Campus Police Say Dill Arrests Up
Staff Writer
There has been a rise in recent
months in the number of arrests by
ECU security officers for driving
under the influence on the campus.
There were thirteen such incidents in
October. This figure stands in con-
trast to thirteen for the whole year
in 1980.
ECU Chief of Detectives Francis
Eddings attributes the rise in arrests
to an overall increase in the number
of offenses. "There appears to be
more people driving who are drink-
ing he stated. "Another reason
(for the umber of arrests) could be
that the officers are now more alert
to this sort of thing
Eddings said the problem was not
confined to ECU. "I've talked with
people in other places he said,
"and the trend seems to be the same
Eddings said that he did not think
that law changes, such as the pro-
posal currently before Gov. James
B. Hunt to raise the legal drinking
age, would have much effect of the
number of offenses. He added that
stricter punishment for convicted
offenders might hold down the
number of offenses. "I think that
more stringent disciplinary action
with people convicted would create
a deterrent" he said.
Eddings noted that not all those
arrested for driving under the in-
fluence on campus were not
students. "They're mostly in the
same age bracket as students. Some
of them are visiting friends on cam-
pus or whatever Eddings said. He
said that most suspects were stopped
at night.
"If a person is stopped on cam-
pus, and there is a reason they are
stopped, such as driving left of
center, weaving or driving reckless-
ly, they are asked to perform a series
of sobriety tests, such as standing on
one foot with arms extended and
touching the end of one finger to the
end of his nose said Eddings.
If it is the opinion of the officer
that the suspect is intoxicated, the
suspect is then arrested and taken to
the magisrate's office, where a
breathalyzer test is administered to
determine the alcohol content of the
blood. A count of .10 is considered
intoxicated in North Carolina. Ed-
dings said that ECU has four
liscensed breathalyzer operators on
the security staff.
If the suspect refuses to take the
breathalyzer test, their license is
automatically revoked for six mon-
ths and they may still be charged
with DU1, Eddings warned.
Eddings said that campus security
forces would continue to be on the
alert for people driving under the in-
fluence on campus.
"Our job is the safety and welfare
of the students and everyone who
comes on this campus he stated.
"If we can keep someone from be-
ing killed or killing someone else or
being injured or injuring somebody
else, then we are accomplishing our

ECU Honor Fraternity Picked As Number One In Country
Staff Urilrr
The Tau Chapter of ECU's Phi
Sigma Pi national honor fraternity
has been chosen the most outstan-
ding chapter in the nation for the
eighteenth consecutive time.
The Tau's received the 1982
Joseph Torshia Outstanding
Chapter Award, at the fraternity's
recent national convention in Arl-
ington, Va. The ECU chapter has
actually reigned as number one for
over twenty years since the award
was originally given every two years.
ECU professor of economics Dr.
Jack W. Thornton, who is faculty
advisor to the Tau chapter, praised
the students for their hard work and
"It's a student run organization
(and) it's student dedication that ac-
counts for the winning of the
award Thornton said.
According to Thornton Phi
Sigma Pi is the oldest fraternal
organization on campus. They have
been active since 1936.
Two chapter members Robert
Zalimeni, an ECU computer science
manor and Michael Hosey, a
graduate student, were also chosen
as recipients of the Richard Cecil
Todd scholarship award of $600
each. The scholarship program was
established by Dr. Richard C. Todd,
professor of history and one of the
founders of the ECU chapter. "It's
a mighty fine organizaiton on cam-
pus Todd told The East Caroli-
nian in a telephone interview from
his Greenville home. "I'm real pro-
ud of it
Todd said that the fraternity was
conceived in 1916 because at the
time teachers training schools were
not allowed to have chapters of Phi
Beta Kappa. Todd noted that at one
time ECU was called East Carolina
Teachers Training School.
Todd further noted that the Phi
Sigma Pi's are based on the "tripod
of scholarship first, leadership se-
cond, and fellowship third
The Tau chapter was chosen for
the award based on the various ways
they developed these three criteria.
The overall grade point average of
all 40-plus members were compiled,
the number of service projects they
performed was considered as well as
the leadership skills of its members.
Thornton mentioned that the
group had participated in several
service projects throughout the
1981-82 academic year including an
Easter Party for disabled children, a
Christmas party for under-
priveleged children and volunteer
work with the American Cancer
A sudent must have a grade point
average of 3.3 or better to be con-
sidered for Phi Sigma Pi member-
ship. It is open to both men and
women from all disciplines who
have completed between 32 and 96
credit hours. Currently there are ap-
proximately 20 new pledges to the
Zalimani and Hosey were both
also elected to national offices dur-
ing the convention. Zalimeni was
elected national vice president and
Hosey national alumni represen-
tative. Both will serve two year
With 21 members attending, Tau
chapter had the largest attendencc at
the convention.
Drunken Driver Causes Wreck
Student Recovering After Auto Accident
Robert Morgan
Former U.S. Senator Robert Morgan from North Carolina spoke in
Mendenhall Student Center last nieht to the N.C. Student Legislature.
Staff Writer
An ECU student, who was
seriously injured when her car was
struck by another vehicle which was
being pursued by police in a high-
speed chase, is recovering well at her
mother's home in nearby Walston-
ECU Biology student Teresa
Karen Whitley's vehicle was struck
in the early morning hours of Fri-
day, Sept. 3, by a truck being driven
by another ECU student, David
Earl Jackson. At the time, the
Jackson vehicle was being pursued
by the ECU campus police in a high-
speed chase through narrow Green-
ville streets near the Tar River.
As a result of the accident,
Whitley spent three weeks in Pitt
County Memorial Hospital with a
number of serious facial injuries
which have required operations to
restructure her bones.
Jackson was arrested and charged
with driving under the influence as
well as other offenses at the time of
the accident. He suffered no serious
He was subsequently given a one
month suspended jail sentence, a
four-year probation, a $500 fine,
and told to pay $100 for DUI
school. Jackson was also ordered to
spend five days in jail after classes
are ended for the fall semester.
According to Teresa's mother,
Mrs. Margaret Whitley, her
daughter is "making progress
but, "she still has a long way to
Teresa was recently readmitted to
the hospital to have a steel pin
removed from her face that was at-
tached to her cheek bones. Some in-
fection and swelling of her left eye
resulted, and she was forced to
spend four more days in the
Mrs. Whitley said her daughter
still cannot eat hard food that re-
quires a lot of chewing and other
eating restrictions because of her
condition. She also stated that
Teresa would need a series of dental
work to straighten her teeth and
replace those that are missing from
the accident.
At the present time, Teresa is no
longer required to take any medica-
tion and she's not in a lot of pain.
However she does experience some
memory loss on occasions. Teresa is
focusing her studies on her ambition
to become a medical doctor.
Teresa is Mrs. Whitley's only
child and throughout the ordeal she
maintained a daily vigil at her
daughter's bedside. For seven weeks
Teresa was on a restricted diet of
clear liquids because her mouth was
At the time of her accident there
was a lot of debate among ECU
students about whether police
should engage in high speed
chases.Mrs. Whitley felt the inci-
dent could have been prevented had
the officer, Lt. Ernest Suggs, not
pursued the Jackson vehicle at such
high speeds. Other people felt
Suggs' decision was correct.
Teresa has been under the care of
Dr. Ira Hardy, a neurosurgeon and
Dr. Kelly Wallace, who specializes
in plastic and reconstructive
She is now beginning to drive
again, but she did experience some
fear at first. "She's very cautious
Mrs. Whitley added.
Foreign Student Group Holds
International Festival For All
Former U.S. Senator Robert Morgan
Gives Lecture On Politics To Campus
Slaff Writer
Approximately 50 ECU students,
professors and staff members at-
tended a reception last night spon-
sored by the North Carolina Student
Legislature. Former Sen. Robert
Morgan was the guest speaker at the
Morgan, a 1947 alumnus of ECU,
directed his speech towards
members of the NCSL and talked
about how to become active in
He emphasized that the best way
to get started is to begin at the grass
roots level of politics. Too many
people, he said, think they, can run
for an office like governor before
they do their "labor in the
Elected to the Senate in 1974,
Morgan held a number of public of-
fices before becoming a senator.
These included state senator, senate
pro tempore and attorney general.
His first legislative experience, he
pointed out, was through his work
with the NCSL as a ECU student.
After his speech, Morgan opened
the floor for questions from the au-
dience. Anticipating and encourag-
ing hard hitting questions, Morgan
seemed somewhat disappointed at
the relatively soft inquiries about
such topics as the B-l bomber, the
MX missle and the tobacco tax in-
Criticizing Sen. Jesse Helms,
D-N.C, as shrewd and mean,
Morgan claimed that the
Republican's tactics in the senate
are designed more to raise money
than to move ahead with construc-
tive legislaton.
Morgan referred to the comments
of Sen Alan Cranston, D-Calif
who said that Helms has brought a
sense of meanness to the Senate that
has not been there since the early
In his campaign for reelection in
1980, Morgan was defeated by
former ECU political science pro-
fessor John East. He was the victim
of a controversal negative campaign
waged against him by East and the
Congressional Club.
The International Student
Association held their annual Inter-
national Dinner featuring various
dishes from 25 countries for a sell-
out crowd in MendenhalPs multi-
purpose room.
The ISA, which has close to 100
members from 39 countries, is open
to any ECU student. According to
ISA President Cecilia Vaca Pardo,
21, an ECU business student, the
group is trying to recruit more
members. "The group we have now
is a very fun group to work with
Vaca Pardo said. "I like all students
to participate; I think they miss
something by not participating
"It's a good source of cultural in-
formation added ISA member
Oscar I. Orozco who helped with
the entertainment for the dinner.
Orozco, who is originally from
Peru, is majoring in Psychology.
Like Vaca Pardo, who moved to the
U.S. from Boiovia, Orozco hopes
more students will get involved in
ISA activities.
"The ISA brings all foreign
students together Orozco said.
"Its purpose is to make students feel
comfortable at school and share
.their cultures with the other students
and the American community
"It's more than just a group
Vaca Pardo said. "It's a communi-
ty added German Suarez, a
sophomore in pre-engineering.
Suarez is also from Bolivia.
"All of us (foreign
students)have different ex-
periences, but we go through the
same process of adapting to this new
culture said Vaca Pardo.
The dinner consisted of a buffet
of food from the various countries
that ISA members hail from, as well
as dancing music and other cultural
activities such as Japanese paper
folding called origami.
A Costa Rican dance known as
the Salsa was performed as well as a
Bamboo dance from the Philippines
known as the Tinikling, a dabkee
Lebanese dance, two belly dances,
and a Kaza Chock Russian dance.
Orozco performed a Bolivian accor-
dian piece known as the Labamba.
Orozco and Vaca Pardo noted
that all ECU students � not just
foreign students � are invited to
join in their activities. "I think
every member represents a great
source of information Vaca Par-
do said. "This is a good way for the
Americans to see what our culture is
like added Suarez.
Vaca Pardo prepared a Bolivian
Fruit Salad for the dinner. "You
mix all kinds of fruits, then add
sugar and wine she said,
"Bolivian wine of course
Suarez prepared another dish
known as arroz con polio or chicken
with rice. "Everybody seemed so
enthusiastic about the dinner
Vaca Pardo said. "It seems like they
really enjoyed themselves
The dinner, which took over a
month to arrange, was sold out two
days in advance and was an all-you-
can-eat event.

When it comes to the food at Taco
Bell there's really only one school
of thought. What a difference!
To begin with, your order's made
up fresh from the best ingredients.
That's different. And it's all served
up piping hot to be sure you get all of
the delicious flavor. That's different.
You also get served fast, which
means that our schedule will keep
you on yours. That's different.
And you get it all at the terrific
Taco Belt, price. That's really different.
Plus, where else do you find food
with deliciously different names like
Taco Supreme Burrito Supreme,
and Enchirito.? Each one a far cry
from the usual fast food fare (not to
mention whatever that is they serve
in the cafeteria).
So cut out the coupon, then cut
out for Taco Bell and see for your-
self what a difference we make.

Vietnam Vets' Memorial
Those Left Behind Forget Too Quickly
"Maybe it's time to get it behind
us once and for all
These philosophical, if not
ominous, words (those spoken by
Vietnam vet Glen Mundy to
Newsweek magazine last week)
have, perhaps, best characterized
the post-war plight of American
veterans and the American public.
And amid all the commemorative
regalia at the recent dedication of
the Vietnam Veterans' Memorial in
Washington, D.C forgetfulness
was, indeed, the dominant theme.
They gathered by the thousands
to salute the dead, to console one
another and to pay tribute to those
who returned home disabled � hav-
ing suffered both physical and men-
tal wounds.
For many, the anguish continues.
Many were rendered permanently
disabled or disfigured in a war they
had no business fighting. And for
many, if not most, the toll of mental
anguish is overwhelming.
But whereas the recent com-
memorative ceremonies may, in-
deed, have been marked by a theme
of forgetfulness, we who never saw
the terrors would surely be mistaken
if we should forget.
In recent years, the Vietnam war
has become regarded as a "black
era" in American history. And con-
sidering the fact that 57,939 U.S.
lives were lost in the still-unclear
conflict, it is certainly a time worth
forgetting. But if putting the war
out of mind causes us to forget
those who suffered � and who con-
tinue to suffer � then we have sure-
ly forgotten too much.
War memorials and the like are
fine. If nothing else, they
demonstrate the sympathies of
those of us who remained. But for
the thousands of veterans who came
home in wheelchairs, the welcome
home was short-lived. They have to
deal with the horrors � of both the
war and the subsequent return �
It seems we have written off the
war as a mistake, having never paid
fitting tribute to those who fought
in it. Why, even the memorial itself
was financed almost totally by the
veterans themselves. And almost as
an ultimate affront to the vets,
neither Ronald Reagan nor Nancy
(who had been named honorable
cochairperson of the "National
Salute to Vietnam Veterans") at-
tended the ceremonies.
President Richard Nixon's
declaration of "peace with dignity"
in the early 70s has, indeed, proven
itself an exercise in empty speech, a
perfect example of the frustrations
and futility most of the Vietnam
veterans have since experienced.
They are entitled to forget; we are

Nuclear Build- Up The Ultimate Irony
(On Nov. 11) I read Keith Brittain's
"Out For World Conquest" and was
somewhat vexed by the article's ex-
cessive paranoia, which seems to
characterize the majority of neo-Falwell
Reaganites. While I agree that Kremlin
leaders are pursuing an expansionist
policy, McCarthy type fear and
paranoia is no way to counter this
"threat In short, we don't need
"Uncle Ronnie" and "Brother Jerry"
personae making American foreign
policy. To me, wasting billions of
dollars on nuclear armament seems
ridiculous when we can already an-
nihilate the vast majority of Soviet
Is the United States any more secure if
it can destroy the Soviet Union eight
times instead of four? Once, 1 think,
should suffice.
I also consider the mass build-up of
conventional forces to be a waste of
money. While the U.S. needs sufficient
military forces to defend its interests at
home and provide limited naval and air
support for European allies (and, in the
short run, Japan) matching the Soviet
build-up is not only impossible but un-
First of all, the United States of
America hasn't as many enemies as the
Soviet Union. Take China, for instance,
which now has a population exceeding
one billion and the world's largest army.
While its army may be technologically
lacking by Western standards, China's
vast size and population make it a for-
midable opponent for any opposing
force short of God.
To the west of the Soviet Union, there
is NATO, which consists of the most po-
tent military and economic forces in the
world. Even without the United States,
Western Europe, with its dense popula-
tion and technologically advanced
military and society would be invincible
in the face of a Soviet attack.
Take, for example, Italy, France,
Great Britain and West Germany, the
four principle military and economic
powers which have a combined popula-
tion of more than 200 million. Only a
halfwit would even consider launching
an attack against such awesome powers.
Yet if the Soviets were to launch an at-
tack against NATO, not only would they
go against France, Great Britain, West
Germany and Italy, but also Spain,
Greece, Turkey, Denmark, Canada and,
of course, the United States. Thus, it
becomes clear that the U.S with its
Chinese and European allies, is not in
such a position that it must counter the
Soviet threat alone.
Yet Reagan seems bent on pursuing a
policy that cannot be termed anything
except foolish. By overburdening
America's economy with wasteful
military spending and record budget
deficits (Who was the 1980 presidential
candidate who was going to balance the
budget?) and alienating European allies,
he is weakening America's position at
home and abroad. Yet Reagan sup-
porters always come to Reagan's rescue
with the ever-popular catch phrase
"Well, he's trying
What I want to know is what in hell is

dale? John Anderson? Edward Ken-

Although their intentions are good,
even noble � I'm assuming they're not
accomplices or unwitting dupes of the
KGB � the liberal do-gooders that pro-
fusely infest our campus media should
remove their idealistically tinted
sunglasses and look at the world in the
bright light of reality.
History teaches us that the strong
have always exploited the weak (the U.S.
at the end of WW II is one of the few ex-
eptions that come to mind), and to think
that the Soviets will dismantle their
nuclear arsenal if we dismantle ours first
contradicts 6,000 years of history and
the basic human nature of greed in a
finite environment. The Soviet subjuga-
tion of a prostrate Eastern Europe after
WW II is an example of how they
capitalize on weakness. It is a fact, a
lesson in reality that the idealists,
somehow, don't see.
A less obvious example of the flawed
reasoning of the idealistic do-gooders is
the world hunger causes they champion
on our campus. To aid a nation whose
people are starving because of an earth-
quake, floods or some other disaster has
disrupted its normally healthy, self-
sustaining way of life is good. Lives are
saved, and after the emergency has pass-
ed, the people can return to their natural
state of existence. But to continuously
supply food to a nation that does not
have the resources to feed its people is a
disservice and only exacerbates the na-
tion's plight. The population continues
to grow, and the disparity between
stomachs and natural resources in-
creases, causing more hunger and re-
quiring even more aid. This is not con-
jecture or my own slanted opinion but a
fact supported by reality. One need only
look at the recent histories of India and
Following WW II, both nations were
in similar predicaments. They both had
large illiterate populations without a
developed agriculture to feed them and
no modern industry to provide a decent
standard of living. Starvation and
poverty abounded.
India, because it remained aligned
with the West and adopted democratic
principles, has received constant and
massive amounts of food aid for the past
35 years. Yet, hunger and starvation are
a greater problem today; the population
is ever increasing; industry and
agriculture continue to founder. Basical-
ly, India has not solved its problems
because it has not been compelled to,
thanks to food aid from abroad.
China, because of its communist
revolution, has received no aid from the
West and certainly no food from its in-
itial patron and present antagonist the
Soviet Union � they can't feed
themselves. So, for the 35 years China
has struggled alone to solve her over-
whelming problems. In a do-or-die
situation with no foreign aid, China has
made great progress stablizing her
population, feeding her people and rais-
ing their standard of living. India,
because of the millions of tons of
Western grain, has not.
I am not condemning or praising
either communism or democracy; the
political systems are incidental facts ir-
revalent to my argument. I only point
out the harm we do by continuously sup-
porting nations that have popula-
tionresource imbalances, nations that
are inherently sick. A sore, if allowed to
scab over, will heal itself in time. So,
too, will sick nations if we let them. A
natural balance and natural order will
emerge if the idealistic do-gooders will
take off their rose-tinted glasses and
confront reality.

'Bad' Books Burned To Protect Jerry's Kids
A week ago, The East Carolinian ran a
story concerning the trials and tribulations
of Dr. Gene D. Lanier, a professor of
library science and chairman of the In-
tellectual Freedom Committee of the
North Carolina Library Association, an
organization vocally opposed to and
fighting against literature censorship.
Aside from restating the tiresome
arguments of Moral Majority book ban-
ners, the story brought the ageless con-
troversy surrounding First amendment
rights back to the forefront once again.
For years � far too many years �
groups like the Moral Majority, Religious
Round Table and Christian Voice have at-
tempted at various locations nationwide to
practice their own forms of ex post-facto
censorship. Community school and library
facilities have become the most frequent
targets for attempted bannings.
But bannings account for only part of
their destructive work. In the past six years
alone, groups like the Moral Majority have
also incited book and record burnings,
which have accounted for the destruction
of at least $5 million worth of media pro-
ducts, a fact reminiscent � among other
things � of Nazi Germany.
Whereas in most highly-principled con-
troversies, each side adheres to at least a
few valid points, it would be difficult to
find the slightest trace of validity in the
arguments of would-be book banners.
And as the story pointed out, these
organizations, all of which inevitably claim
"moral" (hence, religious) objections to
various literary works, still make attempts
to censor materials they deem anti-
American or communist-inspired.
In order to "protect" the young
American public, these groups would ban
the likes of Catcher in the Rye, Caich-22,
The Crapes of Wrath, all of which are, in-
deed, prime examples of immorality, aber-
rations against both God and country.
Why attempts have even been made � and
formal complaints lodged � against such
obscene, vulgar works as The Adventures
of Huckleberry Finn, The Diary of Anne
Frank and William Shakespeare's
"porno" play, The Merchant of Venice.
Mike Hughes
Just The Hay It Is
Needless to say, this is mere insanity. If
the Moral Majority were allowed to prac-
tice as they wish, they would have us
reading Trixie Bilden novels for enter-
tainment until we turn 30, watching reruns
of Father Knows Best for sex-education in-
struction and dancing to the upbeat tunes
of the Ernest Angley Singers (provided, of
course, we didn't dance too closely and
were in bed by 10:30 p.m.).
It somehow seems ironic, too, that a
bunch of people calling themselves Chris-
tian Americans should ignore many of the
fundamental tenets of both Christianity
and patriotism. Are we to understand from
their claims that Russians and other com-
munists are lesser people merely by virtue
of their heritage or political structure? Is a
communist-sympathetic or communist-
inspired work evil from its inception?
And for those organizations to claim
patriotism as the other basis for their cen-
sorship well, that is simply a conflict in
terms no less. Why, practically
everything these book burners stand for (in
regards to the issue at hand) runs directly
against American principles. Censorship
has no place in a free society, lest the
marketplace of ideas (one of our greatest
tools) wither away.
What groups like the Moral Majority
and the Religious Round Table fail to
realize is that by attempting to impose their
literary and ethical values on others �
which is exactly what they're trying to do
� they are merely likening themselves that
much more to those sworn aggressors they
so vehemently attack. Without a doubt,
these "moral" censors win the 1982 Frank
Burns Award for patriotic ignorance.
I've read a number of books on the
Moral Majority hitlists, and I can honestly
say that I have never been incited to
perversion or other social deviation by
those or any other hterary works. (Perhaps
I've been perverse all along; that's beside
the point.) But like any other American, I
can exercise freedom of choice. That was
set forth by our nation's forefathers in the
U.S. Constitution � not only as a privilege
of sorts, but as a protection against the
likes of these would-be censors.
I can choose to reject the books that are,
to me, "patently offensive But if
another person finds some sort of worth in
the same work � be it literary or otherwise
� then who am I to deny him or her the
privilege, the right to read?
By the same token, who are the Mora)
Majority, the Religious Round Table and
the Christian Voice that they feel they can
dictate and legislate morality for us all?
If reading such "obscene" literature as
Catcher in the Rye, Catch-22 ox, God for-
bid, a Playboy interview with Henry Fon-
da makes me a lesser American or a lesser
moral being in their eyes, I really couldn't
care less.
� � �
On the other hand, though, the con-
troversy does provide us � or well, me
anyway � with some light entertainment.
Being the victim of an uncontrollably-
wandering, if not sick, mind, I can't help
but wonder what will happen in the near
future if the present rate of influence by
the Moral Majority continues.
I can see it now: The year is 1988; Chief
Justice Falwell sits upright behind the
bench, which has incidentally been moved
to Lynchburg, Va. The Court's daily
docket reveals a wide variety of cases,
ranging from a pending obscenity ruling
on the Readers Digest Condensed Bible to
an 13-year-old accused of espionage for
reading "subversive" comic books.
But high atop the list is yet another
obscenity case invloving the Dr. Seuss
classic Are you My Mother? After
minutes of debate and consolation behind
closed doors. Justices Mel and Norma
Gabler return to the full courtroom with
the verdict. Writing the unanymous deci-
sion, Justice Graham expounds: It
would seem that the High Court's position
on cases such as these, in which flagrant
undermining of the family unit is so very
obvious, would likewise be obvious. Why,
the obscenty and profanity precedents set
in Moral Majority v. Walt Disney Produc-
tions (I U.S. 4: 3-5) alone compel this
Court to uphold the lower court's obsceni-
ty ruling District Judge Angley is a per-
sonal friend of mine and a dam uh darn
good judge
And the effects spread to other facets of
American life as well, such as football: No
longer allowed to play tackle because of its
homosexual implications, the players are
forced to reform the league under the
auspices of the Rev. Jesse Jackson, whose
first executive actions include rescheduling
games for Tuesday mornings, reshaping
the pigskin (so it doesn't look "so dread-
fully much like two female breasts joined
in the middle") and terminating the con-
tracts of those "Godless hordes" of NFL
infiltrators from such anti-American na-
tions as Puerto Rico, Nigeria and Canada.
Millions of hot dog venders around the
country are suddenly rendered jobless for
"peddling flagrantly phallic foods
Moral Majority police officers, armed
with clerical collars, burlap sacks and "the
grace of God patrol neighborhood
beaches and swimming pools, insuring that
the strict bathing dress codes arc enforced.
Of course, Lite Beer commercials and

N.C. Symphony Performing
Tops Whiz' Knight mil Conduct In Goldsboro
From Staff Reports
The North Carolina Symphony
will present a holiday pops concert
under the direction of conductor
Eric Knight in Goldsboro's Eastern
Wayne High School Auditorium on
Tuesday, Nov. 30 at 8 p.m.
The program will include
Berezowsky's Christmas Festival
Overture (Ukrainian Noel), A
Christmas Package arranged by Eric
Knight, Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker
Suite, Gabrieli's Canzona for Triple
Brass Choirs, Humperdinck's
Hansel and Gretel, A Hanukkah
Treat arranged by Knight, and Pro-
kofiev's Lt. Kije Suite.
Tickets for this performance are
$8 for adults and $5 for senior
citizens and students and will be
available at the door on the night of
the concert.
Dubbed "Pops Whiz" by the
Philadelphia Bulletin following a
concert with the Philadelphia Or-
chestra, Eric Knight, principal pops
conductor of the Baltimore and
N.C. Symphony orchestras, is one
of today's most sought-after pops
conductors. During his career he has
presided over the symphonies of
Atlanta, Buffalo, Dallas, Denver,
Detroit, Indianapolis, Kansas City,
Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Min-
nesota, Pittsburgh, Rochester, San
Antonio, San Diego, Seattle,
Syracuse, etc.
Knight Wrote
For Fiedler &
Boston Pops
For ten years Knight worked
closely with Arthur Fiedler, supply-
ing the late maestro with many
premiere arrangements for the
Boston Pops and for his guest con-
ducting throughout the world. After
Fiedler's death, Knight programm-
ed and conducted "A Fiedler
Tribute" which has become a
hallmark pops presentation
throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Aside from Knight's countless ar-
rangements and orchestrations
recorded by the Boston Pops, he is
continually called upon to create
special arrangements for leading
stars. Up in Central Park, an Angel
Records album featuring Beverly
Sills and Sherrill Milnes, is the result
of such a collaboration. So impress-
ed was Ms. Sills with Knight's way
with the orchestra, she has invited
him to conduct the pops segment of
her New York City Opera galas held
annually at the State Theatre of Lin-
coln Center.
In 1981, Knight twice contributed
to the musical life of the White
House. He conducted the orchestra
at President Reagan's pre-
inauguration festivities, and arrang-
ed a medly of Christmas carols
presented in the Oval Office by Ms.
Sills and members of the new York
City Opera and the U.S. Marine
Corps Band.
For the opening of Baltimore's
new symphony hall in September,
1983, Knight has been asked to com-
pose an original work to be per-
formed by the Baltimore Symphony
and Maestro Sergiu Comissiona,
who has already conducted several

When I was a student at the N.C.
School of the Arts, there was one
young dancer named Dane Smith
whom all the girls envied. She was
almost unanimously considered the
best dancer in school at the time,
both for her prodigious technique
and her endearing stage presence.
Well, last Thursday night I saw her
again, this time as a professional
performer, and she was better than
ever. She is now winning the hearts
of audiences and the envy of
dancers as a member of American
Ballet Theatre II, the junior training
company of the world-renown
American Ballet Theatre.
ABT II performed in McGinnis
Theatre to a nearly sold out house.
The troupe of seventeen young
dancers gave a strong performance
of a heavily classic repertory, with
only occasional weak spots due to
the dancers' youth and inex-
In the only contemporary piece
of the evening, Dane Smith and
Christophe Caballero put on the
strongest performance of the night
in Diary, choreographed by Lynne
Taylor-Corbett. Dancing to a piano
and the voice of Judith Lander, the
two young peformers stole the show
in an powerful and emotion-packed
dramatic love duet. Caballero prov-
ed himself to be a dancer of cap-
tivating strength and stage presence,
as well as solid dance technique.
Smith was equally as competent.
The choreography of the duet,
which proved to be the audience
favorite for the evening, won a
Silver Medal at the International
Ballet Competition.
The evening's most humorous
piece was Pas Des Deesses,
choreographed by Robert Joffery.
A period piece about four well-
known 19th century ballerinas, the
archiac style and dated romantic
theme touched more funny bones
than heart strings. John Turjoman
as the idyllic cavilier partner of the
three ballerinas came off more as a
knight in plastic armour. Theresa
De Rose, Mary Wilson and Dane
Smith played their roles ap-
propriately tongue-and-cheek to fit
the dance's saccharine-sweet and
stilted storyline. Only chuckles
could be expected for this ballet
whose time is past, because the vir-
tuosity of the young dancers in the
awkward and comic choreography
couldn't save the piece. Never-
theless, it proved to be enjoyable.
The program's opening ballet.
Tribute, by Frederic Franklin, was
a model of the young ensemble's
well-rehearsed unison. While the
choreography of this neo-classical,
lyric ballet in the style of Balanchine
was unexceptional for the most
part, the company's thorough train-
ing shown through. The dance calls
for perfect unison and intricate tim-
ing between the six dancers onstage,
often when they cannot sec one
another. They pulled it off flawless-
ly. ABT II has had Tribute in its
repertory only a few months, but
they evidently knew the piece well.
The Grand Pas from Raymonda,
a traditional Russian ballet, was the
finale of the evening. Dane Smith
demonstrated again her excellent
technique in the female lead of the
grand pas de deux. She was in total
command during the time she was
on stage, and the audience broke in-
to an applause of admiration for her
more than once. John Turjoman
had a better opprotunity to show his
talents as Smith's partner and as the
male lead. His extension and flex-
ibility along some spectacular jumps
were highlights of the piece and
drew spontaneous reactions of
praise from the audience. The
ensemble of ten dancers again work-
ed in fliud and near-perfect sym-
metry; and danceri with spirit the
Hungarian folk dances in the ballet.
Those coming to the concert and
expecting to see a performance
equal in quality to the parent com-
pany would be dissapointed. These

Hanging In There
Airman's Latest Also Mediocre
Villa Voice
NEW YORK � The cinema is so far superior to the
theater these days that even a bad play can be made into
a not-so-bad movie. At least that is what I assume has
occured in Robert Altman's transference of Ed Grac-
zyk's incredibly contrived dramatic dirge Come Back to
the 5 and Dime Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean, from stage
to screen.
From what I have heard of the critically lambasted
Broadway production, it seems that Altman was not
even able to establish the flashback machinery by which
a James Dean fan club celebrates its 20th anniversary,
mostly by recollecting the hectic days when Giant was
being shot on location near the Texas wasteland in
which the fan club was formed. I had heard also that
Cher was the revelation of the play, though Sandy Den-
nis had the biggest part, and Karen Black, well Ac-
tually, as I recall, people were very vague about Karen
Black. They were vague about the plot, too, and so I
assummed that there wasn't much plot. Wow! Was I
wrong! Come Back to the 5 and Dime has turned up
with the craziest plot since a Danish filmmaker an-
nounced some years ago his intention of filming the sex
life of Jesus Christ. Yet though Graczyk's plot is lurid
almost beyond belief, I could anticipate most if its
squalid revelations from a long way off. Hence, when
Mona (Sandy Denis) announced that her 20-year-old
son is the fruit of her one-night-stand with the late
James Dean, it is fairly obvious that she has fantasized
the Dean star-fuck out of an actual union with Joe, a
local Dean lookalike (Mark Patton), with gay tenden-
cies that lead to his being driven from the town in a
scenario of persecuted eccentricity that flows from
Winesburg, Ohio, through William Inge to Lanford
Wilson. Why Joe happens to be the only male member
of the James Dean fan club is the kind of mundane
question we are not encouraged to ask of this floridly
pretentious conceit. Of the 12 acting credits in the film,
11 belong to women, nine assigned to the fan club, and
one to the older woman who is the proprietress of the 5
and Dime. . .
This brings up the mysterious Joanne (Karen Black),
who pops up at the 5 and Dime in a Porsche (parked as
far offscreen as it is offstage). After a few moments of
what looks like a mysteriously overbearing star turn,
Joanne begins dropping enough hints that she is not
merely a glamorous stranger, but someone more central
to the plot, that what begins as a wild suspicion
degenerates into a turgid reality. Joanne is of course Joe
after a sex-change operation, and, hence she is the real
"father" of Jamie Dean. This leaves us with Sissy
(Cher) and her revelation of a traumatic mastectomy
that almost gets lost in the shuffle of sensationalism.
Among the subordinate members of the fan club are
Stella Mae (Kathy Bates), rich, raunchy, and childless;
and Edna Louise (Marta Heflin), plain, gauche, but ac-
cording to the wistfully envious Joanne, glowingly preg-
The various thematic configurations of the script con-
stitute a clumsy parody of just about every "serious"
American play of the past 40 years. Blance Dubois hav-
ing a Picnic at Bus Stop while waiting for A Streetcar
Named Dean Sire. At his best, Altman has tended to
transcend the ideological pretentiousness of his projects
with the behavioral resourcefulness of his characters.
He is handicapped in this instance by his fidelity to a
text that is too painfully and laboriously explicit to
allow any of the characters any existential breathing
space. Still, he has profited from his greater proficiency
on screen with the visual mechanisms of mirrored
Also, Sandy Dennis, Cher, and Karen Black become
texts in themselves in a film, whereas they are merely
star presences struggling with impossible parts in a play.
Dennis, Cher, and Black are an interesting study in con-
trasts, though Dennis is saddled with the most irritating
role imaginable. Cher reveals once more, at least to me,
that she could have been a major movie talent with a lit-
tle bit of luck. As for Karen Black, her extremely asser-
tive femininity makes her almost ideal casting as the
transsexual, and wildly funny in the bargain. It may
seem like a long way, and all down, from Nashville to
the 5 and Dune, but this is hardly the first time in
Altman's career that his vaudeville has been infinitely
superior to his vision.

Bucs End Season Tying Best Record In State
Spons Editor
"It was a storybook
finishThose were the words of
head football coach Ed Emory after
the Pirates shocked Temple Univer-
sity Saturday, 23-10, in
Philadelphia's Veterans Stadium.
With only 6,135 people on hand,
the Bucs displayed an option attack
that the Owls have not been up
against this year. The win led the
Pirates to their third straight victory
on the road and a 7-4 record.
"I'm just thrilled to finish 7-4
said Emory. "If any 7-4 team goes
to a bowl game, then East Carolina
should be the one picked. We had to
win on the road
There were quite a few valuable
players in the game, but none more
so than Philly's own Kevin Ingram.
Starting in his third straight game,
sophomore quarterback Kevin In-
gram showed the hometown folks
just what he was capable of. Ingram
gained 105 yards rushing, completed
six of 12 attempts for 101 yards and
scrambled for two touchdowns to
top off his homecoming perfor-
'I was feelin' good today In-
gram said. "Having all the family
and friends here could have affected
me for today, but I tried to block all
that out of the mind. I don't think it
hurt me any
Led by Ingram, the Pirates rolled
up 337 yards rushing and 455 yards
in total offense. Freshman tailback
Tony Baker had the finest day of his
career with 20 carries for 165 yards
to beat his previous record of 154.
Offensive coordinator Larry
Beckish, who just completed his
first season with the Pirates, praised
the offensive team for an outstan-
ding performanceThey just did a
super job today he said. "Kevin
has really come on
Beckish said he thought the
Pirates would score more points
against the Owls, especially since
Temple had not confronted an op-
tion attack all seasonIf you don't
see it during the season, you're go-
ing to have trouble defending
against it he said. " We expected
Temple to have some difficulty with
our option going into the game
Beckish's foresight proved to be
right. The Pirates began the first of
many marches to the goal-line when
they elected to receive after winning
the coin toss. The Bucs moved from'
their own 20-yard line to the 13-yard
mark, where Heath booted a
30-yard field goal to put the Bucs on
the board for a 3-0 lead.
"That's the third (coin) toss in a
row that we've won and gone down
and scored Emory said. "I think
that is a heck of a tribute to our of-
fensive staff. We were ready to
Temple, being led by junior quarter-
back Tim Riordan, found wide
receiver Reggie Brown for two first
downs and runningback Harold
Harmon scrambled to put the Owls
on ECU's 10-yard line. Two plays
and eight yards later, Temple sat on
the one-yard line in a fourth and
goal situation, but the ECU'S Amos
Twitty came up with the big tackle
to stop Harmon from going up the
With 6:00 remaining in the first
quarter, ECU began its rally from
the one-yard line. Ingram, taking
advantage of the astro turf, used his
speed to move the Pirates to their
own 42-yard line. Byner and Baker
then moved the ball to the Temple
13. Ingram then kept and ran left in-
to the endzone to give ECU a 10-0
"When we stopped them on the
one-yard line and drove it 99-yards
to score, that was a big thing for
us Emory said. The Pirates ran 11
plays on the scoring drive to mark
their longest of the season.
Midway through the second
quarter, Heath popped a 21-yard
field goal to boost the Bucs' lead to
13-0 and set an ECU record. Heath
connected 16 field goal kicks this
season � breaking the previous
record of 14 kicks, which was set by
Pete Conaty in 1976.
Described by Emory as being
"phenomenal Heath has kicked
three field goals in one game three
times this season and booted four at
Texas Arlington, including a record-
setting 58-yard kick.
"Yeah, it was in the back of my
mind about the school record
Heath said, "but I just try not to
think about such things, as I would
probably mess up. The astroturf has
been good to me
Heath has been good to the
Pirates. The Virginia Beach native
finished with a perfect extra-point
record, making 27 of 27 attempts.
With the second half just under-
way, Heath came out and kicked a
32-yard field goal to up the Pirates

lead to 16-0 � the only points
scored in the third quarter.
Ingram, who is notorious for his
late pitches, was hit on the play
preceding Heath's kick and came
limping off the field. But the ball
was in good hands.
Junior quarterback Greg Stewart,
who started in seven games this
year, needed just nine yards to move
into fifth place as one of ECU's
leading career passers. Stewart came
in and threw two passes for 17 yards
to clinch the spot and bring his total
up to 1,466 yards.
At the beginning of the first
quarter, a bad snap cost the Pirates
a Heath field goal and a 29-yard
loss. Temple took advantage of
ECU's mistake and Riordan pushed
the Owls to ECU's33-yard line,
where Bob Clauser kicked a 50-yard
field goal to put the Owls on the
scoreboard for the first time.
With Ingram back in calling the
signals, the Pirates once again began
another scoring drive. Baker, a
High Point native, carried the ball
from Temple's 20 to the one-yard
line in five consecutive carries. In-
gram then kept, and ran up the mid-
dle to score. The Pirates now led
23-3, but the Owls were about to
score their first touchdown of the
Riordan, who completed 22 of 33
passes for 248 yards, completed five
of seven passes to put the Owls in
the endzone for a touchdown. The
Pirates now led 23-10 with 12:17 re-
maining. Temple fought off the
Pirates in their final scoring attempt
as the clock ran out.
The Pirates, led by defensive end
Jody Schulz, held the Owls to just
43 yards rushing � holding Temple
to only 10 in the second half. East
Carolina has held six of this year's
opponents to 90-yards or less
rushing. Sophomore P. J. Jordan
led the Bucs with nine tackles, while
Hal Stephens had six and seniors
Twitty, Sykes and Schulz each had
five. Schulz, Steve Hamilton and
Lawrence Brooks also had one
quarterback sack to their credit.
Schulz finished the season with 105
tackles and 10 quarterback sacks for
an 84-yard loss.
The Owls' head coach Wayne
Hardin, who has compiled a record
of 80-52-3 during his 13 years at
Temple announced last week that he
would resign from coaching after
this season. According to the coach,
the last game of his coaching career
was a hopeless case. "The game was
totally anti-ctimatic Hardin said.
"It was a no win situation for the
kids, the coaches and everybody.
The loss was no big deal and it was
just another straw in the pile of my
career. As of today, I am officials
retired. Tomorrow I start my golf-
ing career at nine o'clock
Emory, on the other hand, is
moving in the opposite direction.
After getting a two-year contract ex-
tension and finishing with a 7-4
season, the head coach has nothing
but optimism about ECU's football
future. "We're getting better
We're moving the football and our
defense is getting better.

Former Pirate Making Philly New NFL Home
Sports Editor
Dressed in a green sweat suit,
Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Zack
Valentine was back on his home turf
Saturday after a 57-day break.
The former ECU defensive end,
along with his teammates, was runn-
ing through a light work-out at
Veterans Stadium before meeting
the Cincinatti Bengals on Sunday.
But for Valentine, as well as the rest
of the NFL players, any practice
was better than none at all.
"It feels good to be back
Valentine said. "We've had four
great days of practice, and the
morale is good here. Everyone is
concentrating on winning
The Eagles played two games
before the players went on strike
against the owners, giving them a
1-1 record. Valentine, however, said
he doesn't expect the team to take
up where it left off. "We won't play
like like we did before the strike
he said, "but basically we feel as
though we'll do what we have to do
to win Unfortunately, the Eagles
didn't win. Despite a valiant at-
tempt in the second half,
Philadelphia came up short against
the Bengals after scoring a
touchdown in the last seconds of the
game to put them four points
behind, 18-14.
Valentine, who began his profes-
sional career five years ago, feels
like he has finally found a home.
After playing for the Pittsburgh
Steelers for four years, Valentine
was traded to the Baltimore Colts.
But a funny thing happened when
Valentine arrived at Baltimore's
head coach Frank Kush's office.
"Frank didn't have anything to say
to me Valentine said. "I couldn't
believe it. I waited and waited
According to Valentine, he was
suppose to meet with Kush at 1:30,
but Kush never met him. Later,
Valentine said he tried to meet with
Kush again after he came off the
practice field, but was informed by
the head coach's secretary that he
was going jogging.
Leaving Baltimore after 6 p.m
Valentine returned home in a state
of confusion. But Valentine soon
saw the light the next morning.
"When I woke up, I grabbed the
remote control for my T.V turned
it to ESPN, and who do you think
was on the T.V?
"Me. They were saying 'Do you
know how tough Frank Kush is?
When Zack Valentine didn't show
up, Kush said you're late � good-
Valentine doesn't think Kush's
toughness was the reason for his re-
jection, though. "Baltimore wanted
to pick me up later, when I would be
cheaper he said, "but I came to
Philadelphia Being a first-draft
choice, Valentine believes the Colts
wanted to wait until he was less af-
But Valentine wasn't about to
wait around, and Philadelphia's
head coach Dick Vermeil was eager
to sign him on. The Eagles con-
tacted Pittsburgh and said they were,
willing to open a slot for Valentine1
if he wanted to play. According to
Valentine, the Eagles had six
linebackers but wanted seven.
"Coach Vermeil told me he was
glad it didn't work out with
Baltimore, and that he felt like he
was getting a steal Valentine said.
So Valentine packed his bags and
headed for the "City Of Brotherly
Love, a move he hasn't regretted.
"It was a stepping stone Valen-
tine said. "Sometimes things like
that happen by nature. I feel blessed
with the ability I have and I must
admit I was stunned by what
Baltimore had done, but that's the
way football is.
"What happened happened for
the best. The situation is a lot better
for me in Philadelphia. I'm op-
timistic about my playing time here.
I'll be playing with a great team and
great coaches
Valentine was coached by Pat
Dye during his sucessful years at
ECU. Valentine racked up 165
tackles, 84 assists and six quarter-
back sacks during just three years.
Dye described Valentine as a
"coach's dream to coach
"Zack is also just an ail-
American boy, the kind little girls
and old women like he added He
has a great attitude for the game and
has desire and plays with great in-
Denkler Kicks In With 33
Right now, the burning question
is whether or not Valentine will get
any playing time with the Eagles this
year. The 1,500 players will vote to-
day on the owners' tentative agree-
ment and if they refuse the offer,
the strike will then resume.
Valentine is one of the many
athletes who are dissatisfied with the
present offer. "Personally, I didn't
think we got what we wanted he
said. "There are many things we
could improve on Valentine said
he doesn't believe the players should
control any of the owners' revenue,
which has been one stipulation
throughout the negotiation talks.
But the question still remains.
Will the players strike again?
"There is that possibility he said.
"I know that there are a lot who are
unhappy about it, but we'll just
have to wait and see
If the professional athletes do
strike, angry fans will once again
have to accept another devastating
blow. "The fans are bitter right
now Valentine said, "and in a
way they should be. But I'm bitter
at times too. We've been at this
game since junior high, then high
school and college. Any injury we
suffer can put us out for life
Meanwhile. Valentine will con-
tinue to learn the Eagles' playing
terminology and look toward the
future. "We've all just got to accept
what has happened and go on with
it he said.

Ladies Roll In Opener
Senior Forward Mary Denkler
Sports Editor
The Lady Pirates Basketball team
opened the season Monday night
with a big bang, rolling over Fayet-
teville State 91-51.
Senior forward Mary Denkler
scored 33 points against the Broncos
for a new career high and grabbed
14 rebounds to lead the Pirates to
their first victory of the season.
"They were passing the ball in
well Denkler said. "I feel like
we've come a long ways since the
scrimmage. It was just a great team
win for us
The Pirates got off to a slow start
but veterans Loraine Foster,
Darlene Chaney and Denkler
gradually set the pace in the first
half. The Bucs began pulling away
with 11:52 remaining in the first
period. The Pirates were up 13-8,
and a three-second call on the Bron-
cos gave the Bucs the ball. Denkler

fouled and 5-4 freshman guard
Delphine Mabrey made a fast break
lay-up to boost the Pirates to a
21-10 lead.
After scoring six points for the
Bucs, Chaney went down with a
hurt knee with 6:29 remaining, and
freshman forward Lisa Squirewell
made her debut as a Lady Pirate.
The Wake Forest native grabbed
two rebounds, made four points and
drew a charging foul in just a few
minutes of play.
Playing a tough man-to-man
defense, the Lady Pirates held the
Broncos back, and went ahead to
gain a 37-13 lead at the half.
In the second half, the Pirates
came out to keep a 20-point lead,
with Mabrey leading the way. The
petite Rocky Mount native finished
with four assists and five rebounds.
The Broncos were scrappy, but
the Lady Pirates performed up to
their usual fast-break expertise to
maneuver past Fayetteville, 64-31,
with 8:35 remaining, and continued
to build their lead throughout the
rest of the period.
Foster scored 18 points in the se-
cond half, while the freshman
players on the team contributed at
least four points each.
The Pirates had a 51-percent
shooting average in both halves, and
made 25 of 27 freethrows for a
percentage of 92.6.

When head football coach Ed
Emory arrived at ECU three years
ago, he quickly realized that the
team's present weight-lifting pro-
gram left much to be desired.
"We probably had enough work-
out equipment for four people
Emory said, shaking his head.
So the new coach set out to make
a few improvements, with a a new
weight facility listed at the top of the
agenda. Former ECU all-American
Lou Hallow, who owns a storage
building on 14th street, donated a
large section of of the building to be
used as East Carolina's new strength
complex center. Through the alum-
ni, Emory was also able to fill the
facility with first-rate equipment.
Emory, however, was still lacking
the most essential part of a weight-
lifting program � a strength coach.
"They (the players) spend more
time with him (strength coach) over
12 months than they do with sports
medicine and even the coaches
Emory said. "We almost thought
we'd have to give up a coaching
position for a weight coach
ECU's first weight coach was
Mike Gero, who came from Clem-
son. After a four-month stay, Gero
left and another Clemson product,
Jeff Johnson, worked with the
players for two years before leaving
to train Olympic athletes.
Following Johnson's departure,
Emory began a nationwide search
for a new strength coach. After
scanning all the way from Canada
to California, Emory selected UNC
assistant Mike Gentry.
"We felt like he was one of the
finest in the field he said. "He
was not very interested in powerlif-
ting, but seemed more interested in
an athlete's abilities, like stretching
and flexibility � the mechanics of
the body
Emory added that Gentry also
designed the team's stretching pro-
gram and stopped by periodically to
see how well the team was perform-
ing the exercises. "He's very serious
and professional he said. He's
gonna work or get out. He doesn't
have a lackadaisical attitude
According to Gentry, the players
have been more than cooperative.
"The players have worked very
hard he said. "They've never quit
on us. Sometimes they seem to en-
joy it too much he added with a
laugh. "Maybe we need to make it
Gentry said his main objective
was to help the football players
develop good, explosive power.
"We want the players to have quick
strength he said, "and they can
develop this by doing hang-cleans
and bench-pressing.
"For most power sports, we try to
to emphasize the hips, legs and
lowerback areas
Gentry said 14 players bench-
pressed more than 400 pounds this
season, with offensive guard Terry
Long hitting the 500-pound mark.
Long not only outshines his team-
mates, but probably excells above
the best college athletes in the coun-
try. Long, a 6-0, 279-pound junior
from Columbia, S.C bench-
presses 500 pounds, squatlifts 710
pounds and hang-cleans 441
"Long hasn't gotten the recogni-
tion he deserves Gentry said.
"He's probably the strongest col-
lege player in America The
strength coach added that Long can
deadlift 850 pounds � only 30
pounds off the national record.
Gentry's goal, however, is not to
train weightlifters. "We train foot-
ball players to be championship
football players he said.
"Everything comes when we win,
when we put points on the board
Gentry, who works with every
varsity team during the season, said
all of the athletes have been highly
motivated so far this season, but
Emory contended that motivation is
a two-way street. "If our football
players are motivated, then a lot of
it has to do with Mike. The guys
believe in him. There's no one else
better to make them more aware

Special Effects Wizards Create A Mystical New World
It sounds like a producer's dream. No agents
to call, no contracts to negotiate, no star
salaries to pay, no temperamental actors to
placate. In fact, no actors at all.
The Dark Crystal is the brainchild of Muppet
creator Jim Henson. Henson came up with
the idea of making a film populated only with
creatures (he has no other definition for what
he creates, noting this latest development is
neither a puppet nor a muppet) five years ago,
before E.T was even a gleam in Steven Spiel-
berg's eye. But E.T has already become a na-
tional treasure. Any film which uses me-
chanical creatures to tug at our heartstrings is
bound to be labeled a bandwagon jumper,
whether deservedly or not. Can the man who
made Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy lovers
for the Seventies and realized the Yoda for
George Lucas take on the challenge of the
lumpy, lovable Extraterrestrial?
"I never intended to spend five years mak-
ing The Dark Crystal admits Henson. He
speaks with the slow, soft deliberation of a
kindergarten teacher. "I was ready to go
sooner but Lord Lew Grade (who financed the
Muppet movies) wanted to make The Muppet
Movie first. I figured why not postpone Crystal
a little longer? I knew we could use the time
for research and development.
"The big plus about the postponement
Henson adds, laughing, "is that at least now I
can describe The Dark Crystal to people and
have them understand what I mean. Before
when I'd talk about a movie without people,
no one knew what I meant. Now I can say it's
on the order of E.T. or Yoda, only more so
Much more. E.T. and Yoda were the only
manipulated creatures interacting with a cast
of humans, while The Dark Crystal is all ma-
nipulated creatures interacting with other
manipulated creatures and special effects.
The logistics have nightmarish pro-
portions, but Henson shrugs
off the obstacles.
(L to r.):
"In the early days of movies Henson ex-
plains, "all you could do was put a man in a
gorilla suit. Now there are options. You can
create almost anything. Anything you can see
in your mind you can put on film
Yes, if you have the time, the money and
the craftspeople to do the job. The Dark Crys-

$20 million in production costs, and the tal-

so-usual false-eye experts and even rubber

says Henson, "but we did use people inside

clowns and acrobats, people who know
movement. Those who did the movements
were brought in very early and helped us
work on the creatures
Producer Gary Kurtz, whose credits include
Ixith Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Buck, in-
sists the mimes were used only about five pei
cent of the time. The rest of the movements
were accomplished through various tech-
niques: radio control, mechanical linkage. hy-
draulic engineering and even traditional pup-
petry � the old at m-in-the-sleeve trick.
Henson admits the result of all the me-
chanics was often chaos. "E.T for instance,
was often manipulated by as mans as eight
people at one time � that's just for one crea-
ture. With us it was a matter of dozens of
creatures performing at the same time. It got
pretty crowded Frank Oz, who co-directed
the movie with Henson. likened the set to
Grand Central Station. A traffic cop would
have come in handy. Video saved the da.
"Without TV monitors we couldn't have
made the movie admits Henson who first
developed the technique of watching .1 TV
monitor while working the Muppets for
Sesame Street. "The video goes through the
camera and shows us exactly what's going on.
When we are performing out primary focus is
the video monitor. Each person who manipu-
lated a creature had his own monitor. There
were even tiny monitors inside the creatures
for the mimes to see what they were doing
Henson insists The Dark Crystal is not a trad-
itional special effects movie in the sense of
Star Wars. But in another sense the entire
movie is one enormous special effect. The dif-
ference is that most of the effects in The Dark
Crystal were accomplished during the shooting
on the soundstages of EMI in I-ondon. not
added during post-production.
Kurtz contradicts Henson and says that a
great deal of the picture is accomplished
through such traditional special effects as
matte paintings, miniatures, models and even
blue screens. Most effects are created serially
� one aspect of an effect is shot on a piece of
film, then another, then another until all the
elements are finally married in optical print-
ing. Special effects experts on The Dark Crystal,

what we see in the movie was accomplished on
the set. Waterfalls, smoking orbs, flaming cas-
kets were all exploded right on the sound-
For Field and Smithies the most difficult ef-
fect was aging the Garthim monster and the
Mystics. "Usually explains Smithies, "aging is
done with dissolves. But what we wanted was
to show the process happening, so we created
a vacuum effect where the skulls collapsed
inward on command
"In the first scene of the film Smithies
says, "the I)ing Master, when telling Jen of
his task, raises from a Ixiwl of water the image
of the crystal shard and Aughard's mountain
(she's .1 sorceress). This could have lx?en done
with a series of models and dissolves, but we
sculpted the mountain from ice and shot it in
reverse, using stop frame and melting the ice
each time It ttx)k about four hours and we
had to keep the ice at freezing point because
we also had light coming up underneath

"If people go to Videodrome expect-

director David Cronenberg, re-
ferring to the infamous scene in
his last film, Scanners (about bat-
tling telepaths). "Videodrome is a
bit more radical than my past
work in terms of structure, but
my sense and choice of themes
and imagery is still intact
Cronenberg's special brand of
intense filmmaking has thus far
been witnessed in the low-budget
movies The Brood, Fast Company,
Rabid, and They Came from Within,
which featured such diverse sub-
jects as the world of race car driv-
ing and a veneral disease that
breeds parasites which drastically
alter their hosts' personalities. Vid-
eodrome marks Cronenberg's first
picture for a major studio.
The premise that so intrigued
Universal involves small time cable
TV station operator Max Renn
(James Woods) discovering a pro-
gram entitled Videodrome that is
being aired covertly via satellite. It
showcases perverse sex acts, in-
cluding sadomasochism, bon-
dage, and possibly carnal murders.
Renn is captivated bv the show,
which soon starts causing him to
have his own weird fantasies.
When Max suspects that the
broadcasts emit some type of in-
ducement to their viewers to hal-
lucinate, he becomes obsessed with
tracking down Videodrome' source.
During his investigation, Renn
meets such eccentric characters as
pop psychologist Nicki Brand
(Deborah Harry); Professor
O'Blivion (Jack Creley), who offers
vagrants a mission where thev can
watch television for free; the Pro-
fessor's daughter, Bianca (Sonja
Smits): and Barry Convex (Les
Carlson), who finally turns out to
be one of the picture's heavies.
Reims ultimate conflict begins
when he has trouble separating his
"ideodro me -in flue need illusions
from reality.
"Videodrome is not 'the film that
attacks television states Cronen-
berg. "A tag like that would be an
over-simplification, because Videod-
rome is incredibly complex. Such a
description would also make the
movie sound like a parody of TV
and maybe seem boring. Simply bv
Videodrome's nature, however, it
does touch on television's potential
for manipulation
L'niversal's original release plan
for Videodrome would have enabled
America to have already judged
whether the director's critique is
ape Videodrome was going to be dis-
tributed last October, until audi-
ences' reactions at test screenings
made the studio decide that Vid-
eodrome needed further editing.
The picture is now scheduled to

claims. "In fact, that's whv you have

Producer Marie Yates Brings the
Compelling Story of Frances Farmer
to the Screen
Jessica Lange stars as
tragic Thirties actress
Frances Farmer (far left
left). The real Frances
Farmer (above) died
in 1970.
When Hollywood makes a picture alxmt Hol-
lywood, it usually turns out to lx� an expose of
the grim, shark? side of the glitter pool. Sunset
Boulevard, The Oscat, The Big Knife, early ver-
sions of A Star Is Bom. Mommie Dearest, it's a
long list. Stags � Rain is one ol the few to
take a light-hearted look.
This can't Ik- an accidental trend.
h was a rainy day in the San Fernando Val-
k and Marie Yates, producer of the new
movie Frances, was waiting for Mick Jagger to
call. She came to the door of her dark slate
house and said, "Good things happen on rainv
days She had warm, twinklv eyes, a maroon
sweater, weathered jeans and gold slippers. It
ocurred to me, as Ms. Yates served me coffee
in a black Chinese porcelain cup, that this was
a different kind of movie producer.
Marie Yates was working a mid-level pro-
duction job at MCM six years ago when she
came across the shopworn, unsold manuscript
of William Arnold's Shadowland, which told of
the beautiful, spirited and rebellious 1930s ac-
tress Fiances Farmer and her horrifying ex-
periences with Hollywood, asvlums, elec-
uoshock and worse. Yates not onlv bought the
rights to Shadowland, she dove into the re-
search and helped edit the book. Yates man-
aged to root out the last survivors, including a
very private detective who'd held a torch for
the actress these many years. From the book
and her own interviews and research, Yates
and co-producer Jonathan Sanger put to-
gether the awesomely awful saga of Farmer's
life (the screenplay is by Eric Bergren, Christ-
opher DeV'ore and Nicholas Kazan).
Singin' in the Rain it isn't.
"She was like a Diane Keaton or a Jane
Fonda. She dressed as she liked, she was out-
spoken, she went out with the farmworkers
and picked fruit says Yates. "That's why I sav
she was about 15 or 20 years ahead of her
Fiances Farmer, though onlv 21 years old,
had just scored her biggest success, portraying
two roles in Come and Get It (1935) when she-
got fed up with Hollywood. She moved to the
New York theater world and fell in with Clif-
ford Odets and the left-oriented Group
Theatre Disappointed in them, she returned
to Hollywood.
"When she came back, she really had to eat
it Yates savs. shaking her head. "She was
making B-movies back to back and she started
to drink and take pills to keep her weight
down. She was so beautiful and so well
known, and she haled that. She started to re-
sent the fact that people were exploiting her.
They got more vindictive and gave her more
"There was a scene in a movie called Haw-
ing Gold where she had to fall in the mud.
And she had to do it something like 17 times.
She kept asking, 'Why am I doing this?' And
her director just sat there and let her fall in
the mud
Because of her associations with leftists, she
came to be labeled, wrongly, a communist.
Her troubles came in a heap. While on parole
for a drunk driving charge, Frances Farmer
got in a free-swinging fight with a hairdresser,
a woman, and broke her jaw. The hairdresser
(whom Ms. Yates tracked down in Hawaii for
interviews) pressed charges.
"The police went and broke down her door
at the Knickerbocker Hotel where she had
been sleeping in the nude Yates savs. And
thev said she had been coming on to the
police as thev broke down the door. They
lxoked her. That was the first time she was

Farmer was released into her mother's cus-
tody. Whenever thev would disagree, her
mother would threaten her with another trip
to the asylum.
Fventuallv, the threats were fulfilled. Fran-
ces Farmer spent five years in an asylum in
the state of Washington, frequently subjected
to electroshock therapy.
"1 don't know if you know about the condi-
tions of those days Yates says. "Thev ate and
slept on the Boor and did everything else on
the Moor. She was taken out of the hospital
and raped, 1 don't know how many times, by
the soldiers from a nearby Army base. The
soldiers would also take her to parties where
politicians were, and they would dress her up
and thev would rape her because she didn't
know one side from the other anv more. And
then thev would electroshock her so she
wouldn't remember any of it
Farmer eventually found her wav into the
hands of a Dr. Walter Freeman, who had the
motto "Lobotomies get them home His spe-
cialty was the trans-orbital lolxMomv, a less
dismantling process, comparatively, than a
pre-frontal. "He said people were sick in their
imaginings. By putting this instrument just
underneath their evelids, that would sever the
artist's ability to imagine. Because that's where

A Hollywood Renaissance man. Bill, now
42, achieved film success first as an actor
(Shampoo, Washington Behind Closed Doors), next
as a producer (The Sting, Taxi Drhvr), and most
recently as director ot the critically acclaimed
My Bodyguard. He has just finished shooting
Six Vkeks, his second directorial effort (star-
ring Dudley Moore and Mary Tyler Moore).
Despite all his activity in the film industry;
Bill makes ii abundantly clear that this is

It Bill sounds a little different from the ap-
ical, "show-business-is-my-life" movie pro-
ducer, it s because 20 years after breaking into

Riming in eight weeks and finish 10 weeks
later? "That was the given Bill savs. "It was a
script and Dudley and eight weeks to go. So I
called everybody who had worked for me on
Uv Bodyguard and said, "Can you ride again?
Many could, and the film was eventually com-
pleted on time and under budget.
Ii probably couldn't have been done if not
for Bill's Studio, Market Street, which includes
.1 projection room where he was able to view
dailies, and editing facilities, which were valu-
able during the final phase of production.
More importantly though, the dozen or so
offices in the compact studio were stocked
with friends and associates with whom Bill
shares a give-and-take of opinions and advice.
(The studio is also where Bill currently re-
sides; he has two teenage children who live
with his estranged wife in Brentwood.)
"If I have a janitor who goes around empty-
ing the ti.tsh. or the windows need cleaning or
the building needs painting or whatever, I'd
much rather hire somebodv who has the ul-
terior motive of being an actor or director, or
writing a script, than somebodv upon whom
none of the surrounding atmosphere will rub
off he explains.
Bill has a reputation as the man newcomers
i.m approach for a break, or at least an honest
opinion about their work. Screenplays pour in
over his transom. Almost all the films he's
produced or directed (including the endear-
ing but overlooked Hearts of the West) have
come from scripts by first-time screenwriters
without agents, and he's especially receptive to
the material, he says, when approached in a
creative wav.
though he might le able to find a higher
percentage of quality scripts by dealing with
established yvriters and agents. Bill says he'd
rather deal in volume. He's staked out his own
territory, and it enables him to stay close to
Venice without having to hang around pub-
lishing houses to find out yvhat the hot new
novels are, and to take lunches with people he
dtesn't like. "1 don't have a lot of people to
compete yvith this way he savs. "It's some-

sailing plans with his friends. It's almost Labor
Day weekend, so that means three davs ol sail-

another with Sally Field and her kids, and a
third day still open.
On the wav back. Bill muses about his im-
provisational directing style, which he de-
scribes as "a tight wire act with no net If he
keeps his head clear and his balance intact, he
can manage to avoid falling into the abyss of
bad judgments and broken budgets that he's
convinced yvould bring about a swift end to
his directing career. "I have no idea how cap-
able I yvould be of taking it on the chin he
savs, not surprisingly, since it would be a rela-
tively new experience for him. "I'm talking
about real pants-down, boo, hiss, tomatoes-at-
the-screen rejection.

playwright Sam Shepherd.

work fairly independently, which
he says is the way that he deals
with all actors.
"Lei an actor find the role in
himself Leach asserts, "and then
he'll almost be the character
Leach's main concern with his
cast was to unite them in bringing
Penzance to life in the kind of
madcap, fun-filled way that has
provoked some critics to compare
the tone of the play to the antics of
Monty Pvthon and the Marx
"Pirates' humor comes from
showing a world of realitv askew
states Leach. "It would have leen
a mistake for me to think of Pen-
zance in any conventional way. For
example, at the time that this story-
takes place, there were no pirates
any more. Consequent I v. anyone
claiming to lie a pirate would be

To enhance Pirates' thematic de-
lights with celluloid magic. Leach
enlisted the services of special ef-
fects wizard Brian Johnson, who
won an Oscar for The Empire
Strikes Back and also worked on
Dragonslayer, Alien and Space: 1999.
(Johnson's tricks were added to
live action footage shot by
cinematogiapher extraordinaire
Douglas Raiders of the Lost Ark
The Pirates of Penzance's visual
thrills weren't only generated
technically. The picture contains
the wildest action scenes this side
of Steven Spiellerg.
"Pirates gets so wild that a lot of
people think that we did a lot of
improvised tumbling and bumbl-
ing says Tony Azito, "but we
didn't. There couldn't be improvis-
ing with everybody moving
around like that. There would

choreographer) is a perfectionist.
.4 of the fight sequences for the
stage play were planned. For the
movie, they had to be even more
No matter how proficient Azito
and company were, a potential
danger for Pirates is that
moviegoers might consider the
story an antique that couldn't pos-
sibly please a 1980s audience.
"We treated Penzance as a new
work � something living, rather
than as something to Ik? done with
reverence toward the dead. We
approached the production from
the script and music, rather than
from the tradition of how The Pi-
rates of Penzance 'ought' to be done
Leach's approach worked on
Broadway, where Pirates won 3
Tony Awards (for Best Revival,
Best Director and Kevin Kline), 2
OBIE Awards, 5 Drama Desk
Awards and the Outer Critics Cir-
cle Award for Best Musical. The
director and his associates are ob-
viously gambling that this Febru-
ary 18, filmgoers will also react posi-
tively to a movie whose stylized
whimsy could present a refreshing
relief from the world's ubiquitous
everyday hassles.
"The Pirates of Penzance" Leach
admits, "presents a world without
cvnicism. There's not one charac-

Sting II

sponsible for Colors' death.
Jake Hooker, now down to his
last dollar due to bad investments,
and Fargo Condorff, fresh from a
two-year stay in the Florida State
Penitentiary "on a bum rap de-
cide to get revenge on Macalinski.
They scheme to haye Hooker pose
as a champion lx)xer, not realizing
that Lonnegan is aware of their
every move, determined to kill
them in retribution for conning
him a decade earlier.
Ward's script also introduces a
beautiful con woman named Ver-
onica (Teri Can), who uses the
alias Countess Veronique. A ro-
mance develops between Veronica
and Hooker, with the latter ignor-
ant that the "Countess" has some
sort of mysterious tie to Lonne-
gan. Flelping the gangster is Big
Apple police detective Francis X.
Bushman (Val Avery), whom
Hooker first meets when he steals
a railroad ticket from him.
"Sting II is inspired and is an ex-
pansion of the first Sting, rather
than a continuation asserts di-
rector Kagan. "Our Fargo Gon-
dorff and Jake Hooker are based
on two very famous real-life con
men who are totally different
from the original two characters.
Sting II also has more comedy and
the nature of the con is more in-
triguing than in Sing . In this pic-
ture, the con men themselves get
Kagan feels that a director
should try to put together a cast
that is friendly to one another. He
even went so far as to fly Oliver
Reed (who inherits the part of
Lonnegan from the late Robert
Shaw) in from London for a few
days so that he could get ac-
quainted with the picture's ensem
ble one month before the En-
glishman had to show up for film-
ing. During that visit, Oliver
clowned around by doing hand-
springs and lewd gestures off-
camera while the other actors were
filming their scenes. At one point,
Reed peeled off his shirt and
jumped in front of the camera,
dancing around the cast members.
"That's the way he is without hav-
ing a drink comments Jackie
Cleason, grinning.
Not all of Sting 's unplanned
moments were as wild as Reed's
stunts. When the film was lensing
at Los Angeles' posh Rex restau-
rant � posing as "The Blue J'
nightclub � famed bandleader
trumpeteer Harry James (who
plays himself) and a few of Sting
ITs other musicians treated the
crew to an impromptu concert.
The event was made even more
memorable when Jeremy Paul
Kagan joined the group on
To help achieve a sense of pleas-
ant illusion, the artists responsible
for Sting 's look often opted to
"suggest" the 1940s, instead of re-
creating the era in exact detail.
"We tried to make the clothing
in Sting II capture the essence of
the period, rather than actually
documenting it confirms cos-
tume designer Burton Miller.
One design element that couldn't
be merely suggested: men's hair-
cuts. All of Sting ITs male actors
had to get 1940s coiffures.
"When that was done Mac
Davis recalls, "nobodv recognized
me. When I came home after the
haircut, mv dog � a big old
bloodhound � tried to tear me up.
L'ntil he smelled me, he didn't
know who I was
Davis' pursuit of realitv for his
role included doing his own stunts
during Stmg ITs climactic boxing
"I got banged up reveals
Davis. "I was trying to make a slow
motion shot � there's a point in
the fight where Jake gets knocked
down � and I went flying through
the air, landed on mv rib cage, and
broke a rib: it looked terrific! It
was mv own fault, though. I was
Some media pundits have sur-
mised that Davis went to such
lengths to help offset a compari-
son between himself and his prog-
enitor as Hooker, Robert Redford.
When told that some people will
view his performance in Redford's
shadow, Davis doesn't seem
bothered, apparently believing
that he's not in competition with
the famous star. Mac considers
Sting II as another chance to ex-
pand his thespian abilities, dis-
played twice before in Xorth Dallas
Forty and Cheaper to Keep Her.
"I'm basically a songwriter who
sings and an entertainer who acts,
quote, unquote. Acting is a chal-
lenge because it's something I re-
ally don't have that much experi-
ence at. Film acting is hard work
It's long hours and very repetiti
ous, but I love it. Acting is a
chance to jump out of my skin and
be someone else for a change.
Who hasn't wanted to do that once
in a while?"
Inevitably, the entire Stmg sequel
will be pitted against its predeces-
sor. Jeremy Paul Kagan insists that
his picture can sustain the test, as
long as people care about Stmg ITs
"I think that they will states the
director. "Even though all of the
characters in Sting II survive by ly-
ing, there's a backstage' area
where thev don't lie. That's where I
feel audiences will learn to care
about these people. At least, what's
important to me is the truth in
people's lives

Cronenberg, is a tremendously
vital p.ti I of the movie. Videodrome
was written so that its hallucinat-
ory aspects actually lead to one of
the film's major revelations. At the
same time, I'd hate for people to
feel that Videodrome is solely an ef-
fects picture. Its first half hour
doesn't have any effects. Videod- ;
tome's other elements � acting and
story � are good enough to stand
on their own. If nothing else, 1
think that the least people will sav
is that Videodrome 'is an interesting
movie. As a result. I think that its
market can be broader than that
of a film that only highlights spe-
cial effects.
"Obviously the director adds, j
"there'll be some people who might
not want to sit through Videod- j

though, I don't think that will be l
the case. Effects freaks still want

if they don't always realize it.
