and staff reports
It looked fairly routine � a
report of the Calendar Committee
recommending approval of the
University calendar and examina-
tion schedules for the 1986-87
academic year. It was five pages
But there, halfway down the
first page, was October 12-19
(Sunday to Sunday) for the fall
break in 1986.
It slowly dawned on the Faculty
Senate that this was something
new � unprecedented � for ECU
which has had a fall break only
for the past two years. It began by
administrative order for a two-
day fall break in 1982. They notic-
ed, too, that the opening date for
the 1986 fall semester � August
18 � seemed to be earlier than
usual. What, faculty senators
began to ask, is going on?
With floor discussion indicating
a feeling that a full week's fall
break probably wasn't a good
idea, the Senate approved without
dissent a motion by Malcolm
South (English) to send the calen-
dar back to committee for further
But Ruth Jones (Business) mak-
ing the presentation for the calen-
dar committee had come
prepared. She had, she said, an
alternate calendar prepared "just
in case
Jones said the committee "had
heard" that other universities
were taking week-long fall breaks
and that "some favored it In
addition, she said, "some faculty
had requested it The committee
was aware, she added, that it was
"a new and different kind of
thing" to propose for ECU.
Also, she said, there was a
"feeling that it was not likely to
be accepted. The mood that day
was very definitely against the
week-long fall break So she had
brought another calendar pro-
viding for a two-day fall break.
The alternate also provided for
three days � Wednesday, Thurs-
day and Friday � for Thanksgi
ing and a semester-opening date
of August 20.
South said he felt it would be
unwise to "try to make a calendar
on the floor" although it ap-
peared that the alternate proposal
was more suitable to the Senate.

McDonald House Will Benefit Many
MI Medkal Rotrw Editor
Sylvia Morris is a parent who
knows the anxiety, fear and
loneliness of being hours away
from home with a seriouslv ill
Nearly five years have passed
since her son Jason had surgery at
Pitt County Memorial Hospital to
remove a malignant tumor in his
jaw, but the memories of lonely
bedside vigils while he was
hospitalized and long trips to
Greenville for chemotherapy still
easily bring back the tears that
were once so frequent.
Today Jason is a healthy
13-year-old who visits the ECU
pediatric oncology clinic only
twice a year for a check-up. But
because of her family's painful ex-
perience, Sylvia Morris plans to
be an active volunteer for Green-
ville's new Ronald McDonald
House, a facility she calls a
"wonderful idea that would have
meant so much to us
"A Ronald McDonald House
would have meant a lot to us back
then says Mrs. Morris.
"Although it would have eased
the financial burden, I think the
biggest benfit would have come
from the opportunity to share our
feelings and experience with other
families who were going through
similar situations. Having a home
away from home like that would
have been wonderful
That's just about the way sup-
porters of a Ronald McDonald
House describe the facility: a tem-
porary home for choronically ill
children and their families. Of-
ficials fo the McDonald's Corp.
and the ECU School of Medicine
announced in February tht Green-
ville would become the site of a
new house for Eastern North
McDonald's has approved the
use of the Ronald McDonald
House trademark for the building
and will contribute $200,000
toward its construction. Plans are
to build the house off Move
Bouldevard near r reenillle Villa
Nursing Home on a two-acre tract
owned by Pitt County. The coun-
ty has agreed to lease the land for
the house at a cost of one dollar
per year.
The house is expected to
welcome its first guests in late
1985, said Dr. C. Tate Holbrook,
director of pediatric
hematologyoncology at the
medical school.
The first Ronald McDonald
House � frequently described as
"the house that love built" � was
established in Philadelphia in the
early 1970s. There are now more
than 50 houses throughout the
United States and several foreign
countries. The international net-
work serves more than 200,000
people a year.
The houses provide a warm,
homey environment for the
relatives treatment for chronic il-
lnesses such as cancer, heart
disease, cystic fibroses, kidney

disease or prematurity. Patients
with such illnesses often have to
travel long distances to major
medical centers for treatment that
can be extensive and time-
"The Ronald McDonald House
provides the sick child's family a
place to stay with the atmosphere
of a home and not a motel room
or patient room Holbrook said.
"Children receiving out-patient
treatment, such as chemotherapy,
may also stay at the house and
meet other patients thier age who
may have similar conditions.
For a modest fee � about $5 a
night � the house provides
families with a bedroom and ac-
cess to a community kitchen, a
family room and other areas of
mutual enjoyment. The guest fee
can be reduced or waived in hard-
ship cases.
The Ronald McDonald House
will be supervised by a full-time,
live-in house manager, Holbrook
said. Operations will be governed
by Children's Services of Eastern
North Carolina Inc a private,
non-profit corporation whose
board of directors is made up of
parents, medical center represen-
tatives and McDonald's officials.
Because the cost of the house is
estimated to be as high as
$500,000, Holbrook said addi-
tional funds will be needed from
sources in the region. He expects
the stongest effort will come from
parents like Sylvia Morris and
friends of children who have
undergone extended medical
treatment. He said these people
have a special understanding of
what an asset a Ronald McDonald
House will be to Eastern North
The volunteer group, which
now has more than 150 members,
is led by Mrs. Mary Ann Harris of
Tarboro, the mother of a young
cancer victim. The group has ap-
plied for a $25,000 grant from
Ray A. Kroc Children's Fund,
which was established by Kroc,
McDonald's founder, to provide
money for start-up expenses for a
Ronald McDonald program.
In addition. McDonald's will
provide ongoing financial supper:
from franchise and companv-
owned McDonald's restaurant s
across the state.
The recent expansion of
pediatric services at the School of
Medicine and Pitt County
Memorial Hospital has made
Greenville an ideal location for a
Roanld McDonald House, said
Holbrook. At the medical school
the extensive services available for
pediatric cancer patients will be
enhanced this summer with the
opening of the new radiation
therapy center.
Durham is presently the only
North Carolina city with a Ronald
McDonald House, although
McDonald's has made com-
mitments to Chapel Hill and
Winston-Salem to support houses
in those cities.

James LeRoy Smith
(Philosophy) and Stella Daugher-
ty (Mathematics) won re-election
as the chair and vice chair respec-
tively of the Faculty Senate at the
1984-85 organizational meeting.
The secretary, Martha Engelke
(Nursing)chose not to be a can-
didate for re-election. She was
succeeded by Nancy K. Mayberry
(Foreign Languages, who won
election over John Conner
Atkeson (History) 32 to 20.
Smith, recently elected
chairperson of the UNC Faculty
Assembly for 1984-85, spoke of
the importance of faculty com-
munication through the system-
wide Faculty Assembly during a
three-minute address to the Facul-
ty Senate prior to voting. The two
candidates nominated for faculty
chair made three minute talks.
By secret ballot, Smith won
over John D. Longhill (Business)
42 to 11. Daugherty won over Bea
Chauncey (Music) 39 to 14. There
are 56 voting members of the
Faculty Senate including five ex-
officio officials who hold voting
In other elections for committee
posts, two of the three persons
nominated from the floor won
seats on the Faculty Affairs Com-
mittee, which is embroiled in an
effort to recommend a university
policy on the status of non-
tenured facuulty in fixed-term
positions. The two floor nominees
who won seats, Carl Adler
(Physics) and Walter Pories
(Medicine) have been active in
discussions and debate of the con-
tinuing issue.
A third vacancy on the FAC
was filled by re-election of Mar-
sha Ironsmith (Psychology) for a
three-year term. Pories was
elected to replace Rosalie Haritun
(Music) as an alternate.
Belinda Lee (Nursing), Madge
McGrath (Allied Health) and
William Bloodworth (English)
won the three three-year terms
open on the Teaching Effec-
tiveness Committee in a field of
four. Lee was nominated from the
Five nominees selected by the

Olympics In Jeopardy,
Team Official Predicts
"Now look, I am rare this is all just some big misunderstanding. I just
look like the driver of that car. Hey, you look lost like that macho cop

ECU Newi Bureau
With sports powerhouses
Russia and East Germany out of
the Summer Olympics and some
other communist countries ex-
pected to follow suit, the level of
competition won't be the same
and may jeopardize the future of
the games, says an Olympic sport
official from ECU.
Dr. Wayne Edwards, an Olym-
pic administrator for the U.S.
Team Handball team, says the
survival of the Olympics is in
danger. "Maybe not immediately
but when you look a few years in
the future, this kind of thing is
setting a course that is changing
the concept of the Olympics as we
know it and will perhaps eliminate
the whole thing he said.
In discussions this week with a
representative of the U.S. Olym-
pic Committee about the status of
teams selected for play in team
handball, Edwards said he was
told that if Russia and other com-
munist nations follow through
with their announced boycott of
the summer games in Los
Angeles, alternate teams would be
selected to play in their places.
The selection of these alternates
would come after a June 2
deadline that has been set for
countries to accept their invita-
tions for participation.
In women's team handball a
total of six teams have been in-
vited to play in the games. The
include the U.S Russia, East
Germany, Hungary, Yugoslavia
and the People's Republic of
China. Russia, Hungary and East
Germany have already announced
their withdrawal. Yugoslavia has
not accepted its invitation but is
expected to atttend. China has
already accepted its invitation.
In the men's competition, there
are 12 teams invited to play. They
include Russia, Poland, Romania,
Czechoslovakia, Cuba, Algeria,
Yugoslavia, Denmark, East Ger-
many, Hungary, Japan and the
United States.
"In the women's competition
we have a realistic chance against
China Edwards says, "but
that's really about it. We're better
than we have ever been but we are
a long ways away from what some
of these powers are he said,
noting that the women have only
played the sport for a little less
than ten years and have never ap-
peared in Olympic competition.

Enrollment Increases Slightly
Newi Editor
Although enrollment figures
for the first session of summer
school have not yet been finalized,
the number of students enrolled is
a few students ahead of last sum-
mer, according to ECU Registrar
Gilbert Moore.
Moore said he expects the
number to be slightly higher than
last year when the new figures are
released. Some special courses
have not yet started, so it is dif-
ficult to determine the exact
enrollment, he said.
The number of ECU students
living in residence halls on-
campus, has also increased slight-
ly, said Director of Housing
Operations Dan Wooten. "As of
yesterday afternoon, we had 681
(students living in residence halls),
compared to 661 last summer
he said.
The number of students living
in the residence halls during the
summer dropped sharply approx-
imately three years ago, but has
leveled off since then, Wooten
said. The lack of air-conditioning
is often a reason for students op-
ting to live off-campus.
"I think a lot of them leave to
find air-conditioning Wooten
said. Of the four residence halls
open this summer (Garrett,
Greene, Jarvis, and part of Slay)
only Jarvis is air-conditioned.
Air-conditioning will be installed
in Fleming this summer.
Associate Dean of University
Unions Rudy Alexander said that,
from his perspective, a larger
number of summer school
students is better. "It makes it
more enjoyable to have a larger
number of people to work with
he said, adding that it contributes
to the success of events.
The Student Union sponsors
events such as Bingo and Ice
Cream nights, movies and con-
certs on the mall. Tuesday's Bingo
and Ice Cream night was so suc-
cessful, Alexander said, that peo-
ple had to be turned away.
Alexander also said that events
are also planned to coincide with
the freshman orientation pro-
grams, which will be held later
this summer.
Due Process Rights Limited
(CPS) � Striking down a lower
court decision that would have
resulted in sweeping changes in
the ways colleges discipline their
students, the New York Supreme
Court Appellate Division recently
ruled that students' constitutional
rights to due process don't always
apply to disciplinary procedures.
The court said a State Universi-
ty of New York at Cortland stu-
dent didn't have a right to an at-
torney to represent her or to a
review of written transcripts of
the universitys decision to sus-
pend her for a semester.
SUNY officials accused her of
cheating twice.
But whether or not she had
cheated was never the real issue.
"The student admitted the first
time she was caught cheating that
she had plagiarized an essay
savs SUNY lawver Peter Crarv.
The issue instead was how
closely the disciplinary pro-
ceedings she went through had to
resemble courtroom procedures.
At SUNY's campuses, the col-
leges must give students written
notice of the charges against
them, provide an open hearing in
which the student can call one
witness, and provide students with
a notice of what final penalties, if
any, are imposed on them.
This student, Marguerite
Moresco, asserted she was entitled
to the same professional represen-
tation and review of the written
proceedings she would have in
protecting herself in a civil or
criminal court.
New York's state Supreme
Court � which is not the state's
highest court � agreed with the
But now the appellate court has
sided with SUNY, saying the stu-
dent's rights in "a collegial at-
mosphere" were "best served by a
nonadversarial setting" without
dueling lawyers and transcripts.
Richard Shay, the student's at-
torney, could not be reached for
SUNY, however, is "quite
satisfied" by the decision, Crary
He says letting a student take a
lawyer into disciplinary hearings
and providing transcripts of the
6,000 to 7,000 disciplinary hear-
ings a hear on the SUNY campus
would place "an absolutely in-
tolerable burden on the universi-
"Due process does not require a
full adversarial hearing Crary
contends. "The student had the
right to confront witnesses, be
represented by someone in the col-
lege community and receive com-
plete written charges against her
Yet in many school discipline
situations, the legal cards are
already stacked against students,
the authors of a new book about
school discipline argue.

discipline cases that wind up in

ingsworth, co-author of School
Discipline which was published in
Sex Discrimination Is
Marring Many Classes
(CPS) � Even at the college
and university levels, classrooms
are marred by subtle and not-so-
subtle forms of sex discrimination
that may inhibit women students'
learning, a recent report by two
American University researchers
"One out or every three
classrooms are segregated by
sex says David Sadker, who
heads the Mid-Atlantic Center for
Sex Equity.
The Sadkers have conducted
numerous studies of sex bias in
education at both secondary and
post-secondary institutions.
Although much of the sexism
and segregation in colleges is "an
artifact of the students deciding
on their own where they will sit or
how they interact Sadker says,
many teachers serve as co-
conspirators in gender discrimina-
"We found a sizable difference
in teachers' responses (the dif-
ferent sexes), although this was
less significant at the college level
than at elementary and post-
secondary levels

American Games in January.
"The boycott is going to make
our competition easier but that is
certainly not what we are looking

He added that meetings are tak-
ing place with Russia this week in
hopes of getting the Soviets to
reconsider their plan to boycott
the Olympics. "I think there is
still hope for the Russians and
other boycotting nations to be in

assistants, research assistants and
making other student appoint-
ments, the Sadkers found.
Many of the classroom dif-
ferences, however, are
perpetuated by the students
themselves, Sadker says.
Indeed, another study released
recently found that students at
five Maryland colleges voluntarily
segregated themselves by race and
color when choosing their seats in

Job Market Imp
(CPS) � This spring's college
graduates can look forward to a
job market that is "very improv-
ed compared to last year's
gloomy employment scene, place-
ment experts report, but it's still
nowhere near the booming market
of the late seventies and early
"There's a decided turnaround
in the market and think it's going
to continue for a while observes
Victor Lindquist, placement
director at Northwestern Univer-
sity and author of the Endicott
Report on nationwide employ-
ment trends for college grads.
"It's kind of nice after going
through so many successive years
of tailing activity to see job offers
coming back in he adds.
Indeed, the number of job of-
fers made to the nearly one
million students who will graduate
with bachelor's degrees this spring
is up about 33 percent nationally,
says Linda Pengillywith the Col-
lege Placement Council (CPC).
"It's a big improvement over
last year, " she notes.
"Much, much better than
1983 concurs Jack Shingleton,
placement chief at Michigan State
University and director of another
nationwide job market study.
"We're seeing more employers
coming in to interview, hiring
quotas are up for all companies
about five percent, and more of-
fers are being made, "he reports.
General Motors' hiring needs
"are really up for graduates and
we're looking primarily for
engineering and computer science
majors says Walt Rolm, GM's
college recruitment director.
Likewise, IBM will hire more
grads than last year, says
spokesman Les Sabor.
To fill the company's 10,000
openings this year, IBM recruiters
are visiting over 350 campuses in
search of grads with technical
skills, business majors, and even
some liberal arts graduates, he
AT&T, in the wake of its recent
divestiture, will hire "about the
same" number of grads as last
year, and expects to increase its
job openings dramatically by
1985, officials there report.
The change will be welcomed.
Last year's market "was the
worst in recent history recalls
the CPC's Pengilly. "Offers and
salaries hit rock bottom
Following the record-breaking
markets of the late seventies,
when many graduates were getting
multiple job offers and starting
salaries were increasing at 9-to-13
percent a year, in the last two
years employers have cancelled
campus interviews, cut back on
the number of job offers, and
given little, if any, increases in
starting salaries, she explains.
"Now the '84 grad has a much
more optimistic market to go
into Pengilly says. "Things are
still restrained, but there's a sub-
dued optimism that things will
keep improving
The economic upturn, coupled
with the fact that many employers
have deferred new hirings for the
last two years, means there are
more openings for this year's job
seekers, MSU's Singleton says.
The starting salaries being of-
fered to this spring's grads,
however, aren't improving much.
Salary offers are running only
l-to-4 percent over last year's
stagnated levels, experts report.
Even for hot majors like
engineering and computer science,
salary increases are limping along
at two or three percent, according
to Pat Sheridan, executive direc-
tor for the Engineering Manpower
Commission (EMC).
"There may be a turnaround,
but salary increases are nowhere
near what we saw in earlier
years he says. In fact, "they're
no better than what we were see-
ing last year
"It's still an employers' market
and the employers realize it says
Pengilly. "A lot of employers are
telling us they're finding a much
more competitive attitude among
graduates and they're coming to
campuses with full interview
Another reason for the virtual
freeze on salary increases is that
employers aren't anxious to
repeat the sins of several years
ago, when many graduates got
starting salaries that often were
higher than salaries paid to other
"That so-called 'internal salary
compression' hurt many
employers and caused a lot of
dissatisfaction among their
established employees Pengilly
explains. "So employers are really
working to hold the line. Unless
the economy takes a significant
and unexpected upswing or the
money supply tightens, we don't
expect starting salaries to change
Engineering majors, of course,
are still the choice grads in this
year's market, enjoying $24,000
to $34,000 starting salaries,
Pengilly reports.
Of the over 74,000 four-year
engineering grads this year, the
electrical engineering majors re-
main the crown princes in terms
of demand and starting salaries,
says EMC's Sheridan, followed
by mechanical, civil, and chemical
Computer science and business
majors also continue to be in
strong demand and are comman-
ding $20,000-plus salaries, says
Northwstern's Lindquist.
And liberal arts and humanities
majors continue to struggle along
with the fewest job offers and
lowest starting salaries.
Starting wages for them are
averaging a pale $16,000, Pengilly
reports, actually a three percent
decrease from last year's salary
I don't think opportunities are
diminishing for liberal arts
grads, ' she says, "but for the last
tew years, as we were in a reces-
sion, many employers were cut-
ting costs by hiring liberal arts
people to do some of the jobs
previously held by technical ma-
Now, with the improved
economy and a ready supply of
eager technical grads, those
employers are once again bypass-
ing liberal arts majors.
Indeed, much of the recent talk
about companies hiring more
liberal arts graduates "is nothing
but talk says MSU's
"I've sat and listened to many a
chairman of the board talk about
the need for bringing liberal arts
People into the company he
points out. "But invariably, their
corporate recruiters come back to
campus and hire nothing but
engineers and computer science
majors. It's all a lot of talk at the
top without any follow through
Faculty Salaries Increase;
Change Is Still Sluggish
(CPS) � Faculty salaries went
up again this year, but not as
rapidly as in the past, a new
survey of the college teaching pro-
fession has found.
The average faculty salary has
gone up 5.7 percent since the
1982-83 school year, the
American Association of Univer-
sity Professors found in
preliminary results from its an-
nual study of how much college
teachers make.
But faculty salaries went up 7.9
percent in 1982 13, and 9.9 per-
cent in 1981-82.
AAUP spokeswoman Iris
Molotsky attributes the slowing
rate of increases to the declining
amounts of money state
legislatures give to colleges.
When academic funds are tight,
"There's a tendency to give flat
sums across the board" to faculty
members, she points out. In prac-
tice, that would mean there's less
of a salary difference between full
and associate professors.
Over the last two years,
however, administrators have said
the major reason they had to raise
tuition much faster than the infla-
tion rate is because they must pay
faculty members more.
A recent College Board study
contended faculty buying power is
now less than it was in 1972.
Asked to explain why student
tuition is being raised in order to
pay faculty members more even as
faculty salary increases slow
down, Molotsky says, "I can't

leges did slightly better than those

Access Bill
Chance For Compromise Missed
The defeat by the House Tuesday
of a bill to permit student religious
groups to meet after hours on
school property probably did the
school prayer movement some
good, and the protection of in-
dividual rights some harm.
The bill was a good compromise
to the school prayer issue, and even
without consideration of the school
prayer issue the bill makes good
sense. It would have permitted stu-
dent religious groups the same right
to meet on school property as other
student groups; it had nothing to
do with bringing religion into the
classroom, or even organized
religious events during regular
school hours.
The bill's defeat allows school
prayer supporters and religious ac-
tivists to make a case of the federal
government's hostility toward
religion. Students may voluntarily
meet for gun clubs, chess tour-
naments and foreign language
groups, but if they plan to talk
about a Bible or Koran, they'll
have to do it elsewhere.
From at least two points of view
the bill should have passed. The
first is less noble but more
pragmatic: to pacify some school
prayer supporters and prove the
government doesn't discriminate
against religion but is protecting
the religious freedom of all. That
case is harder to make with the
defeat of the freedom of access bill.
The second is good sense: it is de
facto discrimination against
religion to permit everything but
religious groups to meet on school
property, which is now the case. As
Rep. James Martin, R-N.C, ques-
tioned, "In a day when we are
pushing for equal rights for all
Americans should we deny the
right of assembly to voluntary-
organized student religious
There were ludicrous agruments
in the House that the bill would not
only allow such mainstream groups
as Bible clubs and Christian athlete
organizations but also
"demonologists (who) worship the
anti-Christ" and "animal
sacrifices (who would) slaughter a
pig in the classroom Those ex-
amples as a justification for oppos-
ing the bill are so farfetched they
speak for themselves. Interestingly
enough, in a neat twist of logic op-
ponents using this agrument imply
that defeating the bill thus helps
preserve the morality or social stan-
dards of the children to some
degree, because now those godless
devil worshippers can't meet after
school and corrupt young minds.
Too, they aren't opposed to the ac-
cess bill to protect religious
freedom but to keep out some
groups they dislike. Yet only
religious groups are prohibited
from meeting, not all groups; thus
in theory junior Nazis and the teen-
KKK, not the mention the Young
Communists, presently have as
much access to school meeting
rooms as the student government
or the ceramics club. The fact that
schools aren't filled with little
Hitlers, junior Marxists-Leninists
or 14-year-old Grand Dragons
wearing white sheets is some indica-
tion that neither will there be an
overabundance of devil worship-
pers and pig sacrifices.
The opponents' position can be
appreciated, but is probably based
more on pre-conceived political
convictions than clear-thinking
consideration of the present case.
They may well have just fueled the
fires of their opponents without
serving a good purpose; neither
religious freedom and tolerance nor
individual rights are furthered by
the bill's defeat.
Excuse Me, Sir, But Why
Mine The Chesapeake Bay?
I was out sailing on the Chespeake Bay
last weekend when I saw a fellow throwing
a large round plastic ball over the side of
his boat.
"Hey, what are you doing?" I asked.
"Mining for oysters he said.
"Why mines?" I asked.
"It's easier to find them if you can make
a big explosion he replied.
"Are you from the CIA?"
"Let's just say I'm an oysterman, and

covert oysterman?"
"I'm a covert oysterman he said. "You

Details, Details: A Few Questions
To See What Reaean ReallvTCnnw
By TRB � From Washington
The New RcpaMk
Vhat does President Reagan know
and when does he know it? Howard
Baker's old Watergate question ought to
be refurbished for the fall campaign.
Oh, not does he know who stole Jimmy
Carter's briefing book, or when did he
learn about the USIA "enemies list
Rather, does he know, say, the name of
the prime minister of Japan, even on a
day when this gentleman is not expected
to be popping up in the Rose Garden?
An enterprising reporter for TV sta-
tion WBZ in Boston, Andy Hiller,
recently gave a little surprise quiz to the
candidates competing for Paul
Tsongas's Senate seat. Among other sur-
prises, it turned out that two of the can-
didates did not know which sides the
United States is supporting in Nicaragua
and El Salvador, and that Elliott
Richardson thought the share of the
federal budget taken up by defense is 7.5
percent. (It's 28 percent.) Surely we have
the seed of a new American political
tradition here.
The widespread view in what's called
"the political community" is that
Ronald Reagan is the most ignorant
president anyone can recall, but that
there's no prosperity in making an issue
of this. Anecdotes abound.
He didn't recognize his won secretary
of housing and urban development at a
White House reception. Asked his view
on the Cyprus question, his answer
made clear he not only had no views but
had no idea what the question was.
"Oh, I wish the secretary of state were
here he remarked on that occasion.
According to Steven Weisman of The
New York Times, Reagan expressed sur-
prise last fall at learning that the Soviets
have most of their nuclear weapons on
land-based missiles, while the United
States has relatively few � a basic fact
of the nuclear age and, according to
critics, the central flaw in his own
START proposals for mutual reduction
in land-based missiles.
Judy Bachrach reported recently in
Rolling Stone that Charles Z. Wick,
Reagan's buddy who heads the USIA,
once sent around a memo to his staff
saying he and the boss were wondering:
Is France a member of NATO? They
needed the answer and didn't want the
embarrassment of asking the State
Department. Answer: France is a
political but not a military member. A
trick question, perhaps. But for the
Despite all this, even Arthur Schles-
inger Jr. wrote with grudging admira-
tion in the April 20 Wall Street Journal:
"If a president can point the country in
a direction and convince the voters that
it is the right one and if he can get
reasonably competent people to figure
out the details, it does no matter so
much politically that he himself hardly
knows what is going on
Well, maybe it doesn't matter so
much, but surely it matters. For one
thing, what if some of those detail peo-
ple � like former National Security Ad-
viser William Clark � can't name the
prime minister of Zimbabwe either? Of
course there will be plenty of sub-aides
and sub-sub-aides to pass along the odd
fact as needed.
The presidency is not a game of
Trivial Pursuit. But a certain degree of
abstraction from the facts raises
legitimate doubts. Can a president this
ignorant even decide what direction to
point in? It's the actor question: Does he
think for himself, or is he fed all his
Perhaps these stories that the presi-
dent doesn't know Alaska from his
elbow are inaccurate and unfair. If so,
they pose a delicate public relations pro-
blem. Bald denial could backfire, as it
did for then-Sen. Willam Scott of
Virginia, who secured his place in
history by calling a press conference to
deny a magazine's assertion that he was
the dumbest member of the U.S. Senate.
No, the only way Reagan can put the
Ignoramus Issue to rest is by submitting
to a White House Aptitude Test
(WHAT). Of course the essence of a sur-
prise quiz is that you don't know when
it's coming. It might be Sam Donaldson
at a press conference, or it might be Fritz
Mondale at a debate this fall. But some
time soon, someone should ask Reagan:
Mr. President, sir, with all due respect:

American troops to support Honduran

Antique Menagerie
Unique To G-Ville
Staff Writer
Oriental rugs are the store's newest feature.
Cable collects antiques within a 100-mile span of Greenville.
"I've got a house full of junk; I
like it. I've got a warehouse full of
junk and a garage full of junk
said Michael Cable, co-owner of
Cable & Craft, 818 Dickinson
"My wife, Annie, started the
business as a weaving store five
years ago because there was no
other place to buy the materials
locally. Eventually I decided to
put some junk in there � some
antiques. Of course when you get
involved, you want to put a little
of everything in there he added.
When you walk into Cable &
Craft, it feels you may have ac-
cidentally walked into your grand-
parent's attic. Old, framed
photographs of dignified men and
women, and large bookcases that
date back to 1890 line the walls.
Collections of faded, hardback
novels are randomly stuffed into
dust-covered shelves. Looms,
spinning wheels, yarn, hand-
woven garments, trays of elegant
glass, and beads are just a few of
the possible purchases in this
menagerie of relics. Cable's
"junk" is perhaps the finest ac-
cumulation of antiques in the
"I like photographs; I have
about 1500 and 400 pieces of pot-
tery � all types. I don't try to col-
lect all the pieces of a whole set,
just types said Cable.
Cable's love for antiques began
seventeen years ago, and he buys
all of his antiques within one hun-
dred miles from Greenville. Cable
claims that in order to appreciate
antiques, a knowledge of history,
construction, and materials must
be learned.
The name Cable & Craft may
fool some customers because this
is not a craft store. "There is a
problem sometimes because we
don't sell pom poms or doll
heads; they think it's a craft
store explained Cable.
"We sell dye, chemicals, yarn
that can be woven or crocheted.
We've got antique linen and
beads. This is the only place to get
beads said Cable. '
Many people have taken up the
art of jewlry making with Cable's
selection of beads. It does not
take a very creative person, either.
Instead of paying $50-75 for a
beaded necklace in many stores,
people are able to make a 16-inch
necklace for about $8-10. Several
pairs of earings can be con-
structed for $5 or less.
Cable's bead selection is not as
extensive as he wishes it to be, but
Presently he is researching the
market for more beads with uni-
que sizes, shapes and colors.

and looms are just a thing of the
past � you're wrong. "We've go

Many of the handwoven
garments are spun by Annie Cable
and Susan Wyre-Rhodes,

Phil Keaggy's 'Underground' Deserving Of Attention
'ARAT.F1FV � �
Staff Wiftar
Tired of mass-produced music?
Then go Underground.
In almost every way,
Underground is Phil Keaggy's
most original album to date. Not
only did he write the songs in his
basementhence, the title), he
supplied all of the instrumentals
himself, with some help from a
Roland rhythm machine.
The result is a collection of
eleven songs, three of them in-
strumental, that depart from the
highly polished style of his
previous albums. The production
is a bit rough, sometimes heavy on
the bass, and Keaggy relies on the
Roland too much for fullness in
some songs. Keaggy said that the
comfortable home setting, away
from the pressures and deadlines
of studio recording, allowed him
freer expression in his music.
Granted. The music is different
from past releases; lyrically speak-
ing, superior in poetry; musically
speaking, darker in tone. Often
the lead guitar growls and groans
like Glenn Kaiser's (Of Resurrec-
tion Band fame). But the recor-
ding performance lacks one thing
� probably because the songs
�rn 't intended for release at the
time that they were recorded �
Keaggy's drive for perfection in
his play.
Keaggy's drive and persistence
in giving his best performance
gives his albums energy, excite-
ment, intensity, and individuality.
Phil Keaggy musk is characteriz-
ed by excellent guitar work, which
w surprising to people when they
find out that he has no right ring
finger. Even early in his career, in
the late 60s, Keaggy was hailed as
one of the top three rock guitarists
in the nation, along with Jimi
Hendrix and Eric Clapton.
Keaggy stayed with his group,
Glass Harp, for about a year after
accepting Christ. In 1971 he left the
group and Decca Records to
follow the Lord's leading to begin
a solo career. Fans of contem-
porary Christian music, or "Jesus
Rock as this new form of
religious music was then termed,
began buying Phil Keaggy
albums. However, Keaggy's first
major success didn't come until
The guidance of producer Buck
Herring, the keyboard wizardry
and string arrangements of
Michael Omartian, and assistance
from a number of other promi-
nent Jesus musicians sculpted the
album, Love Broke Thru, into
one of Christian music's most im-
portant works. The titlecut did
very well on Gospel charts.
Ironically, the song was one of
only two on the album not written
by Keaggy. "Time "Wild
Horse and "Just the Same" are
each songs highlighting Keaggy's
dynamic guitar play. "Abraham"
was a typical mellow Keaggy
melody, simple, sung sweetly with
classical guitar accompaniment.
Keaggy's versatile tenor voice,
coupled with his innovative and
poetic lyrics, often nudged the
listener into some kind of decisive
action. Sometimes the words en-
couraged: "So share the weight
with others, and call upon His
Working On Tie 'Umtergro
name; Don't try to bear the load
alone, 'cause Jesus took the
As time passed, Keaggy con-
tinued experimenting with his
music, a rare practice in most
Christian music, and stretching
his talent. Emerging by the Phil
Keaggy Band was moderately suc-
cessful. Keaggy was beginning to
incorporate the jazz technique of
playing variations of a recurring
theme into his music. He became
known for his improvisation in his
concert performances. How the
West Was One is an excellent
recording of a Phil Keaggy con-
cert which beautifully showcases
his talent (and the talents of the
Second Chapter of Acts).
Town to Townoncc again
revealed Keaggy as a consistently
good singer.songwriter. "Full
Circle" and "What a Wonder
You Are" have an easy, playful
Paul McCartn-ish flavor. "Life
Love and You" and "Let All Else
Go" are two mellow tunes which
show Keaggy's maturity; these
songs, although produced simply,
are not simple songs, like similar
ones from Love Broke Thru. They
possess the richness and fluidity
that the earlier songs needed.
Fluid is also a good word to
describe Play Thru Me. Most of
the songs flow easily, melodicallv
from start to finish. The album
contains 12 songs � four more
than the standard popular album
� most of which are good.
"Carefree" best describes the
tone of this LP; it expresses the
freedom from the weight of every-
day cares that Jesus can provide a
So be free go and run your race
Don't be late
Go and fight the good fight of
And like a child be carefree
It's a bright and joyful melody
Play Thru Me gave Keaggy his
last practice for home production.
He co-produced the album with
Bob Cotton and arranged the
music. Later, he left Sparrow-
Records and formed his own Nissi
label. Then he went home.
During the winter months of
1982-83, Keaggy wrote a lot of
songs. He recorded a number of
them using a Teac 144 Porta-
Studio and a four-track cassette
tape deck, then played them back
to his wife and some of his friends
to get an idea of which songs
might be best for an album.
Underground was born.
The choices were good ones.
My personal choice is "What A
Love because it is a fun song.
The music of "Deadline a song
about workaholics who sacrifice
their families for that all-
important deadline, beautifully
accents the lyrics, driving the
message home. The rhythm moves
relentlessly onward through the
song, while the melody and the
vocals keep the song from soun-
ding redundant.

song for his wife Bernadette

'The Natural Wins Respect
'Good Stuff
Staff Wrimr
The risks one faces when at-
tempting to make a feature film
involving a sport are myriad.
Although there have been a
number of fine sports films pro-
duced in the past, a large majority
of them have been plagued by at
least one of the following: actors
who are poor athletes; athletes
who are poor actors; farcical story
lines; predictable story lines; and
or a sense of drama seemingly
derived from a Budweiser com-
mercial ("Bring out your best").
It may be argued that The
Natural, Robert Red ford's new
film about a baseball phenom,
deals a bit too much in cheap sen-
timent and is in some ways too
predictable, but those minor flaws
can be easily overlooked to the
better enjoyment of what is
overall a very appealing and well-
conceived production.
The basic plot involves the shat-
tered and then regained career of
Roy Hobbs (Redford), a young
man of Ruthian talents who is
gunned down by a femme fatale
(Barbara Hershey) the night
before his tryout with the Chicago
Cubs. His body broken, Hobbs is
forced to abandon the game he
loves for 16 years, but, driven to
the top of their league with the
booming of his homemade, nearly
mythical bat, "Wonder Boy
The problem is, one of the
Knights' owners, the evil Judge,
wants the club to fail so he can
buy out his partner and team
manager, Pop Fisher, thus leading
to the attempted corruption of
Along the way Roy meets his
childhood sweetheart, Iris (Glenn
Close) again, and through her he
is able to glean some understan-
ding of those 16 lost years he spent
away from baseball � the game
that had once been his life. It is
these scenes of Roy and Iris back
together, older, wiser, different
than as youths, that contain the
soul of the movies, that tell us
why baseball � or any dream �
and life sometimes cannot exist as
Early in the movie a young Roy
is told by his father that he has a
"gift" for the game, but the
father warns that simply having
the gift is not enough. Extending
the gift into more than an
ephemeral promise would take
careful nurturing and wise steps, a
lesson forgotten by Roy when he
goes to meet the mysterious lady
before his tryout with the Cubs.
Years later a reflective Roy tells
Iris thaf'there are some mistakes
we never stop paying for Iris,
played with grace and dismarming
ease by Close, responds: "I
believe we have two lives; the life
we learn with, and the life we live
with after that It's such a simple
phrase, really, but it captures
perfectly the failure and redemp-
tion of Roy Hobbs. He had made
mistakes and kept on making
them, but the ember of the gift
that was his glory smoldered on
within until the day he realized
that no matter what the risks, he
had to try again.
Although non-baseball fans
may be a bit put off by the game's
role in the film, I nevertheless
highly recommend The Natural to
anyone wanting to see two-and-a-
half hours of good stuff. It is well-
acted throughout (particularly
Wilford Brimley as Pop Fisher),
very well paced, laced with
humor, ups and downs, good guys
and bad guys, staggering homes
and windy whiffs � all topped off
by a wonderful ending and a Ran-
dy Newman score. The
cinematography is also excep-
tional, particularly shots of the
young, wide-eyed boys pulling so
hard for their hero at the film's
Baseball, more than any other
American game, is really a bond
between fathers and sons, a sort
of neutral turf of mutual interest
where the relative merits of Joe
DiMaggio can be debated against
those of Henry Aaron or Ted
Williams against Pete Rose or any
of a thousand other players
against any of a thousand others.
The Natural looks at the perceived
chasms of our society � between
fathers and sons, worshipful boys
and cynical old men, man and
woman, heroes and villains,
dreams and reality � and tells us
a fine and reassuring way that
most of the time, the distance bet-
ween those things is a lot shorter
than we have been led to believe.
'83 Release Generates Excitement
Continued From Page 5
one the song is "One in a
Million This one has a heavy-
metal bluesy flavor, but it doesn't
drag you down. Again, on the
subject of love, Keaggy pays
tribute to a couple who have
learned the secret of a godly mar-
riage: "Because you love him,
because you love her; An ever
flowing stream of light comes
from; The one who made you
right for each other As usual,
Keaggy skillfully accents the
words with a stream of smooth-
flowing music and gentle
Keaggy's blending of music and
words are, without a doubt, most
effective in "The Survivor The
song is a first-person, present
tense story of an unborn child
who endures and survives a salt-
solution abortion attempt.
Keaggy's electric guitar weeps, the
music mourns as the infant
wonders what is happening:
Am I safe, the water around me
changing, is it alright
But I am burning, oh what are
they doing
They want to take away my life
But as for me I trust in Thee oh
Lord my
times are in your hand
You are my God, deliver me
from the
solution that they have planned
The string arrangements and the
vocals haunt the listener, as
remorse begins to haunt the
Will you discard me, throw away
starve me and slowly drain away
my life. . .
Desperate hands reach out to
embrace me
At this point, the time shifts for-
ward. There is no indication how
far, but it's not important tothe
song. The child lives.
Now I am one apart from the
fortunate to survive
And though I bear in my body
these old
wounds, they didn't take away
my life
The musical intensity increases as
the drama unfolds, engrossing the
listener. "The Survivor" is the
softer side of Keaggy at his best.
Not recommended for Pro-Choice
Unfortunately, Underground
doesn't provide us with a sample
of Keaggy's rockin best. "What
A Love "Deadline" and
"Follow Me On" will satisfy the
rocker's appetite, but none of the
songs are exceptional. As I said
before, these songs lack that striv-
ing for excellence; the songs are
good, but not up to Keaggy's
standards. Often, they are
musically redundant, especially
the instrumental. "Follow Me
On" is one of the three instrumen-
tal. Although it is slow paced, it
is definitely rock. The music con-
jures up images of thousands of
people trudging through hard
times to (hopefully) find a better
life. I think that means the music
As a whole, Underground is an
album that deserves attention
from Keaggy fans. Town to Town
or Play Thru Me are better in-
troductions to Phil Keaggy for
those who have never heard him.
Underground needs to be heard
several times to be fully ap-
preciated; it is one of those
albums that grows on you.

Stephen King, master of the
macabre, chalked upon another
thriller to his list of terrifying and
intriguing works. Based on his
novel Firestarter, the movie, also
of the same name, combines the
talent of three Academy Award
winners George C. Scott, Art
Carney and Louise Fletcher, and
the acting ability of Martin Sheen,
Drew Barrymore, David Keith,
and Heather Locklear to yield one
of King's most critically aclaimed
and fascinating works.
The old adage that children
shouldn't play with matches
doesn't apply in this case because
Miss Barrymore, who plays the
role of eight-year-old Charlie
McGee, doesn't have to play with
matches to start a fire. Charlie
possesses a bizarre skill known to
psychic researchers as a "wild
talent" or pyrokenesis, which
turns her fears and frustrations in-
to a fiery weapon.
"Charlie stood looking at
them, and she was afraid. She was
afraid because Daddy had told her
again and again that she shouldn't
do it . . . since earliest childhood it
had been the Bad Thing. She
might hurt herself, or someone
else, or lots of people This ex-
cerpt from King's novel describes
the ongoing battle that Charlie ex-
periences within herself
throughout the entire story. Her
deepest wish is to be a "normal
little girl" that can attend school
and play with others without the
fear of becoming angry and set-
ting someone or something on
The audience is inclined to sym-
pathize with Charlie, however, for
we know that she will never really
be "normal Charlie is the pro-
duct of two who participated in a
psychology experiment while in
Andy (Keith) and Vicky
(Locklear) met in Dr. Wanless'
"Lot Six" psychology experi-
ment. At the time both needed
some extra cash, so apprehensive-
ly they agreed to be the
psychology department's guinea
pigs by letting Wanless and his
graduate assistants observe their
behavior to a certain drug for
$200. The drug turned out to be
something far more dangerous
than intended, however, because
eight of the ten participants even-
tually died or committed suicide.
The only two remaining were An-
dy and Vicky, who both possessed
telepathic powers. Unfortunately
they married and had a child that
possessed powers much more
dangerous � Charlie, their
daughter, was born with the
power to start fires when she so
Because of Charlie's powers the
family had come under close
scrutiny of "The Shop a covert
government agency of the Depart
ment of Scientific Intelligence.
The plot revolves around Andy
and Charlie's constant efforts to
escape from members of "The
Shop" in order to live a normal,
hassel-free life. Sheen and Scott
portray the vicious and shrewd
manipulators at "The Shop" who
seek to capture Charlie and use
her for their own selfish purposes.
VisuaJ effects in the movie are
more than incredible � they are
brilliant. Flashing across the
screen are cars exploding in mid-
air and fireballs darting at objects
and people. For those with a weak
stomach the blood and goriness
may be a bit much, but for the
context of this story, the scenes
are technically fascinating.

With the 1984 track season
coming to a close, star athletes
Henry Williams and Craig White
are preparing to run in their last
meet before the NCAA National
The meet, the IC4A's, will be
held in Philadelphia this weekend
and according to head coach Bill
Carson, Gustin Young of N.C
State and Williams will be the on-
ly two 200-meter runners at the
meet that have already qualified
for the Nationals.
Williams competed against
Young in the 100 meters at the
Cavalier Invitational last
weekend. "He beat him bad in the
100 meters Carson said.
"Henry has been running well, he
won the 200 meters at the Virginia
meet by ten or so yards ahead of
the other runners
Coach Carson won't know
what William's competition at the
Nationals will be like until the
results from the Conference
Championships held all over the
country this weekend are in. "So
far twenty-five or thirty runners
have qualified in the 200 for the

The qualifying time for the Na-

Williams will be running the

handoffs right Carson said.
"We're sacrificing a possible
good showing at the IC4A's in
order to qualify the 4x100 relay
team for the Nationals � we can

The current runners on the
4x100 relay team are Chris
Brooks, Erskinc Evans, Nathan
xtr�0rkle and anchorman Henry
Williams. McCorkle has just
returned to the 4x100 line-up after
recovering from an injury.
High hurdler Craig White
substituted for McCorkle in a
previous meet and did a pretty
good job according to coach Car-
son- "Craig has a little inex-
perience in the 4x100 relay
because he hasn't been running it
much this year Carson said.
White's strong point is the 110
high hurdles in which he has
qualified for the Nationals and
Olympic trials.
He qualified for both at the
Penn Relays in late April with a
time of 13.83 seconds, .5 seconds
below the 13.88 standard qualify-
ing time.
But in the last couple of meets,
White has not been running the
high hurdles as well as he usally
does. "Craig is racing the com-
petition and not the hurdles
Carson said. "He has to concen-
trate on the hurdles, he's trying
too hard. If he hurdles good he's
got it at the IC4A's
According to Carson, White is
going to be in the top three at the
Nationals. Some of the top com-
petitors he will be facing are:
Eugene Norman from Rutgers,
Pendegraft from Seaton Hall and
Holmes from Pitt.
Carson feels that White's
toughest opponent is Norman
from Rutgers. "Norman has
beaten Craig regularly and Craig
has beaten Norman a couple of
times. Craig has a tough road
ahead of him, the high hurdles are
a tough event if not the toughest
at the IC4A's
In preparation for the IC4A's,
Carson plans to start "quick legg-
ing" White in which he will prac-
tice with hard short runs.

needs to practice on and accor-

In substitution, Carson plans to
take White to a track in Wilson
two times next week. The track
has only 39-inch hurdles for high
school athletes, so Carson is tak-
ing a couple of 42-inch collegiate
hurdles along.
Long-jumper Chris Brooks is
also competing in the IC4A's this
weekend and Coach Carson
thinks Brooks has a chance to win
his event. "Chris has a good
chance Carson said. "He'll be
running in the 4x100 relay before
the long jump and I think that will
be a good warm-up for him

ECU received an automatic
berth into the NCAA baseball
playoffs this weekend with a 9-5
victory over James Madison in the
ECAC South tournament cham-
pionship, but they won't find out
until next Monday where the
NCAA will send them to play.
ECU has made it to the
regionals four out of the last five
years, and Pirate head coach Hal
Baird thinks his team has as good
a chance as anybody to advance to
the eight-team College World
Series which begins June 1 in
Omaha, Neb.
"There are a lot of factors to
consider Barid said, "but once
you get to the point where there
are only 36 teams left,
everybody's good
Baird said that if South
Carolina, runner-up in the Metro
Conference, received an at-large
bid as a hust team, ECU would
probably be assigned to that
"If South Carolina is extended
an invitation, we would expect to
go there along with North
Carolina and Appalachian
State he said.
The NCAA has already an-
nounced five of the eight regions
and their hosts:
Central Region
Austin, Texas
Texas, 54-12, Southwest
Southern Region
Tallahasse, Florida
Florida State, 53-26, Metro Con-
Midwest Region
Stillwater, Oklahoma
Oklahoma State, 51-11, Big Eight
West I Region
Fresno, California
Fresno State, 53-10-2, Northern
California Association.
West II Region
Tempe, Arizona
Arizona State, 48-17, Pacific Ten
In the event that South
Carolina isn't extended a bid, the
Pirates would most likely attend
the Southern regional because it
would then become the next
closest site.
None of the at-large selections
have been announced at this time,
however, the NCAA said it would
make those selections along with
the three remaining regional sites
by May 21.
Twelve other automatic
qualifiers for the tournament are:
Grambling State, 29-15,

Football Gets Watts
The Pirates better be wide
Contracts have been signed
with at least three 100,000 watt
FM radio stations for the Pirate
Sports Network for 1984, thus
assuring East Carolina University
football coverage from the
southern tip of Virginia, south to
the Myrtle Beach, SC, area, and
west to Raleigh.
WITN-FM, Washington, NC,
has signed a new three-year con-
tract as the feed station for the
Pirate Sports Network, continu-
ing a relationship of the last three
years through the spring of 1988.
This feed contract calls for all
football and all men's basketball
games to be originated through
the facilities of WITN-FM, one of
the strongest signal stations in
North Carolina.
WVBS-FM covers an area from
Kinston to the north, Myrtle
Beach to the south, and north
beyond FayetviUe. WKTC-FM
covers a vast majority of northern
parts of eastern North Carolina
and west beyond Raleigh.
"We are very pleased to have
these three very powerful FM sta-
tions for our network in 1984

director for public relations and
executive producer of the net-
work. "Our key alumni areas are
now covered with just these three
"The new three-year commit-
ment from WITN-FM as our

Other local radio stations will
be announced in the near future as
members of the Pirate Sports Net-
work. It is expected 15-20 stations

First Seven-Footer In
School History Signs
East Carolina University has
signed 7-foot, 235-pound center
Peter Dam to a basketball letter-
of-intent, Head Coach Charlie
Harrison announced Wednesday.
As ECU football rises to new heights, so does its listening audience �
the Pirates will now be heard from the tip of Virginia to Myrtle Beach
Dam, from Haaksbergen, The
Netherlands, is a member of the
Dutch Junior National Team and
was recommended to East
Carolina by Al Faber, who played
for the Pirates from 1969-1973.
Faber has been playing profes-
sional basketball in The
Netherlands for the last eight
years and will be a member of the
Dutch Olympic Team in 1984.
"We're pleased to have him
Harrison said. "He gives us more
depth and experience up front
because he has been playing
against older and more experienc-
ed players. He will be a great help.
Our weakness last year was the in-
side game and rebounding
Dam visited three schools in the
United States � LSU, Southwest
Louisiana and East Carolina �
before deciding on the Pirates.
He has been playing organized
basketball for the last three years
in the Dutch club program. Dam
should have three years of
eligibility remaining as far as Har-
rison and his staff can determine.
However, ECU is awaiting a final
ruling from the NCAA.
Dam's signing brings the
number to three that the Pirates
have signed this spring. Harrison
has already secured the signatures

Now before you go off saying
you already know what handball
is, it's not what its name implies.
The game doesn't even resemble
its namesake which is played in a
racquetball size area with a hard
little ball that ricochets from wall
to wall.
Instead, team handball is
played on a court that is about 30
percent larger than a basketball
court with a ball that is slightly
smaller than a volleyball. Put
simply, the game is played with
two teams each comprising seven
people who pass the ball back and
forth to each other until someone
gets the chance to fire the ball into
one of the two "hockey type"
goals at each end of the court.
Simple, right? Well, it's about

The sport of team handball was
organized in Denmark in the early
1900's. It began as a way to keep
soccer players in shape during the
winter months but has since
developed into one of the world's
most popular sports. With its 4.2
million participants in 88 coun

Yugoslavia, which is seeded first,
was beaten by the U.S. team two
years ago. Among the other
powers in team handball, Russia,
East Germany and
Czechoslovakia have elected to

Poland, Hungary, and Cuba are
still in question. Edwards said the
U.S. men's team should be com-
petitive with the remaining teams
and any of the teams selected to
replace the boycotting nations.
Edwards got his start in team
handball while serving as an army
special services officer for the 8th
Infantry Division in Bad Kreuz-
nach, West Germany. He was
good physical condition and
would help boost morale.
Following his army service, Ed-
wards introduced the sport at Ap-
palachian State where he worked
from 1972-1975, and then to
students at ECU. This year, he
says there v ere about 55 in-

that no one wants to hold the ball
for very long because there are
seven other players who are dying
to steal the ball and the best
players have devised all kinds of
devilish schemes to remove the
ball from an opposing player. Few
fouls are called. Slugging, tripp-
ing and other unnecessary-
roughness will get a player two
minutes in the penalty box.
Edwards, who joined the ECU
staff in 1975, introduced team
handball into ECU's intramural
program in 1976. Over the past
eight years, ECU has sent 14 of its
players, both men and women, to
