New Therapy Center
Will Begin Operating
By End Of Summer
I roa Maff Report!
Modern technology is once
again coming to Eastern North
Carolina via the ECU School of
Medicine. A $5.2 million Radia-
tion Therapy Center is now near-
ing completion and is scheduled to
open later this summer.
The center will serve Eastern
North Carolina from the Virginia
border and on down the coast to
Jacksonville, reaching as far west
as Wilson, according to Dr.
Spencer Raab, chief of oncology
and hematology at the medical
There are currently other radia-
tion therapy centers located in
Nevs Bern, Kinston and
Goldsboro, but "they are not as
extensive said Dr. Gordon Jen-
drasiak. a medical biophysicist at
the school.
Radiation therapy is used to
prevent the spread of cancer,
decrease the rate of cancer growth
and or cure cancer.
To this end, the center will have
two treatment rooms and two
separate therapy machines. The
smaller machine is a high-energy
X-ray generator operating at six
million volts, while the larger
machine operates at 20 million
volts. The cost of the machines
was approximately $1.5 million.
"The smaller machine will be
the workhorse Jendrasiak said.
"It will probably get close to 80
percent of the patients He add-
ed that the larger machine also has
an electron beam which can be us-
ed for cancers close to the surface.
The higher energy machine pro-
duces more penetrating radiation,
which is particularly useful with a
heavier patient.
Both machines are electrically-
run linear accelerators, "basically
big X-ray machines, run with
microwaves Jendrasiak said.
Also located in the center is a
$350,000 simulator which is used
for precise location of the tumor
prior to initiation of treatment.
Because of the large amounts of
radiation generated, the building
itself is specially constructed, with

building will also be used for the
Department of Radiation On-
cology, which provides
chemotherapy. That section will
begin operating next week, while
the rest of the center is scheduled
to begin operations by the end of
the summer.
"There is a terribly big need"
for the center, Raab said. Patients
undergoing therapy are currently
being sent to Kinston, New Bern,
Raleigh or Norfolk. Since therapy
is generally performed five days a
week, this is "very expensive for
some of the patients he said.
Most patients residing between
treatment center locations would
prefer to come to Greenville,
Raab said, because it is often
easier than traveling to a larger ci-

The ECU Major Attractions
Committee is hoping to compen-
sate for a concert-less spring
semester by booking The Roman-
tics to perform at ECU this sum-
mer, according to Mike
McPartland, the committee chair-
man, although an exact date has
not been set, nor has the band
made a definite performance com-
If the band agrees to perform, it
will be a triumph over ECU's
failure to have a concert last spr-
ing for financial reasons. One
reason for the great anticipation is
that the group, which used to be a
small-time band, has recently
turned out some hit singles,
McPartland said.
ECU usually has a major con-
cert every semester, and
McPartland is taking measures in
an attempt to avoid last spring's
failure. One is the additions of a
five-page rider to the contract,
and McPartland said, "We will
sign the contract if both the band
and committee agree to all of the
terms The provisions mainly
concern the reduction of un-
necessary expenses such as cater-
ing and limousine service, and the
tickets may sell for prices as low
as five dollars if all works out as
planned. Such reductions may im-
prove the chances for a greater
student turnout.
However, in the summer there
are fewer students to draw from
so the concert may be held at
Wright Auditorium which has an

even lower capacity than Minges
and which is air-conditioned.
"Only ticket sales (along with
loans) finance these concerts
said McPartland, adding that the
Major Attractions Committee is
different from all the other stu-
dent union committees in that it is
the only one not financed through
student funds.
Two methods of student transportation � the easy, and the economical.
ECT News Bureau
More than $200 million in year-
ly income is generated in Pitt
County by East Carolina Univer-
sity, according to researchers in
the ECU School of Business.
This estimated total is based on
statistical calculations of spending
by ECU faculty and staff
employees, students and visitors,
along with university purchases in
the local area. Data used included
enrollment and employment
figures and surveys of a random
sample of students and
The study was a project of the
ECU Bureau of Business
Research; Dr. Donald Guy of the
Department of Finance directed
the study.
"For purposes of this study,
ECU was treated as a
multiproduct firm whose impact
was measured thorough economic
base analysis said Guy. "Our
focus was income generated from
outside the region
Individuals' expenditures in-
cluded funds spent locally for
rent, property taxes, utilities,
food, clothing, major purchases
(automobiles, appliances, fur-
niture) and such intangibles as in-
surance and local banking.
Spending by ECU's 2,340
employees was calculated at near-
ly $25 million yearly. Spending by
students who come to ECU from
outside Pitt County exceeded that
figure slightly.
Some $3.7 million in visitor ex-
penditures was added to student
and facultystaff spending, and
university purchases were
estimated to total about
$12,500,000 per year.
The resulting total, $67,293,827
was multiplied three times, the
conservative estimate of how
often a dollar changes hands
before it is spent outside Pitt
County, explained Dr. Guy. In
studies of this type, an "economic
base multiplier" as low as 1.2 or
as high as seven is selected, depen-
ding upon a communr.v 's
economic structure and size.
One major economic factor �
construction of new buildings on
campus � was not considered in
the ECU study, he said, since
these expenditures vary widely
from year to year and must be
identified by which firms (local or
outside) receive building contracts
and who is hired to work on the
"Even when construction
workers come from outside Pitt
County for work on campus, they
still spend some money locally on
such things as meals or gasoline
Guy noted. "Omitting these ex-
penditures has the effect of

when they occur, are of con-
siderable size, he pointed out,
noting as examples two recent
projects � the $3 million renov a-
tion of Messick Theatre Arts
Center and completion of the
$27.1 million Brody Medical
Sciences Building.
"The estimated dollar value of
income generated by ECU in Pitt
County � $201,881,481 per year
� was the result of considering
strictly measurable quantities
said Dr. Guy.
"However, there are other ways
in which a university campus has
economic impact upon its region,
such as helping to lure major in-
dustries from urban areas
ECU and similar campuses in-
crease an area's attractiveness by-
making available a supply of
highly trained personnel, cultural
amenities and high-quality
medical care, he said.
"East Carolina University may
raise the potential for future
development not only in Pitt
County but over a much wider
area of eastern North Carolina
Freshman Aid Program Planned For Fall Semester
Plans for the initiation of a new
freshman aid progam at ECU are
now being finalized and the pro-
gram will be introduced at this
summer's freshman orientation
sessions, SGA President John
Rainey said.
The program will be coor-
dinated by 1983-84 Freshman
Class President Staci Falkowitz,
who designed the program.
Former SGA President Paul Naso
also helped with the program
planning last spring.
The program is similar to one
currently used by Texas A&M
University and is designed to serve
as a "stepping stone" for incom-
ing freshmen, and a "way for
future student leaders to develop
their potential according to a
pamphlet put out by,the SGA.
The pamphlet will be distributed
during orientation, Rainey said.
Students who want to par-
ticipate in the program will be re-
quired to fill out an application
and will then be interviewed by a
The students chosen will have
several responsibilities. They will
be required to put in two hours of
work in the SGA office each
week. In addition, they will be re-
quired to serve as a page at two
legislative meetings each month.
They will be allowed to serve on
one standing committee and will
be given an equal voice and vote
as committee members.
A monthly aide meeting will
also be held. The purpose of this
meeting will be to focus on one
specific aspect of leadership and
to exchange ideas and informa-
tion with other aides.

But colleges are otherwise not
responsible for the actions ot
third parties, he says.

Yet, aside from a USC grad stu-

Some students, of course, are
not even bothering to try to go to

Over Half Of Students
Receive Financial Aid

(CPS) � Over half of all full-
time college students received
some form of financial aid last
year, according to one of the most
sweeping studies to-date on the
impact of aid programs.
Nationally, 51 percent of the
students surveyed at over 2800
colleges and universities received
either federal, state, or private
financial assistance to help with
their college costs, a new survey
by the American Council on
Education shows.
"I think a lot of people are sur-
prised that over half of all
students received some form of
aid comments Charles Ander-
son, one of the ACE researchers
who compiled the report.
Nearly 42 percent of the full-
time undergrads at four-year
public colleges received aid, while
65 percent of the students at
private colleges got assistance.
Part of the reason for the
greater use of aid among private
school students was due to the in-
creased amount of private,
campus-based aid available,
Anderson says.
But the increased cost of atten-
ding private institutions � nearly
double the expense of attending a
public school � was also respon-
sible for students at those schools
being awarded larger aid
amounts, he explains.
Among less-costly institutions
� where annual student expenses
are less that $3000 � 46 percent
of the students drew some form of
financial aid, compared with

And confirming some financial
aid experts' worst fears, the study
found that many of the colleges
which experienced enrollment
declines in 1982-83 attributed the
dropoff to reported cutbacks and
confusion over the amount of
financial aid available.
"In 1982-83 there were at-

Negative Ads
Smear Campaigns Are Bad Politics
Rufus Edmisten is doing the
citizens of North Carolina as good a
service now as he could ever do for
them if elected governor.
By refusing to engage in negative
campaigning and chiding his oppo-
nent, Eddie Knox, for what he sees
as negative attacks, Edmisten is
making an issue out of an almost
lost etiquette in North Carolina
politics. The campaign strategy
must be to make Edmisten seem too
kind-hearted, compassionate and
fair an individual to engage in such
base political slandering and mudsl-
inging. Probably too he really
believes negative campaigning is
wrong and it harms politics as much
as it insults and annoys citizens.
The interesting thing is, Knox has
hardly run a negative campaign on
the style North Carolinians are ac-
customed to. He has done little
more than promise to break up Ed-
misten's "good oV boy" political
system, attack Edmisten on his per-
sonal tax record and question
whether Edmisten is fighting utility
rate hikes. Perhaps the most poten-
tially harsh accusation is that Ed-
misten supporters tried to in-
timidate Knox's black campaign
workers. But the charges are not the
primary punch of Knox's campaign
� like Edmisten, Knox concen-
trates on touting his own record and
making promises and plans.
But Edmisten has denounced
even small attempts at negative
campaigning in the gubernatorial
race and has used virtually no per-
sonal attacks on his opponents. To
be sure, none of the gubernatorial
candidates engaged in mudslinging
to a significant degree, but Ed-
misten makes a constant effort to
play by some unspoken gentleman's
rules, and he chides his opponent if
he does not do the same.
Edmisten's hope is, of course,
that voters will see what a nice, fair
gentleman he is and that negative
campaigning is a dirty, mean or
desperate � not qualities one wants
in an elected official. Hopefully,
N.C. voters will learn that lesson. If
they do reward the virtuous cam-
paigner and reject those using
negative advertising, the real loser
won't be Eddie Knox � who has
run a by and large positive cam-
paign � but Sen. Jesse Helms, who
invented and perfected slanderous,
negative, campaign advertising.
Sardonic Surveillance
Helms' Congressional Club and
re-election committee have made a
science out of negative campaign
tactics, advertising focused on
degrading the opponent rather than
promoting their own candidate. It's
hard to see what purpose is served
when the Helms for Senate Com-
mittee puts on the cover of one of its
many anti-Hunt pamphlets a quote
from a News and Observer story,
"(Mondale's) outline of his cam-
paign platform sounded like the
campaign theme of Gov. James B.
Hunt" and deletes the middle
phrase, "except for international
issues Why does the pamphlet not
include the points of the platform as
in the story, such as concern for the
elderly, civil rights, rural America
and reducing interest rates? Such
slanted ads attacking opponents on-
ly debase politics and distort real
issues; they rely on name-calling
and innuendo instead of issues and
facts. They also reveal something
about how supporters view their
candidate: perhaps they feel he
can't win by running only on his
own record, so the opponent must
be distorted some before their can-
didate stands a chance.
Helms' campaign deserves an
award for sheer gall and nerve in at-
tacking Hunt for holding a fun-
draiser in New York when Helm's
campaign has raised 70 percent of
its funds from outside North
Carolina. Such an ad can only be ef-
fective if it relys on people's ig-
norance about the sources of
Helm's funds; Helms obviously
isn't opposed to out-of-state con-
tributions, or he wouldn't get the
majority of his funds from such
Let's hope that 1984 is the year
N.C. voters will demonstrate that
they insist on ethical, tasteful cam-
paign behavior from their elected
officials, and they will not stand for
slanderous, negative campaigning.
One wonders how Edmisten's (or
others') noble and upright posture
would hold up under Helm's
vitriolic, name-calling ads. Hunt,
who has largely avoided negative
campaigning so far, hasn't faired
well as a result in the polls. Ed-
misten has taken the right step in
admonishing negative advertising;
let's hope voters endorse and
reward this posture among all politi-
North Carolina has a special brand of
politics, so it probably time it adopted a
special set of rules.
The only elected office for which
there is now a campaign spending limit is
the presidency � if a candidate wants
federal matching funds, he cannot spend
more than $20.2 million this year to win
election to the Oval Office. The Federal
Elections Commission thinks that
roughly a dime for each citizen is all a
candidate needs to spend to get his
message out and let the voters decide.
Anything more, one might assume, just
gives an unfair advantage to wealthy
campaigns, or permits an unnecessary
media barrage.
In North Carolina, the State Board of
Elections makes no such rules for N.C.
political campaigns, and until now there
wasn't really a need for it. But things a
getting a little ridiculous.
Try a few comparisons. The top three
Democratic candidates for governor
spent a combined total of $4.8 million in
1983 and '84 up to the primary election.
Sen. Jesse Helms spent 6.3 million in the
same period. One guy, and he didn't
even have any competition in the
primary to speak of. So, to reach the
same number of voters in the same state
at the same time, Helms spent three
times as much as gubernatorial can-
didate D.M. Faircloth ($2.07 million),
and more than four times as much as the
top two candidates, Rufus Edmisten and
Eddie Knox (about $1.22 million and
$1.49 million respectively).
Helms' challenger, Gov. James B.
Hunt Jr would look like a lavish
spender by comparison too, if it weren't
for Helms. With campaign expenditures
of about $3.2 million through the
primary (and no significant in-party
competition), Hunt doubled Knox and
Edmisten's totals and spent about half
as much again as Faircloth.
Why the big difference? I guess there
is an argument that the Senate seat is
more important than the governor's of-
fice, so it's got a larger price tag. But
that's a hard case to prove, and I doubt
many would agree a senator directly af-
fects his constituents' daily lives much
more than the governor. The basic logic
is this: they're pitching to the same au-
dience, so why the extravagent sums?
Remember, Edmisten and Knox won
with those comparitively low expen-
ditures, they didn't get blown away.
Each senatorial camp will have its
own excuse for the multi-millions.
Hunt's people will say they have to
spend all that money because Helms is
doing it; after all, Helms' 1978 re-
election campaign was the single most
expensive non-presidential campaign in
U.S. history. And Helms is going to
argue that the media in North Carolina
is so pro-Hunt that it takes more money
than has ever been spent before just to
correct the injustice.
At the risk of sounding partisan
(which has never stopped me before),
the vicious circle seems to start with
Helms. He does hold the national record
for a Senate campaign, and he's about
to set a new one. Hunt is spending
roughly half as much as Helms, and is
losing ground in the polls as a result. So,
there seems only one thing to do: N.C.
campaign spending limits.
If a president can be elected on less
than a dime per citizen, then a N.C.
senator ought not need a dollar per
citizen just to make it to the May-
primary, as did Helms, or 50 cents a
head, as did Hunt. If a dime per person
is good enough for the White House,
and 20 cents per tarheel will win the
gubernatorial primary, then about a
quarter per citizen seems a reasonable
limit for a senate race. In North
Carolina, that's less than S2 million.
Hunt's already a million over; Helms
has already tripled it. And there's still
six months to go before November.
All right, let's allow them another $2
million to get to November After all
the gubernatorial candidate's will dou-
ble their expenditures by then too So
what if we elect the president for
than a dime, this is home; these guys are
from the neighborhood. So $4 mi
for the Senate race, per candidate. I
That's still about 66 cents a citizen -
that ought to be plenty. But Heirr.
already $2 million over that figure, and
it's just May; Hunt is less than a mil n

Of course, state spending limits wiD
never happen. The Federal Elect:
Commission can enforce them because
they offer matching funds to tnj can-
didate who follows the rules, raises a
certain amount per state, and stays

Capitalistic Academics; Or, Marketing The Humanities
The University of Texas at Austin recently raised
$32 million for 32 endowed professorships. That
public college also owns parts of several oil wells,
which bring several million dollars to the university
each year. In an effort to find a similar home-grown
endowment source, ECU administrators last week
had a meeting of the minds to look for the pot at the
end of the Down East rainbow. The following is a
partial transcript of the meeting, brought to you
Watergate-style from the dark reaches of the
chancellor's office:
Well gents, what have you
Chancellor Ho well:
Assistant to the Chancellor Dick Blake: Looks to
me tike we've got several options. There's a peat min-
inf operation going up near the coast that the govern-
ment's sunk millions into already. Supposed to be the-
energy wave of the future. Turns peat swamps into
methanoi gas. If we could get a piece of that action,
who knows where it might lead.
Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs Volpe:
Good, Blake, except they cancelled that project when
they realized it was destroying the environment and
wasting millions. Government pulled out and took its
Blake: Damn, I knew we should have taken out
some investment insurance on that thing. We could
be raking it in now.
Howeli: Next idea.
Vice Chancellor for Student Life Elmer Meyer:
Well, when I was at Cornell
Howeli: Hold it, Elmer, another Cornell story?
Why do you always have to bring Yankees into stuff
like this?
Blake: I know this bookie who could give us real
good odds on a Sherron-Harris nuclear plant shut-
down. They've already cancelled three of those
babies and it's just a matter of time before the last
one goes. If we just pick a date when they'll nix that
last one, and I'll call a couple of buddies at CP&L
heck, we can make a pretty penny on that one.
Howeli: Let's think on that one a while, Dick.
Blake: Do you know how 9-2 odds pays off?
Howeli: Can it, Colonel. Next.
Volpe: You know, it seems to me we can get some
of the academic departments in on this and just direct
some of their research projects in a direction that's a
little more financially practical.
Howeli: Such as?
Volpe: Well, take that archeological excavation of
the Monitor in the coast. If we get the divers to bring
up a few artifacts and trinkets, we can set up a little
gift shop on coast and sell the things for a pretty pen-
ny. You have any idea how much a rich housewife
from Poughkeepsie would give for that anchor? It's
just rusting away in a science lab when it could be
pulling in the big bucks.
Howeli: I think Angelo's on to something here
Volpe: We'd just have to get us good gimmick like
say, "Monitor Memorabalia: Trinkets to Treasure
from the Civil War. Brought to you from the sea's
depths by the ECU underwater archeology team
Meyer: You know, we tried something similar in
Ithaca once. Cornell started to
Howeli: Elmer, I warned you.
Volpe: I was figuring maybe tying in the an-
throplogy teams that are digging up those Indian
sites. If we could get a few arrowheads and clay pots
from those sites, do you know how much we could
bring in at say, $3 an arrowhead? There must be
millions of those things out there.
Blake: I bet I could work out a little marketing
scheme with Stuckey's or somebody. You know,
"free authentic Indian arrowhead with every box
Stuckey's peanut brittle or ten gallons of gas" �
something like that, with the university taking, say,
30 percent of the gross.
Howeli: I bet we could have more endowed chairs
than Chapel Hill can shake a stick at!
Volpe: If we can get the geology department to
stop fooling around with sedimentary deposits and
get into some marketable rocks � quartz, fool's
gold, stuff like that � we would have a whole sale
business going second to none before you know it!
Blake: Maybe we could get those cartography
students in geography to stop wasting ink on city
planning maps and get into something more prac-
tical. For instance, if they whipped up some treasure
maps tracing routes all over Down East, and we
planted some of those shiny rocks and arrow heads
and stuff at the end of each one, we'd be raking in
the bucks hand over fist by selling those suckers as
the family dream vacation.
Howeli: I like it, I tike it!
Meyer: Don't you think
Howeli: One more word about Cornell and you're
back in the Whichard building.
Meyer: I was just going to say I think we should
remember academics have to come first, and some
valuable research might be lost if put our best
students and teachers to marketing off their most
valuable artifacts and skills.
Blake: What better lesson could they get out of col-
lege? They're learning a marketable skill they can use
out in the real world. We're doing them a service,
showing them how to make a living with these skills
that are going nowhere fast Do have any idea how
many archeaologists work for IBM? Not many And
if a geologist doesn't work for Texaco, he's out of a
job. We're doing these kids a favor
Volpe: Dick's right. The English department's
already got the nght idea. They're playing down the
Shakespeare and stuff and touting this new grad pro-
gram in technical writing. Why sit around reading a
bunch of Medieval books that sound tike the Bible
when we could teach those kids to write computer in-
structions, car repair manuals, business letters Do
something useful.
Howeli: I think we're on to something here. This

Blake: So the Sherron-Harris deal is out?

was extremely curious about what
made these games so popular.
Manager Ron Moye displayed

is expecially good for actors,
because during the game players

throughout the entire
"adventure" or until the player
"dies It is possible, he said, to
become very attached to the par-
ticular character. "My characters
have things about me in them
Both Moye, Scott, Sundwall,
and Tursam agreed that although
the games have received some
negative criticism, they are actual-
ly very educational. "They open
minds to the fact that there is a
relationship between good and
evil Move said. Most games can
be played by children as young as
ten years of age.
Scott and Moye said the
greatest educational benefits pro-
bably occur in reading. Before
playing any of the games the basic
rulebooks must be thoroughly
read and comprehended. "If you
want to know all the little tricks
you have to keep reading Scott
said. Players are also exposed to
percentages, simple algebra, and
popular writers. "You're always
learning. That's what makes it in-
teresting Scott said. "It also
gets people together
Moye explained that there were
several types of games. For in-
stance, there are adventure games,
family games, history games, fan-
tasy games, and war games. Ex-
amples of these are "Top Secret

six dice (one 4-sided, one 6-sided,
one 8-sided, one 10-sided, one
12-sided, and one 20-sided). The
objective of many of the games is
to stay alive and be as prosperous
as possible.
Perhaps the best description of
what the games do was written by
Moldvay. "A good D & D cam-
paign is similar to the creation of
a fantasy novel, written by the

ets, The Box Tops, and The
Orlons. With over 25 top forty
hits between them, the groups
contributed significantly to the
history of rock music during the
fifties and sixties.
Bill Haley & the Comets started
the rock & roll revolution in 1952
with the song "Rock-a-Beatin'
Boogie" from which the phrase
"Rock, Rock, Rock everybody,
roll, roll, roll everybody" was
adopted by top-rated disc jockey
Alan Freed as the name for this
new sound. The Comets then put
the first rock & roll record on the
charts with "Crazy Man Crazy"
in 1953. Their next release
"Shake, Rattle & Roll" was their
major breakthrough, going to
12th in the U.S. and 4th in
England in 1955. The follow-up
"Dim Dim the Lights" went one
notch higher in the U.S. Later in
1955 "Rock Around the Clock"
was rescued from its initial status
as a 1954 flop and was used as the
theme song for the teen rebellion
movie Blackboard Jungle. It has
gone on to become one of the all-
time best selling singles with over
25 million sales and countless re-
releases, hitting 39th in the U.S.
as late as 1974.
A series of hits continued
through the fifties with "Razzle
Dazzle" and "See You Later
Alligator The Comets had even
greater success in England with
top ten releases "Rip It Up
"Rockin' Through The Rye
"Don't Knock the Rock and
"Rock-a-Beatin' Boogie plus
most of the U.S. top forty hits
succeeding there also. Times had
changed by the sixties and The
Comets' success was limited to re-

Rudy Pompelli died February' 5,
1976 and Bill Haley died Februarv
9, 1981.
The Box Tops were one of the
premier acts of 1967-69 with their
first single "The Letter" going to
No. 1 worldwide in 1967. This
success was never equalled, but six
more top forty singles lasted
through 1969 � "Neon
Rainbow "Cry Like A Baby
"Choo Choo Train "I Met Her
In Church "Sweet Cream
Ladies and their last top forty
hit, "Soul Deep Lead singer
Alex Chilton left in 1970 to form
Big Star, which succumbed to
commercial failure after several
albums. Since then variousperson-
nel have toured as The Box Tops.
The Orlons were an early sixties
girl-group with five top forty hits
including "Wah Watusi "Don't
Hang Up "South Street "Not
Me and "Cross Fire
The crowd enthusiastically
greeted the Orlons as they started
the performance. Even though
there were no original members
performing, they put on a
fabulous show for the initially
small but continuously growing
audience. They worked hard to
get the crowd into the act and the
audience participation really
enhanced their stage perfor-
mance. At first the reaction was
muted, but after yours truely
"volunteered" to join their act as
the "Bill" to be fought over by
the three female vocalists, the in-
terest really picked up.
The Orlons did a superb job
covering other artists' hits such as
"What A Feelin "The Boy
From New York City and
"Heatwave They also played
"Don't Hang Up "South
Street and ended up with a
number of persons from the au-
dience on stage dancing to the
"Wah Watusi Some of the most
entertainment came from the con-
stant attempts of one participant
to flee from the scene, only to be
restrained by The Orlons. It
would really be nice, howeer, if
this group performed their own
songs without using the facade of
a name none were originally con-
nected with.
The Box Tops were a tremen-
dous disappointment. This time
the absence of any original
members was obvious as lead
vocalist (it would be too kind to
describe him as a singer) Lenny
Longo "machoed" his way
through the hits of The Box Tops,
seemingly with visions of Wayne
Newton in Las Yegas dancing in
his head. He started rather well
with a decent version of "Bo Did-
dly and went directly downhill
from there. The musicians ap-
peared to have been recycled toy
soldiers from Gulliver's Travels in
Fortunately, for those still left
after The Box Tops' "perfor-
mance Bill Haley's Comets
quickly regained the intensity of
The Orlons and had the crowd
rockin to the beat of the
rock'a'beatin' boogie, even
though no original members were
present. At least vocalist Joe
Rand was old enough to have
known Bill Haley in 'he fifties. He
really did an excellent job of copy-
ing the vocals.
The entire band w as truely pro-
fessional and musually hot. They
caught the sound of theactual
crowd dancing throughout their
sets. They played all their major
hits and gave a good sampling of
fifties music by other artists, such
as "Rockin' Robin "Chantilly
Lace" and "At the Hop The
sax player's imitation of Little
Richard had the audience roaring
and the group did a good job of
highlighting each member for dif
ferent tunes. Of course they ended
with "Rock Around the Clock" ,
before their encore and left the j
crowd wanting more.
Anyone having the chance to
see The Orlons or Bill Haley's '
Comets should take advantage of :
it. Unless the Box Tops were total- f
ly revamped (and 1 do mean total-
ly) I wouldn't recommend seeing
them except with good ear muffs, r

Minorities Discuss Feelings A bout Their Race
It is strange what the color
black has upon our society. Terms
beginning with the word generally
have a negative connotation. For
example, most people do not want
to be "blackmailed" or
"blacklisted known dealings
with the "blackmarket" may
make one the "black sheep" of
the family. Being black, do I also
instill those negative feelings? My
need to answer this question was
one reason why I enrolled at East
Carolina University. Two other
ECU students shared their
thoughts about being black at a
predominantly white school.
The first person I interviewed
was Shelby, a junior from
Jacksonville, N.C. Shelby was
undecided about her major but
tends to be leaning towards a
psychology degree. She seemed
coy, and hesitated to answer ques-
tions directly.
My second interviewee,
Charlotte, resides in Mur-
freesboro, N.C. and is a junior in
the special education department.
Charlotte was more outspoken
than Shelby and seemed more
Question: Would you enroll in a
predominantly black school?
Both students said no without
the slightest hesitation, but for
different reasons.
Shelby: I've been around white
people the majority of my educa-
tion. When I go get a job they
(whites) will be there so I might as
well get used to being around
Charlotte: I wanted to get away
from my friends. After gradua-
tion I was trying to find out who I
was, and I thought I would be bet-
ter off by myself.
Both felt they stood a better
chance getting a job in their major
with a degree from a
predominantly white school than
from a black one.
Question: Why should there be
black universities If blacks don't
support them?
Shelby: Oh, I'm all for them.
My sister went to A & T Universi-
ty. There are people whose needs
are fulfilled by black universities,
but they just don't fulfill mine.
Charlotte: They are supported.
Just because I didn't go doesn't
mean that I don't think they are
important. They (black schools)
Some Easy Steps For A
Successful Clambake
Suff Writer
Face it. You won't be living at
the beach this summer (You still
have till the 28th to withdraw
from school). You'll be going to
the same hour-and-a-half classes
everyday. And you'll have to deal
with everything else typical of a
summer in Greenville, like look-
ing at people go around wearing
next to nothing; deciding what
night club � every one from Papa
Katz to The Attic fighting for a
part of the shrunken summer
market � has the best happy
hour; whether to eat Italian,
Chinese, Mexican, Greek, steak,
seafood, or cook-out yourself.
You can go roller-skating, play
putt-putt, ride a horse, go golfing,
play some pool, go to Minges or
Memorial Gyms and swim or
work-out, join one of Greenville's
many health clubs, go to the
Museum, play intramural sports,
catch just about any current
movie, or catch a not-so-current
movie for free at Hendrix
Theatre. Shall I continue?
Get the point? If you think
Greenville is a boring place to be
during the summer it may be that
you are just a boring person to be
with. Pick any of the suggestions
above � by no means is it an ex-
haustive list. How about a cook-
out? Gosh darn it, why don't
Call up four or five of your
favorite bored friends and tell
them they have plans for the after-
noon and evening. Tell them that
they are going to a real New
England Clambake. As host, the
only items needed that a typical
college student might not have are
a 20-quart steamer and some
cheese cloth. You can even do the
cooking indoors, but since it's
summer, outdoors is probably the
better choice.
Pick the most responsible guest,
if there is one, and ask them to
stop at Farm Fresh on the way
over. Give them this grocery list:
3 broiler-fryer chickens, split
6 potatoes
6 medium-sized onions
48 small clams
4-6 lobsters (optional)
You already have six ears of corn,
in husks, soaked in salted water
for one hour. It might take this
person a little while in the store,
so call up the least responsible
guest (there probably is one), and
tell them to pick up two or three
cases of beer and their collection
of Jimmy Buffet albums.
After everyone has arrived,
done a few twelve-ounce curls,
and listened to side two of One
Particular Harbour, take that
specialguest over to the grill. This
is what you do:
1. Place eight cups water in bot-
tom of 20-quart steamer cover
with upper section; place generous
layer of washed seaweed on sec-
. Wrap chicken pieces in cheese
cjoth, tie corners and place on
3. Wrap unpeeled potatoes and
onions in foil and place on
4. Wrap corn in cheese cloth and
place on onions and potatoes.
5. Wrap clams in cheese cloth
(four bundles); place on corn.
6. Place lobsters on clams.
7. Top ingredients with seaweed.
Let this steam for about one-and-
a-half hours while you all are �
come on, I don't have to tell you
When it's done, have plenty of
melted butter, cocktail sauce and
finger bowls. Remember that you
are in Greenville so put an out-
door bug candle on the picnic
When you are finished feasting
you should be in the mood. Give
Paul Gianino, Food and Beverage
Manager of The Ramada Inn, a
call and tell him how much you
loved his recipe. You might as
well invite him and Marie to cut
out of work tomorrow and come
along with everybody cutting
classes to go to the beach.
give many blacks a chance they
may not have gotten if there
weren't black schools.
Question: Have you encountered
any difficulties at ECU merely
because you were black?
Shelby: No, the problems I've
had were typical of all students. I
don't feel because I'm black I've
been treated differently.
Charlotte: Well, once I asked
these three white girls to hold the
elevator, and they let the door
close. I had to stick my foot bet-
ween the doors to catch it. When
they stepped out I pushed one of
the girls in the back. Afterwards I
felt sorry that I had done it.
Question: How would you feel if
you were the only black person in
the ciass?
Both encountered this situa-
Shelby: Generally it is no pro-
blem. I've acquired many white
friends, and one of them is
generally in the class with me. It's
important to have friends you can
rely on in case you miss class.
Charlotte: On rare occasions I
feel trapped. I guess my imagina-
tion runs wild, but usually I tend

to do better because I push myself
a little harder. I guess I think I'm
representing the integrity of all
blacks. Maybe I'm trying to psych
myself out, but as long as it
works, I'll keep using it.
Question: How has your interac-
tion with professors been?
Shelby: Just fine. I feel they are
professionals and they have
treated me fairly. I've been
pleasantly surprised by their man-
Charlotte: Well, I generally
don't talk much with my pro-
fessors, but they seem to be all
right. If they hate my guts on the

outside, everything is okay. Just

Question: How do you feel about
the ratio of blacks to whites that
the federal government has re-
quired for schools in the UNC
school system?
Shelby: I think it is a good idea.
Since taxpayers are supporting
these universities, the admissions
should be regulated. If not, we
could get back to the times when
things were separate but sup-
posedly equal.
Charlotte: I really don't think it
will ever work. People are going
to go to the college they want. I
understand the logic, but I don't
think it's going to work the way it
was intended. Give the people
(university officials) a break. I
think they are doing a great job.
Question: How has the social life
at ECU affected you?
Shelby: I guess this is the one
area I don't enjoy about a white
school. The only thing these peo-
ple do is drink, drink, drink. I
generally stay in my room on
weekends, except occasionally I
may go to the movies if anything
good is playing.
Charlotte: I think it's great. I
don't party with crowds, so here 1
can be free. I go about my
business, and they (whites) go
about theirs. I don't have to
answer to anyone. Occasionally I
may go to a sports event, but I
seldom go to the movies at
Mendenhall. The people act so
Question: What is the one thing
you like or dislike the most about
Shelby: No one particular thing
stands out as far as "likes I
think ECU is a great school. I
would probably suggest it to my
younger friends as a great place
for an education. As far as
"dislikes" I guess I would have to
stick to the social life. I just don't
have as much fun here as I might
have somewhere else.
Charlotte: Well, probably that I
don't have any real peer pressure
here. I feel more relaxed � I en-
joy my freedom.

'Greatest Performance Ever"
ECU 4th Out Of 76
Staff Writer
The ECU men's track team had
their best meet qf the season
finishing fourth among a field of
6 teams at the IC4A Champion-
ships held in Philadelphia last
'it was simply the greatest
track performance we've ever
had head coach Bill Carson
proudly said. "There were over
1000 athletes. We dominated the
sprint field racking up 37 of our
total 41 points
Villanova placed first with 73
points followed by Maryland in
second with 56. Boston University
edged out ECU for third place
with 42 points.
Coach Carson was "a little
disappointed" because only the
top three teams received trophies.
"We really wanted that trophy
and Boston just beat us out for
it he said.
Following the Pirates were
Penn State in fifth place with 40
points, Ioana in sixth with 37 and
West Virginia with 32.
Teammates Chris Brooks, Er-
skine Evans, Nathan McCorkle
and Henry Williams topped West
Virginia by winning the 4x100
relay with a time of 40.22 seconds.
West Virginia finished second in
Unfortunately, Brooks was in-
jured in the relay and was unable
to compete in the long jump and
mile relay events.
Williams continued the fast
Pirate pace by winning the
100-meter dash with a time of
10.55. In the qualifying round for
the finals, Williams ran a 10.39.
According to Carson it was "the
second fastest time ever run at
East Carolina in the 100 meters
All-America Otis Melvin ran a
10.31 in the 100 meters for the
Pirates back in the late 1970's.
After running "a great leg on
the 4x100 relay Evans went on
to place third in the 100 meters
with a time of 10.64. However,
Carson said he "honestly felt that
the electronic timer was wrong. I
had him hand timed for 10.22
seconds, which is usually not that
far off the electronic time
McCorkle also ran in the 100
meters but was disqualified for
stepping on a line placing him out
of bounds. "It looked like we
we're going to wrap up the 100
meters Carson said. "We lost
some points with Nathan's dis-
In the 200-meter dash, Williams
placed second with a time of
21.114. "Henry had run eight
races in two days while the winner
from Princeton had only run in
three said Carson. "If not for
that, he would have won the
National and Olympic qualifier
Craig White added to the Pirate
success by placing third in the 110
high hurdles with a time of 14.09.
The mile relay team consisting
of Eddie Bradley, Vincent Epps,
Phillip Estes, and Ruben Pierce
placed sixth with a time of
3:12.45. "The mile relay team still
had a fast time even though
Brooks was out with an injury
Carson said.
If not for Brooks' injury and
McCorkle's disqualification, the
Pirates would have had a good
shot at the top three. "Those two
things cost us a sure third place,
and even a possible second Car-
son said.
Coach Carson was pleased with
the "immediate news coverage"
at the meet and beleives that the
Pirates gained tremendous
respect. "There were reporters
gathering around the winners
after every event Carson said.
"Henry had six or seven
newspapermen around him after
winning the 100 meters
The ECU men's track team
concludes the 1984 season having
gained tremendous respect
throughout the East Coast.
But, All-America candidates
White and Williams, the
"dynamic duo will have a
chance to add to the Pirate's
prestige and top record later in
May at the Nationals held in
Eugene, Oregon.
After winning the 100 meters at the IC4A's in Philadelphia, Henry
Williams only has a couple of weeks to prepare for the Nationals.
Pirates Get
LSU In '85
ECU will meet Louisiana State
University on the football field in
1985, Director of Athletics Dr.
Ken Karr announced late last
The contract between the two
schools is for one game only, to be
played at LSU on December 7,
"This is just another step in the
upgrading of the football schedule
at East Carolina Karr said in
making the announcement. "We
are trying to play as many
Southeastern Conference schools
as we possibly can because of the
stature of that conference
LSU thus becomes the second
SEC school on the 1985 schedule.
It was announced just a short time
back that East Carolina and
Auburn would meet in a two-
game series in 1985 and 1986 �
both games at Auburn.
The Pirates played their first
SEC team last year when they lost
a 24-17 decison to fifth-ranked
LSU played in the 1982 Orange
Bowl and recently named Bill
Arnsparger as its new coach. Arn-
sparger was once the head coach
of the New York Giants and most
recently was the defensive coor-
dinator of the Miami Dolphins.
The addition of LSU to the
1985 schedule means the Pirates
now will face Miami of Florida,
South Carolina, Tulsa, Temple,
Southwestern Louisiana, Auburn,
N.C. State and Southern
Mississippi in that season.

NFL Picks Greenville Dry
The ECU football team lost
eight of its graduating seniors, the
third highest total in the nation, to
the National Football League's
draft earlier this month, but
Coach Ed Emory is still optimistic
about the upcoming football
season due to an excellent
recruiting year.
Of the players drafted, Steve
Hamilton, a 6-4, 253-pound
defensive end, was the first Pirate
to go. Hamilton was picked up by
the Washington Redskins in the
second round.
"I'm very happy about the
whole situation Hamilton said.
"I talked with Coach Gibbs and
they said they plan to use me at a
down defensive end
First-team All-America Terry
Long, a 6-0, 280-pound offensive
guard, was next to go as he was
picked up by the Pittsburgh
Steelers in the fourth round.
Although Long is one of the
quickest players in the nation for
his size, he was thought too short
by many teams to be given higher
Defensive back Clint Harris,
linebacker Jeff Pegues and defen-
sive end Hal Stephens all went in
the fifth round. The New York
Giants got Harris, the Redskins
selcted Pegues and Stephens was
nabbed by the Los Angeles Rams.
The Rams also picked Norwood
Vann, a 6-2, 225-pound tight end,
in the temh round. Fullback
Ernest Byner was picked up later
in the same round by the
Cleveland Browns.
The final Pirate to be drafted
was 6-6, 257-pound offensive
tackle John Robertson who went
to the Philadephia Eagles in the
eleventh round.
Kevin Ingram and Mike Grant
skipped the draft and are current-
ly playing in the Canadian and
United States Football Leagues'
respectively, but are still expected
to go high in the NFL's suplimen-
tal draft held in June.
If Ingram and Grant had
elected to wait for the draft, ECU
would have had the second
highest number of players
drafted, surpassing Illinois who
had nine.
Emory said the football pro-
gram suffered a great loss with the
departure of the 1984 senior class,
but was confident, in time, that
the incoming recruits would be
able to fill the vacated spots.
"Needs were great at quarter-
back, defensive back and defen-
sive end Emory said. "We feel
we have captured a great group in
all three areas
Emory also said last year's
recruiting campaign was more na-
tionwide in scope due to the
Pirates success during the 1983
football season. "We went right
to the wire with some of the
players and recruited them away
from other very good football
schools he said.
The 1984 recruiting class con-
tains 24 high school players and
six junior college stars. The
following is a brief summary of
each recruit:
ABRAMS, Quarterback, 6-0,

Tigers Set Records
Detroit Tigers must be setting a
record for the number of records
they're chasing.
Detroit, off to the best start in
baseball history at 32-5, hosted
the Cincinnati Reds Monday in a
sandlot benefit exhibition game
before embarking on another
record quest.
The Tigers make the tough trip
to the West Coast to play the
teams it just hosted � California,
Seattle and Oakland starting
tonight with the Angels.
Detroit is unbeaten in 14 road
games this season, only two off
the American League standard of
the 1912 Washington Senators.
Baseball, Lowry says, should be
put in perspective. It is not more
important than life and should
not be treated as such.
"People hang on what goes on
on the field he said. "That
downplays life a bit.
"If somebody hits a home run,
that's news he said. "But when
something happens in somebody's
life � that's important.
"It's just a game said the
rookie who made the jump from
Double-A ball to the majors
because he hits left-handed, is a
solid catcher and because John
Wockenfuss got traded. "Don't
make it out to be more than what
it is.
"I get caught up in baseball,
too. There's a lot of other stuff
that could be a lot worse for
young people than baseball
Manager Sparky Anderson re-
joins the club today after flying to
California last Thursday to attend
to the funeral for his father, who
died an hour before he was
scheduled to undergo surgery for
removal of a lung tumor.
The club remains unfazed and
seemingly unaffected by its fast
start, which is good because other
clubs have put up some pretty
good numbers for it to shoot at.
Next in view is the 41-9 start of the
1946 Boston Red Sox.
Each of Detroit's three main
starting pitchers � Jack Morris,
Dan Petry and Milt Wilcox �
isn't pitching very well now and
admits it.
The whole team mouths the
"we're taking them one game at a
time" cliche � and the players
not only act like they believe it,
but play like it.
Rookie catcher Dwight Lowry
is a good example.
He stroked his first major-
league home run Sunday in a 4-3
victory over Oakland, a bases-
empty blast in the second that
made it 3-1, and then shrugged the
whole thing off � even saying it
didn't matter which of the two
baseballs he was presented with
was the one he hit for the home
'The only thing I was thinking
running around the bases was to
get back to the dugout as fast as I
could Lowry said. "It's just as
much for everybody else as it is
for me
