Boudreaux Reacts To High Court Decision
By PATRICK O'NEILL
Financial Aid Director Robert
M. Boudrtaux said last week's
Supreme Court decision which
Robert M. Boudreaux

allowed student financial aid
elegibility to be conditioned on
whether the student has registered
for the draft discriminates against
the poor and could represent an
administrative burden for univer-
sity officials.
"They're not penalizing all col-
lege students Boudreaux said.
"If you are from a rich family and
you say 'the hell with it; I'm not
going to register for the Selective
Service it's (the new require-
ment) not penalizing you one bit.
"But if you come from a poor
family Boudreaux continued,
"It's penalizing you because
without that financial aid you
could not go to school
Under current regulations, a
student applying for federal
financial aid need only sign a
statement saying he or she has
registered or is exempt. Initially,
the regulation would have re-
quired students to submit a letter
of proof or compliance before
receiving aid.
No proof will be required for
the next two years. However, in
the fall of 1985, the federal
government may decide to enact
phase two of its plan which would
require written documentation
certifying the student has com-
plied with the law. Boudreaux
said if enacted, phase two would
be an administrative burden for
his office and could mean
substantial delays in the applica-
tion process.
"It's taken the burden off of
us, but I'm still not satisfied
because they're using this method
to arrive at what they want to
do Boudreaux said "It's
(registration) an individual thing.
I believe that the federal govern-
ment would have ways of doing it
other than using something that
has nothing to do with Selective
Service to begin with
Boudreaux said all validation
checks of student records will be
conducted by the federal govern-
ment officials during periodic
program reviews.
Program reviews are inspec-
tions of college financial aid pro-
grams. They are conducted to
make sure programs are operating
according to federal re-
quirements. During these reviews,
Boudreaux said, is when the
government will probably ran-
domlv select aid recipients to see if
they have complied with the
registration requirement.
Based on past scheduling pat-
terns, Boudreaux said he doesn't
expect federal officials to check
ECU financial aid records for at
least two years. "We had one 2 :
years ago Boudreaux said
"The chances are, unless they
change their schedule of visits
completely, no student at ECU
will be checked
Boudreaux said the federal
government could check student
records during its annual audit of
ECU's financial aid program, or
they could even make the check
without coming to the university.
Boudreaux said the government
could ask him to randomly select
25 or 50 names of students who
have claimed to register and sub-
mit them b mail for validation.
"There's still mechanics that it
could be done without their com-
ing for a program review
Boudreaux said.
At present. HI students ap-
plving for financial aid will be
asked to complete a torrn titled
"Statement ot Educational Pur-
pose Registration Compliance.1
Boudreaux office sent the new.
statements to the ECI Print Shop
on Friday. They are expected to
be available this week.
Boudreaux predicted the new
regulation would probabl) be
discontinued if, after two years,
the federal government � -tied
with the compliance rate. "If the
see that the students are lying
about it. then 1 think that tin
take in phase two '
Supreme Court Rules
A id Recipients Must Register
From Slaff ind VV ire Rcpons
All male college students ap-
plying for federal financial aid
will have to sign a statement
certifying compliance with
selective service laws, and any
male claiming exemption and
all women must fill out the
same form stating their reason
for exemption.
The new procedure, which
was in limbo since a June Min-
nesota court ruling, was upheld
in a Wednesday decision by the
Supreme Court which lifted an
injunction issued on June 17 by
U.S. District Judge Donald D.
Alsop. Alsop had ordered that
the law not be enforced in any
state because it was unconstitu-
tional.
Six anonymous students,
represented by the Minnesota
Civil Liberties Union and the
Minnesota Public Interest
Research Group, challenged
the law that required all
students asking for federal
financial aid to verify that they
had registered for the draft.
Alsop contended that the so-
called Solomon Amendment
was unconstitutional because it
"determines guilt and inflicts
punishment on an identifiable
group based on the past act of
non-registration without the
protections of a judicial trial
The Supreme Court lifted
Alsop's injunction, allowing
the law to remain on the books
until the Court decides whether
to hear arguments on the law's
legality. The Court's new term
begins in October.
Students who have not
registered as of last Friday will
not be eligible for any financial
aid assistance. Friday, the
Department of Education gave
schools a 30-day grace period
to get their programs set up.
"We have already gone to
print on our new certifica-
tions said ECU Director of
Financial Aid Robert M.
Boudreaux. "We're ready to
go on it
Boudreaux's office has
printed up a new form titled
"Statement of Educational
PurposeRegistration Com-
pliance The form requires all
students requesting financial
aid to certify if they have
registered for the draft, or, if
not, they must explain why
they are exempt. Exemptions
include being female, already-
serving on active duty in the
armed forces, not being 18
years old and residing per-
manently in the Trust Territory
of the Pacific Islands or the
Northern Mariana Islands.
Students aren't required to
show proof that their
statements are true.
Boudreaux, who is opposed to
the new law for several reasons,
said he doubts any of the
statements signed by ECU
students will be checked tor
validity for at least two years.
Boudreaux said he is not
counseling students to attempt
to circumvent the law, but he
does believe the government
should be able to find a more
equitable means of enforcing
its registration requirements.
Barbara Fay Mann, a
spokesperson for the Raleigh-
based Draft Information Ser-
vice, said her organization was
opposed to the law. "Draft In-
formation Service feels that it is
a highly unconstitutional law,
and we hope that in the future
this will be borne out Mann
said. "It's a real tragedy that
this is continuing to plague
low-income students
Since the law's inception
during the Carter administra-
tion, the new military registra-
tion law has met with
resistance. Some Department
of Defense officials maintain
the new law will enable the
United States to prepare a stan-
ding army more quickly in the
event of a national emergency.
"We don't feel that draft
registration or the draft are
necessary Mann said. "We
feel that if there was a true na-
tional emergency, volunteerism
would come forth
Other opponents of the law,
including Boudreaux, claim
that it discriminates against
male college students.

Fire Damages Kappa Sigma House;

STATE NEWS BRIEFS
From Staff and Wire Reports
�The N.C. General Assembly
gave final approval Friday to
legislation permitting future death
row inmates to choose between
Christian TV
death in the gas chamber and
death by injection.
In a 36-2 vote, the Senate con-
curred with two final House
amendments, enabling the
measure to pass. The new law, to
take effect next week, will not ap-
ply to the 33 inmates now
awaiting execution in North
Carolina's gas chamber.
Proponents of the bill claim the
lethal injection method of execu-
tion is more humane. However,
the N.C. Medical Society opposed
the bill on the grounds that doc-
tors, nurses and other health pro-
fessionals, who are trained to give
injections, have an obligation to
save lives, not take them. The
group also argued that the chance
of error would increase if laymen
were allowed to give the injec-
tions.
New Station To Air Soon
By DARRYL BROWN
Staff Writer
Eastern North Carolina will get its first Christian
television station in less than a year, and the station
will be the first in a national network affiliated
with the Southern Baptist Convention, according
to a spokesman for the American Christian Televi-
sion System.
The station, to be built in Greenville at a cost ot
$3.5 million, will be a non-commercial, UHF sta-
tion broadcasting on Channel 14, according to
Thomas J. Payne, chairman of the Southern Bap-
tist Radio and Television Commission. Payne will
also head the 14-member board of trustees who will
oversee the Greenville station.
Programming on the station will offer an alter-
native to both commercial networks and the
"stand-up preaching" of other religious networks,
Payne said. "We'll be a full-powered station that
will do local news, weather and sports He said
offerings will include music, drama and children's
programming. Broadcasts should begin in May,
1984, Payne said, and will run 16 hours a day,
seven days a week.
The station will not have commercials and wiu
not solicit for contributions on the air, Payne said.
"On air solicitation takes something away; we
want to be a giver of good programming to the
American people He said the station, and the en-
tire network, would collect operating funds in a
'more dignified, personal" way, probablythrough
written letters. The station will cost about $WU,uuu
to operate each year. u a
Baptist church and business officials launched a
fund raising drive last month at Memorial Baptist
Church in Greenville. Payne expects most con-
tributions to come from individuals.
ACTS, started three years ago by the Southern
Baptist Convention, hopes to have 20 stations
operating in the country by next May. Projections
call for over 100 stations in two years. Station sites
have already been confirmed in Arkansas and
Texas as well as Greenville.
The stations will be individually owned and
operated, not controlled by the Southern Baptist
Convention, Payne said. The stations' affiliation
with the SBC allow it to select programs from two
satellite transponders owned by the SBC which will
broadcast from Fort Worth, Tex and Nashville.
Each transponder will broadcast 24 hours a day
across the country and will cost $340,000 per
month to operate.
The Baptist network will also receive programm-
ing in cooperation with Catholic broadcasters out
of BirminghamAla according to Payne.
He said there are no other Christian television
networks or radio stations broadcasting from
eastern North Carolina. The Greenville station's
signal, with about 5 million watts of power, will
reach from the Outer Banks to Wake County.
� Fifteen North Carolinians
were among a group of 145 people
from 30 states who left Sunday
for a five-day tour of the Central
American nation of Nicaragua.
The group plans to spend two
days in a warzone about two miles
from the Honduran border.
The trip was organized by the
Carolina Interfaith Taskforce on
Central America in hopes that the
presence of American civilians
near the warzone would bring a
halt to the fighting. During a
previous trip, also sponsored by
the task force, civilians told the
group that anti-Sandinista guer-
rillas did not fire their weapons on
a border village because they
knew Americans were in the area.
Faculty members from several
N.C. universities are on the trip.
Joseph C. Moran, co-leader of
the trip, said the group hoped to
"publicize Nicaraguan people's
desire for peace demonstrate
opposition to the "undeclared
war against Nicaragua and
"highlight the United States' role
in the war Moran spent ten
years as a missionary in Central
America.

ville Fire Department.
The fire, which occurred about
4 p.m. Wednesday, was limited to
one room and resulted in substan-
tial property damage but no per-
sonal injuries. Insurance auditors
still have not reviewed the
damage, and no estimate on the
amount of property loss is
available from the fraternity.
Bill Kilby and Stewart Teeter
were roommates in the damaged
room. Neither was present at the
time of the fire. Both suffered
smoke damage to clothing and
other property. "1 lost all my
clothes. 1 lost about everything
Kilby said. They were not sure
how much of the clothing could
be cleaned or how much would
have to be replaced.
The official fire report by the
Greenville Fire Department listed
fire and water damage as light,
but smoke damage as medium.
Most room damage occurred on
the wall and cieling around the
window where the fan was placed.
The fire was discovered b
residents in Umstead dormitory,
which is directly across 10th Street
from the fraternity house.
Students reported seeing smoke
billowing from upstair's windows.
and dorm supervisors called me
fire department.
Fraternity members John
Hamnck and Bill Disher were the
first to fight the blaze. They said
there were few flames, but smoke
was heavy. It was just black in-
side. We put towels around our
mouths, but it wasn't anv use
Disher said.
The fraternity house is insured
with the national headquaters of
Kappa Sigma in Chaiiottesviile,
Va. The fire department report
said insurance covered the house
and contents. Hamnck also said
the house is equipped with fire
alarms, but they did not go off.
The nearest alarm wa- in the hall
just outside the room.
The fire is the second to hit an
ECU fraternity house this vear

but the did have fire alarms that
functioned properly when the tire
broke out.
The occupants of the damaged
room have been relocated to va-
cant rooms in the house Hamnck
said they hoped to have the room
repaired in 1! two weeks
1982 Survey Shows ECU
Freshmen 'In The Money'
A survey of ECU freshmen con-
ducted during orientation last fall
shows that more than half of
ECU's 1982-83 freshman class
came from families with annual
incomes of $30,000 or more, and
more than half have parents who
attended college, although only
three percent are children of ECU
alumni.
The survey results, conducted
by the American Council on
Education, were given to the Divi-
sion of Student Life. The survey
shows the proportion of students
from affluent families is rising at
ECU; 30.4 percent are members
of families with incomes ex-
ceeding $40,000, an increase of
seven percent over last year's
freshman class. Ten percent are
from very low socio-economic
backgrounds with annual incomes
below $10,000 with at least one
parent who did not complete high
school.
Nearly half noted their religious
preference as Protestant; 13.6 per-
cent are Roman Catholic and 1.2
percent are Jewish. Less than a
fourth of the resondants claimed
to be financially independent of
their parents with more than half
receiving most of the funds for
education from their parents. On-
ly 17.9 percent indicated that
financing their education was a
"major concern

Financial Aid
Decision Boosts Discrimination
Last week, the Supreme Court
ordered into effect a law denying
federal college loans and grants to
thousands of men who fail to
register for the draft.
Actually, the justices lifted an
injunction by a Minnesota judge
that would have blocked the law
and permitted men who fail to
register to continue collecting stu-
dent aid. Thus, in essence, the law
will remain on the books through
the summer and into the fall, until
the Supreme Court decides
whether or not to hear arguments
on its legality.
Therefore, as of July 1 (last Fri-
day), any draft-age man applying
for federal student aid must sign a
statement saying he has registered.
But as cut-and-dry as the law
may sound at first, its far-reaching
effects, its subsequent implica-
tions, may not be so simple.
financial aid delays can be.
Of course, proponents of the
law argue that persons not comply-
ing with one federal law (draft
registration) should not benefit
from another (financial aid). And,
indeed, this argument holds water.
The leak, however, is in the fact
that except for a very select few, no
one has been convicted of draft
registration evasion. So, in effect,
the law determines the guilt of
those who have not yet even been
formally charged, let alone tried,
let alone convicted.
Judge Donald D. Alsop, who
heard this most recent case in U.S.
District Court, echoed this fact in
his decision. The written
disclosure, Alsop said, deter-
mines guilt and inflicts punishment
on a identifiable group based on
the past act of non-registration
without the protections of a
ECU Director of Financial Aid judicial trial and
Robert M. Boudreaux foresees at
least two major problems with the
ruling. In the first place,
Boudreaux says, the law
discriminates against the poor col-
lege student. And secondly, he
foresees a tremendous future
burden for all U.S. financial aid
offices.
The law discriminates against
the poor, Boudreaux says, because
it penalizes underprivileged non-
registrants, while not affecting in
the least non-registrants coming
from wealthier families. Naturally,
less fortunate college students rely
heavily � and in many cases,
totally � on federal financial aid
to get through school. Thus, a
non-registrant from a poor family
is forced to quit school, while his
counterpart from a "more for-
tunate" background remains in
college virtually unaffected.
The burden Boudreaux foresees
is in the additional work for his
and other offices around the coun-
try. At this point, no written proof
of registration will be required for
those applying for federal aid.
However, in the fall of 1985, the
federal government may decide to
enact phase two of its plan, requir-
ing all applicants to submit such
written documentation. This,
Boudreaux says, will slow the pro-
cessing procedure and increase his
office's work load considerably.
And most of us know how costly

That fact is undisputed. What can
be disputed, however, is the
federal government's handling of

they do not wish to attack the pro-

themselves deem "proper In-

Whether Or Not He Decides To Run In '84,
Jesse Jackson's Impact Will Surely Be Felt
By PAT O'NEILL
I like Jesse Jackson. I'm impressed by
his leadership qualities, his dedication
and charisma.
Recently, Jackson has been touring
the nation, drawing large audiences,
registering lots of voters and,
presumably, testing presidential waters.
Every so often, Jackson hints that he's
"pondering the idea" of running for the
1984 Democratic nomination.
Judging from the mixed responses
Jackson is getting, there is not yet a
unified contingent among black leaders
to encourage him to run. Many leaders
are worried that a Jackson candidacy
would polarize the Democratic party,
paving the way for a more conservative
hopeful like John Glenn over liberals
like Gary Hart, Alan Cranston or
Walter Mondale. Others claim that the
42-year-old Jackson is neither qualified
nor experienced enoi.h to seek the na-
tion's top office.
On both of these points, I tend to see
other sides. First of all, the election is
still 16 months away, and anything can
happen between now and then. Regar-
ding qualifications for that position,
Ronald Reagan is living proof that this
isn't a factor among voters.
Jackson at the helm would make me
breathe easier. Besides, Jackson, a civil
rights leader and organizer for 20 years,
is a pretty solid choice for the post.
Jackson grew up in poverty in Green-
ville, S.C. At age six, he held his first
job; by 11, he held a managerial post at
a woodyard. Only one year after receiv-
ing a football scholarship to the Univer-
sity of Illinois in 1959, Jackson quit the
team and the school. "Negroes were
supposed to be linemen not quarter-
backs he said upon exit. Subsequent-
ly, he graduated from Greensboro's
Agricultural and Technical College in
1964. He'd been elected president of the
student body while there.
He studied further at the Chicago
Theological Seminary and was ordained
a Baptist minister in 1968. That same
year, it was Jackson who cradled the
head of Martin Luther King Jr. in his
arms after King was gunned
down.Jackson thought of King as
my father figure, my brother figure and
my teacher
In his years of service, Jackson played
an important role in the civil rights
struggle. His efforts have resulted in in-
creased numbers of blacks getting better
jobs. His current organization, People
United to Save Humamtv (PUSH), is
carrying on the work for equality and
justice begun by King and others
Although Jackson has never held
public office, the prospect of his can-
didacy can only reap positive results.
Democrats and Republicans alike are
more likely this time out to pay attention
to the needs of black Americans just
because Jackson's around. Because of
his popularity and influence. Jackson
has been able to get thousands of blacks
out registering to vote. This is another
plus. He's also an accessible leader
Earlier this year. 1 was able to get
Jackson on the phone for an interview
with a minimum effort.
Unfortunately, numbers tell the story
of 'he continuing lack of representation
of blacks in major elected offices. Cur-
rently, only 21 U.S. representatives are
black. There are no bVacV se&axot w
governors. These three groups account
for 585 elected positions, meaning that
only 3.6 percent of our top national
leaders are black.
At this point, whether Jackson
decides to run or not, there is little doubt
that the impact of his efforts will result
in greater influence for blacks in 1984
and years to come.
A Line For All Seasons
In the beginning was the word
Shortly thereafter, of course, came
"the line
Ah yes, the infamous pick-up line. A
virtual bastion of 20th-century relation-
ships. But as much of a surprise as this
may come to us collegiate Casanovas,
lines are nothing new. Why, most
scholars agree that they're as old as
mankind itself. Nonetheless, I have
some trouble believing that it all started
when Adam strolled over to Eve for the
first time, put on his best Rock Hudson
and asked, "Hey, baby, haven't I seen
you 'round here before?"
But when you stop and think about it,
pitching a line is a pretty stupid way of
meeting a person. I mean, about half the
time, the line doesn't work, and nine
times out of 10, it doesn't really even
make sense. Take one of the more in-
famous singles' bar icebreakers, for ex-
ample: "Hey, baby, aren't you a
mode!?" Now sure, at first glance, this
may seem like a pretty good way to get
the proverbial ball rolling, but honestly,
how many models nowadays have
44-inch bustlines? Or for that matter,
how many models (aside, of course,
from those who pose for diet magazines)
need to go out to sleezy singles' bars to
get picked up by schleps like you?
'Ooh! Ooh! How Sad It Is'
In reply to natsy letters to Mr.
Hughes:
Ooh! Ooh!
How sad it is to see the two letters
recently printed in The East Caroli-
nian. The injustice you have served
Mr. Hughes is only complimented by
your short-sightedness into the art of
dry wit. The reader, indeed, is left baf-
fled by each of your comments.
How sad it is to see your com-
parisons between bathroom wall pen-
manship and Mr. Hughes' column. I'm
curious, whose bathroom wall have
you been reading lately? Seems to me
the comparison is unfair. If Mike has
been peeping into the ladies' room for
material, I'm sure he would have given
proper credit to the authoress, or at
least to which floor in Austin at which
the humor � nay, banal humor � was
found. What are you doing in the
men's room anyhow?
How sad it is to see a bright, in-
telligent spot on the editorial page be
soiled with the description "disgusting
fixations Pray tell what is so
disgusting about a parody on the way
the world really is? I suppose the ar-
ticles on world humger and the sad
state of affairs overseas are satisfac-
tory reading. Seems to me that hunger
and the problems overseas are depress-
ing. 'Tis nice to be informed on what is
going on in the world, yet 'tis nicer to
see some humor coming out of such a
depressing age.
How sad it is to see your limitations
on what other people see as humorous.
Please, if the articles dismay you so
much, there are many more stories to
be read that are not so disgusting.
Alas, the editorial page is only what the
name implies. Miss Albin should well
know this. Anyone can feel free to
comment on any topic, ranging from
the ECU Nazi Society and Chess Club
to the food served at the Crow's Nest.
Seems to me, opinions are a dime a
dozen, and irate letters to the editor are
no exception.
How sad it is to see how dainty the
feelings of professionals can be when
they are stomped on by banal humor.
Really now. Professionals have opi-
nions too. It may surprise you that they
may also have disgusting fixations.
Seems to me that if the material of-
fends them, the paper must have
assuredly received several � nay,
multitudes � of letters in response.
They also have the option to read the
article if they please.
How sad it is to see the talent of Mr.
Hughes brushed off so eagerly and
spitefully. Miss Bentley-Maughan's
plea to shut down the paper because of
her inability to accept another person's
views was totally uncalled for. And
certainly, anyone familiar with Miss
Albin's work can figure out why she
has little room to talk.
However, please don't let this letter
discourage anyone from writing the
paper. In essence, this letter is my opi-
nion, and I may not be necessarily cor-
rect in my feelings. If you disagree,
please reply. I won't read the letter
anyway.

Personally, I don't much go in for the
old standbys. Not only do they make me
uncomfortable to say and hear, but I
realize that success in a venture such as
this relies first and foremost on catering
the line to the individual. However, I'm
sure that for the average mind, develop-
ing a repertoire of successful lines may
take years, decades, even a lifetime or
two. So here, then, just to get you aimed
in the right direction, are a few rules
on lines:
� Say, for instance, that for one
reason or another, you want to get to
know a fat girl sitting up at the bar.
Well, I guess the first thing to remember
is that just like you, girls have needs too.
They need love, tenderness, caring
and in this case, perhaps something to
eat. So, should you find yourself in this
predicament at some time in your life, I
suggest something short and to the
point, perhaps a line like: "Hey,
sweetheart, a new shipment of Lebanese girls. Now, whereas VSJ TiSSnSom
sausage came in this morning, and I've lot of detail about micro-pWr cir-
cuitry or import car sales, I have found
you were great
� Or perhaps she looks intellectual.
Maybe she wears glasses or only smokes
her cigarettes half way down. Thus, you
would say something catchy, like,
wonder if you could help me out here. I
was just trying to figure out the cir-
cumference of the top of this beer bottle,
and I can't seem to recall the geometric
formula for doing so. It's worth a drink
if you can remember
� Naturally, if the girl's wearing an
ECU T-shirt, you don't have to worry
about saying anything intellectual.
� But unfortunately, it's not always
what you say that's most important. In
some cases, it's how you say it. Here
again, it's imperative to consider the
prospective pick-up's individual
background and breeding and cater the
line accordingly:
� Say she's from North Carolina (as it
seems many North Carolina girls are). In
this case, you'll want to remember to do
three things: Use your best drawl;
mispronounce at least half of your
words, and make all one-syllable words
at least two syllables. Say something
snappy, Uke, "Hey, sweet thang, vuh
wanna come over tuh my place an' listen
tuh the nu Mayul Tecyulis reckerd?"
� If she's from New Jersey, however,
you may have to change the line to
something a bit more enticing, like,
"Yo, sweethot, whaddya say yuze an'
me go fuh a ride in my cah an smash
some winduhs oah sumtin' Uke dat?"
� California girls, on the other hand,
fall easy prey to witty lines Uke, "Oh,

mood ring, you know, Uke, reflects the

over there. Like, you know, you must be

� And finaUy, of course, are Oriental
from past experience that the best lines,
the ones they appreciate the most, are
the simple Unes, like, for instance
"Herro?"
got some out in the car! Wanna see?
� Naturally, though, this is one of the
few sure-fire Unes. In most cases, a pro-
spective pick-up's likes and dislikes
won't be so obvious. This is where
you've got to be on your toes. Look for
clues and fit the line to the girl: Editor's Note: Mike Hushes a half

legs and dirt under her nails. Then, of N.C. sometimes wonder? if his

'Stars and Bars' Brought Down
ECU student Glenn
Maughan is at it
again. His most recent
protest has resulted in
the City of Greenville
stopping its practice
of flying the Con-
federate flag over the
Town Common.
The practice of fly-
ing the "Stars and
Bars which began
12 years ago when the
Town Common was
first opened, was
discontinued in June
shortly after
Maughan's letter of
protest was received
by city officials.
In April, Maughan
successfully petition-
ed Pitt County of-
ficials to amend a war
monument on the
lawn of the Pitt Coun-
ty Court House that
listed the names of
Pitt County citizens,
killed in past wars, ac-
cording to their color.
In the last two years,
Maughan has also led
a somewhat-less suc-
cessful effort to rid
ECU's campus of
military recruitors.
Maughan, a Viet-
nam veteran, wrote to
Greenville Mayor Per-
cy Cox and Greenville
City Manager Gail
Meeks on May 17 pro-
testing the citv's flv-
ing of the Con-
federate flag. "At
first glance, the 'Stars
and Bars' seem a
benign symbol of our
Southern heritage
Maughan wrote.
"Looking deeper into
history, one may
realize that this sym-
bol is not and can
never be a true
representative of the
South. From its incep-
tion during the Con-
federacy, the 'Stars
and Bars' imitated
racism and violence
Maughan con-
ducted his own
research at Joyner
Library on the
histories of both the
Confederate flag and
the British flag known
as the "Union Jack
which was also flown
over the Common.
The City of Greenville
has also discontinued
its use of the Union
Jack.
From his research,
Maughan discovered
that Greenville's ver-
sion of the Con-
federate flag was
never sanctioned for
official use by the
Confederacy nor was
it flown over Con-
federate government
buildings or grounds.
"There were official

damage earlier this
spring have asked to
be declared disaster
areas, allowing
farmers to apply for
low-interest, govern-
ment loans.
A late April freeze
was responsible for
most of the damage to
the state's fruit and
vegetable crops, the
hardest hit of which
was the sandhill's
peach crop.
�A Friday decision
by the N.C. Senate to
return a bill to com-
mittee that would
outlaw slavery has
raised the ire of farm
worker rights' ad-
vocates and civil liber-
tarians across the
state.
The heavily amend-
ed bill was already
passed in weakened
form by the House.
On Friday, the Senate
voted to return the
measure to the
Agricultural Commit-
tee chaired by Sen.
Vernon White,
D-Pitt. White claims
the bill is poorly writ-
ten and "very harsh"
because it woul 1
make it a felony for a
farmer to make a con-
tract with a migrant
crew leader who was
holding his workers in
involuntary ser-
vatude.
"The Farm Bureau
has been opposed to
this bill since it was
first introduced
said Joan Preiss, a
staff worker for the
National Farm
Worker Ministry. "It
is clear to me that they
and their legislators in
the General Assembly
either want to remove
all employer respon-
sibility for what goes
on or possibly to the
kill the bill
flags adopted by the
Confederate Con-
gress Maughan
wrote. "These were
variations of our flag,
and only those flags
flew with Congres-
sional approval
Moreover
Maughan continued,
"our (Greenville's)
version is a symbol of
war. It only saw use
during battle with a
few select troops or
flew over block-
runners and other
ships primarily used
for war
Maughan noted
that known-racist
organizations such as
the Ku Klux Klan
often chose the Con-
federate flag as their
symbol. "Given the
flags' past history
with a segregated and
racist South, it was a
simple matter for this
group to carry on with
tradition. It is indeed
tragic for our town to
be allied with the
KKK in this manner
Maughan said he
found no legal prece-
dent for the Con-
federate flag's ex-
istence in either the
General Statutes of
North Carolina nor in
Greenville law. "Such
research also ques-
tions the intent of fly-
ing Great Britain's
Union Jack as well
Maughan wrote.
City Manager
Meeks decided not to
confront Maughan,
whom she refered to
as a "very persistent
young man In a
short three-sentence
response, Meeks
acknowledged
Maughan's letter and
thanked him. "At
present, the American
flag, the North
Carolina flag and the
Betsy Ross flag are
the only ones on the
park Meeks wrote
in a letter dated June
10. "I greatly ap-
preciated your sugges-
tion, and the informa-
tion you provided
During a subse-
quent interview,
Meeks said she didn't
necessarily agree with
Maughan's points,
but rather she wanted
to take care of the
situation before it
ballooned. "The flags
have been flying there
for 12 years, and
we've never had any
comment about them
whatsoever Meeks
said. "I'm not sure
that the letter con-
vinced me, as much as
that (Maughan) is a
very persistent young
man and I knew what
had just happened
with the County of
Pitt and so I decid-
ed to quit flying those
flags
Meeks said the
original decision was
made by those in
charge of the Town
Common 12 years ago
to fly all the flags that
had ever flown over
Greenville. "It was
not something that I
felt merited a lot of
researching and so
forth to decide
whether he
(Maughan) was cor-
rect or not Meeks
said.
Maughan said he
was prompted to write
his letter to City of-
ficials after he read
about a similar case
where some students
at the University of
Mississippi successful-
ly petitioned universi-
ty officials to also quit
flying the Con-
federate flag on cam-
pus. Maughan said he
was pleased with
Meeks' decision.

'Pippin' Makes Debut
At Summer Theatre
Bv Mlkh HAMKR
si�f( V nlrr
( harlemagne speaks about the pros and cons of war in 'Pippin
Pippin, the first musical comedy production of
the East Carolina Summer Theatre season opened
last night to an enthusiastic full house.
Pippin was written bv Roger O. Hirson and
Stephen Schwartz. The comedy is based loosely on
the life of Charlemagne's oldest son who is an
idealist searching for a meaning to life among the
pleasures oi court, the glory of battle, the office of
Holy Roman Emperoi and the domesticality of a
famsh
The title role was ably played by Scott Evans, a
veteran of Broadway and films. John Kuhn played
a fast talking, high-stepping master of ceremonies,
and it was his energy that kept the production mov
ing from one scene to the next. Joey Pollock di
creditable job as C harlemagne, while Babs Winn
played Charlemagne's site, a lusty woman indeed
who brings Charlemagne to say at one point.
"Sometimes 1 wonder if the fornicating I'm getting
is worth the fornicating I'm getting
Two actresses who put in strong performai
were Susan Marrash-Minnerly, who played Pip
pin's grandmother and Sharon lawrence, �
played Catherine, a Aidow
The music and dancing are the high point of
musical comedies, and the music and dancing in
Pippin were no exception to the rule The orchestra
played well, the dancing as energetic, and the
singing was consistently strong This is a sexy ploy,
and the dancing and costumes contributed to the
atmosphere
There were a couple of technical problems last
night, but 1 will attribute them to opening nigl
problems For one thing. whenever the performers'
voices were amplified, the sound quaht became
somewhat tinm Also, at times the lighting seemed
be stiff and hesitant. There were a couple
times when the energy seemed to Hag a -
then the performers picked it right back up again
There are still tickets available for Pippin.

Pressure Boys Play New Intricate Rhythms
B MlkFHAMFR
segff Wnirr
The records being reviewed this
�j k come from varied
. lunds, but they do have
�hing in common. All three of
these records use intricate rhythm
Ahich are different from the stan-
dard rock rhythms. But then I
� 'here is a standard rock
rythm now ' It seems to me that
pop music rhvthms have been
heavily influenced by reggae,
funk, fusion, ska and other
distinctly African or South
African rythms in the past 2 or 3
years The musK on all three of
these records is ver danceable;
and let's face it, it you can't
dance
Speaking in lounges (Sire
Records) is T alking Heads' newest
record. The rythms on each cut of
this song will keep the listener
dancing. The recording quality is
excellent; the songs are lyrically
tight, and yet this isn't my
favorite Talking Heads' record I
didn't find myself singing some of
the songs to myself like I did on a
couple of their earlier records,
namelv Fear of Music and Talking
Heads '77.
But don't get me wrong I'm
not saying that there aren't some
good songs on this record,
because there are a couple ex-
cellent songs here in fact. My
favorite song of the record is
"This Must Be The Place (Naive
Melody) Here David Byrne,
who studied conceptual design at
the Rhode Island School of
Design, has achieved a grand suc-
cess. He has wnten a love song,
and a unique hymn to the joys of
home life. Considering how many
love songs are written and record-
ed, this is quite a teat M favorite
line from the song goes, "Out of
all those kinds of people You got
a face with a view
Another excellent song on this
record is "Pull Up the Roots
This tune sports a fine bass line
from Tina Weymouth, a great
percussion break by guest percus-
sion Ralph De Jesus, and some
great harmonies on the bridge.
Two of the songs that I liked
� cry much were "Swamp" and
"Girlfriend is Better The
tormer features Byrne, a master
� paradox, giving a voodoo-like
warning about the dangers of the
materialistic world and juxtapos-
ing that against buoyant chorus
that sings "Hi, hi, hi, hi, hi
"Girlfriend is Better" has an an-
them to it that is reminiscent of
some of the earlier Talking Heads
music.
REVIEW
Eddy Grant's second release in
the U.S Killer on the Rampage
(Portrait Records), is already a
commercial success even though it
has only been released a short
while. Grant deserves his success
because he has crafted ten good
songs for this record. The
qualities of the recording, produc-
tion and melody are first class on
every cut.
Looking at such song titles as
"War Party "Killer of the
Rampage and "Another
Revolutionary one might think
that here is another political artist
in the tradition of Bob Marley.
But such is not the case; Iddv
Grant is a pop singer � a good
pop singer � but he is not another
Maries bv anv means. Grant's
lvrics are certainly his weakest
area.
The songs on this record are
tailor-made tor portable radios
and impromptu dancing on the
street or at the beach. I can evi-
sion a group of young males danc
ing to "Killer on the Rampage"
for their female cohorts. My
favorite lyrics are those on
"Drop, Baby Drop" where drant
sings, "Mv heart does a tango
With every little move you make
I lovt you like a mango Wish we
could make it every da
Good melodies are certamK
Fddy Grant's strongest asset
and thev are consistently singable
over the predominant reggae
beat. Now I'm a sucker for a
calypso song, and so I really enjoy
"Latin Love Affair This song is
perfect for the tourist set and will
likely be learned by many of the
hotel bands in the islands.
If their first record. Jump
Jump Jump!
(A-Root -Da-Doot Doo Records),
is any indication of success, the
Pressure Boys from Chapel Hill
could be the hottest new music
band in this region. The record
was produced and engineered by
Mitch Easter who has recently
done excellent work with the DB's
and R.EM. Once again he has ad-
ded a touch that tust may get this
first effort some nationwide atten-
tion.
If these guys don't suffer from
early burnout. 1 predict success.
Not only are they tight musicians,
but they also have drive and ambi-
tion. How else could thev have
booked a month's tour up the
bast Coast and in the midwest
without the help of an agent?
The seven songs on the I P are
in the pop ska realm � eminently
danceable music to be sure. The
band uses a 3 piece horn section in
all of their arrangements. The
Pressure Bovs remind me of such
British bands as Madness, The
Selecter and The Specials.
The fresh sound and the energv
are the best things about this
record. The lyrics aren't the most
exciting, but they are better than
average for a young band Mv
favorite song on this record is call-
ed "A-Okav " The song begins
with an exciting horn line that is
played over a fast ska calypso
beat. Here the boys have
something to say of a timelv
political nature. "On the dav they
call me I will run awa 1 said I
will stav 1 can't kill my brothers
ain't no wav 1 am A Okav '
Another very gOvi song or.
Jump Jump Jump! is
"Nothing To Sav" which features
some commendable vocal work by
John Plvmale and a fine trumpet
solo bv Neil Barry.
I'm not sure where they would
plav, but I certainlv hope the
Pressure Boys can come to Green-
ville at some point and play some
of their exciting music for our
Saturday night dance partv.

THE EAST CAROLINIAN
JULY 6. 19t3
Greenville Musicians Perform At Eno Festival
By MIKE HAMER
Staff WrHcr
Despite the hot sun
and the intermittent
showers, people from
all over the state were
having a grand time at
the 1983 Festival for
the Eno which took
place at the Eno River
Park on the North
End of Durham this
Sunday and Monday,
July 3rd and 4th.
I have attended Eno
River Festivals in the
past, and I would
have to say that this
year's festival was
bigger and better than
ever.
All profits which
are made from the
Festival went toward
the purchase of more
land along the Eno
River. The purpose of
the Eno River Park is
to preserve the Eno
River as a wild river in
an urban setting.
Ms. Keristan Nygard
of Durham was the
coordinator of tie
Festival. She coor-
dinated the more than
600 volunteers who
helped to make the
event possible. Mr.
Peter Sprague,
volunteer
photographer for the
Eno Festival said,
�'What impressed me
the most about the
whole Festival was
that it was so tightly
run � completely by
volunteers. I don't
know if a paid staff
could have done as
well. He added that,
"I was really impress-
ed that the whole
community pitched in
in so many ways
Several Greenville
musicians par-
ticipated in the
Festival including the
Green Grass Clog-
gers, Mike 'Lightnin'
Wells, and the Sting
Rays who backed up
Beaufort's Bluesman
Big Boy Henry. Miss
Nancy Spainhour,
one of Greenville's
Green Grass Cloggers
commented on the
Festival's high quali-
ty. I thought
everything was really
goodshe said,
"including the site,
the food, the music
and the dancing She
also said , "I thought
the crowd really en-
joyed our dancing,
and I enjoyed hearing
the Red Clay
Ramblers, the Wild
Goose Chasers and
the Hollow Rock Str-
ing Band. We danced
five times yesteday, so
we really worked
hard
Some of the many
performers who
played at the Festival
were Touchstone, The
Gospel Jubilators,
Lise Uyanik and the
Mobile City Band,
The Country Squires,
Red Herring, Rebecca
and the New Tones,
The Pirate Heads,
Woodchucks in
Babylon and The
Obie Family among
many others. All of
the performers were
from North Carolina.
My favorite perfor-
mance Monday was
the Chuck Davis
Dance Company who
performed some col-
orful African dancing
and involved the au-
dience in every part of
their performance.

works with its members by help-

and by giving them the confidence
that their efforts can make a dif-

"Their theologically grounded
views of what a decent world
should be makes them one of the
strongest potential forces in this
country to help change the direc-
tion we seem to be going right

The "direction" Healey is
referring to is not a good one. He
claims that increased U.S.
military spending and arms expor-
ting are making the world less safe
and are "helping to perpetuate the
most extraordinary poverty" the
world has known.

According to Healey, the
United States has taken the lead in
the arms race for many years. He
also claims the U.S. encourages
arms sales to poor nations which
can't afford them, thereby
worsening the poverty.
Healey also addressed the issue
of the Soviet threat. "We don't
think it's a question of trusting
the Russians or not trusting the
Russians he said. "We don't
have to trust them in the sense
that we don't think they're crazy
� they're not out to blow up the
world any more than we are �
and that decent arms control
negotiations and something like
the freeze is appropriate
Healey noted that Russian
leaders have already endorsed the
freeze. "They're for a freeze �
let's test it � let the U.S. propose
it to them and see if they're
bluffing or not
The coalition's current project
is a campaign opposing U.S.

THE EAST CAROLINIAN

JULY 6, 1983

Festival Offers More Than Just Fun
By CINDY PLEASANTS
ECU Intramurals Director Dr.
Wayne Edwards looks a little
weary these days. But who can
blame him?
Edwards has just spent the past
two weeks making life a little
easier for 162 athletes at the Na-
tional Sports Festival in Colorado
Springs. But don't misunders-
tand. Serving as the festival's
team handball coordinator is one
of Edwards' most enjoyable
duties. And it's not too difficult
to tell just how much he enjoyed
participating.
"We had a very successful
sports festival this year Ed-
wards said with excitement.
"Total ticket sales were over
S800.000
After Edwards proceeded to ex-
plain the sports festival's im-
pressive revenue earnings, he
reflected back on the two-week
stay and the performances of
several ECU athletes.
"1 don't know of any school
that could boast of having four
athletes in the festival Edwards
said. "That's definitely something
to be proud of. In the last three
festivals, we've had 14 different
athletes participate
One of those athletes is former
Pirate basketball star Sam Jones.
At last year's Fesival in Indian-
napolis, Jones was a member of
the South team handball squad �
the gold medal winner.
Since then, Jones has played on
the U.S. National Handball team
and has travelled to Europe on
two occasions to compete
Although Jones made her
presence known at last year's
games, she became an even
stronger force during this year's
competition. "There is no com-
parison from Sam's play last year
to this year Edwards said.
"Last year, she played on natural
ability, but this year she played on
handball ability
Jones, along with ECU team-
mates Judy Ausherman and
Maureen Buck, joined their team-
mates in a fight for the gold
medal. But after a long battle, the
South squad was defeated, 21-20,
in double overtime.
During the championship,
Jones scored four goals and
finished with 15 goals overall for
the festival. In one game, Jones
scored three goals in a row. "She
has much more confidence in
herself Edwards said. "She was
disappointed that they lost
because this was a much better
team than last year's. They were
expected to win
Jones, who will now return to
Lake Placid, N.Y and continue
to play on the National Handball
team, is a sure candidate for the
1984 U. S. Olympic team. If she is
chosen, Jones will be the first
ECU athlete ever to compete in
the Olympics. "Unless she is in-
jured, I have no doubt that Sam
will be at the Olympics in Los
Angeles Edwards said. Jones,
who is now at a basketball camp
at Campbell College, will return
to Lake Placid on July 27.
Another force in the South's
final game against the East was
Maureen Buck. Although known
for her defensive play, Buck was
sidelined as a top reserve.
However, when the South's
leading scorer, Carmen Forrest,
was injured early in the second
half, Buck came in to take her
place.
The championship loss was
especially bitter for Buck since she
says she won't be attending
another festival. "We really
should've won Buck said. "We
had them in the first half
At the end of the first regula-
tion period, the South squad led,
12-11. But the second period was
a constant struggle for the lead.
And as it turned out, no one suc-
ceeded. Buck explained.
"We would go back and forth,
and then we were tied. They got
the last shot, but Sam (Jones)
stole the ball. We had 30 seconds
left, but they called Sam for
charging. Everyone thought it was
a poor call
In the first of two five-minute
overtime periods, the East scored
two goals. In the second overtime,
the South squad scored once but
were unable to get off another
goal.
Buck was amazed at the caliber
of players in comparison to last
year's team. "This team was so
much better she said. "We had
six national players this time, and
we beat every other team by a
good margin. In a previous scrim-
mage, we beat East (Gold Medal
team) by four.
"There's no doubt that we were
favored overall, but that's the way
it goes. Personally, I had a fan-
tastic experience, and I'd advise
anyone to go and play under
whatever sport they can
ECU graduate Stan Joyner's
South squad didn't fair quite as
well as the women's team. But
Joyner was able to enjoy being a
part of the festival for the first
time. According to Edwards,
Joyner played in two of four
games. Overall, the South placed
fourth after defeating the East
squad by two. "Stan did very
well Edwards said. "He'll be
back in 1985 if he stays with it
While Edwards and the hand-
ball members were located at the
Air Force Academy's 4,500-seat
hockey rink, ECU's Sylvia Bragg
was playing basketball just 30
miles away at the Olympic train-
ing center. Bragg, who was
selected by her team to serve as
co-captain, scored a total of 34
points at the festival.
A member of the East squad,
Bragg's teari beat the North
squad in order to capture the
bronze medal. One of Bragg's
teammates scored with just three
seconds left to put the East ahead,
91-90.
Andruzzi was able to watch
Bragg play in the first two games
and was proud of her player's per-
formance. "She did a nice job out
there Andruzzi said. "She
represented ECU very well. Both
coaches and players had good
things to say about her.
"I think she really appreciated
the experience. She practiced hard
before she left, and she played
hard
Did Bragg appreciate the ex-
perience? "Oh yes she said. "I
got to meet so many people, and
the opening ceremony was just
beautiful said a beaming Bragg.
"Everyone treated us very well,
and everything was free. Even
video games. I never played video
games before 1 went, but now I'm
pretty good
Both Buck and Bragg agree that
an athlete can get a little spoiled at
the National Sports Festival, Free
video games? No wonder Dr. Ed-
wards needs a rest.

Former Pirate basketball star Sam Jones is a definite candidate for the
1984 Olympics, which will be held in Los Angeles, Calif.
Brooks, Jones Added To ECU Football Staff I Roya
Pirate News
East Carolina University foot-
ball Coach Ed Emory has added
two more coaches to his Pirate
staff.
Wavcrly Brooks, who has been
the defensive coordinator and
recruiting coordinator at Marshall
since 1980, will coach the defen-
sive ends.
David Jones, a part-time coach
for the past two seasons, was
elevated to noseguard coach.
After a disappointing trip to the
Pan-American game try-outs,
former Pirate basketball star
Mary Denkler said she is hoping
to continue her career somewhere
in Europe.
Denkler, who was competing
against 200 girls for one of 11
spots on the Pan-American team,
was eliminated in the first of five
cuts. More than 90 girls didn't
make the first cut.
Despite the letdown, Denkler
still enjoyed the trip to Colorado
Springs. "I've never seen that
much talent in one place
Denkler said. "It was a great op-
portunity, and I enjoyed my stay
even though I was disappointed
Denkler will graduate from
ECU after this summer session.
Cindy Pleasant
A Look Inside
Afterwards, she will be keeping
her fingers cross through the
month of August. That's when
her agent will let her know
whether or not she'll be headed
for Europe. "I have a one-year
extension on my scholarship
(NCAA graduate award), so I'd
really like to go. 1 guess I'll just
have to wait and see, but I know
I'll be sweating it out in August
Another former Pirate basket-
ball star Laurie Sykes will serve as
a recruiter on Cathy Andruzzi's
staff this upcoming season. Sykes,
who played at ECU from 1979 to
1981, was one of the team's
leading scorers and served as a
point guard.
National Update
Guillermos Vilas of Argentina
will be back to defend his title for
the next few weeks at the U.S. Pro
Tennis Championships in Boston.
Vilas received a one-year
suspension a month ago for tak-
ing under-the-table payments, and
was surprisingly refused a right to
appeal.
Vilas has 30 days now,
however, and says he will appeal.
Meanwhile, Vilas is free to play
until a final decision is made, and
that could be a while.
Once Vilas does appeals, the
whole issue goes to a third-person
arbitrator. Vilas and International
Professional Tennis Council must
agree upon that person. The ar-
bitrator then hears the case and
makes the decision.
Also, Yannick Noah, who is
serving a six-week suspension for
not showing up at a tourney in
May, has decided not to appeal.
Some 1,200 athletes, relatives
and admirers gathered for funeral
services Monday at Haughton
Louisiana High School, where his
athletic career first blossomed.
Delaney, who was a star runn-
ingback and the 1981 AFC's
"Rookie of the Year played for
the Kansas City Chiefs of the
NFL. He died last Wednesday
while trying to save three children
from drowning in a rain-filled pit
in nearby Monroe, La. Delaney
and two of the children drowned,
while the third child swam to safe-
ty.
Americans Bill Scanlon and
Sandy Mayer were first-round
winners in the Swiss Open Tennis
Tournament Tuesday. Scanlon
defeated Sashi Menon of India,
6-4, 6-4. Mayer struggled past
Manuel Orantes of Spain, 6-4,
6-4.
The National League outlasted
the American League, 6-5, Tues-
day in the Old Timer's game in
Chicago. Former Cub teammates
Billy Williams and Don Kessinger
were the National league's hitting
stars. Williams had a two-run
homer in the second inning and
doubled off of Don Larsen to
snap a 5-5 tie in the third inning
John Harrington and Phil Ver-
chota, both members of the
Olympic Gold Medal team in
1980, were among 27 players nam-
ed to the 1984 U.S. National Ice
Hockey team yesterday.
Head Coach Lew Vairo also
picked two of this year's top NHL
draft choices to represent the U.S.
at the '84 Winter Olympics in
Yugoslavia.
Vairo is naturally hoping that
Brian Lawton and Pat LaFon-
taine will hold off signing their
NHL contracts until the end of
the games.
With thunderstorms wrecking
the schedule at this year's Western
Open Golf Tournament outside of
Chicago, golfers were forced to
play the final 36 holes of the
tourney yesterday. And Mark Mc-
Cumber is one player that should
be glad it turned out that way.
McCumber used those 36 holes to
make up a seven-stroke deficit
and win the Open. McCumber
edged Tom Watson out by one
shot.
Budd Baker's Ford ran out of
gas Monday. And unfortunately.
Baker was right in the middle of a
race � the Firecracker-400 Stock
car race � to be exact. Baker had
just one-quarter of a mile left at
the Daytona International Speed-
way when his car began slowing
down. The car was able to coast
home just three seconds ahead of
second place Morgan Shepherd's
Buick. The win ended Baker's
62-race losing streak.
All-Star Clash Loaded

Women's Basketball Coach Cathy Andruzzi is holding the largest camp she's ever had at Minges Coliseum
week. 137 campers and 17 coaches are taking part in this week's team camp.
Andruzzi Camp Largest Ever
Three-on-three moves, pick and
roll, shot selection, man-to-man
defenseWhew! What a way to
spend a summer vacation. But 137
campers have chosen to do just
that all week long at Cathy An-
druzzi's team basketball camp.
18 high school teams and
coaches from across the state have
gathered here at ECU for a week
of pure basketball. The camp,
which began Sunday and will end
Friday, begins at 8 a.m. each mor-
ning and continues throughout
the day until 9 p.m.
"This is the largest camp we've
ever had' Aadrugai said.
"We've been having camps for
five years now, and our camps
have increased year in and year
out. We're really pleased with this
year's teams
According to Andruzzi, the
high school coaches and players
are serious about basketball.
"These campers played with their
teammates during the year, so the
level of basketball is much bet-
ter she said. They come here
and see what they need to work on
as a team and go from there. It
gives them somewhere to start
The camp also gives Andruzzi
the opportunity to spot possible
recruits. "Right now, we see two
people here we would be in-
terested in recruiting. Many of
these girls could play for Division
II and III schools, but we usually
find one who could definitely play
for us
The Head Coach quickly
pointed out that the camp was not
a "babysitting service and that
the girls have been very attentive
during practice sessions. "We
have a good time, but we work
hard. All of us here, the coaches
and the workers, get excited about
what's going on
The Montreal Expos are the
most well-represented team in
tonight's All-Star game with four
starters in the National League
lineup � first baseman Al Oliver,
catcher Gary Carter and out-
fielders Andre Dawson and Tim
Raines. For Oliver, it is his first
starting assignment in the annual
clash of the leading vote-getters.
Although Pete Rose was the
starting first baseman in last
year's game, Oliver played a key
role as he was the only National
League player to collect two hits.
Joining Oliver as first-time
starters on the NL squad are Los
Angeles Dodger second baseman
Steve Sax and shortstop Ozzie
Smith of the St. Louis Cardinals.
Rounding out the NL lineup is
third baseman Mike Schmidt of
the Philadelphia Phillies and the
Atlanta Braves' Dale Murphy,
who will join Raines and Dawson
in the outfield.
On the American League side,
every starter has started in a
previous All-Star game. The
Milwaukee Brewers' shortstop
Robin Yount barely outdistanced
California first baseman Rod
Carew for the leading AL vote-
getter. Joining Yount and Carew
in the infield are second baseman
Manny Trillo of Cleveland and
third baseman George Brett of
Kansas City. Milwaukee's Ted
Simmons will be behind the plate.
In the outfield, California's
Reggie Jackson was slated to
start, but bad to withdraw due to
bruised ribs. Milwaukee's Bra
Oglivie will take Jackson's place
on the roster. Dave Winfield of
the New York Yankees and
California's Fred Lynn will be
starting in the outfield.
The pitchers for the American
League are: Dave Stieb of Toron-
to, Rick Honeycutt of Texas, Dan
Quisenberry of Kansas City, Bob
Stanley of Boston, Matt Young of
Seattle, Rick Sutcliffe of
Cleveland, Aurelio Lopez of
Detroit and Tippy Martinez of
Baltimore.

Valenzuela of Los Angeles, Mario
Soto of Cincinnati, Gary Lavelle
and Atlee Hammaker of San
Fransisco, Pascual Perez of
Atlanta, Jesse Orosco of New
York, Bill Dawley of Houston,
Dave Dravecky of San Diego and
Lee Smith of Chicago.
On Monday, New York Yankee
starter Dave Righetti threw the
first no-hitter in the major leagues
in almost two years, as the 22-year
old struck out Boston's Wade
Boggs for the final out in New
York's 4-0 triumph.
Righetti, who was the AL
Rookie-Of-The-Year in 1981, now
has a record of 10-3 and is con-
spicuous by his absence from the
All-Star lineup.
The no-hitter was the first in the
majors since Nolan Ryan no-hit
the Los Angeles Dodgers back on
Sept. 26, 1981, and the first one in
the American League since
Cleveland's Len Barker threw a
perfect game against the Toronto
Blue Jays on May 15 of the same
year.
The last Yankee pitcher to
pitch a no-hitter was Don Lar-
son's perfect game in Game 5 of
the 1956 World Series against the
Brooklyn Dodgers.
The Dodgers' Steve Howe, who
was recently released from a drug-
recovery center after admitting to
a cocaine habit, was fined $57,000
by Baseball Commissioner Bowie
Kuhn. It is believed to be the
largest player fine in baseball
history.
Howe had entered CareUnit in
nearby Orange County on May 29
after admitting that he had started
using cocaine again. He was
originally treated for the problem
last winter in the The Meadows a
facility outside Phoenix.

"I still don't think
the kid knew what I
was saying the
28-year old pitcher
said Thursday night.
"I actually got some
pressure off on him,
but I don't think he
knew what was hap-
pening. It was just
one of those things
There will be no
more talking to
baseballs. The truth is
as simple as that.
There will be no more
Time magazine
covers, no more guest
shots on "Sesame
Street no more
comebacks. The pass-
ing carnival ride that
Fidrych grabbed and
allowed to drag him
everywhere possible
has taken a final, too-
hard turn and left him
back in the world.
He was released in
the afternoon on
Wednesday. He went
to the doubleheader
on Wednesday night,
sitting and watching
and wondering why
he couldn't throw
baseballs as hard as
the people who were
still doing that for a
living. There was a
party in his room at
night, two bottles of
wine brought by cat-
cher Roger LaFran-
cois. There was an
early-morning plane
Thursday.
"There comes a
time when you have to
pinch yourself and say
that this is it
Fidrych said. "The
time had come. I did
it. To me, I'm
retired
He was the ex-
clamation point of en-
thusiasm in a
polyester game. He
not only threw a
fastball that did
strange things when it
approached the plate,
he exulted in what he
did. He reveled. He
was 19-7, the starter
in the All-Star game,
the absolute darling
of sport. The magic
simply disappeared
after that year and
never carne back.
"Do you have
regrets?" he was ask-
ed. "Do you think
about that year?"
"I think about 10
years Fidrych said.
"That's how long 1
played professional
baseball. I played
four and one-half
years in the majors,
six years in the
minors. Not one year.
"People say I was
cheated. How was I
cheated? I played in
the major leagues. I
played in the All-Star
game. I did everything
there was to do, ex-
cept play in the World
Series. That's all. 1
didn't play in the
World Series
The script could
have written so much
better so easily, but
what the heck? He
hurt the knee in 1977.
He started throwing
with a different mo-
tion. He hurt the arm.
What the heck? He
tried.
"The way I look at
it this is what the
game and the people
rewarded me he
said, sitting on the
deck of his farmhouse
that has a view that
stretches all the wa r
to Boston. "This is
what came from the -
game. From the peo-
ple who helped and �
cheered me
"The question I ;
had was 'How can I -
reward the game and
the people who
rewarded me?' The
answer was that I kept
playing. I kept trying.
1 didn't give up.
That he did. Trying
with the Detroit
Tigers until they
wouldn't let him try
anymore. Coming
back, trying with the
Red Sox. Working
with Red Sox physi-
cian Arthur Pappas,
spending last year and
this year in
Pawtucket. Trying to
get back. Trying for
that one more major
league game.
"That's what I
wanted he said,
holding a finger up.
"That one game. I
had a bet with the
trainer in Pawtucket
that I'd do it. A case
of beer if 1 pitched
that one game. Now 1
owe him a case of
beer. Because I failed.
Royals Sign Perry,
To Be His Eighth
Major League Stop
KANSAS CITY,
Mo. (UPI) � The
Kansas City Royals
annoucned Tuesday
they had obtained
Gaylord Perry, a
44-year-old veteran of
763 games. The
Royals are the eighth
major league team in
Perry's career.
"I'm very excited
about it, it feels
great Perry said in a
telephone interview
from his Williamston,
N.C farm. "When
someone steps down
and says, 'We want
him it makes me feel
good
Perry was released
late last month by the
Seattle Mariners and
was awarded to the
Royals on a waiver
claim, a team
spokesman said.
Perry will bring a
310-261 lifetime
record to Kansas City
when he joins the
team in its first post-
All-Star break
workout, iie will be in
uniform Friday when
the Royals host the
New York Yankees.
"I was just on the
phone with them
Perry said. "I'll leave
Thursday morning
and get there for a
four o'clock workout.
I hope to be pitching
pretty soon, I've been
working out here and
working on the
farm
Perry hinted that
Kansas City's place in
the standing might
make it a better place
to play that Seattle.
The Royals are in
fourth place, four and
one-half games
behind the division-
leading Texas
Rangers, while the
Mariners are in last
place with the worst
record in baseball.
"It's a winning
ballclub and
anywhere you win it's
a lot better and a lot
happier Perry said,
adding that he has
played before with
Kansas City Manager
Dick Howser and
Royals pitching coach
Cloyd Boyer.
Perry also likes the
idea of being closer to
his farm. "With the
family, we are looking
forward to it. It is
close enough to home
that they can drive
there in a day and a
half Perry said.
The 44-year-old
right-hander was 3-10
with a 4.94 earned run
average this year
before being
designated for
reassignment by the
Mariners, his seventh
major league team.
Perry began his pro-
fessional career in
1958 at St. Cloud,
Minn in the Nor-
thern League and
played his first major
league game with San
Francisco in 1962.
He has won 20 or
more games in a
season five times, the
latest with San Diego
in 1978 when his 21-6
record and 2.72 ERA
earned him the Cy
Young Award as the
National League's top
pitcher.
To make room for
Perry on the 25-man
roster, the Royals sent
catcher Russ Stephans
to their Triple-A af-
filiate in Omaha.

THE EAST CAROLINIAN
JULY 6, 1983
USC Pushes
'83 Schedule
LO
IWfcS
ER
unspMWito
South Carolina
Athletic Director Bob
Marcum won't call
the Gamecocks' 1983
football schedule the
toughest in the land,
but considering the
team is coming off a
4-7 season and is
under the direction of
a new coach it may be
the most challenging.
The 11-game slate
includes Georgia,
Clemson, Southern
Cal, North Carolina,
Notre Dame, and
Florida State. The se-
cond echelon is more
a match talent-wise,
but still includes
teams that are not
pushovers � Loui-
siana State, North
Carolina State, Duke,
Navy and Miami of
Ohio.
"It would be a
challenging schedule
for some teams well
established in winning
from the standpoint
of going 9-2 for a
number of seasons
said Marcum. "I
think even with that
kind of consistency it
would be tough but
for a team in this
situation
Marcum, presiding
over the athletic
department for the se-
cond football season,
is quick to point out
that he had nothing to
do with the schedule.
Football scheduling is
done years ahead, and
the Gamecocks cur-
rent predicament, he
said, is the result of
contracts signed by
Paul Dietzel. Marcum
is currently drawing
up the schedules for
the late 1980s.
"I would say this is
more entertainment
than any one team
needs Marcum said.
"You have to be
careful you don't get
overscheduled He
said advance season
ticket sales are up
despite the obvious
dangers the
Gamecocks face in be-
ing routed.
"1 think our fans
are excited about the
schedule Marcum
added. "I think
they're all wondering
how we're going to
do
At home the
Gamecocks face
Southern Cal
(possibly the first time
they've ever played in
this area), Clemson,
Notre Dame, North
Carolina, North
Carolina State, Navy,
and Miami of Ohio.
Marcum noted that
scheduling is a game
that often determines
whether you make a
post-season bowl ap-
pearance. At North
Carolina for instance,
outside the ACC the
Tar Heels, who aspire
to finish in the top 10,
face William Mary
Miami of Ohio, and
Memphis State. Those
are teams the Tar
Heels are expected to
beat and therein lies
the danger. It's hard
to get ready for teams
you're supposed to
beat and even more
difficult to explain
why if you lose.
The Tar Heels' cur-
rent slate of games are
the work of former
Coach Bill Dooley,
who put them on the
road to football
respectability, paving
the way with his
scheduling.
But North Carolina
not alone. North
is
Carolina State, a team
itself in a rebuilding
era, has dropped its
long series with Penn
State, and this year
faces East Carolina,
The Citadel, Ap-
palachian State and
South Carolina out-
side the ACC. The
Citadel and Ap-
palachian State both
belong to the NCAA's
1-AA, and Marcum
said that can cause
financial problems.
"You have to be
careful scheduling
1-AA schools he
said. "Television net-
works won't pick up
games that cross
classifications
One reason, he
said, is that "they
generally are not very
good footbal games
