Blast Kills One Student, Injures 12
From Siaff �nd � uc Rtpom
A pre-dawn explosion Wednesday at the
Village Green apartment complex left one ECU
student dead and 12 injured, one critically.
Officials on the scene speculated that the ex-
plosion, which occurred at about 5:45 a.m
was caused when a liquid propane gas tank, us-
ed to fuel dryers in a basement laundry room,
ignited and exploded.
ECU drama student David Martin, 21, of
Raleigh, was killed instantly, and six ECU
students have been admitted to Pitt County
Memorial Hospital. Martin's body was found
in the complex's swimming pool.
One resident, ECU business student Richard
Seabolt, is listed in critical condition after
undergoing surgery' for head and liver injuries.
Seabolt was Martin's roomate.
Students Michael Strother, Alan Wilkins,
Gary Elliot and Hank Redicker are listed in
stable condition. Scott Cumby is in guarded
condition. John Filton, Anna Watts, William
Chadwick, Cynthia Smith, Melanie Tetterton
and David Tetter were treated and released.
The blast destroyed 10 apartments in the
complex that rents 75 percent of its space to
ECU students.
Debris was scattered over a 300-square-yard
area, with pieces of clothing and insulation
hanging from nearby trees. According to one of
the first people on the scene, one girl was ac-
tually blown into a tree.
Many of the injured were trapped for up to
three hours under mountains of debris.
Several ECU students who lived in the com-
plex assisted in helping the injured. Greenville
Rescue Squad members and police arrived 10 to
15 minutes after the blast. Joe Calder, director
of ECU Public Safety, also arrived at Village
Green early.
Rescue efforts were hampered by darkness
and high concentrations of gas in the at-
mosphere.
"I thought it was either a bomb or a tor-
nado said ECU geology student Rick Mur-
ray. "We got up and ran downstairs as fast as
we could. We saw two girls, one standing and
one laying down. They were on the third floor
but it was supposed to be where the second
floor was Murray and his roomate Stuart
Sloan climbed up the side of a collapsed roof
and carried the women to safety.
Both Murray and his roomate Sloan claimed
they could smell gas as they walked through the
rubble. Sloan said that gas "was always a con-
cern, but we were more concerned about getting
people out as quickly as possible. We could
hear people screaming from underneath (the
rubble). That's what was so bad, you could
hear them screaming but you couldn't get to
them to help
Murray and Sloan, who have lived at Village
Green since May, seemed convinced that gas
caused the blast. The dryers in the laundry
room of the apartment complex were run by
gas.
As the day wore on, residents joined close to
100 rescue workers in an effort to remove the
debris. The workers carefully picked through
the rubble in case more people were buried
under the debris.
Special equipment, including a large crane,
was used to clear the debris as quickly as possi-
ble to free those who were trapped. Large
blocks of concrete and twisted metal were scat-
tered everywhere. Electric saws were used to cut
through the walls, floors and ceilings. The last
injured person was freed at about 9 a.m.
Greenville Fire Rescue Department Chief
Jenness Allen supervised most of the rescue
operations. Allen speculated that the explosion
was caused by gas, but he was uncertain as to
what caused and ignited the blast. Allen said he
was certain all people in the building had been
accounted for by noon.
Allen praised his staff for their efforts. "I
was just totally overwhelmed by the way my
men handled it Allen said. "We had the men
on the job and did what was expected Allen
said there were 60 workers on the scene within
30 minutes of the explosion.
Allen said that additional rescue units from
Winterville, Eastern Pines and Farmville came
to the blast scene to aid the three units from
Greenville.
Greenville Fire Marshall Jerr McLawhorn
agreed with Allen that the blast was probably
caused from a gas explosionOur speculation

Residents Try To Pick Up Pieces
Explosion Devastates A rea
Volunteers as well as residents helped rescue units in clean up and salvage
efforts at the Village Green Apartments explosion yesterday. V ictims of
the blast found most of their belongings destroyed in the early morning
disaster.
By PATRICK O'NEILL
Sufi Writer
Three hours after the explosion,
several groups of students could
be seen carrying their belongings
to waiting cars. Dozens of others
just stood and stared as lines of
rescue workers and volunteers dug
through the rubble searching for
additional bodies.
By 10 a.m reporters were clim-
bing through the rubble attemp-
ting to get interviews with rescue
workers, city officials and apart-
ment residents. One Village Green
resident after another recounted
the details of the alleged gas ex-
plosion that killed one ECU stu-
dent and injured at least a dozen
others.
Everywhere you walked the
ground was littered with the per-
sonal effects of the people who
only hours before were soundly
asleep in their beds. Text books,
picture frames, articles of clothing
and mangled bicycles and ap-
pliances were strewn everywhere.
Several helicopters from out-of-
town television stations hovered
overhead, filming the disaster.
Pieces of clothing hung from the
limbs of trees several hundred feet
away. Gauze bandages stained
with blood could be seen on the
ground.
Rick Murray, an ECU geology
student, was one of the first peo-
ple on the scene after the blast. He
and his roommate, Stuart Sloan,
assisted several injured people.
Both Murray's and Sloan's
parents had already arrived from
out of town as had dozens of
other concerned parents who had
heard the news of the explosion
from early morning news reports.
Murray was patiently telling
and re-telling reporters his ac-
count of what had happened, of
how he had lifted the body of
ECU student David Martin out of
the complex's swimming pool.
Martin's body had been blown
�bout 50 feet from the force of the
explosion and landed in the pool.
The magnitude of the explosion
and the subsequent damage to the
complex made people on the scene
wonder how so many people had
survived. "We were the luckiest
ones said industrial technology
student Jim Gaskill. "We're
alive
Gaskill, 20, was asleep when the
explosion occured in his building.
"I thought I was having a
nightmare heard a huge, huge
explosion (and) the bed fell about
10 feet to the floor below us. Both
Gaskill and his girlfriend, Leslie
Harrell, realized that their floor
had collapsed. The floor trapped
the women in the apartment
below them.
"I just woke up and felt
everything falling on me Harrel
said. "I thought I was dreaming
it. We were just stuck there, it was
all on top of us
Harrell said she could hear a
woman's voice crying "Help me.
help me" from beneath the rub-
ble. "She got out; she was
hysterical. Her roommate was
hurt real bad Harrell said.
Murray said that the impact of
the blast sent pieces of glass flying
all over his bed. "It rolled me. I
thought it was either a bomb or a
tornado
Murray pointed to several holes
in his bedroom door that had been
caused by pieces of glass that had
imbedded in them. "If I'd a been
standing up it (glass) would have
stuck in me he added.
Sloan said he was awakened by
a "shattering boom" thai left him
in kind of daze. "I jumped up out
of bed and cut my foot on a piece
of glass that had blown in my
room
"Everybody was screaming and
going wild said ECU general
college student Michael l.iddy.
"People were running all over the
place
"I didn't hear the explosion
said Frank Gargano, who wa-
awakened when his bedroom door
blew off its hinges and landed on
his bed.
Another person on the scene
said she saw others helping one of
the injured people down from a
tree where she had landed follow-
ing the blast.
"The windows fell in all our
rooms said ECU student Geri
Dunn. "The whole (window)
frame fell into our living room

student John Felton was injured
in the blast. He was treated at Pitt

To Residents Left Homeless
Professor Pursues Illegal Parkers;
Topsiders, Tenacity Are Weapons
GAINESVILLE, FL (CPS) �
A University of Florida professor
has been convicted of assault with
a deadly Topsider-style shoe.
English Professor Julian Smith
readily admitted in court last week
that he angrily raised his shoe and
kicked a van illegally parked at
the Florida-Auburn football game
last fall.
But Smith says he did it only
after being "kidnapped" by the
family that owned the van, and
then was ignored by campus
police who refused to give the
family a parking ticket.
Smith, a former campus park-
ing committee member who's
been dubbed "The car-kicking
prof" for his vigilante enforce-
ment of traffic regulations, has
walked over, laid under and
struck illegally parked vehicles

before.
In September, he parked
himself under a yellow Gremlin a
student had left on a campus
sidewalk to wash. Smith refused
to move until an officer gave the
student a $5 ticket.
In November, Smith stood in
front of freshman Richard Sohn's
car parked on a sidewalk when
Sohn tried to move it. When the
prof refused to move, Sohn drove
forward, knocking Smith onto the
car's hood.
And in October, Smith accosted
Ken Tarvin, Tarvin's family and
several friends as they parked Tar-
vin's van on a grassy part of the
campus to go to a Florida-Auburn
game.
Smith told them they were
parked illegally, but they ignored
him and proceeded to the game.
When they returned several
hours later and Tarvin opened the
van's door, however, Smith ap-
peared and jumped inside, hugg-
ing one of the seats tightly.
"He told me I was parked il-
legally, and that he had reported it
to the police, and was waiting for
them to arrive Tarvin told the
court last week.
But when Tarvin and company
decided to drive away with the
professor in tow, "He started
screaming I was kidnapping
him Tarvin testified. "He open-
ed up the window and threw out a
note. A number of students had
gathered, and he was trying to tell
them that I was kidnapping him
Tarvin drove only a few blocks
before spotting Gainesville Police
Lt. Ray Willis. He stopped and
watched as Willis and several
other officers who pulled up im-
plored Smith to get out of the van.
Smith refused unless the of-
ficers ticketed the van.
Tarvin, his son and two friends
then physically yanked Smith
from the van, sending him reeling
into a passing bicyclist.
Smith then angrily charged the
van, kicked in its hind panel, and
was promptly arrested.
"Was this the shoe 1 was wear-
ing?" Smith, who acted as his
own attorney, asked Willis
dramatically at the trial as he held
up a boat shoe. Willis replied he
didn't remember.
Smith explained, "The van was
illegally parked, and I made every
effort to get the university police
to ticket it. The officer gave the
impression he was finished with
the situation
On the contrary. Assistant State
Attorney Anne Kennedy says
Willis had "bent over backwards
to accommodate Mr. Smith's
known peculiarities
Circuit Court Judge Miller
Lang agreed, finding Smith guilty
to malicious mischief and criminal
trespassing. Sentencing, which
could bring Smith up to 120 days
in jail and $1000 in fines, is
scheduled for the end of
February.

Students who have lost their
homes and belongings because of
the early morning explosion that
destroyed part of the Village
Green apartment complex on 10th
Street are getting help from ECU
administrators.
Vice Chancellor for Student
Life Elmer P. Meyer said
"anything and everything" the
school can do is being done. He
said a list of the students who are
injured and a list of those who are
homeless has been compiled and
phoned in to each department.
The explosion, which killed one
student and injured 12, occurred
at 5:43 Wednesday morning.
James B. Mallory, associate
dean of judiciary, said he was
notified by campus security of the
accident. He and assistant direc-
tor of public safety Francis Ed-
dings went immediately to Village
Green and assisted students who
were affected by the explosion.
Mallory and Eddings also went
to the hospital to help assist in
identifying the injured. Mallory
said he had received calls from
parents and friends of students
who lived in Village Green.
Dorm rooms are available as
temporary or permanent living
quarters for those students left
homeless, according to Dan K.
Wooten, housing director. He
said that no one affected by the
explosion has requested a room
yet.
Meyer said students who lived
in Village Green and did not at-
tend class Wednesdav were excus-
ed. He said arrangement could
also be made for the injured
students to preregister at a later
date.
Meyer said he has seen several
parents of students who were in-
volved in the explosion. The of-
fice of Academic Affairs
reinterated Meyer's statement that
everything possible would be done
for the students who lived at
Village Green concerning classes
and school work.
Mallory said the explosion was
the worst student tragedy in
Greenville in the 30 years he has
been at ECU.
Reggie Fountain, owner of
Village Green, said he would help
to find housing for the residents
who lost their apartments.
Firefighters and rescuers from the GreenviUe area were aided by rescue units from Winterville. Easter

is that it was an LP-gas explosion within the
laundry room, but that's purely speculation
McLawhorn said. -
McLawhorn said he would assist other ex-
perts, including the SBI specialists and people
from the LP-gas division in the Department of
Agriculture, in their efforts to determine the
cause of the blast. The investigation of the
cause is expected to take at least a couple of
weeks. McLawhorn said he did not believe
"foul play" was responsible for the explosion.
R.M. Fountain and Sam McConkey, co-
owners of the Village Green Apartments, said
attempts are being made through their rental
offices to relocate some of the several dozen
people who will be left homeless because of the
blast. McConkey said people would be
relocated on a "first come first-serve basis" to
other vacant apartments in the area.
Fountain said he was not qualified to
speculate on the cause of the explosion until he
sees the official reports of the police and fire
departments.
Besides desroying a large section of one
building, the blast also shattered hundreds of
windows and blew doors off hinges in adjacent
apartments. Several cars were also heavily
damaged. "I've lost everything said ECU
Business student Leslie Harrell. "I have no
clothes. My pocket book, the keys to my car �
everything (is) gone
Harrell's apartment was destroyed in the
blast. She escaped serious injury even though
the floor of her apartment collapsed, depositing
her and her bed on the floor below. "I don't
have any insurance Harrell said. "I don't
know what's going to happen; I don't know
where I can stay
Fountain said he was not prepared to answer
any questions regarding the liability insurance
for the victims of the explosion.
Clean-up efforts following the blast are ex-
pected to take several days. At present, elec-
tricity in all the apartments has been cut off.
One section, the part that took the brunt of the
blast, has been permanently condemned. Two
other sections have been condemned until
repairs are made.

Allison said the

"We knew people

Collins also said
there was a thick smell
of gas in the air.
"You could smell it
real strong. People
were yelling not to

Tragedy
Rescue Effort Commendable
It has often been said that even
the direst tragedy brings people
closer together, that it tears down
the proverbial facades that stand
between us and encourages co-
operation and understanding.
Well, in recent days, tragedy has
eertainlv found a home in Green-
ville.
Tragedy in the form of an
unheralded gas explosion, an ex-
plosion which left one ECU stu-
dent, David Martin, dead;
another, Richard Seabolt, critical-
lv wounded; and 11 others injured
in varying degrees.
� � �
Although right now, those
students involved in the explosion
would surely like to put this most
terrible tragedy behind them, it
would certainly be "tragic" should
we emerge from the rubble and
forget.
Nevertheless, at times like these,
words are rendered useless, and to
attempt a tribunal in these short
lines could never do justice to the
tragedy those students have suf-
fered .
But if, indeed, there is a light at
the end of the Village Green tun-
nel, then surely it is the tremen-
dous co-operative effort which has
resulted.
Not only professionals � rescue
squad workers, firemen and police
officers � but concerned students
and citizens alike have rallied their
collective efforts to the rescue and
recovery causes.
Reports from the scene indicated
that police, fire and rescue squads
arrived at Village Green within
minutes of the blast and that their
level-headed actions were com-
mendable.
Likewise, several students who
escaped the blast helped the rescue
teams clear the rubble and move
their fellow tenants to safety. Their
quick thinking and calm response
� their heroism � also deserves
praise much more praise than
can be conveyed on paper.
Nevertheless, we commend you.
But apart from the terrible
trauma which stems inherently
from an accidental death of this
nature, there still exists a very real
problem facing the remaining
tenants of the destroyed building:
housing. Many of their apartments
were destroyed by the blast; many
lost most, if not all, of their
belongings.
Here, too, commendable efforts
are already being made. R. M.
Fountain and Sam McConkey, co-
owners the Village Green Apart-
ments, said that some of those left
homeless will be housed in open
apartments in the area. "We're do-
ing everything we can to help
relocate (people) through our ren-
tal office Fountain said.
All commendations aside,
however, concern has arisen that
some of the students affected by
the blast are unaware of what
awaits them. Many students voiced
their own concern about losing
their possessions permanently.
Not to point the finger of fault
in any direction, and knowing full
well that any prospective recourse
of this nature necessitates the pro-
dding of infinite legal channels �
nevertheless, those students who
have lost the majority of their per-
sonal belongings must be assured
of their recovery. It would seem
that in a case like this, accidental
as it may be, the owners of Village
Green are responsible � by
whatever means necessary � to
replenish the property lost andor
damaged.
Such recovery, however, awaits
to be seen.
Tragedy has, indeed, struck
Greenville full force. But especially
now, it is at least comforting to
know that those we entrust with
our safety are worthy of that trust.
To the students and families af-
fected by the terrible explosion at
Village Green � our sincere con-
dolences
And to all those whose co-
operative rescue efforts helped
clear the rubble, helped stay the
tragedy � our commendation.

nVMK MS RECRUITING OWERCLPSSMEN IS
SETTING OUT OF HAND,w
Repaving 'Tobacco Road'
By PAT O'NEILL
Tobacco. You better have a smile on
your face when you mention that word
around these parts, because nobody, but
nobody, in eastern North Carolina is
supposed to criticize the "sacred weed
I've lived in Greenville for almost six
years, but it didn't take me long to
realize that growing tobacco means big
bucks to Pitt County residents. 1 also
found out that in this neck of the woods,
one must learn the proper etiquette for
discussing the subject of tobacco.
For instance, it is imperative for us to
follow the line of the cigarette manufac-
turers as they try to convince us that
smoking is the most wholesome thing
since mother's milk. Despite years of
documentated medical information pro-
ving the contrary, North Carolina politi-
cians and the tobacco industry still claim
smoking is not dangerous.
U.S. Surgeon General Dr. C. Everett
Koop called cigarette smoking "the
chief, single, unavoidable cause of death
in our society Other findings indicate
that smoking contributes to more than
300,000 deaths a year from cancer, heart
disease and respiratory ailments. Fur-
ther, smoking-related health problems
cost Americans more than $13 billion a
year in medical bills.
These facts speak for themselves or
do they? Well, not exactly. Anytime
another mdical study is released cor-
relating smoking with health problems,
the public is once again forced to hear
the empty rhetoric of those who worship
the deadly weed.
I know as well as anyone else that the
tobacco industry represents the bread
and butter of more than 300,000 North
Carolinians. Whether I like it or not,
this is fact. But another, perhaps more
important, fact is that cigarette smoking
kills people. Not only does it kill them,
but it costs "all of us" millions and
millions of dollars in medical costs. In
the long run, much of the financial
burden of high medical costs funnels
down to us in the form of higher-priced
medical insurance and more taxes.
Thousands more die as a result of fires
caused by lit cigarettes.
Another often overlooked dimension
regarding the dangers of smoking is the
tremendous suffering and despair that
both the victims and their loved one
must endure. Each year, thousands of
families go through the pain of watching
a loed one perish slowly from cancer or
some other smoking-related disease If
death happen to strike the breadwinner,
it again can have a direct impact or.
of us who must foot the bill for the fami-
ly's survival.
The solution of these problems is not
simple, but obviously, something must
be done. Even our own governor, who
once called for Dr. Koop's resignation.
doesn't smoke.
Perhaps the recent suggestions tha:
alternate cash crops, such as asparagu-
or rubber, be grown by N.C. farmers :
one possible solution. I am not in favor
of the federal government doing awav
with its anti-smoking campaigns. How
many deaths will n take for North
Carolinians to come out of their
cigarette-smoke clouds and realize that
we're all participating in a deadly
business?
B.C. Jail To Have Extra Tenant Next Week
Resident Radical Takes Bars Over Beach
By BOB MORGAN
Once again, The East Carolinian's il-
lustrious roving radical Mr. Patrick
O'Neill has found himself on the wrong
side of the law out of his profound sense
of social duty. The act: blocking an en-
trance to the State Department in
Washington. The charge: tresspassing.
The plea: innocent. The verdict: guilty.
And finally, the sentence: O'Neill must
spend the week of spring break locked
up in a Washington cell.
This is how O'Neill has chosen to
voice his complaint against U.S. policy
in the El Salvadoran civil war, a war bet-
ween Marxist rebels and U.Sbacked
government troops. I'm all for standing
up for what one believes in, but really
now, is spring break behind bars worth
it? How am I supposed to enjoy
Daytona Beach knowing that one of my
acquaintances is not even able to see the
sun?
At a time when our judicial system is
overloaded with cases and our jails with
criminals, O'Neill and others are still
choosing to publicize their protests by
further jamming the system and making
a mockery of its process. It is time for
these people to realize this type of civil
disobedience only falls on deaf ears. If
you can write a best-seller or perhaps
win 11 Oscar nominations, then maybe
we'll listen.
Going to jail is not the way to produce
constructive action for this cause. For
example, it seems to me that the week-
long vacation could be well spent
"mobilizing the masses" for a peace
march on the beaches of Fort Lauder-
dale. Or better yet, why not send the
Greenville Peace Committee to E!
Salvador to get a first-hand account o:
the action.
The point is that time in jail is time
and effort wasted away. Even if Patrick
O'Neill spends the rest of his life behind
bars, the rebels will continue to kill; the
government will continue to kill, and the
people of El Salvador will continue to
suffer.
Please, Patrick, don't make it a habit
to let your energies and efforts go sup-
pressed right alongside common
criminals. At least when you are in jail, I
hope the Latin Americans will take a lit-
tle time out of their war to appreciate
your stand for the cause of peace in their
part of the world. Unfortunately. I
doubt that they will return the favor.
Campus Forum
Ed. Should Zap Crap
It is truly unfortunate when the
editor(s) of a newspaper has to stoop
so low as to put his two cents worth of
information in print everytime he
disagrees with someone else's opinion.
Such has been the case of late on the
editorial page of The East Carolinian.
It seems that the editor has chosen to
respond to several letters (and even to
an opinion column) with lengthy, ar-
rogant editor's notes and counter-
points.
It's a shame that your editor is so in-
secure about his own opinions that he
chooses to violate the ethics of his posi-
tion whenever he feels threatened by
the opinions of another.
Last Thursday's East Carolinian was
a perfect example of his editorial ar-
rogance. Under the guise of an Editor's
note, it stated: "Perhaps I don't speak
for a majority of readers � certainly,
at least, a large minority � but I think
the arguments coming from both sides
of Greenville's iron curtain (whatever
that means) are getting stale
Where did your editor get his infor-
mation? Did he poll students to come
to this wild conclusion? 1 am a fre-
quent reader of The East Carolinian,
and I enjoy reading the "varied" view-
points of your editorial writers
"Perhaps 1 don't speak for a majority
of readers � certainly, at least, a large
minority � but I think that your editor
should discontinue his crybaby tactics
and let others express their viewpoints
without having to read his crap too

Students Ask For Tax Hikes To Aid Schools
An in- en mon.r r.l� � r �
CPS An ,�.
ceasing number of
Udenl and
educators are taking
lJP what may be the
m�sl unpopular cause
ln 'he country: tax in-
creases .
'n a number of
Places throughout the
1 n'ted States, they're
mounting lobbying
campaigns to raise
slate and local taxes
Jo help restore state
Ending of higher
education.
Twenty-four states
ir 1Q82 had to slash
'heir college budgets
during the middle of
the year because the
recession had driven
so many people out of
work that tax receipts
had declined
significantly.
The people who re-
mained employed,
moreover, paid less to
the states in taxes
because of the reces-
sion and lowered tax
rates from the "tax
revolts" of 1978-80.
Those "revolts"
began with Proposi-
tion 13 in California.
Ironically, it was in
California that
students first started
working for tax in-
creases recently.
California students
are lobbying at the
state capitol and stag-
ing rallies at campuses
around the state in
support of a number
of proposed tax hikes.
In Kansas, college
students are backing a
newly-proposed
severance tax on the
oil and gas industry,
which they hope will
fill depleted state cof-
fers and stop the year-
ly slashes in state
higher education ap-
propriations.
Students in
Michigan and Illinois
are also supporting
various "revenue
enhancement
measures to help plug
the holes in their sink-
ing state treasuries.
And student
associations in Ohio
and Pennsylvania,
among others, are
considering taking
similar actions on tax
increase proposals.
"I think you could
definitely call it a
trend says Bob
Bingamam, project
director of the State
Student Association
in Washington, D.C.
For students,
Bingamam says, it's a
question of survival:
either boost state
revenues through tax
increases, or watch
higher education
slowly deteriorate or
even disappear. Il-
linois, for example, is
considering closing
some of the its state
campuses.
"Students realize
that they need increas-
ed state revenues so
that more money can
go to fund higher
education he says.
"Things look pretty
grim in California"
without some sort of
help for the state
budget, says Melinda
Lehman, lobbyist for
the California State
Student Association,
a statewide coalition
of student govern-
ments.
To compensate for
this year's $1.5 to $2
billion deficit,
California has cut
nearly $24 million out
of its state college
budget while pushing
student fees up by $64
a semester.
"And next year
looks even more
devastating
Lehman says. Stu-
dent fees might get up
as much as $230 for
1983-84 without some
changes in the state
budget picture.
Lehman's group
therefore is suppor-
ting a proposed tax on
cigarettes and a new
oil severance tax.
"I suppose suppor-
ting these increases
might make us un-
popular with some
People, she
acknowledges. "But
there isn't much
choice
Michigan students
also realize they're
backing an unpopular
1.75 percent state in-
come tax increase, but
student leaders say it's
the best way to
counter a projected
$25 million cut in col-
lege funding if the tax
increase doesn't pass.
Since January, Il-

reps and state politi
cians to push for in-
creases in state in-
come, gas and liquor
taxes.
Student govern-
ments at campuses
around the state of-
ficially have endorsed
the tax hikes.
"The governor
(James Thompson)
hasn't made definite
allocations for where
the money from the
tax increases would
go points out Paul
Lingenfelter. deputy
director for fiscal af-
fairs for the Illinois
Board of Higher
Education.
"But we do know
one thing: higher
education will get an
automatic 10 percent
funding reduction if
nothing happens
Students officials at
the University of Il-
linois see the tax in-
creases from a similar
do-or-die perspective,
savs student rep Brad
Goodrich.
"We just drafted a
statement supporting
the need for increaed
state revenues he
says. "The student
government definitely
supports a state tax

Spring Break
Those two tantalizing words mean only one thing:
FLORIDA.
The standard Florida Trek on a student budget
features a Chevette crammed with two to six palefac-
ed partiers and their luggage en route to a Motel 6 in
Daytona Beach. Or five to eight packed in a Pinto
Wagon heading for a Best Western in Lauderdale, or
a dozen or more oblivious-to-pressure types stacked
side by side in a Dodge van barreling towards a trailer
park outside the gates of the Magic Kingdom. Anv
one of these veteran Florida vacationers can offer
tidbits of advice or capsule critiques on where to go
and what to do in the standard hot spots, and with
very little proddding, they will: Clearwater's sleepy.
Jax Beach smells funny. The Keys are outrageous,
but so far away! Miami's dangerous. And the best
bars are in Daytona, or Cocoa, or Boca, or Coral
Gables, or Lauderdale. of course. It's the middle of
March, a 42-degree drizzle in hitting North Carolina,
and you can almost feel a sunburned glow on your
shoulderblades.
But maybe you've had enough of traffic jams,
noisy crowds, and long lines just getting this far in
the school year. Or maybe the kid next to you in the
van last year threw up in one of the Playmate coolers
just as you got into Georgia, and then a state trooper
stopped your girlfriend, the driver, and gave her a
$35 ticket for speeding, and she made everyone in the
van chip in. And it was so cold in Lauderdale you
wound up spending a week's worth of money in 48
hours because you had to hang out in the bars instead
of on the beach. And it took forever to get there.
If the Florida ritual is still in your blood, you
might be ready for a different spring break adven
ture. Does a canoe trip through a real palmetto palm
forest appeal to vou more than a crowded boat ride
through A Small Small World, all those creepy dolls?
Would a dive in a maddeningly blue. 69 degrees
freshwater spring substitute for a toe-dip in the
reddish-green, 53 degree breakers at Daytona Beach"1
Could you live without seeing the Weekie Wachee
mermaids oi the Marineland porpoises if you could
aim your Canon at Florida cooter sunning themselves
on logs in the middle of the Santa Fe River? Eer
seen an armadillo? Or a cypress knee?
Spending spring break in North Central Florida
might intrigue you if you're suitably adventurous.
North Central Florida is loosely bounded by Osceola
National Forest to the north (about 40 miles from
Jacksonville) and Benson Junction, about 20 miles
from Orlando, where the St. Johns River detours
through I akes Monroe and Harney. to the south In
between lies a maze of canoe trails, jungle) scenery,
and semitropical campsites largely ignored b the
vacationing crowds from the North
You're almost sold? You'll need a good map and a
dependablv waterproof tent, and sturdy clothes for
North Central Florida's predictably unpredictable
weather. Temperatures can skitter from the .hilly
thirties to the sweaty eighties in March, so you'll
want to be prepared for anything. (The Florida max
im is 'if vou don't like the weather - wait a few

Peace Committee Members Not 'Commies'
Bv PATRICK O'NEILL
Miff Wnirt
Last Friday night there were 17 people sitting
around the dinner table at the home of Carroll and
Edith Webber. Considering that the Webber's
children are grown and living away from home, one
might wonder why the middle aged couple had so
many dinner guests. The answer is simple � for the
last 12 years or so Carroll and Edith have been the
backbone of the Greenville Peace Committee which
meets in their home weekly.
Throughout the years hundreds of ECU students
have passed through the Webber's lives by showing
up at the GPC's weekly gatherings. Many have join-
ed them for demonstrations at the two US Post Of-
fices in town. Other times the GPC travels as a group
to larger demonstrations in Washington, D.C. or
New York City or the Peace Conferences in other
cities. During the last few months the GPC has been
to the post office to protest everything from draft
registrastion to the Soviet occupation in
Afghanistan.
Of course much of what the GPC does usually puts
them into direct conflict with the powers that be. It's
not unusual for someone in the group (or the group
itself) to be called communist. Prank phone calls
ridiculing the group are also common. For the last
few years Edith, who is an ECU English instuctor,
has been keeping a record of GPC activities in what
she calls the "Peace Book Flipping through the
pages one can read press accounts of the groups ac-
tivities, copies of flyers distributed at past events and
other tidbits of information. Looking carefully one
can notice a small index card with the words "The
GPC-anti-American Communist bastards" written
on it This card was found under the windshield
wipers on one of the cars belonging to a person atten-
ding a GPC meeting. There was also an egg splat-
tered on the windshild.
Another time, while the GPC was protesting it s
opposition to the draft at the 2nd street post office an
irrate customer charged out of the doors and punch-
ed ECU student Andy Rector in the face. Members
of the GPC. in the spirit of non-violence did not fight
back. Instead they calmly surrounded Rector to pre-
vent further attack. Save these two incidents most of
the GPC's activities are indeed peaceful.
When asked to describe what the Peace Committee
is. Carroll, who is a former ECU math professor
answers "Thai's a good questionAfter hesitating
for a moment he said "It's a group of people who
want a just and peaceful world and think that it takes
special efforts outside their ordinary activities to
make it more likely
Webber said there are no requirements for GPC
membership ad no dues are collected. "We give each
other adivce and we get he adds "and without that
special effort it's (a just and peaceful world) not like-
lv to happen
' Several years ago the Webbers decided that bet-
ween them they were making more money than they
needed. Carroll also felt a need to work more directly
in Peace and Justice work. Besides he figured if he
retired that would make room for someone else who
needed a job. So it was agreed, Carroll retired at age
48 and Edith kept bringing home the bread (she also
bakes a great deal of it for the weekly meetings.) As
part of their peace work, the Webbers also believe in
simple living, .which includes among other things
riding bicycles instead of driving cars. As a matter of
fact it's not unusual to see several bicycles parked
outside there home on a Friday night. 1 ast June the
Webber's rode their tanden (bicycle built for two) all
the wav to the large United Nations Peace Rally in
New York City. They had done the same in 19 H
Like Carroll said, the group gives each other ad-
vice and gets u. Most members cite consciousness
raising and" education as their primary goals. When
one considers the fact that most people in Greenville
have heard of the Greenville Peace Committee, it's
probablv safe to say that one thing they do get is
recognition.Most members just laugh at the com-
munist label that is often attached to the group.
Quips one member, "If that's true (that we're all
communists) then there sure are a hell of a lot of
commmunists in Greenville North Carolina.
Repeat Performance Of
Hilariously Funny Flick
Due to technical failure of the
projection equipment in
Mendenhall Student Center Sight
Shift was not shown on Saturday-
night. To quell the disappoint-
ment and allow fans to catch this
funny flick Sight Shift will be
shown tonight at 7 p.m. in Hen-
drix Theatre.
Night Shift is a zany, bawdy
comedy about two working guys
who stumble into a screwball
business scheme. They attempt to
operate a call girl ring from their
place of work � the New York
City morgue.
Henry Winlker stars as Chuck,
a talented but timid stock broker
who flopped on Wall Street and
has retreated into a safe little job
as night manager at the morgue.
There he meets driver Bill
Blazejowski, a motor-mouthed
"idea man" who becomes his
flamboyant partner and his
friend. The high-spirited
character is played by Michael
Keaton in big feature film debut.
This unlikely pair of klutzy en-
trepreneurs share a wild adventure
in big-city night life. Uninhibited
Bill hustles up the clients, while
shy, conservative Chuch manages
the business, applying financial
savvy and progressive work pro-
grams to the tough and dangerous
trade of prostitution.
Shelley Long stars as Chuck's
apartment building neighbor,
Belinda, a bittersweet young
hooker. Through a bizarre chain
of events, Chuck and Bill form a
mutually profitable association
with Bilinda and a dozen other
beautiful and vivacious call girls.
The frantic situation is further
complicated when Chuch and
Belinda fall in love, despite her
work demands and his engage-
ment to a neurotic young woman
with a diet fetish.
Ron Howard, internationally
known as "Richie Cunningham"
on seven hit seasons of Happy
Days, has realized a long-nurtured
dream by branching into direc-
ting. Night Shift is his first major
studio producton, a Ladd Com
pany film, which has all of the
elements of a zany comedy.
As a director, Ron Howard's
previous credit was Grand Theft
Auto, a small action picture that
grossed over $15 million. Howard
also starred in the film and co-
wrote the screenplay.
In 1981 he directed the highly-
rated television drama Skyward.

Their purpose was

The test was simple.
They showed pictures

Cedar Key, on the Gulf of Mexico, is one of the
prettiest little islands you'll ever explore. (I'd
hate to call it quaint. Everyone does, though.)
If you have your own canoe, you can tool
through the swampy ribbon of water separating
Cedar Keys from the mainland, but more like-
ly, you'll want to pack your Coleman stove
awav for a night and check yourself in to one of
the island's gulfside seafood restaurants.From
any of the three perched right on the water, you
can watch the sunset and stuff yourself on gasp-
ingl fresh broiled seafood and heart-of-palm
salad. Don't be put off when your waitress tells
you that heart-of-palm is a type of wild swamp
cabbage; it's topped with a scoop of light green
ice cream of such mysterious flavor that you'll
have an exciting time trying to identify it. My
guess, by the way, is a cross of pistachio and
peanut. Very local. The rest of the key is a small
fishing town with a tiny downtown and a single
hotel with a bar cooled by ceiling fans; the local
historical society sponsore a few guided tours
of stately old homes, and a state museum offers
explanations of the wierd vegetation and the
island's history. Locals at the Captain's Table
bar will tell you when the last saltsoaked bale of
marijuana washed ashore and how quickly the
local police got to it. Just don't try to run
barefoot on the tiny beach � those are sand-
spurs, not peebles. In the springtime, the town
hosts an annual art how and in the summer, a
seafood festival.
Once you've had your fill of scaled oysters
(the Gulf way to eat them), pack your things
and get thee to Ocala National Forest, the
date's biggest and wildest (except for the
Everglades � another trip) park. Sprinkled
with lakes, rivers,and old grain mills, Ocala is
bounded on the east by Lake Geoge and the St.
you'll find a deserted beach peppered with
massive, prehistoric-looking rock formations.
If it's too cold to swim, you can still sit on a
rock at the water's edge and eat a picnic lunch
with the salt water foaming over your feet. The
rocks extend out to sea, making swimming
more than a tad dangerous, but if it's warm the
swimming is safer a mile or so south. And if it
rains, chuck it all and drive up to St. Augustine,
where you can weather it out touring the city's
numerous museums and historical sites or just
lounging over Iced Tea (the kind with four li-
quors � or more) at Scarlett O'Hara's. There's
camping nearby at Anastasia State Park on St.
Augustine Beach.
If you chose the inland path, you can check
out Payne's Prairie State Wildlife Preserve, one
of the most God-forsaken yet bristlingly alive
one-time river beds you'll ever see. Take the
nature walk and climb the lookout tower, but
wear boots. Heavy ones. The drive out of the
Praire deposits you squarely in Gainesville,
home of Harry Crews, the University of
Florida, and a host of bars with rapidly chang-
ing names and an awful lot of friendly people.
Should you want to go hog-wild in Hogtown
(Gainesville's ancient nickname) and spend all
the money you've saved cooking your own
burgers along the way, the town is thick with
good restaurants; Mr. Han's and the Sovereign
are the top stand-outs. You can splurge on
equally good chow in St. Augustine if you took
the beach route.
Time to head home. Take the drive on 1-95 or
1-75 slow and easy, as the gentlemen of the
highway patrol eagerly await returning college
students with state-of-the-art radar. In par-
ticular, the town of Macon, Georgia and the en-
tire state of South Carolina regin as the current
ticket capitals of the universe. You don't want
to spoil your unique vaction with anything so
dreary as an expensive speeding ticket.
Anyway, who wants to rush home to finish
that paper due the day after break? Savor the
ride and console yourself: spring break is just
51 weeks away.

Hunt Named As Top Coach
JACKSON, Miss.
(UPI) � Lee Hunt,
who kept his
Mississippi Rebels in
the thick of the title
chase until almost the
end, has won this
year's top coaching
honor in the
Southeastern Con-
ference.
Hunt, making his
debut as a head coach
in the rugged SEC this
vear after 16 years
elsewhere as an assis-
tant coach, today was
named SEC Basket-
ball Coach of the
Vear by United Press
International.
Mississippi State
University's Bob
Boyd was runner-up
and Vanderbilt's
C.M. Newton and
Auburn's Sonny
Smith tied for a dis-
tant third in balloting
by sportswriters and
sportscasters in the
seven-state region.
"This is very grati-
fying said Hunt, an
assistant coach at
Central Missouri
State, Memphis State,
Illinois, UCLA and
Alabama-
Birmingham before
being picked to guide
the Rebels this season.
"It is very gratify-
ing that I was able to
get a major coaching
job and then get
coach of the year
honors the same
year he said. "It is
really a thrill for me
But Hunt said most
of the credit should go
to the Ole Miss
players.
"I told the players
at the outset we just
had to go out and play
hard, not let anything
interfere with our
plans said Hunt. "I
told them we had to
go out and work and
maybe some good
things would happen.
The players did play
hard and we were able
to win
Earlier this week,
the United States
Basketball Writers
Association named
Hunt Coach of the
Year in District 3A.
He's one of nine
coaches who are now
candidates for the
USBWA's National
Coach of the Year
award.
Hunt's outmanned
Rebels, predicted to
finish among the also-
rans in the SEC this
year, were eliminated
from the title chase
Tuesday in a disap-
pointing loss to
Auburn. The loss
gave Kentucky its
34th SEC champion-
ship with two games
to go and dropped Ole
Miss into a second-
place tie with Vander-
bilt.
The Rebels, 16-9
and 9-7 in the SEC,
host the Wildcats
Thursday night and
end their regular
season at home
against Vanderbilt on
Saturday.
Hunt, who said he
had always wanted to
be a major college
coach, coached high
school ball for nine
years before becom-
ing an assistant at
Central Missouri
State, his alma mater.
He left Alabama-
Birmingham at the
end of last season,
concluding 12 years as
an assistant to Gene
Bartow, to replace
Bob Weltlich who
went to Texas � in-
heriting a team that
wound up 18-12 after
a trip to the NIT.
Sneaker Sam Sez
Basketball Winding
Down
A total of 180
teams took to ihe

January, and now on-
ly a handful of teams
still remain. In the
fraternity A division

Tau. The Jones En-
forcers will play the

hall champion. The
aggessive Rimbenders
will play the high
scoring Joint Eight in
the powerhouse in-
dependent division.
The undefeated
Alpha Delta Pi squad
will play Alpha Phi to
see who is the top
sorority. The Sharp-
shooters of Fletcher
will square up against
the Tyler Drivers to
decide the best
women's residence
hall, and in the
women's independent
division quite a
match-up should
develop between the
Heartbreakcrs and the
Fastbreak.

Sampson Ready For Tourney
GREENSBORO,
NX. (UPI) �
Virginia's Ralph
Sampson said it was
time for the second-
ranked Cavaliers to
hit stride in the chase
for the NCAA cham-
pionship and he led
the charge in that
direction Wednesday.
The 7-foot-4 Samp-
son scored 28 points
and did everything
but lead the band in a
107-74 Atlantic Coast
Conference "out of
Wake Forest.
"We're trying to
peak at tournament
time said Sampson,
who is playing out his
senior year but has
never won an ACC or
NCAA title.
"Regardless of not
winning the ACC
championship, just
look at our record
(over the past few
years).
"We played 27
minutes of great ball
tonight and there's a
big difference in at-
titude and play from
last year this time.

A
Cowart Established As All-Time Scorer
Photo by GARY PATTERSON
ECU's Roger Newsom will need plenty of smooth putting next week
when the Pirates host the Fast Carolina Invitational at Brook Valley
Country Club March 8-10.
George Makes Switch
JOHNSON CITY,
Tenn. (UPI) � A bus
heading to the first
female Southern Con-
ference finals Thurs-
day morning will
carry Marsha Cowart
toward the end of a
collegiate career that
set East Tennessee
State's all-time
basketball scoring
record.
In four years as a
starter for the league-
leading Lady Buc-
caneers, Cowart has
scored 2,240 points �
breaking Tom
Chilton's old record
of 1,801. Chilton set
his record in three
years. Cowart scored
1,827 her last three
years.
Tallying more than
When Nan George joined the
East Carolina University swim
team last year after the gymnastic
program at ECU was dropped, no
one really knew what to expect.
However, the former Pirate
gymnast soon proved to be a
leader, both in and out of the
pool. In 1981-82, she left her
name on four varsity records, in-
cluding the 500-yard freestyle in-
dividual mark and three relay
marks.
She also made an impact per-
sonally. According to head swim
coach Rick Kobe, "She is our
most talented swimmer and a very
nice person to work with. We're
very fortunate to have her in our
program
George's performances this
year have again resulted in new
varsity marks. She broke her own
50-yard freestyle record at the
beginning of the season and then
set a new mark in the 100-freestyle
at the end of the season.
"It was a strange season
George explained. "1 made my
qualifying marks and set the 50
free record right at the beginning
of the season. Then we went to
Florida over Christmas and work-
ed really hard. I got broken
down. When we came back 1
didn't swim very well. But then, in
the last meet of the season,
against Duke, I came back and
swam mv best time ever in the 100
free
The junior from Manassas,
Virginia has done this in spite of
physical problems.
George says, "When I get back
from the Nationals, I have to have
knee surgery. I hurt it my
freshman year in gymnastics. I
can barely walk, much less run
She has also had difficulty with
her shoulders.
Kobe comments, "She's swim-
ming with pain and that makes
her performances even more im-
pressive
But some things have been
easier this year. "It's been easier
getting back into the routine
George said. "Last year was the
first time in the water after not
swimming a couple of years
She also tries to take it easy
mentally.
"I don't feel much pressure; at
least, I try not to put pressure on
myself she added. "Most of it's
on the freshmen. The team this
year is fun. The freshmen are
really enthusiastic
George will be traveling with
the women's team to Long Beach,
California March 16-19 for the
NCAA Division II national cham-
pionships. At the meet, she'll be
swimming three individual events
(the 50 and 100 freestyle and the
100 Individual Medley) plus five
relay events.
Kobe said George should have a
good showing at the Nationals.
"We expect her to win an event.
Of all the swimmers we've had,
she's the one who should come
back a national champion
George is a junior art major,
focusing on ceramics and fine
arts. "It doesn't seem like I ever
sleep Of her future career
plans, she said, "I think I'd like to
go into production pottery when
I'm finished with school. It's im-
portant for me to be doing
something I enjoy
Much of George's attitude
about swimming, school and life
in general comes from a deep
religious faith. She explains
about her swimmng: "It's a form
of communicating my belief in
Christ. In whatever I do, if I do
my very best, then the rest will be
taken care of George has
become more active this year in
the Fellowship of Christian
Athletes at ECU and has found a
lot of friendship there.
Nan George talks about doing
her best, and whether it's swimm-
ing, making pottery, or day-to-
day activities, her best is pretty
good.

2,000 points is quite
an achievement for
man or woman, Lady
Buc Coach Susan
Yow said Wednesday.
"This may have
happened to other
women players � but
they're few and far
between Yow said.
"Probably under 1
percent of the players
in college have scored
2,000 points in their
careers.
"What's really in-
credible is that she
probably attempts 18
shots a game
Cowart, who Yow
calls "very much a
team player scored
in double digits in 102
of her 110 games. But
the preacher's
daughter from Gib-
sonville, N.C speaks
of her hoop success
modestly and says she
has "really been bless-
ed" to be able to set a
college record.
That record "lets
people know how far
women have come in
this game Yow said.
"I think the thing
that's noticed here in
East Tennessee, where
people are uneducated
about women's
athletics, is that we're
recruiting top-quality
people
Beating a man's
record pleased
Cowart because "it
proves that the
women's skill level is
up there, even though
we'll never be able to
compete physically
with men she said.
"I know, you
know, women know
the level of intensity
and skill they play
on she said.
"Whether or not
anybody else wants to
admit it is their pro-
blem
If Cowart were a
man, she likely would
be besieged with pro-
fessional recruiters
waiting to snatch her
for the NBA. She said
she has had "to face
reality" and accept
that fact that there are
no national women's
teams waiting to draft
her.
Now she dreams of
playing on an Olym-
pic team, but "that's
just dreaming she
said. Until the con-
ference champion-
ships are over, she's
not thinking much
about the future.
The Lady Bucs are
16-9 and may, just
may, have a "slim"
shot at an at-large slot
in the national cham-
pionships if they win
the confernce, Yow
said.
If not, basketball is
all over except for
coaching for Cowart,
a physical education
major who saw her
No. 14 jersey retired
during last Saturday's
game between the
Bucs and Ap-
palachian State.
And a bit of ETSU
history is over as well,
Yow said.
"Coaching five
players of Marsha
Cowan's calibre
would be a feast in
itself Yow said. "I
could coach 20 more
years and I'd be lucky
to recruit another
player like Marsha
Cowart
The Lady Bucs will
play their first cham-
pionship ship game at
Marshall Univesnty in
Huntington, W.Ya.
Friday night against
the winners of Thurs-
day night's Ap-
palachian State-
Marshall game.
