracket,
he says. The students, "in their
lifetime will more than make up the
monev to the federal government
with the additional taxes they're go-
ing to pay
Boudreaux commends the groups
who are fighting to keep money
coming for edcucational purposes,
noting that the student government
assoication has done an especially
good job. He criticizes the federal
bureaucracy for the financial aid
"Every time there's indecision in
Washington it affects the students.
because it affects the financial aid
officers, and that affects the
students, and it's getting worse
every year
What does the government itself
say? On Mav 3, the secretary
education made the following state
ment: "It disturbs me greatly that
there is a perception that the
Department ol Education and the
Reagan administration art
somehow going to depnse hundreds
of thousands oi America's college
students of a higher education. This
is simply not true. We propose to
expend $4.3 billion to assist
American youth to attend colleges,
universities and other institutions of
higher learning next year.These are
not draconian cuts. They are a
substantial commitment to the
students of the nation. Indeed, the
number of students who would be
assisted by the Guaranteed Student
I oan program under the Reagan ad-
ministration proposals would in-
crease to 4,562,000�an increase ol
The American Council on Educa-
tion is one of the organizations at-
tempting to preserse financial aid
They made a rebuttal to Bell's com-
"Halt ol the Administration's
S4.3 billion it plans to spend for stu-
dent aid is for interest to banks, SI
billion specifically for special
allowances to lenders For other
besides duaranteed Student I oans,
the administration proposes a cut
from the current level of $3.5 billion
($5.5 billion including Social Securi-
ty educational benefits) to $1.4
billion bv fiscal sear 1984.
"As to Us commitment to the
students ol the nation, the
ministration has revealed its tru
tentions in tis projection ol further
cuts in Pell (.rants in Fiscal 1984,
and in its plan that 'student grants

Casablanca Restaurant Closed
For Violating Building Code
Wednesday night: F-or mans East
I arolina University students, the
term is synonymous ssith happs
hour ar the Casablanca. With the re-
cent permanent closing of the
Casablanca, however, the double
meaning has been lost.
The June 2 closing came after a
routine inspection oi the
restaurant's Morocco Room which
revealed seseral violations of North
Carolina's building code.
According to a statement from
the city manager, the Morocco
Room had only one visible exit sign,
exit passages which were blocked by
storage cabinets and a stage made
: �: � ammable material.
I he statement also sass that after
the siolations hase been corrected,
the room un be reopened.
1 eroy Cherry, the owner of the
estaurant nightclub, said that the
ness' sursisal depended heavily
on the profits from happy hours and
banquets that were held in the
room. He also said that the six
seeks and the $20,000 that would be
required to correct the violation
would deplete his small cash reserve
and force him into an economic hole
from which he could not crawl out.
Cherry complained about the
closing, saying thai the city acted
unfairly He said that the entire
building was built bs state approved
plans, that the cits supervised the
construction ol the building and
rhat the fire marshall personally in-
structed electricians while they in-
stalled exit signs that he later deter-
mined to be in violation of the
state's building code.
Cherry also said that seseral in-
spections had been conducted dur-
ing the last year which revealed no
He further criticized the city's
decision saying that he was given no
grace period or advance notifica-
"I went to architecture school
and hase thirty sears' experience in
the construction business, he said,
"T know that what ssas done svas
improper, inconsiderate and il-
I here are seseral cits officials,
however, ssho say that Cherry's
claims are simply not true. (The city-
has asked that none of its employees
be identified or quoted directly).
According to one city official, the
Casablance was originally built
from state approved plans. Cherry,
however, later modified the
restaurant's Moroccco Room by ad-
ding a stage, a dance floor and
storage cabinets. He then properly-
applied to the city council for a
nightclub license, but never gave the
required notification that the
building was ready for inspection.
Another city official, who flatly-
denied that the fire marshall had
personally instructed electricians,
said that no inspections of the
Morocco Room had occurred since
the last routine inspection a year
The same official said that a
registered letter, informing Cherry
of the situation was sent on Friday,
May 28, 1982 and was picked up the
following day by Cherry's son.
A third city official speculated
that Cherry's license was in danger
because of several unconfirmed
safety and health violations.
According to the official, Cherry
allegedly regularly admitted more
than 1,000 people into the room
while the posted legal limit was 406.
The same city employee said that the
health department had received
reports claiming that women were
using mens' restrooms and that

Students take advantage of the recent mild weather in Greenville as first ses-
sion exams rapidly approach.
many customers were urinating out-
side of the building.
Gary Faircloth, an ECU graduate
student and former Casablanca
employee confirmed the reports of
overcrowding and said that the
The Casablanca
place was regularly a madhouse.
Literally, there were wall-to-wall
people. You couldn't walk
ans where
The firmness of both Cherry and
the city in their respectise positions
indicates that there may be a legal
battle in the making. "Whatever the
outcome of the situation says
Cherry, "Casablance is closed and I
can't afford to open it up again
This fact is painfully true to the
restaurant's 80 ex-employees and
thousands oi ex-customers.
ECU Students Attend New York Rally
Sl�ff Wrilrr
What has been called the largest
protest demonstration in the United
States history occurred in New York
City on June 12, and among the
crowd were several East Carolina
The United Nations Second
Special Session Devoted to Disar-
mament was the focus for the event,
which drew 700,000 people from the
world-wide anti-nuclear, pro-peace
movement, including approximately
25 people from the East Carolina
Fantastic, terrific, great, tremen-
dous, unbelievable was the initial
comment of Glenn Maughan, one
of the local citizens asked for their
impressions of the rally after their
return to Greenville.
When asked for the reason behind
the demonstration and the large tur-
nout, he said, "They came because
they're concerned with the spread of
nuclear weapons.
Maughan explained that, "the
black leaders and some of the other
people commented on this fear and
hatred that rampant in the world,
that prejudice, along with fear and
hatred is responsible for the spread
of all these weapons
"We wanted to be recognized for
our beliefs, our opinions said
Leslie Rio "The main thing is a
nuclear freeze. We have more than
enough weapons to defend
ourselves. People there just wanted
to show how many people in the
country- there are who share our opi-
nion on a nuclear freeze
"It shows that the American peo-
ple have a different attitude on this
than the government offered
Theresa Dulski.
Several of those contacted noted
that the rally was very well-
organized and orderly, despite the
immense number and variety ol
"It was amazing how so many
people could work together and
behave in the manner that they
did said Jim Roberts. He men-
tioned that there was no arrest and
that the protestors left Central
Park, the center of the demonstra-
tion site, cleaner than when they
entered it. "It was very mild, there
was no animosity commented
Elaine War shaver. "Everybody was
there for a purpose Everyone felt
that their presence there was helping
to make a statement
"I thought the people were really
very serious about what they were
doing added Linda Grayson.
Many of those talked to upon
their return to East Carolina men-
Break-In Reported At Student Center
�islani NfM Kdilor
Mendenhall Student Center was
the site of an apparent break-in this
past weekend.
According to Detective Lt. Gene
McAbee of the university police, a
pinball machine and an electronic
video game were vandalized. He
also stated that a closet on the se-
cond floor was broken in, and a
flashlight, label machine and ink
pens were stolen. A change machine
was also damaged.
The thefts, which occured on
Sunday, were reported by student
center employee Betty Hardy.
McAbee said that the building
showed no signs of forced entry.
The method by which the thieves
entered the building was either by a
key or being locked in after the
building was closed.
Lieutenant McAbee said there
were no suspects.
In a unrelated incident, the
university police disclosed that a
maintenance employee was arrested
and charged with misdemeanor
breaking and entering.
Thomas Wayne Brown, 19, of
202 Circle Drive, was found in Cle-
ment Dorm by Sgt. Lawler. In his
possession were keys, apparently
stolen, which allowed him to enter
the locked dorm.
Other break-ins occurred this
weekend at Garrett Dorm. Rooms
204 and 214 were forceably entered
and money was stolen. A candy
machine in the dorm was also
broken into. There are no suspects
in either case.

Spivey's Corner Set To Holler
NER, N.C.(UPI) �
Long before pop
psychologists ad-
vocated the primal
scream as a tension
reliever. Southern
farmers were yelling as
a means of communica
t i o n .
Without telephones,
u was the only way one
could yelp for help in
the fields or scream a
neighborly "good mor-
ning But no one con-
sidered it an art form,
except Spivey's Corner
resident Ermon Good
In 1969, Goodwin
appeared on a Dunn
radio talk show with a
tape of a hollering
neighbor. Host John
G. Thomas jokingly
suggested a contest for
the best hollerer in
Spivey's Corner.
Goodwin took that
suggestion and started
the annual National
Hollering Contest. This
year's competition will
be held Saturda at
Midway High School.
Each summer, the
Spivey's Corner
population of 49 swells
to 12,000 during the
contest weekend. Con-
testants and spectators
come from all over the
nation. Goodwin says,
"last year, we saw
license plates from 21
states Goodwin says.
"We even had one car
from Hawaii. That
must be a long
Goodwin says he
knows of one man who
will fly to the contest
from Rochester, N.Y
who is driving from
Tucson, Arizona.
But the number of
people attending hardly
matches the media at-
tention. Goodwin says
Spivey's Corner has
been featured on "The
Tonight Show "Real
People "Big Blue
Marble" and "On The
Road with Charles
Kuralt . '
Most of the publicity
results from Goodwin's
serving as a virtual one-
man chamber of com-
merce. He serves as
president of the Na-
tional Hollering Con-
test Inc. and each year
has tried spin-off pro-
motions, such as bid-
ding for the 1985 Super
Bowl and offering
asylum to the deposed
Shah of Iran.
"We're working on a
couple of bigger things
that we will announce
after the hollering con-
test Goodwin says.
While motel
operators in nearby
Dunn say their business
booms on contest
weekend, Goodwin
says last year's contest
brought the Spivey's
Corner Fire Depart-
ment $8,000, "which
isn't much for the
amount of work that
goes into it
Other profits go to
organizations such as
the local Jaycees and
Lions that run conces-
sion booths.
The National
Hollerin' Contest will
culminate several other
activities. Friday, the
Dunn Area Chamber of
Commerce will host ex-
hibition clogging. Dur-
ing the day, other
events for the strong-
winded include whistl-
ing, conch shell and fox
horn blowing and the

4�d Justice For All?
It wouldn't take a political scien-
tist to come to the conclusion that
there's something wrong �
something terribly wrong � with
this nation's concept of the term
Denotatively, the word has
changed very little since its origin.
Yes, even today, "justice" is defin-
ed as impartiality; lawfulness;
what is rightly due
Therefore, if the dictionary
definition is still intact, the problem
with "justice" must somehow lie in
or with our interpretation of the
word. More specifically, the pro-
blem with "justice" in the United
States must lie in the misgivings of
our judges and our court system.
Any system of law and punish-
ment that allows and provides
criminals with more protection than
victims is troubled and unjust at
best. Any system of "justice" which
allows and encourages plea bargain-
ing � regardless of the gravity of a
crime � is a mere mockery of
The trouble is, this "any system"
isn't just any system; it is the system
of justice in our beloved country, in
America, the mother of freedom.
Something's terribly wrong.
On June 7, Patrick O'Neill, an
East Carolinian staff writer, was
sentenced to serve three months in
prison and pay a $400 fee for
"willfully, knowingly and unlawful-
ly blocking traffic O'Neill, as he
rot�;tjnp the
rii . . LI Sai�auui��ii nuups ai
Fort Bragg in Fayetteville. He
shares his sentence with three
students from UNC.
As to the question of right or
wrong, the four protestors were ob-
viously in violation of the law.
There's really no disagreement
there. The problem or error of
justice comes not from the law itself
but from the abusive enforcement
Sentencing a protestor, who, even
at worst, perpetrated a victimless
crime, to three months in prison is
harsh, unjust punishment. Granted,
three months isn't even a full
semester in college terms. Three
months is not a long
timeespecially to those of us in
front of the bars. It isn't a harsh
sentence until one considers the fre-
quent punishments given for some
other � much more serious �
Take the drunk driver, for exam-
ple. He or she stumbles to the car
after having a few too many.
Perhaps he hits and kills a small
child. The story is not as uncommon
as we may like to think.
Certainly, any sane judge would
sentence the convicted killer to a
stiff jail term. But sadly, this is not
always the case. The number of
drunk drivers let off with little other
than a slap on the wrist is stagger-
ing. In a short time, they're back on
the road. Meanwhile, advocates of
non-violent protest sit behind bars.
Just ask the dead child's parents
about justice in America.
Whether or not one agrees with
the liberal biases of O'Neill is of no
consequence here. By mere virtue of
his being an "activist he obvious-
ly has strong enemies and alliances.
But the principle at stake knows no
affiliation. The principle at stake is
rooted in no "cause no "march
no "protest
The principle, or purpose, of this
argument is that justice in the
United States has been perverted
practically beyond reproach.
Naturally, to take away the
court's rights of review and inter-
pretation would do damage to the
very heart of justice in America.
But, by the same token, any mean-
ingful democracy � which this na-
tion claims to have � must provide
for its citizens the freedom to trade
ideas, whether those ideas �e sup-
portive of government policy or
In theory, these two elements of
democracy can function side by
side. In fact, however, this has not
always been the case.
Certainly, Patrick O'Neill broke
the law. And it would be very easy
to condemn him for his willful
disobedience. Yet his conviction
and determination are deserving of
admiration. Whereas most of us
complain idly from our armchairs
about U.S. arms sales to militant
nations, O'Neill makes his com-
plaint known. And whereas we may
pity the starving children in foreign
lands or even in Greenville, he gives
of his time to help further the causes
of relief. And now, a gesture � an
illegal, yet harmless gesture � has
sent him to jail.
His punishment is not the worst
example of injustice � not by a
long shot. But sometimes it takes an
example close to home to make a
point sink in.
Yes, there's something wrong
with our system, our enforcement,
our very concept of justice
nowadays. Some terribly unfair ac-
tions have taken place in the name
of righteousness. Let us just hope
that in the future, the scales of
justice will not be tipped so far out
of proportion. Let us hope that
judges will someday act with
prudence in determining the gravity
of crimes and the punishment of
criminals. And let us hope that the
breech of justice so common in our
society today will one day be a thing
of the past.

Radio Station Policies Still Under Fire
In response to Edith Jeffrey's
editorial concerning the operation of
WZMB, I think the time has come to un-
cover the reasons our student radio sta-
tion has experienced the problems it has.
Ever since the toil of John Jeter secured
the station an FCC license, a constant
power struggle emerged between each
succeeding general manager. Initially,
Jeter sought total control
(understandably so because of the years
of work put in) followed by Glenda Kill-
ingsworth. Next came freshman Sam
Barwick, whose 4.0 GPA and radio ex-
perience in Guatamala swayed the
Media Board, and now finally
gentleman Warren Baker. For reasons
still unclear to me, and each general
manager has found it hisher duty to try
to appear as dominant and all-knowing
leader. Constructive criticism and sug-
gestions from DJs and others are not
welcome as Warren (in this case) has en-
visioned in his mind what our station
should play.
Ms. Jeffreys correctly described the
rotation system now in effect at WZMB
(i.e low, medium, heavy airplay) and
her objection due to the limitations it
puts on her jocks. Well, here her argu-
ment runs into problems. You see, there
has to be some type of format and selec-
tion process that keeps a constant blend
of currentpast rock'n'roll tracs. 1 do
agree, however, that the current system
is not working well. Let me elaborate on
my personal discontent of Mr. Baker's
programming techniques.
First of all, the present system does
not allow for any new releases (such as
the new live Stones album or Alan Par-
sons Project) to be aired any more often
than any other album in the heavy
airplay bin. Furthermore, current pro-
gramming does not provide any devia-
tion for a feature artist (in which one
particular musician's music is played
predominantly during a particular time
slot). Also, due to student outcry, jazz
Finally was cut out of regular programm-
ing. I suggest this cut go one step fur-
ther. Why not replace the jazz show
(which currently airs weekday nights
from 6 to 8) with the popular new wave
show (that now runs only on Thursdays
from 9 to 11). I believe a majority of the
students would prefer to hear The Clash
or The Squeeze rather than the Bob
Thomas Jazz Ensemble.
The last two gripes must include the
oldie catalogue system and music selec-
tion. My understanding of the catalogue
system lead to a belief it was to keep
songs from being played repeatedly and
to make a record of the cuts the station
does have. Anyone who has dealt with
the system knows how long it takes to
determine what hashasn't been played,
when it's been played for each song you
want to play on your show. And for
those DJs with three-hour shifts the pro-
cess can take some time. Why not make
a list and feed this list into a program
that could be run through the ECU com-
puter terminal? I'm sure a program
could be developed to relieve the jocks
from this cumbersome catalogue task.
Finally, the question of music taste
comes into the picture. Ms. Jeffreys was
totally out of line when she effectively
described Mr. Baker's music tastes as
"poor, if any" (at all). Ms. Jeffreys, if
you're a junior as you claim you are, I
can't believe you haven't encountered
people in college that haven't had dif-
ferent tastes in music, clothes, lifestyles
than you 1, personally do not question
Mr. Baker's musical taste, because I
don't care what it is. My only concern
lies in the musical taste of this university
and surrounding community. WZMB,
currently complicates this matter by pur-
chasing albums from unknown bands in-
stead of filling in popular artists (i.e
Dire Straits, The Who). Except for those
lucky enough to pick up WQDR in
Raleigh there is no true rock'n'roll, I
mean a station that will play a cut b
The Who, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Asia,
without Donna Summer or the
Carpenters in between. In my opinion,
those who want to hear rock'n'roll
should be able to depend on hearing it
whenever they switch on WZMB 91.3
FM. I feel this is the alternative we need
to provide for this area for there exists
other sould stations, but none with a
rock'n'roll format.
I do not understand Mr. Baker's bat-
tle with the Media Board for they want a
sout show (disco, of course) to keep the
blacks happy; probably a Chinese show
for the Chinese Americans and even
possibly a Latin American show for
those Mexican Americans. Can you see
my point, ECU? Our station should be
distinct, for there's no way we're going
to please everyone at this university.
While the growing pains continue, I
hope other constructive criticism such as
what you've just read will be aired so
Warren Baker can see what this universi-
ty wants. Meanwhile, tune in on
Wednesday nights from 8 to 11 p.m. for

WZMB Uncreative
In reference to Ms. Jeffreys' letter of
June 9, 1 would like to express my sup-
port of her contentions with regard to
the operation of WZMB.
Sectioning albums and songs on a
high, medium and low basis does not
strike me as a method in which a creative
radio program is produced. It is my opi-
nion that freedom of choice is sine qua
non to the development of a Billboard
Magazine free format; however, I will be
quite content to install a cassette deck in

David Maready
1982 Alumnus
O'Neill Inspiring
Patrick O'Neill � for those who are
familiar with this campus, this
newspaper, and Patrick himself, a cer-
tain image comes to mind. Even those
who disagree with his policies find it
hard not to admire him. Patrick has
been gone now for a little over a week �
yet an aura of peace, justice and undying
determination follow him closely
On March 27, 1982, Patrick went to
Fort Bragg, N.C to protest the U.S.
government policy on training El
Salvadoran troops. Along with three
other students from Chapel Hill,
because of their civil disobedience, they
were sentenced to 90 days in prison.
Ironically enough, just weeks before,
Patrick headed up a prison symposium
task force (sponsored by the Catholic
Diocese of Raleigh) to explore alter-
natives to our present prison system in
North Carolina (which is a complete
economic and social failure).
According to the letters Patrick has
written me, he is getting first-hand ex-
perience ot what our jails are like in
North Carolina. In Clinton, Patrick was
placed in a cell 20 feet by 32 feet with 15
to 20 other inmates. He was refused de-
cent linen, a toothbrush and toothpaste.
He was told the state couldn't afford
them. Immediately, Patrick and his
three friends began listing demands and
getting other inmates to sign petitions.
The four of them were moved to a
private cell. Then they were offered the
things they asked for. They refused
them, saying they were getting special
treatment. They demanded that the
other inmates be treated the same. Final-
ly, Patrick organized a picketed protest
outside the jail to be held June 20.
Within three days, Patrick and his
friends intimidated the warden enough
that they were transferred to Virginia.
There have been many people on this
campus who have always thought that
Patrick was a little crazy. Some thought
he was stupid to go to jail. And now
some probably think him to be insane to
make waves in prison. But to man he is
an inspiration.
Patrick has made us think of a lot of
things we don't like to think about �
things that are threatening to us �
hunger, nuclear war, peace, corrupt
politics. Patrick has devoted his life to
these things, but to sum it up, Patrick
has devoted himself to being a prophet
of peace and justice.
We can all learn from Patrick. His ac-
tions speak louder than words (and
many of us know how loud his words
are). The American process is beginning.
More and more people in this country
are beginning to realize that the Pen-
tagon is a symbol for death and that un-
til it is a symbol for peace there is going
to be much more incredible slaughter
and suffering, not to mention a possible
We are the first generation that has
ever conceived that we may be the last,
and I think that it will take many more
prophets like Patrick and his friends to
make enough people see the light. Call
him Christian; call him humanitarian;
call him prophet � whatever you call
him, he's a great man.

Mr. Weyler's humor seems to grow
tasteless with each semester. I would
hope the other side of his subjective
comedy could reflect the truly humorous
instead of a sacrilegious cheap shots
directed at a people who have suffered
not only at the hands of Nazi Germany
and Communist Russia but the PLO as
well. 1 would like to ask Mr. Weyler not
to foster anti-semetic feelings. Of
course, tactful and intellectual comic

House Subcommittee Approves
Tobacco Allotment Reform Bill
(UPI) � A House
Agriculture subcom-

force entities like

Carolina Power will

will earn $7,960 from

own land which got
allotments nearly 50
years ago when it was
farmed. Under the bill,
institutions would have
to sell allotments by
Dec. 1, 1983.
The changes apply
to only a small percen-
tage of the 74 percent
of allotment holders
who grow no tobacco.
The bill, which the
full House Agriculture
Committee will con-
sider Wednesday,
would force institutions
and non-farm corpora-
tions to sell allotments
but individuals who are
absentee owners could
continue to hold them
as long as the
allotments were tied to
Non-farmers would
be encouraged to sell,
however, because they
would be permitted for
the first time to sell

separately from land.
The changes were
prompted by a scare

tobacco program was
averted only by a
strong lobbying effor
and promises of
reforms. Opponents of
the progam object to
federal subsidizing of a
threat to health
The bill would set up
a tobacco fund to pay
for the price support
program which would
be financed by
assessments of two or
three pennies per
pound of tobacco.
There are about
190,000 flue-cured
tobacco allotments and
290,000 burley tobacco
allotments. The bill was
approved by seven sub-
committee members,

"There's no place like home
says Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz.
Another explorer of enchanted
lands, director Steven Spielberg,
knows that there's no place as
strange as home. While a twister
took Dorothy, house and all, to a
magical realm, Spielberg finds
magic inside his house, or rather the
hearth of his childhood. A child in
his room is a traveller through
worlds of wonder, adventure and
fear, as the filmmaker shows in his
two new movies, E. T. � The Extra

films are currently playing "at the

Stallone KOs Rocky In Third And Final Round
W rilen Bloc
PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. - Sylvester Stallone
remembers the last time he cried as a child. "1 was thir-
teen years old and my father gave me a whipping with a
razor strap he says. "I never cried again. Until I
wrapped up Rocky 111, and then 1 went home and
started crying like a baby. It was like my best friend had
died. Like I lost my therapist, mv sounding board, mv
Aladdin's lamp
But not before the genie had richly provided for his
master. Stallone lived in crackerbox apartments when
he scratched out the script for the original Rocky. Now
he luxuriates in a country French mansion with stately
velvet covered walls, taking in box-office returns for
Rocky III, which opened a few weeks ago in theatres
across the country. (It is currently in its thfrd week at the
Buccaneer Theatres here in Greenville.)
Stallone admits that he was a pretender to the affluent
world before the success of Rocky. "Even though I had
the money, I bought cheaply he says, settling into a
floral cocoon of a sofa that looks out over the lush lawn
to a swimming pool and gym fully equipped for bodv-
building. "Like I'd buy a 25-cent reproduction of a pic-
ture instead of the real thing
While an original bronze nude bv Rodin attests to
Stallone's growing sophistication in art appreciation,
his taste in wine reflects a residue of charming naivete!
"I used to drink Boone's Farm wine for 78 cents a
quart he says between sips from a crystal goblet.
"Now it's Mouton Cadet It isn't much of a step up-
ward, but his accent is correct.
The 35-year-old Stallone has refined not only his
worldly possessions but his physique as well. Instead of
the beefy 210-pounder we remember from Rocky II, he
is now a finely honed 162 pounds poured into tight
jeans, a blue silk shirt and cowboy boots. A golden box-
ing glove hangs from a chain around his neck.
"Everything I am and everything I have boils down to
Rocky Balboa he says. "I didn't create Rocky. Rockv
created me
Indeed, the personalities of Sylvester Stallone and
Rocky Balboa are so entwined, that after hours with the
actor it is difficult to pinpoint where life imitating art or
vice versa leaves off. The once-ina-lifetime coming
together of a man and material catapulted Stallone from
an obscure actor into a bona fide superstar, just like his
alter ego Rocky Balboa fought his way from a dingy-
gymnasium in Philadelphia to heavyweight champion of
the world.
The original Rocky in 1976 "simply was going the
distance Stallone says. Before the big fight against
� � � �

heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, Rocky says, "If
I'm still standing at the end of 15 rounds with my face
beaten to a pulp, I'm gonna know for the first time that
I'm not just another bum from the neighborhood
When it won the Oscar for best picture of the vear,
Stallone knew he had gone all the way, earning the same
little slice of immortality that Rockv was going for.
Stallone returned with Rocky II in 1979 � as director as
well as writer and acior. This time around the "Italian
Stallion as the boxer is nicknamed, learned that "it
wasn't just luck, he really is meant to be a fighter And
Stallone again found an adoring audience, validating
the character and portrayal of Rocky as more than just
a one-shot.
Rocky and Rocky II rank as 22 and 35 respectively on
Variety's list of all-time box-office champs. And now
comes Rocky III, in which Rocky defends his title
against the awesomely ferocious contender Clubber
When trainer Mickey, played by Burgess Meredith,
dies, there is only one man who can train Rocky to go
up against Lang � Apollo Creed. It is the relationship
between Apollo, portrayed for the third time by Carl
Weathers, and Rocky, two men who twice tried to beat
each others brains out, that is the heart of Rocky III
Three years have passed since we last saw Rocky, and
our hero has undergone a transformation. Disdaining
the flashy clothes and garish Trans-Am he bought after
his initial win over Apollo, Rocky now looks like one of
the Godfather's sons in his subdued pinstripe suits and
camel's hair coat.
He has an elegant home (Muhammad Ali graciously
allowed Stallone to use his estate for filming), and his
wife, silent, suffering Adrian (Talia Shire), has grown
from a shy, mousey clerk into a stunning woman. A
portrait of Rocky by artist LeRoy Nieman is the clin-
ching evidence of the boxer's status as a superstar in the
sports world.
Even Rocky's manner and voice have changed. He is
confident and he never mumbles. As Mickey says, "The
worst that can happen to a fighter has happened to you
You got civilized Mickey therefore tries to dissuade
Rocky from fighting Lang (played bv a man known as
"Mr. T).
In his last 10 fights, Rocky has had little competition.
There have been thoughts about retiring until he learns
that Mickey has been carrying him. Rocky knows that
he can't live with himself unless he faces Lang, who tru-
ly deserves a shot at the title. "Rocky is considered one
of the bravest men in the world Stallone explains,
"but all of a sudden he's afraid
And Stallone himself is feeling more than a little ap-
prehension. He knows it is time, as an actor, to hang up
the gloves tor good. The Rocky trilogy is complete. He
says absolutely that there will be no Rocky IV and that
"it is time to go it alone, without Rockv to fall back
It won't be easy. Between chapters in the Rocky
odyssey, Staiione made four other pictures � F.i.S. T,
Paradise Alley. Victory and Yighthawks For rhe most
part, he received generally good reviews. But the films
failed to connect with the film-goers.
"I think fans either resent or merely tolerate me in
other roles Stallone says. "It's beyond my control. As
for the critics, the jury is still out. I think they're
rightfully skeptical because I've gone back to the well
three times with Rocky. I've got nowhere to go in my
career but sideways
Stallone will have his little jokes. They provide a nice
touch o comic relief from the intensity that pervades
his conversation. And there is nothing that brings out
that intensity and downright passion more than the sub-
ject of boxing.
"I had to learn to fight an entirely new way for Rocky
III Stallone says. "In the movie, Apollo says, 'You
fight great, but I'm a great fighter And it's Apollo
who teaches me how to fight like a black man. I tried to
fight like Sugar Ray Leonard.
"If you could see the fight scenes in Rocky or Rockv
II alongside the scenes in Rocky III, you'd see the dif-
ference. In the earlier films Rocky is a ham-and-egger
like Ciubber Lang is now. He was wild and bullish. Now
he's a sophisticated fighting machine
Stallone not only has a grasp of the physical aspect of
fighting, he has developed a philosophy about the emo-
tional makeup of a boxer.
"A fighter has only one line of communication he
says. "If he's not boxing, he's nothing. So they always
come out for one more fight. Like Ali taking on (Larry)
Holmes. Some people think Ali shouldn't have fought

Mendenhall Student Center's Hendrix Theatre will
soon be the stomping ground for two of the most in-
famous maniacs of all time: Jack the Ripper and
Richard Pryor.
The Ripper runs wild through the 1979 science fiction
thriller Time After Time, to be shown tonight at 8 p.m.
Next Monday night, June 21, at 9 p.m the volatile Mr.
Pryor will reappear in his 1978 concert film Richard
Pryor Live in Concert. Admission to the films is free
with ECU ID and Activity Card or MSC membership.
Nicholas Meyer first became known for his best-
selling Sherlock Holmes novel The Seven-Per-Cent
Solution. Currently he's seeing the success of Star Trek:
The Wrath of Khan (reviewed in the July 9 edition of
The East Carolinian), which he directed. Between these
two art:stic efforts he made his directorial debut, in
which he mixed the above genres. The result was a Vic-
torian science fiction romance called Time After Time.
The unique premise of this film is that the turn-of-
the-century author H.G. Wells (Malcolm McDowell)
didn't just write about such sci-fi devices as his Time
Machine � he actually built them. Local lady killer
Jack the Ripper (David Warner) uses Wells' time travel
invention to escape from the police and into the 20th
century, where he's merely one madman among the
thousands living in modern-day San Francisco In true
Victorian heroic fashion, Wells chases after him en-
countering such modern marvels as Mary Steenbureen

pint-sized psychic (Zelda Rubins-

bizarre battle between science and
familial love on the one side, and
the poltergeists ("noisy ghosts") on
the other.
To Spielberg, the all-Amencan
family consists of father, mother,
little girl, pre-teen boy, older sibl-
ing, and � something else. The
poltergeist-plagued family is played
by Craig T. Nelson, Jobeth
Williams, Heather O'Rourke,
Oliver Robbins and Dominique
Dunne respectively.
In E. T. these same kinship roles
(minus the father) are filled by Dee
Wallace, Drew Barrymore, Henry
Thomas and Robert MacNaughton.
Their "something else" is a four
foot tall alien creature resembling a
frog from the waist up and a duck
from the waist down.
Accidently abandoned on Earth,
the extra-terrestrial critter is
adopted by young Elliot (Thomas)
who hides him at home
(middle-class suburbia again), safe
from the mysterious uniformed men
who are hunting for him. The lonely
boy and the homesick E.T. take a
liking to each other; indeed, bet-
ween the two there grows a psychic
bond so strong that Elliot feels
whatever the E.T. feels.
This mental bonding is the cause
of much amusement when Elliot
becomes drunk during school while
the alien is at home testing Coors;
but things take a tragic turn when
the E.T. becomes seriously ill as a
result of his new environment, and
the boy sickens also. These scenes
are quite touching, a tribute to
Melissa Mathison's script,
Spielberg's direction, and E.T.
creator Carlo Rambaldi's marvelous
manipulation of his million-dollar
The sadness is intercut with
suspense, as Elliot and his friends
race to keep the E.T. hidden, the
alien struggles to create a device to
"call home" with, and the stealthy,
omni-present government agents
close in for the kill. (Until the final
scenes of the movie, we never see the
faces of the agents or any other
adults except for Elliot's mother �
Spielberg cleverly films them from
below, giving us a kid's eye view of
the world.)
For all it's science fictional trapp-
ings, E. T. is not a fantasy film in the
usual sense. It's major fantasy
motifs are the wish-dreams of
children. With his parents recently
separated, siblings either too young
or old to really talk to, Elliot is like
millions of other lonely, troubled
kids. As some youngsters conjure
up imaginary playmates, Elliot fins
a friend in a frog-faced space
voyager with a telescoping neck.
Other childhood fancies are realiz-
ed: the desire for power, the wish to
outwit the adult world. These
dreams become reality in the in-
spired scene of boys on bicycles,
silhouetted against the sun, as they
fly through the sky (uplifted by the
alien's special abilities) to elude the
massed forces of the U.S. govern-
Despite the common theme of an
everyday family having a close en-
counter with the unknown, there are
more differences than similarities
between Poltergeist and E.T The
former is horrifying, often
revolting. The latter is in turn
humorous, exciting, charming, and
sad to the point of schmaltz. The
first film is fixed in the traditional
horror movie mold, while the other
is quite unique. Poltergeist tries
hard to establish credibility by ex-
tensively discussing the latest parap-
sychologic theories, but then blows
it all by bringing in gigantic gob-
bledegook monsters. It becomes
merely another optical effects
showcase, while E.T. eschews
showy effects for the most part, in-
stead focusing on children's faces
and emotions. There is no attempt
made to explain anything in E.T
yet the often incredible goings-on
seem somehow real.
Thank Oz for granting Steven
Spielberg the gift of recreating his
youthful imaginings. E. T. will pro-
bably be this summer's best film, a
strong contender for Best Picture
honors at the next Academy
Awards, and become a landmark in
the mystic kingdom of science fic-
tionfantasy cinema. Films of this
genre are usually overly cerebral
(2001: A Space Odyssey), outer
space shootem-ups Star Hdrs
series), or shockers (Alien). E.T. �
The Extra-Terrestrial is one of the
few that can be considered movie
entertainment in its purest form.

A Recruiter With A Touch Of Class
Never has the placement of five
names on dotted lines created such
enthusiasm for a women's sport at
East Carolina.
But Lady Pirate coach Cathy An-
druzzi can quickly explain why.
"We feel we've got the best all-
around athletes ever brought into
the program she says, announcing
five recruits who will join the team
next season.
All have impressive high school
credentials and are needed to com-
pliment the six returning players
from last year's NCAA tournament-
participating squad that finished the
year with a 17-10 record despite hav-
ing only eight players.
Topping the list is Associated
Press player of the year Bridget
Jenkins, who chose East Carolina
over powerful Old Dominion, after
leading her South West Edgecombe
team to consecutive 3-A titles and
undefeated seasons. The 5-7 point
guard was also chosen as a Converse
Jenkins' teammate on the all-state
group is Wake Forest-Rolesville's
Lisa Squirewell, who averaged 24
points per game and over 13 re-
bounds last season. But she also
shot 60 percent from the field while
being selected as the Raleigh Sports
Club's county player of the year.
Another Converse All- America
Sylvia Bragg of Jefferson-
Huguenot-Wythe High School in
Richmond joins
helped her team
the group. She
to back-to-back
regional titles and a two-year record
of 42-1.
Six-foot center Rita Simmons
averaged 22.6 points and 18 re-
bounds a game for Miami (Florida)
Central High School and was twice
selected as the All-Inner City Player
of the Year.
West Craven's Eunice Hargett
not only averaged 11.4 points, 13.2
rebounds and nearly five assists per
game, but she also excelled in the
classroom � she has a 3.9 average
out of a possible 4.0.
It would have been impossible for
such first-rate athletes to play
women's basketball at East
Carolina five or six years ago. But
since Andrui arrived in Greenville
four years ago, she has consistently
upgraded the program's schedule
and popularity. And not to mention
the attendance � which was over
1200 per contest last season � easily
outdrawing the men.
But most importantly � and
most vividly � she has shown that
women's athletics do not and should
not take a back seat to men's pro-
grams. No sir. this is the 1980s.
The incoming group o freshman
whom Andruzzi has signed, as she
said, is probably the best athletes
Andruzzi coaches the Lady Pirates during the 1981-82 season.
join next year's six returning players.
Andruzzi has just signed five top recruits to
she has signed. "Talent-wise she
adds, quickly.
But she knows that you can't live
on talent and talent alone. As to
whether the group will contribute
right away or not, "it's going to de-
pend on how well they develop
she says. "But we think they all can
contribute. All of them had a great
impact on their team in high school.
They are freshmen, though, and we
will have to give them time
More and more of the state's best
players are opting to stay in North
Carolina due to the increasing com-
petitiveness of women's basketball
programs. Jenkins, for example,
chose East Carolina over tradition-
rich Old Dominion, where she could
have played with her sister, a prize
recruit herself last season.
"She just wanted to be close to
home Andruzzi said. "She likes
East Carolina academically. And
she's our type of ballplayer
Andruzzi has turned recruiting in-
to an artful science. "This year
she says, "we contacted 87 kids, and
I'd say we kept 50 of them up until
the end of the (recruiting) season.
"We have a list of potential
recruits right now. I go to basketball
camps and scout, and we also con-
tact players' coaches and guidance
counselors to find out how they
stand academically. As for this year,
we're allowed to go to their homes.
That'll make a difference
Some coaches compare a player
signing a grant-in-aid to that of a
job. Andruzzi agrees. "Just like a
professional athlete she says.
"We want them to fulfill their end
of the agreement the best they can
But she also knows that discipline
plays a big part in a successful
athletic program. "We expect our
recruits to make it. We don't
tolerate no-nonsense. There must be
a mutual respect there. They can be
a future for them in our program,
3nd we can be a future in their life
She also knows about getting
players to adapt to a team concept.
"You can make the players suit
your needs. Take Loletha Harrison
(senior transfer from Louisburg) for
example. She's only 5-8, but she
played the inside. If a kid is willing
to work and if she has the talent, she
will fill our needs
Last season's team played under a
great deal of adversity; the squad
ended up with only eight players �
out of 12 � because some did not
agree with Andruzzi's training
And yes, the incoming recruits
Cathy Andruzzi
knew about that. "They surely that the popularity ol her program

Sam Jones never imagined she

Overton. Overton believes the
Pirates are progressing toward those
objectives thus far this season.
There are other bright spots in
light of the dismal record. "Our

especially with the return of Pete

ECU had only two pitchers with
limited experience when the summer

was shown in the early games but

good pitching said Overton.

far was the 11-1 win over Carolina,
according to Overton. "With a few

lineup in two games yet, mainly due
to injuries said Overton.

Craig Stadler was
relaxing last week, do-
ing nothing more
stenuous than flying to
Las Vegas to see the
Halmes-Cooney fight.
This was Stadler's way
of preparing for the
biggest tournament of
the year, the United
States Open, which
begins Thursday at the
Pebble Beach Golf
Links on the Monterey
Peninsula of Califor-
Forget the jokes
about the rotund golfer
they call The Walrus.
Forget the snickers
about his temper and
about the way he wears
his clothes. Now that
Craig Stadler is playing
the best golf of his
lifetime, the cliches
have passed their ex-
piration date.
Stadler is the only
player who has won
three tournaments this
year and, with the
season ony half finish-
ed, he already has won
$312,058 to lead the
money list. Stadler has
long since won the
respect of his peers on
the tour.
Stadler started the
season by winning the
Tuscon Open. In April
he won the Masters, the
first Grand Slam event
on the calendar. After
winning the Kemper
Open on June 6 at
Bethesda, Md Stadler
said he had given little
thought to the United
States Open during that
tournament. But now
that he has won his
third tournament of the
season and sixth of his
career, Stadler looks
forward to the Open
with much more con-
fidence than he had
before the Kemper.
In his college days at
Southern California
and around the time he
won the United States
Amateur championship
in 1973, even Stadler
would make jokes
about his wild driv-
ing.No more. He hits
the ball long off the tee,
about 270 yards, and
just about where he
likes it, on the right side
of the fairway.
Sometimes he hits it in
the 36-inch "first cut"
of light rough beside
the fairway, usually an
inch to an inch and a
half high, but certainly
in play.
"I'd say I drive the
ball out of bounds now
maybe twice a year
he estimates.
Stadler is completely
prepared to meet the
test of Pebble Beach,
one of the finest golf
courses in the country
and one that demands
brains as well as
physical talent. For one
thing, he has at last ac-
quired consistency. In
1981 he had two "bad
stretches" of about
four weeks each, and
altogether he missed
nine 36-hole cuts. This
season Stadler has
made the cut in 15 of 16
"I can't pinpoint the

JUNE 16. 1982
TV Vital
(UP1) � An expert in
the economics of inter-
collegiate athletics
Tuesday described the
NCAA as a price fixing
cartel that uses its
monopoly power to
prevent competition for
television rights to col-
lege football games.
James Koch, a pro-
fessor of economics
and provost at Ball
State University in
Muncie, Ind said
more games could be
broadcast and univer-
sities could greatly in-
crease revenues if thev
controlled their own
television rights.
' � A n un coerced,
freely-operating market
that is not rigged would
result in more schools
and a greater variety of
schools being televis-
ed he said.
Koch's testimony
came in the second da
of a trial on a suit by
the universities of
Oklahoma and Georgia
against the NCAA that
claims the sports
organization is
violating federal anti-
mist law s.
1 h,
maintained its control
ol television contracts
is necessary,
reasonable and com-
petitive and that n
fairly distributes
revenues among all
member schools.
Koch accused the
NCAA ol wielding
monopoly power to
block others from com-
peting tor television
rights to the games dnd
discouraging the net-
works from bidding
againsl each other for
those rights.
He called the NC
a highly successful
cartel that has
prevented its members
from receiving more
n e
mmimu m
amount ol revenue
agreed upon in the
NC A contract with
the networks.
1 he economist cited
Nv AA regulations that
resulted in two schools
receiving the same fee
I or a game televised on
20" stations as that col-
lected by schools play-
ing a game broadcast
on four stations.
Oklahoma and
Southern California
received the same
amount tor their na-
tional televised game
last Sept. 9 as The
Citadel (S.C .) and Ap-
palachian State (N.C.)
did for a regional
broadcast. earlier
witnesses testified.
"In anv free market
where there are no con-
straints on trade, one
would have expected a
much higher price to be
paid for the very
popular Oklahoma-
Southern California
game and less to be
paid for The Citadel's
game Koch said.
The Oklahoma game
would have been worth
50 to 100 times as much
as The Citadel's game
on the open market, he
I ee Allan Smith, vice
president of an NBC
affiliate in Oklahoma
City, testified his sta-
tion would compete for
the rights to Oklahoma
and Oklahoma State
football games if they
were available.
"Our station would
certainly be in the bid-
ding war. We'd certain-
ly push the price up
pretty good said
Smith, who admitted
his commercial station
probably couldn't com-
pete with the millions
of dollars a cable or
pay-TV system would
Charles Neinas, ex-
ecutive director of the
College Football
Association, testified
NCAA control of the
t e 1 e v i s o n rights
penalizes universities
by preventing them
from selling those
rights to the highest
broadcast biddei
But NCAA attorney
Robert Harry respond-
ed that the contract sets
only minimum prices
and that schools have
the chance to negotiate
for higher television
Schools can receive
more money from the
networks if they agree
to change the date or
place of a game. Harry
said, adding that such
incentive fees prove
bargaining exists.
"()ur position is that
it (the contract) is the
minimum Harry
said. " The actual rights
fees may aggregate
much more than that
Harry also said
universities have been
allowed more television
exposure and greater
flexibility under a con-
tract signed with ABC
and CBS networks last
But Neinas said the
situation was improv-
ing for universities only
because of the presence
of theCFA.
"The CIA's negotia-
tions in the television
market had a full, com-
petitive effect Neinas
The C FA. made up
ol most of the nation's
major colleges, had at-
tempted to negotiate its
own multi-million
dollar television
package. But the plan-
tiffs in the current suit
have charged that
threatened NCAA
sanctions destroyed a
proposed contract bet-
ween NBC televison
and the CIA last fall.
